    10:09 Kody's Secret Plan

    Watching the Browns dig around in dirt is definitely less interesting without the threat of prairie dog plague. I completely zoned out during Kody's ridiculous meeting about the Difficult Brown Compound. It really just highlights how full of shit they are about all the supposed benefits of this lifestyle. According to Kody's own coin slot of a mouth, they don't even want backyards that face either. They would all rather be shot dead than live together in one house/share a kitchen and share child-raising responsibilities, which is the whole freaking point of this bullshit. They just need to face the fact that they are really just "normies" with a haphazard man-sharing plan. Yellow and blonds is a "no" but she looked great for whatever reason. I know this will likely never happen, but part of me wishes Dayton would move to NYC, San Francisco or some other big, expensive city and see what happens. And this is why Christine is enjoying a good relationship with Kody and probably getting the D on the regular. Remember she was the one that didn't even want to say anything negative about the move for fear of upsetting him or being seen as negative. I wish their was devil with little horns emoticon because this is deliciously devilish and delightful!!!

    S11.E18: The Model Bride

    LOL! I am okay with Greg but I've been getting the impression for while now that he likes to think he is wiser than he is. Some of the stuff he says is either total basic common sense or just make you go "huh" because it is nonsensical but the people around him act like he is saying something profound but being in the South that maybe acting respectful towards an elder. I have no problem believing that Greg mean, especially if he is struggling with cancer, but that is different from being abusive, which Nene has not alleged. So I am not gonna to assume that.

    S10:08 Aspyn's Royal Wedding

    For real. Not only are her brows bad, but she makes it all the more worse with terrible eyeshadow too. I don't even know what color the shadow is - like a gray, dark brown or something. Or maybe her brow pencil is bleeding down onto her eyelids. No excuse for this. Meri's hat was indeed terrible. Meri may not be considered edgy by any definition of the word but neither was that. It was like the maker recycled Mykelti wedding garbage flowers. I get the feeling that this was light advertising for the hat maker. Yes, it may look assholey for Meri to have her fix it the night before her son's wedding but the alternative was Meri not wearing it or forced to wear a hat she considered ugly, neither of which would have made the maker of the hat's business look good. I thought what Meri wound up wearing was a marked improvement which was underserved by Meri's bad taste in clothing and shoes.

    S11.E18: The Model Bride

    Lovely wedding and the couple just radiated with love. I preferred Eva's 2nd dress as opposed to the first, mainly because I detested the tiara. Reminded me of something you'd see on Toddlers and Tiaras. I was a bit 'meh' on the venue. I noticed that with the exception of Cynthia, who had her wedding at a museum, the ATL HWs seem to prefer non-traditional venues like warehouses that are blank canvases and have to be swathed in drapes and fabrics in order to be transformed into their vision. I love architecture and interior design so I prefer to see some architectural interest besides white drapes. I would think that would cut down on the design cost. I bet a good deal of Eva's budget went into staging. But she seemed to love it so that is what matters. I actually gasped when they showed snippets of Greg and Nene's wedding this episode. Utterly disrespectful!! Well, we did get Lil Mo signing "4ever" when Dennis proposed. FYI, I put that song back into rotation. I forgot how great her voice is. I miss power singers. Hell, I miss R&B. Elli Mai ain't cutting it.

    S10:08 Aspyn's Royal Wedding

    This shows how half-assedly (hey, if the Browns can make up and misuse words, so can I) I was watching this show. I was so deep into my game of Cookie Jam that I didn't even register what the mother of the brides were wearing. Meri's look from head to toe is an abomination. But I guess you can't expect people who peddle and wear Lularoe to have great taste or wardrobes. The dress is bad enough but beige wedge sandals, that are barely worthy of wear to lunch at your local Outback restaurant, with gold and black evening wearing? She doesn't own a single pair of black pumps or something? Aspyn never seems more like Christine's daughter than when she is acting all gushy about Mitch.

    S10:08 Aspyn's Royal Wedding

    The wedding venue was absolutely stunning. Aspyn and Mitch picked not only the perfect place but the perfect time of year because all the flowers were in full bloom. You know Mykelti, actual flowers and not flowers made out of garbage. Aspyn made a beautiful bride but I didn't love her dress. Kody is always pretty awkward and try hard around non-family but I've noticed that his behavior is that much more egregious and damn near bordering on offensive when he is in a group of guys. Its almost like he is overcompensating for something. One small interesting detail. We now know who is responsible for his new curly lock styles. He said of course, Robyn (and I think he also mentioned Maddie) have been helping him find products and ways to better style his curly locks. It was nice to see Kody pay a modicum of attention to Truly, even if he did offend her by saying they have the same hair. LOL! Did I mishear? Did Robyn say that the mega mansion she is renting costs pretty much the same to rent as the other houses? So a 7 bed/5.5 bath home costs the same to rent as a 3 bed/2-3 bath house? Where they do that at? Its a lucky thing Tony was wearing purple. If he was wearing red and carrying a drink in his hand people might have mistaken him for the Kool-aid man.

    S09.E05: The Proof Hurts

    I will admit that I am worn out with the HW weeps and wrings her hands over a child going to college, but the Umansky scenes were by far my most favorite scenes of the episode. I could happily watch Mo curl his wife's hair for 30 str8 minutes. I am actually weirdly happy for his success and he is my fave franchise husband. However, the Umanskys have questionable test in eye wear. I've never seen so many ugly sunglasses in my life.

    S09.E05: The Proof Hurts

    I didn't see WWHL, but apparently we got the whole 'just wait, all will be revealed later this season and you will all see I (we) were right" from Kyle. I've watched all the HW franchises except NJ, Dallas & Miami and I can't tell you how many times I've heard that shit. What I can tell you is how many times it turned about to be true - Zero and Never. Every time I see Rinna, I think of that old Rodney Dangerfield one-liner:

    S10:07 Divided We Move

    I cackled when no one would ride with Kody on the trip to AZ. However, then I got kinda pissed because it seemed to wasteful to have drive that gas guzzling SUV with only 1 person in it. Couldn't they have consolidated and taken 1 less car? I can't find Mitch as repugnant as Fat Tony, however, Mitch and Aspyn situation just makes me more uncomfortable than Fat Tony and his wife. Fat Tony and Mykelti just seemed equally yoked (annoying and entitled) and they seem to dig one another equally. Why Asypn is so enamored of Mitch is utterly baffling. She seems way more into him that he is her. Plus, there is the whole plyg thing. Mitch says he hasn't heard the 'call' but is open to it. Frankly, I think just being open to it is 'the call'. He just has it on hold until he can finesse Asypn into thinking she heard it too.

    S11.E01: Divided, They Summer

    I am more bummed out about the Lu/Dorinda fallout than I was about Carole and B. I knew Lu and B wouldn't last, but it was great that B was there for her during Lu's time of crisis. A+ reference. Her flirting is embarrassing and cringe-worthy, especially since the majority of the people we see subjected to it are in the service industry. I admit I always wanted to be that girl with 2 dates in 1 night - meeting Mr. X for drinks and Mr. Y for dinner. Sounds exhausting though. With her subtle as a sledge hammer flirt game, do y'all believe Ramona dates as prodigiously as she claims?

    S11.E01: Divided, They Summer

    YAS!!! My fave main bishes are back!!! I was entertained the entire hour. I don't care. I find these women's mundane everyday life more interesting and exciting than what passes as high drama on the other franchises. I also love that with the exception of Tinsley, they don't walk around the house or even the streets with a face beat to the gawds AT. ALL. TIMES and wearing label whore clothes to the point of looking like costumes. BH squad engage a glam squad and does a costume change just to have drinks in their hotel rooms. Loved Luann's and Bs homes. Lu's backyard is so verdant and lush! I feel for B's loss, but I can't help but roll my eyes with her mentions of 'He wanted to marry me. We were engaged. I was wearing his ring.' I don't think Lu owes Dorinda an apology, but Lu definitely needs to fall back and go see if she can find that refreshing attitude and capability for self-reflection she had after her 1st rehab stint. I love me some Lu, but she can be very self-centered and I have no problem seeing her as a high maintenance friend who takes more than she gives. Dorinda was out of pocket, but she was there when no one else was, perhaps to her own detriment. I wonder if Sonja brought that apt or is she renting? Spoiler alert: she did paint that apt pink y'all. https://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-new-york-city/home-design/sonja-morgan-new-apartment-video-tour Duct tape and towels over the windows??? Girl... That is some trap house shit!! I am a verified broke bitch because I didn't even know that Bentley made SUVs. If you haven't driven in 5 years, starting back with a 6 figure car probably isn't the way to go. It seemed incredibly wasteful and ridiculous to send a car, a Bentley no less to someone who hasn't driven in 5 years so they can drive to the Hamptons. Just rent a freaking car!! Tinsley was being entirely too extra with all the screaming or dramatics. It is a car not Elon Musk's Space X shuttle.

    S11.E16: Bye Wig, Hello Drama

    I love me some funky Dineva. I've been bereft that she hasn't been posting about the RHATL as often so I am so glad to see him post about the latest episode. Let me get my earbuds and listen at my desk while I "work."

    S09.E04: Bahama Drama

    Oh Lawd be my savior with this petty BH drama. What should amount to 2 episodes at most is likely to stretch out the entire season? Seriously, 2 of these HW are living a whole life build on fallacies & lies and we've spent already 4 episodes on a pet adoption gone bad? We got broke, square titted Dorit getting heckled on the beach for scamming investors and her husband who owes everyone, including a Vegas casino millions (if this were the 50s or 60s, he'd be taking a dirt nap out in the LV desert) and no one mentions this shit? Erika whose octogenarian husband is up to his liver spotted bald head in $15m of debt and allegedly has a whole mistress on the side, but mums the word while we have to listen to the most stilted cold phone call between a husband and wife EVER. Erika might as well have been talking to Alexa for all the warmth and true sentiment exchanged between those two. At least Alexa wishes you a good morning/afternoon/night on occasion. Why are the BH's real lives so worthy of protection? I am not buying the whole wanting to project extreme wealth BS either. Kyle yammered on and on about her dumb show but yet not a peep about it being canceled? I don't blame Lucy for biting PK on the face. She probably thought his face was a boiled ham about to go bad. The whole "LVP manipulates me" storyline is just so weak and tired and it is not because I don't believe it is true. LVP is a plotting ass woman. I don't believe that Teddi and the 2 Johns (sounds like porno) hatched this thing out together without Lisa's knowledge. However, at what point does anyone take personal accountability?? Is she casting spells over the other women?? How are grown women REPEATEDLY being mind controlled by the same person who was called out as manipulative 7 seasons ago. Are they zombies?? The Walking Dead? Teddi played herself. She does not and will never have direct proof that Lisa is the puppet master. Lisa (and Ken) will always have plausible deniability. I despise Dorit. Just absolutely despise. She is a cartoon villain. I can't believe she had the gall and bladder to say this was about her and not the dog and also to say the problem isn't a direct result of her failing to return the dog to LVD. Fuck is wrong with that crazy bitch! Never trust a bitch with a faux accent. Don't give me that some people are suspectible to accents and adopt them due to proximity. Dorit's accent comes off as someone who has English as a 2nd language. Her speech is so belabored that you think she is doing an English translation in her head. Can we offer the woman who heckled Dorit on the beach and spilled all her tea on the blog a diamond to hold? I really need someone to put Dorit and PK on 100% blast. Rolex watches are big, clunky and ugly and I don't get the fascination and pay tens of thousands for that mess.

    S11.E16: Bye Wig, Hello Drama

    Excuse you. Prostitution whoring is WERK!!!! It ain't honest but it pays the bills (until the men realize dealing with that much crazy ain't worth Staub's Nobel Laureate head game). Say what you will about Nene's special brand of crazy, but this episode brang it! Most reviewed of the season with 3 whole pages of commentary.
  15. islandgal140

    S11.E16: Bye Wig, Hello Drama

    Did I hear right? Did Nene say on WWHL that she was cast in a show that was filming in Canada? Who keeps hiring her? It really kinda irks given there are so many struggling black actresses out there. Yeah, the more she wanted to keep people out, the more intrigued I became by its possible contents. Yes, this was quite sad to hear damn near all the women remark that they felt naked, incomplete, less than without a ton of fake hair. Just an indication that it is less about style and more of a crutch/armor.

    S11.E16: Bye Wig, Hello Drama

    At this point, Kandi is just showing up to these events for the free meals. In her defense though, those crab legs looked good as hell!!! This was a good episode. The producers were messy as fuck. Those time stamps were a precursor to fuckery!!! I really, really had trouble following the Marlo/Nene argument. I get that Gregg urgently texted Marlo twice to go to Nene and be there/comfort her, Marlo drops everything (e.g. hair/nail appt) to rush over to Nene fearing the worst. This is where I lose the thread. Was Nene home and just refuse to let Marlo thru the gates and in the house or was she not home and out shopping? Both kinda suck, but the latter sounds kinda callous given blot clots are deadly and her going out to run errands while Gregg was in surgery the week before. I think Marlo was truly was alarmed by Gregg's text and trying to be a good friend. Nene was just an asshole all around. I don't understand her yelling for Marlo to 'just support her' when really, Marlo dropping everything to run to be at her side is supporting her. WTF does Nene want? Just blind allegiance and parroting whatever Nene wants her to. After Kandi said this though, we saw Porsha open up a side door and say 'oh here it is' or something to that effect. Kandi then opened another door and exclaimed almost the same thing. We then hear Porsha say Nene's closet was "goals." Nene didn't lose her shit until the cameraman was making his way into her closet. So strange. So aggressive. There was no excuse for her behavior. Tanya is a good one and better than me. When all that vomiting was going on she was just getting towels and wiping up and being chippy chirpy. LOL! She is growing on me but I am can't say that she is a fit, but I like the fresh air she brings so far.

    S09.E02: Eat Your Heart Out

    LVP's problem in this situation, and frankly in all her situations with fights she has with HW on this show, is saying everything is cool when clearly she still harbors deep resentment about what happened. She will say all is forgiven and profess her love but will take jabs which dips just a smidge towards unkind but with laughter in her eyes and in her voice and say she is only joking, but it happens too frequently and pointedly to feel and seem like "only joking" to the person on the receiving end.

    S09.E02: Eat Your Heart Out

    I am liking Denise. However, why the fuck! would she have her daughter call whoremongering Charlie Sheen to ask for dating advice??!?! Granted, I know that is his daughter and the advice wasn't the worst in the world, but the man clearly had/has mental health, substance and hyper-sexuality issues and I side eye opening the door to that, especially if they still have a contentious relationship and haven't reached mutual child rearing decisions - like no dating until 16. Denise's beach house is nice. Views and bones of the house are fab but that kitchen is screaming for a makeover. Rinna claims to never having been anorexic or bulimic? OK. However, I still think she suffers from disordered eating and an unhealthy relationship with food. I am tired of the LVP dog piling and not for the reason of most. I actually do think LVP is strategic. I think she has allies, not necessarily friends and I can't say I dislike her for that because she is winning on her terms. Really, at this point 9 seasons into the game, these women are just mad (and tired) that they aren't smart enough to outmaneuver her machinations. These dummies will never learn. If their asses can't take her out in prior seasons when the playing field was level, they for damn sure can't when she has personal tragedy and audience sympathy on her side. I'm seeing an attempt to try to pin this on Teddi and I ain't buying. She is just really, really not the type and I will officially see LVP as overplaying her hand if she tries. LVP is indeed a master chess player. These bitches can barely play Chutes and Ladders. Anyone notice how last episode, LVP took the girls to the back of her pet store and mentioned that that area was to house dogs and see if they have behavioral issues, like biting, before they get adopted out. She is setting herself up to not look liable and implied it was standard practice that Lucy before received prior to being adopted out to Dorit. Plus, I can't with the 'you sold _____ story to the tabloids' BS again. Seriously, why don't they ever consider that the stories could have easily been sold/planted by any of their numerous messy ass employees (looking at LVPs people), assistants, Bravo production, store clerk at a shop where they have a loud ass convo while buying over-priced t-shirt dresses and other ugly 80's inspired clothing, waiters at restaurants they order food they don't eat at, etc. Can't help it, I love Kyle's new home. Some of the decor has the stench of the morally corrupt Faye Resnick's interior design by numbers basic ass aesthetic but the house and grounds are gorg and my fave.

    S11.E15: Let's Make It Official

    I don't know about the longevity of that relationship but I was happy for Porsha. Nice to see her get the dream she had been dreaming and crying for for years all in one fell swoop - a man, love, a child and an engagement. The whole time watching the proposal, I was thinking Kenya would still have a paying job if she had done this. That ring was ridiculously large. Is it real? Is Dennis's pockets large like that? Even flip flopping spineless Cynthia is taken aback by Nene. Cyn looked stunning in her new talking head in the red dress and big curly wig. I don't understand her wine venture but I wish her the best. Lawd, when Margo is calling your ass out as selfish ... Its a wrap!! I've never been in the position of caretaker but my mother sure as hell has to my dad who had 2 bouts of cancer and now heart failure I know it is thankless. Dad seems a jovial saint to all others but takes out all his ire on my mom. We can't afford maids, caregivers, nurses or chefs. The chef and maid part would be a god send, but I digress. So in some respects, I get it with Nene. Where she loses me however, is in the pettiness of her complaints and almost seeming to not get that the man is facing his morality dead in the face. She wants to sit in a bar for drinks with Greg? The man has a colostomy bag - maybe he doesn't feel comfortable or well enough to be doing that. She doesn't feel supported but when he asks her what stuff she has going on, she catches an attitude.

    S10:04 Kody's Shocking Move

    Whoever said the point is to get ahead? They aren't smart or disciplined enough for that. The point is to 'get over' and move on to the next grift.

    S10:04 Kody's Shocking Move

    This move is all a financial shell game with Kody and Dollar Tree Lady MacBeth Robyn at the steering wheel, but they all know the deal - the jig is up. Kody and the harem financed their houses with interest only mortgages. So that keeps their mortgage payments low for a certain amount of years (typically 5-7 yrs) since they aren't paying down on the principal. Kody and his harem brought their houses in 2012 so yeah, if they went with a 7 year interest only mortgage, their time is up this year. Now they have to pay interest + principal, which in most cases raises the monthly payment exponentially. Ergo, this recent "we need to get the fuck up out of here for our financial stability" bullshit. Stop playing, they can no longer afford to live there. If that were true, Kody wouldn't have said no to Christine staying behind. The only good thing that could be said about Kody's new do is that at least it looks moisturized. During his 3rd grade presentation, his hair looked like if a rain of sunshine or even a light bulb over 60 watts had shone down on him on the right spot, it would have burst into flames. Dry!!! LOL! I don't think Aspyn's eyes are so much beady as they are just super far apart. She is one of my fave kiddos and I was hoping for better for her marriage wise. Can't believe she was crushing on that for years. Aside from size and hair color, Ariella and King Saul look exactly, EXACTLY alike. For a minute there I thought Saul was the one being carried by Robyn. It is almost eerie.

    S10.E02: Sister Wives Secrets

    I don't like Meri and her passive aggressive 'nothing is ever her fault' ways, but I don't fault her for not fucking with Janelle EVER. Divorced her brother and turned around and became wife #2 to Meri's husband behind her back. This is some low down dirty shit but than again I am looking at this through the prism of someone outside the lifestyle. I mean didn't Meri's mom marry Kody's dad? Speaking of Meri's mom, I LOL'ed when the wives were talking about what would become of them once all the kids were gone and if they would all live in one big house. All they have to do is look at Meri's mom to see what will happen. Where are her sister wives? She was basically living alone and now living alone in a B&B. So basically Meri is using these other women's catfish tales to nail herself more firmly to her victimhood cross. I'm loving that Mariah isn't here for any of it. Mariah's whole attitude is "Bitch, I was there." I haven't kept up on Brown gossip in the off-season. Can someone tell me why we now hate Mariah's girlfriend? During the move, they showed a side profile shot of Janelle leaning against a car outside. I thought she was awkwardly holding a large black bag of dirty laundry or something in front of her. Nope. That was all Janelle. Didn't this show used to be like 1/2 hour? Did we really need to see Kody struggle with and then cut a lock off a trailer only to decide they didn't need the trailer anyway? Do better TLC.

    S08.E05: 'Til Mud Do Us Part

    "Repulsed and dead inside" "Repulsed and dead inside" "Repulsed and dead inside" Lukewarm is a dramatic lil' bitch. That is some shit you say about pedophiles, sex trafficking or horrific war crimes. Not about a consensual kiss with an attractive young woman. Not only is this cruel and savage but it is cruel and savage for absolutely no reason. He didn't have to say that and he shouldn't have. He could've just kept his mouth shut or more kindly state that he wasn't feeling any chemistry with her. But no, he has to dramatically run to the bathroom like Marcia Brady and proclaim he is "repulsed and dead inside." I admit that although I felt for Kate, I didn't think much of her for thinking there was a solution to this - like time. If someone kisses you and states it made them feel "repulsed and dead inside" the only solution is to pack your shit and leave. AJ always seems borderline drunk to me. Apart from his 3 meals a day shit, lack of motivation/couch surfing (which in my personal life is a deal breaker), Keith seems like he could be malleable for a woman that isn't opposed to a project and raising a grown ass man. Something bothers me about Will and Jasmine but I can't quite put my finger on what.

    S11.E12: The Peaches of Tokyo

    That is all that needs saying. Marlo seemed so out of sorts not being able to set up her hotel room pop up designer shop. I hate wispy thin wigs. So I wasn't here for Marlo's struggle ponytail. Eva? I don't even see how it would be comfortable to travel with braids down to your ankles. I like the least amount of contact between me and public surface areas, especially when traveling. Seriously, you have to take care not to be sitting on your hair all the time, not get it caught in doors & escalators, not brush up against nasty walls and floors in public restrooms (or in the toilet itself) cause at the end of the day you have to sleep in a bed with that mess. I don't have a caregiver gene so I feel for Nene in that regard. Being sick and needing is one of my biggest fears. Having to be a caregiver to a sick person is my next greatest fear. That being said, Nene is a bitch. Count me among those who can't wait to see her get left next week. LOL!
