Hello my BHers. After the girls-gone-wild antics of Ojai, did you think we'd have another week of love fests? A jubilant episode filled with water gun fights and egg tosses back in the 90210 zip? Sadly that’s only half the case. Eggs were tossed, but they were far secondary to the accusations that were hurtled about. Let's recap.
I Am The Egg Man
We open with sweet Mauricio once again pranking someone to present them with a new car. It's a little confusing why he decided eggs would be such a good rouse for this one, but it worked. Congrats Alexis, aren't you glad that you aren't the subject of high school bullying, but instead are the owner of a sweet new ride? See, Mauricio made that gift even more delightful! The only way it could have been better would have been if Mauricio had toilet papered the car. Or perhaps put Alexis' underwear in the freezer as just an additional prank.
Next we see Brandi having a sitdown with her dear gay-gent. She's still shocked that the other ladies, despite their oodles of money, can't just be happy for her. She's also a little shocked that she has to put her picture on her tome. Oh Brandi, you goof. Of course people want to see your face. You using the F-word in the title is not enough for them to recognize that it's your book! However, if you can't get them to publish the title with the F-word, Truth Cannon is a fairly great alternate title.
You Got SUR-ved
Next we see Lisa prepping for a menu tasting at Sur. She's beginning the evening slightly miffed as one of her servers has pissed off a VIP client. After attempting to get some backstory from her boyfriend Jax, Lisa laws down the law with dear Stassi. Because she was drinking and then giving customers attitude, Lisa sends her home. Don't mess with the Pump, girl. I'm not sure if you've heard, but it's her rules and all.
I think that Brandi is manipulative and mean spirited. I think that she intentionally says whatever she thinks will cause the most hurt to a person. She is beautiful - until she opens her mouth, and all of that crap comes out - it really makes her ugly inside and out. There is no being friends with someone like that - she will stab you in the back as soon as look at you.
Andy was kissing Kyle's ass for two seasons, let's see if that trend continues this season. Adrienne is despicable human being. She sued Brandi for nothing, just out of desperate feeling of retaliation.
Totally #teambrandi! As I understand the situation, Adrienne successfully sued Brandi for defemation. Adrienne is known as an infamous liar/ over exaggerator. Therefore, if Brandi repeated one of these fallacies of Adrienne's or simply repeated town gossip; it's ridiculous that she should be singled out and punished.
Adrienne is a hypocrite. It's seems to me she slandered Lisa, but threatens to sue Brandi.
Its more like a "truth grenade" that Brandi detonates with her teeth, throwing it in the room to watch the carnage....I noticed she has tossed several this season, since she isn't wearing a boot cast, she can get out in a hurry....
Everyone knows that Brandi will call it what it is. But what disturbs me is both Paul and Mauricio flew to Sacramento to "WALK A MILE IN A WOMANS SHOES." Why would they do that when it was obvious it was for show and not what they truly believe. Look at the scene. You have Adrienne and Paul verbally abusing Brandi ( in her face) and Mauricio just looking on or ignoring the issue. Mauricio or his wife should have stopped it and also should have tossed Kim out for starting the rift in the first place. Instead Mauricio was defending Paul and Adrienne. That whole ordeal was sick. Those shoes should have been tighter!!!!
and why is everyone getting mad at brandi but said nothing about camille last season? doesn't really seem fair the way everyone treats brandi.
faninmiami Brandi isn't a *yes-man*. There are people who consider themselves more important than they are and surround themselves with yes-men. Take a person who has an abhorrence to hypocrisy mixed with the emotional chip still on her shoulder from her ex husband's philandering, and you have Brandi. She is not impressed with these inauthentic characters and money. Kyle and Adrienne are not used to an upstart gal with no money or connections telling their fake butts where to get off.
People want to know why Lisa likes Brandi - well first of all Brandi is honest (to a fault at times) and Lisa is honest and thats why. Second Lisa is no fool she knows that every single time she turns her back Kyle puts a knife in it. Kyle is a major pot stirrer. She starts things then sits back and watches the trouble it causes. She is a troublemaker but not as big as a troublemaker as her sister Kim. Kim is a has been and is so jealous and needs to get off the show. Taylor needs to go too. Now Brandi tries to make peace with Kim the week before and in return Kim throws her under the bus at Maurcio's event. Kyle needs to make her sister accountable for starting the fight and ruining the party. By the way Brandi does have a truck driver mouth sometimes but so did Paul and Adrienne at the party.
trishrn23 Brandi has more than truck drivers mouth. She thinks she's cute and the truth is she very unclassy and doesn't know how to behave.She doesn't like anyone not even herself . She's an idiot and a self proclaimed Tramp. She needs to be taken off the show. She's hanging around Lisa to see what she can get from her she's the next Cedric.
Why would anyone who wants to withhold information that important to them even consider a reality series! I just don't understand it. If one person knows a 'secret' then it's no longer a secret, and you cannot suddenly cry foul about it. Was what Brandi did right? That would be a big HELL NO, however, she is one of the few housewives who actually owned her mistake in a blog and did not try to put on someone else. For that, I give her props. She was still wrong. As for the rest of them, I have been watching since the original Orange County, when it was about women having fun and their indulgences and struggles. All of the series are now about women promoting books, booze, slim wear, jewelry, wine, make up, and botox and it's virtues. Bravo, please rethink and lets get to back a more light hearted, entertaining 'reality' show. Women supporting women, women who are successful in tough circumstances...not women who complete as to who got their hair cut first, who has a hotter body, or who has the bigger lips, which by the way, we know who that is!!! : )
I'd like to see Brandi & Taylor gone from Beverly Hills; Vicki gone from Orange County; Ramona and Aviva gone from NYC; and Joanna gone from Miami. Then do away with Atlanta altogether. I don't know what to say about NJ, except those women need a reality check. Thank heavens you have not brought back WDC.
Esther194 soooo...you mean get rid of the cooky entertaining ones and keep all the mean bully girls?
I side with Brandi, Lisa and Yolanda
Kim caused the whole event. She should have minded her own business. Kim could have texted Adrienne the information in advance, left her a voice mail, or defended Adrienne at the table. She chooses to do this at an event. Ridiculous!
Kyle asks Brandi about Adrienne at SUR knowing that nothing good could come from that question. If she was really Adrienne’s friend why go there with Brandi.
Taylor was stressed from the Paul reaction. But, she still hates Brandi.
Adrienne and Paul acting like 2 crazy nuts. I think this is who they really are. If someone said something about me that was false I would just say the person is a liar. I have a feeling that Brandi told the truth. I don’t think Brandi should have spilled the beans, but Adrienne suing is over the top and just puts more fuel on the fire.
I would not be surprised if “what is Adrienne secret” becomes the top Google search.

TEAM BRANDI, LISA AND YOLANDA!
To be honest, I was completely disgusted by Brandi's mouth when she first appeared last season and made negative comments referring to her ex husband. I thought she was super immature and crass...
Then I saw the Game Night episode at Dana's house (aka game night from hell/ mean girls part 2). I saw how petty and catty the other women were towards Brandi. They pretty much bullied her...
When it comes to brass taxes, YES Brandi has a BIG MOUTH. She cusses incessantly and has definitely crossed the line on more than one occasion. HOWEVER, She is more authentic, genuine and sincere than the vast majority of the cast (Lisa and Yolanda excluded of course!).
She doesn't go after people with a vindictive personality, she merely fires back.
She's got a bunch of filthy rich women hating on her, and honestly she knows what she signed up for and she isn't taking crap from anyone. MORE POWER TO HER.
Unlike Dana and all the other extra housewife wannabes, she isn't afraid to hold her own and refrain from sucking up to the likes of these people.
Gotta love someone whose demeanor is GENUINE.
She may swear like a pirate, cross a lot of red lines, but her HEART is in the right place.
And to be honest, if anyone should be threatening LEGAL RETRIBUTION, LISA should have slammed ADRIENNE A LONG TIME AGO FOR SLANDER AND DEFAMATION.
Adrienne is a vindictive woman with absolutely no moral values.
"SOMEONE'S CRYING" does not amount to, "Kim, are you ok?"
Absolutely no compassion. Her gloating about getting a better room than Lisa after she just made an "apology" for her wrongdoing?
The minute she made a big ordeal over Pandora's bachelorette weekend at Planet Hollywood instead of her business entity (The Palms) was my first clue at how petty she was.
Don't even get me started on Kyle and the rest. (Camille is cool, just rather absent and too comatose when drama happens-good thing though)
I guess if I have to pick a team it's Brandi/Lisa. But Brandi does need to learn to control her mouth as it causes major drama in many areas of her life. I lost respect for Adrienne for accusing Lisa at the reunion. Now I lost even more respect for her for automatically going to the "Lawsuit" comments. Is that what people in BH do? Threaten lawsuits if someone says something they dont like? How about talking to the person, in private?!?!?!? Don't these people know how to act like adults? Oh wait, No one would be watching if it wasn't the "Dysfunctional Houswives of BH"
Adriane is a wonderful person, plus is smart and successful business woman. Kim did the right thing, why the other women were waiting to tell Adriane? The timing was not good, but definitively she needed to know, the sooner the better. I don't enjoy Brandy at all. I change the channel every time she is talking.
Ph If you do your research, you would know that the fortune George Maloof Sr. created has been all but lost by his children's management of all he built.
Def Team Adrienne, why is this season portraying her so negatively? She is highly successful and a wonderful mother. Brandi is entertaining but she needs to stop bashing her old friend publicly, she needs to hash it out with Adrienne personally, instead of telling everyone else. Kim did the right thing, just at the wrong time. Get it together ladies!
Brandi, just repeated the truth and in order to sue her, the Maloofs have to prove it's a lie.I don't believe it's a lie. I like Brandi but her immature behavior is over powering who she is. She really doesn't fit in this group, more like the RHOA or RHONJ. I will take Brandi over Adrienne any day.
I really like Brandi, however, she is becoming a caricature of herself. Just because her trademark is "telling it how it is", she needs to tone it down for her own good. Loose lips sink ships Brandi.
You really went too far. Regardless of what the issues where, I don't think you (or anyone) needs to out anyone like this. Be an adult and confront the person privately. The bottom line for me is that this could potentially affect the children and anything that affects them should be totally off-limits.
On another subject, please stop bashing your ex for the sake of publicity. Believe me, you only hurt your children and yourself in the end. Bite your tongue and take the high road.
I don't know how to put this gently so I won't. Kim is a piece of s***. When people approach me with gossip about me I always wonder why they feel the need to tell me hurtful things. I think the person in Kim's position is the mean one. And look at how this awful human scored! She ruined Kyle's evening! She upset Adrienne and Paul so much they had to leave! She hurt Brandi's reputation so that one day she might be as badly thought of as Kim already is. Way to go, hate girl Kim.
Burr I couldn't agree more. I always wonder why people want to tell me what someone has said behind my back. I always tell the person " well if they lack the courage to say it to my face, it's not important". I don't care what people say about me behind my back never have. I'm not sure why it's never bothered me but is doesn't.
I also don't participate in gossip. If I was at that table I would have told Kyle it's not really your place to ask Brandi about Ad stop being so nosy, Then I would have told Brandi maybe you should work your problems out with Ad and keep it between the two of you because these women are SNAKES. Except Lisa.
nida614 Burr Exactly. It takes two people to hurt someone. The person to say it in the first place and the second one to go blab what was said. I too don't want to hear what someone has to say about me. If it were really important, they can say it to my face but since they are cowards, behind my back is meaningless to me and they probably are not in my circle of friends anyway. The only time I would want to know is if someone were going to "do" something that I needed to be made aware of.
I think what Brandi did was mean, and only wanted to get even with Adrienne for something she thinks she might of done. Why bring children into it? Brandi acts like she is so protective of her children but throw Adrienne children into the fight? Who does that? I think Brandi is just a mean girl and tries to throw mud at anyone that has more than her. She has no class she doesn't care what f word come out of her mouth, how much she drinks, and brags about the many men she's been with? Shame on her!
So when Russell threatened to sue Camille over wife beating - Adrienne was disturbed and commented Friends dont sue friends.
So accusations of wife beating is not serious but _______ is?
How about RHOBH just hire a proctologist or three?
I like brandi, but as usual the trouble makers kim and kylie start trouble. If Adrienne wants to be so private maybe she shouldn't be on the show. She brought up things about Brandi and I don't see Brandi threatening to sue, but I can understand why the maloofs are upset, the allegations about someone's children can ruin a reputation and ruin one's career.
so funny how he called her a bitch then got irate when she called Adrienne a bitch. Just like they both got up in her face then acted like she was threatening them! they are the most blatant hypocrites ever..full of contradictions and no self awareness whatsoever. That said, Brandi needs to take responsibility for what she says. People forget she's 40 yrs old. She cant just keep saying its honesty, thats no excuse for saying things that cross the line. So basically; The maloofs can sue Brandi.....and then Brandi and Lisa should sue the Maloofs in return for all their slander too! Alls fair.
Do you all really not know what was said? It's been rumored since way before Brandi said it, and all the housewives already knew it. I have never known a woman to keep something like this secret. It's very strange of Adrienne. Too bad Lisa didn't say "well that's a lawsuit" , during the reunion. What Adrienne said about Lisa was a malicious lie. What Brandi said was the truth, and isn't bad! These women are weird......
I think Brandi is the fire in this show and if Bravo cans her its a HUGE mistake. GO TEAM BRANDI< LISA AND YOLANDA.
Just afew things... 1. There is no excuse for back hair when there are NoNo's around... 2. Adrienne has been alone on her own planet for so long, she believes she is Queen of the world......she threatened "just watch".....as if she is at the Palms dealing with a crooked blackjack dealer.... 3. Was Lisa finally giving Ken a new day? Birthdays (his), Christmas, now Surgeries? I thought I heard Barry White at one point, when the nurse was asking him if he "felt that"? Straight out of a Ben Stiller movie... 4. Why was Taylor trying to make the drama about her? She was seen behind Brandi and Paul holding her head as if in a flashback, yet she did not move an inch, camera caught it all, her escort asks "are you ok"? When Paul was the one who was about to get his face rearranged, non-surgically, by Brandi's barehands, I think she wanted to smush his face like a gay bull mastif...... 5. Camille is still telling us Kelsey's shortcomings, and this week we find out that her new man can not only cook food I doubt she will eat, but his manhood is about 10 inches long, if I recall last season, her ex was measuring a 2 on the dictor scale...she said the new guy had 8 in. On her ex.....did someone say Ridiculous?
That was good. BUT Nobody mentioned that at the table after starting trouble... Someones cying..someones crying. she than started trouble again by getting everyones attention again by non-stop telling Taylor to breathe a # of times with a smerk on her face looking at Brandi. Trouble makers are Adrianne, Taylor, Kyle & Kim.
Brandi just needs to watch her mouth a bit with the cursing and thinking these women are all her friends. Don't open up to much to them, some are very quick to stab you in the back.
