Real Housewives of Melbourne – Murder Mystery Party

Real Housewives of Melbourne

Season 2 Episode 2 ~ Murder Mystery Party

by Reality_Bytes

(The Complete Blog)

Before I start the recap, let me just say thank you to all those who acknowledged my last blog and welcomed me to ‘Lynn’s Place’…what with being out of town Fri-Sun, and then comatose all day Monday, plus the problems with my comments not going through…I knew I wouldn’t be able to catch y’all individually without accidentally missing someone (a fate worse than death to me), so I wanted to take a minute and thank all of you for the warmest of welcomes, and I am glad you enjoyed the blog, typos and all…Grrrrr!

NOTE: In the interest of consistency/brevity, when the ladies are speaking one-on-one with the camera, I see that as some kind of Diary Chat (like they have in Big Brother where they are in a separate location talking smack about the others), and it will be reflected as DC in my blogs!

Petti Wants a Bentley

I think I hear a little Meagan Trainer in my head… “It’s all about that BASS Bentley…’bout that Bentley…’bout that Bentley…

We open this week with Pettifleur heading to the Bentley dealership so she can pick out a little trinket for her 50th birthday…so what if they cost $450k!

Petti/DC…“they are beautiful, classy and sophisticated – just like me”

Petti is being a bit like Dana Wilkey (from RHOC and her $25k sunglasses) with her Chanel bag…and Bentley…she feels the need to re-emphasize the branding over and over…it is obviously very important to her to keep reminding us of her status and the long road to success for her.

The translation of Pettifleur from French to English is fairly straightforward – “little flower”. Apparently the translation to Aussie goes a bit further and comes to a screeching stop at “landing strip”…OMG! Mirrors on the floor of a Bentley so you can see your what while you are driving?

And the award goes to? The car salesman…1) for dropping Janet’s name, and 2) for his extended presence with Petti while still maintaining a straight face and other Bentley ‘decorumisms’ (I may have just made up a new word)…while Petti asks him if they can install mirrors on the floor of the car so when she is driving she can look down and see her ‘landing strip’ because of course, she goes COMMANDO. The salesman was a brave soul!

Lydia & Figaro

We have Lydia trying to dress up poor Figaro to go for a walk, and Lydia’s mom (Lena) is there to help as a stylist I presume.

Dogs wearing ‘outfits’ may look cute for the camera, but it embarrasses the dog, it really does. Did you watch Figaro run and hide behind the pillow? Did you see him on the street looking left then right hoping his friends weren’t out for their walks for fear they would see him?

Poor Figaro…and he seems like such a sweet dog too. Believe it or not though, my main concern is if Lena has to help Lydia choose an outfit for her dog, should Lydia ever be unescorted in public? Is it safe? Does she know how to cross the street by herself? Hmmm… Guess we will be seeing a lot of Lena, eh? Now you know ‘the rest of the story’.

Gamble & Dog Training

Having trained obedience dogs in my past I know it takes 6 minutes to train the dog and 6 weeks to train the owner, so it doesn’t surprise me at all that Gamble has hired help for Cash since he seems to have exquisite taste in shoes – and Louboutin seems to head the list of favorites. (SECRET #1 – close the door to the closet.)

Cash also seems to favor chewing the crotches out of clothes, and Gamble shares with Brad (the trainer) a story about going to lunch one day only to find out the pants she was wearing at the time had previously been visited by Cash, and the crotch had a hole chewed in it. (SECRET #2 – check your clothes before you put them on.) Brad had a simple solution:

 Treat your dog as a human and he will treat you like a dog.

Treat your Dog like a dog and he will treat you as a human.

(Loosely translated that begs the question of who is training whom?)

Gotta tell you, other than some ditzy stuff, I am liking Gamble because she seems a bit unpretentious so far and doesn’t get as rattled as say oh I don’t know…Janet, but maybe it is still too early in the season still. Time will tell.

Rick, Luke, & Gamble Have Dinner

During dinner, Gamble and Rick decide to host a witch-themed “Murder Mystery Party” for all the ladies. (SECRET #3 – hide everything that can be construed as a weapon before the party starts when inviting these ladies, or there might really be a murder!)

(Lord, please make my wish come true to see Jackie in a Witch hat…Amen.)

Jackie, Janet and Petti at the Costume Shop

Well Jackie is always up for a party isn’t she? (I assume there will be booze) and is now joined by Janet and Petti to search for just the right costume for the party.

Janet all in black must be the wicked witch of death, and Jackie all in Red calls herself a hoochie-mama harlot, and Petti has chosen purple and seems to believe the shopkeeper is her PA (personal assistant). She keeps screaming from the dressing room and the poor gal must have made 50 trips back there with various parts of the costume, yet for the life of me I don’t know what she was dressing as, I just know Jackie was encouraging her to Twerk her behind off!

Jackie, Janet, Chyka & Gamble Lunch

Moving right along to the “ladies who lunch”, Chyka and Gamble head into a restaurant to meet the “J’s” (Jackie and Janet) and what a surprise – The first topic of conversation is Gina!

Gamble started the conversation by saying that she loved having lunch with Gina the other day, and lo and behold Janet immediately gets on the defensive and says she couldn’t meet me because she is very busy with this big court case and it’s taking up all her time, so she wasn’t taking a lunch… (I really thought her head would spin off here.) Gamble calmly states in an ‘I-hate-to-lick-the-red-off-your-lollipop’ moment – “it was on a Saturday,” LOL. Janet, who was fully ready to pounce, looked somewhat deflated.

The Other Lunch Across Town With Petti and Lydia

In a galaxy far far away…no doubt orchestrated by Janet, we catch Lydia walking into another restaurant to meet Petti. Lydia gives Petti a hug and then promptly zips up Petti’s pants, and Petti smiles as Lydia pats her on the arm with a knowing smile.

They sit down and although I can’t see Lydia’s wrists to see if she has her WOW bracelet on, I do notice she has on two WOW necklaces, Hmm…wonder why? Did she feel the need for double WOW protection or just not notice when she put her necklace on that she already had one WOW on already? We may never know.

Lydia starts the conversation by asking Petti what she thinks of Gamble. In random order:

  • Her dress sense is a train wreck quality (I am paraphrasing on all these)
  • She’s not that bright
  • She’s dumb dumb dumb
  • She could use less plastic surgery
  • She is awfully bony, she could use some meat on her bones

Hearing this, Lydia gathers her courage and asks Petti what was her first thoughts about her?

Petti answers “pretentious”

A stunned Lydia responds “WOW” (anyone else see the WOW coming?)

Back to Jackie, Janet, Chyka & Gamble Lunch

They are gossiping about their fellow cast members. It really isn’t safe to not attend their functions is it, because you must surely always be the topic of conversation? This time it is Petti being dissected discussed and Janet all but hyperventilates before she blurts out “I don’t like her!”

She then goes on to discuss what happened at the Costume Shop. Once that was said, (and everyone was appropriately appalled) Gamble pipes up and says she knows quite a lot about Petti actually, and that unless you have money, she won’t want a whole lot to do with you, and then sums up using the phrase “Nouveau Riche”.

Some like to use that label to differentiate the classes of rich…as in ‘newly minted rich’ (Nouveau) or ‘old money rich’ (trust fund babies like the show ‘Southern Charm’)

Now we have offended Chyka…

DC/Chyka:  Honestly, I think that’s horrible.  I don’t even like that word.  I think it’s unnecessary.”

I would have liked Chyka to bring that up directly to the ladies instead of the DC, but I understand why she didn’t because she may have been called that at one time or another. As wonderful as she and her husband both are, they are the ones who made their money with their successful business acumen…it wasn’t inherited.

Ok, so now we move forward to Janet bringing up the fact that she and Petti both work in the same industry (property development) yet she thinks it is uncanny she has NEVER heard of her before she joined the cast of this show! (If you will remember from the first episode, I said I didn’t know what JANET did, only what she called herself, a ‘property developer’- winky winky)…so she blurts out “WHO THE EFF IS PETTIFLEUR? (Oh Lord, Janet might actually have a point here. Whether or not they traveled in the same circles, in the same city it seems they each would have “HEARD” of the other one…Hmm…

Gamble (did I mention I am liking her?) mentions that every time she and Petti run into one another, Petti has the need to critique what she is wearing…her dresses, and jewelry and everything about her, and Jackie pipes up with some comment I only heard part of about the Fashion Police, and on and on and on.

Racing back to the other Lunch Across Town With Petti and Lydia

Here we find Lydia being a brave soul and bringing up Petti’s appearance…holy moly did she really say this?... “you have a very unusual look about you, which I love”, Lydia says! Petti takes it as a compliment and almost preens right on cue.

Lydia asks if she has Indian heritage in her, and Petti responds with no, she is a mixture of Portuguese, Swiss, Dutch, and something else. Lydia smiles wanly…

DC/Lydia: “she is a bit of a mongrel of a woman – I mean, there was some Thai… and… oh I forget the other”.



I adore them saving the best for last, don’t you? It seems Petti has invited Gina to her home…maybe for drinks or something, it really isn’t very clear.

Petti/DC: “I felt I really connected with Gina at Janet’s party, she gets me and I get her…I got her jokes and she got mine”.

(She should have left her comments right there, but no, she went on and intimated that Gina was UP on the same level as she was. RUT RO Scoobydoo!)

The one thing Gina has NEVER done, even in Season 1 during all the bullying was establish a pecking order with the ladies according to wealth or success ~ brains maybe, or lack thereof ~ ok now I am just joking. Methinks Petti needs to tread lightly here. It is clear she is looking for an ally here so she is trying to hook her wagon to the Gina star!

Next Petti informs her she’s writing a book named ‘Switch the Bitch’.

Gina tried several times asking her what it was about and all she ever got was something about a bitch, an inner one, and an outer one, and to me Petti wasn’t making a lick of sense, but Gina held her facial expressions to a minimum, and I suppose being a Barrister has disciplined her in many ways that we could only imagine, eh?

DC/Gina: “I wasn’t really sure after all that what the book is about – but it’s something about bitches!”

Gina isn’t sure but she might have dozed off while all the bitches were being explained and if so…oops…her bad, LOL!

Gina then saves the gathering by bringing up the Murder Mystery Party and asking Petti if she would like to ride with her in her Limo…which Petti eats up…I mean every last drop! GOOD FOR YOU GINA…you expertly figured what she needed to do to quit talking about all those bitches!

Rick & Gamble’s Proposal Dinner

Rick is just a cutie, isn’t he? Certainly not used to being on camera but as he and Gamble were having dinner he stumbles sweetly through a marriage proposal that totally stuns Gamble and leaves her stuttering incoherently until she asks if he is serious, and he replies ‘YES’.

Wits about her now she says she would love to marry him and he doesn’t understand how much that means to her and she loves his last name. He counters with she can take it if she wants to, and she replies she does!

DC/Rick: “Gamble is a wonderful step mother to my children and a really positive influence.  She’s the focus of my whole life, not only my whole life, but the whole life of my family.  In a sense she’s the center of it.”

Awwwww…fuzzy bunnies… fuzzy bunnies… fuzzy bunnies…

The Murder Mystery Party

Remember when I prayed to see Jackie in a witch hat? Prayers answered!


Geez, here I am coming up on the deadline to get this blog done and I have the whole party to go and the morning aftermath as well…sheesh…back to bullet points I guess…and you will love using your imagination and innuendo anyhow:

  • Gamble and Rick have outdone themselves in the decoration department…the place is stunning
  • Janet spends way too much time chasing Rick around the party
  • DC/Gina: “Janet was completely locked in to Rick and if the opportunity presented itself, Janet would be ‘in there’”
  • Lots of horrific fake body parts around to offset the TOTALLY VEGETARIAN menu…love that they did that
  • DC/Petti: “Rick Looks like Gamble’s Grandfather” (Oh honey chile that is gonna come back to bite you some day!)
  • Lydia comes dressed as the Snow White witch with a bowl of poison apples…nicely played!
  • DC/Gamble: “I always wanted a basket of poison apples – there’s plenty of people I could give them to”
  • Gina thought the food was a work of art
  • Rick is somewhat the moderator of the mystery portion
  • They are all assigned ‘characters’ for the mystery portion of the ‘whodunnit’ but no one can remember the name of the dead person which is always good for a laugh in the conversation, and no doubt caused by too many drinkie-poos before the game started.
  • These ladies kept asking ‘who the eff is Selma?” (the dead person)
  • Lydia’s special power was the Mind Control card…anyone else see the irony I see here?
  • As the game winds down Petti starts in telling everyone she is writing a book about bitches…AGAIN…but she can’t seem to keep the attention of the ladies, and ends up sitting there pouting
  • DC/Petti: “there were bitches at the table who weren’t interested and they switched off – they should have been switching the bitch and switched on”
  • Rick announces he and Gamble are engaged, and everyone is happy for them, they all give congratulations or hugs…some more sincere than others

Chyka, Janet, and Gamble gather the day following the party for drinks or lunch or coffee (it is a bit unclear, or like Gina I might have dozed off…)

They ask Gamble about her engagement ring and Gamble replies she wants a “cushion cut”. (Oh, she lost me here, so I looked it up… With a cushion cut, the diamond is literally in the shape of a cushion – so, a square cut with rounded edges…ta da!)

Chyka tells the ladies that she has heard a rumor that Gina is actually engaged too!  That comment didn’t gain legs, so Gamble is given a quick tutorial by Chyka about gossip, good vs evil I guess, and we can see Gamble sitting there wondering just where all this is headed…all that is missing is the fingers drumming on the table.

Janet then bursts on the scene unable to constrain herself and her own gossip by blurting out… “I’ve heard a bit of gossip that I’m not interested in sharing”. WHAT? That makes absolutely no sense whatsoever…if you are not interested in sharing, why bring it up at all?

Gamble asks is it about one of the ladies? PREGNANT PAUSE FADES INTO DEAD SILENCE. “Oh”, Gamble says. “is it about me?”

Chyka asks Gamble if she wants to know what is being said about her, and Gamble replies sure, why not?

Chyka says it relates to the variety of men she has been with…some court case over a car which was a local story on the news one day or a newspaper story or something.

Gamble didn’t seem to get flustered by this, and she even tried to tone it down and almost support them by saying “I’m not worried about it as there are no skeletons in my closet. I know my life”. 

“Janet-the-blurt” continues saying that ‘other’ people are saying she was a call girl and a stripper. OK NOW the $hit hits the fan, and Gamble gets offended noted in her facial expressions, and no doubt had to count to 10 before simply replying “I have never been either.”

Relentless in her efforts, not to mention the roll she is on at this point, “Janet-the-blurt” goes on to tell her that it’s common knowledge that Gamble participates in sex parties!

How Gamble manages to keep it together at this point is anyone’s guess but she calmy asks where all of this gossip is coming from. Janet replies by saying it is ‘viral’ in the people who she knows, and that it’s coming from many different, totally independent groups… and when pressed by Gamble, it seems it all boils down to Carlos as the instigator…I would be for opening a can of whoop-a$$ on that boy next time I saw him!

DC/Gamble:  “I have a lot of friends who are Personal Trainers and they’re really hot. They came over while I was coming back from a real estate conference, and put up all these photos on FB, but it wasn’t a sex party! It was just girls having a swim. I felt ambushed. It felt pre-meditated. Coming up with such malicious bullshit is absolutely vile and they should just go home and have a effing shower and wash their brains out, their skulls out, their filthy minds and get a effing grip on life. Why don’t they stop and do something for the world and stop being bitches”?  Great question Gamble…I’m all in on that one!

Enough for one hour’s worth of TV entertainment? I think so too!

So…Andy Cohen…Here is your new drinking game for one of your “Watch What happens Live” shows…Every time you hear the word “BITCH” – drink like you have just been called a stripper!

Until the next episode…

    Good morning, new day, fresh start

    We are finally having a rainy weekend – it’s shocking – not the rain, but all the sunny weekends we’ve had this winter. If this is climate change in action we may no longer have our seniors heading to Arizona when they retire – it’s plenty comfortable up here in the northwest, but don’t tell anyone.

    I’m heading to sunny? Florida later this week, so if the blog timing seems off bear with me. Hopefully my dad still has “the internet” hooked up in his condo.

    • Powell says:

      Yes a rainy day in MD. The last remnants of snow are out of here. Now the many, many, many potholes are being uncovered. UGH! The aftermath.
      You have a fantastic time in Florida. You have to waive to Diva and T-Rex. 🌅🌅🐊🌴🌊🏂

    It’s going to be 90! Good grief. It’s time to hit the beach 😜

  3. ladebra says:

    This is for Maggie!

    • not THAT Jill says:

      Thank you Deb!!! I’m going to show her right now!!

    • Veena (NMD) says:

      I miss her on Downton Abbey already.

      • Barb (Just wondering in Jersey) says:

        I miss Downton Abbey already. At least they don’t make you wait 2 years like Doc Martin.

        • I LOVE Doc Martin!!!

          • ladebra says:

            New season starting in April!

            • Barb (Just wondering in Jersey) says:

              For real?

              • ladebra says:

                I have been watching the old episodes, and I swear I thought I heard the season 7 was starting on April 7, but I just looked on the PBS sites and can’t find it listed! So maybe not 😦 darn it.

                • Barb (Just wondering in Jersey) says:

                  I was looking thru some doc martin blogs and if I recall correctly they are just starting to film the season this month. Probably won’t get it here til 2016. It’s just too darn long to wait and then you get what 6-8 episodes and then it’s done. Waaa.

          • Powell says:

            I don’t watch on a regular basis but I really like it.

        • Powell says:

          I have the last 2 epis to watch.

        • plainviewsue says:

          I actually rewatched the Downton finale this afternoon with this miserable rain. OMG, how I loved it. Carson and Mrs. Hughes brought tears to my eyes again. When Anna saw Bates. I love Baxter and Mosely together; would love to see them become an official couple. I love the Crawleys, but I think I like the downstairs people even more!! And I want Andy the footman to be gay so Thomas can find love too!!!

  4. Veena (NMD) says:

    Lisa V is on a picture posting spree on twitter – it started with her swan photo – just amazing how tame they are.

    • mrs peabody says:

      I feel like I’m in a very high end store when I look at her closest. I asked my husband to move all his stuff out of our closet, I’m going to have a LIsa closet, only lots smaller and with one island only and a very small one. Now I just have to buy pink blouses and jewelry and now more sun glasses. I’ll post all my pics to twitter as soon as my husbands does what I asked and I get the closet set up and get a twitter account. LOL

    • ladebra says:

      They must have imprinted on her big time! Swans can be very aggressive, can’t they? Or maybe I’m confusing them with the goose who chased me around Lake Balboa trying to peck me to death lol.

      • Powell says:

        Poor ladebra. I think Lisa’s love for animals makes them comfortable with her. I’m sure they have their moments w/her. Hey they’re living the life and probably pinch themselves everyday. 🙂

  5. mrs peabody says:

    on my way to Costco, anyone need anything?

  6. VV™ says:

    Does anybody know what Andy is doing in Lindon? Is he with the Ladies of London cast? I don’t know why I’m getting the feeling it is related to that show. #just a thought

  7. Powell says:

    Good afternoon everyone. 😊

  8. ladebra says:

    She’s baaack. First tweet sice Feb. wonder why she didn’t pick up the phone?

  9. Veena (NMD) says:

    I tried to post this a few days ago but posted the wrong link – she resurfaced a few days ago

  10. not THAT Jill says:

    Lisa Vanderpump is tweeting up a storm today-apparently someone asked if she does her own tweeting and she said of course! She then said she will prove by posting pics of whatever anyone asked (within reason)-she made good on her end. I love her sneaky shade!! I know people say she’s too busy to get caught up in the drama of the other HWs but this makes it’s clear that she has time to play her games…she’s a sneaky shady queen and I’m enjoying it!! She also made sure we all know she has been writing her own blog for all 5 seasons without any help. She pays attention to EVERYTHING!!!

    • VV™ says:

      Are you actually saying she’s not busy? She is busy! It’s Saturday morning for her and she’s happy she’s approaching 1 million followers on Twitter. That’s what started it all this morning. Being busy doesn’t mean she cannot take a few minutes to interact with her fans. I can guarantee you almost bet you. She’s working Today.
      Do I need to repeat she’s busy? Yes, she is!

      • not THAT Jill says:

        VV-chill!! I’m saying she’s not too busy to know what’s going on with the other HWs-I’m saying she does find time to involve herself in the drama.
        You don’t need to reprimand me VV-nor do you need to tell me what Lisa is doing-unless you are sitting next to her and her swans you have no idea what she is doing-you are assuming she is busy just like I’m assuming she has plenty do time for drama. No need to repeat yourself-and no need to explain what busy means!

    • Veena (NMD) says:

      At this point all Lisa is doing is sitting back and watching Brandi implode. Brandi’s biggest mistake was thinking she could get a great storyline by having a feud with Lisa – she’s so jillzarin.

    • plainviewsue says:

      Oh, how I love her. Two DM’s from her yesterday, one in which she said Good Morning sweetie!!! Can I say again how much I adore her!!!!!???????

  11. These British broads have bad hair…

  12. not THAT Jill says:

    It’s a rainy ugly Saturday in NY-I have been lounging around in my PJ’s all day…time to shower and make myself presentable for an night -birthday celebration for my bestie!! I hate getting dressed and ready when it’s raining-my hair doesn’t like rain!!!!
    Enjoy your evening all-play nice! XOXO
    🍻🍻🚬🚬🚬🍻🍻🍺🍻🍺🚬🚬🚬🚬🚬 CHEERS!!

    • mrs peabody says:

      It’s raining out here in Washington too. Hate going out in the rain.

      • ladebra says:

        I’m ready to learn a rain dance. .. It wouldn’t be pretty but I would make the sacrifice to bring some rain. It’s a shame we can’t build a pipeline across country bringing all that melted snow and flood water to So California. It’s really very serious. One source I heard on tv said we have one year of water in the reservoirs. That doesn’t sound like enough 😦

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      Have fun and have some drinks for me! 😉
      I hate having to go out and do my hair when it rains here.

    • chismosa-irresponsible conjecture, rubbish, assumptions, innuendo, & gossip!! says:

      It’s not my birthday tonight. 😜

  13. Kyle gave a quick interview to TMZ- denied the wine glass was a movie prop- and why haven’t I ever noticed how SEKSEEEE Mauricio is? He is a fine specimen of a man….

  14. The amsterDamn episode is on AGAIN.

    You know Yolanda has a hella nerve telling Kyle God gave her the job if taking care of her sister. How is that being a friend to either one of them? And who died and left her in charge? Ugh.


    • not THAT Jill says:

      It really bugs me that Kim and Brandi act like them being called a drunk and a pill popper by Lisa and Eileen is life changing and damaging-did they not think the cameras were rolling when they got drunk and high…it’s all so stupid.

      • I have a funny feeling either LisaR or a Eileen is going to get some kind if a bitch edit- or something is going to come out- that will completely change our opinion of them…

        Because even tho I like Eileen, I’m noticing a coldness in her I hadn’t seen before…

        Kim & Brandi are just delusional dumb f*cks if they think that bravo wouldn’t air their drinking and drugging and that we wouldn’t somehow notice.

        I know It bugs you but it kinda makes me laugh in a SMH way.

    • mrs peabody says:

      That really bugged me too, why is it Kyle’s job to take care of her older sister, that’s Kathy’s job. Just kidding, it’s no one’s job, Kim is a grown a** woman who needs to take care of herself. Kyle just needs to cut her off when she is like this.

  15. Barb (Just wondering in Jersey) says:

    Between my desktop my kindle and WiFi I am about to start hurling things around here. Nothing works right!

  16. stellastars21 says:

    HELP!!! Everyone here is very helpful and yall have great ideas. And I’m not just sucking up. Lol. I need ideas to promote my website I can’t afford much right now. I’ve started a Twitter campain promo but it is on a small scale. I promoted my Facebook page on a small scale. And I purchased a small mailing list from Vistaprint. My credit card is gonna max out soon so anyone have any free ideas?

    • Leeza’s 4th husband is 13 years younger….

    • plainviewsue says:

      Poor Kit………………………………

    • kit9 says:

      Yeah, I finished my recap last night and unbelievably, I found Brandi the less annoying of the two. Ugh.

      • Really? Can’t wait for your recap!

        • kit9 says:

          I had several snarky things about Leeza but removed most of them because I didn’t want offend anyone by ripping on Leeza’s relentless cheeriness. I didn’t want to be too harsh cause she seems like a nice enough lady. lol. But another of her habits was just too much to be ignored!

          • chismosa-irresponsible conjecture, rubbish, assumptions, innuendo, & gossip!! says:

            Oh man I wish I could see your UNEDITED version!

            She IS relentlessly cheery and it’s annoying !

      • Amber says:

        I can’t stomach listening to the podcast again and looking forward to reading what you heard, because unlike other Brandi interviews, Brandi didn’t come across as “unfiltered” or even in-charge. To me she sounded as if she was carefully attempting to impress Leeza.

        That’s my overall impression … I know I’m influenced by my opinion of Brandi and appreciation of Leeza because of her good work on behalf of caregivers of family members with Alzheimer’s — something once close to my heart.

        • kit9 says:

          Oh, yes I think Brandi was trying to be on her best behavior but she did slip once, big time! Luckily, for her, I’m not sure Leeza even heard it cause she seemed to realized it was over the top and quickly bailed to a commercial. lol.

    • Amber says:

      Everything included in the piece comes from Brandi’s recent podcast that I listened to rather intently the day it was released. Leeza spoke about CA entirely from the perspective of charity work and her foundation. Nothing more.

      During the course of the interview, Brandi encouraged and Leeza (somewhat) agreed to a photo season with a photographer Brandi knows. Brandi would like to style Leeza for that session.

      Towards the end of the podcast, Brandi encouraged Leeza to pitching her Sheer Mineral line and Leeza refused, which leads me to believe either the subject was negotiated as off limits or Leeza didn’t have the time..

      It could be that Liza offhandedly mentioned some sort of cooperative venture between the two of them involving charity and I missed it, but from what I listened to, and perhaps colored by what Leeza said during a post win interview when asked about her relationship with Brandi, I strongly doubt there is any business anything for Leeza involving Brandi — unless Leeza is advising her privately, but plenty of people, including LVP, have done that.

        The makeup thing was weird and I didn’t include in my recap. I wasn’t sure if she just realized they were out of time or what.

      • mrs peabody says:

        I don’t think anyone who was seriously interested in partnering with someone in a business would ever consider Brandi as a partner. Would you wanting her to tell a potential customer to STFU? I doubt Leeza is that dumb.

    I’m such a dork that I get very excited when I get a deal. Or what I think is a deal-and I have to share! A few weeks ago I found $175 in Macy’s gift cards that i forgot I had. So, I packed them up and put them in my car, so when I was out and about I could run into Macy’s. I decided I was going to use them towards a nice bag. I had free time today, so I stopped in. I found the Coach bag I wanted and then I was checking out the sale bags (you never know!) and found a second I really liked. The girl had to check the price for me-and she let me know that the VIP sale starts Wednesday, so I would get an extra 25% off the discounted bag and 25% off the full price bag as well. The only thing was I have to wait until Wednesday to pick up the full priced bag-I could take the sale one home. I figured it was worth it! It ended up that I got 2 nice coach bags-and after my gift cards-it only cost me $60 out of pocket. $30 a bag. What more could I ask for? This made my day!!!

        It’s going to kill me to restrain myself when I go back! I could use a new wallet! Lol

      Jelly! I love it when I get a deal… It doesn’t even need to be a great deal like this lol.

      • Exit4 says:

        Coach never goes on sale-except when Macy’s does the VIP sale. I think it used to be called the friends and family sale? I was glad she offered the discount pre-sale! It works out, because my husband needs pants for work-and he has a $50 gift card (which I soooo would have stolen if I thought of it! Lol) so I can get the discount on the pants when I go pick up the bag on Wednesday.

        • See, THIS is a talent. You cannot teach this! lol

          I’m a sale hound from eons ago. Hubs does not understand how much money I have saved us through the decades. He actually thinks my shopping COSTS us. Pffft! Then he finally needs something and I drag him into the stores and he realizes I’M A SHOPPING GODDESS!

          Well done, Exit. You have my respect!

          • Exit4 says:

            Thanks! I’ve actually gotten pretty good at getting deals! I don’t “coupon”-like the TV show-that’s too much of a commitment for me! But I do use them. I’ve gotten the hang of stacking. Especially at target. CVS I do well too-with the extra bucks and coupons. My husband is just like yours! I’ll come home and say “I made target my bitch today” and tell him how much I saved and he’ll always say-“but you still spent XYZ”! He’s teasing-these men don’t even know!

    • mrs peabody says:

      I love saving money like that, I never shop anymore I save money (or at least that’s what I tell my husband and he believes me!). I saved him almost $2400 on a bedroom set today.

      Exit – congrats on those awesome deals — my friends have these tiny long strapped adorable coach purses that you know- you wear when you’re heading out at night somewhere or out shopping – don’t fit a lot in them —

      I found some coach stuff to be on sale at Macy’s around christmas time.
      A wallet I wanted. But then I didn’t buy it.

      I went via the macys store online – it told me which stores near me had which ones. So I followed that and found it. The store itself didn’t know they had them, they had to “open the drawers”
      I’ve worked at lord and taylor and plenty of other places retail in the past and I cannot STAND Macy’s but yes, there are deals to be found !
      Men in my family get all their clothes from there especially — great deals for men.

      Do you have an coach outlets near you ?
      Be mindful of stuff created just for the outlets vs actual coach retail stores name brand full price.
      They now make things specific to outlets.

    So, I just watch the Beverly Hills first look, BG is saying Lisa V was talking to this cute guy that turn out to be Max’s childhood friend and thats her date, but I am reading here and other blogs that he’s an escort, whats the deal here, if he indeed is Lisa’s and Max’s acquaintance, talk about going into different pats in life. It does seem really weird tho, could it be another lie from BGlandvile ??

    I post this in last blog, didn’t notice the new one here lol

  19. I watched the First Look last night for BH and the thing that made me laugh out loud was at some point Brandi said something like “Why should I even try or I’m going to stop trying.” And I thought, “You are actually TRYING???? OMG!!! How SAD is that….that was your attempt at behaving???”

    I don’t think Lisa would have someone DMing for her with occasional quick spelling errors – which she does – so I think she keeps a close eye and I know some a&& last year called her out on her DMing but what- she’s supposed to follow all her freakin fans ?
    Then she’d be breaking Twitter.
    Just based on my interactions with her.

    Not to dredge thus up yet AGAIN-
    But watching the 1st look im slow-moing the GLASS break scene.

    Lisa stands up and Lee press on jank mcJank nails puts her hand on Lisa’s to stop lisa. Lisa does two things at same time: pushes her janky nails away with her LEFT hand. At same time- puts her right hand to pick up glass and just throws water onto Kim.
    That’s it. The two glasses in front of her used and done.

    NEXT scene is Lisa throwing and breaking a glass with her LEFT hand while eileen holds her left arm back to stop her.

    HOW DOES THE GLASS GET TO Lisa’s left hand to be broken? And what glass is it?

    I seriously need help. Are they showing messed up cuts over and over just to mess with us?
    I seriously need an excedrin after seeing this yet again.


    • chismosa-irresponsible conjecture, rubbish, assumptions, innuendo, & gossip!! says:

      Scratch —– eileen is not pulling her left hand as glass breaks. YO does.

      Eileen just sat there the whole time like its a take from her show being filmed.

      • chismosa-irresponsible conjecture, rubbish, assumptions, innuendo, & gossip!! says:

        Yo is pulling Lisa’s right arm. While Lisa breaks glass (l’chaim!) with her left hand.

        Sorry I’ve been going over this so much in my mind.

      • mrs peabody says:

        I’m watching the rerun now and when Kim first mentions talking about the husband and Lisa responds you can hear Eileen saying to Kim you are a scary vicious human being. (I totally missed that the first time). Kim leans forward and that is when Lisa goes for her chin and then doesn’t grab it at the last second and sits back down. Kim then leans forward and is verbally attacking Lisa about her husband and pointing that damn figure at her, KIM is very aggressive towards Lisa, it isn’t only Lisa that is being aggressive. At this point you can see Brandi’s arm pushing/pulling her back and kind of pulls her back into her seat and telling her to sit down and those nails look horrible. As Kim is sitting back down Yo gets up and goes behind Lisa. You see Yo go behind her and in the next scene it’s just Lisa so Yo walked behind her and past her to her left side. The next scene Lisa and Kyle are both start standing up and this is where you see Yo coming back into the scene from Lisa’s left side. This is where you see Brandi’s hand going toward Lisa and Lisa’s left hand up toward Brandi’s hand and her right hand reaching for the wine glass, you can also see Eileen’s hand start going up . Slow motion you can see her pick up the wine glass and throw it. You then see Lisa throw the wine/water at Kim and then the scene switches to the angle where you are seeing it from behind Eileen. If you watch really slow you can see her pull her hand back with the glass in in and when the scene shows with her, Yolo and Lisa V you can see her take the glass out of her right hand with her left hand and that’s when she breaks it. You can see her right hand around the glass and her pulling it back. In the time it took them to change angles she made the change from one hand to the other. The only other glass close enough was sitting in front of Lisa V over to her left hand side. She used the same glass for the whole scene. After she takes the glass in her left hand she swings it down toward the edge of the table, she never threw it towards Kim, she hit it down on the edge of the table. I had to click threw each second of the scene with my remote to see it as it happened so fast.

        • mrs peabody says:

          I meant you can see her right hand around the glass and then her left hand is pulling it back away from her right hand. It’s kind of blurring but if you go forward click by click with the remote you can see it.

        • Oh, well done. I hate when Bravo does all those frantic cuts and it’s so hard to follow what actually happens. Thanks for taking the time to do this.

  23. And so as not to give RBytes fun recap short shrift, I must say I love this and hope Andy uses it for a drinking game really soon:

    “So…Andy Cohen…Here is your new drinking game for one of your ‘Watch What happens Live’ shows…Every time you hear the word ‘BITCH’ – drink like you have just been called a stripper!”
