Ah, but no Jo and Slade! Is that a good thing, or a bad thing? It doesn't surprise me in the least, though, that Jo has her eye on her own show.

It will be interesting to see how the death of the girls' father (Lou, the guy with the water company) plays out if at all on the show.

I'm not sure how I feel about Jo not being back on the show; she was a person I loved to hate.

I wonder how fake Lauri will look now and if she's learned how to be a mother to her poor son. I feel bad for the kid, all the kids on the show really.

A great trainwreck that I am glad is back on!

Isn't the board powered by Bravo now? I would think they wouldn't be off limits, but what the Hell do I know???

The dad died? First I've heard that--anyone know what happened?

He was a tool, but he was the kid's father...I mean, seriously--poor kids.

He died in April?!?! I had no idea


Okay, I'm sorry for his children that they lost their dad, but (of course there is a "but" - this is TWoP) from the article:

He is survived by his wife, Netdao, and seven children: Louis L., Louis D., Jason, Aleshia, Ashley, Meagan and Lindsey

He has two sons named Louis?? Making the middle name different really isn't enough...

I actually found myself driving in my car wondering about the relationships of two of the daughters. The one with the denim bloomers, the chunky ex-bunny's daughter...I want to say Kara?

Then the control-freak's daughter, Brigitte or Brianne or whatever who had her date interrupted.

Jo filled me with suge a blind rage I don't know if I will miss her or not. Though I do miss seeing all the assy things Colton does.

In a sense I'm sort of bummed that there won't be any Jo/Slade, but at the same time, if they're broken up & he's managing her "singing" career, well...I'm already subjected to one Heidi & Spencer on my tv & I sure as heck don't need another!

Talk about delusional for Slade and Jo. If Jo thinks she has any musical talent, she needs her head examined.

I must admit that the Real Housewives is a guilty pleasure.

I wonder if the baseball player husband will be in the show anymore. Can't remember his name, but he wasn't too chummy with his wife, family or life in general.

I remember the old thread, and it got shut down because people kept talking about Lauri and Josh, so hopefully we can keep the new one if we keep the commenting on them to a minimum.

I kind of can't wait for this train wreck to come back. I actually really liked Tammy. I still miss Kimberly, though.

And I was wondering if Lauri ever actually wound up marrying George. They had been talking about getting married early summer 2007, which has already come and gone, so do we know if the wedding has taken place? I never saw anything about it.

According to the last poster on this blog at the OC Register, Lauri and George got married on September 8, 2007 at his home. The blogger also mentioned that it will be shown this season - whereas, George's youngest children will not. I, for one, am glad that the kids will not be involved in this show.

I was really excited to see this show coming back and even more excited to see no Jo/Slade. Even though they were the most fun to make fun of.

And now I'm REALLY excited to see this show back here- hopefully it will be up for a while.

Yay! I have somewhere to post my Housewives sighting. We saw Lauri and George at the Ivy hotel in San Diego (the new hotspot here) this past weekend. Lauri is very tall and George is much better looking and younger looking in person.

Oh, I agree this show is a guilty pleasure.
I'm fairly new to the TWoP forum. So, that I don't screw up here, could a moderator please remind us what shut this down last time. I don't want to be the poster that puts us in time out.

I can't believe Lou was only 67. He looked rough. I thought he was a decade older than that.

No Slade and Jo -- sniff -- I'm choking back the tears! I got a good, hard belly laugh that she can't be on again because of her blossoming musical career. Oh yeah, everyone wants to hear "Oooooooh the way I feeeeeeel". BTW, that has to be sung as off-key as possible to mimic Jo's wonderful voice.

I was hoping we'd finally see Slade coming out as a gay man and walking around in curlers and Jo's stinky pinky bunny slippers. I wonder if he finally found a job and finally shaved his face (instead of or in addition to his legs -- and the rest of his body).

We saw Lauri and George at the Ivy hotel


Were you horrifed and scarred for life looking at Lauri's face/mask?

I can't believe Lou was only 67.


Yeah, I can believe Lou was well into his 70's.

Does anyone know if Tammy is gonna be back? I'd really miss the daughters -- porno girl and tattoo chick. Oh and of course Duff. What would this show be without Duff?

To be honest, I tried to look, but couldn't really get a good look in, because she had massively large sunglasses on her face and I was also trying not to be too obvious. The rest of her looked surprisingly pretty though. I could definitely see why someone like George would be attracted to her. I always find that people look better in real life than they do on the screen. For example, having sat next to Courtney Cox in a restaurant once, I was surprised at just how gorgeous she really is. I have also sat next to Cameron Diaz, whose skin looked better in real life than it does in magazines.

Woohoo!!! This has really made my day. I wonder if George asked Lauri to sign a prenup? I'm guessing that since she's his third wife, and they married in California, he's not going to be stupid enough not to have an agreement of some kind.

But then, maybe he is.

I'm not a moderator, and I don't know for sure, but the last thread got deep into the legal wranglings of George, Lauri, and their children. There were people posting who were obviously well-acquainted with the custody battles and other things going on in their lives, and apparently some attorneys asked that the thread be shut down.

If you read some of the comments following this piece from the OC Register, you can get an idea of some of the stuff that went on in the thread:

In the clips from the third season shown on Bravo, it looked like Lauri's oldest daughter had lost weight. Or I got her confused with one of George's kids. Tammy's younger daughter needed to cool it with the orange makeup and ratted hair. She was starting to look like a blonde oompa loompa.

This article seems to say that Jo was replaced because Slade and her fucked with Bravo.

I think I will actually miss the Slade and Jo drama. Too bad. I think every other wifey is back right? I feel kind of bad about myself that I cannot wait for this to start.

I remember when this board got shut down - I went over to Bravo and it was PAINFUL. It was so heavily moderated that you could post and then it would be "looked over" by a moderator who decided if it would get on the board. I think I tried to go to another board that was also shut down. Funny what money and lawyers can do! All the poor reality stars have to deal with people talking smack about them.

Just found this about the housewives thread in the bugs/feedback area...

I believe that the sticky is gone because the topic is okay now (we had the same issue with another thread, which is open again now).


So it looks like this place is a go for now!

I'm actually shocked to see that this thread is here. I thought it was cowardly to shut it down completely -- especially given that this is owned by Bravo -- but maybe we didn't get the whole story of what really happened. I guess the legal issues that Mr. Man Boobs and Rocky Dennis were so concerned about are no longer an issue anymore? I wonder if the old gang that drifted over to that other site will come back over here. I assume Frank will continue his column trashing them in the OC Register. I remember Jeanna cattily trashing the OC Register on one ep -- oh, she must really hate him.

I'm really wondering about Josh. Anyone know what became of him? Did he go into the armed forces? I bet not. It was painful to watch his story. Ashley was a pig and I'm sure still is. And Lauri -- blech! Are we going to see Miss Piggy whine about a family van again?
