Ep 9: Bravotv.com's Editor wonders why belly dancing couldn't solve Brandi and Adrienne's legal troubles.

on Jan 14, 20130

Hello my Moroccan friends. Are you ready to belly dance your legal troubles away? Well, sadly you can't. But perhaps you can call someone and talk it out. Until then let's recap shall we.

Don’t Cry for Me Argen-Scheana
We open with the end of Brandi's meeting with the young Scheana. After that surely enjoyable conversation Brandi needed a drank. . .and luckily the 'Pump was there to provide. She poured Ms. Glanville one of her signature over-large glasses of rose and the girls gabbed it out.

It broke my heart to hear Brandi say that Eddie was the love of her life and to try her damnedest to be strong. Thankfully Lisa plied her with promises that Brandi was indeed her favorite and that she can always retire an old maid to her guest house. Uh, Lisa, I also need a place to retire as an old spinster. Do you have room for two?

Also can you blame Brandi for forcing Lisa to say that she was her favorite aloud? If I was in the company of Lisa and had the opportunity to for her to say nice things about me, I'd make her do it constantly. Like, every five minutes. "Lisa am I still your favorite?" "Yes, Kimberly please stop asking. It's not attractive to beg."

What is very odd is that this whole thing that came out of Brandi's mouth has been exploited and rehashed so much by Kyle's minions that it is she who has caused the most damage to Adrienne, not Brandi. Apparently the Aloofs are too dumb to figure that out. And I really really hope that this ugly behavior by Mauricio and Kyle hits them in their pocket book. Unfortunately, people with money seem to get their way...right or wrong. I hope the Vanderpumps boycot him as it appears he really screwed them over after getting his commission. He is despicable.

Me thinks this season would be awfully boring without the Brandi vs. Maloof controversy. Brandi certainly spices things up...even if she has no internal censor. It's not enough to wonder which personality Kyle will use each week, or which shade of pink lovely Lisa will wear...we need drama! One thing is for sure...these ladies sure know how to "beat a dead horse!" XO...love your posts!

Should B call AM? let's remember how viciously AM and PN attacked her. So, no. Another thing: it might make it worse. She was also advised by legal not to call AM. Mo can "deal with it directly" because he has the money to if things go south. BG does not. Mo is dealing in real estate - business. BG and AM's issues are different.

Bottom line is that what Brandi said was TRUTH and what Adrienne said about Brandi was slander and vile accusations. Same way she slandered Lisa. If theres anybody with no right to complain about damaging accusations its definitely the Maloofs! Lisa couldve easily sued her and WON. But she has too much class and better things to do.

It is so funny how we women want an equal voice, equal pay, equality sista....cuz we are woman, hear me roar....but let two sides of women start dueling, and you get one side playing dirtier, forgetting conveniently, in order to win the battle, that no woman should really need a man or a woman for that matter to come to their aid in an argument with a man....aren't we the gender that can have 12 hrs of labor, have a baby and if necessary, be back at work within a few days to a week?? Don't laugh, i know women that did this...But here on this last episode, we see that many viewers believed that Mauricio was wrong for calling Brandi out on her "big" mistake...many are calling Ken a hero for arguing with Mauricio on Brandis behalf...BUTTTTT...I wonder....did Brandi start the argument in the first place because she would not be able to finish it on her own, because she does not have a male escort these days?? The day she argued with Adrienne and Paul at Mauricios event she HAD a male escort, who said "nothing" in her defense...did NUTHINNNN...so now there is a big to do that Mauricio spoke mean to Brandi, and that poor girl has no husband to defend her....maybe men don't want to escort a woman that will require them to fight when they go out...I am shocked that Brandi fans are using the helpless woman excuse....Brandi hasn't been helpless since she got out of diapers most likely...She is the only woman I have ever heard turn the one syllable F word into a two syllable word....she delights in the use of the word so much, she stretches it out...for the listeners advantage...No...this woman was more upset that her looks did not charm Mauricio...he has a stunning wife...he doesn't care about her good looks...right is right...he was simply giving his opinion..something Brandi prides herself in doing whenever she gets airtime...am i a fan of Brandi?? No...but I do hope she finds a man who she can trust and will give her the life she obviously craves....

Kyle is in the instigator of every argument. I can't stand her or her rude friend Faye. Also, she acts like she is such a victim of Kim's alcoholism. She's mean to Kim about her issues. I assure you that Kim didn't intend to become an alcoholic and Kyle needs to be more supportive.

Why is everyone attacking Taylor. I was never a big Taylor fan but wow she has been through the wringer and everyone is saying get over it behind her back in the interviews. Like just because it happened last year doesn't mean she isn't still suffering. Grow up and support your friends.

Can you move on from the Brandi storyline already? Every week she's getting dumped on and it's getting really stale and boring.

At this point who can remember who owes who an apology. Maybe everyone should apologize to everyone. OR they could all just sue each other.

Are there any episodes coming up where they are doing something other than sitting around and trashing Brandi, because it is getting old. Adrienne has gotten everyone, including her chef, to slander and attack Brandi.

WTF. Why is Moron Moransky going after Brandy?  Kyle must have told him some lies about what Brandy said.

Also after Mauricio made 100% commission (over a million dollars) for selling Lisa's house and then made 50% commission for selling her the house she now lives in he has the nerve to disrespect her and Ken. The commission he made allowed him to purchase the new car for his wife and daughter as well as put enough money away for them to go to college.

 

I WOULD NOT call Mauricio a friend!

First off since none of us are privy to what was actually said, it is hard to take sides.  I think apologies are pretty cheap anyway, and since Adrienne couldn't be bothered to hurry up and apologize to Lisa, I feel what goes around comes around, and Karma is a bitch sometimes.  Adrienne is a hypocrite and I am really tired of her on the show.  I guess that makes me team Lisa/team Brandi.

Mauricio was incredibly rude to both Lisa and Ken and his behavior to Brandi just vile, like his wife.

 

Funny blog!

So, is Kyle going to write an indefensible blog this week about Mauricio attacking Brandi? She skipped the one defending that gross friend of her's last week.

From what Brandi said last night, she claims she has tried to call Adrienne.

So, how can she apologize when Adrienne won't take her calls??

Adrienne was the immature child in this issue....she called her lawyers first.  

 

I'm becoming rather bored with the Richards sisters and their dysfunctional relationship.  Every season it's the same.....argue, cry, make up....and talk about each other on their one on one interviews.  So sick of it.

 

Mauricio is a pig.  Ken-a true gentleman.

I think Adrienne needs to apologize to everyone. She's caused drama from Taylor to Lisa and to Brandi. Everyone had been listening to Adrienne only to find out she's crazy as a loon. Even Paul had to get away from her... Kyle ALWAYS backs the wrong horse. You'd think into the 3rd season she would start to have a clue. NOT!!!! Kyle and Mauricio only care about how much money that their friend's have. If you can't buy from Mauricio, you are a non-factor to the Richards and Umansky duo. But if you believe Mauricio, he and Kyle are very classy people. LOL!!!!!! Keep telling yourselves that, but it doesn't make it true.

Rather than Brandi initiating a call to Adrienne, the appropriate call should have been by Kyle.  Kyle is responsible for all the caos and should be held accountable.   Brandi has taken ownership for actions and has been punished and bullied over and over again.  Enough!

 

Quite frankly, Honey Boo Boo conducts herself with more class and sophistication.

Why does Bravo allow Brandi to be bullied so horribly every week?! Maurcio has turned into a cocky, arrogant ,wussy. He lacks the integrity he once tried to portray the first 2 seasons.

In this episode, I was very proud of Camille. She has come such a long way since the first episode that the Bravo community met her. She stated to Brandi and Taylor that they have to stay strong for themselves and stand up for themself. Camille is truly a great model for those women that have gone through divorce and show that it is possible to be happy after love doesn't work out...the first time.

Kim you are right on about the fights and the husbands and the ladies - Was I the only one worried that Kern would dislocate his new hip bu bending over and planting those sweet flowers for his Lisa Love?? Brandi does need to call and calm down A and P - they are just too together to really be a couple - I have often thought she did not give a darn about him - she seems to just tolerate his company - just barely..

Any desire I had to apologize would be null and void after I had to drop 2k on an bloody lawyer! Once legal papers start flying I'd fell 100% less remorseful and a more resentful. It was clear that the only person shocked by what Brandi said was Kim, everyone else clearly knew what she was talking about- no one said a damn thing at the table. No, I'm true BH style they waited until the person wasn't in front of them to attack. And the other girls wonder why people like Brandi's honesty? Cause most of them have no clue what honesty is after years of manipulating and scheming to be queen of the Hills

I think to call someone that someone has to be willing to talk it out and I think Adrienne made her stance clear when she originally attacked Brandi.....an apology takes two, one to give and one to at least be willing to listen.   I think this is going exactly the way Adrienne wants it to go and I feel sorry for Brandi.  I also think Adrienne should be apologyzing.

 @FlutterBy Why do you keep going over this male vs female stuff? If this is your only argument in Mo's defense then you missed the whole conversation. Mo was louder than anyone and when Ken finally jumped in, Mo said "who cares" Mo himself made a fool out of himself because he just overruled everybody who tried to talk until she at last (thank god) started screaming over Mo and told him to STFU!! Bravo to her for this, since Mo was too stupid to STFU, which BTW, was completely appropriate given Mo's condescending, overbearing, unwanted advice. And all women who get married actually want the life they crave. What planet are you from?

 @FlutterBy No matter how "equal" you want to make it, it is an abuse of power for a man to ever assault a woman, either physically or verbally-EVER. Yes, when a man attacks a woman, it DOES behoove another man to step in. That Brandi's date did not at Mauricio's event speaks volumes about his manhood. He should have stepped in immediately. Let Brandi and Adrienne go at it. The moment Paul got in her face, HE crossed the line no man should cross. Mauricio's behavior at the dinner was not the same as Paul's, but it was still VERY unbecoming. Lisa hit it on the head that no one stood up for her when Adrienne lied with accusations yet they back up Adrienne when Brandi calls out the lie and BS Adrienne has been living, but in a private setting. It need not have gone further than that. Kyle and Kim are the one's who took it out of that room. Period.

Brandi is supposedly known to lie a lot, so I wouldn't believe one word out of her mouth,  this show is suppose to be about the BH housewives, not the LA hosewives.  Brandi is a trouble maker and a whinner and will never stop, she lives on the attention as does the Queen bee Lisa who thinks the sun rises and sets in her,.

 @whatever1

 Adrienne should have a lawyer shut the dirty mouth up of Brandi,   Brandi is sooo jealous of the others, because she just literally doesn't fit in with those folks at all. She goes from one house to the other and tattles on everyone and puts everyone against everyone else.   She is sly,  I am sooooo surprised at Lisa choosing her for a best friend, but then again Lisa likes to control and so she can control the poor little single mom, that way she feels important.   Pleeeeeeeease  !!

 @6alady

 Whe3nb the whinner Brandi and bad mouth Brandi stops all the talk behind everyones back, maybe she will acquire some class, but she is clinging to Lisa who use to have class until she came down a few pegs, but Lisa likes to be the grand damm and be in control, so the only one she can control is Brandi, the nobody, how did she ever get on this show.

Really.
Really.

@6alady Hahaha!! That's true! Cheeky comparison, but it works. :)

 thumbs up! key phrase here.....the integrity he once "TRIED" to portray.

the camera doesn't lie, and now we see him as the snide character is truly is.

 @mastieber She just repeated what Taylor had said.  Frankly, I found it disappointing.  Camille still parses her words and is careful with opinions.  I like the kick-ass Camille.  She showed she still had it in Season 2 when she confronted Taylor.

 @mastieber Love? not convinced she had that with Kelsey. Think she wanted the lifestyle more than him tbh :/  but she came out of it well off so yeah I guess that makes her a great role model...if money is what youre chasing.

 @ariagain What? Not one time has Brandi been accused of lying. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. It is truth, despite what you think of the delivery. You obviously are not watching the same show or live in a house of cards based on lies and also don't like being called on your BS.

 @ariagain

 there you go again Bernie...or at least someone with the same mentality as Bernie.

Brandi hasn't lied...it's Adrienne, and Taylor who tell porkies. Kyle has a selective memory and lies by omission.

 @ariagain I think the problem they have with Brandy is that she tells the truth. Clearly the comment causing all the fuss was the truth, unlike the things Adrienne said about Brandi and Lisa which were lies.

 @AudreyEH  @TheRealPalisadesHousewife How else would he be "a top agent"? I hope there are still some intelligent people with money in Beverly Hills.I hope they do business with other agents who do have real integrity and values.What Mauricio the Moron showed should wake up some people.Maybe that's the real reason he started "the agency".Who would like to be associated with a person who doesn't respect a single mother and says "she deserves it". There are certain conduct rules in business as well.A man with NO INTEGRITY cannot be trusted,period.

 @AudreyEH  @TheRealPalisadesHousewife I re-watched the episode...with FF, of course.  Kyle nitpicks Kim about everything.  WHY didn't you go on the Master Cleanse?  WHY isn't it recommended?  WHY are you saying NO?  WHY?  This is how she got Brandi to spill the "secret" about Adrienne and gets others to react.  She needles, over and over until the victim gets sick of it and either walks away or tells her what she wants to know.  Too bad more people don't tell her to F off, at least on camera.  That would be entertaining if it was someone other than Brandi.
