  1. I think I will need to put a bucket near me when I watch later tonight. Goodness, I hope this doesn't descend into StefaNO plotting to trigger Abby's DID so Gabby can come out to play.

    S08.E21: Reunion Part 3

    Erika herself has said she doesn't have or keep female friends and this past season proves why. Kyle has been saying this all season long, I guess in an effort to get Kathy to believe it. That all went to hell when they showed a clip and Kyle said "that is exactly what my mom used to say to us all the time." Girl, what?!!? It is more than 'inspired' by if the main character is directly quoting your mama.
  3. The conversation between Kate and Marlena was good. I find it interesting and within character for Kate to see the possibility that Andre didn't love her and in fact, thinks Viv might have been behind his declaration of love in order to make Kate 'love blind' to Andre's plotting. That just further adds to Kate's anger and is setting up for the Kate/Viv showdown. That is a nice added beat. I don't look to this show for medical accuracy but it did seriously bother me that Marlena thought it was okay for a laymen like Chad to walk Abby (with a real and serious past filled with mental illness) through the events that caused her DID without a mental health professional present. I liked that Hope brought it up but Marlena's explanation was the worst! Ugh that phone conversation between Marlena and Kayla about StefaNO was so ridiculous and heavy handed. Saying he was bringing back the curse and just like dear old daddy. We get it already. We got it when the show named him Stefan O. We just ain't buying what they are trying to sell. So does this means Abby is supposed to be StefaNO's Queen of the Night? Abby barely qualifies as Lady of Noon. I was cheering Steve when he was roughing up StefaNO in his own hospital bed. I just wished he had used his cane. Count me in as being surprised Viv copped to her plan so quickly. Eve deserves so much better than Brady. There really is a dearth of men on the canvas, especially when it seems half the new men in the 30 age range fall inexplicably in love with Abby. I'm loving that everyone, EVERYONE, isn't hesitating to call it rape. But why isn't anyone looking into charges? I am just praying to the soap gawds that we aren't in for a who's the daddy storyline. Can the show please, please stop playing flashbacks to the rape? Where the hell did Jennifer go? And JJ? He is like a cagey squirrel (with an AARP card) in all his scenes. I really wish Sonny was root worthy. As it is, I don't care what happens to him. I'm glad no one was around when I ugly chortled at Leo being called 'young.' I guess it is all relative since Viv and Kate where the ones doing it.

    S08.E21: Reunion Part 3

    I'm sorry I think it is very weird to have converted to Judaism for your husband and not know if he had relatives that died in the Holocaust?!?! No one was asking for a specific # or names. Her not being able to say yes or no is truly, truly fucked up. But I bet she can catalog every purse, piece of clothing and jewelry she lost in the burglary. Catch that! LVP's last minute push for the audience members to give Dorit another chance sounds like it was at the behest of PK. They need this check. I guess Boy George and swimsuits are barely keeping the lights on.
  5. This is actually what I like about them. Rarely do people just date in Salem. I'll take this over falling desperately in love with a new soulmate every 6-8 months (looking at you Brady).

    Spoilers And Shockers

    They had a scene about 2 weeks ago where Victor and Maggie were discussing Theresa and Victor almost told her the real reason why she left but stopped himself. Then they had a scene with Victor on the phone alluding to him getting someone to help with Theresa's situation. I had assumed that Victor was calling Shane, but looks like it was Xander. Interesting. A thousand yeses to topless Xander. Is he here for a short stint, recurring or on contract? Inquiring and lustful minds want to know. The show is stupid to get rid of Vivian. She is the best villain they have on screen - fun, intriguing and a great foil for Kate, Victor, Chad, well everyone. Now all we are left with is bewigged Stefan and they don't seem sure what the hell they want to do with him. Don't know how I feel about a Kristen re-cast. Firstly, Eileen in that role is iconic. Secondly, I've become a bit burn out on the character because the short stints have done a disservice to the role and the show - baby switch and its culmination was one of the worst Days storyline primarily because Eileen couldn't be present. I had to look up Stacy Haiduck I've seen her in a few things and I think she has that certain something to be a good villainess so if they have to recast I am tentatively optimist because of the casting.
  7. No truer words. If I was Gabi, mental illness or not, I would be kicking Abby in the throat on sight. ON. SIGHT. It would be like pressing start on an ass whooping machine the moment I clapped eyes on her. The bitch wrecked her life, put her through mental and physical anguish, and ripped her out of her daughter's life. To make matters worse, I doubt Gabi will even be allowed to have resentment towards Abby. Everyone in town is going to be pleading Abby's case, acting like Abby is the true victim and Gabi will be made to feel like the bad guy when she is the one who has suffered the most while Abby was traipsing around the world and laid up under Stefan and his wig.

    S01.E08: Terror Camp Clear

    I feel this episode could be summed up in two words: FUCKING HICKEY!!!
  9. The actor who plays Ben is so much more tolerable when he plays crazy. When he was playing bland boyfriend in instalove with Abby all I could see were his overly curated and manicured looks and super long spindly arms. Yes, I agree with whoever said Abby has more chem with Ben than Chad and StepheNO. Their locked room scene was very effective. I didn't like that Kate was the one to tell Chad about Abby's mental illness. I definitely felt that should have been a conversation between Marlena and Chad. Probably overheard that Andre was actually behind all the shenanigans that caused Dimera Enterprises to lose business deals, conspired with Stefan and Viv to take over DiMera, oust Chad as CEO and take their home. Abby advocated for Andre above and beyond the call of duty. Telling both Chad and Kate that no way was Andre behind it and he is loyal to family and Dimera Enterprises. You can also say that Andre is just as responsible for Theo being shot as Kate/JJ since if he hadn't been doing any of this there would have been no need for Theo to be there. I really should have known that something was up because they had Abby get really sappy over Andre. Tossing "I love Andre" way too much and waxing poetic over him. It was kinda hilarious that in the span of Theresa's absence Brady has fallen deeply in love and proposed to 2 women in what?? ... 2 years or less? I wouldn't begrudge someone moving on but to have fallen in love 2 times and proposed or been on the cusp sounds like a flighty dope. I really and truly just CAN. NOT. with Brady's love life. That character needs some rest on the backburner's backburner. But no. Now we have 2 sisters fighting over him. Sounds like a letter to Penthouse Forum. No thanks. I predict I'll be FF'ing this triangle with extreme prejudice. The only good thing likely to come out of this is my baby I find Maggie to be her most tolerable when she is interacting with Lucas. Chloe looked so pretty in her Mexico scenes. Her hair has been looking softer. I always used to wonder if she wore a wiglet but it looked a bit more natural lately. However, I've never really cared for the character. I think I will never see past Dr. Dan's gland exam of Chloe. I am forever traumatized by that scene. Also, the actress does have a very flat effect and there is a constant deer in the headlights look to her eyes, which are her most prominent (and beautiful) feature.
  10. What did Bethenny say about Adam?

    S10.E05: Tea for Tat

    It was kinda ridiculous but the over the top falling to the floor and caterwauling into his chest wasn't the worst of it to me. The cringe came into it for me with the dead flower bit. Telling him that she was keeping them until they got back together and then asking him if she should/could now throw them out. All the talk of her being light, fun and keeping it cute got napalmed. Dude literally just walked through the door, they haven't even discussed their issues or got re-acclimated after not seeing each other and she springs that?!?! Scott's awkwardness became a palpable thing. Mom is suspect too. Inviting down for Christmas and knitting him a stocking? It just seems convenient that they got back together just as filming began. Let's see what happens after the season is done airing. Tinsley seems high maintenance, spoiled, shelter and needy but some men love that. For some reason, I can see a Shannon/David (RHOC) dynamic developing between them - poor little rich girl vs self made dude. She says she is fascinated by him because he isn't a trust fund baby like her usual men and friends, but that means dude actually has to work for his money and can't jet off with her just because and likely values a dollar and budgets for shit. We'll see.

    S10.E05: Tea for Tat

    I immediately thought of Gob from Arrested Development Run Scott, Run. For real. For that type of money I want that Gwyneth Paltrow Goop type shit. You know, made from the milk of rare Himalayan organic Yak milk, guava grown in the most remote regions in Central America, black truffles and yarubi melons. She maybe problematic about some things but Luanne truly lived up to her Countess title and practice what she preached about etiquette with how classy she was when being blindsided by Missy AGAIN because of Ramona's nasty messy ass. Well done! Bethanny is a big money boss. I can't wait to see her newly renovated apt. That closet alone in NYC is friggin' insane!
  13. I really enjoyed Monday and Tuesday's episode. Dr. Laura is really a terrible gatekeeper. Isn't a gatekeeper supposed to control the personality switches and who is at the helm? The gate might as well be locked with a stick of old chewing gum. JJ seems oddly removed and emotionless when telling the real Gabi about Abby with the bad wig, to the point I almost forgot he was Abigail's brother. I kept wishing Jennifer had stepped on Stefan's oxygen hose. I thought the scene was well played by both but part of the jaded me kept thinking that in the end I bet all three - Chad/Abby/Stefan - will all wind up living back in the DiMera mansion in the not so distant future. Ridiculous!! Tyler finally found a scene to play to his low energy acting range - weak, barely conscious and gasping for breath in a hospital bed. Can't be said enough, the three soap divas in the tunnels are EVERYTHING! It kinda makes me realize how much they are wasting Louise Sorel in the Sonny and the world's oldest temp storyline. She should be butting heads and plotting vs. Kate. Their rivalry is delicious. I LOL'ed at John giving Trask his patented stink eye.

    S08.E20: Reunion Part 2

    He was. It was at home in their kitchen and Erica brought him a cup of coffee/tea. It was memorable to me only because it seemed like their relationship hadn't progressed past hot young waitress brings her rich old best tipping customer a cup of joe and makes stilted small talk. Erika says she has no prenup, she has been married for nearly 20 years and she lives in a community property state. I think she would do quite well in a divorce, but yeah, definitely reduced glam squad, private jets and Erika Jayne touring on a luxury megabus. Maybe she wouldn't be such a sourpuss if she was "getting some" from a young stud on the regular. Bitch might actually get some joy in her life. LOL!

    S08.E20: Reunion Part 2

    Is it just me but was anyone else a little perplexed when Kyle did not shed one single tear over losing all her mother's jewelry, expensive handbags and clothing and not to mention the violation of a burglary? I mean not even a voice quaver. Yet she stays shedding tears over feeling slighted by LVP and Dorit? Just me? I mean if you are gonna pick something to cry about, pick the former! Buy, hey, I guess we are all different. Lastly, this bitch did not need to be 3 parts. I mean did we really need to see these chicks eating lunch and hugging it out in hallways? Come on now. That tells me they barely had enough material. Plus, this episode seemed really clip heavy to me. Just trying to get water out of stone.

    S08.E20: Reunion Part 2

    This reunion Erika alternated between being a robot in power saving mode and heinous bitch when someone switched her 'on' button (e.g. talking about herself and playing captain save a ho to Dorit). Dorit: "I don't want to talk about specifics" Of course you don't because the devil is in the details - your lies. Pissed me off that no one called her out on some of the outright lying she did. Teddi had her dead to rights. Dorit does gaslight but she also projects. Who brings up old shit and won't let shit die more than Dorit? Nobody! Queen Camille got a new diamond on her ring finger and may have gotten herself a diamond in the palm of her hand as a full time HW next season and I am here for it!

    S10.E04: War and P.O.S

    I kinda remember this and it was Sonja at her most pathetic and sad. I just remember her taking particular care to dress, wear her hair and makeup the way he liked, which by the looks of it seems he likes the patrician look. There seemed to be a "Story of Us" starring Sonja and JPM behind every article of clothing, jewelry and even the perfume she wore. All designed I imagine to invoke some type of nostalgia in him and soften his hardened heart. The impression I got was that if she could just get in a room with him and talk all would be alright i.e., he would be generous and throw a couple of sack of gold coins her way and make all her money troubles go away. Now I can't tell you if she was expecting full reconciliation, have him divorce his wife and re-marry her or she was willing to settle for being a mistress or she would just settle for $$$ but she was expecting something that would better her situation. Welp, he didn't show - just his lawyers. Plan foiled!! After the failed meetup, I don't believe Sonja bad mouthed him she was just angry that he would have nothing to do with her, see her or talk to her. I get the impression that he only deals with her to parent their daughter and is totally cold towards her.

    S10.E04: War and P.O.S

    For someone who looks like a Marvel villain and has made his fortune in predatory financing Dennis was indeed underwhelming. I was expecting shades of Anthony Scaramucci (the "Mooch") for some reason. Eloquent and poignant post. Thanks for sharing. Reading this made me think of a moment when Bethenny seemingly agreed with Sonja that death and divorce were equivalent. At one point B said something like 'the guy is still walking around' and at the time I thought she said it in a bit of a wistful, wishful way that maybe she wished Jason had died.

    S10.E04: War and P.O.S

    Everyone show up in running gear. Oh, or better yet, 1980s workout gear. This is a better look than most of them were wearing anyway.
  20. What I was shouting during the entire Chad/Stefan scene: During this entire pivotal, high emotional payoff reveal Tyler is sitting there like he is waiting for his Tall, Non-Fat Latte With Caramel Drizzle at Starbucks. WTF is wrong with this guy? Stefan is truly irredeemable to me. I would find this slightly more believable but no less offensive if he was doing all this just to jack with Chad, but no he is in wub with Gabby. I was right along with Chad with wanting to vomit at the sight of those 2 in bed. Usually Chad's stuttering gets on my nerves, but it at least worked in that scene. Where the hell is Jennifer? I know she is on a sweet love hangover with Eric but jeez show, feels like she should have been folded into this story by now. It was weird that she seemed to go back to business as usual after Abby's MRI came back normal knowing that psychology issues (which Abby has had in the not so distant past) don't show up in those kind of tests. I thought it was stupid for Chad not to share with her that Abby lied about spending the night with her. As usual, the best part of the show were the Marlena, Kate and Viv in the secret room. They are gonna be there a while since crazy is on the run and Stefan in the hospital, presumably unconscious. LOL! at Gabby on the run. She flees the house in a rush but takes the time to dress in her best cheap floozy wear. Priorities! I wasn't expecting the Raines g/f twist. Heard Sheila (T-Boz) was set for an appearance and thought she was going to be the one to beat down Gabi.

    S10.E21: Reunion Part 3

    You have greater faith in these non-black women married to black men than I ever had. Kim K. associates with whole ass racist Jeffree Star, social media makeup guru, who has made tons of racists remarks directly geared at black women. https://www.allure.com/story/jeffree-star-kim-kardashian-feud-trump-tweets

    S10.E21: Reunion Part 3

    Bye Wig!!! And take Joggers with ya! I have absolutely despised Kim since she did Kandi dirty over DBTFP. That right there told me everything I needed to know about that slore - she is an amoral user, liar and thief who would step on her own mother for a dollar. So I am truly elated that Kandi appears to have finally 'closed the door' on Kim, but I couldn't help but cackle that Kim essentially stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from her wasn't enough. It took the allegation of box licking to do it. LOL! Kim has absolutely no relationship with the truth! None. Kandi should've re-enacted her S9 reunion best moment. Sheree was the worst of them all. I feel like she didn't take her hand out of her hair the whole time. I am sure it was because she was getting roasted and she could smell the end was near. I can't stand the stuttering and halted way of speaking Sheree adopts when she is lying her lying ass off. I loved that as the reunion moved along, Nene got more and more dismissive of Sheree. There was this weird prominent bump on the side of her nose. I am assuming it was some type of botox injection but why did it only appear when she started to cry?
  23. So.... um... basically Stefan raped the Abby out of Gabby?!?! That just happened right? WTF?!? I condemn this storyline to the pits of hell and I rebuke it in the name of the Lawd! I've been somewhat spoiler free so count me as flabbergasted at this latest development. Some part of me just believed that the show wouldn't cross that line. Not only did they cross it, they squatted and took a shit over it. WTF?!?! This makes ejami's romance look like The Notebook. There is no redeeming this mess and they sure as hell better not be a pregnancy/who the daddy s/l. I've said it before and I will say it again, the worst part of this storyline is the Gabby/Stefan "romance." I would have preferred Abby sex up crazy Ben Weston than StefaNOPE. At least we know Ben's ass is crazy too and it makes more sense than Stefan falling inexplicably head over heels with human dryer lint Abby on sight. I really enjoyed everything else this episode. My favorite was of course Marlena, Kate and Viv in the basement. I even enjoyed the Hope/Rafe scenes of them trying to find out who the mystery woman is. That basement is getting a little crowded. Gabby needs to stop playing whack-a-mole. I loved when Viv slapped Gabby. Took me back to when we all called Abby Slappy (portrayed by Mansi) when she was righteously (wrongly) going around slapping people for rightly calling her out on her strumpet ways. We've got three and even adding all those up you don't come up with one compelling character. I guess it was something like an ebay auction - they come out in the last 2 minutes to get that coveted bag of bras. I don't care for either Claire nor Ciara. Personally, I have become visually disturbed by Claire. I do like that Theo actually said no and stuck to it. I hope Stefano takes off with Stable Mabel and she develops one more personality - Lorena Bobbit and gives him the deepest cut of all.

    S10.E03: Til Brunch Do Us Part

    70 years would have been more Jim Crow era than slavery but I could see Ramona down with the separate but equal (not) times. I had the exact same fleeting thought. In fact, I was thinking of the scene in To Kill of Mockingbird when Tom Robinson is asked to come in and "bust up a chiffarobe" for Mayella.

    S10.E03: Til Brunch Do Us Part

    Whether Dorinda's rant was drunk, lit, tipsy or stone cold sober it delivered and I. AM. DELIVERT. You hear me? Dorinda spilled a whole urn of hot scalding delicious tea - Sonja was fucking around on JPM, he divorced her ass and married her friend. Sonja always played it coy (i.e. lied by omission or otherwise) on the reasons for the divorce and many blogs speculated that she cheated but now Dorinda has confirmed and I believe every single word.
