    It is odd. Usually they'll say something like, "She's off filming for whatever" or "He's a little under the weather today" when one of them is absent. Nothing like that either time.

    I think you mean Candiace and her mother.

    S11.E19: Reunion Part 2

    Thanks, everyone who expressed condolences about my cousin. It was a long time ago, and it's mostly scabbed over, but I was left with deeply angry feelings about the whole issue of driving drunk. On a cheerier note, you all have displayed such restraint in not using the word "pupsicle" even once in this whole thread. Kadooz for that! And I'm not making light of Tinsley's loss in any way. The only thing worse than seeing the person at the animal hospital with the dying dog is being that person, which I've been too many times. Or vice versa. Unless you're Bethenny and stand around watching your dog seize for an hour without getting in the car and racing to the vet but choose instead to do some kind of Anna Magnani impersonation on social media. I don't live in that universe, thank God. But I can absolutely envision myself doing what Tinsley did, panicking and dialing 911. So no shade from me.

    It made me laugh to hear that Gizelle thinks of herself as introverted. Her kids are great, though, somehow.

    I'm saying that we take drunk driving far too lightly in this country. I thought that was clear from what I posted. There's a whole industry devoted to getting people off the legal hook for doing something that's a crime. It doesn't matter whether the person driving under the influence is a full-time alcoholic or just a hobby drunk. It certainly didn't matter to my cousin, who was a young pregnant newlywed, her unborn child, and her husband when a drunk driver killed them all. What we call the person who does it is inconsequential. It's a crime that should carry a jail sentence, IMO.

    IIRC, when Dorinda first came onto the show, she talked about her father as having been a blue-collar worker, maybe something like an installer or repair guy for the local power company? He used to go do jobs in the Bluestone Manor house, and she had dreams as a little girl of owning that house someday. That really endeared her to me at the time. Now not so much. I don't think a DWI is something to dismiss casually as a little mistake. I think it's a very serious crime, like getting drunk and waving a loaded gun around in an auditorium. Maybe you'll get lucky and not kill anyone, or maybe you won't get lucky. I don't think people should get one for free.

    Indispensable Kitchen Gadgets

    Well, that's too bad. I just kind of assumed that an appliance called a microwave/toaster oven would actually . . . you know, toast. My next step would be to check out reviews for some of them on Amazon and see if people who've bought one mention the toasting function. I hope you have better luck down the road finding something that fills the bill.

    I don't know anything about the combo ovens, beyond the fact that they exist. But I Googled and found a ton of sites that rate them. Here are three, and you can find a bunch more by just searching for "microwave toaster-oven combo": https://www.kitchensanity.com/microwaves/microwave-toaster-oven-combo/ https://www.sullivansteakhouse.com/best-microwave-toaster-oven/ https://cooknovel.com/best-microwave-toaster-oven-combo/

    She must've forgotten to scoop up a pair of these. The real deal from D&G are $4,500, but these knockoffs will set you back $35. Which I think is more in her price range these days. I couldn't make it through more than ten minutes of this. I'll have to read here to see how it all plays out.
  10. Or "ya know"? Because Carole is so intellectually superior to Tinsley, she couldn't possibly be a real friend. And of course has to make that painfully clear by saying it a hundred times. She couldn't possibly just leave it alone and let people think whatever they might think, out of . . . oh, say, kindness. I wonder how many children will die thanks to Jenny McCarthy's moronic anti-vaccing crusade. Two mental giants.

    Small Talk: The Regency Bar

    What a lovely photo, @Stats Queen. Here's my girl. Maybe "comfort" wasn't the right word. We call this the death glare. She aims it at you till you do her bidding. Which in this case would be getting better, so it's terrorism in a good cause.

    I do! And even better, I have a cat named after cheese. 🐈 She's very selective about who/when she comforts, but I'm sure that once I tell her about you, she'll be all over the job. I'm so sorry this happened, WQ. Please heal up ASAP.

    I saved you the trouble. And you can save yourself by snapping it up here for $34 and change. The dangling sash doubles as a snatch guard.

    Well, to be fair, it was a split decision. 😁
