I Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills – The Dinner Party From Hell

I Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills – The Dinner Party From Hell

Bravo owns me, they really do.  There’s another hour of my life paid to the Network from hell watching the Dinner Party From Hell, all for the sin of Reality TV.

There was no new information here, we just saw a few extra shots of tables being set, cocktails being poured into buckets, and insults being hurled.  We saw a lot more Faye Resnick than necessary, unlike Allison Dubois, Faye agreed to be interviewed for this very special heartwarming episode.

I did catch a few things that I missed the first time, Kim and Taylor’s argument started as Kim was talking to someone else and Taylor attacked her.  That makes the scenes showing Kyle blaming Kim for “starting a fight with Taylor” even more special for the sisters.

Kyle brought Faye Resnick for a few reasons, not the least of which was because Faye knew the entire story about what had happened in New York, but surely Kyle knew that Faye wasn’t a wallflower, she knew Faye would stand up to anyone who attacked Kyle.  She also knew that Faye had a cool phone with direct internet access to Camille Grammer’s naked photos.

It was very gallant of Kyle to take the heat for searching out those naked photos and showing them to everyone in the limo.  Once again the power of …video cameras, those sneaky video cameras that had been in Kyle’s face for months prove Kyle to be a liar as we watched Faye do the honors.  Kyle simply thought after watching the season play out to the end, and that scene in the limo had been cut, she was safe to take the blame at the reunion for the naked photos.  Oops, Kyle forgot about lost footage and Bravo’s love for full hour dinner parties being aired.  Kyle had not seen those photos before, that was obvious.  When Lisa tried to take a peak, Kyle snatched it away to get an even closer look.

Camille didn’t fess up to having Allison there as a human shield and battering ram.  Allison, with the style and grace of a Mack truck attacked Kyle and Faye with such clever zingers as “you’ve got two legs, last time we checked”.  It was Taylor’s brilliant interview trying to decipher Allison’s comment that was a thing of beauty.

Taylor asked if there was a dead person under the table cutting off people’s legs.  Am I really sitting here watching this on TV?

Obviously producers interviewed the dinner guests again after they had a chance to watch the footage as those that left the dinner party were commenting on what was said by the three left behind.  Camille was also free to comment on the childish behavior of the ladies in the limo after they left her house.  Camille called the porno party in the limo a “set up”, I am not sure what she means by that since the evening was planned by Camille.  Camille thought she was off the hook, by season end the subject of her porno hadn’t come up but damn it all for those lost footage episodes.  They’ll bite ya in the butt every time.

When the genius with the electronic cigarette, that Kim thought was a movie prop, was pushed to give Lisa a reading, Adrienne noted that it seemed canned.  Those of us that don’t believe that Allison could read a comic book, let alone a person, know that when the subject of the reading opens the door, the psychic runs with it.  Lisa asked about her Grandmother leading the crazy lady to believe that Lisa may have been raised by her Grandmother, all the alcohol she was tossing back must have been throwing her off of her game.

One of my favorite lines has to be Allison answering Lisa’s statement that her Grandmother was liberal and open, “This isn’t about politics” said the brilliant Allison.  I think the entire table gulped back a giggle on that one, even Camille.

Kim leaned over and whispered to Adrienne, “Welcome to New York”.  The only one who wasn’t drinking made a funny.

We watched again as Taylor demanded that Adrienne stand up and put a stop to the madness.  I still don’t really understand why Taylor thought that Adrienne would or even could put an end to the fight.

Taylor’s standing and screaming “Enough!  Enough!” finally did end the party, yet the bickering continued as they all got up to leave.

Allison Dubois made a complete and utter fool of herself, her hand gestures that Faye Resnick described as that of a truck driver and worthy of the trailer park really would have caused Luann Manners to faint dead on the floor.  Just for good measure Allison added the double middle finger salute in case anyone missed the jerking off hand gesture.
Camille, DeDe and Allison left at the dinner table on their own after the Fab Five departed and Kim tripped her way out the door, took everything to a whole new level and that level was decidedly down in the toilet.

Allison should never drink if that is the way that she acts, Camille warned us that she likes to hit below the belt when she consumes alcohol but this was so far below the belt, it  took them out at the knees.

Allison knows when they will die and what will happen to their families, can’t wait for their children to go missing so that they can come crawling back to her for those cracker-jack psychic abilities and she loves that about herself.  What?

Allison and Camille managed to get in a few laughs at the expense of Kyle’s husband Maricio, insinuating he’s having an affair with the nanny.  Kyle told us she didn’t have a nanny so I guess that puts an end to that rumor, it isn’t possible for a man to have an affair unless they employ a nanny apparently.  In reality it seems as though Maricio is an unlikely candidate to be having an affair and just maybe Camille was hit in the face by karma as her own husband, Kelsey Grammer was probably lying next to his mistress as Camille’s party raged on.

DeDe managed to get a word in as Allison guzzled down another cocktail, she noted that Taylor was not Camille’s friend.  Doesn’t miss a thing, that DeDe.  Camille interviewed that Taylor had given her inside information in New York and said that the other housewives were all going to gang up on poor Camille.  Taylor had to ensure that Kyle was all hers with no other distractions so Taylor loved that Kyle and Camille continued to do battle.

Did they really expect the snake Taylor to come forward and defend Camille as her new best friend Kyle was being attacked?  Not a chance!  DeDe chimed in that these women were not Camille’s “friends” and Allison added “they can’t even spell friends”.  Through the miracle of Bravo’s editing, we then see Kyle spelling the word “friends” and Taylor apparently really couldn’t spell friends, so she spelled, “crazy”.  Taylor did so well on her spelling bee that someone gave her a set of those big fat red wax lips from the goodie box.

Another great interaction had Allison and Camille noting what Kelsey would have done if he had been there.  Their assumption that Kelsey would kick everyone out of the house is an interesting one. Somehow I picture Fraser Crane allowing his dad to live in his Seattle condo for years without kicking him out and his ex-wife Lillith walking all over him.  Yea, I think Fraser most likely would have popped some popcorn or enjoyed the show with a brandy before even considering kicking anyone out.

Throughout the episode Camille and Allison insisted that this wasn’t a set up, that Allison had no idea about the previous battle in New York and that Camille didn’t choose her as a dinner guest because of her vicious nature when drinking alcohol.  Do you suppose Bravo producers bought Camille a lovely set of glasses the size of your head as a gift upon arriving at Camille’s dinner party?

I will admit that both Lisa and Kyle pushed Allison for “readings”, to the point where Kyle actually joked that she should bring out her credit card.  When both Camille and Allison politely told the group that there would be no readings, Allison was off the clock and present as a dinner guest and not the evening’s entertainment, the ladies should have let it go.  We know that both Lisa and Kyle have psychic’s of their own so why push?

I believe that both Lisa and Kyle wanted to out this woman as a fake, a phony and a fraud.  They both pay the real deal to tell their future but Allison had to be tested, of course she failed miserably and then proceeded to rip Kyle apart.  Camille noted that Allison must have been picking up her vibe when informing Kyle that she’s more comfortable around men and that her husband will never emotionally fulfill her.  Even after the crowd departed, Allison continued her take on Kyle insinuating that her husband is less than faithful, once again, Camille’s fate comes out of Allison’s mouth.

In other housewives news:  Real Housewives of Orange County news, Slade Smiley’s son appeared on Glee last night:

Gretchen Rossi tweeted:
@GretchenRossi:  Ahhh Grayson was the kid that came running up to Matt Morrison!! How cute is he!
@GretchenRossi:  Ahhh that was so so sweet with all the kids on Glee! Makes u really realize what is important in life!

Umm…Paying child support is kind of important.  Just sayin’

Thank you to HD from our blog who pointed out this photo, HD said:
Upthread Kellita mentioned Faye and her look. Faye is a woman that is trying to run from herself.

http://www.lipstickalley.com/f146/faye-resnick-271891/

Scroll down to the third post and see Faye and Nicole pic together. I think that will explain why she looks the way she looks now.
It appears as though Faye has had some work done, no?

WOW!
Dina Manzo Tweeted a photo of herself with Alex McCord and Sonja Morgan with the caption:“New” New York Housewife?  What do you think?

You don’t want to know what I think, moving on…

Speaking of the New York Housewives, Rachel Ray featured our old friends, Sonja, Alex, Luann, Jill, Ramona and Kelly.  They mentioned the new housewife Cindy Barshop briefly but apparently they want to keep her as a surprise for viewers so she wasn’t making the talk show rounds.

Rachel Ray didn’t just allow the ladies to sit and relax to talk up the show, they each had to present a helpful tip.  The tips ranged from lame to stupid and while I really like Sonja Morgan, she was acting like a Housewife on Steroids, spinning and jumping around the stage as she demonstrated how to install a fake hair piece onto your head.  Luann, ever the table manners and etiquette queen, reminded us that you should make the “ok” sign with your fingers to figure out where your glasses should be and where your side/bread plate should be.  Thank goodness Luann came along when she did because I almost put my wine glass on the wrong side of my plate, oh the horror!

Kelly Bensimon rehashed her brilliant stuffed animal chair, for those of us who have already seen where her stuffed animals go to die it was quite dull.  Rachel did her best to sound enthusiastic about Kelly’s helpful tip but you could see it was a struggle.  I’m sure it wouldn’t be traumatic for a child to see you take a staple gun to the head of their beloved stuffed animal.

Jill taught us what runway models have known for years, double sided sticky tape typically used to hold men’s hairpiece’s in place can be used to make sure you don’t have a Janet Jackson or Brittney Spears moment and show your goodies in a wardrobe malfunction.

Alex’s tip was a bit disappointing, I know she can do better but when having a dinner party, she puts a collapsible colander in the bottom of the ice bucket so water is collected and the ice stays…well ice.

Probably the best tip of the day was Ramona, believe it or not.  Staring a business with just $50 sounded insane but Ramona described how to get yourself a Tax ID number, create a web site and open a business bank account.  Well done Ramona!  Another great tip would be to put that $50 bill you’re waving around right back in your wallet.

Expect to see the New York Housewives making the talk show rounds in the next few weeks as they continue to try to build excitement around Season Four coming up this spring on Bravo.

Bethenny is working on a new Work Out Video, she posted a behind the scenes video of the making of her new offering:

      • quincyil says:

        Thank you WSL and everyone… I am off today. Just got a great new job this morning. My granddaughter is going to call and talk jibberish to me this afternoon.

        In honor of Jill’s birthday, I am going to share that my mother gave me a brand new double wheel barrel which is yellow. I dropped a bale 25 ft down and it cracked my old manure wheel barrel when it hit it. As Jill likes to share the prices of her gifts, I too will share. It was $112.00 and I put it together myself to save 12 bucks. Plus, the kid who put the last one together lost the washers on the bolts so I had troubles with it.

        Illinois tax is 7.5% I just threw that in to get more numbers as Jill’s gift was $350,000.00.

        I love my wheel barrel and my mom who wanted to buy something I would love.

        I hope everyone has health and happiness in their lives.

  2. Olivia says:

    I have made the decision that no matter how detestable Jill Zarin may be, Kyle Richards IS THE WORST “HOUSEWIFE” EVER!

    She is one nasty piece of work and it shows in her interactions with Kim, her own sister. Outing her as an alcoholic, whispering that she was “drinking” at a party, revealing Kim’s “failure” at dating, implying that Kim is such a “trial” to deal with that their own mother worried about her right up to her death, are things best left unsaid for a national audience to swallow and digest. And for what reason? To make herself look like a put upon martyr whose life is interrupted in having to deal with Kim? It is loathesome.

    For Lisa to sit there and insist on Kyle’s “good qualities” is beyond comprehension. Those good qualities are elusive from what I have seen. A social climbing wannabe who would subject her own sister to the mistreatement of her “friends” is not someone I would consider possessing qualities that demand respect.

    Kim is the injured party in this debacle and my guess is that she never expected her own sister to make such a fool of her as she did. As superficial as Camille may be, she is not as egregious as Kyle Richards by a long shot.

    As far as I am concerned, Kyle ranks as “Numero Uno” in the most hated department and that includes Danielle, Teresa, Vicki, and the Salahi’s. They may hover near the top of the totem pole, but Kyle wins this one hands down. Using a vulnerable and damaged human being as your “soccer ball” just for fun is about as low as one can get in seeking the fame that eludes this otherwise talentless, self absorbed monster.

    I’d much rather take my chances with a snake in a basket than to ever consider Kyle Richards “having my back”.

    KYLE RICHARDS: WORST HOUSEWIFE IN THE WORLD!

    • Katie (aka kats2) says:

      I think it’s close between Kyle and Taylor but the sister situation puts Kyle in the lead. At this point it’s easier for me to make a list of the HW’s I can still tolerate, it’s a short list, very short list.

    • Miss Anthrope says:

      ITA.

      It would be bad enough if Kyle had just stuck to berating Kim all by herself, but to sit back and watch her “friend” threaten and attack her is disgusting. And worse still is how Kyle continuously blamed Kim each time that Taylor attacked her.

      A decent human being would have stood up to their friend and told them to STFU or THEY would be “going Oklahoma” on HER ass.

      It is beyond obvious that Kyle is just a status whore just by the way she treats the Hiltons in comparison to how she treats Kim. She actually had the balls to give Issac Mizrahi dirty looks on WWHL after he told Paris to try not to get arrested again. Uh….so you defend your pathetic whore of a niece who has a COCAINE problem, yet you out your sister as an alcoholic on TV while trying to psychically assault her? That makes all the sense in the world….if you’re a disingenuous bitch.

    • RubyNewbie says:

      After having my memory refreshed about what an opportunistic, social climbing, coke-whoring, libertine Faye Resnick was (is?), I have even more of a problem with Kyle. Water seeks its own level, honey.

      And why is Kim’s possible substance abuse issue so much more awful than Faye’s? Faye admitted to cocaine addiction. But Kim’s issue is the worst, darkest most awful secret ever? Lady, pleeeeease.

      *eyeroll*

      Kyle needs help just as much as Kim. She’s disturbed in her own right.

    • Di says:

      I think there are a lot of terrible housewives. It’s hard for me to pick to pick the worst, but I think your assessment of how awful Kyle acts towards her own sister is spot-on Olivia. I can’t count the number of times Kyle whined about her sister not having her back, when it was so clear to me that Kyle was knifing Kim in the back at every single turn. Absolutely disgusting.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      Oh my how I have missed you.

      But I do think Taylor is more loathsome than Kyle.

      I am think Camille also got an ace in her pocket just for the fact that Taylor and Kyle’s treatment of Kim was worse than any pointless, superficial or arrogant to the point of hubris remarks she made.

      I think it was easy to see Camille cash in on the anti-Taylor back lash with her follow up remarks on how Taylor clued her in that they were coming after in in New York. I suspect Taylor didn’t say those exact words, similar to how Kyle never actually said ‘Why would anyone be interested in you without Kelsey?”. Kyle might have thought it, inferred it and maybe even hinted at it but I hardly think she was that tactless. She saves the real go for the throat remarks for her sister.

    • Terry says:

      Oh my goodness! I agree with you a thousand percent. Kyle makes my skin crawl. What she does to her sister is beyond the pale.

      I hate Kyle even more than I hate Taylor or Camille, and here’s why. Taylor and Camille are not originally from Los Angeles and their behavior, though despicable, can be somewhat explained as the reaction of persons unused to swimming with sharks.

      Kyle is an original shark. I put Lisa there too, because although she is not from Los Angeles originally, she is obviously very good at playing.

    • nathania says:

      thanks, I agree. I have been wondering ‘where’s Olivia’ lately because this particular installment of RHO really has some material to analyze.

      This might be the first time in housewife history that a housewife was actually ‘destroyed’ by another. Most of the time, no matter how much they want to blame editing, the women really do themselves in. Danielle’s histrionics quashed whatever sympathy the public might have for her. Jill foghorned her way into hatred from the public. But Kim was the victim of sustained slander by her sister. It’s one thing, though tasteless, to do a whisper campaign among Kyle’s friends about her woes with her sister. It’s a whole other thing to destroy her on national tv. And Kim seems to have forgiven her, I STILL don’t think she sees Kyle for the destructive force that she truly is.

      Kyle is like a political strategist. She will say something unforgivable (think Ann Coulter-type remarks) but then apologize, knowing all the while that the point was just to get the message out, and the apology was pre-planned. Kyle ‘got the message out’ about her sister. She pretty much disgusts me at this point. And even more disgusting is Bravo trying to cling to Kyle as the ‘lead’ on this show, when clearly the public all prefer Lisa VP by a huge margin, probably for the reason that no one has to try to pick sides in a 40 something year old sibling rivalry.

      • Terry says:

        You speak the truth. I agree 1000%. The only point I’d make is that even a whisper campaign is pretty heinous, not just tasteless.

        I just hate Kyle. She is Machiavellian and horrid and self-absorbed and truly horrid to her sister. Kyle is the worst kind of person; I think she’s worse than Camille, worse than Jill Zarin.

        Maybe she and Danielle Staub should be sentenced to live together. Then Danielle can bring her bodyguards for intimidation and Kyle can out Danielle’s dirty secrets. Dante would like this solution, I think.

  3. WindyCityWondering says:

    Lynn you are on the money – a waste of an hour – a few new talking heads and the limo ride home porno past revealed – are we to believe that Camille didn’t do a little google on Faye prior to the dinner? Bravo producer’s cut – a joke that was on the viewers!

  4. kmuellfa says:

    I am still so PO’d that the BH cast has not blogged since the reunion. Cowards, all of them.

  5. WindyCityWondering says:

    Dina’s tweet about “new” New York Housewife – if S4 is so boring why would the most boring housewife of all time be fishing for a spot on RHNY? If Bravo was stupid enough to transfer that nutjob to the NY franchise – I will not watch it – not even reruns!

    • Katie (aka kats2) says:

      Well compared to NJ HW’s the NYC HW’s are fabulous and we all know that delusional Dina thinks she is quite fabulous. Poor Dina, she thought as soon as she left NJ the offers would flow, but she is still the sad HW with the husband who spends little to no time with her.

      • RubyNewbie says:

        Dina is another lie-telling, entitled, overgrown brat. I’m sure she’s puzzled as to why the world has fallen down at her feet yet. I’m sure she thinks it’s Danielle’s fault.

    • floridagirl88 says:

      I was about to say Dina who? I mean is she even relevant anymore?

    • Terry says:

      Dina will never, ever be on RHoNYC. She doesn’t fit in. That Italian business is not New York; it’s pure New Jersey.

      I live in New York City and am appalled by the NYC housewives who, in the end, aspire to be NYC society. They fail miserably, mostly because they are so very, very materialistic and because they show off. That said, the New Jersey people are about ten thousand rungs below the NYC women in every single sense. They are defined by their ethnicity rather than by their talent.
      We call these people the “bridge and tunnel” crowd.

      That said, there are plenty of lovely, wonderful people who live in New Jersey and I know a few of them. They go to NJ mostly because of the space they are able to get vis-a-vis New York, which is necessary when one has children. None of these lovely people would ever go around mangling the English language, thinking that flipping tables is cool, and so forth.

  6. kbinldo says:

    I like how Kyle says Faye is “almost like a sister” to her & then treats her way better than she treats her real sister, Kim. And of course we have to have someone point out that Kim is acting “weird,” so this time, it was Alison who insisted Kim was way too happy at the party to not be on something. And yet, once again, we see everyone else drinking swimming pools of booze, while Kim drinks Coca Cola on the Rocks & somehow from that we’re supposed to feel so sorry for Kyle, having such a lush for a sister. Please.

    • Miss Anthrope says:

      My feeling is that Camille probably said something to Allison about Kim allegedly being a drunk, and Allison being Allison just had to get a dig in. Kim did not appear to be drunk at that dinner party.

      • Crisanna says:

        ITA.

      • Amber...RealWife says:

        I think I’m going to disagree with all that say Allison was tipped off to Kim’s drinking by Camille. The horrible Taylor was quoted many times saying she didn’t know that Kim was struggling with issues. Yet at the reunion she wanted to mention Kim’s drinking as the cause of all their fights. It can’t be both! Either she was drunk during the fight and you knew it, or her sister Kyle “said she was drunk” and you believe it!

        Lisa and Taylor came to Kyle’s defense in order to demonize Kim. To make Kyle the martyr, they spoke of the supposed alcoholism as the cause of the troubles between the sisters, even though the sisters refused to address the comments or situation. So at the end of the season, when Kyle has “outed” her sister as an alcoholic, now EVERY problem Kim ever had is being blamed on her alcoholism, although we rarely saw her drinking. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know you don’t have to look drunk to be an alcoholic, but these women are now changing the story to say Kim was drunk and out of sorts on many occasions. In other words, I don’t believe Kyle, Lisa or Taylor as birds of a feather, really do flock together!

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Why would Camille say anything about Kim to Allison – Camille barely pays attention to Kim and dosen’t even acknowledge her in conversation? IMO, Allison sized up everyone in the room – but her mission from her mistress was very clear – get Kyle and anyone who defends her!

        • Crisanna says:

          Camille probably spoke with Allison about who all was coming before the party and probably mentioned it. I don’t doubt that the intended target was Kyle. However, I just don’t think Allison was all innocent in her comment. I think she wanted to get a dig in at all the ladies. She just had nothing else on Kim. It’s not like Kim was acting all that happy to be there, at least from what we were shown. I would not have assumed she was drinking by her actions. I could see the possibility in the finale, but not this episode.

          • Rabble Rouser says:

            I don’t think Camille said anything to Allison.

            Allison is a fraud and charlatan, who reads people for ‘clues’. She obviously noticed Kim wasn’t drinking booze and asked her questions to try and fish for information from her.

            So that way, she could built a bullshit profile of Kim to later make ‘revelations’ about her.

            It’s about as astute as Kyle’s psychic who knows how how to google and that someone who is on a RH show is involved with conflict with other women.

            • nathania says:

              lol.

              what is scary to me is that the most accurate psychic they have shown was the palm reader who read Kim Zolciak and said she would have another baby in 7 years. that was wild.

      • RubyNewbie says:

        Ahhhh, yes. That’s a good theory.

        But I do think maybe Kim switches back and forth from booze to pills. So she could very well be stoned while not consuming any alcohol in front of the ladies. I still like Kim and I don’t think she needs to be ashamed if she has a substance abuse issue. She shouldn’t allow this coven of unsupportive witches to shame her.

        Adrienne is too good for this crap. She needs to bow out gracefully. Taylor is awful. Kyle is awful. Camille is awful. And, something is off with Lisa. I really think she’s quite the calculating little actress. I can’t find anything online backing up her “police report” against Cedric. Usually, The Smoking Gun or TMZ is all over that kinda stuff. I hate it when people lie. It’s an insult to my common sense! lol

        • Terry says:

          Kim consistently acted with good intentions, said kind things, thanked people for their hospitality, avoided fights, and generally acted like a lady. If she needs anything to get through the day when Kyle consistently treats her so poorly, who can blame her?

          At this point, I am not going to speculate about Kim having a substance abuse issue. It’s her business. She is not hurting anyone else and that, in the housewife universe, is huge. It’s remarkable.

          I’m supporting Kim, however she comes, because she is kind and she behaves well. It’s not appropriate to examine her weaknesses; she has a sister and Taylor doing that, and it’s more than enough.

      • kbinldo says:

        I could see that happening, although Camille seems much more supportive of Kim than her own sister & Kim did tell Camille she couldn’t be friends with her because of Kyle. And just floating this one out there again, the *only* one who thanked Camille for dinner was Kim.

        • housewifeaddict says:

          I have never seen Camille being rude to Kim. Kim mentioned at least once that she told Camille she couldn’t do things with her – because she couldn’t go against Kyle. It seemed like Camille accepted that gracefully. Too bad Kyle didn’t stick up for Kim the same with Taylor.

          • nathania says:

            Camille’s whole campaign vs Kyle began when Camille noticed what a bully Kyle was in regard to Kim. I think Camille sees herself as a permanent victim of some kind and she was sensitive to those remarks, and in one of the early dinner parties she spoke up in defense of Kim when Kyle was trying to put her down. It wasn’t a big dramatic moment but it was definitely the spark that ignited the controversy in New York.

            Interestingly, at the end of the day Camille has come out on top. She redeemed herself, no matter how calculated it might have been, or rehearsed is a better word, and Kyle still came off looking like even more of an asshole at the reunion and lost footage videos.

            I wouldn’t mind seeing Kim come back next season and befriend Camille, I would like to see her have someone on her side.

            I have to wonder at this point if Kyle also is jealous of Kim because Kim is single. She seems threatened by Kim’s appearance at events and overly interested/concerned about her sex life.

            • Terry says:

              I don’t think Kim would befriend Camille. She is loyal to her sister and would stay away just for that reason.

              However, Camille, having four nannies, would not mesh with Kim’s philosophy about family.

  7. Miss Anthrope says:

    I enjoyed the Dinner Party From Hell special. Just the few new tidbits they did include were pretty good.

    I agree about Taylor attacking Kim. I was thinking the same thing about Kyle bitching Kim out (once again) over something Taylor started. In fact, she was actually trying to defend Kyle when Taylor flipped out on her. So all that bs about Kim not having her back is even more bogus than before. Kim TRIED to have her back TWICE and both times she was shut down by Taylor and Kyle failed to defend her. Unbelievable. I sincerely hope that Kyle is mortified by her behavior, and not just because of PR reasons. She should be ashamed that she treated her sister that way and allowed a “friend” of hers to attack her sister over and over again.

    Taylor continues to give interviews stating that she feels awful about fighting with Kim. Bitch, nobody is believing that for a second. We, the viewers, are not stupid. If you felt bad then you would have apologized at the reunion. Instead, you continued to threaten and intimidate her. So no, you don’t genuinely feel awful. You’re just feeling the heat from all of the fans who think you’re a scumbag and a liar. I hope you return next season so that we can watch Lisa and Adrienne call you out on some more lies.

    The issue with Camille is that she is so totally disconnected. Everything she does and says seems totally calculated, as if she’s playing a character. She’s almost completely emotionless. Even when she found out that Kelsey was leaving her for another woman she just kind of…sat there…expressionless. I don’t think that’s due to botox either. Fans can’t relate to her because she barely seems human.

    Those extra scenes of her at the Tonys with Kelsey were sooooo weird. She kept on showering him with those strange robotic compliments and he kept dodging them one after another. She didn’t even have enough self respect to stand up and say, “Listen asshole. I’m only here for YOUR PR purposes. So the least you can do is not be a condescending dick all night”. Who would ever agree to go to something like that with a spouse who just dumped them for someone else? Again, she seems totally disconnected. It’s very strange.

    • spunkymonkey says:

      I agree about Camille. Maybe she’s had too much Prozac or valium or botox…or a combination of all of them contributing to why she doesn’t show or register emotion. Her voice is so monotone and there is no expression on her face. Maybe she’s a Stepford wife??? Hmmm….

    • Brigid A. says:

      Bringing my post over here from yesterday.

      Sorry if this has already been discussed here, but Camille clearly stated in her talking head last night that Taylor had been “providing her a lot of information” over the prior few weeks. I don’t recall that disclosure from the prior dinner episode or I just missed it. Taylor is more than an instigator, she is a liar and a poser. Taylor likely informed Camille that Kim was a lush, thus Allison’s nonsensical remarks to Kim last night about her Cokes. And Taylor clearly started the screaming match with Kim at Camille’s dinner.

      Kyle and Camille were clearly eager to re-start the NY fight. More and more, Kyle has morphed into a bully far worse than Teresa Giudice. If I were Camille, I’d be flanked by my “security detail” too at any dinner with Kyle, especially in my own house. There’s a reason Kim was worried Kyle would fly across the table. Recall the limo scene after Taylor’s b-day party… Kim holding up her hand, telling Kyle to stay away.

      With all the scrutiny over Kim’s drinking that night and EVERY other occasion, once again she remained quiet and poised, even covering her face at one point. Gee, I wonder if anyone was monitoring hothead Kyle’s drinks before or throughout that night….you know, maybe because she “drinks all god-damn day”? Just maybe her rage gets fueled by alchohol? The only time Kim got engaged and raised her voice was in response to Taylor screaming at her before Taylor abruptly ended the dinner.

      The post-dinner limo scenes were stomach-turning, all those adult women (Kyle being the worst) ogling Camille’s naked photos. Kim was fortunate that Kyle dismissed her like a bad child and sent her home alone. Kyle is a horrible sister and a mean, vindictive woman without an ounce of self-control. I cannot stand this woman.

      • nathania says:

        Kyle’s complexion at the party seemed really flushed, I wonder if
        she was drinking or something.

        I never did uppers so i don’t know but I think unless you are around the bend they are alot harder to detect than downers. I think Kim likes her downers but Kim seems to rarely drink in public, most of the time she seems to abstain when they go out

        It’s possible a few or more of these ladies could be on uppers like coke or speed (diet pills, etc). I don’t think they are as easy to detect as over-drinking or something that depresses your reaction time and speech etc. It doesn’t mean they aren’t doing it. It could be Lisa VP that does coke every morning…nothing would surprise me about any of them. Everyone has skeletons in their closets, and these ladies have a hell of a lot bigger closets than most people, so they can hold a lot of skeletons, more than most of us can fit.

    Happy Birhtday Quincy!
    I have gotten you a bottle of Ramona Pinot Grigio, some tunes (Kim Z and the Countess) some linens from Jill Z and of course some healthy treats from Bethenny. So you can look extra special some make up from Gretchen, some cuffs from Lynn C. and also a necklace from Kim Richards. What more could you ask?

    • Katie (aka kats2) says:

      What a lovely HW gift basket you have put together, how creative and thoughtful. You know Lisa has her own wine and champagne would you mind adding those to my gift basket and leave Ramona’s cheap Pinot out? Also you can keep Jill’s linen if you like or maybe just use that as packaging material to cushion the expensive bottles of booze and Bethenny treats. Also please nothing from OC extra pieces from Kim’s collection would be great.

    • quincyil says:

      That is a lovely gift. I am now home for the day and enjoying reading everyone’s thoughts about last night’s show. Harvey called it a “snoozer.”
      He told me to tell you that he thinks Faye Resnick looked good in Playboy.

    Lynn,

    I enjoy your blog every day, but today you are in top form!!

    “Taylor apparently really couldn’t spell friends, so she spelled, “crazy”. Taylor did so well on her spelling bee that someone gave her a set of those big fat red wax lips from the goodie box”

    Best comment EVER! In the spirit of Awards season, I think we should look back on posts and nominate some of the best. Call them the Lynnies, Bloggies, or perhaps, the Snarkys. Gold leaf giant wax lips for the winners!

    Quincy, happy birthday. I don’t post often, but you are truly amazing and I hope you know how much all of us appreciate your insight and the time that you share with us.

  10. klmh says:

    Happy Happy Birthday Q.!

  11. missmi says:

    Am I the only one that thinks that this was fascinating! We now know that Kyle lied to protect Faye and the porno pic viewing party AND Camille admits that Taylor indeed was the one that was filling her in on what the ladies were talking about on the way to New York.

    Kyle is a liar and is so fed up with her sister getting attention that I believe she goes out of her way to shit on her. Even with these two things coming out, I bet she will still defend Faye and Taylor. I will not believe for a second that Kyle and Faye didnt discuss those pictures already. They only agreed to bring it out, because the night ended badly, just as they thought it might. I was also a little creeped out by Faye talking about death by a pearl necklace and worse ways to die. I know she didnt kill Nicole, but its probably best if she doesnt talk about ways to die in a joking matter on TV. Pick any other topic, PLEASE!

    Bravo put the final nail in Taylors coffin. She is done and would be a fool at this point to continue doing the show.

    • Katie (aka kats2) says:

      I agree missmi – I got some closure and answers to things that Andy was too much of a wimp to address during the reunion. Taylor will be back, if Bravo asks her to come back. Like Teresa, Caroline, Jill, Kyle, etc. (too many to name) while they have embarrassed themselves and hurt their families the fame and attention the show delivers is what drives them.

    • klmh says:

      I agree, it was fascinating. Camille finally came out and said Taylor told her the others were going after her. I believe Camille and also believe much of what she said last night.
      I also found it fascinating that Kyle told Camille, not that’s not the way you are, thats the way you’re pretending to be, or something to that effect. I thought Camille showed a lot of restraint when this accusation was thrown at her.
      I hope Kyle can look back at this and make some changes, but I doubt it.

      • missmi says:

        I felt the same way about maybe Kyle could look at the show and realize she is horrible, but it wont happen. Why!? Because I think Kyle is like a spoiled child and is probably in her kitchen throwing plates right now screaming at the top of her lungs that its not fair. She has to put up with Kim and her issues and no one feels sorry for Kyle. Thats why I think she talks shit about her to her friends. She wants people to favor her over Kim when they are with other people. Just like now, everyone is backing up Kim and thinks Kyle is a bully and a bitch. All in the face of Kyle trying to show her in the negative. Kim managed to come out a winner. I would bet money that any friend of Kyles that tried to tell her to be nice to Kim would not be a friend of Kyles anymore.

  12. nancy says:

    I guess I am the only one who likes Kyle. She has a drunk for a sister and that can be hard. Please don’t hate me cause you know ” I’M Beautiful” Old that I am.like coming on 54.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      These women all played their roles and I don’t hate or really like any of the RHBH. These women aren’t really friends and as for the sisters – there is too much history there and it’s between them.

    • spunkymonkey says:

      I like her too. Maybe that will change next season. I think the family is dysfunctional, has substance abuse issues, etc. There seems to be a lot of old, deep resentment going on there. Hopefully therapy will help them.

    • katlg says:

      No you are not, I like Kyle and I honestly don’t think she is worse than any of them, Kim included.
      I think Camille is getting a pass because of her divorce but why, she was nasty and it seemed happy to be so.
      Any who…..I rarely post, just wanted you to know you are not alone.

      • Mimisfbay says:

        I don’t hate her either and I know that the relationships between sisters is very complicated. I sure wouldn’t want a camera following me around with my sisters. That being sad…who really knows anything about these camera hogs. They are performing for us and sometimes they provide a glimpse into reality. When I see shots, like when Michale S was in G’town where they show the cameras and lights…I have an aha moment.

        Who does this? No one that I know would want the scrutiny and the fallout. Just sayin’

    • MK Valle says:

      Nancy, I agree! Having a drunk sibling is very hard and I’m certain the whole cast knew or suspected Kim had a problem. Alcohol has a distinctive odor, even when it’s mixed with raspberry, tomato, lemon juice etc. The only person an alcoholic is fooling is themselves. Spend anytime around one and it’s not hard to see.

    • Nancy says:

      Hi nancy,
      Did you know we share a name, we are both in recovery and we are the exact same age. I’ll be 54 this April. Strange eh?
      Don’t feel bad for defending Kyle. Trust me my mother is an alcoholic so I know how hard it can be. I just don’t think Kyle is a happy person and she is taking it out on her sister. Very sad.

    • MichellefromNY says:

      No, she’s my favorite beverly hills housewife! I think people are just mad that kyle didnt have her sister’s back, but I personally feel that we really cant judge. Every person has issues with their family. I can really relate to kyle. She has a big personality and with that personality comes passion and outlandish reactions. But I like that about her!

    • Austin says:

      I like Kyle, too. She’s probably my favorite housewife on the BH franchise. I don’t get all these haters, but to each their own. I do think Kyle shoots straight and a lot of women don’t like that in other women. I cannot fathom how anyone could say that they dislike Kyle more than Camille. Really? Camille is a total poseur and is a disgusting excuse for a human being.

      For all of those who say that Kyle didn’t have Kim’s back, have you ever thought that if Kim had had her sister’s back in the first place, at the table in NY, this whole quarrel/misunderstanding would have been resolved, right there and then? She could have said, “You know, I was there, and Camille, my sister did not say those things to you.” End of story. But Kim just sat there with her thumb up her hind end.

      Being a caretaker to an alcholic/addict is exhausting and often overwhelming. It does not surprise me that Kyle gets short with Kim at times. I do believe the sisters love each other and will get past this. I hope Kim gets help for her addiction issues and that Kyle goes to alanon.

      As far as Kyle “lying” about being the one whose phone Camille’s porno shots were on instead of Faye’s, I took that as her just taking the rap for her friend. If she hadn’t, the same criticizers would have said she threw Faye under the bus. She can’t win on that one. At any rate, ALL of the women were ogling them and there was no one sitting there going, “Oh, no, this isn’t appropriate”. Why? Because Camille had just made a huge deal at the dinner table out of Faye posing in Playboy for the sole purpose of embarrassing her (didn’t work -people who pose in Playboy generally aren’t embarrassed they posed in Playboy). If I was Faye, with the internet on my phone, I might have pulled that porno right up, too. She didn’t have it “saved” on her phone. Duh. She used her internet browser to find it.

      But as I said, to each their own.

    “bath-eez”

    Bethenny does this all the time with Bryn and her dog (I have also heard Jason and Julie talk this way). And it’s not just on the show, she tweets this crap too.
    It was tolerable in S1 because Bryn entered the scene on the last couple of episodes and I get the baby is cute and everything is new – blah, blah, blah. But if this is a preview of what I will have to tolerate in S2 – No Thank You! I’m out – I can’t do it.

  22. spunkymonkey says:

    I guess I’m the only person left who still likes Kyle. I think there is a lifetime of crap going on between them that we know nothing about. I have two close friends who are sisters and they are awful to one another. They’re both nice but they are always at each other. Always. I didn’t meet them until they were adults, so all I can figure is this has been going on since they were kids. I think we’re always harder on our family members than friends. I come from a very dysfunctional family and had people judge me because I don’t get along with or speak to certain family members, so I’ve learned to not be so judgemental with others when it comes to their family issues. They don’t know the full history about me, and I don’t know the full history about their issues. I have a feeling mommy dearest pitted these two against each other a long time ago. I can just see her comparing one to the other.

    Does anyone else find Kyle’s impression of AD smoking the cigarette hilarious? I had to rewind that I laughed so hard. KNOW THAT!

  23. Olivia says:

    Kyle’s viciousness toward Kim is evident. She proved as much in just about every scene.

    They did not collaborate on exposing Kim’s problems to the world by perhaps illustrating that Kim is in a daily struggle and could be used as a “model” for others experiencing the same. No, she attacked her, exposed her, made a complete fool of her knowing full well that what she said was true. That was the sin.

    What Kyle did was vicious, self serving, and aimed at taking revenge. What they do in private is one thing. But using a national tv program as a platform to shred her own sister to shreds is unforgivable. They have dealt with one another for all their lives and surely must know how to push buttons. Kyle displayed anger in the most odious manner by putting her own sister on the defensive for reasons that revolved around Kyle. Kim standing up to Taylor. As if Taylor were worthy of respect. Kyle did not want to lose face with her new found “friends”.

    Jill had an equal nemesis in Bethenny. Bethenny can fight back. Kim is not in Bethenny’s league and her insecurities were all over the place. She was held responsible for her lack of interest in saggy @ssed Martin. Hell, I can understand that! She was chided for not making herself available to help with a birthday party on the day she moved into a new home. She was castigated for “always being late”. She was advised on camera that her children sought out Kyle’s advice before going to her. One by one a pillar of Kim’s inadequacies were being built for the audience to absorb as Kyle ran around painting herself as a long suffering sister, burdened with the responsibility of poor, dumb, dimwitted Kim.

    Horrible, unnecessary behavior overall. I only hope that Kim has the resolve to tell Kyle to p*ss off. But something tells me that it is Kim who probably takes the first step to heal differences in that relationship; something Kyle depends upon as another excuse to kiss her @ss.

    • Pantry Viewer says:

      Sing it, sister. My contempt for Vile Kyle knows no bounds.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      When kids go to another relative or adult for “advice” it is because they are not being listened to, they are not being encouraged to pursue their dreams/goals/fears and they want the validation they are not getting from their parents. When Kim told Kyle to back her up when it came to her kids it was pretty clear they were not getting the healthy mothering they needed. The fact that Kim wanted a house with a bedroom for each of her children spoke volumes – she doesn’t want her kids to grow up and leave her! I have to give Kyle props for being there for Kim’s kids.

      • error404 says:

        Nonsense. Mom says no, so ask Dad separately. Kids learn this old trick at a very early age. Kim’s kids know they can count on Aunty Kyle to go against their mom, when Kim won’t just give them what they want. If Kim says white, Kyle says black. All parent know that you need to present a united front or it’s game over. If Kyle really does help raise those kids, she does a piss poor job of it. I suspect in truth, she’s just the meddling know it all Aunt.

      • MK Valle says:

        Yes….you are so right

        • MK Valle says:

          I meant yes to Windy City. Error, Kim’s “kids” are adults (with the exception of one). They know their mother is a drunk so they find their motherly advice from the next best thing….Auntie Kyle!

    • missmi says:

      BRAVO, BRAVO!!!!!! Very well said. I also have felt that Kyle competes for the dead mother. When they went to the psychic, Kyle had a lock of hair and ashes. Kim brought a picture and I swear the look on Kyles face was total irritation. You know Im sure she felt either stupid for bringing in “over the top” items, or she was mad at Kim for bringing something when she already “has it covered” .

    • Brigid A. says:

      Ok, here I go again so please forgive the repeat. Most viewers, I’d guess even most posters here, are convinced Kim has dependency issues, either alchohol or whatever. Kim herself has remained silent and did not respond to Andy’s very direct question at the reunion. I don’t care if she’s shooting up heroin as we speak, it is up to KIM to make the announcement, not her sister. No reputable interventionist would advocate what Kyle did to her sister.

      So, the day Kim decides to acknowledge any of these issues, pen her recovery memoirs, or the day she authorizes her physicians or therapists co-announce with her, I’ll believe it. I’m not relying on KYLE’s outing of her sister! Kyle can tell the entire world that she and Mauricio checked Kim into Betty Ford…coincidentally, the same night that Kyle refused to let Kim leave Taylor’s party. I don’t care what Kyle says. She wanted to take her sister down, and her own out of control rage problems give her no credibility.

      Let’s back up to the limo scene following Taylor’s b-day party. Kim may not always be articulate in what she’s trying to say (contributing to a lot of the substance abuse suspicions), but she screamed at Kyle: “Guess who drinks all god-damn day!” This is a VERY SERIOUS accusation but it still flies under the radar because no one takes Kim seriously. That is when Kyle exited that limo so fast she barely had time to cover her butt with that stupid spandex dress.

      • Di says:

        Great points Brigid, I felt the same way as you did watching the finale. I thought it was very telling that Kyle was the “family” that “checked” Kim into rehab the night of the finale and Kim checked herself out a week later. Regardless of whether Kim has a problem with alcoholism, Kyle was way out of line that night from start to finish. Kyle has serious rage and control issues, probably among others.

        • Dixie says:

          Agreed. Something I don’t understand is how Bravo could state Kim went to rehab. Bravo is Kim’s employer; rehab is considered medical treatment. Isn’t it a HIPPA violation for an employer to release medical information?

    • Di says:

      Amen! So true Olivia!

  24. Golden Girl says:

    As far as Mauricio having an affair with the nanny I don’t know, but I remember Kyle saying they had a nanny and she left in the middle of the night. So if her saying that they don’t have a nanny is proof that Mauricio did not have an affair how about when they did have a nanny?

    • spunkymonkey says:

      I have a feeling if they did have a housekeeper/nanny/live-in she probably wasn’t anyone Mauricio would have an affair with. I’m sure Kyle only hires obese, wart covered, bearded women. LOL

      • Amber...RealWife says:

        Mo’Nique once said she called a cleaning agency and they kept sending attractive women. She refused saying “I have a husband, I hired the one with no teeth, 2 strands of hair and Momma, when I grab my purse to leave, she better grab hers too!

    • kbinldo says:

      It was the live-in maid that left in the middle of the night. Not sure why Kyle needs both a day maid & a live-in.

      • Katie (aka kats2) says:

        Yes let’s talk about that, I live in housekeeper? She also has an assistant. Why?

        • Katie (aka kats2) says:

          A not I

        • kbinldo says:

          Well, to be fair, a lot of the women I know have maids (including myself), but only those who can really afford it (& need it) have live-ins. I don’t see how Kyle “needs” a live-in, plus a day maid, plus an assistant, unless they’re all “status” employees.

          • Rabble Rouser says:

            There is NO WAY I believe that she required a live in and a day maid for a house her size. Spelling Manor might be one thing but please….that house needs to be cleaned 8 hours a day 6 days a week.

            The live in was probably a mommy’s little helper- light house keeping (until the once a week lady comes for the deep cleaning) running errands and of course babysitting.

    • Katie (aka kats2) says:

      All I can go by is what I watched and any additional information out there that helps to piece things together. With that said. . .

      I don’t think Mauricio is a cheater or having an affair. There is no proof of it or anything I saw on the show that deserves giving him that label.

      I also don’t know if Kim is an Alcoholic or how bad her substance abuse really is. I don’t know if she is recovering alcoholic or in the process of getting help or what the situation is – so I’m not going to label Kim either.

      I never saw Kim drink alcohol or behave drunk on the show. I never saw any behavior on camera of Kim that warranted the response from her sister Kyle. I watched Kyle treat Kim very badly and allowed others (Lisa and Taylor) to stick their nose in. I could careless what Lisa and Taylor think on this topic it means nothing, they have no credibility and should have been shut down by Kyle and Kim as soon as they butted in or started to use Kim as the excuse for all things wrong on BH HW’s.

      Yes the sisters have history, all families have history. That is no excuse for any of the crap we watched between these sisters. It’s just not, if they can’t handle it don’t go on a reality show. Pick one family or fame.

      What confirmed my dislike for Kyle for me is her temper. And at first I thought, Ok these sisters don’t get along it’s ugly maybe there is something there, but Kyle showed the same rage against Camille. Kyle took that whole NY dinner to a crazy name calling head cocking rage. It showed me that it’s not just her sister and family history – Kyle has some issues with her temper. She even admitted she flies off the handle. Next you add to it Kyle on camera in full pounce mode after her sister Kim – She even said she wishes she could take it back. Even is you take Kim completely out of the equation Kyle for me is still not looking good.

      • klmh says:

        Im not disputing you, but why do you think she went to Betty Ford for a week and then checked herself out, for a vacation?

        • Di says:

          She was “checked-in” by a raging Kyle the night the finale was filmed. Kim has problems standing up for herself and Kyle is a scary bitch who swung at her repeatedly in a rage that very same night. I’m not saying Kim DOESN’T have a problem, but Kyle forcing her to check in that night does not prove anything to me other than the fact that Kyle is a scary controlling rage-filled bitch.

          • Di says:

            Also, Kyle made it perfectly clear that Mauricio and she contribute to Kim financially out of necessity. Kim cannot support herself in her new rental house without their assistance. I think that was used as a threat to influence Kim to enter rehab too. Kyle has crazy scary issues imho–just like Big Kathy was rumored to have. Both Kim and Kyle agreed at the reunion that Kyle was like her mother, and I don’t think that’s a good thing. 🙂

            • klmh says:

              Well, since I wasn’t a fly on the wall, I have to assume that Kim either allowed herself, or put herself in Betty Ford. She could leave when she wanted.
              With Kim’s history along with others in the cast as well as her sister that saw a problem, that says it all to me.

              • Di says:

                I think many in this cast have less than admirable motives, and do not have Kim’s best interests at heart. I believe most of the cast like to have Kim as the drunk scapegoat.

                Again, I’m not saying that Kim does not have a drinking problem. I do however think that “Kim is a drunk” is a convenient excuse for Taylor’s and Kyle’s bad behavior though. It appears to me that Lisa is a good friend trying to make Kyle look better since that’s where her allegiance lies. I didn’t hear Camille or Adrienne say anything about Kim having a drinking problem, but I may have missed it.

          • klmh says:

            Its voluntary. Kyle also mentions her sister can handle herself.

          • klmh says:

            First sentence: she was checked in by a raging Kyle. Where did you read this?
            2nd sentence, I did not see her swing at her sister. I saw her trying to control her and the situation that she felt had gotten out of hand.
            Third sentence: You are assuming Kyle forced her into rehab. Where did you read this?
            I agree, Kyle is a crass bully to her sister, but your story is built around assumptions.

              • klmh says:

                Of course the family is upset that this was played out on film. This does not support your assumptions.

                • Di says:

                  First sentence of the story that I linked above is, “Kyle Richards and husband Mauricio Umansky reportedly checked Kim Richards into rehab for her alcoholism the night of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season finale.”

                  You asked where I read this, and I linked it. What exactly do you want from me? I am not making assumptions, I am watching the show and reading articles. So quit telling me I am making assumption when I am clearly backing up what I am saying with evidence.

            • Di says:

              When I watched the finale I saw Kyle physically go after Kim. Luckily Adrienne stopped her.

            • Di says:

              Sorry for the multiple posts, but I got to thinking, how was Kim out of hand that night and what assumptions are you making? I’m not trying to be inflammatory. Let me explain what I saw.

              I saw no footage of Kim out-of-control physically. I (and the Bravo producers promoting the episode) saw a physical altercation though. Kyle instructed everyone to stop Kim from leaving the party. Strange, because I would’ve left too if I were in Kim’s position being yelled at by Taylor and having Kyle jump in with the other ladies joining in. It appeared to me like ganging-up. I would’ve felt uneasy and wanted to leave, totally natural imho, not out of control on Kim’s part. Kim was calmly sitting in the limo speaking to a very empathetic Adrienne while Martin was present, nothing out of control there from what I saw, merely crying and sad, feeling misunderstood.

              Kyle then followed Kim into the limo and began arguing with her. Kim was sitting at the back of the limo at all times during the physical altercation. Kyle JUMPED out of her seat in the limo, over Martin toward Kim swinging her arms at her, only to be stopped by Adrienne, which by the way only happened after Kim mentioned Kyle’s own drinking all day and stealing her f’n house. So how exactly was Kyle trying to control an out of hand Kim? I truly think it was Kyle who was out of hand and out of control that evening.

              I understand dealing with a drunk PITA family member. I buried an alcoholic mother 3 years ago. However, during my multiple interventions with her I never, ever physically attacked her. Kyle must take responsibility for her own actions. Kim can be drunk, but it doesn’t give Kyle a pass to be an animal. Kyle has control and rage issues, that I can tell by watching the footage, making no assumptions whatsoever.

              • klmh says:

                Please read my first post on this matter. Kim has a history of alcohol abuse. Kyle and her friends are aware that alcohol is a problem and Lisa has mentioned in on occasion. Kim went into a rehab center for a week. I can’t explain it any better than the facts I have given you, and these are facts.

              • Tuzentswurth says:

                Kyle had to be physically restrained by Martin, he was holding her arms while she was struggling to fly into Kim….and also Kyle reacted after Kim told Kyle she was a phony.

      • Damnert says:

        If I took a drink for every time this season that Kyle used with utter resentment “I promised my dead Mother, I’d take care of her” I’d have drinking problems too.

        She’s like watching pictionary with the word being MARTYR….

    • twoile says:

      I would offer that the Housekeeper left in the middle of the night & I suspect she did b/c the filming may have spooked her……private person wishing 2 remain so. Cal/green card quest poss? or maybe just wishing to remain anon 4 a variety of very good reasons…..domestic abuse etc.

      • Kellita says:

        I was wondering also if she was an illegal, and it had to do with filming. Good call!

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          I doubt it, I’m right here in SoCal and the mantra for many illegal aliens is “Undocumented and Unafraid”. While some might be reluctant to contact the police/ sheriff when they are the victims of crime because they feel vulnerable when dealing with law enforcement agencies, many are not other wise intimated;especially in a sanctuary city.

          It’s just as likely the live in (who could just as easily be a legal resident or a USC) was a wanted fugitive.

          Or maybe she just got tired of Kyle’s shit and was tired of watching her ‘fly across the table’.

            Just to make this post relevant, I hate Kyle ! Even if Kim did have issues she treated her horribly. I found the limo scene very difficult to watch. Being Italian our families are very loyal, even if we thought terrible things about another it would be carried out in private. Maybe mother caroline manzo can start mediating these sisters.

          • Katie (aka kats2) says:

            Jenn was a nasty blogger, from what I remember she got really mean. I guess she is one of a couple people who are really taking things to a new low and using social media to attack people. If you’re on twitter it’s getting really nasty, like the stuff you hear happening to kids. But these are adults whop are just attacking. Jenn was one of them and now she got arrested and is somehow caught up or was helping Dina with her charity in chicago???

            • OneMoreInBoston says:

              She was arrested back in 2006. She was forced to resign her position at her church in 2008.

              I ***believe*** that hse is heading up Dina Manzo’s Project Ladybug chapter in Chicago?

              Jen is going to court on charges of grand larceny theft and fraud on Tuesday.

              poor Dina. I hope Jenn didn’t rip off her charity for too much.

              Guess Dina doesn’t have a vetting policy in place.

    someone said that when a child goes to another adult for advice it is because they are not getting the guidance, attention or validation from their parents – I don’t know about that – it might occur in some situations but it is not across the board – my daughter and her twin daughters live with my husband and I – long story and I will tell it one day, but not now – many times the twins have come to me or to my husband for advice or to ask about something – but 9 times out of 10 it is because they are hoping for a different outcome than they got with their Mom -just because kids seek out others’ points of view is not verification that the parents are not giving them all that they need – and I quite like the idea of each of them having their own room – this way they all have their own space, their own little corner of the world to do with as they please -my sister is my best friend – she knows me better than anyone – to have a sibling and not have that kind of bond must be such a hard thing – my heart goes out to Kim and to Kyle – they are both losing something that could have been quite strong, something that would have lifted them up when all around them were pulling them down – Kim is the weaker one, for whatever the reason, and it is shameful that Kyle is so insecure that she cannot see past herself to reach out and hold on to Kim – to let her insecurity and her fear outweigh the love she has for her sister is truly heartbreaking – they both need counseling – that and having Taylor dropped off the face of the earth of course……

    • Katie (aka kats2) says:

      @shramrocblonde ITA!!!!

      In my family when my sister’s kids come to me (Aunt Katie) it’s because they want something and their parents (my bros and sis) are not giving in and it’s usually for a very good reason. It has nothing to do with them not having good parents AT ALL. It’s just kids of all ages trying to get what they want.

      So as the Aunt I have learned that you always respect the parents because they are the parents and while you have an opinion and can perhaps help. You are not the authority and YOU NEVER discuss it in front of the kids. Or side against the parents in front of the kids.

      That scene with Kyle and Kim at the spa pissed me off, Kyle broke all the rules in my book.

        Zen Jen. She claimed she left her husband yesterday after he took all of her CC and that she had only $8 in her pocket. So her followers started to donate to her PayPal account to help her out because she was insinuating if not flat out saying I’m broke- help me. She was claiming that she was going into hiding because she was having so much trouble with her husband.

        She allegedly stole 20K from her job at New York and Co. in 2008 and when she got a new job @ her church she was forced to resign.

        She has a court date on Tuesday for “Issue or deliver forged documents” and “theft-unauthorized control with intent – $300 < $10,000".

        Even though she has been really cruel to Lynn on twitter and I really can't stand her, I am not enjoying this poor sad woman's downfall one bit. It's like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

    Oh wait. Sorry, that’s Kyle. Nevermind.

  36. OneMoreInBoston says:

    You know what-now I’m getting really really MAD! This crazy professional blogger posted last night? gggrrrrr….

    “One for the Money…Two for the Show…Three to get Ready…Four Let’s Go.

    I just wanted to take a minute and update everyone on what’s happening…
    After I posted last night, things went from bad to worse, and it’s time for me to take my kids and leave this mess. This will be the fourth time. The last time I left, he burned everything I owned. I stayed with my kids in a shelter for two weeks, while starting a new job and eventually was able to get my own house, car, and I could be free of this mess.

    It didn’t help. No amount of court orders helped. He eventually became such a handful with harassing my bosses, telling outrageous lies about me (like I had slept with the big boss to get the job and he was notifying the media) and causing so much embarrassment to me and my employers, I resigned. Today, looking back, I would have fought him tooth and nail every step of the way, but I have an overwhelming fear of him and the need to pacify this problem he has.

    So now here we go, Deja Vu. Same outbursts. Same delusional and paranoid accusations. I fucked someone for this new job, blah, blah, blah. There was some pretty insane nonsense throughout the entire night and morning. I woke up dreading the next two days before he left on his trip. The battery to the car has been removed so I can’t leave…so for someone that hates me so much, he sure does want to hold me hostage.

    He came home for lunch a few minutes ago, threw my mail directly in my face, saw the packed duffel bag, and proceeded to tell me that if I leave, he’ll throw everything of mine in the street.

    Just like last time. He was arrested the last time too…didn’t make enough of a point.

    But I’m not scared anymore. Let him. I kind of giggled a bit when he got mad about the duffel bags, because he burned the last two sets of luggage I had the last time. So I’ll just inventory what is the most valuable to me, at let him throw a fit when I go…it’s just stuff. I replaced it all the last time, except all of my father’s things he burned…

    I also want to take a moment to thank you ALL for the generous outpouring of support you’ve given me. Especially those who have been through this the three times before, and the ones who are just my readers wanting to help. I appreciate all of the help being offered, places to stay, money, etc.

    Please do not feel insulted if I’m turning down your offer to help. I just don’t want to make it feel like I’m trying to capitalize on a bad time in my life or anything like that. There is an old “donate now” Paypal button over in the right margin of this blog, that was mostly a joke about something else, and that’s the “Live the Dream” fund. So if you insist on wanting to help financially, you can do that rather than have me insult you by refusing.

    I just want to be clear that I am NOT asking anyone for money or anything else. I know what it’s like to want to help a friend in need that is stupidly stubborn. And one of my bad traits of many is to be stupidly stubborn.The next few weeks, will be very lean for me and the kids, if he does what he’s done in the past we could very well be starting over with only the clothes on our backs.But prayer works, and with all of you praying for me, it’ll be ok.
    I’ll update again soon…hopefully from my hotel room. I am honored, touched, and humbled by all of you reaching out. You guys are making me brave, and ready to be the badass I am, and take my life back. ”

    What a F*CKING CON ARTIST!!!!

    Meanwhile there are women who are legit in need of help and this crap is going to just make people afraid to help them out.

    The whole thing is a SHAM because she’s going to JAIL Court on Tuesday!

          I agree and when one of her goons came after me for defending Lynn, they had the balls to say that Lynn was charging $50 to us for keychains and that the disabled woman gave Lynn her last money. (This part was a long time ago. back when she called Lynn and RCH “Hobby bloggers”) but it resurfaced this morning and there I was argueing with a nut job. Long before that incedent happened “hobby blog gate” JS told me that my responses to her blog were too nasty to post but if I wanted to make a donation, she might see her way to get them posted. Yeah, that would never happen. I wouldn’t give her a dime and even told her I was on disability on a very fixed income. My comments were meant for her anyway. I just didn’t like her or agree with anything she said.

    I enjoyed Bravo “Paybacks are a bitch, and so are you!” hour long special last night.

    1. All future people who appear on Bravo be warned. Should you not like how they edited you and say so publicly, they will air an hour long special making sure you look 100x worse that you previously did. Ladies, do not fuck with the queen! Andy Cohen will make you pay.

    Somewhere in Pheonix, Allison Du Bois is sitting up past midnight, sharing a bottle at her kitchen table with Lizzy Borden, Mary Todd Lincoln and Eddie Sedgwick, talking about what heels men are, how women will screw you over, and how the media will eat you alive just for sport. We’re all alone in this world. Born alone, and die alone. Topper?

    2. Ladies, no matter what your PR people tell you DO NOT lie in interviews or during the reunion. Bravo has endless footage and they will air proof of your lies during prime time, just to show you who’s boss. Somewhere in Bel Air, Shana Hughes is pacing nervously, leaving Kyle Richards yet another voice mail. She desperately needs to talk! Why is she being blamed for everything? She was just following orders. She just wanted to belong. Somewhere in Beverly Hills, Kyle and Lisa are sharing a bottle of Rose, but not touching. Theirs is a cosmic connection. Kyle’s phone rings; “Ugh. It’s Taylor.” she signs, rolling her eyes and pushes the tiny button marked “reject”.

    I am from the old school – where family is first and you protect your family. My brother had a drinking problem and I can understand Kyle’s frustation with Kim but I would never treat any family member the way Kyle treats Kim. It seems to me that Kyle wanted Kim on the show so she could gang up on her with the help of her friends. Kyle should have stood up for her sister not Taylor.

      Okay….confused here. Having an Irish Catholic Father, and a Mother who was a Palestinian Jew I had a very confused religious upbringing.

      I didn’t think you could get an annulment unless it came down from specific powers of the Catholic Church if you have kids. And I certainly have never heard of a judge letting that slide.

      Someone with more religious historical reference than I have, can you fill me in? Maybe not his kids?

        In Illinois there are four reasons for getting a marriage annulled:

        •One of the parties to the marriage didn’t have the capacity to consent to the marriage because she or he suffered a mental disability, was under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time, or entered into the marriage by force, duress or fraud.
        •One of the parties is not capable of sexual intercourse and at the time of marriage this was not known to the person asking to have the marriage annulled.
        •One of the parties is less than 18 years old and did not have the consent of his or her parents or guardians, or judicial approval.
        •The marriage was prohibited (not allowed) by law.

    This is taken from a PUBLIC DOCUMENT:

    “Bloomingdale, IL —

    Officials at St. Isidore’s Catholic Church in Bloomingdale said a woman who was employed by the church as a fundraiser resigned Tuesday after it was discovered she had a pending felony court case in Lake County where she is accused of stealing thousands of dollars from a previous employer.

    While church officials said they were aware of pending divorce cases against her that came up during a previous background check, they did not know she faces a felony theft charge.

    Jennifer Guldbransen-Sale, 29, who was hired by the parish last summer, is charged with felony theft between $10,000 and $100,000, according to the Lake County circuit court clerk’s office.

    The charges stem from a November 2005, arrest, when Guldbransen-Sale allegedly stole $20,000 in funds from New York and Co., a clothing store she worked for in Vernon Hills at the time, according to court records.
    Timeline

    Nov. 30, 2005: Jennifer Guldbransen-Sale is arrested and charged with felony theft out of Lake County.

    Nov. 7, 2006: An arrest warrant is issued from the Lake County Sheriff’s Office after Guldbransen-Sale fails to appear in court on the felony charge.

    July 10, 2008: Guldbransen-Sale is taken into custody on that warrant in Lisle.

    Aug. 2008: She is hired by St. Isidore’s Catholic Church in Bloomingdale as stewardship/development director for the parish.

    Dec. 16, 2008: Church officials said Guldbransen-Sale resigns after being confronted on the felony case.

    She was expected in court Dec. 17 for a pre-trial hearing on the felony charge, according to the office.

    Michael Hatt, director of communications for St. Isidore’s Church, said Guldbransen-Sale had been hired full time by the church in August as stewardship/development director, where she mainly worked in fundraising and strategic planning for the parish. Hatt said she did not handle any money in her position with the church.

    She has not been accused of any wrongdoing while employed at St. Isidore’s.

    The parish office of stewardship/development and the office of finance are separate and the stewardship/development director has no access to any funds in that position, Hatt said.

    Hatt said church officials confronted her about the case on Tuesday after the court case was uncovered, and Guldbransen-Sale volunteered to resign from her position.

    Hatt also said Guldbransen-Sale was subjected to a background and fingerprint check when she was hired by the church, as anyone taking a job with the parish would be, based on guidelines set by the Diocese of Joliet. He indicated several cases came up in both Lake and DuPage counties during the process, and Guldbransen-Sale indicated at the time they were related to divorce proceedings and misuse of credit card accusations from an estranged husband.

    Guldbransen-Sale could not be reached for comment.”

    Camille Grammer just announced live on ‘Showbiz Tonight’ that she is joining the show. It is on HLN, part of CNN. Her first assignment will be interviewing stars on the Red Carpet for the Oscars.

For the longest time after that if she’d tell me something and I didn’t believe it, she’s say….go look it up miss smarty pants and we’d laugh.

But that’s just me. As long as stuff is generally correct and not just all over the place, I don’t really care. I get what they are saying. *kanye shrug*

  49. PJ says:

    Where can you start with these crazy people? First of all Allison–I didn’t listen to everything she said, I fast forwarded through any part where she was “reading” or telling her version of the future or what dead people supposedly think. I don’t think physics are harmless, and I don’t believe anyone can see the future or communicate with dead people. I wouldn’t want to be in the same room with her.

    That being said Faye is another one I wouldn’t care to be around. Faye started the fighting by calling Camille a liar. Who was Faye to do that? Faye acts like she is some kind of queen or something. According to Faye girlfriends tell one another things so therefore Camille had to have told Allison about NY, and if Camille said she didn’t say anything then Camille was lying. Ok Faye then you had to have told Kyle about the pictures on your phone, and that whole thing WAS a setup. The ride to Camille’s house was a set up for the cameras and the ride home was a setup. Faye had every intention of showing those pictures before she ever set foot in Camille’s house. Nothing Camille said or did make any difference. I have to agree with everything Camille said about Faye. Faye had the nerve to say these things don’t happen in Beverly Hills, yet Faye made sure they happened here. As for Faye no thank you, any air time with Faye is too much.

    Camille– I believe her. I think that Kyle said something offensive to her in NY. I don’t know what it was but something was said. I think Camille was right about the dinner party being a set up by Faye and Kyle. I also think Faye was fake when she greeted Camille; Faye came looking to do battle. I don’t think Allison was part of a set up as it looked like Allison didn’t really get going until after Faye and Kyle were rude to Camille. When Camille greeted her guests she seemed very sincere to me so I think she would have liked for things to turn out well, but Kyle and Faye weren’t having any of that.

    Kyle–I have no use for her at all.

    Taylor–Same thing. Taylor started a lot, if not all, of the drama that went down this season and refuses to own it.

    • PJ says:

      Sorry..psychic. I really need to spell check.

    • error404 says:

      how can you think that dinner was anything but a set up? Right from the moment Camille told Taylor she was inviting her friend who’s a belidgerant drunk, I knew it was trouble. And Taylor of course went right back to tattle to Kyle, so Kyle knew to bring back up in the form of the morally corrupt Faye Resnick. Both gals went in there guns ablazing.

      Before the guests even arrived, there was the toast to “new friends who will soon be old friends”. Ew. Then all of Allison’s weird “let’s be bad on girls’ night” talk set a very icky tone. Not 5 minutes into the night and all of the other women were visibly squirming in their seats feeling uncomfortable.

      More Camille double talk… she invited Allison for “interesting conversation”, but having made a big point of letting everyone know she was a famous psychic, she then got mad anytime anyone asked Allison about being a psychic, saying she was off the clock. Well, what was the “interesting conversation” suppose to be about then? Does Alison also specialize in hand painted victorian china?

      But everything was just kinda wobbling along awkwardly until Camille suddenly just attacked Faye. Fine, she doesn’t like Faye. I don’t like Faye either, but damn girl… for someone who is constantly claiming to be attacked, Camille really loves to throw down! In what parallel universe is it OK for the host to suddenly turn to a guest and go “So who are you?” Rude but forgivable. But to follow it up by going “Oh yeah! I remember now, You posed nude for money!” It’s just inexcusable. Kyle and Faye may have taken the bait and brawled like drunken sailors on shore leave, but Camille started it. She got what she asked for. Just like Kyle pushed and pushed until she got the rude “reading” she begged for. Who in their right mind asks the drunk rude friend of their enemy for a reading? No one except someone looking for a fight.

      But Bravo loves to hate Camille. Every time someone said something really really OTT rude, the camera cut to the hostess giggling like a mischevious child. She did everything but put bugs under their plates and laugh when they screamed. It was utter chaos, and Camille was lapping it up like a bratty child.

      • PJ says:

        You make some good points and I understand yopur point of view, but we will have to agree to disagree on some points. Having Allison there was inexcusable at best. Having Allison within 100 yards of anyone is inexcusable, in my book. However, did you not see the hypocrisy dripping off Kyle and Faye? Good grief they were oozing it. Faye had ALREADY looked up everything about Camille’s past to use against her. Yet Faye pretends to be offended that Camille dares to mention that she was in Playboy. Actually Camille didn’t say anything mean, she said Faye looked good. I’m sure Faye is not opposed to talking about posing in Playboy she just wanted to find something to be mad at Camille about, to justify her own mean spirited behavior. The way I saw things Faye and Kyle went after Camille before anyone went after them. If I’m deciding who is worse I say Kyle and Faye. No normal person goes to someone’s house and acts like that. What happened to manners? Instead of sitting back like she’s some innocent queen why didn’t Faye just say yes I posed in Playboy and I’m glad you thought I looked good? Faye knew what she was going to do on the way home. At least Camille didn’t pass around pictures of Faye at the dinner table, or after. Then in the talking head interview Faye said that Camille is sick, now where did Faye get that from? Who the heck is Faye? Don’t you think that the things Kyle and Faye did and said were deliberately designed to smear Camille? Remember Kyle is an actress and knows how to play the game. Even Kyle’s pretense of innocence when she looked at the pictures, please tell me you don’t think she was really surprised. She was acting. I mean girlfriends tell each other everything remember. I’m sorry I’m afraid I was totally disgusted by Faye and Kyle and I think Camille came off a lot better.

        • PJ says:

          your………where is my spell check!!!!!?

          • quincyil says:

            Camille can’t say that she planned the attack because it makes her look “Macheiavellic.” She made comments when picking out her dress and before the ladies arrived. She chose someone known to attack when intoxicated and then made sure the attacker was intoxicated. That takes as much planning as sitting with the house manager and planning the menu.

            • PJ says:

              She didn’t force the booze down anyone’s throat. People are responsible for their own actions. Is Camille is more Machiavellian in her actions than Kyle and Faye…………………I don’t think so.

              • Margo says:

                I disagree, respectfully.

                You can’t be responsible to a point, but when you serve soup bowl sized cocktails, you’re can’t feign innocence with much credibility especially after admitting beforehand that you know her behavior when she drinks.

      • Di says:

        That’s exactly how I saw it too Error. I am not a fan of Kyle’s at all, but Camille set this dinner party up, knowing Allison hits below the belt when she drinks. Coincidence she served alcohol in gigantic fishbowls? Come on. She brought her mean friend to help her get back at Kyle, and felt really tough going after Faye. Camille started it, and then nearly everyone there got into the action, but Camille’s setup couldn’t have been more clear to me by her comments and her actions leading up to her first attack on Faye–oh I know where I know you from, your naked spread, hahaha—puleease. Glass houses Camille. She got exactly what she asked for that night.

      Q

  54. Katie (aka kats2) says:

    All this Jenn stuff today is crazy. What I don’t remember and I’ve been gone awhile is how did this all start with Jenn and Lynn? I remember reading Jenn’s blog and recall it started off nice enough but it got ugly and I know she was making jabs at Lynn and people here. What was the catalyst?

    • HD says:

      I don’t know the who, what, where or why but I am sure is some underlying jealousy is involved.

    • Adgirl says:

      Just a wild guess: When Lynn met Alex & Simon in person last year during their book tour? Lynn had a nice warm human interaction (including photos) with cast members which eclipsed Jenn’s blog.
      I don’t remember if Lynn hosted a meet and greet in Chicago but there was a party involved.
      Also, Lynn has a few high profile readers on this blog.

      Whatever it was, apparently in Jenn’s universe SHE is supposed to be the #1 RH blogger on-her-way-to-fame (and she owns Chicago too boot).

      How dare Lynn have a better blog, more traffic and enjoy frequent interactions with the cast?

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        That was a couple of days of infamy! All the haters came out to play, even the little furry one…..I felt bad for RCH having her blog hijacked by the craziest crazies. Sadly, ZenillaJen will likely not be fullfilling her professional blogging duties….from the big house where internet usage is restricted and monitored!

        • Katie (aka kats2) says:

          Little furry ones? HA!

          I don’t think Jenn is in jail st this time. I think that stuff that came out today was from the past when she was arrested? BUT I’m still catching up on the whole drama today. So I could be wrong.

    • Hi all! I think I need to discuss what happened today with a therapist. Lol

      Honestly, I don’t even know how all this started. For me personally it started with the blog klhm posted. I never had a problem with her. She started with me out of nowhere.
      IMO I think it all really started because Jenn is jealous. Her comment about “hobby bloggers getting all the hits and taking hits away from people who do it for a living” says it all to me. Her blog gets, like, no hits. And like 3 comments on a good day. Lynn gets a comment a minute and JS thinks for some reason that if Lynn weren’t here, all you guys would be over posting on her blog instead. Lynn used to post links to Jenn’s blog links, so she knows how many hits she was getting from Lynn.
      This is what I think it all boils down to: Plain old fashioned jealousy.
      So I really think all this shit starts in JS’s head and then blows up online.

      But the shit from last night… OMG.. that’s just on another level. I don’t even know what to say about all that.
      Was she really being abused?
      Did she make the whole thing up?
      Was she trying to benefit from a bad situation?
      Was there even a situation at all?
      She’s divorced, so who is the man she was talking about?
      The ex? A boyfriend?

      Like I said… I need a therapist to help me sort through all this. Lol.
      Looks like we have a real life Taylor Armstrong on our hands here.

      I told hubby what was going on and I said “Can you believe it??” He was like “Yeah.. well people online are scammers. Oh well.” Like it’s common knowledge and I shouldn’t be surprised. Well, I guess it is common knowledge that people pull scams…. idk.
      I though JS was a little “off”, I didn’t think she would use abuse to try to scam money out of people.
      I really hope that’s not what she did… but it sure as hell looks like that right now.

            the lesson here: “Don’t piss off the Hobby bloggers” I saw this on twitter & had to laugh!

      • here's the thing says:

        Jenn posted last year that she had bipolar. I believe she’s in the deep throes of a manic episode. She needs to get help.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          I have seen that post. Others have also pointed that out.

          I guess I am torn about her. If she doesn’t get some help or some meds adjusted she’s going to either hurt someone else or end up in deep deep trouble.

          Or she’s a sociopath.

          • here's the thing says:

            There were also people who said they found other court records for her. Her and her husband (ex?) have been going back and forth like this for ages. I believe the abuse is real, but there is a lot more that is not being said online.

            Who I truly feel for are her children, stuck in the middle.

        • Yes bipolar, lupus….
          I don’t know what to believe anymore.
          Either she is sick, or she is just a serious con artist.
          I don’t know…

          • Kat says:

            Seriously ill and a serious con artist?
            Her blogs are carefully worded and then deleted.
            Guess that is the sign of a professional… BSer.

          • Debbie says:

            In my opinion, she is a con artist. She has had her goons come after me on twitter only because I defended Lynn. This has happened many times and it dates back to right after “hobby blog-gate”

  55. Mookies1mom says:

    “I know where my husband is and where he is at all times.” Kyle stated this in a interview that I read from one of the links provided above. (Sorry, I can’t remember which one right off hand. Plus, I have not watched the full episode yet.) But to me that sounds insecure. While I think her hubby is cute, he appears to be totally smitten with her from what I have seen. My hubby and I have been together for almost 25 years. I have always trusted my husband but it doesn’t sound like Kyle trusts her husband. I don’t know where my hubby is every second but I am secure enough in our relationship to know that I’m ok with that. Plus, the way she pulled that woman off of him at the White Party. I would not have been pleased either. But I would not have made as big of scene either. (Maurcico [however you spell his name] seemed to be uncomfortable with this woman hanging on him. He had that look in his eyes that screamed “Help me” but jeeze he is a grown man!) If I had been in that situation I would have simply pulled her off my husband and told her to leave. No need to scream, especially in front of her daughter. Seems like she doesn’t trust him all that much.

      ITA That line of her saying she always knows where he’s at, is really telling. She knows he works, and I guess, goes to the gym, golfing, shopping etc. How does she “always” know where he is at, and he’s a realtor to boot? They travel extensively, even driving people in their cars. And most often when someone is married to a tyrant, who monitors them, they cheat on the job. That’s the one place they are supposed to be.

      • Brigid A. says:

        I wonder if Mauricio knows that Kyle has eyes in the back of her head and also has this amazing ability to track his every move. She made so many rambling, off the wall comments in that NY Mag article. She talks to Paris all the time about how hard it is to be famous. Oh, and listen up everyone…Kyle is starting up her own handbag line!!!

    • jillz68 says:

      I think someone who got that freaked out by another woman (a drunk woman at that who was probably sporting some booze goggles) trying to grab onto their husband is fairly insecure (now if M was grabbing her back, then there might be trouble!). If that had happened to Mister Jillz68, after I got done laughing hysterically at the scene, I would have quietly steered that woman away from my husband and back to her friends and suggest that they take her home to sleep it off. No need to make a scene.

      I love my husband and have been with him almost 21 years. I know he finds other women attractive just like I find other men attractive. He DOES have eyeballs!

      I also think that Kim gets clutzy when she is nervous like when she bumped into the table at Camille’s party (it happens to me and I don’t drink for no real reason other than don’t like it). Until she admits she is an alcoholic I am not going to say for sure that she is. Maybe yes, maybe no. I think there is just as much of a chance that Kyle is an alcoholic. She DOES lose her temper quickly and is always seen with booze at parties. Unlike the one she claims is an alcoholic who is never seen with booze (except the toast on the way to the Sac Kings game when they were all toasting with champagne) and has been nice to everyone and remembers her manners.

      I think that Kyle and Kathy are embarrassed by Kim. She doesn’t strive for the spotlight like they do, she isn’t quite as fashionable, perhaps gets a little too happy when buzzed, and WAS the child star of the family. She doesn’t live up to their expectations. Also being a child star she probably spent a lot of time being seen and not heard on the set or when around adults (she was a kid when I was and this was the mantra, seen but not heard) so when confronted with conflict she clams up. As a fellow virgo, I also have trouble lying or covering up for someone. I see that in her. In my family, when there are white lies to be told, we go to my oldest sister. She is very honest but can fling a white lie out there easily. My other sister (who I used to fight with terribly) loses her temper very easily like Kyle and our late mother would ask ME to apologize even if it wasn’t my fault to keep the peace. I see a lot of Kyle in that sister.

      • Di says:

        Great insight Jillz68. I think you make a lot of good points. From what I saw this season Kyle drinks and flies into a rage, over and over. I have yet to see anything to show me that Kim has a drinking problem, not saying that she doesn’t, but haven’t seen one shred of evidence to back up that claim. Kyle on the other hand…..roll the tape!

    Adrienne: “The medium, I think I saw her down two or three cocktails.”
    Kim: ”Why don’t you blow up your lips some more!”
    Kyle: “This is all bullshit to me!”
    Camille: “She posed naked in Playboy after the OJ trial.”

  57. Adgirl says:

    OMiB – I read somewhere the court date was February 22, 1010 which was last year. Was that a typo?

    P.S. I think it’s hysterical that she piles on the sob story about her supposedly horrifyingly abusive husband ,then minutes later, she claims that he’s contacted her to tell her who is requesting friend status on his Facebook.

    Huh?
    “I’m gonna beat the crap out of you…. and… hey loookie Jenn who wants to be my friend. ”

    Hi everyone!

    Crazy day today but first and foremost…

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY QUINCY!

    You’re my rock, you saved me from psychosis and you saved the blog. Without you helping me by co-blogging, I don’t know what I would have done but more than that you’ve supported me, given advice and are always there for me. I don’t deserve you but I’m so grateful for you!! I love you Quincy!

    I have to thank OneMoreInBoston for bringing it, in the info department! And for her unending support. I was just as shocked as all of you to read the news. WOW! Thanks for the updates OMIB! xoxo

    Top Chef All Stars tonight!!!

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      Of course you’re right.

      My take on all of this is Jen posted her blog last night kinda, sorta, maybe, indirectly showing her posters how to contribute to her PayPal account.

      Some did. But one started googling and found her mug shot, and other court documents. That poster tweeted it into tweeter land and it showed up in my email box.

      I dug around and found her court date is on Tues. Convenient huh? So if she has to go to the pokey- she has an alibi where she’s gone- she’s hiding from the husband. If she gets a slap on the wrist, then she can come “back” and continue to blog and rant and rave and troll here.

      slick or sick? I haven’t decided.

        Bingo – OMIB, I think your summary here is probably spot on. We’ll see what shows up on 2/22. Thanks for all the info. I’m not on twitter either, but in this crazy twilight zone of Real Housewives I somehow stumbled upon this latest Jen drama earlier this afternoon while googling to find out if Kelly made her plane to Haiti. Can you imagine? (of course you can -lol!)

        • Zoey says:

          I see no new tweets from the Kellamitous one, so she may actually be in Haiti. What a thought, picturing her there….I hope they don’t let her near anything too important, or talk too much to people, or….what exactly IS she going to do? Take pictures of herself, for sure. I can see her asking some poor child to take her picture….

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I don’t think she is in jail either – she just got a ton of dirty laundry thrown her way because of an alledged scam she may/may not have been pulling on her faithful followers. So now she is laying low – except she is still blogging – internet crack – she just can’t put it down! Hopefully her kids are safe and sound and not around all this craziness.

  61. AZ Girl says:

    What a day!!! I woke up today with visions of Allison once again making a total ass of herself not only with her drinking but her “Howdy Doody” outfit. Allison is another embarrassment to my state of AZ and well as I posted on yesterday’s blog she needs to contact Josh Flagg and move to LA.

    Then it is announced this morning by our WSL that today is our own Quincy’s Birthday. The blogging sidekick of Lynn. Her devotion to our site and her updates for Tabitha, MDL, and Fashion show (and others) are amazing. Quincy was given today the Mercedes Benz of a WHEELBARROW’s (thank you FP) as a birthday gift from her mother. I had just recovered from that and the news breaks that Jenn Sales is going to jail????

    Lynn this blog site is the best. Carry on……you guys are the best.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Nice summary AZ Girl, we have had a hell of a day, haven’t we? I think Real City Housewife was right, some therapy may be in order But no need to call anyone, we’ve got each other!

    • AZ Girl says:

      I will let you know if I hear anything locally about Allison but frankly after her last “job” with the local police and trying to find a child who is missing (mother is in jail pending formal sentencing) was such a fiasco she has basically dropped off the face of the local news.

      • HD says:

        What happened?

        • AZ Girl says:

          This is the last case she worked on and the baby has not been found as of yet. Mother is still in custody. She is a fake and a joke.

          Article below:

          Allison Dubois, well known Arizona medium, is scheduled to give her impressions about missing baby Gabriel Johnson, on CBS – channel 5, KPHO at 10:00 pm, this Tuesday evening. Dubois is the real-life medium that inspires the CBS television show, Medium, starring Patricia Arquette. Dubois gets psychic images that help her lead police to solve crimes in Arizona and elsewhere.

          Gabriel Johnson of Tempe was last seen on December 26. The 8-month old has been missing since then and his mother has provided different accounts of what happened. The investigation has led to Texas, where a landfill is being searched for the child’s remains.

          In her early career, Dubois worked on a case with the Texas Rangers involving children. The premiere episode of Medium was based on that case. Will Dubois solve the mystery and will Gabriel be found? Be sure to watch KPHO tomorrow night, to learn what our medium thinks happened.

Oh so touching line she tossed in there about him burning all her stuff, but could be replaced … except for the things he burned of her father’s. OMG! Oh, and I do not want money! Oh, no.

    Did anyone catch the Traylor and Faye moment as they were commiserating about the awful behaviour of Kim? They caught Lips complaining acting exasperated and I thought Faye agreed with her?

      Yes, I guess faye too finds Kim too much to handle, I hate Faye too.

      • error404 says:

        Kim’s a crazy drunk who carries her dead mom’s hair around in her purse in a baggie. She got so wasted at the basketball game she got confused and was cheering for the wrong team. Obviously tipsy at Camille’s tennis bash, she embarrassed everyone by jumping into the pool fully clothed. She was so sloshed at her sister’s white party, she even crawled into the baby’s crib to sleep it off.

        Oh wait… oh I keep getting the two sisters confused.

      • Amber...RealWife says:

        Funny how Kyle’s attitude towards her sister, rubs off on her friends too. They feel entitled to disrespect Kim and brush her off as a nuisance. Maybe they’re irritated because Kim will always be family and they can’t ever get rid of her for long.

            • Satchels of Jelly Beans says:

              I think that the name “Skeeze Couture” is more “fitting”. From the Urban Dictionary:

              1. skeeze
              1. a male or female who is ammoral and dirty. 2. a word used to insult just about anyone.

              “Go home you dirty skeeze!”

              2. Skeeze
              a word formed by mixing skank and sleeze

              “she is such a skeeze”

    • Adgirl says:

      Me too!! The shame the shame.

      We are huge Celeb Apprentice fans here. My husband is a CFO and has a MBA from a prestigous school. He adores this show. The tasks are simplistic but you really learn how business smart these celebs are. They run their own companies and pay the bills. They are respondsible for large payrolls and marketing.

      NeNe is going to meltdown everytime she is exposed for not having business savvy. Watch – whenever she feels insecure she’s gonna pick a fight.

      Trump will love the drama, but it will hurt the show in the long run if there is no substance.

      • Zoey says:

        Hm, I’ve never watched but you make it sound interesting. At some point it will have to be obvious to even Nene that she just can’t get along with anyone!

        I watched this show a few times in the past but I will certainly watch it now. I am thinking Star will remain composed and Nene will flip out. Can’t we all just get along?! Then again, that’s not good reality TV.

        • terry aley says:

          I’ve never seen Celebrity Apprentice. This will be my first year. And after this year, I’ll probably never see it again. Unless they recruit another crazy Real Housewife. Then I’ll have no choice but to keep watching against my will.

                I find the whole feud with her and Starr Jone’s rather suspect-and distasteful.

                Two black women get into it because they are the scripted nemesis this year and that D-bag Donald Trump is running around talking about them getting into ‘fist fights’.

                Did he claim Anne Duke was taking Joan for a long drive into the dessert?

    In other news: I feel like a perfectly normal person after catching up on today’s events.

  73. lillybee says:

    So who got the boot?

  74. Zoey says:

    Maybe they should have a ‘floating’ housewife, one that goes from show to show to liven up the ones that are boring. NeNe for drama, though she’s kinda hard to take, could go from show to show and start trouble, and leave a little drama in her wake.
    Bethenny would be fun to see having a few appearances on each show. It would change the dynamics and maybe bring out the humor in others. Sometimes you need someone to ignite the humor/drama!

    • Amber...RealWife says:

      How about BRAVO make a show called “BIG SISTER”. Have the RHW’s stay and compete against each other with the ultimate winner making $1million dollars. Just like BigBrother, they’d form alliances, vote each other off and have the hijinks ensue! BRAVO CAN YOU HEAR ME?!!

  75. tinselkitty says:

    But what about the missing nanny?

    • quincyil says:

      It is California. The live in housekeeper did not want to be on national TV.

      I think the most likely reason was she had immigration issues.

  76. lillybee says:

    Maybe they should start a show about the real housewives of the local trailer park.
    They could be shown shopping at walmart, dining at burger king and attending keggers.

      – chain-smoking, bad wig wearing, potty mouthed lazy ex-nurse has on going affair with rich married man, faux-lesbian affair with semi-famous dj, and affair with ball player who knocks her up
      – preachers daughter goes wild, get’s knocked up by ex-con, has shot gun wedding and lies about due date claiming huge ass baby is born “premature”
      – one resident buys a new huge trailer, only to have it repossessed a week later
      – the teenage daughter of one resident is so mad that her mom was ignored by her neighbor, she rips her weave out and the popo has to be called, but the camera crews of Bravo and Cops have a turf war of their own
      – huge fight breaks out at neighborly bbq over whose porn spread was more “morally corrupt”
      – 3 drunk-off-their-asses bitches scream “You’re a lousy drunk and out of control!” at the quiet girl in the corner sipping her can of diet coke.

      Hey Sane!

      I’m sorry you’re stuck on Jill Zarin. I felt the same way about Rachel Zoe. I couldn’t let it go. Finally, I realized that Zoe reminds me of someone in my immediate family. I was able to let Zoe go by writing about the person in my family and allowing myself to feel the anger I had previously suppressed.

      I have no way of knowing whether Jill Zarin bothers you as much as she does for the same reason, but I write you with the suggestion to have a nice thinking session for yourself.

      If there is a Zarin-like person in your life, I am tremendously sorry. Zarin is really a nasty narcissist and she keeps score, which is quite mean. I’m sorry if someone close to you is like this.

      Good luck and god bless you!

      • the sane anonomous says:

        hi terry,
        i was raised by a woman like jill :))) its probably all about me, forgiving her, and in turn, forgiving myself, for posessing any qualities i recognize in her.
        i can get over jill, still not sure ill watch her again!

        • Terry says:

          Dear Sane,

          Gosh, I’m so sorry that you were raised by a woman like Jill. She is horrible and your hurt must run deep.

          A couple things I learned in therapy: you don’t have to forgive to find peace. Some things are unforgivable and it is possible, at least for me, to live peacefully knowing that a person did me wrong and that I have at least talked about it and reconstructed what happened.

          As to your own personality: I rather doubt you have the same qualities as your Jill. You may, once in a blue moon, engage in the same sort of behaviors (but really watered down). That is not a reason for alarm on your part unless you catch yourself doing something heinous.

          Jill’s salient features are her belief that she is more special than others, her lack of empathy, and her exploitation of others. Just from reading your note, I can tell that you don’t share any of those qualities.

          Anyway, I wish you the best and really am rooting for you. You have a bit of a tough road ahead as you think about your Jill, and I’m sorry for it. I will be thinking of you.

          Terry

          • the sane anonomous says:

            thanks terry, my jill passed away many years ago. i have had therapy , for many years , and it did help. i think the more i realize about myself, the more i realize that when we dont forgive anyone, were not forgiving ourselves.
            i can forgive jill zarin, and my own :)))) but ill be posting if i start season four and she hasnt worked on some of those issues lol

            • Terry says:

              Wow, Sane! Good for you if you can forgive. I find it very difficult to do that, so I usually don’t force it. Sometimes it comes afterward, without my even thinking about it. It is a very peaceful feeling.

              Anyway, I’m rooting for you and hope that you can forgive, if that is what you want to do.

              It warms my heart to learn you’ve had therapy; I wanted to suggest it but didn’t want to overstep my bounds.

              One very good thing about these shows, for me at least, has been being able to observe the behavior in a third party. It’s been interesting to compare Jill (and some others) to people in my own past (and present).

              I have a Rachel Zoe in my life at present. It’s a man. I’ve been avoiding Rachel Zoe because I don’t want reminders. Yet at some point I will force myself to watch her and then allow myself to get angry. Currently, I’m full of compassion for the guy, but not angry yet, and I ought to be.
