It’s time for the premier of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and I already very excited. In case you missed it Yolanda Foster announced today that her king is divorcing her.
Holy crap my DVR didn’t record even though I TRIPLE CHECKED IT! and so I have missed the first five minutes. I join the rest of you while Lisa Rinna is getting ready to shoot Oprah Winfrey’s Where Are They Now. Lisa talks about how her longest job was three years on Days of Our Lives and how hard it is to always be looking for work.
Pinky is throwing out the first pitch at a Dodgers game. It’s LGBT night, and even the balls are pink. She actually throws it perfectly, it was just a little bit short.
Eileen is shown on set for Y & R running her lines and getting her wardrobe ready. Her character is in a love triangle with her daughter. She has been in one years before where she was the daughter. She is worried one in her future will be with he as the grandmother.
Eileen is redecorating her house. I knew Brandi’s “American Psycho” comment started this whole thing off. Eileen is a bit of a hoarder and she is starting to edit some things out. Filming started on this right when her father in law Dick Van Patton died. I was quite saddened by that and I don’t even know him. It must have been so hard for the family. Because of the death in the family, Eileen will be unable to attend Lisa’s birthday party.
Kyle is giving me Pam flashbacks looking at $75,000 sunglasses at her store. I just love these ridiculous commercials. Are people who can afford these sunglasses really watching RHOBH on a Tuesday night? Kyle and Pinky meet for lunch. They talk about Yolanda. Pinky says she has texted her trying to see her but she’s never up to it. Lisa says she doesn’t really understand what is wrong with Yo. Lisa, like me, does not think she has been properly diagnosed.
Pinky says that she is not really close to Yolanda anymore since the incident where Yolanda was mean to Ken at that finale party where she accused Ken of grabbing her or whatever. Yet Pinky plans to soldier on because Yolanda is unwell. Hmmm, that is interesting.
Kyle talks about the show she is producing through Warner Brothers about her life growing up in the 70s. Kathy is pissed about the show, according to Kyle. I think Kathy is worried that family secrets will be aired. Kim and Kyle are still not talking. This was after Kim’s arrest at the Beverly Hotel. At this time she is in rehab. Allegedly. They show a montage of Kim being wasted on RHOBH. Kyle says it good to have it all out in the open. Lisa tells Kyle that she has been a great sister to Kim. Kyle seems quite emotional.
At the end of the episode we got a conversation between Kyle and Mauricio about Kim. Kyle is conflicted about whether to reach out to Kim or not. Kyle says that she has to create some separation between Kim and herself for her own wellbeing. But Kyle is feeling guilty the decision. I feel so sorry for Kyle.
We see Yolanda looking very ill. They make sure to let us know that the person treating her is a Naturopathic Doctor. Oh, Yo. Then she admits that she has been living in the condo in the city for the last nine months and not with her refrigerator in Malibu. She starts talking about how her house is just way too big for her. Then we get a facetime to tout Gigi’s career. Interesting. Now Yo has gone from calling it “Chronic Lyme” all these years to calling it “Neurological Lyme.” If she was diagnosed with Neurological Lyme in 2012 why start calling it that in 2015?
Yolanda rattles off all the alternative treatments she has tried. She says she hasn’t driven a car in three years. Then Cody Simpson’s mother shows up to chat with her. Lisa Rinna calls and invites Yo to her birthday party. After the call Yolanda is crying to her friend who is there about her kids being her only reason to go on living. It looks like we are going to see a lot of Yolanda crying. This is so sad.
Lisa’s Birthday Party
Yolanda arrives at the party without a single drop of makeup. This floors pretty much everyone. I have another thought about it which I will not mention. Pinky points out that Yo might have taken ten seconds for a bit of concealer. I think she could have run a lipstick over her lips at least. David is in Seattle. Yolanda usually would say something like “he is Seattle at the behest of the Queen of Holland to write a song for her granddaughter’s christening” or some such. No elaborate explanation today.
The overseas trip this year is in Tuscany and I could not be happier about that.
Yolanda is very sick and leaves after just a few minutes. That is enough to get an episode check. Harry comes in he and Lisa are hysterically funny. Eileen and Vinnie sent a lovely gift to the dinner party. How thoughtful of Eileen to think of her during her family’s grieving. Harry gives Lisa GIANT diamond earrings.
The conversation turned toward Yolanda. Everyone was in shock about how unwell she looked.
Next Week: We’re going to Tuscany! Is it just Kyle and Pinky? And Yolanda’s conversations begin to take a fatalistic turn. We also see David by her side for some new treatment.
I’m not looking forward to Yolanda’s dark place being in every episode. I watch this show for the opposite of that.
