Some Tweets from Last Night
Lisa: presumably talking about her difficult walking from her car into Brandi’s house on high high heels:
That hill is so steep…ready to go arse over tit…that os why
(Glad she put smiley face on that one.)
Then to Jay Mohr who was making fun of her botox face on WWHL: @BravoAndy Jay cant really talk about “surgery”!!!
Jay Mohr also mentioned that last time he was on the show he was sitting next to an “orange” lady ie. Peggy from Orange County.
Peggy’s husband Micah was NOT pleased and tweeted this: “
“REALLY? @jaymohr37 Who’s wife is an orange oompaloompa?”
And Peggy Tanous tweeted this:
Adrienne tweeted this photo while the show aired. There wasn’t a message.
Ratings Bloop Bloop. Atlanta one-upped New Jersey again, pulling in 3,200,000 viewers for their premiere and setting a new Season Premiere record. That’s over 200,000 more than New Jersey pulled in last April when Season 4 premiered.
RHOBH “Down and Left Out in Beverly Hills” by BB
Beverly Hills, Darling! Shi shi shi shi shi!
Lisa “Life isn’t all diamonds and roses, but it should be” Vanderpump’s new house is gorgeous! It’s very open and has tons of natural light. Her closet/dressing area and bathroom are to die for. Lisa loves it because it’s tranquil and has no neighbors (referring to Adrienne who used to live across the street from her). Brandi is the first of the women to see it. Lisa and Brandi have become close. Lisa admits she didn’t give Brandi a fair shot at first because of her association with Cedric. Per Lisa, Brandi wants to have sex with Ken, Ken wants to have sex with Lisa and Lisa doesn’t want to have sex with anyone. Lisa tells Brandi about her upcoming anniversary for Villa Blanca and the fact that she did not invite Adrienne (because of Adrienne’s accusation about Lisa selling stories to the tabloids). Lisa won’t trust Adrienne as a friend until she gets an apology.
Kyle “I’m born and raised in Beverly Hills; this is MY town” Richards’ hot husband Mauricio comes home and surprises her with a Maserati convertible that she’s been hinting about. Kyle has been driving the mommy cars for a long time and now it’s time to have fun. Must be nice.
Adrienne “Know your friends, show your enemies the door” Maloof is having dinner with her husband Paul and seems irritated with the way he orders his dinner. She answers her cell phone during their dinner conversation. It’s Taylor and Adrienne puts her on speaker. Taylor asks Adrienne if she wants to go shopping because she’s gained 10 pounds and she has nothing to wear to the Villa Blanca party. Adrienne is embarrassed to have not been invited to the party and can’t believe Lisa is holding a grudge about what happened between them.
Yolanda “I like to have fun, but I don’t play games” Foster is walking outside of her home with her cute dog and picking huge lemons from trees. She designed her house. She cuts fresh flowers and takes them and coffee down to her husband’s studio where he is working with a couple of others on music. Lisa knows Yolanda and her children through Yolanda’s ex-husband Mohammed Hadid. Yolanda has three children, Anwar (12), Annabelle (15) and Gigi (17). Beautiful kids. She refers to her current husband, David Forster, as a genius. She’d rather get love letters than jewelry from him.
Kim “Life is a journey and I’m still finding myself” Richards is visiting her sister Kathy Hilton with her youngest daughter Kimberly. Kim and Kathy are closer than Kim and Kyle are at the moment. They are there to pick out a prom dress for Kimberly. Kathy asks Kimberly if she’s ordered her date a boutonniere. Neither Kim nor Kimberly know what that is. Kathy thinks Kim is joking. She’s not. Kim says she’s got a boot and she can hear. Ha. Ha. Kyle shows up and they have an uncomfortable conversation about Kimberly and her prom date.
Brandi “Money doesn’t give you class, it just gives you money” Glanville’s house is not on the same scale as Lisa’s or Yolanda’s or even Kyle’s, but she sure has some cute shelter dogs names Chica and Sugar. Lisa is visiting Brandi who tells her she’s not looking forward to seeing Taylor at the Villa Blanca party. While there, Lisa receives a call from the adorable Portia inviting her to her fourth birthday party. Since Brandi is there, Kyle feels like she has to invite her and her boys too. Portia tells Lisa, “Bye dahling.” So cute. Brandi feels like Kyle was forced to invite her. Lisa tells Brandi to stop and start mending bridges with the others. Portia also invites Taylor “Kennedy’s Mom,” and tries to invite aunt Kim but her voice mail box is full. Portia thinks it’s so annoying.
Taylor “I fought too hard for this zip code to go home now” meets Adrienne to shop. Adrienne tells Taylor Paul is thinking about moving part of his practice to New York. Adrienne doesn’t like the idea because of the kids. Taylor tells Adrienne she would miss Paul. After a long pause, Adrienne reluctantly agrees. I’m not fond of that skirt Taylor tries on. Adrienne is not someone I would ask for advice about fashion. Taylor apologizes for mentioning Lisa’s Villa Blanca anniversary party to Adrienne. Adrienne tells her it’s mean-girlish and petty of Lisa and she is hurt about it.
It’s party time at Villa Blanca. Lisa is getting her staff ready for the party. The wait staff is all wearing angel wings. Yolanda arrives first, followed by Kim, (they are both drinking water so Yolanda tells Kim to hang with her.) Kyle and Mauricio arrive next, followed by Taylor. Taylor’s not looking forward to seeing Brandi, who arrives last.
Lisa introduces Yolanda to Brandi, who awkwardly says “You were married to Mohammed, you know everyone, you’ve slept with everyone, it’s all good.” Of course Lisa and Yolanda are taken aback, but realize Brandi is very nervous. Kyle warns Taylor and Kim that Brandi will be coming to Portia’s party. Kyle enjoys seeing “both” of Brandi’s faces (cheap shot). Kim says she might not be able to come to the party because her kids may not want to come and she’s not leaving her kids. Brandi gives Kim a quick kiss, then Kim leaves quickly to go talk to Yolanda. Kyle and Yolanda discover they share a birthday. Yolanda tells everyone what Brandi said to her, but gives her a pass.
Lisa gets a huge flower delivery from guess who – Adrienne Maloof with her best wishes. This was not just a big flower arrangement, but a whole florist shop. Taylor’s friend Dwight says it was a very calculated move and calls it a Thanksgiving day parade float. Taylor wonders if it’s a good will gesture or an attention getting gesture from Adrienne to make sure everyone knows she wasn’t invited? I don’t think it was a good will gesture from Adrienne.
Kim and Kyle have another awkward conversation about Kim coming to Portia’s party. I’m tired of this dynamic and they need to go to joint counseling to work it out already.
So far, I like Yolanda. Did not see either Marisa or Camille this episode and they don’t have taglines, so they must be just “friends of the housewives” this season.
Until next week.
Week 7 Dancing with the Stars All-Stars, Fusion Dances By COCFarm
This is your only DWTS blog this week. Due to the presidential election, there will be no elimination show tomorrow night. I’m not sure why this show had to be two hours. I guess to get in some special dances that were being prepared for tomorrow night before they realized there was an election that day. Scores from tonight carry over to next Monday where they will be combined and two stars will be eliminated next week Tuesday.
In the spirit of the political season, there were “political DWTS ads” during the show. There were some funny ones, like an ad against Olympic athletes who have already won too many awards, paid for by the committee for actors and actresses. Or toward the end of the show, Texans Melissa & Emmitt were singled out for being wimpy which was paid for by the committee to reelect Olympians, but both my husband and I broke out laughing because it sure sounded like they said Libyans.
There is a Swing dance marathon that lasts 4 minutes. I thought the dance was more interesting than other group dances where they are in teams. The individual point system puts more distance between the scores which helps mix up the judging some.
Kirstie was tapped out first and received 4 bonus points. Adding an additional point for each person, Gilles (5) was tapped out second followed by Apolo, Emmitt, Shawn, Kelly & Melissa who then had 10 extra points.
- Apolo & Karina: cha cha/paso doble: 27/30+6=33/40
- Emmitt & Cheryl: ramba/samba: 27.5/30+7=34.5/40
- Kirstie & Maks: quickstep/samba: 24/30+4=28/40
- Kelly & Val: samba/foxtrot: 27/30+9=36/40
- Melissa & Tony: tango/cha cha: 29/30+10=39/40
- Shawn & Derek: tango/paso doble: 30/30+8=38/40
- Gilles & Peta: tango/paso doble: 28.5/30+5=33.5/40
Melissa ends up at the top of the leader board this week with Shawn one point behind. 11 points below Melissa at the bottom of the leader is Kirstie with Apolo 5 points ahead of her as second from the bottom.
Two people go home next week Tuesday. I’d like to see one of those be Kirstie, but that’s not how this works. She’s entertaining but it’s time to go.
I hope all the east coasters are surviving as best they can. The show commented frequently on the need for money and help for the east coast with Maks and Tony being particularly effected with family in some of the hard hit areas.
Stay safe and we’ll see you next week for the double elimination.
Watch What Happens Live by BB
Kyle, Mauricio and Andy getting ready for WWHL.
They are back in the clubhouse. Kyle Richard is there in a very sparkly dress. Jay Mohr is there in jeans and a sweater. Drinking word is Vote. Bartenders are a slutty elephant and slutty donkey in honor of election day tomorrow.
Jay describes Adrienne’s flower arrangement as an underwater sea creature, but he’s more surprised that Adrienne and Paul are starting to look alike. They show clips of Portia and Andy says she might be the Milania of Beverly Hills. She’s a cutie pie alright. By the way, little Portia pulled a Rabble Rouser kid stunt and swallowed a small battery but passed it without incident.
Poll Question: Whose side are you on – Lisa or Adrienne?
Jay is a Vanderpump fan. Plus one point for Jay.
Parody video shown about Beverly Hills. It’s funny, but not Amy Phillips funny.
Andy shows a picture of Kyle in a show called “Down to Earth.” It was back in the ‘80’s. Andy wants to know what country that was in because he watched everything.
Andy asks Jay his impression of New Jersey cast. First Jay says the reunion should have been called “Teresa vs.” It was bananas and he had never heard Caroline Manzo yell before. OK, first Andy asks Jay what he thought about Melissa. Jay sings, “On Display, On Display” and says Melissa was Italian all season and all of a sudden she was Alicia Keyes at the reunion. When did she switch? Then Andy asks about Joe Guidice. Jay says “Joe Guidice can do the splits, moving on.” Next, Caroline Manzo. Jay says, “We are thick as thieves. Woman of her word. She’s a mamma bear.”
Next, Teresa, to which Jay yells “A prostitution whore.” Andy asks him how he felt about Teresa this season. Jay says he thought he was watching somebody unravel like in Baby Jane. Richie looks like Andrew Dice Clay if he went to college. He won’t comment about Milania because she’s a minor. Jay says Kim D wasn’t the only one involved in the set-up, everyone had a hand in it. He thinks Joey Gorga has a lot of love for his sister even though he was hard on him in the blogs. Minus a point for Jay. For Kathy Wakile Jay says “tripping balls.”
A caller asks about Kim’s ex-boyfriend and Kyle says they broke up, she’s glad about it, and Kim is single. Kyle has not had anything done to her face. Jay Mohr thinks Brandi cannot move her face she’s had so much botox. Minus another point for Jay.
Another caller asks Kyle what she would do if Brandi flirted with Mauricio like she does with Kim. Kyle wouldn’t find it funny. Jay says Ken is no competition for Mauricio. Ken looks like he’s a member of Air Supply. Minus another point for Jay.
If Christopher Walken were a housewife, Jay says his tagline would be “Don’t hate me because I’m rich and beautiful.” Plus one point for Jay.
Jay also does an Andy and Barefoot Contessa impression.
Jay calls Peggy Tanous that orange lady. Plus one point for Jay.
Game Time. Jay does impressions of housewives and Kyle has to guess who. They do a great job and both get Mazel hats. The only one Kyle missed is Teresa.
Poll Winner: Lisa 76% , Adrienne 24%
Kyle says “Lisa is loving this, rubbing her hands together.” Minus one point for Kyle.
