WHHL With Jules Wainstein

WWHL Jules Wainstein

Jules Wainstein was on WWHL last night and I didn’t even put it on my recap list because I didn’t recognize the name!  I just checked the guest list and was glad I didn’t have a late night recap on top of Catfish and RHONY.  The even truthier truth is that I just wanted to watch the premiere of The Challenge Rivals III on MTV because I think I will be 95 years old and still watching MTV challenge shows and there will probably be 83 year old Wes and  Johnny Bananas still falling off high structures suspended over rocks.  But let’s see what we missed on WWHL

First of all, Andy’s tie is almost straight! It’s like the force was with him. Secondly, Jules is wearing a necklace that looks like it is made from the Styrofoam cutout sheets I used to used when I taught in the primary grades. As much as I bitch about you guys, this is way more fun than sitting around all night cutting out random shapes to go with my author studies.  Ususally. But really, this necklace is ridiculous. Is that what old money is wearing these days? Styrofoam? Now that I think about it, there is not a single person on RHONY that has a decent jewelry collection. It almost makes me miss Jill Zarin. Almost.

The drinking word is “like” because Jules can’t go six words without saying it. It’s way too early for me to drink thank God, or I’d be plastered before lunch. Later, they played a count of the amount of times the word like was said during that lunch. It was a whooping 47 times.

Real Housewives of New York Recap: Birthday Bashing

RHONY season 8

 

Bethenny

Bethenny is obsessed with Brynn. It’s cute. She’s pacing up to go on at trip with Brynn? I don’t think she is allowed to film per Jason’s orders.

Okay I am done recapping and this packing scene had absolutely nothing to do with anything at all this episode. I guess they just needed a Bethenny scene and stuck it in as filler. Did I miss something?

Dorinda

Carole and Dorinda out to lunch. Carole starts right in talking about Jules’ house.  And her body. Carole talks about who ate what.  Then she says the energy may have been off because of John. Dorinda did not like that one bit. She has decided to just not bring John around the girls. Good idea.

Jules arrives to lunch and Carole acts like she wasn’t just trash talking her. But we move on to Jules talking about how critical Bethenny was of her home.  Carole of course defends Bethenny. Jules says she is old money and Bethenny is new money. You know Jules, when you start a new job you need to check the lay of the land and find out who is tight with the higher ups. Then you steer clear of them and try not to trash talk them. Jules says she wants to sit down and chat with Bethenny. Oh Jules, I’m not sure you are up to that.

Carole Radziwill Is Offended. Chronically Offended.

RHONY Carole

 

“Move on,” says the woman who still calls herself a Countess more than a half-decade after her marriage ended. If she was going for comedy, I’d laugh. Really, I would. We’d all laugh, but she isn’t.

Wow, someone is really fixated on the Countess thing. What difference does it make to you if she calls herself the Queen of England?

“Moving on” is a concept invented by Housewives. Housewives who behave so appallingly all they can do is say they are moving on, preferably in a place where everyone can hear them.

Really? You think the housewives invented moving on? The large majority of people in therapy are there because they can’t move on. The loss of a loved one,  childhood trauma, divorce, losing out on a big promotion, getting fired, whatever the issue is, the goal of therapy is to put a period to mark the end and move on.

To stay put and acknowledge that their actions have consequences and to accept responsibility is simply too painful for this particular brand of narcissist. And not only do they say they’ve moved on, they actually brag about it. They are proud of their ability to move on. “Look how evolved I am,” they seem to be saying, “I can simply move on without regrets.”

They should be proud. The ability to move on is a valuable life skill.

WWHL With Carole Radziwill and Ryan Serhant

WWHL With Carole Radzi and

 

I totally forgot about this show today.  I’m going to hit the highlights because it is ShondaLand Thursday.

Carole doesn’t think Luann was jealous about her dating the chef, she just thinks she was in a bad place in her life and took it out on her.

I know I watched the first episode of MDLNY but I don’t remember Luis firing his entire staff. Maybe that happens tonight?  And why is Ryan’s fiancée butting in to Luis’ business tonight. I do not think I will like her this season.

Carole says she didn’t say bad things about Luann, but she did retweet a lot stuff that her fans said about Luann when Luann was  mean tweeting her. I missed all of this back and forth but even recently I think Carole was mean tweeting someone.

Carole thinks that John and Dorinda are in many ways a good match. It does seem they have lots of things in common.

Real Housewives of New York Recap: Finally, An Actual BBQ!

RHONY Bethenny BBQ
This week on RHONY we are back at the Hamptons where the new Bethenny is the type to throw herself a birthday party. It’s apparently a new Bravo requirement that every season of every franchise must attempt a “BBQ.” Who knows what this one will be like. Bethenny’s house at the Hamptons is so pretty. I have been having a lot of house envy lately. She has her outside bar just like LVP!

John has no memory of his argument with Bethenny or agreeing to apologize the night before.

Bethenny is having a real BBQ with a giant oil drum BBQ with rotating rows of grills inside. This looks amazing. Carole plans to keep a friendly distance from Luann. Ramona shows up with case of Corona’s instead of Pinot Grigio. This is officially a real BBQ!  There are Moscow Mules and spiked hot chocolate served in gorgeous copper mugs. This is probably the first housewives party I would want to go to! I’m in love with this whole thing.

John is making Bethenny super uncomfortable. He’s creeping around the edges of the party. Luann arrives with a hula hoop for  reasons that are unclear. There are two seating areas. Bethenny is in one, John  in the other. Luann joins the group with John to avoid Carole.  As people start to mill around Dorinda continues to be John to go apologize to Bethenny. After a drink are two, John hollers across the yard for Bethenny to “come here.” We go to commercial but I’d throw him out for that. He just needs to go. Continue reading

Carole Radziwill Is No Fan of Jules Wainstein

RHONY Carole Rad

Say what you will about Carole Radziwill, but she is one of the few housewives who writes her own blog and does it well. As we are trying to decide how we feel about Jules, Carole has filmed the entire season with her and has mad her assessment.  And she doesn’t hold back on het blog on last week’s episode entitled The Biggest Boob.

Here is an excerpt.

But if Ramona is the Double-D of boobs, Jules comes in second at Double C. Thing is, Jules is cute and nice and easy to laugh. She had me at hello, but she lost me somewhere between menopause and mom.

I must have missed the whole, “had you at hello” part. Because both you and Bethenny seem to have an agenda to imply that she is the one with the eating disorder.

I wasn’t even going to mention this because really, who cares? But from here on in I’ve decided I want to be offended…by everything. Offended that Ramona is offended that I was offended by her constant talking. Offended that Dorinda says Ramona and I can’t be friends. Offended that Bethenny offended Snoopy. Oh, yeah, and offended that Jules seems to have age-shaming Tourettes. These women could be my mom. They’ve gone off their menopause meds. The elderly. As the kids say, what up? It’s only the third episode.

Offended is the new black. It’s standing room only on that train.
