HOUSEWIVES OF ORANGE COUNTY ...




 
I kind of think this might be my last recap on all things Housewives.  I know I know!!  I've said it before but honestly I am getting so bored with the entire franchise.  Maybe I'm just too old to get into the drama of a bunch of 30 to 40 somethings and maybe I'm tired of the "scripted/reality" set ups.  In any event, it's all become so ridiculous and predictable that I can't do it anymore.  I think I've seen ONE New Jersey episode and Beverly Hills is right around the corner and I could care less.   

With all that said I am really looking forward to the O.C. Reunion.  I'm dying to know if Tamra has really been fired (fingers crossed) and secretly hoping that Vicki goes Porsha on Tamra and drags her ass across the floor by her ugly dried up weave!  (Namaste people). 

Heather and Terry Dubrow have really turned out to be a pair of douche bags.  Terry Dubrow lost his shit and called David Beador a penis ... Wow ... he's really gangsta.  And me thinks that Miss Heather really does need to get the stick outta her ass.  Jeez, I bet when she farts she farts in French.  Oh, and Heather ... Tamra is using you.  Just sayin' hon. 

 
Crazy Tamra screaming at Lizzie how "Eddie wouldn't touch her with a 10 foot pole!" ... Maybe not Tam Tam, but that's only because he'd probably rather shag Christian.  Open your eyes Tamster.  And speaking of eyes you should have yours checked out ... I've never known of anyone on the planet earth who could cry without manufacturing any tears. 

Vicki had a baby breakdown saying goodbye to Brianna (who I am sure is still doing cartwheels out of happiness to be away from her cray cray mother) ... I don't feel an ounce of sympathy for that woman she is so shrill and irritating and needs to be locked up in a sanitarium.  However, it was very interesting to see Vicki ALL. A. LONE.  No daughter.  No grandson.  No son-in-law, no son, no husband.  Now she'll have Brooks all to herself so he can lie, lie, lie to her just like like a rug. 



Shannon and David Beador came off very well.  Cool, collected, NORMAL. 
 

And am I crazy?  I did not know that Danielle (Lizzie’s friend) is a “Housewife”????  I thought she was just along for the ride!  Who knew?
 
Stay tuned folks!  … Next week should be a doozie ... Reunion Part I


Heather - snob

Terry - douche

Vicki - delusional

Brooks - crazy

Christian - boring

Lizzie - normal

Tamra - narcissist

Eddie - gay

TIME FOR A LITTLE VIGGO ...

Tom Stall ... History of Violence (where Viggo was robbed of an Oscar nomination!)



Nicolai Luzhein - Eastern Promises.  Nominated for Best Actor Academy Award.  ROBBED again.

 
Viggo (in the remake of "Psycho").  No nomination but we got to see his butt 
 
 
One of my FAVORITE Viggo pics ... *sigh*



 
From the film "Good"  a beautiful performance.  Viggo plays a German professor who unwittingly gets caught up in the Nazi party.  Incredible film.
 
 
Chester McFarland in "Two Faces of January" ... word on the street - he's phenomenal.  Maybe another Oscar nod????
 


 

Aragorn in "Lord of the Rings".  I'd love to find that in my bedroom.

 
Pedro, Todos Tenemos Un Plan.  Viggo's first Argentinian film.  LOVED IT.  And he looked SO handsome.

 
Viggo plays professional baseball player Eddie Boone in Sandra Bullock's "28 Days".  SO CUTE!


 
And the all time sexiest ... The blouse man Walker Jerome in "A Walk on the Moon"  *SIGH*
 
  
 
 AN ODE TO VIGGO
By Debbie Nunez
 
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways ...


I love your sexy bohemian look with your long hair and scruff on the chin




I love you when you're all dressed up and look like an elegant man ...








I love you in a plain ol' shirt when you look like a regular guy

and I love you dressed in cowboy gear on a horse with a gun at your side





















I love you in your bad boy look when you're all tatted up with a sneer

















 

















but I love you MOST when you handle your sword in that confident way as you come near ...


Viggo - a true Renaissance man, poet, artist.  
 
 

 I WANNA MARRY YOU!!!

HOUSEWIVES OF ORANGE COUNTY RECAP AND BIG NEWS ...

               ... NEWSFLASH ....

TAMRA JUDGE HAS BEEN FIRED!!!!!


Apparently, Bravo has not invited Tamra back for next season.  REASON:  She bad mouthed Bravo and told the entire world on her Facebook page how they set her up to miss Lizzie's birthday party at the last minute implying that what happens on RHOC is not really REALITY but SCRIPTED which is a big fat NO NO.  She then took to her Facebook page to rant and rave about it and Bravo did not like that.  Bravo said they were through with Tamra's Diva behavior SOOOOOOO TAMRA ...


Insert Andy Cohen here
 
OH GAWD I love when the haughty bitches of reality T.V. get their just desserts.  Gretchen ... I can hear you laughing from here.  And can I just say ... KARMA BE A BITCH Y'ALL.                                        

NOTE:  NO TEARS.
Mrs. Chipmunk Cheeks Judge then axed her Facebook account and ran off to Mexico with Husband No. 3.  I can hardly wait until she fades into obscurity.  You know Tamra ... the ENTIRE WORLD WILL NOT KNOW WHO THE HELL YOU ARE IN ABOUT A WEEK.  Just ask Jeanna Keough, Jo De La Rosa, Lauri Waring, and Alexis Bellino ... to name few (and the only reason I know these gals is because I have a blog and it's my job). 

SO, on that happy note, let's get to it. 

Lizzie with the gigantic knockers had her tits smooshed into her skin tight bustier and basically got stood up on her birthday by everyone except Vicki and Brooks.  Tamra's excuse? Her daughter was sick (ergo Tamra's firing because she was "set up" people!) ... Shannon was also unable to make it but I forgive her because I like her and everyone has been really mean to her so there! 

(Doesn't Lizzie look like a super exaggerated Sofia Loren?  BIG EYES, BIG NOSE, BIG MOUTH, BIG TITS). 


So, that left Vicki, Brooks, Lizzie (what a stupid ass name.  Perhaps you could upgrade to the more grown up sounding "Liz" ... just a thought) and her husband to celebrate her birthday.  They all went to Hollywood for dinner and drinks.  Vicki is always happy when there are drinks.  Lizzie basically fawned over Vicki and Brooks and stated how much she likes Brooks which prompted Vicki to weigh in on Tamra weighing in on Brooks and Brianna.  "If it weren’t for Tamra," said Vicki, "badmouthing Brooks to Brianna Brianna would love Brooks by now."   Vicki my love ... Brianna has NEVER liked Brooks.  Brianna will NEVER like Brooks, and you can wait until hell freezes over because Brianna is NEVER EVER IN THIS LIFETIME going to like Brooks.  DEAL WITH IT.
 

NEXT ... Tamra and Heather decide to go to Bali on a girls trip.  They also decide to have a “sit down” with Shannon (who both have been horribly mean to) to try to patch things up and move on as they are so fond of saying, but no one EVER moves on.  Heather then begins weighing in on Hinduism and Bali and the cycles of life and reincarnation (whut?) AND LONG STORY SHORT … they really want Shannon to go to Bali too!  Would you come?!  Would you? Would you?  We can all be friends again and do fun things yay!  Poor Shannon, who I’m sure would rather stick needles in her eyes than go to Bali DECIDES TO GO TO BALI because then what would America have to look forward to if Shannon DIDN’T go to Bali?  You know we all need to watch a big ol gigantic fight … in Bali. 

Heather and Tamra are now BFFs again (after being pissed off at each other at least 12 times since the season began) and Vicki is once again changing sides from Tamra to Shannon (just like she did when Tamra became BFFs with Gretchen) … Vicki is now endearing herself to Shannon.  Shannon is making the VERY BIG MISTAKE of trusting Vicki, but considering how Tamra has gotten the axe I guess Vicki feels she needs to make a new BFF and it might as well be Shannon. 

Ah the funny fickle world of reality TV.  Basically, the 6th grade playground on steroids.    














STAY TUNED FOR NEXT POST WHERE WE'LL TALK ABOUT THE REUNION SHOW!!!!  Hopefully we see a smack down! 

SMOOCHES!!!

SNARKY DEBBIE'S BACK ...

Bethenny Frankel poses in her four year old daughter's pajamas.  WHAT.  THE.  FUCK.

 
 
Seriously?  WHO DOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS???  
 
Bethenny:
 
(1)  You do know you look seriously anorexic don't you?
 
(2)  You do know you look like gristle and bone don't you? 
 
(3)  What is poor Brynn gonna feel like when she OUTGROWS her pajamas? 
      That she's a big fat pig???  You are sending a seriously sick message.   
 
I used to really like Bethenny but this is nuts.  Personally, I think she blew her marriage to Jason Hoppy.  He is such a nice and normal guy and she divorced him.  That's gotta say something right there.  It's really sad and maybe Jason should get full custody of baby Brynn.  I mean seriously, who would want to grow up with her for a mother?  She puts on her four year olds pajamas and then takes a picture and posts it ... BECAUSE THEY FIT!!!?????  Gee ... we're all so envious ... you fit into a 4T.
 
Meanwhile, over in Orange County Tamra is going to be a GRANDMA.  Her ugly Mickey Rooney look-a-like son knocked up his fiancĂ©e.  
 
Are these the ugliest people ever? 
 
Dude ... SHAVE THAT FUCKING HAIRY MESS OFF YOUR FACE JEEZ.
 
Tamra the loud-mouth who insists she NEVER SAYS ANYTHING BEHIND ANYONE'S BACK.  Girlfriend, you do realize you're on T.V. and we can watch exactly what you said you didn't say?  You do know that right?  
 
Tamra is a desperately dysfunctional mean girl who is dying to have a baby with her third husband Eddie "Chipmunk Cheeks" Judge (after she already has four kids and two marriages under her belt)  Anywho, in an effort to find out if she and Chipmunk Cheeks are baby ready she ordered one of those mechanical babys who cry and pee 24/7. 


 
TAMARA ... YOU'RE FORTY-SIX .... GET A GRIP.  You could have saved yourself all that time and trouble if you'd only asked me.  I could have told you straight out ... EDDIE DON'T WANNA HAVE NO KID.  PERIOD.  Crazy broad always wanting get married and procreate.  It's a sickness I tell you.  OH ... and apparently this isn't Mickey Rooney's first spawn.  Apparently he had another baby with another ex-girlfriend so Tamra IS ALREADY A GRANDMOTHER!  Honestly, so many sexually irresponsible people down in the O.C.

 
Over in Atlanta stud muffin Apollo Nida is heading to the Big House.  They gave him EIGHT YEARS for fraud and a multitude of other serious offenses.  Unbelievable.  This is how smart Phaedra Parks is ...  she marries an ex con, procreates with him - TWICE!  And now he’s heading back to prison.  Brilliant.  According to the web Apollo will be divorcing Phaedra.  He was pretty upset that she didn’t show up at his sentencing and as many an ex-con before him has stated ... he was set up.  (EYES ROLLING). 
GOOD LUCK Apollo.  And don't drop the soap.
 


 
 

Heather Dubrow ... you might wanna rethink the Botox ...















You're starting to resemble ...


                                                  just sayin.


AND ONE MORE LITTLE TIDBIT ...
 

So, as I am wont to do every couple of years or so I am once again going to start exercising and eating less so I don’t look like a baby whale.  To do this I MUST exercise.  I cannot just watch what I eat.  I must exercise AND watch every thing I eat which makes life a great big flippin’ bore.  SO … you all know who I live with.  The uber fit human garbage disposal who lives on Mexican food, Mexican food and ANYTHING ELSE he choses to consume because he CAN and still have the body of an uber fit 25 year old.  Disgusting.  SO guess where he takes me to lunch?  A new discovery of his called HAMBONES … (I’ll leave you to process that for a minute).
 
So I say to him, I say:  "DANNY, YOU KNOW I CAN’T EAT LIKE THAT. "
 
Danny:  “WHAT??  It’s BBQ!  BBQ isn’t bad for you!”
 


Then I get the argument …
 
Danny:  “But you’re walking again and exercising.”
 
Me:  “But I can’t exercise and eat like you.  I have to exercise and watch every morsel
         of food I put in my mouth.” 
 
Danny:  “But you said you wanted BBQ.” 
 
Me:  "I didn’t say that.  YOU said that." 
  
See what I live with.

MY INTERNAL CONFLICT .....


There seems to be a very strange melding of Christianity and the promotion of violence that I don't understand.  It completely misrepresents Christ, the Bible and the God I know.  Not that I KNOW God any more than anyone else, but I do pray and I do believe in his existence and I do believe that he is involved in human history and in our individual lives.  My conflict is this ... how can one profess to call oneself a Christian and approve the use of violence as though God would approve it and then use the Bible to endorse it?  I find it quite arrogant, not to mention hypocritical. 

Case in point:  

I have received this little gem on my Facebook wall more than once. 

and another ...

 
First of all, President Obama is THE PRESIDENT.  As for you and your AK-47 loaded and ready .... please.  And where do you get the idea that no one is going to protect you? 

These types of depictions really bother me.  

1.   WHY should every American know how to use a gun?  Are you afraid that the Taliban are going to storm your condo and make you convert to Allah?
 
2.   How is one supposed to USE the Bible?  I would suggest you read the Gospels where NOWHERE does Christ endorse the use of violence nor the twisting of scripture to ones own agenda.  In fact, he calls out the Pharisees for the very same thing. 
 
3.   Why should this be taught in schools?  I would think that along with reading, writing and arithmetic, teaching kindness, consciousness and doing unto others would be more amenable to producing decent human beings.  Not holding a Bible in one hand and a pistol in the other.

Forgive my sarcasm .... but I posted this on my Facebook page:







And immediately had comments.  One individual asked me if I was for real.  Another said that my post was silly, another gave me two thumbs down, and another went off and informed me that the Democrats would have crucified him too, as would the Republicans, the Libertarians, etc., et al.  And to be perfectly honest, I posted it to get people angry.  But then when I read the comments I felt bad because I did not feel good about inflaming others.  I merely wanted to point out the hypocrisy that exists amongst some Christian people (please note the "some" in the previous sentence).  But all I did was the same thing as others who do not like or agree with what I believe.  I don't like getting posts like the ones I posted above.  Or pictures asking me to repost if I love Jesus.  As if Christ is a fad or a club one wants to belong to.  It demeans who Christ is.  It makes a mockery of Jesus and his life.  Honk if you love Jesus.

Christ's message was one of transformation.  Living as Christ did .... and not living from a dualistic point of view or according to strict and rigid dogmatic rules.  Whatever your religious background, to condemn anyone else's religious beliefs is inherently wrong.  And to tell others their belief system is in error, also wrong.  And to believe that religion and guns go hand-in-hand, again wrong.  We cannot live with an "us" and "them" attitude because it invalidates what Jesus said and did. Christ did not come here to promote any "religion" ... he came to show us how to LIVE. To be forgiving, kind and to love our neighbor as ourselves. There can be no transformation of self if you are too caught up in dogma and literalism. To put more value in the words on the page than actually LIVING the words on the page does not promote personal transformation. 

To place a gun next to the bible as shown above is to me sacrilegious.  To suggest that this ideology should be taught in school is even worse.  And I seriously doubt that Christ would agree with this ideology as well.  It's either one or the other people.  You cannot profess to be a Christian and also be pro-violence.  Especially in the name of God. 

I did not read the "Left Behind" series because right off the bat there was a war mentality where those left behind were arming themselves against coming Armageddon.  The idea that killing in the name of God is justified and something God would endorse is something I do not agree with.  All you have to do is look at history since the beginning of time.  Violence has NEVER solved anything nor converted anyone.


People miss the message.  KINDNESS.  LOVE.  DO UNTO OTHERS.  That's it. 

 
This ideology has also become, for some people, deeply ingrained in American nationalism.  Love of country, love of God.  But it has become quite twisted.  How can the Christian love America but hate the homosexual?  Or the illegal alien?  Instead of looking at the homosexual as an abomination, one should perhaps try to look at the homosexual as the Samaritan.  Another human being, not from your particular tribe, but a human being nonetheless.  Jesus loved the outcast, the throw-aways, those who were different.  Why would he associate with these lowly people?  Why would he love them, forgive them, empower them?  AS AN EXAMPLE TO US.  To show US how to treat others.  Could this be what He meant when he told us to love our enemies?  Those that think differently than you do?  Those who live differently than you do?  Those you judge?  Those you hate?  Jesus said that the way we judge others is how we will be judged.  That right there is enough to scare the crap outta me.    
 
I find it very disturbing that many who profess to be Christian are eager to go to war, eager to send the alien back where he came from, blame the uneducated by judging them as unmotivated and condemning the poor as lazy.  Jesus would do the exact opposite.  He would love and welcome all.  Without condemnation. 
 
Transformation.  Transform YOURSELF. 
I am by no means perfect.  But to hate/judge/condemn anyone different than myself is a sin.  Jesus did not condemn, therefore no one should condemn.  The attitude of being a patriot and a Christian, bible in one hand, AK-47 in the other, disturbs me greatly.  It is NOT how we should live.  It is NOT the attitude we should have. 
 
The peacemakers who came to this earth from Gandhi to Martin Luther King were all assassinated.  Why is that?  Because they made society look at themselves?  Transforming oneself takes courage.  To examine ourselves honestly takes courage.  And to actually change oneself is courageous and honorable. 
 
Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.


There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
 
Matthew 25:35      
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.


Remember Who died for you.  Remember what He said.  Imitate what He did.  IF you truly do that then perhaps humanity can make progress ... one person at a time.

HOBBY LOBBY AND RUSH LIMBAUGH ...



RUSH LIMBAUGH ONCE AGAIN WEIGHING IN ON SHIT HE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT. 
 
From Huffington Post
(Italics are my comments)
 
On Wednesday, the radio host weighed in again.  He said one listener called him to point out that the federal government does not require employers to cover eye exams or dental work … to which Rush asked:
 
"Which is worse, to go blind from lack of regular eye exams or to get pregnant? And again, pregnancy is something you have to do to cause," Limbaugh said. "It doesn't just happen to you while you're walking down the street except in the case of sexual abuse." He claimed that women treat pregnancy "like a disease" even though it is the consequence of their actions. "And yet, they wouldn't have the problem if they didn't do a certain thing," he said. "It's that simple."
 
OPEN LETTER TO RUSH LIMBAUGH
 
Dear Rush –
 
First of all, I suggest you purchase a box of Depends prior to reading my letter.  I wouldn’t want you to soil your shorts. 
 
Rush ... let me educate you a little.  Believe it or not women actually LIKE to have sex.  YES.  They do.  Sometimes they have lots of it.  Sometimes they have it with other ladies and sometimes they have it all alone (like you do) and sometimes they have it with MEN.  MEN provide the seed that make the ladies pregnant.  NOW birth control prevents unwanted pregnancies.  Or, the men can wear this thing called a prophylactic.  It doesn’t allow the man to ejaculate into the lady (that means no pregnancy.  Unless of course, the man is like you … STERILE).
 
Pregnancy is not thought of as a disease by ladies.  It is thought of as a disease by YOU.  Responsible ladies take birth control so they don’t have unwanted babies.  I think that is called smart.  I think that is called responsible. 
 
You also stated above, that “women wouldn’t have the problem (pregnancy) if they didn’t do a certain thing (sex).  Let me ask you Rush … how long would you date a lady if she didn’t want to give you sex?  I know I know, you usually pay for it, but you know what I mean.  Men and ladies would not be together for very long if no one was having sex.  If the lady isn’t “putting out” the men get mad.  It’s not always easy being a lady.  Hey – you should ask your wife about this stuff.  She’s a lady right?  Or is she a beard?  Oh well.  Not to worry.  You will not be making any babies any time soon because after three (or is it four) marriages you have never been able to fertilize a lady.  This is because you shoot what are called blanks.  Sperms that are impotent.  You have no good sperms.  And can I just say thank God for that.  But I digress …  
 
So if I may, in the future when you feel compelled to weigh in on subjects you know nothing about, I suggest you serve yourself another gin and tonic and pop a couple of Oxycontin.  Soon, you’ll feel all tingly and nice.  Let that feeling settle in ... and stay away from the computer ... and all will be right with the world. 
 
XOXO

STAFF CONFLICT AND WORKPLACE INCIVILITY (repost) ...

Consider these telling statistics from a handful of recent studies and surveys:
(My comments are in italics)

Managers said they spend, on average, 18 percent of the time dealing with staff conflict.
(Isn't that part of
their job description? MANAGING STAFF?)

Forty-three percent of employees said they've experienced incivility at work, according to the "Civility in America 2011" poll conducted by Weber Shandwick. A Baylor University study found office incivility not only stresses people out during their working hours but also serves as a significant source of strain and strife at home.
Now more than ever, it's critical to find ways to effectively deal with stress and conflict at work. Following are some tips:
Take rudeness for what it's worth.
Being on the receiving end of an unnecessarily sharp barb or inconsiderate brush-off can ruin your day. Why let it? Constructive criticism merits reflection; rudeness does not. So, don't overthink the situation. While you can't control how someone else treats you, you can limit how much it affects you. A person's poor manners or behavior says less about you than it does about him or her.
Or you can do it my way. Keep a box of very sharp pencils on hand and when someone decides to be an asshole simply stick said pencil into said idiot’s eye. He will stop harassing you immediately. Guaranteed.
Don't go it alone.
Opening up to supportive friends or family can be cathartic. Likewise, seeking the wisdom of a mentor or sharing work-related war stories with a trusted member of your network often yields valuable insights and new coping strategies.
Or you can do it my way.  Hire my old neighbor Louie who is an ex-con and will break anyone’s knees for a small fee. Very effective.
 
Rise above the fray.
Pessimism is contagious, and it's all too easy for chronic complainers to bring others down. Don't get caught up in the negativity. It's possible to keep tabs on office undercurrents without feeding the grapevine with additional gripes, groans or gossip. Displaying a toxic attitude doesn't solve anything, but it will likely make you look bad -- and feel worse.
Or, you can do what I do. Bake some cupcakes laced with Exlax and hand out to your more negative co-workers and then wait. Guaranteed for loads of laughs!
Give yourself a break.
You might believe you can't afford to take time off. But can you afford not to? Whether you jet off to a tropical island or do a "staycation," stepping away to recharge your batteries is healthy. Getting some distance and decompressing has a way of putting even your biggest workplace woes in perspective.
Finally, take an honest look at yourself. It's very easy to point fingers and identify others' annoying personality flaws. But what about your own? Try to be more mindful of how your bad habits, moods and behaviors might negatively impact co-workers.
Or you can just say what I say ... I don't have to take a look at myself because I am not the asshole.  YOU ARE.  HAVE A NICE DAY.  DICK WAD.
