Princesses Long Island finale recap "Princesses: Long Island" cast members, from left, Erica Gimbel, 29, Old Westbury; Joey Lauren Brodish, 30, Freeport; and Amanda Bertoncini, 27, Great Neck, enjoy the nautical ambience. (Credit: Bravo) "Princesses: Long Island" ended its 10 week reign on Bravo Sunday night, and did so relatively quietly, especially on the heels of an explosive second to last episode. And with the barrage of criticism the reality show received from many Long Islanders early on, "Princesses" seems to have ultimately played out like the month of March: In like a lion, out like a lamb. The question now is, will there be a season 2? No word yet from Bravo, though the cast is pushing girls nike air max for it on social media. A reunion special seems likely, since all the "Real Housewives" seasons get one, and this spring s "Married to Medicine" (a show more on par with "Princesses") did too. The finale episode left enough tension and unanswered questions to serve as reunion fodder, and even left the door open for a second season, should ratings convince the cable network it s worthwhile. In the meantime, cast members Chanel Omari, Ashlee White, Joey Lauren, Casey Cohen, Erica Gimbel and Amanda Bertoncini (plus Jeff and Babs!) probably have some regrets nike free run pink after seeing their lives play out on a show that played up a stereotype all at once based on geography, religion and socioecomonic status: the Jewish American Princess from Long Island. Here are five life lessons gleaned from the "Princesses": 1. Learn when to let go of the past Especially if the most painful part of your past is that time when the "hottest girl on Long Island" stole your boyfriend right before prom. Though this situation from 10 years ago was a huge source of contention between Casey and Erica at the beginning of the season, both seemed to have gradually moved beyond it, and have softened toward each other. Or maybe it just seems that way because they were hardly in any of the same scenes after episode 3. Regardless, Casey needs to focus on her present and future to truly be happy, and forget about wasting energy and emotions on Erica, who has apologized repeatedly and with whom Casey will probably never be friends. 2. Don t get your hopes up Even if you "really, really, really want to get married with Jeff." I KNEW Amanda s boyfriend of six months wasn t going to pop the question during that scene on the Long Island Rail Road (Bravo would not have teased it so obviously if he had!), but I was hoping for a move in with me proposal at the very least, not a promise ring. Amanda and Jeff nike air max 2014 seem to be on the marriage track though, so I d be willing to bet a Babs approved engagement is in their near future. 3. Stop trying to please everyone Chanel, I m looking at you. Whether it s family or friends, this princess was hyper aware of people s expectations and judgments the entire season, and for that I really felt bad for her. Constantly trying to predict another person s reaction to something or living up to someone else s plan for your life can only make you miserable. Do you, girl. 4. Playing victim is never a good look It s pathetic, not flattering or even strategic in an argument. Maybe Ashlee thinks acting like a victim the day of the "wine vineyard" tour from hell gives her the last word in her war on Joey, thereby crowning her the winner. She s wrong. More than that, her retelling of the events of that day make her seem borderline delusional. Erica should never have brought up the beef between Ashlee and Joey during lunch if she really wanted the group to enjoy the day, but that aside, Ashlee was looking for a fight. No matter how many times Joey said hashing it out with her in front of the other nike air max 2 girls at that moment was not important to her and not something she wanted to do at that moment, Ashlee would not stop bringing up the "funny looking" comment and more. She provoked aggressively, then said she was attacked even going so far as to compare the fight to pitbulls attacking a teacup Yorkie (Ashlee being the Yorkie). Please. Not only does Ashlee walk away from the table to call her parents (big surprise), all the while hyperventilating into the phone ("Help. me") and asking if they can charter her a private plane from the East End to Roslyn (she can t be serious), the 30 year old disappears down the rural highway, leaving Chanel to search for her for hours. According to Ashlee, she had a panic attack on the nike free woven side of the road and hitchhiked to a hospital, where "they had to give me a Benadryl." If that series of events is not a desperate cry for attention I don t know what is. The worst part is that she blames Joey, Amanda and Erica for a) essentially putting her in the hospital, and b) "not caring" that she ended up in the hospital. Ashlee, you did that to yourself. No one could have predicted, as they were leaving to meet Erica s father on his yacht after you made them two hours late for that, that your health would be jeopardized later that day. Come to find out, Ashlee had had a stroke that left her bedridden for eight months just a year earlier. While that is completely unfortunate, it doesn t mean anyone (besides Ashlee) should have acted any differently at the vineyard. Falling victim to a terrible circumstance (such as having a stroke) does not give a person a free pass to play victim in every other situation for the rest of their life. 5. Don t take sides in an argument you weren t there to witness Casey asking Amanda to meet up just to berate her for how she handled the vineyard fight was totally off base. Casey wasn t even there that day! All she knows about what happened is what Ashlee and Chanel told her and we all know how rational Ashlee s version probably was (not). As for Chanel, I completely understand why she feels protective over her friend, especially knowing Ashlee s recent health struggles. But sometimes being a good friend means being honest and telling a person when she s in the wrong. Casey goes on and on about the importance of loyalty, but she s ultimately doing her friendship with Ashlee (and Amanda) a disservice if she continues to defend her blindly.

Princesses Long Island ratings fall in week two "Princesses: Long Island," from left, Erica all red air max 90 Gimbe Chanel Omari, Amanda Bertoncini, Casey Cohen, Joey Lauren and Ashlee White. nike air max torch 4 (Credit: Bravo) "Princesses: Long Island" took a tumble in its second week on the air: 887,000 total viewers, which looks like a small nike free running number because it is a small number. That s a drop of about 350,000 viewers from week one nike free run grey not exactly what Bravo is or was looking for. (Though according to a spokeswoman, ratings are "always expected to go down 2nd week then build after that, hopefully. That is common in new series on cable.") Nevertheless, a climb over the premiere week s performance (1.24 million viewers) in the second week would have indicated definite traction, and offered the network some support in a decision to order a second season. A decline complicates matters, though it can certainly wait until next week to see if there s a bounce. (Obviously, if Bravo were to order a second season, it would want to do so shortly, to take advantage of the summer for shooting and production nike max air purposes.).

Princesses Long Island recap Erica Gimbel, one of the cast members of the new Bravo TV reality show "Princesses: Long Island," at Great Neck Estates. (Credit: Newsday/Thomas A. Ferrara) As it nears the middle of the season, nike air max 90 white Bravo s "Princesses: Long Island" saw a particularly snooze worthy episode Sunday night not good for a show whose ratings took a nose dive last week for episode three. With all the preparing for and teasing of Ashlee White s 30th birthday party, I expected that scene to be at least entertaining to watch, but the most interesting part hummus crudits served from the waistband of a half naked guy s tighty whities had already been given away in the previews! Still, I was cringing thinking about the fact that Ashlee s parents were throwing this party and planned that detail. A bit gross on its own, but all the more so when it s your dad encouraging your friends to dip from a server s nether regions. Eww. Jewish singles camp could have been fun for Ashlee, black nike free run Chanel Omari, Joey Lauren and Casey Cohen. if they ever made it there. After a three hour drive to New Milford, Conn., Ashlee gets a call from the camp saying it has been closed because of a major storm. So they do what any pampered princess would: Head to a dive bar, mingle with the townies (who they would NEVER bring home to their Jewish mothers) and flirt with the bartender. Everyone manages to turn those frowns upside down with a few rounds of shots and some dance floor raging (you go, Coco!) everyone, that is, except Casey, who admittedly is "not the life of the party. I d rather drink and have fun with myself." What is that? Maybe for the fact that she works at a bar, the atmosphere is not particularly exciting for her, but what a wet blanket. Maybe I d see her point if she appeared to be actually having some fun sitting isolated at the bar, but it s not the case. Meanwhile, princesses Erica Gimbel and Amanda Bertoncini party with Amanda s mom, Barbara, during Body English Tuesdays at the Chateau in Carle Place, where Babs is basically a local celebrity. I m saying it now and I m sure I ll say it again before the season is over: Babs is by FAR my favorite cast member. With one liners like, "I m gonna get so low, I m gonna go to their basement" how can you not love her? Harder to embrace, or understand, really, is Erica s behavior that night. What begins as innocent flirting on her part, nike air max 93 as well as Amanda s, to score free drinks ends with her leading a guy away from the crowd following a drawn out conversation about "birthday sex." (It s his birthday.) This is AFTER Amanda reminds her she has a boyfriend. During her confessional filmed after the fact but interspersed throughout the scene, Erica dismisses her actions, saying womens nike free 5.0 boyfriend Rob would have no problem with what she s doing and that his trust issues stem from her reputation as "the hot girl" in high school. Erica, at 29 years old, I highly doubt Rob s jealousy comes from a reputation you had more than a decade ago. If he was jealous before seeing you talk to other guys about the thong you carry in your purse, oral sex and a possible sleepover, then you two are going nike running free 5.0 to have some MAJOR issues now. And they re your fault. Next episode, Chanel and Casey hold the intervention Casey previously expressed she wanted to stage with Erica about her heavy drinking, a problem that s been building throughout the season. I was hoping this would actually happen, both for Erica s sake as well as the entertainment value, since Casey and Erica are still at odds. It promises to be awkward at worst and explosive at best, but will Erica take it seriously?

Princesses of Long Island What s in a name? If it s a bottle of nail polish and you re a Long Island princess a whole lot. Amanda Bertoncini s long red fingers are clicking over the candy colored choices at NuBest Salon and Spa. She s "really into pastels right now," but really, her mani monikers are even more important. ET/PT) kick up their stilettos and settle in for some pointed pampering. "I forgot what it s called like, So Psyched?" Bertoncini is wearing a leopard print, maximum cleavage maxi dress and towering turquoise heels. Then, a pale blue polish pops out. The name? Can t Find My Czechbook. "It s perfect," declares Bertoncini, grinning. There was the WASPy, plummy, Gatsby Long Island. There s the hedgerow hemmed, hedge fund funded Hamptons, Long Island. And there s this shiny, suburban, mostly Jewish swath just east of Queens on the North Shore of Lawn Guyland, known for brassy, sassy Daddy s girls, aka "princesses." Or so goes the stereotype. Like the Jersey Shore clan before them, who reclaimed "guido" with gusto, this court of six Princesses say they aren t offended by that ethno religious slur of an acronym that starts with J. And yeah, they may work for Dad, carry Louis Vuitton and Chanel, have aspirations of lip gloss and perfume empires and live at home in relative luxury, but they don t aim, or claim, to represent every Jewish person or Long Island resident. No matter that various Italian American organizations didn t exactly cozy up to Snooki s fuzzy slippers. Shari Levine, Bravo s senior vice president of production, isn t worried about what, say, the Anti Defamation League will think of her network s show. "Because you know what? We have shown these people to be who they are. They re very much themselves and very self aware. They are the first ones to laugh at themselves and say, This is who I am. This is how I was raised, and I love it. " In subjecting yet another subculture to the spotlight, "our goal wasn t to focus on a group and to give it a distorted lens, but to show how a group has a cultural relationship with each other and see the choices they make and the influences nike air max black they have," Levine says. But push the postmodern philosophizing aside: "We re entertaining," says a freshly spray tanned Erica Gimbel, 29. "We re like six Barbie dolls; everyone can relate to one of us," says Bertoncini, whose boyfriend, Jeff Hoffman, drove her here today because her outfit wasn t accelerator friendly. Hoffman, 39, who works in sales, is wearing a red visor embroidered air max outlet with her initials in white. There s even a Snooki sized princess: Ashlee White, 30, who stands 4 feet, 9 inches ("that s what I say) and whose size 5 neon orange platform pumps are "Krazy Glued" to her feet. "If I can t wear stilettos, I don t go." "Just because we re from a privileged environment doesn t mean we don t go through issues," says Chanel nickname: Coco nike free 4.0 Omari, 28. She s the only one who comes close to wearing a tiara: a headpiece fashioned from a $5 gold necklace. Omari is "a girl on a budget, believe it or not." To wit: She may get biweekly blowouts, but today s buffing and filing excursion is a treat for Omari; she typically DIYs her hot pink digits, every week. Bertoncini swears she expertly applied her giraffe long eyelashes herself. all black nike free run "People take that term (princess) and think we re handed everything on a silver platter, that we only shop and we re only into material things," says Gimbel. (Indeed, Joey Lauren, 30, says she grew up with only a "bronze" spoon, which dished out a Honda Accord, when everyone else was getting a BMW, and a public, vs. private, college education.) Being a Princess nike free womens 5.0 isn t all pool parties and Jelly Apple pedis. Gimbel s hands are getting the hot wax treatment. "That is some serious sweat," she says, examining her sticky green blouse. "That is not very princess like."

Real Housewives Kyle Richards Shops Chanel in It seemed like Kyle Richards from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has experienced a bit of a backlash since the reunion episodes started airing because it seems as if she was harsh towards many of the housewives. So what better way than to do some retail therapy to get over those harsh criticisms she has faced since the show aired. Yesterday, Kyle got some retail shopping in during her busy schedule in West Hollywood. She nike free run 4 stopped by Chanel to pick up some items, smiling and looking relaxed. But the public isn t done nike free v5 watching the criticism just yet, as the reunion s final part will air on Monday. On top of everything that viewers saw on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, a new rumor has surfaced that Kyle s husband helped Lisa sell her home, earning $1 million commission. That occurred just days before the reunion air max 90 black was scheduled to tape, meaning Kyle pretty much turned on Lisa after getting $1 million. Perhaps Kyle didn t realize that the public knew about this deal when she fired back on Lisa s comments throughout the reunion. When nike womens free run Lisa publicly said that she couldn t forgive what had happened, Kyle s husband could have said something to Kyle about it. It wouldn nike free 5.0 v3 t be the first time Kyle messed up something with her husband s contacts as shown on season 1.

Remarkable Life Remembered A Russian immigrant who, via Brooklyn, had settled in Dallas, Abraham Zapruder was a successful manufacturer of women clothing. Like many Americans, the 58 year old was developing a passion for homemade movies and set out to film Mr Kennedy motorcade with his 8mm camera. His silent, colour film, taken from a pedestal on grassy knoll, lasts 26 seconds and contains 486 frames. It remains the clearest video of the assassination. The original Zapruder film is part of the Kennedy Collection and is in the custody of the Motion Picture Sound and Video staff. Among the facts that have fed conspiracy theories is the charge that the original notes written by one of the two Navy pathologists who performed the autopsy air max kids had disappeared. The pathologist, Dr James J Humes, explained that he burned his original set of notes because they were stained with Mr Kennedy blood and wanted to prevent them from becoming a macabre collector item. In a 1992 interview with the Journal of the American Medical Association, he said he had burned them in his fireplace "after nike free run 4.0 I had copied verbatim in my own handwriting the entire contents". Mrs Kennedy pink dress, a Chanel like ensemble with navy lapels complete with pink pillbox hat, has become a symbol of both her glamour and of the assassination day violence. Mrs Kennedy insisted on wearing the suit, stained by her husband blood, during Lyndon Johnson swearing in and on the flight back to Washington. According to William Manchester book the Death Of A President, to aides urging her to clean up, she responded: "No, let them see what they done." Now the dress, still stained, is preserved in a vault of the National Archives, out of view according to restrictions imposed by the Kennedy family. The hat is believed to have been lost in the day confusion. Three days after the assassination, the US stopped to bid farewell to the murdered president. The state funeral on November 25, 1963, in Washington drew hundreds of foreign dignitaries. Only 50,300,000 American households had televisions in 1963, and it was estimated that 41,553,000 sets were tuned into the funeral. The ceremony included a touching moment nike air max 1 black that went on to become one of the iconic images of US history: The president son, John F Kennedy Jr, saluting his father casket near St Matthew Cathedral after the funeral mass in Washington. The president was buried at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia. New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison announced in 1967 that he had "solved the assassination", all red air max accusing anti Communist and anti Castro extremists in the CIA. In 1969, he brought to trial New Orleans businessman Clay Shaw on charges of conspiring to assassinate Mr Kennedy with the help of Lee Harvey Oswald and others. A jury took less than an hour to find Mr Shaw not guilty in a trial many saw as a farce. To date, Mr Shaw is the nike free 6.0 only man to have been prosecuted for the Kennedy assassination. Fifty years after the assassination, a majority of Americans believe Mr Kennedy was the victim of a conspiracy 61 % according to a Gallup poll this month. Numerous books and movies have been made on the Kennedy assassination, many espousing conspiracy theories. In 1991, Oliver Stone JFK largely based on Mr Garrison views rekindled interest in the conspiracy theories and led to the declassification of thousands of relevant documents. In 2001, the miniseries The Kennedys, starring Greg Kinnear as the president and Katie Holmes as the first lady, chronicled the life of the family.
