It’s a new day in Amsterdam on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” and as the women convene in the lobby, it’s a perfect day to shove the glass shards under the rug and move on. Everyone is ready to put on a happy face, except Yolanda, who wakes up feeling physically and emotionally sick. Her illness, and hosting a bunch of dramatic women has caused her body and mind to feel bad, so after a finger pointing pep talk with Kyle, she decides to stay in bed. Yo believes that although it’s burdensome, putting up with an unstable sister is Kyle’s calling.   Kyle informs Yo that she wants to tell Kim to take this job and shove it, and that her mother should have given her a brother instead. Kyle explains that her sister’s rants make her sick, and Yo minimizes the twisted mess by labeling it as “fighting,” and wishes that a squirt of lemon perfection could fix a decades long, convoluted wreck of a relationship.

Brandi and Kim are going shopping, and Queen Lisa and Lisa R join them, because spending cash, and pretending that nothing disturbing is going on is the best way to deal with shell shock. Eileen opines that some culture would be more fun than hanging with these loons in denial, so she and Kyle hit the Rembrandt museum, as we proceed to jump back and forth between the two groups. Kyle and Eileen enjoy the art and make silly comments about the paintings, pose on the Amsterdam letters, and go for chocolate and coffee. The larger group shops in a gravel floored store, and gawks at trashy lingerie, always the perfect setting for some Bravo-appropriate, tacky banter. Eileen and Kyle discuss the night before, and how bizarre it is that Lisa R is visiting the Amsterdam asylum and not including them. We learn that Yo pushed Kim to apologize to Lisa, which makes Eileen wonder where she and Kyle stand in the apology queue. Kyle asks for reassurance that she is a swell sibling, and Eileen redirects her to seeking resolution, rather than unproductive validation.

Eileen and Lisa R go for a glass of wine, review the horror of Shardgate, and we hear Eileen ask Lisa how she is able to function in the aftermath of such weirdness. Lisa explains that she is terrified of Kim, and she has made up her mind to only chat about sex toys with that hot mess when Bravo forces her to. Eileen is miffed that nothing is being dealt with honestly, and that her defense of Lisa’s right to not eat bread was not reciprocated. Lisa reminds us that the junkie fear is real, you can’t reason with a crazy addict, and she is hitting the self-protect mode button on this one. I can’t say that I blame her! Lisa believes that Eileen should talk to Kim on her own, but she’s staying safely in survival mode.

Yolanda pulls herself together later that evening, and is excited to show the women the canals. They chat about their day, and Lisa admits that she relied on shopping to get her over her traumatized state. Queen Lisa speaks TRUTH when she admits that faking friendly civility works like a charm, but Kyle calls BS on being a lame, red lipstick wearing, step-ford wife. Brandi admits that she’s been an a**hole to Eileen, but she doesn’t appreciate being called out as a pizza slopping, driveway boozer. Eileen admits that she did state that Brandi is a mean drunk, and owns every claim that she made about the sick dynamic between she and Kim. Eileen spills her guts, and frankly nails the situation. Kim thinks that Eileen is unfair to call her out on her user habits, and no one except the five-time crapped on veterans, AKA the rest of the cast, should approach her about it.

Brandi scolds Eileen for blurting life changing accusations, because she doesn’t want any copy catter stealing her camera time. Brandi remarks that everyone has vices, and snarks that Queen Lisa sleeps around, and that Eileen is a home-wrecker, knocking it out of the park with her blurting expertise. Eileen responds negatively, and Kim lightly chirps that everyone should lighten up, and laugh off Brandi’s attempt to lighten the mood with her witty accuser skills. Yo leaves the group to eat dinner, and Queen Lisa joins her, leaving the others bleating in the corner. Eileen and Lisa R follow, and Kyle and Brandi snipe at each other while Kim basks in the bliss of being the center of such rapt, passionate attention.  Kim is hurt, by the way, in case any of you have forgotten her permanent, self-absorbed state for the last five minutes.

Brandi suggests that the women take turns complimenting each other, and everyone but Brandi thinks quickly, and manages some positive words. There’s a sweet moment between Queen Lisa and Kyle, and Lisa R lovingly expresses that Kim is her favorite irrational junkie. Kyle and Kim hug it out, and agree to return to their comfy-cozy sisterly dysfunction. Brandi throws surface compliments at all of the women, cleverly stating that nothing on their insides is worth a semi-kind word.  She touchingly describes her friend Kim, as a f**ked up ray of sunshine, and bolts when it’s her turn, so she doesn’t have to watch the women shoot looks, and grapple for sincerity. Our little f**ked up sun ray goes and fetches Brandi from the bathroom, who emerges looking as though she forgot to put her pants back on. A few of the women force feed Brandi some flattery, and aside from a couple of nice moments, the entire scene is contrived and stupid.

The boat docks, and obviously there has been plenty of drinking time, because Brandi, the stumbling lush has shown up. She tries to corner Queen Lisa for a puffy lipped smooch, and playfully slaps Lisa’s face when she tries to escape with her bedazzled hat in tact.  Lisa is not amused, and regrets the brain power it took to  grasp for a few nice words for such a pushy trashbox.

Jump forward to the next morning, as we watch Queen Lisa and Kyle schlep up a flight of stairs to eat giant pancakes, and Yo and Brandi in another eatery, discussing the smack heard around Amsterdam. Yo, Lisa, and Kyle all agree for the millionth time that Brandi has no boundaries, Kyle takes us back to kindergarten, reminding us all that a slap is NEVER, EVER okay, and Brandi works hard to stifle a smirk, clearly pleased with herself for upstaging Lisa Rinna before the trip was over. Amsterdam becomes a memory next week, as we wave good-bye to Holland, and head home! See you then!

  • Sophia

    Go to Jail. Do not pass go. Go straight to jail.

    • RonnieIsBack

      iI would have just thrown her bony azz off the boat and hoped she scraped those bony knees..

      • Brattus Rattus

        Wow…Ronnie! You’re so much nicer than me! I’m more for giving that drowning bitch a glass of water.

        • RonnieIsBack

          LOL true but she looks so grimy…she needs the cleansing..

      • Sophia

        So she could have matching scabs with her crotch?
        Oh! how mean…

  • She Stinks!

    Was Brandi snorting coke in the boat bathroom after the game? She comes out of the bathroom wiping her nose! Is this why Kim ran after her?

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      I’m wondering that too!!

    • Bad Barbie

      I wouldn’t doubt it. Recreational drugs are illegal there though and she just missed the purge. IF she did have that type of drugs on her, someone locally hooked her up. Yo’s bro? LOL Just a thought…

    • Jennymckitty

      I don’t think even Brandi is stupid enough to bring illegal drugs into a foreign country. Not that I believe Brandi doesn’t recreationally use drugs..but getting ahold of them in a foreign country would be more difficult and getting caught using them would have some serious repercussions.

      • cait

        This is Amsterdam ! Everything’s possible, esp drugs !

        • Jennymckitty

          Her lawyer should have been more explicit then. Don’t do legal or illegal drugs while filming.

        • RonnieIsBack

          and you can get them in Amsterdam….we saw how they pushed the Cake…

        • Bad Barbie

          Weed is. The rest is not legal and unless a local hooked her up or she was at a deep house rave party…

    • BeachSpin

      Probably…she probably found a dealer on the street.

  • Jennymckitty

    Eileen was perfection as she calmly & rationally told Brandi that she said she was angry when she drank and that she couldn’t possibly be the first person to tell her that. Brandi doesn’t know how to deal with people who respond like that. She can only yell and throw insults. Thank you, Bravo, for giving us Eileen.
    Just when I think I couldn’t dislike Brandi anymore, she opens her mouth again. She is so nasty. To come up with the compliment game knowing that she was going to only say nice things about the women’s looks was pretty low. It just shows how childish she is.

    • Bad Barbie

      Yes! I agree with everything you said right here. She really needs to go!!!!!

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    I know a lot of people are saying it was a playful tap rather than slap but like the wine toss in Eileen’s face it’s only playful if both people are in on it. I’m disappointed in LisaR, I get that she would want to just move on for the sake of the trip but she didn’t have to sweep it under the rug like she accused others of doing.

    • Bad Barbie

      That slap was not a joke! These hags swear that everything is a “Joke”. Kim saying that Brandi saying those things about the group was a “joke” is the REAL JOKE! Would she have been laughing if she said -Kim is a cokehead, pill popping junkie that lies to us about being sober but is high as a kite and drunk as a skunk.NOT!

      • RonnieIsBack

        I don’;t believe it was either…Brandi has wanted to slap Lisa V since she dumped her…

        • Yolie

          When you get physical, all bets are off. I hope Lisa V. slaps Brandi with a lawsuit. I hope her children are taken away from her until she starts seeing a professional full time for her anger issues and physical violence. Lisa is not the first person Brandi has put her hands on. FIRE that Bitch already.

          • Bad Barbie

            PREACH! Tweeter roasted her last night.

    • Jennymckitty

      I kinda get Lisa R’s reaction. To me, it doesn’t mean everything is OK, just that she stopped caring about Kim. When Kim showed what a nasty piece of work she really was, Lisa stopped worrying about her. She realized how futile it is to try and help her and just how below the belt she will go if you question her. The only people that can actually hurt you are people you care for. I don’t think Kim exists anymore in Lisa’s world. Lisa V had it right. The only kind of relationship you can have with Kim is superficial. Anymore and you will get burned.

  • Bad Barbie

    My husband was watching with me and he was even baffled that Brandi had the nerves to slap Lisa. He was like “NO! WTF Why she slap Lisa?! Lisa is KING!”. LOL

    Wow oh wow…

    The night before Brandi was screaming at Kyle saying “Don’t touch me”. 2 seconds before she said that pointing and doing this and this and this is like hitting someone (say what?!) and then out of everyone she is the one that actually slapped, pushed and shoved someone thus far… UGH!

    I love the way she is able to tell people about themselves and can’t stomach hearing compliments or criticism about herself. Damaged goods. The chick needs serious therapy. I agree with what Kyle said, she only sees the outside because she doesn’t bother to look further than that. All her compliments were shallow and her saying that she is only able to comment on the outside because their insides are so ugly, she is the perfect example of it.

    LisaV- I wasn’t feeling her much last season… but I am loving her this one. SLAY!

    Kyle- I feel sorry for her and I totally understand when she said “I don’t want this job”. Felt that way many times.

    Yo- see Yo may be all things but she lets people have it, even if they are her fave. For once she was trying to eat LOL

    LisaR- I seriously love this clown.

    Eileen- another clown, she is hilarious and I love the fact that she doesn’t back down to anyone. Go Eileen! She is assertive and there are no fux to give there. Hope they come back.

    • MindStretch

      Bab Barbie – Girl!!! Your post was so funny!! My bf said “What the…???”…it’s so funny watching these shows with men. Their reactions and facial expressions are hilarious. My bf said w a terribly confused look “Now BH is fighting??” I couldn’t stop laughing his reactions.

      • Bad Barbie

        What’s even funnier it that they are all up in the business. He knows everyone’s name. *Crying. LMAOOOOOOOOO I can’t!

        • GinaXOXO

          What have we done to these poor men by making them watch?????

          They are scarred for life! I almost feel bad but my husband made me watch those damn ducks so I think it is fair play.

          • Bad Barbie

            EVEN!

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Brandi is very calculated with all her comments, the “don’t touch me” is dramatic effect, just like the home-wrecker comment. Eileen won the argument with Kim and Brandi, with grace, with an accurate memory, and without even raising her voice. It was perfect. There was a moment of stunned silence when Kim and Brandi realized that none of their usual antics were working. I loved it.

      • Bad Barbie

        Me too!

        Just like I said in another reply. She said that LisaR has an eating disorder (Kim said this too) and that Eileen broke up a home, which it is true. So her adding the rumor about LisaV was for stigmatic reasons.

    • MorningYawn

      Barbie – superb post. Checked “YEESSSS” on all boxes!

  • itsjustme

    SO Brandi can now assault 2 people and claim she was joking? This chick NEEDS TO GO! This chick is so damaged she hasn’t a clue what it is to act like an adult. She truly acts like a jealous, catty 16 year old. She disgusts me!

  • GinaXOXO

    Beach Spin, that was so well written!! I haven’t watched yet but you made me want to.

    Shardgate is hilarious and hopefully sticks to describe Rinna and Kim’s fight.

    I love this place. Thank you for the welcome from the regulars. It has been fun meeting new cyber pals and bumping into my old favorites that found allaboutthetea before me.

    And, a shout out to my old friends–Annielee, Cassie-anne, Hot Green Chile Mama, Meinyc, Bravo Junkie, Vegaslady, MJ, Sarah (WW), KellyShae, stoplyin, & MamaB. I miss posting with some of my favorites and if anyone sees any of them please tell them hi and send them here. It is a much better place to hang out in the morning with a cup of coffee and at night with a glass of wine (and cookies). LOL!!

    • Bad Barbie

      Glad you found this spot too! I wonder if you use the @ if it will notify them?

      I used to see you at the jungle too. SMH

    • RonnieIsBack

      Glad you found us!!!

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks so much Gina!! Glad you found us! 🙂

    • twifan2

      Mug of wine & sprinkle cookies, GinaXOXO! 😉
      Glad you made it here. NOW snark away! 🙂

      • GinaXOXO

        I LOVE that you got the reference!

  • Jersey

    I’m so over Brandi and Kim. Kim’s reaction on Kyle telling her the things Brandi has been saying about her was so dramatic. She seriously can’t believe that Brandi would never screw her over after watching her do it to others in the group. I read somewhere that Andy pretty much confirmed Brandi is done after this season. I sure hope that’s true. Also, Has anyone else heard of Lisa V sleeping around? I’m curious about that one. She makes it seem like she hates sex. lol

    • GinaXOXO

      I haven’t seen it yet: from the blog above I thought Brandi was joking when she said LisaVP sleeps around–I highly doubt Lisa sleeps around. Also, how did Kim react when Kyle told her that Brandi was talking about her??

      I mostly chimed in to let you know that Andy didn’t say Brandi was leaving. He only said that they will talk to Brandi about it–his comment was pretty diplomatic. I will search for the video.

      • Jersey

        Brandi said she was joking when she went around the table but she was saying things that,supposedly, people have been saying about them. In the clip for next’s weeks episode Kim yells at Kyle that shes lying. Just the way she said it seemed so dramatic to me. She’s known Brandi from the start and has seen first hand what she does to people. I think what Kyle told her was that behind her back she’s telling the other ladies that Kim needs help.

        • RonnieIsBack

          Brandi may have been joking about Lisa but she wasn’t joking when she threw that dagger at Eileen…

          • Bad Barbie

            Which just goes to show how malicious and calculated Brandi is.

            I don’t remember what she said about Yo, Kyle or Kim but I do remember that she said LisaR has an eating disorder and Eileen is a homewrecker. I don’t think she even made it to Kyle… Which takes it back to LisaV. She implanting a lie with things that may be truth on with the intent to expose or tarnish Lisa’s reputation and hurt her marriage.

          • MorningYawn

            Like the valley and the bankruptcy. She puts lies out there so other people spend their time defending. Heinous!

          • RonnieIsBack

            Yup and she and Kim laugh about it all the time…which is why Kim made that remark to Lisa R “why don’t you eat some bread!” and Lisa R was like you’re disgusting! It is a known fact she is fearful of carbs and all things fattening.
            Kim and Brandi are the worst kind of bishes to ever know of any dirt on anyone. When mad (not even provoked) they will use it against you = Kyle smoking weed, homewrecking (20 years ago) Eileen, etc.
            But the bishes have more dirt and skeletons in their closets than most and when hit with their own chit, they cry = Kenya calling out Brandi about Eddie dumping her bony azz for a younger woman, etc. Brandi was mute…and not because of Trump.
            I guarantee you at the reunion we will see screaming frmo her then tears..like last year. #SimpleBish

      • Bad Barbie

        In another scene Lisa tells Yo- “I have been faithful to my husband for 30yrs” and you can hear it in her voice that she was truly upset.

        These are damaging things that Brandi spews. Kyle was right when she said Brandi says things designed to hurt people. She tries to plant the see..

        I wonder if this is going to come up at the reunion? I bet LisaV will ask Brandi why she said that she slept with half of LA (or BH whatever) any money that B is going to say “I heard from People” or she will imply that YO or Kyle said that. Just like she said that Yo told her about Mohammed and Joanna K. Her usual reply to the shyte that she makes up as she goes along.

        Call Lisa all you want, but adulterous doesn’t fly.

      • MorningYawn

        OT Gina – I was on the other site today and someone mentioned commenters who like Kim. “Gina” was referenced and I wanted you to know that there was post after post saying nice things about – I believe – you. I thought you would want to know.

        • GinaXOXO

          Awe, thank you. I miss so many of the posters. They really tolerated my love of the unpopular housewives and would snark with me and tease me. It was a lot of fun. There were some new posters that jumped in after poker night with a lot of emotion that didn’t tolerate me very well. I got to give my RT friends credit . . . Even though they didn’t agree with me they defended me. Thanks for sharing, morning yawn.

    • Bad Barbie

      He didn’t confirm it but I wouldn’t doubt that it is paving the road for it.

      Kim yelling at Kyle- UGH! That was ridiculous! But it is like when you are telling your friend that her BF cheated and she is swimming in that long assss river in Africa. All Kim needs to do is watch the past few episodes and she can see how B ditches it all.

    • Yolie

      Count me in. Kim cannot claim 3 years sober if she is taking pain meds that are not even prescribed to her. But then again, its her recovery. Her behavior shows me that she needs more work on the 12 steps with her sponsor. Her behavior tells it all.

      • Bad Barbie

        There are seasons and episodes that Kim can’t even keep her eyes open. She is not fooling us.

    • MorningYawn

      I agree that Kim truly thought if Brandi as a friend. I think she must be devastated which is sad and scary at same time!

  • Jennymckitty

    Lisa R and Kyle have been friends for years. Filming this season can’t be the first time she’s heard about Kim’s struggle with sobriety and the wretched way she treats Kyle. It makes me wonder if she has heard rumors before this about Kim not being entirely sober and if she is doing this for Kyle.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Lisa knows all the tea bout Kim..she tried to out her in season 2 but Kyle turned against her and they tried to take her down…epic failure, but lesson learned which is why Lisa is now silent on the matter.
      Kyle only has conditional friends…you can be her friend ONLY if you: never bust her for lying, thinks she is the best since sliced bread, make sure she is your very best friend first ALWAYS and continue to put up with Kim’s bullchit.

      • Bad Barbie

        You are confusing Lisa’s. LOL Jenny was talking about Lisa Rinna who is a long time friend of Kyle.

        • RonnieIsBack

          I don;t think when I saw the post at first, I missed the “R”.
          Agreed.

    • Bad Barbie

      that’s what I am saying! It is not like she is a pure stranger to the Richards. Kim is making it seem like she is but she is full of vodka.

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      I think you hit that nail right on the head!

    • MorningYawn

      I’ve thought that all season. Gives her a solid storyline, helps her friend (hopefully) get her sis into rehab.

      • Jennymckitty

        i think Kyle is sick of the family dynamics as well. Kathy gets to be the friend to Kim and Kyle is expected to diplomatically clean up Kim’s messes. If she angers Kim while doing it, the entire family punishes her. If Lisa is the heavy, Kyle won’t have to endure the repercussions from the family.

  • RonnieIsBack

    Great recap Beach!
    Lisa R is making me mad with her people pleasing flip flopping chit. I am calling MAJOR BULLCHIT on her being afraid of Kim..please she was about to choke that hooka a new neck…she is afraid that the druggie will spill the tea that Kyle told her about Lisa’s hubby…
    Dirty Harry…
    Eileen handled these bishes well..she is like forget the bullchit..I’m not faking a cotdayum thing for Bravo…
    Seriously cute scene with her son and hubby…super cute..

    • Dani-K

      Amen Ronnie. Lisa R is a flip-flopper. But what I really wanted to happen is for Brandi to take her medicine and listen the return feedback, like “Brandi, I really admire your height” and “Brandi, I really admire your fillers.”

      • twifan2

        More like ‘Brandi, I’m jellyous that you have your own flotation devices to enable your mouth to stay afloat’.

    • Yolie

      Agreed. Lisa R did flip flop and it was surprising to watch. Brandi made a big deal when Kyle touch her on the arm and now she slaps someone.

    • Bad Barbie

      Physical harm is not the only way to hurt people though. LisaR now knows that Kim will say anything to come out on top. I would be afraid too. It is dangerous grounds with the shyte she makes up.

      • RonnieIsBack

        True but if they are really lying you slap the hooka wiht a lawsuit and keep it moving. I say hurt the drunk bish in her pockets. Kim has no real money and everyone knows it. She and Brandi are two of a kind. Desperate. Unfortunately I believe Kyle told Kim some chit about waht Lisa R shared with her in private and Kim ran with it. 1/2 true 1/2 added but Lisa R didn’t want it aired in public. I am sure this changed the dynamic of their friendship (Lisa R and Kyle). I’m also sure Harry had some words for LIsa R when she returned home…#KeepThatPussShutBish

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Ronnie! I think Lisa is self protecting because it’s upsetting, and she knows her attempts to help are futile, it’s just easier to say she’s afraid. Kim was scary on that car ride…YIKES!! Eileen is simply FAB.

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Great recap Beach. Kim says she doesn’t want her kids to think she has slipped/messed up….Well……. I hope they never watch the last few episodes…cause she was MESSED UP. Also when the honeymoon is over between Brandi and Kim, and Brandi spills all of Kim’s secrets, woohooo…watch what happens then!

    • Bad Barbie

      She is already spilling it… Kim is just too lost to notice. LMAO!

      • RealitytvJunkie

        This is true. Brandi did note in a recent interview Kim was mad at her about something she said on a recent episode.

        • Bad Barbie

          The one talking behind Kim’s back is Brandi. Everyone else has no problem in saying the same to Kim. Brandi on the other hand was talking to her friend Jen about Kim. Was talking to LisaR about Kim but for some reason she fails to tell Kim that. Wonderful!

          Not like other people were talking about Kim and Brandi shut it down. She is a POS.

          • RealitytvJunkie

            Kim is plum crazy and Brandi is an obnoxious whore. They are made for each other.

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Reality…can’t wait for Kim to screech LIAR at Kyle next week. By the way, in case you can’t tell, I love the work ‘junkie’!!

  • twifan2

    OT for a bit here. 🙂
    With the stuff Brandi is spewing out there about Lisa’s ‘infidelity’, does anyone think those ‘comments’ will be brought out in JoannaK’s lawsuit?
    Could maybe Brandi tell the court that Bravo ‘made her’ say those things for dramatic effect? That Bravo producers ‘script’ the show?
    That sort of ‘stuff’ isn’t going to endear Brandi to LisaV when they have to go to court.

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Do you mean Eileen’s infidelity (home-wrecker comment)?

      • twifan2

        Yes, sorry trying to eat my bagel & type at same time. :/
        Not working too well.

        • RealitytvJunkie

          Twi, don’t you know typing while eating can be hazardous lol. You’re so funny. Brandi’s comment was actually true. Eileen did meet and start an affair with Vince while he was married so although it was a nasty uncalled for comment, it wasn’t slander because it’s the truth.

          • Bad Barbie

            But it wasn’t about Eileen. It was about Lisa and she did say that Lisa slept around..

        • Bad Barbie

          You are right though. Brandi said LisaV slept with half of LA

          • twifan2

            I thought I was in my ‘pre-coffee’ delirium. Thanks Bad Barbie, thought there was a scene about that last nite. 🙂

      • twifan2

        Do you think Brandi has been told by her lawyer to watch what she says or it could be used against her?
        It’s too late with now that the season 5 is over.

        • RealitytvJunkie

          Apparently not. With every episode she continues to make salacious and vile remarks about each ladies personal life.

          • twifan2

            But she has been a tad ‘tame’ on her twit acct lately.

          • Bad Barbie

            If she had 10 fans left she lost 9 last night. Twitter was on tilt flaming her. People really hate this chick.

          • twifan2

            Surprised she did’t tell them all to STFU? 😀

          • Bad Barbie

            *crickets* from her.

          • twifan2

            She must be asleep? :/

          • RealitytvJunkie

            I’ve noticed that also.

      • twifan2

        But didn’t Brandi also say that LisaV was fooling around? She meant it as a ‘joke’. :/

        • RealitytvJunkie

          You are right, she did. I don’t know how true that is but Brandi is probably telling the truth. Who knows.

          • twifan2

            I honestly don’t think LisaV slept around during her marriage.
            Could be wrong, but I don’t think so.

          • RealitytvJunkie

            That’s a vile and slanderous remark to make if it’s a lie.

          • twifan2

            That’s vile and slanderous Brandi. 😀

          • Guardian

            I’m guessing B’s “source” was that guy that Ken and Lisa had staying at their house the first couple of seasons – remember him? He was a friend of B’s. Not that B needs a source for anything she lies about but she does like to have someone to point the finger at to lend “credibility” to her BS. I don’t believe L has ever cheated on Ken, I really don’t. This is just typical B behavior. I so wish she would be sent packing along with Kim.

          • twifan2

            Oh yes, I remember him now. He’s quite the ‘reliable’ source also. 😀
            I don’t believe it either about LisaV, Guardian.

          • Guardian

            I didn’t even bother to watch last night Twi, caught it this morning. My gosh B & K are just so ridiculous. I would have been happier and more interested to see close ups of all the food and that chocolate shop.

          • twifan2

            I was drooling at the pancakes! 🙂
            *ok still am drooling*

          • Guardian

            I’m just glad I wasn’t watching last night as that meal on the boat looked like it would have really hit the spot over the Mac & Cheese I whipped up. And oh man, those pancakes. . . !!!!! Hell, even my cats were drooling at those.

          • twifan2

            😀
            Chats was looking at me this morning-that’s when I watched the episode-& I swear he was ‘Go whip some up for me’.

          • Brattus Rattus

            I went online and bought a Belgian waffle maker and all kinds of mixes….
            I don’t even like waffles or pancakes. lol

          • twifan2

            My waffle maker has dust on it, somewhere in the dark corner of the back shelf… :/
            I do the Bisquick pancakes. I just add the fruit, chocolate chips, bacon(!). 🙂

          • Guardian

            Mine too . . . last time I used it was fall 2006!

          • twifan2

            I even have one of those Crepe pan thingys. Have I ever used it? Nope. Will I ever use it? Nope!
            That’s why there are Micky Ds on almost every corner these days! 🙂

          • Guardian

            I had one too but don’t know where it is now. It was a pain in the butt to use quite frankly and I could never get the crepes to come out well. Hey, I’m totally happy with a sausage biscuit from MD’s.

          • twifan2

            OH & croissant sausage ones from BK-I think that’s who.
            AND Dunkin Donuts right out the oven!
            OK, I’m hungry now! 🙂

          • Guardian

            Oh yessss! Get this, we don’t have a Dunkin! Horror. Sometimes I just need a real grease fix!

          • twifan2

            My condolences, Guardian. :'(
            Shiply Donuts?

          • Guardian

            We have one tiny donut shop that opens in the wee hours and sells out quickly. They don’t have anything as a side with bacon or sausage. When I moved back here I never thought I’d have to give up so much.

          • twifan2

            OMG! That sounds like where I moved back to here at the foot of Appalachians. PLEASE tell me you don’t live in a ‘dry’ county! That was the nail in my coffin! :'(

          • Guardian

            Used to be. Then all you could get in a bar was beer. Then if you wanted a mixed drink you had to belong to a club. Finally, they just gave up on all of the rules. Took forever.

          • twifan2

            Luckily, I can drive down to SC & get a carload of hard liquor at cheaper price than at the local ABC stores here. 🙂
            STILL, I miss my neighborhood liquor store. 🙁

          • Guardian

            Failing to plan is planning to fail. Just could never understand exactly what “they” thought was being accomplished?

          • twifan2

            ‘They’ thought they could keep more $ in their pockets. :/

          • Guardian

            True – the wealthy in this area have controlled everything since long before I was born.

          • MorningYawn

            I can’t make pancakes to save my life (I know!!! Wtf?) but I can make a mean waffle. Love my waffle iron!

      • Bad Barbie

        But wait… Twifan is still right. Brandi said that Lisa V has slept with half of BH (Or LA can’t remember the exact location) right before she called Eileen a homewrecker though.

        In the next scene, Lisa walks over to Yolanda and says.. “I have been faithful to my husband for over 30 years!”

  • colleen

    I didn’t get the Lisa V slap. I mean it made no sense, came out of nowhere, and fell flat. Brandi needs to follow the script the producers perpare

  • Yolie

    Watching two junkies slur their words and rattle offensive nonsense is not my entertaining. Brandi crossed the line with physical violence.This show is now allowing violence between cast members. Perhaps the producers are also crossing the line by allowing the cast members to attack one another. Time to rethink story lines.

    • Bad Barbie

      And time for the cast to stop taking it too! LisaV should walk off this show already. I can see how any of this is good for her brand but who am I kidding?!

      • Yolie

        I see how the show brings added exposure for her restaurants but I wonder if it’s worth it for her. Trashy Kim and Brandi aren’t even housewives. They don’t represent the image of rich classy Beverly Hills. Those 2 need to leave the show.

        • Bad Barbie

          FACT! I am just saying because Lisa is putting up with the most and has the most to lose.

      • twifan2

        She could just stick with Vanderpump Rules?

        • Bad Barbie

          NOOOOOOOOOO that’s even more ratchet! I don’t really think she should leave because we will miss her but she sure doesn’t need to take the abuse for the sake of the story line.

          • twifan2

            At least on VR, Lisa is the ‘boss’. & she doesn’t have to put up with Brandi & Kim. 🙂
            Plus, she’s not on much.

  • Chloe

    Brandi calling out Eileen for making comments that could “ruin people’s lives” is the height of hypocrisy. This coming from Brandi, the woman who said Kim was doing meth. But seriously, Eileen won this episode.

    • Bad Barbie

      What she said about Maloof was very damaging. True or not. It was not Brandi’s place to talk about the subject. What she said about Joyce and her husband was very damaging. What she says about Kyle and Mauricio could hurt his business. Now she threw it out there that LisaV is a ho and the list goes on and on and on…

  • Bad Barbie

    Brandi is on twitter fighting with people cause someone mentioned that she is a bad example for her sons. Her usual reply that she is a good mother and doing what she needs to support her kids. But she had no problem saying stuff about other parents.

    Does she really think we believe she is the sole provider for her kids? Skeletor is.

    • twifan2

      ROTFLMAO! 😀
      She must of fortified herself!

    • chacha1

      I do not do twitter so thanks for the info 🙂

      • Bad Barbie

        Also that she submitted her blog, full of typos and grammatical errors.

        • itsjustme

          I looked for her blog but apparently it’s been removed. The only 2 I saw were Lisa R’s and Eileens..

          • Brattus Rattus

            It’s back. And terrible. The wine thing… lol Never giving that skank a dime.

          • twifan2

            Is it just me, but I can’t see the preview video of RHBH with Maloof. :/

    • twifan2

      That’s NOT going to help her sell her new wine- Unfiltered Blonde?!
      She’s supposedly coming out with it some time…

      • Bad Barbie

        She got a what????????? FML

        • twifan2

          Oh yeah & she’s going to pair her wine(s) with foods??? o.0

          • Guardian

            Whatta plan! Not another freaking cookbook I hope.

          • twifan2

            She could use note cards! 😀

    • BeachSpin

      LOLZ…that is RICH…how is being a well known whorey drunk a bad example? Come on now….maybe their friends play on her stripper pole.

  • CNN

    Kim is definitely delusional if she thinks her kids think she’s sober. However on seeing her like this for years – this is their normal behavioral pattern expected from their mother. Kim if you were my mother I’d be so embarrassed. Kyle must be also. Kim and Brandi together is just mayhem. Hate seeing them together. Bravo this is such a bad example for Housewives of Beverly Hills.

    • BeachSpin

      Please..her kids know..they probably know better than anyone else. I would be SO embarrassed…UGH!

  • chacha1

    Yolanda is as mean as Kim and Brandi, I am not buying her ‘act’ this year …. she showed her true self last season in Puerto Rico and then at the BH Anniversary party when she barked at Ken for nothing and said Kin David would never be around the likes of him … I can’t stand her fake illness and her annoying voice and talk about claw hands, did you notice when she talks with those huge claws … and she has now admitted on this show that she lied about being sick so she wouldn’t have to be around them after the fight the night before

    • BeachSpin

      I am pretty sick of Yo too..I think she killed 2 birds of criticism with one episode last night…she stayed in bed, and ate some food. Congrats to her!

    • OhSnarkyMe

      Yolanda is secretly evil. Brandi the ho and Kim the addict are blatant, in your face evil while Yogabbagabba hides it. She’s causing all kinds of ugly trouble and loving every minute of it.

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      I tooooootally agree.

  • chacha1

    Brandi was trying to french kiss Lisa and even told her to slap her so what does Brandi do when Lisa resists … she slaps Lisa, I would have thrown her overboard and that would have been doing her sons a favor …. can you imagine having a mother who goes to the school for parent teachers night and she has on a wrinkly jean mini dress, pony boots on stick legs and greasy and dirty hair extensions

    • twifan2

      Hi Hi chacha1! 🙂
      LisaV didn’t look happy or in a joking mood after Brandi slapped her.

    • Bad Barbie

      She doesn’t think so but she is really giving Eddie ammunition. She is also giving leverage for the day her son’s group up and be the judge of her poor behavior. Life has strange ways and these kids could even grow to understand why their dad did what he did. They may not agree with the way he went about it but who can blame a man for leaving this type of filth in the dust?! If he had to deal with the person we see on TV, I am surprise he even had kids with her.

    • Brattus Rattus

      First Brandi offered to “go down” on Lisa now the kiss? Brandi wants to have Lisa cheat on Ken so badly….. Mo dirt – mo shit talk.

  • Brattus Rattus

    BWAHAHAHAH Just read Brandi’s blog. What a mess. Now she has a wine coming out. “Unfiltered Chardonnay”. I know I’ll be missing that one. Lisa VP bottled her sangria nor Brandi has her crap. She really needs to get an idea of her own.

    • Guardian

      So many of these housewives have wines and spirits out since BF made a fortune. I just wonder who buys it? (Along with all of the other crap so many of them peddle.) With regard to Brandi, I hope her investors lose their shirts along with her. It’s an expensive gamble and I don’t think I’d bank on her swill. As for her blog, finally decided to read it – as per usual, she’s right, they’re wrong. In other words, they’re right and she’s wrong.

      • Brattus Rattus

        For me it’s only like a 45 minute drive to try Lisa VP Sangria…so I might put that on my bucket list, but a bottle or two if it’s good, I’m down. That Skinny Girl stuff, not my thing but lots of others dig it. Go Bethany! I’m not putting one cent in Brandi’s pocket (besides the show and if Lisa VP leaves, so do I). Brandi needs more than an equal slap in the face to be even. I kinda hope Eddie and his lawyers are watching closely.

        • Guardian

          Now, I will bring out this caveat that I would try the Sangria. I haven’t tried the SG and don’t intend to, not my thing either. Agreed, I wouldn’t give B a dime. And, if nothing else, would love to see EC drag her back to court over and over again and send her legal bill’s on a rocket ride.

          • twifan2

            Like Tre’s Felonillin, I’ve only tried a sip of SG mix-not my taste at all. :/

          • Guardian

            Several of my friends said they didn’t care for it – the SG. (We didn’t get the felon stuff.) I’m not big into any of the low-cal stuff – food or beverage.

          • Brattus Rattus

            high five on that

          • Brattus Rattus

            Total bitch statement: she knows drinking it. not making it I had way more crass thoughts but ima keep them to myself.

            😀

        • twifan2

          I bought both the pink & the red sangria wines of LisaV’s. They both good, but I liked the red one better myself. 🙂
          I did buy Kandi’s combo set of her play. That’s it!

          • Brattus Rattus

            do you know if the bottled version is available online or just locally?
            if y’all could see the spelling errors… I need not be on the net. Please excuse all of my errors. Again… no WAY Kmn took Monte’s cancer pills and was not off the wagon or good with it.

          • Guardian

            I think she is tripping on something . . . more than a dry drunk.

          • twifan2

            No worries, Brattus Rattus! I can decipher ‘hieroglyphics’. 😉
            Sorry, she doesn’t sell it online. I get mine thru a local liquor distributor.

          • Brattus Rattus

            it’s MY cancer pills that are screwing up my stuff. I’m so sorry.

          • twifan2

            That’s ok, Brattus Rattus! I’ve had relatives, friends on cancer pills.
            No need to be sorry about it! You have to do what you have to do! 🙂
            At least you can be on here with us & snark away without being ‘judged’ on grammar, syntax! 🙂
            CHEERS!

            Exactly!!!!!!

          • twifan2

            Some people just get too hung up on ‘proper’ grammar, syntax-imo.
            A good snark, post will be appreciated, giggled at no matter how it’s presented! 🙂

          • Brattus Rattus

            What’s really screwed up is that when I type it and read it, it makes sense. LOL FML

        • misstc

          I can tell Brandi is trying very hard to behave as she didn’t partake of Spacecake-so yes, I think she is being closely watched. BG also blocked me as I made a comment long ago that I hope Eddie is reading some of these tweets & comments.

    • misstc

      Read somewhere that Brandi will not return. If it’s true (hooray!!) how will she remain relevant? Without a platform like RHOBH, she will fade into the past. She will lose her talk show & yes, no one will buy her swill.

      • twifan2

        Wasn’t there something on one of her twits or a story that she claimed that the other housewives were banding together to get her fired? I think she was doing some ‘damage control’ from the episode of last nite. She knew she was going to be roasted! 🙂

        • Guardian

          Who knows? She’s the only truth cannon I know that fires off like a boomerang. Her blog today was all dc – dumb and desperate.

          • twifan2

            I just can’t read her crap, Guardian! NOT enough Wally World’s box wine to get me thru that load of delusions! 🙂

      • Sophia

        As a marketing designer I have to say that a wine named “Unfiltered” will have a huge fail unless the general population that knows nothing of Brandi understands the concept. Otherwise it sounds nasty.
        With that, I wish her much failure. She deserves it.

        • twifan2

          To me it sounds like people didn’t take their socks off when they stomped the grapes. :/
          Nope, not buying her stuff!

          • Sophia

            LMAO! I kind of went near to your thoughts when I saw the name also. I don’t think we are far off on that. But I love your analogy and I most especially love well thought humor. 😉

          • Guardian

            What will be next – unfiltered meals? recipes?

          • twifan2

            Unfiltered feminine hygiene products?

            Well, she does have the tampon string market. 😉

          • Ewwww!!

          • twifan2

            What?
            She’s got pull. 😀

          • Sophia

            I don’t think that even a reputable F.H. brand would associate with her due to her behavior patterns. LMAO @ you. You’re funny.

          • twifan2

            She could try marketing it as something like
            ‘When you have no pull, at least your tampon does’.
            I mean, she is losing favor from viewers.

          • Sophia

            OMG, LMAO You are naughty! I love it. So creative!

          • Guardian

            Botox, fillers – speaking of which, in a trailer she looks like she is getting some kind of face treatment. She is on her back and her “cheekbones” look inches high. Yikes.

          • twifan2

            Oh, I think that’s the link I just posted to you up top.
            Her face looks weird in that position. :/

          • Guardian

            They almost look as if the fillers calcified like some breast implants do. It was just so odd looking. These fillers can turn rock hard but are easier to remove/and or disintegrate in time as opposed to raw injected silicone.

          • twifan2

            And no wonder her speech is getting hard to understand. Her facial muscles are getting weighed down by the fillers in her face. :/

        • Guardian

          Given her pod casts and self proclamations, I think she is trying to brand herself as unfiltered. I’m not a marketing person mind you. Rather amazing that she thinks she is so well known that Joe and Jane Doe will know what it means when they see it on the shelf. Do hope it fails along with the investors as they’ll not likely want to play with her again – nor any others.

          • Sophia

            You are correct, she is trying to brand herself. Unfiltered is a negative in her situation. Beyond being a novelty, negativity does not sell. I may be wrong but my gut feeling and experience tells me that this will be a loss for her. And you’re right, thinking that the Doe family will get it is presumptuous to the point of being ignorant. She has the wrong concept in the wrong market. It will be interesting to see how this turns out for her.

          • Guardian

            “Negativity does not sell” – bang. People may watch it but they won’t buy it is what I think. And, also agree though again I know nothing in this arena, that it’s the wrong market for what I see as a gimmick and not a brand.

          • Sophia

            You nailed it. It’s a gimmick. The only gimmick I know of is novelty items like plastic poop and whoopee cushions that have endured the test of time.
            Interesting metaphor, huh?

          • Guardian

            Well, they are classics. . .

          • Sophia

            Yes and you and I know Brandi is poop but the Doe’s don’t. They won’t get it and will not buy it.

          • Guardian

            Yes, just another try by another second rate “star” to cash and run. Hopefully it will crash and burn.

          • twifan2

            It must kill her to see how many states LisaV has her sangria marketed out to! 🙂

          • Guardian

            Yep – Pandora and her hubby have been working overtime.

          • twifan2

            Excellent! 🙂

          • Sophia

            I’m having a hard time typing on here. The page just quits.. Anyway… I think you are right, it will probably crash and burn. Brandi will have to cough up hundreds of thousands of dollars if not millions to get a marketing team to figure out a way to market negativity into a positive experience for the consumer. Branding these days is all about customer loyalty and their pride in the brands that they choose. Who wants to associate w/ that ugliness unless a team gives her image a complete makeover and that would be over my head as she has already puked on anything that could be used in a positive way. It would have to be a start over and forget the name “unfiltered”.

          • Guardian

            Too much work, too much money. Would so love to see her on Shark Tank.

          • Sophia

            They would eat her alive.

            Yes, exactly. That’s another challenge for marketing. Getting her name out there and what she stands for. Again, having puked on everything that could have been spinned into a positive, that isn’t going to happen. The only ones that would buy it is her loyal fans and I don’t see that there are enough of them on this planet to give her any kind of a salary and mostly probably a huge loss.

            Thank you. No. I just have a crappy computer I use for internet. LOL. I will try your idea. Thanks!

            God luck. 🙂
            I usually have to do that when I’m on my Nook.

            Brandi cries ‘funny’. Maybe because she was lying down-idk.
            WHY, why is Yolo being so sickly sweet to her? o.0

          I think it is “Unfiltered blonde”.

          • Sophia

            Hi Gina! Well, that helps some. Not a lot. Not sure, what do you think? Do you think it will sell? As I remember you like Brandi. It would be interesting to get your take on it.

          • GinaXOXO

            I think it will depend on the marketing. And, if it is marketed well it has to taste good. If the marketing gets people to try it the taste will get them to buy it again and tell their friends.

            Brandi still has fans–and she gained a few from Celebrity Apprentice. It will be interesting to see.

            I think the HWs are overdoing the wine and fashion lines. Oh yeah, and
            “singing”.

            How to you think LisaVP’s sangria do??

          • Sophia

            Interesting take. I had not thought about the CA connection either. I forgot about her appearance. She seemed pretty tame in that show and mild mannered. So I can see how she did gain another audience. And you are correct about quality of product. That would be another positive. And I so agree with you on all of the branding projects. Too much already. I don’t think the HW’s franchise will be a long term project but that is just my opinion. It’s up to the networks and other television execs to start coming up w/ original programming. So I think some of the women and husbands are catching the bandwagon now hoping for a long term cash cow. I don’t understand what you are saying about “singing”?!?! As far as Lisa’s Sangria? Dunno. I adore her but realize she is a celebrity and I don’t associate w/ her on a personal level. I never knew who she was until RHOBH. Apparently she has a following that has known her for a long time. She has a lot of positives as she does a lot of humanitarian work from what I see. There is a market for her in that. Plus who doesn’t want to live like her? I don’t know her numbers on LVP sangria but I would guess because it is new in a lot of new markets it will do well and then level off on sales. If it is an extraordinary product I would imagine repeat loyalty from customers. I don’t see it as a top seller though on a long term basis with competition, etc. I hope I’m wrong about that. My personal preference and emotional level preference is to go to the import section and choose wine and brandy from Portugal or Spain. I like classics. All of the Sangria I have had is a dark color, Lisa’s seems light which I tend to kind of snub (sorry) because I like authenticity. Could be my ignorance, not sure. I would imagine a lot of people are that way so I am willing to bet that LVP sangria is being marketed more to the younger crowd that wants a fast and easy cocktail. xxxooo

          • GinaXOXO

            Lol . . . Singing . . .

          • Sophia

            LMAO on the singing. I got what you’re saying now. Scheana, ugh. What is that girl thinking? I’m actually embarrassed for her. Kudos for her for doing what she does but … ugh it just weighs me down for her. Not that I’m a fan…
            Yes, I think that the Housewives franchise is going stale. It still has great ratings but I think that Bravo sets it up as staged and people are catching on. Like the video you posted yesterday. But you’re right, I think also that people are getting bored. Come on, really do I think Brandi is as crazy as she is made out to be? No. I still don’t like her but if she is that bat*$&% crazy, I don’t think she could be functioning at the level she does with her daily life and kids. Bravo TV has been setting this one up since Brandi arrived on scene. I have to admit that even though I don’t like her, I did up until this season. I loved the way she treated Joyce by forgetting her name and bullying her. I just detested Joyce.
            The bottom line for me is that I’m not sure I will continue watching RHOBH or any of the other “reality” shows Bravo has to offer after the season is over. Honestly, it makes me sick how angry I get and how other’s get. It’s manipulative of Bravo to even claim that this is a reality show. What a farce. Last night I got caught up in a twitter battle that I didn’t understand was going out to Brandi and fans. It was horrible. All of the negativity and how it effected me. I think that BravoTV has set it up to be that way: negative and provoking enough for arguing. I also think they are misogynistic. I tell you this: If Lisa V and the others know that we are being manipulated this way and continues playing charades, I will no longer be a fan, either. I am happiest when everyone just gets along and even though there are differences, there is no hate or anger. Just respect.
            I think it’s a great idea to always be trying new wines. Sometimes I just get stuck on one and get sick of it. Oregon is putting out some really stellar stuff these days, it’s worth a try. Tho their Pinot’s are very, very dry and heavy. If you like that, then great. Every once and a while I get ahold of an very dry Gewurztraminer and love it but you have to go through a lot of syrupy duds to find one. I love your wine glass icon. 🙂 Cheers! xxxooo

          • GinaXOXO

            I saw on your Twitter that you weren’t happy about something. I also saw that you were tagged with someone I follow that is a Brandi fan. I wondered how the two of you got together with such different views. Now I understand. It certainly can be very negative. I’d like to think they treated you respectfully but given your reaction that doesn’t seem possible. I feel bad that you went through that.

            I just reread your comment–it went out to Brandi too? Omg!! Hopefully they are leaving you alone now. Brandi is use to it. Have you ever looked at the horrible things people say to her?

            It is the Bravo formula. They get viewers vested in a housewife and then cause a rift and we all take a side. They’re brilliant because they do somehow evoke very strong emotions in us. There are very few that like both Kim and Kyle or both LisaVP and Brandi—almost always it is one or the other.

            Is it scripted? It could be and, most definitely, is fake. Did you see the story yesterday about a hip hop reality show cast being involved in a lawsuit and testifying that it is scripted? The person being questioned said something about the show not portraying who they really are.

            I don’t believe Bravo shows who any of them really are. Watching Brandi on the Apprentice showed an entirely different person than what bravo shows. I hope Brandi quits and does something else. This isn’t good for her. Brandi knows bravo will not change how they portray her. And, IMO, LisaVP is at the helm. They VPR production company is the same company that produces RHOBH. Lisa has pull with them.

            I didn’t like Joyce either!! She was so annoying! I roll my eyes just thinking of her talking about baby having a big peepee. Seriously, I cant.

            I hope you weathered the Twitter storm and it is all behind you. Stay positive and don’t let it bring your mood down.

          • Sophia

            Oh the drama on twitter. So childish! I have only recently become aware of how negativity effects my mood and how I feel about life in a screenshot. I need to work on letting such stuff roll off of my back but in the meantime, I will shut it down right away. Does it effect you? If so how? I do not like fighting. Thank you so much for your empathy and kind words about it. That is very sweet of you. I’m ok. It wasn’t as bad as maybe my tweet made it out to be. It was fair warning to a few Brandi haters that I wasn’t putting up with being dragged into their life’s work of dissing Brandi on twitter on a daily basis. Who lives like that? Can you imagine how unhappy they are as people? Anyway, they are deleted and blocked now. I have suspected RHOBH is fake along with the other shows for a few years now. Thank you for confirming my suspicions. And yes, I did see the article that you are talking about. I didn’t really read it past the headline. Interesting what you wrote about that article. Sad. Yes, when I saw how Brandi was on the Apprentice I noticed only a few similarities on her personality. She was likable on the show. If Bravo is making her out to be a nut case I think she should quit. Why have so many haters? Regardless of anything I think Brandi is a super sensitive person and should not subject herself to such nonsense and negativity. It is not helping her move forward in any way – most especially with her new brand. It only will hinder her. BUT on the same token her Podcast is pretty much negative filled with expletives and the same stuff of RHOBH so that isn’t helping her either. The gangster act is icky, IMO. Oh Joyce… She is the one that I loved to hate. SOOO annoying! She acted as if she were so much better than Brandi and yet she sunk to a lower level than Brandi. And the bedazzled outfits, WTF? LOL I used to post on Bravo all the time and started saying that she looked like an ice skating queen. Then Brandi said it on the reunion! haha! Loved it! I forgot about her baby having a big peepee, lol. Good one, Gina. You can’t – haha.
            I’m so glad you and I are friends on here and twitter. I love our conversations and your posts. It’s genuinely fun chatting with you. xxx

          • GinaXOXO

            It was people that don’t like Brandi that were giving you a hard time?? I figured it was the opposite. Of course the negativity affects us. One morning I noticed that was tense after reading my discus. I don’t like making people mad–or having them tell me that I am wrong (especially when they are vile about it).

            So, I decided it was time to tone it down and be very fussy about who I commented with and try really hard to ignore the responses for the “unhappy” people. (wink) The night I got banned it was a noob that got me fired up. (S)he called me a troll and then claimed that I was intentionally baiting people. That same noob jumped on one of my pals comments telling her that she was wrong about everything in the whole world. Of course I wanted to know why I was “baiting” and (s)he was commenting . . . AND . . . so much for not chatting with people I didn’t know and ignoring the negative ones. It was a good theory but poorly applied.

            I have listened to Brandi’s podcasts (only the recent ones) and she doesn’t seem too bad, to me. Maybe she has toned it down? I remember reading the comments from people who listened who made it out to be much worse that what I heard. That said, Brandi does *love* shocking people with how sexually at ease she is. She has to know her audience isn’t comfortable with threesomes, etc.

            I know you don’t like Brandi but you had to love when she asked Joyce about Sochi calling.

            It is fun chatting with you too.

          • Sophia

            I was having problems with Reality Tea because people were posting things that included that they hoped that Yolanda would die, get sicker, quit and a fake. How can anyone be so cold hearted? Regardless if you like someone or not, most people don’t even think of such things. All I was posting was a polite ask if they could find it in their hearts to be compassionate. It escalated. Then I just posted this: “People without compassion are without a soul”. I was kicked off for that. I didn’t name anyone in particular, I didn’t directly point the post, though the post was provocative. A website or people that promote such hate is off of my list of any kind of priority. Unbelievable! They have no place in this world in my opinion.

            Everyone is entitled to an opinion. Yours were just as valid as any other post. I don’t like this trend in America (especially with politics) that if you feel a certain way, you are pigeon holed as your comment being who you are as a person and that whatever name that they call you or identify you as is who you are as a person. How ignorant! The world is not that black and white. And you’re right, these people that do such things must live in sheer hell for thinking like that because that is the way their mind is working. Can you imagine how they view the world and other people? *shivers*

            I haven’t listened to a recent podcast. Frankly, I was offended by what was shown on RHOBH when she was interviewing someone that seemed really nice and Brandi joked about her small breasts and said something about her being a whore. That’s offensive but I just realized that she is no different than Howard Stern. Perhaps she is trying to be a female Howard Stern and that is her “schtick”. If that is the case then okay, fair is fair and men don’t rule the world on shock radio. What offends me about Brandi is not about her openness with sexuality but how she comes across as a womanizer (almost misogynistic in seeing women as objects) in many ways. No different than Howard Stern or a lot of men in this world. IMO. I absolutely detest this kind of behavior whether it comes from men or women. And that is mostly why I no longer like Brandi. Along with the physical abuse. It’s just not acceptable behavior both socially and legally.

            Again, I did like Brandi up until this season. So yes, I did like her comment, referring to my comments on the ice skating outfits. I still do and would love to watch last season all over again just to see how she was with Joyce. I don’t know what it was about Joyce but a lot of people were put off by her. She was horrible for the show. I love when people have pride for their home country but the Puerto Rico thing was just over the top with all of the talk about it. If she loved it so much then what the hell is she doing here? I never heard her say anything about the US but only positive things about PR. It made me wonder about her loyalties and where they were. And then the Miss Universe crap. OMG.. seriously? She seemed to think that was the pinnacle of her life. That’s sad. Again with the objectification. Ugh… I have never had a desire to hit anyone but there were times when I watched her and just wished that I could punch that flat face of hers. (talk about double standards from me) So what did you not like about Joyce? Was she really fired? I would post a lot on Bravo about Joyce. There were a lot of complaints from posters and myself that Bravo was cherry picking only the positive messages to Joyce. That’s when I knew there was a problem and others saw her as I did.

          • chacha1

            Brandi reaps what she sows and can dish it out but can’t take it … I am glad she is getting bashed, give her some of her own medicine, hope she is gone next season, enough with this trash bag

          • Sophia

            I get what you are saying. But I also am starting to catch on to the fakiness of these “reality” shows. I can agree with you on some level but on another level I wonder how much is a set up?!?! I always try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt. One thing for sure, she acts like her RHOBH character on her Podcast which isn’t helping. And the kiss/slap business on Tuesday’s show was beyond being just weird. What place did she go to where she was playing make believe with the kiss and then a slap? Her behavior was bizarre to say the least.

          • Loving your comments Gina!! I’m an OLD RT’er also. Use to post there 2 years ago. Quite a few of us old RT’ers are here now.

          • GinaXOXO

            Thanks! I am beginning to feel like less of a misfit!! Even with my ability to see things differently than the majority I feel accepted and welcome.

            No one has called me Brandi, a Brandi-tard, or told me I must be white trash like my idol Brandi.

          • Sophia

            “Brandi-tard” LOL. Where do people come up with this stuff?
            I’m sorry you went through that, Gina. We all seem to have our scars from Reality Tea. Nasty, Nasty website.

          • GinaXOXO

            LOL. It’s ok. When it first started I giggled because my favorite posters were razzing me. I would call them VanderNuts or Lisa Lickers (I can’t take credit for thinking of that second one). But, not lately. It is not as light heart-ed. You and I chatted about picking a side–apparently viewers are more emotional right now.

            But, for real, I am not easily offended. For the past few weeks posters really could not tolerate anyone defending Brandi–and when they would call me Brandi, etc. it wasn’t lighthearted. And, I didn’t giggle because the context changed. It was mostly new people and moderators that were jerks, IMO. The moderators are nasty–and a couple of the bloggers.

          • Sophia

            Vandernuts… LOL. I can’t stop laughing on that one. I was only on RT for a few weeks at the most so I was on the tail end of what you experienced. I completely agree with you about the mods and the bloggers being the biggest jerks on that website! They encourage hostility & don’t like it if you are not that way. That is why I LOVE this website. It’s not a big set up like RT for hostilities both with the show talent and the posters. One poster on there that I really liked was Medusa. I thought she was so funny and lighthearted. I wish she would come to this site to post. She always had an interesting perspective and funny posts.

          • GinaXOXO

            Medusa is still there. She is funny. She is so lighthearted and fair that I could not say for sure who her favorite HWs are. She just seems to find the humor about all of them.

            There is another one who said she is a stand up comedian and she is one of the most unhappy people. I read her posts and just wonder how on earth she gets paid to make people laugh.

          • Sophia

            I have a friend that used to be an agent for comedians. She told me that comedians on the most part are some of the most messed up people she had ever come across. That’s where they get their humor, mostly from hurt in their lives, screwed up childhoods, etc… It’s that sarcastic view of life thing. I never came across this person you speak of.
            Medussa? Well she’s a classic. Her snarkiness was mild mannered and included everyone. She has a talent for not offending anyone though she told me that sometimes she does. She’s all about equal digs.

        She’s LeezaG’s BFF now? o.0

        • Sophia

          And I don’t get that. If Brandi is indeed the persona that comes on RHOBH then she will turn on Leeza. Leeza strikes me as a very smart person. Leeza sees something a lot of ppl don’t see. Maybe Brandi isn’t that bad person she claims?? It’s hard to believe because what sane person would do half the stuff Brandi thinks up (who thinks like that?)? It would be a big risk for Leeza if Brandi is indeed that persona. As Leeza is not only taking a risk in her career but her reputation as well.

    • OhSnarkyMe

      She slaps Lisa’s face and then blames Lisa for it and then calls the other women hypocrites. She’s beyond delusional–she’s just a dumb lying b*tch. Get her off the show.

      • twifan2

        NO wonder people are going off on her!
        She ‘blamed’ LisaV?! In her farewell sign off(I HOPE) ‘STFU”!

      • Sophia

        Yes! Why does she criticize the other women so much and continue the show. I realize it’s a job but the premise is to be somewhat friends on the show. I think that she just wants notoriety and hopes that somehow others’ money will transform to her by osmosis. She does not even realize or care how she is coming off as a total flake and nut job.

      • Seriously at this point I think Brandi knows exactly what she’s doing. She’s getting paid to be the antagonist and plays it up to the hilt.

  • chacha1

    You know what? LisaV, LisaR, Yolanda and Kyle can pat themselves on the back for enabling the two drunks and backstabbers Kim and Brandi …. you constantly let them slide with their disgusting behavior and then wonder why they never change, especially that little rat faced Dim Kim, sneaky little bitch that she is ….. Eileen is the real deal and sees it the way I see it, Brandi can go to a dinner party and insult Babyface and his wife and say disgusting things and what does Yolanda do, she invites her to yoga, Amsterdam and kisses her stank bony ass …… and why do I always hear everyone apologizing to those two skanks? Even LisaV at lunch one time was telling Brandi she was sorry about SHeana …. WHY ? Brandi was just lunching with sheana and pandora two weeks before that episode. Yeah all of you ladies keep forgiving them and they will keep dishing it out, you all deserve with the exception of Eileen every vile thing that Brandi and Kim do to you

    • Sunny

      At this point, I agree with you.

  • Brattus Rattus

    I totally know this is wrong and my mind works differently on my (we need to find a better way to say cancer drugs…cause ugh) but I bet Brandi has a few friends/bodyguards around her right about now for hitting Lisa. Not advocating it…AT ALL. but I bet there are people out there waiting to pop one off on Brandi and say, “but it was just a playful joke!”

    • RonnieIsBack

      Hang in there! Hugs!!!

    KIM is the worse druggie and human being..she can never apologize for nothing, it’s always if – if us not saying I’m sorry.. She is disgusting, thank God my sister was a working loving addict.. She would apologize and beg for forgiveness, for saying anything ugly, and mean.. When her anger across. KIM is still a drunk and everyone knows about you., if KIM is so concerned about her kids, quit making an asshole of yourself on TV…. Ugh
