    Morning Joe: All Episodes Talk

    Thanks to those of you who watch the show so I don't have to. I'm having to ration my television media diet strictly, But oh the irony of Mika not liking Kate's SNL opening at the piano because she thinks SNL should be funny First of all Mika has no sense of humor and has no clue to what funny is. Secondly, she is to stupid and oblivious to pop culture and a host of other things to understand most of the shows references, characters and jokes. And even though she is of the generation that could remember the early days of SNL. I doubt seriously that she knows who John Belushi or Gilda Radner were. And of course she's never heard of Leonard Cohen or heard Hallelujah performed by anyone.

    S01.E07: Trompe L'Oeil

    I think Teresa will be back as a host. Why cast that actress for such a brief time? She could be the one who persuades them to rehire Bernard. I think Bernard was a real person once( why hire a name actress to play his ex-wife for only a scene?). Probably nobody who comes to Westworld gets out alive. Ford replaces them all eventually. I think it will be revealed there is another person(s) in the Ford/Arnold photo. Don't find Delores and William interesting. Thandie is great but the Maeve storyline of the guys doing what she tells them to do seems implausible.

    Bethenny Frankel: Skinny Girl

    I remember Bethy's fake laugh from her show. It wasn't any more believable than her fake crying. The only emotion she consistently and believably expresses is anger/rage. Bethy has money, she always has, even when she was "broke" or "homeless". She'd probably be wise to squirrel some of current paychecks into savings as the Skinnygirl/ Housewives gravy train isn't going to last forever or probably even another 10 years. i'm sure Bernadette was a doozy of a mother and of course Beth isn't obligated to have a relationship with her mother. Some people are toxic and are best avoided. But as with Jason and her in laws Beth has a public platform they do not have specifically a tv show and a radio show to talk about them. Bernadette has talked to the press and she has a right to defend herself against her daughter's accusations. But Beth has been shaping this narrative for years now, using the various outlets she has access to that her mother doesn't. Boohoo big meanies on the Internet say mean things about Bethy. That's never happened to a celebrity before. Oh, the humanity! The big blue meanies must be stopped! Fan girls go to your battle stations! Madame Curie er uhm Bethy needs you to make the world safe for low calorie chocolates.

    Bethenny Frankel: Skinny Girl

    Bethy famously said when she's done with someone she's done. I think that is part of her rage at Jason and his parents. They've served their purpose as far as she's concerned, sperm donor and co-stars on her canceled show, they need to fade away now. She has new co-stars, Kevin the driver, the new Julie assistant, Carole., etc

    Bethenny Frankel: Skinny Girl

    Bethenny has posted at least one photo on social media of Bryn, it's a photo of her doing yoga with Bethenny. That's tame compared to her more underhanded ways of exploiting her kid with the Daily Mail photo ops. There have been at least two maybe three of B using Bryn as a photo prop. There Beth is with her daughter sharing ices totally unaware of the cameras though B is shown gazing lovingly at said cameras (similar creepy camera love gazing was on display with her lover Dennis in the diamond as big as the Ritz photos ). She's not the only celebrity to do this. When you see a photo of aceleb and there kid or kids in a tabloid in a casual shot of them at the park playing or otherwise looking all warm and fuzzy it was more than likely prearranged by the celeb and the photographers/tabloid. The rag or the photographer gets a call telling them if they go to this spot at this time this person will be there with his or her kids. Photographers then take seemingly unposed photos that the celeb parent was unaware were being taken. Celeb gets good publicity mileage out of the photos showing them all cuddly with their kids but not blatantly posing with them which would of course be exploitive and wrong so they work around it to the benefit of all. Except the kids. Celebs often do this if they've had a bad patch of publicity or are going through a divorce and want public sympathy in their favor. Katie Holmes did this a great deal during her divorce from Tom Cruise. One sweet photo after another of Katie and Siri bonding, seemingly oblivious to the photogs trailing them. There was of course the disturbing pj photo in which she exploited Brynn without having her in the photo. She claimed it was at Brynn's insistence that she pulled the stunt to begin with. I believe B would have her daughter on the show if Jason would allow it and her public relations people don't discourage it. Maybe some of her rage against Jason is because he won't allow it. She really should have gone to a sperm clinic. She wouldn't have gotten her tv wedding but she'd have total control of her offspring. I thought her snarling about THEM during her fibroid dramatics was one of her lousier displays. She can't seem to accept that her daughter is part THEM, ok that's her father and her grandparents they share a gene pool. She's got some of Bernadette's genes to. She's not her motger's clone. I also think the thing she and Carole did at last years reunion where Carole claimed to have witnessed bad behavior on Jadon's part via the telephone was lousy. This was just a means for B to stick it to her daughter's father without getting her fingerprints on the knife. Who knows what will be going on in ten years. Maybe B and Jason will have made peace and are able to parent Brynn together and this will be all water under the bridge. As for what has the potential to be more distressing to Brynn stuff her mother says in the media and the show about Jason or comments from trolls and "haters". I don't think there's any real contest there. Stuff B says or said about her father will be more painful. The other stuff can be explained away by people getting to caught up in the pro wrestling/soap opera that is/was Real Housewives. There are of course unstable people on the Internet. There are also these things called trolls on the Internet and trolls love comment sections. As far as all the hate and emotion people on these shows can stir up that comes with the dinner. The casts of these shows do them voluntarily and are financially compensated. And no matter what humiliations are heaped upon them they seem to largely cling to staying onboard. Aviva, Kelly, Jill all want back on. Luann will swallow her pride to keep that apple and that paycheck. Ramona will continue to be productions dancing monkey. Unlike some of the others Bethenny doesn't need the paycheck but she needs the cameras on her. Not in my imo to sell skinny girl . I think Skinny Girl is her excuse for being on the show. She could live a quiet low key comfortable life raising her child but she has chosen otherwise.

    S08.E21: Reunion Part 1

    I'm skeptical that whatever place of yes that the whore/slut/skank/sex doll rant came from had much to do with what Lu put Carole through. And Luann was lousy to Carole and Carole has very legit reasons to dislike Luann. Bethenny's actions and motives are more ambiguous.

    S08.E21: Reunion Part 1

    I think as far as men go Bethy & Lu are both scraping the bottom of the barrel with their douchy, bald lovers. Human nature is full of pettiness, jealousy and envy. Ain't nobody above it or 100% free from it. Sometimes bitches be jealous, yeah it's that basic. Basic human nature and neither gender has a monopoly on it. It may not be the whole story but that doesn't mean it isn't present and a part of the rancor. Scolding ones peers from perceived lofty perches is pretty basic to.

    S08.E21: Reunion Part 1

    Bethenny is repulsive for dragging the daughter into this ratfuckery. And Dennis the Douche is even more repulsive for allowing his daughter to be brought into it. You're suppose to protect your daughter Douche Dad not the other way around. Why didn't you take the call you spineless lowlife? I wonder if Daddy and his monster offered to buy her an apartment or something? When dad is rich you bite the bullet and tolerate some of his slimier behavior sometimes. I can't believe the mother would be anything but distressed about her daughter getting emeshed in this crap but I can see her telling her daughter to follow the money and keep an eye on it. But in the Battle of the Bald Creeps Dennis has overtaken Tom for the lead. I can't manage any respect for Doris. Dumb, drunk and possibly drugged Doris. It must be awful to fear Bethy more than you love your man. Or care more about her goodwill than your own reputation. I wonder if Bethy spewed her bile at Doris's mother or her daughter Doris would grow a spine and tell Frankekstein to back that shit up? And how damn stale would that birthday cake be by December 26? i frankly(see what I did there) think some of Frankelstein's malice towards Luann is grounded in envy of Luann's looks and sex appeal. Say what you will about Luann, she's not very bright, not very deep and can be an asshole but she is at fifty a woman plenty of men would like to go to bed with. Not many of them may want to marry her but there's no line of men wanting to bed or marry Bethy. She is at best an average looking woman even with all the work and stylists and she has nothing else to recommend herself except her money. She's the sort of woman who scares men with her hysterics, her ear splitting shrieking and aggressive motor mouth. Luann and all the others for that matter are at a disadvantage in a verbal confrontation with Bethy not because she's so smart but because they can't get their voices to go as high and loud as Bethy can which is a gang of alley cats fucking on the shriek register. i also don't understand Bethy's obsession with that dumb etiquette book Luann put her name on. It was a book on etiquette not a treastice on ethics and morality. That Luann in private likes to let her hair down and be bawdy and likes to party is not being a hypocrite. Julia Child liked and ate McDonald's French fries that didn't disqualify her from writing about gourmet cuisine. The only people who don't have a public face and a private face are lunatics who go around shouting crazy shit and pissing in the street Oh wait. Sonya is an idiot an increasingly bitter idiot. The others seemed to be tuning her out to some degree? Could she be gone? She really hasn't much to do except pretend she remembers who Tom is. Her belief that she's in tight with Bethy now is just another one of her delusions. I thought Bethenny & Luann both looked ok though I thought Bethenny's outfit at the last reunion looked better than what she wore at this one. Still think Carole looked good. I love McQueen and I think she wore it well and her make up looked terrific. And next to Ramona and Bethenny her hair could only look swell.

    I think Carole looks good, dress, hair and make up. Those fake breasts don't do Ramona any more favors than those horrible extensions do. Doris looks crappy. Make up and hair to harsh and severe. Dress is tacky and does her no favors. She should have stuck with her vintage Pucci.

    S01.E08: The Call of the Wild

    Freddy was kind of like a cat wasn't he? A cat playing with a mouse? But in the end he did the right thing for whatever reason. Maybe he was innocent once to. I found the Chandra storyline believable. People do crazy self destructive things. She was in over her head in a high stress situation with someone's life on the line, emotions are running high, he's attractive and working her, she's vulnerable. I don't think she liked being a lawyer either. But she's probably got a boatload of student loans. Elaine May Jr taking off her high heels and walking out of the courtroom in her Tieks, priceless. I think she was relieved. I think a more downbeat ending would have been cynical and predictable. It was messy ending in some ways but life can be messy. That cat ain't going nowhere, he's made himself at home. The cat and Roberta Flack! Hand me a tissue damn it.

    S08.E18: Body Of Evidence

    If Dorinda is being even slightly critical of Bethenny publicly or seeming to show signs of any distancing of herself from Bethenny's backside I can only assume Bethenny made a complete ass/fool of herself at the reunion and in how she handled the Tom situation .

    S08.E18: Body Of Evidence

    I think Tom is skeevy, sleazy and sketchy as all feck. And I think he ain't got no money, honey. If he's really her soulmate and they have a lot in common it doesn't say much about Luann as a person. But at least Luann is good looking. And Sonja whoever from production is whispering in your ear(and feeding you your lines) that this is a good storyline for you isn't doing you any favors. Instead of playing the wounded bird you should be shouting "I never had sex with that guy! Even I haven't ever been that drunk!" That party was a party from hell! Who were those people? Carnies who were spending the winter in West Palm Beach? The guy who looked like Ben Stein in a fright wig had to be a thespian of some sort. And that pathetic stepped on depressing cake. I guess after renting the boat and hiring the extras production was running low on funds. They could have asked Doris's mom to make a perfectly nice sheet cake or had Adam make a nice raw vegan cake made from zucchini and sweetened with agave. What kind of friends text you at two in the morning(and you on your sickbed!)? The paid minion kind, the mischief makers in production kind, the tabloid connection types you cultivate kind. And then there's Ramona. I couldn't look away from her dancing though usually a display like that would fall under the heading of don't stare. She is a seriously weird person in every way, a complete and total freak. That's why she will always have a spot on this show. She doesn't have to have a storyline. All production has to do is unbuckle her monkey harness and let her loose. Dance! Dance!

    S08.E07: Airing Your Dirty Laundry

    Sonja got a good divorce settlement out of Old Man Morgan. She just pissed it away on legal fees and the lawsuit. Her kind of squirting. The only way I can believe that Sonja was clueless that she was walking into a confrontation with Bethenny is if production was bending over backwards to convince her otherwise. In an actual situation it would have been crappy for B to unload on Sonja in front of her worker bees but even if they had gone into the conference room there would have been an audience with the crew and it was being filmed. I didn't see any actual tears just someone doing the you're making me cry act when someone was holding their feet to the fire. I thought John showed restraint with productions dancing monkey Ramoma. I don't know how much all the players were in on what happened. Luann seemed to be truly rattled and her hightailing it seemed real not one of Dorinda's crying exits. I really don't know why John a man with a successful business would want to risk his reputation camera whoring on a show like this.
