Woo! what a ride. I binged watched all 3 seasons... and can now stop lurking on this page...Agree with others that this show is just the type of petty, fluffy bullshit we all need right now. Completely mindless entertainment...
Mary - so far she's my favourite. Yea, she's got shit taste in men but she genuinely seems to be good at her job and is a good friend. Romain is an immature 25 y o man but he does seem to love her and to me, he's not hot enough to put up with his petulance and he also seems a bit dull. While his Davina hate is justified and entertaining, he comes off looking silly when he goes on his rants about her. She really got to him and just blanking her and rising above it would've been a better look.
Chrishell -- I do think she was blindsided and as others have said I do not think she was that good of an actress. I admire her hustle and liked that she tried to do something charitable when selling these obscenely overpriced homes. Re her divorce and Justin's filing: unless you're running away from an abusive situation (a la Katie Holmes) what Justin did was shitty af. Via a phone call 45 minutes before the world knew? Via text???? that's stone cold. If i was the new girlfriend, I would watch my back... that's bordering on sociopathic.
Maya -- the best thing about Maya is she manages to be the ultimate shit stirrer but also super diplomatic. The skill in which she can stir the pot and yet remain inoffensive is quite stunning, really. I mostly like her for that reason because it shows she has some savvy and brains that the other ladies don't have.
Amanza -- Stop being late. Just stop it. In most professions, punctuality is a must, but especially where you're in the business of selling multimillion dollar houses to your clients. You can't expect people to part with millions when you waltz in a half hour late and make jokes about drying your hair out your car window. Not okay and not cute. That said, she does seem like a good friend. I don't know how much stagers and interior designers make but I almost feel like that maybe she should stick to that kind of work ... she seems to enjoy it...
Heather -- huge side eye to her coded overreaction to Amanza in season 2 which frankly struck me as a microagression against the lone POC in the cast. Amanza is the "rudest" person she's ever met? She's so "aggressive"? She's "evil"? Bitch, you're best friend is fucking Christine! I saw nothing that Amanza did that was as bad as the shit Christine (and also Davina) pulled. Please. She should of just called her an Angry Black Lady and be done with it. So glad you finally you approve of Amanza. Also also, I enjoyed her getting so upset about Davina and Christine calling out her thirsty ass.
Christine -- this trick. You're not honest, you're just an asshole. I do not find her beautiful at all. She's interesting to look at because she's so over the top. She's like a cross between a Russian hooker, a basic blow up doll and an anime character. As another poster said (sorry forgetting who) she is not as smart as she thinks she is and her game is tired. She attacks and humiliates someone and then the next day blames it on the drink and apologizes and then gets pissed when people don't automatically trust her again. Rinse, repeat. I thought Chrishell declining to go to her engagement party was fair and understandable but she's (Christine) is a typical narcissist so anything but full on butt kissing is not ok. I actually prefer watching Christine work because she does seem to know what she's doing and in that setting I think she shines. But most of the time I can't stand her. I kinda hope her husband is a jerk too (for his own sake) otherwise he's going to be bled dry both emotionally and financially and he seems like a nice guy. I did enjoy her wedding and while it is not my aesthetic in the least, i liked her dress (the veil was dumb however) and the snow.
Also...I was disappointed that her and Karamo seemed to be buds because ... yea I thought he would have better taste than that.
The bobbsey twins. Two dudes with small man syndrome who think being surrounded by glamazons make them attractive when really it makes them look pathetic and weird. Interesting they split up, wonder what went down there?
Now ... ahem ... Davina. WTAF? Is it really the time to force the "2 sides issue" and why do you care so much? Even if you think Chrishell 100% is at fault, why tell her when she's obviously hurting and in pain? Talk about "evil" behaviour Heather. What a complete bitch. Even Jason looked disgusted at her and even "no conflict" Mary went off. I felt for Chrishell. She was an open wound and basically Davina threw salt water all over her. It's interesting we don't see or hear much about Davina's personal life. I wonder if it is because she doesn't have one outside the office or if she keeps it private just to make sure no one does to her what she constantly does to others. It was odd she kept pushing the "2 sides" bit so hard. Maybe desperation to stay on the show but like others have said, she's not an entertaining villain like Christine. She's just... bad... I wouldn't miss her.
And also, Adnan is a creepy bully - wouldn't surprise me if his millions are earned via shady means. He's the type of guy who you need to be able to stand up to him (similar to what Christine did) ... Davina comes across as a nervous little nitwit and he rolls all over her. His house is UGLY and is in no way worth that much money ... what on earth would someone be paying for? A pool and a guesthouse? A/C? Plus it looks like it was decorated by a unicorn high on meth. No thanks.
I wish there was more emphasis on the real estate and the actual selling like in season 1. I do find it interesting as the whole LA luxury real estate market is so so so far removed from my world and I am comforted to know that even if I did have that kind of money, I wouldn't want to live in 99% of the houses they show. Big blah glass boxes is the truth.
