To a Terrible Tea

Ep 13: Bravotv.com's Editor imagines a tea party that isn't dramatic, but is served by handsome men.

Hello my little teapots. Here is my handle, let's pour the drama out.

We open this episode with Kyle having some problems with her auxiliary closet. As she struggles with how to get her rack in order (thankfully with Mauricio's help), she's also struggling with a bigger issue: her friendship with Lisa. Yes the former BFFs are having a tete-a-tete to discuss defenses and lack thereof. Lisa barely lets Kyle through the door before getting right into her ownership in SUR and all the various drama surrounds. Pour the lady a glass of rose first!

In the end, things are solved, but not exactly hunky dory solved. Lisa and Kyle's pal-dom seems forever altered: like a pair of traveling pants that perhaps has traveled too far or been hemmed too short. There's no going back to best friends breaking into a hotel room or taunting each other with llamas. It's a cordial, llama-free life for them.

Meanwhile in other semi-domesticated land animals and friendship news, Yolanda and Brandi are hanging out with some horses talking about lawsuits. Yolanda sadly can't afford to buy Bella all the ponies in the world (just the one), but what she can provide is support for Brandi. What does that mean? Well it doesn't mean back up at Lisa's upcoming tea party (sadly) but it did mean uttering a line I've been nervous to hear all season: "Who is Adrienne Maloof in this world?" Isn't this a question we could all ask ourselves daily? Who is Kim Moreau in this world? Someone who rates people's friendships based on llamas for a living, as it turns out.

And so the day of the tea arrives. Taylor arrives, vibrator in hand. Jax and Peter arrive, muscles for holding scones and non-tea-based beverages at the ready. Brandi arrives in time to give Taylor a tour of the grounds and do as we all would and imagine those grounds are her very own. And Kim, well Kim doesn't arrive because of an incident with her dog.

Let's talk about the splendid delivery of said news. Well now we know that Lisa Vanderpump has a black phone in her bathroom. And we know exactly how she looks when reacting to news that a friend can't attend her tea party for adults because a large, recently acquired dog has potentially undone an elective surgery.

Thankfully Kim is fine. And the party rolls on in her absence.

After Ken explains his non-discriminating beliefs to women lying down, Kyle and Adrienne arrive with Faye in tow. The madcap reaction to Faye's appearance was truly a delight. It was like the women had never seen a person before. Oh is that Faye!?! Quick run through a wall and leave a human sized imprint. Or duck behind something comically small.

The wackiness continued as the tea went on. Lisa, as she's wont to do, did her best to keep Brandi in line (you toast everyone!), but it wasn't Miss Glanville that needed minding. Taylor had a taste not for crumpets, but for trouble. So dropping a quick joke about gymnastics and liability insurance turned the whole evening over to antics quite quickly.

After creating a splendid diversion (carry that arrangement in here), Lisa tried to get things back on track. But it was all too late. The kettle boiled. And before you know it the talk of tweets, Bernie, and receipts was at a fever pitch.

Truly there was a lot to sort out. Who is suing who? What hell hath Bernie wrought? Where are Taylor's backflips? How cold was it that people resorted to wearing bathrobes? And it culminated in no answers, just Lisa desperately trying to get things on track by yelling, "it's over!"

And so the stars align for another White Party cloaked in tension. What will happen? Will someone be turned away? Will Kim Richards inquire, "Are you kidding me," again? Will we find out who Adrienne Maloof is in this world? Leave your guesses for next week's antics in the comments.

Brandi: Kim Is a Survivor

Brandi puts herself in Kim's shoes and congratulates the other ladies on their success. 

This episode was filled with many tears for me. First I can't imagine how helpless Yolanda must have felt not being able to get to her daughter's side. It really hit home for me with only having my children 50% of the time. There is nothing worse as a mother then knowing your kids need you, and you cannot get to them. Thank goodness for dads and stepparents. I have not yet had to release one of my children out into this cold, hard, cruel world. I can't imagine how emotional and worried I will be when I do. I mean I'm already nervous, and I have years before that happens. All I can do is be the best mother I can be and prepare my kids to the best of my ability and then really the rest is up to them…scary!

I literally have been watching Eileen Davidson on soaps operas since I was in middle school and that was a long time ago. I'd never met her despite having an ex-husband from the soap opera world, as well, but always thought she played a great villain and was very pretty. Cut to the Emmys and being in the business for so long. Congrats!

I really enjoy doing my podcast Brandi Glanville Unfiltered. It's fun, and the more I practice at it, the better I get. I've been plugging away at my podcast for about a year now and am finally starting to make a little money doing it. Since my divorce, I've come to realize that nothing is forever, and it's always good to have a skill and/or trade should I need to work until the day I die. With my expensive children, I just may need to do so. So I'm very thankful to my agent Alec who talked me into trying this and to Norm Pattiz for the opportunity.

I can't imagine having my ex-husband living with me down the road after our divorce and nursing him through an illness, all while planning our child's wedding.

Brandi Glanville

Watching Kim and Monty prepare for Brooks wedding also brought tears to my eyes. Kim really has been through soooo much in such a short life, and she really is a survivor. I can't imagine having my ex-husband living with me down the road after our divorce and nursing him through an illness, all while planning our child's wedding and taking care of the rest of the family as well. This woman is carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders and handling it better then I ever think I could. Brooke made a gorgeous bride and everything looked perfect.

Lisa Vanderpump officially has a star on the walk in Palm Springs, which suits her perfectly as she has always talked about her love of the place as well as wanting to bring all the women to the house they always stay at and love so much. Congrats!
