Potomac Reunion (Part 1 & Pocket-Sized)

If you watched, then you know …

What shocked me

  • Karen & Ashley sitting next to each other
  • Gizelle & her ex !!!!!! (Anyone see them front row at the Chapelle Netflix special?Orrrr hear this ……. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻)

  • I’m surprised it wasn’t discussed further that Karen’s scent smells “elderly” per Ashley & Gizelle ….
  • “So you’re renting”
  • Andy calling out Candiace’s mother & asking her to hit him with her purse🤣
  • Omggggggg Ashley & Candiace … SHUT up!
  • I had no idea Ashley was going through depression after giving birth, yet …

Questions I have

  • Has Gizelle always been this shady or is it just for the show? Who from her past can answer this for me?
  • What was that weird look between Candiace and her mom when Andy asked if they still go to therapy?

Anything else?

  • Per outfit choices, loved Monique’s earrings, & Candiace’s shoes, yet wasn’t surprised Robyn had crazy ugly nails #nototheneon

Things are just beginning to heat up in Potomac! See you next week!

I’m Currently Watching …

Week 6 of maternity leave is in full effect. I love my baby & our time together! Besides his eating and pooping a lot, the two of us spend our days doing what else?? Watching & discussing television. His current favorites include …

Big Brother

I always root for an underdog, so I am wanting either Nicole or Cliff to come away as the winner. I thought it was interesting that CBS aired Nicole reading her Head of Household letter; it’s as if they want her to win America’s Favorite Player, or the network just wants to show that it actually cast at least one genuine, good person?

Speaking of a not so genuine or good person, Michie is HOH currently. As I write this, I already know who won the POV and what that person plans to do with it. All I can say is I really hope this plan goes through; we’ll just have to see tonight!

Bachelor in Paradise

I can’t believe Caelynn left with Dean, I’m kind of digging Dylan & Hannah’s relationship, and please get Nicole & Clay off my screen. Other than that? Snooze fest.

This is the last week for paradise, right? Doesn’t DWTS start next week? Every year that I watch Paradise, I kind of feel like the final couple episodes are extremely boring, and I’m just not as into it. I’m ready for the reunion; that’s all I care about at this point.

Friends

img_3819

This is my first time sitting down to watch Friends from the beginning, in order. Usually I catch an episode here & there if nothing else is on. I know, I know, I know. How is that even possible? Everyone has seen and loves this show! It’s just one I never really got into before.

I decided to start watching it as a light- hearted, stress reliever during my baby’s newborn phase of late nights, cry fits, & my emotional overthinking of every little thing; come to find out, the show has helped so so much! I would literally prescribe it to anyone ever feeling anxious or sad. I’m so in love & invested after only three seasons that I purchased some of the PJs from the Friends line at Walmart. You can get yours at the link below 👇🏻 !!

Wal-Mart

Chandler is obviously my favorite, who’s yours?

Dave Chappell & Travis Scott

My husband and I recently watched Dave Chapelle’s Netflix stand up special. I cannot stress enough how not only hilarious, but accurate it is in today’s climate. However, Chapelle is definitely not PC in it. I would take this as a warning if you decide to watch, especially if you are one that is easily offended🙄.

I also started to watch the Travis Scott documentary, but I couldn’t finish it. Maybe I just don’t get him or his music? Honestly I just wanted to watch for the Kylie of it all. Instead, it seemed like mostly concert footage, and I wasn’t in the mood. It didn’t seem to tell much about his life or background or anything; maybe I gave up too soon?

Football Sundays

Go Chiefs!!!

I’m also watching Potomac, Orange County, & Dallas Housewives, AND Keeping Up, all of which are not disappointing, but rather are seeeeeerving up entertainment!

Come find me on Twitter @myhollywoodh to follow my thoughts on all things Bravo & more😘

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

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!

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.

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.

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?

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!

This Season on the Real Housewives of Potomac

Car crashes, geriatric grannies, Nemacolin, dizzy bitches, & scentertainment

Image result for real housewives of potomac

Going into it’s third season, the Potomac ladies have officially made it; they have all the things you need to be a longstanding housewife franchise: arguments, trips, everyone insisting on everyone apologizing to everyone, and closed door conversations. However, My Hollywood Hangover is here to get more in depth.

The Women

Since the first season and her “spring chicken” tagline, I’ve always been Team Ashley. I think I tend to gravitate to the younger housewives because I can relate more to them (except Meghan King Edmonds; I never liked her once). I think Ashley is gorgina, fun, & playful. . Plus, Ashley’s had the best reaction faces this season (or possibly of any season, of any franchise!).

 

Watching her last week, arguing with her mother, was devastating to watch and my whole heart goes out to her for that.

I also a big fan of the green eyed monsters (I think that’s what Monique called them). Gizelle has been my other long standing favorite of Potomac, where as I didn’t really love Robin. But, I respect Robin, and all she’s going through with Juan, plus you have to admit, Gizelle and Robin together are TV gold!

Image result for real housewives of potomac season 3 gif

I feel pretty indifferent about Candiace … I  like her, but don’t loooove her (I never do with the new girls though).

Image result for gizelle and robyn gif

The women I am truly not not not here for however, are Karen, Monique, and messy messy Charrisse (who I am beyond glad is no longer full time). I’ve never liked how Karen thinks “she’e so above everyone dahling”, plus you can just see how she’s lying about Ray, his legal issues, and “blue eyes.”

Monique thinks since she made it a second season, she’s the new star of the show, smoking her cigars left and right … only to inhale and throw up in the bushes?! What the … ?? I also completely completely agree with the fact that her reputation could be ruined by the accusation of having a drinking problem or being too drunk to drive. But I am so confused as to how she would just fall asleep in the middle of the day driving, enough to hit a tree, and then hop on a bus for a girls’ trip the next day was it, like nothing happened. I’d be devastated if something like that happened to me, and would probably want time with my family to reflect. Oh well, not in her shoes right?

And finally, Charrisse? Girl there is a reason you are just a side piece this season.

Booooo.

 

Nemacolin

First off, this moment,   Image result for real housewives of potomac season 3 gif   was PRICELESS! Ashley did look like a younger version of Karen! I also loved how Ashley could repeat so many lines from past seasons; I’m also glad Karen had a sense of humor about it!

The trip looked really fun, and I was happy to see the ladies not afraid to try activities in nature! While we got to see some fun arguments (Charrisse v. Candiace, Karen v. Gizelle), Nemacolin also taught us a few things: Karen can be an angry drunk, Ray once asked Karen for a divorce, & Karen may set Charrisse up with “blue eyes.”

Image result for real housewives of potomac season 3 gif

Ashley claimed Karen & Mr. Blue Eyes were spotted … at Ashley’s restaurant, Oz! That is extremely hard for me to believe. Think about it: if you’re having a date with the person you’re having an affair with, why would you go to your friend’s restaurant?! Perhaps it wasn’t a date, but they had too much to drink and that was how the “compromising position” occurred? Or, it just didn’t happen like Karen said (shoulder shrug) ????????

Revelations & Conversations 

Image result for real housewives of potomac season 3 gif

Well, this was the image we were left with before tonight’s episode airs. I’m excited to see where the rest of the season goes. I really hope the ladies take a longer, across the ocean trip because I’m certain drama would ensue if they did. I could care less about Karen’s perfume or Candiace’s wedding (think it will air on TV?), but I do hope Ashley gets things worked out with her mom & husband, and I hope Gizelle gets some answers from Sherman because she deserves a good man!

Here’s to us all watching!
