Rachel Zoe Gets Spoofed

Check out this spoof of the Rachel Zoe Project. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?

The Rachel Zoe Project - A LimeRecap

I'll admit I am hooked on Zoe! What a fabulous premiere episode!!!! If you missed or doubted that it was really going to be good, please check the Bravo schedule - there is a repeat today at 1:30!

There once was a stylist named Zoe
Who anticipates where trends will go.
If Rodger and Tay
And Brad say okay,
Rachel can put on a show.

For Rach, even Karl is compliant
Removing a sleeve for her client
And sending the dress
By Federal Express
He knows that her instinct is giant.

Celebrities trust in her taste
In her, reputations are placed
She’s always spot-on
Best-dressed lists forgone
Her clients are never disgraced.

For Cameron, Eva and Anne
Her people do all that they can
With clutches and shoes
And jewelry to choose
Following Rachel’s set plan.

Her memory's like a steel trap.
Gowns are recalled with a snap.
A runway in France
Has Rach in a trance
And dreaming of gowns in her nap.

But Rachel knows just what is right
For each woman’s color and height
She won’t let you down
You’ll have the best gown
In midnight, in pink or in white.

The pressure is on Rachel’s team
Taylor can sometimes be mean
But Brad’s in a bowtie
A “go-with-the-flow” guy
Perfectly balanced, supreme!

Don’t miss the “Project” next week.
As Rach makes sure everyone’s chic.
Oscar season is here
Add drama sincere.
Who’ll be the first one to freak?

Real Housewives of Atlanta - Episode Three LimeRecap

There once was a Housewife named Nene
Whom no one would ever call “teeny.”
At least six feet tall
She loves a good crawl
And Greg loves her in a bikini.

Her presence is simply like “Bam!”
She enters and says, “Here I am!”
All eyes turn her way
She’s ready to play
The only response is “Yes, Ma’am.”

She’s got even Anderson Cooper.
Rallying ‘round like a trooper.
And now a new book
We won’t overlook
Nene, we think you’re just super.

So who is this tacky new girl?
Daring to pull Lisa’s curls?
Saying Nene’s a plus?
And making a fuss?
We’ll watch as the season unfurls.

For no one can really touch Nene.
Her breasts swinging low and so free-nie.
She’s bigger than life
A devoted Housewife
Her charm sure lights up the small screen-ie.

A Kimerick

Here is my Ode to Kim Zolciak. I put a lot of love into this one!

There once was a Housewife named Kim
The bulb in her brain is on “dim.”
She likes to go shop
With funds from Big Pop
She wears Granny Panties for him.

Season Two and Big Poppa is gone.
Her checking account overdrawn
A belt for three grand?
The D&G brand?
With Kim, shopping’s never a yawn.

A different dress in every scene
Her wardrobe is fit for a queen.
Bravo pay must be great.
Kim seeks a new mate,
Whose credit card limit’s obscene.

Never down, Kim pursues a career
As a singer - she’s made it quite clear.
Dallas tries not to laugh
Along with the staff.
Apparently Kim can not hear.

Now that her wig’s been exposed
A new business opp is proposed
So Kim goes to class
How long will she last?
Fifteen, twenty minutes at most.

Still Kim carries on with a smile.
Managing “friendships” with guile.
Her integrity flawed
Self-awareness – a fraud.
Kim – you make Thursdays worthwhile.
