Janelle Brown: Smarter Than Your Average Brown (Maybe)

Recommended Posts

Maybe Janelle has one of those daily calendars where there is a new health fact every day and she just uses that for her posts. Or a word of the day toilet paper. 

I can’t wait for her post on how one of the little known ways to combat dehydration is to drink water.

It's so difficult to hoist one's butt off the sofa, and walk to the sink, and turn the faucet on.  Adding ice cubes, even more exhausting.  Janelle, you have zero credibility as a "fitness guru" or whatever you call yourself.  Cook up another scheme to wrest money from your army of sycophants, that hang on your every dumb word.

She's a certifiable idiot. Just when it seems she cannot possibly become any more stupid, she does. 

She must have zero perception of how stupid she comes across when she posts this stuff. It's laughable.........like, really? She doesn't see how idiotic she looks? Imagine if Kody's drafting professional gave him a crayon sketch of the house he wants. That's how Janelle appears every time she posts something about health or wellness. Fucking idiot. 

Yes, a crayon drawing of the House of Four Wives and Janelle's Strive is a great comparison.   Oh, drat.  Now "House of Four Doors" will play in my mind all day.  Sometimes I outsmart myself with my pathetic attempts at snark.

I generally limit my knowledge of Kody's various tribes to this forum and the show, but today I  ventured off to google-land to research this Strive idiocy.   She actually has Strive merchandise for sale on the website.  And a huge picture of herself in pink.  Shelby from Steel Magnolias might approve.  Or not.  

The picture on her FB page was so touched up that I didn't recognize her.  I was disappointed to see that one of my FB friends follows her. This is a person I have known since middle school, and she is short with a weight problem.  I think she tried to get on biggest Loser once.   I can't believe she follows Janelle.  In fact, I need to forget it.  We have never mentioned the program to each other, and I never will now, 'BUT The next time I visit this friend I will be sneaking around her house looking for "Strive " products.

There are so many things more worthy of my 10.00 a month. I could actually join a gym and pay 10.00 a month, that would mean I would be working out, not just sitting on a couch spewing random shit from the internet. I could wash my car 3x's a month in the drive through and get a free vacuum. I could buy a nice bottle of Fat Bastard Chardonnay to enjoy while watching this shit show. I could buy 5lbs of boneless skinless chicken to cook healthy meals that are not laden with salt and preservatives & most importantly, buy a fucking clue and still have change unlike Janelle

Ha!! I got that one, too.  Several times on these forums (fora, fori?) I have mentioned being older than dirt.  Then I got a ad that said something about needing a lift and the woman looked like she needed a serious facelift.  I finally noticed the ad was from the American Cancer Society or Association.   Yeah, I could use a little work to the face so I don't look like a marionette, but I cannot recall any search I have done that would pull that ad up.   I am reading a book (a real book, a paperback) about a person with cancer, and I discussed it with my hubby.  I guess little phones have big ears.   Creepy.

Well, Christine did say, "I didn't know men could be bastards."  Huh.  Amazing that Kootie's bastardness when Christine was pregnant, by "courting" Robyn then, didn't count.

Since this is Janelle's thread, I wonder what incredibly insightful post we can look forward to when she goes back to AZ?

Hmmm. I am guessing she didn’t see a soul because 1) everyone was out working a real job and/or 2) she didn’t go far enough down the trail to see people who were actually trying to get a work out. 

I notice she didn’t post what her normal indoor workout entails. 

I don’t see the point of the whole strive thing. Are people really paying for Jenelle’s health tips?

Janelle's house is listed on Redfin as "Pending". Christines' is still "delisted (temporarily off market)." That could mean it has an offer, or something else.

Both Christine’s and Janelle’s now show as “off market” on realtor.com. Hmmm. Guess the wet bar wasn’t such a great investment. 

Either that or they decided to move back and are all going to pile into two houses! 🤣

I would watch the HECK outta that.  

Janelle is "taking her work outside?"  What kind of work does she do that she can also do it while walking a trail?  I think her definition of "work" is slightly different than mine.  Or anyone else on these threads.  Or the population of Earth.

Omg... Yes Janelle and 5000 years ago they also thought the earth was flat. 🙄

In the 1700's they still thought blood letting was the cure for almost everything.

I'm not saying going outdoors isn't good for you but just because some nutjob in ancient history thought something was awesome doesn't make it so.

Thanks for the time stamps, @ginger90 - hilarious!

I would argue being outside sunshine is therapeutic no matter where you get it, including sitting at your child’s soccer game. 

If I thought she gave any thought to what Strive is, I would say it’s antithetical to her core belief that small acts add up to big changes. You have to take it where you can get it, and being outside can be being in your backyard with your kids, or at the soccer field. It doesn’t have to be locating a nature trail, having the right shoes and water bottle, and hiking five miles.

Ayurvedic wisdom suggests that we spend 3 hours per season adjusting to the weather according to Janelle.  Huh?  

I think she accidentally sploshed a glob of mayo on her iPad.

Shut up, Janelle.  I think the world at large understands that going outside is good.  It's only you that has now just discovered this secret.  We were all collectively hoping you wouldn't find out.

This reminds me of when they were selecting options for their LV houses and Kody was nagging Meri about the expensive options in her house. Meri shouted: "I won't have a slider, Kody!" Like it was the worst thing in the world.

And...is that a dog in a rental? A FURNISHED rental? And Christine couldn't find one that would take her cat? Oh, please.

Considering that this show is about 16 - 20 months behind from what is really happening, is it safe to assume that all four wives are in their rentals right now and that something is being built at the Angels Singink property?  Is there any way to scope out that piece of land to see what, if anything, is being built?

I loved how outspoken and blunt Gabe was on the latest episode.... Maddie was good too.

I wonder if he realizes that tabloids like Enquirer pay good money for inside info?

He could probably have a steady income and they keep their sources confidential.

Please Gabe or Maddie...... Go talk to the tabloids!!!   😂

I bet Maddie could make life hell for Meri if she unloaded everything she knows.

I thought we were only about a year behind or not even that much because it was August in the moving episode so that's 9 months ago.

I could be wrong. *shrug*

They don't have the "build" money until the Vegas homes sell. And when they sell, they still won't have the build money if all four homes don't sell for the right amount.

I thought Kody said in this most recent episode that if they didn't move right then and sell the homes they would go broke in only a few months.  Well, a few months was several months ago and how many homes have they sold so far?  I wonder how their financial situation is right now.

IIRC one home sold, which probably brought in enough to stay current with mortgage and associated costs in Vegas and rental and living expenses in Flag. 

But ... it has taken/is going to take so long to sell all four homes that having to use the Vegas money for current living expenses is draining the build fund month by month, before they even get their griftng paws on it.

I read on one of these threads that two of the properties have been taken off the market.  I wonder if they're going to have to rent them.

Attention Strive with Janelle: avocados are calorie-dense and one serving size is a quarter of an avocado. If you need to lose weight and can’t limit yourself to just one quarter of an avocado, you need to avoid them altogether.

No wonder I can't lose weight! I eat as much avocado as I can get my hands on (but in a restaurant, on toast, only once. I was horrified at the cost!) Also guacamole.

So the take away I got from this is that Janelle doesn't get up till 10:30 in the morning? 

How does she find the time to strive?

This is the same woman who always talks about being so stressed and busy in her posts. Um, most of us have already been up for four hours, getting ready, commuting, and working for at least two hours by the time she wakes up.

Well to be fair to Janelle that post is a satire by our very own funny as heck poster MFM

If you look closely you'll see its titled "Strife" not "Strive" like Janelle's actual posts.

But they all went ripe at the same time (even though I tried to prevent that) so I had no choice!!
