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 …

  • 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 …

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??

 

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!

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!

The Real Recap: RHOC & RHOD

Hi friends!! I haven’t written a post in a while due to middle school teaching and cheer being so busy, but what I’m never too busy for is watching the housewives. Now that we’re really getting into the seasons, I want to share my thoughts on the OC and Dallas women.

Orange County Housewives

Image result for orange county housewives gif

RHOC has been kind of a mess lately. Last season with Lydia was such a bust, and this season it looked like we might be headed in the same direction. Kelly Dodd is saving the show. First, let’s discuss what’s hurting and what always seems to hurt on housewives: new cast members. I had to fast forward the scene with Vicki and Gina because it’s so hard to watch Gina struggle raising three very small children all on her own. Plus, she’s so much younger than the other women and is just removed from their deep, inner circle that she makes for boring tv. Don’t ask her back next season.

Who should be asked back? Heather, Alexis, or Gretchen! Bring back some OGs who have history with the Core 4, and who will ruffle feathers (especially Shannon’s … we’ll get to her shortly). As far as Emily goes, she shined on this week’s episode, freaking out in regards to Kelly’s comments about Shane (Emily’s husband). I can’t wait to see the aftermath next week! Kelly Dodd may be single and ready to mingle, as well as Shannon’s new ride or die, but she’s still the same Kelly, who makes obnoxious comments (“You’re a dork! You’re a little b***h!”) that I am so here for and is much needed to hold my attention of the show.

I could not have been more shocked to see Shannon feel guilty over how she makes everything about herself (which she does) in regards to her friendship with Tamra (who was wasted most of the episode). I want to root for Shannon because she’s gone through so much the last two years, but it’s to the point where she is becoming as unbearable to watch as Vicki. Again though, I was proud of her for taking a realty check with Tamra, as well as being a great friend to Kelly. I’m so so so here for their friendship!

Cheers to those two and cheers to Emily for helping me be excited to watch this week!

Dallas Housewives

Image result for dallas housewives gif

Sooo … yay Brandi has a new baby, yay D’Andra is starting her own business (maybe), yay Kameron is still talking about Sparkle dog food …. oh wait. DALLAS IS BACK! I haven’t yet blogged about these women, (unless you count the time I went over their new taglines … click here!), so I’m excited to dive in and discuss the third season! As far as the actual ladies go, I’m always (and always will be) team LeeAnne, although the rodeo bar scenes were a bit much (that floor dancing!). I’m really loving Stephanie this season as well! And, I know so many people dislike her, but I kind of enjoy when Kameron is on my television. Brandi, to me, is the OG of Dallas, so I enjoy her for what she brings to the show and don’t ever want to see her leave, but she’s not my favorite favorite. However, I really can’t stand D’Andra or Cary (and thank goodness Cary was out of town this week & we didn’t have to see her much).

Umm … not really …

Anyway, I thought the Beaver Creek episodes were fun to watch and made me more excited for the bigger trip they’ll take later in the season. This week, it was nice to see Brandi with the ladies without Stephanie & Cary, and I’m glad Kameron brought it up to discuss. I’m suuuper interested to see how everything is going to play out with the new forming friendship of D’Andra & Brandi … mostly, will it give us another famous LeeAnne line?

The next episode looks a little boring, but I get that we’re still developing the season. I can’t wait for that confrontation between Brandi and LeeAnne in costume!

This isn’t a video … I just needed it for the reference I made 🙂

As always, come find me on Twitter or IG so we can discuss the women in further detail! This week expect another post because … THE EMMYS ARE TOMORROW NIGHT in which all of television (except, sadly, the housewives) are rewarded! I’ll be watching live, as well as Tweeting all the fashion, winners, and losers!

Post Script:

I’ve been pretty quiet on all the Bachelor related drama that’s been in the news: Amanda’s arrest, Bekah’s pregnancy, Paradise finale, Jenna & Jordan … it’s not that I don’t care (everything is up on my IG), I’m just frustrated still about Colton being named Bach (read all my thoughts here: Colton is the Worst), and quite frankly … I’m needing a major Bachelor break. I need my homies, aka the housewives, to raise me up from this tv slump (which they have!) … thus, I won’t be discussing anymore Bachelor until Colton’s season … that is, if I watch!

 

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

Real Housewives of Dallas: “They’re Not Knives, They’re Just Hands”

I spent a blissful Sunday morning yesterday, drinking coffee and eating homemade biscuits and gravy prepared by my amazing husband, while consuming three hours of The Real Housewives of Dallas.

Now I’m about to drop some hon-est-tea.

LeeAnne-Locken-Brandi-Redmond-Stephanie-Hollman-Kameron-Westcott-listen-to-Cary-Deuber-clarify-her-question

As any true Housewife fan knows, everything starts with the infamous taglines, so ‘lets begin!

Kameron: “Blah blah blah blah pink dog food.”

pink-sequin-dress.jpg

D’Andra: “My husband may actually beat Mauricio as Hottest Housewife Husband, which finally gives me some sort of relevance”

images.jpg

Cary: “My husband doesn’t like our child; what should I do?”

cary-rhod.jpg

LeeAnne: “I may be nuts, but at least I’ve got the best guy on the show.”

LeeAnne_Locken

Brandi: “If you want to see home video of me as a child, simply watch my daughters.”

brandi-redmond-mimics-leeanne-locken-moments-before-her-surgery-1-500x276.jpg

Last is Stephanie, but I have more to say on her than only giving her a tagline. I wasn’t a huge fan of Stephanie last year and I can’t really say why; she just wasn’t that interesting to me. She lacked a personality a bit and she seemed to be playing the sidekick to her husband and Brandi.

HOWEVER, STEPHANIE HOLLMAN IS THE REASON DALLAS HOUSEWIVES NEEDED TO COME BACK FOR A SECOND SEASON!

Image result for butterfly gif

She has seriously TRANSFORMED into a beautiful butterfly! Some of my favorite Stephanie Hollman moments so far this season include:
– her comparison of meeting Brandi’s family to the Bachelor and how she’d get the final rose
– the Catfish Barbie comment
– standing up to Travis about that god awful pool in their new house
– being the bigger person when LeeAnne came as “Two Faced”

She’s a queen!

Steph.jpg

Speaking of LeeAnne, we need to discuss. I don’t know what it is about her, but I seem to find myself always rooting for her. This isn’t just because she provides the most entertainment with her crazy behavior. I think  deep down LeeAnne just wants to be accepted by all the girls (& honestly don’t we all?). I hate that she threatened Cary and I know that scene where she smashes a glass is coming …

LeeAnne-Locken.jpg

But the good news is (as mentioned earlier) she has such an amazing support system in Rich; I mean that proposal was a-maze-ing!!! So sweet! She’s also working on herself by going to therapy (which are some of my FAVORITE scenes this season BTW). Finally, while I was researching for this post, I found out LeeAnne was FREAKING IN MISS CONGENIALITY AS ONE OF THE BEAUTY PAGEANT CONTESTANTS! Her hands may just be hands but you better believe that animal balloon scene should DEFINITELY win her extra points in your eyes.

Going into tonight’s episode, I think the lines are obviously drawn with Brandi, Stephanie, & Cary on one … and LeeAnne, D’Andra, & Kameron on the other! But regardless of sides, I must say that ladies are just dumb; not these ladies, females in general. It doesn’t matter how many honest teas you have or how many make up presents you try to give people or how many times you try to apologize … females, regardless of age, will get their feelings hurt by a mean comment. Females will always want to be the “best” friend out of their group of friends, and females will always talk behind one another’s back.

170828_3575459_Is_LeeAnne_Testing_Brandi_with_this_Two_Face.jpg

I’m not saying this is right. We as females need to do better, however, this behavior is what has built the housewives empire. This behavior is why us fans tune in each week and get excited when a new franchise is started or when a firecracker like Danielle Staub returns (two more days until #RHONJ!). I’m guilty of this behavior with my own friends and when I sit here criticizing people from behind my blog. I think the best we can do is realize when we are wrong and try to change.

RHOD-Brandi

I’ll start tomorrow.

For now, I’m all about the Dallas ladies and am super pumped to see what all goes down in Mexico! Ay ay ay!
