Bethenny’s tips for a great Memorial Day BBQ:
Mob Wives Reunion Part II by BB
Everybody except Joy is out of their seats. Drita walks off the stage. Joy is calling her back. Carla is telling everyone to talk a little nicer to each other and to not be disrespectful to each other. I can’t understand what the women are saying to each other. Drita and Ramona are popping off about all kinds of stuff and finally Karen tells the ladies this is Joy’s show and to let her talk. They keep talking about what happened at Renee’s party. It ends up Drita and Ramona saying it wasn’t even a fight and Joy said it sure looked like a fight to her.
Next are scenes shown about Drita and Karen’s problems with each other, which at this point, I don’t even know what they are nor do I really care anymore. They come to a conclusion that Drita and Karen have different definitions of friendship. They agree to disagree about what friendship is. Joy says it’s good they called a truce but what’s going to happen when someone in the neighborhood starts spreading gossip again. Karen and Drita think their truce is going to stand. Ramona is not so sure she will have truce with Drita or Carla.
In the next segment the ladies are joined by Carla’s husband Joe and Karen’s daughter’s father, David. Joy says “Welcome felons, I mean fellows.” The ladies crack up. David says the worst part of being in jail was missing your family. He said the reason he was in jail was due to all kinds of charges, including attempted murder. Joe was in prison for money crimes, including wire fraud and tax evasion. They all say that Mob Wives is a hit with the people in jail. Joe at first wasn’t that happy about the show when it was called Mob Wives. Joe thinks it’s a little over the top and not for the faint of heart.
Scenes are shown about the wives dealing with their husband’s faithfulness, or lack thereof, during their marriages and relationships. Carla and Joe are not romantically involved. However for Joe, Carla is number one and his girlfriend is number two. Carla comes first. They have a good relationship now. Joy doesn’t buy that Joe has a girlfriend and Carla is OK with it. Carla’s not worried about the little girl. They come and go. He admits he cheated on Carla when they were married. They have not had sex since they officially separated. He said he would be happy for Carla if she dated someone else. Renee says they are in love and she hopes they get back together. Joy warns Carla that serial cheater never changes its stripes. Joe doesn’t know if he agrees with her.
Next are questions for Dave. He has decided to stay in Arizona. Karen says she will go back to Arizona eventually. Right now she wants to take advantage of opportunities in New York. Karina will be living in New York with her. Dave says for the Summer. Karen says no, full time. Joy asks about the time Karen got really angry with Dave for sleeping with another woman in their bed, which was really gross. Karen says that was allegedly and she doesn’t know for sure. Dave categorically denies it ever happened. They kid around about Dave’s prowess in bed. The real Dave is hot under the collar but he’s trying to be sweeter. He was in prison for 10 years and that’s what happened to end their relationship. Karen took a lot of heat for marrying outside of her race, but she married the person, not the culture. The ladies would like for them to get back together also.
Drita says it’s hard to forgive Lee for being unfaithful, but he’s being very nice to her so it’s hard to stay mad at him. Joy says at least he’s not cheating in jail. Karen reveals that Dave had a relationship with a female corrections officer when he was in jail, so it’s possible to cheat in jail. Joy asks if they think Drita will get back with Lee and they all say yes. Everyone except Drita, that is. Ramona is still with her boyfriend Joe. She says Joe wants her to move on, but she still visits him in jail regularly. Ramona tells Joy they don’t go looking for the type of men they end up with. Renee says she does. Renee sums it up that if you don’t have a PSI (pre-sentencing investigation) report then she’s not interested. Karen says this is why Renee needs therapy because she likes a criminal.
Joy talks to each lady about their own criminal pasts. Big Ang has a record for selling cocaine. She was only under house arrest and not ever jailed. She’s more pissed off that her friend ratted on her than the fact that she was arrested. Big Ang would never forgive her. Big Ang could never rat on someone. She could have, but didn’t. Karen was arrested for drug dealing in Arizona. She spent 48 hours in jail, but her father took the heat and is doing 20 years. Carla has never been arrested. I think I saw Ramona raise her hand when asked, but it was not discussed and Drita mumbled something I couldn’t understand.
They discuss raising children as pretty much single moms since their husbands are either in jail or not around. Drita’s youngest doesn’t even know her father and Carla’s kids didn’t know their dad was in prison. They tend to spoil their kids to compensate for their dads not being there. They are trying to show their kids that people who are incarcerated are not bad people by taking them to visit them in jail. They just did bad things.
Joy asks them if they think their kids are going to be rageaholics by seeing how they go from zero to sixty. Drita says she’s a lot calmer around her kids. Joy asks them who they think dropped the most “F” bombs during this season. The winner is . . . . Renee by a landslide. She said it 407 times. Nobody is surprised by the results. Renee curses in front of her kid like that. Drita says she’s not that bad in front of her children.
Joy brings up Drita’s rapping and video venture with French Montana. They show scenes of her recording her rap while the ladies watch. The ladies thought she did a great job. Karen thinks Drita was calling out her and Ramona when she mentioned the crickets chirping in her rap song. Drita says it was not about them, but about all the haters. They talk about Karen’s book being a best seller. Drita says she hasn’t read the book and she was only worried about Lee being bashed in the book which she has heard he wasn’t.
OK, why is Joy bringing up the problems between Drita and Ramona AGAIN? I thought they agreed they didn’t like each other and that was that. They show clips of Drita and Ramona talking about each other. Drita doesn’t want to get into it again. She used to hang out with Ramona’s sister a long time ago, but Ramona was not around then. Ramona reveals that she heard that Drita was trying to block Ramona from coming on the show. Drita says she had heard that Ramona was going around accusing her of doing something she wasn’t doing and it was causing a big problem for her. So Drita wasn’t trying to block Ramona from the show, but she didn’t want that big problem coming on the show.
Joy tells Ramona she’d rather tangle with the Taliban than Ramona because she is quiet but tough in a Godfather kind of way. Karen agrees with Joy. Drita says that’s the way Carla is. They call her the sniper. One of the issues between Ramona and Drita was when Ramona allegedly said Junior only married Renee because of her father. Ramona accused Drita of lying about that and stirring up all that trouble with Renee. Joy asks Renee which of the two women she believes, Ramona or Drita. Renee is not going to choose, she says she believes both women have her best interests at heart. Drita wasn’t surprised to hear what Ramona said about her during the Poconos trip because it went on the whole season and she got used to it. Joy asks Drita what, besides amnesia, it would take for her and Ramona to become friends. Drita says they could never be friends because there are so many issues that need to be talked about. Ramona says she can be cordial but she agrees they will probably not be friends. And with that, Joy brings the reunion to a close. As much as I am not a Joy Behar fan, she did a good job, better than Andy does with the housewives in my opinion.
Thank you for a great season of Mob Wives BB, you did an amazing job! xoxo Lynn~
MOB WIVES CHICAGO - SNEAK PEAK By Detox Monday 5/28/12
VH1 aired a sneak peak of the first episode of Mob Wives Chicago last night. The show will officially premiere on Sunday, June 10, 2012. Here is a recap of the sneak peak of the first episode:
The episode begins with Renee Fecarotta Russo driving her vehicle. She says that Chicago is her town, and it is where the Mob started. She is the niece of “Big John” Fecarotta, who was an alleged Mob enforcer. Because her father died when she was young, her uncle played a big part in raising her. Renee says her uncle treated her like a princess, and he made sure she had the best of everything. He died when he was gunned down by his best friend, who set him up and shot him in the back.
Renee interviews that she has two daughters, Gianna, who is 20 years old, and Isabella, who is 10 years old. Gianna’s father is in a federal penitentiary for life for murder. There is no mention of Isabella’s father. Renee admits that she has been called a judgmental bitch, but this does not appear to bother her. She also appears to make NO apologies for it. According to Renee, she is “about class, respect and loyalty. If you don’t show me that, we’re gonna have a problem.”
Next, we are introduced to Nora Schweihs. She is the daughter of Frank “The German” Schweis, who was allegedly the most notorious hit man for the Mob. Nora says that her father was also allegedly involved in the death of Marilyn Monroe. According to Nora, none of this is true. She is adamant about it, and she is adamant about the fact that she is seriously offended if anyone calls her father a hit man. She loved her father dearly. He treated her like a princess, and he was her best friend.
Nora says her father passed away while he was incarcerated. On the day of his funeral, she received a call notifying her that the FBI confiscated his body. She says this has been eating away at her inside, and she has returned to Chicago to obtain closure over the situation. Before returning to Chicago, she lived anonymously in Florida for 10 years. She is back in Chicago to find answers to questions she has regarding her father.
Pia Rizza is the next mob wife to whom we are introduced. Pia interviews that her father, Vincent Rizza, was a dirty Chicago cop who is also known as “a rat” because he became a government informant against the Mob. She says that her father is “an embarrassment…Stay in jail and do your time.” Whenever anyone asked her about her father when she was growing up, she would tell them that her father was dead.
Pia is the single mother of a daughter. She is a stripper, and she calls her job “unconventional.” Pia says she wants to make a good life for her daughter, and, as a stripper, she can do that because it pays very well. She interviews that, because of her job, she gets called “a bitch” and “a whore,” but she does not care because, in her opinion, what she does for a living is not what defines her as a person. Pia states simply that those that judge her for her job “can get f*cked!” (Well o.k. then!)
Pia visits Nora at her new apartment and brings her an evil eye bracelet as a housewarming gift. They have been friends for a long time because their families know each other. Nora interviews that she and Pia are like sisters. She discusses her reason for returning to Chicago with Pia. Pia interviews that “A lot of people think Nora’s nuts! She gets a bad rap.” At a certain point, Nora and Pia discuss Pia’s occupation as a stripper. Nora interviews that Pia is better than that and opines that Pia “needs to get out of that job!” In line with that, Nora tells Pia to her face that she needs to “get out of that damned (strip) club!” Pia defends her decision to remain at her job.
Renee and her older daughter Gianna are at Renee’s home looking like they are preparing dinner. Renee interviews that she and Gianna are best friends. She says that Gianna’s father is a “wannabe mobster,” who was arrested for murder shortly after Gianna’s birth. Gianna tells Renee that she wants to visit her father. Renee is staunchly opposed, and it leads to a heated argument between the two. Renee interviews that Gianna’s father has a rap sheet a mile-long, and calls the murder for which he was convicted “brutal”. She says that, all of a sudden after 20 years, he wants to get to know his daughter, and she seems resentful of this. According to Renee, Gianna’s father is a “manipulative piece of crap.”
Gianna tells her mother that she has never had a father-figure in her life. She says her mother should have compassion for her position because her mother was in a similar position because her mother’s father died when her mother was young. Renee tells Gianna that her situation is totally different because her father died. Gianna’s father, on the other hand, made the choice to be a criminal and that is why he has not been around for his daughter. When Gianna tells Renee to think about the fact that her father has to spend the rest of his life in prison, Renee says she does not feel sorry for him at all.
At some point, Renee and Nora meet for lunch. Renee interviews that she has known Nora since she was a little girl because her uncle and Nora’s father were friends and associates. She is glad Nora is back in Chicago. Nora tells Renee that she wants to plan a Girls’ Night Out, and Renee asks Nora who she will be inviting. When Renee hears that Pia will be invited, she tells Nora that she has heard horrible things about Pia. Nora defends Pia to Renee.
Renee tells Nora that she thinks that being a stripper is “degrading, pathetic and embarrassing.” She says that Pia needs to “get off the pole!” Renee further states that a person should work 2 or 3 jobs before doing something like that, and she makes it clear that she does not want to associate with “those kinds of people.” Renee interviews that, in their lifestyle, men have their wives and their goumadas (Italian slang for mistresses), and, from what she has heard, Pia is “goumada trash.” In contrast, Nora interviews that moving away from Chicago has allowed her to become more open-minded and less judgmental.
Renee asks Nora if the rumors she has heard about Pia’s father are true, and Nora confirms that Pia’s father is a rat. Renee flat out asks Nora how she can even associate with Pia. She tells Nora to be careful of Pia. At this point, Nora interviews that she does not trust Pia as far as she can throw her (Wait a minute!! I thought Nora and Pia were longtime friends who were so close that they were “like sisters”!! What just happened here? Either Nora is wishy-washy as hell, or I obviously blinked and missed something). Renee interviews that her uncle taught her to keep her friends close and her enemies closer. About Pia, Renee says simply, “I don’t trust her.”
At this point, we see Pia enter her car alone. Her cell phone rings, and she takes the call. It is a male cousin of hers who tells her that he saw Nora when he was hanging out. He says that when Pia’s name came up, Nora told him, “F*ck that bitch! She’s a whore!” So, he basically says that Nora, who is supposed to be Pia’s good friend, was talking crap about her. Pia interviews that she is shocked. She says that she wants to just sit with the information for a while, and she will approach Nora with the information at an appropriate time.
Next, we are introduced to another Chicago Mob Wife, namely, Christina Scoleri. Christina is the daughter of a former burglar for the Mob who was arrested more than 20 times when she was growing up. Christina says she remembers, as she was growing up, her mother constantly getting phone calls about her father being back in jail. She also remembers her father teaching her how to open a safe when she was a little girl.
Christina is divorced, and she has a 9-year-old daughter. She was married for 10 years and got divorced a year ago. Despite that, she is still living in the same house with her daughter and her ex-husband, and members of her family do not even know about her divorce. Christina says that divorce is a sin and is really frowned upon in her family. She also says she really wants to move out and stop living with her ex-husband.
Christina and Pia get together for lunch. They have been friends for 10 years. Pia tells Christina that Nora has organized a Girls’ Night Out, and she wants Christina to go with her. Christina interviews that she does not know Nora well, and that Nora is a friend of Pia’s. Pia then tells Christina about what her cousin said about Nora talking about Pia behind her back. Christina advises Pia to address it with Noraimmediately, and she says that Pia should definitely do that before Girls’ Night Out. Pia says she will take care of it in her own time. Christina insists that Pia needs to nip it in the bud.
Finally, we are introduced to the last (but not least) Chicago Mob Wife: Leah Desimone. Leah interviews that she is “no bullsh*t.” She knew her father was in the lifestyle, but she never knew exactly what he did. The official story was that her father drove semi-trucks. Leah still lives with her father, and she is very close to him. In fact, they are a package deal. She says that when the right man comes along and sweeps her off her feet, that man will have to know that her father is coming right along with her.
Leah and Christina meet to go shopping at a clothing store. They have been friends since they were about 12 years old. Christina tells Leah about the Girls’ Night Out Nora organized, and she asks Leah to attend. Leah tells Christina that she cannot attend because she is going to be out of town. Christina then tells Leah what Pia told her about Pia’s cousin saying that Nora was talking crap about Pia to him. Leah interviews that Nora is “nuts!” She tells Christina that, if what Pia’s cousin says is true, Nora is not a friend to Pia. Leah agrees with Christina that Pia should address the issue with Nora before Girls’ Night Out. Leah says that Pia and Nora are both crazy. She also says it is probably better that she is not going to be able to attend Girls’ Night Out.
Next we have a scene of Nora and Renee in a limo on their way to Girls’ Night Out. Nora asks Renee to give Pia a chance because Pia is a good person. Renee looks skeptical. Similarly, we then have a scene of Pia and Christina in a separate limo on their way to Girls’ Night Out. They both appear to be excited and open to having a good time.
Nora and Renee arrive at the bar first. As they are waiting, Renee asks if they are early or if the other girls are late. Nora says that Pia is usually late. Renee interviews that a person being late is disrespectful, and she appears to add that to the list of things she does not like about Pia.
Pia interviews that she likes Renee. She says that Renee is beautiful and sweet and “has everything going for her.” (So, she obviously has no idea that Renee hates her guts.) Renee interviews that Pia “has no class” and is “exactly what I thought she would be” and has a look on her face that indicates that this isnot a good thing.
Renee starts her part of the conversation by telling Pia that she has heard things about Pia and about Pia’s father. She then says, “A rat is a rat is a rat.” Pia responds that she is nothing like her father, and she says that, for her whole life, her father did absolutely nothing for her. Nora interviews that she does not think the children of mobsters should be judged by their parents’ actions because they did not ask to be born into the lifestyle. In her opinion, all anyone can do if born into the lifestyle is make the best of it. Renee interviews that, not only does she not associate with rats, she also does not associate with the children of rats.
Christina asks Nora why her last romantic relationship did not work out. Nora says that when men find out who her Dad allegedly was, it causes problems because the men start to look at and treat her differently. Like Renee with Pia, Christina then jumps right into an uncomfortable conversation with Nora by telling her that she heard that Nora’s father was a hit man. Nora immediately gets an irritated look on her face, and she responds that “only weak…pu**ies ask me about that.” Christina interviews that Nora is “in La-La Land” when it comes to the issue of her father being a hit man because “Everybody in town knows.” Nora interviews that Christina angered her by asking her that question.
The women continue to do shots. Christina tells Renee that she loved Renee when she first met her. The ladies then start comparing the shoes they are wearing. At one point the subject of “hooker shoes” comes up, and Nora says she is wearing them because she told herself, “I’m going to be like Pia tonight.” At that point, Pia tells Nora that she has to address something with her, and she confronts Nora with what her cousin told her that Nora said about her behind her back. Nora says, “Tell him to get it on tape…It’s hearsay.” She also says that if she has something to say about Pia, she will say it to Pia’s face. She flat-out says she never said that. Pia chooses to believe Nora, and the two of them decide to squash and drop the issue.
Meanwhile, Christina is intently watching this exchange between Pia and Nora. She interviews that she thinks Nora is lying. Renee interviews that she would not blame Nora if she did say those things about Pia. Christina decides to jump in the middle of Pia and Nora’s conversation by telling Pia that she and Nora should have handled and dropped the issue the very next day after Pia heard about it instead of waiting until now. Both Pia and Nora basically tell Christina to stay out of it and mind her business. This angers Christina, and she says, “F*ck you guys!!” She then tells Pia, “Don’t cry to me when (Nora) talks sh*t about you again!” Pia takes this well (insert sarcasm here) and tells Christina to “shut the f*ck up” and calls her a dummy. This appears to make Christina even angrier.
At a certain point, both Pia and Christina stand up as if they are about to come to blows. Nora stands up and gets between them to break it up. Christina then throws her drink at Pia, which ends up almost (or actually) hitting Nora, who moves out of the way. Pia and Christina then lunge for each other and immediately start punching each other and pulling each other’s hair (…Ummm…how did we get here?!). So, in the middle of what appears to be very nice establishment in Chicago, two grown women, namely Pia and Christina, are brawling like prize fighters. They end up being in some type of head and body lock, each having punched each other and pulled each other’s hair. They are now both holding on to each other’s hair for dear life without any signs of letting go. At this point, bouncers or security (or members of the film crew) rush over and pull them apart. Renee interviews that “Pia just has no class. She’s just a piece of sh*t!”
And that ends the very first episode of Mob Wives Chicago. If you missed last night’s sneak peak of the first episode, be sure to tune in for the official premiere on Sunday, June 10, 2012 on VH1.
Thanks Detox! Excellent job on the Mob Wives Chicago preview, I can’t wait to read your blogs all season! xoxo Lynn~
Mad Men Episode 11: The Other Woman by Aurora
The team working on the Jaguar account are tossing around taglines. Rizzo says, “Jaguar, the mistress who will do things your wife won’t.” but Don is not amused and reminds them that a tagline containing the word mistress will not work for everyone. You think? Ginsberg suggests another tagline that just might work. Don looks at his watch and decides they all need a break. That being said Don is the one that needs a break not the others. Did you see Don smacking the cigarette box? I remember my Father doing that.
Peggy asks Don to sign off on a project but he tells her that until Jaguar is done she is in charge of all other projects and to deal with it. She understands and tells him done deal as she watches Joan deliver a very expensive lobster lunch to the Jaguar team via Mr. Sterling from The Palm restaurant. The Palm has been a fixture in New York since 1926 and is known for its steak and lobster. You can see the envy and disdain in Peggy’s eyes as she watches the team gleefully attack the food. Poor Peggy.
Pete and Ken are dining with a big time car dealer (I mean big) discussing the Jaguar account. This asshole has voting rights on the whole ad campaign and they want to make him happy. He indicates to the two that he really “likes” the beautiful red head that works in their office. Who doesn’t? Maybe they can arrange a date for him? I have to tell you this episode made me extremely uncomfortable all around.
“Cute” Megan is in bed studying for a really good part and Don walks in drink in hand and they start discussing the “mistress” edge slash tagline for the Jaguar account but Megan’s response to the whole idea is not what Don wanted.
Pete talks with Joan about the proposal that was given to him and Ken by the “asshole” car dealer. Joan looks shocked and asks Pete what he would do if someone asked him to procure his wife Trudy to do the same? Pete unfazed asks Joan how much it would take for her to seal the “deal”, she replies “I don’t think you could afford it.” I’m telling you this episode just keeps getting me more upset!
Peggy subs for Ginsberg on the Chevalier Blanc campaign while he is working on the Shaguar campaign, oh sorry I meant, Jaguar. The Chevalier people want to go in a different direction and Peggy saves the day by redirecting the product to women versus men. Peggy saves the day!
Pete discusses the “asshole” dealers proposal with the partners and they all seem a bit shocked. Pete “the pimp” let’s them know that they may lose this crucial account if Joan doesn’t comply. Don walks out of the meeting clearly upset by the whole idea but the rest decide to offer Joan $50,000 if she agrees to this morally corrupt proposal.
Don tells the Jaguar team to drop the whole mistress concept because it is immoral, you think? Harry praises Peggy on her on the fly rescue of the Chevalier account. Peggy informs Don that she had to change the direction of the campaign and it will now be shot in Paris. We can all see that Don is not happy with this and tells her that once the Jaguar account is taken care of Ginsberg will again be working on Chevalier. The two get into it and Don throws money at Peggy and states, “Here, go to Paris.” Oh, Gloria Allred where are you?
Ken tries to comfort Peggy in his man way and tells her that Don’s reaction has a lot to do with his frustration in regards to the Jaguar account but that is little comfort to her.
Lane puts a bee in Joan’s bonnet and “suggests” that she should ask for a 5% share in the company should she go along with the Jaguar proposal, using his own prior mistakes as an example.
Megan gives Don a nooner, or afternoon delight so he will be confident for his meeting. My husband just reminded me that I should start doing that, yeah right!
Pete tells Trudy that things at the office will get crazy, busy once they have procured the Jaguar account and he will “need” a apartment in the city. Trudy will have none of that and he better start liking the “burbs” says she. You go Trudy!
Joan comes home to a smelly apartment and a very broke fridge. She gets into a tiff with her Mother and realizes that she may have to compromise herself to make a better life for her family. I really don’t like this whole situation and I know that many women had to do things like this to make a better life for themselves.
Megan tells Don that she has been called back for the part but if she gets it she will have to go to Boston. Don is not happy about this and lets it be known and Megan accuses him of wanting her acting career to fail.
Joan makes an appointment with Pete and informs him that if she is to partake in Jaguars account, you know what I mean, she will become a 5% partner and that’s, that. Joan will have to take care of the paper work of course.
Ginsberg shows Don a new Jaguar tagline. ”Jaguar, at last something beautiful you can truly own.” Don seems pleased.
Pete informs Don about Joan’s proposal. Don goes to Joan’s apartment to dissuade her from the whole situation. Joan thanks him for his time and wishes him “good luck” on his presentation. This episode is making me feel so dirty.
Peggy has lunch with an old colleague from work, Freddy Rumsen, he looks good after rehab by the way. She is griping about how she is not appreciated by her so called colleagues and he suggests she look for another job and he will help her. This is your moment Peggy!
Don presents the Jaguar pitch to the Jaguar bigwigs and “asshole” dealer smiles at him.
Joan spent the evening before with the “asshole” dealer and did what she thought was needed. Joan asks Don the next day how the presentation went and he tells her, “We’ll see.”
Megan’s auditioning and is asked to take of her coat and turn around so the producer’s can get a look at the whole package. Okay everyone, as a woman I was very upset by this episode but considering the times (1966) I understand what is going on.
Peggy meets with a man from another agency to discuss a job, he praises her work. She writes her proposal, “Copy Chief $18,000/year,” I know, 1966 a lot for a woman in those days! The man counters with $19,000 as long as this will be their last meeting. Caching, Peggy!
Megan tell’s Don the callback didn’t go well. ”If I have to choose between you and that, I’ll choose you, but I’ll hate you for it.” she says. Don tells her that he does not want her to fail and they embrace. Finally a bright spot in this VERY dark episode!
Don and Joan look at each other in Roger’s office as they are notified that SCPD has won the Jaguar account. The office irrupts with cheers and the celebration will begin. Oh, Joan did many women have to sacrifice as you did? I have a feeling it was many!
Peggy informs Don that she has accepted an offer from another firm and he thinks it’s a ploy for a raise, not. Don is shocked and tries to renegotiate her salary but she tells him it’s not about the money. Don kisses her hand as she holds her tears back. Peggy gets her things from her office and waits by the elevator. Good luck Peggy!
This episode was very dark and made me as a woman upset, but I will have to say that it did get me thinking about all the strides that women in general have made to help the future generations in general.
Bethenny Ever After
Tonight Bravo will air the season and series finale of Bethenny Ever After, expect laughter and tears…
Julie says “goodbye” again? Haven’t we been through this already? The Skinnygirl team have a Holiday party where the Skinnygirl Margaritas flow freely, Jason and Bethenny finally move into their new apartment and Jason joins Bethenny’s team.
There is one preview scene showing Bethenny talking on the phone saying that she hasn’t told anyone this secret yet, then she calls a company meeting with all of her staff. Let’s hope this isn’t the pregnancy announcement as I would hope she tells Jason privately first. We’ll see…. We also know that Bethenny suffered a miscarriage as the series began to air this season, it could be that pregnancy or could there be a NEW pregnancy?…
This same outting was photographed and reported on by SocialiteLife, with no mention of Bethenny possibly being pregnant, none of those photos looked at all like she might be expecting her second baby. Take a look at these photos:
The article does mention that the couple seem to be happy together regardless of the previous reports that the couple are divorcing.
Real Housewives of New York
In response to Kelly tweeting to Andy Cohen a few days back about her embarrassing appearance on Real Housewives of New York being replayed:
*Kelly said that Andy should explain to viewers that she was playing a role in a TV show when she flipped out on Scary Island, especially if he’s going to be playing reruns of the show… Andy did not respond. (well played Cohen)
Would Kelly complain if she were being paid every time Bravo runs these episodes? Maybe not. All these naive bravolebrities wanted to be on tv so badly they never insisted on syndication rights, Bravo is free to show these episodes whenever they want, and the RH’s receive not a farthing. Alex McCord
“All these naive bravolebrities” includes herself, correct? Bravo had no intention of paying for re-runs and giving Housewives more money each time each episode is run
