Ep 8: Bravotv.com's Editor ponders the end of Kyle's dinner party, psychics, and being the other woman.

Hello my little Vanderpumpers. Did you enjoy your special dip into the world of SUR? Are you surprised the psychic didn't tell you such a thing was coming? Did you make amends with your former husband's mistress because you were inspired by Brandi? Let's try to put this all into perspective shall we?

Faye-d Out
We return to the dinner party at Kyle's, with Brandi walking out from the whole kerfuffle in the face of Faye's comments. Kyle goes out to try to calm Brandi down, and in the face of that storm out Faye doesn't even feel bad enough to send an orchid. While Brandi's tears are massively flowing, Faye spins her theory that Brandi and Lisa are in cahoots, a theory that doesn't go over too well with Lisa.

After much caterwauling and Kyle's best attempts to smooth things over, Lisa walks out and gets Brandi to finally leave. And comes back in only to leave herself. And another dinner party goes down in the disaster book. . .

Good Vibrations
After all that bad vibes, we see Taylor trying to get herself into a better headspace. Yes, the lady Armstrong has entered into the pantheon of Housewives who have consulted a consultant to the other side. And this lady has a lot of different ideas about things. She's got fire fingers, sacred elixirs, and apparently a mainly to Princess Diana.

Of course, Taylor wants to push on actually answers. She wants to know if she'll have to go to court or if a settlement will be reached. And the lady tells her it shall be -- of course she doesn't tell her exactly how it shall be.

Yes, Taylor is going to have to give up her wedding ring and a few select handbags to cleanse her legal matters. It's pretty heartbreaking. Even though her marriage wasn't all great, but it's a major sentimental piece and I'm sure she wasn't ready to lose it.

Eventually Taylor decides that the ring didn't mean a thing (Kim Z. shout out), and settles the case with it. Finally she can move forward and make peace. Congrats Taylor!

Nama-Stop Talking
Next we see Kyle and Marisa discussing the finer parts of the diner party bust up. Are the girls in high or elementary school? Does Brandi really feel bad? And can I discuss all these high-points while doing Warrior Two?

Yes that's right, they tackled all of the post-party drama mid-yoga.

Seriously, have you ever felt more sorry for a yoga instructor ever? Poor gent was just trying to get folks in shape and he was having to hear the deep particulars of the group's confrontations. You don't see me going to spin class and using it as a therapy session, though perhaps I should. Tomorrow when I go I will spend the session explaining everything wrong with my relationship with my parents in deep detail. And I bet I'll feel both physically exhausted and mentally clear afterwards.

The X Factor
But let's get right to it. The crux of this episode is all about Brandi's big meeting with Scheana. At Lisa's behest, Brandi was finally moved to sit down and potentially accept the apology of her ex-husband's former lover.

Yup, it was going to be awkward.

Scheana did her best to start things off on the right foot, with tears and an apology. Of course, Brandi met those tears with a barb about how she was the only one allowed to cry, so things didn't look super great.

But in the end the ladies managed to find a common ground, and it seems like Brandi will be able to dine at any of Lisa's restaurants while Scheana is working. . . we'll just have to see how much she tips her.

Next week the group tries to make amends over dinner. . . and it doesn't go well. But until then, tell me what you thought of Scheana's pleas for forgiveness, Of Kyle's yoga form while working out, and most importantly what you think happened to Princess Di.

Eileen: I Could Feel the Tension at Kyle's

Eileen weighs in on the tension at Kyle's and shares what she thought of the ladies right out of the gate.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

I really enjoyed seeing Lisa R at home with her girls. You gotta love teenagers, right? I totally related to her situation with her parents. My mom is 92 and was my best friend my entire life. It's been so hard to not have her as my parent anymore. I have become hers, as dementia has slowly crept into her mind. I never feel like I see her enough. Vincent and I would have her come live with us but our family decided the move away from her home 3 hours away would probably kill her. Thank God my brother is living with her. It helps to know that he's there but I still feel guilty and sad not to be able to see her more. It was nice to meet Lisa R's sister and parents. What an amazing artist her father was! I had no idea.

Yolanda is so down to earth and lovely. The real thing. I liked her immediately.

At Lisa V's, her swan attacked Ken. Hmmmmmmmm. I've been attacked by a swan before. I've got my eye on them! and their "feather diapered bottoms"! Hahaha.

It was so great to finally meet all the girls and their husbands. They are very interesting and dynamic people, right out of the gate. Kyle's home is beautiful and very warm and welcoming. I could tell that there was a lot of tension and lots of unresolved stuff going on. It was somewhat confusing because I didn't know all the backstory. Still, Vincent and I had fun sharing stories about "the business" with Kim, etc. And it was a great opportunity to have gotten to know the women better. Well, Brandi a little better than the others! LOL. I thought she was funny and definitely likes to lay it on the table. So to speak.

Merry Christmas and Joyous Holidays to you all!.
