Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

It says something that the initial news of her 'firing' barely registered. Tinsley's ok, I guess (love Daaaaayyyle, the US's answer to Carole Middleton), and Bravo tried hard to make her happen, but she never really took off. I personally thought Jules was a better fit, although somebody whose name rhymes with 'Fethenny Brankel' obviously felt differently!

 

 

Clearly Erika is the target next week, but it seemed like this episode, Rinna was the intended target.

 

I assumed for a long time that Kyle's inability to stand up for Kim to Rinna meant that she valued Rinna's friendship over her sister. However, this episode it strikes me that Kyle might not care for Rinna at all. Part of it is the constant Kim bashing (Rinna's recurring SL the part 5 years). Part of it is Rinna calling Kyle an enabler. Part of it is Rinna bossing everybody around like she runs the show. Kyle would be more than happy for Rinna to be perceived as ringleader of the LVP takedown (which she probably is) and take the fall with the audience.

 

Anyhoo, I thought it was pretty interesting that Kyle let TheVanillaFayeResnick go after Rinna/Erika while she sat back and watched. Same old Kyle.

I guess I really wasn't paying attention during the start of the dinner. Silly me. lol.

 

But yeah, I do believe that Kyle has not liked Lips since then as well.

They’re moving RHONY to Thursday’s as a lead in to Million Dollar Listing being on that night apparently. 

 

Also, shame we’re getting a mid season trailer already (means they’re going back to a short season), but this looks GOOD:

 

Lastly, with RHOBH this week besides being really boring, it was very similar to Puppygate. I know LVP gets the manipulative title, but Rinna and Kyle are no different, but seem to get away with it a lot easier. This episode you got to see that with Kyle. She is obviously pissed at Lisa Rinna and IMO she is perfectly justified. Rinna was an [!@#$%^&*] to Kim out of nowhere over something you KNOW didn’t bother her, plus it was at Kyles daughters party, but why not just say that? The whole thing with Erika Jayne was just to get Erika fired up to join in with Kyle and Teddi to bash Rinna. They all dance around the subject and play these stupid games so I don’t understand how LVP got singled out for it. 

YYYYAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSS Potomac!!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSS!!!! That was hot.

Finished NYC season 8!

 

First off, horrible new theme music.

 

So much of the first half focusing on that pig John. And then we had Michael. Two creepy dudes becoming friends. Ugh. If NYC is missing something, it's some hot man candy/husbands/boyfriends (except Adam). Season 7 made up for that with random hotness but it's not enough.

 

Jules spent at least the first half of the season being a non presence. I thing she's sweet, but she can't even get a sentence out. At least her vagina provided some story and I did feel bad Michael was cheating and left her.

 

LOL at all the cancelled trips. I love when the 'reality' comes into the reality shows. 

 

LuAnn went back to her ultra hateful utter denial. LieAnn INDEED. Trashy, triflin ho!! The reveal of John's infidelity was edge of your seat. I felt a little bad for her there, but she quickly ruined it, and she was insufferable in the reunion.

 

Overall, a fun, constantly entertaining season!

Glad you enjoyed S8! Can't wait till you work your way through to S10 which was INSANE.

 

I too hate the nee theme music. They changed it again for S9 and it's even more obnoxious IMO.

 

Jules was timid at first and in a tough place emotionally. I would have liked to see her come back in S9, to see how she had grown and changed. But it was not to be.

 

I had a different reaction to the Luann/Bethenny fallout. Yes, Luann is a narcissist who was ridiculously tied up in Tom. I was disappointed that she reunited with his trifling ass at the end, after he humiliated her publicly. Luann was desperate not to lose this chance at marriage, and was willing to overlook every warning sign to do it. However, I found Bethenny AWFUL that season. The way she and Carole bullied and thin-shamed Jules was horrific (and said a lot about their own twisted relationship with food). The way Bethenny slut-shamed Luann as Carole cheered her on, tried to isolate Lu and Sonja from the group, and did everything in her power to dig up dirt on Tom... None of this came from a good place. It came from a spiteful, controlling place. Bethenny felt she was star of the show and treated the other women like her employees. As a result of S8, I have never quite come back to fully liking Bethenny or Carole. But I get that it's different strokes for different folks.

Thanks! Is it?! Can't wait.

 

Well, I guess it's good I've been warned!

 

I have to admit, by the end of the season I was willing to see what a second season would be like for Jules.

 

I knew instantly LuAnn wouldn't dump Tom and it was made worse by how she went on the attack. I really do see your POV regarding Bethenny. She came out all guns blazing and NOT always in the best of ways. She went too far with telling Sonja she never wanted to see her again and I didn't like the harsh way her anorexia issues came out with Jules. The slut-shaming scene was also cringe-worthy, but then again she felt bad immediately after. Do I completely believe she was 100% saddened about the Tom/LuAnn situation? No. I do think there was some spite in all of that. You could tell by how relatively subdued she was in the reunion that she'd gone too far. 

 

But I think that's what makes NYC sooooo fascinating. They just expose so many sides of them, some really bad, and they don't seem to care all that much if they do lol

I live for messy Candiace. Girl is working for that check and I dont mind bc f--k Ashley!

 

I don't mind her coming for Ashley either; however, she looks stupid coming for Monique, who was one of her biggest advocates last year. Tossing Monique under the bus to Gizelle (of all people) was stupid. 

 

Candiace is gonna catch hell come reunion time and her new ally, Gizelle, is gonna sit back and watch her burn. 

 

Speaking of RHOP, I am pissed we have to wait until June 30th to get the next episode. Ugh! Next episode is butterknife-gate and when the sh*t hits the fan with the Darbys!

Yeah, I think the women on NY know that showing all aspects of themselves is the show's strength. You cannot make yourself universally loved by the audience all of the time, and that's ok. The interesting thing is that in some ways, Bethenny and Luann react similarly. When they are on a personal/professional high, they become quite narcissistic and arrogant, lording it over the others. When they hit a low, it humbles them, and they become more reflective, clear-eyed and empathetic. Without giving anything away, it is these highs and lows you will see over the course of S9-11 as their relationships evolve and maybe even come full circle.

I actually liked Kyle for once, and that’s only because she called out Erika. Which everyone on this show seems afraid to do. Erika is there to collect a check.

Ratings Update:  Potomac cracked just over a million viewers on Sunday, with no Atlanta lead-in. Small victories!  Also, last week, NYC was inching up, just 100K less than Beverly Hills (1.4m vs. 1.5m), which is dropping.  IMO, if ratings reflected quality, it'd be NYC #1, Potomac #2, BH a distant 3rd.

Yes New York and Potomac. Beverly deserves to keep dropping. It’s the only way to send a message that this season was AWFUL.

RHOP:

 

I can see the theme this season is "feel bad for Ashley Darby" as she mentions the miscarriage every segment and now the other cast members are mentioning it a lot as well.  How much of a kick back is Michael giving Andy or is Andy's stick what Michael really wants to wrap his mouth around?  Ashley wants to take any attention off of Monique's miscarriage, something viewers actually care about.  

 

Chris Samuels, once again, letting moms and everyone else know Monique comes first.  Not sure about Ken (LVP's hubby because I have not watched BH in ages) but Chris has to be the best House husband!  

 

So the congregation is buying Giz a new house?  How wonderful!  It was so fun to see her purposely take Candaice's gossip completely out of context because Giz will forever be jealous of Monique.  She will never be anything but a green eyed bitch!  

 

I will be so happy when Karen takes that platinum trash off her head.  She looks like a clown.  But it will also make me just as happy to see her whip Giz's ass!  

 

Robyn needs a downgrade and the show needs another HW.  Robyn is just boring.  She has nothing to offer this show.

She has Juan... :wub: and you know Andy (and Mr. Darby!) likes that. 

 

I agree she offers very little, but she's a decent supporting housewife who has long ties to the Potomac OG's from years before the show began.
