Kandi Burruss New Years Engagement to Todd Tucker

1358361104_kandi-burruss-todd-tucker-lg

Looks like this new year isn’t just a big year for NeNe in terms of love, but Kandi seems to be basking in it as well!

A huge congratulations to Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker who are finally tying the knot.

Todd was introduced to us this season as Kandi’s new boo, man, love, all that and above (or something like that– I am not the lyricist here). As we watched the season unfold, we saw how lovely and awesome they really are together. You can just see the chemistry in the few times they do appear on screen together which can be hard to capture.

As one of my favorite Atlanta housewives, who in all seems the most real and down to earth, I am very, very happy for her.

Let’s get down to the details. Apparently, Todd played a little 007 and bought a ring that Kandi had been eyeing on a Housewives trip. It was shipped over to him from Las Vegas and he had been carrying the thing around for three or four months, just waiting in sweet anticipation for the perfect moment.

Well, that perfect moment happened to be on New Years day. After asking Riley, Kandi’s daughter, for her blessing, he got down on one knee and popped the question in front of close family and friends. Who was also in attendance? The lovely (and pregnant!) Miss Phaedra Parks. Don’t you just love their off-screen friendship?

Obsessed with engagement and diamonds rings (okay, mostly just diamond rings), I was most excited to see the ring. And it’s a beaut.

Many congrats to Kandi and Todd! Lots of wedding bells in Atlanta.

Beverly Hills Season 3 Episode 8

This week’s RHOBH was rather dull and boring, especially after all that time we waited from last time.

I would have had this recap up sooner, but alas, real life gets in the way and my Monday nights are plagued by responsibilities. Nevertheless, I have caught up and am totes ready to give my two cents.

 

Brandi Walks Away

The episode picks up where the last one left off: Kyle’s dinner party where Faye Resnick is still wielding a knife, ready to stab until…until…well, I’m not really sure why Faye continues to harp on Brandi or what she’s hoping to accomplish. Maybe for Brandi to send flowers to Adrienne. I don’t know.

Anyway, Brandi, sometimes a smart cookie, leaves the dinner party very distraught. Two face Kyle jumps from the round table and tackles through a football team of help and cooks to annoyingly follow her. Brandi keeps walking away as Kyle follows her down the street. She obviously is not interested in talking to Kyle or to further the attention on her.

But Kyle insists that she feels bad that this all happened at her dinner party. Sooooo what does that mean? If it happened at Lisa’s, you would have tag teamed with Faye? As if Kyle really cares. She should be the one taking responsibility. Wasn’t she the one who went to dinner with Faye and told the talking parrot what to repeat at the dinner table? I hope Brandi understands that.

Anyway, there’s some crying and more statements repeated like “It’s none of her business” and “I just don’t want to talk about it.” There’s some shots of the dinner table with Lisa and Faye and more “She is such a bad person” and “It’s really none of your business.” Things we’ve been hearing a lot of.

S3 E8

That scene finally ends…and we’re quite over it since it happened…like a million weeks ago.

 

Another Medium

We move on to Taylor. She starts the little segment by saying something along the lines of “I’ve been really busy so I don’t have the time or energy to care about the drama that happened yesterday.” Busy as in dating a married lawyer figuring her life out.

To aid in the fight, she enlists the help of a medium. And this scene is in no way new to a Bravo viewer. If I had a dollar for every time we saw a psychic medium on one of these shows I’d have a million like twenty dollars.  So it’s the typical routine. The medium is weird and walks around the house with chants. She sits down with Taylor and there’s some shots of Taylor looking extremely constipated concerned. I am just loving these cross outs today.

She asks if the courts will suck her dry or if a settlement will be reached. The psychic does this weird thing where she asks a father? or something whether or not there will be court. Then the spirit slaps her with the yes or no answer. Her head whips to the side or up. This happens a few times and the end result is that no, there will be no court. A settlement will be reached. Phew, Taylor says.

 

Namaste Bitches

Ahhh, the yoga scene. As a yogi myself, I enjoyed the fact that yoga was brought up, but then again heartbroken. We notice that no yoga will actually be done because Kyle’s hair is polished and shining in a half-up half-down do. And if you practice yoga, you know that that shit doesn’t fly. It gets all over the place.

Anyway, yoga is a perfect excuse to invite Marisa over, who were are seeing a lot of and whose face vaguely reminds me of Cruella Deville. That’s besides the point. They are not there to stretch and breathe; they are there to talk about the drama that happened at the dinner party. Kyle admits that she thinks Brandi is not truly sorry. Marisa says that she thinks Brandi is a cool girl. She was really nice to her at dinner and they bonded over talking about their children. Good for you, Marisa, to say what you truly think.

S3 E8 1

We get a little interview of Faye (ugh why?) saying that “she’s not buying Brandi’s apology.” Since when was it her place to buy anything? What does she have to do with anything? Go home, Faye.

Marisa also got a interview…are they just giving those interviews away at Bravo? Where can I pick up mine?

The yoga instructor scolds Kyle and Marisa for not truly being into their workout. The girls giggle because they are just oh so silly gals gossiping all cute. I wonder how much he’s getting paid to stand there.

 

Is it Cold in Here?

Lisa and Brandi — BFFLs– go shopping. Brandi picks out a pretty trashy sparkly skirt that doesn’t look like it’d go over the butt and her nipples might as well have interviews of their own because they are popping out so much that Bravo had to blur them out. But that has always been Brandi’s style and, like I’ve said before, with Brandi, you know what to expect.

So here’s the plug for Lisa’s new show. Lisa wants Brandi to sit down with Scheana, Shana?, Scheena? and talk about the cheating scandal. Brandi doesn’t know if she should do it. A simple, short scene.

Now we check in with Taylor again. The medium is right! The lawsuit can be settled, but the lawyer (AKA married man boyfriend at the time just ‘friends’) says that Taylor needs to give up her wedding ring and two really expensive bags that I just can’t remember the name of. She is heartbroken by this news and tears up. She asks her lawyer if she can let him know in a couple days. And he says, “yeah that’s fine, they just want to know by tomorrow.” Okay, awkward.

 

Perfect Mom Award

Yolanda! How I’ve missed my Yolands. Yolands is playing the perfect housewife as always, looking great doing it. She says her daughter can’t do volleyball because she’s got to focus on modeling. I could see how people would not like this statement. But I kinda have to agree with her. Her daughter is such model material. It’s a tricky thing not to ruin that. But like everyone wants me to say… “stop controlling your daughter,” “let her live dammit,” and the like. David Foster talks about how much he loves Yolands and how she takes care of him. I would too if I lived like that.

That’s all we got from Yolands. She’s pretty much just out of the loop and doing her own thing in her gigantic house.

 

Adrienne and Paul Working Together

Is it just me or does anyone feel SO AWKWARD watching Adrienne and Paul on screen? It gives me so much anxiety! I’m not sure if it’s because of all the things that are happening now like the divorce and lies or if they are just truly awkward. My roommate, who knows nothing of the show, asked if Paul was Adrienne’s ex husband. That was a mess to explain, but even so, that proves that they just do not seem in love. The smiles on the camera ain’t fooling anyone.

So, Adrienne and Paul are coming up with this face stuff that Adrienne uses on her face and wants to give it to the public… as if anyone would ever want their face to look like something that came out of Lord of the Rings. Just saying, lay off of it Adrienne. Anyway, she says a little more about Brandi in her interview. Whatevs.

S3 E8 2

 

Dinner and Drinks

Kyle, Adrienne, and Taylor plus their men (lawyer boyfriend/just friends included) sit down for dinner. Taylor announces she gave up her ring and bags. The ladies make a point that it’s not about material things. Yeah…right.

S3 E8 3

 

The Confrontation

Now, the moment we’ve all been waiting for. I feel a little guilty because I feel like I owe you more. I feel like I need to say more than I’m going to say because this moment has been blown up so much. But the Brandi and Scheana scene just sucked so much! The bridge to Vanderpump Rules sucked so much! I absolutely hated everything from this point on.

Brandi basically rocks the confrontation and Scheana tries playing the “I was in love with him!” card. I’m really proud of Brandi’s strength here and I don’t even know her. If this had all happened to me, I’d be crying in the corner. But Brandi has truly accepted it, is willing to face it whenever, and move on. My favorite line is when she basically says, look at us. I’m the one who’s doing a lot better in life. I have my own thoughts on how cheesy, unclassy, and desperate Scheana comes off, but  I’ll save us the time.

But how old is Scheana? She seriously looks 15.

This is when things get awkward. After the confrontation and everything is deemed okay, music starts playing. Music with words…UM WHAT? Since when has the housewives played anything with words? And it’s cheesy, too. It’s so awkward! And then you know what’s going to happen when the camera does not follow Brandi, but follows Scheana who talks to Lisa. Lisa brings up SUR and Vanderpump Rules begins.

Because I was still finishing eating some crackers with spreadable cheese wedges, I did sit through the first ten minutes. The music is annoying. The atmosphere is annoying. The drama is fake…and annoying. The people? Annoying. Thanks, but no thanks. I’m really not into it and I will not be watching this show. Bring back the housewives! Take these kids to the dump.

 

Final Thoughts

This episode was very slow moving. Nothing really happened. The confrontation with Brandi and Scheana was the highlight and it was pretty inspiring to watch Brandi hand it to her. But the segway to Lisa’s show completely ruined it and made the whole housewives franchise look really, really dumb.

Adriana de Moura Marriage Drama — already married to Frederic?

adtitle

 

 

 

 

It’s come to the attention of many bloggers and entertainment reporters that there might be some lies going on in the steamy city of Miami. This is not the first doubtful thing to come out of  the Housewives franchise and it certainly won’t be the last.

According to bloggers and reporters alike, Adriana de Moura is and has been married to Frederic…since 2008!

Adriana+De+Moura+Frederic+Marq+Tiffany+Co+wu4EK5k633Vl

Adriana de Moura’s storyline on the Miami Housewives centers around her ex husband’s betrayal. Season one we learned he had a hidden, secret family and Adriana recalled the infamous call when the “other wife” called and confronted Adriana. The woman said she was his wife. But impossible, Adriana says, I am his wife.

This man’s name is Roberto Sidi. Apparently, Adriana said that she caught the cheating in 2006. Records indicate that she actually filed for divorce in 2001 and was officially divorced in 2003 (I’m not sure where this source comes from).

To top it off, a marriage license surfaced recently that says that Adriana and Frederic were married in 2008! Kind of blows her whole story line out of the water and makes you think what else is a bunch of malarkey, if Bravo looks into the women they are hiring, or if everything is scripted.

From Miami Herald Blog

Copied from The Miami Herald Blog

We can give The Miami Herald Blog credit for digging up most of the dirt on this one! This is what  Adriana’s publicist had to say:

“Adriana did get divorced in 2003, but her and Roberto tried to work things out and had a common law marriage until 2006. [This explains finding the cheating in 2006, but being actually divorced a few years earlier.] After breaking it off she then met Frederic in 2008. On a romantic whim after dating briefly, Adriana and Frederic went to the clerk’s office on their own with no friends and family, and were married. There was a discrepancy in the certificate – so instead of having the marriage fix [sic] or annulled, they decided to take a step back and hold off until they were truly ready. Adriana and Frederic are planning to have a beautiful (and proper) wedding this spring.”

In addition: “Marriage certificates are not valid by law if there is a typo on it. There was a typo on their certificate. I have no further comments at this time.”

I guess this has to do with Adriana’s maiden name. It’s really ‘Moura’ and not ‘de Moura,’ or something like that.

Should we believe this? Well, I guess that kind of depends on whether you want to.

When the blog reached out to Bravo, publicist Ryan McCormick replied, “We were not aware that they were married.”

Well, with all this going on, we can’t help but ask, does the couple consider themselves married?

marriage twit

There you have it. Whether she sees herself as married or whether she wants to continue the lies, Adriana says they are not married.

Fans, however, are not happy. Many are blaming Bravo and asking Adriana to be taken off the show next season. I, in all honestly, don’t see what the big fuss is all about. If you thought for a second the housewives were still as real as they were back in the day, you are delusional. And in all honesty, how much did you REALLY follow Adriana’s and Frederic’s relationship? Did you REALLY care about that storyline? Sheesh. How many times do we say that a license is “just a piece of paper.”

I’m not condoning lies, but to take it so seriously is taking reality TV…too seriously.

What’s even more shocking to me is Adriana’s age! 47? Looking really, really good.

Miami Season 2 Episode 17 Reunion Pt. 2

titleE17

 

 

 

 

This reunion is kind of everywhere.

 

Not Joe Business

We come back and are talking about Lisa’s party. Did Joanna sleep with Joe Francis? No. No criminals on her plate, thank you very much. Her sister? She won’t speak on her behalf. Ana says Lea brought Joe Francis as a prop and Joanna agrees, saying that Joe Francis knew she would be there. Lea thinks that’s dumb. I, however, do not. It makes complete sense. He knew she was a housewife. The housewives were being filmed. Let’s get some TV time!

 

Hey, Pay Attention to Me!

S2-E17 1

I don’t know why, but Lisa! Omgosh, Lisa! I don’t know what to think of her. I went from hating, to liking, to not caring. At this point, I am over it. She just cares about stupid stuff and says the dumbest things. When asked if there were any regrets, Joanna said she wishes she didn’t drink so much and Adriana wishes she didn’t get physical. But oh, boohoo. Lisa comes around and says no one cares about her feelings! It was her party! And it was ruined! Like c’mon.  Well, Lisa this is all I have to say about that:

boohoo

Karent talks about the article and how it wasn’t her fault. Adriana apologizes about freaking out and apologizes to Joanna for getting to a “low level.” Joanna agrees.

Joanna talks about how her photos were “stealen” for an escort service. In fact, she’s in a lawsuit with two clubs that have done the same thing. Same! Same! Lisa shouts. But hey, shut up, no one cares and no one stopped to listen. Marysol says, “Why don’t these things happen to me?” LOL. That was funny.

Joanna talks about her tickle fetish video. She was young and dumb, she says. Hey, I’m young and dumb but school and the real world has drilled into my head that that shit follows you everywhere so tough luck.

Ana brings up the Joe Francis as a prop thing again. She says he discussed the Joanna confrontation with her and he said that Lea knew what was going to happen. Lea jumped up, diamonds blinding and all. Lea says she’s boring and Ana attacks Lea’s age. “This is not the Old and Restless!” Haha. Karent again says some hallmark BS about experience and age. Sighhhhhhhhhh.

 

Enter Cuban Barbie

Alexia, Cuban Barbie, takes a seat on the couch. Her boobs have a life of their own in this dress. She’s looking like a witch/vampire slayer. But in a super glam glam way.

S2-E17

It’s a heartwarming moment as Alexia talks about her son and Marysol sheds some tears. Lea pats invisible tears. Adriana commends Alexia for being a strong, great mother.

We move onto Peter’s arrest. He hit a homeless man and it was videotaped. She says it’s because of the stress from his brother’s accident. He knows he’s wrong. She starts crying hard and goes on to say that Peter does have his punishments. So then we move on to Karent mentioning Frankie, Alexia’s son, at the venue party. Karent has this moment where she thinks she’s being hardcore or whatever and wants to speak up. But then Alexia says she’s going to speak up too so Karent  should shut up. So she does. LOL.

 

Pointing Fingers

Andddddddd we move onto a montage of how annoying Karent is. I love Marysol’s “carrier pigeon’” title. “Here comes the carrier pigeon swooping in. I unroll the message from her leg and it says ‘you’re in trouble for wearing fur’.” HAHA I love that. So Karent tries to defend herself for always stirring up trouble.  Joanna and Lisa support Karent. The same old.

Moving onto the article in Bimini. Lisa tries to say that she was cornered into telling Karent. Everyone, and I mean even Andy, agreed that it was smart that Alexia took Lisa aside to tell Karent about it. After all, she’s like her only friend. But hey, Lisa wants to blame everyone else. In all seriousness, she really didn’t have to tell Karent right then. Then Lisa tells Alexia not to talk to her like a child. Hard to when you act like one. Okay yeah, definitely over Lisa at this point.

They talk about the rumors about Alexia’s husband being gay. Alexia says everything that comes out of Joanna’s mouth is trash. Wow! Alexia talks about how much she loves her husband and Joanna and Karent mock her for getting emotional.

Marysol and Lea talk about Marysol’s marriage and how Lea put it down for the whole green card thing. Marysol said she was a sucky wife.

Andy asks Lisa about how she met Lenny in Vegas. REALLY don’t care. Moving on. She does say she regrets doing Playboy and thinks it’s rather cheesy. Interesting… Don’t know if I believe it.

Marysol has to pee. Lea turns to Karent and says, “Maybe she wouldn’t have to pee so much if she didn’t drink so much.” Very nice, Lea. That kind of hit the nail in the coffin to me about that one. What a nasty old witch. She really does hide every insult in a laugh then says it’s okay. She used to be one of my favorites…shame.

 

Mama Elsa’s Two Cents

MAMA ELSA! ARRIBA! She doesn’t think Joanna has respect for people. Adriana laughs. And then the best line of the night: “I am a very good friend, but a very bad enemy.” I guess Joanna called her the devil or something and she was very offended. Karent starts saying something and Mama Elsa basically tells her to shut up, saying, “I’m not talking to you, number three!” HAHA.

We go onto Kramer’s dinner party. He has tried calling Mama Elsa to go out and she says that she does not want to see him. Lisa is annoyingly shaking her head because she cannot even accept the fact that some people don’t kiss ass in life. When is doubt, Lisa dances on a poll on the dinner table. No matter what!

More useless talk ensues for a while.

 

Can You Feel the Love Tonight? Me neither.

We end the reunion talking about relationships. Ana still has love for her ex. Marysol is doing good without Phillippe. Adriana is planning the wedding. Joanna and Romain are excited to tie the knot. Karent is glad she’s done with Rodolfo. Lea gets emotional and basically says Ana is off her rocker and she is not going to forget it.

Phew!

S2-E17 2

 

Final Thoughts

This season was definitely ‘stealen’ by Karent and Rodolfo’s fake, annoying relationship. I still love all the old girls minus Lea. Lisa, as we know, was a roller coaster of dislike, like, really dislike. Karent—I wouldn’t care if I never saw or heard about her again. Ana surprisingly got me to like her. Joanna I am very indifferent about. Marysol will always seem like a kind heart to me.

Even though this season was 10x better than the last, I’m not that upset to see it end.

Gregg and NeNe Leakes Engaged…Again! NYE Proposal

neneengagedtitle

 

 

A huge congrats to exes, now  newly engaged, Gregg and Linnethia Leakes! Gregg proposed on New Year’s Eve and NeNe said…yes!

After watching the fall of their marriage on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, we were sure the couple was over. YOU HAVE DONE ME WRONG. Ringing any bells for you?

However, as we watch this season, we realize the old sayings hold true. If you are meant to be together, love will find a way. In Gregg and NeNe’s case, it has! Now we’re hearing different kinds of bells– wedding bells!

Her fans were able to join along in the excitement as she tweeted her way through the night. Chirp, chirp.

She first started off sharing a photo of them celebrating the new year. (From the Leakes–I might add– as if they were a married couple anyway.)

 

neneengaged

Shortly after, she was lead away to a condo full of love.

neneengaged2

neneengaged3

Oh yes, NeNe. It bet it was on.

There was no question whether or not this was a proposal for shortly after NeNe tweeted her answer and left her fans glowing with hearts and little cupids swirling around their heads. (This is read from the down up for all you non-twitter savvy folks.)

neneengaged4

Again, congratulations Gregg and NeNe Leakes! Seems there are a lot of good things coming for many of the housewives this year.

Happy New Year!

2013

 

 

Happy New Year to all!

As we look towards the new year, we want to think about our resolutions, what we hope to achieve, and what we hope to learn. However, there ain’t no future without the past or present.

To honor the upcoming year and all the good things to come, I’ve decided to take some rather angry moments in housewives history and pump it up with some new years fun. Without further adieu, let’s take those frowns upside down.

happynewyearter copy

happynewyearvic copyhappynewyearkenya copy
happynewyearjanda copy

I think someone’s super excited about this new year! That’s some intense dancing.

Also, former DC housewife and sharp tongued Brit, Catherine Ommanney welcomed her daughter Zara Isabella to the world on December 28th. What a great start to a new year.

Adorbs.

Happy New Year everyone! It’s all about new beginnings, love, and happiness. I hope it’s fabulous.

Phaedra Parks, Apollo Nida, and Baby #2

pppregnant

 

 

According to a crap load of websites and blogs, Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida are expecting their second child! While vacationing in the Bahamas during the holidays, Phaedra Parks shared a photo of her belly on the beach.

o87a4h_zps8b379689Looking good!

She has not mentioned a thing on twitter nor are the articles about it very lengthy or detailed. Nevertheless, I, along with the slew of Parks fans, have tweeted their congratulations. This is one of my favorite families in the housewives franchise. The couple acts like a real couple that laughs, fights, and plays together. I’m happy to see this beautiful family grow.

I personally hope it’s a girl that can take on Phaedra’s divalicious style, swag, and of course…donkey booty.

Untitled

Aww, teenage Phaedra.

This happens at an especially inconvenient time for the folks at Bravo with the storyline for the next week’s episode centering around Apollo and Phaedra supposedly getting a “divorce.” Looks like they’ve worked it out, huh? Like really worked it out.

Anyway, congrats to the couple!

RHthumbsup

Wouldn’t it suck if all this was a bunch of malarkey?

 

UPDATE.

On 12/29/12 at about 9 o’clock AM central time Kandi tweeted

kandibby

 

 

which confirms the preggo rumors to be true! Hoorah!

Phaedra then goes on to thank Kandi for being such a good friend and thanks her fans who compliment her on her baby

All the best to this wonderful family!

Miami Season 2 Episode 16

The reunion begins with the usual meet and greet. Andy went around and said hi to everyone.

Lea was shining in diamonds. Ana looked absolutely gorgeous. But Adriana’s dress automatically reminded me of Tre’s dress from the RHONJ reunion. Channeling a little bit of her spunk there, Adriana?

S2-E16

Okay, maybe a little different. But the spunk was still there.

 

The Plastics

We move onto talking about plastic surgery or “enhancements.” Po-ta-toe, Pot-a-toe. Lisa says her husband has only done her breasts and injected her face. The list of all the other things she’s done pre-Lenny was just too long to share. We’d need a couple more parts to the reunion for that. Joanna says she had breast enhancements, Lea says she hasn’t touched her face. Mama Elsa gets mentioned with her unfortunate surgeries.

Now, we move on to the good stuff. Joanna and Romain. Andy heard they broke up. They did, but now they are back together, thanks to her mom! Adriana scoffs. Lies, she says. Publicity stunt. She is so ready with her claws in this reunion. Just the faces she makes while Joanna is speaking lets you know that she will not stay quite for one second.

Joanna v. Adriana is a tough one for me. I honestly don’t dislike either. Adriana is always fun and crazy, which I love. She is a little harsh in the reunion, however. Joanna can be crazy literally and sometimes I want to cringe when she speaks, but she sort of reminds me of a typical girl that we can all relate to. When Andy asks if Joanna thinks Romain is getting a little something something from someone else, Adriana goes on a laughing spree and claps.

Ana makes a point about bullying, saying it’s a huge deal and a serious issue. Adriana and Joanna have no right to call each other bullies. Lisa steps in and says she’s been bullied, but she doesn’t act like a psycho. And then–boom. Joanna says her and Lisa are not friends anymore. Left field, anyone? Lisa didn’t want to take sides and I guess that was the whole thing that split them apart.

S2-E16 2

Lisa is such a tough bug for me. I told you I disliked her in the beginning, which I did. Then I started to like her, which I did. But her whole peacemaker “Hey I’m actually a really smart and really cool and totally calm girl” act is a little forced and honestly a little overdone. She has taken so many roles in this season, it’s hard to tell which she is.

Lea tears up as she tells Adriana she’s basically acting like a lunatic. Which she is.

 

Housewife Hunter #2

Okay, this whole Karent and Rodolfo thing breezed over like it was nothing. Um, excuse me? It was the most ridiculous thing in this season and it caused a bit of drama in Bimini. When Andy asked Karent about it, she used her father’s illness as a buffer to bypass talking about it. Why? Because she knows she looked like a complete idiot the whole time? Because she’d rather comment on other people’s fights than start her own? Remember, she cares when it matters. Eye roll.

By far the best line goes to– drum roll please—Ana! For calling Rodolfo the Mexican Slade. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL. That is so fabulously perfect. Slade is crying on Gretchen’s couch, curling her hair, and picking up her dog’s shit watching this.

Anyway, Karent continues to spout more BS about believing her heart and putting up walls and more mumbo jumbo she read from the Dr. Phil website.

Lea says that she didn’t know everyone was attacking Karent until she saw the show and she was not okay with it. Oooh, baby. Ana is not having it! This is when she pulls up her britches and gets to business. Ana calls her out saying that Lea talked about Karent and she is nothing but a liar that puts on a facade. People drink up her koolaid for some reason and she won’t do it.

The show shows clips of Lea cutting everyone down with a laugh. All the girls say they were hurt by them. Lisa says she didn’t like Lea in the beginning because Lea thought she was an airhead. Wait a minute…She thought a girl whose tagline is “My husband is the number one plastic surgeon in this town and I’m his best creation” and walks around with her breasts up to her chin, and whose claim to fame is sitting her husband’s house…an airhead? NO. Obviously Lisa has more up her sleeve, but she really doesn’t make it easy to like her right off the bat.

Ana v. Lea continues. They cut each other down. Lea bashes Ana’s real estate deals or whatever. Ana doesn’t think Lea is self-made. And at this point, I’m kind of over it.

S2-E16 1

Listen, I like Ana. She is the most real, most confident, most secure woman I’ve seen in most of the housewives, locations and all. So, if she is going after Lea for something, I have to believe she has a reason for it. I like Lea only for her humor. But, in the end, Ana wins my heart and I wonder where this fire comes from.

Not to say she isn’t being ridiculous at times with comments about Lea’s son, but she is angry and there is a reason. I just don’t truly know all of it. EDIT. When you assume, you make an ass out of ‘u’ and ‘me.’ And that’s very true in this case. I assumed Ana was attacking Lea’s child. With a lot of times in the housewives franchise, you find yourself with a lack of information or totally withheld from any. Ana was not attacking Lea’s son. She was using Lea’s own words (socially awkward) that were used against her daughters.

According to Ana, “She said more than once that my girls were inappropriate potty mouths that will have trouble in social circles if they didn’t change their language – and also that the apples didn’t fall far from the tree. So when I said they weren’t socially awkward – that is what I was referring to and not her son who I have never exchanged 2 words with.”

Ana’s relationship with her ex and with her children is one I find very open and honest. I would like to have something like that in my future.

Maybe we should point the fingers at ourselves and say we’re assholes for jumping to the conclusion that Lea’s son would be deemed socially awkward by someone else.

Looks like Ana is slowly becoming one of my favorite housewives…and you know what I like to do about that? Buy their cookbooks of course!

 

Same Drama, Different Episode

We move onto Marysol v. Lea. This doesn’t really go anywhere either. It’s the same as the episodes. It’s about stuff that we haven’t seen and frankly don’t give a shit about. Ana tries to defend Marysol and Marysol doesn’t wait it. She doesn’t want to be made out to be the poor, unfortunate soul. Lea makes this outrageous accusation that if it wasn’t for Ana, her and Marysol would be friends. UM WHAT? Marysol says that’s stupid, which it is.

Lisa, brains and all, doesn’t get why the eff it’s such a big deal. Marysol makes good points. Her business is a big deal. It’s her life and she had girls to pay and girls who rely on the company. Lisa sits back because she realizes she doesn’t understand what it’s like to really work for something and have people depend on you. You freaked out because someone pushed someone into a pool at your party. It’s myyyy partyyy and I’ll cryyyy if I wanttt toooo. I think Marysol’s got a point here.

There’s a little tidbit about Adriana’s “beat me to the tweet.” Does anyone else hate these little 2 minute scenes as much as I do? Completely useless.

 

Me, Myself, and My Vodka

We move onto a segment of Joanna completely embarrassing herself with drinks. Does she think she has a problem? No. Does Adriana? Yes.

She calls her evil and that the truth is in the wine in Latin or something. They go at it like cats for a little bit– same old, same old.

Then it switches over to Adriana’s large mouth. She insults Polish immigrants, which I personally took offense to. But hey, Joanna makes fun of Adriana and Brazil’s slums. Tit for tat. Do two wrongs really make a right?

Adriana suggests that Joanna is a racist by some very vague tweets. That’s a very large stretch there.

They show Adriana’s and Joanna’s physical fight, which cracks me up every time! It’s so hilarious. Just the faces they make are hilarious. They continue to bicker. Meow, meow. Hiss, hiss.

She goes onto this dumb Ho-anna stuff. I guess Joanna said Adriana speaks Spanglish, so she called her Ho-anna. It was something dumb like that.

 

Final Thoughts

This reunion was highly, highly disappointing.

Was anyone as bored as me? It was the same stuff that happened throughout the season. The whole Rodolfo thing never reached a conclusion. Adriana and Joanna went at it and didn’t make sense half the time.

Over it.
