We start with everyone headed to the big Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce party celebrating the 100th anniversary of the city. Carlton tries to play the peacemaker between Yolanda and Lisa by pulling Yo aside and trying to talk some sense into her.
Brandi and Kyle’s talking heads are ridiculous. Kyle says, “It didn’t have to get ugly, that was in Lisa’s hands.” What exactly is Lisa supposed to do after she denied ridiculous allegations and everyone at the table starts jumping in and attacking her? I think leaving for the Four Seasons was the most polite thing she could have done.
Yolanda is the first to approach Lisa at the party. It was the typical fake smile, fake kiss, Beverly Hills crapola. The Kyle descends. Lisa says she was sorry that she had to leave early in Puerto Rico, but it was an impossible situation. Yolanda is trying to take the crown for stupidest talking head pretending she was worried about Lisa and Ken who could have been dead on the side of the road. Seriously, you drive someone away from an event and then you are made at them for not kissing you goodbye? Shut your lemon hole, Yolanda. Yolanda saw on Instagram that Lisa and Ken were just down the road actually enjoying themselves and she’s pissed about that. Ken brings Lisa a glass of wine quickly greets Yolanda and moves on. Yolanda claims that she and Lisa didn’t have an issue in Puerto Rico. Must be the Lyme Brain talking.
Yolanda thinks Lisa and Ken owe them an apology and an explanation! Continue reading

So what is Ramona on? Seriously, she comes out all hyper active and smiling and knocking shit over and talking a mile a minute. I’ll have what she is having please. I’m still working up to getting in the shower. Anyway, Ramona seems way more excited to see Bethenny than Bethenny is to see Ramona. Ramona says that she is the voice of reason this year on RHONY and that is something that we will all have to see to believe.
Bethenny says she always thought Ramona was the biggest asset to the show because she is half nuts. Ramona says she is not nuts, she is fun. And I roll my eyes as grown folks want to waste time over word choices.
Ramona says that even though she and Luann have never really hit it off, Luann will be seen as more likeable this season. As for Aviva, Ramona says she hates Bethenny for getting Aviva involved with the show. Aviva and Ramona make up on the first episode as Ramona tries to be more of a peacemaker, but things get pretty terrible with Aviva as the show goes on. #LegRollsAcrossFloorInPublic Continue reading
I am not recapping RHOBH on time tonight because I just have to watch this train wreck of a show. This is by far the worst/best season ever. The season with Ben was pretty bad in a similar way. I didn’t really get into the the Sean and whatshername episode last season with the whole born again virgin theme. But just to refresh your memory or explain this season to those of you with the sense not to watch, here is where we are.
One the first night the girl he chose for the first impression rose came very close to rejecting it. Her gut was telling her that she was not interested. But she took it because, well, free trips to many cool countries…
At some point, even free first class travel all over the world was not enough to keep the first impression chick around. She’s from some other country and a professional opera singer and really didn’t need ABC to fly her all over the place with a bunch of crazy women and a moron. She dumped him because he was stupid. Or whatever nice way she put it. Whatever. She was highly educated and he is…. um..not. Sometimes it is hard to gauge the intellect of a foreign man because if they say stupid shit, you can blame it on a language barrier depending on how hot they are. He wasn’t really hot enough to make up for the intellectual deficient.
Then then my home girl the Atlanta prosecutor, and presumably the next bachelorette, dumped him right after their fuck card night. This happens when they are down to three or four choices and dude gets to test drive the girls and factor in their love making abilities into the equation. He said something to her that she would not even repeat on air and left.
On tonight’s show, one of the girls tried to bail before the final rose because he told her in a moment when they were not miked that he didn’t feel they knew each other well, but he sure liked fucking her the other night. Actually, now that I think about it, what the Atlanta chick left over was Pablo saying something about using his fuck card on Claire to her while they were having their test drive date.
Now we have Nikki, crying because she is not sure Juan Pablo knows who she is. It’s a total shit storm and I can’t look away.
Is anyone watching this? Both girls cried their eyes out after their final dates with him . I am going to need to talk to y’all when this is over!
So, I feel somewhat obligated to recap last night’s RHOA; however, I don’t have much to say about it. Maybe I am just burning out, but I thought it was a pretty boring episode. So if it okay, I’m just going to toss our some random thoughts.
Phaedra and Apollo seem to hate each other more than usual. Phaedra hasn’t seemed like she is getting any in several seasons. I would assume sex is probably the only useful quality that Apollo has. If they don’t even have that going on, I just don’t see why they are together at all. Also, who gives small children a bottle of cleaning solution and a rag as a toy?
Is there no end to the amount of talking heads Phaedra does about Kenya being a whore? She is still carrying on about Kenya and Apollo horse playing around the pool from LAST SEASON! She needed to have a deadly serious conversation with Apollo about that at the time and end the discussion. This is just making her look like she is insecure in her marriage and that Kenya is a huge threat. Kenya must be feeling very satisfied with the amount of thought and energy that Phaedra spends on her.
Why did we need to hear from Kordell on his thoughts on the divorce? Why was Peter acting like the male Wendy Williams interviewing Kordell about his marriage? Who does that? It was like two little old hens gossiping at a PTA meeting! Continue reading

Demetria has SEVEN YEARS in as a blogger. AND two successful books. And she is more fabulous than anyone on the show. I think she is the bomb. If you don’t, clearly there is something wrong with you. The End.
So y’all know I get in a bad headspace sometimes. There is something going on the universe, as ‘rica would say. The ghetto is very restless. I am what I call, “in the hole.” Which means lots of very self destructive behavior and self medication. Apparently there is a knife wielding man in my neighborhood whose girlfriend attempted to flee to my house. I don’t open my door to NO BOD EE. EVER if I don’t know you. I accidently ran into one of my lawn guys at the beer store who convinced me to let him clean up my yard. He told me her whole story after she TRIED TO OPEN MY DOOR.
I just want to pull the covers over my head. But I want you to have a place to talk about tonight’s RHOA despite my lack of ability to recap it.
Plus I already know what is going to be y’alls big ass deal of the week. Y’all are WAY more into WORDS than I am. I was raised with the “sticks and stones” philosophy. I’ve been called every name in the book. My teachers thought it was fascinating that I was raised in Libya, so they always included it in my introductions on the first day. This inevitably resulted in me being deemed the “sand nigger.” Sadly, by that point in my young life that was the least of my fucking problems. I could give a shit about words.. I bring this up to say that someone said something about Nene Leakes presenting herself as a “coon show” and the PC police most all of whom I suspect to be white, having some sort of hissy fit. Do not tell me what to moderate. I am generally aware of what is posted on my blog. I have said NUMEROUS times myself that Nene Leakes is pure coonery and buffoonery for Bravo and NBCUniversal. It is what it is. Continue reading

Lisa’s Vanderpump’s Bravo Blog this week is pretty interesting. But what is even more interesting is what she doesn’t say. See if you can figure out what is missing…
About Kim and Mauricio…
I do believe that if you state categorically, denying the accusation, as I did to Kyle saying”I did not see the magazines when we were at Brandi’s house.” I was baffled, but still defending myself. To then keep perpetually interrogating me with the same question — well at that point that is tantamount to being called a liar. I should only have to answer it once. When I see Mauricio calling me a “f—ing bitch” on the beach over a rumor from the trustworthy Brandi, that hurts. Kim had only heard it from Brandi too. She wasn’t there. . . but was acting as if she was a viable witness. Then in an interview, for Kim to say she was glad we were gone — that spoke volumes.
She basically calls Brandi an untrustworthy bitch, and says how hurt she was by Mauricio’s comment. She points out that Kim was not even at Brandi’s house and had no idea what she was blathering on about.
When we left that hotel, after Kim had been pretty abusive with no regret, we knew to stay or inform them that we were exhausted by the unrelenting accusations and wanted to leave it would result in an even more complicated scenario. Continue reading
This season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Brandi Glanville was drunk on camera more often than not. It seems that her drinking was causing so much attention that we really weren’t paying that much attention to Carlton. Well, there were other reasons that we were not paying attention to Carlton, but Brandi was at least one of the side show distractions.
I did find it odd that Carlton and Brandi decided to go to their pole dancing class seen drunk, resulting in the two of them arriving at Kim’s party reenacting David Hasselhoff’s hamburger eating scene on the sidewalk outside of Kim’s home. Continue reading
Sorry, I am just out of it today, I was up when the sun came up, exhausted and brain dead and just could not go to bed. Thank you all so much for hitting the tip jar yesterday I don’t want to forget anyone. I’m having tech issues and really need to get out and buy a new laptop. Life just seems overwhelming at the moment,
Anyway, Nene is on Kimmel so I am watching. Okay she is the last guest and I am exhausted so I am going to make this quick. She strutted out in an all crème/white outfit looking good! Nene immediately addresses her “exotic dance” experience and says she has soul so she is going to bring it. Nene is already attacking the front runners who are clearly the not one but TWO gold medal winning Olympic ice dancers. She says she has soul and they don’t. Nene is already trash talking. SIGH. I don’t think anyone in the mix to win even knows she is on the show. She says she is training four hours a day… hmmm six is the norm… My TV cut out and when it came back she was talking about the potential to switch and talking about Max. I don’t think she has to worry about America pairing Nene with Max. Continue reading
You gots a pretty mouf, Juicy…
Here is the basic (or complicated depending how you choose to look at it) breakdown of Juicy Joe’s Plea deal. Remember what I tell you, despite the nimrods in comments who like to argue with me, the charges that JOE pleads to are very important with regard to his potential deportation. The immigration court system is a whole nuther bailiwick. Despite the wailing and whining of some, the immigration system is very backlogged and dysfunctional, particularly under the current administration. We use the Mexipult to fire some Mexicans back over the border, only to have them return time and time again, but deporting someone over the pond is costly and a pain in the ass. This is why our immigration courts focus mostly on drug offenses and those who are a “danger to the community.” But hey, it is Fat Tuesday and I am here writing about some Real Housewives going to prison while drinking on an empty stomach, so if you want to argue with me, I should be available to insult your intelligence in comments in a couple hours.
Meanwhile, let’s start by looking at what Giuseppe plead guilty to. Hmm, I am already confused by the count numbers which don’t seem to match up to the ones I used for the explanation of Teresa’s charges. Nonetheless here is what Joe pled guilty to.
Count One: CONSPIRACY to commit mail and wire fraud Max 20 Years /$250K fine
Count Fifteen: Concealment of Assets. Max Five Years /$250K fine
Count Twenty-Two: False Oaths Max Five Years /$250K fine
Count Thirty-Six: False Declarations Max Five Years/$250K fine
Count Thirty-Seven: Failure to File Income Tax Max One Year/$25K fine Continue reading
I fully admit to wearing down at this point from reading news reports and legal documents today. However, here are the terms and conditions of Teresa’s Plea Deal. I will work on Joe’s next.
Teresa has agreed to pay $200,000 back to the IRS prior to her sentencing date of July 8, 2014 as partial satisfaction of her debt. She is also required to refile all of her taxes from 2000 through 2011 with all necessary documentation. She is required to make necessary payments for all affected tax years prior to her sentencing date. In the event she is unable to make such payments in full, she must set up a mutually agreed upon plan with the IRS. There is much discussion for forfeiture of assets related to the crimes, which would be her properties, as far as I can determine.
Oddly, her individual plea also includes a clause that states if SHE is not a US citizen, her plea deal COULD make her subject to immigration proceedings which MAY cause her to be deportable. (I haven’t read Joe’s plea yet, it may just be that put that in there for both of them as sort of a legal boilerplate sort of thing.)
The FEDS agree to drop charges 2-14 16-21 and 26-35. Tre pled guilty to Count 1, Count 15, Count 23 and Count 36 for a total of four counts.
Count One: Conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. Maximum Sentence 20 years/ $250K Fine
Count 15 : Bankruptcy Fraud- Concealment Maximum Sentence 5 years./ $250K Fine
Count 23 : Bankruptcy Fraud- False Oaths Maximum Sentence 5 years./ $250K Fine
Count 36: Failure to make a Tax Return Maximum Sentence 5 years./ $250K Fine Continue reading
UPDATE: I just wanted to clear something up that I am clearing up now while sifting through the day’s comments. I do not think Nene is lazy AT ALL. I think she has been one of the best hustlers of “her brand” on any housewives show. This is another example of her people hustling for her… she is great at HUSTLING GREAT OPPORTUNITIES. She is even better at fucking them up. She is also a quitter when things get tough. And DWTS is fucking HARD. Like BOOT CAMP hard. Nene does not have that level of physical endurance. This will be the death of her career. It’s like me saying I am going to sign up for Navy Seal BUD/S training to defend you all from evil. She’s going to ring out. That’s all I am saying.
We’ve heard the rumors, likely leaked by Nene herself, that Nene is going to be on Dancing With The Stars, and this morning my email inbox was full of readers of TamaraTattles.com lamenting the official announcement. I for one am thrilled that Nene has been asked to be on DWTS! This is the best career ending move we could have hoped for, y’all! Now we just need to start a pool to see how long she hangs in there before she ”drops out for medical reasons!”
I think the current record is one week of practice and never even appearing on the show, held by Vincent Pastore of the Sopranos. Vincent just copped to it being to tough within the first week of rehearsals and never saw a single episode. Will Nene Leakes make it farther than Vincent Pastore?
Well, let’s see how Nene performs under difficult filming circumstances. As Dr. Phil says, “Past behavior is the best indicator of future behavior.” Continue reading
