I have been super tired and fuzzy-brained today and I had no idea why until someone mentioned that it is hot as balls today! Um, duh. I have now drawn all the curtains and turned on more fans in an attempt to get the inside temperature below 80 degrees. I overshare this to say, my brain is not fully functional, but I am going to try to do a quick catch up post for Botched, the new reality show for Paul Nassif and Terry Debrow to fix bad plastic surgery.
It is just starting and I hate it already. It looks like the usual fame whores on every plastic surgery show ever. I may be out before the opening montage rolls.
I can’t with Ken Doll. I thought y’all told me this was a good show. Um, how to boobs grow together? I don’t see the problem with this woman’s nose. Continue reading
Neither Terry Dubrow or Paul Nassif are strangers to reality TV. In addition to their participation in the Real Housewives franchise, both have previously been on reality shows about plastic surgery. This will be Paul’s fifth plastic surgery show and Terry’s third. I can’t believe it has been ten years since the train wreck known as The Swan was on. If you were fortunate enough not to see that show, a dozen or so girls were recruited to vie for the chance to get every plastic surgery known to man. The unfortunate looking women would stand on national TV in their underwear while Terry would take a black marker and point out every less than perfect part of their body by encircling them ugly black circles. The lucky girls would then have a dozen or so surgeries at once that entirely changed their appearance. After weeks of recuperation and intensive psychiatric care, the young woman would be dressed up and made up before her new appearance was revealed to her in front a full length mirror. Despite a lot of negative publicity for doing so many surgeries at once, the wait time for surgery with Terry doubled after his appearance on the show.
Paul has down numerous shows as well, thankfully I haven’t seen any of them. I believe Pamela Anderson was on one of the shows, but I’m not sure if he was actually her physician. Continue reading
What secrets could possibly be left for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to reveal? Do we even want to know?
1. Brandy says that her Oscars dress fit when she tried it on but she didn’t try it on the night before. When she got there it took four people to get her in it.
2. Brandi called child stars “a particular breed of hideous” in her book. Andy points out that Kim and Kyle were child stars. I laughed out loud. Brandi says she was talking about Leann but that some child stars have a certain brattiness as a result of getting what they want from an early age.
3. In Paris, Brandi showed the two men from Louis Vuitton her bra. I suppose technically it is a bra. It’s black and the cup is lattice work with more boob than lattice. We also learn that Brandi had very large, very dark areolas. I did not need to know that.
4. Brandi made out in the bathroom with the hot guy at the white party. He is still “in her life.” But they are not dating. Continue reading

We start the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Part 2 with the ending of the accusations from part one that Yolanda was trash talking Lisa. Lisa says she trusts Yolanda and that her trust with Kyle has been broken and will need to be repaired. This does not sit well with Kyle. The topic quickly comes to an end.
We move on to the Adrienne and Paul drama. Much footage has shown regarding the way Adrienne treated Paul on the show. It seems like a very long montage. Andy asks Kyle what she thought about them since they (Kyle and Adrienne) spent time together. Kyle says she just thought they were cute together with the bickering. Lisa interrupts and says she knew from season one that Paul had moved out of the house a couple of times because Adrienne told her in confidence (which I guess she is now violating) about the problems they were having. Kyle seem irritated that Lisa knew more about Adrienne than she did or perhaps that she was blabbing. Andy quotes Adrienne saying that she thinks Brandi’s new-found friendship with Paul was thought out and vindictive. Brandi says she is not friends with Paul they are simply cordial. Andy says in the same interview Adrienne plainly states that Brandi destroyed her family. Brandi says “I think we all know that’s not the case now.” Andy asks Brandi why she thought their marriage was a business relationship and she says because she never saw them being romantic. She said the one time she saw them kiss was when they were in Hawaii and it was so forced she felt badly for them. Continue reading

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion begins with Andy telling everyone that Adrienne is not longer with us. I love how he says that her last act as a housewife is being a chickenshit. Lisa says that if you sign up to be on a reality show you can’t then sue when someone brings things up about you. Yolanda says that her not returning is a known consequence of not showing up for the finale. Lisa says that Adrienne is leaking stories to the tabloids saying that she quit, when that is not true and Lisa knows she wanted to stay. Even Kyle is doing some back-pedaling to distance herself from Adrienne.
Andy still won’t say what Brandi said about Adrienne. I guess the lawsuit is still in place. But we do get a retrospective of all of Brandi’s altercations with Adrienne and Paul. It’s quite the body of work for a new housewife. When Bernie put out negative info in the media about Paul, Paul called Brandi and apologized to her. Brandi clears up the lawsuit/letter debate by saying that she was friends with someone named Geneva who worked for Adrienne. Adrienne thought that Geneva was telling Brandi information so Adrienne sent Geneva a letter with Brandi’s name included. It sounds like a basic cease and desist letter Geneva’s lawyer called Brandi’s lawyer and said that Adrienne’s lawyer was going to go forward with a lawsuit if Brandi (and Geneva) did not agree to sign a non-disclosure. Did everyone follow that? Good.
Kyle says that her favorite part of the season was the big party in Ojai. Thus ends the Kyle segment, apparently. Continue reading

This episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is going to be fabulous if for no other reason than it is Adrienne Maloof’s last episode! I love Yolanda. Jennifer goes and drags Marisa back over to Brandi and Yolanda (and Lisa) to finish the conversation. Brandi tells Marisa that rather than putting her husband down by telling the entire world she wants to sleep with someone new, they should both give each other a hall pass. Lisa looks physically ill but she makes Marisa tell Brandi who said she would sleep with married men (It was Faye). Yolanda gives Marisa a lecture on trash talking your friends in front of others and the conflab is finally over.
Linda Foster and Taylor are besties. Taylor tells her that it has been hard for her be nice to Yolanda and she cries and asks Linda if it is okay with her being friends with Yolanda. Linda says she is fine with it. Meanwhile, Lisa has cornered Faye and Faye says that Lisa uses Brandi to get back at Adrienne. Lisa sets her straight on that with no effort whatsoever so Faye changes tack to say that Lisa defends her and brings up the infamous bathroom sex at the white party. Lisa was the one to walk into the bathroom and pull Brandi out so she would not stay in there making out. That was all that happened. Interestingly, Faye has the tabloid version. It would seem that Faye is the mouthpiece for Kyle AND Adrienne. Faye then makes the exact same chess reference that Kyle made on last season’s reunion. I would imagine if you held a gun to Faye and Kyle’s heads, neither of them could tell you the first thing about how to play chess. Interesting they both use a chess analogy though, right? Lisa in her talking head says, “Checkmate, bitch!” This scene is hilarious. Kyle jumps up to intervene while saying in her talking head, “I really don’t like getting in other people’s battles.” Enough airtime for Faye, let’s move on to Ken and Lisa! Or at least watch Adrienne cry. Continue reading

YAY! It’s time for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I believe this is the finale. Which sucks because RHOBH is my favorite these days. Lisa is getting ready for her vow renewal. Lisa and Brandi are going to get massages and dish on Adrienne. Adrienne is having another one of her sponsored parties that she gets paid for. Lisa was invited and Brandi wasn’t. They’ve decided to hang out in Lisa’s beautiful yard for the day. The massage guy does feet. I hate the ones that skip your feet. Whenever I am in NYC the most important thing to do is to go to Chinatown and get foot massages at every single place that has the little old Chines ladies that do them. I could stay there all day, with meal breaks in Little Italy. I have slothlike qualities.
Adrienne much like most of the housewives that get brought in to add their name to an existing product is acting like she is launching her own line of vodka. It’s called Zing. I wish the Zingbot (from Big Brother) would show up and zing Adrienne mercilessly throughout the entire event. TobaccoRhoda now has me noticing Chef Bernie’s nose twitch. I should block her for that. Adrienne goes after Paul as soon as he asks Bernie anything. Adrienne is dragging out a dozen dinner plates for the appetizers. Really? Even Paul knows better than that. Continue reading

In this week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Blogs we find out that Yolanda is not really feeling the Richards sisters. Of all the housewives blogs, Yolanda has been spectacular about being very blunt with her points of view. It seems clear from reading the blogs that in the absence of Adrienne, Kyle will be on the hot seat at the RHOBH reunion show. Despite Taylor’s support of Kim, it seems as though both Lisa and Yolanda have opted to completely removing themselves from the situation since their attempts to be supportive were not well-received. Yolanda seems particularly miffed by Kim’s treatment of her once they were back in LA. Continue reading
On this week’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, we get our final glimpse of Paris as the girls take a cruise on the Seine. I can’t get over how cold and windy it was in Paris in July! At least they seemed to have packed lots of jackets and long sleeves. Yolanda gives Brandi some shoes that even I think are awesome, and so her! Oddly, most of the Bravo PR pics are from the cruise even though it was barely shown!
Back in Beverly Hills there is an odd scene where Marisa says her mother-in-law wants Marisa to co-list the family house with Maurico. I’ve heard that this was just storyline to get Maurico screen time and that ultimately Marisa just did the listing herself. The house is stunning. I am so jealous of the library. That is what a library in a $25 million dollar house should look like.
Lisa Vanderpump would be perfect if it were not for two things. First, it’s gross and annoying that she and Ken bring the dog to the dinner table. And worse, she seems obsessed with Kevin Lee, who I could do without seeing on my TV screen at all. Her house is so amazing though that those things barely matter. She has a huge infinity pool and a pond with swans in the backyard, and there doesn’t seem to be any other homes nearby. Continue reading

Kim Richards tweeted this picture of her dog Kingsley helping her get ready for the reunion.
Rumors abound over who will and will not be showing up to film the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion today. We know for sure that Marisa and Camille were not invited by Bravo based on tweets by Marisa. Wow. Even Pam got to make a little cameo on part three of the reunion last year. I’d say this means we won’t be seeing Marisa or Camille anymore. Radar Online has a source that says Adrienne isn’t going to the reunion. We all know that Adrienne herself is Radar Online’s best source of RHOBH information so there is a certain sense of credibility there. However, I have a hard time believing as much as Adrienne is running around town with her new boytoy and alerting the paparazzi to her every move that she really wants to forgo another chance to get in front of the camera and tell everyone how happy she is. True, she has no allies left this season except for Kyle, and even she seems to realize that she has attached herself to the wrong housewife, but Adrienne has never met a camera she didn’t like. Continue reading

Here we go! I am kind of excited about this episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills! The White Party is always full of drama. Plus there is Kim’s Nose Party and Brandi’s drunken escapades! First up, the Nose party. Kyle walks in with Portia and Kennedy, Taylor is supposed to join the party later. Oh wait! Taylor calls drunk off her ass to tell Kim that she is not coming to the party. She seems not to know that Kennedy is not with her so Kyle is just going to keep Kennedy overnight. So Kim and Kyle dash off to tell everyone! Adrienne suggests that since they have not seen Taylor with a man, maybe she is with a woman. Funny how her mind went there, no? Kyle is being supportive of her sister! Will wonders never cease? Adrienne has said “my husband is a great surgeon” in about 15 different ways in the last minute and a half. Continue reading
I tried to get a quick and dirty recap of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills up and once again WordPress ate the first two or three paragraphs. We began with Marissa wondering like the rest of us what the hell is so empowering about women sliding up and down the pole. Basically everyone took a turn on the pole and that was that. No more mention of this “seminar” Brandi is running or how it went or when it is… perhaps it is the next day and that is why later in the show everyone bails on Yolanda’s private plane except Jenn and Lisa. Meanwhile, the best paragraph of my recap of RHOBH got eaten by WordPress. Apparently. Adrienne has a new line of handbags to go with her fat little shoes. Despite the fat that the Maloof Hoof is constantly on clearance, Adrienne thinks she can expand to handbags. They better be some low-end handbags because a handful of designers have cornered the market on stupid people with money. They now actually pay five figures for a purse. A fool and her money are soon parted… I just can’t believe women are this stupid. Adrienne made a couple of jabs in her talking head about everyone being in Vegas besides her because her business is shoes and handbags and Brandi’s is the pole. Um, your business used to be a serious empire of many things. The fact you have now stooped to being one of those housewives who sell handbags and wines of the month speaks volumes about your business.
When Kim calls to say she is going to get a nose job THAT DAY. You have to wonder if Kyle even knows when Kim films. Also, did y’all catch Jenn the Celeb Rehab Chick shake her head no when Brandi asked if Kim could have pain meds after a nose job? Kyle just brushed it off like of course, who cares. But the answer is no Kim should not have any narcotic pain meds after a surgery, nor should she be getting an elective surgery this quickly after rehab. I imagine the reason we have this new doctor doing her nose is because she is not telling him she is an addict. There is more than one way to get some pills in Beverly Hills. I predict Kim will say, he didn’t ask and she didn’t know she wasn’t supposed to take them.
Edited to add: The rerun is playing in the background and I realize the phone call went like this. Kim: “I am thinking about getting my nose done.” Kyle: “When?” So scripted. If your 40 something sister calls and says she is thinking about getting her nose job, you don’t say, “When?” you say, “What brought this on?”.
