Hello Francophiles and ducks who have not be prey to Housewives. Welcome to the part deux of the gals' jaunt to Paris. Because fights are better at international landmarks, the women took the time to have a major bust-up at the Eiffel Tower. Making memories! Let's make sense of this hoopla, shall we?
The Yolanda Diaries
We open with, of course, Yolanda exercising along the scenic Seine with Brandi. God knows, it would be nice to go on vacation with such a fitness taskmaster. I'm sure if I was there with Yolanda she would have to pry the baguettes and crepes from my cold dead hands. Instead she managed to coax Brandi to couple those treats with a reason to wear adorable exercise clothes and bond over their shared history living in Paris as young, impressionable models. Don't you wish there was a RHOBH prequel in which we saw these two as teens in Paris. It would surely put The Carrie Diaries to shame.
In other parts Parisian, Mauricio puts Kyle on lockdown -- romantic, bridge, key lockdown. Could Mauricio be more romantic and handsome? Seriously. Again, I would have been using that lock to keep baguettes away from myself.
And on yet another cobblestone street, Ken, Lisa, and Kim were shopping for Giggy a fashionable beret (and surely a few things for themselves). Kim shared that she still felt a strain in her relationship with Kyle and Lisa explains that she feels the same way. Lisa suggest that perhaps the relaxed vibes of France could propel the sisters to have a conversation. I'm not sure that vacation is the perfect time to tell someone, "I feel my relationship with you is fully surface," but then again I've never had a Parisian stamp in my passport. Maybe Kim could send an Edible Arrangement of croissants instead of fruit to get her point across?
I think that Kim may have been pressured into going to Paris. Kim should have stayed at home so that she could be close to her sobriety counselor. Her health and mental state is what 's important, right now. Not a trip to Paris.
Kim and Kyle BOTH cry as a self-defense barrier. It's how they put their opposition off-guard and afraid to hurt their feelings. Neither one ever has a solid reason to cry when they start in. Kim in the van was so obvious that she needed to be in control so no questions would be asked. Kyle, again, threw Lisa under the bus rather than straighten out the mess. She was sitting right there and knew exactly what was said in the van.
Hi Bravo Editor, I really enjoy your spin on things. May I get straight to the point? I was so excited about the Group's trip to Paris. More filming of Paris would have been so much better. Those Richard Sisters can turn on the tears faster then my faucet responds with a quick turn! I am sick of Kyle wiping snot off her nose and tears off her sister's face with her fingers. Bravo for goodness sake if she can't afford a KLEENEX. Can't Staff put some on the sets for her? Or slip one in her hand before her take. She can crys if the wind blows.
Another thing the lovely scene between Kyle and her husband on the Lock Bridge. Kyle blew that with her " That's so cute." Bravo should have left that scene on the cutting room floor. I am concerned the Custom may be ruined for our future young Lovers. Please give Kyle and Kim scenes a rest. Give us more of the fun things next season. We watch Bravo to see how the wealthy Live. We love seeing their beautiful homes, clothes, Jewels and trips.
Thank you for listening, I do APPRECIATE most of what you do.
Hugs, Older/Wiser (Mary)
I used to adore and look forward to your show. Now it has, as we all feared it would, morphed into another typical housewives series full of contrived fighting and backstabbing. I saw the lost footage from the first season and remembered why I loved it so much. Why can't you just have more positive shows like you did at the beginning- loved it when Kyle and Lisa were friends and had family functions together. Sadly don't want to watch this show anyomre because you think that people only want to watch this negative drama. Really we have enough going on in the world and want some light hearted escape!
bravo can't help what some of these women have turned into. if kyle and kim would get fired like adriene i think we'd have a really fun fun show. something for bravo to think about.
I have been drinking to forget this whole wasted season. I don't even listen to the hateful comments anymore. I watch it for the purses, shoes, and great earrings.
Why didn't YO say that SHE was with Lisa all afternoon therefore Kim COULD NOT have been with Lisa?
I feel sorry for Kim. She is newly sober and everyone is waiting for her to screw up. I love Paris, but if I had to travel with that group I would need a lot of booze.
Happycats I don't think anyone is waiting for her to screw up. She seems to be doing that on her own and points the fingers at others. Alcohol is not an excuse for bad behavior. A reason maybe, but never an excuse
KimberlyF You right on the alcohol bit, but I think the trip was a bad idea for her. It is too much pressure. I hope Bravo made sure she could go to meetings in Paris. There are sober people who slip after 20 years.
bookish1503 brilliant! LOL--that won't work
Kyle's store is an Alene Too company
Kyle gets her name tile hung outside
didn't her friend Kris Jenner already exhaust that with the Kardashian "Dash" store?
as brilliant as her bff FayeRancid claiming herself as model & top designer to HER a-listers Paris & Nicky Hilton, Nick Lachey! LOL
brilliant indeed to attempt pulling that off with Yolanda on the series showing gazillion dollar projects to die for not to mention modeling history
that's why Kyle so "jelly"
zero competition except maybe the hair twirling
if i had all the money in the world i would not spend 1cent at a store kyle had anything to do with!! nor would i consider going to adrienes resturant. who's she trying to kid. hope the chairs are spray tan proof. the human stain - that still cracks me up!!!!
@bookish1503 I could see kyle doing that.also I heard Adrienne opened a restaurant a block or 2 from Lisa's Sur restaurant .
I love Lisa, Brandi and Yolanda, awesome women. Kyle has to stop crying for Pete's sake. Is she going through menopause or something, seriously, enough with the tears! Kim, we need to give her a break. Just think how hard it would be if you walked in her shoes. I wouldn't want everybody hovering over me, watching everything I did and probably feeling they just want to see me crash and burn. Not the case, but you can see she feels that way. It's just missplaced anger. It seems to me that Kim is upset with herself when she does stupid things, then denies them to heaven and then lashes out at whomever is there instead of realizing she is actually mad at herself. I hope it gets easier for her as time goes on.
I am so tired of Kim. Boring, I fast forward whenever she comes on can not watch the train wreck! Bravo should really dump her. Give me Brandi, Yolanda and Lisa as the cast. Kim has too many issues which are not appropriate for this show. She needs some of kind of help and not camera time. Kyle has issues also, her fame friend is too much. Anyway, I love the other women. Glad Adrianne is gone too, the phony---all hat and no cattle!
That was so wrong ... the way Kim attacked Lisa. I really felt bad for Lisa. Maybe Kim was still groggy from sleeping all afternoon. But, I wonder if unknowingly, there was some truth in what Lisa said. Why else would she react that way? I would be careful to avoid any interactions with Kim - you would never know when she's going to blow.
@gracielibra And with a 9 hour time difference, Idk what Kim was so up set about when Lisa asked if she took a sleeping pill. We know she's on meds, by her own admission, to help her struggles against addiction and its not totally uncommon for patients to be prescribed something like Xanax, for anxiety issues; it also doubles as a sleep aid since many addicts are used to boozing their way to bed. Granted for addicts they'll use something w/less addiction risks like Rozerem, which works differently, or tricyclide antidepressants, like Elivil, because that branch treats both the depression and helps w/sleep as well as nerve pain. Taking a damned unisom isn't questioning Kim's sobriety when there's a 9 hr difference and jet lag is a b!tch!
The Richards sisters are way too distracted with all their issues to see the forest from the trees. The Yolanda, Lisa, Brandi vibe is good. If the producers add Faye Resnick to the mix, I am done once and for all.
Mauricio's gift to Kim was beyond.
More enabling. Here, Kim, here's a bag that would pay your rent for two months because Lisa hurt you so bad yesterday.
loveinchains "take all the most hated housewives and put them in a bigbrother like house and see who comes out victorious at the end of 6 weeks."
no no no
that's not nice
that would be 6 weeks of cruelty for 6 fans
Excellent idea. It. is getting downright painful to watch Kim be her arrogant self-centered self. Kyle looks like the devil anymore and what is sooo sad is she doesn't think anyone is wise to her. How can people live a life without any self examination? I am sick of them.
loveinchains Lisa is NOT innocent, why would she talk about Kyle to Kim? That is her sister. She knows that there relationship is strained.
I for one am really sick of the constant crap from Kim and Kyle. They demand too much from people and give nothing in return. It was better when Kim never showed up for anything. Now she wants an apology for making everyone wait and wonder why she was late. She needs to get sober off camera and have her intimate family moments somewhere else.
I have really enjoyed both of the Paris episodes. I honestly haven't missed Adrienne at all ... and I can't stand Faye, so I hope to never see her again on the series - or even referenced. I've never been to Paris and it was nice to see some of the sights along with the ladies. I think that Bravo should send the ladies - or most of them - to select beautiful cities next season, so that viewers can enjoy some sight-seeing along with the drama. I am really enjoying Lisa, Brandi and Yolanda this season. I root for Kim to be - and stay - healthy but her sobriety struggle shouldn't be the focal point of the show. Sometimes it seems to be.
This episode taking place in Paris was almost perfect. Too bad the Richards sisters joined the trip. What a downer.
PLEASE let Kim Richards go. She is so uncomfortable to watch. She needs to get out of the spotlight and work on herself. There is nothing entertaining about this woman. PLEASE don't have her back for Season 4. I wish her all the best, but I don't want to watch her on TV anymore.
When it comes to Lisa and Kyle I think....
"Someone is jelly" and it is Kyle
There is the Karma we heard about awhile back
"Bravotv.com's Editor wishes Kim slept through the duck murder"
this viewer wishes Kim had slept the entire trip along with future episodes in her bed in L.A.
enough kimdowner drainage of emotions!
So what. Lisa still has her own show which is doing quite well. Lisa doesn't really need BH; the other ladies need her.
What I don't understand is the need for Kim and Kyle to always have a "family moment" whenever there are others around. Do these ladies not understand the time for this is PRIVATELY!! Every single time the ladies group for an event, Kim feels the need to get Kyle aside and speak to her, then the tears start and the family drama is brought out AGAIN...Do these women not have phones? Kim needs to go over to Kyle's house and they can discuss their sisterly issues in PRIVATE!!! This is one viewer that is sick of the Richard sisters tears and drama!!
I couldn't agree with you more. These sisters just need to go away for good and Bravo just find more housewives that are compatible to Lisa, Yolanda and Brandi. Thank god Bravo fired the Maloof Hoof and Camille is not coming back. By the way Bravo can keep Taylor...She is a lot better this season.
Lisa has always shown concern for Kim. I just dont think she is the most patient or tactful person to deal with emotional wrecks! she's a "pull your socks up" kinda woman. She should just leave Kim for Kyle to deal with...or Yolanda if she's looking for a pet project to make her look like mother earth. Im not buying Yolandas act; theres a very cold calculating woman under that cool exterior. She didnt marry extremely rich men by accident! and those bitchy digs often sneak out.
We saw too much of Ken an Mo this ep....this is houseWIVES not husbands!
You noticed that too?! She's always in somebody's business and I like her but she's a buttinsky and nosy. Nobody was talking to her so stay out of other people's conversations! She's irritating.
@SoOverIt @calvin.right I was also suspicious of Yolanda ulterior motive, since she has no storyline she is using Kim to build one and get viewers sympathy.
calvin.right I actually enjoyed seeing Mauricio and Ken on the Segway tour ... but true, more of the men means less of the women and this is supposed to be WIVES. :)
I enjoyed the part with them two. It was a nice distraction from the "girl drama".
Yo was correct in telling Lisa to knock it off about talking about the Kim situation to Mo at the dinner. Did the conversation need to take place-yes, probably. But not at the dinner and not with Kim at the table. The timing was all wrong.
