Funny, there was a couple on the first season of Real Housewives of Atlanta named DeShawn and Eric. I actually think they may have been the truly wealthiest couple ever on any Housewives shows, as he played in the NBA for 13 or 14 years. Anyway, she didn't get asked back for the 2nd season because she was "boring" - was nice to everyone, never got in any fights, and he was quiet and sweet. But a year later they got divorced b/c he was having an affair and ended up getting his mistress pregnant. I bet Bravo hates they didn't get that on film! You can't tell with the quiet ones...

NP No way about Eric and Deshawn! Wow. I remember them. They were college sweethearts, she was with him when they were poor. She would shoot baskets in their backyard with him. I hope she cleaned up in the divorce if that's what he did. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] How would YOU react if your brother came over to spend the day with your 11-year-old DS (as he had done many times before), and when they came back, DS's face was bruised and had some cuts on it, and he excitedly told you that your brother had taken him to a boxing gym, and that he really wanted to join the gym and start training as a boxer? 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I would say absolutely awesome! I would be so proud my son was well on the way to becoming a man. then I would take him into the bathroom and put bacitracin on his cuts and prepare my note to the school nurse about where the bruises come from so we weren't charged with abuse or anything. What a positive thing to happen between a nephew and his uncle. [ Reply | More ]

I don't think I would be upset, probably happy my child found something they enjoyed - boxing is not my thing and I don't think I could watch my child in an actual fight - but the sparing and physical training i think would be great [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Ran into a mom 'friend' today. She didn't return a phone call a while back, I didn't notice for a while. This woman poured her sobbing heart out to me for weeks/months until her divorce went through. I was a good friend, and I don't resent being there for her. Was never really sure I wanted to be friends with her, but it's lonely in NY Metro burbs, so I gave it a shot. Like I said, I didn't notice for a while that hadn't called me back. Technically, I guess I should be offended. But I'm not really. Anyway, it was a bit awkward today. She asked a lot about how we're doing, etc, like she cared. Mention was made of getting together. I'm not expecting a phone call. She's not very fun, but she is nice. I'm so ambivalent about this friendship, if you can call it that. I think she felt guilty about not calling me and I wanted to say 'you know what? it's no big deal!' I'm not lonely in the burbs any more, I'm happy to say. But I don't know what I should do, if anything? Just let this one fade? Oh, I should also mention that I revealed a really dark and hurtful part of my past to her. The phone call stopped shortly after that. I have wondered if that had something to do with it. Or is she just a narcissist who can't handle not being the only one who has suffered serious emotional trauma? Anyone ever experienced anything like this? What did you do? Sorry so long, need to vent! 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

OP: Yeah, I'm thinking that too. And I have a funny feeling I actually am going to forget I even saw her. It's just weird to have shared all this stuff with each other and then bump into her later. Awkward. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Are there any good books/videos or some useful tool to teach young (preschool aged) DCs about safety issues (strangers/opening doors etc)? Whenever appropriate I try and teach this but not sure how effective I am. 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

It's interesting, Caillou (which means pebble or little stone in French) was actually a French cartoon. It's waaaay less irritating in French, although he still is somewhat annoying. Don't know who the fuck worked on the English version, but I will not let me daughter watch that shit. [ Reply | More ]
