    Re: The Real Housewives of Orange County

    I just don't get these people's spending habits. I realize it is all for sure, but "sexy" Jim buying the watches, the vacation, Alexis buying $900 worth of shoes, etc, etc. and they had to get rid of their house in short-sale... They must realize all this crap is going to come out and that they look utterly ridiculous, but what do I know. And all this while she is saying he has money. Very, very, very sad people. But yet I still watch. Makes me wonder about myself

    On the Bravo site, they have pics of the Housewives before they were Housewives.
    Gretchen looks totally different.

    It does make you wonder about them. IMO the Orange County HWs seem to be more of wannabes than those who actually have arrived. They are not really that wealthy IMO, like the Hollywood HW's. The Orange County HW's also do not have as much class. I see a big difference in them and I just don't find them to be very likable people.

    I was hoping they wouldn't show skeevy Jim this season. But they did!
    What a tool he is. Wouldn't let his own son drive with him in the car and then buys himself 20G plus watches. I thought they were having money problems? I'm tired of Alexis and all her religious B.S. and then she tells the other women about her sex life. Ew! Just EW!
    If Peggy is so into holistics and healthy living why did she put big fake boobs and Botox in her body?
    I wonder why Eddie had to chug a big glass of wine before getting into the tub with Tamra? Maybe he's only with her to be on TV?
    Gretchen is so annoying this season. But her and Slade deserve each other.
    Eh. this show wasn't as good as when it first started out. These women have become too tacky and classless.

    I taped the show and watched it tonight while I was making dinner. It made me chuckle to see how many of my own thoughts were echoed int he messages here when I came on to read! My first thought when Eddie picked up Tamra was that he just didn't seem her "type", and seeing him greet Marcos confirmed it for me for some reason. My son came it at the end of the show, just as the bathroom scene was beginning and my two comments to my son were, "Jeez, when did Bravo star doing soft-core porn?" and "I guess he has to drink heavily before this>" when Eddie was downing the wine.

    Tamra is just becoming painful to watch. She is going to "wake up" in about a year and think "Holy bleep. I did WHAT on national television??" All that about how "humpable" her new boy toy is and how they already had a poke before dinner. UGH!

    I guess we can just be thankful that she wasn't at the dinner where we found out that Slade has a magic penis, Peggy and her husband do it in the closet, and Alexis likes to blindfold Jim and tie him to the chair sometimes. (And, sorry, but I just can't see old Jimbo giving up that much control.)

    I think part of what got to me with Eddie was not just the fact that he was playing for the cameras. It was also that he'd probably be more into Marcos or Slade than Tamra.
    I was suspecting that myself. Actually Marcos is a very handsome man. Eddie, to me, is, well, meh. I mean, nice and everything, but...not the bronzed God of love that TamRAA made him out to be.

    That scene at the restaurant was really ridiculous. Juvenile. Overcompensating? The bathroom scene, well, I can't bleach my eyeballs. I can't ever unsee it. I may never be able to see crepe paper in the same way after all the TamRAA closeups.

    Re: The Real Housewives of Orange County

    Sweet Satan’s fistula this was a doozy of horror. Frankly I’m sort of glad I’m one of the ‘mos, if this is what a slide down Straight Street is like.

    But as an therapeutic prophylactic to all that slipping and sliding we get to see the Anti-Sex Goddess Ickie badgering workmen who were fixing up her house and prepping to sell it. And patronizing them in a ‘funny’ way with ‘Spanish’ because they’re all desperate for her to mock a languge with the echos of ancient Rome coursing through its veins. Not that her appendage-husband’s opinions were of any account. Ickie continues to repel the people she most wants to attract, and to ride roughshod all over the feelings of those around her. It’s quite tragic.

    So that was that and Appendage Donn is reduced to a negligible entity and Ickie lets us know she intends to negligee him quite a bit. And we cut to Saint Boob of the Rack picking up the Gretch for a shopping trip with Popgun Peggy. The Gretch can’t resist poking ‘fun’ at Saint Boob by wearing a gaudy tiara to greet her…in The Gretch’s world, resentments are nurtured lovingly and tenderly. After running up a huge bill (thought Saint Boob and FrugGod were broke?) on various bits and pieces, the gleesome threesome wind up at some mall eatery where, in true Christian God-fearing fashion, Saint Boob wants to know all about Slade’s…manly bits. Gretchen of course has sliced them off weeks ago and pops them out of her purse to show the ladies how she can make them go this way and that just by wishing it! Oh, the joys of the purse penis!

    You know, sometimes you can’t eat as much as you want to barf. This thought struck me often in this episode.

    Cut to TamRAA’s meandering thoughts about this and that with Ickie over lunch at yet another brightly painted hostelry (is it because their skin, homes and hair are so beige they like such garish places to sup?). They agree to go to Cabo because, well, Donn-appendage won’t mind or something, who knows? And what with Semi-Edible Eddie TamRAA’s got her Latino thing on.

    TamRAA and Semi-Edible Eddie have a “dinner” with Marcos, TamRAA’s sort of business partner (does she actually work?). The point is made and made and made over and over again that Semi is not Slimon’s best friend and never was, because if TamRAA was indeed banging her ex’s bestie, then she would surely be a terrible person and she cannot allow that perception to go unchallenged. For some reason they are dining outside at a restaurant so cold that it passes out Snuggies ™ so folks won’t actually go into hypothermia. California is a strange hot/cold sort of place.

    Of course, being the polite elegant people they are, TamRAA and Semi couldn’t keep their hands or tongues off each other and poor Marcos said without any irony that he was the third wheel. Of course if he ever wanted to come clean about his orientation he could have brought a date but asexual character he is, he should get used to being merely table decoration. More to come.

    Re: The Real Housewives of Orange County

    Part two
    Off to Palm Springs with Magic Crotch Slade and the Gretch, who really can’t pass up a chance to show off Slade’s missing Manly Bits and how nicely they fit in her spangly purse. (She’s sooo Texas, according to Popgun.) Nothing confirms more directly my theory that Slade’s a high-class callboy than this episode. Well, there, I’m green with envy at The Gretch. I’d love to keep him myself. They go stay with two gay hairdressery types, ride a bike in the furnace heat, and dish TamRAA over drinks. The Gretch says that she wants a ‘lease’ on her ‘best friend’ and ‘the man she loves’ because after her fiancé dying she doesn’t believe in marriage, or some such jumbled babble. When she tries to do a sentence without a snort or giggle she always gets it wrong. Syntax is not her strength. Remember “Just because you popped a baby out between your legs doesn’t give you the God Right to know how to raise it!” God Right? Jesus Left? Holy Spirt must be an independent voter then.

    Whatever, we now come to the most pathetic and inexplicable moment of fameballing I’ve ever seen. TamRAA fills a bathtup and (poor cameraman) slides out of her corsets and petticoats and stomachers and slides in, the warm and probably smelly water seeping into all the cracks and crevices, smoothing out the rough patches and obscuring the mottling of age, and invites Semi-Edible Eddie in. He says a quick prayer of thanks to Bacchus and Dutch Courage, and slides his “great body” in. Meh. I don’t find him so delectable. I mean he’s better looking than granite-faced Slimon, but…give me MagiCrotch any day. If only I played the lottery, I could win it and buy him for my very own.

    They do seem what my mum would call 'jumped up nothings.' Okies from Oklahoma (or Wandas from Witchita) with more dollars than sense to know what to do with them. And do any of them do anything for charity? Hell they even made the maid go clothesless rather than deprive little Baby Angel of 357 changes of clothing.

    I could say so much more but I don't want to start a fight in public!

    I agree - she's got quite a flexible idea of what Jesus would do. Not only does she sit with a notorious fornicatrix (isn't that a great word?) without rebuking her, but she even inquires as to the partner in sin's genitals and the skill with which he can wield them. Is that a decent topic of interest for a lady of the church? Guess so. Maybe I need to get some new-time religion! The worst thing is that she got ME thinking about Slade's Magic Crotch and your humble author nearly fainted with the thought that such things exist and can be discussed (and sliced off and popped into a small bag for whenever they are needed).

    FrugGod is really a piece of ... work. But I don't feel sorry for her. She gets a previously never-ending stream of dollars; she can order room service and swing a coffee pot around. Isn't that a concubine's lot? When she finally wakes up to how she's been used and taken for a ride, I hope she puts a very sharp knife between his ribs, but until then she's 'free, white and over twenty-one' and gets what she deserves. She can cry me a river.

    If Peggy is so into holistics and healthy living why did she put big fake boobs and Botox in her body?
    Healthy can refer to a cash flow. I think she just peed in Mamma Nutcase's bottle to humor the old bat. Anyone who can announce they are smearing apple stem cells on their face and thinks a USB drive can 'impregnate' a shiny bit of foil with hormones should be smiled at and nodded at and backed away from. Hopefully not into a corner.

    I wonder why Eddie had to chug a big glass of wine before getting into the tub with Tamra? Maybe he's only with her to be on TV?
    Well, he's not a private person. "We're terribly concerned with getting the kids used to Uncle Eddie's naked butt cheeks pistoning up and down between mummy's thighs. After all, they have to have time to think up what to tell the other kids in the neighbourhood." I'm sure this will appear in a custody battle, but again, TamRAA's free, white and well over twenty-one so they pity party guests went home a while ago.

    Gretchen is so annoying this season. But her and Slade deserve each other
    Maybe Slade's banging Andy because he's being edited more as a good sport/nudzh this season, with genital jokes and the Gretch's shrieking.
