White Party time!
Wednesday night was the annual filming of The White Party for the upcoming season of RHOBH. The White Party has almost always been held at Kyle’s house except for that one year that LVP hosted it and Adrienne got self tanner all over her furniture. But this year LVP has decided to have a huge blow out at PUMP to maximize advertising for the business. She even got the Dail Mail to sponsor it and made sure that E! News was there on the red carpet to interview her. She made sure to use that opportunity to tell everyone how she really wasn’t coming back for another season but Bravo just begged and begged and so here she is again. I’m always amazed that these women think anyone believes that kind of malarky and then more amazed to see the roaming LVP trolls on Twitter that buy it hook, line and sinker.
We learned a lot of things from all the interviews. First of all there appears to be a lot of harmony amongst the girls. The long rumoured casting of Dorit Kemsley as LVP’s new puppet for the season was confirmed. Kyle, Dorit, LVP and Erika Jayne are all on the same team. And Kyle says Kim is coming back, because it’s good for her sobriety. Oh Kyle, still enabling and denying. Sigh.
In other news, David Foster was there and all cozied up with LVP. She sure seems to like hanging out with Yolanda’s ex husbands.

Technical Note: I THINK the mobile device commenting issue may be fixed. I’ve been working on it all day. I hope it works, but let me know either way. It seems that the mobile plugins (and other stuff) on JetPack revert to the default settings when there is a major WordPress Update and I have to go in redo all the settings. How convenient!
I am going to try to hit the broad strokes of this “Secrets Revealed” since I doubt there will be any secrets revealed. Let’s find out!
Secret: Kyle didn’t consult LVP about building her closet. Because Faye Resnick was doing it. Though LVP tries to say Kyle did consult her and Kyle placates her with some nods.
Not so Secret: Porsha is a handful. Kyle keeps her busy will all sorts of lessons, horseback riding, piano, and acting. However, this doesn’t stop her from spending $10K plus on coins for Kim Kardashian’s stupid app. This was a major news story here locally, the app apparently requires a credit card number and the “coins” that the kids then buy to keep spending in the stores are VERY expensive. Portia is not disciplined for anything.
We saw Kim visit Kyle in Palm Springs. Apparently when they were young they used to play “store.” Kathy would take their real money for things around the house and then sell them to them again later.
Not so secret: Swans are mean. We are treated to footage of one of the swans biting both Ken and Lisa. This is old footage.
Secret: LVP makes Ken get botox. She’s says he is 70 and if he doesn’t need now, then when? Never. He’s 70 for fucksake.

I am once again very behind because I thought this was coming on at 9 p.m. Did they move it for Below Deck Mediterranean? I can’t wait for the new Below Deck. But first we have to get through this.
We begin with LVP’s dramatic revelation of being in an abusive relationship. Andy thinks it is odd that she didn’t share this information when others were talking about abusive relationships. Odd indeed. Kathryn says that LVP has been very vulnerable with her a couple of times. Eileen says that LVP has a lot more compassion for dogs than she does for people. Andy is not ride or die for LVP in this episode, that is for sure. Andy keeps asking LVP if she has a hard time apologizing.
Erika goes after Kathryn for her backstabbing ways. Oh wait, first we have to debate if it’s okay to use certain words. #WordPolice Erika points out that Kathryn called LVP a “harmless old lady.” Kathryn denies it. Erika reads Kathryn for filth.
Yolanda talks about all of LVPs manipulations. A viewer wants to know why Tom calling her an alligator didn’t bother her but everyone saying she is a spider in her web. Kathryn says she has never heard LVP say a bad word about anything. Was that before or after she got hearing aids? Because everyone else’s jaw dropped at this ludicrous form of sucking up. Can we people move on? EVERYONE with a brain knows that LVP is the biggest manipulator of them all and quite quick to make nasty comments about others. The only reason why we are having another bash LVP reunion is because on occasion certain casts feel the need to point it out for those random watchers who are slow on the uptake.

I was more surprised than usual to see this show in my DVR tonight. I think I am getting old timers because every damn day I have no idea what I am supposed to recap until I look at what the DVR is going to record. At some point this week I forgot all about the reunion and actually thought it was all over. I think that is because we have talked this season to death. I’ve written a million Yolanda posts and almost as many Rinna Posts. Over the season I have read more about Lyme disease, Chronic Lyme Disease (or the lack of such a thing). neurological Lyme Disease and whatever other names and co-infections and whackadoodle treatments Yolanda came up with and how that affects her impending divorce. I think another reason I feel like we have already done this is that they put out so many clips and pictures. I am disappointed we are not starting backstage.
We start with someone asking where Kathryn gets off telling Eileen to spend 10K on handbags. Kathryn says maybe on three and they are investments. Kyle says she has some of her mother’s and will pass them down. Look Andy, enough with the softballs questions about ponies and handbags and sunglasses.
Time for an Erika package. Andy calls LVP out for wearing the same Tom Ford dress that Erika wore in her talking head. LVP points out that Erika just wore the top and she has the dress. Oh Pinky and her pitiful one ups. I am not a fan of any of the dresses on that couch, but it is the best dress LVP has ever worn to a reunion. She usually looks very matronly. Erika talks about how much Tom’s partners in the firm and their wives hated on her every day when she first got married. I have literally seen every moment of this reunion so far on the Internet. Everyone sucks up to Erika. Then Andy starts subtly pushing some buttons Erika doesn’t with to respond to, “submissive,” “traditional marriage,” Yolanda jumps in and sort of veers the topic off to Erika Jayne. Erika Jayne’s face briefly registered that she did not appreciate the assistance, then she moved on to not answer catsuit questions. Erika Jayne is handling her first reunion like a seasoned pro.
It occurred to me yesterday as I spent five and a half hours getting a haircut and some highlights (I look fabulous but Jesus Christ on a cracker, how do these housewives abide sitting for hours with a chair while people fuck with their hair and makeup?) it occurred to me that a lot of commenters here have either not watched RHOBH from the beginning, or see every season in isolation from the previous ones. Others just pick their pony ( or mini-horse or swan) whenever they began watching and defend that person to the death. I do not understand this viewing method as it is just not how life works in general with a group of women, and it certainly isn’t things evolve on reality shows. In any group of women, in a sorority, in the junior league, in an office setting, friendships change and develop and are influenced by the introduction of new members and the departure of old ones. On reality TV people come in one way on their first season and can be a completely different person on their second season. Kenya Moore came in batshit crazy and then toned it down for season two. Thus I hated her season one and have enjoyed her more and Moore as the season’s progress. Camille Grammar season one was not the same Camille Grammar we had in season two. Those are extreme examples, but in general you never see the season one personality of anyone by the second season. The longer people are on, the more they understand the game.

Last week’s episode of RHOBH was probably my all time favorite with all of the ladies except the one with Chronic Lymenopause hanging out in luxury suites at the Atlantis Hotel on The Palm in Dubai. When else would we ever get to see the inside of a 40,000 dollar a night 10,000 plus square foot hotel suite with views of the Persian Gulf? I can’t wait to see more. I’d be happy never leaving the hotel, frankly but tonight the ladies go racing across the sand dunes in a giant jeep, roam a local market and have dinner in the desert while enjoying an after dinner smoke from a shisha pipe.
We start this episode at a sea lion center. What, what? Why? Oh! It is part of the hotel. The ladies will be reviewing three activities at the hotel. It must suck to have to partake of five star services on TV in exchange for your five plus star suites.
Kyle and Pinky are swimming with the sea lions. Pinky adored the sea lions.
Kathryn and Rinna are going to the spa. The start at a gorgeous tub filled with bubbles and roses. I am not sharing a tub with a cast mate, and perhaps not even a long term boyfriend. Not enough rose petals in the world. But it would be great by myself! These two decide not to talk like they are supposed to during their pampering. I don’t blame them.
Eileen and Erika are going to the aquarium. Erika likes Rinna and these two talk about her strong reaction to the photos of Yolanda and the two former housewives. What I have since found out is that everyone agreed not to film with Brandi or Kim and that was the real reason that Rinna was pissed. But the viewers don’t know this and it can’t be mentioned on the show. Erika is so stunning.
Later Rinna and Eileen meet up in very similar caftans. Eileen tells Rinna that the word “enraged” is still bothering Rinna. Eileen says that she needs to let Rinna know she doesn’t agree with all of the things Rinna said at the beach. Really? Can we not just find a good schwarma and falafel place? Eileen seems to be trying to get Rinna to bring up all of her feelings to the entire group. Rinna says that she told Eileen how she really felt because she trusts her, and now Eileen seems to be wanting her to share with the entire group. She doesn’t get why. I do. Eileen needs to stir the pot and have some memorable scenes before the season ends. She needs to give production a few strong moments to ensure her return. If that means dragging her good friend Rinna with her? Oh well. Et tu, Eileen? Continue reading
