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.

Once again, I have blocked this hot mess of a season out of my mind. With three franchises of housewives going, we all seem to be suffering from housewives fatigue. The RHOBH however are not fatigued at all. LVP has taken time away from her pet cause of regulating the dietary habits of a small Chinese village to get into it with Eileen on Twitter. Eileen told LVP to get a conscience after LVP suggested Eileen get a life. It was all very “Fix that body! Fix that face!” Since the last episode I have blocked an estimated five hundred LVPlunatics who gleeful drilled me down to discover that my commenters paid for my lawyer in the Sheree Whitfield lawsuit and the fact that I think it is poetic justice when someone who lives off of millions acquired by knowingly selling snake oil to cancer patients then gets cancer and needs appropriate treatment. Shocking secrets all.
So let us gird our loins and prepare for LVP to cry and play the victim role and Andy Cohen to drag an alcoholic back on stage and interrogate her about “her lowest point.” That question to Kim can’t help but make me wonder what Andy Cohen’s lowest point was? I’d say the way he is treating Yolanda and Kim on this reunion has to be a major part of his moral abyss.
We begin with Yolanda storming off the set in tears. Daisy is in the makeup room to dry Yolanda’s tears. Erika goes back to the couches to fight for Yolanda’s honor. Yolanda comes back out. Andy asks Yolanda who she believes. Yolanda says she has a history of manipulating people to make a good storyline and it’s possible that LVP said that. Rinna walks off yelling at LVP to “own it!” Eileen chimes in.

First of all, I have a lot of respect for Eileen for even writing a blog this week. So far she and Kathryn (I have not read) are the only two blogs posted since the reunion. For me, I tend to base my opinion on a situation where one person says something was said and the person accused of saying it denies it on a couple of things. In the case of Lisa Rinna we have someone whose mouth gets her in trouble because she says exactly what she’s thinking. Last season she told the truth about Kim Richards. Kim Richards was high as a kite and quite aggressive and agitated on a long van ride with Lisa Rinna last season. I would most likely have asked the van to be pulled over, gotten out and called an Uber to take me home. Being trapped in a confined space with someone who is on drugs is a very scary thing. Rinna was very honest about what went down and much less dramatic about it than I would have been. While most people simply muttered about Kim’s “situation” Rinna called it what it was, someone with an active addiction problem. She told the truth.
This season, we have Yolanda with her constantly changing illnesses and co-infections. She claims everything from brain swelling to two foot parasites to explain her bizarre behavior. She talked about the batshit crazy in the room. She never said Yolanda was not sick. She never said Yolanda had Munchausen syndrome. She basically said, “Something ain’t right with Yolanda.” For most people with a fully functioning brain, this is once again stating the obvious and telling the truth. I don’t think she went far enough with the Munchausen conversation. I think she should have listed the symptoms
- Dramatic but inconsistent medical history
- Unclear symptoms that are not controllable and that become more severe or change once treatment has begun
- Predictable relapses following improvement in the condition
- Extensive knowledge of hospitals and/or medical terminology, as well as the textbook descriptions of illnesses
- Presence of multiple surgical scars
- Appearance of new or additional symptoms following negative test results
- Presence of symptoms only when the patient is with others or being observed
- Willingness or eagerness to have medical tests, operations, or other procedures
- History of seeking treatment at numerous hospitals, clinics, and doctors offices, possibly even in different cities
- Reluctance by the patient to allow doctors to meet with or talk to family, friends, or prior doctors
- Problems with identity and self-esteem
I’m not a doctor, but I have observed the vast majority of those symptoms on this season of RHOBH. So for people to now be acting like Rinna is spreading nasty gossip is unreasonable. For me, It’s not a character flaw to tell the truth. It’s not a character flaw to feel badly for the telling of that truth to have negatively impacted others. It also not a character flaw to be pissed of that a person or people who were thinking and saying the exact same things would deny their involvement.
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.

Andy is so excited that Erika out to NYC on her plane that she is on the show. I can’t remember who else was going to be on but, I’m pretty sure it wasn’t Erika. I’m glad she is though. Erika says she has her boobs out to suck up to the boss and she always has a jump suit to wear for him. Erika just did a show in Palm Springs and Yolanda just got back from Tahiti. Yolanda says she should have just moved to Tahiti. The color of blue Yolanda is wearing looks stunning on her. Her tan is fabulous. Both ladies look fantastic!
Andy starts right off asking what they though of Ken calling Rinna vile names on tonight’s RHOBH episode. Yolanda says she has heard it before. He’s called her a bitch. It’s no secret Ken doesn’t like Yolanda either. Yolanda says she wasn’t happy about it. Erika says the reunion was everything she was told it would be.
The poll is who is the biggest shitstirer of the season. I can see the LVP fans sputtering spittle while rapidly texting for Rinna.
Andy asks Yolanda if she is still “Fonda” each housewife. Rinna,”no”. LVP, “not really”. Kyle, “Medium.” Eileen, “Yes.” Kathryn “Yes” Erika.”Yes” Ken “Yeees. I don’t have a problem with Ken.”
The very first caller wants to know why they believe Lisa Rinna over LVP. Yolanda says she thinks they are both to blame. Erika says that she believes Rinna heard about the topic of Munchausen from someone and LVP encouraged her to bring it up on camera. I hope this is the last post I will have to write about explaining this because some people just don’t want to understand the situation.
A caller asks Yolanda what she has in the vault. Yolanda says just experiences that she has with the women. She feels strongly that there are things you don’t speak about on national TV.
