I’m An Addict

Hi, I’m Rhonda and I’m an addict. No I’m not a drug addict, but I am a reality tv and food network addict. I’m also addicted to blogging, Facebook, scrapbooking and on-line games. I’m not sure when it all started, but I do know that I’m in over my head. I believe it started with the Food Net Work, Iron Chief to be exact. I than moved to Project Run Way and on to all the Housewives shows. That’s right, Orange County, New York, Atlanta and now New Jersey.

I’m glued to the entire season of Project Run Way and now it Cupcake Wars. Did I leave out Bridezilla? I love then all. Damn Bravo, Lifetime and the Food Network. I’m yours, you own me.

The new season of Project Run Way starts this Thursday and I’ll be there. My favorite season of Project Runway was Season 4. I absolutely loved it. Chris March and Christian Soriano were on Season 4. Chris March was eliminated, Christian Soriano, above, went on to win at Fashion Week. Both were hilarious, Christian was my favorite. Maybe because he was from nearby Annapolis, MD. Maybe it was his catch phrases, Bitches, Hot Mess, I’m gonna die of barfness, Ferosh. If I was a 10 sizes smaller, this Bitch would be a Hot Mess in his Ferosh designs. Oh yes I would.

I’m not sure which of the housewife shows I like best. It would probably be the New York housewives if I had to choose. Why, because I think they’re probably the most real out of all the shows. I like the Atlanta Housewives, but I don’t like the fact that they are some broke ass bitches trying to betray themselves as Divas. I mean really. Now Nene keeps it real. I like Gretchen on OC, but Vicki irritates me at times. I respect the fact that she is a hard working woman with 600 insurance agents in her company. She’s not dependent on her husband’s income, she has paved the road to her own wealth.

I like Alex on the New York Housewives, but I think her husband is as sweet as he can be.  Ramona oh Ramona, you give me the creeps.  It’s the eyes girlfriend, they just freak me out.  I like Jill, but she was just not one of favorites this past season. I think Kelly is just a nut. Can we get a head doctor on the next season for her?

I’ve found a new drug that I use on Sunday nights, Cupcake Wars. You can catch it on the Food Network at 10:00 EST. I can’t bake to save my life, so I admire their creations. The show was summed up nicely, “This ain’t no cake walk, it’s a cupcake war”. 

I know that I need help, just turning off the TV is just not going to work for me.  I think I would literally have to take all of the TVs out of the house.  I also know that’s not going to happen, I just purchased a 37″ flatscreen for the bedroom.  Nothing has worked.  I’ve become a great multi-tasker.  I can watch all of my shows and play on-line games.  Love Plants versus Zombies, Bejeweled, and Cake Mania. 
I have learned to love myself unconditionally over the years.  That’s why I can stand before you proudly and say I’m an Addict.  Are you an addict?  Leave us a comment and tell us what you’re addicted to. 

Wordless Wednesday: Virginia Beach Fireworks

Kathy Griffin Judges Kids Pageant

Imagine this 4, 5 and 6 year old girls looking like miniature adults with make up, tans, big hair and Kathy Griffin in the mix. Kinda scary isn’t it. I watched Kathy Griffin’s show, My Life on the D-List this morning. Kathy and her mother were judging a kiddie beauty pageant. Now I’m not much on children being in beauty pageants, seeing children made up to look like miniature adults is not something that I as a parent condone. I use the words “miniature adults” lightly, hookers would probably describe that scene a little better.
Kathy Griffin was hilarious. During a segment of the show there was a little girl, maybe 6 or 7, with tons of fake hair and getting a spray tan. She proceeded to tell Kathy that “if you can’t tone it tan it” and “beauty is pain”. What experience would a 6 or 7 year old have with toning or experiencing pain in relations to a beauty routine? Bikini or eyebrow waxing, lol. How sad for a little girl to be thinking that way. During another segment, Kathy stated that she was scared shitless of those little bitches, referring to the girls, because she believed they would cut you. Confirming that kiddie pageants were treacherous business, the kids were out to win. She also brought a few of her Emmys to the pageant, afterall getting a trophy was the goal.

It also showed Kathy asking a group of little girls about make-up tips. They clearly didn’t have a clue about make-up, which tells me these girls can’t possibly be making decisions on what to wear or how to wear it, but they did know about “cupcake hands”. Now for you moms who don’t know, cupcake hands is a position on how to hold your hands.

Can someone explain to me how a 1 – 2 year old can be furious competition? There was a mom who believed her daughter at that age was competition. Is this a mother living through her daughter or what? Kathy advised the mother to not have cosmetic surgery on the child anytime soon. The mother responded not before she was 6. Too funny.

This was the first time that I watched Kathy Griffin’s show, it was great for few laughs this morning. I may tune in again.

Perez Hilton – What An Idiot

What an idiot! You’ve heard the controversy with Perez Hilton and the Miley Cyrus photo, right. If you haven’t, Perez Hilton placed a link on his Twitter Account that opened to a photo of Miley Cyrus getting out of a vehicle in an “unlady like fashion”. I watched him on The Joy Behar show tonight trying to explain himself. His explanation, she knew pictures were being taken of her, she should be careful how she exits a car. Hello, she’s 17 you fool.
I’m not a big fan of Miley Cyrus, but I am a mother. People are in an uproar over his attempt to exploit a 17 year old child in this manner.  Rightfully so, I would be furious if someone posted a photo of my minor child on-line with her skirt or dress a little too high because she was struggling to get out of a vehicle.  Perez went on to say he thought the photo was funny and further reinforced her provocative behavior so to speak. I saw the photo, and it appears that she just didn’t think about what she was wearing, her focus was just on getting out the car. The car appeared to be a low, 2 seater.  Have you tried getting out of one?  Hell, I have a difficult time getting out of an SUV.  My skirt probably would have been around my head if I had to get out of a vehicle that low. 
I don’t know of any responsible adult, that would post a photo of a child on-line and pretty much say she asked for it.  She knew she was being photographed.  She’s no longer a child, and it seems people want her to stay a little girl on the Disney channel.  Yes, she’s been photographed in what some would call provocative photos.  In particular, with a sheet wrapped around her, dancing up against an older man at a party and in her underwear.  Lets face it, there’s a new generation out there with a totally different view and manner of dress.  This young lady is growing up and she’ll make plenty of mistakes as we all have and are still doing. We’re just not in the eyes of the camera. 
There is no acceptable explanation for what is suppose to be a grown man who would post a photo of her in that position.  I wonder how he would feel if that was his daughter? We as adults need to remember that children should not be the objects of ridicule for any reason.  It’s funny, we’re suppose to be the adults and should be examples for our children. Perez Hilton made an attempt to show a 17 year old’s ass, but he ended up being the biggest one.

Stop Stealing My Blog Posts

Stop Stealing My Blog Posts! That’s right I’m talking to you. You know who you are. You have plagiarized 58 of my blog posts, and if you think that you’re going to get away with it you’ve come to the wrong blog. I welcome all of my readers/subscribers, but you’re not welcome here. So just go away, so that I don’t have to kick your ass again.


For those who aren’t up on what’s going on, I found my blog posts on Mother Love Baby when I was Googling a post. The site is registered under:


Deyan Radnev
Vasil Levski 22, vh. V
Lyaskovec, Veliko Turnovo 5140
Bulgaria

Lets see if they steal this one. Mother Love Baby stole my posts and used my blog content on a forum relating to mothering, babies and love. They even stole a blog post with a picture of my grandson in it. How low can you go?  Are they a mother? I don’t know, but if this person or the person associated with stealing my blog posts is a mother she is not setting a good example for her forum members. Also, how do you set morals, values and standards for your children when you’re stealing from another person and turning their hard work into your own?  I would venture to say they’re stealing in their community too.

If you can’t come up with your own blog content, how can you lead a forum/community?  What a joke. To say that I’m pissed about my posts being stolen is an understatement. Blog plagiarizing is a violation. Being the bitch that I am when violated, I took action and reported the Blog Scraper to their host. Oh yes I did. They investigated Mother Love Baby and shut the site down. Rightfully so I may add.

To The Blog Scraper – If you admired my posts and wanted to use my content, you should have taken the proper steps and contacted me. You obviously aren’t familiar with blog etiquette, but that’s how we roll in the blogosphere. With permission and a link back to my site I may have allowed you to use a few posts. Since you’re just a low life, you just lifted and walked away with 58 and counting posts.

Since you had no respect for me, I have none for you. You chose to steal my blog content, and I chose to make you disappear. Be Gone! If you steal my posts again, I’m make you disappear again. I’m watching you, and I’m sure many other bloggers are watching you now as well.
What do you think about my posts being stolen? Have you been violated in this manner? What steps did you take? Leave us a comment.

A Mother Loves No Matter What

I’m sure each of you have been following Tiger Woods story. I watched his apology last night, and my reaction was dang another man apologizing for their cheating ass ways. I’ve lost count of the number of men that I’ve watched on TV apologizing for straying. Seriously people, what’s up ?

Several things crossed my mind while watching his apology. First, I was so glad his wife was not standing beside him. Secondly, I noticed his mother sitting front and center. My first reaction was she’s an attractive and classy woman. Most importantly, she’s a mother standing by her son. I applaud her for demonstrating her love no matter how bad her son behaved. That’s what we do as mothers isn’t it? No matter what our role never changes.


As far as Tiger, I’m sure he regrets his actions more than he could express through words yesterday. Watching him reminded me of one of my favorite shows, Cheaters. You’re always sorry when you get caught. In my opinion, that’s what money and power can do to you if you’re not grounded. Hopefully, he will put his life into perspective and get his priorities straight.


For the women who lowered themselves into being his mistress you think you deserve an apology. For what may I ask? You knew you were sleeping with another woman’s husband, why in the hell should anyone apologize to you. Tramps! Yes, I called you a tramp and I have few other adjectives for you. What did you really get out of this? The title slut, mistress, hole, and a few moments of fame while you discussed your affair? If you truly understood the meaning of marriage and family, you wouldn’ have allowed yourself to sleep with him. You must be proud of yourself. My advice is to set some standards and get your own man. Learn how to keep your legs closed to another woman’s husband and you won’t find yourself in an unwanted spotlight.

To his wife Elin I wouldn’t want to be in your shoes, but you’re holding the trump card girlfriend and you get the last laugh. I would suggest that you take Ivanka Trump’s advice, hell don’t get mad get even.

Is This The Easter Bunny?

Is this the Easter Bunny?  One thing for sure, it’s the largest rabbit that I’ve ever seen, lol. This bunny’s name is Ralph and he’s 18 months old. Ralph weighs a whooping 42 pounds and he’s 4 feet long. He has earned the title as the Largest Bunny In The World. Congratulations Ralph! This little rascal or should I say large rascal can found and cuddled in the UK if you’re ever in that vicinity. The owner is Pauline Grant. Pauline stated that feeding Ralph has become quite expensive, and she relies on others to help foot his food bill.
Ralph’s mother and father were whoopers too. Ralph’s mother Amy held the record as the World’s Largest Bunny.  Ralph’s father Roberto weighed in at 35 pounds. Ralph’s mother died last May unexpectly of a heart attack after a flight. Pauline said she purchased Ralph for her grandchildren, but she had no idea he would grow this large.

                               Ralph’s Mother AmyRalph’s favorite foods are biscuits, apples, carrots, cabbage, sweet corn, toast, and large bowls of rabbit food. Looks like Ralph has been dining on some mashed potatoes, gravy and buttered biscuits to me, lol.  His breakfast usually consists of a head of lettuce, 2 apples and a large bowl of rabbit food.  He munches on carrots and apples for lunch. 

He’s adorable, but if I saw a rabbit this size I would run like hell. Can you imagine seeing this rabbit in your back yard nibbling.  Seriously what would you do?

Have A Heart – Give The Goods To Charity

The economy is brutal. Jobs are scarce and many families are enduring hard times. Mothers are struggling to cloth and feed their children. Some retail giants are still making millions or billions annually in spite of the economy, but do you think they’re sharing the wealth? I’m not talking about these giants writing checks to us common folks or paying our bills, but simply assisting in other ways. For example, helping a school or church by donating coats, gloves or shoes and hats during the winter. Rather than donate unsold items to charity or families that

are struggling, retail giants like Wal Mart and H & M trash their unsold merchandise. Yes, you read the sentence correctly they literally trash their merchandise. They put holes in the items, cut off the sleeves etc., place them in large trash bags and into the dumpster they go. They don’t want the items to be used. When I read this shocking story, I was in disbelief. I thought retail giants placed their items on Clearance and just marked them down until they sold.

That shows how little I know. A graduate student by the name of Cynthia Magnus found trashed merchandise outside the back entrance of H&M in New York City. She also found Wal-Mart items a few doors down that had been dumped. She exposed both companies for being so heartless when so many people are suffering. They have both agreed to stop trashing their goods and donate it to charity. Bravo, but it’s so sad that it took someone with a heart to slap these corporate giant’s hands and take their scissors before they agreed to allow those in need to benefit from what they perceived to be trash.

I often wonder how people in decision making positions in large corporations get their jobs. I take clothing to the local Goodwill several times of a year. Someone can use it, and the majority of the time they getting quality items that have been well taken care of. Why wouldn’t people who work for million and billion dollar companies think to do the same?

I guess when you make million dollar salaries, you don’t think much about the struggling families across town or around the corner. I guess when you see CNN or your local TV station discussing the economy, it just goes in one ear and out the other. Especially when you’re safe and warm in your mansion with a hefty bank account others aren’t important.

I’m glad to hear that Wal Mart and H & M will now donate their unsold goods to charity. I believe they need to change their hiring process as well. They should require all of their employees to have a heart and to possess compassion for their fellow human beings.
