The best thing about this season being over is that Brandi’s ghostwriter, who clearly gets paid by the word will soon shut the fuck up. It’s not that these blogs aren’t hysterical. They are, but they are so absurd they are mildly infuriating. When someone hires another to spew their lies and delusions is that their way of distancing themself from the bullshit? Does she really not know she is lying and deluded? Does she not know she has a drinking problem? Does she really not get that she burns bridges with everyone that tries to be her friend? It’s sort of infuriating not to be sure if she is evil and calculated, or legitimately mentally ill.
At any rate, the ghost writer has shat out another 1500 or so words this week and I am going to take look at them.
She has upped the ante on the opening with some proclamation of love for her sons. This week she talks about how the horrific plane crash in Europe caused her to modify her “flight prayer” to include Leann Rimes. I’m not making this up. Perhaps her new ghostwriter is that idiot at the FishWrapper? Anyway, let’s just skip over the bullshit for future courtroom use, and stick with the bullshit about the show.
As I look over this past season, all I can say is it’s been an odd one. There were so many fun moments that got lost in the drama and so many weeks of fun you never saw at all. I wish you had, but I’m not in control of everything we get to see. I’d like to remember having fun with Kim “stalking” my now boyfriend J.R. That was such a crazy fun girls’ night, Lisa R. being chased by killer bees, Yolanda and her Facetime confusion and meeting her family for the second time this–time in Holland, the Foster Foundation Extravaganza, “singing” at Lisa V.’s birthday party, and Kyle pretending to be a caring sister and owning yachts and planes…haha. Ok, I’ll behave.
Yes, of course, you and Kim stalking people and hiding in potted plants, Lisa being chased by bees, Yolanda suffering mental confusion due to a chronic illness, calling Lisa Vanderpump and her birthday guests menopausal mamas, and insulting Kyle repeatedly are all super fun things we didn’t get to see enough of.
Here we are at the last episode of the season, yet, it seems most are still stuck in the beginning. I wish we weren’t, and I would dearly like to leave “Poker Night” behind. However, one person continues to make it the focal point of every interaction from when it happened and far into the three-part reunion.
Would that be the person who was stuck in a car for an hour with a drug addict on pain pills behaving erratically? I can’t believe this would be something she would want discuss with the group.
This episode opens with Rinna tearing down a swing set, but her home interviews are still about what she perceives as Kim’s issues to be, not the actual touching moment of what the swing set tear-down symbolizes or her own family (I can’t wait for her daughters to write their Brooke Shields-style memoir when they are age appropriate).
Lisa Rinna’s girls will be literate enough to write their own tell all book, Brandi’s boys come from a shallow gene pool and are “homeless” moving from school to school so their book about their drunk mama will have to be written by Kristine. She really should be plugging it here now, while she has the chance.
LR says she feels sorry for Kim and cares about Kim and wishes Kim well. The truth is a lot less pretty. Some people have been attacking Kim’s sobriety online this week, but we won’t name names. BTW, Kim is sober and not online. She is busy caring for serious ill family members and driving back and forth to doctors and hospitals and being strong for her family.
I think Brandi gave us a pretty good idea of what addicts do when a family member is seriously ill on the finale. Hopefully, the reason Kim is not online is because she is back at Circe Lodge. I didn’t see anything about Kim being at the hospital with her family when her mutt tried to bite her niece’s hand off. It seems she disappeared then too.
Next we see Nicky Hilton’s book signing–sister Paris and mom Kathy Hilton are there. Looks like a great party and congrats to Nicky on her style book. Camille looks gorgeous as usual. Kyle angrily flips her hair, because Kim was wearing a shirt that she carries at “her” shop, but didn’t buy it there…whatever. Then Kyle whispers about her sister Kim to Lisa V. and Camille. Kyle then tells them she is confused and impatient that Kim hasn’t confronted me over her third-hand Lisa R. gossip. She states Kim WILL be hurt and broken hearted over what “I” said… Kyle seems way too overy excited about that happening, which I find kind creepy. Why would anyone WANT their sister to be hurt or in pain?!
Hoping that your addict sister recognizes that her new alcoholic BFF doesn’t have her best interest at heart is not wanting someone to be in pain. It’s called trying to protect her.
The preparations for Adrienne’s party are in full swing next. Lisa V. is fretting it, Kim is casually discussing the intervention GOSSIP with her makeup artist before the party, I’m getting ready and waiting for my friends and my date.
Did I miss the friends and the date? I think the dude that came with you is the hairdo gay that shows up for TV time when you are filming and squats wherever you are squatting for the season. Do consider him Brandi’s friend or her date?
Adrienne’s party is the big finale of our journey this year. Everyone is there, and Adrienne always excels at events.
LOL. “Adrienne always excels at events.” Has Kristine watched this show?
So here we go. First off, my mind was not on the party at all. My father was recently hospitalized, and I didn’t leave his side for two weeks.
Really? Because Brandi was tweeting from all over the place and filming Steve Harvey and filming the RHOBH. So maybe you Facetimed for two weeks?
It was very serious, but I had to return home to my boys. He was still not conscious, but I needed to get home to run my household–a party was the last place I wanted to be, but I had promised. That’s why I decided to bring the few people that I felt I could depend on in that moment. My friends and J.R. have been there for me during my father’s health scare and over more then a month of hospitalization–that was and is what remains what’s important to me.
See if you want this to be your spin you have to not say tell us what you are really doing on Twitter when all of this is going on. Otherwise you just look foolish.
The party seems like it was fun for a lot of people who weren’t involved in Kyle and Lisa. R.’s drama. I wish I were one of them, but in a way I was. As much as Kyle relished telling Kim the hurtful gossip she heard from LR, what she wanted to happen didn’t happen. There was no argument between Kim and I. We were happy to see each other. We spoke easily. I was busy worrying about my Dad; she was busy with her family.
Delusion, Party of Two, your table is ready. You and your ghost writer may have a seat now.
What we saw on the finale was an efficient Kim quietly confronting Lisa R., then leaving Lisa R.’s table somewhat amused. Lisa R. couldn’t confirm the veracity of her gossip, because I DIDN’T SAY IT. Thanks again to Bravo for showing the truth in a flashback last week.
I love how the Bravo web site admin always posts the actual conversation each time Kristine writes this below the actual denial. It’s a lovely juxtaposition of fact and fiction.
So, Kim knew who was who and what was what. The entertainment of the night was provided by Lisa R. going radio silent while Kyle begged for corroboration on her dramatic intervention gossip. Watching Yolanda, Eileen, and Lisa V. urge Lisa R. to support Kyle and verify her hurtful gossip was almost amusing. You can’t confirm what didn’t happen, can you?
I hope they play the scene at the reunion frame by frame for Brandi. And Kim.
In the end, I left the party early. Why? Not because of a past friendship with Lisa V. It’s not her that made me cry–I was crying for my father, my dad! I was in no place to be at a superficial party, discussing a superficial incident with a person who was clearly not a friend, not that night. I said I would show up, and I did. After that, I wanted to be with my real close friends and family. Since this party my dad came out of the ICU and after 2 entire months and after a long stressful time I want to thank Dr. Allen Morris and all the doctors and nurses at Mercy General Hospital of Sacramento for saving my dad’s life yet agin for the second time in 15 years. He is doing much better and continuing his hope of a full recovery. I am so thankful to all the people who were there for me and continue to be here for my family and I.
Spellcheck. My family and me. Who are these “real close friends?” They should have an intervention.
THAT is what life’s about, being with the people who truly love and care about you and the feelings are reciprocated.
As you hear, at the end of the finale, I am wistful, yet, wiser, and I think in a stronger place. I love and loved being there for Kim and being Kim’s friend, and I love that she was, is, and has been here for me. Even more so, I’m grateful and blessed to have Yolanda in my life; she is no bullsh–. Even when suffering herself, she is still so selfless. Yo is very special to me, I love her, she gets me, we have fun together, and I value every moment we spend together. I always will. As for the rest, I hope to share laughs and fun again, maybe tears, but hopefully only joy.
This reads as funny until you realize how deeply sad it is. Do you think Brandi actually pays Kristine for this?
