Troupe Beverly Hills

Ep 19: Bravotv.com's Editor sums up a finale full of fights, love, and cake.

on Mar 25, 20130

Tearfully Late
Moments later, Adrienne arrives, tweaking the saying, "It's my party I'll cry if I want to" into something like "It's my frenemies party and I'll cry if I want to." Adrienne explains how tough the separation already is on her and the kids, and it's heinous to watch a family splitting apart. Thankfully she has the ladies (well some of them) there to support her.

Meanwhile, Ken's sense of decorum was rocked that Adrienne didn't come over and apologize for her lateness, while Adrienne was shocked Lisa didn't come by to check on her. Here I default to you fair commenters, who was in the wrong? If you tearfully enter a party is it your responsibility or the hosts to announce yourself?

All this sadness, does cause Lisa to feel that renewing her vows in the midst of the hoopla is a bit disingenuous. Brandi, while wishing that she could take this opportunity to slip in and marry Ken, prods her to celebrate the love she and Ken have, anyway. Particularly since Ken's on borrowed time (so wrong, so hilarious, so Brandi).

What I think is disappointing is that it has never been explained as to why Camille Grammar was not an active part of the show as she has been in the past.   And, why wasn't Adrienne Maloof not made to participate more this season.  I realize that Adrienne is no longer part of the show but it would have been nice to know more about what happened.

My personal complaint after watching the secrets episode. It felt like both the reunion and the secrets episode turned into the Kim/Kyle and sometimes Katherine Hilton show. I am just not interested. I am over Kim's inability to set an alarm clock and Kyle's inability to be sincere and the whole Hilton family dynamic. Some might find them interesting I just don't. I find them contrived. Fake disingenuous with episodes of unjustified maliciousness. I am worried Bravo has drank the cool aid and has become convinced that without the messed up sister's they would not have a BHHW - it is just not so. I guarantee you there are more interesting genuine people in BH.

I've got an idea:  Why doesn't Bravo give Brandi, Lisa and Yolanda a talk show?  I think it would be an instant hit!!  They're all interesting women and each have something different to bring to the show.  It would be so much better than seeing a bunch of squabbling women going after each other all the time!  That's getting REAL old.  Just a thought!!

please make faye go away...if we never have to see her again it would be too soon.. and i think after this year .. if we do see her a lot next year i think Bravo will start to lose viewers cause the hate is there... and why do you want to do that to your viewers...

who ever are the powers that be on this station... please if you could have on there Paul and Ken and Maruico in there own show like air it once a month i think it would show that there are men out there who are funny and strong and great husbands.. also if you can get David and Marisa's husband also that would be a great spin off.. cause you show the women its perhaps times to let the men shine... 

just a thought...cause just because there has been a divorce with Paul and Adrienne i think people are going to miss Paul very much cause he was a nice guy most of the time.. and see him after would be great.. plus it would add to his work.. who knows.. i think it would be fun to see that side.. the men getting together.. for golf.. playing and watching... i would love to see what men would do if they got to go watch lets say tiger woods play and what they would do over a weekend.. drinking and eating good food.. and at the end of the day seeing that they are normal men..

So the reunion was somewhat of a bust.. Way too much emphasis on Kim and her sobrityu. No accountabilty fo Kyle stirring the pot all season and dragging Faye to places she was neither wanted nor invited.? Rake Brandi over the coals about what she says but Faye and Kyle (unless it concerned Kim's sobriety) get a pass? I am rooting for Kim, but if I want to watch a show on sobriety can watch Intervention. Also, was the inattention paid to Taylor because she is not being asked back? Anyway, it was disappointing.

The off the cuff comment ken made was a little off beat, but let's be honest it was the comment of a man who I think, has just had enough of all the bs and hurtful drama directed by that woman towards his wife. Does no one remember Adriene in the lost footage at the beach party house stating 'this is all Lisa' that was a shocker for me, changed my opinion of adriene completely. Also it kinda helps that brandi has been validated with respects to Bernie.. The nutter obsessed chef lol. Glad u pointed out the hilarity of Brandis Ken comment. Your assessment was spot on.

If Adrienne had any maturity at all, even if she had been required to attend Lisa's event, she should have kept the news of her separation out of the news. If it were leaked, because of the tabloids monitoring court filings, then she should have put her big girl panties on and kept her head high and not talked about it. A woman with maturity would have found the host of the party and congratulated them. That was her first duty and priority as a guest. That night was not about her, as much as she wanted it to be. Sometimes we have to put our selfishness aside for other people but I do not believe Adrienne is capable of that.

Don't let them get into real moral political discussions such as nature or nurture in the homosexual. None of them have the intelligence to take a position. Keep it frivolous and spectacular and a train wreck socially and emotionally. We love this dysfunction as it makes us feel like normal nice stable people.

Ok Andy and Execs I'm on a roll here with suggestions:)  There was SO much drama this year with RHOBH I think it would be a nice change to feature the ladies personal lives a little more(ie: Yolanda coping with her disease, Kyle coping with hers, Brandi on her book signing tours, etc) and then have the ladies go on their group trips where they are having fun. I just think each woman has great qualities that we would like to see more of instead of seeing them being so divisive.  Just a suggestion........

When is bravo going to let one lucky viewer get a go with this group?? You could call us "the wild card", spice it up a bit, as a fund raiser for charity, viewers could call in laying down bets as to which girls the wild card will gravitate to....or even better, fire them all, put one regular viewer in the mix of rich bi@#tches and let viewers vote on which hw was a fake....there are many of us who could play the role of BH HW so easily.....I say try it Bravo....you may be on to something big...

I think it is unanimous.  Faye's bitter behind needs to hit the road!  For the rest of these woman, I would like to know how they all feel about Adrienne's duplicity is the Lisa/Brandi saga?  I have not heard one single apology from Kyle, yet.  As for Lisa, she should do herself a favor and stop trying to be friends with Kyle or Kim.  Just let those two sisters go it on their own.  Marissa is simple and a plain bore.  I think Camille lost her common sense when Kelsi dumped her and relocated to New York w/o her. This is probably the right time for Camille to leave, along with Faye. And now, let's cut the cord with Dana (she is the most boring and dull of all of the HWs).  What idiot would go and pay $25,000 for a pair of shades, and then brag about it?  For Taylor, let's give her another season to see how her new relationship fares.  Poor Brandi, love her, but she just can't keep that mouth shut.  Please tell her, it is not necessary to speak everything you think.  Yolanda, by all means, continue to call everyone out on their BS.  Just don't do it at anyone else's anniversary party.  Oh, and Adrienne, so glad you are gone.  I guess that's it for now.

To Andy and Bravo Execs: I think I can safely speak for all of the Brandi fans about this-although we are aware that the reunion has already been taped, we would really LOVE to see you address game night seeing as Kim was not present with the ladies at last year's reunion and it has not been addressed properly. It is really something that needs to be addressed because Kim won't SHUT UP ABOUT IT. We the Brandi fans would like to see Kim's reaction when you air the playback at the reunion in front of Kim, Brandi, Kyle and all the other ladies and ask your "Andy questions" about how her and her sister treated Brandi and then maybe she will see that she was not as "victimized" as she claims to be! Please, please hear us as we want this issue to be over already!!

Being that the Ladies looked so gorgeous for the reunion, especially Lisa and Kim's dress looked so cute, is there somewhere we could see a full view of their stunning dresses?

Why did Adrienne show up at Lisa's house and leave without saying anything her.  Adrienne should have gone to Lisa.  If you are too upset to seek out the hostess, stay home!! 

 

And why do you have single people on a show called "Real Housewives?"  If they are single or become divorced while on the show, you should kick them off.  Maybe that will be an incentive for the women to tend to their marriage and not only the spotlight.  Only Lisa, Kyle and Yolanda should be on the show.  Otherwise rename it the "Real Women of Beverly Hills."

Adrienne is such a fake. Her going to Lisa's and crying about her "separation" was so staged. Notice she managed to get in the remark about kids needing their mother. She is such a witch. Working on her lawyers advice even then!

I am sooooo very glad she is gone. She ruined the show.

Also, it's amusing how Kyle rallied around her so much, but at the reunion she was all about not being close with her.

Maybe people should remember the 10 commandments...remember #9? You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

There is so much lying going on. How can these people sleep at night?!

Brandi may not always be PC (and she will be the first to admit it) but at least you never have to wonder if you are being lied to.

Where's Camille?  Is she in or out?   I'm glad Adrienne's gone.  She's all about money and she's mean to Paul. SOOOOOOpretensious even for BH.   The "tree" stunt was hysterical not pathetic.

It is the responsibility of the guest to greet the host at a party. I can't recall ever waiting around at a party for the host to seek me out. I think it was Adrienne's "last chance" at Lisa to mend things. Also, if anyone noticed Kyle, Mo and Co.  were kind of standing around in eyesight of the door, with their phones in hand;  they were really not surprised that Adrienne was there, (even though Mo pretended to be by saying "Oh look everyone, Adrienne is here....) They probably told her to drop by, it was so convenient that Adrienne didn't have to walk through the party, they were there waiting for her close to the door.

As for Faye...where to begin....I will not watch next season if she is on the show....she has hijacked this show and it is sickening to watch her; she has all of a sudden become moral police or mother of Brandi. She needs take a manners class herself, DO NOT CRASH ANYMORE PARTIES!!!

Thank you Bravo for showing Adrienne the door - now please have Faye follow her out!

I agree that Adrienne was rude and should be out of the cast. But I cannot stand Brandi's irresponsible remarks and gossiping. She feels she has the authority to decide if it is proper for Taylor to date a separated man. Who do she thinks she is??? Everytime she opens her mouth is to say a rude comment over the other ladies!!! I cannot believe people like the way she handles herself!! And Yolanda is an arrogant and gossipier!! She thinks she is above all the others but is the one calling Brandi telling her what Marisa said and she did talk bad about Lisa when shopping in Paris with Kyle and Kim. I saw the scene where she was telling Kim that Lisa didn't really care about her! I liked the show before Brandi got in, and know with the addition of Yolanda, I might consider not watching next season.

Okay - first of all no one knew for sure that Lisa and Ken were to renew their vows.  They thought it was a house warming party!   Ken was totally out of line, saying Adrienne should have seeked them out.  Lisa herself was upstairs and saw Adrienne when she came  down the staris, Ken was no where to be seen, when the gals surrounded Adrienne.  Lisa then could of come over.. Remember this was Adrienne's last air time and was invited to the party.   She was terribly upset, needed to know her friends would rally around her, and left without a scene.  Yolanda ( whom I am sick of) and Brandi (whom I am also sick of) should have just kept their mouth shut (as usual).  What ever happened between Lisa and Adrienne (last year's reunion) has finally booted Adrienne out.  Doesn't anybody see that.  Where was Camille?  She wasn't even mentioned.  This show definately has it favorites from the producers - shame on you!!

How ridiculous did Adrienne look going to Lisa's Vow Renewal Ceremony? She enters without greeting the hostesses throwing the party, goes to a separate seating area and starts to give us a show of sympathy over the collapse of her marriage as if she owns the home she is entering. Did Bravo force her to make that appearance? It just doesn't make sense, she hides most of the season because of the comments Brandi made, personal comments about her family life, but then it's ok to show up to your Arch Enemies home and make a scene, then leave? I give Lisa a lot of credit, I have hosted many events in my home and won't tolerate loud chatter, nor gossip that escalates into women arguing in my home. Did anyone look at the guests in the background while all this cattiness was going on? I would have politely thrown them all out! What they needed at the show was a Countess LuAnn with her, "this is not the right time or place to have theses discussions" with a twirl and Gone with the Wind from our Ms. Universe from the Atlanta Housewives..

 @Kme Taylor was pretty much ignored at the Reunion and it was disappointing.  In fact she hardly responded to anything and looked away from the camera whenever there was a closeup of her!   Why did she do that?

 

But most of the Reunion did center around Kim.  And the 5-minute plus discussions about the word "sober"  and "fail" were boring.  

 

But the highlights to me were Andy's opening statement about Adrienne and then when he threw Adrienne's t-shirt!

@f@voredone99 I was thinking the same thing. Would be great to see women getting along and there is humour and touching moments.. Brandi talking Lisa into the wedding vows was just a slight show of what it could be. If your thinking you need the negativity ..think Sex and the City! That didn't do so bad now did it?

IL60010

 @f@voredone99  I remember when HWoNY first began and most of the episode was about the individuals and their personal lives.  But I would have thoroughly enjoyed seeing the remodeling of Lisa and Ken's new home! 

 

Honestly, I think the problem is that the majority of cast members are not friends, they are acquaintances.  There's a huge difference between a friend and an acquaintance or there is to me anyway.   

 

I know Yolanda said several times, that she wanted to get to know the other girls off camera but no one responded to her except Brandi.

 @p4t1 If you don't care about the RHOBH the way the characters come across, you don't have to watch it. Would you care to see the other reality shows where every other word is a four letter word. Do not dismiss any character , some of us do enjoy watching them. It is not just what they say that  interest the viewer, it is their clothes, jewelry, shoes, the Homes, the parties, the trips. I for one enjoyed the trips they took this season.  The Paris trip was refreshing. Keep them coming Bravo!

 Andy is the perfect host, Polite, diplomatic when he needs to be, assertive when it's called for. Just Great! Love you Andy.

 @MsBravo I noticed that too. I thought Adrienne once again showed her true colors when, after sitting there crying about her children, and not wanting to be away from then, that she said "my kids are at home crying right now" Really??? but you wanted to make sure you got some tears on camera in the finale so you hurried right over?? She should have stayed home with her crying children! She didn't even bother to speak to Lisa or Ken in their own home.

You know, I thought the same thing, Kyle and Mo, knew in advance what Adrienne plan was and they were ready....how disgusting that someone is going to lend themselves to that tacky last act.  I wonder if it was Kyle idea or Faye.

Every time I see that woman I get the hives!  uffff can't take it anymore..

 @ardelle what?!?!?! the guest ALWAYS goes to the host or hostess to greet them and thank them. if A was so upset WHY DID SHE GO TO THE PARTY? 

zookeeper93
zookeeper93

 @ardelle Ken was not out of line, Adrienne was. No one at the time knew it was Adrienne's last air time. That was not decided until she was a no show at the reunion. It may have been her last air time this season, but that was her own doing. She had her chance to shine the very night BEFORE at her own ZIng party at her own house, where she made herself look like a fool. 

This was Lisa's party and Adrienne deserved the back seat yet wanted to still drive. 

Adrienne's own antics got her thrown out. If producers didn't like Adrienne, it is of her own doing. In this world, who is Adrienne Maloof? She is just a person, like any of us. No better for being rich. 

f@voredone99
f@voredone99

 @ardelle Soooo because it was "just a housewarming party" that made it ok for Adrienne to come and do what she did???? Yes that sounds much more reasonable than if she were aware of the vow renewals...........smh

 @ardelle Totally disagree. Adrienne treated Lisa's house like a public place.She came late when Lisa and Ken were busy entertaining other guests.Even if she thought it was just "a housewarming party",she should have not brought her problems there.If it's so painful,stay home and invite Kyle and her clan to YOUR house to cry.Elementary lack of any manners.But we are talking about Adrienne ,so no surprise there.

Please - Adrienne dug her own hole. Lisa did NOT attack Adrienne - Adrienne and her chef Bernie did the attacking. Paul has since apologized to Brandi. Now WHY would Paul do that if Brandi was such a horrible person?

Adrienne showed who she truly is this season - the ugliness came out, her lies were exposed and she ran and hid. No character, no class, no integrty. Just a spoiled, entitled rich bitch who is used to being catered to. She is so consumed by jealousy of Lisa that she put herself on the cutting block. She wanted fans to choose ... and we DID!

(She not only let the fans down, but also Kyle, Kim, Taylor, Camille and Faye - who defended her at every turn!)

What a piece of work and a poor excuse of a woman!

 @ardelle Courtesy dictates that the guest find the host, not the host seek out a late guest. Adrienne attended for the attention. The favorites are the one's with common sense and call out the bad behavior of the immature, developementally stunted antics of Kyle, Kim and Adrienne. Marisa was kept from falling over the cliff.
