Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

“Guess Who’s Coming to the White Party” – S5E1

by Stars99

real-housewives-of-beverly-hills-season-5-meet-the-cast

It’s time to watch the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, darling… Shi Shi Shi Shi Shi! (As our own VV™ would say it!) Let’s make a deal… Anytime throughout this entire season that you feel like yelling “STFU” at the TV at someone – Just go ahead and take a drink! That will make this show much more palatable and entertaining! Lol… Heck, if I do it… Who KNOWS what will come out of my mouth…lol.

As I consider watching this season, I can’t help but compare it to one of my other favorite shows,  “Survivor.”  It just seems like it’s turned into one gigantic game to see who can, “Outwit… Outlast… Outplay.” I mean, seriously, at the end of last season, I would have much rather had dinner in a den of vipers than among these venomous housewife snakes. This season, it will be interesting to see if the alliances previously formed will remain intact or if they’ve voted someone off the island. These guys regularly lie, scheme, and throw each other under the bus just for sport while smiling thru plastic facades of over-Botoxed lips. But you can be sure there will be huge blindsides and from the previews, there will be a slap heard around the world when Brandi seems to actually physically slap Queen Lisa V. I’m confident Brandi will now experience what it’s REALLY like to be slapped with a with a big, fat, hairy lawsuit of her very own for assault and battery unlike the fake lawsuit from 2 seasons ago. Let the snarking begin!

This season’s opening credit taglines are as follows:

Lisa V“Throw me to the wolves… And I shall return leading the pack.” [I’m shocked to see you back this season – I guess free publicity for your restaurants and bars trump any personal dignity you may have once had.]

Yolanda“Character isn’t what you have… It’s who you are.” [We see YoYo riding horses this season… but really, hasn’t she ALWAYS ridden her high horse while looking pretentiously down at everyone else?]

Lisa R“You’ve heard a lot about me… But it’s only true when it comes from my lips.” [HUGE points for newbie Lisa for poking fun at her own lips… I have a feeling I’m gonna love her… and her husband… and her lips… Wait, did I mention loving her husband?]

Eileen “I’m not a bitch… But I played one on TV.” [Newbie Eileen also gets points for poking fun at herself and her bitchy TV role as Ashley Abbot on the “The Young and the Restless. The jury is out on this new housewife, though… We don’t see her in this entire episode.]

Kim “I’ve been rich and I’ve been famous… But happiness beats them both.” [Zen philosopher Kim was inexplicably asked back this season because she was oh, so involved throughout last season – But I guess she has to pay those plastic surgery bills somehow. Oh, maybe it’s for the bills resulting from her dog, Kingsley’s random bites. Someone may deserve to be put down for cruelty – and it’s certainly not Kinglsey.]

Brandi“I’d rather spend my life kicking ass… Than kissing it.” [Brandi pretends she’s such a badass… But REAL badasses don’t throw a childish tantrum and whine and cry the minute their friends get busy and don’t have time to call… Boo freakin’ hoooo…]

Kyle“Planes and yachts are nice… But my happiness starts at home.” [Since I’m convinced Kyle’s number one reason to be on this show is to pimp her husband’s real estate business – it only makes sense for her to include a subliminal ‘home’ reference in her tagline. I wonder if Mauricio’s happiness starts at home… Rumors abound…]

It’s time for Kyle’s annual “White Party” where everyone who attends wears white and everything about the party is white. Personally, I think it’s color discrimination myself… but whatever… Kyle bellyaches that her budget has quadrupled for this party because each year she keeps trying to outdo herself.  I’m sorry, but I just can’t conjure up any compassion for her or her budget for an event in which she has full and complete control. Psssssst Kyle… Here’s a novel idea… How about not inviting so many people… duh!

As the event planner outlines what goodies he has in store for the evening’s festivities, surprisingly Kyle puts her foot down about having a snake charmer… Arguably, it’s probably because she’s already invited too many snakes to the party. Kyle, aka “Captain Delusional” actually refers to her white party as, “’Beverly Hills’ ‘Event of the Year party’ that everyone wants to come to.” Ack.. gag…ugh… Later, she refers to her party as, “One of THE parties of the year in LA that everybody’s trying to get on the list to.” Wow… just wow. I have no doubt it’s a really fun party… but really… Come the heck on…

Oh wow, now it’s Brandi’s turn to bellyache to YoYo about her finances. Brandi purports to have spent $40,000 in 2 months just to move, to store her stuff, and to move again. Keep in mind Brandi doesn’t own much… I don’t know who is helping her move or store her stuff but she is getting fleeced!  One would think Brandi would have learned that she shouldn’t screw with her landlords, right? She keeps having landlord issue after landlord issue. Hey Brandi… What’s the common denominator here? It probably doesn’t help when the landlord can see footage of you blatantly allowing your dogs to openly pee all over their nice, new, wooden floors. On a positive note, those of you who love Brandi’s books, you’ll be happy to know that she has a 3rd book deal… Color me surprised that Brandi has even actually read 3 books.

Oh goodie, Lisa and Kyle have a “Friendship Summit” to repair their wounds from last season. Each of them feels that they were wronged by the other… and each of them feels the other is wrong. Kyle reached out to Lisa for this Bravo-sponsored summit. Kyle admits to missing Lisa but Lisa can’t seem to admit that she missed Kyle. They kiss and makeup because there is filming to do and a white party to attend.

We are then introduced to Lisa Rinna and her lips. But WAY more importantly we’re also introduced to her husband, Harry Hamlin, who is currently wrapping up his acting stint on the series, “Mad Men.” And, as if the women of the world weren’t already swooning enough over the handsome and exceedingly yummy Harry, the scene with him at home features him wearing casual blue jeans and a black t-shirt while playing a guitar. Yes, he was playing a freakin’ guitar! Oh, and if THAT wasn’t enough, he seems to know more about putting flowers into a vase than Lisa. Excuse me while I wipe the drool from my mouth… lol.

So then we get to see Brandi in her temporary condo with her hair extensions laying out all over the dining room table (Yikes… it just creeps me out for some reason). She explains that it doesn’t matter where you live as long as love is there. While I agree with that in theory… it’s just hard to take it seriously because it’s coming from Brandi. I may just have to admit I have a bias against her at this point.. lol.

In this week’s installment of, “I Kid You Not” Brandi is talking about how it’s okay she and her kids are temporarily living in a small place because… (wait for it… wait for it…)… Her kids sleep with her anyway. Her sons are 11 and 7-years old. What the HECK are they doing STILL sleeping in her bed at that age???? That’s just wonky to me. I’m sorry… but it is. Wonky. She explained in a previous season that they have their own bedrooms, but that they prefer to sleep with her. And it’s not just once in a while… but they ALWAYS sleep with her. That’s just messed up. I know you guys might disagree with me, but c’mon. Ugh, this stuff drives me crazy.

Camille

 

So now it’s the night of the white party. Everything looks fabulous. There are fire-eaters/dancers but no snake charmers. Speaking of snakes, Camille Grammar, Taylor Armstrong, and Adrienne Maloof all show up and it feels like it’s the end of the season reunion party. To me, they all look stunning. But poor widdle Brandi feels like she’s on the outs with everyone because well, she IS on the outs with everyone. Brandi’s blatant, boundaryless, shock-value comments that she has made in the past about everyone have finally caught up with her. Most of the women don’t want anything to do with her and so Brandi runs away and hides in the bathroom with her boy toys. Brandi has made her bed and now she has to lie in it. I know it sucks to feel shunned… but really, how can she expect much better treatment when she’s done so much to so many?

Adrienne Taylor Kyle

 

Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin show up but they explain they can only stay for a short while because Harry has a wrap party with “Mad Men.” I believe they work this into every single conversation they have during the course of the evening. Kyle passes out drool cloths to all of the women once Harry arrives (Well, not really, but she should have…lol). Kim Richards finally shows up late and all is well in the world.

Lisa and harry

 

Quotable Quotes (From this episode and from previews for the rest of the season):

Brandi calls Kim “nutball crazy” and isn’t THAT the walnut calling the pecan black…

“Where’s Kim” Everyone said it at some time during the episode. Kim was late again to her own sister’s party. However, I find it to be strangely comforting to know that some things never change…

“It is a trip and a half raising teenaged daughters. Sometimes I feel like I’m on an acid trip – Although I’ve never taken acid. I imagine this is what an acid trip would feel like.” Lisa Rinna

“I don’t have any anger towards Brandi – I kind of feel sorry for her because I know I’m a f***ing good friend and I’m there when you need me.” Lisa Vanderpump

“Everyone is enabling an addict.” Lisa Rinna

“She sleeps around and tries to steal men.” Brandi says of newbie Eileen. Nice to know Brandi is making friends everywhere she goes…lol.

“I will do anything to make a buck. I don’t say, “No” very much – I say, “Yes.” Lisa Rinna… This may just explain why she’s so danged popular…lol.

“Don’t you ever take responsibility for any of your actions?” Kyle happened to be saying this to her sister Kim at the time – but she has also said it to Lisa in a previous season… and it really could be said of almost everyone on this cast…

That’s it for this episode… This season promises to bring plenty of drama and wine throwing…lol.  From the previews we know that: Glasses are tossed… Friendships are lost… And a slap that will cost… Join us every week as we snark together at these gooberheads…. Thanks for reading!  Happy Trails!

Vanderpump Rules

“Grand Opening and Closure” – by HydrangeaHussy

Last week Lisa finally suspended Kristen and Tom, and fired James!  I’m sure, since James is Kristen’s new BF, we’ll still have to see him.  Tom respects his punishment and thinks that he deserved it.  James thinks that it’s BS that he got fired because Tom started the fight.  Kristen advises him to have a private conversation with Lisa after the opening.

Stassi’s dad is in LA and they met for drinks.  He’s going to come see her apartment and she complains about how hard moving is.  She is happy to be back in LA, where it’s a little more laid back.  She doesn’t feel like she needs to always be “doing something.”  She felt more centered in NY because she didn’t have to deal with Scheana.  Her dad asks why she has to deal with Scheana when she isn’t working at Sur anymore.  Good question.  Stassi says that Scheana is constantly talking badly about her on Twitter.  Stassi is no talking to Jax anymore and her dad is really happy about it.  Speaking of Jax, he’s still seeing a therapist.  He explains the situation with the two girls.  He must not have seen this therapist since filming season 2 if she hasn’t heard about this yet.  She asks what happens to him when he behaves like this – she thinks he might be having out of body experiences or something.  She tells him that he’s co-dependent and maybe that’s why he keeps getting girls’ names tattooed on him.  Jax just says whatever he thinks people want to hear.  I don’t think he means any of it.

Kristen and James are having a date.  Ugh, didn’t he get fired?  Why is he still on my TV?  Kristen thinks that James got fired because Lisa has it out for her.  I’m sure it had nothing to do with his obnoxious behavior.  James is freaking out because he bought a BMW and now can’t pay for it.  Kristen is still helping Tom pay bills.  She doesn’t understand why she is still getting his bills and why he can’t take care of things.  James says that she needs to just cut him out of her life completely.  I agree.

1

Tom and Other Tom are walking on treadmills and talking about how happy they are that James got fired.  He doesn’t feel bad for calling Kristen out for drinking at work.  Tom is trying to use his time off wisely and get Kristen out of his life.  Other Tom is really happy that Tom is so happy with Adriana.  He thinks that Kristen and Tom could have drug their breakup out for years, but is glad that it’s over now.

2

 

This week is the grand opening of Pump.  Lisa is ecstatic to be finally opening the doors.  She says that it has been the most difficult opening.  She looks gorgeous in her purple gown.  I want her body when I’m her age.  Stassi is going to the opening, but stops by Sur first.  As much as she talks trash about everyone there and Lisa, why is she sitting at the bar?  If you want to avoid people, don’t go to where they work!  Katie and Kristina tell Stassi about the meeting.  They wonder why Kristen didn’t get fired.  Me too!  James walks into Sur.  Katie and Peter wonder why he’s there.  Way to cause a scene on Lisa’s big night at Pump.  Peter walks over to Pump to ask Ken why James is at Sur, working.  Ken tells Peter that James is fired and shouldn’t be there.  Ken says to make him leave, and Peter goes to handle it.  I guess, with the revolving staff, you have to make sure that someone is really fired.

3

 

Pump looks amazing!  Other Tom is bartending and Scheana is helping in the kitchen.  She immediately orders a drink from the bar.  Wasn’t she there when Kristen got suspended for that?  Lots of the housewives are there.  I wonder if this got filmed for that show.  Lisa is exhausted from keeping track of all of the staff, drinks, food, etc at the opening.  Stassi arrives and greets the former Sur staff.  She’s wants to be supportive of Lisa, even if they don’t always agree.  She runs into Scheana, who says that they haven’t spoken in awhile.  Uh oh, is Stassi going to cause a scene?  Stassi tells Scheana that they haven’t spoken because Scheana always plays the victim.  Scheana says that she asked Stassi to be in her wedding and Stassi just made fun of her.  Stassi says that Scheana can’t pretend to be a friend, then go on Twitter and say nasty things.  Scheana re-tweeted mean things because Stassi stopped being her friend.  Scheana walks away from the argument.  Good girl!

4

 

Back at Sur, things are very slow.  Kristina tells Jax that Stassi came by.  He’s shocked that she didn’t say hi to her.  He just wants to make sure that she’s ok.  Kristina tells she doesn’t blame Stassi for avoiding him.  Jax doesn’t understand why Stassi is still upset with him.  Sure, he slept with her best friend, but it’s not the end of the world.  Jax seems to think that, because he used to be close to Stassi and her family, he still is.  Kristina tells him that Stassi and her family are fine, and that Stassi has completely moved on.  He still doesn’t get it.  I really hope this is acting and he isn’t really this stupid.

Peter calls James outside.  He tells James that Lisa fired him and asks why he’s still there.  James says that he cares about his job, so he came in to work.  Peter tells him to leave right now.  James goes to clock out, saying that he got fired.  Yeah, you got fired yesterday and shouldn’t be there at all.  He confronts Peter again, telling him that Peter only has a problem with him because he’s dating Kristen.  James works his butt off and Peter is giving him a hard time.  That’s not really what happened – Lisa (the boss) fired you and you came into work anyway!  Why would you do that!?!  Do you really think that arguing with Peter is going to help?  James tells Peter that everyone else steals drinks on the job but he never did.  That isn’t what he got fired for, though.  He got fired for the drama and the fight, which Peter points out.  James finally gets in his BMW and leaves.

Stassi orders a Pumptini from Other Tom, who doesn’t know how to make it.  He’s out of his element because he isn’t used to working.  He doesn’t know if he’s cut out for working.  What a spoiled brat.  They talk about Scheana and the tweeting.  They need to stay away from each other, but won’t.  Overall, the night at Pump goes well.  Lisa and Ken are happy to be open, and to be embraced by the community.

There’s a scene of Kristen “working out” with her “trainer.”  They take shots of whiskey first and talk trash about Sur.  Ariana and Tom go to the batting cage.  I don’t think he hit a single ball.  Kristen is going to come by and take care of the bills.  Tom says that they already took over the cable bill, which is now attached to his account but in her name.  Ariana thinks that was stupid.  I don’t know why Kristen seems to torture Tom so much – she cheated too!  Stassi has a new apartment.  I wonder how she’s affording all of this when she isn’t actually working.  Oh, her boyfriend is paying for it.  At this point, I’m just waiting for this episode to be over.

5

 

Lisa checks in with Peter at Sur.  It’s taking time to get the hang of things at Pump.  James arrives to talk to Lisa.  She isn’t happy about being ambushed at work.  James doesn’t want Peter to sit in on their conversation.  He’s written a letter to Lisa and doesn’t want Peter to read it.  She agrees to give him two minutes.  James seems to think he’s better than Tom because he wrote a letter and is British.  I don’t think that’s going to get him very far with Lisa.  Lisa begins by telling him that he only got the job as a favor to his mother.  He isn’t actually a family friend, even though he tells people that.  Lisa has met his mother once.  She tells him that his behavior has been progressively worse and that she’s had enough.  James reads his apology letter, which is completely at odds with what he’s been saying behind Lisa’s back.  He wants to be back for a trial period.  Lisa says that he doesn’t seem as arrogant as he usually is.  She tells him that he could get a job anywhere.  But James has relationships at Sur.  Not the right thing to say since Lisa thinks his relationship with Kristen is part of his problem.  Lisa says that the letter means that he took time to think about his actions.  She agrees consider re-hiring him.

6

 

Kristen arrives at Tom’s, but doesn’t want to talk in front of Ariana.  She is over Tom, but still needs closure.  He gives her all of the insurance information.  She wants to return the equipment and have Tom get his own.  He has things DVR’d, but agrees to give up the box.  Kristen says that it is a nightmare to see Ariana taking her place with Tom.  I don’t think she’s over Tom.  Tom actually seems to have moved on, but Kristen can’t let go.  She keeps playing the victim, asking Tom to stop being hateful.  She won’t take responsibility for the fact that she starts the drama.   Kristen takes her stuff and leaves.

  1. Veena (NMD) says:

    Chi – she’s talking to you!!!!

  2. TexasTart says:

    Stars! So glad to see you’re recapping BH! I look forward to reading it and HydrangeaHussy’s VPR recap. Thank you both! 😀

  3. TexasTart says:

    Apparently Lisa R and Kyle are better friends than I thought! No wine was thrown or glasses broken
    #boobgrab

  4. OMG!!! I LOVED IT!!! Love love love SHI SHI SHI! And love that we have another drinking game. WOOT WOOT!

  5. Great blog Stars. To all the Lynnfamers last night, I had a lot of fun being snarky with you guys and it is really nice to be back with the “family”.

  6. A few side notes…Stars I gotta agree with you! I think it is creepy for Brandi to be sleeping with her boys at this stage. She is a NEEDY person and isn’t doing it cause they need it…I am sure she guilts them into it and it just isn’t right at this stage in the game. I highly doubt they sleep in their father’s bed with LeeAnn. And no, unlike Lisa, I did not feel even the tiniest bit sorry for Brandi. We seem to start out every season where everyone is still pissed at what Brandi did the previous season/reunion and she goes around making amends only to lash back out when she feels wronged. She is one crazy BEOTCH! I like Lisa Rinna and remember when she was Billie on Days of our Lives. I have not seen Harry in much, but I am a HUGE Mad Men fan and have enjoyed him on that show.
    Ken seems super bitter this year…normally, he seems pretty light hearted and friendly but seems as though he has been burned enough and doesn’t want to get burned again.
    When the White Party first started showing up on HW wasn’t it for a charity? Does anyone recall?
    Namaste…beotches!

    • TexasTart says:

      Still giggling at your name! Did you watch Days?! I did for at least 25 years.

      I’m glad Stars mentioned that, I meant to – that is all messed up Brandi’s boys sleeping in her bed – for one thing, they need to learn to be independent! The White Party started out as being for Maury’s birthday IIRC. Have a great day, Namaste!

      • mrs peabody says:

        I hope she wears pj’s while they are sleeping with them. I’m sure her older son really wants the world to know he still sleeps with his mom. I had 2 boys who were 3 years apart and no way were they sleeping with me at that age. That older one is getting ready for jr high. I see those kids being with their dad full time at some point. Why in the world with her income is she still renting and moving every year. She should have those kids in a stable home and there is no excuse for not doing it. Surely she can afford something down there, she doesn’t need a fancy mansion, all she needs is a little 3 bedroom home. Not sure how much they go for but surely there is something she can afford.

    • Austin says:

      As the mother of three sons, I definitely think that’s bizarre at the ages her boys are, particularly the older one. She’s using her kids to deal with her own insecurities, I think.

    • Powell says:

      Namaste how’d you like “I’m too scared to go up to Lisa with Adrienne there too”. WHAT?!?! She cursed them both out, called them all kinds of names and now she’s nervous to talk to them while they are together? Bit*h Puleeze!!!

    • Powell says:

      Harry did LA Law. Did you watch that?

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      My girls haven’t slept in the same bed as us for years and they are 7 and 5, although on the odd occasion, if they are sick or wake up from a bad dream where they are crying they are allowed to sleep in bed with us.

      And given who Brandi is, I can only hope that when the boys come home after being with their dad and LeAnn that, if they are sleeping in Brandi’s bed with her…she changed the sheets first.

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Yeah, Namaste… The sleeping arrangements are just wonky to me… I think this will be a wild season… It will be interesting to watch, no?

  7. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    As soon as Kyle made that comment last night about everyone wanting to come to her party I knew she was going to get heat for it…meanwhile I say the same thing about my Friday Happy Hour party-it went from 3 people to about 40 in 2 weeks…me and Kyle are besties but don’t tell Lisa Rinna!!!

    • Veena (NMD) says:

      But still no Kathy Hilton!

      I love that sort of thing when their own words jump up and make them look entitled – Camille Grammer Season One. Harmless and entertaining.

    • mrs peabody says:

      I hope she does realize that LA I huge and there are all kinds of fabulous parties held down there and just how stupid she sounds thinking hers is the one everyone wants to go to. Maybe in her neighborhood but not in the LA area.

    • plainviewsue says:

      Brandi made a nasty comment about it in her blog. I was hoping to see famous people at her White party. I guess it’s fabulous for the C Listers???

    • Powell says:

      Hahaha. “Everyone wants to come to the white party”. She said it twice. It’s not the Vanity Fair Oscar Party. It’s people eating in&out burgers. I’d put an eye roll here if I knew how to do it. 🙂

      • TexasTart says:

        I want to got to the White party, so include me with “everyone! I suspect people Kyle encounters in her everyday life have actually tried to get an invite to the party and/or friends ask if they can bring a friend and it grows from there. Since it is after all shown on TV, I bet there are people wanting to go for that reason alone. Of course, they hardly show many guests.

        I think when they feature a party, that should be the entire episode!

        For eye roll, type this without any spaces : r o l l :
        and you will get this 🙄

      • Rebecca wishes dragons would appear and roast every Housewife who says or does something stupid. says:

        Powell, you watch your mouth. It’s FATBURGERS!!!!

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Well, Jill… Glad that I didn’t disappoint in bringing the heat on Kyle…lol… But the difference between you and Kyle is that everyone SHOULD want to come to YOUR party! I actually do love Kyle’s White Party… I’m sure people have way too much fun for words… but you gotta admit it’s a bit of a leap to self-dubbing it the event of the year, no? However, since she said it twice, I’m SURE she didn’t think they were going to use both sound bites…. I’m sure she thought they would use one or the other – and maybe she said it twice because she was asked to for production purposes… Who knows?

      • Powell says:

        I’d love to go to a JNNTJ fam party. They P A R T Y. 🙂

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I swear I wanted to reach through the TV and cover her mouth!!

        • TexasTart says:

          Me too! I talked about this somewhere else here, about this probably is a big deal, a party of the year for KYLE’S Circle and I don’t mean her imagination, but in her circle of friends, acquaintances and where she treks in life lots of peeps want in on getting in the door so they can be on must see TV, lol. Not all of LA for heaven’s sake! I’m sure it is one of the parties of the year to attend in her circle.

          All the same if I were in your territory, Jill, I’d be trying to work my way into your happy hour!

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            We would welcome you with opened arms Tartsy!!! It is THE place for happy hour!! Haha!

          • Austin says:

            Exactly. People are a little too literal at times. She didn’t actually mean that all of LA wanted to come.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Oh and Starzy-she didn’t much heat from you-but twitter is burning up with it!!!

  8. Veena (NMD) says:

    Oh WWHL last night, I laughed out loud when Andy re-enacted his reunion READ to Adrienne, and she tried to frown and look stern, but her face couldn’t move.

    • Powell says:

      Too funny. Adrienne was a really good sport. I think she’s really in a better place. She said she and Paul were having issues when BH started. I’m glad they are in a Better place. Camille and Kelsey is another story. He’s an idiot. She’s past it but I think his wife is insecure and controlling that particular situation.

    • Hi Veena, didn’t Adrienne’s face looked more stretched out? Maybe it’s just me. I did find her to be a good sport even with the Brandi and her boyfriend questions.

      • Veena (NMD) says:

        Her face looked very odd on WWHL. Especially the eyes.

        Have you read the Hunger Games. You know how the people in the city have no idea how strange they look and act ….

  9. plainviewsue says:

    Fabulous RHOBH recap!!! I absolutely loved the first episode and even more, I LOVED WWHL. Adrienne’s face is a nightmare. Camille looked stunning. Taylor looked happy, and I loved her digs at Brandi.

    Stars, you hit it on the nail. How can Brandi believe any of these women would open her w/open arms? Not just cos of last season, but for her tweets, interviews, etc. since. She slammed Maurice’s agency for one of her many rental debacles. And she needs to know her poor me attitude is no longer tolerated!!

    I still have to wonder why Yo deals with her after saying what she did about Mohammed, the father of her children.

    Love Lisa R. So happy RHOBH is back!!!

    • Powell says:

      I loved the “nice things about Brandi game”. Really Andy? These 3 are going to say something nice? Taylor said, long legs, nice feet. LOL. 😂

    • Powell says:

      And Sue I was so waiting for Adrienne to laugh in Brandi’s face when Brandi was so called apologizing. 🙂 IDK how Adrienne kept a straight face.
      I didn’t like and don’t like when Adrienne said on wwhl “Brandi speaks without thinking” as a sort of excuse. Lisa does/did that all the time. Yo did too.

    • mrs peabody says:

      I for one don’t know why Brandi thinks she would ever fit in with these women and why she would think that when they all get together that they would really include her. The only reason she was at that party was because of this show, does anyone really think she would be attending any functions in real life these people attend. I think Brandi is trash all dressed up but still what I consider to be a trashy person. Even though I don’t have really good opinions of some of these other women they are levels higher than Brandi will ever be or can ever hope to be. I know that sounds snobby but it’s true.

      Thanks, Sue… I didn’t watch WWHL… So I guess I should, huh? This will be a fun season… Let the snarking begin! lol

  10. Thanks Stars and Hydrangea Hussy for the blogs, great work!!! HH thank you so that I don’t have to watch the show, lol! Did you all see where Andy held up the pix of Kristen and the idiot that is marrying Charles Manson?? They are twins!!! Brandi is suffering the natural consequences of her actions, no one wants to be around her. #booyouwhore I love how YoYo in her TH talks about Lisa and how over it she is, really?? then why you talking about it, or they asked you, really??? These bitches, I LOVE THEM!!!! I am going to enjoy this season so much because they all are so funny without trying. Also, the dynamic with Lisa and Kyle is so funny, Kyle believes everything Lisa says to the point of trying to look up her dress when it is obvious she is trolling her……too funny.

    • Powell says:

      Yes Yo said I was sick and I just wanted you to visit me, I understand you were very busy. But then in her TH, “I’ve moved pass it.” Really? That was SO stupid last season. If at the time you’re sick and missing your friend wouldn’t you call them and say “hey i miss you and would love for you to visit”? Lisa would have visited her no ifs, ands or buts.

      • mrs peabody says:

        It seemed to me Brandy and Yoyo started exactly where they ended last season and that no time has passed for them. They’re still complaining about the same stuff. I think both Yoyo and Brandi are very insecure people in their own ways.

      • People need to say what they need! “I am not a mind reader!!” <=== that is IPPHO, like the Spice Girls say, "Tell me what you want, what you really, really want.." All this "shouldy" thinking drives me nuts. Oh, I know, instead I will go on international television and bitch, complain, and whine about it, but really, I'm over it.

        • Austin says:

          My biggest pet peeve in life. For instance, some people expect you to show up at the hospital if they’re admitted, some people would die if you came (my BFF is like this – she doesn’t even want her own husband there). If you would like me to visit, I am happy to do so. Just say or text, “I’m in room 432” or something if you don’t want to ask straight up (although I’d prefer if you asked) and I’ll get it.

          • Yep, I don’t like to try and figure it out. I am more than willing to bend over backwards for you, if you ask me to. But I am not going to play the “no it’s okay” game with you. I much prefer aggressive to passive aggressive, at least I know where I stand and what they want.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              My worst is when you ask someone if they can do something for you and they say
              “I guess so”….
              please -do me a favor and tell me to go scratch my ass instead of saying “I guess so”.

              • When someone asks me to do something I have learned to say, “You can ask.”….they just look at me….and I say, “Go ahead and ask and I will tell you if I am willing to do it.” I have that right to decide, lol. I have also learned not to volunteer for stuff. It is rarely what they tell you in the beginning…it is always much more!!!

          • Powell says:

            Right. Just ask.

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Thanks, Tiara….I thought it was interesting how YoYo tried to convince us she’s over it and yet she’s STILL talking about it… ugh…It’s just crazy to me…

  11. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. It’s collldddd. 😨😨😨 🌀🌀🌀🌀🌀😨😨😨😨😨. Bundle up.
    Last night was a good start to BH. I think we got a peak at how the season will go down. I can’t believe Adrienne didn’t laugh in Brandi’s face when she tried apologizing. Y’all see her tWitter? YES Lisa wAs wrong for pushing Scheana on Brandi. YES Lisa should have and needs to apologize for THAT but DAMN girl! You still hanging on to that? But she’s moving on as she said many times last night. Sighhhhh. And if Kyle asks for another freakin apology for that mag I’m going to SCREAM. Y’all are gonna here me from Sea to Shining Sea.
    Well it’s hummmmp day. Stay warm. Be good and have a great day.
    And where is T-Rex? 😦

  12. Did Brandi say “you’re 75 and eye rolling” or “you act like 5 and eye roll” ??? I wasn’t sure what she said. I thought it was funny because if Lisa had pushed her away any harder she might have landed on her ass or better yet in the pool.

  13. shamrockblonde says:

    well my ice cream was delicious! – as for the show – maybe I had too high an expectation of it – it was fun watching what everyone was wearing at the White party, but not fun listening to Kyle go on about “the party of the year” – it was good to see Kyle and Lisa sitting talking and sometimes smiling but not fun watching them both attempting to get the other to apologize while saying they were both over it – I thought Camille looked great, Adrienne looked a bit scary and Taylor – well she was smiling and not freaking out in the bathroom so there’s that – as for Lisa – I used to watch Days of our Lives and loved her on it – loved her on the Soap net channel too – but on here, she got a bit on my nerves – not sure why though – I also LOVE Mad Men but watching Harry explain putting flowers in a vase was – not something I’d care to watch again – he is almost creepy on Mad Men, so seeing him look so good was a nice surprise! as for Brandi – nothing has changed – she is herself – I feel very sorry for her sons – they do not belong in the bed with her at tht age and now that that little gem of information is out there in the world, her sons are going to be at the very least, teased and laughed at – way to go there Brandi – at least with her I had NO expectations and was not disappointed – and her hair extensions laying out like that creeped me out too – oh! and Lisa – please lose that bump thing on the top of your head – so not good –

  14. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Who says “Can I take you to coffee?”….it’s not like taking someone to dinner!!!

  15. rabblerouser2010R says:

    I thought Kyle’s hair and dress looked beautiful last night. even though I like Kyle, I have never really cared for her taste in clothing for the most part…and it also didn’t look like she was whipping her hair back and forth last night.

    • Hi rabblerouser, I thought Kyle looked beautiful last night too!

    • Austin says:

      She looks like she trimmed down, too. Or maybe it was just the dress. Not that she had a weight problem, but when you have to stand next to a bunch of size 0s it makes women like Kyle and Lisa V. look bigger by comparison. In any case, she did look really pretty last night.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        You might be right, especially wearing all white in a form fitting dress. It doesn;t seem like it would hide any bump or bulge well.

    • Powell says:

      Yes. I always love Kyle’s hair. She had it styled perfectly for that gorgeous dress. I don’t like everything Kyle wears.

  16. Foxymel11(Mel) says:

    Thank you so much, Stars and Hydrangea for the great blogs.

    I always say that I’ll keep an open mind when it comes to a new season of any Housewife show–but Brandi just came off looking so pitiful. Why does she need an entourage of people to make her feel better about herself when she’s around grown ups? I was baffled when she came in and kissed all the girls and then just walked away. Why not stick around and make yourself part of the group? She’s so insecure with all her little comments and running away to the bathroom. I just can’t with her. She also mentions that she’s still renting and it’s that they’re displaced since her boys sleep in her bed? What the heck? I truly feel sorry for her. I have a feeling that she will not be a full time housewife next season and what will she do for money? Smh

    I loved seeing all of the ladies and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the season unfolds!

    Thanks Chismosita once again for going to Lisa’s Sangria event !

    • mrs peabody says:

      I thought it odd she took her makeup/hairdresser to the party, what happened to all her girlfriends, didn’t they want to go to the most fabulous party of the year in la that everyone wants to go to. I thought it was fun seeing the originals together again and the none of the new ones there with them. Kind of like a snub to Yoyo and Brandi.

      • Rebecca wishes dragons would appear and roast every Housewife who says or does something stupid. says:

        What happened with her BFF Kim? She didn’t want to be around her either?

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Thanks, Foxy… and I totally agree… It’s like she’s 14 or something…I don’t know what all has been going on behind scenes… but when you know you’re going to be filming with people… Why wouldn’t you make a preemptive call to make sure everything is all good? Or maybe they’re not supposed to so it heightens the drama? Who knows?.

    • Powell says:

      I don’t feel sorry for her. She’s making crazy decisions of her own free will. I do feel sorry for her boys.

  17. shamrockblonde says:

    completely off topic but wanted to share this with you all – I happen to love Dean Martin – he does a duet of Baby it’s Cold Outside which is one of my all time favorite Christmas songs – but this video of Michael Buble and Idina Menzel singing – notice I said singing – this duet is just perfection!!! and I want to share it with all of you! Enjoy!!!

      I watched this morning-I love it so much!!

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      OMG- I am so in love with Dean Martin. I even read two of his kids books about growing up with him as a dad and follow them on facebook. He really is still the king of cool.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        PS just watched the video, it was so charming and the duet really was a compliment to Deano. Thanks for the link.

    • Exit4 says:

      So cute! I love this song too! But it doesn’t really “feel” like Christmas until I hear my song. “All I Want For Christmas” by Mariah. I can hear that song all day!

      Religious wise-my favorite is “O Holy Night”.

      My oldest likes “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” and my littlest’s song is “Dominic the Donkey”-take a guess why? Lol

  18. I tweeted Brandi, we will see if she answers…. #staystrong

  19. VV™ says:

    Just to be clear. When Eddie married Brandi, SHE was the bread winner in that family and supporting him, right? If I recall correctly, she claims she bought the tires for his bike, she bought the boat Eddie too Schaenna boating in. Eddie has always been supported by his wives. Brandi didn’t loose any steady income from divorcing him. My understanding is he wasn’t even involved with his own kids until LR came into the picture.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I don’t think Brandi was ever the bread winner-Edie worked pretty much all through their marriage-her saying she bought the tires could mean so many things in Brandiland!!
      I would love to know why it cost her so much money to rent a condo for 2 months and store her furniture? She is terrible with money management!!! And who the hell moves every year???

      • TexasTart says:

        Mentally unstable people move often!

      • jezzibel says:

        He was on Third Watch pretty much from beginning to end, playing pretty much himself(its the only thing I really remember him being in)but I’m sure he acted in other stuff, I think he was in CSI: Miami, for a minute.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Yes he was on CSI and he did Sunset Beach for a few years before Third Watch

        • Powell says:

          He did a soap, Sunset Beach in the 90s. It was on NBC. I think he was on until it was canceled, maybe a 5 yr run. I liked it.
          I think he previously anyway before the sugar Momma, worked steadily. He did other soaps too. OLTL I think, a short term role. But he didn’t lack from jobs. He was an idiot to lose CSI Miami. He was good on that. He does tv and movies now but I’m not sure how steady it is currently.

    • kit9 says:

      No, she’s said that after the divorce was the first time she’s supported herself in years. Words to that effect. And, I remember her referring to it as her boat but I took that to mean hers as in they’re married so everything they have is half hers.

  20. chismosa says:

    Veena – I emailed you at like 7:30 am my time this morning. Not sure if you got my “recap” of the Lisa signing ….

  21. VV™ says:

    Brandi and Yofo are so tight. Why weren’t they hanging out at the White Party? I don’t recall a single scene of Brandi complaining to Yofo about how she perceived the other ones were treating her? Ver very odd.

    I’ve been saying it for a while now, Brandi is playing victim. I wonder how much of this is scripted by Bravo. Based on Twitter is working some.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Brandi has always had a handful of very active followers who treat her like a damaged little bird-there are not a lot of them but they do nothing but tweet day and night-she is not getting as much sympathy as she had a few seasons ago…her clock is ticking!!!
      Why wasn’t she hanging out with Yolanda? That was so weird -and why did she have to bring her hair stylist and make up guy to the party? Where are friends-you know the hanger-ons from past seasons??

    • I am thinking Yolanda is WAY smarter than I have given her credit…I think she keeps Brandi as a “friend” in order to keep from being her enemy. She has seen Brandi go on the attack and it ain’t pretty. Yolo is playing it smart, but keeps her at arms length.

      • VV™ says:

        Brandi already told the world that Joanna K slept with Mohamed. I’m sure Yofo has told her other secrets.

        Yolanda has been smart at promoting Gigi on the show. Granted she’s talented and pretty. Her exposure on the show has helped.

  22. VV™ says:

    Starz99!!!!! Great blog!

  23. TexasTart says:

    I read in comments on another blog that Andy took questions at a book signing and confirmed Jersey Belle will not be renewed because they didn’t have the ratings. 😦

    It’s probably true because the show reflected how women can form and hold true friendships, support one another and work out differences in a civil manner. That explains why it was just too good to stay on Bravo! Jamie Primak was hilarious. I’m sure we will see her either on the TV herself, or at least as executive producer of something on another network.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Andy didn’t confirm it would be cancelled and he tweeted to make that clear-Jaime from Jersey Belle was tweeting that Andy would never say a show is cancelled at a book signing b/c that’s not they way networks do things-Andy replied that she was right.

      • TexasTart says:

        OH! Thank you Jill, I missed that Tweet!!! I was thinking so, but you know after I find out that Andy’s book talks about he had Bethenny in the bag LONG before it was made public, I thought this was another one of those things and he slipped. Gosh I hope it comes back, but I still stand by it’s too good a show for Bravo, lol.

      • VV™ says:

        Bloody Hell!!! I just now noticed your gravy! LOL

    • Powell says:

      Awww. I didn’t watch much. I read an article about her and her husband’s relationship after their kids were born. She said he was basically enamoured w/the kids when he got home, spent all his time, cuddling, playing, doing bedtime but ignored her. It went on a few yrs and she had enough and told him if things didn’t change in their relationship she wanted a divorce. They worked through it. Have a date night. Spend time together in the evening. Etc. Interesting article.

    • VV™ says:

      I wonder who added the extra zero. This is why I wanted to hear her side.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        Ah, okay….that sounds a LOT more reasonable…
        I mean, even the BEST attorney’s out there are lucky to get 1.5 for a murder trial and that usual includes payment for a ton of expert testimony.

      • TexasTart says:

        It would also be nice if Lisa would make her numbers/punctuation clear when clarifying!
        Is she saying it was only $150,000 ? That would make more sense!

        • VV™ says:

          Tarts if you add a zero to 150,000, you get 1.5 mil. I thought it was clear. 😀

          • TexasTart says:

            It was clear if you know the period is a comma and all the while saying someone added a zero…get it?!

            • VV™ says:

              Sorry Tarts! I’m on my phone. Couldn’t tell if , or . I get what you’re saying now.
              Many European countries and Latin American countries use a period instead of a comma to separate decimals.

              Try it now

              • Anne says:

                I could only read the summary of the order, which says that the unopposed motion for attorneys fees filed by the plaintiffs has been granted. Amount listed was 1.4 + million. Lisa is correct to say that the report of a 1.5 million dollar award to the plaintiff is not true, because the payment will be made to the attorneys. This is an award to cover the attorney costs — time worked, expert witnesses, etc. I think that there were some battles over discovery (documents requested by the plaintiffs and not produced timely or in full by Villa Blanca or the Vanderpump/Todd defendants). Delays increase the cost of litigation — which is why it is hard for the individual to prevail in litigation against large corporations.

                It may also be true that the Villa Blanca attorneys made some kind of payment as part of the appeal of the judgment and that the amount was 150k. (I am not admitted to practice in CA). I would say that Lisa is answering the question asked by deflecting and reframing (a standard PR technique).

                What I think is interesting is the fact that Lisa’s attorneys apparently did not file a motion in opposition to the motion for attorneys fees. In my experience as an in-house lawyer and a government lawyer (in jurisdictions other than CA), attorney fee awards are usually heavily negotiated by the parties before submitting a joint order to the judge for final approval. Apparently, that did not occur in this case and I wonder why not.
