    All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    What I didn't understand was, where was Charlie's mother through both his first trial and his second? He had his friends there supporting him, but where was she? I don't understand why she wasn't charged with anything. It seems obvious to me that Charlie did what he did (assuming he is even the one who shot his father) because his mother called him at school and asked him to come home. It seems to me that he was protecting her, and that she was using him.

    I agree with everything you have said, Though what LVP has brought with her is her narcissistic personality disorder. The traits of a person with such a disorder are: grandiose sense of self importance, lives in a fantasy world that supports their delusions of grandeur, needs constant praise and admiration, sense of entitlement, exploits others without guilt or shame, frequently demeans, intimidates, bullies or belittles others. IMO LVP has all of those traits, in spades. Which is why I do not enjoy her on the show and am glad she will no longer be on.

    I never said that Erika's note was unique. I pointed out that it was a handwritten note. Another poster then said that the note was basic. Yet another poster said that wasn't basic and that she was impressed that Erika took the time to send a handwritten note as no one does that these days. I agreed and said that not only was the note not basic, it was very sweet. My opinion. I am also one of the posters who said that I still have the cards sent by friends when each of my parents died, but don't remember all the people who called. I didn't once say that I didn't appreciate those calls, or the food and flowers dropped off, etc. I said at least twice that I appreciated any gesture made, in whatever form that person was comfortable with making it. Simple. As a poster above pointed out, and I agree with, Erika and LVP were work friends. Nothing more. Erika's gesture was totally appropriate IMO.

    Having lost both of my parents and having received numerous cards, when people took the time to hand write condolences similar to what Erika wrote I was very touched. But then again, I am not a narcissist and was actually appreciative when others reached out, in whatever manner was comfortable for them.

    Not only was Erika's note not basic, it was actually very sweet. (And to recap, it said "Dear Lisa - Tom and I were saddened to hear of your brother Mark's passing, Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time. Sincerest Condolences, Erika). It was actually more personal that buying a card and simply signing her name to it. LVP said she was upset that Erika didn't call. Not everyone is comfortable with calling (and I believe Erika said she was not, which would hardly be a surprise). When each of my parents died, I received phone calls and many cards. The cards I still have, whereas I could not tell you now who called. When my dad died there is one close friend who lives in another province that I did not hear from which surprised me a bit but I still knew that he loved my dad, and me. It wasn't until years later that I found out that he did call, I wasn't home, he left a message with my niece which she forgot to give me. In any case I was grateful for every condolence, no matter the form it took (or how long it took to receive it for that matter).

    I actually thought that Erika looked very pretty and natural at Kyle's luncheon, and agree that she looked very similar to the pic.

    I actually have enjoyed all of the cast this year, sans LVP. They remind me somewhat of the NY crew, who have their spats but generally get along and support each other. I hope Camille is not back next year, even as a 'friend of'. She was very tame at the first of the season, then the crazy came out. It is not entertaining to watch someone berate, apologize, berate, apologize, etc. Pick an lane, lady. It is too bad that she hadn't learned something about acting in the time she was with Kelsey. She is coming off like a really bad actor who is desperate for a part.

    There are many times that LVP has been rude, or hurtful. Her berating of Ericka because she sent a handwritten note when LVP's brother died? Tacky and classless. My biggest beef though (and why I am soooo glad she will not be on next year) is that IMO LVP is the original puppy dumper. She gave not one, but two puppies to people who she should have known more than anyone were not going to care for those dogs properly. These are two people who had to have multiple nannies for their small children. I have worked in an animal rescue for years, are we are fanatical about who we adopt our rescued animals to. And just because someone might be a friend does not mean they will be allowed to adopt. The animals' welfare comes first, always! I have no idea if LVP did this for publicity, or was hoping for a spin off featuring VP Dogs? In any case she did NOT put the welfare of those dogs first, and for that I will always consider her the original puppy dumper. Shame on her.

    S02.E05: Kill Me

    I actually loved this scene because I thought it was quite believable. While Renata is a brilliant business woman, we have seen her come unhinged several times when confronted with real life situations. I know a few business women who are extremely successful in business, but a mess where their own lives are concerned. And I watch enough true crime shows to know that this is often the case, where successful women make mind boggling stupid decisions in their personal lives. The fact that Renata is a self made woman, but her husband was able to bankrupt her is one. And really, why would Renata think that a magazine would feature her as a self made successful woman when it is known that she is going through bankruptcy, even if it was caused by her husband? Because she is Renata. I love Laura Dern in this role, and love MS as Mary Louise. Just because ML may look like a frumpy 60 something nothing, doesn't mean she isn't smarter and more cunning than any of these women. Age, looks and even education have nothing to do with how smart and cunning someone is.

    Hard to believe that a cop would go undercover to get close to Jane. But if that were plausible, what is not plausible is to also get close to Ziggy, and spending all this time with him. I can't imagine that it would ever be condoned to use a child like that to get to the mother. Not to mention, what undercover cop goes in and out of work, not in disguise and therefore not actually undercover? I think it is a red herring. Loved the scene where Renata thinks she is going to set Mary Louise straight, and ML totally takes over the conversation and direction of it. As improbable as some of these storylines are, I am still enjoying every minute of this show due to the superb acting.

    I agree with you regarding Abby. I think she is a user. Now she is 25, has been out of jail for 4 years, and is pregnant with a man that she is still with and met at work. Why are they moving in with her aunt? At this point she and her boyfriend should be taking care of themselves, not relying on yet another person to provide for her. She appears to have inherited more of her father's traits than her mother's.

    I thought Gordon said to Renata not to mention the party just before the meeting with the judge. So however they are paying for it, the judge doesn't know about the party. I noticed that the judge commented that Renata needed to hand over the watch, and then commented on the ring in the next sentence. When Renata took off the ring and put it on the table the watch was already there. Editing gremlins at work. I also think Corey is related to Perry, and possibly his half brother. It is obvious he is much more interested in Ziggy than Jane. I am loving this season. I don't care that they are all miserable. The acting is so superb, that I am loving every scene. Celeste's slap of Mary Louise was fabulous.

    Regarding the Catt Burglars (I know technically they were robbers and not burglars, but I couldn't resist) I honestly don't believe everything the kids said. When Abby entered to room to be interviewed, the same one where her father had written on the white board the banks that he had robbed in Oregon, she was not the least bit surprised. When the detective mentioned that she was looking at the board, she gave a drawn out "Yaaaaaaa". I think she was surprised that her father confessed to those robberies, but knew that he had committed them. Not to mention there were wrappings from the Oregon banks lying around the apartment. And of course thousands of dollars in cash that they obviously had spent, since they needed to rob more banks to replenish their stash. It isn't really surprising to me that the situation with the lady that took Abby in, didn't work out. By this time Abby was 21, and I think the lady, sweet as she was, was treating Abby like a teenager. And what is the point of making someone go to church if they obviously are not getting something out of it? Who knows if Abby had been in a different situation post release if she would have made better choices. But she certainly appeared to have broken every parole condition she likely had, so chances are she would not have. Interesting that Hayden has adjusted so well to prison. I think unless he does get into a situation involving a church, he will not adjust well to the outside. Wow their father was a piece of work. About the only positive thing I can say about him is that he didn't name his kids Tom and Kitty. That's all I got.
  14. How strange. Without going back too far, the last two years of NY had 19 episodes before the reunion shows. And as you have said, BH is on episode 20, but the last two years had 18 episodes each before the reunion shows. How odd that the number of epis are inconsistent both within a franchise itself from year to year, and from franchise to franchise. I really hope they didn't make this season shorter just because Lu couldn't travel out of the country. Who cares? She wasn't at the reunion last year because she checked into rehab, so why would they cut the season short because she can't travel? I think Bravo is taking their viewers for granted.
  15. So Dorinda thinks it is OK to call Tins a liar, and insist that she still must be seeing Scott because that is the only way she could have new dresses? This from the woman who has been saying for years that she is only with John because she gets the fabulous dresses that aren't claimed at his dry cleaning business. Shut up, Dorinda. Have these women never had a friendship with an ex after the romantic/sexual relationship ends? I have never not had a relationship with my exes. (Talking boyfriends here, as my present husband is also my first husband). My oldest friendship with an ex is now 40 years old. Let this be the end of us having to go to Lu's cabaret show over, and over, and over. It is becoming viewer abuse. And if Lu was really an attentive parent, she would have noticed that horrible facial hair on Noah and told him how terrible it looks on him. I thought the surprise Bethenny had for Sonja after Barbara ruined the first surprise party was very sweet. I can't believe the season is over. Doesn't filming usually go into the new year? It seems like the filming was over a period of fewer months this season.
