I Hate Jill Zarin  Million Dollar Listing / Watch What Happens Live

Million Dollar LIsting – Week Seven – By Quincy IL

Josh Flagg is at the yellow mansion, Heart Ridge, which sits on 20 acres.  The house is a Victorian located 45 minutes north of LA.  Josh has had a problem selling the house so he has brought in two professional photographers to help show the listing to potential buyers. Josh interviews with the photographers while they are working. He has made friends with the maid and includes her when looking at the photo shots.

Madison meets at an ocean front restaurant with Jane, the owner of a property that she would like to lease.  For the past 4 years, Jane received $10,500 a month, but she would accept $9500 a month because of the bad market.  Jane wants to leave her furniture there. Madison goes to the house and there are six barking dogs.  Elisa, the renter, shows him the house with the dogs following him around.  The house is 2344 sq. ft., 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, designer kitchen, and it’s on the ocean.  This is going to be a problem to show as Madison hates dogs, especially little dogs.

Josh Altman is negotiating a huge sale.  He has an offer of $15,000,000 on a house listed for $19,500,000. That is 4.5 million less than the listing and very low.  Josh presents the offer to Elise, the listing agent and she tells him that she is surprised. They talk to their clients and make counter offers.  Josh A is authorized to go to $17,000,000, but his client would be pleased if he stays below this and there is the potential of more work in the future from that buyer. They agree on $16.500.000 and start escrow immediately for a 10 day close.

Josh Flagg is back at Heart Ridge to show the house to potential buyers.  He had people who are interested, but not offers.  One lady with a small dog came and said how she would change everything including the draperies, but she did not make an offer.

Josh Altman meets with a condo developer in Venice Beach who has 9 units to sell. The units are from 876 sq. ft. to 2476 sq. ft.  There are custom kitchens, green materials, rooftop views, and 40 ft walls of glass. They are 2 blocks from the beach. Josh immediately lists the units and advertises.

Madison has a potential renter and he goes to the house with dogs to find the current renter away. He has to enter with the dogs barking.  He corrals the larger dogs behind a metal fence, but the smaller dogs surround Madison and avoid capture.  The potential rental likes the house and offers $9,000 a month, but she does not want the furniture that the dogs have enjoyed for the lease term of their owner.  The new renter agrees to have the owner’s furniture moved to storage when they move in and the deal is agreed upon.

Josh Flagg has no luck in selling the yellow mansion so he calls the owner to suggest that they lease the house. The owner thinks a rock star will rent and destroy his home so he says, “No.”  Josh suggests taking the home off the market and then putting it back on. The owner thinks this makes him look indecisive and is a bad move.  The owner wonders why his house is not in magazines.  Josh Flagg said magazines don’t see houses.  Josh says goodbye to the owner and sends a kiss to his wife and kids.

Madison is at a restaurant with Heather, his assistant and his friend Jessica.  They talk and tease Josh about dating.  The women decide to throw a mixer for Madison and he thinks it is time to date again.

Josh Altman and Mikey borrow Josh’s brother’s motorcycle for a trip to Venice Beach for multiple showings.   Three women come at the appointment times, but Josh has trouble showing the apartments as they are spread out over one block. Josh and a client get trapped on a rooftop.  Mikey leads another client all over and he can’t find Josh Altman for a while.   They agree that it was a mistake to have the appointments so close together.

Josh Flagg meets with a man who appears to be editing his book.  The man asks Josh about one chapter and wonders if this should be included.  Josh says that Colton is reading the book.  There is another chapter, but Josh states, “This is what I grew up with.”   The man tells Josh that once it is in print, it is out. Josh will work on selling other properties and hope this sells too.

Josh Altman has three offers on units in Venice Beach. He dismisses one offer as too low. The owners have a set price per sq ft which makes the owners more secure in the value of their property.  Two offers are at full price and the owners are happy with Josh’s work.  His commission is $53,000 for two weeks of work.

Madison has anxiety and he tries on a number of outfits for his party. His underwear is bright pink.  He tells us that he is going 120 mph at dating. He meets a lot of men and really likes one who is quite tall. Heather’s boyfriend, Josh Altman arrives. Heather steps away and Madison accuses Josh A of trying to plant ideas in Heather’s mind. Josh A denies this. There is a lot of swearing.  Josh A finds Heather and tells her he is leaving, but he knows this is not her fault.

Thanks Quincy, great job.    LynnNChicago

Watch What Happens Live   Andy Cohen by LynnNChicago

Guest: Kathy Griffin

Bravo’s My Life On The D-List star Kathy Griffin joins Andy tonight on Watch What Happens Live to promote her new special airing on Bravo Thursday night, “50 and Not Pregnant”.

Before getting into his discussion with Kathy Griffin, Andy talked a bit about The Real Housewives of Miami that just aired on his network.  Noting that the slaughtering and roasting of a pig grossed him out, he called it disgusting.  He’s obviously never tasted a freshly roasted pig!  He also talked a bit about Lea on RHOM and her shopping techniques.  Apparently she tries on clothes without removing her existing clothes and Andy seemed to think that is how homeless people do it?

Tonight‘s poll question:  Who‘s side are you on?  Kathy Griffin or Sarah Palin?

Kathy explains that her feud with Palin started because of Palin’s daughter Willow and her inappropriate comments on Facebook.  Apparently little Willow and LuAnn de Lessups daughter, Victoria have something in common, they use the same vulgar language to describe gay people.

Andy’s three obsessions tonight:

1. Mama Elsa of The Real Housewives of Miami is quite a character, a montage of her scenes were pretty comical, particularly her announcement that it takes 2 weeks for her to prepare to get on an airplane, and her concern that her daughter may roll down the mountain at her snowy Aspen wedding.

2.  At Alexia‘s dinner party on RHOM, Lea was mean to Marysol, making inappropriate comments about her new fiance needing a green card.  Andy asked Kathy if inappropriate comments are considered a joke if you announce that it’s a joke and cackle.  Kathy disapproved.

3. Andy played a sneak peek of Kathy Griffin’s Special 50 and Not Pregnant.  The special will air Thursday at 9pm

Kathy doesn’t always respond to questions with a straight answer, I know, shocking!  She was asked which housewives had best/worst plastic surgery.   Kathy noted that Miami’s Elsa takes it to a new level.  Elsa’s not a housewife, but a housewife’s mother so Kathy added that The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Alexis had giant bonkers – and wondered where that was in the bible.  Speaking of plastic surgery…see for yourself, Kathy doesn’t deny it.

Kathy gave a fascinating answer when asked if she would ever date Slade Smiley of The Real Housewives of Orange County.  Apparently at some point in time Slade did approach Kathy, trying to convince her that it would be good publicity for Kathy to go out with him.  Obviously Kathy didn’t agree but she did note that Gretchen is a good sport and attends Kathy’s shows and is able to laugh at jokes about herself.

Kathy added that Slade is one of those people that she can make fun of right to his face, similar to Andy Cohen.  Andy’s wonky eye was a good example of one of those Cohen jokes.

Slade Smiley

Kathy was asked which celebrity was most vocal about Kathy’s jokes, apparently Whitney Houston approached Kathy at the Billboard Awards, waved a finger in her face, and said, “Don’t talk about me, don’t make jokes about me.”  Naturally the first thing Kathy did was put it in the show.

Whitney Houston

Griffin had some tips for Charlie Sheen.  He should have someone wash his hair.  She suggested that one of his live in girlfriends hose him down.  Kathy completely disagreed with Alex Baldwin’s advice to sober up and shut up, she thinks he should continue talking, its selling.

Charlie Sheen

Kathy was asked if she had to choose one Housewife to swim in the lady pond with, who would she choose?  Andy called this question a WWHL question classic, I think it‘s just Andy‘s sick obsession with turning everyone gay.  Kathy chose Atlanta’s Phaedra Parks.

Kudos to Kathy for her “A List Type” appearance on tonight’s episode of Glee!  She told viewers that she was able to improvise a bit with her lines.  She was thrilled to play someone in Tea Party.

Tonight’s game was a bit less lame than usual, still lame but at least no cheap wheel to spin, just Andy calling out names of Irish celebrities and asking Kathy if they’re good for the Irish or bad for the Irish.  Calling the Game  “Irish or I-Rash”

Andy called out celebrities like Conan O’Brian, Rosie O’Donnell and Liam Neeson and with one exception, Kathy said they were all good for the Irish, her one exception, Bill O’Reilly.

A caller asked why Kathy was no longer producing her hit show, My Life On The D-List.  She jokingly said she had gotten “too big” for the show but seriously said that she was very proud of her six seasons and thankful to Bravo for letting her do whatever she wanted with the show.  She is sticking to specials in the form of her stand up routine now.

When asked which shows Kathy was banned from appearing on, she rattled off, Regis, Letterman, Ellen, The View, and has accepted the fact that she’ll most likely never be one of Barbara Walters most fascinating people.

Kathy asked which Housewife was the most fun to impersonate, I think she’s feeling pressure not to show any favoritism toward any of the Housewives similar to Andy, but she said that it depended on which series was airing at the time.

Andy’s Mazel tonight when to Tina Fey for doing Housewives spoof on 30 Rock.

The Jackhole – to a Broadway producer who refused to allow Barbara Striesand to star in the movie version of Gypsy.

Poll Results – Sarah Palin 51% and  Kathy Griffin 49%

I think this was viewers attempt to show Cohen they won’t be made a fool of, this was clearly a poll that Andy thought would be a landslide in Kathy’s favor and viewers voted for Palin as a joke and a bit of slam at Andy’s ridiculous polls.

Andy says The Real Housewives of Miami will be the last Housewives series he plans on creating:


Coming up on Watch What Happens Live:

Sunday – Alexis Bellino of The Real Housewives of Orange County and Carla Hall from Top Chef

Alexis Bellino

Carla Hall

Next Tuesday – Real Housewives of Miami’s Marysol and her mother Elsa, apparently she’s preparing to fly as we speak.

Elsa and Marysol

My latest Associated Content article called, “Real Housewives – Where Are They Now?“ has some interesting information about ex-housewife and ex-Slade Smiley Victim Jo De La Rosa among others.  I hope you’ll take a look:


Mary Amons of The Real Housewives of DC is making an appearance in Chicago today.  She’ll be at the 900 N Michigan Shops between 6pm and 8pm tonight.

Since returning from New York City I have finished reading Cat Ommanney’s book “Inbox Full”.  I highly recommend it, I found it difficult to put down.  Its a great read, you can get it now on Amazon.com:


Until Next Time…..

      • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

        Thank you all so much~I could not have done it without your making me feel like I am not alone & I hope anyone that goes through what I did gets help fast.
        Your love & sweet wishes is just what I needed.
        Love you all…

  2. BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

    I just read on RT no more HW spin offs after Miami wives~don’t know if I should be happy or sad. lol

    • Sha2000 says:

      I’m sad. I wanted to see Dallas, because I lived in the area for many years. Even the average HW in the DFW “metroplex” is done up to the nines literally just to take out the trash-hair, make-up, nails, lol. But they are great folks!

    • error404 says:

      Aw, so no SF then? I was kinda looking forward to a “Tales of the City” meets “Dharma&Greg” type show.

      • Sha2000 says:

        There are so many good venues they could chose, I think they should scrap a few & show us some new cities. NY & ATL are boring as hell, wish they’d either scrap them or give us a new cast.

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          LOL dont you know how many here were losing it when NYC didnt come on as planned LOL

      • California35 says:

        That would have been fun to watch 🙂

        I was hoping that they (Bravo, Andy, whoever) would do the opposite, create new HW and start canceling the old ones. We already know these ones, bring out the new 🙂

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          people here werent going to watch the miami one
          so why would Bravo make newer ones

  3. Sha2000 says:

    Good recap but I’ve got to disagree with this:

    “I think this was viewers attempt to show Cohen they won’t be made a fool of, this was clearly a poll that Andy thought would be a landslide in Kathy’s favor and viewers voted for Palin as a joke and a bit of slam at Andy’s ridiculous polls.”

    WWHL is a fun show and the polls are just another fun part, not to be taken seriously, the entire point IS that the show is silly. Plus Kathy can be just as polarizing as Palin is so no wonder it was close…just like the Gretchen & Tamara poll last week, it went the opposite than expected way. The entire show is all in good and yes ridiculous fun & never should be taken seriously.

    For those who watch RHOM I thought last night was a good episode. I really LOVED Marisol’s wedding gowns, each one was absolutely gorgeous! And I have to say her home is just decorated lovely; her’s and Alexia’s home are decorated by far the best in my opinion…also they seem to be the two nicest & most well grounded ladies in the cast.

    • error404 says:

      See, I had the opposite thought. I thought Lynn had underestimated the crazy tea partiers’ obsession. I think many a hockey mom missed her teen daughter’s boyfriend sneaking into the house for unprotected sex because she was too busy making America safe from sinners like stand-up comedians. The word “redial” may have been worn off the button of many a tea party princess phone last night.

      • Sha2000 says:

        Error, I couldn’t agree more!!!! I just didn’t want to say it because I once long ago made what I thought an innocent political observation (on GWB) & I was verbally attacked here, and told that I quote “made her blood boil” and freedom of speech was not extended to this blog nor the internet. That poster still stops by here from time to time, but gratefully it’s been awhile. Funny enough I googled her moniker (because it was quite unique) and she is on a lot of blogs making disparaging remarks regarding democrats & liberals (both of which I proudly call myself)…so she could speak freely apparently but not those who disagreed. So I’ve learned my lesson, plus I don’t want to offend many of the lovely people here who may have a different view point, that said I think it should be okay to say what you feel & it’s okay to agree to disagree…from housewives to politics 🙂

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          I memeber that.

          • Mimisfbay says:

            Me thinks I was also a target! Both liberal and dem and lest we forget left coaster. I didn’t read comments for months after that. Skulked back and peeked for months.

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        Why do you think the calls that didn’t support Kathy came from a ‘crazy tea partiers obsession’. I didn’t watch the show or vote, but I wouldn’t have sided with Kathy on this issue- and I am no fan or supporter of SP.

        I think Kathy is full of shit on her ‘rational’. Even if she was being truthful- she is targeting a family because a fed up from being picked on kid- used a very stupid word directed at her tormentor? Is that worthy of the campaign she is raging against them?

        But getting back to why she is full of shit; She goes after conservatives all the time and commonly uses terms like “hater” to describe anyone who doesn’t believe or support the same things she does.

        As much as I enjoy Kathy’s humor for the most part and I appreciate her entertaining the troops and her efforts more marriage equality in CA; I feel that if a gay teens family of the same level of attention she dedicates to the Palin’s, she would be calling that person a “bully”.

        • quincyil says:

          I think Kathy is really in good shape for 50. She’s done something to her face so she looks different, but she has a great figure.

        • Sha2000 says:

          That’s why I said that Kathy was polarizing too Rabble. Although I agree with a lot (not all) of her politics, I can only take her in small doses. Didn’t care for her (or Brooke for that matter) back on Suddenly Susan. Kathy is smart but not always funny.

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          uh thats because most conservatives ARE haters

          • indy anna says:

            Wrong. Name calling isn’t nice sweetie. Using ALL indicates that anyone who isn’t like you or thinks like you is a hater. Sticks and stones.

          • Rabble Rouser says:

            How am I suppose to respond to that?

            I’m really not that interested in a heavy political discussion or the merits of one party over another.

        • indy anna says:

          Thank you, thank you, well said.

      • Adgirl says:

        Maybe people are turned off the KG makes so much bank being nasty about people she doesn’t like politically.

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          I know it kind of grates on me;

          As much conflict she has with BW and some of the other women of The View, they seem to have the same reaction to people who they don’t politically agree with

          • Sha2000 says:

            Yes. I didn’t think it was right to walk out on O’Reilly (as much as I dislike him), I thought it was unprofessional…isn’t the point of the show different view points after all?

    • JKW says:

      Sha…I thought it was kind of boring at first but it did pick up. Have these people never heard of a pig roast ? What planet are they from ? I never thought of it being a Cuban thing. I have to say Lea is quite inappropriate at times but I do like her. She really doesn’t care what anyone thinks. I am not a big shopper either so I thought she was hilarious with trying things on over her clothes and getting everyone out of there quickly.

      • Sha2000 says:

        If I had her money I’d be trying things on all day.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        it is however a huge cuban thing same as hawaii

      • Bea from NJ (@sweeetbea on Twitter) says:

        The gowns were gorgeous that Marysol tried on. Will have to keep the designer in .. what was his name? Angelo Sanchez?

        Elsa rolling her r’s as she said Marysol would ‘roll down the mountain’ was comical. She really is quite the character.

        I’m not a big fan of the pig roast myself but I sure did get hungry … it does taste good when done right ;-D

        The more Lea opens her mouth , the more she rubs me the wrong way. She did make up for those comments when she showed her concern for Adriana and her trying on clothes like a homeless person was comical too.

        I’m still enjoying the Miami housewives & just read the reunion show will be live. Should be interesting.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      i t a her gowns were brethtaking and she looked beautiful in them
      I hope this guy doesnt break her heart

  4. MK Valle says:

    A couple of corrections….Madison doesn’t hate dogs, although he did say that he doesn’t like little dogs. The rental house is not on the ocean but has an ocean view. Silly, I know, I’m just a bit anal. So Josh Flagg is gay, no big deal. I love his quirky ways. Josh Altman – yuck, I have a really hard time staying in the room to watch him, he kinda makes my skin crawl.
    I’m so over Andy Cohen and WWHL.

    • Sha2000 says:

      I think Josh F said it a season or two ago…yup, no biggie…I like him.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        i dont recall him ever saying it i always assumed it was known
        it used to drive me nuts when madison would claim to be BI everytime he was on screen and im at home saying
        Girl who do you think your fooling LOL

    • Rhetorica says:

      I didn’t like Altman at first but he’s growing on me. I think we see the real him with Heather.

    • quincyil says:

      When you live on a prairie in Illinois, being able to see the ocean means… you are on the ocean. ROTFL…. I should have said that Madison hates dogs at showings.

      • quincyil says:

        I did talk about showings… … close, but no cigar.

        I actually think …California is on the ocean BTW.. rotfl..

        • HD says:

          I love Josh Altman. I love the way he dresses, his go get it attitude. He reminds me so much of Ari Gold it is ridiculous!

        • Kansas Girl says:

          Me too. Before I visited, I somehow thought the whole state might have an ocean view. LOL!

          • quincyil says:

            The New Yorker expect us to think that one part of Manhattan is better than another part of Manhattan and all of Manhattan is bettern than Brooklyn. Now, the Califorians want to tell us that if we see water we are not “on the ocean.”

            ROTFL. I bet they can’t tell a level one from a level three tornado. I bet you and I can look at the sky and we can tell.

            • BlueSky_Forever says:

              Out here on the east coast folks think we had a tornado if one tree is uprooted and maybe a roof gets damaged. Lol, they have no idea what a real tornado is like, & hope to God they never have to find out! I’ve been through some scary storms out on the prairie, where basements are a must. Lol, the east coast beaches are not as beautiful as the west coast.

      are we all really sure that is what the big to do is over the Mystery Guy

      i mean sure it seems like that must be it but maybe there is more to this story then meets the eye

      • quincyil says:

        Under his breathe at one point in the discussion with the man (perhaps his editor,) Josh said something like that was how I was raise.

        I think that book will be interesting.

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        Do you mean Colton?

        I’m not in a to-do over it. Josh is gay- Colton is his S/O. It’s as much as a revelation to me as if he came out and said he’s left handed.

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          yes colton but its bravo that is making it into such a mystery unless of course Colton is not out to his family i cant see what the big deal is
          i always assumed Josh was gay but didnt want to make it a focal point of his life and that madison was having such a hard time accepting that he was gay not bi that he couldnt stop mentioning it

          • Rabble Rouser says:

            I’m would guess Colton’s family would have to know unless they are in the same state of denial as Liberace’s family.

            Colton and Josh are often photographed ‘together’ and their facebook profiles ‘link’ them.

      I just watched that part of the show and …. I was correct. Madison called it “a beach property.” From the large windows you can see this huge….thing that in Illinois we call water. …

    • Sha2000 says:

      Who in hell strikes another person with a glass? Fighting in bar brawls & with glass no less is low class to say the least! It reminds me of many years ago when I was in Rio and I saw a prostitute smash a bottle & threaten a man with it’s jagged end (it was on the Copacabana…nice neighborhood but the prostitutes are everywhere there)…that’s how lowly these people act, no better than an actual “prostitution-whore’s” they decry, but at least the prostitute I saw didn’t actually use the broken bottle, like they did.

      • quincyil says:

        We are dealing with low life people. The Manzos seems to be in the fight too. Defending their women? Yeah.. right..

          I would believe that.

    OT, I found the cutest thing for a good cause & I wish there was a bumper sticker:

    • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

      Hi Susan~
      I want a puppy so bad for some reason but something small. We had a flyer in our mailbox yesterday saying there were two puppies available for adoption right away. If there comes a time when we can afford a tiny dog & would love to have one so much & would go straight to pound~I would adopt older dog too.

      • California35 says:

        I hope you get one since it is something you want. It is your B-day! maybe you get one 🙂

        My dog is a small dog, not the tiny hadbag small. Still, I spend so little on her. All she needs is food and a nice place to sleep. She has toys, that last her a long time… I bought those because she is home alone a lot, but it turns out she doesn’t play with them that much. I did spend $ on clothes that she doesn’t wear…but I am over that…. What she does need, as you probably know, is attention, some training, and walks. So if you have the time and you want one….go for it 🙂

        • Sha2000 says:

          I have a beautiful medium sized dog who I love tremendously, but I’d love a little pom like Giggy Vanderpump (lol) and a weiner dog & a great dane…I want dogs in all sizes. I’m a zoo keeper at heart, I love animals! Patty, you should get a dog they are the best companions by far. When I’m down the dog figures it out before my husband or kids have a clue…shes always by my side, room to room, even now. Check out this site if you are adopting:

          • LavaLady says:

            I have a medium sized (30lb) dog also. And sometimes I think he would love to have a buddy to play with.

            • Sha2000 says:

              I just read today that research has found what dogs want most is another dog. They are the most social animal!

      • VAgirl says:

        Happy Birthday BaaBee! Sounds like you’re doing great. I have a Chihuahua-Poodle (9 lbs) and he is one spoiled rotten little boy and since I recently retired (at 55, I am very lucky), I decided he needs a playmate since I can stay home with both of them. I wanted to rescue one so my daughter went to a high kill shelter today, found a small dog for met (12 lbs.), sent me a picture so I could see him and told me he was going to be euthanized either tomorrow or Friday. Of course I told her to get him. So she paid $50 and now I have another dog, just like that. She lives about 7 hours away from me so I’m going to have to go get him. I can’t wait to see him. Anyway, sorry for going on so long, but the moral of the story is, there are some great dogs at rescues and shelters.

        • Sha2000 says:

          That’s wonderful VA & I’m sure the dog will show his gratitude, congrats!

          • VAgirl says:

            Thanks, Susan. BTW my name is Susan, too! One of the organizations that uses Petfinders.com is Golden S Rescue. They are located in South Carolina, but if they approve you to adopt one of their dogs, they will bring it to you, no matter where you live. Check them out. They have lots of little dogs, mixed breed and full breeds! Just google them and you find them. AND they will take the dog back if some reason it doesn’t work out.

      If any one ever sees any of these Bravo stars scheduled on HSN or the other shows, would you please mention it on the board. I’m sure people would want to watch and maybe order.

    • California35 says:

      I do like some of the items, very nice…but I am with you on the price. I am not sure, are they gold or cylver?

      Lynn, were you wearing any of her items on your pictures? I liked them.

      • vilzvet says:

        She’s still on until 3 p.m. EST. And I thought it was mentioned on the board yesterday? I remember seeing it somewhere because that made me DVR it. CA, she’s describing everything as “real” (and there are definitely diamonds in those earrings) but at costume jewelry prices. I would have gone for that white cuff but they all sold out.

        • California35 says:

          Thanks vilzvet. I keep thinking it is costume jewelry, but it is too pricee for that (at least for me). I only looked in her webpage once and never went back, so I have no idea now.

          • vilzvet says:

            The rings at the end were to die for, but for $599.00 too steep for me to buy for myself, LOL. And Christmas has passed, oh well.

  9. HD says:

    Can someone tell me who is Colton from the book that Josh wrote about?

    • California35 says:

      He has not been on the show. He was on the preview for next week, and I think they are trying to give the idea that he is Josh’s love interest. That is what I got from it, but it could just be a trick and he is a brother lol

      • HD says:

        I wonder why Josh would say that Colton seems like a private person and then proceed to write about him? I got the love interest vibe too but then I thought maybe its his brother like you did as well. Is Josh F. gay?

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          “Colton Thorne” is Josh’s boyfriend.

          I posted before that I was curious about the fact Josh is gay- and not really closeted, he and Colton are pretty public about their relationship but how there was never a mention of it on the show

        • California35 says:

          I think that is why the publisher(?) asked Josh if he was sure he wanted to add that into the book, and that he should run it by Colton.

          • Rabble Rouser says:

            I was more intrigued by the inferences to his upbringing. Maybe I misread it, but it had the feeling of it not being a happy home or that he is one of those rich kids that for some reason harbors some sort of resentment towards their parents.

            I’m pretty sure I remember him saying something last season that his mother kept him medicated on adderol or something.

            • Sha2000 says:

              I’m pretty sure he said he was gay on another season. He is wearing a band on his left hand…

              • Rabble Rouser says:

                I don’t remember that but it’s possible I didn’t see it.

                Band on his left hand? What does that mean.

            • quincyil says:

              I picked that up the part about how he was raised. He said his mom was a teacher and then a lawyer in an article.
              That is an impressive family background. I give him credit for working. A lot of those heirs really waste their lives. He’s 25 with a good job and successful reality show. I think he is funny too.

            • quincyil says:

              I looked for information on Josh Flagg and there is nothing recent on his issues with the authorities over paintings and other art objects.

              I wouldn’t think it would take two years for charges if there was evidence.

              • Rabble Rouser says:

                The picture Lynn has of him standing in front of the Picasso is one of the pieces of art he is accused of stealing.

                From what I read about the Jade sculptures, I think he was under surveillance for something and they got pictures of them in his house.

                I think as far as their being proof and him not being charged yet as along the same vein as how the FBI can spend YEARS and YEARS building a case against someone. It seemed like it took forever to put guys like Capone and Gotti away.

    Error: Are you still around? I have a Glee question for you. Did I hear correctly last night that Quinn gave her baby to Rachel’s mother? I missed most of the first season, and I guess I never knew this.

    • error404 says:


      Rachel’s birth mom was the director of their rival glee group that ended up winning regionals last year.

      She and Rachel reunited briefly, but neither got much out of the relationship.

      Quinn went into labor at regionals and Rachel’s mom decided she wanted to start afresh with a new daughter. Quinn’s Mom left her dad because he was cheating, and took Quinn back. Quinn decided to give the baby up and try and salvage what was left of her schooling/youth.

      • LavaLady says:

        Aaah, I see now. Thanks, error. Are you going to do any more Glee recaps?

    thanks for the great blog, Lynn! – I do not watch WWHL as I cannot stand Andy Cohen – I also think that Kathy Griffin is a classless piece of trash – the poll may well have simply reflected the fact that most people see her as nothing more than a foul mouthed bully with so little talent that she must resort to breating a minor child – if the shoe was on the other foot there would be calls for her attacker to be drawn and quartered –

    as for MDL – love it – so much fun to watch and the new Josh is growing on me a bit, but my favorite is Josh Flagg’s Grandmother – now she is the one who should write a book!!

    • KookADoodleDo says:

      I think she did write a book, I just can’t remember the title.

    • DarkSonnet says:

      Josh self published a book about Edith’s life – “A Simple Girl: Stories My Grandmother Told Me”. It chronicles her life as a child, living through Nazi Germany and her successes after coming to America.

      • KookADoodleDo says:

        Thanks for remembering that DarkSonnet!
        I found the bok on Amazon & it sounds interesting…..

        “Edith Flagg is truly an inspiration to all. A Simple Girl tells the life story of a woman who survived the unimaginable and fulfilled the American Dream. Flagg was born in a small town in Romania in 1919. Having traveled to Vienna to go to fashion school at the young age of 15, she watched Hitler march into Austria and decided at that moment she would not let him decide her fate. Flagg fled Austria to Holland, where she became an active member of the Dutch Underground, an organization that fought Hitler and the Nazi regime. A simple Girl describes all that Flagg ( a single mother) endured. After immigrating to Palestine at the end of the war, Flagg moved to America, where her incredible story becomes that much more amazing. With $5 in her pocket, Flagg managed to become one of the leading fashion designers of her day, and a pillar in the California apparel industry. From a mere $2000, she built a multi-million dollar clothing company and has over the years given vast sums of her wealth to charity. She is an inspiration to everyone. ”

  13. California35 says:

    I have a pregnant/baby question.

    Is Robitusin safe to take when one is pregnant? My sister has been sick with the flue or cold for a few weeks, and the doctor told her only to take tylenol because she had headaches. She got worst for the last few days, and the doctor told her to take Robitusin. She was so upset that she was told never to take anything, and now she is told its okay. In fact she was told she can take anything she can buy over the caunter. I am not sure how much of it she has taken, but she feel much better. Now the thing is, that the baby is not showing any signs of wanting to come out. My sister was due on Sunday, and up until the day she took the medicine the baby was showing some signs.

    Any ways, I kind of joked that now the baby is sleepig and doesn’t want to come out. I know the doctors know what they are doing, but I am wondering. I don’t want to mention it to her or mom, because I don’t know if that would worry them…

    • HD says:

      I am sure the baby is fine if she practically on the verge of giving birth. If she had taken it early on in the pregnancy I would have advised against it. I wouldn’t even mention it at this point and get everyone worried. I am sure everything will turn out well! Blessings!

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      I think medical opinions on what medication that can be taken would very depending on that stage of pregnancy she is in and her medical history.

      It’s probably like asking if it’s okay to have a glass of wine; while there hasn’t been any recorded instances where one glass of wine or a very rare class of wine has caused fetal alcohol syndrome (at least I’ve never seen or heard of such a report-and if there was I would think it would be head line news)- some OB/GYN’s might even say there can be some medical benefits to wine in moderation in the last trimester- as a collective, they aren’t going to say it’s ‘okay’.

      If I were your sister and I was really ill and was not getting better using other medications, I would take it-especially if the doctor recommend it.

      • California35 says:

        Thank you both…it does make sence to be okay now that she is due.
        She has been feeling so much better and headaches gone. I am happy about that because she (and I) was getting worry to be sick and have to deal with labor being sick. We were in contact a lot because she was sick and feeling ancious, now she is resting and sleeping.

        The due date was Sunday, and now any day now. She will not go beyond Thursday/Friday because the doctor told her if nothing changes, she will be endused then.

  14. Rabble Rouser says:

    There is something very suspect about the house that Josh sold for 16.5 million. It’s still listed at 25 million dollars.

    A previous sale was listed for it 11/1/10 for $0 dollars.

    Maybe someone who understands real estate law or related law/accounting can help me out. I’ve seen stuff on block shopper where rich folks seem to put their home in a family trust and will buy and sell it back and forth to each other (husband and wife sort of scenario) . Is this for tax purposes? I wonder if the ‘sale’ was some sort of internal wheeling and dealing going on. I also wonder if a recorded lower sale would be of a benefit when it comes to re-accessing the value of house for property tax purposes. It was listed at 77k per year.

  15. shamrockblonde says:

    Cali – whatever the Mom takes, the baby takes – most doctors tell you only to take Tylenol – a useless drug if ever there was one – so I am surprised that this one said to take Robitussin – I’m sure that the baby is okay, but she might want to be sure that the doctors know that she took the Robitussin just to be sure – no worries – right now that little angel is in the safest place it will ever be in it’s entire life – maybe the wee one knows that and figures better to stay put!!

    • California35 says:

      The doctor knows, she is who told my sister to take it when she went to her last visit (Monday). My sister bought it on her way home after the appointment.

      I do wonder how much of it she is taking or if the doctor told her for how long. I will check that when I talk to her later today. She is feeling much better and can finally sleep.

    For someone who refuses to talk about the RHOM there was certainly a lot of talk about it!

    I don’t think people voted for Palin as a joke. I am not a fan of Palin myself, but I think her younger kids should be off limits.

    I don’t count Bristol because she is an adult and she put herself out there on DWTS, but the other younger kids i would say off limits for sure. I know a lot would say Kathy is Kathy and I sure that’s her reasoning, but that doesn’t mean it’s right.

    Is she that desparate for attention that she needs to do that to put herself out in the press? Oh wait….it’s Kathy Griffin….of course she is!

    If this was Obama and his kids, somehow I think your reaction would be very different.

    Bullying is bullying and you can’t change the rule because you don’t agree with their politics.

    • error404 says:

      Palin, like Kate Goselyn, is a reality tv star. What’s Obama got to do with it?

      Sure, the press was cruel to Amy Carter and Chelsea Clinton just for being themselves.. gawky kids. Neither of them ever to my knowledge posted hateful messages on a public forum. Apples and Oranges.

      If one of Teresa and Joe’s kids said that same thing on RHoNJ, we’d be discussing it openly just like we did the comments about jewish husbands, etc… Why the kid gloves for Willow?

      • HD says:


      • indy anna says:

        It isn’t just kid gloves for Palin’s children, it should be for all children. When a 50 year old takes on a kid, that is bullying. I was around when Amy Carter and Chelsea Clinton lived in the White House and the press left them alone. It was Margaret Truman who was crucified and Harry gave ’em hell. Kids should always be off limits. Is this how we teach them to be careing and loving humans? As adults we have the responsibility to behave in a manner which teaches youngsters how to be a good person. Sadly, we’re failing our children.

        • error404 says:

          then we grew up in parallel universes, cause on my home planet, the media never left Amy Carter alone. Even her Wikipedia page talks about it, although this is my favorite part, regarding her wedding:

        Luanne’s kid was rolling a reefer and dropping n-bombs and she didn’t come under fire. Most of the discussion was about what parent did she learn that from…and if Ramona was aware of what she was tweeting.

        I’m pretty sure that KG’s animosity towards SP began well before her reality show days; as a matter of fact I am almost positive I have heard KG use the expression “Tea Baggers” so I don’t understand how it can be denied there is definitely a political component to who she targets and why.

        • housewifeaddict says:

          Of course it’s political – and of course it’s for the national attention … that’s what she does – the most shocking thing she can do – I still love KG!!

        Oh, come on. A 16 year old’s Facebook fight hateful? That’s absurd. Going after a 16 yr. old is disgusting. As if Kathy G has never used the word. I’d love for someone to back through all her routines for the last 20 years, I’d bet money she’s said it in her act.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      Bristol was the one refering to gay people as FAGGOTS
      and that facebook incident wasnt the first time she had done that
      just using that word is considered bullying

            Don’t leave just yet…everyone once and a while the political stuff pops up but goes away as quickly as it comes on.

            Not everyone here has the same religious background, educational/work experiences, economical income and cultural or political beliefs….9 times out of 10 it doesn’t come up or make a difference.

            And when it does come up, it doesn’t always cause a stir-just have a nice drink and …it will be fine.

            PJ and I went around and around in another thread…a a new day and a fresh start helped clear up the air and a misunderstanding.

            If I left here in a huff over it, we wouldn’t have had the chance to fix it and I would be missing out on so much fun here.

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          LOL your post made me laugh so hard i spit liquid at the screen LOL
          i understand your point
          i just see red when i think of her doing such a thing

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        No it wasn’t it was Willow- and here are some screen shots of it.


        And since you mentioned it, the kid wasn’t gay (at least he doesn’t claim to be) .He was just a shit talker on facebook. I think he went to school with Willow.

        So NO- she wasn’t picking a kid for being gay but she and her family were shit talked for being Palin’s.

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          * No it wasn’t (Bristol)- it was WILLOW.

        • lillybee says:

          If one of the Obama girls had done the same think, I would hope that someone would call them out on it.

          • Rabble Rouser says:

            We can all speculate but none of us really know; but I don’t think KG would make the same platform out of it.

            • DJ Loops Fruit says:

              oh yeah she would
              You make not like Kathy but she is very good to the gay community so is her mom
              its not just an act they have both done many many things for us and it is much appreciated
              she would call b/s on anyone that would use that word

              somehow i dont see Obama using words like that in his house
              but i CAN see both Sarah and her hubby throwing them around and much worse

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          then both of her kids have done this because Bristol did it as well when she was still on dancing with the stars and it started because someone was attacking her mom

    • Adgirl says:

      @ Kashma I agree. I haven’t watched Letterman since he made that disgusting joke about ARod and the younger Palin girl. It’s not the kids fault that her mother makes a lightening rod of herself.

  18. error404 says:

    Kathy G is an insult comic in the classic sense, like Don Rickles and Joan Rivers. We’ve been listening to cry babies boo-hoo over insult comics being “mean” since they first became popular. What part of insult comic they don’t understand, the insult part, or the comic part, I don’t know.

    Kathy is NOT a political comic in the style of Jon Steward or Steve Colbert. Nor does anyone in the Palin family hold office. They are two reality tv stars with shows on rival tv channels. That’s all. Kathy pokes fun at lots of other fellow RTV stars…. Kate Goselyn and Heidi&Spencer to name a few.. and no one comes out screaming “She’s being too political! She’s being too political!” then.

    She also pokes fun at celebrity kids who put themselves out there. Dakota Fanning comes to mind. If the Palin kid wants to posts opinions on a website with public access, then she gets all she has coming to her. If she’s too weak to handle criticism, then her parents shouldn’t have allowed her the FB page. More bad parenting blamed on everyone else but the parents. Who do you think the kid learned those hate-filled ideas from? Not a comic! The Palins pushed their kids into the national spotlight and now cry every time someone notices the very kids they exposed publicly.

    • nancy says:

      Well put, Error. Totally agree.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      I WILL clap for you!

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      I get Kathy’s shtick but there is no way you are going to convince me her ‘jokes’ about the Palin’s aren’t meant to be personal or are part of a greater agenda.

      While she might not be a political comic, she is politically active and many of her jokes and the “victims” (subjects) of her jokes are reflective of her political views. When was the last time she cracked an Obama joke?

      Willow Palin is not a public figure in the same regard that Obama’s children are not. They didn’t elect themselves into the spotlight but are there because of wo their parents are. I completely understand and agree with what you are saying about them being exposed, especially given the stupid TLC show. In the same regard, I don’t feel guilty commenting about Kate Gosselin’s kids and their (bad) behavior- and the rude awakening they are going to be info. But I don’t dislike the Gosselin kids or make them targets in my jokes or rants.

      • indy anna says:

        Great response Rabble. Be careful, I think they’re out to get us.

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          I don’t feel like anyone is out to get me.

          I can see how you might feel the left is out numbering the right given the number of posts; but really what difference does it make? I don’t think anyone is going to change anyone’s mind here.

          I try not to get too deep into the politics here because as we all know, it’s one of those types of discussions that can get heated quickly.

          Tomorrow we will be talking about something else.

  19. DJ Loops Fruit says:

    ” He’s obviously never tasted a freshly roasted pig! ”
    I have but i dont wanna see the carcass before during or after eating it

    ” Apparently she tries on clothes without removing her existing clothes and Andy seemed to think that is how homeless people do it?”

    Lynn have you never seen a homeless person that is wearing lawyers of clothing
    having worked in midtown manhattan for close to 20 years i sure have

  20. DJ Loops Fruit says:

    “Kathy noted that Miami’s Elsa takes it to a new level. Elsa’s not a housewife, but a housewife’s mother so Kathy added that The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Alexis had giant bonkers – and wondered where that was in the bible.”

    Jo wasnt really a housewive either as she never married anyone on the show

    • HD says:

      What does that have to do with anything in regards to Jo?

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        elsa isnt a housewive she is ones mom
        Jo wasnt even related to one
        neither was Bethenny
        they werent really housewives they were just on a show called housewives

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          I see your point. But after Kim Granny G went all hog wild on Danielle it just seems like the periphery characters ARE a part of the cast, although in a secondary way.

          Personally I am fascinated with Elsa and her inability to enunciate properly because of all the plastic surgery. She is very OTT and I love it! gives a little spiciness.

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          I’m not sure if I am following the whole thing correctly, bu as long as we are tossing names into the hat of housewife that aren’t really housewife..neither is Gretchen.

          Also, since Vicki and Jenna worked outside the home….are they housewifes?

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            your right gretchen was just engaged not really a housewife
            Vicki & Jenna were wifes though i guess thats the stupid point i was trying to get at
            i know its not totally valid

  21. DJ Loops Fruit says:

    “I think it‘s just Andy‘s sick obsession with turning everyone gay. ”

    oh yeah im sure Bravos rushing over all sorts of exclusives for you now LOL

    Lynn no one can turn anyone gay not even a man as charming as Andy

    Tracy Young didnt TURN WIG gay she decided to explore that part of her nature all on her own

  22. DJ Loops Fruit says:

    “I think this was viewers attempt to show Cohen they won’t be made a fool of, this was clearly a poll that Andy thought would be a landslide in Kathy’s favor and viewers voted for Palin as a joke and a bit of slam at Andy’s ridiculous polls.

    and instead the veiwers made fools of themselves all on thier own
    i mean really you got to be brain dead to vote for that trash and weven if your doing it to make a point it still shows up as if to say people LIKE that trash

    • indy anna says:

      Trash? What trash? We could use that word on Kathy Griffith, almost any of the housewives but not on a someone who hasn’t even decided to run for office yet. We woman are sometimes the worst enemy of other women who strive to move ahead. Having a penis never was a good enough reason rule the country or serve their country. Our horrible jealousies take us to dark places. Instead of standing behind powerful women we strive to take them down. How sad.

      • Adgirl says:

        Kathy G and Palin are both unattractive examples of my gender. I don’t see how anyone can defend KG either.

        • Sha2000 says:

          Well said AD!

        • VAgirl says:

          You took the words right out of my mouth. I don’t like either one of them.

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          well i do defend her because of all the things she has done for our troups and the gay community
          i have yet to see anything positive come from Sarah
          i still blame her personally for that shooting

          • Rabble Rouser says:

            The shooting in AZ?

            Come on…that dude was a crazy LEFT winger. I very much doubt he was anywhere near any teaparty or conservative websites. Since they seized his computer, don’t you think they would have revealed that by now if he was?

            He was crazy and had a sick obsession with Giffords. It wasn’t inspired by the right..

            SP or the TeaParty/Conservative movement are in no way responsible for what happened. If blame needs to be assigned to an individual, lets start with the shooter. If it needs to be assigned to a group or a collective, I would suggested inadequate mental health services.

            Blaming SP for that is like saying Jodie Foster responsible for the attempted assassination on Regan.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        LOL im NOT a woman
        i would be behind a GOOD woman running for president
        i dont think Sarah is such an example i think she is vile and disgusting
        she didnt even finish her term for which she was elected
        sorry but i also find her to be evil
        and wish i had never heard her name

        • HD says:

          I have to amen you on that. Please do not make her the poster child for women in politics. She has no clue what she is talking about half the time yet somehow this woman has convinced half the country that her ice is colder than the one in your freezer. If anyone needs a memory check just youtube her and Katie Couric. It clearly speaks for itself. If that is a representation of strong women you can count me out.

          • Sha2000 says:

            Love it HD you summed up my thoughts exactly! I should clarify, I’m not a fan of Kathy Griffen but I Love her compared to how I feel about Palin…she has an IQ of a peanut. I never liked George Carlins comedy but I think he was brilliant, Kathy rarely makes me laugh but she’s clearly very bright.

  23. Adgirl says:

    Really OT. Click below if you want to see something funny. I live in Berkeley. There are a number of “street artists” (some people call them vandals) here. A unqiue one is a woman who basically makes yarn cozies for permanent street fixtures like fire hydrants. It’s hysterical.

    Here is one of her “yarn bombs” that she made this week for a bike rack.

    OT have not read 2day so hope I’m not repeating info just a little gossip enjoy:)ttyl

    • Kansas Girl says:

      It says he gave his new wife a gift of a million dollars — transferred it to her person account. How romantic!

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        Oh..how interesting especially since he claimed he didn’t have the 10 million Camille wanted upfront to allow the divorce to proceed without the assets being divided first- and poor Camille had to settle for 2.

        Maybe I am just the bitter type, but if it was me..there is no way I would have done what Camille did. I would have fought it until I got all my money.

      • Sha2000 says:

        With his kind of money 1 mil is an insult. How did he make so much anyway??? We pay our actors way too much in my opinion.

        • Sha2000 says:

          What a class act walking around with a toothpick hang out of his mouth.

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          most likely he got points in both cheers and frasier
          which with both still in syndicatian should keep him in young blondes till the day he dies
          or finally comes out of the closet whichever comes first

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Well, not only that, but he has another house for sale in the Hamptons.

    @BBLKs, Happy B’day, glad you are doing so well, your efforts are being rewarded for doing such great work, no one knows it better how tough this has been for you & no one knows how great it feels to be coming out the other side IE SUCCESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

  26. Rabble Rouser says:

    Is it just me, or is there a lot of tension on the board for the last couple of days?
    (I know I was part of it because I had a misunderstanding with PJ- which we have thankfully resolved).

    I think I am going to have a glass of Bailey’s (okay-not the real Bailey’s but the discount version Carolynn’s) Irish Cream…to help me unwind.

    Slainte to all of you.

                Almost like how they say people always act up in a full moon because like it effects tide heights- and that our bodies are mainly water so it has effects on us too.

  27. Christine says:

    Is it just me, or does Elsa look remarkably like the character “Vincent” from the TV series “Beauty and the Beast”?

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I can see that. I also think that maybe it is not all bad plastic surgery, I was thinking that maybe she had a stroke as well.

    • HD says:

      I can see that clearly and she reminds me of that woman that has had so much plastic sugery she looks like a cat. Also her head seems huge. I just do not understand having that much plastic surgery. At some point you have to look at your face and realize it is starting to look a little different.

      • quincyil says:

        She thinks she looks nice and that is what is important.

      • Zoey says:

        I think she looks like the cat lady too! I actually find Elsa hard to look at. Then again, I keep staring so I can figure out what exactly is off…..I wish they’d tell us so I can stop staring!

        • Bea from NJ (@sweeetbea on Twitter) says:

          I wish they would tell us what her deal is too!

        • HD says:

          “what exactly is off”? Ummmmmmm…everything. I understand if someone is born with an abnormality, etc. but to think you have distorted your face this much is unbelivable. She might be one of those people who look in the mirror and see something that is not there or something and who become addicted to plastic surgery.

  29. Kashma says:

    Let me be clear in saying I think any child of politics should be off limits. I think to do this is tackiness of it’s highest form and should not be tolerated no matter what the parents politics are. They didn’t ask for the spotlight. That was their parent’s choice.

  30. Juicy Joe is in the news alot today.
    Which Real Housewife’s Husband Was Celebrating Another Woman’s Birthday?

    Could there be less togetherness these days for a Real Housewife of New Jersey family? One male show regular was spotted in Atlantic City this weekend at a birthday party without his Housewife.

    So who was this guy—and who was he with?

    Teresa Giudice’s husband, Joe, was seen dining at the Steakhouse inside Harrah’s Saturday night, along with a long-haired brunette and other couples. The woman being feted wasn’t his wife—but looked a lot like her.

    The unknown gal pal could be a sister or a cousin of Joe’s? Or perhaps an old friend?

    “She looked similar to Teresa but younger,” a source tells E! News, “They seemed friendly. They were sitting next to each other and talking closely.”

    The group was celebrating the birthday the very same night Teresa was dining at the Stanton Social in NYC and seemed unconcerned.

    “Had dinner at Stanton Social tonight with great friends it was a good night…the food was excellent,” she tweeted.

    But could a deeper look at her Twitter show trouble brewing? The Bravo star, who blogs and tweets daily, hasn’t mentioned her husband online since November of last year.

    And sure, 2010 was a rough year for Joe, who filed bankruptcy in June and was jailed for charges stemming from his DUI in September.

    Teresa’s rep didn’t respond to requests for comment. A Bravo spokesperson also didn’t get back to us.

    Somewhere, though, we’re sure former castmate Danielle Staub has something to say about it.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        the ratings are huge do you really think hes gonna yank em off the air
        its funny the shows that most complain about the most here are the ones with the highest ratings

        • HD says:

          That is because most people will look at a train wreck but eventually even that will not hold your interest. I have been a loyal Real Housewive viewer and even I have grown bored. I am glad Lynn is not blogging about Miami because I would have felt compelled to watch. I feel so good that I have not been sucked into another show. Thank goodness. I don’t think I could have taken anymore. Bravo has too much of my damn attention. LOL!

  31. kbinldo says:

    Just caught Celebrity Apprentice on On Demand. I get a sneaking suspicion that Starr Jones made herself an alignment with Dionne Warwick & Nene. I bet that’s why they have a huge falling out, because as we’ve seen on Survivor time & time again, an alliance of three is really an alliance of two who are stringing the 3rd one along.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I’m thinking the same thing about an alliance because they were not even together in the first board room! The women are not a team in any sense of the word with too many big egos and diva attitudes.

      • Adgirl says:

        It was so obvious how Lisa was setup. Even NeNe admitted in her talking head.
        Lisa should have outed Dionne earlier as disruptive, a bigot against deaf people and that she insisted on the losing theme.
        Trump hates wimps so Lisa was fired.

        • kbinldo says:

          I wonder who Dionne pissed off on the production team. She is definitely *not* getting the Sweetheart Edit.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        nene WAS in the first boardroom i remember cause donald asked her a question

      I thought about that also!!!
