Housewives Updates … and Happy 100th post!

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!

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!

Six Seasons: What I’ve Learned About the Vanderpump Cast

Martin Scorsese watches Vanderpump Rules!

Image result for ariana and tom gif

But honestly, at this point, who doesn’t watch Vanderpump? I even got my Bravo hating husband to watch live with me on Monday nights! After six seasons, the show is at the top of its game and even got nominated for a MTV Movie & TV Award. However, I’m not here to discuss how great the show is after six seasons, I’m here to discuss what I’ve learned about each cast member after all these years.

Lala

The show could stay on the air forever if every couple seasons it brought on cast members like Lala and James. I don’t know if you know it, but the world is here for Lala Kent! She’s Stassi 2.0 and if you’re following her journey with “her man” on social media, she’s very much in line to leave Vanderpump and become the newest Beverly Hills housewife! I thought she schooled James about how she thought they were becoming better people, not saying horrible, body shaming comments about others, plus she’s so honest, how can you not like her? Side note, I bought of one of her lip glosses … stuff is the real deal! What did I learn about Lala Kent from this reunion? While I may not fully agree with her definition of feminism, the girl is a boss bitch who I want to hang out with!

James

I don’t really feel I’ve seen much of a change in James since his first season. Is he drinking less and getting along with most people? Yes, and obviously the scenes with him and Jax are television gold. Plus he got his job at SUR back and See You Next Tuesdays is brilliant … however, he still drinks too much at times and talks out of his ass. So what did I learn about James Kennedy from this reunion? He is pretty much the same dude, only now with a robot girlfriend and some minor improvements.

Stassi

Stassi said she wanted to be “well-rounded” instead of a waitress this reunion. I like how Stassi isn’t always the focal point of the show anymore, but is more in a sideline character, friend role. I have been closely following her and Beau on social media & her podcast, so I pray he’s on the next season because they seem really great together! What did I learn about Stassi Schroeder from this reunion? She has self-reflected, and I think now is fully honest with the type of person she wants to be!

Jax

Jax’s “hashtag me too” comment pretty much sums him up: he’s never fully aware of what is going on, nor does he understand important issues. He put Brittany though [“rot in”] hell this season, but I truly believe the death of his dad made him finally realize what is important in life, and I really do think he’s trying to be a better person. “But what about his attack on Scheana then?” I actually watched that part of the reunion twice; the first time seeing it I didn’t think it was that bad, but re-watching it … yeah it was. Jax can’t change over night though, and I agree with many of the cast, he was lashing out because he was still in pain. What did I learn about Jax Taylor from this reunion? At least he’s trying now.

Brittany

This reunion completely made me change how I view Brittany, mainly in terms of her relationship with Jax. I say that because more than once Brittany said something along the lines of not judging others because you don’t truly know what someone is going through. She said this in regards to the comments she received about sticking with Jax, but also when Andy asked Britt her thoughts towards Lala’s feminist attitude. What did I learn about Brittany Cartwright from this reunion? I really believe she’s an angel sent from heaven to make earth, and especially self-centered people from LA, better!

Tom Schwartz & Katie

I wanted to put Katie and Tom as a package deal because I don’t feel we had too much drama from them individually this season, especially after the beating they took last season leading up to their wedding. I could NOT be prouder of how hard Katie has worked on herself, plus the bravery she showed in sharing the story of her accident. Sweet Tom, while I’m proud he’s getting his shit together and becoming a business owner, he has got to stop blacking out. I completely see where Katie is coming from; it’s so scary. So what did I learn about Katie and Tom from this reunion? Marriage is helping them become the best versions of themselves.

Tom Sandoval & Ariana

I simply don’t have that much to say. I thought it was cool how Tom told Stassi that Patrick “smothered her flame” … so sweet, until he got salty about the fact that Lisa didn’t force her to waitress #whatever. As far as Ariana goes, she replied to one of my tweets last week so that was cool …? She supports Scheana so that’s cool …? What did I learn about Tom and Ariana from this reunion? They need to be on the show and probs always will be, but to me they are neither here nor there.

Scheana

I reeeeeeally don’t want to female bash here, but it’s reeeeeeally hard for me to say anything nice about Scheana. I mean she was bad enough obsessing over Rob, saying horrible things about Shay only to come out & then say good things about him on the reunion, but to say she only watches herself on the show? Girl, this is (mostly) your full time job and you can’t spend one hour, one night a week, to watch the others so you can contribute to the conversation at the reunion?! Over it. What did I learn about Scheana “I know her last name isn’t Shay anymore but I’m too lazy to find out what it is” from this reunion? She only walked off set because her makeup was messing up, not because she was truly upset.

Kristen

Ever since Kristen got fired from SUR, she’s been slowly fading into the background of the show. She’s 100% a side character, and who knows, maybe she purposely sat up with James until seven in the morning in Mexico just so she could have a story line. With all that being said, I’d definitely be sad to see her go and I do believe she’s grown alot in the six seasons the show has been on. What did I learn about Kristen Doute from this reunion? She’s boring, but necessary.

Lisa Vanderpump

I learned one thing and one thing only from watching Lisa Vanderpump this season and especially at the reunion: get her off Housewives and keep her only on Pump Rules; I mean telling Kristen to “shut up” was GOLD! She doesn’t really bring anything like that to RHOBH (sorry not sorry).

Cheers to another fabulous season of Vanderpump Rules! I hope this show never ends!

“You’re Being Obtuse!” Vanderpump Rules Recap: 6×6

This season is too good!

If you are someone I see or text on a regular basis (cough, Becky, Alyssa, Kristin, Cindy) and you ARE NOT watching season 6 of Vanderpump Rules, GO BINGE IT NOW! FIND A WAY! I don’t even care if you know nothing about seasons 1-5 … I’ll fill you in! Even if I don’t talk to you regularly, go binge this season if you aren’t already watching!

Image result for vanderpump rules bossy gif

Now, if you are currently watching this season (Mack, Stephanie, Joleen & Xchel) or just follow my blog in general … keep living the good life!

Image result for vanderpump rules bossy

Okay so this episode starts at Jax and Brittany’s housewarming party (EYE ROLL!), right after Brittany heard the recording Faith made of Jax. Here is what we learned from the recording according to the girls, because I think legally we as viewers can’t listen to it:

  • Jax doesn’t want kids with Brittany
  • He doesn’t want to marry her
  • They haven’t been intimate in months
  • He’s not attracted to her
  • Faith was the best sex Jax had ever had

Image-1.png

The same night the episode of Brittany hearing the recording, crying her eyes out, and cursing until her face is red aired, was the same night she was on WWHL with Andy. Andy asked her about a ring Jax had been seen wearing on his left ring finger and Brittany said she thinks Jax is getting the marriage itch. OMG it’s so sickening to me that she’s still with him!

Image result for vanderpump rules bossy gif

I want to support Brittany (I really really really do) because I love her so much, but after the recording and the way he talks to her later in the episode, I just can’t feel bad for her anymore if she’s still with him.

Speaking of support, I LOVE how much the girls rally behind Brittany. First of all Lala Kent needs to be the voice and face of women’s rights … like can we re-brand Rosie the Riveter, but with Lala’s picture on it?

She’s having a great season. Ariana is also having a good season, despite what Sandoval says. While I agree that it wasn’t the best time to play the recording at 1am while everyone was wasted, Ariana and Lala were probs wasted too (and everything sounds like a good idea when you’re wasted). So step off Tom because Brittany needed to hear the recording and any other time, maybe the girls wouldn’t have had the courage to play it for her.

Second, when all the guys left the apartment, how funny was Ariana when she was all “it’s fine; we have all the artichoke dip and jello shots!” Finally, who is the last person Ariana would take with her to go confront TomTom & Jax … KRISTEN! Yet, there they go together down the hall. In fact, while on Watch What Happens Live with Britt, Ariana said her and Kristen are in some sort of cool/good place!

Image result for ariana madix gif

Guess who else is having an amazing season?! Mr. James Kennedy himself! First off, him meeting with Lisa after the party was THE BEST scene from the whole episode!

The moment of him throwing his hands up in the air when describing Brittany, but also his making (& naming) of his DJ fliers & the passing out of them … I just cant even! So funny! I put the actual loop of “Whhhhhhhy!!” (or gif if you will) on twitter and James actually retweeted it, so you can find it there. But he’s killing it this season even further back from drinking absinthe with Jax, to bringing the toilet paper cake, to drinks with the guys and his judgey mcjudge face (that we were all making at home), to his successful DJ scenes this episode with only a Shirley Temple in his system! Proud of you James!

IMG_0047.jpg

Next week though, it looks like James gets into it with Lala over James’s girlfriend, Raquel. Also next week, Mama Cartwright (Brittany’s mom) makes a surprise visit, much to the dismay of Jax by the looks of it. But honestly, until he can stop twisting everything around on Brittany, Brittany needs all the reinforcements she can get!

For now …

See you soon! 

Did He or Didn’t He? Season 6 Vanderpump Rules Premier

@HeatherMcDonald: “How pissed would you be if you hired Faith to be your 95 yr old grandma’s caregiver? #VanderpumpRules @kristendoute @scheana #WWHL”

@pdubsuw: “My birthday is coming up. I may tweet at Scheana and ask her not to come #PumpRules”

@LoveAndyC: “You invest 10% and think you can design this place? #PumpRules”

@MusicKillsKatie: “Now that’s what we call a season opener! #pumprules”

You said it Katie.

JAX CHEATED ON BRITTANY WITH ANOTHER SERVER NAMED FAITH WHILE AN OLD LADY SLEPT NEARBY?! I mean, can this show get any crazier? Now Faith may be pregnant. If she is pregnant with Jax’s baby this is the biggest thing ever! Bigger than when it was revealed that Kristen and Jax did in fact sleep together … or the slap heard ’round the world.

Image result for stassi slap gif

Faith’s story is suuuuper sketch though. Apparently Jax just “stopped following her on Twitter” but then called her and said he’s always wanted to hook up with her and can he come over to do so while she was babysitting this elderly person? I mean, I could see Jax cheating on Brittany, but I don’t really buy this story.

Guess we’ll find out next week. 

vanderpump-rules.w710.h473

While the Jax/Faith/Brittany love triangle certainly was the main storyline from the premier episode, it wasn’t the whole episode. We learned that the lines have been redrawn between some of the girls. It’s back to Ariana and Scheana on one side, and Katie and Stassi on the other.

I guess Kristen and Tom Schwartz are stuck in the middle between the two groups because both still got invited to Scheana’s birthday party. I was actually really shocked Tom was invited because to me a husband and wife are a packaged deal on an invitation.  I guess Tom didn’t get that memo either because he went to the party anyway without Katie.

Image result for tom schwartz gif

He was totes missing her though because when all the cheating rumors and drama was flying around at the party, Schwartz ran to Lisa to discuss. As far as the rest of the episode, I was a little bored:

  • Lisa is wanting Tom and Tom to each invest $100,000 in this new restaurant and Sandoval is trying to ramrod the whole thing.
  • James has a new male friend (& looks like possible love interest later in the show) and his girlfriend returned for the summer.
  • Ariana got a haircut and Sandoval loves it.
  • Ummm …  Stassi crashed Tom & Katie’s honeymoon?

See, told you. Boring. 

I’m still on the Brittany and Jax ordeal. I can NOT see this being true so early on in the season and us not hearing about it during filming. Although many of us did hear they had broken up a while back. I guess we’ll just have it wait and watch. But, I’m SO here for this season!
