Vicki Gunvalson on Betrayal, Love, Loss & Coming Back From Scandal

Vicki Gunvalson on Betrayal, Love, Loss & Coming Back From Scandal | Daring Fun & Pop Culture Goodness | Scoop.it

Liar liar pants on fire!

GwynethJones's insight:

I really just wish @vgunvalson would admit that she was looking to keep herself viable & needed a storyline and colluded with Brooks to make him seem more sympathetic to the ladies and it totally backfired!

 

She's such a hypocrite & MEAN to the production staff!

 

All that crap she gave Gretchen about Slad and yet, Brooks was worse!

 

All that crap she gave Tamara about divorce until it was HER reality.

 

All those lies she DID TELL to Support Brooks

She's such a savvy business woman and yet she doesn't know how to Google? Her friends were skeptical and protective did she thank them or scream at them - esp. when they were RIGHT all along! GAH!

 

And how about how she treated her "best friend" her daughter when her excellent BS bell was ringing? [smh]

I love/hate this woman.

Of course I'll watch RHOC, I've been with them from the very first!

My comment to the author of the article (& book too for that matter!)

 

Dear Ryan, Thank you for this!  I've paused episode 9 and went Googling for an answer and Your well written treatise....this....came up. I threw caution to the wind, overlooking spoilers to find my answer.

My question: Is Quentin always and continually as aggravatingly annoying in the book as he is sometimes on the show?

Like Penny, (who is BTW amazingly bada$$!)

I want to knife him. Virgo blade or shiv, doesn't matter. At times I would even use a sharpened toothbrush for his whiny, unwashed hair dithering and hesitating when he should just OWN IT!

Does that drive you as cray cray in the books or do you learn to still love & accept him as we (assumption) did the angsty moody annoyingly oblivious thick-headed Harry Potter even during and after The Order of the Phoenix?

IE: Should I download

these books already!!??


Because right now I should be blogging, doing laundry, sorting my recyclables, I should have eaten breakfast, or lunch, or working on my book, but instead I'm power draining my DVR of this AMAZING show!


Thanks so much & Cheers!

Demi Lovato slams Taylor Swift for silently donating $250k to Kesha

Demi Lovato slams Taylor Swift for silently donating $250k to Kesha | Daring Fun & Pop Culture Goodness | Scoop.it
As Taylor Swift herself once said, 'there's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women.' But according to Demi Lovato, you have to be vocal about it too.

Can we please stop trying to make Disney @ddlovato a thing?

Talk about tea and shade - to turn the generous donation to help Kesha into a blast on @taylorswift13 is pitiful!


Sadly, Kesha is near broke because her super creepy manager hasn't paid her royalties AND he also (allegedly) raped her.

EXCLUSIVE: Inside The Scandalous Conflict Between #RHOBH New Housewife Kathryn Edwards, Kyle Richards and Faye Resnick | Daring Fun & Pop Culture Goodness | Scoop.it
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will have a new look this season, the most refreshing of which will be the absence of what’s-her-name Glanville.  When one dirty door mercifully closes, a window of interesting possibility opens, and this time it might just be the new cast addition of Kathryn Eickstaedt Edwards. The word on […]

Good show, @_KathrynEdwards But I think

The Morally Corrupt @fayeresnick1 got off easy because she silently stonewalled you. Bummer!


I wish you had pressed farther or had taken with you Xeroxes of the relevant chapters or articles (you merely have to Google to find them,  like this one) I wonder if you had had the ammunition you needed handy to call her out on her BS - if she would have been forced to explain her capitalizing and profiting on the death her BFF and slandering your EX. Bad, bad, business indeed!


But you & Erica Jayne have been a nice addition to one of my favorite non-guilty pleasure!

You enjoyed the Crawleys when they were the hot new thing, then you drifted. But with end times approaching, here’s a crash course in Downtonology.
GwynethJones's insight:

I admit it, I was one of those who lapsed with this show.

I got too emotional when we lost Matthew, when Bates went to jail, I came back after he got out and BAM! Poor Anna get's ravished!? GAH! Bye! I turned back to the zombies. Then, I had to distance myself and remember - these are fictional characters. Went back & binged on Amazon and I'm back in love with it and will miss it greatly.

Syfy graduates ‘Harry Potter’ in fantasy series ‘The Magicians’

Syfy graduates ‘Harry Potter’ in fantasy series ‘The Magicians’ | Daring Fun & Pop Culture Goodness | Scoop.it
If you're looking to catch a Quidditch match, then you're in the wrong place.
GwynethJones's insight:

This series is great for those HPF's (Harry Potter Fans) who miss Howarts and wish the books continued into graduate school with an (Order of the Phoenix) Angsty horny Harry (Erg Quentin)  and a clumsy but brilliant blonde Hermione mixed with Bella Swan (Alice) and a bunch of pan-sexual drug taking, smoking, & boozy amusing side characters. OK, I'm still watching. 


Much like Torchwood was an edgier sexier Doctor Who, the Magicians has just enough originality to keep my interest. (So far)
