LynnNChicago Real Housewives of Atlanta Preview
Superbowl Sunday is winding down, are you ready to overdose on Housewives this week? Tonight the Atlanta Housewives continue their trip to South Africa then tomorrow night Lisa continues to be tortured on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Part II. Finally on Tuesday, Orange County will debut with it’s season opener.
It’s a Housewives extravaganza!
First things first…tonight Atlanta meets South Africa without Kim. Kim is back home struggling to care for her baby without any help from her husband who is away at NFL Training Camp. (such problems! Poor Kim!) Kim’s assistant Sweetie wasn’t hired to be a nanny or a housekeeper so most likely she’s not going to be a whole lot of help with the baby or with keeping the house clean.
Kim has already made some comments about Sweetie stepping up to help around the house but best we can tell she’s talking to the wrong people! Kim’s telling viewers in her talking head interview and she told Kroy at their romantic dinner that she needs Sweetie to help with the baby and with the household chores but the one person she hasn’t told is Sweetie! I think that lack of communication is what will end this working relationship between Kim and Sweetie…we’ll see.
The rest of the Housewives are in South Africa and they’re leaving the luxury of their amazing hotel to head out into the wild to visit the animals in the bush, they’ll also visit an orphanage and bring them much needed supplies. Well done Bravo, I’m glad you included this footage in the Housewives South African vacation.
Let’s hope the ladies can get along during this important visit and not show the ugly American side that they’ve been showing so far during this trip. I wonder if Marlo will ensure that the tour guide will call her if any of the cute young children go home early. She’s such a nightmare, honestly!

I suppose if you gather a group of women who have just spent a tumultuous few months together, it’s never going to be completely pleasant when you start to dissect how the relationships unfolded. I wasn’t expecting it to be an easy reunion, but at the end of the day, I knew the most important thing for all of us would be honesty.
Yes, honesty is very important Adrienne but petty jealousy isn’t really all that important, you could have left that at home!
Over the last two years, you have seen me in some great moments and in some tough ones. The one thing that has always worked for me is to be straight up. It’s not always an easy choice to just lay things on the line, especially when you’re telling someone you care about that you feel hurt or vulnerable because of their actions. I’ve been fortunate in that people usually view me as being strong, but I’m human too and I also have those moments of being sensitive.
To be honest in the last two years we’ve mostly seen Adrienne do absolutely nothing, if this is you being “straight up”, you can stay home too! Please don’t pretend to care about Lisa now, it only makes you look ridiculous!
Please remember you only see a fractional portion of our lives and our relationships. There were moments occurring behind the scenes as well that were causing hurt feelings amongst all of the ladies. That being said, I didn’t think it was an irresolvable situation by any means. When you put it into perspective, there are real issues that people are struggling with in today’s society. This was something that I considered to be a minor bump in the road, and I expected we’d move on from all of this once we talked about it.
I’m so sick of being told that we don’t see everything, that so much happens that isn’t
shown on screen. I have to call BS on that because if there were things that happened more substantial than Lisa calling her dog “Crackpot” and saying “The Maloof Hoof” I know and Adrienne knows, Bravo would have shown it. By the way, saying “Villa Cacka” was the most cringe-worthy moment of part one of the reunion so congratulations Adrienne, you looked like a damn fool.
So I felt that clearing the air was worth it, for all of us. This is an amazing group of women who are far better off enjoying each other’s company than fighting.
Ultimately, those who know me also know that resolution was always my goal. What I have taken from all of this is that maybe my approach was too direct in this situation, and in the future there will be times when a softer approach is a better idea. I value my friendship with Lisa, and I’m looking forward to moving on in a positive direction with all of my fellow ‘Wives — who I truly think are brilliant, talented, and beautiful.
Good luck with that positive direction Adrienne! Calling Lisa a liar on national television might be easy for you to move on from but I have a feeling that Lisa isn’t going to forget anytime soon. Oh and for the record, an apology typically would be called for here.
Just as importantly, I am fortunate to have fans who inspire me on a daily basis. Thank you for all of the kindness and support you have given me throughout this entire Housewives experience.
You may have a “fan” or two Adrienne but they’re dwindling quickly, your behavior was atrocious and it’s reflected in the Tweets that you’ve been reading daily. Your continued efforts to “put it behind” you and “move on from here” aren’t going to deflect from your attacks on Lisa.
Adrienne Maloof behaved like a spoiled school girl, and now we find out that Adrienne can’t take the heat and is blocking viewers on Twitter:
This is Adrienne’s response to a viewer who supported her yet she still gets that dig in to Lisa even after being proven wrong and even after RadarOnLine insists they’ve never paid Lisa for a story. Wouldn’t an apology be more appropriate?

The California girls will be back on Tuesday, are you ready for this? I’m not! The Orange County Housewives appeared recently at The Grove in Los Angeles to promote the show.
The National Ledger reports:
The surgically enhanced reality TV beauties stormed the The Grove in Los Angeles.
The ladies didn’t do any interviews, Bravo clearly didn’t trust them to actually speak, apparently their appearance there alone was to attract the press and create a buzz. Trouble is, I haven’t seen it anywhere else except The National Ledger. I only found it because the article included a link to my blog discussing the Beverly Hills Housewives and the interviews with Brandi and Kyle.
Apparently Los Angeles isn’t all that impressed by the Orange County Housewives?
Sad news out of Orange County, Donn Gunvalson has been diagnosed with cancer, more details to follow when they are available.

Out of the blue today, I got this tweet:
First of all, Kelly has me blocked, if someone hadn’t re-tweeted it, I wouldn’t have seen it. Second of all…… What? Kelly found ONE lousy “sweet comment” about Jill Zarin so Kelly, who actually said she is NOT friends with any of her ex-cast mates, wants me to see how amazing Jill Zarin is?
Dear Kelly, let me refer you to “the list” and be done with it.
Then Kelly Tweeted this, so I’m sure she’s forgotten all about me…
kellybensimon Marilyn Monroe: Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.
Leave it to Kelly to quote Marilyn Monroe. Let’s face it, Marilyn may have been very pretty but she wasn’t exactly a genius herself.
Check out Terry Aley’s hysterical latest post on the Kelster:
For all of you Canadian readers, are you getting excited? Real Housewives of Vancouver is set to begin airing in April. While there are a lot of rumors out there, the official list of Vancouver Housewives haven’t officially been released.
I am certainly hoping that we’re able to view the show here in the United States. Pretty Please!
Rich Amons Asshat Of The Week Award
The award goes to Adrienne Maloof!
For Adrienne’s ridiculous, childish and unfounded attacks on Lisa including the “crackpot” and “Maloof Hoof” comments. Watch Adrienne in this video:
It’s absolutely sickening the way Adrienne tries to get back at Lisa with her ”Villa Cacka” comment which was obviously pre-planned and sounded ridiculous! For her asinine continued pleading with viewers to “put it behind you” and “move on”.
For her deflection remarks “there are more important things in the world to deal with” and Tweeting about her children which is so obviously her attempts at getting viewers to stop pointing out the obvious to Adrienne.
For openly supporting her chef Bernie as he attacks her so called friend for no reason and Adrienne refuses to support Lisa while this man sells stories to tabloids about her friends. Hopefully Adrienne’s dinner guests will be careful not to criticize the food at her house, in fact they better just kiss Bernie’s ass or they just might find some fake story about themselves in the tabloids the next day!
*Note* Rich Amons had nothing to do with choosing the Asshat Of The Week but I continue to maintain that he would agree with me if he was asked for his 2 cents!
Dr. Phil talking to the crew at RumorFix.com about Taylor Armstrong. There’s our Michael Mazzella!
Michael got his hands on an advanced copy of Taylor’s book, hopefully he’ll be writing us a review very soon. I certainly am NOT advocating that anyone spend money on this book at all! I’ll be waiting for Michael’s review!
Michelle’s Daily Dose of Style
NEVER wear a size too small. Too-small clothes may make you feel better because you’ve squeezed yourself into a smaller size, but you will look terrible. It creates back fat bulges, stomach fat bulges, and other unsightly bulges you want to avoid like the plague. Do NOT do it. Size is not important, fit is. And if you want to pretend you are a size 8 instead of a 10, you will suffer as a result.
Thank you to those ladies who met me this afternoon for a lovely brunch and GREAT conversation, that was a lot of fun! I appreciate you all coming out today!
Don’t forget to check the Hope, Prayer and Advice page, there just may be someone there who needs your wisdom, experience and support! Thanks everyone!
Until Next Time…
