    Farrah is in contention for the ugliest fake crying face EVER. Since she is clearly fake crying (and not good at it) she should at least do our oculars a favor and pretty that cry up as much as humanely possible. Or really go for the gusto and add some horsey noises.

    I don’t care who is on this show or for that reason. This is the most trash-tastic show on TV right now and I am going to enjoy every moment of the manufactured famewhore dramatica! These people are dead serious which makes it all the funnier in my mind. I love it.

    Ahh train wreck TV is back! Kelsey is now know to me a Klinger (Stage 5). There’s a whole lotta despiration and Webster’s dictionary hidden under that Mr. T yellow faux hawk. Her command (or lack thereof) of the English language is the only entertaining thing about her.

    Never have watched a Real Housewife episode ever so other than the publicized “beating” and the suicide no clue who Taylor is. However her fiance seems scarred shitless of her so maybe now she has taken to handing out the beatings? Whose watching her kid?

    Major crush on both the lesbians! They seem legit and really want to make things better and will be my sanity port in the shitstorm of a season!

    Then there’s fame whore Farrah who can also lay claim to the worst cry-face ever. She will go on a couple’s show solo just for screen time and that’s the least of her crimes. Whose watching her kid? In the season previews her “boyfriend/employee” shows up (kicking and screaming) at some point and bares an uncanny resemblance to Steve from American Dad – except not as hot.

    Also when did taking pink Play-Doh and rolling it into tubes and super gluing around your mouth become attractive? Missed that memo…Mr. Bill look out Ooooh Nooooo

    Finally got to watch this. I’m not sure why Taylor needs an assistant. I didn’t realuze she was so busy in Vail. Imagine….

    8 am – Wake Taylor and Upper Lip
    10 am – dress Taylor and Upper Lip
    12 pm – starve Taylor, feed Upper Lip, open bottle of wine
    1 pm – find out where John is hanging around, open bottle of wine
    3 pm – remind Taylor Kennedy needs to be fed and watered, open bottle of wine, take Kennedy and Upper Lip to park
    5 pm – check that suitcase is empty, open bottle of wine

    Thanks for the recap!

    Hell you could try and sue her, but she’d probably just send you a complimentary rubber mold of her back door entrance, since that’s apparently what she’s marketing next.

    That Farrah ditz put me off porn. Can I sue her for this? That’s got to be worth millions in emotional trauma right there.

  • Aunt Dorsey

    jezebel.com is outing Backdoor Farrah’s ploy to get on Couple Therapy with her rent-a-boyfriends. Apparently this is the second year, since Carson Underwood claims she was supposed to appear on the previous season with him.

    This year’s rent-a-boyfriend, Brian Dawe, claims he got cold feet, or caught some moral scruples or something, and e-mailed the producers saying that it was a sham and that he couldn’t go through with it. He claims the producers then offered to pay him double to appear.

  • rachelkashmir

    Yeah, I wonder if they’re going to touch on the fact that Taylor’s current sucker is still married and that’s probably why they aren’t married yet. I hate how she’s still beating that domestic violence drum when there is no conclusive evidence that that Russell (RIP) ever put his hands on her.

    Ferrah’s upper lip offends me.

  • Holyterror

    Farrah looks so OLD — like a 40 year old. Way too much makeup, and her clothes are matronly, too.

  • stinkyhousewives

    How many more times is Shana (that awful Taylor’s real name) going to milk the suicide of her husband? She is horrible.

    You know, I never watch Sister Wives but I never miss you recaps. So much fun! Now here’s another show I can’t bear to watch but I am really looking forward to your recaps.

    Oh Farrah. There has never been a more spoiled or delusional person on TV. Ever. Yes dear, your hard core anal sex movie wasn’t porn. Not at all. It was an art piece. And a good business opportunity! Her missing boyfriend probably got cold feet when he realized he was going to be on TV for all the world to see that he’s with little anal annie. Weirdly, her entire Teen Mom seasons are more embarrassing for her than anything she could possibly do in porn. Petulant bitchy entitled airhead doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface. I still think incest would explain a lot of Farrah’s behavioral problems and power shift in her family, and the porn movie adds to that opinion frankly. Whatever her trauma, she is insufferable.

    And she is joined by nasty grifter Taylor of the drunken crying binges and asswipe father of the decade Jon Gosselin. It’s like a famewhore convention. I’m sure there’ll be some serious therapy going on this season. Sure there will.

    I can’t believe people get paid to produce and air this stuff. But I do love to read the recaps. So there’s that. Thanks for covering it for us.
