Forget about the standard rule of avoiding politics and religion, when it comes to ‘Housewives dinners, everything is on the table.
While all the Real Housewives franchises have had their share of ridiculous moments around the dining table, (prostitution whore, anyone?) none have compared in such consistent decline as RHOBH.
Season 1's "The Dinner Party from Hell" is a fan favorite. Memories of medium Allison DuBois shooting off “premonitions” and jabs while the smoke from her e-cigarette encircled her head like a wreath is an image that will not soon be forgotten. The epic showdown even warranted an extended editor’s cut episode.
But, while seasons past limited their dinnertime drama to a few instances, it seems every single time the ladies have gotten together for a meal this season it has erupted like a treacherous volcano. Here’s a timeline of this season’s most explosive meals:
Kim organizes a girls’ trip to Ojai where tension mounts when Brandi attempts an apology to Kim and Adrienne interrupts, eventually leading to Brandi screaming the F-bomb across the table.
While it may not constitute as a meltdown, Brandi’s loose lips during a tasting at SUR send a rift through the ladies that affects almost every gathering thereafter.
3. Oy, Faye!
What was supposed to be a fun christening of Kyle’s newly decorated dining room leads to Faye Resnick laying into Brandi so hard that tears begin to flow faster than the wine.
What could have made our list simply because of Camille’s fabulous strutting entrance, actually deteriorates when the husbands fall victim to Brandi and Adrienne’s feud.
In a twist no one saw coming, after the table quickly divides into their respective Brandi and Adrienne camps, Camille accuses Lisa of not owning SUR.
Consequently, these culinary catastrophes lead us to Lisa’s annual tea party and Kyle’s annual white party where Taylor’s lingering feelings from their respective Season 2 outcomes allow this year’s events to follow suit almost like a Greek tragedy.
Well, the 'Wives are in Paris now, and only time will tell if their European excursion allows them to leave their table manners stateside. Find out on the next Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Monday, March 4th, at 8 p.m.
