A huge thank you to all the readers that have supported Fishbowl Flakes and made a point to encourage and support me! It means the world to me. Truly.
That being said….
We’re opening Fish Flakes up to our readers, have you caught something in the background of your favorite show that made you rewind to have another look? If you see something out-of-place in the background of your favorite show, or see an obvious snub like this one from Dancing With The Stars send it to us here at TVFishbowl so that we may include it in Fish Flakes, you’ll receive full credit if you wish or you can remain anonymous.
Ding Dong The Witch is Gone!
Sources are saying that Faye Resnick has had enough of the bad publicity and has decided it’s bad for her and bad for her business to continue to be Kyle Richard’s personal pit bull.
She is a successful interior designer, ya’ll!
Faye’s camp sources are saying Faye is shocked at the tweets she has received and can’t believe how emotionally invested people are in the show. Yeah, Faye. Viewers are the problem. It couldn’t be your despicable behavior and desperate attempts for fame, noooooo, it’s the viewers. Isn’t this the New Jersey Franchise go-to line? For those not on Twitter, if you tweet a negative about a NJ Real Housewife or family member, they have a handful of responses, which range from, you’re a fat loser with no life that lives in your mom’s basement to nobody loves you and you have a mental illness. Ya gotta love that New Jersey cast.
Back to Faye, her camp insists producers begged her to return for Season 4 and were vanquished she has refused.
It’s puzzling how those producers have time to work since they have spent so much time begging Adrienne and Faye to stay on the show.
Speaking of Jersey, Caroline Manzo’s book, “Let Me Tell You Something: Life as a Real Housewife, Tough-Love Mother and Street Smart Businesswoman” is out and I hopped on over to Amazon to see how it is fairing. With only 17 reviews total, 10 of those were one star, seems not so good. The review to sum up all the reviews, in fact 98 out of 119 found this review helpful,
If you don’t know anything about the Real Housewives of New Jersey, this probably won’t mean much to you. Caroline Manzo has been on the show for all 4 seasons, and they are getting ready to air Season 5 on which she is also cast. In that time, viewers watched her go from a shrewd, loyal and sometimes funny person and great mom in the early seasons into a nasty bitter woman who has failed at being a sister, a friend and at times, a mother.This book was her chance to redeem herself. In fact, I always thought that was what she was doing. Once this book was announced, she practically went on a P.R. campaign to
undo the damage she had done to her own reputation. I thought this book would be
the original Caroline the viewers fell in love with, but no. Not only is this
still the same bitter woman – brace yourself, because she’s worse. In addition
to bitter and nasty, you can now add pompous braggart to the
She should have taken this opportunity to be humble in the
face of a changing public opinion of herself, but instead, she rubbed in our
faces (and her ex-boyfriend) that she drives Ferrari’s and Bentleys. She rubbed
in our faces that her Facebook friend requests outnumbered the amount allowed by
Facebook. And she says her real reason for writing the book is to “help people.”
She lists all the ways she has helped people – it is positively mind-numbing.
She tells us how people drive by her house all the time, call her, steal her
mail. Are there really that many people who care? Really? Can this woman be so
full of herself? Yes. Apparently she can. Don’t lie to us Caroline. You didn’t
write these 200 pages of nonsense to help anyone but yourself.
sure how she deems herself a successful parent. Only her oldest son finished
college but flunked out of law school. The kids all ended up with careers mommy
and daddy created for them. I can’t imagine hanging on to my parent’s apron
strings like that. How is that teaching them to be independent and tackle the
world? She brags that Chris worked his way up to manage the Brownstone like Al.
Really? In the real-world, no one would make a 22 year old kid the manager of
anything except maybe Arby’s.
If you can get past the puffing and
bragging, you might find yourself back in the 1950′s where she’s telling Lauren,
her daughter, that she has to make her brother’s beds, do the laundry and clean
the refrigerator. Yes, we all know Lauren cleaned the refrigerator, because then
mommy and big Al had to buy her a lapband so she could lose the weight.
funny sidenote: You’ll almost understand the often quoted comment about Caroline
being as Italian as the Olive Garden when you see her soup recipe. The Olive
Garden should be insulted.
It’s a stupid book about nothing. Chatter that
amounts to nothing real or useful, just crap about her life she would have been
better off putting on some video for her family to watch and spare the rest of
The other New Jersey ladies are showing unity and supporting Kathy Wakile’s and those cannoli kits. I just can’t or should I be honest and say I could…dissect everything about this picture to shreds but I won’t
Tsk Tsk Tsk on Bethany Frankel. What are you doing?
Remember the days, Bethenny enjoyed the acclaim of tossing around that $120 million worth, buying her luxurious Tribeca apartment and having the money to remodel and furnish as she pleased? Let’s not forget the gorgeous spread in Traditional Home. It’s now outted, she purchased the apartment in her long time friend and assistant, Molly Hayden’s name. That won’t help the divorce proceedings currently going on between Bethenny and Jason Hoppy but then neither will fighting for custody.
I’m flummoxed at Bethenny’s behavior, quite frankly. Don’t get me wrong, I was always a fan but during her spin-off show, it appeared she enjoyed being unhappy, the ever suffering overcomer. It is as if she revels in that role. Now that the divorce is going, reports leak out she is aggravated Jason won’t move out of the apartment, he is still wearing the ring and to show you how her mind works? She believes it’s a ploy to garner sympathy. Hey Bethenny, he has that…in spades and he got it as soon as everyone read what you were asking for in the divorce.

Marissa Zanuck. Should I begin with the positive or negative?
Positive it is! Marisa has delivered, in her last blog, my absolute favorite quote from a housewife of ALL TIME.
A Housewife must also recognize that she is not perfect and be willing to learn from her mistakes. If 10,000 people are telling you that you are being a bitch, they can’t all be wrong.
Standing O, Marisa! Standing flippin O.
Unfortunately, you have run off the rails since, by tweeting that you know for a FACT that Kyle and Kim’s version of the conversation in Paris is the whole truth.
It’s great that you are showing loyalty to a friend, no one will dispute that. However, you were not there! Therefore, your claim rings hollow. One must wonder why you would stick your neck out with such a ludicrous tweet….
That being said, I do hope you return for Season 4. I truly do and I hope your final blog of the season is truly what you believe, because you did hit a couple of speed bumps but if your blog is your final state of mind? Please, come back!

That’s the biggest flakes in the Fishbowl today…..
