Real Housewives of Melbourne – A Recap of Season One

Real Housewives of Melbourne Season One – The final Episodes by Veena

PS – we have a new blogger for this show starting Friday!  Yay!

group melbourne

The backdrop for this show is Melbourne Australia.  For those of you unfamiliar with Melbourne, it is at the south east tip of Australia (south of Sydney).

Season One introduced us to five Melbourne socialites, and one transplant from Sydney.

  • 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 (kind of like a judge’s robe and a little hair hat – perhaps because they used to wear wigs?) 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 was 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.
  • 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.

Two new housewives will join for Season two – wiki describes them this way:

  • Gamble Breaux is a contemporary art collector and consultant, she loves all things beautiful. She believes in always looking your best, even if that means a little nip and tuck. A big dog lover, Gamble is bubbly and fun and always up for a party.
  • Pettifleur Berenger is a determined, feisty and glamorous woman who thrives on a life of accomplishment and luxury. She is a successful property developer, lives in a penthouse in the heart of the city and is mother to three fantastic boys.

Episodes One through Six were recapped earlier this week, now we’re on to episodes Seven through Ten

group melborne 2

 

Last we left the ladies, they were finishing up their ‘away’ trip in Cairns at an abandoned resort.  Gina left the group a day early after the ‘gang up.’  Back in Melbourne, she regroups and tries to make sense of what happened.  It’s every real housewife’s worst nightmare – being ‘the one’ of the season who is on the outs with the rest of them and ostracized.  Luckily for Gina, Chyka is still Switzerland, and Jackie doesn’t succumb to peer pressure.  Unlucky for Gina is Andrea’s strange powers over Lydia and Janet.

The remainder of the season can be broken down into events, branding (mostly related), shopping, and gossip.

Chyka gets a few more branding opportunities on the show – hosting an annual event for all her clients to show off their new products. Gina phones at the last minute to say she’s coming, and receives a warm reception from Chyka, and an icy one from Lydia and Andrea.  Chyka also host a dog party (top that Lisa Vanderpump!) and a shopping spree for a housewares shop that is also a client.  Gina, Andrea, and Lydia are the other shoppers, and Andrea and Gina pretty much ignore each other the entire time.  We’re also treated to Chyka and Janet going designer dress shopping.

Andrea meets with a book publisher and doesn’t listen to a word the woman says.  The publisher suggest starting out with writing a blog to build an audience; Andrea says she’ll go straight to print.  She thinks the meeting went well, but decides to self publish (meaning they passed on her book concept).  She also hosts a grand opening for her business expansion (doesn’t invite Gina), and does a very strange photo shoot for her book cover, including taking a bunch of photo shots with Lydia where they mock their castmates.

Gina hosts a fundraiser to celebrate 10 years cancer free!  She invites everyone but Andrea.  Lydia accepts, then cancels, and Lydia and Andrea try to get Janet to cancel – applying heavy peer pressure.  Janet doesn’t buckle.  She also signs up with a matchmaker and goes on a blind date.

Janet meets with Dr Moss talk about additional operations for her son.  Her face is starting to bulge from all the fillers.

And Jackie, sweet Jackie and Ben spend the last few weeks of the season preparing for the launch of their beverage line.  They are a hot mess.  Remember the She by Sheree launch?  Well – it’s not clear if they’ll have any ‘product’ ready for their launch, but they sure have fun together.  So far they’ve decided to do a line of cocktails, and worked on their label (a little.)  They meet with a mixologist who explains some of the basics, such as the need for a high alcohol content for stability, and basically the difference between bottling cocktails and making them fresh.  They also can’t use the bottle they selected.  They also learn that they don’t have enough time to get the line bottled in time for their launch party.   That doesn’t stop them, and they (with Chyka’s help) decide on their packaging.  They also choose a venue for their launch.  The bottling alone is going to put them out several hundred thousand dollars, but it’s okay because Ben loves Jackie and will do anything to make her happy.

But all the events are just backdrop for the drama between the ladies.  To recap:

Gina insulted Jackie, by telling Lydia that she wasn’t worried about Jackie’s psychic reading because she didn’t believe a word she said.  Gina apologized and they were able to move on, but Gina realized she couldn’t trust Lydia to hold her confidence.

At some point Gina sent an email to someone, cc’ing Lydia and Andrea, telling that person to stop talking about something.  This was perceived as a threat by Lydia and Andrea.

Gina was late to Andrea’s tennis party, smeared bronzer in the bathroom, and wore high heels on the fancy tennis court.

When confronted by Andrea about her behavior, Gina went into the bathroom and called Lydia and Andrea the c word when talking to Janet.  She also said Lydia’s book was probably about two brain cells and a vagina.

Okay – I think that’s the entirety of it.  So the last three episodes is just rehashing all of Gina’s terrible crimes – and if you’re wondering what those are – they are listed above.  Yup – she’s accused of being late, being messy, and saying a few nasty words in anger after being attacked.

Meanwhile – every single scene Andrea and Lydia are in they are shown making fun of Gina, trashing her, insulting her, mocking her, and then trashing her some more.  They make fun of Chyka for staying neutral.  Andrea, in particular, has built herself up into a lather and wants everyone to share in the hate fest.  Everytime Lydia or Janet relent, she reminds them of all the awful things Gina has done.  I sure hope Andrea gets some help.  She’s just mean.  Lydia is two faced.  While not a bright woman, it does seem that at times she realizes that Gina isn’t 100% to blame.  Janet just seems scared of being iced out of the mean girls club, but by the end of the season she’s had enough – and decides it’s time to move on.

Somewhere during all of this Gina and Lydia sort of make up, and Gina tells Lydia that Janet had earlier said she hated Lydia and that Lydia was brain dead.  Lydia confronts Janet, who sort of confesses to it, and admits to the camera that it was payback for Janet spilling the beans on Gina.  But somehow Andrea makes it all Gina’s fault, and again Gina is in the doghouse.

These ladies are a herd of gazelle being chased down by wolves.  Andrea is keeping the strongest around her, and trying to leave Gina behind to cull the herd.  Thankfully it didn’t work.  Gina was surprisingly resilient.  It is reminiscent of Season One of BH when Camille was the one being culled.  She survived.  Season Two was Russell Armstrong’s turn.  Season Three it was Adrienne Maloof – she left the show.  Season Four they turned on Lisa Vanderpump.  She survived.  And this season it’s Brandi’s turn.

There are a few more parallels to this season and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

1) The email threatening to sue (Adrienne was Gina; Brandi was Andrea and Lydia)

2) The carrier pigeon causing trouble (Taylor repeating Kyle’s words to Camille; Janet repeating Gina’s words to everyone)

Thankfully, there was no drunkenness or addiction.

And that’s about it for the Real Housewives of Melbourne.  The season ends with Jackie and Ben’s product launch, and thankfully, even though they don’t seem to have any bottled product, they have the packaging and can mix up the drinks that they’ve settled on, so it’s not a complete bust.  Sweet Jackie tells everyone that dreams can come true, if you marry a rich rock and roll star, and they bankroll your dream of an alcohol product line.  With a lot of Jackie’s liquor in their veins, the ladies sort of make up and can joke about the season.  They all figure out that their real problem is Janet being two-faced, and at least they can all agree that they don’t trust Janet.  One thing accomplished.

    Good morning peeps. ❄❄❄❄❄❄❄❄❄❄❄❄❄⛄⛄❄❄❄❄
    Mmmmm hmmmm!!. Sighhhhh!!
    But I have YOU!! You will get me thru it. And crazy funny tweets like this. 😀

  2. Powell says:

    I like all the RHOMel ladies. Gina is my fav. She reminds me so much of Jackie Collins who I LUV, w/her big hair & overdone makeup. She did make me made not letting the ladies know she was going to be late to the tennis party. After all she was in court working. And I thought it was thoughtless to leave Andria’s bathroom in a shambles when she put on a new face of makeup. Makeup all on those white towels. Did that even come out? Yikes!! Andria had a bee up her bonnet about Gina the entire season. I didn’t get ALL the hate. I love Chikka too. Love her style. What a great biz she and her husband seem to be in.
    IDK

  3. Powell says:

    Pettifluer. I’m looking forward to hear how she pronounces her name. Just looks like a very expensive and yummy desert to me. 🙂 🍮

    • mrs peabody says:

      good article

    • Powell says:

      Great NMD. WOW!! I can only hope when Leann reads this she let’s it sink in. Dean owned his sh*t. He gives her lots and lots of compliments. He saw right before his eyes the shift of her betrayal w/Eddie. I’d say Dean has Eddie down pat. From this article I can see that Leann has “bought” Eddie. “Stuff” means a lot to her. Unfortunately I think their relationship had to implode in this way for Dean to get his life back. I think he’s happier than Leann is. I think he’s free and Leann is faking it until she can make it. His wife Sarah is, I’m sorry much prettier, healthy looking. He’s lucky he got out at this age and w/o any children w/LeAnn.

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

        I’m sorry, I see him as a total hanger on. He was a dancer (which he was trained for) and suddenly he was her manager, co-writer, etc, which he was never trained for.

        I think as a young superstar, Leann was brought up to be needy, but I don’t think she’s the devil. I think Brandi is the devil who leaked hundreds of damaging stories about her in revenge, and people believe them.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Rebecca I have thought the same thing for years about Brandi and the stories but never had anyone else to share that point of view with here!!
          I did like the interview with Dean-that’s the way all of them should behave and this nonsense would go away-but they are drama queens and they live for this shit!!

    • jezzibel says:

      He seems so nice, normal, and grounded. Leann traded down. I’m glad he’s gotten himself together and gotten his happy back and is doing something he loves. I’m glad he gets the happy ending, out of the whole dirty affair

    • He is the kindest man for saying what he did without being hateful. Yes we all know leann is living for acknowledgement from fans and anyone who snarks at STFUBrandi.
      I’ll be buying HIS cookbook!

  4. Powell says:

    This is Jackie’s LaMascara. Sorry but it’s just a fancy way of saying Mascara to me so I’m not sure about the name which Chyka pointed out to Jackie.

  5. jezzibel says:

    I was wondering if Maury was the one to put the foot down about cutting off contact with Kim after their daughter was bitten by her dog, because lets be honest when it comes to it, Kim is Kyles blind spot. I think he is sick and tired of dealing with and hearing about the mess Kim creates and then leaves Kyle to pick up, I think any goodwill he had towards Kim ended when her dog attacked their daughter. I’ve been binge watching the previous seasons(and boy is it eye opening). I’m almost done with S2 and I think Kim’s sobriety/sister issues have dominated the series for long enough. Bravo needs to let Kim, Brandi go, demote Kyle to friend status, keep Lemon-lyme, because every piece needs a scheming villain.

    • T-Rex says:

      Jezzibel- Let’s not forget that not only did that dog bite their daughter which required a hospital stay and surgery, SpaceCadetDrugAddictAlcoholicKim went to the press and said it was Alexia’s fault her uncontrollable dog that has bitten other people bit her that day! I would hope that Murray got some balls and made a big ole stink about the incident. I think Murray stays out of the whole “sister issues” because frankly it keeps VileKyle from making an issue regarding his “wandering eye”. I am looking back on that whole fight and the fact that VileKyle was slinking away, maybe she was afraid her sister was going to “out” Murray again about his cheating.

      • Right- it was Alexia’s fault for going into Kim’s bedroom. C’mon- everyone know that!

        As far as his wandering eyes (and penis- to be technically correct) I think Kyle should be more afraid of Brandi than Kim…

        Maybe that’s the bombshell…because Andy hinted it was about the two sisters…

        • mrs peabody says:

          I also think over the years Kyle has shared gossip with Kim about others and maybe she’s afraid Kim might spill some of that. I was thinking that maybe the reason Kyle was trying to shut Kim up at the beginning of the fight with Lisa R (when she said something about Yolo’s nice dinner) was that she has said things about Lisa R (maybe something about her being so skinny) that she was afraid when Kim made the comment about the bread that Kim was going to say to Lisa and she would know Kyle had been talking about her. whew!

    • Could be…he did seem really weary when Kyle told him on camera that Kim was In the hospital…

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

      I think Kim still has that dog and Kyle will refuse to have anything to do with her until Kingsley’s gone.

      • designernailsdiana says:

        I thought Kingsley was taken from Kim or she surrendered him to a pit bull rescue.

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

          I swear I read that she changed the info on his license but he’s still with her. She considers him to be her emotional therapy dog.

  6. California35 says:

    Good morning!

    I catched up on the reading for BH😊 Thanks Namaste and Stars and Vena (and all the bloggers and posters…for all the fun entertainment…)

    Thabks for blogging about Melnourne and for telling us when it will begin. So no longer on Sundays?! I wonder what changed, actaully I have wondered why it was on Sundays and not much hoopla last season. I do need to go back to to the other day to read the episode recaps on it. I remember the season, but I would like to read the recaps. Thanks!

    • T-Rex says:

      Well, Bravo is in a “pickle” of sorts, they don’t have Jersey folks to film, nor to run on TV as a franchise, and won’t for a long while, so maybe they are trying to move the Melbourne ladies into a better time slot to get them more “traction” and ratings. Of course they won’t be near the US franchises, but still better than nothing. I have heard lots and lots of rumblings out of Jersey and the franchise may actually be done, like in kaput! We shall see, they aren’t doing anything, I heard, until ConvictFelonTeresa is out of prison. OH and remember that nonsense lawsuit that folks were insinuating that Teresa Aprea had something to do with, she didn’t and she isn’t even named, TMZ and others got it WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG yet again. There was a T. Aprea named but that is for TINA Aprea, she is the managing GM for the restaurant, and listed as CEO. I told you Teresa isn’t even listed on any documents for the place! Oh and the lawsuit is already gone!

      • California35 says:

        True, they are falling a bit there. So they are moving Melborne up a bit, and see if it sticks and occupies a slot.

        As far as NJ, they should just kill it already. If they want Theresa after she comes out, then they can have a show about her.

      • ladebra says:

        Didn’t NJBev say that NJ was filming? That some people around where one of the HW works had to sign releases?

        • Exit4 says:

          It was something with the twins-someone she knew had to sign a release because they were filming, maybe in an office? Andy has said no filming has happened and jim m has been bitching non-stop about being in limbo. Nj.com always reports on the filming locations-and nothing.

          • T-Rex says:

            Exit you are correct, Nj.com has like a million spies out there, a lot of ladies who don’t work and spend time in and around the area at local shops, hair salons, etc. they are always on the lookout for filming, and not a PEEP out of them about filming.

            • Exit4 says:

              The businesses know well ahead of time if there’s going to be filming as well. I know a little about the process from people who have done it-it’s very controlled and orchestrated. So, they tip them off as well. Vicki Hyman usually-she’s the go to. I have a little idea-I’ll post below-you probably won’t agree with me 😉-but it’s just a thought!

      • Powell says:

        Well I hope NJ is gone. It should have been 2 seasons ago.

        • Exit4 says:

          It will never be gone Powell! Lol. It’s the most watched after Atlanta. Even in its backslide-it did better overall then the other franchises (that were not Atlanta). How long it lasts going forward-who knows? How much longer can any of them last really? At some point they’ll die out on their own.

  7. Powell says:

    I can’t believe it. The Jodi Arias penalty phase trial is a 2 nd freaking hung jury. WOW 😱

    • designernailsdiana says:

      Powell I couldn’t believe it. If judge Sherry gives her life with parole or whatever it is in AZ and she gets out……. I’ll bet she will be living in hiding like Casey Anthony is now.

      • Powell says:

        Juror 17 was the hold out. The jury said she basically refused to deliberate. She had her mind made up. One of the male jurors said she basically said to them they wanted revenge. That’s why they wanted death. He said he was very angry at her for saying that because many of the other jurors’ religious beliefs are against the death penalty but they put those beliefs aside to listen to the evidence and do what they were sworn to do. She also tried to bring up bits of the Lifetime movie that she saw. They didn’t want to hear it. They asked the judge for an alternate but she refused.

        • designernailsdiana says:

          Everyone that I’m seeing posting about this is upset with the judge, now I see why. ugh

          • Powell says:

            AZGirl hasn’t been around. I’d like her take on how it is out there.

          • kit9 says:

            This judge is an embarrassment. The way she conducted both the original guilt phase and now the retrial of the punishment phase was straight up incompetent. I’ve never seen or heard of trial conducted this way…constant breaks, short court days, half days, no days, 3 day weekends. It makes it excruciating on the jurors and esp the families-who do not live in Arizona. Can you imagine the cost of traveling to another state for a case that moved at such a snail’s pace and where they had constant down time-all while the meter on their hotels was ticking away?

            And, today the revelations from the jurors that the holdout refused to deliberate yet the judge refused to replace her is just mind boggling.

  8. mrs peabody says:

    I think by the time BH got to Amsterdam the ladies were already refusing to film with Brandi and don’t seem to be interacting with her much and that is why you see her by herself that night they went to the pot shop. Yolo was busy with one of them and Kim wasn’t there and no one would walk with her.

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      As I watched the beginning of the last episode, I wanted to see how Brandi carried herself with the other ladies–she was a non-factor because she wasn’t causing any problems. She’s not interesting, doesn’t have anything to add, she’s just a bore to me. Very. Ad for Brandi!

      • California35 says:

        I did notice she was not too involved SPECIALLY when Kim was around. I did wonder when will these ladies stop engaging with her?!! So it is nice to see less of her, even her little tantrum about how she cant say anything about them and waah waah was not on your face kind of thing, she was even walking away and back and away again.

        • Ladina says:

          Lol, she reminded me of my teen when she is trying to fight with me… The gestures, the incomprehension lmao Just picking a fight for attention..

        • Powell says:

          “Don’t touch me!!” to Kyle. Kyle said, “I won’t touch you.”. Yup like Ladina said she just wanted to fight for attention.

      • Exit4 says:

        I saw the repeat last night and it was so telling at the end-the other ladies walking an talking and Brandi trailing behind….yo tried to talk to her and she was still being an ass-so she walked away a second time. She’s been frozen out. I do think yo will try to defend her-she does believe that people like her need love the most. Once Brandi is gone-yo won’t see her anymore.

        • California35 says:

          Interesting about Yo, and you are right. Yo wont want to be on Brandi’s bad side while she still has to deal with her.

      • Orson says:

        Is it possible that after planting the seeds in Kim, and then lighting the fuse, Brandi started by just sitting back to enjoy the explosion and was somewhat surprised at the size of it? Or maybe she realized that having inserted herself as a wedge between K & K, Kyle was stepping away and now her BFF Kim was her problem?

        Whether I’m wrong, a little right, or just plain right, Brandi is still a b-word.

  9. jezzibel says:

    okay at 15:59 Kim is messed up http://www.hulu.com/watch/632890
    I feel kind of sorry for bullmastiff Ken, because, Kim used him to agitate and piss off her sister. I suspect that his is a casual drug user and at this point it’s become very obvious to him that Kim has serious drug issues, and he’s getting kind of fed up with her, and is starting to see where everyone else is coming from, so she’s going to chuck him under the bus.
    Also in this episode, Lisa tells Scheana that she has worked for her for 2 years( and I think the Brandi divorce happened 3 years prior(not 100% but I’m pretty sure she said 3 years at that point)), So Brandi’s issue with Lisa employing Schena are kind of moot, because Lisa employed her after the whole affairs came out. I guess none of this matters in Brandi’s reality
    I’m so glad Taylor is gone I can’t take much more the that gaping maw.

    • California35 says:

      I saw Ken coming out of a drug store in my neighborhood. It was after he and kim were no longer together (according to BH), I posted here about it when I saw him. He was by himself. Anyways, it made me wonder how close he lives to me and if Kim was so so close. I know on seasons prior, we had talked about how she would go to Costco. I dont shop at Costco, so i know i won’t run into her, but I usually never shop at that drug store ans run into Ken.
      Now that i an name dropping, I have also seen Dee, Camille’s friend 😜

    • mrs peabody says:

      I believe she had employed her before she knew who Brandi was so at the point she met Brandi Schena was already working for her.

    • Powell says:

      Jezzibel so when they were at that restaurant and Kim went to the bathroom and Ken followed her, stayed by the door, kept calling her, “Kim. I’m. Let me in.” Kim said “I’m using the bathroom. Leave me alone.” There was only one bathroom available and I think Bobble’s friend Jennifer came up to these door and said to Ken “is someone in there?”. Was Ken trailing Kim because he knew Kim was using pretty hard? Remember after Kim came out f the bathroom she sat at the table w/Kyle and said Ken wouldn’t leave her alone, wouldn’t let her out of his sight. And then she says the dinger she thought she was pregnant.

      • jezzibel says:

        I think when they got together it was because he was a casual drug taker(not a habitual or full on addict) and he thought that she was too, but I think at some point, after the vaca to Hawaii, he figured out that she had a serious addiction problem, and he was trying to control/stop/make sure she didn’t do anything really damaging in public, thats why he was keeping tabs on her, I think he was also worried if it got really bad he would be blamed or she would turn around and blame him for anything that happened to her.

    • Powell says:

      It really pissed me off that because Lisa knew the affair story from Scheana and Bobble then Lisa was becoming friendly w/Bobble she expected Lisa to be on her side and fire her employee of 2yrs before she even met Bobble. The affair happened 4-5 yrs prior and Lisa’s supposed to fire her? Lisa had no just cause to fire her.

  10. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Bravo is having a RH of Melbourne marathon today and I’m LOVING it-I never watched so I’m still trying to get to know these chicks! Do all of you watch? Why haven’t I been watching? I love most of these women but a few I could do with out!! Who is your fave?? And your worst??

    • California35 says:

      Favorites Chika and Gina.
      Im afraid they could end up or turn to be the worst – 😒. But so far I like both of them, they also seem to like each other.
      Worst is the one writing a book and all the nannies. But she is gone!
      The young one annoys me a bit for calling the others “old” and judgy of them, but she may be coming around. I need to learn their names sorry.

      I watched all the episodes and wished i was home to watch again 😒 hahaha

      • Powell says:

        Gina is my fav. I love Chyka too. I love her style. Last season I tweeted her about the epi where she made spaghetti for her son and his friends. She tweeted me back.

      • Powell says:

        Oh what Andrea said she was putting in her book was very much looking down on working moms and stay at home moms saying If they’re not a mom that does it all and does it right, according to her they’re failures.

    • I never watched it either! But the ❄️❄️❄️⛄️⛄️⛄️ Has forced me to stay inside and watch 📺📺📺 and eat 🍕🍕🍕

      • I don’t know who is who except Gina. 💕💕💕 her.

        • California35 says:

          Cool! Glad you can watch, so you will be familiar when the nee season begans. I dont know if many watch last season and I WANT to chat about it 😜

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          OMIB-I only know Gina too!! She’s my FAVE!! I love her! She may be my most favorite HW ever b/c she doesn’t give a FU*K!! She should write a book on not giving a fu*k -she’s that good at it!!

          • Foxymel(Mel) says:

            They had to think of a reason to hate Gina so they decided to hate her because she’s always late and she ruined Andrea’s precious bath towels! Ugh. I haven’t watched supine they aired it last year.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              OMG the bath towel thing was soooooo stupid!! I wanted to smack that one!! I think the reunion is coming on now…I have to run out and shovel!! I paid 2 kids 20 bucks to shovel about 3 hours ago but it needs to be done again…I HATE THE SNOW!!!

              • Foxymel(Mel) says:

                So sorry about all the snow. :0(

                Um, couldn’t Andrea just buy new towels? No, she just wanted to humiliate Gina.

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  I’m so confused as to why Andrea was so angry about everything Gina did-I need to watch the first couple of episodes again because I wasn’t really paying attention b/c I didn’t think I would get so caught up in it all!!

            • Powell says:

              I love Gina but that was sooo wrong w/the towels and leaving the bathroom a wreck. Just wrong. Don’t use white wash clothes and towels to take off makeup unless you wash them asap.

      • Powell says:

        Pizza. Mmmmmmm.

    • ladebra says:

      It came on Sunday, during the day, so I watched and loved it! Sure, some more than others. love Gina lol, she is a shark. And Chika actually acted normal and civil and lovely. The young one is just so over the top it’s entertaining, shine, shine, shine. The one that acts like Sonja is the shit stirrer but she’s funny when she tries to be mean. And she constantly changes the gossip she is spreading. The only one I really didn’t enjoy is the one not returning. She was really too too much, and she caught a lot of crap on FB and Twitter and couldn’t take the heat.

      I’m very glad they are coming back for season 2. I sorta wish they were going to be on Sunday noon still, but oh well, that’s why you have a DVR😜

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        The one that isn’t coming back is the one I know I would love to hate!!!

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      Hi Jill! I really enjoyed the show.
      My faves: Gina and Chyka.
      Flip flopper:Janet
      Crazy newcomer:Jackie
      Not too crazy about: Andrea and the lady with the dark hair.
      Very good show in my opinion even though they were out for blood with Gina. Of course there has to be a person that people have to dislike.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Jackie is a bit of a whackadoodle and Andrea is so obnoxious!! I love Gina and Chyka is lovely -most normal and calm HW ever!!

      • Powell says:

        That’s Lydia. She just jumps on Andrea’s bandwagon. I suppose she’ll hang w/Janet now that Andrea isn’t coming back.

        • Foxymel(Mel) says:

          Lydia and Andrea decided to make Gina the target. Everyone started to have an “issue” with her even Janet–except for Chyka.

          I will say that it was scary how right Jackie was about Gina’s man cheating on her. Gina flew out to L.A. Like the next day.

          • Powell says:

            Yes she did. Spooky. I was watching the reunion. I don’t get Gina’s ex threatening the ladies for talking about him.

            • Foxymel(Mel) says:

              I remember that Gina CC’ed Andrea and Lydia on an email? That was strange too.

    • Powell says:

      Oh SUGAR!! I missed it. The reunion is on now.

  11. shamrockblonde says:

    thanks for the update on Membourne! as I don’t usually follow this franchise, I still get confused as to who is who, but I do remember the whole cocktail launch thing – that was the one that is married to the rock star, right? I will try to give it moreof a go, but it is good to know that I can get caught up right here! as is usually the case, the recaps are better than the actual show! –

  12. serenanyc says:

    The juicy description for the episode airing 2 weeks from now called “Confessions of a Housewife:”

    “Lisa Vanderpump refuses to accept Brandi’s apology for slapping her the night before. After a final dinner in Amsterdam, which Brandi skips for a date with a 24-year-old, the women return home. Brandi gets bad news about her father’s health. Kyle is shocked when Lisa Rinna tells her that Brandi has talked about Kim needing an intervention. Later, in Palm Springs, Kyle angrily reveals to Kim what her “best friend” Brandi has been saying behind her back.”

    • T-Rex says:

      Oh, and let’s PLEASE NOTE that this 24-year old is a MALE PROSTITUTE, that has sex with men for money in the Red Light district! He admitted to trying to get on the show for publicity and nothing more

      • serenanyc says:

        OMG! Just when I think she can’t get any lower!

        • T-Rex says:

          She claimed on twatter at the time, that she had NO IDEA he was using her to be on the show, yadda, yadda. This was before her twatter was shut down, she posted that they had come back from Amsterdam and that she was in LOVE, she had found her soul mate even if he was a couple of years(uhm try almost 20 years) her junior and she posted a picture. WELL, then came the flurry of posts and twats showing this guys “poster” or “menu(that’s what they call it in the district)” and that he was a male prostitute, NOW the guy said he also sleeps with women too. He then posted that he went out with her because of the cameras and he wanted to be famous

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Here are some “Brandi snaps” about her “Dutch Boyfriend”

            • T-Rex says:

              Awesome Jnntj! I knew she had put in print that she and this Prostitute were supposedly in this awesome whirlwind relationship. Oh and he wasn’t from a well to do family either, LOL! He was just a Prostitute that saw the TV Cameras thought she was famous and that he could get famous too. He admitted to ALL of that later on. Then THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONSTFUBrandi stated either in a twatter or another article that they had really only met like one time and were just friends, yadda yadda, Yet another LIE LIE LIE in the umpteen thousand other LIES she has told!

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I will tweet the “Brandi Snaps” about the boyfriend and link them here…
            -I messed up the pictures and deleted the tweet!!

          • She told everyone that she met him in the Red Light District and that he was so cute it was stupid or something.

            I don’t remember her ever saying she was in love- just that he was much younger than her.

            • T-Rex says:

              She called him her “soul mate” in a twatter, I think she deleted it, but someone has to have a screenshot, this was right before her twatter was taken over by a handler.

          • Powell says:

            her twatter. You crack me up T-Rex. So when people posted his poster did she respond to those tweets?

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      Juicy! Can’t wait. 🙂

    • TexasTart says:

      AhHA! You tell her Kyle! Kim won’t believe her, of course. We’ll see. Thanks, Serenanyc.

  13. shamrockblonde says:

    are the pot shops a huge tourist draw in Amsterdam? what about the red light district? honest question, just wondering why the ladies ended up at these locations – were there no other sites that they could have visited? or perhaps the other places would not allow filming? just wondering who set the schedule – Yo, the producers, random people…just odd – I would have liked to see more of the countryside – I have learned more about Amsterdam from T-Rex than anything shown on the show – I just pray that the people of Amsterdam – and any other country that any of the HW franchises & Shahs have been to – understand that they do NOT represent – AT ALL – the majority of the American people….

    • Exit4 says:

      They are for younger people. Everyone I know who’s gone has been there. It’s a novelty to be able to smoke freely! My parents were there-they went to the red light district and the cafes (during the day-they were on a cruise) but they did not partake! I joked with my dad that he had to get a great shot of mommy smoking up so I could frame it!! 8X10-right in the living room.

    • T-Rex says:

      I have been to Amsterdam a few times, I have only been to the RedLight district ONCE, that was all it took it wasn’t fun, it was actually rather disgusting IMO, however I do like the idea, place all your whores in one area of town, have them all tested weekly, by the way their health cards are right on their doorfronts next to the windows showing their last test dates. As far as Coffee shops, I don’t agree they are all for the young people at all. I was in my forties last time I was there, and well, also in the shops and LOADS of folks my age in those shops and older. There is a shop that The Doors supposedly smoked in, and there are tons of old hippies in that place. Now, we also toured the Canals where you find out that New Amsterdam is new as of the year 500 and Old Amsterdam is prior to that. We toured the Van Gogh museum, I have been to Anne Frank’s home and museum each time I have been there, toured the Heineken plant, etc. We went to a Tulip farm and did a tour of a Plant that makes Windmills. There really isn’t any Coffee shops in the Red LIght District. We also went to a ton of restaurants, uhm yeah, cause Coffee makes you hungry. Their downtown area is like little different countries and they have food from everywhere. I even had a neat little umbrella with tulips at the end(plastic but nice), that I would bring, it rains a lot! We know why they have Huge Hooks in front of every house, it’s so you can move, you open the front window and the hook is used as a pulley to move furniture in and out of your home, we watched them swing a couch into one, one day. OH and on one boat tour we had an idiot captain, we reported him, that basically wanted to play “chicken” with an incoming Ferry because he wasn’t given the right of way, uhm we are in the freakin ocean in a tour boat against a huge Ferry Boat. Glad we had been a bit subdued, although the whole boat reported him to the police immediately when we were back to the docks.

      • Powell says:

        The Van Gogh museum, Anne Frank’s home and the Heineken plant would be my places of attractions to see. Van Gogh is one of my favorite artists. Him and Degas, love love love The Ballerinas, and Monet, love Water Lillies.

        • T-Rex says:

          There are actually about 10 museums to see there, they have an extensive art community and twice a week in the area they call the “square” local artists and artisans set up all day selling paintings, sketches, homemade jewelry, trinkets. etc.

  14. Exit4 says:

    So, my ideas on NJ. They’re just going to wait. Her lawyer has said she will likely be home before Christmas. I’m going to go with him because I know his reputation and he’s very good at what he does. It’s ultimately up to probation and the prison people-but there are circumstances that will allow this. She won’t be “free”-she’ll still be incarcerated until February, but either in a halfway house for part of the day or under home confinement-like Martha Stewart. I don’t see her not being allowed to film (it is “work”-for her) in her own home. I don’t know when or if Joe has been assigned a report date-but that may play into it? I don’t know? I figure it this way-Michael Vick was on probation after he served his time in Federal prison for killing dogs. He was also playing for the Eagles. If he can “work”-why can’t she? But, I do know probation and home confinement are 2 seperate things. They could start filming without her in the late summer or early fall and barely miss a beat and be ready to go next spring. Even though February and December aren’t far apart in real time-In TV time it is. I guess we’ll see. It could be a big mistake for them to bank on her being available by the end of the year-if they are-but they don’t have anything to lose-people WILL tune in to see her. Even if they hate her!

    Speaking of Joe-I think he goes to court next week, I think, for the license case. Just to make it official. I’m curious if they’ll actually suspend his license. I’m thinking no.

    • Well.

      This theory is as sound as any other one.

      When in doubt follow the $$$. RHONJ is a cash cow for Bravo, so yeah I can see them picking up right where they left off if Teresa is amenable to it. And why wouldn’t she be? She has cookbooks to “write” , Gia’s singing career to promote, etc etc.

      • Exit4 says:

        Alex McCord used to do vlogs about reality TV-insider stuff. They were pretty good. I remember her saying that once you do reality TV any hopes of going back into a real job are slim to none. Unless you work for yourself. Teresa has no options, it’s this or nothing.

    • T-Rex says:

      I don’t agree she will be home for Christmas and her lawyers if you google have backed off that statement. The Judge has to sign off on the early release and guess what the Judge DOESN’T have yet? She has zero zippo, nada none of the required paperwork. I think she gets out Mid-January. They have paid back nothing and STILL OWE money to the courts they were supposed to pay when she went to Prison. Okay, of course Bravo wants her back the hot second she is released from Prison, I bet you she already has a deal in place with them for mucho dinero for the FIRST post Prison interview. Here is the kicker, from what I have read and her lawyers have stated, she wants her OWN show after Prison, she doesn’t want to SHARE with other Ho-wives. She wants a show featuring her and the girls, she claims she wants it to focus on cooking and growing a cooking empire, but yeah, right who are we kidding she wants to whore out her kids on reality TV aka TheKardashians.

      • Foxymel(Mel) says:

        Hi T-Rexie, I hope you’re feeling better.

        Do you happen to know why they haven’t garnished Teresa and Joe’s wages but they’ve gone after Apollo’s? I still don’t understand why he’s serving so much time. I know you explained it the day.

        • Exit4 says:

          They probably have or they will-when and if she has wages again. They would probably go after bank accounts and tangible items (like cars) first. They don’t seem to disclose any of it publicly. Apollo got the time he did because he had a criminal history and the amount of money involved. Teresa and Joe didn’t have a criminal history. I don’t know if Apollo was in federal prison the first time or not.

          • Sorry babe- I didn’t read your whole post- whoops, yup I agree Apollo had a record. And yeah I think it was Federal. Lemme go look

            • Yes he served 5 years of an 18 year FEDERAL racketeering sentence. Remember the car titles? He’d switch em out, and then the luxury cars were bought by the Russian mob or some other nefarious group, and sold overseas.

            • T-Rex says:

              First Jail time was served in Georgia State Prison, not Federal Prison which is why that idiot thought he would get out in just a few years. I will find a good link that doesn’t link to other blogs to show the arrest record

        • T-Rex says:

          ConvictFelonNida should have gotten 25+ years! He is one lucky SOB that he only got 8 years, his cohort in crime got 15 years. He “rolled” over on folks higher up in the food chain, ie Bank Representatives and folks that helped him to open the accounts and such. They were all indicted and he will have to testify against them in court as well, it was part of his plea deal. As far as the ConvictJuicy’s, I would believe there will be wage garnishments after she is released from Prison, they are still being sued and have numerous judgements against them. I have also heard and I am not sure if this is true at all! It should come out very soon if true, that one JuicyJoeConvict is not paying the mortgage and hasn’t since ConvictTeresa went to prison. I think the banks post notice about non-payments, after 90 days of non-payments which should be the end of this month. Again, this is a rumor. It is no rumor that they have yet to pay their fines that were assessed by the courts, they made the one payment and haven’t paid anything since then. Not going to get that early release without it, you still get your 15% but that puts her release the last week of January

        • Powell says:

          Did Apollo have a HW salary? I didn’t think the husbands had salaries.

        • Apollo is also a convicted felon. Teresa and a Juicy didn’t have a record like his.

          So yeah I get why he got much more time. He also stole a lot more $$$.

      • Exit4 says:

        She paid her $200,000 at sentencing-or right after. The rest will be on a payment plan-for years. For both of them! Back durimg the raid that wasn’t-the guy from the prosecutors office said they were having no issues with them. Even if she does want her own show-she have to take what she can get! She’s tied too tight to bravo. I don’t think she’ll have an option not to be connected to housewives on some level in the beginning-but they may choose to spin her off later-like Kim or nene. Or Lisa. Her first interview will be a payday for sure. I guess andy will have to do it on the WWHL set like always. I’d love to see a bigger thing-like on Dateline, because it would be more interesting then what andy can do. But I don’t think they’ll pay.

        • T-Rex says:

          Oh agreed on the interview, no way a large station is going to pay her big bucks for an interview, they would get crucified for doing that. So she will be on that WWHL set, or maybe they will do it from her house, who knows. Who knows if they will have a house, if ConvictJuicyJoe isn’t paying their mortgage that house will be foreclosed on before she gets out.

          • Exit4 says:

            It wouldn’t be shocking if the mortgage isn’t being paid. I don’t know their specific situation, but of the 3 homes they have for sale-if one has to foreclose, I’d let it be the mansion. It’s the most expensive, it’s hard to sell and it’s just an albatross at this point.

          • Foxymel(Mel) says:

            Thanks, ladies for all the details. I can’t believe Apollo did what he did and also brought a few people down with him. No wonder Phaedra doesn’t want to have anything to do with him–she needs to appear like she had no idea what he did. Not only for her reputation but for her safety. Apollo is such a scumbag.

            I thought the Guidice’s had stopped paying their mortgage a long time ago and that the house was up for foreclosure?

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      The LATimes reported that he had a Federal sentence for Racketeering, I have no idea and really don’t care if this was his first or nineteenth conviction, or where he served his time.

      http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/gossip/la-et-mg-apollo-nida-rhoa-phaedra-parks-real-housewives-of-atlanta-20140708-story.html

      IMHO, his lengthy record led to his sentence being longer than the Guidice’s

      • T-Rex says:

        They are wrong I posted the link from the state. Just because it’s a newspaper doesn’t mean it’s correct. I have read his federal indictment the first offer was 30 years and then he agreed to eight years and will testify in subsequent trials.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          How does this invalidate my argument? He had a record. He stole more $$$, he got a longer sentence.

          How is where he served time relevant to this conversation?

          • T-Rex says:

            It’s relevant I guess because there is a huge difference in State time and Federal time. It doesn’t invalidate the argument, just setting the record straight as to the charges and the crimes.

        • Foxymel(Mel) says:

          30yrs?? Did he also kill someone we don’t know about? That’s so long IMHO.

          • T-Rex says:

            Foxy that is what the original charges added up to he is a convicted Felton who did time previously for the same crime. Racketeering carries huge years in prison. Oh and if he gets out and commits another felony it’s Life in prison as a third time felon.

  19. Exit4 says:

    The Juicysansion isn’t for sale anymore. Interesting!

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      Really?! That’s very interesting. What’s going on over there?

      • Exit4 says:

        It should’ve said the juicys mansion! Lol. The other 2 places are still for sale. Who knows??? It’s says off market. Could be one of several things!

        • Orson says:

          I’d say mostly because it was overpriced for the market. What was the last price? $2,999,000.00? The thing about real estate, or guitars for that matter too, is that it’s worth as much as someone else is willing to pay for it. Sentimental value has no cash value.

    • T-Rex says:

      I was getting ready to do the Real Estate update tomorrow, and you beat me to this, LOL! Yep removed on 03/01. Now it could be that the property is changing listing agents, some times they take it off market on the real estate websites when changing listing companies. Since there are numerous rumors that no one is paying the mortgage on the home, so could the bank be calling in their “note”, which would mean the home would be listed as going into foreclosure. There are numerous judgments and liens on the property, so it could be they are giving up and letting the bank and creditors take the home, this is just speculation. We shall see if the house re-lists within the week. Their shore house is still listed for sale.

      • Exit4 says:

        I’m Sorry! It could be any of those things! The rental, that they lived in before the mansion, is still for sale too. I wonder….

      So I’m a little confused- they’re saying that a “known internet con” is ghost writing her blogs and now s/he’s taken over or has been “let in” to Brandi’s twitter?

      Is this who you thought it was? Is someone else? I wanna know who the “known internet con” is…

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        The known internet con is who I thought it was from the first blog Brandi didn’t write herself. I haven’t really said much about it on twitter but I kind let it slip to the few who would say more and not care…now it’s blowing up b/c Brandi’s #1 fan and Leann’s #1 hater are in a twitter war with the known con…it’s like a soap opera!!
        Exit-check on Audrey…she’s pretty much the general in this twitter war!!

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Brandi’s twitter bestie is getting pissed off that that anyone would say Brandi doesn’t write her own blogs for real? She’s supposed to be your best friend and you think she would use a word like “hyperbole”???? The Brandiacs are trying to get this one tweeter to shut up but she’s not backing down!

  23. Powell says:

    Who was supposed to put out a contract on that underground rat that predicted when Spring would be here? Was it JNNTJ, OMIB, Foxymel? It’s freaking colldddddd out! 😬😬

  24. Powell says:

    I’m not really in the mood for Grey’s Anatomy. I watching on and off so in giving The Odd Couple another chance.

    • California35 says:

      Yes yes give it another chance, pleeease 😊 F.U. 😜

    • mrs peabody says:

      Last week on the Odd Couple wasn’t as bad as the first week so I’ll watch it another week.

      • California35 says:

        Yay 😊
        I want the show to stick – for my “Friend” 😊

        Last week, I watch an old old odd couple just to compare, i had never watched it. It was funny and i was surprised by it. I had no idea the guys were of a certain age, also I thought the actors were the ones from the movie, duh! Also both shows have the same person’s names AND careers. Again, duh! Sorry but i did not know all of that.

        • Powell says:

          Cali where have you been? I’ve probably seen the Jack and Tony version epis multiple times and the Walter and Jack movie at least 7, 8 times. I love love love it. That’s why Matthew’s is giving me pause cuz even though it’s updated so far it’s not even close to being as funny as the original.

  25. California35 says:

    Hi! So no one is watching Melbourne?!

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

      I LIVE for it — my friends all love it too!

      But I watch later ….. 😩😓

  26. mrs peabody says:

    I was working all day so I couldn’t, is it still on?

  27. Melbourne-Aussie says:

    Hi there is the new episode or the first season?

    • California35 says:

      Tonight? First episode of second season, I thought! I have to wait a few more hours.

    • TexasTart says:

      The first episode of Season 2 aired tonight. They were re-playing some of Season 1 earlier today. Does this series air in Australia before we get to see it in the US?

      • Melbourne-Aussie says:

        It’s on Foxtel here with the same sort of timing except it is 2pm here now.

        • Melbourne-Aussie says:

          sorry I meant with the same episodes as in the states

          • TexasTart says:

            Oh, that’s good! I know the US Real Housewives, they don’t air in Europe for a year or two later.

            • Melbourne-Aussie says:

              Yep I remember that with OC & BH when the conversations would start all other again when it started to air in England. We seem to get the shows pretty much on the same time line as you guys.

  28. Melbourne-Aussie says:

    In that case I won’t speak out of turn except to say Janet iis getting the bitch edit this season. And Lydia’s only friend is her mother. Sorry for the delay in response but had to ran outside to get the clothes as we are having showers.

    • California35 says:

      Cool! Thanks ☺️

    • NJBev says:

      Melbourne, are you saying the show airs at the same time there as here?
      It aired here 9pm eastern, and it airs at 2pm in your time zone?
      (this stuff always fascinates me-)

      • Melbourne-Aussie says:

        No we have had the first 2 episodes already, I am just waiting for you guys to watch so I can talk about it.

        • California35 says:

          I know of some US shows that play over there, and they are behind only a week or two. Like The Black List, at least last season was like that. I dont know if it is showing this season there yet or will.

          • Melbourne-Aussie says:

            Normally when here is a bog premier in the states they will do a big thing here that we get it the day later as was the situation for Blacklist but this season hasn’t been shown yet for whatever reason.

            • ladebra says:

              Ooooo I love Blacklist! Anything with James Spader really! Season 2 is just better than the first, and the first was GREAT! (iTunes has it😜. I wouldn’t wait)

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

    Hey all – didn’t sit to watch yet but I’m excited because my BESTIE gina is on tonight and she LOVES me- just read her timeline ! We’re thick as thieves !!!!
    No chinese whispers between us!

    👭👭💕💕💕💕

    Mrs Peabody and omib you are rocking my world with these theories up above about the Bitchards @ the reunion. Yikes ! 😱

    • Melbourne-Aussie says:

      hey there your loving of Gina should continue as she is looking good in the first episode that I’ve seen this new season.

      • NJBev says:

        I’m curious about Gambles? I’m wondering what the big “rumor” is?
        Janet def getting the bitch edit this season- that party looked like it
        was in a very odd venue, and it didn’t look like there were many people there
        at all. It kinds looked like a “staged” party.

        • Melbourne-Aussie says:

          I think that as it was a large bar it looked quite a cold event, I am presuming her family were there even just to be there for her son who made an amazing appearance. the rumors about Gambe come out in the next episode & it really is Janet stirring the pot.

          • NJBev says:

            AH-HAH!
            I did feel a huge amount of compassion for her about her son-
            she never mentioned him last season, iirc, or used him as a sympothy
            ploy and I respect that tremendously-b/c only God knows what that was like for her.
            I loved Gambels house, spectacular!!
            How much do you think that goes for?
            I also like Chyka, she reminds me of Caroline(don’t kill me)!
            The one thing about the Melbourne ladies,
            it appears that they all are very comfortable financially, and I love looking into
            their homes!
            I’m so glad you’re here, Melbourne!! this way we can pick your brain about
            your homeland and really learn something(even tho many here have been to
            Australia, I have never been) It’s the most fascinating place-

            • Melbourne-Aussie says:

              Please feel free to pick away but he warned I shall do my best but God only knows what is left in this feeble mind. Anyway, yes all the ladies are well off & live in a beverly hills niche of Melbourne. Gamble appears to live on the coast most likely Sorrento/Mt Eliza. Her home would most likely go for $3M. It does look very nice but I would suspect that its her finance’s house Dr Rick Wolfe who is an eye specialist.

              • NJBev says:

                oh man, what a let down!
                I really thought the house was hers?!!
                Well, anyway, try to re-fire up those brain cells!! lol
                cuz as you know, we are a nosy bunch!!

              • Orson says:

                I have some friends who live in Melbourne or Victoria. But I bet you don’t know them, so I won’t play the “do you know” game. One of them tries to tell me that there are no such thing as dropbears. Like I’d fall for that! 😉

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Girl I watched the whole first season today and let me tell you I LOVE GINA!! She is everything!! Her hair her make up her fake tan-she’s perfect!! Her attitude is fabulous!! I love her!!

      • Melbourne-Aussie says:

        You are the funniest. Gina god love her I couldn’t imagine the time & dedication it would take to keep that hair, tan & makeup & let us not forget the bling dresses up.
        She is in a class of her own. And I must say she was on fire the other day while doing a promo with Pettifleur (I can never say that name without scrunching my face) she was ready to knock her out as PF was insisting that the US was watching only this season & hadn’t seen the season before. The look on Gina face was can you SU & go away. the presenters thought it was the funniest interaction.

        • California35 says:

          I love that she herself mentions things about her look, she own it and is proud but also can make fun of it. That’s pretty cool. I dont know if its because she knows some may make fun of it, either way i like that.

          Im with you, wondering how long it takes her to get ready, every….single…day…

          • Melbourne-Aussie says:

            I know iits that thing about say it yourself before someone else does & it won’t hurt as much. But I truly believe she sees herself as looking the best she can in this way. In a male dominated field & no longer 21 or 35 she tries alittle harder.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Gina is full on dedicated to looking all done up at all times! The tennis outfit with the heels!! OMG I love her!!
          Why did Pettifleur say that? People have been going on and on about RH of Melbourne over here! What kind of name is Pettifleur -it’s hard to spell and equally hard to say!!
          I hope this season is great and I hope Gina stays exactly the way she is!

          • Melbourne-Aussie says:

            She was trying alittle too hard to find her place as a newbie but she has very few redeeming qualities. As for Gina staying the same that she appears to be doing.

            • NJBev says:

              I thought she was incredibly rude to Gambel at the party!
              (She didn’t look “all that” so special in her talking head-)
              who was she to make such comments about the earrings
              (aren’t you tired of those-OUCH) I am already wary of her-

  30. Melbourne-Aussie says:

    Lydia needs to shut up, her smut talk isn’t funny nor does it make her appear to be with it. You just want to shake your head at her. Janet’s plastic surgeries are taking a turn for the worst. And her hairdresser Oh my, didn’t know there was anyone like that in the world let alone in melbourne.

    • I was going to say that they all look like they have had some touch ups but Janet looks like her skin is stretched so tight it will rip…what is that bump on her forehead… I watched the first season when it came out online….love this show.

    • California35 says:

      Yes i remember that! Janet’s dace. I love her make up.

      About the make up we were talking of Gina, ALL of them wear a lot of make up, not just Gina. Wow!

  31. California35 says:

    Im watching it now… 😊 but a bit delayed to skip commercials.

  32. California35 says:

    I believe that about a friendhsip never being the same after its been fractured. They can be sibil with each other. Move on, but don’t get too close or trust.

    Hahaha it is funny Kydia and Gine in the limo alone…..haha

    • California35 says:

      Lydia and Gina ~ silence

      • California35 says:

        P.S. Gina ~ bababoom her top.

        • Melbourne-Aussie says:

          Lydia should have left quietly with her friend Andrea last season. Loved the slap Gina gave her in the car when she asked if she hadn’t broken up with her latest husband, & that she had heard about it from 3 sources. The woman knows how to hand it out.

          • California35 says:

            Yeah, I agree. Lydia should have left based in last season. If she continues her ways, from what I’ve seen talking, she is still the same.

  33. California35 says:

    Oh Janet’s son 😔 I’m so glad he is doing well.

  34. California35 says:

    Oh wow Janet describing Gina as she is coming in. I thought she was her friend.

    • Melbourne-Aussie says:

      No that ship has sailed towards the end of last season they had a falling out as janet jumped onto the Andrea train. Complaining about her lateness etc.janet has a snarky side & appears to be in competition with all the single ladies.

      • California35 says:

        Ah true, she did tours the end and the reunion. I didnt think she would start so strong about. Gina when she is just meeting the new girls. The new girl Gambler didn’t like that, and may become Gina’s friend. Good thing because it looks like Gina is alone.

  35. California35 says:

    Oh wow oh wow necklace, everyone was excited to see it… Oh Come on! Lol

    • Melbourne-Aussie says:

      In her own universe & I still don’t know what she is talking about.

      • California35 says:

        Hahaha

      • California35 says:

        she used to say a slow “wow” a lot on last season. I think they even made fun of that on the reunion. Funny that she took it as something fun to make it into a necklace. I did noticed that the camera focused on it when she was putting it on and talking to her mom (her only friend :-P). I still didn’t get it then, until the party where some none wives asked about it, then her talking head. wow, lol

  36. California35 says:

    Wait a minute! Where are the husbands?! I mean of the older wives. Hmmm shi shi shi wonderful husband lol

  37. Melbourne-Aussie says:

    Chyka’s husband isn’t featured too often but I am sure that Janet will be back on as soon as he has something to sell. Lydia’s I think we only saw if the first episode, I hope he is appalled by her mouth especially her behavior towards his son lat season.

    • California35 says:

      Ah ok. I was very surprised, and what made me think of them, seeing shi shi girl dancing and not seeing her husband 😋

  38. California35 says:

    Melbourne -Aussie Ok I better try to go to sleep, i still have one more working day. Im glad i wasnt alone watching this, Chat tomorrow, have a lovely rest of your Friday 😊

  39. Melbourne-Aussie says:

    Good night, don’t work too hard tomorrow. I’m off to dinner Ciao

  40. ladebra says:

    WhiteTrashGirl! I read your answer to my post on the previous blog! Such good points, and so well thought out, and I wish this ipad would let me copy and paste it her. And if I figure it out I will. I agree with you x1000.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Was it this comment ? I so agree with It!!

      WhiteTrashGal: Here’s the thing about Kim’s unfinished accusation: it got everyone speculating about Rinna and Harry, and much of it is not good. So the damage was done, as Kim and Brandi knew it would be, in my opinion. It was all on camera, after all.

      There is nothing harmless in spreading rumors, false or otherwise. It hurts people’s reputations, families, and relationships. Not to mention, as professional public figures, Harry and Rinna are getting trashed in spades.

      I’m sure this was Kim’s payback to LisaR. I have no doubt about it. But the logic was irrational, immature, and just another deflection. Harry did nothing to Kim, after all. If LisaR is guilty of going with the probably directed “sobriety” storyline, LisaR still had no responsibility for Kim’s relapse on camera, as many have stated. Kim did it all to herself and to everyone around her she effected.

      Also, why does Kim think LisaR is more culpable than Brandi, who was talking about Kim’s addiction issues on camera to others as much as LisaR, as well as betraying Kim’s confidence by revealing her “patch” and “not the half of it” secrets?

      One more point I think needs reiterating: YOLANDA was the one who first brought up drinking and driving when she made the “everyone share something deep” group participation request. It was clear where it was going. Kim knew it. Brandi knew it. LisaR knew it, they all knew it. I’d be surprised if the director didn’t give them that entire set up to keep the focus of this storyline going, with LisaR given an opportunity to apologize to Kim. But Kim had other ideas…or maybe it just got out of hand fast.

      I don’t believe Rinna would have agreed to put her husband in that position, though, so I think that low blow was a Brandi/Kim-production. Rinna saw she’d been trapped too late, and that’s why I think she went so ballistic. She knew what Kim was doing and she knew how it would play out.

      Just my thoughts, of course.

      • ladebra says:

        Yes! Thank you JNNTJ! How was Maggie’s spa day? Hope you guys get some sunshine really soon.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Surprisingly Maggie didn’t want to ANYTHING yesterday!! She was all cozy in her bed watching movies -I only saw for snacks and meals…we kept out pjs on all day and did nothing! It was the perfect snow day…now I’m over it and I want the snow to melt but we have freezing temps today-everything is icy! Weekend looks bright and sunny and warm-we may hit 40 degrees!! I will be sweltering!!

      • T-Rex says:

        Oooo, thanks for reposting somehow I missed WTGirl’s post which I applaud! Let’s remember that THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBATLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONGSTFUBrandi is schooling SpaceCadetDRUGADDICTAlcoholicKim on the art of throwing out a LIE like a Bomb and not worry about the collateral damages caused by that LIE! Oh and THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBATLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONGSTFUBrandi also made it clear that her BFF SpaceCadetDRUGADDICTAlcoholicKim was also SUICIDAL, yep she said that if she knew they were talking about her sobriety she woudl KILL HERSELF, then dropped the YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW BAD IT IS, THINGS HAVE BEEN ALREADY DONE, Etc. That was before her beach time chat with her other Friend Jennifer where she again herself questioned the sobriety of SpaceCadetDRUGADDICTAlcoholicKim and inferred that she was indeed NOT SOBER at that time

        • Powell says:

          I forgot about her mentioning suicide. And yes she spoke w/Jennifer “behind Kim’s back”. Will Kim confront Bobble about any this? Kim has lambasted everyone else for having these concerns but has labeled them as traders, spreading lies, hurting her kids.

      • jezzibel says:

        I think you might be giving Kim and Brandi too much credit for coming up with something that Machiavellian, Kim might have been smart..at one time but she’s addled her brain and has proven that she has next to no memory recall, and Brandi thought Winston Churchill was a famous black guy(so in other words a f***ing moron) . I think that lemon-lyme was the master planner, and she cluded with Brandi and Kim on it , only Kim took the ball and and played a different game with it.
        Yoland is smart, organized and a meticulous planner, and I suspect that her claiming limited mental capacity is away to keep her hands clean from the spectacle that Brandi & Kim are making.

      • Powell says:

        So so agree w/WTG. That’s why I want to know after seeing how Bobble has also talked about Kim, brought up the patch, etc, what is Kim going to say to Bobble at the reunion? Will she continue w/Bobble is her BFF, is the only one that’s had her back, even more so than her sis? 😏

  41. ladebra says:

    I love Kelly Clarkson. She was on WWHL last night and it was a fun show! Love her music.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I love her too-she’s funny and so HAPPY!! Great sense of humor-she seemed to be having a lot of fun with the WWHL laid back vibe-she was great!!

    • T-Rex says:

      Saw her on CBS This Morning this past Sunday and she was awesome, just so great, down to earth, etc. I watched American Idol that season when she won and knew that girl would be going places. It’s awesome that she hasn’t compromised her integrity or values along the way just to fit in or make money. She hasn’t sold her soul the proverbial devil like so many others have for their fifteen minutes of fame.

      • ladebra says:

        Kelly is the only Idol I participated in (voted). Her music is all over my iPad. Since You’ve Been Gone is my car sing along in traffic song lol. And for her to marry Reba’s son! I hope they are deliriously happy forever 😀

  42. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. 🙂

  43. T-Rex says:

    GOOD MORNING,

    First week of March and time for the Ho-Wives Real Estate Round Up.

    As one MsExit4 notified to all of us, ChezOverpricedMcMansionOfTheConvictFelonJuicy’s has been removed from the market. As I noted, this could be due to several reasons.
    1) They are changing realty companies, every source in NJ has posted that the home is receiving NO TRAFFIC, aka, no interested buyers for the property and sometimes homeowners switch agencies thinking that will help, then the property will re-list within a week or so.
    2) The Rumors are true and they indeed stopped paying their mortgage, March 1st would have been the 90 day mark when the banks decide to re-evaluate your loan and make a decision whether to Foreclose or Refinance. NO WAY any bank Refinances that mess, there are liens, judgments, etc. it would cost the bank too much money in just filing and fighting LisPendens. that they would choose to foreclose. Now some folks may say, “hey my neighbor didn’t pay their mortgage for six months before the banks foreclosed”. Well that was in the days of thousands of foreclosures, the foreclosure rate is much lower today, plus this place has a lot of legal issues
    3) They somehow won the Lottery and no one noticed and they can finally pay all their bills and pay off all their creditors(and unicorns have finally arrived, the aliens have come to save our planet, and peace has broken out all over the world because Rebecca’s Dragons have shown up and will incinerate anyone that is not on their best behavior!)
    The ConvictFelonJuicy’s home in the Jersey Shore is still for sale at the price of 315k., it’s been a horrible winter and that could be why this hasn’t sold and very little “traffic” has been through the place. I would think that by the end of May if this hasn’t sold, a price reduction would be needed, or they may take it off the market. It also has a mortgage, so if they aren’t paying their first mortgage, I would highly doubt they are paying this one.
    Their Third Home, which is only in ConvictFelonTeresa’s name is also still for sale, and thought this was in Foreclosure but it’s also just listed as for sale, they had this rented out a few months back, this is possibly why it’s out of Foreclosure

    OverSharingShannonBeador has again placed their home back on the market still at the rate of 12.99 million dollars. They had listed it in October for 11.98 with no takers, took it off the market then re-listed at 12.98. I do not understand the logic of OC real estate, but when one can’t sell their home at a reduced price, I don’t see them selling the home after increasing the price, but I am not a real estate agent.
    McJudgeMcNeedyYOLOLymonHead, home still listed for sale at the whopping $24.9 million mark, no takers, again it’s an odd piece of property it’s not directly on the ocean, OH and they are now building a home on the property in front of their home according to the Bird’s Eye Satellite views of the area. I think that they really aren’t all THAT interested in selling, it’s more the hey if someone will pay us that much we will sell, but we aren’t going to lower the price. Again it’s going to take someone who just falls in love with the place.

    Well, that’s the Roundup, no one else has any homes for sale. OldCraggyBitchRamona is still in the very early stages of their divorce settlements, so nothing has moved on the real estate front there, I believe they own four properties together for sure, and there may be a fifth property, still trying to find out for sure, so I think that settlement could get messy, I would hope not. Most of the Ho-Wives of Atlanta don’t actually own anything. BHills most women own their own homes but everyone is content where they are, much to the chagrin of Murray probably. I haven’t really delved into the Ladies of London or Melbourne yet, but that might be added in the future.

    If anyone hears of a Ho-Wife listing their home, let me know I will get the information on that immediately.
