Oh um, hi. Sorry. I was totally mesmerized by Yolanda Foster’s home and infinity pool. I totally had to sit there and gawk at the view. Yolanda’s brother and mother have flown in from Holland for the reveal of David Foster’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
The editing on RHOBH makes recapping a PITA. You get a tiny little clip of nothing from Brandi, and a tiny little clip of nothing from Kyle…. Basically, everyone has dogs and everyone is discussing whether or not Mauricio is a dog. Well, everyone except Carlton. Carlton is a witch, so she has a black cat, who she is taking in for acupuncture treatments.
Kyle and Joyce go to get weirdo Beverly Hills facials. Joyce wants to take everyone to Palm Springs but she is a bit wary of Lisa. Continue reading

Brandi wants to dump JR now that she got the house she wanted. She is having this conversation with Jennifer in the bathroom as she runs her bath. She made sure to flash her entire ass at the cameraman which I thought was a bit too…um “cheeky” and then she strips naked and gets into the tub with a full camera crew in her bathroom! Sigh.
Joyce runs a pageant called Queen of the Universe. I wonder how Trump feels about a former Miss Universe naming her pageant that? She has two adorable little boys and they have a mini putting green in their back yard. How cute. Will they be the next Tiger Woods?
As much as I want to call Carlton Morticia and violate my own rule against stupid names, I won’t. Carlton is planning a luncheon at her home for the ladies.
Yolanda is receiving daily in home visits from a holistic nurse. Gigi is leaving at the end of the summer to go to school in NYC. That should be a great place for her modeling career as well. She is studying criminal psychology. I wish I had focused my undergrad on that rather than general psychology.
JR seems like a nice guy, who is about to be blindsided. He is trying to be nice. But Brandi is pissed that he went on a couples trip to Texas without inviting her or even telling her. She seems like she is trying to dump him before he dumps her. Continue reading

We start with Yolanda’s AMAZING house. I cannot tear my eyes away long enough to blog. I love her and I hate that she will end up not being on “my team” this season. Probably. Oh God. Yo is doing a master cleanse will medicating for Lyme Disease.
David and Yolanda are off to her doctor’s appointment. David is much more supportive of Yo than Peter was for Cynthia last night. David agrees that he is doing a great job being supportive. Yolanda has been through hell. David carries her Hermes bag and rubs her feet. Yolanda is getting her port taken out. Gigi is on the master cleanse and is all light-headed and weak and afraid to ride the horse. MASTER CLEANSE IS NO BUENO!
Lisa is still on Dancing With The Stars and I swear we did this last season. I guess it was just all the new coverage. Kyle and the girls go to DWTS to support Lisa. Even Taylor Armstrong is there! That was when Brandi had the mysteriously burned hand so she was wearing gloves to DWTS. Go look at the picture I never did find out what happened. Or if I did I have forgotten. Taylor’s married boyfriend John is there with her. They are engaged now. After the show they all go out to dinner with Lisa and Gleb. Kyle and Kim watch Lisa faint on DWTS in the last scene. They are saying she if faking it because she doesn’t want to do the show anymore. Wow. Do you think that is true? Both Richards girls mock Lisa and reenact the fainting scene. Continue reading

It’s time to preview this Monday’s two-hour Bravo premiere of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules which is once again sort of all blurred together. How exactly did Lisa work out that arrangement again? Anyway, this is a much rougher cut than the RHOA screener. No new intros and the old one still shows Adrienne and Taylor in there as a place holder. So sorry no tagline spoiling today!
One of the interesting things I notice is that there seems to be an order of importance when it comes to editing. If you recall on the preview of RHOA premiere tomorrow, the taglines begin with Nene and seemed to follow a hierarchy and the scenes had pretty much the same order, starting with Nene’s wedding. So for RHOBH we start with Lisa. I was so sure we had already covered her appearance on DWTS last season. I guess we just saw so much coverage of it, we thought we saw it because the opening scene is DWTS practice. I actually thought I picked up the wrong CD and checked the cover letter to make sure it was this year’s screener. Side note: If you missed the preview post for the upcoming Shahs of Sunset premiere, of course Reza was first.
Anyway, the storyline for the “two-hour cross-over event” is Kyle throwing a party for the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce to celebrate the 100th Birthday of Beverly Hills. Of course she hires SUR to cater it despite Lisa and Kyle being on the outs. And of course it is an all in party by Bravo that everyone must attend. The warring factions have not seen each other since the reunion. I love the interaction between the guy from the chamber and Kyle as he explains to her what the Chamber of Commerce is and welcomes her aboard. Fair warning, I am expecting to shift teams this season. I really like the new girl Joyce since watching Siberia, which was a fun a quirky little way to spend a few summer hours. And despite Kyle being such a whining victim last season, I am expecting better things from her this season. If Brandi and Lisa are going to have a falling out, as reports have indicated, I am going to have to take Lisa’s side unless they show me a really good reason to stick with Brandi. As for Joyce saying Brandi needs rehab, I really don’t see how Brandi can be offended when there were pictures of her falling down drunk all over the Internet during filming and she has not one but two books with drinking in the title for sale on Amazon. You drink a lot Brandi. Own it and move on. If I recall correctly Brandi said the same thing to Kim Richards on her first season of RHOBH. And well…she didn’t take it too well either but she did eventually make it to rehab. Continue reading

Radar Online is reporting that one of Kim Richards children was put on a 72 hour psychiatric hold last July. According to their source, neighbors reported one of her adult children roaming naked in the street and speaking gibberish. Police determined the person was a danger to themselves and others.

Radar Online is reporting that the RHOBH are in Puerto Rico for a group
fisticuffs vacation. But um… Can we talk about this picture?
What secrets could possibly be left for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to reveal? Do we even want to know?
1. Brandy says that her Oscars dress fit when she tried it on but she didn’t try it on the night before. When she got there it took four people to get her in it.
2. Brandi called child stars “a particular breed of hideous” in her book. Andy points out that Kim and Kyle were child stars. I laughed out loud. Brandi says she was talking about Leann but that some child stars have a certain brattiness as a result of getting what they want from an early age.
3. In Paris, Brandi showed the two men from Louis Vuitton her bra. I suppose technically it is a bra. It’s black and the cup is lattice work with more boob than lattice. We also learn that Brandi had very large, very dark areolas. I did not need to know that.
4. Brandi made out in the bathroom with the hot guy at the white party. He is still “in her life.” But they are not dating. Continue reading

Kim has a belated blog post about the RHOBH reunion. It’s um… well. I am not even going to try to comment on it. I will leave that to you guys. I am including the two most interesting parts. First, she tries to defend the shit stained pillow. Speaking of the pillow, the original Kim’s pillow twitter got removed! And then, she has a lot to say to Yolanda. Yolanda, who actually made much more of an effort to befriend her in Paris than anyone else, seems to be the target of her wrath and the only one she is not still friendly with. Take a read and tell me what you think…
With regards to Brandi. . .Brandi baffles me. I really don’t know why she jumped in on my conversation with Yolanda. Yolanda and I were having a discussion that had absolutely nothing to do with her! The next thing I know she’s talking about my pillow — which was really quite mean! When I asked Brandy why, she said she was protecting her friend! Continue reading
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. Continue reading

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion begins with Andy telling everyone that Adrienne is not longer with us. I love how he says that her last act as a housewife is being a chickenshit. Lisa says that if you sign up to be on a reality show you can’t then sue when someone brings things up about you. Yolanda says that her not returning is a known consequence of not showing up for the finale. Lisa says that Adrienne is leaking stories to the tabloids saying that she quit, when that is not true and Lisa knows she wanted to stay. Even Kyle is doing some back-pedaling to distance herself from Adrienne.
Andy still won’t say what Brandi said about Adrienne. I guess the lawsuit is still in place. But we do get a retrospective of all of Brandi’s altercations with Adrienne and Paul. It’s quite the body of work for a new housewife. When Bernie put out negative info in the media about Paul, Paul called Brandi and apologized to her. Brandi clears up the lawsuit/letter debate by saying that she was friends with someone named Geneva who worked for Adrienne. Adrienne thought that Geneva was telling Brandi information so Adrienne sent Geneva a letter with Brandi’s name included. It sounds like a basic cease and desist letter Geneva’s lawyer called Brandi’s lawyer and said that Adrienne’s lawyer was going to go forward with a lawsuit if Brandi (and Geneva) did not agree to sign a non-disclosure. Did everyone follow that? Good.
Kyle says that her favorite part of the season was the big party in Ojai. Thus ends the Kyle segment, apparently. Continue reading

This episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is going to be fabulous if for no other reason than it is Adrienne Maloof’s last episode! I love Yolanda. Jennifer goes and drags Marisa back over to Brandi and Yolanda (and Lisa) to finish the conversation. Brandi tells Marisa that rather than putting her husband down by telling the entire world she wants to sleep with someone new, they should both give each other a hall pass. Lisa looks physically ill but she makes Marisa tell Brandi who said she would sleep with married men (It was Faye). Yolanda gives Marisa a lecture on trash talking your friends in front of others and the conflab is finally over.
Linda Foster and Taylor are besties. Taylor tells her that it has been hard for her be nice to Yolanda and she cries and asks Linda if it is okay with her being friends with Yolanda. Linda says she is fine with it. Meanwhile, Lisa has cornered Faye and Faye says that Lisa uses Brandi to get back at Adrienne. Lisa sets her straight on that with no effort whatsoever so Faye changes tack to say that Lisa defends her and brings up the infamous bathroom sex at the white party. Lisa was the one to walk into the bathroom and pull Brandi out so she would not stay in there making out. That was all that happened. Interestingly, Faye has the tabloid version. It would seem that Faye is the mouthpiece for Kyle AND Adrienne. Faye then makes the exact same chess reference that Kyle made on last season’s reunion. I would imagine if you held a gun to Faye and Kyle’s heads, neither of them could tell you the first thing about how to play chess. Interesting they both use a chess analogy though, right? Lisa in her talking head says, “Checkmate, bitch!” This scene is hilarious. Kyle jumps up to intervene while saying in her talking head, “I really don’t like getting in other people’s battles.” Enough airtime for Faye, let’s move on to Ken and Lisa! Or at least watch Adrienne cry. Continue reading

I notice something very interesting yesterday. TooFab.com posted not one but two stories on Kim Richards. Why did I find that so interesting? Well it wasn’t the articles themselves as much as it was that she was doing press at all. Kim has been treated differently from the other housewives ever since she appeared on the show. She has rarely been expected to write a blog, her battle with alcoholism has been exploited by both her sister and the production team, and in general Kim has been excluded from any press. She did recently appear on WWHL, but it really didn’t do much to uplift her image. So why would Kim suddenly be out giving interviews with the reunion only days away? I have a theory. Continue reading
