    Kathryn Dennis: On Her Own!

    True but that could be any number of things. I have had tons of children with unexplained speech/language disorders. Some kids are just delayed. It puts a negative stigma on kids with delays because parents then feel like everyone is judging them and it is their fault when that isn’t always the case. In my 15 years, I’ve had more kids with unexplained disorders (or disorders through no fault of the parents) than I have had FAS kids. Some kids are just delayed. It doesn’t always have to be FAS.
  2. It is very easy to get a POA when both parties agree. I have had one for my husband off and on for over 10 years. He travels a lot for work and so I need one to take care of anything that isn’t in my name. I’ve bought and sold cars, sold a house, etc with POAs. You don’t have to be declared incompetent to have a POA. They are actually extremely common in certain circles (people taking care of aging parents, military, etc).

    If you look at the picture of Kathryn at her brother’s wedding, Saint looks exactly like her brother. I have a child that I currently see (I’m a speech therapist) that has FAS facial features but nope, he looks exactly like his dad. That’s why we can’t go just off of facial features alone when diagnosing children. We have to follow DSM-V criteria (and with some disorders, diagnostic testing).

    Below Deck in the Media

    There was a novel (White Squall) about this that was later turned into a movie starring Scott Wolf and Jeff Bridges. It was based on a true story of a boat named the Albatross that went down in 1961. It was really interesting.

    S11.E01: Divided, They Summer

    Enh, I’m of a split mind. It doesn’t really bother me considering that B and Dennis were together in some sort of fashion for awhile. My daughter (7 years old) will text me on my husband’s phone when they go out. She frequently texts with my parents, especially when we lived in Dubai. To me, it is the same as writing a letter or email. I feel like the Brynn mentions are growing more frequent. I just don’t feel like she was mentioned that much when B came back in season seven. It has really been last season and the previous one where she was mentioned a lot. It was just more random mentions that were few and far between before that.

    Memory Lane: Seasons 1-5

    Ugh, Morocco just pisses me off. To me, it is where Lu really shows that she is a poser. If she had spent any time previously in Middle East/North Africa, she never was around locals. She completely misuses habibi throughout (and her pronunciation is awful too).
  7. OMG! SO accurate! No but considering how Carole uses her social media, it is surprising. She would immediately tweet after anything happened that she could use to gain attention. Maybe stepping back from RHONY has been good for her.
  8. Nothing posted on Carole’s twitter or Insta yet.  Which surprises me considering she would allude to them keeping in touch, having dinner together, etc.  I had figured she would make some sort of statement.Â

    Kathryn Dennis: On Her Own!

    I work with special needs children (speech therapist). My issue with the statement was more the assumption that Kathryn must have done something for her children to (possibly) have special needs. Sometimes crap happens. Good people have children with a variety of medical issues and/or developmental delays through no fault of their own. These parents already feel enough shame and responsibility for their kid’s issues without some rando judging them. And people also forget that they are dissecting, judging, and talking about a sweet and innocent child. Sorry, this is one of my pet peeves. Right up there with people telling their kids not to stare at someone who is obviously different. Don’t stare and don’t ignore them. Go up and say “Hello.”

    Bethenny Frankel: Skinny Girl

    Let me tell ya, it isn’t just chefs. I have no food allergies but I am allergic to three different prescription drugs (Includijg amoxicillin) and adhesives. When I had my youngest, the doctor had written a script for me to get antibiotics for a week (I had a horrid sinus infection) which turned out to be amoxicillin. They also had adhesive bandages put over two IV lines, the epidural, and going across the c-section incision. I was covered in hives for three weeks and my O2 in the hospital never even got into the 90’s (of which they never investigated why or discussed putting me on supplemental oxygen). And this was in the healthcare system! Allergies just aren’t taken seriously by anybody which is frustrating.

    S06.E12: Check Yourself!

    So, yes, the triple talaq is still legal in Qatar but who knows for how long. Several countries have banned the practice including India and the UAE. The important thing to remember is that the country follows Sharia law which lays a lot of this out. This also applies only to Muslim marriages. As as far as the Emir’s divorce from Noora, things are a bit sketchy with that. She had another child by him in 2018 so they are still married. I hadn’t heard anything about the situation which wouldn’t be extremely surprising considering the control over the media. However, I still have several friends in Qatar (I used to live there) and that gossip would have normally made its way around.

    None of that proves anything. All About The Tea is hardly a legit source. Hell, they posted all sorts of crazy ramblings from Caroline Bedol. The source was probably T Rav and his friends as a way of hurting the custody case. The important thing is that she is clean and sober now—unlike Thomas.

    There are a million reasons why a child might not reach developmental milestones in a timely fashion. I have never seen the evidence—just TRav alluding to it.
