“No Children, No Parents, No Husbands” — We Gotta Talk About Jersey!

Tequila, monkeys’ assholes, & broken glasses

Jersey is BACK! After many seasons of snoozeville, The Real Housewives of New Jersey has returned with the heat … and I’m not just talking about the weather in Mexico.

Let’s begin with that first dinner in Cabo… 

I think it all starts with Jennifer drinking. Listen, do I blame her for getting white girl wasted in Mexico? Hell to the no … we’ve all been there. I gave myself a black eye once in Mexico when I slipped and my face broke my fall. However, Jennifer calling Teresa’s gift ugly (drunk or not) was inappropriate and rude.

I also find it interesting that Margaret can say whatever she wants in response, fully sober, and yet for me, she’s never wrong. The obvious housewife response to Jennifer’s necklace attack is a returned below the belt comment. The Marg did what the show asks of her with the whole lip liner looks like a monkey’s asshole comment.

And while I may be Team Margaret (& probably always will be), Jennifer’s response of “Yeah, a monkey’s asshole, that you f***ing sucked, probably!” will forever go down in housewives history along with

  • “Get off my jock”
  • “Who gon’ check me boo?”
  • “Jesus jugs”

and “Prostitution whore!” You can watch the women’s reaction to the whole argument here.

Honestly, thank you ladies. It was amazing television.

But wait, we aren’t done …

The sun did come out eventually and tempers cooled off, yet, round two was coming. While the ladies did enjoy some pool and shopping time (who takes their Chanel bag out on the streets of Mexico?), at the second dinner (was it really only the second dinner?), Marg and Jennifer were back out at it again. I don’t even remember how it all got brought up, but in true housewife fashion, past comments never really die. The conversation turned to the remarks Jennifer had made about Margaret’s mother cheating with a married man, as Margaret did herself. The Marg fired back with comments about Jennifer’s husband sleeping in the pool house and having a girlfriend.

Relive that here.

Anyone who thought Margaret was a terrible human for the comments she made at this dinner is so wrong because The Marg immediately apologized when Jennifer returned to the table (what, less than 10 minutes after making the mean comments), and told Jennifer she said them just to hurt her and there was no truth in the comments. This is honestly huge because apologies in the housewives’ world can take weeks, months, and even years to produce. Margaret admitted right away she was wrong.

While it seemed the dust was finally settling in Cabo, a hurricane called Danielle Staub was brewing, and broken glass, threats, & fueled tempers would be left in her wake.

Image result for margaret josephs and jennifer aydin mexico

If you haven’t caught on yet this season, please realize in New Jersey, you do not mention children, parents, or husbands in an argument. Danielle is so slimy, of course she brings up Margaret’s children (& even her grandchildren) in an argument that I’m not even sure where it started in the first place. (Can’t these ladies have one nice dinner on vacation?). Margaret being the queen of the trip she is, took Delores’s wine (because why waste her own drink) and threw it at Danielle. My favorite part of this whole scene was by the time everyone stood up and Danielle was ready to retaliate, Margaret was already walking up the stair, sashaying in that green dress of hers.

Image result for margaret josephs and jennifer aydin mexico

“Had Danielle talked about my children, she’d have no teeth left.”

“Teresa, this one [points to Danielle] has you going in f***ing circles.”

The drama didn’t stop there because Melissa then got upset that someone broke or threw a glass at her (while she was pointing fingers at Danielle and Jennifer). This led to crazy-eyed Jennifer to break another glass, hold a shard of it at Melissa, and say something along the lines of “if I threw a glass at you, you’d know”

Image result for jennifer aydin mexico

Yeah … that man in the scene? That’s security.

Image result for holy hell gif

Who’s exhausted at this point and just wants to fly home to Jersey? On this week’s episode the girls did just that, and even appeared to eventually all make up: Teresa and Melissa, Teresa and Margaret, Jennifer and Dolores, Jennifer and Melissa. But where was Danielle?

The Danielle of It All …

Image result for danielle staub mexico

This shady bitch (in my opinion) is the sole cause of many arguments this season. You can “boo hoo” all you want about how horrible she was treated on social media regarding her behavior on the show, but honey, you signed up for all this.

Image result for don't call me honey gif

First, her treatment of Margaret and all the women at her wedding was absolutely atrocious. While she did apologize for it on WWHL with Andy, still not okay. After her wedding, she was still twisting words to show Margaret in a terrible light with the other ladies. And finally, at the explosive, glass shattering dinner in Mexico, Danielle was the one to bring up the Marg/Jennifer fight (which had already been squashed), and then wouldn’t let the conflict go by taking it to another level discussing Margaret’s kids.

Image result for you're garbage joe gorga gif

I have nothing even left to say about Snobielle Stupid Staub; we’ll let her run her mouth at the reunion. Speaking of the reunion, it sounds like it’s set to be explosive, AND it’s sooner than you think because next week is the RHONJ season finale.

Image result for real housewives of new jersey sad gif

Overall, this season has redeemed New Jersey as queens in the housewives’ universe and I can not freaking wait for the next coming weeks as we wrap up it all up!

 

Atlanta Takes Tokyo

and Marlo loses her bag …

Image result for marlo hampton gif

If my favorite thing about watching Housewives is the reunions, then my second favorite has to be cast trips. The ladies of Atlanta are currently (well currently on the show) visiting Tokyo, Japan.

Image result for tokyo gif

The looks have been on point, the antics have made me laugh, and the drama has been reeeeal!

“She gonna murder one of us tonight; I can feel it”

Eva vs. Everything

Sweet, hippie Eva can’t seem to catch a break this trip. First, she gets into it with Porsha regarding the shady comments Eva’s been making all season. What I took from Porsha was that Eva needs to just own when she’s been shady, because as Nene was saying, if you’re going to throw shade in this group of women, “someone will call you out” on it.

However, Eva owned it all when she went up against Marlo, which honestly has been a long time coming this season between these two

Image result for marlo and eva

I was proud of Eva for standing her ground against Marlo, plus Eva needed a win after receiving the horrible news regarding her grandfather. We need to keep Eva in all our prayers because re-watching and reliving it back now for her probably really sucks.

Nene

I think this trip is showing Nene in one of her most honest lights. By that I mean, Greg’s health is breaking her down, and the Tokyo trip is her breaking point. First, there was her argument with Tanya, where I kind of saw both sides. I thought Nene’s comment about “marrying someone else” at the temple could’ve been taken as rude. I also think the reason Nene stormed out of the sushi restaurant was because she couldn’t really defend her comment; it was ill-mannered. At the same time Tanya girl, get thicker skin. But, maybe Nene left because she was tired and just over it all. She made a comment and didn’t mean anything serious by it, or that’s how she defended it. For once, with this “feud” I saw all sides, mostly because a) I’m (overly) sensitive like Tanya, but b) I know Nene can say whatever she wants to people regardless of consequences. If this disagreement tells us anything, it’s that Tanya may not be cut out to be a housewife and Nene (as mentioned) is breaking, if not already broken.

Image result for nene gif

Speaking of Nene, she got left! Porsha’s comment about her murdering someone could not have been more real; I was terrified for that sweet tour guide, who not only had to endure the back and forth between Eva and Marlo, but basically had to babysit these women the entire trip, telling them to be quiet and to be on time. WHICH, I just can not get over that the ladies had the audacity to be 30-45 minutes late the first day, after specifically being told the night before to be on time. In the end, sweet tour guide didn’t come to play when she finally left Nene.

Final Thoughts & Next Week

Closing, I loved how Porsha announced her pregnancy and I’m excited to see her journey the rest of the season. I totally related to Kandi regarding food on the trip; I’ve traveled to China before and like Kandi, I do not have an exotic pallet. Lastly, how great was the Xscape karaoke moment between all the women? I loved that they were bonding, getting along, and singing Kandi’s song!  

Image result for atlanta housewives tokyo

Next week Tokyo continues for the ladies and looks to include strippers, samurai, probably more sushi, a breakdown from Nene, and a spilled secret from Kandi about Dennis.

One Thing Before We Go …

THIS. WAS. THE. MOST. EPIC. EVENT. I. NEVER. THOUGHT. COULD. HAPPEN. AND. DIDN’T. KNOW. I. NEEDED. TO. HAPPEN!!!

Image result for andy cohen baby shower

From Rinna screaming at all of them to dance, to Kyle’s dirty suit at the end of the night, to the overall amazing and beautiful guestlist. It was just a magical adult version of a fairy tale and solidified, SOLIDIFIED my Housewife love!

Who’s Watching this Season of VPR?

Who am I kidding? What a dumb question! Of course we all are watching the newest season of the best show on Bravo: Vanderpump Rules. With only a few episodes in, drama has already ensured, but  first, “let’s gooo back … back to the beginning.”

“I feel comfortable using Hilary Duff lyrics in everyday life”

Jax and Brittany’s Engagement

Image result for brittany and jax engaged

After finding out this summer, or whenever, they got engaged via social media, I could not WAIT to see it happen on the show. I genuinely genuinely believe Jax was nervous in the moment and that nothing was staged or faked. Since the engagement, I have been a strong follower of these two, mainly to watch Jax’s every move. It’s not that I’m suspecting him to ruin this current good thing with Britt, but we’re all a tad cautious he may screw something up, right? However, I get no greater joy than seeing them as a happy couple. Since their engagement, they’ve been traveling everywhere (mainly with Lala and Randall; and btw, who else lives for the Jax and Randall bromance??), plus Jax and Britt are seriously wedding planning (Kentucky castle, hello!).

I plan on enjoying the rest of the season with them in a joyous bliss, so Tom Sandoval can step off for thinking this isn’t true love, but rather Jax being in an emotion cloud linked to his father’s death.

Introducing Beau

Image result for stassi and beau

If I follow Jax and Brittany like hawks on social media, then I follow Stassi and her new man like a stage 5 clinger; my love for them is mad real. I’ve been Team Stassi ever since season one when she was a spoiled, little B. But I go totes hard for her now. I’m so proud of her for maturing and leaving her selfish ways behind in her 20s (I re. late. on another level to this), but one of the biggest changes in her life has been the presence of her new beau, Beau.

On Instagram, I love watching all their European adventures, their blossoming friendships with the entire cast (Stassi and Ariana besties? DREAM COME TRUE!), and Beau has even got Stassi into football. Last week’s episode proved it’s not always aperol spritz and sunshine for the two, but I’m confident nothing can break them up!

James’s (continued) Role as the Villain

Image result for james kennedy

I think James is a good person. There I said it. You can see it through the financial support he provides his family, plus the pure love he has for them. I also think he realizes he has a role to play and that role is the pot stirrer, trouble maker, villain if you will. He’s taken over for Jax. Am I excusing all the horrible things James has said about the cast, especially the females?

Image result for oh hell na gif

But I also have an extremely hard time believing he’s that way deep down as a human being in his daily life; I really do think there is some sort of alcohol dependency, mixed in with a need for some serious counseling.

Listen, I love seeing everyone get along. Believe me, I’d rather have an entire season with no fights because I love this group of people so much and I want them to all be best friends and live happily ever after forever. But come on, that doesn’t make for good TV. The reason VP has become so successful is credited to all the madness these people have gone through together over the past seven seasons. James is here this season to continue said madness (because it doesn’t seem like they’re going to be having it anytime soon with each other).

Finally …

Image result for vanderpump rules season 7

I will not talk poorly about anyone’s mother, so in regards to this week’s episode and Stassi’s mamma drama, I plead the fifth. However, I do have a few thoughts on everything else that took place:

  • As previously mentioned above, Beau and Stassi are the greatest. This episode solidified how Beau could not be more perfect. Don’t believe me? Go listen to her most recent podcast ep as well!
  • I applaud Lala for meeting with James and giving us another chance to see his human side. She said it best about how they need to be two humans who just have hearts and are showing kindness.
  • I had NO IDEA Robby Hayes from the Bachelor World would be on the show, let alone this week! AND come to find out, he’s Adam’s roommate? Scheana girl, what are you doing? No one thought she could look more desperate than last season with Rob, yet here we are!
  • I’m excited to see the girls host the Tuesday GNO at Sur on the next episode. If I remember correctly from social media, it was a pajama party and Billie Lee had some words for them on Twitter. Eager to watch it all unfold!

Reunion Madness: RHOC & RHOD

We’ve got a lot to discuss …

B4F57250-68DD-47FC-AD37-187E2385E71A

Monday Night: OC Part 2

  • Two minutes in and my blood is already boiling against Vicki.
  • Oh, a Vicki apology? And now I guess we’re done with the cocaine comment … ?
  • What does David do for money?
  • Next season I want to see Shannon with a nice man!
  • “We shouldn’t show it if you didn’t remember it?”
  • Tamra talking about how Shannon is so reactive …

Image result for gif of tamra judge

Image result for gif of tamra throwing alexis out

Image result for gif of tamra that's my opinion

  • What New York trip are they talking about … ??
  • Shannon does play victim, but I also think Tamra exaggerates.

Next week … looks like the Shannon/Tamra feud continues, and we finally get to hear all thoughts on Shane’s dweeby personality. 

Wednesday Night: Dallas Part 1

  • Hahaha Brandi’s face during that “meditation”
  • I wouldn’t say LeeAnne carries the show, but she does make it VERY entertaining!
  • That was D’Andra’s big secret … ?? Heresay?? So DUMB!
  • I’m so happy to see Cary stick up for Kameron and LeeAnne … honestly I really enjoyed Cary this season (even if it did seem like she played both sides).
  • I. Relate. To. Stephanie. So. Much!! and because of that I just love love love love her.
  • “I don’t need to know who looks at your pussy” BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
  • I so so so so agree with Stephanie that the feud with Brandi and LeeAnne is tit for tat and deep rooted in last season.
  • Andy is so much like a therapist, well, at times …

Image result for andy cohen reunion gif

Next week … looks like Momma Dee will be here (this time choosing to defend D’Andra), we discuss “phone gate” and D’Andra continues to go in on LeeAnne (about Rich!).

In closing…      same dress??

 

RHOC Reunion Part 1: “Low Blow Gunvalson”

“Lies A. Minnelli!!”

Best quote of the night! Or it possibly could have been Kelly calling Vicki a fart (“silent but deadly”)! Overall, part one of the OC Reunion was basically just a Kelly vs. Vicki match, which was super surprising to me because I thought they were all good. Guess not.

Image result for you're like a fart, silent but deadly kelly dodd

Researching their feud a little more after watching last night, Kelly said that she thought the two of them left the reunion on good terms, but watching the promo brought back the emotions for Kelly in regards to Vicki’s hurtful words and accusations. Honestly, I had no idea how serious it was between the two of them, so much so, that Kelly said she wouldn’t return next season unless Vicki was off the show.

Image result for kelly dodd gif

At first, I thought their fight was over Vicki setting Michael up on a date and not telling Kelly, only to then double date with Michael and his female friend (who it turned out was a mutual friend of both Vicki and Kelly!!). Strike one Vicki. Not only did Vicki strike out there during the season, but within the first 10 minutes of last night’s reunion, Vicki had strike two in which she showed her hypocritical side (a very big side of  her) when she said she didn’t want to be a “party girl” anymore, or one who went to out bars all the time, yet got wasted in Mexico at Andales this season (and also partied it up intensely again in Jamaica).

Image result for vicki gunvalson jamaica

Eek!

Strike two ya hypocrite. But honestly, the straw that broke the camel’s back for how absurd Vicki is came when she spouted off that Kelly not only does cocaine, but she’s never with her daughter, only to then backpedal and say that their visitation arrangement is between “you and Michael.”

Image result for kelly dodd and vicki

Image result for kelly dodd and vicki

What was most shocking to me as I watched (and not just because I’m team Kelly) was how nonchalant Vicki was in saying everything. She kept such a straight face and seemed to just blame it on the fact that Kelly called her fat or compared her to a fart. Even Tamra and Shannon couldn’t seem to get through to Vicki that the accusations she was making were intense. But …

Image result for vicki gunvalson jamaica gif

She accused David of beating Shannon, Eddie of being gay, and then there was the Brooks of it all. She ruins relationships and hurts families through her words (& lies) and here she is now doing it to Kelly. Strike three Vic. I really hope she’s not saying these awful things just to secure her spot on the show, but I could totes see that happening now that OGs can be cut (ahem LVP). Ahh, suppose we’ll see how this ends in the next two weeks (it’s a three parter right?) with the continuation of the reunion. But for now … whose side are you on?

Housewives Updates … and Happy 100th post!

Image result for 100 gif

I can not believe my silly little hobby has reached its one hundredth post! I would like to thank my husband for leaving me alone with the upstairs television to watch Bravo (or maybe he leaves me alone because I’m watching Bravo …?), Instagram & Twitter for allowing me to connect with other pop culture fans, as well as trash talk those celebs we don’t particularly like, all my friends who love the same shows I do and gossip about them with me (Mack = Housewives, B = Bachelor, Lyssie = Queer Eye), and anyone who chooses to read what I write or take an interest in it … and for all those who don’t? You’re missing out!

Image result for your loss gif

Obviously, #100 had to be Bravo related because without Bravo, MHH wouldn’t exist … see below for my thoughts on everything Housewife related from this week. Don’t forget to view all 99 past posts by clicking up in the right hand corner. Follow me on IG and Twitter too! Happy reading and here’s to 100 more!

  • OC: I almost had to write up an entire post about psycho Shannon, however, I guess everything worked itself out between her and the ladies in Jamaica because she made up with everyone on last week’s episode. Gina, though, continues to keep that plot line going on tomorrow’s episode, stirring the friendship pot between Shannon & Tamra. Oh! And the reunion was recently filmed; looking forward to that!
  • Dallas: LeeAnne should not, should not, should not have used the word “alcoholic” but I don’t think I can ever be team D’Andra, no matter how in the wrong everyone else is. I also decided that Stephanie is my new housewife QUEEN  —> love love love her! Their reunion films soon too!
  • New Jersey: Season 9 starts this week. I’ve been so disappointed by the past few seasons of NJ, yet Andy says this season brings it all back to like, early season vibes … do we believe him? Guess we’ll find out Wednesday!
  • RHOA: Premiered tonight (yes, it’s on the dvr; will probs watch tomorrow before OC)! Congrats goes out to Kenya who gave birth to her first child … and a second congrats to Kenya because we don’t have to watch her this season! 😀
  • Beverly Hills: These ladies absolutely WON Halloween (Rinna as Erika Jayne?! DEAD!), so I’m very very pumped for them to return to my television, especially because there is going to be some maaaad drama with LVP I think! Pretty sure she won’t shoot with the ladies, or they’re currently not wanting to film with her!
  • Pump Rules: While they are technically not housewives (except for Lala, who I predict will soon transition to RHOB), did you see the trailer for the new season!? ANYONE AS EXCITED AS I AM?!?!?!?! If you missed the trailer, I posted it below. I’m ready to see how the Brittany/Jax proposal went down, see James’s robot girlfriend get shut down by Lala, see where Scheana has been (besides salty on Twitter), and finally see Stassi in a positive relationship (and Beau on my screen!) … oh, and see how things haven’t changed much for “That was so trashy” Kristen.

Hope you all have a wonderful, drama-free week!

RHONY: Part 1 Reunion

A Gift of a Season …” 

Andy said it best; season 10 of the Real Housewives of New York was the gift I never knew I needed. I mean, the couch swap before the reunion even started just shows that this group is nothing but iconic!

Image result for real housewives of new york season 10 reunion

Let’s get into it!

On the “Small Talk”

I do love when Andy goes around and says his welcomes and hellos. Two comments here: a) Dorinda does NOT look good and b) Carole & Adam are definitely something because he put photos of her in lingerie up on his IG story this week. Heaven forbid Carole own up to something though …

Image result for writer girl gif

On the Fashion

I can not believe Dorinda’s bubble dress is from this season; does that not feel like forever ago to everyone? Doesn’t it seem like so much has happened since then? Ha! Remember her slurring about Saturday Night Live and how she couldn’t pronounce SNL by the third time she told the story? Too too too good!

Image result for dorinda bubble dress saturday night live

On Everyone Coming for Bethenny

Opportunistic for going to Bobby’s funeral, a liar, has never said a nice word about anyone, doesn’t support other women, bashed people in interviews, killed kittens … oh, wait I don’t think Bethenny was accused of that last one. But seriously, did all the women get together and plot to come for Bethenny? We all know she’s great friends with Andy and that she’s the staple of the New York housewives but how petty can it get?

Image result for dorinda bubble dress saturday night live

First, I guarantee Jill probably wanted the cameras at Bobby’s funeral to not only honor the great man he was, but maybe help propel her back on the show. Second, Ramona has been absolutely terrible to Bethenny, so what does Ramona expect in return? If Luann would have been there, she would have defended Bethenny, which means of course the girls used her absence as ammunition; B was down an ally. If “messy’ is the word from the Potomac reunion, then JEALOUS is the word from New York’s; they’re all jealous of Bethenny’s fame, money, and quick wit!

On Dorinda’s Drinking

Image result for drunk dorinda gif

Anyone else feel incredible uncomfortable watching Dorinda laugh after Bravo showed the montage of her many slurred speeches this season? It was also awkward to watch the shade Bravo threw at her about being there to support Lu (the lighting of the candles at the church) to Dorinda’s awful behavior in Colombia (“at least I didn’t get a mugshot”). So much back and forth between those two. I agree with Andy that Dorinda’s drinking has made for funny memes and iconic moments, but it also may be something she needs to focus more attention on, rather than laugh off.

What’s to Come

Image result for real housewives of new york season 10 reunion

  • The elephant in the room that is Luann’s arrest and her being back in rehab
  • Tinsley finally opening her mouth and speaking
  • A recap of The Boat Ride From Hell

Image result for real housewives of new york season 10 reunion

  • Ev. Ery. Thing. that went on at Luann’s show
  • Bethenny v. Carole (finally)
  • Carole v. Andy

Image result for real housewives of new york season 10 reunion

I could not ask for anything more from season 10 of New York. I’ve always said Vanderpump is the best show on Bravo, but RHONY may have taken that spot. With Lu in rehab, Carole gone, Dorinda’s drinking, and everyone against Bethenny, I can only image what next season will bring. But before we get to it, we have more reunion to look forward to!

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?!)

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.

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?

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!

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!

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.

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!

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!

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 …
