Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Season 5 Episode 4

 by Namaste

Kim Richards

The Call No Parent wants to Get.

Kim starts by telling us Brooke’s wedding was right around the corner.  She wanted Kyle to see the dress, but knows her sister is a germophobe and she can’t tell her the house is like a petri dish of virus.  Kim’s dresses were very pretty, but I would have been pissed being in that house with everyone sick and leaving for a vacation!

How cute are Ken and Lisa V. taking Giggy shopping? I just loved it! The whole thing was so cute. I completely understand how Lisa V. and Ken feel as if Giggy is now their child, too. I, too, am so excited at the thought of being a grandmother! Shhh! I don’t want to put any pressure on people before they are ready! I’m just saying, I’m ready to be a GrandMa!

Kim dress

Wow.  No pressure  Just asking my daughter to produce a grandkid asap on a network’s website.

It was so exciting to see Brandi get her new car! I just loved to see her with such pride and joy! Really, I saw a lot if gratitude!

Um, no.  I saw no gratitude.  I saw a woman who is so concerned about her “image” that she is willing to waste 10s of 1000s of dollars to have a car.  I think it is just plain stupidity.  And delusional.  Your kids (allegedly) don’t have a college fund!

It was nice to see Eileen with her family. All those boys. It looks like she really has a lot fun. I know she loves her kids a lot. I have known her husband Vincent and his family since I was a little girl. Vincent’s brother actually taught me how to play tennis for a guest spot I did on the TV show Magnum PI. It was fun to watch Eileen and Vincent play tennis. Those Van Pattens are really something on the court!

Holy crap on toast!  I just realized that Vincent is Dick Van Patten’s son!  I wonder if he has ever played tennis against Mario Singer???

Wow! Seeing Kyle, Maurice, and all the kids arrive in Mallorca and that amazing yacht…All I’m saying is that I’m definitely heading there next! So gorgeous. How beautiful is my niece Alexia?! I loved watching her go over her list for college. I still can’t believe Kimberly is already in her second year already! It was awesome to see Yolanda and Kyle in the “bagels!” LOL, how cute is our Yo!? It was nice to see Kyle and Yolanda getting to spend some one-on-one time and give Yolanda a chance to open up about some very sensitive and painful things going on in her life. Spain is so beautiful, and I enjoyed getting a chance to see some of it while they were sightseeing.

The boat was beautiful.  The sight-seeing was freaking awesome.  I love when the housewives travel and we get to see some different places…places I will prob never see or maybe I can add them to my bucket list.  (#1 is to have tea in Lisa V.’s closet!)

It was so nice to see everyone having fun on the boat until Yolanda got her phone call. The kind of phone call that a parent never wants to get! As parents, we do everything we can to teach our children what’s right and wrong. We prepare them for the dangers of the world and pray every day that they will hear us. We spend most of ourlives loving them and telling them over and over again the same thing: Please don’t speed, don’t drink and drive, don’t walk alone at night, and so many more! We can only hope and pray that they will grasp the importance of our words. They are children, as we once were, and they make mistakes as we all have. Sometimes, though, they must learn the hard way and hopefully not harm themselves or others in the process. As they grow in to young men and women, we see the beautiful young people that we have had the opportunity to be part of their journey and growth along the way. That’s where I say…thank you, God!

This actually fell into “a real moment”.  A lot of stuff on these shows is “softly scripted” and produced.  Bella’s mistake was BIG and Yolanda’s reaction was real.  I am so glad she wasn’t ranting and blaming.  She put responsibility squarely on her kid and as a mom, she questioned how she raised her.  Very normal.  I hope Bella learned something…

 

Lisa Rinna

My Heart Ached for Yolanda

Before really diving in and talking about tonight’s episode, can we please just take a minute to give a shout out to all of the amazing bodies that we got to see in bathing suits this week? Yolanda, Kyle, Eileen…Wow! Just wow! You ladies and your bodies are looking more and more incredible as each year passes.

Begrudingly, I will agree.  I HATE THEM!  Moving on…

Again, I am speechless from the beauty, and we all know it takes a lot to shut me up! Considering I have never vacationed on a yacht, let alone in Spain, and after watching Yolanda and Kyle whoop it up in the Mediterranean on such a sexy and exotic trip, I now know what to add to my ever-growing bucket list! It really was so much fun to watch the girls enjoying themselves, and I don’t think Yolanda could have been any funnier with her backwards “bagel” riding and wearing her “wedgies.” So hilarious!

Their experience was fun to watch!  They enjoyed each other (even considering Yolanda’s patronizing about getting to know Kyle as a “human being”.  I am not sure how she knew her before the trip.)

Lisa talks about how much fun (again that word!) she has with Lisa V.  I think they enjoy each other cause they don’t take everything the other says seriously and I imagine if they ever get offended, they just say, “WTF did you say that for?” and move along.  Lisa tells us that she and Miss V. have effortless bond.  I love that!  I have friends that are just so “easy” to be around.  I don’t have to worry and obsess about saying something ridiculous.  Lisa is excited and honored to be invited to Palm Springs to celebrate with Miss V.

Lisa R

Of course, this leads me to celebrate in Brandi’s successes this week, as well. How sweet was it to see her so excited to get her new car?! What an accomplishment to be a two time New York Times Bestselling Author and to brand herself through her podcast, all while being a single mom to two boys. It makes me happy to see her so happy, and I absolutely gotta respect her hustle as well. Kudos to you, Brandi!

Um, yeah, just refer to my previous comments on this.

As much as I wish motherhood was all smiles, hugs, and warm and fuzzies, unfortunately it’s not, and boy did my heart ache as we watched Yolanda learn of Bella’s DUI. I can’t even begin to imagine how terrified, trapped, and panicked she must have felt learning this news while being in another country. How incredibly heartbreaking this must have been for her. Yolanda, Kyle, and I all have teenage daughters, so the bond we share when we go through these hard times with our girls is a tight one, and I’m grateful that Kyle could be there with Yolanda when she got the call. Yolanda always has been and continues to be such a fantastic mom. My heart goes out to her.

I am glad there is no judging Yolanda from the ladies.  As a mom of teenagers myself, I will not judge.  Kids are dumb.  So very very dumb.  And they believe they are invincible.  Several years ago, 5 high school kids in our community were out joy riding the night before graduation.  They jumped a set of rail road tracks and 4 of them were killed.  I cannot imagine what these parents went through.  Parents can only hope and pray that our kids make the right decisions, but also learn from another’s mistake.  Lisa tells us to keep shopping, wrapping and enjoying everything during this holiday season!

 

Eileen Davidson

Yeah, Vincent and I Bicker Sometimes

Eileen and Vince

Has no one learned on these shows?  The “bickering” is cute the first few episodes until we realize it isn’t really bickering.  I remember watching Jon and Kate Plus 8 and kinda laughing at the way she rode him.  Now, its kinda sad.  Adrienne and Paul.  Bethenny and Jason.  Vicki and Don.  Eileen is very busy getting ready for Christmas.  She does her own shopping.  WOW.  She says shopping with boys is not like shopping with girls.  I agree.  Boys are just younger versions of men and are just bored by the whole experience unless there is something in it for them and even then, they just want their item(s) and then they want to leave.

How exciting for Kim to have her daughter getting married! I am so far away from that. At least I think/hope I am. LOL.

I hope we get to see the wedding.  Looks like from the previews we do.

Mallorca looks truly amazing, and Kyle and Yolanda do, too! The news about Bella was intense and I’m sure devastating for Yo and her family. We do the best we can as parents, but our kids will make their mistakes and hopefully learn from them and choose more wisely next time. I understand how that is, having teenagers and a tween myself. Scary stuff. It seems Bella has indeed risen above the circumstances and is a great girl.

Very nice of Eileen to show support for Yolanda.  These ladies are just “too nice” early in the season.

OMG! What am I wearing at our kids pool party?! It looks more like The Beverly Hillbillies than The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills! Those kids scramble my brains and my fashion choices! Speaking of which, those adorable girls are Jesse’s cousins, Sophie, Maddie, Veronica, and Audrey, and my niece Devon. We adore them and we see them as often as possible. And of course our Wheaten, Charlotte (from Dog Whisperer fame).

I thought her clothing choice was nice, but who am I to judge?

The tennis extravaganza was hilarious! I love that Vinny was a professional tennis player. He’s actually taught me a lot. Not to mention we always win at playing doubles. When in doubt and we’re down a bit, I look to him and say, “Do something!” A couple great shots later, and we’ve won! The only bad thing about him being so good? He will always beat me. Always. Even if he’s sick as a dog and exhausted and crawling around the court. He will prevail.

I would never play a sport with someone who was a “Pro”.  I hate losing.  I hate it so much that I usually will not participate in something because if I lose, it will ruin my day.  Yes, I need therapy.

Yeah, Vincent and I bicker sometimes. We’ve been married for almost 12 years, and we sometimes bug the crap out of each other! Especially when both of us are in between projects and we’re at home. All the time. Every day. For weeks.You get my drift. We do have to be careful not to let it get out of control. We’re both smart-asses, and sometimes we can go too far. But I adore my husband. He makes me laugh and we have a lot of fun together. I am so proud of his many accomplishments. He’s truly a remarkable human being. Great husband. Great father. Great man.

Yes, Eileen, couples bicker, but when you put it on national TV for others to enjoy it ends up going to another level.  You will be judged for every dirty look, cross word or lack of affection.  Reality TV is not good for a marriage.  Be afraid.  Be very afraid.  Until next week…

 

Lisa Vanderpump

A Scare can be the Ultimate Lesson

Lisa V

Lisa reminds us all of her dog obsession.  I had no idea she had 7!  We don’t get to see all of them.

Now if I could get my hands on that dolly, Portia, it might ease the pressure on Giggy!

Can you all imagine what kinda of Grandma Lisa will be?  OMG!  Christmas will be insane and I am jealous already.

Watching Kyle charter the boat brought so many memories flooding back. We had a yacht for years when we lived in France, and it is a hole in the water in which you pour money into. Wonderful moments, though, were had by all over the years, but chartering is definitely the way to go!

I can say, if I ever win the lotto, I am chartering a boat!  After watching Below Deck and this, I am sold…now, if only I bought lottery tickets.

Seeing Yolanda receive the news of Bella’s DUI was heart rendering really. We as parents always feel the responsibility of our children’s actions, but at some point they have to be held accountable, and if nobody was hurt, I am a believer that sometimes a scare can be the ultimate lesson that is necessary to steer them in the right direction.Then as we witness the flashbacks to Bella reassuring her mother all would be well in her absence, it is something I am sure many mothers and daughters have experienced, but few have the humbling scenario captured by cameras for all to witness! I know all three children to be sweet, kind, intelligent individuals that are a credit to the family, and this unfortunate incident should be documented as just that. We live and learn from our mistakes, and I’m thankful the cost wasn’t too high.

Again, pleased to see all the housewives avoiding judgement.  I hope Bella and her friends learned a valuable lesson from this incident.

So Lisa R. and I have lunch. I was emphatic that my experience with the confines of this journey should not influence her opinion of the other women, the same as when Yolanda joined the group. It would be easy to cast a negative light and search for an ally, but I was secure in the fact that Lisa knew me well enough to be objective of any situation that might transpire.

I kinda like that.  Let the new person figure out who they do and do not like by themselves.  I know my opinions of people are clouded by other’s.

I believe that is what friendship should be: a secure place where you don’t put demands on somebody. One of the most important things in a friendship is loyalty, also the way that other person makes you feel…And LR makes me feel really good, so that is why I invited her to my special event, because I knew I would have her utmost support.

The hard part of these shows is that these women are not always “natural friends”.  Just because you have a neighbor, doesn’t mean you are gonna be BFF.  Just cause you have a co-worker, doesn’t mean you would choose that person as a friend.  I could see myself being friends with some of these ladies (Lisa V. of course) and then not in a million years with others…(um, Brandi?)

I loved seeing  Eileen introduce her family to all of you. She is a kind, sweet woman, and one you will enjoy getting to know.

Let’s hope.  I doubt everyone will be friends at the reunion.  This isn’t my first trip to the rodeo.  Lisa says there are many “uplifting moments” on their way and a few not so uplifting I imagine.  She is hoping we all have a blessed week as we prepare for the holidays.  “Love Always, Lisa.”

 

Yolanda Foster

I was Doubting My Parenting Skills

YoYo Call

Yolanda hopes we are all well and enjoying the season so far.

Hard work does pay off. So proud to see Brandi supporting her family as a single mom and treating herself to a well-deserved present that makes her happy.

I’m sorry.  I have a really hard time with the manipulation for the phrase “Single Mom”.  Brandi gets child support. A very healthy amount every month.  She also receives a salary from Bravo and has her book deals.  She is not living “hand to mouth” although with her spending problems she might actually be living that way, but that is a choice.  I know “Single Moms” that don’t receive a dime from their deadbeat Xs and have to work 2-3 jobs to get by.

Little Giggy is my absolute favorite little star on the show! Seeing him go shopping in Beverly Hills with his parents is too cute. I never even knew there was a clothing store for doggies, but I guess why not?

He is adorable and I am a dog lover.  My pup is recovering from being neutered.  Unfortunately, when I got him at 8 weeks, I didn’t check to see if he had “two balls” and when I took him to the vet, we found out he had an undescended testicle.  Great.  Also, he had kennel cough.  Lovely.  Oh, and worms.  And I couldn’t love him more!

I am so proud of Lisa V. for getting her star on the walk of Palm Springs, acknowledging all her hard work and dedication to the LGBT community. She deserves it. I love to acknowledge and have the ability to celebrate the good times with friends, and that’s why I wish she had invited me to cheer her on and share such an important moment in her life.

Wow, did she just throw a little dig in?  Is she jealous that she wasn’t invited to Palm Springs where we already know it is not customary to iron sheets?

Kyle and Mauricio were so kind to invite me for the weekend on their family vacation. Since I was in Holland with my mom and was only an hour and a half flight away, I thought it would be a great opportunity to spend some quality time and get to know Kyle and her beautiful family in a more substantial way. I have known Kyle for a few years but never really got to know her more intimately after our bumpy start. With that said, I always connected with Mauricio and really enjoyed getting to know their beautiful daughters, who were very kind and a pleasure to be with.

It was a weird coupling when Kyle invited Yolanda.  Was Bravo not willing to film unless there was another housewife on the boat?  I wonder.  Did they invite her in order to get the listing for the Lemon Orchard?

I also really enjoyed spending alone time with Kyle in Spain and actually seeing another side to her that is actually really nice. I loved her interest in European culture, and our more intimate talks that we never had before felt very genuine.

I loved watching them have fun walking the streets and taking in the beautiful architecture.  It was really stunning.

When my phone rang and I heard David’s voice, I knew in my gut something was really wrong. My adrenaline started rushing through my body, and the greatest panic attack of my life set in, like a train ran over my heart. “DUI……….”, “drinking and driving………….” OMG, what if she had hurt someone?! What if she had crashed and gotten killed?! My “what if” button went from zero to 10 in a split second, because my greatest fear is to lose any of my children in a car accident the way I lost my father when I was only seven years old.

I have no comment here.  Those of us that are moms know this is a huge fear.
All of a sudden this picturesque day on this gorgeous yacht just made me feel like a fish out of water. I have never experienced something like this, so I wasn’t ready to share this news with Kyle and her family until I could understand what was happening and understand it in my own head. I had to get off of the boat and walk and pace until my nerves could calm down.

And nosy Kyle was surely sent down to Yolanda’s room hoping to get video of her reaction to this news.  I am actually surprised Yolanda didn’t pull off her mic when she realized what David was telling her.  Yolanda tells us she cried and cried that night.  She felt insecure (as I am sure any mom would feel) and was terrified by the “what ifs”.  Thank God Bella did not injure herself or someone else.

But then again, being a mother is discovering strengths you didn’t know you had and dealing with fears you never knew existed. I could not shake my emotions and cried the entire plane ride home from Spain to LA. Embarassing, to say the least, in front of the other passengers, but I was so overwhelmed with a sense of vulnerability that I had never felt before and couldn’t control. I got out my laptop and wrote Bella the longest letter I have ever written and shared with her all that I felt in my heart and needed her to know. I explained to her how much she meant to me and how fatal this mistake could have been. At the same time putting my thoughts in a row and digesting all that had happened in the past 24 hours made me realize that I had to accept the fact that she had made a human error and that it was up to me to show the lesson and the consequences that were going to come with this eye-opening experience in a way that she would never forget.

This whole event is one of the more “real” events a housewife has experienced and Yolanda’s response is also very real.  My heart goes out to her…and it normally would not!  I would not wish this situation on any mother!

I decided to take her phone away, make her pay for her own lawyer bills from her savings, and we sold her car. The court suspended her license for one year, she received six months probation, and was required to conduct 25 hours of community service and 20 hours of AA meetings.

I am so glad that Yolanda made sure she paid for the consequences of her action. 

The reality is that it was a very painful experience and a lesson learned for our family. The truth is that none of us are perfect. I have and still make mistakes at age 50, so expectations of a life without mistakes from my children would be unrealistic and unfair.

Nope, not one of us are perfect.  Let us never forget that!  Yolanda says sharing this was very personal and sensitive, but she felt it was important for us all to hear it from her.  She sends us off with much love and a big hug.  I kinda like her this week.  But I still won’t do a cleanse with her.

    Interesting note, the BananasFosters have had their home information removed from Zillow, I mean they have completely removed all information on their property. Yes, you can do this, you send a legal notice to them and they have to remove all information. I am sure the property is still for sale at this time. Trulia has also removed anything but the basics as well. It is still listed at the Realtors office for sale.

    Bon jour! Happy Birthday to my Mom! 84 and better than ever! 💕🎂💕

    I listened to the exit interview below with Rob C and Jon. Just the first 15 min is with Jon. Love him or not love him, I found the interview very good. Jon talks about his strategy, some of the things not shown on the show, and his attitude. I have no idea what sort of person Jon is, but after listening, I have Survivor respect for him. Anyway, if you have 15 min, and some interest, this is a good listen.

    It’s raining 💦 be careful out there!

    • Happy birthday to your mama Lady Bra! Hope she has a wonderful day 🎁🎁🎉🎉🎊🎊

    • VV™ says:

He does the podcasts with a girl that Rob partnered up with him & they are great together.

      • ladebra says:

        Oh boy! I love the Challenge! So your son Brian will be doing a pod cast? I will look for him!

        • plainviewsue says:

          Yes! He started doing the Challenge at the end of last season. He was actually doing a podcast on his own web site. He and Rob Cesterino followed each on twitter. We always felt Rob was the best player to never win Survivor!! Anyway, Rob and Brian spoke on the phone (I heard the call and was freaking out!!). So Brian & his partner Allie finished up the Challenge. I never watched it. The link to the podcast will be on Rob Has A Podcast. Thanks Debra! I will let Brian know!!

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

  6. Namaste — awesome blog. Too funny. Thanks !✨
    How OBVIOUS is Yoyo to say she “wished Lisa had invited her” and then RIGHT after, begin by saying she was so happy “Kyle invited” her ……..
    #queenofPassiveAggressive

    VV— I saw 💎Lisa on dr oz yesterday and the outfit seemed verrrry familiar to me, so I analyzed my 400 pictures from her appearance I attended and I think she filmed the same day. Earrings were the same and she had told me on Twitter that she was not bringing Giggy because of the intense cold we were having that time. She told Oz the same thing ….. And it hasn’t been thaaaaaaat cold here so obvi she had taped this some weeks back. She had the same belt —-something diamondy—

  8. Gia’s management company is saying Teresa did NOT pay fir the video- private investors did

    http://www.tmz.com/2014/12/16/teresa-giudice-daughter-music-videos-gia-manager-paying-3kt/#disqus_thread

    • VV™ says:

      I was wondering about this because it seems that somebody put the story that Tre paid for it and everybody ran with the story.

      • T-Rex says:

        What investors? Their grandparents or other extended family? Maybe Bravo? They couldn’t raise anything on some other website pandering for money(I think it was 964 and five hundred were from cousins), they have sold about 25 copies on ITunes which equals about $2.00 towards the artists, so this is definitely a “bust” to any investor.

        • VV™ says:

          They raised very little money you are correct. That still does not prove Tre paid for it.
          Investors get paid for taking risks whether it’s a hit or miss. In this case it appears to be a miss.

          • T-Rex says:

            Oh I agree that it doesn’t prove TheConvictFelon paid for anything. I think their family did so, maybe after they were sent money, but no, there is going to be nothing sent directly from them. Look they STILL haven’t done as the courts have required and even given them 1 page of financial information!! In addition, the other 200K they owe the courts is due in two weeks, and not sure how they pay for this either. Of course they could have used the Bravo money and all the other interview money they are receiving, but then who would fund their lifestyle! Oh, and they haven’t paid a dime of anything they owe right now to anyone!

    • kit9 says:

      “private investors”?? Rofl! Ha ha ha, now tell me another one!

    • T-Rex says:

      I call it a BS Story. Weird word on the street is that THELUnaticZarin is SO mad, and green with envy, she is planting tons of stories regarding Bethenny and her involvement back with the show. I believe a NYPost article or another NY article said that a past Ho-Wife was furiously trying to feed any outlet that would listen rumors about the filming and this person was no longer on the show! It’s no secret Bethenny is probably working half as much of the time, for more money then anyone, so what! We all knew MzAndy would throw buckets of money at her to have her return and give her, whatever hours of filming she wanted. I don’t think any of the Ho-Wives are under any delusion that this would be the case. Well I could possibly see TheDrunkenDelusionalGreyGardensSonja bitching, but I hear she has been bitching about everyone’s salary this season since most are making more than her.

  9. VV™ says:

    Great recap, Namaste!!!

    I think Kyle and Moe inviting Yolanda was hoping to either get a listing on one of their many assets or in the purchase of new one.

    Unlike many here, I think the phone call was a re-enactment. Cameras rolling at the exact time the phone call from David comes in, I find way too lucky for Producers.

    On to punishment for Bella, I didn’t find it that hard. The phone was taken away for less than a month. Kids find ways around that. Her car was sold. I find this one laughable. DUI was on 7-22, Bella moved to NY on 8-18, that car was going to be sold anyways. I also have to mention that between the DUI and move to NY, Bella spent vacation time on board the Helia II at big yatch sailing through the South of France with her dad and sister. Mohamed chartered the yacht for about 10-12 days. I don’t know if she was there all those days, but I know she went.

    Yofo wants to sound all tough….In paper. #fakeasalways

    • plainviewsue says:

      I was glad that Yolanda had Bella pay her legal fees. Remember when Jacko told Ashlee she would have to, but my guess is Chris wound up paying for them.

      • VV™ says:

        That’s what Yofo claims. I think she contributed to it. However, if she did pay legal fees and for a 17 year old kid that must be some generous (savings account), she signed up with IMGModeling on 8-21 and I’m sure she recoup the money Ina jiffy.
        Bella was in the South of France in that big yacht less than a week after her DUI. So, so tough punishment…..and with a suspended license she couldn’t drive anyways.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I think Yolanda did what was necessary-sometimes telling your kid how disappointed you are in their actions is the worst punishment you can give them. Considering the fact that Bella was going to NY a month later whatever punishment Yolanda gave her in terms of staying home no phone etc would be out the window the second she left. Being a parent is hard as shit and when your kids screw up they make the job even harder-in my opinion Yolanda handled as well as I could only hope to if I God forbid found myself in her shoes.

          • VV™ says:

            Jill, Bella didn’t stay home for long. DUI was 7-22. I think Mohamed left for the south of France on 7-24. It is not clear to me if she flew with him. I think not if she was waiting for Yofo to arrive from Spain. I know that at the very least, she was already on board of the Heliad II on 7-28, 6 days after the DUI ( if not earlier)

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              I wasn’t suggesting that she stayed home for long-my only point was that Yolanda handled a terrible situation in a very admirable way. If the trip was planned and Bella was going I honestly do not think making her stay home would have accomplished much-however if she had a trip planned with friends and NOT her father i would hope her parents would cancel that.

              • T-Rex says:

                Jnntj, in addition you wouldn’t perform Community Service immediately after your charges. She would have set up a time and place to do those, hopefully something constructive and meaningful. I don’t understand the issues with Bella yachting off on a vacation with her father right after the incident, I know other places and blogs have skewered them for this, but it was already planned and I am sure she knew when she got home she was going to have to “pay” for her transgression!

                • VV™ says:

                  My criticism is for Yolanda, who wants to make Bella’s sound punishment tough. It really wasn’t, IMO. What Bella owes the State of California in term of icommunity service is separate from that.

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                    I don’t see where Yolanda was implying that Bella’s punishment was tough? She said she took her phone away and the car was sold and she’s making Bella pay for her lawyer-I see a woman showing her daughter consequence for her actions. In this one instance I with Yolanda-because I know how tough it is to see your kids screw up and not strangle them!!

                    • VV™ says:

                      Phone was taken away for less than a month. The car was going to be sold anyways and she couldn’t drive it due to suspended license. She made her pay for legal fees.
                      Unlike you I don’t see Bella paying for driving intoxicated. I’m not going back and forth on this. 😘

                    • PJ says:

                      VV Just wondering how you know her car was going to be sold anyway. Isn’t that just supposition on your part.

              • VV™ says:

                We just have to disagree in this one.

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  We don’t have to go back and forth but I want to say one thing before we end this-Bella’s punishment for this crime comes with a very heavy price-nothing Yolanda does to her will teach her a bigger lesson than being arrested finger printed having a mug shot taken calling her parent to bail you out and being publicity humiliated. Having no phone or no car-or even having to miss a vacation pales in comparison to all of that-and then throw in the sheer disappointment and heart ache that she caused her parents-facing them everyday after doing what she did is more punishment than I would ever want to deal with.

    • T-Rex says:

      I think the VileKyle placement of YOLO-LemonHead in her storyline was to have Bravo pay for their adventure! I don’t think that Murray has any chance of scoring the listing on the Yolo-Lemonhead home, as it’s being listed by a friend of DavidBananasFoster. He may try but it ain’t going to happen Cap’n. I do say good for YOLO on her daughter, I believe that she made her daughter do chores or something to pay her fines, and that she made her do the community service. I do believe she stuck to her guns with this and I am sure Bella is well aware if she pulls this nonsense again, there will be way more hell to pay.

      • VV™ says:

        I didn’t imply their beautiful Malibu home. That’s why I typed “on one of their many assets”.

      • Jules says:

        they needed Yolanda to film the yacht the Murray’s company had for sale in that boat division. without Yolanda showing up Bravo would not have filmed and Murray couldn’t get it on camera. Think the boat is still for sale.

        they did not pay to spend a week on the boat. It was a sales piece for the company.

      Please punish me to the YACHT!

    Namaste, I just love your take on the blogs. Just the right amount of humor, your opinion and a recap of it. Very well done!!! So Brandi didn’t blog this week? Too busy????

    • NO Blog from Brandi or Kyle this week! I noticed when Veena posted then got nervous and double checked. It was actually quite pleasant to not have to re-hash Brandi’s moronic blog. Like a little holiday gift to me!

      • TexasTart says:

        🎁 I’ll bet! I look forward to reading later!

      • ladebra says:

        I ditto.. you know what I mean! Love your blogs. I don’t go onto the Bravo site any more … why would I when you and the other blog bloggers do such an awesome job!

        • lila1star says:

          I enjoy these blogs as well. I sometimes wish the one about cast blogs would come sooner 🙂 That said–if the YoYo Dui story wasn’t a re-enactment I wonder about Kyle barging in when she knew Yo was on the phone! I had one child–a daughter who blessed me with 4 grandkids (yes you will being a grandma–best role ever!) 3 of those kids are girls each 2 yrs apart. 2 of them now in college. I learned it really is hard to enforce punishment on a 17 going on 18 yr old who is leaving the nest.

          Brandi–leased that car for 3,000 and in her words “will continue to pay until she can not afford to anymore”.

      • Powell says:

        Merry Christmas Namaste! 🙂 🎅 🎀 🎁

      • plainviewsue says:

        I didn’t even realize Kyle didn’t write a blog!!! What does that mean??????????????????

    *******SPOILER ALERT********
    Watching Wendy Williams. Apollo wrote a list of what Tre should do while in prison. Wendy Only read a few. Tip:
    #1 Keep to yourself at first and don’t act like you’re better than anyone.
    #2 Make sure you write to your kids and tell them how much you miss them & make sure someone brings them to visit you.
    #3 Eat the prison food. Not the starchy food that will cause you to gain weight but eat.
    Good tips. 🙂

    • California35 says:

      Good tips! Basic and easy. I hope she doesnt get into any kind of trouble there 😞

      • Last week there were all kinds if rumors joe was filing to divorce Teresa. And Phaedra was filing to divorce Appollo.

        Now I want Appollo and Teresa to get married.

        Best Bravo wedding show ever.

        • Milania and Mr. president will be the glower children

        • Powell says:

          Joe and Tre are sticking together like glue. Now Apollo and Phadera are another story. Phadera has realized having a good looking husband can’t overcome what he’s done and it’s not worth it.
          An Apollo and Tre wedding?!?! I am watching that. 😄

        • T-Rex says:

          Everytime any one of them goes to an attorney’s office by themselves they are “getting divorced”, which is not true. He could be there to give a deposition in that new farce of a lawsuit, he could have been signing documents at his criminal attorneys office, etc. That dolt ConvictFelonTeresa is not going to divorce him, at least until she is out of prison. She needs his family to help with the girls while she is in Prision

  12. Powell says:

    Bobble Head is going to be on The Real talk show on Friday. 🙄

  13. T-Rex says:

    So, I have had to be searching around the court systems yet again and came across some nifty court cites for the State of New York. Okay, so I have researched ConvictFelonTeresa’s new attorney and he has a whopping 9 cases in the Civil Courts, both Supreme and Local courts. From what I have read this guy is basically a Bankruptcy Attorney, not Civil attorney, uhm two of the cases were suing a bowling alley, SO, I looked up the supposed court filing numbers that have been listed on the Summons, came up with nada in New York and nothing for ConvictFelonTeresa either. NOW, a Summons is, according to websites something you must file, prior to suing anyone civilly(heck didn’t even know if this was a word, but spchk took it), and doesn’t look to be officially filed with the courts itself. Not a single court I could find, in looking into the Government website itself,(found all their other court cases), and searching out the New York courts had this case listed in any way, shape or form. The twenty day period to reply to the Summons is up next week, so maybe they have to wait then to file the real documents? Won’t be able to check much for this next week, but the week of the 29th I can check for any updates. I have looked into various sources as to what exactly a SUMMONS is, but I think it’s like a Herald blowing a horn to say that litigation is coming! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summons

    Good morning everyone, its cold and raining in California.
    Thanks Namaste for the blog and to all for the comments. You all make a fun read 😊

  15. Breaking news:

    Gia’s girl band is releasing their cover of JailHouse Rock on Jan 5th.

    Jk!

  16. Powell says:

    Namaste you didn’t realize Vincent was that Van Patten huh? Yup. Dad, Dick was the dad on Eight is Enough. Their famous aunt Joyce. I forgot actress Talia Balsam, married to John slattery, Roger on Mad Men, is Joyce’s daughter. The Van Patten’s were Hollywood back in the day.

  17. Powell says:

    Namaste I’m w/you sista. If I win the lottery Yachts R Us here I come cuz I’m chartering one too. And of the David Foster variety. 😉

    • T-Rex says:

      oooOOO! I would only rent not own though, I remember an old saying the best day in a boating life is the day you buy your dream Boat, the second best day is the day you sell it! They are money pits, there is a “boatload” of upkeep required, look at the amount of staff for that fake show Below Deck, they have real deckhands on board with the fake actors, but it’s a staff of about 7 to 10 to run the ship, not including a chef and wait staff.

      • Powell says:

        No way would I buy one. I’ve seen shows on HGTV & other channels about luxury Yachts and the maintenance is a killer. I don’t see how billionaires even afford them.

        • T-Rex says:

          Most of them use them as Tax Write-offs for Business expenses. I saw a show with the Hendrick MotorSports Yacht and it’s primary use is to “entertain” sponsors. I would bet that most of the huge yachts are the same

        • Exit4 says:

          Even “regular” boats you see down the shore are so expensive to maintain day to day. Most people take them out of the water in the winter and the storage is a lot! Even more if you don’t live on the water and have to rent a slip. My dad never wanted to bother with it and most of their friends who did stopped and sold them! You have to really love it to do it!

  18. Powell says:

    Read between the lines Bobble Head. Lisa means you when she said “friendship should be: a secure place where you don’t put demands on somebody.”
    Can she read between the lines? 😱

  19. Powell says:

    Bella is very lucky and more than likely has learned from her mistake. It took Kyle’s niece Paris Hilton some time in jail before she finally straightened up.

  20. shamrockblonde says:

    can she read? I know – too mean – but…can she? thanks for the blogs!! my heart goes out to Yo, despite not really caring for her all that much – I think for parents, the second you find out that your child is on the way, mixed in with the joy and the planning and the wonder, there begins a little fear – then your angel is here, and it is exciting, and tiring, and time seems to fly by, and yet, under all of that, is that little ribbon of fear – baby’s first step – pride – fear – first day of school – excitement, a new experience, fear – but the real fear starts when your angel is facing situations over which you have absolutely no control – at least with their first bike ride, you could place protective gear on them in case of a fall – their first day of school, you could follow the bus, but now they are older, and they believe themselves to be invincible – they are no longer under your watchful eye, and you must trust that you instilled in them, among other things, a good amount of common sense – but that ribbon of fear is now much bigger – and then something like this happens – and the first few moments of that are filled with heart-stopping terror, anger and self doubt – all at once – and then you have to deal with it – and not in the way that will calm your fear but in a way that will make your child, who is no longer a child, realize that life is very real, and that all actions, from the simple to the complex, have consequences – but most of all you have to make them see that they are not, after all, invincible – that their lives could end in the blink of any eye – and that lesson is terrifying and one of the most important lessons you teach your child – how you handle that will show your child how to handle the reality of life – of decisions you make – both in the moment and for the long term – my prayer is that Yo and her husband are up for the challenge – you must quiet that fear, and make it not about you –

  21. Powell says:

    You all just crack me up.

    So JNNTJ Maggie is now going to cocktail parties? She is my kinda fashionista. I’m telling you Maggie and I could hang.

    So NMD Sonja has a fashion line. A shirt draped over a toaster oven according to Exit. I’m literally imagining it. LOL. 😆😆😆

  22. Thanks Namaste for blogging the blogs, great job!!! So I was thinking about Kyle and Brandi not talking anymore….but Kim is still friends with Brandi….YIKES that means that Brandi will know all the family secrets…The Reunion will be interesting…lol!

  23. TexasTart says:

    Yoohoo Namaste!

  24. Wut?

    The Guardians of Peace is the group that claims responsibility for the hacking of Sony and leaking all of these emails to the press- plus the personal information of Sony employees like social security #s.

    So now they’re saying they will bomb theaters that are showing the movie The Interview, and if your house is nearby a movie theater – evacuate.

    Shit just got real

  25. TexasTart says:

    Namaste – thanks for your take on their blogs! The standout moment for me was when you realize that having Tea in Lisa V’s closet should be #1 on your bucket list destinations! 😀

      • T-Rex says:

        TheLUNATICZarin is in “overdrive” trying to plant stories and rumors all over the place, she is SO envious of the fact that she was NOT asked to come back, no one wants her to come back. She pays her own money and travel to try and be with the other Ho-Wives at events. All those shots of her in LA in Miami, etc., that’s all on her OWN dime, Bravo is not footing any of those travel expenses. They do I guess allow her to attend the event once she is there, but I would bet at Charity functions she, or really BAWBY has had to plunk down their own cash to attend. Bawby is going to be working until he is a 104 to pay for all her shenanigans just for what another fifteen minutes of fame? I have heard she has made almost nothing from that squeezemelo line, crap she doesn’t even really promote any longer. That jewelry line, which was actually designed by someone else, that she slapped her name to isn’t selling. I am sure that there is some moldy wine out there longing to have her mug slapped on it, just like all the other Ho-wives(with the exception of Bethenny, she actually created her brand).

      😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴x100000000

      needs to drum up excitement. Franchise was on last legs. (And no Aviva !)
      I’m sure she COULD threaten to call andy and have anyone taken off – but if this is brought up on camera or anywhere — theyd edit it out in favor of Barf/Bethenny — Andy’s deal.
      He couldn’t appear to play faves with carole and can’t now.

      New picture too. No more SG?
      Are the lines still not doing well ?? I don’t see much at the stores anymore – ?

      I agree with what I read last week :
      It’s a total step backwards for her. Downgrade.
      And if she’s not choosing to show the rapist boyfriend then audience will not be seeing the “full” Beth everyone fell in love with 💩years ago.

      It will be half a$$ed and a snooze.

      Bring on Dorinda the happy witch !

  27. chismosa says:

    VV – I’m with you on the really really really punished 😏overindulged Yo’s daughter – also the neglected 2nd daughter/ middle child.

    I found it too perfectly timed on the boat also 📞☎️

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      She was actually on the boat when she got the call so chances are Bravo was filming-it’s not a stretch. I didn’t feel it was a recreation like some of the stuff we see.
      I’m suddenly feeling the need to stick up for Yolanda and I don’t know why? Maybe it’s the motherhood thing..idk I just hope it doesn’t last too long-she was never on my FAVE list!!
      Ohhhhh maybe it’s my gravy!!! I need to change it STAT!!!

    • VV™ says:

      Chismo, The DUI happened at 4AM. Mayorca is 7 hours ahead. It was 11AM Mayorca time. I don’t know exactly when David called Yofo if right after he found out or after Bella was released.
      The sun light on the boat at the time of the phone call looked to me like very late afternoon not morning or afternoon light.
      I am not disputing that was Yofo’s reaction. The HWs are used reenactments, they do it all the time.

  28. VV™ says:

    • Good for her! Interesting…although could it be possible they stopped off at another house either before or after where ” the wine glowed freely” and there was a snitch in the house?

      • VV™ says:

        USMagazine implies it happened at Teresa’s. This magazine knows that putting Teresa on the cover equals sales. They’ll just make up a story put Tre on the cover and voila, guaranteed sale.

  29. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    I can’t EVEN with Stacci-I don’t even like typing her dumb name!!

  30. Now Kathi Lee is saying Cosby put the moves on her too.
