Married to the Medicine – It’s Getting Hot in Here

Let’s start with Lisa Nicole Cloud… She’s a savvy businesswoman who’s constantly shamed by her husband’s behavior. Dr. Darren Cloud, is a good guy, but seems to struggle with staying in the marriage lines. Lisa Nicole’s first big storyline was her husbands past issues. This season she found herself in hot water as a result of a background check she did on Quad Webb-Lunceford. This situation went from a negative exchange of words to a brawl. And that turned into more allegations against her hubby. We can all take lessons from Lisa Nicole on handling the heat while looking fabulous!

Moving on to Dr. Heavenly Kimes, I checked out her dating app; she really did it. High Five Dr. H, but I can’t help but wonder if you were able to get Mr. Kimes to buy into your new passions. Dr. H, started the series making a stand about serving your man above all else. Now, two seasons in, he’s complaining and she’s shutting him down, saying it’s her time to be the priority. I suspect she’s realizing that it’s two people in a marriage with evolving needs. Now that she’s building a brand around attracting love and keeping love, she must live it.

For her part, Toya Bush-Harris is growing tired of being a stay at home mom. She wants another purpose and more money. Some have said, her and her hubby live above their means. We’ve seen the tension and now she wants to contribute to the bottom line. The only problem is that she’s trying to work in her husband’s business and he’s not liking it. He calls her the starter who never finishes anything. Ouch! Plus, she wants him to lose some weight and he’s not as committed. I think these two will work it out.

I can’t overlook the mystery man who claims a past relationship with Dr. Darren. His name is Damen Wayne. In coming weeks, we will see how this unfolds.

The Reunion is on Fire at The Real Housewives of New York. Talk about complicated….Luann de lesseps is truly being a Countess – her past royal title. She’s Queen of Mean and judgmental to boot. When it comes to her men, she likes them young and hot. For a slew of reasons, she’s giving Carole Radziwill a hard time; she wants her to stop dating the help and her niece’s ex immediately. She’s tweeting and blogging about it endlessly. My thought? Move on and focus on your own life.

On the man front, my girl Bethenny Frankel is still pissed at her soon to be ex-husband. It’s got her all screwed up and based on her remarks at the reunion, it may never end. I think she’s holding out and willing to spend all her money on lawyers to make him unhappy. Ugh!

The biggest news is poor Kristen Taekman. Her hubby has an Ashley Madison account. This means he’s a cheater and I can’t say I’m surprised. Last season, he treated her like crap. He denied it until proof came out. He’s known as Mr. Big NYC on the site. He’s had numerous transactions and there are pictures, allegedly. Wow! I have a feeling Ramona is loving this! Now, she’s not the only housewife on the show humiliated by a cheating scandal. Luann is part of that club as well, but it was long ago. Kristen, I’m praying for you girl.

Another person loving this… Dorinda, who goes from nice to mean in seconds. She was all over Kristen at the reunion about judging her boyfriend. I wonder what she’s saying now. One more thing, Ramona, is looking amazing these days and admitted to the breast augmentation. Women do interesting things post-divorce.


 The Real Housewives of the OC – Love is Complicated

 Vicki Gulvanson still claims her now ex, Brooks, is really sick. We wonder if this is true since she left him, which seems cruel even for her. Only time will tell.

Shannon Beador is getting hate messages like crazy all over social media. I think viewers are fed up with the complaining. Yes, the cheating by her husband was wrong, but Shannon complains every single minute about every single thing. I think this was a wake up call to her to get it together.
