    S11.E03: It's a Clam Shame

    In her rapid fire way, Bethenny rattled off all of the reasons she couldn't commit to him. I don't understand why she is wearing the ring if she had no intention of marrying him. There's no need to embellish the relationship in order to gain sympathy. It's enough that he was her close friend/lover and it was a difficult loss - fiancé or not.

    I feel the same way. LVP is going to have to do something way more egregious than being a "sniper from the side" for me to dislike her. As I've said before, if the other ladies can't figure out how to work and film with her, then maybe it's their problem, not hers. They've all got their little gripes about each other and things that bother them, but they don't seem to go for the throat with each other as much as they're doing with LVP. Several of them are putting their own version on the story when they weren't even part of the original discussion. They assume the worst of LVP before hearing all of the evidence. Rinna is the worst. She's circling LVP like a rabid dog. She tends to steer the conversations she has with the others into some kind of anti-LVP discussion. She couldn't believe it when Camille said something negative about Dorit. IMO, she wanted her to stay focused on LVP and spill her guts about her issues with her. I work with good people at my office, but we all have our little quirks and annoying habits, but we all basically like each other and put those petty things aside. It's what you do. If these housewives can't manage to figure each other out and find a way to work with each other, then they shouldn't be on the show. I mean, damn, for that kind of money I'd put up with just about anything! If they know that LVP is a sniper from the side, then don't do her bidding for her! Erika wants to feel powerful & sexy, so give her a compliment from time to time. Rinna needs to feel important, so ask her about her career and kids and let her brag on that. Ditto that with Kyle. I read an article about Jackie O. years ago and she had a knack for entering a room and asking other people questions. It wasn't about her. She made other people feel important. I'm not comparing LVP to Jackie O., but just saying that I've seen her ask genuine questions of her co-workers, seeming to really care. So even if she does try to get others to be her mouthpiece, don't play along! Say no, or just don't do it. It's really not that difficult. I don't feel bad for those housewives that feel manipulated by her because they've got a voice and they should use it. This whole thing about "she made me do xyz" is childish. Instead of saying that they need to grow a set of balls, I remember what Betty White once said (or close to it): Balls? Try having a vagina. It really takes a pounding!

    Seriously! She had quite the attitude during that episode, and I didn't care for it one bit! I always thought that LuAnn had an effortless beauty about her, but that uppity attitude is just all kinds of ugly. It's not a good look, LuAnn.

    So true. In the past I tended to give Ramona a pass because sometimes she really does seem like she cares for her friends, but what she said about Dennis goes beyond the pale. She needs to educate herself on the opioid crisis and try to understand what addiction truly is. It was a dumb thing for her to say. I was hoping that she was smarter than that. She knew she effed up when Tinsley and Sonja quickly backed out of that conversation, and good for them for running the other way. I recently had to take a C.E. class and this was the subject. There are certain pain medicines that dental offices can no longer prescribe or simply phone in. It all stems from this issue. The guy who did our seminar works at a drug rehab center and he spoke about how one of the major pharmaceutical companies (I can't remember the name) pushed oxycontin onto the doctors, proclaiming it safe and non-addictive. He also said it came to a point where doctors were sanctioned for not prescribing the drug. It was really eye-opening to hear how this problem got started in the U.S. as relates to doctors prescribing the drug.

    I've always hated when Sonja announced that "her gays," or "the gays" are here whenever she entered a room. Don't they find that offensive?

    This is one of the reasons I like Tinsley. She knows that unless she opened up that caviar, Ramona would've taken it back to the city for her friends. Tinsley bought it, and she deserves to eat some of it! Good for her!

    As I've said before, Kyle demands LVP's loyalty to her no matter what the situation is, but as soon as LVP is on the hot seat, Kyle quickly abandons ship. Way to go, Kyle! Anybody who lets somebody else use them as a puppet is just stupid (as it pertains to this show). If they recognized a pattern with LVP over the years, then they shouldn't have played along with her suggestions. Just say NO!! I learned early on in life not to be a doormat. I would've thought these strong women would've learned that too!

    We've seen the ponies wander around her estate in the past. I think she was being careful with them because she didn't want Denise or her girls to get hurt. The ponies got excited when the dogs tried to play with them. I seriously doubt that she keeps them locked up in the small pen 24/7. For argument's sake, let's say that LVP were to "own her shit" (if she's guilty) and confessed her part in the drama. Do we honestly think these women will be as forgiving to her as they were to Teddi? Rinna is determined that LVP is going down, and I don't think she'll be happy until she's off of the show. LVP could easily turn it back around and put the focus back on the crux of the argument, and that is that Dorit & PK abandoned the dog. I'd turn up the drama and the tears (they seem to respond to that,) and explain that it was always about the safety of the dog. If these women can't understand that, then they really are cold-hearted bitches.

    Denise sure was flying high when she & Aaron met LVP and Kyle for lunch! I wonder if she even remembers having lunch with them!

    I still fail to be impressed with Kyle being able to do the splits. She needs to learn a new trick.

    I felt bad for Camille when she was talking about all of the things she's gone through prior to her 50th birthday, because next it was going to be losing her house to a fire. She's certainly had her share of problems. I wonder if any of the ladies did anything to help her after she lost her house.

    If memory serves me correctly, Dorit seems to always need an apology from someone. She sure has a way of twisting a situation to make herself the victim. Ugh.
  13. Amen! I don't know of any Mom who would throw her kids under the bus like that. The first rule of Mom Club is that you never, ever paint your kids in a bad light with other people, and especially not on TV. You may discuss an issue with a close friend or relative, but you don't get a megaphone and broadcast how your child has let you down. Sheesh, LuAnn!

    S16.E15: Finale

    I remember in past TCs when many of them were making a "beautiful sorbet" in order to cleanse the palate. The judges would clap like trained seals when presented with the sorbet. I haven't heard them mention that one time this season. It was all about being vinegar/acid forward, or some other spice being either too forward or not forward enough. All of the baking shows say the same thing too. Blah, blah, blah forward...…….

    S16.E15: Finale

    I sure hope they fed it to somebody! If not, what a waste. I felt bad for Eric and his sous chefs. He walked back into the kitchen to tell them goodbye, and they had a WTH look. Probably wondering what they were supposed to do next. I hope they don't ever do another finale like that again.
