We start with everyone headed to the big Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce party celebrating the 100th anniversary of the city. Carlton tries to play the peacemaker between Yolanda and Lisa by pulling Yo aside and trying to talk some sense into her.
Brandi and Kyle’s talking heads are ridiculous. Kyle says, “It didn’t have to get ugly, that was in Lisa’s hands.” What exactly is Lisa supposed to do after she denied ridiculous allegations and everyone at the table starts jumping in and attacking her? I think leaving for the Four Seasons was the most polite thing she could have done.
Yolanda is the first to approach Lisa at the party. It was the typical fake smile, fake kiss, Beverly Hills crapola. The Kyle descends. Lisa says she was sorry that she had to leave early in Puerto Rico, but it was an impossible situation. Yolanda is trying to take the crown for stupidest talking head pretending she was worried about Lisa and Ken who could have been dead on the side of the road. Seriously, you drive someone away from an event and then you are made at them for not kissing you goodbye? Shut your lemon hole, Yolanda. Yolanda saw on Instagram that Lisa and Ken were just down the road actually enjoying themselves and she’s pissed about that. Ken brings Lisa a glass of wine quickly greets Yolanda and moves on. Yolanda claims that she and Lisa didn’t have an issue in Puerto Rico. Must be the Lyme Brain talking.
Yolanda thinks Lisa and Ken owe them an apology and an explanation!
Kim apologized to Ken and he accepted it and moved on. He did not say, oh Kim, it’s okay, we all shoot our mouths off from time to time. He also didn’t say anything rude like, nice to see you working the steps and making amends. He just said okay, thank you and moved on. This is unacceptable to Kim, how dare he not be kind to her? The audacity of some of these people!
Brandi is getting drunk. She begins to display this by shooting her mouth off at Carlton. Carlton has made the mortal sin of speaking an opinion on a situation for which she was not present. Worse yet, she is showing compassion for Lisa. Brandi is not amused.
Lisa pulls Kyle aside and tells her it is up to her to decide who to believe. They play back a scene from the luncheon at Carlton’s where Brandi asks Kyle about Mauricio’s cheating. Lisa immediately shuts Brandi down saying it is all bullshit. YOLANDA jumps in to say that there could be some truth to it. Now flash to present day and Lisa is the issue because she joked about Mauricio hanging out with Portia being the cause of the younger woman cheating rumors? I can’t with these women.
Meanwhile, Brandi is getting drunker and avoiding Lisa. Brandi says Lisa needs to apologize to her. Honestly? Is this just bad script writing or are these women this utterly clueless about what they have done?
Brandi finally stumbles over Lisa and drags her off to talk to her. About Scheana. Because that is what this entire set up is about. Lisa let Scheana have an engagement on her property. Lisa gave Scheana a starring role on her spin-off. Lisa let Scheana work events at her house that would be on RHOBH. Scheana. Scheana. Scheana. Lisa tries to tell Brandi that she hurt her and Brandi says she doesn’t care, she doesn’t want to hear it, and this is not about Lisa being sad. I would have walked away right then. Unfortunately, it dragged out further and Brandi was a bitch.
Mauricio wants to talk to Ken. He had a frankenbite as they walked off saying he could forgive Ken. FOR WHAT? Mauricio and Ken can’t get their conversation finished before the bitches and Lisa arrive. Eventually, Yolanda tells Ken the girls are talking and he needs to butt out. Wait, what? The MEN were talking and you showed up to be a cunt satchel, Yolanda. Ken calls Yolanda stupid (I would have used much stronger language, but Ken is civilized) and Lisa and Ken leave.
Yolanda says that Lisa and Ken feel like they are above the rest of them, including her and her King David. Her end tag says she is on the verge of beating Lyme disease (which is not her diagnosis, her diagnosis is CHRONIC Lyme disease, big difference) and that they are selling their Malibu home to be closer to Beverly Hills. Which is like the fifth reason she has given for moving.
Carlton gave the controversial necklace back to Kyle. Kyle gave it to Joyce. Joyce left it on the front step and it disappeared. Carlton’s lack of a more interesting tagline makes it look like she is out.
Joyce will be crowning the second “Queen of the Universe” soon.
I really liked seeing the women get caked up with makeup talking to their glam squads about their anxieties. I thought it was interesting that the stylists shortened the dress Joyce wore on site. Brandi is delusional as hell again. She is crying to Ken saying it’s mean of him to drop her from his life? Really? I’m surprised they put up with her this long. Do you think this reunion will be exciting or have we already seen all the best moments?
