Daily Tea: Weekend Open Forum!



*Please remember not to spoil episodes of TV shows, movies, etc in the comments. Many people binge watch shows these days and do not expect to find spoilers in the Open Forum, including me thanks! *

We are just over half way through the three day Memorial Day Weekend. I thought I’d put up an open forum so we could share what we are up too. I am hopeful that I still have time to get some things done in and out of the house before the weekend is over!  I spent my morning (errr…afternoon) doing some research for one of two posts I have been working on. I will put up some RHOA tea  later tonight after I get some house and garden stuff done and maybe get some sun on my face! I’ve been holding a few things to triple check my sources.

I will be having a BLT in a bit. I admit I am having a hard time getting decent bread for this purpose. There is a German bakery practically in walking distance so I really need to get around to checking them out I suppose. My Gerber daisies a blooming like crazy for the most part. I have them in three pots and one is one of those concrete pots on a stand and it is not big enough to hold all the water they need. I finally realized why these usually die on me. They need a ton of water every dayum day. So fart I am keeping them all alive.  Continue reading

Blind Item: “Sir, You Are no Gentleman!”

This married reality show cast member is not at all what he appears. He claims to have a variety of businesses on the show; however, he holds no trademarks on any of the products and businesses he pushes on the show.  In addition, he has a number of financial and legal problems including a history of foreclosures and bad debts. I have no idea if he even has a job, but it certainly not the one he portrays on the show.  His business partners are equally as fake.  Word on the street is he runs with a few of his cast mates who enjoy partying to the fullest.

In fact, I’ve been told he completely missed the birth of one of his children while out on a two day bender.  He’s not a southerner, let alone a southern gentleman. It’s all scripted TV.

Teen Mom 2 Catch Up Recaps! David Really Is Janelle’s Worst Boyfriend Ever

Teen Mom Chelsea

You know what I really want to do on this long weekend? Recap Teen Mom 2! No really. The past couple of weeks I’ve been super busy working on boring tech stuff with the site and it has caused me to let some of the lesser viewed recaps fall by the wayside.  I have two episodes ( plus the aftershows) on my DVR and I have been dying to watch the one from two weeks about because Barbara is going to go head to head with Janelle’s felon boyfriend of the week!  I remember some commenter having a minor meltdown about me not liking the housewives shows anymore. She felt all betrayed that I had been grudging blogging when I was over the series. The fact of the matter is, it is now my job to recap shows that get the most reaction (views) from you guys. And yes, there are times I’d like to drop out of a franchise here and there, or simply take a night off and watch something else that interests me more, but I also like to eat. And buy wine. So I do it anyway. Also, I usually like the seasons for the first ten episodes but really Munchausen and fake cancer can become quite tiresome. And then there are shows like this I am dying to get to buy are a lower priority for the website like Teen Mom!

I’m going to combine two episodes like it was one big show and include any interesting things from the after shows.


Chelsea and Cole are going out with friends to a concert. Aubree has a responsible babysitter, probably her mom. And they are going to meet Jason Aldean, a country singer I think. For having VIP passes they had some mediocre seats.

Aubree has apparently told Chelsea she can’t see the board at school. Chelsea feels bad because she didn’t need glasses until high school. In actuality, elementary kids are not given enough eye tests. At least in the county I taught in. It was like pulling teeth to get my kids an eye test in first grade because they had one before kindergarten. The only test in certain grades and clearly I don’t know what I am talking about when I send a kid to the nurse for a test. Because “I send too many.”  Aubree has a fit about getting eyedrops. Chelsea is way too permissive with the meltdown. She also picked out hideous pink glasses.

Cole takes Aubree to a father daughter dance because Adam doesn’t show up! Aubree wanted to go with Cole and Adam. Aubree calls Cole her other daddy. Aw.

#60DaysIn Jaime Lind Speaks Out About The Reunion

60 days Miriam


Jaime has done another video (after a bit of prodding from me) about the finale.  It’s an hour long this time. For the previous review of her videos click here.

Jaime agrees with me that Tami and Barbra have not changed and they showed their true colors on the reunion show. She says that after all the people on the show left F-Pod she and a few of the other girls were pulled out of F-Pod and sent back to D-Pod on the girl’s side of the jail.

FOR ALL 60 Day In Season One Posts Click Here!

Jaime said that she got along with Tami and Barbra for the most part while incarcerated. She was the closest to Maryum. She is still in touch with Maryum. They email and video chat each other frequently. Jaime was very upset that Tami and Barbra said that Maryum only thinks about herself. She’s a mentor to Jaime and lots of other women including Nicole and Paulette from the F-Pod. She gives them a lot of positive support.  Jaime points out that both Barbra and Tami are basically unemployed.

Jaime said that there is NOT  Ex-Lax on commissary. The Sheriff and Chief lied about that. Jaime says you have to get that from a nurse. Perhaps the male inmates have access and the females don’t because females with eating disorders often use it abusively? That is just me guessing because I see no reason for the cops to lie about that. Continue reading

Memorial Day Weekend TV Marathons 2016

Memorial Day
This year’s Memorial Day weekend marathons are fairly lackluster. I’ve complied a list of the ones I could find below. I strongly recommend UnREAL (10am – 2:30pm, Lifetime) if you didn’t see the first season. This will give you a taste of it. Season 2 starts June 6th which is a night with way too much competition. It’s a scripted show about the making of a show like The Bachelor and all the behind the scenes stuff is fascinating. A lot of it is over the top but the viewer has to decide where the real line is drawn. You don’t need to watch season one to understand season two. But it would help to learn about the lives of the production team. Everyone else will be new characters, like a new season of the show.

American Ninja Warrior is not the sort of show I normally watch.  But it is strangely addictive and is on Esquire pretty much all weekend.  The Librarian Marathon on TNT Sunday is a show worth watching. I can’t really explain it at this time of night/morning.  Naked and Afraid is a great show.  Dating Naked is a stupid show that is fun to half watch while doing other things. I love Catfish. It’s stupid fun.  Check out the all the options below. I purple penned a few suggestions. Also you can click the links for posts on that particular show. (Not many) The linked shows will probably all be purple by default.

WWHL With Dorinda Medley and Paula Abdul

WWHL with Dorinda Paula Abdul
Andy’s tie is the wonkiest it has ever been.  It looks like while Dorinda was doing her twirl in her shiny jumpsuit for Andy, someone made him try to straighten it. It is back to being the normal amount of wonky now. Does this drive anyone else crazy?

Andy plays the dog pooping on Dorinda’s rug repeatedly. He is such a gross person. Andy says that next week is one of the top five epsiodes of housewives of all time and the entire thing takes place over two and a half hours at Dorinda’s house in the Berkshires

Despite the Twitter war between Dorinda and Ramona  after last week’s episode, Dorinda says that she and Ramona have “moved on.”  I really don’t think their friendship will ever be what it was before Dorinda came on the show.

The preview of next week shows Bethenny being a raving lunatic toward Luann and accusing her of not owning up to all the billions of people she has slept with. First of all, Luann copped to fucking Rey this week. So she is owning up to it. Secondly, why does Luann have to disclose all of her lovers to Bethenny or anyone else?  Who the hell constantly wants a running tally of their friends sexual escapades? If Luann wanted you to know, she would share them with you. Perhaps the reason she doesn’t is because you are so damn judgmental, Bethenny.  Luann should berate Bethenny about who she is sleeping with.
