Thank you QuincyIL for this fantastic blog on The Fashion Show!

The Fashion Show Week Two

“Just another Dramatic Asian Queen”

The two teams are taken to South Street Seaport for an exhibition on the Human body. Fashion is about movement and the structure of the external Human body has always been a constant, now Iman wants the teams to examine the inner body and draw their inspiration for the collections and shows from this subject. After taking photos, the teams return and have 45 minutes to come up with their ideas and create the collections.

Team Blue/ House of Nami

The members claim to have ESP while working. The plan is to work from flesh tone/white to red of blood and organs and back to bone white. Their boards reflect the colors, and potential designs that appear to work as one. The members seem to know where they are headed.

Green Team/ House of Emerald Chaos.

Calvin wants to discuss nuclear holocaust and the other members would like to pick a color for the collection. They fail to have anything for Isaac in their 45 minutes of work. Isaac asked them to pick a team leader and Jeffry is chosen. He grew up in a family of 12 so he can work with the devil and saints. They have a budget of 500 dollars for five pieces of their collection.

Twist for the week Issac returns and tells the teams that each piece needs to have something reversible. They all look shocked.

Now, we watch the members of both teams try to create their piece while working with the group members.

Team Blue members really support each other, but Mike (witnessed hundreds of fashion shows all over the planet) is stuck trying to get his concept off the drawing on a piece of paper. He tries to change his cloth with dyes and shrinks it. He tries to use strings to attach to his cloth and then tries to make them fall on fabric to look like strings on cloth…Nothing works including Mike.  He has nothing.

Eduardo wants his pleats to look like ribbing and he does a great job. His color choices on his model are excellent. His workmanship is excellent.

Cesar uses ribbons to make the capillary system with a color change from that flows down the dress that fits the collection color theme. The team members are worried about Mike. He is distressed and throws together a make shift mini dress that the model can’t fit in. She holds it up in the fitting for the show design plan session. Mike cuts his piece up, throws it in the garbage and leaves the competition. The other members create a sixth gown with leftover pieces so that their collection will have the six pieces required. They make comments about Mike, but he’s long gone and won’t hear their comments until he watched the show last night.

Team Green members are working individually but the seams of their group are pulling apart. Jeffry tries to deal with Calvin who exits to his own planet and works with amazing speed to create new fashion. His piece melds with Jeffries in design and color. Tamara likes the shape of the body and loves very plain designs which upset the other women on the team. They insist that she add some pleats to her dress and she resists, but gives in at the last moments. That change affects her design adversely.

Hair Make up

This weekly feature shows our advertisers in a good light.

The Fashion Show Blue/ House of Nami

We have designs based on veins, female genitals, and fluffy muscles. This week’s goal of showing inner workings of Human body, check. The color pallet is excellent according to Isaac. There is a basic color theme and variants. The sixth piece created at the last moment works with the collection. They are chosen as the winner this week. Eduardo’s piece is chosen over Cesar’s capillary piece as the winner. Caser said that Eduardo is the silent Peruvian and we have to watch out for him. Eduardo gets an extra hour of work time on the next project and 500 dollars extra if he in the finale.

Green/ House of Emerald

They have five pieces, one with pins in the back and a hem dropping down in front (Tamara.) There color is dark red which actually was close to the color of oxygenated blood. There is a rib/pleating theme in place in many pieces. One looks at the spine and is given credit for an incredible back. The front of this piece had pleating that was out of place and odd. Tamara was encouraged forcefully to change her piece at the last moment. That change affected her design and was the judges pointed that change out as not acceptable. Jeffry and Calvin’s pieces won accolades.

Another Twist in the Plot The judges don’t send a member of the losing team home this week because Mike of the winning team walked out. They realize that Team Blue can’t function so Calvin is sent to Team Green. Team Green has to give up a member and Cesar volunteers after no one else volunteered. This is going to change the dynamics next week.

Millionaire Matchmaker – by Quincy IL
Patti Stanger  “Flying DJ’s and a Danielle Staub look alike”

This week begins with Patti wearing a silk (possible cheap satin,) bright pink blouse and a too small dark jacket.  I believe the clothes were purchase last year when Patti was twenty pounds lighter because nothing she wears is fitting this season or I just don’t know NYC fashions.  We begin the show with Patti screaming at three employees because they offer two female  millionaires for the same show.  Patti is not pleased with either of the women.

Stacy is Danielle  Staub.  She is from New Jersey and has four children.  She loves to dance (provocatively.)  She is an actress (no mention of a gig,) a hostess (no mention of a show or restaurant,) and a model (Patti makes a pose because she doesn’t believe this claim.)  Stacy, like Danielle, has dark hair, a great feature for a 46 year old mother of four ranging from 21 to 10 years of age, and a face like a Greek mask.  No facial muscles on this mom moves thanks to the magic powers of Botox.  I bet fillers help make her look like Danielle too. Stacy doesn’t think she has a problem with men.  She has been divorced for 3 years and admits to living off of alimony and child support.  She loves to bake, but doesn’t eat the baked foods. Stacy loves to paint and the fine arts.  She loves charities too.  Patty thinks Stacy is off and needs a session with a crystal on her head.  Stacy is told to put her issues in a balloon that is tied to her body with an umbilical cord.  At the end, of the discussion where Stacy argues that she has no issues, she refuses to cut the umbilical cord and keeps the balloon full of issues. Patti needs a special date for Stacy and that should make all of the difference.

Sky is an ex super model who works as an international DJ flying from city to city to city every week.  She has a fantastic NYC apartment. Sky has dated celebrities.  Sky is 39 and because her younger brother had a baby (nice trick if he really did have that baby.)  Sky refuses to settle down for any length of time to find a nice stable guy so Patti’s maternal instinct kicks in and she doubts Sky’s ability to be a mom.  Oh, Sky like Beth of last week, loves shoes.

Cattle Call

Breaking News… a totally straight male mixer at Millionaire Matchmaker and Patti wants to play too. The MM team interview straight guys and Patti has fun asking them to take off their shirts to show their muscles.  They bring back one of Beth’s (fake professional poker player from last week) possible dates from last week because he is a mergers and acquisitions expert.   We meet Kevin.  Wow.  He’s a model, host, and the descendent of a god.  Patti swoons for Kevin.


This mixer was traditional for Patti’s business. It was in a bar with a two drink minimum.  The men tried to connect with the women, but the women were visiting other planets.  One artist who plans, in reality, to make art in space, failed to reach the ladies, but he did try to bring them closer to the Earth’s orbit.  Sky stated that she felt like meat with cannibals.  Stacy thought several made eye contact and she thought the men were interested in her. (Shades of Danielle Staub were in this mixer.)

Patti asked Sky about the men.  None of the men in the mixer were good enough for Sky so Patti offers Kevin, the demigod, as her date and Sky accepts.  Now, Patti talks to Stacy and Stacy doesn’t like any of the men at the mixer.  She asks for Kevin, the demigod who she actually met before he had to leave for the photo shoot in the Hamptons.  This turns into the Kevin show.  Kevin agrees to date both women (I bet he does a lot of this) and report back to Patti.

The Dates

Sky breaks the rules and creates the date with Kevin asking him to fly down alone to Miami for an early morning breakfast and noon tennis game is the boiling sun and 100% humidity.  She informs Kevin that she really can not slow down and stay in the same place for more than a few days. This is going to be very hard on that baby who will be packed in a little dog carrier and pushed under Sky’s seat on the private jet.

Kevin has to leave that date early and fly to Barbados to meet Stacy for the special date that Patti has planned.  The hotel is fantastic.  The ride is the mini submarine to look at fish is fantastic. Kevin is fantastic. Stacy has not returned to Planet Earth from Planet Stacy.

Final Interview

Sky, Stacy and Kevin are in the interview with Patti.  Kevin is magnificent as would be expected from a demigod.  Sky will not change her fabulous life of travel and dating celebrities.  Kevin does not want to date Stacy. Stacy believes she has no issues and really thinks she is attractive to men.  Patti says that both Stacy and Sky were pains in the ass.

Score…0 and 0

Lynn:  Thank you so much Quincy for these GREAT blogs, you do such an amazing job every week with these two shows!  Thanks again for Patti’s score, I think we’re now at Zero for 10 potential matches?  That “extremely high success rate” is a bit questionable, isn’t it?  haha

Until Next Time…

      Remember when she originally claimed to have a “99% success rate”? So easily disproved via her own show she had to reduce it to “extremely high”…which is still obviously false.

    • winatlife says:

      Last? I hope Quincy sees this post – Loved the recap. I have never read a recap without watching the show before…

      I will never watch MM again, and I have the Fashion Show on TIVO, and am going to save a few episodes to watch them in a row.

      Now I understand why a recap is so powerful – I really do not have to watch the show!!!

      I may watch the Fashion Show unless I accumulate more than 5 on TIVO. If I have 6 shows that I have not watched, they are all goners in mass.

      I do love this blog. What nice, and forgiving people you all seem to be.

      All the best!

    • MizNYDoll says:

      I happened to love love love the purplely orangey tie dyed dress Stacy had on during the submarine ride……..anyone know who designed it?


  1. cdnfillie58 says:

    Great blog Quincy….I still won’t bother to actually watch the shows when I can read your great recaps….THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU 😛

    • quincyil says:

      Glad to accomodate. I look at both shows with wonder. I wonder how Patti got on TV and I wond how you could get an inspiration for a dress from the Human digestive system.

      Fluffy muscles and the female vagina… Ok… glad I spent time in that anatomy lab…

  2. quincyil says:

    I got blue and green confused in the last paragraph. Color blind… The Green team had Calvin who went to the blue team who gave up Cesar for the green team.

    That should clear every thing up. rotfl.

  3. TEB says:

    Good Job Q!

    • quincyil says:

      Thanks… I do love being with the board and Lynn. I laughed at the pictoral crazy island link too. If anyone wants to take me to the island I am willing to go. I think I can put up with anyone if I can be warm in Jan.

      • buffywood says:

        I can’t stomach watching Patti either but I really enjoy your recaps.

        I’ll go to the islands with you. I can be a great travel companion when it comes to going to beaches. A book in one hand, a drink in the other; I can sit on lounge chair for days and never utter a word.

        • quincyil says:

          I am very active and while you are on the beach, I am going to be in the water looking at fish with Ramona and her floaty. That is if the floaty doesn’t scare the fish away.

          • buffywood says:

            It sounds like date. One rule though; at dinner time please do not tell me how many calories are in the coconut shrimp.

  4. WindyCityWondering says:

    Thanks Quincy for the recaps!
    Not feeling the Fashion Show and you made it interesting.
    As for MM – Patty couldn’t match a pair of sock! When is Bravo going to either pull the plug or start lying about her exceptionally high matchmaking rate??

    • quincyil says:

      I don’t believe that the people going to the show as potential mates are really looking for love if anyone ever did that. The women seem uninterested in anyone, but themselves. The men were looking for exposure on TV.

      The intern, Ashley wore short cut off with pockets showing to work. That cannot be standard dress code for NYC. I would not let my daughter drive to town for a trip to the grocery story in that attire.

      I believe that the women were wealthy, but I highly doubt that being an internation DJ or a hostess helps you to get that rich. My guess is that, like Beth (fake poker professional,) the money is coming from rich men.

      Before watching reality TV, I did not know how many women married for money. I almost feel that having the children is a financial lock on the husband’s wallet.

      If Stacy, Danielle Staub lookalike, married again; she would give up the alimony that keeps her in that fancy house. She’s not looking for marriage with a guy looking to marry a millionaire.

      • ritgrad says:

        As much as I don’t like her, I have to stick up for Beth Shak. Even though she only has approx $500K tournament in winnings in her career, those are usually just icing on the cake. She is sponsored by an online poker site and plays online in cash games to support herself. She is also divorced from a professional poker player. I’m not sure how you actually qualify a person as being a professional poker player, but Beth Shak probably has the necessary resume.

        • quincyil says:

          Last week, someone came here with some information that is similar to yours. It seems she does play professionally. What I meant is the bulk of her wealth probably comes from her husband who has something to do with a hedge fund. 400,000 seems like a lot of money to me, but her car and shoes probably cost that much.

          Plus, you have to pay taxes on winnings and I’m not sure of the tax rate, but it is on the 1040 form.

  5. TrueLifeDiva says:

    Good morning everyone!

  6. amy says:

    You missed the scene at the end where Patti has a crazy over the top fit at Stacy and throws her out of her office. Patti seemed truly unhinged. She equaled Sheree’s party planner in her professionalism. You actually see her lose her voice from yelling. Why do I watch this show when I can’t stand this 50 year old “old maid”. I think Patti was jealous that Stacy was a mother.

    • quincyil says:

      I did see it. I should have mentioned it. Patti was yelling at people for the entire show and I guess I got shell shocked near the end. Thanks for helping me.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Patty has an exceptionally high rate of being pissed off at her club members who just don’t appreciate her “craft”. And I doubt that she gets many, if any, referrals from satisfied clients. Bravo should just deep six this mess.

      • quincyil says:

        Patti is really cruel to her employees and to the customers. She is the perfect friend for Jill Zarin.

        • LurkerAlso says:

          It would be great if they fired Patti and HIRED the assistant who quit this year; gave HER the show.


  7. error404 says:

    MM got old real fast, so I have no idea how it’s still on the air. It’s one of the fakest “reality” shows going. No one on this show is for real or tells the truth about ANYTHING.

  8. cusi77 says:

    Thank you Quincy! Great Blog! I am sorry I did not read Mill… even “her” name is too much to start a happy day…

    Cesar keeps growing on me… while no one wanted to go to the looser team he did it with grace! He will finally win, though.. since he does not have to deal with Calvin -very talented -no doubt- but with BAD temper! He goes nuts in one second!

    • quincyil says:

      I thought Cesar was going to be the big winner too, but did you see the clothes from Eduardo. Calvin is a force from hell, but he sure is coming up with new ideas and the judges want new ideas. I like Tamara too. She’s young and unsure of herself, but she seems to be able to improve each week.

      I really don’t know what’s going to happen next week.

      Please everyone tune in when the NJ girls come to the show. Can you imagine Calvin and Teresa? OM goodness. It’s going to be nuclear war!

      • JKW says:

        I bet the winners reverse next wk. I am sure the other team can’t handle Calvin either. Great move on Cesars part to go to the other team. He will be a winner over there AND not have to deal with Calvin. Calvin has new ideas and decent designs but he brings down his whole team. Someone ends up going home because his design may be good but he isn’t a team player and they end up losing.

        • quincyil says:

          Some of the younger designers seem to be good too.
          It’s getting better. Calvin does bring drama…

          • JKW says:

            The younger ones do seem good. However, with Calvin on their team they probably won’t get a team win. Since they lose a member from their team will be going home. Cesar is at least a lot safer on the other team. He doesn’t have the drama and he is a good leader.

            • quincyil says:

              I like Cesar as a persno too. I think he is sad because his beloved partner passed away and I hope this helps him feel better. Being with people really does help after a great loss.

            • error404 says:

              we’ll see. I actually think that despite all of his cray-cray, Calvin was the scape goat. The two girls who finish each other’s sentences were terrible at both getting the other girl to accept their ideas, and the idea itself. He dress was better w/out their input. Their outfits are always 50/50 some good, some bad, and even though the last minute pleating was a disaster,t he dress really was very simple. I think Caesar has a challenge on his hands getting this crew to up their ante.

              • JKW says:

                I think the team has a challenge trying to understand Calvin. In the others defense…he is very distracting and took up so much time trying to talk about the nuclear whatever that there was alot of time lost for sketching. Not to mention his fighting with everyone.

              • quincyil says:

                One of the twins is Iranian. I will look at Iranian web sites to see if there is any mention of her name. Being on tv is a big deal to the immigrants as they are trying to become a force in the USA. They are organizing and supporting candidates. Another minority on the rise.

      • karenne says:

        I am watching the show with Iman and Izaac….because I love Fashion. But…even though I appreciate the bits that they made “different” from Project Runway…. the personality differences between Heidi and Iman, Izaac vs Tim as well known fashion icon, and the “other judges”…..
        I miss My PROJECT RUNWAY!!!!!!!!! Its not the same on the other channel…
        I like some of the clothes, and the contestants seem to be more experienced in working in the industry, vs the garage or basement of their own homes…
        But a Fashion Reality Show…is sort of about clothes..but its really about WHO is the DESIGNER making the clothes and how big or obnoxious their personality is…or how likable…until they design one flop.
        The contestant/designers are boring, with of course the exception of the CRAZY guy….that got traded to the other team on last episode (2). Is he really that bossy and obnoxious or does he think that by intimidating the nicer contestants, he’ll stay on the show longer because he is “interesting”.
        If he yells at Team NAMI….like he yelled at Emerald Team…
        he is just crazy and should go to Bellevue.

        QuincyIL …..keep blogging, for Fashion! Hopefully the show will get interesting.
        Also, dont you think its unfair for the team of designers, to be on the Emerald Team together? I do.
        they design together in real world, they should be on separate teams…to really compete.
        But…my opinion only….???

        I think the guy that won the first episode…with the long dress, that is now on Emerald team….will win, unless he really messes up….He for sure, is a good sewer, designer and very fast.
        He helps his team…can you imagine how the Emerald Team is encouraged now? NAMI should just beat down CRAZY GUY, when they walk in….before the assignment and tell him to shut up.
        I realize its already been filmed…but I hope they have more cahones to tell him…..BE QUIET!!!! NOW!!!! or you are hanging over the ledge by your heals….

        Crazy guys on Project Runway werent that LOUD and Obnoxious….they were funny or odd or annoying….
        who let that crazy guy in?
        oh…..I guess without him….the show would be so boring…no one being nuts….just sewing and helping….

        I love me some fashion shows!!!! and Blogs!!!!
        Thanks QuincyIL
        (her obnoxiousness was kind of “quirky” in CA….she was a fish out of water….with her NJ ways….but in NY….she just stopped being “quirky” and “oddball out” and became HERSELF.
        YUCK. I cannot imagine being her…and facing fifty…trying to hook up all these people looking for love…and her not finding love…no wonder she is so angry and bitter….”those who Can, DO. Those who can’t Teach”. Now, not saying teachers are bad, but it kind of goes along with MM…she cannot find love herself, so how can she DO it for others? she can’t, so she “teaches”, meaning “finds love according to her rules of matchmaking”
        so…if she had found love for herself, she could find love for others, but since she hasnt, she can try to use only RULES….
        instead of a knowing, of who is good for who….a gift.
        at least that is how I see her….she never should have left CA…and she shouldnt be a matchmaker…
        oh, she isnt, she is a bravolebrity….teehee
        sorry….but when she gets mad at someone, I see on commercials…only….she just ticks me off. who yells at the receptionist? what a jerk boss she is….I hope that young girl walks out on her one day and let stanger find the good ny girls…
        after all….JZ promised to help her with that, remember?
        Have an awesome day!!!
        I have a grandson being born today….later in the day….but I’m excited! But I still had to come and say HI to LynnsFam….
        of which I include myself….
        just listened to a podcast…Lynnn You are Fabulous!!
        How can anyone detract from you, when they hear how nice you are…and how FAIR you are, when speaking on the radio about the RH’s???? If someone doesnt like your words, they need to hear you on the podcast, you do. (you were ASKED TO DO)

    The Fashion Show had a complete overhaul this season, and I could see how on paper, it all looks good. The challenges are more interesting, the set up is more interesting, the new host is more interesting…. but somehow, it just falls flat. No matter how hard they try, this show just comes off as hokey and amateurish.

    Lifetime is slowly running PR into the ground, but all of Bravo’s efforts to recreate their past success are all disasters. Weird.

    • kk says:

      I completely disagree with you. Fashion show is excellent.

    • karenne says:

      I know…you said it perfectly, I said same thing but it took a zillioni sentences to try and say what you did in a few…..
      I miss Project Runway….on Bravo.
      Project Runway, was the show I never missed for anything!!! My fave, if anyone asked…whats your fave show on TV? Why….Project Runway of course!!!!

      now….its lost its lustre…..the other network….what have they done?
      tamed it?

      Why did Project Runway move to that other network?
      syndacation money?
      they werent brought back by Bravo?
      I heard there was a disagreement of sorts…but I dont know what i t was…

      Anyone can fill me in? I miss Project Runway…from Bravo.
      its not the same on that other channel….not at all.
      no pizzazzzz

      But, I am watching bravo’s show…ultimate whatever they call it.
      I love fashion…so I watch it….
      trying to not compare it….just see it on its own merit…..
      so far, it has some things I like….
      the team, actually is a good idea, because in fashion, that is the way it works, only with a Boss…telling the others how to do it…HIS or HER Look….not, there own.

      But, so far, only NAMI has done that….and now that Big Mouth and Great Designer and Great Nice Man….have changed teams….
      forget their real names….ooops.
      it might get interesting to see the designers on emerald raised up a notch….
      without the CRAZY GUY making them crazy….
      Poor Team NAMI….hahahah, but I bet they put duct tape over him and show him Boundries…..
      they are not going to LOSE due to him, after two wins….
      if they can help it.

      all this to say…..I miss you Project Runway…..
      I watch your reruns….are they still being shown now?
      I have watched them for the years….they were on Bravo…

      but, I’ll give new show a chance to be “its OWN show” and I will not compare…
      luckily, I’ve always LOVED Iman….so I would watch anyway.

      so, why didnt Bravo keep P.Runway? anyone ????

    thanks for taking it for the team AGAIN!

      Unpaid, uneducated (didn’t go to “I want to be a writer school,”) hobby (but not even a blogger/guest only) blogger with the fear of managing a board seeks to review sacred reality shows that should only to be reviewed by people who have been accepted by yahoo (I never look at yahoo, I use google) and associated something simply for the fun of sharing with other like minded people.

      I’m working on my blogging resume…

        Quincyil…..you rock it….as a blogger for the MM and fashion show and for being a LynnnFam member…and for telling your truth!
        Love your Comments and guest blogging….
        are you getting your own blog now???
        or did I read that wrong?
        I dont read anything on Yahoo either.
        Google….all the way.
        But, I did go look at a blog on Yahoo….really diffacult to navigate thru the many links to find the associations…to find…that the 2

        well they just must be highly intelligent…a class of their own…

        If I blogged…which I have no intention of doing…
        One thing I would do….

        I would blog, and then hope for comments…to my blog.
        why would a person, not give a comment place?

        I’m not being mean…but I am new and I just dont understand the craziness…..
        so….I stay on the blogs of LynnnFam and Friends….
        one thing….
        I’m having a hard time figuring out who the meanies are….on Twitter.
        and some of the initials….
        and that stuff.

        I know RCH has a Blogs you should visit, paraphrased..and that is how I found LynnnFam
        is there a Twitter and Blog place to go to understand what the heck is going on, and I dont want to join up in the disagreements..I just dont want to be a pawn in the evil chess game, only one side is playing…

        I dont want to see the snipes at Lynnn ….
        or anyone here….
        but I dont know who is who on here and on Twitter….

    I have a question.. Does Bravo or Patty choose the order that the episodes run in? I ask because Patty is getting more publicity for her horrendous track record than for having a quality show (which she doesn’t). What is her viewership like? I don’t watch it but am always just a little curious if she is gonna remain 0-0. Is it possible they are hoping people will watch just to see if she ever succeeds in putting any couple together or to just see her crazy rants?

    • quincyil says:

      I think Bravo execs thrive on controversy. Patti is controversial. She’s fodder for the masses.

      • error404 says:

        Bravo does thrive on drama, but…

        Rachel Zoe really does style those celebs for the OScars and the mag shoots, Patti’s clients are more serious about finding bigfoot than they are about finding a mate.

        Brad and Taylor may have whined non stop about RZ, but both did leave her, so… maybe it’s wasn’t all just fake drama for a show. I don’t think the “dates” Patti finds are anymore serious than the losers they’re set up with.

        And who could blame anyone for thinking Betty White was more likely to have a baby than RZ, but guess who’s got a belly out to here. Well, Patti grew a belly too, but her “engagement” went belly-up.

        So, yes. Bravo shows may seem forced at times, but MM is really fake, fake, fake.

    OT I have a flight to Texas in about 2 hours for a software convention and I REALLY don’t want to go. It didn’t make it easier that my son just said “Mom, don’t want me to go on my trip” (he mixes up I and me with you and my with your). My other 4 legged son won’t come out of the bathroom since he saw my suitcase. Does anyone want to go in my place? The upside is that it is being hosted at a beautiful resort with an incredible spa.

    • viki55 says:

      I am already in Tx so I will be glad to go for ya! Where at in Tx? I don’t envy the flight, are you gonna have to go thru the new xray thingy?

      • quincyil says:

        I always am fondled by the TSA. I have been since 9/11. It is the fault of the short Middle Eastern guy who orders me to hurry up and move quickly while he is handing me his bag full of computers, electronic equipment like iphone and ipads, and beepers. The last TSA agent was so nice. She said my blouse was so loose that she had to check me, but I still think it has something to do with my husband.

        Oh… once he left his computer bag full of stuff at the baggage area of St. Louis’s Lambert field. We remembered on the way to the car in the parking lot and returned with the car. It was there. Who in their right mind is going to pick up a bag left by that guy at the airport?

        • Adgirl says:

          That made me laugh out loud.
          Your poor husband was lucky he wasn’t sent to Gitmo for leaving his computer bag at Lambert field.
          And you! The co-conspiritor! What kind of facility are you running there in the remote backwoods???? Hmm.

          What a hassle. At least you guys have a sense of humor about it.

          • quincyil says:

            Is there an option? I loved it that Janet Reno thinks that the TSA might make accomodations for Muslim women when CAIR complained about the searches. I am hoping to be included in the group protected by the Muslim groups.

            • quincyil says:

              Make that Homeland Sec. Janet Napoliano… she was recorded and they played it on WLS in Chicago yesterday. She thinks that there can be a way to protect Muslim women from the searches that all of us have to have.

        • Had Enough! says:

          Q – I am your basic, boring, middle-class, middle-aged white lady and I don’t have a husband of Middle Eastern background. Every time I travel – and I do mean every time – whether I am alone or with husband or others – I am pulled aside for enhanced searching. I can be dressed in nice business attire. It doesn’t matter. I am also the one they pick on. I’ve even had them wand my BARE FEET. Bare. As in where the fuck do they think I am hiding something? Did I implant explosives under my skin? And I’ve also gotten that “because you have on a loose overshirt” line. I told the lady “trust me, honey, I am hiding something, but when you pat me down, you will know why.” We both had a good laugh at that.

          I am convinced that I am the token white lady that they pick on so they can prove they aren’t profiling people like your husband!

          So it’s all your husband’s fault! (That’s what I always tell my husband – of course it is all your fault. That’s why women get married. So we will always have someone else to blame. Why else would we put up with you?)

          • quincyil says:

            It got so bad in the weeks after 9/11 when we had several trips that at one point I cried because they were doing a strip search in front of a crowd in the San Francisco airport in the waiting area because they hadn’t changed the airports yet. The pilots came out of their plane en mass to look over the list of names and after they did that I was called up to the front and searched. I told the head of the search team that I was a Catholic Irish American and he said in some countries the Irish are the ones blowing things up.

            My daughter has entertained the public taking clothing off piece by piece and pretending it was a strip tease act. They young male TSA agents turned red.

            • Had Enough! says:

              So we are in Port of Prince (Trinidad) waiting for a flight to Miami. I get the super-duper ultra-special pat down. We go to sit in the waiting area. There is a clear view of the scanner/search area. What do I see? A guy with what was probably a HUGE fro under a big knit hat come through. Do they ask him to remove the hat? Hell no. He doesn’t even get a pat-down. I can just see the headline now: plane downed by bomb hidden under passenger’s hat.

              • quincyil says:

                There might of been birds being smuggled into the country under that hat too. People actually take illegal animals into the US under their clothes.

        • kbinldo says:

          I’m looking forward to Christmas, when I plan to “go commando” at least through security. That way, if the TSA has to get in my pants, they’ll get a nice surprise. I am thisclose to showing up in nothing but panties & a bra, but figure it’s going to be a bit cold in December for that kind of passive resistance.

          • quincyil says:

            rotfl…. I’d like to see that.

            My mom told me to let them take the Xrays of my body. LOL… Shall I strike a pose? At least, I should tilt my head like Teresa.

    REALITY BUZZ with LYNN HUDSON! Hot New Show! http://bit.ly/92JmUP

  15. Golden Girl says:

    Thank you @quincyil for the great recaps. I don’t watch MM because I can’t stand stanker but I like to keep up with her “success” rates lol.

  16. Kokuanani says:

    Don’t watch Fashion Show, and vaguely tune to MM while chasing dust bunnies under the couch. [Because of the time difference, MM airs @ 4 in the afternoon here.]

    This was the first episode on which I thought the “clients” were even worse than Patti. Good grief, Stacy looked like she was tweaked out on meth [not that I have any experience on such matters; just going by what I see on tv]. The woman was bat-s**t crazy. Kevin was a prince to even put up with her.

    Sky — I mean, who cares. What a self-absorbed idiot. Anyone who spends their “working life” in noisy, smoky clubs, “spinning” loud, vile music has to have a screw loose. I thought Kevin tried really hard to make a connection with her and seek out the best in her [note how HE carried 98% of the conversation, asking questions, etc.], but she was so narcissistic, it was impossible.

    Why don’t they just change the name of this show to Losers, Inc.

    • quincyil says:

      Kevin reminded me of the HBO star, Thomas Jane of “Hung.” I saw Thomas in a weird sci fi about the northern woods and an space alien invasion too.

      I’m surprised Kevin isn’t a big star because he is gorgeous, well spoken, and appears to be hard working. They said he was an actor and model.

      It’s ok… Grandmothers can look too.

      • JKW says:

        I like Thomas Jane and I don’t think Kevin is as cute as he is. The movie was Dream Catcher. I saw that also. Now he has an HBO series called Hung. And yes it’s the hung you are thinking about, not the Top Chef guy.

    Quincy – I enjoyed your recaps. I don’t watch either show, but reading about them the next day is fun.

  19. Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

    Completely OT, but could everyone please cross fingers, toes and send up a prayer or 20!?
    I just got a call and have a job interview at 4:30 today (3 hours from now). It is my first interview for a medical admin. position, running the front office of a Dentistry firm. Time to put all my hard earned schooling to work! Please pray for me. I really am NERVOUS!

  20. Had Enough! says:

    My new resolution, since I obviously can’t stay away (that’s someone’s husband’s fault, too), is to only say something when I have something nice or interesting to say. Boring, I know, but I am totally exhausted from the RCH Smackdown of the Century, not that Put Your Hair Up needed my help. So my first thing to say, after LOVE YOU LYNN, is Quincy – thank you for inspiring me. I am back to eating right and exercising and hope in a year to be able to report to you that I can wear all those teeny tiny clothes that have been abandoned in the closet for two years, and run up those beautiful mountains again, and look in a mirror again. I have a chant that I made up when I was just getting started the last time, and having trouble on the steeper hillsides, to keep me motivated: “Haul your hiney up the hill and you won’t have to take a pill!” I so miss those mountains, and can’t wait to be fit enough to start hiking again, and you are really inspiring me. OK, so Bethenny is, too.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      welcome back-I’ve missed you

    • Adgirl says:

      That is a great resolution! Does it apply to snarking on TV personalities?

      FYI – I just finished my morning yogurt and logged in my Weight Watchers points (2 for yoplait light) and planned my afternoon 2 hour walk (this time take the steep street 1/2 mile then walk down hill into town).
      You will keep me inspired!

      • Had Enough! says:

        Oh shoot. Not snarking on these reality freaks (sorry Bethenny and Sonja – you KNOW I didn’t mean you). Well. Hmm. I will try. I guess it won’t be too hard. All you have to do is post what they’ve actually done or said. No need to comment. As I just pointed out on RCH, when someone says (in REAL life, not under the supposed cover of “the producers made me go” or “the producers told me to bring the drama”):

        “Last week I was supposed to go to South Africa with the group CC Africa, which has arranged safaris for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in the past. I was very excited to go – I was going to help open a school there – but I missed my flight by 10 minutes! I really had wanted to see the country and all the turmoil that is happening over there; it’s so trendy in the news, but I was hoping to see it firsthand. Coincidentally, the minute I missed my plane, my BlackBerry started buzzing off the hook and next thing I knew, I was on my way to Vegas for a diamond convention at the Venetian hotel with Russell Simmons.”

        You kind of don’t have to snark. I mean, how could you enhance that by snarking?

        • quincyil says:

          I think this is a wonderful gift to yourself and to your family. This is the perfect time of year to start taking care of yourself too.

          I did it for my granddaughter. My daughter told me that I have to live a long time for our baby. Nothing is more important than family.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Must confess – Quincy has inspired me as well! Now I walk everyday – alternating my dogs because together they would turn me into a sled to get their pulling yayas out!

      • quincyil says:

        LOL… I totally understand the dog thing. Be sure to use take turns with the leash arm too. I can see you having on Popeye arm and one Olive arm if you always have the leash on one side.

      • Adgirl says:

        “Turn me into a sled” priceless vision.

        My american bulldog hates to walk. It interferes with her sniffing investigations.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Must alternate arms as to avoid knuckles dragging on the ground! I have racing huskys – together they compete for lead.

        • American Idiot says:

          I have a sniffer too. A tibetian terrier. Walk, sniff, Walk, sniff, Walk, sniff, sniff, sniff. It gets so tedious.

          • MELANIE says:

            I have to carry my chihuahua with her leash attached. She sits down and refuses to walk. And in good concious I just don’t have the heart to drag her.She wins I look like an idiot walk and carry her, set her down try to coax a movement out of her limp body…Nope, nothing pick her up and try again a block later. This dog is only one year old. AUGHHHH!

      Indeed, it is.

    • quincyil says:

      Slamming PTA moms. I did not know that. I was the President of the PTAs that my kids were in from day one of having a child in the public schools for the next 20 years. I helped other schools with their fundraiser and even helped the parents raise money for the Catholic and Lutherin Schools. We taught kids who had no reading materials in their homes and one family that had a dirt floor. We sent all of the kids in 6 grade to Springfield, Il,, 7th grade to Canada and 8 th grade to Washington, DC.

      We didn’t care if the kids were rich or poor, we took care of every single child.

      I don’t think I need to tell you my opinion of Jenn Sales because every single person on this blog knows what I think of her.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        Let’s see, in the video:
        -she was swearing in front of her children,
        -she was slurring her words,
        -she was using Eubonics ala Snoop Dogg. (always so attractive in a 30+ white suburban mom)
        -she was slamming another mom for making gourmet kiddie snacks
        -she complained that the other PTA moms were giving her the “stink eye” (Um ,do you blame them?)
        Not funny, not cute, EPIC FAIL.

            oh man @quincy!

            Why can’t snarking on a professional blogger be my hobby?

            OK, OK it’s gone on long enough…I’ll stop and find try and find my knitting needles.

            • quincyil says:

              Actually, I thought we were professional snarkers.

              Oh… I know… neither of us are graduates of “I want to be a snarker school” like Jenn Sales.

              Darn… I can’t be a blogger like Jen and now I can’t be a professional snarker like Jen. I am crushed.

    • scorpiosue1102 says:

      She just doesn’t get it. Her kids go to school with these “PTA Bishes”, as she says, so is she making herself feel better or making it harder for her kids. Personally, I give kudos to the PTA moms that are uber involved because they do tons of great things for my sons school i.e. classroom parties, Market Day, Family Fun nights, free t-shirts for the kids, etc.

      Now, as to Jenn bemoaning that these You Tube videos are no big deal and for 8 of her friends….welllll, you’d think that she’d realized from covering reality TV shows that if you don’t want something out there for everyone to see you KEEP IT TO YOURSELF!!!! I have no sympathy for people that complain for putting stupid sh!t on the internet.

      • quincyil says:

        I have trouble with my facebook page. I really joined to see the photos and videos of family babies and children.

        • Adgirl says:

          Yawn. It would be more interesting if her IQ was over 22.

          I for one pity her neighbors, co-workers, PTA moms, Little League coaches, Girl Scout leaders, in-laws, siblings and children.
          Her husband is probably a real nice guy who drunk shagged her because she was the last one at the bar that night. I’ll bet he works 60 hours a week and she still nags him about housework.
          One day he will have an affair with a nice co-worker and she’ll go all Betty Broderick on him.


  22. HD says:

    Thanks for the blogs, Quincy. I have yet to watch the Fashion Show and I always miss the Matchmaker show. I figure I will catch up one day when they show them all in one big rerun. Until then, I will keep reading your blogs! 🙂

  23. TEB says:

    Where is WSL and Boston today?

    • quincyil says:

      That is sad. I read about the suit when she first came into the show. I also read about her divorce that some claimed was never filed. They were actually working on it in CT for some reason.

      She has 13 million, but it’s the fixed assest of her house. She has placed it on the market and taken it off several times. She doesn’t own a Hampton’s house, but rather stays with friends who let her garden on their property.

      I knew she had financial problems, but it seems she wants a new start. The big loser will be the production company that sued her, but that is only 7 million of the 19 that she owes people. I bet little guys that provided her with goods and services are going to get hit too.

      Did you notice how empty that town house was? Also, for a house like that she had a part time maid. Yep…. something was really wrong there.

      • klmh says:

        Good observations.
        The inability to clean dog poop herself, and having to buy two cups of coffee for she and LuAnne because the maid wasn’t there to make it, now that was bizarre.

    • klmh says:

      She is “especial” in her little world, isn’t she? All those people just flock to wherever she goes and yes, she is still the straw the steers the drink.
      Maybe not so much anymore? I do though like her persona on the show.

      • quincyil says:

        Can you imagine how high up Sonja and Kelly felt when married to those important men? I read that Kelly would whisk into his magazine with the air of “I am Mrs. best photographer in the Universe”

        The JPMorgan clan is really high up there too. I read articles online that they never really accepted Sonja. She was the modern version of the dance hall girl who marries the rich land baron while his relatives lay in wait. Rich men like, her husband, and his brothers have trust funds. There is great wealth, but the divorcing wife isn’t going to get that money.

        I’m sure Sonja’s daughter has trust funds. That comes with the territory.

        Sonja might look happy to us, but who can be happy with those money problems and a dui to boot. She’s in limbo is there is no divorce too.

        • klmh says:

          I thought she was getting a divorce from him. Not so?
          I don’t know because I didn’t marry for money, but shouldn’t this be in the back of their minds when they do? Although no one likes Taylor, she went in to this marriage anticipating there will be something better to come along in her husband’s life. She is smart and started her own business, just to be safe. Have to give her some credit…
          Sonya marries a Hunt, but did she bring anything to the table other than sex appeal? He is many years older than she, but was she attracted to him or his money? I think I know… He has found another hotty, just like LuAnne’s husband, Kelly’s husband, and so many others on these shows. I am sorry she is going thru this pain, but she should have seen it coming, imo.
          The DUI, well Im afraid she finally got caught. It wasn’t her first time driving under the influence and might not be the last.

          • quincyil says:

            They have been in negotiations for years. There are no records of a divorce sealed or unsealed. The research that I read about in an article claimed that nothing had been finalized. I believe that Sonja might still be married to Mr. Morgan.

          • klmh says:

            Morgan, sorry not Hunt. So much money, so many names…

  25. justanothermary says:

    I have a theory: I think the Kelly brake through (read break down) got really high rating thus Bravo thinks nutcases are gold. They had Seth go nuts on Just Desserts and now this Mike on DS goes off the deep end. There just isn’t enough time to list the new nut bags they got for howives. But, what happens when one of these nut jobs actually harms themself or someone else? I think it’s really irresponsible of Bravo to deal with these looney toons. I’m just waiting for something really awful to happen and the ensuing law suits against Bravo and Andy. Bravo has a lot more crazies per capita than even this little red neck weirdo town I live in. Their playing with fire.

    • justanothermary says:

      Oops they’re playing with fire.

      • quincyil says:

        Of course they have more crazies than your town and my town…. it’s NYC. Rotfl… They have 12 million stories to tell. LOL..

      • Kansas Girl says:

        I figured it was because they have all these fragile artistic types – or at least people who view themselves as artists – and are so tightly wound they can easily lose it.

        • quincyil says:

          I know a lot of artists around here. Some are fragile. Maybe, the stress of creating and trying to make a living at art or fashion sends them over the edge.

          There is a guy here who paints large acrylics and everyone has skulls, men’s gym shoes and things I can not describe in proper society.

    • error404 says:

      I don’t get all of the Bravo-blame. Am I suppose to assume Snookie and The Situation passed a series of rigorous psych exams? How about that RI guy who walked all around the island naked? I guess he finally put pants on to take all of that $$$ to the bank! lol

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        because IMHO they just seem like they’re exploiting mentally ill, or at least mentally fragile people in the quest for ratings.
        It’s sort of like lining the poor mis-shapen freaks up at the carnival for everyone to laugh at.
        Scary Island was a classic for just that.

        Snookie and Situation are making huge $$$ compared to these ladies.

      • JKW says:

        You know error, one thing you got to give Snooky and the bunch….they don’t say they are rich, socialites, live glamerous lives or make the other claims the HWs do. They are pretty much Guidos and Guidettes and own it. They tell everyone about their boobs, their sex life and don’t hide a thing. They also get jobs wherever they go, at least on the TV show. Maybe the HWs should take a clue from them. You probably aren’t going to get any dirt on them because it’s already been on the TV or they tell everyone.

      I do think that Bravo casts colorful people because let’s be honest, it would be boring otherwise. Yet you may not know that someone is a nutcase until we all get up close and personal. I am sure that Bravo has umpteen types of clauses so they are not to blame when someone goes postal.

        I bet they are downsizing. Why would someone want something that big? Well, that was a stupid question on my part. We were in Newport RI a few weeks ago and you talk about over the top with some of those estates…

        • quincyil says:

          I have walked through some of the open ones. Did you?

          I love New Port. When my daughter was in Brown we went every year.

          We go to Hartford now..

          • klmh says:

            We went thru the Breakers, and saw some of the others but didn’t go inside, just around some of their grounds. Walked the 3 1/2 mile walk along the estates lining the ocean.
            Is that not a fabulous city? Lobster sandwiches for goodness sakes. Bread, lobster, mayo, on the wharf, perfect in every way.
            My niece and her husband are there for a year and were able to rent a wonderful condo on the water about 2 blocks from the wharf. The beauty of the place just blew us away.
            We have never been to Conn. but are looking forward to a visit there as well. I’ve heard its wonderful as well.

            • quincyil says:

              Mark Twain has his home in Hartford. There is a museum. We enjoyed the visit very much. We live near Hannibal, Mo. so we know a lot about Sam Clemens.

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          Now a days, it seems like more people are ‘upside downsizing’ Nic Cage bought is Bel Air estate for about 6 million in the late 90’s but borrowed so much against it- it owed more than it increased in value some 10+ years later.

          I am betting Camille and Kelsey Grammar are also cash poor now too, since he isn’t making Fraiser money anymore and like Nick Cage, much of their assets are in real estate which took a real bad turn.

    • quincyil says:

      I once wrote to the realstalker and he wrote back to me. I love him/mamma.
      I love looking at the photos of the beautiful homes.

      So..what’s up with Lisa. Remember the lead in to the show and how much she loves BH and that house? Odd, right?

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        I love looking a beautiful homes too, it’s one of the things I do online during down time. I still wouldn’t want one of those crazy huge houses though- imagine if you are trying to get to your kids in the middle of the night- I don’t want to jog 1/2 mile to get to their rooms.

        Oh and on RHOA- Kim is so full of shit with saying Breelee(sp) bed room is 2000 sq feet. Really- it’s a fn town house- the third floor of Spelling Manor is 16,000 sq ft- are we suppose to believe that room is 1/8 the size.

  27. AZ Girl says:

    Home from work and late to the party. A big “HIGH FIVE” to Quincy and her recaps. Calvin is BSC and I am glad he is on that show. Patty needs another job.

    Hope everyone got over to RCH and saw her blog. It is hilarious and just what the doctor ordered. Time to chill and laugh put the trolls in the past.

    Duchess I hope all went well with your interview today.

    Be back later. Fixing dinner.

  28. Adgirl says:

    I figured the only reason Adrienne Maloof was on RHBH was to generate business for the Palms and for her husband’s plastic surgery biz.
    Las Vegas has been in the shitter for 4 years now.

    Just because you have jillions of dollars in holdings doesn’t mean you arent; stretched for cash to service debts.

    • Kellita says:

      Taylor is not a good advertisement for Adrienne’s husband’s plastic surgery biz. They shoulda re-thunk that one. Just sayin’.

  29. HD says:

    Not to be mean but I do not feel sorry for any of these women or families in bankruptcy. They had MORE than enough money. More money than most of us will ever see in our lifetime. All they had to do was manage it right. You do not go out and buy fancy cars, big houses, fly all around the country on lavish trips and invest in shaky businesses. People like this have enough money to pay someone to manage it well for them. You know when you are living above your means. You just do. The concept doesn’t change because you happen to have more money. The same principle applies. If you spend more than you have coming in, you will be broke. Period.

    Also, I am a little sick and tired of these women living off men and divorce settlements. Get a job! Do something. You do not set yourself up for failure. I just do not get it. It is sad out of all these shows we can only point to a FEW that actually have jobs and I mean jobs you do every day not a few appearances and your Bravo check. Vicki, Kandi, the Palms lady, Bethanny…who else has a REAL job?

    • quincyil says:

      I think that the Grammers were crazy to buy 17 mansions/expensive apts in different cities. They had 3 in LA… Who needs 3 homes in one city? You have an extra home that you can lone to a friend? Lunatics.

      • quincyil says:


        • TEB says:

          its for tax purposes (i suspect)

          • quincyil says:

            You can only have one residence in IL…

            I have friends that lived in Japan, but owned a house in Washington State. She came over to live in the house for 2 years to show that it was their primary residence to save the taxes when it was sold.

            I guess California might give you money off if you have more than one house. I don’t know their laws.

      • klmh says:

        Real estate, until a few years ago, has always been such a great investment. As my father used to say, they don’t make land anymore. None, well very few saw what was coming in 2007…

    • Cakers says:

      I agree, HD

      Let’s see (as of the previous seasons):
      RHofOC: 5 women, ….1 has a job (Vicki)
      RHofA: 6 women,…..3 have jobs (Cynthia, Kandi & Phaedra)
      RHofNY: 7 women, …….3 have jobs (Bethenny, Ramona & Alex)
      RHofNJ: 5 women,….. 0 have jobs.
      RHofDC: 5 women,… 2 have jobs (Stacey & Lynda)
      RHofBH: 6 women……2 have jobs (Adrienne & Lisa)

      34 women and 11 work outside the home. Now granted, some of those are stay at home moms, but still…..

      • HD says:

        Now that’s a damn shame! I have nothing against stay at home moms but these women aren’t even that. They call it that but yeah right. They stay at home and get botox, get hair extensions, manis and pedis, go to some yoga class all while their kids are with the nannies.

        I bet Kelsy is so damn tired of Camille. I cannot imagine go out making tons of money and watching someone squander it away on stupid stuff. I know when you have millions upon millions you may not think like that but even millionaires go broke from poor spending. You don’t have to live like a pauper but come on 17 mansions? Really?

        I think I read this article that oh goodness what is his name….Warren Buffett, I think I read he lives in small home that he has always had or something like that. If it wasn’t him it was someone really rich like that. I do agree in having a good time and having nice things and treating yourself but some of this stuff is just stupid and that is why they are broke.

      • TEB says:

        No Disrespect Cakers – but wasn’t it supposed to be a ‘Housewives’ story? I work FT and maybe thats why I tuned in- to see how the other half lived? (Neither half is better off than the other BTW)

        • housewifeaddict says:

          If I was Kelsey I’d want Camille to live in another house. Even with 17 he had trouble getting away from her.

  30. Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

    Hey all! Thanks for all the good wishes—they worked! I think the interview went REALLY well. They are very interested in my 25 years of training and customer service. She even threw out a dollar amount.
    So here’s the thing. My luck this last year has not been the best. This job is very close to my house, the money she talked is about 10K more than I was thinking and the benfit package is wonderful. the hours are perfect. I loved the office and the people I met. I think I could really bring something to this place and would enjoy doing the work.
    It is almost too much to hope for. I don’t want to get my hopes up. But I am hoping. 2 weeks until she makes her decision. Please keep praying for me. I really want this. I deserve this. I have worked so hard for just this moment. I am soooooo scared I won’t get this! I know. I sound psycho. Just call me Melly–it rhymes with Kelly and we be nuts!

    • quincyil says:

      It sounds good to me. I have some crystals down in my creek. We call them geodes around here. I will run down there in the dark and get a few so we can put them on your head and clear your mind. Just give me a moment to find my boots and I’ll go.

    • cdnfillie58 says:

      Take it for what it is, a piece of well deserved luck finally going your way. Sounds like they were impressed with you if they talked money…how could they not be. Something tells me you’ll be hearing from her long before the 2 weeks..(the two weeks time frame is probably because of your Thanksgiving holiday next weekend)

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      Send her a thank you note RIGHT NOW! tell her how much you want the job.

      it is not the person that is the most qualified for a job that gets it, it is the person that is the most enthusiastic

      Sending you good wishes

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        @quincy- I need some geodes for my head too. Will they fit under the tinfoil?

        • quincyil says:

          They actually come in all sizes and can be opened and sliced. I have a fortune in uncut geodes on my land.

        • sweet pea says:

          Good Luck! The thank you note is the best idea! Tell them what you told us. You got it!!!

        • cdnfillie58 says:

          ummm…<—maybe dumb canuck but what are geodes..are they shrooms? 😛

          • quincyil says:

            Nope, they are rock formations.

            Here’s a photo


            We have limestone creeks which happen to have many fossils and these sedimentary rocks that are hollow. When you open them up, there are beautiful crystals sometimes pink, some clear, and some greens. We also have huge boulders left over from the last ice age. We have iron rocks from your neck of the woods too. Glaciers brought those here.

            The limestone came from the remnants of a giant inland sea that covered this area during the time of Dinosaurs: Triaccic, Juraccic and Cretanaceous Periods. The sea slowly disappeared and the main river that remains is the Mississippi that I live near. Under my land are huge deposits of coal and some oil from the ancient plants and marine life that lived here so long ago.

      • Cakers says:

        One More is sooo right, Duchess…
        When I did mock interviews, one of the main things stressed was the follow-up thank-you letter.

        Best of luck to you. You deserve it. 🙂

    • klmh says:

      Wishing and hoping for your appointment to the perfect job. Fingers and toes crossed and much positive energy being sent your way.

  31. quincyil says:

    There is so much information on the board tonight. See what happens when friends share. LOL.

  32. Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

    LOL! I actually stopped at Walgreens on my way home from the interview and found a lovely thank you card. It is stamped and awaiting the post man in the morning.
    Oh, and do you think you could post me a pattern for the tin foil hat in a scaled down doggie size? I am thinking if it can protect us from trolls maybe it can help Misty’s attention span—then she can actually start following her training commands. 🙂

    • quincyil says:

      I think that some pets are smarter than others. I have a cat, Buddy, who I suspect is a genius cat.

  33. nepenthe says:

    FYI: Lisa’s home is for sale….anyone have $35 MIL sitting around?


    ****I haven’t read all of the above posts so plz excuse if this is a duplicate.

  34. nepenthe says:

    Oh crap! Finally waded thru the posts and saw that the REALESTALKER info had already been posted. Mea culpa!

  35. Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

    Well, I am taking off the tin foil and heading to bed. Stressful day.
    Thanks so much for your support tonight gang. I don’t care what any crazed out housewife, troll or incoherent PROFESSIONAL blogger has to say–You are the best bunch of banannas on the web! Love and a hug to each and every one of you!

    • American Idiot says:

      DDL – So glad the interview went well. I bet you hear from them before two weeks are up. It sounds like the perfect job; and you are the perfect candidate. Best wishes for a successful outcome.

      • winatlife says:

        Replying to the wrong post. I just want Quincy to see this post. I am relatively internet illiterate when it comes to replies, so please forgive me. I will do better. Loved the recap. I have never read a recap without watching the show before…

        I will never watch MM again, and I have the Fashion Show on TIVO, and am going to save a few episodes to watch them in a row.

        Now I understand why a recap is so powerful – I really do not have to watch the show!!!

        I may watch the Fashion Show unless I accumulate more than 5 on TIVO. If I have 6 shows that I have not watched, they are all goners in mass.

        I do love this blog. What nice, and forgiving people you all seem to be.

        All the best!

        • quincyil says:

          Thanks. Lynn gave me the chance. This is an example of coat tail riders latching onto a star and I am not afraid to say it.

  36. psol says:

    Hello all, I usually don’t come out but felt the need to speak since someone that I’m not familiar with is so concerned about me “the little person”.

    First of all, I’ve been reading Lynn’s blog since the last season of RHONY and have enjoyed every moment of it. I looked for a place where I could come and talk about the sh*t that Jill was doing. I had no one to talk to because none of my friends or family was into it like me. I went to the boards at Bravo and found Lynn, once I did I’ve never gone back. I enjoy everyone here and feel as if I know you all. My morning ritual is getting my cup of coffee and my lap top.

    Lately I’ve been spending a little too much time on the boards so yesterday I decided to do some house cleaning and didn’t get a chance to come to my favorite site. I’m just getting here now and while reading the blog from yesterday, someone spoke of the craziness that occurred on RCH site I believe on Nov. 16th. I went there because that’s what I do, I want to know everything. To my surprise, Lynn was being attacked and I believe it was me the person referring to who sent in a donation that is unemployed. I guess it’s nice to see that someone is concern about my financial situation, but not when it’s used to harm another and they know nothing about me or my life.

    Just for the record, in case this person is lurking, I am of sound mind and body, there’s no way I would send a dime if I couldn’t afford it. I’m not ditching my mortgage, lights or gas payments to send in a donation. I have food, clothing, phone and internet service. I don’t need them(you) looking out for me “the little person”, I’m doing fine.

    I apologize for bringing this up now, I just became aware of it. I just didn’t like the fact that this person knowing nothing about me or my life wanted to use me to get another dig in at Lynn.

    Lynn, I want to thank you again for giving me a place that I look forward to coming to everyday. You are the best.

    • cdnfillie58 says:

      you’re sweet, love to hear from you more often …welcome

    • LynnNChicago says:

      psol Thank you for your post, I appreciate you clearing the air and I am really glad you’re here. 🙂 xo

    • winatlife says:

      Great post, and thank you. I also read the craziness of yesterday and did not appreciate the digs on Lynn followers – we all know what we will, or will not contribute to. We do not need big anyone to tell us what we should do.

      But to me, being called a “leftover” was an unintended compliment. Certain leftovers are absolutely fabulous!!! Most are, in fact.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      That was really nice of you to post this.
      I felt the same way as you. So patronizing that they think you can’t figure out what to do with your own $, and that other posters have to be your financial advisors because of course you must be an idiot. And you are so clearly not.
      sending you love

  37. winatlife 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.

    Warning: This is not HW stuff. I know how ticked I get when I am looking for snark… The good news is that I find much more here.

    Still an internet novice, so I brought over a reply from Adgirl, which I appreciate greatly.

    I married a business partner, not a husband from the get-go. We were in love while dating, but got married in order to buy a house, and the rest is history.

    I do love what I am doing now – training dogs after many years in a corporate career.

    How did you resist the urge to get with “Mr. Right Now” before you met your second husband? I am sure that when I meet my 2nd and last husband that that will be it, and I have a few good prospects on the online site that I subscribe to.

    But in the meantime… My goodness, I’ve tried it all and there are no substitutes. So I am not online with the dating site nearly enough! I think I am making up for lost time??? I dunno.

    • winatlife says:

      Messed that up!! Adgirl stopped when I started with “Warning… Sorry folks, I will do better.

      And Thank those of you who provided advice – I know you are right!

      All the best,

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        Hi @winatlife!
        just wondering- did you make a list?

        • winatlife says:

          I have not, but I will. I kinda know what I want, but am impatient. I know you are right though. Thank you. Sometimes you need to hear (or read) it to realize what you (I) need to do.

          What I need is very simple… What I want is less simple, but simple none the less. This was an “Ah Ha” moment for me.

          Thanks again… The advice from you women who have been there and done that is better than anything I hear from my single girlfriends, ya know? But I will not go on.

          IHJZ – I have not forgotten why I am here.

          • OneMoreInBoston says:

            just start writing. they say you’re supposed to write out 100 things. I thought no way! But I started and I filled up so much paper it was more like 250 things.
            It puts your intentions out into the universe.

            oh! my late mother used to always tell me when I prayed, never tell God what you DON’T want. God is hard of hearing because so many people pray to him. You have to be very specific and tell God what you DO want. Because you’ll get what ever you pray for. And if you pray for what you don’t want- you’ll get it. LOL

            • winatlife says:

              Really? I am a beliver, but I have never heard it put this way. I know it is possible for me, because I’ve seen it – I do not text them because I seem to be in a mode that is not healthy, but safe of course. I have been dealing with great in certain ways men that I am not in love with.

              But it’s fun… These losers that I would never marry. I will settle down, but when? I waste my time with these men and limit myself. I know that. How do I get out of it? BTW, its the same guy, but he could never be a life partner for many reasons…

              Sorry – back to the blog topic if we need to. Anyone say it, and it’s done. Thanks.

          • Adgirl says:

            The idea is to avoid the “attractive but bad for you guys” right out the gate.
            It just makes everybody miserable when you try to “change” or “improve” your partner.

            My list:
            1.Is conservative with money (financial stability, doesn’t depend on the lottery for his retirement)
            2. No kids. (too complicated)
            3. Has a responsible position professionally.
            4. Someone I’d be proud to introduce to my parents, friends
            5. Enjoys art, history, neighborhood bars and the NFL.
            6. Likes to talk about things that are not about us – current events, art, history, reality TV.
            7. Knows about things I’d like to learn about.

            Notice, there is nothing about looks or personality. If religion is important to you put that on your list.

            When you meet a guy that meets a lot of your needs and there is chemistry … 🙂

            Good luck!

            • winatlife says:

              My List:
              Loves and Respects me
              Believes in God
              Respects his mother
              Works, and takes pride in his work
              Understands natural male and female roles
              Sees my natural beauty in the morning
              Understands my weave
              Takes on any chore that I seem to struggle with.

              These are things I want, but what do I need?

              • winatlife says:

                I am also very financially independent due to hard work and circumstances. That has been a deal breaker.

                Any Lynnfam member can call a time out on this conversation… I do not want to change the spirit of this blog.

                • Adgirl says:

                  I could not be happy in a marriage if
                  A) We were financially incompatible.
                  B) I was bored.
                  C) There was drama around ex’s/kids

                  After that it’s all personality & chemistry.
                  I avoided the deal killer guys after wasting my youth with a nice guy who never met a hard luck case or get rich quick scheme he didn’t want to give our money to..

                  • winatlife says:

                    Losing space here, but he is a pothead, unemployed, sexy dude. This is my dilemma. I let him go a couple of weeks ago, but do normal men have this kind of passion? I guess some do, but I am sooo impatient. Someone tell me something to make me resist the urges. I am a relatively young woman… In my mid 30s….

              • AZ Girl says:

                Yes and you just described my husband. Happily married for 27 years. So there is hope.

    OMG, Skating w/ the Stars AND Tabitha’s Salon Takeover BOTH on Mondays!

  39. error404 says:

    Ok, I’m gonna say two really unpopular things, but sorry, they’re just what I think:

    1. I think Danielle is really funny and her humor misunderstood. I think she’d be a blast to hang out with.

    2. I think Morgan is an ass, and if he were ugly, everybody would hate him. Even the famous Chef who spent just a few hours with him hated his guts.

    • Adgirl says:

      That’s funny! I haven’t watched it yet. Morgan is fantastic looking but a complete bunghole.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      I agree with you. And I’m very happy with the results tonight. Karma got Morgan right where it counted. Never tick off your sous chef. Or have a floppy souffle. And Heather didn’t even have to sabotage him.

      So what’s with deserts that are actually 3 deserts on a tray. Isn’t that a ton more work? Or is it deconstructed – whatever that means but they say it a lot.

    • JKW says:

      I think even if you think Morgan is attractive you would still consider him an ass. I know I do but he is a great chef. He might have won except for the souffle. I just had to agree with him about the Divas. Heather, Zac and Yigit were really annoying and blamed him for everything. If they weren’t so obnoxious I would have probably been rooting for Yigit. Even Danielle would have been fine. Eric was my first choice.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      I don’t see Danielle’s humor, guess what you see as quirks I see as ticks. I think their is something wrong with her.

      I can see how people would think Morgan is an ass- but he can cook. I don’t want to post a spoiler but …I guess I will wait till the blog is up.

  40. kmuellfa says:

    Duchess, I will keep my finger crossed for you!

    OT, but to whoever posted the recipe for cream cheese, feta, and pasta sauce served with a baguette, OMG, soooooo good !! I made a small batch yesterday as a test run for thanksgiving. Love it, thank you !

    • Zoey says:

      Good to know, I plan to try it. Did you serve the baguette sliced and each person spread the ‘dip’ on it at the table?

  41. LynnNChicago says:

    I know that some of you have questions about what happened over the past few days. You will find the majority of the story/drama over on Real City Housewife’s blog and through some of the links that are posted there. Some things were deleted, not here but some of the links.

    If you’re not interested in it, disregard this post, if you want to hear the story, the whole story from my point of view, please send me an email with “STORY” in the subject line and I’ll email you the whole story.

    It isn’t Housewives or Bravo drama and I don’t write blogs about Twitter wars or blog drama so it’ll be available by email only. It isn’t like Jill’s secret private email LOL Feel free to send it to anyone who might be interested.

    Just an email, it can be blank as long as “STORY” is in the subject line, I’ll email you what I know about all of this tomorrow (Thurs). Names will be protected of those who are innocent, all others are fair game! 🙂 lol

    That’s the last time I’ll talk about it here. Nite all

    • winatlife says:

      Nite. Thank you for the offer. I read a couple of pages, and sooo prefer Snark to the cray cray rants I read here. Lynn, you have earned a place in the paid blogesphere – no need to apologize, change your strategy, or be ashamed. I did happen to find RCH before your blog… RCH Cracks Me Up. We agree that she is a friggin riot, and I will never leave her blog, or yours due to the compassionate posters here.

      Keep fighting the good fight, and do not let these people deter you. We support what you are doing, and you deserve any financial rewards that you may reap. I do understand the fact that this is not something that takes a few minutes…

    • Zoey says:

      Thank you for the offer. It’s very thoughtful of you to go to the trouble.

    Did anyone hear that Sonja Morgan filed bankruptcy today. Seems she owes about 5 mil more than she is worth.

    • Adgirl says:

      Yes, it was strange because I read months ago that she had been sued by the production company but she lost by default by not responding – $7M.

      Very odd.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      yes – I guess her main asset is her townhome, and she couldn’t sell it. I guess if she was still married to a Morgan she wouldn’t have been allowed to do the show. So many of these women are/were living in homes they can’t afford. Sad.

      • lillybee says:

        Her divorce has not yet been finalized, I read.

      • error404 says:

        Which women? A divorcing/ed women being unable to afford upkeep on the house she received as settlement isn’t anything new. I’ll never forgot when our neighbor left his wife for a younger model, sold his half of the house during the split so she either had to borrow the money to pay him off or sell and move.

    • quincyil says:

      I had a conversation with my husband about how something like this could happen. He reminded me of the second mortgages that were on tv a few years ago. Want a vacation? Take a second mortgage on your highly overvalued home… People used home equity for their lifestyle. She probably did this to keep up with the Joneses. Then she got hit with the loss of a suit and a huge debt to the production company.

      I like Sonja, but little people are not going to be paid when she gets her second chance too. Taylor’s husband from BH had a bankruptcy and second chance in 2005. Did everyone get paid there? I am not sure we should give people second chance so they can throw 60,000 dollar birthday parties yet stiff hard working, honest people who provided services.

      I was in Walmart where a lady that I knew from my kids’ grade school had two baskets full of goods. She whispered that she hoped her credit card would work because they were to be canceled after her visit to bankruptcy court that morning. I’m sure she didn’t have millions in debt, but all I could think of was “you are stealing those two baskets of good right now. ” I think she wanted to share because she trusts me, but the whole thing bothered me.

      Sonja’s bankruptcy bothers me. Teresa and Taylor bother me too. People live above their means and then someone else gets hurt…. I hate this.

      • Zoey says:

        Wow Q, you are either up at the crack or couldn’t get to sleep. I hope it’s the former, by choice.

        Don’tcha just love it when someone ‘confides’ to you in a whisper something that is offensive? I never know how to handle that because I’m so insulted that they think I will obviously agree with them!

        Like when someone tells a racist or off color joke in a hushed tone, and expects you to enjoy it! I always think of a clever comeback much later but at the time usually just make a ‘I don’t approve of that’ face. Pretty lame!

    Just catching up now. Quincy—Thanks for the great blog & good morning.

    • quincyil says:

      Good morning, Boston and all readers. I watched the finale of the calorie festival last night. The chefs must not eat their creations. Lynn should have a lot to say about this.

  44. HD says:

    Morgan, Morgan, Morgan…I thought he might pull it out just because he had major technique and his stuff always seemed to taste well but once he started with that “acting like a girl” “bitch” “fairy” stuff I wanted anyone to win but him. Also, I did not think he was attractive in the least bit. The other guy was a cutie to me (yes I know he’s gay but he was cute). Morgan’s attitude lost him this competition and I am glad. You don’t go around making gay digs which we all know that is what they were.

    • quincyil says:

      A lot of gay men are more than cute. Some are good friends to women too. Sometimes, better friends than other women because they don’t constantly compete and send over verbal digs.

      I think Bravo and Andy are mean to gays in our Housewives series.

      Remember Jill, making those really awful comments about Alex’s stylist when he wore clothing that was “out of Jill’s box?” Jill was very hard on Brad, her friend. She insulted his decorating, his method of meeting people, his choice of clothing. I think Brad has reason to feel hurt by Jill Zarin. Jill Zarin makes anti gay remarks all of the time, but for some reason she gets a pass. I haven’t seen Jill with a female gay friend. I have several and I don’t live with 12,000,000 people. Why doesn’t Jill have a gay female friend?

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Since even the famous sous chef thought Morgan was awful, I’m going to give a pass to all the other chefs for their behavior toward him. So Yigit and Danielle (and wasn’t that hug cute in the grocery store) both came of as likeable in this last episode. Honestly, I was on the anyone but Morgan team. When his souffles imploded, I knew it was over. Little sigh of relief. What really bugged me was how much he talked about wondering if other people were going to sabotage him – like Heather. Me thinks he obsessed about it too much – and maybe dumped some soap in a certain someone’s ice cream base earlier in the season. Who makes ice cream that tastes like soap. There has to be more to it. Sorry – rambling today. Glad Yigit won.

  45. Adgirl says:

    I think Yigit was kind of a jerk during the competition too. Especially during the Diva days. Come to think of it I really didn’t like anybody very much on this show. Other than Gail, I could have skipped the entire season. I just wouldn’t want to hurt Gail’s feelings.
    I don’t know if it was contestants or the narrow scope of TCD but I was not entertained.
    Cardinal sin: Making desserts Boring.

    • error404 says:

      Morgan was just a more controlled version of crazy Seth. Often he could be nice and even warm to the others, but as soon as the pressure was on, he turned belligerent and nasty. Considering all the times he called someone a @#$%ing @#$% in the kitchen, I suspect he has some sort of cooking turret syndrome.

    • error404 says:

      Hmm… so I guess from my sleep positions: I’m perceived as open but often gruff, but really I’m suspicious and often warm heated, and sometimes I’m a good listener. LOL

    • AZ Girl says:

      I am surprised at the 1 in 4 married couples sleep in separate beds. Must be snoring problems. Personally I have very vivid dreams. Color, sound and I remember them in detail. I wonder what that means….time for a shrink?

  46. AZ Girl says:

    Perez Hilton’s site says that Sonja’s bankruptcy is due to a lawsuit filed against her production company for a movie that never “got off the ground”. There is a $7 million dollar judgment against her.

  47. error404 says:

    so sad… the detail of the Eva L divorce are coming out and it turns out he plays on Tiger Woods’ team. Are all athletes sluts?

    • error404 says:

      LOL.. sorry, I’m just picturing Kristi Yamagucci in a press conference admitting to a sexual addiction that all but ruined her family. Do you think Vonette Flowers keeps a different guy in each resort? What about Michelle Wii, is she a playah? lol

      • HD says:

        I don’t think all athletes cheat, I think it just makes the news which makes it seem epidemic. The squeaky wheel type of thing. I also think in that environment women are just everywhere and willing to do anything. The average man working a 9-5 is not going to have the opportunity to sleep with Victoria Secret models on a daily basis.

  48. JazzNightOut says:

    I am glad Yigit won, but most of all because I disliked Morgan more and more each episode. However, I thought Morgan would win because his desserts were beautiful to look at and, from the judges reactions, delicious to eat. However Yigit did lovely to look at work at well. Morgan just seemed to have ‘weight’ in terms of consistency. So I was prepared for him to win; just glad he didn’t, especially after his ‘cry like a girl’ comment. His homophobic attitude was there from the beginning when we saw him announce that he and 2 other chefs were heterosexual and he was glad he wasn’t alone with the admitted gay chefs. Do you think his marriage didn’t work because of his ‘personality’ disorder?

    • error404 says:

      the only two people I remember Morgan having anything nice to say about were crazy Seth and grumpy Heather C. Oh, and he would gives Yigit props as the only one there he considered up on his level as a chef. rolleyes

      considering how nasty he was to the women in the kitchen whenever the pressure was on, I’m not surprised his marriage had problems, but who knows.

    • error404 says:

      this relationship is by far the most interesting aspect of RHoBH IMO. I mean, what else are we left with… fake lying Taylor claiming she just wants to stay out of it, just mere hours after she tossed an entire can of gasoline on the fire. Blech.

  49. kmuellfa says:

    I just posted my recipe for yellow rice with pigeon peas on boston02127’s recipe blog. I have found this is a great way to use leftover ham and turkey, as well as a great change of pace from “holiday” food. I really hope someone tries it, and the recipes for annatto oil and sofrito have become staples in my kitchen. I don’t know what I would do without them.

  50. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @Kmuellfa, I will definitely be trying that recipe! My dad lived in the Bahamas for years and married a Bahamian woman who was a great cook. She made the best “Peas and Rice” ever. None of the Carribean people I know actually know how to make their native dishes it seems. Most are 2nd and 3rd generation who never learned the recipes from their moms. I have been wanting an authentic Pigeon Peas recipes for YEARS! I am so happy right now I’m doing The Cabbage Patch Dance 😉 Thank you!
