    It’s definitely been very repetitive. Every episode so far has been the same conversations and nothing new has happened, but that might change with the Toronto trip. I also think it’s being hurt by almost everyone having the same storyline: new babies, and men being trash. It’s still better than season 11, though.

    @Ruthless Love What are your most unpopular Real Housewives opinions? Here are a few of mine: The revisionist history regarding Phaedra is bullshit. She's a bad person and doesn't deserve to come back, but she was an amazing housewife. I know people say it's good, but I can't get into Dallas anymore and pretty much gave up. I enjoyed it back in season 2 but that's about it. Sheree getting fired was a mistake both times and she should still be on the show. She's the true heart and comic relief of Atlanta. Jill, Gretchen, and Brandi should all have their apple, orange, and diamond restored respectively. Bethenny Frankel is the most overrated housewife of all time. Dorit is the true queen of Beverly Hills. Marlo is slowly getting better. I'll add more of I think of any.

    "You know what Posche stands for? Piece Of Shit Cokewhore Homewrecker Everyday!" The whole Teresa vs. Kim D feud was a mess but at least Dolores wasn't up Teresa's ass for once. I know you don't like Jersey at the moment, but in my opinion they always deliver (except for season 6). The new girls have all been major successes for the show.

    The H is for Homewrecker. "I thought this was Real Housewives of New Jersey, not Tales from the Crypt."

    Unpopular opinion: Kim D is an underrated queen. She took on Teresa, Melissa, Danielle, and Margaret all at once and didn't even flinch. Clink clink, bitch.

    Also, I gave a huge interview today with an extremely controversial person for my journalism class and I felt like Carole the whole time.

    Ewww. I was rooting for her, but some women don't want to be saved and just have to learn the hard way I guess. Obviously it's not on the same level, but Nicki Minaj for example.

    This is sad...3 of the legendary season 9 cast are now gone. Sorry but I honestly miss Jill and want her to come back. I hope the new girl Leah is good.

    She definitely qualifies too. I have no idea why a homophobe would want to be on a gay-friendly network. At least Marlo backed up her homophobia with messy and entertaining fights (once again, not that that makes it any better but I don’t watch these shows for moral purity). Has there been any update on Amber’s stepson? I think a boring housewife is a far worse crime than a crazy, evil, or annoying housewife. At least those types cause drama and are fun to hate. I get that the viewers’ natural reaction is to want bad behavior to be punished, but we saw how BH went downhill without Brandi and if all the bad ones got fired nothing would happen. Some of them, such as Tamra, are necessary evils. Literally who would carry all the bones on OC without her? Gina and Kelly aren’t smart enough, Braunwyn cares too much about being liked, Emily is too nice, and Shannon is too weak to be that big of a shit-stirrer without cracking. I’m living for the Tamra backlash this year, but honestly, what would this show be without her? She’s been on since season 3. It’s hard to imagine OC without her at this point, especially when the premise of the show has been “mean blondes spread rumors and have catfights” for over 10 years now. Tamra started that.

    I like everything about Emily except for Shane and the fact that she's a Trump supporter. Not that it makes it any better, but everyone else on the show is probably one too so I don't really hold it against her that much. Braunwyn's husband reminds me of Scientology era Tom Cruise. He just has that energy about him and I feel like it will be further explored if they stay on for future seasons. As much as I hate on Tamra, Kyle, and Nene for example, it would probably be someone a lot more boring than that. As much as those housewives grind my gears, they're important to the show and have impact and a legacy, and they all have at least one redeeming quality. Nene is funny even when she's wrong (and Old Nene is my all time favorite housewife, even over Kenya...I just hate what she's turned into), Tamra stirs the pot and makes the show worth watching, and Kyle is a good mom. I also dislike Vicki but once again she's the OG and great for the show, Bethenny but what she's been able to accomplish is amazing, Caroline Manzo but I think she's probably a good person, and Kim Zolciak but Tardy for the Party is a bop and I'm nostalgic for her Big Poppa days. My least favorites would probably be the boring one-season wonders who offered nothing interesting to the show, for better or for worse. So, probably people like Peggy Sulahian and Cindy Barshop. I can't think of anything to say about them and they were just sour. However, if you extend the question to all Bravo shows it's Jax and it's not even close.

    I will never be Team Tamra, unless the other team is Girth Brooks. This is the most I've been excited about a reunion for a long time though. I'm so curious to see Tamra vs. Kelly and what apparently went down between Vicki and Andy. It's so funny to me how public opinion switched on Emily and Gina this year. Last year neither of them were popular, but people liked Gina a lot more than Emily, who they found boring and pointless. Now Emily is a fan favorite, and everyone hates Gina even more than the Tres Amigas. A lot can change in one season. Someone called into WWHL when Emily was on it and called Braunwyn "Boring Wind." Did they lie? LMAO. I actually hope she stays on the show because I think she has potential but she's so desperate to be liked it's actually kind of tragic. She's like a "cool girl" version of Taylor Armstrong and Dana-Pam.

    I loved Ramona dragging Vicki but I honestly think they’re both wrong. Jersey and Atlanta put the Housewives on the map to the general public, specifically the early antics of Teresa, Danielle, Nene, Kim, and Sheree.

    Also, Caroline and Jill look stunning. I feel like Kim is much happier now and I hope she enjoys her life with her family off cameras instead of coming back to this group. It's not a good environment for her and I think Kim is a good person who just got lost for a little while. I'm always rooting for her.

    BravoCon looked so fun. Apparently the tickets were really expensive, but if they do it again I want to go. I was worried beforehand because it sounded like the gay version of Fyre Festival, but it seems like it ended up being a success! Seeing all the photos and videos makes me realize that Bravo (the stars and the fans) is really a community. These crazy ladies have brought so much joy into my life over the years, and if I find out someone else watches them we're instantly friends and have tons to talk about. I've kept up with them for so long and even if I don't necessarily like some of them, I'm still able to see them as complex three-dimensional characters and it feels like I know them at this point. Most of them have at least one redeeming quality, so I can never truly hate them. I just found out today that a girl in my poetry group is a huge Kelly Dodd stan, and we were already becoming friends but now it's true love haha <3
  17. Are you guys really thirsting for Scooter? ...Him? ...Seriously? ...Unironically? Do better in 2020.
  18. Hermione

    Okay. I totally agree that this was messed up of Lizzo and I hope this poor woman wins in court. Celebrities shouldn't be using their platforms to shame service people, especially knowing how crazy their fans can be. But the idea that Lizzo is even remotely on the same level of problematic as Nicki and Cardi is laughable. Call me when she supports multiple rapists and wishes AIDS on people. Anything can happen, but she has a long way to go.

    This is the most excited I've been for a reunion in a long time. We have: Kelly vs. Tamra Kelly vs. Shannon Kelly vs. Gina Kelly vs. Vicki Shannon vs. Tamra (but apparently it got resolved) Gina vs. Braunwyn Gina vs. Emily Tamra vs. Emily We're overdue for a good old-fashioned OC screech-off. Kelly is my favorite but she's so off-the-rails that I can't help but think she might not be back next season. Did you see she just got engaged to Rick Leventhal from Fox News?

    Call animal control...There's a cougar on the loose in the OC!
  21. The Voice audience and People's viewership overlap...Middle America housewives love both of them. That's why they keep getting picked. The vast majority of them are also white.
  22. It's pretty obvious by looking at past winners that People's Sexiest Man Alive is a public relations bidding war...and yet their choices are still better than the annual ATRL list.

    Tamra dressed in a garbage bag...she’s finally in on the joke.

    I honestly think both of them are boring and overrated...on this show at least. They both seem like nice people though and are obviously legends. You can't tell me there's not a single thirsty bored trophy wife in LA who's willing to mention it all and get the girls shook. There are probably thousands of them out there. Bravo is just coddling the cast at this point because they see them as "real" celebrities since they're actresses, bring high ratings, and might walk if the show gets too messy. No other city gets this special treatment. Every other Housewives show, including Beverly Hills in its early seasons, keeps it real and shows the good, the bad, and the ugly. If I were Teresa or Luann for example I would be pissed that I had to put my scandal on camera and the Beverly Hills housewives can just hide theirs and pretend everything is fine.
