Luis is quickly getting ready to go to the office, but he has to contend with his mother, who is visiting and preparing pancakes for breakfast.  Channeling her inner Donna Reed, she looks lovely in a white silk blouse with a black bow and pearl earrings.  Although Luis can’t wait to get out the door, she tries to get him to sit down and eat something.  It looks like a breakfast commercial for impatient millennials or preschoolers.  Luis’ mother is not clearly not pleased with what she sees of her son’s life or lack thereof.  She chides for having only one plate, one cup and one spoon.  These are the sort of things you can’t get by a mother.  Shaking her head in concern, Luis’ mother asks if this is the life that he wants.  Blindsided by the maternal inquisition, Luis can’t escape his apartment fast enough.  Ronita better get on that spoonless situation stat.  Luis is still working on the sale of Garin’s triplex on 90th St.  You may remember that he found a buyer who offered $2.9 million, only to have the buyer’s broker go MIA on him.

Fredrik is also dealing with a property that he hasn’t been able to sell quickly.  He calls a meeting in his office to exhort his team to find a buyer for the $22.5 million townhome in the West Village.  They’ve gotten a lackluster response from showings, because it has a “crazy, high price”.  Fredrik says that he can smell the mood of the real estate market, which is taking a breather and going to the Hamptons for the weekend.

Ryan has an appointment for a listing in 157 W. 57th St., which is a brand new, luxury building ” that caters to the ultra rich located on what’s become known as “Billionaires Row.  Expecting to meet in person with Victor, the owner’s assistant, Ryan is confronted by a monitor mounted on a remotely controlled stand on wheels.  He is startled when Victor’s face suddenly appears on the screen.  Apparently, Victor too busy to appear in person and will instead virtually lead Ryan on a tour of the 2,145 sq. ft. apartment.  Like almost every apartment on MDLNY, this unit is spectacular, with beautiful views of the Manhattan skyline and a partial view of Central Park.  The owner bought it in 2011 for $8.9 million and proceeded to make renovations totaling $1 million, even though it was a new building.  Victor tells Ryan that the owner would like to sell it for $16 million, an amount Ryan feels is unreasonable, especially since the apartment only has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and an obstructed view of the park.  He convinces Victor to list it for the more reasonable price of $13.95 million.  Once Victor agrees, the screen goes black abruptly, leading Ryan to wonder what just happened.

Luis is talking to Ronita about the marketing they need to do for Garin’s triplex.  He admits that he is has a hard time delegating work.

Ryan meets with Olivia to check on the status of the large penthouse she is selling at 22 Renwick.  He then tells her that’s he’s sold the smaller penthouse and hands her a gift wrapped box.  Olivia opens the box to find a modest bathing suit and a swim cap, which she’ll need now that she’s lost the best and will have to jump into the river.  Even though she’s going to share in the real estate commission, she’s a little suspicious that Ryan was able to close the deal so quickly.

Fredrik has a meeting with Tom and Jared, the developers of the West Village townhouse.  They are visibly upset with Fredrik’s lack of progress and warn him that their “patience expires”.  Apparently, so will the exclusive listing.  They refuse to give him more time, which leaves Fredrik 1 week to sell the property.  He’s furious but determined to get the deal done and make the developers eat their words.

Ryan is showing his listing at One57, as the building is known.  Although he steers people to the apartment’s positive features, like the skyline vistas, custom coffered ceilings and ebony clad closet walls, everyone seems to notice the obstructed view of Central Park.  Ryan says that it’s getting harder to sell apartments to the one percenters, because there is a surplus of inventory in the super luxury real estate market.  As an incentive, the seller has decided to include the custom furniture at no additional cost. Who wants to deal with the hassle of moving furniture anyway, right?

Fredrik reaches out to a client who is looking for a “footprint” in New York City.  Although Fredrik interests him in the townhome, the client is balking at its high price.  The client says that he didn’t get rich by overspending on a house.

The missing broker has surfaced, and Luis is meeting him in a restaurant.  Luis is surprised to see him enter the room slowly, trailing a ventilator.  The broker, who is wearing a breathing tube, apologizes in a courtly manner for not returning calls.  He explains that he’s been in the hospital very sick.  He’ll likely need heart, liver and lung transplants, but he says that the deal is still on.  To his credit, Luis tries to brush that talk aside, saying that it’s not as important as the other broker’s health.  Sadly, the broker tells Luis that his prognosis is grim.  He wants to give Luis some advice:  “go home and hug the one you love.  That’s what life is all about”.

In the office, Olivia marches up to Ryan holding an envelope addressed to Puffer Munkin LLC, the entity that bought the smaller penthouse on Renwick.  Ryan tries to be cagey as Olivia grills him, wanting to know (as do we all), “What is a Puffer Munkin?”.  Once she susses out that Ryan sold the apartment to himself, she declares that he’s disqualified and has lost their bet.  Although he tries to tell her that he really wouldn’t have made her jump into the river, she is adamant that he’s the loser and will have to wear a bunny suit.  Seeing that he doth protest too much, Olivia tells him, “If you’re into Puffer Munkins, you’re probably into bunny suits”.  Good one, Olivia.

With 72 hours left on the listing for the West Village townhome, Fredrik has set up another meeting with the irritated developers.  He presents them with an all-cash offer for $19.5 million, which still fails to please them.  Fredrik convinces Tom and Jared to make a reasonable counter-offer at $22 million.  While he talks with the prospective buyer, the developers talk about how nice it is to see Fredrik sweating.  I’m not liking these guys, because they don’t appreciate the difficult position they put Fredrik in with the high price they insisted on.  The potential buyer is pushed to counter his offer first to $20.5 million, and then to $21 million, which sets a record for the area.  Fredrik feels victorious and in a dramatic move, announces that he’s willing to forego his $600,000+ commission so that the developers will make more money.  Uhhh, Fredrik, developers have enough money.  You don’t need to cut your nose to spite your face.

Luis has seen the light – or at least gotten a glimpse of what his future may look like if he continues to live the way he has been.  He knows that he stresses himself out and doesn’t take care of himself.  He tells us that he recently thought he was having a heart attack and was rushed to the hospital.  We get a montage of Luis stressing out and the then the ride in the ambulance.  He finally admits that he needs help and has hired a life coach.  When the life coach asks what the longest time is that he’s ever gone without answering his text messages, Luis replies that it’s the current conversation.  He understands that he needs to be more in the present and that nothing else matters except what’s in front of you.  The life coach shows him how to meditate and afterwards, a visibly relaxed Luis sheds happy tears.

10 - bunny suit

On a lighter note, we see Ryan strolling into his Nest Seekers office wearing a pink bunny suit and eating a carrot.  Olivia reminds Ryan that he cheated and will be subjected to the humiliation of wearing the bunny suit and running her errands.  She is remorseless and gives him a to do list that includes getting a salad, a cup of coffee and, the ultimate punishment, a box of tampons.  Ryan seems unfazed and a little too at ease hopping around in a bunny suit.  As a former actor, he’s clearly comfortable with being an exhibitionist and has no problem making a fool of himself in public.  It’s also hilarious to see people walking around Manhattan oblivious to the giant bunny in their midst.  Once he returns to the office with his tasks completed, Olivia absolves him from having to wear the suit any longer.  Curiously, he’s in no hurry to take it off.

11 - bunny 2 12 - mdlny

Will we ever find out what IS Puffer Munkin or who is Keyser Sőze?  Will Fredrik regret giving away over half a million dollars in commission?  Will Luis zen his way to better health, get a life AND make his mother happy?  Stay tuned.

    I happen to love this group of MDLNY. Fredrick shows why he is top. Ryan doesn’t take himself too seriously and Luis is cute as well as tenacious.
    BTW this mini retirement is Awesome!!!!!!

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Enjoy that mini retirement Diana! Have to say I’m a bit jealous though.

      • designernailsdiana says:

        I’d gladly trade a day without pain for a week of work. I slept lousy last night. Isaak has been an angel though. My Gamma time is precious.

  2. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone and Diana. It was hot as heck yesterday but of course you know I loved it. No storms as predicted but we may get some today. I do like a quick evening storm. We shall see. I hope NMD is still having a great time relaxing.
    Congrats to the Blackhawks. Lynn is smiling down on her cousin and I’m sure Cathy is ecstatic.
    I’m looking forward to MDLS (San Francisco). That should be pretty good in Silicon Valley. Some beautiful property out there.
    I hope you all have a great day.

  3. Powell says:

    One cup, spoon and plate? They do have Pottery Barn there and he could get a full kitchen set up on sale. Just in April I bought a couple of huge white mugs on sale for $3 each. I love that store. They have awesome sales. My point is there’s no excuse for Luis not outfitting his kitchen.

  4. Powell says:

    Oh boy when I watch this epi I’m going to shed a few tears. The poor Broker. I feel so badly for him. I hope Luis heeds his advice.

  5. Powell says:

    I think NotInStCry’s blog is posted twice on the page.

  6. Powell says:

    Ladebra commenting on what you said about Joanna and the case against Booble Bobble Head. I truly think Joanna knows there’s really nothing to get from Booble but lawyers fees being paid by Booble. That’s what I’m cheering. Again sorry, but I am. If this is Booble’s attempt to stay in the media, like T-Rex said, She’s made a poor attempt because she’s gaining nothing monetarily. They get paid from celebrity apprentice, She’s been paid from BH, She’s been paid for her books, I guess she’s made some money from that wine and also from that article she does in that rag mag. Where is it all now going, to pay lawyers because she was only “joking”.
    She supposedly has so many BFFs but none of them can seem to talk her off her continuous walk on that ledge. I don’t get it.

    • T-Rex says:

      Powelly, I have seen the documents, KrupaKupcake wants her to PAY for what she said, in addition to Legal fees, and also a Formal Apology and acknowledgment she said what she said, WITHOUT, any “BUTS” after the apology. They offered them a very small amount of Money to make it go away, but the attorneys said NOPE. She wants the Judgment, oh and you can file against someone’s bank account to get that judgment, as well, plus it follows you everywhere. Oh and she has made NO MONEY from the wine sales, the company that produced the wine hasn’t made any money either, it’s not selling, and as in most HoWives tradition the money is made by appearance fees, and you can make money on the wines, AFTER the initial “lot” sells and they make more. The only TWO appearances that THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONGSTFUBrandi has made for the wine, is the initial debut, and at the Winery that made the wines, she hasn’t done ANY other appearances. I would venture to say that there won’t be another production of that wine. The Vintners, who are Ho-Wives fanatics have tried to get other BHills folks to publicize their wines, and THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONGSTFUBrandi was the only one that said yes.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        She never going to see money from the wine-she only owns 25%-by the time the wine actually makes money it will go to the actually owners -this was just something for her to slap her name on-she’s too lazy and frazzled to make a living by working. If she loses her spot on BH she’s done financially-I believe she has another book in the works but I don’t think her 2nd sold as well as her first-best seller yes -but that doesn’t mean much money!!

        • T-Rex says:

          Agreed, seriously, TheRoyalVpump, OWNS her Sangria line, and her daughter and son-in-law run it, and they make OODLES of appearances for that product so that they can make MONEY. One thing about ConvictfelonTeresa, LAZY she was NOT! She knew in order to make money off that wine they were selling she needed to get out and make appearances because she made money from the appearance and got a bigger cut on the wine sales if they were made during that appearance. THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONGSTFUBrandi is LAZY, she just wants to make money selling her stories to the Tabloids, that’s why she is IN them so much, she will give phone interviews “for a buck”, all day long, and most of what she reports is complete lies and fabrications.

          • Powell says:

            Yes Lisa and her family know what they’re doing and Tre learned what she needed to and kept herself out in the public. I suspect she’ll do the same in some form after she’s released. Booble would rather sell stories to rag mags T-Rex. ITA. She doesn’t get the rag mags will move on and not want any stories from her very soon.

        • Powell says:

          Good. I don’t feel sorry for someone who blatantly has no respect for anyone. Not even for herself and her kids. If she did she wouldn’t be in the place she is.
          I really don’t want to hear she needs money to take care of her kids. #1 she should have thought about that 4 yrs ago. #2 their stepmother makes sure they have whatever they need. 🙄 😏

      • Powell says:

        I hope Joanna gets what she wants. After its all over with do you think Booble will think twice in the future before she opens her trap about anyone? Do you think she’ll mess w/Joanna again?

        • T-Rex says:

          NOPE because that moron sent her a FISH in a public restaurant as a “joke” while she is in the midst of a lawsuit and has a restraining order against her to stay away from, speak about, or look at KrupaKupcake. She will “sell” her side of the story to every rag mag that will pay her five cents!

    • ladebra says:

      Totally agree Powell. Brandi is old enough to be responsible for her decisions. The tick-tick-cray-cray crap is not funny.

  7. T-Rex says:

    Okay scooplet on the recent articles that VileKyle is getting the boot from Ho-Wives. First off, as we all know, she has been “PINING” for a spin-off on Bravo since Season ONE, it just kills her that TheRoyalVPump has one and she doesn’t. SO, she decided to market herself to other networks, it can’t really be ABOUT her, per se, due to her contracts with Bravo, but weird word on the street, is that Bravo is pissed off about the whole thing. The other nugget I received is that VileKyle wants a little bit more money to come back this year, and I don’t think Bravo is interested in paying her any more money, uhm VileKyle, call CountlessLuManDeLeHubcaps and ask her how that worked out last season, she got paid less, was given friend status and had to work her ass off to get back on the show full time. SO, my “birdie” says that Bravo may be planting the stories to see what viewer reaction is regarding them firing her. DrugAddict/AlcoholicKim and her PR team are BEGGING Bravo not to fire her, but that deal is done, they can’t risk the liability of her being on the show, especially after learning she had been drunk the whole time and that the production company basically “covered her ass”. I know folks will say MzAndy had to know, but he doesn’t FILM the ladies, he relies on what the production company films, he isn’t day to day with the ladies and from what I have heard everyone LIED, including VileKyle about her sobriety, another reason MzAndy is pissed at VileKyle. I believe someone from the actual production company was fired, again this is the rumor. SO, Rumors are that MzAndy IS courting KruellaKathy and Mohammed’s fiancée Shiva to be on the show, they are also looking at another actress to come on the show. Regarding THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONGSTFUBrandi they are waiting until the last second to announce she isn’t coming back, allegedly, because they don’t want her to go all “Postal” on social media, until they start filming. TheRoyalVpump, LypsLisa, and ThatTrampweLoveEileen have all been given their contracts, and that was over a month ago.

    • T-Rex says:

      Ooooo forgot to add that THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONGSTFUBrandi has offered to do the Show this season for LESS money she just wants to be on the show so badly she will do anything to make that happen. However she continues to give interviews which Bravo can’t ignore, that are complete lies, including her staging and faking fights a drama for the show and given an interview the show is scripted.

      • California35 says:

        Thanks T-Rex!!!
        B is her own worst enemy. Isn’t she ? She fights with all the wives, she needs the money, she begs to come back, she doesn’t stop talking, she creates problems for her self on and off camera, with her cast mates and others. She does not talk about her books and wine to promote them, the lost goes one…. In the mean time she needs the money.

        • California35 says:

          About Kyle, interesting. She did want to be the star of the show, and with all the drama about her sister and her daughter and her family period, i feel bad for her and so do many other fans,,,BUT she is still the same Kyle from when she sided against Lisa and sided with Brandi, and sided with Taylor, who didnt get along with Camille, etc etc. and did not become the star. She is one favorite, out of many of them, but not the star. So i can see her looking else where…to either show Bravo so it would help her, or to really leave Bravo.

      • Awesome scooplets! Happy Tuesday everyone have a great day and 4 more days to Butter’s wedding. Let’s send her some great weather!

        • Butters'Mom says:

          Thanks SJP. I am starting to get into the what will be will be mode and not get all crazy if things go wrong. I certainly don’t want to be like Scheena on my wedding day.

          Thanks to everyone for the well wishes. The dress is done and very pretty. It looks like this thing may really happen…gulp….

          • OneMoreInBoston says:

            It’s getting real up in here

          • Powell says:

            Yeahhhhhhh!! YES it is happening! 😄 🙌

          • I don’t want to be inappropriate–my trademark, BTW–but may I ask about your hubs-to-be? (Or wife-to-be, if that’s the case?) Is he someone you are thrilled to be marrying? Is he responsible and can be counted on? Can you not imagine breathing if he walked away? And most importantly, is he a kind person with a good heart? Does he make you laugh?

            If you can answer yes to those, nothing that can happen on your wedding day will be anything but wonderful because You Scored! 😀

            Best wishes for a long and happy life with the one you love.

          • Foxymel(Mel) says:

            Sending you much love in your big day. Try not to worry about a thing that morning because there’s nothing you can do and it’ll be one of the best days of your life. Focus on that.

          • Best wishes Butters Mom!!!!!

            All health and happiness to you all!!! 👪👫👰🏻💑💚💚

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Of course ROL has a story today saying Lisa will NOT be returning this season…

      • T-Rex says:

        TheRoyalVPump gave one “cagey” interview wherein she suggested that she hasn’t decided on whether she is DONE with this show or not since VPRules was filming after BHills aired. She does this kind of thing EVERY season, so it’s amusing that RadaronLiarLIarPantsonFire(allegedly) takes that BAIT every season. They have professed since Season ONE that she wasn’t coming back each time, LOL! I can actually give you dates of the EXACT same crap nonsense they have posted year after year. Hey maybe they think if they post it enough times, maybe once it will be true. UGH

        January 2013 RadaronLiarLIarPantsonFire(allegedly) posts TheRoyalVpump has officially quit the show

        November 7th 2013 RadaronLiarLIarPantsonFire(allegedly) posts TheRoyalVpump has officially quit the show

        May 27th, 2014 RadaronLiarLIarPantsonFire(allegedly) posts TheRoyalVpump has officially quit the show

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Lisa does encourage it though-she always acts like she doesn’t know if she could possibly return for another arduous season….

          • T-Rex says:

            Oh YES SHE DOES! I absolutely whole heartedly Agree that she fuels their little heads over there, because she knows she can mess with them and they take the BAIT every single time. It’s so funny because then like fifty other outlets pick it up and get fooled again by RadaronLiarLIarPantsonFire(allegedly). At least TMZ for now has pretty much STOPPED regurgitating stories from them

      Great scooplets T-Rex. I believe Bravo would put stuff out to see what they get back from Kyle and her Mgr/lawyer. Makes sense really. I can see Kyle keeping the truth to herself because let’s face it she blew the top off that bottle seasons ago and doesn’t want to be responsible for anymore info passing her lips. I want Kyle back. And Kyle you’re not getting a raise. I don’t want Kathy. I think she’d be boring. Yes keep Booble Head twisting in the wind til the last possible second. I’m waiting for the “I have other projects in the works that I wanted to focus on so I wasn’t coming back.”. HA!!!!!!!

      • Orson says:

        Of course, Bobble’s “I have other projects in the works that I wanted to focus on so I wasn’t coming back.” ploy leaves Bravo the the high road by stating “We didn’t want to preclude any of Brandi’s opportunities by making her commit to another season with us. We wish her the best of success in all her future projects.”

        • Orson says:

          And after that sinks in, Bobble will be singing this:

          • Powell says:

            #RIPBBKing

            Yes no one loves her but her mother. What did Lisa say? “I say It’s the parents fault.”, or however she said it. Lisa was joking not joking when she said that to Booble Head’s mother.

        • Powell says:

          OMG Orson! You have that done pat. That’s just what they will say. HA!! 👍

          • Orson says:

            I think of it as “Corporate Speak”, and I like to have fun with it. In another online community, we occasionally trot out our imaginary corporation. I came up with the slogan for our Customer Service Department: We’re not happy until you’re not happy. And I seem to be the Vice President in Charge of Forms, which can be a surprisingly powerful position.

            • T-Rex says:

              Do you chastise each other for NOT having the correct Cover Sheets on the Reports, because you got the Memo and you know about the New cover sheets right, LOL

              • Orson says:

                We’d never chastise anyone. They just have to follow the proper procedure. First they have to fill out a Request for a Request for a Forms Request Form (in quadruplicate) and get that approved by their chain of command and then submit it to me. After that gets approved, they’ll get a Request for a Forms Request Form, where they have to put down which Form they want a Request Form for (in triplicate) and that has to go up for approval. If that passes, then they could request a Cover Sheet Request Form. And if that goes through, They’ll get the CSRF. If that goes through, they’ll be approved to go through a similar process to get a copy of the most current CSRF Catalog because, for example, Reports and Letters don’t get the same Cover Sheets. Eventually, they’ll submit the Cover Sheet For A 15 To 25 Page Internal Use Only Report Request and more often than not, it’ll have to be turned down because they didn’t follow the instructions about what kind of pen and colour of ink they were supposed to use. They were all in the Memo. Oh, you didn’t get that memo? No problem. Just fill out a Request for a Memo Copy Request Form and we’ll see about getting you a copy of that memo. Or the Form you have to fill out to request a copy of a memo. Oh, you don’t know which memo you need a copy of? Oh, then you need the correct Memo Catalog. Do you know the date of that Memo? Oh dear. Why didn’t you ask for a Catalog of Memo Catalogs? I can help you with that. Let me find the correct Request to make a Request for A Request Form. Oops, it’s lunch time. I’ll get to that for you right after lunch, m’kay? 🙂

                Remember, if there were no procedures, NOTHING would ever get done properly.

    On the age old topic of Kim Richards, her daughter (Kimberly) posted a picture of Kim and herself on Instagram yesterday. And Kim responded to it. She must be able to have her phone in rehab.

    Actually, I understand the one plate, knife, fork, spoon, and bowl attitude. If you only own one of each, you’ll never have a sink full of dirty dishes to wash. On the other hand, you’ll have to hand wash them because you’ll never fill the dishwasher enough to make it worth while to run.

    • T-Rex says:

      When I first met Mr.T-Rex at his “man shack”, I say ManShack because it was a small house, that hadn’t had a cleaning in a few years, there were 3 bachelors residing in the house with five dogs! Each of the guys had ONE set of dishes, they had ONE frying pan, One Baking Sheet, and One pan to boil water in between all of them, and the baking sheet looked like it had been used as a football occasionally. LOL! So I get it. On a digression side note, ALL 3 of them met their future wives(okay one reconnected with a childhood friends sister) the same WEEK in October 1989! AND we are all still married today

    They have released the cast bios and pics for this year’s Big Brother. They might as well rename it the 20someting Big Brother. Again, no age diversity and after reading the bios, there’s a whole lot of stupid that is going to be locked up in that house this summer. But I will watch and hope for the best. Please, oh please, oh please – let there be one smart girl! The one girl who is a successful professional poker player intrigues me. Poker players have to know how to read people and know when they are bluffing. Just watch – she’s probably the first one out!

  11. shamrockblonde says:

    thanks for the blog NotInStCyr!!! – much appreciated – I am loving these guys – all three of them! – a rarity in the Bravo world – at least for me!

    thanks too T-Rex for the scooplets!! – very interesting – I did not know that Kim would be able to keep her phone – as for Kyle – I don’t really care for her all that much, but she is tolerable in small amounts with long breaks in between – now as far as bobble – two seconds on screen is too many for me – keep Kyle – get rid of bobble –

    If I ever get rich enough to buy one of those properties that Fredrick deals with, when I am ready to sell it Fredrick is my guy – I’d have a drink with Ryan and with his Amelia and I would love to hear a conversation between Luis and Bethenny – I think it would be hysterical!

    writing about Amelia – my cousin James – when he started dating the woman who would become his wife, he would introduce her as “the lovely Grace” – it got so that when asking about her we would preface her name with “the lovely” just like he did – to this day, any time we get together with all of the cousins, my girls ask “are Uncle James and the lovely Grace coming?” – I can almost hear Ryan calling Amelia something like that – listening to Ryan talk about her reminds me very much of my cousin – and they have four boys and a girl now……

    T-Rex I haven’t asked you how you’ve been feeling lately since its much hotter.

    • T-Rex says:

      Well not too good, but not sure if it’s the weather being so miserable this year, we got Hot earlier this year and I am not so good in hot and muggy. We are trying to get our ducks in a row so within a few years we can hightail it to North Carolina for better weather for me. I am having an issue keeping my temperature above 96.2 degrees the past week, so that’s not good. I had MAJOR scans last Wednesday, and well, not looking so great from what I read, but I have the Dr. update next Friday, they are in Conference today and tomorrow with my case. I have to explain that my Cancer center rules by “committee” on major cases like mine, so that there are upwards of 20 to 25 doctors perusing my info to make the best decision on where I am right now and where I am going and what needs to be done. So, next Friday we shall see the outcome. I am taking MrLuckyCharmT-Rex to this appt. So far every time I take him, if I think I am getting bad news, it’s usually not as bad as I think it will be. Fingers crossed, you guys know I will let you know the outcome.

      • Powell says:

        I’m sorry. I was afraid the heat wasn’t doing you any good. That’s pretty great you have a committee of docs. Several heads are better than one I guess. I say you’re going to get good news back. And most definitely take your lucky charm with you. 😊
        If NC would be a better climate for you that would be great if you can make that move in the near future.

      • Wish you were feeling better and I think I speak for us all when I say I hope things go well on Friday and your “committee” had ideas and suggestions that will help keep things in check.

      • Foxymel(Mel) says:

        T-Rexie, thinking about you! Sending you positive thoughts and healing vibes. It’s so hot here in FL, please stay cool (not Luann cool-lol). 💗

      • Yeah, what they said!

        I never think of you as sick, because you don’t act sick. I know that’s not an indication, just saying you are a fighter, that’s clear. Add me to your cheering section! ♥

        • T-Rex says:

          WTG= Even my coworkers forget I am sick, I go to work every day and just try to be as “normal” as I can, for me I think that helps. I know that at some point I will have to stop and go on Disability but I am NOT interested in that yet, I am going to stay as normal as I can, and fingers crossed, I hit retirement age before I have to even think of Disability

      • California35 says:

        Feel better T-Rex.

      • FattyCat says:

        hey T-Rex, did the relay for life Saturday night, light a luminaire (whatever, not sure of the spelling) for you. Didn’t have my camera, but you were there! Hoping all goes well and you feel better. I know, you don’t know me well, but I’m one of those people that always has everyone in my thoughts and prayers, and you, ButtersMom’s Dad are on my list. Anyone else want on my “list”, let me know, been through different cancers with different family members and friends, lost, loved, you all know. And, I always light my Mom’s “magic candle” (yes, blessed holy candle lite for special intentions). In fact it’s going now for a very different reason, but for someone special who needs prayers.

        Sorry, didn’t mean to get all mushy and crap……

        • T-Rex says:

          Oh my gosh, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I will take everything I can get and how wonderful you are for lighting a Luminaire for me, WOW. All of you here on the boards are just so Freaking amazeballs, you have no idea. That’s why I can’t lose you guys, so I now MsVeena is retiring, but I hope that everyone comes to the Starzy site when up!!

        • Powell says:

          That’s sweet Fattycat.

        • Foxymel(Mel) says:

          Oh my gosh, that is so nice. ❤️

      • TRex you are an INSPIRATION!

        Kind of Powelly to ask about you and interesting to hear about the committee involved.

        You want to keep your temp HIGH? I thought the heat would help that?
        Maybe I’m (unsurprisingly) misreading this.

        Feel grrrrrrrrreat 💙

  14. Orson says:

    On one hand, I’d be interested to see Kyle on HWs with NO Kim drama to deal with. And with no Brandi crappola also. Then she’d have to sort of fend for herself for a bit. I think the Lisa’s and Eileen would sort of be indifferent to her and who knows if or when Yolanda would appear. I guess Kyle would assume the role of Mother Hen/Mentor to any new HW. And think of how well that worked for Heather mothering Bethany over in NYC.

    Yeah, I guess it’s a good of a time as any for Kyle to take on a new, different project.

  15. shamrockblonde says:

    Orson – perhaps a splits instructor? or a hair flipping trainer? I kid, I kid – she will be back I think –

    T-Rex – I am always in awe of your courage – you know we are all with you and that I keep you and all your care in my prayers – deep breath – have faith – you are not alone – *hugs T-Rex really hard*

    • T-Rex says:

      Thank You, I am really nervous for some reason about this next Dr visit, I am NOT supposed to read my pathology reports, but dagnabbit they to stop posting them online for me to read! I hope to hear, yep we are right on schedule and things are doing great, so fingers crossed. But I am in AMAZING hands, so even if we have to switch from PlanA to PlanB, I know I am going to handle this JUST FINE< because you have to FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        Fingers crossed T-Rex.

      • ladebra says:

        You are AMAZing T-Rex. I admire your strength and determination, and your humor and positive attitude in your Fight to Kick Cancer to the Curb! I hope you feel the love and support flowing your way. It’s hard! It sucks! And I want to hear about you ringing that bell when you beat it! Sending you healing light and love💕

  16. On a completely different topic…
    You all know I live in Northeast Ohio. This is a very very sad area of our country. Did you know the Cleveland Indians have not won the World Series since 1948? Did you know the Cleveland Browns have never appeared in or won the Super Bowl? The Cleveland Cavaliers have never won the championship. It is a sad sad town. We are home to a few celebrities, but really, who wants to live on The Mistake on the Lake with a RIVER that caught fire???
    So I ask of you all, no I beg of you…please send some good vibes our way! This city needs this win for the Cavs and for Cleveland. Sent out good vibes, thoughts, rain dances, whatever it takes to help make this team finally bring one home for the city!
    That’s all I got.

  17. shamrockblonde says:

    GO CAVS!!!!!!! – but you know, that City has you – so it HAS to be special, and cool and non-stop fun – I know this because that’s what you bring to this family here! – so GO CAVS!!!! join Namaste in the cool crowd in Northeast Ohio!!!!

  18. Foxymel(Mel) says:

    Anyone watching Married at First Sight? Apparently one of the two couples who remained married, Jessica and Ryan, have been going through some scandalous stuff! Jessica took out a restraining order on Ryan. He was allegedly doing drugs during the time they were filming and she’s saying that he’s also a drug dealer. This show is a hot mess!

    • T-Rex says:

      Foxy I read that, WhollySmokesBatman what a mess! I watched Season One and that was pretty good they found some actual folks that wanted to find a mate. HOWEVER The realityWHOREbug hit folks for the season two casting, IMO. and they were so HARD up to find anyone good looking enough for Reality TV that they cast the current season of folks. I personally thought none of them were really into each other, but just wanted to be on TV wherein Season one it seemed they all truly wanted to find their soulmate, and the one couple from Season one that didn’t make did so, because that guy basically lied about what he wanted in a mate.

      • Foxymel(Mel) says:

        T-Rexie, I enjoyed season 1and watching season 2, seemed like a totally different show. Of course famewhores would apply and not care to marry and divorce just for the sake of being on tv. It was uncomfortable to watch at times and I was turned off. Can you imagine what season 3 will look like?

    • Are those the two from the 1st season who stayed married – the guy had odd spots on his face (me and my skin issues) —- them??

      Or from season 2?

      All my friends watch this.

      • Foxymel(Mel) says:

        Lol 😆 I’m referring to season 2. The guy with the spots on his face was on season 1.

    • I watched it and I knew that guy was a jerk!!

  19. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    I miss chatting while watching….I miss Tartsy!! ❤️❤️
    I HATE change!! I get it-I really do…but I don’t like it!!
