As Brandi and Lisa continue to discuss the party (and as Kim and Kyle talk prom promises of celibacy) we get a better handle on how things have been since last season. Basically everyone is still testy with each other. Brandi’s nervous to see Taylor and Kim. Kim’s still struggling to forgive Kyle. Brandi’s dogs don’t love Giggy. Will all be resolved at Villa Blanca?
Before that Kyle and Portia are trying to set the guest list for Portia’s birthday. Portia gives Lisa a ring and, surprise, Brandi’s there too. Lisa thinks this is a great chance to mend some bridges, which probably not a bad idea. Let’s build a whole bunch of bridges y’all.
And finally it’s time for the big event. Surrounded by angels and dry ice drinks, Lisa celebrates all things Villa Blanca. Kim arrives! She’s at a party on time! The ‘Wives all start to meet and mingle. Brandi immediately offends Yolanda with a joke about the narrow pool of lovers in the 90210. Then Kim slightly snubs Brandi in favor of Yolanda. Kim refuses to commit to Portia's party. Typical Bev Hills party -- lots of drama.
After the gals discuss their horoscopes and Brandi's sexual conquests, a gift arrives. An arrangement, neigh, a living thing. A large peace offering in the from of a sapling from Ms. Maloof. Is it an olive branch? Or was it meant to be a bit more cunning and cruel? We'll have to wait for the rest of the season to play out to see.
Well, what was your favorite moment RHOBH fans? Was it Kim telling us tales of love? Yolanda's lemon basket? Ken threatening us with a tequila gun? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
Please don't make me watch Adrienne pedal her crap this season. Anything that promotes Adrienne's businesses needs to be deleted this season.
Great blog...so many salient points...thanks for the recap! My favourite moment was watching Brandi throw herself at Lisa's husband Ken...it was ridiculous!
No fav moments for me, yet. Lisa's planning every event she can think of to control the show. We see her new house (it IS beautiful), she needs a party for her restaurant or just to PO Adriane. Then we see that Lisa/Ken will renew their VOWS later on!! Seriously??? It's great that she wants to renew her vows, but why does Bravo have to air it? (Question: would Lisa want to watch ME renew MY vows with my hubby?? LOL Yeah, I didn't think so!) Ramona of NY did the same thing. It was boring. She used it as an excuse to make the show all about HERSELF and her family... even her dog (hmmm... Ramo and Lisa are a tad bit alike!). Vickie of OC did it too.. Again, boring. There's always one woman who wants to hijack the show for extra airtime. It's boring and self-centered.
Kyle needs to stop hounding her sister. That would drive ME to drink the way she invites her to an event then stares intensely into her eyes waiting for an answer. I'm glad Kim finally said "I don't want to come". I'm not a Kim fan at all... but Kyle needs to stop talking about Kim's problems on air... and then expecting her to come to her events. Kyle needs therapy because she's crazymaking. She needs to understand that maybe Kim doesn't like parties right now... and that's OK!!! She's throwing a lot of guilt Kim's way and alcohol is linked with guilt and shame. Leave her alone. Let the woman breath and focus on her own life for now.
Not sure about the new woman... she thinks a lot of herself.
I think BH is the best Housewives franchise because so many of them are past actors. Makes a difference!
Hi Kyle, Please don't cry all season, because between you and Taylor, I can't stand it.....Try not to be so controlling and mean also.
Why are the Richards sisters Kim/ Kyle and Taylor Armstrong still on RHOBH. I was hoping Bravo would have eliminated these three mean girls by now. Really Bravo... how long can you expect viewers to be entertained by these less than intelligent boo hooing has beens.
Sorry! You don't speak for me regarding Kim. I will only watch the show after it's recorded, and then I FF through Kim and Taylor. Ish.
As I just read all the blogs that are out as of now.....Kyle is always late.....But Kim and Taylor have yet to blog for a very long time. I truly believe if the woman can not blog then they should not be paid. After all they signed their contracts now Bravo needs to make sure they honor the contract.
As far as Lisa and Adrienne's fiasco, hurt moments at one event do not damage a relationship. Let's not forget Adrienne's cook: Bernie who talked smack about Lisa and Adrienne nor Paul ever stopped that. Bringing Giggy to a formal dinner and drinking out of glasses @ someone elses' home was not classy. There were alot of tits for tats between these two ladies that has now avalached with alot of help from Brandi speaking out of her butt. Alot of hurt emotions can't be fixed without communication. Silence is deadly as we all know.
Now, Brandi.....the real pot stirrer.....How is it that she is a housewife? She's got no class nor dignity by the way she speaks and where is the elegence of Beverly Hills in her? She was brought in as Adrienne's friend and now she bad mouths her? Really? Yes, Brandi is an amusement to watch, but Brandi belongs on Jersey Shores or something, with her past and current surroundings, why does she belong in Beverly Hills? Maybe this season we will find out. Again, accussations from Brandi about Kim and illegal drugs was a huge mistake especially on camera. Kim is an alcoholic and she was over medicating on prescription drugs which is alot different than Brandi's illegal drug comment. Let's not forget that Brandi was married to Eddie, who helped her get recognized in Beverly Hills, and now she's acting like she's a real Beverly Hills Housewife? Really.......enough of her........
Now, Kyle.....love her as she is real. Her family life isn't perfect but they work through it. Love her husband as most housewives do around the world. Portica is a doll.....can't wait to watch her grow again this season.
Now, Kim.....she has to blog and let us know how she feels about the show. It's our right as viewers to get to know her for herself and not what people say. It took alot of guts to do reunion part 3 for Kim. She is having complete empty nest syndrome and in time it will pass as she sees her children become adults and have children of their own. Loving her children to death is not a bad thing. Kim going to Kathy's to help get Kimberly a prom dress was a great honor. Buying a prom dress is nice, but having an aunt open her closet means more to Kimberly than a store bought dress. I respect Kim and Kathy's relationship as they are close. Maybe Kyle will wake up and smell the roses. Time will tell.
Now, to Taylor......why is she back? Again, she won't blog either, she shouldn't be paid. All her legal problems and worrying about her daughter and she still wants to be apart of a show? Now, she has a boyfriend....and now she has money to shop? Where did Taylor get all this money all of a sudden, as last season she clearly was headed for bankruptcy. Enough already as Taylor would say.
Now to Camille.....love her....not her friends....LOL.......Camille who from what I understand will only be on certain times, and I get that after all her ex-hasbeen husband, Kelsey, has done nothing but constantly talk about her in negativity and yet Kelsey was the idiot. No man should talk about an ex with children. Like the children won't hear from their friends. Camille is a breath of fresh air. Her friends can stay off the show as they are more problem then Camille needs.
Now to Yolanda......interesting woman....can't wait to see what's ahead.
and finally Adrienne.....OMG....poor Adrienne....NOT......her personal life has taken a toll on her personality for which last season showed an Adrienne non of us knew. Adrienne can sit at home and do nothing but raise her children. She has chosen to get involved in other businesses which show her children not everything is just handed to you. As for Bernie.....keep your mouth shut as your job is to cook not comment. Bernie's comments have destroyed what used to be a good relationship. Heaven knows what Lisa said or didn't say a hired help such as Bernie has no reason to start stirring a pot that he can not possibly able to swim out of. Bernie shows no class nor respect for anyone including Adrienne as speaking out of turn and start bad mouthing others shows no class nor dignity and especially respect.
We will await this season with open arms. I truly believe Beverly Hills needs a major shake up like New York and Miami........Listen up Ladies as class, dignity and respect was why we loved you from season 1...............
Really Troupe Beverly Hills? Speak for yourself when stating that you "speak" for everyone and are so happy to see Kim! I don't speak for everyone but I'm sure a lot of people will agree with me in saying how disappointed I was that she was still on the show this season. All addictions aside, she has proven to be a mean, cruel person who takes no responsibility for her actions, instead always laying the blame on whomever is convenient. And don't even get me started on Taylor being asked back for another season. Ugghh! I thought this season would be more entertaining to watch but it's already turning into the Bad Girls Club with the likes of Taylor, Kim, Adrienne, and lets not forget Kyle but I do try to overlook Kyle a little because her daughter is so precious and think without all the other bullies she might be a little more likable.
Apologies are needed to stay in the group. Be truthful about that rumor, because Bernie could be the one spreading that rumor. NOW as far as KIM goesif she doesn't blog this season I think she need to go. It's not fair to the fans, shes just on the show to get paid!
@meredo50 hello taylor
@polishmomYeah, the Richard sisters do have a habit of being "mean girls". I don't care for Brandi but watching Kyle and Kim hiding her crutches and giggling about it was an all time low!
Brandi was very vulnerable being new to the group and on crutches. From the moment Taylor, Kim and Kyle met Brandi they openly stared at her, whispered and giggled about her, made snarky, mean remarks about her crutches and shoes... and then they hid her crutches.. Real Nice! (Brandi's reaction was just as ignorant, but she felt vulnerable and lashed out) What other party games do the Richards women know... hide the wheelchair on the paraplegic??!!
Seriously, I've had 4th graders who know better than that. Whenever a younger attractive (unattached) woman comes near their "territory" they feel threatened and turn into bullies! Lisa does it too and it's even more unbecoming for a woman of her age. She must be in her 60s.
I agree the housewives need to blog because thats what the fans look forward to after the show because thats how we hear about true feelings etc. Also Im sure thats what they get paid to do anyway.
