I Hate Jill Zarin Top Chef Just Desserts – The Finale

I Hate Jill Zarin    Top Chef Just Desserts – The Finale  Nov 18, 2010

The final three, Morgan, Danielle and Yigit.  I don’t think anyone really expected Danielle to win it all, lets face it, she’s a bit flaky and Top Chef doesn’t do flaky very well.  Her talking head interviews really make it seem as though she’s been drinking the cooking sherry or worse.  This contest has always been between Yigit and Morgan.

Top Chef doesn’t really like the bad guy either and Morgan emerged all season as a real ass, his hot temper and his name calling made him one of the least favorite Top Chef contestants of all time.  Morgan had absolutely no respect for his fellow chef’s but he did show another side of himself as he spoke with  his son on the phone and even teared up.

The final challenge.  Create a four course tasting menu for twelve diners in seven hours.  They all seemed immediately relieved to finally be allowed some artistic freedom, there are no restrictions, they didn’t hide the chocolate or give them any special guidelines to follow, this was their dream assignment.

In Top Chef Finale style, the chef’s are given professional assistants, not just professionals but some of the top pastry chefs in the country were assigned to our final three.  Elizabeth Faulkner, Claudia Fleming, and Sherry Yard are put to work by the finalists as they criticize each other one last time.  Morgan doesn’t necessarily feel that Danielle is using her professional assistant to the fullest extent as anyone can shell pistachio nuts.  At the same time Morgan seems to be providing a chemistry lesson to his helper.

Seven hours later the chef’s are done for day one and as they all explain their plans for their professional helpers the following day, predictably we learn that these famous pastry chef assistants will be replaced by former contestants and the pros will be diners rather than helpers.

The chefs chose their new assistants randomly with the dreaded cookie jar holding all of the names of those who’ve already packed their tools and gone.  Morgan, in typical Morgan style tells us that he would punch Zac in the face if it wouldn’t get him eliminated from the contest.  Luckily Zac’s name didn’t come out of that cookie jar in Morgan’s hand but rather Heather H was the lucky winner.

Surprisingly, no twist was thrown at these chef’s they were just allowed to create their best dishes.  Down and dirty baking!  The five former losers contestants who are not chosen as helpers are added to the diners list and will be providing input to the judges on their favorite dishes.

Here is where I think the judging would be more fun if each of the tasting menus would be served to the judges blind, without them knowing who created each dish.  Just a suggestion for next season Bravo.

Harmony reigns in the kitchen with the exception of Morgan who doesn’t seem to think that Heather can do anything right.  According to Morgan, Heather prepares the souffle cups incorrectly using butter and sugar yet he lets it go, luckily for him as it turns out Heather was his savior later on in the competition.

The judges even give a few digs at one another as they enjoy the twelve desserts prepared by the chefs.  Morgan has a serious issue with his souffle falling over on the plates and as he freaks out in the back of the kitchen, Heather, his assistant jumps in and cranks out the best ones to be served to the judges leaving the watery lumps of cake for the former contestants.  Morgan is impressed that Heather can just push through and get it done.

The judges seemed to enjoy all of the desserts, we hear very few complaints or criticism of the final dishes.  One diner notes that Danielle’s plating could be better and one dish was lacking salt.  Morgan’s collapsed souffle’s don’t go unnoticed but another of his dishes was described as a masterpiece.   Yigit’s food was called “brilliant” and “inspired”.

We don’t hear too much from the former contestants, they seem to be doing a lot of giggling and consuming alcohol.

Finally as the three finalists stand frozen and terrified in front of the judges, head judge Johnny pays them each one final compliment and Gail announces the winner…Yigit!  Bravo’s first Top Chef Just Desserts winner.  Congratulations Yigit!

I hope that if Bravo gives the green light to Season Two of Top Chef Just Desserts they make some changes to the crew as Head Judge Johnny is trying too hard to be Chef Tom, his counterpart on Top Chef and completely forgettable judge Dannielle Kyrillos added absolutely nothing to the show.  Only Gail Simmons was a pleasant surprise.  She was relaxed and pleasant, not trying to be Padma but actually became a much more enjoyable version of Padma.  Great job Gail!

Real Housewives News:

As most of you have heard by now, everyone’s favorite Housewife Sonja Morgan has filed for bankruptcy.  Many are already calling those of us who have been highly critical of Teresa Giudice of New Jersey hypocrites for not criticizing Sonja as well.  I find these situations to be quite different and while it’s not the best news for Sonja, she wasn’t shown on-screen wildly spending money on her child or buying clothes, taking expensive vacations on-screen the way Teresa was shown.

Sonja Morgan is forever attending and hosting charity events and she is not a violent hood rat….just sayin’.

Sonja seemed to have run into trouble while still married and she had committed to investing in a movie.  After divorcing, she had to back out of the committment as her bankroll changed substantially without access to an unlimited amount of funds through her husband.  Now on a “fixed salary” in the form of support from her ex-husband, funding this film was no longer an option.

One of the major differences that I think will emerge between the bankruptcy of Sonja Morgan and that of Teresa Giudice is that Sonja isn’t screwing over hard-working contractors, suppliers and business owners.  (that we know of)  It seems as though the bankruptcy is mostly affecting some Hollywood producers and really, I can live with that.  Obviously we don’t know the entire story, we don’t really know who will be affected by Sonja’s bankruptcy at this point but there are obvious differences between Sonja’s bankruptcy and Teresa’s.

As the details emerge, I’m sure we’ll have much more to discuss but I do find it interesting how Sonja’s story is mirroring Teresa’s and we seem to find ways to forgive Sonja for anything, including a driving while intoxicated charge, same as Joe Giudice and filing for bankruptcy just as the Giudice’s have done.

I also found it fascinating that the bankruptcy filing hit the news while Sonja was miles away in Morocco. Sonja must have a good PR person, I wonder if she’s paid them?

No word from Kelly since Monday, obviously the New York Housewives don’t have constant access to the internet while in Morocco but Jill managed to get a tweet off yesterday, here’s what she had to say:

@JillZarin:  Missing my baby Ginger and family. Need to come home soon. Get ready for thanksgiving. I hate all the killed turkeys for one meal on one day.  I’m eating veggies in protest!

Obviously Jill still has her priorities in order, her dog and then her family.  Way to save the world Jill, eat those veggie’s!

Simon always gives us great information, here is his latest tweet:

@SimonVanKempen:  Just had my final morning of school drop off sans @McCordAlex .Normality returns to our household later 2day & we’ve all missed her terribly

On an entirely different and personal note, I want to give a shout out and huge Thank you to Grace Charles (@GraceCharles on Twitter) for her unending support on Twitter and for her perseverance in ridding the Twitter world of some real trash.  Thank you Grace, you truly fit your name!

I’ve received some unbelievable support on Twitter and on other sites around the internet.  Thank you to all of you!

Until Next Time…

    sorry, just wanted to bring over from the last blog:

    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.

  2. T-REX says:

    At least with Sonja’s bankruptcy, we probably won’t be seeing information that she is hiding “undisclosed” assets as are The Juicy’s. Sonja will probably handle her situation with complete “class”, unlike The Juicy’s who handled it like “ass”es.

    • LynnBird says:

      Also, Sonja filed CH 11 which DOES NOT discharge all debts.

      Teresa filed CH 7 which does eliminate all debt (although considering the circumstances, this might not happen.)

      I will be interested in hearing more details regarding Sonja’s filing.

      • JKW says:

        I’m actually surprised that she didn’t have her company incorporated and separate from her personal money. Usually you do that and have insurance for the business. I assume you would have some kind of insurance if you are investing in films in case things went bad. I would think the producers would also.

  3. boston02127 says:

    Thanks for the new blog Lynn.

  4. abbysomething says:

    I feel without a doubt Sonja’s situation, is much different than Teresa’s. Just as Sonja herself is different than Teresa. It’s much easier to feel sympathy for someone who didn’t see their situation coming, didn’t lie about it, and in general shows compassion for others and let’s face it, when Sonja did spend, it wasn’t on a truck load of tacky. Sonja didn’t have a lavish party for an infant who wont even remember it. Sonja doesn’t leap up to attack mentally ill people, she has the sense not to engage and if all that weren’t enough, Sonja, unlike Teresa, knows there is a T sound in the word Manhattan!

    People telling you to give Sonja just as much grief as you would give Teresa are missing a fundamental point…..You don’t like her! Even if their offenses were the same, which they are not, you’re not going to be as understanding of someone you don’t like. period. It’s not a moral issue. What is that, the you’re not fair defense? Who are these babies who can’t think outside that air filled box on their shoulders?

    On another note, I had to laugh at Jill’s turkey protest. Only that superficial woman would have a one day a year stance on animal rights. I guess the other 364 days aren’t as bad because she doesn’t see anything about it on the airport tv. Nevermind the chicken conditions that KFC ignores, there is no chicken holiday so Jill wont compute. Does she tweet to confirm her brain deadedness?! Wasn’t this woman wearing fur last year? I feel like I’m taking crazy pills. Next she’ll protest NBC to advocate for the peacock. ugh

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      ahhh…crazy pills….

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Ah, once again Jill is trying to be snarky/witty – and FAILED!

    • MickeyMouth says:

      As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly! – Don’t know why I just thought of that, lol.

      To answer your question, yes. I do believe Jill tweets to confirm she is brain dead. 😛

      • cusi77 says:

        Ha! Kat you cracked me up… Jill confirms is brain dead.. Just in case someone has any doubt! Ha!

      • JazzNightOut says:

        Only Jill pronounces ‘brain dead’ as ‘need for public attention.’

      • jillz68 says:

        Because that was THE BEST WKRP ever!!!!! I need to see that episode again. I never saw my dad laugh so hard as when that was on.

        • justanothermary says:

          That was a great epi, but my all time fav was when Herb accidently painted his daughter’s frog, Green Peace. I laughed out loud through that whole show.

        • kbinldo says:

          It’s on YouTube in a few segments. But yes, FUNNIEST.SHOW.EVER. (especially since the punchline, which they built up to from scene 1, was a throwaway line).

      • klmh says:

        I tried to find what you were referring to, about the turkeys not being able to fly. Here is some information about turkeys, and yep they can fly. You are probably referring to Jill? Anyway, here goes: http://www.kidzone.ws/animals/turkey.htm

      • sweet pea says:

        WKRP in Cincinatti!!! Love it!

      • sweet pea says:

        WKRP in Cincinatti! Love it!

      • JKW says:

        Mickey ..that is funny. I don’t know if anyone remembers a show WKRP in Cincinnati ? The radio station did a PR event around Thanksgiving. They dropped all these live turkeys from a plane. Needless to say the turkeys dropped like bombs all over the people and cars. People were running so they weren’t hit by the turkeys. None of them realized they couldn’t fly.

        • American Idiot says:

          Thanks, JKW, for the explanation. I was wondering what the “flying turkeys” had to do with WKRP.

    • BessiB says:

      They difference is that Teresa spent money she did not have, then does not want to pay money back from what she does have. Sonja did not spend the money she contracted to, because she later did not have it. At least she did not take it from someone else.

  5. ramonacoaster says:

    From what I’ve seen on RHONYC, I like Sonja. I feel bad that she’s in this economic situation. I’ve never cared for Teresa. From what I’ve seen – she’s stupid, classless, and tasteless. It’s strange that we’re seeing two completely different women that have been hit hard financially. I hope we see Sonja deal with it differently than Teresa and reflect that class that we’ve seen her exude.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      I do too.

      I am interested in seeing how she will handle this and comparing and contrasting that to how Teresa is handling her bankruptcy.

      Although Sonja is single with no man to emotionally support her. Then again so is Teresa.

  6. WindyCityWondering says:

    Overall, I liked Top Chef Just Desserts – because I would have sampled everything! Hopefully, Bravo will learn to select more contestants based on talent and less on crazy, will make the challenges more interesting and figure out a better way to weave the contestants who are eliminated back into the show. As for the judges – stick to the desserts, stay out of the personalities and teach me alittle something something on a topic I love!

  7. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @Kmuellfa, I left a comment for you on the other thread regarding the recipes ;-).

    • kmuellfa says:

      TLD, I am so excited for you! I learned to cook it because my friend has cooked for me and my BF and we both loved it so much I had to have her teach me. ( I learned to make Cuban ropa vieja and vaca fritas the same way-ate it and was obsessed!)
      IIRC, you live in southern California, so you should have no trouble finding fresh sofrito in a hispanic market. When I make sofrito, I pretty much use Daisy’s recipe. Don’t forget to pick up some mojo crillojo, it will be fab w/ your tilapia. The anchiote oil is easy to make, and you’ll find you use it often.

      Please let me know how it goes, I’m excited to pass on my friend’s recipe!

  8. cusi77 says:

    Thank you Lynn for this great Blog!

    I listen you Radio Program! You go Girl! You have a lot of talent… not to wonder why you are so successful! You deserve EVERY piece of recommencement! I adore you!

    You are amazing!

  9. TrueLifeDiva says:

    Good morning everyone 😀

  10. lol if ppl dont like this blog then why the hell do they care what she blogs about then? ppl really have to much time on their hands.

  11. Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

    Here is a small off topic rant.
    I will NEVER buy Gold Bond Medicated Powder. Ever. Why? Well, let me preface this buy saying I live in Ohio. Ohio is one of those states that people make fun of saying we have a lot of “hillbillies” etc. And we probably do. We also have large cities, opera houses, colleges, and many other cultural and educational establishments. But we are never represented well in the media.
    Goldbond has this commercial out. People are giving testimonials to the wonders of this magic powder while their first name and where they live are written on the screen beneath them.
    John from California—very normal, sporty guy, “I use Gold Bond at the gym.”
    Cathy from New York—very normal, youngish mom, “I use Gold Bond for my baby’s diaper rash.”
    etc. etc. AND THEN
    There she is . I shit you not. VERLA from OHIO. Verla is a larger than average woman in a brightly flowered mumy, with very few physical qualities to recommend her. She has a bland stare and states (in phonics–so you can hear it I hope) “AH Hade me a turble ishy rashe and Gold Bond surely took cur of it.”
    Seriously? An entire state to choose from and this is the representative you chose to speak for the Ohio Gold Bond users. Really? Nice.

    • cdnfillie58 says:

      oh my…lmao..(not at the commercial but your rant) u r funny
      My hubby currently works and therefore has to reside in Ohio, 1 hr from Columbus actually, near Chilicothe, that part of the state is beautiful so I agree they could have found someone a little less “hillbillish”…but then we Canadians sometimes get the same misconception about what it’s like here in the Great WHite North 😛

    • DarkSonnet says:

      Since when did Ohio start becoming the bullseye on a target for negative statements? It really is becoming blatant and it is offensive.
      JMO

      • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

        I dunno. I just know that commercial pissed me off. I have lived here all my life, and traveled around the country quite a bit. I could have moved to another state 3 times but I genuinely like Ohio. And I love Cincinnati. Where else can you find a street festival that promotes beer, bratwurst and Chicken Dancing all at the same time! 🙂

        • DarkSonnet says:

          Nowhere!! And throw in a bowl of Skyline…

          • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

            Hey! now there is an idea. Have to go to the grocery anyway, so now I will also grab some lunch.

            • kmuellfa says:

              Oh boy. This means I have to post my cinncinnati chili recipe on Boston’s blog. My Dad is from Erlanger KY (right across the border) and was raised on the stuff. He taught me how to make it, but up until 6 years ago, I had forgotten all about it.

    • Dutchess, can you imagine if you lived in New Jersey? your feelings would be hurt all the time! no state takes more verbal abuse than New Jersey! i never hear anyone make fun of Ohio! i think “pleasant valleys” when i think Ohio.

    • twoile says:

      DDl sorry your state was/is so shamefully misrepresnted….I never was aware of the stereo type U describe…..to bad…Gold bond hand cream is excellent.

    • ramonacoaster says:

      i’ve always wanted to visit Ohio. Seems like there’s a lot going on there with lots of colorful people.

  12. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @Duchess, I’m doing good. I pulled a muscle in my foot over the weekend and it’s really hamperd my workouts. It’s slowly getting better and today I’m have a foot reflexology massage :-D. I keep forgetting I’m no longer a teenager!

    • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

      This is a prime example of why I promote my sedentary lifestyle. It is hard to injure yourself sitting on a couch with a dog lying on either side of you for warmth! LOL Hope you get to feeling better and enjoy the massage!

    This made my day!! I was just working on a gawd awful list of “getting ready for Thanksgiving when you back has just gone out”. I so needed this!

  16. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @Duchess, oh my! I feel the same way when the word “Bama” is used to call someone stupid. I have a co-worker, Ca born and bred who always says, “he’s not just dumb, he’s country Bama dumb.” After I cuss him out I explain that there is a difference between Southern and Country-fied. We’ve had this coversation so many times it’s almost scripted ;-). I once had a co-worker ask me, with a straight face, if Alabama had finally all converted to indoor plumbing. I hate stereotypes.

    • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

      For those who read my own little blog, you know my husband and his family originally lived in pure “hillbilly heaven” I do acknowledge these areas in the Appalachian Mountains, I am okay with them. I just think out of the millions of people living in this state a better representative with a full command of the english language (proper) could have been found.
      It reminds me of newscasts when they get a “live, eyewitness report” and there are 20 guys standing in suits and ties in the background while the reporter talks to Joe Toothless who “seed him whut huppend”. Drives me crazy!

    Re Sonja

    It seems her bankruptcy is indeed related to the promise she made to produce a movie. It deals with the contract, that unfortunately is being enforced and she was being forced to pay. The movie will probably not be made due to the bankruptcy, but even if she paid those suing could have used it to make a different movie or fund another project, all without her receiving a dime.

    Sonja was an investor. She didn’t use services or goods and then refuse to pay. She didn’t order high end goods from working people with the intention of purposely stiffing them. She is different from TMAN. She has a forehead and her knuckles don’t drag on the floor! 🙂

    I think that, at best, Morgan is overly emotional, and at worst has some kind of mental health socialization issue.

    I don’t know the backstory, but I bet there is one. He must be going thru a custody battle or something because he bursts into tears whenever his son is mentioned, and that just ain’t… I’ll say “typical” in lieu of “normal”.

    He loses his cool often under pressure, and his reaction are always OTT… like ones “normal” people would have, but highly exagerated. For ex: Zac’s pissy “he doesn’t win happy” exit speech was petty and uncalled for. I think anyone would be pissed at Zac for that, and most of us would just leave it with a barbed comment. Not our Morgan, no he has go all OTT with homophobic remarks and wishes of violence. He’s not wrong to be mad at Zac, but jeeze dude, chill out. Were lives lost?

    Another ex is his calling Danielle a @#$ing @#$% after they argued over plastic wrap. Or Buttergate! Yeah, people hoarding things is annoying, but come on. That was such an OTT reaction. His reactions never seem to have any perspective or control.

    Are contestants not allowed paxil during filming?

    • error404 says:

      I also think these shows are attracting the desperate more so that the crazy. Morgan said last night something like: he needed to win so he could be in a better place and be with his son. I assumed he meant his physical habitat. Divorce is often devastating, and who knows, maybe he’s crashing on someone’s couch and therefor only gets visitation rights. But often we see just how bad off these contestant shave it with debt and family situations, and come to the show as a last ditch effort to survive, adding immense pressure to the inherent pressure of the competition.

  22. I have some very inappropriate (OMG but they are funny) ones to but I think one day I am going to make a blog post with some funny jokes I have saved that I have gotten over the past couple years. I want to use word press and not blog spot but can’t figure how to use it. Especially if you have to put in an AUDIO I have over 100 jokes If you all think I should do it i will. I want to make sure that ppl would read them.

  23. Grandma is eighty-eight years old and still GOING..

    Dear Grand-daughter,

    The other day I went up to our local Christian book store and saw a
    ‘Honk if you love Jesus’ bumper sticker ..

    I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting.

    So, I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper.

    Boy, am I glad I did; what an uplifting experience that followed.

    I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good he is, and I didn’t notice that the light had changed.

    It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn’t honked, I’d never have noticed.

    I found that lots of people love Jesus!

    While I was sitting there, the guy behind started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, ‘For the love of God!’
    ‘Go! Go! Go! Jesus Christ, GO!’

    What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus!

    Everyone started honking!

    I just leaned out my window and started waving and smiling at all those loving people.

    I even honked my horn a few times to share in the love!;

    There must have been a man from Florida back there because I heard him yelling something about a sunny beach.

    I saw another guy waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air.

    I asked my young teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant.

    He said it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something.

    Well, I have never met anyone from Hawaii , so I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign right back.

    My grandson burst out laughing.

    Why even he was enjoying this religious experience!!

    A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars and started walking towards me.

    I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but this is when I noticed the light had changed.

    So, grinning, I waved at all my brothers and sisters, and drove on through the intersection.

    I noticed that I was the only car that got through the intersection before the light changed again and felt kind of sad that I had to leave them after all the love we had shared.

    So I slowed the car down, leaned out the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as I drove away. Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!!

    Will write again soon,

    Love, Grandma

    @justtomakeulaugh, I tried to look on Twitter but your account is locked/private 😦
    If you do a blog featuring your “comedy stylings” I will definitely check it out. I’m signed up on BlogSpot and WordPress so its not a problem. Looking forward to it 😀

  25. error404 says:

    I think Danielle came close to winning that any of us either predicted or perhaps care to admit.

    Her whole “style” for lack of a better word is childish.. it’s always woopie pie this or rocky road that, like she’s trapped in a kiddie birthday party, yet the judges always rave about her food.

    At least twice last night I though she was a goner… 1. when chef Johnny complained that her ice cream flight was a simplistic cop out
    and 2 when she described her last dish as “the kind of oozing melty pudding cake you make as a kid”. Yikes!

    Yet, some of the world’s top chef’s raved about both dishes, not only as delishious, but complicated and sophisticated. Wow.

    I thought they would dismiss her early as the distant 3rd, as these shows often do, but no, I really think they seriously considered her as a possible winner.

  26. Dear Santa,

    You must be surprised that I’m writing to you today, the 26th of December. Well, I would very much like to clear up certain things that have occurred since the beginning of the month, when, filled with illusion, I wrote you my letter. I asked for a bicycle, an electric train set, a pair of roller blades, and a football uniform.

    I destroyed my brain studying the whole year. Not only was I the first in my class, but I had the best grades in the whole school. I’m not going to lie to you, there was no one in my entire neighborhood that behaved better than me, with my parents, my brothers, my friends, and with my neighbors. I would go on errands, and even help the lderly cross the street. There was virtually nothing within reach that I would not do for humanity.

    What balls do you have leaving me a f**king yo-yo, a stupid whistle and a pair of socks. What the f**k were you thinking, you fat son of a bitch, that you’ve taken me for a sucker the whole f**king year to come out with some shit like this under the tree. As if you hadn’t f**ked me enough, you gave that little faggot across the street so many toys that he can’t even walk into his house.

    Please don’t let me see you trying to fit your big fat ass down my chimney next year. I’ll f**k you up. I’ll throw rocks at those stupid reindeer and scare them away so you’ll have to walk back to the f**king North Pole, just like what I have to do now since you didn’t get me that f**king bike. F**K YOU SANTA. Next year you’ll find out how bad I can be, you FAT-SON-OF-A-BITCH.

    Sincerely,
    Little Johnny

    Little Johnny

    I would have to know more about Sonya’s situation. If she herself was not a millionaire before she got married I do not think it is wise to invest your husband’s money into something when stuff can hit the fan. Was the marriage shaky? Did he tell her not to do it? The list goes on and on and on.

    The problem I have is so many of these women get caught up with their husbands and its like they have forgotten who they were and what they did before they started living the good life. That is one reason why I like Vicki. She is getting a divorce and I am sure she can still afford to stay in her home. I liked her work ethic. I see this happen to women a lot and we need to be a little smarter. Your husband is not guaranteed to finance your movie making career. If your husband walks out on you to upgrade for a newer model, you should not be destitute. As women we need to have some financial smarts about ourselves. You see Sonya’s husband was smart. It appears SHE is the ONLY ONE caught up in this mess and not him. I wonder why?

    • I bet THEY don’t want us to know lol

    • DarkSonnet says:

      She was not a millionaire before her marriage to this much older wallet. She was considered to be “a well connected hostess” in an upscale restaurant.

      She claims that her divorce was totally unexpected and that her divorce papers were served the day after she signed the final papers for the movie. I believe that her name was the only name concerning the production company.

      I think she is in a bind with attempting to sell the house. She has put it on the market only to have to remove it due to the liens that have been placed against it. (large liens)

      We always have to wonder what the true back story is with all of these women. Not everybody is as vapidly transparent as Jill Zarin.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      Vicki irritated the hell out of me BUT you are absolutely spot on every observation you have made regarding her $ and her work ethic.

      She spoke up with Gretchen regarding finances and I think she did with Tamra too. They both rolled their eyes at her, and where are they now?

      I just wish she wasn’t so f*ing annoying. whoo hoo!

      • HD says:

        I think I was just raised with a different mindset then this women. I have always had to struggle and in struggling I learned I had to make it and I learned the HARD WAY that I would never, ever, ever (did I say ever?) depend on anyone to house me, feed me, clothe me or my child. Period. If my husband was to walk out today I can STILL eat and pay my rent and I own my car, etc. Even if you have millions of dollars you should not depend on ANYONE to bankroll you and your lifestyle because ANYTHING can happen. Shoot, a husband doesn’t even have to leave just suppose he died or something. Look at Gretchen… I don’t know how these women were raised.

      • I wonder if Vickie will have to pay Donn off? I’m sure she makes more than him,right?
        Maybe he’ll just move into the smaller house they bought and never moved into.
        Donn doesn’t seem to be the type to want to take from Vickie, but he could make out pretty well here, don’t you think?

        • HD says:

          He could make out pretty good I would imagine. I agree with you, he doesn’t seem like the type to be greedy but just as she would do him, because we all know she would, he should get his fair share.

          • Had Enough! says:

            California is a community property state. W/out a pre-nup, basically everything acquired after the date of the marriage is split 50/50 unless the parties agree otherwise. Now don’t forget – we know Vicki works hard and earns a lot of money, but that wasn’t always the case. When she married Donn, she had two young kids – they were married 16 years so Brianna was what – maybe 8 yrs old? So it is entirely possible that Donn brought a lot more into the marriage than she did in those earlier years. And he worked too, though we know he was out of work for a year or so at least. Anyway, I doubt it is all Vicki’s money that is at stake here.

      • twoile says:

        Ditto……didn’t like her OOT controling behaviors IE buying her dtr a car & then presenting her w/the pmt bk. “Visiting” her son & his frat….drinking w/them etc as if she were a peer & invited. I will B happy 2 live w/o the gad awful screaming woo woos.

        • i agree w/you..she would do it. remember when Jeana said”he would give you the shirt off his back, Vickie would sell it to you.”
          i almost died when Vickie” bought” her daughter the car and then told her she(Briana, the daughter) would make the payments. Never got over that one.

          • JKW says:

            I don’t think that her daughter paying is a bad thing. I am sure Vicki wanted her daughter to know she had to be responsible. Look at the difference btw her kids and the Curtins. They are given everything and learned no responsibility and think they should have anything they ask for. I think Vicki wanted her to daughter to be able to budget and work for the car. I actually think it’s better than just handing them everything ..esp when so many of them are broke.

    • Had Enough! says:

      Actually, I am waiting for the **it to hit the fan for Vicki, too. I know her website says full-service but if I recall correctly, her speciality was long-term care insurance. Which is really hitting the skids these days. Major companies like Met Life are closing their long-term care lines. And long-term care insurance is expensive and value doesn’t accrue (like life insurance). It is more like car insurance – the minute you stop paying, you have no benefits whatsoever. So you can pay 3k/yr for 20 years (60k) and then for whatever reason (job loss, financial problems, whatever) you don’t pay the next year, well sorry but you are SOL. You have no benefits. Plus word is that companies were (no surprise here) doing all sorts of things to avoid paying claims. So if that is her bread-and-butter, look for some burnt toast in the near future.

      • HD says:

        Doesn’t Vicki have a jean line or endorsed a jean line?

      • ramonacoaster says:

        There’s a reasons why companies are going down hill. It’s because paying out those benefits, particularly long term care is extremely costly. It’s getting to be more and more expensive to die of old age these days. Also the return on investment of the premium is negative. People do need long term care insurance and need to really research the few companies that offer long term care in their state and how they’re doing financially.

    • JazzNightOut says:

      I believe she started a production company, Sonja Productions. Without knowing their marriage, it is hard to know why he didn’t support her financially in this. Or if he did, why he pulled out. I have no real info on this, just the impression she was and is trying to do something for herself. This may not have been a wise choice. I think she is also writing a novel, but for how long and about what I don’t know. Because I too like her, it is hard for me to see her as a Juicy flake. What goes thru my mind is that, altho, she has worked for a living, she wanted to upgrade her work to production and writing, but didn’t expect the divorce and is trying to come to terms with what this means for her career wise now.

      • JazzNightOut says:

        Just went back and read the posts upline from mine. More info on all aspects than I had, and may have to expand my opinion of Sonja to include that info. Still like her, but my empathy for her situation is a little less.

  29. girlygirlnyc says:

    I think the difference between Theresa and Sonja is that Sonja is admitting it up front. She is not running around denying that she is in financial trouble. I really don’t think T had any clue how bad their situation was. If, once she found out, she stopped spending and said, “wow, I feel like an ass for blowing all that money on stupid things” – I think she would have had more sympathy.

    Did anyone notice on Top Chef when they were showing the chefs getting ready in the morning that Morgan was popping some sort of pill? It could be vitamins, it could be “Morgan’s little helper” or it could explain a whole lot about his behavior.

    Just another joke to add to the rest of the posts. This always makes me smile & laugh.

    – Don’t Ever Judge a Chili Contest – CHILI CONTEST

    *Note: Please take time to read this slowly. If you pay attention to the first two judges, the reaction of the third judge is even better! For those of you who have lived in Texas, you know how true this is. They actually have a Chili Cook-off about the time the Rodeo comes to town. It takes up a major portion of the parking lot at the Astrodome.

    The notes are from an inexperienced Chili taster named Frank, who was visiting Texas from the East Coast:

    Frank: “Recently, I was honored to be selected as a judge at a chili cook-off. The Judge #3 called in sick at the last moment and I happened to be standing there at the judge’s table asking for directions to the Budweiser truck, when the call came in. I was assured by the other two judges (Native Texans) that the chili wouldn’t be all that spicy and, besides, they told me I could have free beer during the tasting, so I accepted.”

    Here are the scorecards from the event:

    Chili # 1 (Mike’s Maniac Mobster Monster Chili) Judge # 1 — A little too heavy on the tomato. Amusing kick.
    Judge # 2 — Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild.
    Judge # 3 — (Frank) Holy shit, what the hell is this stuff? You could remove dried paint from your driveway. Took me two beers to put the flames out. I hope that’s the worst one. These Texans are crazy.

    Chili # 2 (Arthur’s Afterburner Chili) Judge # 1 — Smoky, with a hint of pork. Slight jalapeno tang.
    Judge # 2 — Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken seriously.
    Judge # 3 — Keep this out of the reach of children. I’m not sure what I’m supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people who wanted to give me the Heimlich maneuver. They had to rush in more beer when they saw the look on my face.

    Chili # 3 (Fred’s Famous Burn Down the Barn Chili) Judge # 1 — Excellent firehouse chili. Great kick. Needs more beans.
    Judge # 2 — A beanless chili, a bit salty, good use of peppers.
    Judge # 3 — Call the EPA. I’ve located a uranium spill. My nose feels like I have been snorting Drano. Everyone knows the routine by now.
    Get me more beer before I ignite. Barmaid pounded me on the back, now my backbone is in the front part of my chest. I’m getting shit-faced from all of the beer!

    Chili # 4 (Bubba’s Black Magic) Judge # 1 — Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing.
    Judge # 2 — Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish or other mild foods, not much of a chili.
    Judge # 3 — I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to taste it. Is it possible to burn out taste buds?
    Sally, the barmaid, was standing behind me with fresh refills.
    That 300-lb. bitch is starting to look HOT… just like this nuclear waste I’m eating! Is chili an aphrodisiac?

    Chili # 5 (Linda’s Legal Lip Remover) Judge # 1 — Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground, adding considerable kick. Very impressive.
    Judge # 2 — Chili using shredded beef, could use more tomato.
    Must admit the cayenne peppers make a strong statement.
    Judge # 3 — My ears are ringing, sweat is pouring off my forehead and I can no longer focus my eyes. I farted and four people behind me needed paramedics. The contestant seemed offended when I told her that her chili had given me brain damage. Sally saved my tongue from bleeding by pouring beer directly on it from the pitcher. I wonder if I’m burning my lips off. It really pisses me off that the other judges asked me to stop screaming. Screw those rednecks.

    Chili # 6 (Vera’s Very Vegetarian Variety) Judge # 1 — Thin yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good balance of spices and peppers.
    Judge # 2 — The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, and garlic. Superb.
    Judge #3– I shit myself when I farted and I’m worried it will eat through the chair. No one seems inclined to stand behind me except that slut Sally. She must be kinkier than I thought. Can’t feel my lips anymore. I need to wipe my ass with a snow cone.

    Chili # 7 (Susan’s Screaming Sensation Chili) Judge # 1 — A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers.
    Judge # 2 — Ho hum, tastes as if the chef literally threw in a can of chili peppers at the last moment. I should take note that I am worried about Judge #3. He appears to be in a bit of distress as he is cursing uncontrollably.
    Judge # 3 — You could put a grenade in my mouth, pull the pin, and I wouldn’t feel a thing. I’ve lost sight in one eye, and the world sounds like it is made of rushing water. My shirt is covered with chili, which slid unnoticed out of my mouth. My pants are full of lava-like shit to match my shirt. At least during the autopsy, they’ll know what killed me. I’ve decided to stop breathing, it’s too painful. Screw it; I’m not getting any oxygen anyway. If I need air, I’ll just suck it in through the 4-inch hole in my stomach.

    Chili # 8 (Tommy’s Toe-Nail Curling Chili) Judge # 1 — The perfect ending, this is a nice blend chili. Not too bold but spicy enough to declare its existence.
    Judge # 2 — This final entry is a good, balanced chili. Neither mild nor hot. Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge # 3 passed out, fell over and pulled the chili pot down on top of himself. Not sure if he’s going to make it. Poor dude, wonder how he’d have reacted to really hot chili?

    • quincyil says:

      Me too…

      I was just thinking about the dynamics in the home of Sonja Morgan prior to the decision of her husband to end the marriage. Remember the drunken Sonja rambling about not knowing what she had done wrong that he ended their marriage. She thought she had met her match and that is why she married him. That and the Morgan fortune… perhaps? Normally, the hottest girl on the block doesn’t go for the old man who is penniless.

      I have a feeling that committing to millions of dollars for Sonja productions might have been the straw that broke the camel’s back. Morgan family members might not be happy about 7 million dollars being pledged… without signed contracts from John Travolta. I smell snake oil salesmen.

      So… 7 million loss in settlement…a couple of million for lawyers…. What happened to the other 10,000,000 dollars? That is a lot of money for a toaster oven.

      I remembered a lot about Sonja from season one while thinking… Her house was empty. That was more than a few days of dog poo in the back yard so the maid had been missing for several days. She wore a black dress to the renewal event saying it was very old and didn’t fit as she tried to keep her breasts covered. Restaurants donate food and staff for her charity parties.
      She wore Ramona’s knock off jewelry on the island, not real jewels that you might want to rob when she was on the way to her room.

      She really backtracked about dating men too. She said that Thurs. was her only date night and that she would have supper with her daughter and would go out on a date while the girl visited with her father. Sounds like only a few hours for that date. Sonja said she didn’t go out on weekends as she went to the Hamptons with her daughter. I looked for her Hampton house and there was none. She lives in a cottage on a friend’s estate as a guest on weekends.

      I suspect, the hubby moved out and Sonja had no money. The divorce wasn’t settled so she lived off the equity she could find in her town house. When you spend that way, you accumulate debt.

      The Celebrity new worth site must be bogus. The site still states that she is worth 30,000,000 today and we know that isn’t true.

      • AZ Girl says:

        It is really sad. If you are not experience in the movie industry it will eat you alive. I have no doubt that Travolta had his agent set really high demands for his role. Why wouldn’t he? He does not have work. His royalties from Kotter and Look Who Talking alone pay the bills.

        I have seen many women who have married wealthy men just get screwed in the divorce. They don’t know where the husbands assets are or what entities have been set up to “hide” those assets. Many don’t even look at the tax returns that they sign.

        Personally, if you marry wealth, snoop. Plain and simple.

      • DarkSonnet says:

        If I remember correctly, Sonja is permitted to use several of the Morgan residences ONLY if her daughter is with her. Sort of the daughter can use the residences and Sonja can tag along strictly as “guest” of her daughter. The visits are preplanned. No other privileges at the residences.

  44. American Idiot says:

    OFF TOPIC – My 17 yr. old son wants to go see the Harry Potter premier tonight. Starts at midnight, end at 3 am. I said no, because:

    1. He will never get up for school tomorrow.
    2. According to NJ law, a 17 yr. old should not be driving after 11 PM.
    3. He is not a Harry Potter fan; has not read any of the books except the first, which we read together.

    Apparently I’m the only parent who has said no to this little adventure. I’m holding my ground. But boy, it’s tough sometimes, parenting a teen.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Good for you, you did the right thing (in my opinion) One of the great things about Harry Potter is that it got kids reading and if he had read them all and was a big fan of Harry Potter, I would say, let him go.

      He obviously just wants to go because all of his friends are going and you just know those kids aren’t going to make it to school tomorrow.

      Offer to take him Friday after school or to a Sat afternoon showing, see if he’s still interested in going? 🙂 (again all my opinion)

      My 10-year old wants to go too LMAO Not a chance!

      • American Idiot says:

          I found some info on tickets for the movie, and I don’t think he would be able to get in, well, maybe… but I thought you could show him these to make your point 🙂
          With less than 24 hours to go until the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 (!!!), we’ve received the following ticket sale updates from our friends at Fandango:
          – Over 2,200 showtimes are sold out
          – 96% of all ticket sales on Fandango are for Harry Potter

      I’m going with my son to watch it. We both love Harry Potter and have read all the books. I did warn him that he will have a rough day at school tomorrow but he is still going no matter how tired he is. 🙂 He is a senior and only has four classes so I think he will be ok. He is taking a nap right now though, getting ready. LOL 🙂 Our local movie theater started selling the tickets at noon today and it didn’t take long to sell out.

    Hang tough! The above are three very legitimate reasons for saying “no”. Just remember – many other parents are being fed the same “everybody else is allowed to go” sob story. Been there, heard it all. I also had girls who were much more creative than their brothers. ;o)

      I have a girl, too. But older, practically on her own now. But yes, she was quite creative in her day. It’s funny to find out now all the “white lies” she told me when she was in HS.

    My husband and I are going to HARRY POTTER Saturday, at the IMAX, at 1:15p.m. and we CANNOT wait! We are listening to the audio 6th book to remind us about the twists and turns of the plot, as if we could. If you haven’t heard Jim Dale on the audios of H.P. you are missing something fabulous. Im not kidding. He has won more awards for his work on these books and he deserves every award. I thinks he does 146 voices. Its all him.
    I have a little pin that my sister picked up for me from the Harry Potter village at Universal, and Im going to wear it. Queer, huh? Too bad, I love JK Rowling’s books!

    • klmh says:

      And yes, we have tickets. Senior citizen tickets. 🙂

    • klmh says:

      could forget. See, Im so excited!

    • neroes says:

      Have you ever gone to mugglenet.com? Excellent HP site. I just finished the second reading of the books. Can’t wait for the movie.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      I’m a big fan too, we’re going Saturday afternoon as well, Can’t wait! Ah Daniel Radcliff..if I were 20 years younger LOL

      • klmh says:

        Oh, if I was 40 years younger and not totally and completely in love with my husband. He sure is a cutey-pattutey. Well so is the hubs…

    • LucyHPotter says:

      klmh,

      I’m a HUGE Harry Potter fan hence my online name =) I’m also going to see it at the IMAX tomorrow night. Please dont laugh at me but I am going to wear my Gryffindor hat and scarf. I also have a wand! I’ve read Deathly Hollows twice in the past couple of months and I still cry over the last battle at Hogwarts. If you ladies knew my real age I know you would definetly think I’m crazy but I can’t help it!

      • klmh says:

        Cool! I haven’t seen their hats and scarves. And a wand!!!!!! How great is that? A few months ago when we were in Boulder Co. I think it was there, anyway, they had wands for sale. Sterling handles and tips, just over the top!
        Be sure to write and let me know how you enjoyed the movie. Don’t forget!
        Have you listened to the audio? Honestly, its better than chocolate! Jim Dale is fabulous. Google him and you can see all the awards he’s won for the HP tapes.
        I feel the same way about my age, but as I wrote above we bought senior citizen tickets. Hope its 60 or over, not 65 🙂

        • LucyHPotter says:

          Of course I’ll let you know how it went. Yes I have all the audio books in my itouch. I listen to them from time to time while in the train to work. I dont know much about Jim Dale but I’ll make sure to google him.

          Well I’m actually 31 LOL but I feel a little silly with my HP love. All my friends make fun of me. It’s nice to chat with people that feel the same way I do. The movie is at 8pm. But I am getting to the theater at 5:30. Last year, the theater I went to closed down because it was over capacity. Crazy right????

    Nancy,
    I am led to understand that you have a Birthday on Nov. 20th and need to know what kind of cake you would like? Now bear in mind this cake will actually be created in New York by a sweet, faubulous, fashionable woman who probably knows Sylvia Weinstein personally, so please don’t hold back. Give us your fantasy cake and we will Cyber bake it for you!

    • nancy says:

      Carrot and thank you for asking. This family is so fantastic. Love all. Don’t post often but am always here. Everyday. Been here since Lynn sarted. Great group of posters.

      Thanks again and appreciate you’re thinking of me

    • nancy says:

      Oh my goodness. Thank you. What an honor.

  50. Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

    Kmlh,
    I went to the midnight party for the release of the 7th book at a local (and huge) bookstore here. They had transformed their store into Hogwarts and had butterbeer and pumpkin pasties for refreshments. Since you had to wait until 12:01 for the books to be distributed it was a huge party and I made my poor, non Harry loving, nephew take a nap and go with me because I was sure it was mostly for kids and I didn’t want look like some pedophile perv hanging around this kid themed party.
    I should not have worried. There were more teens and adults than little ones. In fact, There were about 5 60 year old women there (in a group) dressed as Hermione, Lavendar, Cho, Katie Bell (quiddich gear included) and Ginny complete with knee socks and short skirts. Hah! I was home by 1 am and read straight through the night.

    • klmh says:

      Now, you live in a fun town and wouldn’t you love to meet those 60 y. olds dressed in costumes! You have a great nephew too, by the by.
      My sister and her husband who are 67 and 71 respectively didn’t know much about HP and I got her started on the audios. She and her husband are having more fun! Last month they went to Universal for the HP village, they have also purchased all the cd audios and I just found out today they bought all the blu-ray movies with additional footage and conversations with the actors, directors, etc. They have lost their minds in a matter of 4 months! They are quite conservative with their money but have just gone off, just as bad as you and I… Thanks for the note and let me know what you think of the movie.

  51. cusi77 says:

    @OneMore_ You owe me one with that comment about you going to the Jewelry Store and leaving me with the rest of Bawbby wishes! Lol. You cracked me up! Good one!

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      Well, I will expect both you and your husband to groom my eyebrows with 2 dimes.

      I’ve never used dimes before. Is this something that Phadrea will do to her baby after she removes the 50 cent piece? Is it a country custom to use coins to improve your physical appearance?

      I have a whole new business plan for my medspa!

      I shall call it the Cusi Method. As in: “Please lie down here madam, for our customized Cusi Method. ALL the Real Housewives are doing it.”

      • cusi77 says:

        Ha! that is a sisters joke or “menace”… “if you don’t… I will pull out your eyebrows with dos veintes”…

  56. cusi77 says:

    re Camille vs. Kyle

    I do believe Kyle could have been interrogating Camille about her trip to Hawaii because Kyle -let’s not forget- has the tendency to be a control freak, she wants to have all figured out and the way she bullies (?) Kim has been painful for me to watch… therefore she is not that innocent when it comes to want to know “everything”, probably this lead to CC (crazy Camille) to project her own feeling of not worth without Kelsey on her side to hear what was not said.

    I as well think that she knew something was going on between her and Kelsey since she has “friends” playing tennis with her and being the balls keepers… She is coquette around men… she is not shy (at all) to dance like a strip dancer in a cage for her girlfriends husbands… did you see Adrienne eyes in Vegas? And Kyle’s barracuda comment! Kyle was pissed for Camille’s behavior in Vegas… she could be more interrogating Camille than having a friendly conversation IMO.

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      I agree. She may not have said the words, but the questions she was asking probably made Camille feel like that’s what she meant. It could have been about the Cheers celebration in Hawaii and why Camille would be going without Kelsey being present. Kyle does have a take charge dominant personality and may have asked one too many questions.

  57. HD says:

    In regards to Sonya…

    “Morgan, who joined the Bravo show during its third season earlier this year, reportedly listed $19.8 million in debt and $13.5 million in assets on her bankruptcy petition.”

    The movie was 7 million right? So she has 12.8 million dollars in other debts?

    While she continues to try to resolve her legal problems, Morgan said she hopes to maintain the value of her assets and continue her career as a television personality, according to The Journal.

    What does maintain the value mean? Does that mean she wants to hold on to her 13.5 million?

  58. MickeyMouth says:

    Here’s one for Taylor.
    Going Oklahoma on Your Ass: #RHOBH http://wp.me/pWaBw-ov

    Except I’m mad at myself for missing the better joke and not making it a donkey.

  59. kmuellfa says:

    I am re watching the fight, and Kyle said to Camille “Don’t be insecure” under the context of all the girls like you.
    When they are in the restaurant lobby, Camille says that Kyle said “Don’t be insecure, you’re so insecure.”

    Camille’s full of BS. She conjures this shiz up in her own mind.

  60. boston02127 says:

    I never knew about cheek implants until someone here posted about it. I’m watching Camille now and I think it looks awful. Does Taylor have implants too?
    Also, sometimes Camile’s eyebrows are thick and sometimes thin.
    OMiB, I bet u noticed that. lol

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Both Taylor and Camille have cheek implants that are a couple of sizes too big! Guess they came with the too big lip package….

    • kmuellfa says:

      You know, before Taylor got those gross injections because her temples were too hollow ( because she’s to effin thin, and as you get older you lose your subcutaneous fat-that’s why all the fillers are all the rage), I had never heard of that procedure.
      And now I noticed that Kim has those hollows at her temples. It’s strange looking, it ages her, and I hate that I notice that, because it looks like Kim is one of the few who hasn’t butchered herself with tons of plastic surgery.

      I think the extra 30 lbs I carry around are keeping me looking young, who knew?

      • ches says:

        There’s an old saying, “When you hit 40 you have to choose between either your face or your ass”.
        A young and full face means your ass is huge.
        A little ass and your face looks like Skeletor.
        Just not fair.

      • babykakes says:

        i heard years ago that Cher had cheek implants. i don’t think Kim has had any plastic surgery or she would look much younger, not so much older than her real age. someone said that
        Kim had a nose job..baloney! she has a hook nose & could benefit from that procedure. Kyle had a nose job before the show started filming & i think she looked much better before.
        for Camille & her employee/friend aid that women have been jealous of Camille for years. jealous of what? i don’t think she’s
        attractive at all but apparently she thinks she’s a ’10’..Kyle was right, Camille really does need psychological help & has for years. the only thing i would be jealous of is her financial wealth!

        • babykakes says:

          did anyone watch WWHL tonight? What Kelly & Mark said re: Camille, Camille & Kelsey, & Camille & Kyle was

  65. boston02127 says:

    Funny how Camille is so angry and insulted about the comment Kim allegedly made to her about being Kelsey’s wife but she jumps right in front of the cameras at Kelsey’s play.

  68. RubyNewbie says:

    I can’t even wait for the new post. I gotta say Caaaaammmmmiiiiiiiilllllllleeeeeeee!!!! Girl, you are exasperating and full on delusional!

    Living in a bubble of hired help flunkies has messed her mind up. She IS insecure. She IS a troublemaker. That’s why other women never like her. Jealousy has nothing to do with it. She really needs to find someone, anyone in her life who will keep it real with her. And she needs to grow thicker skin so she can handle the realness.

    In other news, I’m trying to figure out who will get tired of the bickering first, Adrienne or her hubby? I don’t doubt they love each other, but that back and forth has gotta be exhausting.

    And lastly, if someone out there loves Taylor, please have a delicate discussion with her about those lips. I just can’t with those. They are a major distraction.

    • Shannon says:

      I agree. I’m sick of woman who act like tramps always using the excuse that other woman are always jealous of them. There is no way I would let Camille act toward my husband like she does toward Nick. I would knock her on her ass.

  69. error404 says:

    So…. should the title be changed?

    “Real Housewives who love to complain about their husbands of Beverly Hills” or “Real Castrating Housewives of Beverly Hills” maybe

  70. Dani says:

    I just can’t believe that Kim did not tell Camille that she was there and Kyle did not say what Camille said that she did. Wow, way to stick up for a friend let alone a sister. Also, Taylor is the one that brought up the fact that Camille was insecure. I guess that Taylor left that out when she was telling Camille what the other’s said on the plane.

  71. Imseasquared says:

    LOVED how the editing elves at Bravo kept giving a closeup of Camille’s red pumps. If I remember correctly, on Fashion Police they raked Camille over the coals for her opening night outfit. Specifically the fact that she wore those red “come F’ me heels” really tipped her hand as to what profession she did BEFORE she became Mrs. Kelsey Grammer.

  72. boston02127 says:

    Watching Adrienne ring the buzzer at Lisa’s house made me think of Jill. Jill’s apartment is like a fort compared to their BH homes.

  73. boston02127 says:

    The whole show about the stupid fight! An hour of crap.

    • error404 says:

      not true!

      we saw Adrienne get mad at Paul
      we saw Lisa’s husband carry Lisa’s dog
      we saw Adrienne get mad at Paul again
      we saw Russell try to connect with his daughter and her totally rebuff him
      we saw Mauricio take his shirt off
      we saw Kelsey try to get rid of Camille
      we saw Adrienne totter across the street, most probably thinking how mad she was at Paul

      • housewifeaddict says:

        I saw Russel’s daughter smile for the first time. I think she likes being with her dad – and it was nice to see him try.

        • MichellefromNY says:

          I think I began to like Russell so much more from this episode. Before I thought he was one of those creepy, older guys that you keep your children away from and now I see he’s just socially awkward and not the life of the party.

  74. error404 says:

    Keep digging yourself that hole Camille! LOL I think she’ll reach China soon! Gosh, is there a single person left in america who doesn’t hate her yet?

    • boston02127 says:

      @error404—Imagine Kelsey’s new girlfriend watching Camille on this show.

      • cusi77 says:

        Boston_ She most be c-e-l-e-b-r-a-t-i-n-g! Not as much as Kelsey!

        • housewifeaddict says:

          eh – she’s still was responsible for breaking up a marriage. Kelsey should have dumped Camille and then started dating.

          • BessiB says:

            You must not watch Judge Judy: SHE is not the one married to Camille – Kelsey is. SHE has no loyalty to Camille. “Why do women blame other women when it is the man who broke the commitment? If you are going to key somebody’s car, key HIS.”

    • RubyNewbie says:

      That woman! She is a Jezebel! A woman hating wrecking ball mess!

      She must have a word-a-day calendar and the word that day was pernicious.
      How did Kelsey do 13 years with that? Was she that crazy when they hooked up or did she slowly lose her mind? Yeesh!

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        LOL- I was thinking that too. I had to look up the word and resented her for it because I know she only looked it up herself a few seconds before. Actually, I think the page from that word of the day calendar was hidden in the book she was pretending to read.

  75. Kellita says:

    And there Camille goes again not (sarcasm) being in Kelsey’s shadow: “Kelsey’s at the top of the pecking order.”

    • housewifeaddict says:

      He’s up here and Maurico is down there.

      • RubyNewbie says:

        Can’t wait for the reunion so they can discuss that little gem. You gotta pity someone who thinks like that. I would like to ask her where SHE is in the pecking order–following her own logic–or lack thereof? Where do ex dancers on canceled tv shows rank??

        • Kellita says:

          Good point! Now that she’s soon to be Kelsey’s ex, does that move Camille to the bottom of the pecking order, below the common Beverly Hills realtor?

          • ches says:

            Camille must be channeling Kelly during that scene.

            • Rabble Rouser says:

              Somehow I doubt that Kelsey is going to have a problem using the husband of his ex-wifes nemesis as his realtor. I guess Camille doesn’t have the clout she thinks she does.

              • babykakes says:

                makes one wonder if Kelsey’s new lady was hiding in his dressing room as he was so obviously trying to get her to leave

  76. kmuellfa says:

    Can someone explain to me the stripper platform stilettos that these women wear ALL THE TIME?!?
    Teetering across the street to have tea w/ a neighbor? Ri-dic-u-lous.

    • KellitaM says:

      I’m guessing that’s for the benefit of the cameras. I wonder how they dress when they aren’t going to be filmed? Can we picture Adrienne in sweats?

  77. boston02127 says:

    Each time Camille tells the story about Kyle, she makes it sound worse. She has Jill syndrome.

  78. so it looks like Kelsey got rid off his wife before his real estate agent.
    snicker snicker

  79. HD says:

    Camille needs mental help. She is 100 percent crazy! I think Bravo has punked us. There is always a crazy person.

  80. housewifeaddict says:

    Everytime Camille opens her mouth I dislike her even more. Ugh. Double Ugh. I hope Kelsey is keeping Mauricio as their realtor. That was possibly the most awkward episode ever. And a snooze!

  81. cusi77 says:

    I have a poll question here:

    Camille’s friendship with that young guy is as innocent as Danielle’s and Dany?

    • housewifeaddict says:

      I’m sure he’s there for the camera time – like Max and Kelly – although did you see how she leaned into him near the end, and he didn’t back up and scream like Kelsey would have – so maybe. I lean towards no though – but she wants us to think they are is beyond my comprehension.

    • boston02127 says:

      I think they throw anyone in so she can talk on camera because I doubt she has any friends.

    • scorpiosue1102 says:

      There is hugging a friend and there is hugging a friend……who you want or are sleeping with. The hugging, kissing, being too close in the personal space are flashing neon lights. Sorry, but it’s full on skankiness.

      • quincyil says:

        He looks embarrassed and miserable on screen to me. When she asked about too much cleavage, I saw his wife’s hand to the left. This is a chance to be on TV for a good looking man. I don’t know what he does for a living, but he is putting up with the Dragon Lady for face time on TV.

  82. HD says:

    Kelsy rushed Camille out of that dressing room. I could not believe it. He treated her like an annoying fan that got backstage. How embarassing. I perform A LITTLE and after a performance you want your family around. He damn near kicked her out. Well shoot he did

    • Shannon says:

      I wonder if her not moving to New York to be with him was all Kelsey’s ideal? It sure seems like that marriage was O V E R.

    • cusi77 says:

      That was my thinking!

    • Jinx says:

      I am embarrass for her.

    • Kellita says:

      They are very odd together. It’s clear the marriage was “over” a while ago. I felt a little itty bit sorry for Camille in that moment at the dressing room. She must have been embarrassed in front of the cameras that it was so obvious Kelsey wanted her to go away.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      well considering he was cheating on her – hurrying her out of the dressing room (with cameras in tow) so that he could change isn’t that bad. He probably had all sorts of real things to take care of – not fake feeding of her ego.

    • scorpiosue1102 says:

      Sad thing is that I don’t feel sorry for her.

      • ches says:

        If she didn’t know he was cheating then, she must have had some sort of epiphany in that dressing room. She had to have known it was over before she walked out the door.

  83. Dani says:

    I think Camille would be with Nick in a minutes. I feel sorry for his wife, she has to see that Camille is making a play for him.

    Cusi77 my vote is that her friendship with Nick is not at all innocent.

  84. housewifeaddict says:

    I read somewhere (not on a blog but in some sort of article) that when she arrived at the apartment and announced she was his wife the doorman was like “no you aren’t” and that tipped her off that another woman was spending a whole lot of time being his pretend wife in NY. Not sure if it was this trip, or a later one – but that could explain how uncomfortable everyone was all around. Poor Kelsey in his interview scenes. He sure sounds down.

    • Kellita says:

      He does sound a little ominous. I wonder when they were filmed and where the marriage was by then.

      My glass of wine made me sleepy, so I’m off. Night night.

  85. error404 says:

    and somewhere in an overpriced mansion somewhere, Camille’s paid friends are all agreeing with her that all publicity is good publicity. PR 101!

    • housewifeaddict says:

      I think she’s twittering with her hair dresser right now!

    • JazzNightOut says:

      The little speech Camille gave about how women should support each other sounded like Kelly verbatim. So now we know for sure that Kelly bullied Bethenny because she is jealous of Bethenny. As if that were a secret to anyone but Kelly. I wonder how conscious either woman is.

      • MichellefromNY says:

        Yes you’re right!! and the whole, I’m up here and you’re down there was exactly like camille’s “my husband is at the top of the pecking order”. She IS kelly.

        • housewifeaddict says:

          Am I the only one thinking that Camille is Kelly – just transformed by the plastic surgery? Has anyone actually scene Kelly and Camille in the same room together? Hmmmm.

          • JazzNightOut says:

            Hmmmm, yes. Maybe playing Camille in RHOBH was one of the new opportunities Kelly was tweeting about this summer. Noooooooooo, that would mean Kelly could act. I think they are just similarly insecure and jealous women who used their looks to get an older, rich man to marry them and have now been rejected. Both are really nasty people.

  86. boston02127 says:

    Have to get some styDYING in. Good night everyone. 🙂

  87. MichellefromNY says:

    The more I watch beverly hills, the more I realize how insecure camille really is. And did anyone see how uncomfortable kelsey looked in the dressing room with his wife?? It was sooo uncomfortable to watch. Like I felt uncomfortable just watching them together.

    Plus kelly ripa was tottally right saying that if a person keeps saying someone is jealous of me, it’s a sign of crazy and that person really being the jealous one.

    I think that camille was the one really harping on the issue while kyle was really trying her best to solve it without completely losing her dignity.

    And notice how camille’s “friends” are her makeup artist and hairstylist who she confides in. Sorry camille, but you don’t give your “friend” your purse and wrap so you can pose for the paparazzi. That’s your stylist’s job. Oh right, that’s what she really is.

    And further on my camille rant here, I found her comments about how her husband is superior to kyle’s to be beyond disgusting. Yeah we get that your husband is an A-list actor, but that does not make him better than everyone else. I actually found her comments about the superiority of “her” husband to be revealing of her own jealousy of how awesome a husband mauricio is.

    And anyone notice how Camille uses high vocabulary that often doesn’t fit or make sense in her sentence. I guess that’s her way of making her more “high class”

    K, one more thought before I make you all crazy with this rant. When talking about the paparazzi taking photos, camille used this high pitched fake french accent. As if new york paparazzi are foreign. They all have the classic brooklyn accent if anything. But I guess faking a brooklyn accent is too low class camille?

    K I’m done. Thank ya’ll for listening. Now I better get some rest cuz my fetus is kicking me like crazy! You guys are all awesome 🙂

    I am so over Camille. Zipit Camille. Jelly beans and Al Sharpton. Put your hair up! Lollipops!

    Blogs up for BH at Bravo, except Camille. Kim has one as well.

      Taylor really tries to talk her way out of what happened at the airport on her blog. Did she not watch the episode with the whole “flashback” of her starting the whole insecure thing.

      Also, from Lisa’s blog that she works out that Taylor was the instigator in all of this and confronts her with it.

      • DarkSonnet says:

        Lisa appears to be quite the rarity as far as the HW series go.

        Elegant, intelligent, no visable BS and the confidence to tell other people to basically grow up and cut the crap.

        I am enjoying Lisa at this point. Well, except for little Gizzy who has been destined to never be allowed to walk on his little 4 paws. Half the time he appears to be a stuffed toy. Seriously at times I wondered if they used a stuffed animal as a stand in.

        ;o)

    • klmh says:

      I don’t know. I just cant watch this show. I lost my younger sister 2 years ago and we were closer than twins. She was my better half and we loved and respected each other so much. Still down in the dumps about it. But to see these two sisters fight and be so unsupportive of each other breaks my heart. It will break theirs too when one looses the other. Their guilt will be so painful, or should be. Nothing replaces the love sisters have for each other.
      I knew from the first episode that jealousy and competition is what these sisters are about. God, just breaks me up.
      Love Lisa though and her entire family, including Giggi.

      • Adgirl says:

        Gosh klmh, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I don’t know how you can watch BH at all. (((hugs))).

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        I’m so sorry to hear of your loss.

        It’s funny, well not haha-funny, but odd-funny what makes you think of loved ones you’ve lost and what triggers an attack of grief.

        I’m sorry that watching RHOBH is that trigger for you. It must be very painful for you.

      • klmh says:

        Thank you Adgirl, Sha2000 and OMIB. I appreciate your kind words.

  91. Adgirl says:

    Who watched WWHL? I am concerned that Mark Consuelos is drifting toward Andy Cohen territory. Too much eye rolling.

  92. Lynn did you see the new thing on wordpress? You just copy the url of the tweet and it automatically displays it.

    Cool, huh?

  93. RileyKitty says:

    I am hating Camille more & more with each passing episode. Who says shit like my husband is higher on the food chain than yours, so I am more important (paraphrasing, of course)? Sorry, Camille, just because someone thinks you are an annoying, insignificant bitch doesn’t mean they are jealous of you. These long, lusty hugs with her “friend” Nick are skeeving me out. (He looks familiar to me, was he on a soap or something?)

      • Dani says:

        Now it makes since, Nick is a actor possibly on one of those many pilot shows that Camille writes. So he is another employee friend.

      • ramonacoaster says:

        It’s been nagging at me that I’ve seen him somewhere before. Thanks for finding that info. Camille probably doesn’t have any real friends other than the ones she pays and he’s probably on the payroll. I couldn’t help think that scene with Camille was some bad acting.

    • KellitaM says:

      Oh, Nick’s an actor! What is up with his wife that she blesses his relationship with Camille? Is she just super naive? I wonder if her opinion of their relationship has changed since the show has been airing.

      I am married, and I would never get in one of my guy friend’s faces and kiss him like Camille does. And I wouldn’t tolerate it if any of my female friends did that to my husband.

      • error404 says:

        I swear it’s a sting. Every time Nick is distracting Camille with a shoulder to cry on, the wife is busy somewhere else in the house, stuffing cash into her bag, or copying down bank account pass codes.

        • Amber...Real Wife says:

          The wife is probably the one sending him! She’s his madame and he’s working this crazy women like a part-time job. Another theory, Kelsey sent him to keep her busy and possibly get an adultery claim against her for the divorce. Meanwhile, Camille, head in the clouds, was “working”, skipping around singing “ShClamille Shclamazel Grammert Productions Incorporated…Doing it out way!”

          Thanks IBBB!

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          SNORT!!!

  94. HD says:

    I am so pissed off that Camille KEPT mentioning how Kyle’s husband works as their realtor and how they (read she) was going to let him go because of a fight.

    As quickly as Kelsy rushed her ass out of that dressing room do you REALLY think he sat and talked to her about that fight and letting Ky’e’s husband go? Honey he was thinking about letting you and your craziness go. He will keep the realtor.

    • error404 says:

      well, we never heard Kelsey say those words, and we all now know how Camille hears things off camera.

      • Dani says:

        And for all of Camille’s big words last night she needs to learn how to pronounce realtor……..it is not REAL-A-TOR. It drove me crazy everytime she said the word.

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      The realtor issue was the elephant in the room. Kyle apologized because of her husband’s professional relationship with the Grammers. She was visibly upset because she had apologized but the menace that is Camille kept rehashing the incident forcing Kyle to insult her in front of “witnesses”.

      The issue was money. Kyle knew Camille could find another realtor and her husband would lose those six figure commissions. Instead Kelsy found another lover and probably kept his realtor.

      • quincyil says:

        It bothered me a lot too. Because Kyle uttered the word, “insecur,” her husband should be fired and Camille would love it if everyone else in Hollywood would punish Kyle’s husband too. This is so typical in this kind of woman. I think Camille is so like women that I know here. Where does the venom come from. Kyle wanted to work things out. She tried on several occassions. Camille slammed everyone at the table except Taylor and she she sees Taylor make the statement that she denied on screen, Taylor will be out too. Who will Camille film with next year? She is BH’s Daniell Staub, but I like to affectionately refer to Camille as the Dragon Lady. It shows class and her true nature.

        • Sha2000 says:

          “She is BH’s Daniell Staub”

          That’s what I’ve been saying too! She’s so in love with herself just like D.

  95. vilzvet says:

    Wow, Lisa and Ken have always been a stunning couple! LOL at “I’m not even allowed to go into the fridge.” And the whole Camille and Kyle thing is much ado about nothing.

  96. AZ Girl says:

    While waiting for this week’s episode I watched the rerun of last week. Nick and Camille talking about the fight you could see Nick was so nervous. He was peeling the label of his beer bottle. The look on his face was priceless because Camille was obviously coming on to him and wanting his sympathy. They are filming and he is thinking “my wife is going to see this and how do I get away from crazy”. Personally I think Nick is getting paid by Kelsey to keep his wife company.

    Kim should have had Kyle back in the argument. Camille is just a calculating bitch. If this had happened to me and I was in the same position as Camille it would have been FU and done. Why Camille gives a rats ass about what Kyle thinks just shows she is terribly insecure plain and simple. Camille you need a shrink (and a Big Mac).

    Now did anyone check out Kyle’s earrings? Are those the same emeralds that Angelina Jolie wore to the Oscars 2 years ago? Obviously on loan but what a treat to wear those for a night. “sigh”

    • Dani says:

      I loved those earrings. I couldn’t keep my eyes off of them. I thought the same thing as they look like the same earrings that Angelina Jolie wore to the Oscars.

      • HD says:

        I am trying to hold my peace until the new blog to go off on Kyle’s sister. What sister does that?

        • Sha2000 says:

          Hi HD!

          I agree, I’d be pissed at my sister if she didn’t back me up when it was the truth too.

          • error404 says:

            let’s face it, after much pressure, Kim finally siad in a filmed afterward talking head, that Kyle never said it. But, up until that point, while they were filming she kept saying things like “I think Camille misinterpreted what Kyle said”.

            I’m not excusing what Camille did, I really do think this was all manufactured drama.. a set up and Kyle was an easy target. I think it’s becoming clear that Kyle did say something, at least similar to the accusation, and Camille realized she had the ammo she needed to take Kyle down.

            Kyle is the most popular, but her husband isn’t top dog, and I really think this was all of Camille attempt to show the women that she was suppose to be head cheerleader/ prom queen, not Kyle. So she set out to get Kyle’s husband fired, and to warn off the other women that they need fear and worship at her altar.

            • MichellefromNY says:

              Agreed. Camille was totally trying to make a power play and “win” the sympathy of her new friends and the viewers. Boy did that backfire.

        • error404 says:

          eh, I have a hot head sister too, and I don’t consider saving her ass over and over again part of my job description.

          • Sha2000 says:

            Lol, my sister is a hot head too! She just got a FB page & didn’t activate the wall option…typical, she can comment on everyone but no one can comment on her. That said, she would back me up as I would her IF she heard me & IF she knew what I said to be the truth. I would do the same & so would our two stepsisters, I don’t think its saving ones ass as much as owning up to truth if that were the case as it seemed to be with Kyle & Kim.

            • error404 says:

              Kim reluctance to shout from the roof tops every 5 minutes that Kyle never said that is interesting I think. I’m suspicious that Kyle did actually said something at least close to what she’s accused of. I don’t think any less of her because I don’t think it’s that bad, but especially in the beginning, I looks almost like Kim is really to half whisper “but you did say that Kyle” lol

          • quincyil says:

            I think this was an important issue. Kim should have stated that she was there and she did not hear her sister make that statement. In something like this on camera fight, she should have contributed the truth.

            • Sha2000 says:

              Exactly Quincy.

              Who would sit by & let a sister or friend be be accused of something she did not do?

              • HD says:

                Any sister worth being called a sister is going to AT THE VERY LEAST, state the truth. It would have been soooooooooo simple to say, “Kyle did not say that.” End of story. Let’s eat.

                • Amber...Real Wife says:

                  Yes she could have said “Kyle didn’t say that…she implied it but she didn’t say it”.

              • error404 says:

                Kim is very ready to insist that Camille misunderstood. She’s been saying that from the get go.

                However, Kim is very reluctant to say Kyle never said those words. I don’t think it’s a proven fact that Kyle never said it, or something very close to it.

  97. Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

    I can’t stand Camille she and Nick or atleast she acts like if they were more than friends. The way she looks at him and kisses him. Also she is a totally train wreck like Kelly with her “I’m up here, they down here attitude. What a BITCH!!!

    • Sha2000 says:

      She reminds me of Danielle if she had $$$.

      • error404 says:

        what makes Camille such a great TV villain is that she’s actually a collage of all the worst house wives!

        • Sha2000 says:

          Maybe, I can see a little SaLIEhi in her too. I just can’t stand how she is so giddy & fully of herself; so pleased that she grabbed the brass-$-ring. Even that scene w/her mom she took over, “my mom has cancer-oh my life is so busy with taking care of me I need 4 nannies because Hawaii was exausting”… why even film the mom? Ugg. Phadera & Camille are tied for worst in my book.

        • American Idiot says:

          So true, Error.

  98. kmuellfa says:

    Ya know Camille, your husband, I mean soon-to-be-ex-husband, *cough*, may be a “A-list” celebrity and higher on the pecking order, but I would pick a devoted husband and father like Mauricio (sp?) any day of the week.

    I know, I’m weird.

    • quincyil says:

      I would take my non movie star husband over a Kelsey Grammer who cheats too.

      • Sha2000 says:

        Since when is Kelsey Grammer considered A list anyway? Isn’t the term “A list” reserved for people like Clooney & Bono; people considered “super stars”.

    • error404 says:

      shrug… I must have slept thru the multiple oscars and tony’s Kelsey has. Apparently he’s a combination of Lawrence Oliver and Tom Cruise. A huge movie star to rival George Clooney and Jack Nickolson.

      And here was I thinking he was just a TV actor who’d been in two well written ensemble cast shows. Huh.. I learn something new every day.

      • Sha2000 says:

        We were thinking the same thing 404.

      • kbinldo says:

        I think she mentioned Emmys, of which he does have a few, along with a couple Golden Globes, all for his TV work. He was nominated for a Tony Award, but didn’t win. But no Oscars, though.

        • MichellefromNY says:

          That’s because he’s not a MOVIE actor. You need to be in a movie to get an oscar.

          And he may have been A-list in his prime, but he’s not that big in hollywood anymore. After frasier he kind of disappeared. Kinda like jerry seinfeld.

          • LurkerAlso says:

            He was in a movie–at least one I can think of –played a TV reporter. I can’t think of the name of it.

            I really enjoy him as an actor, but Camille’s over-the-top statements are super-annoying. I’d bet he wasn’t thrilled hearing her carrying on and on like an INSECURE pernicious idiot.

    • twoile says:

      I may B of base in my opinion but(i’ll risk it). To me an A list celeb is Jolie/Pitt/Annistin(sic)/Clooney etc…..funny as Frazier is Kelsey is playing an extension of himself in booth Cheers as well as (F). I certainly enjoyed both but by no means would place him in A list 4 talent. I would say very successful talent/business acumin. (Lousy picker of female partners?)up to now at least Maybe a lousy Dad as well…who knows. C is punishment enough 4 all of his sins, past/present & future ;0) I feel very sorry 4 the children they will b used as pawns by C…& I’m not convinced that Kelsey is willing to go the extra miles required to maintain any relationship w/them.The best estimate of future behavior is past & it doesn’t look like K maintains a relatinship with his other children, but of course I’m not sure of that.

  99. error404 says:

    I have no idea why Lisa and Taylor etc.. are scape goating Kim in all this. Probably to cover their own tracks.

    Anyone who honestly thinks that Kim defending her sister would have stopped crazy Camille and her mission to turn a passing comment into WWIII is living in a lala land of fluffy clouds with the Care Bears. It would have been dismissed in 5 seconds with a “of course you’ll stick up for your sister” and hurricane Camille would have raged on unabated.

    I also love how Kim’s efforts to get her hot headed sister to shut up, dial it back a notch, and not go for Camille jugular even if she was wrong, was all used against her. Um, isn’t trying to get your sister not to rage like a lunatic at her husband’s client’s wife, “having her back”?

    Ok, maybe it wasn’t the right time or place, but I can also see how Kim couldn’t pass up the chance to get in a “see what I mean”. I’m sure this wasn’t the first time Kyle has flown off the handle defending herself in an argument. I still think Camille hand picked Kyle to accuse, because she knew she’d blow like a defective hand grenade. I also think Camille was trying tot throw her weight around by purposefully getting Mauricio fired. It was all a set up of epic Jill Zarin proportions IMO.

    • psol says:

      I agree with the set up, I believe Camille had planned all along to use Maurico as a way to put Kyle in her place or intimidate her with the “pecking order”.

      I must say though, IMO Kim should have spoken up. She was the only other person there for the original conversation and knows exactly what was said. It doesn’t have mattered if it was her sister or not.

      • Sha2000 says:

        Maurico will do okay, there are other clients & I’m sure he’s networks well being in BH & part of the Hilton klan; with that connection who needs the Grammers?

        • quincyil says:

          So true….

          I doubt that people are interested in Camille without Kelsey.

          (I am taking classes in snarking classes from Professor one more in Boston.)

        • MichellefromNY says:

          Exactly. Does Camille truly believe that the Grammars have major influence in hollywood to the extent that they can ruin someone else’s financial life? In hollywood “pecking order”, the grammars aren’t that high quite frankly.

    • kbinldo says:

      I think they’re scapegoating Kim for the same reason I’m not impressed with her from last night: she didn’t stand up for her sister in public. We’ve all been there–we fight like cats & dogs at home, but out in the world, when someone else goes after a family member, we should stand up for them. Since Kim was the only other person who heard the initial convo between Camille & Kyle AND her version appears to track with Kyle’s, it’s inexcusable that she sat by silently while Camille bashed away at Kyle.

  100. error404 says:

    I think Kim Z’s Atlanta blog can be summed up best by a quote from said blog:

    “WHAT AN ASS!”

    • quincyil says:

      I did notice that her “ass” is a lot larger than last year. Can you do lipo on your entire body?

      • Sha2000 says:

        She is so full of herself I actually find her funny. I never read her blog but she makes me laugh out loud when I watch the show.

        • klmh says:

          Isn’t that the truth! She’s the “bomb” in her mind and that’s all that counts. Interesting to see someone like that. Instead of snarking or going behind somone’s back, she just says “to hell with them, movin on”…
          She is her own compass.

  101. HD says:

    Did anyone else notice during the eating scenes how LITTLE the women ate? So much food was left on the table. I guess that is why they are all skinny. They left all the pizza on the table. At least it looked like pizza. While Kyle and Camille were arguing, I would have been eating. LOL!

  102. MichellefromNY says:

    I do not believe that Kelsey really said that now they would have to find a new “real-a-la-torrr”. Notice how she looked away from the camera and nick when she was saying that, a clear sign she was fudging. The conversation probably went more like this:

    camille: “kelsey sweetheart! do you know what that bitch did to me? She verbally assaulted me! she started with me!”

    Kelsey: “mhhmmm”

    Camille: “kelsey you don’t understand! how can we possibly work with her husband when the wife is clearly perni-sh-i-ousss?? I mean she is just absolutely pernissh–i-ouss!!”

    Kelsey: “sure camille whatever you say. I’m tired. Tell the house manager to turn down the bed will ya hun?”

    Camille: “sure darling! thank you for being sooooo understanding”

    Kelsey: “whatever you say dear. Good night”

    And then camille interpreted that conversation as kelsey saying that they are firing mauricio.
