Am I the only one that thought this week's show was...BORING?
Watching Jill and Brad pick out fabric was about as interesting as watching Jeana buy new bedding. But it did plug her business ZARIN FABRICS for those of you that have never heard her talk about it. Brad is entertaining but he can definitely be annoying. He seems to be in just about every episode so far. Is he trying for a spin off?
Simon and Alex are finally remodeling their home. What the he-haw were you waiting for people? I understand living in a house for a while and getting a feel for what you want, BUT 3 YEARS? News flash, granite is way more "In Vogue" than growing mold on your ceiling, which is extremely dangerous for the little ones. Alex is hard to take - she comes off like she is trying so hard to be above everyone. I am starting to think she suffers from the Madonna syndrome. Just because you married a Brit you don't have to act like you have a stick up your bum. WE GET IT. You're better then most people, you put books on your bookcase (so do a lot of people...even ME), St. Barts is so much better than the Hamptons, your kids don't watch TV and you encourage Simon to wear pink jeans and pink loafers (I would be careful of that one). Watching these two play with a beach ball in a kiddie pool was beyond bizarre - it was almost embarrassing.
Tamra, it is going to drive me crazy if I don't say something. The word is "THAN", not then, a mistake that way too many people make. Granite is way more "in vogue' THAN (not then) growing mold on your ceiling. You made the same mistake in your last post several times and I just had to point it out when I saw it again this week.
Tamara, I must say I loved your commentary. This is a switch from your portrayal on HWOC. I wish you would comment than appear on realty. It suits you better.
Hi Tamra, I totally agree with you! Also, I think you got a bad wrap with your reunion show, us 41 year olds need to stick together! Laura, San Jose.
First the comments in the OC finale about Slade looking gay, and now these comments about Simon's wardrobe? Want to tell us again that you aren't homophobic?
this cracked me up. normally I'd be annoyed with someone bashing all these wives, but your commentary actually made me laugh out loud.
TAMRA, I LIKE THAT YOU SAY WHAT IS ON YOUR MIND. WHO DIDN'T THINK THAT LUANN'S HUSBAND LOOKED LIKE HER GRANDPA OR ELDERLY UNCLE FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY? HA.
KEEP BLOGGING GIRL.
You go Tamra...you just said it all! Kelly who & why? Jealous Countess...Bethanny someone to be envied....and Jill a little borting....what is with Ramona, I think your right it is the crazy eyes....the Count is old! and Mario is sexy....how about Jill's husband???? typical NYC rich guy! Keep up the comments!
Tamra-I love you! I love your blog and everything that you commented on from last night's episode...you are dead on. I cannot believe LuAnn and the comments she made to Bethenny last night. Who on earth would come right out and ask "are you retouching...I hope so". For someone who prides themselves on being "classy" and having (so called) manners, she is the rudest and most direspectful person on the show. I could not sit and watch without cringing at how crazy and ignorant/arrogrant she was. Not to mention the whole Ramona incident...don't get me started on that one. Anyway, thanks for your candid, appropriate response...
I have to say I didn't much care for you on your season of the O.C. Housewives...but I agree with everything you said in this blog!
Tamara, I agree with everything you said about Alex and Simon. I agree with what you said about the remodeling of Jill's home. That was totally boring but then so was your moving the gym equipement in your house. Judging by your behavior on the O.C. you would have went from Ramona's throat for saying something like that about your husband infront of your child. Also, I believe you would have made re-touching comments if not worse about one of your cast mates. Im not really sure why Bravo has you commented on the Housewives of New York.
You're fabulous, Tamra! I adore watching you on RHOC and was on Team Tamra during the Reunion. Great blog...although I believe Simon is from Australia. You better correct you before the odd couple comes after you...
You go girl! Ramona has seemed a little wacky this season with odd movements and crazy eyes. Maybe since Luann claims her husband is not "that" much older than her maybe she realized she looks rather old. I am thinking "Class with the Countess" might need to be a joke book or a "what not to do" instead of true Etiquette Book..talking during a presentation at American Cancer Society, food down the front of her dress while she was suppose to be teaching manners, fleeing Bethany's party green with envy, having Bethany pay for her!
Your post this week is spot on! It must be nice to just sit back and enjoy TRHNY after all of the OC drama!
Tamara, you are hilarious! I couldn't agree with you more on most of these things. Let's see . . . Yes, LuAnn totally overreacted to Ramona's comment. Everyone always comments my husband looks way older than I and when I tell them he is only 4 years older I receive compliments about looking so much younger! I think that's how LuAnn should have taken that comment. I wonder if she addresses this in her manners book. "How to comport oneself while being told you are married to a man twice your age . . . 1) stomp off muttering under your breath (but loud enough for everyone within earshot to hear) that you would like your 'friend' to just leave . . . 2) demand an apology . . . 3) sulk . . ."
Hope all is well in the OC!
Tamra! I love your blog! You are so right on about Alex and Simon! She definitely suffers from the Madonna syndrome. Yes, that backyard pool scene was bizarre and I felt embarrassed for them! It was difficult to watch. They seem a bit clueless to how desperate they appear. The Hamptons have been a wonderful place to vacation for decades and they, who cannot afford a home like the other Housewives, put it down while trying to get to every party/social scene they can? The Hamptons are for the rich not the wannabe rich. They should stay in Brooklyn and they don't even live in the best part of Brooklyn! They are a hoot!
Tamra, your blog is hysterical! Please do it weekly. Don't pay attention to what the haters are saying... you are my favorite housewife from all three shows!
exactly how I remember the episode. you just have a much more interesting way of recapping it! love it!
omg tamra WELL SAID! couldnt' have written it better myself! im kinda liking ramona this season and i do agree taht the count alex does look/act rather old... the age doesnt particularly matter its how u act and look. And bethanny is a stunner with an amazing body but hellooo i also was so taken aback to hear her say that she's not suprised that pple are envious of her i mean excuuusee me! Kelly is blah and stupid and looks like a horse...how embarrasing to find herself splashed all over the tabloids like taht today! anways keep writing ur blogs tamra I really enjoyed ur take on this episode!
Ok, your blog on them is more fun than your blogs on your own episode! I agree with you totally on everything, just hilarious the way you say things.
Oh. My. God. Scalping someone would be "American Indian-like"? Girl, between that and the "homo" comment on your own finale you really are showing us your true, hideous colors.
This episode was far from boring. These women are far more classy than the OC women. Please be nicer to Lynn. That would be fantastic darling.
Another great one Tamara. Almost better than watching the real thing. I really loathe Alex and Simon...I know some men are metro but he just strikes me as trying too hard---I think he plays for the other team. I feel sorry for them though. I mean, honestly, it must be weird walking around being so fake 24 hours a day----they must really have low self esteem.
Personally, I don't care how old the Count looks. It's not like he is in a wheel chair and senile. I just find it weird that she always calls him THE COUNT. It makes me think that is what she married him for---the title.
Hey Tamra! Your blog about the HW of NYC is HILARIOUS!! Luann's hubby DOES look old and he quite frankly, looks creepy. Someone needs to let him know that colored glasses went out A LONG TIME AGO!!!! Can't wait to hear what you have to say about next week!
CHEERS EVERYONE! Tamra's back! Fantastic review Missy! I thought you'd be all PC especially after all of the negative stuff that happened with Gretchen. Good for you for still rockin' the blog boat. Finally . . . some truth . . . instead of the mind-numbing self-promotion from the RHONYC which Bravo continues to allow. NYC Housewives - Please read my lips loud and clear . . . WE . . . GET . . . IT.
Tamra- that comment about American-Indians scalping is completely racist, ignorant and uncalled for.
If you to look like just another California blond bimbo you should at least know that. Otherwise you are making these New York women seem Ivy League compared to you.
Tamra, I loved you when you first started on OC Wives. Hated you this season for you meanness. Started to like you during the reunion show and now I love you again! You are right on in what you say about all the NYC Wives! I loved it when they showed Ramona and her hubbie in their big, beautiful Hamptons pool! The cut to Alex and Simon in their Brooklyn backyard, blowup pool, complete with traffic in the background!!! The best moment so far this season!
Tamra is dead on! I love her and it makes me want more Orange County action...I'm sick of NYC--not as funny, not as much drama, not as pretty..NOTHING! Bring Tamra and the rest of the girls back!
Tamra, you're awesome! Totally agree with you on Silex and Luann. Someone needs to put the Countess in her place. Keep up the blogging!
Tamra! I love what you say! It is so freaking funny!! I completely agree with everything!! I can't wait for you ladies in CA to come back on!
I'm loving your take on the NY Housewives. But I SO MISS OC... can't wait till next season... I agree with most of your comments. Glad to see you are getting a little more into it, unlike last week.
Looking forward to more.
Tamara-still love ya, girl. I miss the OC Housewives sooo much. I am in mourning until I start to see commercials that you are coming back. I just think you and Vicki are the best! Keep telling it like it is! I hope you are doing well.
What is wrong with YOU??? What's the point in bringing up scalping and Native Americans? Do you just lack a functioning social filter? Or fail to learn from your mistake after the "homo" comment in your show's season finale? Maybe you ARE just so insensitive and thoughtless that you could care less about how damaging words can be. And why would no one buy LuAnn's book if she somehow acted "American Indian-like"? Your inability to think and lack of concern about stereotypes like that are deplorable and inhumane. I don't care that you thought it was a joke, and big deal that you yourself are part Indian. Do you even know what tribe, the language they spoke, their tradition? It's NOT funny AT ALL, Tamara Jackson. Oh, and your new nickname is referring to President Andrew Jackson, who defied a Supreme Court ruling and forced the Cherokee from their homes in the Southeast to Oklahoma, Mrs. "I'm part Indian."
