Hello there my little truth cannons. Are you finding your truth has caused some troubles? And you can't sit down to dinner with some ladies because of it? Let's evaluate this episode and see if it's possible to break bread with folks in the wake of The Secret-gate.
We open the episode right in the thick of Brandi and Adrienne’s confrontation. Adrienne leaves in a huff, with Kyle sort of pawing at the door wondering what's gone on (pensively pawing at doors means this was bad, it's the prime indicator of a truly heinous Housewives fight).
In the aftermath, everyone reacts. Kyle's first reaction is to ask Kim, whyever in the world she would have said something to Adrienne now. Kim defends herself saying that it simply couldn’t wait. Mauricio, on the other hand blames Brandi, and goes up to her and says as much. Meanwhile, Taylor has issues with the way that Paul spoke to a woman and the whole outing of a secret reminds her of a certain situation from last season, which enrages Camille. Hoopla abounds! Brandi escapes with her friend Darrin, who just desperately wants a glass of wine. I think all of the women deserved a carafe of wine after this. Lord.
Faye needed to "butt out" entirely. She thinks more of her opinions than most people think of her. It was absolutely none of her business at all. I really was embarrassed for Faye being such a butt-in over nothing she was ever a part of. Good example of "Kyle" stirring the pot and sitting back watching the fireworks. Kyle's dinner party, Kyle should have stepped in and ask Faye to "please change the subject". Faye was totally annoying to me. I sure hope she is not being considered a "new Housewife" I am afraid you would lose some viewers. She is way too "self-righteous" for me. Not only that, that air she totes around with her is disgusting.
"Faye, Faye GO AWAY, Come Again another Day.............NOT!!!!!" Faye is rude, no class, to be invited to someones house and act like that is horrible. Since Faye didn't have any manners, Kyle should have and threw her out! I have had to do that it's no fun but if a guest acts inappropriate in my home or treats my guests unkind they are asked nicely to leave. It should have never got to the point of Brandi having to defend herself. KYLE I would be happy to send you a "Manners Book" and don't have anymore dinner parties until you read one. Then when they leave you talk about people behind their backs including your sister. You didn't have to make that snide comment about not inviting you to her kids birthday (it's because you don't have manners). Why is it you can condemn someone for letting out Adrienne's family secret when you go all over telling yours about your sister. She needs your support to stay sober or you need to stay away your are toxic to her recovery. Brandi if you happen to read Kyles blog, she is not your friend and never will be. Faye and Kyle are perfect for each other, they have to much time on their hands. Kyle is jealous of you Brandi, you are tall and much prettier so she has the "little woman complex."
I've been a loyal Bravo viewer for many years. I have watched every single "Real Housewives" franchise since its inception with the women from OC, even when I seriously disliked one or more of the regulars on a show. However, if Bravo producers decide it will be fun and interesting and create more drama if they bring Faye Resnick on the show, I will have reached my BS limit. I hate the "B" word, but Faye deserves that title in spades. She had no business getting involved in the Brandi/Adrienne issue, and claiming she "has to speak up" and "tell it like [she sees it]" is even more BS: she's simply a mean, spiteful bully. Is this a hypocritical or contradictory opinion, given Brandi's "Truth Cannon" habit, as a minority of the viewers' comments suggest? No, I don't believe so, and this is why: when Brandi let some cruel accusations towards Kim fly during a dinner party last season, she did so only after suffering through hours of the Richards sisters' Mean Girl antics; she reacted badly, but who among us hasn't reacted in a less-than-stellar fashion when faced with similar torture? Similarly, Brandi had been dealing with her issues with Adrienne (and, at the time, Paul) for quite some time and, more to the point, she dealt with them silently - off camera, at least, and even then she could not have spoken to more than a few people; if she'd talked to more than a select few it would've quickly hit the gossip websites. She didn't vent to the group - or any member of the group on camera, until Miss-Stir-The-Pot-And-Watch-It-Boil-Over Kyle asked Brandi to explain her issues with Adrienne. Did Brandi go one step too far? Probably, but again: who among us hasn't blurted out a true-but-no one-talks-about-it secret to the wrong people and/or at the wrong place or time? She wasn't being vindictive; she was getting it off her chest after being asked, basically, to get it off her chest.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not defending Brandi's every action, only the actions which "Queen of the Mean Girl Club" Faye Resnick brought up in her rant against Brandi. Brandi has said or done some stupid, childish, and/or tasteless things on more than a few occasions. However, on the great scale of Real Housewives' Poor Behavior, Brandi falls way, WAY behind the vast majority of the entire group - including most of the women on the BH franchise. If Faye Resnick had even a few more hours of on-camera time, her cattiness, bitchiness, and ruthlessness would overshadow even the worst of Brandi Glanville's poorly aimed remarks and unseemly behavior.
how come camille is not in the promo photo of the housewives with their hands out?
i would much rather see her than taylor or brandi on the show.
too funny, i love the way Faye is speaking in this very low, calm voice. Poor Marissa Zanuck is like a deer in the headlights, haha. and is Lisa doing a shot in one take.
Also, why is Taylor friendly with brandi all of a sudden. She is another one that i can't stand and i wish would leave the show.
i can't stress enough how much i hate Brandi. why is she even on the show? just to start trouble, i'm guessing. she is such a skank. she's the only one that would come to a ladies dinner with an outfit cut down to her navel. camille has prob a better body and she is always all covered up. also she keeps saying that Adrienne is not smart and hasn't accomplished anything in her life. she must know that Adrienne runs a major international corporation with her brothers and beside that is college educated. Brandi was supposedly a model, though you can't find any pictures of her and then married a B list actor, who dumped her, so again why is she on this show. and i think Lisa is only being friendly with her this season because she is her little protege, the way cedric was. she loves having these people kiss her ass.
Can't you replace Kyle with Marisa? She's much more interesting and at least I know I won't ever have to risk seeing or hearing Faye on the show ever again....
can't stand brandi. I was so glad to see faye giving her the business... she deserves it! And no one seems to call her on her bull, except Mauricio (bless you, Mauricio!) and Faye. Wish I'd been there - I'd have let it rip. This is one mean girl. And stupid, to boot.
Bravo, please consider replacing some cast members ...sick of Kyle and her husband and Kim never seems to be all there. Also, Taylor adds nothing to the show. Please bring some real housewives of BH on the show. More ladies like Lisa and Yolanda.
No more Faye. Please Bravo, no more Faye. I don't want to quit your show, but I will be forced to, if you bring back Faye.
I must admit, this show is my 'guilty pleasure' as I do not watch any of the other housewives shows except for Orange County. I will do crossword puzzles from People Magazine rather than watch Faye become a regular on this show.
Since Kim's not posting...I WANT AN UPDATE!! She's made herself the problem child and we deserve an update!
Foonda She did post and explain her reasons for telling A & P at Mauricio's event. She is getting bashed a bit in the comments...
Is flowers (even ugly arrangements like the one Adrienne sent) the cure-all for whatever social blunders are made in Beverly Hills, no matter the situation? Not only was Faye's remarks uncalled for, it was so stupid!
I agree with the majority - if Faye is part of next season's RHOBH, I won't be watching. There's enough smug, know-it-all, obnoxious people in my real life - don't want or need exposure to any more, thank you.
If Faye is brought on as a housewife, you have just lost a loyal viewer. She is not just a "controversial"housewife..she is a bottom feeder and her behavior in the past is beyond vile. As we all saw on the last episode, she is still lacking scruples. No new leaf has been turned, she is still socially unacceptable in most circles.
PLEASE editor and producers. I have been a loyal watcher of all of these shows, I would request NO FAYE, MORE YOLANDA!!
realhousewifeofdenver I second that! I refuse to watch Faye, I have no interest in her whatsoever. Would love to see more Yolanda!
realhousewifeofdenver Definitely agree. Yolanda is an interesting person - straight up and no nonsense.
whatever1 I AGREE !!! Don't like Faye at ALL ! She thinks she Know's it all ! PLEASE PLEASE take her off the show !
Wy has this becomeThe Brandi Show? She has become unwatchable for me. Thank goodness for my remote so I can mute her.
Sadiebelle55 Friend....your unwatchable beliefs are the minority. happy muting to you
I think Brandi should have told Faye to STFU! She should have told Marisa "thank you" and told Kyle to fight her own battles! Kyle's so slick at stirring the pot, then sitting back & smirking.
hobo-cali true. And Kyle has a habit of waving her finger in people's face when they disagree with her. She makes my skin crawl.
We should had a memo of some kind to warn us that Faye will be dominating this episode of RHOBH , so won't waste my DVR time on taping that episode..
TheRealPalisadesHousewife Beautifully stated! Next episode looks like more with Faye. UGH. I never thought I would say this however.... I prefer Taylor over faye!
You need to bring Charlie Sheen on an episode to lead a seminar on anger management and the importance of self control.
PLEASE do not bring Faye on board as a housewife...it is bad enough to have Kyle, Taylor, and Adrienne in the mix. We don't need another big mouth hypocrite!
I'm glad I'm not the only one irritated with that last dinner party episode. I'm not saying Brandi is perfect but she didn't deserve that. Faye's point was that Brandi lashes out with inappropriate behavior - fine, I get that. But nothing annoys me more than a righteous hypocrite. Any point Faye had melted away due to HER behavior. In theory, her behavior was displaying the same thing she was calmly attacking Brandi on. If she really wanted to have a discussion and have a real conversation then she would have let Brandi talk and she would have let Marisa talk. Faye in addition to wanting to defend your friends should be polite to realize that Kyle is the one who invited Brandi and should not attack her friends guests. If Brandi was that awful then don't you think she would have been in Faye's face wagging her finger?? She handled that so well.
Kyle is a hypocrite. She should have been pushing Adrienne to apologize to Lisa after the reunion epic fail but all we see is Kyle pushing Lisa to mend the fences. Sometimes, the smaller person, Adrienne needs to make the first move, in both the Lisa disaster and Brandi fiasco. Adrienne has no conscience of having lived a lie. She's only mad that the life of lies is breaking her house of cards. No one to blame but herself. SHE ruined her reputation by building it on lies.
