RHOC Thoughts?


Well. Just when I’m starting to hate Dodd less, she ruins it. She can be funny, supportive, all that good stuff but her temper, that temper and the evilness that comes out of her face-I can’t. 

Lydia is turning into quite the bitchy mean girl this season. I’m not sure I like this Lydia. And where are Dougs socks? He hasn’t worn socks once. Is it a Miami Vice tribute? If she cries and cackles about “cutting off his balls” one more time….She just sounds so stupid, I get she thinks it’s cute, but it’s completely inaccurate and I almost feel like she’s passive aggressively emasculating him. It’s just obnoxious because a vasectomy isn’t equal to castration. I don’t like her mean girl crap towards Shannon.

Ah-Shannon. When did she become so needy? Demanding Tamra drop her cake and come running because she beckoned? She never has been able to hide turmoil in her private life-she always acts out and I guess this is one way. I can’t dislike her though-she’s flawed and she knows it, she doesn’t try to hide it. As if she could.

Vicki. Is her time up yet? She’s all about angry indignation at being called a liar, she does not lie, people-she’s on an ETHICS committee, ok? But I do believe the entire reunion last season was Vicki admitting to “fabrication” and apologizing for, well, lying. She does this dumb damsel act where she pretends to not understand something and tries to get all cute and helpless about it-anyone notice? 

Peggy-I do not think we’ll see Peggy in another season. I don’t think she’s meshing with the other cast members and she has no real storyline. I think her husband is more excited to be on the show than she is. She’s just kind of boring-and clearly has no time for the nonsense which isn’t going to work. You have to have nothing BUT time for the nonsense.

I’ve always liked Meghan. Even her first season when a lot of ppl hated her, I liked her. I think she gets unfair crap for not spending every second with Aspen, but to be fair, we don’t know how many actual days she spent shooting and as far as her drinking, she pumps before, and pumps and dumps. A lot of women do that. She is kind of a shit stirrer.

Tamra hasn’t really been that obnoxious-it’s obvious that Shannon feels super threatened at the possibility of Tamra and Vicki making amends, and I feel like Tamra plays stupid about it-I don’t think that there’s a friendship to fix, personally. Vicki is going to keep gossiping, and Tamra is going to stay mad about it so just stop pretending there’s anything to mend.

Shahs Of Sunset’s Trickery

WordPress is really really trying me.

Ok. Trying again for the 5th time..

This week on Shahs, we meet Tara, who Shervin has allegedly been cheating on Annalise with for 5 months. Tara is married to Rob, who has thrown her out upon finding out.

I’m looking at Tara and having a Destiney moment-I’ve seen her before in another show but can’t remember which? In Destineys case it was “People’s Couch”. Then I placed her-she and Rob were on “Newlyweds: The First Year”. Rob was controlling AF, and was a recovering addict that rebuilt his life from nothing into a successful and lucrative career. Tara was a seemingly neurotic, spoiled, high maintenance chick, I believe Rob was her second marriage and her parents were none too pleased. I * think infidelity was an issue in her first marriage as well but it’s been a while, I’m not sure. They had a weird dynamic mainly based on money, and she ruined their very expensive, luxury honeymoon by refusing to get on the plane. She was scared to fly over the water, or fly period-can’t remember.

So who do you believe? Shervin or Tara? Did he have an affair?

I think he did. Why would she make that up and have her husband find out? Shervy has everything to lose by admitting it. Come on Sherv-we all KNOW.

Some photos to refresh your memories 😉

Trouble in RHONY Paradise?

Have Carole and Adam hit splitsville? She’s unfollowed him on Instagram (I can’t believe this is how people find out relationship status now-seriously) and reports are that they may be dunzo.

I like Carole-and if it’s true I hope Luann doesn’t make a gloating peep, under the circumstances. If you ask me, Lu getting all indignant and up in arms over Carole and Adam was a stretch, and not for a second do I buy that it was allegiance to her niece. I think Luann at the time was suffering from good old fashioned jealousy.

Anyhoo-DM link below:

RHOC Post Mortem: Its Either My Way or the Feng Shui

Well-THAT’S a long title.

Shannon is getting ready to Feng Shui the place-my dog is going apeshit barking at Archie. He thinks that dogs on TV can hear him and are afeared. Not. Elaine, the Feng Shui expert, tells Shannon she needs all new things. Shannon says that things with David are stressed. There’s a toilet in her “relationship corner” and that’s gotta be fixed.

Vicki is talking about packing the office to move to a new space, her assistant tells her to calm down but that’s not in Vicki’s DNA. She makes a federal case over everything. Meeting with the interior designer is a treat-Vicki says Shannon’s Feng Shui is a crock.

I’m beginning to agree when Feng Shui lady starts saying the sink is female, the stove is male-come on. This is too much.

Aspen is fussy-Jim tries to intervene. Aspen has the farts. They’re packing to go home. The dog, named Girly Girl, has clearly been demoted to licking spit up off the floor and being threatened by Jim to be tied to the bumper by her leash. Babies. Hmph. Meghan feels like she’s in the middle of 2 warring factions between friends but Jim is more concerned with what’s for dinner.

Lydia and her husband are on location for a photo shoot. Hubs says if he met Lydia he’d approach her with a lump of sugar in his palm, fingers out of the way. Ouch. But pretty funny. They have a new magazine called Nobleman. Yawn. I don’t think Doug is wearing socks again. So an Oreo colored Rolls pulls up, I think this is when we meet Peggy. She’s with her husband Diko. Peggy just had some kind of surgery so Doug warns Lydia not to hug. Diko and Peggy are the subjects of the article and shoot. Peggy has sort of teased hair a la Melania Trump. Apparently Peggy just had a double mastectomy for preventative reasons.

Tamra is with Ryan, Sarah (they’re still together?) and Ava at a ranch in the rain. It’s Ava’s birthday so I predict some sort of pony rides. Oh wait-it’s just party planning for her birthday. It’s only the kids 2nd birthday and they’re having a tiger, zebras, and other exotic animals that should be frolicking in Africa or wherever, not gawked at by overindulged toddlers. I digress. Sarah and Ryan are irritated with each other and Sarah wants beer. Tamra and Sarah discuss the guest list for Ava’s party, and much to Tamra’s dismay, Briana is invited. Tamra says she’s cut ties with Briana as well. (It’s a kids party-Briana has kids, big deal!). Tamra is afraid it’ll be awkward. She unfriended Briana on social media without an explanation which she admits was immature.

Ugh, here comes Dodd. She’s going to work out with Michael. She says things are better with them. While driving Michael almost gets into an accident. They make it to the gym alive and get to working out with their personal trainer. She says she can relate to Shannon as far as working on her marriage.

Shannon is baking cookies and Sophie is getting her makeup done. I wonder how long before we see the Beador girls “modeling”? Sophie and her friend are getting ready for winter formal. Shannon reminds Sophie to cross her legs when sitting, because “that is a flippin’ short dress”. David hasn’t seen it yet. Shannon is crying thinking where has the time gone, her babies are all grown up…she burned the bread/cookies or whatever. Sophie makes her entrance and she looks pretty. David, as expected thinks the dress is too short. It’s actually tasteful, I think. Other parents and kids arrive for pics. Shannon is embarrassing shrieking at the kids to mingle. The limo takes off for formal. I’m sure the kids are relieved.

We get a mini tour of Peggy’s house. It’s big, the typical southern CA Mediterranean looking big house. Peggy is Armenian, born in Kuwait, and lived in SoCal for 10 years. She’s been married for 21 years and has 3 kids. Her husband has a luxury car empire. Peggy is having a luncheon for the family, she has had some health issues-she had breast cancer and instead of messing around just had the double mastectomy since her mother died from breast cancer. At the luncheon, her husband gives her an 85k diamond necklace and a 70k diamond bracelet. Niiiice. She totally looks like Melania Trump to me.

Vicki is at Briana’s visiting, and Briana breaks the news to Vicki that they’re going to Ava’s birthday party. Vicki looks not happy. Briana doesn’t want to hear any anti-Vicki sentiments, she hasn’t seen Tamra in a year. Vicki tells her to just leave if she’s uncomfortable.

The party for Ava is underway-its a little girls dream party with unicorns and cakes and cookies everywhere. Lydia is there with her mother, then Briana arrives. Sarah and Eddie greet her warmly-where’s Tamra? I guess they’re just going to avoid each other. Lydia’s mother is still fairy dusting people-good thing Ryan is still in OK. Briana leaves because it’s just too weird. Come on, Tamra. That was classless.

Shannon and crew arrive, Shannon and Lydia meet. Lydia is fake AF to me, she starts bringing up Vicki right away. Lydia introduces Shannon to Judy-Shannon isn’t about having fairy dust or confetti or anything thrown on her. Judy loves Shannons energy and throws confetti at her.

Everyone sings Happy Bday to Ava, who could not care about this huge party, give her some cake and a bib, and it’s probably all the same to her. She’s 2. Lydia brings Vicki up to Shannon and Tamra again, Shannon tries to warn Lydia about the allegations that Vicki made. Lydia tells them they’re behaving just like Vicki. Shannon stomps the brakes on that. Lydia needs to mind her own business, really.

Lydia wasn’t involved, she doesn’t know what happened, she needs to shut her mouth. Shannon is not feeling Lydia. She’s yelling at you, Lydia, because you’re so out of line. Doug shoes up and Lydia is relieved. Shannon calls David over to meet Lydia and Doug. Tamra realizes it isn’t going well. Lydia tells her mother that Shannon “screamed” at her for no reason-exaggerate much? Just decides Shannon is a lost soul. Shannon apologizes to Tamra for possibly offending Lydia, and Lydia rounds up her crew to leave. As she’s saying goodbye, Tamra tells Lydia why Shannon got upset, as Shannon eats. Lydia wants to talk to Shannon, and she exaggerates again about screaming and yelling. Tamra tries to intervene but Lydia is being an asshole. Lydia just gets more rude, and decides they aren’t going to get along or go to dinner or anything. Tamra tries to intervene again, but it’s hopeless as Shannon storms off saying “I’m done”. Well.

Next week: Peggy speeds, Shannon hits the gym, Shannon V Lydia V Dodd, Dodd is up to her rude self, Shannon loses it.

Shahs of Sunset Post Mortem

They’re baaaaack-

Oooo MJs new condo. Doesn’t she live next door to her mom or something? Sounds like Tommy still isn’t a fan of Vida. MJ says she needs to remodel. Oh wow-Vida does live there.

Now we are at Mike’s new bachelor pad. Since he’s a bachelor. Again. Love the spiral staircase, I’m such a sucker for a spiral staircase. His bedroom is meh. Plain and weird. But Mike is weird, so. His dogs are penned up on an upstairs patio. I don’t love that, but hey, who knows. We have to reminisce about Jessica-yawn. Reza helped Mike decorate his house. I figured it wasn’t all Mike. He talks to his mom several times a day-no thanks.

Reza! He’s meeting Asa. She’s about to drop the bomb on him-the pregnancy bomb. I’m so happy for her. She’s 21 weeks and kept it secret all this time. Everyone is thrilled. Reza had no idea. They’re pigging out on 2 of everything from the happy hour menu. Asa and MJ have not made amends, and Asa is uninterested in having negativity around her right now.

Vida is at MJ and Tommy’s. This won’t end well, I predict. Vida doesn’t like the boxes from unpacking and lack of coffee table. She’s been there 3.6 seconds and already going in. Tommy SNAPS on Vida-apparently MJ’s father had a stroke and is in hospital-Tommy feels like with all that going on, Vida cares about boxes?!? Vida isn’t happy. She starts yelling, Tommy starts yelling-good lord. Vida leaves. MJ wants a baby in all of this.

GG and her friend are taking a meditation class. GG has taken the last 6 months to herself. She recognizes her temper and after she assaulted Adam she checked into rehab. Does she not drink? That would be realllly good. Oh wait-she does drink. Just not as much. Oh well, I guess that’s better than where she was. Oh my lawd-they’re all screaming-what in the what? No. Now they’re writing down ppl thecwant to forgive, GG writes herself, then they burn it.

Asa is going for an ultrasound with her mom-Asa needs a bunch of vaccines but she’s not feeling that. She refuses the flu shot because she doesn’t want “poisons”. It’s actually called “antibodies” but ok. Jermaine is vegan, so the baby probably will be because gorillas and elephants are vegetarians and they’re strong, so there.

Reza and Adam are going to get tennis lessons. Reza is being a good husband because he’s not all that crazy about tennis. Adam twists his ankle, game over for him. Adam wants a baby now. They keep calling each other “honey” and it sounds forced. Reza wants to wait on the whole baby thing.

Shervin! Shervin and his cousin are having a “bro-b-q”. Enter Mike. Shervin has. Girlfriend named Annalise. She’s blond and tiny. Reza arrives! Mike wants to have his housewarming party this week and is planning it alone but Reza is horrified that Mike doesn’t have a planner. He calls it “ghetto-Mike-style”. Mike agrees to get a planner. Reza asks who’s invited, Mike says GG and Reza can’t. He thinks she’s dangerous, doesn’t want to be in the same room as her, and hasn’t forgiven her for starting the sex tape rumor about him. I can’t say I blame him-she was pretty treacherous. Mike decides not to invite her just to avoid the drama.

MJ is picking up Reza and his ” to-go libation”. She won’t tell him where they’re going-it’s a surprise. Oh it’s a spa! Aaaand they’re having anal bleaching done. Really? First-I pity the fool who does THAT for a living. Second-why? MJ and Reza are talking GG, MJ isn’t in a forgiving place towards her either. Their whole anal bleaching process is way TMI, way too much, and oh my lawd. The waxing lady is funny though. Oh wow. Now MJ’s turn. I can’t. Never ever would I 1) have my asshole bleached 2) have my friend/husband/anyone peering at it while being done. That would happen on the planet of Nope.

Mike is vacuuming and prepping for his party. He wants everyone to see that he’s really moved on. Really. The party planner, Destiney shows up-I’ve seen her before. She’s definitely been on another show-i can almost remember but not really-it’s on the tip of my brain. Dammit-what has she been on? Driving me nuts. I KNOW!!!! People’s Couch!!!! She was on People’s Couch. Phew. That was making me nuts.

Adam and Reza are getting ready for Mikes party-Adam predicts that when MJ finds out Asa is pregnant she will be “very hateful and resentful”. Bingo. Reza disagrees-but we’ll see. I can’t wait to see MJs face. But MJ IS dressed like a stuffed sausage. I’ll give her that.

Mike has scantily clad women wearing lampshades on their head standing around. This is super dumb. No, Destiney. Guests are arriving-MJ humps the couch. Reza approves of the house. Now Shervy-Sherv and Annalise arrive, followed by Asa with food. MJ is rude, and doesn’t want to be friends with Asa. MJ resents Asa for keeping her relationship private. Let’s see whos relationship lasts longer, MJ. Asa is smart. MJs outfit is horrible. It’s way too small. Mike says GG is looking better and healthier. Asa changes the subject by showing off her new pregnant belly, everyone is surprised and happy for her. Maybe not MJ. Adam pushes MJ for a hug and it’s so awkward.
Asa faces the inquisition from MJ about religion, marriage, living arrangements….

MJ runs off to cry. And drink heavily. Mike is trying to comfort MJ, and the conversation is weird and stupid. I think MJ is pretty drunk already.

MJ is overhearing Asa talk about her pregnancy etc and decides shots are in order. Several. Time to take MJ home.

MJ wants a baby too, she cries to Reza. Mike toasts Destiney for the party and Asa for the baby. MJ wants Reza to share in her baby lust, then she leaves. Reza has some words of wisdom.

Next week: Tortoise sex. Another party with scantily clad women. MJ drinks. The return of GG. Asa faces nosy questions.

Shocking News! (Sarcasm)

As Page Six (and Get Out) reported yesterday, there’s allegedly trouble in Paradise in the D’Agostino marriage. Control your shock and surprise, y’all. I had actually thought it would last at least a year. Oh, Lu. I’m not going to say we told you so, but….

RHONY Discussion Thread 7/5

Oh, Ramona. Is it your mission to become as unlikable, unrelatable, and snobby as possible? All of the ranting about Aspen? Girl bye. And treating that ski instructor like a servant while flirting-it was the strangest combo I’ve seen, and oogy AF.

What did you think of Luann and her “I’m sooooo glad I’m married” comment at dinner? I found it pretentious and condescending-she’s been married 30 seconds and not only wants special treatment from the women that weren’t good enough to invite, but come ON. Yeah, you’re married. Congrats blah blah. Tom is loyal and faithful too. Mmhmm. Stop trying so hard, Luann-it might be more believable.

Jason-what’s going on with his court case, anyone know? Last I heard he was offered a deal that included anger management and he refused it. He doesn’t need AM, he says? Sure about that, Hoppy? You seem pretty miffed and since he seemingly can’t control himself, I dunno. Should be interesting.

I feel like it’s almost a kinder, gentler Bethenny. She’s been apologizing left and right when she messes up, and she seems less in the fray. I don’t blame her for 86ing Ramona, I really don’t.

The Friday 3

I thought we could do something fun on Fridays, a top 3 favorite post? Like every Friday I can do a what were your top 3 favorite-(blank). It’s a nice way to end the week, no?

This weeks top 3 is: What are the top 3 concerts/live performances you’ve seen?  I’d have to say mine are these-

1) Michael Jackson at the Hartford Civic Center in 1988. I don’t think that needs explanation. 

2) Guns N Roses at the same venue, 1992. I had 4th row center. It was awesome.

3) Tori Amos, Toads Place, New Haven CT 1992 her “Little Earthquakes” tour.

Honorable mention: Alice In Chains, The Channel in Boston MA.

What are yours? We’ll do a different top 3 every Friday, sound good?
