In case you have missed any previous chapters, here is a handy dandy link list.
The Curious Case of Parks v. Stanton Chapter One: When is a Deposition NOT A Deposition?
Yet another motion to compel. Phaedra was extremely uncooperative at her deposition.
The Curious Case of Parks v. Stanton Chapter Two: A Tale Told By An Idiot Full of Sound And Fury Signifying Nothing.
Phaedra refuses to answer pretty much every question about Apollo.
The Curious Case of Parks v. Stanton Chapter Three: I Did Know Once, But I Have Sort of Forgotten.
Phaedra has amnesia. She can’t remember she has a workout DVD business with Apollo. She can’t remember her accountants name, she can’t remember her bank branch, in fact she denies every going into a bank.
In this chapter we will focus on Phaedra’s relationship with Angela. In one of the depositions of Angela’s former boyfriends he seems to think that Phaedra and Angela had a more intimate relationship than just friends. Let’s see what Phaedra has to say… Continue reading
CNN is reporting that a 23 year old black male was shot and killed by St. Louis County police today. The male entered a convenience store and took two drinks and left without paying. He later came back for some muffins. Again left without paying. The police arrived at the scene and found the guy who pulled a knife out of their pants. The man was told to drop the knife and began behaving “erratically” he started yelling for the cops to shoot him and they did. It is possible the person was mentally ill. Protests and riots have both already started. Continue reading
Wow, Eddie’s acting is improving. See that Hollywood? He is the next Neil Patrick Harris! He can play a believable straight man even though we all know.. that acting is hard. Tamra’s talking head victim, really? I can’t. Can I just zip through to the end when everything happens? OMG Tamra did fly home by herself, according to her, which no one can believe and there is no evidence of.
Shannon has decided to start going to bed with her husband and it has been a great thing for their relationship. Shannon’s husband David is pretty hot. And rich. He tells Shannon he will apologize to Heather and Terry.
Heather is conspiring with Tamra against Shannon on the phone. Tamra is a cunt satchel and Heather just undid everything I started to like about her again in Bali in one bitchy phone conversation.
I really don’t understand guys obsessing over their inch hair. Men with practically shaved heads will obsess. Men with nearly two inches will spend three hours making the bed head look appear just right. Continue reading

Forgive my while I take this 30 minute fun break from all the drama. I would first like to point out that Kim Biermann doesn’t know what nipples are. In the flashback to previous episodes part of the intro, Kim is tell her friend Jenn that her nipples are really going to get big, like pancakes. Then, she makes a circle with her fingers and holds it up to her boob to demonstrate. What sort of woman, let alone one with some sort of nursing training doesn’t know the difference between and areola and a nipple? Sheesh.
This week’s episode is focused on getting Lana a man. Kim asks about how her recent date went. Lana says, “First of all I wanted to leave right away. He took his teeth out and wanted to kiss me.” OMG this is not motivating me to get back out there, at all. Poor Lana.
Kim has a baby shower for Jen. It’s funny. Kim is giving Jen the placenta lady who will put her placenta in pill form. Which is what Kim really did. That whole green drink was a joke. It was, right? RIGHT? Jen’s baby is gorgeous. Lo and behold the placenta smoothie lady arrives. Maybe they do the shake and the placenta? Actually, can we not speak about this ever again? Thanks. Continue reading

According to the autopsy, Mike Brown was not shot in the back but from the front. The curfew is an hour away but multiple reports of gunshots from the protesters toward the police officers resulting in tear gas and smoke bombs being thrown toward all protesters. A witness on CNN is saying that there were not gunshots fired. Media says that shots were most definitely fired and they had to “hit the deck.” Continue reading
I don’t often do a Sunday night Big Brother recap because Sunday nights just have so much going on. But tonight’s episode should be epic and I am excited to see how everything played out. I knew that Derrick did not want to lose his goat Victoria this week, but I was a bit surprised to hear him say in his DR he didn’t want Donny to go home either. Derrick doesn’t really have a strong tie to Donny and Derrick is Donny’s number one target.
Donny knows that he is going on the block. He tells the DR that he is definitely outnumbered but he is not out yet.
Wow, Derrick played the dead Grandfather alliance card with Frankie. Interesting. Frankie’s HOH basket has lots of family pictures and a few of Ariana. Victoria is starstruck. Zach and Caleb both pitch tents. In the DR, Frankie is worried that Ariana will be Caleb’s next obsession. Derrick got some great family pics again too. His daughter is adorbs. He got a little blue baby blanket that he carries with him everywhere now.
The new TA Challenge is to steal a piece of clothing from each houseguest and create a neighborhood watch for 24 hours to keep it from happening again. Continue reading
Well this has certainly been a long dramatic week. So much turmoil in the world, in the US, and on the Internet. Let’s hope that this episode of RHONJ will be a little big less emotional. Can I just throw this out there about Amber’s hair before we get started? If she had chemo and lost all of her hair five years ago, there is no way that is her actual hair. Yet, for some reason she keeps insisting that it is. Wouldn’t it play into her cancer victim routine much better to just admit she has five pounds of extensions on her head? Does she really think she is fooling anyone?
Joe and Melissa go to the high-end car dealership because, promotional deal. The storyline is even stupider than usual. They want to have the garbage truck custom painted. The garbage truck. It’s not pretty enough. The garbage truck. Seriously? Just when I am already pissed off by Melissa’s ridiculous environmental speech the high-end dealership that customizes GARBAGE TRUCKS points out that Melissa drives a Bentley which is hardly good for the environment and gets eight miles a gallon. Did I mention the storyline is the Bentley dealer is going to paint their GARBAGE truck, because I can’t seem to stress the stupidity of this enough. In fact we may have actually reached the nadir of stupidity. This scene may go down in history of the very moment the Real Housewives franchise jumped the shark forever. Right here. In this moment.

On WWHL Nene texts Kim to tell her she has the same dress that Kim is wearing on the show. Andy points out that Kim now has two giant watermelons on her chest and comments on her new boobs. Kim says he will have to watch the show. Um, no, no we won’t Einstein. You have like triple Gs on your chest. It’s not a secret. Andy also points out that Kim has a whole lot of spray tan going on.
KIM IS DRINKING OUT OF A RED SOLO CUP ON WWHL WHERE THERE IS AMPLE BARWARE AVAILABLE. I am convinced she is doing this just to drive me over the fucking edge. Andy points out the faux pas, but Kim stubbornly maintains her right to be a redneck.
The Shady Shegull asks her the weirdest place she has had sex? Kim says anywhere and everywhere. Shady Shegull asks which RHOA has the worst wardrobe? She says Kandi.
Kim is asked about her parents and she says she has not and will not be speaking to them. She seems frustrated and sad to be asked every time she comes.
Andy is now selling shotskis on Shop By Bravo. Good Grief.
On to Don’t Be Tardy… Continue reading
Brooks Ayers is gracing the ATL with his presence this weekend! He is in town to visit his oldest son. Brooks was spotted by TamaraTattles.com spies last night at Johnny’s Hideaway! Those of you in the Atlanta area know that is the perfect place for Brooks. It’s sort of a meat market for the, uh, older set.
Our spy approached Brooks and struck up a bit of conversation. She pointed out that Brooks obviously gets a bad rap on the show. Brooks replied, “It gets better next season.” Now how would he know that? I can see assuming that Vicki will return next season if indeed there is one. But it seems an interesting response to me. Does he mean to imply that their relationship may move to another level? You know Vicki does tend to need a man living with her at the very least to fill her love tank. And they have talked about it. Or is Brooks just blowing hot air. We all know he says all kinds of things after a few drinks. Continue reading
I am REALLY getting tired of Phaedra stories and you probably are too, but people keep sending me information and I might as well get it all out there. Phaedra Parks, Smyrna home was put on the marked in the last day or so and listed by Keller Williams. The home is priced to sell at $349, 900. Phaedra paid $322,000 in 2001 according to Zillow. A quick look at the tax records show that the home has always been listed solely in Phaedra’s name and Apollo was not added to the deed when the couple married in 2009.
From the Keller Williams listing, “This charming Smyrna beauty offers 3 finished levels that your most discriminate buyer will adore! Completely renovated, this spacious home features 5 bedrooms, 5 full bath, 1 half bath, gleaming hardwood floors w/an open floor plan and large kitchen that overlooks the great room. Grand 2 story foyer, separate dining room, and a large master suite w/walk-in California closets. The finished basement has an in-law/guest suite, full kitchen and bathroom with a private entrance, it’s the perfect space to entertain! This is a must see! “
It is a lovely home; however, it’s a McMansion neighborhood. I am not sure everyone really gets what that term means in the south. Essentially, it is a development where large homes are built on small lots and they are all pretty much the same floor plan. Here in the south you can get a large, 4,000 square foot five bedroom, five bath house in the high $200 thousands. Continue reading
Shannon is done with Tamra, but holds out hope for a friendship with Heather:
I am not happy that I haven’t had time alone with Tamra. Her bike ride ran long and she was even late for the Balinese dancers. I did my best to initiate a conversation one-on-one with her at the dinner table, but, of course, that didn’t work. Tamra was upset that Lizzie told me things that were said behind my back and questions why Lizzie told me. Tamra never denies saying any of those cruel statements. She doesn’t apologize for them. And I never got an explanation before she stormed away from the table. Clearly I never will. Time to move on and know that Tamra is not my friend. Friends don’t talk behind each other’s backs like that.
It is interesting that I have had some fun moments with Heather on this Bali trip. I thought it would be a nice gesture to pull Heather aside on our last night to thank her for including me on the trip. Heather also extended an olive branch by apologizing for talking about my email to her group of friends. Maybe the tides will turn. . . Continue reading
Amber’s RHONJ blog is up and she has shifted her attitude from anger to victim. She’s turning into the RHONJ version of Tamra Barney. That’s quite the feat this early in her first (and probably last) season. Her blog was super long and repetitive. She and Jim both attempt to use words they really don’t understand in ways that are almost but just not quite correct. Anyway, here is some much needed laughs given the depressing nature of all the news I have been reporting on…
Amber still blames Nicole for the chain of events and implies that she really is a homewrecker:
Nicole says she wanted an apology. Hmm, well, I would have loved a chance to apologize, however she acted like a lunatic right off the bat. Nicole wanted a scene, not an apology. She made sure everyone was there, which kind of makes you think she planned it all along. We are all human, we all make mistakes, but we cannot go around attacking every person that speaks about our mistakes. I could have told her who was telling me the rumor and we could have dealt with it together. The fact that Nicole escalated the situation like that is just disgusting to me. She could have talked to me. I would have heard her side of it, and she would have gotten an apology out of me for not coming to her first. Maybe she reacted that way because she had no intention of just dispelling a rumor. Maybe there is more to it, and the reaction was a distraction from the truth…apparently, it is working.
