  1. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    It's cool, I didn't take it personal towards me. She's come a long way since S3, though I liked her back then too. She was in a vulnerable place and she never hid it from the cameras or pretended to be like the other women.

    I was reminded of that very scene while watching this latest episode, particularly when Luann was shopping for the nutri-bullet! As ridiculous as some of Sonja's demands where -- and most of the other women would have flat-out refused -- Luann seems to want to support Sonja's efforts to detox and get (somewhat) healthy. She also wanted Sonja to feel at home in Lu's house, just as Sonja once welcomed her into her townhouse. Luann has been accused (mostly by Carole) of being a narcissist, fake, inauthentic, selfish, evil, etc, etc, but when it comes to Sonja, Luann is gentle and empathetic without being an enabler. She understands it's hard to get over a longtime husband leaving you and downsizing your life. (I maintain that while Luann did fall for Tom, the Count was the love of her life, and I wonder if her outsized reaction to her divorce with Tom wasn't in part latent feelings of rejection she felt from her first divorce). When Mario and Ramona broke up, for example, Luann did not bear grudges with regards to the things Ramona had said about her marriage. I don't think she's boring! Cynthia is one of my favourites on ATL. And definitely, she can and does read people. She may not do it every episode, but when she does, it is always perfectly judged and spot on.

    Cynthia pithily shut Kim down while encapsulating why everybody hates her her cry-wolf behind. As far as I'm concerned, 51Cynt earned her spot for next season.

    Yep yep YEP! Watching Bravo's best-laid plans to lumber RHOA with Kim's presence come completely undone in one episode was ABSOLUTELY GLORIOUS and outdid the Phaedra take-down. It was TT who reported that Beck got quietly demoted halfway through filming when Bravo flew in a longtime RHONY producer to take control of production -- partly, I suspect, to deal with Kim's crazy diva demands and possibly at the request of Nene, Kandi and others who had no desire to be kicked around by Kim anymore. From the very beginning of the season, Bravo, Beck and Kim's entitled ass EXPECTED to be Star of this franchise, showing the other girls 'how it's done.' Production trailed and built up her scenes heavily, bent over backwards to squeal that KIM Z IS BACK on its YouTube channel. The end-game was this: Kim would sweep in, tear these women apart, sweep out, have the audience clamoring for her full-time return, and then she would supplant Kenya come season 11. Sadly, though, Production expected too much of the rather limited Mrs. Biermann. Being married to Lurch may make you look smart and quick-witted, but that doesn't mean you are any of those things. Production also under-estimated the other women, who were not 100% on their game during filming, but who came through in strength during Reunion, especially Kenya. Kim did not have the vocabulary or coolness that the others had. Her defense has already been overused to death on Twitter and IG, so the women were more than ready with a response to the tired litany of "You're just jealous because I have a husband with no income and 472 kids!!" They were fired up with purpose and righteous anger, but ice-cool when it came to delivery. It was perfection. When Kim ran out of her jealousy defense, the mask dropped completely. Did you see that producer scamper out squealing "We need Andy and a camera NOW!" ? God knows what Kim must have been spewing before the camera got there, but we definitely saw Ms. I-don't-see-color true colors. And they are ugly as sin. Even Slow Lurch knew it was bad because he put his hand on the camera and tried to get it out of there. And Andy couldn't be bothered to make her feel better. When they hugged, she clung to his neck like 'Don't drop me, Bravo!' I have no clue where her career will go from here. Bravo did everything to make sure she would be winning this season. It was a slam-dunk for her -- and she still managed to torpedo it. Don't worry about her too much, though: Kim will land on her feet and still has one more season of Tardy to turn things around (thanks to M2M on the same night) -- unlike Phaedra who is nowhere to be seen after last year.

    It's not an unpopular opinion. I adore Dorinda and love her CLIIIP moments, but she was way too aggressive at that lunch. Clearly she is still raw from Richard's death. Clearly the issues she has with Sonja have been festering for the past 2 years. The Page Six exclusives and the delusions are pissing the women off, Dorinda included. I also think that Dorinda is trying to give Sonja a wakeup call and be honest about her feelings to Sonja's face (instead of bitching behind her back like Carole and Tinsley did in the car -- I think Dorinda knows that Sonja HATES it when the other women talk or make fun of her on the sly). Not to defend Dorinda but Sonja still needs a wakeup call of some sort. She has become increasingly ill-tempered with and distant from the women, too. She is not the same Sonja of 2 or 3 seasons ago. It's sad that Dorinda cannot see Sonja's vulnerability because normally she is an empathetic Sagittarian who can be protective of her friends. Let's not forget that Dorinda was drinking and that is an issue for her, and this season it may come to a head. I don't think she quite realises the depth of Sonja's despair. When Sonja talked about getting on depression/anti anxiety meds, she made it a joke, however it was also a cry for help to the other women. She wants them to know she is going through something as far as her mental health is concerned.

    I'm disappointed at the overall lack of Erika dragging in the preview. I imagine if someone had dragged her beautifully, Bravo would tease us with it. Anyhoo, time to bury this faux-tough, supercillious, dismissive Erika Jayne persona. She thinks she's all that, but nobody's buying it anymore.
  7. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    AGREE with a lot of this. I did feel a *little* sorry for Sonja as it must seem many of the ladies have it out for her. However, it must be frustrating to have a friend who is literally delusional. Luann was very nice to accommodate Sonja and make her feel better about herself. But imo most of the women are pissed about Sonja going to Page Six and spilling tea about them for a few coins. Sonja is clearly hanging on by a thread financially: those scenes riding the jitney and then having some random guy keep her 1980s sedan in his backyard were sad. She couldn't even get Dorinda to offer her a ride. Her house is on the market as a rental which is a good move financially, but lord knows if anybody has signed up to live there. It's sad to know that she's been on anti-depressants but not surprising given that she's been self-medicating ever since she joined RHONY. Dorinda blurted out that her husband left her because Sonja cheated on him in the South of France. That explains a lot in the sense that Sonja never seemed angry at her husband for leaving her. Grief-stricken, yes. But vengefully angry, no. Tinsley is bitter and mean and I cannot warm to her this season. She is also deluding herself with regards to Scott the Magic Unicorn becoming her boyfriend again. I think he sees her with more realistic eyes now. I can kind of see both Carole and Bethenny's sides of their falling out. It can't be easy for Carole being Me-Myself-and-I's best butt buddy. It's a rude awakening for Bethenny to realize Carole is a friend-jumper who essentially ghosts her former BFFs once she's found a jump-off. There isn't much going on in Ramona's life on the show right now, but I am truly loving her as Greek Chorus/Voice of Pinot Reason.

    BH: It's bittersweet watching the closing finale of BH with that music, mainly because this used to be my favorite franchise. The finale 'fight' was so contrived and non-existent, they had to dig back to last season for an excuse. Kyle looked ridiculous having a tantrum about f*cking Pantygate, though she inadvertently put her finger with what is wrong with the show: everybody is so self-scripted and afraid to show how they really feel. Rinna acknowledged it too when she said she pulled back emotionally because she didn't feel like fighting 'injustices' (cue a shot of VanderSatan). It sounded like something Erika would have said. Most of these women seem desperate to imitate Erika, from glam squad to keeping their emotions in check and watching from the sidelines. If everybody is watching from the sidelines, waiting to pounce on easy prey, it doesn't make for riveting TV. Couldn't help but feel bad for Kyle tonight. Watching American Woman, it is clear Kyle cannot let go of her past and childhood. Kathy and Kim just will not give her the love and validation she needs. I was surprised at how unironic and 'normal' the clips seemed -- like the show was made in the 1990s and not 2017. The mother character seemed strong and caring of her children, but I'm not sure Big Kathy was like that all the time. Maybe Kyle needs to rewrite her childhood in a more palatable form, hence the show. I also see why Kyle projects so much neediness and loathing on LVP. She craves deep devotion from the women in her life, and when she can't get it from Kathy and Kim, she expects LVP to fill that void. P.S.: This better not be a 3-part reunion! Even the witchy-poo Carlton season had more going on than this year!
  9. OWN picks up Jamey Giddens scripted show!

    Congrats to him! I enjoy his unabashed enthusiasm for the soap genre, and I'm pleased he is translating his dreams into reality. Hope it works out for him.

    Saturday with Nene dancing in her Kim wig made me lmao. Good times!
  11. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    Lol that's what it is!! This special snowflake thinks she's the most hilarious, charming, shadiest chick around, the OG of her franchise, when in reality she's an ostrich-necked pretty girl who has coasted on her looks all her life. There isn't much behind the green eyes and blonde weave. Even Kyle has more to offer! @DaytimeFan I love Karen and the way she urged her daughter to stay strong because it's events like these that are the making of you. I also love that she and Ray went to Monique's and got right in with the crowd, circulating and talking to people. Ray even got his dance on! Meanwhile, miserable Robyn and roach-in-a-wig Charrisse were outside, alone, miserably bitching about Karen and their hostess. Nice! It must also kill them that Karen was looking gorgeous at that 'press con' (see the gif of the Grande Dame that Cheap posted).
  12. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    Potomac I hope Gizelle and Robyn are getting slated on social media for their assery. What makes them think they are better than the other women that they can sneer at their misfortune? Especially after everything they went through in their own households. Gizelle's #FreeUncleBen t shirt really showed the trashy, wannabe-shady-but-failing twit she is. I am Team Karen all day every day so far this season. Robyn is a classic mean-girl sidekick; she's passive-aggressive and has the nerve to act outraged when the person she is targeting strikes back at her. I noticed she couldn't even show up at Monique's house without back-up, in this case Charrisse. Damn, it must KILL Charrisse to not be a regular this season of the Hugers' fall from grace! The long-time relationships between these women feel real, though, and Monique's birthday for Chris was the first time in a LONG time on a RH franchise that an event looked and felt authentic. It was filled with Chris's friends and family who didn't notice or care about the cameras. I really liked it. New girl Candiace (ugh! that spelling. I keep reading it as 'Candy Ass' in the intro) is growing on me, too.
  13. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    She wants a truce like I want syphilis. She is desperate to perpetuate this fight and play victim -- it likely got Tardy renewed for next season. However, given that she has to support 17 children, Kroy her personal Spanx-puller-upper, and ridiculous spending like those horrific lips, she's lost that additional RHOA paycheck. Get to hustlin, Brianna ! ATL: Eva brought very little to the table last night apart from the fact that she's about to pop. I liked her on ANTM but I don't think she brings anything to RHOA. I am ready for Solo-Cup-and-Cigs to get her ass lips handed back to her next week. That's what happens when you play dirty!
  14. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    Lol it's a case of Guess the Bravolebrity. (Mary Joe = Luann, Sauna = Kyle, Aviva = Nene). Aidy Bryant can do no wrong imo. And I do think the RH intros are inspired ridiculousness. Bye, trick! You brought it on yourself!
  15. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    Some of the filmed HW shows may be disappointing us, but on this week's WWHL, the HWs have been bringing it! It's been a lot of fun.
