Summer 2017: Parental Rewind

I basically make a living talking about motherhood and all the trials and tribulations that come with it. I think we would all admit—it ain’t easy. In retrospect, I have no idea how my mother did it! Modern day parents can take advantage of a lot of handy gadgets unavailable to the generation before us. […]

Real Housewives of Potomac 2: Season Finale

I hope you are getting your fix of fireworks somewhere, because there was nothing to ooh and aah over on the season finale of The Real Housewives of Potomac. Last week, we left the 20854 still reeling from the debut of the overdue, over budget yet underwhelming champagne room.  And the way the ladies grilled […]

DOGtv Might Just be for the Birds

When you write for a living, people are always suggesting topics to cover. I ignore most of them because my life is fodder enough. And because I am inherently lazy and writing about the old homestead takes zero research. But, recently I received a survey about DOGtv that simply could not be ignored. Yes people, […]

Real Housewives of Potomac 2: Episodes 9 & 10 Have Baggage Will Travel

Thinking I was a slacker for skipping last week’s recap? Well, shame on you and bite your tongue. Last week was basically one big buildup for this week’s Bermuda trip, so I was hoarding my snarky summary for a recap two-fer. The Potomac ladies are tired, ya’ll. They are all running from something and hoping […]

Real Housewives of Potomac 2 Episode 8 If You Wannabe

What would happen if we made the RHOP and the Spice Girls twinsies for just one episode? BFFs F-O-R-E-V-E-R that’s what! I mean the most famous Spice Girl song “Wannebe” pretty much sums up the ladies of the 20854 in general. More importantly, a girl has to entertain herself somehow while reviewing a very slow […]

The Real Housewives of Potomac 2: Episode 7 The Bare Naked Ladies

After a week hiatus, this episode got down to the nitty-gritty with the RHOP. The ladies are baring their souls, baring their teeth and barely hanging on. Mo’ Money acts like a real estate mo’gul prattling on about her four houses. But for those who are counting, the new mansion in Potomac makes it five. […]

The Real Housewives of Potomac 2: Episode 6 No Pep in Potomac’s Step

Anyone else out there need a little Red Bull or caffeine IV to stay with the RHOP? Where the hell is all the action? I mean, there is a slew of Kumbaya and hand holding which is downright confusing for all the regulars who are owed a certain level of crazy in return for tuning […]

Real Housewives of Potomac 2 Episode 5: Leave ‘Em Juanting More

All this reality must be getting to me. So I’m just gonna’ come clean and toss out this real question. Is anyone else having trouble following Monique and her urban dictionary dialogue?
