Troupe Beverly Hills

Ep 5: Bravotv.com's Editor tries to make sense of the literal mud-slinging, arm wrestling, and do-si-do-ing in Ojai.

on Dec 3, 20120

Their Name is Mud
After all that fitness, the gals deserved to relax. So off to a soothing spa treatment they went. Kim has found her spiritual renaissance in clay. You can't get closer to God than letting the only thing between you and full nudity be clay, she remarks. Taylor remarks that this new sober Kim is just as wacky as the old one. Honey, I could have told you Richards was an individual all the way through years ago.

And then the rubdown begins. I say rubdown, without fear of over-stating anything because this was the most vaguely Sapphic thing we've put on the airwaves in some time. But before things could get actually sexual, the whole process devolved into a towel-throwing, water-spilling fight for the ages. For a second I thought someone had changed the channel and Porky's was on.

"but the rest of the gals were aghast about Brandi's language (despite Lisa mentioning that Brandi saying the "f-word" is basically the equivalent of her taking a breath)." So basically what you're saying is that bad manners aren't really bad if they come naturally?

Funny to me how Kyle had no problem saying to camille your a f..king liar at the dinner table in NY, but when Brandi says the f word it's totally inappropriate ...please, please get rid of Kyle ....I can't even watch her anymore and bring on some more of Lisa and Yolanda's friends.....Taylor and Kyle have to go.

Does it seem like Yolanda is aggressive in different ways than the other gals? She is obviously athletic, tall and strong...The cart race (ok Lisa started that one) the towel fight in the mud room?   Wonder if we'll see more of this.

Lisa and Brandi are always my favorite moments in any episode.  The rest of the women need to be replaced.

This episode I believe was sad.  Kim Richards trying to maintain her sobriety and her sister Kyle drinking alcohol in front of her; Kyle could be a little more supportive.  The discussion that Brandi was having with Kim -- was very personal -- and was interuppted by Adrienne. Why didn't Kyle follow her sister into the bathroom?  Taylor's book was different f rom Brandi's book.  Taylor released her book soon after her estranged husband, father of her daughter just killed himself -- it kind of looked to me like she was trying to profit from it -- I realize she has bills to pay -- but that's the way it looked to me.  I do think in general when these ladies get together -- they always seem to drink alot of alcohol which leads to their arguments and disagreements.  Yolanda is a breath of fresh air; and I love sober Kim Richards.

I love how Brandi was having a good conversation with Kim.  I think Kim is trying hard to keep peace and it shows that she is getting better with everything in her life.  I think she is going to be the one to watch this season.  Keep up the good work Kim.  Wishing you the best.

Sometimes I wonder if BRAVO reads these blogs.  Clearly, Taylor is a pot stirrer.  She tries to play up the victim role. Yet, she enoys causing a fray between the wives and acting holier than thou.  Kyle is so insecure because she cannot be happy for anyone else but herself.  Kim is stealing her thunder and becomig a fan favorite. That just doesn't sit well with Kyle. The problem is Kyle wants us to forget her tacky rude behavior and focus on others. 

This season is a yawn. Maybe Lisa and Brandi should get a spin off show.  Next season leave Kyle, Taylor, and Adrieene off the cast.

I loved the Brandi and Kim bonding. I think it really rubs Kyle the wrong way to see her sister getting close to Brandi, however I think it speaks volumes about their relationship. Kim gets more support from Yolanda and Brandi than she does her own sister.

BEST EPISODE I have seen in a long, long time! I really enjoyed watching the women let loose and have fun in Ojai. The laughter and silliness from the bedroom gymnastics scene was infectious - I couldn't stop smiling!

 

I did feel bad for Kim, who was surrounded by alcohol all weekend. But it was great that Yolanda was there to support her sobriety.

 

The "STFU" comment is between Brandi and Adrienne. The conversation about it at the dinner table went on way too long. If Adrienne had a problem with it, she should address it with Brandi and not turn to Kyle or Lisa to vent her frustrations.

Kyle is starting to get on my last nerve!  Who died and made her the queen of what should be said or not said or who should have what room.  Did she organize this trip, NO.  So, shut the

f %$% up!  No wonder Kim has a hard time relating to her.  Kyle thinks she is Mother Theresa and has the authority of tell the other women what to do.  She needs to mind her own business and quit acting like she's the queen of Beverly Hills, when her only claim to fame is being related to the Hilton's.

I like Lisa and Brandi.  They are the only reason I watch.

Seriously, has everyone forgotten Kyle's F bomb in NYC season 1???? Let's rehash, everyone sitting around the dinner table st some restaurant in NYC, Kyle bellows " You are a f'ing LIAR, Camille!!!" Let's be fair. While there were many shocked expressions on those faces, not one person reprimanded her out of control actions. Double standard. Lisa is right, the " ladies " have it out for Brandi.

This season hasn't been as fun as the seasons before. A trip to Ojai? Maybe for romantic couples. But not for a ladies get away. Yawn. Watching them play batmitton was a joke. The only one who was ready in the proper gear was Yolanda. Lisa playing in a white granny dress? No.No.No.

Lisa is funny when she says she tells Brandi "like a mother" AHEM NO! More like an older sister. Lisa is to young to be Brandi's mom. Why was it so shocking when Brandi told Adrienne to shut the F up. Ive heard worse.Look at the way Kyle and Kim treated Brandi for the very first time when she had a broken leg and had attended a fundraiser. Kyle so rudely pointed Brandi  out and said." her claim to fame is when he husband left her for Leann Rimes"  After saying that Kyle , Faye Resnick, and Taylor sat in a circle laughing like mean girls. Let us not forget the next encounter at lame game night. The sisters were on Brandi's team much to Kims chagrin so they  kept leaving her out of the questions, asking questions that only each other would know. Kyle and Kim never said they were sorry. They pushed Brandi so far she said some things maybe she shouldnt have said. But damn, the sisters were goading her. They were 100% mean girls

Funny, the loudest and most instigating among them, Kyle, was the one shushing everyone when she wasn't smashed and pounding on the floor. And she thinks she's so fun and Yo is judgemental! Look who is talking and yelling over others. She's hell bent on havin her say and gettin sloshed. She couldn't even have the wherewithal to recognize Brandi was supporting Kim, her sis! Pathetic woman. As for Taylor, smug is the word. All in all, a good time watching Lisa and Yo, Yo and Kim, Lisa and Brandi. I could leave the rest, thanks!

Yeah, Kyle is really getting on my last nerve with her condescending behavior.

How stupid of me to have gone all the way through graduate school when I could have been a lazy, trophy wife, gotten a divorce, and wrote book about it! GIVE ME A BREAK. Brandi "wrote" a book? I'm sure her ghostwriter must be having a field day finding synonyms for her expansive vocabulary of 4-letter words. I'm sure she's never read a book or magazine article that wasn't a part of her EX-husband's new life worth more than 150 one syllable, four-letter words.

Anyone who thinks Brandi stirs up trouble is not paying attention. Kyle Richards is the ultimate s*** stirrer.

Tonight's show was so much fun to watch. I was actually laughing out loud. It is usually so quiet in my room when I watch these particular housewives. It was nice to see women who should be happy show that they can be joyful. The next morning Yolanda played her snobby role perfectly. She enjoyed herself too. It is quite evident her and her husband love looking down their noses at people. So joy was had all around. On another note, great job Kim on leaving the party early and getting some rest. Great job ladies, I'm in. I will now program my DVR.

My favorite part of he Ojai trip was Brandy telling Adrienne to STFU. Adrienne was being so obnoxious, stirring the pot. She announced to the table at least 5 times that Kim was crying. Brandy commented that Adrienne was "calling her out"  which is a term Adrienne does not know so Brandy used another term which Adrienne understood. Had Adrienne minded her own business, none of this would have happened.

Ummmm...Seems to me Adrienne is causing the problems.. Brandi called it like it was, and Adrienne sat  there acting like she did nothing wrong, when in actuality she knew exactly what she was doing.

This was probably my least favorite episode out of all the shows.  The drunken cartwheels are not why I tune into this show, that would be NJ.  I'm very disapointed.

Kelly21....if you don't want to watch, please change the channel, no body is making you watch is your own doing so stop whinning. Kyle is not going anywhere, we love Kyle and your opinion is not important. You are one more of the haters.

 Brandi really reached out, it was touching to see.

Someone on another blog mentioned something about Kyle's behaviour being part of the desease of alcholism. It made sense to me.  maybe some animosity of being through it somany times?

Kelly21

@Marielena Excuse me!!! I think my opinion and everyone's opinion matters...it's called ratings to a network...your right if people stop watching they will replace Kyle ....I love this show...Lisa Brandi Nd Yolanda ....I can do without Adrienne and Taylor ...but Kyle has to go, and it looks like a lot of people share my OPINION!

 actually it was adrienne shooting her mouth off AGAIN when she had no business doing so. who appointed her leader of the group? she acts like they all should bow and scrape and when they don't she picks obsure points and dwelles on them.
