Project Runway – The Rainway / Don’t Be Tardy – Future Shock

Project Runway

S13E8 “The Rainway”

By Princess Pindy

For a huge part of the country this episode is very timely. The designers are tasked with making a “avant-garde style that must stand up to the elements, particularly rain.” Sounds dumb, IPPHO.  It would appear that the producers are running out of ideas for challenges. Here in San Diego the weather has been hot, hot, hot and dry, dry, dry.  We need the rain.  Seeing all the flooding and seeing posts about the rain makes me feel like I am living in another world.  The guest judge is Caitlin Fitzgerald from “Masters of Sex” that airs on Showtime.  I am not sure why they have the guest judges.  Their comments rarely make the editor’s cut and don’t really add much to the show.  But I guess “in theory” it is fun to see “Celebrities”.  It just hasn’t happened yet this season….

Once again we start the episode in the apartments. Blah, blah, blah…Sam is gone, boo hoo. Korina is thrilled that she has immunity for this week.

PR S13E8_1Tim and Heidi announce the challenge and are so pleased with themselves. They love saying “The Rainway.”  The models will be walking on a runway with pouring rain coming down.  Shameless Samsung Curve TV plug aside, they want forward thinking design for this Avant-Garde challenge.  I laughed out loud at Kini’s Talking Head after Heidi and Tim announced the challenge.  He just said, “What The F*ck???”, summed it up perfectly! The designers get two days and $300 to make their waterproof look.  Also they will get heavy duty construction items to help in the making of their look.

The designers are sketching and some of the ideas are very cool. But my attention was diverted by Fade’s shirt that says, “Make it stop”, I want that shirt! I saw a shirt yesterday that said, “Leave Me Alone”, I almost bought it. I know the fabrics that they are using intimately.  They can be “sew” easy yet they can be “sew” difficult, impossible to manipulate and unforgiving.  Poor Fade is stuck and he is empty.  I know how that feels, when you just don’t know what to do.  I like his designs so I hope he can “Make it work!”

Sandhya is happy and using lots of colors. Kini has a skirt that looks like a closed umbrella, it cool. It makes Tim smile, me too.  Sean is putting Rit dye (another shameless product placement) in mesh packets on the seams of his white dress.  His hope is that the rain will make the dye run on his dress.  Tim had chills hearing about it.  Tim loves it.  I hope it works.  It could be awesome.  Emily is worried her look is too “fetish” Tim says, “well if they say that, you knooooow what’s on their mind.”  Tim is a crack-up!

Ohh…Amanda’s look is bad..she has a red spot on the vajayjay area and Tim points it out and says “This is nothing if it is not the season of the vagina.” She says, “Oh hello” hahaha, she didn’t even notice.  I will be surprised to see if she can pull it off.  Fade is in the weeds… He doesn’t really have a clue what he is doing and Tim is speechless. Tim being speechless is not a good thing.  Tim tells him to “turn up the volume” and Fade doesn’t agree with that.  I think Fade is losing it.  Tim is dubious about Sanhya’s look.  Tim is glad that Sandhya says it is “skittish” so he didn’t have to.  It looks like clown leisure wear to me.  Korina is making a mythological creature, like a Thunderbird with wings.  I think Tim is dubious again, he is just too nice to say it.  It looks like bad Cosplay.

The girls get everyone to go up on the roof and drink wine. They are so happy that they have a “two day challenge”.  They are stupid to be drinking, they should be getting sleep, IPPHO!!

Korina’s look is bad and she feels lucky to have immunity, she should. Sandhya is putting silver pinwheels on a clear plastic coat in hopes that the rain will move the pinwheels…idk, we will see. The designers call home.  Fade thinks he is going to be home soon.  I hate to say this because I like him but “Aww, looook, someone’s crying.”  (gravel, gravel….)  I feel bad for him.  He is a very talented man. Fade says, “Weak, emotional people having a lot of cry fests. That is what Project Runway does to people.”  I bet it does!!!!  But I don’t think any of them are weak, I think the schedule must be grueling and pushes you to your limit.  Sean is having trouble executing his dye idea… he tried to pour the dye into the packets already sewn on to the dress.  OMG, another plug for Samsung….a refrigerator this time, I do love my Samsung refrigerator though. And of course the Mary Kay and Phillip B product placement…not to mention Brother, Mood and Gotham Apartments.  The production costs must be pretty low having all these sponsors, don’t ya think?

The Rainway

A new experience for Project Runway. A 360 degree look, like the Samsung Curve, get it??  See how they tied that in with Project Runway…???  Marketing geniuses I am telling you!!!

Again with Anonymity of the runway. Wow it is pouring.

IPPHO: Char’s look is pretty good.  It stays together and doesn’t fall apart, always a plus.  Sandhya the pinwheels are not moving, Insane Clown Posse!  Emily, it looks good but not the winner.  Alexander, I don’t know what I think, he’s happy.  Fade, his look is cool but not really meeting the challenge. Korina, it looks better with the new design, she redid her whole look but it is still bad. Amanda, it is weird. She says they are eyeballs, one of them fell off.  Kini, his design is so cool, awesome, I love it, he better win.  Sean, his dye idea worked, Heidi looked delighted.

PR S13E8_2

Highs and Lows

Amanda, Alexander and Char are safe. The Judges say….

Kini; Heidi loves it. Nina thinks it’s “sublime”.  Zac loves it, says “you brought it”.  Korina; Heidi is not impressed, neither was I.  Guest says it looks like Halloween costume.  Zac says it is lackluster and she is lucky to have immunity. Yes she is!!  Sandhya; Heidi likes it…. seriously???  Zac says she has a strong signature.  Guest loves the pinwheels.  Nina says it is at the tipping point of looking circusy.  Girl that ship sailed yesterday!!  Fade;  Nina thinks it looks gimmicky, Heidi, thinks it looks like a map.  Sean; Heidi loves how the dress became alive in the rain.  Guest was excited, (rolling my eyes), a fairy tale, (come on.)  Nina loves the way he thinks.  Zac thought it was exceptional.  Emily; Zac thinks it was not successful.  Nina, thinks it is dated.  Heidi didn’t hate it as much as the other judges. LOL!  Nina thinks it is cliché, it’s been done.  Poor Emily, they were harsh….  “That is so last season!”

Emily and Fade are the bottom two and it is between Sean and Kini to win. Heidi wants Kini to win.  Nina and Zac want Sean to win.  The guest agrees with Heidi.  Let’s see who wins, between the judges that is!!  Sean is the winner.  (Arrow to the heart for Kini.)  But wait…. Kini is also the winner!!!!  It’s a double win!!! YAY!!!!  I am happy for Kini.  Looks like the judges all go their way.  Fade is out.  Emily is safe.  Heidi is sorry to see him go.  They blah, blah, blah in German and say goodbye.  I think he was ready to go home.  I liked his stuff.  He knows that he can take on the world.

Don’t Be Tardy

S3E10 “Future Shock”

By TexasTart

The Biermanns are out of the woods and back in civilization.  Kim and Kroy are rolling into Miami Beach for Kim to meet with a plastic surgeon. She’s finished having babies and wants her body back.  She has to stay sexy for her husband who is seven years younger.  Kim makes a video phone call to check in with Sweetie and say hello to Kaia.  They arrive at destination and left waiting a while for the doctor to join them and they begin to play with the breast implant samples on the desk. Kroy shoves some up his shirt. Kim calls Sweetie to check on her kids again and Sweetie says “again?” among other things. There’s nothing going on since her last call.   Dr. Leonard Hochstein walks in the office. He’s married to Lisa, a Real Housewife of Miami.

Dr. Lenny is world renowned and nicknamed The Boob God™. I’ve discovered that he’s actually had that name trademarked. He asks Kim if she’s ever had any kind of surgery on her breasts or abdomen before. She replies, yes, on her boobs. What cup size? Double D.  What cup size would you like to be?  Same, just wants them perkier and wants a teardrop shape.  For the stomach, she wants the doctor to make her a six pack and he chuckles that he will tighten it up and remove excess skin, but she has to work for the six pack.  Like go to a gym?  Yes, he said. In a talking head she said “well that’s not why I go to a plastic surgeon, boo boo.”  She hasn’t done a sit-up since before KJ was conceived and doesn’t seem much interested in it now either!

DBT S3E10_1Dr. Lenny goes to do a physical exam and she just has an open jacket her breasts and stomach are exposed to our view, not just the doctor.  Back to his office to discuss the recovery limitations. She could go back home after one day, in a car, no flying.  Kim was thrilled to be able to do this and go back to the kids right away.  He told her she would need to be bent over for the first 10 days due to the stomach surgery and Kim said, that’s okay she’s used to being bent over a lot, so it’s fine. Chuckles.

Kim is very pleased to know she can get what she wants and not be laid up for too long, though it sound like Kroy is going to have to play both Dad and Mom for a while.   She proclaims she has the best hubby ever and was not doing this surgery for him, but for herself.   Kroy was distracting me in that gray shirt and tight white pants this entire segment!

Back at home and on the porch Kim and Kroy talk about how nice it is to have the security system when they’re away to check on things. Which makes you wonder why she has to call Sweetie on video phone every 30 minutes.  Kim and Kroy discuss the logistics of taking care of the kids and what not while she’s out for surgery and recovering.  Kroy is cutting KJ’s fingernails during this conversation.  It’s obvious that all of the children are so comfortable with Kroy caring for them.  Safe to say he’s very much a hands on father and this is not just for show.

It’s a new day and the family is gathered in the kitchen. The girls just got home from school. Ariana is asking if she can begin dating. Kim exclaims “you’re 12!” This subject makes Kim’s stomach hurt. Kim asks a bunch of questions and has no intention to allow her to date yet.  So Ariana starts in about having friends over. She does not discourage easily. 

DBT S3E10_2Kim’s back in the kitchen mixing up a batch of cookies. Ariana greets three of her friends at the door.  Kim asks the other girls if they have boyfriends and they said yes, but just at school, not on dates.  The girls practice some cheerleading moves and then go into the man cave.  Kroy tinkers with the lights to scare them. Ariana gets a boy on Facetime, which was basically a video phone.  Kim and Kroy are wondering what they are doing in there and utilize the security system to intercept the boy on video and ask some questions then he’s patched through to the girls.  They get all giggly and Kim interrupts the fun to tell Ariana it’s time to say goodbye to her boy toy.   Thank God for the security system, Kim says.  They are heavily advertising their security this season, but not once have shown or mentioned the manufacturer.

Its night time, Kroy and Kim are in the hot tub and the girls think they’ll give them some of their own medicine by tinkering with the light controls and spying on them.  Kim calls out the girls for playing tricks. The girls are fussing about being spied on and how they need their privacy. Kim and Kroy laugh at them. Kim in a talking head says “you get privacy when you’re 18 – bye!” with a wink.  Kim threatens to have a seventh child if she’s not left in private with Kroy! But wait, isn’t that the thing that causes the children?!

Now they’re in the gym viewing the security monitor in KJ’s room and ask Lana to stop trying to work out while caring for the boy.  I didn’t see anything wrong with that, he was being watched!  The electronic security theme is getting old and starting to make y’all look nuts, what else do you have for us?!

Awww, the twins! They’re seven months old, in high chairs being fed by their Mom and Dad. So cute even though their mom puts some decoration on their head everyday. Kim and Kroy talk about the surgery is three weeks away.  She discusses that she debates whether she should be doing this when she has six kids to care for. Good question Kim.  Kroy talks about he’s ready to care for the kids when she’s laid up. As usual, Kroy’s a very supportive and all around great guy.

Next week. Kim appears to be going through with the plastic surgery.

    I’m bringing this over, cause it bugs me 😛

    Hey PP, our Fashionista! Take a look at the jacket Kristen is wearing. Is this a new thing? Cause it looks like a runway challenge where they ran out of time!

    • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

      Kristen looks like the actress, Anna Gunn from Breaking Bad, IMO. There was a picture of her, Camille, and Cynthia on the a Runway modeling crazy looking bridal wear–Kristen’s new boob job is not so nice.

      • chismosa says:

        Hi Mel- listen i’ve been thinking of you and i need to get a list of books to you… i’m sorry!

        I thought Kristen had new boobs all season long — ???? They always seemed bouncy and non-bra-supported- so i thought she got the ‘job’ pre-reunion???

        Kristen has a long face- maybe that’s why she looks like Skylar…
        (I’m into Br. Bad BIG TIME NOW… season 4!….. it’s a heart attack every episode….)

        • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

          Hi Chismosita! Please let me know of any good books when you can. 😉

          I thought her boobs were fine all season long, but the picture I saw yesterday at NYFW– not good.
          I’m close to ending Season 2 of Breaking Bad and it’s really good in a depressing stressful way. Hehe

    • It is dumb. It looks like the sleeves were just cut off. It also reminds me of what some women wore in the 80s instead of a suit jacket, it was a jacket vest. Ugly then and now!

    • chismosa says:

      The shoes i die… overall mix of look – yuck. She’s trying a menswear/ femme lace- mashup and it’s a fail imo.

      TOO MUCH LIPLINER. yuck. (nude colored)

      I still find her stunning. O_o

  2. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. 🇹🇬🇮🇫 I hope you don’t work too hard today and start to enjoy the weekend after you get off from work. 🚫 ⏰ and getting up w/the 🐓 for a few days. Have a great day everyone. 🌅 🌞

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Hey Powell and Lainey! I’m not even going to say the R word, but it’s r-ing out now and will be throughout the day. Ark alert!

      33 years ago, I did the smartest thing ever in my entire life to date – I got married! Hubs took me to my favorite pizza place last night to celebrate. It’s the small things in life that make me the happiest!

      Something about the Northern Lights being visible in parts of the country tonight. If the clouds ever clear around her, I will be out around midnight tonight to see them.

      Celebrate Friday and I thank my husband for 33 years of total bliss . . . O.K., 99.9%; no one’s that perfect!

    • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

      Hi Powell! 🙂

  3. LaineyLainey says:

    Just read the PR blog…Pindy you cracked me up…gravel gravel…and Insane Clown Posse. So funny! Great blog, girl. Hooray for Kini!!!

    I could’ve sworn Sandiya, Sandia, Sanjaya said “kiddish”…but my hearing has always been questionable.

    Jan, I will read don’t be tardy blog after work. My dvr didn’t record it. Rude. Laterz Ladies and gent! Have a stupendous day!

  4. Foxymel11(Mel) says:

    Good morning everyone! It’s raining again over here.

    Thanks for the great blogs, Princess Pindy and Tartsy!

    I think you’re right about PR running out of ideas for challenges. I haven’t caught the show yet, but if I want to go out and it happens to rain, I’d wear a raincoat and have an umbrella. I don’t need to buy clothes specifically to absorb water.

    I was wondering where Kim got her amazing post-baby body. Dr. Hochstein is probably like 20 mins. Away from me, if I ever want to transform my body into Kim’s. Wink wink lol

    I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

    • chismosa says:

      Wow- are dr. & mrs. Hochstein– did they move to the house on the ‘island’ – i’m blanking on it now…. the one where Leah has her house?
      She was sweet- but i don’t like the work on her AT ALL. Her boobs and face were just …. too much! :O

      • Powell says:

        Chismosa I’d like to know that too. Last we heard they were still battling it out w/the historical society. Since there’s no more Miami maybe T-Rex can do her sleuthing. 🙂

        • chismosa says:

          yeah!
          BEACON (emoji) to TREX…… beep beep beep….

          And the florida angle, maybe she can get more info!

          Hope you’re feeling better today Powell- headaches-wise.

      • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

        I wonder too if they’ve moved into their new home. If they renew RHOM, I hope Lisa is still on since she’s rich and is a housewife. I read that Lea and Joanna have been asked back. Who knows?!

  5. T-Rex says:

    Todays Ho-Wife “I shit you not” information, we have one CrooksBrooks, yet again, on TAPE, copping to the fact that he cheats on IckyVIcky, and does so pretty regularly, including hookers. I hope she makes him wear a “hat” on that love tank nozzle, or she should be heading off to the Clinic this morning for a checkup! Oh and I read that CrooksBrooks has been in sex rehab a couple of times, his latest rehab was back in 2006. IckyVicky has apparently been “laughing” off the cheating rumors with the old lines, we aren’t married nor living together so he can do what he wants, UGH. Seriously, I hope she can find some guy out there because CrooksBrooks is NOT the guy for her, sorry Ickyvicky, but he is USING you! Apparently the Vodka lawsuit is still ongoing I will try to get more information on that one, I had heard that IckyVicky had originally come to settlement on her part, but that she has since broken the agreement, so I don’t know if she is still being also sued. http://www.people.com/article/vicki-gunvalson-cheating-rumors-brooks

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Vicki is without a doubt the most stupid and insecure woman I’ve ever seen. Somewhere in her life she was emotionally scarred and now she’s grabbing at anything that fills that void. Brooks could bring home 12 other women and she would joyfully join in. She’s just that desperate. He has her right where he wants her. I feel no pity for her. Stock up on the penicillin Vick, you’re going to need it and probably already do. This is one thing Tamra and I can agree on.

      • T-Rex says:

        HH – I hear you! I was raised to be independent as was my sister, and we were both told non-stop not to let some “man” define us, or were we to be “dependent” on one either. IckyVicky cannot be without a “love tank nozzle” of apparently she is worthless. She left her first husband, only after Donn(who she had been cheating with for more than year) agreed to marry her if she left her husband. She cheated on Donn, and I personally think that CrooksBrooks told her he would marry her if she left Donn, but reneged on that promise, or she realized he would take her for every dime she had if she married him. Who knows. I also heard Donn left her after she finally admitted to cheating with CrooksBrooks and that she TRIED to get Donn back at some point and stop the divorce, but he told her to go “pound sand” and that he was DONE with her. I can’t understand women who feel they are worthless without a man in their life! Look a worthless, piece of crap that has dragged you down, oh and dragged you into a massive lawsuit on top of it, hurt your family by putting a wedge between mother and daughter, yeah he is a fine catch. Like you I hate to agree with TrailerTrashTrampySue, but look if she can see what a lousy jerk he is, why can’t IckyVicky

        • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

          Hi T-Rex, I don’t you don’t watch the RHOC, but on the episode of secrets revealed (no new secrets were revealed, btw) Vicki implied that she was buying a house since her current one is for sale–Andy asked Brooks and Vicki if he was moving in and he said yes. He also said that he’s going to be paying rent and that meant he had a stake in the house if Vicki decided to sell it later on. I was like, huh?! Just because you pay rent makes you half owner of a home? This guy is a straight up weasel! Vicki is just a desperate idiot to continue to involve herself with this loser. IMO.

          • T-Rex says:

            FoxyMel, in addition I looked at the original lawsuit documents, IckyVicky gave CrooksBrooks a share of 16.667 in the IckyVickyVodka business, without the other partners consent, then he tried to shake down the guy that owned most of the business for $50,000 as CrooksBrooks needed to pay off child support debts and other debts he owed the child support it was “claimed” was to keep him out of jail. We now know that IckyVicky paid those child support debts, since the main stockholder told CrooksBrooks to go “pound sand” and he was furious that IckyVicky sold him a stake in the company without his approval, and there was a whole lot of Bravo stuff that IckyVicky was offering as was CrooksBrooks, like he was a freakin member of the cast. This guy’s “weenie” must be made of freakin platinum or something for her to be this foolish with her money and contracts. I have the original documents for the lawsuit. Not sure if someone wants to add a folder for the Ho-Wives lawsuits here. OH and IckyVicky is MOST CERTAINLY paying the legal bills. The original attorney is HER attorney and then along the line he also took in Brooks as a client on the lawsuit. The other dude being sued, another original investor had a totally separate attorney and now is representing himself, although he sold his stake in the business years ago. Oh, and unless your “weenie ass” is on the title it doesn’t mean you own crap, unless you are going to file Palimony charges, which I wouldn’t put past CrooksBrooks in a heartbeat! If IckyVicky doesn’t think he would sue her once they break up, I got a bridge in Brooklyn for sale!

            • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

              He has to be drugging her– Lol weenie made of platinum.
              I can’t believe this info. you’re telling me. This guy is a dangerous. I feel like slapping this guy, I’m so mad!

      • Powell says:

        Yeah Husker. She’s desperate and can’t bear to be alone. I’d become a Nun before I’d even let Brooks look my way.

    • Powell says:

      AH HA T-Rex!! It just hit me. 💭 💡 That’s why he’s always got a hallmark card in hand and comes up w/the corny one liners. He’s a sex addict and that’s a part of his arsenal. DUH what’s wrong w/Vicki?! She can’t see it? She’s like the woman that was married to “Clark Rockefeller”. She was smart in biz but stupid about her then BF who became her husband. How can Vicki have all the tools at her fingertips to do her biz but not use them to investigate this man? She could have hired a PI to do the leg work. CrooksBrooks is slippery and slimy. He’s just like a 🐍 and Vicki is 🙊🙈🙉 .

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Vicki doesn’t want to know the truth about Brooks, and if she does know the truth, she doesn’t want to believe it. She calls it forgiveness, but the rest of us call it blindness. He has hoodwinked her and she’s totally buying in. Can’t understand why Heather, Lizzie and Shannon can’t see it as well. Golly gee, I so hate having to agree with Tamra!

      • T-Rex says:

        Powell, the thing is she HAS been given all the information, her daughter researched the crap out CrooksBrooks, and her daughter went to the blog sites and got the legal crap on him and IckyVicky, just sticks her fingers in her ears and goes, LA LA LA LA LA! I don’t want to hear this crap! She PAID for his arrears in Child Support so he wouldn’t go to jail, she is PAYING for the lawyers in the Vodka lawsuit, I am sure she is PAYING for an apartment for him in California, since he doesn’t actually live there. He lived in another state when he met IckyVicky and they started schtooping. She would meet him out of town at insurance seminars she was going to and she would have him sleep in her hotel room. She tried to get Donn back and he refused to take her back and so now all she has is CrooksBrooks to fill her LoveTank, although I would think an electric “doo-dad” would serve her purpose better and cost her a whole lot less money at this point!

  6. HuskerHuny says:

    I don’t watch Tardy, but I did read the review of last night’s show. This is what I’m left with. We are raising a generation of girls who will believe that the only way to a man’s heart is through plastic surgery. Is anyone trying to instill in their daughters self confidence and pride in how God made them? That a woman’s true beauty is in her heart and soul and not in her outer features? It’s time to start celebrating what’s on the inside and not the superficial outer self.

    • Exit4 says:

      I only half agree with you. I would bet Kim is doing it for herself as much as her man! Add the pressure of being in the public eye-outsiders are more cruel then a husband could ever be, in that realm. I’d love to go under and lose the C-section(a) pooch and smooth out the scar area a little! I probably never will. My husband calls them my “battle scars”! My mom had eye surgery in the late 80s (when typical suburban moms weren’t) b/c she inherited droopy lids from her dad. She wasn’t 50 yet, she hated the way it made her look older and got it fixed. I couldn’t look at her for days! It was so gross! She didn’t do it for anyone but her and my dad agreed because it made HER happy. He didn’t care at all. I’ve done microdermabrasion, IPL laser on my face and next up is a chemical peel. Thank you jersey shore summers of the past when baby oil was “sunscreen”. My husband asks “why”? Because it makes me happy that’s why. I want to be happy with the me in the mirror-it’s all about me! Just like the hair coloring, waxing etc, etc. I’m the same inside with or without it all-but being happy with the outside makes me feel good on the inside too. Are there limits? Yes. Do people go to far? Absolutely. It’s a delicate balance between understanding what’s inside that counts-but not being afraid to be a little self centered sometimes and want the outside to look good too!

      • HuskerHuny says:

        I have some rather unfortunate scars, bumps and disfigurements, but I celebrate them. One in particular (which would take pages and pages to describe what it is and why I have it) is rather large and very noticeable. I’ve had the offer from my reconstructive/plastic surgeon to ‘fix’ it, but why? It doesn’t define me. But Miss Exit4, I sure do appreciate your opinion on this and from where I sit, I think you’re beautiful!

      • chismosa says:

        Hi Exit— i’m planning on some chemical peels soon… so i’ve been doing so much research. Your comment reminded me of it. I found this company that you can order peels direct from this scientist woman- she also sells on amazon- people RAVE about it- she’s like 20$ for a bottle of like 8 peels– when you can pay hundreds, or thousands to go to a derm or medspa or whatevah to get them done.
        My skin is type IV and not ideal for lasers and i’ve had a VIpeel and it was like NOTHING on my face, so i’m doing major major research. Would love to do one before this wedding i have next month.
        (the company’s name is Skin Obsession btw…. )

        I think i’m going to become a person who does peels on their own faces at home alone, i’m that psycho about my skin. LOL.

        I don’t watch Kim, but i figured this chick has done work between pregnancies that we didn’t know about.
        Can you get pregnant AFTER a tummy tuck? I know you’re not supposed to… i always thought she had that done…. and then woopsie #6,7,8 kids came….
        She’s just so gross i can’t deal with her.

        • Powell says:

          I don’t think Kim has done tummy tucks in between pregnancies but I do think she’s been doing that Biolaug or whatever it’s called where the machine is run over the body part and it helps to melt the fat. Now since she’s had the twins I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s had more invasive procedures.

            Vela sculpt I think it’s called. Adding to list with spider vein lasers. Thank you babies. Not all at once, but it’s on the list….

        • I know which peel you’re talking about! Got really good reviews. Just be careful if you happen to have any broken capillaries on your face because apparently it can cause even more of them. That’s why I was hesitant to get one. Let us know how it goes. 🙂

        • If you’re going to do it for an upcoming wedding, then do a small patch on your face before you do your whole face. I bet it’ll look great!

        • Thanks Chis, I just ordered the 20% Glycolic Peel, I have never had stronger than 10% so I want to start off slow since my skin is in pretty good condition. I have stayed out the sun since I was 22 and always wear a hat out by my pool. Free Shipping!!! gotta love it!!

          • Exit4 says:

            Smart girl! I am not as careful with the sun. More so in the last 5 years though. You Cali brats get it all year long-we only get a few short months! 😉
            I have been using eye cream since my 20s, so that helps! I’m not a leather face or anything-but there’s damage.

            I used home glycols before-and they work ok. But I want the doctor grade, eat my face off, look like Samantha on SATC, find the baby’s butt underneath peel.

            Chismosa-I’m still going to check those out as maintainence. Except from may to sept-I put no irritants on my face in summer, because Of being in the sun. Next year I’m getting a hat. I swear! There’s a local doc who does living social deals-that’s where I got the IPL. Awesome prices if you get the deal. I’m cheap-Ill wait for one. Lol

            • They have some peel your face off, hide for a week or more peels on that website….your skin turns brown and falls off…not what I am looking for at this time…and they are having free shipping right now. I read the description of the high % peel and it was scary, lol, definitely Samantha grade, but hopefully not Rene’ of Mob Wives grade!!

              • Exit4 says:

                I’ll check it out! But I’d be afraid to go full on by myself and end up burning myself beyond help! At least if a doc did I’d have someone to blame! I can take a lot-when I did the laser I kept telling her to turn it up-I can take it!

      • Powell says:

        Yeah. I think Kim does it for her first then Kroy. If you go back to Kim’s first season she wore a raggedy wig. She’s always liked nice clothes, etc. After being on the show a few seasons, becoming recognizable, her being a two hit wonder in the music biz, Kim’s wanted to look the best she can. So I fo think she’s doing it for herself.

    • Overit says:

      Amen HuskerHuny! It’s obvious Kroy loves her the way she is too, which is pretty beautiful and thin without plastic surgery!

    Okay, the IckyVicky/CrooksBrooks lawsuit information. I pulled their latest information.
    The lawyers for IckyVicky and CrooksBrooks have been continually pushing out the dates, but the judge finally put a stop to it and gave them the ultimatums for all of the trial documentation. IckyVicky/CrooksBrooks had used the arguments that their schedules required them to change the dates by six months, it didn’t say this exactly but IckyVicky used the filming schedule as an excuse. Okay here are the dates for their informaton:
    Amending to the lawsuit or adding Parties cutoff was August 1st, 2014
    Discovery Cut off date is November 3rd, 2014
    Expert Disclosures cut off date was September 1st with rebuttal Expert Depositions to be completed no later than October 1st, 2014
    All Depositions will need to be completed no later than December 1st, 2014
    Their first Pre-Trial Joint Motions are due in full no later than January 3rd, 2015.

    • Powell says:

      Oh gosh. So we should know by the next shooting of OC? And since there was no mention of it on the show I guess there are gag orders?

      • T-Rex says:

        I would assume there are gag orders, as part of the lawsuit has to do with “defamation”, and that was originally just against CrooksBrooks, but since IckyVicky decided to not go through with the original settlement she made, they included her on that charge as well. I don’t know this for sure but it looks to me, that IckyVicky was going to settle this whole thing on her end to make it go away, then CrooksBrooks knowing this left him holding the proverbial “bag”, talked her out of it and to fight the lawsuit. UGH of course I am sure IckyVicky is footing those legal fees, lawyers don’t work for free. This is a Civil litigation and that stuff can drag out for years! The only folks that get rich on these deals are the lawyers!!

    This recap is SEWwwwww funny. i’m finishing now….

    😆

    i had to look up “cosplay” – love learning a new word.

    I think the product placement and the SPONSORS are very telling of how maybe the ratings of PR are not what they were 10 yrs ago- when this show was THEBOMB.COM…
    from loreal – ??? down the line…. to these lines.
    Philip B IS a good line and i’m not KNOCKING Mary Kay- but they used to have HUGE sponsors. Especially the department stores that used to sponsor at ‘the wall’. ALDO? Really?

    I wish bravo ratings had a quick analysis of PR. I think ever since it left Bravo it went downwards and the sponsorships leaving say it all.
    Plus i feel like i remember them used to saying ‘prizes totaling at 1/2 a million dollars’ — and now they’re at 300k. I may be wrong, so wrong, but it felt ‘off’ to me in the prizes total.

    Fade OF COURSE would say he wouldn’t be emotional – he’s GERMAN. that made me lol. (i love Germans, want to marry a German, live in Germany, etc.- i’m not knocking them fyi)

    i’m counting on my fingers how many times a NON-NINA approved person EVER wins a challenge or the finale. I’m going to keep counting.

    Amanda is too obvi with the constant neckline like that— and Sandyhia—eeek.
    Also i don’t think her comment about not wanting to reference designers was meant meanly- i think it’s a blunt language crossover- barrier. I still for the life of me don’t understand how this woman has been here for almost 25 years (she said she was 5) has such an accent- and from Alabama ! (big eye emoji) ?!?! I think her literal translation in her mind was “i like to try to be my own designer and not be a reminder of another designer”- but it came out wrong- imo. Or she’s being mean, and if so- that’s fine because they’ve all been such bit*ches to her so there! LOLOL

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Hey Chis! I also have wondered about PR and how the sponsors come and go season to season. I thought that maybe it was about money and the lesser brands would pay it for the exposure, whereas the bigger brands doesn’t need to pay the big bucks because they really don’t need that much exposure. Or maybe they brought in sponsors whose products are more affordable to the masses (meaning me, of course!). I’ve never heard of Aldo or Phillip B.

      I am also sad about Fade leaving. He really was in no man’s land last night and just couldn’t conceive an idea or find his inspiration. His shirts were the best. Maybe he should design a line of those. I think Kini should have won 1st place by himself. Although Sean’s idea was original, the design of the dress was quite simple and not avant garde at all, but putting the dye in it probably made it so.

      Did I hear something about a team challenge next week? I hate those!

      • chismosa says:

        oh i don’t watch the previews so … i figure they are due for another team challenge, i’m surrrre……

        Fade should just come out with his ‘Atheist’ line of clothing & accessories since that’s ALL he had splattered on any time he was on screen. It was kind of funny – i kept seeing a necklace… then a shirt… then on a bag… lol.
        overall i liked him personally.

        I hate how producers really let you know who is leaving because they emphasize the emotional situation. So it’s a giveaway. Very Bravo/ shoddy/ Housewives production-type.

        Oh i meant to say i really liked Alexander’s— the clear one- i thought it looked LOVELY on the runway.
        He keeps winning fan favorite every single week as per the commercials- what? He’s nice and all but to win EVERY single week? huh?

    TRex – your hoopla above about Vicky reminded me i forgot to tell you all that in the wake of the NFL guy who was fired— due to the elevator incident–
    Nightline had TAYLOR ARMSTRONG as a sort of ‘domestic abuse’ authority to discuss it. lordie.

    i never watched BH when she was on but jeesh what a messy gal.
    just fyi!

    Kroy looks so young here. Well, HE WAS actually very young 24 years old when he met Kim.

  14. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Excellent recap, Princess! Kini’s design was so amazing, there should have only been one winner!

    Hi All, I hope everyone is doing good. I’ve been busy and haven’t been watching many of the shows. I’m starting the countdown today. One week from today you can call me Mrs. Boston!!!! 🙂
    Miss you guys. xoxoxoxo

  17. LaineyLainey says:

    Hi Texas tart, finally got the chance to read the DONT BE TARDY recap/blog. Thank you!! That pic of Kroy in the white pants and gray tshirt. I agree, very distracting, child. She is so damn lucky. I wish my dvr had taped it, I would have liked seeing Ariana asking to date. At 12???!!!! She is cute, but too eager to grow up. I saw that video of Kroy at 24…OMG, that’s when Kim met him. Amazing. And now I know why she went on and on about his butt. They are a cute couple. A cute family.

  18. Powell says:

    Good afternoon everyone. Way past morning. It’s 💦💦💦☔☔💦💦💦. No 🌅 insight. But it’s SATURDAY!!! YES!! 🙂 I hope you’re having a great slumber day.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      We’re hosting dominoes tonight…so I’m dusting. Layers of dust. I look like pigpen from Peanuts…a cloud of dust is hovering around me. Cough cough….no I’m not sick, it’s the dust. We got a tiny bit of rain…but we would love MORE!!!

      Question: would it be bad form to serve the guests after dinner mints from Sonic?

      • Exit4 says:

        Nope. Do it like the N-eastern WASPS-you can feed your guests anything as long as it’s in a crystal bowl or dish. Unwrap the sonic mints, pretty bowl and voila! Instant class. 😉
