Sparkle is Different Than Rhinestones

Episode 2: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor finds the difference between bling types and analyzes Kim's flirting style.

It's Episode 2 and we're already escaping California. The ladies are off to Camille's abode in Beaver Creek –- with enough bags to ensure the two day jaunt is especially fashionable. So, strap on your wooden skis (if you don't have any, just borrow Lisa's), leave door-locking instructions with Paul, and toss that suitcase in the back of the limo if it won't fit in the trunk, as we recap the Top 3 moments of Episode 2.

Planes, Trains, and Flirting
Once the ladies are finally off (and Kyle's amazing high school photo has been revealed. Nice new digs Kyle!), Kim is looking for a little sky service. It seems the blonde Richards is on the prowl and ready to find a new seatmate for this flight -- and with good reason. Colorado men are super handsome. Hence why as soon as the fasten seat belt sign went down, Kim began introducing herself with a handshake or a butt-punch to every viable candidate on the jet. Meanwhile poor Lisa was trying to nap, but make-up brushes to the nose and Adrienne also going Rocky on that guy’s behind didn't really lead to much shut eye.

No word on if any of these gents met up with Kim at baggage claim.

Bonus Moment -- The Sisterhood of the Traveling Bling
Speaking of Kim, she and Kyle are definitely doing their part to mend fences. Even if Kim isn't exactly there yet, she’s working on it, with baby steps, people, baby steps. However, the gals did have one small sister tiff that was too hilarious not to mention. When Kim saw Kyle's wardrobe for the weekend, she immediately remarked "What did you pack for Las Vegas?" This leads to one of my favorite discussions in Housewives history:

"I like sparkles," says Kyle, defending her weekend wardrobe.

"You know what? You've been making fun of me for years for sparkle and bling," Kim retorts.

"Kim, sparkles are different than rhinestones."

A distinction one shouldn't forget. Thanks for pointing it out Kyle!

Camille Explains It All
Our favorite shoulder shrugger Camille has already opened up to us so much this season. . .perhaps a little too much. Not only did we learn over dinner that Kelsey was a terrible kisser, we also found out that the man had a barnacle issue.

I don't want to sound ignorant, but what exactly does she mean by barnacle? Is that excessive hair? Funny skin tags? Weird moles? Does Kelsey have a good dermatologist? Because even after all the man has done to Camille, I think he should get his yearly skin checkup if anything described as a barnacle is a chronic issue. That does not sound healthy. I have a great dermo in NYC if you need one Kelsey. Just give me a call.

Paging the Ski Concierge
After more dating discussions over dinner and watching Adrienne struggle with cracking an egg, the ladies get fitted for their ski gear. It's important to note that one, these woman know how to work mountain PJs (one-third of the Wives were wearing leopard), and two, these women know how to work it while wearing PJs. Kim had barely mentioned that she was in need of boots before Lisa threw the ask out there for single ski pros. And Lisa thought Kim didn't wait long enough on the plane! Kim hadn't even had her pancakes yet before the entire house was trying to set her up. Let the woman slip into something less comfortable than flannel animal print first, geez.

Once the gang hits the slopes, we see the talent divide up with Taylor spraying snow on poor Lisa and Adrienne as the stay behind on the bunny slopes. Lisa claims she hung back to help Adrienne, but I suspect that she just wanted to move slowly enough that more people could recognize her poodle/ Doctor Zhivago hat. Plus, being near the lodge provided better access to those chocolate chip cookies.

Next week, things get rocky in Colorado and back in Beverly Hills. I'll be patiently waiting in my leopard PJs until then. Can't wait for more? Watch a clip of the Bickersons debating crowd control now.

Brandi: I'm Always Here For You, Kim

Brandi focuses on the positive this week as this season's RHOBH comes to an end.

Hey Bravo Fans,

Today was a fabulous day--t was my baby Jake’s birthday. We got his favorite Oreo ice cream cake, and for our family celebration, it was perfection. I can’t believe he’s already eight. I had to hold back my tears when I realized I will never again use that number eight candle. #mommymoment

It has been a really exciting week for me. My Sonoma County chardonnay, Unfiltered Blonde, launched for pre-sales this week, and despite it being tax season, the first day alone was a huge success. Thank you! The website is up now at www.unfilteredblonde.com. The creation of the wine was an incredibly long and careful process, and I couldn’t be happier or more proud of my finished product. I’m sure you're all as excited as me that this week was the FINALE episode of BATSH-- crazy RHOBH reunion. 

I could talk about the she said, she said, she said… but let’s not and pretend we did. It’s been a long season, kind of centering on one night that really isn’t worth the attention it was given. I’m tired of it, it happened several months ago, I’m sure you’re tired of it. You know why? Because it’s old news and in the PAST! 

Eileen, your house is lovely. Sorry I said otherwise for the sake of a laugh. I really like Vincent, he is super cool, your little boy is adorable, you seem like a good stepmom, and I wish you and your family the very best.

Lisa R., I really loved you on my podcast. You made me laugh and rolled with punches. I really enjoyed our interview, and I enjoyed most of the season with you. I think that’s what I’m going to take away and forget about the rest. I think sometimes you make it harder on yourself with your Twitter feed, but I’m choosing not to engage. I really liked a side of you, and you seem to have a beautiful family.

Lisa V., I had a lot of fun with you and Ken. I will always have a special place in my heart for you guys. I wish Ken the best of health and a speedy recovery. 

Kyle, best wishes on you and your family’s endeavors. My sincerest wish is that you and Kim could be as close as you ever were in the near future.

You are a strong chica and I know your family is better for it. 

Brandi Glanville

Kim, love having you as a BFF. I’m always here for you, and I hope you are always here for me. You are a strong chica, and I know your family is better for it. You are hilarious, and I love our funny talks and text-offs. Laughter is the best medicine. I heart you.

Yo, my dear, dear Yo, I will see you soon. I love you, you are so strong and so brave! I know you are going to kick Lyme disease’s ass! Anything you need, just emoji me.

I want to thank all my supporters for always being there for me regarding all of my other endeavors, including my books, podcast, Celebrity Apprentice, app, my t-shirts, and finally my WINE and for allowing me to be me.

Ok guys, this is the big week. This is the Make*A*Wish Los Angeles Walk for Wishes Walkathon. Me and the boys pledged to try to raise $15,000--I have $12,625 so far. We need $2,375 by Friday at midnight, every dollar counts. Thank you!

I heart you all!

Xoxo
