It’s time for the RHOBH Reunion Part 3! Also, tonight, we have Winter House and Survivor! It’s a good night for TV and it is a good night at Chez Tamara Tattles! Banjo and I both had good days at the same time. I even ate for the first time in weeks and did some of the dishes! So, I’m ready for this RHOBH recap. I’m not expecting too much tonight. Generally, the penultimate reunion episode is full of filler. But, this is a Felon by Bravo season of RHOBH…so we shall see.
We return to the cryfest between Kyle and Kathy over their spilt over Kyle producing American Woman. I am glad we swiftly move on to Kathy’s funny behavior on the show. Garcelle says she and her sister Carole are estranged and seeing Kathy and Kyle reconnect is making her think she needs to do the same. Later in the show, we see a montage of all of Kathy Hilton’s antics. Kathy Hilton and her family once lived in the Waldorf Hotel for nine years. Rick Hilton has no financial interest in the Hilton hotel chain. It was sold by the family many years ago.
Remember Crystal Kung Minkoff?
She was on the show this season as a full-time housewife. Crystal backs off her tale about being a madam at an escort service. She worked for an advertising company who made headshots for the sex workers. We move on to the second most interesting thing about Crystal, the ugly leather pants. But, move quickly to VIOLATION! Good grief. Crystal’s mom found out about the severity of Crystal’s eating disorder by watching it on TV. Crystal and Sutton are on good terms now and hang out off camera. Next, Crystal talks about growing up with racism. She still gets hundreds of threats a day from racists who prey on Asians. Everyone says that they love Crystal. Bet she didn’t get invited to the Fucktard five after party though.
We have a whole montage of the over the top glam and spending. A reader said it was not smart of Rinna to tell the world she had thousands of dollars in vintage designer dresses stored in her garage. Andy called her right after he saw the footage and said the same thing. She has since moved it to a special vintage storage place. Is that really a thing? Probably so in Beverly Hills. Garcelle says Dorit has the best fashion sense. Dorit claims she pays retail for everything she wears. Andy is shocked she doesn’t get discounts or free stuff for wearing it on the show. Crystal’s friends bought her a few Birkin bags.
Andy Puts Erika Back In The Hot Seat
Lot’s of footage of Erika’s lies and Erika coming for everyone who dared to question them. It ends with Erika’s ominous threat saying that she will remember who was with her and who was against her once this is all over. Andy asks her to say who is with her and who is against her and she says she is keeping score, but she not going to answer that question. Kyle tries to explain to Erika that she felt like there were things that she could have said to make her situation more clear. Erika says she was hurt the most about the dinner with Kyle, Mauricio, Dorit and PK. AKA the best scene of the entire season.
Erika says that scene were mocking her life and mocking her family. Kyle tries to say that Mauricio believes she was telling the truth. That is clearly a lie. He and PK both find all of her tall tales laughable. So do most logically thinking people. Erika says to Sutton that they could have come to her and asked her what they needed to know. Sutton points out that Erika ran away on the trip where they were asking her. Kathy asks about other Felons By Bravo and how it was handled there. Andy says that when their are individual victims, rather than defrauding the IRS it hits in a different way.
Widows, Orphans and Burn Victims
Regarding everyone having compassion for the victims whose settlement money was stolen, Erika Jayne makes it all about her. She says she loves her husband. She thought he was great. She spits ” How the fuck do you think I feel? Andy says, “How do you feel?” She spits back “Horrible! And I’ve said that!” Gee, I must have missed that or gotten distracted by her whole nailed to the cross meme with earrings saying “widows and orphans.” Or not. Everyone else says Erika has never said that. Crystal asks why she is not saying it to victims?
Erika says that if anyone in these cases has been proven wronged, she wants them remedied. And despite what you may have read, she has been fully cooperating. Yeah, I’m not buying that. I’m not a huge Ron Richards fan at this point but he has come with the receipts. Andy says the point is she comes off as making herself the victim. Erika denies that. Erika says that in her situation she is very limited as to what to say. She was basically advised not to do the show but, she did it anyway. She says, “And I still may have fucked myself up.” Gee, ya think?
Speaking Of Her IG Account…
Kyle brings up Erika’s tonedeaf Instagram account were she lolls around half nekkid acting like nothing is going on. Or attacking Ron Richards who is trustee for the bankruptcy, and all the other dumb shit she does like flying to Vegas on private jets. Even Rinna who is so far up Erika’s ass it is hard to hear her comment saying that her social media is not doing her any favors.
Andy asks her if she had an inkling about what was going on. She says, “I do not work at Girardi Keyes all the financials are kept there.” Andy responds, “The answer is no?” She says, “There’s your answer. No it’s not. You live with the man for 22 years! Suddenly some of the housewifes don’t think that Erika knew anything. Sutton is first to say she doesn’t think she did, Rinna is close behind her, Kyle doesn’t either. Garcelle says that she doesn’t think Tom shared everything with Erika but she also thinks that Erika was living such an amazing life that maybe she didn’t want to know.
Crystal suddenly has a voice and says that if Rob did this to her she would be furious with him. Yet, she doesn’t see her anger towards him. Erika say she is very angry at Tom. Erika keeps lifting up her skirt when she crosses her legs. It’s weird. Rinna jumps in to defend Erika again. Erika says she is angry and they don’t know what she has done or what she will do. Andy ask what will she do. Erika says “you’ll just have to wait and see. Andy asks if she knew Tom was “in financial straits.” She says no. But Lord knows everyone and Andy’s baby shower knew. That was years ago. Plus, she was out their defending Tom on multiple lawsuits before the big ones became public. All sorts of people were suing him for unpaid loans.
Erika claims that she told Andy about a law lending firm suing him in 2018. When asked about it on the reunion in 2019 she said, “Resolved and they apologized.” That was a bald face lie and one of the biggest pieces of evidence against her claim that she didn’t know a thing. The episode ends with Erika turning to Crystal and hissing, “Am I angry enough for you now?”
Next Week: We see more tears from Erika who says that Tom called her five times on the day of the reunion filming. Erika says it doesn’t matter what Tom says because he is incompetent So she is “left holding the fucking bag. She is really good at mentioning that a lot. Erika finally comes for Sutton. Erika tries to deny the $20 million dollar deposit.
That was actually better than expected. I can’t wait for next week!
