I Hate Jill Zarin Real Housewives of Atlanta

I Hate Jill Zarin      Real Housewives of Atlanta              Nov 15, 2010

The show opens with Sheree showing off her new car, an Aston Martin, the very same vehicle that was repossessed just weeks ago in real-time.  Sheree tweeted “don’t worry, I’ll get another one”.   Rumor has it that her attorney had the vehicle repossessed due to her failure to pay her legal bill to him.  There has to be more to that
story because unless Sheree paid for it outright and had no lien on the car, the bank who holds the paper on the car would be the only people who could repossess it.  We’ll get back to Sheree.

Kim escorts her family into the house to show them her new gaudy office decorated with photographs of herself.  The always classy Kim tells viewers that if we don’t like it, we can “eat shit and die”.
Is this woman in the 8th grade?  That office was tacky!  She also had her youngest daughter, Arianna’s room re-decorated and updated to reflect the pre-teen’s change from childhood, updating it for an older girl.

Arianna was properly pleased and thanked her mom with a big hug and even tears.  Kim’s older daughter Brielle was none-to-pleased that her little sister got a completely new room and she was stuck with her huge 2,000 square foot entire upstairs floor bedroom and refuses to be happy for her little sister. She pouts on the bed and won’t even hug Arianna.  Kim’s reaction, “I guess I have to do Brielle’s room too!”  What a great mom!  Reward bad behavior with a complete bedroom redo, Kim informs us that she spent $60,000 on this child’s bedroom.  We should introduce Kim to Taylor of Beverly Hills and they can spend $60,000 foolishly together!  Kim tweeted during the episode, here are her thoughts:

@KimZolciak:  It is NOT scripted however yes I do have to spend time with the ladies, most of which I would rather not

@KimZolciak:   whenever Kandi and I have a problem we talk and get things straight 🙂

@KimZolciak:  Nene and I have known each other for years, we always have a fun time together that girl makes me ROTFLMBO

@KimZolciak:  I will always have a soft spot for Nene, as for Kandi we have a real friendship.

@KimZolciak:  That is really it, we all talk smack abt each other & it gets caddy…What I do know is I am very thankful 4 Dancing w/Atl Stars 😉

@KimZolciak:  Kandi and I did NOT have a problem to my knowledge, I found out while watching the show how she felt just like you all have

@KimZolciak:  I do not speak to any of the girls, I do like Phaedra off camera, she is been very sweet to me.

@KimZolciak:  Eat shit and Die? Who did I say that to?

To answer Kim’s last question, that would be us, the viewers, you know those “Fans” you’re always talking about.  This is also another great opportunity to mention what a really bad idea it is to allow your teenage daughter to be on Twitter.  Brielle was forced to fight the good fight as fans of the show tweeted to her about her poor behavior while Mom was tweeting with a radio show telling people to leave her daughter alone.  Wouldn’t it just be a whole lot easier to get the kid off of Twitter completely?

Thank you Bravo for limiting Kim Zolciak’s on screen time
once again.  NeNe arrives at Cynthia’s house and is greeted by Cynthia’s sister as the two ladies have been recruited by Cynthia’s fiancé…er boyfriend, Peter to plan and organize the proposal of marriage.  The ladies decorate with tea lights and rose pedals throughout the living room as Peter and Cynthia arrive for the big
moment.  Now I thought as they were planning it all that they would be sneaking out the back door and leaving the happy couple alone for the big moment.  Instead, Peter had an audience of Cynthia’s family and friends as he asked Cynthia to marry him.  Was he afraid she would have said no if they had been alone?  I am.

Cynthia takes her mother and sister along to look at wedding gowns, while she has no intention of buying one off the rack, she needs to get ideas to give to her stylist.  I really like Cynthia but her comment as she’s trying on dresses was a bit too much, she said, “I’m a model so I don’t know if these dresses are really pretty or if I’m just making them look pretty.”  That comment wasn’t necessary.

Seemingly not the best time to have a mother / daughter heart to heart conversation, right there in the bridal salon Cynthia is getting her mother to open up a little bit about Cynthia’s childhood and the men in her life.  It seems it wasn’t a Norman Rockwell painting as we learn that Cynthia’s step-father was an alcoholic and was abusive, both ladies tear up as they discuss it as mom is clearly uncomfortable with the subject.

Kandi is rarely shown outside of the recording studio these days and tonight is no different, Lawrence the hair stylist comes in to record some music and even the producers agree, he has a great voice.  Lawrence isn’t the focus here, however, we hear more about Kim Zolciak and the problems that Kandi is having getting Kim to take her music seriously.  I don’t know why Kandi is fixated on Kim taking this singing thing seriously, none of us take it seriously.  With a voice like Kim’s why bother?  She isn’t going to improve.  Vocal lessons can fine tune a beautiful voice and make it better, you can train and teach notes and pitches to someone who already has a gift, Kim is a useless waste of everyone’s time!

Phaedra Parks really is a cartoon character, she cannot be a real woman.  Some of the comments she makes and the faces she pulls off have got to be her attempts at acting.  I think when she was recruited for Real Housewives, she misunderstood what was supposed to go down.  Watching her prepare to leave town to have
labor induced was a circus.  She clearly has no idea what to expect, she has a “friend who has 3 lovely children” come by to help, then later says, “I’m glad I hired …”.  She paid this woman to help her prepare to go to the hospital, that is a little bit sad that she really doesn’t have a friend who would do it just out of friendship.  And where on earth is Apollo?  We haven’t seen this man in weeks, is he back in jail or what?  Where is this man?  He’s not at her baby shower, ok I get that, but we know he doesn’t work so where is he as his wife prepares to pack her bags to give birth?

I’ve already covered this woman’s lies about her due date, I know you don’t want to hear it again.  She’s clearly covering for her shotgun wedding and she’s assuming that anyone really gives a damn that she was pregnant at her wedding.  Phaedra, no one cares!

Tonight’s star of the show is clearly Sheree Whitfield, after taking delivery of her Aston Martin we learn that she is going to be performing a Rumba for Charity at the event, Dancing With The Stars of Atlanta.  When the judge is critiquing her practice session Sheree explains in her talking head interview that she’s a busy lady and couldn’t possibly practice anymore.  After all folks, Sheree is a mom and an Actress?  Bravo has such a great sense of humor because immediately after Sheree tells us that she’s an actress, she also says, “they didn’t tell me I had to wear my dress at the dress rehearsal.”   Possibly they thought that the words, “DRESS Rehearsal” would have given her the first clue being that she’s an actress and all.

Sheree’s big number was actually pretty good, I thought she did well considering as NeNe noted, “I’ve never even seen her snap her fingers”.  I think NeNe was trying to tell us that Sheree has no rhythm , and again Bravo brings the funny as they show the other
ladies talking head interviews while Sheree performs her dance.  Kandi yawns, Kim simply rolls her eyes and NeNe just laughs, no words are necessary but they had me cracking up!  The editors clearly have a great sense of humor, unfortunately it is at Sheree’s expense as she’s this season’s joke.  Between the editors showing the Aston Martin purchase just days after reports confirm it had been repossessed and the dancing fiasco, Sheree is not being painted in the best light.  Add to that next week when she learns that her Doctor boyfriend is a fraud and Sheree is going to be livid. You can watch the preview as NeNe recognizes the fake doc on Bravotv.com.

It is nice to see Lisa Wu Hartwell and her husband making another cameo.

Sheree tells viewers that her charity goal was $5,000 and she was just about $400 short of that goal, hoping that her Real  Housewives cast mates would give at least a couple of hundred each, she should have no trouble getting there.

Cut to the table and the ladies are preparing their donation envelopes, NeNe throws out two dollar amounts, $50 and $20, not exactly what would be expected at an event that is serving a full meal and cocktails.  NeNe settles on $20 and when Kandi starts to
question that amount, NeNe gives Kandi a look that says, “don’t you dare make a fool of me by giving more” and even as Kandi is trying to sneak a few more dollars into the envelope, NeNe warns her not to even try it!

Sheree explains that she paid $1,500 for a table for her fellow housewives and their men so she was expecting a decent donation.  It was surprising that NeNe and her husband having a full meal and drinks at a charity event, felt that $20 was appropriate, not only that but insisting that the other ladies give only the same amount.  Kandi explains that she fully expected to donate substantially more and that she would typically expect to give at least $500 at an event like this.

As this event was Dancing With The Stars of Atlanta, one of the other “stars” happened to be Atlanta Falcons football player Kroy
Biermann.  No doubt the star of the evening, he took the silver mirror ball home and an added bonus of gold digger.  Kim goes backstage and fawns over the guy even asking to see his ass up close.  Her classless flirting works on the big dope and he exchanges phone numbers with the wig wearing, chain-smoking, gold digging most famous mistress in Atlanta.
Kim asks viewers, “Duh? Would YOU call me?”  I don’t think I need to answer that question but the big dumb football player calls her and apparently they are still dating to this day as Kim explains he was watching this episode right along with her.   Oh I pity the big dumb ass football player.  Does he think that Kim would be dating his cute butt if he didn’t have money?

NeNe also tweeted during last night’s episode, either The Donald gave her the night off or she’s already been eliminated from Celebrity Apprentice, here are a few of her thoughts:

A FAN:   I would actually LOOOVE 2 c @NeNeLeakes on “Dancing With The Stars

@NeNeLeakes:  U just might  (Lynn: is she pulling a Teresa?)

@NeNeLeakes:  U tweetie pies gotta start having viewing parties & invite me & my girls over!

@NeNeLeakes:  Ok tweetie pies! Put the kids 2 bed & get ready 2 enjoy another new episode of the ATL Housewives tonite @ 10!

A FAN: U MURDERED that black dress

@NeNeLeakes  I hate 2 say it out loud but I sure did

    I think companies must be giving these women their products for placement advertising. That was a commercial for an Aston Martin. No way Sheree bought that.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Well it did get repossessed. LOL

      • icantstandthetoxicity says:

        When will these “Housewives” learn to stop living above their means? *shakes head*

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          I had to LOL when she was talking about not wanting to downsize- She-man, I guess the repoman helped you with that struggle.

    • Savannah111 says:

      Hello everyone, I’ve got a lot of posts to catch up on.

      I’ve been really busy lately I gave my DIL a baby shower yesterday, mine was of the normal kind not like Fakedra’s in any way shape or form.. Oh the cute cute thinks she got yesterday too adorable. This is my first and I’m so excited I can’t wait and I won;t have to for very much longer she’s due Dec 23rd..

      I know this is Atlanta’s blog but I have a comment about the Beverly Hills women. The argument that went on between Camille and Kyle, you know when ever Kyle wanted to clear the air they talked and everything seemed fine they decided to get Dinner and they went to freshen up, Camille stayed in Taylor’s suite 20 minutes later when they all got together again for Dinner and it was like the air couldn’t have been more clouded. Of course its a no brainer that something happened within 20 minutes that caused Camille to bring it up. In Taylors blog she indicated that she may have been the one that caused Camille to once again get heated about it. But did Taylor just realize this and all of the sudden saying oops my bad, did she ever come forward while all the crap was being argued about. She had to have started running her mouth and I believe she played a big part in keeping the drama stirred up, I dont like Taylor I dont think she is a trustworthy person.

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        Such an exciting time, I wonder if your grandchild will be a Christmas baby? I hope you share pictures with us when the blessed child comes 🙂

  2. housewifeaddict says:

    NeNe did murder that black dress. Wow she looked great! And she’s still great in her one liners. Glad to see NeNe likes Peter so much. I’m not getting the impression Cynthia is actually in love with the guy, more in love with a storyline, and maybe finally getting married. She was more obsessed with how she looked during the proposal (wow she really likes her fake lashes) than the actual proposal. And yes – how weird is it that he did it both on-camera (I suppose for the story line), and involved NeNe (again for the story line no doubt) and her other friends. And then all this “I’m engaged” business. Cynthia – you’ve been engaged quite a few times before – what’s new?

    How priceless was it when her sister leaned over to her mom and whispered “Do you think she’ll go through with it this time?” And mom just shrugged her shoulders.

    • Cheri says:

      For some reason I just don’t like Peter

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        Neither do I. He seems very controlling.

      • error404 says:

        1. We don’t know them, but the physical appearance thing is off putting. There is something weird about watching the georgous model squirm about marrying the old geezer with the grey wiskers and the half dozen kids. Especially when we find out her baby daddy is so hot.
        2. He’s so unromantic, it’s no wonder she’s unsure. Not only was the proposal a bad idea no woman would like, but he even admitted he knew she’s hate it but did it anyway for selfish reasons. And this was on top of the whole turning 50 deadline ultimatum. Ugh. Run Cyn run!

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          I have noticed when Cynthia is interacting with men, whether it’s Peter or the baby’s father (do remember that Madonna video- and all the controversy it caused at the time?) she seems very unsure of herself and defers to their opinion. Almost like she doesn’t trust her own. Odd because she is usually quite confident.

          • emily says:

            perhaps it relates back to issues with her father and step-father.

            I was too young to remember the Madonna Like a Prayer controversy but I watched it on youtube and saw Leon.

            Was he part of the controversy??

            • TrueLifeDiva the troll slayer says:

              I’m not sure how the video is edited now-a-days but when it debuted, it aired nationally as a Pepsi commercial and featured Madonna dancing in front of a burning cross. Pepsi never saw the footage before it aired and the public outcry caused them to lose a lot of money. For me it was controversial not only because of the burning crosses but the scenes of her scantily clad in church making out with Jesus (Leon) in between the pews. The choir and happy ending to the storyline did not erase the other offensive images. That video marks the beginning of my dislike of Madonna. Leon was just a little known actor at the time, he was not in the burning cross scenes. He may not have known what the whole video was going to be about.

              • OneMoreInBoston says:

                Leon was a statue in a church, who came to life. I didn’t think he was supposed to represent Jesus I thought he was supposed to be a saint.

                A saint who just so happened to drink diet Pepsi and fornicated with Madonna on the steps to the altar.

                Alrighty then

                • error404 says:

                  *sigh*
                  the “Story” of the video was of a black man who was persecuted and jailed for loving a white woman.

                  Catholics then got their panties all in a knot over it, and somehow the positive message of anti-acism got lost in a violent media storm of “how dare a catholic use catholic images in a video!”

                  whatever.

                  • error404 says:

                    p.s Pepsi turned the video into a commercial as they always do. Somehow, Britney Spears cock-teasing her way thru catholic school was perfectly fine, but Madonna showing a burning cross was unacceptable. Again, I say “whatever”

          • winatlife says:

            I think models are some of the most insecure among us. I have never known a supermodel, but Ive met many Chicago runway and catalog models who compared themselves to other women so much that they were debilitated in terms of making decisions about showing up for a shoot, much less marriage.

        • Snarkella says:

          I think Cynthia is unsure about getting married because the guy she is marrying is a dud. You are right error4040, the guy even admitted he proposed to her in a way he knew she’d hate. WTF? Note to Cynthia, when you find the right guy you will no longer be unsure. Until you find that guy, remain single. Don’t marry someone just for the sake of it. And please get rid of Mr. Creepy. Ugh.

      • winatlife says:

        I have not posted again in a while, but I had to respond to this message. I am not crazy about Peter either for some reason. There is something kikilet about his demeanor. He seems to want the spotlight. I was wary before, but now that we know his club is a goner, I think he wanted to use the show to bring it back to life. Too bad the highlight of the show in his club was the NeNe Dwight confrontation.

        He would look much better without that white beard, too.

        • Snarkella says:

          I agree. She seems like a reasonably nice lady and very pretty too. What’s she doing with that guy? He does not seem like a joy to be around.

  3. MickeyMouth says:

    Can’t stay long. In fact I’m not even here, lol. Just wanted to say another great blog Lynn and to subscribe so I can catch up in email later 🙂

    Have a good day all!

    • Snarkella says:

      Yes, thank you Lynn for another great blog. Please forgive my bad manners. I read your blog regularly, lurk for ages, rarely post, and when I do I usually forget to even acknowledge you. Every now and then I do try to remember to thank you for all the hard work you put in for our entertainment and enjoyment! Love you Lynn!

    I posted this on the previous blog right before this blog was posted. Teresa Giudice’s Attorney Says Denying Their Bankruptcy ‘Would Destroy This Family’
    *************************************************************************

    Attorney James Kridel has his work cut out for him in trying to convince the bankruptcy court to grant the petition filed by his clients, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe.

    As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Roberta DeAngelis, the attorney in the U.S. Trustees Office who evaluated the Giudice filing, recommended that the court not grant their Chapter 7 petition.

    She alleged that the couple had fraudulently tried to hide assets.

    “I am going to be sending a letter to the US Trustees Office because I would like to resolve with them their issue rather than have to try it,” attorney Kridel told RadarOnline.com.

    “I’m not doing it out of desperation; I’m doing it in their [debtors and US Trustees] best interest. That’s the next step. But ultimately the ball is in their court.”

    Kridel said he is going to try to convince the Trustee Office that they’d lose in a trial and that his clients “have been punished enough”.

    “Instead of just looking at it as ‘Joe Giudice,’ it is a family and to deny a discharge in this case would destroy this family. Some of the family members are clearly not responsible for anything that occurred here.”

    The Giudices’ attorney also argues that Joe didn’t intentionally omit assets from the petition.

    Kridel said, ‘If you have a bank account that has zero in it, but you didn’t disclose it because you didn’t realize it was open, I don’t believe that to be a really egregious offense. The omissions made would not change the outcome of the case. Their discovery would not increase the value of the estate.

    “To deny a discharge would be a very severe consequence and I don’t think it’s deserving.”

    Whatever the court’s decision, the Giudices will still suffer, their legal rep claimed.

    “They’re going to owe a significant amount of money, including any IRS debt,” he said. “Other than the personal property in the house they don’t really have any assets so they are going to start over again.

    “If they don’t get a fresh start [with a discharge] it’s going to be almost impossible to get back up on their feet.”

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      Let’s see here. So Teresa was punished by spending 60K on draperies for her house? Oh OK, makes complete sense to me.
      Not.

    • Golden Girl says:

      You do the crime, you do the time.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      So the families that suffered because the Guidices swindled them don’t matter? Please they wanted their fresh start with a substantial stash of assets too! It doesn’t work that way. And as for the IRS debt – bring it on!

      • Need a Hobby says:

        They’re not on TV so tough luck for them, I guess.

        Interesting that IRS debt is mentioned…

        Thanks for posting the article, ican’tstand

      • vilzvet says:

        Exactly! Of course we know the children are innocent bystanders in this (except for the times they demanded every piece of clothing in the stores on their shopping trips) but Joe and Teresa weren’t. I hope they end up with nothing but the hair on their backs.

        • Amber...Real Wife says:

          I thought i’d feel sympathy for the kids, but after seeing them rampage through stores and speak horribly to movers, I felt little of it.
          I think these girls need to LEARN manners, real family values and humilty. Their misplaced gumba/guidettes in training elitist mentality, taught by their crazy simian mother, has tainted these children in their formative years.
          Forget a slice of humble pie, these gorillas in the midst need the whole darn pie factory.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      I can’t get over the audacity of these people.

      This is the same lawyer to said even though it looked bad, it was completely legal for her to spend 60k on furniture that would be essentially be good enough for their house because Sears home furnishings don’t compliment granite , onyx and marble nicely a swell as faux renascence does.

      And what a terrible tragedy it would be for these crooks to to actually have to PAY for the debt they racked up.

      It’s not the Gorilla’s fault yet they filled jointly- and Teresa also omitted business holdings and funds from the disclosure. The 4 kids shouldn’t have to suffer by having to get their cloths at Walmart when they are used to designer duds- it would destroy their fragile egos-even the one year old.

      The US trustees despite having a slam dunk aren’t going to win- cause that would really suck.

      LOL

      • ArizonaMagpie says:

        I totally agree that it would be awful if their BK is allowed. Perhaps someone will start a blog on “Guidice’s to Jail” or some such and Lynn could mention it on her pod cast. Then maybe it could get some press coverage. And then maybe the judge hears about it and follows the old adage “Let justice be seen to be done.” That’s the principle that caused Paris Hilton to serve jail time a few years ago.

        Just a happy thought lol.

        • ArizonaMagpie says:

          The theory being that these are public people and they must be held to a tough standard as the public should not see them get away with defrauding the court.

  5. error404 says:

    These shows are really about and S&M relationship, as Bravo clearly likes to make fools out of the women, who are all too happy to oblige with damning footage. I loved how they kept making fun of no one being able to figure out how to open the doors of Sheree’s new bling-mobile, Sheree pulling a Countess worthy hissy over her name being mispronounced during her intro, etc…

    They also seem to be about what I can only imagine is a hot debate in the female world: make your own money or be controlled by a rich man? Funny I’ve lived all my life around women and none of them seem so obsessed with finding a penis with a payroll. Nor were any of them abused and stuck with it because they can’t fend for themselves. It boggles my mind how often the “kept woman” vs. “free agent” debate come sup on these shows, but then again, I’m usually out of the loop.

    All I can say about Cynthia is: 1. I think she was joking about the dress shopping/super model bit. 2. I think she fixated on the false lashes because she was so ambushed. I’ll never understand how any guy can come to the conclusion that a public proposal is a good idea. 3. If there a good reason for anyone to marry Peter, it’s yet to be shown on my TV screen. He kinda annoys me.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      yes, yes, and yes.

      Although sometimes I will have very young members of my staff tell me that they don’t need to learn a proper technique or skill set because they are going to find a rich man and get married and will be able to buy and sell me in a few short years.

      After I’m through wiping the tears of laughter away, I tell them not to quit their day job until they have the ring on their finger. It usually works.

      So there is a fairytale out there that Price Charming will sweep Cinderella up on his horse and ride off into the sunset. A few years in the real world and that get fixed fast.

      And yes, I’ve also had girls that have been in abusive relationships come to work with black eyes, and one time a broken arm. No matter how much help you try to give there truly is a “battered woman syndrome” that enmeshes them in a symbiotic relationship with their abuser. So that does exist as well.

      But I agree, these are the exceptions and certainly not the rule.

      • Adgirl says:

        Haha. Your employees shouldn’t quit their day job until he throws a few $20 onto the nightstand.

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          Since I am already married- and deeply committed to my DH, I don’t dream of a man rescuing me from working middle class to elite rich. I dream of winning the lottery. 🙂

          Some of these broads kill me. Sheree better start playing scratch tickets because no man is going ‘rescue’ her.

  6. HD says:

    Another great blog. I watch the show while I am on facebook and the comments are HILARIOUS on the Real Housewife page. If you get a chance join their fan page because I cry laughing every Sunday.

    I thought Sheree’s dancing was hilarious. When she said, “if they wanted me to bring my dress to dress rehearsal they should have told me,” I thought I would die! Then she said, “I am an actress”. Really? An actress? LOL!

    Phaedra-gets dumber every show!

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      missed you.

      What did you think about Cynthia’s scene at the bridal shop with her mom? felt a little awkward to me. Her mother has a beautiful smile.

      • HD says:

        I thought it was strange to have that conversation at that time.

        That whole scene was strange and probably a set up. That was a little bit too much information. Your mom rushed to get married because she was pregnant, your sister got hitched in Vegas and now you step in to have a “stunning” wedding to a man that I seriously question. She seemed like she still really loved Leon (her daughter’s father).

        Then to top off the wonderful wedding dress shopping experience, you mention your mom’s domestic violence. Okay…let’s keep it light on a day like this. We are looking for wedding dresses, of course not dresses that will be bought off the rack because lest we forget, Cynthia did remind us a few times last night, that she is a model. We all know that Cynthia. You are a beautiful woman. Don’t eat your words and start being your own cheerleader like you clowned Phaedra about.

        • cdnfillie58 says:

          I think Cynthia’s self esteem is pretty low, she got herself into a “feel safe” rut with Peter and doesn’t know how to get out of it. Don’t know her history much and I know she did end up marrying Peter, my guess it won’t last beyond this year. I think she married him for the show only.

        • quincyil says:

          Both mom and sister are good looking..

          Your choices in men affect your children. People also change after marriage. You never know what is going to happen.

      • error404 says:

        It reminded me of the one with Khandi and the one with Camille.

        Khandi’s was the most natural it seemed, because she talking about her own baby daddy problems and Joyce(?) seemed to easily volunteer the info about her past struggles with Khadi’s dad, etc..

        Camille’s seemed the most forced, as her Maureen (?) seemed to clam up and not want to talk about her cancer struggle like at all, and Camille not having cancer, just seemed to come off as self absorbed. I’m still not sure why Camille wanted to talk publicly about her mom’s cancer. I think we’ve gone beyond the days of whispers and hiding, but who knows.

        Cynthia’s seemed to be somewhere inbetween. She was talking about herself and her own childhood and reasons for marriage skittishness, but her Mom seemed to have Maureen’s reluctance to talk on camera about her past struggles, so it fell flat.

        • quincyil says:

          I’m just so glad that Camille’s mom got to see Camille in that very speedy nail session. Patti S took a few moments out for he mom last week. Kim Z seems to be doing the same. I guess it’s on screen time that they are hoping for rather than time with the parents.

  7. Skinnykiss says:

    Well done lynn, great recap. I thought I would share my only tweet I’ve ever seen from Kandi that didn’t have anything to do with her recording a new song or where you can buy her new cd or see her perform. After I tweeted I would have to unfollow another HW that shamelessly plugs herself over and over again filling up my timeline. I got a simple reply from Kandi that simply said, Bye! I was not surprised that she tweeted this to me, I was shocked that her reply also didn’t include dates or locations where I could hear or purchase her music. LOL. Anyway that’s my RHOA story of the week. Enjoy! Again great job Lynn, keep doing what your doing because you do it well.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      that’s pretty funny

    • TrueLifeDiva the troll slayer says:

      I unfollowed Kandi when she kept taking pics of clothes from her boo_teek and posting them. She would just lay a shirt on the floor (with the tag showing), take a camera phone pic, and then post with the price mentioned. It was really tacky. Just post a link to the website and be done 😦 . And the million announcements of performances would be great if you posted pics of those shows. Oh yeah, we know the album will drop Dec. 14, quit telling us every hour on the hour.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      WOW I’m a bit shocked by that Skinny…that doesn’t seem like the Kandi of season one…she seems to have gotten a bit “harsher” this season but I’m still surprised she tweeted that to a fan…probably not the best move.

      I want to keep liking Kandi, stop telling me these things LOL 🙂

  8. Debbie says:

    Another great blog Lynn. Thank you sooo much for including me in your extemely kind words. I am honored to know you. I hope I am now able to post more often. It just feels like home here. The other posters are all so inspiring, loving, give me laughter and provide so much great info. Your blog is getting so big that I would not be surprised at all if Andy asks you to be on WWHL or do some writing for him or something big. I am guessing Jill hates all this atention you get and I LOVE that. Peace and love, Debbie

  9. cusi77 says:

    Thank you Lynn for this Blog. 7 stars. You always manage to make funnier the funny!

    Talking of funny… Why in Heavens Kim’s daughters need a bedroom since they sleep with her? 60K for bringing the circus to town? With whom’s money did she pay for that taky renovation? Not her fan!

    • bacasam says:

      that’s whay I keep thinking about Kim, wigs cost 1,000’s, 60K for child’d bedroom, yadayada, especially when other websites say Big Poppa in Big Money trouble. She previously said somewhere she gets’s no child support? Tardy for party made some bucks, but not that much. I know she’s dating a NFL player, but he’s fairly new to the scene. I’m somewhat ashamed but Seriously, this is driving me crazy.

  10. OneMoreInBoston says:

    Great blog Lynn, Love you

  11. quincyil says:

    Thank you, Lynn for the blog on Atlanta. I too thought Kim’s decorating style was odd. In fact, I’d describe it as “bordelloish.” I realized when looking at Kim’s art gallery of self portraits that Kim fancies herself a sex icon like May West. Well, we should say Maryiln Monroe, because Kim probably doesn’t know who May West is.

    I won’t comment on her daughters because they are children. I will comment on her parents. They are totally believable in that they are just like Kim.

    Sheree Whitfield wants to live the good life. She had better find a man with money soon as she is getting older by the minute.

    Cynthia is beautiful. She also knows it.

    Kandi is in the studio working. I like that.

    I put two yogurt soup recipes on Boston’s site after she went for the day so they may not show up for a while. I also gave a White American’s package version which I think Phadra will criticize.

  12. dickens says:

    OT, but the other day there was talk of Nine By Design. They begin filming the new season this week!

  15. Golden Girl says:

    Lynn, thanks again for the great blog! Did anyone else notice that when Kim was showing her newly decorated office that her dad was singing “I love me” about the way she decorated it?

    • TrueLifeDiva the troll slayer says:

      I did too, and I noticed she just ignored him. I also noticed most of those pics were from a Season1 photo shoot for the country album that never got recorded. She hides her face a lot with wigs, hand, and hat in those pics but shows lots of cleavage. What’s the point? She’s not model material. Those look like the stuff I saw all the time when I worked in boudoir photography studios. Women take those kinds of pics for their husbands, assembled in a calendar for their man. Big Poppa can’t display those in his house so I guess that’s why she has them in hers.

  16. HD says:

    Hey everyone I was wondering…I am making vegetable soup tonight and I wanted to put a can of beans in my soup…does that mean I am not Black anymore? Thanks. 🙂

    • cdnfillie58 says:

      LMAO

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      Wait- you’re black?

      Kidding-kidding!

    • quincyil says:

      Oh, it does mean that you are no Black. We welcome you to the other side with open arms. Do you need a can opener?

      • HD says:

        Quincy I am at work trying to laugh softly!!! You are too funny!! I will bring my own can opener to cross over. LOL! Me and my damn vegetable soup and canned beans! Oh well.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          That’s hilarious. Not to use racism as a joke but…maybe you should show up at any country club that has remained lily white with a can opener and say-” here I am! so are you ready to admit me, I have my can opener?”

          • quincyil says:

            I forget that my Iranian husband came from Iran and that my brother in law is Black. We are more into everyone having a good time and sharing grandchildren with each other. I love both of those men with my whole heart… We are family…

        • quincyil says:

          I use can black beans in some recipes for my Iranian husband. I don’t remember to soak the dried beans the day before and it takes forever for them to soften. I tried serving them as hard pebbles and he complained.

        • colibrimoon says:

          So now us black folks have to jump the broom while holding a can opener? Or does holding the can opener forego jumping the broom…it’s complicated!

      • floridagirl88 says:

        Now that’s funny!

    • TrueLifeDiva the troll slayer says:

      I’m afraid it does ;-). Hand over your “black card” to me immediately!

      • HD says:

        You guys are soooooooooo funny!!! I can see me walking into a country club with my can opener, ‘soooooooo where should I sign up?” LOL!

        Go on, TrueLifeDiva, take my “black card” LOL!

        I am dying laughing! Ya’ll are too funny!

        • TrueLifeDiva the troll slayer says:

      I’m reading this on a break and holy hell woman you crack me up.

  17. error404 says:

    OT but after reading Cynthia’s new blog, I reread Taylor’s from RHoBH… I don’t get it. She stresses how suspicious she was of Kim saying Camille’s was insecure about being in Kelsey’s shadow. Why? Camille has said just that numerous times. And suspicious of what? That Kim has an opinion? What exactly is she getting at? I’m lost.

    I wonder why Taylor and Kim dislike each other so much. Is there prior history? They each said after Vegas that the other was cold to them… which is it? I think I know which side Bravo is on though, because they showed a clip of Taylor with her back turned right to Kim’s face just as they played the voiceover of Kim complaining that Taylor kept her back to her the whole game. LOL!

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      Maybe Kim just bugs her.
      Taylor has a very vivacious, upbeat, happy, sunny personality and Kim is such a Debbie Downer, maybe Taylor just doesn’t like her-without there being a back story behind it.

      • quincyil says:

        Think about the interviews of Taylor. There are many complaints.

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        Huh? Do you really think that Taylor has a very vivacious, upbeat, happy, sunny personality? I don’t see that at all.

        I actually think she is every bit as ragged and self indulgent as Camille. I think her interactions with people are a means to an end- and since Kim can barely do anything for herself, she is no help or use to Taylor- hence the disregard.

        • quincyil says:

          In group settings, Taylor looks vivacious. Take the party and the photos on the table top as an example. Then you listen to the constant digs in the interviews and you get a sense that this woman is not a happy camper.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          I guess what I meant to say is that her personality is carefully cultivated to PROJECT the image of happy go lucky, vivacious etc. It just seems like Kim gets under her skin, and I think the Debbie Downer personality has something to do with it.

          • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

            I think she just has a thing against Kyle because she is jealous that Kyle can express herself. I mean really, FIRST she has to corner the thoughts rattling around her head and corral them into some semblence of a process, THEN she had to figure out how to translate Oklahoma to Beverly Hills, and if that isn’t hard enough FINALLY, she has to attempt to get the words past those over inflated tire tubes.
            Plus she had to figure out how to convey emotion on a face so full of botox and fillers it is immobile. Just exhausting. No energy left to deal with Kim and her issues. Too tired.

          • Rabble Rouser says:

            Ah, okay I get you now as far as Taylor’s personality being a facade of sorts.

            I don’t know if I agree about Kim being a party pooper is the reason behind her treatment of her though. If Kim was a party pooper with money to invest with her hubby- I am sure she would have been doing the Kylie kiss up to Camille dance.

        • error404 says:

          I think she looks down on Kim because she doesn’t have a husband, not does she have the extreme wealth of the other ladies. Taylor is an obvious social climber and I’s say you are right when you say she’s dismisses Kim because she can’t help Taylor.

          Both are Debbie Dowers extroidinaire.. I actually think Kim has much more positive things to say, even sticking up for her sister who picks on her all the time. Kim is someone who has bad luck/things happen to her. Taylor is someone special who is surrounded by bad people who don’t give her the glorious things she so obviously deserves. In many ways, she really is the most unlikeable woman on the show, it’s just that Camille’s circus show of cray-cray overshadows it.

          • Rabble Rouser says:

            🙂

            I wonder if in a way Taylor is a bit jealous of Kim.

            The other married housewife’s seem to have decent husbands who might have their minor imperfections at least see their wife’s as their equals. Taylor’s husband treats her like a ‘bowling’ trophy wife , while it might sparkle and impress at first- people then realize that it’s just bowling and not a noble peace prize and don’t care anymore. So from there it ends up dusty in a forgotten box somewhere in the garage.

            Maybe she resents Kim for being able to get out from under that kind of relationship even at the cost of financial security.

            • bosandi says:

              Any one (or all) of your observations could be right. Taylor is from Oklahoma – nothing wrong with that – but in BH you’re not exactly the pick of the litter. She may be jealous of Kim b/c Kim was actually famous in her own right eons ago. Kim and Kyle are in their element in BH. Taylor probably has to prove to herself daily that she belongs in this world. What has Taylor done on her own besides screw up her face…ouch. It’s easy to pick on Kim b/c she “seems” to be the most vulnerable.

    another OT post, but I don’t know if I should laugh or cry at this… funny but too true

  20. realminkey says:

    My liking for Cynthia is waning with each episode. I haven’t cared for Peter from the beginning, but Cynthia could have at least put on a happy face for her company during the little engagement surprise party. The bridal shop scene was really uncomfortable to watch too. Her sister looked like a very unwilling participant. Are there bad feelings between the two sisters, or was her sister just hating the whole on-camera experience?

    I’m so looking forward to the birth of Fauxdra’s bundle of joy. Can’t wait! lol

    • Golden Girl says:

      I’m not sure about her yet but the way Peter proposed was awful! IMO he did it just to get more air time that’s why he had everyone there. He didn’t even put the ring on the correct finger.

      • realminkey says:

        Totally agree on the proposal. It was awful.

        IMO, she’s still in love with her baby daddy. She certainly seems to like him more, if nothing else.

        We know she and Peter went through with it and got married, but I don’t see any deep love there from either one of them, and certainly no passion.

        • Golden Girl says:

          I agree with you . I wonder why Cynthia and her ex broke up, they still seem to have chemistry together.

  23. WindyCityWondering says:

    The most disturbing ATL segment last night for me was Phaedra preparing for her business trip to the hospital. The faces, those lips, the announcement that she wants a country baby, the genuine concern about her hospital wardrobe but her haziness on who takes care of the baby in the hospital…but the 50 cent piece had me on the floor laughing to the point of tears – WTF?! The holding to the party line that this baby is being delivered early because he is physically ready is so sad…this is not quantum physics and she is not a southern belle!

    • HD says:

      What was so stupid to me about that was the fact she was leaving ATL to have the baby. To me this is to allow for her lie to be done in secret without friends and family coming up to the hospital.

      Why wouldn’t you have your baby in the city? I can see if you are some really big celebrity where maybe just maybe you wanted to have your baby somewhere private, etc. but come on. I am certain she is not having that baby in ATL to keep this lie going.

      • lillybee says:

        I have a feeling that Phaedra will not nurse her baby for more than 2 weeks, if that.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        lol No family or friends allowed but Bravo will be there? That chick is so far into her fantasy life that she can’t see the obvious!

    LOL, I almost fell off my chair laughing! That’s her new name, I luv it!

  25. boston02127 says:

    I can not stand Sherri. Can.not.stand. She is the MOST ghetto of them all and it shows more and more on each episode.

    • quincyil says:

      She seems like a good mom to me, Boston. She was with a famous and wealthy man for a long time. It affects your perception of yourself and your place in life. Sherry is Kelly and Sonja and the Countess. Someone who had their identity hooked on to a rising star, but lost the connection through a glitch that was not their making.

      The Aston Martin was a sign of her past wealth. The fact that her lawyer took it away was probably surprising to her.

      As for dreaming that she is something more than she probably is, all of the housewives are guilty of that. You don’t sign up for this, unless you have a sense that you are superior.

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        The only kind words I can muster up for Sheree is that dispute being a young mom, her adult daughter seems to be doing extremely well (MUCH more than NeNe work-shy layabout oldest son) so maybe she did something right- although I suspect she wasn’t the one who raised her.

        • floridagirl88 says:

          I think Sheree’s daughter was not raised by Sheree, but by Sheree’s mother. Remember that until this season, Sheree never acknowledged that this woman WAS her daughter, preferring to refer to her as a family friend. That’s deep.

    • error404 says:

      I don’t know about more and more.. last season she got into at least two screaming matches that turned physical… compared to that, she’s almost “whitehouse ready” this season. lol

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      I think she has such extreme fear of failure that she doesn’t even try to do the hard work necessary and tries to coast through everything she attempts in life.

      Sh*t by Sheree?
      Actress?
      Dancing with the Stars/Atlanta?

      She isn’t REALLY failing, you see, because of course if she tried at any of them she would have blown us all out of the water right?

      If you watch her very closely, she consistently foists the blame for every flaw in her life onto someone else. Her ex-husband, Dwight etc.

      While she may be a loving mother, what message is she sending to her children when she won’t accept any responsibility for her mistakes?

      There comes a time when the maxim “Fake It til You Make it” begins to fail. Hello Kim? Same story, different girl.

    icantstandthetoxicity on November 15, 2010 at 8:58 am &
    Mickey mouth thanks for the heads up on the Apes who didn’t care if they destroyed many families.
    Remember Had Enough found that there is a pre trial
    Dec 14 2010 w/the local Bk R
    Trustee Sywilok. The Apes can’t afford to go to trial & their lawyer knows he won’t get paid for a trial. So their lawyer desperately wants to settle. This sympathy ploy is just that a ploy.
    I am going to find out if it is open to the public. If it is I want to go. Where is Laura ?
    Remember she met T at a book thing & had planned to go to the auction. We also lost WestSide Dude. (I guess he couldn’t promise not to say the C word)
    Any way my new Bf is the lead para legal so I don’t have to bother Trustee John.In my email I asked if it was possible to get a gag order since articles by T could influence her sympathy. Knowing them the jury will b a bunch of lying “fans”.
    Any one who thinks I am mean doesn’t know me. I hate injustice and grossly filling ur house w/marble etc that cannot b reposed is a smart/evil way to steal. They counted on the laws that allow u to keep ur house. That is unless their is fraud which they didn’t count on getting caught for. We know their character thru a tenant in their Gov’t sub. Housing who was hurt badly due to jo breaking code standards ,who was told “sue me” by Jo. T hasn’t given up one item of clothing or jewlery. She had an over the top B day party for Gia when 40 merchants were begging to be paid.
    Yes I think they need to go to “debtors prison”. I think T should b required to serve as a maid to all she stole from imbetween her star appearances & work till she pays off her debt. I think the children should babysit & sell vacuum cleaners door to door etc ,to help their parents when old enough. All these things build character.If the Bk R stay is lifted the ones stolen from can sue & attach future wages anyway.
    I sold flowers door to door at 7. Before parents helped w/Girl Scout cookies, I sold more cookies than anyone in the state one year. I could work in a store only at Christmas until 16. I always had babysitting jobs. I got the most coveted job in town at the Pappagalloe store & worked thru High school. Etc etc etc. My parents did not need for me to work but they also didn’t give an allowance. My point by the time I came to NY at 21 I believed any one who hired me would get their moneys worth and I was not shy. And I was right
    I believe working will help each of those girls get over them selves & if they r embarrassed by their parents robberies their neighbors ,they will know they made a contribution.
    When young men die for their countries u don’t see whiny families on soap boxes saying it destroyed the whole family ;in their cases it did. The jooDice r a disgrace but they think their celebrity status will “cover their sins”. I will b very disheartened if it does !
    So hard work won’t hurt the monkets !

      Ha. You are right on about the lawyers.
      His argument should have been “this will destroy my practice if I have to represent these boobs at trail”.

      After being sued 2x by a couple of nutjob extortionists I know it costs serious money in legal feees just to defend yourself – and we never got to depositions!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      The lifestyle that J&T stole on the backs of other ‘families’ needs to be recognized for what it really is and that they are not worthy of a fresh start. It bothers me that this will adversely affect the children is considered a reason not to throw out the petition (“they will not recover from this??? yes they will just not in the style they were falsely led to believe they were entitled to)!! Of course it will have an impact on their children and with any luck they will rebound and not commit the sins of their parents.
      WSL – I appreciate your passion for justice and willingness to seek it!

    • Adgirl says:

      WSL do you have time to get your law degree and get a job with the bankruptcy prosecutors office before the G’s trial?? I think you are the one to speak out against these insane exhibitionist grifters!!

    • T-REX says:

      I agree WSL about the Lawyer wanting to settle. Settling is a fraction of what it costs to go to trial, and I like how he throws in the “they will pay the taxes”, uhm, you HAVE to, you cannot have those discharged in bankruptcy, that’s just PR for the Press. I also love the it’s Not “Joe Guidice” it’s a family, seriously, that family was all over Reality TV spending gobs of money they didn’t have, and spending even after they filed for bankruptcy.

      • quincyil says:

        Is it a federal judge or a NJ judge? I thought fed…. if so they might not get everything they hope for in a settlement. Fed judges have sent US Congressmen to jail for perjury and failing to pay taxes. Their lawyer can say whatever he wishes to say, but he might just be doing PR and hoping for the best.

        • T-REX says:

          Bankruptcy goes through the Federal Courts, and yes, the last thing you want to do is mess with them. The Juicy’s are so stoopid, Federal courts love to make an example of folks like these, liars, and cheats who want to make a mockery of the Justice system, in addition to lying to hide assets. I think their lawyer is trying to do damage control in the press, but no one finds the Juicy’s likeable so no Judge is going to give them a “free pass”. Take a look at the Martha Stewart case, she would probably have gotten a slap on the wrist, but the courts wanted to make her an “example”.

      The bankruptcy is probably the best thing for those spoiled “kids.” They should be glad T won’t be able to buy those awful head/hair things anymore. And if lack of money will destroy your family then it wasn’t much of a family to begin with.

    Mae West fits the bill, and, here in S.F. we had Carol Doda. Big on the sexy with a wink and a laugh.
    Kim IS ridiculous. We just aren’t sure if she’s IN on the joke with us. 🙂

    Cynthia and Peter. If he doesn’t know Cynthia well enough by now to realize she would want her real engagement to be private and personal … I don’t think this couple is gonna make it. She is not passionate about him.
    Plus his club is closed IRL right? So they are living off her housewive salaray and modeling gigs? I give it 2 years.
    Sorry they are nice people, but maybe not for each other.

    • error404 says:

      he stated very plainly in his talking head that he knew she’d hate it, but he did it anyway. He wanted the proposal to be about him.

      I don’t have any prediction on how long the marriage will last, as I’m at a complete loss for why she married him in the first place.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        IMO, she really didn’t want to marry him and he needs to close the deal as his revenue streams are running dry!

  33. ArizonaMagpie says:

    I am so glad the Lynnfam watches this show for me. I love the recap and the comments you write. I’ve tried watching RHOA several times but I can’t stand to watch Kim or the Kim-Kandi relationship. Kandi has to start standing up to her.

    Wishing you all a great day!

    • error404 says:

      I think “Tardy” was an unexpected hit and I think this season is a very calculate effort on Khandi’s part to prove to the world that she’s 99.99% responsible for it’s success. Kim is about as talented as those dogs who bark Jingle Bells.

      • TrueLifeDiva the troll slayer says:

        Dallas Austin took a lot of flak for working with Kim on season1 (tightrope) and Kandi did as well last season. Many of the hip hop entertainment sites questioned the need for these established producers/songwriters to work with this hot mess. Dallas even got into a twitter war with Kim when he tweeted that he only worked with her for t.v. People speculated that Kandi must be super broke to work with no talent Kim. Dallas and Kandi’s integrity were questioned. This season Kandi is trying to show she is a serious artist by working with Lawrence (who can sing) and getting tough with Kim.

        • ArizonaMagpie says:

          Yes, I loved Lawrence (heard him when I watched for a few minutes – I was inspired to watch from reading Lynn’s recap). I had to turn it off when Kandi was coaching Kim and teaching her the song. It is so painful and disgusting I just can’t watch. Kandi has talent. I can’t stand to see her wasting her time on Kim.
          JMO

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          I think Tardy 4 the Party made a lot more $$$ than Kandi expected.
          She has a new label, and needs some hits.
          Kim has the novelty schtick flavor that could bring in some cash so I think she’s putting up with her for that.

          I remember that twitter war with dallas and how it surprised me they were able to get a talented man like that on the show. Kandi must have pulled in a few favors.

          lately I’ve been wondering if maybe Kim is in on the act? and is acting as disrespectfully as possible to play up the drama factor before the song’s release? Just a thought….

          • HD says:

            OneMoreInBoston…I agree. I am sure Kandi never thought Tardy for the Party would make as much money which is why she did not handle things as professionally as she should have by drawing up contracts and what not.

            Now I may get it for this, but I do not like that Ring Didn’t Mean A Thing song. It didn’t have that catchy feel to it like Tardy for the Party. Unless Kim and Kandi are “really” good friends, I would just hang it up. Forget Kim and her fake singing and fake Lady Gaga diva attittude!

            • WindyCityWondering says:

              Didn’t like the ring song either – plus it was obvious Kim couldn’t sing it! Kandi wasn’t being real – she knows Kim’s limitation and is playing her. Passive agressive isn’t a pretty on Kandi.

              • Adgirl says:

                Absolutely. Kandi was out to embarrass Kim.
                I really like Kandi but that was beneath her.
                Kandi uses Kim because Kim is “personality” with a following of some sorts.

                Kim is a gimmick. Her song will get airtime while Kandi will have to fight for it.

            • Debbie says:

              I agree. I REALLY didn’t like that song. It had nothing to offer. Has anyone heard Kims “Google Me” song? Is it any good?

  34. Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

    Lynn,
    I am so flattered that you mentioned me, and for you to compliment my posts is just….wow. Especially considering it was your blog and the encouragement of this community that led me to try my own hand at this whole writing thing and gave me the courage to put it out there for all to see! Being able to come here and indulge my guilty pleasure was just great, but then to begin to get to know everyone and find the community of support and humor and protectiveness that is so unique to this site was beyond wonderful. The tone of this blog is a tribute to you. The posters who return day after day is a tribute to what you have created. I humbly accept your appointment at the official “duchess” of this blog and dip a deep curtsy to show my homage to our true Queen!

  35. Adgirl says:

    I must say the ATL ladies, (with the exception of Kandi and maybe Cynthia) are just rough socially. I think Phaedra is probably really bad too.
    $20 for a full meal, drinks and it’s a FUND RAISER?
    And noooooo Sheree, you did not “pay” $1500 for that table – the charity gave it to you so RHOA cast members would sit there and the real charitable people would show up to watch you wiggle around.
    Kandi has traveled for business. She’s had managers & agents to teach her how to behave at fundraisers. I don’t get why Cynthia didn’t say anything about donating more, but I don’t think she or Peter have much money in the first place.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      NeNe set the tone at that table – clearly she didn’t give a damn about the charity but was all about punking Sheree. I wish Kandi would have just made the donation she felt appropriate and not played along with the NeNe train.

      • quincyil says:

        Nene almost threatened Kandi over the amount. She looked awful doing this. The winner of the charity award this week is….Sheree.. she tried to dance and paid for the table. The other ladies are losers.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          NeNe just couldn’t let Sheree have any significant votes. So the charity has to suffer because of her pettiness and jealousy of Sheree. True colors are finally starting to show this season!

        • JKW says:

          I would bet several of them either gave more money in private or sent it to the charity. That was just tacky with giving $20. Nene just had plastic surgery done for who knows how much ? and could only give $20. As for Candi having managers etc to tell her how to act at fund raisers…it’s only commono sense. It’s a charity and you should know going in you are going to donate. Candi could have easily turned that back on Nene by saying..I wouldn’t think of giving only $20 after this nice meal. ( assuming it was lol ). I think at that point Nene and te others might have coughed up more money.

          • quincyil says:

            I bet Kim Zolciak didn’t give. She doesn’t think her church deserves financial support. LOL.

            Kim Z said she is Italian and Catholic. If she gets tired of Atlanta, she can move to NJ.

          • Debbie says:

            Do you think it’s possible that Bravo pays for all the plastic surgeries that all the different HW’s get? Maybe to add someting to a storyline?

    • realminkey says:

      The correct etiquette is that one donates no less than the cover cost per person. To do otherwise is freeloading. These women are so damned tacky, it kills me.

      • HD says:

        The donation shocked me too. Not because they are cheap (minus Kandi) that’s a given, but because they were on TV and always want to “appear” as if they have so much money so the fact that they were sooooooooooooooooo cheap in front of the cameras is what shocked me. 20 bucks! And Greg was REALLY eating his dinner like he was hungry.

      • JKW says:

        Hey Real…correct etiquette ? Did you forget it was the housewives that are being discussed ? lol I don’t think they know the meaning of the word etiquette, let alone even pronounce it.

    • American Idiot says:

      I agree Adgirl. I dislike “committe parenting” or “committee giving” My husband and I were invited to a black tie wedding once, and so were about 3 other couples we knew. Well, the “committee” (just a group of invitees) decided everyone should give the same amount of money as a gift. I thought the amount was too low, so I just said I was giving what I thought was appropriate. We also have had instances of “committee” parenting, where a group of parents get together and say something like “let’s all say no when our kids ask us to do this certain thing” Well, I always decide on my own or with my husband. We are the “committee” in my household, and make our decision together, without anyone’s help.

      The Atlanta ladies should have given more, IMO.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      My hubby- who only half ass watches the show with me looked up from whatever he was doing and said “Did they REALLY just only donate $20?”. We spent more than that on my 3 year olds cookie sale at her special day class- and the funds are going to help the 6th graders field trip.

      Sheree didn’t suck as badly as I thought she would= but I think somewhere in my mind I was comparing her to Kate fn Gosselin- who makes Sheree look like Ginger Rogers in comparison.

      • quincyil says:

        When they looked at the percentage of income that people give, it turned out that people with low incomes give a higher percentage than the rich. I think Louisianna was the highest and the people were the poorest. I think that people see the need so they give more.

  36. jen says:

    Great blog Lynn- I used to watch but now b/c it’s on same time as Brother and Sisters, I just read your blod Monday and watch re-runs…..1 thing though, for Fakedra I believe she was talkign to the other girl in the room who is her assistant just about having he write stuff down……

    Thanks for keep us up to date! Love reading!

  37. Wall St Lady says:

    kmuellfa
    I know at the Barn they have all the pies to go & can also pack in dry ice. The lemon chess pie recipe was from my mother.
    When will u b in Wilmington next? We can meet on the ocean at Crystal Pier or the Blockade Runner. Or in town on the river at Elijahs.
    What does kmuellfa stand for ?

    • kmuellfa says:

      WSL- My grandparents have passed, so I have no family in Wilmington any more. I miss it, I have such great memories of the place.

      Once I get my RN, I would consider moving there. Kmuellfa is my first initial, part of my last name (muell) and I am a flight attendant (fa)

      You may have to post the lemon chess pie on boston’s recipe blog-I had some time today so I posted a few.

    • kmuellfa says:

      ah, Elijah’s, another family favorite. Love the bar (and the raw bar as well!)

      Now I want fresh seafood. I must be PMS’ing with all these cravings.

  38. Kokuanani says:

    There’s no OC blog, so I guess I’ll have to stick this here.

    Hot off the presses, I just received my e-Mail from Us magazine, including at item on Tamara Barney

    http://www.usmagazine.com/celebritynews/news/real-housewives-of-ocs-tamra-barney-dishes-on-her-new-guy-20101511?utm_source=dailynewsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=newsletter

    Tamara’s yapping about her “new man” “Eddie” and how he bought her a BMW, and they just got back from a trip to Spain.

    Remind me again: from whence does “Eddie” get his $$$$?

    • T-REX says:

      So Tamra, husband’s business tanks, she divorces the “control freak”(who was one when they married), no more money for 2 nanny’s, vacations, big house, etc. so she sidles up into another guy with $$$$$, and she calls Gretchen names for her life.

  39. Adgirl says:

    I get the feeling that this season is the last for Sheree. There just isn’t a story line for her and she’s flat broke. There’s no Shit by Sheree and no wig tugging.

    If Sheree and Phaedra can get into it then I think we have a reason for her presence. I could totally get into watching those bitches go at it. Right now I see Sheree fading awaaaaaaayyy.

  40. JKW says:

    Re: Phaedra.
    By the way, the silver dollar on the naval to prevent an outie is an old wives tale. They used to try that and also belly bands so it’s not an outie belly button. It doesn’t work but people used to do try it. She obviously hasn’t read or spoken with anyone and has no clue…or she is playing stupid and in that case it’s working for her.

    • error404 says:

      I don’t know what she thinks she’s playing at, but it’s backfiring.

      Take Kiki for example. Tried to pass off her breakdown as all an act for tv. 55% of the population still thinks she’s in need of a straight jacket. 40% thinks she’s a ass for putting on an act. 5% couldn’t muster up the energy for an opinion.

      Either Fakedra is an idiot for real, or an idiot for thinking she could play one and not come off poorly. It’s a lose lose situation.

      • lillybee says:

        I don’t think she is an idiot. She is playing one for the cameras and I don’t have an idea why.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          it must be an act. A schtick. I don’t get it either.

          • WindyCityWondering says:

            She is a graduate of KKB’s acting school!

          • JKW says:

            It is crazy because if she is doing it for the publicity she is dead wrong. I would think she would lose the clients she has and never get any new ones. She looks like stupid. Unless she needs the money there is no other reason to do this. I wonder if they have a meeting before the show starts. Ok HWs raise your hands…who wants to be the stupid one this season ? Who wants to be the slutty one ? Who wants to cause drama ? Ok, this season is figured out.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      I hope Phaedra didn’t have any weird food craving that weren’t satisfied or that poor baby is going to be born with all kinds of weird birthmarks.

  41. American Idiot says:

    OFF TOPIC – I never post any personal information here – but today I will because I am so happy. My son got accepted into a college he is really interested in attending. So YAY! for him, and big RELIEF for me.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      YAY!
      Mom of college bound progeny!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Congratulations to both of you!

    • quincyil says:

    • klmh says:

      Congratulations to all!

    • T-REX says:

      Congrats! Good for him! I hope he really loves College!

      P.S. Let’s hope his school has the sense not to spend 15K on Zarinspew, like my Alma Mater did!

      • American Idiot says:

        Thanks for the congrats everyone! I appreciate it. So, T-REX, you attended the school where JZ spoke. Wow! If any RH were to speak at this school (where my son was accepted) it would probably be a NJ one, since the school is in NJ. But why?? why?? why?? college is a learning atmosphere. Any housewife speaker should be able to impart knowledge, not fluff.

        I can’t believe Teresa is getting paid for speaking engagements as well.

        • T-REX says:

          Yep, good old USF in Tampa, Florida, better known in my day as the University of Sun and Fun. Don’t know that my school will be receiving any money from this Alumnus any time soon!

          • American Idiot says:

            I don’t blame you. I wouldn’t send them another dollar. They will regret that stupid decision.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      Wow- great news 🙂

    • twoile says:

      Hip, hip etc, gr8 for you both. ENJOY!!!!!!

  42. nappykink says:

    totally OT, but I am hosting the neighborhood ladies tomorrow night. I need good appy ideas. prob about 10 women. I’m thinking of baking a brie and making a dip and a crudite but could be swayed. input?

    • TEB says:

      Check Boston’s recipe blog (click on Boston02127)

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      easiest appy ever:
      Take 2-3 baquettes, cut them up into round slices (you know what I mean) Cut up the Brie to fit onto the slices, press onto the Brie almond slices, not the slivers, but the kind that go onto desserts. Bake them or put them in the toaster oven for the time it takes to make toast.
      They come out warm and cheesy and gooey, the almond slices make them look elegant and it makes it cheaper because you stretch your Brie. Put them on a tray with some grapes in the middle, and if you get super fancy some hulled strawberries.
      sorry, that’s all I have!

    • 2Stupid says:

      This recipe always wows and is sooooooo easy. Take a small box of cream cheese and let get room temperature. Mix in crumbled feta cheese with a blender. Roll into a really big/flattish ball and put in a baking dish. Cover with high end spaghetti sauce and bake at 350 for 45 min. Serve with fresh baguettes (warmed or not). Easy and good!

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Don’t forget the jelly beans! 😀 (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)

  43. Ione says:

    Don’t know if this link has been given before. I thought it was interesting since Jane identified Phaedra as an a good friend, an actress and on the Desperate Housewives of Atlanta, ha,ha. Go to the last picture of this blog entry.

    http://janefonda.com/g-capps-ikea-event/

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I almost didn’t recognize her without her boughetto costume and makeup!

    • Zoey says:

      Did you read any of the comments????????? Interesting….

      They talk about ‘G-Capp’, Jane Fonda’s organization she founded 16yrs ago to help PREVENT teenage PREGNANCY! Phaedra is a part of this group. It’s all making sense (just not good sense) why she lied so much about when she got preggers!

      • Golden Girl says:

        I could not figure out why this educated woman would make such an uneducated remark about delivering her baby so early just because the baby was sitting on her bladder; it all makes sense now!

        • error404 says:

          doesn’t make any sense to me. How can you be a role model to teen girls by giving out ignorant misinformation about pregnancy, biology, the medical practice, etc.. as well as promote old wives tales about child raising. HEck, Celie from The Color Purple would make a better sex educator than Fakedra.

  44. OneMoreInBoston says:

    I wonder why there are no Asian housewives?

    Lisa Wu was half chinese (?) but that’s it.

    Or Latina?

    • Adgirl says:

      Good question. There are aspirational asian women who like to flaunt their stuff!
      When I lived in OC I worked down the street from South Coast Plaza, the mall where most of the wealthy OC women shop (including the cast members). There is an upscale wing that is all Prada, Gucci, Valentino, Chanel boutiques. Most of the ladies making purchases were asian.
      Dressed to the nines head to toe. It’s stunning to see real people wearing $30,000 of clothing at once.

      • quincyil says:

        Indian from India too. They love expensive clothes and labels.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          or Iranian? Or Saudia Arabian?

          • quincyil says:

            BH would have been the place to feature a rich Iranian woman. BH high has Farsi as a language offering.

            Frankly, I don’t know of a Saudi woman, one more in Boston. I know so many women from Asia and never met a Saudi woman. I saw four in the Desert Inn in an elevator following their husband around.

            I listen to Middle Eastern people share and go to the Islamic Center for events. It seems that Syrian, Egpytian, Lebanonese, Iranian, Pakistanian and Indian people are not fond of Saudis. You can see it on their web sites too.
            They all want to go to Mecca, but they say pretty awful things about Saudis.

            • OneMoreInBoston says:

              There are some Saudi and Dubai women who come to Boston with their extended families because of our amazing world renowned hospitals.

              The wealth of the women from Dubai is truly staggering.

              • quincyil says:

                My daughter did her training at Brigham’s Women’s and Children’s and she had a Saudi Prince as a patient. She said the people with him were men.

            • Kansas Girl says:

              Come visit! Lots of Saudis and everything else here. It’s like a buffet of international people!

            • MickeyMouth says:

              Now I have to figure out how to ask this question during Thanksgiving. The Syrians are coming to my house for dinner.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Maybe it has something to do with the demographics that Bravo has identified for their housewives franchises…

      • Adgirl says:

        Maybe they are all smarter enough to know better!

        • Adgirl says:

          Also in OC there are huge number of Iranians – whom prefer to be called Persian.
          Many cannot go back to Tehran because someone in their family worked for the Shah (years ago).

          My hairdresser (who is gorgeous) told me she visits her parents in Tehran 1x year. They are middle class and live in a sort of compound. When she is in public she has to be covered from head to toe, but at home they wear what they want and have huge parties with lots of booze!

          • quincyil says:

            They are very loyal to family. They also love education.

            I was told my Iranians from Shiraz who live in Malibu on the ocean that the Jewish Iranians with tremendous wealth from years of serving the Shah’s government are the larger group in Beverly Hills.

            There are a lot of Iranians heading to Canda because the time to get into Canada is shorter. I have two nieces with applications right now.

            My Iranian family is Shiite Muslim, but I have Iranians friends who are Zorastrian and Jewish.

            • Adgirl says:

              Wow. It is funny to think you live on a farm or ranch with all of your multiculturism.
              Do you make any of their yummy food?

              • quincyil says:

                Yes. I have cooked Persian/Iranian food for 33 years. I put two yogurt soup recipes on Boston’s food site this morning, plus some advice from and American who cooks Iranian foods.

            • OneMoreInBoston says:

              I want to learn more about Zorastrian. isn’t the only or largest remaining temple in CA?

              • quincyil says:

                They are very small in number. I know Afghans, Iranians and Pakistanis who belong to the religion.

                I have to leave for an exercise class, but Jesus studied with the Essenes in the desert. They used documents that we know as the Dead Sea Scrolls. There is evidence that some of their concepts came from the Zorastrians which was the predominent religion of Persia at that time. The concept of light of the Holy Spirit and fire…is Zorastrian. It is an important part of our Christian religion. Zoraster should be considered a prophet.

                I have a circuit training class in town…

              • T-Rex says:

                Zorastrian is one of the oldest organized religions in the World. A great read is Cosmos, Chaos and the World to come by Norman Cohn it is a good history of organized religions, although I had to sit with a Dictionary for the first few days of reading as did my Ivy League family members.

    Copied from last post–

    Hi Lynn,

    Thank you for including me on the thank you list 🙂 You are welcome and THANK YOU for creating this place.

    I got busy on the weekend and was able to post only on Saturday, I did check in, but noticed I was oh soooo late to join in that I just read. I read a little again right now, but my break is over. I can’t really be on my work computer doing this too long. I will check back later, and I might just print 11/15 blog to read on a another break 🙂

    Also, I tried to donate for your radio show, but I was concern to enter my information, sorry 😦 me worry 😛

    Everyone,
    Your comments about your personal past and present problems made me feel sad. Not to stop reading, but sad to know so many people go through abuse 😦 in one way or another. I went to sleep praying that all those people who were abused find peace, and all those who are now being abused, find help.

    kmuellfa I remember u told me that. Ur Grand dad sounded like a special man. I am glad u had a cool grand dad. Mine all died when I was young except a grandmother in Salisbury NC.
    I now remember your moniker,u told me once b4.
    What’s this about an RN ? I have a set of Drs in Wilmington cuz I like the atmosphere so much more than NYC. With Duke no one can say med. Care is better in NYC.
    Hurry up & get ur RN & you can b my nurse in old age & help my mom now.

    • quincyil says:

      Being an RN is a wonderful career.

      • error404 says:

        yes, although I agree with whomever said it above. All of the RNs i know are no-nonsnese types. Kim Z and Countless Lulu are so far from that, it’s shocking that they were in nursing. These too love nonsense.

    • kmuellfa says:

      Uh, WSL, it’s a deal. 18 months and counting. I can be paid in fresh seafood and AB cheese crocks. And good single malt scotch.

      Yeah, my Pop Pop was special. We had a special bond. He had 4 granddaughters and I was the only one interested in flying. When he sold his business and “retired” he became an airplane broker and worked out of the FBO at the Wilmington Airport.
      The summer after I turned 16, I lived with them so he could give me flying lessons-he made me wash and fuel airplanes to pay for my fuel, the lessons were free. 🙂
      I have so many great stories about him and Nana. She died a few years ago, and since they both wanted to be cremated, Nana’s caretaker combined both their ashes in a tiny urn for me(they are buried in the Wilmington National Cemetery). I keep it next to a pic of them racing by on my Indian moped (with the most wonderful huge grins)I had as a teenager.

      One favorite story of mine was one time they were flying up to MI to visit us, and about 45 mins after takeoff, Nana realized she forgot her sunglasses. He turned his plane around back to Wilmington to get them for her. They lived like normal middle/upper-middle class folks, when he died, I found out they were millionaires.
      Nana outlived him by 20 years (she was a scotch drinker like me), and never wanted for anything. We had the money to pay for 24 hour care for her so she was always able to stay in her home, and able to die in her own home.

        • kmuellfa says:

          Yeah, I love them both so much for the way they lived their lives. They were definitely characters, I could go on and on, but I won’t. 🙂

  48. Hi all.

    Jenn Sale BS Blog: http://wp.me/pXhBd-Ta

    Now she’s on twitter playing victim all like “What did I do? I’m not arguing with anyone.” Lol.
    Dina Manzo in training: tweet, delete, then block everyone who tweets to Lynn and claim that you are protecting yourself from negativity. Lol.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      Read it and luvs it

      Funny how she never “spoke out” against IHJZ until there was a radio show and a blog counter posted.

      how dare an unprofessional hobby blogger be more successful that a professional blogger!

      • lillybee says:

        Jealous is what I think.

      • nancy says:

        That was insane. This Jenn gal has a few screws loose. No one tells me whose blog I should read and whose I should not. Been reading this blog for 6 plus months and have never felt Lynn was mean to anyone. In fact Lynn keeps a safe board here and I am proud to be a follower.

        • CinDLu says:

          Just had to say I totally agree with ^Nancy^. That is totally insane!! I have been reading daily and lurking here for about 5 or so months now all because Lynn & friends make me LMFAO!!!

          I only recently made a comment and Lynn thanked me!!! Oh Em Gee!!! Me??!!?? In the words of Wayne and Garth ~ I’m not worthy, I’m not worthy!! ; )

    • scorpiosue1102 says:

      LOVED your blog. Funny how Jenn closed the comments on her blog post. So she wants to rant, but she does not want anyone to comment on her b.s. I’ve found that her info that is supposed to be so great really isn’t. WSL has found out more than she has.

      • She closed the comments because she doesn’t want to expose herself to opinions who differ from hers.
        It must be nice to use the block button so heavily and close your comments and only ever see msgs from people who agree with you and tell you how great you are.

    • quincyil says:

      I was up one night and I looked at her tweets. Passive aggressive. She has issues. She would encourage people to say mean things about us and then claim not to be a part of it.

      I won’t bother with this person’s blog.

      • American Idiot says:

        I agree, Q. I will read Lynn’s blog and possibly RCH – but no other. Who has time for all this nonsense? Lynn has a great thing going here, so I can only assume people are jealous?? What other reason to demean other people??

        Also, JS has typos and grammatical errors; so much for her claim to be a professional writer.

        • quincyil says:

          I make typos… especially when I am tired like tonight.

          She can say anything she likes about anyone. She should know however, that you make enemies when you do that kind of thing. The best thing she could do to become popular to to stick with the subject at hand, the shows.

          • American Idiot says:

            Yes, Q, we all make typos here. Typing too fast; distractions, etc. I probably have at least one in every post.

            My point was just that she several times called herself a “professional” writer. If she is going to use the word “professional” like that (implying, I believe that everyone else is not “professional”) well then, she better not have any typos or grammatical errors.

            IMO, JS believes she is better than everyone else. Especially anyone here, including Lynn.

    • AZ Girl says:

      There is enough room on the internet for everyone and their opinions. Why does Ms. Sale feels she needs validate herself by putting others down? Others who may not agree with her but still have a huge following?

      Wait I know the answer to this…. it is kinda….like…..wait….it is coming to me……..(insert sip of wine here)…..It like JILL ZARIN. OMG! JILL ZARIN IS CLONING HERSELF. Everyone to the basement. :0

  49. Zoey says:

    I noticed in the comments below Phaedra’s pic there is insight into her buddy Jane Fonda’s org to prevent teen pregancy. (Ion’s link I reposted) Hmmm, reason for Fakedra’s lies?

    http://janefonda.com/g-capps-ikea-event/

    • Zoey says:

      Please excuse typos, ‘pregnancy’. Feeling like a slug ran over by a Mack truck today…

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Last time I checked Phaedra is NOT a teenager! Maybe she thinks she is a role model for teenage girls?

        • Zoey says:

          Whatever this G -Capp org. is, she must be a part of it for her to go on international trips with Jane Fonda. She was supposed to be a role model…looks like she gets a big fat zero, but for being so dishonest.

  51. scorpiosue1102 says:

    I have to say that RHOA keeps growing on me. NeNe and her one liners are absolutely fantastic. She cracks me up every time. Kandi is one of my favorite housewives. She talented, smart and nice. Funny how that is :). Kim is almost cartoonish in a bad, used, chain smoking Jessica Rabbit with no morals kind of way. Phaedra wants to be the epitome of the Southern belle yet does not meet her own expectations. Especially when you have a shotgun wedding with your younger, not working, ex-con husband. If she says “Fiddle-dee-dee” I may just vomit.

    • American Idiot says:

      ERROR, ERROR, ERROR, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. You’re the best. How sweet of you to post the links for me. OK, I was only 30 in 1989, so why don’t I remember any of this controversy. Oh wait, I was pregnant, that must be it.

      And that’s Cynthia’s first husband! Who knew! (I guess you did, ha, ha)

  52. Wall St Lady says:

    I think it is UNFORGIVABLE
    That NeNe accepted a $150 seat as a gift and not only did not contribute to the cause but intimidated Kandy to not give. Nene has the manners of a hungry dog & the charm of snake & the class of a nasty trash can ! If she couldn’t afford to contribute she shouldn’t have taken the free ticket. Shree didn’t do this for her health she did it to raise $$ for charity. Remember when Nene had the hat party to raise $$$ for her charity that by the way went nowhere ? She asked for $$ and Sherri contributed.
    “Do unto others what u would have them do unto u” in any religion means the same thing.
    So NeNe’s baby mama didn’t teach her the “Golden Rule”.
    What goes around comes around. And I believe Miss Ghetto may regret her mean ,tacky & stingy selfish,obnoxious,arrogant ways !
    (Can u tell I don’t respect her?)
    At least she isn’t a thief like T. Gregg can just go bankrupt on his own after she divorces him since she has already spent his $$.Parish the thought of helping him when he is down,even if he did cheat.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      IMHO NeNe did it to disrespect Sheree. She didn’t think Sheree did it for charity, she thought she did it for self aggrandizement.

      It was very petty. And I liked that Sheree didn’t really say to much about it, she just kind of let it speak for itself.

      I also am not convinced that Greg cheated. There is a lot of innuendo and insinuation but no real accusations. And since when has NeNe ever been subtle about anything? um, never. So why the subtlety here? Waging a war of whispers.

      • quincyil says:

        I have another issue with Nene and many of the wives. Why is their money their money? Their husbands are supposed to work and pay the rent and living expenses while the women can spend their income on beautification projects? It just doesn’t seem right to me. I think that leads to men feeling taken advantage of like Gregg’s message on the phone.

        Gregg didnt’ like the chefs in the show where Kim came over. I think he was concened about the costs of that little event. If his work is down, he might be under stress. Nene should be paying the bills and help him during his hard times.

        • error404 says:

          for all we know she is paying all the bills, which make shim feel measculated as well as depressed.

          Who knows what goes on in a marriage, but I will hold Greg to what he actually says and does:

          1. Why did he keep the $500 Dwight thing from Nene? I smell a rat. My husband certainly doesn’t do business with my friends behind my back.
          2. He point blank says he refuses to talk about anything. How exactly are you suppose to emotionally support someone who refuses to even speak of the subject?
          3. He takes his pillow and he goes sleep downstairs. I graduated from the vanderpump school of marriage: never go to bed angry. In 12 years I’ve never slept in another bed because I was mad at my hubby. It’s BS IMHO. Get over yourself and talk about it, or just accept that you’ll be divorced soon.

          • OneMoreInBoston says:

            True- we have no idea what the financial arrangements in their house are. She could be justifying the plastic surgery as an investment to stay on RHOA which is what is now paying the bills.

    • T-Rex says:

      It’s called “couth” of which you WSL are well acquainted with, because you are a Lady, but most Reality Housewives are not. Of course when one is invited to a charity especially if the Table was already paid for, even more reason for you to Contribute! If the Charity or Charitable contributions are in question then why would you show up to begin with. Shunning an Event speaks volumes, if the Charity is not on the up and up!

  53. lillybee says:

    Phaedra is going to Agusta to have the baby. Why?

  54. Wall St Lady says:

    I agree Quincy.
    I am also not sure if Gregg did the cheating. Nene said 2Xs “what if there has been cheating ?” With NeNe’s uncontrollable behavior I can’t see her not shouting from the roof tops w/furry ,any transgression !
    Regardless I hope they make it for the sake of their son.

    • quincyil says:

      For their son and for themselves. As you get older if nice to have someone to go to dinner with and to take care of each other.

    in case I’m not the only one living under a rock: they’ve announced the 3 judges for Skating with the Stars: Dick Button, Johnny Weir, and some chick I never heard of who’s done choreo for Lady gaga.

      Wow, Dick Button. He’s been around forever. Not a big sense of humor; takes skating very seriously. He’ll probably have to lighten up for this show.

      The other judge is Laurieann Gibson. I remember her from “Making The Band” on MTV. She was Danity Kane’s choreagrapher.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        I like pawn stars, but don’t like the one overweight son. I love the old guy though!
        I haven’t fallen in love with the pickers yet. They have cool stuff but how come nothing pretty? always some gas station sign or something.

        • klmh says:

          I agree with your assessment of the overweight son. He has a bad attitude. But I love Chumlee! The grandfather is a lot of fun and reminds me of a relative of my husband’s and of course Rick is fun. I learn something along the way too.
          The stuff the Pickers collect is simply amazing to me. I just can’t believe they would buy the stuff at their price, let alone be able to sell it for double or triple their cost. Just amazing to see what people will buy and value. Another great learning experience. Im hoping I have a few of those things in my attic, but it hasn’t happened yet. My husband thinks I hoard, but I pale in comparison to some of these folks.

        • buffywood says:

          Do you know what I miss, hell it may even still be on. The American Roadshow on PBS. I swear one day I will find something valuable here at my barn.

      Why, yes. Yes it is. It’s the price of everything, isn’t it? I went to the grocery store yesterday afternoon to stock up for the week. The total came to $60,000.

    Just finished watching the Atlanta episode. How insane is Phaedrea hiring someone to help her pack for the hospital. Really? And bringing fancy underwear and lacy nightgowns. Why didn’t anyone clue her in to what childbirth is really like. You need granny panties from Sears or Walmart. You need sanitary napkins. Come on. Who are we kidding here. Anyone who has had a baby knows that. If that lady was a true friend she would have told her you bleed like a stuck pig for days afterward, c section or vaginal birth. So forget all that fancy stuff; it’s just going to get ruined. Can’t wait till next week to see how Phaedra handles the “real” thing.

  80. Adgirl says:

    @ winatlife. Are you still here??

    This is probably a great topic for when more people are on the board but I do want to tell you I am on my second marriage and very happy. We met online and dated for a long time before we married.
    I was with my 1st for over 15 yrs so I wasn’t a kid.

    I made myself a list of what I needed in a partner (not what I wanted!).
    Then I aimed myself at guys who matched those attributes.

    I believed one day one of these men I will fall in love with and he will fall in love with me!

  81. emily says:

    I don’t know about you guys but I don’t believe it was Sheree that paid the $1200 for the table.

    I don’t believe Sheree when she says she paid money for other people. I barely believe her when she says she “buys” things for herself (aston martin, uh huh yea)

    Seems like Sheree would have said (about the $1200 for her friends to come and watch): “oh well guess they can’t come” and BRAVO or the Dancing w/ ATL stars people said “No, no we HAVE to have the other housewives there.” and footed the bill.

    Remember these are the HWs that negotiated for Bravo to pay for hair/makeup and drivers so they don’t have to drink and drive.

    I agree with some of you who think Kim is in on the joke and I like it! She trashes it up for the camera b/c she knows it’s good tv (and it’s much easier to play herself than make up a fake personality), unlike Phakedra who hams it up in an effort to hijack the show and I am not a fan.

    • Adgirl says:

      I’m with you. I don’t think Sheree paid for the table either. I think the charity comped the table for her and were hoping the RH cast memebers would use it. That would boost event ticket sales.

      Sheree, Dwight and Gregg need to take lessons on what “buying” or “paying” means.

      • DarkSonnet says:

        I agree about the table being comped. If they didn’t comp it, then Bravo paid for it or worked some sort of deal for it. It had to be up front due to camera angles and to be as non disruptive as possible. Not everybody enjoys a camera in their face during charity based functions.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Bravo likely bought the table and made a donation so they could film. NeNe came in looking to make it about herself but Kim came up the real winner – bagging her next revenue source!

    Wayyy off topic but I wanted to THANK YOU all for the support today on Real City Housewives blog! She was great to defend me as well but so many of you popped over there in support of me and RCH…I really appreciate it!

    http://realcityhousewife.wordpress.com/

    Thank you to kmuellfa, LynnnSoCal, Colibrimoon, WindyCityWondering, cdnfillie58, Lovin’ this blog! , OneMoreInBoston, Boston02127, icantstandthetoxicity, housewifeaddict, Waxdiva, MickeyMouth, Dark Sonnet, TheDesignDiva, ImaJustSayin, TrueLifeDiva, Kat, Wall St Lady, RealMinkey, DutchessofDryerLint, Skinnykiss and, particularly to HadEnough! who came out of lurkerdom today and she had my back, I love you so much!!!

    If I missed anyone, I apologize, let me know and I’ll correct myself. I appreciate you all so much!

    • Adgirl says:

      Wow, Lynn you are the talk of the inter-twitter-net!!

      That’s because you are such a success!

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      Missed the fight and I don’t do twitter, but i’m glad the girls came out to defend you. You’ve given us a great place, where we read your blog and comment along with you. It seems the “professional” is jealous of the “amateur” with big ratings, doing big things. 🙂 Keep the blogs and the radio/podcasts coming Lynn. Your detractors will seethe with jealousy as you get ready for your close up and your fans give you a standing/sitting ovation! LOL

      • LynnNChicago says:

        Thanks Amber! I appreciate it and I”m glad you missed the fight, it was ugly and I wish I wasn’t there either 😦

        WindyCityWondering – Thanks!!! I’m with you, never understood trolls and never will. We have to get together someday!!!

        Thank you Noelle! :)xoxo

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Lynn, you have continued to provide a place many love to come to on a regular basis. For anyone to have a problem with that doesn’t make sense to many of us! If they hurt you, then they hurt us all. I don’t pretend to know why trolls exist or what they feel they will gain by their actions. I do know that together we will always be stronger than the flys that leave the dung heaps of their lives.

    Nancy cdnfillie58 klmh & scorpiosue one month Bo & Kats
    Thank you for ur kind words in the midst of a $h*t storm. U r a gracious & brave soul to stick ur neck out for me. I always seem to b gone when someone does a cannon ball in the wading pool.
    But truly, I hope I can return the favor, hopefully under better circumstances. Mean time;
    “Did I ever tell u ur my hero?”
    WSL singing loudly !

    • Adgirl says:

      WSL that was pretty funny tonight. I’m actually starting to enjoy the trollbursts. I don’t particpate much in those or the chatter on twitter or other sites about IHJZ because I hate to reward a sick mind.

      She sure had it in for you. I can’t imagine why. Maybe she is jealous that you are our Mary Poppins and Miss Manners rolled into one sparkly package!

      So, do you “know” this troll?

    • quincyil says:

      cannon ball in the wading pool is good.

      I used needing hip boots in the blog swamp…

      We both like water and muck….

    • housewifeaddict says:

      What in the world was that over on the other blog. WSL my hat off to you for staying calm through this latest storm. Holy cat ball there be some crazy in the koolaid last night.

      So in the end this is all about some p-off peeps who used to comment on this site, write competing blogs and get their panties in a wad over twitter. Boy oh boy I thought we had the real JZ here with us last week upset that you were schmoozing with S & A at the kiddos b-day party.

      Now what I REALLY want to know is – were you filmed last weekend, and did you have to sign a confidentially agreement (and is there a chance we’ll see you onscreen) – and is that why you didn’t blog what happened at the party? Just a wink wink will do.

    • scorpiosue1102 says:

      Anytime WSL. It’s amazing how threatened people get by successful people that are in the know. C’est la vie!

  84. Noelle says:

    Just caught up and just… WOW. I don’ t even know where to begin.

    @Lynn, You my love are pure grace.

    I’m not so…Suck it Haters! 😉

  85. JKW says:

    Hi ..anyone still here or did everyone go to bed. I have to stop coming so late.

  86. Adgirl says:

    I am finding it soooo funny (and fun!) that Lynn’s wildly successful blog is now the target of these idiotic people, such as Jenn Sales and the trollies.

    Do you think they hold weekly sessions on GoToMeeting.com to discuss the outrage de jour and plan troll attacks??

  87. Salish says:

    “and he exchanges phone numbers with the wig wearing, chain-smoking, gold digging most famous mistress in Atlanta.”

    So sad when you word it that way, but oh so true!!!! LLOLLLL

  88. JKW says:

    I think it’s great how threatened they all seem to be. It shows it is a success. I don’t know why they don’t just post things on their site. It shows how desperate they are when they come here and try to make trouble.

    • quincyil says:

      I look forward to the content of the blog and love the tangents that readers here follow into outer space.

  89. Adgirl says:

    Dang. I just read most of the posts on the RealCityHousewife site about the dust up by the other blogger whom I won’t name but rhymes with EnTrails.

    I swear I heard her (via her troll handle) accuse Lynn of calling her “insecure” before she muttered “I forgot my notes!”. I’m looking forward to watching her cheer at a Redskins game.

    • quincyil says:

      I looked over there as I wait for enough light to do chores. I think she got more than she hoped for. Taking her blog to the other site for dissection was a brilliant idea. She doesn’t get the hits, but she got the beating.

      I’m trying to think of how I can spend that Bravo magical number of 60 thousand dollars today. I need a couple of new sets of Christmas lights. That is about 10 dollars. It’s going to be a long day trying to spend all of those Bravo bucks.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        But Quincy, whatever you buy will add up to the magical $60,000 because you got such a good deal through your designers and contacts. It just happens!

      • klmh says:

        I can help if you like.

        • klmh says:

          Spending 60,000 that is. There is finally something on this blog thats mentioned that I’m good at, or could be, good at if just given the chance.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      She sure got a lot of attention. Perhaps that was what it was all about. Before the last couple of days I had read her stuff once, went eh because it added nothing to the discussion, and had forgotten about it. Oh wait – here I go – forgetting again. Back to housewives gawssip.

  90. ches says:

    Watched RHOBH again.
    Obviously Taylor has no concept of the size of her lips. So she really needs a few giudelines to help her recognize this.
    1. If people comment on your pink mustache, and you don’t have one… your upper lip is too big.
    2. If you have a bad cold, yet oddly your nose isn’t running because your lips are totally blocking off your nostrils…your lips are too big.
    3. If your 4 year old starts begging for some of those “wax candy lips” you’re chewing on, but you haven’t had “wax candy lips” in 35 years…your lips are too big.
    4. If you wear red lipstick to a party, and you hear people commenting about the baboon’s ass on your mouth…your lips are too big.
    This woman needs to get a clue!

    • Adgirl says:

      She is the sad clown alright.
      Taylor also has sized up the situation between the Richards sisters and Kelsey’s Wife (did you know she was married to Kelsey?) and has decided to throw her stick figure into “bringin on the drama”.
      This must mean she is desperate to A) be included in next season of RHBH and B) needs to secure a relationship with the filthy rich Camille.

      Ahhh run away from the filler/implants/binge & purging!

    • TheDesignDiva says:

      Oh my GOD…I am falling out of my chair LAUGHING MY ASS OFF…Just read it to the son and he is in tears..

      ALL FINGERS UP FOR YOU ON THIS ONE….

  91. TrillianAlice says:

    Lynn
    Always love your blog.
    I know I don’t post very much but I have some health problems that has caused my skills at writing to really decline. So, if my grammar, spelling and syntax are off that is why. It has been a difficult thing to accept. I never made the mistakes I made before I became sick. I just want you to know how much I love your blog and all our fellow posters.
    You are the best and I will be faithful and loyal for life. Thanks
    (I sound like a pet, oh well : )

  92. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @Kat
    Let me let you in on a secret. I subscribe to this blog and get the e-mail updates. That means every single post goes to my BB automatically. I was getting ready for work and as I grabbed my purse I heard my email ringtone. I clicked on it and the first I see is “GoToMeetingTroll”. I thought to myself, “oh shit…here we go again!” And began scrolling. The next thing on my screen was that crazy cat and I laughed so hard :-D. That was the best chuckle I’ve had in a minute. Did I ever tell you you crack me the fuck up? Oh yeah, I did earlier today 😉

  93. quincyil says:

    On twitter, Jen Sales stated that she doesn’t mind being compared to Kelly Bensimon because Kelly has a nice house and a couple of published books.

    I think I will just let her own statement stand.

    • Adgirl says:

      So, in EnnTrails mind that mean she is “up here”?

      Why does that out me in mind that hot gas rises …. hmmm.

      In other news:
      EnnTrails is rolling around on her hotel bed in tears “Why did Lynn give me that monogrammed gift bag?? Why? Why? I don’t understand why she is doing this to me….? (sob)”.

    I stayed up all night to watch Diana’s funeral procession. Very moving.

  95. OneMoreInBoston says:

    Well.

    Where shall I even begin?

    I’ve been learning quite a bit over the last few days about the blogging world. It really is quite interesting from a business standpoint.

    Years ago I was a recruiter for stockbrokers. I remember that the most successful stockbrokers I ever recruited, the big 5-10M producers, were also the nicest guys in the world. While the little measley 200K a year brokers were always real pricks to me.

    When I asked my boss and mentor- why is that? He explained that success in life is really all about building relationships.

    When other bloggers have closed comment sections there is no way of reaching them. Which is what they want. They don’t want to be bothered with us, the hoipolloi.

    Yet Lynn’s comments are open and she forms relationships with her posters, not to further herself, but because she is a genuine person.

    Isn’t it interesting that is what makes her successful, while these other bloggers are just green eyed with envy, yet waste their time with “trolling” her site.

    I also think that WSL, in helping Lynn to raise capital has also raised the ire of jealous bloggers who feel in competition with Lynn. She has become quite a lightening rod for controversy.

    Lynn, you have provided me with a wonderful place to go, and WSL you have brought nothing but love and light to the conversation. I am grateful both of you are here, and distressed that either one of you are being attacked.

    Sending you both, and all on this blog, love.

    • Adgirl says:

      OneMore, You are an extremely important part of the success of this blog too. The humor and warmth expressed in the blog by Lynn and the posts by you, WSL, Quincy and many others have generated the loyalty of posters and the community atmosphere here at IHJZ.

      That brings out the nasty in all of those other bloggers who haven’t nurtured their site the way Lynn has tended hers. Even the “professionals” who are highly esteemed (in their own eyes) haven’t figured out the basic attribute of this site is the collegiate environment that has sprung up. It’s like Lynn gave us the platform for our own version of the Tea Party. Lynn provides the opening blog and chases away the bedbugs and then lets US drive the discussion. That’s because she treats us like grown ups!
      OneMore, you and all of the other regulars who post awesome remarks here are both welcoming and vigilante at the same time, so we all feel “safe” here.

      I love this site because it is more than about RH, it’s about us.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        Sort of a whole new blog model in a way…sort of a chat room, a discussion group, a support system. Quite revolutionary.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          Maybe that’s why all of the other bloggers are so pissed off.

          • Adgirl says:

            They are pissed off because their blogs are really about Them so there is no “stickyness” (that’s a big ole internet term for viewers who hang out alot on a site) on the their sites.
            We are sticky here because of the openess and variety of converstaion.

      • scorpiosue1102 says:

        I really don’t get closing comments on a blog……then why have a blog? A blog is about free speech yet by closing comments the blogger is essentially saying, “What I have to say is WAY more important than what you have to say.” Kind of makes that freedom a joke. Tip to bloggers: you need to have thick skin. You may not like everything that comes your way, but that is the blogging business. Now, I also believe that a blogger has the right to not allow swearing if they so choose, no attacks on people and delete troll comments. Basically I don’t think comments should be abusive.

        All of this is why I like Lynn’s blog. Sometimes I don’t agree with her assessment of reality shows (i.e. Morgan on Top Chef Desserts…I just can’t hate him for some reason) yet Lynn let’s us disagree with her and it’s OKAY. Mwah to Lynn.

      • cusi77 says:

        Adgirl_ So true….

      • quincyil says:

        One day, I mentioned to Lynn that this blog could be an umbrella. I think of it as a point from which lines radiate.

        I think it is a return to the freedom on the net that many of us had in the beginning before scifi/SyFy clamped down on their boards.

        This reminds me of the Old West where chaos reigned. There are simple rules. Be respectful of each other. The community self regulates and amazingly stays on topics that come from the original blog, Bravo, and articles that have linked concepts.

        If someone starts a thread here. It grows or shuts down because it is of interest or not of interest. No one is shutting it down. That is a powerful way of interacting. It empowers board members and the blog owner. You can tell the model is successful because there are over a million hits.

        Frankly, I did not know that some people were being paid to blog. I thought people like Perez Hilton owned the site and got advertising dollars. I also don’t care. It doesn’t impress me on little bit. If there is insider information from the stars, it’s probably controlled by PR people and of little interest to the public.

        Paid bloggers are not more respected on the Planet Earth than unpaid bloggers. I pay attention to the news and in general, those fancy news people don’t like bloggers entering into their domains. LOL.

        There are no buggy whip factories anymore. Times change… Be open and supportive of change…

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          Blogging has become a big business for some. It is a way to earn enough money to devote your time to the blog itself.

          There are even Dummies books, How to Start Your Own Blog Business.

          But just like when Burger King opens up next to McDonald’s everyone is trying to defend their own turf. And when in doubt…follow the $$$.

          Lynn has a unique and extraordinary situation here, because no one controls the content. Even she doesn’t. The only time anything gets deleted is if it slams someone else or is laden with profanities. Otherwise she lets it roll along to it’s own conclusions.

          She could possibly turn this into something bigger than it is now. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

          Other bloggers that read the How to Get Rich at Blogging books are following the rules, but are not having anywhere near the same success that she is. And now they’re mad. Why not them?

          Lynn’s a maverick. So is WSL. They’re a good team, and it threatens the poop out of the other bloggers.

          Which is why you’re hearing comments about professionals vs. nonprofessionals. Because they are trying to discredit and marginalize Lynn’s success.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Thank you. I couldn’t really put my finger on what drew me back here after the first time. It’s more than the freedom to gawssip about our favorite and least favorite HWs. It’s that I’m getting to know everyone, and we’ve like a big old dysfunctional family.

      But this whole underbelly twitter – dysfunctional housewives – dina – kim g – jill z – crazed fan world is also fascinating to me. What is driving folks to go crazy over this blog and Lynn. What is being posted here that is so scary to them? I keep feeling that WSL has stumbled onto something that they are terrified of – but what????

      I guess I’ll keep coming back until I figure it out – so thank you crazy trollers for making me more addicted to this site than ever before!!!!!

  96. cusi77 says:

    Housewifeaddict_ I have a theory now about Lynn’s trolls:

    Green with E-N-V-Y!

    I sincerely pity them. No ONE of them have accomplished what Lynn Hudson has.

    They attack WSL because they know how much loved in this Blog she is . Most of us know who she is… She is the REAL DEAL, but what is fascinating about her is her inner beauty and witty personality…. therefore they attack Lynn trough WSL.

    Just jealousy, dear, plain jealousy.

    The sad part about last night troll attack is that that lonely FLY was one of us! With obviously, FLY brain size and envious.

    • American Idiot says:

      “that lonely FLY was one of us” – Cusi – do you mean the troll last night was someone who regularly posts here? On Lynn’s blog?

      • cusi77 says:

        I do not know for sure. But she was talking about WSL like she was regularly reading her comments…. I realized that later, therefore I beleive she use to be a regular here and has a grudge with Lynn or WSL.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          After reading RCH late night – I agree Cuzi – and it makes me sad because they were fun, witty and good posters here.

          • American Idiot says:

            Ah, I see now, Cusi and WCW, how you came to that conclusion. Thanks for answering. (Ihave some thoughts on who it might be, but I’m keeping them to myself)

  97. AZ Girl says:

    @OMiB — Hope you survived the attack last night. Sorry about running up and down the basement stairs. That was a very interesting troll (who needs to fix their ALL CAPS key) 🙂

    • cusi77 says:

      AZ_ to hide her identity and foul us with that troll with the pink avatar that weeks ago came attacking that girl who knew the Manzo’s family… She was cleaner (the FLY) everytime she typed “you” was without caps….

  98. American Idiot says:

    Lisa Wu and her husband were developing a clothing line called “Closet Freak” during one of the Atlanta seasons. Same name as Kandi’s song?

    Cynthia was not wearing her engagement ring while shopping for wedding gowns. Probably filmed out of sequence?

    NeNe was not wearing her wedding ring at the charity dancing event.

    Kim looks like she wears and engagement and wedding ring on her left hand.

    What hand are you supposed to wear your engagemeng ring on? No one seemed to know at Cynthia’s apartment.

    • Adgirl says:

      I was wondering if the film was flopped at Cynthia’s apartment (so the ring appeared on the “wrong” hand). I’ve seen that before on Bravo.

      • DarkSonnet says:

        Didn’t Cynthia question whether the ring was being placed on the correct hand and he insisted that it was?

        I found this very odd at the time. I wondered if he was so impressed with the ring that he wanted to make sure the camera got a good closeup of it.

        That whole scene was weirdly uncomfortable. I kept repeating WTH throughout the whole fiasco.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Was also wondering about “Closet Freak” as Lisa’s clothing line now recycled into a song title for Kandi’s work with Lawrence….maybe Bravo owns the rights to anything created on the show???

  99. error404 says:

    Has Bravo changed it’s policy? Almost every single comment to Taylor’s blog is negative.. and by negative I mean truthful. lol Everybody seems to think she started the fight, should have kept her mouth shut, and should stop trying to blame Kim for what she in fact did. Ouch.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      LOL! I stopped reading the Bravo blog comment section because it is always very slanted. I read what the ladies have to say and leave.

      • BessiB says:

        I’ve stopped reading Bravo blogs, period. I figure if there is anything of interest, it would be mentioned here. Thanks, error404.

    • AZ Girl says:

      I noticed that also. Comments on Camille’s blog are all negative.

  100. Adgirl says:

    I have to confess (lean over close so I can whisper to you) I am obsessed with witnessing other people’s obsessions!
    I guess I’m just a shallow person who harbors a huge streak of Schadenfreude (that’s the handy way of saying I delight in the misfortunes, meltdowns & fuckups of others).
    So, to me the troll-athons are immense fun. The added dimension of wondering if the trolls are RH cast members, competing bloggers or lonely citizens with unhealthy fixations on other posters just compounds the fun!!
    I have the time to be a troll – but can’t fathom why I, or anyone should be one. Has caller ID ruined their prank phone call career? Are they too lazy to buy spray paint to mark up a fence in their neighborhood? Maybe they don’t have a dog so leaving burning bags on the neighbor’s porch has lost its fun.
    Whatever it is about us, and them, it keeps me entertained for sure!

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      Schadenfreude is my new word of the day.

    • error404 says:

      like slasher films and sci-fi books, I’d rather just give it a pass. I’ll never ever understand the whole “negative attention is better than no attention” mentality.. just do something positive to be admired for! Duh. But these people, and unfortunately they exist in real life as well, just wreak havoc on everyone’s life and health just because they are bored or feeling neglected, or just because they can.

  101. Wall St Lady says:

    American Idiot
    I remember always hearing u wear wedding rings on ur left hand because that is the side where ur heart is !

    • American Idiot says:

      Thanks, WSL, I wear mine on my left hand. For some reason I could not remember what hand I wore my engagement ring on before I was married.

  102. Wall St Lady says:

    I have a new name for our troll

    Rodent woman

  103. skogsstig says:

    De-lurking again…
    Lynn – Thanks for this blog, for so many different reasons! I’m not sure “blog” is an adequate description. Maybe it is, though. Maybe this is what a blog is *supposed*to be like, and a great many other blogs just do not measure up to this standard. I’ve been a one-time visitor to other sites, but this is where I return.

    I seem to always miss the beginning of the troll incidents. By the time I get here, the vigilant Lynn seems to have deleted the initial posts. I’m not complaining, just admiring the way Lynn and the troll slayers work.

    Having grown up with trolls in Scandinavian folk tales, I learned that sun shine is the best dispatcher of trolls: it turns them into stone. Here, too, the trolls seem to come out at night. And many of you are good at bathing them in sun light. 😉

  104. AZ Girl says:

    I don’t have a twitter account so I was out of the loop on the tweets. Personally, I feel that Twitter has evolved into venue that generates a lot of nastiness. IMHO.

    • Adgirl says:

      I just cannot be bothered with all of that vomit on twitter. Ugh.

      • quincyil says:

        DMs seem to be a source of discontent.

        I think that everyone of the people involved were good friends who had a disagreement. Sides were taken and because of the nature of twitter and the number of people in the mix, no resolution was made in Sept., Oct. and Nov. I would say that 3 months is long enough for most people to hold a grudge. You don’t have to forget, but ignoring is a option that should be considered.

        I actually remember the posts of many of the combatants and I think they are intelligent. If I was a fairy godmother, I would be shooting fairy dust into cyberspace hoping to let people know that this too will pass. You can make a suggestion or complain and the person on the receiving end has to make decisions. I wish I had a dime for everytime that I was absolutely sure I was right and my request was ignored. I’d buy the 60,000 dollar Astin Martin in the auction and drive it in a city where people had heard of Astin Martins.

        I’ve been working on a time machine. If I get it up and running, this is going to be removed from our timeline. Now, where am I going to get the power to make my machine work without destroying our Sun. Don’t worry…. I won’t do anything crazy…

    • BessiB says:

      And advertising!

  105. Adgirl says:

    OK I tried commenting about something 3x and it’s not here so it will probably explode onto this page later. There are no links but maybe it’s because I used that big long german word for enjoying the misery of others (the trolls). Sorry in advance if it arrives here in multiples.

  106. Adgirl says:

    I was thinking about why Kandi continues to work with Kim (and why she is also working with the more talented hairdresser guy). Bravo gets a piece of merchandise that is developed by way of the show so she can’t be seen working with outside legit artists and Bravo will promote the songs she does with the Bravo cast. Kandi will get her concert tour promoted by Bravo as long as she drags along Kim.
    Plus Kim is a great gimmick.

    • oldcrone says:

      I think you are absolutely right about this.
      I have been wondering why in the world Kandi would waste her time on Kim, especially after Kim didn’t pay her for Tardy. I thought maybe Bravo forced it, but I couldn’t figure out why Kandi would agree.

      But that makes perfect sense what you said about showing legit artists on the show, and Kim being a gimmick.

  107. DarkSonnet says:

    Due to the increased frequency of “fire starters” dropping in lately, it might be a good idea to become a tad more proactive.

    Although we are normally quite well prepared for these visits, it can get hectic at times. (Last night we only had one tin/foil hat provider and it was impossible to sustain the demand)

    Since we have “frequent fire” in here, we should consider taking advantage of it.

    Soooo…. over there >>>>>> on a shelf you will find an unlimited supply of:

    1. LoubouTINS (foil hats lined with red silk because classy people deserve this)

    2. All the ingredients needed for S’Mores

    3. Skinny Girl Margaritas (Slight flaw here, we have no glasses so it may be necessary for each of us to grab their own bottle… sorry.)

    Let the visits continue. We have circled our campfire and we are prepared.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      LoubouTINS !

      OMG just luvs it!

      • Adgirl says:

        Yes! Yes! And we need DRILLS!
        Like everyday we will file out of the office single file wearing our LoubouTINS and clutching out SG bottles (mine has a straw!). Who wants my marshmellows? I’ll just have the chocolate bars.

      DarkSonnet, you thought of everything! How wonderful!

    • klmh says:

      Perfect way to put those fires out. Love your suggestion and have the hat ready. Am out of the door to buy schmellows.

    • LynnnSoCal says:

      Strength in numbers! Love the image of the LynnFam in red lined tin. Rocky Rodent beware! Crazy what ire Miss Andy has inspired with the kookoo housewives. You ladies rock!

    I once complimented Mama Lynn for all the baby blogers she not only welcomed but sponsored their new blogs with links and compliments. I was very impressed w/this display of unselfish encouragement !
    (Ooops I hope the rodents don’t
    Bite)(don’t worry I have rodent repellent on my belt now)
    I can remind u that IBM doesent compliment or post links to their competitors sites !

    Rodent woman was one of these baby blogs that unfortunately didn’t make it even though Lynn sent people to the blog very regularly. As a matter of fact many many of u alerted LynnFam of new posts & even more of u posted w/nothing but compliments fot the blog; I did too.
    Rodent woman is not just attacking me & Lynn but she is disrespecting the entire LynnFam.
    I could say all kind of things about the trolls behavior but u have all seen it for yourself.

    • viki55 says:

      Just poking my head up, foil hat intact just incase….there is so much going on with Twitter and behind the scenes that I can’t even pretend to know what is going on or attempt to keep up with the drama. I did go and read the comments on the other blog and feel like you & Lynn are so very lucky to have such great backing! But I have to say, as for the rodent, and knowing I don’t know all that you do, I always enjoyed her post & stories and I don’t see where she attacked the entire LynnFam. Did she really do that?

    • scorpiosue1102 says:

      Ahhhhh…. I think I know who Rodent Woman is now.

  109. JazzNightOut says:

    I missed all the drama. I wish I had been here for one reason only: to say I support WSL and Lynn in the troll’s face. REALLY LOUDLY.

    New York’s housewife superstar (blech)

    The Real Housewives’ Jill Zarin, fresh from cleaning out her closet of friends, finds herself in a very good place, writes Colin Vickery

    http://www.heraldsun.com.au/ipad-application/new-yorks-housewife-superstar/story-fn6cc2jw-1225954562360

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Well are we at all surprised that Jill is already into her whole having sides? So she is claiming LuAnn and Kelly – no surprise there. Ramona is a friend/enemy, Alex is a disappointment and Sonja will bite….Did this woman every get over being picked last for the dodgeball team????

    • error404 says:

      It amazes me that with all of the time she’s had to try and repair her image, she just keeps making things worse. She really is an amateur.

      I won’t begrudge the loser her right to eat sour grapes, but it’s been too long to still be chewing on them, and she’s only digging the hole deeper by denying all responsibility in what happened.

      Even if we were to assume that Bravo purposefully chose to hold up B at her expense, which is so far fetched it’s silly, she’s not moving forward in a positive manner by crying foul. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.

      Also, her summation that the friendship didn’t survive the fake feud (wink, wink) because it wasn’t genuine, rather than understanding that she crossed a line and went too far.. well, it shows her to be an illogical thinker IMHO.

      Nene is a great example of damage control after a season that slipped from her control. Jill just doesn’t get it.

      The only think I take away from the interview is that clearly she has no desire to win us all back. She’ll take her 5 remaining fans and play with them alone, thank you.

    • buffywood says:

      Why does she ever open her mouth. If I ever forget why I hate Jill Zarin I just have to read one of her interviews. Honestly, even if I had no idea of who this person was being interviewed I would still think to myself “Wow this woman is really a bitch”.

    • Debbie says:

      OMG! I hate her sooooo much!!!! She is such a nasty bitch. “I’m famous”

    • BessiB says:

      “I had a fight with Bethenny which I thought was a “wink, wink” fight…” WTF?

      It must be a slow news day in Australia. She was there about a month ago, right?

  112. 2Stupid says:

    Good day everyone, time for my conspiracy corner. I finally got to see the RHBH last night and it occurred to me something about Kyle and Camille. It is almost exactly like Bethenny and Kiki? Has anyone else noticed that (where is Olivia when you need her!)? I started wandering if Bethenny had given her tips how to play Camille and come out the cast favorite since they used to be friends. It just seemed so familiar. Anyway, my two cents……

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      hmmm…I’ll have to look again at that.

      • HD says:

        It reminded me of Bethanny and Kelly as well. The whole I’m up here conversation. Camille I am sure is lying well…I can’t even say she is lying, I believe in her mind she thinks she heard Kyle say those things. She is delusional. I deal with someone like this daily and it is like you damn near have to have a tape recorder on you to record and playback the REAL conversation.

  113. cdnfillie58 says:

    Both posters that attacked Lynn and WSL on RCH’s blog last night had been regular posters here until each perceived a slight made to them by Lynn, one on here and the other on Twitter. I did follow them on Twitter until today, and I’m sure they will likely block me on theirs now if they come back and read this, and I really don’t care if they do. What they showed last night was disgusting and uncalled for. My 13 yr old grand daughter would have risen above this shit…shame on both of you

    • buffywood says:

      Speaking of your 13 year old granddaughter how is she doing? I’ve been thinking about her the past few days. I have a 13 year old daughter it is important to remind your granddaughter that EVERYONE at that age is picked on for some reason or another. The slightest “flaw” will be jumped on, the slightest insecurity will be exploited; and when neither of those exist the kids will just make stuff up. Remind your granddaughter that people that pick on her feel in their hearts that your granddaughter is better than them in some way and the bullying is their attempt to bring her down and boost themselves up. The only thing she can control in this whole situation is her own reaction. Tell her to keep her head high. I tell my daughter to say to herself “To hell with them they are SO not worth it”.

      • cdnfillie58 says:

        aw thanks Buffywood…she’s fine. Like I said she internalizes alot but I think she learned that lesson long ago…her mother is doing a good job with her and I fill in the blanks when needed. So all around, she knows the important people in her life have her back

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      I have been over there today. I don’t want to bring over the negative karma, but I know they both are lurkers here.

      I have tried to be patient, I have tried to be kind, I have tried to look at this situation from their point of view, and still…nothing.

      I have heard all of their arguments, and waited for the smoking gun, you know the ONE piece of evidence that makes you suck in your breath and say “aha!”, and still… nothing.

      I have read their accusations of both Lynn and WSL and asked pertinent questions, hoping against hope that there wasn’t anything to substantiate their claims and still… nothing.

      I***really ***tried to be impartial, and give two of my onetime favorite posters a fair shake. All in all, there just seems to so much anger over…what?… nothing.

      • cdnfillie58 says:

        my thoughts too OMIB….I could tell something was up with them from their T/L on Twitter…didn’t think it was leading up to that last night tho. The attacks on Lynn and WSL and basically calling us idiots for “allowing ourselves to be braiwashed” by them was probably the biggest insult I’ve ever been given since I don’t know when. I’m sure they don’t care how I feel but it made me sad.

      • quincyil says:

        They were both on my favorite list too. All I know is you don’t do or say things when you are angry or upset. It just leads to more trouble.

      • DarkSonnet says:

        I thought you were attempting to be very fair.

        I am not familiar with the back story concerning these posts but that was just uncomfortable on many levels.

  114. Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

    So, is it safe to come up for air now? I have read RCH comments and I am, I must admit, more confused than ever. Then again, perhaps that is par for the course.
    I believe only 1 man assassinated JFK. I believe 9/11 was an attack by terrorists and not a government plot to take away our rights. I believe red M&M’s are fine in moderation. I believe sugar and corn syrup are essentially the same. In short, I am NOT a big conspiracy theorist. Conspiracy makes my head hurt.
    I live a little life, in a little suburb. I get up every day and feed my dogs, cat and fish. I try to make my husband’s paycheck and my unemployment (while it lasts) stretch far enough to cover the rent and all. I study hard to finish school and get my resume out daily to try and rejoin the work place and ease some of the financial burden. I pray daily for patience and fortitude. I take care of my ailing Father-In-Law. I clean and cook and try to be the best Wife, Step-Mother, Friend, Sister, Daughter etc. I can be.
    And I come here.
    I come because it is a light moment in my day. Snarking on the housewives, sympathizing with others in similar boats with mine, drawing support and comradeship from the best damn group of women I have ever come across online.
    I do NOT give a rodent’s belly button for all the drama and who is impersonating who and doing what. I graduated high-school 25 years ago and I did not allow myself to get swept up in that crap THEN! Twitter, facebook, rival bloggers—What the hell is going on.
    This is a fun place to be. The posters are great. I will continue to come here for those reasons. The rest of it I don’t know about and can’t figure out. CoyoteeFlower, Squirrels, Otay, Laura(just done) and all the rest are a confusing jumble to me. Trolls vs. Titans and all the innuendo and outing and the rest of the crap is just getting in the way of the good thing we have here. I have tried to stay out of it. Then I tried to ask relevant questions to figure out what was going on. Now I am out of it again. If someone wants to post a full account of what the hell is going on then I will read it. I, like many others here (I believe) don’t twitter or email or talk to the principals behind the scenes so many of the posts over the last few weeks make no sense to me.
    I love you all, each and everyone, for the support and the humor you give me. I will continue to love each of you for that. Maybe that is all we need to do.

    • American Idiot says:

      DDL – I agree with every single word you have written here. I am not on Twitter, I don’t know who people are in real life, I don’t e mail anyone here or there.

      I just come to read about reality TV and see what’s up with the housewives. I enjoy it. I hope it continues. I don’t want to battle another blog; I can’t keep up with who the trolls are. I dislike when they come; but I appreciate everyone who keeps this board sane.

    • HD says:

      Amen and Amen! I read all that stuff last night and I thought, really? I mean really? Over a blog. People need to calm down. But I do know how the internet world is. I know a woman in a forum who HATES me. I don’t care what I say in the forum she HATES ME! She is nuts. The strange part is, she lives in my city and wants me to meet her so she can fight me. People completely take the internet WAY to seriously!

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        You better wear her OUT!! LMAO

        Don’t you dare let her challenge you like that *laughing hard*! Go meet her she may have a wig that you can shift or be a twit you can outwit! 🙂

      • Adgirl says:

        Run from the crazies HD!!!

      • American Idiot says:

        HD – Maybe she is from Paterson. (Only joking, but I remember you said you are from NJ, me too.)

    • 2Stupid says:

      I am confused slightly about Squirrels. I really enjoyed her posts. I know she got upset about the guest blogger using derogatory terms regarding children with mental handicaps. I read her chapters on her blogs and they would bring tears to my eyes. I was very startled to find out she was being grouped in with those other people because I remember how ugly some of Laura’s and Otay’s posts got. I also remember Lynn being very tolerant for quite a while. It is very unsettling that grown women resort to name calling and acting out. IMO Twitter does not bring out the best in people. In full disclosure I don’t Tweet so this is an outsider’s perspective.

  115. Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

    Hey Lynn,
    Did I wind up in Spam ? LOL! Could you check for me? Thanks

  116. Adgirl says:

    As for Camille vs Kyle, I’m sure it hasn’t escaped anyone’s attention here that Camile is attacking the woman who is prettier than her.
    Camille is suppose to be the alpha-whore.
    She cannot be overshadowed!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Camielle wants to be the center square and thinks taking out Kyle will get her that coveted seat. Unfortunately, she has no idea that Lisa will never let that happen!

    • error404 says:

      In Camille’s mind? I find it hard to argue that the other 4 are less attractive than Camille, who I don’t find in the least bit pretty at all. Even behind all of the scary surgery, you can tell that Taylor was once OK local beauty pageant pretty.

  117. ramonacoaster says:

    I’m missing out on all the happenings and trolls and stuff. Maybe I’m better off. So what’s going on with Brad Goreski? It kind of shocked me watching WWH that he left Rachel Zoe. I don’t think RZ Project would be the same without Brad. I didn’t think he had the same work ethic that Taylor had but he was definitely much more fun. I hope Bravo snaps him up and gives him his own show.

    • error404 says:

      I bet he will get his own show, especially since by conspiracy theory loving side insists that Bravo found him and made RZ hire him just so her show wouldn’t be so mind-numbingly dull.

      I can’t imagine what the show will be without him, RZ and Rodger whining together on how hard it is to be rich parents with a house full of staff to actually raise the kid. Might as well just merge her show with RHoBH, as TRZP doesn’t really have nay more plot than any one of the HWs.

  118. Thanks very much for the link to my blog! You’ve been on my blogroll since I started, because I’ve been subscribing to your blog for a long time. 🙂

    I ran into Brielle on YouTube right after Season One of RHOA. She had posted videos of herself with some friends, apparently alone at home after dark, shaking their rear ends like there was no tomorrow. I told her it was dangerous to post videos like that at her age, and asked her if her mom knows about it, and she said yes. I explained to her that there are all kinds of dangerous people on the internet, they all know or can easily find out where she lives since her mom is on a reality show, and that she needs to cut the shit. She told me thanks for my concern, but I got the distinct impression that I was actually hearing from Kim.

    The videos didn’t stop though, so I reported her account to YouTube for her own protection.

    So I realize she wants to take up for her mom, but I think her main motive t is that she thrives on attention herself.

    Anyhoo, thanks again for the link!
