Carlton Gebbia

Carlton explains what she looks for in a pole dancer and thinks Joyce should stick to baseball bats.

on Jan 200

I had my girlfriends Ancorneil, Tara, and Elizy audition dancers with me for our upcoming Americana pool party -- which we usually do every other year along with our Halloween party. When David and I have parties, it's something that we refuse to do half-arsed, otherwise we don't see the point. Our friends always leave having had a great time, there's nothing worse than a dull party, and god knows I've experienced those. Why inflict that kind of boring pain?

The girls were great, but I really needed a wow factor. My gorgeous friend Lanny made a recommendation -- and in walked Diana Diaz! I swear I heard the angels sing! Could not believe how beautiful and talented she was -- and her insane core strength. When I think of pole dancing, I don't think of sashaying around the pole. If it's done right it's a true art form that is inspiring. Anyone can spin around a pole, even me, but Diana is the real deal. She's a trained dancer and was a pole aerialist with Cirque du Soleil in Vegas and that's the kind of quality I wanted for our party. David and I were in Vegas this weekend at a club called Surrender in the Wynn Hotel and saw the same type of pole dancers literally holding themselves up with one bloody hand with their bodies extended horizontally. It was truly amazing!!!

As far as the gun scene: Waiving your personally loaded gun around like a hairbrush speaks volumes. Oh Tom, the pistol range manager, did not look happy with you as you repeatedly pointed it at him. You should honestly stick to baseball bats. There is such a thing about having respect for a gun and not thinking that you're in your own bad action movie. Guns are not a joke.

@Charnorm   My point was to "nicely" say to Carlton to stop being so defensive , angry and hostile. She choses to be open about her beliefs then she should Explain what Wickins is rather then get angry,  and defensive. She should also Expect that some people  will still think its odd and if she had Confidence in who she is and what she believes then she shouldn't get all worked up and angry.  "To each is own" works two ways.    Note that some people will ask the question with a tone of sarcasm then perhaps she should be selective about who shares her spiritual views with.

enough said!

You are not even worthy of anything more than pointing out how you are a nasty and rude hypocrite.  Can't even believe Bravo casted you on this show.  Stop messing with the dark light, it's coming back to you by aging the look of you and your husbands faces. Don't forget bad wishes (spells) come back at you two fold.

You profess to be non-judgmental and non-violent. But all you do is pass judgment on the women you don't like and your passive agressive comments are anything but non violent. I've gotten to the point where I fast forward through all your segments. I find you to be full of hate no matter how much you profess otherwise. Plus you talk out of both sides of your mouth...enough of you.

Hi Carlton, I  admire people who are not afraid to be open and be honest about their beliefs with out worrying about acceptance from others. I do not like people passing judgment and making  passive aggressive comments with the intent to make fun or belittle a person. I did not particularly like some of the subtle comments Kyle made in the first few episodes However I would expect that someone with unique spiritual beliefs and the pride to be open and unpretentious would have the CONFIDENCE to stand your firm  ground with Dignity, Peace and an Understanding that  others ( obnoxious or otherwise) would not be able to understand your beliefs and life style. That's just  life some people are limited in their ideas!  Frustration and anger brings out the ugly side to all of us. Peacefully accept other peoples short comings or ignorance and be strong in your self in the most peaceful of ways. Threats are never trul satisfying even we feel  provoked. Its just exchanging our good energy for bad energy within your self. Wishing you well and hoping to see a more peaceful and confident side to you.

I believe Carlton's dislike of Kyle & Joyce was influenced by others on the show & I think we all know who they are... 'The Dream Team'!!  I'd rather have nightmares...

Carlton's religion is ANGER and JEALOUSY. Nuff said.

Hello Carlton! I have to say you are very closed minded for someone who says they are not.  I do not see Kyle being mean or judgemental at all.  You say you are not chatty but you have been one of the worst so far.  You talk behind people's back which you said is scrappy to do.  Come on lady figure it out you are far from perfect so stop judging others for not being perfect!

Carlton, I'm Catholic.  Catholics believe that the bread and wine are literally turned into the body and blood of Jesus Christ.  Not just figuratively, not just symbolically - Literally!!  You think non-Catholics don't think THAT'S weird?  Who cares!  Every religion has something in it that other people think is weird.  There's just no need for you to be so defensive about Wicca.


P.S. - I think you should return the necklace Kyle gave you, if you're going to talk behind her back like that.

GIVE KYLE BACK HER BRACELET!  And don't blame your nastiness on ur religion, because you are a A TRUE WITCH in every sense of the word!  Someone takes off their necklace and hand it to you as a peace offering, you accept it, then turn around and trash them behind their back?  But in your delusional mind, the person was trashing you in your DREAM?  HOW HYPOCRITICAL!  What a lame excuse!  Bottom line is, no matter what Kyle does, you will forever dislike her, only to be accepted by the"Dream Team," when they seemed annoyed with you as well!  So sad..

Just watched the clip of Joyce with the gun and it never shows her pointing the gun directly at the trainer!! She dropped it to the side, watch it again! you are delusional and the fact that you would blog about her learning "HOW" to handle and respect a gun only shows how pathetic you are and how mean spirited you are!  GET A LIFE!  you don't like Joyce that is fine, so then stop talking about her!  You are a very negative person,  if Bravo doesn't drop you I'm not watching this show!

Wait one second you say your religion is "witchcraft", then you say "Wicca is misunderstood. It's not witchcraft."

Which is it crazy lady? The bible condemns all forms of mysticism, and is quite clear that sorcery of any kind is devil's play. You are on definitely NOT a good person. You are evil and dark and SUPER CREEPY. Get off the show!

As a fellow Wiccan, I would like to say I really think you need to consider that you may be a bit hypersensitive about our religion. If you have the attitude that everyone is against you, you will indeed find opposition where ever you look. Wicca isn't mainstream, so it follows that there is ignorance concerning it. Ignorance doesn't mean opposition, and asking questions about it is NOT obnoxious.  Kyle and Kim had the initial reaction (which btw was only for 2 seconds!) that so many do have, but you immediately put up a wall, and didn't seem to notice that right after that, they were genuinely interested and polite about it, and wanted to know more. That would have been the perfect opportunity on your part to explain it, and not make a giant deal about it. You could have been matter-of-fact and confident, explained it, and been on to something else. Instead, and I really don't want to be insulting here, you're reminding me of the kids on the internet back when Wicca was experiencing such huge growth, who acted superior and sneered at anyone who didn't understand. It was very off-putting and had absolutely no place in the basic tenets of Wicca. When Kyle asked if your tattoo was a Jewish star, again, you could have used that for another teaching opportunity. Just say, "no, it's a pentagram, it means...etc etc" without the huffiness. You have had so many chances to explain it without being defensive that perhaps a bit of introspection is in order. 

Blessed Be

It seems you may have a chip on your shoulder.....  What I have seen - you are always on the defense/attack mode.  This would have been a great chance for you to educate people about your beliefs.  Instead you choose to make an negative issue out of any questions the show has thrown your way.  yawn......

Carlton I think you go to the extreme. You are either too nice or too hateful. There is no middle line for you and I don't think that just cause you don't like someone you should start hating them with so much hatred. I have never seen anyone that is so hateful like you are. My advice to you, we ALL pay every little bad thing we do in this world and I hope you can change and find true happiness and peace in your life.

When you truly don't care about what someone thinks about you, you don't have to have 10 discussions about it. You would come across better if you just didn't say anything.

Carlton, you're not a bad person but you are most certainly believing your delusional thoughts! Who wakes up from a dream and uses "events" from a dream as proof that someone is talking crap about you? It's okay if you don't like Kyle and Joyce. We've all been around people we just don't mesh with but making up stuff in your head about what they've apparently done to you makes you look crazy and delusional. If you're as rational as you think you are, you should really watch the episodes back and do some self-reflection. Its definitely understandable why people are turned off by your behavior and want you off the show.

Carlton you make me smile. I totally get you! I have been tweeting you tonite in the hopes you read your comments. (Mika)

I appreciate your true instinct about Kyle. I have seen it since day one. Yolanda seems a bit flimsy - she flip flops. That is why I adore you and Lisa. You ladies are strong and cool. You are so much more interesting than the rest. Glad to see you not jump on the Lisa bullying bandwagon.  I don't think Joyce is the worst though.  I think has her annoying traits, but overall is not manipulative as Kyle & even Yolanda - who called you all clowns. Yolanda has her agenda and is a hypocrite. Kim gets off scott free for missing the painting party but Lisa once again gets chastised. If I was Lisa I too would have bailed.  They are rotten to her and she senses it and is hurt. But back to you, your interesting, fun, smart and gorgeous.   Your children are so sweet and well mannered.  That says a lot about you. Best!

Carlton is just mean spirited. Wicca and S&M are diversions, or rather cloaks, to dress her malice up and make it more intriguing and exciting. But, really, in the end, she is just a mean spirited girl.

Naturally Kyle converting to Jewish for her husband is understandable thinking its the Star of David.  Anyone in her position would say the same.  Why are u so offensive all the time.

@Marijo57 I do the same thing. I never watch her sections anymore. She is boring...you are so correct. Plus she talks out of both sides of her mouth. She's so self righteous and self contradictory. Enough of her...get rid of her.

@peacesister  If Carlton was open and honest, she would not have a problem answering questions people might have about her religion. If she were secure with her beliefs, she would welcome the opportunity to enlighten people. But no, she is defensive. She should be glad that someone is interested enough to ask about it.. Period.

@TeeS  Her style of Wiccan is evil. Wishing someone ill will with a spell? That is definitely the dark side, not true Wiccan. She professes against negative energy and then uses it to hurt someone. Everyone should stay away from her.

Heidi_Ylenni

@TeeS I think the problem is that it isn't about her religion at all, she clearly wants to have a problem with Kyle and is using her religion or whatever she can find to justify it. I would hate it if I were Wiccan and she was the spokes person, she is a terrible representative.

@TeeS Thank you for your ensightful comment, I hope Carlton reads it and takes it to heart.

Funny about the pentagram, at Christmas I bought what I thought was a star decoration, it was beautiful, and when I got it home my kids said that's a pentagram. I said what's that? And they explained it and I said well, it's still beautiful.

@TeeS Thank you for telling this to Carleton...I just don't understand why she has been so defensive about her religion....I was raised a Christian Scientist, not that I practice the religion today, but I enjoy explaining the religion and relieving people's thoughts by letting them know I was born in a hospital and have had all my shots.  There is nothing wrong with sharing!

I truly believe with ALL of my heart that ANY ONE who has to talk about having sex as much as she does is not actually having sex. I think her husband is messing around on her with scads of women, and she is obviously jealous. This is her way of dealing with it!

True. It is funny how she keeps telling the viewers how much she doesn't care! For someone who doesn't care she sure spends a lot of air time on something she doesn't care about. Plus her crabby looking ole face...says it all!

@misi.richards Honest???  You have got to be kidding.  The woman is certifiably insane.  She takes herself more seriously than any person I have ever seen in my life.  And, have you ever seen someone with more double standards.  One one hand, she's saying that she wants people to say what they have to say to her face and not behind her back.  Then, she spends the entire afternoon talking about Kyle.  Dark, ugly, evil; that's Carlton.

@charnorm You missed my point. If Carlton chooses to be open then she should have the confidence to explain what wickins is  with out all the defensive anger and hostility and if she finds that some people ask with a sarcastic tone then perhaps she should be selective about who share her spirituals views with. With confidence she could make better choices and keep her sense of peace. Enough said
