    S09.E18: Pardon Our French

    Classic anorexia behaviour.

    S09.E18: Pardon Our French

    Rinna can broadcast her daughter’s anorexia issues yet is incredibly silent about “the elephant in the room” and even the “rabbit in the room” which is her own eating disorder. Rinna was suddenly silent about the issue when Kyle was confessing her story. I fluctuate between being really cranky about Rinna’s silence (laying low to her shameful secrets) and being understanding about her shame/body image/dietary restrictions in the Hollywood environment.

    S09.E17: A Double Shot Of Brandi

    Teddy is looking much more tidy and ‘glossy’ these days... methinks she is trying to fit in and look ‘camera ready’ these days!

    Old school pic of the tv... I just had to because I couldn’t stop laughing at the clown mouth makeup!

    Rinna is playing dumb about why her daughter has/had anorexia. It’s obvious that whole family has issues around food. That backyard bbq was so weird.... they cleared the plates which were still full of food! Rinna nibbled only one bit of that sweet corn cob. Even Harry’s plate was full. Maybe they were just pretend bbqing for the camera? It seemed so forced and tense.

    I know why they chose that villa..... washable surfaces.

    Re Harry Dubin.... no one is kissing that gnome Harry. They are kissing what they could potentially get from him: connections, gifts, wifedome, infamy, a notch on their belt, whatever! No one is kissing Harry!

    I know what you mean about the sex kitten versus wanting to be a wife. You know those people who are stuck in the groove of the hairdo or wardrobe from their heyday ? Sonja being a sex kitten was her heyday and it got her ol’ man Morgan.... so it’s what she knows. Sadly it’s not going to work anymore now she’s less kitten and more the ol’ cat that has hair that’s a bit scruffy and bandy legs who can’t jump up onto the mantelpiece and knock stuff off anymore (oh, that’s our cat... but you know what I mean!) Dorinda (?) mentioned Sonja putting a brave face on her life in this episode, so I think her sexy persona, to some extent, is covering up her desire for a marriage. Actually, a lot of her sexiness and most flirtatious is conveyed to the men who are younger and/or unavailable (the cute bar man/wait staff etc) and it’s the older/wealthier marriageable and possibly attainable men that she socialises with that she drops those marriage hints to. I’m trying to recall what she was saying and to whom....in the bar when Mar-E-Oh brought stuff to Ramona...?

    I couldn’t agree with you more. I’m feeling really quite sad about Sonja. I don’t think she is on pills, as Luann accuses her of. ( I choose the word ‘accuse’ deliberately because it’s a judgement made without any love or concern). It could be that Sonja is on prescribed meds, like antidepressants, which do not mix well with alcohol. Who knows. There is an underlying sadness with a healthy dose of desperation that is showing through Sonja’s usual joie de vivre this season. What Sonja wants the most...a husband... is not on her horizon at all, hence her unhappiness about all the Toms and Harrys that are tapping but not proposing.

    Sonja wasn’t visiting Luanne during her rehearsal.... Sonja was auditioning...as hard as she could!

    Tessa’s ‘dream dress’ was a nightmare! On what planet would anyone have dreamed they wanted to wear that monstrosity?

    S11.E12: Luann Land

    I wonder whether RHoNY gives us more gratification than the other franchises because we get to observe women having legitimate arguments and conflict that get aired and addressed and (usually) resolved? We all live with relationships that have tensions and conflict but often without a safe avenue for bringing up the tensions for discussion. I know I have relationships where I worry about damaging the relationship because the other person isn’t able to deal with the (legitimate) grievances I have. These NY women are real and raw and let it all out.... and I love it! I also appreciate that they have real and organic conflict with each other unlike the fake and scripted (IMO) ’drahma’ of Bev Hills, for example.

    S17.E10: What Do You Care About?

    I loved that Garo chose the dwindling bee population issue and so wish he had created a better dress/outfit 😞 I keep thinking about what might have been a great ‘bee design’. Something advant garde that looked a bit like pollen? Or a design that celebrated the hexagonal shape of honeycomb? (Could possibly have used a different colour then and not been so literal with yellow). I just went looking for inspiration and ideas of what Garo could have designed after I wrote this ^^^ and I found Sarah Burton’s designs for Alexander McQueen which are ALL about bees: Pic of one, link to a webpage with lots more designs... https://www.vogue.com/fashion-shows/spring-2013-ready-to-wear/alexander-mcqueen

    Lu said she had painted that kitchen bedroom...that it had been white, so she has been renovating.... and keeping all the kitchen appliances! Why???? That needs to be a question for the reunion!
