I was hoping for some better production on RHOBH since Atlanta and Jersey have both been a hot mess this season. However, before the show even starts they’ve done something stupid. Apparently, they could not come up with any new titles and decided to call this episode Stronger Than Ever. This is the exact same name as the first episode of last season. So all the cable networks are pulling up the season seven show information and calling this episode a repeat from 2016. I’d also like to point out that Stronger Than Ever is a dumb title in the first place and surely not worthy of using twice.
The good news is that we will have four trips this season and the first one begins tonight when the girls take a birthday trip to Vegas. They will also go to fashion week in NYC, take an all cast to Berlin, and Erika and Rinna will jet off to Tokyo with Erica’s girls who had a big modeling gig there.
Have we ever seen Erika’s closet? It’s to die for. Erika is thrilled that she has been parodies on SNL. They’ve actually done her at least twice. She had to know about the first time because they played Expen$ive, and she would have gotten a check for that. Right? Kyle and LVP both say they never got to go see Erika on DWTS.
Rinna’s kids are still kinda bratty. Shocker.
For some reason Dorit is going to be introducing Teddi to the group. It’s clear this is the first time they have met. Dorit’s weird accent thing is already driving me bonkers. Dorit tell Teddi about one of her best friends, Lisa. Oh Lord.
Kyle has shown us two new Birken bags in the first twenty minutes. Erika says that DWTS was a huge challenge for her, but she’d love to do an All Stars because now she knows how the game is played. I’d love to see her back on.
Birthdays are the new vaginal rejuvenation of Bravo production companies. I heard RHOA was thinking about doing a 50th party for Nene even though her birthday didn’t fall during the filming season. I don’t think they did though. The premise for the Vegas trip is that Erika, Dorit and Rinna all have birthdays around the same time. Rinna and Erika are not really down with Dorit, but an all cast trip is an all cast trip. Usually.
We are getting a lot of Teddi interviews. I’m not sure how I feel about her just yet.
Dorit and PK are still acting like the own the house they lived in. She’s telling us that they lived in Miami for five months while it was renovated. Now there is this big production about moving back in. The thing is if she is claiming that this is the same house as last season, the actual owners sold the house months ago. In other bizarro Dorit story line news, she takes Teddi to lunch to meet LVP and talk about horses. LVP invites Teddy to Vegas. Dorit poisons the pot with Teddi about Rinna and Erika. As it turns out Teddi has a birthday this week too.
The ladies all meet up at the airport. Except for Lisa Rinna who is in NYC with her kids but is going to try to get there. In fact she calls to let Kyle know she will be flying into Vegas that night. One the flight, Vanderpump spills an entire drink in Kyle’s new Birkin bag. Kyle and LVP share the Presidential Suite. There is a weird scene where Kyle brings up keeping her friendship with Rinna separate from her relationship with her sister. Then she says she saw Harry Hamlin while out hiking and he told her that she needs to do something about her sister and she needs to never be around the girls again. Are we going to blame Rinna for Kim not being on RHOBH this season? She is not going to be on at all, and I found that a little odd. In other news, Kim was back in court this week and apparently petted enough horses to meet her 450 hours of community service. Now all she has to do is stay out of trouble for another year and her arrest issues will be behind her. Kyle doesn’t appear to care for Rinna much this season.
Dorit has been taking a glam squad with her every time she travels with the show ever since she found out that Erika brings hers. It so ridiculous. She doesn’t have anywhere near the money that Erika has.
We end with the arrival of Rinna to the presidential suite where everyone except Erika Jayne has already arrived.
Next week: The Vegas trip is in full swing and Erika’s already being a bitch to Teddi. I hope we don’t get bitchy, stuck-up DWTS Erika Jayne this season. The group seems to already be aligning against Rinna this season.
