I'm looking forward to RHONY purely because Tinsley Mortimer is joining the cast.  Tinsley is a fallen socialite and total trainwreck.  Apparently, she's living with Sonia Morgan.

Week 3 - how you liking it now?

 I thought sure I had sworn off looking at the show after last season, but the delicious prospect of seeing Carole all verklempt when Hillary loses was just too much to resist.  

However, that Dorinda?! When somebody makes Bethany Frankel look mellow, that's bad, very bad. I think Tinsley is just Sonia, junior grade.

But I do get a tickle out of the fact that a subplot this week was kids leaving home: Quincy Morgan, Hannah Daughter Of Dorinda, and of course, Adam!

I did not watch this week's episode, but read something on Vulture last week that pointed out that these women don't seem like real friends.  The women of Beverly Hills had some real friendships going on before the show started and Kyle and Kim are sisters.  I did laugh at the RHoBH reunion, part III when Kim Richards accused Eileen Davison of being melodramatic because she was a soap actress.  Eileen is about the most undramatic person there.  I still can't stand Dorit.  I'd rather she not be on next year.

Haven't been able to grok the BH crew tho I somewhat enjoyed OC when a local gold digger, the ruthless third Mrs. Jimmy Edmonds, was on. Giraffe-woman. 

ITA that there are no friendships in NY.  Well, maybe Doris & Lu, but RamonJa looks broken-up beyond any repair and Beth truly loves no one, including herself. Carole's a poser.  Tinsley = too soon to call AND a bit predictable-- oh heck, aren't they all? LOL

I read a interview with Dorinda Medley on Vulture the other day.  She said that somehow the Housewives had gotten divided into Team and Team B.  It occurred to me that that has happened on Beverly Hills and the OC, as well.  Dorinda didn't like the team BS. I don't like it either.

Intriguing! I wouldn't trust Do with my life story BUT I'd rather spend time with her than any of the others. Ima going to look for the interview.  BTW, trashtalktv.com has the best recaps (imho, of course) even though they're usually. It up until 48 hours or so after the broadcast. Highly recommend 'em. 

Also, I envy Lu's ability to fall without breaking  aught!!!!!!!

I read earlier this evening that LuAnn is divorcing Tom after only 8 months.  I feel bad for LuAnn, but I'm not surprised.  Tom was just a tomcat who could not resist tomcatting around.

On this season of RHoNY, Dorinda and Carole seem to be getting close again.  They went to the Women's March, hung out together at the Vermont ski trip and again in Mexico.  I think that's a good thing.  Dorinda is better for Carole than is Bethenny.

Yeah, she's no angel but if I had to spend time with any HW my first choice would be Lu -- with the understanding that Bravo was picking up the tab for whatever food & drink we visited over!

i go back and forth on Carole. Enjoyed her memoirs but she's slippery with her alliances.

Dorinda -- now there's my girl. Cooks, cleans, makes it nice and ISTM is most fluid between her current wealthy status and her modest roots.  Carole & Lu tend to pretension.

I'd observe Sonja but she seems dirty to me, physically. Have less than zero interest in the vile Ramona. Repugnant creature.

Bethenny's motormouth would drive me crazy in less than 60 seconds but I'd want her to know I noticed her. The one I miss most is Heather. The one I want to protect and defend is Jules. The one I always forget about is Aviva. Got no time for people who act like she does. 

Anyway, back to Lu -- she'll continue to be fine. Heck, she's got a storyline and an apple for 2 more seasons at least! Tom--cipher then, cipher now. Glad he'll be gone.

I'm still on Heather's Yummie email list.  One of these days I need to get some of those slimmers.  I hear they are better than Spanx.  I do miss Heather, but admire her for getting off the program before it screwed her up.

I hate that they fired Jules just as her marriage was breaking up. I suppose she was not dramatic enough.

Lu did not need another skirt-chasing husband.  Good riddance to that bad rubbish Tom!

Yummie > Spanx? Thanks for the tip. I've gotten to the point where I grudgingly will wear a pair for the greater aesthetic benefit. 

You know what I've wondered? If Jules had her eyes done to look less Asian. Or if she just got her dad's eyes. I liked her. Anybody coming from 2 high-achieving family traditions has a lot to live up to. Hope her kids are not the brats that the show implied they were. 

Just noticed, looking at the latest show, that Carole's big happy laugh during her tagline is in response to Heather. I imagine those 2 are still friends.  For all her pretense, Carole does seem to have a genuine side to her.

I take back every single mean thing I've ever said about Bethenny.  As of Tuesday, she had sent at least 30 planeloads of supplies to Puerto Rico at her expense and she was going to keep going.  I'm not talking about little bitty planes either; I'm talking cargo jets.  Go Bethenny!

For real? 

Bethenny for president! 

Makes more sense than what we have now.

Didn't think I'd watch the new season of RH of New Jersey, but yep, I watch it.  Several weeks ago, the women went to Boca to do something nice for Theresa (her mom had recently died) and to celebrate Melissa Gorga's birthday.  Siggy had a gorgeous cake made and, after the cake hd been cut and slices shared, the cake got thrown.  Siggy can't  let the damn cake go.  Tonight at a party at her house, she asked her guests if they thought it was rude if the cake was thrown.  Well, maybe it was, but not nearly as fucking rude as it was for you to humiliate Melissa when she's right there at the party.  Siggy, once you give a cake to someone, it is theirs to do what they want with it.  Let cake-gate go!

SRSLY.

I liked Siggy for about an episode last year, ‘til her own mother called her on her hypocrisy Siggy was wailllllllllling that her kids neglected her, and Siggy’s mom said, “you neglect me.”  My heart broke. Siggy? Take a seat—away from the cameras.

I’m not familiar with Danielle. She was the “prostitution whore” against whom Tre flipped, right? Was she indeed a woman of the evening?

Tre & Mel’s bad blood because of Mel’s unsolicited childraising advice—have any of  these people though to say simply, “shut up” to EACH OTHER? And not to the camera?

oh wait.....

@MamaJunebug, Danielle was, indeed, the "prostitution whore" who brought on Teresa's famous table flip.  I don't know that she was ever  hooker, although I think she may have been an exotic dancer at one time.

Thank you, @PennySycamore

i found this article whilst digging around sounds like she was doomed from the get-go Tia sketchy life. Yet her daughters are okay. That’s good. 

NJ is my truly guilty pleasure. I’m just paying attention to OC for the glimpses of Iceland.

The latest season of RHoBH has started.  John Cougar Mellencamp's daughter is the newest housewife and Eileen is gone.  (She is too busy what with being on two soaps.)  That awful Doreet or whatever her name is (chick with the fake British accent) is on and she's just as horrible as she was before.  Was insulting Mellencamp's daughter at a dinner.  Even her husband was appalled at her behaviour.

I just read this great recap of this week's RHoBH episode:

https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/real-housewives-beverly-hills-recap-051951903.html

John Mellencamp's daughter is named Teddi and it was Camille Grammar that she was insulting last week at Kyle's dinner party.  Dorit called this woman she'd just met the c word.  Classy, Dorit!

LOVED how the NJ HWs gave Soggy no quarter in the first half of the reunion tonight - except I’d go it’s got devoted Dolores, who kept looking to her idol for clues. Some long-timers  think the shows crappy, but this was my first full season and I found it entirely amusing. 

Glad Siggy won’t be back. What a pain she is.

Ugh, Siggy!  She just could not let Melissa and the cake go, could she?  Maybe Melissa should not have thrown the cake, but what Siggy did at the party with humiliating Melissa was so much worse.  Glad she will be gone from next season!
