We start the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Part 2 with the ending of the accusations from part one that Yolanda was trash talking Lisa. Lisa says she trusts Yolanda and that her trust with Kyle has been broken and will need to be repaired. This does not sit well with Kyle. The topic quickly comes to an end.
We move on to the Adrienne and Paul drama. Much footage has shown regarding the way Adrienne treated Paul on the show. It seems like a very long montage. Andy asks Kyle what she thought about them since they (Kyle and Adrienne) spent time together. Kyle says she just thought they were cute together with the bickering. Lisa interrupts and says she knew from season one that Paul had moved out of the house a couple of times because Adrienne told her in confidence (which I guess she is now violating) about the problems they were having. Kyle seem irritated that Lisa knew more about Adrienne than she did or perhaps that she was blabbing. Andy quotes Adrienne saying that she thinks Brandi’s new-found friendship with Paul was thought out and vindictive. Brandi says she is not friends with Paul they are simply cordial. Andy says in the same interview Adrienne plainly states that Brandi destroyed her family. Brandi says “I think we all know that’s not the case now.” Andy asks Brandi why she thought their marriage was a business relationship and she says because she never saw them being romantic. She said the one time she saw them kiss was when they were in Hawaii and it was so forced she felt badly for them.
Kyle says she is very shocked about Adrienne dating Sean Stewart. Brandi says that she had dinner with him once and found him to be very lovely. Everyone seems to think it is an odd coupling. Andy asks about the pictures of Adrienne’s back that Bernie posted on his Facebook page. Kyle says they spent a lot of time together and never saw any indication of abuse and that this isn’t the first time Bernie has said things trying to get attention. Brandi says Adrienne walked all over Paul. Taylor had a very uncomfortable expression but says nothing. Lisa said that Adrienne obviously condoned what Bernie said or else she would have denied it. Lisa says that if someone who worked for her had said that about Ken she would have been vociferously denying it. No one believes that Adrienne was abused. In fact, they show a clip of Adrienne doubting Taylor’s abuse. Taylor says that Adrienne gave her no support during her abuse. Bravo is really going all in on Adrienne. Whether or not it is warranted is a matter for debate.
On to Kim’s alcoholism. There was a long montage that has Kim choked up. Kim says she was hurt but a lot of the things she saw from Kyle. Kyle says she was joking. Kim says it’s not a joking matter. Kim feels like she is supported by Kyle when they are together but watching the show was very hurtful. Discussion gets sidetracked by Kim referring back to Yolanda commenting on her memory. Kim seems to want to talk about Yolanda to avoid talking about Kyle. Much bantering back and forth between Yo and Kim. Brandi jumps in to say….are you ready for this?….are you sure??? Okay, Brandi says that Yolanda was not just carrying all of Kim’s luggage through the airport but also her shit-stained pillow! Brandi confirms she means it literally. Kim asks Brandi why that comment was necessary. Kyle asks how she knows. I get a bit sick to my stomach by the imagery. Can we all please move on? No, we can’t. Kim says that there is no need for her to jump in and be mean. She asks if that is what she did to Adrienne. Andy says that Brandi has said that Kim and Kyle don’t like each other. Brandi says that is how it appears to her. Brandi says that Kyle is always the one doubting Kim’s sobriety. Kyle says she doesn’t understand the history between the sisters. Oh Lord…here we go… Andy will not get off the topic. Now he says to Brandi, “You said that certain people want to see Kim fail…” These aren’t even questions Andy. This is not a topic for shit stirring!
Brandi says. “I almost feel like it would make her (Kyle) happy if she (Kim) failed (to stay sober).” Very long pause while everyone’s brain thinks “holy fuck did she really just say that?” Then a loud gasp. You can practically see the simultaneous thought bubbles. A brief eruption of sound by two or three women and Kyle says “Wait, I’m going to say something! You know nothing about the history of what I have gone through with my sister….That is the meanest thing you can say!” Kyle “cries”. Back from commercial same topic. Still going on. Kim is breaking down. She can’t speak. This Humiliation by Bravo with the addicts on their shows needs to stop. This is awful. Kim says she thinks if she relapses again she will die. Lisa and Kyle trade seats so Kyle can sit with Kim. Taylor is physically reaching out to Kim but Kyle is not. Kim is confronting Kyle. Kyle is saying that she misspoke in Paris. Kyle backpedals and never just says “I am sorry, I should not have said what I said.” Andy suddenly asks Brandi to apologize to Kyle. WTF, Andrew? Should we not start the apologies with Kyle to Kim if you are going to play third grade teacher and start suggesting who may or may not owe whom an apology? Brandi apologizes for word choice but reiterates her meaning. Kyle does not apologize to Kim but somehow Andy gets Kim to accept the apology Kyle never gave. Andy suggests that Kim cut Kyle some slack!!! If there was any doubt who Andy likes best we certainly know now it is Kyle. Now that everyone has kissed Kyle’s ass, he is ready to move on. FINALLY.
Just when you think Andy can’t get any more idiotic, he starts talking about the celebrity net worth site as if it is legit. He says they have determined that Adrienne topped the group financially. He ticks off the list of everyone’s imaginary wealth. This is perhaps one of his doucheiest moves. Lisa says if she had $150 million she would not be sitting there on the show. Yolanda is asked why she can’t afford more horses. She explains that she has a budget just like everyone else and to keep a show horse of that quality cost $300-400 thousand a year and she just can’t afford more. Andy finally realizes that he is being ridiculous, the website he was quoting is ridiculous and moves on to talk about sunglasses. I’m serious. Yolanda designed and had her refrigerator built herself. Yolanda lets us know she does fly commercial at times but never coach if she can avoid it. Most of the others piped up that they do fly coach. Well, that was enlightening and a great use of reunion show time.
Time for Mauricio and Ken to join us. David is off with Stevie Wonder. First, a commercial for Mauricio’s business.
OH!Time for a statement from Paul. He says:
“Anytime a couple separates, it’s an extremely hard thing especially when you have children. I was raised in a dysfunctional family. My mom and dad fought a lot. And you know, it’s something that I look back and wish my parents had divorced and split years ago when I was young. The only two important things to me right now that I am extremely focused on are my children that I love very much. And also my practice and I have to say that my patients have been very supportive of me and I just want to be a good doctor and a good dad. I do not blame Brandi for having Adrienne and I spilt. Absolutely not. I blame Brandi for making comments that are absolutely unnecessary and hurtful. What Brandi did was wrong. She did graciously apologize to us and when we have any contact, it’s cordial. Being on the show at times it’s been great because I’ve met some wonderful people, some lifelong friends but other times no. This season was very difficult. It was raw. Reality became reality and I would have preferred for things to be more private. Will I ever be on the show again? Well I never say never. Especially if one of the ladies needs emergency plastic surgery!”
Mauricio sold Adrienne and Paul’s house for them and is still working with Adrienne to help her find a new house. Of course he is. Montage of the husbands fighting is played. Andy asks Mauricio if he regrets what he said to Brandi. He says no not at all. Brandi asks if he thinks he should have spoken to a woman the way he spoke to her. He says no that was wrong, but brushes it off to get back to his point. Ken jumps in and defends Brandi. Kyle jumps in to defend Mauricio. Brandi is practically hugging the end of the couch and Mauricio is right next to her. Mauricio wants Brandi to tell him what he said that was disrespectful. Brandi says it was his tone, the way he yelled at her across the restaurant. Mauricio actually apologized (without Andy coaching him). Mauricio denies knowing that Paul and Adrienne were interested in selling their house. Lisa says that he did because when she was selling her house Mauricio showed a client Adrienne and Paul’s house at the same time! Mauricio backpedals and denies this sort of.
At the end of the reunion, everyone seems willing to be friends next season! Imagine that! Nary a mention of Camille. Not so much as a whisper about Marisa and Taylor barely opened her duck lips. And Faye, bless her heart was not mentioned at all tonight. So what did y’all think?
