OTHER NEWS: Besides All Dat Housewives Stuff!

September 30, 2012  2:00 pm

There is so much more going on in the world… the REAL world.   Ya know… that world outside of the Housewives realm?  The REAL world, which has some situations going on that are REAL… uh, not that the Housewives aren’t “REAL.”   ‘Cause if you been hearin’ that the Housewives aren’t “REAL,” that is all anti-Housewives propaganda!


AND… if you been hearin’ that all the drama created by these Housewives, in particular the RHONJ, has been booked well in advance to keep the “drama” moving along and to make sure that viewers will watch the RHONJ reunion shows, that is just MORE anti-Housewives sentiment!  WHO or WHAT cable network would be THAT intelligent to set up appearances on various talk shows to pit one Housewife against another to score higher ratings… even though the actual scenarios between these Housewives took place over a year ago?   Could MissAndy be THAT intelligent?  The answer:  NO.  No, MissAndy is not that intelligent.   BUT, that’s another story…

One of the REAL stories in the REAL world is the trial of the California chef who killed his wife, then boiled her for FOUR days… from the LATimes:

The murder trial of a South Bay chef took a bizarre turn this week when he was heard on tape telling detectives he cooked her body.

“I just slowly cooked it, and I ended up cooking her for four days,” David Viens said on the tape, which was played in court.

“You cooked on [her] body for four days?” replied Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Richard Garcia.

“Before it was done,” Viens said. It was unclear from the interview where the cooking took place.  Viens said he had accidentally killed his wife and wanted to get rid of her body.

The chef said he thought of how easily he disposed of grease in his restaurant. So, he said, he stuffed his wife’s body, face-down, into a drum of boiling water — and cooked it. For four days.

REACTION FROM RESTAURANT CUSTOMER:  “It’s sick,” said customer Scooter Tillison.

“He’s a sick man. It’s never, ever good to boil your wife.”


In another restaurant-related item… customers in Florida do NOT like their mashed potatoes served COLD!   From BradentonHerald:

A manager at Cody’s Roadhouse, 895 Cortez Road W., reported to deputies that she was beaten by a customer Monday afternoon, an incident that allegedly started over cold mashed potatoes.

The incident began on Sept. 14 when a woman, who was eating in the restaurant with a male and two young girls, became upset when her mashed potatoes were cold and requested a 50 percent discount on her meal, according to a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office report.



This here is just a guy who got over his battle with anorexia!  YAY for him!!

  1. IT’s also “Gold Star Mother’s Day” which is always the last last Sunday in Sept and is a day for people to recognize and honor those who have lost a son or daughter while serving the United States Armed Forces. A joint congressional resolution designated the last Sunday in September as Gold Star Mother’s Day, a holiday that has been observed each year by a presidential proclamation


  2. Owe Lawsy. That wife cooking story is bizarre. Its like that ole sadistic nursery rhyme:

    Peter, Peter pumpkin eater,
    Had a wife but couldn’t keep her;
    He put her in a pumpkin shell
    And there he kept her very well.

    Peter, Peter pumpkin eater,
    Had another and didn’t love her;
    Peter learned to read and spell,
    And then he loved her very well.
    Between that and the horrific rock a by baby with the boughs breaking and all is it any wonder that children have nightmares?
    Cold potatoes huh? Whats about the chicken nugget freak out lady? People are crazy!

    Speaking of T-shirts, I have been thinking of getting my son a shirt that says “I’m kinda a big deal” Cause, well he is. :)


  3. I heard that chef story on the news–sick. And, damn, I was JUST looking at apartments in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. Scratch that town!!


  4. I also beat anorexia and I’m proud that I had the will power and discipline to do it.
    The Bradenton area is a pretty cool place to live if you stay barricaded in your home. Ha ha ha.
    Seriously, it’s a nice area with great beaches and good weather, but it does have it’s share of crackpots, but we don’t keep them a secret. We brag about them. As for the woman flipping out over the cold mashed potatoes, well, they were probably the cheapest instant kind. After all she did go to a “roadhouse”, so what did she expect? Do you all know what a roadhouse is?

    And finally, God bless all the Gold Star Mothers out there.


    • Don’t knock Cody’s Roadhouse. Dem mashed taters are yummy. And many of my teacher colleagues work there (at least the St. Pete one), so be nice!
      And you are right as rain, Miles, we are quite proud of our crazies down here. Didja read about the 3X a charm bank robber who called 911 and turned himself in for being stressed out when he was gettin’ ready to rob bank #3?


  5. Truth is stranger than fiction….bizarre and distrubed people are at and everywhere! God Bess all Gold Star Mothers. Didn’t know about it.
