    Didn't see the episode but thing is Rosie agreed to participate in this show. She could have remained in the background like she did last year but she resonated with the viewers so Bravo most likely decided to offer her a more substantial paying role & coming out was most likely part of that deal.
    I personally like Rosie but I dislike the rest of the cast to the point where I seldom watch. I hate screaming & yelling.

I decided it was best to stay away from politics and go back to lurking and keeping my comments to myself. I am sorry if my remarks were offensive. It's a good reminder to me that I am better at reading others posts and giving "Likes" when others express my opinions. I've been here since John started the FORT in 2003 and have a pitifull number of posts because lurking and reading all 'you alls posts is so much safer than sticking my foot in my mouth! Loving the FORT!
    Punkin, I thank you for the apology, but I was not offended by your post! It was well-worded.

    ABSOLUTELY agreed.

    I don't at all like how the Rosie storyline is being handled, but facts are facts: She agreed to it. HAD to. I can easily see this going down like Snow Bunny said.

    Far as Rosie trying to find a partner . . . I seem to remember, in a couple of PIs, Kathy saying how she'd previously met two of Rosie's girlfriends. One, she liked. One, she didn't. At ALL. So, it's not like Rosie's not been out there before. But, then again, she's never been on a hunt for an SO on a TV SHOW, before, that I know of.

    And, TPTB are taking advantage of that, and she (and Kathy) are going along with it and playing into the Bravo storyline, seems like.

    Just random observations, thoughts, and MHO.

    and let's not forget the other daughter calling her father "poop." (at least, I think it was poop).....and didn't she or another daughter call him a troll once?
    And what's wrong with me, being shocked and surprised that these kids are allowed to speak that way to their parents??
    And when will I catch on to who these people really are??

    Melania called Joe "poop" and "troll". She'll have a juvie record by the time she's 12. Mark my words.

    Um. I think that's a little extreme. Being mouthy at that age is not something that's going to define you for the rest of your life as long as your parents deal with it appropriately.

    berkley college has NOTHING to do with the university of california, berkeley. they aren't even spelled the same.

    Nobody is held responsible for their actions because it's always some other reason than just bad judgement with these witches.

    I, too, read that Teresa went to Berkley College.....I saw that it has a college in Newark, NJ.....but it can't be the same college as the one here in Berkley, CA......That's difficult for even a straight A student to get into....how on earth did Teresa go thru 4 years of college??? she has no brains to begin with, let alone act/speak like someone with a good college education.
    For some strange reason, I enjoy watching these cave women behave badly......but, Bravo, please don't insult me/us by trying to sell big fat lies, like Teresa's education!

    I also loved all the hurried tap dancing Teresa did when she said something like she'd like to punch/hit Caroline (was it Caroline?? somebody tho) and she backtracked like crazy so she wouldn't seem like a violent person. Baloney. Teresa would love to punch out somebody who got in her way.

    And I don't think "went to" is the same thing as "graduated from," either. Just because she didn't get through 4 years, it's not a lie to say she "attended" a certain college.

    i think you've hit the nail on the head with rosie . . . .

    i don't think she's uncomfortable with her family's "meddling" in her love life tho . . .

The fact that she is just beginning to be interested in dating doesn't surprise me, at all. Hers might be the only true storyline Bravo is offering us this season.
