Real Housewives, Running, Top Chef premiere and other things
So......I watched the third part of the RHONY Reunion. What did everyone think?? I still believe that Kelly is crazy and needs to be removed from the show. I'm not a fan of letting someone who is mentally unstable be on TV. It's not entertainment, it's just sad. Especially upon learning that Kelly was asked to leave and escorted away by a producer of the show!!! I hope Bravo does the right thing.
I was shocked to hear Jill say she may not come back next season. But was it real, or a publicity thing? Her reason (Alex McCord "hating" her) was lame. I'm a little jaded after this season. Bethenny already mentioned on Watch What Happens Live last week that she may not be back. But, from how she answered it last week, my guess is that she's waiting to see if Kelly's coming back. I hope both Jill and Bethenny come back. Like I said before, I want the original five ladies AND Sonja Morgan. That's it.
I loved Bethenny's Getting Married? tonight. And I loved loved loved Jason's parents. It's nice to watch a show that for the most part I laugh throughout, although there are some dark parts when she's in therapy. But it is more of an uplifting show rather than women battling each other.....which, to be honest, can get tiresome!
I was excited that Kathy Griffin was in the house tonight of WWHL. She is hilarious and I love Kathy Griffin: My Life On The D List. Did anyone see the Law and Order: SVU episode that Kathy was on playing Bab's a while back? What did you think? I did and loved it!! It's one of my favorite "regular" shows on TV.
Is anyone besides me a total fan of Top Chef? I didn't start watching until season 3 when my brother told me about it, but instantly fell in love!! I can't believe it's season 7!! Top Chef and Amazing Race are the two shows that I never miss an episode. If you watch, do you have a favorite so far? What do you think about Angelo (is that his name) who won the quickfire and the elimination challenge?? A little arrogant, or what?? We'll have to wait and see, but an FYI to him: the last couple of seasons the person who wins the first episodes challenges DOESN'T win the finale. Just a thought.............
So, I don't think I mentioned on Tuesday that I ran. Lately running and I haven't been getting along. I don't know why. I was looking forward to it all day. But when I got to the park and started running, I honestly felt like I was wearing a weighted vest the whole time. I think I only ran 2 miles and it was torturous!! By the end I could barely walk......
Later on I realized that I had a blister on each food in the exact same place: on the inside above the arch. I can honestly say that I've never gotten a blister from running or walking before and don't know what happened. On top of that I really didn't stretch and my calves and hips got very tight to where it was difficult to move around and it hurt to sit too long. Let's just say I was a mess Tuesday night.
Well, today, I still have the blisters but wanted to get outside and exercise so I thought I would just walk for 3 miles and that would be okay. Especially since the weather was perfect for walking or running! So I got to the park and walked for a mile and felt good so I decided to run a little bit to see how it felt. I ran part of the second mile and it felt okay. But I just walked the rest of the second mile because I didn't want to chance it. The third mile I ended up running most of it but towards the end I felt the blisters above the arches and they were telling me to stop, so I did and walked the last bit back to my car. Overall I felt good and stretched out more tonight. I think I need one of those foam rollers.
So, on top of all that, I went out to my garage earlier tonight and saw some water on the floor. Since it was near the side garage door leading to my backyard I thought it was from there. But when I went and checked there was no water on that part of the patio. My water heater is in my laundry room which backs up to the garage. I think there is a leak. I'm not sure, but that's the only thing I can think of. See, when I was married, that would be his job to take care of it.
Well, luckily, I do not own the duplex I live in, so tomorrow I will call the property mgr to come out and take care of it. After the divorce everyone kept telling me to buy buy buy after we sold our home, but I said no since in California the prices were ridiculously too high!! Good call on my part. I don't have to fix stuff and I don't have to do yard work. (Yard work is included in my rent--YAY!!!).
I finished reading Four Blondes by Candace Bushnell last night. I thought it was eh. The first story was okay but the other three stories were a drag and I couldn't wait for them to be over. I just couldn't figure out the point of those last three stories and, quite frankly, I really didn't care about any of those characters!! I thought it was all just too much darkness. The book felt like that weighted vest I thought I was wearing on Tuesday!!
I read Sex and The City a week or so ago and wasn't as enthralled with it as I am with the series or movies. It was just a bunch of stories one after another, and not nearly as interesting as any of the series episodes. And some just stopped without a point (in my opinion). Also, the book kind of jumped around. I could go on and on, but it makes me tired just thinking about it, so I won't. I read some of the lines they actually put in the series but otherwise, how they came up with the series, and the four friends, from THAT book is beyond me. It is much darker than the series and I didn't really see much resemblance except the title (and those few lines).
I just started to read Trading Up today, again from Candace Bushnell. It is about the first character, Janey, from Four Blondes. Janey's story was the only one I liked from that book, so hopefully I will enjoy this one. So far, not liking Candace Bushnell's writing so much. It's just too dark for me.
After that, I will read Lipstick Jungle. Then I am taking a break from Ms Bushnell and reading some of Sophie Kinsella's books (I've never read but I've heard good things)
I have a long day tomorrow so I am off to bed.........good night!!
