OK, I'm starting this blog pissed off because I had to watch this episode three times just to find something interesting. I poured myself a glass of wine, then it came to me. This is the damn Bethenny show and she isn't even a housewife. All the housewives in New York and a single broad is running the show? Go figure!
Ramona and Bethenny are walking their dogs down the MIDDLE of the street talking about how HOT Mario is and how NOT the Count is. To our surprise Mario comes cruising by in his Porsche (which reminds me of an old joke on why pricks drive Porsche's.) To everyone's surprise, Ramona throws the bag of dog crap into Mario's car and he wings it back at her. Oh my God, I swear I threw up in my mouth then swallowed. There is something about dog crap in a bag that grosses me out.
I wanted to give LuAnn a big hug tonight. She was so cute walking around the house talking with her mouth full of food about the animals that they killed (run Aston run) and about how much she will miss Victoria. She didn't ONCE refer to her self as the Duchess, the Princess or the Countess...whatever her title is. She seemed really down to earth, I have a feeling she really is a sweet lady.
You have made me laugh with your blog, you are right why a horse in the living room? I am curious to know about the situation between Ramona and Alex, why she always run the other way?
Keep it coming girl. You are funny. Barbara
Tamara I love your blog, finally the New York ladies are getting it back, did anyone see Bethanny's blogs about the oc ladies, so shut up! If you dont like her blog dont read it and if you dont like her show dont watch it! I agree with you though, its the real housewives not the single ladies, to be a housewife its custom to be married!!!
Never was your biggest fan as an O.C housewife (maybe editing) but you are spot on w/ New York. Won't badmouth, not my style, love Jill's hair extensions, Bethany's witt, Alex; love to be her weight and the countess...well she has a good housekeeper.
I agree with another viewer's prior comment on how 99% of the comments to Tamra are the positive ones and, if the rest of us are lucky, will be in that 1% negative comment which appears here. And, we ALL know how many of us wishing our negative slant on Tamra's insecure, petty, jealous and bullying behavior would finally make it to the posting board. Shame on you, Bravo, for putting it all out there on television for the world to see, yet too cowardly to post what we actual viewers really think. Maybe next time...
TAMRA - love ya, i really do. VICKI - i want to love ya, but you're self! GENNA - i have simpathy for you, first couple of seasons i just loved ya. but now, this past season, you can see that your unhappy. you need to find self-confidence. but i understand separation isnt easy. GRETCHEN - your pretty and all. im sure your alot of fun. but i cant stand a liar and a deceiver. those character traits are like tar in your hair. LAUREN - your nice and all but it just seems that now your just concerned what people think of you and your affraid to give your opinion. this season it seemed you were protecting something. we rarely saw you. not to be mean, i think most of us (viewers) have forgotten you. it just felt like you didnt want to be apart of the show.
AS YOU CAN SEE WHY I LOVE TAMRA, I CALL IT FOR WHAT IT IS, JUST LIKE TAMRA. TAMRA I CAN RELATE TO YOU ON SO MANY LEVELS. FROM HAVING A CHILD YOUNG AND THE HARDSHIPS (i now have 4 boys), TO PARENTS(mine divorced after 30yrs), RELATIONSHIPS, ETC. I THINK YOU ARE ACTUALLY THE NORMAL ONE ON THE SHOW. REALLY! OH, AND I lOVE YOUR HUMOR! ~i hope you return for the next season~
I can not stand housewives of new york! I can't bring myself to watch one entire episode. Can't wait for the next season of orange county!
Tamra, why in the world is there a Real Housewives of New Jersey when there could be a Real Housewives of MIAMI?! What is Bravo thinking? Watching these Jersey girls is going to be like acrylic nails scratching against a chalk board! Loud, tacky and INTOLERABLE!
I am dying for someone to address the issue on how much better the NYC wives look compared to the OC wives...everything is so cheap and overdone on the west coast...I much prefer the elegance of the east coast...I don't know, maybe its the sun, but all of the OC wives just look beat up...
anyone else agree?
How disappointing in Bravo that you were picked to blog about the RHofNYC. I've lost total respect for you during your season of RH and honestly hoped you would go away. Apparently not.
I LOVE your blogs. You have a great sense of humor and I love that you are blogging for us on the NYC show. Keep up the good work, I look forward to you each week. Laughter is the best medicine.
Becky Z. :)
Tamra...omg I love you!!! besides being gorgeous...you are so freaking funny...and right...love you...have the best day xoxo~angie(tink!)poof!!!
You're hilarious & witty! You & Bethany are my all time favorite housewives because of your humor! Love reading your thoughts on the NYC ladies!
Tamra is going to need therapy. Gretchen is young hot and now with slade! Who's the one that needs to get drunk now Tamraaaaa!!!
You know, I didn't realize how consumed Real Housewives of New York City is with Bethenny until you mentioned it. It is a little ridiculous. Kind of like Gretchen, who isn't married either????? WEIRD Anyway, Tamra, I have to say that to no surprise you are my favorite housewife! P.S. That diamond bracelet your hubby gave you last season is to die for!!! He is definitely a keeper girlfriend :)
NOW I have to agree with you 100% Bethanny Bethanny and more pathetic Bethanny ...to get upset just because of touch ups? hmmm... waht about makeup? makeup! makeup!.. why.... how dare you ask if Im wearing makeup! too funny!! keep up the good blogs love it!! (kelly can take a hike anytime please)
You used to me my favorite Housewife, then you & Vicky tore Gretchen apart on the Reunion show. Very tacky, very low class. didn't your Mom teach you when you can't say something nice don't say anything at all. You made yourself look very small & I for one lost all respect for the both of you. I hope they think twice about asking you back next season. Let's get some true entertainment, not Tacky, Jealous, Catty women.
Loving your blog this season! You're giving it right back to New York and it's fabulous. But now to the good stuff - any comment on the pictures that surfaced this week of Gretchen and Slade making out on the boat while she's still wearing her "engagement ring" from Jeff?
Everyone should read Slade's where are they now. He was dating Gretchen while she was on the show with Jeff in the hospital.
You are hysterical. I love your blogs....please keep writing them. This is my non-mommy time for the week, my secret obsession. I watch all the housewives and by far orange county is my fav!
you go girl! I love ur harsh and honest comments. Besides Jenna I think you are the most honest person on the show. Love watching and looking forward to next season.
I tottaly agree Tamara! Bethany rules the show. I think she is the most honest and up front woman on there. She reminds me of you on the real housewives of Orange county! Although I'm still on the fence on how I feel about the Countess. She still seems very stuck up.
Tamra I absolutely love you. You call a spade a spade. I've watched the HOC since the beginning and you were my favorite addition. Loved Tammy, Quinn had to go for sure!! What was her point ever? My goodnesss how do you deal with Vicki for real. I love her but hate her more! Jeanna is a women to look up to. I do love Bethenny though and besides Jill she is my favorite so maybe let off just a little. I think you're a wonderful person and I envy you and Simons marriage. I am in love with the reunion show. Props to you for calling Gretchen out. You always said it from the beginning and by "golly" you were right!! TEAM TAMRA..... Love ya girl, Kristy from NH
Tamra -you're cool and definitely a favorite. But, come on...Bethenny is funny, ambitious, smart, and attractive. I never fast forward when Bethenny is on screen and most of my friend think the same thing....so all in all...I'm glad it's the Bethenny show. Her comments crack us up and she never brags...unlike some of the other wives.
Tamra, I think you are right about Luann. They are trying to make her the bad person on the show but I don't think she is. I do get tired of her sometimes but she is not bad.
Tamra- You're the best! I am so you, except for having a child at 18. Which is nothing to be frowned upon about! I agree with you on everything... Keep it up! Fiesty!
I like the way that you "Called it like you saw it". Keep up the good work.
P.S. Next season, Call it like you see while ON CAMERA... That way, we will all get it sooner. Not to mention the fact that it WILL make for better TV.
I'm just saying!!!!
Take care & keep 'em coming.!!
HAHA! Yeah Tamra! I couldn't agree more! Well actually, unlike you, I can't stand Alex and Simon, but oh well. You're hilarious and I find your blogs to be very amusing.
To: Jennifer Dugan I have written many times since the OC wives began, but, they never post it. When Slade was on that dating show with Jo (before this season of the OC wives began), he wrote in one of his blogs that he was dating a Gretchen Rossi, said how "hot" she was and that we'd see "a lot more of her". I assumed he meant on his show with Jo. Well, when the OC wives came on, I went to his blog and asked about his relationship with her and how did she end up on the OC wives with a fiancee? The next day, his blog was erased!!! He must have been dating Gretchen before or while she was engaged to Jeff. The media is now making it look like she just started dating Slade after Jeff died? That seems to be another ghost in her closet? I am glad that Tamra, Jeana, etc., finally "outed" Gretchen's long bed of lies.. Many of us felt it from episode one, but, no one would answer our questions and it seemed to be swept under the rug to make her look good/like the victim on the OC wives show. Only the "poor Gretchen" comments get posted and we got tired of it and it made us annoyed that the show was becoming too staged/scripted. Check it out and let us know what you find? There seems to be a lot more lies that Gretchen had in her closet/bedroom. Seems like Tamra, Vicki, and Jeana were made to look bad for not accepting her. Anyone who writes stuff about Gretchen never seems to get posted. Glad to see that people like you are finding out the truth..
I have to admit in the beginning I did not care for you to much, but the more I watched about you, the more I liked you! Your real...which you dont see alot of on reality t.v.(especially NYC lol)I think this last season with Gretchen you showed a very immature side to you though. I realize she is young and hot and somewhat a threat to be around, but you took it a little bit to far with your actions, and negative comments you made about her situation. Obviously there is some drama going on behind the scenes that we are just now starting to hear about(Gretchen&Slade are you f-ing kidding me?)so if thats the case then more power to ya sister! And Gretchen deserves everything you did to her!
Tamra, I loved your blog. You have a real talent writing very witty. I feel for you though, The Wrath you receive from the Wacky Obsessive Gretchen Fans. I don't get why they come here and talk smack. All it does is show how obsessed some of Her fans have become. So sorry! And I think what Viewer wrote on 3/23/09 at 10:24am could be on to something??? Would not surprise me. But I have a Question. Who is Jennifer Dugan?
> I love the fact that you "outed" Gretchen on the reunion. even from the beginning, I knew that there was something about her. she's fake, and a player.
Tamra, If you wrote a book, I would totally buy it. You are halarious and I love reading your blog. You should just write about your life experiences, or about about you and Simon. You guys seem to have a really solid relationship and I really admire that.
You said it! All the housewives in New York what is a single girl doing on the show? I have been thinking that too. Since I couldn't get myself to get into the show's 1st season (tried to watch few times but could only take few min before I had to change the channel),I thought Bethany must have been divorced or engaged at least. Sort of like the Jo in the Real Housewives of OC. Btw, that shouldn't count! Jo was a real Put Up or Bought off Woman of the OC at the max.
Besides none of the NY housewives are typical of New York. The reason I like Real Housewives of OC so much better is because you girls are so much truer to your roll and (excuse me for saying) the generalization. NY has too many different mix of people, in terms of back ground, culture, education, money... there is no way to pick out few and have them truly be the representatives of NY Housewives. So in return we got the Real Want to be s and the show offs of NY. The real riches of NYC will never talk about their money, the real socialites are not fans of that name. And most of New York house wives are nothing like them. I should know, because I am a Manhattan Housewife myself.
I LOVE YOUR BLOGS! I'm glad your blogging in on this season, it's the most hilarious part. I never thought you were mean or hateful. And I'm glad you let everything off your chest on the reunion show. Gretchen sucks! TEAM TAMRA!
I love orange county houseviwes. this was my first season watching. can't wait till it comes back. new york i tried no go.
LOL Bumping fuzzies, ewwwwww!!! I miss the Orange County Housewives!!! NY is soooooo boring, and none of the women except B have any good looks, OR class. They seem very trashy. Cant wait for OC to come back! (without Gretchen)
If you ask me, the New York housewives are the BEST! At least these women have some brains, individuality, and personality. After seeing a few episodes of the Orange County show I was disgusted... The New York girls do some good in this world, which is more than I can say for the blond bimbos with fake boobs in Orange County. (I can't tell one from the other until they open their mouths) It's refreshing to see women of different sizes, looking like real women, such as the New Yorkers are. Some have big boobs, some small ones.. some have dark hair, and some blond, but they don't all try to look alike... also, they don't try to hurt each other intentionally. (But I do think Ramona should move to Orange County... she's a perfect addition to their crew!) The New York Housewives RULE.
Tamra, obviously you have some immense jealousy of single women. I see no problem with a single woman being on the show. Bethany is a breath of fresh air. Actually the whole New York gang is a breath of fresh air since they aren't stabbing each other in the backs all of the time. (example: throwing a party and trying to hook up a woman with your own son. That makes ME sick!) Please, for your own sake, try to examine your own past and figure out why you harbor such jealousy. Why would it bother you that someone has a Porche? Is it because your husband is a Mercedes Used Car Dealer? Other's cars should have no bearing on your life, so don't take it so personally. Trust me, you'll feel better about yourself if you can embrace all women -- young, old, single, married, divorced, widowed, etc. Jealousy will eat you up inside and eventually it shows on your face. I'm not being mean, just telling you like it is.
Tamara, I can't believe that you have the mouth that can let the words "morality" cross your lips. You have no morality what soever? You are the one that pimped your son out and then have the nerve to let the words "MORAL" cross your lips. You are a 2 faced piece????? Like Gretchen or not, your are so phony? You and your friend Vicki. Vicki who throws her husband under the bus any chance she gets... The one who's loudness out does Gretchen hands down. Get a live. Or understand what a live is?
