    S11.E05: Shark Bait

    No mental health professional should attempt delving into the psyche of Bethenny without first sending down a canary to check the air for toxicity. He could've been killed!! I don't doubt that Bethenny is grieving but jeez, every other sentence is a not so humble brag about how Dennis couldn't get off her jock!! It is like watching B give herself a tongue bath about how desirable she is every time she talks about Dennis. I gotta admit I am half waiting for her to make the leap that he ended it all because he couldn't have her. Let me get this straight. So a still married man who has been separated for years and still hadn't bothered to even file for divorce or formal separation, but who B refers to as his ex-wife, proposes to her, their "engaged" but she continues to date other people, he declares he will never marry again, except that he is still technically married. WTF?!?!! Wow Lu. I admit to not being able to quit the Countess even at her most haughty but her actions this episode was some of the rudest I have ever seen and I can't ride with her on this. Nope. It wasn't just ungracious and declasse, it was just nasty. In the words of another HW that has fallen out of favor: "So nasty and so rude!" (tm Nene). No, the room ain't winning any interior design awards, but it is clean, free of noxious odors, comfortable and most importantly FREE! STFU, you will only be there 2-3 nights and stop badgering and outright insulting your hostess. What made it worse is that Tinsley, being an actual gracious guest, offered to take the unwanted room and that still isn't enough for Countess. She got rude with Tinsley too. The fuck is wrong with Lu. Dale plastic surgery is awful and I am tired of people lying to her saying she looks great! She doesn't! next week is gonna be lit. Sonja Morgan in the time warp again lamenting all that she lost.

    S11; E20 Caught in the Middle

    Yes and yes. NYC and Potomac are my fave of the franchise right now. My fave scene last season on Potomac was Karen laughing at annoying ass Ashley imitating her wearing Karen's own damn wig. Can you even begin to imagine Nene's reaction if someone did that to her?

    S10:10 Moving Meltdowns

    There's enough prairie dog plague to go around. I always wonder if they have health insurance. None of them seem to have a 9 to 5 that would entitle them to benefits so how did they pay for Truly's hospitalization and poor Ysabel's doctor's visits? Obamacare? Medicaid? Good point. I don't see a hint of curl in any of his youthful photos.

    S11; E20 Caught in the Middle

    One little thing I noticed but forget to comment on was that it appears that Mike, Cynthia's boo, had not yet been introduced to her BFF Kenya until that very night. Kenya met him and said 'nice to finally meet you' or words to that effect. But Nene was "fake" though and still managed to look petty and ridiculous. She faked smiled hard when Kenya walked over to greet everyone but her. Kenya dusted her and Nene started making comments under her breath. Marlo walked, mimed gagging herself, paid Kenya some fake complaints with Nene being equally fake saying Kenya looked gorgeous. Then cut to the end of the night, Kenya makes it a point to say goodbye to everyone but Nene. Nene gets loud and keeps calling Kenya's name, determined to get Kenya's attention and Kenya pays her dust yet again with Nene fake smiling talking behind her back about a baby buffalo.

    S11; E20 Caught in the Middle

    The best thing about last night's episode of Real Housewives of ATL was the promo for the upcoming season of Real Housewives of Potomac. I am mad at Nene for different reasons. To say I am not a Kenya fan is to put it mildly. That giggle/laugh that preceded Kenya's entrance into the party sets my teeth on edge. But I digress, Nene acting a ripe petty fool, showing how effortlessly and easily Kenya gets under her skin is a more sure-fired way for Kenya to worm her way back onto this show then Kenya posting Brooklyn pics while the show airs and Kandi and Cyn allegedly plotting but Nene is too stupid to see that. I honestly do not follow any social media so I was at a loss as to why Nene and Kenya were on the 'outs' when based on the last reunion, I thought they were if not amicable had at least reached a detente. Thanks to all who explained the SM shade. I hope Gregg goes into remission from his Stage 3 colon cancer. I also hope that he escapes that Stage 11 200 lb not so benign tumor that is his wife Nene. Nene uses Gregg's cancer as an excuse more than Gregg ever has. She has been bludgeoning her co-workers with it all season. They are all supposed to know that she is going through a lot. There is no one to hold her purse. Yet she doesn't even now her man can't have ice. Did I hear correctly? Did Nene say something about Kenya having a baby hippo or something? She has a lot of nerve. That blue/pink wig Porsha wore to her baby reveal was the worst and not at all flattering!! That party planner better be refunding some money. That party looked like it should've been for Ronald and Shamar's twins. What was the point of Tanya at that meeting w/Cyn, Nene and Kandi? Cyn looked better at Porsha's event than she did her own. That hat was ugly and didn't say "island" or "Caribbean" to me. That hat was some RHOC Tamra/Vicki Lake Havasu bullshit. If Mike had been dating Kenya, everyone would be saying he was being paid. How convenient that he drops probably, possibly, perhaps maybe proposing to Cyn during the finale episode. Kenya - she has a beautiful, healthy daughter and seems to have a good huzzband, but I don't need or want her back on this show. She had her shot and she blew it. She has called Porsha a dummy for years, but Porsha outplayed, outsmarted and outlasted her. Porsha has this show, a special on the way and multisteams of income (don't know if they are profitable, but she is trying). Kenya should be taking the victory lap that Porsha is now. Kenya would have had her own multi-episode wedding special, but she played herself right out of a big check and opportunity. No update on Kandi's surrogacy?

    S07.E13: Kelly's Story

    WOW!!!! That was a twist that I never expected and didn't want. Such a sad episode and such a sad person. Doubly so because she was likeable and so morose and sad in the beginning and start smiling and joking at the end. She had real hope and it ended tragically. She is the Frank Grimes of My 600 lbs life. I noticed that she had (or they showed) very few photos of her as a child or teen. I don't think I have ever seen Dr. Now so concerned. Even when she slipped up and gained he was gentle and never really read her the riot act. Her condition must have been incredibly dire because he never threatened her with being dropped or kicked out of the program. He just said if she gained she would be admitted back into the hospital and put on a controlled diet plan. James "oww mah leigss" K had a supposed heart condition and no such offer was ever made to him for his numerous and egregious fuckups (gaining damn near 100 lbs in a munt) and I think his ass is still alive. So many health issues. Since she had an embolism(s) in the past, was surprised she got on a plane. My dad was diagnosed with chronic heart failure about 3 years ago and yes it is a frightening and life-alternating diagnosis but it is manageable. It took a bit over a year to find the proper med combo for him and he had the ICD implanted, which he couldn't even be put under anaesthesia for. Just as important is his diet. He has to manage his sodium and fluid intake. He doesn't always do a good job of that. He has been in the hospital 2 times for excess fluid retention, but by the grace of God he is doing well now though. My mother, his primary caregiver, is on a much deserved and needed cruise and he is off to Miami to visit his sister so I am worried about his self control being around all that delicious Island inspired food down there. I want to know so much more about how Kelly was being treated for heart failure. The fact that she was even able to undergo surgery, be under general anaesthesia was a shock. Dr. Now mentioned a cardiologist. Did she have a device implanted? I assume she was on heart meds. Was she on a low sodium diet? That salt laden food she was ordering in rehab did her heart condition no favors. Was she watching her fluid intake? I paid particular attention to that as I saw she had a giant 50 oz cup during rehab. Cousin Gary had a beautiful home. I was curious about the wife we never saw.

    S09.E07: Eat, Drink, and Be Married

    I know I may be alone with this and folks may be tired of the continued Umansky pimping of The Agency, but I wanted to see that party. Kyle has a great planner and does put on great events. I swooned at the spread at her last event. The charcuterie looked heavenly and I mean like something you would see laid out on heaven's orientation day. Did they say Kyle was hosting this event for 400 people at her house?!?!!? It is a big house, but damn that's a lot of people!

    S09.E07: Eat, Drink, and Be Married

    How dare people spread vicious truths about Dorit!! This bitch can really go! I hate all the petty drama she brings to the show that spans and takes over the whole season, starting with fucking pantygate, lategate, and now lucygate. She needs to be put out the gate, and her gnomey husband too. Denise's wedding was not my taste, but I loved it. The location was stunning but most of all, I love when a bride realizes she isn't reinventing the wheel here. She wasn't trying to impress guests and wringing her hands over the right shade of peach for her linens. It is just a day and party to kick off a new chapter in your life. The marriage > a wedding. So chill that she didn't care that her black lab was rubbing up against her new white wedding dress or that her daughter wore sneakers. I pray for her second season. Aaron is just .... sketchy (with his 3rd leg). He looks like the type that gets pec and calf implants and swears by human growth hormone. She has probably called them for self-promotion and pap strolls enough. An hour is in fact too long. Only takes a minute when your ass is dead broke and can't pay anyone anyway. Look, 10-20% of Boy George's earnings ain't enough to keep Dorit in ugly Chanel suspenders. Not to defend Dorit, but I believe that phrase is quite common in Mordor, from which she hails. I heard there was many a raised eyebrow when she chose to marry a goblin. Lawd, $300k for a kitchen remodel - I want that life. That stove in the model kitchen alone must be over $50k.

    10:09 Kody's Secret Plan

    Watching the Browns dig around in dirt is definitely less interesting without the threat of prairie dog plague. I completely zoned out during Kody's ridiculous meeting about the Difficult Brown Compound. It really just highlights how full of shit they are about all the supposed benefits of this lifestyle. According to Kody's own coin slot of a mouth, they don't even want backyards that face either. They would all rather be shot dead than live together in one house/share a kitchen and share child-raising responsibilities, which is the whole freaking point of this bullshit. They just need to face the fact that they are really just "normies" with a haphazard man-sharing plan. Yellow and blonds is a "no" but she looked great for whatever reason. I know this will likely never happen, but part of me wishes Dayton would move to NYC, San Francisco or some other big, expensive city and see what happens. And this is why Christine is enjoying a good relationship with Kody and probably getting the D on the regular. Remember she was the one that didn't even want to say anything negative about the move for fear of upsetting him or being seen as negative. I wish their was devil with little horns emoticon because this is deliciously devilish and delightful!!!

    S11.E18: The Model Bride

    LOL! I am okay with Greg but I've been getting the impression for while now that he likes to think he is wiser than he is. Some of the stuff he says is either total basic common sense or just make you go "huh" because it is nonsensical but the people around him act like he is saying something profound but being in the South that maybe acting respectful towards an elder. I have no problem believing that Greg mean, especially if he is struggling with cancer, but that is different from being abusive, which Nene has not alleged. So I am not gonna to assume that.

    S10:08 Aspyn's Royal Wedding

    For real. Not only are her brows bad, but she makes it all the more worse with terrible eyeshadow too. I don't even know what color the shadow is - like a gray, dark brown or something. Or maybe her brow pencil is bleeding down onto her eyelids. No excuse for this. Meri's hat was indeed terrible. Meri may not be considered edgy by any definition of the word but neither was that. It was like the maker recycled Mykelti wedding garbage flowers. I get the feeling that this was light advertising for the hat maker. Yes, it may look assholey for Meri to have her fix it the night before her son's wedding but the alternative was Meri not wearing it or forced to wear a hat she considered ugly, neither of which would have made the maker of the hat's business look good. I thought what Meri wound up wearing was a marked improvement which was underserved by Meri's bad taste in clothing and shoes.

    S11.E18: The Model Bride

    Lovely wedding and the couple just radiated with love. I preferred Eva's 2nd dress as opposed to the first, mainly because I detested the tiara. Reminded me of something you'd see on Toddlers and Tiaras. I was a bit 'meh' on the venue. I noticed that with the exception of Cynthia, who had her wedding at a museum, the ATL HWs seem to prefer non-traditional venues like warehouses that are blank canvases and have to be swathed in drapes and fabrics in order to be transformed into their vision. I love architecture and interior design so I prefer to see some architectural interest besides white drapes. I would think that would cut down on the design cost. I bet a good deal of Eva's budget went into staging. But she seemed to love it so that is what matters. I actually gasped when they showed snippets of Greg and Nene's wedding this episode. Utterly disrespectful!! Well, we did get Lil Mo signing "4ever" when Dennis proposed. FYI, I put that song back into rotation. I forgot how great her voice is. I miss power singers. Hell, I miss R&B. Elli Mai ain't cutting it.

    S10:08 Aspyn's Royal Wedding

    This shows how half-assedly (hey, if the Browns can make up and misuse words, so can I) I was watching this show. I was so deep into my game of Cookie Jam that I didn't even register what the mother of the brides were wearing. Meri's look from head to toe is an abomination. But I guess you can't expect people who peddle and wear Lularoe to have great taste or wardrobes. The dress is bad enough but beige wedge sandals, that are barely worthy of wear to lunch at your local Outback restaurant, with gold and black evening wearing? She doesn't own a single pair of black pumps or something? Aspyn never seems more like Christine's daughter than when she is acting all gushy about Mitch.

    S10:08 Aspyn's Royal Wedding

    The wedding venue was absolutely stunning. Aspyn and Mitch picked not only the perfect place but the perfect time of year because all the flowers were in full bloom. You know Mykelti, actual flowers and not flowers made out of garbage. Aspyn made a beautiful bride but I didn't love her dress. Kody is always pretty awkward and try hard around non-family but I've noticed that his behavior is that much more egregious and damn near bordering on offensive when he is in a group of guys. Its almost like he is overcompensating for something. One small interesting detail. We now know who is responsible for his new curly lock styles. He said of course, Robyn (and I think he also mentioned Maddie) have been helping him find products and ways to better style his curly locks. It was nice to see Kody pay a modicum of attention to Truly, even if he did offend her by saying they have the same hair. LOL! Did I mishear? Did Robyn say that the mega mansion she is renting costs pretty much the same to rent as the other houses? So a 7 bed/5.5 bath home costs the same to rent as a 3 bed/2-3 bath house? Where they do that at? Its a lucky thing Tony was wearing purple. If he was wearing red and carrying a drink in his hand people might have mistaken him for the Kool-aid man.

    S09.E05: The Proof Hurts

    I will admit that I am worn out with the HW weeps and wrings her hands over a child going to college, but the Umansky scenes were by far my most favorite scenes of the episode. I could happily watch Mo curl his wife's hair for 30 str8 minutes. I am actually weirdly happy for his success and he is my fave franchise husband. However, the Umanskys have questionable test in eye wear. I've never seen so many ugly sunglasses in my life.

    S09.E05: The Proof Hurts

    I didn't see WWHL, but apparently we got the whole 'just wait, all will be revealed later this season and you will all see I (we) were right" from Kyle. I've watched all the HW franchises except NJ, Dallas & Miami and I can't tell you how many times I've heard that shit. What I can tell you is how many times it turned about to be true - Zero and Never. Every time I see Rinna, I think of that old Rodney Dangerfield one-liner:

    S10:07 Divided We Move

    I cackled when no one would ride with Kody on the trip to AZ. However, then I got kinda pissed because it seemed to wasteful to have drive that gas guzzling SUV with only 1 person in it. Couldn't they have consolidated and taken 1 less car? I can't find Mitch as repugnant as Fat Tony, however, Mitch and Aspyn situation just makes me more uncomfortable than Fat Tony and his wife. Fat Tony and Mykelti just seemed equally yoked (annoying and entitled) and they seem to dig one another equally. Why Asypn is so enamored of Mitch is utterly baffling. She seems way more into him that he is her. Plus, there is the whole plyg thing. Mitch says he hasn't heard the 'call' but is open to it. Frankly, I think just being open to it is 'the call'. He just has it on hold until he can finesse Asypn into thinking she heard it too.

    S11.E01: Divided, They Summer

    I am more bummed out about the Lu/Dorinda fallout than I was about Carole and B. I knew Lu and B wouldn't last, but it was great that B was there for her during Lu's time of crisis. A+ reference. Her flirting is embarrassing and cringe-worthy, especially since the majority of the people we see subjected to it are in the service industry. I admit I always wanted to be that girl with 2 dates in 1 night - meeting Mr. X for drinks and Mr. Y for dinner. Sounds exhausting though. With her subtle as a sledge hammer flirt game, do y'all believe Ramona dates as prodigiously as she claims?

    S11.E01: Divided, They Summer

    YAS!!! My fave main bishes are back!!! I was entertained the entire hour. I don't care. I find these women's mundane everyday life more interesting and exciting than what passes as high drama on the other franchises. I also love that with the exception of Tinsley, they don't walk around the house or even the streets with a face beat to the gawds AT. ALL. TIMES and wearing label whore clothes to the point of looking like costumes. BH squad engage a glam squad and does a costume change just to have drinks in their hotel rooms. Loved Luann's and Bs homes. Lu's backyard is so verdant and lush! I feel for B's loss, but I can't help but roll my eyes with her mentions of 'He wanted to marry me. We were engaged. I was wearing his ring.' I don't think Lu owes Dorinda an apology, but Lu definitely needs to fall back and go see if she can find that refreshing attitude and capability for self-reflection she had after her 1st rehab stint. I love me some Lu, but she can be very self-centered and I have no problem seeing her as a high maintenance friend who takes more than she gives. Dorinda was out of pocket, but she was there when no one else was, perhaps to her own detriment. I wonder if Sonja brought that apt or is she renting? Spoiler alert: she did paint that apt pink y'all. https://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-new-york-city/home-design/sonja-morgan-new-apartment-video-tour Duct tape and towels over the windows??? Girl... That is some trap house shit!! I am a verified broke bitch because I didn't even know that Bentley made SUVs. If you haven't driven in 5 years, starting back with a 6 figure car probably isn't the way to go. It seemed incredibly wasteful and ridiculous to send a car, a Bentley no less to someone who hasn't driven in 5 years so they can drive to the Hamptons. Just rent a freaking car!! Tinsley was being entirely too extra with all the screaming or dramatics. It is a car not Elon Musk's Space X shuttle.

    S09.E04: Bahama Drama

    Oh Lawd be my savior with this petty BH drama. What should amount to 2 episodes at most is likely to stretch out the entire season? Seriously, 2 of these HW are living a whole life build on fallacies & lies and we've spent already 4 episodes on a pet adoption gone bad? We got broke, square titted Dorit getting heckled on the beach for scamming investors and her husband who owes everyone, including a Vegas casino millions (if this were the 50s or 60s, he'd be taking a dirt nap out in the LV desert) and no one mentions this shit? Erika whose octogenarian husband is up to his liver spotted bald head in $15m of debt and allegedly has a whole mistress on the side, but mums the word while we have to listen to the most stilted cold phone call between a husband and wife EVER. Erika might as well have been talking to Alexa for all the warmth and true sentiment exchanged between those two. At least Alexa wishes you a good morning/afternoon/night on occasion. Why are the BH's real lives so worthy of protection? I am not buying the whole wanting to project extreme wealth BS either. Kyle yammered on and on about her dumb show but yet not a peep about it being canceled? I don't blame Lucy for biting PK on the face. She probably thought his face was a boiled ham about to go bad. The whole "LVP manipulates me" storyline is just so weak and tired and it is not because I don't believe it is true. LVP is a plotting ass woman. I don't believe that Teddi and the 2 Johns (sounds like porno) hatched this thing out together without Lisa's knowledge. However, at what point does anyone take personal accountability?? Is she casting spells over the other women?? How are grown women REPEATEDLY being mind controlled by the same person who was called out as manipulative 7 seasons ago. Are they zombies?? The Walking Dead? Teddi played herself. She does not and will never have direct proof that Lisa is the puppet master. Lisa (and Ken) will always have plausible deniability. I despise Dorit. Just absolutely despise. She is a cartoon villain. I can't believe she had the gall and bladder to say this was about her and not the dog and also to say the problem isn't a direct result of her failing to return the dog to LVD. Fuck is wrong with that crazy bitch! Never trust a bitch with a faux accent. Don't give me that some people are suspectible to accents and adopt them due to proximity. Dorit's accent comes off as someone who has English as a 2nd language. Her speech is so belabored that you think she is doing an English translation in her head. Can we offer the woman who heckled Dorit on the beach and spilled all her tea on the blog a diamond to hold? I really need someone to put Dorit and PK on 100% blast. Rolex watches are big, clunky and ugly and I don't get the fascination and pay tens of thousands for that mess.

    Excuse you. Prostitution whoring is WERK!!!! It ain't honest but it pays the bills (until the men realize dealing with that much crazy ain't worth Staub's Nobel Laureate head game).

    S11.E16: Bye Wig, Hello Drama

    Did I hear right? Did Nene say on WWHL that she was cast in a show that was filming in Canada? Who keeps hiring her? It really kinda irks given there are so many struggling black actresses out there. Yeah, the more she wanted to keep people out, the more intrigued I became by its possible contents. Yes, this was quite sad to hear damn near all the women remark that they felt naked, incomplete, less than without a ton of fake hair. Just an indication that it is less about style and more of a crutch/armor.

    S11.E16: Bye Wig, Hello Drama

    At this point, Kandi is just showing up to these events for the free meals. In her defense though, those crab legs looked good as hell!!! This was a good episode. The producers were messy as fuck. Those time stamps were a precursor to fuckery!!! I really, really had trouble following the Marlo/Nene argument. I get that Gregg urgently texted Marlo twice to go to Nene and be there/comfort her, Marlo drops everything (e.g. hair/nail appt) to rush over to Nene fearing the worst. This is where I lose the thread. Was Nene home and just refuse to let Marlo thru the gates and in the house or was she not home and out shopping? Both kinda suck, but the latter sounds kinda callous given blot clots are deadly and her going out to run errands while Gregg was in surgery the week before. I think Marlo was truly was alarmed by Gregg's text and trying to be a good friend. Nene was just an asshole all around. I don't understand her yelling for Marlo to 'just support her' when really, Marlo dropping everything to run to be at her side is supporting her. WTF does Nene want? Just blind allegiance and parroting whatever Nene wants her to. After Kandi said this though, we saw Porsha open up a side door and say 'oh here it is' or something to that effect. Kandi then opened another door and exclaimed almost the same thing. We then hear Porsha say Nene's closet was "goals." Nene didn't lose her shit until the cameraman was making his way into her closet. So strange. So aggressive. There was no excuse for her behavior. Tanya is a good one and better than me. When all that vomiting was going on she was just getting towels and wiping up and being chippy chirpy. LOL! She is growing on me but I am can't say that she is a fit, but I like the fresh air she brings so far.
