  1. So with that statement and the 3 "contractors" on the show the most is it fair to say that they need the income more than Evan or Tony the Turk? Just an observation that aligns with my theory that Melissa, Dolores and Margaret are living in a house of cards. Every time I watch this show and see something that makes me mildly sick to my stomach, I get all pissed off that Andy Cohen is basically profiting off of the worst of women. But then again, I keep watching, so I suppose I'm part of the problem.
  2. To be fair though, Dolores is the cast member of the show, not Frank. We see Dolores' life, and Frank through that lens, not Frank's life. It is entirely possible that other women have been around - we just don't see or hear about them because they don't fit the narrative. Maybe. Other than knowing that Frank had a girlfriend her first season, and then they broke up which prompted him to move in with her in her second season, that's all we really know about Frank and his personal time. I think we are overthinking it. I think Dolores gets what she needs from David on a physical l
  3. I am not assuming that all of their money is her parents money. They went "away" 20+ years ago. One can fairly assume that Jackie and Evan have earned a significant amount of money. Didn't they say in a reunion that Jackie had more at the start of the relationship and then Evan was bringing it in? There is a lot of the finance world that is under high scrutiny at any point in time. That doesn't make everybody who works in finance and their spouses shady as fuck when we have seen nothing to support that.
  4. The hampton house is hers. You can find the rental listing on air bnb, somebody posted it last year. And it is entirely likely that the place has been occupied by long term renters. People were getting out of dodge last spring and summer and fleeing NYC and their suburban homes. With people working fully from home, camps closed, swim clubs closed, those who could left for the summer and went long term down the shore or out to the hamptons, lake george, etc because at that point NJ and NY and CT were in sync and didn't require testing/quarantine. Some went for weeks, some for months. It w
  5. Killing Alma was a mistake IMO. She was part of Mayday. She had a greater understanding of Gilead and how it works. She didn't blindly follow June and they were clearly leader 1 and leader 2 of the group. And quite frankly, given how much she knew over the course of the seasons, there was a lot more they could do with her. I'm also not a fan of Janine and am annoyed that she and June made it. This episode had too much torture and too many close-ups of Elisabeth Moss. Moss is amazing, I've always believed that. But that particular filming choice is losing it's impact, you can onl
  6. I don't know what to make of this episode. I kept watching it and thinking "huh." And now I'm at today and still thinking "huh." The location of the farm confuses me. Why were they taken from the Boston area all the way to the midwest. And in the aftermath of the season 2 finale, I find it hard to believe that the truck wouldn't have been searched more completely when it was stopped. So I don't believe for one moment they would have gotten that far. Perhaps they headed in that direction because heading towards the border would have been to obvious and too difficult, but geez. They
  7. You mean the OG with tacky style, 3-then-4 kids, with a good looking husband (Juicy wasn't bad looking in the beginning), parents right there to cook and pass on italian traditions to the kids, in a huge new construction house, with money to frivolously burn, who considers herself funny, warm and generous, and above all is proudly over the top in everything she does is feeling threatened by the newish housewife with tacky style, 5 kids, a good looking (and successful and well spoken) husband, with parents right there to cook and come together to share traditional turkish customs with the kids,
  8. After all we have seen does anybody believe for one second that Jackie ate in the car? What was with the snide comment about a huge mortgage and no furniture? That was bitchy. I am more and more convinced that Jackie, Marge and Melissa are supremely jealous of Jennifer. For all their talk about how she is rude, out of touch, etc, they are outright assholes to her. They hardly represent graciousness and thoughtfulness. I may be in the minority, but I thought Marge looked really pretty in the convo with her mom. I didn't like her yacht look.
  9. I think Marge is naive to think her ex won't care. Just because they haven't been married in a long time doesn't mean it won't matter. How many affairs did she have? And what about those kids she is trying to mend her relationships with? Will they not care either? If you are going to write about it, let the injured party know beforehand. Even Jackie said that in hindsight she should have given Jennifer a heads up about her spoiled children article. And that didn't come close to being an issue like infidelity. I guess fame and money always win out.
  10. I haven't watched the episode yet, but forgive me of my ignorance: Is "housekeeper" no longer an acceptable term? What the heck is in it's place? Primary domicile domestic manager? I'd think that housekeeper would be more acceptable than cleaning lady or maid or "the help."
  11. Run, Tre, Run. Between the road rage incident and this, go far away.
  12. I actually wonder if it's because Nonna's passing was not expected. Nonno was always the one with the health problems, we saw it throughout the years. Remember Juicy saying that one of these times he wasn't going to come out of the hospital? They knew they had limited time with him and honestly probably got more years with him than they ever anticipated. But Nonna was the healthy one. The stronger one. She was supposed to be around longer. And quite frankly, even when she went into the hospital, they probably expected her to come home. So there's an added trauma there of watching
  13. I was reading that Jackie said that once the fight was done, that she was so relieved that she was drinking and all lovey dovey to Tre because it was such a relief. She said it didn't all make it to camera. You know what else didn't make it to camera? All the stuff she said in interviews that she and Evan went through post rumor, deciding to stay on the show or not, etc. She said in interviews early on that she was really proud of the process they went through, how they handled it, and came to a decision together and we would see it all. We didn't see a thing. Andy is not going to waste c
  14. What a boring episode. I think the reason this season is so dull and manufactured is because there was nothing dramatic happening coming out of covid lockdown. Even the Marge/Jennifer fighting feels overdone. The only emotionally legitimate moment of this episode was seeing Milania comforting Audriana.
  15. Honestly, I think that they make these comments because after both parents are gone, it is an incredibly lonely feeling. It doesn't matter who is around you, if you are married or divorced, surrounded by kids or no kids, even if there are cousins, aunts and uncles near by. It is lonely. And the sibling(s) can best help recreate the feeling of that specific family unit. At least in my experience. But it can go other ways. Joe probably feels the same way about Melissa and quite honestly if Tre and Juicy had made it as a couple, she would be saying it to him as well. Basically
  16. Yeah, I don't get the attack on Jen for Bill's success and their subsequent lifestyle. Melissa didn't work for years and screeched about a gold rolex, teresa didn't work for years, jackie isn't exactly churning out the columns these days, and we watched 2 seasons of divorced Dolores letting Frank pay her way. At least Bill is legit as far as we know. He can explain what he does beyond "working!" or "business!", nobody has gone to jail, been disbarred, etc. Jennifer gives plenty of reasons to dislike her if you are looking for them. Being the wife of a successful plastic surgeon
  17. Right. You definitely don't eat it for your health.
  18. So I remember it being that allegedly Evan has a girlfriend, and that it's not the first time he has heard it and that his house always has women talking. It was never clear if he heard it before or after. His expression and delivery was also...something. Frank said he didnt believe it, said let's take a vote, all said no way except Joe B who hemmed and hawed and said he was 99% sure it never happened. So the reframing of the night doesn't quite fit the actuality. Or at least not how I remembered it? Edit: Just remembered I have the episode recorded on sling, I am going back
  19. OMG the taylor ham was the highlight of the episode. And yes, it's Taylor ham. The people who call it pork roll just don't know what they are doing and are super confused in life. 😘🤪😇 Taylor ham, egg and cheese is probably the most popular of the taylor ham breakfast sandwich out there, however I highly recommend trying taylor ham and swiss on a bagel. It is life changing. It's much closer to bacon than breakfast sausage from a flavor standpoint. Maybe a cross between bacon and canadian bacon? But better! I don't know what to make of this Evan and Jackie thing. She is a w
  20. You mean something like "first you went to jail now, you are reduced to waving dildos around and cursing at everybody, your poor dead parents must be so ashamed." Or "I am so glad your parents, god bless them, aren't here to see what you've become.: Or "i feel so bad for you, everybody you love leaves you - Joe is in Italy and moved on immediately, your parents are both dead, Joe and Melissa only care because of the cameras, and for the sake of the kids. Oh, your girls? Give it time, people usually go to therapy in their 20s to deal with the shit their parents put them through.
  21. Right. Although I am not sure his delivery of the "i've heard it before" statement makes sense in the context of hearing it being discussed after the fact. That is the spin Margaret tried to give it but honestly, it feels a little weak. That said, while I still think her face is confusing to look at, Margaret is awesome right now. She is calling it all out.
  22. I grew up in suburban nj and kids started hitting the nyc club scene (limelight, palladium, etc.) as young as 14/15. Most just lied about where they were going, came up with a reason to stay out late, etc. If it was easy to access here, imagine if you were a child star in the 90s in Hollywood. I had no idea that the angst of the 90s was so universal, it felt so isolating at the time. But if you think about it, it was everywhere. In our music, in our clothing, etc. We were literally wrapped up in angst. I didn't put that together until watching this. I am not sure if I am to
  23. From your mouth to the feds ears. Just saying. I have been skeptical of that since day one. I remember there was a reunion where somebody asked Melissa what Joe actually did for work. She couldn't answer. She stumbled around saying he was very successful. I can say flat out what my hunny does. So can everybody I know. Jackie can say Evan is in finance. Jennifer can say Dr. Aydin. Dolores can point out former lawyer and now a house flipper. Marge can say contractor. Melissa? Where there is smoke...that is all. Speaking of Dr. Aydin, you would be surprised what plast
