The latest season of Don’t Be Tardy ended on a pretty somber note last night. Kim’s heart problems are no joke and she has a long family history of heart conditions. Because I have lots of heart disease in my family, I could not watch the doctor’s visits. It must be a very scary time for her and you could tell on the show that Kroy is gravely concerned. So I am glad we have this WWHL episode to sort of perk things back up.
Brielle is the bartender. Brielle being “the bartender” is probably her first “job.” There are several wig heads displaying an assortment of Kim’s wigs lined up on the bar with name tags.
They talk about how many selfies takes. We get a montage of just the on camera selfies she took on DBT this season.
Much ado is made about KJ’s potty mouth.
Andy is obsessed with the fact that in 2009 he introduced Kim at an appearance at a gay bar in NYC and that he just realized Erika Jayne did an appearance on that same night. Erika Jayne’s career in the gay clubs has really taken off.
They talk about Kim’s health and I fast forward. I don’t want to even think about all that. It’s Christmas. Let’s lighten up.
So Andy’s light topic go to with Kim is all of her plastic surgery. He says her lips look bigger. Bigger than what? They argue over how long it’s been since she got her lips done. Kim says whatever she does lasts for two years. Are we really going to argue about plastic surgery? Kim has admitted to everything she’s had done. Except for her face work. I hope this isn’t the focus of the show.
YAY! Finally a game about what she thinks of the current housewives.
Andy asks if she was surprised that Cynthia filed for divorce. She says no. Andy asks about Leon, Kim says she doesn’t know anything about that relationship.
Next she is asked if Phaedra knew about Apollo’s fraud when they were together? Um, yeah. How could she not?
She is asked about her feelings for Kenya. She says nothing really but it is clear she is not a fan. This is not news. Kim and Sheree are close. Well, close ISH.
Nene and Kim are fine. They text on occasion. Andy tries to get a comment on Nene’s new nose. Kim sort of says nothing one way or another.
Kim and Sheree are friends, she loves the Chateau. And Andy will bring up the Don’t Be Tardy money until the end of time, but Kandi’s case was deemed to have no merit and was thrown out years ago.
There was more conversation about KJs cussing. He doesn’t do it at school. He recently got the “Most Christlike” award at his school. So suck on that, haters.
Kroy lets us know he is not officially retired and is still a free agent. He is open to opportunities coming his way. Kim wants him to be Kelly’s new LIVE! co host. I don’t think she really would want to move to NYC though. She might, but she would not be able to keep her current lifestyle in Manhattan.
Then we are back to Kim denying her face work. Because maybe if we bring it up a million times she will finally break down and admit it. Or we are just wasting time that could be used more wisely.
Kroy was asked about his first impressions meeting Kim. He said he found her to be a vibrant, straight shooter without any bullshit. Andy agrees. He says Kim is one of the few housewives who has not changed at all during her time on Bravo. She says that Andy hasn’t changed either. He still doesn’t invite her to parties. Apparently, in his book he wrote about a WWHL after party he had in 2015 when Kim was on that she was not invited to.
I just noticed that Kim was served in a red solo cup.
Brielle’s boyfriend has been traded to the White Sox. Can we take a minute to address this dude? Brielle described him on the finale as “tall and not too many muscles but not scrawny.” That was her complete description, followed by, “So yeah, he has everything I’m looking for.” Then we see a short face time were the chef, whose name escapes me is introduced to the boy. He was dull as dishwater. I’d like to say he was stoned out of his mind, but I think that is just his lack of a personality.
The caller wanted to know if Brielle was going to live with him in Chicago during the off season. Kim says she is not living with anyone without a ring. Brielle agreed. I think that relationship is probably over. Andy asks if Brielle has a job. Kim says she is her assistant. Brielle stammers about, thrown by the question and finally responds with, “yeah, I have many.” You know. Kinda like Phaedra and Nene.
Andy takes one more stab at getting Kim to admit her nose job by putting up a season one photo. Still no dice.
What is obvious is that Kim and Kroy are very much in love. I love this family. I wish that DBT would be given an hour. They have the ratings to support it and there are NINE people on the show. Plenty to discuss.
