I actually fell asleep before this show aired last night and slept until 8 a.m. so I didn’t have time to recap. Thank the gods that I may actually be back on a regular sleep schedule. I actually had breakfast and everything this morning. Three cheers for getting on normal people’s schedules! So today I was not going to recap this, because Reza, but Luis is on and I love him so here we go! .
WOW! The second the show goes on air we hear Reza off camera call someone a “psycho bitch” before Andy, whose tie is even more cockeyed than usual, can do his introduction. Seriously, we are not two seconds in and Reza is calling someone a bitch and Andy looks like he has been swung around the room by his necktie. This may be better than expected.
Adam is the bartender. He is wearing some bizarre type of getup that I cannot begin to explain. Perhaps I will find a picture later. The big news is that Adam has changed his name to Farahan effective yesterday. Wait, how can any legal matter be “effective” on a Sunday? OMG! Andy has out come out from behind the bar to show off his interesting ensemble and it is a vile, very deep necked, crocheted jumpsuit. I have no words for this. Clearly, Adam is into humiliation. NTTAWWT.
Reza explain that he and Adam have their actual Cartier love rings and the estate sale ring was just a little something on top. He shows us his own ring finger and we see he has the love ring with another ring on top too. I will refrain from public remarks speculating about the meanings of the second rings.
See UPDATE after the page break.
I really have not found it necessary to explain this entire trademark war with you guys in intimate detail, but I keep seeing all sorts of definitive statements in comments that are completely untrue. So I am going to do all the way into the boring minutiae maybe so everyone will understand that I know what I am talking about, for the most part.
Bethenny Frankel owner of an LLC named SG Marks, LLC. SG Marks is a shell corp that Bethenny uses specifically for trademark applications, trademark infringements, trademark disputes… I could get even more Forest Gump about it, but you get the idea. This corporation has its own vigilant team of lawyers specifically to protect her brand from encroachers. So I could just end this blog right here with GAME OVER! There has been more than one attempt by wayward fools to attempt to file trademarks for Skinny Girl (the one word or two thing is important in this post) diet supplements and those attempts were abandoned by the applicant. Because, it’s simply not going to happen, I can assure you that Bethenny’s trademark lawyers are better than yours. Don’t waste your time. She has money and can play this game all day, every day and not be in the slightest bit aware it is happening, let alone bothered. You will lose. But let’s continue to spell it out in excruciating detail, shall we?
Peter Guimaraes Real Housewives of New York hanger-on. It’s amazing to me the similarities this guy has with Peter Thomas on RHOA. Both have a smattering of closed restaurants in their wake, both of them are thirstier than a lone, lost Berber child in the Sahara, both have questionable relationships with women shown on the show, and both claim to be incredibly successful in the restaurant and bar industry despite evidence to the contrary. Oh and neither are very good at coherent verbal or written communication. Peter’s latest enterprise is a bar called Tipsy Girl. I don’t think it is an accident that Bethenny is filming scenes at Tipsy Parson this season. It’s a subtle way to point out the lack of originality in the bar name Peter chose. Perhaps. Allegedly in my opinion. Peter filed for his trademarks personally, not under any business name.
It’s time for Shahs of Sunset and it is going to be more Rezacentric than usual. I’ve noticed fewer and fewer comments on this show lately. Are y’all still out there? I don’t think I can quit this one. I was too committed to it at the time I started this blog. I interviewed most of the cast (I was new and didn’t realize what a bad idea it was getting to know the Bravo crowd) and did tons of research and spoiling and I feel like this one I have to ride out. So get on the ride with me people!
Reza stops over to see Mike and give him some groceries and basically check up on him. Reza lectures Mike about staying out of the clubs and trying to work on his marriage. Mike really did try eventually to win Jessica back. But it was too late, she was already with some guy charged with rape, who is nicer to her than Mike was.
Later, Mike meets Jessica in a restaurant to talk over some still drinks. Mike tries to remind her of the good times. Jessica says that Mike is obsessed with money and thinks that “providing for her” means buying her stuff. In her talking head, she says they had “underlying trust issues” before the marriage. That’s as close as we will probably get to any mention of Mike’s cheating. After much awkward silence, Jessica leaves.
Vick Gunvalson has dated quite a few men since her split with Brooks and she shares quite a few of them on Instagram. This latest one has not to my knowledge been named yet, presumably to avoid all the drilling down by websites for background information. A few of the ones in between Brooks and this guy did not pass the prying eyes of the internet to be sure.
This one seems to be just part of the family. I’m not sure what the details are on Briana’s husband but it seems like I heard something about him getting a discharge for some sort of disability? I could be wrong about that. At any rate, whether Briana has finally gotten the hell out of Oklahoma permanently, as seemed to be the plan, or is just back in Orange County for filming RHOOC, it seems the whole gang is one big happy family at this Angels game last night.
It appears the ratchetness of The Real is not confined to the actual show we see. It seems that last night Tamar Braxton was told she was fired by the show and her departure will be announced tomorrow without her presence at the table. Tamar is not taking the news very well. She posted the following on her social media accounts last night.
I love u all but I have been stabbed in the back by someone I stupidly trusted ( not my man or my sisters) I am not about to be tried and tested to snitch (👀) and it’s not in good taste to tell you who…… but as #tamartians you are very smart and can figure things out on your own. But know that every one who smiles in your face is NOT your friend and is NOT cheering for you and will LIE and try and tear u down to TRY and dim your light. Thank GOD HE HOLDS MY FUTURE AND …MY HAND! (Remember who u are)….I am Tamar Braxton. And if you thought for 1 sec u played me…..In the late great prince and the amazing Beyoncé voice you PLAYED yourself😂 to God be the Glory and I will be taking a short break from ALL social media…until then❤️ yourself and WATCH YOUR BACK ( I put this picture up cause this is the embrace I got from my sister and best friend that she ALWAYS gives when she knows I’ve been had)
The bullies of F Pod?
One of the female inmates, Jaime, from 60 Days In has done a Youtube about her time with the film crew. I doubt it will stay up long but I will put it up after the break.
The first interesting thing she tells us is that F- Pod is really a male pod and they moved the women in there specifically for the show. Only the inmates that signed the release were moved there. I believe she said the women were in D-Pod before. Which is kind of crazy. Maybe the that is why there were not enough beds in the jail for the guys. Interesting. She said that they girls all loved moving to F-Pod for two months of filming because there were only 6 rooms with four beds each and each room had a shower. In D-Pod there were only 3 showers for the whole pod of 1900 girls. That’s what she said, which either means that we didn’t see the real D-Pod or that there are more parts of D-Pod we didn’t see.
She was not a fan of Tami. She says she was a drama queen and was up in everyone’s business. She says she knows Tami will say that was her job but she was up in every little thing. She was seeking attention. When a fight would happen she would get right in it. She was very opinionated. She would come in someone’s room and criticize them for drawing a heart on the wall. She told Jaime she was “so disrespectful” for drawing the heart. Jaime and Maryum did not like Tami at all. She was a busybody. Tami would not look at or speak to Maryum.
