Real Housewives of Beverly Hills “Surprise” / Vanderpump Rules “Ring on a String”

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

“Surprise!” – S5E14

by Stars99


Remember last week…

We saw the aftermath of Kyle’s GameNightGate 2015™©® which was really just an aftermath of PokerGate 2015™©®. I suppose I could go on and on… But don’t we all know what the real story is here? Kim, who is an addict, is pretending to be sober but she’s not – She needs a storyline this season since she no longer has her dog (Kingsley is now living elsewhere) and her laundry is all folded (Last season those were Kim’s highlights… No, really…lol). Brandi is pretending to give a damn about Kim because she also needs a storyline and she doesn’t wear enough clothes to be able to shoot a scene about folding laundry. I think we’re going to see a whole new set of problems surface at the Reunion since Kim has probably spilled a whole lot of drunken tea on the inner workings of her family to her new bestie Brandi. They both seem to not like Kyle very much. In a weird, twisted way Brandi seems like a controlling friend who is actively separating a weak gazelle (Kim) from the rest of the herd under the guise of “protecting” her. I think Brandi is a wolf in cheap clothing.

Brandi is very willing and capable to use very personal and intimate information about anyone in a very public way because spilling it secures her place on the show – No matter the relationship or the damage that it causes. Brandi (The Twit) did it just last week when Yolanda (YoYo) tried to have an adult conversation with Brandi about drinking too much and Brandi retaliated by telling YoYo that people were calling YoYo’s daughter an “alcoholic.”

We also unfortunately learned that Eileen (That Tramp I Now Love) has lost 2 of her 4 sisters in the last 5 years. Eileen knows the significance of the relationship between sisters and felt naively compelled to host a “sister summit” where absolutely nothing was accomplished between Kim and Kyle except a lot of pointing and blaming. Lisa R had a friendship summit with Brandi regarding her perspective on Kim’s addiction issues. Eileen and Lisa R are not being fooled by anyone this season and are rational, articulate and hilarious. I really love it – Let’s see what tonight’s episode holds in store for us, shall we?

This week…

We start out with Brandi visiting Yolanda at her home. Brandi agreed to be on a “21 Day Cleanse” which prevents her from drinking alcohol or eating sugar but evidently she can take all the Xanax she wants, no problem. I think Brandi’s got this whole Xanax thing wrong – I think the rest of us should be allowed to take one whenever we’re subjected to Brandi’s freakin’ antics, no? Yolanda and Brandi take another yoga lesson from her personal instructor like in last week’s episode. Yolanda asks the guy if he can do the “Crow” position. He effortlessly demonstrates it and Brandi boasts she can easily do it, too. It takes about 2 seconds for Brandi to fall on her face. She blames her age. Somewhere off in the distance a crow caws, “Nevermore.” (I know, I know – It was a raven… but close enough, no? (Gratuitous Edgar Allen Poe reference…)

Kyle visits Lisa V to talk with her about her issues with Kim and Brandi. Lisa’s advice to Kyle is to separate her differences with Brandi from her differences with Kim. She also advises Kyle to be cordial. Kyle is not convinced that Lisa V would have given her this same advice 6 months ago. I dunno – Sounds like pretty smart advice, if you ask me… but I guess nobody did…lol….

Eileen (That Trump I Now Love) and Vince (My Boyfriend) are having an amazing dinner at Kristy’s in Malibu ( Eileen starts to clue in Vince about the situation between Kyle, Kim and Brandi. Eileen cannot understand why no one wants to go to therapy – She loves therapy! They start talking about the upcoming screenplay read-through of one of Vince’s scripts.  Eileen wants to know about Vince’s plan for the reading and tells him there will be no alcohol since it’s scheduled for 1:00 PM in the afternoon. Vince disagrees and says the alcohol will loosen the women up to feel more comfortable to do the reading. Eileen says that this group of women mostly just wants to talk about their vaginas. Vince is still not convinced about the no alcohol portion of the program and actually says with a completely straight face, “What can they do wrong?” Give that man an academy award! He must have selective memory of PokerGate 2015™©®. Well, at least Brandi won’t be there, so there’s that… lol.

Lisa R visits Lisa V so they can drive to the table read together. They inevitably talk about Kim and Kyle and their relationship. Lisa V says she worries about Kim and she knows she needs to have a relationship with her sister. Lisa R agrees and says, “It’s not necessarily our place to… You know… Stage an intervention…” Lisa V immediately responds that they don’t even know what’s going on with Kim. Lisa R wonders, “Why is everyone scared of Kim Richards?”… Lisa V cautions that Lisa R is playing with fire if Lisa R wants to question Kim’s sobriety… Lisa V learned from her experience in Paris to stay out of it that particular subject.

Brandi meets Jennifer (Bravo identifies Jennifer as Brandi’s Friend/Addiction Specialist). Jennifer just had a breakup and wants to spend a few nights at Brandi’s house. Brandi gets a call from Ken who says that he’s throwing a surprise party for Lisa V and he’s calling to invite Brandi because Lisa V would not want him to leave anyone out. However, he clearly sets boundaries when he says, “I want you to be on your best behavior.” Ken doesn’t want anything or anyone to spoil Lisa’s birthday. After hanging up, Brandi said, “Kind of fucked up.” You’re right, Brandi… It IS downright embarrassing and pretty sad that someone has to tell a 42-year-old adult to be on their best behavior. You can act like such a twit.

Brandi tells Jennifer that Kim admitted to taking a pill prescribed to her ex-husband (who is dying of cancer).  Jennifer clearly lets Brandi know that’s called, “Relapsing.” Brandi talks about all of the sudden feeling weird about drinking in front of Kim. Jennifer tells her that it took her 5 years in her sobriety to be able to be around people in those kinds of circles. Jennifer asks if Kim goes to meetings… Does she have a sponsor? Does she go to therapy? Jennifer wonders if Brandi is equipped to help Kim at this point and asks Brandi bluntly if she has the tools to save Kim or help her? Jennifer quickly clarifies says that no one can save Kim but Kim… But that people can help her…Brandi says that Kim doesn’t have the tools at this point. Jennifer asks if Kyle gone off on Kim recently? Brandi doesn’t think Kyle knows what’s going on… She said that Kyle just thinks that it’s Kim’s history just repeating itself… but it’s much more than just that…

Kim gets in the car with Kyle. They have not spoken to each other since Eileen’s “Sister Summit” failure. They both decide to be superficially nice to each other. Kim says that she wanted to tear Eileen’s head off at last week’s lunch… Wait… What?  Kim says it’s not appropriate to go into somebody’s life like that. Oh Kim, give me a break… You’re on a reality TV show… You fell off the wagon in front of our eyes… You’re acting wonky – We would positively scream if your behavior was just ignored. Kyle tells Kim that she talked to Lisa V about the whole situation. She said that Lisa V had asked her she would let anything that Brandi says impact her. Kim sits there again and says that Brandi doesn’t realize how much Kim and Kyle have been there for each other… And why is that, Kim? It’s because YOU DON’T EVER TELL HER. Is this as frustrating to you as it is to me?

As she’s waiting for people to arrive, Eileen concludes that someone is probably going to get hit over the head with a script before the day is over. There may be some hope though, since Brandi’s not there. As they’re waiting around for everyone to get there, Vince makes small talk with Kim. He asks her to name some of the most famous actors with whom she’s worked. Kim says, “Bette Davis (Among others, she was in, “All About Eve,” “Death on the Nile,” and “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?”… I know her for her famous quote, “”Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night.” And the songs, “Bette Davis Eyes” by Kim Carnes and “Vogue” by Madonna) and Darren McGavin (I know him as the grumpy dad in, “A Christmas Story”),

Lisa r e v reading

Kim tells us the story that as a child, she asked Bette Davis if she wore a wig. She described that she hid in Bette’s sofa bed until she got back from filming for the day (They were in, “Return from Witch Mountain” together). Kim caught Bette taking off her wig – but she won’t tell anyone to this day the color of her real hair.

LISA R th laugh

As everyone sits down and parts for the reading are assigned, Vince (My boyfriend) asks Lisa R if she wouldn’t mind being the voice of the announcer throughout the entire reading and she quickly says that of course she’d be happy to do it. However, in her talking head, (TH) Lisa R laughingly says, “What a waste of my talent – [dejected sigh] It’s alright… Let the girls who haven’t worked as much as I have play the parts” She completely cracks up at herself… lol… Lisa V wants to switch parts with Lisa R. During their limo ride home, Kim and Kyle have an extended conversation about how the parts were assigned ( Evidently; Kim didn’t like being a worm. It might have been type casting… Just sayin’… lol…

Vince what did you say


Lisa V wants to see Eileen’s Emmy. Eileen hands it to her like she had just won it, and Lisa V says, “I slept my way to the top I make no bones about it… I could show all these bimbos a trick or two – I wouldn’t have an Emmy – I’d have an Oscar.”

Kim Puppet

The reading seemed to go well and it looked like it was fun but the script was a little wacky to be able to make sense out of the 30 seconds we heard of it…lol. But at one point, Kim put on a sock puppet…lol… After the reading, everyone’s standing around in the kitchen talking about the person who isn’t there (Brandi). Lisa R says that she had lunch with Brandi and that it was fun. Eileen says that it’s fine with Brandi until it’s not. Lisa R wonders about where Brandi’s attitude comes from…

Kim says it’s a difficult thing for her because Kyle is her sister and Brandi is her friend. Lisa R empathetically asks Kim what it’s like for her. Kim confirms that it puts her in a very bad situation. Kim explains that she’s going through a lot at the moment. Monty is not well – And that watching him not be well is very hard. She loves that she can go over to Brandi’s to escape for an hour or so. Kim was admonished not to let Brandi come in between her and Kyle. Kim tells everyone that Brandi doesn’t know her and Kyle’s history and how much they’ve been through together. Kim discloses that she often isolates when she drinks. Everyone seems to understand that and some even acknowledge doing the same thing. Kim gets nervous when she finds herself isolating from everyone for that very reason.

Lisa R, in her TH says, “The rift between Kyle and Brandi is because of Kim. Why do you want people to fight over you? Because maybe they’re too busy to take a look at what’s really going on with you.” The Lisas are talking with Kim, and Lisa V tells Kim that maybe it would be a good idea if she had someone she could talk to every day to help her keep strong. Please take note that at this point, we do NOT see Kim say anything like she DOES have someone that she talks to or that she in fact is going to meetings, etc. Her blog this week presents her somewhat differently.

Kim response to Lisa V is kind of like – She’s been there – Done that – Got the T-shirt – Sold it on eBay. Lisa V reminds Kim that she has a lot of pressure in her life right now and could really use the help. But Kim, in her TH says that she doesn’t understand why people get involved in things that aren’t their business… She thinks everyone should, “Just mind their own beeswax.” Lisa R encourages Kim that if she’s comfortable that maybe she could go to a meeting…or a group… or do something so that she’s not alone. With a weird ass smile plastered on her face, and in a singsong voice Kim mockingly responds, “Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, right?” Lisa R tells us that Kim doesn’t take any responsibility for her actions and in her TH says, “This is going on and no one is saying, ‘Own your shit.’”

Oh yay… It’s time for Lisa’s surprise birthday party at Pump! Lisa thinks she’s going out to dinner at a nice restaurant alone with Ken. She has no knowledge of this party at all. Lisa and Ken are in a limo on the way to the party when Ken receives “a text” from Pump that requires his immediate, physical presence so he decides they’ll just stop on the way to the restaurant. Lisa wants Ken to forego the stop because it’s her birthday. Ken actually calls the driver, “Driver” and asks him to stop at Pump. Lisa reminds Ken that the driver’s name is “James” and she directs “James” not to stop. They go back and forth with this a couple of times. I can’t help but laugh that they actually have a driver with the perfect name for a chauffeur, “James.” As in, “Home, James!”

Eileen (That Tramp I Now Love) and Vince (My Boyfriend) seem to arrive at the party first and decide to go to the bar. Lisa R joins them and the two new girls are wearing fabulous pink in honor of Lisa. They discuss their conversation with Kim that occurred after the screenplay reading. Lisa R didn’t understand why Eileen seemed to back out of the conversation. Eileen seems to think Kim’s actions aren’t matching up with what she’s saying. They talk about how Kim was sad about Monty and how she had expressed she was concerned that she was going to start isolating herself and going back into old behavior patterns. Eileen thinks that Kim should understand that she needs to talk to someone so that she can get back on track. Eileen asks Lisa if Brandi knows anything since Kim and Brandi are such good friends. Lisa says that Brandi is concerned.

Of the fight between Kim, Kyle and Brandi, Eileen says, “It seems like if you care about your relationship with your sister then you need to tell your friend to shut up.” She says further, “Part of the reason for this fighting is that Brandi made horrible accusations about Kyle and Kim never said it wasn’t true. Ever…”

Kathy Hilton is in a limo with Kim and Brandi on the way to Lisa’s party. Brandi and Kim are cluing in Kathy about Eileen.  Brandi tells her that she’s reserved and that that Eileen just sits back and observes everyone and then judges them. Kim says that Eileen and Lisa R have their favorites and that neither Brandi nor Kim is one of them. Brandi admits, “I did throw wine in her face on accident.” Kathy’s getting nervous about all this drama and wonders if she should admit knowing either one of them.

While everyone is waiting for the Royal Vanderpump arrival, they’re hanging out and talking. Yolanda takes Kim to the side and tells her that she there’s been a lot of talk about her but she’s not listening to anything unless it comes from Kim. She tells her she’s not there to judge her but to just be there for her. Kim seems to really appreciate this type of approach. Of course she does – Kim doesn’t want to be confronted about anything – and wants to be supported in her behavior.

Surprise Lisa

Lisa and Ken walk into the party and everyone yells, “SURPRISE!” Lisa is absolutely shocked. She gushes, “I did not have a clue… Not a bloody clue.” Lisa talks about how lovely it is to be surrounded by people who have been supportive, kind and sweet, oh, and also Brandi…lol. Once everyone is seated for dinner, Mohammed makes a toast to Lisa. Again, we see Brandi drinking something right in the middle of the toast. Now, to be fair – I don’t know if it’s just editing or if Brandi truly is that clueless in life.

Brandi tells us in her TH that she thinks that Lisa and Mohammed’s relationship is creepy. Brandi leaves after the toast(s) but before Lisa has a chance to give a little speech. Lisa gets up to make her speech and immediately notices that Brandi is gone – and says, “First off… Where’s Brandi? She’s not at the table so I can talk about her…(laugh laugh) She’s such a bitch and I cannot believe she had the nerve to show up… I’m joking… Yolanda, I’m joking.” Yolanda says, “I know.” But Kim sits there with darts in her eyes for Lisa.

As an aside, Brandi and Yolanda seem to be wearing the exact same very distinctive dress but in a different color. You decide who wore it better in this week’s segment, “Bitch Stole My Look.” Lololol…

Bitch stolem my look

Meanwhile, Kyle asks Ken why he invited Brandi and wants to know if he’s forgiven her for everything she did to them. Ken confirms that it’s not that he’s forgiven her but that he hates to leave anyone out. Kyle thinks that if she is going to have a party where you invite people because it’s the politically correct thing to do – You’re going to end up spending a lot of time at a party with people you don’t want to be around.

At one point during the party, Brandi is suddenly wearing a huge pink flower behind her ear that she obviously swiped from table decoration thingie hanging over the table right in front of her. Evidently, Brandi didn’t learn her lesson from her olive branch incident earlier this season.  Lisa V walks over to Brandi, takes the flower out from behind Brandi’s ear and returns it to the decorative hangie down thingie while saying, “That belongs to me.” The flower must have had thorns because Brandi said that it hurt but that she’s giving Lisa a pass since it’s her birthday. I think Lisa is tired of Brandi dismantling her restaurant decorations.

In tonight’s 1st edition of “I Kid You Not,” Brandi (The Twit) talks in her TH about Lisa returning the flower to its rightful place among the decorations and the pain from the thorns that it caused her when she did so, I KID YOU NOT “Yes, it was a jab, but listen, if I was turning 73 I would be a little jabby, too.”  Whoa… That’s so incredibly mean and underhanded and hitting way below the belt where she knows that Lisa is most vulnerable.

However, to be fair, while Lisa had no idea that Brandi had made that kind of statement about her since the coward said it in her TH, Lisa V knows exactly where Brandi is most vulnerable, too. Lisa knows that Brandi hates to sing and that she can’t sing. Lisa tells Brandi that if Brandi wants to make up with her, she should get up and sing for her. Lisa V asks Brandi if she knows the words to, “Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word.” Brandi decides to take Lisa V up on her dare and gets up and takes the microphone screeches out a made up song. All dogs within a 30 mile radius began to inexplicably howl. I got images of “My Best Friend’s Wedding” when Cameron Diaz sang that horrible karaoke song but was a great sport about it.

Menopausal women

Lisa V takes the microphone and calls Kim up and they sing a little song, too… Then it’s Lisa R… and then Kyle gets sandwiched between two Lisas. Everyone seems to be having the best time ever. Well, except Brandi, who has returned to her seat at the table and is whining about it.

In tonight’s 2nd edition of “I Kid You Not,” Brandi (The Twit) refers to all of the women who are karaoke singing, I KID YOU NOT “The Menopause Mamas were fighting over the mic and I wasn’t about to jump in that fight cuz momma still gets the flow if you know what that means… ” Yes Brandi… The entire WORLD knows you still have your flow and we’ve seen your recent picture with a tampon string hanging down that proves it. Congratulations to you.

Eileen sits down with Kyle to talk about Kim. She tells Kyle that she doesn’t want her to feel weird and that she knows she’s very protective of her sister. But she tells her that whatever the “Program is” that Kim is supposed to be doing – that she is not doing it. Eileen tells Kyle about the conversation she had with Lisa R about Kim. She asks questions that Kyle is either not able to answer or won’t answer regarding if Kim has a sponsor… or if she has someone that she’s talking to regularly about her sobriety… Eileen says that she agrees with Lisa R that they have a moral obligation to say something to Kim because they have now seen this behavior firsthand.. Kyle doesn’t think it’s going to go well. Being around and seeing the behavior and yet not doing anything about it feels irresponsible to Eileen. Whoa.. We’ll see what happens, won’t we?

Another Thing we learned from this episode…

~~ Lisa R’s daughter Delilah had only been driving for 2 months when this segment was filmed. Lisa R was panicked beyond belief as she got into the car with her. Lisa is nervous because she doesn’t want to physically scare Delilah by her own reactions when Delilah’s driving scares the heck out of her. It was a fun, short scene – but clear the roads… Seriously. In fairness to Delilah, that street she was driving on was holy cow busy.

Next week…

Lisa R attends David Foster’s charity event… Yolanda organizes a fun race type of party… The girls go to Amsterdam… And Kim lashes out at Kyle because evidently she’s late to get onto a bus… I kinda wonder who’s under the bus…

Well, that’s it for this episode… Thanks so much for reading… Have a most excellent week! Happy Trails!


Vanderpump Rules

“Ring on a String” – by HydrangeaHussy

Before we get to the episode, my favorite RHoBH was a monarch in one of my favorite Mardi Gras parades on Monday!  Lisa V, along with the NCIS cast, were monarchs of the Krewe of Orpheus this year.  Bit of history: Orpheus was formed in 1994 by a group that includes Harry Connick, Jr.  The monarchs are traditionally celebrities.  Anyway, a friend who attended sent some pics of Lisa V & Ken on her float.  I love that, although Giggy didn’t ride, he was represented by a photo!  It was raining, so their costumes are covered by ponchos.

IMG_6600 (Small) IMG_6601 (Small)

Now on to the episode!  It’s hard to believe that we’re on Episode 16!  Last season was only regular 14 episodes, then the reunion and secrets revealed.  We begin this week with Scheana and Shay taking post-wedding pictures.  Kristen tears up with happiness for Scheana, but we know that won’t last.  Kristen will find a way to ruin Scheana’s big day.  Everyone moves on to the cocktail hour and we see James getting double shots of tequila.  A friend teases him that he’ll be next, but James isn’t so sure.  He’s still upset that Kristen doesn’t always reciprocate his love.  Of course she doesn’t!  She’s still obsessed with Tom!  James wants her to focus on him, not Tom.  Kristen stops to say hello to Lisa – very awkward.  Lisa asks what Kristen is up to.  Kristen tells her that she’s loving her freedom and should have quit a long time ago.  The two have finally agreed on something!  Kristen still believes that she got fired because Lisa doesn’t like her.  No, she got fired because of her attitude.  Maybe she’ll realize that when she gets fired from her next job?  Lisa tries to give Kristen some advice – don’t orchestrate and cause drama, but Kristen doesn’t want to listen.  She keeps saying that her personal life isn’t Lisa’s business, but she made it Lisa’s business when she caused a disruption at Sur.  Kristen tells us that she isn’t going to cause trouble at the wedding, even though everyone thinks she will.

Stassi makes a reappearance this week.  She and Kristina are having drinks together because they weren’t invited to the wedding.  Stassi can’t help but stalk Scheana on Twitter, or Instagram, or something, so that she can make fun of Scheana’s dress and Lisa.  I wonder if they realize how petty and jealous they sound.  They sound like the high school girls that didn’t get invited to the prom.

At the wedding, it’s on to dinner.  Scheana’s reception is just as beuatiful as her wedding.  Katie is thinking about her own wedding and hopes that it will be as beautiful.  Other Tom thought that he would feel bad for Shay during the wedding, but says that he can now see himself getting married.  Scheana is managing the entrances, which seems like something her wedding coordinator should be handling.  Jax says that he isn’t pursuing Carmen but he isn’t not not pursuing her either.  Whatever.  Vail happens to be sitting with them and Carmen seems a little upset when Jax speaks to her.  The wedding party is announced, but the DJ has messed up the song so they will not walk out at the right part of the song.  Scheana freaks out because she had a dance ready and now it’s ruined.  Poor Shay, he looks like he’s just ready to get a drink.  They finally get in touch with the DJ, who cuts the music.  Scheana’s whole reception is now ruined, lol.  Once again, everyone is left waiting for Scheana and Shay to appear.  They finally appear and it’s like they are rockstars.  There are are cameras flashing and everyone is cheering.

Their first dance is sweet!  Shay tears up a little.  Jax is really turned on the “charm” for Carmen, trying to convice her to kiss him.  He tells Carmen that they will slow dance later.  She asks if he means that, and Jax says, “Who else am I going to dance with, Vail?”  At least he realizes it was a stupid thing to say?  Carmen is not pleased.  He apologizes and continues trying to kiss her, even though she’s pulling away.  You shouldn’t have to physically hold a girl’s head to get her to kiss you.  It was incredibly uncomfortable to watch.  We later see how off his game Jax is.  Or maybe it’s just that bottle of vodka he was chugging?  Then it’s time to start the real dancing.  Scheana tells us that she made sure to leave room in her dress for twerking.

3 (Small)

Tom is happy to be part of the wedding party, because he’s away from Kristen.  James has decided to deal with his issues by drinking heavily.  This isn’t going to end well.  James also tells us that he’s at his best-mate’s wedding, but if Shay was your best-mate, wouldn’t you be in the wedding?  Jax, Carmen, and Kristen leave the table, but James doesn’t go with them.  Kristen says that James skips the happy drunk phase and goes straight to belligerent.  She’s not the happiest person either, even when she isn’t drinking.  She should be a little more understanding since James puts up with her BS all day every day.  Sheana makes a toast and asks everyone to please keep their drinks off the dance floor.  She doesn’t want anyone to slip and fall.  Vail and Peter get very flirty, but Vail tells us that it isn’t going anywhere for him.  On the way back to the table, James tells Carmen that Kristen is being difficult and that she’s only heard Kristen’s side of the story.  Thankfully, Carmen tries to difuse the situation.  Kristen continues trying to get James to drink water and/or eat, but nothing is working.

Other Tom and Katie are cheerfully planning their weddings.  She hasn’t really decided what she wants for her wedding, but she has lots of ideas.  Other Tom pulls her away from the table.  He knows that she deserves better than how he’s been treating her.  He apologizes again for his behavior and pulls out a small box.  It’s a ring on a necklace, but not an engagement ring.  Other Tom wants it to be a symbol of how committed he is to her.  Katie is not impressed.  She tells him that a ring on a string isn’t what a girl her age really wants from her boyfriend of four years.  She now thinks that they have even more issues.  Other Tom admits that he has some commitment issues and acknowledges that the ring may not have been the best idea.

Back at the wedding, everyone else is dancing, including Kristen and James.  Tom and Ariana are making out on the dance floor.  Carmen is still putting Jax off.  He seems to think that Carmen is going home with him, but she obviously isn’t.  He seems confused that someone wouldn’t want him, lol!  Stassi and Kristina are ending their evening at Stassi’s apartment.  We still haven’t seen her elusive boyfriend.  They start talking about marriage and families.  Stassi was planning to have Katie as maid of honor, but now she’s cut out of the wedding.  Katie sends a picture of the reception and Stassi has to admit that the reception was beautiful.

4 (Small)

Lisa comes upon Katie, who’s taking a break from the wedding.  She’s visibly upset.  Katie explains to Lisa why she’s upset and shows her the ring on string.  Lisa hopes that Katie will get her man, but questions whether Other Tom is worth waiting for.  Lisa tells Katie that she has two options – continue waiting or move on.  She also tells Katie not to settle.  She thinks that the ring is a gift that would be given if the two didn’t want to get married.  At some point, Jax turns his charm on Lisa V, leading her into my quote of the night – “Jax has a better chance of becoming a Rhodes Scholar than he does of making it with me.”  Love her!

Back at the table, Kristen is ordering an Uuber car when James approaches.  I’m not sure what happened since we last saw them, but James is pissed.  I don’t really follow what he’s talking about, but I’ll try to give a summary.  He asks Kristen if she wants to do this here and Kristen walks away, saying James has issues.  He follows Kristen off, telling her that she got what she wanted because she isn’t over Tom.  She tells him to drink some water and calm down, which we know he’ll never do.  She says that alcohol just magnifies James’ personality traits, like his jealous.  Um, he kind of has a reason to be jealous here.  I’m kind of surprised that Kristen keeps trying to walk away from him.  Even though he’s the one in her face and being loud, he tells her her to calm down.

Scheana is freaking out because she can’t find Danielle, the wedding coordinator.  We see Danielle clearing tables.  She just needs to calm down and enjoy her reception.  Apparently the reception didn’t turn out the way she wanted and she didn’t get to dance to any of her songs.  That’s kind of what happens at a reception, the bride and groom get caught up in everything and don’t always have time for themselves.  She’s also upset because people are leaving and she hasn’t cut the cake or tossed her bouquet.  Yeah, I’d want those things to happen before people leave too.  Danielle appears and says that she has asked the DJ to announce things several times.  Scheana tells her to steal the microphone and make it happen.

Kristen is talking to her trainer, wonder how she affords that, and James is talking to Max.  Max points out that Kristen is still at the reception and tells James to make up with her.  Kristen is leaving with Trevor-the-trainer when James chases them into the parking lot.  Rather than apologize, he chases Kristen down to tell her how badly she treats him.  Kristen pushes him away and James gets even closer to her.  Trevor asks him to get out of Kristen’s face, and James turns on Trevor.  While he later admits that he was acting like a jerk, he seems to blame it on Trevor’s presence.

5 (Small)

Among the things that James yells at Kristen: you have no respect for me, you treat my like your boy toy, everyone talks trash about you and it’s all true, she’ll never find someone to marry.  I’m not going to disagree with much of what he says, but James was out of control.  Kristen tells him that they’re done, but James sticks around to keep yelling at her.  He chases her down the driveway and tries to stop her.  She turns around and hits him!  Twice!  So much for staying under the radar!  Trevor agrees that she had no choice but to hit him.  While I hate to side with Kristen, I have to agree that she tried to walk away from the fight but James wouldn’t let it go.

Scheana is still annoyed because she never got to eat her food.  She had a timeline of events for the reception, and things didn’t happen the way she wanted.  Ariana points out that no one else knows about the timeline or realizes that things are behind schedule.  In a true Bridezilla moment, Scheana start crying because things aren’t perfect.  Ariana keeps trying to comfort her.  They toast and everything is ok.  Scheana seems to finally be having a good time dancing.  They throw the garter and bouquet, cut the cake, and dance.  Katie dances in the fountain, so she apparently got over the ring on a string.  James searches out Tom to tell him that he was punched by Kristen.  Tom isn’t too surprised and tells James to stop making excuses for Kristen’s behavior.  Tom invites James to hang out with them for the rest of the night.  I have to wonder how Brandi feels about Lisa’s good wishes for Scheana.

It’s the morning after and everyone gathers at a bungalow.  Scheana is trying to get things cleaned up so she doesn’t get fined.  Although she wasn’t worried about it last night, Scheana is now upset that Kristen threw a punch at her wedding.  Um, she’s only heard James’ side of the story on this.  He didn’t mention the fact that he chased her down and was yelling in her face.  Kristen is no longer invited to anything that Scheana does in the future.  I know that it is usually Kristen who starts the fights, I have to say that this one was on James.  The group goes to help Scheana clean flowers out of the fountain, since she is doing her own clean-up to save money.

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

      100% not surprised.

      And Jim Marchese is still competing to be the biggest bitch of the housewives shows. This time he’s whining to People.

    • plainviewsue says:

      Karma………….clink clink.

      • VV™ says:

        LOL SO SO TRUE! Thanks for the laugh, Sue.

      • T-Rex says:

        Not really the whole lawsuit is for about $5000 it is not a class action, A) because I can’t find anything about it anywhere legally, and B) from the information, not verified, it’s only two workers who want $2500.00/each. They were both fired from their jobs, according to the websites and this is why they are suing. BUT again, Teresa Aprea has ZERO ownership in the restaurant, it is owned in a Family Trust by her Husband’s Family.

    • T-Rex says:

      Okay, first off, Teresa is not really a PARTY to this lawsuit, she does NOT own or even have partial ownership in the restaurant, her husband’s FAMILY owns the restaurant, so again, selective information being brought forward. IN ADDITION, I cannot find ANY lawsuit filed in the state of New York actively against the Restaurant. TMZ and the host of other nonsense sites have not provided ONE iota of evidence of a lawsuit. Now since it was only filed yesterday it has probably not hit the dockets yet I will find it IF it does. I did find that the defendants have been sued themselves previously for failure to pay rent. Again, this could be another instance of a pre-emptive strike in the form of a “summons’ which these dumb ass websites post as a lawsuit, they are NOT a lawsuit! They are a pay us hush money, or as we call it “shut-up” money or we are GOING to file a lawsuit! I don’t care for any of the Ho-wives of Jersey and they are all probably crooks to some extent, however I do hate when folks report things like a LAWSUIT with no backup information. I did find one case against Angelo’s from 2000 for an Exterminator that wasn’t paid what he though he should be, but that’s it so far. I again will keep checking the pages.

    • Totally not surprised.

      After all, look what her father did to his workers illegally removing asbestos?

      Apple, tree, all that jazz

      • T-Rex says:

        Sorry, not her monkey, not her circus! She doesn’t own the restaurant!

        • Who cares? Like I said not surprised at all.

          She’s there enough to influence how management treats employees.

          • T-Rex says:

            NOT TRUE FYI! She has nothing to do with the restaurants she is rarely ever even in them, she does none of the books, the hiring, the firing, purchasing, etc. She is not a manager, nor even a managing member of the ownership of the company, she is just a wife of one of the many owners! They live an hour to an hour and a half with traffic from the restaurant, she just happens to be married to a family member that owns the restaurant! She is occasionally there for appearances, which they note on FB and Twatter for publicity for the show, but that’s IT! The restaurant is a partnership of the Silvestri and Aprea family trusts and the Silvestri family have more of a hand in the management of the company from every single article I have read. In addition Reno spends more time at the Ponte Vecchio restaurant in Brooklyn!

  1. plainviewsue says:

    I absolutely LOVED this episode, except for the constant chatter about Kim.

    Wonderful job Starz, but just one small correction. Lisa said they were meeting Mohammad for dinner & she said you know how upset he gets if we’re late or something like that. So it just wasn’t Lisa & Ken.

    I thought the surprise party was one of the most fun segments ever on a HW show. I have to admit even Brandi made me laugh in her TH about Mohammad.

    Lisa R’s blog was a trip, esp regarding the Menopause Mamas and Brandi still having the flow. Brandi cannot stand when people are happy and this group was having a blast.

  2. plainviewsue says:

    Lisa V was great on WWHL. Too bad it wasn’t a live show. I loved how she stood up for Bella & said if it was her daughter, she’d of thrown Brandi out of her house.

  3. Cityside says:

    I cannot think that Yolanda was happy seeing Brandi in the same dress.

    • First thing I thought as how did Brandi afford the same dress as Yo? She usually looks like she’s wearing Forever 21 or Charlotte Russo.

      Second thing I thought was hmmm… Brandi chose pink…

      For me? Yo won hands down.

      • Powell says:

        Someone let her borrow it. Had to.

        • Shiny says:

          When I saw the dresses matched, I first thought Yo had planned it as “cute” to reinforce their doing the long cleanse together, but then I decided Yo bought it for her on some shopping trip together (remember her buying sandals for Brandi in Paris?), but never expected her to wear it on that night. Nothing about it in their blogs?

  4. not THAT Jill says:

    Great blog Starzy and HH..thank you!!
    This whole Kim thing is just out of control!! She used and admitted to it and yet she wants people to not talk about it? If a person is sober and then they use it’s called a relapse-Kim can spin the word around anyway she wants but we SAW her relapse on TV-that can not be disputed but Kim is trying to get everyone to shut up about it-I’m done with her!! She’s a friggen mess and has no one to blame but herself! Who the hell takes drugs when they know they will be filmed and then tries to shut down any talk of it? It’s kind of like Brandi getting drunk during filming and then getting mad when everyone talks about it…what the hell do they want everyone to talk about?? Drunks and pill poppers are hot topics! Two attention whores who crave attention but want to dictate what kind of attention they get.
    Kyle is in a terrible spot and nothing she does will be right. I expect to see Kyle go off on Kim and quite frankly I’m hoping to see it happen. Kim’s problems are not Kyle’s fault. Kim’s addiction is her own and how she handles that addiction is up to her. Kyle can’t help her because Kim doesn’t want help-she wants Brandi. She wants a friend who says NOTHING but positive things even while she’s high-Kyle can’t do that-and she shouldn’t. Kyle also is going out of her way to not mention Kim’s relapse and that’s not helping Kim either but Kyle knows that if she says anything about it she will in the hot seat-maybe she’s just tired of being in the hot seat with Kim. Brandi said Kyle doesn’t know how bad things are with Kim but she doesn’t want to team up with Kyle to help Kim. She wants to divide the sisters and be Kim savior-Kyle should Brandi do just that. Brandi already seems like she’s over Kim and neediness-Brandi doesn’t like that Kim’s problems are taking center stage-she will be done with Kim and turn on her -then Kim will blame Kyle and Kyle will say “what did I do”…Kyle always asks Kim “what did I do” b/c Kim puts the blame on Kyle for everything.
    Brandi and her old lady jokes-seriously? She’s not young!! I’m so over the age crap but it’s all Brandi has. She doesn’t have anything that these other women want so she brings up age because she thinks they want her “youth”? She’s so dumb I can’t EVEN!! I guess she thinks since she shops at Forever21 that she really is Forever21?? Sit your 43 year old ass down and STFU!
    Why does Brandi always want to PROVE something? She stopped drinking for 21 days to PROVE to the other women that she can? Do they care? Does anyone care? She went on CA to PROVE she could act like a professional? Why the need to PROVE? It’s so weird. She also talks about Yolanda “taking her under her wing”…why does a grown ass woman need to be taken under anyone’s wing? She not a young naive wounded bird she’s a damn grown up with children!!! She don’t need a wing she needs to cut the shit and grow the F up!!

    • T-Rex says:

      Jnntj, although I truly dislike VileKyleLookatMEMEMEMEME! It was not HER on national TV that did the following regarding SpaceCadetDrugAddictAlcoholicKim :
      1. Officially OUTED the fact to a non-cast member and the world that she took a very strong cancer drug that was not prescribed to her
      2. Stated on Television that if she knew that folks were outing her, would possibly commit suicide!
      3. Stated on National Television that no one had any IDEA of the full extent of her condition and/or addiction.
      4. Has been discussing the issues and such with not just one or two castmembers but again the entire watching world.
      5. Stated on Television that YES her friend has issues that she is NOT dealing with,

      Nope these honors go to her new BFF THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMoronSTFUBrandi. I hope that SpaceCadetDrugAddictAlcoholicKim is just thrilled that she is outing all this information, however she is so addled by the drugs and such, she will probably continue to blame VileKyleLookatMEMEMEMEME , and say she never heard the above, even though it’s on tape and was shown on national television.

      I do though have ONE issue, I don’t have anyone with substance abuse issues in my family, but I know someone that does and I asked do they know their “family members” AA Sponsor and they said yes. I asked had you ever called the Sponsor and they said they have in the past, and that the Sponsor wouldn’t give them any information about their family member at all, other than to tell them if they thought their family member was once again using to direct them to Al-Anon, and to actually confront the family member over the issues, and that they would be there to help in an intervention if they thought one was necessary. They also approve that a family member should contact them if they thought their loved one was using and needed help. SO, why doesn’t anyone even know if SpaceCadetDrugAddictAlcoholicKim has a sponsor, goes to meetings, etc. Just asking/

      • not THAT Jill says:

        I think Kyle knows more than she’s saying about Kim and whatever program she’s supposed to be in -but we did see Kim say that when she got out of rehab 3 years ago she told Kyle to back off and not be so involved in her sobriety. What Kim really meant was ” be involved but keep your mouth shit about my relapse and then I will tell everyone you aren’t there for me”
        I have a very close family member that has been in AA for years and I have no idea who his sponsor is-all I know is what he shares. How much he shares is up to him. I don’t know if he goes to meetings weekly daily monthly or never-it’s his recovery and his responsibility. We did have a discussion years ago-after a rehab stint-about how involved or not involved he wanted us to be and he said he would let us know when we were needed. We talk about his sobriety and how great his new life is but none of us are involved with his AA program or his AA people-to him it’s private and seperate.

        • T-Rex says:

          Again, another agree to disagree situation! Sorry she is wrong, and if she doesn’t want the shit on tv and really does know about it, takes two words to the cast to say STFU we got it handled.

          • not THAT Jill says:

            T-Rex..who is wrong? Kyle? Kim? Who doesn’t want this shit on TV?
            I think Kyle just says as little as possible because she’s trying to avoid the wrath of Kim-Kim can be a nasty bitch!!

        • Kansas Girl says:

          I was so missing our Nurse Nancy while watching this episode. (Anyone in contact with George? Hope he’s doing well.) As I remember, Nancy concluded that Kim got dried out, but was NOT in a program that would be helpful to her. (Do I remember wrong?)

          • TexasTart says:

            Hi Kansas, that is correct. MookiesMom was the only person I was aware of that had contact with George.

      • I think it’s because she really doesn’t have any close friends who care enough to find out, or she stonewalls them if they do.

        The people who would know are Kathy and Kyle, and her kids. I’m sure they DO know but will not discuss anything in front of the camera.

        IMHO, Kyle is actually a very direct person. It’s only in discussing Kim and her myriad of issues that she becomes vague and confused. Even her body language, the pursing if her lips, the crossed arms, the noncommittal murmers that can be interpreted any which way…

      • I like how you picked each of Brandi’s offenses here. Its is just gross and so very sad that Kim doesn’t not see that this is not how a FRIEND behaves. This is how an attention seeking whore.
        As for the sponsor, I would not be surprised if Kim was overly secretive about all that being that she doesn’t want anyone checking up on her and if she shared that info, Kyle or Kathy or her kids to contact her sponsor to spill the beans. I think Kyle, Kathy and Kids need their asses in Al Anon AND they need to learn about tough love. I watch this every week and instead of just laughing at the ridiculousness of the whole show, I am nervous and afraid for the life of one of the cast members….kinda makes me miss Jersey! OH SHIT, I went there!

        • LOL! Totes agree!

          The only time I ever as afraid for someone on RHONJ was with Danny -A punk is a punk is a Manzo- Provenzano, and he was such a cartoon character that I wasn’t even really afraid.

      • Powell says:

        T-Rex I said before we’ve never seen her go to a meeting or mention she went to a meeting. Her 2nd season she had a sponsor that came to her house I think twice but that’s all we’ve seen of her professional help.

      • Foxymel(Mel) says:

        Hi T-Rexie, I hope you’re feeling well today.

        Thanks for summarizing ALL of the things Brandi has said on T.V. about Kim, her BFF.
        I truly think at this point that Kim has said too much to Brandi that it would serve Kim right to just not disagree with her. After all, she did point out the embarrassing ordeal about Kim going poo poo on her pillow. Same goes with Yo. Keep this crazy bitch at arm’s length. In my honest opinion, I think Kim is enjoying being talked about because it puts her in the spotlight in some sick way.

      • mrs peabody says:

        She doesn’t have one that’s why.

    • Powell says:

      JNNTJ didn’t she crack you up when she and Kyle were in the limo and she said something to the affect Bobble doesn’t know all the times Kyle has helped her? Well DAMMIT you told your PT for tv BFF that Kyle isn’t there for you. 💡 you dimwit you didn’t tell Bobble Kyle has helped you in any way, so Bobble ran with it. When Bobble was yelling at Kyle at Eileen’s Kim did NOT defend her sister. Bobble has been yelling to Kyle she’s never been there for Kim. UGH!!!

      • Shiny says:

        Kim has been telling Bobble that Kyle isn’t there for her (at 2 a.m., how many sisters would be repeatedly?). And whenever Bobble then overstates how badly Kim and Kyle get along, Kim never corrects her because 1) little Kimmy doesn’t like confrontation (as she said so many times) and therefore she doesn’t disagree with what people say (except when it suits her), and 2) Little Kimmy gets a lift from Brandi’s sympathy about poor little Kimmy being all alone and big girl will take care of poor little victim Kimmy….

        Kim probably thinks her problem was alcohol only? She is convinced pills don’t count when she is an alcoholic….that means she isn’t in counseling of any kind or isn’t truthful there.

        • Foxymel(Mel) says:

          Great points, Shiny! 🙂

        • Powell says:

          Yeah I agree. Regarding Kim thinking pills don’t count, she probably doesn’t remember what she said to Lisa in Paris as they showed last night. Lisa mistakenly asked if she’d taken a sleeping pill and Kim went ballistic saying Lisa should know she can’t take anything unless it’s prescribed.

  5. T-Rex says:

    Something interesting to note, I have been trying to find out where Monty Brinson’s money comes from, you know what mysterious shopping chain he hails from, and so far can’t find the info. HOWEVER, I did come across some very interesting other information, Mr. Monty and Rick Hilton are buddy-buddies, like BFF’s, and have been for many, many years, and I may have read this wrong, but it says that SpacecadetDrugAddictAlcoholicKim met him via interaction with the Hilton’s. They got married cause she got preggers, and she left him for the gentleman that was murdered, not sure if this is true but the timing does fit.

  6. Awesome blogs!! Happy hump day everybody.

  7. Orson says:

    Re: The Brandi and Jennifer conversation… it sounded to me like Jennifer asked the right questions. It’s a shame Brandi won’t tell Kyle or Kim that she’s also concerned about Kim’s condition.

    Brandi dismantling LVP’s flower decorations. Heck, let her have a souvenir. It’s not like she’s ever going to see the inside of any of LVP’s businesses again, right? Oh, and how was it there were no thorns when Braindead, I mean Brandi, plucked the rose from the arrangement and tucked it behind her ear, but when Lisa V removed it there were thorns? As for LVP insisting Brandi sing “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word” to her, well, that seems really out of character to me. And it just struck me, after offering to perform cunnilingus on Lisa V to show she’s sorry, I’d have thought Brandi would have felt relieved that all LVP wanted was a certain song sung to her. Wimmen! I’ll never understand ’em! They should come with instruction manuals. 😉

    Warning: I feel another screed coming upon me. I think I’d better do it on notepad first. Where the h*ck did I put my soap box anyway?

  8. boston02127 says:

    Great blogs! Thanks.

  9. Orson says:

    Okay, I gave you all fair warning.

    Orson Speaks!

    True Confession: I don’t love Oprah.

    I’ll wait for the boos and catcalls to die down.

    :: ducking as the rotten fruit and veggies fly by ::

    And it’s sort of related to what’s going on here.

    It was quite a few years ago when I lost any respect for her. Before then, she was the daytime talk sweetheart and savior. Okay, there was the live interview with Michael Jackson and his then wife Lisa Marie Presley. I expected a real interview, not Oprah gushing over being in the same room with MJ. But I figured this was left over from being with her teen idol girlish stuff. And maybe a Black thing, I don’t know. I’d probably act like a fool too if I was supposed to interview any of my guitar idols.

    But then on her regular show, she blew it for me. As her guests, she had a family that was torn apart by one member’s crack addiction. The interviews started with a sister blaming herself for enabling her sister’s addiction by giving her money to help pay her rent and utilities which got blown on crack. Then there was another sister who blamed herself for enabling her sister by letting the addicted sister’s son stay at her place and taking care of him for the addicted sister. And the show continued with the mother apologizing for giving the addict money for food which the addict spent on crack instead. And son of the addict taking some blame for his share of enabling the addict by doing or not doing something or other. Finally, they put the addict on for her interview. Where she said it wasn’t her fault, it was her addiction that had torn her family’s lives apart. It was the addiction’s fault and she was just it’s powerless victim.


    So, it was everyone’s fault for enabling her addiction but the person actually firing up the crack pipe was a blameless innocent? She wasn’t responsible for anything? I didn’t buy that for a minute and when Oprah didn’t contest that and just let it go and made supportive, sympathetic noises, I just lost every bit of respect for her.

    So, I’m not all that sympathetic toward Kim. If she wants to live her life in a drug or alcohol induced cloud it’s no skin off my t*sh. I don’t live anywhere near Beverly Hills, so I don’t have to worry about her getting stoned and injuring me in a car accident. And I’m losing sympathy towards Kyle too. She needs a lot of therapy herself but won’t admit it.

    Orson has Spoken!

    and now Orson makes a quick dash to the exit before you girls get the torches and farm implements out to chase me down and smite me

    • I will not shoot you!
      I was a much bigger fan of Oprah in the 80’s and 90’s. It was a ritual in my house. We watched Oprah every day from 4-5 while my mom made dinner and we talked about the various topics. I learned a LOT from Oprah. Then the Celebrity Interviews began and she sucked up to all of them so much and stopped doing what I tuned in for. Sigh.

    • jezzibel says:

      never been a fan of Oprah, I got really fed up one day I was driving and they kept playing this radio ad for her show and it was about a woman that had been set on fire by an angry ex-something or other, and they kept playing the 911 call and you could hear the woman screaming in the background of the 911 call..the various radio stations played this ad pretty much on every freakin ad break.
      I’ve managed to go almost all of my life without actually seeing a whole episode of her show.
      Until Kim decides she is done and wants to quit with pills & booze and be sober for real, I have no patience or sympathy for her, because until she makes that decision all of the hand wringing, the emotional pleading, and the speculation from her family and friends won’t change a damn thing. She’s pissy and defensive about people trying to talk to her about her sobriety, because while she is not drinking anymore, she still not sober. Whats the phrase the guilty flee where none persue.

    • Itsnotreality says:

      I agree with you about everything especially the not liking Oprah part. When I really started paying attention to Oprah and how she acts I was just so put off by her. I never saw her show before she became what she is today so I don’t know if it was the the fame and money that got to her head or what. I washed this clip of her being asked by someone what was a good gift or how much to spend on a gift or something like that( I dont remember exactly) and she said something that cost like $100.00. The man couldn’t afford that and she was shocked. So Orson I guess I am running with ya.
      I also don’t love the Queen.

    • Well.

      I like Oprah. Always have.


      Addiction treatment has changed significantly since the 80’s & 90’s. IMHO- crack had a lot to do with the change in attitude.

      If you take a step back and look at the patterns of RHOBH regarding how others treat Kim- there really is no general consensus among the cast (and probably producers) on how to handle Kim’s addiction.

      And while Kim’s problems and challenges do not affect me directly- IMHO- they are a microcosm of our larger society.

      If Kim- an attractive, healthy, charming, quasi famous,wealthy woman, with every resource available to her- cannot get a handle on this, how then do we expect a homeless crack head to?

      Even this blog has been divided at times regarding Kim’s addiction. Her story has sparked conversations on personal experiences here, and on other bogs I frequent.

      While I personally, am getting sick of hearing about it- it hits close to home for allot of people.

    • Shiny says:

      No torch in my hand – Oprah had a good sense of how to keep her show on TV, but she never got deep enough into any topic to satisfy me, so I rarely watched – surface skimming over and over. And her advice was philosophies that were fine but nothing particularly new or deep. I checked out long before she became so rich.

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      I just threw a brick at you. Hope it didn’t hurt too badly. 🙂

    • mrs peabody says:

      I was a one time a fan of Oprah’s too before I figured out she just liked to hear herself talk. Stopped watching her years before she went off the air.

      • mm in oc says:

        I hate Oprah. Used to love her when she was chubby and did sensationalistic TV. She basically stole Donahues audience. I thought back then good for her. But once she got used to the crazy money she thought she was too high class for all the crazy people on her shows. She thought people wanted to watch her have lunch with maya Angelou. Boring! The final straw was while she was making that crap movie Beloved she had the audacity to say that she now knew what it felt like to be a slave. How can anyone take her seriously after that bs statement. Its an insult to everyone and in particular real slaves. Not rich people pretending to be a slave for a few hours a day.

    • Barb (Just wondering in Jersey) says:

      I’m with you Orson. Can’t take O anymore. I used to like her but not for years now.

      I used to attend AA meetings with my former fiance in support of his sobriety and to learn more about alcoholism. My over-riding observation was they do not ever accept responsibility for any of their actions. It is always someone else’s fault.

    • Powell says:

      Thks for the latest installment. “Orson Speaks” is gaining in popularity. 🙂

  10. Powell says:

    Good afternoon everyone. I hope you all are well. I’m looking forward to reading when I get home. I didn’t watch it all since I was watching 3 different shows. 🙂 But watching Kim is like you watched a different epi from what she remembers. I guess it’s been like that the last three epis.
    Bobble and Jennifer cracked me up. Jennifer can recognize addiction in Kim. HA!! Well why the hell not her BFF? 🙄
    Mmmm hmmmm. I didn’t think so. 😏
    Our girl Boston had a very good tweet that I responded to. ITA.

    • sparklemuffy says:

      Jennifer has always been an addiction specialist– from Brandi’s first season on the show– Brandi was instrumental in J’s getting help. I don’t watch BH anymore, but during the Traiylor fiasco when Brandi asked Traiylor to leave they discussed addiction etc.

  11. designernailsdiana says:

    Orson I agree that a big celebrity interviewer like Oprah should have made that crack addict responsible for her own addiction. Dr. Phil calls them out on their behavior. I don’t always agree with him, but he does handle the liars well. I’m just tired of his advertising for his wife and son’s businesses, but I guess you can use your celebrity for helping support your families businesses as well.
    Kim needs to admit she relapsed. Brandi needs to admit she is an addict too and get help. The entire cast needs to know they do not need to enable them by putting up with bad behavior they’d never allow from their own children.
    My 3 yr old grandson knows not to take apart Grandma’s plants or pretty flower arrangements yet that 43 yr old brainless twit can’t leave flowers alone at a BIRTHDAY party? Oh paleez it’s all for attention and when it’s ignored she will lose interest in acting like that. rewarding her for it (attention) only spurs her on to do it over and over again. Yoyo shoulda kicked her ass out for saying the daughter was an alcoholic. My best friend stopped dating a guy who called her son an asshole. Yes her 16 yr old son! Bad manners is never acceptable from grown ups. You deserve what you tolerate so don’t be whining about it later if you don’t curtail it immediately.
    I sure do like Eileen (that tramp I love) and Lisa R. (lips for truth not lies).
    Thanks Starzy for watching for me and many others.

    • Powell says:

      Diana I never thought of it but Kim is trying to make her castmates be enablers but The Lisa’s *& Eileen want no part of it. Kim wants everyone to ignore the elephant in the room, as Lisa R said and that’s not fair.

  12. Exit4 says:

    Namaste bringing up NJ reminded me of something. On the Melissa is a stripper finale-the cast was sitting at the table constantly on their phones. It came out later that it was production giving instructions. They didn’t know what was happening-but they were being told what to do-not to get up, someone was coming to the table Etc.

    So, at poker night-when things started going haywire-kyle gets up and heads to the bathroom. You see her on her phone. I figured she was calling Monty-or one of Kim’s kids. Maybe-she was calling the production staff. There’s PAs there at filming. Whether to find out what’s going on or to get them to stop filming until they can find out? Obviously, I don’t know if this even happened-but I wonder. She knows theyll never air the conversation. Instead, Kim headed to the bathroom. Even Brandi tried to get them to cut to no avail. It’s still Kims fault-she knew she was going to film and took something-but there could be manipulation here and not in a good way.

    • I’m not following you.

      -How did Kyle know they’d never air the conversation? Do you mean the conversation with subtitles that Kim took Monty’s pain pills?

      -Or was that another episode? ( Lordy, I am getting all the whispered Kim addiction stories confused)

      -Is a PA a production associate? Did we see them there?

      -When did Brandi try to get them to stop filming?

      -I don’t think I was drinking wine that night… But I don’t remember any if this…

      • Exit4 says:

        Sorry! Lol. PA is production assistant, yes. There’s always one or more on site. They oversee everything.

        On the poker night episode-when things started getting heated at the table, Brandi makes a gesture as if she wanted the cameras to cut. I didn’t notice-but a bunch of people here did-so I am taking their word for it. Then kyle gets up and goes into the bathroom. You see her on her phone as she’s shutting the door. I wonder If she was calling the PA. If kyle did get a PA on the phone, to sort out what’s going on with kim, they won’t air that conversation-they don’t like to break the fourth wall. Although they have done it before, they generally don’t. Soon after, kim follows kyle to the bathroom and the rest is history!

        It’s speculation on my part-but Thays what we do!

        • Hmmm…seems plausible enough, but didn’t really work did it- I mean they still filmed everything right?

          Unless, this was the EDITED version and what got cut was much much worse than we saw.

          Maybe Kyle was calling a lawyer to get offa the show. Or maybe her husband, just to make sure he wasn’t with a cocktail waitress or something. Or maybe Big Kathy.

          Sure as heck wasn’t her AlAnon sponser.

          • Exit4 says:

            lol. No it didn’t work! I was just wondering if she was possibly trying to get as little of this shown as possible.

            I only thought of it because I remembered that jersey fiasco-where they were all aware of a set up-just not who it was. Richie and joey Gorga were right next door-waiting in the wings!

            • Right.

              I really wouldn’t put anything past Bravo. After the cavalier (IMHO) way they treated Russell’s suicide/murder/untimely demise, what’s milking a drug addict for a storyline?

              I wonder

  13. shamrockblonde says:

    thank you for the blogs – not an Oprah fan either – at one point in time, I heard her say one thing that stuck with me, and honestly, I am not sure if it was her quote, or if she was repeating it – she said, “if you are not part of the solution, then you are part of the problem” – Kim needs to be off the show and Monty needs to be cared for elsewhere – doing that under normal circumstances must be an emotional roller coaster, but for someone like Kim, it could literally be deadly – I am certain that her children are probably very scared watching all of this on tv – remember when her daughter went off to college? She was speaking with Kim as though she was the adult and Kim was the child – and for the record, my sister and I have not had a major fight since we were kids, but I can tell you that if we were furious with each other, and someone else started talking smack about one of us, the other would deck that person in a NY minute – our argument would continue, but that outsider – would be OUT – and all Bobble does is prove that she is an ignorant insecure, trashy individual – her comments about age come from her beginning to realize that her looks really WON’T always be there, and right now that is all that she is – someone to look at – like a beautiful empty vase –

    as for Vanderpump Rules – Jax is a walking hormone – and very much a male Brandi –

    I loved the surprise party –

  14. not THAT Jill says:

    I just saw on Facebook that Brandi said the dress she wore was not the same as Yolanda’s…Brandi FB writer must not have watched the show last night????

    • Shiny says:

      Must mean that hers was the knock-off? Actually it looked better on Yo – neck wasn’t quite as high/tight to her neck

      • Brandi is so so thin, like stick thin, but the dress made her look like she had a little pot belly- I didn’t like the fit on her at all.

        Yo looked elegant and relaxed. Like she was wearing the dress not the dress was wearing her.

  15. Foxymel(Mel) says:

    Thank you to our rock stars, Starzy and HH for such wonderful blogs. I love both shows and I love reading your blogs even more. No joke–it’s what I look forward to. 🙂

    So I’ve come to the point that if Kyle truly believes that Kim has fallen back to old habits, that she should make an executive decision. Explain to the producers of the show that she will no longer be filming with Kim until she gets help. Let Kim know that she will have to cease contact with her until she gets help(of course that she’ll support her with that).No more enabling by sitting by and watching this train wreck continue.
    I really enjoyed this episode of BH and can’t wait to see why Brandi slaps Lisa.
    One thing about Vanderpump Rules, I can’t believe how horrible that wedding coordinator was, if you really even want to call her that. More like a saboteur. I think I would’ve thrown her out of the party. I had a very modest wedding but let me tell you that the Manager at the country club that I got married at told me as I arrived early at the venue. He pulled me aside and grabbed both of my shoulders to let me know that this was going to be the best day of my life and he was going to make sure of it. Well guess what? He did. First, He gave me a tequila shot to calm my nerves. then, the ceremony started at 11:30am sharp and the late guests had to wait until the ceremony was finished to enter the reception. He was like a dark shadow–making sure everything was perfect.

    • mrs peabody says:

      I think Kyle needs to cut all ties with Kim for at least a year or maybe more and get counseling for herself as she has just as she also is addicted only it’s not drugs or alcohol it’s Kim. Kyle needs to understand why she keeps covering for Kim and trying to help her. It comes to a point when Kyle needs to help herself and stop worrying about Kim. Whatever is going to happen to Kim is going to happen and she is the only one that can change that. My first husband was an alcoholic and it came down to my marriage or my sanity and I chose my sanity as I had 2 small children to raise. Kyle needs to make a choice between her life and Kim’s problems and she still has children at home to raise. You have to wonder what her husband and mother n law really think about this crap with Kim all the time. As hard as it will be on Kyle she needs to cut lose of Kim and not look back.

      • Foxymel(Mel) says:

        I’m sorry to hear about your first husband.

        I do agree that she has to distance herself from Kim so she she hits her rock bottom and KIM decides to get help for herself. I forgot the Mauricio’s mom is a shrink. Hmm

        • Exit4 says:

          I think she’s afraid that rock bottom will be dead. That’s why kyle keeps trying. No matter how many times kyle hears it’s kims fault, it’s kim choice-if something awful happens kyle would feel guilty for the rest of her life and she cant handle that. Plus, kims kids-what do they expect from their aunt? She’s proabably afraid they’ll blame her too. I think that’s why a lot of families continue to enable even when they know better-the guilt and the fear of more guilt. It’s sad.

          • Foxymel(Mel) says:

            I get your point Exit, but then Kim would be taking a part of Kyle’s life in a way to always be dragging her down. I get that she needs support, but at what point does kyle start to realize that maybe the best thing for Kim is to distance herself from her so that she can getthe appropriate help(rock bottom).OMIB posted above mentioning that Kim has every possible resource available to her and that’s something she’s taking for granted when there’s so many people with no means that perhaps need a hand. It’s a very sticky situation but at what point will Kyle say, it’s enough? I’m hoping that Kyle has had a strong conversation with Kim’s kids and family so that they’re aware that she’s offered, Kim help, doesn’t want it and she needs to move on.

          • T-Rex says:

            See that is exactly the problem, you can’t hit rock bottom if everyone keeps giving you some sort of safety net to keep you from it. She needs to really truly hit bottom, I think everyone placating her and not calling her on her lies and bullshit is why she continues to profess she is sober, when she clearly isn’t

  16. Shiny says:

    Thanks Starzy for wonderful blog – I watch the show mainly so I can fully enjoy your blog.

      I don’t know why tampax hasn’t jumped on this. What a great print campaign-a drunk Brandi with her string hanging out. “Bobbles wobbles but the tampon hangs down”. >>>apologies to the weebles.

  18. not THAT Jill says:

    The people on twitter are killing me today with all their Kim talk! How can anyone be using Kim for a stupid storyline? They would have to be privy to the fact that Kim was going to relapse-did anyone look like they weren’t surprised when Kim started acting all high and shit in the car and at the poker game?? How can this be a storyline for anyone unless they knew it was going to happen?? I can’t even say it’s Brandi’s storyline because I think she was as surprised as everyone else by Kim’s relapse! This isn’t their storyline-it’s something that actually happened while filming and not something anyone set up-unless Kim herself relapsed for a storyline but that’s just too crazy…even for Kim!!

    • I haven’t seen the twatter about Kim but I have seen it on other blogs.

      I think it’s a “happy” accident and Brandi and Kim are running with it.

      I think the producers are too. Because it’s just way too much air time devoted to it.

    • Exit4 says:

      OMG Jill it’s so ridiculous! Brandi and Kim were ride or die even before filming! Some of this happened before the cameras even rolled-6 months theyve been friend right? That’s what they’re saying on camera? Is it the Brandi fans on that bandwagon?

  19. lila1star says:

    great job! I am not a fan of Oprah either–there I said it! lol
    KIM–knows exactly what she is doing. She knows she has relapsed if she was ever even completely sober. She knows what hell she puts Kyle and family through and doesn’t care. Brandi simply serves Kim’s purpose for now and nothing more as Kim is not capable of real friendship.

    Kyle knows too and I imagine she will ignore it for as long as she can because it has been a life long battle that she can not win but I wish she would get help for herself but given the way they have been raised the roller coaster ride is the only way she will deal with it.
    The only sister who has any clout with Kim is Kathy and even she has little but Kathy wants no part of it.

    The other folks who can do something is Bravo and I expect them to act or they are going to loose more viewers who like me are sick to death of this story arc. If Kim wants people to mind there own bees wax–then get off TV!
    Lisa R and Eileen mean well but it really is not theirs or anyone’s responsibility except Kim and to an extent Bravo. Bravo can lay down the law where Kim is concerned.

    Now this is me once again walking away from this subject–Lord I hope 🙂
    If you google Big Kathy there is a video of her and Kim after Big Kathy was DX with breast cancer which took her life.
    Kim also fooled around with the uber wealthy Davis while engaged to Monty whom she met via her sister Kathy. Kim chose Monty even though mom wanted Davis.

    Kyle has been the family care taker since childhood –a role she will be hard pressed to get over. She tossed her mothers boyfriends out of her house trying to protect her father the only half decent influence in her their lives. There is always one in every dysfunctional family…………
    yes yes–im done!

    • mrs peabody says:

      like I said Kyle needs to cut Kim out of her life and get counseling for herself.

    • LILA you brought up a bit of what I was discussing with JILL yesterday – I feel like Bravo will be held responsible for keeping this addict on TV.

      Kim has to take care of herself (she has $$$$$?) , however I still cringe at bravo having tbeir graphics department do big bold beautiful signs for commercials for BH saying “KIMTERVENTION!” —

      Kim is responsible for Kim. But Bravo, evolution, and Andy (JILL>>>Oxford comma 😉) need to be …..careful …..👣👣

        Hey Chismosita!
        I saw your post last night about pups. I agree with you, no way we’d get a small dog because I’d be afraid that the dog might snap at my kids or that my 2yr old might throw the pup across the room.

        Ooommygooodess… It’s going to get in the 30’s tonight with wind chills possibly hitting the 20’s! I’m considering not sending my son to school tomorrow. Lol
        It was damn near 85degrees yesterday. I had to scramble for some gloves in my closet because I haven’t had to use them much down here. How do you’ll do it?

        In regards to Kim, offer her some money to get herself a 90 day rehab and no more BH. They’ve got the money. I’d do it for my sister in a heartbeat if I had the means.

  21. TexasTart says:

    VPR – Thank HydrangeaHussy and for the pics from Mardi Gras! I’ve already talked about VPR last night, so not to repeat any of that….but I have more to say. Surprise, surprise. 😉 This was a very appropriately named episode. I’m still floored Tom Schwartz thought that was a good idea and at a wedding. Now if he proposed to her at the wedding, that would have been cool. But what does a ring on a string mean? That he is stringing her along for a much longer wait? [eyeroll]

    Setting aside the fact that Scheana probably got what she paid for in a wedding planner – all of that was not the wedding planners fault. And the wedding planner didn’t make the wedding party late to the ceremony. They appear to be late arrivals to the reception as well based on the fact it was night. I can’t believe she thought the timeframe would work. I’m going to be critical and say wedding photography should be done before the wedding or kept at a 20 minute minimum after the ceremony because guests can not be expected to wait an hour or however long they took, yeah, people leave. And Scheana, almost no one gets to eat their food at a big affair or dance all they wanted, because guests want to talk to you, want to photograph you and wish you well. I don’t know why I’m ranting on this, it appeared she had a very nice wedding it was her expectations for perfection were out of line. Did y’all see her Dad dancing like a fool on the dance floor?! LOL

    I never ever liked James, he makes me cringe and you could tell he was drunk before the sun went down because his face was crimson red and his beady eyes were glassed over. Too bad someone didn’t escort him home earlier, hello Kristen. That’s so immature to go to an event like that and chug alcohol, hello Jax, and like James did until he makes no sense becoming a nuisance and liability.

  22. TexasTart says:

    Beverly Hills – Stars thanks for making it fun to read with jewels like “Brandi doesn’t wear enough clothes to do a laundry folding scene with Kim.” and “I think Brandi is a wolf in cheap clothing.” ROTFL She does have the Xanax backwards. We need the Xanax! I see you are forced to yell at Kim, like Namaste has to at times in her blog too. It’s so exasperating, right?! I didn’t notice Brandi drank through the toast, good grief. I thought she walked out when they called for a toast, so I was confused there, but it’s still rude she left before the toast-e spoke! So rude.

    As a long time fan of Fashion Police, the ‘Bitch stole my look’ title on the photo is perfect! ha ha Has anyone speculated on how that happened, could it have been as innocent as Yo and B shopped together (I know I saw some photo on twitter, the yellow pants one, lol) anyway, so they liked the same dress, got different colors and no one thought to tell the other they were wearing theirs to this event. Who cares, I just thought it was hilarious!

    I’m not in the mood for this Kim bullshit any more because Kim clearly does not want help and everyone talking to her is wasting their time because all she’s “blah, blah, blah, blah, been there done that.” Love you LisaR and Eileen, but drop the trying to help act. Ladies, you have a show to do, so get Kim ready for her close up and remember THE SHOW MUST GO ON!

    I am listening to my local news and Vanilla Ice has been arrested for stealing from a home that was next to the one he was renovating. I really liked him on his diy network show and because he does a lot of local charity work. I hope it’s not true and that maybe one of his workers or employees are the ones who actually commited the robbery.

    • I saw that too. They’re saying it was him. But the home was vacant so he thought it was abandoned.

      Evidently he didn’t learn after stealing from Queen.

    Or do kyle and Morris get stuck helping her ???

    Hello Stassi.

  29. Ok, I just rewatched last night’s episode. A few observations:
    – Someone mentioned it last night and totally agree that Splits looks great in car going to and at Eileen’s, but in the THs she needs to lay off the botox. First off when she is wearing the sparkly pink, lighting is too hard and she looks washed out and second when she is wearing the purple with the rhinestones her forehead can’t move.
    – I really looked for Bobble drinking at Lisa’s surprise party and just didn’t see it. When she is at the bar I see her with a highball glass that looks like ice water and she even mentions cleanse. At the table there is a glass of rosa but it is on the side and I think it is Lip’s glass since she sat to Bobble’s right. I never saw her drink from the wine glass.
    – Interesting how people sat – Splits to the left of Lisa, Eileen to left of Splits – their husbands across from them. Lemons across from Pump with Kathy’s shiny face next to her, Lance’s husband next to shiny face – Rambles and Bobble were a fair way down and how did Lips get stuck next to them – although Kevin, party planner, was next to her and she did spend time with him when Lisa got star in Palm Springs.
    – It was a rose in Brandi’s hair, but I don’t think it was a thorn that caused the pain, I think it was tucked into her gold hairband and it pulled that when Pump plucked out the rose.
    – I wish they would have spent longer with the dogs playing out front and Lip’s arriving at Pump’s place. I would be happy to just watch them frolic with dogs instead of the addiction stuff.
    – I don’t think it is Eileen’s and Lip’s place to do an intervention, but with that being said I think Eileen truly really feels morally obligated to do something after witnessing Kim’s behavior on multiple occasions. So far she has called a spade a spade so I am willing to give her a pass. Ok, and don’t stone me on this one, I do like Lips, but I do think she is a little bit of a shit stirrer and is very conscious of her “storyline”. That doesn’t mean she isn’t coming from a good place, but she herself has said she will do just about anything for money and to stay relevant so I want to see where she takes this before I really pass judgement on her Kim interaction.

    • Well. Regarding Lisa R. While I like her very much, she seems very…conscious of the way the game is played.

      She kisses Lisa VP’s ass, not becaus she likes her, IMHO, but because Lisa is a huge fan favorite.

      She’s carefully studied the players and is aligning herself with the strongest ones, while creating a storyline by getting involved to “help” the weakest ones.

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

      Eileen is coming from a place of trying to get the sisters back together. The Lisas have known each other for years. I love watching those two together.

    Whether you call it a sponsor or a counselor. Kim should have someone to call from whatever program she went thru. I think that is what LR and ED are trying to get her to say- does she have someone……

    • TexasTart says:

      I agree. If Kim had one, you would think she would have volunteered that information, if anything to get people off her back.

      • Powell says:

        Right. I’m having doubts that she even went to AA at all. Does she have any chips? Has she done the atonement part?

        • IMHO, she drank and did drugs. Then she stopped drinking and just did drugs.

          So she thinks she’s sober.

          Now she’s doing ALOT of drugs but still thinks she’s sober because she’s not drinking.

          Why atone if your “sober”?

    It’s so cold in Minnesota my dog won’t go poo. She quickly pees, but no poo. I feel so bad for her that I’ve shut every door to every room with rugs or carpeting. Yeah I don’t trust her to hold it until she goes on her walk this afternoon. My Pearly Girl is such a sweetie and such a good girl that I hate to get upset with her. She truly is a royal Pekingese. She’s 6 years old now and done being the puppy mill Mama. She gets to live a pampered life with Grandpa (My 83 yr old Dad) who spoils her with Chex mix, pizza, toast with peanut butter and pancakes. If he eats it he shares it with her. No amount of chastisement stops him. He knows potatoes and chocolate are bad for dogs so she gets none of those.
    I’m going to make her a special raised bed with lots of fluffy stuffing for her to sleep like a princess.

        I don’t think there’s anything wrong w/it. I think it’s her endearing way w/her kids. I also think it’s from her culture or how she was brought up being w/her mom.

      • Orson says:

        But admitting to herself that she has adult children would be admitting that she’s no longer the hot young model she once was.

      • California35 says:

        I agree, i try not to say anything about though, now that you have I want to add that for me it sounds even more unecessary because she doesn’t seem to me like a sweet mom. Just those words are sweet, but not the rest. I hope i make sense 😋

        • I think it’s going to have to stop at some time – it’s a bit odd, however I like the idea of her showing being a loving mommy; because she sure as FU@k is showing love to her ailing mom in Holland of WHOM SHE HAS THE $$$ and leisure time (only 1 child back at home, Mo is there)- to go VISIT. N–O–T

          I have a huge problem with this. Huge.

          • Foxymel(Mel) says:

            Yo’s got a huge house, why not have mom move in with her and they can take care of each other? Makes no sense.

            Did you see that I was joking the other day? It’s was 38 degrees out this morning!! 😉

    Does anyone know if Yolanda will be attending the reunion or not?

  56. Exit4 says:

    Just read that brandis bestie Kim is mad at her! This came from brandis mouth. It will not be a good day for Brandi!

    • serenanyc says:

      Kim is mad at anyone who doesn’t do exactly what Kim wants them to!

    • mrs peabody says:

      That should make for an interesting reunion.

      • not THAT Jill says:

        Kim is mad about all the stuff Brandi said on the show and Brandi is blaming EDITING!! Come on now-we all know about editing but what comes out of their mouths is on them-we heard what Brandi said to Lisa R-about Kim taking pills and the patch thing-and we saw Brandi talk to Jennifer on the beach about Kim-how can Brandi blame editing?
        Brandi also said that if she didn’t go to the reunion Lisa V would talk about her dogs and Kyle would talk about all her vacations…she’s a dumbass and I wish she would not show up-but she’s a fame whore so we know she wouldn’t miss her time on TV
        She also said she broke up with JR b/c someone came up to her and asked if she was screwing Trump-she was mad that JR didn’t knock the guys teeth out…is she in high school???? (JR asked Brandi if it was true…hahahahahaha)

        • Powell says:

          The reunion will be so much fun if she doesn’t go.

        • Foxymel(Mel) says:

          You really think Kim would go against Brandi? It truly would be interesting because Kim can then victimize herself some more and draw all of the negative attention to Brandi. Hmm interesting…

        • California35 says:

          Wow! She finally saw it!! I had wondered why Brandi gets a pass for talking all of that about Kim. Regardless of why she is saying those things, as a concern friend or not. Since Kim Doesn’t like that coming from anyone, or a place of love or not. She takes it really bad. Now if she gets mad at Brandi also, then it will be consistent. By the way, perfect timing also, right before reunion.

        • mrs peabody says:

          You know I kind of wondered what Kim’s reaction was going to be in real life when she saw those scenes of Brandi talking about her addiction since she got so mad at Kyle for saying anything on camera. As far as JR not knocking the guys teeth out, come on even high school girls aren’t that immature.

      • Orson says:

        It never occurred to me, this idea of Kim pulling a Teresa Guidice and taking on all comers at a reunion. And it would take some of the spotlight off Braindead, wouldn’t it? What do you think, LVP on the far end of the couch just enjoying the show and not being the primary target, just occasionally being tagged by some of the spaghetti Braindead will be throwing all over the place?

    • Powell says:

      Well hopefully she’s mad enough that she’ll finally defend her sister.

    • kit9 says:

      She saw the show and that it was Brandi, not Kyle, leaking all her personal probs.

    A post shared by Andy Cohen (@bravoandy) on

  62. So Lisa, Lisa R, Brandi

    Couch 2 – Kyle (doesn’t she always insist on first seat like Lisa gets?), eileen,

    Where would I put Kim.
    Next to Brandi? Move Lisa r to Kyle couch. Easier for andy to turn right or left and say Lisa and it not get confusing.

    What about Kim’s hand puppet ? 🙊

    Watching last year’s reunion. I can’t stand Yolanda 😫 She’s so condescending. She’s one backstabber lady and I don’t trust her AT ALL!

  65. not THAT Jill says:

  66. serenanyc says:

    I was thinking maybe Lisa V and Kyle would be on the same couch but the thought that I can’t imagine after years of getting the first seat by Andy that they’d be okay with that….

    I thought getting in his little audience was only MEDIA people ?????

    So if I make up some hot guy account and tweet him I’ll be allowed on?

    He’s so annoying it’s cray.

  68. VV™ says:

    When Brandi says “I have never in my life”, you can bet that’s a lie.

  69. VV™ says:

    STFU YOLANDA!!! She makes so many excuses for Brandi. She chimes in EVERY TIME Joyce criticizes Brandi.

  70. VV™ says:

    Brandi’s beef with Lisa is that Lusa hasn’t dumped and fired Scheana. Plain and simple.

  71. VV™ says:

    STFU Kyle!

    You’re just jealous always have and always will.


    • PJ says:

      I don’t think Lisa has a genuine soft spot for Kyle, Lisa just plays the game very strategically.

      • VV™ says:

        Lisa is executive producer of a very successful show VPR and she is Queen of BH. She’s being strategically with Kyle because ? 💭 …..Hmmm yeah, that’s right ( crickets ). She doesn’t need Kyle for anything. Can you give me a reason of how and why Lisa V. is being strategically with Cry Me a River Kyle AKA Thunder Thights Kyle Emoji AKA 💦💦💦💦💦

    • kit9 says:

      I can’t stand that Kyle has a soft spot for Lisa. Lisa was absolutely despicable to Kyle last season. Truly disgusting. Lisa deserved everything and more that Kyle gave her at the reunion.

      • Wow we must have watched different shows, because Kyle wasn’t so great to Lisa as I remember it. Lisa did apologize for the joke in front of Portia to Kyle at the Reunion and the only “proof” you have of Lisa and the magazines are STFU Brandi who was making the dethroning of Lisa her whole storyline last year and we have seen her lie.

        I think Kyle & Lisa should both be cautious with their friendship, but I hope they continue to work on it since they do have fun together. I wish Kyle would lay off some of the heavy make-up I think she looked much younger with lighter make-up as we saw when her and Kim were in the car going to Eileen’s for the table read.

      • PJ says:

        I don’t think either Kyle or Lisa have soft spots for one another. I think they have both been horrible to one another and they are both actresses and they are both paying parts. Right now they are in an alliance because it suits them both. But things will change because you don’t go from saying that a person is so calculating that every move is like a chess game and then all is a sudden have a soft spot for them. More like keep you friends close and your enemies closer.

  72. VV™ says:

    There it is! Yolanda was and probably still is chirping about Scheana to Brandi.

    • not THAT Jill says:

      Do you think Lisa never chirped in Brandi’s ear? That’s the HW way-if Yolanda can be blamed for saying things to Brandi why can’t Lisa? I

      • VV™ says:

        I’m specifically talking about the Scheana issue. Brandi was over it or so, she told us. It only lasted until Yolanda the chirping lemon came into the picture.

        • Exit4 says:

          I honestly don’t think it was Yolanda chirping. I think brandi is one of those people who says they’re fine with something until they decide they’re not. We’ve all met someone like that! Her fans do more chirping then Yolanda! I’d believe she’d listen to them (or let them influence her thoughts) or listen to someone outside the HWs like her weave wrangler or her gays. (Her words not mine). You have to look outside the bubble.

  73. VV™ says:

    OMG! Kyle is such an idiot!

  74. VV™ says:

    Kyle needs to get over she’s not #1 on RHOBH.


  75. VV™ says:

    Thank you Joyce! The vultures (Yofo, Brandi, Kyle, and Kim) ganged up on Lisa from the get go.

  76. HuskerHuny says:

    This is something that I could never figure out. Yolanda confesses to only having had 1/5 of the use of her brain during this time. How in the heck then, could she remember who called her/visited her while she spent 18 months in bed? I have full capacity of my brain and I forget like crazy. I find it hard to believe anything Yolo says – you can’t have it both ways. Either you’re sick or you’re well.

  77. not THAT Jill says:

    When I watch Lisa at the reunion I wonder if she’s really really smart or if she just doesn’t understand English. She doesn’t answer any direct question and she often responds to one part of a comment-usually the part that doesn’t mean anything. I don’t know if she knows she doing it or if she’s just not used to being called out on things-either way it works-she never has to admit to doing anything shady…meanwhile she’s as shady as the rest of them!

    • kit9 says:

      Lisa is the queen of redirection when she doesn’t want to answer a quesiton

      • Anne says:

        I think that Lisa probably has a very good publicist and prepares before the reunion. She is also pretty poised and doesn’t usually get visibly stressed by the questioning. I’ve been through several media training sessions for work. The pros advise you to prepare talking points (3 or 4) and stick to those during an interview. Also, they teach you to how to answer a question to emphasize your talking points, not necessarily what the questioner asks. Ronald Regan was a master at this — we watched clips from his press conferences in both of the training sessions.

        Also, Andy is not great with followup questions, so it is easier to deflect or redirect.

        You can tell that some of the other ladies work with publicists — but I think that they have trouble putting the lessons into practice. Also, I don’t know how much they actually practice answering questions ahead of time (which is important if the training is going to be effective). I had work colleagues that had an easy time putting the tips into practice – personally, I struggled with it — because I always wanted to explain too much.

    • Jill of course Lisa isn’t perfect – we have all seen that before our eyes, but shady?

      • not THAT Jill says:

        Yes shady-she does shady things and then sits back and watches it all go down.

        • I do think Bobble may have been influenced by Pump’s dislike of Cat Face Lady, but Bobble is a loose cannon so not sure if the was Lisa being strategic or her talking to a friend whom I think she did really like and the friend being an idiot. Still not getting shady.
          Maybe I am reacting to the negative connotation of “shady” which seems underhanded and negative as opposed to saying she is strategic. I will agree to disagree with you on this one.

    • PJ says:

      I agree and I’m really surprised more people can’t see this about Lisa. I think Lisa is as shady as they come, manipulates behind the scenes, places herself very strategically, plays to the audience, then plays the victim. I also think she is a master of deflection and answers questions for the purpose of never having to admit anything she herself does but using her fan favorite status to throw shade on others while she plays the victim. I personally do not believe for even one second that Lisa is anyone’s victim. People dislike Brandi but until Brandi did whatever that was that she was doing last season Lisa loved her and they were friends, so if you just do a bit of logical thinking that brings you to the conclusion that Lisa likes the way Brandi is just not if Brandi loses the audience and doesn’t kiss Lisa’s rear end like Lisa R does. Just my opinion everyone is entitled to have one.

    • oh em jeee
      WE GET IT…….. you’re channeling red lip …. UGHHHHHHHH.

      That pic above with some kid that looks like the new kid on SNL ^^^^ – Kyle looks PHOTOSHOPPED into that pic! i’m looking at it on a computer screen now…. i swear it does!!!!

      I have to say, Kyle’s hair looked SO good that one time she wore it wavy- i think it was when Lisa2 and Eileen were asking Kim about if she has anyone to talk to…..

      she should wear her hair like that, with minimal makeup/ or the no makeup makeup look. She looked fresh and young and NON-MENOPAUSAL.

      you’re still #2 Kyle, ….. keep striving ⭐

      No beers and no bra burning tonight-it’s too friggen cold to go anywhere!!

      • LOLOL

        no seriously- no beers tonight? I’m going on a friggin wine tour next saturday because my friend thought it would be oh so cool (litralee) in the winter to go and do that. If we have snow and/or these temps, it’ll be hysterical. Because we’re locked in to it!

        I want to buy a Lisa2 I told my therapist about you t-shirt…. she’s hysterical. If that Rinna doesn’t reply to me on any tweets or anything i’m DONE with her, DONE XXXXXX.

    (I’m kidding…you know I’m kidding right???)
    I’m scared for the reunion cause I know Kyle is going to cry so many times-no one wants to see that-not even me!!

    • I don’t want to turn this into an I hate Kyle blog ….. 😉….😆😂😂😂😂but….

      Seriously that tissue box better be a super size one, it better be in a (very fake) chanel tissue box holder, and maybe kyle will break out the “im on my period” line if she gets too emo. I think Ramona used that one once ……😩😜LOL

      • not THAT Jill says:

        Haha Ramona didn’t say that did she?? I think she did mention her period but it was in reference to her thinking she was pregnant…but I wouldn’t put it past Ramona to use PMS as an excuse!! Would Kyle?? Oh God I hope not!! Imagine the hate she would get…hahahahahaha!!!

      • Exit4 says:

        I think kyle is the one of the most normal women on all the franchises. I have fake Chanel “diamond” earrings that I got at the hair salon. Don’t hate me! But I love them! 💎 she is emotional-I’ll give you that. I think histrionics runs in the family.

        • austin1963 says:

          People give Kyle so much hate for doing or being the exact same way the other women are. It’s always been such a double standard on this blog. She’s a human being, she’s got plenty of flaws like anyone else, big deal. It is possible to like both Kyle AND Lisa V. at the same time. I do. I just don’t think that Lisa V. is absolutely perfect like some.

        • kit9 says:

          Kyle obvi knows it’s fake and doesn’t care. But, if Chanel did make a doggy dish, Kyle could afford it. I think she just likes the logo or collects it as a kitchy thing.

    • austin1963 says:

      Seriously. It’s really sort of disturbing.

  80. serenanyc says:

    I’m predicting that Brandi will walk off at least once to fulfill her need for attention and that Kyle will break down causing several of the girls to gather around and console her.

  81. Foxymel(Mel) says:

    It would be great if Kyle posts a picture after the reunion dining together MINUS Brandi at one of Lisa’s restaurants. Kinda like a victory pic. Bye bye Brandi…take that horrible looking weave with you.

  84. Cityside says:

    Aviva D & Reed on MBCamp OK, I just have to say this – Aviva is mad at her MOM as a child NOT her creepy Dad! Am I the only one who thinks it is possible her mother drank because the Dad is C R E E P Y and I bet has always been that way. Come on my 80 yr old dad did not change his personality in old age. I just think she was brainwashed by Dad to make dead mom the bad guy. Aviva said her mother was drinking because Aviva lost one of those long legs and her mother was a model and those long legs where important to her mother.

    Really Aviva, just think about that.


    • Exit4 says:

      I don’t know-that’s a tough one! Don’t watch BC, but from what I know from NY, I’d bet avivas mom was always a drinker-she just got worse after the accident. That was the catalyst. I think George probably did get creepier in response to his wife’s issue. I think that avivas parents just couldn’t handle what happened to her and in response screwed her up. Whether they overindulged her or went overboard in convincing her she was special? Her parents probably had so much guilt, it was an accident, it wasn’t their fault and in response screwed up their daughter. Clearly, she’s an angry, nasty piece of work-I doubt any of them got the real help they needed. Especially her, she’s so angry.
