It’s hard to say. On Friday, October 10, State Judge Carla E. Brown issued a court order requiring Phaedra Parks to sit for a second deposition with Angela Stanton’s Lawyer, James Radford. As we all know, Phaedra has been gadding about the country under the guise of a book tour in recent days. The following Monday, Phaedra jetted off to LA to film the Ellen show on Tuesday and hawk her book from the pulpit of some church on Wednesday. On Thursday she was in NYC with Ayden trying to take him to meet Andy Cohen in his office. It looks like that happened last Friday. She appeared to be in NYC to appear on Dr. OZ.
My reading of the court order indicates she had ten days, not ten business days so today is the big day.
This morning someone sent me this statement from Angela Stanton on her Facebook page. I cannot find it myself, but I am Facebook impaired. Here is what the screenshot said, “Getting ready for a long, drawn out day with lawyers, court reporters and stenographers…some people will never learn until it’s too late. I actually feel sorry for those who go out of their way to harm you & don’t realize how much they are harming themselves in the process.” Continue reading
Bethenny Frankel is a media whore. I really don’t think there is anything wrong with that. There are a lot of people who want to be in the entertainment industry. I used to dabble in it in my late teens and early twenties. I couldn’t handle all of the waiting around and pancake makeup. It was fun to experience but certainly not something I would have considered as a career. If I were forced to be in the industry, I’d want to be a casting director. Mostly because bad casting can really irritate me. But Bethenny has been trying to get and stay in front of cameras for decades. And even now that she is a mother, and very rich, she can’t seem to shake the bug.
So Bethenny Frankel is returning to RHONY.
“I’m genuinely excited, with a side of slightly nervous, for my return to The Real Housewives of New York City,” she said in a statement. “Bravo has always been the place on television where I have the freedom to be unfiltered, honest and inappropriate, with an audience who has been with me from the beginning. I can’t wait to see what this next chapter brings for all of us. Watch what happens!”
Andy Cohen is also thrilled with her return. “Bethenny is one of the most popular Housewives in the history of the franchise, and I couldn’t be more excited she is coming home to Bravo!,” he says.
I feel like I am being forced to watch this stupid show. Andy tries to break the mood with a montage of Milania and Gia modeling. Andy is borderline disturbing with his obsession with those girls.
Andy plays a montage about Teressa being a bitch about Teresa’s sentencing and Rino is in the audience screaming and clapping that he loves that Teressa was a bitch. Andy says twitter is blowing up about it. Teressa said she apologized to Teresa and they are in a good place now. Andy says she saw that clip for the first time on the reunion. Andy says the twins were crazy for pushing Teresa’s buttons by calling her stupid. That is the Gorga switch for violence. Rino continues to shout out answers and Andy is already pissed with Rino because he won’t stop screaming out thing in the audience.
Andy has the certified results of the lie detector test Victoria Gotti took to prove she was telling the truth. She passed it. Teresa says. “I’m a housewife, she’s a has been.” Nicole says Victoria lied about having cancer. She will say anything for attention and then she says, “Bye Felicia, beeeep!” apparently trying and failing to channel Nene.
Tamar is pretending to be appalled by the twins and asked Andy where he found them. Really, Tamar? You are way worse than those two. Continue reading

And just like that, RHONJ comes to an abrupt stop after only 12 episodes. This of course means that everyone gets about half the check for a normal season. What remains to be seen is whether or not Teresa and Joe will film a few more post sentencing episodes to scrap together a few more bucks. I suppose time will tell.
We start the show at the courthouse. I really think that is cool looking court house. Love the blind justice statue. Paul Fishman announces that Joe Giudice received 41 months and Teresa got 15.
Then we flash back to six months earlier. Teresa and Melissa are hanging out at her house with all the kids. The kids are bouncing off the walls. Teresa is stressed.
Meanwhile, Dina and the twins are at “Abbey’s House” where the Project Ladybug event will be taking place. It’s ginormous. Is that an actual residence or an event hall? There are giant dogs there that make it seem like maybe Abbey lives there. Oh, it is her home and Dina is worried about the hoodlums coming. Victoria is NOT invited. Teressa is still expecting an apology from Teresa. She makes snide comments about the Giudice family falling apart.
You know what would be great? Another segment about Amber’s cancer. I can’t wait or recap this shit. Continue reading

There sure are a lot of doctors on The Blacklist. This week’s doctor, Linus Creel is only 7 numbers away on the list from last week’s Dr. James Covington. I really should put all the blacklisters in order by name and number or get an unpaid intern to volunteer. :) If anyone is willing, you can see all the recaps so far, here.
We begin this week with a seemingly nice lady who is down on her luck speaking to a banker about saving her home. She seems very stressed and sweaty. There is a man watching her in a car outside. When the banker turns her down, she goes out to her car and gets a gun and starts blowing people away inside the bank. The dude watching her has what looks like her medical file and make a voice notation that the situation was a success.
Red tries to get Naomi to go back into a protection program again and she is not willing to leave her husband Frank. Red says if she loves him, they need to start a new life. Frank says they don’t need his help. Frank doesn’t trust Red. Red puts Pee Wee Herman on the case and Pee Wee discovers that the reason Frank doesn’t want to relocate is because he has a mistress he would have to leave behind. Whatever, Frank, I’m sure you can get a new mistress at the new place. Pee Wee was super upset with the mistress for leaving the dog in the house all day. So he takes the dog to Frank. So Frank gets to move with two bitches after all. Red tells Frank he will be faithful to Naomi and go into his protection. He persuaded Frank with a stick to the throat. It worked. Continue reading
We’ve all heard Nene trying to explain why she is being phased out of RHOA. He latest explanation was something like she didn’t want to be associated with all the weave pulling and trash talking forever.
And yet, this is the gig she just took. You really have to see the ending. Nene seems to fit right in. I think she’s found her next job.
First of all this is a two-part episode. Why? I mean don’t all the episodes build on the previous one? Why give this one a distinction of being part one of two?
We start with Poppa Pope trying to blow Jake up. But Jake knows all the tricks. So in the war between Jake to see who gets killed first, Jake wins the first battle.
Olivia and Quinn get called in to extract the president’s daughter from a sex and drug party. She was filmed with two young men a position called the Eiffel Tower (girl bends from the waist to give one guy head while the other takes her from behind. They guys high five about her back, forming a crude Eiffel Tower of flesh.
Poppa Pope is pissed with Tom for fucking up the car bomb that was planted to kill Jake. Jake tries to ally with Tom to take Poppa Pope out. Poor Tom is fucked either way. How is he stuck in the middle of this duel to the death?
Abby flounders around in Olivia’s old job and is pissed that Olivia keeps getting called in to take care of business.
Mellie loses her shit when she sees Olivia in the White House. Fitz tries to keep Mellie in the dark about the sex tape, but it doesn’t take long for it all to come out. Fitz annihilates Mellie and by doing so seems to snap her out of her deep dark depression. This cause “Smellie Mellie” to trend on Twitter. At least long enough to comfort the little sex kitten .

I’m over this show. I’m over the post I am supposed to be working on. I am over messages in my inbox about when I am going to recap, or write about the show. I’m over it. Below Deck has gone from one of my favorite shows to recap to one of my least favorites. I think what I will do for this post is just note every negative comment about the guests. Because unlike every other Bravo show, the guests on this one PAY A LOT OF MONEY to be on the show, and more importantly to be treated well by the crew.
We begin with the morning after Kelley’s birthday bash. Everyone is dragging ass. Captain Lee has to go down and wake everyone up.
Kate takes the first strike at the guests mocking one of them for wearing a sideways cap and a hoodie. Claims he is an “aspiring” musician. Ben hops right on the condescension train by mocking their requests for Cristal and caviar. And we are off to the humiliate the guests races.
Kate and Kat seem to have plenty of vitriol left over for Amy. It’s good to see Amy calling them out on it.
Time for the lucky guests to arrive. Then name calling by the crew begins when the guest first come into view on the dock. The guests are from Jersey. They look like Snooki. I should point out that Snooki can buy and see any one of these fools ten times over. Resting bitch face is in full effect.
Before the ship even sails, the guests have the audacity to inquire about the caviar. Kat seems not to be familiar with the word sturgeon. How do these folks from Jersey know more about caviar that Kat? Ben begins the lies to the guests. Just tell them it is Beluga. It’s implied that they won’t know the difference. Then we get a talking head from Kat mocking the guests for eating all the caviar and doing so incorrectly. Or so says the chick who has never heard of Beluga or sturgeon. Continue reading
It’s time to check back in with the Manzos. I’m going to zip through the last two episodes I have missed in a quick post. On the first episode, we see Albert! Caroline is bitching about doing the boys laundry and Albert points out she doesn’t need to be doing it. This reminds me of when I would be at college, or even beyond those years out working and I would drive home with a trunk full of laundry. I was bringing it because I didn’t have a washer and dryer (Fun fact: I still don’t have a washer and dryer) and I could get it all knocked out in the luxury of home without sitting in a laundromat all day. Mother would moan and groan at the site of it, and then I was forbidden from doing my own laundry. It was a scene that would play out over and over. I’d try to do my laundry but she would have none of it. All the while complaining about doing my laundry at my age. I think it’s just what moms do.
Anyway, those unemployed shiftless Manzo boys are opening up their second restaurant in this episode. Their newest location is at a race track. If these two would stop running restaurants and making bank on TV shows, they would have time to get a damn job like the rest of us. But alas, they are too busy meeting with contractors to build the new site. They are unhappy that the new site at the track is so small. Allegedly. It’s supposed to be small it’s a racetrack stand, people. And a beer truck. Continue reading
Our AHS expert, UF is having a busy week. These recaps take him several hours to perfect and he just can’t fit it in this week. However, he didn’t want you guys not to have a place to talk and he wanted to share some of his observations so this week’s recap will be more like one of my “random thoughts on the episode” posts. Enjoy and comment freely!

In the opening scene Meep the Geek was polishing eggs clean. WHY? He eats the heads of live chickens. So weird.
The actor who plays Meep the Geek also played Infantata in the first season of AHS. He was that freaky baby that lived in the basement and killed people of the Murder House.
Elsa’s tent is grander than the faded soiled single tents of her beloved ‘monsters’; especially with her over the top baroque candelabras, chandeliers, & tchotchkes. Don’t you all think the inside kinda looks like the inside of the bottle where “I Dream Of Jeannie “ lives with all the heavy draping and textiles. It’s very claustrophobic. I remind myself it’s fucking tent.
LOL when Bette was nervously chewing on her finger then Dot reached over and tugged it away from her mouth.
Freaks declare how they are just normal people as they dig up body parts.
Twisty in that toy store playing statue between two other clown mannequins scared the shit out of me.
Oh for the love of all that is holy. This here is one hot mess. Phaedra’s book is about virgins being prepared? This woman is insane. If the pastor’s level of literacy is any indication, can’t none of those people read.
If you are interested in the parable of the ten virgins, you can click through for the entire scripture. Continue reading

After posting this story about Kenya Moore’s cancellation of a student assembly where she was expected to make a $20,000 donation, a source close to Kenya reached out to me to attempt to explain the situation. After a bit of back and forth, I believe I have finally gotten the real story.
First of all, Kenya’s donation to the foundation came from her personal funds and was NOT connected to Celebrity Apprentice. Changes in the filming schedules that resulted in Kenya being unable to attend were initiated by Real Housewives of Atlanta production. Also, production was not going to Detroit to film the check presentation. Her high school, Cass Tech ,proposed the ceremony in her honor to say thank you for the generous donation. Continue reading
