We begin this episode back in Hong Kong and end it at Lisa Vanderpump’s Diamonds and Rosé party. If you just checked out last week’s recap once, you probably missed A LOT of comments. You might want to get caught up here. Now back to the dinner brawl…
Tonight’s coke in the bathroom scene seems a little different to me. In this edited version Rinna asks if people were doing coke in the bathroom and Dorit replies, ” I certainly wasn’t.” Did that happen last time because it seems new to me. The argument goes nowhere but Rinna points out that Dorit insinuated she had a problem with Xanax so she might as well ask about what she saw at the dinner party. Then Rinna gathers her stuff, announces she is done, and waltzes out. Everyone else is ready to go as well. It’s interesting that Rinna decides the departure time, because I feel like production told her to say what she said and then start the processional back to the hotel.
LVP was quick to support Dorit in the confines of the van home with just the two of them and Kyle. Not so much at the table until Kyle jumped in at the very end.
The next day is shopping day, but Rinna has to fly out early to Philly where she has her QVC gig. Rinna calls LVP to tell her goodbye. That makes no sense until you realize it was to invite her to her party later in the episode. Everything is orchestrated on this show. Every little thing.
I enjoy watching the ladies shop to a degree, but they shop at places they could shop for in Beverly Hills. I find that ridiculous. They should show them shopping at places unique to the city they are visiting. Then again, Eileen would not get her promotional Louis Vuitton if they did that. Nor would Bravo be paid by all stores. In Hong Kong, Erika is an extra large. In Hong Kong if I lost my luggage I’d have to make a toga from bedsheets. Eden bought Erika a friendship ring. Eileen and Erika talked together as if nothing had gone down between them. If there was a conversation about it, it was not filmed.
The SPCA in is one of the fanciest rescue and adoption agencies in Hong Kong. I do not believe for a moment that they are shipping dogs to Beverly Hills. Eileen wanted to take one home but the paper work would be too time consuming. If Lisa was really shipping dogs from Hong Kong, she could have added Eileens dog. #FakeNews
Since the reconciliation between Erika and Eileen most likely happened privately in Hong Kong, the go to lunch in Beverly Hills to film a public one. Eileen talks about the upcoming Y & R filming. Kyle shows up looking fantastic and starts talking about Rinna’s attack on Dorit. Erika says she was happy that Rinna stepped in. She felt like Rinna was defending her. Erika is hoping for an apology from the Kemsleys at LVP’s party. Erika apologizes profusely to Eileen. Eileen is very receptive. These two really like each other and get each other. No hard feelings.
There was a Dorit/PK scene that gave me some time to stretch my back and refresh my drink. (Pom and sparkling water.)
It’s time for Erika’s walk on for Y & R. She is super nervous. The scene went very well. Eileen asked for more of Erika and Eileen generally gets what Eileen wants. I do not think those of you who don’t watch soaps understand how HUGE she is in soap opera land. She’s the current Susan Lucci but she has LOTS of awards.
Kyle seems to be love working on her set. It’s last day of filming. It’s a night shoot and Maurico shows up to support her.
What is the point of this Diamonds and Rosé party? Is this the season finale? It feels like the finale party. Either this is it, if the party is drama free or the finale is next week if things heat up. The first order of business is to put the mini horses in pink tutus. Because, of course.
The dress code is pink dress, diamonds and wedges. I guess the wedges are to keep from poking holes in the lawn. Kyle was late getting the memo so she grabbed a pink lace jumpsuit of a mannequin at her store. But since she is short the legs needed hemming. Short on time she started whacking the legs off and now they are all uneven. This is why I love Kyle.
Erika’s glam squad died a wig pink for her and her dress is black with giant rhinestones all over it. She drew the line at wedges. Dorit did some weird gold stuff to her hair, see above. Kyle’s pink lace jumpsuit and fake fur pink wrap suits her. Eileen brings her niece, Devon, and they ride with Rinna. Eileen foreshadows Rinna getting in to even bigger trouble at the party.
LVP’s part is for Pandora’s launch of her new Rosé, I had forgotten that until I saw her. That explains the complete extravagance of the party. It’s really outstanding. One of the most beautiful events in RHOBH history.
PK seems to be getting Dorit riled up for the night, as they hover around LVP.
Next week: It is the finale. Rinna says of Dorit’s hair, “It looks like a big gold goose took a big gold shit all over Dorit’s head.” That about sums it up. I had no words so I posted the photo. Dorit AND PK attack Erika. Eden calls someone a bitch. Probably Rinna, right? And Dorit of all people seems to be yelling at LVP!
Off to recap Imposters. Andy is on tour with Anderson so there is no WWHL tonight.
