Troupe Beverly Hills

Episode 20: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor gets a little misty over Pandora's wedding and the Season 2 finale. 

Jan 22, 20120

Hello Beverly Hills fans. It’s been a season of mammoth proportions and so we’re ending it as all epic stories end -- with a wedding heralding new beginnings. I recommend you get some tissues on hand and have your tiny dog tuxedo ready as we walk down the aisle of the finale episode together.

A VanderFabulous Affair
As soon as Jason stood up this season and said he had an announcement to make, I got excited. Let's all be honest here -- this wedding is exactly the sort of event that's in Lisa Vanderpump-Todd's wheelhouse, and we’ve all been waiting to see with baited breath to see exactly how incredible it was going to be. And here we are. The Vanderfabulous wedding is of course taking place on Giggy's favorite place -- the tennis court. But it's not like guests are seated on side of the net in anevent reminiscent of Billy Jean King. The space has been transformed with a palatial tent, copious flowers, crystals, bling, etc. The only remnant of the game is the pole used to hang the net, which Lisa thinks will be perfect for Camille's grinding. I agree. Please leave that intact so Ms. Donatacci can get to it (speaking of things in people’s wheelhouse).

Friend or Enema?
Meanwhile, Paul is getting ready for the wedding in his own way -- by having a colonoscopy. This means he needed to first free his body of, er, toxins. And so he asked his darling wife for a bit of assistance. . .

Did anyone actually think that Adrienne was going to go through with that one? When Paul called for Ms. Maloof, did anyone think she would head in there and say "Oh of course, just bend over." No. If any of us have learned anything about the Bickersons, we would have bet $100 bucks that there was no humanly possible way Adrienne was about to give Paul an enema. And I see her point: that's personal maintenance that's firmly in the DIY column.

Just watched "The Lost Footage." Award for Most Profound Summarization of the Entire Series: Linda Thompson at the beach home party, "We are an evolved species." Truly profound. Evolved as box jellyfish

No one time did anyone mention Taylor flirting with a man during her daughters birthday party. Too many discrepancies. Taylor should not be on this show. Kim is not interested in being on this show. Brandi is new blood and already becoming a favorite. Lisa's British Humor is funny.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE no more Taylor. And Adrienne is so boring. I know there are many a housewife in Beverly Hills waiting to replace!

I really wish Taylor would not return to the show. She was not enjoyable to watch or even likeable the first season before the tragedy, and this year I feel bad for her but she doesn't add anything to the show...in my opinion, she takes away from it.

I like Camille, Lisa, Adrienne, and "mean girl" Kyle. I liked Kim last year better than this year.

Pandora's hwedding was insanely beautiful! I can't help but hum the song that Pandora and her dad danced to. It is such a beautiful song!. I have been trying to download it but cannot find them anywhere. Someone needs to sign them and the first song they should release is 'No Place Like Home'

Please give Lisa and Camille their own show; the rest of the ladies have become caricatures of themselves. Kyle and Adrienne in particular are tedious to watch, Dana is bizarre and Kim and Taylor add absolutely nothing to the show. Kyle and Adrienne should be ashamed of themselves for the way they treated Lisa.

Was wondeering whether I would watch next season....and that was BEFORE the reunion show (part 1). I adore watching Lisa and Ken and love love love her funny sense of humor. Too bad Adrienne is so uptight that she doesn't get it most of the time. Tired of just about everything with her...including watching her sad marriage. She's married to a terrific guy that she treats like dirt....sorry, but i don't buy that "they're so cute when they fight" bit...she's awful to him and that was one of the reasons i'd decided not to watch next season. Glad Kim's getting help....she needs it, just tired of watching someone who so obviously doesn't want to be on the show. Kyle and Mauricio....sorry....but Mauricio's the best part of that couple. Sorry for Taylor's troubles....but glad it's finally OVER!! Camille was much more likeable this season...and Brandi was a hoot even if she doesn't show much class a lot of the time. So....to sum up....I would only tune in to watch Lisa and Camille....that's only 2 out of the 6....so guess I won't be a viewer next season...and since it's the only Housewives show I watched, guess it's goodbye Bravo!!

Loved the wedding! Pandora was absolutely georgous and brought tears to my eyes! You are one lucky woman to have the guy, and such loving wonderful parents! As for the other drama of the girls, I enjoyed this season, just seemed like a few things were a little childish: like when it seemed like they ganged up on Brandi, that was so high school of Kim and Kyle that I could have puked, on My heart goes out to Taylor and her daughter for all they have been through! Kim needs to get help, anyone with common sense knows that. Her strange behavior said it all. I can't believe she allowed herself to be on the show acting in such a manner. It's so irresponsible of her to keep everyone waiting on Mauricio's birthday, she is a spectacle. Glad she is in rehab. As for the bf, he really does look like a gay bull mastiff! Adrienne and Paul are as amusing and funny as always! I think they make the show. They are down to earth people and yet are very classy at the same time. I always enjoy Lisa V. She can come across as a stuffy snob but I don't think she means to. I can see she has a very warm heart. Brandi, I love her personality, but actually think she isn't all that in the looks department. She is pretty but just ok. The other girls act as if she is some godess and she actually looks on T.V like she needs to gain some weight and get some curves. I am more impressed on how the others look than her. The other girls are fabulous and she is just plain. Camille is fabulous as always. My heart goes out to her and her family bc of the ugly public divorce. Kudos to the show to bring Kelsey's bad side to life, what a creep!

Lovely wedding. Great family! Lisa does have it all.

Why the other house wives have chosen to accuse her of such hidious thing as selling a story ??? They believe a lying rag mag photog but not lisa? I KNOW her restaurants would not flourish if she was ever to do such a thing!

Adrianne and Kyle are jealous and they have both gone WAAAYYYY down in my respect book. They were pathetic!!

Please send Taylor far far away!!

Thanks

Paul's tooting after his colonoscopy was so funny - I love both Adrienne and Paul!!! wish there were more of them - they are classy and can't wait to see more of them!!! I hope Camille doesn't leave the show - she is also one of my favorites - Self-centered Kyle -a bit disappointed in you as your sister Kim was trying to tell you the troubles she was having with her boyfriend , she was late to the hawaii flight because they had been up all night fighting and all you could tell poor Kim was how you always say sorry and she never does - have you ever been in an abusive relationship and every day is a day where you think will I be abused or will it be a peaceful day - and on those abusive days - all you can think about is how can i get out of this situation - not - geesh - I owe my sister an apology for missing my flight because my asshole boyfriend is an asshole - my sister would never question me nor would I question her - it seemed that the only thing you were interested in was an explanation - when you are being abused - explanations do not come easy - you try to think of something that will be accepted but both self-centered you and self centered hunka hunka Mario could not leave it alone - ok done. Love Lisa, Camille, funny Brandy - dislike kyle, taylor- will not go there because do not know the entire story - love Kim for going to rehab - very hard to kick an addiction no matter what kind - hope you are away from that person Ken - he just seemed very strange, and I missed someone sorry =- LIsa? Love her and Ken - Lisa is just so on the mark and so classy - I want to be like her when I grow up - Ken is adorable - Adrienne - love her - Camille - love her - Kyle - Kim - got them all - RHOBH is my favorite - NY 2nd and Orange County 3rd - Atlanta I will not watch - Dana - don't understand your comments - apparent you didn't want the entire shows lol -

Thank God you had the the wedding and its festivities to air this season, the constant Taylor disturbing and disruptive drama, Kyles non stop crying and about nothing that has to to with her, and Kim's unstable disturbing appearances. It's too much for us to take. Like always its Lisa and her family that we can count on to entertain us and admire.

Paul is great. He did a service for all and shows a colonoscopy need not be feared. Adrienne was good support and is a touch of class....not ass Paul. The wedding was totally beautiful. Pandora was so elegant. Lisa and Ken should be so very proud. I had to watch this twice and hope it is on again. I am sad to see the season end. I wish it would go on all yr. round. I love the girls and hope Brandi will be included more as one of the housewives next yr. She is hysterical.

I have enjoyed every minute that Lisa is on the show. It's not just that she is smart, funny, witty and fabulous. She is also kind, gracious, strong, wise and very loving. She enjoys bringing beauty to every situation. I genuinely appreciate her focus on the positive even when she's under attack and so obviously hurt or betrayed by others.

I hope that Taylor gets help but she doesn't belong on the show.

Your blog is my favorite part of BHHW. You are so snarky and funny. Please keep it going.

On January 3rd I had my first colonoscopy. Until I watched last night's episode I did not know much about the actual procedure or what had happened to me. I had been obsessed with the fact that someone had not only touched my butt but stuck something up my butt. I literally had been waking up in the middle of the night in a panic thinking about what had been done to me while I was unconscious. I want to thank Dr. Paul for his bravery in allowing the cameras in before and after his procedure. My anxiety has subsided and I seem to be okay this morning about someone sticking something up my butt. Please let Dr. Paul know that he has made a big difference in one RHOBH viewer's life and mind. I hope he becomes a spokesperson for the colonscopy procedure.

Lovely wedding....poooty poot pooty colonoscopy scenes...I love those two...they may bicker..but it's love bickering...I love them both! I'd hate to see anyone booted from the show...I'd love to see what transpires in all their lives. I, having so little drama in my life, love watching each episode unfold. Keep them all please! Have a great hyatus!!!

I have been to over the top weddings. On BRAVO, I have to say the best wedding by far was Lauri Waring Peterson's wedding.Were you around for that one? Her wedding was jaw dropping. Lisa did pull off a fairytale wedding, it was just a little different. I dont know, the colors reminded me of the Cinderella castle at Disneyland. I could have made a fancier cake for a lot less than 10k. I think this Kevin guy did a lot of overkill or should I say overbill, if indeed they spent 1 million on that wedding.

I'm not sure I would have started the wedding episode with an enema. I think the enema would have been a more natural complement to game night.

Loved, loved the wedding, what a lovely, loving family. Even without all the bling, this wedding was bound to be dear because this family has alot of heart. That sweet son Max, didn't even bat an eye when Mom Lisa asked him to cut his hair.. Also liked the ending party at Kyle's however, would rather not have had that at the end because it seemed like Taylor had to overshadow everyone else all over again...really tired of that focus...

I agree, I welled up a few times myself watching!

It was very nice to see an upbeat show for once until the end. I think the last part with Taylor and the girls could have been edited out.

As for next season, I'll be so sad to see Camille not be a part of the show. Not sure I'd watch next season if Camille is gone but I won't watch for sure if Taylor is back. I just won't be a part of that.

She-she-she...it was a "vanderlishious" wedding! Best wedding I've been to in years. Thank you Ken & Lisa.
