    S01.E10: The Full Nelson

    I don't understand why people that have the money to throw a party at their house for 400 people don't have enough to pay a gardener to clean up the yard. That guy talking to Brandi at the party seemed like he was hitting on her.

    S01.E09: Killing Time In Austin

    I see the situation through a different lens. Brandi brought up the poop story on the bus (way to mend fences and develop friendships) which blind-sighted Leeanne and caused issues between Marie and Leeanne. This is a mean girl tactic to me. If the beef between Brandi and Leeanne had been squashed at this point in time, why bring up a negative to cause Leeanne to go on the defensive? Leeanne told 3 people about her situation and somehow the women that don't like her knew about it. Yeah, she could have laughed it off, but it would have been easier to do in a group of supportive women versus a group of women that really don't like her. I credit her for going out by the pool to get away from the group. A well adjusted person would have had the conversation with Marie at poolside then let it go. Leeanne needs to seek help for how she handles slights and digs. She is too old to act like a teenage girl. Plus, it looks bad when you are trying to come up in high society. She won't be in high society because she was not born to it, but she is messing with her status as a fringe player by acting like a fool. Nonetheless, she had a reason to be pissed that her confidence was breached and that the people that don't like her had the information. Marie and Leeanne are friends and friends fight. I think close friends are like married folk in that they have their own language. I just don't raise an eyebrow when I hear errant words passed between folks, because different things are allowed in different relationships. Now, that does not mean that I won't call the cops when I hear or see something that is upsetting to me. I called the cops when I heard a couple arguing because the tone and language seemed to escalate and she sounded scared. On another occasion, I called the cops when I overheard hitting. In this instance, I did not hear anything that made me want to call the cops on Leeanne. Maybe the full audio would make me feel differently, but I think Marie and Leeanne were having a fight over betrayal and disrespect. Leeanne got heated and said things she should not have said. Marie was upset that the fight went to a level that it never went before. They made up. For the other women to continuously harp on Leeanne as if they really had some concerns about Marie was bullshit IMO. I felt that it was all about ganging up on Leeanne not true concern for Marie. Did they go see what was going on and comfort Marie after they heard the exchange between her and Leeanne? I suspect they turned over and went back to sleep. Stephanie and Brandi, as hosts, contributed to the negative air by continuing to make Leeanne's accident the topic of discussion after they arrived at the house. If its no big deal, why would you continue talking about it? This is the subtle mean girl stuff I am talking about.

    If Leeanne does not like how she reacts to people, then she needs to seek help for her problems. I understand why she was mad at Marie, but the escalation should not have happened. Apparently, she thinks her circumstances are unique. I don't get Brandi, Cary and Stephanie. If Tiffany and Marie want to be friends with Leeanne, thats their choice. If they want to give her grace, that is their prerogative. Why keep mess going when it really does not involve you? I don't care for the mean girl bullshit that Brandi, Stephanie and Cary bring to the table. Brandi enabled Leeanne's behavior by appearing to let it go, then bringing it up at dinner with Tiffany. If Stephanie and Brandi felt some kind of way, then they should have talked it out at the house then asked Leeanne to leave instead talking about her behind her back. The passive aggressive shit they pull is just as bad as Leeanne's flashes of aggression over minor offenses.

    IMHO, she did not owe Brandi an apology. Brandi started all of it by mocking Leeanne's obsession with charities. It wasn't Brandi's business. No one is telling Brandi about her stringy hair, baby talk, bad makeup application, and drinking wine 16 hours a day. Brandi wore the poop hat to screw with Leeanne and get laughs from Stephanie and Cary. Should Leeanne apologize for reacting poorly to Brandi's attack? She can, but I don't think its required. Cary was prettier before botox and whatever else she did to her face. Maybe this is why she is so bitter.

    Brooks from Orange County said that he had cancer. People lie all of the time on these shows. None of them have any shame, but plenty of gall. With that said, I will give Brandi the benefit of the doubt. It just struck me as odd that she was so unemotional and grown up acting.

    $1.5M does not seem like a lot for a plastic surgeon. Surely his house and practice are worth way more than $1.5M. Of course, he may be setting fire to the money buying high-end designer clothes for Cary........ Yes. I think the dark atmosphere and everyone dressed up did not really pair well with the food that was served. I wondered if something really happened to Brandi's brother. She has been on the verge of tears talking about her woes with Brian, but she barely clouded up when she was talking with Brian about her brother. Maybe I missed the scene showing Brandi emotionally distraught after hearing about her brother. It also does not make sense that she is not with her brother. Brian makes enough money to hire a nanny to travel with Brandi. I don't know. I expected Brandi to be more upset.

    I have always had it crunchy. I don't want my fritos going soggy in the chili. Frito pie seems so out in left field. Even society mavens eat brisket, ribs, and barbecue chicken around these parts. Dom goes well with barbecue.

    I chuckled at this as well. Then again, if Brandi Glanville can write one then I guess there would be enough people interested in reading Leeann's book. Cary entered the party awkwardly. I don't know if she was already nervous given that she had to know that Heidi was friends with Mark's ex wife. She should have greeted her host, not wait for Leeann to greet her and make her comfortable. Leeann did not invite Cary to the party, Heidi did. Then, she compounded her rudeness by talking about the food. She could have a) not eat or b) just have the chili without the fritos and cheese. I think Tiffany may be right about Cary. Cary's sarcasm is a defense mechanism. She puts stuff down so that it does not matter if she is not accepted. I think she was talking about the frito pie because Mark would not want her to have any of it because it may bloat her stomach .25 of an inch for half an hour. What would happen to her marriage if she cannot fit those designer clothes that Mark keeps buying for her, especially when he has already demonstrated that he will move on and buy them for someone else to model........ LOL, that may disqualify her in Dallas, but she would be well known in Houston if she can make blue ribbon worthy chili. Her pecan pie looked good, full of big pecans with a nice crust. Yum.

    Heidi is a boring asshole. She needs to catch a few more episodes of RHOBH if she wants to know how to play the role of a compelling rich bitch. I laughed when Cary tried to say that being married 3 times is better than being single. Okay Cary. Oh and Cary, drinking a bottle of wine nightly is worse than eating the occasional frito pie. I am going to have to side with Leeanne regarding Tiffany's hair. What in the hell was Tiffany thinking with that big bouffant on top of her head? It was just so big.

    I wish I was watching GCB. I was one of the 5 people actually watching that show when it was on briefly. I enjoyed the heck out of it.

    I feel the same way. Bryan is a developer and a founding partner in his business. He travels a lot because his business deals with the development of marinas. His job is pays very well, but it is very stressful.

    I was thinking the same thing. Unlike LeeAnn, I would rather God not concern himself with my idiotic texts and focus his attention on the presidential election or people being displaced due to the storms we keep having. I think Tiffany needed to be present because she was the one receiving the texts from Marie. Good grief LeeAnne handled that badly. She had the upper hand going in and she totally lost it with her fruitcake behavior. Either she is playing this role too hard or she is really nuts. Damn. I felt the heat through the TV screen. Brandi needs to redirect her hate from LeeAnne and focus it on Brian. Marie appears to live a luxurious lifestyle, but she could not afford to send her 10 year-old to dance class?
  13. LOL, I meant that no one on the show has called Brandi out on her hair tossing, wine drinking, baby talk......yet. I think the show has gotten progressively better now that we have moved on from charity and feces.
  14. I have empathy for LeeAnne and I can look past her crazy somewhat because I recall that Brandi came for LeeAnne first. LeeAnne was minding her own business acting like she was of the manor born and Brandi decided to mimic her behind her back and the other women were cackling about it. If she did not like how LeeAnne was acting, she should have either said something directly to LeeAnne or minded her own business. If LeeAnne wants to go ape over the charity game, then thats her thing. If she wants to contribute to charity so she can raise her profile, then who is she hurting exactly? Most folks that contribute to charity are doing it to raise their profile. These parties give them an opportunity to showcase their philanthropy and hob nob with folks like themselves. No one is saying anything to Brandi about using her time as a DCC as her social cred. No one is telling her that she needs to get a hair cut, stop drinking so much and stop talking like a baby. I have empathy for Brandi too because she does not realize that she is grown ass woman with a brain and the world is at her fingertips if she chooses to grab it instead of drowning her misery in a wine bottle. She and LeeAnne need a therapist, stat. I think all of these women are guilty of acting like high school girls and disrespecting each others facades.
  15. This is what I did not like about him picking out her clothes. It was like he was creating the image that he wanted to see and that bothered me. He seems to be obsessive about it. Of course, she is too so there is that. Pink and purple shadows are not for them. Tiffany was not a friend to LeeAnne for sure. Friends don't just stand around letting other folks say nasty things about their friend without defending that person or simply excusing themselves. Tiffany can be friends with the other women and tell them not to say anything to her about LeeAnne. If you have been friends for someone 30 years, you learn to look over the crap and focus on the good stuff. I wonder if that scene was a reenactment. He was flat emotionally, but he greeted everyone and awkwardly hugged his brother law as if he was just going through the motions. He was not surprised at all meeting Brandi's grandfather which tells me they had already met.
