I shout at the TV and they all seem like back stabbing bitches...but I'm hooked!

she gets to keep it until she remarries or he remarries. I thought The Count was dating an Ethiopian Princess, which peed off her snootiness.

Loved Mario's 'Countless' dig at Luanne.

Here you go, it has all 5 series.
Safe website, I watch all my series there as they're updated from the US and UK immediately although probably not legal blush

How can I find time to watch series as I'm always on MN? Actually I can multi task...I'm a woman.

I kind of liked Simon and is very skinny wife who somehow had a modelling contract. They genuinely were into each other and had kind hearts. They also werent as uptight as the rest.

I never got Bethanny, loved her at first but then when she left and married that bloke which was clearly a stunt to get a show out of it/get pregnant, I went right off her. I cant watch her new show.

I loved Jill. Remind me again why she fell out with Bethanny? was it to do with her husband having cancer?

I would love to find out what has happened to their gorgeous, unaffected daughters? Are they in college and not selling out to tv, I wonder?

I have to say, they strike me as been workers. Unlike some of the other housewives.

Beverley Hills is still my favourite, Im gasping for it to come back.

Hmm... Simon and Alex were very weird; their bizarre demand that their very small children spoke French in their daily lives made me laugh (considering none of them was French!)

I love Bethenny, she's very neurotic but her one-liners are hysterical

Snowboard instructor: “Just grab the tip.”
Bethenny: “Listen, I’m a big fan of grabbing the tip.”

"Gummi bears don’t come from the vine. Those aren’t the bears you see in the Bronx Zoo.

Bethenny: I want it in writing, like if I croak how long do you have to mourn and be miserable and walk around wearing all black and crying with like black holes and cavities around your eyeballs before
Jason: How long would you want me to do that?
Bethenny: Look at you I'm already dead and you're so excited. You're already dating some blonde young fuckin' loser who's 23 years old in a pink cardigan.

dont forget its half scripted!!! It was the way she kept dropping hints about how terrible her past was as if she'd had the worst upbrining in the world. It got on my nerves when she had clearly had a privaleged upbringing compared to anything we know. And the way the nanny was shoved on a single bed in the tiny nursery and how she was one minute saying how she was family and the next she's nowhere to be seen. Brilliant figure though.

oh, she is something else. Very attractive, though. She soon got a new fella, didnt she? I love how the Americans date, compared to us. And, she gets to show off her French. Did I not read that her daughter out of all of them has been expelled for taking drugs?

That link above doesnt work for me, the episodes are all there but it wont allow me to download which is probably a good thing

I am beside myself waiting for Beverley Hills, I cant find it anywhere.

TobyLerone Wed 07-Nov-12 20:38:59

OMG LuAnn's song. DD and I almost caused ourselves to have a hernia with the lulz.

there is a follow up song - Chic C'est La vie. Hilarious.

I couldnt download either lighthouse I'll just have to wait...

PoppyAmex Portugal Wed 07-Nov-12 20:53:29

You can't really download, just stream (watch).

Just choose one of the links with lots of stars and select watch.

TobyLerone Wed 07-Nov-12 20:57:24

I've heard Chic C'est La Vie. The first series of RHNYC I saw was series 4, annoyingly. Then I saw 1, 2, and am watching 3 now.

The pretentiousness of Simon and Alex boasting about their sons ability to speak French yet whenever they asked them to speak it, the kids refused...

And they boasted about being fluent themselves but when they took the boys to a French owned cafe for brunch and spoke to the waiting staff (strangers) they addressed them with the informal 'Tu' instead of 'Vous' which you just do not do. Instantly showed them up to be less than conversant in French.

Apparently Luanne was very 'free' during her marriage regarding other men....

TobyLerone Wed 07-Nov-12 21:15:00

I thought they seemed to be friendly with the staff in the French café, so it seemed ok that they used 'tu'. Also, my DC speak French and also refuse whenever anyone asks them to do it.

Simon and Alex are still pretentious, though grin

PoppyAmex Portugal Wed 07-Nov-12 21:17:23

I read that too mignonette

The guy caught doing the walk of shame out of her room in this last series is a very attractive Frenchman, dressed as Johnny Depp in "Pirates of the Caribbean" grin

It's not terribly polite to refer to staff as 'Tu' when speaking on behalf of young children. Also when ordering 'Vous' is better because it shows respect for the professional role of Garcon which the French see as having a much higher status than it does in some other countries.

NotMostPeople Wed 07-Nov-12 21:22:24

I'm so addicted I'm watching the series on tv at the moment even though I've seen it before. Can't wait to get to the new episodes.

PoppyAmex Portugal Wed 07-Nov-12 21:27:01

You wouldn't address someone you don't actually know as "Tu", would you?

Unless you were speaking to a child and even then my mother would use "Vous". Then again, she refers to dogs as "Vous" too grin

TobyLerone Wed 07-Nov-12 21:31:49

Meh. They seemed to know them IMO. I have friends who run cafés. Were they French I would call them 'tu'.

Are you 'doing a LuAnn' on me, mignonette? wink

Littlemisspoorly Wed 07-Nov-12 21:39:13

I can't believe you just spoke to mig like that! stirring it like they do in HMNYC I think she aught to know what you said and I'm the best peron to tell her!! grin

Littlemisspoorly Wed 07-Nov-12 21:40:10

*person- nothing to do with Eva (peron) !

mignonette Wed 07-Nov-12 21:41:33

I'm doing a Ramona. grin.......Where's my Pino, darling? You know I have to have my Pino wine......
