Why is Carole wearing that at lunch? She looks horrible, her hair is just not good shorter or that color. She and Tinsley’s little girl sista act is crazy-crazy. 

 

Also, f-u direct tv which goes bad every time it rains...gonna be a long summer. I can’t comment on the sit down because it’s just not playing. The only time I miss NJ is when the tv isn’t going to work because....rain! ?

That’s the big joke about direct tv - when there is bad weather, that’s when you really want to watch tv, but the dish doesn’t operate properly because of that weather - my friend tried to chisel snow off of his dish and busted it.  Apparently, with AT&T no dish is needed now?   Just wanted to say, I feel for ya!

Don't you suppose Ramona got some big perk from HB for hosting the party? Kind of like a high-end Tupperware party?  And I like how she said "it doesn't ALWAYS have to be about charity" when pretty clearly it was a benefit for her.

That Bendel party was lame.  The store itself looked pretty enough- loved the atrium and the fixtures and the architecture.  As for the goods offered in the little "party room"...meh.  Most of the stuff in there looked like what I have seen in the HomeGoods or Marshalls.  I'm sure the price tags were tripled or quintupled for everything, but those makeup bags especially looked decidedly low end to me. And what was that pink faux collar thing Lu had on?  Are dickies making a fashion come back?  Who needs the top fifth of a sweater wrapped around their neck, and on top of their jacket/coat?  

Oh Sonja.  Those two women who were unlucky enough to be in her path of psychosis...did she even know them?  Was she just rambling to strangers?  They looked like they were hostages in a bank robbery and scanning the room for escape options.

And Tinsley, good thing Carole coached you on how to play it "cute & cool" with Scott.  NAILED IT!

I love the real estate porn from Bethenny, but I am getting sick of seeing her buy/gut/remodel apartments every season.  Also tired of hearing how <<this>> apartment is her "dream" home for her & Brynn...haven't there been several of those already?I know the one she bought when Jason was in the picture had to go b/c of the divorce and bad memories, but what happened to the one she bought after being "homeless" and lived in the hotel? I also don't know why Lu can't find an apartment already!If she can afford it, there shouldn't be a problem.  If she can't afford it, then please stop the charade of Lu's real estate shopping scenes.

Dorinda, I'm trying to stay on your side, but the public sloppy drunkenness is becoming too frequent.  I also am not loving the over-platinum hair and make up this season.  

Romona looked fabulous with the shorter hair in her TH's!  She needs to keep this look up and never go back to her old long hair.  She looked younger and fresher IMO.

Just like Cameron Diaz;-)

Also, I heard somewhere that NBC/Bravo bought PRIV, hence all the PRIV makeup artists on shows lately.

The ONLY reason we switched to Spectrum.  And we congratulate ourselves every  time it rains.

Sonja, please seek professional help. It's painful watching you.

It really is.  For her sake, I hope this is her last season.  She's really pathetic, there is no humor in it and it just needs to stop.  (Although I suspect she needs the paycheck, so as long as Bravo wants her, she's  in. And I doubt Bravo has her best interest at heart).

There is no way I will believe that Sonja didn't spend that gift certificate less than a week after she got it.

I laughed out loud at that:

Sonja: "Maybe I'll give the gift certificate back."

Bethenny :  "I would spend it."

(And Sonja really should hire Bethenny as a translator )

Gosh, I guess I'm over on the other side of pool....Yes, Tins reaction to seeing Scott was a little over the top but I'd rather see that than having to listen to So and her great love story with Morgan and the yachts, etc.   It didn't bother me that much.  Tin's mom was the one who brought up Christmas and the stocking...and I did laugh when her mom brought up the dog....which belonged to Scott's ex. 

I did call it at bit "extra" in my original post, but I definitely don't think it was "psycho". I'm a bit of a dramatic personality myself, so if I think about it - I could actually see myself doing something similar. She was just really surprised to see him.

I also loved that she walks over and says that she just wants to leave with her jewelry on and that she is wearing the real stuff and not the fake stuff while making a gesture towards the display.  How obnoxious. This party was at Henri Bendel which is an extremely nice store.  It isn’t like a Sears or JCPenney’s. 

Right? Just more of Sonja's delusions and pretensions. I'm surprised she could even make it to the party. Didn't she have yacht party plans with Diddy....or John-John Kennedy?

I want to know what Sonja told Ramona in confidence about her marriage.  I can kind of see Ramona's point about not defending Sonja to Dorinda because it may have involved Ramona spilling the beans on her deep dark secrets, and Ramona seemed to take the responsibility of keeping them a secret very seriously.  I am shocked that Ramona hasn't blabbed what she knows all over town though, especially when she's had a few drinks!  Kadooz to Ramona for being able to keep a secret.   

Well, Ramona did say that she didn't know Sonja when she/Morgan were married and that she only knew what Sonja told her! Make me think/suspect that Ramona does think Sonja cheated on Morgan. LOL

Yes, I was curious about that as well. The way Sonja said it, it sounded like whatever Ramona knew would erase any doubts people had about Sonja's fidelity. So was it that Morgan was cheating as well? They had an open marriage? What? I mean, I can't really think of ANYTHING that would make cavorting in the South of France while someone is in the hospital look good.

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.

Why was Sonja doing the jewelry check, anyway? Was she checking to make sure that, every piece she was wearing when she arrived, she was still wearing? Where would the jewelry have gone? Why is she always so paranoid that someone has stolen from her or plans to steal from her? She guards her luggage when they go on vacation. Was she traumatized by a burglary once upon a time?

Ramona looks very good in two of her THs. Whatever she had done, two or three years ago, the overstretched facelift or eye-lift, seems to have settled or loosened up. Her skin used to look so taut that it had a sheen to it. And the fillers are not so noticeable. The short hair/wig/topper is great, but I wish she would just commit to one short look - - sleek and straight or soft waves. Instead it looks like someone folded her hair. Or the wig was sitting in a bag for years, and no one bothered to brush it out. 

I am stunned that Ramona is handling her divorce so well. Made more obvious by the way Sonja continues to dwell on hers.

Ramona did the lowest thing one can do-it is like taking the fifth by proxy.  First she claims not to have been around Sonja when she was married so she cannot vouch for Sonja's version of the marriage and then she claims Sonja confided in her.  Ramona not so unintentionally  made it sound as if Dorinda's claims were fact based instead of founded on rumors.  Typical Ramona and she is as annoying as ever-who hosts a party and then is one of the first to leave?

I seriously think that Tinsley does not have a clue as to how old she is.  Hair style, apparel choices, behaviors - she has a severe case of arrested development.  She acts like a 18-22 year old - even to calling her mother over the "surprise visit".  As if that surprise was real.  NOT!!!  

This exactly. I get the sense she still sees herself as a cute young thing and hanging out with these older ladies likely just reinforces that (though Bethenny is only 5 years older than her). So she acts like a 22 year old with her first serious boyfriend. Carole is no relationship guru but I did laugh at the scene where Carole was talking about how boyfriend/girlfriend are Tinsley’s favorite labels. She just comes across as incredibly juvenile and not really having a job adds to that. Lots of these ladies don’t work now but they did at Tinsley’s age or they were raising kids. Bethenny works like an animal now. What does Tinsley do all day when they are not filming?

I am now a resident of NJ after a life as a born and bred New Yorker. Its nice. Of Course now we are considering a move for work. 

Back to these broads. Tins is leo and we be passionate but shes ridiculous. I also have a theory why some of these ladies dislike her. Her life mirrors what their kid's lives could look like. Rich, vapid, eternally childish. Kinda like sonia's entitled ass minus the rich part. 

Ramona has the worst taste in everything. Her delusion in thinking she has the "best taste" is admirable tho.  That bitch commits.

Does Carole know how a break up works? When you are broken up, even if you are friends with benefits, the other person is free to date, hook up whatever. Adam is free to date whoever he wants and it's not a betrayal. Plus, last season she absolutely refused to call it a break up, just a "step back", um girl has serious issues. Carole plays it cool but she's a stage five clinger with this guy and I'm a little worried for his next girlfriend.

I'm dying with anticipation as to what Bethenny says about him that causes the falling out.

Carole claiming Luann should have contacted her after she and Adam's break up-what break up?  Carole claims they had a cooling off period after he moved out-before the Reunion last season and has been bringing her coffee ever since and since the marathon they are seeing more and more of each other.  So was Luann or anyone else suppose to call and say -oh sorry about your decision to re-classify your relationship from boyfriend/girlfriend to not dating others and still seeing each other?

There is a huge difference between a divorce and a reclassification of relationship with an expiration date.  Does the CaroleAdam relationship have a "best by May 20** discard after Dec 20**?  Carole offering the relationship advice when she seems to be a tad clueless making sure like a proper stalker to keep a joint custody pet in the picture.  Guarantees contact and control.

Speaking of on again off again relationships Dennis accompanied Bethenny to WWHL last night. Wasn't Bethenny totally single and available in late December early January?  http://people.com/tv/bethenny-frankel-single-utterly-available-might-create-own-dating-app/  Another relationship not to be taken too seriously-like high school.  I am half expecting to hear one of them say they are going steady with their beau or are pinned or pre-engaged.

Given her penchant for young adult actions and behaviors, something tells me this would be Tinsley.

On WWHL, a caller asked Beth which HW she thought has had sex with the most men. Beth couldn’t decide between Lu and So. Andy wanted the backstage crew to throw up graphics for a viewer poll, which NY housewife has had sex with the most men. They misunderstood, and it became a poll regarding who has had sex with more men, Lu or So. 

Dennis was in the audience wearing a Snoopy (Peanuts) sweatshirt or sweater. Not sure if it was a Gucci.

When in season 8 Carole got a dog named Baby and was calling Adam "Papa" I totally got that vibe.  Paging Dr. Freud!!!

 

Ramona would be the one out of the ladies to wear a promise ring, pledge pin or go steady.

How do you see them gaslighting Sonja? I don't see the women lying to her to make her think she's crazy. That's Sonja's role. She's delusional about what Tinsley owes her for staying over.  She said Ramona was in love with the help,  and Ramona is such a freaking snob,  I believe Ramona when she says no way. Sonja acts like a divorce 12 years ago just happened,  she has to get a storyline, and she takes every opportunity to dig at every other woman on the cast,  except Bethany,  she can. She's known to sell information about the other women, some true and some not, to magazines. As a guest she goes into people's rooms, goes through their personal items,  without permission and wears other people's clothes,  without permission. (That is such weird behavior,  I don't know anyone,  outside of family, who would do that.) Then she cries victim when the women try to explain why they are upset and is either too drugged,  too stupid,  or too much of a narcissist to comprehend why they are upset. Sonja is gaslighting and then playing the victim. 

I understand Dorinda's intensity,  having dealt with sort of personality before,  it's frustrating. The problem is Dorinda goes OFF when she's drunk,  and she's drunk a lot. Nobody wants to see that.

I’m still not following Sonja’s beef with Tinsley. She saw Tinsley tweet that she donated $10K to Beth’s PR relief fund. She also refused the check that Tinsley gave her at Ramona’s dinner party, purporting to not want her money, she wanted her love. 

Lu didn’t complain while living with Sonja, because Sonja didn’t treat Lu as if Lu was her inferior.

 I got the feeling that Sonja thought Tinsley should have given her the 10K, not Bethenny's charity. Sonja needs a storyline and is using Tinsley for it again this season because she has nothing else.

Agree with KFB about the lunch and switching chairs.

Beth should have stood up and told Ramona to take her (B's) chair and that she (B) would be taking her plate and moving to Ramonas former seat to finish her meal and catch up with the ladies at the other end of the table. 

This would have made SonJa feel included and left Ramona holding the bullshit bag.

Doris is becoming unraveled, and it looks like it continues in coming episodes.

I Love Ramona!

Actually Ramona would have then had to address the text Sonja sent calling her a POS.

Someone would have ended up with Eggs A La Francais in the eye.

As far as Bethenny, Carole, and Tinsley - they didn't know about the text.

Ramona, Dorinda, Sonja - for sure knew

Luann - I think she knew too as Sonja was staying with her and Sonja can't keep her mouth shut and she is way into "bragging".

Andy asked which woman on the cast had slept with the most men.  Bethenny was being uncharacteristically modest as I would have thought the competition was between she and Sonja.  Bethenny has had about four years out of 30 in  committed relationships.  Luann on the other hand has had about 25 years out of 35 years in a committed relationships.

The other tacky moment was Bethenny saying her favorite part of the show was watching Kelly implode when she had her meltdown on St. John's.  That was more about Bethenny being an incredibly malignant person-who delights in another's life altering mental illness moment?  Kelly has said she never recovered from Bethenny's crazy label.  For all the politically correct women on this show they do not hesitate to malign another's mental illness and use it as a weapon against them instead of trying to help.  Carole can comment about the use of the word "driver" which is not all that uncommon-it is not as if he is assigned to Luann full time and she has a personal relationship with him.  Carole picking nits.

Hello, she used her own mother mental illness for her own gains.

I have said it before, I was told many times by people who knew her growing up that she was always the same.

Not to endorse Sonja's behavior but I do think she feels as if she put Tinsley up and Tinsley bonded with Carole.  There were photos of Carole and Tinsley attending some big society ball together, while Tinsley was living with Sonja.  When it came time to make a little money Tinsley and Scott went with Carole instead of Sonja and now Dorinda for the Coupon Cabin commercials. All in all I think Sonja needs to move on.   

Staying at Sonja's was one of those great production ideas (and economical for production as well) that lost its charm after Luann's two week stay at Sonja's.  This year according to Luann, production required she get her own place in Manhattan for filming.  Luann got a penthouse.

There is a huge difference between a divorce and a reclassification of relationship with an expiration date.  Does the CaroleAdam relationship have a "best by May 20** discard after Dec 20**?  Carole offering the relationship advice when she seems to be a tad clueless making sure like a proper stalker to keep a joint custody pet in the picture.  Guarantees contact and control.

Speaking of on again off again relationships Dennis accompanied Bethenny to WWHL last night. Wasn't Bethenny totally single and available in late December early January?  http://people.com/tv/bethenny-frankel-single-utterly-available-might-create-own-dating-app/  Another relationship not to be taken too seriously-like high school.  I am half expecting to hear one of them say they are going steady with their beau or are pinned or pre-engaged. 

I think Carole is still trying to spin the image of being this crazy girl who doesn't cook, keeps sweaters in her oven and is the life of the party.  Um, no. She doesn't want to define her relationship with Adam because that's what free-spirited and zany people do. She doesn't want to live with him, she doesn't want to say he's her boyfriend or they are in a committed relationship but if he dates someone else, that would be a "betrayal."  Not getting that at all. 

When we were first introduced to Adam, weren't we told that he eventually wants to get married and have kids?  That should be the major obstacle in his relationship with Carole.  She's said she doesn't want to marry again and has no desire for kids, right?  That should send him packing.  If that doesn't, her style choices, as well as her penchant to eat with her mouth open like a cow chewing curd, certainly should.

I thought for certain Carole was going to tell Lu that Lu should have sent her a text over the marathon.  Lu does have a point - - if you're truly a friend and you hear that she's going through a divorce, the proper thing to do would be reaching out.  Redefining a relationship does not count and it's not the same, Carole.  I guess Carole is going to expect texts (or should I say "text-es") when Adam commits a "betrayal" by dating someone other than the nondefined Carole.  Or maybe a casserole.

I have a feeling Tinsley's mom puts a lot of pressure on her to marry well, and soon.  She came off just as desperate, making holiday plans with him already.

i forgot the whole backstory about Tin's arrest before her first season, but wasn't it something like stalking her ex? I can kinda see that now when she was talking tonight about how desperately she wants to get back with Scott.

I agree that Ramona looks great in those TH shots with the long bob slightly curled, that's the prettiest I've seen her look in years.

for once I don't mind Bethany's bragging about her charitable work.  She's actually getting shit done, not half-heartedly tossing paper towels at people who don't even have any water to wipe up.

Like I've said before, Bethenny is the one who deserves a party for all the work she's done in Puerto Rico.  Carole keeps talking about her marathon.  Enough already.  She did remind me of Carrie with that green outfit on.  How old is she?  I had to watch again this morning.  Yup .. Carrie with the big white flower by her waist .. And the jockey look.  Time to look your age lady.

Carole's blog post - - ripped straight from Carrie Bradshaw and her "I couldn't help but wonder . . ."

Also, Carole . . . you're a writer and journalist.  It's "If anyone is thick as thieves this season, it's me and Scott," NOT "Scott and I."  GRRRRRR!

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

I forgot to mention earlier on this topic: it was hard to see Tins' face during the ridiculousness of the rotting nosegay explanation to Scott. The whole thing was so extra, and she had her face at a slight angle (those flowers reeked), BUT the LOOK on her face was absolutely dead to rights psycho. She was mouthbreathing, hyperventilating and her eyes were scrunched together in the most unbecomng manner. It's worth a rewind.

Even as somebody who writes copy professionally, I still tend to make plenty of grammatical errors (that's what editors are for!). So I'm generally pretty forgiving of other writer's mistakes.  But I'll concede that "Scott and I" is a pretty bad one - especially since that's her opening sentence! 

However, the rest of her blog is pretty on target with what most of us have been saying here about T:

For the record, Keep it Cute…means:

1. Don’t fall to the floor when the boyfriend you haven’t seen in 2 months arrives at your door, Officer and a Gentleman style, to sweep you off to Chicago. 
2. Don’t start to sob. Maintain cool composure.
3. Don’t put him on the spot by asking him if he’s now your boyfriend.
4. Don’t then smash dead flowers into the garbage. Definitely don’t tell him you saved the flowers because I brought them to cheer you up after your break-up.
5. Don’t call your crazy mom before wheels are up on the plane, and you’re safely en route to Chicago.
