Adrienne's answers your burning questions about Paul's pool outfit and her bbq.

on Oct 4, 20110

Oh, Paul.

I suppose I could start and end this blog with that, and I have a feeling all of you would understand. Say it with me -- in half laughter, half did-he-really-just-do-that? Oh, Paul.
Right.

In his defense, Paul does have a point. Jackpot does love to spend some "private time" in Paul's closet, and he usually leaves a present of the odorous variety behind. But it's not like I trained Jackpot to do that. I definitely never said “Jackpot, not in Mommy’s closet. Go in Daddy's!" It's more like I just haven't been able to spend a lot of time teaching Jackpot not to do that. I know, I know. I have to discipline him more (Jackpot, not Paul. Then again. . .). Any tips to help me out with him (Jackpot or Paul, take your pick) would be much appreciated. Bear in mind that there are three things you can count on -- death, taxes, and that Jackpot is going to have a mind of his own. The problem is that I'm a little amused by it. He's just so cute, you know? (Jackpot, not Paul. Fine, fine. Paul, too.)

OK, onto the rest.

You are SO funny. I loved the scene with the dogs and I have one suggestion for Jackpot's house-training. A nice cozy crate! That will speed up your house-training and eventually, Jackpot will think of it as his private den and Paul can walk into his closet and not worry about little surprises. You and Paul make the show so much more enjoyable without all that nasty drama. Bravo should give you your own show. It would be hysterical.

Your friends were sooooo mean to your friend Brandi. Kyle is a bully & her sis has some obvious issues. Dana was also a meanie too. So happy to see a sweetheart of a housewife like you!

Adrienne, Love you, love Paul. My husband and I have the same relationship (minus the moola) for 29 years. I know I should cut him a little more slack sometimes but hey, that's our relationship. He has my back. Paul has yours. We are lucky bitches!

Too bad you weren't able to attend the Game Night at Dana's! Your friend, Brandi, could have really used a level headed someone to watch her back. Kyle, Kim & even the hostess, Dana were utterly ruthless! While she may not have made the best 1st impression at your backyard party, she in no way did or said anything to deserve all the disrespect & humiliation she got at Dana's. And not one person stepped in to help! Very un-classy!

Hello Adrienne:) I absolutely Love you and Paul!! It totally tickled me that the Fabulous Jackpot was leaving presents for Paul in his closet. Your grin was so funny as he mentions Jackpot's gift. I am obsessed with the fedora you are wearing in the Oct 10th episode at lunch with Brandi it looks like a Burberry but I can't seem to find it anywhere........ Please help a girlfriend out and give me some more info on your hat so I can buy one for myself. A huge fan of yours:) Merrie

Love this blog. Its so nice to see you smile! You gotta love Paul, jumping into the pool with his scrubs on and proudly showing off his "not quite a 6 pack" abs was hysterical and shows how real he is! You are a wonderful role model for women of all ages. Go a little easier on Paul and show a little more lovin' at times to him! You are so the one I would love as a friend.

Hi Adrienne! You and Paul crack me up. Just as my husband cracks me up. We've been married for 24 long and wonderful years. Wonderful for him, long for me, :) I thought you might get a kick out of that.

Well , I hope you keep your husband. It's easy to see he is a great guy and cares for you. Is he hands on with the kids? Honestly, you two are a super couple and best dressers on the show. Looking forward to seeing more of you. :)

Hi Adrienne! Let me start off by saying you are my all time absolute favorite H.W. There are so many things I admire about you... Every week I look forward to watching the RHOBH and I'm like "Gosh she is so great" your non-judgemental and certainly the peacemaker. Always trying to keep it drama free. You work extremely hard and you never brag or flaunt about what you have. You are kind, caring, considerate, and very deserving of what you have worked so hard for in life. LOL Paul is sooo funny! I love him too! Thank you for another great season. I look forward to many more. Oh" one more thing... Jackpot is wayyyyy cuter then Jiggy! Shhhh don't tell Lisa.

Thank you for keeping it real. Hey, maybe Paul could try using the door to his closet? Jackpot's "presents" have to go! I would love to know what the initial attraction was between you and Paul.

Your chef is wonderful. Please do not be harsh with him. His comments are true. Lisa would be the first one to laugh with him. Ida is a trouble maker.

Adrienne-my favorite of all, was your birthday, when Paul surprised you with your gorgeous German Shepherd. The look on your face and instant love that you had for the dog proved that you care sooooo much more about living breathing things and not material. This shines clearly through in your demeanor when dealing with people. Very caring, listening and always willing to help "make it better" for those around you. You have the patience of a saint especially when you took Kim to the last game of the season. She was blabbing away as the game started, Paul was trying to have patience and enjoy the game with you, but you kept both of them happy by dividing your attention and still watching your team. Very sharp! One of a kind. If it weren't for your interaction on the show, I would have lost interest in the one-sided characters and tuned out this season. Wishing you and your family health and happiness always! Lisa C.

First of all..... Be nice to Paul. He really loves you. We can all see it in the way he looks at you. I think at times you are quick to fly off the handle with him. I know that the crews edit heavily so perhaps there's alot we didn't see for your dinner party, but I think that when you were yelling at Paul that he was being rude, you should have stopped and realized that your own behavior was making your guests uncomfortable which in itself was rude. I never expected to see that from you since you have always appeared to be in control and the peacemaker. The dinner party episode left me wondering if there was hope for you and Paul. The next episode put that worry to rest thankfully. Ok enough lecturing you about Paul.

I Really enjoyed the show last season. This season, not so much. You and Lisa are the only down to earth people left on the show. (And Lisa lets her puppy drink out of expensive glasses, but I still think she's down to earth compared to the others). The episode this week had me rolling my eyes. I might be in the minority, but I think Brandi is a breath of fresh air. I think that ever so now and again, the ladies need a touch of reality. And Kyle practically fainting when Brandi said the cock-a-doodle-doo word was way over the top. You'd think she was a nun or something and didn't have a hottie for a hubby. I have a son so I'm used to the Mom-I-Need-To-Go-right-now routine when they just whip it out and go. It's funny from ages 2-5. When they turn 6 they should know better. And scolding them about it, most mothers with sons know that it goes in one ear and out the other.

I don't care too much for miss I-got-$25,00- glasses-on. I can give you 25000 reasons why I don't like her. I think Camille is a little more likeable this season and I think that Kyle is replacing her as the housewife people love to hate. I know that Taylor went through alot in the past few weeks but watching her in the episodes, even though I am aware of what has happened to her since those episodes were filmed, I'm not really sympathetic. I think Lisa caught on to her early on and I'm looking forward to Taylor's battles with Brandi.

I think Russell was severely misunderstood and I felt sorry for him all last season. Now I'm sorry because I think someone should have taken him aside and talked to him. Just talked. Not talked about him. But sat down and had a conversation with him. If you go back now and watch the seasons from last season, you're watching a man get more and more out of his element and he's not comfortable and no one noticed. I'm not saying the show drove him to doing what he did, I'm saying someone on the show might have been able to stop it IF they had only stopped to say hi. Not a superficial hi, air kiss air kiss, mwah mwah have to run. But a "hey man, how's it going?"

Hopefully there will be a third season. I'd tune in to see you and La Lisa, Camille and Brandi. I think that the others are wearing out their welcome. I'm not sure what Kim's purpose is anymore other than to appear stoned.

You are my favorite. Real, Classy, and funny! Kyle needs to stop hating on people. She seems like a mean girl and I use to really like her :( Help these ladies please! Kim needs help the most :( I like her but she needs help. Her and Taylor should never hang out together again. :) Anyways, I think your awesome!!!

Hey Adrianne, I just wanted to comment to you about Paul. I have notced that you 2 are definatly much more distant this season. And your the only one who knows your heart and how much you love your husband. I think that there is no such thing as perfect people. I think that we are ALL hard to live with at times and the one thing that helps me keep my mind in check is this, that there is always somebody else who's willing and able to except all of your husbands flaws, if yoou won't/can't. TRUE LOVE conquers all. If it's true love, everything will work itself out. But at the end of the day, where do you see yourself? Home with your husband, or elsewhere? I do hope and pray that it's NOT elsewhere! I love you guys and I want to thank you so much for doing the show! Your a STRONG and BEAUTIFUL woman! Keep on ROCKIN' IT GIRL!!!

I think your husband, Paul, made a spot-on comment about a newer, younger woman coming into the group. I'm glad you brought your friend, Brandi, into things, she's a bit refreshing and to the point. The welcome she received from Kyle was a bit frosty and critical.

I also find you to be the most tolerant of all the ladies. There is an innate kindness there. I watch you giving the benefit of the doubt consistently, and if you do make a comment, then the other ladies should pay attention. You have patience and that is a great marker of character. I greatly admire that. I also think you have an extremely loyal husband. Good for you! And...nice shoes.

LOVE that German Shepherd of your Adriene. What a beauty! It seems he is much more well-trained than Jackpot....this is common with smaller dogs vs. bigger dogs. DONT let Jackpot poop in your house, it'll never stop!!! Use the same training on him as you do on Visco. Treat him like a big dog and you won't have any accidents!!

I agree that Lisa should not allow her dog to drink from your glasses. I also feel that you should have stepped in with your chef regarding his snarky comments about Lisa. Perhaps some passive-aggressive behavior on your part Adrienne?

I noticed that tooooo about the chef. It's nice Adrienne that you have a good relationship with your staff but that guy was out of line. He is more of a snob than anyone I have seen on RHOBH. Well, except Camille.

Adrienne, You're such a delight to watch! You're always very real and true, and seem to try to find the good in all situations! You don't put on a mean girl act, and that is SO refreshing to see in reality tv, especially Housewife franchise reality tv! The fun banter between you and Paul is always a great time to watch! You both are very cute, and you can tell that there is an underlying sweetness in all the good fun! Looking forward to the rest of the season! You Rock!

I really like you Adrienne...think you are classy and for the most part stay out of the B.S. and keep it real and don't play the mean girl (um...that would be you, KYLE). I saw a preview for next week with you telling Kyle that Kim might have been wasted on your trip to Sacramento. Why do you ladies have to film and say these things about Kim on camera? Just boggles my mind! This should be dealt with privately and NOT on camera! If Kim really has issues, please don't continue with how the last season ended. To me, that was one of the worst things I saw on the RH franchise. Please be Kim's friend and help her Privately! I'm shocked to see you talking to Kyle about this on film!

Your so funny. Your relationship seems so normal it almost makes people think something is wrong. I find myself at times excusing my husband as well yet he is my best friend and I would never trade him in either. Dogs can be so funny as well, when you have 2 that play you can watch them for hours. I may not have the same financial status as you but your down to earth and it's great.

Thanks for the insights. You've really impressed me this season! You're not always (shown as) the warmest, kindest person, but you're honest, slow to judge others, and it seems when you give your heart to a friend, it's for keeps. Thanks for being willing to share with us.

First - you asked for help with the poop problem. If you leave his food down all of the time then he will poop whenever, and as often as, he eats. One thing I know will work. Feed him 2 x's a day. Leave the food down for 15 minutes at the most. If he doesn't eat within that time frame pick the food up and feed him that night. Do NOT double his food to make up for the meal he chose not to eat. Do the same thing in the evening. Food down for 15 minutes and up on the counter if he chooses not to eat. He will not starve. He will start to eat when the food gets placed. Once you've got that procedure in place take him outside or have someone take him outside and stand out there until he goes. Even if it's an hour! Once he goes then praise him over and over. Once a dog eats their body will start to 'want to go' anywhere from 15 minutes to 30 minutes. The most important thing is to not leave his food down. You can regulate his bowl movements according to how often he eats. TRUST ME Adrianne, I'm a wise MUTT!

Ask the Dog Whisperer to make a house call. Make sure Paul is there too because he is really training the pet owners more than the dogs.

Adrienne, I'd first suggest that you only give Jackpot a little bit of an area of your large home to stay in until he's potty trained. Maybe just in the kitchen (non-porous floors)? I've also had great luck with Poochie Bells...which are little bells you hang on the door which the dog goes out to go to the bathroom. They have instructions on how to introduce the dog to the bells and how to train them to ring the bells when they have to go -- it is GENIUS. We trained my Havanese with the bells in honestly -- 2 days! But the main thing you need to do is not let him have run of the house -- he'll never learn that way. Good luck!

Your the only one that I really enjoy watching on RHOBH. Like Kyle and Lisa but, their comments can be a tad mean girl. Hope they watch themselves before BRAVO fires them like they did Jill from RHONY.

I love that you can see how much Paul really loves you every time he looks at you and it's in his eyes. As for Jackpot, too cute. You have to treat puppies like babies and keep them on a tight potty and feeding schedule. I have never crated, just let themout first thing in the am, noon, if you can or train to go on "wee pads" or paper, and around 5pm and again before bedtime; tenish. You have servants you can schedule to do this. They're jut like babies. Plus, give him cardboard boxes to shred. The first 2 years, mine shredded into a million pieces everyday and then one day just stopped. But you can't leave shoe ou anywhere during the first 3 years. Love you all!
