Real Housewives of Beverly Hills – Season 1
Episode 3

The Real Housewives series has been my guilty pleasure since
Bravo brought us the original ladies of OC. However, I have to be honest and say the housewives of Beverly Hills seem more like the real deal. By real I mean they actually have money and lots of it. I have a feeling we won’t be reading about anyone filing for bankruptcy after season one concludes.

So far the biggest conflict among the group has been between
dueling sisters Kyle and Kim. I was starting to lose interest but thankfully episode 3 did not disappoint. I loved that the hour started with Camille Grammar playing tennis with her hottie patati “friend” Nick. Camille comes right out of the gate with suggestive comments to Nick saying “You made a promise you were going to play naked in your jock strap”.  She assures us it’s just
friendly flirtation (with a big grin on her face), that Kelsey is best friends with Nick, she’s a tomboy, likes sports, etc, etc. I’m not sure if she was trying to convince us or herself.

You gotta love Adrienne. She cracks me up the mostly because
she has gobs of money and the worst hair extensions out of the entire group. But to be honest I feel bad for Paul. She seems really bored and annoyed by him and his existence. We see Adrienne call Paul on the phone from their home office then yells for him to come see her. She lets him know Jay-z is going to be at the Palms and she wants to take the girls. As usual, Paul wants the guys
to come along so they can spend time together.

You can tell this totally bugs Adrienne, but surprisingly
she goes along without a fight. She lets us know that she has connections because don’t forget “she owns the hotel and can pull some strings to get tickets”. All ends well until Paul walks out of the room and she says “Those shoes make a lot of noise.” I am pretty sure the spark is officially gone when the sound of your husband’s shoes annoy you.

Camille gets a call from Adrienne with an invitation for a
weekend getaway. Camille justifies going because she needs to do something for herself?  “I do everything for everyone else”. I’m confused. What does she do exactly?

Lisa is nice enough to host all the couples (minus Kelsey+
Kim) for lunch at her restaurant Villa Blanca so they can get together before heading off the Vegas. She seems surprised that Russell isn’t as Taylor made him out to be.  During her interview Lisa claims that Taylor had described him as “this big, sexy Texas cowboy  and then in walks Russell” and she proceeds to laugh hysterically. Wow…now that’s just mean.

Kyle informs the group that Kim has a date that night. Lisa and Kyle want to check him out first to be sure he is ok.  Kyle blurts out that Kim doesn’t have the best choice and she should choose. The comments go back and forth and have the potential for a catfight
but Camille chimes in and saves the day. She claims it is so hard for her with Kelsey gone raising two kids and she admires Kim for doing that on her own. Kyle reminds us during her interview that “it must be really hard raising two children with 4 nannies”.  She does have a point.

As Kyle packs for Vegas, she tells her daughter Farrah that
she’s going to see Jay –Z but she only knows that he is married to Beyonce and he’s cool. She MUST bring at least 3 outfits per day plus backups in case it’s cold or hot or if she feels “chubby” because then the outfit will change. You never know!

We see Taylor packing for Russel and she admits that  she started packing for him when they were first dating. Unfortunately he now expects her to pack all the time, which she now finds annoying. He then decides to tell Taylor he is flying to Phoenix for “work” during the day for a few hours on Saturday. Russell then proceeds to
tell her he needs his laptop, sunglasses, workout clothes,  jeans, slacks and some dress shirts as he counts each item off his fingers. Is she his personal assistant or wife?

At the airport everyone piles into a stretch hummer to the
Palms. “What happens at the Palms doesn’t stay at the Palms”. Not sure what that means exactly but who cares because Crazy Camille (or CC as I now fondly call her) says she is not bummed that Kelsey wasn’t there because she did not want to share the attention with him. She was happy to be there without the conversation being “all about my husband”.

Later we see Russell and Taylor chit chatting in their suite.
Taylor confesses she truly wanted to marry someone for love not to get where she wanted to be in life. She knew when she married Russell that he worked nonstop and he was not going to be there holding her hand. But wait, she follows that by saying “she hopes it was the right thing to do”? Do what? Marry him?? Wow, that’s bru-tal.

Dinner that evening was uneventful and bordered on being a big
snooze fest.  CC claims she is not a big drinker and refuses to drink a drop of alcohol. Paul busts out with a story about Adrienne when they were first dating. You think it is going to be sweet but turns weird when he explains that she cooked dinner for him which consisted of a plain piece of chicken from the freezer on a plate. By itself. And her dog was barking in the background. I didn’t get
the point and Adrienne looked confused too.

This awesome story leads to Kyle’s husband explaining how
they met which was really sweet but that just led to Kim being sad that she was alone. Paul wants to hear about how CC and Kelsey met which is odd considering they are supposed to be “friends.” Turns out Kelsey’s agent set them up when CC was living in NYC and he flew there for their first date. The rest is history. Kyle wonders what in the heck Kelsey’s  agent told him about CC that would prompt him to fly across the country for a date; interesting point Kyle.

Wait for this one….Russell and Taylor tell their “how we
met” story and I actually felt bad for them. According to both, Taylor stalked him for months until he finally gave him. When the group gives him a hard time she says “I was happy being single”. What the? Let the eye rolling fiesta begin! You should have seen the look on everyone’s faces. Lisa is appalled that Russell was not down on his hands and knees begging Taylor to marry him. I tend
to agree. Russell doesn’t have much going on in any department except for his bank account.

Dinner is followed by dancing in “da club” where CC pulled
out all the stops dancing like a hoochie mama in front of Paul and Russell.  Paul promptly put money down her shirt because he thinks she’s really sexy and understands why Kelsey married her. After pulling out the money CC yells, “Cheap, only five dollars”! By the look on Adrienne’s face I would say that did not go over very well. I thought they were friends. Hey friends, if you dance like
that in front of my hubby you won’t be my friend any longer.

The following day everyone gathers by the pool and Kyle tells Lisa she hasn’t eaten very much all week so she would feel good for Vegas.  CC tells us once again that she feels more comfortable hanging out with the men more than the women because “they can be very caddy.” She proceeds to order a tequila shot with the boys even though she doesn’t drink. The conversation somehow leads to CC’s implant removal and Taylor was irritated that Russell left
for Phoenix for a “business” trip. I love it. Tequila shots, five inch
stilettos and $5,000 handbags poolside.

Everyone meets up for dinner early so they could make it to the
Jay – Z concert however no one in the entire group knows anything about him or his music. Correction. Taylor knows that song New York? She’s not sure if it’s about New York or called New York.

Dinner is once again uneventful until in walks Nick the hottie patati tennis player looking hotter than hot. Even Paul thinks he’s a good looking guy. Ok, weird. You might think that but keep
it to yourself. CC says Nick is her renta husband and thinks Kelsey sent him to spy on her. OMG! They exchange hugs and kisses then she says “I love Nick”. “I love you too” he says and they hug it out at the table.

And then dessert arrives. Bring on the ding dongs, ho-hos
and cotton candy!! Taylor has a really weird “moment” eating the cotton candy provocatively which does not go unnoticed by the women or husbands. Not sure what the heck she was doing to that pink puff of sugar but it was quite disturbing. Russell, show your wife some attention!

Watching this group hang at a Jay-Z concert was highly
entertaining (NOT) which is why it was probably only a five second clip. No one knew who the heck he was!

The group heads back to Adrienne and Paul’s suite where CC leaves
because she doesn’t know the girls that well and they are bounding and she’s still an outsider. Again I’m confused. If you stuck around longer you might have bonded and I thought she was friends with Adrienne and Paul. I have a feeling she was skipping out for a little rendezvous with Nick.

Russell didn’t seem to be having very much fun and wanted to
leave to get something to eat, even though they had a big din din before the concert. Taylor was pissed but what can she do “he drives the bus in this relationship.” Sorry Russell but you are a big ole bore in my book. I’m shocked at how candid Taylor is about her crappy relationship and she doesn’t hide her annoyance with him whatsoever.
Back in 90210, Kyle and Farrah go shopping for trillion dollar jeans. Kyle proceeds to tell Farrah about a conversation she and CC had in Vegas about CC’s vacation to Hawaii (apparently off camera). Kyle tells Farrah that CC got really defensive when she asked her about the trip and if Kelsey and the kids were going. According to Kyle, CC responded with “Why does this bother you so
much? Why are you interrogating me?” Interesting that she is so defensive.

Of course CC has an entirely different story. She claims that Kyle was interrogating her about the trip and said to her “Why would
anyone be interested in you without Kelsey there”?  I’m no psychiatrist but that question makes no sense. Who would say something like that when discussing a vacation?

It is painfully obvious that Camille is so insecure about her place in life without Kelsey. I think she knew her marriage was over in the
first episode when he drove away to live in NY for a year.

I loved it when Kyle asks Farrah (because she is majoring in
psychology) what should she do and what does this all mean? Farrah’s response is priceless. “ It means nothing changes from high school”. Very smart observation!

Until next time….

Thank you Alison for this great blog.  I will be blogging the Beverly Hills ladies as well and will post tomorrow morning.  My Watch What Happens Live Blog will be posted along with it.


Teresa Giudice should be proud once again she made the cover
of a weekly gossip magazine, unfortunately this one isn’t too flattering.  With the headline reading “Betrayed By Her Man” the story clearly isn’t told from Teresa’s perspective.  The source being a former dancer at a strip club who has the inside story of Juicy Joe’s indiscretions:


Life & Style has apparently become the National Enquirer
of weekly magazines and will print any story told by anyone.

    “You made a promise you were going to play naked in your jock strap”.

    I look forward to similar Mensa gems from Camille:

    “You said you were going to walk to the store in your Mercedes”

    “You promised you would sit for 5 miles with me this morning”


    • Katie says:

      You promised me someone else could birth our kids. Oh wait.

      Maybe the jock strap was supposed to be worn on his head.

      Nice blog sassymom!

  2. DJ Loops Fruit says:

    If your a woman who is dumb enough to marry someone who has been rumoured to be gay for over 30 years then you really do deserve to be divorced


  3. error404 says:

    I often get the impression form these HW shows that they are carefully crafted vehicles for more alimony.

    Taylor interviews that she’s neglected by her hubby while all of the other wives interview that he should be grateful she even gives someone like him the time of day… Hmm, does she already have a divorce lawyer and is collecting evidence for trial?

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      I don’t get everyone’s shock that Taylor’s husband wasn’t the one who pursued her. Although she is slim, I don’t find her all that attractive and more so she looks like she is a high maintenance pain in the ass. She reminds me of the saying “No matter how attractive a woman is, remember that there is some guy out there who is tired of putting up with her shit”.

      Even if she was ‘good looking’ before time and botox betrayed her, good looking girls are a dime a dozen especially to a guy who has some cash.

      • jen says:

        I felt like Taylor maybe pursued him because she knew he had $$$$- that is actually what I took from the scene, so i agree not sure why everyone was shocked……

        • quincyil says:

          I think they are perfect for each other. Neither loves the other person and they are both self centered. I feel sorry for the little girl because I don’t think her parents know how to love.

  4. error404 says:

    do you think Nick and Max meet up for housewife gigolo drinks?

    • Katie says:

      Yes and Slade hides in the corner taking notes on how to find one with real cash.

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        LOL- Slade, reminds me of the housewifes that are afraid a younger, hotter and better version of them will come along and take their meal ticket.

  5. Waxdiva says:

    Well, who didn’t know this one was coming!!! Danielle’s lesbian affair was a publicity stunt:


    • Sha2000 says:

      ‘The friend said, “Lori doesn’t do crazy. ”


    • nathania says:

      “the Danielle Staub-ness”. That is so funny.

      I think it was a moment of temporary insanity for Lori, because she seems like an otherwise well-rounded person. Same with that DJ that Kim Zolciak was messing around with. I can’t understand this to save my life, there are some beautiful lesbians in the world, especially around New York, why on earth these women are going after washed up, crazy straight chicks is beyond me.

  6. Wall St Lady says:

    Had Enough sent this to me

    PACER docs are sometimes not posted right away/in order. That’s why the court order granting the motion to lift stay was on the 1601 Maple Avenue address (service station, U-Haul place), even though the motion I’d seen was on the other Maple Ave address (pizza place).So if they get booted from the pizza place, I guess that is one less source of income…they have to rely on Teerashy’s personal appearances in crappy little bars and nail salons and she is going to have to go back to RHoNJ because she’ll really need the $$.Now they are both posted:10/26/2010 115Order Granting Motion For Relief From Stay re: 1576 Maple Avenue, Hillside, NJ (Related Doc # 88 ). The following parties were served: Debtor, Debtor’s Attorney, Trustee, US Trustee and Movant’s Attorney. Signed on 10/26/2010. (wdh) (Entered: 10/26/2010)
    10/26/2010 116Order Granting Motion For Relief From Stay re: 1601 Maple Avenue, Hillside, NJ (Related Doc # 89 ). The following parties were served: Debtor, Debtor’s Attorney, Trustee, US Trustee and Movant’s Attorney. Signed on 10/26/2010. (wdh) (Entered: 10/26/2010)
    Access to the 12/9 motion to lift stay on the house (6 Indian Lane) is still blocked.

    • Waxdiva says:

      The 1601 Maple was one of the properties they “forgot” to list when they filed their bankruptcy. Who did these morons think they were dealing with? The Feds can find out who your fifth grade boyfriend was and the Joo-dices think they’re going to hide properties from them? They’re getting a harsh wakeup as to how the US Gov works when you try to play with them.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      So are these properties they “forgot” to put on the original petition? By lifting the stay does that mean these properties will be sold to pay creditors (which ones will be interesting)? The net is tightening around these two and once the stay is lifted off the mcmansion the circus will begin in earnest.

    • Katie says:

      WSL please tell had enough that I haven’t had nearly enough and I miss the informative and intelligent posts!

  7. realminkey says:

    I just love BH and especially Lisa. She has the best Greek chorus lines since Bethanny.
    And the way the cotton candy segment was edited was hilarious. First time I’ve laughed out loud watching Housewives in a long time!
    Enjoyed it all so much, I stayed up and watched the ep a second time after WWH.

    • Sha2000 says:

      Which one is Lisa? I didn’t even know there was a Lisa, lol.
      Taylor seems nice, Camille is reminding me Danielle more & more.

      • nathania says:

        Yep I think Kim can heave a sigh of relief that she is off the hook as being painted as ‘the crazy one’ on this show. Camille is clearly more than a bit koo koo.

    Who is rumored to b gay !
    Kelsey ?

    • Waxdiva says:

      Kelsey’s gay? Really?

      • realminkey says:

        No way!

      • MickeyMouth says:

        I always thought Kelsey was similar to Charlie Sheen in his “dating”. Doesn’t he have a history of strippers and porn stars as well?

        • Waxdiva says:

          Camille is his third wife and she was in porn (soft core); she was also the nude woman in the Howard Stern movie. Good comparison between Charlie Sheen and Kelsey.

          • quincyil says:

            OK, I know know what Kyle was referring to in that interview. This is the reason Kelsey would fly to NYC to meet Camille. It says so much for their relationship.

            • nathania says:


              that makes more sense.

              I think she has some serious ‘issues’. The overtly sexual conversation ( and dancing like a stripper) in front of other women’s husbands is a quick way to turn them against her. She does have that same over-sexualization that screams incest survivor just like Danielle Staub. How can a woman have that much money and still not find her way into a good therapist’s office at some point. Or it could be that all that money is exactly how they stay insulated from reality.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I thought is was the guy who played his brother on Frazier that was gay…so who is the rumor about?

      • jen says:

        David Hyde Pierce, and yes he is gay

        Don’t think Kelsey is

        • RubyNewbie says:

          I think Kelsey was (maybe still is?) a bit of a superfreak. Might’ve been a few men back in the day along with who knows what. He certainly seems alot more stable now than back in his cocaine bust “Cheers” days.

  10. Wall St Lady says:

    Now we know that Mrs Ape is a delusional pathological liar !
    She is dangerous !

    Teresa, however, maintains that her marriage is strong. “I have a great husband,” she tells Life & Style. “I wake up every morning and I’m like, ‘Thank you, God.'”

  11. Amber...Real Wife says:

    I can’t stand it when i’m right! I get tired you know.

    That Kyle is a monster. She is Kim’s protector, attacker, supporter, victimizer, cheerleader and critic all in one! My, my, finally Kim is getting positive attention, and here comes Kyle quickly knocking her down, making her feel bad. She brings up the date, to then criticize Kim’s past relationships. Crazy and cruel. This is more like …
    Whatever happened to Baby Jane. Kim is Joan Crawford and Kyle is Betty!

    • Waxdiva says:

      Amber: Carolinebacker….hahahahaha

    • JazzNightOut says:

      I thought I was the only one seeing Kyle. She is part of the dysfunction too.

      • babykakes says:

        have you never read about Kim, Kyle & Kathy Hilton’s mother?
        can’t remember the name of the book but a large part of it is on the internet. then look at the famous for natha Paris. I knew the senior Kathy Richards & baby sat for her 3 girls. she was some piece of work! no wonder her off spring are so f’d up.
        if you google Kathy Richards sr., or Kathy Hilton’s family you’re in for some GOOD reading. Kathy sr. was known for always throwing parties to fix up her girls with rich men, boys, & didn’t care who did who. i will try & find the book title.

        • babykakes says:

          found it,,,”House Of Hilton”..thru google. go on the sites
          by the author Jerry Oppenheimer. it starts with the family tree & continues thru the table of contents, chapters, & lots of the books contents. very interesting
          reading..if you care.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      It has to be exausting to take care of a needy and demanding sister while trying to raise her own family. Kim makes bad choices and Kyle has probably had to pick up the pieces for a long time – thus the promise to their mother to take care of Kim.

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        @Jazz, Yes I see her too!

        @WCW, She made a promise to her mom to take care of her sister. While parenting Kim, Kyle still engages in sibling rivalry and the competition between these two even trickles down to their kids. You can’t claim to protect someone and attack them. When Kim was feeling good, about her date, here comes Kyle reminding her of past mistakes, in front of new friends, and their husbands too. Who does this? Her sister looked hurt and embarassed. She enjoys being able to control her sister’s feelings. She builds her up to tear her down. She probably enjoyed the poll question “Who would you prefer as a sister?” but called in to WWHL just to look like the caring sister, who wanted to protect her sister’s feelings. I’m sure she loves her sister, but resents her sister too.

        • RubyNewbie says:

          Yes, this relationship seems to be a little dysfunctional. Not that most sibling relationships aren’t. Where does Kathy Hilton fit in all this? Is she going to make an appearance on the show? I don’t see her as a mother hen type. More like a passive party monster. I sympathize with Kim because there’s no telling what she went through as a child star. Hollywood is so predatory. I give her credit for not being a broke crackhead. Kyle too. And their kid’s haven’t flashed their hoo-ha’s or made a sex tape. Soooo…a couple more points for them I guess! LOL

          • KellitaM says:

            So true! Sounds like they both spent their 20s raising kids instead of raising hell. I admire both of their devotion to their children.

        • nathania says:

          Yep, I am glad someone else here is seeing this garbage. It’s called codependency.

          I don’t think Kim needs a husband, she is already in an abusive relationship with her sister. She needs to WAKE UP and watch these clips and see it for what it is, and set some serious boundaries with Kyle, i.e., ‘stay out of my dating life, stay out of my relationships with my children, do not insult me or my choices in public,’ etc etc etc. If Kyle would quit trying to demolish her sister I would think she was an okay person but her continued attacks on Kim’s self-esteem make her out to be a petty and vindictive bitch who can’t get over a sibling rivalry that should have been over years ago. The worst of it is that I don’t think poor Kim even has a clue how badly she is being abused by Kyle. It seems like she really wants to have a good relationship with Kyle but from my perspective unless Kyle learns to zip her lip it is not worth the abuse for Kim to continue.

          I suspect there is something really wrong in Kyle’s life, either with her marriage or something else, for her to be so doggedly focused on something else outside her own business like this.

          • Cheri says:

            I bet you money Kyle played second fiddle to Kim when they were growing up and was very resentful of it. I think she never got over her jealous feelings about her sister. I do remember Kim as a child actress but not Kyle. I am surprised though at how needy Kim seems to be. Totally dysfunctional family though

      • psol says:

        I agree!

    • sugarmagnolia10 says:

      I agree about Kyle…(she does have freaking fantastic hair though). She bugged me from the first episode. She proved why she was a “child” actress….cuz she’s not good enough to be an adult actress! That fear of flying crap….load of diaper innards. The flight from LA to Vegas is about 35 minutes. You ascend, fly for a few minutes, then descend and land. I think she is quite smug in her comments to and about the other housewives. But, she’s the worst kind of b!tch, cuz she does it all with a smile, but is really shooting out venom.

      Adrienne is also just gross. I think she was probably a very beautiful, ethnic woman before she decided to change all of her features into a barbie. Does she not know that we can see her roots, her extensions, and all of her plastic surgery? Her boredom and near disgust of her husband is sad….

      I hate this show, but I hate myself more for watching!

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        While I don’t think she has the talent to be a capable adult actress, she does do a pretty good impression of Camille- it actually gave me a laugh.

      • nathania says:

        I noticed something similar last episode and I bet she would be a stunning woman if she would let some of her natural personality through by letting her hair go dark and not doing so much botox so her face isn’t so frozen. Because unlike some of her counterparts she is an interesting woman and her strength really comes through. She seems like a bird of a different feather and unfortunately for whatever reason she feels the need to disguise rather than flaunt some positive things about herself. It’s very strange.

  12. Wall St Lady says:

    Do u think we could hire
    “Baby Jane” to cook her rodent roast for Ape woman ?

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      LOL I’d feel sorry for Betty come reveal time! Even if Tree were in a wheelchair I’m sure she’d wreck Betty good!

  13. boston02127 says:

    Alison—-Thanks for the great blog. 🙂

  14. error404 says:

    I feel bad for Kim and Kyle.

    They are the only two with an actual storyline. Entire movies have been made about sibling rivalries.

    They are the only two who aren’t using the show to either shill their rag and bones (Adrianne and Lisa) or jockey for employment after their sham marriages crumble (Camille and Taylor).

    Their dysfunction is a welcome relief from the unending info-merical hawking Adrienne’s empire that is the core of this franchise.

  15. WindyCityWondering says:

    Latest episode of BH felt like the ladies are very uncomfortable in front of the camera and with the little scenes that are set up for them. Why would these women go to a Jay-Z concert? Why do we have to watch them interact with their husbands or even have them on the trip to Las Vegas? Where is the pampering spa days, over the top shopping sprees, jewelry and clothes to ogle, the household help/what should I wear drama? I want to like this franchise but I am getting bored….

    • error404 says:

      “Why would these women go to a Jay-Z concert?”

      So Adrienne can show off what famous talent her venues attract. It’s a 13 episode corporate marketing video!

      “Why do we have to watch them interact with their husbands or even have them on the trip to Las Vegas?”

      To create tension in the group dynamic. Kyle and Lisa’s strong marriages vs. Camille and Taylor’s failed ones. Kyle and Lisa’s girl-gossip BFFs clique vs. Camille’s man whoring insecurity and Taylor’s doormat to a man mentality. etc..

  16. jen says:

    I thought Russell orginally said working in Scottsdale, then it was Pheonix….so….hmmm?

    I hate Camille more and more- if another woman sat there talkign about her perfect breasts with my husband- oh boy! Honestly, Camille is sooooo alrmingly insecure it’s actually a bit maddening to watch. Also, I don’t believe a secodn Kyle said that because first, it’s an akward sentance, no one speaks like that and two, I think Camille is reflecting her own insecurities onto plp when they interact with her. I think he true fear is that plp don’t want her without Kelsey, I feel a little bad for her because what will she do now that he’s left her when obviously all she has is him (but only a little bad bc she annoys me so)

    I love Kyle but she didn’t need to say that about Kim’s husbands at that table in front of everyone, its just being cruel to be cruel.

    Lisa is my fav!!!! She is hilarious. I think all the BH HW seems very secure and can admit their own faults (aside from camille) – at least more then any other shows, which shows me they are the real deal

    • error404 says:

      I caught the city change too. I’m just waiting for the revel that “business”‘s real name is Candy!

      I don’t feel bad for Camille at all. It’s not like he was little Johnny innocent when she snagged him. Gold-diggers reap what gold-diggers sow.

    • nathania says:

      When Camille first started saying that stuff I felt a twinge of sympathy but now I see it for what it is, she is an incredibly annoying person to be around. She’s either referencing her wealth constantly, acting like a stripper and hitting on other women’s husbands right in front of them, or whining. I imagine she does not have many friends that don’t have sexual feelings toward her. Certainly she probably can’t keep women friends for very long, she really embarrassed herself multiple times in that episode and probably isn’t even aware of it.

    • babykakes says:

      putting others down usually makes on feel better about themselves..
      it’s called self-esteem

    • kit says:

      She’s come a long way. She used to do soft core porn.

    Finally after many attempts one of my comments made it through (on Johnny’s TC-Desserts Blog). The only thing I can think of is I used a new email addy- I bet the other one was ‘banned’.

    Oh I forgot to mention- great blog!

    Taylor’s cotton candy scene maybe made me realize why Russell married her too (lol, kidding….sort of).

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      The cotton candy thing was so pathetic, the only thing sadder than a attention whore that tried to hard, is an old attention whore who tries to hard.

      • iwannabeanarchy says:

        OMG – the cotton candy scene was soooo disturbing! The combination of her grotesque features and the fact that she was fellating the cotton candy was just so painful to watch. Just when I was starting to feel sorry for Taylor, as it seems she has a really unhappy life – after that scene I was completely disgusted. And Jen, you’re probably right, that probably is the reason Russell married her!

  19. This is a repost from the middle of the night. I feel MUCH better now, but don’t want to rewrite so I decided to just cut and paste. Thanks Butter and Lynn!
    There were a couple of us writing on the blog in the early morning hours.

    I thought I was finished with being sick but nooooo… I had an outpatient procedure on Thursday w/ ALL of the adverse effects, so have had a rough, rough night. (I had the same once before 6 years ago and had none.) So I am awake in the middle of the night. While it is minor and short-lived, I don’t like being in pain, quiet and without wheels.

    RHOBH finally seems like an honest RH group. I believe they are just as hollow and vacuous as they are portrayed on screen. I believe their lives are a non-stop wasteland of Botox and dressed up dogs. I remember seeing a few of them during their TV careers when I have been reminded, and in step-and-repeat photo ops. I don’t think we will be surprised with a bankruptcy from any of these – but then again in this economy who knows?

    It is interesting to watch Tree push the Bravo envelope, but I strongly suspect we are being played again with what makes the NJ cast so popular – violence. Even though most of us deplored the violence of Tre and Co., human nature drew us to it. Is it any wonder we found the DC gang so boring Post-NJ?

    Just a few middle of the night musings,

    This is a link to Kelsey Grammer’s new girlfriend. They look like a surprisingly normal couple. I imagine it is almost more insulting that he left Camille for a non barbie type.

Not that he is any prize because I’m sure there are lots of skeletons there but she does not appear to have any substance below her surface at all; if there is some she keeps it well-hidden.

    Chelsea Autumn compares Patti Stanger to a “fat trainer”.

    As head of Millionaire’s Club International matchmaking service and star of Bravo’s The Millionaire Matchmaker, Patti Stanger has made a name for herself with her nononsense, no-holds-barred take on finding a mate. But Patti’s former right-hand woman, Chelsea Autumn, says the brash reality star is “just like you see on TV, but 10 times worse!”

    Chelsea, who recently parted ways with Patti, is also calling out her old boss for not being a hypocrite. Patti broke up with longtime love, fiancé Andy Friedman, back in August. “I mean, they were dating for eight years before he proposed,” Chelsea explains. “That says it all right there.”

    And now she wonders if Patti’s really qualified to play Cupid: “It’s kind of like going to a fat trainer if your matchmaker isn’t even married or in a relationship, right?”


    • error404 says:

      someone remind me, didn’t Chelsea also have a female coworker who quit because when she suggested Patti give them a once in 5 years raise, Patti went all Teressa table-flipping on her?

      then she hired the guys wife, both of whom look like reject cast from LA Inked.

      • Waxdiva says:

        I clearly remember the episode when they discussed the pay raise and I think the Napa trip was Patti’s idea of a raise. Anyway, Alison left soon after that. I found this short (2:30 min) clip of MM with Alison… and Patti discussing her matchmaking v her mother’s matchmaking:

        Back in the day, I worked for Together dating service. I can say from experience that the Stanker is full of crapola when she starts bragging about her matchmaking skills.

    We’re not sure what’s more troubling: That a public university pays “Real Housewife” Jill Zarin $15,000 to address collegians, or that she is referred to as “artist” in her appearance contract.
    The “Real Housewives of New York” cast member appeared before a tiny crowd last month at the University of South Florida to talk about who knows what and sign copies of her book “Secrets of a Jewish Mother” (currently Amazon ranking: 284,686). Zarin’s appearance contract, excerpted above, guaranteed her the 15 grand, accommodations in a hotel suite, and a $100 per diem. Airfare for the 46-year-old Zarin (whose corporate alter ego is “JBZ Enterprises, LLC”) was also covered by the school.
    By comparison, Meghan McCain, daughter of Senator John McCain, only banked $11,300 for a USF “lecture” last Wednesday. Next month, the school is shelling out $15,000 for comedian/”Daily Show” contributor Aasif Mandvi to provide a behind-the-scenes look at the “REAL Fake News.”

    Can you believe this???

    • Sha2000 says:

      No. Megan McCain is a bright & interesting girl, I can see why she’s paid…but a HW??? Who care if she has a book. Jewish mothers have great advice & they are happy to give it for free…not secrets left worth paying for.

    • klmh says:

      If I were an alumnus/contributor to the University of South Florida, I believe my hackles would be up on this school’s decision to waste $15,000 on an event benefiting maybe a few people, rather than helping to further a student’s education…

      • Yeah—-that’s why parents have to pay a $900., “activity fee”, that the student council can use to book entertainment.
        At least that’s how it worked at the Universities that mine went to.
        Thank-you for posting that Lynn, I sure that the parents at that University, and any US taxpayer, by way of student loans, and federal aid, and in Florida, isn’t tuition paid by the state?….
        Yeah–nice to see where the money is going-(sarcastic).

        • OK—I’m doing the math here and its making me sick.
          (copied from UofFlorida blog)
          Jill Zarin, an entrepreneur and TV personality from “The Real Housewives of New York City,” spoke to a crowd of about 100 people on Tuesday night in the Marshall Student Center’s (MSC) Oval Theater — about 400 less than what Kristie Gerber, director of student activities, anticipated Monday afternoon.

        • jillz68 says:

          While I don’t like that Jill is getting that much money to appear as she is clearly not worth it to me, my job currently is programming these types of events at one building at the school I work at. The fee at our school isn’t $900 (it is $6.00 per student per quarter) but it does pay for bands, comedians, dances, speakers, etc. The students VOTE for this fee. As more money is cut from schools, these things were lacking funding so students voted in various fees for non-academic items.

          If it works like our school, the student group finds a speaker or performer of some kind, puts together a budget, and gets it voted on by a finance committee made up of administrators and students. As long as it is a legal act and someone wants to bring this person of interest to the campus and can secure funding no one is going to stop them. If it is someone like Karl Rove they also need to provide adequate security and insurance but then they seek more funding. None of this stuff comes from taxpayer money. It is solely from fees that students can vote in or vote out. Our fee comes up every 3 years and while it is funded now, it could lose funding at some point.

    With the new legal docs about the bankruptcy case.
    -I tried to get current with the latest about the RHWONJ, but I can see that you guys are way-ahead of the, “latest” already!

  29. Remember when Jac wrote one of her weekly blogs on Bravo & I (@amia009) pointed out that she mentioned Danielle’s name 86 TIMES (I had to copy & paste it in MIVROSOFT WORD PERFECT10 then in word count put “Danielle” in then it highlighted her name 86 times. (No Jac wasn’t obsessed with her at all) So, I wonder if anyone will count how many times Camille says “Kelsey” name in the RHBH series.

  30. So Perez Hilton will be in my city, (AC) this weekend. Kim Z. Tweeted something too–so I mentioned to future-ex to keep his eyes open and if he sees Perez, or KimZ, to call me & hand them the cell-phone.
    He calls me back & invites me to “exclusive”, after-party, w/Perez. One catch, I have to be his, (husband’s), date.
    The future-ex will ditch me like he always does, which is fine with me, so I’m thinking of going.
    Anyone else going to be in AC this weekend?

      OK I am very confused about your future-ex … he is your estranged husband but you are friendly… right? I am confused by “I have to be his, (husband’s), date.” which almost sounds like you have to be HIS husband’s date … ?
      Anyway you all sounds fairly OK with your respective lives.
      Have fun!

      • I wish he had a husband, or another wife! Yeah we are exactly estranged, which is how I usually refer to it, except around him.
        (the word bothers him, he thinks it means that he is strange).
        Right now we are on speaking-terms, but that could change at any moment.
        -About the invite, he says that I would have to be his guest, but I gave-up going out with him while we were still together, since he has a way of disappearing. (a red-flag for a bad relationship, wish I had known the 1st time that it happened).
        But if I go with the assumption that he will wander-off, I could have some fun?
        Except that I never know with future-ex, maybe he always just does the opposite of what I expect…..he really is too high maintenance for me.

        • Adgirl says:

          Arrgh. Men. Yes I had a disappearing man and he was always late (very late). People like that will never be good mates because of their self centeredness. I found it manipulative too.

  34. Amber...Real Wife says:


    Camille was really shaking her money maker on last night’s episode, wasn’t she? She was dancing like a woman possessed. If only it had been done without cameras or the other husbands there. But they were there and it was way past inappropriate. She was performing for herself, the cameras, the club patrons, the HW’s and their husbands. TOO MUCH! Is she like this with Kelsey present? Are they that freaky couple and Kelsey enjoy other men “watching” his wife? She definitely LOVES the male attention. Imagine her now as a single woman.

    I can believe she’s a guys girl, as many women wont like her overly friendly, flirtatious, intimate conversations and stripper dance moves. She’s a seductress, but it’s all for show as she really doesn’t want the men that fall victim. While she was dancing for those “old” guys, they GAGGED when beautiful NICK came to dinner. Their Camille fantasies were left in Vegas as they realized if she’d “cheat” it’d be with a looker, not a wallet! The ladies LOVED IT!

    • quincyil says:

      Camille is Danielle with money when it comes to dancing and possible soft porn in her past.

    • boston02127 says:

      I don’t see Camille as a guys girl. I see a guys girl as someone who likes football & drinks a few beers & pigs out. I see Camille as a desperate type that’s somewhat slutty and very self absorbed.

      • nathania says:

        that’s a good point. Someone who legitimately enjoys those things, because they do, not because they are desperate for sexual attention ever second of the day because it’s the only worth they feel they have.

    “A trick for her, a treat for the rest of us!

    The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Danielle Staub was reportedly attending a Halloween event near her local New Jersey swamp, when she was served with legal papers – just as she began walking the red carpet!

    Holy shiz! Awkward! LOLz!

    Sources claim that it was for a defamation lawsuit filed by ex-boyfriend Steve Zalewski, who is livid over her claims that he made their sex tape without her consent!

    Uh-oh! It’s going to tough for her to back up her previous allegations against him when half of the tape is of her filming HERSELF!

          I was researching Camille. She stands to get 30 million and there was no prenup. For all of the houses and the upkeep, 30 million is going to go fast.

          I’m surprised that Kelsey Grammer only has 85 million with 17 houses all over the planet and all of the work he has done. They must have spend money like drunken sailors.

          • nathania says:

            I know, that is a huge sum but for her it’s doubtful it will be enough. I wonder how much the four nannies cost each year.

            She had to take 7 or 8 staff to new york just for a visit…her home staff of paid employees must be huge to upkeep all the homes and land. I and the next generation or two could live comfortably off that for a long time but someone like her will be shouting “Am I Poor?” just like Edina on abfab.

            • quincyil says:

              I was thinking about Kelsey’s 17 houses too. What a waste of money to have so many houses empty with staff and designer decorations. How could you possibly visit all 17 houses in a year with the children in schoo? The yard people alone would cost a fortune. She should give the big house to Kelsey and move into something more modest.

    Did anyone watch Project Runway finale?
    I was shocked about Gretchen winning over Mondo. Her prints were so boring that I found her looks dull. Maybe because I live in Berkeley, I felt her outfits weren’t fashion forward. Although, when I thought about it, if Gretchen had used more variety and boldness in the fabric it would have made a huge difference . The loosness makes her outfits appealing to older women too.
    Mondo- poor guy.

    I kind of thought Nina and Michael Kors had taken a lot of shit about prior winners not amounting to much.

    • Raises hand! Another PR fan here!
      I loved Mondo’s collection too, but think he threw himself under the bus when he didn’t follow Michael and Nina’s advice on the final dress. The buzzwords for the night were “wearable” and “on trend.” I was sick of hearing them…
      Looking at Gretchen’s collection today on the Project Rungay archives, it doesn’t seem as old as it did last night. With a different color palette and fabrics, it would change her point of view from “wearable” to “on trend.” But I still think many of Mondo’s collection were much more “wearable” than Nina and Michael gave him credit for. As for his design drama, for Gods sake, it is a fashion SHOW! Bring on the color!
      I also liked many of the construction details in Andy’s collection. The woven tie front top was unique, and his pleating was over the top. His details were too subtle for the big runway though.
      I am sure you already read it, but projectrungay.blogspot.com is great for latest news and archives about PR.

      Gretchen winning was crazy ! Fashion forward ? Everything was about the same type of print. It looked more like something from the 60s or 70s. I guess Kors and Nina won that argument. Her stuff was downright fugly if you ask me….of course none of the judges did. It seemed like the only way her stuff won was with accessories. That I didn’t get at all. If the clothes can’t stand on their own then she should have been out. I felt bad for Mondo and I did like that polka dot dress. Andy’s clothing were gray and green…very boring.

  39. Some more about Danielle from the red-carpet event last night from Radar:

    Staub has been quick to move on: she showed up at an event on Thursday night in New Jersey with a mystery man!

    “It became a complicated relationship,” the friend added about Lori and Danielle.

    “Danielle’s an all-or-nothing person and maybe it’ll have to be the nothing because Lori’s not dealing with the all.”

    When asked about what caused the women to part ways, the friend simply replied: “The Danielle Staubness.”

    Their tumultuous relationship is reminiscent of Danielle’s other relationships on the hit Bravo reality show.

    The friend said, “Lori doesn’t do crazy. It’s been a series of things. The truth is they both tried to make the relationship work on many levels. It’s been complicated. Danielle does her thing and Lori does hers. Lori appreciates the goodness when Danielle was able to give it, and I’m sure she appreciates what Lori has done”

    • Sha2000 says:

      “Lori doesn’t do crazy.”

      But she did it for the exposure to see how far it would take her…

      Another winner.

      • Adgirl says:

        I really find Lori’s attitude about Danielle to be so fake. So she dated a very well known reality star and didn’t realize Danielle was intense and volitale? Really?? Didn’t she watch 5 minutes of RHONJ?

        • nathania says:

          I think they came together during the part where it was obvious to everyone that Danielle was being crucified as the resident ‘villain’ when clearly the other ladies were no better or different than her, just more talented at playing to the camera and their audiences. Danielle can’t keep the histrionic stuff toned down for anyone though and because of that she doesn’t get much sympathy because her behavior seems exhausting. She probably plays pitiful to people who are sexually attracted to her very well. I actually am surprised that Lori tolerated her for as long as she did, Lori apparently got involved through Jillian, and seeing someone around their child gives you a different perspective than what the NJ ladies saw.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        yup- I noticed that too. Threw Danielle right under the bus. Threw Kim under the bus with the pregnant or not question too.

        I’m sensing that Miss Lori might not be too stable herself.

    Holy cow! Have you read Kelsey Grammer’s wikipedia? He was married to strippers and Camille was a Playboy bunny. He has had children out of wedlock and he is ending marriage number 3.

        On August 12, 2010, Grammer announced that he was going to be a dad for the fifth time with girlfriend Kayte Walsh.[23] Donatacci only found out through tabloid media reports that his 28-year-old girlfriend was already expecting. On October 9, 2010, Grammer announced that Walsh had miscarried six weeks earlier.[24]

          When my husband told me over the phone I screamed and instantly got my period all over the floor. He then told me his mistress was there with him and listening on another phone. Nope, it’s never “kind”.

          • Adgirl says:

            OK. I will never forget you said that.

            I’m really sorry you went through that, but that guy was a bum. I hope you’ve found someone who cherises you.

            • Zipit Zarin says:

              Yeah, and he’s still a bum. Thanx for your kind wishes 😀

                My husband’s partner has taken his adultress to his wives home for a large party that he forced his wife to have for his nurse. We saw the adultress with her husband and it seemed that she was familar with the house that she had never officially been to before. The partner’s wife discovered a credit card with lingeree bills and she never received lingeree. It was horrible for the wife. He married the adultress on the wife’s birthday. They invited everyone and everyone came.
                The adultress also told us that she wouldn’t send her boys to public school where our children went because she wanted them to learn values in Catholic School. All I could think of is…well they won’t learn them at home with mommy. The adultress had had affairs with three other men. Two of those marriages failed. One couple moved out of state.

                There are predators, like the adultress, out there and Kyle told us that too. If Camille found a man that was interested in her and had enough money, she wouldn’t care if he was married and his children would suffer.

                I read that Kelsey was in a relationship when he started an affair with Camille.

                I’m sorry that you suffered. We know that that these people are out there and we care about your feelings. Hugs…


          • OneMoreInBoston says:

            oh @zipitzarin- my heart is breaking for you. Why are people so cruel to each other? But all I can hope from this is that he was so cruel that it was in actuality a disguised kindness so you could find the strength to move on.

            What did the barber say at the barbershop?


            • Zipit Zarin says:

              Thanx Quincy and OMIB 😀 That was a looong time ago. My youngest was almost 2 and now he’s 24. Yeah, he is cruel beyond words. I thought it would end when I divorced him but it only got worse and more devious. Will spare you more horror stories but I dunno why people are cruel. They get off on it I guess.

    I loved this episode of RHBH! I like Lisa and Adrienne. I think Russell might be gay and I thought that before I started reading the earlier posts. I do belive that Taylor married him for money and is starting her seperation. I also think that Camille and Kelsey already knew their marriage was over and he helped her out by being in the show in the beginning. Doesnt it seem strange that he gets together with a flight attendant and shes blatanly flaunting this guy in front of the cameras when her husband just left. She is narcissitic and could care less about the other woman. She is a classic case of “all about her” and then plays the victim when people dont react well to her. Im guessing she could be with any man and people would find him more interesting. I almost died when she tried to act like she does everything for everyone else while she has 4 nannies, a husband on the other side of the country, house manager, and plays “foreplay” tennis with a hottie.

    I really believe this girl is Jill. Her new post…..

    So i received a call the other day off my Deputy Principal, she was informing me that somebody had personally emailed my school enquiring about me. They asked if i was a real 17 year old teenager that attended the school and if they could pass on contact details for me. They included details of my blog. I was bit weirded out because the only place that has my school name is my Facebook which is on private. Some how they tracked my school. I searched my Twitter account and i have never mentioned my school by name only my town. SOOO! How the hell did you get my school info???
    Well anyway my DP was proud of my blog! (:
    This all happened a day after i received these comments on my blog; (These are the G rated comments!)

        I’m confused. When I go to freely vivacious blog is that your blog boston or theirs because part way through it seems to switch around….

        • Zipit Zarin says:

          Remember that movie about two Aussie girl friends who murdered one of their mothers because the mom tried to put a stop to their obsession? What was it called? Why am I thinking of those girls in relation to Foghorn? Because of the inappropriate obsession, that’s why.

        • boston02127 says:

          @Adgirl–Free Vivacious is not my blog. I found it on Jill’s tweets. I’ve been following it & think it has to be Jill.

          You can go to my blog by clicking on my name.

    • Just Me says:

      Boston – I’m sure you’re right about this blog being written by Jill herself. No 17 yr. old girl on the planet talks like this (from her first post on the blog):

      “I’m a Gingerette! : Otherwise known as Team Jill OR The Jill Zarin Cheer Squad!. We are a group of ladies and men who support Jill. We look up to Jill because she is such a beautiful person and role model.”

      No kid is going to refer to their friends as “ladies and men.” But a middle-aged woman would.

      Of course, since Jill reads this blogs, she’ll probably go back now and correct this Freudian slip.

      • Zipit Zarin says:

        HAHA! Good call. It’s hard to read because it’s so disturbing. I skimmed it and then hadda take a shower. Good grief. Whether it’s written by Foghorn or a teen, someone has serious issues.

      • AZ Girl says:

        Oh PLEASE!!! I just read the entries in that blog and give me a break. What 17 year old writes like that? What 17 year old would give a rat’s ass about Jill Zarin. 17 year old girls are busy falling in love with “hot” celebrities and performers. Then the whole “bullying” things is just weird.

      That blog is bizarre. I’m sure Jill is behind it but I doubt she’s writing it, after the whole amazon.com fake review debacle. This girl is in Australia…didn’t Jill just go to Australia? I didn’t see the girl make any mention of having met Jill, but I skimmed through most of her blog. I could see Jill meeting this girl and being super nice to her and then asking her to write a blog letting people know how great Jill is, to counteract all the “bullying” done on blogs that hate Jill.

    I am on the board of a Fla. University. We also pay speakers what is called an honoraryium. Unless the guest is a struggling artist ,writer or researcher etc the guest usually donates the $$ back to the school.This is standard at any non for profit institution. ill is a disgusting pig if she kept the $$$ & did not donate it back to the school !

    • Zipit Zarin says:

      Why would she keep $15,000 if she’s so fricking rich. That’s chump change I would think.

    • If she only drew a 100 person crowd, I would think she would return it as a gesture of goodwill for damage control in the press. The tabloid headlines would be much different now if she had.

  45. Wall St Lady says:

    I was married on Halloween in NYC. We wanted a famous Park Ave church that wasn’t available for a year except Halloween. As an adult who doesn’t trick or treat we have lots of fun. And no my brides maids didn’t wear witches hats & carry lit pumpkins. But I told everyone that was the plan & many believed me.

    My younger brat/brother was born on Halloween. He claims I “messed” w/ his mind cuz I always told him he was a trick left on our front porch by a deranged witch & he believed me. He actually always had a fun party on the 30th & kids got to wear their costumes 2xs.

    That Gingerettes blog is very strange. It doesn’t read to me as if an Aussie wrote it. But they did use mum and not mom – but I suppose even Jill would know to do that.

    It’s a “djbellah” because in the desert it is very hot and it protects your body !

    And what are these ugly shoes that we have on our feet ?

    These are “babouches”, which keep us from burning our feet when in the desert !

      ROFL (I lived in the Detroit burbs for 10 years and my bestest friend is from Iraq…she married at age 15, (10 years older Dr. husband beat her on her honeymoon because she said the man in the movie they watched was handsome) moved to the U.S., learned English, had 4 daughters, then finished highschool, college and law school. Our daughters were friends in middle school and made us have lunch together to meet and we became fast friends. She handled my divorce. So anyway, I get the joke 😀

      • quincyil says:

        I get it too. I am married happily to an Iranian, but I have had a friend who was beaten by her Syrian husband and just recently a Pakistani from the Taliban area beat his Indian Muslim wife here. Some men are bruts, but the Sharia laws make women victims in their own societies. I don’t want Sharia here in America.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          I’ve wanted to ask your opinion of Sharia law a few times, because of your Iranian connection. Interesting.

            My sister in law from Birjand, Iran, hates Sharia and really hates the Taliban. She says she will leave Iran forever if the Taliban doesn’t leave South Korasan. They live near the border of Pakistan, Afganistan and Iran. That’s the real tri state area. The Afghanis are not allowed to go to school or have social services now. Their kids are growing up to hate everyone. It’s going to get worse and I don’t think we can do anything about it.

            • JKW says:

              Have you read, The Kite Runner ? or A Thousand Splendid Suns ? The Kite Runner is more about the Afgan males and the their life before and after the Taliban. A Thousand Splendid Suns is about the woman before and after the Taliban and their married life. Both were great books but esp were very disturbing.

                I just ordered them on Amazon after looking at your list. I have read “Reading Lolita in Tehran.” That was a good book, but my husband didn’t agree with it. He also thought the woman in “Not Without My Daughter,” made it up. I saw the movie and read that book. I believed her.

                My husband has two matching carpets that he promised me for our living and dining rooms, but the Islamic Republic would not let carpets go to the US. A cousin in law that imports pistachios and lives in DC, told me that he could arrange for my carpets to be smuggled out of Iran through Turkey. One day Luftansa in Chicago called and I ran up there with a tiny baby and two small children. My carpets were wet. The tickets showed that they had suddenly appeared in Istanbul. They were taken over the mountains on donkey back folded up just like they arrived in Chicago. We paid 2,000. The Chicago port authorities only charged me 75 dollars with a wink. He thought I was brave to come so quickly traveling 3oo miles with babies for those carpets. He showed me carpets from all over the world and told me that mine were the best he had ever seen. Little girls made them in family homes where their mothers call out the colors. There are thousands of knots per square. That’s how those families survive.

    Taylor looks like the nurse in the FOSTER FARMS chicken plumping TV ads….I’m just sayin her lips and overly filled/injected cheek bones make her look like a cartoon character. Which is sad as I’m all for plastic surgery, but the kind where you just look refreshed, not the Bev Hills Stepford Wife look with overly large lips, cheekbones and chins…bad combo. And if Adrienne doesn’t quit now she’ll be a member of the club by next year. BTW, I wouldn’t go to her husband for plastic surgery as she’s obviously a walking billboard for his surgical expertise which tells me he lacks a sense of aesthetics.

  52. nepenthe says:

    Oh yeah and about Taylor’s husband’s “business” trips….I call BS there.
    Let me tell you about my experience with men and their “business trips”. Years ago I had a roomie whose boyfriend, an older “businessman”, was always leaving for “business trips” on Sunday mornings, after spending the weekend at our house in Orange County, CA. I knew he was up to no good and told said roomie such but of course she wouldn’t listen. She ended up marrying him and ultimately found out he was STILL married to his wife who lived in Huntington Beach which was basically next door to Costa Mesa where she lived with the bigamist. Needless to say it ended badly for my roomie.

    I’ve digressed a tad so getting back to Taylor’s hubby….his financial woes have been in TMZ recently and I wouldn’t be surprised if he were up to no good….something’s not right there….just wait and see. As previously stated these “business trips” send up major alerts and I’m not even his wife. And if I had to hazard a guess I bet she’s feeling it too. By next season they’ll be on their way to divorce court and there won’t be any assets to divide….everything’s been smoke and mirrors.

    • Adgirl says:

      It’s a sad normality that apparently most (not all) men in the upper ranks professionally, financially or socially basicially behave like bachelors regardless of their maritial status.

      I am a little curious about the circumstances of when Taylor met her husband. Was he married?

      • Zipit Zarin says:

        The humorous part is when a woman cheats with said lothario and thinks she is the One who will cause him to suddenly find his morals.

          So true… Look at the Countess…wife four… 16 years…dumped.

          They all get dumped… ask Kelly Bensimon …wife three

    • cusi77 says:

      Taylor has been anticipating her hubby will leave her for a 20sh year old, younger and better, since interview # 1! It is not surprise for me she has had so many surgeries already to look “younger” (NOT) she just looks fake, from another specie… not human, for sure! I feel sorry for her… but she has been “calling” for her worst nightmare to become reality! Is the law! “Ask… and you’ll receive…”

  53. Wall St Lady says:

    nepenthe I agree so Ditto.
    I don’t believe Taylor’s husband could have bounced
    back from bankruptcy so quickly. I think Mr. Ape is his cousin.

    • quincyil says:

      I looked at that on google just now. I always thing about the little guys when these men and women file bankruptcy and seem to come out of it smelling like a rose. Mr. Armstrong made a huge mistake allowing Taylor to be on this show. He has no personality, looks like a nerd, and now he cheated hard working people out of their honest products that he pretended to buy. Sickening, another Joe Guidice. He’s a bully like Joe too.

      Well, there has to be a lowlife in every HW city. I thought Kelsey Grammer was going to be the icky husband. Now, we have two.

      • error404 says:

        It’s not a new show. It’s an old show that they keep changing to try and fix, but no matter what they do, every season it’s still a train wreck. I have no idea how it keeps making it to another season, it’s a favorite for critics to pick on it’s so bad.

      • TLM says:

        I doubt anyone under 30 knows who Iman even is, so if they’re trying to get younger viewers, forget about it. I am so turned off by the commercials. Iman is so angry that it’s frightening. I have no desire to watch the show.

    • error404 says:

      She makes Camille Alvarez sound like Alastair Cook! LOL

      Luckily Bravo shows the same commercials over and over again like brainwashers, so by the 107th viewing I figured out that “qwingfu wainn daiam. wenn mdinn wqalkn” was “It’s a fashion emergency and we need an evacuation!”
      but really, just the way she says “evacuation” makes me want to throw her back in the burning building.

  57. JKW says:

    Speaking of PR….. I can’t stand Gretchen or that she won. Her stuff wasn’t any different from the regular show and she wasn’t in the top 3 toward the end. First I think Michael C should have been there and she should have been eliminated. I don’t know that I would wear it but I did like the polka dot gown of Mondos. He should have won.

    • Adgirl says:

      It was weird wasn’t it? I lamost felt they were trying to find the most commercial collection because the prior winners haven’t made much of themselves (except Christian) have they?
      Gretchen’s stuff felt like recycled Uli with birkenstocks. And it was all brown. What if she chose more extreme fabrics? Maybe that would have been nice.
      Although I guess the flowy stuff would appeal to older women too.

      And the jewelry was terrible. Really bad – just a bunch of chevrons.

      • JKW says:

        Chloe ( can’t remember her last name ) has a line and it’s been on QVC. There is a show with Santino and what’s his name but it doesn’t look like they actually made it big. They usually criticize the commercial stuff. The strange thing is they pretty much said without accessories her stuff would suck. Obviously, Kors and Nina must have more pull than Heidi. I would have told them it’s my show and Mondo wins ! HA

        • error404 says:

          Chloe Dao and Austin Scarlet.

          I think it’s funny that on that rad show, Santino Rice always introduces himself to the clients as just Santino, but Austin always says Austin Scarlet.

        • ShyAsrai says:

          i remember in one of the few RHOC episodes i watched, one of the HWs went wedding gown shopping and at the salon, Austin Scarlet showed her his gowns. (his gowns were exquisite). it was the HW that married the guy with kids and they would have like 7 kids or so between them. ( i think)

          i remember being so surprised to see Austin.

      • I made a few comments upstream about Project Runway.

        After going back and looking at Gretchen’s collection, in another color palette and different fabrics it would have been more “up trend.” (Michael and Nina’s buzz words of the night) Uli’s collection looked so much better since it was made with richer, more vibrant colors. Gretchen did up her game in makeup and styling on the big runway.

        That being said, I did love Mondo’s collection. It showed so much variety, yet cohesiveness. It was a bit over the top, but like someone said…it is a fashion SHOW.

        If you want to see what Michael C would have had on the Final Runway go see:


        Michael C is the first designer. The last 7 designers present dummy collections at fashion week. All are filmed as if they are the winners.

      • AZLiving says:

        I just couldn’t get over the granny panties. If that’s the new fashion trend, I’ll be wearing the same clothes for years.

        Also, Nina and Michael didn’t even mention how bad they looked. These are very slim models and the look was not flattering for them.
        I’ve been very disappointed in PR since the move to lifetime. The focus is more on the drama and the prdocuts and less about fashion.

    • lillybee says:

      I think Mondo lost because he didn’t follow the judges’ advice. I think they wanted him to make his polka dot dress sleeveless.

      • JKW says:

        They said it could be clownish if he didn’t edit. That was mostly Kors though. I took it that he didn’t cross the line with the clothing he showed in the semi-finals. I don’t think he should have lost because of 1 dress. His line was much better than Wretchens. I also liked how April spoke up about Wretchen. Apparently after they saw her talking head moments, they realized she was a hypocrite. She would say nice things in the work room and then criticize off camera.

      • error404 says:

        He lost because Nina’s vote counts more than the others.

        He lost because she’s a bit of a self-hating latina who always tells the latino contestants that they have “taste issues”. Always.
        She was all over Casanova and Valerie for weeks until she finally got them auffed. Apparently PR is a styling competition now.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          wait a minute- what???

          I didn’t think she was a self hating Latina. I always thought she was a self hating mysongynist.

          I am going to watch more carefully next time it’s on.

          Do you think she is harder on the Latino contestants because she’s self hating? or because she doesn’t to want anyone else on the lifeboat so to speak?

          See posts like this is why I fell in love with you, but evidently you are impervious to my charms. 😉

          • error404 says:

            If anything, i think she’s harder on the boys ever since Santino yelled at her! LOL
            Michael C seemed to get the mini-mondo treatment: praise him all season long only to trash him in the end for producing the same clothes he has all along. The whole season was a head scratcher IMO.

        • JKW says:

          Why should Ninas vote count more than the rest ? Also if they don’t take the guest judge into account, why even have one ? It was obviously 2-2 and Nina and Kors won. I agree Gretchen upped her styling but this isn’t the …how can you accessorize shitty clothes to make them better show. And as for Gretchens being done in a different color you could say that about Mondo’s line too. His wouldn’t have looked so over the top with some solid colors. However, I didn’t think they judged on how the clothes would look if they changed them or accessorized them. Truthfully, Wretchen could have done the best line and I still wouldn’t have liked her.

          • error404 says:

            Marie Claire is the mag that promotes the show, the winner, and some challenge winners. It’s her mag that bears the brunt of who gets on the cover.
            She’s the only judge who’s job is affected by her judging decisions.

    • WaxDiva says:

      Gretchen was just as surprised as everyone else that she won. IMO, Jessica Simpson added zero to the judging process, other than she likes to watch the other judges fight. They really should get rid of the guest judge for the final show.

      • JKW says:

        I don’t know that they had guest judges at the finale before, have they ? I can’t remember. If they do they are usually designers. Jessica Simpson was a joke. Crazy they have designers there most of the season and the finale they bring her in. They pretty much ignored whatever she said.

        • error404 says:

          They always have a guest judge for the final, and they are always a semi-vague celeb.

          Unless you have a case to make that Deborah Messing is a fashion genius insider compared to Jessica Simpson. LOL

          The year JLo cancelled the day of the show, they had to use Tim Gunn as the 4th judge!

I am trying to give her some grace because she is going through a divorce and I am SURE she knew her marriage was over when Kelsy said, I am going to New York for a year. A YEAR?! A YEAR! Without your wife and kids. What sane man is not gonna have no good stuff for a year? Yeah right. The minute he booked that flight she knew. Just keeping it real. I think that is why she is lashing out. She is seeking attention. And she will probably be the breakout star of the season because she will have the most drama.

    Other than that and the SERIOUS MONEY these women are flashing, I am kind of bored with this show. It is nice to see how the “other half lives” AND THEY LIVE but their lives are pretty common outside of the 4 nannies and Palms retreats. 🙂

    By the way…I cannot imagine anyone in this group that knows ONE Jay Z song other than his commercial New York song and I am sure they just know the chorus and no lyrics. Jay Z is the upper echelon of the rap game so it is CHIC to say you have been to a Jay Z concert because he has crossed over and of course is married to one of if not THE MOST powerful women in R&B right now-Beyonce. I mean she did sing for the President. 🙂 So I can see them going but really it seemed kind of artificial.

    Well that’s it. I LUV ALL OF YA’LL!!! Lynn, do your thang girl! I am so proud of you!

      HD- tell us about your book!!!

      JZ & B did that “crazy in love” song together that was everywhere that year!

    • error404 says:

      I doubt that Camille legend in her own mind Gramer will be the break out star of the Kim and Kyle show, but who knows.

      Danielle worked her ass off during every episode of season one to make the whole show about her, in fact the show was nothing without her, only to have Ter flip a table in the very last 5 minutes of filming and steal all of the limelight. Seriously, I don’t know how Danielle never took out a contract on the other “ladies”.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      ur book???

      Tell us what is going on??? Where can i buy it/ read it???

  59. HD says:

    Also…I gotta talk about Real Housewives of Atlanta…I know this is the Beverly Hills blog but if you miss a day around here you are off and if you are on time you are late and you are late you can forget it! I only want to talk about two people because no one else is working my nerves.

    KANDI-Help me somebody! What is her problem?! Number one…I would have CLEAN TOLD KiM OFF ABOUT MY MONEY! Matter of fact, I would not have done that song without A CONTRACT! Kandi has been in the entertainment field TOO LONG! But okay… I will give you that…you did something for a friend, it blew up, you didn’t get paid…okay. WHY OH WHY would you agree to work on a new song?!! WHY?!!! And please tell me WHY YOU INVITED HER ON TOUR?! Kandi is one of those people that let people take advantage of her. She does not know her worth. I wouldn’t write out directions for Kim without her cutting me a check!

    PHAEDRA-Need I say more? Serious issues but she appears to be the star of the show for her constant “I-Am-A-Lawyer-That-Specializes-In-Bovine-Spillage” Unbelievable. Her husband was locked up for six years…six years…not six days…okay…and he is attractive…okay….You can believe what you want to, but I know what I know. A man is not locked up in PRISON, looking like him that is living straight. Funny, the gay friend knew him and knew he had been locked up. Okay. NUFF SAID! The baby shower, stupid. She rides horses…okay….when was the last time you have been on a horse? And NO OFFENSE because I got my own weight issues but when I saw her mom I thought, HONEY she has NOT been eating the finest food of the land. She is that big because she has been eating some greens with hamhocks while Phaedra is FRONTIN-meaning appearing to be something she is not-like she cooks gourmet meals for Apollo all day because that is what she was raised on. She is just another woman that has married a convict. Which I am not against that but don’t try to act like you poop purple when your stuff is the same color of everyone else on the planet! GET OVER YOURSELF!

    Any updates on Vicki? I hope she is ok.

      I read she is out of the hospital and her daughter is taking care of her. They attributed her issues to stress and said it was a wake up call for her.

    didn’t the tamra/jeana fight go down at Vicki’s party? that probably didn’t help her stress…

  62. butterisafruit says:

    Regarding Kelsy Grammer. I was a huge “Cheers” fan. I loved it. I watched every show and was at the Bull and Finch when they held the wake. So a few years later we were digging up Congress Street, and pouring cement (we’re in construction). All of a sudden all the laborers were excited and telling my husband the Cheers Guy was coming down the street. Grammar was with his daughter. She was around 12 years old at the time. My husband went up to him told him how much I liked the show. They had a bit of a talk and he posed for a picture with him. Then they took one of the yellow concrete delivery slips and he signed the back.

    It says………”Cheers” Mary Ellen, Kelsey G.

    I sent it to Lynn maybe she’ll upload. Sorry for the poor quality, my photography skills suck.

    A man 47 year old w/a $140 mil Ponzi from Saddle River NJ was sentenced to 40 years in jail. The judge asked him why did u buy a $30 mansion in the Hamptons with stolen $$$
    My point Madoff stole $60 Bil +
    And got life. It is fair that the “small” thieft vs the
    $60 bil got an equally harsh sentance. Stealing is stealing and this sends a strong message.
    It also makes me think of the frauds in bankruptcys. The law has developed a harsh stance on fraud. Getting away w/fraud leads to more fraud. Its like a drug.
    Jucy & Taylor’s hub will get what “goes around” at some point.

      Do onto others as you would have others do onto you. I live by that creed. If someone were to harm Teresa and Taylor in this way they would be outraged. Michaele sued her mother in law for 15,000 in wages and won, but she did not pay the vendor for the flowers at her wedding. When will these women realize that they are wrong to cheat honest people and that they harm society when they do this.

    Where have u been ? I hope u r not cheating on us ?
    Seriously ,u were missed !

    Hello Lynn’s Family,
    I have been busy remodeling my house, volunteering and enjoying my retirement. I lurk from time to time but there just so many comments it’s hard to keep up. I have missed adding my little input, I always try to read the blog when there is a new one – so many new additions to the Lynn family and so many others I don’t see any more. Wishing Lynn the best with the radio and the blog. I will check in from time to time – I am on my way to D.C.’s Eastern Market to spend this great crisp fall day.
    Take care all – I send you my five 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  68. Wall St Lady says:

    Had Enough had a very interesting perspective on Juicy’s cheating. I told her I wouldn’t want to b on the other end of her prosecution !


    Not so sure I buy the Life & Style story. Could be T&G planting it just
    to keep themselves in the news and trying to get Bravo to renew her
    contract for more money. Remember the fake twitter account that was
    supposedly Tara G? Lots of people speculated that it was T or T&G just
    jerking us around. These people are desperate and willing to do anything
    for money; they have no problem going on TV and making themselves look
    like trash, fools….so why not plant a story like this to keep
    interest? After all, the rumors have been circulating for a long time,
    so no harm comes from the rumors appearing in yet one more place.

    Lynn, did you really exonerate Danielle? This is from her twitter.

    @lefthandedmuse you are so right Actually It was proven that they fabricated the entire thing ~ thanks to @lynnchicago
    8:15 PM Oct 21st via Twitter for iPhone in reply to lefthandedmuse

    As for Jill’s speaking fee, it is not very common for people to give back their fees. She could have (and IMO should have) but most take their fees plus expenses. I am more curious to what her contract said and what else they paid for (ie. first class airline tix, suite) and I wonder what other expenses they were required to pay for (i.e. her entourage, other perks, etc.). I was a professional fundraiser for 15+ years and dealt with this all the time. I now serve on the boards of 7 non-profits so I am still aware of how things are working now.

    She’s a pig, but she didn’t do anything wrong except add another thing to her bad rep.
    Jill still doesn’t seem to grasp the concept that public perception is large part of being a popular celebrity.

    • Waxdiva says:

      Go to http://www.thesmokinggun.com for details re JZ’s contract.

      Only 100 people showed up… they were probably parents of the students!

      • Phoney Reality says:

        I think even parents of the students have better things to do. My guess is it was the friends and neighbors of Sol and Gloria’s from their retirement community and canasta partners from the community room. It was an outing for everyone.

        I would like to see the whole contract including the addendums. SG is only showing an excerpt which states they only paid her fee of $15k (too much for her but nonetheless both parties agreed) but not other expenses. It doesn’t show any addendums nor the history of the booking.

        I also wonder who recommended her as a speaker. Was it someone from the school or a pitch by Jill’s rep and when this took place. It seems to me that JZ got herself a sweet deal for doing nothing. Jill hit it lucky and made a very easy $15k.

        It’s the responsibility of the school to get the crowd so that wouldn’t affect her fee. What were they thinking? This was very poor planning on the school’s part. My only guess is that her rep or she knows someone and/or this may have been booked when she was still popular? Just guessing. Public or private funds, it was a stupid move on the schools part.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      I think Lynn found the tweets that were shown on the reunion, and Danielle’s one was in response to something like “Give me a big shout out for my birthday”, not “My birthday wish is Ashley …” It was all there in Danielle’s tweet log, but took some digging to get to. Why Bravo allowed the allegations and mistruth to air without doing that simple check is beyond belief. It took me about 10 minutes to double check for myself. So I guess Danielle is cleared on that particular allegation – as to the rest – who know

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        thanks for explaining that- I was getting a little lost…

        • Phoney Reality says:

          Ditto. Thanks!

          It’s hard to keep all of Danielle’s stories straight. I try not to pay attention since it makes my head spin. But someone pointed it out to me so thought I would ask.

  80. Adgirl says:

    Good morning from a west coastie!
    I finally watched BH last night on dvr. I was especially interested after reading this blog in watching Taylor and Russell.
    Confession here – my husband is a bit like Russell, awkward in new social environments, my guy is also a nerdy finance/scientist guy. Only my guy wouldn’t care about what clothes were packed. My husband would probably try to wear the same shirt all weekend.

    My thoughts are that Russell gathered up Taylor during the after concert party because he was attempting to spend “couples time” with her (after he was absent all day). I noticed he approached his wife while Taylor was pouring champagne for the ladies so maybe he was trying to interrupt her drinking?

    Maybe Russell only agreed to RHOBH to placate his bored wife?

    • quincyil says:

      or…they might make some money off the show. What exactly is the business that she runs?

      • Adgirl says:

        She has a SAP consulting business. SAP is computer software for running a business. I believe a consulting business would assist in mapping out the specific tasks and reporting a company would need the software to manage.
        She not a dummy inspite of her appearing on this show.

  81. 2Stupid says:

    Hi All! OT and a bit personal, but am finding myself having personal struggles of sorts. It can get very hard trying to be all things to everyone and failing short on all fronts. If some of you been there done that’s could give me a “it gets better” shout out I would really appreciate it. I am really struggling with being a working mom with two small children. You want to be able to do everything, but you can’t expect your employers to understand that you are never working. I would love to strike a happy medium, but am dealing with a lot of guilt of my children’s lives are passing by. Encouragement please!

    • JazzNightOut says:

      Hi (not) Stupid: I know of nothing better at this moment than to send you a huge cyberhug (((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((not) Stupid))))))))))))))))))))))))). Take care of you; I lose perspective when I don’t take care of myself.

      • cusi77 says:

        Perhaps focusing in quality time instead of quantity will help you deal with guilt. What children remember is the time when you feel authentically happy (not like Kelly), relaxed and really paying attention to them. Remember that we are all new with every breath we take. Children live in the PRESENT… Be with them just now… past is gone, future is not yet arrived.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Make every minute you spend with your children quality time. You can’t be everything to everyone so be the best you can be to those who truly matter the most to you. And when you are feeling truly overwelmed take a step back and say thank you for the full and interesting life you have!

    • quincyil says:

      It’s a great weekend for quality kid time, girl. You can connect with your kids in short periods and that has tons of value. Smile, even when you think you can’t. They will love your smile and you.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      I have no kids.

      But my mother was a stay at home mom- focusing her entire life on us, and she said the exact same thing. That she should have been a better mother, that there were things that she wanted to with us and memories that she wanted to create and that she could never get those times back. And she was with us 24/7.

      I think it’s mother’s guilt is nature’s way of keeping us from eating our kids. (LOL!)

      I have found when facing difficult and overwhelming times, if I just concentrate on putting one foot in front of the other, it always works out to the best.

      You CAN do this.

      • Noelle says:

        I should have read your post before I posted my diatribe! Perfect!
        There’s profound truth in stating it’s a mother’s guilt is nature’s way of keeping us from eating our kids!
        Spot on and roflmfao!! 😀

    • Adgirl says:

      Mothers through the ages have always worked!! Women worked in other people’s homes, or in the fields, at theie homestead making food from scratch, chopping wood & tending the animals.
      And who took care of the family when the men were away making war?

      This society makes us feel guilty. If your children are in a warm loving environment when you can’t be with them then everything will work out fine.

    • boston02127 says:

      @2Stupid—I don’t have kids but I find myself trying to please everyone a lot of the time. You know I take care of my mother and sometimes (a lot) I find myself just breaking down and crying because I feel exausted, guilty, falling behind, etc. The more this disease (PSP) takes over her life the more demanding things are. It’s constant. Sometimes I feel like my head is going to explode. I have to always remind myself that tomorrow is a new day and this time with her is special.

                2Stupid I am 75, raised 4 children and one grandchild and I still suffer with anxiety over whether I did it right or not. When children are born the doctor puts in us a worry button and a guilty button. You are doing fine I”m sure. The fact that you are concerned shows that you are a good mother. Take it easy and laugh a lot with the chldren. That’s what they will remember, not the times you needed to cook and clean. Don’t be hard on yourself.

  83. Noelle says:

    Hang in there sweets, better days ahead! 😀
    I can feel your pain and understand your dilemma. It’s a never ending catch-22 but it doesn’t have to get the best of you.
    From my own experience, realize that you’re only human and realistically, there’s only so many things you can do. I tend to be stubborn and a bit..cough *anal* cough. 😉 I found that a lot of my own guilt/grief came from putting unrealistic demands on myself and it took a long time for me to realize that I would never put those demands on someone else..so why did I expect it from me. I still struggle with my own expectations/limitations but am getting better with alot of practice.

    When overwhelmed, a support system is a blessing. It can be friends, family, neighbors, community groups and even the wonderful people on this blog. I was always leery of asking for help (I was afraid I would appear weak/incapable..) but found asking/accepting help was a tremendous godsend.

    Lastly, I always tell my children that every day is not “candy canes and rainbows,” (well, unless you’re Kelly…he-hee) it’s just as important to have tools to deal effectively with bad days as it is to enjoy the beauty of good days. There’s a solution for every problem and there’s a good day just over the horizon. After years of saying it, I’m actually living up to my own advice to some extent, a work in progress.

    I hope this was somewhat helpful. Sending blessings your way, I’ll keep you in my prayers. xo

          thanks Q but Our anniversary was Sept 11. WSL and I just talked about how people can make judgements on the day you chose to get married. 🙂

    Has season 1&2 of every one of the housewives.I believe it is a target exclusive.
    I want to review how chubby ill was. I want to see Ape woman b4 she got boobs or had a forehead wax.

  88. Wall St Lady says:

    Scprpoisue r u lurking or did u just leave ? Miss u !

    I want to throw a birthday party for u next week; Quincy has agreed to bake a cake.I can’t throw a party if u ain’t here !

  89. housewifeaddict says:

    I guess Caroline is fighting back

    Of course we know 2 of the 3 are true – maybe embellished a little but rooted in the truth. I don’t know about Caroline’s father spending time in jail – anyone know about that?

    • quincyil says:

      “The best defense is a good offense.” Danielle is playing hard ball with the Manzos

    • Adgirl says:

      I wouldn’t be surprised if he had been to jail. He was murdered in a gangster dispute.

    • Zipit Zarin says:

      I loved this part

      “Weirdly, when a reporter called Manzo to follow-up on the claim, she wouldn’t speak on the record. Said she didn’t want to turn it into a big public bruhaha.


      tee hee

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      It seems like Danielle makes a comment. Everybody denies it. Caroline froths at the mouth. Several months pass. lo and behold…Danielle’s right and was telling the truth all along.

      ie: Joe hanging out with strippers instead of going home with Teresa the night of the DUI. At the time I thought Danielle was being snarky. Like, it’s bad enough, why throw a bs story into the mix? So, not bs after all.

      • Zipit Zarin says:

        And when she said “Dina’s not married”…well, everyone has been saying the marriage is a sham and he’s never there, yadda yadda. Sorta true too.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          The nephew comment too. All along she’s said little side comments and voila! coming true…

  90. Sarah says:

    My favorite part was when Lisa laughed at how Russel looked nothing like he had been described. I know it was mean, but after being told he was some hot macho Texan, I’d probably find it rather silly too.

  91. Sarah says:

    Oh I also loved when Kim and Lisa were sitting by the pool and in comes Camille – Lisa said something along the lines of “watch this, i’m sure it’ll be good” referring to what she’d be wearing and sure enough, Camille’s outfit left little to the imagination lol

  92. housewifeaddict says:

    On the topic of DC housewives, has everyone seen this blog:


    Scroll down, and there is a little insight into why Erika hates Kat so much – perhaps. Looks like Erika was rumored to also be a housewife:

    “This world is so small. Michaele is the center of attention as a supposed cast member for Bravo TV’s most highly anticipated new show, The Real Housewives of DC. My friend Lynda Erkiletian is also rumored to be one of the “Housewives”, along with Mary Amons, Stacie Turner and Stacie’s best friend Erica”

    This is a pretty sad blog about someone who payed the price for the Salamis.

  93. housewifeaddict says:

    Oh – Teresa is threatening to walk over this? I sure hope she does LOL


  94. housewifeaddict says:

    Old news, but I hadn’t seen it before. Jacqueline is looking a little cheap in that satin dress – I love the bit of her gut hanging out – snark.


    • Zipit Zarin says:

      Are those fake boobs? I do not get why women want such gi-normous ones! Or why men want them to. I’d be gettin a reduction if those were mine. sheesh

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        um… her boobs are my size. Naturally. I won’t get a reduction because they’re just right. Everyone else is too small. lol

        • Zipit Zarin says:

          If they’re natural and you love it that’s one thing…

          <-removing foot from mouth 😀

          • quincyil says:

            With diet and exercise, mine got a lot smaller. It seems I had a lot of fat in those breasts.

            I saw a woman with fake breasts in Taho at the Casino. They were obviously fake. I think the trick is to make them look real while fake.

          • OneMoreInBoston says:

            No worries- just made me laugh a little…believe it or not, God DOES make big ones too!

            Jac and I have almost the exact same body type, but I think I’m taller. Whenever people comment about her body I always wonder if that’s what people say about ME behind my back. LOL

            • Zipit Zarin says:

              They better not! I’ll flip a table at them! lol

            • housewifeaddict says:

              I think Jac dresses tacky but not overly sleazy, but if hubby’s company was in bankruptcy, I respect her trying her best not to waste $$ on designer clothing. She was also fighting baby pounds last year – and if she was nursing (or pregnant) in the photo – her tata’s would be enormous – like Bethenny’s were last year LOL

            • boston02127 says:

              @OneMoreInBoston–Jac has a good figure. It’s her crooked face that distracts from it.

              • OneMoreInBoston says:

                Too bad I can’t lose the baby weight either…OMG I FORGOT to have the baby!
                That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

      • housewifeaddict says:

        She talked about thinking they were too big on season one I think – when everyone was giving Teresa advice not to go too big. Might have been Dina though – Tommy like big boobs LOL

        • housewifeaddict says:

          I meant that to be confirmation that she talked about them being implants AND too big on the show – but that might have been Dina.

          • OneMoreInBoston says:

            I think it was Dina. I remember her going on ad nauseum with Andy about her implants on the first reunion show. That they weren’t ladylike or something, since after all ,she IS a mother.

            I thought it was a sad ploy to get Andy to look at her cleavaladge- but whatevs.

            • Zipit Zarin says:

              Ok, I have a question about that. Andy does seem infatuated with boobage. He’s gay so why would he be? I don’t get it.

              • housewifeaddict says:

                I was wondering that too – like why did he bring up Janet Jackson at age 12 on Good Times getting her boobs bound. (I didn’t realize she was Penny though – so that was interesting).

              • OneMoreInBoston says:

                I have gay male friends that insist that all gay men have a thing for boobs.
                Seems like a sweeping generalization…and I’m sure there are men, both gay and straight, that could care less- but Our Andy seems to be a tad fixated on the boobalage of it all.

              • OneMoreInBoston says:

                That was the cause of the big rift between Janet Jackson and her father. that he thought she was so phenomenal as an actress in good times that he wanted her to focus on that, but she wanted to make an album.

                So she hooked up with record producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis (remember those guys!) and made her album Control in 1986.

                Get it? because she was in “Control” not her dad.

              • boston02127 says:

                A lot of gay guys like boobs.

              • iwannabeanarchy says:

                All my gay friends are always obsessed with big boobs too. One of my gay friends said that gay guys like to hang around women that are ultra feminine and womanly.

  95. TLM says:

    Ok, tonight I’ve had a refrigerator that leaked all over my kitchen floor, followed by a vinaigrette I made getting knocked over and spilling all over my cabinets, counter, dishwasher and floor, so I’m taking a break from the kitchen to think about something else for a while.

    The Real Housewives of BH kinda reminds me of the movie Your Friends and Neighbors, a very biting look at what it means to be married in suburbia and miserable. Does anyone really believe Taylor’s owner — I mean husband — Russell left Vegas for *business*? Or do we think he went to see a mistress? I think Taylor’s behavior is going to make her husband’s leaving her a self-fulfilling prophecy. She lets him drag her away from the party, I assume, because he feels like having sex. By going along with it she’s acting like a prostitute. I believe that if she didn’t act so submissive he wouldn’t feel entitled to do what he does. If he asked how my “little company” was doing, I would ask how his “little company” was doing without missing a beat. Instead, she swallows the indignity and lets him continue.

    That said, Taylor needs to get rid of her duck lips. They make her face look downright bizarre. She looks like she might be attractive if she didn’t have them, but they are so distracting I can’t even picture her without them. The weirdness was compounded during the strange cotton-candy eating scene. I couldn’t decide what creeped me out more, Taylor’s deep-throating the cotton candy or her giant Silly Putty-like lips.

    Why did Taylor bring a leather Hermes Birkin bag poolside?? Who does that? They cost thousands and aren’t meant to be beach bags.

    Speaking of weird things to wear to a pool, what about 7″ spike heels? I loathe the word “cougar,” but Camille embodies it so completely, it seems as if the word was invented for her. She just behaves like a sad woman who is completely desperate for attention and has no class. If people blame her husband for dumping her for a younger woman, how was he supposed to feel when she was throwing herself at every attractive male under the age of 50? And what about her tennis “partner”? Give me an effing break. Camille reminds me of that faux Marilyn Monroe character Kristen Wiig plays so well on SNL, where all the guys are initially taken in by her but ultimately disgusted by her. (See: http://raechalleone.com/2010/01/11/why-i-love-kristen-wiig/)

    Camille has Crohn’s Disease, which I know because I heard Kelsey G speak about it years ago in an interview, but I don’t think it’s widely known. In typical Bravo fashion, I predict they are going to keep showing her sleazy side and then suddenly make the story shift by revealing her treatments for Crohn’s and how much she suffers from that. Then they’ll drop the Kelsey divorce bomb, and Camille will at least become a sympathetic character. She had her kids by surrogate supposedly because of the Crohn’s, and I suspect she’ll say that’s the reason for the 4 nannies. Crohn’s is a serious disease, but with the way this woman acts, it’s kind of hard to believe she’s incapable of child care, or that she couldn’t just have one nanny to help. When she isn’t doing an impression of a stripper dance, she’s leaping around on a tennis court or rubbing herself all over Kelsey’s cute friend, or pretending to be a producer at her husband’s company. She is hardly an invalid.

    Adrienne looks like a tranny to me. Truly every time I look at her, I think of La Cage Aux Folles. I wonder if national exposure will start to put pressure on these women to cool it with the surgical procedures. They’re in some kind of weird bubble where they actually think they look good, and I think maybe they need voices of reason from outside the bubble to tell them it’s hideous and unfashionable. Hey, it got the OC housewives to stop all wearing french manicured acrylics that went out of style 13 years ago, so anything’s possible.

    I really admire women like Kyle who recognize they look great without floatation devices placed in their chest cavity. Same with Gretchen, whatever else people think of her. It seems as thought Kyle has the best marriage and there is genuine affection there, however, I was surprised when she called her husband over by saying, “Money? I mean honey? Come here.” Maybe it’s not so bad since Kyle does have some of her own money and can earn money on her own, but clearly her husband’s income is supporting their lifestyle. It does seem like there is tension brewing over Kyle’s spending, and I wonder if there will be further arguments between her and Mauricio. Who are we kidding, of course there will. Or if not that, there will be an argument between the others. This is the Real Housewives, after all. 😉

    • housewifeaddict says:

      I thought Camille had IBS not Chrones, but I suppose many of the symptoms are the same. It’s just hard to feel sorry for her right now – she’s just so self-absorbed. And why would she vacation in Hawaii instead of going to NY to see her husband when the kids are on break? No wonder she was defensive. Still – it’s got to be awful – even if you’re rich – to have someone dump you after 14 years without trying to work it out. I suppose she and the Countless can go to therapy together. I sure hope she didn’t stay in LA to do the show – seems like she could have flown back and forth. And I’m sure she could have hired tutors for the kids for the year. I would think being married to an actor you have to know that you’ll either be apart or be tagging along wherever they need to work.

    • Zipit Zarin says:

      Sorry about your mishaps but glad you posted lol. “Flotation devices” ZACTLY
      Agree, Gretchen looks fab without them. Normal chestal areas must be on the endangered list in California. Or the coasts. Or on tv. Anyway, I’m sick of looking at them. Just gross.

    • Sarah says:

      Is it possible to get the lips reduced? If so, I would also recommend Taylor do that.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        Lisa Rinna did.

      • TLM says:

        Basically all they have to do for the lips to reduce is to leave them alone and stop getting collagen injections. Collagen is absorbed by the body and has to be reinjected every so often or the tissues return to their normal shape. Samewith botox — if it isn’t repeated, it eventually wears off in a few months.

  97. TLM says:

    Will someone please tell the Jerseylicious girl Alexa that she is not sophisticated in any way?? This girl has breasts hanging out that are so flabby they look like they belong to a 60-year old. She just makes herself look shorter and fatter with her clothing. And someone needs to tell the self-titled “glam fairy” what a smoky eye is. It is not pearlized blue eyeshadow applied up to the eyebrows. What is it with these girls that frosted blue is the only color they have? Was that color on sale or something? No matter who they make up, or which one of them it is, or what skin tone they have, everyone has light pink lipstick and frosted blue eyeshadow. And they call themselves artists??!!?? I just want to know what these people are getting paid to do this crap. The women at the “glaminar” each looked so much better and more sophisticated than any of the Jerseylicious crew. They must have laughed their asses off after the Jersey girls left. Tracy looks like she has a dead animal on her head that smells, and she has the shadow of a moustache that should be lasered off. Even Denise Richards finally did that. Alexa has overly processed hostage hair , and Olivia’s streaks in the front are just bizarre.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      Thank you to the baby jesus!

      What is up with that crappy looking eyeshadow? It’s straight up pink frost on RHOA and it’s blue frost on Jersey.

      Would you ever go to a makeup artist who called herself a “glam fairy”?
      Oh yeah she’s gonna make me look appropriate for work.

      If I worked on the corner.

    • boston02127 says:

      LOL — I thought it was just me! She’s a freak. Her boobs are like 2 beach balls. She wears those 9 inch wide belts that push them up to her neck. And her hair! Hay hair. She acts so worldly and when she went to Texas she asked if airplanes have bathrooms! I’ve never flown anywhere but I think that was a given that they do.

    • boston02127 says:

      And Tracy’s blue contacts….Scary!!!

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        You know what’s interesting., my FAVORITE makeup when I was a make up artist was on an African American woman. Maybe because the look is so different than mine, my fingers literally would itch to grab some brushes and go to town.

        So IMO- Nene’s makeup is flawless. But who on God’s green Earth is doing Fakedra’s makeup? Their brushes need to be confiscated, and they need to be sent back to school.

        • Zipit Zarin says:

          I didn’t know if I could mention her lip gloss …I can’t stop looking at her lips! I’d diminish their size not draw attention to them. And agree on Nene’s eye make-up. It’s gorszhwah!

        • TLM says:

          I agree about NeNe’s makeup…even though the colors are bold, it works because of her very deep skin tone. I actually liked the deep violet eyeshadow on her recently, which I would not have ordinarily thought would work.

          I am not a fan of white or off-white frosted shadow, especially used all over the lid. Camille uses it and I think it totally washes her out. Bethenny used to use it in Season 1 of RHONYC and I was so happy this last year that she finally went to brown and deeper shades. It really was not flattering.

        • TLM says:

          I think Jeannie Mai does a good tutorial here on smoky eyes, although I think her nails here are hideous. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vuCxsdEM9s

          Really, you don’t have to have so many different sections of color, just use a deep shade for the lid and a lighter one for the brow and make sure it’s well blended and not too heavily applied. This is why I don’t understand Jerseylicious’ label of “smoky.” Smoky means looking like smoke, ie deep and muted colors. Frosted light blue is not a deep or muted color.

          Dark smudgy eyes are nothing new. In the 80s I think it was was called a smudgy eye, and Kohl pencils were all the rage to get the deep color. I also disagree with putting foundation powder on after mascara. The mascara should always go on last, otherwise the powder falls on the lashes and defeats the mascara.

    • iwannabeanarchy says:

      I totally agree!! The thing is I think Olivia is actually really pretty. I feel like all the bronzer, tanning, and over the top makeup (and smoky blue eyeshadow) really takes away from her beauty.

      • TLM says:

        That is the same thing I thought about Olivia and the others…the rare times they are without makeup, they look so much better. I am not anti-makeup by any means, but they have no idea how to select colors or apply it properly. And to the Texas bride, people should be telling you you look beautiful, not “complimenting you on your makeup.” Gail and Christie seem to look normal – why don’t they insist on the makeup and hair being toned way down, or else these girls can go work elsewhere? I would never go to a salon with stylists who look like they do.

    Re: Installing floatation devices onto one’s chest.

    Every woman I have ever known who was naturally over-endowed wanted them reduced. Every one.

    So it’s very strange how so many women get implants that are gigantic and frequently incorrectly placed on their bodies. Don’t they have a friend or a sister that will take them aside and say STOP THE MADNESS.

    • Zipit Zarin says:

      “More than a handful’s a waste anyway.” …some guy I knew 😀

    • TLM says:

      Always wanted A cups like my Mom had, but I had C’s that became DD’s after weight gain. I am grateful that I have always been proportional, but would prefer to be smaller. I just don’t get the desire to look like a stripper/cartoon woman in Heavy Metal magazine and make oneself be OUT of proportion. There is nothing fashionable about giant fake breasts. Do you see models with them? No, and men seem to like models as well. Hopefully times are changing. Even Pam Anderson has had her implants removed. I have no issue with a woman who is truly flat-chested getting a natural-size implant or an implant to correct breasts that are lopsided, where a mastectomy was performed, etc.
