    Ravenel is so gross. The way he talks about Kathryn’s “physicality” makes me sick. A woman his own age would punch him in the dick, that’s why he goes after impoverished youngsters.

    • Blackheath

      I have to stop reading these responses when I am eating or drinking something. Between you and Chacha1 today, she had me choking on pretzels with her comments and I coughed my drink up from laughing at ‘punch him in the dick’ and I have no idea who Ravenal is. I have tears pouring down my face right now!

      • Nick’s daughter

        He is on Southern Charm, Blackheath & He is one of the reasons I don’t care for that show…
        Commenters will cause ‘spewage’ 😥 *think that’s the word… with their hilarious comments! 😂 Drink/eat at Your own Risk😉!!

        • 💚.

          I don’t like Southern Charm either, not sure why.

          • Nick’s daughter

            Hi EP💚!! Hope you are having a good Thurs. Evening…
            I also do not watch Any of the ‘little people’ shows on Bravo & TLC. I used to watch the “little couple” (Jen & Bill) but I stopped a season ago. I don’t watch Teen Moms or Dance Moms.
            JOKE = 400 channels & nothing Good is on, 😉 lol! 💜

          • 💚.

            I don’t watch any of the little people shows. I use to watch Dance Moms & Teen Mom the first couple of seasons, but they became too much for me.

          • Nick’s daughter

            We have similar tastes in our tv-watching these days!☺ I am Glad RHOA & Pump Rules each have 1 Reunion Show to go, then Done! I am playing w my friend’s dog, she’s Big, but a real sweet girl 🐕. My guy is already asleep, having little dog 🐶 dreams…😪

          • 💚.

            Loved VPR first season!! I didn’t watch RHOA until season 3. And when Kenya came on, she made if very difficult to watch with her obnoxious shenanigans.

          • Nick’s daughter

            I missed 1st season VPR. Also, as u wrote, the start of RHOA. My HWs watching started with RHOC before I even moved to CA…it’s the first Bravo I watched & I am really into the Fray now. BEYOND Disgusted & insulted/outraged by Brooks & Vicki last season. Because my😇 Mom had it & chemo & radiation & surgery & battled to stay with us…am getting emotional…*deep breath* Yes!! Agree w you re-Kenya & shenanigans!! ➕➕

          • 💚.

            You MUST watch the first season of VPR, it is the best one!! The first seasons of all these shows are always the best. Everyone is new and they are less affected and more authentic, not so calculated. Now it all seems over staged and heavy handed with production interference.
            I’m sorry to hear about your mom, sending condolences and well wishes. I hated RHOC the last season with the scam they allowed to be foisted upon the viewers. I’m sure it hit you especially hard. The loss of a mother is devastating!! XOXOXO

          • Nick’s daughter

            Thank you, I still miss her & always will. I am My Mother’s daughter, we have some health issues in common & Some are All my own.
            BRAVO & Andy Cohen better get it through their heads that Real people are impacted by the ‘fake/phonies’ on their Reality shows!! Thanks for the tip, I’ll find Season 1 of VPR & Enjoy it!! XOXOXO to you 💗💙💖

          • 💚.

            Mothers are their daughters tether to the world and when we lose them, we feel rootless and lost. At least that is the way I felt and still do feel. I mourn her loss every single day. I understand completely what you are saying. Time does lessen the pain but never fills the empty place in your heart.

          • Nick’s daughter

            Perfect. Comment.
            My heart goes out to you on the loss of Your Mother. Please accept my condolences, I understand your grief absolutely. You may speak for me, your words & feelings are expressing my emotions, as well. If you want or need to talk, I’ll listen. Thank you for sharing with me. I am lucky to know you here. Rest well, and we will chat again.😊 Soon, I’m sure 💗.

          • 💚.

            Good Morning Nd!! I must apologize, I didn’t mean to turn the conversation around on me, I was offering support to and for you and the loss of your mother and wanted to convey I understood your pain. Please forgive. 🙂

          • Nick’s daughter

            No apology is necessary! You were sharing & relating to me. I was very moved by your posts, your message was very understanding & clear to me…{{Big Hugs}} 💙 💗 to you! We are relating just Fine!! No worries!

          • 💚.

            Thank you Nd and I hope you are enjoying your day!💋💕

          • Nick’s daughter

            Yes, EP – I am enjoying Friday!! How are you doing?? 🌞 Here is some extra sunshine to brighten your day 💜.

          • 💚.

            I’m happy to hear that! I’m okay, waiting for the weekend to finally arrive. Thank you for the sunshine. I think the weathermen agree with what you have sent me, it is so lovely and beautiful today, a bluebird day!🌞

          • Nick’s daughter

            Yay! Because it is raining on my Dad today & I have sunshine to spare!! 🐦 I don’t find a bluebird icon…will a green ‘bird of happiness’ be acceptable?? 😉 it matches your 💚 color ☺…

          • teri keller

            So true

          • teri keller

            Hugs

          • Nick’s daughter

            Hugs back to you😊. Thank you for your kindness, Teri!

          • teri keller

            Your most welcome

      • sideof Sour Cream

        lol! thanks so much Blackheath! 😀

  • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

    Yay for Melbourne season 3!

    So far (I’ve only watched episode 1) it’s fun funny catty & dramatic in the way a HW franchise should be. Shine shine shine. Book club & baking session.

    Everyone is healthy (knock on wood) & my beloved Gina is as tan as ever! 😄 🎉

    • Why is this happening to us?

      Hi Snarky!
      How are you watching Melbourne? You tube?

      • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

        Hi why!

        I found it on that Zippcast site that was mentioned the other day. There are 5 episodes up so far.

        Episode 1 was really fun & funny too!

        Melbourne really is one of my favorites! I like when like all or most of the wives…most of the time. Potomac & Melbourne are up there on my list.

        • Why is this happening to us?

          Oh cool! I have to go check that site out!!
          I’m glad I’ll have something to watch this weekend now! Lol. Looking forward to new episodes of Melbourne. We’ll discuss after I watch them! 😊

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            Yay! I’ll make scones & pavlova so we can have a fun recap session! 😄

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Sounds good to me! I’ll try to have them done by the end of the weekend! Lol. I might even start one right now! I’m going to see if I can watch it somehow on my Apple TV

          • Why is this happening to us?

            I actually have some blueberry scone mix here! Lol
            I bought it at Sur La Table when I was there. I’ll make them this weekend for the occasion! 🍪🍞 (no scone emojis! Lol) 😁

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            I love Sur La Table! The food emoji list needs do be beefed-up. I guess this can be a blueberry 🔵

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Lol…I didn’t even know that blue circle was an emoji! I guess I didn’t get that far!

          • Nick’s daughter

            I vote for more emoji -food & otherwise!! Nice – you made a blueberry!! 😊 reminds me of, “You’re turning violet, Violet! & I’ve got a blueberry for a daughter!!” *the Original Willy Wonka & Chocolate Factory. 💙 that Movie, but Not the remake!! 👎

          • Why is this happening to us?

            I haven’t seen the remake and haven’t watched the original since I was a young kid. There are so many movies I need to rewatch as an adult. My all time fave is the Wizard of Oz.

  • Trippinhhard

    I can’t stand that Thomas, I think that’s his name, he has no respect for women.. I think he preys on the lonely weaker women (young woman)…

    • Nick’s daughter

      If you are referring to T. Rav./Southern Charm, ITA with you!!
      Trippinhard – (You said can’t stand Thomas, he was the first to come to my mind 😉).

      • 💚.

        Hey there Nd!! How are you tonight? It’s EP here.

        • Nick’s daughter

          I am doing Ok, thanks for asking! 😏 How are You, how was your day? I wrote to you downthread tonight…I look forward to April & more Spring weather!! 😊

          • 💚.

            Just okay, that doesn’t sound good. Is everything alright? You live in California, right?

          • Nick’s daughter

            Yes, I live in OC, CA. I appreciate you So much for being concerned. I sometimes get ‘isolated’ here (*no fam. In CA) and was kind of feeling blue 😶. On the upside, I have been waiting for April…I get to ✈ to go hug + visit my Dad!! We are counting down the days. I Miss him, he is 90+ years, 💕 bless him!

          • 💚.

            Awww, I love your tenderness and admiration you feel for your dad, it is very apparent how much you love him!! I’m sure he is counting down the days to see his adoring daughter.

          • Nick’s daughter

            I appreciate it, EP – your support & kind words make my life better! I am cheered up! We are going to have an amazing time, April showers or Not! Besides, he will take me to Bingo night (I could win, for once 😉 that’d be nice!) That’s where lots of his friends, fellow Veterans & senior citizens call me, Nick’s daughter…and I answer to that, happily!! 😊

          • 💚.

            You are so kind Nd!! You are going to have such a fun time!! You must share all of your wonderful stories when you return from your visit.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Hi ND! That sounds wonderful! Where does your dad live? I’m sure he will be just as happy and excited to see you too! I hope you have a lovely time! Make him some asparagus casserole 😊

          • Nick’s daughter

            You are Reading my Mind!! Why 😉 ! yes, I Will make him asparagus casserole, it’s on my ‘List’. + I am baking him “amaretto brownies”! I found a mix here in CA, thought of him. That’s one of his Favorite flavors, amaretto coffee creamer & biscotti, etc. They don’t have that flav. In the Chicago suburbs, but Anything for Dad! He will get Our fave pie, Strawberry-rhubarb, they Do have That & I can’t wait to indulge!!

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Aww…that sounds so nice! You will have a good time eating all those goodies together! Food always brings people joy and reminds us of good memories (like your mom’s casserole). Those brownies sound divine! I’m sure he will love them! Even more so that you are making them for him 😊
            If I don’t see you before you go, I hope you have a wonderful trip! Can’t wait to hear all about it when you get back!

          • Nick’s daughter

            You sweetie💖!! 😶You’ll ‘see me’ my friend Why…Because I’m not leaving until mid-month…So I’ll be here, packing, planning & trying to keep up with You-all! Did you get a chance to wrangle the fresh asparagus into a casserole dish? 😉If/when you do, please let me know how it turns out for you?? Thanks!😊

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Sorry I didn’t respond to you last night- I fell asleep! Lol ☺️
            I actually made a delicious frittata with the leftover asparagus from Easter. The asparagus I had was already cooked and I didn’t have as much left over as I thought, so I just chopped it up and threw it together with some pancetta, eggs & some Parmesan/asiago cheese that I had left from Easter as well.
            Here is a pic…it was delicious! I used Ina Garten’s recipe for a “roasted vegetable frittata”, but I just substituted my own ingredients (pancetta, asparagus & cheese) instead of making the roasted veggies. I used her recipe as a guide so I would have the appropriate measurements for the egg mixture and the proper oven temp & cooking time. I love all her recipes- she never disappoints!
            Next time I buy asparagus, I will make it with your recipe. I will definitely let you know when I do! Thanks again for sharing your mom’s recipe with me! 😊

          • Nick’s daughter

            You are a Super Chef! ☺ The frittata looks delish!! Thank you for your note & for sharing this with me…Glad you got rested! You’ve been very busy!! 😊

      • Trippinhhard

        Yes I don’t like his personal at all..

        • 💚.

          Hello Ms Tripp, how are you tonight?

          • Trippinhhard

            Im good just arrived home a few minutes ago.. Been a long day, but a good one..
            What’s shaking with you EP?

          • 💚.

            Not much going on, enjoying the evening and having a chat with everyone here.

          • Trippinhhard

            That’s good it looks a little slow tonight..

  • 💚.

    Good evening everyone!! EP here, I was listening to the news and heard that Trump believes women should be punished if they have an abortion. Would he feel the same if any of his former wives or current wife has had one? Anyone hear this and what do they think?

    • Pandora403

      I saw the interview with Chris Matthews and Matthews kept pushing Trump and pushing him until Trump screwed up and said something really stupid about maybe women should have some form of punishment for an abortion. Matthews was pressing him if abortion is considered murder by some then what should the punishment be? Trump tried to talk his way out of it but finally blurted the dumbest thing he could have said. He’s since tried to backtrack that comment but it may be too late. Hey, it was only a matter of time before Trump finally did something to really bury himself.

      • 💚.

        Hey Pandora! I saw a little of that interview. The funny thing is, I don’t believe he believes it. It seems like he is pandering to a specific demographic, which is a huge mistake. I doubt the GOP wants to back this fool.

        • Pandora403

          It’s almost a shame that John Kasich didn’t get more traction from the beginning. I always thought he was the best of a bad lot. But what the hell do I know?

          • 💚.

            I agree about Kasich. Seemed like he wasn’t able to catch peoples attention or imagination in the beginning and therefor his inability to really rally support.

          • BigBrothersMother

            Kasich has been a very good governor. The problem he has is that he was an exec with Lehman Bros. when they went under. He has the Wall Street connection so I’m not sure how that would play out.

    • KT

      Hey EP! I just wanted to say Hi. Since there hasn’t been anymore Sister Wives news I haven’t gotten to “talk” to any of you in a long time. Kinda miss my fellow snarkers!! The only other show I really follow is Dance Moms and I don’t think anyone else here follows that.

      Any who …… just wanted to say Hi. Keep thinking about Melzer, though. Hope she’s doing OK. She’s in my thoughts.

      • 💚.

        Hey KT!! Good to see you. I think about Melzer too and also hope everything is ok.

        • Sandy Wood

          Hi there EP, my multi-faceted friend…now that you seem to have dropped the EP, shall we simply refer to you as Heart Dot, Heart Spot, Heart Period…
          Melzer has been on my mind all this past month, I know that she had a set-back and was facing new ordeals…if you are out there Melzer and just reading along, please know that you have an army of friends here sending you all positive energy.

          • 💚.

            Hey Sandy!! LOL No you don’t have to call me heart, I’m still EP and always will be. I like to mix it up. That was very nice what you said about Melzer, she truly is missed!!

          • KT

            Hi Sandy: Sorry to butt in but I was also thinking about Melzer. I’m glad you said something about her. I’m sorry to hear about her setback but glad you said something in your post to her. I hope you don’t mind if I steal your idea and post a hello to her in case she is reading.
            Thanks, Sandy!

          • Sandy Wood

            KT, you mentioned Melzer first tonight, I was just glad to have the opportunity to tag along with your thoughts.

          • KT

            Ok. Thanks Sandy!!

    • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

      He shouldn’t even be elected President of the people of Walmart never mind America.

      • 💚.

        Absolutely agree!! I fear for our country if he does become President.

        • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

          Same here! I would seriously consider becoming Snarky in Montreal if that ever happened.

          He’s such a liar & it’s so ridiculous. So disrespectful when it comes to women. A bully & a coward.

          • 💚.

            Have you been following his beef with Meghan Kelly? I can’t believe he puts so much energy into his vendettas. It makes him look unhinged and a bully!

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            It’s terrible & sickening. Such a sexist pig.

          • 💚.

            I remember when he had it in for Rosie O’Donnell. He is exhibiting the exact same behavior when dealing with women.

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            The idea that he has made it this far is like The Twilight Zone.

            He doesn’t even have the basic knowledge of any issues & gets caught in lie after lie…

          • 💚.

            It is like the Twilight Zone and I think he has made himself a potential assassination target. A lot of anger surrounding him.

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            Absolutely! I feel bad for the Secret Service that has to protect him.

          • 💚.

            They will have their jobs cut out for them!

          • Sandy Wood

            And our Prime Minister has MUCH better hair. You would be welcome to be Snarky in any part of Canada!

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            Thank you Sandy! I love Canada! Such a beautiful place!

          • Sandy Wood

            :-)))

          • 💚.

            I didn’t know you lived in Canada. What area of the country?

          • Sandy Wood

            About an hour NE of Toronto…close enough for events but far enough away for a peaceful existence.

          • 💚.

            Sounds lovely. I think I would like to live in Canada. The weather suits me to a T.

          • Sandy Wood

            You would love the winters here, lots of snow…but summer has very uncomfortable humidity. I’m originally from Vancouver…that would be your kind of place, great skiing and ocean breezes keep the summers lovely.

    • EllaFitzbunbun

      Neither he nor any other man should have a say on the subject. It is punishment enough to have to have an abortion.

      • 💚.

        Hey there EF!! Long time no see. Concur with your opinion about abortion. I’ve had a couple of friends who have had abortions and they both said there wasn’t a way to explain how horrible the ordeal was. My stance is, I don’t believe in abortion, for me. What other people choose to do is their business.

        • Why is this happening to us?

          Agree 100%. No one “wants” to have an abortion. It’s necessary in some situations. The problem I have with it is when it is used as a form of birth control. One or two accidental pregnancies is one thing, but when it’s 4,5, 6 times, etc., that’s too much. Then again, it’s not our call.

          • 💚.

            How anyone could use abortion as birth control is beyond my comprehension. That is something I will never understand.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            I don’t know either. You would think people would learn from their mistakes.

    • Why is this happening to us?

      So are you now “the poster formerly known as EP?” Lol
      Hi my friend! 😽😽
      I think this whole Trump abortion thing is stupid. Why do they keep bringing up abortion for every election when it’s been legalized for 40 plus years ??!! It’s not going back, so why even talk about it? If people are so against abortions, then I think they shouldn’t have one, but it’s not their place to tell someone else what to do with their own body. Obviously I am pro-choice, if it offends anyone, I’m sorry, but that’s my opinion.

      • 💚.

        LOL!! How are you tonight Why? I feel exactly the same way you do. This abortion discussion/debate/fight is beyond old and needs to be dropped asap! Women are in charge of their bodies, no one else needs to apply!!

        • Why is this happening to us?

          I’m good! Hope you are well!
          I just feel like it’s like beating a dead horse. The case was decided over 40 years ago, so why are we still talking about it and why is it an issue for every election? Seems like a moot point to me.
          I think women should be in charge of their own bodies. I don’t advocate abortion, but I think it’s the individual’s choice. You can’t force someone to be a mother to a child they don’t want. That’s just as unethical, IMO.

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            I agree with you 100%

            Trump isn’t a drinker either so maybe Prohibition will be next on his list.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Oh great! Lol. Drink up!! 🍺🍻🍷🍸🍹🍾🍶

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            Good thing I grown my own grapes! 🎉

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Hehe 😹😹
            I think if that ever happened, fruit sales would skyrocket! We’d all be making our own hooch! Lol. My husband’s family makes wine and grappa…we’ll be ok!

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Do you make your own wine?

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            I grown the grapes & my uncle makes the wine.

            I’m not much of a wine drinker but I’ll make some Sangria every now & again.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            That sounds wonderful! I’m not a big drinker myself. I actually prefer white to red wine. My grandfather used to make white wine from grapes he grew in his yard, but the wine was terrible! lol
            I like sangria! I also like anything that doesn’t have a strong alcohol taste. I usually like drinking white wine, champagne or a Bellini or something along those lines.
            All those years of heavy drinking in my 20’s have made me have no desire to drink anymore. lol

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            I get a headache & super drunk very fast from red wine for some strange reason. I’m good with white wine & thankfully my little grape babies are just that! My friend that bartends at a popular Portuguese restaurant in the Ironbound section of Newark taught me how to make some mighty good sangria

            🍇 Refresh 🍇

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Wine always makes me tired. Lol. I have one when I want to relax, but not if I am out somewhere at a party or something where I need to stay awake! lol. Otherwise I’ll be sleeping in the corner of the party!
            Your grapes look nice! I assumed you made red because I think most people do. Do you make the white sangria or the red? When it comes to sangria, I enjoy both. Depends on my mood. I like a good white sangria with peaches and apples…yum! 🍹

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            Everyone else I know grows red as well. But I was like if I am babysitting these grapes that take over my yard & need constant attention …no red.

            I make white sangria with lots of fruit!

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Sounds yummy!
            I would grow white grapes too. I remember eating them from my grandfather’s yard- they didn’t taste so good…lol. I don’t know what type of grape they were. I was so young, I didn’t know anything about wine back then.

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            They are VERY bitter & acidic when it comes to eating. I try to warn the squirrels that think it’s a buffet.

            Lol…I used to get yelled at for eating them! They are bitter- they have a weird flavor.
            My grandfather told us not to eat them all the time, but we wouldn’t listen and then we would go and eat them and make faces! Lol. They were SUPER dry too!

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            My youngest son always did that as well. I could tell when he was in the yard crying Mommy Mommy. But he’d do it again & again. He probably still does it….without the crying.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            My brother and I would do the same! Lol
            Kids never listen! 😁

            I have to get going- my hubby is on his way home, so I won’t be able to watch Melbourne tonight. I’ll have to watch it tomorrow while he’s at work! Lmao. When he comes home, he likes to watch tv together and he won’t watch HW’s. I had him watching RHONJ in the beginning- he liked it until it became all about Teresa and her brother fighting all the time. Then he got sick of it. I think he felt like he could relate to it the most of all the franchises.

            Have a good night! Sweet dreams! 😽

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            The only RHONJ episode Mr. Snarky ever watched was the one where Giudice & Gorga were in the big brawl & there was silence for hours & hours in the house of Snarky.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Hehe…my hubby watched that episode too. He was laughing when the black hair polish got all over everyone! 🖊🖋🔎👴🏻🕵 😂 I don’t think he watched the show for much longer after that. Once the whole story started to revolve around the Gorga/Giudice drama, he quickly lost interest. (I couldn’t blame him…Lol…I lost interest too!) It seemed like they were fighting every episode after that and it got old fast.
            He liked the guys on the show and liked when they would go on trips, to Italy, Napa, etc. I can’t believe he actually watched a HW’s show at all! Lol. It was a miracle!
            He hates all the other HW shows. Lol. I think he secretly likes BH because he likes seeing the fabulous homes and all the glitz & glamour. He would never admit it though. Lol

          • Nick’s daughter

            I like sparkling beverages, more than Anything!! Like Spumante on a special occasion…A pink zinfandel, moscato or Rose~. I, too, put in my time in my 20s, usually out @clubs/bars to see a Band! So, like you, am over that now. I Still love live music!!

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Me too Nd! Love pretty much any sparking beverage.
            I still go to concerts and shows a few times a year. I’d rather see live music than drink any day! It’s not that I have anything against alcohol, it just doesn’t do it for me anymore. I have problems with GERD and it tends to bother my stomach.
            I like to drink things that taste good to me, so I tend to stick with fruity drinks, I like frozen drinks (piña coladas, daiquiris, etc), but mostly I stick to my good old Diet Pepsi. Lol. It’s my one vice that I can’t give up. I love a nice cold glass of soda with lots of ice when I have my dinner and at night. I don’t really drink it at all during the day. I have tried substituting it with seltzer or something else, but it’s not the same. I drink the caffeine free one- I know diet soda is bad, but I can’t help it! ☺️

          • Nick’s daughter

            I have GERD, also!! Another member of the reflux club 😉. And I said “drink on special occasions/holidays” *to clarify, that is because of my meds. I do not drink because of my Rx-Prescriptions & am fine with that. Am always Amazed watching the HWives drink like fishies!! I realize they have car service when filming, so they don’t drive. But the amount of alcohol they chug is mind-boggling. I certainly believe Some of Them are taking meds, how do they drink like that?? SMH.

          • Contessa Bel Raven

            I hear ya! I rarely drink myself because of being on some pretty strong narcotics. If I drank like they did I couldn’t even predict how bad it would be. I just know it would be very very very bad.

          • Nick’s daughter

            I feel exactly the same!! At least we know better. And Do better. Guess the Real Housewives can hold it down…better them than me! Even back in the day,😉 I liked a vodka + cranberry or Parrot Bay rum w pineapple juice. Tequila makes me So Sick 😝 – yuck face!!

          • Why is this happening to us?

            I agree about drinking with the meds. It’s not smart to mix too many things together. That’s dangerous, depending on what other things you are raking. I am on Prilosec twice a day for the reflux. Sadly, I can’t live without it or I wake up in my sleep from the acid.
            I don’t know how these HW’s drink so much either! I guess I was like that when I was younger, but as I got older and started having the GERD, I realized the drinking was only making it worse. I have noticed lots of the HW’s are on Xanax and other anti anxiety meds or drugs for depression…..mixing those things with alcohol is like asking for a disaster. I think many of them are on those things for the wrong reasons too, but that’s an entirely separate discussion! 🙂

          • Nick’s daughter

            Dr. told me to choose ginger ale or give up my soda 😕! I do drink Coca-Cola, on occasion for the caffeine buzz 😉& sometimes have ginger ale. Boring, but it’s a change from my other option, Nestle lemon water. Zero calories & no fizz (bubbles).
            PS If you see me re-post the Asparagus recipe, nothing has changed… but tapestry couldn’t get it 😕 from the Open Post. I really want her to have that, so Hopefully 2nd time is the Charm. I don’t want to cause a problem here being repetitive…hope that’s Ok!☺

          • Why is this happening to us?

            No worries about the recipe! This is an open forum- you can post anything you like here! 😊

          • Nick’s daughter

            That is very cool 🍇. My Dad USED to make his own wine, many years ago. Now, he enjoys a good, glass of red 🍷 & I am glad he does. Fun to buy for him, he is So hard to shop for…😉

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Lol @ Meatballs Christie! I thought he lost weight?

            He did but it keeps coming back.

            He’ll always be meatballs to me. 🍝

          • Why is this happening to us?

            My other jersey friends aren’t crazy about him either. I’m glad he’s out of the running. Let’s hope Trump doesn’t pick him as his running mate.

            Hi!!!!! I’m well and how are you tonight? I just posted to you above, telling you how I’ve missed your humor.

      • MidwestMiddie

        Sadly ……..access to having abortions and restrictions plague over half of the states in the USA. Republican governors have put restrictions on what should be a medical procedure determined by a patient and her physician.
        BE SURE AND VOTE FOR EVERY FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL
        ELECTION. If you don’t, you may be shocked on day to find out
        just how many rights you’ve lost due to low voter turnout. Be Heard!

        Night! Sweet Dreams To Everyone!!

        • Why is this happening to us?

          I live in democratic, liberal NYC, so it never occurred to me that women were facing those problems elsewhere. I always do my duty and vote! 🙂
          I hope that doesn’t happen. Isn’t the Supreme Court ruling federal? So why should restrictions be allowed on a state by state basis?
          We will talk more about it another time.
          Sweet dreams MM!

          • Betty

            It is a federal law. Some states simply don’t pay for them or allow late term abortions. Nor should they!

          • Why is this happening to us?

            I thought that if it was a law, insurances should have to pay for them. I guess it’s different in that way on a state by state basis. Though I live in NY, I am not familiar with the insurance coverages here regarding abortion.
            I don’t believe anyone should be allowed a late term abortion.

      • Nick’s daughter

        We are standing together with that opinion! Am supportive of the way commenters here share opinions & listen to Everyone!! I never joined a debate team, but I took Journalism & Still like to write, all these years later…

        • Why is this happening to us?

          For the most part, everyone here is very respectful and mature when it comes to differing opinions. It’s one of the reasons I come here- no stupid arguments like on some other sites.
          Believe it or not, I HATED writing and English in school! Lol. I was never good at it, but developed better writing skills over the years due to necessity of writing papers in college & grad school. I was a science (bio) major and excelled in math & science. 🙂

          • Nick’s daughter

            I loved my Journalism class, and took Radio broadcasting (we had a actual radio station in my school!) I did Not excel in algebra 😜, I Even told my teacher, “I’ll Never use this again In My Life!!”& That was the truth!! ☺
            In college, I was in Arts, Entertainment & Media Management, I wanted to work behind the scenes in Concert Promotion. I did accomplish that, I wrote a long post about it on here recently…
            I soon learned, in the Entertainment* business-at that time-it isn’t So much WHAT you know, but WHO you know! I was very lucky & I knew some of the right people!! 😉 (*I was still in Chicago at the time, not yet in CA.)

          • Why is this happening to us?

            That sounds great!
            I was in the medical field for almost 20 years- I am still licensed, but I changed my career recently (due to health reasons) and went back to school to become a HS biology teacher. I am not teaching right now, but I worked in a special journalism high school. It was very interesting! The kids had their own tv newscast channel and produced their own tv shows and webcasts. They had cooking segments, interviews, etc.- it was really cool!
            I got to learn a lot about journalism while working there.
            Unfortunately, it is about who you know more that what you know. Sad but true.

          • Nick’s daughter

            Any student who gets YOU as their Biology teacher is SO very lucky!!
            We’ve been chatting all this time, and I can tell – Though I just learned about your medical background…you are compassionate, patient, understanding. I really appreciate your perspective!! You have a great outlook on life!! ☺ I wish you joy & much success in All you do!!
            I think of you as a ‘friend in my head’ *credit for the phrase to Wendy Williams & as a favorite ‘relative’ in Our Italian extended-family!! 💜 Hope that’s Ok with you, my dear Why!! 😉

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Aww thank you, Nick’s daughter! 😊 I feel the same way about you!
            That’s very sweet…
            The HS kids liked me as their teacher- I used to teach biology (called Living Environment in NY) and Health Education because of my medical background. They loved asking me about gory things I encountered while working on the ambulance. They thought it was so cool. Lol. It was pretty funny! They used to ask me all kinds of crazy questions too!
            I’m glad we met here – I’m always around if you need someone to talk to.
            I’m Italian too! 🇮🇹 Famiglia!

          • 95%SaraFlatpoint

            Just busy busy busy but in the hour or two I do get at night we’ve been watching netflix and I’m not so tempted to hop on the computer during commercials or when my interest flags. It’s refreshing to actually be interested and engrossed with no interruptions in a tv show.

          • 💚.

            Haha, I know exactly what you are talking about. I rarely watch TV just to watch tv, I’m always multi tasking, whether that means being on the computer, helping the kids, etc. It is a rare occasion that I can really devote my full attention to a show. Have a great day Sara!

        Thanks EP. I really miss this group!!! I guess it doesn’t matter if I don’t watch all the same programs as you guys. I forget that we can also talk about life and recipes. I spend a lot of time alone in my own head……which is often not a good thing……so I’m going to remember to come out and play here more often.
        😀

        • 💚.

          It really doesn’t matter if you watch the same shows as others. That is the beauty of the Open Post. We can discuss anything! What shows do you like to watch?

          • KT

            Well I tried some of the Housewives. I watched OC and Beverly Hills for a while but don’t watch either anymore. I couldn’t abide Vicki’s screeching — remember the 80’s party? I did pop in and out but I really don’t like Heather and then Tamra’s whole new found Christianity, being baptized in her pool while simultaneously putting out a faux porno video promoting her business just turned me off too. I also got completely freaked out by Carlton……I’m kinda superstitious and also do believe in Jesus and, therefore, the other guy and I didn’t want any of her satanic witchiness creeping through the TV and into my house. I tried Atlanta but couldn’t stand Kenya so I vowed not to watch while she was on it and never have. Also can’t do Beverly Hills because of Faye Resnick. I remember all too well the OJ trial and her blood money book about her “best friend” Nicole Brown and won’t support anything to do with her. So…….that leaves me with my one guilty pleasure……Dance Moms. That show has gone so far off the rails but I feel like I want to see it through to the bitter end. The moms are so out of control this season that they are making Abby look like a saint and one kid in particular has just gotten on my last nerve. I swear if my son came home with a girlfriend like her I would put a knife and container of salt in front of him and say “Just stab me in the heart now and pour this on top because that’s what you’re doing to me by dating this girl.”

            (I actually did that to him last year when he told me he wanted me to go to the doctor’s office and get his medical records so that he could give them to the recruiter and join the marines. That plus I told him I wasn’t going to help him get his head cut off by Isis and if he was old enough to join then he was old enough to go get his own damn medical records.)

          • 💚.

            This last season of RHOC was reprehensible. The insanity of what Bravo thinks is entertainment boggles my mind at times. RHOA was ruined the day Kenyuck appeared on the scene. She is in my top 5 all time worst HW’s. Faye the “morally corrupt”. Camille hit the nail on the head with that one. I use to watch Dance Mom’s but I hated all of the infighting with the moms and then there is Abby. I couldn’t stand her and the way she would treat the girls. Dancing is a hard profession and you do need to be a tough nut to be in the dance world, but I always felt like she took it much farther than necessary. Wow, if the moms are looking worse that Abby that is pretty bad indeed!

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            You’re always welcome to hang out & talk about whatever you wish.

            I agree about many of the HW franchises. I don’t think I’ll be watching OC next season.

            I do like the less popular Potomac & Melbourne shows these days. They are much lighter than the others.

          • Nick’s daughter

            So Much material to snark on in Potomac!! I can’t believe I watched the Season! Just for the utter ridiculousness w these women!! I’ll chat w you, ‘Mrs. Snarky’ about them…😉 Looking fwd. to it!! 😊

  • Marsbars09

    Good evening everyone! I’ve been posting on RHBH threads throughout the day and there is one question I’ve never thought to ask: Does anyone know the reason why the recurring theme of RHBH for the past several years is to take LVP down? Is Andy Cohen angry with her for some reason?
    If I were LVP I’d gracefully walk away from the series and see how the show does without her.

    • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

      I think it’s because LVP is a big fan favorite but not a favorite when it comes to Andy. He likes the HWs that will be as foolish as he wants them to be & gush over him.

      LVP doesn’t play that game with Andy.

      • Marsbars09

        Hi Snarky! I think LVP is up to something if she’s willing to endure abuse each season.
        And Andy is a f*cking a-hole for treating women the way he does.

        • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

          Hi Mars!

          It’s sad & obvious that LVP always a target & often ambushed. I don’t know what direction BH will take after this long season.

          I hope Andy’s mailbox is full of complaints about him & the direction he likes to see these franchises take these days…which is dark & nasty.

  • Why is this happening to us?
