Real Housewives of Melbourne Season One – Episodes Three to Six by Veena

group melbourne


As a review – our housewives are:

  • Gina Liano is a barrister who wears way too much makeup.  She tries to coordinate her thick streaks of eye liner with her purses.  She reminds me of a caricature of a barbie-hooker.  She tells us that both her sisters have fashion lines, and she loves things that are sparkly.  Think Barbie-Hooker-Jersey girl.  She says people seem surprised that she’s a lawyer (barrister), and when she’s wearing her barrister outfit she looks like a stripper dressing up as a judge.  She is a single mother of two and lives in Toorak, which is described as the Beverly Hills of Australia.  Gina has been dating a guy for 8 years, but he recently moved to Florida, and they’ve been apart for six months.
  • Lydia Schiavello is married to Australian architect Andrew Norbury. She is studying interior design and decoration at RMIT University.  They are a virtual Brady Bunch (not) with six children between them.  Lydia is strangely inappropriate, and lets out a continual string of sexual references to bondage, S&M, etc.  It’s just a little disconcerting when she jokes about stuff like that with her adult step-son, and I have no idea where that story line is going.  This couple loves to fly (he’s the pilot of their small plane) and heads off to ski every weekend.  Lydia and Gina have been friends for 8 years.
  • Janet Roach is a property developer. She is a mother of two adult sons and is recently divorced from her second husband who was 15 years her senior.  Janet has a Sonja Morgan (first season) vibe to her.  She’s very put together – never washes her hair at home – goes to the salon three or four times a week – and stylish.  Money doesn’t seem to be an issue (but is it ever when we first meet the ladies?).
  • Andrea Moss is a former New York City television journalist who now lives in Toorak.  She runs a plastic surgery and cosmetic medicine business, Liberty Belle Skin Centre, with her husband, Dr Chris Moss, who is the ultimate plastic surgeon in Australia for the rich and famous.  They have three young children (10,8, and 5) and up to five nannies at their beck and call.  How can you have “up to” five nannies – are they part of a nanny service club?  Andrea is really into product branding, so we see a lot of her at their works.  She is described as very well organized – which means she makes lists of things for everything.  The nannies have to follow her lists or they are OUT.  The lists are pretty detailed but basic, such as unpack the lunch boxes and hang up the school uniforms when the kids change into play clothes.  She thinks there is a market for her lists and plans to put them in a mommies who hire nannies book.  Really?  A market for that?  She isn’t returning for a Season Two of this show.
  • Jackie Gillies is a psychic – what we’d probably call a medium in the US; she is a portal for spirits.  She can also pick up on what will happen next. She is the wife of Silverchair drummer and Bento front man, Ben Gillies.  She introduces Ben almost in the same way Teresa introduced Juicy to viewers – it’s clear she loves, loves, loves him.  He’s absolutely adorable and funny, and loves, loves, loves her.  Jackie is just 30 and far younger than the rest of the group.  She’s also brand spanking new to Melbourne, having just moved there for the show – and doesn’t have a foot in the door in Melbourne society.
  • Chyka Keebaugh is the owner of three event companies, The Big Group, The Design Depot and Capital Kitchen.  She’s been married to her husband and business partner since she was 20, and has a Lisa Vanderpump business sense vibe.  She’s put together, bright, and determined to brand. She had two children, a daughter in the US, and a son still in school.

Episodes Four to Seven

In the mid-part of season one, and the housewives have moved from the forming (getting to know each other) stage of their relationship to the storming phase.  If history is to be repeated, they’ll remain in the storming part until the show is over – and never reach the norming where they learn to work together.  But the battle lines shift a little as each of the ladies takes a turn at hosting events.

First up we have parallel events as Lydia hosts Jackie and Andrea for a ski weekend at the Thredbo ski resort.  Lydia keeps talking about how she flies there all the time, but for some reason she made Jackie and Andrea fly to the “nearby” airport two and a half hours away and drive to the resort.  Neither of the ladies are skiers – Jackie has never been on skis in her life, and Andrea has only skied three or four times fifteen years ago – but I guess they were the only ones willing to try.  They probably spent more time picking out outfits from Lydia’s vast collection.  Jackie picked something bright and colorful and looked great; conservative Andrea went for the designer label, and looked boring  in black.  Apparently Lydia’s husband showers her with the latest ski gear from Europe.  I find it funny that dress designers even have skiware – I was always under the impression that name brands like Patagonia (PataGuici) would be better than Prada – but what do I know.  But really, this was just an excuse for Andrea to insult Gina behind her back, and she really lets loose, and although Andrea pretty much said the same stuff I observed about Gina’s caked on makeup and drag queen look, it was mean when she said it, but snarky when I said it, because I’m a hypocrite.  Oh – and Andrea’s closet is lame lame lame – not any bigger than any of ours.  We also learn that Andrea has never left her entire family for an overnight, and that her husband Andrew is very excited for her to be gone for a few nights so that he can party with the kids – and by party he means break out the chips and pizza because Andrea keeps him on a short leash.  Deep sigh.

The other group is with Janet as she prepares for her first date since her divorce. Janet says she’s too old to be a cougar and describes herself as a saber tooth tiger.  Her date is 35, she’s 55, and her ex husband is 70.  I guess she doesn’t have a type.  Chyka and Gina style her for the date, then stalk her – remember the scene where Jaq and Tree hid while Danielle had her fake date in S1 of Jersey – it was like that – only not because Janet’s date was real.  She brings him back to a fancy suite and gets her pipes cleaned, and the next day hosts a high tea for the two ladies to fill them in.  At that point the three at the ski lodge are downing shots excited after a day at the slopes, and give them a phone call to get filled in on Janet’s action.  Janet invites them all to her birthday party.

Birthday party.  The ladies meet for drinks (all except Lydia who is skiing).  Andrea and Jackie go off to the side to discuss how awful Gina is.  When they get back, Janet asks them what they were talking about.  Andrea asks the ladies a hypothetical question – if someone has something to tell you about your behavior, would you like to hear it?  Janet, Chyka and Gina say yes – if it was done discreetly and not in a group – so Andrea proceeds to school Gina on her behavior.  She accuses her of ruining Jackie’s housewarming party, and Gina points out that Ben was the first to bring up her issues with Jackie.  Playback shows she’s telling the truth while Jackie denies it.  Anyhow, Gina’s had enough and goes to the toilet to get out of the line of fire.  Janet goes as well because she’s done with that topic.  They have a little talk in the loo, but when they return to the table the other three are still talking about it, and Janet asks them to stop beating a dead horse.  Chyka points out that Andrea was guilty of doing just what she accused Gina of – disrupting a party over petty drama.  But all is not lost.  After a drink or two they head to a nightclub for gay/drag queen night and dance the night away.  Gina is in her element with the drag queens, and looks to them for make up and dress inspiration.  The club has a long line to get in, but the ladies breeze past – it turns out Janet’s son runs the place and her first ex owns it.  We see Ben table dancing with Janet – when did he get there?  He’s soooo cute.

There are also a montage of individual scenes cut into the group drama – the most interesting:

Andrea and some book guy are running a focus group with a bunch of working mothers.  Andrea presents her book idea and her lists – and they go over like a lead balloon.  She ignores their constructive feedback, and says they are just disorganized.  They basically tell her that she’s treating her nannies poorly, and making them take on a lot of the work either she or a housekeeper should take on.

Chyka and her husband Bruce go out for a romantic date.  It’s very very awkward  – he’s just not great on camera, but I’ll give him an A for effort.  After some very stilted small talk during dinner, he takes her to an amusement park to ride the merry-go-round.  He’s booked the entire thing just for the two of them – awwww.  And in another Chyka scene, she’s feeding her son and three friends after some sort of sports practice.  The boys are so well behaved and engaged as she serves them a gourmet meal.  The best part was when she sat down to eat with them.  She’s definitely getting the best edit.

Ben and Jackie also get a lot of camera time.  Ben is a natural, and I’m still crushing.  He’s just soooooo adorable and fun.  He hires an artist to work with Jackie on the label for their tequila/cocktail bottles.  The artist has sketched out a huge face in black and white, and lets Jackie loose with a bunch of paint and flowers to “modern art” it.  She goes nuts and it actually looks great.  They also have a scene where Ben has to sit on the bed while Jackie gets dressed up for a night on the town.  He tells us that it’s a pain to get her out the door, but once they are on their way she relaxes and has fun.  This couple is made for television – give them their own show.

There’s a scene where Lydia and a friend are buying art.  She settles on either a huge glittery brown bear, or a huge glittery black panther.  The panther is $45 k and the bear is $65 k.  I’d say both are statement pieces and kind of cool.

There was also a coffee date where Gina apologized to Jackie, and another one where Andrea talked shit behind Gina’s back about Gina talking shit behind her back.  Andrea is really getting the Jill Zarin edit.

Next group event tennis at Andrea’s beach house, which isn’t on a beach – but could possibly be near a beach.  The ladies are invited for a tennis match, and they all show up in their various outfits.  Janet looks chic.  Jackie looks rock and roll.  Andrea looks like she found her outfit in the back of her closet in the bag she had prepared for goodwill.  Andrea spends a lot of time telling us how impressive her beach house that is not on the beach costs.  She’s beginning to give off a Jill Zarin vibe.    The main drama is Gina shows up an hour late, and then spends an hour in the bathroom getting ready.  When she finally graces them with her presence she is wearing a cute tennis outfit and stilettos.  No one is impressed, and Janet is actually seething mad.  We also learn that Janet can not stand Lydia because she’s an air head, but this is the first time we’ve seen Janet really mad at anyone.  Andrea is also mad because she’s worried Gina’s stilettos will puncture her special tennis court.  I’m actually not sure why they waited for her, because there was only one court and they had to wait for the tennis pro.  It was more like a lesson than a match.  Andrea of course is almost a pro and shows off her backhand and spin, and Lydia is also pretty good, but is a really irritating teacher.  To top off the bad day, Andrea finds out that Gina has made a complete mess of her guest bathroom, with make up and spray tan smeared everywhere.

So the final event from in Melborne is a salsa dance lesson organized by Jackie. The ladies were told that they could bring partners, or they’d have partners provided for them.  None of the husbands except Ben showed up.  After the hot dance teacher and Janet slithered through the moves – she really is a Sonja Morgan sans the sloppy drunk part – the ladies all took turns.  Gina slithered over Ben a bit, and he looked embarrassed – but I don’t think Jackie is one bit insecure so all was okay.  Then they all got partners – Gina’s was about two feet shorter than her and 50 pounds lighter (and she’s not a big woman)- but she was a good sport.

Episode seven is the first part of the “away” trip for the ladies at a resort near Cairns Queensland.  I have no idea what time of year this is, but they have the entire resort to themselves, so I wonder if it was shoulder season and supposed to be closed – otherwise how could that possibly be arranged?  They fly to an airport – wait for Gina’s plane to arrive (why did she take another plane?) then helicopter over to the resort.  Tensions are still high between the ladies, and Andrea and Lydia get Janet riled up for a confrontation with Gina.  I’m not sure what Jackie’s angle is – she’s always there when they are griping about Gina, but she’s not egging them on or diffusing things – she’s just there.  Anyhow, they get through their first evening and the next day morning and afternoon without much drama, but a lot of behind the back bitching.  Janet tells Chyka a very emotional story about her youngest son being burned over 70 percent of his body and surviving.  Thank goodness he’s doing well now.  They also get a yoga lesson and some of them go for a walk along a nature trail.

At dinner the tranquility ends, when first Janet, and then Andrea and Lydia confront Gina about all their issues.  Janet’s issue was that Gina was late, and Gina explains that she had let production know she was running late but the message wasn’t passed on.  But then it became a feeding frenzy  – it was like everyone piling on Alexis on their away trip for OC – and Andrea in particular was livid.  It turns out that Gina sent an email to someone threating a C&D unless they stopped talking about a certain subject.  She cc’d Andrea and Lydia, and they thought it was a veiled threat.  Gina tells them they are stupid to think that – and the cc was just to let them know what was going on.  Andrea almost pops a vein as she goes after Gina, but Gina handled it well – got through the dinner – packed up her things – and left early the next morning without saying a word to any of them.  I will say that Chyka tried to put an end to it but Andrea and Lydia ignored her.  Jackie didn’t say much either.  Deep sigh.  I hate the gang up.  But I’m enjoying the show.


Real Housewives of Atlanta – Hello Mr Chocolate by RamonaCoaster

Apollo is taping himself and giving a message to viewers that he will be entering the penitentiary and he will hear from him shortly?  Dude!  You’ll be in federal prison!  You are not Lindsay Lohan!  Does 8 years seem like a short time?

Phaedra is dragging her own suitcases down a flight of steps of her hotel room where she stayed when Apollo went ballistic and greets her two bodyguards that are dressed like they are in the Sopranos.  Did Cynthia help cast these two? Oh, probably not because Phaedra is not getting along with Cynthia so she went to another casting company.  I guess the mother of Mr. President needs to take the service elevator and have a motorcade consisting of Phaedra’s white Mercedes because her life is in that much danger.  Phaedra accidently bumps her head on the door of the limo.  The two Soprano guys are nice enough to offer to take in the bags after they fake checked the house for security reasons.  Phaedra complains to her assistant that the house needs an exorcism because it’s all Apollo’s fault that the bad, crazy energy is in the house.  Phaedra wants to kill Apollo with her bare hands, embalm him, cremate him and flush him down the toilet.  She has clearly been thinking about this.  Aiden is upset and needs therapy because he is afraid that the cops will get Apollo.


Kandi and Todd are on the set of Kandi Koated Nights talking about their non-sex lives.  Todd has been so busy he hasn’t been able to cut his hair and has been growing an Afro.  He apparently also has been too busy to try to make a baby.  Kandi wants to go to therapy.  The business and the sex don’t seem to mix in their relationship.  They are unable to switch gears.  Kandi wears a bonnet to bed and it doesn’t turn Todd on so maybe leave the bonnet and the business out of bed.


Cynthia, Claudia and Kenya do a wine tasting with cheese and fruit at a restaurant.  I want to try some mango cheese.  Kenya mentions the craziness with Apollo turning himself in.  Cynthia has some gossip on the subject.  Always good to have Peter around for these moments.  I think that was the plan from the beginning.  He makes friends with the husband and boyfriend so he can get the dirt and then tell his wife so she can make the most of the information.  Too bad Peter wasn’t a female.  He’d do a better job as a housewife.  Cynthia tells them about the alleged text messages Phaedra received from Mr. Chocolate that Apollo found on her phone.  Kenya starts crying about how Phaedra called her a whore and meanwhile she was cheating on her husband with Mr. Chocolate.


Don’t you love how these ladies believe Apollo is telling the truth when it is convenient for them?  Pick a lie, any lie!


Phaedra is at home with her boys when the people from 1-800-EXORCISM come in to chase away the evil spirits.  The boys seem to find it interesting.  Phaedra feels the energy shifting in the house.


Cynthia tells Peter she is going to dinner with the girls.  Cynthia thinks she is neutral.  Not anymore sweetheart.  She is Team Kenya for now.  Cynthia brings up that Phaedra never apologized to Kenya for calling her a whore.  Peter brings up the allegations of Phaedra and Mr. Chocolate.  Todd knows the situation as well.  Peter is right when he says this information has nothing to do with them but Cynthia said if something similar was being said she would want to know.


Kandi visits Phaedra’s home to find out what’s going on with Apollo.  Phaedra tells him how aggressive he was.  Phaedra tells Kandi that she feels good that Apollo went to jail.  Phaedra does comment that Kandi has been absent and Nene has been calling Phaedra every day as a friend.  Nene has been a good friend and Kandi hasn’t. Kandi invites her to dinner with the girls so there can be more drama for the gossip fodder.


The ladies meet at a churrascaria.  Yum! All that roasted meat on a spit.  Who’s gonna get roasted tonight? Kenya flirts with the waiter and Porsha comments that it’s sad but now she can get as much tap water as she wants. Seriously, Porsha sounds like she is proud that she gets more for her efforts with the opposite sex. Nene is still wearing her blonde ramen noodle wig.  It may look awful but at least paparazzi can spot her a block away which is probably why she wears it.



Cynthia brings up the situation but she hems and haws like Alex from NY housewives.  (In my nasally Jill Zarin voice) Just say it, Cynthia! Say it!  Finally she spits it out that Phaedra is dating an African guy while she is married and Apollo has the text messages on Phaedra’s phone to prove it.  You can’t walk around Atlanta without tripping over an African man.  Phaedra brings up the Apollo’s text messages to Kenya was a lie. So if that was a lie then he lied about the Mr. Chocolate text messages.  Kenya jumps in because she has an axe to grind.  Kenya brings up Mr. Chocolate and when Phaedra asks who Mr. Chocolate is, Kenya says he is the man that Phaedra has been having an affair with. Phaedra gets up to lunge and swing her pocketbook at Kenya.  Did she put an anvil in there?  Porsha of all people gets up to stop Phaedra.  Phaedra asks someone to escort her out.  Porsha and Nene go with her.  Kandi follows after waiting a few moments.


Kenya screams that Phaedra has been calling her a whore for two years and it’s coming back to Phaedra.  Nene is angry as well.  Porsha says Apollo is willing to tear Phaedra down at whatever costs.

Any of these women, married or not, can easily be called a whore and have some lie made up about them.

Phaedra says the hens can cluck if they want to but she will take them into the slaughter house and chop their heads off if they need to.  Nene is screaming at Kenya about apologizing and waving a finger and saying “you’re right” and how they are going backwards.  Why do I bother writing what Nene is screaming about?  She is like a machine gun that shoots out words.

    • Veena (NMD) says:

      Looks like all 8 housewives got the Apple – no “friend” status for Ramona or LuAnn! They must have decided to stop playing games and bring it.

    • Veena (NMD) says:

      Hmmm- seems to be a whole lot of yelling and cursing, I hope there’s more to this season than them getting mad at each other while they are drunk.

    • TexasTart says:

      Thanks for the link Jill. For some reason my phone will not play that video. I looked for it on and could not find it. Why would they release a trailer like this through US mag and not their own website. And why does there need to be 8?! Five or six is plenty for this format IMO. Hopefully they are getting rid of ‘friend of’ statuses – that always seemed like such a crock…Luann should have held an apple ALL last year. If anyone finds a different link to the trailer, please post, I would like to see it!

      Good morning everyone. 😊

    • ladebra says:

      More drunk Sonya 😦 Hopefully not a lot of drunk Sonya with 8 of them to spread the drama.

  1. Orson says:

    I forgot to mention this on the last blog. About RHOM… when they mention how much stuff costs there, keep in mind that they use Aussie dollars, not USD, and the rate of exchange is different. And they’re metric there, not English units like we use.

    • Veena (NMD) says:

      Maybe they dub in with US dollars ……. jk

      • Melbourne-Aussie says:

        I wish, no they are talking Aussie dollars the exchange at the moment is 80c for every Amer. dollar. Life is a bit expensive here but we do have medicare, which I understand is what you guys would call National health care.

  2. chismosa aka/ Lisa VP is my imperfect savvy Queen & I love her for it so sh-ut it says:

    Veena just wanted to say I don’t know how you do with deadlines on recaps so normally I would love to offer to recap some of these — however timewise/ device-wise im always all over the place. I feel bad you need these and I am not in a great position to help !
    Plus my utter hatred for Snake🐍🐍Reza will color anything I would write. I’m not unbiased.

    I live for Melbourne- im besties with Gina- God there’s so much bravo crap coming on that I actually like …’s annoying me. 😠

    PS: vanderpump show fans — Kristen – the psycho? Was scheduled for tonight WWH and instead it’s two shahs, one of course the stupidsnake™ who said the f- word last season and caught NO grief from Andy/Bravo. Of course.

    Someone should see why kristen was not coming. Maybe they’ll blame “weather” – shahs are west coast too !

    • Wow you really hate Reza?

      IMHO- the most entertaining one of all…🐍🐍🐍

      • chismosa aka/ Lisa VP is my imperfect savvy Queen & I love her for it so sh-ut it says:

        After watching that season 1 reunion and the disgusting grotesque horrific way he attacked his semi- sister MJ – yup. Hate him. (Mj forgave but that’s because she has no backbone and no siblings and a disgusting mother so she’s perpetuating her cycle of life- so from that I started disliking MJ as well )

        Plus he got away with the F word last yr. unscathed.

        Plus the way he was with Mike last season.


        • Powell says:

          No I didn’t like the eff word nor his treatment of Mike and calling MJ a drug user, but he apologized to everyone & I think it was sincere. He can dial it back a notch but I think he’s ok for entertainment value.
          Yes MJ needs to stand up to her mother. She starts to then backs down.

  3. TexasTart says:

    Excellent recap, Ramonacoaster. I like how you very flatly state things you observe and it comes across hilarious….I can’t figure a way better to say that be almost tongue in cheek. Yeah, that’s it! This season started to lose me a few episodes back and your recaps are better than watching.

    Atlanta started to lose me because 1) I don’t like the energy the new girls bring – especially Claudia. 2) Every meal together is a stream of shouting insults. (Nene’s mouth IS a machine gun of words, good one) 3) Kandi is absurdly fake with the swinging from sex talk-having sex-babies wanted- not having sex. Good lord, Kandi has turned into a JOKE! 😕

    • Veena (NMD) says:

      I thought Claudia would be a good addition but she’s just mean – and she, Kenya, and Cynthia together are the mean girls club. I’m really not sure if I like any of them anymore – and it used to be my favorite franchise.

      ITA agree about RamonaCoater’s recaps – great job RC!

      • mrs peabody says:

        I don’t like those 3 either and esp Cynthia, in fact I can no longer stand her. She sure has changed, guess she was afraid of losing her peach.

      • Powell says:

        Yup those 3 are the mean girls club. And NeNe was right about Cynthia. Her eyes half closed trying to get out what she wanted to say. Cynthia is AGAIN doing “follow the leader”. At the reunion or on wwhl she said her 1st season viewers were saying she was quite, didn’t have much of an opinion. Well she still doesn’t. If it’s not Peter telling her what to say it was NeNe now it’s Kenya & Claudia. We shall see how the 3 of them will answer to this at the reunion. Will they believe that “Chocolate” is Phadera’s friend from way back or are they going to insist on believing Apollo’s text which Porsha also said Apollo is good at faking texts?
        I don’t get how Peter believes Apollo after his lies w/texts and what he said about Kenya?

  4. TexasTart says:

    Vanderpump Rules season finale tonight!

  5. Veena (NMD) says:

    Tuesday April 7 for RHONY premiere. Hmmm – who is gonna blog this one? Empress did it for us last year – but she’s no longer blogging.

  6. chismosa aka/ Lisa VP is my imperfect savvy Queen & I love her for it so sh-ut it says:
  7. Exit4 says:

    More drunk women screaming! Sonja claiming to have hung out “all the time” with JFK Jr., I’m sure that will go over well with Carole! Lol. Luann bringing guys back to their house-I hope it was a pirate. It didn’t look entertaining to me-which means I’ll watch it every week. 😉

    • TexasTart says:

      LOL and of course we have to watch so we can know what everyone is talking about and put in our 2 cents! Haha

    • Powell says:

      I’m tired of Sonja’s name dropping cuz that was her past as the wife of a Morgan. She just won’t move on from that. I guess she’s done w/saying “my yacht” “my chef”. She’s retiring that w/people.

      • I thought it was Diddy’s yacht?


        • Powell says:

          Previous seasons it was her yacht. Last season she threw in Diddy’s. 🙂

        • T-Rex says:

          Nope she said Diddy was on HER YACHT a number of times. Carole was already with her husband prior to DelusionaldrunkGreygardensSonja marrying John Morgan, and Anthony and John Jr. were very good and close friends, so again an untruthful statement from her. If this is how the season is going to go, I hope Bethenny hands her her proverbial ass on a stick(clink clink into the cussing jar), this season

    • T-Rex says:

      SHE DID NOT PARTY WITH JFK JR! UGH that bitch gets more Delusional and Grey Gardens by the minute!

  8. HuskerHuny says:

    I so hate to say this, but the Atlanta Mean Girls Club – Cynthia, Kenya and Claudia – are making me like Nene. Who in the world believes ANYTHING that comes out of Apollo’s mouth who is a proven liar? Granted, Phaedra has been caught in a few little lies, but Apollo is not now nor never to be believed. Cynthia took a major slide down the likeable scale last night. Kenya was her usual nasty self and Claudia sat there with that smirk on her face. Was so hoping that she would be a voice of reason and be able to battle Nene on her stuff. This show is nasty.

    • TexasTart says:

      It’s not making me like Nene – yet, but they could subtitle the entire franchise with “So nasty, so rude.” At least the ratings are reflecting a drop consistent with our complaints.

    • mrs peabody says:

      is that other girl that was there part of the cast now too?

    • Melbourne-Aussie says:

      I don’t understand, Mr Chocolate’s mistress is the most boring opinionated
      non-participating person on the show, She is so smug that I can’t and fast forward all her bits & that she is bestie’s with Nene & poscha says it all.
      Nene is more articulate than Cyn but she is mean all the time. Seriously is there nothing to enjoy in Atlanta (it looks like an amazing city)

    • Trashy T says:

      Dear Heavens, say it isn’t so! Nothing could make me like NeNe or Porsha for that matter. I really don’t like anyone on this franchise but I HATE NeNe and Porsha! This show is nasty.Over and out……

      A big thank you to all the recappers and I hope everyone is feeling better!

  9. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. I hope you had a nice weekend.

  10. TexasTart says:

    This is probably the same trailer, just posting this for the photo!

    • California35 says:

      So many things to say about this one lol I will just say, both equally unacceptable. Done for deffrent reasons yes, but both bad. And… Oh wait! I’ll stop right here 😜

    • jezzibel says:

      neither action is socially acceptable, but at least there was a reason for the wine glass being tossed in anger. While you have never given a justification for why you dumped wine on Eileen(and her being a soap opera star is not a reason). Brandi, You’re a sad pathetic, emotionally stunted mess.

    • Hold up ✋

      A glass of wine thrown is way stupid and immature.

      A SMASHED wine glass is very dangerous, and irresponsible. It would also get you ARRESTED in any place I go to in Boston.

      Brandi is an idiot. LisaR is a huge douchebag.


      • California35 says:

        No, you hold up!! 😠😋😜😜 hehehe

        Seriously about Lisa — What was that?? I was very confused! Reaching across the table to grab Kim, then the glass. That was really weird. Over what?! Yes kim insinuated something, but the reaction was so over the top.

        • Yup.

          Nodding head.

          Over reaction for sure. Hmmmmm….wonder why?

            I totally agree that Lisa R reaction was over the top and Brandi’s action was also.
            However–as to Lisa R–I am not yet ready to believe it was for a storyline. I think this storyline happened organically and I am also certain there is whole bunch laying on the editing room floor. Kim played Lisa R like a fiddle and Lisa obliged by allowing what most certainly had been building up to get to her. Lisa broke the number one rule when an addict is poking–the sane come off as crazy and the crazy sit back and smirk at their fine handy work.

            Lisa wasn’t talking to Kim beyond apologizing and hoping Kim could see why the subject touched her, Kim saw alright and ran with it as ammunition not caring one bit how anyone felt. Kim came to that dinner ready for a fight with both Eileen and Lisa. She is so very jealous of the two newcomers. I myself am very angry at this whole thing–Bravo tops my list along side Kim. Then Brandi brings up the rear. Enough already!!!

            One last thought–if its true that Brandi is getting the boot maybe Lisa is being set up to be the next lovable but crazy HW. Just a thought….

      • not THAT Jill says:

        I think both reactions are stupid and dangerous-one is not more or less stupid.
        Brandi is doing what she always does when she’s not looking so good on TV-she tries to get in front of it -but it never works. Before I judge Lisa R I’m going to see what she has to say for herself-Brandi already spoke about the Eileen incident and changed the story 10 times-last time she spoke of it she said she “accidentally” threw wine in Eileen’s face!!

        • jezzibel says:

          I want to see how Lisa handles herself after the wine smashing(seriously the only kind of wine you should smash would be wine grapes-in a barrel-barefoot). The difference between Lisa and Brandi will be if, Lisa apologizes sincerely for her reaction(not only to Kim,the other people at the table, and to the host as well)and takes responsibility for her actions/reactions. I can see Lisa being more humble and apologetic for her behavior, than Brandi would.

        • kit9 says:

          I almost choked reading…’playing’. It’s only playing if the other person freaking knows it’s playing. Unreal trying to justify her behavior. Did u see her tweets about true colors being shown at the reunion? Right. I remember her saying repeatedly before the season started that Kyle would just suddenly turn on you out of nowhere when, in fact, that’s exactly what Brandi did to Kyle.

        • chismosa aka/ Lisa VP is my imperfect savvy Queen & I love her for it so sh-ut it says:

          Well Lisa did say she didn’t regret anything she did this season.

          I think Id regret breaking glass — not throwing liquid. She REGRETS TWEETS AS SHE ALWAYS DELETES


    • kit9 says:

      Nice try moron. No double standards, different standards. In one case you have Brandi attacking someone-playing soap star my a**-out of nowhere for no actual justifiable reason other than Brandi’s nastiness and desire to embarrass and humiliate Eileen. The other case you have LisaR being attacked over and over by a snarling vicious dog.

      • THIS.

        Here’s the prob: people in “CIRCUMSTANCES” react in “animal” mode when attacked. That’s animal instinct and if you want to know what I mean, attack someone’s family in front of them.

        Yeah, sometimes it may not be wise to poke the bear, especially if you’re nothing but weasels like Kim and Brandi, scavenging off of anyone and everyone to keep yourself fed whatever is your need of the moment: drugs, a paycheck, camera-time.

        There is no excuse for what Kim said and she better be damn glad that she did it to a woman who had a last reserve of restraint. Once again, Bravo is playing with fire.

        • chismosa aka/ Lisa VP is my imperfect savvy Queen & I love her for it so sh-ut it says:

          Yes but what exactly was Kim saying about Harry? I don’t get it? She just said “yes let’s talk about your husband” and implied things people don’t want to know or something …..

          It’s not like she out and out said something specific

          I’m nitpicking here but just saying. I’m sure a LOT was edited down.

          ****i like Lisa R – don’t get me wrong
          And Kim has got to go!

          • I’m sure you know this by now, but in case you don’t: LisaR blogged that she still has no idea what secret Kim thinks she has on them. I’ve read some reviews of Harry’s memoir, called “Full Frontal.” He pretty much lays decades of youthful follies out, no holds barred, so he doesn’t seem to be the overly private, sensitive type. Plus, whatever ‘secrets” he might have couldn’t be worse than the shenanigans of Kim Richards or Brandi Glanville, could they? Short of murder….

  12. not THAT Jill says:

    I wonder who would back this? Why would they think it’s a good idea for drunk Brandi to promote wine? I know Ramona has a wine and she was shown as a bit of a drunky but Brandi totally can not handle her wine…at all!!

    • California35 says:

      I tried Ramona’s – it is good. I can’t fond it anymore 😕 now i compare all to it 😋
      Also when we have seen Ramona drunky, she is happy, dancing, flurty ssshuutting “her down” 😋😛 i don’t mind that kind if drunky. I hope that doesn’t change, but so far I have not mind. Brandi on the other hand … and i won’t be trying hers.

      • HuskerHuny says:

        You’re right California – Ramona is a happy drunk; Brandi is a mean drunk and uses it as an excuse for her bad behavior.

    • Amber says:

      Brandi’s talked about a wine label being released immediately after CP’s finale and that didn’t happen. A box wine would make sense to me … just saying

    • kit9 says:

      This is the dumbest idea. It’s not going to sell squat except her die hard loony super fans. How many HW’s have booze now? So saturated…

      • jezzibel says:

        and her diehard-looney-super fans are not a guarantee of success either.

      • Powell says:

        I’ve wanted to try more of Bethenny’s but her booze is expensive. I don’t mind paying the price and have but for better tasting or quality brands. I tried her SG Margaritas when they first came out and I didn’t like it at all. I had to make myself drink it. Wasn’t pouring my money down the drain.

        • California35 says:

          I tried the margarita also, very strong so I added some sparkling water. I think i made it more skiny 😜 hehe

          Let me tell you, I found one other brand of “skiny” margarita and it was TERRIBLE!! Bethenny’s was only strong for me, but the flavor was fine.

          I did not try her wines… yet maybe eventually.

        • PJ says:

          My daughter and her friends like the SkinnyGirl drinks.

      • Powell says:

        And I’ve never found Ramona’s. I also wanted to taste Kim Z s Moscato but haven’t found it.

        • California35 says:

          Kim had one??! I missed it 😜

        • T-Rex says:

          I don’t think you will find any of OldCraggyBitch’sRamona Wines any time soon. The contract has run out from what I read, and I am not sure if she stopped promoting the wines or they dropped her, there are a smattering, well i could only find five outlets that have any bottles left, and all our completely discounted. Again, maybe she is working on another line or something, but I would bet she wouldn’t be doing anything until her divorce is completed. Wish these ho=wives would just stop, you are never going to be Bethenny or TheRoyalVpump with this branding so just STOP! Well then of course we will get more of those stupid fake clothing lines, ugh,

          • California35 says:

            They don’t carry it where i used to buy it, i asked to be sure. In case they had moved it. I was told they didnt have it. I twitter Ramona while back about it, and she replied telling me to ask for it. So I guess if people ask for it, they may bring it back.

        • PJ says:

          They did carry Ramona’s at a very upscale market near me. I have no idea if they still do but they do still have SkinnyGirl.

    • T-Rex says:

      Yeah, well since you don’t make ANY money off of these wines without appearances, and THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONSTFUBrandi is too LAZY to make appearances at Costco to be shilling wines by the box. When the OldCronesofBeverlyHillsAdjacent tried to sell their obligatory ho-wife wine, they fought so much about who was showing up where for appearances, they made no money and actually breached their contracts and made absolute ZERO dollars even for the couple of appearances they actually did. This will be another EPIC.FAIL for that moron. Oh, and I am sure it will be TheRoyalVPumps fault!

  13. California35 says:

    Good morning! Happy Monday! I hope we all have a good week, with cold, snow, rain, wind…But safe.

    Saw NY first look – i can leave without the screaming 😕 too much, these ladies scream for everything if they are excites, happy, surprised, mad, geee. Sssshhhhh lol im noy even talking about when they scream To each other.

  14. stellastars21 says:

    Hey everyone. Sorry for the bad weather. Here on the big island the weather changes depending on where you are standing on the island. There is something like 13 different climates in the world and here we have 11 of them. Something like that. You can actually (literally lol) play in the snow at the top of Mauna Kea and drive down and get a tan on the beach. But I won’t be doing either. Here’s what I’m working on today.

    Also where I live the hot temp is in the 70’s and gets as low as the 40’s year round. I’m about 5 miles above the airport. It looks like a rain forest where I am.

  29. VV™ says:

    I hope they address this at reunion. Stassi’s claims she was hurt by the cast. This is not true. She was hurt by Jax and Kristen period! Scheana, Tom Sandoval, Schwartz, Lisa, Pandora, well Pandora IS NOT nor was ever a cast on Vanderpump or had a recurring role on Vanderpump Rules, none of them do anything to her. She’s playing victim because it fits her goal. In reality, she left LA and SUR and didn’t have any contact with them for a long time without an explanation. She is so selfish. I just can’t!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Super selfish people tend to try to rewrite history, don’t they?

    • T-Rex says:

      Aaawwwww that poor misguided SuperSpoiledUbErBratStassi didn’t get her way this season, she wanted back on the show because she is broke after having her ass handed to her in NYC, when she couldn’t get arrested, let alone a job or internship. Her friend Pandy, who had her back for years, fired her from the magazine because she constantly wasn’t producing articles, then tried to start her own magazine for competition(which never panned out). She didn’t get re-hired at SUR or any of TheRoyalVpump restaurants because she walked off the job with no notice, for like the fourth time, and she was one of the crappiest waitresses, so they declined to have her back. Uhm, so how is it the staff’s fault that you quit without notice at a job you sucked at, and they didn’t hire you back. OH, and let’s not forget she came back to LA begged for her job back at VPRules then did nothing but bash the Executive Producer on twatter and in articles, Buh-bye Felicia! She and Jax get their asses handed to them at the Reunion, and deservedly so! I am sure Jax will be back on the show, but I think that SuperSpoiledUbErBratStass better go find a real J-O-B because she ain’t coming back!

  30. VV™ says:

    Stassi hugging and kissing Kristin shows her true nature 🐍

  31. VV™ says:

    People really have to be naive to think that Stassi, this self-absorbed, ungrateful rotten soul, is a victim. She’s a user and very skilled one. I’ve been watching her, reading her blogs, listening to her interviews, and interactions in Social Media for four years now. This chick is very selfish to the core and will do anything to get her way.

    STFU Stassi!!!

          • VV™ says:

            She’s so smart, NOT! I tell you why she left the show her HUGE EGO. She could not stand the fact she got humiliated on National TV.
            Stassi was the meanest cast since S1 to all her castmates neck to neck to Kristen. She now acts like she’s all above.

    Stassi is such s hypocrite. She claims to be more mature than her ex friends. In the end, it’s BS. It always was and will be about HER.

    • TexasTart says:

      I’m still struggling to wrap my head around this. I mean, what are her credentials for speaking on this matter?! Did I marvel at this the same when Angelina Jolie addressed the UN? Maybe, but I thought she had spend time living abroad and did charity work in the region she spoke of (see, I can’t even remember what Jolie spoke about). *shrug*

  40. TexasTart says:

  41. TexasTart says:

      And this. Go to speak at the UN in the daytime and make a cameo appearance with a mixed drink behind the bar at Andy Cohen’s WWHL at night. Surreal.

  43. not THAT Jill says:

    This is about Edddie and Scheanna

    • not THAT Jill says:

      • Exit4 says:

        I think she knew he was married. He probably had her convinced it was over, he’s leaving her, it’s for the kids….blah, blah, blah. Not that it makes it right-but much older and much smarter women have gotten themselves caught up in the same situation.

        • Veena (NMD) says:

          Maybe she didn’t know when the affair started, but didn’t it go on for years. Whatever ….

          • Exit4 says:

            She had to have known. Like I said though, people get caught up and waste years waiting for them to leave the wife and be with them. Rarely ever happens. Cheaters lie.

        • VV™ says:

          She’s always claimed she did’t know then her mother found out Eddie was married and she stopped seeing him. She then said months later he pursued her again and told her he and Brandi were separated.

          • not THAT Jill says:

            I believe she totally knew-but who knows what Eddie told her? He could have said he was getting a divorce or whatever. There is no way in hell she didn’t know about Brandi at all-they always know!! She would never admit to knowing because that makes her look worse-and knowing how Eddie never comments on anything she doesn’t have to worry about him talking.

            • VV™ says:

              Douchebag Eddie used to visit her and pick her up at her Mom’s. She was 20 or 21 at the time. It is quite possible she bought the story he was single. It was her mom that found several weeks later he was married.
              The second time around he told her he had separated from his wife. By then, he was two timing her with LeAnn Rimes.
              Do I know for sure she knew when she met him? I don’t know. I see a dumb inmature 21 year old and a 30 year old jerk. The whole thing is nauseating all around.
