Oh hello there..... we meet again. I'm a bit off my blogging game recently so I really appreciate those of you who've stuck around and have sent such nice emails. Two stellar episodes have past since I last chimed in and I'll touch on last week's briefly in a moment. What I'd like to lead with here is some new artwork.
I sadly am without any new fiercely-styled photos from my 11 year old nephew of his mannequin Martinique. Bummer. I get that creativity is fluid and styling his mannequin isn't always where his interests lay. As I semi-patiently await new pictures, I'd like to share this story about him as relayed via my sister. Picking her son up from a play date, the first words out of his mouth were, "What are your three favorite trends?" My sister who's seldom stumped replied, "Hmmmmm.... well...... ahhhhhhh...... I'm going to have to think that over and get back to you on that. What are yours?" Without missing a beat, he answered, "Shrunken jackets, high waisted skirts, and ankle boots." Do I hear a snap, snap, snap? Here's a visual.
I googled those three items along with Forever 21: shrunken jacket/ Forever 21, high waisted skirt/ Forever 21....... as that's his favorite store. :) I should mention that my sister shared this story about six weeks ago so these trends may have already come and gone, but that's fashion. As Heidi Klum says, "One minute you're in and the next you're out!" My nephew and his mannequin Martinique clearly will always be in and ahead of fashion.
I was curiously looking forward to what the latest installment of the Real Housewives franchise would bring. By the way, can you buy one of those franchises? I'm looking to either get a Subway Sandwich or a Real Housewives of _____. Anyway I gotta say that I was fairly underwhelmed by these women. Sure they're rotten stinky filthy rich, weigh in collectively at 200 lbs, have faces like ice cubes, and at least one of them has a duck bill, but I don't know..... I'm sure they'll grow on me. Speaking on duck bills, let's get into Taylor Armstrong.
I don't remember what she does, if does anything other than eat cotton candy and get molten lava injected into her face. And those lips! Those glorious silly putty hotdog bun lips! That's a face, mouth, forehead, and bleached head of hair that I can safely say I approve of. Her relationship may be 80% business with 20% pleasure, but that head of hers is 100% my reality TV fantasy fulfilled! Nice to meet you Taylor.
Next we have an absolute lunatic who just so happens to be Paris Hilton's aunt and she's called Kim Richards.
I titled this posting "Boo!" for three reasons. What could those possibly be? Well......... 1. We are sooooooooooooo close to celebrating the most holy of all the holy holidays Halloween. Oh my beloved Halloween, why do you only come once a year? Boo! 2. These women call eachother that word sometimes in a loving manner but more often in an I'm gonna cut you bitch way. 3. I'm saying Boo on the fact that I've been sick as a dog for way too long. I had the worst hangover of my life which sadly morphed into the flu and couldn't quite tell where one ended and the other began. BOO! Anyway, I'm back in the land of the living now so, so, so onto the posting.
I was completely ill when I watched Monday's show so it's a bit of a blur to be honest. I do remember Kim, her wig, and her assistant trying to exercise by walking and occasionally running around her neighborhood. It was quick but the camera cut to a street called Gilmore and I'm going to take that as an ode to me. :) Allow me that please. The other thing about Kim from that episode which stands out is the call she got to be a part of the White Party in Palm Springs. Ah ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!! 10,000 shirtless high gay guys grinding while listening to "Tardy For The Party" and I missed it! BOO! So next week we'll get to see Miss Zolciak entertain the crowd and I can not wait! From the sneak peak, right before she starts her song, Kim asks/ sings to the crowd if "They want to party?" and even that was off-key.
NeNe is clearly on an emotional roller coaster this season--- one moment in tears, next she's laughing, then that index finger is all up in someone's face and she's screaming. Here are two expressions I captured.
Those looks were just seconds apart. I do enjoy NeNe and her volatility.
Phaedra makes me laugh because she so wants us to believe that she's a refined, classly southern bell but.........
Oh hi again! Didn't mean to not blog for so long............. After years of recapping these shows, I simply needed to take a Real Housewives cleansing break while the DC segment aired. Now that those Georgian peaches have returned.... well.... it's time to get all toxified again! So let's dive right in. Crowd favorites: SheRee, NeNe, and Kim are back as is the sweet and fun-haired Kandi. Lisa joined DeYawn on the bench which honestly is fine by me. I will miss her cute husband Ed though. The other thing missing this season is a good chunk of NeNe's nose at least during her confessional scenes. Huh? I had to rub my eyes with both fists which is bad for the sensitive, wrinkle-prone under eye area as NeNe's nose size waxed and waned like the moon from scene to scene. Sure I'd had a couple drinks at that point so I thought I was just seeing things. Took a minute or two to figure out that her nose job happened during the season and that those confessional scenes were post rhinoplasty. Or would that be moosenoplasty? As NeNe's nose switched from original to aftermarket multiple times during last night's show, the first thing that popped into my head was a Mr Potato Head. Remember that toy where you could switch noses, arms, legs, and accessories? Well, I decided to make my own NeNe Potato Head toy. Why not?
