I would highly recommend Skinny Italian or Fabulicious!, if she is really not into the English language.  There are enough photos of the food (plus bonus photos of Juicy Joe Giudice!) that she might be able to figure it out. Continue reading

Unfiltered Blonde: A Review

something wicked this way comes…

Did you guys know that former RHOBH housewife Brandi Glanville is a vino-enthusiast?  If you’ve ever looked at any of her social media accounts, you would probably glean that she’s been swilling something alcoholic recently.

SO Brandi is now like totes over her divorce (did you know she got divorced? me either!) and is ready to put herself back out there!  I am just so happy that we aren’t talking about Eddie and LeAnn (Leddie) anymore that I find her first story actually hilarious.

Drinking & Dating: Part One

Oh Brandi.  Where do we even begin?  Back when The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills wasn’t the most boring city in the Bravo stable (and yes, I am even including Dallas in that superlative- even if all of those women are THE WORST, that one black haired nut is a former carney, so we all win), Brandi was a breath of fresh air, with her supermodel looks and vicious mouth.  Her close relationship with Lisa Vanderpump had a sort of Jill Zarin-Bethenny Frankel: West Coast vibe and I dug it.  Even Lisa’s melting Rod Stewert doll husband Ken seemed to genuinely care about Brandi.  Plus, she said WHATEVER she wanted and DID NOT GIVE ONE EFF. (Speaking of not giving a fuck, can we talk about everyone’s favorite new RHOBH Erika Jayne’s new music video?  It is STRAIGHT BANANAS and I LUFF IT SO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAdJzkUzV8k (maybe don’t watch it at work folks)

Eat Your Heart Out: A Review

I never really thought too much about Dean Sheremet, arguably the classiest member of the love-rectangle debacle that was the Eddie Cibrian-LeAnn Rimes affair mess in 2009.  Eddie Cibrian, of course, was married at the time to future RHOBH cast member Brandi Glanville.  To make all of this just a touch sadder and more hilarious, Eddie and LeAnn met on the set of a Lifetime movie called Northern Lights.  I haven’t seen that important piece of cinematic history.  I think even I would find it unwatchable.  And this is coming from a person who would watch Robe Lowe and Kaley Cuoco as Drew and Stacy Peterson in the Lifetime movie Drew Peterson: Untouchable on an endless loop for the rest of my life.

I have found a way to bring my love (and hate) of Bravo on my walks and in the car (and FO’ FREE!): podcasts!  I can’t believe I never realized this before.  Here’s my ranking of the millions (well, okay, just three) different podcasts I listen to from three very different BRAVOLEBRITIES (I just effing love that dumb word and try to work it into sentences as much as I possibly can):
