It occurred to me yesterday as I spent five and a half hours getting a haircut and some highlights (I look fabulous but Jesus Christ on a cracker, how do these housewives abide sitting for hours with a chair while people fuck with their hair and makeup?) it occurred to me that a lot of commenters here have either not watched RHOBH from the beginning, or see every season in isolation from the previous ones. Others just pick their pony ( or mini-horse or swan) whenever they began watching and defend that person to the death. I do not understand this viewing method as it is just not how life works in general with a group of women, and it certainly isn’t things evolve on reality shows. In any group of women, in a sorority, in the junior league, in an office setting, friendships change and develop and are influenced by the introduction of new members and the departure of old ones. On reality TV people come in one way on their first season and can be a completely different person on their second season. Kenya Moore came in batshit crazy and then toned it down for season two. Thus I hated her season one and have enjoyed her more and Moore as the season’s progress. Camille Grammar season one was not the same Camille Grammar we had in season two. Those are extreme examples, but in general you never see the season one personality of anyone by the second season. The longer people are on, the more they understand the game.

Okay what fresh hell is this Bravo? Are we really going to have a show about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season One? It appears we are. I’m in. But this had better be good.
Well, we begin straight off with Kim’s alcoholism. On the last day of filming, they were at a huge birthday party for Taylor and Kim was wasted. Apparently, someone from production let Kyle know. Because, it’s apparently Kyle’s job to keep him reasonably sober. Kim stormed off the set drunk and went out to the limo to drink. Kyle went after her and that is when the infamous limo scene went down. Kyle says she just lost it.
Andy didn’t want to do Beverly Hills because they were already doing Orange County. Andy thought they would be too much alike. It all started with Kyle. Kim’s audition tape is all about how Kyle doesn’t think she is good enough. Kim looks 20 years younger. So sad.
Lisa has a signed contract for Giggy. Apparently, this is a real deal. And such a clever way for her to be paid more than the other ladies. Or avoid taxes perhaps. I’m just saying. Lisa also wanted to go by “Pinky” on the show instead of Lisa. The producers told her that Pinky Vanderpump sounded like a bad porn star name and didn’t allow it.
Camille said that she didn’t think Kelsey would want her on the show. Kelsey called production and made sure that RHOBH hired Camille to keep her out of his affair. Continue reading

TT was gracious enough to let me try out a little recapping. So let’s get “Botched,” shall we? For anyone who’s watched the show, we always meet three truly messed up people, some because of their own incessant need for plastic surgery, but a few who have been victims of truly horrible circumstances.
But the catch? Only two out of the three will get “unbotched” by the dynamic duo of Terry Dubrow and Paul Nassif. Quick side note: Anybody notice the strange transformation that has occurred with our two, former and current, housewife husbands? I remember Paul as Adrienne Maloof’s goofy— saying whatever was on the top of his head— Botox-administering husband. While now, he has suddenly become Mr. Calm, the voice of reason. While Terry. He’s so … Terry, on steroids —insulting Paul, throwing deep shade left and right. It’s as if he’s transformed into the housewife he was always meant to be. Almost giddy —from freedom. (You can take a guess who he’s escaping from on those long shoots.)
Side note over. Who’s up first? Blondie Bennet whose moniker lists her as Dream Doll. Really? This will come into play later when I tell you what they call the other two patients. How to describe Blondie? Wellll, she looks like a older, emaciated version of Pamela Anderson with two bowling balls inserted under her chest cavity. She has had five boob jobs, chin Lipo (wtf?) cheek fillers and Botox, like everywhere. As the image of Blondie, parading around in fur bikinis that expose way too much under-boob, seers my retinas, she starts talking numbers. sigh She’s not doing either of us any favors. I hate math. But I will attempt to translate the various cc’s of implants. She started with 700 cc’s, they were large softballs; she moved onto 1200 cc’s, they were bowling balls; and finally ended up with her current 1700’s that are friggin’ soccer ball-sized boobs. On a frame the size of a prepubescent teen. And does she want to fix these monstrosities? Nope. She wants to be twice the size. Of course. Continue reading
This is why elementary school teachers learn to line their kids up by height so school picture day will not look like this. How much did Andy pay for that ill fitting suit?
It’s kind of ironic that some of my favorite people are Brandiloons. It’s even more ironic that my oldest and dearest Brandiloon has a) Given up alcohol for Lent …and stuck with it unlike me and (2) Is claiming she is not going to watch the reunion. I would suggest that she, and all of my sweet, deluded Brandiloon friends avoid reading this recap as well. The Brandiloons seem to all have a deep Anglophile streak so perhaps something interesting is on BBC this evening.
Brandi’s face. It’s just. I can’t believe people pay to have that done. What a dorky opening. Then he starts right away with other peoples questions (He’ down with OPQ). Kim is in Sharknado 3 (sounds like Kathy is calling in favors). Someone wants to know how the most Eileen has ever won on a sports bet. She says she has lost several thousand and won several thousand it all evens out. Good answer for the IRS. BTW When I had a big win in Tunica they bring out the chips in dramatic fashion with guards and then you sign away your taxes and pay them right there. Brandi describes Kenya as very, very, smart, a little bit crazy and evil. Which is of course why Kenya is my spirit animal. Another fun TT fact: Kenya tweeted me about buying furniture in Atlanta last weekend. I’m sure she has no idea that her haters think she pays me to say nice things about her. But that fanned the flames as I knew it would. OTOH, DID I MENTION KENYA MOORE TWEETED ME! #Dead Continue reading

Hi, it’s me, Tamara. I’ll be your blogger for the evening but I just had a heavy conversation and completely forgot to set up the technical crap for this blog. So apologies in advance for sucking. And newbies can not waste their time telling me how poorly written is. So I had an extra hour to drink and I’m really kind of off tonight. I’m afraid of my neighbors and now of my neighborhood. I think it may be time for me to move and I can’t sell. So I may look into renting this place.
Anyway we are back to Yo dealing with Bella getting a DUI. Wow Yo is totally lying about what happened. Yo’s version is Bella had a glass of wine and decided to the gas station (WTF?) and go stopped. Um real version is Bella blew through a stop sign and almost hit A COP CAR. and blew a .14 nearly twice the legal limit for an ADULT. She was also driving on a suspended license. Yolanda is full of shit.
Yo thanks David for being a great step dad.

Kyle Richards recently gave a great interview to Parade.com. She discusses the current filming season be sure to click through to the whole article. Here are a few excerpts where she discusses new housewives, old friends and how her kids deal with the cameras. It really is a lovely article.
What can fans expect with Lisa Rinna on the show this season?
“You know what, you have to tune in and see! There’s a lot going on with that.”
Can you tease any of the drama?
“It’s still early in the season. A lot of relationships are shifting and changing, so it’s kind of hard to say right now. We are currently still filming now, we’re right smack in the middle of it.” Continue reading
