Yeah. I have water in my left ear, so can somebody help me with that before 8 p.m. tonight?? I want to be able to hear Big Brother in stereo, because one ear isn't enough to capture all the drama.
What are you thinking about the new season? I am digging the casting, though I am worried that the Kosher guy will be bad for the Jews and the gay guy will be bad for the gays. The Jewish guy is apparently a cunning, scheming manipulative podiatrist, which seems like it won't net out well for the Jews. And, actually, the gay guy was kinda bad for the gays the minute the purse came falling out of his mouth in the first episode. He seems like a 2003 gay instead of a 2010 gay. Maybe that's just me....
But the others are great, and I love the surfer dude's bang-y hairdo and the dumb Texan dude. And I think Annie the bisexual seems funny and spunky. And the scientist dude is handsome. We have a competitor on Top Chef Just Desserts who kinda looks like the scientist dude will look in 12 years. Oh this is all such speculation and hyperbole!
Tonight on Bravo we have two of my fave shows backtoback. It's Top Chef at 9 and Work of Art at 10. Tonight both shows go into high gear in terms of the competition, and people really starting to define who they are as competitors/chefs/artists. It's all happening, in other words.
Minetta Tavern last night was a packed house, with Charlie Rose in the back booth and my table abutted by two groups of Real Housewives of NYC. Not Bravo Real Housewives, the other kind. (I don't know what's real-er, actually.)
I am so amused by the Levi-Bristol engagement. It just makes me smile. I think we should do "Bristol Getting Married?".... I'm going to comment more on the Here's What blog....
ears' to Andy, just cup your hand over the offending ear and push in and out, will make a sound but should relieve.
I do hope things work out for Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston.they're both so young and entitled to acting like fools.Now it's time to grow up and be the best parents they can be!I'm tired of the NJ housewives.Too mean, too ignorant and out and out lies.Teresa better get her mouth, her life and her actions under control.Danielle has to stop being the drama Queen.If anyone threatens you don't hire these cheezy bodyguards, call the police and press charges.As I said before in other blogs, I love my NYC housewives.They're delusional, they're childish sometimes, but they have more class than all the others.I was so frustrated with Jill, disgusted with Bethenny, worried about Kelly, annoyed with Alex for fighting Bethennys battles,and starting to love Sonja.there is no comparison with both shows.if nJ went off tomorrow I couldn't care less(except for Caroline and her family who I really like)
I realize that it's TV but really with all the problems in the world today all the house wifes and their money? They should put agruing asses together and come up with a way to make a difference. In New Jersey how about a shelter for kids? Buy some of the Jersey arm pit and put it to use.
Big Bro casting is terribly sterotypical. And I agree with you on the gay. But their gays are always THAT gay. God forbid they cast the not-stereotypical gay. That would be TWIST the contestants would NEVER see. We come in all different shapes n sizes n characteristics, yet it seems CBS goes for "Jack McFarland" type all the time. Alas, Big Bro is cheesy good, mindless summer fun. But, I swear, the casting can be SO much better.
OMG! I am a total BB Fan Andy! I really don't like how the podiatrist/jew is acting in the house... seems to draw attention and everyone hates him. Sorta dorky! Watching after Dark and Annie seems so annoying! You don't comment on Enzo. OYE! U need to shoot a syringe full of warm water into the ear and let it drain...trust me I am a MOM!
What a great idea Jan. What about a show where you take some of the housewives from different cities, throw them together, and make them do some charity project. Habitat for Humanity or something. There would be drama but they would be doing some good at the same time.
Hi Andy: As always, I'm watching Bravo daily. And enjoying it all. But I caught a rerun of Top Chef from season 1 at noon today, and was blown away at the intricacies and complexity of the dishes that they created (there were still 7 chefs remaining in this episode). Contrasting this level of results with what the current season is producing leaves today's chefs very embarrassed. Have you found it harder to recruit contestants as the seasons progress? I think you're not getting the same high quality contestant as you did when the show started. Just sayin'.
Andy, Don't you think Bravo should do a PSA on bullying? That was really horrible last night and I'm not a Danielle fan (I'm really only a Caroline fan). Is it really OK to act like they did?
Dear Andy, Am I the only one that gets a very "lady lovin' vibe" from Kim G. The sharing of a martini with Kim D at the housewarming party, the 'dancing' at the strip club with the other women, the comments and 'playful' touching of Danielle when she picked her up to go to the fashion show and don't get me started on the 'comfortin' in the back of the Bentley. Something is a little fishy. I'm just sayin'...
omg.. You are hilarous.. Seems like the 2003 gay. I love the scientist dude and why am i not the chemistry major chatting him up seriously. Most of the future scientist I went to school with did not look like that. Someone tell him i also have an MBA. We can solve the world's problem together. Anyhoo, no comments on your housewives.. Regarding the Palins and the boy, they all deserve each other. Luv you, take care of the ear.
Hey Andy! I love you!!! My great grandmothers solution is to take a dime (I don't know why not a teaspoon) top the dime with ground black pepper. Fill a teaspoon with warm water, put the pepper in the water, pour contents into your ear. Let solution run down your ear canal. Place cotton ball in ear for a few hours. The pepper will break up what ever is clogging your ear. I've used this all my life, works like a charm!
Andy -this is the first time I have ever commented on anything on television. I love you and Bravo. You are a genius in programming for Bravo. It has something for everyone. I love all the Housewives, but now my favorite is Work of Art. A really excellent program which gives all will be artists an inside look at the mindset it takes to make art. Scary sometimes but always interesting. I think you are so funny and entertaining that I could watch a whole hour of just you. Anyway love Bravo.
Relief for the ear:
Mix 2 parts rubbing alcohol and 1 part vinegar. Drip the solution in the affected ear.
P.S. Watch What Happens Live is fantastic!!!
Andy no one really gave you advice for your ear. Sorry, it is after 8, but since I get water in my ear too, I know you haven't gotten it out by 10, so let me tell you. Someone said to shoot warm water in your ear...NO NO NO....don't put water in your ear when you have blocked water already in your ear. Some people will tell you to put a little alcohol in it..but there again, if you are prone to water sitting around in your ear, that won't do it either. Do this: hold one nostril closed and put your finger to block the same side ear as well....breath deeply through the unblocked nostril about 10 to 15 times, then do the other side....this is actually a yoga breathing technique..this is also good for your sinuses....if after you still feel the water, take a Q tip...now hear me...do not put the Q tip way in your ear...only depress the bottom part of your ear while leaning with your head from one side to the other...with your head leaning to the right, depress the bottom part of the outside of your right ear....as long as you keep the Q tip on the outside of your ear, you can use Q tips...don't listen to doctors about this.. also, whatever side you have the water on, do not sleep with your head to the pillow on that side...it will only sit in your ear and get worse... some doctor will probably try to put you on predisone if you keep complaining, but that stuff can make you feel worse mentally...that is some evil medicine... Oh by the way...those NJ bit**** need to be replaced the bunch of them...and if they don't go, Ashley needs to be completely off that show for her assault of another cast member...Bravo needs a zero tolerance policy for that stuff, like MTV has...it is showing a some decorum for the viewing public, we are Americans after all, and we don't condone violence, remember? Hope your ear is dry by now, I know that feeling...
Andy, I love your show so much the only thing is I can't wait until you are back on Thursday night. Every Tuesday I wake up and remember that I missed you on Monday nite...come back to Thursdays.....
Cannot wait to see what Kathy has to say about the Levi/Bristol thing. Kathy couldn't have timed it better. That episode with her in Wasilla was hysterical. Last nights episode of D List will be next year's Emmy submission for Kathy. What a beautiful and laugh-out-loud funny episode. Love the stern looking lady from the HRC!
To clear a clooged ear:
You will need: 1 tablespoon Hydrogen Peroxide (get a new bottle not the dusty one in the corner)
Get a tablespoon (metal - not plastic) and warm to the touch the tablespoon by holding over a flame (stove top?). When the tablespoon is fairly warm (but not scalding hot) pull it off the flame and them add hydrogen peroxide and let the peroxide heat up - about 10 seconds.
DO NOT PUT THE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE ON THE TABLESPOON OVER THE HEAT - BOOM!
Have some kind person pour the peroxide into the affected ear and let it sit in there. You will hear popping and bubbling - that's a good sign. Tilt head and empty the peroxide.
