After pleasantries are exchanged, Lisa and Kyle talk in circles as they attempt to make amends and find a way to broker peace amongst all the feuding women. Their meeting concludes with a tepid truce. . .I'm not buying that it will last. For what it's worth, I understand Lisa's being miffed at Kyle not defending her, but at the same time, Lisa is strong enough to fight her battles on her own. . .
At the equestrian center with Brandi and Yolanda, we learn that Yolanda can only afford one horse for her daughter to train with when all the other kids in the neighborhood have two or three! I was wrong about Yolanda's life -- it's not perfect. Brandi makes me laugh (or cackle like a hyena as Dean would put it) when she says she would "implode" if she signed the gag order from Adrienne. . .I like this woman and agree with Yolanda that Brandi has done all she can to diffuse the situation. Yolanda then tees off on Adrienne unmercifully. . .and a billion people in China are also wondering, "Who in this world is Adrienne Maloof?"
Off to Lisa's lovely tea party where Brandi is first to arrive. Ken drops a wicked line about all women being the same size when lying down in bed. . .which may in fact be true, but the same thing cannot be said about men. Brandi becomes a little nervous and excited at the sight of Peter/Jax, the beefcakes from SUR hired by Lisa to work the event. Taylor arrives next with a present for Lisa, a vibrator, always an appropriate gift for a ladies' tea. After Brandi takes Taylor on a tour, I arrive and it's time for me to be misinterpreted. . .again.
Marisa didn't throw brandi under the bus. Brandi is ignorant for sending that text and Marsha should have been angry. Yolanda then gets involved after she. disses Marisa for not confronting brandi. Yolanda needs to get off the show with brandi
HOW DISAPPOINTING!!! I could not BELIEVE you throwing Brandi under the bus after her being such good freind to you!!! In front of two people that HATE her, FAKE FAYE and ADRIENNE!!!! You have said on numerous occasions that you want to sleep with other men and in FRONT of your husband!!!! Then you act like what Brandi texted you was absurd!!!! You constantly complain about how your husband is not your type!! How quickly you aligned yourself with Fake Faye and Adrienne!! What a huge disappointment in you Marissa!!! Unbelievable!!!!!!
proveit2day "You're older than me"??? " I know who the Maloofs are:?? Make some sense.
proveit2day Far from the truth. A one 3 worded sentence means A: You're 12 yrs old or B: You're Adrienne Maloof.
Marisa, I like everything about you, but you really need to evaluate the way you speak to and about your husband. I know you think it's funny, but everyone can see he doesn't. Also, how would you like it of he said that about you? It's incredibly insulting and pretty tacky of you.
You are so refreshing! You call it like you see it and I love that. One of the things I find cool about Brandi, Lisa and Yolanda. You're at least real about your relationship / marriage. As is Lisa. Let's face it, not everyone can be as "perfect as Kyle and her hubby"... meaning, no one has a perfect marriage, no one. (Kyle...) Anyway, I hope you are back next season as an official housewife. =)
I don't know why people are being hard on you about your comments. I know lots of couples that "joke around" like you do about Dean, it's all playful and doesn't mean anything. I actually think you have to be pretty secure and happy in your relationship to make comments like that, specially in public. It's like Lisa saying her and Ken never have sex... Yolanda seems lovely but I think she's blowing your comments a bit out of proportion. For what it's worth I do get you!
I am sure you are a nice person. It is undeniable that you can be very judgmental and negative. The comments you made about Taylor were mean and character assassination.
Please don't follow Kyle and Kim's stories. I hope you apologize to Taylor.
i feel so bad for ur husband and his family. i was on the floor when u said u wanted to have sex with someone else AND u were not joking. u need to be kicked to the curb by Bravo and ur hubby. BTW...how would u feel if he said that on national TV about u????
Your husband should leave you, you may think it is funny, but you are totally emabrrasing the man you are supposed to love...
You are classless
What you said about Taylor was WRONG AND OUT OF LINE.
I get that you're trying to be more outspoken and interesting on screen but why is it always saying something negative about someone when you open your mouth?
First your husband, and now Taylor.
Like you said, YOU DON'T KNOW HER, so you should have left it there and shut it. You went on to bash her parenting skills, her character etc when it's clear you have no idea about it nor do you know who she is, how she does things and why. You didn't consider what she has and is going through/ dealing with either that might warrant Kennedy being at Kyle's house sometimes . Go read her blog and see for yourself how WRONG and out of line your assessment was. What did she ever do to you? You seemed angry when you said the wrong things that you did and determined to get it out. Why is that? What did she ever do to you?
You seem fun and witty in your BLOG but on SCREEN you leave much to be desired.
Missing "Million Dollar Listing" yet? This has to be so much more fun! It's about time someone with a brain (and dare I say balls) joins the frey. Loving your candor! Hope to see more of your objective observations in upcoming shows - Would love to watch you tell Adrienne to stuff a cork in it. And...WHERE did you get the amazing Caftan you wore to the Indian restaurant. I need one! Cheers from Palm Springs!
Marisa, after watching tonight's episode (2/18), you are not the rational, intelligent strong business woman/mom I thought you to be. Who in the heck would turn their gum over to Kyle at a NOSE party for Kim? Was royalty in presence? You then engaged in gossip, initiated by the mean Richards sisters about Taylor and passed judgment without knowing all of the facts. Would you like to be at the receiving end of the wrath of the immature Kim and Kyle? Not I, for there is no logic in their arguments. Just mud slinging. Maybe you can call Camille and read passages of The Art of War together. Or The Prince. Then we'll see you two mosey off into the BH sunset with Kim, Taylor, Faye and Kyle. Tootles!
At Kim's ridiculous, self-absorbed "nose party" you women were sitting at the table talking about Taylor, a discussion initiated by the evil team of Kim and Kyle. You began by stating that you knew what you were going to say was horrible, but......that's who you are. Why did you say it when you knew you were about to say something bad? You claimed you don't even really know Taylor, yet you viciously attacked her as a mother because "that's who she is"? Clearly you are not the nice woman the viewers had hoped you would be. You are just another mean gossip. You women get such a charge from talking behind one another's back. It's dreadful.
Marissa, please don't talk negatively about your husband on television any more. I don't think you mean it maliciously but since we only see a few minutes of you on TV every so often, the audience starts to assume things based on what they see. Next season, let's see you surprise him with a home cooked meal, some candles, and some passion. That would be much better.
You don't have to explain yourself! You are a great addition. THANK GOD it wasn't that evil witch Faye! I get your honesty and I love your sense of humor on the recap of last week!!'And I along with thousands of others know that the selfrighteous Adrienne is lying for sure!!
I agree. You are refreshing. You and Yolanda both. I stand up and applaud you for not being led by the nose by Kyle into hating / or pushing people off the show that she has differences with. Bravo gf! I hope to see more of you next season. You have that certain something. Don't quite know what it is yet, but I'm willing to continue watching and being a fan in order to find out.
Again, Bravo, for not drinking the cool aide.
I think you are refreshing. There are some of us out here in TV land that understand your sense of humor. I think you really need to write a book. I'm not telling you to join the bandwagon of the other ladies... I'm thinking a humorous book (fiction), novel, romance. You could write about a woman who has been married for years who is trying to put some spark in her marriage. I really believe that you are a great communicator through writing. Don't let other people's intellectual level stop you from writing these great blogs! They just don't understand your eyes roaming on the ironic and your taste for the lining in your cheek.. HA!
Glad to see you have an easy going attitude about yourself. I just wish it could rub off on Yolanda. Perhaps you and Kyle can spend enough time with her that she will be convinced to remove that stick from her arse, and loosen up. She just seems to be so self-involved with a need to be .......worshipped?
Mariassa: I believe you love your husband but if you ever loan him out, I'd like to take him out for desert with a happy ending.
Jerj Gross, I don't even know what you look like but I sure as to heck didn't need to read that. Freak...whoever you are...gross man or woman... :(
I think all of these women need to get plowed by some of the guys (and girls) at SUR....they are all sexually frustrated, thats all it is. Stop giving and getting vibrators and go get laid for real.
I appreciate the fact that you allow yourself to be grumpy on camera instead of always pretending to be perfectly polished and fake, it's refreshing. For example, when you spilled red wine on your cute white dress in Vegas - your reaction was normal and natural and funny. I think you're real, funny, and a terrific addition to the cast. As far as thinking about sleeping with other men while married? No, not me because I got that out of my system when I was young. You, on the other hand, married young. Appreciate your choice and appreciate your husband - he seems to be a gem.
Hey saw you on selling LA - really enjoyed the show. Agree with others - need to stop denigrating your hubby. Just dress him up and pretend he's the pool boy...
Marisa, You are a great addition to the show. Hang in there things will get better. I really enjoy your honesty. I understand your humor, you cause me to laugh out loud often. You are also a pretty woman. I am looking forward to seeing you next week.
Marisa: Your a great addition to this cast. Finally,someone besides Lisa who has a double digit IQ! Love your blogs and lo.ve that you bring a breath of fresh air to this stale group
You are boring and not funny. One can tell you are out of your league as you talk/write and the say "oh I didn't mean it." You and The drub Faye should go away! I hope Bravo ditches you ASAP.
Marisa, I like you so far. (LOL - do you like the "so far" addition). Perhaps viewers have a problem with your comments about Dean because we heard negative comments from Adrienne about Paul for several seasons. All the while, she referred to this bickering as friendly and assured the audience everything was fine and that's just how they communicated. Perhaps it was true. But inevitably, it must have become wearing on Paul to constantly hear negative feedback from his wife. Now they've divorced. Not saying this is the reason, but just planting a little seed to think about. He was probably no prize either. Anyway, kindness matters.
I like your humorous blogs and that you think for yourself without the typical herd mentality of many housewives. Also, your mom and mine, well they're a lot alike. Love 'em. I think it was Wynonna Judd (can't believe I'm quoting her) who said "If it's not one thing, it's your mother."
I agree with the example of Adrienne and Paul. Marisa, if you put your husband down enough times, no one is going to believe that you have any respect for your spouse. And without mutual respect, your marriage can't possibly be "fine" nor will it last, i.e. Adrienne and Paul. Especially, if people don't ever hear anything negative coming from Dean, they will think he's an angel of a husband, regardless of whether he is one or not. Many of us have issues with our husbands every now and then and we will throw out snide remarks; but it would be foolish to say that everything is "fine" in the same breath. So unless you want to let people know that you have marriage issues, stop the snide remarks; otherwise, they just think you're being mean for no reason.
You definitely get the award for the Best Line from this week's blogs..."Ken drops a wicked line about all women being the same size when lying down in bed. . .which may in fact be true, but the same thing cannot be said about men." LOL! The drama is stupid and hilarious and I totally get your candor. But you may want to balance out the Dean jokes. Keep on keeping on...
Brandi was trying to give you the opportunity to say something nice about your husband, but once again, you blew it. Yes, people may have thought about being with someone else but they don't say it on national television and they certainly don't constantly talk negatively about their spouse. I'm curious about what your marriage vows were - did you vow to belittle and humiliate your husband every chance you got? If you are that unhappy, why not let him go and be with a woman who truly appreciates him?
love you Marisa! So glad you're on the show - you've got a personality that this group needs. Glad you're open to interpret what you see, not just stand behind your friends and their views. Good girl!
Great blog. I have enjoyed all of them. I feel your pain because I say things off hand that are taken way too seriously. Keep writing!
We all say things off hand its natural and human nature. Unfortunately in this particular group Marisa is vulnerable because she is very open and we know how the group will move in for the kill. She is our little lamb right now and we want her to develop. Question is will she develope to become a mean girl or will she be smart and pick a mentor in the group aka like Brandi did and blossom into becoming a more empowering presence as we further watch her in action. I personally think she should spend time in Malibu with Yolanda. That's just my opinion.
Everyone have a great weekend.
Marissa! You're a great addition to my guilty pleasure :)
I've read a couple of the comments/remarks ... people are giving advice as if you asked. I'm with you, give me sweats, no make up and take out after a long week, and that is the best relaxation for our family too! I also have a tendency to stay off the poles, or at least on tv. Keep doing what you're doing, you're obviously doing something right. In hollywood, 16 years of marriage is almost unheard of!
You are in a strange position. We don't know you very well. Not well enough to know when you are joking or not. You shouldn't feel the need to explain yourself or apologize but, having said that, you have to allow some room for shock and awe at some of the things you say. In this crowd, viewers included, only Kyle knows you well enough to get you and your sense of humor. I might joke about my husband with a good girlfriend who gets me and knows I love my husband but probably not with a handful of women (or thousands, actually) who don't.
njmom02 Do you know any of these women? I mean come on....you are watching a TV show.
I would never say hurtful things about my husband that might damage his ego. I love him and want him to feel he is the best and that I would never want to be with anyone else. I really feel that way. Men are more fragile than you think. It just serves no purpose to say those things in public. I think you have a good heart, but you might want to rethink this. No criticism intended, just a thought........
Please write something of substance, not just a recap of the episode we all saw. Get into it more on the show as well, liked to see you replace at least two of these haggered housewives...Adrienne and Kim
@greenbean @luvinit46 , Hardly fair, there is a story line that has been going on FOREVER, and no one is making it STOP. I think Marisa is trying to fit in where she can, I find her interesting, she just needs to be given a chance.
I'm curious... If your husband was on a reality tv show and said all the things about YOU that you are saying about him... would you find it so funny? I think you and your family would be insulted. What's worse is you do it on every episode. Some of the other women have been married young and in fact longer than you and they never talk bad about their husbands on tv (kidding or not). So disrepectful!
