  1. It’s funny but I think she reads as “older” even in the Poison Arrow video, and she was 22 then. It’s almost to me like she hasn’t aged—obviously I don’t mean that literally, but that she doesn’t really look “old” OR “young” to me. I’m not like “WOW, I can’t believe she’s 58!” but I hope I look that “old” at near-60, LOL In other news, my friend posted this old interview with LVP (or as Tucker keeps saying, “Lisa Vanderplump”) and John Sessa on Tucker Carlson. It was just interesting to see them together two years ago. Sessa seems to have a will of his own, not like her lackey or anything.
  2. Giselle, I liked your thoughts on the cast’s reasoning for getting involved in the show, and and agree with the statement above. My favorite moment of this episode was seeing Kyle and LVP laughing together... And actually, as goofy as Denise was at dinner, that whole segment was kind of fun. Even Kyle “casually stopping by” The Agency wasn’t bad. I wish we had more simple moments in the show. I’m not the hugest fan of Kyle, but she, IMO, is the one who delivers the most and the best “normal” moments on the show. Her older daughters don’t overact for the camera, she has the cutest dogs, she has the best parties, and her scenes with Mauricio are the most relaxed of the bunch.
  3. I would love to go back to Feinstein’s at the Nikko—great sound, talented people, decent food and drink! It’s so small that there really aren’t any “bad” seats. PS is your friend’s name Samantha? (Kidding)
  4. Feinstein’s at the Nikko. Very small and definitely a cabaret space (it functions as one regularly... Broadway stars, cabaret-type singers, jazz singers...) Here’s the seating chart for the venue where I saw Luann. Def not 3500 seats 😉 I used to go to Chicago for work and my office was right down the street from the Chicago Theatre. The last time I was there, Erasure was in town the night I was leaving! I was so tempted to extend my stay. My screen name is based on some antiques I collect 🙂
  5. Holy Cow! That’s an expensive hate watch! 🤣 I got the “cheap seats” in SF and I paid just slightly more for TWO tickets (when you take service fees into account)! I’ve never been to the Chicago Theatre but one of the cool things was that the lounge where I saw her was pretty small, and I’m guessing that theatre is pretty large?
  6. Re-tool? I see what you did there, Bunny...
  7. You folks make me laugh (as always). I have seen the show and I will say that I think it depends on a few things. * Your tolerance for “the Countess” * Whether or not you like cabaret-style performances * Who the “and friends” are * Who you go with * The venue * Your tolerance for food and drink minimums I went with another housewife-loving friend, with whom I always joke about the Countess. For us, it was a highly memorable night out. I’m glad I went but honestly, the “friends” were the musical highlights.

Yea, verily, Dorit, please sharest thine wisdom with us unto this day, for we are not done learning our lesson from the Parable of Lucy, Lucy, Apple Juicy.

    S07.E15: Trouble in Lala-land

    I don’t disagree that she could benefit from help for her insecurities and temper, but if she’s “overweight” it’s in her mind. (Or James’) She’s not TV thin, or LA thin, but in real life she looks great. Yesterday while watching the aforementioned first-season episode, I actually thought she looked too thin and weirdly angular.

    S07.E15: Trouble in Lala-land

    I thought it was ironic that she told Billie to go back to Charlotte Russe... I was thinking that Lala’s dress looked like a Forever 21 version of JLo’s (even if it was the real thing, it looked like a knockoff). The other thing that cracked me up is that early on the episode, LVP was making jokes about the cut of Kristen’s dress... and then later, almost all the other girls were wearing dresses that were just about as low cut. I was watching S1 E2 yesterday afternoon, and LVP’s disdain for Kristen was already on display... along with a mention that Sandoval had his license suspended and Kristen used to have to drive him around.

    Maybe I have lived in the Bay Area too long, but $300 for a mashed potato bar doesn’t seem that out of line for catering.

    I wonder if he was getting a Real ID license—Homeland Security is going to start requiring them next year. CA was kind of slow to start offering them, and they’re kind of a PITA to get, so maybe he was killing two birds with one stone.

    “The most Scheana thing that Scheana’s ever Scheanaed.” LOL You know what would be awesome? If James were forced to call out food orders while he was at the DJ booth. I know SUR isn’t that kind of place, but hearing him be all “Make some nooooiiiiise... Goat cheese balls up for Table 12” would be everything. That dude needs some serious humbling. He’s so far from professional, he’s just phony. And don’t get me started on Raquel. James’ crap behavior “effects her relationships with the girls”=she has nowhere near the screen time she thought this free ticket onto TV would bring her. She seems nice enough, I’m sure she could find SOME way to make friends.
  14. Hmm, later she said this: By the way, I don’t follow Lisa on Twitter, but because I went to look for this tweet, I saw that she DID retweet a video of dogs as the “bridal party” at a friend’s wedding! Wow, small world.
  15. I love Ancient Harvest Corn/Quinoa pasta and CrunchMaster crackers—and I don’t have a gluten issue, they’re just delicious! oh—and Pamela’s Whenever Bars: also delicious. I ADORE Don’t Go Nuts bars—and I stockpile those for traveling to make sure I have a nut-free snack. They’re also GF. If Bethenny can enter the Top 8-free market with good snacks, more power to her. (She’ll act like she invented it, but whatever)
