The Real Recap

Sunday’s Potomac Reunion

Image result for real housewives of potomac

There is a clear divide between the Potomac women; the seating chart obviously said so. The word of the reunion seemed to be “messy” and those three to Andy’s left were so so messy this season, especially Ashley. I don’t think I realized how much so until I watched some of it back and then through the discussion of it all. However, I definitely feel they are in tune with what is necessary, meaning they know how to stir the pot, throw shade, and make a show entertaining (Ashley, Robin, Gizelle) !! Speaking of shade, is Andy getting tired of hosting reunions? I say this because it seemed like his patience was extremely short and he couldn’t help telling the ladies when they were

Monday’s OC Poker Game

Image result for real housewives of orange county season 13 episode 5

I feel like I should have committed an entire post to this week’s RHOC because I have many thoughts. First, I am so here for the single Kelly and single Shannon friendship. I’m really glad Shannon was honest with Tamra about how she felt she bonded with Kelly. While I get why Tamra would be jealous, I think Kelly and Shannon understand what each other is going through and can really help one another through their divorces. Second, Emily is such a snooze fest, like why is she even a housewife? Third, at the beginning of the episode, was Gina at a flea market? Is she poor? Why is she even a housewife? Especially since all the other women have had “so many procedures!” Jaw DROPPED when she said that. Finally, everything I just wrote is really hard to watch and even harder to discuss when Eddie is going through some serious shit. I don’t keep up with Tamra on social media, so can someone research for me and see if Eddie’s on the road to a final recovery?

Dallas Taglines

Image result for real housewives of dallas season 3 taglines

I know that season 3 of the Dallas ladies premiered this week, and it’s saved on my DRV, and I promise to blog my thoughts once the season gets going (in fact, I’m kind of liking this “Real Recap” format). For now though, I’m too invested in RHONY on Wednesdays, and really can take only so many seasons at once. I will say though, I’m pleased there are no new ladies in Dallas, and with that let’s dive into my favorite taglines. Kameron’s is my favorite with “I’ve got heels that are higher than your standards.” Honestly girl, I feel the same way about some people. I always like a good Texas reference, such as Brandi’s “This isn’t my first rodeo, so I’m not taking your bull, ” and LeeAnne’s “You don’t mess with Texas, and you don’t mess with me.” I wish those two would be friends this season; here’s to hoping! D’Andra’s is fine because I get it has to do with her mom and their business (“Running a family business is a job for one tough mother.”), Stephanie’s is fine too, playing up the fact that while she may spend money, she’s not here for drama (“Investing in drama is not in my budget.”), but Cary’s is the worst and it’s probably because she herself, is the worst (“When life gets messy, just build a bigger closet.”). I love the Dallas ladies and am stoked to watch this season!

The Housewife Queens: Wednesday’s RHONY Finale

Following the most intense season of New York housewives ever will soon come the most intense reunion (or so I hear). What I didn’t hear was that a trailer of the reunion was officially released!! (See below).

As far as this week’s episode, I LOVED how it was centered around Luann’s cabaret: the women getting ready for the night, the show, and then the after party. She did great too! Obviously, it was way wrong for Tinsley to spill the beans to Dorinda regarding “invite-gate” (I still don’t understand why Scott was invited, but John was not) because obviously Dorinda would not let it go and thus would ruin Luann’s night … which she did! I remember seeing the video of Sonja’s dress coming off from that night (classic!) and I was very happy to see Ramona show Lu so much support. In closing though, all of Lu’s success on the finale made me sad knowing she missed the reunion and had to go back to rehab. All I do is wish her well!

Winners of the Week

Potomic Reunion: Andy
OC: Shannon & Kelly
Dallas: Kameron & LeeAnne
RHONY: Lu & Sonja

DVR Clean Out: Bravo & Bach Recaps

School starts tomorrow so on my last day of freedom, I’m posting up in front of the television to wipe the DVR clean!

Image result for binge watching gif

First Up: Bachelor in Paradise

Anyone else feel so insecure watching all the hot bodies on Paradise? I sat shoving tacos in my face as I watched them all slow motion run and make out on the beach. Ah, well anyway.

I am SO HERE for the guys on Paradise; I like them all, even Jordan (I’m a secret Jordan fan). Buuut, can’t say I was really excited to see any of the girls. I hate the Tia/Colton story line; Bach producers completely set them up by giving them both date cards, which is so unfair to everyone else.

Image result for roll eye gifs

As far as next week, I’d just like to see more couples form. Here’s to watching it go down!

Next Up: Potomac Housewives

While the Potomac women are not my favorite cast, this season hasn’t been completely boring. First off, their relationships. I wouldn’t want someone to come in and judge my marriage because you don’t know me, buuuut, these women put it all out for me to judge right? Even though Monique gets on my last damn nerve, I think she has the strongest relationship and I really like how Chris and her communicate. As a Housewife consesur, I have a strong feeling it’s not going to work out for Candiace and Chris; between her issues on being called a “princess”, his kids, and her mother, I see it ended by next season’s reunion (if she’s even asked back … snoore!) Finally, Michael and Ashley.  Ugh I love her, but they are very difficult to watch. I was shocked on the episode before the finale where Ashley admits she thinks Michael just wants her basically as arm candy. (Umm haven’t we all been thinking it this whole time?!)

Image result for monique samuels and husbandImage result for candiace dillard and chrisImage result for ashley darby and husband

In regardless to where the women stand with one another before Sunday’s reunion, I do think Ashley is messy by getting into Karen’s business, thus the reunion will probs be messy. However, Ashley and her green eyed pizza deliverers are still my favs on the show (and that fact that Karen didn’t get a pizza …?? Hmmm!).

Finally: Southern Charm Savannah

I know I know I know I said I wouldn’t be watching this season. But then Daniel started following MHH on Insta, and my girlfriends were talking about the Catherine/Lyle drama, so I caved. I’m not entirely caught up (I haven’t watched last week’s), however, I do have a few thoughts.

Image result for idea gif

I love Haygood; I think she’s a great addition to the show, and I’m so interested in her story: her sake, her art, her background. I also like Lyle. Anyone else think he looks like an old man? Even though he does, I’m still here to watch him. Would love for him to cut that ball and chain, also know as Catherine. She’s the worst (just admit you cheated on Lyle; anyone remember the guy at the beach last season?).

As I go farther down this Savannah rabbit hole (I had like four episodes recorded), I realize a bit why I didn’t want to watch the show in the first place. Borrrrrring. Here’s to seeing if I stick with it, would you?

Image result for southern charm savannah gif

In closing, with school starting tomorrow I may not be here as much as I know the thousands of fans would like. I will try to post at least once a week or in the moments I’m feeling inspired. As I always say, follow me on all social to hear my day to day thoughts!

#RHONY: I Can’t Even!

“Everyone knows Bethenny can be a nightmare! So what! She’s your friend!” 

I had planned to wait and blog about the Real Housewives of New York next week … you know, the boat ride we all can’t wait to watch? However, I’m currently six minutes into last night’s episode and I can’t stay quiet any longer!

Image result for cant be tamed gif

The fact that Dorinda and Carole have zero sympathy for Bethenny, when she clearly is going through something is mind boggling to me. For Dorinda to basically say Bethenny has burned all her bridges, that’s why no one is comforting her …. ? WHAT! Bethenny may be Bethenny, but if someone is your friend, and they are clearly hurting, you help them, support them, be there for them! 

Sonja seems to be the only one to care for Bethenny right now and Dorinda is even mocking that! I’m actually really glad Sonja is telling B everything the women have said; she is winning this season for me!

Image result for sonja morgan gif

The OGs

The divide between the ladies could not be more real and seeing Ramona, Sonja, Bethenny, and Luann reminiscing together at lunch is great, great, great! I didn’t know I needed it as much as Bethenny needed it!

Dinner

Let’s just jump right in, shall we? So first, there’s Sonja talking to Bethenny, about Carole asking about Bethenny, while sitting between Carole and Bethenny.

Image result for wait what gif

Oh wait, maybe Sonja is sitting next to Tinsley, not Carole? I’m so confused at this point, I mean Carole is smoking and wearing two feather earrings tonight instead of one, how can I not be confused? One thing that I’m not getting confused about … Dorinda spiraling. Her critiques of Luann in my opinion is not something their relationship can come back from. I wouldn’t forgive her if I was Lu.

Final Thoughts

I am not just Team Bethenny because she needs support with all the shit going on in her life, but because I completely agree with her analysis of Carole. Carole is “too cool for school” and has changed. She’s like that one girl at your job or in a friend group you just can’t connect with because you never feel like you’re good enough by her standards. Honestly, writer girl,  good riddance on your departure from the show after this season!

Image result for carole radziwill gif

As far as Dorinda’s behavior goes, have you ever drank too much and instantly had morning regrets the next day as you were eating a Pedalyte pop? After the Puerto Rico trip with B, how could she do this again? Does she not get insanely embarrassed? I mean, first Luann, then the finger raising comes out at Ramona. Quit throwing stones while living in a glass house Dorinda!

Image result for drunk dorinda gif

With Lu going back into rehab and all the news about Demi right now, I’m disgusted with Dorinda’s behavior at dinner. If someone is going to get that upset about a friend making a comment like “Oh here she goes …” when being served another drink, maaaaybe the person drinking has the problem.

In the words of many great housewives, “At the end of the day” we all have our issues, these women just put theirs on television for our entertainment. This week’s RHONY was epic and next week’s is going to be even more so …

Southern Charm Reunion: Part 1

Image result for southern charm reunion“Ba ba doo …”Image result for southern charm reunion

On an absent Thomas

First off, I’m SO GLAD Bravo addressed his absence and didn’t pretend this was a fluke thing. Thomas’s lawyer’s statement was total bs though; you know he would have been there in a heartbeat if he could have. Bravo totes made him stay home which was completely the right thing to do!

On Girl Power

SO HERE FOR IT and Craig didn’t need to roll his eyes about it either. Regarding JD and his wife, you can’t compare Naomie and Craig to them … JD and Liz are married (or were?)! But with that being said, SCREW JD! Later good ol’ boys!

Also, if you find anyone on social media who has had a Shepard encounter, you’ll learn quick that he’s disgusting and I highly doubt he “took stock” of his past behavior or “thinks about it more” now.

On Baby Palmer

YouTube videos?

Image result for southern charm gif

In all honesty, I think Cameran is going to be an awesome mom! I couldn’t be happier for her. I also loved how Kathryn was commenting and agreeing and bonding with Cam.

On Naomie and Craig’s relationship

What’s sadder: Craig’s bent finger or his pillows? So he’s not getting paid to practice law? Is he spiraling? I need answers! Everyone on the couches just looked like they wanted to tell Craig, “Bless your heart!” Throughout the season, a part of me was a little bit on Craig’s side. However, he reminded me on the reunion how delusional he is!

Screenshot 2018-07-19 at 8.37.46 PM

By the way, Naomie’s boyfriend is SO HOT! How Craig can say she’s not happy is absolutely f’ing crazy! NAOMIE AND METUL WERE IN FRANCE WHEN THE FRENCH WON THE WORLD CUP! She’s clearly living her best life. All of Craig’s answers (“I actually despise her and hate her”) and facial expressions on the reunion clearly showed how peanut butter and jelly he is!

By the way, Naomie girl, your nose looks great ! ! ! !

On Queen Kathryn

I am LIVING for her transformation! I don’t even have words to describe how high she’s risen and how amazing she is, especially alongside the fall and embarrassment of Thomas. (Karma anyone?) I would be so so so so so so so shocked to find someone in Charleston or on social media who isn’t #TeamKathryn!

On Cameran’s empathy towards Kathryn

Real tears on the Reunion couch and real tears on my own couch as I watched.

Coming up next week …

  • Kathryn & Shep
  • Chelsea & Austen
  • WHY IS TRASHLEY SITTING RIGHT NEXT TO ANDY INSTEAD OF A  BROKE LOOKING, FOUND IN THE BACK, PULLED UP CHAIR LIKE SHE DESERVES?! I hope they all ROAST HER!

Housewife Thoughts & OC Premier

Do your favorites change?

Or are you a ride or die girl for a particular housewife, no matter what she does? I only ask because with Orange County starting, I was curious to see where my feelings lie (lay? I don’t know …).

Image result for but first gif

This thought initially came to me when I was watching RHONY. I have said for years that Dorinda was my all-time favorite housewife, out of all cities. But I am just not feeling her this season, mainly because of how she’s been treating Sonja and Bethenny.

Image result for dorinda mean to sonja

Because of that, I am loving the Sonja/Bethenny friendship, which is so strange because Bethenny annihilated Sonja a couple seasons ago. I also was never a big Bethenny fan … yet I could not be more obsessed with the two! The scene where Bethenny was going over Sonja’s dating profile made me LOLOLOLOLOLOL!

Image result for sonja laughing

My RHONY world is shaken and my RHONY favorites are changing. Things look like they’re changing in the OC as well; literally the first 20 minutes were spent discussing new homes, new friendships, and new single statuses. After watching the entire episode, I think I’m going to be Team OG, meaning Vicki, Tamra, Shannon, and Kelly, mostly Kelly. I never ever ever ever thought I would like Kelly, but I think I’m going to enjoy watching single Kelly and single Shannon together this year.

Image result for shannon beador silent women

“Read between these lines” no more! 

I never like the new girls anyway, hence why I never really liked Kelly in the past. Tamra’s hiking/lawyer/party planner friend reminds me of a cross between Jeana Keough and Jacqueline Laurita. I’m not really here for her. The core four at the ropes course though,  totes here for it!

Screenshot 2018-07-17 at 5.17.54 PM

However, we have all season for feelings & favorites to change!

Image result for real housewives of orange county gif

I guess when it all comes down to it, if you’re a true housewife fan, your likes and dislikes should change every season, heck they could change from episode to episode. I only say this because we learn from the best: THE WOMEN! How wishy-washy are they? How many friendships evolve and change? Take each franchise …

What relationships haven’t broke?

RHOC: Tamra & Shannon?
RHONY: Sonja & Ramona?
RHOBH: Lisa & Kyle?
RHOA: umm…
RHOP: Gizelle & Robyn?
RHOD: Stephanie & Brandi?

Even these friendships have been tested throughout Bravo history. Heck, Teresa’s entire family fell apart! I mean, no relationship is safe if you’re a Housewife, and I think that means we as fans have every right to change favorites and stan someone new each season.

Image result for real housewives gif

It’s the Southern Charm Finale Ya’ll!

We’ve been waiting all season for this!

I mean, didn’t even the premier episode start by showing the footage from the ball and then did that whole “five months earlier” or whatever drama-tic-ness Bravo enjoys…??

Let’s get into it, shall we?!

Image result for southern charm gif

First Quarter

Okay to start it off, I can’t even LOOK at Shep’s face without thinking of the Facebook group The Jury Speaks; seriously GO JOIN IT for all the Bravo tea (there is a thread there on Shep; it’s seriously beyond gross!). Okay, moving on … the recaps with the music always get me LOL’ing!

Screenshot 2018-07-12 at 9.23.46 PM

Cameran is literally all of us laughing at Craig’s pillows. The tough love from her to him is so needed! I mean, not calling his life coach because he didn’t want to face his reality?? Get it together!

Image result for southern charm gif laughing

AS ALWAYS, Kathryn is winning the season, first discussing with Naomie how she was there for Thomas last episode. Then discussing the ball. Knowing now how Kathryn and Patricia are (like on Twitter), I’m not worried that Kathryn is going to do anything destructive. Go girl!

Second Quarter

I am just so anxious and giddy and excited to watch the shiz go down at this ball!

Image result for southern charm gif excited

I forget why Ashley is so mad at Kathryn because wasn’t Ashley the first to attack?! I think it’s just pure jealousy on Ashley’s part. Kathryn has Ashley beat before even confronted by her –> Kathryn researched “white tie” because she doesn’t want to mess up in front of Patricia.

“You go Glenn Coco!”

Image result for southern charm gif

Third Quarter

From the awkward exchange between JD & Elizabeth, to the talk of Ashley being an escort, to Austen calling Ashley Cruella de Vil to her face …

Image result for southern charm gif

Whhhhyyyy, why Austen are you going to tell Thomas what the girls are saying?! Here we go! (Freaking pot stirring Austen! Anyone see the video that got leaked of his girlfriend catching him in bed with two other girls? Apparently it’s an old video & they’ve “worked through it.”)

Image result for southern charm gif

Fourth Quarter

Austen: “Why am I being insulted?!”

Image result for southern charm gif

Duh Austen, why would you even bring it up?! At the same time, Ashley’s deserves everything and anything that would come at her this point. Let’s table her for now. I’m sure we’ll come back to Ashley being dramatic soon.

Image result for southern charm gif ashley

Sidebar, Kathryn scores another point for being so elegant with Patricia (when she really didn’t need to be). I’m glad K sat down and talked to her; she did great!

Overtime

Image result for southern charm gif ashley

An extra 15 minutes was added tonight because we need to see the K v. A fight to it’s entirety. After a very awkward (and tbh, a little sad) exchange between Naomie & Craig, here comes Ashley after Queen Kathryn. Whoa, I did not see Ashley apologizing … not that the moment lasted long.

Ashley is spewing liiiiiiiiiiiiiies!! Now she’s threatening Kathryn?! Gah, she’s beyooond delusional!

Image result for southern charm gif ashley

The update from Bravo was EV ERY THING! So happy Kathryn now has 50/50 custody!!

Guys, the reunion is going to be unbelievable! Not just for the fact that Naomie and Craig will probs come for one another, or that Thomas won’t be there and everyone knows why … but the entire cast is going to stick up for Kathryn against Psycho Ashley and it’s going to be AMAZINGGGGGGGGG!!!

I Binged Southern Charm New Orleans.

If I said it once (& I did! Read it here), I’ll say it again: Bravo has got to stop creating new shows and just play Housewife marathons all day. Or, maybe the only new shows that need creating should be Housewife franchises because I’m actually very much here for Potomac and Dallas. What I’m not here for? Any Southern Charm reboot.

Image result for southern charm savannah   Image result for southern charm new orleans

I saved all the episodes of Southern Charm New Orleans to binge watch once I was officially on summer vacation, and I have finally completed the season, so let’s get into it!

Image result for southern charm new orleans gif

Kudos to Whiteny Sudler-Smith or Bravo or whoever it is that is responsible for finding people clearly  thirsty enough to air all their dirty laundry on television. Like, did Barry & Tamica sit down with producers and say “Our marriage sucks” and that’s what got them on the show?? The same for Reagan and Jeff (who apparently are now separated), but I guess I’m getting a bit ahead of myself.

Barry & Tamica

Image result for southern charm new orleans barry and tamica

First, I love Barry; he’s probably my favorite on the show. I think he’s nice, handsome, honest (owned up to his verbal mistake on the show), and patient. He has got to be patient if he’s married to Tamica, who may be the absolutely worst main character on any Bravo show. Her whole, “I don’t start shit, I tell truths” mantra? Um, no you 100% start shit and butt into people’s business you have no ROOM to butt into. Watching Tamica really has taught me to mind my own business when it comes to other people. (“I did what he can’t do” in regards to Justin & his gf?? Girl bye!) She’s the most self-righteous, entitled person OUT THERE! She completely made the Easter dinner speech all about her and her daughter. However, she was right about one thing which brings me to…

Jon Moody

Image result for southern charm new orleans jon moody

In the first episode, I was really intrigued by Jon; I thought his paintings were awesome, he had celeb clientele, his body is crazy beautiful, he’s artsy, yet athletic, plus young. I just thought he would bring so much to a cast full of people who seemed to be more settled. Then, the paint party happened. When he said, “Fellas night does not mean only fellas around …” umm YES THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT IT MEANS. As a married woman, it isn’t a question of Tamica & Reagan not trusting their husbands … what it has to do with is respect. It was disrespectful of Jon to bring that many single women to guys’ night. Point, blank, period. As for the rest of the season? Meh, Jon was fine. I think he’d be more suited for maybe a Vanderpump, LA based, type show.

Justin

Image result for southern charm new orleans justin

“Wait a minute, wait a minute!” We need to talk about Justin. It seems like he took the Cameran role this season and “somewhat” narrated the show. I like Justin alot … I think the whole taking your girlfriend to live at home with your parents situation was weird, but his commentary on everything else was entertaining, plus he handled Tamica really well. His true fear of ghosts was hilarious too!

Jeff & Reagan

Image result for southern charm new orleans jeff and reagan

I don’t have much to say here because based off reports, the day after the finale aired the couple announced their separation. At first I found Reagan unbearable, until I saw more of Tamica, who made Reagan look not so terrible. I determined that Reagan is basically Corrine from Bachelor Nation … maybe just not as dumb? I mean her jewelry looks truly fabulous, and she seems to be kicking ass in law school. I feel SO BAD for Jeff in regards to his mother, family, financial situation, head trauma, possible drinking problem, and wife moving to the French Quarters away from him. I can only imagine what he’s going through now that they are separated. I wish them both happiness, but don’t really have more I want to discuss. They were just meh for me on the show.

Final Thoughts

The story line with Gian was interesting, but the more I reflected on it, the more I think it was just Tamica being drama in “hoping” Gian wanted to be her & have her life (reality check T … no one wants to be you!) Jeff & Reagan blamed their separation on the show, but like I said in the beginning of this post … the couple obviously had dysfunction going into the show and bragged about it so Bravo would put them on TV. What did you expect the outcome to be?

I ran a Twitter poll to all my Bravo loving friends asking if I should continue to watch the new season of Southern Charm Savannah (which I wasn’t a huge fan of first season). The poll came back 50/50, and I think I’m siding with the 50 who aren’t going to watch.

After two different cities of Southern Charm added to the Bravo lineup, I think only one reigns supreme!

Most Shocking Housewives Moments: Open the Bravo Vault!

The RHOC Season 13 trailer dropped yesterday and it got me thinking …

Through the years, what has been the most shocking Real Housewife moment for you? (Oh by the way, you can watch the OC trailer here!) Now I’m not talking story line that continued throughout multiple episodes, like Brooks’s fake cancer, Kim’s sobriety, or anything about Tom. I’m talking one moment. One moment where your jaw hit the floor, and it was hard to pick it back up.

Image result for shocked housewife

I came up with four moments that were unforgettable for me, plus a few honorable mentions. After reading, come find me on Twitter to discuss these moments and to discuss what more should be added.

The Wine Throw

In season 6 of the Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra stunned viewers with the splash heard around the West Coast. Tensions had been rising between Tamra and Jeana, and if I remember correctly it was because Tamra felt Jeana was siding with Simon over Tamra & Simon’s recent separation, or that Jeana was speaking to the press about it. Regardless, we all knew Tamra was a loose cannon, but I think she had an reaction even she didn’t see coming.

You can tell the argument is escalating, especially after Tamra throws the cease and desist letter at Jeana. But then, that wine throw. Even watching it back now my jaw still drops; Briana’s reaction is priceless too! After this unforgettable OC moment, throwing wine (& wine glasses) became a Housewife staple!

The Leg Toss

One illustrious woman from the New York Housewife franchise is Aviva Drescher; I mean “CALM DOWN! TAKE A XANAX” wouldn’t be one of the best comebacks if not for Aviva starting the fight in the first place. But the most memorable Aviva scene wasn’t when she told the story of how she got her artificial leg, but when she took it off and THREW IT ACROSS THE ROOM!

“The only thing that is fake or artificial about me … is this!” She slams the prosthetic on the table and then throws it on the floor! Oh my gosh, that quote could not be any more iconic! I just hope she had her pedi done for that toss!

The Reunion Drag

On season 6 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, Housewives fans got their first taste of physicality. We were teased and teased that something major would be happening on the reunion, but when the whole thing finally played out, it was IN SANE!

I am not one for physical violence ever, but even watching it back now, how can Kenya not see she provoked Porsha? Oh gosh and Andy yelling, “No, no, no!” over and over makes the whole thing even crazier!

The “Beast” Comment

Kim Richards is not afraid of a confrontation, but I think this by far has to be my favorite of hers. I know this was on a vacation but I don’t remember what city, what season, or what the ladies were even arguing about. What I do remember is the infamous quote from Kim.

I could watch this on an endless loop! If Kim using “beast” as an insult isn’t funny enough, Eileen’s “I’m so proper, did you just say that?” reaction makes it even better. I definitely think “beast” is going to go into my bag of insults next time I get heated with someone.

Honorable Mentions & Best Quotes

The Real Housewives franchises are a television staple, and will withstand time because they never cease to shock us. I know these are not the only lasting moments the ladies of Bravo have brought us. With that being said, I wanted to include a few more iconic moments, that even non-Housewife fans probably know about.

Image result for dont call me honey gif  Image result for dont call me honey gifSometimes all I wish Bravo would do is take a cue from E! and play past seasons of the Housewives on a loop, in a similar fashion to how E! basically only airs Keeping Up With the Kardashians. I know many times you can catch Housewives marathons, but how nice would it be to know that any time in the day (minus the prime time spots), you could watch past seasons of RHOC, RHONY, RHOA, RHOBH, & RHONJ. Think how many more fans could be gained as well! There is just too much history for it not to be shown on continuation. Think about it Bravo, just think about it …

I Have a Few Thoughts … Bravo Edition

If you’re a Bravo Television fan, raise your hand!

Image result for raise hand gif

On Sunday, Andy Cohen’s 50th birthday celebration took place in the clubhouse on Watch What Happens Live. If you didn’t watch it, go find it on demand RIGHT NOW! Andy’s good buddy, John Mayer, came out to host and it rekindled my love for John Mayer … he’s everything! Their friendship is everything! When he sang “It’s My House” for Andy (the Diana Ross song) as an homage to the clubhouse?!?!? So SWEET! Andy was genuinely surprised with all the guests, videos, tributes, etc. This episode of WWHL proves how special Andy Cohen is to so many people, but most importantly how special he is to all us Bravo fans! (Oh, and JM, you MUST release Ms. Ross’s song because it was an epic cover!)

Image result for andy cohen 50th birthday

On Thursday evening, the aftermath of the Hilton Head trip was shown on Southern Charm. I didn’t do a post regarding that HORRENDOUS confrontation between Ashley and Kathryn, so here are my thoughts. About a month ago, I saw Ashley on The Morning Toast and figured if Jackie & Claudia can give her a chance, then so can I. However, she talked extremely fast, seemed defensive, and acted like she had so much to prove. Not too much after that interview came Hilton Head, which was on a completely different level.

I’m not going to rehash that whole conversation; I’ll just say this: Ashley was 100% in the wrong, and I couldn’t be more proud of how poised Kathryn was! After watching the most recent episode, Ashley is continuing to be a terror. I just can not, CAN NOT, see how Thomas is still with her after this season. Maybe he’s like Scheana and only watches scenes of himself?? Whatever, he got fired anyway so why do I care? He’s a creep right along with psycho Ashley; they can have one another.

Okay, now on to what we all want to discuss: JAX AND BRITTANY ARE ENGAGED!!!! I just happened to get on social media last night, about 40 minutes after she posted the photo below. Then today was an endless stream of Instagram video watching from the entire Vanderpump cast, because apparently there was a surprise engagement party for the couple. Although, based on what everyone was posting, it all seemed to center around Brittany, no one really posted anything about Jax hahahahahaha!!!

My thoughts: I figured eventually they would get engaged, but to actually see a ring on Brittany’s finger was shocking to say the least. The ring is freaking gorgeous; good job Jason! I listened to Stassi’s most recent podcast episode, where Katie was her guest and all they talked about was the Royal Wedding. Katie kept saying, “Out of all of us in the group, you’ll be the next one married” (meaning Stassi). Who knew it would be Brittany?? Then again, an engagement ring doesn’t necessarily mean a wedding … we all watch The Bachelor correct?

In closing with these two, I really do believe Jax has changed since the passing of his father. I think he finally realizes what is important in life and I really want to believe these two will make it. Good news is, all of this was filmed for Season 7, so we’ll just have to wait & watch to see how it all plays out!

This has been a full week for Bravo television, between these three events, plus the airing of Luann’s arrest (which I was a little disappointed by; the preview for it was way more intense than the actual episode).

As always, I love tweeting, commenting, and discussing these D-list stars’ lives with all of you! One of my favorite tweeters and podcasters said it best …

 I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!

“Holidazed & Confused” RHONY S10 E9

In this pocket- sized edition of Ra-hony, I want to cover four things…

  • the continuation of the Carole & Bethenny fight
  • Luann’s finding out about Tom (again)
  • Ramona yelling at Bethenny
  • “Next time on the Real Housewives of New York”

Point 1: Am I the only one confused about this fight? Is it just because Bethenny called Adam an operator? Is it because Carole didn’t support Bethenny with Puerto Rico? Is there something deeper we are missing? OH! What about Carole dragging Luann into it (“You called Luann a loser!”) & Lu and B almost squaring off (which luckily they got over quick) ??? How funny was it though, when Carole and Bethenny started round two as the girls were partying downstairs LOL LOL LOL LOL !!!! And after all of it, I think they made up in the end? Does anyone know for sure? Oh well, B liked my tweet (see below), so I’m team Bethenny all the way!

Point 2: “And he has some busted up, banged up girlfriend!” This whole scene could not have been better: the “keep quiet” head shake by Ramona, Bethenny’s use of the the terms ‘girl code’ & ‘uncool,’ and the ending with Lu calling him a dick, exclamation point … PRICELESS! What makes it even crazier is we all know this leads to what happens in Palm Springs over Christmas Eve, as Luann discussed taking her soon to be infamous trip.

Point 3: First off, WHY IS HER DOG IN THE STREET? Maybe that wasn’t the first thing you noticed, perhaps instead it was Ramona answering, “This is Ramona” like, do you not have Bethenny saved in your phone? Per their conversation, Ramona totally enjoys when other people argue! (umm, who threw out the word “puppet” in regards to the Bethenny/Carole fight??) Ramona also immediately ran to Carole at the blood drive, spewing that Bethenny thinks Carole’s lonely & sad … but lastly, what might be most noteworthy here is the iconic Ra. mon. uh. yell. ing. at. some. one. sound. ing. like. a. type. write. rrrr. mom. ment! (Head tilt, head tilt, head tilt). “Oh. my. gosh. Beth. enny! You. do. not. su. pport. other. women!”

Point 4: Thinking the episode was over, I looked forward to watching the “next time” moment, but quickly learned I was not ready;  I was left SHOOK!!! THE MOMENT HAS COME FOR LUANN’S ARREST AND BRAVO PLAYED A NEVER BEFORE SCENE PORTION OF THE FREAKING POLICE VIDEO ON THE NEXT TIME SEQUENCE!! THEN, the news footage was played, where you can clearly see she’s wasted; did you know the judge told her to stop drinking and to get a lawyer ? I didn’t. THEN, all the girls were gossiping gossiping gossiping. Next week’s episode is going to be TELEVISION CHANGING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
