Really? I read her book (What Remains, and I recommend it). I really liked her based on that, then I found out she was great friends with the utterly repellent Andy Cohen. Shudder.

I guess you don't watch RHONY. She is utterly insufferable, she plays like she's cool but she's not, she's conceited, judgmental, tattletale and a mean girl especially with Bethenny. She got called out for What Remains being ghostwritten and her reaction was over the top crazy (grabbed one legged Aviva's face on a flight of stairs) and made everyone think there was truth to the rumor by her behavior.

Wow, really?? Yikes. I almost started watching because I'd liked her book. Glad I didn't!

You should watch RHONY, it's fun. Some people love Carole, some people loather her. She comes on as "I'm an above it all observer" but gets down and dirty real fast just like the rest of them just in a more quiet, low key way and she gets other people to do her dirty work. And she's more ridiculous than most (to me anyway) because of her lofty pretensions and over inflated ego. She goes from "serious writer" one season, then the next she's a Carrie Bradshaw wannabe then the next season she's an aging hipster mean girl riding on her bf's handlebars like she's 14.

Darcey RUN!!! The abuse will only get worse...

Watching this episode now.  What abuse?  Darcy was drunk and stupid and he could tell she was soused.  He could tell that she was drunk.  She seeing a bad side of him?  Sounds like he was seeing a sloppy, drunken idiot.  Maybe if someone had sat Darcey down and told her the truth, she wouldn't be over there looking like a fool.  It's not that she just wants a Dutch lover, she wants to get MARRIED and to me, that makes zero sense.  

Abby could do a lot worse than Sean.  She could find some idiot young guy who'll get her pregnant and bail.

Jesse is swept away, round and round he goes, while Darcy finds a fun place to have a drink.

And then Darcy blacks out drunk, wakes up naked and doesn't remember what happened or where she is.  

Not pretty right?  

Neither is a drunk.

This whole thing with Jesse makes no sense. When she arrives at his apartment for the first time and he'd  pulled out all the stops, he had TWO bottles of sparkling wine in the chiller. TWO for just two people. That is a lot of wine to expect two people to drink if you're afraid of alcoholics.

I think that it was part of his romance decor along with the balloons and flowers.

Darcy looks amazing, though I wish she'd tone it down just a little. And girl, you don't need that jackass. Do you and focus on your children and the right man for you will come along. 

Ugh, I hate it when people say this, because IMO, it's not true.  A lot depends on where you live and what you look like.  But I agree that Darcy should just take care of herself and her daughters.  She should have just banged Jesse in Amsterdam and been done with it.

Myriam did nothing wrong here, except maybe being too considerate of aly for allowing that happity ass Patrick into her country in the first place.   Maybe her flaw is that she was too polite to tell an internet friend to cut the shit before it became a problem.   

 

Myriam was playing games and I laughed at her "tears" when Patrick's mother told her about herself.  How can she sit there and say, "I thought we were just friends?"  Really?  Maybe Myriam's brain dead but if a man told me he was coming from Europe to the USA to see me, I'd assume it wasn't just because he thinks we're friends.  

She's a player pure and simple, as is Patrick.

Shame on Shawn for cutting Patrick's mother off because she fell for the famous "white woman's tears" trope.

Myriam stated on the show that he played it like he was coming to Paris and that they should meet not that he was coming only to eet her.

Mother Patrick can' even tell her son who he is much less a woman she has never met.

I watch RHoNY and I like Carole.  All Housewives pretty much have to be friends with Andy Cohen; he's their executive producer.

Carole's friendship with Andy predates her being a HW.

Abby: You a Ho-Ho-Ho , Merry Chris-mas! Scabies and all.

Sean: Dude, there are a thousand other Ho's in Haiti. Just swap her for another one, until you find one that lies to you the least. Surely it's cheaper and more fun than getting strung along by ScAbbies.

Miriam:  you a two-faced bitch, no man buys a ticket to fly to the other side of the world just to hang out like friends. You're a heartless dick tease.

Darcy: I know your dream was to plant that Aryan sculpture in your house, but it's clear he's a douche who just wanted to get on TV.  Maybe just be a little open minded and find a guy of similar age with a little bit of a tummy, good hair and a good sense of humor, who will make you look really sexy next to him instead of like Donatella Versace look-a-like with a model escort?

Patrick:  you fell for classic chick game since the beginning of time: 'Platonic friends', what Chris Rock calls "Dick under glass. In case of emergency, break glass." Because you never know...

Jesse and Antonio: why don't you get a real job instead of looking for your 'big break' so you can finally move out of those shoe-box apartments. Exercise is good for the body, but have you ever exercised your brain?

Paul: I symphathize with your geekiness, and you seem to want to make up for your sins. Get some therapy. 

Karine:  sweet girl, awesome bod.. a little bit of a butterface, but a sweet girl nonetheless. I hope Paul takes care of you.

I really like Karine, and I feel so bad for her because she clearly realizes Paul is a HUGE loser. At the same time, she looks around and knows she doesn't have many options for a good life. Although I wonder if the whole cell phone theft/ machete threat was staged, I did recognize that Karine was in an area she identified as 'dangerous' and her nerves were shot. "I don't want this. I don't want Paul." She appears to be an intelligent gal, and if her life (and her family's) will be improved by her marrying Paul the loser, then I wish her well. HOWEVER, if Paul ends up just staying there, passively not learning the language and living off of her… well, maybe Paul will simply disappear? Her dad's a retired cop, right?

I agree, something was weird with the machete incident! First off, the guy runs up to her with a big ass machete already out in the open and no one has noticed it before he reached her? She didn’t seem that freaked out when it happened either. Plus, when the machete guy ran into the trees wasn’t there a sound like a gun being fired? Like the guy got shot by cops or something yet nothing was ever mentioned about hearing a gun shot was there? Did I miss that part? Plus she seemed to have a phone again quite quickly when Paul went to where she was staying at a friends house.

     Paul seems like a HUGE wacka doodle douche bag! 

     And remember that body suit get up he had on before he got into the water at the river or lake, whichever it was... that right there would’ve been enough for me to walk away!!

Has anyone checked out Darcy’s clothing line? Is it just merchandise with that logo plastered on it?

 Oh Larry, Larry, Larry what was that ridiculous bowing and genuflecting to Jenny’s parents?  And then he refused to eat the food that was specially prepared for him as a huge and expensive honor? It’s just pork, Larry. 

Anthony needs to  find a way to just tell Courtney that she needs to get a hotel room.  She’s being rude to insist on sleeping on the bed and making him sleep on the couch.  Why isn’t she on the couch?  she’s ridiculous I can’t stand her.

I wanted to swoop in and grab the whole pig and eat it myself. That is the best pork he would have ever tasted. I doubt he knows where pork comes from.

As the daughter of a French woman and the wife to a German man for 20 years, I gotta defend Europeans about the comment upthread that all Europeans are lazy?!? Sweeping generalization much? All the Europeans I have ever associated with have been well educated and hardworking. Thanks. Just had to get that off my chest. :-) 

Larry sucks. That is all. I don't care what the fueckety fuck Larry's issues are with pork or pig or pig's head; he could have been a damn sight more gracious about it. I know this has all been said, but my heart just broke when Jenny said that having a lechon was a special occasion, and that last time they had one when was she was a little kid.  Like once in 10 years?!? This came on top of knowing that Jenny has not seen her mother in three years. Can you imagine the burden that young girl feels to try to do her part to lift her family out of poverty? 

I am officially Team Jenny all the way now. Larry could have stayed in his end of the ocean and found some nice girl close to home, but no, Larry decided to go all exotic and bride shop on the other side of the world when he knows that he is the most unadventurous, untraveled, unaware of the outside world  person I have ever seen. You refuse to stay in your lane, you get what you deserve. Paul, criminal doofus that he is, managed to do some research on where he was going...maybe too much, but better than zilch, null, nada, zero. 

About the same amount of time Larry and Paul have sex.

So off topic but I sat and watched on demand all of the shows and the reunion is not available. I was able to watch the first segment with Sean and the giggling skyped hooker on TLC site then sat thru 9 commercials waiting for next segment  before giving up. Reading here I have to decide if it's worth buying / viewing on Amazon. Let face it my brain has already been turned into grape jelly after the marathon watch!

If I recall correctly, Larry is Jewish. So, no, he really couldn't have eaten any of the pig. And where do you get the bolded part from? McDonald's burgers are actually beef; highly processed beef, but they're still beef. So even if he eats at McDonald's, provided he's not having the McRib, then he's still not eating pork.

Larry isn't Jewish.  He's just stupid.

Passariello is an Italian name. And Larry is quoted in Men’s Health as saying he and Jenny are devout Christians:

Darcy's twin sister looks alot better than Darcy does. Darcy's plastic surgery really sucks.  But I agree with above. She smells of desperation like Dani does.

Just watching this now....sucked into this show from the Love After Lockup forum. I thought the same thing! Why does her sister look so much more natural AND younger than her? Her face looks all swollen all the time, a very botched plastic surgery. And the pictures she sent him (from what....20 years ago???) Wow she is in for a rude awakening. Sorry for my very belated comment but this is a dumpster fire I cannot stop watching.

This show constantly astounds me with the human mind's ability to deceive itself when it really really really wants something. She said she was taking one last shot at love for her and her kids. She said her heart was on the line, and so were her daughter's hearts. I suspect Darcey is one of those people who justify a lot of their behavior as parents by saying crap like "the best thing I can do for my kids is to give them a happy healthy mother." In other words, what makes mom happy is what's best for the the children. Even knowing that, I can't imagine how leaving her daughters for more than a month is good for them. How hooking up with a 24 year old is good for them. How marrying someone she barely knows, and they don't know at all is good for them. How bringing that 24 year old to live in her home as a father figure is good for them.

Darcey isn't a stupid woman. But she's certainly playing the role of one on tv. This woman is going to frustrate me. Not as much as Danielle and Nicole, but almost.

I agree with you, but I do believe she is kinda stupid - by choice. My jaw is on the floor watching this crap. I hate myself for being addicted to trash tv lately but I cannot turn away.

So I'm way behind the times, but after watching S2 first, I decided to go back and watch S1. Holy moly. I HATED Jesse in S2. Thought he was kind of a psychopath. Now I'm seeing some of the groundwork for that. Darcey really is a bit much.  I am 39, so just a couple of years younger than her, but I swear to God I look 20 years younger. Her desperation is giving me secondhand harassment. And Pole is just a few bugbites away from losing his shit and going psycho on everyone. I actuallylike Abby. I'm sure that may change.

Maps aren't "in" a language. They're diagrams 🙂

I just vacationed in Italy.  I was appalled by the number of English speaking tourists (I'll leave you to guess their country of origin) who made no effort at all to use any Italian.  Not "hello", "please", "thank you". Nothing.  One woman, whose distinctive accent left no doubt about her nationality, complimented a fruit vendor in a market on his English. His face said "hey, bitch, how about you try some Italian?"

I know this post is super old but...I backpacked Europe half a dozen times by myself. Hungary had, by far, the most difficult language to catch onto. People often asked me how I was able to get around the city on their subway when I couldn't read their language. It's because I wasn't looking at the map, or subway stops, as words-I was looking at them as groups of letters like symbols and "matching" them to the ones in my guidebook. One doesn't need to be able to read the language to read a map. I really didn't get that about Cortney at all. That was the least of my issues with her, though.
