I’m afraid this episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is going to be boring. I’m predicting most taking the kids to college stuff with Yolanda and Kyle. Perhaps I will be pleasantly surprised. I’m not holding my breath.
We begin in Lisa’s bedroom where she is on the phone with Max who has dropped out of music school and is working at SUR. Lisa is upset by Max’s lack of ambition. She and Ken have been giving him a living experience while requiring him to work full-time.
It’s Ken and Lisa’s 32nd anniversary. Ken has filled the house with roses and Lisa makes her usual anniversary sex joke. Max drops by to speak with his parents. Max points out he has no proof of insurance or registration on his car. Max has no work ethic and Ken and Lisa can’t handle it. Ken is pissed with him and walks off. Lisa and Ken are willing to teach him the restaurant business but he needs to be motivate. It seems he was joking about his lack of insurance just to get under their skin.
Eileen’s step sons moved in with Eileen and Vince when they were six and eight. They are now in college. Severin, one of the step sons friends I think , took Gigi Hadid to his senior prom. Eileen’s oldest stepson, Duke is in his senior year. Eileen went straight into acting and missed the college experience. It’s obvious Eileen loves her stepsons and her family
It’s time to take Alexia off to college. She’s going to the University of Arizona. Kyle follows the Tuscon Police on Twitter. Kyle regrets not going to college.
The entire clan including Farrah are staying in a nearby resort promoted by Bravo. Alexia is getting an apartment because she was not able to get into a dorm.
Kyle and Maurico are trying to figure out a budget for Alexia. They decide on $450 a week (all her basic expenses are paid for this is for food and incidentals) Kyle is not sure that is enough. For a freshman in college. Kyle is worried about going through an airport by herself. She’s in college. Kids do that at 10. My brother was flying solo internationally quite frequently in high school. It’s not rocket science. Helicopter moms don’t realize what a disservice they do to their kids.
Alexia has lost her voice. This is mostly because of the climate. I lose my voice every time I go to Vegas. Kyle has a break down leaving her. She can’t even bear to walk her to the limo taking her from the hotel to her new apartment. Mauricio is not holding up much better. They both cry after she leaves.
Yo takes Bella to NYC to attend Parson’s School of Design. It appears she has purchased a Brownstone for Bella. Okay, it’s an apartment. Yolanda is designing the interior and paying all of her expenses. The requisite collection of finger paintings is in place. It’s kind of a cute family tradition.
I do feel the need to point out that I do not have Chronic Lyme Disease, which sounds very debilitating. My health concerns are ongoing but minor in the grand scheme of possibilities. It’s all I can to some days to was a fork. Yet Yolanda who is constantly being hospitalized is well-groomed in full make-up looking beautiful and completely designing the apartment’s interior from top to bottom. This makes no sense to me.
Bella and Yolanda talk about her DUI. Bella gives her mom a sweet card and promises her there is nothing to worry about. Bella is very beautiful in a totally different way that Gigi is beautiful.
Brandi is meeting with her attorney about Eddie’s overpayment of $114,000. Eddie’s retirement account was the last thing to be spilt for just such an occasion. Should there be an overpayment, or an underpayment the retirement account would be adjusted to resolve the issue. This was the plan from the beginning. Eddie turned in a financial accounting indicating an overpayment of $114,000. Brandi did not turn in a financial accounting which means that Eddie’s will be the one the arbitrator uses in the division of the final joint asset (the retirement fund) unless she still has time to turn one in. That’s the background. On the show, Brandi keeps referring to “her retirement account” she doesn’t have a retirement account at all yet. It’s currently still Eddies although he can’t touch it until this matter is resolved. The problem is that Brandi is out earning Eddie at the moment.
Brandi has Kim and Jennifer and two of her gay friends over to watch Eddie and Leann’s reality show premiere and suddenly things turn into The People’s Couch, only we can’t see the show. But if you missed it, you can read my recaps here. It was a pretty cute show. Heavily scripted, but cute. Brandi says the only reason she is watching is to see if the boys are on. She knows they can’t film them without her permission and if they had the boys would have told her. So we all know she’s just curious. I can’t blame her for that. Everyone points out how many times they talk about her. You know, as she is filming her reality show talking about them. In fact this is the second scene in the episode about Eddie.
As they are watching, Leann refers to the boys in some way and that pisses Brandi off. In her talking head she says Leann is a cunt ….tree singer and the still had to bleep the cunt part out. Ridiculous. Brandi says she wants their show to succeed so that he has income to share with her. But Leann needs to leave her kids names out of her mouth. Um, no she doesn’t they are her stepsons who love her. Brandi claims that right now she only gets $1,000 a month child support. I do not believe her.
Lisa is filming a movie with Penn Jillette and Harry Hamlin called Director’s Cut. Lisa is going to play herself with no script. Harry is playing himself playing a cop.
Lisa is hosting a charity party for breast cancer. It’s a costume jewelry line called Stella Dot. Lisa is worried that the ladies will not like costume jewelry. I’m partial to real yellow gold. I do not like fake gold jewelry. I love, love, love funky ethnic beaded jewelry that is not trying to be something it is not. Bold signature necklaces, huge strands of dyed seed pearls, anything made locally when traveling. But I’m not wearing something that is going to change my skin color while it is trying to pretend to be gold.
NEXT WEEK: Brandi is back to being inappropriate and trashy. Kim and Lisa Rinna begin to butt heads, Gigi’s modeling career takes off and Bella gets her portfolio together, Kim and Kyle butt heads and Kyle is worried about Kim’s sobriety, and Kim leaves a poker party at Kyle’s with Brandi and as they are leaving, there is a physical altercation between Brandi and Kyle.
