I can’t believe it is already the season finale! Sorry for the late RHOBH recap. I am so far behind on everything right now I can’t seem to get caught up. I feel like I am trying to keep 100 plates spinning and they are all crashing down. It’s exhausting. But I am very excited for this episode!
Oh wait, now that I think about it, I am so sick of hearing about Denise and Brandi and threesomes. I really thought after a couple of episodes of that nonsense, we would move on to other things. Why is production on all the real housewives shows suddenly deciding to pick one boring thing and then making it into some sort of season long scandal? Between my Covid brain and my POS new laptop, typing is a challenge.
Christmas At Dorit’s House
Finally, I get some Kyle. I did not get enough of her this season. She’s putting some of her yacht wear in Sutton’s store. That’s a great idea! It took me all season to really warm up to Sutton, but I like her now. I think she was just nervous in the beginning. Garcelle is producing a new movie. All of these things could have been great storylines. Dorit is planning a housewarming for herself in her new rental. What is with this trend, didn’t Karen Huger just do that? Anyway, the housewarming will apparently be the finale party. Why does PK need to know the whole Denise and Brandi story. PK needs a better makeup artist. Erika is in NYC for Broadway. Are we not going to see the ladies go to NYC?
OOOOOO! It’s Christmas at Dorit’s house! I love Christmas! I am feeling better already! I love the tree and the nutcracker! Everyone is super dressed up for this shindig. Sutton’s dress is ridiculous. Lots of friends of the show are there including Faye and Adrienne. Garcelle and Chocolate Michael are supposed to pick up Denise but she is not picking up their calls. As these two wait outside, the conversation turns to…diamonds. It seems she is ready to get married. Maybe next season? Do you think she would be a bridezilla? They decide to head to the party without Denise.
Garcelle Is A Player!
I love that Kyle and Garcelle eat actual food. Garcelle also has her eye on one of the caterers that she first spotted at Kyle’s party. She’s flirting with him five minutes after asking Michael for a diamond. Meanwhile poor Michael is chatting with Sutton’s boyfriend about a proposal. Garcelle!!! Dorit says that Camille reached out to her
to try to get some air time and she is not interested in talking to her. Apparently, Denise and Camille met to film the day before. That has everyone confused. Oh look! Brandi Glanville has crashed the party! Shocker.
Brandi always manages to look like a hooker. Apparently, she is Kim’s plus one. Wait, the nonalcoholic champagne is pink. Why is Kim drinking the white one? Maybe they are both non-alcoholic. Anyway, Brandi is the reason that Denise bailed. She sent her mean texts and probably told her she was going to be at the party. When Garcelle leaves, she asks production what happened with Denise. They got a text from Aaron saying there was a family emergency and she’s not coming. Garcelle is sort of pissed. Production agrees it is not cool for her to bail.
How Do We Solve A Problem Like Denise?
A few days later, Rinna, Garcelle and Dorit meet for drinks to talk about Denise. Denise needs a raise if she comes back next season. This has been the season of Denise. I just zoned out looking at Garcelle’s food order. It was bone marrow and lots of other stuff. And she’s no fool she is eating. Rinna and Dorit must be grateful that Garcelle flavored the air they are having. Garcelle says Denise stood her up for a shopping date at the last minute the previous day. Dorit says she got a text from Denise apologizing for missing her party. Rinna is pissed that Dorit has not contacted her at all.
When Denise filmed with Camille, Camille was trying to turn Denise against Rinna. It seems to have worked. Garcelle seems to be trashing Rinna to Denise as well. Aaron apparently posted a photo of Denise in a hospital bed wearing a blue hair covering the day after Dorit’s party. WTF? Apparently, the photos were from her hernia surgery months before. This whole season has been confusing. Then we find out that Denise sent cease and desist letters to all the cast and production. What are they supposed to be ceasing and desisting about?
Rinna And Denise Have A Final Showdown
Oooooh Denise is going to film with Rinna at her house! They are both super pissed with each other. This should be good. Also, now I see why Dorit’s big season finale party was truncated. Dorit must be pissed. It starts with a big hug. Denise thanks Rinna for letting her come over multiple times. They both say they miss each other. Denise wants to know if she knew that Brandi was going to be at Dorit’s party. She says she didn’t. Rinna points out that everyone was worried about her. Denise says she responded to Dorit and Garcelle. Rinna points out that she didn’t respond to HER. Denise admits the obvious that there was no family emergency.
Then she claims she didn’t get Rinna’s text. Now Rinna is heated. She also thinks that Denise is lying to her about her relationship with Brandi. Denise told Rinna that she barely knows Brandi. But Brandi showed everyone a very long text chain between the two. This is why Rinna is not sure what to believe at this point. Denise says in an interview that there is an app that can revise text messages. Look, y’all are going to have to explain that if it is true. But I feel like once they are on your phone, they are on your phone. Now, I feel like Denise is lying. Denise says she has seen Brandi four times in her life. She’s an acquaintance.
Denise Makes It Obvious She Was With Brandi
The more Denise talks, the more she looks like the liar. And Rinna is holding her feet to the fire. Wow, In Denise’s talking head she threatens to release texts from both Brandi and Rinna. Denise seems awfully worked up about this. If someone accuses you have having a threesome and it’s not true, why not just say, “Yeah, it was fabulous!” Throwing a fit about it for the entire season just draws more attention.
Denise gets super pissed when she finds out everybody knows she tried to get the footage about the three way taken out of the show. Again, stupid move. If she would have just laughed it off it would have blown over. But her freaking out about it proved it to be true. Denise tries to pivot to making it about protecting her kids. Come on. They’ve survived hookers at Thanksgiving with dad. They will be fine. Yet, somehow, Brandi has managed to destroy this decades old friendship in an attempt to get airtime.
The Wrap Up
Oh Yay! We are going to get to go to NYC! Sutton has rented a private plane to take Kyle, Teddi and Rinna to see Erika on Broadway! Dorit is flying in from Mexico. Garcelle chose not to come. That’s interesting. Next we see Garcelle and her boys out protesting. And we find out that she broke things off with Michael. Teddi has a beautiful baby girl she named, Dove. Unfortunately, Dove has some serious medical complications to get through. Denise is back filming Bold and the Beautiful and Aaron is working as a stand in on the love scenes. Rinna dancing on Instagram (and posting nudes). Dorit, is still Doriting.
So, what do you think? Will Denise show up for the reunion?
