Triumph The Insult Dog Has Reigned SUPREME AND His Parade ALL OVER The #RHOA Minus #NeNePahleese #TVTIME101

Posted by ImaJustSaying on April 5, 2013


The Insult Dog, RHOA, COnan,

From the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” Phaedra, Kenya, Kandi, and Cynthia are no strangers to drama, but this might be the first time they get into a catfight with a puppet.  AND ITS FUNNY!

When watching the insult dog mocking both Kenya and Phaedra for their booty video’s competition and mostly Kenya’s “Gone With The Wind Fabulous” song that is so “Gone With The Wind Ghetto” performances, I was expecting a lot more banter and howling at each other but their restraint in laughing so hard to make a mockery of each other was interesting in the video.   I expected a lot of high fives when each other was insulted but actually, I think Phaedra had the most constraint.  SHOCKING!!!!

I do have to say that my favorite comment from the insult comic was when comparing Kenya’s style to Drag Queen’s inspiration..  hehehehe..

Excerpts via OkMagazine

What happens when the Real Housewives of Atlanta expect a visit from Conan O’Brien but Triumph the “Insult Comic Dog” shows up instead?

Hilarity ensues.

“It must be exciting to be almost as famous as pawn shop employees,” Triumph tells reality stars Phaedra Parks, Kenya Moore, Kandi Burruss, and Cynthia Bailey.

But the demeaning dog has a soft spot for Cynthia. “You’re the classiest of the Real Housewives, which is kind of like saying you’re the smartest Kardashian,” he gushes.

But Triumph and Kenya almost throw down when he continually gets her name wrong!

“You better get your hand out of my face!” Kenya commands as Triumph’s paw starts waving around.

“That little thug dog Triumph though he was going to come in here and mess with the queen bee, but he got another thing coming because I am Gone with the Wind fabulous!” Kenya later snipes to the camera before standing up and storming off.

Triumph’s response? He sniffs Kenya’s vacated seat.

What In Tomfoolery Is Going On Here? Depends On Who Is Posting The Pic? #RHONJ #TVTIME101 #TWINKLYTWEETS

Posted by ImaJustSaying on March 24, 2013


Jaqueline out with Teresa

UPDATE******  I have just learned through Elvira’s twitter that there was NO filming last night.  So now I have to ask again…   WHY was Jacqueline there if not for camera’s?  Could the reconciliation be real?  ELIZABETH!  IT’S THE BIG ONE!!!!

 

Just as I was getting ready to call it a night, a twitter post popped up from Jennifer Dalton who is newly casted on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” giving a shout out to Jacqueline Laurita, Elvira Grau and Teresa Giudice including a picture of all four of them dining and I imagine filming for the new season.  Now I cant be sure that Jacqueline was actually sitting at the table but there is a water-glass in front of her and it had me scratching my head as to WHY???????????????????

Didn’t Jacqueline swear off Teresa last season on her last blog post for Bravo?   All this flip-flopping is making me dizzy and anticipating a highly scripted season.

Jacqueline Laurita – Teresa is Out of My Life – Jacqueline is relieved to finally put Season 4 and her feud with Teresa to rest. – Oct 25, 2012

Has Jacqueline NOT learned her lesson to avoid crawling into the lion’s den because seriously, some of the plastic surgery here truly looks like a lion was the inspiration.

Now it appears Jennifer seems like a gal who appeared to embrace a foe of Teresa’s and made a point to include her in the tweet to her followers which would only help support the building blocks of old friendships that tanked seriously hard which resulted in one of the most disgusted reunion shows in the history of Bravo.  I would say Ka-dooooze to Jennifer!

Jaqueline out with Teresa2

So I had to go look at the other’s who were tagged in the tweet to see if they had anything to add and I found this.  Elvira posting the nearly SAME picture with the same exact drinks and same exact food on the table but with no Jacqueline or tweet tagging!   It appears Elvira may have purposely cropped out Jacqueline from the picture since it appears she wants Teresa to herself..  LOL  Good luck with that one Elvira!  This mission will come with a lot of azz kissing and ear bleeding every morning for an hour on the telephone!

“Joan And Melissa: Joan Knows Best” – Launches “In Bed With Joan” Podcasts – #WETV #TVTIME101

Posted by ImaJustSaying on March 24, 2013


sarahsilvermanIBWJ

Joan Rivers launched A web show in which she interviews celebrities in bed without the constraints or supervision from a censor.  This also reduces the man power and cost of bleeping her every 3 minutes or so.

The idea of this show was launched on the first episode of the current season of “Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best”.   Now we cant help but notice that this show is heavily scripted and not sure if only 5% of the show maybe real reality, but so what??  Who cares!  I love Joan Rivers and can close a blind eye to the scripted scenes.   Well one for example is that Joan was climbing into Melissa’s bed at 3:00 am where she was supposedly afraid from the previous earthquake and wanted to discuss how to prepare for an emergency.  The big giveaway that this was completely scripted was that Joan and Melissa were full on in makeup and hair and when Melissa was woken up, she had no drool down her chain..

SO WHAT???  WHO CARES!!!!!!

#RHOBH @LisaVanderpump On Dancing With The Stars Performance With @Gleb_Savchenko #DWTS #TVTIME101

Posted by ImaJustSaying on March 18, 2013


dancing-with-the-stars-lisa-vanderpump-gleb-savchenko

Lisa Vanderpump from “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” performed a Fox Trot on Dancing With The Stars Season 16 tonight and it was too bad.  Ok, maybe a little stiff?  Lisa needs to let go and have a bit more confidence.

In my opinion, Lisa has garnered major Bravo Housewife popularity from playing it safe the past few years but this is a different kind of show.  She can’t play it safe and really put 100% in dropping the humor and focusing more on technique.

I am a huge fan of Lisa’s and want her to do well.  I know her fans will carry her far thou.    Lets see it improve next week Lisa!  P.S.  Leave Giggy with Ken!

Scores Are:

Carrie Ann Inaba – 6
Len Goodman – 6
Bruno Tonioli – 6

For a total of 18 out of 30

#Cinamax #Banshee Renewed for Second Season And If Your Not Watching? Your Missing Out! #TVTIME101

Posted by ImaJustSaying on March 16, 2013


banshee-cinemax

The network has renewed the Alan Ball action series for a second season, which is set to premiere in 2014.

Cinemax is staying in business with Banshee.

Less than a month after the series premiered, the premium cable network is renewing the Alan Ball action series for a second season. The Friday night effort, which THR chief TV critic Tim Goodman called “taut, entertaining and smart,” will return with its second batch of episodes in 2014.

The drama entry,  which premiered its 10-episode season in mid-January, centers on Lucas Hood (Antony Starr), an ex-con and master thief who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, Pa., where he continues his criminal activities, even as he’s hunted by the shadowy gangsters he betrayed years earlier.

Initially developed at HBO, Banshee bowed to 483,000 viewers Jan. 11 — with nearly 1 million viewers tuning in for rebroadcasts over the course of the night. The hourlong series, which has helped put the HBO sibling on the map as a scripted player, counts True Blood’s Ball, Jonathan Tropper, David Schickler, Peter Macdissi and House’s Greg Yaitanes as executive producers.
