Never realized this before, but Arianna was in season 1 briefly as one of Scheana's backup dancers for that terrible performance in episode 5. Bravo's been airing episodes early in the morning before their sudden Sex & the City run. Where'd that come from anyway, I thought that was E!'s thing.

Yeah, I'm a huge SATC fan, but not so much on the diluted regular network TV version of the show.  Considering how tight Andy is with SJP and Matthew Broderick, I wouldn't be surprised if he single-handedly cut some deal with HBO or whoever owns the syndication rights to bring it to Bravo.

 

These reruns...Ah, how they fill a snark void in my soul.

 

Just last night I watched the first episode.

 

Seeing Tom flat-ironing his hair and bitching about the lack of a decent hairspray in the apartment...

 

And speaking of their apartment, remembering how dull and depressing and dank that apartment is.  Kind of like the relationship between Tom and Kristen.

 

Seeing Kristen, rolling from her sleep clothes into the bedroom to change into her work uniform without showering and being reminded of how someone commented that Kristen looked as if she reeked of old cigarettes, stale coffee, and body odor.

 

Seeing Stassi tearing Jack a second asshole over lunch in front of all of their friends...and the cameras.

 

Seeing Schaena feigning innocence over not knowing Eddie was married (bitch, please, you're dumb but not THAT dumb).

 

Now I really cannot wait for season 3 to start up and get the snark into turbo drive....Hurry up, November 3rd!!!

Hurry up, November 3rd were my sentiments exaxtly after watching the rerun on Bravo this morning. I could do without Stassi's return. It was rumored she quit and moved to NYC. That was too good to be true. Anyway... I'm loving that Ariana is back. I hope she's featured more because I think she's has a decent personality. But I'm sure we'll witness more of Kristen's jealousy and ranting and crying over FI Tom knowing Bravo. Oh well! Bring it.

I can't wait. This show is SUCH trash and I am so hooked. Last season finding out that Kristen and Jax actually DID hookup was such delicious snark. 

 

They must have paid Stassi a boatload to come back.

I refused to watch this show for the longest time, even though Mr. Persnickety assured me I was missing out on a treasure trove of snark.

 

Then I stumbled onto a review somewhere on the internet that talked about how priceless this show was, because the participants were so raw and thirsty that they would stop at NOTHING, even giving up their last shred of self-respect, in their desperation to be relevant and "discovered."

 

Okay, now that intrigued me enough to watch an episode or two, then I was completely and irreversibly hooked on this shitstorm.

 

Whoever wrote that review I read was so spot on with this show.  The angst, the anger, the bitterness, how overwrought they all are...I'm telling ya, reality TV just doesn't get much more golden than this debacle.

 

I think with the way the ratings shot up last season, Miss Stassi knew she could write her own ticket if Bravo wanted to recreate the "magic" of season 2.  I don't believe she ever intended to permanently relocate to New York.  I think she's a smart cookie (whether she's likable or not is a whole 'nother discussion) and knew Bravo would come waving a couple of extra 0's on a paycheck to get her back.

 

I am now watching the previous 2 seasons on the DVR and OnDemand and wringing my hands in anticipation.  After the snoozefest of RHONJ this season, a little VPR is definitely what the TV doctor ordered.

There's going to be ANOTHER season?

I didn't believe for a nanosecond that Stassi was moving to NYC, never to be seen again.

 

Nah, she's a reality famewhore. Wouldn't miss a new season for the world. If I recall correctly, she was also on the reality show where groups or couples race from city to city based on clues. Can't think of that show name for the life of me.

Lol. So they make fun of people who ran out of money at the mall, but they're screaming about 25 grand? I mean, that amount could buy a lot of clothes at a mall, but still snarkworthy.

Agreed.

 

I remember Stassi saying during season 1 of VPR that her parents footed the bill for her life until she was out of college and then it was cut off (of course, I doubt it was totally cut off but perhaps substantially reduced, she was still driving a really nice car and had a decent apartment, which in Hollywood doesn't come cheap).

 

Since she was working at VPR and apparently chasing her reality show/acting dream, I'll give her credit for not being too proud to do server work to support herself while she pursued acting endeavors, considering that she comes from (reportedly) an extremely wealthy family.  

 

For anyone new to this show, we did have a handful of TWOP members who took one for the team and went to the VB and SUR and verified that, yes, indeed this group of overwrought and thirsty people do indeed work at the restaurants.  Cameras were not rolling, it was not during filming for a season, but, yep, they were confirmed to have been working there.  Also a couple of posters who worked in the SUR area confirmed that, yes indeedy, they seemed to spend more time outside smoking in the parking lot/alley (whatever that area is) than tending to the patrons.  

 

I guess in this show a lot of what you see is precisely what you get.  

 

Color me shocked.  I figured Lisa had just put out a casting call and hired them strictly for VPR.

If memory serves, they observed that the people who were mad at each other either had made up since the season aired or were faking it for the show. :-)

Wouldn't that require Lisa VanderBucks to hire real models and actors?

I've been watching season 1 online since I've never seen it. It's the one where Jax starts dating Laura-Leigh, Stassi was with Frank and they broke up pretty soon after.

 

One thing I keep wondering as I watch: Laura-Leigh got some really abusive texts from Stassi and she called her out on it, as well as told Lisa about it, and she said she received these kinds of texts daily from Stassi. Why didn't she just block her number then? Makes you wonder if it was scripted/producer driven.

Ewww! Jax and Lorileigh having sex in the bathroom at Sur! Ew, ew, ew! Plus that girl is Kristen level crazy.

Why do these people look un-showered so much? I don't shower every day either, but I don't have a camera crew following me around. If I did, my morning routine would be a good hour longer. I would think that a group of people who spend so much time talking about how important it is to be hot would care more about looking like smelly junkies on TV. I think at times I like Stassi only because she looks clean next to all the oily monkeys.

I also think Tequila Katie looks clean, she just has questionable judgment on haircolor and boyfriends. Scheana too, in fact out of all of them she seems like she has it all together. I also think it's smart of Shay to stay the fuck away from the VPR cameras as much as he does.

Yeah I guess you're right. It's mostly the boys and Kristen. Although the the sheer amount of makeup Scheana wears gives her a bit of a sticky look. FI Tom is the weirdest. Why spend all that time getting ready but neglect to wash your damn face when you start?

What's up with the two different uniforms (the sweatshirt dress and the flimsy boho print thing)? Are they daytime/nighttime or summer/winter? I think they're both pretty odd as far as waitstaff uniforms go(the first time I saw Katie wearing the sweatshirt dress I thought it was literally a sweatshirt she threw on because she was going to change at work) but why have two different sets of uniforms? Everybody wears the same thing together so there must be a schedule, but I can't figure it out.

They may shower every day, but when you drink as much as they do while constantly blowing lines of coke it tends to make you super greasy

I'm on S2 now. I have no idea why, but Scheana always bugs me so much more than Stassi. I know that she's probably a less objectionable person, but she grates. Grates. So. Much. Something about her voice and the way she bobs her head around. Makes me want to tell her to shut up.

I need all my Bravo Magnum PIs. In S2 when Sheana gets engaged, afterwards Stassi says something about how she's been on Scheana's bridesmaid list before. Was Scheana just in the habit of planning her wedding to Shay when she got drunk or had she been ENGAGED 19 TIMES?!?!? I could buy either from Scheana. I know in some ways she's the most functional of the bunch but the fact she can't help dressing and talking like a porn star from the valley gets on my nerves. And then I feel bad about talking shit...about porn stars from the valley.

PS I find Peter oddly attractive. I will call a therapist in the morning.

I personally think the best season of this show was the 2nd season. I don't know why but something about it, kept me wanting to tune in. Watching Kristen go full on crazy at the prospect of Ararinha suddenly working at sur. The fact that she kept the truth about what happened with Jax until the finale and  the punch at the party. Totally why I sign up for this hot mess of a show.

Rewatching the reunion from last year. Seems that "I have/had your back!!" is the Teen Mom 2 equivalent of "I'm done!!!"


Or "The truth will come out!"

 

Still waiting on that one..


I just want that nut job Laura Leigh to make an appearance again!

Ditto, that girl was a hot mess! I don't think she has booked (m)any jobs since that tiny role in We're the Millers as a stripper. I have a nagging feeling LL was sent from Central Casting, just like Vail was during last season.

Coming to the shirt-stripping, shots-doing, flat-ironing, forehead-shaving, finger-waving, accent-having, mascara-smearing, spray-tanning party late, because none of you bitches texted me after my surgery, but this show is jaw-droppingly fantastic. Settling in for the next season: chardonnay, check; other thing I need...uh, more chardonnay, check!

Hulu has officially uploaded seasons 1-3. Yes!

Is this new? I borrowed my friends Hulu password because I went on and saw all the seasons. Loving it. Been binge watching for 3 days.

The biggest thing it is reminding me of is what a disgusting human being Stassi is. Her interviews can be funny, and she has been through a whole lot of crazy bullshit with these morons, but she is a real asshole. I love to watch bad stuff happen to her. Yeah I know that makes me no better ;)

Oooh how exciting! I had assumed they had always been there because I only checked the first time a few days ago. I haven't even watched the first season 4 episode yet because I am waiting until I make my way though all of the old episodes first. I am on season 2 secrets revealed right now

Stassi is the worst. I know that Jax and Kristen hooked up and were cheating but I think Tom said it best at the reunion, Stassi got so much enjoyment out of making Kristen look awful for it. Granted, Kristen should have not done it in the first place and then been honest about to her so called best friend when it happened but when Jax finally came clean to Stassi, Stassi put together a PARTY so that all of their friends could hear Kristen's confession. Which Kristen did not give and then Stassi proceeded to slap her. Which, yes, I mean, that is what I'm here for, but what type of person arranges a event so they can confront their cheating boyfriends and friends? Who the hell does that?

I know this should make me hate Stassi too because you're right, that's just psycho...but damn it's also funny! I just have no sympathy for any of these fuck monkeys so I tend to enjoy it when they go full on soap opera. Bring on the Lila Fowler machinations!

I mean, yes it's funny. And like I said, I'm watching this show to see these idiots get slapped or punched. I'm always kind of bored when there's no fighting in an episode. Because these people are in their late 20s/early 30s, so logically, they should not be getting drunk and getting into drunk fights but they do, and it's funny because they are all so awful. But I think Stassi was way too happy to humiliate Kristen. And as much as Kristen deserved it, it was just...so strange to watch someone take joy in that. But it is funny. I would probably never hang out with any of these people. They really are all bad.

I have been doing a Hulu rewatch from the beginning and oh wow, I have a lot of thoughts.

 

First - I have to discuss my absolute discomfort and full disgust at Guillermo's stripper party.  That was fully inappropriate for Lisa to ask the waitresses to do a half-naked dance for their boss.  And she was like, oh they wear less when they go out to a club.  This was absolute sexual harassment in the workplace.  They were TOLD to go into a crowd of people and dance half naked.

She even said - "go out there and be crazy and BE SURE that man has a great birthday."  WTF are you kidding me??  How dare she say that to them?

His wife, Nathalie seems desperate and sad, trying to hold onto her husband by hiring (and forcing) young women (some of whom work for him) to dance provocatively for him.  I am so grossed out.

 

The other truly awful scene (maybe worse?) was when Lisa and Natalie give him the Mercedes.  "Hey, people who work for us and make minimum wage - your boss, who is very wealthy will be getting a very expensive gift!  Go out and cheer for him and his riches!  Go and smile and be happy for this man to get a gift that costs more than your yearly wages!"  SO GROSS!

 

Sassi is awful.  She is the worst.  And LISA (who is a real asshole) is almost encouraging of her queen bee bitchy behavior.  She probably loves that she is in with the "cool kids" maybe not realizing that they are nice to her because they have to be for their jobs.  Lisa is also in love with Jax and thinks he's some kind of cassanova. 

I do get a kick out of Stassi making fun of Sheana, so then I am confused as to who to laugh at.  Sheana is ridiculous - she really wants for everyone to think she is awesome, she wants to be the Queen Bee.  But she is such a dork.  During the second season, the way Lisa was drooling over here, it was pathetic.

 

Jax is definitely on coke.

 

There is so much more!

There's a season one marathon on right now.  Everyone looks so much better in season one except Kristin.  Kristin looks so much better now than she did then.  Aside from her they all just look so much fresher and I don't think it is all age doing it.  Scheana for instance still wore a lot of makeup back then, but it was spackled on a with a lighter hand than it is today, and she looked much prettier.  She should really tone it down.  Jax still had a cromag head, but it seemed smaller and less sweaty.

 

Right now they are having a staff meeting about the fight in Vegas, which means I missed the chunky sweater fight, so my day is kind of ruined.

There's an uncensored special for Season 1 airing tomorrow night.

I am trying to figure out what is meant by "uncensored". Does this mean the naughty words won't be bleeped out?

Based on the commercial, it's behind the scenes stuff, and interviews with the cast and crew.

Gah! It was so good. Things revealed: that Stassi did hook up with Frank while she was with Jax (duh), Jax banged Laura Leigh everywhere, that the chief reason that Stassi was a heinous hose beast to Scheana was because they wanted Schwartz to be part of the cast, and that Ariana was a nightmare to film (shocker!).

I really loved season one, so this special was tip top in my book. Loved hearing from the production team and how they were choosing sides between Jax and Stassi. Absolutely priceless. I loved when Sandoval slipped into the chunky sweater to discuss Vegas. I hope they do the other seasons as well, although the other seasons are way more episodes so there is probably less cut material

I loved the season 1 special, so much scoop and backstory.  It was also quite striking to see how different everyone looks now, most not for the better.  Whoever did Stassi's makeup for it should be shot.  She looked horrific.
