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!
I want to mention how great the ladies looked skiing. Their bodies are amazing, especially Lisa!!! She has junk in her trunk, and it looks great!!!
ummm .. what's the deal with no blogs from the housewives? Are they waiting for each other to blog first so they can read and react to the blog? Come on Bravo execs ... both NJ and BH housewives are blowing it for their viewers ....
Seriously, I've been skiing BC for 5 years and can absolutely confirm that all these ladies were indeed skiing the bunny hill. It has about a 5 degree slope. Did they stay on that hill the whole time? Good gracious there is so much more to see and explore. I can also, however, confirm that the cookies are some of the best in the world. Can't wait to meet JJ this spring to find out the whole scoop! Hope my boys get her for lessons this year ;-)
What has happened to the ladies blogs? Are we to have an executive producer blogging for the entire Second season? The big draw to this program for me was reading the ladies blogs after each show. My favorite shows are the New Jersey and Beverly Hills shows. If the ladies aren't going to blog, then I am not going to watch.
What was up with Lisa making out with her dog?!!! It was almost as bad as Ken letting him drink from a $500 wine glass at the dinner party.
LOVE LOVE LOVE Camille this year already!! Vast improvement from last year when I despised her. She's actually showing us who she this this time around--GREAT job Camille!! Loving you more with every wise-crack!
Lisa, when you say to Taylor your husband has his opinion on counceling. Well a reminder Paul is the one who ASKED Taylor what was going on with her...not your husband. So he had no right saying what he did. No one asked him. We now see why your "weak" you can't call him out when he's wrong and do everything he says. Don't pass judgement, cause you never know what your marriage holds.
To whom it may concern, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the theme song for the Beverly Hills Housewifes, please don"t change it ever.
Go, Lisa!! It looks like Bravo has decided you're the villan this season, but we still love you. You aren't afraid to speak your mind and you have a terrific mind. I loooovvve this: "Hello, Beaver Creek. Are you going to help these creaky beavers get up the mountain?" Pure gold. Thanks, Lisa and I hope the editing changes to show you as the stand-up gal we all admire.
Why are all of the housewives being so mean towards Lisa? What happened? Even Adrienne's chef is making rude comments. What did we miss?
Last season you gave us behind the scenes info- which is why many read your blog. This is just a sugar coated episode summary.
Okay, no offense, but if the Housewives aren't blogging this season than no one really wants to read the editors and producers' blogs.
Stop with the asking about the ladies blogging! Use some common sense. There was a death so perhaps they don't want to blog because there are the idiots that will broach that subject. So again..... let's clue in here.
Loving Camille this season too! Didn't last season but Kelsey made me love her. "suck it"...kate or Kayte. However u spell it!
Also. Why didn't Kyle freak out on this plane trip. I thought it was acting last time. Still like her though!
Does anyone know which Gucci bag Taylor had in episode 2 when they were on their way to Colorado?!?!?! Style name, number, anything!!
I understand why Camille was such a wackjob last season, but she drove me crazy. Now this season, she is healing and responding to the tough sitution remarkably! She is staying up beat and trying to start anew. I would hope to show even half the class she has shown in a situation like that! Props to you lady!
Firstly, thumbs up to Taylor for having tried all she could to save her marriage.
Secondly, Kyle saw Taylor’s highly vulnerable state of mind, and she was being a good friend to Taylor during the dinner by being there for her when she needed someone to hear her out.
Thirdly, no matter how much Ken is entitled to his opinion, his comment was undeniably in the wrong place, ill-timed, and insensitive to Taylor’s well-known personal struggles. But he was sensitive to Kyle’s word “offended” and even attacked her with Lisa’s help. Kyle’s correct choice of word was confirmed when Taylor used exactly that same word to answer Ken’s question by saying, “I was OFFENDED that . . .”.
Fourthly, Lisa did not give Ken a gentle indication to apologize. In its place, she further aggravated the couple’s position by coming up with an excuse to leave, that no one found credible, to get Ken out of his faux pas. Ken is a grown man that should have been quick to say “I’m sorry”, but he did not. Instead, the couple chose to run away from their self-inflicted problem.
Also, Ken should have not fed his dog from the wineglass which is inappropriate table manners and disrespectful to the hostess. Then he drank from the same glass which is anti-hygienic. Uh! It’s insanitary to have pets at the table because they constantly release hair which may fall on the food.
Lastly, congratulations to Adrienne and Paul whom did an excellent job embarrassing themselves in front of their guests. This couple seems to be the next to need therapy.
I am guessing that the ladies are not blogging because of the loss of Taylor's husband and it is out of respect and concern for her and her child. I would imagine, or at least hope, that they are rallying around Taylor and that is why they have not been on the blogs this season. This is just my guess though.
Give it rest ppl...someone from this show recently passed away. Im sure the reason the ladies are not blogging is to give them time to grieve.
I love Lisa and Ken. Lisa you are a classy lady and I love the relationship between you and your husband.
The problem I continually see with Kyle, is that she can be the voice of reason or defuse a situation...but instead she just adds fuel to the fire. The Situation at the dinner table with Ken ....all Kyle had to say was Ken is a great guy and he didn't mean it the way Taylor took it...but no instead Kyle comes out of the bathroom with a attitude against Ken. It's almost as though Kyle will only defend Taylor .....not her sister, not her good friend Lisa.....only Taylor.Kyle you are not a loyal friend or sister.
Lisa please let us see the you we did last year. You've everyone's favorite all time housewife. I know you understand who the real trouble maker was last year. I just think you are not going to put up with it anymore.
Ken didn't say Taylor was weak for going to therapy. He said if he would go to therapy he would FEEL weak. A dinner conversation, especially started the way Paul did by yelling down the table "what is going on" is open to all at the table. At the time, Taylor was examining her marriage and whether to continue in it. She's had problems with Lisa since last season because Lisa advised her to stay out of Kyle and Kim's business. Also when Taylor hinted of problems in her relationship with Russell, Lisa hinted that Taylor needed to weigh the fact that she wanted to be happy vs whether she wanted the Beverly Hills lifestyle. Lisa, in her cameo shot hinted somewhat of the same. When you are a "fragile" state as Taylor claimed to be at that time, you can be vulnerable and think things are aimed at you and they are not. But Kyle, being the "I want to be in every scene" person that she is, should not have said "I don't blame you, I felt it was a little offensive". I don't like Kyle, ever since she treated her sister so poorly last season. I see that Adrienne is trying to get more camera time as well by mistreating her husband..too bad.....another marriage gone away.
Will everyome quit going on and on about the blogs from last year? Things change as surely you know from just watching this show.
Lisa, you are the only lady in the group. Kyle needs to shut up and mind her own business. Kim, I'm still worried about you. Adrienne lay off your husband. Camille, I don't trust you as far as could throw you. Taylor, wishing the best.
And Ken with Lisa is the best on the show.
I love how Lisa doesn't edit herself! She is an intelligent woman and looked amazing in her white jacket and hat!!
In the minority here, but I thought Lisa acted a little too entitled last year, and it's gotten worse with the first two episodes. Ken was wrong saying what he did to Taylor; it was ungentlemanly to say the least. And the dog? Listen carefully manner deprived VDP's... dogs do not have a place at the table, whether it is a picnic table or the luscious table at that dinner party. And letting that dog's 'tp' tongue drink out of that beautiful goblet? What's the matter with you people?
Now at BC, LVDP is still acting like she knows more, and better, than anyone else, and worse, that she deserves to. I hate to sound like an 'ugly American', but please dear Brits, learn some manners.
Thank you "Millers Mommy" for saying exactly what I was thinking...Sheesh people use some common sense along with a dash of empathy!
While I miss the blogs from the ladies, I can certainly understand why they aren't blogging given the circumstances. Hopefully they will feel up to blogging later in the season. I don't know why everyone is getting all up in Ken and Lisa's grill. The man didn't say that anyone who goes to therapy is weak. He said that HE wouldn't go to therapy because HE would feel weak. There is a significant difference in those 2 statements - unless everyone thinks that he is not entitled to his own feelings in any given situation. I wish Ken & Lisa would've been a little more gracious about it (as has been their practice this past season) but I think they were right. People need to listen to what he actually said, not what they think he said.
I'm loving the season already! BUT.... I'm not sure why they are making Lisa as the bad person? lisa has always been my fave housewife.
