    S07.E24: Reunion Part 3

    I dislike Beau because to me he seems fake. I dislike him the same reason I dislike "Mary Sues" on regular tv shows - because he is portrayed as being perfect and that naturally triggers something in me not to like him. Also, how in the world did no one mock him on the reunion for the battered man response? Whatever.

    S07.E23: Reunion Part 2

    Wow, I essentially hate everyone other than James/Ariana/Tom/Scheana. They're gross people. Like a pack of wolves, they wanted to shred James alive. What does Katie's situation have to do with anything? It didn't happen on the show. So what? I don't even get the comparison? Ugh, I just want them all fired other than those four. Let them live off camera in the Valley. Don't want to see Beau next week. He's fake and just there for the cameras.

    S07.E22: Reunion Part 1

    Agreed. I was going to mention that in my original post actually, that it's like they all have this agreement now not to criticize and it makes for terrible television. Lala sits there and calls everyone a loser basically for being on the show and how MYMAN is too important for such things, but Scheana and Stassi just very carefully, like they're afraid to poke at the beast are like, "woah that's a little not cool. We'll still be BFFs of course, but please refrain from calling me and my bf/date a loser." It almost reminds me of how the women of RHONY were with Bethenny when she first returned. Except that (and I say this as someone who is not a Bethenny fan), Lala is soooooooooooooo not on Bethenny's level in any way.

    Unpopular opinion, they need James IMO. They need conflict. They need people who aren't buying million-dollar mansions and who don't all get along. The rest of the cast, great that they're in good (? - well that's how they want to portray it) relationships and have money now, but it doesn't work with the premise of the show, which was to watch poor, struggling waiters in LA who have unstable relationships. I think they need new blood without all the money/fame and more people that hang out with James. At least he's funny. Take him out of the equation and what's left of the show? Stassi going to a fake oracle and the girls sucking up to Lala? Zzzzz. Oh and Stassi, yeah, Lala "worked to" be your friends because she essentially bought your friendships. Do you think for one second if Lala's boyfriend was another waiter at Sur the women would have given her the time of day? Nope. They only are good with her because of the PJs/status and money of Randall. Because they gang up on James, it makes me root for him. Can't believe I'm on team James/Tom/Ariana/Scheana. That said, Raquel is super grating to listen to. But it is a total double standard. They can all attack James/Raquel and it's fine, but if James dares say something about Brittany, suddenly he's attacking her family? WTF?

    S07.E21: Rules of Engagement

    I wonder if his job is full-time or part-time. It seems like he is with her a lot, even during the day, and then night times are always full. Must not have a demanding job.

    S07.E21: Rules of Engagement

    You know, as awful as Scheana is and I think she'd be a pretty terrible friend IRL, I was thankful for her last night. Because this may be petty of me, but I'm not watching this show to see mature people lead calm, happy lives. That is great for people generally, but not really great for my entertainment. Beau and Stassi may be a wonderful couple, but that doesn't mean I am entertained by them being lovey dovey every episode. I need the cringe, the fighting, the drama. If it's just them complimenting one another, it doesn't really do it for me. Also, are Kristen and Carter over? I didn't see him last night and I think he has been absent from her Instagram?

    S07.E20: Brittany and the Beast

    I love how Scheana told Adam that she won't broadcast her date on social media. No, you'll just air it on national television. That's much better. Ugh she is so cringey. It's so obvious how much she wants to be more with Adam.

    S09.E10: A Supreme Snub

    I really thought it was mean and hateful how Camille brought up Lisa's teeth. And the way the other women cackled was just gross. That said, even before RHOBH this year, while watching VPR, I thought that Lisa's teeth looked bigger/different. Did she get veneers?

    S07.E19: The Exorcism of Stassi Schroeder

    Raquel is such an airhead. Kristen and Ariana's friendship - good for them. I could never do it, but I guess if you're going to be in this group, you have to be okay with being around your ex and their gf/bf all the time. So, I think Beau is a more outspoken Tom Schwartz and more manipulative. Schwartz made mistakes re cheating so no one held him up as being perfect and some of the cast thought Katie was justified in her anger. But yet he was always the victim. It seems like the dynamic between Stassi and Beau is similar, but way more disparate because everyone basically thinks Beau is perfect and that Stassi should do everything in her power to not mess it up. That is a lot of pressure on Stassi. It also would encourage Beau to feel entitled like "Yeah, everyone seems to agree I'm the best thing that ever happened to Stassi and perfection. Any disagreement we have, I can make it Stassi's fault." It works for now, but I think if their relationship continues down this road, it would be exhausting to be Stassi. Of course Katie does not want to continue GNI. She is lazy and lacks drive/work ethic. She wanted to do GNI originally, not because she had any desire to do so, but to rub it in James' face.

    S07.E18: End of an Era

    Yes. I dated someone before who every time I brought up a concern or issue that I had in the relationship, any doubts, would freak out. They'd tell me how they're broken or they couldn't sleep because what I said or how they now doubt everything about themselves or how they doubt us. It was all out of manipulation because it made me keep my mouth shut because I didn't want to deal with the fallout. Now, I think Beau is a billion times better than my ex, but based on my own experience, if you are in love with someone and they react to any type of critical opinion or disagreement by putting the relationship as a whole into question or talking about how they couldn't sleep, etc., then it can have the effect of making the other person, if they are desperate enough to keep the relationship, shut up and take it because they don't want to upset the person.

    S07.E18: End of an Era

    I didn't think she was yelling, but maybe I'm not remembering right. He can feel however he wants but if he honestly feels battered, he is messed up and/or has a screwy perception of the world. That word has implications in that it is saying the other person is being abusive and I don't think that should be thrown around.

    S07.E18: End of an Era

    I didn't think Stassi was being a crazy psycho last week. Why was she apologetic for it and making Beau apparently sob the whole night? I mean, why was he sobbing to begin with? It seemed manipulative and a way to make her feel bad. She wanted to go to bed at 3 am....so? Go to bed Beau. Or break up and stay out forever. Idk, I'm a little bit in a bad mood, but I was annoyed because to me it didn't really seem like they were fighting about anything, but it seemed like they were acting like they were having a very special moment on Beverly Hills 90210. Forgive my reference, I'm old and I don't know what the kids watch these days. Also, I've always felt like Tom is much more into Ariana than she is into him, but this season, I feel like Ariana might be more into the entire female cast than she is into Tom. I know couples have their own rules, but Tom is nice to be okay with her making out with other women. I know if my bf wanted to make out with all his male friends, I would not be laughing about it.

    S07.E16: I Don't Like the Sound of Your Voice

    Oh yeah for sure. Me side-eyeing Beau doesn't mean I think Jax or Tom or any of the guys are better. I think that Beau would be at the top of my list. But just because I think he's better than the other guys on the show doesn't mean I think he's great overall.

    S07.E17: FOMO in Mexico

    Was Beau being authentic or was he actually crying? It came off like bad acting but maybe that's his personality.

    S07.E17: FOMO in Mexico

    I tend to side more with Stassi. She shouldn't have to do things she doesn't want to do like go dance up on stage. That's not a compromise issue. A compromise issue would be going out at all versus staying in. Beau shouldn't care whether Stassi gets up on a stage to dance in front of people. Regardless, the staying out thing I think is valid and a huge compatibility issue. I would be fundamentally incompatible with someone who wants to party until 3 am every night, let alone 5 am. That said, Stassi does seem to party a lot so I think she and Beau can work this out. 3 am v. 5 am isn't a huge deal I think. Of course if they were to have kids and Beau wants to continue that lifestyle, then it is a problem. Oh and wtf, Beau gets teary-eyed and says he is battered?!?! I sense he is sort of like Tom Schwartz in that he plays the perpetual victim role and everyone is like "aw how can you be mean to poor Beau?!" How do these people have the energy to do this kind of partying?! I'm their age and just watching them makes me want to take a nap and stay hydrated.
