Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of Atlanta – The Fight Continues


Sometimes it just takes a change of scenery or a change of venue or even a change of faces to put an abrupt halt to tension and arguments.
Arriving at the estate of the eccentric Thomas Kramer didn’t change anything, meeting up with Cynthia, Phaedra and Sheree only seemed to make things worse as NeNe insisted on bringing the argument outside of the bus and was determined to fill the three ladies in on the drama that they missed on the bus.
Meeting Mr. Kramer didn’t calm NeNe down, she just became more rude and told the man she couldn’t understand why he was friends with Kim.  NeNe’s original plan of going to stay at a hotel would have improved things a whole lot, the tension could be felt right through the screen and it was all emitting from NeNe Leakes.  I think that the other women are afraid to say anything that could set her off again.
As Kim and Sweetie sat on the porch smoking a cigarette and NeNe held court on the patio filling the ladies in on the drama, I thought it was funny as Kim told Sweetie she wasn’t worried because she knew Kandi would have her back just as Kandi was informing viewers that she didn’t need to have Kim’s back.  Kandi obviously has unresolved issues with Kim as well, she’s not gotten past the money issue for the song Tardy For The Party and I think that at this point Kandi keeps a positive relationship with Kim simply for business reasons.  Kandi has seen the real Kim and she isn’t impressed.
Apparently there was a rule book for this trip that was top secret, NeNe knew the rules and Phaedra seemed to know about them but the memo apparently wasn’t distributed properly.  This girls only weekend turned into a “bring a friend party” but what I didn’t understand was why Sweetie didn’t qualify as a “girl”?  NeNe seemed to be the only one put off by Sweetie’s presence.  Sheree certainly didn’t get the memo because she invited her friend/stylist Lawrence who may or may not be a girl.  Ms. Lawrence as he prefers to be called likes lipstick and high heels but in the world according to Phaedra, this doesn’t qualify him because he still has a penis.
It wasn’t clear where the rest of the bus travelers ended up, they may have been there with the ladies in the crazy house but the cameras avoided filming them.  Don Juan was shown at the house but seemed to have disappeared as quickly as he could soon after arrival, and who could blame him?
Here is where NeNe’s behavior gets even worse, NeNe called a friend, Diana to come and join them, justifying this because Kim had Sweetie and Sheree had Lawrence.  It wasn’t NeNe’s place to invite her friend to someone else’s home where she was one of the guests but something else that NeNe must have forgotten is that she was supposed to be there for Cynthia, her friend.  Apparently Cynthia wasn’t good enough for NeNe so she called a better friend?  That was a real punch in the gut to Cynthia.  Bam!
Good for Diana, apparently she can drop everything and run off to Miami at a moment’s notice, Diana wasn’t there to keep NeNe company, she was there to fight NeNe’s battles for her.  You could see Diana just waiting for her name to be mentioned by Kim so that she could jump down her throat.  Diana and NeNe were both extremely obnoxious at lunch, note to self, don’t ever invite NeNe to anything.  Diana jumped on Kim declaring that she wasn’t into the drama yet her mere presence was meant to create drama and the minute she started yelling at Kim, she increased the drama tenfold.  I wonder if Diana knows that NeNe just used her to annoy Kim.  As Diana was telling Kim off, NeNe sat back in her wine induced haze smiling happily like the devil in Prada.
Amazingly, the ladies all seemed to enjoy Kim’s performance of Tardy For the Party, both Sheree and Phaedra commented that they thought Kim did a great job, Phaedra even noted that she was pleasantly surprised.  I’m sure everyone agrees that Kim still can’t sing but in her assignment of warming up the crowd and just entertaining, I suppose she covered that, I’ll give her a satisfactory.

The only one who didn’t seem to enjoy Kim’s performance was, of course, NeNe who made ugly faces and uglier comments.
Kandi did an excellent job, as always.  She certainly can sing, and entertain the crowd, even NeNe seemed to get into it just a bit.  Afterward the tour group had a little pow-wow, thanks all around for a successful albeit stressful tour.
Next on the Miami agenda is Cynthia’s modeling gig, she seemed a bit nervous and you could see the stress in her eyes, she had dark circles under her eyes most likely caused by the stress of the wedding, finances and modeling after such a long time away from the runway.  I thought Cynthia looked amazing, she’s stunning.  I was surprised at all of the negative comments made by the ladies, Phaedra, Sheree and even her friend NeNe were brutal.  They all implied that Cynthia was fat, NeNe said she had “Junk in her trunk”, Phaedra called her a “pretzel covered in cottage cheese” and Sheree added that Cynthia could never have modeled for She By Sheree as she is “clearly a size 12“.  NeNe also felt the need to remind us that Cynthia is substantially older than most of the models out there.  WOW, these are people who actually like Cynthia?
Later at lunch, Cynthia breaks down as the topic of her wedding comes up, harmless questions about the wedding plans are clearly upsetting her but the final straw is Kandi’s innocent question about their honeymoon.  This put Cynthia over the edge and she broke down crying and excused herself from the table.  Phaedra suggested to NeNe that she go and make sure Cynthia is alright but instead of comforting Cynthia and telling her to try to relax and enjoy her party, NeNe selfishly tries to talk Cynthia into leaving later that night and skipping the party in Cynthia’s honor.  Wow NeNe, is there anything you won’t do to get back at Kim?  Why not looking at what is best for Cynthia rather than using this mini-breakdown to your own benefit.  If anyone needed a fun night with the girls, it was Cynthia and NeNe tried to take that away from her for her own selfish reasons.
I love what Sheree said, “get out from under NeNe’s ass and woman up!”  and I absolutely love that Sheree talked Cynthia into staying and move forward with the party that everyone had planned for her.  Way to go Sheree, you just became much more relevant on the show.  The most fun part of the party had to be Lawrence’s imitations of the other ladies, he is so good at it and it certainly did break the ice.
With the exception of NeNe, all of the ladies seemed to enjoy the evening’s “adult entertainment” NeNe would have preferred to have a pajama party complete with facials and pillow fights.  NeNe’s comment was, “Eww, why strippers?”  Lighten up NeNe.  Kim’s comments were completely unnecessary, Phaedra had apparently arranged the strippers who happen to be her clients.  Everyone deserves love Kim and everyone deserves to have an attorney at their disposal, don’t hate.  Phaedra is growing on me.
Some Tweets from the ladies during and after the show aired:
@NeNeLeakes:  You don’t push a person 2 their limit! I had fuckin had it on this trip! @NeNeLeakes:  Yall some trading asses! Everybody has a limit!

@NeNeLeakes:  I’m good! I love when y’all keep it 100 but i’am who i’am & that won’t change! Love ya tweetie @NeNeLeakes:  I never wanted 2 get on the bus or go 2 Florida wit these hating chicks! Believe that


@IamSheree:  It was a nightmare…..until Lawrence arrived! Light at the end of the tunnel! Just imagine how much arguing was cut out!!!

@IamSheree:  Ignored them and hung out with Lawrence! So glad he came. Soooo negative and hateful


Kim tweeted that her 5,000+ sq ft townhouse is for sale for $500,000 and that she’s moving nearby, perhaps something bigger for the new baby?
A fan asked Kim why she didn’t just kick NeNe out of the house, Kim responded that she show wouldn’t let her.
@KimZolciak:  Its one thing to argue and be mad but to walk in Thomas’s house an embarrass me, no class #leavethatshitatthedoor


Cynthia Bailey had a lot to say during the show:
@CynthiaBailey10  I lied the worst is not over

@CynthiaBailey10  Dang!  I look that bad without makeup!  Give a girl a break!

@CynthiaBailey10  I was really tired and stressed.  It was 5 days before the wedding

@CynthiaBailey10  Fly above all the haters?  I would need a rocket ship to do that on ROHA

@CynthiaBailey10  Hater time!!!

@CynthiaBailey10  I promise this is the last time I cry this season!  I cried more on RHOA more than I have my whole life.

@CynthiaBailey10  A hater is on the way!  You’ll know it when she goes in.

@CynthiaBailey10  Pretzel dipped in cottage cheese?  Kick rocks Hunni

@CynthiaBailey10  Maybe Phaedra should have walked the show.  What ya’ll think?

@CynthiaBailey10  Don’t believe these chicks came to Miami for me, they came for themselves.

@CynthiaBailey10  Smile in my face & talk about me in interviews


I found Cynthia’s last tweet here particularly funny, had she not seen a Housewives show before?  I think that Cynthia is referring to Phaedra in most of these tweets when she talks about a hater but honestly its tough to be sure since they all bashed her behind her back, including NeNe.
I admit Phaedra lost a few points again criticizing Cynthia, it was unnecessary snark and wasn’t funny so it was just hurtful and mean.
Next week is the finale of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and features the season-end bash, Cynthia’s wedding.  You can catch the first glimpse of her wedding gown in a preview clip posted on BravoTV.com here:

http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-atlanta/season-3/videos/did-cynthia-get-cold-feet

Personally, I wasn’t impressed with the color of the dress although the grey did seem to reflect Cynthia’s mood.  A white gown would have looked amazing on Cynthia.

Cynthia tells us that her mom stepped up and forked over $3,000 to pay for the liquor at the wedding so it will go on as planned.  In more previews we see Cynthia waking up on her wedding day and she does not look like a happy bride on her wedding day, everyone around her can see that she’s not right and even suggesting that she call the whole thing off.  If ever a wedding should not happen, it seems as though its this one.   It feels like Cynthia is only going through with it because it’s all been paid for, she wants a big fancy wedding and maybe even because Bravo cameras were rolling, did she get married for the viewers?  Was she contractually obligated to Bravo to go through with this wedding?

In last week’s blog, Cynthia wrote:
“Can I get a freakout moment?  What am I supposed to say?  Yeah?  I’ll just text the 200 people who took time off of work, bought their airline tickets and hotel rooms, and let them know the wedding’s off”

This really does validate the notion that Cynthia really felt trapped, it was like she had no choice but to go through with this wedding.  Cynthia is a people pleaser, she didn’t want to inconvenience anyone and I’m sure she didn’t want to hurt Peter but she convinced herself to go through with this wedding for all the wrong reasons.
What I’d like to know is how the marriage is going now?  Cynthia never mentions Peter in her tweets and we’ve heard nothing from Atlanta on how the couple are doing at this point.  Hopefully things have improved and they’re doing alright financially and emotionally.  Cynthia deserves to be happy.
Previews also show more conflict between Kandi and Kim about royalties for the song, “The Ring Didn’t Mean A Thing”.  Kim still doesn’t get it, Kandi wrote it, produced it, recorded it and Kim was nothing but a pain in the ass throughout the process yet still believes that she should get more of the money than Kandi.  This could be why Kim never actually released the song but went with a song called, “Google Me” which was way worse than The Ring song.
Last night on Watch What Happens Live, RuPaul joined Andy in the clubhouse along with Ms. Lawrence, Sheree’s friend and hair stylist on the Atlanta Housewives.  In a surprise appearance, Sheree stopped by to support her friend as he sang his song live on the show.
Andy acted surprised by Sheree showing up but don’t kid yourself, there isn’t anything that goes on that Andy doesn’t know about in advance.
Tonight’s poll question, was NeNe out of line?  Was there any question as to how the responses would turn out?  Andy claims to have had 50,000 votes and 84% agreed with RuPaul and Ms. Lawrence that NeNe was, in fact, completely out of line.  RuPaul talked about NeNe’s saboteur but that seemed pre-arranged and was his way of gently saying NeNe was a horrible houseguest.
RuPaul and Ms. Lawrence also weighed in on the Kim / Sweetie relationship and I think they both explained it all pretty well.  Sweetie is a big girl and if she was offended by Kim’s behavior, she wouldn’t tolerate it.  The two ladies are more than employer/employee, they’re friends and as such they have created their own language and their own way of interacting with one another.
Kim and Sweetie don’t have your typical boss/employee relationship, just as Kim may say some things that could be considered inappropriate, so could some things that Sweetie says to her boss.  It is clear that Sweetie is much more to Kim and her children than just an employee. Kim’s girls are attached to Sweetie as more of an aunt or big sister than just someone who just works for their mom.
All of that said, Kim’s constant screaming Sweeeeetieeee is annoying as hell and Kim should get a whack every time she does it, Kim is still a pain in the ass, dumb as a box of rocks and is in urgent need of a lobotomy.  I think the fact that Kim doesn’t edit herself confirms that she doesn’t see someone’s skin color, she’s a moron to everyone equally.
The three things that Andy was obsessed with this week all included the Atlanta Housewives:
1.  The ladies were all in Miami for two reasons and one of those reasons was supposed to be in support of Cynthia, her modeling gig and her ladies pre-wedding weekend party.  Andy agreed that there wasn’t a whole lot of real support there given all the nasty comments that were made by the ladies.
2. Andy, simply wanting to show a clip of the male strippers again, did just that, showed the male strippers.
3. Finally, Andy revealed that he’s had some inconsiderate houseguests over the years, even one who stole his pills?  (he also mentioned Vicodin on his twitter page yesterday, just sayin’)  But Andy agreed that there was no worse houseguest than NeNe Leakes on tonight’s episode.
Both RuPaul and Ms. Lawrence claimed to love Kim’s wigs, I just don’t get it.  Maybe it’s because I know they are wigs but they always look so fake and stiff to me, and she’s constantly pushing the hair out of her eyes bringing attention to the unnatural look and feel of her hair.
Two out of three of Andy’s three wishes tonight included Oprah Winfrey.  First he raved about Oprah’s Australia trip and then noted that he was anxious to hear Oprah’s family secret that was to be revealed on this morning’s Oprah show.
I can reveal that her secret is a half-sister named Patricia that Oprah never knew existed and who was given up for adoption by Oprah’s mother.
Andy’s final wish was an introduction to Ms. Lawrence singing Kandi’s song and he was obviously lip-syncing but I like the song, I could have lived without seeing that outfit he was wearing, but he certainly isn’t afraid to express himself.  I love that Sheree was so supportive.
Next week on Watch What Happens Live, Kim Zolciak with her boy toy…er baby daddy…er boyfriend Kroy will appear.  A pregnant Kim will apparently get the final word on the argument between her and NeNe.  It seems that whoever appears on Andy’s show after the finale’s are allowed to leave viewers with their side of things and NeNe is already getting put through the ringer, hopefully Kim will show some class and let it go.  Who am I kidding?
Until Next Time…

    I feel really bad for Cynthia, at the time this was filmed she thought they were her friends/castmates that were going to be supportive of her, but watching it know she must be pissed as hell they way they ridicule her. If she’s got a friend in the group its Sheree or Kandi, but Sheree is the only one who seems to be the only one not intimidated in the least by Nene, I think that may be her only good quality to date. Kandi just seems to limit her interactions with Nene to as few as possible.

    • ms molly says:

      Actually, in a past episode, Sheree said that Cynthia was clinging to NeNe like a tick and it was hard to “scratch that b**ch off. And on last night’s episode, Sheree called Cynthia an “ungrateful b**ch, because she said that they all flew in for Cynthia’s bachlorette/girl get together.

      I don’t think Cynthia will ever have a friend there.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        Nene is her friend
        she knew everything that was going on and NEVER gossiped it to any of the other “ladies”
        now you know all the others would have been talking shit about her and peter till the cows came home
        Thats You Wig

        • nathania says:

          to her credit, NeNe at least called Cynthia ‘bootylicious’ to her face. Compared to what the other women did, that was admirable I thought. I think Cynthia has a great body…I have always cringed at the gangly skeletal models that usually walk down the runways so seeing a woman who was tall, poised and actually has a female shape is a nice change.

          I do think Cynthia is a tad naive to expect better from anyone but Kandi, who seems to be not as spiteful.

          It was so strange that Sheree called Cythia a ‘size 12’ when clearly Cynthia is much smaller than Sheree. Very, very strange comments and I’m sure hurtful to Cynthia who looked like a goddess on the runway.

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            and bootylicious is indeed a compliment
            who knows maybe the others except for Pha (whatever that cows name is)
            meant them to be complimets as well
            pretzel dipped in cottage cheese inded that heffer wish she had Cynthias body and face
            and will someone teach that bitch how to wear eye make up already

  2. Cusi77 says:

    Thanks Lynn For this Blog!

    Sorry, I brought this from the previous blog:

    OT_ Remember I share with you that I was invited to loan some jewelry pieces for Mrs. Katleen Sanadoval (Nevada’s First Lady) Well… She will not wearing any of the 3 designer jewelry pieces… However… She wants to BUY one of my bracelets for another occasion! I have never sold anything! I do not even know how to price it!

    @Error_ You did see the bracelet… It took “nothing” to design it BUT a lot of time to make it! I have NO IDEA how much is worth!

    Ideas, are welcome!

    • error404 says:

      they are beautiful , you should be proud.

      just go online and see how much people are selling their stuff for. It’s a start.

      • HD says:

        Congrats!

        If I can make one suggestion…this is just me…charge what you are worth BUT sometimes you gotta bend a little bit meaning I think the word of mouth from this woman and just her wearing it and referring friends back to you and whatnot will really help you out and you will have even more people wanting things. So charge what you are worth (of course) and then maybe scale it back just a tad. I hope that sounds okay. For instance, I give a lot of books away if the person I am giving them to will eventually become a long term supporter or tell others, you know. Don’t give it away though. LOL!

        When can we all see your jewelry? I’m jelly of Error 404. Kidding!

        • Cusi77 says:

          @HD_ I do not know how to do it… I should ask Lynn for help so everyone can see them.

          You know what I’ve decided? I will make this a gift from my heart! I was told today that I was chosen because she wanted to wear the work of an “smiling and peaceful person! Wow! That blew me away! That tells me what kind of person is going to wear my work!

    • kmuellfa says:

      Cusi, you should check out etsy.com (for price points and even to sell).

    • buffywood says:

      That is so exciting! I hope you are very proud of yourself.

    • Mookies1mom says:

      I was always told to consider the price of the materials to make the piece and don’t forget to pay yourself. Don’t forget to include the time it took to design the piece either. But also take into consideration what other people charge for similar items. Hope that helps.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      Wow- that sounds awesome.

    • kbinldo says:

      Wow! Congrats on the great sale! 🙂 May there be many many more!

  3. error404 says:

    There was not a housewife at that bachlorette party than behaved properly. Poor Cynthia, it was suppose to be all about her. Noticeably absent were her sister/bff/assistant, her mother, and any girlfriends she might have. Where would they have put them, since all beds were being taken up by Kim’s assistant, Kim’s wig master, Sheree’s hairdresser, Kandi’s tour manager, and Nene’s friend. Sheree even called the visibly upset bride to be an “ungrateful bitch” because the fabulous Sheree had demeaned herself to come down to earth and cavort with mere mortals, and why wasn’t she the center of all attention. At least Phaedra’s strippers, sorry I meant clients, wait it’s both, anyway, at least they didn’t stay the night. Or did they? Well, they probably bunked with Phae anyway, so I guess it’s ok.

    To top it off, the poor thing had to do a runway show for the first time in years because her idiot groom didn’t tell her he was broke until the last minute, and girl needed to pay some bills. I wonder if she asked for cash upfront before she walked.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      she agreed to do the show BEFORE she found out about Peter and the club closing

      • error404 says:

        he was having trouble from the get go, and she “invested” that $25k before she booked the runway show.

        she moved to Atlanta just to be with him. I doubt it did her career anything but harm. Now she’s doing shows that aren’t even what she wants, because they’re close.

  4. MickeyMouth says:

    Nice blog Lynn.

    I’m bored with the recycled storylines: Ramona, Vicki and Nene have all uttered the phrase “This was supposed to be a girls night” and all have manufactured silly drama over it. It’s contrived like so many things are about last nights episode.

    Both Kim and Nene tweeted things that alluded to the fact that they were “forced” to go on this trip. Bravo forced Kelly and now Kim and Nene, really? Did they also force Nene to behave like an ass?

    • error404 says:

      we’re all “forced” to do things for our jobs. It’s called work.

      Had this just been a camera aimed at 6 friends, Nene would have gotten off the bus and headed straight to a hotel never to be seen again for the rest of the trip. Had she stayed, Kim in real life would have made sure she was always in a different room than Nene. I have no doubt that the producers “strongly urged” Nene to stay in the house, or that they “strongly urged” Kim to sit across from her at a table and have supper.

      No, not forced, but who wants to jepardize their job in this economy.

      • error404 says:

        oh, and what a coincidence that Sweetie just happened to drag her suitcase all the way out back to where all of the ladies just happened to be together. *rolleyes*

        • Anne says:

          If your employment will be taken away, if you must sit next or near someone that tried to strangle you that is the very definition of being forced. The disclaimers within the Bravo contracts have never been litigated at this time, but likely if Kim were to lose her job if she said NeNe cannot stay at the house she has a claim against NBC or should we say Comcast. Comcast will in turn say she waived that right, but you never waive your right if you feel like your are in imminent danger of bodily harm. An attorney could successful make the case that these women were forced or should we use a lighter term of coerced for fear of losing their job to be in the same house.

          NBC has lost in the past on other reality shows just for that claim and so has all the other major networks, so if someone says their were coerced I don’t discard it.

    • If You Had It Like This says:

      I know. Nene is trying to play the “I had to go but didn’t want to” card a la Kelly.
      She keeps tweeting about she’d had enough and she’d been pushed to her limit by Kim but it seemed like they were fine before she arrived. I think Nene just cannot handle anything to do with Kim singing, and Tardy for the Party and she showed up on that bus irrationally pissed off because of that. She’s also got a classic case of I can dish it out but can’t take it syndrome. That’s such a high school term but they all act like they’re in high school so….

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        I am more inclined to think that jealousy got the best of NeNe – not Kim.

        • Debbie says:

          I agree. It seems like if it’s not about Nene then Nene wants nothing to do with it. I felt bad when Nene tells Cynthia that she is inviting Diane because Diane is her true friend, will have her back and is fun. I think it was kind of a slap in Cythia’s face. This weekend was supposed to be about Cynthia but Nene makes everything about her.

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            and yet anytime anyone talks to WIG she makes the conversation all about herself
            everyone on the show has mentioned this

    • quincyil says:

      I would never invite an extra guest to someone’s party, but I have had people bring extra guests. You never know what is going through their minds when they do that.

      Sheree has really changed. Do you remember the party that she threw when Nene was not allowed in? Sheree has financial issues as do many of the housewives, but she seems more reasonable than she was in the past.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        I wonder if someone else was hosting the weekend if NeNe would have brought her puppet to the party.

        • quincyil says:

          I think that Nene does what Nene wants to do.

          Nene demeans others. I no longer think that she is just trying to be funny. So many of these women have displaced anger issues. They are angry at their own financial crisis so they take that out on their husbands who have no more control of the ship of economic state than big bird.

          When times are rough, you can see the really good friendships and marriages in action. You help your best friends when they need help and your husband should be your best friend. You do what you have to do to make his life easier and the reward is a man who feels you have his back. Nene wants Gregg to tell her the truth. Cynthia wants Peter to tell her the truth. When the men try to be honest, the women freak out. That is the time a man need a gentle hand rubbing his back.

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            and yet it was Wig who said the most disgusting things about Nene & Diane for the camera
            Calling Diane The Hulk repeatedly Calling NeNe ugly
            does Wig not own a REAL mirror
            does she not see what most of america sees
            im guessing considerings she makes statements all the time that she is beautiful oh yes Kim and you DANCE Better then you sing too LOL
            its so ironic that she talks about others NOT having class

          • JKW says:

            Lynn,… The husbands don’t tell the truth until AFTER the fact. Telling them they are broke, sold their business or don’t have enough money for a wedding in a wk…would freak me out too. Yes, I would want to know the truth but from the start. Maybe they could actually help them out. I guess none of the husbands thought of that. If I found out after the fact that we were broke…I would be pissed off big time. These husbands have the attitude that they can do what they want and the wife shouldn’t worry their pretty little heads. I would rub their backs …with shoes with cleats on them !

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          everyone else asked others to come that werent invited it was only after finding that all out the Nene invited Diana

    • Powell says:

      I get so tired of these housewifes making the excuse that “Bravo made me do it”. This is suppose to be reality, real. If they didn’t want to go, stay at the house, interact with someone Bravo can’t make them. Even last season on NY Kelly claimed it and Andy said it wasn’t true. The only reason they do things they claim Bravo made them do is to have more or equal TV time than the other ladies. As we saw on NJ with Dina she left mid-season because of Danielle. I’m sure Bravo tried everything to get her to stay, but she didn’t. She used her brain and said she wasn’t putting up with Danielle anymore.

      • nathania says:

        Dina may have been fired because she violated her contract by signing consent for her child to appear on the show when her ex-husband had in fact not given permission for the child. I don’t think Dina left because of Danielle. I don’t think even an act of god would have pried Dina off that show voluntarily. She got herself in an embarassing situation also with the gag order about lies she was spreading about Danielle trying to make her lose custody, apparently she was hit with a cease and desist. It’s probably a stipulation of the contract that if there is fraud it is automatic termination because it voids the contract.

        • VincenzoNewYork says:

          o0o I really like your interpretation. I never liked Dina and I was happy that she was fired from the show or quit the show. I wish we had more facts about the incidents that were never discussed. There was so much ambiguity on that show!

        • Powell says:

          I know Dina had problems with her ex where her daughter was concerned, but if she was fired for that I am surprised Andy wouldn’t have said something about it.

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            Dina was never fired where on earth do these stupid rumours come from
            Andy was doing everything in his power to hold on to her
            had she been fired why would he ask her to be on his nye special
            as well as the other post leaving the show eppys she has done with him
            some of you people are outta your minds

          • Anne says:

            No Andy would not have. On advice of counsel both internal and external NBC would never divulge the term of any settlement agreement on or about someone who is terminated. That is corporate policy. If he did he would open himself up to termination and NBC to liability. That is the only conclusion.

    Sorry about the paragraph breaks, apparently WordPress is going through more growing pains…I’ve tried to fix it to no avail. It was working fine for a few weeks and now has gone to hell again.

    I apologize, hopefully you can still read it ok.

  6. buffywood says:

    Wow, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I never liked Nene and I never will. I knew her fake “nice act” couldn’t last as her true colors where just dying to come out. While I am not a big fan of Kim either, she at least tried to speak to Nene about simply being respectful in that man’s home, and was trying to keep the peace by sending Sweetie and what’s his name out of the house. I would have simply asked Nene to leave as she was being a total disrespectful bitch. I couldn’t even watch anymore and had to turn if off during that lunch scene when Nene friend came in with guns slinging. Who the hell does that? They both would have been show the door. To me she is like Teresa… she lacks personal control, responsibility for her actions, and is an overall joke of a human being. Both are trunk worthy and if I never saw either one again I would be better for it.

    Quick comment on Sharee, I am really impressed with her body. She is one strong woman and a body like hers can only be achieved by some serious hard work.

    I disagree with your comment about Kim showing some class and letting it go. I think Nene deserves to go through the ringer and her continued bad behavior (i.e. tweets above) do not merit “letting this go”. I have not seen any apology for her behavior, no sincere regret in Nene (is she even capable), and until that happens, and considering I don’t see pigs flying in the near future; I don’t think anyone should let this go. Nene is the one that just simply needs to go. I beleive many of the women in the cast are afraid of Nene and hence why they don’t speak up. There was previous reference by Kim that she has needed to be physically restrained while shooting more than once. It will be interesting to see if this rumor is address at the reunion.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      NeNe should go from the show. But I was equally annoyed that the other women let her continue on with her bad behavior. Kim expected to get off the bus and celebrate Cynthia and have a fabulous weekend – so why couldn’t NeNe? All NeNe’s advice to Cynthia started with ‘If it was me’ and it wasn’t about her! NeNe is an ugly, jealous, name calling, Kim baiting bully – I will not clap for her, excuse her behavior or pretend to believe her rationale. And she owes Sweetie one hugh apology for demeaning her with the remarks that no woman should make!

      • buffywood says:

        YES! She uses her size and past violent behavior to intimidate the other cast members. I questioned the choaking claims by Kim before I read the police report posted by Waxdiva and it said 2 witnesses described it the same way Kim did. For whatever reason she is an angry woman and you couldn’t pay me enough money to be around her.

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          considering they were the onl;y 2 people alone in that house how could there be a witness to anything

          • Rabble Rouser says:

            I think she was referring to the assault incident that took place last year. Witnesses back up Kim’s account of what went down- that NeNe waved her finger right up in Kim’s face (and we have seen her do that- she did it to Gregg). Kim knocked her hand away…and the next thing you knew…they were around her neck.

            Just because Kim is a gold digger and a wig wearing tramp, it doesn’t mean NeNe isn’t a thug.

            NeNe is a very, very angry woman. I think it’s only going to get uglier because so many people were offended by her behavior- and she can’t take the blow back from it.

            She’s only going to get more angry and defensive.

            • ms molly says:

              IMPO NeNe’s arrogant it’s all about me attitude is the primary reason for her marital breakdown too!! As soon as NeNe was recognized by some so called fan and received her first paycheck from RHOA, I’m willing to bet that she emasculated Greg (especially with the real estate meltdown) to the point that he couldn’t do anything but shut down. But as my granny used to say “what goes around comes around” We shouldn’t have to wait to long to see.

              • DJ Loops Fruit says:

                seriously it was his cheating and getting caught be NeNe that ended that marriage

                • Rabble Rouser says:

                  His cheating? There has never been any evidence to suggest that-only NeNe’s suspicions. And after last night, I am all the more convinced that she only put that out there to deflect more negitive attention from herself and redirected it other people.

                  There were very public and very specific allegations made against NeNe at the reunion.

                  Honestly, if Gregg was cheating, I am sure some trick would have sold her story by now.

              • Rabble Rouser says:

                I think Celebrity Apprentice will either be the nail in her coffin or the opportunity to turn it around.

                I’m almost tempted to watch, but I am having a hard time recovering from disgust after Anne Duke who raised the most money- lost to Joan River’s who was working for the charity Trumps sister in law sits on the board for. BS

            • DJ Loops Fruit says:

              i still say if there had been witnesses they would have put thier names in the report

    • LavaLady (formerly known as American Idiot) says:

      Sorry I can’t comment on Atlanta yet. I am going to watch the rerun tonight. Too much football yesterday. Just wanted to let you know, Buffy, that I posted on the “losers” blog. Happy to see all the postings there.

      • buffywood says:

        I replied. Football was exciting yesterday! A new blog should be out later today. I am excited too that people are posting there. It is really helping me stay on track.

    • Debbie says:

      Didn’t someone post ( a few blogs ago)a link or the actual document of the police report that even had 2 eyewitnesses to Nene choking Kim?

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          they dont name teh witnesses in the report which says to me
          its fake

          • Rabble Rouser says:

            It’s a police report isn’t- why would the officer lie about witnesses?

            • Rabble Rouser says:

              *It’s a police report isn’t it?
              ( I didn’t look at it that closely but I assume that’s what it was)

            • DJ Loops Fruit says:

              how do you know its not a FAKE
              when they report a crime and they claim witnesses were there that saw the incident they put thier names in the report
              its obviously a fake

              • Rabble Rouser says:

                It read to me like the witnesses were at the scene when the report was taken. I’m willing to bet the witnesses were part of the production team and it went down before they were set up.

                It would also explain why the matter was dropped.

                I think someone who would wave their finger inches away from someones face wouldn’t respect psychical boundaries enough to control themselves.

                I guess we will see if her and Star Jones do actually have a physical fight what she is capable of.

                • buffywood says:

                  the reports I’ve seen say that the two were on their way to filming when the incident occured. That lead to speculation that the two witnesses were part of the production team.

              • LurkerAlso says:

                Is DJ Loops Fruit AKA Nene???

          • buffywood says:

            Police report is legit and it was first released my Entertainment Tonight. While not the Wall Street Journal, it would definately do the research before releasing it.

            Kim claims NeNe grabbed her neck and “tried to choke her out” at the end of an argument on April 15, according to an incident report obtained by Entertainment Tonight. Two witnesses, who apparently tried to break up the fight, corroborated Kim’s story.

            No reason was given for the altercation, and NeNe had left the area by the time the cops arrived. NeNe has not been arrested or charged with any crime, but a rep for Kim insists the incident is still under investigation.

            “Violence is a very serious issue, and we are not going to take this incident lightly,” the rep said. “Mrs. Leakes needs obvious therapy for her apparent anger management issues.”

            • DJ Loops Fruit says:

              entertainment tonight often report stories that arent true and they never seem to take anything back
              no police report that is legit would say their witnesses and then NOT name them
              what would be the point of that
              how could it be held up in a court of law
              dont believe everything you hear or read

              • buffywood says:

                You are incorrect on this one. If the witnesses where not spoken to in person and the officer couldn’t verify identify with id it is VERY common for their names not to be included. I asked a cop friend. Not to mention Nene would have sued so fast had it not been true. She is not a nice person.

                • kotagirl29 says:

                  Not too mention it is a REPORT of an incident. The report itself would not have to stand up in court. Witness’, their statements, and any other evidence found during the investigation is what needs to “hold up” in court, not the incident report.

              • buffywood says:

                Oh and becuase the witnesses were told to go to the judge personally for a sworn statement.

    • Zoey says:

      I agree! I don’t want Kim to ‘let it go’. If NeNe gets put in her place, we’ll all feel better! I need some closure, lol. NeNe seems to get the last word on everything, she never owns up to her bad behavior, can dish it out but can’t take it. I don’t want to see Kim stoop to her level, but I’d love to see a few subtle (or not so) put downs. I’d drink to that!

      • Golden Girl says:

        Ditto to all above responses!

      • Debbie says:

        Me three! Ditto

      • nathania says:

        If there really was an assault in the past Kim is foolish to have continued being friends with NeNe. And here she is, back at square one. Kim seems to be too willing to just move on to the next thing and sometimes you need to be able to hold a grudge, to protect yourself. I think Bravo put NeNe on the bus to give her more air time and economize, because four people in a car going down to Miami would not have left room for the camera-man. Kim being whatever she is, she doesn’t seem to hold onto arguments, even on this episode it was like when it was over it was over, which when you are dealing with someone shady is not a smart way to be.

        Plus I don’t think that the kind of pain NeNe is in, or was still in on that episode, is always easily contained. Bravo should have given her a plane ticket, had they been motivated by anything but ratings. Plus they probably asked her for a “NeNe moment”…I remember years ago there was this amazon on some of the competition reality shows and at the very end of one of them one of the producers told her, Toni, that ‘it would be a shame if the show ends without at least one “toni moment” which meant where she got out of control and screamed raged and cursed at the other contestants. They actually put her up to it. It wouldn’t surprise me if the producers nudge NeNe in that direction as well.

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          so far your point are the only ones i have read here that make some kind of sense
          also had there been a real incident Goldigger WIG would have cashed in on it for sure

          im sure they did have a fight
          im sure wig hit Nene first
          otherwise wig would go for the gold
          and i still dont get why anyones shocked by any of this
          remember Sheree yanking wig by the well wig
          and Nene and Wig break up to make up
          only this time Nene says she has had enough
          time will tell

  7. error404 says:

    “RuPaul talked about NeNe’s saboteur but that seemed pre-arranged and was his way of gently saying NeNe was a horrible houseguest.”

    I disagree. Ru talks a lot of dime store psychology on his show and I think self-help is a big interest of his. I think he was spot on…Nene is a self-sabatur. She has a likable side and has the potential to be popular, yet she can’t seem to get thru an entire season without botching the whole deal a with counter productive bad behavior. Had she quit half way thru this season, she’s exit with her dignity in tact. Now she’s faced with the job of spin control over a hugh backlash. Somewhere Kim is sipping her morning chardoney and laughing that her evil plot to expose Nene worked.

    Nene’s overly-emotional behavior can’t be doing her marriage, or her relationship with her sons much good. She could be happy, yet she’s her own worst enemy. Ru’s a smarite.

    • Kukulet says:

      I agree with you completely. I really do think NeNe would benefit from anger management therapy, because she gets in her own way by letting her temper run unchecked.

      • IMJ says:

        I also agree. Part of me cant really believe that NeNe is up in arms over “Tardy for the Party”, that American classic (lol). You still cant get over your anger of not being included in the song after a year. NeNe has/had the potential of being really big on housewives, if she got her act together. Most of the other housewives parlay that exposure into hawking products and goods. But she cant stop being angry long enough to fuel that energy into something positive. If she wanted to be successful or have a song, she could. Instead she chooses to pick fights with Kim.

        • Debbie says:

          I agree, unless she somehow does an immediate turn around (or it may be too late now) she is gonna be obscure and no one will want to be anywhere close to that toxic mess. She could have used all that energy and made a real brand of herself with something but I think that ship has sailed.

      • nathania says:

        The problem with her is the same problem with Jill Zarin, that in her little corner of the universe, it has always worked and gotten her what she wanted. I’m sure these women start this in high school and if fortunate continue to surround themselves with sycophants in mutual use relationships. It’s only when their tactics don’t go over well in the larger arenas do they start to question what went wrong. I don’t think either one of them will change though.

        • Brigid A. says:

          Except Jill claims she wasn’t popular in school. Kind of sheds light on her inflated ego after she perceived herself to be so beloved by RHONY fans in the first season and refuses to believe those days are over.

    • Zoey says:

      I agree, and I loved hearing what RuPaul had to say. In reading a few of NeNe’s tweets, it seems she didn’t get what he was saying. She thought he meant by a saboteur he was referring to someone else, the ‘hater’s’.

  8. VincenzoNewYork says:

    Hi everyone! The summary is better then the show!!
    I was never the biggest fan of RHOA, but after some marathon after New Years I had decided to continue watching because it was actually interesting.
    In the past seasons, NeNe was my favorite. I really liked her, however after her behavior these past couple of episodes I’ve decided that I really cannot tolerate her attitude and comments. She looks demonic at times and I can also see that maybe she has been drinking more often. I can see the resentment and anger in her face during those side interviews and she really scares me. I hope she learns how to release her anger in harmless ways and finds other outlets to express it. I hope she never has her own talk show because I think that her popularity has dwindled and quite frankly it has diminished on my levels.
    Kim Z’s other Big Poppa seemed to be perverse. He was licking his lips and there were too many innuendos exchanged between them. Her effervescent personality clearly attracts wealthy, and eccentric men. I liked how Phaedra described his decor and taste, and eccentric was a good word to describe it. I really do like Phaedra even though most seem to despise her. She looks beautiful without her make-up.

    I felt sorry for Cynthia. I hope she finds joy in her marriage with Peter. I would have left him after the restaurant closed down and not returing my $25,000! Though, I wonder if Cynthia has or has had an eating disorder. Certain comments such as; “throwing up my food,” or “I can’t eat today,” has raised some concerns for me. I know that in the modeling industry, a model must remain complaisent, and this achieved by remaining slender. I do think that she has a chic appearance and she is quite elegant in her demeanor, which only adds to her beauty. I really like her and I wish her a successful career in modeling. I also thought that she had a beautiful body and her booty does add more to her, characterizing her to be more vivacious. The other ladies with their acrimonious comments need to look at themselves in the mirror.
    I love Sheree’s accent/diction and her facial expressions! She’s so cute. I like how she is opinionated and I would rather see her have her own talk show than Ms. NeNe.
    Kandi- sweet lady, but not enough to comment. She does have a fantastic voice but her genre of music does not interest me.
    Ciao ciao!

    • If You Had It Like This says:

      I love the way Sheree’ talks too! She’s like the William Shatner of the Housewives.

      • vilzvet says:

        I really like Kandi’s speaking voice…it is so musical. And usually people who have nice speaking voices can sing…do you ever notice that on American Idol? I can usually guess if they’re going to sing well.

        • VincenzoNewYork says:

          @vilzvet: after you mentioned it, Kandi does have a good speaking voice. Fantastic voice and she is talented. I never heard of her until her appearance on the show. Now Kim Z does not have a good speaking voice, and I think that her singing voice is okay, however, I think that she needs to develop her talent. I also have to comment that her accent does have some southern influence. I wonder how long has she been in Atlanta, because I thought she was from connecticut or something.

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            how do you develop something you dont have
            Wigs only real talent is being a gold digging ho

            • VincenzoNewYork says:

              I think she’s an okay singer. All she has to do is practice and take some vocal lessons and possibly quit smoking, and all of those would continue to help her develop her talent. I don’t think her talents could ever compare to Mariah Carey or Whitney Houston’s level of ability, but she could be comperable to maybe some of the other singers out there. However, you are entitled to your opinon of her singing ability.

              • DJ Loops Fruit says:

                her talents dont even compare to Britney Spears who really cant sing either
                and actually most singers out there didnt have someone like Kandi who tweeked her voice into somthing listenable
                when ever you hear her real voice its beyond bad
                drinking like a fish doesnt help either

          • nathania says:

            Kandi is a fantastic songwriter. I am glad she is getting exposure on this show. Plus she is a moral center and she is pretty picky when choosing her battles. I bet she is probably the most dangerous one of them all…she seems so low key but I bet she would cut you if you pushed her too far.

      • VincenzoNewYork says:

        I think Sheree is really cute and amusing. I hope she had a compelling storyline to continue to next season.

    • Brigid A. says:

      Vincenzo, good points. I have not been a big RHOA fan, watching occasional episodes. My interest is in the RHONY and BH. The New Jersey and DC ladies hold no interest for me whatsoever. But I did catch most of last night’s Atlanta episode.

      Carrying over my comment from the previous blog, I also really felt for Cynthia in her meltdown at the table. Kandi and Sheree were at their best in this episode and their sensitivity to Cynthia. Cynthia looks exhausted. Knowing as we do that she went through with her marriage to Peter is disturbing. She seemed to have so much anxiety/apprehension about compatibility and finances. I hope they are happy. She seems to be a nice person and very beautiful. Her castmates could not conceal their jealousy masked in all the snide comments about Cynthia’s walk on the runway.

      • VincenzoNewYork says:

        I really thought Cynthia did a fabulous job on the runway. The jealousy of the other women did show and I wonder what they think of their comments when they view themselves on TV. I agree, the only reason why I continued watching was the marathon. It captivated my interest just to finish the season.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      i love Sheree but hated when she called Cynthia a ungratefull bitch and she should woman up over the trouble she is gong thru
      uh really Sheree remember your reacttion to your first clothing line being ruined ?

      • Brigid A. says:

        I should have watched more carefully last night. I missed that comment by Sheree, unwarranted and just rude. Poor Cynthia.

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          i was in shock because as a rule i love Sheree and it just seemed very harsh esp after Cynthia told them all what she is going through
          notice no one gave her so much as a hug

          • nathania says:

            I think there is some jealousy there with Sheree…the b*tch comment coupled with the ‘size 12’ comment just seem to imply that Sheree has insecurities of her own. Cynthia is one of those women that really can bring that out in other women because she is drop dead gorgeous.

          • Rabble Rouser says:

            I agree with you.
            It wasn’t a lack of gratitude that was going to cause Cynthia to leave (although as the weekend progressed it became poor clear that it was never really about her) it was the worry, doubt and fear.

      • VincenzoNewYork says:

        her comment to Cynthia wasn’t fair, considering what she was going through. On commericials I thought that the comment was in reference to NeNe. I actually don’t remember that she was a fashion designer. lol. I never watched the first season. S2 I watched maybe 4 episodes and the reunion. I think it was a miracle that I watched most of it this season.

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          when Sheree was first coming out with a line the people that were making the clothes ruined them
          Trust me she didnt woman up
          she went off on them and had a fashion show WITHOUT any clothing
          in the immortal words of Dewrong
          “A Fashion Show Without Fashions ,How Dreadfull”

          LOL

      • Debbie says:

        Except for the “Bitch” part. I agreed with her.

    • Powell says:

      If you don’t like Kandi’s music R & B, I doubt it if you would like her earlier music. She was with a female group called Xscape. The were very successful!!!

      • nathania says:

        I remember them!!

        I didn’t know what her history was, I had though she was a solo performer because her voice is so strong. Her songwriting blows me away. Truthfully, her song ‘Haven’t loved right’ tears me up, that is an incredibly emotional song. She really knows how to write relatable songs. I honestly don’t think I could watch this show if it weren’t for Kandi being on there, a) because she is one of the most talented housewives ever and b) because she is a genuinely good person who takes things in stride and doesn’t intentionally start or involve herself in conflict. I think she’s adorable….if she left that show it would probably become unwatchable for me.

        • Powell says:

          She is a very successful writer for very several groups and others. She wrote “Shrubs” for TLC. That won music awards.

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          she really is the most talented with singing then any of the other house wives that have taken a go at it
          Id put wig at the bottom f the heap
          yes even worse then the countess

    • Powell says:

      Also, that’s how Kandi owns her home and music studio. Because of her earlier successful career. Most of the housewives can’t say they worked hard to get what they have. So many of them are living off of alimony alone, not money they went out of the home to earn.

      • VincenzoNewYork says:

        I feel that she really does have a beautiful voice and I hope that her hard work pays off. She deserves to have a successful album.

    The opening scene was annoyingly edited together – they show them “still fighting” and you can see out the window they’re flying down a highway, but when they cut to the bus pulling into the driveway, it’s creeping very slowly.

    I know this is OT, but as a nursing student, I read a couple of “nursing blogs”. One of my favorites is “Head Nurse”.

    The writer is very talented and funny, but had a rough year after a diagnosis of a rare mouth cancer. She posted a story about another blogger whose husband is fighting a rare and deadly brain tumor at 25 years old. His prognosis is not good, and it is a heartbreaking story. Jo (Head Nurse) recently donated money (from her followers) to help others with her cancer, and with the leftover $ sent it to this other young couple (Kevin and Tashi). Roger Ebert even tweeted the story and got involved.

    So, basically, this post is a shameless way to ask the LynnFam to donate $. Yes, I know it’s inappropiate to ask, but I just wanted to help Jo spread the word.

    Thank you Lynn, for allowing me to post this here.

    NeNe appears to be a one trick pony (like Teresa) – she is the designated “fighter”. Kim in the past, was her target. Last season she tried to fight Kandi and Kandi just wouldn’t put a dog in that fight. Sheree and Phaedra stay away from her and won’t engage. NeNe pals with Cynthia because no one else will play with her. After making Cynthia late for her wedding by demanding professionally applied makeup will ruin that friendship. So this season NeNe is still going after Kim and it appears that Kim is done with her too. Other than fighting, I see no skill sets or reason to be interested in NeNe. The louder and more violent she gets the less relevent she becomes to the show.

    • error404 says:

      Well, after playing the “edited poorly” card, Jill, Kiki, Ter and now Camille all claim to have been “bullied”. Maybe that’s the next excuse from Miss Nene. She was bullied. LOL

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        now that would be interesting to see play out!

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        Actually that was Nene’s claim on Season2 IIRC. On WWHL Andy mentioned viewer disappointment with her behaviour S2. She said they pick and don’t show everything. Andy said “so your blaming it on editing?…” and she just started on another tangent.

        I wonder…who went off the rails first. Nene S2 or Jizz S3. Which played out first timewise? I think Nene as Jizz was sure to get her on her side prior to S3’s debut.

      • Powell says:

        Those ladies don’t know what being bullied is about. Have they been watching the news for the past few years? I doubt it.

  12. HD says:

    I cannot believe those women dogged Cynthia like that. Granted, I was SHOCKED Cynthia had that much junk in the trunk! Which is not a bad thing. Black men typically love a woman with dunk-a-dunk and she got one! I was just surprised as a supermodel. I thought she would be stick thin. She been hiding that booty! For the women to talk about her like that I just couldn’t believe it. To be that mean. Really? Unbelievable.

    • buffywood says:

      “I apologize to my viewers and fans, and to my children and family and friends who love and care about me… I apologize to them for them having to see me stoop to such a trashy level. When you fool with trash, it can get all over you.”
      I had to turn the show off out of disgust before this part and I was shocked to hear what they said. Now I will have to go back and watch the ending. TLD turned me onto a site called FitBottomgirls.com and their tag line is “keeping a lid on the junk in the trunk”; the expression cracks me up. What did Phadra have to say about it? She was the one saying a “donkey bootie” was good thing. I remember because at the time I had to Google donkey bootie. Boy these women just can’t be nice and supportive of each other.

      • buffywood says:

        That first half of the post was Nene’s bullshit apology that for some reason copy/pasted with my post in error.

        • HD says:

          Amen! So true about Phaedra. I forgot about that. Honey I know women that would kill for that body. To have a slim waist and all that booty!! That is my personal goal! I am going to get there by the summer. 🙂

          Nene’s apology is not an apology at all. You are so right. You don’t apologize by still putting each other down. One thing my dad always taught me was, “what part did you play?” Nene didn’t have to act a fool. I could not believe her behavior. She does need to step back and get herself in order. She obviously is dealing with too much. I can’t stand Kim myself but she went overboard.

          • jezzibel says:

            Phadra has been putting down Cynthia as a model, her looks,her man, and what side of town she live on from almost the word go.

            • error404 says:

              So true! But then again, does PP ever have anything nice to say about anybody that isn’t family or a client.

              • IMJ says:

                Cynthia has a really nice figure. Those other ladies just seemed to be jealous.

                • Debbie says:

                  She sure does and she knows it.

                • buffywood says:

                  I would love to have her figure!

                  • Amber...Real Wife says:

                    Not one of those women would have the BALLS to walk a runway in a bathingsuit!

                    Nene’s a fat angry giraffe who’s very gapped and wide. She would love Cynthia’s figure at any age.

                    Sheree’s bottom half has been loaded with a hard 20lbs of middle aged spread. Did you see how huge her butt and legs are? SHE CAN’T fit her own sample sizes of her imaginary line! More meds please/Get the net!

                    And Phaedra just had a baby and is trying to reorganize that discombobulated ass! Sit down crazylady! Let a model work the stage.

                    BTW ….
                    PhaePhae’s past stripper name is
                    Juris Prudence! LOL

                    That said, Cyn looked so lovely and regal as she walked that 1st look. Gosh those hw’s don’t give anyone a break do they?

              • Powell says:

                Pp never has anything nice to say. She needs to keep her pie hole closed after coming up with that nonsense that she was 7 1/2 months pregnant, the baby was 8lbs, fully developed lungs and the doctor was going to deliver her at that time. All of this big farce because she was pregnant before she got married. Who cares. The fans wouldn’t even have thought about it. She thought we were stupid and believe a doctor would deliver a perfectly healthy mother and baby. She was trying to uphold her so-called Southern Bell status. Then she had the nerve to get made at the ladies for questioning her statements.

                • DJ Loops Fruit says:

                  i dont care for P that much but i think it had more to do with her mom and trying not to upset her that was the real reason behind the charade

            • Rabble Rouser says:

              DJ- (posted here since there was no room in the other trail ;)).

              I wasn’t to sure about NeNe’s comment, while junk in the trunk isn’t necessary an insult; I wasn’t convinced that it wasn’t a back handed comment.

              • DJ Loops Fruit says:

                i think if nene meant it to be back handed she wouldnt have said anything to her face like your bootylicious Nene IS a friend to Cynthia

              • dsc60 says:

                nene did make the comment about her age working against her as a model.

      • ms molly says:

        The comment from Phaedra that got me looking at the ceiling, mouth open was “big ol stankey bootie” It took me a minute to wrap my mind around that one.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      I thought the girls were very mean too; my DH however thought Phedra’s comment was hilarious.

      I thought that maybe someone’s who’s lips are big and full in a lushes way- but rather looking like someone who is having a sever allergic reaction shouldn’t be taking crap….

  13. katie says:

    Hi everyone, I have so much to catch up on. Great blog I can’t wait for the reunion on Thursday. Has anyone seen Onemoreinboston ?

  14. kmuellfa says:

    My earlier post is waiting for moderation, but I ask the LynnFam to please check out this link:
    http://head-nurse.blogspot.com

    totally OT, but I wanted to share the story with everyone here.

  15. Cheri says:

    I’ll say it again NeNe is both a bit–and a bully. There is no way I would be friends with someone like her. It’s sad she is like that because she can be very nice and funny at times and the she just turns so fast. I was knew a person like that and I just had to get her out if my life, those type of people are emotionally draining.

  16. Zoey says:

    Thanks Lynn, great recap! I haven’t been on here much for a while, but love it when I get to come back!

    One thing I don’t get, is that I read in an interview with Peter that he said Bravo made/encouraged them to move up their wedding so it could be on the show, and that was why he said he didn’t have all the money for the wedding in time.
    So if that’s the case, why wouldn’t Bravo pay for the wedding, or part of it? Lord knows tons of people have had the TV shows pay for their nuptials. It just seems like the financial drama is made up for TV.

    NeNe is OFF my list. She’s nuts. She’s a bully, obnoxious, and needs to go away. I think the other girls give her too much power. They should have ignored her. Now that would burn her up!

    • Debbie says:

      That’s a good point. Bavo pays for those really expensive trips and parties. I would think there could at least be companies that donate stuff for the exposure. Remember Sonya saying that at her parties all the stuff was donated?

    • Katie says:

      Yeah nice try Peter.

      I think that means that Bravo paid for some of the wedding. No doubt Cynthia and Peter could not afford it at all, but I’m sure Bravo paid for some of it as long as it took place during the show so that’s why the wedding happened they wanted and needed Bravo to pay for it. Obviously the happy couple still had trouble coming up with whatever portion was left for them to pay for.

      When I think of it, is why the bar bill was an outstanding item, Bravo would never pay for the booze if someone gets hurt and alcohol is involved Bravo could get blamed.

      But it’s both sad and hysterical that in the previews the other HW’s walk into the wedding and are immediately looking at how they cut costs. So sad and yet so funny.

      Just makes me ill when I think of the scene with the wedding planners and they were talking about the klassy event with unique talent and the best of the best of everything – What a joke.

  17. buffywood says:

    I figured I would do some digging today on Ms. Nene. Remember when she started she was all about domestic violence awareness and had a “charity” called Twisted Hears Foundation. Well, it was never a registered charity; it was a non-profit LLC (big difference). It appears it also no longer exists.

    Twisted Hearts Foundation was mailed a notice on 9/17/10 that it was involuntarily or administratively dissolved or its certificate of authority revoked by the Office of Secretary of state for failure to file its annual registration.

  18. Katie says:

    It is time to stick a fork in Atlanta HW’s, but since I thought it was time for Bravo to stick a fork in Jersey and they are still around I guess there is no end to wreck.

    Cynthia – please stop calling yourself a Super Model, if you had real success you would have some real cash saved to pay for the wedding and could cover the $3000 vs. and having Mom pay AND EVEN GOING FORWARD WITH A WEDDING YOU CAN’T AFFORD IS THE MOST PATHETIC AND SELFISH THING YOU CAN DO. If you don’t love your man for who he is without some big show you shouldn’t be getting married. Cynthia is a poser, she has no money, she drinks champagne like it’s some big deal, she is a joke bringing that guy (wedding planner) in to plan this big event that is going to cost I think they said “a million dollars at least” she is not a supermodel, and now she is sinking herself in debt more as she pretends she needs a big show of a wedding because she’s some kind of princess. You know you can still be a princess without the material crap you can’t afford. Try surrounding yourself with love and people who respect you and bask in the glow of your future and your family.

    I wouldn’t mind seeing Cynthia in 10 years when she is divorced and going through her old wedding album as she recalls the memories of how they couldn’t afford the wedding and how stupid and tacky the wedding looked with the dinosaurs in the background.

    Of course Cynthia pushed to become friends with Nene (all while Nene actually treated Cynthia like crap and flirted a lot with Peter) – but Cynthia needed to be on team Nene because just like all the other washed up HW’s who are in debt, they need the income from the show – it’s all they have going and Nene became famous and I’m sure Cynthia is hoping it will rub off on her.

    (BTW I think she looked beautiful on the runway, but still no “supermodel”, I think her face and hair looked great on her wedding day, but the dress she couldn’t afford was a stupid color.)

    Nene – is a jealous, miserable, moose who needs to anger management classes. It’s bad enough these adults call each other names but getting physical is a whole lower level and thug behavior I will never understand. Have people said things to me that made me want to smack them YOU BET! Have I ever hit anyone – NO, NEVER! People who lack that control need to see a professional to learn why it’s just not acceptable. Also skin color and race have nothing to do with any of this, the verbal and physical abuse in how they all treat each other is disgusting and unacceptable. But Nene’s tweets tell the real story of just how miserable she is.

    Nene can mingle with famous people and sit on Andy’s show with her shiny legs crossed ACTING like a lady but her actions prove she is not a lady and needs some serious help. The famous people acting like they love her are not doing her any favors at all. Get her help if you really care about her.

    I’m so over hearing Nene making fun of Kim’s wig, can’t sing, and the past Big Papa relationship, if that’s all she has on Kim – I’d say Kim is doing Ok based on this cast of characters. – It’s all just jealousy and Nene is pissed Greg cheated and goes after the easy target = Kim. With Kim pregnant by a famous local sports guy and in love – Nene will not be able to take it. But I love that Kim gives it back to Nene and doesn’t take her petty jealous comments.

    Now I hear that Gregg doesn’t want a divorce, talk about dead weight staying attached to the money maker – good luck with that situation Nene.

    Khandi – please get over the complaining about the money and fame thing with Kim. Hire a good business person to make sure you don’t get ripped off. But the whining needs to stop. To me you expected Kim to do the right thing and Kim had access to better business people who knew how to get every cent – you were played and will be again – hire someone to protect your end of the deal and move on. Also, something tells me that you needed Kim as much as Kim needed you in this whole situation.

    I really liked Phaedra and Sheree in this episode they were catty no doubt, pretty much calling it like it is. Lawrence was very funny on the show, but I was not impressed with his performance on WWHL I thougth he would be an amazing performer and really sing the hell out of that song.

    • okeydoekey says:

      Katie I absolutely agree with you.

      Cynthia = former supermodel. now super broke. u didn’t save… super dumb
      Russell = if a housewife’s husbands job is vague he’s a grifter. Greg, Joe G, Jim
      Kandi = get over it. Kim played u & I’m sure more have too. Money then song
      Nene = with all the energy she spends arguing she should be a lot thinner
      Taylor = needs to pull that top lip over her head and swallow
      Sheree = WWHL dressed down. It was nice to keep the focus on your friend

      • buffywood says:

        OMG, I spit a little coffee out laughing as I read Nene. Very funny!

        • Shannon says:

          I did the same thing (but mine was with diet coke) when I read Taylor. That was really good okeydoekey. 🙂

          • Debbie says:

            OT …MMMM Diet Coke. I quit yesterday and I am dying for some. I was up to about 10 a day if not more if I didn’t dump them out when they get a little warm.

            • AZ Girl says:

              Good for you Diet sodas are high in sodium and I personally like carbonated flavored water which can be bought at Safeway (Jewell). No sodium or calories and are really refreshing.

            • error404 says:

              I’ve been on the wagon for about 2 weeks now. Mmmm…. I might even sit in the back of a limo waiting for Kyle Richards to come and scream at me if it meant i could chug some DC from the limo bar LOL

      • Powell says:

        Yeah I can’t get over Cynthia not having any money. I have seen her work for years. Did she actually spend it all or is she holding back? If she is holding back in a way I could understand why, especially if Peter came to the well more than once. But on the other hand that wouldn’t be the best way to start off a marriage.

      • dsc60 says:

        it’s just semantics but i don’t think cynthia was ever a supermodel. a model yes, supermodel no. there are actually very few supermodels and those that are, are household names. i never heard of cynthia before. regardless, she is a beauty.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      Cynthia was a supermodel anyone living anywhere NYC knows that did you not see the eppy where she talks about investing heavily in Peters club
      LOTS of really wealthy people are NOT doing that well in this recession
      anyone that defends anything Kim has done is off her rocker LOL

      • JKW says:

        Cynthia said on the show that she invested 25K in the club. I don’t consider that is a heavy investment for someone that was a super model.

      • Katie says:

        Kim doesn’t bother me and I’m not off my rocker or anything else.

        • Debbie says:

          Me too. I find her amusing

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            i find her repulsive

          • Powell says:

            She is amusing. I like her because except for her delusions of grandeur because of Tardy, she really shows who she is. A gold digger with big boobs, tight clothes and big hair-wigs. She doesn’t pretend to be anything else, again except for the singing, screeching she does. She’ll realize she’s no Pop Star once her next song is a flop and she’s not asked to perform at the White Party again.

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          you like the fact that after she was having a lesbian affair and telling her g/f that she wanted to raise the child she is having with her and then dumped her because the sperm supplier now wants a relationship and all this after being supported by a married man and the fact that she ripped off the one person who made her single a hit something that sits ok with you ?
          LOL if so sorry hon your off your rocker a little
          it would be like saying what Kelsey did to Camille is ok because she is a bitch

    • karenne says:

      Katie, I completely agree!!! You said, what I was unable to articulate at all. I tried and it sounded “mean” and you said it, my same feelings, take on the show and women, and it sounds “without judgement, just as you see it”! and so do I.

      one thing I do want to add though, is about Kim Z. I think some of her behavior, for example “SWEEEEEETIEEE”, as she calls for her assistant. That bothers everyone, I see it as a KIM MOVE to be on the show…She doesnt care what the others think of her, not really. She is smart like a Fox. Cunning. the obnoxious things she does, are for SHOW.
      Not saying she has “real manners” or any morality guiding her decisions….but I am seeing a woman who knows how to stay on the show, and actually is quite popular, with the fans who love the Slutty One, or the Sociopathic one.
      There is something that draws you to her, and thats why, in my opinion, NeNe hates her so much. NeNe hates that her no talent wig wearing leg spreading former friend, is a draw to anyone. Sure, NeNe has her fans, but she cant keep it nice, for long. Eventually her nice NeNe is gone, and she reverts to Choke you NeNe. She can only play off of someone, without Kim, she wouldnt be so popular. oh, she has her Bloop Bloop Bloop now, and just how long will that last? As long as Andy lets it last. Cant wait to see NeNe on the Celeb Apprentice. did she embarrass herself, or did she show her best self?
      hmmmmm, I think her anger probably outruled anything decent…but that is my guess only.

      Kim, love her or hate her…..Kandi NEEDED her to draw a crowd.
      why? Cuz we all stop to see traffic accidents???
      I dont know but she is name and face and wig recognition, and Kandi needed that.
      Plus, those “crowds” at the “concert” were just silly. a stage on a parking lot, with a few people at the last one….Come on…that was not a concert and it was just silly to pretend it was.
      But I hope Kandi gets her music out there, finally without Kim Z. Kim Cannot sing, but I dont think she believes she can! Its all for the show, baby all for the show!!! then, to the Bank…..all the way! and you KNOW she is hoping for a spin off show!!!! Prego and the football player….
      Kim is the smartest one of them all……hahaha in Atlanta.
      Not nice, not anything else…but she knows how to promote herself and look good, when others are looking bad.
      And she does NOT care about what we say….at all.
      IN MY OPINION…..

          • Rabble Rouser says:

            Out of curiosity, what does the GLBT community the define the difference between a transsexual , transvestite, and a Drag Queen?

            I was under the impression that a transsexual is someone who feels the were born the wrong sex and are taking measures to correct that.

            That transvestites could be gay or straight- but get a sexual gratification from dressing like a woman.

            And drag Queens are gay men who are entertainers/performers- and it’s like a gay burlesque.

            Am I about right or totally off?

            • DJ Loops Fruit says:

              you pretty much hit the nail on the head except like everything else in this life there are no 100 per cent certanties
              most Tranvestites are people that sexually get off dressing in the opposite gender and can be either straight bi or gay
              Most drag queens are just doing it for the entertainment and can be gay or straight male or female (Drag Kings) but they dont live in drag

  20. Pantry Viewer says:

    UGH!! WHY do I torture myself and watch the Bravo video clips? I just watched some clips from the reunion, one of which is called “Calling out Taylor” or something close.

    Kim questions Taylor on why, if she has a domestic violence charity, did she accost her at Camille’s dinner and threaten to “Go all Oklahoma on her ass.” Taylor is SUCH a lizard and a snake. She tries dismissing Kim, but I’m proud of Kim for standing firm and making her point. When Taylor isn’t able to shut Kim down immediately, she gets uglier, telling Kim to leave her charity out of it. Um, Taylor, it is your heinous behavior that allows everyone, not just Kim, to make that valid connection/question.

    I also think, given the info oozing out about Russell’s money shenanigans, her fake “Ford” name, giving Taylor fake business titles that her story of her past isn’t true either. If she and Russell are basically grifters and trying to create a certain personna, having her involved with a charity is probably just the “image” they are trying to create. I mean, really, her husband didn’t know anything about it? He didn’t seemed moved when she “bared her soul” on that story.

    I get all irritated just looking at her fake sliminess. And asking Kyle’s thoughts on humiliating Kim even further with that tone she used with Kyle like self-righteous co-conspirators? UGH!

    • California35 says:

      I am looking forward to the reunion, but I hope I don’t end up as irritated (and sad) as I did after the finale.

    • kbinldo says:

      Taylor learned from Kyle: when Kim backs you into a corner, call her insane & a drunk.

      I’ve said it before & I’ll say it now: for someone who is allegedly so crazy & so drunk all the time, Kim makes very astute comments & actions.

      I’m not saying she hasn’t had a problem in the past or currently. She might have, but even so, she’s the only one who didn’t lose her mind & act like a banshee on Thursday, no matter how hard Taylor & Kyle try to spin it.

      • kotagirl29 says:

        As an alcoholic (I don’t say recovering because I will never recover only abstain) I can tell you that many of us can be drinking and still be lucid and productive. Being an alcoholic doesn’t mean that you are falling down drunk all the time. Some alcoholics are binge drinkers and some need to drink all day everyday in order to function. I could work and function while I was drinking. The only time anyone ever knew that I was drunk was when I went too far, got emotional, or got “puke-0n-your-shoes drunk. But one of the things that eventually gave me away was the fact that I was much more open and talkative when I was drinking than when I wasn’t. Kim seems (to me) to be similar in that respect. She won’t say shit if she has a mouthful, until she has a few drinks in her. I think many here are judging both Kim and Kyle a little too harshly. It is not easy to watch someone you love kill themselves with drugs and/or alcohol and sometimes the frustration and anger that they feel about the whole situation gets the best of them. It isn’t an easy road for anyone involved.

        • If You Had It Like This says:

          That was very well said and honest, kotagirl. Addiction is hard for everyone involved. Addict, family, friends. My dad was an alcoholic and his addiction and lifestyle eventually led him to an early death. I was angry and resentful for a very long time and then I realized I just had to set my boundaries and sometimes that meant not speaking to or seeing him for very long periods.

          It’s funny because it was really upsetting to me to see Kyle treat Kim that way even though I know what she’s probably going through. I think the co-dependent in me sided with Kim. I was never able to be that harsh. I’m grateful that I wasn’t now that my father is gone.
          Can you say guilt.com? Sorry… little gallows humor…

          • kotagirl29 says:

            You shouldn’t feel guilty and if you had blown up on him that is NORMAL. Addiction brings out passionate emotions in those involved. I can imagine it was hard for you, it was for me as well because I immediately flashed back to times when my family and friends were yelling at me because of what I was doing to myself. The ultimate goal is to help the addict, but loved ones need to do what is best for themselves as well. Even if it means cutting the person out of their life.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        I agree Kim has never come across drunk to me she has come off timid or afraid of some of the other women or the situation going on with conflict
        Kyle may very well believe its all due to booze i dont think she is lying when she says it
        Taylor on the other hand never looks like anything makes sense when she lashes out at Kim
        Kim actually felt bad and appoliged about the lips comment
        i never saw Taylor do anything like that abd look sincere
        that being said i do hate the way her hubby treats her

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      Some of it’s so hard to watch-some of the pain is too raw and too real.
      Lisa/Ken for how Cedric behaved when he left
      Kim/Kyle’s pain of addiction and family dysfunction
      Camille’s marriage ending

      Then there’s Taylor- who still tries to beat Kim down even tho Kim is correct. Who still tries to pit her sister against her. I can’t wait for her to get it handed back to her.

    • karenne says:

      I think Lisa agrees, when she said IN CODE….”I think they like the BH lifestyle more than being happy”

      Basically sounds like, Posers, Grifters, Wannabe’s, Not really one of us, etc
      in such a nice way…..

      oh, and from the beginning “I just dont get Russell at all”
      another code for same thing….

      Lots of Lisa’isms are fun, the second time around when watching the whole season, in one day.

    I am now more convinced than ever that all the hating on Kim has a lot to do with her financial savvy. Jealousy, plain and simple. Kim seems to be the only HW not in need of a job or money. Somehow, she just has it like that. At her friend’s mansion in Miami, she seemed comfortable with him and him with her, whatever might be going on or not going on. And even though she was showing some fat thighs, that yellow dress did look good on her, however too small it might have been. Kim may be a slut and a no talent liar, but she is managing her money and living like she wants to.

    Nene. Lord, help us, but I’ve seen the syndrome. Nene wants what Kim has, not just the money and connections, but the ability to move through the world without talent and without a clue, but with a full wallet. It’s a charmed life. Nene needs more than anger management, she needs therapy. If you have been in a room with someone like her, you know that sometimes all you can do is not agitate the wild person in the room, hope that they will wind down soon and then get the hell out 0f there when they are looking the other way. Of course the ladies didn’t engage in that nonsense. They know they would become the target if they did.

    It was also rude of Nene, a guest, to first verbally disrespect the host then invite someone without asking permission. It became clear that Nene forgot why they were in Miami. Maybe she thought, hell, who knows what that bitch was thinking. My guess is that she lost the job she thought she was going to have with the television station then could not contain her jealousy of Kandi and Kim who were continuing on with what they started last season. I agree with the poster who said Kandi needs to move on about the money and don’t repeat the mistake, just shut up about it already. I feel so sorry for Nene because she just keeps getting in her own way. She brings drama, but after the dust settles, there is no substance there. That is so very sad because she could do better, but like Sarah Palin, refuses to educate herself to be formidable and just comes off as well, unprepared and never on topic.

    Still don’t care for Sheree, sorry. Still not liking Fakedra. Cynthia I feel bad for because it is so easy to get married and then it takes everything you have and more to get out of it. All the signs were there and she did it anyway. I’m betting he will ask for alimony.

    Slightly off topic, did anyone see the article that Dwight was evicted from his “home?”

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      Most hookers DONT have to worry about Money

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      Dwight got evicted from his home?

      Poor Dwight, he was the RHOA golden boy for a while and now he’s just been dwronged.

    • error404 says:

      I’m a little confused on how you worked that one out. Kim is good with money? The woman held a yard sale in the parking lot of the Burger Barn! She kept freaking out because she said everything was worth much more than it was selling for, but her dad kept reducing the price because no body wanted to buy her old crap. She then paid a small fortune for hideous and unnecessary redecorating, which mostly consisted of hanging pictures of herself everywhere. Her house is up for sale, and not for very much either, less and $.5mil which is pretty low for a housewife. She just got dumped by Big Pappa and had to waste no time in finding another man to keep her. Even her surprise itunes money she refuses to share with Khandi.

      So.. cheating friends and #$%ing for $ is considered business savy now? Who knew.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        some of those items were priceless it would have been funny if after nene bought the bedroom set they had found one of Wigs overused vibrators LOL

        • nathania says:

          she probably could sell the stuff on ebay now to collectors and get more than she could at a yard sale because she is such a ridiculous persona.

          Kim really, REALLY knows how to work men up one side and down the other. I was pretty amazed at how quickly she got the driver of the tour bus in her pocket despite the fact that it was Kandi’s tour. Quicker than you can say ‘baldheaded ho’ she had him willing to stop and let her smoke all the time, flirting with her, and just generally crazy about her. One interesting thing I learned in nursing school (before I dropped out) is that many of the women in the beginnings of the nursing profession were prostitutes which is why the schooling is so strict. Kim actually has the same attitude many of the women in my nursing class had. Very laid back, nothing phases them, and many of the ones who did the best job had their minds on the salary as much or more as the patients. There was just an earthy quality to many of them, like Kim, and they seemed to know exactly what to say and do most of the time. Kudos to Kim if she can do it, after watching these last couple episodes I really don’t think she’s any big deal…she’s the same kind of chic that appeared on Patti Stanger’s show in LA, but about 30 pounds heavier…kind of a lazy southern belle version of an LA golddigger.

    Taylor’s Bravo Blog is up

    http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-beverly-hills/season-1/blogs/taylor-armstrong/out-with-a-bang

    While she makes some apologies, she chooses her words very carefully and quite frankly for me the damage is done and her blog doesn’t change my mind about her at all. I think it’s Taylor trying to do some damage control but from the clips of the reunion I have watched I think there is more damage coming.

    And of course let’s not forget she is coming out with a makeup line (OF ALL PEOPLE) so it can’t be easy to start a new project when people don’t like you. But for the record, I would never buy any products from a person who has had so much professional work done to her face. Taylor looks like a freak so like her store front executive consulting gig not sure she has the skills or in this case the face to be promoting any beauty products.

    (BTW same for Ramona’s beauty products, not that Ramona looks bad at all and she is not freakish looking like Taylor. But when I saw all the trips to the professionals and spending so much money on professional in office procedures I know dam well that her creams and serums she sells has nothing to do with how her skin looks.

    I think Taylor is coming out with a makeup line same difference – no thanks

    • Pantry Viewer says:

      Lord have mercy, that girl is still blaming. In justifying each of her ugly behaviors, each line blames someone for her actions. Disgusting.

      • Brigid A. says:

        Interesting that Bravo just posted Taylor’s blog while Kyle’s was posted immediately after the finale, and Lisa’s blog was up quickly as well. If Taylor was fine-tuning her masterpiece, trying to maximize viewer support, I’m guessing she failed miserably.

        There is no accountability expressed, except for a some laughable weasel words. She even tries asserting that KIM was the aggressor at the b-day party. And how would Kim intimidate Taylor you may ask? Apparently by standing up to talk to her after Taylor chased away Kim’s friend. Who wouldn’t stand up with a giant like Taylor looming over you? But it seems sweet Taylor wanted to sit side-by-side with Kim to have a “heart-to-heart.” Barf.

        She could see that Kim “wasn’t in the mood to talk.” No kidding! But of course we know narcissistic Taylor had to grab her last moments on camera because it was the finale.

        What I find most aggravating is she makes it seem she was just innocently following Lisa’s advice and now she regrets it (Taylorspeak for throwing Lisa under the bus). No acknowledgement that Kim had already reached out and talked to her at their prior mani/pedi session, unless I missed that somewhere in her rambling blog! There was no need for her to confront Kim at the party.

        There is even more nonsense and twisting of facts about NY, but I’ll let you all read for yourselves. Taylor’s behavior is vile and I hope she gets called out big-time at the reunion.

        • error404 says:

          Taylor’s blog has been up for days. I read it a while back. Did they take it down and put it back up now or something?

          • Brigid A. says:

            Maybe it was and I missed it? There are still no viewer comments posted on Taylor’s blog. And I’ve been curious to see how Adrienne sums up the last episode.

                • Brigid A. says:

                  Yes, see Error’s comment upthread. Anyway, I’m wondering how Bravo will edit the viewer comments. Could anyone possibly believe anything this woman says?

            • Powell says:

              This season it seems like all the ladies took their sweet time to post their blogs. I understand Kandi’s being late lately since she was on tour. I stopped reading Phaedra’s because hers has nothing to do with the episode.

          • Rabble Rouser says:

            I didn’t see it…it wouldn’t surprise me if she wrote some crap- then read all our fury- took it down- and came up with some other crap.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      I left a comment but you know Bravo- it probably won’t be seen.

      But I basically said she was in for it-and the more people talk about her the more will be dug up- and soon everyone will know who she really is.

    NOW THISSSSSSSSSSSSS WAS INTERESTING!!!

    BY BEN WIDDICOMBE
    DAILY NEWS GOSSIP COLUMNIST

    Tuesday, April 3rd 2007, 4:00 AM

    Thomas Kramer is a millionaire Miami property developer with a reputation in those parts for being something of a jerk.

    Jeffrey J. Steiner is the gazillionaire chairman and CEO of Fairchild Corp. Guests at his glittering 70th birthday party at the Rainbow Room on Saturday included Ivana Trump, Denise Rich and Carl Icahn.

    The NYPD is a local law enforcement agency which arrested Kramer during the party for allegedly sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy in the men’s room.

    “The police officer [was] informed by the victim that the incident transpired in the rest room, where the defendant grabbed the victim’s groin area and stated ‘high five!'” an NYPD spokesman told us.

    The arrest occurred on the 65th floor of 30 Rockefeller Plaza around 11:35 p.m. The police report said Kramer was charged with “endangering the welfare of a child, sexual abuse in the second degree and forcible touching.”

    A Miami friend of mine was not in the least surprised by this development. “That’s his thing – grabbing crotches,” she said.

    Kramer (who says he’s 39 on his MySpace page, but turns 50 this month, according to the police report) has had rape charges against him dropped in the past. He is also notorious in Miami for an incident in which he threw a glass of wine in a homeless man’s face.

    The South Pointe developer was released without bail and has a May 3 court date.

        OMG Marchello… I love him…

        • buffywood says:

          Yes Marchello! Sexy and nice too! I don’t know why I was thinking Vincenzo… I swear I can picture Diane Lane saying the name Vincenzo in something, maybe a different movie.

          • VincenzoNewYork says:

            haha that’s funny. Was there a Vincenzo in Eat, pray and love? I read under the tuscan sun in high school, but I never saw the movie. I have to watch it to visualize marchello.

            • Brigid A. says:

              Vincenzo, both are good movies. I preferred Under the Tuscan Sun with Diane Lane. Not crazy about Julia Roberts but the movie was ok. What made it worth it was Javier Bardem! Maybe I need to see it again just for a Javier sighting.

    There she is, scam artist and real housewife Cynthia Bailey in an Annie Leibovitz spread for ‘Vanity Fair’ sitting right next to Tyra Banks, within striking distance of Naomi Campbell and Inman. If only IHJZ blog had existed back then, we could have spared them the embarrassment and explained that Cynthia is NOT a supermodel! She’s just jealous of Kim Z! ROTFLMAO

      She stunningly beautiful. I saw a cover on Essence earlier today that was equally beautiful.

      I still don’t think this qualifies Cynthia to be a super model but I’m entitled to my opinion, right?

      “scam artist” and “Jealous of Kim Z” not sure where that came from, I think she’s a poser you know acting like you have money when you don’t but I didn’t read anything about a scam artist. And I thought it was Nene who was jealous of Kim??

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Im thinking Cynthia was more print than runway – either way she hangs with the best and takes an unbelieveable photo.

      • IMJ says:

        Im sorry but what exactly doesnt make her a supermodel? Being photographed with Annie Leibovitz? Being photographed along side Naomi Campbell, Iman and Tyra Banks? I dont think that happens to everyday people or most regular models.

        • buffywood says:

          I have no idea if she qualifies as a “supermodel”, I had never heard of here but then again I don’t follow fashion and rarely buy a magazine.

          Definition:
          The term supermodel (also spelled super-model, super model)refers to a highly-paid fashion model who usually has a worldwide reputation and often a background in haute couture and commercial modeling. The term was elevated to prominence in the popular culture of the 1990s. Supermodels usually work for top fashion designers and labels. They have multi-million dollar contracts, endorsements and campaigns. They have branded themselves as household names and worldwide recognition is associated with their modeling careers.

    • Kukulet says:

      I don’t see where it says that Cynthia is a supermodel, just that the picture is meant to represent 30 years of black models. Several of the gals in the picture aren’t supermodels, either.

      How is Cynthia is a scam artist? Just curious…

  28. Rabble Rouser says:

    I just noticed- NeNe blocked me on twitter. I guess it might have something to do with the time she told a 16 year old girl who said she wasn’t a fan anymore to ‘go kill yo self’- and I told her that maybe instead of consoling children to commit suicide she should focus on her layabout drug using son.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      do we know when the baby is due? Granny NeNe – lol

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        I suppose that would depend on whether of not this was “some chick from the hood” or someone with a law degree. For some reason, women with law degrees on that show don’ know when they got pregnant.

    • Sparkles says:

      Wow I can’t believe NeNe said that to a 16 year old. Then again, why am I surprised. Good for you, RR, in calling her out.

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        That’s the beauty of twitter- sometimes you can tell these Bravolebrities what you think of them and they answer. (good or bad)

          I had a friend that did a project with Jill pre housewives and said she was a real bitch
          i told her who it was and what he said and she said jokingly yes i am a real bitch just like your friend was a real queen LOL

  29. mariareads says:

    What a hot mess that episode was last night! I watched it early today and couldn’t believe how much worse the situation with Nene became. She is one big, angry woman who I am sure is capable of putting her hands on someone and doing some damage. Whtat’s her edge; her problem? Why does she have to go to that bad place? Her attitude is pure arrogance and she thumbs her nose at any and all. Who elected this bitch God? Get a job, Nene. Get a boyfriend. Get something. As much as I think Kim is a low life, she’s looking better and better as Nene works her bad mojo. I feel sorry for Cynthia. I think she has made a huge mistake marrying that Peter guy, but who knows what’s going on. Could she be that clueless? ~ Can’t wait to see Kim and the boytoy on WWHL. That show is so boring that it will, at least, have some life in it that night! Can’t wait for RHBH Reunion Thursday. I’m pathetic in the winter!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Jealousy is very unattractive. And NeNe wears it too well.

    • Cheri says:

      NeNe is trailer trash you can tell by how she acts

    • nathania says:

      I feel sorry for her because this behavior has always gotten her her way and she is probably running into the reality that it doesn’t go over so well in the real world. It’s hard to believe that people carry their ridiculous high school behavior through life but if they are this loud and violent like NeNe sometimes there is no one brave enough to ever stand up to them and they have to be embarrassed in an arena this huge to learn. She probably won’t be able to accept it or cope, just like Jill Zarin can’t get her head around it how universally despised she is. At least NeNe has a sense of humor, I laughed in spite of myself when she added ‘poke yo eyeballs out, bloop bloop!’ to her threat to Kim that she would snap her neck.

      The worst of it is I get the feeling that NeNe really held back during that confrontation, and that in her younger days she would have not done so.

      • Powell says:

        Isn’t NeNe on the next Celebrity Apprentice? I thought I heard her on something saying she and Star Jones didn’t get along. No surprise there. They would clash. I can’t wait for that to come on.

  30. kotagirl29 says:

    Great blog, but wouldn’t Kim need a brain to have a lobotomy? NeNe acted like a total bitch. Her behavior was off the charts. She should move to NJ and film with those “ladies” as they seem to be more in-tune with her outbursts and possible physical assault.

    • nathania says:

      I would pay good money to watch her put a hurtin’ on Teresa Guidice. That might be close to an even match.

      she’s always been a prude. The way she talks about sex, you’d think she was raised by nuns. Meanwhile, the Preacher’s daughter PP talks smut all day long. Now that is one girl who likes a like bit of rough.

            • buffywood says:

              Lol… yes I saw that. Consider it is quote directly from Nene’s book “Yes, I was a stripper – let the judgments ensue…I am not ashamed” Nene announces the bombshell in her new autobiography.
              I think it is safe to call her a stripper.

            • Adgirl says:

              Kim denies stripping or dancing. I thought it was a rumor but no proof.

    I have a comment regarding racism and NeNe. How is the word B**** offensive to African American women as well as pointing the finger? I think it would be considered OFFENSIVE to ALL WOMEN when using the B word. I’m sure that NeNe has used the B word to refer to Kim Z as well. {NeNe needs to analyze her behavior} I wonder if Kim Z has ever used the other word while speaking to NeNe?
    I hope they discuss racism on the reunion because it seems to be a pertinent issue as well as how they belabored that issue regarding the DC wives. {I mentioned DC and Racism before}

      • HD says:

        Well let me tell you…just kidding. It is offensive to some women. I thought they called each other b’s all the time…

      you arent a woman of color though are you
      wasnt it Kandi that said at that table in miami ther are certaing things you dont say to a black woman and they all seemed to agree
      remember when Kim didnt want to go to that bar b que and “eat chicken”
      a lot of people took that to be racist for her even to assume that chicken was gonna be served seemed racist
      Now i pretty much cant stand Kim but i seriously doubt she herself is a racist but the people surrounding her arent too sure
      so far this season weve seen castmates tha are people of color make some pretty ignorant comments about white people i dont think they are racist just miss informed

  34. Powell says:

    Lynn,
    You hit the nail on the head. The ladies sure didn’t give Cynthia any support.
    I usually like NeNe but she was wayyyyy out of line with Kim, she didn’t show Kandi any respect on her bus, and she didn’t show Kim’s friend any respect or gratitude for inviting him into his home. NeNe lost all the manners her mother taught her as a child. What a great role model for her sons. Now that she is going to be a grandma, I hope she doesn’t pass on how she handles disagreements with people. No matter what NeNe says I believe she’s still pissed with Kim excluding her from Tardy For The Party. I don’t know why NeNe cares how Kim and Sweetie interact. They clearly have a language all their own. If Sweetie doesn’t care how Kim speaks to her and treats her, then why should anyone care. I think that NeNe was taking her frustration with Greg out on Kim since she already had a beef with her. She just redirected her anger.
    I think that Cynthia should have postponed her wedding. She nor Peter were ready. On last weeks show when Peter told her he finally closed the restaurant, she didn’t show or express any sympathy for his loss of his business and dream. She was only concerned about the wedding. She said “people have already made plane/hotel reservations.” Hasn’t she ever heard that you can cancel reservations? It’s a lot cheaper. Peter said to her “that’s why I don’t tell you anything.” Well what kind of marriage are they going to have if each of them only thinks about themselves, and they aren’t upfront about everything? Very strange. I hope that we don’t hear about a divorce in the future. Can’t wait until you blog about the finale.

    • error404 says:

      there’s no excuse for Nene.

      Nor KIm for that matter. She had some nerve inviting those poor women to that skeezy guy’s house. Who has a bachlorette party at a child molester’s pad? Oh right, Miss Kim Z!

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        I wonder if NeNe googled him- and it had something to do with her rudeness towards him.

        • Katie says:

          She was actually rude to Kim and not all that rude to the weird dude. Nene is not that smart but might think of it now and use it as an excuse. And of course Kim will deny it or claim it’s all lies.

          • Rabble Rouser says:

            I thought she was incredibility rude to everyone who had to witness that behavior.

    Taylor Armstrong (née Ford) moved from her native Oklahoma to Beverly Hills seven years ago. She has a 4-year-old daughter named Kennedy with her husband Russell, a venture capitalist. In the family equation, Kennedy ranks above everything else: Taylor describes herself first as mom, then as a wife. Her number-one hobby is spending time with Kennedy.

    A former pharmaceutical sales rep for Pfizer, she knows how to sell herself, and she has a long history of business success: She helped found the company Baby Universe, and she operates her own consulting firm, eImplement.com. Philanthropy is also important Taylor, who volunteers for 1736 Family Crisis Center, an organization dedicated to helping to women and children exposed to domestic violence.

    Taylor’s not all work and no play: The tall blonde ascribes to the “work hard, play hard” school of thought. Though she’s the youngest member of the RHoBH cast, she feels she always has to look her best to keep Russell’s eye from wandering

      So much Bullhockey, so little time…

      She graduated from high school using the name Shana Hughes.

      During the period of 1992 – 1995 or 1996, she is using the name(s) Shana L. Hughes, Shana L. Taylor, Shana Lynette Hughes, Shana Lynette Taylor.

      Her mother was married to (name deleted for privacy) Taylor before 1996, when they are found living in California. He had been married previously and had at least one son.

      Shana/Taylor is starting to look rather interesting… Follow the names…

      • klmh says:

        I thought Hughes to Taylor had been explained. Lynette is her middle name, as mine is Lee. Sometimes I use it, sometimes I don’t, depending on the questionnaire or document Im signing, so what is interesting about that?
        I’m not being a smart ass, just wondered?

        • Kukulet says:

          She claims that she uses “Taylor” because it is her stepfather’s surname, she started using it when he “became her daddy” and everyone started calling her Taylor instead of Shana.

          Except that high school friends and even a school district spokeswoman have said that she was known as “Shana Hughes” during high school and “Taylor” was never part of the picture.

          Neither was “Ford”. She still hasn’t explained that one.

          • klmh says:

            I don’t know about the Ford name, although its been mentioned many times here. Im wondering if she decided to change her name because her father was abusive and that maybe she possibly was adopted by her step-father. Just a guess.

        • suzyqtip says:

          Just wondering where the Ford came into play. No explanation of that.

      • klmh says:

        Here’s an interesting site from Taylors high school days, with several pictures, etc.

      What mom thinks spending time with her only child a hobby?

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        Isn’t that kind of like when ‘Dad’ is watching the kids, and refers to it as ‘babysitting’ them.

    • okeydoekey says:

      Bet daughter Kennedy’s first name will become her last name in 20 years w/ a connection to Camelot and memories of summering in Hyannis w/ the fam.

    • Sparkles says:

      I’m looking forward to seeing Taylor explain how her maiden name got to be “Ford.”

      I’m sure there is a logical explanation. Like she went to register her car at the DMV and they accidentally changed her name.

    Interesting articles about Kim and Kyle Richards. There are two stories, one concerning Kim’s rehab and one on the home mentioned by Kim.
    http://absurdtosublime.net/

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      The best was the last blurb about Jill Zarin, Ginger and Betty White. Zarin is an obnoxious fame whore!

    • Brigid A. says:

      Wow! Kyle and Mauricio checked Kim into rehab the very night of the finale episode? Did anyone else catch that? The episode where Kyle exits the limo to a waiting Mauricio leaving Kim alone crying in the limo? After Kyle refused to let her leave the party, and tracked her down in the limo like a trapped animal.

      Can someone be checked into rehab against their will? Kim checked herself out a week later.

      Kyle has been making statements, telling the world about Kim’s personal business, attempting damage control and not a word from Kim. This just seems so wrong. I’d like to hear Kyle admit her own issues for once, and quit focusing on her sister. Go away, Kyle, and stop talking for awhile.

      • nathania says:

        I think you have to be a danger to yourself or others. There is the 5150 thing in California, there was some insinutation Kim might ‘hurt herself’ in that state but who knows really if that was just more hype from Kyle. I think the only way you can be forced into rehab is with a court order from a judge and that is usually in lieu of jail time.

        • klmh says:

          She removed herself from Betty Ford after a week. She went voluntarily.

        • Brigid A. says:

          I live in California and have heard of the 5150, but I’m not familiar with the code stipulations. Maybe Kim felt so beaten down that night that she agreed. But I don’t think the Betty Ford center is right around the corner from Beverly Hills. It would have involved a long drive and some last minute arrangements with the center late at night. It just doesn’t make sense to me.

          And I still maintain that Kyle could have her own substance abuse issues. She’s got a fierce, uncontrollable temper and she always shuts Kim down when Kim tries to respond or make a point. Everyone seems to dismiss Kim yelling at Kyle that “she drinks all god damn day!” That outburst was in response to Kyle’s announcement on national TV that Kim is an alcoholic. And Kyle still can’t shut up about her sister.

          • mariareads says:

            Hmmmm…Kyle…maybe diet pills? Remember the short exchange in her kitchen when Kim was telling her to use something other than butter for the potatoes because it’s better for weight and Kyle jumped down her throat and said something like-your thin and I’m not, right?

            Lots of women are taking Meds for ADD to lose weight and it makes them very irritable.
            Dummies like me go to Weight Watchers. (4.8 pounds last week!)

            • Brigid A. says:

              Good point. Kyle openly frets about her weight. But she is seen drinking at almost all the social occasions . Maybe she’s a social drinker but I don’t think so. Her mission has been to expose her sister all season and strip her of any privacy or dignity, perhaps to conceal her own issues.

              Kim should be making the statements about her rehab, leaving rehab, etc., if she so chooses, NOT Kyle.

            • Rabble Rouser says:

              4.8 lbs last week !!! Great job…

              I don’t know if I lost any weight or not since my scale isn’t working.

    • Cusi77 says:

      Now is official! I do not Kyle AT ALL!

    • Katie says:

      All I know is Kyle sure spends a lot of time explaining herself and the situations she’s in. Not sure now if it’s because we are so wrong about her and it’s a mess she’s trying to explain or if she’s just trying to cover her tracks.

  39. WindyCityWondering says:

    Of all the BH housewives – Taylor is my vision of the typical trophy wife with a twist of the grift thrown in for good measure. She lines them up and Russell takes their money.

    After watching that train wreck last night & reading Lynn’s recap, I am so glad I never got invested in RHOA. RHOBH is enough for me. 🙂

  41. Adgirl says:

    NeNe’s rage is jealousy.
    She doesn’t like or respect Kim. She is enraged by Kim’s tiny success with the song.
    According to NeNe, Kim doesn’t deserve to have a success.
    NeNe is punishing Kim for her audacity to perform or be paid for song downloads!
    “Who do dat biotch think she is??? Bam!”

    Oh, best of all….
    My favorite complaints of NeNe’s: Kim can’t sing. Kim doesn’t practice. Kim doesn’t take it seriously.

    Then we see NeNe arrive to her Jermaine Depree interview completely unprepared!

    • error404 says:

      They are all just alike. Remember when Sheree’s Dancing Stars of Atlanta coach was all in a tissy because miss lazy ass can’t dance and wasn’t even practicing. Then the night of the event, Kim and Nene, who are just as talentless and lazy, but sat with faces like wet weekends and then slagged Sheree off to the camera. And did anyone have anything nice to say about Sheree’s Academy Award worthy star turn in that play, for free. With “friends” liek these women, no one needs enemies.

  42. HD says:

    You know it just dawned on me…why doesn’t Cynthia parlay her modeling career into a business for herself instead of following Peter’s dream? She could be a modeling coach for up and coming talent. In places like Atlanta everyone wants to be a model or something like that. She can do that. She is wrapped up in Peter’s career she needs to be focusing on how to upgrade her own career. No one can model forever.

    • klmh says:

      That is such a great idea. When I was a teenager, my parents thought it would be a good idea for me to attend etiquette classes, including how to set a table, apply makeup adjust and walk straighter, just that type of thing. It would be right up her alley and she could and would make a nice living at it in Atlanta. Anyone would be happy to have her as an instructor and teacher. She is a lovely lady, inside and out, imo.

    • DarkSonnet says:

      Very good point.

    • Katie says:

      Well she was in a picture someone posted earlier right next to Iman and Tyra they got modeling and fashion TV show gigs why not Cynthia maybe not nationally but like you said locally in Atlanta.

      I wish she would dump Peter and get back with her daughters father, he’s so hot. Peter has a temper I don’t care for she can do so much better.

    • kotagirl29 says:

      Or as an agent. She already knows the photographers, the designers, she has all the contacts and she knows the industry inside and out. She would probably make a wonderful modeling agent.

    • nathania says:

      I read online she is 43, so she better get busy. The truth is though, the sky is the limit for Cynthia because she is stunning, in print or on the runway either one. I think she could support herself that way, and marrying Peter seems like more trouble than he’s worth, honestly.

    • Debbie says:

      Does she tweet? Have you told her this? This is a GREAT idea for her to really look into. If you haven’t told her, someone should. This is one of the reasons I love this board so much. It’s here for so many other reasons than to just discuss the HWs. This is a place where people build each other up and not tear them down.

      • HD says:

        She does tweet but I don’t. Maybe someone here can tweet it to her and perhaps it might get her to thinking about it and she can go for it. She may have thought about this already but she needs to do it and maybe if enough people tell her that might push her into stepping out on faith and trying it.

  43. Cusi77 says:

    @HD_ I left you a message up, up, up, in the beggining of this blog! Thanks sweetie!

    • HD says:

      I just read it. For some reason in my heart I knew you were going to give that woman your jewelry. I don’t know how I knew it, I just felt like you were. You can’t bless someone and not be blessed back. After you give her this gift, I have a funny feeling you will be getting more clients. That is when you charge. LOL. 🙂 Can’t wait to actually see the jewelry! Please ask Lynn how to post the pictures. Do you make jewelry for regular working folks like me that can’t afford something real pricey?

      • Cusi77 says:

        Lots of love! I’d like to see women wearing sculptures instead of jewelry! Of course you can have one! I know how to work, I do not know how to sell! Lol.

  44. klmh says:

    This is a bit risque but I laughed:
    A little old man shuffled slowly into the ‘Orange Dipper’, an ice cream parlor in Gilbert , and pulled himself slowly, painfully, up onto a stool.
    After catching his breath he ordered a banana split.
    The waitress asked kindly, ‘Crushed nuts?’
    ‘No,’ he replied, ‘hemorrhoids

  45. Amber...Real Wife says:

    The funniest part of the show was Phaedra. After feeling overwhelmed, she took her mini-vaca seriously. She was so desperate to walk in the sunshine of freedom, that the Kim/Nene drama was just entertainment for her. She enjoyed the concert and was seen singing like a fan. She enjoyed the raunchy entertainment, as she was the one who set it up. She was having a party no matter what! She had food, liquor, concerts, fashion shows, strippers, fights, gossip + snark all weekend. At least one person enjoyed herself totally and that was Phaedra!

    • buffywood says:

      She was just happy to get away from the baby for a little while. I don’t mean that in a bad way either… sometimes you just NEED a little break.

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        Who you telling?! LOL

        It was great to see a new mom get a break. Those first few weeks are a test. I think Phaedra would’ve danced to elevator music if given a chance. It was pump and dump and watch Kim get a lump! LOL

      • HD says:

        I hate to say this, it is really killing me to say this, but Phaedra hasn’t been getting on my nerves aymore. Uhhhhhhhh did I just type that out? Head for the hills, the end is nigh!

        • Debbie says:

          Maybe the first few weeks we saw was just her being nervous and she may have been trying too hard.

    • lillybee says:

      Phaedra is a much more attentive mother than I would have thought.

      • Kukulet says:

        I think so, too. I also think her maternal feelings took her by surprise, but they definitely seem to be blossoming.

      • error404 says:

        Please. I had a stay at home mom. Just one thing she didn’t do; leave me at just a few weeks old so she could go down to Miami and drink and get a lap dance form some strippers.

  46. HD says:

    Did Kim say she would much rather hang out with that weird man that go to work? What does she think she is doing? Kim sings ONE song to a track. Such hardddddddddddd work.

    • DarkSonnet says:

      Yes, but I bet staying with the creep pays ever so much better… 🙂

    • error404 says:

      Kim is sooooo not a natural performer. She comes off as stiff and uncomfortable on tv, and I’m always shocked when the other HWs say the audience was into Kim live, because none of that is evident on tv. I think she’d rather stick toothpicks in her eyes than perform on stage, and it’s no surprise that she opted for pregnancy by a footballer over singing lessons.

  47. jeang says:

    But if Cynthia tried to do any of those great ideas while still married to Peter, I think he would either hate the idea or highjack it and try to manage it and bleed some more money out of her. She really needs to lose that tyrant.

    • HD says:

      You ain’t neva lied! I can see that so clearly. He would try to be involved read take over and sadly Cynthia appears like the type of woman that would let him take over and he would run it into the ground and just mess everything up.

      • DarkSonnet says:

        Take over and make Cynthia miserable in the process. I don’t think he could just take over, he would have to minimize her to have total control without opposition.

        • Cusi77 says:

          Dark Sonet Peter has already done a lot of damage on Cynthia. In the beginning of this Season she said she was living in New York and follow Peter to Atl. “to make Atlanta another NY fashion center” Hmmmmm… a little bit too dreamy our Cynthia’s thinking processes…

      • floridagirl88 says:

        Then when it failed, he would blame her and tell her she needs to stop trying and just let him handle things. I still say he is going to hit her up for alimony as soon as she has an income.

        • Katie says:

          Well if Cynthia wants to get rid of Peter I’m sure Nene would take him off her hands in a NY minute.

          So jury for me is out on Peter I go back and forth and wonder if he’s not a good guy or just got caught up in this whole HW mess for Cynthia and while his business was going under for all to see.

  48. jeang says:

    Yes I think I hate this Peter even more than the salahi dude, cause michaela knows what she lets him do, cynthia is and must still be blinded by love. That is hard to imagine, what she sees in him and why arent her mother and sister warning her? It must be blind love. ick, I dont even think he is good looking, he isnt a ugly, but handsome and a good catch???? NOT!!

    • floridagirl88 says:

      I think Cynthia is embarrassed. After all that big talk at the start of the season, we now see her has weak. I don’t think her first concern after learning of the business failure was her wedding. I think it was having to tell people they spent money for nothing. She was too embarrassed to back out. It’s gonna cost her, that pride.

      • Dawn says:

        I don’t understand Cynthia’s loyalty to NeNe. Anyone with a grain of common sense would pull back after witnessing NeNe’s disloyalty in discussing Cynthia’s “contract” with Kim and laughing behind her back about it as well as other numerous comments NeNe has made about Cynthia in the outtakes.

  49. Allison says:

    NeNe, you had people back on your train at the beginning of the season. Now you have gone and stepped in a big pile of poo. People want to root for you when you act civil. It really is that simple.

    • DarkSonnet says:

      Nene is convinced that her appearance on the Apprentice is going to be her claim to fame and that it will “vault” her into prominence/demand that she so richly deserves.

      Does anyone think Rose Colored Glasses are involved here?

  50. Adgirl says:

    If NeNe hasn’t made it by now then she probably won’t.

    Celebrity Apprentice is her only hope to break out. But to what end?

    She can’t interview. She can’t act. Her book flopped.
    A reality correspondent for ET? Maybe they’d give her a 6 week stunt trial.

    She wants a talk show but she doesn’t listen. I’d be afraid to be a guest on the BAM show. What if she tried to choke me??

    • DarkSonnet says:

      We would all run in and save you. Cusi made a pair of super strong, beautiful silver handcuffs and a bejeweled Hannibal Lecter mask to subdue her.

    im told im justanothervirgil, mary has a strange sense of humor, gotta love it. She is sleeping right now so i wanted to thank you all, you help her. She has cataracts that grew really fast and they are still growing. There may be surgery for her but she’s not sure if she’ll have it. I’m pushing her – she will. Even if it’s only for a short time she should be able to see if it can be done. i try to take time to read this blog with her and have expanded the screen so she can see it herself early, before her eyes get too tired. i have started to watch the shows to, but dont tell her. she often mentions the nice things you have said to her and hwo much it means to her. thanks.

    • Adgirl says:

      Hey Virg. You are being an angel keeping Mary involved with something fun. We all thank you for that.
      I had catact surgery and it’s really easy and works fast. My dad had it when he was quite ill ,and it helped him keep his mind off things because he could read. My mom said he could finally see all of her wrinkles. LOL.

      Don’t wait too long. She may need both eyes done and usually they do one at a time. Healing may take longer because of her current health.
      Good luck to you both.

      On another topic, I posted awhile back, early in the HOA season that I thought we were seeing Nene 2.0 ( a version she packaged for this season). It appears that I was right, but I had no idea how far she would fall from her facade. She is a giant who blunders and bullies her way through life, taking everyone’s silence as permission. She is loooong overdue for the proverbial wake-up call. One ringy dingy…two ringy dingy….Is this the party to whom I am speaking…yes, Nene, your time is up!

      I’ve missed posting for a couple of weeks. Happy to be back in the fold. Looking forward to hearing from Boston – been wondering how she is doing.

    ** Top RH Twitter Annoyances **

    Just for kicks I’ve started this list. It applies not only to a number of the RHs but also other celebs. Feel free to add!

    1) Retweeting Praise from a Fan
    (How humble of you to let us know that someone likes you! It was helpful for you to forward the compliment to us since we may not have seen it among the 100 others tweets criticizing you.)

    2) Asking Followers to Contribute to a Charity
    (There are plenty of ways to raise money for charity, including explaining the benefits of the charity on your blog and posting links to further information. But sending a 140-character-limited tweet that says “plz donate 2 X charity!!!!” is not a compelling pitch and unlikely to achieve much result. A cynic would even say that you are trying to boost your image. Here’s an idea: since you appear on TV showing off how rich you are, why don’t YOU donate to the charity and let us know how much you are giving? Announce that you will match fan contributions up to a certain amount!

    3) Senselessly Making Conversations Public
    (There’s no better way to show how much other RHs and celebrities like you than to publicly tweet them about your next get-together. Why call, text, or DM if you can converse publicly to show the world that you’re popular? This is also a good way to send congratulatory notes to show you’re magnanimous.)

    • Brigid A. says:

      I’m not a tweeter, but judging from the housewife re-tweets posted here, I find Kelly’s non-stop, nonsensical tweets most annoying, followed by Jill Zarin. Not sure if Taylor promotes her “charity” on Twitter. She has zero credibility IMO, and that applies to her alleged abusive childhood.

      • error404 says:

        I don’t tweet for the same reason I don’t go to stationary trade shows, hotel management conventions, or any other event having to do with fields i am not involved in. I understand that celebrities need to tweet, but I have no interest in being tweeted to.
