Some brief highlights before what I hope is the last round of the "Beat A Dead Horse Into The Ground" main event include: Paul taking a lustful (last?) glance at Adrienne's knockers in the limo ride over, Ken not quite knowing where to stand when Kyle and Lisa discuss shoes, Mauricio telling Kim "you look great" on a loop, and Byron Allen ladies and gentlemen!
Finally, the face-off we have all been waiting for arrives as Adrienne, Paul, and Brandi convene inside while the others show off their questionable moves on the dance floor. It's not long before the usually merry-go-round of "he said she said" kicks off, and I'm left scratching my head wondering what actually went down until we get a tacit acknowledgment from Paul that Brandi "was warned" which confirms for me what I thought all along. . .go Brandi!
We're not done yet as the rest of the gang as well as the ubiquitous, Dwight, enter the fray. Are there hypocrites in this room? Is there of double-standard taking place? Does Ken land another great line when he responds to Paul "That made your shoe"? Has Dwight opened his mouth for the last time? he answers are all a resounding YES!
Signing off until next week. . .
PS: Didn't my baby sister Jordana and baby brother Paul look so cute in white?!?
Just continue to be you and don't change. I, like everyone else, loved you in the beginning but when you did that little Brandi thing, well that was not very becoming of you. Please don't get caught up with the Kyle, Kim and Faye deal. They will steer you wrong.
Marisa I really liked you at the beginning of the season, you saw both sides of the story, didn't pick sides... Carried your self every well, but going to Adrianne's party knowing the drama between the girls and showing the text message was a mean girl act... You know those girls have nothing nice to say about Brandi.. You put Yolanda in a bad situation. :(
I have thoroughly enjoyed you up until tonight and you really showed your colors at Adrienne's party when you jumped on the band wagon and decided to trash Brandy. You are no longer the voice of reason and were obviously faking it. You are just another "mean girl." The way you speak about your husband is horrible. You shouldn't even joke about wanting to be with another man. It is so hypocritical of you to want to know what Brandy is doing and to talk about her when you joke about wanting to screw a dark handsome stranger. That is disrespectful to Dean and makes you look like trash. You really are disappointing. And to buddy up with Faye when Brandy wasn't around? That is just backstabbing. I'm glad Yolanda was strong enough to tell all of you that you were wrong.
Itsmeab38 I'm 100% agree with you. I adored Marissa until last night. She just went into the Faye category. As far as I'm concerned, I won't be watching RHOBH anymore. Kyle and her minions have ruined the show and show anything but class.
Marissa, Not quite sure what to make of you yet. I think you can be funny but at the expense of your husband's feelings! I also do not like that you seem to state quite a bit that you "speak your mind","that's just what I do"! Enough, we get it, you like to speak your mind. That being said I am sorry about the loss of your Father-in-law. Try to stay away from Faye, I don't even get why she is on the show. Oh well Good Luck surviving in this group.
Get this girl off the show! She is not a keeper! Use the air time to show the real housewives not her or Faye. Get them out of here.
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 gone and is going through/dealing with 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 is it with you ladies that derive pleasure at maliciously gossiping at another's expense?
You said "I know I'll sound horrible for saying this but I will because that's how I am.." You didn't even have to introduce the lies you said about Taylor with saying you're a horrible person. It was clear you are when you said what you did. And to continue with that opinion on your blog despite her clear explanation? wow just wow Marissa. I can see now why you're friends with Kyle when we were all wondering because we thought your personality and character was so much better. I guess the old adage "Birds of a feather...." is true.
Misunderstanding and miscommunication does happen to the best of us. But I'm sure you're the perfect parent who has everything under control at all times.
You seem fun and witty in your BLOG but on SCREEN you leave much to be desired.
DutchGirl69 W/E. Faye is just saying what a LOT of viewers are thinking! She confronts Brandi and forces her to take responsibility for what comes out of her dastardly mouth.
I really liked you at first but I don't like the way you treat your husband I think you are rude and inconsiderate I don't know why he puts up with you
Is your connection to Kyle is that you worked with her husband in real estate before he formed his own company? How close of a friend are you if you'd not met her "good" friends Lisa and Adrienne, let alone her sister Kim? I recently saw you on an episode of Selling LA and noted you're in the same business as Mauricio. Funny how that connection wasn't revealed.
LOVE that you are on this show!! Always look forward to your take on things and your response to the other girls! Thanks for being REAL!!
i want to see more behind-the-scenes stuff in marisa's life. her hoolywood pedigree is so interesting! i want to see what it's like to be hollywood royalty!
Who are you to judge Taylor??? Maybe you should take learn how to stop talking about your husband as if he is nothing before you judge somebody else!
Marissa you are a beautiful lady, I like to see you on the show, and hope you do not align yourself with a losing horse or you will end up with a lot of angry fans.
Marissa, there is a lot to be said for sound judgment. Taking Kyle's rendition of anything, is not sound judgment. Kyle's MO is to bring someone or something controversial up, back away as the vultures go after the victims, then say, "what was I thinking to mention so and so...?"....I'm so innocent. If you play into that, you're just as guilty as Kyle.
greenbean Greenbean; haven't really figured out the real Marisa (saw that I misspelled her name earlier), but once I do,, I'll start working on it! You, my dear, are hilarious!!!
I did not like your comments at the nose party. Thought I was starting to like you, now not so much. It is clear you have Kyle in your ear. Do not become one of the mean girls, the viewers will turn on you. You should apologize to Taylor she did not deserve your comments.
CheekyGirl Unfortunately, I think Marissa actually just trusted what Kyle was saying to be accurate and not Cliff noted, leaving out crucial details. That in itself is why certain people can be toxic to the beings of other people. Ultimately, I think Kyle has realized her failed attempt at having Brandi driven from the show, she's going to go after what she considers to be the next weak link to bring in Faye.
Careful Kyle, Taylor might bring out some "Oklahoma". lol
Taylor knew exactly where her daughter should have been because prior arrangements had been made for Kennedy to be with her grandmother! Those plans were changed without her knowledge. Please slow your roll down some because you are coming off a bit snooty.
Motorcitywife... I love that you always try to see the other side of every situation even when it involves your favorites. I have often thought that these comments and conversations would be a lot more interesting if they were more nuanced and not so black and white. I hate making absolute villains out of people... I like to understand people even if, ultimately, I completely disagree with their words and actions.
I think Marisa has potential. Her honesty can be quite fresh, but the last two episodes haven't been especially flattering for her. I feel that she is using cheap shots to garner attention for herself, and she is using her blogs to say what she really should have had the gumption to say on the show. I really don't respect that.
Motorcitywife greenbean I disagree. The topic had been broached and was open for discussion. Faye was WELL within her rights to voice her opinion about her friend of 25years, as I would expect anyone whom is a friend over such a extended time would endeavor.
Kyle suckered you in to trashing Taylor now you look the fool-hopefully lesson learned
Someone told me a long time ago- if you didn't hear it first hand than don't react
timbun smg6611 Cerebral resuscitation seems to be the order of the day for Kyle haters like yourselves. Manipulation of her friends to the tune of negative commentary does indeed NOT seem to be Kyle's m.o. at all. They were discussing the situation and uninvolved entrants such as Malissa toss their impressions into the ring. Simple as that. To allude this unrequited notion of salaciousness on her part beacons to have the analyzation skills of people like yourselves under intense scrutiny, imho.
greenbean When Yolanda is on the episode, it really makes a difference...Lisa must be overjoyed when YoYo does show, because she's got some backup. Otherwise, it's a room of nut-berries, all looking to rise, like cream, to the top. I'm not kidding, if one of my friends started acting up at a dinner as we've seen these ladies do all season long, we'd get them help or show them the door. There is an extremely high level of arrogance and entitlement attached to most of these women.
I don't think she's actual friends with Kyle, more like be on tv friends which is fine. I think she has the potential to be the Bethanny Frankel of the group, always telling it like it is. Go for it! :)
greenbean LizzieMac79 I have a different takeon Marisa after this blog! She's not mousy or fearful! Very funny and doesn't care what anyone thinks about what she says! I, too, will be delighted to see her shine!
greenbean shysharon LizzieMac79 Me too, greenbean. I'm hoping more than two of these ladies got past 6th grade on the emotional Richter scale.
Kyle has been friends with Bethenny Frankel for 20 years, I don't see a resemblance to Marisa. Marisa said at the nose party table, "I probably shouldn't say anything, but you know that's what I do." All that came to mind was: GOSSIP is apparently what you do. There's no frankness or saying what she thinks unless it's behind the back of the person she wants to criticize...with zero first hand knowledge, I would add.
BlingDong LizzieMac79 When you qualify what you are about to do as "that's what I do" then it probably isn't really what you do.
I agree with you. They supposedly "hung out" 10 years ago when she was working with Maury, but then Marisa married Dean, had 2 children and it seems didn't really see much of Kyle until Kyle wanted a new sidekick on the show. She had never met Kim, remember, so I doubt it was a continuous 10 year friendship.
@BlingDong @LizzieMac79 I though that was strange too when she said she never met Kim before but yet she was invited to the nose party
I actually like you on the show and other than not being smart when it comes to picking friends like Kyle you could be fine. Your husband is handsome and you are lucky to have him from what I've been shown so don't keep on humiliating him or he will find a lady who appreciates him.
I hope you have learned by now about how Kyle truly is......a serpent. She slithers in and causes havoc and then slithers out and watches as everyone freaks out. She says "I just want to stay out of the drama" but yet is always wrapped up in it and the cause of it.
Let me remind you that she was the one who asked Brandi about Adrienne in the beginning which caused all of these problems....
Learn fast or you will be next...
While it's great to be frank and call it like it is as they say, but doing so within hearing distance of a child is damaging, uncalled for and make you look desperate for attention and camera time. It shouldn't be your business as to how much time Kennedy spends at Kyle's house, and if it's a problem for you, perhaps you should spend your time elsewhere. Just as I don't think you see how your snarky comments on camera can have a detrimental effect on your husband, i think you believed yourself to be insightful when you talked about a child you do not now. Truly bad form, and I'm hoping you are not elevated to full housewife status next season.
