Tonight’s RHOBH recap will cover multiple dinners but nothing will compare to the one that Kathy Hilton and her fleet of butlers and assorted staff put together. Unfortunately, that is the one that turns into the dinner party from hell. The first dinner party from hell was at Camille’s house when she invited “psychic” Allison Dubois to insult everyone at the table while vaping. I have attached a clip at the end of this recap if you need to refresh you memory. But before we get to the dramatic dinner party from hell this week, we have a whole bunch of filler scenes to get through. And you know the majority of Kathy’s dinner will probably be on next week’s episode.
Go Duck Yourself, Erika!
We start with Dorit talking to PK about her fake “clothing line.” Apparently, now she’s “designing wedding dresses.” PK is naming all the dresses the most ridiculous things. PK calls Tom Girardi “a bad guy.” Kyle stops by to see Suttons new $5M+ house she has been renovating while renting Kyle’s old house. It’s so not finished. As Kyle’s says it looks like she is going to be making a lot of money off of her. Sutton is paying, I believe $20k a month to rent her house. And that is probably the friends and family rate. Sutton is ready to come for Erika. She’s over her bitchy attitude. Sutton knows the story about Tom’s accident story is bullshit.
Erika stops by Crystal’s house for some dim sum and duck. I have to say at this point, Crystal is settling in nicely. She seems to have found her place with these women and made some friendships Kathy Hilton is there too! She was late because she was busy “cleaning the sliver and crystal.” She claims she does it herself. I do not believe her. She has “people.” Garcelle is also invited to the dinner. Erika feels betrayed by Sutton. Kathy makes some snide remarks about Sutton’s country club in Augusta. You know, the one, Augusta National, that hosts the Masters Golf Tournament every year? Tons of celebrities are members. But that is NOT Sutton’s issue. Her issue is her extensive charity work and her reputation THERE. Garcelle is not participating in the Sutton trash talk. In fact she is pissed.
Kyle’s 25th Anniversary Dinner With Mauricio Was Beautiful
It is Mauricio and Kyle’s 25th wedding anniversary. They have thrown the kids out of the house (why haven’t we seen Portia this season?) . Mauricio has put a message on his phone that he is spending the evening with his wife on their anniversary and he will return calls tomorrow. These two just want to stay in and be together. Kyle is one lucky women. Sigh. Mauricio has set up a very romantic dinner at home. There are roses and candles everywhere! Mauricio gets better looking every year. They talk about Erika a bit and neither one wants to believe she had anything to do with the fraud. But she did.
Later, Kyle tries to call Kathy to figure out what to wear. Kathy is hilariously talking to her staff instead of Kyle so she gets no advice. Garcelle calls Sutton. Garcelle is dressed and Sutton is not. Sutton says it doesn’t take her long to look beautiful. She can do it in 20 minutes. She doesn’t need two hours of glam. This is why I love her. She tells Garcelle that they have to stand up for themselves at the dinner. Sutton plans to let Erika know that she is not buying what she is selling. You do that, Sutton, bless your heart.
Kathy Hilton’s Dinner Party Is A Beautiful Mess
Kathy Hilton is running around putting the finishing touches on her party. She inspects everything right down to the soap and toilet paper in the bathrooms. Her pet peeve is people who arrive early. Naturally, Rinna arrives early and has a hilarious encounter with the butler. I really hate her hairdo for the dinner. I went to a great deal of trouble to get the photo above. It’s like Elvis hair! I like her regular normal hairstyle and I wish people would stop asking her to change it up! Dorit’s braided ponytails might be even worse. I LOVE Sutton’s quirky, expensive designer stuff. She loves a splash of whimsy. I am here for it! LISA RINNA ATE A CHEESE PUFF! I REPEAT! LISA RINNA ATE A CHEESE PUFF! I would eat all the cheese puffs!
As the head to the dinner table, several guests head to the bathroom leaving Erika, Kyle and Sutton at the table. #production Sutton says this gives her a good opportunity to talk to Erika. Erika, who is standing up says, “What are you trying to do?” And here we go. Erika doesn’t have any desire to clear the air. She is aware of what Sutton thinks and her opinion of her doesn’t matter. Erika walks off to the restroom. The ladies come and sit for dinner. Course one is some kind of caviar pie (I’d pass on that) and vodka (I’d pass on that too). I know, I know I am uncivilized. Dorit tries to clear the air (or perhaps reopen the issue) with Garcelle. Kathy is not having it. She just wants to enjoy dinner. Good luck with that.
Can We Please Just Eat This Dinner?
Well, we are not even to the second course yet and Rinna wants to send the staff bell around the table for some sort of airing of grievances. Really? Sutton says she tried to have a conversation with Erika but she was not receptive. They start getting into it and course two comes out. It’s rack of lamb with mixed vegetables. Yes, please. Sutton starts talking about her ex husband Christian. I know someone very wealthy who knows Christian and he says he is extremely well off. Coming from him… that says a LOT. Sutton claims she and her husband built their company from the ground up. Erika says her situation with Tom and the fraud doesn’t affect Sutton.
Then, in an unexpected turn of events, Dorit chimes in to say that her situation affects all of them. Every time an article is written their names are all dragged into it. Isn’t she on the Fucking Fox Five boat? I’m shocked! Erika Says there will be a day when this is all behind her and she is going to remember who was with her, and who was against her. Sutton says she is not against her. Garcelle says it is human nature to wonder if she could be dragged in to the mess. Apparently, Erika is tearing up because Garcelle tells her not to cry. Garcelle tells her she doesn’t like the way Erika is looking at her. She tries to wipe Erika’s tears and she jerks away. Erika thinks they are all torturing her because they are talking about the victims.
Look At Me!
Erika tells Dorit to look at her. Look at her life. She has tears on her face. It’s very tense and said. I am looking at those giant diamond earrings in her ears. That’s what I am looking at. And her glam and heavy dark makeup. Dorit says she can’t bear this. It is breaking her heart. Erika asks her why she is doing this to her? Why are you all doing this to me! It’s very dramatic and dark. She says that every time she comes to these events the shit gets kicked out of her for something she didn’t even do. Oh yes you did honey, yes you did.
Kyle tries to say that this is all about Sutton wanting to have an honest conversation with her. No one is tormenting her. Kyle tries to throw Sutton under the bus. And it works. Kyle says that Sutton said that she thinks Erika has lied. AND SHE HAS, KYLE! Then Rinna joins in on the whole throw Sutton under the bus situation. WOW. These two. Sutton straight up tells Erika that she is lying about the car accident. AND SHE IS!!! ANYONE WITH A BRAIN COULD SEE THAT! Erika gets really riled up. She tells Sutton she is not a liar. She says Sutton has a lot of fucking nerve. Sutton tells her not to talk to her in that way. Erika says, the infamous at this point, “Or WHAT? OR WHAT?” line. Because a hit dog will howl.
And it is there that my DVR cut off, but I am sure we will pick up from there next week. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts!
