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.

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
