Before I blog about the reunion, which of course begs for some cattiness, let me begin with my claws out about Lisa's comment on Watch What Happens Live since I wasn't there to defend myself. First I'm absolutely convinced Lisa misheard the question and when Andy Cohen asked her (I'm paraphrasing) "Who needs a makeover the most of the group?" she heard "who has had the biggest makeover in the group?" That would, of course, be me with my weight loss. Yay! Or at least I keep telling myself that. LOL!
Since I know Lisa knows that if you dish it out you better be able take it, I must point out in retaliation that she wears the same dress cut in different colors all the time and her costume jewelry looks like it walked out of the royal collection. So maybe she should "plead the fifth" for her own sake next time! Meow.
Taylor was angry at Camille because she felt once her secret was out her life would be in danger, but at the same time she was desperate to have everyone know the truth. On some level I think, she wanted her situation to be out in the open to force her out of the marriage because she knew it couldn't continue. Camille just couldn't take the cycle anymore and snapped. I don't blame her, as it is a very taxing process weaning someone off of a toxic relationship.
You are a breath of fresh air...thank God for your laughter and lightheartedness or I'd be having a nervous breakdown!
Dana, You look amazing!! I hope we get a glimpse of your wedding!! Maybe Andy can do a special on it!
Hahaha kind of umm a catty, but funny blog. Anyway....um are you still a housewife? You weren't in that many episodes, including the finale, and will you be at the reunion?!
I think you take Brandi wayyyyy to seriously. Half the time she's just joking, and you're taking everything she says as a straight comment.
costume jewelry...honey you must not be able to see what diamonds look like because all of your experience to "costume jewelry" in your own jewelry box. i promise Lisa's wardrobe costs 10 times more then your life time earnings will ever come close to...
I thought you were going to be pretty cool until you completely turned on a guest of a party that you were "hosting" I think you're just trying to ride the coat tails of whichever HW will let you....on game night, you started out nice to Brandi until you saw how the mean girls (sisters) were treating her and you jumped on the bandwagon..hmmm could that be because they were actual cast members and thought that they could take you somewhere?? That was the impression that I got out of your behavior. Just sayin....
Dana, Lisa rocks!!! Adrienne was upset and took her sense of humor the wrong way and it was funny the Maloof Hoof comment, not mean.
Adrienne was really hitting below he belt saying Lisa sold a story it's far worse then calling a shoe a Maloof Hoof.
You were mean to Brandi you invited her into your home and let her get attacked and you laughed the entire time. Kyle and Kim were wrong the night of your party.
Hello Dana.....Congratulations on your upcoming wedding and your weight loss,by the way I think your son is major adorable....I'm glad that life has been very good to you but you have to be aware that not everyone is as financially bless as you are,maybe you could be a little discreet about your purchases,after all, having money does not mean good breeding,as Camille,Kyle and Lisa says, people who have money and class don't talk or brag how much they spend. Remember when you open your life to the public,one must take criticism or opinion as part of the game,don't mistake an honest observation with jealousy...Just be very grateful that you are not one of the people lining up on the food bank or unemployment office.
Why are you always the first "housewife" to blog on here even when you are not featured on the night's episode of TRHOBH? In fact, you are always the first housewife (albeit, you are not an official housewife as of yet, if EVER!) who posts her blog here. The embarrassing thing for you is that you are always the first woman posting when time and time again, you are not even mentioned on an episode. Every thing about you smacks of desperation and everyone, including the cast members get this. And the way you just jump on Brandi time after time again speaks volumes about how you view her as a threat to you being invited back as a real housewife for the third season. Sorry doll, I do not see that happening for you.
I agree that you are a breath of fresh air! I too am NOT a Brandi fan. She drives me crazy and I'm shocked that the fans of the show are liking her so much. I was hoping they'd give her the boot. You are such a riot and gorgeous too!! BTW LOVE your glasses and I'm sure the other ladies spend outrageous amounts on things we'll never hear about so people need to get over it. Take Care!!
You're so sad...and your 15 min are up. Actually, they've been up for quite some time now. Please stop posting. No one cares. We read it only because you're usually the first to comment on an episode even though most of the time you're not even featured.
wow you really wish you could have been where Brandi was as she lasted the season and you didn't. You have lost weight, you have a wonderful life be grateful don't be so catty about everything. Nobody cares about 25000 dollar sunglasses or million dollar lollipop cases there are people who are suffering in this world.
Making out means kissing to some people, copping a feel to others and the full Monty to the older crowd!!!! So I can see the confusion too--I've had a similar misunderstanding using the phrase. I think each of the Housewives this season were fun to watch. I am probably the most disappointed in Kyle's treatment of Brandi and Adrienne's treatment of Lisa. Your assessment of how the each hurt each other in the worst possible way seems to be very true. I hope they do reconcile as well. Thanks for adding to the blog, I enjoyed watching you this season.
Go Dana, I think you nailed it on the head with your blog. It's sad to see Adrienne and Lisa fight but when it comes down to it there is more then meets the eye. And I think both can be catty when needed and they both dealt it tonight, it's only fair if you deal it then you should be able to take it as well. And as kyle said both are queen bee's.
Huh? why are you still blogging? do you get paid for it? you seem to always be the first gal to post. So drunk you don't remember the night in Vegas? Sounds like you + your "girl" Tay-Tay. She was so drunk she claimed to not remember her hissy-fit at Malibu. Oh but yes, she did remember Kyle doing her "splits" All good wishes to you and your girl in your future endeavours...with the condition being your adventures aren't broadcast on telly. Be thankful for your 15 minutes + move on.
Thank you so much for your much valued insights. They have definitely cemented whatever opinions I have already formed of you.
Good luck to you in all your future endeavours and I certainly hope one of those endeavours will not be the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 3.
Brandi was joking when she said she made out with Camille. Camille was standing right there when she said it and they all laughed. It seems you, Adriene, and Taylor all lack a sense of humor in one way or another. Oh...and speaking of people being caught in lies, your friend Taylor went on national tv claiming russell beat her on June 16, fracturing 40% of her orbital socket. She should have probably checked her date book first and not have picked a date where she was photographed & video'd all week with no injuries 2 her anywhere. Your friend is dancing on her daughter's father's grave and couldn't wait to do it! I can't wait for Brandi to call her out on it next week! Your mean tweeting are only highlighting your lack of class and your insane jealousy. Your desperate attempts to stay relevent make you look pathetic. Definitely not Bravo material. Alas, enjoy your last 2 minutes. Hope they are better than the first 13. Im having trouble remembering them now...
Love you Dana.
Listen to the critics yes, you never know what you might learn. However, you just might need to sometimes wait a little bit longer, edit a little more ,or better still you DON'T have to answer everyone out there. Critics are a part of life for all of us. Don't take it personal, some people love you in spite of what you do/say. Other people hate you in spite of what you do/say. When you answer these attention seeking haters, it just gives them another log to roll on the fire.
There are always at least three ways to say any of everything, try to find the one that gets your message across without making things worse. JMHO
Hope to see you back next season. :)
I still see Brandi as refreshingly honest. While I can see why Adrienne might have been hurt by a couple of remarks Lisa made regarding her shoe line. I also felt it looked like Lisa was being ganged up on. Much in the same way Brandi had been at your party. So it was nice to see Brandi speak up for Lisa. To me that took a certain amount of courage on her part as a newcomer. I guess that is why you couldn't defend Brandi that time.
I have a feeling you and Brandi are vying for the same job. That's where the cattiness comes from. You forgot to mention what the women had to say about your 25k sunglasses. I to know many wealthy people. The rule of thumb is to never ever talk numbers. It's in very bad taste. If your back next season take the advice of the other ladies. DO NOT TALK NUMBERS!!! I will say this. You have a naturally beautiful face very soft and sweet.I can tell you haven't had any plastic surgery. You don't need it.Oh and your hair is very sleek and shiny. You're a very pretty woman.You're a tiny little thing. Why did you need to lose weight?
I really liked this blog. :) You r cute. I don't care that you tell people how much things are. I don't care what things cost so I think its funny. Maybe its those that care too much that get all weird-ed out by that.
I thought it was awful & terribly rude for the ladies to gang up on Lisa.What is up w/that? Jealousy perhaps? And how can friendships be repaired after publicly critisizing Lisa? Adreienne believes some reporter from a cheap tabloid instead of her old friend,Lisa? They must not truly be friends,none of them!
I commend you for blogging nearly every week even though you were hardly featured on the show. Keep trying to be relevant!
@Deee Jay Kissing IS making out.
It's sad to see the Beverly Hills chicks not getting along (Adrienne & Lisa)... they've become my favorite clique. It's replaced Seinfeld (reruns) for me! :)
Brandi was KIDDING about making out! You people don't know how to take a joke! Lisa was also kidding about the shoe line and many thought it was cute, but to accuse Lisa of selling stories is NOT a joke. Teasing about an inanimate object and attacking a person's integrity are NOT the same thing!
I think you summed up the Lisa/Adrienne situation very well. That was pretty insightful. I will say though...I still don't understand the bachelorette party issue ? Because she felt that Pandora should promote her business somehow? Seems like an awful lot of pressure to put on friends to constantly be accountable for her businesses sucess. Just saying.
Why all of the piling on Lisa? She didn't go on and on about you like you did about her....The thing is that the fans LOVE Lisa and it just makes all of you seem so petty and mean. Also, Brandi is awesome. BTW, I do think you are very pretty and probably a good person...less meow though maybe.
Dana, congrats on loosing a lot of weight! That being said you do not how to dress that probably has a lot to do with you loosing weight and I agree you need a makeover. Lisa dresses her age and she wears what she knows looks good on her so I don't really think she needs a total makeover. As for brandy I think she has mostly taken the high road when it comes to your friend Taylor, and I don't if she has ever done anything to you. I'm not sure why you hate her.you seem like a nice person who has yet to find her true sel. Best of luck
Wow. You are in your own world that shifts like the wind. You are "supportive" of whatever side is "winning" or that Kyle is leading. Wannabe- just be yourself. You make a lot of excuses.
What exactly are you getting by being on the Kyle bandwagon, it must be something good fro you to be so for Kyle when it is obvious to everyone else that she is wrong. Ganging up on a supposed friend is so petty and mean. Lisa is seen several time defending Kyle and being in her corner that to see Kyle quickly jump up to beat on Lisa is hard to watch. Kyle made sure she got an apology from Lisa yet didn't apologize to her for the "prey on the weak" comment. She is the one that is calculating and manipulative.
To be quite honest I think you are a little swayed in the Taylor direction. I'm a very compassionate person especially when it comes to abuse...I was abused as a child up into my teens so I feel peoples pain when they talk of it. I would never say Taylor was faking anything its just she did not handle anything as it should have been. She was putting her daughter at risk every single day and for her future perspective of what life should be as a woman and what to look for in a man...how much more dangerous can you be where you child is concerned. She may as well have put Kennedy in a Tiger cage with a hungry tiger to babaysit. Taylor obviously knew what Russel was capable of and there fore should have kept it private instead of putting your friends at risk as she did if she could not bring herself to leave the SOB. None of my friends had any idea of the tremendous hell I was going through until these past 7 years or so. I'm now 50 and still dealing with the scars from those days but my daughter saw a non abusive up bringing as my wonderful husband saw and knew what I was going through and got me out of it when I was 16 and we got married and still today are happily married. Your an enabler to be making excuses thats not in my opinion the right way to handle it anymore than what Taylor did to her friends or Kennedy. Taylor had or has low self esteem and could not bring herself to leave him on a permanent basis. My thought is if he had not commited suicide she would be back with him today and still dealing with the abuse. Shame on you Dana for making excuses and shame on you for being so low class to be shouting what you paid for things you purchased. So what if Lisa wears costume jewelry to wear expensive real jewelry in everyday life shopping or just around the house is careless but I somehow bet she has a heck of a vault of the good stuff to break out for those special occasions.
I wasn't even sure you were on the show. You blog every week, but you are never seen. The few times you were on the show, it was to flash your money around. While these other women may be catty, at least they aren't always going on about how much money they have. I enjoy the show for the crazy way their loves turn out, not because of ugly, overpriced sunglasses.
You seem to bend in whatever direction the wind blows. In other words, you agree with who ever you're talking to at the time. YOU are trying to fit in way to hard. Are you afraid to express your own opinion? BTW, nobody cares how much you spend. If you and Taylor are such good and close friends, why didn't she ever tell you about her abusive relationship? Really,she waits until the man is dead to talk all this crap, when he is not here to defend his self.
First off - Lisa is FABULOUS! Please refrain from talking crap about a woman that carries herself as a lady. Her entire wardrobe is beautiful and of all people YOU need not make judgments about how people dress, look or behave.
Is this whole post just sour grapes because you aren't popular? Grow up.
Just because Camille denied the kiss doesn't mean it didn't happen. Just because Taylor said she didn't know doesn't mean she's telling the truth. Saving face…heard the term? We all do things we aren't proud of and fib to cover it up. I know you have or you wouldn't be trying so hard to fit in and call others out.
You really need some help.
Love your blog and everything you say is true. Brandi does stretch the truth about everything, that's for sure! You notice the second she comes in, it's catty comments, cursing, etc. I can't believe Lisa would want that kind of person around her yet Brandi says they've become so close! EWWWW I seriously hope you're on next year to bring some calmness and realness to the show. Brandi - not so much. She's only famous because of Eddie & LeAnn and her comment last night was so rude when they were talking about famous husbands. Anyway, not that you need the luck...but best of luck! A fan.
Love you Dana and your loyalty to Taylor. So many people have gotten on the "Let's hate Taylor" band wagon. I don't I feel so bad for her and what she has been through. Thank you for standing by her side. I hope to see you on the next season.
WOW, I found last night's show to be hypocritical. They ALL have made catty comments about eachother so to hold Lisa to a standard in which they don't hold themselves was frustrating. I suggest they go back and watch their OWN behavior, especially Kyle!! Most disturbing was Adrienne .. I found that she listened to hearsay & convicted Lisa (reminded me of Jr High). When Lisa was telling her she didn't say/do those thing's Adrienne wouldn't even listen to her. I have to agree w/ Lisa, an employee should NEVER speak poorly about anything their boss does or associates with, in the "Real World" an employer would never allow that!! Lastly, to gang up 3-1 on a friend is deplorable, especially when when you're just as guilty. As for Brandi, although she can speak out of turn, the way she has been treated by the Richard sister's and some of the cast, can you really blame her for her response's?
Being somewhat involved yet, at the same time, removed from the situation, you offer a different perspective and insight that can support or refute these claims and accusations based on first hand knowledge. You're not afraid to say it like it is and that's an admirable quality. All the best to you.
There were a couple of allegations where Adrienne was taking the word of other people over Lisa (regarding Bernie and regarding selling stories). I completely believe Lisa did not sell stories and I'm sure that reporter told Camille that she did just did so to trick her into selling hers. And even if Lisa thought Bernie's food was dry SO WHAT - she's can't have an opinion?
I really can't stand Taylor or her quivering lip/screwed up crying face one more minute (with all due respect to the horrible nightmare she's been through). She's an attention seeking whiner and I hated having to sit through (and waste reunion time) on that subject.
Dana, you did come off as trying to hard to be instant BFF's with the ladies and your name dropping was obnoxious but you are very pretty and have a bubbly, fun personality BUT you and your "fans" need to chill on twitter - you're overdoing it and overselling yourself.
Dear Dana, I think you are very sweet and you mean well. But please be careful of Taylor. I hope you come back next season. You are a doll and stay sweet !!!
Dana,I'am afraid Lisa will find out about Brandi the hard way threw Ken,she missed judge Cedric that she knew for years now she is trusting Brandi that came on the show just to bash her ex-husband I don't like cheaters but why go on and on about him he didn't only cheat with one woman but two that we know of but I guess thats all she has to offer the show she put her feet in her mouth with telling Gerad Butler personal business,fake marrying her friends husband all for attention she will go to far with Lisa.
Dana- Good for you on your recent weight loss! Now to business. Its so obvious that your blogs are one sided. Taylor and Adrienne do no wrong and Lisa and Brandi are the bad girls, blah blah blah. Do you really think there is something wrong that Lisa took such offense to someone questioning her integrity? Do you really think a business is more important than that? But you are also the person that thinks bragging about how much something costs is appropriate. I feel bad for you. Money comes and goes, with out integrity you have nothing. You may want to get your nose out of Adriennes butt and learn something from Lisa. I'm just saying.
Will you please stop! Lisa has a wicked sense of humor which I love. As far as the Maloof Hoof, I thought it was clever and funny. If Adrienne had a sense of humor, she would agree. The difference between Lisa and Adrienne is that Lisa worked for her money and Adrienne inherited hers!
I see you've decided to align yourself w/Adrienne. I get it that she takes her business ventures very seriously. That is commendable. Maybe the "Maloof Hoof" while funny to most of us was offensive to Adrienne. However, she has absolutely NO REASON WHATSOEVER to be offended that Pandora had her party at PH in Vegas. It was HER party and HER decision. Adrienne needs to let it go and stop being petty.
Dana, You are very pretty and seem nice, however - I have to disagree with you about Lisa. I didn't think any of the statements that Lisa made were mean spirited. I think Maloof Hoof was made in jest because it rhymed. You never heard her once say anything about the product, and Adrienne acting offended about the bachelorette party is just insane. I really don't get the hatred towards Lisa at all. I honestly think the ladies are all upset because it appears that Lisa has a ton of fans. I would just make sure you get to know her more before you make these judgments and don't just go along with what the other girls say. I do think it was kind of you to stick up for her in regards to selling stories. I think that was a load of crap, and a very low blow from Adrienne (who I liked before the reunion, now...not so sure). Anyway, best of luck to you and congrats on the weight loss, although you were fine without it! ; )
