Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Cast Blogs – Yolanda wants US to behave and Brandi feels sorry for herself

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Guess Who’s Coming to the White Party

by Namaste

 Brandi Opening

Brandi Glanville

Lisa Made Up with Everyone but Me!

We are starting with our good friend, STFU simply because she posted first…Brandi tells us how they write the blogs by addressing what they felt at the time of the episode and not how they are feeling now.  She tells us her visit to Yolo’s place was after filming Celebrity Apprentice.  She then tries to make us believe she was kicked out of her home for no darn good reason.  Right, cause landlords can just kick you out cause they want to have a tea party in their house.

We see Kyle planning her annual White Party, which she claims has become the event of the year in Beverly Hills with everyone trying to get on the guest list. I’m sorry, but it’s not the Vanity Fair Oscar Party if you have invited your chiropractor. I think she is feeling a little too self important.

I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say I agree with her.  However, I do think Brandi is jealous that Kyle and Lisa have made amends.

In Lisa’s interview she says she has done nothing wrong within this entire group of ladies and that she is going to wait for each one of us to reach out to her. This comment is interesting to me, because I feel like she may be in a bit of denial about her parts in our arguments and some of the hurt she has caused throughout our disagreements. Yolanda and Lisa have lunch and very easily move forward. We then see Kyle and Lisa at lunch putting all past issues behind them incredibly easily considering the things that these two have said about one another. I keep remembering back to Lisa saying Mauricio is only friends with people if they are selling their house, tabloid gate between the two of them, making inappropriate jokes about cheating in front of a 5-year-old, and the list goes on forever. Lisa tells Kyle she wants to move forward and put the past behind them, not bring it up ever again, and be loyal forever…and so it is. I’m hoping when I see Lisa at the White Party it will be just as simple and easy for the two of us to move forward.

WOW!  Brandi is still jealous of Lisa’s relationship with Kyle and that Lisa can forgive Kyle and move on.  I think Brandi’s betrayal was harder on Lisa because Lisa had let Brandi become emotionally close to her and she doesn’t do that with a lot of people.

Getting ready for the White Party I’m overly anxious because of my unresolved issues with not just Lisa Vanderpump, but also Adrienne Maloof, whom I was told would be attending as well. I had such a life-changing, positive summer that I made a deal with myself to find resolution with people and stay in as much of a positive head space as possible. 

I am actually surprised that Adrienne would be willing to speak to her at all.  She has ever reason to be nervous around Adrienne.  And shame on her for being mad at everyone for remembering the horrible nasty things Brandi says out of anger.  Brandi needs to learn to bite her tongue and take her own advice and STFU!

Once I finally made my way over to the group to say hello, I realized after Lisa’s cold and childish reception towards me that things were not going to be so easily fixed between the two of us. I decide to try my luck with Adrienne who was much more receptive and kind considering our tumultuous past. I was nervous to speak to her, but after our talk and her agreeance to meet up for coffee, I was relieved. Adrienne looked great, had a hot young man on her arm, and seemed to be in a happy place, so good for her! Lisa and Ken leave the party without saying goodbye to me, and I’m guessing without having a yummy Fatburger, seemingly having made up with everyone but me.

I don’t believe that Lisa treated Brandi “cold and childish”.  I think she was simply polite.  Did you want her to grab you and kiss you on the lips and tell you how very much she wants you to talk about her behind her back while she and Ken pay for your drinks at Sur?  I am surprised Brandi didn’t try to pick-up Adrienne’s date.  Brandi goes on to complain about Lisa’s talking heads.  She then drags Sheana in cause ya know, she knows how to let those sleeping dogs lie.  I hope Lisa reads this and is reminded why she doesn’t need Brandi as a friend…

Lisa Vanderpump Opening

Lisa Vanderpump

Kyle and I have Always had a Bond

The Divine Mrs. Pump welcomes us to the fifth season.  She is surprised that she finds herself here again, but I guess the Benjamins came a callin’ and she couldn’t help but say YES!  She tells us the opening of Pump was demanding, but enjoyed her time away from the group to recoup and gather her thoughts…and hopefully some delicious one-liners!  She addresses her “staged” make-up with Kyle and why she did not tell Ken…cause she knew he would discourage it.

Kyle and I have always had a bond and many have tried to sever that, trying to divide and conquer. We have had a multitude of shenanigans and giggles late into the night, always sparring and enjoying each other’s company, but things have sometimes been more complicated and often resulted in many misunderstandings.

I kinda love these two together.  It is like Lucy and Ethel and they are just fun to watch banter.  I don’t like when they are mad at each other.

She had invited us to her yearly White Party, so I accepted, only too well aware that the possibility of encountering Miss Glanville and her minions was rather likely, but never mind. I knew this was an inevitable situation and one I was prepared to deal with, but in the most dismissive way I could, without being offensive.To acknowledge her was all I was willing to offer, really. The relationship with her had been an experience that I could never forget and would never comprehend, so to be civil in a group setting was all I could muster.

I thought it was a polite greeting from Lisa.  I really would have been so surprised had she greeted her with more than just a polite hello.

Yolanda and I had lunch a few days prior. Kim had called me, and I had spoken to her after so many months had passed, and I felt that all were eager to cleanse ourselves of the negativity and start afresh. If only we could rewrite history, pull the pages from the book that had ended so horribly, I am sure we would, but life isn’t that generous. We have to live with our choices and enter into the next chapter forewarned and forearmed.

I wonder if Yolanda brought her some fresh lemonade.  I wonder if Yolanda actually ate lunch.  I wonder if Kim talked about turtles and complained about Lisa not attending the grad party.  I wonder if Kimberly ever sent Lisa and Ken a thank you note.  I am filled with unanswerable questions.

Lisa tells us this is an exciting ride.  She promises it will be complicated, but filled with laughter and a rebirth of old friendships.  Lisa seems to like the new cast members.  She thanks us for our support (mine specifically cause I know we would be BFF…if only)  As always…


Yolanda Foster

Fasten Your Seatbelts

Yolanda claims to be so excited to be back with us.  Malibu is quiet and she misses her girls.  Gigi is in NYC with Tim Ford and Bella is an IMG model.  Anwar is in high school and still at home.  King David is of course doing great and has made a Christmas album.  She seems to still be battling Lyme disease.  She is only functioning at a 60-70% so I guess we are supposed to cut her some slack.  She is currently at a clinic in Seoul, Korea as she writes this blog.

After 50 years of trials and errors, I know now that most of the time people don’t change and when someone shows you who they are to believe them! I think that the most honorable people are not those who never make mistakes, but those who admit to them when they do. We learn from our mistakes and we should try our best to “right” the “wrongs” we’ve made.

Wow, Yolanda is so very profound.  I wish I could have her on my shoulder to whisper to me how to make good choices…

I am excited for you guys to meet our new friends Lisa R. And Eileen, both really great authentic women that are adding a very much needed new flavor to our ensemble.

Yeah, she says that now, but I am sure the shit is gonna hit the fan later in this season and it isn’t gonna be pretty.

I am excited to be blogging with and for you over the next couple of months. I love and appreciate the time you take to share your opinions, even though we might not always agree, I respect your freedom of speech and respect this blogging process.


I am asking in advance to please keep things classy because the most powerful debates are spoken in a clear and respectful manner. All seven of us are mommies of children that are existing in the social media world, so please be sensitive to the power of your thoughts and words.

I promise to be respectful if you promise not to be pompous.  Cool?  She tells us to fasten our seat belts because while this journey is fun, it is a bumpy and crazy ride.  She promises it’s gonna be good.  I will hold her to it.

Lisa Rinna Opening

Lisa Rinna

Lisa’s First Impression of the Ladies

Before I start I must say, I know Lisa (Billie) from Days of Our Lives and later watched her on Celebrity Apprentice.  On days, she had that short shaggy hair and beautiful full lips.  Then a plastic surgeon got ahold of her and well, it went a little wonky.  I forgive her cause she got the lip implants removed a few years ago, but her lips never went back to normal….anyhoo, Lisa is excited to be on the show.  We shall see how long that lasts.  She calls Kyle’s party “lavish” and was pleased to see Camille, Taylor and Adrienne.  Was she drunk?

Speaking of the White Party, I have to absolutely credit my friend Kyle for always putting on such a phenomenal bash. I have been to every single one of her White Parties, and year after year, she outdoes herself. Wait. Let me rephrase that: Year after year, Kyle and her boobs outdo themselves! I mean, come on. Did you see how amazing they looked? And in that insanely gorgeous dress, too! But on a more serious note, I have known Kyle for 10 years now and am so happy that we have gone from friends who chat in the grocery store to dear friends that can count on one another.

Wow, this is a whole new level of kissing ass that we have not seen.  I hope they remain friends at the close of the season.  Lisa was introduced to Kim through Kyle and she got to know Kim more on WWHL.  She calls Kim her “little turtle friend”.  Seems as though Kim and Ramona might have a lot in common.

Would you believe that Yolanda and I have known one another for 25 years?! From then until now, Yolanda has always been such a class act and radiates a certain love and light that is simply breathtaking. Like I mentioned on tonight’s episode, she can walk into a room and own it. I admire her style very much and respect what a wonderful wife and mother she is.

And now we come to the portion where we kiss Yolo’s caboose.  Lisa is really spreading the wealth.

And Lisa. My darling friend, Lisa. I have also known her for upwards of 25 years. We first met at a bridal shower where we hit it off instantly. We lost touch for quite some time when she went back to Europe but had the good fortune to reconnect when they opened SUR. I get such a kick out of Lisa and her sparkling (and very naughty!) personality and absolutely adore her and Ken. But yes, I am absolutely with you Lisa, while I love you two to pieces, I’m not quite up for the swinging thing to happen, either!

And here would be the point where we kiss Mrs. Vanderpump’s hiney.  I have a feeling she won’t be kissing Brandi’s.  Just a little inkling I have.

Unfortunately, I was only at this year’s White Party for about an hour before Harry and I had to leave for the Mad Men series wrap party, so I didn’t get to mingle with Brandi or participate in the dance party, but there’s plenty more fun still to come…

So that explains it.  She had to go to a VERY IMPORTANT party (I am a Mad Men fan so I gotta say, that party would have been my first choice and I would have sent Kyle my regrets.  I mean you can have a FatBurger anytime, right?)  Lisa says she was really excited for us to meet her family.  I have to say, they kinda seem very normal.  The girls came off as sweet and loving.  Harry was playful and even the “nanny” or “housekeeper” at the table seemed to be part of their family.  I think it is kinda cute that Lisa refers to Harry (she will now refer to him as HH) as King of the House.  Let’s hope these two don’t fall for the HW Divorce Curse that so many before them have.

Kyle Opening

Kyle Richards

Brandi was Looking for Trouble

Kyle welcomes us back for the 5th season.  She claims this will be “an exciting, fun-filled season with all the craziness that comes with life’s ups and downs.”  Funny, I don’t ever have to go through my closet for a full white wardrobe to wear to a party.  I guess I can’t relate to their “Beverly Hills Problems.”  Kyle also reminds us how the ladies are supposed to write the blogs as though they are still “in the moment”.  She promises to do her best to be objective.  Oh Kyle, please don’t!  That wouldn’t be any fun!

We start out this first episode with the planning of the White Party. This has become a tradition for our family. We didn’t do the White Party last year, because we had Sophia’s bat mitzvah around the same time we usually do the White Party. 

I do remember wondering where the White Party was last year since I always “attend” and thought I had misplaced my invite.  Good to know I was wasn’t overlooked.

In the episode I said it was the party of the year that everyone wants to come to. Certainly there are bigger, more glamorous parties than my White Party. I meant compared to what the party used to be and that people in town know it’s in June and will start asking about it, as well as asking to bring friends. I think people look forward to it, because it feels like summer is finally here. 

I know Brandi took a stab at Kyle for this statement, but for Kyle’s circle of friends, this might very well be “the party to kick off the summer”.  Hell, I will problem end up at an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party sometime soon, but I have never been invited to a White Party, but if I was, I am sure I would drop a Fat Burger on my gown the moment I took a bite.

It was funny to see Yolanda discovering the guy who had set up shop on her property. Too funny. It was sweet that she let him stay and wished him success. Yolanda and I are both preparing for our girls to leave for college soon, and I am terrified. 

I was actually pleasantly surprised at Yolanda’s reaction to this guy on her property.  Should would have been within her rights to ask him to leave and call the PoPo.  I thought she was very gracious and polite to the “squatter”.

Lisa and I picked up where we left off last year. I reached out to Lisa and asked her to meet with me. Lisa and I had always been close. In the past couple of years, we have had our moments and a lot of obstacles to work through. However, life is too short, and I wanted to talk it out and be able to start from scratch. I missed the days of us just laughing and having fun. I wanted to get to a strong enough place where we wouldn’t go backwards again or let outside negativity influence our friendship. I think that in order to do that you have to have these conversations. Brushing it under the carpet and just “moving on” is always a temporary solution. 

I gotta say, I love these two when they are friends.  They are playful and I can relate.  They take jabs at each other and each can give as good as they get.  I think sometimes Kyle becomes sensitive and the Lisa’s jabs seem cruel.  I am glad they are friends, but know the fairytale never lasts.

I am so happy to have Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson join us this season. I’ve known Lisa Rinna for years, and it’s fun to have her be a part of this. Eileen and I met during a guest spot I did on Days Of Our Lives. I think you will enjoy getting to know both of these great women.

It was great seeing Lisa R. with her kids and Harry. There’s nothing I love more than seeing a home filled with love and happy chaos. Lisa was a lot more calm than I would have been if Mauricio brought in a baby rattlesnake. I found myself wanting to yell. “The babies are the most poisonous, Harry!” Lisa and I only live a few minutes apart, and we also find scary little visitors in our yard! 


I am excited to see how these B-list celebrities blend in with the crew.  I could see Kim being jealous that these two ladies still have careers well into their 40s.


It’s finally time for the White Party. I was excited to have everyone in our home and kick off summer. It was so nice to have Adrienne, Camille, and Taylor there. Everyone was in a great mood and ready to have fun. Although some of the women weren’t on the best of terms, it seemed everyone was willing to put it aside for the night. 

It was nice to see all the ladies there…but where was Dana?  What about Marisa?  I was so glad we didn’t have to see Faye and her fake tan.  Also nice to hear Camille say she and the “psychic” had a falling out.  I hope she doesn’t put a hex on Camille.

Brandi came in and seemed to be uncomfortable and looking for trouble from the get go. She was invited like everyone else and had no reason to feel unwelcome or that the women were “mean girls.” I think considering everything that has happened, everyone was being nice and just trying to enjoy their night. 

I gotta agree with Kyle here.  Brandi felt uncomfortable because she felt guilty for all the horrible things she had said about these ladies.  Unfortunately, instead of changing her behavior she reacts like a 7th grader.  I fear she will never grow up.

I am glad that Brandi and Adrienne are planning to meet up and talk. This is something that should have happened a long time ago. 

I hope Adrienne reads Brandi the riot act.  I know it was never “disclosed” but we can all assume that Brandi told everyone that Adrienne used a surrogate to carry her twins.  Who the F cares?  Half of Beverly Hills uses surrogates.  I realize Adrienne maybe talked as thought she “carried” the twins, but who really cares?  I did actually “carry” my twins and let me tell you, if I could have had a surrogate do it for me, I would have!  I was on bedrest for 13 weeks!  I lost 18 pounds from all-day-sickness.  I had an allergic reaction to an anti-nausea medication and got lock-jaw.  A surrogate would have been God-send!

Kyle thanks us all for tuning in and she looks forward to sharing her life with us!  Yeah right, we will check back in a few weeks and see how you are feeling about that!

    This still cracks me up

    • TexasTart says:

      🙄 and that the very topic of one of her talking heads! #liarliarpantsonfire

      • jezzibel says:

        wasn’t she the one that light out after LV, when LV thought they were cool, and wasn’t aware they were having a rift in their friendship??Brandi is an idiot, her problems with LV were childish and one sided.
        What exactly should LV acknowledge :She’s employed Scheana longer than she has known Brandi and didn’t fire her because of Brandi’s ex’s wandering johnson(I’m pretty sure you can get sued for wrongful dismissal) .
        What Brandi really wants is Schena tarred, feathered, and run out of town, and she is expecting Lisa to hold the tar bucket. It comes down to the fact that she can’t and won’t move on from her ex, she wants Scheana to suffer embarrassment and to be unhappy as she is unhappy, instead Schena is getting married, is happy, popular, employed and on TV and Brandi is really angry that Lisa isn’t making Schena suffer and in fact has let Schena go from strength to strength, while Brandi goes from fail to fail(she can’t go after Schena herself and risk Schena becoming even more popular,likeable and the victim of Brandi’s insane wrath).

        • Powell says:

          Hey Jezzibel. You’re so right sista. And the kick is Scheana didn’t Break up their marriage. Eddie didn’t leave Brandi for Scheana. Scheana wasn’t the 1st or last. Brandi doesn’t try to hurt the 1st or the last. Scheana is an easy target. What Lisa needs to continue to do is not only not fire Scheana but continue to find more ways to highlight/promote Scheana. And every party she has Scheana needs to be there.

          • VV™ says:

            Brandi agreed to be filmed with Scheanna, talked about that it was all good with her on TH and WWHL. She said she saw Scheana as victim of Eddie. Something happened, after she made peace with Scheanna that she did an 180 degree change. I think somebody was chirping in her ear.

              • mrs peabody says:

                yep, yo got in her ear and started manipulating her. She’s so easy to. Another thing is at the time Scheana was slipping with her husband (who by the way did not mention he was married to her) Lisa did not even know Brandi. I guess by Brandi’s thinking Lisa should have fired Scheanna for the affair even though she had no clue who Brandi was at the time and I doubt knew anything about Scheanna’s love life with some class c actor.

        • VV™ says:

          What Brandi really wants is Schena tarred, feathered, and run out of town, and she is expecting Lisa to hold the tar bucket.

          Exactly 👆

        • Exit4 says:

          Schena grew up and moved on. Brandi didn’t. Not for nothing, but even though Schena knew he was married and that’s not right, I’m sure she was led to believe by Eddie that his marriage was ending/over. The mistress usually gets a picture that may not be true-and they’re blind enough to believe it.

          • Powell says:

            Yeah I can imagine him filling her head w/nothing but lies about his marriage. Scheana said she didn’t know he was married at first which I don’t believe. You’re in Hollywood. You know he’s an actor you’re gonna investigate. But if you believe her once she found out she should’ve gotten out if it even if he fed her a bunch of lies. He’s married and until he’s not don’t be w/him.

  4. Veena (NMD) says:

    So does anyone else think it’s funny that Yolanda wants us to be respectful when her BFF went on national TV and talked about her ex husband’s opinion of another woman’s private bits? I personally hate those general reprimands to behave. If you’ve got a specific problem with someone, address it with them – don’t make vague demands for people to behave respectfully.

  5. TexasTart says:

    Namaste – I’m so glad you’re blogging, I mean someone has to deal with all of the unanswered questions! The pics from the opening sequence are a really nice touch. I love the Lucy and Ethel reference and when these two get along, it is fun. Maybe we’ll find STFU later in Secrets Revealed trolling after A’s date! I think Yo was totally surprised someone was on her property… although it probably happens often and she doesn’t know because so high on her throne…uh, I mean because the lay of the land…anyhow she was only nice because the camera was on her!

    What a rough go of it carrying your twins. Wowza. Thanks for letting us know what the diamond holders think as they watched…no doubt Kyle will have to reevaluate soon.

  6. ladebra says:

    We were just talking about Bill on School House Rock!!

  7. Rebecca wishes dragons would appear and roast every Housewife who says or does something stupid. says:

    Lets face it, Adrienne will let Brandi off because she needs to repair her image in the business world for signing up for this harpie fest. I am still skeptical of “surrogacy” being the whole issue because of how Paul reacted to the damage done to “Adrienne’s family.” I have a feeling there were egg donors as well and Adrienne can’t afford any more trouble over this.

    • not THAT Jill says:

      I always thought it was more than the surrogacy that had Paul and Adrienne so upset-I think it would horrible for someone to “out” that secret but their reaction made me think Brandi said something much worse-how can you say “that’s a big fat lawsuit” over something like that? If it’s true there isn’t anything to sue over so I think it was something else-Kyle even said in one episode “it’s not about the surrogacy”-I always felt it was something much more damaging.

  8. VV™ says:

    White Part was filmed in June. Coachella Festival was 2 months earlier (April). Lisa Rinna started filming very early then. Her kids were still in school. Bravo crapy editing and manipulations of TL. I don’t know I’m gonna have the patience to reconstruct the TL this year. I will point at the inconsistencies.

  11. TexasTart says:

    Name dropping without pics! :-/

    • TexasTart says:

      I forget how MUCH she tweets…this is gonna be a chore, I tell ya’

    • VV™ says:

      She might wear her welcome doing stuff like that. THAT tweet got on my nerve.

      • not THAT Jill says:

        She’s always tweeted like this-her Instagram is full of stuff like this-I kind of like that she is doing what she’s always done-she never cared that people made fun of her tweets! If she keeps that attitude she just might survive her first season!!

        • TexasTart says:


          • VV™ says:

            Yolanda is also a name dropper and she got criticized a lot here for doing it.
            I’m not Yofo fan. We can make the same argument that she’s always done it because she started tweeting after she got cast on the show.

            FOR THE RECORD: In case you’re a new reader. I can’t stant Yolanda and her superiority complex.

        • VV™ says:

          Good for her if she always did and not changing. Major turn off for “me”.

          • TexasTart says:

            VV no likey Lisa R already?! Pretty sure that will not change either, ha!

            • VV™ says:

              I like her. I said she was a good addition. I also observe behavior on social media. I don’t dislike her YET. LOL

              • not THAT Jill says:

                If you haven’t been following her on social media before she became a HW I think you will be very annoyed by her excessive tweeting/instagam -she goes over board some days-I find her to be amusing but people are always complaining about her tweeting too much-she loves posting pictures of herself!

  12. TexasTart says:

    …more self promotion..just another day, lol

  13. TexasTart says:

  14. Powell says:

    Good afternoon everyone. I hope you’ve had a great weekend. Did anyone see this?

  15. Veena (NMD) says:

    Oh man, Leann just slammed Brandi’s son Mason in an interview. What the hell is wrong with her?

    “I was super-driven as a kid. Even though I was on the road a lot, the teachers would give me homework and I would get it all done. I look at my 11-year-old stepson Mason, and I’m like, ‘I signed a record deal when I was your age. You’re still fumbling with tying your shoelaces.’

    • Exit4 says:

      I honestly get what she’s saying. I see it all the time-kids are so much more helpless and unable to do what we did because they’re so monitored and scheduled. My seven year old dresses himself, washes his face, brushes his teeth and gets his own breakfast in the mornings. People are SHOCKED and even a little horrified by this. Why don’t I help him? He’s too young! I let him go outside by himself and you’d think I have him selling crack on the corner. She’s going to get killed for saying this-but she’s got a point.

      • not THAT Jill says:

        I totally get what she is saying and really it’s no worse than what Brandi has said about her kids-they sleep with her one wets the bed etc. I think if this is read in the context intended there is really nothing so horrible about it.

      • Veena (NMD) says:

        I think she was wrong on all levels. She was a savant – he’s a normal kid. If she wants to point out how kids are sheltered today – don’t use him as an example. In your example, you didn’t name another kid so that the world could see that he/she can barely tie their shoelaces at 11. It’s just wrong to single him out like that.

        • not THAT Jill says:

          I Think it was just a way to show the difference between her childhood and his-in my mind I don’t see it as a way to make the kid look stupid-it’s just a comparison between their lives. She’s getting her ass kicked all over twitter for mentioning his name -by the same people who defended Brandi for calling her kid and dick and an asshole.

          • Exit4 says:

            I remember I thought it was gross when she mentioned the kid getting felt up or whatever it was-but dick and asshole didn’t bug me too much. Since our kids have been referred to as the “little effers” and little jerks more then once. Obviously, were not serious-it’s all jest, but the Brandi bunch thinks it’s ok for her to say whatever she wants-but no one else can. Even when it’s harmless.

        • Exit4 says:

          That’s the thing though too-you shouldn’t be afraid to make a comparison. It’s being looked at as a slam and it’s just saying how different their lives are. People are afraid to say anything critical to or about their kids because it’ll hurt their feelings or “damage” them. Which is exactly why most of them are so helpless. You don’t need to be mean to your kids-but you should be able to point out to them-and others-small things, like tying shoes, without being shamed and made to feel like you’re a bad parent or step parent.

          • not THAT Jill says:

            Leann gets her ass handed to her for mentioning anything about those kids so this is going to be a BIG GIANT DEAL for a long time!!

            • Exit4 says:

              The best part is the one who probably cares the least-is the kid! The amount of energy and anger the Brandi/leann crowd puts into the lives of people they don’t know is sad. A lot of them are moms-what are their kids doing while mom tweets all day about someone else’s parenting?

            • Laineylainey says:


          • Powell says:

            But she pointed it out in the media. WRONG!

          • PJ says:

            Oh my goodness this is wrong on so many levels and comparisons are horrible! I can’t believe anyone would defend this. Just anyone please ask your own kids how they feel about being compared to anyone else. Brandi being wrong about what she says does not make this right.

      • Powell says:

        I get it too but can it just be private? Brandi says one of them pees in the bed, she calls them effs, Bs or whatever curse word she uses and now step mom puts out the kid isn’t focused. All of this for public consumption. They don’t think about the kids. If they’re so “her boys” then that says a lot about her influence and guidance too. Why isn’t she helping him?

      This comment is so wrong on so many levels.

        Read the whole article. As a child, she was the breadwinner for the family. She had to go to work. By comparison, Mason gets to be a kid. It’s the “life was so much easier” for them than her. Yeah, I used to have to walk uphill in the show to take the schoolbus. She has to be thankful the big gamble paid off for her.

        • VV™ says:

          I read it in context. She could’ve generalized. Instead, she chose to compare herself with her step son. Not cool!
          It’s a put down on Mason and not a rear one. She has a talent that not many have. That’s how I see it.

          • not THAT Jill says:

            I just think it was a comparison to her childhood-it was stupid of her to mention her step-son b/c according to twitter she doesn’t have the right to ever mention those kids. She doesn’t always think about what the public will take away from her words-she for sure needs to work on that-however I still find the remark to be less about Mason and more about her saying she was so fab as an 11 year old-that makes her a bit obnoxious.

    • Powell says:

      Sighhhhh. Eddie’s the idiot. Between Leanne and Brandi he’s got some great mothers for his boys.

    Again a tweet with Dorinda

  17. I want to make sure Chismosa sees this….I woke up this morning and checked and ICE-T favorited another one of my tweets…..we are tight, me and Ice!!

    More coffee and then read the blog, thank you Namaste for writing it!!

    I think Kathy Griffin taking over for Joan Rivers at Fashion Police is a big mistake. People will tune in at first out of curiosity but What authority does KG has on fashion? She dresses like crap!

  19. The whole thing with Leanne will be blown up beyond measure and the only thing IPPHO, they are not her kids….nobody talks smack about MY kids….I can call them whatever I want but WOE be it to the person that says ANYTHING about them….I don’t care how much time she spends with them…… My PBB was dressing herself at 2, taught herself to read at 3 and I was still dressing my son at 10 and he finally tied his own damn shoes at 18……Leanne needs to STFU about Brandi’s kids, IPPHO. She said this out loud in an interview, not to her friends over drinks…..those poor boys, I can’t imagine the shit they get at school…..that is all…

    • not THAT Jill says:

      She really didn’t “talk smack” about the kid-she made a comparison-if it were anyone else but Leann this wouldn’t even be an issue -it wouldn’t have made the article and it wouldn’t be making the rounds on twitter.

      • Veena (NMD) says:

        I’m not sure agree. If Teresa had said this about Jaq’s son CJ, or if Melissa had said this about Milania, people would go crazy. I don’t think the average 11 year old is barely able to tie his own shoelaces.

        • not THAT Jill says:

          If it was said in a mean and slamming manner I would agree but she’s not saying the kid is stupid or a moron-in relation to what she’s talking about I personally do not find it to be an insult. If she randomly tweeted that her step-son didn’t know how to tie his shoes at 11 years old I would says she’s a bitch-but that’s not the case.

        • Laineylainey says:

          DONT EVEN GO THERE WITH MILANIA!!!! Milania can do no wrong.

      • Maybe…or she can just stfu, I am sensitive to the shoe tying, lol!! We even called Grandma, it was too funny.. I am split on these bitches I can see both sides and I don’t care about either one….they are both crazy and Eddie is no prize. #ifeelsorryforthechildren

        • not THAT Jill says:

          My kids are sucky at tying shoes-I’m a lefty and tie my laces in such a strange way I could never teach them how to do right-Kevin has spent 5 years trying to undo my teaching-they both love boots b/c no tying is involved!!

    This is how “normal” moms talk about their kids in public

  21. plainviewsue says:

    Fab recap of the blogs. And I have to agree with the above posters. Leann will take a lot of crap for that remark & if I was Brandi, I wouldn’t appreciate it. Damn Leann. Don’t make me side with Brandi!! Yes, Brandi has said and tweeted stuff about her kids, which I don’t agree with at all. But they are her kids. Maybe Brandi will rise above it……………….who am I kidding????

    I think the reason Kyle and Lisa are able to get past this and have a good chance of being friends again is because they were good friends for a very long time, almost sisters and sisters do fight and make up as if nothing happened. Lisa and Brandi on the other hand do not have that history, they’ve only known each other for the last couple of years and did not have that type of a friendship that can help them survive this. I think the reason Kyle hurt Lisa was because of that friendship/sister bond they had. With Brandi that wasn’t there, I think the reason Lisa was so hurt was because she had tried to help Brandi and Brandi bit the hand that fed her so to speak. I think that relationship will never be repaired. I think Lisa will do as she says, be polite and that is as far as it will ever go and I don’t blame her I’d do the exact same thing and I’d do it every time I had to have contact with her. I thought she treated her fine at the white party, she greeted her and dismissed her, I would have done the same thing and I would have done it with Kim and Yolo too. I would not have with Kyle given their past. I would like to see them on better terms and friends again in the future. I know with Yolo it’s difficult because of Mohammend but I think she can present her reasons to him and he’d be fine with her feelings toward Queen David.
