Carlton Gebbia

Carlton reflects on Kyle's argument, Nipple-Gate and if she thinks Mrs. Mauricio-Umanksy is a good person.

on Feb 50

No matter what my feelings were towards Joyce, upon her request which I respect, we had a lunch to sort out misconceptions and anything else. I was honest with her at lunch, I told her what I had said and felt about her and her husband's comments the first time we met -- plus some other truths. So there were no surprises or hypocrisy, she knew but maybe she forgot. I was truly upset at the idea that she thought I would put a spell on her family, especially her children, when what happened at Yolanda's was a tongue-in-cheek reaction to her yet another ridiculous challenge.

Watching Kyle's talking head as she's constantly rude about Lisa (her friend) only compounds and confirms my feelings towards her. Talk about smiling at one's face and then stabbing them in the back. But I guess that's her M.O. I know I'm not wrong about her, and I definitely know I'm not the only one who feels this.

Lisa's dinner. . .Please understand the only reason we went was for Ken and Lisa. David and I have had the pleasure of getting to know Lisa and Ken, he has a wonderful dry sense of humor and we always have a good giggle. I apologized, of course, to Lisa for the next theatrics! Definitely not my intention for this hideous argument to ensue but when goaded consistently, yeah, eventually I am going to bite. . .Reaching this crescendo of digs, insults, innuendos, and challenges -- yep now I'm done!

Carlton makes my skin crawl. She has a contrived accent, she is low class English, unlike Kids. Please take her off the show. Cannot understand what she has against Kyle, maybe cos Kyle has class, beauty and a legitimate claim to Beverley Hills.

Ohhhh Carlton, 

"Two things you never talk about....religion and politics" So, STOP talking about your religion.

And since when does a nipple offend you, yours are out every chance you get.

I am in total agreement with Summertime56. She just does not fit in at all.  Carlton stop being so sensitive about Klye.  No one goes around talking about you.  Your a hot mess.  Your nasty to boot. No one really gives a damn that your a Witch.  Really. If  your so proud of being a Witch, then stop being so sensitive.  You don't like Kyle because she does not like you at all.  But, unlike you, Kyle did give  you a chance.  You did not.  And, frankly. I think Carlton  your jealous of Joyce. So, get over yourself.

I am definitely a "Housewives" watcher.  I can't explain exactly why I watch it and my husband thinks I am nuts for doing so.  I guess it is because in watching these pretentious people, I am quite happy with my boring life. With all of the money that a lot of these "Housewives" have or at least pretend to have, thank you JESUS for being just having  an average, boring life.  I decided that in watching Carlton in these past episodes, I no longer will watch HWBH.  I really tried to like her with her love of animals but then her nastiness with some of the women especially Kyle, started making me feel wrong about watching this show.  I am not going to pretend to know anything about Wicca practice(is that how you would write it?) but I find it insulting to my faith in Jesus that a woman who describes herself as a witch, is into crosses.  Could anyone explain to me how a symbol which represents the death of my Lord, would appeal to a witch? Really, someone who has some knowledge of wiccans(?) explain to me?   That is why today I decided this is so wrong for me to watch this show and  by doing this, I am contributing to the mockery of the cross.  I am not judging you Carlton on your practice or even BRAVO from promoting this but I just this is just going to far.

i totally get why carlton reacts the way she does to Kyle.  She isn't genuine in what she says and makes rude comments while making an innocent face as though NOBODY knows what she truly means by her comments and questions.  I don't care what religion someone is, you don't ask the person questions about it unless they offer to talk about it, it's common sense and simply rude.  Kyle strikes me as someone who would meet someone of another race she isn't familiar with and immediately start asking offensive questions about that person's culture. Or if she was offered food from another culture, she would make a disgusted face and some rude comment about how nasty she thought it would be to eat that.  She's offensive and annoying, it is difficult to find any redeeming quality of hers.


Who goes to someone's home for the first time as a guest and then goes around mocking their doll collection and saying it looks creepy as hell when the person could hear you??  I don't care if you thought inside your head that it was creepy, you don't say it outloud and laugh about it with kim.  i mean there are just soooooo many instances of her being rude and offensive to carlton in the first few episodes but it's been so long since i watched them that i don't remember them all anymore.  so it's no wonder carlton doesn't like her and is now on the attack, whether she is right or wrong to do that.


and i agree w/ what someone else here said, there is NO WAY Kyle could confuse a pentagram for the star of david.  DUDE...c'mon.  I am neither Jewish nor Wiccan and NO WAY i would confuse the two.   i don't know WHY kyle made the comment, whether it was her trying to be funny, relevant, snide, or maybe it's just her feeling like she can always say whatever she wants whenever she wants with no repercussions.  


anyway, carlton is a lover of animals and nature and she doesn't like kyle.  whether or not the rest of her personality is annoying, i find her FAR less annoying than kyle and her cheesy jokes and forced lovey-doveyness with mauricio.  And i fast forward through all of Kim's scenes when she's not with any of the other HW.  zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Okay, wow! I'm just now getting around to watching this episode and I have to say that I like Carlton but damn girl, you serious always have an issue with Kyle if the girl breaths. You look bat-ish crazy and that's not really you. You take issue with everything that Kylie says and does, you are so dramatic for no reason. You're cool and understanding to everyone except Kylie and she makes an effort with you, it's ridiculous!!! You don't know the real relationship between Lisa and Kylie so taking what she said about the whole nipple thing and making it something it wasn't was ridiculous. It's like all of a sudden you became a prude when that's not really you either. I hope that you are looking at the episodes so you can see how you're coming off.

Get over stuff.  You have issues over everything & it's getting old.  Not sure if your overly sensitive or just overly judgemental.  Your dragging show down.

I agree with you.  There is a vast amount of misunderstanding regarding Wicca that I think results with people thinking it is a "fake" religion.  Personally, I am quite shocked by the disrespect of many of the housewives for your religious beliefs.  Even if they don't agree with your beliefs, they should have respected them by not being rude or dismissive.  I also agree that there is no way someone can confuse the star of David with the pentagram.  If Kyle cannot recognize the star of David then she needs to continue her study into Judaism.  I also think that the proper response to viewing one's new tattoo should be a simple, "That's nice."  End of story, no additional comments needed.  Kyle does not know how to diffuse a situation and only knows how to escalate a situation with her rude and immature comments.  Keep fighting, Carlton!  I am continually stumped why people can't respect the beliefs of others.

Dear Carlton,


Kyle has a mouth the size of a  coconut.  She is also fierce and disloyal.  The real problem, though, is that she's dumb as a doorbell.  Really. She has been on your back since the first day you had the luncheon for the HWs.  She makes the most outrageous statements -- genuinely mean ones -- and thinks she's funny.  She laughs that horrible, loud laugh, even when no one else is laughing with her.  Kyle is the epitome of a mean girl.


Kyle's comments should mean nothing to you.  Think about it for me.  It really hurts us when a friend is cruel.  Right?

But if we have no respect for the person, do we really care what they think?  No.  At least, we shouldn't.  I haven't trusted Kyle since Day One.  If she insulted me,  given that she has the mentality of a 2 year old, I'd probably laugh or just ignore it.  She CAN'T hurt your heart if she's a meaningless idiot, which she is.  Her best friend is

Faye Resnick, possibly the vilest woman in town.  What does that tell you?


If you want a friend, be a friend to Yolanda.  She is loyal and takes friendships seriously. She is not a biased person because she has met people from all over the world and even married Mohammed.  I think she tends to see hearts rather than what's on the periphery.  You are an intelligent lady with a good sense of humor, and I just think that the two of you would get along well.


Please follow me on Twitter.  I'll send you a tweet, and I'll mention Alura so you know who I am. I'll follow you as well.

Carlton I do believe you have a good heart but you do come across like someone who is very paranoid and when that paranoid I would suggest you get support. Showing the world your sex room and choice of toys, well some of them anyway, really?. I believe that should be a personal choice for you and your husband and not to share with people that do not know you, and for the sake of your children it may cause some embarrassment later. Honestly, I wouldn't want my kids at your house after seeing all that weird stuff on TV.

I honestly don't recall anybody attacking your religion, really, Carlton, it's all in your head or dreams... whatever!  I think they were all curious and asked questions.  If Kyle is guilty of something is being ignorant of Wicca and that's where her questioning came from, I don't think if someone needs clarification on something, they are insulting you.  My opinion...

Carlton, you are not ever going to let this comment go are you, even with an apology. I found your tears to be crocodile tears. If the insult was so baseless from someone you don't like I don't know why you are so hurt and offended.  You want to play up the victim role.  Kyle shouldn't have said it but she was trying to draw a parallel between the way you act toward her. Anytime she asks you a question about religion you over react and act offended. You love the attention you get for being wiccan but god forbid someone ask you about it.  What is wrong with Kyle assign if you were raised Catholic? You never did explain that.  Most people are not offended when someone asks them about their religious background, especially since your home is full of religious symbols.  WHy do you have a confessional in your home? Are you making a statement about Catholicism?

Thank you Carlton, finally someone who will call out Kyle's rude behavior.   I'm so tired of her derogatory comments and then she laughs.  She obviously could use some therapy.  She is passive-agressive, insensitive, defensive and controlling.  Seems she is insecure.

Carlton, you have Kyle's number. That has been her MO since season one. Every dinner it's Kyle who brings up the topic to start a fight, every one. You are a kind lady. Nice ti talk to you on twitter.

Carlton, if you watch this season's episodes over again, you'll see that you had nothing but snide remarks about everyone from the get-go... snickering how you & Lisa Vanderpump did not have the same accent (clearly looking down on her accent and where she's from), and you clearly have a MASSIVE chip on your shoulder about Kyle Richards. What is YOUR claim to fame? A failed career as a two-bit actress, marrying into money and being into wicca, which you try to glorify, but is in reality, just an obscure "religion" (I use that term loosely, b/c most of the population wouldn't even call it that).


Please do yourself and the viewing public a favor (as well as your husband, who you try to mention, every chance you get... sooo transparent!) and get off the show. Your massive insecurities are painful to watch, and if you hadn't married into money, we wouldn't even be watching you on TV. Your foul mouth and naughty tendencies do nothing to entice us to watch or like you further. At least Kyle Richards had a career before she came on the show. What was yours?

Let see you can't ask Carlton about her decorations, she apparently hates Catholics, Jews.  She thinks because she lived in S Africa that makes her a victim of prejudice?  Money - which she married and did not earn is the end all be all, makes her what?  Carlton is a mean girl without knowledge of Wicca.  What does your husband see in you?  I don't see it.  You are nasty, rude, lacking in a lot of areas, like humanity, humility, knowledge,

I think that you hold Kyle's feet to the fire for things that she has no knowledge of. The anti-Semitic insult, while reckless, was no more ill-intentioned than the names you hurled at her, but because you have deep roots and past hurts steeped in racism and oppression, your reaction to her comments are fueled by those experiences.


I'm not suggesting you be her friend, but at least let the punishment fit the crime.

I cannot stand seeing Carton on this show!  I will not watch her segments going forward.  

Please Producers get her off next season.  She's the most cruel, ridiculous, and troubling person I've ever seen on television.  Her VICTIM mentality is ridiculous.  Her fight with Kyle was absurd and her tragic VICTIM response is a direct result of her own cruelty, prejudice, and misjudgment.  

In addition, I find her overt sexual presentations to be deeply offensive.  

Her language is offensive.

Her attitude towards her riches is offensive.

I realize this negative attention (by posting this response) may make the cynical keep her on the show to keep the negative attention coming.  Please, please, do not let that person stay on the this already questionable show.

@summertime56.  

I agree with most everything you have said,however Andy doesn't choose the cast on his own, he uses a production company to choose the cast. He does have input, but he doesn't choose them himself.

@rebbyreb I think religion is more of a fashion statement than generations of oppressed people surviving persecution kind of deal  .  Wiccans , I guess  , get tattoos of stars to be cool and Jews got tattoos of stars  so Hitler could keep track of them on the way into the concentration camps.

@Fireflyone  

Perfectly said!!!!!

BTW...how many of you are having your comments cut because they don't say "Carlton, you're a good and kind person"

Not one of my comments has a swear word in them or anything like that and I've had at least 90% of them cut recently.

@313Housewife  

She has nothing "steeped in racism"! The fact that she may have spent a few moments in S. Africa as a WHITE woman means NOTTA!!!

Carlton stating she she knows closely what racism is or she experienced it by being a white woman in South Africa is about as relevant as a woman saying she experienced being a man because she has a dildo in her nightstand!

@kelliann1956   She seemed to me to be embarrassed that the tears got the best of her, so I DO think they were genuine.  Everyone has a breaking point, even if we don't personally agree with her on most things.  I am not "TEAM" anyone.  I am for the right thing to do, no matter who it is.  Carlton does have a love for her family and her husband's family.  She said she was an only child growing up (I think her wording was 'a single child'), so she loves the large family from David's side and it's evident she does.  She had that huge smile when she saw them.
