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.

We start out the episode with Kyle “working” at her store, Kyle by Alene Too. Lisa Rinna stops by to shop. Mauricio promised Lisa (as a birthday gift) she could pop in the store and pick out whatever she wanted, charged to his account. Lisa brings up the fact she also once owned a boutique (she’s a hustler, remember) – Belle Gray. Says the store closed due to the recession, and multiple robberies. Kyle is opening a pop-up shop of Kyle by Alene Too in the Hamptons (cue Bethenny/RHOBH crossover #mybodyisready) and invites Lisa Rinna to come for a girls weekend.
We’re off to Villa Rosa, where we see Lisa & Ken tending to a very sick swan. Hanky (the swan) has a stomach infection and they’re taking him to the vet in the backseat of a Range Rover. Somewhere a tech developer is frantically creating Uber-for-pets. We get some hilarious footage of Ken struggling to get the swan into the backseat. Lisa suggests giving the bird Imodium to plug him up. Ken suggests sticking her finger up the swans butt – Lisa claims it wouldn’t be the first time. What a great mental image. They arrive at the vet and the vet lets them know she sees much improvement in Hanky.
Next up, we have Yolanda & Erika meeting Kyle for a walk in the park. They are legit dressed for a full-body workout session. So much tracksuit realness happening here. #ripJuicyCouture Continue reading

Okay what fresh hell is this Bravo? Are we really going to have a show about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season One? It appears we are. I’m in. But this had better be good.
Well, we begin straight off with Kim’s alcoholism. On the last day of filming, they were at a huge birthday party for Taylor and Kim was wasted. Apparently, someone from production let Kyle know. Because, it’s apparently Kyle’s job to keep him reasonably sober. Kim stormed off the set drunk and went out to the limo to drink. Kyle went after her and that is when the infamous limo scene went down. Kyle says she just lost it.
Andy didn’t want to do Beverly Hills because they were already doing Orange County. Andy thought they would be too much alike. It all started with Kyle. Kim’s audition tape is all about how Kyle doesn’t think she is good enough. Kim looks 20 years younger. So sad.
Lisa has a signed contract for Giggy. Apparently, this is a real deal. And such a clever way for her to be paid more than the other ladies. Or avoid taxes perhaps. I’m just saying. Lisa also wanted to go by “Pinky” on the show instead of Lisa. The producers told her that Pinky Vanderpump sounded like a bad porn star name and didn’t allow it.
Camille said that she didn’t think Kelsey would want her on the show. Kelsey called production and made sure that RHOBH hired Camille to keep her out of his affair. Continue reading

Nene With RHOBH in Malibu 10/3/15
Nene has taken her ripped jeans to Malibu where she went to dinner with the RHOBH last night. Is that Lisa Rinna in the background being interviewed by a cameraman or am I just looking to hard. Kyle posted the above picture on her Instagram. It seems she has wormed her way into a scene on the show. Did no one tell her the dress code?
It’s sad that I have seen Nobu Malibu on the RHOBH so much that I actually recognize the furniture. So do you think Nene just decided to show up there for dinner and crash the party? Or was she invited by Kyle? Do they even allow jeans in Nobu? Let alone ripped up jeans.
Click through for the photo Nene posted on Twitter.
Oh Happy Days! When that weight has been lifted after years of people tearing you down #gettingbacktome
On this fine Sunday there is a crowd of Bible thumpers telling her that God loves her best and this is a fabulous gift from God. What is exactly? Dinner at Nobu? I don’t get Nene fans. I really don’t. I really hope they keep her in Beverly Hills.
Do you think she will be shown on RHOBH?
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

Andy thinks the Dutch boy is hot. He also thinks that Brandi’s slap was playful. He probably should not rely to heavily on his thinking.
Andy brings up the drama about the Palm Springs house. Because, why not. Andy says that Adrienne is such a sensitive caring person Andy says the sisters had not spoken in four months until the reunion. That’s because Kingsley mauled Kyle’s kid and put her in the hospital! What is wrong with Andrew tonight?
Taylor claims to be very close with Kyle and so she is very upset with Kim. Camille says that Brandi should not be in between the two sisters. Continue reading
