Welp, Boys and Squirrels, I have some bad news about tonight’s episode. I completely fast forwarded through the whole first look. It was all Brandi and Carlton pole dancing and leering at each other. I’m just so not interested in hearing Carlton talk about how much she loves female bodies. We get it. We got it three episodes ago. These two need to either film some scenes “eating at the Y” or STFU. Seriously. So my expectation for tonight’s show is very low. I just hope Joyce tosses her hair around a lot tonight because it seems to infuriate the haters.
Oh I forgot about the embarrassing waxing scene with the Richards family. I am upset I have been reminded of this again. Moving on.
Kim is throwing graduation party for Kimberly. It was supposed to be at Kathy’s and be outdoors with a Coachella theme, and the Kathy decided to go and visit the Queen of England instead. Or something similar to that. So Kimberly is scrambling to throw a luau at her place. Carlton and Brandi get burgers from a food truck and sit on Kim’s steps to chow down. Kyle and Mauricio arrive to that situation and in her talking head Kyle calls it a Fat Burger. I suppose it could have been a Fat Burger truck, I was not paying attention. It probably was since Kim’s eldest daughter is marrying into the family that owns Fat Burger.
Why don’t we ever see Brooke on this show?
Brandi is already excusing her behavior in her talking heads before we even see what she does. Joyce arrives happy, upbeat and dress for a luau and Carlton is already throwing shade. Carlton is pissed there is no alcohol at Kim’s house. Brandi is puking. She wants to leave. Carlton is drunk. So those two called a cab and left. YAY! They everyone had fun at the party so they didn’t show much.
After the commercial we come back to some boutique store…no wait. That is Lisa’s CLOSET. Seriously, I thought we were in a store as they panned past miles of racks of clothes. She is getting together clothes to donate to a foster home girls for prom. Lisa calls all the girls for help with donations. Lisa is worried about Joyce and Brandi crossing paths.
Joyce is a spokesperson for an anti-bullying campaign, Friend Movement. Lisa has also worked with them in the past. Joyce was doing the photo shoot where they flip off the bullies. She looked great!
All the ladies are having breakfast at Lisa’s to donate prom dresses. They all want to take the other dresses home. Kim is made at Lisa for not attending the graduation party. Lisa was out of town in Missouri at an event to support alopecia research. Kim says her hairdresser saw her at SUR. Lisa admits she did get back Saturday night. Kim will not let the subject drop. Yolanda was out of town too but Kim keeps saying everyone but Lisa was there. When in fact the only one who was really there was Joyce. Ken says, “I’m sure the are a lot of things Kim hasn’t turned up for.” Lisa says she didn’t just not turn up, she told her ahead of time she could not make it. Kim tells Ken that his comment was uncalled for and not very nice. She keeps repeating herself.
Lisa goes to greet Brandi leaving Ken alone with Kim and Joyce for the uncomfortable conversation above. Lisa downloads Brandi about the Kim situation. Ken tries to make a break for it but Lisa catches him and tells him he has to stay to keep Brandi occupied and out of trouble. Ken doesn’t look well in this scene.
Brandi walks out back and greets Kim and Joyce. She even uses Joyce’s actual name. Wow. Maybe Lisa is right and breakfast is a civilized part of the day! Kyle comes in with a scruffy dog that has a history of eating rabbits. Lisa puts Giggy in another room.
Time for Brandi and Joyce to talk. Brandi says first of all she may say stupid things but she is not a racist. Secondly, she may have been a bitch to her but she is not bully. Finally, she is not an alcoholic just because she got drunk on vacation. She says all this in a snotty manner with her pissy face on as Joyce tosses her long luxurious hair in silence.
In reply Joyce says, first of all, I am not calling you a racist, I said that was a racist comment and you have to admit that. Brandi interjects to say it was a stupid comment. Everyone that knows her knows she says stupid stuff all the time. Joyce says she let the comment go because she was still getting to know her. Brandi keeps talking over her despite asking Joyce to just listen to her speak without comment. Joyce did that. Brandi cannot return that courtesy in kind. Eventually Brandi says “I am sorry if I offended you.” which is a non-apology that Joyce graciously accepts anyway. She says we don’t have to discuss that anymore. Next subject. Joyce gives examples of Brandi’s constant bullying behavior. Brandi says “If I was a bully I would have knocked your fucking teeth out by now.”
Lisa and Kyle are very chummy this episode and are eavesdropping on the conversation between Brandi and Joyce together.
Some how Kim arrives back at the site of the catfight. Kim asks Brandi if she has apologized. Brandi says no. She has not received and apology so she doesn’t feel like she has go give one . Oh Lord, Carlton has arrived. With backup, Brandi’s bullying will only escalate at this point. Sure, it is not long until Carlton confronts Joyce for using labels to describe Brandi’s behavior. Suddenly, it is a crime to label something for what it is?
Meanwhile, Lisa gets through to Brandi and Brandi gives a pissy apology to Joyce. She promises that moving forward she will be kind to her and not call her any other name but Joyce. Joyce apologies too, basically because Brandi seems to feel she is entitled to one. Joyce offers a hug. Brandi bitches about the hug in her talking head.
Somehow I miss the previews for next week. Didn’t tape on the RHOBH version or at the beginning of the Vanderpump Rules episode. How is that possible?
