BH Producer Dave Rupel shares his two favorite parts of Pandora's wedding.

Jan 23, 20120

Hello again readers! I hope you enjoyed our Season 2 finale! (Though you won’t have to miss us just yet. Next week, we begin our epic reunion!

Now, about tonight's episode, which contains one of the funniest scenes of the season (Paul's colonoscopy) and one of the most glamorous (Pandora and Jason's wedding.)

First off, the colonoscopy. Please know Paul Nassif was a very good sport by letting us film this sequence. I love Paul dearly, and respect him tremendously. I have never had a colonoscopy, so I was unaware that a side effect to the procedure was the need to pass air. The end result was a scene that makes me laugh so hard I'm crying. I hope you find it humorous and also know that Paul is in excellent health!

You have made this show about Brandi, why not give her a show and see how the fans react? The storyline is BORING. It s odd how she is ALWAYS giving substance, and relationship opinions but no one can voice there opinion about her.........

Camille leaving the show is a shame, she's my favorite housewife. To not bring her back because she doesn't cause enough drama is sad! It's refreshing to see women portrayed in a positive light while the mean spirited bashing is wearing very thin. Why aren't the producers aware that the women with the biggest fan base are the nicer ones??? It's very clear on the internet and the blogs on this website.

Is there no way you can work something out with Camille? Lose Dana or Taylor not Camille!!

Please, please, please keep Camille! She's changed so much in season 2 that my friends and I want to see more of her. We especially love her sense of style. I hope you can work out a mutual agreement to keep her on the show.

Give Lisa and Ken and Jiggy their own show! Have them give fabulous party's, go on fabulous exotic vacations, show them working at their restaurants, they are so fun and entertaining!

I have to say after watching the reunion shows.....why did Andy let Kyle and Taylor off the hook and go after Lisa .....that was bs.......Kyle said soooooo much crap about Lisa all season and so did Taylor and Adrienne and that was never, never addressed. Don't care to much for Andy anymore.

I don't care who you bring back and who you don't. Nothing will entice me to watch another season of such vile, mean-spirited behavior. Lisa went through the entire season of filming completely unaware of what Kyle, Taylor, and Adrienne were doing to her character behind her back. That's not entertainment no matter how you look at it. Those women and Bravo need to take a serious look at themselves and figure out what makes them think this is appropriate. How do any of you look in a mirror and not get sick?

I know I know Im late, but catching up on Hulu. When I learned of Russell's suicide I was very sad for him and his family. Last season Lisa did not like nor trust Taylor and now I know why. Taylor is emotionally unstable. I advocate for survivors of domestic violence and It is usually, when the survivor decides to leave an abusive relationship the survivor is at a higher risk of being killed. Being that Taylor is emotionally unstable; I believe Taylor is desperate to fit in with these women of Beverly Hills she fabricated stores of abuse to gain empathy from these women and played both sides of the table. When she hung out with these women at parties, she wined and complained about her husband, and when she went home she wined and complained to her husband about the women. At the white party when Kyle uninvited Taylor & Russell, Russell appeared to be unaware that Taylor was the one making public statements about their private life. If he had known the truth that Taylor was the one sharing information about their relationship, he would not have been compelled to threaten Taylor's "friends" with a law suit. While the ladies were in Hawaii trying to enjoy Kyle's husbands birthday, Taylor's crazy ass is calling them from L.A. to tell these women she's leaving Russell; who does that? If Taylor was truly being abused, there is no way she & poor Russell would have done a reality show. I don't believe Taylor's cry for wolf.

Its a Brad, Brad World: Hey, that is what I was going to say! BRAVO!! BRAVOTV. Thank you for airing normal gay couples and not exploiting flamboyant gays that do not represent the gay community. It is important that the world get the opportunity to see normal gay couples so they can begin to embrace gay marriage (no mater what it is called, i.e. Unions).

No Taylor , Dana, Kyle and/or Kim would make this a refreshing show next season just as it was intended to be. Beautiful people in a beautiful environment living it up in sunny Beverly Hills. This season's only light was Brandi and of course, Pandora's wedding and the events leading to it. Lisa and Ken and the kids and wedding planner, what fun that was to watch! How painful to see Lisa get bashed by Kyle and Adrienne.

I was horrified by Russell's suicide being written about in a book he cannot defend and don't know how anyone could condone it. I feel so bad for his children. Taylor cheapened the show from BH glitz to drunken trailer trash talk and fights and then acted so mean on the reunion. In the end it turned out she wasn't even living (just renting, pretending to be a BH hw.) How did that get past the producers? It was a train wreck this season. Lisa Van der Pump is your Lucky Card, how you got her is a feather in your cap.

Ya But...

Just re-watched all of season 2. Of all the episodes, I'd have to say the Hawaii trip was my favorite. It's so entertaining watching people having fun. And the major difference between this and the other episodes....No Taylor, Kim or Dana! If we want to watch fighting, we can watch Jerry Spriner. Hope you keep this in mind.

i have no sympathy for a woman who's history is a tainted with dishonesty, hypocracy, and now...profitting from death money. i feel so sorry for his children, their story (as with so many other's) contradicts Taylor's...Shana's (?)...or what's her name's. please do a RHNYC "recast." ditto to Pam...Dana...or what's her name. Birds of a feather should be booted together!!!

An interesting addition would be Brandy's friend Jen...and this is if you keep Kim on cast. I'm sure the connection is obvious.

Lisa = KEEP Brandi = KEEP Camille = KEEP Paul = KEEP...so I guess that means his baggage too (ouch) Kyle = keeeppppp. I hesitate to say that, but a show does need some drama, and she's your bitch.

Bravo I really adore your Real Housewives of Beverly Hills- don't like any of your other shows anymore as they deteriorated into a negative spiral of contrived drama. Please don't let that happen here. You have a great show - don't underestimate your audience. We are not all at the Jerry Springer level and would like to have a fun show to escape with. We are not so dim that we don't understand that reality tv is scripted, but we still love to see these women who lead lives most of us never dream of. Keep it positive so we can continue to enjoy it. Life has enough drama and tragedies, which I think you should continue to show, but don't try to make up silly cat fights to entice viewers to watch. I would stop watching if it becomes like your other shows.

Thanks for doing a great job.

A true fan.

I, too, loved seeing the joy all over Jason on his wedding day, so precious. It was such a sweet scene when he was tieing his shoes on the stairs; he was radiating happiness. Jason and Pandora, all the best to you and thank you for sharing your wedding with us. It was such fun to watch. I will say it again, Jason looks so much like Mike Modano! I wish Lisa and Ken's son would be in the show more though I think one reason I like him so much is that he doesn't seem the least bit interested in being a part of it. I would like to know how he is doing with his music. Such a great family and it is refreshing to see.

After watching the Reunion shows, I really hope Taylor will not be back next season. I do hope Lisa, Adrienne, Camille and Kyle will return, but not Taylor or Kim.

I loved the show last night with the unseen footage. That is the kind of show you should have every week. It felt real, unscripted, and FUN! What we like to see is just the day to day interactions with people in their daily lives. These people are so charismatic and have such beautiful, loving families. I beg you to put more of that and not try to contrive fighting among women. We are all tired of that tactic to increase ratings.

While we do enjoy the fun, I think Reality means the difficult with the good times. We can all learn from seeing other people dealing with real-life issues, such as addiction and domestic abuse. These are issues that I have faced and it helped me to see other people go through the same thing, as terrible and tragic as it was to watch. I learned and I changed.

Thanks for your show! Just show more of the footage like you did last night and I think you will find that to be what people really want to see.

Can't wait for next season. Hope you bring back all the ladies from season 1 and 2. (wouldn't really mind if Brandi did not return however)

Just watched the lost episode. And I am convinced, KEEP Lisa, Camille, Adrienne and Brandi. BOOT Kyle, Taylor and Dana; they will drag down the show in the end. ON THE FENCE Kim, I think she has a good story line and without her rotten sister she maybe able to grow.

I am very proud of Kim Richards to go on air and admit that she is an alcoholic. It explains some of her erratic behavioir this season. I hope that Kim Richards understands that Brandi Glanville cares about her as a person to point out on air that she has a substance abuse problems -- even if it is the wrong substance -- even her own sister Kyle does not care about Kim as a person. I have watched RHOBH from the beginning although Russell Armstrong is gone -- I really felt like the show "trashed" him when the guy is dead and he has a daughter and other parents/siblings who are grieving his loss -- I for one will not buy Taylor Armstrong's book and strongly believe her position in the show needs to reevaluated.

I'm sure this isn't where to ask but I gotta know - why does the Bravo announcer always clearly say "Brava" instead of "Bravo" in the commercials?

Please, keep only Brandi, Lisa, and Camille. I really don't care about Kyle and Adrienne. Please, let Taylor go, cannot watch this woman on TV. AND her best friend Dana too - bring nothing to the show.

Please bring back Lisa, Brandi and Camille. They are so much fun to watch. Please get rid of Kyle, Taylor and Adrienne. Kim needs to concentrate on her recovery. Dana should not be a part of the cast.

Bravo, Please, please, DO NOT bring Taylor and Dana back next season! And right now after seeing parts one and two of the reunion, I am not too crazy about Kyle and Adrienne either.

Would not be able to tolerate Denise Richards, it would be like watching Taylor. I would love to see Jennifer Stallone instead of Brodie Jenners mother.

Goodby and best of luck to Kim, Taylor & Dana. If it were up to me, I would get rid of Kyle, but, it appears she is somehow vested.

Why did Bravo decide to keep Kim and Taylor, neither of these women contributed anything but drama, which was so disgusting and boring. Adrienne doesn't add anything to the show either. Please get rid of them!

goodness. if part 1 didn't make it clear enough, part 2 surely did! please get rid of taylor and kyle. and maybe kim has been to rehab, but her interview still sounds slurry and nutso. ughhhhhhhhhhhhh. i'm just not sure i can tune in anymore. kyle, taylor, kim... and now dana??!! how did she even make it on the show in the 1st place?? i hope camille, lisa, and brandi get their own show. otherwise this viewer is tuning out alhough i'll definitely miss my favorite ladies!

Keep the cast as is. Lisa has my sympathy. It truly looked like she was surpr ised at Kyle and maybe Adrienna too. This may be too much for Kim...and Brandi...the jury is out. Taylor deserves to stay after hanging in there through very difficult times. Get rid of the pychics. The wedding was beautiful. This is my favorite HW show.

Please keep Camile and Brandi on the show!!! No one can stand to watch Taylor anymore....Lisa is my favorite hands down!!! Lisa is the only true friend on this show and won't take crap from Kyle or Adrianne!!

Love the show. This one is my fav of all the housewives. I do believe you need to get rid of Kim. She is a complete mess and her behavior should never be rewarded by being on TV. I am glad she went to rehab and wish her the best, but it is going to take her a very long time to get her life on the right track if she ever does. She is and has been abusing more then alcohol that is pretty obvious. Poor tragic Taylor needs to go away as well. I completely lost respect for her when I found out she wrote a book about her dead husband. She is not the only woman who has been abused and will not be the last, and for her to profit off his tragic death and using the show to do it is completely wrong. He is gone and cannot defend himself and lets not forget about his kids they have to continue reliving this. If she stays on the show I don't think I will be able to continue watching for that reason alone. Now about Dana, she adds absolutely nothing to the show. I was confused this season why she was even on the show. Let's get some more classy ladies on. I love Lisa, Brandy is a hoot and Adrienne's husband Paul I adore ( not so much her, but she has potential). Kyle is the pot stirrer so she keeps the drama with the ladies going, and Camille I felt was a bit phony this season so I am curious how she will play out. I believe it's time for a little re-casting and a great big by-by to Kim, Taylor and Dana.

I would prefer Taylor not return to the show. I didn't enjoy watching her the first season as she is unlikeable. The second season I felt bad for her but I still didn't enjoy her watching her. Camille, Lisa, Adrienne and "mean girl" Kyle are enjoyable to watch. I like Brandi too, if she can keep it clean. I know it's cable, but come on.....

Have the Bravo producers ever considered making a "Real Husbands of XX" show? Might be less petty crap than the girls get involved in ... just a thought.

Dave, I have been a viewer of the Housewives, all the shows, I no longer watch NY(Jill being mean to Bethonny turned me off), Atlanta or NJ(everyone turn on Teresa turned me off and fake jacqueline). This maybe my last season of Orange Co. I hope this will not be the last I see of BH. I really loved BH over all the others, and one of the reasons was Lisa. I find her to be a real lady. After part one of the reunion show, I was shocked, Adrianne showed just how jealous she has been over this year. She should be ashamed of herself. I hope she can get over it and apologize to Lisa and make thing right with her. Kyle is a snake and we can all see what she is, however there is hope for her, if she makes the effort to make amends and apologize to Lisa and the rest of the Ladies, and own her bad behavior. Taylor needs to go, do so before she can do any more damage to the show. Dana needs to go. Camille like Lisa is a lady and we love to watch her, see what she will do with her new life. Brandi is fresh and new and love how she stuck up for Lisa and love seeing her interact with Lisa, she just needs to change some of her words, I’m sure Lisa will help her. Kim needs help and this is not the place for her, I think it is not healthy for her to be on TV at this time in her life. Lisa – Must keep (fan favorite) Brandi – Must keep Camille – Must keep (fan favorite) Adrianne – keep - if she can stop being a “mean girl” Taylor – let go Dana – let go Kyle – keep - if she can stop being a “mean girl” Kim – let go Just what I, a viewer see.

I have to say I was disappointed in the "attire" of the ladies at the reunion. They just didn't look as glamorous as one would expect from Beverly Hills!

Please get rid of Taylor. I could not stand her last season and this season was 100 times worse. If the entire show is going to be about her I'm quitting this Housewives and this was the only one that I really enjoyed (last season that is).

Outstanding, though conflicted season. Clearly Taylor's tragedy overwhelmed everything. The poor, sad, highly confused and troubled woman was shed in the best of lights. Congratulations to you for presenting it well. Just... Will someone p,ease tell Taylor to get a new therapist? She needs one.

Reunion was almost a joke and soooo very one sided!! Lisa, Brandi, and maybe Camille are only ones I think are worth watching! Too bad the others have no LOYALITY or strenght of conviction !!! The first instalment almost difficult to watch, hope it gets better!!!!

First off, PLEASE get rid of Taylor...Enough already..... Those women attacking Lisa on the Reunion Pt 1 was pathetic. I was disappointed with Andy also for not asking the women to name where they got their info from on Lisa selling stories. It seems like they were all chomping at the bitt to wait to talk about it on camera when what they should have done was call her when they first heard the news and told them who said it. Some of these women are smart but they are no match for Lisa and they know it. Sometimes things can get lost in translation and although the same language of English is spoken, the senses of humor can vary. I think Lisa is the best. Kyles referrence to a chess game when dealing with Lisa proves to me that she considers carrying on a conversation with someone that smart is too much of a challenge for her. We could use a little more of seeing Brandi also. Thanks to you all ..you do a great job with the show.

You brandi lovers deserve what you get this season, fake and more fake drama. Yay for Kim for trying to face her demons, I'm afraid Brandi hasn't even had the guts to look her demons in the eye yet. Somehow I still don't feel bad for her, can only cringe at the thought of having to FFW through her.
