  1. B wanting to spend time with Carol's boy toy still makes much more sense than him being the first person she thought of when she needed a photographer. But I say that as someone who is too lazy to google his photography background. Also don't think Beth is physically attracted to Dennis.

    Ha! I ended up losing interest after they killed Sean Bean and never really got back into it. Probably for the best. =P

    Because gratuitous sex and/or rape scenes don't manifest themselves into existence. They're usually built to cater to someone in power behind the scenes personal sensibilities. Actresses have spoken on this reality, and that's immediately what my mind drifted to as I was watching. The scene just felt out of place to me. *shrug* The dynamics between Nick and Eden were portrayed in a way that more than conveyed what the reality of their sex life would be. It couldn't have been made any clearer, especially once they brought out the sheet with a hole in it. Plus, we already saw how he was with June that first time..,

    Ehhh. The scene between Nick and Eden didn't make me feel uncomfortable in anything close to a meaningful way. It made me roll my eyes and wonder which perv behind the scenes was exploiting what started out as a thoughtfully executed show. Continuing the scene after Nick climbed into bed added nothing (in my opinion).

    We'll have to agree to disagree. The 'ceremony' scenes were absolutely relevant to the story being told, but the scene with Nick and Eden and even the sex scene between June and Nick during June's escape felt completely unnecessary.

    60 seconds straight of a man thrusting into an actress portraying a child isn't 'we saw nothing'.

    I hate that the scene was even included and it made me question whether I wanted to continue watching the show. The way the episode ended pulled me right back in... but I wont last much longer of they keep using the show as a vehicle to push gratuitous sex scenes onto actresses/viewers.

    The Chefs/Cheftestants of Top Chef

    I never in a million years would have imagined Richard ending up where he is now ... wearing the clothes he's wearing now.... *confused face* He's doing really well and I like him ... it's just not at all what I expected.

    Ehh.... Fabio's wife is shockingly ugly/unattractive and both of their instagram accounts give me hardcore secondhand embarrassment. Did anyone else catch Fabio's assertion that Trump 'has done more for african-americans than any other president'? I don't understand why he thinks Instagram is the platform for things like that when people likely only follow him for pictures of food/selfies. It actually occurred to me that he might be trolling for attention to help promote that doppelganger crap he's been pushing.
  10. Bethenny is still working to earn her payouts from the Skinnygirl sale. She and her business partner David Kanbar appear to have received $39M upfront for the sale of SkinnyGirl, but the rest is only paid out in increments if Skinnygirl meets certain sales goals each year. Skinnygirl cocktail sales fell 26% in 2013 and Jim Beam was counting on exposure from Bethenny's talk show to turn things around. Once B's talk show was cancelled, returning to RHONY became one of the few ways she could promote the brand and hopefully use that exposure to boost sales back up enough to ensure her payouts continued. If you take Bethenny's lifestyle and cost of living into consideration... plus taxes, legal/divorce expenses, the fact that she had/has to split proceeds from the sale of her business with her business partner and managers ... I'd say she needs the show almost as much as the other women do if she wants to maintain what she has now.
