Real Housewives House Tour

Hello dear friends.  I'm back with another Real Housewives tour.  Last week, I posted pictures of three Housewives homes.  This week I am only featuring one housewife because her mansion is so enormous.  It is the gorgeous home of David and one of my favorites, Yolanda. 

We only have a handful of shows left on RHBH.  According to Kyle's instagram, the ladies have already filmed the reunion, and it was positively exhausting.  I'm not surprised.  It takes a lot of energy stabbing "friends" in the back.

Out of all the housewives, I would choose Yolanda to be my friend.  She strikes me as having a big heart and truly wants everyone to get along.  Last week, she put together a scavenger hunt in an effort to create some team building amongst the crazies.  It appeared that  Yo put a lot of time and energy into this little endeavor and the crazies were anything but appreciative.


You would think that Yo asked her buddies to clean toilets at Penn Central.  Between Kim's knees, Lisa V's bunions and the whole milkshake debacle, there was no end to the moaning and groaning.   I haven't heard this much whining since I asked my girls to get dressed up so I could take a picture for a Christmas card.  If you're wondering why you didn't get one, I didn't send one.  Enough said.

This Malibu mansion is magnificent.

Holy guacamole!!!  Now this is what I call a kitchen!

Lynn's Place 

This fridge is so famous, I think it deserves its own tag line.

Remember all the bickering good times around this piano?

David can't even turn around, he is laughing so hard.

Some high-spirited conversations have happened around this table.

I wonder how many pairs of white jeans that Yo owns.

It's no wonder Yo and David are so happy... they have separate bathrooms!

How many hours do you think Yo spends in this room to keep that gorgeous figure of hers.  

Between you and me, I am not a big fan of media rooms.  However, I think this is one is stunning.

By the way, Yo and David are selling their little love nest for a cool 25 mil.  It's time for me to start buying lottery tickets.

Who's your favorite housewife?  
And if you don't watch it, I don't blame you.

Day Trip in Naples with Dude

Hello dear friends.  Hope you are staying warm during this very frigid week!  Today, I have a treat for you.  My buddy, Dude, who is my special correspondent specializing in fashion, star sightings, and scape styling has written a post about one of her favorite places - the Farmers Market in sunny, warm, Naples, Florida.


When I visit Naples Fla, I always make a point of going to the Third Street farmers market. It's  Saturday mornings from 7:30-11:30 (in season).  This is my favorite of all the local farmers's packed and full of great vendors.....

Here's a sampling of the fun things they have to offer.
