Shahs of Sunset and Real Housewives of New York Cast Blogs

The Shahs of Sunset – Big Trouble in Phukat by SunnyGirl

Does anyone else have the feeling that The Shahs are on their last go-round?  This has been the worst season.  I’m not sure what their viewing numbers are but everyone is trying way too hard.

So, GG and Mike meet to discuss “what happened in Turkey.”  They go back and forth and ultimately Mike claims he doesn’t remember – he had taken pills (what KIND of pills, inquiring minds want to know?) and had too much to drink.  GG claims he does remember.  Finally, Mike says he is sorry for whatever GG thinks might have happened.  That’s kind of a strange apology.  Mike made a good point when he said GG should have come to him and talked directly with him about it.  I agree – but otherwise, he basically admits that something must have happened.  (And still – Jessica married him.  And where, where, where has Jessica been lately?)

1 - shoes

The next few scenes show everyone packing for Thailand.  Of course, this sets the scene for everyone to discuss not only Reza calling off the wedding but foreshadowing Asifa and Bobby arguing.

Asifa and Bobby (I accidently typed Baby – hmm.) are packing.  Asifa says since the wedding of Reza and Adam was already paid for, why don’t Bobby and Asifa get married?  Bobby says no way, Jose.  The fighting starts again, and to be honest, my ears shut down.  I know they are arguing but I can’t even understand what it is about.

Everyone is showing up at the airport, including Shervin.   (Does anyone like him?  At the beginning of the season, I thought he would be a good addition but he is basically a zero.)  Of course, Bobby and Asifa are already fighting before the plane even takes off.    MJ says it’s a 19 hour flight with a 13 hour layover and then another 7 hour flight.  They are all worn out by the time they get off the plane.  (GG looks like a wet noodle – I wonder if long flights stir up her RA.)  Reza puts Bobby and Asifa on a separate bus because no one (including YOUR audience, dumb asses) want to hear Bobby and Asifa fighting any longer.  It’s old, Bravo!

The hotel is absolutely gorgeous – very luxurious and tasteful.  They all decide to meet for a buffet dinner.  This season, the most interesting thing on The Shahs of Sunset has been the magnificent food they eat – almost worth watching to see the meals they eat.  The Shahs do love to eat.  GG gives a toast.  Soon, for whatever reason (and I am not sure what the reason is because they have nonsensical conversations) Bobby announces that he likes his triceps sucked on.  Asifa is irritated about that…..but whenever Bobby opens his mouth, Asifa is irritated.  (Again, Bravo – it’s getting old!)

Now it’s breakfast and again, it is a magnificent meal.  The camera cuts to what Asifa is wearing – a pair of Daisy Dukes with half of her butt cheeks hanging out.  I’m sure that will be welcomed in Thailand.  They discuss catching up on their rest, laying by the pool and eating today – basically resting up from their arduous flight.  GG asks Reza how he is feeling now that he is here in Thailand.  Reza is obviously hurting.  Asifa asks how Adam was when Reza left.  Again, Reza kind of jumps around answering the question, but it is apparent that he is in pretty bad shape.

Soon, they begin talking about the color of Asifa’s nipples.  I don’t want to talk about Asifa’s nipples.  Suffice it to say, Reza says because she is ethnic they are maroon; however, Asifa insists they are peach.  Enough said.

Asifa, Asa and GG go for a massage.  Asa is trying her hardest to work with Bobby and Asifa to improve their relationship.  Asa, girl  — it’s a lost cause.  Give it up.

Bobby and Reza are also getting a massage.  I’m not going to tell you about the black mesh underwear that they put on, because why would I want you to have that imprinted on your brain like it is on mine?

We switch back and forth between the guys and the girls.  Reza is stirring up crap with Bobby by asking him why they are together.  He tells Bobby that Asifa is mean to him and that he should leave.

Asa asks Asifa if the relationship is stable.  Asifa says yes.  Asifa is obviously delusional.  Asa tells her they seem to enjoy fighting.  Asifa says they are used to it.  Asifa says she can’t get over the fact that Bobby hooked up with her friend while they were apart (who actually turned out to be Asifa’s personal trainer.)  Asa tells her she must forgive Bobby or move on.  Asifa says she is holding onto anger (really?).  Asa asks her how is she going to change.

Now at the pool, they are talking about GG’s guy.  GG says she really, really likes him.  GG says he is passionate and it makes her feel things like people in the movies.  (I wonder if they are still together.)

Bobby tells Reza that the happiest time in his life was when he was single.  Ya think?  Reza tells him to stop being a bitch.

2 - reza

Soon, everyone is together on a patio area.  Asifa asks Bobby where he was.  He replies that he was talking to the guys.  Asifa asks if they were talking about her.  Bobby starts saying he needs to talk to her about their relationship.  Asifa, to give her credit, says not here in front of everyone.  They start arguing and getting nasty with each other.  GG tells them to calm down and communicate, not insult each other.  (Reza , in his TH, says when Lochnesa is the voice of reason, you’re in trouble.  No truer words were spoken this episode.)  Again, my ears shut down and I hear blah, blah, blah.  Asifa says let’s break up then and Bobby says ok, let’s.  Bobby runs off and says he is leaving.

GG talks to Bobby to try to get him to calm down, but he goes ahead and starts packing.

I do feel sorry for Reza in all of this.  This was supposed to be a relaxing, mentally healing vacation for him.  He should not have to deal with Bobby and Asifa.  (I don’t want to type Bobby and Asifa ever again.)

Now we see GG trying to calm Asifa down.  Asifa claims that Bobby loves drama.  That’s like the pot calling the kettle black.  Shervin tells Asifa that there is a lack of respect between the two of them.

Asifa and Bobby meet.  Asifa is mad that Bobby changed rooms.  Bobby tells her she is in a state of denial.  Bobby tells her he doesn’t see a future with her.

Everyone (except for Bobby and Asifa) come down to dinner and it’s apparent they are all drained emotionally.  For Reza, it’s not only the B & A fighting but also worrying about Adam.  They are all very subdued.  Here comes Asifa (who should know better) down to dinner.  (At least, Bobby had the sense to stay away.)   They ask her how she is and she responds that she doesn’t want to talk about it.  Reza says now you don’t want to talk?  MJ calls out Asifa on the fighting and says it is taking over their vacation and causing them all to be sad and depressed.  Asa says she is so sad about Adam.  Asa gets up and goes to her room.  GG tells Asifa that it hasn’t been pleasant to be around her and Bobby.  Reza leaves also.  MJ is trying to tell Asifa that she is ruining their vacation and Asifa gets up and leaves.

Last scene shows Reza and Asa talking about Adam and the vacation.  Reza says he is struggling with guilt; that he knows Adam is home crying his eyes out.  Reza tells Asa if things don’t improve, he is going to go home.

Next week – season finale.

Episode 7

Bethenny Frankel

“I Think That People Do Their Best”

Pretty may be smarter than I think but not quite smart enough to realize that I’m going through a divorce, and my precious moments are divided. My balance as a mother and business person is knowing that I spend every moment possible with my daughter.

DAMN RIGHT!  Kristen showed her ASS on Tuesday night by making this very ignorant comment about B.  I wonder if she has given the same advice to her BFF Brandi Glanville?  I am not a single mom, but I can certainly totally respect that when a mom (or dad) has their time with their child, they are not going to be getting sitters and stepping out on the town; especially NOT during a custody battle like we see Bethenny going through.  Shame on Kristen.  She should really apologize for her ignorant comment.  Bethenny tells us she is not “nannied” up and doesn’t go out when she has Bryn.  Luann is not someone I would be taking parenting advice from anyway.

It has been a long time coming, and as I wrote in A Place of Yes, I don’t wear my story. I, genuinely, am not angry. I think I have longed for a person to discuss the craziness of my past with. I’m an only child and essentially an orphan, so there is no one I can turn or talk to that can acknowledge what I remember to be true. I do think that people do their best; all I can do is pay it forward by being the best mother to my daughter that I can possibly be.

Bethenny is definitely like an onion and we have slowly peeled back all these layers over the years.  Her childhood certainly sucked.  Maybe that is what made her such a driven and hyperfocused adult.  I actually understand there are women out there that shouldn’t have had children.  I know a few of these women.  Sad.  Very sad.

Like Dorinda says, I’m an onion with many layers. We all are. Thanks for all the love. You are loving it, and so are we. If you love what you do, you’ll be good at it. That’s why The Real Housewives of New York City are back and better than ever.

Shit.  Dorinda just totally copied off me.

Kristen Taekman

“Not Everyone Is Out To Get Bethenny”

Kristen starts by saying Ramona’s friends are amazing.  Not sure I would describe them the same way.  Maybe, plastic?  Kristen says they are all loving, giving, beautiful and supportive women.  I guess we will take her word for it, cause I am not one of Ramona’s 30 BFFs.

Sonja and the Swami Priestess!? UGH! That Yogi friend of hers gets on my nerves!

I thought this episode was one of the best so far this season because we had limited contact with Lady Morgan.  Always a win in my book.  Kristen goes on to discuss Bethenny’s therapy session and claims she wants to hug her.

She said that she needs help to navigate and she has a hard time trusting…I was thinking this was only applicable to men, but I guess it’s friends, too. Huh…good to know. It’s sad to me that she isn’t able to trust people. Not everyone is out to get her.

But the shitty comment you made would lead me to believe you were kinda sorta maybe out to “get her” or not supportive of her situation.  Kristen loved the boxing match.  Not sure I can watch boxing other than Sylvester Stallone.  I have seen all the Rocky movies multiple times AND named my dog Rocky.  But real boxing is not like Rocky movies.  I didn’t realize that Josh’s company sponsored Carole’s boxer.  She says it was hard watching the match at first but after a few beers, she was totally into it….until this happened…

Ewwwww! I am such a germ freak. To make things worse, that mouth guard flew out of his mouth and his spit went everywhere on my leg, in my hand and in my beer!!!  Yuck!  Sooo gross!!!  Thank goodness for my hand sanitizer!

I would have thrown up!  I would have bleached myself.

It’s nice to see that Lu and Bethany have a great friendship. After all these years they can pick up right where they left off!  Victoria’s art is so captivating! Sexy! Congrats to her, what a huge deal to be part of such a prominent show!  

I do like Lu and Bethenny together.  They seem to enjoy each other’s company.  Kristen does go on to “overcompliment” Lu’s parenting of her children which is kinda laughable.  I understand that most NYC upper east side kids do go to boarding schools, but that just isn’t common.  Most of us moms are very hands on and participating in the day to day minutia of our children’s lives.  In fact just yesterday, I was at the twins’ sophomore awards at the high school at 8am and then back up there at 1:30pm to discuss my daughter’s classroom options for next year.  I also coach the special needs cheering squad at our HS, too.  I am not asking for a pat on the back because I know this is how most moms are out there.  I am just not gonna say Lu should be getting a “World’s Greatest Mom” mug.

Carole and Adam seem so sweet together and really enjoying getting to know each other. It’s cute to see them chatting on the phone. It’s always so fun when it’s new, I think Carole was actually blushing! Carole, get back to work! Write that BOOK!  

I was totally thinking that Carole should just write long emails and turn them into a book.  Isn’t that how Aviva wrote her book without a ghostwriter?  I also love that her kitchen is her office now.  In NYC you need to use EVERY bit of square footage you can if you aren’t using a space for it’s original purpose, you should totally re-purpose it!

Sonja Morgan

“Is It Really So Bad To Be Me, Carole?”

Praise God!  1537 words this week.  What a relief.  Now, since she was in only 10% of the episode, I wonder how she has so much to say, but I digress.  Sonja tells us that Ramona celebrated her “birthday week”.  Um, that is something that maybe a 5 year old does.  I thought I would look up psychopharmacologist…

Psychopharmacology is the study of the use of medications in treating mental disorders.  The complexity of this field requires continuous study in order to keep current with new advances.  Psychopharmacologists need to understand all the clinically relevant principles of pharmacokinets (what the body does to mediation) and pharacodynamics (what the medications do to the body).

Since the use of these medications is to treat mental disorders, an extensive understanding of basic neuroscience, basic psychopharmacology, clinical medicine, the differential diagnosis of mental disorders, and treatment options is required.  Psychopharmacologists also must be skilled in building and utilizing a therapeutic alliance with the patient.

OK, go back and re-read those 2 paragraphs.  I think we now have our answer as to “What is wrong with Lady Morgan?”

I’m not surprised, too, that Bethenny was not receptive to me telling her that I am seeing my friend Robin Cofar, who is a Swami Priest and Yogi. In Atlantic City, Bethenny told me that she thought that I needed to see someone and start talking about the things that are going on in my life. Robin and I are doing introspective work, so I thought that Bethenny would want to know that I was taking her advise and trying to slow things down a little bit as she suggested. Instead of being supportive, Bethenny just attacked me!

I don’t think Bethenny thought you should talk to a Swami (a Hindu priest or religious leader) Priest.  I think Bethenny was thinking you need to see a REAL doctor (I also don’t think that B was thinking a Psychopharmacologist, but hey, whatever blows your skirt up.

I know that I am very grateful for my marriage and for all of the moments I’ve had in my life. Bethenny has a very strict view of success and failure, and that’s why she views my toaster oven venture as a failure. I view it as a growing experience, because I learned so much from producing the toaster oven, and I was able to take the knowledge with me and transpose it into my Sonja Morgan New York fashion line.

I’ll say it again, I really just want that damn toast oven.  Damn you Lady Morgan!

Speaking of artists, Victoria’s paintings were amazing! She is a lovely girl, and I am so glad that she is so successful! I have been supporting young artists for decades, so maybe I need to include Victoria in one of my young artists’ exhibitions! Looks like I’ve found my next Sonja in the City event! 

Shit.  Why hasn’t Lu hired Sonja to do PR for Vitoria?  That’s what she does, right?  Victoria’s nekkid self-portraits would be flying off the shelves surely.

I don’t know why Carole was so upset when Luann said that her boyfriend is “Sonja young.” Is it really so bad to be me Carole?! I also can’t believe Ramona said that my boyfriends are just toys. The men who I date may be young, but they are established independent men who don’t need me to support them. I’m just happy that Carole has a man right now. I’m not trying to poke holes in her relationship like all of the other women are trying to do to mine. 

I actually think the insult was in the way Lu said the comment and she did not mean it as a compliment to Carole so Sonja should really be irritated with the hypocrite Luann.  Sonja has admitted she is not dating to find a serious relationship so that means these young boys are play things.  Ramona hit the mark.

But I don’t know why Ramona tried to belittle Dorinda’s relationship with John. Why can’t these women just be happy for each other?! They all need to take a step back, stop meddling in other people’s lives, and just worry about their own problems while being supportive of their friends. Dorinda is happy. John has been there for her in dark moments. 

Ramona lives in a glass house with many broken windows yet she continues to throw stones.  She really needs to learn when to close her mouth.

Can’t wait for you all to see my cover next week! I wear my own designs, the team is strong! If I am delusional, why am I wearing the very dress and jewelry I have been designing for years at a Sonja in the City event? At Vanessa Noels Coutuier?

But did she only have one dress made?  Cause that make it challenging to sell your brand if you only have a dress made for yourself to wear, right?

Dorinda Medley

“I Was Surprised To See How Open Bethenny Was”

Dorinda tell us they are back from “Atlantic Titty” which I kinda love!  Dorinda is starting to connect with these ladies and feels part of the group.  She is officially “one of the girls”.  Lucky her.  NOT!  Dorinda is enjoying Ramona’s neverending birthday week.  We learn that R’s b-day is November 18, but the parties began after Halloween and continued throughout the month of November.  Dorinda calls it Ramona Heritage Month.  I hope they had lots of pumpkin pie.

Our next stop on the birthday train was at Fishtail with ALL of her friends. And I mean ALL of them. These girls run the Upper East Side with an iron fist. They basically buy out every season at Bergdorf’s before it makes it to the floor. They’re a fun crowd—colorful characters—and Bethenny was right: It’s like the Cantina’s greatest hits from Star Wars. Of course, they’re all jockeying to be Princess Leia, though c’mon, Ramona’s the birthday girl. We know she’s the princess in our midst. After all, it is November…

There was definitely a lot of plastic in that room.  Dorinda shares with us that she has on occasion run in the circle of the ladies who lunch.  She says seeing Heather, Carole and Bethenny at this event was like seeing an animal outside it’s habitat (think Penguin in a rainforest).  Dorinda is bummed she was invited to the boxing match.  I guess she enjoys a good brawl.  As for the Carole/Luann/Adam/Niece issue…Dorinda draws the line at critiquing another’s decisions.  That is super boring and I totally think Dorinda should re-think that policy.

Speaking of private lives…I was so surprised to see how open Bethenny was about her past and her family. In may ways, she and I grew up around the same people. My grandfather loved race horses, being around the track and all those characters—some of which were colorful, to say the least. Evel Knievel was one of them, so that might give you a sense…

Dorinda relates to some aspect of Bethenny’s childhood, although not all.  Dorinda goes on to educate us on why we look for love and sometimes are unsuccessful.  I’m bored.  Dorinda does say a mother’s love is unconditional (although that greatly depends on the mother…).

Knowing you have a “home” in someone’s heart because they are part of you and you are part of them is sometimes all you need to go take on the world. Without that mother’s love and affection, it’s got to be difficult to not feel lost. That said, not having that in your life really makes you appreciate it so much more, right? You come to value how priceless and profound an unconditional, immovable love can be. This is why Bethenny is such an amazing mother. So devoted, so compassionate, so unconditionally in love with her daughter…it’s inspiring to see and moving to a fellow mom.

Unfortunately (or fortunately) we will not see how Bethenny is as a mom.  Dorinda officially feels like “one of the girls” and a part of the drama.

Heather Thomson

“It’s Exciting To See Your Friends Find Happiness”

Heather shares that she has nicknames and terms of endearment for everyone.  Holla and Mama are just part of her lingo.  I call my son Dude and Dog a lot.  My husband gets mad when he calls me Dude.  I let him do it when dad isn’t around.  It’s our “thing”.

I’m happy for Carole. She’s excited about someone, and it’s because of chemistry! You can’t hide a chemistry that magnetic. It’s exciting to see your friends find happiness. I believe Luann, at least the one I thought I knew, meant it when she said she was happy for Carole, too. Unfortunately, she’s changed her tune on that.

I think Carole is actually really happy with this Adam guy and considering Carole’s past true love, she deserves happiness.  If Lu was a truly compassionate and loving friend, she would be sad her niece lost out on a great guy, but happy that her friend found a guy that makes her happy.  Heather shares that she has been happily married for 12 years (which is like 24 or 36 in NYC years?)

BTW, I was perusing the Boston Proper website looking for some new summer clothes and saw that Heather’s Yummie Tummy products are sold on their site!  WOW!  They sell Spanx, too, but I was shocked to see Yummie products holding their own next to Spanx.  I did not see Jill Zarin’s fat girl slim line on their site though.

Ramona Singer

“I Am Truly Blessed”

Ramona said the trip to Atlantic City was great.  She musta been way drunker than I thought.  She says her lunch with her 30 girlfriends (I don’t think I could write a list of 30 girlfriends?  Maybe casual friends, but not 30 REAL friends).

I shared with Dorinda that I went from keeping the company of men to dating men. Leave it to Dorinda to ask if anyone gave me butterflies!

Well, I am glad she is dating these men so that they can buy her a meal.  Isn’t that whole purpose of dating?  To get someone to pay for your food?  OK, its been 21 years since I dated.

Listening to Bethenny talk about her childhood brought up so many memories of mine. We both had fathers who were abusive to our mothers. This does affect your relationships with men and makes you very strong and independent in your adult life. You will learn more about this from me in my book Life on the Ramonacoaster.

Who started calling Ramona Ramonacoaster?  I hope whoever it was gets a large gift for giving Ramona a great name for her book.  If Heather had her way, Ramona would be buying someone a car!

Luann de Lesseps

“I Am Not A Hypocrite.  I’m Honest”

Lu eats her words and tells us Ramona was right when she toasted her 30 best girlfriends.  Am I am the only one that is salty that Ramona HAS 30 girlfriends and I have maybe 10?

Boxing is called a blood sport for a reason and if you are going to sit ringside, getting splashed with bodily fluids is part of the experience. What amused me was how Kristen went from squeamish to scream-ish during the match. I think Lewis “Cruise Control” Cruise has a new fan! What was up with Carole admitting she took testosterone? As for Bethenny skipping the match, sometimes you have to choose family over fun but I do think that once the baby is down for the night, it’s okay to leave her with a sitter occasionally. The last boxing match I attended was Holyfield versus Dokes in Vegas and this was just as fun.

Never been to a boxing match.  I would go if Rocky was still fighting or if Mark Wahlburg (The Fighter) was in a match, but that is about it.  I am more about fictional boxing and bored when I watch a real match on TV.  Wonder why Carole took testosterone and for what reason?  I wouldn’t take parenting advice from Lu so Bethenny can just click “ignore”.

In the matter of Carole versus Luann, when it comes to her dating my niece’s ex-boyfriend Adam, I say if she’s happy, I’m happy. I don’t have long-term relationships with twenty-somethings; so I’m not a hypocrite, just being honest. Carole is excited about Adam and I really do wish them the best. I’m over it and so is my niece. 

I doubt very much she is over it given her reason twitter history and the nasty things she has been saying.  Not buying what you are selling Lu.

Screenshot 2015-05-25 20.09.52 (Small)

My trip to Miami with Victoria was a blast and I was so proud that one of her pieces was chosen for display at Art Basel. Her Untitled Nude was hung with other works exploring the role of feminism in the art world. She came through her teen years and our divorce a stronger person and has become an amazing, talented young woman. I’m so lucky.  There is a diverse range of artwork, some edgier than others, at Art Basel and it’s known for its avant-garde performance art and the clown was definitely interesting! 

Screenshot 2015-05-25 20.10.25 (Small)

I am not an “artsy” person.  I get that a “nude” is art and I thought Victoria’s self portrait was very well done although, not my taste.  I would feel totally creepy buying a nude pic of someone else and hanging it in my house…BTW, I have no nude pics of myself hanging in my home either (I am not Kim!)

So I leave you with this, holding onto resentment is like drinking a glass of poison…it will kill you eventually! So seize the day, grab a cocktail with your girlfriends, laugh it out and live your life the fullest.

This statement is oh so true.  Oh Lu, you really are the Yoda of the group.

  1. Veena (NMD) says:

    Good morning. I hope everyone had a great weekend. Special thanks to Namaste who managed to blog after surgery.

    My youngest graduated from College on a gorgeous day with loads of family attending. In a few days she’ll be home for the summer – and my oldest is home as well for around a year – so we’ve gone from an empty nest to a full house in a matter of seconds. But it is fleeting – so this time I’ll treasure it.

  2. jezzibel says:

    I strongly suspect that Mike and GG did hook up, when they were both incredibly drunk/high and inhibitions were incredibly low, but I suspect that GG isn’t upset about the sex, she’s pissed about what didn’t happen afterwards, i.e. Mike ditching Jessica permanently and he and GG being together as a couple. I think she probably hates that Mike barely remembers sleeping together and she was nothing more than a boozy one night stand.
    Her logic at the time was probably, if he will cheat on Jessica with me, than their relationship is probably going to end soon.
    Since Mike and Jessica are now married, I bet she keeps him on a short leash.
    Best of luck to the newlyweds, and I hope the GG finds something better to focus her energy and passion on.

    • Powell says:

      You think so Jezzibel? Hm. I don’t think they had sex. I think Mike did what GG said. I think he was extremely wasted as he always gets when they party. He remembers nothing. Not even that he took some kind of pill. Reza told him about the pill. One thing out of this I hope Mike stops drinking and drugging because he goes to far into it and seems to blackout.
      I thought Mike was so smug in his TH. “So what if I tried to have sex with her. So what!”, or something to that affect. Not only does it minimize GG’s feelings how does he think it made Jessica feel to hear that.

      • SunnyGirl says:

        Powell — that’s exactly how I feel about Mike. And I feel like GG has been extremely mature through most of this. And I never thought I would say GG and mature in the same sentence.

        • Powell says:

          Right SunnyGirl. And I LOL at Reza saying “If GG is the voice of reason you better run.”, referring to Asifa and Bobby arguing.

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

          I turned the page and ONLY continued following GG on Twitter and showing her support after the rest of those fools showed how lame they all were. GG has kept it real from the GET

          and just because someone is kind of CRAY CRAY doesn’t mean they’re not correct at times !
          Go GG 👊🏽👊🏽👊🏽👊🏽👊🏽👌🏽

          • mm in oc says:

            I don’t buy any of this story. She made a mountain out of a molehill. She waiting a year to bring it up so she would have a story line. He made a drunken pass at her. Mike didn’t deserve all this bs. And his friends suck for keeping this storyline going behind his back for weeks. With friends like that who needs enemies.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Haha! GG and mature in the same sentence. Yeah, hard to believe, but she is growing. Good Lord the woman has got to be in her early 30’s. It’s about time.

  3. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Hope you had a great holiday. Again congrats to HuskerSon and NMDGirl on their graduations!! I hope they have great summers.
    SunnyGirl what is wrong w/Asfra or whatever her name is? Why is Bobby trying to get married to her again?! She’s holding on to Bobby dated/slept w/her GF AFTER they were divorced? That may not have been such a great choice but why isn’t she mad w/her GF? Her GF violated the “Girl Code”.
    I felt bad for everyone. Asfra and Bobby ruined their trip. It was already sad since it should have been Reza and Adam’s wedding.

  4. Patti says:

    Weighing in on the testosterone thing… As you approach a certain age, your hormones can often completely bottom out, especially testosterone. It affects mood, energy, focus, libido and a host of other aspects of daily life. I get hormone replacement pellets and it has made a big difference for me. Obvi, not for everyone, but for those of us riding the hormone rollercoaster, it can be a game changer!

  5. Congrats to NoMoreDramaGirl and HuskerSon on graduating! How exciting!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Yes!!! I agree!!! Proud parents, proud Lynfam, too!!!

      • Powell says:

        Yes!! I feel a sense of pride for all of your kids. I was just going to ask how LaineyGirl is doing.

          She is doing well, Powellypooh! LaineySon and I will be driving to Houston on Jun 2 when she returns to Tx for a visit. She booked a modeling gig in LA while she’s in the states and will be in LA jun 9-Jun12. Short trip but long enough to do her gig, visit w good friends, a little bit of shopping. She returns here jun 12 and then on jun 13 we all drive to Houston for my niece’s wedding!!! My brothers daughter. LGirl’s return to Istanbul is “open” because her boyfriends’ team is on tournament schedule. When they get knocked out of the tournament, he hopes to be able to join her here. He graduated from the univ. Of Texas, so he loves coming here to visit, too! His favorite place to eat is Rudy’s Barbecue. Texas Tart knows Rudy’s!

          To LADebra – I saw your shout out earlier today! We have been fortunate during this horrible flooding. Thank you for asking!

          I tweeted a comment about RHOMelbourne this weekend, yesterday? Can’t ‘member when exactly, but it’s all on my timeline, of course…but anywayyyyyy….Gamble’s sis favorited the comment and then followed me on twitter!!! Fun! Tempest Waters @temDW I wonder if she knows about Lynnfam?

    I watched NY. Victoria is talented. Her self portrait looks just like her. I don’t blame Lu for shedding a little tear in her TH. Victoria came out on the other side of her brief rebellious stage. It looks like Lu’s kids will continue to do well in spite of their family turmoil 3, 4 yrs ago.

  7. mrs peabody says:

    so are Reza and Adam married or not? He kind of implied on WWH that they may have gotten married in Thailand after all so I thought they all went over there but that does not appear to be the case so what is their status now? Anyone know. Also I think GG is mad because there was a lot of flirting and whatever and Mike never completed the deal with her and that’s what got her so mad. I’m wondering how she can remember exactly what happened if they were all as messed up and he was. Maybe she didn’t take any of those pills. How can she know if he remembers or not.

    • SunnyGirl says:

      Mrs. Peabody – on the after show, GG stated that the next morning, Mike kind of whispered to her not to tell anyone what had happened. So he had to have remembered part of it.

      • mrs peabody says:

        Really, I never heard that. I wonder why she just didn’t say that on the show.

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

          Interesting ^^^^^^

          And maybe they cut that juicy fact out so stupid Andy can get it out of them at the reunion, should Mike attend it.

  8. SunnyGirl says:

    Did anyone watch Southern Charm (and I always want to call it Southern Comfort) last night? It ended in a very strange way.

    • Yes, that show gives me a tummy ache. All Bravo shows give me a tummy ache though.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      I did watch SC after giving up on Texas Rising on the History Channel. I like SC and the characters (and I do mean characters). Glad to see Craig pack up and go home. He finally realized he is not financially able to live the life of Shep, Whitney and Thomas. I hope that Landon does not come back. Love me some Cameran. Thomas and Kathryn are not meant to be together. Can’t wait for the reunion to see where everyone is now.

      • SunnyGirl says:

        Absolutely, Thomas and Kathryn are not meant to be together….it’s painful to watch. Both of them look ridiculous. I’m also glad Craig went home. Hopefully he can study and then sit for the bar. I’m not sure how I feel about Landon. In one breath she is whining and in then next she is sticking up for herself. I’m not sure Landon knows who Landon is.

        I love Cameran and Shep the best. And I liked Thomas before he got caught up in this Kathryn drama. I’ll be watching the reunion. It will be interesting.

        • Powell says:

          I feel Thomas used Kathryn. Last season his dad told him to find a girl and her her pregnant. Thomas did just that. He got his heir. I guess now he can find him a 50 yr old woman and get married.

          • SunnyGirl says:

            Do you think Thomas wants a 50 year old woman? It seems to me he is always looking for a younger one. Any smart woman over 50 wouldn’t want him.

            • Powell says:

              I don’t feel he wants a 50 yr old bit he got the young girl he wanted and then gripes he and Kathryn come from different worlds. Well what the heck doesn’t he expect would happen being w/a younger woman? He can’t have it both ways.

      • Powell says:

        I tweeted Cameron why does she always drive and the guys should pick her up. She favorited the tweet. She always favorites my tweets.

    • Powell says:

      Well I tell you Whitney, Patricia and Thomas were on Southern Comfort. They treat Kathryn so unfairly.
      Now Whitney says Kathryn put her hairstylist up to filing the charges against Thomas. Thomas half heartedly said he “wouldn’t go that far”, I think is what he said. Why doesn’t Thomas pull his head out of his ass? Whitney is poison.

      • SunnyGirl says:

        It’ll be interesting to see the reunion – and see where Thomas and Kathryn are at right now. When Thomas was on WWHL a few weeks back, Kathryn was in the audience.
        I think Whitney stirs the pot — not sure why. Of course, his gorgeous model girlfriend kind of blew him off when she visited.
        I could see Shep and Landon becoming a “thing” even though they’ve said no, they are friends. They look right together.

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

          Shep retweeted something about him and Landon (I always want to type Donovan) – so he acknowledges it – but it’s not to be IMHO.

          Whitney is a product of his (strange ? Is his bio father alive? 4 dads?) upbringing. Man did that kid need like 6 siblings.
          I have to see what Tamara T digs up on Lady Altschul these days. 😝

    Namaste thanks for blogging and hope you’re feeling better.

    TARTS — and anyone in that area of the country, please stay safe!

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

    Sorry I may be alone on this (😛) but I think Asa and Reza are super selfish to think “hey – YEAH let’s totes go on this fabulous trip and SCREW what the poor fiancé at home may be feeling!!!!” (I blame Asssssa and not MJ bc ASSSSSS-a claims to be so “close” to Adam, etc).
    Such selfish selfish creatures.

    There WAS a huge delay in this all airing as their production company had issues or whatever that slowed the airing of the season but still……

    MJ is stupid if she’s not pregnant by now or at least on drugs. I’m doing the exact testing she’s had done soon and I’m younger than her. I guess, she is lucky – that bit?(

    Sorry he may be beige for you guys but I really really like Shervin’s personality. If I could put him into Joyce’s German hubby’s body and create a nice (much taller)German guy I’d fall in endless love. 😍😝😝😝😂😂😂

    #teamGG always.
    Thanks for the recaps !

    • Powell says:

      Well really the trip should have been cancelled but Reza said the money was spent. I don’t really know how Reza and Adam came to the conclusion that Reza and his friends would go. Why not Adam go? IDK. I don’t think Asa can be blamed.

      IDK what MJ is doing. Didn’t she and the BF break up? She was on Steve Harvey I’m March doing a dating game type of show.

      I like Shervin. I like that he told everyone at the table to stop discussing Bobby and Asifa cuz they were sucking the life out of the vaca. Then he told Asifa she needs to think about what she’s doing.

    • A small thing about Shervin- when a woman gets up from the table, he does too. I really like those old fashioned courtly manners.

      Someone trained him well.

  12. shamrockblonde says:

    Congrats to our Lynnam grads!!! – I have no doubt that they will do well in all of their endeavors, and I know they have nothing but support, laughter and courage in family that stands with them!! best of luck! *hugs grads really hard*

    if my daughter ever painted a nude self-portrait and then displayed it at an art gallery I would buy it immediately –

    I agree with SunnyGirl – the food is the real star of the Shahs – why wasn’t MJ’s boyfriend on the trip? and who is this Shervin guy? I wonder if Jessica is refusing to film…I think she truly dislikes Reza – and speaking of Reza – why are you butting in between Bobby and Assifa – yes I know the spelling is off – when they began arguing and neither of them walked away, the group should have left – those two – sooo annoying –

    and yes, Mike was a pompous asshat in his talking head – “so what it if I did have sex with her?’ really Mike – who was that comment for? – what was that supposed to accomplish? to make you look all cool and tough? a really bad attempt to downplay it all? to show how above it all you are? whatever the reason, it was an epic fail – Jessica’s head must have exploded –

    note to Asa – you may be a priestess *giant eye roll* – but you are not a couples counselor – stay out of Bobby and Assifa’s business – you too Reza….

    • SunnyGirl says:

      Love it! “Pompous asshat.” Couldn’t have said it better myself.
      I just really want the Shahs to get back to what they are good at……

    • Powell says:

      I was surprised Lu didn’t purchase the painting too. Maybe she did off camera. They’ll probably bring it up at the reunion.

      Reza nor Asa could really help bringing it up cuz Asifa and Bobby started the second they got on the plane.

      They all kept asking Bobby and Asifa to discuss it privately but they didn’t so the group did eventually leave and that’s when Bobby told Asifa it was over and he’s leaving their room. That whole thing was crazy. They were mad at each other in LA then sit next to one another on the plane and then stay in the room together. Just crazy.

  13. Did anyone see the TMZ story about Kim Richards falling off the wagon again!!!!!! I am trying to work, but couldn’t resist.
    http://www.tmz.com/2015/05/26/kim-richards-relapse-drugs-alcohol-wedding-mexico-brooke-rehab/

    • SunnyGirl says:

      That would not surprise me. I hope it’s not true, but I would not be a bit surprised.

    • TexasTart says:

      When I saw the first pic of her Saturday, I posted here that she had that trademark numb mouth and those crazy eyes, so this just validates what I (and loads of other people) thought.

    • Powell says:

      Well. Who one the bet? If it’s true. 😏

    • Powell says:

      And if true Kim won. She got what she wanted from what she said on Dr. Phil. She went to the wedding and isn’t in “rehab”. If a sober coach can’t help then she needs real rehab. No getting permission to leave and go back.

    • SunnyGirl says:

      Also, she isn’t showing the court (before her court date in June) that she is at all repentant for her actions or working to get clean. Nothing she has done looks good – including going on Dr. Phil, leaving rehab for a bridal shower or leaving rehab to LEAVE THE COUNTRY for a wedding. (I would have thought they would have taken her passport from her when she was arrested and charged). And she needs to have some character references — looks like she is burning all her bridges.
      I wonder if this is the 911 emergency Kathy Hilton was tweeting about.

      • Exit4 says:

        I went to both Canada and Mexico and didn’t need a passport. But that was a long time ago and the rules have probably changed.

        • Veena (NMD) says:

          You need a passport or an official ID from motor vehicles (not just a driver’s license), but I suspect they didn’t take her passport away.

      • Nickel says:

        I bet the sober coach called KH to quit and 911 Tweets ensued.

      • T-Rex says:

        Sunny, the charges she faces do not warrant taking away a passport as when she was bailed out of jail she would have signed a document to appear in court of forfeit her bail, and have a warrant for arrest for failure to appear, she would not have been labelled a “flight risk”. I agree that this TOTALLY explains the 911 twats over the weekend, they all got word she was using and they probably couldn’t find her, and when they did she was HAMMERED and belligerent so the Sober Coach quit, I wonder if the Malibu place will even take her back? The Dr. Phil show was paying for the place so will be interesting to see how this will play out. Dr. Phil is a famewhore and will continue to pay to get that followup story, so who knows

    • Nickel says:

      Who didn’t see that one coming? 😒

    • Orson says:

      I’m shocked, shocked to hear Kim fell off the wagon!

    • Barb (Just wondering in Jersey) says:

      Big surprise…Not.

    • T-Rex says:

      Supposedly she DID have a sober companion there for the weekend and from all accounts they QUIT after DrugAddictAlcoholicKim went on another bender~ I personally believe that Monty was asked NOT to attend the wedding because they knew she would get into his cancer pain meds. Look, she needs Betty Ford/Hazeldon at this point which is a complete lockdown facility to truly detox and try to become sober, although she has no want to become sober. As some here have expressed so eloquently, you have to choose to become sober, no one can force you. And those here that have to deal with these types of family members who think they DON”T have a problem, know that pain of having to constantly watch them “use” and spiral downward. I think if this story is true Bravo will drop her. Monty is now living with KruellaKathyHilton and her husband, I can’t see them allowing this drug and alcohol abuser in their home either.

      • Powell says:

        ITA T-Rex. She needs lockdown.

        Wow Monty is w/Kathy and Rick?! I’m astonished.

        • T-Rex says:

          He has been living there for weeks, could be months. that’s why he keeps posting pics by their pool. They are VERY VERY VERY good friends, it’s how DrugAddictAlcoholicKim met him, then she got knocked up to “seal” the deal way back when.

    • “Cursing the groom’s family”

      Good times. The stuff that memories are made.

      I take everything bad I ever said about the bride back. Maybe she had the wedding in Cabo to get the feck away from this lunatic.

      No more FatBurger for Kim I guess….

    • TexasTart says:

      Oh! Now we know why Monty and Kathy didn’t go to the wedding —- SO IT WILL BE KYLE’S FAULT!

      • Powell says:

        Orson said Booble Bobble Head will say it’s Lisa’s fault.

        • vilzvet says:

          Absolutely not a surprise and to be expected. Can you imagine what a nightmare she was? Here is another scoopy link: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-3098015/Kim-Richards-influence-daughter-Brooke-s-wedding-sober-coach-quits-control-behavior.html

          • T-Rex says:

            So, based upon the recent events and the near past events, DrugAddict/AlcholicKim has NEVER been sober, she just pretended to be so on television. It’s just that now, in my opinion there are more drugs involved, which is why she is acting so crazy, again Oxy and alcohol DO NOT MIX, then add the rumor of meth, which I don’t know about, but that would also explain her bad behaviour while on alcohol. So now, BOTH her daughters are no longer speaking with her, I wonder if KruellaKathy is going to welcome her back into her home, because with no paycheck DrugAddict/AlcoholicKim will be homeless she doesn’t own a home or even a car, she rents and leases everything.

            • I dunno about meth either- I think she’s huffing glue and paint thinner- anything she can get her hands on that also flies under the radar screen.

              The toxicology (?) report said it was in her system…but her teeth still look pretty good and no scabs on her face, so I don’t think it’s meth. Yet.

            • Orson says:

              Kim still gets $23K a month alimony from her 2nd hubby unless she gets married.

              • T-Rex says:

                Orson, this is what I had thought as well, but there are varying reports that when she turned 50 she either lost or her alimony was reduced. I could be wrong but that was the impression kruellakathy gave in a couple of interviews. I hope I am wrong and she does get her 23k a month still. This way if she gets fired from Ho-wives as we all want, she at least has some income

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

    THIS SOUNDS FUN!

    • Powell says:

      This will be a Lisa and Scheana bit*hfest.

    • T-Rex says:

      Aaah I hope they are wildly inappropriate, spill lots of secrets because then hopefully for SURE will we hear that THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONSTFUBrandin will right next to SuperSpoiledUberBratStassi on that Bravo we FIRED YOUR ASS bench of life. Kit, sending you healing vibes for your ears and brain for having to listen to this Einstein fest!

      • Orson says:

        Actually, I’m quite interested in learning how Kim’s breakdown in Mexico is all Lisa VDP’s fault.

      • Powell says:

        Hey T-Rex how are you? Did you and Mr. T-Rex see the chiclets? 🙂
        Maybe that’s why Booble Bobble Head is having Stassi on. Because they are FiredKindredSpirits. 😉

        • T-Rex says:

          Powelly, doing okay we didn’t do much over the weekend, not feeling all that great, think it’s the heat, it’s gotten so hot so early this year. Hope to seem the fams over the summer though

  15. shamrockblonde says:

    that is exactly what it will be – ewww….

    Namaste!! – first, I hope you are feeling better and thank you for a great blog recap!! – not sure how you manage those blogs, but what we get is great commentary, written with great humour – perfect!!

  16. Powell says:

    Watching NY. I didn’t pay attention before but Lu sold some of her jewelry at her estate sale.

  17. LaineyLainey says:

    Hi SunnyGirl! I loved your blog, esp because my dvr did not record this episode. So now I feel like I didn’t miss a thing. My hubby commandeered the living room tv, and I tell him” if you want to watch something and the dvr says you can’t because of my bravo shows, then tell the dvr to forget Bravo, watch what you want.” That must have happened last night. So they go all the way to Thailand to sit by the pool, eat, and get massages? Seems like they do that in LA.

    I wholeheartedly agree with your opinion of the whole Asifa and Bobby crap. It’s crap!!

    • SunnyGirl says:

      I think, after a flight that lasted 19 hours, then a 13 hour layover and then another 7 hours, the only thing they felt like doing was relaxing. Maybe next week we will see something exciting!

    It’s off topic but I’ve been screaming inside to say this, Asa may have revamped her parents home ( wonderful gesture of love and respect ) but did anyone notice Asa’s cat door ? All around it was filthy, the floor, woodwork, paint…SHE NEEDS TO DO SOME WORK ON HER OWN HOUSE !!

    I like Reza, Adam, GG but not interested in the rest. Never liked Mike, P.S. Mike pull up your pants, when you sit your pants are almost off your behind.

    Don’t like any of the new people, they add nothing.

    Thank you for giving me an outlet to say what’s been building inside me about Asa’s house!!!

    Best to all

      LOL Class. Don’t scream inside. Scream right here w/us. Everyone does it. 😄😄
      I didn’t pay attention to the cat part. Me no likey cats so I diverted my eyes on some of that. 🙂
      I don’t see what Asifa and Bobby brought either. I like Shervin. Ryan Seacrest is trying to find the right fit since Lily left.

      • T-Rex says:

        Here is the deal, Dorinda, along with most of Manhatten society have known that LetharioMario has been cheating for YEARS on OldCraggydrunkRamona. So I can see why she would throw shade at LetharioMario. Yes, OldCraggyDrunkRamona should have left his cheating ass a LONG time ago, but she liked being married to a nice looking guy, she said that numerous times over the years.

      I would! I find him interesting. Id want to know about the clothing he’s worked on and how he came up with the different methods of cleaning and the solutions he uses. But then again, I studied that-so I’d enjoy meeting him.

  24. Powell says:

    #Doorgate. LOL.

  25. Powell says:

    I wouldn’t want to sit next to Ramona and Sonja at a dinner party. I think it would be interesting to sit next to all the other ladies. How about you all?

    • TexasTart says:

      Agree, I wouldn’t want to sit by Ramona & Sonia because they don’t listen, they just talk. They would just talk over us, lol

  26. Powell says:

    Dr. Amador did get B to open up about her true feelings. No way after a 5 yr old witnesses that crazy sh*t she’s ok and reconciled it as an adult. I’m glad he made her delve into her true feelings.

  27. Powell says:

    LOL Ramona. She’s not Latin. Is she celebrating the mag, the red dress,what? Ramona Sonja doesn’t know what she’s celebrating. HA!!

    • TexasTart says:

      Very happy interesting reverse WWHL

      • TexasTart says:

        I have NO idea where the word “happy” came from. Subliminal?! Here comes Andy’s sex question….

        Apollo and Joanna. Joanna?! Blech!

        It figures that Andy doesn’t have good taste in women.

  34. VV™ says:

    I don’t care what anybody says. IMO, Bethenny befriended Jill once she found out Jill was cast on the show.
    #alwaystheuser

    • Exit4 says:

      VV she did that Martha Stewart apprentice show years before HWs. She knew plenty of people before that-she didn’t need Jill! Andy didn’t even want her because originally, it was supposed to be a show called Manhatten Moms-but because OC was so successful-they changed course. It’s all in his first book.

      • Exit4 says:

        In fact-when OC came to them it was supposed to be called Behind the Gates. When the whole RHW concept was brought up-andy actually fought it, he thought it was dumb. But his boss saw the prospects for a franchise. He lost that battle and is so glad he did! I haven’t seen the show yet-so I don’t know if this came up. I just remember this from his book.

      • VV™ says:

        The story goes she met Jill at the Hamptons and Jill told her she was doing this reality show for Bravo. Jill encourage B to audition for it and when Andy “declined”, Jill told Andy she’d be good.

        I’m going by memory on interviews JZ and B did when promoting the show S1 and S2.

        • Exit4 says:

          Jill did push for her-because she likes to play casting director, but they were genuine friends in those early years. Until Jill decided to play games which ruined it.

          • Powell says:

            “I thought we would be like Lucy and Ethel.”. Wasn’t that what JZ said after her game blew up.

          • Cartwheels says:

            Bobby is the one who first approached Bethenny to do Manhattan moms , he introduced her to the producers who were scouting at a Hamptons party and even then Bethenny still took four months to submit her cast tape because she wasn’t sure she wanted to do it. There is a section in her book where Bethenny thanks Bobby for thinking of her and opening her a world of opportunities. It was Bobby Zarin, not Jill.

            • Exit4 says:

              ^^^^^Youre right-I think Bobby was the initial connection!

              • Cartwheels says:

                Yes he was, one of Bethenny’s book or section/chapter is dedicated to Bobby thanking him for giving her the platform to become a RHNY

        • VV™ says:

          Okay, it was not Jill. It was HER husband. However, I still remember Bethenny saying Jill encouraged her to audition. I know there’s a tape somewhere or in print of Bethenny saying that. (Like Bobby wouldn’t consult with Jill first (roll eyes).

          My point is and was Bethenny befriended the Zarins precisely because she knew they would be on a Reality Show. Many believe that too.

          • Cartwheels says:

            Bet henna didn’t approached them, Bobby approached her, Bobby has said so himself.

          • Exit4 says:

            She knew them before…and was casual friends with them. The point is, it wasn’t something she sought out via a friendship with them. Like you said THEY encouraged HER-they recommended her, that’s not her using them. It worked out in her favor, but I don’t believe she begged them to get her a spot.

            • VV™ says:

              On this interview Bethenny says “Bravo” approached her. So, which one is it?

              • Exit4 says:

                There’s a lot more to it-which I won’t get into-lets just leave it at for people who have or want a Media presence, it’s a very small world. But at the end of the day, the only thing that matters is if you have something to offer. If you dont, they pass you by-if you do-you get a platform. What you do with that, is up to you. Bravo wanted B and she delivered.

  35. Powell says:

    I am liking this wwhl. 😊

    • Cartwheels says:

      Lots of juicy information 😉

      Did andy in a shady way called Teresa and Melissa liars? He said their versions of the casting is so different and the truth is in the middle, U hmmm

      • Exit4 says:

        Without seeing it yet-I’m going with Teresa knew it was happening before the 11th hour and fought it until the end. They made the decision to cast Melissa when she pushed Andy!

    Who else thinks Bethenny is interviewing herself not Andy LOL

  37. VV™ says:

    Why the f*ck is that b*tch Brandi getting any mention on WWHL? If she’s back, I’m not watching RHOBH AND maybe that’s a good thing…

  38. TexasTart says:

    So interesting hearing Andy tell what fans are way hard on him, the Twitter mafia/gangs….and how NJ has the most intense fans. Which housewives contact him the most, how he protects those relationships.

    This is a must see interview for HW viewers.

    Did someone leave Jill a trail of bread crumbs, or pizza, so she could find her way back home? 🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕

    Love to hate or hate to hate, I guess if you are in the latter you get the boot, ala Carlton.

    I sure hope it is the same with Brandi.

    • Exit4 says:

      Yes.

    • kit9 says:

      Yah, that party was annoying when Andy mentioned Carlton and said that she didn’t work because she didn’t have a natural connection w/any of the women. BS! Carlton was exhibit A of a housewife people hated to hate!

      • T-Rex says:

        Kit you got it, crap even the witches(wiccans) hated her, LOL! They gave me the reason to call her the FakeWitch. They blasted her several times as absolutely not eschewing any of the Wiccan philosophies, she just created her own fake, made up religion, LOL

  41. Exit4 says:

    When they put me on the cover of “Yoga Pants International: The Wine Edition”, I promise you will all be invited.

  42. VV™ says:

    Okay, so there are three versions now. In her book, she credits Bobby, the clip I posted claims Bravo approached her, and now the clip below credits Jill (start watching at around the 11 min mark). So, which one is it?

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

      See we can just add Jill to the spreadsheet of the long lost “friends” of BF. 🙄

    Another Skinnygirl product placement with Carole in the furniture store. UGH. Bethenny carefully holds the bottle so the logo is facing perfectly centered toward the camera. Same thing in the scene when B met with Sonya and her team. Was Bethenny always walking around with bottled water before? lol.

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

      KIT- watch this entire entire season from frame 1 – and you’ll see that ANY TIME the fake sugared “healthy” drink she’s opening or her assistant is holding it in the car – the LOGO ALWAYS FACES perfectly straight to main camera.
      Always. It’s so effing eeeeerie. 👻

      That means wow— those scenes are so organic, so REAL, so NATURAL ……
      Cool ! 😖💩👅🚽🚽🚽🚽

      • kit9 says:

        lol. About as real as her meeting with her step father and her sessions with her shrink.

    • Powell says:

      Kit and Chismosa are you surprised? I’m aghast if you are. 😱 😄

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

        I’m aghast more people aren’t perturbed. But she’s just so REAL AND RAW on her jock. 🏇🏽

        #socool 🙄

  44. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. I enjoyed WWHL last night. I hope you did.

  45. SerenaNYC says:

    Does Andy know the majority of viewers “hate to hate” Brandi?

    Also, notice that currently the only person on BH that had no prior connection to the cast WAS Brandi?
