Real Housewives of Beverly Hills by NMD
Yolanda’s Lyme Disease makes her relationship with David Foster relatable. Good thing -because watching her is like nails on a chalkboard for me. David interviews that he’s messed up on his past relationships, and being there for Yolanda is a chance to do something right and show that he can be a good husband. Yolanda interviews that men in Beverly Hills are known for looking for young, pretty wives, and this adds a complication to her marriage that scares her. I think that it’s probably a difficult thing to deal with for any couple that has only been together a few years – especially when they live in a superficial fishbowl like Beverly Hills. If their relationship is based on her doing things for him, and she’s basically been ill for the last year, that would really change their relationship dynamic.
The bacteria introduced by a tick bite has traveled to Yolanda’s brain and has made her “fuzzy”. She’s reached the next step in her treatment and it’s time to get her port removed. (The port is used to administer drugs so that she doesn’t have to have daily injections.) Her operation goes well. Her daughter Gigi calls when she’s waking up. Gigi is riding her horse. She explains that she’s feeling weak and ate half an almond. Yolanda advises her to eat two almonds and chew them slowly. Wow. Just wow. Unless I missed something, I’m worried for young GiGi. Two almonds? Again – wow.
Question – why is Yo allowed to wear black nail polish and have surgery? I thought they needed to see your nails to make sure you were getting enough oxygen. The other thing I noticed was that she was awake during surgery – but when GiGi called she said she just woke up. Was this a reenactment?
We get to see a little more of the new housewife Carlton. We see her home, which is nice enough by housewife standards, but full of a stuff – like a castle or something annoying. We see Carlton and her husband David make their kids work out in the yard, then a scene where her kids are in the kitchen pretending to help with dinner prep. Rookie housewives always allow their kids to be filmed. Kids appear much less often in subsequent years. Carlton’s thing is her Pagan religion. Carlton has a potty mouth – but expects her kids not to cuss. Good luck with that.
Brandi is sitting on the floor of her empty home, going through boxes with her mom. She’s paid so much for rent she no longer can afford to dye her hair regularly, and her black roots are showing. It turns out she’s sending checks to her parents – even thought they don’t need the money. She lets us know that dad is mad at her over the Oscar dress fiasco (where her bubbies were hanging out in the ill-fitting dress she designed herself.). She lets us know that he’s changed. He used to run around naked, but now he’s more conservative.
Lisa heads off to Dancing with the Stars. She explains that it’s a legit way of making out with another man without cheating. Then she realizes Giggy heard her and has to apologize to the little guy. Taylor and her new boyfriend, Kim, Brandi, Kyle and Mo, along with Ken are there to support her. This was probably filmed before Taylor learned she was off the show, so Kyle voices over that Taylor spends most of her time in Colorado now (skiing with her beau) and they try to get together when she’s in town. Everyone teases Lisa and Ken about Lisa getting cozy with Gleb, her dance partner. Ken jokes back that he has Brandi – and picks her up and gets a little close with her.
Kyle has the two new ladies over to her home for lunch – Carlton and Joyce, along with another friend, Sharon. Carlton is in the middle of a boring story and Kyle makes an excuse and goes to look for something. Carlton is not amused. Then Joyce tells a long story about meeting her husband and Carlton’s face is all screwed up because the attention is not on her. Remember Cindy Lou Who? I think she’s back. Then Sharon kills a bee because Kyle and Joyce are allergic, and you would have thought they killed a puppy from Carlton’s reaction. Would she rather Kyle head to the emergency room? Then the last straw is when Sharon tells a story about Kyle out in public and her boobs are leaking. Kyle, Joyce and Sharon are cracking up, with Joyce snorting she’s laughing so hard. Carlton’s face registers repulsion – you’d have thought Sharon killed another bee. Oh boy. She’s going to be a downer.
On the other side of town (and probably at a totally different time) Lisa is having Yo and Brandi over for a lunch. Yo talks about her illness. Brandi flirts with Ken. Then they gossip about Kyle. Lisa also makes a dig at Brandi (saying she needs to do puzzles to work on her brain strength). There is an awkward silence and then they laugh. This is what Lisa does. I’m sure later in the season Brandi will throw it in her face. Then Lisa asks Yo about her relationship with Kyle. She jokes that Yo just needs to put her house on the market and they’ll become best buddies instantly. Ouch.
Goodness, Kim’s storyline is that her dog needs training. He’s a pitbull, and completely out of control. He gets a little aggressive with the trainer and the trainer goes nuts. I think he kicked the dog. I’d have fired him on the spot. Apparently the dog is too attached to Kim, and she’s let him get away with too much. That would be bad enough with other breeds, but with a pitbull it could be dangerous (the trainer explains). The trainer seems terrified of dogs. Kim voices over that she needed that dog to get through her transition from addiction to sobriety, but this is not a good situation for either of them.
Next up is the infomercial at SUR where Lisa and Ken are planning a new gay bar that she wants to name Pump. Another spin off? The site is a construction zone on a prime corner of West Hollywood. They were sued in August over this deal. Apparently someone else had an agreement with the property owner to open a bar on the spot, and was suing all of them for breach of contract. Ken says urinals with a very strange accent, and he says the word about five times.
And finally we have the Richards sisters in Kyle’s media room watching the episode of DWTS where Lisa faints. They both crack up because they think she fake fainted. Kim reenacts it. Kyle explains that Lisa was exhausted and wanted to get out of the show. If I remember correctly, they filmed the Bravo upfronts the week before in NY, so the ladies (Kyle at least) spent some time with Lisa. Maybe she did fake faint. Maybe she didn’t. It was a pretty funny scene with Kim reenacting the faint. Lisa really sucked on that show, and I wouldn’t blame her at all if she fake fainted. But she claims it was a real faint.

Miami Reunion and Beverly Hills Crossover
During a heated Real Housewife of Miami reunion, Adriana de Moura told a national audience that Brandi Glanville had confided (confided means keep it confidential dumbass) to her that Joanna Krupa was persona non grata in NY during the upfronts, because she had slept with Mohamed at the time that his marriage with Yolanda was rocky. Joanna denied that she was a slut / whore. Brandi – wearing half a dress and making both Andy and Mark Consuelas very uncomfortable on WWHL last night – confirmed that indeed she had said that to Adriana.
Jo and I have been only best friend for 10 years.Two years after out separation
After Andy read the tweets aloud on WWHL, Brandi said that it wasn’t what Mohamed told her. After she said that – Mohamed tweeted:
Joeanna,Had nothing to do with our split.Stop this rumors. Friends for 10 years.U got to stop.yolanda never ever found us sleeping together
That such a lie @BrandiGlanville. I don’t talk like that.. Never spoke of joanna to you.. Disgusting .pure lies
@Andy. That so not true. Its pure lie
Andy. @andy.That a lie. I never spoken to Brandy@BrandiGlanville in any way about joanna.Brandy is She is such a scum and a foul mouth.
@Andy I am so saddened by brands lies.Never had a minute alone with her to speak of a woman. Any woman. Never had a reason to speak of Jo
So Brandi is the liar – not Joanna. Why does that not surprise me.
