It’s time for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to go to Paris. I love Paris! I haven’t been there in three years and it is time to go back. I am having to rewrite this paragraph because WordPress ate it. Essentially what happened was Kim and Kyle went to a little intervention with Taylor to discuss her drinking. Kim told her that she was seeing signs of a drinking problem in Taylor and felt the need to address especially because she seems to not be keeping a close eye on Kennedy. Taylor pretty much admitted she uses alcohol as a crutch to get her through some of the rough times and agrees to start watching herself. However, in her blog last week she made a snarky comment about Kim thinking she was Dr. Drew so it seems that she was irritated by it and based on her appearance on WWHL recently, she’s not doing much in the way of self monitoring.
Meanwhile at Villa Rosa, Ken is feeding the swans. Ken’s son Warren lives in St. Tropez and Lisa and Ken are going to see him. Of course they are taking Giggy. Lisa is showing everything to Ken before packing and he is going is giving the obligatory, “I love everything!” husband response.
Yolanda is at Mohamed’s house getting ready for a housewarming party to show the housewives the new house. Yolanda explains that Mohamed is not the faithful type and that didn’t work well for a proper Dutch girls like her. All the girls are at the house except Adrienne who cancelled. Brandi is thrilled and so am I. David discovers that Marisa has been married for 16 years and he says to her husband, “It’s about time for a change!” This of course sends Marisa off on another tangent of how she is ready for some strange. I don’t expect this marriage to last. In fact it reminds me of Adrienne emasculating Paul at every turn.
Yolanda is the excuse for the Paris trip. Suddenly, everyone is going to Paris! How convenient! Sigh. Taylor is not going because she
would miss her boyfriend wants to do something with Kennedy because it is almost time for school to start. Does that sound like production did not invite her to you? It does to me. Yolanda confronts Taylor and tells her that all of the girls are saying she has an issue with her. Taylor has that deer in the headlights look. Or you know, her usual expression. In her talking head, Taylor says that her issue is with David because she used to be married to one of Taylor’s best friends but that she doesn’t want to address it at the party. David plays the piano and people are talking! They cut to France without showing any admonishment.
Lisa, Ken and Giggy arrive at his son’s house in Saint Tropez. They sit out in gardens and drink champagne. Warren is very wealthy as the result of real estate investments. Ken’s grandson is 21 and just graduated from college. Warren’s wife is much older and was friendly with Lisa before they married. When Lisa and Ken said they were in town for three days, the wife said, “Three whole days we’ve got to put up with you?” and Lisa looked a bit taken aback despite the fact the wife was kidding. Sort of. Maybe. Lots of family bonding on the beach. it’s obviously beautiful there.
They are flying Air Tahiti to Paris? West coasters are so weird. It took me awhile to understand why it took Lisa and Ken so long to get to Saint Tropez. Poor west coasters have a five-hour handicap to get to Europe. Marisa calls and says she can’t come to Paris because her father-in-law passed away and they found out about it on the way to the airport.
Did Lisa just say she is only five years older than Warren? Warren got Lisa and Ken a helicopter to the airport as they live four hours by car to the airport. That doesn’t seem right to me. Meanwhile they are staying at the Lutetia I’ve been there, it is in the seventh arrondissement , or perhaps into the sixth not too far from where I usually stay. It’s a nice hotel but not where I would stay if I was a Beverly Hills Housewife. I imagine the five-star hotels would not allow them to film. They are there on Bastille Day. That must be fantastic! Kim us the last one to the balcony to watch the fireworks and appears drunk. Apparently next week we will have another reasonable explanation for her behavior.
Meanwhile I am disappointed this is part one of two Paris episodes, we just barely got there this episode!
