Coming off of the girls trip to Canada, it was good to get back to our normal routines. This episode really showed all of our personal lives rather then our relationships with one another. . .and I kind of liked that.
There was something very tender about the scene with the Dubrows. Sure, they sold their huge mansion, which is like a modern day palace, and that may not be that relatable. However, the love, adventure and family aspect which they talked about is something that I think we all can connect with. I like picturing Terry at home with his family having dinner nightly. Apparently, they will have better views and taller ceilings, but at its core their conversation is what we all want and strive for. It gave me the warm fuzzies and was a sweet moment to share with them.
The Vicki, Brianna, Brooks love triangle stresses me out. I want Vicki to be happy, but Brianna's concerns seem to hold weight too. Brianna and Vicki are obviously super close. So, for Brianna to feel so negatively about Brooks makes me think Vicki's relationship with him is doomed. A woman can never choose between her children and a man. The children will always win. Love should always be enough, but it seems that Vicki needs to listen to Whitney Houston's "Didn't We Almost Have It All," pack up, and drive away…
Soooooooooo faux. Lydia is the least Christian Christian I've ever seen! If someone insults her, she attacks and attacks and attacks, and never ever lets it go. If she insults anyone, they're expected to DROP IT RIGHT NOW. No turning the other cheek or forgiveness for this faux Christian.
I was an abused woman and you sound just like me when I made excuses for my abuser. How could you forgive that loser for saying those things about your daughter.have some self esteem.
this thing with brooks and vicki... what is going on? who hates brooks that much,
for vicki's daughter and son inlaw, not to trust him? could some one just make up this stuff about him?
is there any proof that brooks is lying about who he is?
Vicki is not the queen of RHOC. She's just old, rude, filled with lies, loud, and obnoxious. Its' time for her to get off the show, but then she wouldn't have anything to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ryan is a jerk and also a liar....as the show has shown. He was so mean to your Mom - he was on some kind of power trip and then he LIED about what HE said and what your Mom said. He is a disgrace.
johnann.s.allen I really do not think Ryan is a jerk or a liar, he is living in a nutso world designed by Vicki & his limit may have been reached, i doubt we heard the whole interaction ~~ did he over react, you betcha, was he rude, you betcha ~~ however, he was only standing behind Vicki's adament treatment of the way she expects people to treat her furniture, she is very materialistic, Piled on top of the the friction with the Brooks thing & an upcoming DEPLOYMENT ~ think real hard before you judge the man living in Vicki's home ( personally, I think she hates men ). Does he owe an apology, of course, there were many many dynamics going on here & Vicki is not one who will be happy about her furniture being abused ~~ he could have been nicer but with Vicki's attitude, would not want her wrath if I had not done something to try to help ~~ I could not even imagine the stress he must live with with Vicki, and again, I am sure we did not hear any more that they wanted us to hear ~~ not many had behavior above reproach in my opinion, some were a little better than others. I found Lydia's remark about Americans rather insulting, I found many things she said rather insulting when she thinks she is being quirky or a "friend whisperer " In fact there was only one incident that I thought she was clearheaded & right. I do hope that Ryan will apologize eventually. But to attack him without all the facts ????
It Funny People who preach about Faith, they are the meanest and judge mental, people I have ever had the dis pleasure of talking to.
Why do you all suck up to Vickie? Vickie is SO revolting in every way: her childish insecure rivalries, her choice in friends and men, and most of all her dishonesty. I will leave her looks out of it...
Hi Lydia :)
Well, I quickly read a few of the blogs before ...<sigh> is all I can do...Annnyyywayy, you and I seem to have the same thinking when it comes to being an optimist and ALSO when you think someone should quit and run. lol..
I love your blogs, you ARE NOT BORING so forget these small minded people that say that you are. You're a breath
of fresh air...AND your husband is just fine. He realizes you can hold your own. Besides, look who you were dealing with..(Slade) <wink> There are times I like him and times I question his motives..I'm over 3,000 miles away so what the heck..lol I like all the women, for different reasons. We all have qualities about us that shine through. I'm lucky I'm a person that can spot them. Somes it may take a while..lol...
Have a great hiatus sweety and hope to see you on the show in the future. Have a great fall/winter or whenever..hehe..Bye for now...Melinda
Guess what, you think Brooks is controlling?
Have you seen Ryan?, run Brianna while you still can,
Brooks is harmless creepy, but Ryan is SCARY creepy!
Wow Don, Thank GOD you got away! Can we have Don come back, kick some ass, and then go?
Vicki, you need this...cause you are being a doormat, listen to your brother..
The love of Christ shines through you! I am so overjoyed that you and Alexis can share the good news ! We all fall short and you relay the need for Christ in this broken world. I also have a grow group and it helps so much! Being a Christian is not being perfect...very far from it. It is admitting we can't do it on our own!! God bless!! Xo
ccdiva I agree. Ryan was a disappointment but you are her daughter. "And this is my mom the pothead". NICE!
i think it's brianna and that raging maniac
of a husband, ryan, who need to pack up and move away. too bad the baby will go with them, but they need to get out of vicki's house.
Sorry but Lydia is boring! All her "magical" ways does not cover her unwillingless to forgive Slade & to keep stirring the pot with Gretchen is very un-christianlike. At least in my church it is. He was making a joke! Get it? To keep throwing it in his face like that is pitiful. You must want to make yourself irrevelent! It isn't working.
I think Alexis is such A good person !She isn't any more about herself then any of the other's .Let's C ,Heather showing off her big old house & a segment about building another .Gretchen showing off car's ,slade in a chopper ,a big ole ring .Vicki redoing her home ,having a big old party that cost alot !Tamera (the only one ) ,i guess she just live's !So 2 even trhing Alexis is any worse then any of the others is rediculis !So happy u & her speak about the Lord .We need more of that on these show's .I think this may b why Alexis was attached ,but now they c u to walk with the Lord well things have changed .keep up the good work .I don't think u really did much wrong when it came 2 slade.u needed 2 point it out to him .Should u have done it just with him ,may b but hey we aren't perfect !NO ONE IS !!!C U all next season !!
The son-in law was really mean to your mom. I thought he was a real a--. I found when some men can't defend their actions they put women down by calling them names and insulting them. The ones that aren't very smart anyway. Vicki's not perfect and she should admit when wrong. But Slade is a jerk and so is Vicki's son in law. I would have cried if someone talked to me the way he did your mom.
Lydia, seriously get over yourself. You are a brat and the cheeseburger comment was a joke. You shouldn't be on the show bc you are boring and a trouble maker and your pot head mother condones drug use. Stay classy!
I thought Tamra was my favorite, but I just love you! I'm not a christian (not anymore), but I love the fact that you are, and you are always trying to stay true to your christian values because I left due to the hypocrisy I experienced while amongst them.
Lydia, I don't see how you can't understand that attacking someone's character is as bad as talking about someone's looks. You are going to end up being a Vicki or a Tamra, a mean girl. You should try to be more like able like your mother.
Babbs0145 i agree, there is no difference and i am sorry i am tired of women who say dont talk to or about women that way, but we can dog you down and out all day long and it is all good. i am a women i would never talk to anyone that way because he said he wanted to call me cheeseburger, because he wants to give me a cheeseburger, WOW, what a horrible thing to say, its not like the things you said, which were so lady like and lets not forget Christian. I think you are the as hurt as Slade, since as you said hurt people hurt. Girl watching you tear into Slade and not even hear what he was saying to you or Alexis (you need to appologise, what you said DEVISATED HER) and Slade saying I did appology, what i said was not to hurt you, and Alexis with the hands on the face, like that was then you need to say it again, why doesnt he understand?)and you still yelling, tells us all, that you have something to say and there is no room to listen. Is that not one of the believes you have in your life, to allow people their voice. I notice when you go off Doug is not there standing by his women saying she is right, he is probably use to the crazy not that I think your crazy, i just think the way you and Vicki and Ryan acted that night was crazy, agreed? Try and do what you said you were going to do in the begining, the voice of reason.
Wow! I just rewatched the last 3 episodes and was so dissappointed in your reactions as a "Christian". I too am a child of God (Christian). But I guarantee if I were being telecast for the world to see, I would be much more careful in how I react towards people. Please keep that in mind should you return next season. On another note, thank you for turning Alexis attitude around. Although as a so called Christian she sure likes to stir the pot and it is very much an all about her person. SO dissappointing. I realize we don't see everything, so I could be wrong. But that is how she is coming across. Please don't fall into the trap!!
Lydia, Wow! Just watched this weeks preview. I'm apauled Vickys son by law was so disrespectful to your mom. I hope every grown man there stepped in to your moms defense. That kid has serious anger issues. I have a son Ryans age, he's a big guy played college football. He would never ever talk to an older woman, a grandmother in that matter. There was no excuse for his behavior. My sons friend was in the Marines, he did tour of duties. I know for a fact that sort of treatment towards women is not condoned. Your mom is the sweetest lady, so kind, always has pleasant thoughts.I hope someone set him straight when he called your mom a bitch! Sorry I just couldnt wait to blog about this. Ive never seen such poor behavior. He's giving the Marines a bad name!!
I hope you have the backbone to confront Ryan for the way he treated your mother and demand that he apologize. He treatment of your mother was one of the rudest things I've seen on any of the housewives shows.
God! I hope you do not return next season! Even if I close my eyes, your nagging, squeaky voice makes me want to throw a shoe at my TV! Aaarrrgggghhh!
Seriously! I can't find anything redeeming about you...agree with the comments below about this whole Christian thing...what a load of crap. I have yet to see an ounce of honesty...so phony and fake...and BIG TEETH! Yuck!
i like you Lydia, i just think there is something about your reaction to Slade and Gretchen that is pretty off, the cheeseburger comment was a joke we could all see that he was not trying to be rude, but you took it there, and when he said he did not mean to hurt you it was just a joke was not a goodenough apology, why? the way you came across in that sceen was ruder then anything Slade said, rewatch and be honest with yourself. As for the tupperware face, we all heard him say I heard them call her tupperware face, you know they have such a long history of bad issues, most of them because of Vicki, watch the past one, Vicki was relentless to Gretchen and Slade and now that its her and brooks, she say's what she said doesnt matter because it was 5 years ago. But it wasnt 5 years ago, it started 5 years ago and went on and on. it you look at that and still condon what Vicki does, then you need to question why your made at Slade and Gretchen. You and Vicki need to get off the Slade is bashing women comments, he is bashing Vicki and she kindof put herself in that postion, and he did not bash you, everyone makes a joke and this one he already told you, he did not mean to hurt you. Try and take your faith and foregiveness and work it into your whole life, Love how Vicki did not stand up for your mom, but your standing right beside her with Slade, why??
I agree with all you said netti.
Christians are to be forgiving, not judgmental, and really should not be stiring the pot. Lydia you claim to not be stiring the pot, that you are just being "authentic", BULL, your eye rolling and smirks say it all.
Newsflash.....you are just as judgmental and pitiful as the rest of them are. In a word? NUTBAG.
Please stop telling people that you're a Christian. Saying it doesn't make it true... because actions speak louder than words. Take a look at your actions....they do not denote Christianity in any meaning of the word.
When I looked at the preview of Vickie's party, I thought you had put on that black stuff football players use under your eyes. You look like maybe you put your makeup on in a bumpy car.
Lydia, the last two episodes were real eye openers as the real you appears to be coming out. I really don't get your nasty comments on Gretchen and Slade. You appear to have an extreme jealously of Gretchen, and Slade's comment was just a joke, you should watch the episode. It appears you have some deep negative energy that we are only starting to see now. Definately boring, where are the smart women this season.
okck Lydia is a breath of fresh air! I love to watch Lydia's scenes. Her relationship with Doug is so special!
when is it special, when they are laughing at Heather together..... that's real special!!!
another Heather....yes, Lydia...the party was ALL ABOUT YOU!!!! wow! keep sitting there TRYING to HIDE the smile when the fighting begins and "say" how you hate to see it all, and how much it bothers you while you run back for more and "ask people if they are okay with so and so" when everything is calm and good! yep, not all of us are blind!!! and, tell ur buddy, Tamera, to stop using her newfound Heather language on the car ride to the wonderland party, "oh my!" its soooo not her! ew!
I cannot stand Ryan the way he spoke to your mom was disrespectful and he should be ashamed of himself Your mom is the sweetest women ever and Vickie better put a handle on him.
jh102289 I know my jaw dropped. I just couldnt believe it. When Brianna grabbed his arm he said in a very hostile manner,"DON'T TOUCH ME!" That boy, yes, boy, has major anger issues. He keeps bringing up the fact that" he pays rent." He's living in a sprawling estate in a gated community.Paying only a thousand dollars a month. Cota de Caza is not Tennesse or wherever he's from in the south. A thousand bucks a month to live in a resort is dirt cheap. I guarantee it doesn't cover Vickies expenses to have his family living there. It has me worried the way he went off on your mom, his elder, a grandmother. Then became hostile with his wife when she grabbed his arm,that's not a good sign on how he views women and how he'll treat his wife later on down the road. Scary!! I'm glad his behavior was filmed. He's clearly not a good man.
