Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Part 1 Recap: The Lyin’

Seriously? They are going to do blondes versus brunettes? Just ridiculous.

This is why elementary school teachers learn to line their kids up by height so school picture day will not look like this. How much did Andy pay for that ill fitting suit?

It’s kind of ironic that some of my favorite people are Brandiloons. It’s even more ironic that my oldest and dearest Brandiloon has a) Given up alcohol for Lent …and stuck with it unlike me and (2) Is claiming she is not going to watch the reunion. I would suggest that she, and all of my sweet, deluded Brandiloon friends avoid reading this recap as well. The Brandiloons seem to all have a deep Anglophile streak so perhaps something interesting is on BBC this evening.

Brandi’s face. It’s just. I can’t believe people pay to have that done. What a dorky opening. Then he starts right away with other peoples questions (He’ down with OPQ).  Kim is in Sharknado 3 (sounds like Kathy is calling in favors). Someone wants to know how the most Eileen has ever won on a sports bet. She says she has lost several thousand and won several thousand it all evens out. Good answer for the IRS.  BTW When I had a big win in Tunica they bring out the chips in dramatic fashion with guards and then you sign away your taxes and pay them right there. Brandi describes Kenya as very, very, smart, a little bit crazy and evil. Which is of course why Kenya is my spirit animal.  Another fun TT fact: Kenya tweeted me about buying furniture in Atlanta last weekend. I’m sure she has no idea that her haters think she pays me to say nice things about her. But that fanned the flames as I knew it would.  OTOH, DID I MENTION KENYA MOORE TWEETED ME! #Dead Continue reading

Was Russell Armstrong Murdered?

rhobhtayloronphonelawyer

According to a TMZ Exclusive,  Russell’s father Louie has been saying since Russell’s death in 2011 that it was not a suicide.  TMZ reports that Louie has filed court documents requesting the autopsy photos   of Russell be released to him so that an independent medical examiner can review the case.

The autopsy report (warning graphic details) makes a pretty clear case for suicide. Side note: Why are the tops of the pages of the document time stamped 2004?  So this whole situation is pretty sad.

The Armstrong family was publicly angry with Taylor at the time of Russell’s death and it seems as thought Taylor has cut the family out of her life and Kennedy’s.  Taylor’s new husband, John Bluher, recently adopted Kennedy. Continue reading

Lisa Vanderpump’s Blog on Her Treatment in Puerto Rico is Interesting

Lisa Vanderpump RHOBH PRLisa’s Vanderpump’s Bravo Blog this week is pretty interesting. But what is even more interesting is what she doesn’t say. See if you can figure out what is missing…

About Kim and Mauricio…

I do believe that if you state categorically, denying the accusation, as I did to Kyle saying”I did not see the magazines  when we were at Brandi’s house.” I was baffled, but still  defending myself. To then keep perpetually interrogating me with the same question — well at that point that is tantamount to being called a liar. I should only have to answer it once. When I see Mauricio calling me a “f—ing bitch” on the beach over a rumor from the trustworthy Brandi, that hurts. Kim had only heard it from Brandi too. She wasn’t there. . . but was acting as if she was a viable witness. Then in an interview, for Kim to say she was glad we were gone — that spoke volumes.

She basically calls Brandi an untrustworthy bitch, and says how hurt she was by Mauricio’s comment.  She points out that Kim was not even at Brandi’s house and had no idea what she was blathering on about.

When we left that hotel, after Kim had been pretty abusive with no regret, we knew to stay or inform them that we were exhausted by the unrelenting accusations and wanted to leave it would result in an even more complicated scenario. Continue reading

Taylor Armstrong Responds To Couples Therapy Outburst Episode

Artwork by PrettyontheOutside.com

Taylor Armstrong sent out two tweets last night about last night’s Couples Therapy episode and she was NOT pleased.  She was also full of excuses about her behavior. There were zero apologies.  First she says “they” promised her “no editing.”  Because THAT happens on reality shows.  Really? She thought they would just run raw footage of 2 weeks of shooting? Actually, she sent out THREE tweets.  The first one just said “GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.” She seems very angry with the show. Did she honestly believe this show would show her in a positive light? Is she THAT STUPID? Continue reading

Recap of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Part 2

The Real Housewives of Beverly HIlls - Season 3We 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

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Recap: Second Verse Same As The First

RHOBHvegasstripperI tried to get a quick and dirty recap of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills up and once again WordPress ate the first two or three paragraphs. We began with Marissa wondering like the rest of us what the hell is so empowering about women sliding up and down the pole. Basically everyone took a turn on the pole and that was that. No more mention of this “seminar” Brandi is running or how it went or when it is… perhaps it is the next day and that is why later in the show everyone bails on Yolanda’s private plane except Jenn and Lisa.  Meanwhile, the best paragraph of my recap of RHOBH got eaten by WordPress.  Apparently. Adrienne has a new line of handbags to go with her fat little shoes.  Despite the fat that the Maloof Hoof is constantly on clearance, Adrienne thinks she can expand to handbags. They better be some low-end handbags because a handful of designers have cornered the market on stupid people with money. They now actually pay five figures for a purse. A fool and her money are soon parted… I just can’t believe women are this stupid. Adrienne made a couple of jabs in her talking head about everyone being in Vegas besides her because her business is shoes and handbags and Brandi’s is the pole.  Um, your business used to be a serious empire of many things. The fact you have now stooped to being one of those housewives who sell handbags and wines of the month speaks volumes about your business.

When Kim calls to say she is going to get a nose job THAT DAY. You have to wonder if Kyle even knows when Kim films. Also, did y’all catch Jenn the Celeb Rehab Chick shake her head no when Brandi asked if Kim could have pain meds after a nose job? Kyle just brushed it off like of course, who cares. But the answer is no Kim should not have any narcotic pain meds after a surgery, nor should she be getting an elective surgery this quickly after rehab. I imagine the reason we have this new doctor doing her nose is because she is not telling him she is an addict.  There is more than one way to get some pills in Beverly Hills.  I predict Kim will say, he didn’t ask and she didn’t know she wasn’t supposed to take them.

Edited to add: The rerun is playing in the background and I realize the phone call went like this.  Kim: “I am thinking about getting my nose done.”  Kyle: “When?”  So scripted. If your 40 something sister calls and says she is thinking about getting her nose job, you don’t say, “When?”  you say, “What brought this on?”.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Recap: Lawsuits and Ugly Americans

VPsheanaOkay this is so confusing. I suppose last week’s RHOBH was an extended episode and Vanderpump Rules was shortened in the world of Bravo which explains why tonight’s episode of Vanderpump Rules is labeled episode one, but I really hate this blurring of the lines.  Sigh. Anyway we are back to the scene of Brandi and Scheana crying which I thought we got past last week. The big thing they didn’t include then was Brandi saying that even if Eddie is cheating on Leann she hopes they don’t divorce because she doesn’t want her kids going through that again. She has real tears, y’all. If she did say that last time we saw this scene I missed it.

Lisa is doing the debriefing scene with Brandi and she is not sure how Brandi will get through it and she is everso worried about her. Um, she did it for a storyline for your spin-off because you asked her to Lisa. This ain’t our first trip to the reality show rodeo, ya know. We get how this works. In other news Brandi drinks rosé. I was unaware people still did that.  Brandi is explaining to Lisa that Eddie uses the same lines on everyone. This is a convenient and indirect strike against Leann (not that there’s anything wrong than that). Brandi wants to know who Lisa likes best. Sigh. Oh Brandi.

More footage of Yolanda picking lemons and hanging out with her bees. Despite her very odd husband, Yolanda is really starting to grow on me. Like an organic mushroom. Sad story about Kim and Kyle’s broken relationship. Violins in the background. Yolanda says Kim needs ten days on Master Cleanse. I am not kidding.

Meanwhile at Kim’s house, she has a houseboy AND a life coach. She may be my new hero. I need Gary to help me cope, communicate, provide structure and breathe and the houseboy to clean up behind me. Kim is hurt that Kyle outed her as an alcoholic on national TV. *cough* MJ from Shahs of Sunset style*cough* Kim says if you love someone and they have an issue like that you talk to them privately. In all fairness, I want to think Kyle tried that. Want.to.think.  Also, I think this is why Asa on Shah’s apologized in last night’s episode. Allegedly. Maybe.  Oh, Gary is not the “life coach” clearly he is her sponsor (not that there is anything wrong with that). Continue reading
