I Hate Jill Zarin Top Chef / Big Brother July 29, 2010

I Hate Jill Zarin                   Big Brother – Thursday Update                 July 28, 2010

So we last left the idiot Matt, as Head of Household and instead of putting up the two he promised, Brenden and Rachel, he put up Kathy and Andrew for eviction.  If he had an explanation, I didn’t get it, he certainly didn’t explain himself well and he has no GOOD explanation!  He sure did spend the rest of the episode complaining that nothing works out for him.  What a friggin moron this guy is! 

I get that Kathy voted for him last week but so what?  She’s certainly not a threat to anyone, she’s not going to win any challenges.   Andrew  being put on the block just makes no sense but Andrew acted like an idiot and began with his little anger fits and getting upset over such stupid little things.  As we know, the behavior of the nominees is always watched closely and if one of them acts like an immature baby, the target becomes bigger.  Unfortunately for Andrew, it gets worse. 

Matt calling himself the “evil genius” is an oxy- moron!  This decision is going to come back to haunt him sometime soon when either Brenden or Rachel are responsible for getting rid of Matt or one of Matt’s alliance.  As much as I cannot stand Rachel with the fugly fake Jill Zarin red hair, I hope that she targets Matt for his stupidity! 

The people playing in the power of veto competition couldn’t have been any worse.  Matt’s “master plan” is falling apart before it even begins.  With Raggedy Rachel, and Brenden being included in the POV competition, Matt is already nervous and he should be, what the hell was he thinking?  He could have at least put up one of them.  (Rachel or Brenden) 

Brendan’s win now ensures that either Kathy or Andrew will go home this week, something that does not help the Brigade at all and Matt looks like an absolute moron to his alliance.  Way to go Matt, I hope his alliance realizes how absolutely stupid this guy is and turns against him.  Enzo did talk about how Matt was supposed to be the brains of the operation and surprise, now they have no brains, not that they ever did.

I thought that Andrew was a complete moron for making the speech that he did, as Matt said Andrew’s goal was to make the houseguests think he was gunning for Brenden and Rachel and all it did was the opposite, it made him seem unstable and quite frankly stupid.  To state in no uncertain terms that he wanted the lip-locked couple out then to ask Brenden to use the power of veto on him was a little crazy!  If Matt can convince the Brigade that Andrew has to go, the votes could be tied and Matt could be sending Andrew home. 

This is the best Big Brother web site I’ve ever seen, however, if you don’t like the spoilers, keep an eye out for them because you will find out things before the episode airs.  But I love this site!  I do apologize for not knowing who posted it, but it was generously posted on the last Big Brother blog by one of my readers.  Thank you so much!!!

Top Chef              The Pea Puree Mystery                                July 28, 2010

I was disappointed in last week’s elimination, I think worse chef’s than Tamesha remain at this point and it was just the nature of the challenges that sealed her fate.  I was also disappointed in Kenny’s interview that he didn’t feel he belonged in the bottom two, he felt that it was simply his cheftestants going after him because he’s a strong competitor.  Sorry Kenny but the judges felt the same way as your peers did. 

That said, I continue to believe that Kenny and Angelo are the top two chefs’ and the ones to beat. 

The Quick Fire Challenge was one of the toughest I’ve seen.  To put a bite sized piece of food on a toothpick that has to be packed with flavor has to be tough!  The winner will win immunity and $20k in cash!  We watch these episodes but do we realize how really really hard they are to pull off? 

There were really some creative and ingenious dishes

The bottom three, Alex, Ed and Kelly were not surprising.  I think that from what we’ve seen and what we’ve heard from the other cheftestants, Alex is a weak chef and one of those who most certainly should have been sent home before Tamesha. 

The top three were Stephen, Kevin and our winner, Angelo.  Tough challenge so no easy feat to be in the top three.  Angelo wins not only immunity but $20,000 cash!  Wow! 

Kevin is bitter! He says, “If they like Chinese food all the time, ……”  Personally, I prefer chefs who are supportive of one another, I know that this is a competition but as we’ve seen in last season’s chefs, being supportive and respectful to one another doesn’t hinder you on Top Chef, it, in fact seems to come back and reward you in the end. 

A Top Chef isn’t just about what the food tastes like, we know from past seasons that typically the winner of top chef has proven to be a class act! 

The elimination challenge is pretty straight forward, they are not allowed to choose their protein but they are simply making lunch, a Power Lunch at The Palm Restaurant in DC, the chefs drew knives to decide who gets which protein and there is more rushing to shop.

Getting on my nerves most of all is Kelly!  She drew the porterhouse steak knife and was paired with Amanda who drew the same.  Upon arrival at The Palm, Amanda, (who I’m not all that fond of either) had realized she did not bring any salt and pepper with her.   Not being completely aware of the protocol, I wonder if it is the chef’s responsibility to bring something as basic as salt and pepper to a restaurant that would clearly have salt and pepper on site.  Quite simply Kelly is a bitch for not allowing Amanda to use her salt and it will clearly come back to haunt her!

Andrea is beginning to get on my nerves with her complaining every week!   Last week she felt slighted because she personally knew the guest judge, this week it’s a problem with her protein!  Andrea is also seen in an interview gossiping about the relationship between Tiffany and Ed.  What is the problem with these two chefs being friends?  Andrea is not only a bitch, she is very immature! 

Amanda has never served a porterhouse?  I found that tough to believe but to remedy the situation she cuts it down to a Filet mignon and a New York.  Kelly finds another reason to bitch about her competitor and rightly states that it is no longer a porterhouse, however, nothing in the rules stated that the steak had to be prepared in its original condition.  Cutting a steak  is clearly allowed. 

Back at the house for the evening, Alex admits to his housemates that he still doesn’t know what to make.  It seemed clear to me at that point that Alex had not prepared a pea puree but Kenny mentions that Ed had made a pea puree.

Bruce Bozzi of the Palm Restaurant gives the Chef’s a little pep talk and lets them know that the winning dish will be on the menu as well as their face in a characature on the wall alongside the rich and famous!

As the chefs begin to prepare their final plates at The Palm, Ed lost his pea puree.  Alex says he never saw Ed’s pea puree.  Suddenly Alex has a pea puree.  Chef’s confirm that Alex did not make the pea puree the day before.  These are facts from what we’ve seen in this episode.  Having never made a pea puree, I don’t know what the process is but experienced chef, Kenny tells us that Alex clearly did not have enough time to make a pea puree at The Palm.  Again, we do know that Alex didn’t make it on preparation day in the top chef kitchen the day before.  We’ll get back to Alex.

I noticed that every season there are a few challenges that Chef Tom eats in the kitchen.  I’m not sure why that is, maybe Tom didn’t want to hang with the politicians and the news people.  I would completely understand that.  Is it possible that Chef Tom wants to see how these chef’s operate, which ones fall apart under pressure.  Is this part of the judging?  Tom says they were sloppy but we don’t get much feedback from the head judge at this point. 

The talk in the kitchen is about Alex stealing the pea puree.  Someone has to know this for sure, a cameraman, reviewing the videotape has to give the answer.  We know for a fact that Alex didn’t buy the ingredients to make a pea puree and he didn’t make it at the top chef kitchens on day one, he would have had to whip it together on site, but did he have the ingredients with him to do that?  Was he able to utilize the ingredients from the Palm and throw it together there?   Amanda didn’t even have salt because she didn’t bring it with her, so how was Alex able to put together a pea puree without any advanced planning? 

Judges table, Alex, Tiffany and Ed are called out first, these are the top three.  Alex is called out about how great his pea puree was and wins the challenge.  Ed, standing next to him knowing that Alex won with that pea puree had to be extremely frustrating.  Would Ed have been the winner if the pea puree was on his plate where it rightfully belonged? 

By the way, Art Smith, the guest judge, looks AMAZING!  He has lost a lot of weight. 

Bottom three are:  Kelly, Andrea and Kevin. 

Kevin’s dish had too much heat.  Then we get the famous “did you taste it?” question from Gail Simmons…argh!  I hate when judges ask that question, it is so stupid!  What are they going to say?  Kevin overcooked his meat and according to Chef Art Smith, the bones weren’t cleaned?  Nothing held the dish together. 

Andrea is full of excuses, Swordfish is not a favorite or something that she normally cooked.  But the judges thought that her Cuscus was overcooked – and Chef Tom said that the mustard and vanilla bean flavorings just weren’t singing well together.

Kelly – Porterhouse too salty, she was so selfish and not wanting to share the salt with Angela – she used it all so that she wouldn’t have to share it with Amanda and it came back to bite her in the ass.  Kelly breaks down crying in the back room as they wait to see who goes home.  She claims that she was trying to give the judges what they want and provide aggressive flavors, sorry Kelly your salty mess was not considered aggressive.  I’m no chef, but even I know that you can always add salt, you can never take it away so if you’re selfish and insist on using all the salt you brought with you, you deserve to go home!  Karma is a bitch – huh Kelly?   If you’re so insistent on slamming Angela, let her bury herself, give her the salt and let your food stand for itself! 

The fact that Top Chef never address’s the stolen pea puree that just happened to be the key to Alex winning this challenge is what makes me so crazy!  The cameras had to have caught where that Pea puree that Alex used had come from.  Was it in the cooler pre-made or did Alex whip that up on the spot?  According to Kenny, there wasn’t enough time at the Palm to prepare a pea puree.

In the end, neither of the two forerunners, Kenny or Angelo are in the top or the bottom, they both fall in the middle of this challenge. 

Going home – Andrea is gone!  I wish it had been Kelly, I no longer like her.  I’m just really glad that the stolen pea puree wasn’t responsible for someone going home but it is still frustrating that it was responsible for the winning dish and was never addressed at all by the judges/producers.

I read Chef Tom Colicchio does go into the pea puree incident in detail.  I was surprised to learn that the judges had no idea about this situation at all before during or after the episode and only learned of it today.  In the end, that pea puree has to be somewhere.  If they returned to the Top Chef kitchens and found it there, it would solve the mystery and put rest any rumors that Alex is a snake.  If we know for a fact that the puree made it to The Palm, and Alex is the only one serving one, it is pretty clear to me.

I am pretty disappointed that the Top Chef producers chose to ignore the situation and I get why Ed didn’t say anything directly to Alex, however, this should  have been discussed, explored and investigated.  Top Chef continues to tell us that this competition prides itself on their standards and adhering to rules, why wasn’t this addressed?  Chef Tom basically says we have to deal with it and move on, at this point, what else can anyone do?  I also noticed that Chef Tom was right there watching the drama unfold as Ed runs around looking for the missing pea puree yet in his blog notes he knew nothing about this whole incident. 

Top Chef Producers show enough evidence to make people believe that Alex did the unthinkable then chose to ignore the situation.  Was it editing?  Is there footage showing Alex preparing his very own pea puree from scratch?  They show Alex digging through the cooler then out of nowhere coming away with a puree.  They also show Alex lying about his knowledge of what Ed was making, in a flashback we see Kenny telling Alex about the pea puree.  Additionally, Alex never actually denied taking it!  I don’t think that is ethical at all because they’re certainly allowing it to appear as though Alex acted inappropriately yet they allowed it to unfold without any intervention.

Should Ed have said something or formerly complained about this situation?  Maybe, maybe not but it should not have been ignored, particularly when it did affect the outcome of the challenge. 

Finally, we are, once again missing Chef Eric Ripert without any explanation.  He was introduced as the regular judge for the season, yet we’ve only seen him once or twice. 

Until Next Time……..

    I can’t drink the Iced Tea…

    gaah Gaah GAAH…

    🙂

  2. anitabee says:

    Why didn’t Ed confront Alex? I kept waiting and waiting. I sure as hell would stand by and let a coworker take credit for my work.

    And it is obvious that Bravo has the footage to see if Alex did or did not make that puree. Why hang him out to dry like that? Alex is now and forever will be known as that chef from Season 7 that stole another chef dish. There isn’t much worse to be known in public as a thief.

    Maybe he can hook up with Teresa G. to ask for tips on how to do that.

    • anitabee says:

      Meant “sure as hell would NOT stand by”

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      There was an incident on Next Foodnetwork Star where a contestant lied about his background – it didn’t come out until there were only 2 contestants were left. So they told him he had to leave and the person who left the week before came back. So maybe the pea puree will come up.

  3. NMhousewife says:

    Amazing Lynn you got this blog out so quick! As always love your opinions although they sometimes differ from mine. I actually have felt Kelly has shown herself to be a very strong chef so far and have not had an issue with her personality, not like Amanda’s personality that is a bit overbearing, but I agree that she really made a bad decision not working together by just sharing a little salt. I get the impression from Kelly’s and other chef’s comments that Amanda is getting on their last nerve, so she thought she would teach her a lesson, and of course didn’t work out the way she thought it would.

    I totally agree with the frustration with editing giving the impression that Alex stole the puree and not following up on what really happened. Deep down I think he did it, but it is almost unbelievable the audacity of it. I would have suspected that any other villian would have hid it or thrown it away on the sly, but to actually use it in front of everybody as part of his dish?! Which then makes me feel as though….maybe that WAS his own puree and he was innocent… I am very confused. I thought for sure they would show footage of everyone getting back to their original kitchen and Ed would have found his puree left on the table or something. I really wish this would be resolved.

    Also Kenny really bugs me with his idea that he is the best chef in the competition, although I don’t think he has done any better than some of the other chefs. The competitions where other contestants get to judge their peers I don’t find very threatening overall because really it is based on the real judge’s opinion. I get the impression, the judges are listening to see how fairly they judge and how close they are to their own opinions. I don’t believe the others are trying to sabotage Kenny at all, even though most agreed that Kenny’s meal was not very good, as the main judges certainly agreed with that opinion. That’s all from me. Can’t wait til the morning for more Top Chef comments from you all!

    Also I find that Angelo doesn’t bug me as much as he bugs others, at least not so far. Kenny is doing a much better job of that.

    • anitabee says:

      Kenny’s problem is that although he is a great Chef he isn’t as great a Chef as he thinks he is.

      Angelo wins more so Angelo is the better Chef up to this point.

    • Jenni says:

      I think Kenny just isn’t as consistantly good as Angelo.

      • MAMAZ says:

        I also think Kelly has been one of the better chefs this season. But I hate when they try to sabotage each other. She should have shared the salt.

        Did or didn’t Alex steal the pea puree? If he didn’t then TC did him a disservice. They sure made it look like he did. But I would think that stealing another chefs food and serving it as your own would be grounds for disqualification. And I agree with Lynn that with both Tom and the cameras in the kitchen it’s hard to imagine that they didn’t catch him either stealing or making a pea puree.

        So glad Andre’s gone.

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      I don’t know if anyone remembers when Ed was asking Steven if he saw the puree. Steven said that his fish was on top of the pea puree in the cooler so Ed DID bring it on site. Pea purees don’t just go missing. Very shady.

      • MickeyMouth says:

        I am more inclined to believe that a Bravo producer chucked the pea purée in the can in order to stimulate a conflict for their story line. Not the first time, remember they used a sick child on RHONJ to bring Danielle to the Brownstone and conflict to their show.

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          Hmmm, interesting theory and now that you mentioned it I wouldn’t put it past them.

          I don’t beleive for a second the producers don’t ultimately know what happened. If there was a second puree it would have turned up (unless of course you are correct that they disposed of it to insight drama) .

          They need the resolve this for the viewers and the two chefs involved, if they fail to the integrity of the show will be forever lost.

        • PaganChick says:

          There was also an incident in I believe the third season when they brought in a guest judge but kept referring to her as just a food blogger and read her unedited notes to the contestants just to cause conflict. That was a mark against that woman’s career and she was actually a pretty well known contributor several major magazines. And most of the notes they read on air never even made it to her final review of the contestants dishes.
          And in the second season with the “head shaving” incident, the edited it to make it look like Elia (I believe) was a completely innocent bystander when in actuality she didn’t shave her head until AFTER the attack on Marcel.
          So, yeah, I totally wouldn’t put it past the producers to sabotage the guy in order to create drama.

  4. Ali's Mom says:

    I was thinking that one of the reasons that Tom was in the kitchen during, and eating was because the owner of the establisment said that no one had ever cooked in the kitchen other than the Chef and staff….maybe watching over everything?? I don’t know. Also the swordfish along with the vanilla suace just sounds gross. I love swordfish. It is a steak like piece of meat but if prepared right is very good. Also couscous is the EASIEST thing in the world to make, so I can’t understand messing that up. I don’t really care for any of the chefs on this season but I imagine that we will see Angelo and possibly Kenny at the finals. But again who knows.

    • MAMAZ says:

      I has salmon in a vanilla sauce once. It wasn’t very good. I can’timagine adding mustard to it!

  5. Need a Hobby says:

    FWIW, I think the night before at the house when Alex was saying he didn’t know what he was going to do, Alex also said he had “this thing with peas.” Which is what prompted the others to tell Alex that Ed had a pea puree.

    In the kitchen, as I recall, Alex said he hadn’t seen Ed’s puree when Ed was asking.

    It’s evident that the other chefs have suspicions about Alex, but we don’t know what happened. And apparently none of them had a strong enough basis to actually accuse Alex.

    • Jenni says:

      There was a shot, I think, of a pot filled with a clear liquid and already shucked peas from the 2nd day. I am not sure who the pot belonged to, but it was not already pureed (SP?). That shot made me think that Alex might have really made his own…

  6. Adgirl says:

    Pea-gate ugh.
    I don’t care for Alex but I have a hard time believing anyone invited to TC would have the gall to steal another chef’s prepared food and pretend it was their own. Even if they wanted to, the cameras and the chaos of chefs running around the kitchen would dissuade most people. And didn’t Ed say there were 3 containers? That would be tough to steal and unwrap 3 containers without detection!
    The other thing is Alex’s protein was perfectly prepared so I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.
    Soooo – where ARE the containers? Back at the TC kitchen??
    That was one of the weirdest occurances I’ve ever seen on the show. Except the head shaving (S2?). Now that was a great season!

    • MAMAZ says:

      I agree that it seems unlikely that someone would try to steal another chef’s food and pass it off as his own. So why did TC make Alex look guilty? Maybe Alex threw Ed’s puree out. Or possibly somone else threw it out knowing it would look like Alex stole it.

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      Steven even said that the purees were under his fish in the cooler so they were brought to The Palm.

  7. TweetMaxine says:

    I have it on good authority that Jill Zarin will make a guest appearance on Bethenny’s show this Thursday. This will of course rile the fans on this blog but it should prove very interesting. Maybe Jill and Bethenny will finally make up? Watch and find out!

  8. MAMAZ says:

    Lynn – I accidently hit 2 stars for poor when I went to vote. Too early in the morning. Sorry. I didn’t know if you saw individual votes or not and didn’t want you to think anyone rated your blog as poor. 😦

  9. Stormy says:

    Good Morning everyone. New here!
    “Millionaire Matchmaker” Patti Stanger is being accused of “backstabbing” Hamptons hubby huntress Cheryl Mercuris, who paid $500,000 for a two-week summer rental. After Mercuris refused to appear on HLN’s “Joy Behar Show” with Stanger, the matchmaker claimed the Florida single mom had begged to be on Stanger’s Bravo reality show. Stanger advised her to manhunt in Manhattan by going to Financial District bars after the closing bell and waiting for guys to come out of the bathroom. But Mercuris said, “I’d never go on that show. I’m busy working and would never waste my time that way.”

  10. I fell asleep right before Judge’s Table and the last thing I remember was the darn teaser about the pea puree!
    Would the answer be in the Bravo Blogs??
    That’s just nuts.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      No answer in the blogs even though Tom talked about it.

      The viewers are totally lit up about this- and for the most part beleive Alex did steal the puree.

  11. moriasheehan says:

    I am going to re-watch the TC episode since I dozed off and missed the pea drama. I must say, if someone thought Alex had stolen it, they should have said something. We all know that stuff gets forgotten and left behind. Maybe at the reunion we will find out.
    WoA- once again Jac uses her naked body and the judges buy into it. I also thought she was lying about masturbating, standing up. Miles art I actually liked as I have seen the wall/door punching. (First time when Mr. punched the door, thinking it was hollow, he broke 6 bones in his hand. Next time he used ashtray to put hole in wall.) WHY DO GUYS DO THIS SHIT? Color me baffled.

    • Adgirl says:

      Haha! I know most people would think this was awful but ex-Mr Adgirl broke his hand punching a kitchen cabinet door. It was Valentine’s Day (and my birthday) and we were disagreeing about the restaurant then oopsy there goes the fist! We were lunatic passionate kids living in an ancient house. Ex-Mr discovered they built sturdy cabinets in the good old days.
      Guys DO THIS SHIT because we (uh-em) ladies have big trash mouths when we are telling these guys how terrible they are. At least I was that way. Boy was I a bitch!!

  12. MickeyMouth says:

    Pea Puree is Top Chefs Satchels of Gold. 🙂
    Someone knows the answer.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      Maybe this is Bravo’s new gimmick, to leave us with one unanswered question at a time to keep us from talking.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      It’s like an Agatha Christie mystery — The Pea Puree Incident

      I think they hid the puree just to make everyone say pea puree about a zillion times. Just hearing it over and over had me laughing.

  13. moriasheehan says:

    Oh, BTW, 3 episodes and counting, since my last viewing of RHONJ. Do I get a badge?

  14. http://www.bravotv.com/top-chef/blogs/tom-colicchio/the-peas-that-split?page=0%2C0

    Colicchio’s blog answer’s some long time questions, but says “we will never know” about pea-gate. THAT’S JUST WRONG!

    • I found this comment in the blog. This is hilarious & I can imagine them scraping pea-puree off the wall at The Palm for years & wondering what the heck is going-on.
      (copied) jae1837

      I really like this show ever since I was the entire season 2 over a marathon weekend three or four years ago. I have not missed a season yet. Having said that, I feel that letting Alex win without presenting proof to the viewers is pretty low. Either he stole Ed’s Pea Puree or he did not. tmelange makes an excellent point. What the heck is the point of the cameras if not to at least check ethical issues such as this one? The reasoning my Chef Colicchio is at best poor and at worst disingenuous. Personally, I think Alex stole the Pea Puree and the producers let him get away with it to generate a controversy and get the attention of potential viewers. So much for professional integrity and now I will just watch some show on Food Network. Any time I am at the Palm at D.C., I will order some peas or pea puree and “accidentally” mess-up that picture.

      • LynnNChicago says:

        Excellent comment, I love it! So true, didn’t producers realize that airing it the way they did would make people question the integrity of the show? Chef Tom knows it but its too late for him to do anything about it.

        • Maryla says:

          I have to think that Chef Tom knew about it then too. He was in the kitchen. I guess this is how they keep viewers roped in through to the reunion — to find out about the scandals. But for a show like Top Chef, that I thought had integrity and a certain level of quality, I’m disappointed.

          Also, maybe be good to know if Sen. Warner or Savannah Guthrie or one of the other tasters could return to The Palm to sample the dish again and see if the puree is of the caliber they originally tasted.

          Alex wouldn’t be able to write out the recipe if he didn’t actually make the dish.

    • Fabulous Earth says:

      UGH! @ the nerve and gall of Leakes!

      SMDH @ Harris and other “charitable foundations” that pay reality “celebrities” (flight and $2000 a night hotels) to appear at functions. ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? REALLY? NO, REALLY?? These organizations seem just as desperate and low as the “stars” themselves. Disgusting!

      • moriasheehan says:

        shows that the money we donate goes to allow over privileged bitches even more perks. THIS WAS FOR BREAST CANCER, LADIES! I think I will continue to support PBS and Humane Society. They will get all my “charitable” donations. BTW…I noticed in an article posted here a couple of days ago, that Ladybugs is NOT a recognized tax free charity, so they do not have any accountability for funds that are donated.

        • Fabulous Earth says:

          HI-FIVE MORI!!!!

          Yes, I’m starting to rethink the organizations I donate to. I agree about PBS also, I recently added them my list of orgs to support.

          BTW, I made a small donation to Ladybug and it does indeed go to St. Josephs Children Hospital (they have the Project Ladybug Pediatric Hematology Oncology program). I just pulled the letter out that I received from them after I donated and it does state at the end of the letter:
          According to the 1993 Budget Reconciliation Act, your contribution qualifies for a full charitable deduction. No significant goods or services have been exchanged in consideration of this gift. This is your official receipt. Please keep this letter for tax purposes.

          • moriasheehan says:

            It did say in the article that Tax Free Status had been applied for. Glad to hear they received it. I withdraw my statement above about Ladybug.

            • Fabulous Earth says:

              It’s good that you question it! We should always question these things – ESPECIALLY in this day and age.

          • klmh says:

            Charitynavigator.org is a good source for charity listings and it will break down in percentages the amount given the cause you support. It will also give other costs incurred by your charity, like salary, mailings etc.

          • moriasheehan says:

            It’s Moria, ok? like “more ee ahh”. means sacred stone in Gaelic and beloved of God in Hebrew.

        • Quincy IL says:

          The salaries that most of the national charities pay their CEO is so large that it makes one wonder.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        NeNe got what she deserved and while you can change your mind when at a restaurant, she signed a contract and will have to justify her actions in court. Too bad she is a broke ass bitch and Ms Harris will likely see nothing in terms of a financial settlement….. Atlanta was the trash before New Jersey came on board – both should be on a barge heading out into the ocean…..

        • twoile says:

          Looks like NN subscribes 2 the adage “any publicity is good publicity” ……she is going 2 realize it ain’t necessarily so. The AT crew 1st season certainly was a heads-up 2 the subsequent decline into the “Springer/Maury” gendre(sic).

          • Quincy IL says:

    Thanks for the new blog Lynn. 5 stars as usual. When we chatted about BB before the season started I didn’t realize three shows per week equal three blogs. With all the other shows that you blog for us you’re very busy. It’s appreciated very much.

    I laugh at Matt the Mensa man. So much for that! I can’t believe he didn’t have a back up plan. It seems like none of the HOH’s have made any good choices. I’m hoping Brittney makes HOH this week. She’s a little bitchy but I like her.

    • tuzentswurth says:

      Yes, really Lynn, great job, I love it here, and love and thank you and the posters for the humor, wit and intelligence. How do you find the time to do this?????? I can hardly keep up with the reading and laughing.

    DC housewife gossip–http://absurdtosublime.net/2010/07/29/dc-housewives-catherine-ommanney-kisses-and-tells/

  17. boston02127 says:

    re: Above link
    DC Housewives’ Catherine Ommanney Kisses and Tells Michaele Salahi won’t be the only one bringing the drama to the Real Housewives of Washington DC, premiering August 5 on Bravo. Catherine Davies Ommanney carries all the necessary prerequisites for bring the drama.

    I had no intention of ever saying what happened that night,” said Catherine.
    “The only reason I am is because somebody else squealed and I’m being absolutely hounded. Nothing happened and nothing ever is going to happen. We had a great time and a fun evening. I’ve committed no crime and nor has he.”

    She moved to the Washington DC area in 2008. She has been married to a White House photographer for less than a year, they are already separated. Having Bravo cameras following one around couldn’t possibly have helped. Production seems hard on most housewives marriages. Of course, the fact that her husband works for President Obama and Catherine is all about praising George Bush and scolding the current President for a “lack of manners” couldn’t help either.

      Whatever. It hasn’t even begun and already I hate every housewife on RHDC. I doubt I’ll be watching.

      But this @#$%&. I was turned off when she said “I know you’re American, but let’s have some manners”. She’s like Luann on steroids. Maybe we’ll be lucky and she’ll get deported soon.

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        I know I won’t be watching, the Salahi’s are enough to put me off of the show; but having seen some of the trailers, it seems like the rest of of them are every bit as annoying.

        The lady from England is the one with bad manners.

  18. Capiche says:

    I agree with Lynn and some of the other posters on pea-puree gate. Usually, I have a strong opinion but I just don’t know if Alex stole Ed’s pea puree or not. The editing, as was pointed out, sure made it seem so but I can’t believe Alex, slick as he is, would have the gall to do so. Again, where were the cameras? And if he didn’t steal Ed’s pea puree, then the editing did him a disservice unless he did then he shouldn’t even be in the competition. Maybe next week’s episode will answer the whodunit of the pea puree mystery at The Palm….And I read Tom’s blog and one of his instances when he said Alex wouldn’t have known Ed was doing pea puree or something was wrong. Kenny mumbled it in the kitchen to Alex the night before. Wow. I had to watch the episode twice and I still have no clue.

    I loved Tiffany’s face when the judges told Alex they loved the pea puree and of course, she just had to mention it to the other cheftestants back in the stew room. All their faces were like mmhh-hhmm. Too funny. And her “I got a man” declaration in her confessional did not come off convincing to me. She was all upset about Ed’s pea puree gone missing too.

    As to the other competition, I thought this week’s quickfire challenge was great, hated that Angelo won. I couldn’t stand the cadre of NBC personalities that they trudged out for the judging. I mean, come on! The chefs are doing a power lunch and these bird-like figures at the table are worried about calories and portion and butter. Do they have any frickin’ clue what a power lunch is? It’s not a damn salad! And this is Top Chef! Geez. No wonder Tom chose to ate and enjoy his food in the kitchen. Next time they need more foodies and less talkies judging.

    My take on Kenny. I like him but he needs to get over himself and quick. I think he is a great chef, he just trips up himself with the too-muchness of his dish. He needs to take a cue from Angelo’s game; simple, elegant and tasteful. Love that you can tuile an eggplant, and you can do everything three or four ways but how does the food taste?! That’s the question, Kenny!

    How is Stephen still in this competition? Like seriously?

    I was so disturbed about pea-puree gate that I half-watched Work of Art. But from what I did see, Miles is a douche. And Jacqueline is a narcissist. And Abdi is internally unsure and conflicted. Oh, wait. That was evident in other episodes? Ok. Work of Art has hit a rut. It started strong but it’s losing me.

    • anitabee says:

      How about Amanda…why is her smug face still on the show?

  19. Olivia says:

    O/T but I had to share this. This is the “caliber of performance” that Bravo may be considering as the next NJ Housewife. Take note of the “razor in the apple” comment which is shocking in the delivery. Pimps, felons, frauds, ho bags, liars, forgers, and seriously disturbed people seem to shine in Bravo’s firmament of “stars”.

    http://deathby1000papercuts.com/2010/07/real-housewives-of-new-jersey-whos-more-devious-danielle-staub-kim-g-or-andy-cohen/

    This woman is truly the bottom of any barrel so far. Even outmatches Theresa and Danielle in that department.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      IMO, Kim G isn’t trying to stir the pot as much as she is trying to see what “both sides” are feeling. The whole pressing charges was interesting because to Danielle she said do something (stop bitching so much Danielle) and to Jacq she said that her daughter did commit assault (stop blaming Danielle for your daughter’s bad behavior). She supports both their points of view and wasn’t about to take a side because, really that is so immature and high school and Kim G doesn’t play those games. She has manners, is more worldly and practices social graciousness. Her challenge/role was to bridge the two sides because it was getting so boring to watch the mobsterettes vs the paranoid big talking tramp de jour.

      I just don’t think she is a pot stirrer because Bravo has RHONJ in the blender set on puree!

    • Fabulous Earth says:

      S.M.D.H.!

      I watched the videos and the ones linked on that page. This bothers me. But you know what? To be perfectly honest, what bothers me more is that I’ve resumed watching this show when I walked away from it before. What does say about ME? I’m confused now. DAMMIT! I need to re-evaluate MYSELF, seriously! SMDH @ myself! *sigh*

    • Sha2000 says:

      I have to disagree Olivia. Putting out a sex tape when you are 47 & have two impressionable teenage daughters is hitting the bottom in my book. I’m actually starting to like both Kim’s, they are funny & add an ingredient to the that’s neither strictly the Manzo side or Danielle. The show needed something extra & these ladies stirring the pot are it. I hope they are added to this limited cast; all versus Danielle is quite boring; besides Kim G is living big and it’s fun to watch, she is not pretending to be something shes not like all the rest with the exception of perhaps Caroline.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      I think both the Kims are are snakes and reek of desperation. Kim G isn’t even officially a housewife and already we’ve seen her ass and sad attempts at pole dancing not to mention her very obvious re-enactments of the show stoppers.

      Ass-ley calls D-bag “square tits”- watch Kim G call her “square tits”.

      Jack-hole-lynn and Gorilla Guidice chase Danielle through a country club- watch Kim G chase her out of a restaurant.

      Teresa flips a table-watch Kim G ‘flip the bird’.

      I don’t care for either of them. I don’t think they bring anything to the fold which is surprising given who the other housewifes are. A fruit fly has more depth than the women on this show, with perhaps the only exception being Caroline- unfortunately unlike a fruit fly these women have been around for longer than 37 days.

      I will have to check that out. Her Bravo comments page is glowing- I had to stop reading because it was actually making me angry. I said before, this woman has a following of sheeple fans, I just can’t beleive there are people who feel sorry for her and defend her actions.

He could have killed one your children!!! Do you still want to worship these criminals? …She didnt even write that book!! Teresa…How do you justify spending 11 million dollars of other peoples money when you claim in the court documents to only make $79,000 per year? Your fans are like the Manson Family or the Jim Jones followers.. It’s so bizarre… You say us “haters” need a life…look at yourselves worshiping this arrogant criminal.. It’s insane!!

    Hi Lynn great blog as always.
    Re: Big Brother according to the spoilers that I have read Matt & Ragen made a deal when they were the last two standing for the HOH competition. I however did not see this on the show ( I guess editing) So Anyway Ragen and Matt’s deal was that if Ragen gave in that Matt would not put Breandon & Rachel up because Regan liked them. Anyway Matt is an idiot for not putting both Breandon & Rachel up.

    Now on Top Chef I am very dissapointed in how the integrity of the show is being jeopardized. I truly believe the Producers now what happend and perhaps expected Ed to become aggresive at judge’s table and let the pea incident be known. But Ed didn’t do that he is too nice and besides you never know how the judges will react. I really feel like Alex’s mug should not go up on the Palm’s resturant if there is a cloud of doubt on his “winning dish”. If I were Alex I would want this to be cleared up if I had done nothing wrong. I am sad to see Andrea go I liked her and again feel the judges decisions are weird one because Padma said she like Andrea’s dish it was not the best but it was not the worse, Kelly’s dish was not edible due to the salt. I like Kelly I think she is a good chef but she did act like a Bitch and Karma got her at the end. I doubt the Voltaggio brother’s would’ve denied Robin salt if she needed it even though they disliked her. Anyway sorry for the long rant.

  23. WindyCityWondering says:

    I am wondering why Bravo is continuing to let it’s viewers down with the calibre of the “stars” they are giving us. When did they decide we want to see stupid people doing bad things? Liars, thieves, haters, forgers, etc…. seriously! A little drama is fine but watching and then reading nasty blogs by these people who justify their behavior (or totally ignore it or blame it on someone else) is getting tiresome….

    • Fabulous Earth says:

      WCW asks “When did they decide we want to see stupid people doing bad things?”

      Answer: When the ratings kept going up. I think as long as we keep watching, the worse it will get and so on and so on…until someone really gets hurt (ala Jenny Jones).

      I just wrote a few lines up how I’m starting to question my own damn self for keeping up with this travesty. Are we turning into Roman society where we watch (in disgust and also excitement) at the tearing of limbs, blood and gore in the stadium? Is that what we’re becoming? Hell, IS THAT WHAT I’M BECOMING????? Shit!! I think I need to unplug from the Matrix for a bit.

      But how can I when I enjoy it a lil’? FUCK! *embarrassed*

      • sugarmagnolia10 says:

        I’m with you on that one…what does it say about me? Honestly, I don’t really enjoy it anymore. If it excites any emotion, it’s usually anger or disbelief on grown women behaving in such a way. I am beyond mad about “pea-gate”. On the housewives, we know they are signing off to have everything shown, but none of the “bravolebrities” deserve to be misrepresented. If Alex didn’t steal the puree, then shame shame shame on the producers for manufacturing a drama like this. They have a responsibility to be fair to people…if not by contract then by an integrity that should exist between people. I have a friend who told me a year ago that he thought Andy Cohen was the devil. He thinks that anyone who makes his living on humiliating and staging situations that bring out the worst in people had to be evil. At first I thought he was exaggerating, but a year later, I think he was right. Andy seems to feed on it, laugh about it, and doesn’t really seem to understand that these are REAL people. I sure hope he’s getting a good tan in the Hamptons…..

    • Olivia says:

      I suppose you could say that we are as much at fault by continuing to watch these shows knowing full well that they are “fake” and populated with people who are willing to shuck their own integrity aside in order to become “famous”.

      The vulgar cast of “New Jersey Shore” has been elevated to a status that is unimaginable owing to behavior that is both cheap and thuggish “played” out by a cast that is barely able to form a coherent sentence. Uneducated, immoral, unmotivated and brutish, they have climbed to the top of the charts based solely on that appeal alone.

      After watching that video interview with Kim G, who thought it “amusing” to put a razor blade in an apple as a Halloween treat, was beyond the pale. This from a grown woman who was more than willing to meet the standards of the interviewer by “flipping the bird” for the camera and referring to herself as a “fun person”. This woman is mentally ill yet seems to be “hinting” that she is in “talks” with Bravo producers to become a possible new member of that insane group of women.

      However, with enough morons out there willing to sacrifice their image for a shot at “fame”, it is no wonder that there are Snooki types in this world standing in line to be considered a “star”.

  24. HD says:

    Correct me if I am wrong here but on Project Runway didn’t someone get sent home because they had fashion books? They took that seriously.

    I think they did not play back the tape because it was never mentioned to the judges. The camera people are their to film not intervene because someone might be cheating. Ed should have spoken up but since he was in the top three and technically had no proof, what could he do?

    Alex knows in his heart if he took that puree. And honestly when you are skilled at what you do, that will haunt you for the rest of your life. If you REALLY take your craft seriously. A real champion doesn’t like a fake win.

    • Fabulous Earth says:

    • anitabee says:

      That was back in the day when Bravo valued intergrity. Now they only value ratings at the expense of having women having mental breakdowns or making XXX porn dvds. It’s not like these women have children…NOT!

      • Olivia says:

        Bravo is pretty close to becoming the “porn channel of choice”, IMHO. While TLC, with its “Toddlers and Tiaras” reaching out for the pedophile crowd, and MTV with “Jersey Shore” playing to the “wannabe gansta’s and ho bag” set, Bravo is taking the slippery slide into another realm of broadcasting.

        Bared breasts, partially concealed penises, pole dancing, bathroom propositions, and male gigolos purchased by the hour, it is a new approach to “no holds barred” entertainment that describes the culture of today.

        Anything goes! Bring out the worst and watch the ratings climb! Cheapen the dialogue than sit back and wonder why the youth of today are no longer “respectful”.

        • anitabee says:

          I think this is what is wrong with Top Chef this season. This show is pretty straightforward. It’s just cooking and eliminations until there is a winner.

          This season though the challenges are mostly team or paired up challenges. Why? To create either romance or conflict. This is something the show hasn’t really had or needs. There is enough healthy competition without having to stir the pot.

          As an example we have Peagate. Really Bravo? Hide the truth from the judges??? How about the viewers???

          I guess as long as the ratings are high truth, honest competition, intregrity simply does not matter to Bravo.

          Unfortunately that is true. We should have seen where Bravo was going when we tuned in to be shown Ginger (Zarin) pooping all over the sofa.

    • Zarout! says:

      The executives and producers at Bravo have taken every single show into the gutter. It’s as if they think we wont watch unless there’s some sort of classless, trashy controversy. Um, hello??? How did shows like TC & The Real Housewives become popular in the first place? They didn’t start out so nasty & mean-spirited. I’m hoping they get the message when their ratings go down (although it doesn’t look like that’s happening yet).

  25. Olivia says:

    Just viewing Kim G lying on her back with her legs spread while a male dancer performs above her kind of erases the word “classy” from her resume. Bad enough we had to witness her buttcrack while undulating around the pole, or her buttcheeks when wearing a dress best described as a blouse, that removes all doubt that “classy” should ever be uttered in the same sentence when describing Kim G.

    “Classy” is not flipping the bird on camera or using the “f bomb” when being interviewed. Classy in the case of Kim G, who is a “champion flamethrower”, is equal to the blogger who refers to Theresa in the same manner. Does not exist. This woman is purported to be 54 yrs of age and is seriously nuts!

    • Quincy IL says:

      also…married, but separated.

      Her husband should divorce her pronto.

    • anitabee says:

      Oliva, I agree 1ooo% about grossness of Kim G.

      The fact that chazas like Jill Zarin, Kim G., Nene Leeks, Kim Z., Danielle,etc have millions of dollars is proof enough for me that the Devil is busy and at play at the Bravo Channel.

      • Olivia says:

        She has done everything within her power to get on that show. Tried first to become “friends” with Caroline who rebuffed her than moved on to Danielle where she was able to insert herself into the role of “friend” while carrying tales back to the Manzo’s via Jacqueline in order to gain a foothold into that world.

        I read on one blog that the night of the country club fashion show where Kim G was hosting the table that included Danielle, she spent a good portion of the evening moving between both that table and Theresa’s describing and repeating what Danielle was saying which must have been one of the reasons Theresa chose to confront her in the lobby.

        If you watch that segment, you see Danielle begin to exit the area after a few words with Theresa, but it is Kim G who hauls her back for more. Why? Knowing the bad blood that already existed are we to believe that Kim G had only “good intentions” when she acted like the “messenger” all evening”

        She did it for herself and the airtime she could achieve which makes any excuse that she was playing “peacemaker” all the more suspect.

        • Quincy IL says:

          Perhaps, the Manzos/Lauritas/Staubs will disappear next year from NJ Housewives and we will have Kim G duking it out with Elvira.

        • Sha2000 says:

          I still like the Kims. It’s so boring watching this limited “story” line. RHONJ IS trashy, but it dosen’t have to be boring and the Kims still have more class than Danielle-47 mother of 2 w/a sex tape & Teresa who’s lack of class is apparent every time she opens her mouth.

          • Olivia says:

            Nothing says “class” more than a slurring drunk and a 54 yr old woman egging houses and putting razor blades in apples for Halloween!

            The only “class” that emanates from that show is the one that Albie failed. Other than that, not so much.

            • Quincy IL says:

              Olivia, I love the way that you write.

            • Sha2000 says:

              No I’m not claiming that she has class…just no less than whats already on the show. As I said said before Danielle as a 47 year old mother mother of two marketing a sex tape of herself. The show is tacky in every way & will remain so unless we stop watching (& talking about it) completely. My point is, it’s good to have fresh people on. Jacqueline is boring with a capital Z…zzzzzzz, Caroline not much more exciting, Teresa & Danielle make me physically cringe, and I could careless about the sub-story lines of their families. We originally tuned in to see how these “ladies” live to find that the lavish life style is more faux than the finish on their walls. Teresa is broke with good reason & Jacqueline is not far behind, Danielle’s is unsustainable & Caroline seems to not be that high maintenance. Kim G. (like her or not) offers a reason watch; she has the money (a Bentley & a Ferrari ) & the lifestyle (like NY) that was the original reason to watch although its vicarious. As for “class”, well that’s for another network.

    • Char212 says:

      Can you imagine what was going through that male dancers head. I can just hear him thinking “Get me outta here”. She’s one women I wouldn’t want for a friend, you can’t trust her. Heaven forbid if she came to visit and you had dirty dishes in the sink and the next thing you hear around town is what a terrible house keeper you are.

      • Olivia says:

        On the tape she mentioned she paid each of the 3 male dancers $100.00. Of course they make more when the women leave “tips” in the G strings.

        Be interesting to know just what Caroline thinks of this woman, the mother of her son’s best friend, who appears not much different than Danielle in many respects and who now, since she has declared herself on “Team Manzo”, weaseling her way onto the show. Will she agree to film with her should this occur? Will she be able to explain away Kim G’s duplicity? Is she willing to invite this snake into her home now that Kim G is through with Danielle? Does Caroline think that putting razor blades in apples is just “Kim G being Kim G”?

        She had to have had good reasons for keeping Kim G at arms length for the 10 yrs that the two boys have been friends. If she now backtracks and embraces Kim G it would not surprise me all that much but it should would be a “stain” on the moral righteousness she portrays as the ” wise matriarch”. Something tells me that deep down she does not approve of Trashley in the least but instead puts up a front to cover for “the family” connections.

        Kim G is a nasty piece of work and allowing her over the threshold of any home is inviting the fox into the henhouse. Nothing good can come out of it.

          Char212 – I think it’s cute that you would be worried about dirty dishes in the sink. It sounds like something my mother would say. But I’m sure she’s much older than you. You must be living right if that’s the worst thing someone could say about you.
          These women have waaaaaay more to hide than a few dirty dishes!

    love love love it!

    • Fabulous Earth says:

      Yelling in my Jacqueline voice: “I’VE READ YOUR DEBT PAPERS THERESA!”

      rofl!

    • moriasheehan says:

      i love the $500,000.00 fine and or 5 years of jail for perjury!

    • Lovebeth says:

      This is very disturbing and sick. Teresa should be ashamed of herself. What about all these people with families to support? She needs to use the “faux Skinny Italian” book current and future earnings and every income to satisfy these debts. It is so obvious they overspend cuz I saw money owed to Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, what the hell are they buying?

      I have been wanting a nice Tag Heuer gold watch for two years now and this thief charged everything with no compassion for others.

      • Katie says:

        They defaulted as far back as 2003. Their financial mess is the result of habitual edacious spending, not a downturn in the economy. Maybe they should fire milania as their financial advisor.

        Anyone notice on the preview for next weeks show that Joe tells t-bag “no more parties”

        Maybe Joe has made a logical decision
        no mo munney= no fugulicious parties

        I see growth

    • cusi 77 says:

      There are something about the signatures… the same person signed for both, Joe and Teresa. (???)

    • klmh says:

      Goodness, their debt began in 2006, thru 2007 and 2008. Just can’t believe they were able to get a loan to rebuild, remodel and furnish that home! Except for the cash from family members, of course…
      I keep asking myself which family member can afford the additional 120,000/yr when anything after 13,000, which is the limit for gift giving, will be taxed accordingly.
      There must be another source…

      • vilzvet says:

        What a wretched list, I feel bad not only for the working class creditors but the banks too, since their losses impact other common folk like us. Saving this list to look at later at my leisure when I need to make myself sick.

    • sugarmagnolia10 says:

      Wow…Yikes…Shazam….Seeing it all in black and white is quite shocking. Why she doesn’t just fess up to her spending is beyond me….Sure, I get her business is all over the place, but you could find the same kind of documents on your neighbor if you so chose. Does she think she can only display the parts of her life that she wants to on TV and avoid the negative stuff? I want to vomit every time I read a comment in support of her and this bankruptcy. I think she’s being a bad spouse to Joe…clearly, he gets it, and by the look on his face, knew all of this backlash was coming. I also hate that Teresa thinks we are all stupid, like we can’t actually read the documents. Court docs are not “tabloids” you freaking over-sexed idiot!
      One thing I did find kinda funny….not a dime owed to student loans. Maybe it’s just my particular situation, but my husband I and are both paying off significant post-graduate loans…nearly as much as our mortgage each month. Maybe they were both fortunate to have their education paid for by their parents, but if not, it certainly shows that onyx and marble are more dear to the Guidices’ than education.

  27. Lovebeth says:

    Anitabee, Nene does not have millions of dollars she is broke! I read about the tape her husband Greg was planning to sue for alimony if they divorced cuz he spent 300k to put her on HW. They had to create a lifestyle of the wealthy to be on that show.

    • HD says:

      I venture to say there are only a few housewives with major self made money which would be Kandi, Bethenny and Vicki. The rest married money or they are broke just pretending to be rich.

      • twoile says:

        Jeanna of OC fame too belongs w/that group of HWs.

      • Need a Hobby says:

        Ramona had her own money from her business before she got married. She bought the house in the Hamptons on her own prior to her marriage.

    Interesting, especially since on RHONJ, they all seem to live in identical McMansions in identical McMansion neighborhoods, and all they do is drive to strip malls to visit places like the Brownstool and Borscht.

    • Sha2000 says:

      That’s why I moved from NY & the Tri-state area years ago. I lived in TX & loved the open feeling & now live in FL where I am amazed by the amount of animals & beauty I see around me.

      • error404 says:

        I worked on Celebration, FL. As weird and studio-set cheesy as it sometimes feels, there really was a noble effort to counter the sprawl that is devouring FL.

  29. Katie says:

    P.S. Look at the dates. Some are from 2005. The economy excuse doesn’t fly.

  30. jennifer says:

    I’m thinking maybe the pee puree will be address is reunion…like leave us all wondering on purpose. I think Steven didn’t confront him because unless there is footage (which Steven wouldn’t have) he can’t really prove it. I have made a pea puree, it doesn’t take that long so not sure why he couldn’t have made it but I agree he probably stole it which is shady and honestly I can’t believe he’d want to win that way or be know forever on TV as guy who stole annother chef’s dish. I bet we will see this play out further- maybe he did make it and they show that at reunion to make him not villan? or vica versa?

  31. moriasheehan says:

    For others who are unfamiliar with the acronyms used online. This link that someone (thank you whoever) posted did not include SMDH. i looked it up online it is shaking my damn head. I sent the blogger an email to update.

  33. jennifer says:

    Oh and what’s this I hear about Lis Hartwell only filming 3 episodes of RHOA because Broavo asked her to bring drama and they had “creative” differences?

    http://perezhilton.com/2010-07-28-real-housewife-is-out-of-hotlanta

    • moriasheehan says:

      she was the only RHOA that I liked. So now, I am not watching Atlanta, New Jersey.
      may watch DC and OC.
      will watch NYC.
      Bravo, are you paying attention? You are losing and alienating viewers. The intelligent ones anyway.
      i am having withdrawal pains, tho. thank goodness that you all keep me on my HW methadone with your blogs and posts.

      • Lovebeth says:

        I liked Lisa in the beginning of season one until she became a sname. She was the person that caused all the drama btw Nene and Kim. Now she and Nene are fighting and no longer friends. She is like Luann she goes with whoever will give her more screen time. She became lost in season 2 and I am sure that is why she was cut.

    • viki55 says:

      If that is true, most likely is, that means Jill was telling the truth when she said Bravo told her to bring the drama or she is out. I didn’t think she was capable of telling the truth. Dang, I think she will be back next year. She did what Bravo asked.

  34. icantstandthetoxicity says:
  35. Lovebeth says:

    Can you imagine if Bravo cut Jill? “After all the scheming and back stabbing I did and this is what I get?”

    I read she is going to be on Patti Skank’s show and I would be so happy if the editors cut her out she would be pissed!

    • Tootsie says:

      Jillsey and Patti Skank deserve each other. I would be fun to watch them talk over each other, push each other aside so they are the one in the shot. Two huge egos cannot fit on one screen.

  36. Squirrels says:

    Great recap Lynn. No surprise there, lol.

    Wow, what an episode on TC! I think everyone was frustrated watching the Pea puree scandal. First, I’d like to quote the discussion between Ed and Stephen.

    Ed – “Steve, did you take my pea puree out of that cooler? We had three….”
    Stephen – “No I did not. I did not touch your pea puree, my fish was on top Chef.”

    So, Steve never says he saw it, just that his stuff was at the top of the cooler. BTW, I enjoyed how Tiffany’s pronunciation made it sound like pee parade. Funny stuff.

    This brings me to one more point. What chef in their right mind would not only get this far and sabotage another, risking the humiliation of being tossed off the show for cheating AND ruining their own reputation in the real world. Would you patronize a restaurant whereby you knew the chef was a thief? I wouldn’t.

    Kelly indeed shot herself in the foot and deservedly so. I suppose this is one reason I enjoy TC Masters so much more. They are confident enough in their own creations to not be threatened by the other cheftestants. They understand working together in a cohesive manner keeps the kitchen calmer if not completely drama free, Rick Bayless not withstanding.

    Overall, those who are getting the boot are deserving of it. Amanda will go sooner than later I think, as she should. I would like to see Tifanny get to the final three. Angelo will most likely be there, too. Kenny? I’m on the fence. Confidence is one thing, a swelled head is quite another. Put up or shut up dude.

  37. Lovebeth says:

    here is Bethenny’s tweet:

    about to go live with @kinggayle on OPRAH Radio! XM 156 or Sirius 195

    @kinggayle was so much fun.I wish u could see how pretty she was in hot pink.really fun show.u should listen!
    about 1 hour ago via UberTwitter

    Back to the frenzy.after gayle king radio,ran in for a 5 min manicure before “body by bethenny” dvd meeting.I never get polish anyway.
    18 minutes ago via UberTwitter

    Can you imagine if Oprah gave Bethenny a cooking show on her network? Kelly and Jill will finally put their weapons down and check into a psych ward.

    • Ellabean says:

      “Kelly and Jill will finally put their weapons down and check into a psych ward.”

      That was so good, Love Beth!

  38. Squirrels says:

    Here is my post to Tom C. Who knows if it will make it onto the blog.

    Sorry Tom. I never thought I would say this, but TC has taken a nose dive in the integrity department. If Alex took the puree, his reputation on and off the show will be ruined and justifiably so. If not, TC has allowed him to look like a thief and that is not fair to him.

    Why make such a big deal out if this for the viewers without being able to resolve the issue?

    Is the show rigged? Have we been played for fools all this time? It certainly doesn’t help your reputation if as head judge and the man standing in the kitchen the entire time, you can’t or won’t address it by demanding the producers look into this mess.

    No bueno dude.

    Teresa let Gia have a facebook page.

    Gia’s Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/giagiudice ~ but no haters! only nice people! and I monitor it of course. xx

      Someone alert Danielle. I think someone is trying to move in on the best mom in the world title.

    • Fabulous Earth says:

      *smh* Is she even 13 yet? Facebook??? Wow. Just wow.

    • error404 says:

      can someone explain why these little girls list strangers as their “siblings”. I don’t get it.

      • Fabulous Earth says:

        me neither

      • HD says:

        That’s JUST the point! They are not mature enough to have a Facebook page if you are listing complete strangers as siblings! Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Teresa done set me off!

    • HD says:

      SMH! My daughter turned 14 in January and THEN I let her have a facebook page. Why the hell would she put her daughter out there like that! Shouldn’t her daughter at that age be doign more things than social networking? I always wondered about Teresa’s mental capacity. Now I see she is a natural born idiot!

      • Fabulous Earth says:

        You took the words right out of my mouth HD.

        • moriasheehan says:

          Note- T still lyin’. She says she will monitor…this was on the page,
          This profile is administered and maintained by Xist Talent. Any and all direct correspondence by Gia is reviewed and monitored by Maria DeSantis. T doesn’t mention that!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Gia isn’t legally old enough to have a facebook page! Oh well, it’s just the rules (ie – law) and who cares about that anyway……Why put your daughter in a place where people will say bad things about her mommy?

  40. Adios Lunatic says:

    Andy’s blog says the pea puree will be discussed during next week’s show, so looks to be some type of show down coming about who did what.

    Andy will be on the Colbert Report tonight so that should be interesting. Not sure how he can hold up with Stephen Colbert — seems like Andy may be a little too slow for quick witted Colbert.

    Kelly’s tweet–teds cleaning her toy closet, and i am resting for 20 mins. we are going to another business lunch. ted goes everywhere. i want her to learn

    Poor Thesaurus, she doesn’t have a shot. ( Her real name is Thadeus)

    • error404 says:

      teddy’s tweet: “been hiding in my closet for a hour now. Gag, she wants me to help her pluck a chicken. What do I care if she has a really big order due tomorrow, she should have started last night instead of forcing us to watch Nurse Jackie. And she burnt the popcorn! Oh, gotta run. I can hear her snoring now and this is my only chance to make it to the front door!”

    There’s a visual for the day………….

    • Squirrels says:

      “She even has her eyes set on which hunky pro she’d love to be matched with. ‘Who should I make them give me as a partner?,” she asks. “Maksim Chmerkovskiy is the hottest, no? And he’s feisty like me!’ ”

      What gets me is the “Who should I make them give me…” Um, making demands already T? Gee you are special – or delusional – especially delusional.

      Sheesh.

      • Adios Lunatic says:

        LOL –I’m surprised she’d consider dancing with anyone other than Juicy — isn’t that a little “skeevy?”

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        She probably is thinking she can keep the dancing costumes and then wear them to fabulous parties!

    • moriasheehan says:

      OMG, my retinas, the burning……no more visuals like that. please!

    • icantstandthetoxicity says:

      Will Bravo/NBC let her do “Dancing With The Stars”? She is still under contract with Bravo/NBC and she might not be allowed to “work” for another network.

      • Adios Lunatic says:

        I doubt there is much Bravo wouldn’t do for additional publicity for one of its shows. I’m sure they could figure out a way.

        • Char212 says:

          I think Maxin would be the perfect pro to pair her with if heaven forbid she gets on the show. He is short tempered and I’d love to see those two go at it.

          • Adios Lunatic says:

            I can see her being as bad as Kate Gosselin — both in Diva behavior (allegedly……) and in skill. Doesn’t she realize what she would be opening herself up for? The discussion boards on with comments on that hairline would explode.

            Would be great for Bravo, though. Lots and lots of potential new viewers.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        CONtracts mean nothing to Teresa…..

  46. Rabble Rouser says:

    I don’t know how many of you check out the Bravo message board- but on page 201 the the RHWNJ forum (it actually starts earlier but I wasn’t able to find the original post) found a website where Teresa stole her bankruptcy sermon.

    Plagiarism can now be added Gorilla Giudice’s skill set.

    • Squirrels says:

      She can’t rub two sticks together, never mind link two coherent words.

    • HD says:

      That part about all those famous/rich people that filed bankruptcy everyone has heard. I heard that in a speech before. I hope she was not thinking that we actually thought she came up with that part. At least I knew she didn’t.

      Ok, I joined the boards. I am lost. If I’m not out in 30 minutes tell my folks I love them!

  47. boston02127 says:

    @Squirrels–I was about to log off but I felt bad. I want to apologize to you for making fun of the name Thadeus. I did it because Kelly named her daughter that and calls her Teddy (like a boy). Thadeus is a beautiful and strong name and is really a nice name for a boy. I hope it didn’t hurt your feelings and if it did I’m very sorry. Shanna

        funny!

        • MAMAZ says:

          I like when girls use masculine names. I went to school with girl named Stevie. I know a Michelle that goes by Mickey. I even knew a girl whose actual given name was Tommy. I think it’s cute.

          • dumberries says:

            I love the names Sammy, Toni, and Bobbi for little girls too. They’re usually short for something more feminine. I think Teddy is cute for a girl, but Thadeus is quite unique for a girl!

              If you read Nancy Drew, her friends/cousins were Beth and George, both girls, so i always liked George, also Sydney and Max. Anne McCaffrey wrote a book called Merlin (he’s a dog) and the heroines name is James Carlyle Something. She went by Carly

  48. TweetMaxine says:

    To the chagrin of many on this blog, Jill Zarin will make an appearance on Bethenny’s show this Thursday. My sources tell me that both parties have kept thisa big secret. They even kept it from the other castmates during the reunion show! This should make for great TV tonight!

    • HD says:

      You seriously have a mental problem. What kind of sick individual continues to post the same stuff and no one believes them. Something is mentally wrong with you. What kind of life do you have? Go for a walk, tend a garden, enjoy life but honey, this is not living when all you can do is live in a world of imagination in a weak attempt to garner attention for yourself through the lives of two women who you don’t know and never will know. Go out and live and create your own drama but this is not it. You need help! I find people like you disturbing.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      To the chagrin of TM, B gave birth to a baby girl one day after TM announced the birth of a baby boy.

      To top that off, eager publicity hound JZ fell for the TM’s impeccably sourced scoop (fresh from TM’s butt) and posted it on her FB. Additionally, during one of JZ’s “shopping” trips in which she (allegedly) “persuades” trembling shopkeepers to give her freebies (or else), she posed for photogs at a shop with a onesie. Subtle as a jackhammer is our JZ.

      Later, as netizens worldwide (RHONY in 60 countries per JZ! count ’em) pointed and laughed, both of these characters continued to explore greater lengths and depths of bombastic ridiculosity (and barrel bottom scraping) in bleating out their respective excuses and blaming others for being precisely what they are and doing what they do.

      I laughed, I cried, it was better than “Cats.”

      • MAMAZ says:

        WHAT’S YOU’RE EFFING POINT? We are going to watch the show regardless of who is or isn’t on tonight. If JZ is on then we will all come here to bitch. If she’s not we will still come here to talk about the show. So crawl back under your slimy rock and quit repeating yourself.

    • nancy says:

      Jill has a vary far away cameo tha t b. did not know she was in the “shot” Even doubt this but what the hay. Ignore little miss dear maxine.

      • MAMAZ says:

        Maybe JZ shows up at the hospital and Jason throws her size 10 ass out onto the street. That I would LOVE to see!
        Or Bawby parks outside the hospital and Jill stares longingly at the front doors until she see Silex arriving with ballons and gifts! And we are treated to Jill gnashing her teeth and weeping.
        Or Jill has lunch with KooKoolet and cries about not seeing the baby. Kelly tells her to zip it goes home and unfollows her on Twitter.
        All perfectly wonderful scenerios.

    • Katie says:

      Wow Maxine you are AMAZING. You have such AMAZING information. You should work for the CIA. I am so intrigued by your AMAZING wealth of knowledge. Don’t worry about the haters on this blog, they are part of the AMAZING ecosystem. Are you friends with al sharpton?

    I call BULLSHIT ON THAT!!

  50. error404 says:

    I’m so excited for tonight episode! I’ve waited so long for B and J to reunite. It’s only right.

    Also, I heard from my cousin’s sister-in-law’s uncle’s barber’s wife’s neighbor’s florist’s hairdresser’s manicurist’s sister’s husband’s brother’s partner’s gym-buddy’s accountant’s mechanic’s mother’s fish-monger’s best-friend’s step-sister’s half-brother’s step-father’s sous-chef’s sommelier’s maitre-d’s bee-keeper’s psychic’s sister’s foster-child’s case-worker that if Bet and Jas have another kid and it’s a boy, they’re going to name him Jill.

  51. Adios Lunatic says:

    For those that have asked how the TV ratings work:
    http://www.howstuffworks.com/question433.htm

    I was interested since the advent of DVRs and video on demand through Comcast and others, if the way they do this has changed. I’m a little surprised to see that it hasn’t changed at all. We were a Nielsen family during the late 70’s when I was a kid. Instead of a box we had to write everything down in a booklet and send it in.

  52. TweetMaxine says:

    My sources also tell me that Bethenny plans to rejoin Real Housewives next season and both her and Jason are considering a move to Connecticut.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Bizzaro World speak = It’s confirmed that B is not going back to RH and she & J are staying in NY.

      Oh Sweetie, those are just the voices in your head.

    • error404 says:

      really, both B AND Jason?! Will they live in the same town in CT? Close for the baby visits, right? Is Jason living in CT already? You are the poster who told Ilana that Jas had moved out, right?

  53. Olivia says:

    Gia now on Facebook? Do you think she will “friend”me? Nothing says love (or sheer stupidity) than to allow a 9 year old access to a website. Hello pedophiles!

    • I tweeted to Teresa about how stupid that is.
      Who advertises their young child’s facebook to thousands of ADULT strangers? That’s insane.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      It’s a PR thing for Gia’s “career.” The FB pg apparently is administered by a talent agency. So it’s far from a little kid’s personal FB page. It’s another front, more stagecraft which is what the whole mansion, riches, etc was.

      • Fabulous Earth says:

        I think if the lil’ one displays true talent, they (the agency) wouldn’t venture into a FB account for her.

        Then again…well…maybe that’s gonna be the new marketing tool for lil’ kids of reality personalities that wanna make a buck.

  54. Kelly_Has_Big-Shoulders says:

    • dumberries says:

      My sources say that Perez Hilton pops out of the woodwork (that he’s been gnawing on in the rafters) to take a candid shot of the happy group, and then writes an accurate and flattering blog about Bethenny. The show ends on that happy note.

    I meant people passing by my desk. You see I can’t even write.

  56. Zipit Zarin says:

    I can’t for BGM tonight! Woot!

    I noticed when Bethenny was on the different shows on Fox the hosts were so nice and respectful …decent to her. The *liberal* hosts were rude and dismissive. Joy ButtMunch on her show and The View bitches. I’m hoping liberal fans notice that and get a more fair and balanced idea of the Fox network.

    Zipit Zarin <—-diving into a "fox" hole! hehe

    • MAMAZ says:

      Sorry. It’s not about who they are and aren’t nice to. I dislike Faux News because of the sensational way they broadcast. The fearmongering and outright lies told by many of their anchors and talk show hosts.
      I also dislike Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg for taking an equally narrow view on the flip side of the issues.
      I don’t care which side a newscaster is on. I just want old school journalism, who, what, when, and where. You know, facts! I can interpret those facts for myself. I don’t want to be manipulated by half truth, crocodile tears or somebody’s personal idea of Christianity.

      • Tootsie says:

        Unfortunately that kind of journalism has died off and we are left with lying, cheating, plagurizing (sp) idiots who tend to spread their political leanings. Believe less than 10% of what you read. Sadly, who can we trust?

        • Dani says:

          Wow, this is exactly how I feel. You can not get the news any longer without the spin of the network you are watching. It is so sad that the American people don’t know what they can believe and not believe.

      • twoile says:

        DITTO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So very well stated, thank you MAMAZ.

  57. Olivia says:

    According to this week’s copy of People Magazine, the new DC Housewives only got a
    1 1/2 star rating. Says it is boring. Who’d of thought? Says it has little to do with politics and is peopled by another group of “social wannabe’s”.

    They gave BGM? 3 stars when they reviewed that show and they turned out to be right.

  58. Zipit Zarin says:

    Most people I know don’t want to reward the Salahi’s by giving them any more attention. Me included.

    • Fabulous Earth says:

      Oh honey this is Bravo, where they reward prostitution whores, ho-bags and the like…as a matter of fact, most bad behavior seems to be rewarded these days. Sad, I know.

    • Tootsie says:

      I understand completely. Human nature, and Bravo, being what it is, the Salahi’s will rise to new heights. Bad behavior being rewarded drives me crazy so I will simply not watch. She looks like a bag of bones and he looks like an arrogant scheister. I’d rather plaly solitaire.

    ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’: Infamous book in which Danielle Staub featured may be TV series.

    http://www.nj.com/entertainment/celebrities/index.ssf/2010/07/real_housewives_of_new_jersey_72.html

    • Zipit Zarin says:

      “Holy Shitballs!” Talk about rewarding bad behavior.

      • Squirrels says:

        I thought the ex was working a movie deal. I doubt both could be done simultaneously. Conflict of interest.

        • MAMAZ says:

          I never read the book but I think Danielle is only a very small part of the whole. It’s all about the Maher guy being a paid informant for the cops. A “based on a true story” type show could be done without using anything from the book. Just the basic premise – sleazeball badguy earns his dope money by informing to the popo.

      • Blue Sky says:

        I read the book, “cop without a badge” (got it from the local library!) and it is an interesting read. At one point one of Maher’s “girlfriends” ended up a hooker due to a bad drug habit, and might have been murdered by the serial killer Joel Rifkin. There would be plenty of story lines, based on Maher. Beverly/Danielle had a minor roll in the book.

        Instead of slapping a lawsuit on Danielle, Maher should be thanking her for bringing his out of print book & life back into the spotlight!

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Yes we really, really need another Miami Vice based on a true story piece of crap movie.

      Why do I feel like JJ is not liking the attention brought to him by his wife’s antics? From the FUCKYOU encrypted blog some episodes ago to her silly confrontation on national tv, I wonder in the back of JJ’s mind if he’s shakin’ his damn head at his “not-so-intelligent” wife?

    • Katie says:

      Wow. It is obvious she didn’t write that blog. No mention of being fabulous and bankruptlicious. But I figured she hired (or bartered with meatballs) a pr specialist.
      She has her nerve ripping it off of
      a website. You should post it one the bravo blog. I just posted a link to her court documents with the name #1 giudice fan.

          • dumberries says:

            Interesting Squirrels. Maybe he’s got guest spots lined up on next season’s show as the advising attorney. No way Bravo’s gonna be able to get around covering the bankruptcy and huge change of lifestyle (I hope).

  61. I don’t care about her ex husband enough to watch a show about his life, we already know the story pretty much, and the only reason ppl r interested is bc of Danielle.
    And I’m not even interested in Danielle enough to watch an entire series about her.
    But I would probably watch a Lifetime movie about her life, and how she went from stripper/coke whore in Miami to housewife in New Jersey to a reality tv star.
    It could be an inspiration to strippers and hookers everywhere

    • Zipit Zarin says:

      LOL!

    • Quincy IL says:

      I knew some hookers when I was young. I worked in a Chicago hospital and they would come for treatment (and the hope of methodone) fairly often. They were always nice to me. You have to wonder where they come from. They are sometimes the victims of childhood abuse. They are often kids that got involved with drugs. Years ago, I visited San Francisco and on one street there were little girls offering sex to the men that were walking with me. I’d say as young as 12 years old.

      I just feel badly lumping all of strippers and prostitutes together and declaring that they are evil women. There are some who were raised in that environment and they never had a chance to escape.

      Thank goodness, we had families and people that cared about us so we could become succesful women.

    From Jill’s blog: 7.20.10
    I can’t believe how time flies! Last I wrote, Ally had just come home from India and now I feel like the summer is almost over. We have tried to spend as much time as possible in the Hamptons.

    It took me a while to decompress from the final episode of Real Housewives. I started doing Pilates again. I got lucky. The owner of a local pilates studio called me before I moved out here to see if I wanted to take classes. She got my number from someone I used to workout with. Smart women. I saved her message and when I moved out here I called her back. I liked that she reached out to me and thought I would try one session. We connected immediately and she really payed attention and cared. She let me play my own Ipod music. She loved it so much she asked me to put it on her ipod too! I think working out to good music really helps push you the extra mile. If you want, I can publish a good play list on the next blog! She got me motivated and I have been going 3 times a week. I have not cancelled one time (yet!) which is a big accomplishment for me. I have come up with the craziest excuses in the past. It changed my body immediately. I did pilates for 2 years and then stopped for 3. Muscle memory. It is true. It came back fast.

    I wake up early, walk outside in my bathrobe to get the newspapers and set up yogurt, fruit and cereal on the counter for everyone to eat when they get up. This past weekend Lisa (my sister) came to visit. We walked to the Ocean (about 1/4 mile) and walked on the beach together for over an hour. We caught up and shared our fears and hopes with each other. We found the most beautiful rocks on the beach and picked out two. When I got back to the house I wrote Summer 2010 on each one to save. I hope to make this a tradition and one day give them to our girls to carry on the tradition. After we came home we walked next door to the farm to pick up fresh breads and more fruit and vegetables. On the way there we saw cows, horses, chickens and pigs. I drive down this street 10 times a day but never appreciate the beauty in nature unless I walk through it. I told Bobby I want to take the same walk with him tomorrow if it’s nice out. Bobby loves to walk and really loves the beach.

    Bobby also loves to swim and can stay in the water for hours. I rarely do. But this past weekend was so hot and perfect that I jumped in. (Of course I heated it up to 90 first!) We had a houseful of children and it was so much fun playing with them.

    Socially, we have gone to some fun parties and benefits, but my favorite evenings are with friends at home. Last weekend Indrani from Double Exposure was our houseguest. It is so much fun being a tour guide. I showed her everything and we really got to know each other. The most special part of the weekend was when she offered to sit with Ally and look through her photos from India and share some techniques. It just takes one person to inspire you or give you the confidence you need to be successful. Indrani offered to mentor Ally and that meant more to me than she will ever know.

    It is almost time for the new epsisode of RHNJ, so I gotta run. Please share some of your stories! I read them all.

    Love, Jill

      Jill as a judge on American Idol? Now she’s really dilusional.. she is a legend in her own mind. The sad thing is that she really think’s she’s THAT popular. Did Jill forget that we all hate her? Her handful of insane fans are making her think people actually like her….

      Two strikes. Once she screws up her credit, she’ll be three for three.

      • She is totally planning a future as a Bravo housewife. She’s already got the blog. And you can tell she’s been taking hints from Teresa and Danielle on how to stay relevant and talked about.
        I doubt she has any actual plans of getting a real job. What a shock it is going to be when her 15 minutes run out.

      Thank you for this link. When I saw this crib and mobile when Bethenny was shopping I loved it and thought if I ever have a baby girl this is what I would want. I was so disappointed that she didn’t know what she was having and chose to decorate the room around the elephant. Looking forward to tonight’s episode and to see baby Bryn.

      • dumberries says:

        It’s a cute style. I always like yellow for babies rooms, especially if the sex is unknown. The cartoon safari animals are cute too. Will be fun to see it on the show tonight!

      I love Bellini. When my son was born, they had just opened (maybe a year) and I shopped there. The customer service was awesome, and I bought furniture of high quality (although expensive) but he didn’t outgrow it, and at 15 years old, he still uses it. Can’t beat quality. Good for B, smart decision. What a beautiful crib.

      Thx Squirrels. I would of missed. I’m not sure Lifetime will do repeat shows like Bravo does.

      • dumberries says:

        You can catch repeats On Demand on Comcast, but Lifetime takes a while to make them available (5 or 6 days). Project Runway used to be my favorite show, but it seemed much better produced when it was on Bravo. Go figure.

    Just so everyone will be clear that lawyer did not come up with that famous bankruptcy list in Teresa’s blog. It is all over the internet. If you type in famous people and bankruptcy that same list will pop up. I know that same list is in a book by John Maxwell, I think it may be the 17 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. That lawyer did not come up with that so he can’t give her a pass for something he did not make up.

    • Squirrels says:

      I looked @ the website. There is one line that is word for word. When I was in college, that equalled plagiarism.

      • HD says:

        Squirrels, Teresa plagiarising is not in question, the source of the quote was what I commented on. 🙂 The lawyer did not come up with that quote. It is all over the web and in a book that I read.

        Now when I was in college, we were clear to quote the source and not claim to have invented quotes that we clearly didn’t and as writer, I under plagiarism quite well.

  70. NMhousewife says:

    Realitytea.com has a funny clip from tonight’s BGM? where Jaosn and Bethenny are having issues getting the baby out of the car! (well probably Bravo has the same clip) I love this show!

    Has “Work of Art” fizzled? I thought that Miles was manipulating Jacqueline into the position of being a one trick pony which in Design Star is a ticket to the slamming stage door. Jacqueline has used her own sexuality and her figure in almost all of the challenges. I get it Jacqueline, you are gorgeous. Now, get over with that and show us what you can do. I love Nicole, Luann’s niece, but she’s not the top artist in the remaining group. Albie has been on the cliff so many times, that a puff of air will push him into the ravine. Peregrine has the mind and training of a real artist. I’m not into glitter and cigarette butts as art, but I know that found objects is a legitimate trend and you have to go with the flow in art. As a microbiologist, I hope everyone washed their hands after collecting cigarette butts off the streets of NYC. I think Miles is going to win the contest and receive the personal art show in the Brooklyn Museum. He is a real artist. His brain is set up for the creation of art. I’d love to have neuroscientists look at Miles because I think we could learn a great deal by studying him. I enjoyed the competition. I think they should tweek the format for the next season. I like Simon and China and hope they come back next year.

            Yes, at 75 I heard of that years ago. Improves the breast milk they say. We did so many things during our pregnancy that are forbidden now. No one I knew had babies with troubles after they smoked and drank during their pregnancy. Doctor advised me to drink one glass of wine at the end of pregnancy so I could sleep.

        • sugarmagnolia10 says:

          Yes, it’s pretty common. Something about the yeast in beer that helps. One of my L and D nurses told me that in Germany, they actually give moms a beer in the hospital to get the milk going. Don’t know if that’s true, but she was sure. After my first baby, my Mexican Grandmother actually brought me a beer while I was nursing. I’ve had 3 kids, and I only had the beer after the first, and it was the only time my milk came in quickly. The other 2, I had to pump like mad….

    This kid is carrying her antipathy a little too far. I despise Danielle but spending the better portion of her life dedicated to nothing but this time wasted effort is pathetic.

    By the way: who paid for the cosmetic surgery since this Nimrod does not hold a full time job with benefits? This kid needs to grow up for once and stop being coddled by the likes of Bravo who made the wrong decision to include her in the mix of an already cast of f*cktards.

        Personally, I see her behind a counter at Rite Aid selling face cream and bandaids to former classmates. That’s if Rite Aid does not bother with CORI checks and she is not expected to add, subtract, multiply or divide the amount of the purchase.

    I saw “season finale” for next week show does that mean we will have a season 2? I would love to see a season 2 and then after that a cooking show or hosting show. No more reality for Bethenny I know she said five years but I pray she gets a day time show after season 2 so she does not have to do a season 3.

    Has anyone else noticed that Jill only tweets about what she’s watching on TV on Thursday nights? Never on a Monday, Tuesday, etc…… Did she seriously think we wouldn’t figure this out? She’s so transparent.

    • HD says:

      LOL! I don’t tweet but that is SUCH a good point! If I did tweet I would ask her what does she watch the rest of the week since we only hear about Thursday? LOL!

    BGM was so beautiful! But why was I BAWLING my eyes out??!!! For me, this is the type of show I should spend my time watching (and tweeting/posting about).

    This show left me with a smile and feeling good! AND ENTERTAINING AT THE SAME TIME!!! (Go figure Bravo). I need to be more selective to what I spend my time watching and posting about. I don’t like feeling angst and pissed about situations and folks that really have nothing to do with me. Maybe when I have more things in my life settled to where I can afford that kind of time but not now when I’m trying to do so much.

    Thank you so much Lynn for this blog! And thank you all for sharing your thoughts. I’m not going to post anymore but I just wanted to say thanks for this place. It was here when I was pissed, angry and needed to vent about characters or people on tv. THANK GOD FOR THIS PLACE CUZ WHERE THE HELL COULD I GO TO LET IT ALL OUT!!! Lynnnchicago you were here for me!!! lol. But today, I decided to not dwell on those things – not to watch and if I do, just let it go and don’t spend anymore time on it. I just don’t like these things taking up my thought processes when there’s so many other things I should be using my mental energy on.

    Unless I have a “relapse” or something I won’t be around these parts anymore. But I love all of you here and you’ve made me laugh (and sometimes not but I love you nonetheless and I’m serious). Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

    Stay funny and insightful you guys and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy this life – it’s filled with so many beautiful moments, none should be missed! MUAH!!!

      This is so funny. I love Colbert as Kelly. He even made her sound dumber than she is and I didn’t think that was possible.

    • MELANIE says:

      Thanks for posting this. Surely this will become a classic TV moment.
      Those guys were working that transcript!

    • Jenni says:

      Thanks for the post! I missed BGM and Colbert last night, This helps while I am waiting for the reruns!

      • vilzvet says:

        Funny!!! Andy was great as Bethenny and even though Colbert probably never watched the show he read those ridiculous REAL lines perfectly!

    Kelly’s restaurant recommendations—her tweet:

    Tribeca haunts: warren 77, tribeca tavern, walters ( you can color with crayons at the table)

    • cusi 77 says:

      You can color the table with crayons???? I couldn’t miss it for the world! Lets go Kelly!!!!!

    • Ellabean says:

      What do you want to bet that Kelly insisted on coloring at that table – while Teddy and Sea wanted to order food, eat, and get out of there.

  97. boston02127 says:

    DIGGER where are you? You’d appreciate this. LOL Kelly’s tweet:

    At lga. Off to chicago to run for charity. What are u going to do for someone else today?

    Oh Maxine Please show me where Jill was on last nite. I really must have missed that part. Cried the entire show. Maybe I missed the Zilz through all the tears and laughs. Also, don’t you owe someone here $100?
