Yes, a new show tonight!

Who are you to tell me I haven’t been happy, you miserable son of a bitch? Edie, you rock. I love how she’s really not into the reading thing, she’d just rather get hammered. OK, how funny was the chick fight at the restaurant? Please, please, please let her find out it was Susan. Please? That’s going to be an awesome moment.

She’s a lust trigger. I can’t believe Bree was so selfish that she got Peter’s sponsor arrested so they could be together. Yeah, that relationship’s gonna work out.

She’s a slutty, slutty whore. Absolutely. Yes, Susan. Yes, you are.

The house just sold. Start packing. Oh happy day. The Applewhites are moving. That storyline has been a compete waste of time. But tonight we learn that Matthew and Danielle are more crafty than we thought. Who knew? I think Matthew got more than he bargained for out of his little scheme.

Well, I’m going to be exhausted, so I’m probably just going to lay there. That was funny. A lot of what went on at Lynette’s office was funny this week. Poor Tom, he has no idea that Lynette's going to get him fired, again.

My point is, do the right thing and no one gets hurt. Gabby always gets her way. But, tonight? What a heartbreaker.

Poor Gabby! Do you guys think Eva Longoria did a good job in that scene? I think it's impossible to portray even for the best actress the sorrow one might feel at this type of situation.

Definitely very sad, and I do think it was well-acted. A mama's nightmare.

The rest, eh. The Lynette stuff is so out of control, just not that funny. The hardass sponsor annoyed the crap out of me, but mainly bc I hate the portrayal of 12step as so messed up since it does help so many people.

Susan. zzzzzzzzzz

All the housewives were nominated for awards last season, except Eva Longoria. The show's creator said he thought she was a very talented actress but she missed out on award nominations because she didn't have any challenging story lines to play in the first season, and therefore had no opportunity to display her range.

He then promised that he would write some "killer scenes" for Eva in Season 2 in order to ensure she'd get the credit she deserves.

Oh boy having just adopted I almost couldn't take the last scene with Gabby and the cops. Dh just had to hug me and reassure me that ours was over and done with and nothing like that could happen. Eva did an awesome job, especially when she said how she doesn this and that and how thats so not her but she does it anyway. SO heartbreaking...
post #12 of 65
Yep, Eva acted that GREAT. I had tears in my eyes also.

Susan won't be able to walk away with a fight with Edie so easily once Edie finds out it was her.
post #13 of 65
I can't wait til Edie finds out about Susan. She shouldn't have slept with him again...she knows the kind of man he is. And he had said that he just broke up with Edie.

I had tears in my eyes with Gabby too. It was heartbreaking to see her keep looking at Carlos and asking him to do something.

Bree...what's up with her???

Lynette...they shouldn't have been working together anyway but I feel bad for Tom. He's gonna have a hard time.

Looks like next week Andrew will have something up his sleeve to attack Bree again. This show is totally my guilty pleasure!!

I was *bawling* last night! I have a good friend who had to release a baby they were in the process of adopting last year, and all I could think about was her family...
post #15 of 65
I have seen that Gabby sort of thing happen to a couple of real-life friends, but I can't bring myself to feel sorry for Gabby.

I think this will be a bitter hard but good life lesson for her.

I feel bad for that poor baby to have started forming an attachment only to be ripped away.

And then to have a ditzy stripper for a mother.

All the major players on Housewives are shallow and mean spirited. I can't be too sorry for any one of them.

Last night's episode was great!! I wish Gabby could have squeezed out a couple tears.... I did!

and then driven away by police officers who didn't even care that they didn't have a car seat. I know, I know, the emotional component was almost too much for me, so I focused on the logical one. I did cry, whether it was Gaby's performance, or the thought of losing a baby, I don't know, I don't care.

I did cry. I felt so bad for the baby and for Gaby and yes, even for the biological mother.
