Real Housewives of Melbourne S2, Ep 9 – Gina’s New Shoes (No Good Deed Goes Unpunished)

Real Housewives of Melbourne S2, Ep 9 – Gina’s New Shoes (No Good Deed Goes Unpunished)

by Reality_Bytes

Sorry I am late this week, real life roared its head and left me with more to do than I had hours in the day/week. In order to get this out before the next episode airs – I will do a lot more paraphrasing than actual dialog.

Jackie & Ben

The episode opens with Jackie and Ben happy Jacks is back from the Philippines, Ben somewhat admonishing Jacks on her constant use (and misuse) of the word “couture” saying he has no idea why she says it all the time. (Couture, which is a third of what comes out of her mouth, joins another third called profanity, and the rest to me is either benign or gibberish.)

He is happy she is home, she is happy she is home, and even tells him of her poor behavior while away. He said something about him being her ozone layer – she tells him things and he puts them into perspective for her. Interestingly as Jackie speaks, one would think she wasn’t on the same show we all watched, LOL! Nothing worth reporting here…next…

 

Lydia’s House

Remembering back, Lydia couldn’t go on one of the trips (Sydney, I think) because she and her husband were moving back into their newly renovated home. Chyka comes over to see the house, and it was very nice, I was pretty impressed with some of her selections, and it all seems to look rather nice. It is nice to see her putting her skills to good use.

Chyka brought her some kind of plant, took the tour, loved the home…and I LOVED LOVED LOVED the atrium!

atrium

Lydia has 2 dishwashers in her kitchen (my kitchen would be cleaner if I had two also), and Chyka agrees 2 would be nice, and then Lydia says 4 would be nice… 2 in the kitchen and 2 in the butler’s pantry…(like she ever does dishes)

Her Den/living room/family room (lounge I guess it would be) has a great flow to the atrium as well. Very nice Lydia!

den to atrium

She also has electric drawers in her kitchen which are also the soft-close kind. They are triggered by the cabinet by whichever drawer you want opened. Should be interesting when the power goes out, eh? Can’t get a pot or a spoon!

Gina and Gamble in the Car

The ladies are talking and Gina says she loved the trip to the Philippines – it was great, but she wished that Jackie hadn’t lost her cool the way she did…and maybe Petti could have approached her in a different way…and says she is struggling a bit with her…and Gamble agrees saying she was pretty rude. Gina goes on to say that people who are always saying things like Ned Kelly and complaining about everything she does is not really conducive to a friendship.

Janet’s Tea Launch

I don’t know whether or not this is due to production requesting it or not, but it seems so repetitive to always go through the whole ‘Jake Accident Story’ every time either the tea or his name is brought up. I’m not snarking here either, it just seems like reasonably intelligent adults can remember the story from the first time, right?

  • Janet going through the Jake story
  • Gina tells Jackie she looks cute then asks if she is hiding something under her top and asks if she is pregnant (her outfit was a fail in my book)
  • Jackie says she wouldn’t be drinking if she was and asks if Gina is calling her fat…both comments were said in banter not in anger.
  • Gina tells Jacks (Lord only knows why) that she has named shoes after the girls but to keep it a secret.
  • Jackie doesn’t understand why it should be a secret (cause the sneak preview hasn’t happened yet and she wants it to be a surprise Jackei! Are you really that obtuse?)
  • Jackie makes a snarky DC.
  • Carlos shows up (remember he is the one Janet said saw the alleged pictures of Gamble…
  • Janet says she didn’t invite him and introduce him to Gamble on purpose to start something (riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight).
  • Gamble confronts him…he hedges …Janet can’t believe he told her he had seen the photos…
  • Jackie-the-good-Samaritan asks Gamble privately if there are pictures and says “if there is a photograph of you it’s going to be f***ed.” Gamble says there is not.
  • Gina and Gamble talk and she encourages her to tell him to show her the photos
  • Gina/Gamble/Carlos talk
  • Carlos said he saw them on a camera and Gina says then you need to give her the photographer’s name and he won’t…
  • Gina asks is she was in a bikini, or performing oral sex?
  • Carlos still hedging and did say something about by the pool
  • Gina wants him to fess up and says it sounds like the story was all blown out of proportion
  • Janet says he gilded the lily on this one!
  • END RESULT – MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING! However it could have really ruined her reputation…does Carlos want his own storyline on the show? JUST RUDE to do what he did.

 

Lydia & Petti Talk

Lydia asks Petti what’s up with her accent thing(ie)…Petti says it seems the attention to her is about her accent…Petti says “Who cares, I speak English?”  Lydia says she loves how she speaks and her accent…

DC/Lydia: Pettifleur has a beautiful sexy voice and accent…it’s a Mediterranean…no…I don’t know what it is (in a previous episode she called her nationalities a bit of a mongrel)…Pettifleur’s accent is not an Aussie accent…

Lydia says she thinks she needs to say to Gina I have something that is upsetting me…and it’s coming from you…and can we sort it out?

DC/Petti: Somehow Gina has caught on to the fact that I don’t like my accent being mimicked, so she continues doing it to push my buttons.

Okay so after Lydia says Petti should address it wilt Gina (ALONE), the girls are all sitting at the table as Lydia speaks to Gina and says that Petti has a problem with Gina mimicking her accent.(WHAT??? …Lydia your advice to Petti was good…why are you addressing it to Gina?)

Petti says she doesn’t like attention brought to her accent. Gina says OK fair enough, but I thought it was cute. Gina says in a DC she has mimicked her, but she hasn’t mocked her! (Good luck getting her to understand that one Gina, LOL)! Gina goes on to say if I have ever mocked her it is because of what she is saying not how she is saying it. Then it gets into the racist thing again…PETTI. THAT IS GETTING OLD! Moving on…Gina said in here DC that the going around in circles conversations with Petti answering questions with questions is enough to make your brain blow! And if Petti is implying that she is racist – she is a MORON!

 

Gina Liano Shoe Line – Sneak Preview @ The Doll House

Gina says she has been a Barrister for 15 years but her heart is always with the fashion industry…(Read her book to know more about her mother and sisters all being in the Fashion Industry since 1985 and how she used to work in the Boutiques)

This section of the program is hard for me because all the other ladies want Gina to support their efforts and really only Gamble supported this shoe segment without snarking and saying:

  • Gina should have asked them before using their names
  • Janet says her shoes are for an old lady and are “Nana” shoes, and I have to wonder what Nana (grandmother) would be walking around in rhinestone studded 5” heels? She said Chyka’s are ugly too.

janet shoe

  • Gina hopes the girl’s feel honored she has named the shoes after them, and that they like the style.
  • Lydia says it isn’t her style of shoe – the ones named after her
  • Janet says Gina is trying to make her money off the “Names” of the ladies…really? Who would buy Roach Shoes Janet?
  • Petti doesn’t want her BRAND (name) used without permission…she apparently doesn’t understand that the Brand is Gina Liano, and the name of the shoe is the model # so to speak. And remember on the Sydney trip, I think, she was ecstatic about the Petite Fleur jewelry line? A bit hypocritical isn’t it?
  • Chyka did say that she wished she had been asked about it first, but she and Gina talked about it and decided to ultimately use Chessie, I think for her daughter…Chyka didn’t attend the sneak preview, but sent her daughter in her place.
  • Petti says who knows more about shoes than she does because she is the Imelda Marcus of Melbourne…(add this to her EXPERT resume)
  • When it came time to showcase the shoes on the models, after a few of them went, Lydia and Petti crashed the catwalk, which was in such poor taste, and they certainly wouldn’t have approved of that kind of behavior at one of their events! (Gamble said it was like watching a Labrador and a Chihuahua run with a greyhound.)
  • Petti brought up the Yves Saint Laurent vs Christian Louboutin lawsuit because one pair had red soles to Gina.
  • Gina said they are only samples.
  • Gina got tired of her bitching and said she would gladly take her name off the shoes if she wanted her too!
  • Lydia said Gina has a particular style but we’ll have to see if she knows how to run a business!
  • Only Gamble was excited for Gina AND having a pair of shoes named after her!

Petti and Janet Shopping

Not much of interest here they are picking out vintage dresses for Jackie’s Vintage La Mascara Garden party. Janet bitching about Gina’s shoes and Nana shoes. Petti says her name is unique and she doesn’t want any other bitch using it. Janet does a really snarky DC about Gina doing something because she loves the girls so much…more about the red sole lawsuit…Janet says she didn’t know that (so here is Janet’s next thing to blow way out of proportion).

Now Petti comparing Gina’s issue about Petti’s book and calls it a “take me down moment”…and says Gina and the red sole is a Gina take Gina down moment…whatever that means.

 

Gamble and Tempest Talk

Not much here just about her surgery and recovery

 

Chyka in Car Ride with Janet

Bitching about their names on the shoes and the shoe styles.

DC/Janet: I didn’t care if she named a shoe after me…but I wanted a good shoe…I don’t want the ugly shoe…why do I always get the Nana shoe?…I don’t wear those shoes…that’s not my shoe…I don’t want that shoe…

Pinata

Then she says she is going to call the bowel cleansing tea Gina! (Read her book dahling, that is a really rude comment considering…)

 

Garden Party – The Face of La Mascara

Y’ALL NEED TO WATCH THIS for yourself…even the misfiring of the champagne opening…Jackie exits by helicopter…and then returning of the helicopter to toss the car keys on the ground so Ben wouldn’t have to walk home…Petti’s hat that she calls a “Jackie O” hat that Gina thinks it is a 1950 toilet paper holder …Janet tells Gina she F***ing hates her shoes and figures she and Chyka got the crap ones…Gina says she is wearing the one designed for her to the Bond Girl Hen’s Party and for Janet to watch how good she looks in them…they are cutting edge and she attributed that to Janet (in your face Janet)…sheesh…the rest I will do in pictures, save one last thing…check out the new “FACE” of La Mascara! Gina also has a funny DC about Bogans and Jackie using the word Couture…

The term bogan (/ˈbɡən/[1]) is an Australian and New Zealander slang word that can be used to describe a person with a lower working class background, or whose speech, clothing, attitude and behaviour exemplify a gratified working class mentality and depending on the context, can be pejorative or self-deprecating.[2] The bogan person will generally lack sophistication and refinement.

Over the course of the last several decades, the bogan has become a very widespread and well recognised subculture, often as an example of bad taste.[3][4]

party 2 party 3 party 4 party 5

Jackie has places to go and people to see so the helicopter comes to take her away…and she says she feels like Lydia…

Then she realizes she has the car keys, so the chopper comes back and she throws then out of the chopper on the ground…

KEYS

 

NEXT WEEK:

  • Gamble’s Hen’s party complete with the strippers Gamble said she didn’t want.
  • Jackie starts a fight with Gina (nothing new here, LOL)

TITBITS:

  • Petti’s book is self-published and here is what she had to say about it: “I’m self-publishing, because I don’t want my message lost in editing or proofreading or whatever. Publishers take away the message from your book. My book is not about selling my book,” she insists.
  • Jackie, Janet and Chyka were on the Today Show this past week – After panning to Janet, Chyka and Jackie, and then back to Kathy Lee and Hoda, one of the ladies must have spilled some of their champagne and KL & H laughed…Jackie rambled on over everyone else about her being a psychic where she predicted the show’s success in the U.S. in Prime Time…and Hoda says “It is?” (LOVE YA HODA!)
  • 2 more regular episodes and an additional 2-part Reunion to come

 

Ciao for now!

  1. Veena (NMD) says:

    Good morning,

    I googled Gina’s shoes – and they were on sale $220 instead of $440 – but then they were not on sale the next day – or today.

    http://ginaliano.com/shop/shoes

    She has shoes named after Janet, Petti Fleur (isn’t that spelled differently – perhaps to piss Petti off – Lydia – Cheeky (which is Chyka’s nickname and she preferred to be used) – Barbie and Kelley, but no Gamble.

    The shoes come like a base and then you choose your crystals (220 extra for Swarovski.

    • jezzibel says:

      I think they are rather nice, the satin peeptoe with the crystal detailing at the heel would make a beautiful bridal shoe. I like the watermelon colored ones, I think its a striking color in person. I bet Lisa V already has the Barbie ones in her closet

    • Good morning Veena…The Petite Fleur was also the way the jewelry was spelled in Sydney that Petti loved. Her shoe sight has been up for several weeks and I saw them on sale as well…but I thought it changed before their last episode, can’t remember. I wondered if the Kelly shoe (from the Ned Kelly remarks thrown around all the time at Gamble) were really the shoes for Gamble…but I suspect it is the Barbie shoe, wouldn’t you think?

    • Powell says:

      She named Petti’s Petite, which she is. I’ve got to say the styles match the ladies she named each pair after. I can see them wearing them.

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

        I wouldn’t turn down a pair. I thought they were all beautiful.

        Those ingrate bitchs are so desperate for a reason to justify their incessant complaining.

    • Lovely but they make my feet hurt just looking at them. Ever since I broke my ankle I wear flats with the only requirement that they be comfortable.

  2. ladebra says:

    Great blog Reality_Bytes! I watched the episode this morning …. after a little earthquake woke me up at 4:07!

    I like Ben, he seems to be normal. I’m not liking Jackie this season. It’s fine if she wants to disagree with Gina or anyone else, but she doesn’t have to be so rude. I loved seeing Lydia’s home. And the tea party was interesting – Carlos made up the story about Gamble while he was gossiping with Janet. Janet then couldn’t wait to spread it around and slander Gamble. I’m glad they show Carlos to be the pants on fire liar. If Janet loves to gossip – I’d like to see someone make up a lie about her and see how she likes it.

    The pin up party was interesting. I love a good costume party! All of the ladies were there to support Jackie and Ben. It looked like they had a good time!

    Hope everyone has a great Sunday!💕

  3. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Episode 9? Gosh I’ve only seen two. 😱 I don’t know why but this season seems like it’s moving faster.
    I hope you have had a fantastic weekend. The weather has been pretty darn good. I hope it stays that way. It is May for goodness sake. 😊
    So who got a piece of PDiddy’s $250k💵💵💵💵💵💵💰💰💰💰 that Mark Wahlberg had to pay out? It sure was a Star studded event. There were bumper to bumper planes of the wealthy at the LV airport. I would’ve like to see that up close.
    I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  4. ladebra says:

    A co-worker texted this to me. I was rolling on the floor laughing. Hope you enjoy as much as I did 😄
    RETIRED HUSBAND

    After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Wal-Mart.

    Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out.

    Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women – loves to browse & leaves me with endless time to fulfill.

    Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter,
    from the local Wal-Mart

    Dear Mrs. Harris:

    Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion, in our store.

    We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to, ban both of you from the store.

    Our complaints against your husband, Mr. Harris, are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras:

    1. June 15: He took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other people’s carts when they weren’t looking.

    2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals.

    3. July 7: He made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women’s restroom.

    4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice,
    ‘Code 3 in House wares. Get on it right away’.
    This caused the employee to leave her assigned station and receive a reprimand from her Supervisor that in turn resulted with a union grievance, causing management to lose time; and costing the company money. We don’t have a Code 3.

    5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&Ms on layaway.

    6. August 14: Moved a, ‘CAUTION – WET FLOOR’ sign to a carpeted area.

    7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the children shoppers he’d invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department to which twenty children obliged.

    8. August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, ‘Why can’t you people just leave me alone?’
    EMTs were called.

    9. September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.

    10. September 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.

    11. October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while, loudly humming the, ‘Mission Impossible’ theme.

    12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his, ‘Madonna Look’ using different sizes of funnels.

    13. October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled ‘PICK ME! PICK ME!’

    14. October 22: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed;

    ‘OH NO! IT’S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!’

    15. Took a box of condoms to the checkout clerk and asked where is the fitting room?

    And last, but not least:

    16. October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile; then yelled very loudly, ‘Hey! There’s no toilet paper in here.’
    One of the clerks passed out.

  5. T-Rex says:

    Mmmkay got a bit of information on that horrible bust of a wine launch by THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONSTFUBrandi, Word is she invited almost 200 people, and less than thirty folks showed. She invited all her people she calls besties on her podcrap shows, uhm none showed. She invited all the Ho-wives and former Ho-wives of all seaons, I think we noted that only one showed and that was a former howife from a fired cast. Did I miss another Ho-wife? StinkyStankySkankerrificStanger would show up to an “envelope opening” if it meant a chance for her to have her picture taken. The two folks from CA showed up, but word is they informed that more folks from CA were going to be there, uhm they weren’t. Oh and where is the whole “gay brigade” she purports to have, uhm no where. Look she should realize that she has burnt TONS OF BRIDGES with her idiotic, moronic, childish behaviour and the fact that she lives her life on TOTAL LIES.

    • Amber says:

      I continue to wonder why wine web site does not mention Housewives in the “About” section and only recently in the “News” area.

      • T-Rex says:

        The wife of the son, of the owners of the winery that made and paid for this wine to be made, is a huge Ho-wife fan and Bravo fan, like I said google is a beautiful thing and I found twats going back a couple of years wherein she was twatting a lot of bravo reality folks. I think they also did a sponsored wine for Chef Roble who was on Bravo for about 5 seconds some years ago.

    • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

      I knew it had to be like 20 people!!!!!

      HAHA! Thanks for the scoop. 🍦

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      Yep. Brandi’s toast. I can’t believe she couldn’t get more people to come to her event Should’ve had it at a bar where there’s already a ton of people in there or a strip club. 😆
      I saw that Patti got a gift card from the restaurant too.

      • Powell says:

        We should not have been surprised since she couldn’t even get $3000 for the make a wish.

      • T-Rex says:

        I forgot if it was Exit or Jnntj, that pointed out that they were having the party at Flemings due to restaurant agreeing to carry the wine at their restaurant. Other places have pointed out that for a $15/bottle of wine that the fee to ship starts at $25.00 making the wine a $40 purchase in total, no one is going to pay that even her most ardent fans. The party tried to get some publicity by adding some fake fight BS on the wires, but no one cares.

        • Foxymel(Mel) says:

          Ha! Brandi’s telling her fans that they should buy 2 bottles for less shipping. Um, ok! Lol

    • Powell says:

      LOL T-Rex I’m pretty sure you said Patty would “show up to an envelope opening” many moons ago. I just burst out laughing. 😆😆 Only you T-Rex.
      You mean to tell me her live-in roommate wasn’t there? All her girls that have been tweeting “she’s the best” weren’t there? Only one ex HW and no HWs? 😆😆 I’d love to hear her explanation for 30 out of 200 supporting her.

  6. Veena (NMD) says:

    Impulse trip – just booked a short trip to Hawaii to see Kilauea

  7. chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

    I was laughing so hard at the SNL sketch of the gay southern guy with his “wife” talk show hosts and they had like a Teresa from NJ on …..

    She was like “I’m ovahhhh heeeeyah and youse all lets me know when to make da drinks. I got all da ingrediencesses heeeeyah.”
    And there was a bottle of what looked like whiskey or bourbon and it said “SKINNY BROAD” on it 😜😜😜😜

    And they weren’t ready for her so she kept saying “oh ok I’ll stay here in my vinicinity” — I never got it and had to CC it all. She really said ingrediencesses and vicinicity or something. So funny.

    Then she’s on the phone with her goumba hubby and he’s got “only one call he can make” and she’s like “I’m on dat show with the gay guy an his mothhhaaaa”.
    And he’s like “send me dirty pick-chaaaas!!!”

    So so funny. 😩😹😂😂😂

    • Powell says:

      Too funny. I should have watched more. I only watched the Mayweather Pac fight. I loved it when the announcer and ref left to go watch pay per view in Wiz Khalifa’s dressing room. So so funny.

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      Girl, you know they watched a few episodes of NJ and ran with Tre’s character. This is why a bravo needs to have her back. She’s hilarious even though she doesn’t try to be.

      • T-Rex says:

        Oh I think there is NO DOUBT that Bravo is going to have ConvicFelonTeresa back on Bravo, I would bet they offer her the spot on RHNJ show but a spinoff offer as well. She NEEDS the money and Bravo is going to whore her out on TV as long as the viewers are watching. I am not knocking her for this, by no means, she is a fame whore, as they ALL are, and she is the NewJersey franchise at this point.

        • Foxymel(Mel) says:

          I think it’ll be a hit because she won’t be living the life of luxury anymore and we all know how Tre hates living in other people’s houses. That whole mess will be good for her to show and at the same time, help pay her bills.

  8. Powell says:

    Watched Arranged. Was able to watch the full epi of Maria & Christian leaving their honeymoon and the other couples getting married and the last 10 or so minutes of Maria & Christian’s wedding. I went on Twitter and no one is liking Christian. Calling him abusive, spoiled, a man child and I totally agree. Maria’s sis was married a few weeks before she was but wasn’t arranged, which is how she wanted it, but it put shame on her family. That’s just weird to me. I so loved the Indian couple’s wedding. I love how their culture throws a wedding. The SC couple OMG that MIL stole the first dance. I really like this show.
    Now I’m watching Married at First Sight. The couples are looking for the first apt. So far the couple where the bride didn’t like her groom on 1st sight seems like they are getting close quicker than the other couples. But we shall see. I really like this show too.

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      I’m liking this show too and thank goodness for the other two couples. I thought the Indian couple was very nice and I couldn’t believe she was able to dance after fracturing her leg! That MIL from hell, not good. But at least that couple might be moving away so it won’t be so bad for her.
      I agree with everyone’s reaction to Christian. He’s a very angry kid around his wife. Her sister looks very happy to have been married on her own terms and screw her family for choosing to be happy than to please them.

    • What channel is it on? Sounds interesting. I watched an episode of Botched for the first time yesterday and I can’t stand Terry D – what a pompous ass, he is insufferable and so wants to be a tv star.

      • Foxymel(Mel) says:

        It’s on the FYI channel. That channel also shows Married at First sight. I’ve missed the new couples so I have to remember to DVR it.

      • Powell says:

        FYI, channel 266 DirecTV in my area.
        I watched Botched Thursday during the day. They fixed a stomach & navel, a nose and I can’t remember what else right now. Oh yeah a transgender woman is in her quest to look like a blow up sex doll and wanted the docs to give her wide open lips. They wouldn’t help her. She was a hoot.

  9. Foxymel(Mel) says:

    Thank you Reality_Bytes for another wonderful recap! I hope everything is going well with you now that this week has passed.
    I don’t mind the petty fighting in this franchise because they always seem to be ok with each other after their fights. So Petti doesn’t want to sell a book it just sell it?? Huh? I can do with out her. Have another lady come on next season to take her place.
    I’m not sure what you think about this theory I have. Andrea seemed fine with Gina in the beginning of the first season. I have a feeling that if Jackie had not rubbed Gina in the wrong way like she initially did, then Jackie would’ve been on the outs with the ladies. I think the other ladies accepted her because she was a wrench thrown Gina’s way. Also, Andrea and Lydia were very snobby so I don’t think for a moment that Jackie would’ve been liked.

    • You make some really good points…let me check some things about last season and may I get back to you then? I know Janet/Andrea were like white-on-rice, so I was thinking Janet took over Andrea’s fight with Gina, but I need to think more about Jackie last season. Honestly all I remember about her was she shook hands with every new person (in the group of women and otherwise) ans gave it the old “Hi I’m Jackie and you probably don’t know but I am psychic” which irritated me to no end, LOL. The season actually ended up with no one liking Gina(reunion)…and this season it started all over again, Hmmm…you have given me food for thought!

  10. To my Orphan Black peeps – I thought it was better last night and Cosima rocked the night! Also, really enjoying Allison and Donnie.

  11. Powell says:

    I’m watching Call the Midwife. I have the 1st 4 epis on my dvr. This first epi is sad/happy at the same time. A mom had a still born baby but she’s pregnant w/twins and didn’t know it.

    • Laineylainey says:

      That series is based on a book, right? The stories are so good. I love Vanessa redgraves voice in it. There is a beautiful quote that I had to keep rewinding to write it down. Lemme see if I can find it…

      Here it is. It’s from season 2. I’m assuming they are the words of J.Worth

      “There is a greater gift than the trust of others, and that is trust in oneself. Some might call it confidence, others name it faith, but if it makes us brave, the label doesn’t matter for it’s the thing that frees us to embrace life itself”

  12. Laineylainey says:

    Here’s a fun tweet:

  13. TexasTart says:

    RHOA why does Andy keep dragging up stuff from LAST season? There was too much of part one that was old stuff. Talking about Cynthia 2.0, LOL, at least that applies to this season.

    Why would y’all call that horrible wig Cynthia has on?

  14. Powell says:

    WTF is wrong w/Cynthia?

  15. TexasTart says:

    Andy is getting off on this Cynthia – Phaedra shade fest.

    Kandi and Phaedra had a real friendship up until this last season….too bad they weren’t on the same page. Was Kandi selfish or was she simply distracted by all the change and activity in her life?

    • Powell says:

      I think Kandi was distracted w/a lot. But I also think that one point when it seemed like Kandi wasn’t being supportive of Phadera when the take the kids to visit Apollo in jail came up. Although Kandi could have her own feelings about it, she should have been supportive of her friend.

  17. TexasTart says:

    SO TRUE! Kandi said every year it’s something different with Nene. You never know what to expect!

  18. TexasTart says:

    Lainey, I still hate this set. It’s so busy and red, it hurts my head.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I’m just now watching my dvr recording of it, I am going to look at it, …let’s see…

      It is bizarre. All of those statues. But I like the redness. It looks good with their white dresses and brown skin.

  19. Powell says:

    It would have been really nice to see ALL these ladies w/their natural hair. Some of these wigs and weaves shouldn’t have even been manufactured.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      Have we EVER seen natural hair on Atlanta?

      Maybe Claudia? Maybe Phaedra?

      • TexasTart says:

        Those two, plus Kenya and Kandi. BUT at one point or another each of them has added on to their hair. Wait, maybe not Phaedra. Her hair is very consistent in it’s body and length.

    • TexasTart says:

      YES!

  20. Powell says:

    That’s just why I don’t like Kenya.

  21. TexasTart says:

    LOL. Nene kept saying this backwards on WWHL:
    …you can’t make charity out of a mockery…

    • TexasTart says:

      but her make-up is good and matches the rest of her skin. No mo 5’clock shadow, lol

  22. OneMoreInBoston says:

    THE CATS ARE KILLING ME!!!

    This is EVERYTHING.

    • TexasTart says:

      It was!!!! Glad someone else saw that – describing it would NOT have done justice to how hilarious it was. XD

  23. TexasTart says:

    RealtyBytes – Thanks for the Melbourne ladies! I enjoyed the recap. Love the subtitle -no good deed goes unpunished- giggles.
