Danielle Staub Takes Over Alice’s Wonderland

1 06 2010

After watching last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, I’m wondering if Danielle Staub’s tell-all biography she’s written is actually a tall-tale. (AKA: a work of fictional BS) It is clear that she lives in a beautiful dream land where rabbits carry watches, caterpillars spend the day smoking, kooky characters throw tea parties in the middle of the forest, purple cats with giant grins disappear into thin air…..and there she sits on her throne as the Red Queen.

Danielle flipped an event that was meant to help a sick child into a delusional showdown. She hyped herself and her “entourage” up with a false belief that the Manzo family was out to get her and would somehow sabotage her on this night. Let’s break it down, shall we:

Delusion #1: When she walked through the doors of The Brownstone she was filled with a sense of empowerment because she knew they didn’t want her there and were angry that she was in their “home”.
Reality #1: None of them cared! LOL They all felt that she was a guest at the event and she would be treated like all the others. 100% business.

Delusion #2: Caroline’s son was setting Danielle up and let her know that they were going to make her evening a living hell out of spite for her.
Reality #2: He stated that they were “in for a surprise” because they dressed up like they were going to a ball and it was a casual affair.

Delusion #3: The Manzo family purposefully screwed up the seating arrangements so that Danielle would have nowhere to sit and would realize that she was not welcome there.
Reality #3: The reason why the seating for Danielle’s entourage was not adequate was because those people basically “crashed” the party! How would they have somewhere to sit when no one knew they were even coming?? The staff at The Brownstone put out extra tables but The Red Queen was already on a rampage.

(Time Out: Who brings a crazy ex-con on probation to a fundraiser for “protection” from people who aren’t even thinking about her?!)

There is definitely an ulterior motive for Danielle’s actions, ALWAYS. In her mind, it was already made up that something was gonna go down. She just had to fuel the fire to get it going. Any little thing she could find to misconstrue what was actually going on, she attempted. Then, when the fire was in affect, she could point the finger and fall into her victim “woe is me” act.

Viewers’ Choice: Which OC Housewife would you kick to the curb?

19 11 2009

With the send off of Jeana on The Real Housewives of Orange County and the arrival of Alexis, what are your thoughts??  I have a few, like “can we get a two for one?”, maybe send Lynne along with her?   If you could send any one of the ladies home, who would it be?

The Real Housewives of OC: Back & Back At It

6 11 2009

So what did you think of the new season of the original housewives? I have been waiting for this since this season’s second episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta! Don’t get me wrong, I love RHOA, but it gets a little low class and “new money” at times. The OC wives have a completely different feel while still bringing the drama and entertainment that I’ve missed.

It seems like some old issues are still brewing, and some new situations have sprung up while the camera crews were away…

Tamra is still juicing the phone call she may or may not have received from Gretchen’s “boyfriend” that she may or may not have been seeing while being engaged to the late Jeff. Let’s get over it, if that is the only issue that you had, let it go. It shouldn’t matter to Tamra whether or not Gretchen’s relationship with Jeff was real, worry about your own relationship.
And speaking of Tamra’s relationship, it looks like she and Vicki have switched it up on us. Vicki’s marriage has been rocky for sometime but apparently things are going much smoother for her. (Btw: who laughed their butts off at Vicki’s parachute experience??) Tamra’s on the other hand, has taken a nose dive. I wonder if it has anything to do with being on tv? The cameras can make or break you. Having your relationship broadcasted to millions is not always for the best.

In other relationship news, if you think that Gretchen’s new man looks hella familiar, you’re right. It’s Slate from past seasons (Jo’s ex) …. Ummmmm (insert confusion & suspicion here).

No real interesting tidbits about Lynne… Zzzzzzzzzzz… Oh sorry, I fell asleep just thinking about her. Forget an Ambien, one dose of Lynne will get you right where you need to be! Besides being boring, she is way too naïve. They are smiling in her face and talking about her behind her back, but she smiles and just takes their word for it. Get a clue, please.

Poor Jeana went from riches to rags in such a short amount of time. The real estate market is a bish. She isn’t as far off as she is making it seem though. She is down 2/3 of her usual income, so she says but this season’s RH check should keep her afloat until the market is looking up. I really don’t understand how she made it through 5 seasons, she’s not that interesting.

Oh and be on the lookout for Alexis Bellino, the newest cast member. Bravo describes her as “spicy blonde who unabashedly lives on her own terms…”

I can’t wait to see how things continue to unfold with my favorite Bravo housewives, this is going to be good…real good.

Who Would You Choose? Fantasy Celeb Reality

1 09 2009

I don’t know much, well anything at all, about Fantasy Baseball or Football but I think that there should be some sort of Fantasy Celeb Reality game as well. Wouldn’t it be great if we could decide who is cast in the reality shows we watch?

I’d have to say that there are three reality shows that I would love to see right now and for three different reasons:

(1) Beyonce because she is so private, I would love to be a fly on her wall for just one day.
(2) Will & Jada because they are the epitome of black love. They are so positive and motivating. I would love to get a closer look into their lives, their love for one another, and their family.
(3) Pooch Hall because, well that’s my boo, I don’t have to have a reason to want to see my boo on TV, lol. But if I did need a reason, it would be because not only is he sexy, but he’s positive and very spiritual, and funny as well. I would love to see how he deals with situations in his everyday life.

And of course, they would have to have the right network to make it classy not trashy, like Style or Bravo. **Note: In most cases, its not the network that is trashy, but the cast….

Those are my three draft picks! What’s yours??

Jeff Lewis is Flipping Out Again

30 08 2009

The thing that I love about Flipping Out on Bravo is JEFF LEWIS. I love him. He is so hilariously blunt, its ridiculous! I was so excited about this season starting and he did not disappoint.

Being gay is definitely not the only thing that Jeff is open about. He says any and everything that comes to mind and couldn’t give two shits about how anyone takes it. Like, how about he tells his assistant to pick up mexican food and because she only brings back with her four containers of brown salsa for six people, he makes it a point to eat every bit of it himself and continuously asks the others at dinner if they have any left to spare because he needs more.

On top of that, when hiring a male intern based on a headshot that the applicants had to submit along with their resumes, he asks the intern why he was extremely late for work this particular day. The intern tells him it’s because he plays a game of checkers on his phone every morning before he gets out of bed and he can’t get up until he wins a game. It took him 3 games to finally win, making him late. Instead of being upset by this, Jeff is actually understanding and surprised at how much his intern is like himself.

I can’t get enough of his antics, this show is a must-watch! It will keep you laughing and shaking your head at his bluntness and crazy views. Tune in to Bravo, Tuesdays at 10pm EST. If you love reality television, you will definitely love this show.

She Said, Sheree Said…

21 08 2009

So how many of you watched the unseen footage of NeNe, Kim & Sheree? I just don’t know who to believe anymore!

Kim LOVES to play the victim role so I could see why she would feel the need to lie about what was said behind the other housewives backs. On the other hand, Sheree is an instigator to the fullest. She had a lot of negative things to say about NeNe during her interviews in season one, so why would we not assume that it was her that was doing the backstabbing?

Poor NeNe, two friends turned ex-friends, turned friends once again, at each other’s throats. In my opinion, neither of these ladies are trustworthy. Who to believe?
