S9E16 “Bali Highs And Lows”

By Stars 99

RHOOC S9 cast

Note: I have gotten feedback that I have not been my usual snarky self – Well, at least not last week… So I apologize to you all for that and will I will do my best to pump up the snark this week! Lol… You have been warned… That is all…

Remember Last Week…

“Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, I’m gonna eat some worms Lizzie” (hereafter referred to as “NLM-EHM-IGESW Lizzie” had that big, lavish birthday party that no one bothered to come to… Vicki referred to Lizzie and Danielle as “Dumb and Dumber”… It was the episode after which Tamra completely self-destructed – probably to the point of potentially losing her job… But shock of all shocks, Heather manages to broker a friendship summit with Shannon so they all can go to Bali! Voila! Hocus pocus –  Waive a wand – and Magically everything’s perfectly fine!  Woo hoo! Watch out Bali! 

This week’s episode begins… Surprise, surprise – Everyone is packing, packing, packing! This was the most boring part of the whole episode which was hilarious to me, btw… Since they are all rockets scientists they wonder what they should pack but then finally figure out it’s going to be hot, humid and raining. Wow, really? Ya think? Gosh, if only we had a way to learn about the weather in other parts of the world… Heather is hoping for a peaceful spiritual cleansing moment that they all need for their relationships. They all seem to be hopeful that they have good times and great bonding moments. I’m kinda hoping they get lost there permanently – but then again, that’s just me.  

Tamra is packing while talking to Heather on the phone. In this week’s segment of, “I Kid You Not,” Tamra the pot, calls Lizzie black when she actually says, “Lizzie I’m finding is very self-absorbed…” There’s some back story to that relating to “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie’s birthday party that wasn’t – but we’ll get to that later in this episode…  

Vicki is at work talking to a couple of her employees who MUST be SOOOOOOOOOOO excited she’s leaving for several days they can barely contain their excitement! You see the joy bubbling up in their faces… Control freak Vicki is panicked because she’s not sure what kind of internet connectivity she will have while in Bali.  Her employees try to be sad and apologetic when they tell her that she probably won’t be able to get in touch with them. Darn, darn! That will just not do! Since Vicki feels the need to micro-manage her employees down to the miniscule points of making sure they get to work on time, take their 1 hour lunch, and leave on time…  

Sensing Vicki’s anxiety about not being in constant communication with them, her ever helpful employee nicely assures Vicki that she will probably be staying in a hut while in Bali… Vicki’s head whips around as she shrieks, “What?”  

Then you hear it – I imagine in my mind’s eye that as the door closed behind Vicki when she left for Bali – You could hear a rumbling off in the distance.  Slowly it builds as the rumbling gets closer and louder. The walls reverberate from the pressure that’s been slowly building that was caused by living under an ever critical eye of a hyper-controlling dictator… They try valiantly to keep a lid on it but they finally just can’t contain themselves… All of the sudden, all of Vicki’s employees as if on cue from a movie director, run into Coto Insurance’s leather wallpapered hallway and in unison, joyfully shout, “FREEDOM!”  Well, that’s the way I imagined it happened, anyway… lol. 

Everyone seems cranky that the trip to Bali is NOT a quick one. Vicki whines that it’s going to take them 900 hours to get there and that she’s going to spend Christmas, New Year’s and Halloween while on this trip. Oh cute, Heather is filming a little travelogue for us about their journey. Heather narrates, “First 30 seconds of flight… And so far – So good!” Keep your fingers crossed!

Shannon supplementsHeather films Shannon as she shows us all of her supplements that she brought with her in her carryon flight bag. Heather wonders where the Xanax is… As she walks down the aisle towards Vicki, Heather correctly predicts she will find Vicki working.  The next segment is being filmed at 2:00 AM – Heather is wide awake. Others are not. She wonders if Vicki is snoring and tries to get footage of it… After a 2 hour layover in Hong Kong they arrive safely in Bali, Indonesia. Heather is pleased that all 6 of them made it okay through the 23 hour flight with their 25 pieces of luggage. 

As everyone is trying to get situated and the luggage is being loaded, everyone is already complaining about how humid it is. Vicki gets into the driver’s seat and turns on the a/c full blast… And then, because she hasn’t yet had the opportunity to piss off Bali, she starts to incessantly beep the horn… As they drive to get to their final resort destination, our six little tourists start to take in the scenery that’s whizzing by them. Tamra, ever the optimist, thought Bali would be more like Bora Bora and not like Tijuana (I would think most people from this area would interpret that as a purposeful slam… btw). Vespas are zipping in and out between cars on the roadway and some of them are carrying entire families. The women screech and scream like this is the first time they’ve ever venture to dip a toe outside the orange curtain. They embarrass me.  There should be laws preventing tourist cruelty to other countries.  

The resort is amazeballs and no one has to argue about who gets what room because everyone gets their own individual room. There are full length windows in front of the showers so be careful – That is unless you intend to put on a show of some kind. I think Brandi from Beverly Hills would like to do that – but that’s a whole nuther Oprah. They’ve been on the road for 25 hours but instead of getting some much needed sleep – They decide to go to dinner. Huh? I’d get a quick snack and then sleep… but that’s just me. Tamra would rather just go to sleep, too. Rut roh… Did I REALLY just agree with Tamra? Whoa… 

As they’re walking to the restaurant, Captain Ungrateful Vicki, you know the one who called OTHER people, “Dumb” and “Dumber” stupidly complains they traveled so far just to get somewhere that looks “Hawaii-ish.” Okay, I’ve had about enough of this whining you ungrateful witch with a b… You are getting PAID a boatload of money to be on this show for a couple months of work; you are traveling to a place most people can only dream of visiting; and, all of your expenses are being paid. Boo freakin’ hoo… Send in the violins (Awww… Just thought of our beloved Nancy… I miss her)!

Tamra CrownFor some reason I tense up as this group sits down and seating arrangements are being made. Whew… made it through that one… I think they’re just too tired to fight about who is sitting next to each other. Champagne and cocktails are flowing… In the spirit of their destination and knowing that they would inevitably embarrass themselves so badly they won’t want to be able to be recognized, Heather has brought along playful Balinese crowns for everyone to wear.  Shannon’s glad cuz it will hide her frizzy hair. Vicki thinks they all look like dumbasses. Although I think Vicki is a poo-poo head for calling others, “Dumb” and “Dumber” – I have to say that the last thing I would want to do is put a cardboard crown with tendrils hanging down on my sweaty forehead. Lizzie, as always, thinks she looks great in a crown.

Vicki CrownOne of the appetizers being served is something called “prawn mousse.” Vicki wants clarification of what it is – Is it “moose” as in the animal?  The ever helpful Heather tells her it’s not “moose” but that it’s whipped like the consistency of hair mousse… I probably would have gone with chocolate mousse as the explanation – But then again, I generally associate things with chocolate and I haven’t just traveled 25 hours, either… lol. Some people are looking at their food with critical eyes and seemingly after smelling it, they turn their noses up at it… But Heather is blithely enjoying hers…lol. After dinner, Heather announces she wants to meet at the beach in the morning.

The next day, everyone obediently rendezvoused at the beach. As they walk across the sand complaining that it’s hot (They LIVE in a coastal area – You’d think they’d know about hot sand, duh!)… Shannon decides she wants to go kayaking with Vicki and that she wants to share a kayak. Tamra laughs and hopes Shannon can swim because she thinks Vicki “is a klutz.” Horror of horrors – There is no drink holder in the kayak for their cocktails – I thought Shannon was going to get out of the kayak right then and there…lol. The math is done for us: Cocktails + kayaks = crazy… 

S and V KayakVicki tries to get out of the kayak and ends up flipping it over. Shannon flips out because she doesn’t like fish or the ocean. The cocktails go flying… And they failed to retrieve the glasses (may have been plastic – but neither threw them at each other, fortunately). They couldn’t find the glasses? Puhleeze, they were in like 10 feet of water it looked like to me… I’m so embarrassed by these people. They come to shore whining about how they need cocktails.  

Lizzie and DanielleMeanwhile, Danielle and “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie are talking about Vicki’s “Dumb” and “Dumber” comment. “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie seems to be used to Vicki’s insults so she’s not blown away by it. Danielle, however, Danielle thinks she needs to talk to Vicki about it. “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie wonders why Danielle cares what Vicki thinks. Lizzie says that her beef is with Tamra – because she’s a friend to your face but talks about you behind your back. Ummm… Isn’t that what you’re doing, too? 

Heather tells everyone they need to leave soon or else they’re going to miss the elephants! Elephants?? Yippie! I love elephants! I hope they don’t screw this up…lol. My latest favorite elephant video is of a baby elephant seeing the beach for the first time:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAYCbnEZ4p8 

Our favorite American tourists pile into the van that’s taking them on the 30 minute jaunt to Elephantland or wherever they’re going. Vicki does not want to sit in the back because she gets car sick. Unfortunately, Vicki uses the excuse that since she’s the oldest one there and that she should get preferential seating. Actually, you should get preferential seating CUZ YOU GET CARSICK… I don’t understand why she didn’t sit in the front – If someone says they get car sick – That really trumps everything, no?  

As they travel towards their destination, Vicki is in the way back of the van getting sicker and sicker. She begins to dry heave. Everyone tells her not to throw up but Tamra tells her to throw up in her “Louis V.” Danielle looks like if Vicki gets sick then she will get sick, too. After imploring the driver over and over again to pull over – they finally find a good place where they can all get out of the van and get some much needed air.  Impatient Heather who really, really doesn’t want to miss the elephants and who seems also to be competing on “The Last Comic Standing” asks Vicki if she could vomit quicker. Hi-lar-i-ous! After being freaked out by a dog who probably was looking for a meal but was probably disappointed on the lack of meat on Heather’s leg (at least according to Tamra), our tourists once again resume their journey to Elephantland. 

They arrive at Elephantland and Heather decides that she should have champagne when she rides on the elephant. Right… Because riding an elephant is oh, so smooth and not bumpy at all…lol – Not conducive for motion sickness or anything…lol. As Tamra and Vicki walk towards some stairs, Tamra tells Vicki not to fall as they take their first step up. But Tamra is the one who immediately trips…lol. It was hi-lar-i-ous, too! I generally don’t laugh at someone tripping on stairs – but this was so danged funny because she had just warned Vicki… And because Tamra was the one doing the tripping…lol. Sorry… This prompts me to share a gratuitous Big Bang Theory Quote of the Day: 

Sheldon: Do you want to hear an interesting thing about stairs?
Leonard: Not really!
Sheldon: If the height of a step is off by as little as two millimeters, most people will trip.
Leonard: I don’t care. 2 millime–? That doesn’t seem right.
Sheldon: It’s true. I did a series of experiments when I was 12. My father broke his clavicle.
Leonard: Is that why they sent you to boarding school?
Sheldon: No. That was the result of my work with lasers.

Heather and V on elephantVicki and Heather pair up to ride the elephant. As they get on and get settled, Vicki keeps screeching that they’re going to tip over. Heather astutely blames herself for being in this predicament since she was the one who wanted to ride with Vicki in the first place. I don’t think I’d want to be around elephants when someone is screeching. But perhaps it’s just me… 

Shannon and Lizzie pair up to ride together on their elephant. However, instead of drinking in their fascinating surroundings and enjoying the ride – They inexplicably choose to start talking about Vicki literally right behind her back.  

Lizzie and Shannon elephantIn this week’s edition of “I KID YOU NOT,” Shannon shockingly says of Vicki, “She’s such drama… Sometimes it’s like – Can we take a break from it?  It’s exhausting…” Okay, this too – Was hi-lar-i-ous! It’s not like Shannon IS the pot calling the kettle black or anything… You just hafta laugh at these women.  “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie tells Shannon that Vicki was screaming like this just before she got on the bus for her birthday party. “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie also has a bone to pick with Tamra about that night because evidently Tamra sent a negative text to Danielle about Lizzie’s dress. “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie wonders why Tamra didn’t text her the next day about being sorry that she wasn’t able to be or to ask how it went. Shannon’s just glad that Lizzie is confiding in her and that Lizzie must feel like she’s not such a bad person… After the elephant played a harmonica it’s back to the resort for our weary travelers.  I skipped the gratuitous talk about elephant genitalia. You’re welcome. 

Daneille dumb and dumber dinnerBack at the resort, as everyone sits down for dinner, they all decide they need cocktails.  Heather tells us that although she is sweating profusely, on the good news side of things she is losing weight just sitting there. Vicki and Tamra talk about going skinny dipping but Tamra thinks they can get arrested for that.  Vicki receives confirmation from the waiter that they won’t get arrested for that… Suddenly, I’m askeered…

For some reason Danielle decides to share that her butt itches (because of what she’s sitting on). Tamra says that it’s good luck. Everyone looks at Tamra like she’s an alien. Tamra insists it’s true.  Tamra turns to Vicki for confirmation but gets nothing but a blank stare. Heather helpfully offers that perhaps Tamra means something like when your palms itch that money’s coming? Vicki patronizingly pats Tamra on the head and talks about returning “back to the Center” to her padded cell… Tamra asks if Vicki is calling her “crazy.” Danielle says that Vicki called her “Dumb.” Rut roh… I smell trouble! Danielle wants to know why Vicki referred to her and “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie as being “Dumb” and “Dumber” on Lizzie’s birthday night.  Danielle tells Vicki that she was very bothered by that comment. 

Vicki says that she’s very sorry… But that it was meant like a “Three Stooges” reference and that it was just a slip of the tongue. Now THAT’s a big freakin’ hunk of bologna! “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie clues in the others as to what exactly transpired that night. She referred to Vicki’s screaming on the bus earlier that day as an example of how Vicki sounded before she got into her birthday party bus. Tamra presses for more details. “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie explains that when Vicki found out that none of the women were there that she started screaming uncontrollably. 

Vicki disagrees with “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie’s version of the events of the night.  Vicki started screaming at “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie that she didn’t call her “Dumb” and “Dumber” to her face. Right… Like calling her “Dumb” and “Dumber” behind her back is any better…lol. After screaming that she didn’t call her “Dumb” to her face a couple more times… Vicki just wants just to move on. Isn’t that how it always is? The person who causes the hurt feelings wants to say a magical “I’m sorry” and poof everything’s all better! Puhleeze…

Tamra jokeEntitled “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie says that all she did was have a birthday party but everyone acted like crap to her – But all she did was have a birthday and that she’s so sorry… Tamra wants clarification again.  “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie tells Tamra that she could have called her the morning of her birthday party to tell her she wasn’t coming so she would have known earlier without sitting on the bus in humiliation waiting for everyone to show up. 

“NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie is also bent that Tamra didn’t call her the next day to say that she was sorry she couldn’t attend or to find out how the party turned out. But she accuses Tamra of texting Danielle and making fun of Lizzie’s dress…  Tamra turns to Danielle to ask if she told Lizzie that she made fun of her dress. Lizzie tells Tamra news flash – Danielle tells her everything Tamra says…lol.  Tamra is surprised she’s being accused of making fun of Lizzie’s dress. Lizzie said she texted, “What is she wearing?” to Danielle. Tamra said that she texted that to Lizzie and they went back and forth about it during the party. 

Lizzie thinks that all Tamra texted to her during the party was stuff like, “What are you doing?” and “I feel so left out…” “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie said, “Honey, I never responded to your text messages.” Tamra thinks otherwise so Tamra whips out her phone and instantly starts reading text message evidence that Lizzie isn’t correctly remembering that portion of the events of that night. Some texts are read that poke fun at the length of Lizzie’s dress and about what it is revealing or potentially could reveal. Tamra clearly texted and “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie clearly joked back. However, none of this is funny to Lizzie now.  

“NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie’s only comeback, “You know what honey, you didn’t come to my birthday… Who cares what was said or what happened… You didn’t come… You didn’t call…” Whine, whine, whine… Tamra is freaking out saying they had joked about the dress.  

With a shrug “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie says, “I’m over it.” However, Heather astutely disagrees and in a complete deadpan and totally comedic way says, “I don’t think you’re over it.” Tamra tells Heather to stop talking. Heather talks again only to order another round of cocktails. In her talking head, Heather tells us that when you’re really upset about something – And you say you’re over it but you’re not really over it – It’s gonna come back. So the key is either to talk it out or to truly get over it. 

After finishing their drinks, Vicki, Heather, Tamara leave to go to bed. “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie is going on and on about how that if she hurt someone’s feelings that she would say she’s sorry. “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie wants her feelings to be acknowledged.  We find out that “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie left her birthday party in tears. It was actually Lizzie’s party and she cried cuz she wanted to – You would cry too, if it happened to you.  

Okay, so in the party bus on the way home after “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie’s birthday – She has a complete and total meltdown. Danielle and her husband and Lizzie and her husband seem to be the only ones on the bus – so I’m guessing they’ve dropped off Vicki and Brooks (Ugh!) somewhere…  Whoa… “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie is really sobbing… And we see the previously unaired evidence that Danielle actually attended Lizzie’s birthday because she is the one who is comforting Lizzie on the party bus.  “NLM-EHM-IGESW” Lizzie is wailing that, “This was the worst birthday I’ve ever had… Next year I will be 35 and if my husband does not produce a good birthday – I will probably leave him.”  Christian says something they bleeped out as he leaves to go to the other end of the bus.  Lizzie inexplicably continues, “Christian why don’t you get a boner once a week…” and she then follows with a “F-you.” Wowowowowowowow… I did NOT see that coming.  I wonder if it’s possible to be de-crowned. Yikes!

Lizzie not tamra friendOkay, so the teams have been set… It’s obviously Heather, Vicki and Tamra vs. newbies Lizzie, Shannon and Danielle. One team is talking the hallway – The other team is still relaxing and finishing their drinks. 

Lizzie explains she thinks they are friends with someone who is full of bologna. Lizzie thinks that Tamra pulled the wool over her eyes.  She says that Tamra at first appears to be very sweet (really?) and fun (okay, I’ll give you that one) but then two seconds later says nasty stuff about you. She tells us that she thinks Tamra has a way of turning the whole story around on you – and that she finally sees what Shannon’s been saying all this time.   

Tamra, Heather, Vicki are talking about the situation in the hallway. Tamra talks about the texts. Heather confirms to Tamra that Tamra had, as a matter of fact, made fun of Lizzie’s dress. Tamra insists that Heather made fun of Lizzie’s dress, too – But Heather knows she didn’t and she tells Tamra to read the texts. This time, Tamra for some odd reason decides NOT to whip out her phone to see who was telling the truth.  Hmmmm…. Heather keeps telling Tamra to look at the texts… She even offers to look them up…lol. Tamra inexplicably gets pissed off at Heather for this. 

Shannon tells Lizzie that it probably wasn’t as much about the birthday itself but how it was handled. Umm….I disagree. Lizzie was CLEARLY not happy with her birthday. Threatening to leave your husband over it is kind of telling, no?  Lizzie warns Shannon that she should be careful about who she calls “friend” in this group. Lizzie said that Tamra has told everyone here what Shannon’s husband said in the in the notorious email. Shannon flips a fig… Shannon wonders when is this betrayal going to stop?  

Lizzie continues to tell Shannon what Tamra has said about Shannon behind her back.  Lizzie tells her stuff like she makes fun of Shannon… She says Shannon has green Martians around her head… That Shannon needs an exorcism… That Tamra does impressions of Shannon, etc. Whoa… Lizzie is so pissed off and she is not caring who knows about it…lol. 

v and t pajamaTamra is under the covers in bed and Vicki is in her pajamas when they again start talking about Lizzie. Tamra tells Vicki about a situation at the Valentines Party (that we didn’t see).  Simultaneously, Lizzie is telling the other team about the same exact situation. Rut roh… This is going to be trouble… 

Evidently, they played the game, “Marry, Shag or Kill.” It’s that game wherein you identify who you would marry, shag, or kill – But it’s not especially smart to play it using other couples around the table as the only options… Cuz of course, nothing good is going to come out of it. Someone’s feelings are really going to get hurt – Either for being picked or not being picked… In addition, your significant other could get pissed off by who you pick, etc. And why on EARTH would you play a game like that on Valentine’s Day??? That’s just crazy to me.  

Anyhoo… Evidently, when it came to Eddie’s turn, if you believe Tamra, he said that he would shag Lizzie.  If you believe Lizzie, Eddie said he’d want to marry Lizzie but shag Lizzie’s husband. Why do I find that not hard to believe at all? Lolololol…  Tamra said that Eddie said he would marry Heather and shag Lizzie.  I have no idea who is telling the truth at this point… Dang it – I wanna know who he is going to kill – Although, I wonder if he had the nerve to say he would kill Tamra? Lol…  

I guess later, as they were all waiting for their limos… Tamra said something that prompted Lizzie to say to Tamra that Tamra’s just jealous because Eddie wants to “shag” her (except you know, using that other “f” word)…  

shannon got snowed tShannon thinks she‘s been snowed by Tamra. They all agree that they should never trust Tamra… Shannon says, “Watch out! Watch out!” Shannon is going to have a little conversation with Tamra…lol.   

Next week… It looks like we’re treated to monkeys who love to throw their excrement at each other and I guess we’ll also see some hairy primates who not from Orange County, too. I also think next week is when the proverbial excrement hits the fan… I just hope it’s not literal…lol. 

Thanks for reading… See ya next week… Happy trails!

Kristen: Sonja Could Be Successful

I have to say it was cool to be there. I felt prepared and loved my look — outfit, hair, make up. I spent the night at the hotel the night before, so I was well rested. No kids waking me up in the middle of the night.

I guess you owe him a home cooked meal for that one.

Yes Josh treated me to new boobs.  I upgraded to silicone “gummy bears.” I had to replace my old ones. And that’s that. . . #TMI

Warranty expired and now it’s product replacement time.  They look better than the last ones. 

I was very annoyed when Avivia called me out on being a “Rookie” and implying that I didn’t know how things were done? It’s reality. There are no rules. She was so in the wrong for telling me to shut the f— up in front of the kids. There really isn’t much for her to say but that she “f—ed up.”

She’ll send George to feel you up and make derogatory remarks to get back at you.

How weird was that comment Aviva made about claiming that Carole had an open relationship?Where is she getting this word on the street???

I think that came from Sonja.  She did hint that Carole had extracurricular dates last season.

The whole Aviva asthma thing. She really, truly is the “Girl Who Cried Wolf.” Why can’t she just admit that she didn’t want to go on the trip for whatever reason? She always has an excuse. She didn’t join us on any getaways? The shame is that is when you really get to know someone when you travel. . .

Why would you want to get to know her any more than you already do?  You all should have dancing the jig when you heard she wasn’t going to Montana with you.  Who cares what her excuse is?

Sonja, lovely Miss Morgan. . .NO ONE understands her businesses not even her. She talked for four months about all these businesses, and when Andy asked her about them she was speechless. She started going on and on about real estate? That’s great. I am happy for her. But what about all of the other stuff? I was confused, all the other girls were confused, Andy was confused, and I know you at home were confused. That’s when I just had to a call her out!

It’s too bad her “talk” really didn’t result in products on the shelves with her name on them.  She missed a lot of opportunities.  With all of her problems, I’m sure she is overwhelmed and is having a mental break with reality.  This is reality.  When someone is facing too much stress, they can have a psychological meltdown. Some people can take a lot more stress than others but if it’s enough, you can breakdown and it can happen to anyone.   Calling someone out can push them over the edge. 

Diddy goes on her yacht? Where is Sonja’s yacht? Hmmmmm. What is your husband some sort of an expert? YES! He is! That’s why I had you sit down with him. I thought he could help give you some direction and help you get focused. I believe Sonja could be successful creating and selling products with her brand and her promoting it, but you have to have focus and understand who your customer is. Plus, you actually have to have a product in the market to sell — and she can’t name one single thing you can buy anywhere! Just saying. . .

This is where I have a problem.  Sonja agreed to the meeting so Josh can show off his marketing savvy. I don’t believe she deserved to be ridiculed by Josh.  If he wants to be a cast member of a Real Househusband show then he can dish it out as well as take it.  Actually a Real Househusband show would be something interesting and a show I would watch.  I liked Southern Charm with all those southern gents on it so why not?  Kristen is paid to be on a show where she ridicules other women but her husband should shut the f-ck up. 

Sonja implying Josh didn’t know what he was doing and that EBOOST isn’t anywhere? That’s when I couldn’t take anymore and had to shut it down. YOUR DELUSIONAL!!! Enough. . .

Congratulations! You just earned your housewife paycheck!

Aviva on Kristen’s “Gatemouth” Look

Before we get into the reunion (doesn’t everyone look gorgeous?), I need to touch on a few items mentioned in Carole’s last blog.

If Carole only KNEW how long I had been planning this leg throw. . .

Part A: First I had to get my leg chewed up by a machine. That part of the plan was very successful.

Part B: Then I had to throw it. . .

Part C: Then I had to endure Carole’s trying to get a leg up on me.

I did not premeditate the leg throw. As Heather stood above me and yelled at me calling me “phony,” “laughable,” etc. I thought, “Somebody has to put their foot down.” And ah ha! I just happened to have had one handy. . .

You handed everyone your medical history, x-rays and lab reports so confronting them about their doubts about your integrity was preplanned.  Sonja did her job by telling you that everyone was talking about you on the trip and you decided to defend yourself.  I think the leg toss was planned.

And it worked. Those bitches reacted like they’d seen a Real Housewife of Atlanta.

Hang on to your wigs and weaves!

BTW I loosen my leg often when I am sitting to promote bloodflow. I can get the gizmo on and off faster than Heather can flick her ghetto fabulous switch blade. Ready, Heather? DRAW!

That would be a funny West Side Story style street fight.  Ever seen the trailer for the 1979 movie The Warriors?  I wasn’t sure if they were going to dance or fight.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MV4cgs-bPic

We are back to the STFU moment. I went to a children’s art location expecting a playdate and fun — and instead I had Kristen droning on and on about how she didn’t want to hear about BookGate any longer. I said, “No problem. Done.” I think that what you missed of her incessant rant and me saying, “Let’s not talk about this here,” and she just wouldn’t stop talking about it. Call me crazy, but if you are asking someone to stop talking about something, shouldn’t you yourself stop talking about it??? Why did I say STFU? That was my way of expressing that I wanted her to STFU. I would say almost anything to get that Kristen “gatemouth” look. The one that looks like this.

Kristen so badly wanted to be part of BookGate.  She wanted in on the action.

Nonetheless: as I have said before, one of the activities was making soap, and I washed my mouth out with soap soon after. Luckily the children didn’t hear it.

Could you stick a bar of soap in your father’s mouth?

Carole and Russ: I don’t understand why Carole continues to lie at the reunion. It’s all in the show. Last season when Carole and I went shopping at the vintage store together she told me that she and Russ had an open relationship. Russ is a musician and Carole had accepted that he would be sleeping around with groupies. We spoke about it often and it honestly never seemed to bother her. That is why I nicknamed her “Cool Carole.” I wish Carole would start being honest about her men, her writing, etc.

I vaguely remember Carole and Russ in an open relationship.  The only clear thing I remember is Carole smoking pink cigarettes. 

Asthma? Still? Boringo. This was like a modern day Inquisition and it didn’t matter whether or not I was ill. Instead of basing judgements on medical facts, judgments about my health have been based on five post-menopausal bitches.

I doubt they care about your health.  They just doubt your honesty. 

The way Sonja was treated at the reunion was unconscionable. It was unacceptable and mean. Seeing some of these ladies act like shrews towards another person besides me is really painful to watch. Love you, Sonja!

The left side of the couch had their mouths and fingers wagging at the right side of the couch’s faces. 

Heather: Et tu Ramona Singer?

I mean can you believe “The Gordon’s Fishermam,” who was Carole’s blind date, and the “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter” man (Fabio), were both on RHONY? We have fake fishermen, fantasy romance novel hunks, fake engagements, a promise not promised, and the baptism of a new girl — who Aviva calls a rookie, nice. (What makes her an expert on reality personalities anyway?)

Kristen is a rookie.  Carole did write a humorous set of rules in her blog last season.  I’m sure everyone makes up their own rules but you don’t have to follow them.

There’s a lot I don’t understand, but one thing I can tell you is that Aviva Drescher has more double standards than prosthetics. And what’s shocking, she has no remorse at all. On the couch, as Kristen recaps the moment where Aviva so motherly drops the F-bomb, I notice one thing — Aviva isn’t even listening. She is sitting there thinking about what to say. It’s a game of chess to her. So here’s her next move: Kristen is a rookie, and if she was as seasoned as Aviva, she would know that, “We normally don’t have confrontations when children are in scene.” No. Checkmate there, Aviva. She fails to recognize she’s the one who was out-of-line. Where does she come up with this sh–?

As long as no one gets a phone call from their kids’ teacher telling them your kid dropped the f-bomb at school, then you won’t have to worry about being judged as bad parents.  Your kids are going to drop f-bombs when they get older anyway. 

Oh no, wait! Et tou Singer? Liquid on liquid? It was a “hard molded plastic glass.” How else do you say it? Among a slash and another double standard (grabbing someone’s arm or throwing a hard plastic object), we have a revelation — Ramona forgives. However, that doesn’t mean she should expect others to forgive as easily. . .

Oh but she expects that and a lot more and if she doesn’t get it she has a problem with you.

So then, onto blowies, threesomes, crying orgasms and long and short. . .gossip.

I’d rather watch a rerun of Sex and the City. 

Bottom line, I’m inspired by people who stand up for what they believe in. Sure, it’s devilish to have a laugh behind someone’s back, and we’ve all done it, but you stop at the nervous giggle. You don’t ignite the flame, and you don’t create the gossip. It’s just in poor style. On the one hand, we protect someone in the group — like Ramona reminding Sonja that she’s on national TV and has a daughter or supporting Aviva’s father George (to a point). But then there’s the morsel some find and can’t wait to chew on, and spit it back, regurgitated into a larger form. It’s that confrontation armed with the evidence. Gossip created, “the word on the street.” Proof in prescriptions. Proof in “Harry lies,” and a massive scandal. . .which it is not. It’s having a job and not wanting to do the work. Do you notice how we all get physically stressed when Aviva speaks? It sucks..

You mean Aviva stresses you all out when she makes up stories?  Well everyone knows Aviva lies anyway.

Meanwhile. . .Sonja is planning our next trip. Can I get a lifeboat? Where are we? In the land of charming? No, we are not. Parts of the reality we are in are comical, and parts of it are totally frustrating, and that is real.

I’m sure a trip Sonja plans will be better than the trip to Montana and the Berkshires.

Lady Sonja J Morgan, however, is certainly charming. And she’s funny and smart and a performer at heart. She’s beautiful. Creative and sensitive. Sonja’s totally free on the one hand and then wants to be private on the other. And while all of the before mentioned can be interesting qualities, when I am with Sonja, they are to the extreme. She puts on her “party personality,” trying to be the comedian, victim, and business woman all at once. The Nigerian Football Team has to be my favorite of all — but now she’s a lifestyle expert? No, she’s a house flipper. Will the real Sonja Morgan please stand up?

I think she had a break with reality (no pun intended).  Her whole speech did not make sense whether she was talking present or past tense.  Unfortunately no one did for her what Sonja did for Kelly on Scary Island which was to get people to stop and realize what’s going on with this person. 

By watching myself I’ve been able to uncover my co-dependent streak. We all have one and Sonja makes mine come alive. Sonja’s been sucked-in and although I don’t judge her, I do have an opinion and I think she should change the direction of her yacht.

Do you think P Diddy would mind?

LuAnn: Sonja Is Off the Rails!

I do find many redeeming things about Aviva — but George? Why would she ever think it was cool to bring her Dad around these LADIES? I would apologize all day long if George was my father. George can be super cool and amusing, but I’m afraid to say, that’s not what you got to see!

If there is one person that could be blamed for the crappy ratings, it’s that man. 

Ramona is just a plain liar! Unfortunately for her, we have previous episodes to show the “REALITY.” If I’m a DRAG QUEEN (admirable occupation), she’s Cameron Diaz. . .LOL. Don’t worry we catch her in a lot more crap as the reunion progresses.

You’ve been dying to stick it to Ramona for the past 6 seasons.

I was totally appalled by the meeting of Kristen and Aviva. Aviva said not to go there? And she DID? Talking like that in front of your kids? For me, the F-bomb is the worst example you can give to anyone — let alone your kids. I’ve always thought Aviva was more mature, but even I can be wrong sometimes. She is a great mother to her kids, I will give her that and. Reid is a lovely man. xoxox

The Countess has never thrown the f-bomb around?  Wtf?

You have to love Ramona and how she deflects things and makes it about her hair when she just flung a wine glass at someone’s face. She tried to defend herself by saying it was plastic, but REALLY? Who throws a glass at your face, whether it’s plastic or not? Who DOES THIS? Ramona. . .with her you never know what your going to get. That’s what keeps me on the roller coaster! LOL!

Don’t worry.  Ramona would never throw flying missiles at you because she’s too afraid of your Lu-man muscles.

I cannot stand the facialist, I’ll call her that because because she doesn’t deserve a name! Spreading rumors like this is CLASSLESS!

And funny as hell! 

On to lunch: Never in my life did I dream the Former USA would be in attendance at my ladies lunch for LookGoodFeelBetter.org, hosted by HollywoodLife.com and yours truly! And on top of it (no pun intended) — the the former Miss USA would have done George? I didn’t believe it for a second? Nana is amazingly beautiful, gives back to her local community, and is a very elegant lady. You can totally understand why she was made Miss USA! LOVELY! Shame on George an Aviva for spreading rumors about her.

She’s too lovely to have threesomes with anyone.

When Aviva came down suddenly with asthma there was no doubt in my mind it was real! She was not very well and was suffering. I could see that. I wasn’t that defensive about it because of her previous history of phobias, of which she has many. They all have disappeared and unfortunately for her, they came back in one massive case of ASTHMA. Bringing out evidence of X-rays and doctors notes didn’t help her cause. I don’t know what she was thinking?

She should have stuck with the phobias defense.  She is too afraid to spend a week with a bunch of judgmental women.

Sadly, for this moment in Sonja’s life, she is off the rails. I’m sure she will get back on them! I hope that will be soon. Sonja and I are old friends, and there’s nothing better than seeing your friends do well! She’s a good girl and she has a lovely daughter to raise, so I’m praying, meditating — you name it!

Love how you are so sympathetic. Not! 

Ramona on the Grueling Reunion

Hi! Hope you enjoy them more then I do filming them! LOL!

I don’t know if they are enjoyable but they do satisfy some morbid curiosity.

This was my sixth reunion for RHONY. We arrive art 6 pm and finish around 7 pm with an hour break for lunch. It is quite grueling. Everyone goes after everyone.

At least it’s not Thunderdome. 

I remember one year, Season 2, it was so emotionally grueling that I could not get out of bed the next day.

All I remember was Kelly vs Bethenny and everyone else was supporting cast. 

Sonja Is Very Private

Here we go. I’ll try to highlight what I can, but what a circus. The glass WAS plastic like that one at the Reunion. Ramona apologized over and over. It was a knee-jerk reaction to being provoked over and over. It’s not OK to throw things. 

George did intentionally grab her arm at a charity for women against violence. Ramona did not intentionally hurt Kristen. The way LuAnn talks about the cut inside Kristen’s lip you’d think she was a doctor instead of a LPN. Or at least an RN. She really hit the nail on the head. That area inside the lip really gushes. Kristen really milked it for all it was worth and definitely is not accepting the apology.

I’m glad I talked Ramona into forgiving Aviva at my tea party. It’s been so much more peaceful without Aviva wigging out on us. It was obvious to me she was suffering from all the ailments she claims to have. She told me the dust in Montana was the most dangerous. Ramona couldn’t jog it was so dusty. 

I do remember Carole saying she had an open relationship and that she and Russ see other people when shopping with Aviva. So I do think Aviva was right with her comment — but it doesn’t mean a girlfriend dates another girlfriends guy! I don’t go out with other girls’ guys. I get my own. I don’t remember if Russ flirting with me in St. Barths was that heavy. I don’t care. I’m sure Russ doesn’t either. I was just being dramatic. I don’t remember if the dingbat look on my face after the facialist said “word on the street” is I had a fling in LA with Russ was me playing, but I don’t know why Carole cares. It was just a joke. I said I wasn’t in LA or with Russ right way on the balcony. She knows I’m not that kind of girl. She also knows I didn’t take the young captain’s number in the Berkshires because I wanted to see HIM. I didn’t even want to leave the girls that night to see the son of Willie Nelson, Luca, who was staying with him and invited me through the captain. Hence the reason to get the captains number, and I was nudged to get the number. 

Carole also knows in London there was a man that liked me, and was calling our room persistently, I didn’t answer and I didn’t follow up with him either — though someone one else in our group fancied him and nudged me to answer. 

I’m actually very focused on my business affairs and taking care of my daughter all day long. You don’t see my business meetings or my board meetings, as they are private. I’m private outside of the show. However my interns love the show! So that works out well, doesn’t it? It suits their major and it suits me. It’s very gratifying to see others do well. I’m not a jealous person. I’m a healer. I have my certificate for healing energy work (No I’m not spread too thin). I am a manifesting generator. I don’t envy others. I wish well on others. When I made the comment about LuAnn having her settlement and shopping, spending time with her friends, and having Jacques all the time that was in direct response to her saying I don’t spend time with her. It meant that I don’t have time to do those things because I don’t have a settlement and because I have my nose to the grindstone. So it does hurt me when I see others doubt my support. LuAnn says I wasn’t there until she came back on the show. As soon as the show starts, we all speak again and LuAnn came over before the season started and bullied me, so that’s another reason I didn’t call her then, which I also made clear to her. 

I understand Ramona saying she doesn’t want to be around George. Aviva can’t change her dad. When we heard George was with Cody we were hoping he would turn a new leaf. I love LOVE and just want them both happy.

Harry has asthma and he used to whip his thing out during sex — the inhaler thing. Asthma had me stretching my neck and Ramona covering her ears. Simultaneously. How funny are we together? I was leaning in and inching closer and closer until I was actually on her train and she had to complain about it to Andy. We banter back and forth like sisters. 

Who could insult Edie Beale? Grey Gardens is legendary. Lu IS all over the place — with mean insults to a pal who is in the process of paying a business lawsuit judgement, after giving hundreds of artists (like her) jobs in the movie industry. Wasn’t she a singer? A writer? I’m a movie producer, performer, special event company, writer, and artist as well. Thanks for the support. 

I texted Heather to say I was going to France that I had to get financing on my home there or sell it and that’s why I would not be able to make her Anniversary party. She texted me back and said, “Cool give me a call when you get back,” but then on the show says I’m a bad friend for not coming to her party? I sold my house in France. I’m working towards paying a 7 million dollar judgement and keeping act together. Then they say I’m scattered and not focused? I’d say I’m focused. Doing what I need to do.

I don’t blame you for wanting to get away from Aviva.

What movie?  I have a feeling Sonja makes money under the table by using her connections to help people get things they want.  For instance she introduces a real estate agent to a developer that gives them a listing and once they sell that listing, Sonja gets a cut for the referral.  Problem is, it’s not consistent money and you never know if you’ll get reimbursed.

I texted Heather to say I was going to France that I had to get financing on my home there or sell it and that’s why I would not be able to make her Anniversary party.

I’m amazed you still live in your home considering this judgment has been hanging over your head for a while.  I’m sure it won’t continue for much longer.

I do meet with many of the business opportunities that come my way, but like I say I’m not going to put my name on just any product unless I feel confident it’s going to be a home run and not a distraction to the matters at hand. The first movie I produced starred an Oscar winner and received two awards. All the properties I invested in are award-winning properties as well — one garnered the highest price paid in Westport one year, and when I was managing my ex-husband’s yacht it was voted “Most Chartable Yacht” by Yacht Magazine.

The opportunities to make money are dwindling.  You are not guaranteed a spot on next reunion’s couch.

I also think the viewer knows very well what a lifestyle expert is if they have been watching me Sharpie my bags, use a bottle brush to clean the toilet, glue my hangers with crazy glue, cook in a toaster oven, make flower arrangements from the corner deli, and pick up an orchid at Home Depot and put it in a French cache pot. It’s someone that knows how to work with what they have and to do with less when necessary but still live a life of luxury — when you don’t have all the money in the world and even when you don’t.

Tips like sticking your face into a bidet can be passed over, please.

    Snarkilicious Starzy! I watched the OC this morning. smh. I really can’t tell what is real, and what is fake, but I’m loving that Tamra is experiencing what a *itch Karma is.

    • ladebra says:

      Ops, premature post! lol. Thank you for recapping the NY blogs Ramonacoaster. I’m looking forward to part deux tonight.

      • Powell says:

        Andy asking about Mario and Lu saying now Ramona knows how it feels for your husband to cheat on you will be good.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Except I think Lu also cheated on the count. And Lu likes to me mean to be mean. Ramona only goes after her after Lu attacks her first. Snake snake snake 😏🐍🐍🐍

          Lu has a mean spirit and Ramona despite crazies is not mean to BE mean.
          Karma gets at Lu. Her kids will hate her as they get older. Nonexistent mom.

  2. ladebra says:

    Jeff I really miss you around here. I hope you are on the mend and will be back soon.

    TRex, you are stronger than any person I know. Hope you get through this next two weeks, I’m sending love and light your way.

    • Powell says:

      Yes I miss MTH and hope he’s recovering.

      T-Rex is incredibly strong. You keep pushing.

      • Agreed – we miss MTH and I nominate T-Rex for president! Also, big shout out to our Jan (Texas Tart) for keeping things running! I gave up on OC a long time ago but I skimmed blog to see if it was appropriately snarky and yes, it was! I am now indifferent to NY, but appreciated the blogs from Ramonacoaster!

        And since I am catching up Boston – glad the dinner party was a success and sorry about your aunt. I can relate when my mom died my harpy of an aunt took my grandmother to the lawyer the next week to have the will changed so I would no longer be able to inherit anything that would have gone to my mom. Money just makes some people lose their soul and go ape-shit.

        Happy Tuesday – just found out they have to take down a wall in the bedroom since it is bowed so I won’t be able to move back to the master bedroom this weekend 😦 but at least it will be fixed right so I am trying to stay zen and accept that it is only a small delay…Day 12 of reno project and counting…

  3. T-Rex says:

    Oh good grief. I know I seem to be harping on one DrunkenSlutDELUSIONALGreyGardensSonja but I can’t get past the lies! The ONLY property she owns as of today, is her home in Manhattan, it’s in YOUR OWN DOCUMENTS, if there was any real estate that was bought and sold it was when she was married to Mr. Morgan, again almost 10 years ago. Mr. Morgan owns/owned several properties she speaks of, she makes zero rental dollars off of them, they may be rented to “friends” but those would be Mr. Morgan’s friends, she has ZERO ownership in any of them. There is NO yacht in her surroundings and again, she hasn’t “managed” the yacht since 2005, almost 10 years ago, it wasn’t yesterday honey. She was FORCED by the courts to sell the property in France, she had tried to get Mr. Morgan to purchase it so the courts wouldn’t sell it, he refused. I have seen the documents they are a matter of public record.

    • Powell says:

      T-Rex she just doesn’t want to move to 2014. She’s so stuck in the past that it’s scary.

    • EllaMinnoPea says:

      I’m pretty sure she still thinks she’s the 25 year old party girl and is just trying to tread water until she can find a new sugar daddy. I almost think that in her mind, she does own those properties, including a yacht.

    • kit9 says:

      Harp on! Sonja’s lying must be called out! She too often gets a pass because she’s a ditz, she’s pathetic, etc. And, I’d probably muster some sympathy but she is so disgustingly haughty! And, the woman lies BIG, not small. I love when she said she didn’t have to have a product to be a business woman. Yes, Sonja, but you do have to have a business to be a business woman!

  4. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Thks so much for the prayers and thoughts. I really appreciate it. You don’t know how much. I had a horrible night last night. I couldn’t go to work. I had to stay w/my mom. My cousin’s daughter which is my aunt’s granddaughter stayed w/her last night and the report from the nurse is that my aunt is a little better. My other aunt said that my aunt is aware of who’s w/her. I hope and pray that continues.

  5. T-Rex says:

    Oh good Grief, I would not ride in a car, airplane or elephant with IckyVicky and her screeching. I cannot stand screeching in my ear from anyone, and I can’t for the life of me wonder why someone hasn’t told her to “zip it”. I haven’t been to Bali, but I have ridden an elephant, actually I have ridden about five of them! I live by Busch Gardens and a Zoo, and gotten to ride elephants there, I don’t think Busch Gardens does elephant rides any longer though, but the Zoo still does. It was fun, and I highly recommend just so you can say you rode an elephant. In addition, how is IckyVicky 52 year old and never had a “mousse” in her life? Throughout the years we have seen her poo-poo food in very nice and classy establishments, and not exotic food, just well prepared, high end menus, her diet must consist of Pizza Hut and McDonalds, or any other run of the mill chain restaurant. Regarding TrailerTrashTrampySue, FINALLY the Ho-Wives have the cluephone to compare notes and guess what, she talks about and trashes all of you, yep,(uhm haven’t any of you ever watched this show?). Going to really enjoy reading the blogs on THIS reunion this year, she better put her big girl panties on, and buckle up buttercup, because if they thought the elephant ride was bumpy she has got another thing coming.

    • Powell says:

      For Vicki to have traveled so much in her biz I’ve never understood how she’s so uneducated about some things. Why can’t she dress for her body? That green dress she had on was cute but it was too short and too tight. You could see her belly button in that dress.
      At the reunion Tamra will tell and lie again to try to cover the lies of the season. That’s what she knows how to do.

      • jezzibel says:

        Having just watched the first season of OCHW recently, its very interesting the Vicki has regressed backwards from her first season. The first season, she was soft spoken, business minded(not much of a change), but when she and Don went out to eat, she wasn’t that appallingly ignorant about food(wouldn’t say she was adventurous, but definitely not like she is now). On a sidenote, I like very basic food, I love a nice grilled cheese sandwich(real butter + frying pan, cannot go wrong), I would try prawn mousse if it was offered(and I wasn’t paying for it) just to say I tried it, my mother taught me to try new interesting foods twice, just to make sure about what I liked and did not like.

        • T-Rex says:

          Look I wouldn’t eat a prawn mousse either, even when I wasn’t a vegetarian, that sounds unappealing to me, however I at least know what it is. I love a basic grilled cheese as well, nothing fancy, like you, my parents were adventurous eaters and always said at least try something once before you throw your nose up at it. One of my relatives married an Asian lady, they owned a restaurant, very high end, they even had a sushi chef flown in for the wedding. Now, our family, not Asian, the older, set in their ways crowd got some beef and potatoes, and I think they were nice to make this for the gringos, this was back in the late 70′. BUT my parents wanted no part of that boring stuff, and we all tried the sushi. First time we had ever had it, and the Octopus was amazing, as were a lot of the foods, some we didn’t like at all, and some again were amazing . This was way before Sushi places were all over, so it was very exciting for us to be able to try all that new food.

          • jezzibel says:

            I ate street vendor food in Hiroshima(was extremely drunk at the time) so prawn mousse is not that big a deal to me, I’d try it just to say I had. With food if I like something I very rarely deviate from what I like, but it doesn’t mean I won’t try anything new( I cannot abide pate, tried it three times just to make sure I hated it..yup still hate it). But Vicki’s reaction to foreign/different food is just insulting.

            • T-Rex says:

              I remember they were in Napa or some place as couples for a wine tasting, I think first season of TrailerTrashtrampySue and they insulted the chef, almost to his face regarding their food. The food looked amazing and I am sure it had an amazing flavor, it was I believe a Prix Fixe menu, which none of them understood as a fixed menu to compliment the wines they were drinking. When I wasn’t a vegetarian I couldn’t stand Pate either, my family loved the stuff, but even the thought now turns my stomach. I also couldn’t stand regular ole beef stew, which I called “stringy meat”. I could not eat any meat boiled like that, no matter who tried to make it, even a really good cook, I couldn’t even stand the smell, however I could eat chicken stew, so again go figure.

    • EllaMinnoPea says:

      I don’t know why, but I’m constantly amazed at Vicky’s lack of worldliness. By all accounts she runs a very successful business. I would think that in “Coto” she’d need some level of sophistication to wine and dine clients.

      But she’s even completely uneducated about the US. Her trip to Oklahoma? And really, truly, who does not understand what mousse is in relation to food? Even if she doesn’t want to eat it (which, yeah, didn’t sound all that appealing to me – it’s about the texture) but at least I knew what it was.

      Finally, didn’t any of those women’s mothers teach them manners (with the exception of Her Heatherness, who is all manners and grace)? When someone serves you some food you don’t recognize, do you let them put it on your plate and quietly peruse it, leaving it alone if you decide against it? Or do you start screeching questions at the poor person unfortunate enough to serve it to you?

  6. Powell says:

    I watched most of OC last night. I hope the gossip that Tamra will not be back next season is true because she’s the cause of all the fights. I understand what Lizzie was saying she was disappointed w/the no show of Tamra at her party but after Lizzie made her point she went on and on. Did she say “oh yeah I texted you” after Tamra read the text? I just remember her saying “whether there was texting or not ….”, or whatever she said. But Tamra lies so much that maybe Lizzie really couldn’t remember st first that she did respond to the texts.
    Shannon has exaggerated events somewhat but Tamra just downright lies and says “I don’t lie”. And in two TH says “No I didn’t say it.” “If I did I don’t remember.” “I shouldn’t drink cuz I can’t remember things. I’m a bad drinker.” Lies roll off of Tamra’s tongue. Tamra tells Vicki Lizzie said she wanted to Eff Eddie during the game. Tamra always tries to get someone on her side by lying.

  7. chismosa™ says:

    Hi all- quick question – is that picture of the woman with her hands raised up – is that Lizzie ?? With no makeup ??? Or another woman?
    😳
    Because if that’s her- she needs to do that look more often so as to not look so “drag queen”. She’s so pretty !

  8. designernailsdiana says:

    As I picked this at the Real Ho-wives show I’d commit to only watching if forced to I’ll comment.
    TTTS best be done this season because she has run the fun out of this franchise. I miss the low key Vicki who let loose, but not in an obnoxiously loud screech. Heather is just Heather and she is the friend who always tries to save you from your foolish self by saying “No don’t lift your shirt up”, “You are not going with him in that truck he’s drunk and so are you”. You know the one I’m talking about.
    I think Lizzie just wanted to whine about being rejected on her birthday except by Vicki and Brokes er Brooks (who no one really wants to film with).
    RHNYC will be the “Take down of Ramona” with regard to Mario and how she goaded LuAnn in the past. Karma IS a B*tch and loves to kick the soapbox out from under you when you least expect it.
    I hope Adiva doesn’t get to speak, cause she’s like a broken record. GreyGardensSonja is so delusional it’s scary. Like Kelly on Scary Island crazy.
    I’m holding everyone up in prayers as you battle thru all the icky stuff happening to you and your family members.
    It seems health issues are the theme for us all lately.

  9. kit9 says:

    Hey, more HW related tv drama, this time courtesy of the HBO! HBO’s NFL preseason reality staple, Hard Knocks debuts tonight and this year it’s featuring the Falcons and none other than Mr. Kim. I just saw a preview of the first epi and poor Kroy is rusty! He jumps offsides 3 times in a row then gets into a fight with a teammate Clay Matthews cousin Jake that had to be broken up by teammates! Tune in tonight…

  10. chismosa™ says:

    Just re: sonja- ^^^You’re right TRex and despite her total disregard for reality right now and moving on – I get her. I’m too nostalgic and only look back in my own life – so I am wistful whereas someone with brains would MOVE the eff ON.

    I think when she says certain things about “this yacht” or whatever – she’s saying it to mean “look kristen and big ears – I don’t need your help with getting to celebs because I’ve been with them” — she’s not referring to Ears and kristen (and Heather last year) helping her out “business” (use the term loosely with Sonja) – wise” because I think Sonja knew
    A/ it was a nice storyline for her b/ it would help her connect with viewers that she’s having troubles moving on from her divorce c/she was trying to help out newbie Holla last year by ‘working’ ((cough cough letting Heather showcase her business acumen cough, cough; ie helping
    Heather more than vice versa )) -with her and newbie kristen this year by meeting with Ears – who I agree with RamonaCoaster was really just laughing and disparaging her instead of offering concrete ideas. Jmho.
    Of course, there’s editing – so Josh👂 very well may have given ideas.

    I’ve said it before I used to read DAILY and be on them more often than this blog the ny society gossip blogs. Sonja W-A-S a true ny socialite.
    Many many many ny socials have seedy pasts and it gets out. But then onto next story. Sonja’s just on a tv show!

    I also think if Sonja TRULY wanted to do business stuff – TRULY- she’d use her TRUE real friend Ramona. Jmo

    I think Sonja liked to help the “newbies” out on their new seasons. Jmo. Know it’s not popular and know she is living at 3 West End Road & Lily Pond Ln. to many 😦
    😞
    Hope she moves on in her own way. I know I never can ! So I get it.
    Divorce would be death for me. Utter death.

      I don’t really agree, but that’s why I love this place. DrunkenSlutDELUSIONALGreyGardensSonja was WAY different her first Season on the show, and I enjoyed her, the quirky behaviour, the free spirit etc. HOWEVER she has morphed into this SUPER EGO of lies upon lies upon Lies, it’s gotten worse by the season, she keeps adding to this delusion-fantasyland she is living in. First off, she is divorced for many years, and separated for almost 10 years. She got an AMAZING settlement, way beyond her pre-nup, these SHE acknowledged in depositions. She probably met P Diddy once on a party on her yacht this doesn’t make you friends. Heather worked for him for years as did Kristen’s husband so they DID know him way more than DrunkenSlutDELUSIONALGreyGardensSonja. She speaks of owning things she has NEVER owned, Mr. Morgan owned them, she did not. I also disagree that SHE was giving the newbies a storyline, I think BRAVO was trying to give her a storyline to make her seem not so delusional and EdieBeale-GreyGardens. Heather T’s job was marketing, that has been her career even before she had her own business, so was Josh Taekman’s job, he was the DIRECTOR of marketing. I think that DrunkenSlutDELUSIONALGreyGardensSonja is lazy and doesn’t want to really work to do anything. She wants some get rich quick scheme, which she tried already trying to work as a producer, I have seen the lawsuit, she absolutely committed fraud and this is why the judge ruled very quickly and decidedly against her, he showed in the ruling that she in his mind committed Fraud. I personally don’t think that she was a TRUE socialite, she was never admitted to many society groups when she married Mr. Morgan because of her scandalous past working as a Hostess(cough cough, high end mattress pad to married men at Pietro as the stories and divorce lawsuit intimated), in fact they were excluded from some of the higher circles because of her past and her antics. Again regarding the marketing I think that was Bravo’s doing to try and get that idiot to pick a brand, any brand and try to make something of it. JMO though.

        I hear ya barkin big dog. I do. :/
        I still don’t get why ears left a cushy job. Probably didn’t even tell his wife before selling his CA house and leasing in NY.

        The only point I truly disagree is the society thing. There are so many shameful society women who married into big families and the exposés that came out making fun of them -(this goes back 10 years to the social rank site and others such) – I don’t find Sonja any any less than the stories I read. Those would make you blush!

        But I see your point. It’s cool to disagree.
        God gives us –supposedly– all we could handle. And id collapse if I was Sonja. But not everyone because people are far more resilient than I 🙂 💃

        • T-Rex says:

          Chisy though, here is the difference, Mr, Morgan was a many time married paycheck and a man many years older than her, she isn’t stupid she knew what she was getting into. You probably married, as did I, someone we truly loved and adored. I didn’t look at my husband as a paycheck or an entree into society, mine was a blue collar guy and I was just happy to find a dude that had a job longer than a few years, I thought whoa a dude with job security. I could not even IMAGINE my life without my husband, he is my rock, but is no Rockefeller.

          • WasLurking says:

            I think it very unfair to say/assume she married him just for his money. It’s been made pretty clear in previous seasons that she really loved the man. I think he’s an a*shole but the heart wants what the heart wants………..

      • Rebecca can't understand why people don't appreciate the importance of dragons. says:

        ” For instance she introduces a real estate agent to a developer that gives them a listing and once they sell that listing, Sonja gets a cut for the referral. ”

        Unless Sonja has a real estate license, this is illegal. Is she bragging about this on tv?

        • T-Rex says:

          She does NOT have a listed Real Estate License in the state of New York at least for the past five years, I couldn’t go back further than that

        • Ione says:

          Sonja has never bragged of introducing a real estate agent to a developer that gives them a listing which is sold resulting in a cut for the referral. I’ve never heard her say that. Someone else made an assumption that was possibly the case.

          • T-Rex says:

            She actually did, she started off that she bought and sold real estate, which she really didn’t, then she had to back off that statement, and further said that she put agents together with buyers, again, something she didn’t do either. I believe She said this in the first Reunion segment. Again she is DELUSIONAL and is now just making stuff up, and I can’t figure out why, it’s a matter of public records and anyone can look up this information, just cause you SAY it doesn’t make it true.

  11. chismosa™ says:

    From Aviva ^^^ what is a gatemouth?

    I would say almost anything to get that Kristen “gatemouth” look. The one that looks like this.

    What is a gate mouth???

  12. chismosa™ says:

    Hi sorry just a couple things about NY ^^^ I couldn’t understand:
    Before new blog starts –

    LOL @ aviva “I can get the gizmo on and off faster than Heather can flick her ghetto fabulous switch blade” 

    I know Aviva’s just trying to outwit Carole and Heather with her writing to prove she can write as well as Carole and it’s annoying and obvious but that was LOL
    Heather is not from the ghetto and should stop with that crap. So annoying. 

    —-Who is Heather “co-dependent” on- I don’t get it? Her husband?
    You mean she ACKNOWLEDGED she has faults ?????!!! 😲

    —–Season 2 reunion was the worst for Ramona? What about scary island season? Or the recent one with left couch attacks? With vajazzle on?

  13. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Real friends

    • VV™ says:

      Those two hit it off since they met.

      • Jan (TexasTart) says:

        Yes, I still remember when they went to a bar together last season, it really felt like if I went out with a friend..and that’s when I knew they were the real deal.

  14. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    • T-Rex says:

      Yeah OldCraggyBitchDrunkenRamona has called out more than the snake CountlessLuMan on relationship issues, so Karma is a Biotch. LotharioMario has allegedly been cheating for years, it’s just that this mistress is a psycho and doesn’t get the rules of not making this crap public. Sad that she thinks that she doesn’t deserve better than this lyin cheatin guy

      • WasLurking says:

        I think is was completely out of bounds for Andy to bring up Ramona’s issues with the press and Mario……completely. IF the subject had come up on the show….ok, fair game but it didn’t. She made herself very clear……. her marriage is back on track and she would not discuss it any further because of Avery. As for Lu and her situations with men. Not even close…… Ramona wasn’t hooking up with pirates, ever. There is no comparison and she needs to STFU!

        • chismosa™ says:

          AGREED.

          Andy wouldn’t have this dumb a$$ franchise in NY if not for Ramona.
          I wish karma came for him.

          Luann a snake is a snake is a snake and Luann is a snake 🐍

        • kit9 says:

          Ramona had it coming, imo, in spades. Ramona has attacked Luann’s marriage year after year at the reunion over issues that were never on the show. She’s not only brought it up but she’s really relished doing so. And, Luann’s had two kids which Ramona couldn’t give a crap about. She was always so smug and, well, ‘m no Luann fan but karma’s a bi*ch, pretty much sums it up.

  15. VV™ says:

    The Manifesto is Up!!! The Manifesto is Up!!!

    **Not really. Just wanted to say that.

  16. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Wanted to tell y’all that Jersey Belle is a winner! ⭐ It comes on Monday after OC. She is an outspoken NJ transplant to a upscale Alabama community and hilarious, the people were rich of character.

  17. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Ugh, I can’t deal with this talking all at the same time. 😯

  18. Austin says:

    Oh, good grief, LuMan. You very likely did cheat on your husband. Ramona was not the cheater, unlike you.

  19. Ok, I signed back on just to post that Luann may be my favorite housewife after that “karma is a bitch line”. While I used to enjoy Ramona occasionally I have come to hate her elitist, double standard ways. If she had exhibited a little honesty and humility … But she didn’t.

    • kit9 says:

      So agree. Appealing on the basis of Avery was the height of hypocrisy.

      • WasLurking says:

        What did you expect her to say or talk about? She made it clear she was NOT going there. Period! Avery was just a part of it. Was no one’s damn business as none of it was on the show.
        Do you really think she should have discussed something so personal just because you don’t like her?
        Like her, don’t like her makes no matter to me…….. but Andy should have never brought it up!

        • mrs peabody says:

          I agree, it should not have been brought up, it was not a story line on the show and some things are private and they all should respect that. If a person says I’m not talking about it then drop it.

          • In normal life I agree 100%, but these twits signed up for a reality show so I think the rules are out the window. She can’t pick what is on and off topic especially when she obviously has a history of feeling entitled to say what ever she wants to. By the way it has been years since I have used the word “twits”, I think I am going to make that my word of the day!

        • kit9 says:

          Who cares what I expect her to say, I’m commenting on what she did say. She’s a raging hypocrite. To your points, as I already said, she brought up stuff that was never on the show. She drug up the most personal things about Lu’s marriage despite the fact she had two kids. But Ramona didn’t give a rat’s about that did she? And, don’t go making assumptions. I like a lot about Ramona and said I’m no fan of Luann’s but Ramona is wrong here, is a massive hypocrite and had this coming big time and I was glad to see Luann nail her for it.

          • Exit4 says:

            Don’t forget when Luann’s daughter wrote a bad tweet-I think it had racist overtones-wrong obviously, but kids are dumb sometimes. Ramona “accidentally” retweeted it for all to see. Deleted it and told a whole tale about “not understanding twitter”. It was obviously deliberate. And the absent mother comments and other things she’s brought up about Luann’s kids (I think there was an incident in the hamptons with alcohol). Ramona isn’t concerned about Luann’s kids and how they feel. And none of what Lu’s kids did was on the show-but Ramona brought it up. She’s always been a hypocrite!

        • T-Rex says:

          Well she has brought the issue up at almost every Reunion regarding Countless-Lu-Man, and she signed up for a Reality show and is paid big bucks to show her life. In addition, Avery is a ADULT child, not some kid, whereas Countless-Lu-Man had “minor” children when OldCraggyBitchDrunkRamona brought this up at previous reunions. Look I don’t like Countless-Lu-Man she is a snake, but I don’t see the issue of Mz Andy bringing the cheating up, it’s been all over the news, and all over the papers in New York, LetharioMario’s mistress cannot keep her mouth shut.

          • designernailsdiana says:

            Stepford wife smile is the perfect phrase for that fake, plastic smile Ramona had plastered on her face. Karma IS a B*tch and it just gave a huge dose to Ramona for years of condescending attitude towards others on the show.

    • kit9 says:

      And, that creepy Stepford smile she had on her face during the segment? Eek

      • That smile was a little alarming.

        • Anne says:

          I agree with Kit9. First, Ramona is a raging hypocrite. She has always acted as if her marriage and family were perfect and had no problem bringing up issues with other people’s relationships that occurred outside of the show or filming. I am not and have never been a fan of the Countess (too pretentious entirely), but I loved her “karma is a bitch” comment. Second, Ramona called out Heather repeatedly last season for “smiling.” So, to watch Ramona treating us to the her “Stepford wife smile” *(Thanks Kit — i’m stealing your line) throughout the reunion was just another example of her hypocrisy.

          I’m also not a Kristin fan and I don’t care much for her husband. However, I admired the fact that she admitted that she and her husband work on their marriage and that her husband is working on the issues that we saw during the season. At least she was honest.

  20. lillybee says:

    Did Aviva really say something about Truman Capote writing To Kill a Mockingbird?

    • mrs peabody says:

      I think I saw her say something in the first look. I haven’t started watching tonight’s show yet.

      • chismosa™ says:

        I saw that there too.

        They were BFFS – Harper lee and TC so who knows.

        • That ship sailed a long time ago and both Harper Lee and TC addressed it “so who knows” just doesn’t cut it. The only book I have read more than Pride and Prejudice is To Kill a Mockingbird, it is a treasure and to have it even mentioned in the same breath as RHONY is an incredible insult. In today’s “reality” society shame on us for allowing these nitwits a stage that can disparage something of substance and quality.

          • chismosa™ says:

            Whoa sorry SJP! I was an English Lit major, AP: regents and all, would love to go back for a MA in it- ain’t gonna find a bigger lover of books —

            I just meant it in a passing way- sorry I did not mean it seriously and don’t feel the HWs, even writer girl Carole, are valid enough to speak of those writers either.

            Didn’t mean to ruffle feathers.

    • WasLurking says:

      I thought is was just me…….lol

    • Harper Lee is still living and I think she should sue Leg for slander, but yes Leg said that. What a moron!

  21. Orson says:

    Standing ovations to both Ramonacoaster and Starzy!

    If josh had seen the show before, he’d have seen how graciously Sonja accepted and followed Heather’s marketing advice. Oh, Sonja? Josh’s Eboost is on store shelves right next to your toaster ovens.

  22. JumpTheShark says:

    Andy thinks he’s Dr. Phil.

    • mrs peabody says:

      Andy thinks he’s a lot of things, it’s too bad all these things are in his mind only.

  23. mrs peabody says:

    Why is it ok to tell Ramona not to say anything and then it’s ok to put your own 2 cents in in the next segment

  24. lillybee says:

    Aviva kept on butting into conversations that had absolutely nothing to do with her,

    • kit9 says:

      Yeah, at one point Carole was speaking and Aviva jumped in and derailed her and the convo by going ape chit over the word weird. There were so many good points to nail Aviva on and Carole didn’t. Hopefully, she’ll get some in during Part 3.

      • boston02127 says:

        There’s a part 3?

      • Anne says:

        That bothered me too, Kit. Then I read Carole’s blog, the interview with BuzzFeed (which slams Aviva pretty hard) and Brian Moylan’s piece on vulture.com (which does the same). I think that Aviva underestimated Carole’s contacts in the world of journalism when she started down this road with the ghost writer story and I suspect that there will be other forums for Carole to make her case without interruption.

        Oh, and no — not at work today….. waiting for furniture delivery.. so I am catching up on all the gossip.

    • Powell says:

      She wasn’t even there 3/4 of the season so she should have just been sitting there.

  25. boston02127 says:

    Why was Andy surprised that Carole was an outdoorsy type of person? If he read her book he would of known that.

  26. boston02127 says:

    A very long time ago everyone on this blog was talking about Gray Gardens. I was curious and read about the two women. Then I downloaded the movie with Drew Barrymore playing Lil Edie on my Kindle.

    When Sonja talks about Gray Gardens like it was a wonderful life for the mother and daughter and LuAnn corrects her and says “they were mentally ill”. You can’t help but laugh.

    • ladebra says:

      There was a candid segment, when everyone was up milling around between filming – Andy was very busy either reading email or answering emails on his phone – and Sonja was going on and on about being mentioned on SNL “on Mango” … I thought she looked pathetic, and delusional. Sad to say. She is just trying very hard to be relevant. Sad.

    • T-Rex says:

      I thought that movie was done so well, and if you want to really see something, there is an actual documentary of these two ladies that was done in the 70’s I believe, maybe the early 80’s and you can actually see the two Edie’s themselves and realize how mentally ill they were. I can’t believe that anyone would want to be compared to them.

    • Powell says:

      I know right? Sonja is looking at the Society life and them being Jackie’s cousins. Sonja isn’t looking at how they really were, ill. That’s how she looks at her life. The High Society, glamorous yesteryear of her life. Not how it truly is.

      • T-Rex says:

        They both also lived in the PAST days of their “glory” when they had money, even in that flea ridden, dilapidated house, that was overrun with cats, vermin and filth, they still thought they had money and yachts, riches and were still a part of the high society, etc. Sound familiar?

    • chismosa™ says:

      Boston I loved it too – I love Drew Barrymore. And I think it won Emmys all around.

  27. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Good Morning!

    I was planning to make a blog with highlights of the reunion last night and I couldn’t bring myself to stay with watching it after the day I had at work, I needed some peace!

    If anyone is interested to put together some highlights I would make a new blog post with them. Doesn’t have to be a recap, just the most interesting or outrageous. Of course, you all can just continue to chat here about NY….just thought I’d ask!

  28. ladebra says:

    If you are in HI stay safe!

  29. ladebra says:

    This is for Veena! Your next cruise looks amazing!

  30. ladebra says:

    I really like what Heather is wearing. Come to think of it, I really like Heather.

    • Powell says:

      I didn’t look closely but they all had on nice dresses and look pretty nice. Carole just messed up her hair. Heather being her good gf should have told her it’s too light. I would have.

  31. ladebra says:

    • I skip most of the blogs because I don’t want to lose any more brain cells, but I have to admit that I usually enjoy Carol’s blogs. I haven’t read her books, but her blogs have a quirky intelligence that I enjoy even if I am kind of indifferent to her.

      • Anne says:

        SJP — If you like Carole’s blog, you should read What Remains. It is beautifully written, although it is hard to read in parts. I’m also from upstate NY (further upstate) and a couple years older, so the parts about her childhood and growing up were very relatable for me.
        If you’ve ever lost a close friend/family member to either a chronic illness or an accident, you will be able to relate to the book. The chapters dealing with illness, dying and death are heartbreaking and yet relatable at the same time.

        I have not read Widow’s Guide, although it is on my TBR list. Too many books, so little time.

  32. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. I hope everyone is doing well.
    I can’t believe I watched all of the reunion last night. I was tweeting away. I thought Andy trying to get Ramona to comment on Mario was funny, good, weird. All I know is from now on Ramona needs to keep her trap shut about everyone else husband/marriage.
    Have a great day.

  33. Prince Ali says:

    I’m so glad LuMan called out Ramona. If Ramona wouldn’t talk about everyone else’s marital problems I would approve of her right to keep this private, but she has brought to the forefront so many of the other woman’s issues that were not part of their story lines, specifically really underhanded things about their marital relationships or their kids.

  34. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    The blog has been updated with a birthday. Please take time to wish Ramonacoaster a good one, she’s done a lot of blogging for Lynn’s Place!

    Happy Birthday Ramonacoaster! 😀

    • designernailsdiana says:

      Thank You for the link. I love Carole more now. So Adiva’s hubby said he would get her go to Montana if she got a contract for another season? How did that work out for you Adiva?

      • catmom1 says:

        I didn’t like him last season when he referred to Sonja and Ramona as being fat. I like him even less after reading about his attempted Montana deal. I think he and Aviva deserve each other.

        • Powell says:

          Yeah catmom. I think Reid had a feeling that Aviva’s place for next season was in jeopardy so he tried what he could even though it was underhanded.

          • T-Rex says:

            I think Bravo told them both that they weren’t going to be paid for the full season if she didn’t show up, hence the apple-less edits, and said that they were going to “remember” the fact she wasn’t showing up to any outings, and they countered with the stupid doctor’s note and a bargain for another season. Uhm Bravo doesn’t like ultimatums, ask the myriad of “fired” Ho-wives how that’s workin out for them

        • chismosa™ says:

          You know now that you remind me of his comments from LY- he also referred to the ladies as “old” —> hence Leg’s constant age-bashing this year I guess !

          Aviva looks 10 years older than she is. She should stfu honestly.

    • mrs peabody says:

      that was really a good article, thanks for the link. I suggest people go read it.

    • T-Rex says:

      Thanks for posting that’s a great article. Kind of justifies things we have speculated about on here, the fact you can’t sue another cast member due to contract obligations is a biggie. I would think from that article, if asked back Carole is “on board”

    • catmom1 says:

      Great article. Thanks for posting lillybee.

    • ladebra says:

      I really enjoyed reading this. Thank you ! And you are right DND, I love Carole more now.

      I am sure her What Remains is very good, I’m just not so sure I’m ready to read it. But her last one looks like a hoot! I think I’ll give that one a go. I really like her stile of writing. Writer-girl. lol.

  37. designernailsdiana says:

    HaPpY BiRtHdAy Ramonacoaster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  38. Orson says:

    Do the ghost writers that real writers hire hire their own ghost writers?

    As for the pass that Ramona wants on her issues with Mario, didn’t Luann get a pass on the “openness” of her marriage with the Count?

    • T-Rex says:

      Nope they showed OldCraggyBitchDrunkRamona bringing it up on old clips. I remember her bringing it up more than once.

      • chismosa™ says:

        There was a pass by Andy on going AT Lumann on tbe issue. That’s for sure. For that there was a definite pass. ⚠️🚧

        He gets away with going after Ramona for the simple fact that no one will attack him for going at her. If it was a hugely popular HW on some show he’d be raked over the coals.

        The snake and the detestable misogynist andy enjoyed it much.

  39. Powell says:

    I loved Carole, Heather and Kristen’s blogs and tweeted them so. Carole made my tweet a “Favorite”. Lu had a good blog too. I’m insulted by Aviva’s. Whether she cares or not which she often doesn’t she used “ghetto fabulous” and “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” in a derogatory and insulting manner. Sonja is just delusional in her blog. In the title of her blog she says she explains why she doesn’t talk about her businesses. She does no such thing and I tweeted her so. She says she doesn’t show her biz meetings because their private. That’s not an explanation as to why she doesn’t talk about her businesses. She can’t talk about what she doesn’t have. Talking about a legit biz and meetings about a “maybe business” are totally different. I tweeted her that Heather, Carole and Lu don’t show their biz meetings but we can buy their products. If Bravo cut every time she talks about her imaginary biz next season I will be happy. I don’t want Sonja to fail. If she truly wants some type of biz I want her to have it and for it to be successful. To me Sonja’s self-worth is tied up into having a “wealthy man” and that’s sad. I want her to get her head out of the yesteryear of mansions, private jets and yachts and to the reality of her not having hot water and interns.

    • designernailsdiana says:

      Adiva’s blog was a waste of space. It was a non blog. I was shocked it even got posted. When did Bravo stop letting people leave comments? I haven’t been to the site in a long time.

  40. AZGirl says:

    Good afternoon everyone! Ramona should get fired. I personally done with her.
    Happy Birthday Ramonacoaster!

  41. Powell says:

    Carole can’t sue Aviva but is it possible that Harper Lee’s estate or family could sue Aviva for defamation?

    • T-Rex says:

      Not that Ms Lee would but I would think that FauxLegMunchausenAdviva’s stupidity and ignorance isn’t really up for a lawsuit. Since Ms Lee is more a recluse, I would believe she would not even venture a comment to validate the issue with some Reality Ho-wife show.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Then I think many lawsuits would have been filed in the past as well. Aviva’s repeating, not making it up. As far as I can tell

  42. catmom1 says:

    Happy Birthday ramonacoaster. Hope it’s a great one!

  43. catmom1 says:

    For those who don’t read the blogs at Bravo, here’s a paragraph from Carole’s. My favorite part is the last sentence. I would have copied just that part, but it makes much more sense in context.

    “So let’s ask it again. “Who cares who writes books as long as they get written?” Sure. Whatever. Who cares. All the ladies have nannies. Aviva has one or two, and so her nannies raise her kids, right? No one cares who raises kids as long as they get raised? Right? Weird. The way Aviva beats her chest you’d think I accused her of ghost-parenting. She appears to be tone deaf to condescension and insults which probably accounts for her tacky habit of interrupting, and her screaming and that weird chest-pounding thing. I thought she might bust an implant! “

    • ladebra says:

      ok, that’s funny 😀

      Carole likes to compare writing to motherhood. A lot.

      I seriously don’t get why she gets all riled up at Aviva – Aviva is KKB 3.0. No rationalizing with her. Don’t get it!??
      Don’t protest too much with the crazy because then it looks weird !
      You lay with pigs ….. (As Sonja says)

      (Though pigs are very clean and one of the smartest animals)

      Yo Carole: almost 1 in 3 or 4 HWs have implants. It’s not even a “thing” anymore! It’s like Botox these days !
      And plenty of mothers get implants post-kids. So….. Keeping on that mother subject I guess.

    Am I the only one who thought Ramona looked rehearsed? Every time she answered a question, it seemed like I was watching a glib politician reply with well coached answers.

  45. Powell says:

    OMG I love love LOVE Carole’s interview. Everything was on point. I especially love this part.
    “But I’ve never had a conversation with her. Because I feel she’s not grounded in reality. You can’t talk to someone like that, because she might say something about what’s going on with the bespoke shirts in France, or the perfume deal with the Nigerian football team. You don’t even know what she’s going to say. In the reunion, she was talking about her yacht and her businesses. I don’t do well with someone like that. I know people love to hate Ramona, but she’s kind of really grounded in reality. So I can deal with that. When she’s rude, it’s real. It’s a tricky thing with the show, and you saw it with the reunion, because if you say, “Sonja is delusional,” you get labeled, like, a mean girl. It’s hard to keep saying, “You’re delusional.” When Josh said it, I thought he was right on, and funny. Like, Finally. She’s fucking bananas! And if you don’t want people to call you bananas, don’t act bananas.”

    I am divided in my thinking about Ramona and bringing up Mario, I think everyone who has commented has valid points, so I guess I will come down on the side of not giving a flying f*ck!!
    😉

    • Powell says:

      I read all the ladies blogs except Aviva. Kristen made a good point in hers. Ramona is on this show so she should have said something. Yes they totally do have a right to privacy but all Ramona has to say was something like they are going through some things and they are working together for their family. If she had Andy would not have kept asking questions in a different way and not called Ramona Stonewall Jackson.

      • chismosa™ says:

        I felt Ramona did do that but as I said ^^^

        He can get away with going after her.

        The c(o)untess didn’t deal with such inquisition by the spaniards. 🇪🇸

        Lu only got attacked by Ramona when Lu constantly, always, relentlessly went after Ramona all seasons ago. Out of spite, hate, envy- whatever. Always always after her. When Ramona responded back to her she’s the bad one. 👐🙈
        Snake is a snake is a snake.

        At least Avery will know her mother’s name in the future. You’ll love karma too luann.

        • ramonacoaster says:

          Lu holds herself as a paragon of class and a model of perfection that looks her nose down at people she considers lesser beings in terms of behavior. Ramona got fed up with Countess Haughtiness and pointed out her behavior that was reported in the gossip rags was less than stellar and that she should start policing her kids instead of other people. Ramona was on the defense and Lu was on the offense when Lu confronted her about not being in her music video and Ramona spoke about the rumors of Lu’s extramarital affairs.. I don’t remember Ramona speaking of anything that we didn’t already know from reading Pagesix.

          • chismosa™ says:

            AMEN & preach it by the choirs ! 🙌🙌

          • T-Rex says:

            Chis, I totally agree about Countless-Lu-Man, I still think she’s a snake and came off this season a bit better because we had two freakin crazy people on the show this year, that sort of deflected her personality. However, LetharioMario’s cheating has also been ALL over Pagesix, and that psycho-broad he was banging has gone to every tabloid she can to get her fifteen minutes of fame. There are pictures and texts that have been published, so again I don’t see the issue with MzAndy at least bringing up the situation. They all live in the NYC area and almost every publication in their area has reported the story, so it is news.

            • Powell says:

              T-Rex that’s how I see it too. Yup all of Lu’s exploits were on Page 6 and Ramona brought them to the forefront so fair is fair. Lu can do the same thing to Ramona. Also as T-Rex has said Mario has been w/different women for yrs so for Ramona to continue w/the pretense that their marriage is perfect and to constantly throw that in the ladies faces when she knows Mario cheats is laughable. So whatever is thrown out there on the show or at the reunion she should deal w/it like the classy woman she purports herself to be.

              • T-Rex says:

                Plus I would think that MzAndy runs in a lot of the same social circles as they do, and everyone dishes about others “dirty laundry”, again this isn’t something NEW. It was weird when OldCraggyBitchDrunkRamona tried to throw it back in his face about who he is sleeping with. Uhm, he’s single, not married and he is certainly not pretending to be in this fairy tale romantic relationship either, and he didn’t sign up for and cash a paycheck to have his life be portrayed on a TV show.

        • kit9 says:

          Ramona’s justification for dragging Luann’s marriage’s dirty secrets onto the show was that she was sick and tired of Luann presenting her life as perfect. Just another example of Ramona’s jaw dropping hypocrisy. And, incredibly, it wasn’t just Ramona relishing in trashing Luann’s marriage. I remember Mario making fun of the breakup of luann’s marriage…joking about how she was now, “countless”. Karma for Ramona and Mario, both.

          • chismosa™ says:

            I get it Kit – I so DO.

            I just think Ramona had had it with Luann putting on airs about everything. Every. Thing. So when she used the faux/ lame/ not real royal title of her husband – and looks down at everyone- that made Ra go after her about it. That no, countess – not everything about you is elegant and classy—- (Luann allegedly cheating also).

            I think Ramona with everything BUT marriage and Avery- NEVER claims perfection unlike the faux-countess.

            That’s all I meant.
            Not sure if it makes sense.

            Yes, Ramona was faking (or deluded) about Mario 😦

            Hey at least you and I hate Teresa ! 😆

    • ramonacoaster says:

      Thanks princesspindy!

    Don’t know if this had already been posted, but here’s another Radar story about Mario cheating again – just recently. As always, Radar on Line – grain of salt. http://radaronline.com/exclusives/2014/08/ramona-singer-mario-singer-mistress-cheating-again-divorce/

    • Exit4 says:

      And it came from the in touch and in style magazines that come out this week! Not the best sources right? Who knows? It wouldn’t surprise me-but it definitely kind of confirms that the networks and the magazines work together. She’s screaming “it’s allegations” on Tuesday-the rags come out Wednesday. Not a coincidence.

      • Powell says:

        The rags will publish something again since there is a part 3.

      • T-Rex says:

        Exit he has been cheating for YEARS! He is a serial-cheater, i remember that even in Season One, there were questions about his cheating, TheLunaticZarin made some offhand comments way back when it was still the whole TeamJill and TeamRamona fight. That dog is never going to change, OldCraggyBitchDrunkenRamona has known this for years and chooses to stay with him, in spite of his LetharioMario tendencies. He is an IDIOT and thinks with the body part that is getting him in trouble, so he is SO going to be busted again by some wannabe who wants her fifteen minutes of fame, it’s only a matter of time

        • Exit4 says:

          I believe that TRex! I do. This is just the first time he got caught by the public-because he hooked his caboose to a crazy train! With these shows, you know this, if WE don’t know about it-it isn’t happening. 😉

          I’m glad I caught you-I lost the bet-jersey only did 1.7+. Next week, they are repeating at 9pm-so what do you think? An 8 and 9 pm split?

          • T-Rex says:

            Also noticed the article stated that the picture of him with the mistress was taken August 2nd, this past weekend, uhm if he isn’t sleeping with her or trying to sleep with her why in the world would you be having a meal with her! Seriously, if my man was telling me that he was in love with me, wanted me back, didn’t want a divorce etc. and came within a hundred feet of that same mistress, it would be Adios, Sayonara, Au revoir, Auf Wiedersehen, Bsslama(moroccan) and don’t let the door hitcha where the good lord splitcha! (For the record, I couldn’t stay married to a cheater so this is all hypothetical)

      • TrashyT says:

        I unashamedly buy the trash every week and got mine today. One of them has a photo of Mario in a NYC restaurant with his girlfriend that was taken on August 2. They name the restaurant. Both mags say Ramona threw Mario out again. I hope she takes him to the cleaners.

      Thks. She’s still on life support. As of yesterday the docs/nurses are hopeful. They said they’ve seen people come out of this. She’s breathing pretty well and they’re going to see if she can breath on her own. My mom was there yesterday and she was talking to my aunt about helping her w/her plants. My aunt is a plant freak. Greenest thumb I’ve ever seen & she always helps my mom repot hers. My mom said my aunt hunched her shoulders as if to say she didn’t know. My mom told the doc and they said oh it’s reflexes. My mom said no. She heard me and was responding. My aunt does that. Hunches her shoulders when she’s asked a question. She also moves her eyes. My mom said my aunt opened her eyes a little and then a little wider when she was talking to her about her plants. I just keep praying all day every day. Thks for asking chismosa.

      Even in her court documents for the lawsuit with the Movie folks, she lists ONLY this movie as a producer. The movie made no money.

        • T-Rex says:

          Well, Forrest Whitaker won an Oscar in 2006, so if you use the Kevin Bacon six degrees of separation theory it could be related, since her movie came out also in that same year, maybe that’s what she did, LOL! Oh and Powell it has the auspicious accomplishment of being one of only 11 movies ever made that brought in less than $400.00

While I don’t care for her, I hope that things work out well for her, she doesn’t deserve all the crap that her husband put her through! I hope she excels and finds a “real man” that treats her well, and appreciates her. I don’t really know how to take twatter screen shots, but here is what was just posted!

    Ramona Singer @ramonasinger · 10m

    I have decided to move on with my life without Mario. I tried my best to make my marriage work. I am excited for the new chapter in my life.

    • Sus says:

      Ramona isn’t my favorite either but don’t think anyone deserves to be humiliated like that. If my husband stepped out, at least no one would be talking about it online unless I came here and spilled about the slut pig the cheating scumbucket chose to lay down with.

      I have always thought that Ramona provided the means for their lavish lifestyle. Trophy engraving isn’t paying for that fancy condo or house in the Hamptons. It will be interesting to see if Mario tries for palimony.

      • T-Rex says:

        I have a feeling this isn’t going to be a “nice” breakup unfortunately, which is probably why she tried to make it work. They have that gorgeous apartment, a home in The Hamptons and I think some other real estate. I hope that they do divorce amicably so that this whole mess isn’t played out all over Page Six for the next year. I am sure Ramona wants this to be quick and quiet, but not sure that LetharioMario does.

        • Sus says:

          I love their place in NYC. That’s how I’d want to live in NYC. I love how bright it is. Lots of light from outside.
          I’m mean and nasty so I’m loving the thought of Mario moving to a walk-up in Queens while Ramona keeps the gorgeous apartment.
          Maybe they have an ironclad pre-nup.
          Even the nasty side of me hopes it goes through without a lot of drama. It sucks for Avery.

      • Powell says:

        Sus isn’t that a family biz passed down and don’t they also sell jewelry, the crosses? I also thought he made some money back in the day playing tennis.

        • Sus says:

          It is a family business. . I really doubt that the business is what provides the fancy condo and house in the Hamptons. He was a tennis pro but not one that made McEnroe kind of money. His lavish life might be over if all the money comes from whatever Ramona does.

          • Exit4 says:

            He has and had plenty of money. The tennis stuff was a side gig. He’s one of the VPs. They sell the religious items, the jewelry (but Ramona is a part of that) and all the business related items-clocks and pens and plaques and crap that you get when you retire or as awards. It’s a very lucrative business.

            Ramona was financially stable when they got married. The rest they built together. Obviously, housewives gave Ramona a huge income boost the last few years-but it’s not forever. I don’t think either one of them can live the same lifestyle they have been separately.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Yes I always thought he made good money from his business.

      • kit9 says:

        They don’t just engrave, they sell trophies. That’s the core business. Hell, just kids sports would make a brisk business, I think. There are also the religious jewelry. It’s an old family bizness and I always assumed the money came from him.

    • mrs peabody says:

      As much as I hate to see a marriage end I am glad she is no longer willing to put up with his crap. No one deserves that. If he wants to play around then he should have ended it years ago. You go girl!

      • Amalfi says:

        I am going to guess it was Mario who left. I actually like Ramona quite a bit, but if Mario is with someone else, I am sure they didn’t love Ramona talking about her made up world where everything is “fine” and she and Mario are still together.

        She really doesn’t need him. And their daughter is grown and obviously needs no protection from the truth… if anyone it may have been Ramona who needed to protect herself from the truth. Feel bad for her and any other women in this position… but she is not dependent on him, is in great shape for someone much younger than her real age and I think there is someone for everyone…even crazy eyes, if she wants someone. I am guessing she may be quite happy on her own.

      • T-Rex says:

        God that guy is a piece of crap! I would think that regardless of whether she talks about LetharioMario, or not, in light of her now being a “single” lady, they would want her back. I am pretty sure that FauxLegMunchausenAdviva is gone, and I am not sure what they are going to do about DrunkenSlutDELUSIONALGreyGardensSonja, they know she is off her rocker, but is it for the cameras or for real? If it’s real Bravo better walk a thin line on whether to have her back, she could further lose the little bit of mind she has left.
        I am sure this piece by that Scumbag is completely LunaticZarin induced,she has been wanting Ramona(in light of her trouble today, going to place nice with her name, for today) to be fired for years, she has been so jealous that Ramona got to stay while she was FIRED. Going to be interesting to note that almost all the Ho-Wives of NY are now SINGLE and no longer Wives.

        • Exit4 says:

          That announcement guarantees Ramona’s return. And sonja will come with her. Like Andy said with Teresa, see the story through. It will be Ramona and Sonja-single in the city. Trolling for men. Aviva is finished though.

          I think articles like this-and the constant everyone’s getting fired rumors-are bogus. They can’t force Ramona to say any more then she wants to about her marriage, anymore then they can force Teresa to discuss her legal issues. Not that it can’t be addressed-but there’s a limit and bravo knows it and they know it going into each season. There’s no suprises. For all we know, Mario could put a gag order on her and it wont come up at all. And they won’t fire her for it-because they can’t.

        • Powell says:

          Ramona’s not going anywhere. She’ll talk about it in some aspect next season. And Sonja isn’t going anywhere. They like Sonja’s delusional shtick. Plus she’s Ramona’s BFF.

    • Powell says:

      About time huh T-Rex? Well Mario will surely be surprised to learn the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. I hope Ramona gets a big settlement.

      • T-Rex says:

        Oh and that chick he is schtooping is BSCrazy!! There is an article that she tired to get into a restaurant that Ramona was in, the owners stopped her, she asked to use the bathroom, they “escorted” her to and from the bathroom and she tried to make a run for it, and was yelling that she was still sleeping with LetharioMario, and she had to be physically removed. This was confirmed as truth by the manager of the restaurant. So to LetharioMario, good luck with that piece of whackadoo-sideass! If I were you I would hide all the knives and make sure no bunnies are any where to be found!

        http://pagesix.com/2014/07/19/mario-singers-ex-mistress-tries-to-confront-housewife-ramona/

      • Exit4 says:

        I don’t think it will be all that contentious. NY is an equitable distribution state. Money, property etc that they made while married gets divided. He keeps his business, since it’s family owned (and it’s a successful business). She keeps her business, because it was pre marriage. True Faith jewelry belongs to both of them (and was also pre housewives)-so that’s negotiable, but I think it’s an extension of Mario’s business. There’s no custody issues with Avery-she’s over 18. They can equally support her and I’m sure they will. Mario and Ramona married later in life (Ramona is the 2nd wife!) and were both very comfortable financially alone and together long before housewives. Ramona’s housewives money probably, surely made her the breadwinner the 6 years-but that is her money. Same with her wine (which she doesn’t own anyway) and her products (same deal). It could end up that she doesn’t warrant a settlement. She’ll be fine. This isn’t a Brandi/Eddie situation where the gets nothing and has nothing. Ramona worked on Wall Street years ago, I’m sure she and Mario have invested wisely and have a pre nup. Ramona is annoying-but she’s smart with her money.

    All the years that I’ve been on this blog, I always thought that you guys made up the term “Drinking the Kool-Aid”. I’m watching the TV show Cash Cab and a question was asked about that term. I didn’t know that it was from a mass suicide in of November 18, 1978. (roughly 918 people died)

    You learn something new everyday.

    • Exit4 says:

      Yep-the Jim jones cult. They were Americans-but built a place to live down in South America. My friends uncle was there, not as a member, but as a reporter. The day that happened they were leaving with some cult members who wanted out, a senator a TV crew and I can’t remember who else-when some other cult members ambushed and shot at them. He was shot-but didn’t die. A few people did. He hid in the jungle until help came. Later they learned about the mass suicide.

      • Powell says:

        Wow Exit! I remember every part of the tv movie and remember the reporter hiding in the woods. Thk goodness he survived that.

        • Exit4 says:

          The book he wrote is called suicide cult by Ron Javers. It’s out of print obviously, but if you can find it anywhere-it’s his first hand account of their visit and the ambush-plus the backstory. He was covering Jim jones for a San Francisco newspaper.

          That’s why you couldn’t possibly have known about this, LOL. They rarely talk about this any longer, it was a BIG deal when it happened though, a senator was shot and killed going down to reason with some of the americans to leave the cult etc.

    Dear Bethenny,

    I feel I owe you an apology and an explanation. I was buying some groceries today and needed sweetener and I saw your Skinny Girl Stevia on the shelf. Next to that was the house brand splenda. Here’s the thing… a box of 40 packets of your SG Stevia cost 12 cents more than a box of 200 house brand splenda. So I went with the house brand. Sorry about that and I wish you well in your endeavors.

    • T-Rex says:

      Chis, I think it’s because LetharioMario was photographed on Saturday having breakfast wtih the BSCrazy-PieceofSideAss and according to the information they were cuddling and kissing later in the day. Ramona had posted or twatted the day earlier that the story in the Tabloid was false, and allegations. I don’t think she knew that LetharioMario was shacked up with this woman in the Hamptons, while Ramona was still in the City. Did he leave her, yeah, I think he did, I think after some allegations a few weeks ago she gave him an ultimatum and he called her bluff and left her. i really think that he thought he would go back to being his cheating self, and she would do as she has always done, and turned a blind eye, but this time she didn’t.

        Ok I’m not married and so hesitate to say anything about this.
        Just not sure how to read how it went down.
        But I am a RareRamonaFan club member.

        But thanks – 😉

        • IIPHO, if one of the spouses cheats, they have broken the vows of forsaking all others and so have “left” the other spouse……whether they decide to stay together…..that has to be worked out…. between the 2 of them. I think Ramona would have stayed with him if he had made an effort, but obvs. he would rather be with his home wrecker. The stupid thing is that Mario will probably marry this chick and then cheat on her…he should just get divorced and stay single but they rarely do…

        • T-Rex says:

          Actually Chis,, it’s good for Ramona, he gave her the choice, stick with him as he cheats, and has always cheated, or let him leave and be on her own. I don’t think he ever intended to be faithful to her, as he hasn’t for many years. He is in LUST with this new piece of BSCrazy-Side=Ass, enough that he was willing to be filmed kissing her and meeting her in public, etc. He was gone emotionally from the relationship a Long time ago, and he knew she was insecure enough to just “take it” to stay married to him. I give her props for totally finally standing up and saying she isn’t going to take it any longer. I think she probably feels betrayed, and very foolish for staying with him for so long and putting up with his cheating ways because in her mind she had this great, sexy husband and she doesn’t think she could get any better. I hope she does, and finds a “real man” that will treat her well.

      • kit9 says:

        Yeah, if those photos are accurate, he wanted out. I mean, it was broad daylight and they were outside, so he wasn’t even attempting to hide it. And, he looks happy.

    • mrs peabody says:

      I like Ramona, I always have, she is one of my favorites on the show. I think she left him, he had a good deal going, why would he leave. I’m glad she is moving on, I don’t think she deserved that type of treatment. It’s obvious he had no respect for her or his marriage. I hope she will be fine and that Avery will be fine. Him I could care less about. I always thought he thought he was hot stuff. I didn’t

      • T-Rex says:

        Mrs P I have always disliked LetharioMario, he was just so “full” of himself, he definitely thought he was “all that and a bag o chips” . I think he thought that he could do whatever he wanted in that marriage, because Ramona couldn’t do any better than him. For her part, I think she was truly, madly in love with him, and she turned a blind eye to his cheating for many years, it’s just this time, there was absolutely no discretion on his part, which I think is horrible. He has a daughter, and for him to just decide he no longer cares who knows he is cheating is just sad. I hope Ramona realizes she CAN do way better than some cheating louse.

    ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ Re-Hires Fired Star Jacqueline Laurita http://www.tmz.com/2014/08/07/real-housewives-of-new-jersey-jacqueline-laurita-fired-rehired via @TMZ

    • Exit4 says:

      How does this help the show? Filming ended months ago! Hasn’t started for next year-not even close-and Dina will leave if she returns. I’m not sure about TMZs info on this one!

    • chismosa™ says:

      😳😳😳😳😳😳😳😳

      Sound the alarms 🚨🚨🚓🚓🚓🚓🚓

    • chismosa™ says:

      Ok:

      Producers say when Laurita is on she’s great. <<<< LOLOLOL

      WHAT:

      "They let her go because she was dealing with family issues at the time and she was so preoccupied she lost her edge. "

      We're told Laurita's sister-in-law is pissed she's returning. <<<<< this i love. 💥

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      I think VV started that rumor because she missed announcing the Manifesto is up! LOL!

    • T-Rex says:

      VV, like the others have posted, not sure where they got their “source” on this one, but this season hasn’t finished airing, filming is over, and TheConvictFelonJuicy’s haven’t even been sentenced yet. I wonder if Bravo placed this blind item to see what the fan reaction would be IF they decide to even bring her back. She is the middle of bankruptcy crap too, they are also sell their home to move into something they can actually probably afford. I know that the JackDanielsLauritas need money right now, I don’t think Chris is working, except with that lousy water deal, which I think is not making much money. According to Zillow this house is still for sale and on 08/06/2014 they did a price modification and lowered it since they have had no takers. DiabolicalDina needs the show money as well, since TwoTimingTommy may be finally kicking her out of his house, so although she might get mad regarding the addition of her sister-in-law, she may want the show money enough to stay. I wonder if “word on the street” is true and ConvictFelonLyinTeresa is going to serve time, and they need to bring back JackDanielsLaurita because those newbies aren’t cutting it, and they won’t have ConvictFelonLyinTeresa for filming for about a year.

    Holy $hit I didn’t know Mario was from my hometown originally. 😳😁

    Ramona Eve Mazur, the owner of R. M. Fashions in New York, and Mario Singer, the vice president of Classic Medallics and Frederick Singer & Sons,a manufacturer of religious gifts and jewelry in Long Island City, Queens, were married yesterday at Abigail Kirsch at Tappan Hill in Tarrytown, N.Y., by the Rev. John Henry, an Episcopal minister. Mrs. Singer, 35 years old, is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bohdan Mazur of Staatsburg, N.Y. Mr. Singer, 38, is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Singer of Manhasset, L.I. The bridegroom’s previous marriage ended in divorce.

    • Veena (NMD) says:

      I find it funny that they mentioned he was divorced in his wedding announcement. #tacky

      • T-Rex says:

        OMG I am with you Veena, who writes that they had been previously married in their wedding announcement, I wonder who posted this, whether Ramona sent it to the New York Times or her husband’s family did. That was a weird thing to do.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Hi Veena — this is actually the norm on the “gold standard” bridal announcements- the NY Times wedding section- the sports pages for women – (like sex and city, Charlotte)

        I always see the note of the previous divorce.

        But I agree it’s kind of tacky!

    • Powell says:

      Didn’t know he was previously married. Does he have other kids?😱

  74. ladebra says:

    I think Sonya has been reading the blog again!

    • Sus says:

      Oh! Hey Sonja, I have a few things to say to you.
      1. Please keep your clothes on. It isn’t cute, sexy or becoming to you to shake your naked bits. Especially on tv.
      2. Stop manhandling men. You are becoming the female George! I felt sorry for that kid on the boat and even sorrier for you that you thought he was interested.
      3. Good for you for dumping Harry.
      4. RHONY isn’t going to support you forever. If you can’t afford to get the hot water going, you can’t afford that apartment!! You are going to end up being Ramona’s assistant.
      5. You are DELUSIONAL!!!!!!!!

    • chismosa™ says:

      Sonja I love you !!!!! Hi 👋👋👋👋

    • chismosa™ says:

      PRINCESS P you just made me spit on my phone !!!!

      Thanks for the laughs 😆 😆

    • Powell says:

      YES! 🙂

    • Powell says:

      So it made $366 back then. Add $9.99 to that. 😏 😯

    I just watched Leah Remini’s show and really enjoyed it… is anyone else catching it.

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      Yes! I love that show! Have not watched tonight though.

    • chismosa™ says:

      I saw a snippet and it looked funny

      Is that her sister? The sister looks like her mom.
      Leah looks nothing like her mom.

      Where is her dad? Is he still in “”the Church””👽👽👽?

  76. chismosa™ says:

    Princess P – my note to you is above ^^^^^

    I’m dyin’

  77. chismosa™ says:

    MRS P—-> I hope your kids are safe in HI

    Iselle and Julio seem to be on their way. 😦

    • Powell says:

      Yes I was thinking about them when GMA was showing it. Praying the kids are alright Mrs P.

  78. TrashyT says:

    I watched last weeks Leah Remini, have recorded tonight’s to watch later so can’t answer about dad or sister. Her husband is a hoot!

    Before I forget again, I’d like to say a special thanks to Jan for keeping things rolling along here in the absence of Veena and Jeff. It is much appreciated… And a big thank you to all the contributors who make this such a great site.

    Back to reading my trashy magazines.

  79. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. 🇹🇬🇮🇫🌅
    I hope you all a great day.

    I haven’t watched a full epi of LeAnn and Eddie’s show yet. Here’s an article from Twitter this morn about last night’s epi.
    &http://www.fishwrapper.com/post/2014/08/08/leann-rimes-eddie-cibrian-reality-show-recap-series-photos-butt-tweet-selfie-starvation-diets-pictures-photos/

    • ladebra says:

      It’s Friday Friday Friday!

      I watched a few episodes of Eddie and LeAnn but stopped watching. I didn’t hate it but watching them for two episodes was enough.

      Hope your auntie is doing better Powell. Shout out to Jeff!

      • Powell says:

        Hey ladebra. Yeah I’ve watched maybe 10-15 minutes of 2 or 3 epis. Kinda boring. They both seem needy, dependent on one another but a weird needy. Not a husband/wife that need each other. IDK. Their marriage seems weird. LOL I’m using Carole’s weird the way she used it for Aviva. 🙂

  80. Powell says:

    Did y’all check out The Extreme Guide to Parenting last night? I only watched a few minutes w/the holistic mother in the holistic store w/her daughter and her daughter being frustrated w/her mother because it was supposed to be a mother daughter day and her mother was more interested in holistic jabber in the store w/the owner than paying attention to her daughter and her daughter was pointing that out. Her mother didn’t have a clue. She and her husband were on GMA and I have no idea what she was talking about.
    Then last night the showed Tori Spelling’s friends who she refers to as Guncles, Gay Uncles. I remember when they adopted their baby on Tori’s show. Their daughter looks like she’s 3/4 and their problem was finding a new nanny and being frustrated parents in the car w/their daughter crying, whining. That’s all I watched. I need to see the entire epi.

    • Sus says:

      I watched it and determined I’m too lazy to be an extreme parent.

      Thank you for identifying the guncles. I thought I recognized them but then chastised myself that not all gay people look and act alike! They ended up allowing the kid to spend the night at Nana’s. I was happy about that. It was so obvious how much Nana loved her and vice versa. Nana dressed them in matching pjs. It was really cute. There’s nothing like a grandparent’s love for their grandchild. I treasure my memories of spending time with mine.

      I had never heard of indigo children before. I always thought those kids behaved badly, not that they were very special. Not sure how I would react if my kid was on the roof telling me to F off. Probably not good.
