    Snooki surrounded by strong professional women on the APPRENTICE could not survive tonight, after she became the Project Manager of a task and her team lost.
    Her Jersey Shore days being in a constant state of drunken stupor is clearly the opposite of the demands on the APPRENTICE.
    She quickly realized that she was not a good fit in this environment – and basically gave up.
    I was rooting for her as the underdog, unfortunately I lost as well!!
    Enjoyed the show again tonight, also because Arnold Schwarzenegger had kind departing words for Snooki.
    I now feel somewhat better!!

      Hi SF! I’m glad I stopped by this open post thread tonight because I would have forgotten CA was on! I’m watching it now!

      • Sunflower

        Hi Mars…
        Enjoy… and let me know what you think!!

        • Marsbars09

          Will do!

        • Marsbars09

          Hey SF! I just got done watching CA. The women won one out of two tonight. They lost the two prior competitions to the men. The ladies need to step their game up!
          Unfortunately Snooki was not tough enough for this show. I felt real bad for her when she couldn’t tell Arnie who she wanted to fire and broke down crying.
          Ernest Dickerson acted like he didn’t give a damn. I don’t know why he even signed up for the series.

          • Sunflower

            Snooki certainly thought it was tough to deal and probably missed her two young children.
            Although the premise is Charity, the competition is fierce and $50,000 is at stake.
            Charity is everything to me and I am rooting of course for the ladies.
            Ernest Dickerson was probably tired of the big egos, stubbornness and bickering of the guys. He didn’t have the drive enough to compete…. and I hope he writes a personal check of $20,000 to his Choice Charity.
            He can afford it..!!!

    • Why is this happening to us?

      I didn’t get to watch last night’s episode, but I saw her crying on the first episode and immediately thought this show is way out of her league. Typical millennial- crying in the boardroom. Lol

      • Sunflower

        If Snooki had her side-kick JWOWW with her… she would have been stronger.
        Something was clearly missing; maybe a pining feeling to be with her 2 small children?
        Seeing how relieved she was when she was sent packing… Arnold has my vote.
        “Hasta la Vista Baby”!!!

        • Why is this happening to us?

          Haha…I knew he would use that line sooner or later! Lol
          I’ll watch it tonight- have to wait for my husband to come home so we can watch it together.
          I think you are right about JWoww- the dynamic would be different for sure if she were there with her. I’m sure Snooki missed her kids. Do they get to go home after taping, or do they keep them sequestered for a few weeks? I’m wondering if those who live in LA were able to just go home. I’m pretty sure Snooki has a house in LA.

          • Sunflower

            You and your husband will enjoy this episode as well.
            Carson Kressley is adorbs… hope he makes it to the men’s finals!!
            Lisa Leslie anooooyyyyssss me!

          • Why is this happening to us?

            I’m looking forward to it! We thought the Trump version was better, but I still enjoy it with Ahnold and the fact that it’s in LA. It’s different, but still good.
            Love Carson too! I miss the Queer Eye days…we liked to watch that show too…lol. I think he will do well.
            Lisa Leslie is NOT a team player AT ALL. She keeps looking to throw everyone under the bus to get the heat off of herself! I’ll let you know what my thoughts are after this episode…lol. I’m dying to watch it, but hubby will be upset if I watch it without him.

          • Sunflower

            Can’t wait to hear what you think about this second episode.
            Don’t forget… it’s two hours long!

          • Why is this happening to us?

            He gets home late, so I probably wont be able to discuss it with you until tomorrow. He used to miss all the prime time shows because of work, but now with the DVR it’s changed everything! We can finally watch tv shows together after not being able to do it for so long. We’ve had it for a few years now and I can’t live without it. Regular tv sucks. Thank god we can FF through commercials for 2 hours! I noticed last week that there are an awful lot of ads for this show.

            I’m actually listening to an AM radio talk show/podcast right now that my cousin is a guest on. It’s so boring…lol 😴😴 They didn’t get up to her segment yet. I was hoping it would be towards the beginning so I wouldn’t have to listen to the whole thing! Lol 😌

          • Sunflower

            It’s always much more fun to watch with another party.
            We rotate with two neighbors and it’s like a get together with snacks and some wine.
            We only do that with two current shows: RHOA and RHOBH.
            When RHONY and RHONJ were on… we had “team fights”…. hilarious.
            It’s nice when hubbies enjoy the same shows we do… stop them from nagging…!
            Is your cousin famous and what is the name of the segment/subject.?

          • Why is this happening to us?

            It is definitely more fun watching with other people. No one I know watches HW or anything on Bravo, so I have to come here to snark about it. Lol. If I ever told any of my friends or family I watch these shows, I don’t think they would even believe me! Lol

            Sorry I didn’t get back to you right away- I couldn’t listen to the radio and type at the same time! (I could, but I wouldn’t have been able to concentrate on what they were saying!)
            My cousin isn’t famous… She is a Doctor of Chinese Medicine/Acupuncturist/Herbalist in FL. She was actually a corporate lawyer for many years and then gave it up and went back to school for Chinese medicine. She has been in practice now for about 10 years. She is also an ordained minister, so she does spiritual counseling well. Basically, she uses all those things to help treat her patients- body & mind. The segment was longer than I thought it would be (almost 25 minutes) and it was basically about how your mind has a great effect on what goes on in your body. She spoke about herself and her background and then talked about some of the treatments she uses. It was on AM radio, channel 880- The Biz (FL). I live in NY, but was able to listen live on the site. She did a great job!

          • Sunflower

            Great… thanks for sharing.
            Interesting subject… the body and mind are an integral part of each other. Nurturing is the key to life…. and the world of Chinese Medicine is as mysterious and effective at the same time.
            I swear by Auricular Acupuncture… I get biweekly treatments.
            Your cousin and I have similar backgrounds.
            Since I am snarking here I try not to talk about my profession… because I do not want anyone to be judgemental.
            Had a feeling you came from great stock; one can sometimes have a good feeling about people / posters … how they respond to you!
            You must have been listening intently and with great pride to the podcast.
            Again… thanks for sharing….

          • Why is this happening to us?

            That’s basically what she was speaking about. As a matter of fact, she calls herself an Integral Healer, but most people probably wouldn’t understand what that is! lol. I was actually in the medical field (Western medicine) for about 20 years. We compare notes sometimes and I love that Eastern medicine treats the body as a whole and how everyone’s treatment is different and tailored to them personally. That’s how it should be!
            Is the auricular acupuncture just for stress relief/relaxation? Or is it for a specific issue? You don’t have to answer if it’s personal, I just was curious. I have let her do some relaxation acupuncture on me and I felt it really helped. I really need to start going regularly for back pain, but unfortunately my insurance doesn’t cover it.
            Thanks! I feel the same way about you! 🙂 It’s funny how you can sense someone’s personality through their words, despite never meeting or talking in person. Pretty cool! 🙂

          • Sunflower

            Interesting backgrounds… soo happy!
            I played sports for many years and I am still an avid tennis player, therefore keep my body intact through acupuncture.
            I started doing acupuncture – not on the regular – since I was 22, because my parents believed in Chinese and Holistic medicine.
            My treatments aid in helping brain function, overall circulation and balance = overall health. I am healthy… no specific problems.
            I recommend everyone, whether one played sports or not… to give acupuncture a try.
            Laying still also brings you in an altered state of mind… pure serenity and connection with the soul.
            After my treatment… I just don’t want to get up and lay still…. amazing feeling!!

            You… comparing notes with your cousin is also a path to keeping the mind intact and nurturing of the soul.
            Knowledge is Power, especially in the world of Eastern Medicine.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            TBH, I didn’t know much about it at all until she started going to school for it. While she was an attorney, she lived in Hong Kong for a few years and I think that’s where she was exposed to it. I think she just didn’t feel fulfilled as an attorney and this field was really interesting to her.
            I think it’s great to do acupuncture regularly, even if there are no problems- it keeps everything in equilibrium and is a preventative treatment. I wish I knew about it when I was younger! I am definitely going to make that one of my resolutions this year. I totally know what you mean about feeling so relaxed after the treatment. Do they only put the needles in your ears? Or in other areas as well? I must be pretty sensitive, because i feel that nerve pain when the needles go in and I often bleed when the needles are taken out. My cousin said that means I’m “hot” whatever that means! Lol. I’ll take it! 😂
            We kind of learn from each other…I taught her some things about Western medicine and she has taught me about Eastern. You can never have too much knowledge!
            Before I really knew about what acupuncture was, I just assumed it was for injuries and pain. I never knew that it could be used for basically everything! She has even treated women with infertility and helped them to get pregnant; just recently, she had a pregnant woman with a baby that was breech and after a couple of treatments, the baby actually turned! I thought that was pretty amazing!

          • Sunflower

            Your “HOT” and bleeding, means that you respond well to the treatment and anything “wrong” internally is pushed out externally.
            The bleeding stops after a few treatments.
            I am not sure how long ago you had your last treatment… but the needles now on the market are super tin.
            Insert and out… you do not feel a pinch.
            Your New Year’s Resolution is heading into the right direction..
            Acupuncture is not a myth… there is so much truth to it. The patients of your cousin are very lucky to have her!
            You can strike a deal with your acupuncturist to get a package deal…. will be much cheaper.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Oh that’s interesting about being “hot.” I haven’t had enough treatments on a regular basis to notice that the bleeding stopped. I would say I haven’t had a treatment in about 5 or more years.
            Thank you for recommending a package- that sounds like a much better idea. I wish I could just go to my cousin, but she is so far away now. I think she might be moving back to NJ within the next couple of years, so hopefully it will be close enough for me to see her. She went to school here in NYC, so she has some colleagues here that she can refer me to. I’ll definitely work something out ASAP.
            Thanks for reminding me that I really need to do this. I’ve been meaning to, but it just hasn’t been a priority. She always yells at me and says that my health IS a priority, but you know how life just gets in the way sometimes. 🙂

          • Sunflower

            You need to relax your mind and just surrender to serenity.
            I strongly believe that you are in charge of your health and have the power to keep yourself healthy!!

          • Why is this happening to us?

            I will remember to do that!
            I do believe the mind is definitely linked to a lot of physical symptoms. Oftentimes, things like stomach/gut issues have to do with stress. The same goes for high blood pressure/certain heart irregularities and most auto-immune disorders. Sometimes there structural or anatomical issues that cause those symptoms, but many times it is mind over matter.
            When I was younger, I worked as an EMT on an ambulance for several years- you would be amazed at how many people think they are having a heart attack and it turns out to be anxiety, or people that have difficulty breathing and are making their symptoms worse because they are thinking about it and getting into their own head.

    I didn’t get a chance to post on the RHOA recap thread, but I will take the opportunity to comment here.
    I was absolutely taken aback by the way Kandi went off on her former employee, Johnny. I’ve never seen Kandi so unhinged. (I take that back. Kandi did lose her sh*t when Cynthia’s sister pushed her at the pajama party three years ago). I think Kandi and her staff behaved unprofessionally towards Johnny. When Johnny mentioned to Kandi they should have met privately to resolve any issues, Kandi just got angrier. The woman lacks tact, diplomacy and professionalism. I also didn’t like that Kandi’s employees laughed as Kandi was cursing Johnny out. They are such a-holes.
    I was also floored when Kandi exclaimed, “you can call me a b*tch and a-hole, but fake I am not”. Kandi is such a village idiot.

    • She said on Twitter that she was very upset he had not mentioned or come to her with any problems till he was sure he can get his grievances on TV. Can you imagine the number of people that try to use them to get their 15 minutes of fame? I think it gets overwhelming when its people you consider friends. Plus looks like Kandi has been picked for the villain role/edit this season.

  • Marsbars09

    I think Kenya was in over her head toying with Matt. Matt acted certifiable on last night’s episode. I wonder why the driver did not press charges if Matt really hit him in the face? I’m glad Peter told Matt and Kenya to leave each other alone. They are both insane!
    Porsha sneaking Todd into her mama’s house for a night of passion was just lame. These are grown ass people. How come Todd couldn’t bring Porsha to his place, that is, if he has one?

    • I can’t watch that show anymore. Porsha is the dumbest person I’ve seen in a long time and I just can’t take it.

    • They all sign some type of agreement not to sue each other so maybe that is extended to all the extras (like the driver). Remember when Kenya’s friend was beat down at that Pajama party but did not press charges against Apollo. I think he would have if he could. Kenya cancelled Matt’s ticket and told him to stay away but I believe Production somehow got him there, Peter is the go to guy to film with ex’s like Walter and Kordell when Production wants them on film. That driver might be part the Production team?

      I can’t even stand to look at her hateful lying bitter face.

    • HankyPanky

      Orange would suit her

    • Why is this happening to us?

      For what? Stealing from the dollar bins at Target? Lmao. Whatever she stole probably doesn’t even add up to $50! They would be spending more on lawyers fees, etc. I thought she did community service for that?
      BTW- that pic is horrible! Lol

  • HankyPanky

    Didn’t realise till I saw this clip that Rinna made contact with Kim’s face….

  • Demona

    Leah Messer Sims whatever her last name is these days – her house was trashed on tonight’s episode, anyone catch that?

    • Why is this happening to us?

      My DVR never recorded the episode 😐
      I’ll have to check it out when I watch. Remember how bad it was last year? She’s like a hoarder.

      • Demona

        YES! This week they reshowed it under guise she was moving but that was hella mess for just moving, even the shelves were crapped up

        • Why is this happening to us?

          I finally watched last night. I have a feeling that when her house gets too messy, she just moves! Lol. It’s the only explanation as to why she has moved so many times! I think she bought this house, so I hope they plan on staying there a while.

  • Sunflower

    Sheree could easily ask either Kenya or Kandi for a loan to cover her latest LIEN. *** Either one CAN write her a check IMMEDIATELY! ***
    Rejoining RHOA after so many years is exposing her “forever strapped for cash” in the worst possible way.
    Don’t understand why Bob is pressing to move into the Chateau, but can’t help cover Sheree’s expenses!!
    Sheree should stop meddling in everybody’s business and equally stop faking her other scenes (book, modelling, etc.).
    Pfffttt….

    • Why is this happening to us?

      I think people would respect Sheree more if she stopped with this charade and got rid of the Chateau and bought a home that she could actually afford. Even when she is done building, how does she plan on paying for the furnishings, the utilities and the taxes? Then she also needs money for her car, insurance and to live off of! I’m sure the amount of money she will need to maintain this house will be a burden to her forever. Not a good idea to buy a home you can’t afford! She is letting her pride get in the way of making a smart decision, and in doing so, she looks even more foolish. I don’t know what she is trying to prove… Reminds me of the Giudices who live in a house they can’t afford either. People need to stop worrying about the Joneses.

      • Sunflower

        I feel for her…. she had a dream.
        I remember her enthusiasm when she was talking to the builder about the specifications of the house.
        We definitely wanted her to finish it and move in.
        She is too stubborn and has too much pride to get rid of it, especially in light of the fact that she made fun of Kenya’s “House Warming Glitches”!!
        This lien doesn’t help her from having sleepless nights.
        Tough One!!

        • Why is this happening to us?

          I know she had a dream, but that ship sailed a long time ago…lol
          I was rooting for her as an independent woman who was building her dream home with no help from anyone, but this has been dragged out for so long, I think she needs to give it up already. She should just sell it as is and let someone else finish building it. Clearly she doesn’t have the money. I wonder if she is under water with the house. Not sure what she paid and what it would be worth now, but it’s worth getting rid of just so she can sleep at night and not worry about how she is paying for this house she can’t afford.
