Moves Like Grammer

Episode 15: Bravotv.com’s Associate Editor slips on her fingerless gloves and gets to knitting in honor of this week's episode.

Camille. Grammer. Dancing.

Honestly, I’m almost miffed that it took us 15 episodes to get to this -- this moment where we see Camille letting loose in "da club." Since she first shook her way into our hearts in Season 1 (and then in her more amazing Bat Mitzvah video showcased on WWHL), I've found myself enamored with the Donatacci dance. And finally, this season took mercy on us and provided her signature writhing.

But of course, Camille wasn't the only one shaking it this week. Brandi brought her boot to the dance floor, and the men of Chippendales did what they do best -- terrify and excite all at the same time. Plus there were plenty of other gems in this episode (i.e. people breaking expensive things! Dogs stuck in pajamas!). What happens in Vegas is recapped here. . .

Delegaters, Mount Up
Paul and Adrienne head off to appear on The Doctors to discuss their busy, yet fulfilling lifestyles.  But Paul hasn't eaten -- because, as Adrienne explained via delegation, it's Bernie's job to feed him. I'm not sure where Bernie was but by the time Paul got to the set, I think he could have eaten one of the smaller doctors. The man was famished. He needed a snack, and really who amongst us doesn't? (Editor's note: feel free to take this opportunity to go fix a snack. Ill wait.) I appreciate a man with an appetite, particularly one who doesn’t deny himself the finer things in life – like cupcakes and chocolate-covered treats -- while waiting to appear on a show about healthy lifestyles. Dr. Paul Nassif, every day you wiggle your way more and more into my heart.

Say Yes to the Dress (All of Them)
Meanwhile, Lisa and Pandora go off to try on wedding dresses (the wedding is really happening you guys!) and Giggy gets himself into a little bit of trouble.

I hate to take joy from the struggles of others (schadenfreude) but that was the most adorable entrapment I’ve ever seen. Anyway, Pandora tries on a plethora of dresses, and I downright got almost misty. Weddings! All of the dresses were so flouncy and romantic, and this is before Pandora got to add her additional flowers. This wedding is really going to bring it – even if Lisa refuses to wear a big pink ball gown.

People Dropping Things
Again schadenfreude, but people dropping expensive things is always good for a laugh. So when a large, and gorgeous chandelier was lost in the hand-off between Faye, Kyle, and a poor shopkeeper, I could barely contain myself.

real-housewives-of-beverly-hills-season-

Frankly if Giggy had been doing his "I'm stuck in my pajamas breakdance" at the same time, you probably would have needed to get me an oxygen mask. It was just too much.

Even with the broken baubles, Kyle managed to get things in order for her book cover photo shoot. Following in the footsteps of Sonja Morgan, she climbs right up on top of her dining table to take some photos. Unfortunately, Kim isn’t there to help her hurdle over the dining room chairs. Roxy does however get a guest spot, eating some of her own cheese, as does Portia, wearing a crown. Why is this episode trying to destroy me with cuteness? Weddings, dog pajamas, babies in crowns. . . and, of course, "chipmunks."

Vegas Baby
Over a heartfelt lunch with Lisa, Taylor explains the beach blanket bingo that was Brandi's party. But remedy awaits, as Lisa's bringing her along to Vegas for the big bachelorette party as part of Taylor's birthday.

Meanwhile Adrienne makes it to Vegas -- just in time to stop her brother from holding hands with a Playboy bunny. Soon after Dana, Brandi, Camille, and Dedra arrive at the Palms -- and start bowling. Yes, no big deal, the suite also has a bowling alley. So Camille bowls in heels and Brandi bowls in her boot, like that’s not strange at all. They do surprisingly well, particularly because of Dana's extremely encouraging words ("You're so thin and hot."). Also during this endeavor Dana is wearing a diamond lollipop holder valued at $1 million dollars. The last time I went bowling, we drank a pitcher of Bud heavy and, as a group, were all wearing the same shoes. I am never hanging out with my friends again.

Meanwhile, the Pandora party arrives at the Chippendales show. . .In a rare case of things exceeding your expectations this scene was even better than I could have ever imagined. Lisa Vanderpump discussed "cock socks" and how long it would take to knit something like that. And then, once the show itself commenced, the gyrating -- oh dear lord -- so much gyrating on couches. If you can bear it, hang tight to see Lisa, Pandora, and Taylor show the men how it is done.

I think Taylor said it best when she described her reaction as half-terrified and half thrilled.

Also warranting that sort of a response was the other ladies getting their groove on at Planet Hollywood. And I mean groove on, turned-to-11 on. Exhibit A:

There was a lot of fingerless glove-touching going on. I think we can firmly say that Camille is on Team Brandi.

Back in Beverly Hills, Kyle ran into Kim, only to find her sister is not exactly in the best place with Ken and the kids, explaining her absence from Vegas. Here's hoping her kids come around.

Next week, more parties and more drama. But for now let's keep focusing on the dance. Which dance moves did you prefer? Chippendales or Camille's? Leave your vote in the comments.

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
