Leann & Eddie Recap: The Drinking Word is Brandi

Leann and Eddie

I already hate it. They are just introducing each other and it already sucks. In their montage of taboid covers they make sure to include one with BRANDI CHEATED FIRST! on the cover. We start by going to the premiere of Eddie’s movie, Best Man Holiday. But no before Eddie takes a jab at Brandi for saying he does not work. That two jabs in the first two minutes. Wait it looks like two more jabs in the first two minutes. They are responding to gossip about a $50 dollar divorce and Eddie reaching out to Brandi for emotional support. Really? Eddie reaching out to Hank Baskett’s transvestite lover would be more believable. Okay we are up to seven jabs. Leann says that Brandi is just a mouthpiece to the media spreading lies. Leann is pissed that Eddie would not comment  And that entire conversation in the car was filmed after the fact to make it look like they planned the Eddie denies Luann tongue on the red carpet “story.”  Actually that tabloid story looks completely made up as well. WTF?

Luann’s contract is finally over. She was stuck in some sort of ridiculous 20 year contract from childhood.

This is the longest half an hour of my life. Continue reading

Mob Wives Reunion Recap: Boring

Mob Wives New BloodLast week the season finale of Mob Wives just left us hanging with a “to be continued…” ending. To me, that means we will have another episode of the show. To the Mob Wives producers, it means we go straight to the reunion.  I think that is odd. Sherri Shepherd also seems to be an odd choice.  It’s like sending a lamb into den of wolves.

Right away, Alicia explains what happened in court, which we already knew because it was all over the news. The feds are holding up sentencing until they can figure how to get her Mob Wives salary as part of her restitution.

Big Ang is wearing a glittery hoody with the hood up. It’s weird and I want it. Oh I think it is a dress. It’s much more interesting than rehashing the “Delicious” debate. Continue reading

Couples Therapy Recap: Releasing Anger

Couples Therapy, John Bluer, Taylor Armstrong, Ghost Face Killah, Farrah Abraham, John GosselinSada and Whitney

Sada is freaking out because her father is coming to the house for a session with her and Dr. Jenn. This is really putting a strain on her already volatile relationship with Whitney. These two try to communicate, they just seem to not hear what the other person is saying.

Dr. Jenn sits down with Sada and her father to discuss Sada’s history of growing up in a loud, aggressive family. Sada’s father says there is a history of violent behavior going back generations. Her father apologizes for hurting her. It was all very calm and emotionless. Sada and Whitney seem to end things on a good note. Continue reading

Mob Wives New Blood Season Finale

Mob Wives New BloodMy TV guide is not noting this as the season finale but I am pretty sure that is what they said on the last episode. Sorry it has taken me so long to get to this recap, I’ve been super busy!

Renee has been keeping a secret from the girls. She has been secretly writing a sex novel. She reads a little bit of her book out loud. Let’s just say she is not the next Sylvia Plath.

Alicia is very nervous about her sentencing. I sort of feel sorry for her. I get that she committed crimes and needs to do the time, but her sentencing has been dragging out for like a year and counting? I’m sure she just wants to know her fate at this point.

Big Ang comes to her senses about having a baby and tells Neil he will just have to be a grandpa to the two on the way instead. Also they just bought a fixer upper house that is going to take all their time and money.

Natalie finally tells London that her job and her house and her life is in Philly. She wants London to marry her and move to Philly. They seem to be at a standstill.

Couples Therapy Recap: Repeating The Same Patterns

Couples Therapy, John Bluer, Taylor Armstrong, Ghost Face Killah, Farrah Abraham, John Gosselin

This episode of Couple’s Therapy is about repeating the same patterns. It’s a great topic, but I have no faith at all in Dr. Jenn’s ability to explore the topic with any degree of success.  I must have been naïve to think that therapists who come on TV shows are any less attention seeking than the “patients.”  Regardless, I just can’t quit this train wreck, despite the lateness of my recapping, here we go.

Jon and Liz. Part of the whole group therapy thing from my perspective is for people to get an idea of how they are perceived by others. You know, like with that great head shrinker of our time Dr. Phil asks the audience who thinks the person on the stage is full of shit. It’s supposed to make the person realize that the group consensus that change needs to be made. Yet every fucked up person on this show has tried several times to tell Jon that his cowering submissiveness is beyond emasculating and Liz’s constant cracking of the whip and humiliating him is wrong. Yet they seem to be just fine with the power exchange and so why the hell are they even there? Clearly, Jon wants to be the doormat and Liz wants to walk on him. If they are into that? Good for them. But quit trying to pretend like you are there to make changes that clearly you do not want to make. Jon has a history of submission and I suspect Liz has a history of humiliating her partners. Maybe it’s a match made in BDSM heaven. But let’s move on, for fucksake.

Dr. Jenn meets with Jon to explain that he needs to grow some balls. Jon starts right away defending Liz. Jon says Liz is really good with his kids. Didn’t the love profile last week indicate that neither of these two procreators were in the least bit “family oriented?” Oh wait, I remember. He just dismissed that whole thing as television for ratings.  Dr. Jenn says that Liz doesn’t really care if she hurts Jon or not. Dr. Jenn suggests he stop being a wounded animal, take his power back and stand up for himself. Later. Liz seems to be realizing she is a bitch. Progress? Continue reading

Mob Wives Recap: A Whole Lotta Ho Ho Ho(s)!

Mob Wives New Blood

It’s time once again for me to recap the Mob Wives.  It’s the penultimate episode and expectations for drama is high as the producers set up for the explosive season finale next week. Let’s get right to it!

Drita’s Dinner Party

Drita has all the girls over to dinner.  Drita has just finished her home renovations and she dares anyone to get out of line in her house now that she has it all done up. Let’s see how that works for her, because if renovations could stop Mob Wives from feuding, the whole clan should start their own home renovations.  Renee is the last to arrive and is seated next to Big Ang.  Natalie is already feeling bitchy toward Renee. Alicia is hopeful that Renee will stay in her seat and not put anyone in a choke hold.  Plus she is worried about her sentencing that is on the schedule for next week (yet still has not happened IRL).

Alicia basically tells Renee that she feels like their situation is very catty.  She says that Renee spreading rumors is harming her case.  Renee says that Alicia has it all wrong. She is not selling stories to the tabloids.  She may gossip with her friends from time to time but that is it. Big Ang asks Renee if she knows who the leak is. Renee says absolutely not. (heh) Renee says that she thinks that Alicia’s problem with her is really about Carla. Continue reading

Couples Therapy Recap: We Don’t Want No Crumby Love

Couples Therapy, John Bluer, Taylor Armstrong, Ghost Face Killah, Farrah Abraham, John Gosselin

It’s time for Couples Therapy again. It seems the weeks just fly by these days! I am ready to see what Kelsey and Latrice decide to do about Ghost. I hope they both toss him to the curb. Usually, in these situations, both are hoping the other will walk away. Don’t ask me how I know this.

Yes Kelsey, he has shown you who he really is! Kelsey bolts from therapy and Dr. Jenn goes after her. I was praying for someone with some sense to go in to comfort her, but sadly for Kelsey, Taylor goes to her instead. Dr. Jenn gives her stupid “crumbs of love” analogy again because that was so helpful the first time.

Kelsey wants to apologize to Latrice for interfering in her relationship even though she did not know Ghost was a slime bucket with a girlfriend. Latrice says she doesn’t know if she can trust Ghost. Really? What more do you need to know he is a lying sack of shit? Latrice goes back to the hotel. Kelsey says she is done with Ghost. But is she? Kelsey says she is not going to wait for him to choose. She is not going to share a bed with him tonight.

Taylor says the person she feels the most for and has the most concern for is Kelsey.  Mostly because the TV cameras follow the drama, and she is all about the cameras. Continue reading

Mob Wives Recap Double Feature!

Mob Wives Halloween 2013

I have been so very busy with the blog lately I have totally gotten behind on Mob Wives. I am barely awake and making coffee so I can make it for the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics tonight, but first I am going to zip through the last two episodes and give some random thoughts rather than a full recap. I am dying to hear from my Mob Wives watchers, it’s been too long! Sorry for the delay.

The last I saw, Alicia had confronted Renee as her number one suspect as “THE LEAK.” Renee is pissed about it, but frankly, I think Alicia had plenty of reason for her suspicions. Side note: I’ve only been to Philly once and I stayed in a hotel right across from that big clock. It was straight out my window and you could see it from the bed I was sharing with someone I would just as soon forget. Thanks, Mob Wives for showing it every episode. #memories.

Anyway, it’s Halloween. I hate Halloween. Where the hell are these women? I’m forwarding. It looks like Renee and Alicia will be reuniting at a Halloween party in Natalie’s funeral home. How lovely it must have been to have your loved one’s body there while that was going on.

Drita’s scene with Method Man was genuine and adorable. The rap is actually pretty decent.

I am starting to think Big Ang is actually serious about having a baby with a surrogate. If you missed her on Bethenny, her menopause discussion was priceless. Also, Renee, Drita and Alicia were recently on Bethenny as well. Yep, Renee and ALICIA.  The fact that Big Ang was not on with them, coupled this post with (which Renee actually responded to, Hey Renee! Don’t whack me! Love ya!)  makes me wonder if Renee and Big Ang are on the outs, Continue reading

Couples Therapy Recap: Get Real

Couples Therapy, John Bluer, Taylor Armstrong, Ghost Face Killah, Farrah Abraham, John Gosselin

Tonight we begin the second half of the debacle known as Couples Therapy.  The title is Get Real and I suppose it refers to both Ghost and Farrah. I doubt either will actually do it. But I am sure that Dr. Jenn will pretend to buy whatever they put up for sale.  Tonight Farrah has an off camera session with Dr. Jenn and Ghost has a three-way session with Ghost Face Killer, Kelsey and Latrice.

We pick back up with Kelsey furious with Ghost. Ghost goes to do damage control. For once Kelsey does not cave. Sada comes out and talks with Kelsey. Sada gives WAY better advice than Dr. Jenn. She says that Ghost doesn’t get to pick. That Kelsey needs to walk away with some dignity. That she is better than this. Later, Dr. Mike’s counseling is basically keep your chin up.

The counselor chick has been tagged as “it.” This means she gets to chat with Farrah over breakfast about her lack of relationships with others in the house. They are all still eating takeout with plastic forks. I hate to agree with Taylor, and certainly don’t agree with the delivery but I would not want to live off of take out for two weeks either. Can’t they get some food in the house? Can anyone cook? Kelsey maybe? Perhaps the living conditions are a bit sub par despite the beautiful interior. Blaring heat and nothing but takeout from Applebees would be some pretty rough conditions. I can see pea green towels pushing me over the edge. Just not on day one after a full night out on the town.  Anyway, the counselor is pushing Farrah to try to fit in. I don’t see that happening in the last week.  Farrah says people are so rude.

John, Taylor, Sada and Jon are all outside talking about Farrah.  Her story just does not add up. Taylor and John make all kinds of fun of Farrah in her talking heads. It’s rude and immature. They are grown adults with grown children and a lost little girl. They have absolutely no compassion for Farrah, which is partially understandable, but to take it to the next level and mock her clothing (Taylor) and her poor conversational skills (John) is pretty reprehensible, especially in the context of group therapy.

Couples Therapy Recap: Playa 4 Life

Couples TherapyWe are half way through therapy according to Dr. Jenn.  Sounds like this is going to be a very short season.  Dr. Jenn explains that Liz caught Jon masturbating and he is lying about it. This she claims is the perfect segue into today’s group. I can barely believe I typed that let alone that Dr, Jenn said it.  The topic is sex.

Jon loves sex with Liz.  When she isn’t in the mood he masturbates. Dr. Jenn let Liz have it for shaming him and emasculating him when she caught him masturbating. Liz seems pissed and Jon will likely pay for this later.

Dr. Jenn essentially asks Farrah if guys think she is an easy lay since she is a porn star? The exchange three sentences without Farrah fake crying. Continue reading

Mob Wives New Blood Recap: Eat Worms, Bitch!

Mob Wives

Drita wants to record another rap. She goes to her producer and he suggests a song, Money Bags. The producer the producer also works with Method Man and he tells Drita he has agreed to come on the show record with her.  Later, Drita asks her five year old daughter to help her rhyme. Whatever. Let’s get to the Renee and Alicia showdown.

Big Ang and Renee go for a walk to talk about Alicia calling Renee a rat. Drita meets with Alicia. Once again, Drita is supporting someone Renee is on the outs with. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I bet she gets a ration of shit from Renee.  They are discussing things that Renee said that show Renee has been gossiping about Alicia with her friends.

Natalie wants to marry London. Or at least have him move to Philly.  I could never be with someone with those teeth.

Renee got a letter from Junior. He has about a year to go before he gets out. Junior wants to come home Renee when he gets out. Renee will NEVER be a rat.  AJ says he doesn’t want to hear anything having to do with his father.  He has moved on and he doesn’t want to live in the past. Continue reading

Couples Therapy Recap: Fess Up

Couples TherapySorry I am so behind, it’s been a very busy few days here at Tamara Tattles!  I finally have a moment to watch Couples Therapy!  I love this show despite knowing that it is all fake.

Sada and Whitney tell Taylor and John that they watched  Farrah’s porno and it was all “backdoor.” They repeat this several times as if this revelation makes the whole thing more  salacious. Actually, Taylor says if you are going to do one, do it while you are young. Whitney says that she and Sada have done things on TV of a sexual nature. No judgment for that.  But they do want to give her a ration of shit for lying about it.

The group session is about trust and fidelity. Clearly, this is targeted at Ghost and Kelsey. Ghost is a huge player. Kelsey knows she can’t trust him. Ghost asks Dr. Jenn I he is being looked at as the bad guy. No, Ghost, just a guy who can’t keep his dick in his pants. Ghost is sweating and looking for the exit. Ghost says he doesn’t fall in love in four months. He says that Kelsey is one of his relationships. (AKA just another number) and he was surprised at her intense emotional involvement. But he said it all, Ghosty.  Ghost clams up. Kelsey never says a word that we see. Continue reading
