Nene’s Blog This Week Needed Some Pictures…

RHOA Cynthia friend contract


Nene’s blog is below. She seems to have dictated it to someone who passed fourth grade grammar. In third person.

It always amazes me how these ladies like to point fingers. It’s always somebody else’s fault rather than admitting, “Yeah I was wrong,” or, “Maybe I shouldn’t have said that at that time,” or, “Maybe I wasn’t there for her because I had my own problems going on.” It’s always easy to point the finger at your girl NeNe and hope that no one will see their true colors!

Nick Gordon Films Dr. Phil Episode; Bobbi Kristina’s 22nd Birthday Passes

Nick Gordon Dr Phil“In a national television exclusive, Dr. Phil conducts an emotionally charged intervention with Bobbi Kristina Brown’s boyfriend Nick Gordon, offering Gordon the treatment he appears to so desperately need as he battles drug and alcohol addiction.

“With his mother Michelle at his side, Gordon expresses the severe pain, mental anguish and panic attacks he says he has been suffering since Brown was found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her home in January and over the tragic loss of Whitney Houston three years ago.

Will he accept Dr. Phil’s offer for help?” Continue reading

Claudia Jordan Takes Over For Porsha Williams On Dish Nation

Oh Hey. My exclusive sources are reporting that someone got caught up with a trick and had to call in sick at Dish Nation yesterday, allegedly. Rickey Smiley tried to find someone with a similar mug shot collection, but sadly he had to settle for the beautiful crime free Claudia Jordan. Check out Claudia doing a very last minute substitution for Porsha. Should I check and see if she got arrested again yesterday? Will Porsha show up tonight? Tune in to find out!

Be sure to tweet @DishNation and @RickeySmiley  to let them know if you want to see more Claudia!

Jodi Arias Jury Has Completed Their Deliberations. Hung Jury

Security sets up perimeters for media interviews outside courthouse.

Security sets up perimeters for media interviews outside courthouse.

After about 26 1/2  hours of deliberations, the Jodi Arias Jury is ready to share the outcome of all of their hard work. The folks who have been following this trial in the court room are all hopeful that an actual verdict has been reached one way or another. While I certainly hope that is true, once the jury announced they were hung on Tuesday, it was clear to me that the second sentencing trial would end the same way as the first.  Trying to get 12 people to agree to the same sentence on this case seemed like an endeavor unlikely to result in unanimity.

If the jury returns and says they are hung, then there will be no sentencing today.  It seems that the attorneys will have an opportunity to make their cases to Judge Stephens concerning whether or not Jodi should be eligible for release in 25 years.  That will not happen today. That will happen in a few weeks, the time frame varies depending on who is reporting. Hopefully it will only be a couple of weeks. The judge has up to 30 days to rule. Continue reading

Brandi Glanville Is Profoundly Stupid.


RHOBH Stupid People

Brandi’s Blog is up and I am going to run out of purple ink this week. Seriously. Brandi’s loons apparently have her convinced that her behavior is perfectly normal. It’s insane. She will be fine as long as she just reads the one or two sites that write blog posts as if she and Kim are not two embarrassing addicts on a show with comparatively very normal successful people.

Hyperbole: HORRIFIC

Jaws drop in stunned horror if I reply, ”I’ll knock your teeth out” (empty words thrown out when under verbal attack on RHOBH). Admittedly, not my greatest moment, but you try putting up with some of the “ladies” of Beverly Hills (or wherever they pretend to live). I will sincerely work on other ways to get crazy people yelling in my face to back up. Anyway, it’s called hyperbole, Kyle. Yeah, smart people know what that is. Kyle, look it up.

This is an example of hyperbole, Brandi. “Well now, one winter it was so cold that all the geese flew backward and all the fish moved south and even the snow turned blue. Late at night, it got so frigid that all spoken words froze solid afore they could be heard. People had to wait until sunup to find out what folks were talking about the night before.” (Paul Bunyon) See, smart people know that hyperbole is exaggerating a story to draw in an audience.”

This is an example of a threat of bodily harm. “I’ll knock your teeth out.”  In California, criminal threats can be charged whether or not  you  actually intend to execute the threat as a misdemeanor or a felony. Making threats to injure someone is not “hyperbole” if you later say you were just kidding.

As for the ladies pretending to live somewhere, everyone except for you (and possibly Kim) lives in Beverly Hills or Malibu.  You live in the valley in a rental. Continue reading

Only Three More Episodes of Empire! Let’s Chat!

One big happy family?

One big happy family?


Okay, I just finished watching last week’s episode of Empire. I love this show which is why I don’t recap it and save it to watch when I have a chance to take an hour away from the blog. I know y’all wanted a place to talk about the show, so here you go.

First of all,  while I do love this show, there are some things that just seem to come out of no where. The writing seems all over the place. It is like the writer didn’t realize the show was going to blow up so rather than just going with the original outline of the show, now they are changing things up and bringing in big name singers. I hate when shows or companies try to fix things are not broken.

Now it seems they are trying to sell music on iTunes. I love me some Jussie Smollett. We have seen him show up here and there in bit parts on network dramas, and it is great that he is getting his big break but I don’t need to have the music played over and over on every episode. It should be handled more like Nashville, the songs  stand on their own and at the end of episode, they tell you where to go download them.  It makes me like the songs less.

On this episode,  I think Cookie took it too easy on Naomi Campbell’s character. That cougar needed to be handled. But, I guess she has more serious issues at the moment. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Recap: I’ll Have What She’s Having

RHOBH lisa lisa eileenOkay I know already this one is going to take awhile. I did no preloading and I didn’t have the First Look on tape.

The Dinner From Hell

Wow, it seems we go straight to dinner! But first Lisa Rinna fills in Eileen and Lisa Vanderpump. Yolanda wants to start the conversation talking about her daughter. Yolanda is trying to get the ladies to open up and talk about real things. Lisa Rinna is weepy. When Lisa was 6 her 21 year old daughter died of a drug and alcohol overdose. Lisa is worried about her own daughters family genetics with alcoholism.  That was one of the deepest producer driven plots to try and get to Kim I think we have ever seen, and clearly it works. Lisa tells Kim she is sorry if she has come off as overly invested in her business. She just has a lot of traumatic history on the subject.t Kim looks at her with an evil, dismissive face.

Kim begins to go in on Lisa and say that she has been sober for three years and in three years her friends and family have never seen her like that. Lisa says she has seen her like that. Kim says that Lisa has gone around to everyone to discuss her. Kim shakes her finger at Eileen’s face and says. “you too! you too!” Eileen calmly tells Kim not to point her finger at her. Lisa says she is concerned about her.

Kim says she is concerned about Lisa and her situation at home. Eileen steps in to defend Lisa and Kim is jabbing her finger toward Eileen saying, “Shut your fucking mouth! I’ve had enough of you, you beast!”  Kyle is already crying. Kim is pissed that Kyle didn’t defend her on the plane to Lisa. Kim makes fun of how Kyle curled up in a little ball in her plane seat. Kim starts in on Kyle saying that Brandi defends her more than Kyle does. Then she tells Kyle that Kathy would never act like this, she would have her back like a real sister. Lisa Rinna tells Kim that it is not okay to talk to people like that. Kim says “Oh really, why don’t you have a piece of bread and maybe you’ll calm down a little.” That’s interesting. I thought that Kim didn’t remember anything about the Poker Party night. Yet, she remembers being told to eat something to try and get her sobered up. Continue reading

WWHL With Golnesa Gharachedaghi and Reza Farahan




I was thinking perhaps Reza’s whole Gay Ghandi thing might mean he was going to be edited as less of a prick this season. Well, that remains to be seen but people are not edited on Watch What Happens Live and he wastes no time in being a prick.

To be fair GG started it by talking about how the ring they showed on the show was not the ring the couple is currently using. It seems that something happened to that one and there is much smaller one in its place. At least that was the implication. Reza says he knows he will be uninvited to the wedding by the end of WWHL and GG is not being kind to the bride and groom either. It would appear that all of the rumors about Mike have resulted in pretty much no one speaking to him. I knew this back when filming was happening but I thought by now a year later that everyone had probably made up as the usually do. It would seem that did not happen. Continue reading

VERDICT IN JODI ARIAS CASE? Not Really Jury is Hung…

Jodi looks happy in court today.

Jodi looks happy in court today.

Remember when I predicted the jury would come back on Tuesday after lunch? Well it’s Tuesday and the jury came back in the Jodi Arias trial. Remember when I said they will probably not agree? We they don’t. In some states this is when the judge reads something called an Allen Charge to the jury. That is basically the court saying, “Look you bunch of fuckwits, do you have any idea how much money the state has spent on this shit show? Get yer asses back in the room and don’t come out until you all agree. I don’t care what you agree on, but you best by God agree on something or else you are all a bunch of worthless maggots!”

But this is Arizona. Arizona doesn’t allow the Allen Charge, which clearly I paraphrased and modified a tiny bit above. But many states feel like the Allen Charge, or “dynamite charge” makes the jury feel forced to ignore their solemn beliefs on the situation (normally guilt or innocence, but we are in Arizona) and reach a verdict. The fear is that hold outs would feel compelled to find someone they believe is innocent to be guilty. So Arizona gives a watered down version that says something like, ” Oh hey you special little snowflakes. I know you are trying ever so hard to reach a verdict. I am going to give each of you a gold star! Your opinion is your opinion and you don’t have to change it. But hey, if you feel like it, why don’t you identify areas of agreement and disagreement and relate to law.  If you still don’t agree you can write me another note and I can answer your questions. No pressure. We have all the time and money in the world to wait for you. Do some yoga. Meditate. Write a poem about your feelings and let us know. *smooches*” Continue reading

Shahs of Sunset Season Premiere: I am Gay Ghandi!

Shahs of Sunset Season 4

Shahs of Sunset Season 4

I just realized how much I’ve missed this show.  I hate that the production strike delayed things so long because this season is supposed to be super good and filled with drama!  Perhaps the wait will give the presumed bride to be a bit of time to reconsider her decision?  I mean take a page from Reza and his fiancé  who are not in a hurry to marry.

Reza and Asa are going gold shopping. I am not sure where this store is, but I want to find it. Reza is buying a Rolex and he will get a better deal than what they are saying on air for promotional consideration (there is more of that on this show than any other) still. I am surprised those watches are only $35K.

Anyway, this is all to say that Asa parents are moving in with her while she has their house renovated. And Reza’s man’s parents are coming to town or something. Sorry. I was distracted by the gold.


Mike drops by his parents with chocolates and champagne shows them the engagement ring he bought for Jessica. Continue reading

Vanderpump Rules Recap: Dethroned

Pump Rules finale pink motel

Okay, it’s time for the finale so I am making some adjustments to recap this live. I took a shower, and put on clean jammies in honor of the first clean sheets night of 2015 (I’ve been sleeping on the couch mostly). After this and Shahs I will likey pile up in my nice clean bedroom for the night and deal with GiGi (and Reza I think, not Kristen :( ) in the morning/afternoon.

It’s time for the annual calendar shoot as all restaurants have each year. The location is cool this year. It’s The Pink Hotel which is so cute and 1950s that it would not surprise me if Lisa buys it before the episode is over.  James is super hot in the photo shoot. Yes, little Europeon boy James.  He photos very well.  I want those one piece 1950s swimsuits. Sort of. I mean if I have to wear a swimsuit.

Sandoval and Jax are always in a lovers quarrel for these things. Scheana just let Sandoval know that Jax is saying he slept with Miami girl.  that was sweet of her to do right before they have to pose together. Scheana tell Ariana what Jax said about Miami Girl on a break in filming but Ariana doesn’t believe Sandoval would lie or cheat. LOLOLOL. Um, okay. So he would cheat with you but now on you. I see.  Ariana says she texted with Tom all night.  She says that Facetime “didn’t work” in his hotel room.  Yeah, I dated a guy once whose IM that he was on all day long with me in town “didn’t work” on his work computer he took on business trips.  Scheana points out that Eddie would text Brandi a lot when they were dating. Ariana says she is not stupid and she is smarter tan anyone she ever met in her life.  Ariana tells Scheana  she is sure Tom didn’t cheat. Scheana wisely says she will not bring it up ever again.
