Hiltons / Richards Carry on As Kim reportedly Falls off Wagon at Daughter’s Wedding / Real Housewives of New York “The Cavi-Art of War”

Hiltons / Richards Carry on As Kim reportedly Falls off Wagon at Daughter’s Wedding

It is a busy time for the Hilton / Richards clan.  Kim Richard’s daughter Brook had her big public wedding this weekend in Cabo, with everyone (including aunt Kyle) except aunt Kathy Hilton and father Monty (too ill to travel) in attendance.  Her mom, Kim Richards, was out of rehab with a sober coach attending the event.  While pictures showed happy, smiling faces, behind the scenes Kathy Hilton tweeted a curious 911, and TMZ reported that Kim Richards fell off the wagon and was mean to the bride and belligerent to guests.  Her sober coach allegedly left Cabo without her, and no word on whether she has found her way back to rehab.  Also no word on Kathy’s curious 911 or why she couldn’t fly down to attend the wedding.

Kathy Hilton's 911 tweets didn't tag any of her family - it was very very strange

Some of the group were back in LA for Nicky Hilton’s bridal shower  – including aunt Kyle Richards.  This is the first photo of Kathy and Kyle we’ve seen in a LONG time.

As for anyone commenting on the “Kim” story, the closest I could find was Kathy retweeted a curious “rehab” tweet, and Brandi replying to it saying she hoped Kim was okay.  It doesn’t look like Brandi was invited to any of the events.

“The Cavi-Art of War” – S7E8

by Stars99

Group Shot

Remember Last Week…

Ramona continued her birthday celebration by hosting a luncheon. Some of the invitees had so much plastic surgery and work done that Bethenny told us they looked like they belonged at the Star Wars Cantina. I think she just wants another excuse to serve Skinny Girl margaritas, no? Bethenny met with her therapist and realized that some of her trust issues are really about herself because she’s been so wrong about people… Kristin whines about Bethenny choosing to stay home with Bryn instead of going to a boxing match with the others…. Carole, in her talking head (TH) says that LuAnn lecturing her on dating younger men is like the Saudi government lecturing the world on feminism. Bethenny had a heart-to-heart conversation with her estranged step-father who she hadn’t seen in over 20 years. LuAnn’s daughter, Victoria, had one of her art pieces displayed at Art Basel which is a modern and contemporary art show. After viewing Victoria’s completely naked self-portrait, LuAnn and Bethenny feed a clown… for $3.00. So the clown got fed AND got paid. I think we’re all in the wrong line of work…

This Week…

I was thinking today about how easy it is to lay on a couch armed with a remote and a keyboard and pronounce judgments on TV personalities. While I do love to snark – and they do some very snarkworthy things – I felt I would be remiss if I didn’t also remember some of the challenges they’ve had/or are having in life:

RAMONA – By her own admission, she was brought up in an abusive home. She was adamant about teaching self-reliance to her daughter so she would never feel like she had to rely on a man as her source of income. She said she considers making her own money to be an aphrodisiac. Now, since she’s contemplating how divorce will impact her life – She may very well turn into that independent, self-reliant woman that she’s talked about all these years.  Mario repeatedly cheated on her and wants to come back. Ramona is confused. I’m guessing it’s hard for her to go places by herself. And share custody of a dog. The loud silence of an empty nest is deafening.

SONJA – She weathered a divorce from a very wealthy man who had a prenup. Their daughter is 14-years-old… That means Sonja has a teenager in the house which is no small challenge. Sonja Productions, LLC was sued for breach of contract and was awarded a multi-million dollar settlement. She was forced to declare bankruptcy. Sonja has been holding onto her home with both hands for dear life throughout it all. She repeatedly trusts people who only look at the dollar sign they think they see over her head. Her ex-husband is 33 years older than she… She is now cougarifically opting to date men approximately 33 years younger than she. That’s a 66 year spread… Surely, Mr. Right is somewhere in there, no?

CAROLE – Before being on RHONYC, Carole had a highly successful career. As we know, her husband and one of her very close friends horrifically died within 4 weeks of each other. Grief upon grief is excruciatingly traumatic. When you see the fleeting nature of life – It certainly compels you to want to play more and work less. Carole could not care less about what anyone has to say about her life. Except for maybe a young chef… She might care about what he has to say.

HEATHER – One of Heather’s challenges has been that she’s a strong, female entrepreneur in a very competitive male world. She has had to fight and claw her way to make her company successful. She also deals day in and day out with a child who is very ill. Her son had to have a liver transplant as a baby. He has had to live with hearing and respiratory issues ever since. It’s tough to have a child who is chronically sick when you can’t do much to make it better except for being his advocate. Many of us have had to deal with healthcare and resultant paperwork – and that alone can put you over the edge. Both of these challenges could cause someone to have a tough exterior – And evidently, they also cause you to pretend to be a rapper. Holla…

BETHENNY – Last week we learned more about the nature of Bethenny’s childhood. Her Dad abandoned her and her Mom who was cheating on him. There were drugs, alcohol, sex and danger all around her. As a reality star, she met, married and is now divorcing her Prince Charming – While we all watch. While she has had HUGE success with her Skinny Girl brand and products – Her ex seems to want to take a nice, large chunk of that away. Meanwhile, her talk show got cancelled and she looks at it as a failure. This season, her big re-entry into this franchise hasn’t translated into a big increase in viewership. I hope she doesn’t blame herself for it…

LUANN – Her husband cheated on her and she went through her divorce while on this show. She set herself up on a royal pedestal from which she has fallen. However, she is getting back up. She is being verbal. She downsized her Hampton home to a house we all would probably love to visit. Money can’t buy you class (or a voice) but it sure can buy you a house on a lake, my friend.

DORINDA – While we don’t know much about the “new girl” – We do know that she was divorced from her 1st husband who is her daughter’s Father. We also know that her wonderful 2nd husband tragically died and that loss devastated Dorinda and her daughter. She has lived through two dramatic losses of relationship. When you lose the love of your life, I guess it’s probably hard to find someone who can comparably come close to their caliber. I personally wish that Dorinda would aim differently than at her current boyfriend “What’s His Name” (John). I believe she deserves someone who loves and adores her. I don’t think “What’s His Name” does. But that’s just my opinion… And what do I know?

KRISTEN – She’s had to deal with the insurmountable challenge of being Brandi Glanville’s friend (Sorry, I just had to… Brandi is from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills – And well… I’m just going to stop there…). Previously, Kristen had to deal with her daughter being a bit behind developmentally. However everything seems to be better now… Well, except that she’s still married to Josh. Last season, he did not come off as being very likeable but both Kristen and he seem to have done what most never do… They actually watched themselves and made positive changes in their relationship. Kristen’s challenge this season is that she has blended into the sea of housewives in the background.

I’m not sure why it was hard for me to settle down to write this week’s blog – but it was. I first had to look at several videos of dogs playing with babies… And then dogs playing with their puppies (http://onemorepost.com/husky-playing/)… Then a Walk Off the Earth video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHF0gsRsNBw)… Of course I also had to take time to take the quiz, “Which Real Housewife of Melbourne are You? (http://www.buzzfeed.com/stephanieanderson/which-real-housewife-of-melbourne-are-you#.tolVwK3N8n) – I got Chyka for which I breathed a huge sigh of relief for some unknown reason… And then I finally rearranged all the stuff on the table next to me. Cuz you know… Who can write with an unorganized table staring right at her? Sigh.

This episode seemed to be all over the place – Just like my thoughts are at this point. Don’t get me wrong, it was an okay episode – but it was like a puzzle with too many pieces that didn’t match together quite right. I think it’s because there are way too many housewives on the show. It is not easy to seamlessly weave the lives of 8 different women together…


Ramona-I dont know

Stuff that Happened During this Episode…

~~ Dorinda and Ramona meet for drinks…This scene made me cranky cuz Ramona is obviously sick but still decides to spread her germs to the world. Stay home if you’re sick, dagnabit! She then talks about how she has to go to a couple of upcoming parties even though she’s sick – Because after all – You never know who you’re going to meet! Yes, cuz mucus is oh so attractive.

As I type this next part I suddenly realize that one of the reasons tonight’s episode has me feeling all wonky is because they start talking about Mario. He wants to come back into Ramona’s life. Dorinda asks a series of questions, “What do you want to do?” “When you see him how do you feel?” Ramona says she doesn’t know. This is where I just want to shake some sense into her. Ramona’s happy that Mario and her daughter have made amends because he finally owned that what he did was wrong… Yeah, let THAT sink in for a moment…It took him THAT long to figure it out… She’s still contemplating taking him back… In fact, in another part of the episode, Ramona let it slip out that she took some of the food from her Sports Bar to Mario… Really??? Ughghghghghghgh… That pounding you hear is me banging my head against the wall.

Later, in this VERY SAME EPISODE, Ramona tells Carole that she’s met someone that she’s seen a few times. He shows up with her to Dorinda’s birthday dinner. Of course, this is “transition guy” who generally doesn’t have a chance for making it as a long-term relationship prospect… But I do love that she’s dating, though… There are plenty of fish out there, my friend… Plenty of fish. Kiss that cheating BASS of a turd, Mario, goodbye – Once and for all.

~~ Carole wanted to be elected to the Board that governs her apartment building so she launched a campaign. She ran her campaign on the platform of “transparency.” During her election night party, she became “transparent” when she broke the news that her appetizers were likely well over 2 years old. Everyone gasped and I just laughed. No one goes to Carole’s house for the food. She won, by the way – As if there was any question she wouldn’t.

Sonja - Copy

~~ In pretty much Sonja’s only appearance this episode, she hosted a press thingie because she was on the magazine cover of Delirious Weekly wearing a fire engine red dress from her collection. I kid, I kid – Actually, she was on the cover of Latino Show magazine. The photo spread impressed Kristen but not Heather. Heather criticized, “One dress does not a collection make…”

Heather - 1 dress (1)

Sonja, wearing said fire engine red dress, proudly introduced Heather and Kristen to her “fashion team.” This is Sonja’s brain trust of a team who I fear are trying to milk Sonja out of every dollar she’s got… Heather asks them, “Where are you selling?” Their noncommittal response was that they’re talking to “several stores and chains.” Sure you are… Gosh, it’s like I’ve heard that somewhere before, no?

In tonight’s edition of “I Kid You Not” – Heather, managed to alienate 75% of the country by dissing Sonja’s efforts I KID YOU NOT by asking if Sonja’s collection was going to be sold at “a K-Mart kind of chain.” Sonja recoiled and prattled on about the quality of the Italian fabric – And how her team has “invested years and all this money into it.”

Heather TH

Of course, this was also an extremely short-sighted response. Perhaps you should both talk to Jaclyn Smith or Martha Stewart. In her TH, Heather backpedals and says that Sonja’s just being sensitive and that K-mart is a huge retailer and not something to look down your nose at…” Right… Because you know you totally meant that comment as a compliment. Wow. You would think someone within the industry would know better than to say something like that…

Things I couldn’t Agree with More…

~~ Ramona said there were people who didn’t want to be sitting next to “What’s His Name” (John – Dorinda’s creepy boyfriend) at a dinner party. I don’t want to be within 50 feet of him much less sitting next to him. The way he always leers at women gives me a major case of the creepies.

~~ Heather had a conversation with Bethenny about how Heather wants to get the Angelina Jolie “Maleficent” head tattooed on her hip. Heather says to Bethenny, “Isn’t that kind of cool?” Bethenny compliantly nods and agrees at the time. However in her TH, Bethenny emphatically says, “No.” It was hilarious. I think Heather is just desperately trying to be “hip.” Get it? Hahahahahaaaa…

Kristen-big deal

Things that Made Me Laugh but Probably Shouldn’t Have…

~~ Kristen decided to apologize to Sonja for being negative about her business enterprises. Kristen was talking to some guy who was remarking about how mean Sonja’s friends have been towards her and her endeavors. Kristen realized she was one of “those” friends. Oops!

~~ When Carole was talking on the phone with the VP of her apartment board, she had her mouth full. I dunno why… but it just cracked me up.

B and C Tissue2 - Copy

~~ Bethenny and Carole went shopping at CB2. For some reason, that alone makes me die laffin’. It just feels like an unlikely pair of shopping buddies. Bethenny ends up crying to an awkwardly non-nurturing Carole who offers to go get her a tissue. She returns with what looks like a cloth napkin that they’re selling at the store. They both laugh over who is going to buy the $2 item and the two non-huggers make plans to hug sometime in the future.

~~ Bethenny met with Dr. Amador, her therapist. I laughed and gasped when she got really pissy and sarcastic with him when he pressed her to tell him more about what her step-father had said he was sorry about from last week’s episode. He wanted to know about what he had acknowledged and what it felt like to Bethenny. I’m frustrated because evidently they really can’t talk about the real Jason Hoppy elephant in the room which Bethenny said was so much worse of an experience than what she went through as a child.

I find that I’m really uncomfortable listening in on these therapy sessions now because she is so raw and vulnerable. This whole reunion with her step-father, while important somehow feels like a distraction from the real issues swirling around in her head. She could have waited another year until things were more settled in other areas of her life before reconnecting with him – Especially on-camera. I know she initiated contact with her step-father 2 years ago… but still. Ugh. Bethenny was exhausted after the session. So was I… I grow tired…

~~ The most hilarious part of tonight’s episode, was when Ramona and her partner were conducting interviews for new staff at their AOA Bar and Grill.  A verbal question was asked of one of the applicants, “What are you doing right now?” With a very straight face, the applicant responded, “I’m here.” Everyone burst out laughing and the applicant completely looked like she had no idea why. … lolol…

When the question was clarified to mean they were asking about her current employment situation, the applicant responded that she was “currently between employment.” When asked what happened, she responded that things just disappeared and that there was a misunderstanding.

This very same applicant was asked about a response on her written application to the question about listing other office machines she knows how to use. She… I KID YOU NOT… actually wrote down, “stapler.” Ramona and her partner could not keep from laughing – But she quickly explained she thought it would be important for her to know how to use a stapler so she could staple the receipts together. I weep for our future.

Another question on the written application was, “What types of computer software do you have proficiency in?” This same applicant responded by writing, “Micros, Instagram, Tinder, Word, and Twitter.” Again, I weep.

The Final Scene…

LuAnn decided to host a dinner at Petrossian’s for Dorinda’s 50th birthday. I’m confused at why Ramona didn’t host it… But okay… Next week they’re all going to the Berkshires to further celebrate it so maybe Ramona’s hosting something there.

Ramona shows up with “her friend” Michael. Wow… He’s already on the show? They find out they met because Ramona walked up to him one night and said that she liked his shirt. I have to laugh… Do those opening lines still work? Fortunately, LuAnn doesn’t bring one of her youngsters with her. I’m surprised that Bethenny, Carole, Kristen, and Sonja aren’t there… Oh well – They probably had trouble finding childcare. Oh wait, Carole didn’t have to arrange childcare because her date is overseas at the moment…lol (Oh, snap!).

Dorinda and “What’s His Name” (John) show up. Sigh. John immediately leers at the “Caviar Girl.” When she leaves, he conveniently excuses himself to go to the bathroom. He’s gone for quite a while. I mean seriously… Quite a while.

LuAnn tries to toast the evening by saying they all are lovers – They all love good men… good food… and good champagne. She talks about how her friendship with Ramona has experienced some bumps and potholes.

Heather and LuAnn try to tell Ramona that she’s been through a metamorphosis. Ramona disagrees and says that she’s always been this way. Ramona explains that her walls come down with people like Dorinda because she is naturally welcoming and she feels like she can be herself around her.

Ramona explains that she feels there is a wall of insincerity towards her when it comes to Heather and LuAnn. Heather tells her that is her wall. Ramona tells Heather she’s being aggressive – That she was just expressing her feelings and Heather negated them.

Heather tells Ramona to chill out a little bit… lol.

Heather tries to explain that they didn’t get off on the right foot in the beginning – But that she’s seen a lot of change and growth in Ramona. Ramona disagrees and goes over to hug her friend Dorinda. Heather and LuAnn accuse Ramona of wanting to deflect and sweet things under the carpet.

Ramona and Dorinda Finger

LuAnn is confused at where all this kissy kissy is coming from since Dorinda recently called LuAnn when she was very upset and said that Ramona wasn’t being very nice to her. Dorinda explained to a surprised Ramona that she told LuAnn that Ramona wasn’t being nice about John. They go into a back and forth about who said what to whom…

LuAnn - Total Lie - Copy

LuAnn explains that she and Ramona had a conversation about John in which they both were critical of him. Evidently, Ramona told Dorinda about that conversation but conveniently left out the part that she was a full participant in the conversation and said some equally disparaging stuff about him.

In her TH, Dorinda tells us that she just doesn’t understand all of this over-observing of John… She thinks he must be like a creature in the wild that they’ve seen for the first time… She tells us that she’s not even that focused on him. Well, at least Dorinda got the “creature” part right, no?

John finally returns to the table after chatting up all the girls in the bar… At least I think that’s what he was doing… (Shivers)…

In her TH, Heather says that everyone is shaking their heads at John and Dorinda’s relationship behind their backs – but that it doesn’t mean you have to throw it in her face.

Dorinda recognizes something she may not have fully understood before, when she says, “At the end of the day, Ramona was just using LuAnn as the scape goat.” Ramona gets John’s attention and tells him that she doesn’t know what LuAnn is pulling but that she’s happy that John makes Dorinda happy. Ramona toasts, “If Dorinda is happy – I’m happy.” LuAnn announces she’s going to stick Ramona’s face into the caviar right now. Well, I suppose she could have if Heather hadn’t eaten it all…

Ratings…

The following chart depicts this season’s viewership by episode (Thanks to Randy at http://bravowhore.com/):

Viewership - Copy

As you can see, viewership for last week’s episode decreased to the lowest point of the season thus far… Rut roh…

Next Week…

The group goes to Dorinda’s house in the Berkshires to celebrate her 50th birthday. Dorinda calls out a very surprised Kristen for shimmying with her boyfriend… Kristen is aghast… LuAnn tells Ramona that she pulled a “Ramona.”… LuAnn and Carole find an article online about how there’s some sort of love triangle with Ramona’s new man because he allegedly has also locked lips with Mario’s mistress…  Bethenny surprises everyone by showing up and she and Heather get into some drama at dinner. Happy Birthday, Dorinda!

Well, that’s it for this week – Thanks for reading… Hope to see you next week… Happy Trails!

  1. I want to say (before even beginning to read the blog, that I love Remember Last Week. LOVE IT! Always have, always will!

    • Powell says:

      How you doing Namaste? BIG hugs to you. 🙅🙅
      I love “Remember last week too.”. It really gets you in the soap opera mood. 🙂

      • Doing pretty good! Better than expected actually. Its a pain in the ass to not be able to lift anything heavier than ten pounds and to not be able to get in my pool (which is my fav part of the sun being out) but those are just annoyances and I am glad to be feeling pretty good!

      • Stars99 says:

        lol Powelly… It does seem kinda like a soap opera, no? lol… I hear dramatic music in my head…lol

    • Stars99 says:

      So sweet, namaste… So glad you like it… 🙂

  2. I read the whole thing and it is awesome and made me laugh out loud several times and I still can’t get over the fact that a potential employee listed operating a stapler as a “skill”. I am an executive recruiter and love reading resumes for entertainment. I especially love those that include a photo. BTW, if your LinkedIn profile pic was taken at a party or a family function, TAKE IT DOWN! Your LinkedIn pic should be a professional pic and not a “selfie” or one of you holding a red solo cup at the Kenny Chesney concert.

    • Powell says:

      Did they list “Master Staple Remover”? That will surely get them top pay. 🙂
      And don’t post a pic in front of a kegarator. Lol

      • FattyCat says:

        you mean I should remove stapling, assembling boxes, and making really good coffee from my resume????

        Made me laugh too, wish I could get away with responses like that on job interviews, guess you have to be under 30 to get away with things like that!

      • When your bored some day, scroll on LinkedIn for a while and look at all the inappropriate pics people post there. It is so wrong. (Yet so right for people like us!)

        • FattyCat says:

          lol, I’m on LinkedIn and I don’t have a photo up because I don’t have an appropriate one and don’t want a selfie. I get that you need a LinkedIn account, but it’s not truly helped me much. Sorry, pissy mood, got yet another rejection for an application but keeping my chin (both of them ;)) up as I do have a possible interview! 😦 It sucks being over 50 and out of work!

          I worked closing with the Dir of Admin/HR in one job and it blew my mind what people wrote in cover letters, listed as skills, and showed up in for interviews!

          • Stars99 says:

            You’ll find a good job match, FattyCat – May you find a place that will fully value and validate your worthfulness.

            • FattyCat says:

              🙂 thank you Stars99, didn’t mean to dump and do a “Kristin” whine 🙂

              • Stars99 says:

                Not at all… It’s genuinely tough to find a job… And besides, this is a safe place to “whine”… lol

    • I loved the “interview” with Ramona and her biz partner! I laughed and had to tell hubs to give him a laugh. I thought the reactions of all three were PRICELESS! Love that guy, what ever his name is.

    • T-Rex says:

      Namaste- I worked back in the Stone Age for a Staffing Agency and even back then the resumes and skills folks chose I would just cringe at, then they wondered why we couldn’t get them their dream job. I love the “answer the phone” as a skill, uhm a five year old can “answer a phone”, well you should use Receptionist, although some didn’t do better than a five year old, LOL! We would have to test them and I cannot tell you how many would answer the phone “Hello?”, yeah you are NOT qualified to answer a business phone. Today we have seen resumes come thru to our HR department, noting their Instagram and Facebook info, seriously?!?!? One person had freakin BONG smoking pictures on their pages, yeah we are NOT hiring you, LOL! Someone needs to do website for bad LinkedIn pictures, we had one she did the whole pursed lips and she did the picture in her bathroom, in what we think was a very short skirt which somehow also revealed she was wearing a thong. Nothing says BUSINESS Professional than a Selfie in your bathroom!

    • Stars99 says:

      namaste… So glad you laughed… I just couldn’t get over that interview… I must be remiss in filling out all my job applications… I am AWESOME with a tape dispenser… Seriously… 🙂

  3. HuskerHuny says:

    HAPPIEST OF HUMPS DAYS Y’ALL!!! And it is a very happy humpty dumpty day here – the sun is shining!!! Finally! Can’t believe I fell asleep during the second running of RHNY, but the blog made up for it! Excellent work. I feel bad complaining about our weather when things are so bad in Texas and Oklahoma. Stay safe all of you!

    But I did catch all of Bethenny’s interview of Any on WWH(L). Wasn’t live because B’s hair had not been cut. I now know why her talk show was cancelled (a show I never watched, by the way). She doesn’t ask succinct questions. She goes on and on and on so much that I forget what she’s actually asking. If she could have kept her questions to a minimum of words, she could have asked Andy so much more. Some of her questions were great though (those that she didn’t drone on about). And she still hasn’t learned to slow down her speech pattern. It’s like listening to a machine gun.

    Scored a season high of 80 points at trivia last night. We are going to the finals this time with a chance to earn a bit of cool cash. Wish us luck!

    • Powell says:

      I agree she droned on w/some of the questions but all in all she asked great questions. The OC, NJ, NY, BH. Andy didn’t mention Miami in any of his answers.
      Congrats on 80!

    • Stars99 says:

      Thanks, Husker H – Hope you win lots o’money!

  4. Orson says:

    Very well done, Starzy. My condolences for having to watch the episode.

    • Stars99 says:

      Thanks, Orson, no not Wells but the one from Ork – It wasn’t a bad episode just a disorganized one… Way too many housewives, IMO.

  5. plainviewsue says:

    I cracked up watching the interview but laughed even hard with Stars recap!! OMG, using a stapler? Where are you now. I’m here. Best part of the episode.

    I know some people find it boring, but I am enjoying the season. It’s nice not to hate any of the women. I think Bethenny is being featured so much which is why Kristen and Heather have fallen to the side.

    I find Kristen funny in a very harmless way. But she should probably be a friend of the HW’s. I didn’t see anything wrong with Heather’s conversation with Bethenny, but as always, Bethenny dictates what can and can’t be discussed. I think Heather’s blog sums it up well.

    It makes no sense for Bethenny to have met John in Florida, saying that she wanted him to be a part of Bryn’s life. That was ridiculous. You have these horrific memories of him, yet you want Bryn to call him grandpa?? Makes no sense.

    My heart did break for her in the store with Carole. But bottom line, shared custody means just that. Jason, who disgusts me to no end now, deserves to have his daughter half the time.

    • Powell says:

      Hey Miss Sue. I’m enjoying NY too.

      And I don’t mind Kristen at all. I think we need one bulb that doesn’t shine as bright.

      What I found crazy is B telling Amador that her childhood was kinda normal? She didn’t feel anything about it just that she lived it? Amador got it out of her. You’re 5 and you witnessed your mom get her behind best, drug by her hair and then you hear them having sex after the fighting, you have some kind of feeling about it as an adult woman. She finally cracked that part of her mind open.

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

        …… at 40+ years old……. revolutionary ……… 🙄

        everyone has issues, everyone grew up with $hit, there’s varying degrees i GET THAT… but why wait so long until you’re spotlighting ⭐ to delve. shameless#

        • Have we seen an episode in which “not wearing my life on my sleeve” Bethenny hasn’t been weeping over her life? If we have, it’s when she is coming off as vindictive, controlling, and demanding, not to mention just plain rude at times. I thought her snapping at the doctor, questioning his ability, was a peek behind the thin mask she wears.

          The shared custody is the issue that has sent Bethenny into “a dark place” IMO. She said in one episode, when talking to Sonja about only having Bryn half the time, that she didn’t expect that. Clearly Bethenny was admitting she thought she’d walk away with Bryn and Jason would be at her mercy. She’s devastated that didn’t happen. Is her ego that out of control?

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

            good call— if we don’t have the thera-weepy 😥 sessions– then we have only B trying to be ‘fun’ with the ladies- and that involved being snappy to Ramona and the Kristen comment (sorry— both snappy and both her projecting—-)–

            20 BUCKS she’s a snappy sore mess next week with her ‘surpriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiise’ in the Berks, a la Jill in the horn voice coming to Scary Island…… she’ll be so annoyed with the ‘drama there!!!!!’ Bit$h why YOU BACK ON THIS SHOW!? You know how this works. UGHHHH I JUST CAN’T with that. i can’t.

            And WTG– in answer to your last sentence– is the pope catholic!?!! NATURALLY! 😮

          • plainviewsue says:

            I agree on that “not wearing my life on my sleeve” comment. I am a Bethenny fan, but it is getting tired and old. Yes Bethenny. Since the very first episode of RHONY that is exactly what you have done. You let us know you were raised by wolves. You let us know what a horrible mother you had. You let us know what you want us to know. I actually liked when John said to her a lot of people of had very difficult childhoods and have moved on. Then she started yelling at him that this was her story. Yes it is Bethenny. But you clearly need a new therapist. She is as tightly wound as she ever was. Breathe girl. Breathe!!

            • Thanks for that. Because I sometimes wonder if I’m on the KellyTrain when watching these shows. Like this episode when Bethenny said, “I never cry….” What?! #MelookingaroundtoseeifIamdreaming

    • ramonacoaster says:

      I like the season too. I was hoping for better ratings. Carole’s skit on running for election was funny especially the Shepard Fairey Hope Obama posters of Carole. The two women, Kristen and Heather, that are actual ‘housewives’ don’t seem to have much of a storyline so far. The single women’s dating lives seem to be getting more attention.

    • Oh gosh, well said–except for the hating Jason part, which is mostly because I think the public has only heard Bethenny’s side of that story, over and over and every. single. time. she’s on camera, and they hate him based on that.

      I so agree on the question of why she wants Bryn to know her stepfather, whom she basically depicts as a monster, and he didn’t dispute what she said, so…why?

      • Ummm…dunno…ratings?

        • Well, that could be it. She’s apparently run her bus over her father, stepfather, mother, and Jason to get them, at one point or the other in her TV life..

      • floridagirl88 says:

        Notably, Jason isn’t selling his version of the story to the public so we don’t know the whole story. I am one of the few people that still likes the man and especially his parents. Those grandparents are Bryn’s best chance of normalcy. Bethenny is sure to ruin that child’s life with all her issues and drama, but the biological grandparents can counter her foolishness. And yes, while in the he## would Bethenny want her stepfather to be a participating grandparent? Makes no sense.

        • RabbleRouser says:

          I still like Jason too- and his parents.

          If think if the shoe were on the other foot and Bethenny got her hooks into a millionaire who made the buik of his money while they were together and she was making sacrifices for him, viewers would want her to get a fair shake instead of just the shirt on her back, when it ended.

          I think Bethenny is completely neurotic and manic and I find her very hard to swallow.

          I can remember how she treated Jason’s parent’s like they were beneath her and like they were some sort of country bumpkin’s..when I think in reality she was deeply threatened by them. Bethenny doesn’t know how to navigate in calm seas.

        • I plus have completely agreed with you until the latest judge ruling where it came out that Jason and his mother took advantage of her.

          I’m on the fence.

          • I believe that “report” was quite a bit biased and sensationalized through artful editing.

            Shocking to imagine, I know, with a tabloid.

            I am quite jaded to media gossip, so I read carefully. I need to see the actual court filings in question and judgments. From what is filed in a suit as an allegation to what is proven by a preponderance of the evidence and which the judge uses as the basis for a judgment, there can be a huge gap.

            For example: from what I read, obscured in the article, the actual documents “notarized” by Jason’s mother were in fact for Power of Attorney in case either spouse was unable to make legal decisions, as in a coma or brain dead, etc. My hubs and I have these. In many states, anyone can witness that document, just like a will. Neither legally requires a notarized signature, though if later disputed in court, it can be prudent. So perhaps Mrs. Hoppy erred in signing as a notary, instead of just as a witness FOR THAT ONE DOCUMENT? That’s a lot different than the implication in the article that somehow Mrs. Hoppy had illegally notarized documents that would have some bearing on the actual real estate trust claim. She may have, but nothing in the article supported that other than twisting the allegations to appear to be related.

            I have not seen actual evidence of the accusation of an attempt to defraud Bethenny out of the apartment, either. The judgment as partially quoted did not say that either party intentionally attempted to defraud the other, but that there were questions about the lawyer’s legal witnessing of the trust signatures, as I remember it–though it was not clear in the article at all. That was a very choppy “read” on the issue; it did not make a lot of sense without further explanation. For example, who referred this unnamed lawyer to the Hoppys? If Bethenny didn’t want to sign the document, why did she? Why is it Jason’s fault if Bethenny now claims not to have read it? She could be lying, and with all her claims of “business skill” that is highly suspect. She had a pre-nup, remember? Did she not bother with her own lawyer over a $5 million property deal she intended to keep as hers and not “theirs”?

            Then there is the implication in the article that she doesn’t even remember signing trust documents. If she’s accusing Jason of forgery, why doesn’t she have him arrested? Is there a handwriting analysis of this signature? Why wouldn’t she have that done before she makes public accusations against him like this? I repeat, this is Bryn’s father.

            Bethenny has herself said she didn’t know she would have to share custody when she ended the marriage. She’s angry and bitter that she lost full custody. She wants Jason to cease to have any rights or existence so she can have everything just as she wants it.

            I have many questions about her mental health after her latest episode with her stepfather. She has a love/hate relationship with men, IMO. She dates, but she said she has issues with having sex with men because of the abuse of her mother she witnessed. How does that work in a marriage? Is that Jason’s fault, too?

            I don’t think Bethenny should be on TV at all, airing all her issues. She’s really a destructive person–as we saw witnessed by her therapist for doing his job, which she asked of him.

            In reality, she has taken Jason for a terrible ride starring in “Bethenny: The Lifetime Movie.” He will have to deal with her bullish demands and public slanders for the rest of his life. I don’t see how anyone can believe that’s all his fault.

          • floridagirl88 says:

            Yeah, me, too. I like Jason and his parents. If the latest news is found to be true, then I am greatly disappointed in them. The thing is, Bethenny tells everything and Jason plays his cards close to his chest so we never hear from him. Also, Bethenny can’t claim to be a savvy businesswoman on one hand, negotiating (with Jason’s help and lawyers) and claim to have been duped by the same people. Something doesn’t add up so we have to wait to see if the truth gets revealed.

    • Stars99 says:

    THERAPYSESH sessions again???
    This is really really too much. To quote that misogynistic jacka$$ on shahs- Bit*H you had birkins and an apartment on the UES for years when you were “POOR” but you could not afford a good true therapist until you woopsie woopsie 🙄 got preggers? #IDIOT#
    no kudos to you. If you had brains you would have worked on these issues years ago. You’re not a young little chickie.

    Going to read the NY recap but re: Kathy Hilton—– what was up with that? Did her account get ‘hacked’ or something???? Maybe someone not invited to the wedding or some ‘help’ at her house hijacked her phone or something????? What happened there? And are those deleted???

    Happy humping day~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    • msdc says:

      Bethenny wasn’t wealthy and didn’t have the success she does today until after she was married. The Birkins and the UES apartment came after she was married and had Brynn. Right now, Jason is enjoying that apartment and is doing so because he ran a scam on his wife.

      Some people try to deal with it on their own, can’t afford the help needed, or may not even realize the depth of their issues until a certain significant event or events bring them to the surface, i.e. getting married, having a baby. It certainly isn’t a matter of “not having a brain” nor does it have anything to do with a person’s age.

      Regardless, Bethenny’s discussion with her stepfather obviously brought up things that hit her in the gut and I wouldn’t blame anyone for shedding some tears over hearing the extremely hurtful words she did. Actually, I rarely judge anyone for anything that may bring on their tears. IMO, Bethenny has minimized what happened to her as a child. In fact there are many who claim or possibly discovered through therapy that they’ve been detrimentally effected much deeper by much less. Whether we like it or not, such experiences do effect who we become in some way, whether it’s positive, negative or both.

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

        Msdc – sorry I don’t know how I didn’t see your comment yesterday – Beth had the apt blocks away from Jill during seasons 1 and 2 when with jason 1 and also when single. That is where she took the pregnancy test /// re- filmed a “take” for the camera with the bathroom door open — she always had that apt.

        When pregnant and after getting engaged they moved downtown.

        I’m a big proponent of therapy and a big empathizer of someone if they **earnestly** cry at something.
        Just not every single filming episode of a show you were once too good for.
        And find a therapist on the DL, not on camera, and who does better work with you.
        She’s been an open book since season 1 – no reason a knowledgeable therapist wouldn’t want to get to the gist MUCH earlier.

        • I have renamed the RHONYC. It’s now “Bethenny: The Lifetime Movie.”

        • msdc says:

          No problem chismosa. I didn’t realize her first apt was UES and I thought she rented. Not that it matters much, my point was she didn’t have the type of money the others did or even close. Really it comes down to liking Bethenny vs. not liking her. Each of us overlooks things or even looks at them differently when we like someone and if we don’t like them, a molehill becomes a mountain. I may have also misunderstood you – I took it that you were generalizing when you said she should have worked on the issues years ago, that she wasn’t young. If that’s the case, hopefully my points make more sense to you?

          I don’t let much get to me but when it does, I compartmentalize it, lock it away. I’m of the opinion that no one can hurt you unless you let them. There’s a downside to that way of thinking so I can’t help but be intrigued by those who wear their heart on their sleeve. I say live and let live, we’re all different and deal with things differently. Unless someone is completely narcissistic and/or hurtful, deceitful, etc. (Kim, Brandi quickly come to mind ;-)), then screw it – I’m going to judge. I’m a typical gemini in that I’m very open minded and do try to see everyone’s point of view and often times I truly can. Sorry if I’m spewing too much in this paragraph.

          Anyway, I do get what you’re saying, but I still like Bethenny anyway. 😉

    • Bethenny is dividing the show into two parts: the RHNYC part, and the Bethenny Getting Divorced part.

      I have told myself to stop commenting on this, but it’s sucking all the air out of this show–at least, for me. The other women’s storylines are falling by the wayside of Bethenny’s melodramatic, weeping, blaming, victimized, poor-me scenes. I know some don’t see that, but it is what I see. She’s psychologically decompensating and it’s not enjoyable to watch.

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

        that’s what it feels like …. like Bethenny Forever on Bravo Ever After and Forever After That….. part deux and that uncomfortable season of her spinoff— and then you see the other ladies and fun stuff.

        i can’t appreciate Bethenny rekindling any friendship with Ramona or Sonja or even Luann because there’s so many other FREAKIN women on the cast that have already supplanted that friendship. Especially with the dealings with LEG. ha ha!
        it’s just…. a bit much….. but i guess this was the re-entry to Bravo that they all agreed on for B to come back on her jock on to the network.

        • I was really enjoying the other women last year, and looking forward to Ramona’s divorce storyline, which is very interesting, IMO. I also couldn’t wait to see them all without the baggage of Leg and her dad, Perv.

          Now, it’s too disjointed and the others are being ditched for Beth’s bitter solo agenda: sell her products and demonize Jason.

          At this point, the only reason I’m watching is habit. And for the blogs and discussion.

          I think I need a therapist. O_o

    Awesome Blog, ALL of the bloggers are great if I don’t say so daily, know I think what you all do is just amazeballs! OldcraggyBitchdrunkRamona just FESS up, she is still bangin her ex-husband, sorry but we all have THAT friend that cannot get over their ex, and they do nice things for them, bring them dinner, take their BOOTY calls, etc. I don’t think that she would even be divorcing him had this all not played out in the press, because again, she had forgiven him before. DrunkDelusioalGreyGardensSonja thankfully was NOT this episode much, she clearly does not understand “business” and she should probably STOP trying. If you want to do PR then do PR, get an agency hire interns for free labor and promote this business, oops, she already did that and NO one wants to hire her, why because she is not that great at PR. First off, you can’t be drunk dancing on tables with a lampshade on your head(old timey drunk reference), and be at a paying gig promoting someone else. She Clearly does not want to actually “work” for a living, well neither do I, and neither does most of the planet, but unfortunately we have to. She had a taste of the good life, and cannot get her head wrapped around the fact she no longer “lives” in that realm. If you want to do PR and have a business, stop drinking, stop posting pictures of you naked in a bathtub as some sort of promotion of your business, unless “madame” is the business you are going for. StHeatheroftheT is the DebbieDowner of the season this year, good grief, can she have ONE nice thing to say about anything and she is pissed if she isn’t acknowledged as her Lordship this season, UGH. Aaaa CountlessLumanDeLeHubcaps, reminds us of her SnakeySelf this episode, she tried to fool us for a few episodes, but yep, snakey is still in her. Dorinda, kinda like you, like your snarkyiness but good grief, your taste in a male partner is appalling, but I wonder if she has chosen someone so unlikeable to be with, so she won’t fall in love with him, since she has had her heart broken twice already, you know self-sabotage. Uhm Kristen-Who and why is she still on this show. Not going to go into the BethennyBallbuster things, I like her you all know I do, enough said, I did find her interactions with Carole Completely amusing, and I believe they are actually kind of friends now that filming is over.

    • mrs peabody says:

      it seems heather is just not in a good mood this season and if her bestie becomes besties with Bethenny she’s going to be in a worse mood.

      • T-Rex says:

        I get it St.HeatheroftheTWear was the BHOC(big ho-wife on campus) for the NY crowd, she had a business, MzAndy stuck it to THeLunatic to hire someone with a REAL shapewear company, she would for P Diddy’s company, she has a great business sense, and SHE thought she was witty. First season we all seemed to be on the fence about her, but her second season we warmed up, and now for godsakes take the witchesbroom out your keister woman! Look BethennyBallBuster is quicker than you on the quips and anecdotes, do not try to keep up, frankly please don’t because we don’t need TWO BethennyBallBusters, look I like her and even I couldn’t take two motor mouths. You should play the straight man to her schtick, that might be amusing, but this trying to keep up nonsense is ridiculous, and she is coming off badly due to this. Seriously, an entire BitchFest on how Delusional, Crazy and a guess of how many and what drugs DrunkDelusionalGreyGardensSonja is taking between those two would be HILARIOUS!

    wait, the stapler user applicant wrote TINDER on her application!!!!???!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG i have to rewatch that! That scene was the best of the night. I loved Ramona and her partner-guy.

    Reading your recap — STARS- hysterical—- the “hip” tattoo– i mean Holla- a tattoo! gross!!! Carole and the childcare— LOLOLOLOLOOLOL.

    i’ve decided what makes this kind of icky— perhaps? Is it the introduction of the therapy sessions? If that wasn’t in the episodes- and it was just fun shopping, the occasional breaking into tears (dear god, ENOUGH)– would it have been easier to take?
    I wonder…..

    I’m still confused as to the Luann/ Ramona/ Dor convo— who called who—- Dorinda called Luann to complain about Ramona? So confusing.
    And why was it the ‘speech to talk to Ramona about herself’ by Lu and Holla? STFU – the night was for Dorinda so give me a break. ughhhhhh……………………..
    When the countLess wants to act as ‘hostess’ of something, she jumps on it full steam ahead.

    Dor’s home looks gorgeous in the Berks- i love stucco/ light colored tudor– beautiful…….

  11. Powell says:

    It’s unfortunate that Kim did this and I hope she realizes she needs help and commits to it. I also hope the Hilton/Richards clan see that viewers, no fans, non-fans, Twitter, FB, instagram or media outlet caused this relapse. According to Kim social media made her drink 2 inches of vodka at Brooke’s and then her drive to the Polo, sit in her booth that she’s been sitting at since she was 6 and drink at the bar, the bar, the bar, the bar.

    • T-Rex says:

      Her family is WELL aware that her drinking isn’t caused by anything other than DrugAddict/AlcoholicKim is an ALCOHOLIC and a DRUG ADDICT, who at this point in her life does not choose to be sober, and makes excuse after excuse, after excuse as to why she drinks/drugs. Her children have lived with it and heard it for their whole lives. She has yet to hit bottom, she clearly is not interested in an intervention, nor a sober program at all. I think those 911 tweets from KruellaKathy had to do with DrugAddict/AlcoholicKim using at the wedding. My take, and this is pure speculation, is that she contacted Monty because she was high/drunk and wanted to chat with him and tell him about the day, and he realized she was “hammered”. Monty has been living with KruellaKathy and her husband for almost a year, so I am SURE he let KruellaKathy know “Houston we have a problem” and the calls and tweets flew to find her. OR Monty was contacted by their daughter that Mom has flown over the proverbial cuckoo’s nest and “lost her shit” at the wedding. Everyone has been pretty much “radio silent” regarding where DrugAddict/AlcoholicKim is at this point. I am hoping someone kidnapped her and she is at Hazeldon/Betty Ford, and not slumming the streets of Mexico looking for drugs.

      • ITA with you.

        Speculating that the “sober coach” was the one that contacted Kathy and that’s why she freaked out and sent the text- but your educated guess is as good mine…

      • lila1star says:

        Wow–gone one day and come back to yet more of “As Kim’s World Turns”. Dang who didn’t see this coming–we all did right? Kim is a mean drunk and to go after Brooke right after the wedding is just mind boggling. In all the reports they say Kim was off the wagon–she was a mess but no one knew exactly what she was on as they didn’t see it. In a BR, in a BR, in a BR! Her favorite place–ok I should not be snarky about this–it is really sad and I fear the worst.

        I get angry at the people that continue to allow her to play games with them–I know they can not stop her but they do not have to play. A living center with out the detox and rehab first? Bravo milking this for years as someone said–Kim has never been sober. The list goes on.

    Great blog Starz!! too too funny! Heather – she annoyed me this episode more so than usual – between her comments at Sonja’s event – condescending remarks trying to be passed off as a compliment – just congratulate Sonja, wish her well and grab an appitizer and a glass of something – LET IT GO – same thing at the hosted dinner when Ramona went off the rails – this was a party for Dorinda – a toast was made – not a great one, but all that was required was a “hear hear” and a clink of glasses – not the nonsense that ensued – Lu should have left Ramona out of the toast, Ramona should have just said thank you and Heather should have not said anything other than something nice – always with the push back that one – enough – as for Bethenny and Heather – I completely get where Bethenny is coming from – she barely knows Heather – I wouldn’t discuss something so personal with a casual acquaintance either – especially if it might affect the outcome of the case – keep it neutral – I can kind of understand Ramona continuing to “see” Mario – this has been her way of life for a very long time – she is divorcing not just from Mario, but from a way of life she knows – one that is home to her heart – not easy at all – that said, Mario is a cheating snake and she is well rid of him – despite the absolute hurt that it must cost her –

    why did Carole want to be on the board? is she planning on participating, or was it just something to compete for and say she won? she does not seem like the board member type to me –

    as for B crying in the store with Carole – I think she may have just felt a bit overwhelmed at people assuming that she would put her time with Brynn second when it came to social events – I don’t blame her for not wanting to take Brynn with her to the Bershires – that takes Brynn out of her routine and as that child is already being shuttled back and forth between she and Jason, it might not be easy on Brynn – for that matter, perhaps she cannot travel with Brynn like that due to court restrictions – add to that everyone making assumptions as to why she would not go without evemn knowing her that well, let alone the specifics of her situation, I can understand her being on overload – I thought Carole handled it well – still don’t care for her though..

    • mrs peabody says:

      I think sometimes you just need a good cry when everything is overwhelming you and I think it was Bethenny’s time. Most people have family that always have your back and that you can turn to in times like these, I can’t imagine what it must be like for someone like Bethenny who really doesn’t. It’s gotta be hard and I think it just all came out to her. Carole may have been just what she needed at that moment. As far as Heather pumping her, it’s none of Heather’s business and I like Bethenny would not discuss my private affairs with her.

      • Stars99 says:

      Thanks, Shamrock… Yeah… this was an odd episode for a lot of reasons, no? But I really do like this season… I get the sense that Bethenny forgot how crazy it is being on this reality show… I don’t think she was prepared for it. I dunno…. I think she risks a level of vulnerability the others don’t risk… Or maybe they can’t because of agreements they have with others involved in their dark corners (exes, etc.)…

        I think LuAnn just needed to be important/relevant. They said early on that she and Dorinda knew each other, but I think it was a Bravo hosted event, it gave Lu and Ramona a reason to get into it (it was coming, don’t you think?) and a reason to start a war. I don’t think the Heather/Bethany war is alone going to carry the show.

    Okay we all have to PRAY for Kit9 that her head does not explode and that there really IS ENOUGH bleach in the ENTIRE world for her to use after this next Podcrap from THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONGSTFUBrandi. on a SIDE note, Yolo-Lymonhead must be OH so proud her husband got a shout out~

    Great bog Starzy! I actually watched this one this morning, and the WWHL thingie. I’m liking Dorinda. I’m not really not liking any of them.

    And Orson, this is for you and KatieCat 🙂

    • FattyCat says:

      Yes, you must have at least two cats (I have three indoor and one outdoor). I like Dorinda too so far ladebra, she seems very no nonsense, the rest, I grow tired…

      • ladebra says:

        Hi FC! I have a deal with my kitty, no more kitties 🙂 She is Queen of the Casa after 8 years of being terrorized by my OG kitty. They just did not play well together. 😜

    • Orson says:

      We have told Katie that we think she’s lonely and that we’re thinking of getting 2 frisky and playful kittens AND a very friendly puppy to keep her company. We often talk about getting her companions when she can hear us. And during her quarterly performance reviews.

      On a more serious note, considering Roomie acquired Katie after Katie literally tore apart her longtime feline housemate. I don’t see a second feline here happening.

      • Barb (Just wondering in Jersey) says:

        Just read your note after I posted. Il you are right it may be a better idea to keep her alone.

      • ladebra says:

        Quarterly performance reviews! LOL ….. She’s so patient letting you guys think you actually have a say in KatieWorkd 🙂

    • Barb (Just wondering in Jersey) says:

      It may have been meant for Orson but I had to look! I loved and laughed. 😀

    • Stars99 says:

      Thanks, ladebra, my neighbor! Glad you were able to watch! I like Dorinda, too… It cracked me up that she immediately had Ramona’s number.. It must be hard to date someone that your friends don’t like…

    re: WWHL with Andy and B both kind of yelling at eachother and Andy twisting answers around – (so funny to watch)

    It enlightened me on Lisa Rinna’s indebtedness to Bethenny so much, like she was at Bethenny’s finale show- it was like over the top to me, at the time. B essentially got Andy to have Lisa on BH.

    Beth very clearly had to emphasize ⭐ “BRIEFLY” of her connection to JZ season 1. Ha.
    Excel line 53, column B. of friendshipslost.xls

    I don’t find Brandi polarizing. I think that’s why Andy stumbled to agree with Bethenny on that. She’s not.
    I truly don’t think she fits the definition. People like to throw that word around a lot. Polarizing fits a lot of other HWs and people in general- but Brandi i think turned that page a while ago, no?

    • I was hoping Andy’s fumbling both times Brandi was mentioned was because she is not coming back….hope springs eternal. I wish Beth could have shut up for a minute cuz it looked like Andy was ready and willing to spill but she kept talking over him, “Me, me, me, blah, blah, me.”….errrr

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Agree Pindy – she just couldn’t get out of her own way when asking the questions. Andy certainly had more to say.

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

        completely agree with you and Husker—–
        And when i saw that logo the graphics department made of “BETHENNY ⭐ ⭐ TAKES ON WWH” or whatever it said….. i was like, oh jeeeeze- is she going to be like Andy’s replacement on his days off or something? When he jets off to Brazil 2x a year or is busy doing his radio show???

        Like, a trial night-show for her to have, a la Kathy Griffin had on E? Lord, please no (prayer hands). (VV’s vomiting moving emoji)

        Andy seemed to want to talk, i caught him being like ‘um, yeah….’ when she would say something… and then fumble to see what to say back because she kept butting in.

    • Quick fly by before I get back to my work project. How can you say Square Jaw isn’t polarizing? You have seen your lengthy posts every time she is on right? If she wasn’t polarizing I doubt you would what you do to. I am still trying to figure out if you and WTG are in the love to hate or hate to hate zone with Square Jaw.

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

        Hi SJP – I do what I do to —- skeletor? Bethenny ?
        I said I don’t think Brandi is polarizing – not Bethenny.

        People love the word polarizing. It’s the new “couture” 🙄
        😂😩

        • My bad, I will try to learn to read!

          You are right I don’t find Brandi polarizing any more, once upon a time, yes, but no longer. Square Jaw – very polarizing judging by it seems about split on those that love her and those that hate her. She is definitely sparking conversations.

  19. HuskerHuny says:

    I don’t get why Heather asking Sonja if her line would be in Kmart was such an insult? Some celebrities who have or have had lines at Kmart include Jaclyn Smith (who made millions), Nicki Minaj, Adam Levine, Kathy Ireland and Martha Stewart, to name a few. Sonja should be drooling at the mouth to make the money these people have in poor little ol’ Kmart. And can we just say for the record, this women has yet to produce any kind of any thing and it’s almost June 1. So much for her spring 2015 and summer 2015 lines. One dress does not a line make as Heather said. She should be so lucky if Kmart came calling. But, for what it’s worth, 99 percent of the people who shop at Kmart have no idea who Sonja Morgan is and really could care less. The saga continues . . . I wonder if the sun is shining in Sonja’s world today . . .

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Excuse me . . . could NOT care less. I just did one of the things that makes me mad when others do it! Shame on me!

    • T-Rex says:

      HH the fact of the matter is that DrunkDelusionalGreyGardensSonja has ZERO ZILCHO NONE NADA business sense. She apparently thinks that Nordstroms or Bergdorfs would pickup her line, uhm even the most ESTEEMED designers have to work to get in those stores. She should have gone to Target(called it Tarrrr-Jay), even Lilly Pulitzer sold her line there and made a freakin fortune. She could have had a paycheck or a stipend for putting her name on the fake clothing line. She will be the SheBySherreeaintgotnoMonay, of the NY Ho-wives unfortunately. She doesn’t see the forest for the damned trees. With Tar-Jay she could have done and been paid to do a boatload of commercials and print ads for the line, she could have been the Lady Morgan of TarJay, for petesake. See she is also TERRIBLE at PR, on top of business. She wants to drink in a bar in a bar in a bar, and hobnob with the rich and famous and drink more and swing from the chandeliers and be the center of attention, but she isn’t 25, now she is middle aged drunk cougar that the ladies who lunch snicker at, she will never be a part of the high society she longs for, but that is her own fault

    • kit9 says:

      I don’t think it was an insult either, at all. There are tons of examples of designers/lifestyle brands partnering with huge retail chains like Target, etc. It’s a trend right now more than ever. Sonja would be so lucky. It was a very legit question.

  20. Great blog Stars, as always!! Romona is such a bitch, lol, Luann fell for it and talked “privately, between us girls” and Ramona busted her and twisted it….omg, so declasse’! Heather is over Sonja’s shit and is being mean. Beth…I can understand the “isn’t everyone growing up in a crazy situation” attitude. It wasn’t until I was in HS that I realized that other houses were peaceful and families were actually nice to one another….it wasn’t survival of the fittest and dinnertime wasn’t a time to see who could be the most sarcastic and cleverly mean and cutting…who knew???? And then the shit that went on during the divorce, I didn’t even get to process that until my late 30s…. You just file it away so that you can deal with life as it is happening. It isn’t until the file cabinet starts having leaks that you look at the file folders….as it were…and see what folders you can deal with and toss/shred. And some files remain untouched for decades or never opened for some people…. I personally would not go on TV and show my files to the world, lol! #topsecret #formyeyesonly #lookatmedontlookatme

    • Trashy T says:

      Well said, PP.

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

      princess, you know i love you more than my luggage. 😉
      You are completely completely compleeeeeeeeeeeeeetely right, and i don’t think for ANY reason that people shouldn’t work on their ISSUES. But …. why didn’t Bethenny who is so self-aware as a person, since she wanted to do her ‘real’ therapy on air, at least do some when single? I don’t know- in nyc it’s anathema to NOT have a therapist- lol…. – i just don’t get it. For someone so neurotic i’m shocked any of her (very few) friends who knew her story from whence she was young did not tell her to get into therapy.

      I feel some things she thinks for some reason will endear her so much to the audience in her transition back to the viewers…but i don’t know, it’s a bit much.
      But yes, she should be in therapy and i GET figuring out later in life. I just think with the world she’s surrounded herself in the past decade or so- she’d have thought to do it earlier. ehhhh who knows.

      I would just love an episode without her being snappy and no tears. #toomuchtoask

      I mean how can Ramona of all people not be tearing up every single episode!

      look at me don’t look at me- made me LOL

      • Maybe she has gotten therapy before…I have a hard time thinking this is her first rodeo in the therapy dept… Has she said this is her first time in therapy? I don’t enjoy watching her in therapy, I would rather watch paint dry. She might not have gotten to her Mommy issues until now…who knows, who cares, not me, lol.

    • Stars99 says:

      Thanks, Tiara… Yeah… It must be tough to be in the public eye knowing there are lots of folders hanging around… I think i’m uncomfortable with Bethenny dealing with her folders on TV… I think great progress is being made… But she’s so raw and vulnerable without much support even now. I just want to give her a cloth napkin and a cookie. We’ll hug sometime in the future – after she and Carole hug, first.

  21. Trashy T says:

    I actually enjoy Bethenny’s sessions with Dr. Amador. I really appreciate that he makes her dig for what she is really feeling. In his own quiet way, I think he is very good with her. I like Bethenny very much. I know she has her flaws and I don’t always agree with what she says or does, but I appreciate her, her drive, and her raw emotions. I don’t think there is anything wrong with being her age and still struggling with feelings. And having money doesn’t solve your problems… in this case, with Jason, it only increased them. I thought Jason was captured several times on their show really delivering some low blows to Bethenny, in opposition to what most everyone perceived as his “nice guy” persona. I’m sure she was difficult, but I don’t think he was a walk in the park. If anyone recalls the testimony she gave in court about Jason and his dad walking around in their underwear in their old apartment and not flushing the toilets while it was also Bethenny’s home and place of business, it put that family in a whole different light to me. Also, the story of Jason’s mother misusing her profession on the trust documents really sealed the deal as far as I was concerned.

    • Trashy T says:

      Also, was in Malibu over the weekend and looking in vain for YoFo’s home…. we were in the Zuma Beach area and I have a feeling that it is located further south. Anyway, could anyone help with a clue as to its location. I’m headed that way again towards the end of June and my trashy side just wants to get a hankering of where it is. Thank you so much if you can help.

      • It is further south, Zuma is the beach I use to go to in HS…Tower 7!!! HOLLA!!!

        • TrashyT says:

          I’ll check out Tower 7 for you. Was surprised beaches weren’t that busy over the weekend but it was only in the mid 60s. You were so lucky to live near there. What a gorgeous area.

      • T-Rex says:

        TrashyT you should have posted you were looking for the info I have the address for you, LOL! Would have loved if you could have gone by and given us the 411, LOL

        • TrashyT says:

          I’m going to be back there at the middle of June so I’ll write in advance so I can get the address and report back.

    • Stars99 says:

      I’m so glad you said that, Trashy T… I think you’re absolutely right – that the Dr. is very good with her. I think the fact that Bethenny is functioning at all at this point is success. Truly.

  22. Butters'Mom says:

    I thought I sent this earlier but it looks like it didn’t go through or something. So this is roughly what I thought I had posted earlier.

    I am actually loving RHONY this year. I’ve always liked B but she does grate a bit when she is being really harsh. I really like Dorinda. Her reactions to things are very normal WTF. I think Heather is mad because she thought she and Carol would be Head Biotches in Charge this year but B steals the show focus.

    Wedding update: my Dad who I love and adore beyond all reason was just given 6 months to live. #FUcancer. Butter’sDad and I decided to move up the wedding as I cannot imagine getting married without my dad there. The vendors I had deposits with have been wonderful but it has been stressful having to juggle availabilities of caterers, photographer, church/hall availability, when the dress will be done, family vacations, etc. We are now rescheduled for June 19 This was supposed to be a happy, fun and exciting time for me but it has turned into the most stressful nightmare. I now cry randomly. Dropped a jar of sauce in Target the other day and couldn’t stop crying. The Target ladies think I’m insane. My escape is the housewives and this blog. Thank you all for being here.

    The ugly Wishing Well we joked about a few weeks ago is now the least of my problems. If one more person complains about the wedding being on a Friday and having to take some time off work I may shoot them. (talkin’ about you baby sister)

    Love you guys and I miss Lynn.

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

      Oh my lord, Butters’ —- my condolences on all this mess!

      And how dare people be upset with this move— your SISTER?????!!!! o_O — WHAT!?
      don’t they understand? A friday is not a big deal—- people actually get married on Thursdays and mondays if you can believe it.

      I’m so sorry you are feeling like this— and to have us analyzing Kim Richards’ crap and her ex-husband can’t be fun to hear.
      My apologies. Try to have as best a time you can …… it’s supposed to be a wonderful thing for you guys, i’m sad that it’s not being that way. 😦

      Hugs to you XX

    • Oh Butters’Mom.

      So happy you’re getting married but so bittersweet. Please take care of yourself.
      I know the Target ladies love you. We love you. I love you.

      I miss Lynn too. So so much.

      What’s a wedding without some random gunfire? Just between friends…I’m sure it’s good luck somewhere.

      Sigh. Sending you lotsa love.

    • plainviewsue says:

      Oh my god, that is so horrible to hear. It’s so great that the venders have been so cooperative. Stay strong~

    • ((((Butter’sMom)))) I am so sorry that you are having to go thru this. I am so glad we can take your mind off of it all. I am positive that Target ladies have seen worse!! Be good to yourself!!

    • T-Rex says:

      Butters, sending you tons of HUGS< and yes FU Cancer!!! My brother and sister in law got married on a Friday, and they also said screw you to those that were complaining about the date, uhm oh well, this is YOUR DAY they can suck it! LOL! They had a lovely wedding and so will you. I should say that on our wedding videotape just after we got married and we were awaiting our entrance to the reception is me saying, "It's finally F***ng over", yeah, I was a bit stressed up until the day of the wedding. We had a bit of last minute Snafus, but you know what, it was worth it, and I didn't care if no one like the service, the reception, or anything. It was our day, we got married and that's that. I hope Things go so awesomely well for you and Mr Butters!!

    • California35 says:

      I’m so sorry Butters’Mom 😞 about your dad, the change of plans, your tears, insensitive people around you. Hang in there, and try to look at the good part of it, if/when you can’t here we are.

    • Stars99 says:

      My heart goes out to you, Butters’ Mom… You are dealing with so many things on so many levels… May you feel peace through it all – even when things get even crazier. May you have the wisdom to know what to say and what not to say… and what to do and what not to do. May you feel a wealth of support surging around you.

    • SoutheastVA says:

      Butter’s Mom – I’m keeping you and your dad in my prayers. Congrats on the upcoming wedding. Don’t let others rain on your day. ((Hugs))

    • RabbleRouser says:

      I am so sorry about your Dad, I know first hand what a devastating blow a terminal dx of a loved on is like and I think you are doing remarkably well. Honey, if you want to cry over a bottle of dropped pasta sauce- do it. Because in so many other ways you are holding it together and holding it down.

      Weddings are stressful enough to begin with, yet you have managed not only to plan a wedding but to make drastic changes to it under such unfortunate circumstances.

      I also got married on a Friday- and I can’t think of a better way to start a weekend right 🙂

    • DesignerNailsDiana says:

      Oh dear Butters’ I’m so sad to hear this news.
      I will be saying extra prayers for you and your dad as you lead up to the wedding. I was married on a Wednesday and it was great. Friday’s are the best for a wedding as the rest of the guests have the entire weekend kicked off with a bright event.
      What do you need me to do for you??
      Blessings,
      Diana

      Everyone expressed themselves so eloquently Butter’s Mom. Our thoughts are with you. May you find all the joy you can at this time. Come here to vent whenever cuz we will all be supporting you.

      I still can’t believe Lynn is gone and I’m ever grateful for everyone who keeps this spot chugging along. And thanks especially to Veena and the original TT who always come thru when I screw up and do something stupid when I post.

  24. California35 says:

    Stars99 THANKS for the blog and your additions to it. I liked that you posted what the ladies are going through or have gone through, to keep in mind. Im glad you cleaned your desk too 😛

    I have not watched Bravo and therefore I’ve missed NY, so your recaps are what are keeping me from having a withdrwel. THANK YOU! 😀😀😀

    Hi everyone! 😀👋🏻👋🏻 I’m on “holiday” . Im enjoying every minute if it, its been so long since I’ve taken a vacation. Meeting new people and new lands. I have internet and tv and comforts yes, but the time difrence and enjoying the trip, I am not watching tv and not spending too long on the internet. It is nice to leave the rutine, work, responsabilities, people for a long period of time. I have tried to have a life that is peaceful and happy, to not need a vacation, BUT I still had this trip planned to make up for years of no vacations. Any ways, I do miss my booboo, who if I wanted to bring with me, I would have had to Put her through a lot. She is home with a very good friend of mine and her little dog to play with, so I know she is fine and having a vacation of her own.

    Until next time… California35 from down under.

    • Stars99 says:

      G’day, mate… my neighbor, California35 – So, so GLAD you’re on vacation! Woo hoo! Hope you have way too much fun for words and that you come back feeling renewed and refreshed! So glad you’re not going through withdrawals… lol. 🙂

    • T-Rex says:

      Oh my, Aussie-Awesome to you! One of my BucketList items is to walk over the Sydney Bridge, course I am not a bucketlist level of extreme stuff yet, but if you do it take pics!

    • California35 says:

      Thank you, you too 😊 T-Rex i did not have a bucketlist, didnt think i could have one or didnt want to dream. How things work out that NOW I am thinking about what I would like to do. I got to make a list, I got to work for it, i got to try to make it happen. Even if not all of the things get accomplished, at least get the list and try. The opportunity came up, and I took it 😀. It worked out!! Allways worry about money or fear or others deciding, just doesn’t take me anywhere…any ways, I am happy to have been able to plan and take this vacation.

      I did not do Syney, so no bridge for me. That will be on my bucket list now 😊

    Hi hi hi,..how’s everyone???
    Busy weekend…busy month actually!! So many occasions so many parties!!
    Hope everyone is doing well!
    Great blogs Starzy-I recorded the episode and watched half this morning but read the whole blog anyway!!
    I have become addicted to Entourage-Im on season 6 and can’t stop watching!
    I haven’t had a cigarette in 10 days…none ZERO-not even a Drunky smoke at the many weekend BBQs I attended this past weekend-where EVERYONE seemed to be smoking!! 10 damn days-I haven’t gone that long without a smoke since I was pregnant with Maggie!

    • Way to go with the smokey smokes!!! So proud of you!!!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Thank you-I’m kind of proud myself-I didn’t think I would be able to do it but it’s not as hard as I thought-plus the money I’m saving is adding up and I found the perfect Coach bag to reward myself with when I get 30 days smoke free!!

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

      Jill this is wonderful – congrats !

      Good to friggin SEE YOU HERE AGAIN 😅

      Was ready to put out a BOLO/ APB 🚨🚨🚨

    • California35 says:

      So so so so so happy for you!! And i think it’s great to have that kind of reward. 😀😀

    • TexasTart says:

      Hi Jill! Glad you found the pizza trail, I missed you and I’m thrilled to hear your latest project. I almost asked Exit yesterday, how she was doing with her project and what had she done with you 😛

      Hang in there, stay strong as you have been! I know it’s hard to be around other smokers but at some point that turns into you wish they would quit too, and you know they won’t so you just have to be proud of your accomplishment. Wishing you continued success. ❤

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Thanks for the encouragement!! I’m determined to be an ex smoker!! All of my siblings who have smoked-quit! I was the last hold out! Being around them makes not smoking easier and you all know how much time I spend with them. Everyday it gets a little better and I obsess labout cigarettes less and less-thinking about smoking has replaced actual smoking and I can’t wait till I’m NOT thinking about it ALL THE TIME!!

        I have missed a lot of gossip-WHAT IN THE EFFFFF is going on with Kim? Did her sober person really leave Mexico? Did Kim really cause a scene at the wedding??? It never ends with her!!

        • ladebra says:

          Hey! WTG! I will share what helped me. Someone told me that when that little voice sneaks up with have a cigarette, you just say back Nope, I’m not a smoker. It sounds silly but I put them down after 40 years, and that was 10 years ago. The little voice still tries to sneak up on me once in awhile, and I still answer with Nope, I’m not a smoker. Whatever works! Congratulations!

  26. ONE2WIN says:

    Brandi tweeted this (w a picture) on may 23rd.
    .BrandiGlanville May 23 My great friend Angela Ice with my boyfriend of the moment Dan Roll … Im packing up.., yes maybe moving again .

    Am I missing something here? If she’s moving doesn’t it mean she’s off the show and no more of Bravo paying for her lease? GOD I HOPE SO!!!
    LURKER FROM THE START…LOVE YOU ALL!!!

    • Wait…is this not the real estate agent boyfriend who works with Mauricio? Sorry, too many to remember their names, but she’s been on and off with him “seriously” so many times, I can’t keep up.

      Hard to say about the moving. She gets a new place every year, so…?

      • ONE2WIN says:

        WTG
        No it’s a different guy in picture…Not JD…Hoping someone can move the tweet w picture here. It’s from May 23rd.

        • I don’t know how to do that, but I did find it on her TL and I think she must be posting old photos and that’s what her “moving” reference is? Maybe old pictures she’s going through, because she posts one from her “European” modeling days and of her parents 20 years ago or so?

          She’s not very articulate, so it’s not clear, though. I’m pretty much mind-reading–and that’s a scary place to be with her.

          😮

          • ONE2WIN says:

            OK THANKS…I JUST WANT HER GONE. If she and Kim come back I’m out. I’ll just watch my Lisa V. on V, RULES. LOL

            • California35 says:

              At this point I will watch BH ONLY if Kim and Brandi are gone.
              We have put up with so much with those two. Separately and together.

              • designernailsdiana says:

                I agree. I’m over BH too if those two come back. Kim blew it with her relapse at her daughters wedding. WTG Brooke for being done with her mother until she’s clean and sober!

    • California35 says:

      Yeah, it is an old photo of an old boyfriend.
      Moving doesnt mean Bravo is not paying, remember that she moves every season. 😌

  27. Somewhere on here the subject of Kathy Hilton’s “emergency” tweet over the weekend was brought up again. Whatever was the 911 has been a mystery, but I just saw a TMZ “report” and it may answer that question. What a bizarre story.

    So if you haven’t seen it, TMZ reports Conrad had another meltdown last week: http://www.tmz.com/2015/05/27/conrad-hilton-temporary-restraining-order-suicidal-dangerous-rick-salomon-daughter/

    [If this has already been linked, sorry to repeat. I scanned the comments and didn’t see it.]

      Kathy has her hands full with her own children, her husband and herself. There have been rumors and facts about all of them for a long time (plus all that has been said here). Kim has herself only to worry about, sad that she is thenone that pit HER children through hell.

      • T-Rex says:

        Cali- Yeppers and here is the kicker, VileKyle had been the one taking care of DrugAddictAlcoholicKim for YEARS, not KruellaKathy, then DrugAddictAlcoholicKim decided to be all besties with that asshole THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONSTFUBrandi and “turned” on the ONE sister that was taking care of her. In my opinion it’s one of the many reasons her children called the asshole TOXIC. Because she took away the one person actually looking out for DrugAddictAlcoholicKim . KruellaKathy and Rick are letting Monty live with them, but that’s because they have a staff to help out and Monty actually spends a large amount of time in LasVegas, but other than that he is with the Hiltons. Although KruellaKathy has stepped up her “game” with her sister, it was VileKyle that was really a “support” to her until she decided to crap all over her

        • California35 says:

          Well there you go, she has been elinated everyone. She diesnt see it becasue she is either under the influence or because she is craving it. Because it sounds like she has not been sober or at least not long enough to see her actions are not right. Besides, the entitlement attitude on top of that does NOT help. When she has been “nice” or normal, has been an act.

    With the revelation that Joshua Duggar molested at least 4 out of 5 of his sisters, I may be done with reality TV. If a supposedly nice Christian family has hidden this secret for more than 10 years, what else is reality TV hiding. I will stick to competitive reality shows like MasterChef. I will be coming back for recaps but I am so done with reality TV.

    • T-Rex says:

      LOVE LOVE LOVE Master Chef, however there is a story, that’s kind of “rigged” as well. I don’t think there is any “REAL” reality tv, probably never was. What sickens me about the PedophileDuggar incident is that TLC KNEW KNEW KNEW all about the molestation and STILL put those hypocrites on television and paid them well to be on Television. I never watched the show, my belief system keeps me from the ilk of those types of folks, but Karma is a big ole beyotch! Oh and he didn’t just molest his sisters he also molested, I think now 3 other girls, that have come forward, there could be more.

    • SoutheastVA says:

      Have you seen the BBC Masterchef show. I love it. There’s no fluff about it. It’s just chefs and cooks displaying their skills. The contestants are given a task or recipe that a real chef or great cook should know and they are judged. The are even given recipes from a top notch Michelin caliber chef that they have to reproduce as close as possible. As they move on, the get to showcase their signature dishes. It’s top notch. They don’t let the riffraff even make it on the show. The last season I saw the final 3 contestants had to cook several courses for a ballroom full of Britain’s BEST BEST old school and nouveau chefs. It was their annual conference. They were not palying around. I wish Top Chef was more like this show. I hate the silly challenges they present like cooking from items in a gas station.

    Stars made me laugh. Funny stuff, lady.

  30. TexasTart says:

    Stars, I was reserving comment until I read your blog and sadly that has not happened yet, but know I appreciate you. ❤

    Good morning everyone. Gonna be a beautiful day. My 17 yr old cousin is graduating from H.S. Can’t believe IT!! My baby is growing up. 🙂 I call her my baby because in a round about way I named her. My cousin that graduated from H.S. last yr I gave her her middle name Ciera, which I wanted it to he her 1st name but my cousin wanted Diamond for her 1st name so he chose it for her middle name. Then when my cousin had her baby she gave her the 1st name Sierra. The prom was last Saturday. My mom got to see her dressed but I didn’t. Well I’m waiting for my ticket. I was supposed to get it last night but you know teenagers. Unfortunately everyone can’t attend because they’re aren’t enough tickets. My uncle stopped by this morning and said he’s going but is waiting for his ticket so I told him to pick me up. Lunch later at a restaurant that we’re not sure of the location. We were supposed to get that last night too. My cousin is such a last minute person. Got that from my aunt and uncle. That drives me crazy. I’m not a last minute person. Graduation is at 1:30 on the U of MD campus where I graduated from college.
    WTG your comment about B and Bryn’s child custody. The ladies making comments that B wasn’t attending events, Kristen in specific saying she and Heather got baby sitters or had someone take their l kids to school, was showing no sympathy since they as we know B had issues in court. So of course B will choose being w/Bryn over a social event. IDK why they don’t get that.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Morning Powell and happy graduation to your cousin. Such a happy occasion. I’m having a grandson in October. Please feel free to submit any names you have and I will forward them on to my daughter. I’m scared to death of what she and her husband have come up with . . . are you ready? . . . Jean Luc Tiberius. Yeah, that’s right. Help!

      • Butters'Mom says:

        I love the name Jean Luc Tiberius…but then again I’m a big Star Trek fan. Guessing your daughter or her hubs are too. 🙂

    • I understand B’s choice, as I would make the same one–except this is a job Bethenny has accepted and is being paid to do. I know in my professional life, I would never have dreamed of using my personal problems an excuse for not doing my job. Maybe that’s the issue?

    • And congratulations on your baby’s graduation! Yay!

    • California35 says:

      Kristen and Heather sound to me like the outsiders of the group who comment on the cast mates. In general, not just about Bethenny. But any ways, Bethenny prefers to stay with Bryne and if her boss and contract permits it, the coworkers can sua whatever they want. Knowing that she is still going through hell regarding divorse and bla bla bla….I dont blame her, I believe her and I actually applaud her. Those two with their wonderful hisbands and nannies, can choose to do whayever they want to do with their time. Like get spit and sweat from the boxers they went to see.

  32. Powell says:

    OC 2010. Gretchen and Slade are together. #SlimySlade How many HWs has he been with? I really think if Gretchen was a random girl that wasn’t a HW he wouldn’t have given her the time of day because he was looking for a free ride w/a HW.

    • vilzvet says:

      Powelly you’re reading my mind, I just came here to post that, ARE THEY MARRIED YET? Are they still together? This season is over five years ago.

  33. Powell says:

    OC this was sad when Lynn’s husband lied to her about their financial situation and they were kicked out of their rental property. I think Lynn’s husband told her the home was lease to own, that’s why they Mo ed from their previous home. But it was all lieS.

  34. HuskerHuny says:

    Hi everyone! So glad to be back in my happy place again. I kind of got beat up on a FB message board yesterday. I’m done with it. You guys take such good care of me and even when we disagree, we do it politely. Life’s too short and for that individual who ripped on me, you are in my prayers and please seek help immediately.

    Did you catch Ryan’s proposal last night on MDLNY? How sweet was that, not to mention how much it must have cost him. I think Fredrick and Derrick should get an anonymous egg donor. Ryan’s girlfriend and his brother’s wife both turned him down and now he’s asking his best friend and it doesn’t look good. I always thought I could do it, but after giving it some thought last night, I don’t think I could watch my biological child being raised by someone else even if they are family or friends. But I also think they asked Ryan’s girlfriend for show purposes though.

    Looking forward to watching the premier of Aquarius on NBC tonight. It’s about the underworld of Los Angeles in the ’60s and the cults like the Manson family. Love that kind of stuff. Hope it’s good!

    I sure do love me some four day work weeks and this one is flying by. Unfortunately, I do have to attend a funeral tomorrow of a good friend though. So it has also been a sad week as well. Ain’t life grand? You take the good, you take the bad . . . Love to all here!

    • Sorry to hear about your friends passing. As for the FB attack, it’s surprising how we can feel so bad over strangers online, isn’t it? It does happen, though, and I just step away from the keyboard and get some perspective.

      Thanks for the reminder about Aquarius. Sounds interesting.

    • California35 says:

      Im sorry about your friend’s passing and FB bearing up.
      In a difrent life and a galaxy far far away, i considered insemination. I had a fee friends who knew, and all supportive but some would try to help by suggesting I ask so and so for their … Contribution. I was only considering it at that time, and even then I had no interest on asking anyone. I thought it would be best to go the “bank” route. I think that Fedrick should do what he and his partrr feel comfortable avobe all, but I hope they prefer anonymity. Have their own child, theirs only.

      I will watch Aquarious and I thoight it would began next week. I will have to catch it on Demand. I cant’t wait for Hannibal also 😀😀

      • ladebra says:

        Oh gosh yes! I keep checking for Hannibal!! Love that show.

        • California35 says:

          I am too!!! I get the hanibal updates and previews. Don’t they look great? Great show! 😀👍🏼🍴🍴🍷

    • Exit4 says:

      I hope it wasn’t a board where a bunch of us are. That sucks!

  35. Butters'Mom says:

    Thank you to everyone for your kinds words of support, hugs, and prayers for my Dad. It means a lot to me. Is it weird that I can always count on this special place to make me feel better? I have never met any of you but your are truly great, supportive people. Thank you so much for everything. On the bright side, my friends are throwing me a bachelorette party. It should be fun and will hopefully distract me for awhile. It’s a week from Saturday and will include many margaritas and NO strippers.

  36. designernailsdiana says:

    My power went out last night around 8:30 p.m. and was out until 10:38 p.m. so I missed all the shows I wanted to see. I did get some reading done however.
    I gave my notice at the office on Tuesday. My last day will be June 12th. I’m sad to leave because I love my job, but DH and I discussed the plus and minuses of leaving. I’ll spend the summer getting my health issues under control while cleaning, organizing and clearing out my house. I’m reclaiming the spaces in my house that have been taken over by what my parents had and what my kids left behind. I own the home I grew up in and when my Mom died my Dad didn’t throw her stuff out as much as he left it to me to go thru her things and give away or keep what I wanted.
    Some of you know I have fibromyalgia and osteo arthritis. My fibro has been giving me more than a little trouble the last 5 months. I’m going to try some new therapy and exercise routines to see if that helps my day to day pain. Arthritis just continues to be a big ol pain in the …. joints. Every day I feel pain and get relief only thru pain meds. I can’t take certain medications because of other health issues so I’m limited to a small list of medications. I’ve given up alcohol and don’t miss it or the nasty attitude it gives me when I drink too much. I rather like the non-drunk Diana much more anyway!
    I’ll have more time for my hobbies like: sewing , Grandkidlets and will finally get my paint brushes out to begin painting. I’m looking into beginning my own business so this will give me the time to research, plan and decide the best course to I should take to get started.
    I thoroughly enjoy coming to my Lynn-Family and seeing all the supportive people here. We are like a REAL non dysfunctional FAMILY. We cheer each other one and cheer each other up. We snark about reality tv and have super sleuths who uncover lies about these cray cray tv people.
    I Love You All!!!!!
    Thank you and Blessings to you all,
    Diana

    • HuskerHuny says:

      My best wishes to you Diana and hoping for a better and healthier future for you. Hoping for only good things for you. Blessings.

    • T-Rex says:

      Sending you tons of Good Vibes Diana!

    • You know, I quit working outside of my home about 15 years ago and ended up with 15 years in paradise, enjoying my family and doing all the things I love. It is priceless and I feel like the luckiest person on earth. Time is one thing money cannot buy.

      I hope you have a wonderful time, too. .

    • California35 says:

      I am happy for you, taking the time to get better and resolve house situation. Take care and don’t work too hard, do just a few things a day so you can enjoy the process. I know you will make it fun 😊

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      (((Diana)))

    • Orson says:

      So, Kim’s out on a drunken bender in Mexico. Sounds to me like the express train to that bottom she’s been looking for. I bet sharing a room in a US rehab place would seem a lot more attractive to her than spending time in a Mexican women’s jail.

    • T-Rex says:

      Thanks, a couple of problems in the report though, but first off that is one of the WORST websites to access, I hate it, it loads all wrong and tons of malware on there, ugh. BUT to the story, I hat when they quote RadaronliarliarPantsonFire and have wrong information. First, the Hotel didn’t press ANY charges nor would they, the POLICE and the State of California charged DrugAddictAlcoholicKim, so the plea deal is with the State, it never had been with the Hotel, ugh I hate when websites regurgitate info from another website and then get it wrong. Anyhoo, of course the attorneys would be trying to arrange a plea deal, but at last check she did not have an attorney, KruellaKathy must have purchased one for her. Look she no shows to court in a couple of weeks she is going to have her ass a warrant for Failure to Appear and that is NEVER a good thing when trying to have one’s charges reduced or to plead out. I would suspect that any plea deal at this point is going to have MANDATORY Drug/Alcohol counseling involved and the Courts AIN”T Dr. Phil in some posh posh Rehab, they will make her go to a REAL Rehab and if she balks they will offer her 3 hots and a Cot at the StateHotel

      • Orson says:

        Well, 3 hots and a cot will certainly get her detoxed, though she’ll really not enjoy it. And afterwards, she’ll still have to go to a lockdown rehab. Unless, she goes off the walls enough to get a 5150 or worse, enough that she’ll be so doped up she’ll be no trouble at all.

        Question: Is there a court ordered long term psychiatric care term? Or would her Next Of Kin have to go and ask a court to have her committed?

        • T-Rex says:

          Mental health commitment is extremely hard to get, especially through the court system, they would have to prove mental instability and that she would be a harm to herself or others, unfortunately drinking and drugging yourself to death doesn’t count. Her charges don’t come close to warranting those type of charges, the MOST she would get is court ordered Rehab, and that may be as little as 30 days depending on her attorney and the deal that is made with the courts. I would venture she would probably get 60 days at the minimum in Rehab, with a probationary period of a year or two, with weekly drug/alcohol testing.

      • mrs peabody says:

        I think court ordered rehab would be the best thing in the world for her. I hope she gets it.

    • California35 says:

      Is fine, lost somewhere in Mexico, or wherever?? Or her family know where she is but they aren’t talking??? Basically if that is the case, maybe she is finally not in contact anyone that would link information to the press. Incomunicada, is a good thing. I hope that is the case, so that is not lost and on trouble somewhere.

    • California35 says:

      Hmmm

      Hey Nicky’s wedding in Italy, nice! She is marrying up (or same). Too bad some in the family just can’t get their act together.

    • T-Rex says:

      I find it very interesting this RAG MAG would post the above, yet reading the article they are trying to be very respectful and accommodating to the courts, in fact are asking they move up his hearing, not delay it! Look you all know I am NO KruellaKathy fan, but they are trying to be responsible and they aren’t trying to shirk the court appearance, nor even delay it. Crap those ConvictFElonJuicy’s were delaying shit all the time, the felony state case went on delays for almost two years!

  37. California35 says:

    I noticed the blog that got “broken” and I can’t get into. I read on the following blog so I know that it happened and that I wont be able to get to it…also know some of the reason why it happened 😛 and what I may have missed. Too bad since it sounds like it was a fun blog.

    I also have noticed that there is no recap or many comments about Southern Charm. Has not been recaped, or have I missed so,e blogs? From twitter i see that it is over 😒. There will be a mini ruinion (as last year’s) in the WWHL house. I hope I get to watch the missed episodes before the reuinion next week.

    I’ve noticed also that there were some good WWHL, hopefully Bravo will show or have them on demand.

    I can’t view any of the videos on the Bravo webpage, I can read only, I dont know if it is my devise or if it is Bravo.
