Sin City

BH Producer Dave Rupel shares how the crew handled the dueling Las Vegas parties.

Hello, readers! Hope you enjoyed this week's (mostly) fun episode in Vegas. It was a bit odd having dueling parties, but after all the drama that we have gone through this year, it was a relief for everyone to let loose in Sin City.

Here's one of my favorite photos of the year -- 13 of our crew crammed into one, very happy elevator after we had wrapped shooting for the day and were headed off to have some fun of our own.

I love this crew so much! They are wonderfully talented and smart. And it's an utter joy to both work -- and play -- with them!

Each party had a different highlight for me. With Lisa's, it was easily the Chippendales. It was a fun show, they gave us great access, and it was a relief to watch Taylor have some fun -- and to watch she and Lisa grow closer. In the bar before the show, if you ordered certain drinks, you got a big Chippendale torso as the glass. I didn't have a drink, but bought one later as a souvenir.

The highlight of Adrienne's trip was, well, being at the Palms with the owner of the casino. This was my third trip to the Palms with the show and each one has been a real joy. The access Adrienne grants us is just incredible. That suite with a bowling alley in it? Unreal. The dance club Moon was so much fun to be in, even if I was working! Seeing Camille, Adrienne, Brandi, Dana, and Dedra tear up the dance floor with such abandon -- very nice!

But of course, what episode of RHOBH would be complete without a little unexpected drama. I'm referring to Kyle running into Kim at the shopping center. That truly wasn't planned. We were following Kyle spending time with her mother-in-law, Estella, because she wanted to touch base on her recovery from her facelift. When Kim showed up, the crew was thrown, but then Kim decided to join the shoot. We had no idea Kim was going to be so emotional on camera.

Thanks readers, for all your comments from last week's blog. Domestic violence isn't a common topic of conversation on reality shows, but it was part of Taylor's story this year. Several people commented on my blog that they had been the victims of domestic violence in their lives. If seeing something portrayed on our show encourages people to tell their stories and/or get help, I'm glad. I'm rooting for Taylor and her daughter Kennedy to heal and get stronger.

Until next week!
