I Hate Jill Zarin Real Housewives of Atlanta Preview Oct 4, 2010

I Hate Jill Zarin Preview – Real Housewives of Atlanta October 4, 2010

Last week my friend HD did an outstanding preview of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and tonight’s the night, the premier will air at 10pm / 9pm Central.

It feels like a really long time since we were all frustrated by the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season Two reunion shows. We know now that the women had rebelled against Bravo and made a pact not to speak badly about each other or argue about anything. This was in response to Bravo refusing to give the women a raise, there would be no drama on the reunion and therefore Bravo wouldn’t benefit from their fighting any longer, not without more money and more perks! Sort of like the cast of Friends, The Real Housewives of Atlanta banned together for a common cause, money!

It was actually a pretty smart thing to do, and apparently to some extent it worked because they’re all coming back tonight! Even Lisa Wu Hartwell, I’m sure you’ve all heard, will be in just a supporting role this season, she may appear only in a few episodes at the beginning of the season. Word is Mrs. Hartwell refused to amp up her storyline for Bravo, I guess her bubble baths with her husband just weren’t as sexy as she thought they were.

So we’re left with the four from last season and two new housewives that will be introduced in the next few weeks. We have three bat-shit crazy women, NeNe, Kim and Sheree, and then there is Kandi Burress who could not be more unsuited for a Bravo housewives series. I’m assuming that Kandi joined the cast to spark her musical career but I can’t imagine why she is still there. Kandi is truly talented and it actually annoys me every time Bravo executive, Andy Cohen plays these talentless housewives songs on his network and completely ignores Kandi! Kandi is the only one with any talent and she doesn’t get air time. Possibly Kandi refused to give Bravo a portion of the proceeds, and rightly so!

Kandi Burress is a single mom who joined the cast last season with her cute little daughter, overbearing mother and a slew of aunts watching over her! Overbearing or not, Kandi’s mother cares so much about her daughter and the love that they share is beautiful.

Kandi has an internet radio show called Kandi Koated Nights and the conversations get risqué leaving all of the other housewives blushing in shock. I hope this season Kandi finds true love! Kandi is the Sonja (RHONY) of Atlanta.

NeNe Leakes is a big woman with a bigger mouth and even bigger personality! She has battled with every Atlanta housewife at one time or another and her highly publicized marital problems are no surprise to anyone who’s been following the story of NeNe during the off season. Kandi aired a telephone conversation that NeNe’s husband Greg had with a radio personality on her internet radio program. Greg apparently did not know that this was being recorded or would ever be for public consumption, naturally it was less than kind. Greg talks about how much money he spent to help his wife become famous, renting an expensive home, buying her a new wardrobe and expensive vehicles for her and her son, he wanted to be repaid for those things. While it appeared as though this couple were pretty tight during Season One, Greg was the voice of reason that would rein NeNe in when she got completely out of control and we rarely saw them argue. Apparently this was all part of the plan to make NeNe a star and support their lifestyle.

This season we’re going to see this couple implode and their marriage is stressed to the extreme. We’re also going to see NeNe’s son Brice featured as his problems with drugs and the law are highlighted.

NeNe’s on again off again best girlfriend, Kim Zolciak is just a hot mess, this chain-smoking, wig wearing egomaniac who needs a reality check. She fancies herself a singer but has the worst voice of any of the singing housewives. As much as I love Kandi, I totally blame her for allowing Kim to record a single and force us all to hear this horrible song! Kandi says, “Kim has one single and she thinks that she’s Lady GaGa.” Well, now Kim as two singles, her new song, “Goggle Me” was just released last week and it is worse than “Tardy for the Party” if you can imagine.

Kim has two daughters who I can see going in the same direction as Lynne Curtain’s daughters as they’re both already on Twitter, a social network that is arguably an adult site. This woman has had an on again off again relationship with a man she calls “Big Poppa” who we all now know is Lee Najjar, a very successful – and married – real estate mogul based in Atlanta. TMZ cameras were the first to capture images of Zolciak and Najjar on a romantic vacation at the Hotel Atlantis in the Bahamas last November.

Word is that Kim and Big Poppa are now over once again, for the time being, Kim has also been linked romantically to DJ Tracy Young fueling rumors that Zolciak is bi-sexual. Big Poppa was in the picture during filming so he will be presumably talked about but never seen. (the Tommy Manzo of Atlanta)

Bravo has posted some previews of The Real Housewives of Atlanta including the ladies giving tours of their homes and long previews of the show.

http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-atlanta/season-3/videos/head-back-to-atlanta

New to the show this season is Phaedra Parks, who is with child as we join her this season. This newly married entertainment attorney is the talk of the town due to her new husband and his past stint in jail. Phaedra is a friend of Kandi’s and will be introduced to viewers as she’s planning her very own baby shower.

Also joining this season is supermodel Cynthia Bailey and her 10-year old daughter Noelle. This independent lady who has also done some acting is struggling with the decision to marry her longtime boyfriend.

Finally, I was surprised to learn that Bravo was bringing back Sheree Whitfield to the show. Sheree’s now defunct clothing line She By Sheree was really the only interesting thing about this housewife. A single mom, we watched last season as the usually cool and calm Sheree was visibly nervous meeting with a fashion house executive. Her clothing line seemed to define her storyline and with that gone, it will be interesting to see what comes next for the divorced single mother.

Sheree has a huge ego, throwing herself lavish parties and having a massive painting of herself unveiled to hang in her home. Sheree’s children do not appear on the show presumably because the father of the children will not allow them to appear, I’m not really sure what we’re going to see Sheree doing this season. She seems to be the Dina Manzo (RHONJ) of Atlanta, without the shy husband and ugly cats.

And so with six and a half housewives, Atlanta kicks off tonight and I, for one, can’t wait so Watch What Happens!

NeNe Leakes will appear on Wendy Williams show today, here’s her announcement:

@NeNeLeakes: Tune n2 @WendyShow Monday Morning! Watch me my girl Wendy catch up on all the rumors & the housewives drama
@NeNeLeakes: Tune n2 @WendyShow tomorrow morning! Me & my girl gotta lot of catching up 2 do!

NeNe is also scheduled to appear on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday night with Michaele and Tareq Salahi immediately after the finale of The Real Housewives of DC. NeNe is in NYC all week
.
@NeNeLeakes: I don’t really party but I might come out 4 a few minutes some where nice?? I gotta fly 2 NYC Sunday 4 a week
@NeNeLeakes: Come on New York show some luv! It’s cold & I didn’t pack 4 this!

NeNe has been tweeting lately about rumors that have been spread about her and claiming that the new season of RHOA will prove she’s been telling the truth. There is no way of knowing exactly what NeNe is referring to, but I’m assuming it is the rumors about her cheating on her husband with a professional NFL player, more Tweets from NeNe:

@NeNeLeakes: Nobody would stop me from proclaiming my innocents against such serious allegations! Especially when it involves my family
@NeNeLeakes: I’ve been accused of wrong doings b4 by the media(tv radio blogs etc) & the 1 thing I said was THAT IS A LIE, I’VE NEVER DONE THAT!
@NeNeLeakes: The person that tried 2 accuse me knew they were a low down dirty no good 4 nothing piece of s*** that wanted 2 bring me down but I went up

Kim Zolciak is having her own little impromptu premier party, surprisingly there isn’t a pre-planned bash in Atlanta hosted by Bravo considering Atlanta currently stands as Bravo’s top rated housewives series.

@KimZolciak Ok Twist it is!!!!! Tomorrow night 9pm…who Is coming with me??
@KimZolciak Tonight is the night!!! RHOA begins 9pm on Bravo…who is going to be watching? Who is coming to Twist 2night to celebrate?????

Here’s what Kandi had to say:

@Kandi: The premier of the 3rd season of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta tonight 9pm!
@Kandi: Ok on the 1st episode of RHOA & I look like I weigh a ton! Its so obvious I’ve gained weight since last season…. Ugh!!!!
@Kandi: I had 2 remind a friend not 2 worry. It cant rain 4ever! God just didnt make life that way. Even after the worst storm the Sun Shines!

I really like Kandi, she is a nice person but she also stands up for herself and she tells it like it is.
Not to be ignored, Cohen had this to say:

@BravoAndy: BAM!! “Real Housewives of Atlanta” premieres tonight on Bravo! #dontbetardyfortheparty

Last night I did my second interview with Carly Hall along with Laura (@Geoaubsmom) who ripped open the latest Dina Manzo story. Laura is responsible for providing us with the documents on the charity, she really did her homework.

Carly has interviewed Sonja Morgan (RHONY) for her show and has invited Dina Manzo to give her side of the story on the show, so far no response.

When the interview is released, should be later today, I’ll post the link so that you can all hear Laura’s story.

This whole Project Ladybug thing could have been a complete nothing had Dina just answered a few simple questions rather than losing her temper and becoming defensive. People who donate their money to charity have the right to inquire as to where that money is going, how it’s being spent and how much of it goes directly to the children that Dina’s claiming to help. As it turns out, past year’s financial statements have revealed only 51% of the funds donated to Project Ladybug have been turned over to St. Joe’s Hospital to help children.

That is less than some charities and more than others so it isn’t necessarily the end of the world, and it is within legal guidelines, but Dina’s refusal to cooperate with Laura’s requests for information resulted in more questions and more research. Laura has committed to seeing this through to the end, Project Ladybug is required to file their final 2009 tax returns by the end of this year and Laura will be watching…

Until Next Time…

  1. LynnNChicago says:

    FYI for anyone who has asked, the comments by Jersey Girl, Wayne Girl and Butterfly Kisses were all posted by the same person.

    • justanothermary says:

      As well as diamondlover and Garden State Girl.

      • LynnNChicago says:

        Yes! Thanks JustanotherMary

        • justanothermary says:

          No problem Lynn. I couldn’t sleep last night so the whole “mole” issue kept me entertained.

        • quincyil says:

          Lynn, did I tell you that I played volley ball on a high school team? There is the “set up” and the “attack.” I think we had both.

        • Waxdiva says:

          Are these posters the same?

          i_shited_over-the-rainbow-to-find-the-pot-of-gold!

          over-the-rainbow-to-find-the-pot-of-gold!

          If so, they may be connected to Dina… remember that she really wanted “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” as her wedding song?

          • WindyCityWondering says:

            I thought they were the same poster. The offensive work was removed because of the negative reaction to it. The content was the same in both.

            • Waxdiva says:

              Just weird that Dina would slightly change her posting name and think that no one notice… being/acting weird: another symptom of PTSD.

              • quincyil says:

                Is it weird that a Grandma kitty site was born on twitter and it attacked Dina’s “enemies?”

                Missing a few cards in the deck, in my opinion.

          • Yes, not only did Dina want that song at her wedding, but anyone who reads the twitter acct she made for her cat knows that she has a very strange obsession with her cat’s shit.

      • quincyil says:

        LOL… I need to be more creative and come up with lots of names for my one avatar.

        Thintervension is tonight. There are lie detector tests for the castmates. I think Jeana Keough is going to get caught with a coconut shrimp in her pocket.

        I am going to review Thintervension in put in the comment section for those who want to read it. I am also going to write about that food voice that Jeana listens to when she is supposed to be eating oatmeal.

        • AZ Girl says:

          Went to happy hour with my girlfriends last week and they order coconut shrimp. I could not bring myself to eat it after finding out how many calories it has. Thintervention has been really informative but I am worried about the amount of injuries that have occurred. Jackie needs to warm up her people and stretch them out after the workouts. Off to spin class.

          • quincyil says:

            I think they are over doing it too. I walked for the first few months of my cardio and the teacher watched over me in the weight lifting. I was afraid of getting hurt. After all of this time, I can finally jump rope again. You wouldn’t believe how hard it was in the beginning.

            • nathania says:

              Did you do a Thintervention recap this last time? I looked for it and I guess I missed it. There is so much going on on this blog I am having trouble keeping up with it. It has become more interesting to me with Jackie trying to rein in Jeanna and that English woman who doesn’t want to participate that much (I’m terrible with names).

              • quincyil says:

                I wrote it on Tues last week and it’s in that comment section. There was a second part of skin care.

        • Maite1964 says:

          Looking forward for your comments. I’d been so freaking busy lately I turn on the TV but can’t sit down to watch anything! So I pretty much learn the details from this blog :).

    • jezzibel says:

      Lynn, maybe you should include that list on the blog of one user using multiple names, so for some of us that wander on to the board know who to avoid engaing in(not a hitlist or anything but a confirmed list of trolls and their various identities)

    • Sha2000 says:

      It was blatantly evident but thanks for confirming.

    • Meadow says:

      Didn’t one of the organizations that Project Ladybug donated to have Butterflies in its name?

  2. Melinda says:

    Can’t wait to see what Atlanta has in store for us……….

    I agree, Kim couldn’t hold a tune if it had handles and that is my one pet peeve with Kandi….that she actually let Kim think she could sing!! Girl, tell the truth, you had to alter her voice within centimeters of it being not hers to get it to sound even halfway decent to human ears!!

    seriously…….some of us cannot sing………should not sing…….and Kim is our leader!

    I feel sorry for NeNe in the respect that her husband has turned out to be a jerk……no one deserves that…….but if I know NeNe she will let him have it! 😉

    • justanothermary says:

      BAM!!

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      Without knowing what Greg did, besides the unknown interview, I think he’s been used and put out to pasture. He seemed to be loving, doting husband and father. Tried to help his stepson become more independent and responsible but now that the money is gone, Nene is making him out to be the bad guy and wants a divorce. Stardom changed Nene. She really made it about herself and you saw her constantly out WITHOUT her husband. While Lisa and her husband went to events together, Nene went alone. Greg was home watching the kid and I guess being old. Nene cares only about Nene.

      • DWandM says:

        I am in agreement with you. I thought that last season when Kim said that Nene was cheating on Greg.

      • Savannah111 says:

        Amber I have to agree with you about Nene, season one she was my favorite and last year the change in her was scary…

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        While Greg did come across as very likable and the voice of reason in previous seasons…he was supposedly still married when he hooked up with NeNe. He is also said to be behind on child support for his son he had with his ex-wife.

        Thus he is nothing more than a dead beat who left his wife for a trashy- loud and obnoxious stripper who isn’t nearly as attractive as she thinks she is.

      • winatlife says:

        I agree. Nene used to be my favoriate before Kandi, and not I cannot stand the woman.

        Atlanta is entertaining, but I would love to see it canned just so that Nene can not make another dollar off of this franchise.

        If your husband is having hard times, support him, and Get A Job. What is wrong with these women?

  3. TrueLifeDiva says:

    Last week I wasn’t surprised to see Ostrich faced Kara and her coin-purse lips on screen with Jeanna. Does anyone remember that Diox*#+@n weight loss suppliment all the OC housewives were shilling? None of them lost weight on it. LMAO 🙂

    • quincyil says:

      Gosh, I think Kara is beautiful. I thinks she’s great.

      • quincyil says:

        I think you are beautiful too. See, I have great taste.

        • Sha2000 says:

          Kara is great & smart.

          • truelifediva says:

            I used to think she was just overly aware of the cameras, etc. But then the whole “bummers” thing went down and I lost all respect for her.

            • Need a Hobby says:

              Yeah….are they talking about the same person? Great and smart? I saw spoiled, entitled, condescending to others based on nothing since she’d accomplished nothing on her own merit, not the sharpest tool in the shed or particularly informed about anything outside her own narrow interests.

              Did she become Madame Curie and Mother Teresa rolled into one and I just missed it? Whatever.

      • truelifediva says:

        When she speaks, her lips do this weird pucker that looks like an Ostrich beak and mugs way too hard for the camera.

        • quincyil says:

          Well, she’s not as beautiful as you are… and her feet in high heels aren’t as great as yours…but I think she’s beautiful… I think she has a sense of humor that Jeana really should copy.

  4. TEB says:

    WSL- I did see your crash! That was a missed Port/Starboard crossing!! I commented on last blog but it got a little crazy over there! We race a J-boat (smaller than the one in your picture). I’ve raced for NYYC for an International Team race but I’ve never been to the club in Manhattan. Just Harbor Court.

  5. Amber...Real Wife says:

    Nene was my favorite housewife in Atlanta S1. I really felt for her when she was humiliated by Sheree, then betrayed by Kim and Sheree. She went through it and came out smelling like a rose. Yes, she was loud but she was funny and witty and that made her more endearing.

    Then came S2. After all of the positive press and endorsements from celebrities she lost her mind! S2 she came guns blazing, she was over the top in every situation. She went to every event looking for fights, demanding camera time, bullying Kim and Kandi at every opportunity. Her thuggish behaviour was outrageous for any woman let alone one in her 40’s.

    Later when asked about losing fans, prior to Jill though, she blamed editing for showing her in a bad light. Nope. Much like Jill, all of the behaviour was there, BRAVO chose not to show it. They were cutting the story to make villains and heroines. Then when all the rope given to these wives was pulled taught, they showed the wives true colors.

    • truelifediva says:

      I recall it a little bit differently. She didn’t blame editing. What she said was S1 they were themselves. S2 they had “show runners” who would whisper in their ears, “Go confront XYZ about the rumors going around.” and so on. This made a lot of sense as some of the confrontations seemed contrived and out of the blue. I could see where show runners and fan mail would make someone think showing their ass is cute 😉

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        Actually she did blame editing on WWHL, in response to Andy’s questions about her behaviour and fan reaction. She said BRAVO chose to air those situations and not everything that was taped. Andy said “So you are going to blame editing?” and she wanted to move on.

  6. justanothermary says:

    I’ll be back later all – dr. appt. this a.m. Don’t let anything really good happen while I’m gone!

    • cusi77 says:

      Mary_ God Bless you. Come back with great news! Love and lot of Angels in you way.

    • truelifediva says:

      Hey, I was asking about you last night but I guess you missed it in all the rainbow madness! I haven’t forgotten you and I will be e-mailing you periodically with support 🙂

      • justanothermary says:

        Sorry I missed your post last night diva – it was a kina crazy night. I’m feeling good, but the reports don’t match my feelings so I’m in for 4 more chemo treatments.

        Thanks all for the kind thoughts and prayers. I am constantly amazed by the amount of support I find here in contrast to the lack of it within my family who simply can’t be bothered. You’re all the best!

        • OneMoreinBoston says:

          Hi there!
          I’m happy you’re feeling good-but sad you need more treatments!

          but it’s only 4 more- they’ll fry every last icky cell that even thinks about making it’s way into your body.

          My family did the same thing to me when i was diagnosed with cancer. Never ever mentioned it, never ever asked me if I was ok-nothing but crickets chirping if you know what I mean.

          it’s denial- but so hurtful

          • justanothermary says:

            I had the family sit down when all this started and told them I would need help and that none of them would ever have to go through something like this alone and I didn’t think I should have to either. Everyone was going to be there for me but it never happened. I’m not even telling them about the new series of treatments.

            • American Idiot says:

              I hope the 4 go quickly. With Altlanta starting, maybe this blog can take your mind off the chemo.

            • Rabble Rouser says:

              I’m so sorry to hear you are ill. I am sending prayers your way.

            • winatlife says:

              I went through weeks of treatment too. I loved the staff. I was heartbroken when I found out I had 2 more treatments, but I’ll tell ya. Those women made a scary, heartbreaking situation almost like a party. The vast majority of care givers in this country are so wonderful. They may not have gone through what we did or are, but dangummit, it seems like they have. The human touch from a stranger is something I cannot describe when facing breast cancer.

          • Diana says:

            That is awful! I don’t have anything to do with my remaining family, so in my case that would not be surprising, but your family’s denial must have really hurt. You are a strong one!

        • Savannah111 says:

          So sorry to hear your sick…

        • Lisa says:

          I’m sorry to hear about the chemo. My MIL started 2 days ago. Here’s hoping for a complete recovery for both of you.

  7. Buffywood says:

    Oh boy, Andy Cohen is on The Today Show talking about “entertainment news”.

  8. Sha2000 says:

    Quincy your last comments on yesterdays blog were insightful & interesting. but boy do you get up early!

  9. HD says:

    Thanks for the compliment, Lynn! I almost forgot that today was the big day! I cannot wait!! I know this season is gonna to be a roller coaster of DRAMA!

    I agree with everyone that said NeNe changed! What the hell happened?! A little bit of fame and she lost her damn mind! And this season it doesn’t look like it gets any better.

    I read Aug-Sept 08 NJ blog.
    It really seams there is bad blood btwn Teresa & her SIL.
    Below is a rant from 2yrs ago by A$$ley. This NJ “trash talking”
    Pre dates the show. I used to doubt & thought the “Stars” had to b tooo busy being stars to care. Nope. I was wrong.
    Anyway I am convinced Teresa may have been visiting us.

    ashley said…

    i personally think all of you should just shut up and go get a life… seriously. i hope you guys are teenagers and not grown women…cuz if you’re all grown women leaving comments on a random blog about a reality show… really makes me wonder if YOU’RE the ones not getting attention from your men. – and where are your children while you’re sitting at your computer ? hmm.. i think you all need to grow up and stop creating petty high school-like drama on a blog about the new jersey housewives… why do you all give a shit about them anyway ? jealous maybe ? if you don’t like them so much why bother taking time out of your “perfect” lives to comment this? does it make you feel better about yourself? what do you gain out of this? is this the kind of shit you have to do to feel like you’re special or something? it’s stupid. besides…WHO ARE YOU to gossip and talk shit about these women? -all of you that claim to them ..obviously don’t know them very well…i can assure that NONE of them were hookers…also,to the women who defend the ladies on this show…thank you…but you should just stop…WHO CARES what these people are saying? they obviously have no life.. and nothing better to do ..they’re all pathetic. you’re better than them. let them think what they want to think..no matter what you say to defend yourselves or the women on the show…they’re going to keep gossiping and talking shit…just leave it alone… i am actually a daughter of one of the housewives on the show… and honestly once this show airs… i don’t give a damn what you’ll all say about me…i don’t really care what you’ll think of me…because either way you’re all going to think what you believe…but when it all comes down to it…there’s nothing you could say that would effect me at all…and I’M SURE all the other housewives on the show feel the same way too. my mother never comments because she honestly doesn’t give a shit.we all laugh about this blog and joke about how stupid all of you are. and i’m sure the other housewives do the same .–it’s gossip. GROW UP LADIES…and stop being so bitter

    __this is my FIRST and FINAL post.
    thanks

      On this blog WSL????

      • LynnNChicago says:

        that is part of Ashley’s post that WSL posted

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        it was a local blog to the area the NJ housewives live in associated with a newspaper – Ashley was all over it defending the wives prior to the show beginning. People were trashing them and it was boringly tedious but funny in a way knowing what we know now. Everyone used the handle anonyomous except Ashley used her name once.

        • Need a Hobby says:

          Actually the blog not local to NJ at all. Not associated with a newspaper either.

          It was just a blog on the net that mentioned a new RH show in NJ when word got out that there would be one. Evidently NJ folks were active with the google, looking for mention of the show, found that blog and then had a free for all. Classic case of “anonymous” calling out another “anonymous.” Nuts. At least Ash used her name.

    • cusi77 says:

      TY Wall Street Lady for posting Ashley’s comment… It seems that she was already the same lazy excuse of teenager we all saw in further episodes… I pity her as well as Jaq… Talking about immature people!

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        yes and I remember thinking who’s kid is up in the middle of the night blogging! Jacq can’t keep her internet junkie daughter off the stuff!!

  11. HD says:

    @ Jeepers…I am one to hardly stir up stuff as most people here that know me and know my post can clearly confirm. But what you said on the last blog is killing me and I would not be me if I did not address it.

    We all come here to learn as I have learned so much from so many of the women on this blog. That is the beauty of this blog-we live, we learn, we grow.

    Your comment…

    were very definitely “Well Endowed”!!
    So there really is a Santa Claus…….Jeepers
    ROTFLMAO

    Bothered the HELL out of me. And let me tell you why. You may not understand this, you may think it is an innocent comment. But this is a common “myth” within our race. And trust me IT IS A MYTH! Don’t be fooled. However, Black people-men and women are often times over sexualized in the media and reduced to their body parts. They have been for years. Take Sara Baartman for instant. Please look her up and read about her and how her body parts were put on display for the enjoyment of others who have never saw a behind and vagina and breasts like her’s. It is offensive.

    I found what you said to be offensive and not in the least bit funny. There is so much more to Black men then their private parts and if they are “well endowed” or not.

    Before you make such comments in an open forum, please pause and think for a minute. We can all easily toss around generalizations and myths about other races or cultures but I find them to be offensive to me so I generally try not to do it to others.

    Yes, I may seem like I went overboard on this but I would not be okay if I did not try to shed some light on your comments. This is the way that we learn.

      Race doesn’t matter. If you really want to know in advance, just look at the hand & foot size, people are usually in proportion. Not being disgusting & I normally would not say this but just wanted to clarify.

      • Sha2000 says:

        To clarify, agreeing w/you hd.

        • A lot of people imagine, or have a “type” of person that they’re looking-for. Ha ha-that’s why they have that short-hand for singles-ads.
          I have one friend, who always amazes me-she just doesn’t have any “type”, but she does have a lot of interesting dates.
          I like to have a “type” myself.
          I have decided that I like bald guys. seeing a bald man in a uniform, is almost like porn for me. I recently decided that on my quest for my next lover, after my divorce of course, that a bald-headed black man might be my “type” as well.
          That being said, maybe she meant, “well-hung”, in-general…but I get your point. I will Google the person that you mention, and I recently learned of another person in history, I believe her name was Anarca, I’m not sure about the spelling, but what was done to her was horrible.
          From what I recall she was the daughter of a slave, & injured during childbirth. She needed her fissure repaired. The doctor (curiously, the doctor who attended the birth), proceeded to experiment on her and degrade her in painful ways. I won’t mention the doctor’s name, but he is known as the father of gynecology in the US & I think that he invented the speculum….ok I’m done with my rant, sorry but I couldn’t resist a chance to remember this woman who I only recently learned-about.

      • HD says:

        I can stand the hand, foot and height thing since you are correct most people are proportionate in size. 🙂 And you are correct, race is not an issue when it comes to that, so that is why it should not be made out to be one. That is a silly MYTH one that has been perpetuated for years and it is just silly and I would think by now not even mentioned. Just because you are Black does not mean you have a ridiculous size member. Major eye rollage!

        • Sha2000 says:

          And just because you are a natural blond doesn’t mean you are dumb. Just got to add that!

          • HD says:

            LOL! Right!

            • Sha2000 says:

              Wow HD, thank you for teaching me about Sara Baartman. Growing up in NY in the 1970’s a white child I now find that much of my black history knowledge is lacking & I do honestly like to read about it & learn & I feel it respects my friends who sat with me in school & were taught predominately just white history. They never spoke Dr.Kings name in my grammar, middle or HS…how sad is that !!!?!!! What beautiful words I missed until my later years; I have a dream for instance should be MANDATORY for all children to hear & I make sure to teach my white daughters this countries black history so they have the entire picture of the growth of this nation, in mind & spirit.

              Sara Baartman’s story is sad & fascinating! I found this video on her story below. Warning it is not for the office or children. If you watch please stick with it to the end because it she brings up some very valid points however I think they speak to our female society as a WHOLE in this nation, not just black women but a lesson for white women too, including some in the HW’S franchises.

              Rest in peace Sara Baartman.

          • Sha2000 says:

            OH! And just because you are a Dem doesn’t mean that you believe welfare for all & in taxation for everything (just the smart things).

            Sha2000 setting the record straight for blond Democrats everywhere : )

            • Blond Democrats? There must be a joke-but I won’t go there.
              I looked-up Sara Baartman’s story. Very sad. I got the condensed version on Wiki-pedia. About half-way through I realized that her story reminds me of today’s reality television in so many ways.

              • Sha2000 says:

                No joke, it just proves blonds are smart!

              • HD says:

                THANK YOU! I have been saying for a while that reality TV reminds me so much of her story. A lot of people make that connection. It is really sad. So much of the advertising, the media, so much women in GENERAL are equated to body parts but Black people truly have a history of this like we are some sex crazed people with huge Mandigo members and other body parts just waiting to have sex 24 hours a day.

        • quincyil says:

          Not into this discussion either, but it’s happened twice in the Housewives series. Jazon did had some device or something in Stacy’s aunt’s basment and on the last night of Scary Island after Kelly went, the women discussed it.

          So..I think a person mentioning it here might think it goes with a Bravo discussion…

          Not my thing again, but Bravo did it twice….

        • Adgirl says:

          Didn’t the men on the DC show also say or imply that AA men are better endowed? Maybe I was dreaming or fantazising …. 🙂

      • truelifediva says:

        You can’t even rely on that! I like tall guys and I’ve met a few 6’5″ dudes with junk the size of my thumb 😦 And I once had a boyfriend who was 6’3″, wore a size 10 shoes and had a monster in his pants. Girls would literally look him up and down, then shake their heads because of his smallish feet. We were not sexually compatible. Way too much for me to work with. I learned to do a “size check” out on the dance floor whenever I meet a guy after that. Sorry TMI, but this convo is TMI. 😉

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I thought that portion of Craigslist was taken down..To put in the ad wanting someone “well endowed” was weird and I skipped over quickly as it was offensive on too many levels.

      • Sha2000 says:

        Wow, that strange. I showed no reply available to click after HD’s last comment @ 11:21… had to reply a bit up @11:33…weird.

      • truelifediva says:

        No, her ad was SWF seeking SBM. She got “hundreds” of replies and the ones she slept with were all “well endowed”. So ignorant on so many levels. It seemed she wanted someone to ask her to tell some of her lurid escapades but no takers except for one.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Thanks for raising that, HD. I didn’t notice the specifics of the posts in that thread of convo. I skimmed past those posts.

    • Adgirl says:

      @ Sha2000 agree with you about stereotypes about politics too. Same is true of Repub/Conservatives. They are portrayed as all gay-hating, mass polluters or KKK member with IQs of 22.
      My late father was a PHD who worked at UC Berkeley was a R. To him it was all about fiscal issues. My parent’s best friends were a gay couple. Cocktails parties at our house looked like UN. My parents recycled before anyone ever heard of it.
      Dad always said “Conservation IS Conservative”.
      By the way, my dad was the actual scientist who discovered the link between car emissions and its effects on people’s health.

      • Sha2000 says:

        Wow, Adgirl no wonder I like your postings, you are well rounded, I like that : )

      • Anniieee says:

        And I am a blonde artist–who is a republican–who sounds like your father. I am just fiscally conservative. If you look up Human Rights–you will see that the Republicans are the ones – during Reconstruction-after the Civil War, that did the 14th (think) amendment – Equal Rights for everyone. Then in 1890-the Democrats got pissed off at the Republicans about it–(race issues) and the Republicans-then changed their tune. This lasted (the Nadir) until the start of WWII–and finally in the 1960’s–we got “civil rights”. We still have Sundown Towns–all over this nation…We need to get over this ….. we are all just human.

        • Adgirl says:

          I totally agree. R’s and Conservs have bad rep due to the legacy of the Christian Coalition days. Just like D’s are getting a bad rep due to overbearing union control and unrealistic utopian goals.
          Personally I think almost all social issues do not have place in Washington.
          Let people decide & spend by region. I’m in Berkeley so I am more socially liberal. On the other hand why should people in, say, Utah have to live by our standards?
          Viva le Difference!

          • Sha2000 says:

            “Personally I think almost all social issues do not have place in Washington.”

            And I feel the same about religion & the ambiguous “family values” making its way to DC. I’ll decide my personal compass no need to have it dictated to me by a politician who 99% of the time has some questionable ethics issue, that’s “big government” to me.

            Anniieee , if you are going to go that far back, you’ve got to give us credit then for fighting to end slavery. Lincoln may have been a Republican but he was clearly a Liberal Dem in his consciousness.

            • Adgirl says:

              Agree about family values etc. I think that totally belongs in the social heap o’ things that DC needs to stay out of.
              DC- Don’t talk to me about creationism, abortion, gay vs god, divorce, teaching my kids about sex (or giving them condoms), reparations to/from people with no direct relation to the historic injury, denying stem cells, references to God on money or old court buildings etc. Just pay the bills and cut up the credit card.

            • anniieee says:

              If you recheck your history.. it was the republicans that were for equal rights and the abolishment of slavery and equal rights for everyone. The democrats of the time passed bills that made it impossible for african americans to live in “free states” such as Pennsylvania. You could be accused by someone outside of PA as a “runnaway” and hauled off to jail. The republicans fought this law. If you got hauled off–if you were black–you didnt speak to the judge (especially if you were a woman). The lawyer got 500 dollars if you were let go and 1000 if you weren’t. The Republicans tried to change this with the 14 Amendment in 1860’s right after the Civil War. Dems fought them , called them all sorts of racist names and the republicans gave up… 1890. the Nadir years. Republicans have always been for human rights… look at the platform today….. Just check your history–this stuff is not always printed. Read the book… Lies my teacher told me… by Lowell… and then realize most people give a shit about everyone and we are tired as hell of the race card being pulled 170 years later… especially if that person is now sure of all of the faces.

              • anniieee says:

      • Ione says:

        I would LOL but it hurts too much. Because of your father’s findings there have been changes in car construction. Because those changes can be destructive to an engine if not working properly, I have been out several thousand dollars this past week. I probably should have bought another car but with only 70,000 miles for a ’02 car bought new, I thought I would keep it. Found out today I still have a problem. When should one cut their loss? Anyone have suggestion? How about recommendations for new car? Any favorites?

        • Adgirl says:

          I know it’s kinda funny. We had a Vega years ago. It had a catalytic converter and hardly went over 40 mph . All you fault dad!

    • truelifediva says:

      I saw that convo last night but really didn’t want to give it any energy. She brought it up several times then got miffed that no one entertained her stupid little fantasy. SWF seeking SBM is so ignorant in the first place. Those guys probably were average anyways. You know how a tan makes everything look longer, leaner, more muscular 😉 I also read between the lines her insinuation that BM desire old ass WM. No, her desperate add brought out all the losers in her area. She is no more desirable than any other S_F placing an ad on Craigslist. An ad saying SWF seeking S_M = desperate for dick. So chortle all you want. You are not cute and your story isn’t either. Not impressed with your nasty adventures in whoring.

    • American Idiot says:

      HD:
      1. I think you are right.
      2. I don’t think you went overboard.
      3. Many of us probably found the post offensive, but just scrolled by. Kudoz to you for taking it on.

      to you for bringing this up. I, like many others I guess, found it offensive, but just read and scrolled.

      • American Idiot says:

        oops, no way to edit. Just stop reading at #3.

        • HD says:

          Thank you all very much! I know this was kind of a TMI conversation but she took it there and I just had to follow up.

          @ Need a Hobby, I am cracking up at “performance art”. Okay!

          @TrueLifeDiva-I didn’t even want to go there about Craigslist. Craigslist? Okay…*deadpan*

          • No one should be reduced to body parts but I was in a legal profession that allowed me to see hundreds of male members.Here is what I know.
            The smallest black man I have seen is bigger than the average white man.The largest oriental man is smaller than the average white man.
            Black flacid to hard ratio is much less than white mens flacid to hard ratio.Black men never get as rock hard as white men.In my personal extended professional opinion.
            The smallest I have seen belonged to a white man and was smaller than my thumb.The largest I have seen belonged to a white man and was bigger than my forearm.
            And that is all I have to say about that!LOL

      • I also found that post offensive, but I find most of Jeepers posts to be creepy and weird so I usually just scroll past them.
        She’s claimed in the past to be 78 years old, she also said she was disabled and never leaves the house, so I don’t know how much crazy sex she is having.

        • Adgirl says:

          is her last name Creepers?

        • truelifediva says:

          I read where she mentioned being disabled but not the part about being 78. Now her story REALLY sounds kray kray! Either this shit happened in the 50’s – 60’s before the internet via the newspaper classifieds or her Craigslist posting NEVER included a picture. NO single man of ANY race, much less “hundreds”, are breaking their neck to sex a 78yr old Single White Female in a wheelchair. GTOH!!!

    • Smompy says:

      I think this myth persists, in part, because it is embraced by many African-American men…which isn’t exactly surprising I guess. I mean, given the choice, most males would prefer to be seen as sexually impressive & powerful than be thought of as small and (probably) unable to satisfy. Just as an FYI, there’s a pretty good book by Scott Poulson-Bryant (IIRC it’s called “Hung”) that’s devoted to just this subject.

      • truelifediva says:

        Trojan’s “Magnum” condom sales are proof of that. I couldn’t tell you how many loose fitting Magnums I’ve encountered in my time. The boyfriend I mentioned in my TMI post upthread tried to act like there wasn’t a condom that could fit him and therefore we should forego them learned a little lesson from me. I’m no fool, Howie Mandell has put too many condoms over his head in the 80’s to ever allow me to buy that lie from a guy. My first encounter with that boyfriend almost didn’t happen because he kept “accidentally” breaking the condom. After the 3rd try, I noticed he was using his thumb to cause the break. He thought I would be a silly girl and allow him to go condom-less but I told him, “I guess it ain’t happening then.” Amazingly, the 4th condom did not break. Nor did any other regular sized condom break the entire time we dated.
        Sorry, TMI again 😉

        • Adgirl says:

          Aren’t magnums the male version of the “vanity” dress sizes in the women’s dept (size 12 is labeled 8)?

          • truelifediva says:

            Magnums are bigger than the average condom. I’ve met a guy or two who carry them, implying they are just “too large for regular condoms” but when it was time to do the do, the condom fit like a dish washing glove. Condoms stretch to fit. Male egos cause many men to claim “I need a bigger fit”. Plus Magnums cost several dollars more per box, so Trojan caters to that myth. I had a bff who bragged she had to buy Magnums for her man because he was “too large”. I blew up a regular condom in front of her and asked, “Bigger than this?”

    • tuzentswurth says:

      I find all of Jeepers posts contradictory. I too found this post about her Craigslist post offensive and “creepy”. Who advertises on Craigslist for random sex partners? Nice.

      • MickeyMouth says:

        No snark intended, but isn’t that how Alex and Simon met?

        • truelifediva says:

          Why no! They met on an “international dating site”. I think Alex admitted it was Match.com later but I’m not sure.

          • MickeyMouth says:

            I didn’t think it was Craigslist but I remember a scene with Alex and Bethenny where she talks about meeting Simon and she was just looking for a booty call. Not exactly to the degree of looking for large penis but she wasn’t looking for love/marriage just sex.

            • Diana says:

              Yes, that was true. Not Craigslist, but some other site. It was love at first bone. I don’t mean that sarcastically. they really did fall for each other after they met. I think it is stupid that Craigslist had to take down that section. Those sorts of services are now appearing in disguise elsewhere on the site. (Not that I would know!)

        • tuzentswurth says:

          You are right Mickey, I remember Alex saying that. That creeped me out big time too! Not my cup of tea and I suppose sometimes things work out OK …seems to have for Silex, but why tell everyone in the TV audience? TMI, you’ve got small children.

    • winatlife says:

      Wow HD. You know what? When I first read the Jeepers post, I thought…”YEAH!” At least we can be known for something, ie being well endowed or whatever. I felt funny about it, but I was going to remain silent. But HD you are right. We are so much more as a people. We are Americans like you, and just want to get along and blend as much as possible while respecting our differences, which are very few in the grand scheme of things. Gives me a ton of faith about what is possible. Sometimes it’s hard. I am a regular poster on a few nationalist websites, and the hatred is deep there. I am greatful for the the Lynnfam. Real Americans of all stripes, who can respect each other, with a common theme. We hate Jill Zarin, KK a close second, and NeNe closing in.

      All the best, LOVE this blog!

      • Waxdiva says:

        She’s been trying to sell it for a little over a year, but it’s listed now as “court ordered.” Either her ex went before a judge and is forcing the sale, but more likely she hasn’t been paying the mortgage and neither she nor her ex can come up with the money to bring it current

        • Sha2000 says:

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Remember Danielle’s reluctance to fix anything before putting it on the market because her ex would get half the profits? Betting she just stopped making mortgage payments out of spite.

    I’m assuming Kim Z’s new song is “Google Me” and not “Goggle Me”? I think it would be funny if it was sung to the tune of “Tardy for the Party,” just with different words. She could keep coming up with new lyrics each season, but still have the same song.

    (Sung to “Don’t be tardy for the party” bridge):
    Ooh, you gotta Google Me (oh-whoa, oh-whoa)
    Ooh, you gotta Google Me (oh-whoa, oh-whoa)

    • Sha2000 says:

      Is that not the worst song ever? I thought Money can’t buy you class & Real close were bad; Google me is an ear bleeder.

    I can’t remember who linked the Re1ease.net site, but thank you very much! I don’t have cable anymore and i’m always in search of links that let me catch up on my favorite shows online. I use casttv.com and of course hulu, but it’s always nice to have another source.

    Thanks again!

    • I think that was me.
      I’m always trying to spread the word. Lol. I see SOO many people online commenting about how they can’t watch the shows, but everything is available online somewhere.
      I have a page on my blog with lists of all the tv sites I know.
      There is even a knew one someone turned me onto that lets you watch the channels live! It doesn’t always work, sometimes there are problems with the site, but if it’s working tonight I’ll finally be watching RHOA in real time with everyone else.

  17. TLM says:

    I just heard it now. I have to say I actually think it’s *better* than Tardy for the Party, although you can hear that Kim still can’t sing and is white-knuckling it to make it through. I know a lot of people thought TFTP was catchy in some way, but it grated on me to no end, and I wanted to strangle Andy C for playing it so incessantly on WWHL. Was Bravo getting a kickback or something for that?!?? Ugh. Just to clarify, I won’t be buying EITHER song or putting them on my iPod unless I take up masochism, but in terms of comparing the two melodies, “Google Me” bothers me less.

  18. Adgirl says:

    Bravo must have enough RH songs to sell as a package.
    I hear that convenience stores like 7-11 play unpleasant music outside to discourage teens from loitering.

    This picture is just priceless:
    http://www.thehollywoodgossip.com/2010/10/coming-soon-a-snooki-dating-show/

    Yikes, so Bravo WAS making money from Tardy for the Party. At least that provides some explanation. I assume they aren’t making anything off She by Sheree or ClosetFreak — I assume all are defunct — but what about Skinnygirl Margaritas??!? That would be the golden egg, so to speak.

    • Adgirl says:

      Pretty sure we can tell which merchandise or books Bravo has a piece of by how it is showcased or ignored by the show.
      SKM seems sanctioned. Kandi’s music and webcast no. LuAnn’s single yes. Ramoner’s jewelry line … I can’t tell, except she always wears the same necklace and earrings so I’ve wondered about that.

  20. WindyCityWondering says:

    Lynn, thanks for another great blog!
    RHOA has been the franchise I can’t watch the entire season of ….too catty, too much self importance where none is merited (except Kandi who is interesting and talented).

    What I have never understood was NeNe and her need to be slighted and then apologized to? Who constantly says you owe me an apology and then demands one when the other person says they didn’t realize they offended to begin with? If one is actually given then it isn’t enough! She invades personal space and then gets pissy when the person backs away or attempt to get her nasty hands out of their face. If her brains were in her behind then she would be Einstein! But alas they are not so we will be treated to a Teresa on crack season of NeNe noise and nonsense….

    • quincyil says:

      “Who constantly says you owe me an apology and then demands one whe the other person says they didn’t realize they offended to begin with?”

      I think Jill fits that description. The entire season was based on something Bethenny didn’t know she had done.

  21. emily says:

    “Kandi refused to give Bravo a portion of the proceeds, and rightly so!”

    I think you’re on to something here. I thought the same thing about Bethenny’s books versus Jill/Luann/Teresa’s. Not too sure on dates here, but I think Bethenny’s first book was already released or already in the works when she joined housewives, so they couldn’t add book proceeds into their contracts.
    We’ve mentioned before, way back when Jill was hawking “the book” on WWHL, that Bethenny is rarely saying “buy my ___”. Nor does she plug links to Amazon, etc. in her Bravo blogs like the others do. (Correct me if I’m wrong. I’m pretty sure she atleast links to her own web site and Twitter but not saying go buy this ware)
    Is it that Bravo said, hey if you want to hawk your product on blogs and have Andy hawk for you on WWHL, you have to pony up proceeds and she said “No thanks, my books sell themselves, TYVM!”
    Hope that Kandi was equally business-savvy as our dear Bethenny, and this is the reason we aren’t constantly hearing “buy my song on iTunes”

      He was suing her for $5 mil and TMZ says that it was settled to the satisfaction of both parties. Can’t imagine Danielle has anywhere near that money, so what I’m thinking is she may have to publish retractions to what she wrote in her book re him and some kind of a public apology.

      Anyone have another scenario?

      • Sha2000 says:

        Maybe she’s brought up some $h1t on him or she wants to work on a “show” together?

        • nathania says:

          she either has dirt or she knows someone who does. He’s an idiot, that much is for certain.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Think D had some evidence and he just wanted some $$$. No way did she have $5million and that was probably proven…. none of these womans have a good grasp of math – Remember Teresa’s $5million mcmansion……

      • truelifediva says:

        “Everything was settled to everyone’s satisfaction” is the phrase I was told to repeat concerning a lawsuit that I brought against a major retailer for discrimination in 2000 and settle out of court. It is a standard non-disclosure clause.

        • Waxdiva says:

          We don’t know details re their settlement. If part of the agreement was to not speak of the settlement, then what you described would apply to them.

          In your case, was there anything written in which you agreed to not speak of the case or your settlement? If you didn’t sign off on non-disclosure, then you could yap all you want about your case. There are many other ‘standard’ lines used…

          • truelifediva says:

            I can only speak of it to a lawyer or accountant “if it is necessary.” A co-worker at the time said to me, “Well it’s a good thing you blabbed about it to everyone already.”
            My case was handled by the state of California’s department of fair employment and housing, and the file is as thick as a phone directory. Sometimes I let friends just read the documents ;-). Also, I have a 30″ x 10″ blow up of the settlement check on display in my home office. The home office in the condo I bought with my settlement check 😉
            And this company still sends me gift cards for free panties :-), I just can’t ever apply for a position with the company or “speak” of the lawsuit details. “It was settled to everyone’s satisfaction.” Wink Wink!

    • Adgirl says:

      Depos are hugely expensive so I’m not surprised about this.

      • Waxdiva says:

        He knew when he filed that she didn’t have $5 mil, so his intent wasn’t for money. There are ways for him to get the settlement money (future earnings, her part of the house sale), but that would take forever to total the settlement amount.

        I’m sure that whichever way the attorneys were being paid; if contingency, the deposition is factored into the final settlement; if hourly, it’s just added to their hourly fee.

        I doubt that the cost of a deposition was the impetus for a settlement on either side.

        • justanothermary says:

          He probably settled for a small amount out of future earnings and full disclosure of the “truth”. She does have new show so that has to translate into some kind of income. I’m sure his attorneys know he’s just about as skeevie as she is and it would be pretty tough to get a jury to award anything to anyone in a situation like that.

          • Waxdiva says:

            Maher didn’t want to settle because his guns were loaded with more Danielle dirt. Danielle’s atty contacted his atty and they settled on Friday. They signed off on a non-disclosure, so no one’s talking… but someone has to know something! Even though they cannot talk about it, someone’s going to let something leak.

            Danielle has been laying low. If her show were a ‘go,’ she would be twittering and blogging about it. Her contract with Bravo makes it very clear that she cannot appear on her own show with any other network until two years after her deal with Bravo expires. She’s screwed.

    HD, I left you a long reply up thread where you mentioned Sara Baartman. My reply is out of sequence because there was no more room; please look for it & let me know what you think, so much more relevant to us as women that these HW shows…

    Thanks,
    Susan

    • HD says:

      Your reply held so much meaning because there is so much of our history that is not taught and Sara Baartman represents so many women as you said, regardless of color. It just so happens that sex is equated A LOT with Black women but all women can benefit from knowing her story. Your comment shows wisdom and understanding and that is what life is all about. It is about growth! We are much more better in our total sum than our parts. 🙂

      I wrote a poem about this once…

      I want nothing real from you
      And
      You want nothing real from me
      We met on the corner of simplicity
      In a downtown motel
      Boasting rooms rented by the hour
      My legs caught your eye
      Toned from endless hours of walking the boulevard
      The legs of a dancer
      Studied at Julliard
      Classical ballet
      Yet I learned in NYC
      More money was made on my knees
      Than dancing on my toes
      Who knows
      If that is true
      All I know is that right now
      I discard thoughts of dancing on Broadway
      While I dance for you
      To misogynistic tunes
      That reinforce
      My sad belief
      That the day I was born
      The unwanted pups in the kennel
      Made room
      For another bitch….

    ” Kandi aired a telephone conversation that NeNe’s husband Greg had with a radio personality on her internet radio program.”

    I heard the conversation but had no idea Kandi aired it. Did that happen while filming? WOW NeNe must really despise Kandi now.

    • Adgirl says:

      I heard a radio interview between a male DJ and Gregg where Gregg complained about spending $300K on NeNe to get her on the show and make her famous. Gregg wants his money back. I never thought that anything to do with Kandi. Maybe there is another interview??

    • truelifediva says:

      Kandi was not the person who released that convo. It started with a recorded phone convo between Gregg and a radio DJ that the Leakes owed a large sum of money to (forgot the amount but at least 5 digits). After months of being blown off over repayment, he played the secret recording on the air. After that, several media outlets replayed it and transcripts were printed on blogs.

  25. TLM says:

    Speaking of Jersey Shore… in my wildest days, I could never have imagined being as skanky as both the men and women are on this show. Before I actually watched it, I thought the show was just about stupid people getting drunk. Well, it’s still about that, but it’s also about the women in the house jumping into bed with their disgusting guy roommates, and the guys lining up women from the clubs for sex, then figuring out how to kick them out of the house afterward, get rid of the “fat” ones (ie those who aren’t borderline anorexic), and on and on. I think Mike “the Situation” is a disgusting pig. How advertisers have picked this guy up to endorse their products is stunning to me. He treats women like used Kleenex and is a total idiot. Not that it matters other than in terms of advertising, but he is also the least attractive of any of the men in the house.

    What is most amazing to me is that the Jersey Shore people are still young enough to live with their parents, and it sounds like most of them still do. How do you return home to your parents and family after the entire world has seen you jumping in and out of bed with everyone else, and acting in such a vile way? I couldn’t believe Mike actually was making accusations of Angelina’s infidelity. With the way he lives his life, he’ll be lucky if he isn’t diagnosed with HIV in six months.

    While “the Situation’s” rules and musings about women are insulting and sometimes inhuman, the fact that this waste of space continues to find girls to sleep with him tells me he isn’t the entire problem. There is a twisted culture now of young women who have been misguided into thinking sex equals power, but it is an illusion. Soon they find themselves being looked down upon and they realize they are rather powerless after all their exploits. I really feel this era began with Britney Spears and the Spice Girls.

    The “sexing up” of young women is unfortunate. This was not supposed to be the end goal of the womens’ movement. The womens’ movement was about not being unfairly judged for one’s choices, such as to live together or put off having kids in favor of a career or simply because you didn’t want to have them. It was not to be judged for working outside the home if you had kids. It was to plan your family and use contraception not to have more kids than you intended. It wasn’t supposed to be the groundwork for young girls becoming amateur strippers sending naked pictures of themselves around, or trying to rack up as many sexual conquests as they could. Nor was the end-goal supposed to be every teenage girl wearing sweatpants with words plastered across the seat of their pants, or jeans so low that thongs and ass cracks are visible in normal circumstances. What happened to women making smart choices and protecting their emotional and physical health?

    Our culture seems to have taken what is really sexual addiction, and glamorized it. I think some of these women feel they are nothing unless they can get a guy off, and that that is an accomplishment. Which is just sad.

    • Sha2000 says:

      The “sexing up” of young women is unfortunate. This was not supposed to be the end goal of the womens’ movement.

      See the video I posted up thread @ 11:33 Re:Sara Baartman, hang in until the end. In my opinion it’s a lesson for ALL women in our society NOT just African American ladies. It’s okay to be sexy but to an extent & at what price?

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Having watched the show – they are sadly twisted children/adults but then again they have no goals, no education and do not value themselves as anything but players in their own social system. They do not have jobs, they do not have responsibilities and they don’t seem to have parents who guide them to maturity or teach them to be part of the greater society they will one day be part of…. Why do I watch the show? Because my teenagers do and believe me – they have stronger and more negative opinions of these kids than we do!

      • Sha2000 says:

        Never saw it & never will but my kids are young & not allowed to watch, I told them I get an itemized list from the cable provider on whats being watched & they believe me. AS a young woman growing up on LI & Queens & spending time in Manhattan I avoided those types like the plague, no way would I watch them on tv.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Oh this isn’t like “grab the popcorn, Jersey Shores is on!” – they are 16, 18 and they asked if we could watch it (internet news sparked their interest) – so we did for two episodes, and that was the end of it. JS is an alien world to my guys and I was glad they asked to watch it so we could discuss it.

          And that is shutting the barn door after the horses have run away. There is no vaccination shot for any STD. Valtrex would be too little, too late. I heard that rumor also, but woman attributed to the quote came out with a statement saying she never said it.

    • Smompy says:

      It’s deeply disturbing to me that the vile, ugly, amoral cast members of this show are looked up to by young people. But I was equally disturbed to learn that between his Jersey Shore & DWTS salaries, his guests appearances and various “endorsement deals,” Mike “The Situation” (who IMO is a dead ringer for Elmer J. Fudd) would be raking in more than FIVE MILLION DOLLARS this year!

    • nathania says:

      I have mixed feelings about it because I feel like women can’t be fully free until they are free sexually as well.

      If they want to have one-night stands because THEY want to, then that is their choice.

      What I don’t see is much change in the minds of men, and this was demonstrated with that show, where the guys go out and drink and choose a certain kind of girl as a sex toy, while they are looking for a woman who says ‘no’ to settle down with and have kids with. The same madonna/whore myth is in operation, at least among the stupid men, like the ones that are showcased on Jersey shore.

      I have never had a satisfying one-night stand, which is why I don’t bother with them. I’m talking male or female, it has never done a thing for me. But that’s me, and if other women are different, then good for them. If young women today know their bodies well enough to be satisfied that way, then I believe that is healthier than holding on to ‘virginity’ until marriage when the male is not also required to do so and when they may not find satisfaction in the marital sex either. They may be sexually incompatible and not find out until it is too late and they have a marriage contract.

      I don’t think sexual freedom for women is a bad thing, as long as it is true freedom and society isn’t bringing some forced sexualization to bare on them.

      Young women today do have to compete with a ridiculous amount of internet porn and that can add pressure. It’s hard to look at what is going on and know if they feel freer than my generation did or if they are acting out of cultural dictates. Women are sexual by nature, it’s ironic to me that in each generation women model themselves after icons whose sexuality is generally not dictated by an inner voice buy by financial concerns. What seems to be about sex is really about making money for the pros that become famous, it’s all about the benjamins so to speak and not about sex at all. Or in more puritanical years, about finding a breadwinner by appearing chaste. It never seems to be purely about female sexual desire.

    Wondering about the multiple personality troll attack last night….Rainbows struck me as someone who is an adult who knew/is related to the NJ families – it is a small town and people talking about other people is a pasttime. When someone make it out of that small town/place (via education, career, marriage, etc) there is resentment towards that individual. IMO the tidbits about Albert being bisexual and Tommy having a love child were what set the troll attack off. The whole calling Rainbow’s parents, talk of attorneys really made me think of Iron Hand Caroline! I don’t think Caroline was the troll(s) but then again she never does her own dirty work!!
    Everyone was so awesome last night in handling these trolls with maturity, tongue n cheek humor and respectful responses – Lynn has a strong family here and I don’t think the troll was prepared for that.

If she had a point to make she should have made it, there was plenty of missed opportunities on her part.

        Just being honest.

        • justanothermary says:

          Much of what Rainbow said was pretty common knowledge to the Lynn Fambly. The other stuff she could/would not substantiate so . . . A large grain of salt.

            Very true, but I take pretty much everything said by anyone on the internet with a large grain of salt.

I just have to go with my gut.

  28. Olivia says:

    It may not be my business to say so, but having read through the posts of the last few days I would be very careful engaging “over the rainbow”, or whatever his/her moniker is, since that person is seriously throwing out a lot of unconfirmed gossip onto this site and I don’t think it is a good idea to speculate over what he/she is saying.

    We have no idea who this person is and what their intention may be, but there is a lot of scurrilous stuff being presented as “fact” by this poster that could lead to some very serious charges against Lynn. This person is posing as someone with an awful lot of “inside” information that may not even be close to the truth. It is very damaging to the people involved and without public knowledge I question the veracity of what and why is being said and who is making those claims.

    The best reminder may be to think of “Tweet Maxine” who makes claims with very little substance.

    Just my two cents. Some of that stuff is pretty inflammatory.

    • Sha2000 says:

      Well most of us DID tell her we were skeptical; good advice never the less O.

      • Sha2000 says:

        AND, that’s why I previously stated that I don’t agree w/those here who suggest contacting a trustee for example or the dept. of consumer affairs. It is **wrong** looked at from any angle in my opinion; it’s a tv show keep it in perspective.

      • Olivia says:

        I have been out of town for a few days and just catching up.

        However, it sickens me to think that a “woman” would post using “sh#itting” as part of their screen name. Just does not add up.

        What little I read of his/her comments seem to suggest a husband working on Wall Street but the person coming through the discussion sounds a little, shall we say, extreme?

        I certainly do not consider myself a member of the “grammar or spelling” police but there is a certain lack of subtly attached to the posts. Like there may be a “problem” behind the wording.

        Lynn goes out of her way to provide us with a safe forum from which to express ourselves and I would hate to see her in trouble because of some moron who apparently feels the need to unload unsubstantiated stuff on her blogsite.

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      @olivia-

      Please understand the spirit and tone of my question. I am not trying to argue but am genuinely curious.

      How do you believe that this could hurt Lynn? just trying to understand

      BTW I too, was really concerned about the molestation accusations against the Manzos. VERY serious stuff. that bothered more than anything else that was posted. But @rainbow backed down and danced around it.

      • Sha2000 says:

        I missed that part Onemore.

        • OneMoreinBoston says:

          It was in her initial postings. I questioned her repeatedly and she backed down very quickly about it. Very, very dangerous accusations to make against businessmen with wives and children, who have to make a living in their community. Not to mention they are being accused of something criminal with nothing to back it up. Innuendo is a very scary thing, and could really damage both of their reputations.
          Bothered me to no end.

          • Sha2000 says:

            Yes that’s not right & is hurtful. IF it were true why is she claiming it here? Isn’t it her responsibility to contact the proper people? It smells like BS.

      • Olivia says:

        It could hurt Lynn because it can be made to appear that this site is open to any and all charges involving people without any substantiation.

        Charges of sexual misconduct that has never been part of a public record, and citing them on a blog is not a public record btw, can be taken as slanderous. It is one thing to comment on the behavior exhibited during the series, or if the public is aware of lawsuits via public disclosure, but to throw out charges of this nature can lead to some serious consequences.

        Taken what is written on another blog and embellishing it for the sake of appearing to have “inside information” is not cool.

        Simply writing something repeatedly does not make it so.

        • OneMoreinBoston says:

          But wouldn’t the slander charge be applied to the poster and not to Lynn?

          Although if she leaves it up, I suppose it is a claim that could be made.

          But is Lynn expected to censor derogatory material?

          Don’t posters have a right to free speech? No matter how crazy that free speech is?

      • truelifediva says:

        I first came to this site in the middle of the “sympathy card” campaign. There are people out in cyberspace who misunderstood what was going on and now call this site “crazy” and think Lynn is similiar to PizzaGirl and TweetMaxine. I once got into it with someone on another site who was obsessed with her hatred of this blog. This person now cyberstalks me and regularly copies and pastes my comments here onto another blog and describes my avatar whenever I change it to let me know she is watching me. What she is getting out of stalking me is a mystery. My point is someone with bad intentions could take what is posted on here, attribute it directly to Lynn and try to bring legal involvement to her.

        • Waxdiva says:

          “someone with bad intentions could take what is posted on here, attribute it directly to Lynn and try to bring legal involvement to her.” Doubt it.

          Unless they have nothing else to do in their law practice as this would suck time out of their life for an unprecendented result; unless the poster has written something so outlandish, disgusting and detrimental to the life of the subject of the post that it would result in their suffering mentally or bodily harm came to them because of the post. There are so many ‘ifs’ and it would be so difficult to prove that it’s ridiculous.

          Again, I am not hesitant, afraid or intimidated by others to post anything on blogs, but that’s just me. Everyone can decide for themselves…

        • Sha2000 says:

          I know. I got a friend request from a JerseyGirl on a political blog I haven’t been on for months last night in my email. I don’t know what she thinks she’s proving other than I used the same moniker & she can Google.

      • nathania says:

        that part really bothered me and that goes too far in my opinion…she would only get herself in trouble by making such accusations in my opinion. Most of the time folks who file those suits lose if the person is a public figure but that is serious defamation though that person willingly appeared on that show so it’s a crap shoot.

    • cdnfillie58 says:

      Most of what Rainbow was saying had already been written or read in other blogs and media reports..she may have embellished a little and made it out like she had inside info but I think most of us took it with a grain of salt, and not too seriously……it was seen as just Joysee Gawwwsip by most of us 😛

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Jeepers posted that she thought Tommy may have tried to molest Lexi…..
      That’s inflammatory IMO. And without any foundation.

      Rainbow is obvious and people were skeptical. Others are not so obvious, IMO.

      • This is not Jerry Falwell having sex with his mother in the outhouse. Obvious satire. Or is it?

        The rules of libel and slander still apply to a blog. Since social media is evolving, the laws are changing rapid fire. Do you really want to be part of a landmark legal case? But basically…this is harmful speech. It can harm the person it is directed at, and could harm the owner of the blog. Just because you think it doesn’t mean you should say it or write it. If it can be substantiated with source documents (as per the legal documents re: Guidice, Ladybug, Manzo, ect) or cited with a reputable media source, or from their own blog/twitter, it is just an unsubstantiated rumor. Oh, and put your real name on it!

        If you still really feel compelled to scream rumors, get an anonymous Twitter account and scream it to the world.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Totally agree – it was gossip/rumor without the factual backup we deal in. I would be surprised if Rainbow came back but it is a given that the troll will follow and dog her because that is sadly their MO.
      As for trouble coming Lynn’s way – she has no part in what drive by posters do and it really was a bit disconcerting to have that happen here. Those of us who were here when it happened knew it was for their benefit/enjoyment not ours and they were called out respectfully and continuously – this isn’t the blog environment they would be interested in or accepted in.

    • Waxdiva says:

      They are public people. In a nutshell, they would have to prove that Lynn and Lynn’s posters wrote with the intent of malice and then they (HW) could sue for defamation (good luck with that!). They would have to prove a LOT to proceed with suing someone who made their opinion known or is stating (to their knowledge) a fact. Lynn would also have to have known that the poster was going to write their post and HER intent was malicious. There is a ton of rigamarole and case law would have to be sited as this is new territory and laws are constantly changing.

      So, there are many blogs that write much, much worse things about RHONJ, much worse than Lynn’s site and none of them have yet to be sued. You all can take what you will from this… I’m just sayin’ and I’m going to keep writing.

      • Need a Hobby says:

        For public figures as I understand it, one must show not only malice, but also that the person(s) knowingly and intentionally promulgated false info with intent to defame.

        • Waxdiva says:

          Uh, yeah… like I said, it’s a hornet’s nest and for someone to take a case re a ‘he said/she said’ on a blog site whose topic is public figures is nuts.

      • I think that “rainbow” was offering this information hoping that Lynn would take it seriously and turn it into a blog post. THEN Lynn could be sued for defamation and every one of her blogs would be in question.

        I read all the posts and here is what we know “rainbow”:
        She like’s shit, she likes the song “over the rainbow”, she has a husband who is never home, and she is a little nuts.

        Here is what we know about Dina:
        She loves twittering about her cat’s shit, she wanted to walk down the isle to “over the rainbow”, she has a husband who is never home, and she is a little nuts.

        Just sayin…

        • POW! You nailed it. Now “rainbow” can play with Jerry Falwell in the outhouse together.

        • OneMoreinBoston says:

          So it was a set up.

          makes sense. Why do they think Lynn would be so stupid?

          • Because they are stupid and they think everyone else is too. Just look at their interviews on the show.

            Dina: “I left the show bc of Danielle”
            “I quit my job to spend more time with my teenage daughter”
            Teresa: “I was just being nice”
            “My husband and I have sex twice a day”

            Dina posted a pic of her and Tommy for the first time ever the day after I wrote a blog about their bad marriage.
            Teresa posts pics of her making pizza after I talk about her admitting on the show that she doesn’t make her own pizza.
            Teresa told me I was funny and followed me on twitter. When that didn’t get me to stop writing shit about her she went back to blocking the very next day….

            They are all stupid, and too stupid to realize that other people aren’t as stupid as they are.

        • Waxdiva says:

          (golf claps) The one thing that wasn’t clear was she/he claimed that TM was the father of a child. Never heard this one…. is she getting her HHs confused or is this another unsubstantiated rumor?

          • She also said that Albert was bi and made some other random insane allegations that I don’t believe.
            Dina said on twitter once that Tommy likes to cross dress. So if “rainbow” is her it wouldn’t be the first time she started a rumor about her husband.

        • nathania says:

          thats a chilling perspective and I hope everyone on here reads it.

    • Waxdiva says:

      My longer post is below… but short reply is: really wouldn’t worry about writing whatever you want to post. It’s ridiculous that anyone would hesitate to post here. Most important fact: they are public people.

    Posted this great blog. Sorry I failed to give credit. The link works from her post. It is a fab read. U will b able to recognize the “anonymous” posters.

    oncommonground.blogspot.com/2008/04/real-housewives-of-new-jersey.html

    • WSL, no problem!
      The “On Common Ground” blog has been around for ages now. It is in all of our bookmarks! It comes up every time these trolls roll around. They HAVE to be the same people or from the same gene pool!

      I have to think it could be even weirder than anyone on this group could ever suspect. These cast members have assistants w/ assistants. This sort of PR could be part of their job description for all we know.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      thanks WSL – I read it a long time ago and thought about it again last night during the troll attack – same kind of thoughts…..

  30. nancy says:

    Help me to understand. How can anyone’s post hurt Lynn legally?

  31. TLM says:

    I apologize if someone already addressed this, since I can’t find it. But what is up with Jeana saying Allan is her “chef” when he is clearly the guy she was dating on RHOC who supposedly lived in Arizona? And they said she wasn’t seeing him anymore? He supposedly had a lot of money as well, so did he move from Arizona to live with her? I can’t believe she is actually paying him to be a chef for her. Or was he a chef who pretended to be her boyfriend? That whole scenario is as fake and suspect as the house they claimed was Slade’s house on “Date My Ex”, which Bravo clearly rented to stage the show.

    • quincyil says:

      She lives alone and goes out all of the time so I don’t think he is her chef. She had finacial problems with her mortgage and had to beg the government for help in decreasing her monthly payment. She probably is hiding her financail problems. I know that Kara said something about having to work her way through school so Jeana must not be giving her money. Oh, the house gets rented out for weekend weddings. I’m thinking of having a wedding there and inviting everyone. 3 days… bring a swim suit.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      So did Bravo hire Allan for the Thintervention show? Should could have started seriously dating him after her filming was over. Interesting…who would introduce their boyfriend as their chef (maybe an inside joke?) unless it was to impress others?

    • truelifediva says:

      I guess I’m a little confused also but for different reasons. Wouldn’t a chef be able to prepare calorie controlled meals for Jeanna? I kicked started my weight loss journey a few years ago by doing Nutrisystem. Most diet plans like Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, and E-diets count your calories and only allow the minimum for your gender. Why isn’t her chef/cook preparing 1200-1500 calorie daily meal plans for her? Seems simple to me.

      • quincyil says:

        She made a joke about her boyfriend/chef eating all of the food. His stomach is rather large. Jackie Warner was taken in when she was told he was her chef too. It’s the same guy from Arizona whose son played baseball with Jeana oldest son. He wore cowboy boots and brought her roses in a limo for the date at the St. Regis Hotel. He was supposed to be wealthy, but with Jeana’s ability to lie might have been a local fry coat with a talent for fried twinkies.

      • quincyil says:

        Jeana has been doing poorly and it’s now week five. I think she told her daughter is was six pounds down when they were having mani pedis. The exercise and diet is designed for her to lose 5 lbs per week. She’s drinking and eating junk. We will see the results of her lie detector test tonight.

        The chef/boyfriend should be able to cook for her, but no one can control what goes into your mouth.

        She’s really not that heavy. I think she’s in the 160’s and is 5’6″.
        She wants to return to being a playboy centerfold, but I don’t think that will be easy.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          IMO Jeanna didn’t really want to be on this show – but she needs some income and will get paid even if she doesn’t lose any weight. When Jackie confronted her on the coconut shrimp and champaign – Jeanna was lying like a rug and about as sincere as the cat that ate the canary.

        • truelifediva says:

          I’m 5’5″ and fluctuate between 150-160 lbs. I wear a 6-8 and nowhere NEAR as fluffy as Jeanna. Did you see my avatar with the vinyl pants showing off my midsection? The screen say she is 168lb, but she looks to be over 200lbs. I know she is apple shaped, but at 5’6″ 130-160 lbs is a normal weight range. Why does she look so blocky? If she is only 10-15lbs overweight (for t.v.) , why does her belly stick out further than her breasts? I know, skinny arms and legs, large mid-section. But the person I see on screen and her alleged weight do not match up. Why lie?

          • Buffywood says:

            It’s funny as I was thinking the same thing the other night. I am in the same range as you which led me to think one of a few things:

            1) I must look a hell of a lot worse than I think I do

            2) TV puts on more than the 15 lbs they say

            3) She is lying about how much she weighs

            4) Maybe it has to do with muscle vs. fat (muscle weighing more). As an ex-competitive athlete this was my “wishful thinking” kicking in.

            Boy am I glad I was not the only one thinking about this.

            • quincyil says:

              As we age, fat goes to the abdomen. She has a lot of fat under her chin and in her arms also. I think she probably has a small frame like Bethenny Frankel who at the same height and weighs 115 lbs. I think that was Jeana’s weight at the time of her Playboy shoot in the 80’s too.
              I think years of dieting and menopause have affected Jeana.

              • justanothermary says:

                We are all built differently too, in that we all carry weight different. I’m 5’10” and feel I look good at about 170. I have a friend the same height who could easily go 200 and look much better than me. I’m short waisted and long legged, she is more evenly proportioned.

        • nathania says:

          I am so glad I read this! I forgot about the lie detector, that should be really interesting.

  32. Wall St Lady says:

    WindyCity
    KL thinks Miss B is a “good business woman”. Hoda is a media friend who attended the wedding.
    U know Kim K , Paris Hilton &
    Miss B all started out w/ a porn film. Whose was 1st ?

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      Bethanny’s was a true soft core porno. She was an actress, auditioned, got the part and then played the role. She is a the porn star.

      Paris and Kim had sex tapes that were taken by their then lovers. After breaking up, then these guys put the tapes on the market.

      It has been speculated that both Kim K. and Paris were willing participants in the release, for me the jury’s out.

      But both sex tapes are amatuer porn. Paris H’s was taken with what looks like night vision, so her eyes are like crazed devil eyes. Not too sexy.

    • quincyil says:

      B is older .. so first?

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      wow I knew about Kim and Paris – I thought B made a low budget slasher flick! so if I guessed I’d say B was first since she is older than the other two?

      • quincyil says:

        Bethenny has an intersting past. I wonder why she didn’t defend Alex in the two times she was attacked of nude photos.

      • quincyil says:

        Bethenny has an intersting past. I wonder why she didn’t defend Alex in the two times she was attacked of nude photos.

        • HD says:

          I am sitting here thinking the same thing. Why when they asked her is she would pose for Playboy or take nude pics, something like that she said, “I work for Pepperidge Farms” or something like that. Like that was not wholesome. Honey you have pictures of you nude on the internet and did a movie. I am not knocking her but let’s keep it real.

          • icantstandthetoxicity says:

            I agree with you HD!

          • Need a Hobby says:

            That was in context of now, that it wouldn’t be a smart move in her current career. Not a “moral” thing, since she’s obviously not a prude, but a business thing. Makes sense to me. :shrug:

            • HD says:

              I see what you are saying in the context of now. I guess when I heard her say it it seemed like it was something she would never do period.

              But I get that because I did some REALLY DUMB things when I was young that I wouldn’t dream of doing now! Did I say dumb? I mean dumb on the level of castastrophic dumb! LMAO!

            • Exactly and that movie was what 15 yrs ago?People do change and grow in their views over 15 yrs.
              Not 15 seconds like KKB though.

          • Smompy says:

            In what way was she not keeping it real? She was working as a spokesperson for Pepperidge Farm at the time she was asked whether she’d appear in Playboy (or whatever), and she said that was probably not the image Pepperidge Farm would want to see her portray, and I’m sure that was an accurate statement. Now, if she had stated she would never appear nude in a magazine because only DIRTY WHORES would do that kind of thing, then I’d say she wasn’t keeping it real, but she didn’t say anything like that. She simply pointed out that her employer probably wouldn’t like it.

            And I agree with cantstandthetoxicity. B did appear topless in a low budget slasher movie, but porn??? C’mon. that was not porn! A little R-rated sexploitation ala in Porky’s revenge or some early Roger Corman movie, maybe, but it was far from being porn…it wasn’t even racy enough to be considred “softcore” porn.

            • HD says:

              Did you read my reply to Sompy to Need A Hobby. If not, please go back and read. Thank you.

              Also I didn’t mention anything about porn so I assume the rest of your statement is not directed towards me.

              • HD says:

                I meant @ Sompy not “to” Sompy.

              • Smompy says:

                Thank you, HD. Yes, I did read your reply to the other poster. Unfortunately neither that other post nor your reply to it was visible to me until after I posted my own little two cents worth. When I first read your post (which prompted me to piost something) there were a total of 67 comments showing, but after I hit the submit button
                on my own comment, there were suddenly 168 comments showing. This is one of the reasons I rarely post here any more. I literally can’t keep up!

                Anyway, thank you for the reply…had I seen it earlier, I
                doubt I would have posted a comment on the subject at all. And you are correct in thinking the rest of my comment (regarding Bethenny’s supposed “porn” movie) was not directed at you. A few other posters had made the claim that she did porn, and I was responding to that claim in my last paragaph. Since it was all dealing with stuff posted in the same small part of the thread, I figured people would get what I alluding to. Sorry if I was unclear about that or if you felt I was putting words in your motuth or anything like that. I’ll use names the next time I reply to a specific idea: or poster)

    • icantstandthetoxicity says:

      Bethenny’s movie was not porn. Was it Rated X? It was a BAD rated R movie with nudity but it was not porn.

      • OneMoreinBoston says:

        sorry- sexual content, girl on girl action, nudity- I call it soft core porn. R rated perhaps but porn, nonetheless

    Its is said Kim’s mother let the tape out knowing Paris’s tape made her famous.

    Don’t hate me cuz I keep the link

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      how sad is it to have a mother who would do that?

      • truelifediva says:

        The same one who later badgered her daughter into posing nude for Playboy and then took part in same photo shoot. Mom was “spread eagle” wearing nothing but an American flag and stilletos.

  34. Wall St Lady says:

    There r no sound internet laws.
    U need to b careful !

    A friend of mine’s son posted his
    X girl friend’s under ware, she left at his house, on his facebook page.
    The girl found an aggressive idoit DA in NC who went after the kid for stalking.
    The kid’s STUPID lawyer did a plea bargain for 2 years probation & convinced the parents it was best vs a trial. 6mo. later the girl claimed the kid broke probation by being on the same block downtown as she worked (she had a picture but it was of 30 people). She doesn’t show up for court for this accusation.
    Now $1800 in legal fees later the kid fails a drug test for pot from his probation officer& goes to jail for 10 days.All along he was subjected to surprise parole officer directed police searched for drugs & weapons. Officers took all household knives some sharp tools & his Bow & arrow (family had already put the sport guns at the parents home)

    My point tangling w/the law can have very UNCERTAIN outcomes (unless u r a “Star”).
    Otherwise
    Just say yes Sir !
    Do b an internet test case. U could get an ambitious DA & a stupid lawyer !

    • Waxdiva says:

      “There are no sound internet laws.” Exactly. However, what you described v blogs is not comparable. Too bad your friend got the worst combination of ambitious DA and stupid lawyer. I truly don’t think anyone here has to worry about becoming an internet test case.

  35. Wall St Lady says:

    Don’t B an internet test case

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Do you think the Rainbow/Jersey multi name troll incident is/was worthy of any legal actions? I ask because it took me forever to figure out the whole troll thing… And I really liked the post response *__* alot yesterday so that is what I will do in the future.
      You were lucky not to be here in Otay’s hay days cause I always felt she was way out of bounds heading for a legal spanking.

      • justanothermary says:

        Whether we think it’s worthy of legal action or not, some upstart attorney who wants to make a name for him/herself could cause a scene. It would be a high profile case and command a lot of attention. It wouldn’t matter how much cash the Manzo’s have, the attorney could do it simply for the press.

      • nathania says:

        I think that the person that posts the questionable content is held liable, not the person who runs the blog. If they receive a notice from an attorney to delete something most of the time they do from what I have seen on political sites.

  36. TLM says:

    This comment may seem out of left field, but I was going through old bookmarks and I see that one of them is the webpage of Alma Daniel, the officiant for Bethenny and Jason’s wedding. I never said anything at the time, I don’t think, but was anyone else mystified as to why Bethenny chose such an oblivious dingbat for her officiant? Was she looking for someone to play “straight man” to her comic stylings? Ms. Daniel was like Aunt Clara on Bewitched, constantly bumbling and oblivious to what was going on. The woman gave kind of a blank look as B was crying her eyes out, and was just going to keep asking questions I guess, even if B had been writhing on the floor. Daniel never changed her expression once. They had to ask her, can we have a minute? Then, at the ceremony, she was deadpan, “you can’t kiss her yet,” and it seemed like everyone was in on the joke but her. There are so many people you can find to officiate, I just had no idea why they would pick this woman.

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      I kinda liked her!
      I thought she was sort of sweet, but a little out of it. I thought she played a much needed “soft” role for Bethanny.

  37. TLM says:

    B was so specific about everything she wanted, I was amazed she would take a chance with someone who seemed like they weren’t really on the ball. I would be afraid this woman would get lost trying to find The Four Seasons, and then have to be physically pointed toward the couple, otherwise she would have been staring at the ceiling or something.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      IIRC Bethenny didn’t do this part of the wedding planning – Jason took care of the license and the officiant. Bethenny got something from the interview with her because she cried and it was the the beginning of her thinking that where she had no family Jason’s family would soon be her family.

  38. Just when things were looking too serious, this little gem popped up on Twitter!

    @kikilet At victoria’s secret. The “pout”/ push up bras are amazing.

    Thanks Kelly! I am going shopping tonight. Just what my tired old t!ts need!

    • Adgirl says:

      But KKB – does the “pout” bra push randomly widely placed implants together?

      • Don’t ask her, she will show us!

      • truelifediva says:

        How dare you ask her a question about her breasts! That’s so rude 😉 Just because someone poses nude in Playboy does not mean their wonky boobs are fair game for snark. Sheesh, I wish she would just wear pullover sweaters and flannel pajama bottoms. Her body is gross and any discussion involving her giving advice on the topic makes me want to hurl.

    • truelifediva says:

      Kelley’s boobs want a divorce from each other!
      Kelley’s boobs are disgruntled and no longer want to appear in the same outfit together!
      Kelley’s boobs told her, “You’re up here and I’m down down there.’
      😀

  39. Wall St Lady says:

    I certainly didn’t see anything to sue about.
    But one person’s snicker can b another’s fury.
    U can sue & it can b thrown out. But 2 lawyers must still file & defend & it is expensive. Unless like the panties suit I mentioned the DA takes the case & prosecutes.

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      I like Real HouseWife’s theory:

      @rainbow threw a bunch of shit against the wall to see what would stick, and see if she could trick Lynn into buying into the nonsense and giving her some type of forum like a guest blog. Which would make Lynn liable.

      So Lynn was being setup.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Rainbows may have been throwing well known rumors against the wall but no way was it a set up for Lynn….besides Lynn would never run with a mess like that and she checks her sources. These idiots couldn’t think their way out of a paper bag much less pull something like that off.
        IMO -Rainbow was pissed at the trolls and the trolls came charging after her and we were treated to what is likely the way those folks roll.

        • quincyil says:

          If we had fallen for it or if Lynn had fallen for it…there could have been a problem. We aren’t that stupid thank goodness.

    • Adgirl says:

      Veeerrrry expensive. We were sued twice by Salahi style grifters as a shakedown (they and atty thought we’d pay them to go away). They got nothing but it still cost us literally hundreds of thousand of dollars in atty fees. We didn’t even get as far as depos.

      Run away from crazy people.

      • I was not trying to cause a problem for Lynn at all. I have the utmost respect for her and her blog. That was why I was concerned that someone like Rainbow would show up out of the blue, throw wild-ass crazy accusations around, then leave a mess for Lynn to clean up.

        The NJ housewives have had this evil group of “trolls” following them from blog to blog since the beginning, and they themselves have taken reality tv to a new low with their vulgarity and criminality.

        **All it takes is a grudge and a checkbook to stir up trouble.***

  40. Following-up on the topic posted above, how the whole “rainbow” thing could get Lynn, or this blog in trouble, this reminds me of what was done to shut-down the original TWOP RHWONY board! I have it pasted somewhere, but the gist of it is that it works like this, A.Someone doesn’t like a particular website & wants to get it shut-down. B. That someone posts outlandish/crazy/litigious crap on said site. C. That same someone raises a complaint with the hosting company, lawyers…..
    *********************
    someone made a great call when they said why did “Rainbow” come back here and confirm that her family had been contacted? Part of the troll-joke? OR, would someone really be THAT dumb? By announcing here that their family was contacted, (something that we, and the “contactee”, wouldn’t know), they exposed/confirmed their identity the “contactee”.
    ************************
    It is a nasty way to try & control information. Many boards & forums that I have seen that have managed to survive this kind of attack, very simply place a disclaimer on their site. Its up to Lynn at this point as far as I know if she wants to do any editing, but allowing the whole thing to play out actually gave us all a chance to realize that whoever it was definitely had some personal motive or agenda. We’re grown-ups & we can decide what we want to believe or not, although there are some particular nasty allegations about minors being tossed-about, that personally, I think should be blacked-out, or deleted. Although, once again, the fact that youngsters who are put into the public-arena by their parents are unfortunately subject to being discussed by the public.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      We don’t know who these people are, their ages, their connection to the “Manzo Family & Friends” or their motivation for playing their game on this site. We were innocent bystanders to the LOUD ONES and IMO they were really after Rainbow not us. It was like hearing the fire sirens getting closer and closer and passing us on the way to the call…we were not attacked for anything we said but for simply being here. Guessing it was a weird weekend in Franklin Lakes and we got the blow back from it.
      And less you forget….I still hate Jille Foghorned Zarik (legally can’t challenged moniker…winky winky)!

      • quincyil says:

        Only because we didn’t fall for the stories. If there was a way for Dina and Teresa gag us with one of Jill Zarin’s Team tee shirts, I’m pretty sure they’d do it.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          oh I know we could take them! we may not yell the loudest, be from Patersen or jump around like zoo animals but we are smart enough to know how to take them down!

  41. Amber...Real Wife says:

    I was here when RainbowGold came on in and responded to her early posts. I then left and missed the throwdown with the yelling Jersey crew. Reading it this morning was nuts as everytime you guys responded or thought it was over the troll renamed him/herself 5 times and kept on calling Rainbow and later all others JUMBLA rejects? Does anyone even know what a JUMBLA is?

  43. Adgirl says:

    JUMBLA?

    United
    Major

    Loudmouth
    Association?

    • justanothermary says:

      Thank you adgirl. I’ve been trying to figure out JUMBLA all day ! lol – No matter what anyone else comes up with, JUMBLA will always mean Jersey United Major Bitch Loudmouth Association to me.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      it is a made up word that is likely used by the trolls in their unique language dialect based loosely on the English language – it seems to be an adjective but it could be a noun or verb. if Rainbow returns we should ask her.

      • Sha2000 says:

        Anyone have a texting teen they could ask? I bet they know what that stands for.

        • justanothermary says:

          On a whim I twittered to Lauren and Chris Manzo last night about the JUMBLA thing. Lauren answered me almost immediately and said she had no clue.

        • American Idiot says:

          Just asked my daughter, a junior at NYU. She has no idea.

          I wonder if it is something specific to the school these girls go/went to. (if the posters were teens).

          When my son was in middle school, there was a group of girls who called themselves the “fabulous 14”.

    If she returns tonight I say we try giving her the cold shoulder, not as much fun though.

      There is no B in the word. They were using the word or initials JUMLA . I thought that was right but I went back and checked on the previous blog.

    If I had a charity so well known like Dina’s is I would be on the defense if someone accused of me things like “taking the $$ 4 my self or explain the reason y only 51% only goes to the hospital. I would be so offended I would be like “No u dont understand this happened etc, Not call ppl tweet holes or call the “twitter police” for calling a number that was listed as the charity number.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Don’t you think a mature, sincere, professional fundraiser just throw open the books, let everyone see the charity is on the up and up and the donations are indeed going to the intended recipient? To do anything else would spell doom to the project….. If someone called me a tweethole – my donations would be going elsewhere!

    Your guest blogger mis construde Andy Mazel of the week prize to the Bishop,when he awarded to him, Andy was basically being (sarky),because Eddie Long has a history of stance against homosexuals, he preach against them,and hold marches against gay,so Andy was basically throwing puns at the Bishop,so nothing to be ”disgusted” about The Bishop have been doing this for years I know someone personally who was taken under his wings,when she rated him out, they looked down on her,and said she was a liar ect because she had already had a horrid pass of running away from home, doing drugs ect.. Back then we were teens,shes all grown up now,and have been cast out of society ,because of individuals like the bishop, I guess fleas are not lobsters indeed! I fancy your blog Lynn :p”

    Just an FYI, doesn’t seem like a troll or baiter, she had good points. Her very next post was the one listing some of the tidbits she claims to know, e.g. Albert is bi, Joe’s mistress, Ashley a hard partier, etc. And isn’t “fancy” a word used by Brits?? It’s certainly not a word used by New Yawkers, LOL. I do wonder where she is today, it’s not like she was pushed off the board, she definitely was met with some skepticism but she was treated pretty respectfully as compared to the all caps visitors.

    • Sha2000 says:

      New Yorkers use fancy too like; “look at miss fancy pants” not “fancy a cup of tea?” That lol would be British.

    • So I guess she posted this comment before she started drinking?

    • nathania says:

      I saw that, and that was the first mention of the Andy Cohen/Eddie Long thing being misconstrued. Everything I have read elsewhere supports this version. I really couldn’t make sense of the rest of it.

      What would really be ridiculous and embarassing is if we found out that this poster and the MPD troll are both about 14.

    • Diana says:

      Shite is also a UK word for Shit.

  48. Adgirl says:

    From Lynn’s blog:
    “Word is Mrs. Hartwell refused to amp up her storyline for Bravo,”

    How could she amp up her storyline anyway. Quite boring. Other than her comments about Shitree’s fashion show (the one that actually had fashions).

  49. WindyCityWondering says:

    So I am now getting into the RHOA mind set and have many questions?
    Will they bring the drama right out of the gate?
    Will they hold back like they did at the reunion because they were just not getting enough money for their performances?
    Will the two new divas shake up the pecking order?
    Will NeNe finally meet someone crazier than herself?
    I confess I haven’t followed their off screen/off season escapades – what have the chicklets from Atlanta been up too????

    • Sha2000 says:

      I never really watched but now that I found you guys I will!

    • justanothermary says:

      Just my opinion, but I think Bravo usually comes out of the gate with drama then holds the rest until the end so all the in-between episodes are fairly boring. I would bet there something was done about the holding back thing and I’m sure it was addressed before new contracts were signed. Of COURSE the new divas will shake up the pecking order and there is no one crazier than NeNe, if there were we would have seen them last season!

      • Sha2000 says:

        Really? I haven’t seen the worst of the HW’s yet? Lol, can’t wait!

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        I’d pay to see NeNe vs Teresa throwdown…..

        • emily says:

          Someone should tweet Teresa and see if she’d get in a ring with NeNe for $100 grand or if that’s just the price for Danielle. Seems like both T and Nene could use the dinero…

    • Ellabean says:

      Hi WSL ~ This will help you get all caught up and primed for the Atlanta wives:
      Go to Lynn’s blog just from last week, September 29th, titled: “Atlanta Preview”. Her friend, HD, wrote an excellent primer for the cast and what they are all up to.
      (see upper right of this page & click on “Recent Posts”)

  50. Wall St Lady says:

    House Wife Hater mentioned

    The shut-down of the original TWOP RHWONY board!

    I don’t understand how a blog can b shut down.What happened ?

    I want to STOP any mention that Lynn has any liability

    Anything a legit Lynnfamm or a
    Troll posts is not Lyn’s responsibility.
    She isn’t responsible to even delete.

    Some one correct me if I am wrong but unless we r being pornographic I think anything goes as long as we know its in fun.

    • justanothermary says:

      I’m saying you’re wrong, but the laws still have not completely caught up the internet issues and, therefore, is evolving all the time. I don’t think anything any of us or Lynn did was illegal, but I can believe that some attorney looking to make him/herself a name would take this on simply for the publicity.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Lynn’s blog with Lynn’s rules. She has from time to time had to remove posts and posters and has always told us why. If anyone has a problem they contact her directly. We all are here because we feel comfortable, we can agree to disagree and have common interest in many of the topics.

    • Adgirl says:

      TWOP (same company that owns Bravo) says posters are to comment on the show only. The moderator-police-partypooper Strega claimed the NY posts were “off topic” around the time of Amazongate and suddenly shut down the NY pages. Most of the allegedly off topic comments were about Jill’s despicable behavior and (to me) were discussing matters seen on the show.
      That was (sort of) how Lynn’s I Hate Jill Zarin board was born.

      • lillybee says:

        I remember that. In my opinion, Jill threatened a lawsuit so TWOP complied and shut the board down.

        • American Idiot says:

          Didn’t Lauri and George from OC also threaten to sue if Bravo didn’t take a MB down. I remember reading that somwhere.

        • Need a Hobby says:

          Eh, Bravo’s own RHONY messageboard members talked about whatever they wanted, including Amazongate, without any interruption whatsoever.

          I think bd closure had more to do with TWOP’s own famously strict and bizarre moderation practices (and bd shut downs) rather than any fear of litigation. If the latter were true, Bravo’s own site (bravotv.com) would also have restricted speech and it didn’t.

    • AZ Girl says:

      TVWOP is also run by Bravo. Strega the moderator has rules posted that the posts have to be about the show and nothing else. When “Amazongate” broke everyone on TVWOP were posting about it. It was closed soon after and never reopened.

    let me try this again:

    Do you all think maybe the Sybil troll with 5 personalities meant “jumby”?

  53. justanothermary says:

    This is totally off topic but I’ve been wonder since last year if the vocal/music teacher for Kim Z’s kids has any claim to Tardy for the Party (not that I’d admit it if I did). IIRC the song was originally on a tape from the teacher given to Kim to play for Dallas. Even though the new song has no resemblance to the one provided by the teacher, it still seems there may be some issues there.

    • American Idiot says:

      He wrote the lyrics, right. So maybe he got something for that.

    • emily says:

      I remember that song, it was something about a tightrope, not related to tardy for the party. Maybe the writer wanted too many royalties so Kim picked a different song.

      • justanothermary says:

        No – Tightrope was a song that Dallas had pitched to K. There was a song on a tape that K liked by the music teacher but NeNe didn’t like it. They continued to listen to the tape and it was NeNe who picked out TFTP and like it.

    Hank Williams Singer Lyrics

    Jambalaya Song Lyrics

    Goodbye, Joe, me gotta go, me oh my oh.
    Me gotta go, pole the pirogue down the bayou.
    My Yvonne, the sweetest one, me oh my oh.
    Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou.

    Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet gumbo
    ’cause tonight I’m gonna see my ma cher amio.
    Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gayo,
    son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou.

    Thibodaux, Fontaineaux, the place is buzzin’,
    kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen.
    Dress in style and go hog wild, me oh my oh.
    Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou.

    Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet gumbo
    ’cause tonight I’m gonna see my ma cher amio.
    Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gayo,
    son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou.

    Settle down far from town, get me a pirogue
    and I’ll catch all the fish in the bayou.
    Swap my mon to buy Yvonne what she need-o.
    Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou.

    Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and fillet gumbo
    ’cause tonight I’m gonna see my ma cher amio.
    Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gayo,
    son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou.

      Shoot and I am making Italian tonight and now I can’t get Cajun out of my mind!!!!
      Jumbla isn’t in the urban dictionary nor did either of my teens know what it meant. Going with a made up word that only they who use it know it’s meaning! Really intelligent to slam people with a word they don’t know! Duh!

    • golfnut says:

      WSL
      My Mom loves that song. When nappster was just starting and sharing music was thought of just like sharing a record with your friend, my Mom collected Jambalaya in every language she could get her hands on. I think the funniest version was in Chinese, she has a CD that is back to back Jambalaya in all kinds of languages and you would think it would get tiresome to listen to it, but it just gets so silly you can’t get the smile off your face.
      BTW thanks for watching RHOA so I don’t have too. Love you guys!

  58. Over the rainbow says:

    Hi everyone,

    My first post was about the Bishop scandal. I met a teenager a while back on 42 and 8th in Manhatthan asking for money. She started telling me about her past that she was abuse by her step father,and the Bishop .She tried telling her counselors and others about the Bishop.

    She went telling me that society,and everyone who was close to her looked down on her because, she spoke up about the Bishop. At the time I had no idea who Bishop long was, when the teen told me her story. I doubted her in mind by saying. Oh she’s just another bum in Manhatthan.

    When the scandal broke about the same Bishop that teenager told me about. My mind immediately went back to her. It made me think that sometimes when others tell their life story. It can indeed be a cry for help. And where location I met that teen it’s at the Port Authority station and is very much a drug and prostitute haven for those teens once they exit those Greyhound service system.

    I wanted to clear that up for some of the posters who were confused about my posting of the Bishop. I saw some of you wrote that I knew her when we were teenagers. After writing that on Saturday I said excuse my typos,because I was typing from my iPhone

    It does have spell check ….everytime I am typing from it … It constantly suggest words for me to select and it gets very annoying.

    My original name shited over the rainbow ….I was throwing out puns at a certain housewife and her “fairy tale” I fake on tv that I was servingy guest expensive wine and, Iborrowed the money from the bank and , now I can’t pay them back wedding.

    Just needed to answer your questions as to why I choose that name.

    To the poster who stated that Wall Street “shot me down” because I was pretending to be ” lady manor” …. I can assure you when I woke up this morning and, looked in the mirror, they were no bullet wounds :p

    The other posters that ask if I am naive? It depens on how irritated and annoyed I am with others.

    I’m I 17? If I can only go back to those years 🙂

    I said in one of my postings yesterday… My intentions were not and , aren’t to disrupt Lynn’s blog. I felt I needed to put certain things, and certain people on blast. I intentionally jumble my words together (mocking the way they write and talk) once posting about certain individuals and, their “trapped behind their mirror lives”

    To the poster who responded to my question about where they shop in Commack. when I’m in St.James and E.Northport there’s a pizza place next to the IGA that makes freshly made pizza on Suffolk and, Nassau county combined. It’s to die for literally 🙂

    No I’m not British I learn a lot of British dialect from my British friends. When I learn new lingo from them I use it 🙂

    As far as “Jumla” goes. I came up with two theory.

    Jersey unstable mental Franklin Lakes Assholes, or Jersey unstable look at me assholes. Either way I’m liking the word “Jumla”

    I tried watching the Atlanta housewives their first season, but got lost with what was going on and, I didn’t like the way the loud mouth lady was constantly screaming at the white one but I’ll try watching it again.

        Between you and I, there are IGA supermarkets in both St. James and East Northport, each with pizzerias next to them. Which did you mean, I’ve been to the one in E. Northport and had their pizza. Brick oven, I believe. Thanks for the recommendations!

            Nope, the word had no “B”, just “jumla” I double checked. A mystery word for sure.

    The word in question is “jumla”…I went back and looked, it was typed at least twice and also ued in the phrase “jumla rejects”….

    Wall Street lady…I did not saw anything about Jumla last night.

    Someone on this thread wrote up above they would ask me the meaning of the word. I’ve never heard or saw that word untill today. To the posters asking I have no idea what Jumla or Jumbla means. Wish I did but, I don’t 🙂

    I gave my theroy of what I thought it meant and, I directed my sarcastic theroy to the posters who referred to me by that name.

    Do I know Claudine and , Caroline yes but not in a buddy buddy way.
    Do I know who reacted to me negatively? Not sure?

          When it stops working they’ll try something else.

          I actually think Theresa is far, far worse than Jill Zarin. Jill’s bitchy and mean, but she doesn’t have tenants whose children shiver at night because she doesn’t pay their heating bill.

          No one that I am aware of has been injured due to lack of maintenance in her properties, like the poor lady that fell down the rickety stairs at Joe’s apartment building.

          Jill doesn’t stiff working men and women who are just trying to make a living. Jill doesn’t charge things she can’t afford and then expect to be bailed out by the taxpayers of her state.

          Jill’s just unpleasant, Theresa is dangerous.

            • The lady is in a wheelchair now.She won a sizable settlement but ofcourse was never paid.Joe thought so little of the action he didn’t even show up in court.
              I have spoken with her and she fell because the stairway is unlit and filled with trash and often wet.When Joe was ordered to bring the building up to code all he did was fix the steps and the light fixture in the entry.The first floor is the only one with lights in the halls.
              Joe can never own another Sec8 housing unit.
              The tenents were court ordered to pay a collection agency their rents but Joe still harrasses and threatens them for not paying him.
              I was also told he would threaten to have Teresa beat them bragging about how tough she is.

                This is one more reason why they shouted Danielle down at the reunion, to keep her shut up about stuff like this that she probably knows and would have loved to have talked about. Sorry to keep harping on this, but this is crap…Jacqueline and Caroline, this is what you supported by choosing to put the focus on someone’s past from that long ago while these slimeballs get by without a hitch. Does Andy Cohen REALLY think that someone who screams in people’s faces, flips tables and assaults him personally is really just a good, misunderstood person? Is he really stupid enough to believe that this is just a glitch of an otherwise normal person’s personality? Oh wait, who cares, because DANIELLE STAUB HAD SEX! Let’s burn her at the stake, forget the mafia and the slum lords and the physical assaults and all that stuff that really affects other human beings in serious, relevant ways…it SO has become Jerry Springer, like other people here have said, beat the whore, forget about the actual real criminals because they didn’t get laid. Or something. Cohen needs to get his head examined. He’s becoming, along with his show, and embarrassment to himself and his network

            • OneMoreinBoston says:

              That’s one claim that has been disputed. Tenant Ruby Persha sued Joe after falling down stairs that she said had been left in disrepair; she won a $129,826 settlement by default when Joe didn’t show up to court. The balance remained unpaid at the time of the bankruptcy filing. “I haven’t seen a cent,” she says, adding that Joe often let the city cut off water and even heating oil at times for lack of payment. “He did everyone here extremely dirty.”

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Speculating but seriously thinking that due to all the hidden assets, lying etc on their part – the case is being reevaluated because of new information. No way did they ever qualify for Chap 7 and no way could they have amassed that amount of debt on the stated income! I am waiting too and I really believe Karma will get them and get them in a fabulous fashion! So they won the battle to keep their tacky crapola but I doubt they will win the Chap. 7 war.

      • Need a Hobby says:

        Such a thing (denial of bankruptcy protection) would be for the judge to declare, not the trustee. The trustee is appointed by the court to serve a function for the court; he does not supercede the authority of the court/judge.

    • nathania says:

      I don’t understand that article, it makes out like money is going back to the family. I thought the auction was going to be held to raise money to pay the creditors since the items are part of a bankruptcy. I know the lawyer is lying through his crooked teeth, it’s what he’s paid to do…but People has a bit of a reputation online for being a source that is somewhat trustworthy compared to most other online sources. There are some stories I have followed that have been given credence or shot down just based on what People has posted online. I have noticed that when it comes to the Giudices they seem a bit gullible or one-sided…it’s strange.

      • Adgirl says:

        Seriously. Earlier I read the auction was cancelled because the lawyers argued they wouldn’t get enough money AND the Juicy’s would get $50K from it <— how??

I feel this was an ignorant attack BY someone who has race issues who has not a clue and who won’t bother to look it over and carries deep seated anomosity towards people..”Lincoln was a lib dem”– that has to be the most ignorant statement I have ever heard….READ A BOOK BYE

      Thats not what was said it is out of context & its NOT ADGirl,

      I said it & I stand by it BUT I suggest you go back reread because you have it out of context. Also, WHAT RACISTS?????? We were originally talking about someone else’s post from the previous blog…you are getting huffy about nothing & you shouldn’t be angry. You were talking about Republicans & what they have supposedly did for civil rights in this nation & I replied respectfully so saying if you have to go that far back to give credit, then give it to the dems too (we fought AGAINST slavery btw). Please re-read because you are mixed up & you owe AdGirl & myself an apology.

        “Personally I think almost all social issues do not have place in Washington.”

        And I feel the same about religion & the ambiguous “family values” making its way to DC. I’ll decide my personal compass no need to have it dictated to me by a politician who 99% of the time has some questionable ethics issue, that’s “big government” to me.

        Anniieee , if you are going to go that far back, you’ve got to give us credit then for fighting to end slavery. Lincoln may have been a Republican but he was clearly a Liberal Dem in his consciousness.”

        My opinion which should be respected as I did yours even though I disagreed. I must ask what have Republicans done to repair race relations recently? To promote civil rights???? Do they not do more damage when the leaders in their party question the presidents birth & the lie & publicly call him a Kenyan & a Muslim? It’s BS period & it’s high time they are called out on it. Anniee, If you have to go back to the 1800’s to give your party credit for civil rights, they are doing something wrong.

        • anniieee says:

          You need to read…read …. read…. and that is all I am going to say Start with the Constitution.. and then go back thru history… I am joining those that have left. I don’t have to go back to 1864..you are the one that called out Lincoln…learn your history… or keep taking “that sense of entitlement”. We are all Americans..black, white, red and yellow etc. and it’s time we decided that COLOR AND PARTY do not matter. If you don’t learn history..we are doomed to repeat it..and we are so repeating it. I am so sorry my grandchildren are going to pay for this and your “sense of entitlement” and all these social programs. But please…read history…don’t spout stuff you are clueless about..because you are clueless. I have been respectful to everyone since I have joined this blog–to include Otay. But– I cannot tolerate racism and ignorance…from any race. You know nothing about me..nothing about what I do or what I try to accomplish..and vice/versa. To make such a statement and then back it up with…, “If you have to go back to the 1800′s to give your party credit for civil rights, they are doing something wrong.” just shows me your lack of understanding and your lack of knowledge about what has happened in our world up to this point.
          It proves my thoughts that you are not aware of what is happening around you and what has gone on before. I am sure you vote “the Party” because they are going to “take care of you.” so sad.

                I think the RHODC started the ball rolling with a political and racial climate to our discussions.

                I think we all have our own triggers, I know I can be a bit sensitive to people using the word ‘retarded’ in a non-clinical sense. But at the same time I can appreciate when someone is using it, they probably are not seeking out to offend me.

              you; who thinks the US Constitution/Bill of Rights prohibits anyone from disagreeing with you or politely asking you to refrain from writing things that others may find offensive (such as sweeping statements re: politics, race, religion), and denying that just such a pact exists here on this blog…

              you, who feels free to criticize the writing or comprehension skills of others yet persistently uses the incorrect term “should OF” instead of “should HAVE” for which “should’ve” is the contraction…

                Both the Republican and Democrat parties have strayed so far from their roots that whatever they did during the civil war is irrelevant. Both parties are now in the business of staying in power, period. Neither party tells the truth or lives up to it’s promises.

                As for the Presidents birth certificate there is no guessing involved by us or a monkey’s uncle. Barack Hussein Obama II was born in Hawaii, a copy of his birth certificate was made available and verified authentic.
                The original document is on file at the Health Dept. This has been confirmed by both Hawaiian Health Department Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino and Alvin Onaka, who is the registrar of vital statistics who both reviewed the original document. The proof has been offered again and again. I have no problem with anyone disagreeing with this or any president but do it based on real issues not baseless accusations against his right to be president.

      In the south, which you are supposedly from (right?) it is very humid. African American hair tends to frizz in humid weather so as a result, all the hottest new short cuts come from the south. When I was a hairdresser, all the hairstyle books had sections. A long section, medium length section, updo’s, etc. Every short style was from a southern salon or southern stylist. Two years ago the “Fauxhawk” was all the rage. What you see in Kandi and NeNe are variations of that theme. 😉

    What is going on with Ramona? For some time I’ve wondered if she is having a problem with menopause and hyperthyroidism. The hyperhydrosis with botox underarm injection treatment and the very wide open eyes. At the fashion show the bug eyes? She seems almost hyper, especially when she jumps up speaking emotionally and very fast (as during the reunion when she jumped up and was pointing her finger at Jill, etc). I’ve actually wanted to tell her to be checked by her doctor for possible problem with hormones.

      I know someone who is the same way. She’s not on adderall but has a very high metabolism and cannot sit still. She’s hyperkinetic. Her child is the same way.

She can go from happy to spiteful in two seconds flat.

    Which Atlanta gal would u want to know ?
    From a business perspective I would say the lawyer ; for fun I like Kim. I admire the way she forgives NeNe & moves on. I like the way she loves to laugh. I don’t understand why Andy picked on her at the reunion. But even that she took in stride like a “professional”.

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      I liked NeNe a little more tonight. She seemed more human. She admitted she has anger problems.

      I’m not loving the lawyer, seems VERY full of herself, and judgemental of others.

      Kandi is still my rave fave. And of course Kim is my secret alter ego.

      Although I would teach my alter ego’s child to chew with her mouth closed, not the way to impress a Frenchman. She’s going to have her hands full with this girl.

      Sheree didn’t irritate me as much as usual. Could it be that NJ and DC has worn me down and that these ladies seem like saints in comparison?

      • Diana says:

        I noticed that Sheree doesn’t look as tranny-like as she has in past seasons. She looks softer. And yeah, I think after NJ, the trash bar has been set higher, so now these women seem like utter lambs in comparison (well…). Then again it’s the first episode, so hopefully (I love good trash) it will get better (read: trashier).

    • cusi77 says:

      I think Candi is more real… the lawyer seems nice as well.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I like Kandi’s creativity and energy.

      • quincyil says:

        I would love to be friends with Kandi. I don’t know what is going on with the money issue. There were so many accusations.
        I thought the lawyer’s advice about not suing was good.

  85. boston02127 says:

    @HD–re: Sara Baartman. I read about her life, I never knew about her story. What a very sad life for her and a sad death. Shocking & sad.

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      Horrible. The Globe had an article about her, as she was put on display at Harvard Medical School in the victorian times.

      • boston02127 says:

        @OneMoreinBoston — I found a book about her. I don’t know if I can read it thou, things like that “stick with me” and really bother me.
        Books: Sara Baartman and the Hottentot Venus

  86. TEB says:

    There is something so hysterical to me: Picturing WSL (now that I have seen her photo) and all her glam talking trash with the ‘yo’ and slang. Cracks me up.

  87. TEB says:

    Goodnight Moon, Goodnight Socks, Goodnight TEB…… Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

  88. truelifediva says:

    Full t.v. schedule tonight:

    Be back tomorrow morning to discuss/debate any and all of the above. Don’t get started witthout me. Remember I’m on the West coast 🙂

  89. boston02127 says:

    Good night everyone.

    You too Dina.

  90. cdnfillie58 says:

    @justanothermary been there done that…u will beat this..hugs!!!

  91. justanothermary says:

    Ok, it’s official, I’m disappointed with the first episode of RHOA. Boring!

    • vilzvet says:

      I’m skipping that series, did not watch it last year, and am waiting for BH which I believe is next week. When the heck is OC starting again? It’s been forever.

  92. jean says:

    Im sorry nene needs a stylist check before letting all those rolls or backfat hanging out in the visit from Kim. SOOO gross.

  93. jean says:

    Dont get me wrong, I got backfat but sure as heck know how to keep that to myself. I loved the season finale last night of the Glades. Love that Jim and also the Medical examiner.

  94. jean says:

    Medical examiner reminds me or ricky ricardo. yes i am 60 years old.

  95. jean says:

    I remember back long years ago when I was watching at 7 or 8 years old, I thought he has gorgeous. I also loved loved loved Liberace. Denied the rumours even back then i didnt care he was handsome as well. When Liberace used to wink, mama and daddy said my sister and I were so smitten we just giggled uncontrollably. Those two men had talent, nothing that any of these hw would know anything about.

    • justanothermary says:

      My grandmother was a pianist and she would get irate everytime she saw Liberace. She instited that his form was horrid and that no real pianist would lift their arms like he does. But she’d tune in every week!

      • tuzentswurth says:

        Liberace certainly was not a classically trained pianist! He was a chord style player with a lot of entertainment flair.

  96. justanothermary says:

    Ok, did anyone else just about wet themselves when Kim said “I hope I’ve instilled the same morals and values into my daughter as my parents instilled in me?”

    • truelifediva says:

      Kim made a similiar comment last year. She said her parents did a pretty good job with her and she hoped to do just as good with her girls… This from a woman that was involved in a sex scandal while still in high school. Yeah, great parents!

    • SavingGrace says:

      I thought the same thing.

  97. jean says:

    I know, I couldnt image how she said that with a straight face.

    • truelifediva says:

      It’s the Botox she’s been getting since the age of 23. Can’t help but have a straight face. Plus, it helps when she tells Big (shorter than her) Poppa “You’re the best!”

  98. LynnNChicago says:

    prettyplusmore @lynnNchicago What the heck is going on with Dina Manzo? Listen to Lynn and Laura tell the story; http://www.winningbeautypageants.com/

    Radio interview with Laura (@Geoaubsmom ) and me. (its a bit long)

    • MickeyMouth says:

      That was long, lol; but interesting. My opinion, Dina needs to learn how to separate her feelings from her position as founder of this charity. She may dislike tweeters (and in her defense some are mean) but tweeting and being on the RHONJ is how she promotes her charity and for that she just has to suck it up and remain professional. It only hurts her charity to become combative when asked questions.

  99. dickens says:

    Anthony Williams (from last season’s Project Runway) just said, ” Come on Atlanta! We cannot afford to speak highly about labels, houses and cars with total disregard to the ENGLISH LANGUAGE. Only in America, we celebrate failed marriages, talent less individuals and such horrible representations of new money.”

  100. Wall St Lady says:

    TEB
    When ever I get a call from some one w/a name I don’t know
    I pick up & kinda yell
    YO
    The person usually stumples
    & says : Is this WSL ?
    Again I say : YO !
    Whatever they say
    I say YO.
    Always they finally hang up in confusion !

    (If its a friend ,I recognize their voice but still yell YO to make us both laugh)

  101. JKW says:

    Good for him ! I liked him on Project Runway. Some of his one liners were great. I truly wonder if these people see the shows and realize how stupid they look.

  102. HD says:

    My goodness. What a long day on this blog. An interesting day of learning…I have had a long day in general soooooo after my last comment I think I need to chill.

    Yo..Yo…(EYE ROLLAGE) I am gonna call it a night.

    Peace and Blessings!

  103. cusi77 says:

    Taking about Botox- I have never done anything like that.
    I am 56 ( this is like the 30Th time I told you, I know>..) I do not wear make up or powder in my face… never in my whole life! In my late 30’s I started having some wrinkles , by that time I went to live to France and found “Sysley” skin cream… MAGIC! there were gone! I am still wearing “Emulsion ecologique” once a day. That’s all! Drinking water and lots of berries, To lower my cholesterol, instead of taking Lipitor who is going to damage my healthy liver,,,, no way!

    Why in Heavens a 23 Year old needs Botox? I am talking about KZ… she lost expression in her face! She used to be beautiful in Season 1… How insecure a person could be to go trough unnecessary surgeries to look “better”? She looks empty! What’s with her daughter eating like a 2 Y.old…?

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      Sysley is a stand out line. I have a friend who is their account manager, what amazing skin she has!

  104. lillybee says:

    I think that there may be a possibility that Dwight is my favorite Atlanta hw.

  105. JKW says:

    Lily…Unless he was lying about the money, I may have to agree. Honestly at one point I went to turn down my TV. It wasn’t the TV it was Nene yelling the whole time she was on camera. That was really getting on my nerves.

  106. lillybee says:

    There is something about NeNe that I don’t like.

  107. JKW says:

    Besides being foul mouthed, screaming and getting in peoples faces ? She sure took down that party pretty damn fast.

  108. Adgirl says:

    Based on prior seasons I don’t find NeNe to be a loyal friend. So beyond the high decibel, dominating behavior she is waaaaay too high maintenance for what she returns in “friendship”.

  109. Adgirl says:

    Why would Gregg need Dwight to “invest” only $500 for a $200 return? Wouldn’t Gregg just invest $1000 and get $400?? (was this investment a horse race?)

    I call BS on Gregg.

    Dwight – what exactly did you spend $30,000 on for Sheman’s show? Got receipts?

    I call BS on Dwight.

    This show is hard to follow because frankly most of it the “events” are absurd.

    Kim. Still wearing the too tights and clutching your Costco size goblet of wine?
    On the previews looks like you got a double dose of botox.

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      I agree about the amounts, but all the work and people Dwight brought in had to be paid. Who paid them? Sheree? BRAVO?

      I think Dwight pulled alot of favors, I mean he had a crew of over 20 working behind him. All of the hair, hairdressers, jewelry, accessories, seamstress, etc. He “volunteered”. Did they?

  110. ches says:

    Looked up Salahi’s book on novel rank.
    http://www.novelrank.com/title/cirque-du-salahi-paperback

    From 9/26, when they first started ranking to today’s date they have only sold 32 paperback books.

    From 9/30 to today, they have only sold 25 on Kindle.
    http://www.novelrank.com/title/cirque-du-salahi-kindle-edition

    They self-published on Createspace, which has an online calculator where you can enter the information on your book. It gives an estimate of how much you will make in royalties, per book and how much Createspace keeps.
    https://www.createspace.com/Products/Book/;jsessionid=4E23CA0319E12C1BDD8772F47EB2E957.cspworker00#content2
    If I am reading this correctly, in the past 9 days Diane Dimond has made approx.
    $130.88 from paperbacks and $60 from Kindle, in royalties. Authors normally receive about 15% of Kindle sales, and approx. $4.09 per book sold, but it’s late and and I suck at math so somebody can check my figures.
    Since the book is self-published my guess is the Salahis would split the profits with the writer. So even if I tripled these figures (which might be generous), for the first few days the book wasn’t tracked by NovelRank, that means the writer’s share would be no more than $600. Give or take. And she may have to split it with the Salahis. That’s not even white limo gas money.
    Bet the author they were interviewing on the show was happy he dodged the “War, Wine and Roses” bullet.
    And in an off note, my dog, who has been laying under my feet the entire time I was looking all this up, needs a good butt washing. He stinks and my eyes are watering. phew!

  111. Diana says:

    I thought it was pathetic when Kim (I’m starting a wig line) Z. got called out for her wig being crooked. Then again, instead of getting Ramonacoaster, she just took the comment and ran with it by jiggling the wig back and forth on her head. I don’t know how to feel about Kim or NeNe, and I wonder if they feel the same about each other, because I see it reflected in their on again, off again friendship.

    WSL_ excuse my poor knowledge of The English language.

    By cusi77 on October 4, 2010 at 11:54 p

    I think u command beautifully ,it is WSL who needs lessons.
    I can’t carry a tune in a bucket.

    Now HD she leads/commands a symphony!

    TEB ,well she sings with the angels !

    “When Ur down & Lonely
    & U need a helping hand…
    & NOTHING is going right…
    U got friend”
    WSL singing loudly off key!

  113. Wall St Lady says:

    Cusi77 & HD
    My Dr BFF’s hub speaks 5 languages. He has a voice like Barry White that melts me. They r friends w/many hi hop singers. When I can’t find Dr. I call
    Mr. Dr. He answers the phone Yo. He also always says :my man & several other phrases I have adopted cuz I feel they work for me in my personal life. I don’t yet use them professionally.
    My bro loves hip hop & I listen w/him in NC.
    Hopefully even at Quincy’s age,
    I continue to evolve.
    I HOPE as I communicate at 100
    I still can have heads turn & smile that I am not an old fuddy duddy. (Some phrases r so old they r funny). I do love to make people smile !

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Agree! I work with college students and like to adopt some of their slang. They think it’s funny that this “old” teacher (57 too) is trying to talk like them. But I get their attention and keep them laughing. To my mind, there is no sense letting ourselves get old and molder. Better to keep up with life and have fun living it.

  114. Wall St Lady says:

    anniieee on October 4, 2010 at 9:06 pm and Sha2000
    I enjoyed & was enlightened by ur interaction. I was impressed by how passionately u expressed ur opinions. U each have strong & interesting personalities. U could b on CNN to debate each other u r so good. I believe if u were in person u would see smiles & sparkles in eyes along w/nervous twists & maybe even a tear.
    Quite frankly I am on the fence.
    I hope u regroup & rest & pat ur self on the back for being good.
    Then come back.
    Don’t punish me by leaving !
    I didn’t do anything but listen.
    I would miss u both.
    Plus some time I may stumble & wouldn’t have u to call me on the rug for I am not an expert on ur passionate platform.

    See u soon , PLEASE !

    • Ellabean says:

      Oh WSL, God Bless the peacemakers of the world…….you !!

    • Sha2000 says:

      WSL, thank you for your kindness but PLEASE don’t say you are on the fence, anniieee said I made a racist comment & I did NOT. My words are in black & white on this thread; if you feel like it please read through them & you can see anniiiee was WAY out of line! No, smiles, sparkles, nervous twists or tears from me; she was WRONG, she is NASTY & she owes me an apology, PERIOD. I have asked her to show me said comment & she refuses because there is NONE. Yes I am taking a break but, I came back a few times today because it is important to set the record straight; I do not take someone calling my comments racist lightly & it is important to me that you all know her accusations are FALSE. Anniiiee is too stubborn to go back & actually read… she was mistaken but I hope you do me that kindness & anyone else reading this. HD & I had a very nice conversation yesterday based on race that was meaningful to us both; she can vouch for me (thank you again HD : ) ) that I am not a person who would make a racist comment & Anniiiee frankly should be ashamed of her self for such bad behavior.

      Wishing you & the rest here well,
      Susan

    Also, for all of you who think that Juicy is the reason for the monetary malfeasance in their household, you are wrong. Teresa is up to her eyeballs along with Juicy. She is not an innocent party. They have mortgaged, re-mortgaged and second-mortgaged everything and her signature is on every paper.

    KL & H interviewed NeNe & Shree on Today.
    KL looked like something smelled bad during the interview.
    It was a 4min interview.
    KL stressed “Bravo is our sister network”.

    • quincyil says:

      I don’t think KL loves her job of late. She should be in the lab is she has the feeling that some things smell bad. I think her job is really easy and her pay fantastic.

    I haven’t been on in a while. Fall is a very busy time for me. A couple of observation and comments.
    HD – Your poem was beautiful and very moving. You have real talent. I also was touched by your post concerning the objectification of African Americans as oversexualized. I had a class once on Race Relations in America. The professor made the same points. There are several ways these myths came about but they all revolved around the idea that African slaves were unable to control themselves sexually because they were more animal than human. Which soothed the consciences of “good Christian” slaveowners. We learned about Sarah Baartman in that class. What a heartbreaking story.Thank you for reminding me of it and calling it to the attention of everyone here.

    TrueLifeDiva – New gravatar. Wow. You are such a beauty!

    Justanothermary – I’m sorry you didn’t get the report you were hoping for. I will be thinking of you.

  122. Wall St Lady says:

    I found it ! I read every word u posted all day. U had a lot to say 🙂 I am contemplating the posts u r referring to but there is too much info.for me to really grasp either of ur point. I even asked WSM & I am not sure if his enlightening words helped
    But I didn’t understand what u said that would b considered racist.

    I am sad that a horrible but important lesson about Sara’s tragic treatment & life was followed by words that hurt & angered u.I felt so grateful to have learned of her story. As I know I will remember it all my life.
    I still hope ur wise & fun input won’t leave.
