The RHOBH reunion was filmed on Friday. By all accounts it was a ten-hour ordeal for the gang. Andy said it was the most intense RHOBH reunion in five seasons and that wore him out. It seems he placated the Pump though as sources indicate that Lisa was not the victim this season and became quite aggressive with Brandi. Eileen and Lisa Rinna went hard on Brandi as well. Eileen was mostly composed but not particularly reserved when it came time to go toe to toe with Brandi. Brandi’s own twitter account says that she pissed off “everybody.” Her fans were delighted by the news.
Despite much online chatter about whether or not Yolanda’s health would allow her to attend, there was never any question in my mind that she would. And indeed she did. She may have gotten a few accommodations with breaks and such, but she was there.
Kyle tweeted that the reunion was the toughest one yet. There was a LOT of filming with Kyle and Kim obviously which was traumatic for Kyle I’m sure. I’m not sure if Kim was on the patch or not. She may not even know she was there. Lisa Rinna no longer concerns herself with helping Kim or avoiding hurting her feelings and gives her tough love responses to Kim’s dismissive comments about her.
I forgot to ask about the number or episodes this season. Everything I have says that there are only two more episodes left, the Amsterdam episodes. That seems awfully short. Surely they would have at least one episode left after the trip. That said we have seen most everything from the preview trailer except the altercation between Lisa Rinna and Kim which happens at a dinner in Amsterdam. Kyle leaves a dinner in Amsterdam (probably the one where Lisa and Kim get into it). And Brandi and Kyle also have a big blow up in Amsterdam.
Around the end of the second week of October Adrienne Maloof had a fancy party at LA Supper Club to push her new hangover cure and the entire cast and film crew was there. The Amsterdam trip was during the first week in October. The Maloof event where everyone from Monty (and his current lady friend!) to Kathy Hilton… to I can’t even remember who, was at the time presumed to be the finale. I just can’t find anything on the TV ratings type sites that mention any episodes beyond the next two which were filmed in Amsterdam. I guess it will still air. Perhaps in two episodes stretching the season to 18 regular episodes. Who knows?
The reason why I am interested is that they very rarely film the reunion before the season ends. And if they do, they have a damn good reason. What is the reason? Does Lisa Vanderpump have vacation planned? What else could convince Andy to move up the dates? Ideas?
P.S. In checking up my dates for this story, I realize that I had read and not posted about rumors of Kim’s lack of sobriety for months at the end of last year. It’s sad to see it all play out.
