Good Vibrations

Episode 9: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor hands out accolades to the guests and performers at Mohamed's party.

Hello Beverly Hills lovers. I can't believe you answered my call, er, recap. I guess you love me more than Lisa Vanderpump. (Just kidding Lisa, I think the lack of ladies answering you phone was just a fluke. They were probably just all driving through tunnels and getting terrible reception.) The quotient of oddities in this episode is so high I'm frankly unsure of how to even recap it. I mean, just look at this:

You have a camel (a better behaved one than the one the Countess rode), a mermaid (an especially vocal one at that), drum circles, strange dancing, people sliding down banisters, secret bedrooms, Kyle Richards showing that she is exceptionally flexible, Mohamed's fembot girlfriend. . . I could go on and on. Truly in the cannon of Housewives parties, this leaps to the forefront.

Thus, instead of the usual recap, I've decided to hand out awards this week. There is simply too much greatness at this shindig to not spotlight all the delights and wonders therein. Come as I highlight the most amazing moments of this Moroccan-style evening.

First a non-party related award -- Best anesthesiologist look-a-like for Marky Marky: Paul's. Let me just put this out there Dr. Nassif -- if Kim doesn't want him, feel free to set him up with me. Despite not knowing what the half of his face that was covered by the surgical mask looks like, I'll date him. I'm sure if anything was less than ideal under there, you fixed it. Also, plase say hi to Mark Wahlberg's mother for me.

Worst Backpack: As Lisa was desperately trying to get the whole family to look their best for Pandora's engagement party, Max was nowhere to be found. And when he did arrive he was wearing a book bag. Lisa's shock at his satchel was truly hilarious. She was seriously disturbed by him wearing a backpack, and asked him why he was doing so about 70 times. It could have been that his pants were also sagging, but really why did he have that backpack on? Lisa needs to know!

Deserving of Acknowledgment: Lisa's husband Ken, oh darling Ken. When Lisa presented Pandora with an incredible necklace, made from a bracelet Ken had given her, and reminded her that mommy would always love her, Ken felt a little forgotten. His gentle reminder of "What about me? I'm paying for the wedding!" was precious. Of course, he did assert himself by giving Jason an amazing watch, so the lovebirds (parents and kids) were adored equally in the end.

Best Arrival: Camille, for gently nuzzling the camel and letting him know she understands him.

Close runner-up: Taylor, for really being a trooper despite her fear of snakes (and maybe camels). You made it in there honey, and that's half the battle.

Most Dedicated Performer: The mermaid. She was, as Camille said, really flopping around out there. Also she was the one who slid down the banister, which is just a nice way to remind people that the party is downstairs. "Come on down, the tent is just warming up. Let me show you the way by tightly clutching the railing and slowly careening down the banister."

Best Reaction: Adrienne for popping up with appropriate disgust and confusion when Taylor asked if she called Paul "daddy" during sex. The internet needs to make that a GIF immediately. Also, as Taylor mentioned, "Where is Daddy?" I'd love to see the gent who earned this moniker from his wife.

Awkwardest: Taylor and Lisa's interaction. I hope the mermaid kept these two apart as much as possible, because their tete-a-tete at the fete was icy. Time will tell how these two work it out, but it definitely won't be at this party, no matter how many animals and faux fish-people tried to help smooth things over.

Best Drumming: Camille. We knew she had rhythm, but dang girl. Perhaps you should start a cross Housewives band. The Countess does love a good drum accompaniment.

Best Reason to Miss the Party: Because you're vibin' with your secret boyfriend. Kim is packing not just to move -- but to move in with her man. And -- quell surprise! – Kyle has never met the fellow.

The greatest revelation in this scene, to me, was that they met at the mailbox. Perhaps this is why I'm single, as an apartment dweller I don't have mailboxes to hang around and wait for men to possibly date.

Princess and the Pea-est: Paul. The mattress is lumpy? Sorry Mohamed didn't know your sleep number when he installed his secret bed. I'm sure he'll do better next time.

Most Flexible: Kyle Richards. I mean just watch.

I mean, that was something.

Most like Dave Navarro: This guy.

Next week the ladies do even more pampering at "Paul's Night of Beauty" and the ladies contact the other side in a séance. I don't think you need a Ouija board to know that it's going to be awesome.

Kim: My Heart Felt So Big

Kim discusses her daughter's wedding and her special relationship with Monty.

The countdown...Less than 10 days before Christmas! I hope you are almost ready for the holiday!

This is an exciting episode for me as I share with you all a peek into one of the most important days of our lives: The day my Brookie married the man of her dreams. Brooke and Thayer have known each other since birth, it's fate...God...love... I am truly blessed!


Kyle and Maurice's trip to Mallorca looked absolutely amazing! It looked like everybody had a great time. Yolanda always keeps her high. These situations put things into perspective for us. We love our children so much! We give me them everything inside us to make them strong young people, and at the end of the day, we can only hope that they are going to make the right choices.

It was cute watching Eileen go over her dialogue with her niece. It reminded me of my sisters and me. I was very happy to see that Lisa V. got her star on the Palm Springs Walk of Fame! How exciting to see all her fans dressed in pink! She looked so pretty, and Ken couldn't have looked prouder. Congrats to Lisa V., Ken and Giggy!

One of my favorites couples is David and Yolanda. Listening to the two of them, well I just love them together and the team that they make! They support and balance each other so perfectly, and that is also what makes them such great parents!
Oh Brandi and her podcast! Filtered and unfiltered, she's so damn funny! All day long!

I had no idea he would end up giving me one of the most wonderful gifts of my entire life, our daughter Brooke, or that he would be my best friend from that day forward.

Kim Richards

You all officially get to meet Monty! I met Monty when I was 19, on a blind date. Go figure! I had no idea he would end up giving me one of the most wonderful gifts of my entire life, our daughter Brooke, or that he would be my best friend from that day forward.

We were married for a brief time, but our hearts never parted! Giving birth to our daughter, we shared a bond, but our friendship has always been so deep. We have always made being parents to our daughter a priority. Monty has always been kind of a wanderer but has stayed at my home on and off over the last 15 years. In June, Monty was diagnosed with lung cancer, and I decided it was time for Monty to move in for good. He moved in full time with me, and I fixed a room where he is very comfortable and we all feel very good knowing Monty is where he needs to be and he is in good, loving hands! As you can see, Monty and I have a great friendship! We really do enjoy each other's company, and I can't imagine my life without him. So we are not thinking that way! Positive thoughts only!

Brooke and Thayer got engaged Christmas morning 2013. One of the most exciting phone calls and Christmases ever! Their plan was a destination beach wedding in 2015, however, our plans took a shift when we found out about Monty. Of course the most important thing right then was that Brooke could have her father walk her down the aisle, and that Monty would be strong enough! Brooke knew exactly what she wanted. She and I worked non-stop with an amazing team of people! From Mark Zunino designing the most amazing dress, Petals by David flying in the most Gorgeous Flowers, Glen our caterer, and our fantastic coordinator Vanessa, we were able to do just that.


Brooke and Thayer wed on August 2, 2014. It was only our family. A very intimate, private ceremony! The most magical and special evening . I wish I could tell you what I was thinking, the flashbacks to so many memories. Brooke was radiating with joy! More joy than I had ever seen come from that little face! She looked stunning! I, too, was overwhelmed with joy. I was so grateful to see her arm and arm with her dad, walking down the aisle, to join her soon-to-be husband. When she got to Thayer, each second became more and more intense! Then she looked over and at me and mouthed the words, "I love you." I thought I was going to fall out of my chair! My heart felt so big! 


The vows, the kiss, and then they were married!

Thank you for sharing this amazing, magical, and special moment with us!

xo,
Kim
