It’s Wednesday and that means it is time for me to freak out about having three recaps in one night. Well tonight there are way more recap-worthy shows I want to do. RHOBH, RHOSLC, Survivor, TAR, Married At First Sight (that I have given up on trying to recap), The Masked Singer that I can’t even record and have to remember to watch On Demand on Saturdays. Why is EVERYTHING on Wednesday night? Tonight’s RHOBH Recap is for episode 20. That’s a whole lot of episodes when we haven’t even gotten to the reunion tonight. But, I am down with it because it is the only show that gets a ton of traffic. I may have to be a Walmart Greeter when the season ends. 🙂
They are reminding us what previously happened and I didn’t think much of it when Kathy Hilton stormed off over Rinna ordering the 818 tequila. But, tonight I realized that she left because “Kyle didn’t do a fucking thing about it. WTF? Why would Kyle dictate what Rinna orders to drink? Apparently, Kathy got a REALLY good edit last season and we all fell for it.
Next, Dorit calls Kyle on the Halloween set to update her on Crystal’s party and to let her know that Rinna left and why. Kyle says that she really doesn’t want to know everything that Kathy said about her because she doesn’t want to get to a place they can’t come back from. I’ve been to that place and frankly, I don’t miss that sibling at all. We were never very close anyway and I didn’t deserve the way he talked to and about me. He cut off everyone in the family and it was a good decision for us all. There were hurt feelings at first but that quickly passed.
Erika Goes To Therapy
Erika does online therapy with her therapist. I realize that this scene is meant to make us feel sorry for Erika. I am kind of ashamed to admit it is working. She has been served a shit platter that I am not sure she had a hand in. I’m not sure she didn’t either But, as she said, that is for the courts to decide. She is really angry mostly at Tom, and is venting that anger on the other women and worst of all the victims. It is a terrible look. But, she has lost everything, and this scene I have to be honest, made me feel sorry for her. Especially if she didn’t know where the money was coming from. I get that she got $25K and was using the Girardi Keese Amex. But, Tom was supposed to be really rich!
You can go ahead and eviscerate me in comments. But, I really think she is going through a lot. And I am not sure how much she knew. If it turns out she KNEW she was spending victims money on luxury items, that is a whole nother story. But, the jury hasn’t even been chosen yet, let alone come to a decision. Also, is that the shrink from Married At First Sight? Erika finally admits that Tom had a mean side.
Erika Launches Her Hair Product Line
Next we are back to the regular Erika with all her walls up. The news about Kathy Hilton’s meltdown was out in the news just days after the trip. So, Erika was asked about it at her launch party by reporters. She simply says, Everything is NOT hunkydory. In her talking head Erika says this is a juicy story. Everyone wants a story about Kathy cussing out the manager, being very rude at the coat check and screaming in Kyles face. AH! Now we learn even more. And people still wanna claim Rinna is lying? Please. Rinna arrives with her Erika Jayne hair.
Sutton shows up even though things are rocky with Erika and she has no interest in hair and makeup. They feast on an ENORMOUS amounts french fries. What is it with housewives and fries? Elton John just so happens to call Dirty Diana for some facetime. Of course Erika loves it. Of course she does. Meanwhile, Kathy has called Dorit. I never have understood that relationship. But, Dorit says that Kathy remembers everything. I doubt that. And that she realized her behavior was out of line. Not sure I believe that either. Rinna points out that Kathy texted her begging her not to say anything. And they show the texts to prove it. Rinna and Dorit talk about Kathy going on Instagram Live with ET and lied about the whole thing. There were a lot of witnesses at the Caribou Club. That is how word got out so fast.
The other ladies confirm that it was the DJ who set Kathy off when he refused to play Billie Jean. Crystal points out to us that the ladies should know that Michael Jackson has some problematic issues in his background. Sheree says that Kathy was shaking mad outside the hat shop earlier in the day. Rinna tells us that Kathy insulted all of the other ladies. Kathy was expected at this event. She did not show up.
Kyle and Kathy Finally Sit Down To Talk
Kyle show up at Kyle’s house with a t-shirt that says PEACE. Then, she picks a flower for Kyle from Kyle’s planter. She really is weird. Apparently, it is Kyle’s shirt too, lol. Kathy starts with an apology. Then she suddenly calls out Kyle for making fun of her all the time. Well, Kyle does actually do that. But, all sisters do. Don’t wear bedroom shoes to the airport is a wee bit different than saying “I am going to destroy her entire family if it’s the last thing I do!” She needs to get back on the apology train. Kyle also points out that Kathy always takes a joke too far.
Kyle points out that Kathy was very worked up that night. It was not the first time Kathy had gotten in her face and screamed at her, but it was the first time she had done it in public. Kathy says in a very monotone voice, “I am very sorry.” She says she is mostly sorry for what she said back at the house. Still think Rinna is lying? Kathy blames it on the wine and altitude. Kyle cries and says she has never felt like she has had support from her sisters. She cries and says she feels like Kathy doesn’t like her. Kyle says if someone hurts her, she has to keep them at arm length. Blood included. Kathy tells her that she is proud of her. They hug it out.
Sutton and Erika Sit Down To Talk
Sutton has invited Erika over for some Popeye’s chicken and biscuits and a bottle of Dom. Sounds great to me. But, I’m from Georgia and so are they. So we get this whole lunch. LOL. Erika seems all in but goes for the sweet tea since she is driving. And you know, also on antidepressants. These two have certainly had their ups and downs but they eventually have become closer. Sutton asks her to stop lashing out at everyone. Sutton says that the word “victim” is her trigger word. Sutton suggests that she adds some compassion for the victims. Erika says she would like some compassion too. That actually went well.
Then we cut back to Kathy and Kyle. Kathy has decided to stick around and talk to Rinna. Rinna let’s us know that Kathy is wearing the same t-shirt she wore when Kathy had “her psychotic break.” Kathy apologizes to Rinna. Rinna suggests that Kathy needs some help. Then, Kathy says that Rinna can be very unkind too. So that undoes the apology. Suddenly, Kathy brings up that she is going through a lot and one of her friends is dying of cancer. This is news even to Kyle. Kyle doesn’t seem to be buying it. Neither am I. Then Kathy takes an angry tone toward Rinna and says she could show a little compassion. Rinna is not letting Kathy and her likely fake tears move her.
Rinna asks if she remembered that she locked herself into the bedroom because Kathy was having some sort of psychotic break. In her talking head, Kathy brings up Rinna attacking Kim. What does that have to do with the current situation. Now, Kyle is crying. Rinna wants Kathy to figure out why she has a black heart full of hatred. Kathy leaves. Rinna tells Kyle that nothing will be resolved unless Kathy gets therapy. I’m team Rinna on this.
Next week is the finale and Kyle and Sutton get physical at some sort of handbag sale. Rinna talks to everyone about what really happened in Aspen. Kyle gets uncomfortable and excuses herself. Kyle and Dorit wonder how all the details are leaked to the press. Dorit might be a good guess. But there were a lot of people inside that club who I am sure were talking.
