Bravo superfans, beware: Neil Patrick Harris is taking no prisoners on his new show Best Time Ever. On the Tuesday (October 6) episode, NPH punked loyal Bravo viewer Nicole by transporting her into the fictional world of the Real Housewives of Richmond — with a little help from her husband Scott, Andy Cohen, and a few Housewives veterans. Together, the group helped Nicole go from fan to star of her own Housewives spoof — what could be better? — where she unknowingly found herself at the center of the drama in a series of hidden camera adventures. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards were both in on the action in a pre-taped segment, gawking at Nicole's husband Scott who may or may not be Lisa's new "sexy bartender," as well as Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey, who catered to the Richmond queen during a recent spa day. And not only did the ladies borrow some very special items from the guest, they also put their hands on her. Check it out.
The real cherry on top, though, came from the Real Housewives of New York’s Bethenny Frankel, who feigned animosity with Nicole over the phone as only she can. (Although to Andy's point, Nicole did hold her own.)
Bethenny made a surprise appearance during the live broadcast, with Andy playing referee as the two hashed out their previous tense phone call. Fortunately, things ended on a sweet note. Nice work, pranksters! It just goes to show that watching countless hours of Housewives DOES pay off.
Looks like they all really did have the best time ever — smiles all around!
