It’s been a weird news day. So, I’m excited to get back into the RHOBH Recap groove for the season finale. LVP was complaining on social media today that they didn’t show enough of grand entrance into Caesar’s palace on tonight’s episode. So that is reassuring. It just looks like we are going to get too much Camille Grammer. Also, the reunion trailer came out today and it didn’t look that great to me. So hopefully, this will be a great episode.
We start the finale at Kyle’s house. YAY! I love seeing the dogs. And Kim Richards shows up to visit with Kyle. Kyle invites Kim to the finale party but warns her that Lisa Rinna will be there. Kim acts like she has such a full calendar she can’t possibly make it. But I imagine she will be there.
Meanwhile Boy George’s house, PK and Dorit try to spin the bankruptcy stories that are all over the news. Dorit also glosses over the Beverly Beach lawsuit. Then they point out that Camille made her money on her back. PK is not going to the finale party. Because, Camille.
Are we going to go straight to The Agency party? It seems very early to get to the party. Denise and Aaron are still bouncing around hotel rooms unable to occupy their home due to smoke damage. Aaron can barely speak due to smoke inhalation.
Shut It Down!
Camille shows up with an attitude and a couple of backup bitches. She immediately starts yelling at Teddi to “shut it down.” She’s loud and belligerent. Is she drunk? Teddi just walks away. Then Camille starts screaming in Kyle’s face. Kyle is confused because Camille apologized to her and to Denise after the last dinner. Now she is coming in all hot and offended making a scene at Mauricio’s business party.
Out of nowhere, David appears. I hope he’s brought the tranquilizer gun because he’s going to need something. Rinna walks up to the group and asks Camille if she can talk to her. She says not because they all “attacked her” two nights before. Rinna points out that they did no such thing. She reminds Camille that she asked them what their issues with her were, and they told her. Also, Camille apologized. So this sudden turn around is bizarre.
Meeting In The Ladies Room
Rinna reminds us in a talking head that she lost her father while filming a season. She came to work, did her job and no one cut her an inch of slack. Instead, she was accused of being pill popper. Camille seems to think she should not be told of her two-faced behavior even when she asks them what she has done wrong. That’s some very entitled thinking. Plus what Camille really seems upset about is that Rinna pointed out that what she said to the tabloids about LVP and what she says to the RHOBH about LVP is two different things. Rinna stated the facts. Why is Camille playing the victim? She yells at Rinna that she is the real mean girl.
My head hurts from trying to make sense of all the yelling. In the ladies room, Camille whines to her two friends who have clearly been told to never leave her side that is it “So haaaaard, for her to defend herself.” Ugh. Denise goes in the bathroom and tells her she needs to apologize to Dorit. So amazingly, Camille does apologize.
A Hollywood Goodbye
Then it’s time for Teddi and Camille round true. These fights are too stupid to even type out. Teddi didn’t stop on her way to the bathroom in an airport to talk to Camille’s kid? These are real concerns for Camille? Then Denise, who is the closest thing to an ally than Camille has, tries to mediate the situation. Camille goes after Denise and Denise is not having it.
Camille storms off and then goes to hug Lisa Rinna good bye? Wasn’t their last interaction Camille screaming in Rinna’s face that she is the true mean girl? Then she hugs Rinna again and leaves. Camille has to be on something. She is not making any sense.
With Camille gone, it’s time for some fun. Kyle serves the ladies wine that they brought back from Provence. Or so she says, there are no labels on the bottles. All of these girls get along this season. They truly do things together off camera. Except for Erika and Dorit. They are finally enjoying the event and celebrate Mauricio’s success.
Six Months Later…
The six least bitchy women of pack go to Kyle’s house for a gorgeous brunch in her beautiful garden. The food all looks absolutely amazing. This scene right here is was this show used to be about. I love the dishes, the flowers, the salad, all of it. It’s a perfect little garden party.
This is probably going to be the setting for the end notes. First up they show Lisa Vanderpump’s ridiculous arrival to Caesar’s Palace. It was completely over the top, and she was carried in on a litter by gladiators. It may have been even more absurd than the last time someone was carried in on a litter on Bravo. And of course Camille was there to film with LVP.
Rinna says she ran into LVP in a parking lot. She heard LVP say “Oh GOD!” when she saw her. She turned around and she had wet nails and was trying to get out some money to pay for parking. Rinna asked her if she needed money. LVP replied she did not and if she did she would not take her’s. The best part of this scene is Rinna’s laugh with the knee slap. I needed one of those for the road. Especially because it annoys the piss out of the Rinna haters.
Kyle also ran into LVP at Neiman Marcus. She said hello and they spoke briefly. Kyle says she was sorry about the way it all worked out. Teddi points out that everyone at the table has apologized to each other at some point. Everyone except for LVP. Kyle seems to finally realize that she was more invested in the relationship than LVP. She feels she finally has closure to the friendship.
These six ladies all agree that their friendship meant a lot to them this season. It would be great if we could have a season of this without LVP and Camille. I still believe LVP will be back next season, unfortunately.
Denise decided to move out of Malibu and into a new place in Brentwood. Rinna will officially be an empty nester this fall when Amelia starts college. Erika is finally bonding with the other RHOBH, and it’s a beautiful thing to see. Dorit and PK are thinking about moving into Kyle’s new neighborhood. The lawsuits not withstanding, Dorit plans to expand Beverly Beach to include a men’s swimsuit called, “the Andy.” Kyle is currently producing new TV shows and is getting along well with her sisters.
And that is the final RHOBH Recap of the regular season. Next week, it’s time for the reunion.
