Lisa R Reflects on That Bittersweet Episode

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.

Kyle: I Have Never Had Anyone Put a Hand on Me

Kyle explains what worried her most the night of the poker party.

Wow, this is a difficult blog to write. This was a horrible night made all the worse by Brandi's behavior. When I walked outside, I wanted to talk to my sister without anyone else around. I tried to walk Kim away from the cameras, as well as Brandi. Brandi was relentless. I asked her over and over again to leave us alone and let me speak with my sister privately. As Kim and I were standing by the garage trying to speak in private, Brandi grabbed both of my wrists and would not let go. I was shocked. I have never had anyone put a hand on me and honestly started to feel scared. I don't want to be overly dramatic about the situation, but Brandi is 5'10" and I am 5'2", and at this point I did not know what she was capable of, especially because she was intoxicated and aggressive.


I took off my shoes, so I could get out of there as quickly as possible. I want to say that while the physical part of this evening was very upsetting, it paled in comparison to my concern for my sister. What Brandi is so clearly trying to do to my relationship with my sister is what was upsetting me the most. We had worked so hard on our relationship and had come so far, and to see this happening had me overcome with emotion.

I just hope that Kim can see what we all saw so clearly...that Brandi's actions speak louder than any of her venomous lies.

Kyle Richards

Brandi keeps saying I'm jealous of how close they are and how she's been there for Kim. I never realized they were as close as Brandi claims, and I never knew Brandi to be there for Kim other than taking that one call that she talked about in her interview. Brandi did call me to say that Kim had called her at 2 AM in the morning. She asked me to please not repeat it, and I never did. But she went on camera letting everyone know about it. Why would she repeat that? I also never said "That's not my problem, that's just Kim." I had my hands tied as I was asked to please not repeat that this information was shared with me . Other than Brandi telling me about this one call, I have never gotten any late night calls or any signs of my sister not being OK or in danger in any way. If there was something I should have been there for, I certainly had no idea. Perhaps my sister chose not to share with me and felt comfortable sharing with Brandi. I cannot be there for something I am unaware of. If I knew of something that Kim needed me for, I would be there as I always have. There are years of history there that Brandi is not privy to, and I will never share, no matter how many hurtful lies she hurls my way.
When I watch Brandi with Kim, I see someone who is taking advantage of my sister at her most vulnerable. It's frustrating, worrisome, and hurtful that my sister cannot see this. Why does Brandi want Kim to feel that she is the only one there for her? We come from a big family that my sister has plenty of support from. People who genuinely love and care for her. Not to mention that Kim has four adult children that love and support their mom.
As I walked away from this night, I knew I would never be friends with Brandi and was scared of just how much damage she had done to my relationship with Kim. I just hope that Kim can see what we all saw so clearly...that Brandi's actions speak louder than any of her venomous lies.
Thanks for watching.
XO,
Kyle
