Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

“Live and Learn” – S5E9

by Stars99

NOTE:  Be prepared to jump for joy cuz Brandi (The Twit) was barely in this episode at all! Yippie! While there is still some vulgarity and cussing, (mainly in last week’s recap and a couple of gratuitous quotes here and there)… Overall, it was really quite an innocuous and non-drama-filled episode… But don’t we both know I’ll find lots to snark about anyway? lol…

Remember last week…

Brandi (The Twit) had the 2nd straight week of showing herself to be completely ignorant, insulting, and obnoxiously obscene with her over-the-top rude and gross vulgarities. The sad part is that looking back, I can honestly say that I wasn’t all that shocked by it… However, I AM shocked that the very persnickety and genteel YoYo thus far seems to be putting up with it… but I digress… Needless to say, that since Brandi (The Twit) was very involved throughout the entire episode that there was lots of cussin’ and stuff… In addition, there was a pretend “Friendship Summit” between Brandi (The Twit) and Lisa V wherein the ever-delusional Brandi (The Twit) demanded that Lisa apologize about Scheana… In another scene, Brandi inexplicably threw an actual glass of wine at Eileen while dining at a very nice ocean-side restaurant. Evidently, Brandi (The Twit) thought she could manipulate Eileen into becoming a trained seal and would thus transform into her soap opera character…During YoYo’s dinner party, Brandi (The Twit) managed to emasculate the newly wedded Baby Face on national TV by criticizing the size of the diamond in the wedding ring worn by his gorgeous wife… Oh, and she also made an extremely vulgar gesture and referred to it as “finger banging” during the hallowed end of the evening sing-a-long time with David Foster… Yeah, this is why I’m currently referring to Brandi as “Brandi (The Twit)… I mean seriously… How could I not? Unless of course you have a better idea… I’m open to suggestions…lol…

Because I was curious, and just as a point of reference, I decided to look up the ratings for a couple of shows that we watch here on this blog and compare their viewership:

Last week – (Live and Same Day Statistics):

1,307,000 Viewers – Vanderpump Rules (Last season’s average was: 1,517,529)

1,839,000 Viewers – Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (Last season’s average was: 1,824,905)

3,355,000 Viewers – Real Housewives of Atlanta (Last season’s average was: 3,833,211)

This week…

This week it’s all about the kids and college (or lack thereof). I’m sure there will be plenty of tears (parents) and cheers (kids). The episode opens with a phone call from Lisa V to Max, her imperfect 23-year-old son who is no longer attending college. Lisa and Ken have put their foot down that if he isn’t going to college anymore then he has to make it on his own. For Max, that means he has to work at one of their restaurants. At one point, Lisa says that he has to work there to pay her back…Who knows what the financial arrangement is – but he’s currently working at Sur. Lisa is concerned that he doesn’t seem to be very ambitious.

Lisa th

There are roses, roses everywhere around Lisa’s house and we find out that it’s their 32ndanniversary! I looked it up and it’s the anniversary that celebrates “conveyances/transportation” – So it seems to me that either someone should have received a car – Or they should have gone on an exotic excursion somewhere fun via some sort of luxurious transportation, no?

Speaking of cars, when Max visited he drove his girlfriend’s car. Lisa asked if he was insured to drive it – and he said, “No.” He may be pulling their leg or maybe not. I’m sure insurance is a huge issue for the Royal Vanderpumps because they need to protect their assets. Max said that he doesn’t have proof of insurance or registration on his own car either. He keeps laughing about it – but the Royal Vanderpumps are not amused. He doesn’t have a current registration sticker on his car because he hasn’t gotten his car “smogged.” For those not from this area, California has some very stringent laws concerning car emissions and requires you to get your car smog tested every 2 years. As a result of the 1970 Clean Air Act, California will not issue a new registration until they receive the electronic certification that your vehicle has “passed” the inspection via the smog testing station. I know this because we just did this just today on our Honda Odyssey. It costs a whopping $38.  It’s a pain in the neck, it’s true. However, the positive difference in the air quality between the 1970s and now is phenomenal – Especially when considering the population in California has almost doubled between 1970 (19.9 million) and 2014 (38.3 million) – According to the CA Department of Finance…http://www.dof.ca.gov/research/demographic/reports/estimates/e-1/view.php. There are many factors that contributed to California’s air quality improvement… but who cares about that when we can snark about people on TV? Lol…

Lisa tells wants Max to learn every aspect of the restaurant business. Max started out washing dishes and is gradually learning other jobs. Lisa really goes on and on about Max’s lack of ambition and she compares him to Pandora, the Perfect One. Lisa also wonders if his lack of ambition is because he was adopted. In all my years, my parents never brought up my adoption as being an explanation for something – I mean not ever! Plus, I would hate having to be compared to Pandora, the Perfect One.

We learn that Lisa demonstrated tough love towards Max when she allowed him to not have electricity for 3 months.  She wanted him to be motivated to work hard so he could get it turned back on. She recognized that if she just went ahead and paid the bill that he would not have any motivation to work hard. Whoa… That’s some serious nerves of steel. Now before anyone gets all batcrapcrazy about poor Max freezing to death in the middle of winter or something… As a point of reference – At this very moment it’s a balmy 50 degrees at 3:18 AM. Heck, most people would break out the suntan lotion if they experienced that temperature in the dead of winter. Max insists he wants to take on more responsibility at work but Lisa is wondering about his motivation. She thinks it’s because he has a girlfriend. Lisa wants him to want it for himself and not for anyone else. Lisa says, “A mother is as happy as her saddest child.” Lisa says something a little wonky about how well Pandora and her husband Jason are doing and about how Jason could be stepping into the shoes that could have belonged to Max… It’s a dangerous game to pit son-in-law against son…

Kyle th

Kyle’s entire family is in Tucson, Arizona to move Alexia to college – I mean even older sister Farrah is there. We know from past episodes that if Kyle had her way that Alexia would go to college nearer to home. Kyle is torn because she wants her daughter to get the college education she never received herself – but that it’s also painful and she doesn’t seem to want to let go. Kyle really hates that she didn’t go to college. That’s a huge regret to have… Perhaps she’ll go sometime… I think it would be kewl for her to do so.

Alexia didn’t get on-campus dormitory housing so she has to live in an apartment off campus. They arrive and check out the apartment and then go shopping for whatever they don’t already have. We saw Kyle planning out everything she thinks Alexia will need in previous episodes – So I’m guessing Alexia is good to go.

As the family sits around talking about Alexia while she’s on campus doing her thing, they talk about how it’s really easy for her to make friends, etc. Mauricio chimes in that it’s not a question of whether or not Alexia will make it – Of course she will – but it’s about them wanting Alexia’s presence at home. We find out that that when Farrah went off to college Kyle got pregnant with Portia partly so she would be distracted. Kyle makes a joke that every time one of her kids goes off to college that she will just get pregnant to replace them.  On a side note, we see no less than 3 different times the name of the resort where Kyle and her family are staying… I refuse to continue to publicize it… but I’m guessing they got their entire stay comped for the free publicity…lol.

Mauricio and Kyle privately talk about how they need to get Alexia a bank account and settle on a dollar amount they will send her. At first, Mauricio suggests that since her rent and tuition are already paid for that she needs money for food. He tosses out $500 per week. Are you kidding me? And would you care to adopt a snarky blogger from Orange County? He and Kyle try to do math…okay, that’s $15 per meal times 3 meals a day times 7 days a week…. (because don’t we ALL pay $15 per meal???) So according to my calculations, that comes out to $315 per week x 4 weeks = $1,260. Nope… They’re sending $1,800.  I mean it’s not crazy… but wow…just wow. How many of us lived on ramen noodles, popcorn, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, macaroni and cheese, and scrambled eggs while in college? I mean… Isn’t that part of the whole experience?

Portia

A storm hits while they’re having their “Last Supper” together. The wind unexpectedly blows up and almost blows Portia away…lol. Thunder and lightning storms can be so unpredictable in the desert. They decide to say goodbye at the hotel instead of at Alexia’s apartment. This is so not going to be pretty. As they leave the restaurant to go back to the hotel, as the wind and rain are hitting, you can hear Portia say, “Why am I doing this to myself?” Hilarious…

Kyle cry

Back at the hotel, Kyle is dreading the second Alexia walks out the door. Through tear-stained eyes she assures Alexia that she is going to have so much fun. She asks her to text her when she gets back home tonight. Kyle can’t walk out to the car with her because she doesn’t want to see her say goodbye to Mauricio. Kyle tells us that the whole dynamic of her home changes with each child that leaves. Everyone is tearing up – including me. This has brought Kyle and Mauricio closer together through this shared pain.

Meanwhile, YoYO and Bella are in New York City. YoYo says that it never gets easy to send daughters off to college. Bella’s DUI changed everything for YoYo and made her feel insecure about letting Bella go. … YoYo took Bella’s DUI very personally like she had done something wrong. I really didn’t like how on one hand, YoYo noted how serious the DUI was… but on the other hand she explained it away by saying it was merely a single glass of wine, etc. I also hope there were stricter punishments than what we’ve heard about, too… This crap makes me so mad… Anyway, it’s important to YoYo to show her daughter that she won’t push her away if her actions embarrass her. I so want to believe that Bella has learned her lesson… but color me cynical.

Meanwhile, in New York, YoYo is overseeing the moving in of Bella’s fancy dancy rugs and furniture. YoYo puts up a wall of love… Wait… did I miss the attendance mandatory painting party this year? Poor Bella, too often the 2nd child always a tad overlooked. Bella, I’d cry for you – but I’ve seen your apartment – and while it’s not quite as nice as Gigi’s… It’s still quite amazing, if you ask me. YoYo lives by the motto – If you want something done right – You do it yourself…Yeah, or pay someone else to do it exactly as you dictate, no?

Bella comes home just in time when everything is already perfectly in place. Bella has an ooey gooey mushy card for her mom. It basically tells YoYo not to worry about her being alone in New York. She expresses that from the deepest part of her heart that she wants to regain YoYo’s trust and be the woman she raised her to be… And that she should trust that this mistake doesn’t define who she is as a person. She also assures YoYo that what happened doesn’t mean she’s not a good mother… But that kids make mistakes… She assures her that she “learned my consequences.” YoYo tells us that Bella knows there is no second chance in this.

Brandi (The Twit) has a highly caffeinated… I mean high powered meeting at The Coffee Bean with her lawyer. Brandi says she doesn’t put her purse on the ground because it’s a superstition that you will lose your money. I don’t put my purse on the ground because it will get dirty.

Brandi starts off by saying to her lawyer, “I just need clearance on Eddie’s letter.” Clearance? You need CLEARANCE on the letter? It sounds to me you need “clarity” on Eddie’s letter. OMG… We have heard this four million times before. The lawyer says Eddie’s not saying he’s asking Brandi for money but that he wants to recoup the child support and spousal support that he’s already overpaid according to his calculations. The money will come out of Brandi’s share of his retirement. Eddie is asserting that he’s not making any money at the present time. Brandi’s attorney wants to keep fees low and not go back to court – but Brandi really wants to do so. Brandi wants Eddie to get a job so that she and her kids will get more money. Brandi’s attorney thinks her position is strong but that if she ends up in litigation that she is going to be mad.

Eileen college

We see a couple of segments about Eileen’s (That Tramp’s) family. Her two stepsons are going back to college. Her experience as a stepmother has been awesome and she loves it. She knows she’s not their mother and that she’s had to earn their respect and love. She thinks they see her as being tough but fair. She has spoiled them rotten but she loves them to pieces. In a feel-good moment right after they’ve all had dinner – Vince (My Boyfriend) and all the boys break out in a round of applause for dinner. Of course this is all for camera – but wouldn’t it be nice if it happened at other times, too? And wouldn’t it be nice if the applause was for me after I cook them all dinner? Oh wait…did I say that out loud?

Other Things we learned from this episode…

~~ The University of Arizona sits on 380 acres of land and therefore has a “bike valet” service for students wherein you ride your bike to class and much like a car valet – You leave your bike in the hands of someone who will watch over your bike until you return. Whoa… I wonder if you have to tip them? I wonder if they, too, will change the position of your seat and the radio station like other valets do?

~~ At one time in her life, Kyle wanted to become a lawyer. It may have been that she just saw too many Perry Mason episodes growing up… I mean, didn’t we all? She probably would have made a great attorney or at least she could play one on TV.

~~ It’s hilarious to me how all these families are so sad when their children go off to college. I think my parents threw “a kegger” when I left… No seriously…lol.

~~ Lisa and Harry are in a movie called, “Director’s Cut” wherein they play themselves and it’s written by Penn Jillette.

~~ Brandi (The Twit) invited her friend Jennifer and Kim over to watch Eddie and Leann’s new reality show to make sure her kids weren’t actually on the show. She charmingly refers to Leeann as a “cunt”try music star. She once again complains about her child support/spousal support check and holds up a $1,000 check. She says that will cover groceries for one week. Wow – Where do YOU shop? In her “Holy Hypocrite, Batman” moment – Brandi (The Twit) complains about being a unpaid character on their reality show because they talk about her all the time. Yes, we hear this from Brandi (The Twit’s) lips while she’s on her own reality show talking about THEM all the freakin’ time. Puhleeze!

Brandi being hypocrite

Funniest Moment of the Epsiode…

While Lisa R is on her way to film her segment of a movie, she is in her car exercising her mouth and lips. She makes funny faces and says, “Red leather, yellow leather… Red leather, yellow leather… wingaway wingaway. She says, “You have to have these lips in action or else you’re fumbling.” And we now have the answer to why Lisa’s lips are so big – It’s because she exercises them so much. Those are actual muscles, dagnabit!

Lips doing mouth

Delusional Thought of the Episode…

Brandi (The Twit) actually wants to someday be able to sit around a holiday table with her side of the family as well as with her ex-husband, his wife and his in-laws. Right… Because it’s not like you’ve badmouthed them from here to eternity on national TV or anything. I mean in this VERY episode you do. Get a grip!

Quotes of the episode…

“It’s terrible – I want to be like, ‘Yes… Go… Spread your wings and fly! – FUCK that!’” says Kyle in a surprising moment of cussing in her talking head interview regarding Alexia going off to college.

Kyle fuck that

Next week…

I would tell you what’s happening next week but I don’t want to end this episode with crappy negativity. Let’s just wait for next week, shall we?

Well, that’s it for this episode… Thanks for reading… Have a most excellent week! Happy Trails!

    Good morning everyone.
    I didn’t watch last night. Looking forward to reading. Have a great day. 🙂

  4. Thanks you for recapping! I am still blown away at how much Alexia will get a week to eat…lol! What is she eating? Surf and turf for every meal? I was surprised that Lisa V. took digs at Max and compared him to Pandy. Not cool. I was impressed that she let him live for 3 months without electricity hoping to motivate him to earn some cash. Lisa R. is the total entertainment and “clown” of the show and I LOVE HER! Love her perkiness and her personality.
    Brandi brandi brandi. Just when I think she can’t get worse, well, she does. I am going to start keeping track of the number of times she says Eddie in a show. I WILL NOT make it a drinking game cause I cannot count when I am drunk.
    In the preview I think we all see that shit is about to get real. I am deeply saddened to see that perhaps our Kim has fallen off the wagon. No matter what I’ve said here about her, I have always supported her sobriety. I pray this was a staged incident, but I am not too hopeful.

    • Veena (NMD) says:

      I was sort of appalled at how Lisa V compared Max and Pandy and said she wondered if he wasn’t like the rest of the (in work ethic) because of his genes. Seemed unnecessarily mean – many 23 year olds are still finding their way. I get tough love, but that was cruel.

      As for 1,800 a month for food and incidentals – wowza – that girl will be buying all the drinks when she goes out with friends.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        That gene remark was shitty.

      • Foxymel(Mel) says:

        I have to say that I cringed when she compared Max to Pandy and then the gene remark…..not good.

        Terrific blog! Thanks Veena and Stars!

        • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

          You’re welcome, Foxy! I cringed, too… That was a horrible remark…

          • I Need a Life! says:

            Thanks for the blog, Stars…I don’t watch BH, but you make it easy to catch up. My son, my last, is leaving in August. Heading to South Carolina. I’m north. I see myself in that photo of Kyle at the edge of the bed. Oye.

            • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

              You’re welcome, I need a Life… Yeah… Saying goodbye to a kid moving away must be so difficult… We’re here for you! 🙂

      • Very bad. I think she maybe did flippant, but very bad. Cringe-worthy.

      • kit9 says:

        My jaw dropped open when I heard her use the word genetics.

      • Powell says:

        Lisa shouldn’t have said that. She and Ken need to look at themselves to determine if they treated differently, coddled, smothered him w/special attention, didn’t give him the same level of responsibility like they did Pandy cuz he’s adopted and they felt they needed to be more protective or easier on him. You know? They may not have set out to do any of that but subconsciously did. If so it could be some of the reason he at times isn’t as motivated. Also lots of kids from wealthy backgrounds do just that.

      • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

        ITA NMD… Really pissed me off… You did a great job on picture placement… btw.. 🙂

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

      I THINK, but can’t prove it, that Lisa was asked specifically to compare Max to Pandora for that talking head.

    • Powell says:

      Well you remember when they took Portia shopping for clothes to go on the yacht? $500 something. And Mo wanted to buy her more. That’s my clothes allowance for Fall, winter, going into Spring clothes. So if Alexia is getting lobster money for her allowance I’m not surprised. That’s how the Umansky’s roll.

    • Powell says:

      Namaste Eddie should be the real drinking game. We’d be so dru Wed fall off our couches. Eddie should thank Bobble for the free advertisement.

    • Powell says:

      Yeah I want Kim to be ok. So far she’s really looked good.

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      You’re welcome, Namaste – I thought the amount was surprising, too – and that they would discuss it on national TV… but I guess rich kids get that kind of money… I just want to be adopted…

    • I Need a Life! says:

      Namaste….Thank you for that great BH blog recap yesterday. I don’t watch BH, but I was able to follow.

    • TexasTart says:

      NAMASTE! I forgot to post and tell you I enjoyed the blog yesterday! 😊

  5. Powell says:

    Check out Gigi’s new gig. I tweeted her and Yo & Mohamed congrats.

  9. Veena (NMD) says:

    So do they eat out every meal – I couldn’t spend that much if I tried – organic and healthy isn’t cheap, but it isn’t THAT expensive either – Whole Foods is maybe double?

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      And she says that she ALWAYS uses coupons!! Where the hell is this crazy woman shopping?? I go to the grocery store every Friday and spend around 200 bucks-more if I’m having a party over the weekend less if Kevin is working nights-that’s for 4 people. I never run out of anything during the week so I never have to go back for more. She needs to shut up and stop complaining about money-she seems to have plenty. Nice house nice car-beauty treatments up the wazoo-she’s not struggling and it’s disgraceful for her to pretend she is. It’s a slap in the face to when who are really struggling to raise their kids WITHOUT support. Her victim act is old and she needs to get over herself!

      • Veena (NMD) says:

        How much do you spend a week on white wine Perhaps that’s the difference.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Yeah…I’m guessing some cash goes to that little habit of hers!!

        • Exit4 says:

          If I buy 2 bottles a week, maybe $30-40 depending on the brand I want. If I don’t get bottles, I like Bota (it’s non shitty boxed wine) that costs $18.99 at Wegmans. Brandis booze budget is surely quadruple mine!

        • Foxymel(Mel) says:

          Forgot about that! That’s probably what’s in her budget too.

      • Exit4 says:

        I can get away with less then that, because we buy all our meat from Costco and freeze it. We can go 2-3 months with one Costco meat trip! Lol! I also use coupons and take advantage the sales. If it’s say limit 4 for stuff we use a lot-We buy the limits and save it. Jose does the shopping on Sunday’s. It’s usually bread, lunch meat (but I’m on a “cold cuts” thing now b/c of the Geico commercial!), milk, fruits and vegetables. And whatever baked good is on sale! It’s his downfall. We’re on a cookie ban right now. We need to finish what we have! Lol!

        • SoutheastVA says:

          OMG! I’ve been on a cold cut thing too. Out of the blue a few weeks ago I started craving cold cuts and grilled cheese sandwiches…varieties. My hubby went shopping ( he cooks so he shops) and I asked for cold cuts. He came back with salami, mortadella, ham, smoked turkey, pate and prosciutto. He knows I love good antipasto and charcuterie with our wine or to make my fake European picnic sandwiches with. He was insulted because i said I wanted old fashion bologna we grew up eating. I had to have it. So I went back out to get it. Sometimes you have to go back to what you grew up on. The other stuff didn’t go to waste. What we don’t eat my kids happily lap up.

          • Exit4 says:

            I love boars head Bologna! Sometimes I’ll get a quarter pound and have a bologna and cheese sandwich! On a fresh amoroso roll. It’s all about the roll-that’s the Philadelphia in me! Its so bad for you-but it tastes soo good! I live for an Italian meat tray with marinated mozzarella balls to go with it!

            • SoutheastVA says:

              I haven’t tried an amoroso roll. I will have to. I love good bread too. It’s the base of the sandwich isn’t it. I like boars head bologna too. But, that day I was jonsing for good ol Oscar Meyer. smh

        • Do you do the shuffle when you get your cold cuts? My husband bought home cold cuts on Sunday and I did the shuffle for him!

    • Exit4 says:

      Wine doesn’t count as a fruit Brandi!!!

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      If she goes to whole foods and buys the hot foods there for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and then maybe. If she isn’t cooking every meal, then it make cost her $700. One shake there is like $5.00.
      She probably doesn’t grocery shop for the week but goes in daily. Just my thought.

    • boston02127 says:

      If she lived in one house for more than one season, she could grow a garden and save a ton.

    • Well, the boys aren’t with her EVERY week anyway. LOL! And there is NO WAY this Bitch spends 1000 a week on groceries. No way.

    • VV™ says:

      She blew that six figure check from her book on a car. She gets no symphathy from me. Aside from that, they are co parenting. I see those kids spending a lot more time with Eddie and LeAnn than with her.

      Leave it up to the attorneys to work out the child support details. Is he not getting cast for anything or turning down jobs?

      • kit9 says:

        Exactly! She gets a huge bonus check and what was her first instinct? Set up that college fund she’s mentioned? Hmm? No. A car. A ridiculously overpriced car.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          An over priced car that she got for the intention of showing it off to her ex-who she is “over” by the way…

    • T-Rex says:

      That’s such BS!!! I don’t have kids but my brother does, and they even shop some at WholeFoods and they don’t spend even $300/week on FOOD! RIDICULOUS! OH and lets point out that ManCandyEddy has those kids for fifty percent of the time and from all reports it’s more like 65% of the time so WTF

      • I Need a Life! says:

        I’m sure she counts make up and booze as groceries.

        Did anyone here ever follow up on that savings plan that someone posted at the beginning of the year? It was something like save $1 for the first week, $2 second week, and so on. I was up to $4 before I stopped!

        It’s time to put the Christmas decorations away, isn’t it.

  10. Exit4 says:

    Starsy-I use the word “slore” to describe Brandi-of you’re looking for another descriptor!

  11. Veena (NMD) says:

    So Brandi – feeding a family of 3 spends as much a week as Mo and Kyle gave Alexia for food and incidentals – Hollywierd.

    I do think that $1,000 a month was low before she was working – but now Brandi probably makes more than Eddie – soon he’ll be asking her to pay. It sucks when your ex is a douche. Get a job Eddie!

    Brandi might be better off settling for no spousal or child support in case LeAnn dumps him and he comes looking to Brandi for $$ –

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Don’t forget that Brandi isn’t feeding her kids 7 days a week-they share custody so she doesn’t feed them everyday-she spends 1000 a half week-imagine if they were with her everyday? She would have us believing they are eating out of a dumpster!!

      • Exit4 says:

        I think Brandi makes up numbers for everything!

        • T-Rex says:

          Why qualify that statement with just “numbers” THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARWHOLIESTOLIEMORONSTFUBrandi pretty much makes up “EVERYTHING”, she wouldn’t know the truth or real information if it Bit her on her ass!

    • T-Rex says:

      She is no longer receiving Spousal support that ran out a couple of years ago, it’s now down to Child Support only.

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

        That doesn’t mean Eddie has to pay 100% of his kids groceries. And brandis wine.

    • I Need a Life! says:

      I missed this. Did Kyle give her daughter $700 each week or each month or for the entire school year?

    Good morning !

    Thanks Stars, my neighbor, as usual great job 😏😃👏👏

    You are so funny 😋 yes! It would be nice if YOU were doing the cooking for your boyfriend and his kids 😛

    I’m glad we had a break from all the scripted and noy scripted stupid drama. This one, with exception of the ovbious, was nice. Even her part was not too much, i just leave the room or check on the blog 😊. I hope Bravo is taking note that less of her is best (or none at all, remember leg from NY? 😀)

    Lovely moments with all the wives and their kids leaving the nest. Some more forced than others 😋. Kyle’s, although a lot of tears, it was real. I think so. It is so nice to see that, the whole family was there. Porcha is so cute! I noticed the hotel too, i did not notice the name of it, but it looked like one i have been to.

    • kit9 says:

      Kyle was holding it together pretty well(for her)until she saw Alexia telling Portia goodbye. That was a killer! The resort was Ventana. Went to some parties there while going to UofA. Also, if some were wondering why they had a car take Alexia to school when they left, Ventana is long way from campus.

    • California35 says:

      Wow!! True? Either way, how embarrasing for Joanna and Brandi (if she knew what that is). She is not learning and asjusting her behaviour after so many she has offended with her blabber mouth and actions.

      Stars thanks for the ‘cap, haven’t watched yet but will read as soon as I do !

      • Powell says:

        I don’t like Joanna either. But if she can succeed in suing Bobble for something then like my mom says “I hope Bobble gets her drawz sued off.”
        Chismosa I’m better today. I started not feeling well again yesterday afternoon and asked my boss if I could work at home today and he said yes. Then we got s n o w last night so I would have had the option to work at home anyway.

        • PJ says:

          It’s just my opinion but I don’t believe this is a lawsuit that has much merit especially since Joanna has been pretty vocal about Brandi as well. However lawsuits like this have the ability to get interviews and press and can therefore raise public awareness of the people involved, as well as costing legal fees of course but then some people may have access to more funds than others. Hey if name calling and saying nasty things about people is actionable there are plenty of comments on blogs that do exactly that. But in order to get a money judgement you would have to prove damages and what they are you can’t just allege damages, you would also have to prove that the things said have no truth in them. Just my opinion but it seems like saying anything on this blog that even remotely comes off as a defense of Brandi is a cardinal sin. I don’t care for either of these women but then I feel the same about anyone who exposes themselves on national TV in this way so I’m really not a fan of any of the housewives.

          • Veena (NMD) says:

            Brandi didn’t call Jo a name, she stated things as fact – citing the source.

            I’m shocked Joanna didn’t get sued for what she said about Joe Francis and her sister on WWHL – Andy had to read a disclaimer in a later episode.

            I think it’s for publicity – but I think Brandi could be liable.

        • I like your spelling of that S word LOL

          Feel better 😷😷😷

      Does that photo of BeetTweets look familiar? 😉

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Maybe….

      • Powell says:

        YES. Bobble’s is a reunion. I think the one where she says to Kyle something about Kyle not acting like she supports Kim and after Kyle comment ed Bobble said “I’m sorry that’s how it looks to me”, or something like that. That pic looks like that particular scene.

  15. Next time if there are any Kyle waterworks on a particular episode – like maybe she’ll cry about her sister if things go downhill next week ….—–

    Can we get a screen shot of waterworks for the recap – Id love that and I’m THIRSTY for some 💧💧💧💦💦💦

    …….so from what some of you said yesterday – Kim is clinging to Brandi – and maybe bad news ahead for Kim (sad IMO as this season she’s been rather sweet and not incoherent…..and looks great!) ….
    So doing Brandi’s dirty work, she may be manipulated to fight against any anti-Bobbles …..until she sees the light 🔥🙌⛅️

    I hate to say but that comment the 👑Queen made doesn’t sound so cute, but hey everyone’s remarks can’t be perfect. I’m still a loyal lady of waiting/servant 💆

  16. HuskerHuny says:

    Last night’s epi . . .

    Kyle and Mo did make me shed a few tears. They do love their children.

    Kim’s friendship with Brandi will be toxic if not already.

    Yolo’s daughters are indeed privileged.

    Lisa R. is loud and the center of attention, but in a nice way.

    Lisa V. stick to your guns and make Max more responsible and please don’t compare him and Pandy. Biological or adopted, each child is their own self. My twins couldn’t be more different and their identical!

    Eileen I really enjoy watching her and her family. I like that she cooks and does play the traditional mother role even though she’s in show business.

    It’s going to be in the 40s and 50s for the next few days. Sure makes winter a few days shorter which is appreciated.

  17. Powell says:

    Watching Bobble’s 50th housewarming party and just noticed something. Funny how we pick up little things after we’ve watched 10 times. But I digress. Lisa R. says in her TH she’s so happy for Kim. Kim’s come a long way. Riddle me this. Well if she doesn’t know the backstory of what happened between Lisa & Bobble, how does she know Kim has come a long way? 😏

  18. It’s really her eyes (Mo’s),I agree with the commenter. The shots for maybelline look gorgeous.

    I love her rounded nose and pray she doesn’t go changing it like all the youngins do! I have a slightly roundish nose so I like that 👃lol

    I want the lipstick she’s wearing in the maybelline shot!

    Fashion police repeat is on-Kathy griffin is actually pretty quiet. Mostly because kelly Osborne won’t shut up. I never understood how she has any kind of fashion cred? I don’t see it! Nicole Richie would be better-if one co-host must have purple hair.

  20. I’m confused.

    Is Brandi getting $1000 per week or per month?

    • California35 says:

      Im Confused now too 😕😋

      I rememeber HER saying $1000 for groceries for the week or soemthing like that, but she is who said a week ( i do not know if she gets it per month, but she said it only covers her for a week).

    • Exit4 says:

      I wondered the same thing! I think it’s a month? Someone who listens more closely could tell us!

      • Phew thanx ladies- thought I was losing my mind.

        So…if it’s $1000 per month? C’mon that’s bullshit and she has every right to complain. I can see spending $250 per week on food with 2 kids. I’m by myself and I spend about $100 per week on groceries, no booze, no pizza nights.

        I have a good friend that’s divorced from her accountant husband and she gets $3K per month. 2 kids about Brandi’s kids age.

        $1000 per week? She needs to hush up.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          If it 1k a month we still have to take into account that they have shared custody-she only has them for 1/2 month-it still doesn’t seem like a lot but she’s working and making money herself-maybe more than he is making since she can’t stop saying what a shitty out of work actor he is!

          • But child support includes more than food. That’s only 12K per year.

            And yeah- right now she is making more than him according to another site. But so what?

            They’re his kids. She has at least partial custody.

            I know a guy who is a landscaper, maybe 40 K per year. He pays $1200 per month for 1 child.

            I’d be pissed off too.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              OMIB-I don’t understand the “so what” to her making more money than him? If she makes more and they split custody than shouldn’t she be paying him? Why would he pay her if she makes more? They’re her kids too.
              (Totally not trying to poke you just trying to understand!! )

              • It’s not like alimony.

                There are fixed childcare, healthcare, and other expenses (sports equipment, club fees etc.) that a court takes into account.

                If all men wouldn’t have to pay chid support if the mother makes more $$$ than them, there would be a huge surge in unemployed fathers. Just sayin.

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  I don’t understand that-if the woman makes more than the man why would he pay? Because she’s the mother? They share custody so he is paying no matter what-but to give her more when she makes more-that doesn’t make any sense to me.

                  • Exit4 says:

                    I know they take both salaries into account. His ex has sole custody-that matters a little. Plus who claims my niece on their taxes (his ex does) and who pays healthcare for her. My BIL used to, but now she does because her benefits are better. They split dance classes and all that up separately. Right before my BIL got married-his ex wanted $1000 so my niece could go to Disney for a dance competition. He said no. She was not pleased. But she’ll never take him to court except for their annual reviews. She did once when a friend told her she could get more $ (they originally had their own agreement). They actually gave her less because she wasn’t in daycare anymore. She was bitter!

                  • I guess I just feel like it’s the price if admission. The court determines the % of $$$ that the noncustodial parent should pay, and IMHO the custodial parents income should have nothing to do with that amount.

                    When my divorced friend lost her job and her unemployment ran out- she was unable to get more child support from her ex husband, why should it be the other way around if she out earned him? That his payments should go down?

                    Gotta pay to play.

            • PJ says:

              I think she said per month–not positive. My husband paid that much for his two children 20 years ago and he also paid for their health insurance and all copays plus extras. My husband is a builder. If it’s per month it’s not enough and I think it’s a disgusting amount to pay, and I don’t blame her one bit for being angry about it. That maybe covers their food and nothing else. Child support is also to help pay all living expenses and both parents have to maintain a house for the children to live in, split custody does not change this.

        • Exit4 says:

          My BIL pays $600+ A month for his daughter and doesn’t make a lot of money. Eddie would more then triple my BILs salary with a 2 episode guest arc on a sitcom. So, I’ll deduce it’s $1000 weekly? Then again it’s brandi and she kinda lies a lot!

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            My brother pays way more 1000 a month for his 2 girls and he’s a carpenter-I’m thinking there is no way Eddie only pay 1000 a MONTH-it doesn’t make sense!

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

              That’s cash. He probably pays 100% of their school and activities and health care.

              • T-Rex says:

                According to information previously “puked out for cash to the tabloids”, he pays for their schooling, their sports, and their healthcare since she has clearly stated she doesn’t have any herself. He has them almost 60% of the time as well.

              • plainviewsue says:

                By the way Rebecca, we finished Boyhood tonight. And you were absolutely right. Absolutely nothing happened! I do have to commend the filming over 12 years and watching the people grow up. But other than that, no way should it win best film.

            • PJ says:

              I haven’t heard Eddie or Leann disputing this.

          • PJ says:

            If Brandi is lying about this I believe Eddie and Leann would come out publicly and dispute it. Eddie doesn’t say much publicly but Leann does and Eddie has come out publicly before about financial issues. Their silence speaks volumes.

  21. Stars – thanks for the blog! Have a good day Lynnfam peeps!

  22. shamrockblonde says:

    thanks for the recap Stars! – I am liking Eileen – sorry Stars!! – and Lisa R – I actually tried saying “red leather yellow leather” really fast – its easier to type it…when Kyle was bemoaning not having gone to college, Katie, my Granddaughter, immediately said – to the tv – “so go back – you can go anytime, and you have the money – it will keep your mind off missing your daughter! it’s not like you can’t ever go!” – at that point, Kelly, her sister chimed in with “you can do it Kyle! – your smart!! – a pain maybe, but smart!!” they also left the second bobble appeared on the set – I

    as for Lisa V’s comment – not a very good one – I am guessing that she is referring to the fact that her son is adopted and perhaps wonders if genes have anything to do with his laziness – he does appear a bit lazy – I’m glad that she used tough love with him – and he and Pandora are very different – including their approach to life and their work ethic – what worked for Pandora clearly will not work Max and as a result they need to be treated differently – my older daughter – I had to practically chain her to her desk in her room to get her to even look at homework – – they were completely different – as are the twins – like Husker, mine are identical too, and yet are completly different in approach to just about everything – as a result they are handled a bit differently – I hope he finds himself – for himself –

    my sister told me that after my parents dropped me off at college, that my Mom cried almost the entire ride home – she did not cry in front of me, instead telling me that I was going to be fine and that it would be a great adventure – that she loved me and was proud of me and to write and tell her all about my classes, and my new friends – while I was away at school, my Mom, who went to college at night while we were growing up and got her degree, went back and took classes in French and some of my other classes in order to help me with my schoolwork – did the same with my sister and my brother –

    • T-Rex says:

      That’s so funny, I went to school an hour from home, so dropping me off was no biggie, they knew my ass would be home the minute I ran out of clean clothes! Our school had the “meal plan” so food was in the tuition and dorm fees. I think I got a whopping 25/bucks a week of spending money. When my sister went to school she was five hours away and no one cried, they were thrilled she was going to college. NOW when baby boy “perfectchild” went to school 1500 miles away, I thought my mother was going to need to be sedated! She cried the whole way to drop him off to school and the whole way home, and my dad took the scenic route so took a couple of days to get home! I also get the whole being compared to a sibling crap too, and we are all biological in our family, my mom says that they truly regret doing that to us when we were in our teens and early twenties, it made for a rocky relationship with my mother and I for a number of years, we are good now, but when I met my husband we were not in a great place. My dad and I were always good, but he didn’t rub in our faces the sibling crap! I really hope TheRoyalVPump stops that crap, it’s not helpful!

      • Powell says:

        LOL T-Rex your mom was thrilled when your sis went to college but you thought she’d need sedation when your bro went. Too funny. 😆

        • T-Rex says:

          Oh, we STILL talk about that today, in fact it was brought up during the holidays when there was a bit of a “tiff” between my two siblings, sort of a mom-loves-you-better kinda crap! This didn’t involve me so I got to just watch this one from the “sidelines”, LOL!

      • shamrockblonde says:

        when I was in high school we had the option to leave campus during our lunch period, but we had to get a permission slip signed in order to get that privilege – well I brought mine home and my parents refused to sign it – they knew that I would not return to campus after my lunch period – they were right – my sister two years later had the same option and my parents signed hers right away – they knew she would not abuse it – they were right again – she did not – never bothered me – mostly I didn’t like that my parents were smart enough to figure that out!! silly me!!

      • kit9 says:

        UofA had a meal plan when I was there and the food was really good and had cafeterias and restaurants all over campus where you could use your card. As for Lisa, I was shocked when she called Max, “a different animal” from Pandy, her and Ken and then suggested genetics could be the reason. Also talking about how Max might be in competition with Jason- which made me think of Jason and Pandy’s engagement party, when Lisa said she loved her SIL more than her own son, Max. She said she was just joookkkinng but it was awkward.

    • Powell says:

      Shamrock as an reading I like “she can to college”. Yup she certainly has the money.

  23. SoutheastVA says:

    RHOA tea – The board discussed the other day Nene’s comment to Claudia stating something like “No one in ATL is checking for you…half breed.” Claudia didn’t bat an eyelash to that statement. I hated Nene’s “diss” and was perplexed because I had never heard her talk about people’s heritage before. I don’t recall her slinging racially charged barbs at Kim or any light skinned black woman on the show (am I wrong?) I was reading a few reality sites where people were clamoring for Nene to apologize. A day later several bloggers uploaded footage of Claudia referring to darker skinned black people in a derogatory way. A few years ago, Claudia playing host to a Black party spoke about “all the dark skinned blacks in black that she couldn’t see and how she could only see the ‘BEIGE’ people like herself AND I (Claudia) really didn’t think it was a good idea with all these Black people walking around cause black on black it’s hard to see AND Everybody else I (CLaudia) only see teeth and eyes. So whatever….” Apparently several people in the ATL have issues with Claudia over these comments and that was what Nene was referring to. I think both of them should apologize for the filthy comments. I’m not sure Kenya will like these type of comments as she is on the darker side of beige.

    Claudia also insulted someone who was supposed to be her friend at the time, TIny. Tiny is the wife of rapper TI and they have a show on VH1 called “Family Hustle.” She was also one of the members of the female singing group Escape. This is the successful group Kandi was in and they are very close. Tiny was also one of Kandi’s bridesmaids. A few years ago Claudia worked on Jamie Foxx’s Sirius radio show “The Foxhole”. They were discussing Tiny’s husband TI and Claudia said that Tiny escaped the pretty gang, she asked Jamie if he’d be with Tiny, she called Tiny a pig (snout like nose) and she agreed that Tiny is a waste of light skin because she’s not attractive. She also said that Tiny has downs syndrome with 37 chromosones (based on her looks). I guess this audio re-surfaced in light of her new found notoriety on RHOA. On the Rickey Smiley morning radio show today, Claudia “apologized” to her friend. She dissed Tiny a few years ago and she’s just now apologizing. Tiny responded on twitter with “I saved that hoe @claudiajordan face from falling off! Passed around slut! She Mad I got a man & she can’t keep.”

    Also, Claudia is being called out online keeping the Porsha and the Africa prince rumor alive. Stories suggest that they all knew that Porsha was dating LeShean McCoy of the Philadelphia Eagles. He even said it on ESPN. One of the reasons, Porsha’s peach was taken was because she would film her life with her boyfriend. It was his choice to not film. I think that was wise of him.

    I get making your mark to stay on the show. But, you can’t hurl insults and lies and think your past statements won’t be checked. Lame.
    (I’m tired of typing. I don’t know how you bloggers and recappers do it. I tip my hat to you. Thanks for the work you do on this site.)

    • IMHO, Claudia is a bi racial woman trying to work out her own racial issues. Her comments were pretty bad. But NeNe’s were too.

      No one wins.

    • Hey SEVA—
      That’s crazy …… I mean all these reality stars should know that crap from ANYTHING in their past comes back …..

      Tiny though ……😁
      I just hate when women do two things: use age or use the “husband” angle.
      Insult looks all you want — i IMHO don’t care – it’s genetic lottery or your WALLET (Kim k) – but the age and husband thing burn me. 🔥 that’s just me though

      Everyone and their dog knows TI and Tiny were on the verge of splitting up. And Tiny clearly has issues with her own looks to have her EYEBALL CUT UP and have a REMOVABLE iris put in in the acclaimed hospitals of ……Africa!
      I cringe …. My eye was cut open years ago, but for vision – not to get silver eyes because I just didn’t like my eye color !

      Thanks for the gossip 🙂

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      Thanks for the juicy info. Yes, whilst Nene’s comments were horrendous, it seemed more like an undertone that only Claudia would know–makes more sense.
      Why is Claudia even on this show if she’s not married? I don’t like Demetria either. But I guess this show is working somehow since the ratings are through the roof.

      • SoutheastVA says:

        The information about Claudia’s past comments put in context (for me at least) why Claudia did not respond to the horrendous name Nene called her.

        I wouldn’t make it on these shows. I can be sarcastic without realizing it and I can’t stand stupid or ignorant ish.

        IRT Demetria’s stylist and Phaedra, I don’t think he has the best eye for style and what works on Demetria’s body. I’ve seen her look great on shows. But the only outfit I liked on her since she debuted on RHOA, is the one Phaedra complimented him on. I think he needs to take several seats, a clothes rack and a shoe horn.

    • Powell says:

      SoutheastVA you almost typed a blog. 🙂
      Well, well, well. That’s very good tea. Claudia should be ashamed. Just because she went there doesn’t mean NeNe needed to go there. I guess that’s why NeNe is acting like she barely knows Claudia and why when Porsha first spoke to NeNe about her NeNe said “Yeah I know if her. The thirst is real.”
      Tiny is a cute little lady. She and T.I . have some adorable kids. A few mths ago Tiny had a surgery on her eyes to change her eye color to gray. The procedure isn’t proven in the US. She said she wanted lighter eyes so she researched the procedure and had it done.

      • SoutheastVA says:

        Hi fellow DMVer. I think Tiny and Ti’s family is adorable as well. I hope they can keep it together. I feel bad that Tiny felt the need to do something so drastic to her eyes. I’m not against plastic surgery per se. But, meesing with your eyes is next level. I can barely put Visine in my eyes.

        • Amber...Real Wife says:

          Great tea SoutheastVA. A few days ago I also pointed out that Claudia called Omarosa’s mother, who is dark-skinned, a ‘Monkey Faced Bitch’ after a fight on the BET red carpet. Check from 1:08 on

          • Right! I saw that too! Wow! That’s pretty low to go after someone’s mother.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              Well now all of his explains why Claudia wasn’t initially upset with NeNe’s comment-Andy kind of had to talk her into being offended and so did half of twitter. When you speak about people the way Claudia does being called a “half breed” isn’t as insulting as one would expect.

          • Powell says:

            Not nice at all. Omarosa is another one I don’t like.

          • SoutheastVA says:

            I’m sorry if no one disagrees but this is worse than anything Nene has said, ever. To call someone’s mother a monkey faced bitch is the most hateful. The black community truly understands the undertones of what being called a monkey entails. Claudia looks like my family but we are not “mixed”. So, I never knew she was mixed until she said so. (this is delicate so don’t throw stones at me) To be called a monkey by a non-mixed black person is reason enough to go at it. But, for a non-black or mixed person to do so…….she should be glad Omorosa found the Lord.
            Note: I’m not a Nene fan…she’s too full of herself , mean and ungrateful.

            • Amber...Real Wife says:

              I agree. It wasn’t subtle at all. Comparing her to a monkey was not nice and it showed more of who Claudia really is. Even if she substituted it with ‘ugly’ or ‘old’ it would have been “BETTER” than that word. Still offensive but not racist or elitist.

            • “Omarosa found the Lord “—- omg Lol’ing …..

            Wow. Claudia is disgusting for saying that. What’s wrong with these women?

        • Powell says:

          Messing w/your eyes is just crazy. It took me quite a while and years of them perfecting lasik surgery before I even considered it. My mom had lasik on one eye and I went ahead and had two exams done to see if I could get it but alas my astigmatism is a bit*h so I’m unable to get it. I am too scared of going blind to do something crazy w/my eyes. If you get breast implants you can take them out but if you do crazy surgery on your eyes it can’t be reversed.

          • Powell I had the one slightly higher-level than lasik called PRK —
            Best thing I ever did in my life.
            I was a “perfect” candidate for it at the time, as I was nearsighted but not horribly.

            We trust our eye doctor like no other !
            We flew my 90+ yr old grandmother into the country to see just HIM because we trusted him so much.

            So my point —
            My brother then went on to have the PRK, then my mom wanted to but she had astygmatism. He still did it because he’s AMAZING.

            I know sooooooo many people who have done the cheapo quick LASIK stuff and that is so so so immensely scary to me.

            For me, you don’t mess with eyes – nor teeth.

            I had to ask how much he is out of pocket because if I want to see him before i move anywhere – I demand only to see him!
            His waiting list used to be about 8 months long but it’s not as bad anymore.
            I’m so nervous if/when he ever retires ! 😲😫

            PRK was the bomb.com
            Good LASIK by a great surgeon should be fine too. Astygmatism and all.

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        I can’t help but think the half-breed comment went further than Claudia’s flippant past remarks about dark-skinned women and glorifying light skinned women. First off she doesn’t ‘LOOK’ like she’s mixed. She appears to be an attractive AfricanAmerican woman and has to claim her Italian heritage aloud for us to know. Aside from her early neighbors in NewEngland I highly doubt she was mistreated because she’s ‘Bi-Racial’. She’s most likely hated NOT because she’s mixed or beautiful but because she’s a bitch. A known homewrecker and schemer… yeah she’s a perfect addition to the cast.

        During the discussion she had already talked about NeNe’s ‘EDGES’… the fine hair at the beginning of the hair line oft called ‘BabyHair’ . She was shaking her hair in the classic ‘I have hair and you don’t’ manner, and if she made reference to her having ‘GOOD HAIR’ maybe that’s why NeNe went with the “No one is checking for you half-breed” comment. Not excusing but never heard NeNe call Kim a ‘white bitch’ or make any derogatory color comments about dark-skinned girls like Kenya, Peter, Phaedra and Kandi.

        In my opinion… Claudia is a bi-racial girl who thinks she’s lighter than she actually is. She’s got course hair and is darker than many full blooded AfricanAmericans but because she’s half white she thinks she’s beige. Um No. She must have been mindphucked because whites think she’s too black for white and blacks think she black enough yet keeps shouting how white she is. LOL OOOHHHH CHILE… What a way to go.

        Besides these comments there have been confidantes who say that ClaudiaJordan believes herself to be white and talks disparagingly about blacks. Not sure on the first part but the second part… I believe it.

        • SoutheastVA says:

          You summarized neatly my opinion on Ms. Claudia. I think she creates the “the black girls don’t like me” drama because I don’t think anyone would know she’s mixed, or cares.

          • Amber...Real Wife says:

            Bingo and There You Go! She’s got a quick mouth and shoots off without thinking. Couple that with her man-eating past and i wonder how the hell is she going after Porsha and her ‘African’ when she’s been a known homewrecker linked to married men actor, MichaelJaiWhite and the elderly radio man TomJoyner. She’s got big balls but maybe these girls hadn’t googled her past, especially if they didn’t know she was COMING for them. tsk tsk. They were unprepared.

            • Did Meany meat Gregg when he was married ?? And she was on the pole 💈?

              So only cynthia and kandi like legit met their men? Just wondering

              • Amber...Real Wife says:

                LOL That pole is a Barber’s Pole was NeNe working at a BarberShop too? OMG did we just come up with a million dollar new concept… “Honey give me a few hundred bucks i’m gonna get a haircut…” #StrippersNFades #HairCutzNLapDances #BootyPoppingBuzzCutz

                They say that Greg and his wife were already splitting or had split when he met NeNe. Divorce was not finalized. The kids don’t blame NeNe for the break-up so i’m gonna say they knew the divorce was coming.

            • SoutheastVA says:

              Yeah, they were not prepared. She prepared by reading up online before joining. I’ve seen some of her quips on line before. Best believe, the girls will be ready for her when the reunion rolls around. The library will be open with all the reading that will take place. Also, I think Demetria should get ready. Phaedra usually will quip a little here and there. I know for sure we have not seen the full brunt of “the read” PhaePhae can unleash with her lawyerly training. We got a glimpse when she got Ms. Kenya together on the last reunion irt the fertility clinic. She shut her up.

              • Foxymel(Mel) says:

                Oh dear. With these videos surfacing showing Claudia being a straight up bitch–reunion will be he’ll for her and Demetria. Phaedra is waaaay too quick on her feet than most people. So I think these new girls should tread lightly at the reunion. Imo

        • Good points —-
          Thank you for explaining edges …… I never “got it”

          Thought it’s the end of the hair.

          I think if her mom was Scandinavian or Polish or irish – (Halle Berry, Mariah) – she would look lighter – I agree I wouldn’t immediately know she was biracial. I do think she’s stunning unlike every single biracial person supposedly is – and I didn’t know that wasn’t her hair! On WWH – that hair was gorgeous. Didn’t know. Wow
          Then again i didn’t know Halle Berry wore a weave until I just saw in a magazine right now !

          She’s like a melissa Gorga (tanned) or those Mowry twins – because the 1/2 italian is actually darker italian -maybe more southern italian than north / Sicily, etc.

          I’m just enjoying anyone putting Mean-y down a bit. She makes flippant remarks but it’s jokes and all fun when it comes from her …. With the “no face work done ” except the nostril thing. Puh leaze Mene.

        • Foxymel(Mel) says:

          I agree Amber! I didn’t know she was bi-racial (don’t care otherwise) until I saw her mom was Italian and she said her dad is African American. She just seems really ignorant to me.

  24. VV™ says:

    Kim wrote another blog. She must sense there will be backslash from next week episode.

  25. lila1star says:

    Hi everyone–great blog as usual. The reason I so look forward to your blogs and what separates you from the rest is your witty and intelligent commentary as you write. Love it! Off topic ? Are you still blogging CA?

    Ok–on topic–poor Kyle–I feel for her but I am at an age where in the past 2 years I am sending off grandkids to college. I would encourage Klye to go back to school–I went back at age 32 to finish my degree that got put off due to marriage and having a baby.
    I am a Lisa V fan but wish she would not do that to Max–Im sure him and Pandy where raised the same and thus Lisa doesn’t understand his lack of motivation and it maybe in the genes–my daughter is lazy (hate to say it but its true) and her father (my ex) is lazy–that whole family is known for their laziness–in fact my pastor told me not to marry him because of it–can u imagine? If only I had listened but then I would not have the wonderful daughter and 5 grandkids. One thing is certain–my daughter is a super mom and she had 4 teen girls–each 2 yrs a part.

    I think Brandi gets 1000 a week. My friend gets a 1000 per month and kids are no longer at home. Given they are no where near the Brandi & Eddie finances. BTW–Brandi leased that car and was only required to pay 3000–she was asked that ? on WWHL.

    But the BH kids at school get really nice allowances. I am on a fixed income since my savings became depleted after the Lyme and I kicked out hubby number 2 after 26 yrs. ( I have this bad tendency of men who don’t like to work and when I was able I worked 3 jobs and was addicted to work–i loved it and really miss it. I expected to work till i dropped dead! The point of all that is I just sent off granddaughter #2 with a care package of peanut butter, cereal, crackers etc…Plus this girl works her butt off during the summer–I live in a tourist area–maybe some have heard of Wisconsin dells. Each month I try to toss a few dollars her way as she is on a full scholarship and has a full schedule. All the GK seem to have my work ethic–thank the Lord!

    Is Kim really falling off the wagon? I wonder if this has anything to do with the Brandi-Kyle thing?
    OK–I wrote a book again and shared probally more than anyone wanted to know lol.

    • I think Kyle should TOTES go back and get her degree.

      But, reality tv is calling ……

      Yes IMO there’s a brandi vs kyle being set up and brandi vs lisaLips

      therefore: bbbb against them ALL and goodbye to Brandi next season !

    • Powell says:

      LOL love your books lila. 🙂 I was thinking what you said. If you didn’t marry Mr. Lazy you wouldn’t have your daughter and your GKs. 🙂

    • kit9 says:

      Oh, joy! Brandi has graciously dropped a new podcast today.

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Wow, Lilastar – I appreciate your kind comments… Yes, I am blogging CA – but since it airs on Monday nights – and they changed it to 2 hours long – I can’t stay up all night on Monday night and then turn around and be any good to do it again on Tuesday night for RHOBH… So I’m trying to get some rest today… and I’m hopefully going to compete CAs blog in time for tomorrow morning’s publication. Thanks so much for your interest!

  26. So in the lawsuit that Jianna filed against Brandi? It actually states that Brandi said Joanna’s p*ssy smelled.

    Lol! You cannot make this shiz up.

    http://www.lifeandstylemag.com/posts/joanna-krupa-suing-real-housewives-star-brandi-glanville-see-the-document-49485

  27. She looks too thin now. her neck is all ropey. I think she can use some 5-10 lbs
    I like her smaller boobs ….
    This thin + spiky hair is making her verrrrry lollipop head – bad look. And not healthy.

    Can someone explain to me — she says she removed the lip implant ? But she looks the same and it’s still distracting on screen …..

    Hi everyone..belated .happy new year Love love love this blog..but I don’t get the blank posting from many of you upstairs .. What’s up with that or is it just me on my new mini iPad lol

  29. Great Blog again Stars!!! I actually felt sorry for Kyle last night when they showed the preview…Kim had that “look” and I am sure it just broke Kyle’s heart….The scene with Mo and Kyle talking about the money….SERIOUSLY??? I don’t care how much you give her but you wait until you are dropping her off to figure it out????? You don’t have the account already set up for her????? You haven’t discussed this with her prior to moving her to another state?????????? So ri-dic!!
    I said on the last blog, last night, that the only contribution Brandi made was a scene with her lawyer talking about Eddie and a scene of her watching Eddie and Leanne’s show……and there she is bad mouthing both of them, for her kids to see……shame on her!

    • Powell says:

      Yeah PrincessP. They didn’t already have an account set up? Some wealthy people just give their kids money.

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Thanks, Tiara… Yeah, I’ve been trying to figure out why on earth they were talking about money at this point… It doesn’t seem consistent with Kyle’s planning, either… I would have thought she would have thought through potential expenses, etc… but then again… They are probably an ATM to their daughter… Fortunately, Alexia seems to be be pretty well adjusted… Perhaps with that money she’ll hire someone to do her laundry (dang… should have used that in the blog…lol)

    • VV™ says:

      This is the second daughte to leave for college. Farrah was gone for two years. Even if Producers asked them to talk about it. They could’ve related it to Farrah’s. It would’ve been more believable. Moe spending a lot of money lately. I hope he’s not just throwing money left and right.

  34. Bobble Head’s blog is up, sounds like the publicist wrote it – yawn.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      She dumb for letting somene else write her blog…it’s so obviously NOT her. Does she have I put-maybe.
      One thing I don’t understand is why she didn’t know if her kids were going to be on Eddies show or not? Wouldn’t she, as their mother have to allow for this to happen? She think we are as dumb as she is! If my kids were filmed for a TV show you gotta bet your ass I’m going to know about it long before it ends up on TV!! So is she lying or is she so dumb…take your pick-both answers are right!!

      • California35 says:

        Her never ending story line…

      • nyc mama says:

        Why pick as you stated both are correct. A blog of excuses,and justifications She, again, took no responsibility for her actions or words.or continued bad behavior and played the I do it all for my kids card.

        Stars…great blog. Thank you

        • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

          Thanks, NYC Mama… I’m shocked, shocked, SHOCKED that one of the housewives isn’t taking responsibility for their actions…lol

      • PJ says:

        She should know of course but it isn’t a given that she would know.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          How would she not know?

          • PJ says:

            If they didn’t tell her, which I could see happening.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              Legally how would that be possible and why wouldn’t her kids tell her? I can’t see her actually not knowing-she would have to sign something no?

              • Exit4 says:

                She would definitely know. They share custody and eddie wouldn’t sign off on the kids being on RHOBH. So if eddie has to sign off on BH-she’s have to do the same per their agreement.

                • PJ says:

                  I don’t believe this was part of “their” agreement because her children were on an episode of BH. This was something Eddie made an issue of AFTER the divorce.

                  • Exit4 says:

                    Like Simon Barney, he chose after their divorce and final custody arrangement that the kids could not be part of the show. If Brandi had sole legal custody-eddie would have zero say in this. If eddie has sole legal custody, he could have them on his show and Brandi would have no say. Since neither one of them actually have had their kids in their shows (other then photos) that tells me its shared legal and you can’t get around it. Brandi knows, she’s playing the sympathy game.

                    • PJ says:

                      I’m sorry but we have to disagree on this. They would both have a say no matter what the custody arrangement, but it would have to be taken up in court if they disagreed. Custody does not dictate parental rights unless a parent were to lose custody all together. Eddie used the kids to promote his show despite his objections to her having the kids on BH, so it is believable that he might try to use the Kids in the show.

              • PJ says:

                The kids are not on any of her shows because Eddie won’t allow it not because Brandi made it an issue, but Eddie did allow his children to be used in the opening credits and/or promos of his show, right. I saw clips of the kids in promos for the show, so the children were used to promote the show. If it isn’t an actual legal order then they could use the kids and wait for Brandi to make an issue of it knowing she would have to go to court over it. I read that the kids were filmed for this show and then edited out, now whether or not this is true I can’t say. I also read that there was so much Brandi bashing that it had to be edited out.

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  They edited out the Brandi bashing? Why? Maybe they show would have been renewed if they left it in. Brandi has 2 best sellers bashing her ex-what’s good for the goose…..

  35. California35 says:

    Watching WWHL – Lisa R said that she works ou SIX times a week and is very careful with what she eats. There you go, I am glad someone asked how she keeps her figure. I said last night that she is so small, she IS. She looked even smaller at WWHL, but she is sooo toned too. Dicipline. She does not look skinny like others in BH.

  36. Angela Bassett looks like Naomi Campbell ! 😳 on wendy

    She looks so different on AHS …..

    Don’t ask how this happened, but I watched The Bachelor and found myself sucked into it. I’ve never watched before. I can’t keep my eyes off this gorgeous guy and a few of the girls are even more stupid than Brandi.

    • California35 says:

      Good for her. Finally AND BEFORE it gets more physical…. Kyle was clearly concern with KIM, Brandi had no business getting involved. Of course is is also clear taut Brandi was drunk.

      • PJ says:

        Kyle was so concerned she invited her sister to a wine tasting, very bad form.

        • kit9 says:

          When did Kyle invite her sister to a wine tasting?

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Kyle didn’t invite her sister to a wine tasting she invited her to lunch-she didn’t know it was a tasting-she thought it was a lunch that would have a wine pairing. I’m sure Brandi will be tweeting about Kyle inviting Kim to a wine tasting b/c that fits Brandi’s idea that Kyle doesn’t care about Kim-only Brandi cares about Kim…

      • kit9 says:

        Oh, that is so infuriating. Brandi was freaking body checking Kyle! And, Brandi’s idea of being supportive of Kim’s sobriety is to ignore when it’s clear Kim is using, as she has before–she doesn’t really give a rat’s about her.

        • kit9 says:

          It’s been a long time since I went to school there but when I was there, rush was before school started and that’s when we saw her there in the episode. I didn’t go home in between but then I couldn’t afford to. lol.

          • Exit4 says:

            They always do rush before school starts in the south. Up here they do it fall or spring. Delaware changed it to spring only-they didn’t want first semester freshman rushing. They’ve diluted the Greek system there-it was always disliked by the school itself.

    Re Kyle and college: I don’t think she regrets not getting a degree as much as she regrets living on a campus for 4 years and the sorority life, parties, and dating.

    Re Brandi and her boys: Didn’t they appear at a pool party in the 1st or 2nd episode Brandi first appeared in? Maybe not very closely on camera, but I seem to recall a minor casino when one of the boys needed to take a squirt so he just found some bushes and watered them, much to the consternation of the HW moms who never had sons.

    In other news, I brought Roomie home from the nursing home yesterday. He had Carpel Tunnel surgery before Exmas on his right wrist. He also has MS and since he uses his right hand for his cane to walk, his Dr decided he’d need some rehab and therapy before he could go home. Anyway, KatieCat didn’t notice he was back until 45 minutes after he got home (the furniture she naps/sulks/hides under isn’t transparent). The reception was mixed, she was torn between happy at seeing Dad back and fear from his new walker which she was afraid was a vacuum sweeper and needed repeated and thorough investigations. She seems to be better tonight, having spent some time napping on Dad’s bed with him.

    • Veena (NMD) says:

      Brandi’s kids were on with her for her first season. Eddie put a stop to that by her second season.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Her kids were with her but we didn’t see them-they filmed her and her kids were there but they weren’t filmed. She’s been complaining about it ever since. She says it would be sooooooo much easier if she could just bring them with her when she films as if every working mother brings their kids to work! She said finding a sitter when she film is so hard-really? Wtf does she think everyone else does when they go to work? She also thinks that if we see her with her kids we will know what a wonderful person and mother she is…She wants to use her kids to help her image and that’s probably why their dad said NO!!

    • ladebra says:

      I agree with KatieCat – a nap with Dad always makes things better! Glad to hear your roomie is doing better and back at home. Tomorrow is cake day 🎂 Can’t wait!

    I’m a long time visitor of this blog. I love it. This is only my second time commenting. I think Lisa negated much of her good parenting by sharing about Max in the way she did. Secondly, well this is just my personal experience seeping in. I guess the IMO overused storyline of kids going off to college being the most painful situation a parent can endure is getting to me. Sadly, I personally know many parents I my situation. It is not so uncommon. It’s been almost 5 years and I’ve done much to carry on with my life and force myself to be okay. Far worse than sending your child off to college is losing him to an unexpected death at 18 years old. Just months before he is scheduled to leave for college. I realize pain is pain. I’m not downing people for the immense sorrow they feel when one of their kids leaves home. I’m sure I am only attuned to this repeated storyline because I wish more than anything I too was waving goodbye to my son as I drove away. And he was waving back.
