Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Part 3 – No Resolution for the Richards Sisters / The Real Housewives of New York City – New House, Old Grudges

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Reunion – Part 3 of 3 – S5E22
by Stars99

Group w Andy
Remember Last Week…
We had hoped the Reunion shows would bring world peace, didn’t we? Well they didn’t… And, at the risk spoiling this last part for you – World Peace is not realized at the end of tonight’s show, either – Sorry. Gracie Lou Freebush will be saddened to hear that they also didn’t achieve a “Harsher punishment for parole violators.” (Sorry, gratuitous and obscure Miss Congeniality reference)…lol

This Week…
And speaking of Gracie Lou “Freebush” – Andy dives into this part of the Reunion saying that a rich life does not always mean an elegant tongue… Cue all the women saying and doing all kinds of things involving boobies, various names for their nether regions, and other words and phrases that may or may not be offensive to you. They talk about how Brandi is considered to have a dirty mouth but not necessarily because she says the “F” word and cusses a lot – But because of the vulgar and graphic things she says. They talk a little about how Lisa V gets away with saying outlandish things because of her accent. Lisa V tries to explain that the word “pussy” isn’t considered to be a bad word in England. Can we please move on?

Andy does not think that it’s an issue for Brandi to date 22 or 23-year-olds because, of course, he’s 4 years older than she and does the same thing. Brandi makes a valid point that if it’s okay for older men to date young women that it should be okay for older women to date young men (Note: I don’t think she used the word “older” in her explanation, btw…lol). Surprisingly, Brandi was not called out much about all of the “old” rhetoric she used throughout the entire season. It’s surprising that someone who is 42 would be so vocal about women aging, no? It’s wonky for Brandi to refer to someone as “menopausal” when they’re only a couple of years older than she.

Lisa R got the crown for dropping the most “F” bombs throughout the season. I wonder if there’s a fu**ing parade? Sorry… (Puts $1 into the cussin’ jar)… Lisa R said she got a lecture from her husband wherein he encouraged her to try to use the “F” word a little less often. Lisa R was very self-deprecating about the whole thing. And because she is way more of a comedian than Brandi could ever hope to be, she used Brandi’s slam from last week’s episode about her vintage hairstyle and made an impromptu, funny joke saying, “I’ll put a crown on my 20-year-old hairdo.” SlammmmMMMmm…lol. Point Rinna…lol.

Lisa R if looks could kill
Andy asks if Lisa R and Kim have resolved their issues or talked since the Finale. Kim said she got some text messages from Lisa R and gleefully starts reading them. Rut roh… This isn’t going to be good… Kim says, “After the finale I get a message… ‘Be very careful – Or I will fu** you up. You be nice to your sister. You believe her. And stop telling lies – In that order. Thanks.’ Then the next day I get, ‘You need to get wise – Brandi is not telling the truth – She is lying and I should have said that to you in that moment but I didn’t want another Amsterdam to happen – And it would have.’ And then she sends another one, ‘Your behavior and the way you treat people is not okay. You are nasty and you need to be stopped now.’” After reading the texts out loud, Kim pretends that she really got frightened.”

Well, that wasn’t Lisa R’s best moment, was it? But I do have to say that at least she politely used “thanks” after threatening Kim. Wow… Who saw that coming? I didn’t… Andy asks Lisa R what made her send the text messages. Lisa R hadn’t gotten a resolution about things at the Finale and it basically irritated her. Lisa R has issues stemming about people shushing her from way back in her childhood. Kim has done a lot of “shushing” of Lisa R this season. When Lisa starts talking about how her dad shut her down a lot – Kim smirks and laughs at Lisa R and snarkily comments to Brandi, “Look, she’s going to cry now.”

Kim - Shes gonna cry now
Kim tries to say that she thinks Lisa R is only crying now because people will now see that she wants to hurt her [Kim]. Kim accuses Lisa R of having a problem because she wants to hurt people. Lisa R says of her actions that she “Fu**in lost it – And that’s the truth.” Andy says, so you felt like your back was against the wall…

And because Brandi (The Twit) can’t wait to jump in… Brandi says that there have been a couple times during this very Reunion that she thought Lisa R was going to get up… The CLEAR insinuation was that Lisa R was going to somehow physically attack poor widdle Kim or Brandi… Puhleeze. Where’s your gangsta badass persona now, Brandi? The only battle Lisa R is going to initiate is a battle of wits against the both of you – And guess what – She could win that with both her lips tied behind her back.

Eileen commented that because of Kim’s provocation that we saw Lisa R go to a place where she’s never even seen herself go. Kim made a nasty comment about how she thinks that if anyone looked up Lisa R’s [police] record that they would find out that she has a history of things like this – Clearly insinuating charges like assault and battery, etc. Eileen defended Lisa R by saying that she’s been apologizing forever and that she was appalled by her own actions. Kim said that there was something not right with Lisa…

Lisa R is in tears and Kim is just smirking and laughing a lot. Andy asks Kim why is she laughing at her? Kim said it was because she didn’t believe her because she thinks she’s just embarrassed because she sent the text messages. Duh… Of COURSE she’s embarrassed, Kim – You… you… you… you…Arghhhhh…. I’m trying hard not to say what I really want to say… But come the heck on… I can only refrain for so long…

Eileen moves over the other couch to comfort Lisa R. I believe Eileen will multitask and will quickly write her name permanently on that portion of her new couch so she never ever has to go back to the couch of the Wackadoodles. Lisa R is trying to express her feelings as she’s crying… Lisa R says that she’s been shut down so much – and it just triggered something within her. Kim keeps belittling Lisa R and Lisa V tells Kim to stop it. Eileen tells Kim to get over herself. Yeah, cuz aren’t we ALL way over Kim? Lisa R said that she’s sorry she hurt Kim. Kim actually looked a little surprised at the prospect that Lisa R was being genuine in her apology. Kim gets up and goes over to Lisa R and hugs her. Eileen guards her place on the couch with her life so Kim couldn’t sit there with them, too… Although, I think it would have been a little funny to see Brandi sitting all alone on the other couch, no? Throughout Kim and Lisa R’s kumbaya hug, Brandi smirked…

Lisa R tears
They had a discussion about eating space cake in Amsterdam. Brandi said she didn’t have any because at that time she was in the middle of a lawsuit with her ex-husband – But that if she went now she would have some. For some incomprehensible reason, Brandi doesn’t know why everyone can talk about Brandi and Kim’s sobriety – but that she can’t talk about Kyle’s smoking pot… Here, let me try to explain some of the reasons to you, Brandi…

Alcohol: 1) It is legal for those of age; 2) There’s ample footage on the show evidencing that Brandi (and others) drink; 3) Teenaged and older children are certainly already aware of their Mom’s drinking.

Smoking Pot: 1) It is still illegal in most states, including California; 2) It happened off screen; 3) Teenaged and older children may not be already aware that their Moms might allegedly occasionally smoke pot; and 4) Other housewives may not be ready to launch into the whole “adults can do this and you can’t” dialogue.

I think Brandi was just flipping out about how everyone was sitting in Amsterdam pretending they didn’t know the first thing about pot – Because she knew that at least some of them had first-hand experience with it. She brought the subject up because I think she just couldn’t take it anymore. It doesn’t make it right – But I can understand it from that perspective. However, I still think that specifically outing Kyle for it was really wrong.

Kyle thinks Brandi went after her about the pot because Brandi thought that Kyle had been saying mean things about Brandi’s parenting to the other women in the group. When Kyle brought up the fact that there wasn’t a single instance of it on this season – Brandi responded by saying that there’s a lot of footage that never airs. Everyone backs up Kyle when she asks everyone sitting there if they’ve ever heard her talk about Brandi’s parenting.

Brandi
Kyle further demonstrates that smoking pot is really not her thing because she’s such a control freak. She gets neurotic and can’t breathe when she smokes pot. Plus, Kyle points out that she wouldn’t show that side of herself to Brandi and not to the other women with whom she’s much better friends. Well, sorry Kyle – But that argument isn’t very strong – Many alcoholics have drinking buddies who aren’t their good friends – I’m guessing the same might be true for drugs. Brandi calls Kyle a liar. Kyle tells Brandi to shut up for a minute when Brandi goes off on how she thinks Kyle was talking about Brandi and Kim’s drinking/sobriety. Kyle said she didn’t do that. And because Brandi has not yet taken Eileen’s advice to find a Thesaurus to learn how to better express herself, Brandi has no other words but to tell Kyle to “Fu** you.” Charming.

In tonight’s edition of, “I KID YOU NOT” – Brandi actually says to Kyle – I KID YOU NOT, “Maybe you have a drug problem and you’re in denial.” Holy Deflection, Batman – Where in the HECK did that come from? Wow… While at this point, I would condescendingly pat Brandi on the head and say, “There, there – Very soon it will be alright” – But I don’t happen to have the 10 foot pole handy I would need to do it. I mean… Gosh – What do you say to that? There are just no words. Perhaps I need to borrow a Thesaurus myself…lol.

Brandi thinks it’s hypocritical that they’re all talking about space cake and popping Xanax for airplane rides (Umm… Isn’t that you, Brandi?) but that somehow everyone else seems to be worried and focused on Kim and Brandi’s sobriety or lack thereof. Brandi tries to make the point that if Kim was the one who had eaten some space cake that things would have been handled very differently for her. Andy gently points out that when someone struggles with their sobriety that it IS different. Kim stops Andy right there. She wants everyone to know that she has not struggled with her sobriety and that she has never struggled with her sobriety.

Okay, now that’s just a silly thing for someone to say who has been to rehab 3 times, no? I don’t know a single person who considers themselves as a recovering alcoholic who hasn’t also struggled to remain sober at one point or another. Plus, we have footage of Kim in Eileen’s kitchen disclosing about how she had been recently going through a lot of hard things and that she often isolates when she drinks. I guess I don’t understand the downside to acknowledging that remaining sober can be a struggle at times. There’s a reason why AA embraces the concept, “One Day at a Time.”

Kim then rehashes the whole pill thing once again…Ack! Frankly, I’m so tired of this subject. She took a pill. Lied about where she got it. Lied about not knowing what it was. Then she made all kinds of excuses about it. In this edition of the story, Kim mentioned that she was in “chronic pain.” Really, Kim? If that’s true – Since you said that you had been back and forth to the doctor’s office over the last couple of months – Why hadn’t adequate pain medication been prescribed to you?

I took a pill for a chronic pain I was having… Nor have I struggled with my sobriety for the last 3 years – If any of this was real concern I thank you – but I don’t believe that… I am sober – I have been sober for 3 years… I don’t appreciate all the conversations that have been behind my back… I don’t appreciate these rumors…

After Kim expresses that she doesn’t appreciate all the conversations being held behind her back – Kyle points out that Brandi was having a lot of conversations about it, too. Brandi tries to correct Kyle that she only had the one conversation with Lisa R. about it – But Kyle reminds Brandi of the 2 conversations she had with Jennifer about Kim. They talk about how it’s ludicrous for Kim to show up to a gathering on a reality TV show higher than a kite and then expect that no one would talk about it.

Lisa V Not amused
The subject drifts towards Brandi’s influence on Kim’s behavior. Of course, Kyle has seen a change in Kim once she got close to Brandi. Brandi doesn’t think her being Kim’s friend has had any influence on Kim and Kyle’s relationship. Lisa V thinks that Brandi may not be the actual cause of the issues between the sisters but that she certainly exacerbates them.

Kim says that things have occurred outside of this TV show and this group that have greatly hurt her – But she doesn’t want to talk about them at the moment. Kyle says that she has been hurt, too. Kim assures us that it had nothing to do with Brandi Glanville.

Kim petting brandi
Kyle asks Kim how she thinks she felt on Halloween when Kim’s dog bit Kyle’s daughter. Kim says that Kyle decided to post pictures on Instagram and to make a public display of it. Kyle says she never said whose dog it was or that it was her sister’s dog. Kyle tries to tell her side of the story but Kim just won’t shut up even after Andy specifically asks her to. Kim then accuses Kyle of making it into a joke? Really? What kind of medication are you on, Kim – Because that comment came from left field unless there was some creative editing going on… Then Kim screams, “You’re horrible”…And again, I say, huh???? Then Kim looks at Andy and snottily says, “This is why I don’t like her.” Kyle screams, “My daughter almost lost her hand.” Kim screams, “Your daughter had a bite on her fu**in’ finger.” Kyle says that it got infected to the bone.

Lisa V defending arm
Kyle reminded Kim that Alexia was at Cedars-Sinai hospital for 5 days. Lisa V confirms Alexia was on a drip for 5 days. Kim starts crying and says that her daughter Whitney asked Kyle to take down the pictures and that Kyle didn’t. Kim accuses Kyle of posting the pictures just to increase the number of her Instagram followers. Kim thinks Kyle did it all just for public display…

Then Kim says that when she got into a hospital room that Alexia couldn’t fall asleep because there were 25 people around her taking pictures, etc… Kim mocked the hospital scene by pretending to be Alexia trying to get some sleep… It was pretty awful… Kyle said Alexia’s friends were there to support her…Then Kim threatens, “You want me to tell the whole story… I’ll tell the story and you won’t like it.” Kyle does not seem to know what the HECK Kim is talking about – I’m not even sure what planet Kim’s on. Kyle asks Kim if she wants to have an honest conversation… Kim wants to do it – but she says it in a really threatening way…

Kim finger
Normal Calibration Checkpoint: Normal dog owners likely would be horrified their dogs bit anyone under most circumstances. Normal dog owners would be concerned about the wellbeing of the young adult who was bitten. Normal dog owners would be falling over themselves apologizing profusely over and over again that it ever happened. Normal dog owners would lose sleep worrying about the ongoing health of the victim. Because it’s family – One would think the level of concern would dramatically increase, no? There was not a single breath of an apology from Kim about the incident – At all.

Okay… Now here is where there is a batcrapcrazy verbal exchange between the two sisters. In the middle of it, Lisa R makes a comment about how Kim has a “scary voice.” I know I shouldn’t be laughing right now – But when have I ever said that I always acted appropriately? The reason why I’m laughing is because it’s clear Kim doesn’t have an original thought in her head and throughout this entire exchange she just parrots back everything that Kyle says to her. It got so confusing that I asked Mr. Stars99 to listen to it, too – He listened to Kyle and I listened to Kim and it was STILL very confusing…lol. The bottom line is that they both called each other names… They both hurled insulting accusations at each other… And they both think the other is mean. It was a little surreal to watch, I must admit.

And, like she’s done 4 million times before, Kim pretends to have a big story that Kyle won’t like if she talks about it right now. Kim insinuates it’s regarding one of Kyle’s kids – It’s unclear to me if it’s about the dog bite or not – But Kyle doesn’t know what Kim’s going to say next. I mean, who does?

Kyle horrified
Kyle tells Kim that she hopes Kim isn’t about to say something that will hurt her child. Kim accuses Kyle of not giving Alexia the antibiotics for 2 days (presumably after the bite). Kim somehow twists this whole dog bite situation to be Kyle’s fault. Kim decides that she doesn’t want to talk about it any further,

Andy asks incredulously them if this is what they’ve been fighting about all this time… Lisa R clues in that Kim has once again determined what they can discuss on the show and what they can’t discuss. Kim gets to have her say and then shuts down anything further from being said about it. Kim starts crying because she said the situation hurt her whole family.

Wait… It’s Kyle’s daughter who got hurt, no? Kim said that it was very painful for her children. Again, It’s Kyle’s daughter who got hurt, no? Kyle tells Kim that Alexia had an IV for 3 weeks. Kim states how close Monty was to the dog.

Andy point blank asks Kim where Kingsley is at the moment. I respond by saying that of course she’s at home with Kristen from the Real Housewives of New York (Her daughter’s name is Kingsley…lol). Sorry… You know… Tense moments… Bad joke… Please forgive me…

Okay, and if I thought it was weird before… This whole exchange got really, really wackadoodle now… Kim says that Kingsley is with a trainer right now. Andy seems to be… Well, like a dog with a bone because he kept on asking about Kingsley. Kyle is so not saying a word but defers to Kim. Kim says that the subject of her dog is off limits just like her children. Oh baby, something is really, really offfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff….

Andy talks to Kim about how it seems like she’s equating her dog with her children. Kim says that Kingsley is like a child to her. I think most dog owners can really relate to this. Kim’s face has turned really read and she’s crying real tears.

Then, in yet another edition of “I KID YOU NOT” – Kim says of this experience with the dog bite and Kingsley, I KID YOU NOT, “This has been the most painful thing I’ve gone through.”

Normal Calibration Checkpoint: Kim, one would think having your mother or father die would be the worst thing… Or your fiancé being murdered would register somewhere on the scale of painful things… One would also think that a lifetime of battling alcohol and knowing how it adversely affected your loved ones around you would be a pretty low point, too. Or perhaps it would be going through one of your divorces… Or here’s one, how about your ex-husband, who is currently living with you – Who is DYING of cancer… I mean this is just some of the stuff I know about your life and I’m no expert. Assuming you’re telling the truth and Kingsley is indeed, at a trainer’s – Even IF you did place this as “the most painful thing I’ve gone through” – IT ISN’T EVEN FOR THE RIGHT REASON! It’s not because your niece got hurt… But it’s because it became public… Or is it?

Andy tries to comfort Kim by saying that it’s a good thing then – That Kingsley is at a trainer’s and he’s getting trained. Kim just icily stared at Andy and said the subject of the dog is off limits. Whoa baby…

Okay, I think I get it now. As a result of the dog bite incident, Kingsley may have had to go away to a dog trainer’s, perhaps? There is no mention that Kim pays the trainer to bring Kingsley back around the house to see Monty or her kids when they’re over. She didn’t mention that she visited Kingsley recently, either. Kim seems overly concerned about her kids and doesn’t consider what Alexia went through at all for some reason. I hope something didn’t happen at the “trainers” that would have adversely affected Kingsley – It’s not his fault he had an owner who couldn’t and wouldn’t handle him properly. I think Kim blames Kyle for all of this because the incident took Kingsley away from her home, her children, and her dying ex-husband… Perhaps permanently.

Kyle wonders how this all got turned around onto her. Kim once again says there’s more to the story than Kyle even knows because Kim’s never told the story. Lisa V astutely points out that once again there is a lot of insinuation going on… Yep… All smoke and no barbecue.

Kim, pretending to be Captain Transparent, says that there’s nothing that she won’t tell the others off camera. Andy says to Kim, “So you’ll just imply it on camera.” I think Andy’s really cranky at Kim because of course it does him no good to have these conversations occur off camera. People have been fired for this, no?

Kim blathers on about what a great relationship she has with Kathy – That she talks to her 3-4 times a day and that they go out to dinner, etc. Who in the heck cares? This is just another obvious jab at Kyle. Recognizing the comment for what it is, Kyle tells Kim that she loves her as a sister – But as a person she doesn’t like her very much. Kim agrees.

Eileen not liking
There was a funny fake out scene wherein Lisa tries to convince the staffers that “pussy” isn’t a bad word in England. One of the staffers (he may be English) seems to agree with her but I’m laughing too hard to care. This whole thing is very hilarious to me.

Andy brings up how Kyle should be vindicated because of the footage that Kim has now seen that shows that Kyle was telling the truth all along. But Kim doesn’t give Kyle even that.

As the discussion wound down, people were suggesting what the sisters could do at this point since neither of them really knows where to go from here. Lisa V suggests that they put a lid on their disagreements. This will enable Kyle to go to Brooke’s big wedding and be in the pictures, etc. And also so that Kyle can be there for Kim as she walks through these (presumably) last few months with Monty. I wonder when Kim will ever be there for Kyle. Brandi says she washes her hands of the situation because she thinks it’s batcrapcrazy (or something like that…lol). Kyle says that if Kim doesn’t want her at the wedding that she won’t go.

Andy asks the women where things stand at this point of time…
Kyle says she’s sad.
Kim says she doesn’t know.
Brandi says that more than anything – That she doesn’t want to break up a family – (Yeah, or you would be at risk to be called a “Home wrecker, no? Seriously, this is hilarious to me because Brandi has been saying all along that the friction between the sisters isn’t her fault – But now she seems to be taking a twisted kind of credit for it? My head is spinning…) Brandi tells the sisters that she wants them to be happy and that family is forever. She says that no matter what anyone else thinks that she wants Kyle to be at the wedding.
Eileen’s not sure but that this experience has been epic and it’s going to take a while to process it. Andy asks her if she would do it again and Eileen says that it’s a big question…(I start chanting, DO IT… DO IT… DO IT…)
Lisa R it’s been interesting and that she’s never done anything like this before. She only wants the best for everyone – And she remembers to include Yolanda. Wow… It seems like it’s been years since we’ve seen her, right?
Lisa V says that it’s all very complicated but the rest of them will somehow work it all out – But they don’t have as much at stake as the sisters do… Of course, Brandi rolled her eyes.

Well… That’s it for this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills… I laffed… I cried… But mostly I just cringed. Seriously, I really appreciate the time you took to read my snarky rantings… It was fun to laugh at the foolishness, wasn’t it? For those interested in the Real Housewives of New York – I’ll see you again next week… But until then, Happy Trails!

The Real Housewives of New York City – New House, Old Grudges

by EmpressofAiken

housewarming-in-the-hamptons-the-real-housewives-of-new-york-cit

The ladies spent most of the time in the Hamptons.  Bethenny arrived, eventually.  You see,  what’s happened is that Dr. Amador morphed into Matt Foley and Bethenny has been living in a van down by the river.   It’s sad, really.  All that money and she can’t find anyplace to live except for the backseat of a (chauffeur driven)  car.

LuAnn is selling everything from her old house – light fixtures, floor tiles, toilet paper holders, the works, because the buyer is tearing the place down.   She has some new digs in Sag Harbor, which Sonja finds “cozy” –  Sonja’s code word for one step above government housing.   Dorinda and Ramona stopped by and Ramona starts to talk with LuAnn about the memories she has of the house.  She also pulled LuAnn aside to apologize for the things she’s said in the past.  She says that she now understand how it is to walk in someone else’s shoes, especially when it comes to cheating husbands.  LuAnn accepted the apology, cautiously.  It sounded sincere to me.

Ramona is going to have Dorinda and Sonja stay with her at her house and gives Dorinda the room normally reserved for Sonja.  Sonja isn’t happy about the arrangements and says that she’s been relegated to Mario’s doghouse.  She then proceeds to talk about all of her houses, in Aspen and France and New York, some of which aren’t hers anymore and some of which may be turned over to satisfy a couple of lawsuits.   It’s classic Sonja in all of her delusional grandeur.  Dorinda  pretty accurately described her as Mary Poppins meets Zsa Zsa Gabor.

Back at LuAnn’s, Carole has met LuAnn’s new chef, Adam,  and is immediately smitten.  She’s even willing to pretend to know how to cook just to stay in the kitchen with him.   Kristen arrives.  I think that’s all she did – arrived.  If she said or did anything else, it wasn’t very memorable.

Ramona, Dorinda and Sonja go out for lunch and are joined by Ramona’s sister, Tanya.  Sonja starts asking Dorinda about her dry cleaner boyfriend, but it seemed like an opportunity for Sonja to bring up Mario – over and over.  Ramona makes it clear that she doesn’t want to talk about him, but it wasn’t clear to Sonja.  She just kept prattling on and on about Mario and how he must be like John the dry cleaner because one is Italian and one is Armenian.   That makes sense, right?  Spaniards, Norwegians, Estonians, Greeks –  same difference.  They’re all European.

LuAnn is playing hostess for a dinner party at her new house for all of the ladies.  Lady Morgan shows up with some bottles of Corona in her purse.  They weren’t a housewarming gift, they were her beverage of choice.  It must be a high society thing.   Then Bethenny arrives and the entire dynamic changed.  Bethenny said that she was concerned about the reception she’d receive and she had good reason to be.  Ramona straightened her back as only Ramona can and was ready to go after every word Bethenny said.  Bethenny asked Ramona about her dating life and Ramona said that she was keeping the company of men.  Now, I don’t know about you, but to me that sounds the a courtesan.  Bethenny said as much and commented that Ramona must be doing men, banging men, f**king men, sucking men.   In her talking head, Carole said that it was like watching a battle of the alpha dogs.

Heather didn’t cut Bethenny much slack, either.  She mentioned that LuAnn had a copy of Bethenny’s first book and that she understood that LuAnn helped Bethenny invent Skinnygirl Margaritas.  She laughingly said that Bethenny owed LuAnn a car or a Rolex.  Heather said that if she were to ever sell Yummy Tummy for ginormous dollars that she’d buy the friend who helped her name the company a car.

It only got worse for Bethenny when she invited the ladies to her house in the Hamptons to brunch in the morning.  Ramona started peeing on house guests’ legs to mark her territory and began to lecture Bethenny on guest protocol.  According to Ramona, one can’t ask someone else’s guests to do anything or eat anything or say anything without first asking permission from their hostess.     She then sought a ruling on the matter from the highest authority by asking the Countess for her opinion.  LuAnn mumbled something which really didn’t help things much. Yes. Maybe. No.

Bethenny then went outside with LuAnn to find out if Ramona had stolen one of Monty’s pills and was high.  Oh, sorry, wrong Housewives.   While they were outside, Ramona tells the others that she sent them and email inviting them for brunch.  No one seemed to have gotten the email and Ramona says that her computer has been putting her emails in the trash.   Dontcha just hate when that happens?   Well, it doesn’t matter, because Ramona insists she sent it and they should have accepted her invitation whether they got it or not.   She called dibs and that’s that.

Ramona then takes her story of the disappearing emails outside to explain the situation to Bethenny.  Bethenny is having none of it, though, and tells Ramona that she doesn’t want to hang out with her.   Ramona begins to channel Kelly Bensimon and, while speaking in the softest of voices, tells Bethenny to take a breath and calm down.   Somewhere, in Australia, Alex McCord is smiling and nodding.

We don’t know where the ladies are going for brunch.  We’ll find out next week.   Stars99 will fill you in on the details then.  If you missed her recap of episode one, you can find it here – https://lynnfam.com/2015/04/08/real-housewives-of-new-york-city-the-b-is-back/  I promise you, it’s worth your while.

I don’t know why Sonja’s missing from the picture.  If I were LuAnn,  I’d be checking the kitchen – or Noel’s cottage.  An ankle monitor might be a good idea.

Empress

219 Responses to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Part 3 – No Resolution for the Richards Sisters / The Real Housewives of New York City – New House, Old Grudges

  1. Veena (NMD) says:

    Good morning,

    A big welcome back to Empress.

    Both blogs had me cracking up this morning. Empress – you captured Ramona so perfectly last night – her “I was planning a brunch – my email must be in your spam folder” had me on the floor. She must have been worried she wasn’t going to be invited to Bethenny’s place and would end up as a ‘friend’ and not a full housewife. She sure was scrambling.

    Starzy – your blog was so much better to read than watching the reunion. Some of the stuff coming out of Kim and Brandi’s mouths made my jaw drop. Though I will say – Kyle probably shouldn’t have instagrammed the hospital photo – but taking it down after the fact wouldn’t have helped. And Lisa R does have a healthy dose of crazy and mean in her as well. (ducking)

    • T-Rex says:

      At least CraggyDRUNKASSRamona didn’t blame “unpaid minions” for the “dog ate my email” excuse! From what is being said in the Post and other mags in NYC, CraggyDRUNKASSRamona has crawled into that proverbial “bottle” trying to deal with this divorce, and I don’t think she remembers what she did or didn’t do at this point in time. Kinda sad, I think she is taking this WAY harder than she is portraying. It doesn’t help that she is probably going to lose both the Hamptons Home and the Manhattan apartment(plus their two other vacation homes) in all of this, and she is terrified of this.

      • Powell says:

        I hope she leaves the Ramona Pinot alone T-Rex. Don’t fall apart over Mario. He wins if that happens. Just like Booble Bobble Head. Eddie wins every time she opens her mouth.
        I hope Ramona gets the apartment and the Hamptons home. Mario can suck it.

        • Kansas Girl says:

          I thought she caught him in that Hamptons house, so would she really want it?

          • Powell says:

            KG I wouldn’t but when she was talking to Dorinda reminiscing about the house she sure didn’t sound like she would want to move on. I sure would want to sell it and get my own place and to get Mario’s bad juju out of my life.

        • T-Rex says:

          Powell, they have no Pre-nup and NewYork is a community property state, unless they agree to split the properties, then they will probably end up selling them, unless CraggyDrunkAssRamona has enough money reserved to “buy” LetharioMario out, which I don’t think she does. Also. her drunk antics have been noted in NUMEROUS papers and magazines unfortunately, she thinks she can “hold” her liquor and she can’t, I don’t see why she isn’t embarrassed watching herself being that drunk and ridiculous. Look I think what LetharioMario did was HORRIFIC, but she put up with it for a long time, she thought she couldn’t do any better than her “gorgeous(her words” husband, so she stayed and she wanted her daughter to grow up in a two parent family. Lots of women do the same thing she has done. However, if you stay with a cheater and just turn a blind eye, they end up leaving their partner when something better finally comes along.

      agree with your last statement. Haven’t watched that yet but thanks STARZ also for BLOGGING IT!!!!! WHAT A HEADACHE

        You’re welcome, Chis the Wiz… I appreciate the Excedrin, too… It really came in handy. 🙂

    • Powell says:

      LOL NMD. Mmmm hmmmm. Evvvverybody’s email went to their spam folder. Ok Ramona. 😆😆
      With those two chuckle heads all season long, I guess the good kinda crazy would have come out of me too. If, IF Kim gets herself a therapist I hope that therapist watches every season of BH. Did you say jaw dropping? OOMMGGG!!!!! 😱

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

      Thanks, Veena…Yeah, the exchange between the sisters was pretty horrible. It was pretty surreal to watch it… And as to your comment about Lisa R, “How Dare You?” lolol

  2. T-Rex says:

    Awesome Blogs Ladies, nice to see the Empress back in the HOUSE here! Both did a great job. Did anyone else catch that DrunkDelusionalGreyGardensSonja seemed to be in “heat” again and would have banged LuManHubcapPurveyorExtraordinaire’s gardner if he would have said he wanted to? UGH. Oh, and CraggyDRUNKASSRamona is still BatcrapCrazy and unfortunately let’s us know precisely why LetharioMario may have finally thrown in the towel on their marriage. See he has been cheating for years(go back to Season One when this is discussed), also LuManHubcapPurveyorExtraordinaire hinted as much also at the Season 2 Reunion, glass houses and stones sort of thing. I think that she was quite gracious in her acceptance of CraggyDRUNKASSRamona’s apology, but since that BSC woman was so drunk will she even remember shes apologized. I enjoyed the first show, I am a Bethenny fan, and she seemed the same to me like she always was, I love her one-liners. LOVING Dorinda! I hope that she is like this all season, and we don’t see her daughter again, and they focus on her. Tension seems to definitely be brewing between the two DrunkAssBSCBesties DrunkDelusionalGreyGardensSonja and CraggyDRUNKASSRamona, the current interview seems to confirm this. Really looking forward to watching this season. Glad BHills is OVER! If they bring back those two idiots we hate, then this will have been my last season watching that franchise. I love TheRoyalVPump, and LypsLisa and ThatTrampweLOVEEileen, and I know they have already been sent contracts for the next season, but they can’t save the franchise for me if those two are back.

    • serenanyc says:

      Oh I’m so glad you have the inside scoop on who’s been invited back! I guess Yolanda will be a friend. Is there any word on an Adrienne or Camille return?

      • T-Rex says:

        From what I have heard McJudgeyYoloLymonHead is welcome to come back in whatever capacity she can handle. I believe she has told the Producers and MzAndy that she has no intention of coming back full time to the show at this time, her focus is on her health and family.

        • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

          i can’t see her wasting an opportunity to show off her daughters — who i’m sure are spending so much time with their ailing mom- just like she is with her own mom who is sick ! (pre-relapse with lyme)–

          And i’m sorry- but if my inkling that things are not great in the King’s marriage to Yo— she needs this show. Then all she’d have is Anwar- who will be off to college (i hope???!!!!???) soon.

          David can’t leave Yo at a time like this even if he actually wanted to. She’s too ill. Right?
          Wow, this is much to ponder.

      • T-Rex says:

        MzAndy doesn’t want TwoFaceCamilliazilla back on the show, not sure why but he has stated publicly numerous times that she will not be returning to Ho-wives ever, as a full time cast member.

    • Agree great blogs. Special shout out to Empress being back with so much going on – we definitely appreciate it and wish you well and sending good thoughts.

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

        Thanks, SJP – Isn’t it great to have Empress back? Yay!

    • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

      Ra and Sonja have done recent press IRL IRT lately- so they are not completely NOT speaking to eachother. Plus sweet innocent tweets have been sent. I don’t think they’re kaput.

      i’m not married and so i hesitate to speak of this – but i hate to blame Ramona no matter her nastiness others (after editing) see- for the breakup of her marriage.

      Same as Brandi- (though i shiver to compare the two- NOT the same- i’m just using an example of someone not liked by fans)- Mario and she had a marriage and even any NY insider gossip rags never reported RAMONA cheating on Mario unlike the one who holds herself both physically and ‘socially’ 🙄 above all- the countLess— who was well-talked about as having been cheating at the same time as her hubby.

      (i don’t but Bethenny into this category because she never made it to what, 2 years, let alone 2 decades??)

      That’s why i don’t find their two marriages similar. Plus- helicopter parenting or not (and sorry, in NYC’s super competitive school/ social life market- parents need to BE ON TOP OF THINGS lest they have a daughter with broken arms sneaking out of her house or being found high on the kush- oh yeah that’s Lu’s kid….. )— Ramona turned out a wonderful daughter. And i always, hate to say it- judge the kids by the parents and vice versa.
      She had a tough upbringing and was wonderful being a mother to her daughter. Lu imo was a weekend mom during those pivotal last years of high school for Victoria and formative early h.s. years of Noelle. I think as she was one of what- 7/ 8 kids- maybe mothering wasn’t a big deal to her? I don’t know- not casting judgement- but to leave her kids in the hamptons all week ??? And then be with them on the weekends?

      Some of you may know i’m unnaturally super close to my mother, who didn’t have a mother- and a terrible father/ evil stepmother (she was cinderella!!!)- and so i can relate to Ramona’s closeness to Avery.

      Look at how gross and filthy a visage of a human Brandi is- i still don’t know if i want to blame her for the breakup of her marriage (though didn’t she cheat? Plus she cheated with him when meeting him??>>> these would change my mind)

      I’m sorry i’m not married but i’m not going to blame the one blatantly cheated on.

      Ramona has friends of decades who have stuck with her through thick and thin, that tells me everything. Most of those other chicks on the show don’t seem to have that. #lightbulb

      Sorry! jmho# jcvho#

      • Powell says:

        Ramona and Mario for that matter did a great job w/Avery. Ramona said she questioned Mario as to what he was doing. She’s sticking up for her mom. Good for her.
        I don’t know what Lu was doing w/her kids. She and Ross broke up so in the end was it worth it being a weekend mom?
        Bobble Head wasn’t to blame for the cheating IMO. I don’t think the spouse that was cheated on is everyone responsible for that. But IMO she was a party to the breakdown of their marriage. Threesomes? Why would you agree to that? But that’s 5/6 yrs ago so move on BBH. But she can’t. He’s still holding her captive cuz she’s letting him.

      • Austin says:

        Very insightful, Chimosa. I agree with every word.

    • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

      i think Ramona has always drank. i mean think back to scary island- to pre-that. I don’t’ see a difference.

      apart from that one thing they discussed on the premiere last week — was that about Ramona? – i don’t think she’s jumping on tables and giving phone numbers out WHILE MARRIED AND NOT EVEN SEPARATED unlike the countLess did.

      sorry, i don’t mind my wine. Not a wine-o but i’m fine and functioning and can take it or leave it and enjoy it to bring fun especially in boring places. Like freaking Missouri or whatever bumble-fu#k they go to. And bumblefu## can include Quogue, or anywhere continental US that is NOT EXOTIC AND NOT HOUSEWIVES WORTHY. ughhhh

      (if i was a HW on one of these stupid shows i’d want BALI or PHUKET or FIJI or SOUTH AFRICA is all i’m saying… i’d be a cragg a$$ bit$h too sweating it out in forests and mountains- yuck!)

    • Powell says:

      T-Rex Sonja is always “On” so I don’t know when she’s in heat or is just being friendly.

  3. SerenaNYC says:

    I didn’t see New York yet but I’m glad BH is over! It was so exhausting.

    I’m beyond done with Kim. Apparently she’s the only addict who doesn’t struggle with her sobriety. She needs help.

    Lisa R is a little crazy but I might have sent a text or two to Kim as well.

    I hope Eileen comes back. I want to see more of the Van Patten family! #EightIsEnough

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Of course she doesn’t struggle with sobriety. She would first have to be sober. No sober, no struggle. It’s perfectly clear to me.

      Oh, and by the way, sweet and innocent little Kimmie, DRUG use is also addiction, just like the booze. KNOW THAT!

  4. ladebra says:

    Awesome blogs Starzy and Empress! I got to watch the reunion, but for some reason my DVR didn’t record NY or WWHL. Bummer.

    The reunion was sad. Kim is a nasty piece of work. And Kyle is too darn emotional to deal with her, she should walk the eff away. Now – honestly – all that seemed so obvious to me, and then I go on twitter and see ” You poor thing Kim, your sister is a piece of trash for outing your alcoholism on TV. You go Kim We love you.” I swear to goodness, Bizarro World does exist. But in the end, I don’t give a crap about the Richards sisters. I’d be fine if I never saw them on my TV or heard them on ROBH every again.

    I am going to try to catch NY on demand, but I hate that I can’t fast forward 😀

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

      Thanks, ladebra, my neighbor! Yeah, I think Kyle should distance herself, too. It’s got to be especially tough when so many cousins are involved.

    • Powell says:

      Yes ladebra Bizarro World does exist. I don’t get why we see things so clearly.

  5. lila1star says:

    Morning–great blogs as always. Actually reading here has been the best thing about HW.
    I am over joyed that BH is over and imo we have been had by Bravo! They are laughing all the way to the bank. I find it insulting and disgusting that they used the serious issue of addiction to dominate this season as well as ruining the season for me.

    This is the worse I think I have seen Andy–he gave a pass to Kim and BG. Read comments from one of BG’s 2 fans and never once called out the elephant in the room. So what good is he as the host?
    He allowed Kim to screech through the reunion part 3 allowing no one to be able to finish a thought. His meager attempt to shush Kim was pathetic and a dismal failure. Which tells me he really didn’t care because I have seen Andy take back the reins many times if he really wanted to.

    Imo I do not think Eileen will be back if Kim and BG come back which I believe they will. Yolanda return is dependent on her health. So with that said I feel like I am now officially finished with the HW franchise as BH was the only one I watched.
    I will continue to read here because your blogs are so well done they can stand alone and there is no need to watch the show to enjoy them.

    Thank you bloggers for a job well done.
    One off topic question–do you all watch “Botched” with Paul— Adrianne’s ex? It really is good.
    Have a great day……

    • designernailsdiana says:

      I enjoy Botched and will watch this season.
      I’m thankful I didn’t watch BH and NY will be read about, but not watched either. These Ho-wives shows are toxic. I loved the first seasons of Orange County because we saw the lifestyles of rich people and their homes. The franchises have become more and more toxic and have no redeeming social value left.
      Bravo bring back the FUN and RICH lifestyles!! Please!!!!

    • austin1963 says:

      Don’t watch. Those are two of the most loathsome house husbands, IMO.

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

      Awww… lila1star – You’re so kind… I can’t tell if Eileen will be back or not – She came out looking good this season… I think she’s great for the franchise… And how will I be able to see my boyfriend if she doesn’t come back? lol

  6. auntannmarie says:

    I’m an old lady with a lot of knee and back pain so I tend to surf the internet quite a lot. I read several blogs and I have got to say, Stars you do it every single time!!! First I don’t know how you get it out there so quickly, but to see it exactly the way I do….we are one brain!! hahahahah!!!!
    Great Blog!!
    Now on to NY!!!

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

      Auntannmarie – I’m so sorry to hear you’re in pain… It’s really hard to be constantly hurting. I really appreciate your very kind words – They really encourage me. If we are one brain – I think YOU should be very, very scared! 🙂

  7. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Well afternoon now. Been busy. I hope you are having a great day.
    Hey Empress! ✋✋😃
    OMG that nasty ass Kim literally gave me a migraine last night. I had to take my meds. I’m a late owl but I even went to bed early. Sighhhhh! I tweeted this and posted this on the blog last night:
    If Kim and Brandi are back next season I’m O U T!!! #TheyHijackedOurShow

  8. chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

    morning yall!
    I have NOT watched BH yet- just saw the end where i found it SO OBVIIIIIIS who Andy wants back and who he doesn’t. i had to binge Justified’s finales.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Empress- thanks for blogging NY- i hope things are doing well for you and your family. ❤

    My home is literally a hotel- people coming IN and OUT always constantly and seriously- if people come to visit and they are hanging with others – OF COURSE they can go- THIS ISN'T a gestapo- but of course the courtesy is to ask us. We're not demanding to be asked, it's just courtesy.
    Same goes for staying at Hamptons houses of friends- we do the same schtick. Cozy houses or not 😉 LOLOLOL

    I'm sorry i guess i'm minority and not just because i am finding her so incredibly abrasive and just bristley at being back- but i found the room change when Beth entered. I thought everyone was doing just fine and then she just cooooooled it all down with her machine gun fire. I didn't find it fun or easy breezy. And i didn't find Ramona being super sensitive- as much as i would SO very much expect her to be especially this season, especially having sonja staying with her!
    But, i guess that's just me.
    And again, NOT bc i don't care for her.
    Plus i don't care for Heather and I thought she was being 'fun' and trying to be cute when talking about seeing the LOU note in Beth's book/ advanced copy to her about helping her create the drink. I don't think Heather was being anything but trying to break the cold cold iceberg of bethenny's heart.
    B couldnt handle the women all talking and clearly forgot what THE EFF SHE SIGNED UP FOR AND LOWERED HERSELF TO so she bolted. ByeAshy!
    I think editing made it seem she stayed a while at the party and methinks she only stayed like 20 minutes. I wonder. Have to analyze the epi. again. I think she wants to show off whatever property she bought?
    I didn't know B had bought something out east? Does anyone know about this? She's so 'over' the Hamptons- as per every TALKING HEAD OF HER SEASONS AGO when she was in these lower classes of HWs- so i'm supposing she's in Montauk? She's going to make these people drive out an 1hr or so to see her house?
    Maybe she bought in Amagansett or Wainscott- or those towns that don't have "hampton" in the name but are considered as such just so she can't say she's 'hamptons' for all the $hit she threw at that years ago.
    How did i not read about her purchase in the local papers? This is odd.
    I need to get all TRexy about this….
    I told my friends i was getting them a filming schedule of The Affair so they could stalk all summer long as they film, so i'll add this on to that.

    Why is Sonja missing ? Where did she go? What happened? I'm confused? That house is SO not large enough for her to have gone far and there were a LOT of people there.
    I'm happy Ra had her friend with her- the male friend, and Dorinda. Loving Dorinda.

    I'm sorry, Carole can meet men a bit older than that kid that was there. If he dated LOU's nieces- that makes him mid-twenties LEAST…. #gross
    sorry, just me. Maybe he can make her and Bethenny a BURGER! 😆

    thanks for the 'CAPS!!! ⭐ 🌯

    • JumpTheShark says:

      The blogs here are GREAT, but the shows are toxic. I agree that the room changed when Beth entered. Beth seemed so aggressive, perhaps her brain is running on adrenaline, from being in a constant state of near starvation. IMO she needs to stop being a fame whore, chill, eat a burger and get a hobby.

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

        Thanks, JumpTheShark – These shows really have “jumped the shark,” no? lolol

      • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

        exhaustion from brain on adrenaline from starving haha

        • JumpTheShark says:

          I enjoy the Lynnfam”, but the women on these shows…not so much. Where did the fun go? If the goal of these shows is for me to be grateful for my own life while I pity the “wealthy”, then: mission accomplished! Viewer must sift through piles of B.S. for the occasional gold nugget (ie: Lu being nearly bucked by a camel)

  9. Stars this is the ‘bestest’ blog ever and I love the interjections provided by you in the format you chose. Just think, if I hadn’t watched the whole ugly mess on TV last night, I could have shut the season down by just reading your blog and been happy and not have the crappy taste in my mouth that I ended up having as the credits rolled at the end! Just spectacular…you have been such a blessing blogging this show!

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

      Thanks so much, Reality_Bytes – As you well know, it’s not always easy to figure out how to best present the volume of information that we deal with – So I’m glad the format worked for you. Please know that I’ve sent some peppermints to you in the mail to help get the bad taste out of your mouth. 🙂

    Botched-watchers:

    I haven’t watched yet— i like Dr. Paul—- i don’t really sit to watch this show- however- did you know there is some show called Good Work or something like that on E- with Rupaul hosting and Sofia Vergara’s niece or something (not so great looking 😮 ) and Dr. Dubrow/ Terry/ whatever his name? Man he is a famewhore that is for sure. But i mean- if he seems to continue to have business- he can’t be bad right?

    Anyway— the DESCRIPTION i saw yesterday said guest: BRANDI GLANVILLE.
    LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
    i wonder if they were to get her to admit to anything she’s had ‘done’ and all she’ll say is ‘fillers BIT$H!!!’ LIES!
    someone on some blog once said she had a thread lift?? Don’t know what that is….
    She needs Dr. Paul to fix her super bad nosejob. He seems to be a picasso when sculpting noses. i find good rhino plasters (i made this word up i think) true artists.
    Terry is into boobs right??

    Anyway, thought i’d tell you all.

    And i have a question about The Royals- for anyone who watches—- i dont watch, i tune in for the E ticker and the soundtrack but i love the guy Elizabeth Hurley is having the affair with and i have a quick basic questionnaire. LMK if anyone sees this —– #beacon#

        ok:

        first off HI!!! and are you all packed yet!!!!!????

        Who is the Jasper you speak of???

        My ? is:
        The guy who seemed to go shooting with the king- said ‘long live the king’ looking like was going to shoot the king- is he the brother of the king?
        I saw him in bed with a guy? Then on another night he’s hitting on the servant lady who the king seems to pine for/ love – ??? So is he bisexual? Playing games, etc. – is he brother to the king? Is that Jasper?

        The daughter—–> is having an affair with her driver/ security guard??? big whoop.

        The son/ future king (if monarchy is not abolished)- loves the “ophelia” 🙄 – american-accented girl-

        And Elizabeth Hurley is having an affair with some blonde hottie.

        That’s everyone- right?
        Just to clear it all up. In a nutshell.

        thanks felicia

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Jasper is the Pricesses body guard and they started their affair because he was black mailing her-now they have some weird sex slave relationship that is fabulous!
          The long live the King dude is gay straight whatever-he’s greedy!! He’s gross and will screw anyone -he’s also always high-ALWAYS! But he’s dangerous and sneaky!
          The guy EH is having an affair with is from her younger days-he was the “hired help” back then and she loves him-she’s a horrible bitch to everyone except him!
          Ophelia is the daughter of the head of security-she’s lovely and the Prince loves her-but she’s a “commoner” so he’s conflicted and so is she.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Oh and The Long alive the King guy (Cyrus) is the brother of the King

          • I don’t “do” soaps 🛀- so I don’t know how I’m handling RHOBH – I know – but this does sound good.
            That jasper sounds very christian grey-ish. Yum !!
            Why do the young gals there all wear such cheesy makeup and clothes ?
            Like beyoooooond cheesey 🍕🍕

            #stopwiththeblackeyeliner

            Thank you for all this !!!

        • Viki55 says:

          The guy shooting with the king is his younger brother, Cyrus. He could be bi-sexual but I think he is gay. He is blackmailing the man he is having sex with. He only gets BJ’s from the servant girl. The daughter, Princes Eleanor, is being blackmailed by her bodyguard, he made a sex tape of them after he drugged her. The prince, Liam, is liking Ophelia, the daughter of the head of the royals security. The Queen does not want Liam with Ophelia. The queen is having an affair with Jasper, whos name in real life is Tom Austen.

          • Viki55 says:

            opps, Jasper is the princess body guard. I am not sure who the queen affair guy is yet.

        i.e.

  11. Empress, I think taking on 8 housewives to blog about in episodes jam packed with twists and turns is insane and yet you pulled it off flawlessly ~ zillions of kudos on the blog!

    I think we may see a softer side of Ramons-cray-cray-eyes, but we won’t see a more sober version this season, or any other season she is in. I like Carole (just starting to read her book); Kristen will always be the flighty one; Sonja will always have everything be more about her than anything/anyone else; the Countess is just being her normal self I think; I like Heather and always have; my jury is still out on Dorinda (in a good way) and I thing Bethenny has gotten off to a rocky start from the get go with her “Homeless” remark that I truly believe she meant ironically, and I hope she hits her stride soon or she really may have regrets in coming back ~ I was always a fan of her bluntness and cutting edge wit, but we shall have to see.

    Again great job Empress!

  12. plainviewsue says:

    I will read RHONY soon, but I just have to comment on Stars SUBERB job on the RHOBH reunion (and all blogs of the season).

    You are such a great writer. Seriously, when you recapped the convos between Kim & Kyle, my stomach got into the same knot I had when watching it.

    It was so disturbing to watch Kim; I wanted to smack her. Sober Kim is a nasty self entitled beeyoch. My heart broke for Kyle, and I am not a huge Kyle fan.

    To quote Yolanda “Who is Kim Richards in this world?” She can dictate what can and can’t be said at the reunion? She can throw out jabs and innuendos but not explain what she is talking about? What happened to Kingsley destroyed her? Stars, you summed that part up perfectly.

    Kim is afraid of Rinna cos of that text? Well how about your best friend Brandi verbally threatening your sister?

    If Bravo thinks this is what we want to watch, they are sadly mistaken. I loved RHONY last night. I was cracking up at the Is Ramona Italian conversation. I loved the time in Lu’s new home. Bethenny was right. This was vintage Housewife. Drama, peppered with laughter. Not drunken reality whores or sisterly fighting.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Stars99: just read your blog. So good. So fast!!! You made me laugh. I like where you pointed out that Rinna said “Thanks” at the end of her “text threats”! Haha!

        Thanks so much, LaineyLainey So Nice We Say it Twice – I’m so glad you laughed – Isn’t that what it’s all about? lol… I think it’s just good etiquette to be polite when you threaten someone… I mean, we’re not barbarians, are we? I’m sure Lisa R’s pinky was extended whilst she typed the text, too. 🙂

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

      PlainViewSue – You are always so great to me… I really appreciate your kind words. It’s tough to watch these shows without having a physical reaction to their wackidoodleness, no? It was quite disturbing and I can only hope Bravo realizes that we don’t want to see this kind of drama.

    Who has lawsuits filed against them as we speak?
    Kim and Brandi
    One for a dog and one for a pussy.

    • T-Rex says:

      Oh here is the update on the KrupaKupcake lawsuit, note that they filed for and received an order of protection against THELIARSUPREMESSLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONSTFUBrandi. As of last week, and the idiot was give a “stay” regarding discovery, it’s a stall tactic but the case is moving forward. Interesting that KrupaKupcake won that protection order in a five minute hearing.

    • Ha ha! Ain’t that the truth!

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

      Thanks, RamonaCoaster… Lisa R cracks me up…lol

  14. Exit4 says:

    I don’t like the P word-but when Lisa said she was going to take her P word to the baaaathroom, I had to laugh.

    There were certain moments when Kim resembled the crypt keeper.

    If Brandi returns I will not! She ruined this show. I hope Kim doesn’t return either. She’s truly awful. No soul.

    • T-Rex says:

      It will be interesting as to what will happen, I know they CLAIM that she has this idiotic following, but every blog, and any articles written about the BHills almost 90% of the comments are how much everyone hates THELIARSUPREMESSLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONSTFUBrandi and wants her gone. They only place that has seemingly folks that like her is twatter.

      • Exit4 says:

        It’s sort of like politics, the loudest voices get all the attention and it makes it seem like the support is there. When the candidate or party loses people don’t see how! Brandi was a huge loser this season when some of her supporters turned on her. Her fans are infighting. Jill is the go to for that crazy! She’s been following and called it from day 1! But you’re right, the responses to her are very negative. I can’t imagine any scenario where they’d keep her. I really can’t. She can’t even argue ratings, they always spike, in every franchise, when a fight happens and bravo knows this. Unless they want Beverly hills to die-she’s done! 🙏

  15. California35 says:

    I will read BH later, but I want to tell Starts THANKS in case I read it too late to comment.

    THANKS Empress for the NY recap. a very light episode with too many woman. Everyone is noticing Ramona is softer side, but then Bethenny enters the room and then everyone can see we still have out Ramonacoster haha. The argument was still not too bad, so I am ok with NY. I like Luann’s new house, Who cares if it is small to some of the wive’s stabdards? It is nice and by the lake and nice inside and out. I always like Ramona’s too. Is this a house we had not seen or is the angle of the view Bravo is showing us deferent?

    I HAVE to mention something that is annoying me the # talk on those two Heather and Kristin. #stop lol next thing we know they will be doing the Jimmy # thing where he adds the hands and fingers to the # talk. Hahaha

    • What’s the Jimmy thing ?

      Yes. When they were filming – saying “hashtag” was all the rage.

      I almost feel like ON FLEEK is OUT NOW.

      Move it along ladies ……

      (Ps I love Lu’s new smaller house / cottage – I am just shocked it’s so close to the houses next door and im intrigued to find out prices ….she just still annoys me so I cant ❤️Her yet. #neverforget)

      The interior of RA’s house – that guest room was fantastic ! We’d never seen that. We’ve only seen the kitchen, foyer, backyard.

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

      You’re so welcome, California35 – Hope you found time to do things you want to do today and that you had way too much fun for words! 🙂

    • T-Rex says:

      Chisy, I posted this yesterday or the day before. OverpricedOvermortgagedMonstrosity went back on sale, as I noted when it came off the market, they may have done so to change realtors, which is what they have done. Here is the interesting note though, they have not been paying the mortgage on that house for months, so at some point the bank will be placing it as a foreclosure. I can’t believe a Realtor took this listing at that incredibly stupid price, uhm it didn’t sell at that price with the last listing agents, why would you think it would under a new listing agent? They have done NOTHING to enhance the properties, and now that the snow has melted you can actually see more of the junk and debris lying around and note that there is NO landscaping what so ever. A NUMBER of realtors that have toured the home inside have noted that there are LOADS of issues inside the home that need to be fixed, and lots of unfinished items everywhere. So time will tell whether someone buys the home, with all of its liens, and judgments or whether the bank takes over in a few months

      • Exit4 says:

        I think it’s well priced. Under 3, which is too much (the famous 999!) but with more then enough room for negotiation. That’s the key. If you price too low-it doesn’t benefit you. Let the buyer be the one to try to do that, everyone needs leverage. That’s a rule for any home, really. You never sell your self short. It will still be a tough sell regardless.

        • T-Rex says:

          If they priced it a 2.4999 I would bet they would get very close to that ask point, I have looked at the comps and their home doesn’t warrant an almost 3m price point, not for the condition of the property and home. Exit have you read the interviews of the Realtors that have actually been in the home and the property? I read them after the open house and not one realtor had nice things to say about the home, that’s when they immediately dropped the price the first time. The major issues are the fact that they built on to an existing home, of course for tax purposes, but that you can TELL that they did this, all the other homes in that price range are brand new homes. PLUS the landscaping alone would cost almost 100k according to several realtors, PLUS they have JUNK everywhere on the back of the property, worse than anything seen at the Mego’s/ I am not well versed in Jersey Real Estate, but in Florida many homes sell at their full ask pricepoint, no price negotiations.

    Oh Empress! Right off the bat, you cracked me up with your “in a Van down by the river”. So FUNNNNNNNNY. THANK YOU.

  17. Foxymel(Mel) says:

    Thank you Starzy for the wonderful recap! I didn’t have to watch the reunion because you perfectly recapped this crap show! I even got sick to my stomach because you captured Crypt Keeper(Kim) and Puppet Master’s(Brandi) vile behavior.

    Thank you empress for blogging NY. I hope this season is more fun and light than what we’ve seen with BH.

    I will be having sleepless nights starting this weekend–my Spurs are in the playoffs and it’s a really long post season. Ugh

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

      Oh Foxymel – You’re so welcome… You would really have to see the show to believe it, though… It was quite wonky…

  18. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    I’m sad to see how annoying everyone is finding Bethenny and her fast way talking ..you people would not like me at all in real life!!

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      We love you already! I think maybe B needs to just take a deep breath and not get so riled up. It did seem like she was there for a whole 5 minutes and realized we was above the show and took off. I swear I could feel my heart racing once she entered the room. I do think that this season will be great!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I have the same exact manner of speaking -fast and furious!! Maybe it’s a New York thing…

        • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

          bwahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

          i talk the EXACT SAME WAY AS I TYPE.
          and i’m fast and furious – tokyo drift-style too. Just my voice doesn’t have the tonal quality hers does- she’s a bit horn—–y.

          Everyone always is amazed that i type exactly how i speak in real life.
          Exclamation points and full on emojis- always. 🐻

          • TexasTart says:

            Somehow this does not surprise me at all! I would be so disappointed if you didn’t rock the Tokyo Drift in real life. 🚘 Excuse me while I drop and ROTFL!

    • Exit4 says:

      Me either! If I were to speak my posts, even the long ones-it would takes seconds. Lol

    • RabbleRouser says:

      I know I would love you, but Bethenny is Kate Gosselin with Fran Descher’s voice. Granted- is she far wittier than the rest of the cast so that if you can bare with her long enough- there is a chance you might get a laugh at the end.

    • TexasTart says:

      Well, Jill it’s too damn late to tell me that now! But seriously, I can understand Bethenny, and in a way, I like that she can deliver so much so fast, so you’re good!

      Funny thing you mentioned that because last night I had the TV on NY but was not watching. Hubs came in and said “how can you understand anything, they talk so fast and all at once! Especially that brunette, the one you said was SkinnyGirl…” I told him I could follow SkinnyGirl just fine, but not Ramona talking over her and I looked at Ramona and I swear she looked like she was on something or crazy….so I was amused at Empress’ comment that Ramona took one of Monty’s pills….lol

    • T-Rex says:

      I LOVE BETHENNY! She is exactly the same as she was from Day one, season one, I think folks maybe forget what it was like before. Her one liners slay me, and she is so quick witted and Smart. The problem I saw in last night was that Bethenny was sober when she arrived at the party and those two BSCIdiots, CraggyDrunkAssRamona and DrunkDelusionalGreyGardensSonja were already “three sheets to the wind”, I think the others were a bit tipsy, but not to the same levels, so she was coherent when CraggyDrunkAssRamona clearly was NOT.

    • California35 says:

      I love Bethenny and it does not annoys me. I can’t do it, Im not like her at all and in nothing. I still liked her though, and she is still the same. Some will just have an issue with her (wives not here) one of the reasons I think, is because they can’t keep up with her, or they can’t stay calm and collected as they want to around her. Ex Ramona, everyone (the wives) were saying how she is being mote humble and calm and bla bla. Not around certain people, ot certain situations as we just saw.

    • ladebra says:

      I love Bethenny! and her staccato way of talking. ❤ ❤

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

      lol… The Best Jill in All the Land – But do you type as fast as you speak? lol… I love being around people who talk fast – It’s just so danged efficient – You can get so much communicated in a very small amount of time. Think of how much time you’ve saved everyone in your life… I mean really… It’s a gift to the world, no?

  19. TexasTart says:

    Hey everybody! Let me see if I can catch up…..

    Thanks to Stars and Empress for the blogs today. I’m so glad Beverly Hills is over. A special HATS OFF TO STARS99, as Season 6 of Beverly Hills was especially brutal. I can’t think of a better word for it.

    Thanks to KIM, BG and Bravo for ruining a franchise we liked to watch for it’s lifestyle aspect and the fact that it had REAL HOUSEWIVES in the cast.

    ShamrockBlonde – OMIB – LaineyLove: thanks so much for your posts yesterday, I needed an extra boost.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY STELLA! Hope you had a good one yesterday. I’ve ordered 4 pair of earrings from Stella. One was larger than I expected it would be, but all were very uniquely beautiful with quality workmanship! Take a look if you have not yet, they are very reasonably priced and Mother’s Day is coming soon. Stella’s store: http://www.uniqueboutiqueofkona.com/

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

      Thanks, Tartsy – You’re right – At times it was brutal… It’s been quite a roller coaster this season with this group… But we’ve had way too much fun for words, no?

      • TexasTart says:

        Yes, my friend it was like 🎢 🎠🎪🎬🎭
        not enough 💎 ✈ 🍕
        and too much 🍷🍷🍷🍷🍸🍸🍸💊💊💊💊💊

    • stellastars21 says:

      Thank you. I actually don’t celebrate my birthday but thank you to you and everyone. I know it was Princess Pindy’s anniversary yesterday.
      Also thanks for the shout out on the website. I’ve got a lot more earrings to add so I’m reducing prices to move more inventory. My brother in law moved back home from New York and helping me take pictures. So they will be much better as I’m terrible at taking pics. Lol. Anyway it is good you pointed out Mother’s Day is coming up because I was waiting to post the new prices with the new pics but I will try to post the new prices now.

  20. shamrockblonde says:

    *hugs Empress relly hard* so good to see you beautiful – you and all your care remain in my prayers – your recap was really great! – in a van down by the river!! hahahahaha!! too funny! I missed big portions of NY due to minor drama between the twins, but from what I saw, I think I’m going to like Dorinda -still don’t care for Carole, embarrassed for Sonja, did not care for Heather advising Bethenny to buy Luanne anything – I know she was just poking her, but it was not necessary – Luann – still the etiquette queen – even Ramona apparently thinks so – Ramona – again, my heart goes out to her – I really think this whole thing threw her for a loop – and I think it hurt Avery too – her apology to Luanne seemed geniune – I missed the whole Sonja is my houseguest thing – Bethenny – again, out of breath listening to her speak – I think I have been holding my breath when she speaks and that what causes it – she just goes so fast, like she is being timed and has a certain amount of time to get it all out or something – just exhausting – was Kristen there? I didn’t see her –

    Great blog of the reunion Stars!!! loved the breakdown style too! ugh – the reunion – even the parts I did see were just – horrible – I am so sick of the Kim and Brandi show – and as I already don’t care for Andy he really annoyed me last nite – since when does Kim get to dictate topics? she needs much more than rehab – Brandi sitting there smirking while Kyle and Kim imploded on screen – what a little – well you know – really bobble? not having space cake because of a lawsuit? there is probably enough on film and twitter for Eddie to take the boys away from you – and how is it ok for you to protect the shred of your image and not set a bad example for your boys by being seen doing that on camera – something you did not mention while explaining your non-participation – and yet Kyle feeling that way about her children – that is not ok? why not tell the truth? you were peeved because everyone was being mindful of the fact that they were being filmed where their images/reputation might be called into question and no one was willing to risk that – but not you – and THAT made you in the right – hypocrites? no, Brandi – responsible adults – take a lesson – please –

    thank goodness for Gibbs – my Tuesday nite was not a total loss at least!!! – Survivor tonite!!!

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

      Shamrock – It was tough to watch at times, wasn’t it? I think that Andy was not happy with Kim last night – at all. I’m sad to see this season end – but I don’t know if I could take it another week… if that makes any sense… And… and… I ALWAYS love me some Gibbs…(Insert head slap here)… 🙂

    • mrs peabody says:

      love love love Gibbs (and Bobby Ewing)

  21. TexasTart says:

    I’m feeling better that I’m not visiting hospitals and having a full nights sleep was the best. Double click on my new gravatar pic and you can see my patient, Rocky. I probably will not leave that pic up for long because he is so embarrassed, to be wearing the cone of shame. You ought to see the dirty looks I get when I put it on! It’s just so I can sleep or a quick run to the office, not all day and night. He had two benign tumors removed, 3 incisions total and is doing so much better than anticipated. Dogs are so much more resilent than humans.

    My mother still has some symptoms, but seems to be carefully monitoring herself. She will be rather stubborn about going in, unless she thinks she’s dying because of the bad experience with the hospital – which is rather unfortunate when someone has heart issues. 😦 But you know, a loving daughter can only plant the seeds, sometimes….like getting a new doc or going to a specialty hospital. I will not constantly pressure or check on her, but rest assured I have stealth measures in place!
    Hope you all have a good day. 😀

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Poor Rocky…he looks so embarrassed wearing that come of shame!!

    • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

      Tarts i was starting to write you and BLAM the computer blanked out on me. 😮

      I’m loving the photo of Rocky- don’t you worry- he sounds like he’s doing great- and i’m so relieved to hear about your mama. This is no easy breezy issue. Big hugs, and will write to you a bit later if i don’t drift away too early. ughhhh

      Please sleep well tonight too! xxxxx

  22. TexasTart says:

    Speaking of Bethenny….she was in Austin for a book signing Sunday, but Lainey and I had to clean our bathrooms that afternoon. I’m sure she saw plenty of The Real Homeless People while breezing through town.

  23. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Great blog today!! Empress so happy to have you back!! Thinking of you often XOXO!!
    Starzy-YOU’RE FREE!! From BH at least!! Thank you for a season of laughs and great blogs!!

    I’m a little confused about a few things that were said last night on the BH reunion.
    Brandi said she didn’t eat the space cake (please let’s erase “space cake” from out minds and never hear it again) because she was going through a law suit/custody thing with Eddie? Ummmm WTF is she talking about? Eddie was trying to get custody? Is she lying/embellishing again? Is she talking about Eddie wanting to get back the money he over paid? WTF is she talking about?? Also how can she say Kyle is hypocritical for not having space cake when she didn’t have space cake either? She doesn’t know what hypocritical means? She thought Kyle was talking shit about her and that’s why she was so mad at Kyle-I can understand that but I can’t understand why she flipped on Kyle during poker night. They rode together and were having a fine time and then Brandi acted like Kyle called her a whore or something-she flipped her bitch switch quick-I don’t understand why. Why did Brandi ask everyone what they would say if Kim ate the space cake? WTF does she think they would say?? I know I would say “put the space cake down -stick to Monty’s pills!”…what a weird question!!
    Kim is insane and totally hiding something bigger than Monty’s pills-the way she acted about the dog and not talking about the dog-she’s hiding and lying and I really really don’t ever want to see her again!!
    Lisa R went too far with the crying/shut me down stuff. She should have said she was sorry and embarrassed and left it at that-bringing her Dad into it made it seem made up and phony-BUT I still love her and I still wish she got her hands around Kim’s neck!!
    I’m so not satisfied with the reunion-too many things weren’t said-no one said anything to Brandi about her age shaming crap and saying Kim was “worse than we know”…also no mention of the PATCH!! How could they not bring up the PATCH??? Whatever…it’s over and I’m glad-I had enough of it all!!

    • T-Rex says:

      You know I think that after that whole day, MzAndy had frankly just “given up” on trying to get a straight answer out of THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONSTFUBrandi and the CryptKeeperSpaceCadetDrugaddictalcoholicKim, you could clearly see him getting frustrated that they were not answering his questions. Look this is the same crap TheLUnaticZarin tried to pull and guess what, it got her ass fired. I could see the frustration that he had just trying to get CryptKeeperSpaceCadetDrugaddictalcoholicKim to come to some closure with her sister, or to at least articulate why she hated her so much, but she was incapable of that. Note, if you catch it in one of the myriad of lies from THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONSTFUBrandi, Andy actually rolled his eyes!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        He did seem to be at the end of his rope with both of hem-I think he was tired of explaining to Brandi what ever word besides fu*k meant…exacerbate was a tough one for her-I think she’s still scratching her head over that one!!

        • T-Rex says:

          Yeah, re-watch and I think if you really look at his face is he like “really really this is how you want to play this all out”, and he just gives up by the end. Fact is, he has a choice the three favorites or the two idiots, VileKyle will sign up to anything she is that “hungry” to stay relevant and on the show, even Bethenny as much as said that. I liked that Bethenny point blank brought up that CryptKeeperSpaceCadetDrugaddictalcoholicKim is mean and has been for many, many, many years and has loads of issues.

      • T- Love how you added CryptKeeper to Kim’s name! Very appropriate

    • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

      girl YOU DID NOT JUST TYPE THIS Copyrighted item:

      “Is she lying/embellishing again?”

      with regards to B!!!! LOLOLOLOLOLOL

      dude- the PATCH, SOMEONE REMIND ME — WHAT IS THE PATCH, WHERE- KIM HAD ONE? i thought this was conjecture by OMIB ???? HELP!

      AND

      • TexasTart says:

        In the BG and LR summit, where BG brought up Kim, one of the many damning things BG said about her so-called-friend is how she was wearing a patch for pain.

        If someone can remember the detail, or remembers differently, please advise…

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          Yup and I said Rut Roh.

          This was never addressed. How is this drug addict defining the parameters of what can and cannot be discussed?

          Yuck

      • VV™ says:

        I’m here Chismo. I am detoxing myself from HWs. I just couldn’t watch the reunion last night. These shows are not fun anymore. They are about bickering and putting people down. Just not fun for me anymore.

    • kit9 says:

      None of Brandi’s comments about the space cake made any effing sense. Why was she calling Kyle a liar? What was she “lying” about, exactly? Was she seriously suggesting Kyle is a secret pot head? It was so stupid! Yes, Kyle’s a major pot head and has successfully never been shown high on the show. Ever. And WHAT freaking hypocrisy? Doing things in private but not wanting to do things on national tv is NOT hypocritical. Had Kyle been condemning the other women for having the pot cake, THEN she’d be a hypocrite.

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

        kit9 – You always crack me up… And just in case you haven’t seen my comments about how much I enjoy your recaps of Brandi’s podcasts… Let me tell you that they’re awesome! I really appreciate not having to listen to them myself – More than you can ever know…lol.

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

      You’re Welcome, Jill – The Best Jill in all the Land – Thanks so much for continuing to read even when we disagree… 🙂 You actually brought up something that I intended to cover in the blog but I think I forgot to mention it… So, if Brandi is in the midst of a lawsuit with her ex… And she didn’t want to partake of space cake because of said lawsuit… How on EARTH would she think that admitting that she had smoked dope with Kyle on national TV be any different? Okay, we didn’t actually SEE her do it – but she admitted to it. It’s like she can’t think things through… So so wants to tear down other people that she can’t see that it also tears her down, too. Ugh!

      • Another great point, Stars99, Kim and Brandi repeatedly expose their own crap when they go after others. Dummies.

        I have to call out Brandi’s “peacemaker” crap, as well, which had my head spinning, as well–Exorcist-style. An edit from your recap:

        “Brandi says that more than anything – That she doesn’t want to break up a family…. Brandi tells the sisters that she wants them to be happy and that family is forever. She says that no matter what anyone else thinks that she wants Kyle to be at the wedding.”

        Except…Brandi’s blogs (heh) say quite something else, and the recent ones on the Reunion were written long after it wrapped.

        Last week “Brandi” wrote some nasty things about Kyle, starting yet another nasty Chinese Whisper of lies: she said Kyle did something “unspeakable” at the last wedding, but Kim protected her by not exposing it. But Brandi wasn’t there, so who told her, KNOWING Brandi would make sure it was spread across the tabs?

        And this is “Brandi” hoping Kyle goes to the wedding and these sisters resolve their issues? (Thanks, Ghostwriter, for keeping it real.)

  24. Prince Ali says:

    I didn’t like that LisaR threatened Kim in her text, but everything else she texted was spot on. Also, Brandi is constantly making verbal threats and Kim threatened R that she would release info regarding Harry (which was revealed to be rumor).

    While LisaR, in my opinion, is playing toward the camera, Kim did not reveal anything last night that showed her in a more positive light. Actually, I think she did just the opposite.

    I love BH for the lifestyle and parties, but if they (KR and BG) come back I’m cancelling the show from my dvr.

    • Powell says:

      I didn’t like her threatening Kim either. That was wrong. Twice during the reunion Kim basically threatened to tell LR info then Kyle info. Both instances they told Kim to tell it. What does Kim do? She backs down. Cuz she had nothing! She started it but really had nothing.
      I don’t like Brandi Glanville.
      I don’t like Kim Richards.

  25. Stacey says:

    @Stars you did a fantastic job recapping this insane reunion, thank you so much! Also, I would LOVE to hear Mr. Stars thoughts on this sh*tshow. We all know he is as invested at this point as the rest of us lol. A blog (paragraph, sentence, one word) from his point of view would be epic! Kingsley is now back home with Kim, if he ever left in the first place, and at this point I hope Kim is his next victim, she deserves a reality check from her best friend Kingsley.

    • Don’t know if this has been mentioned, as I’m so far behind in reading the blogs/comments from the last few days, but…

      Didn’t I read recently that Kim got Kingsley from Whitney…who got him from KATHY’S SON? The one who seems to be so arrogantly entitled in his behavior he not only got himself beatdown at a party last year, but he also got himself arrested for going psycho on an international airline a few months ago? Or was it the other one?

      At any rate, I have to wonder if you have a dog like Kingsley and you give him away, it’s probably because you either can’t handle him or you no longer have a place for him. What I wonder, since many people get those dogs for “protection”, is what kind of “training” Kingsley got before he ended up with kooky old Aunt Kim?

      I know sometimes those dogs are expected to be aggressive by their owners and so they’re mistreated in some dunce’s attempt to make them weapons. They can end up just being out of control dangerous, though.

      It is so shocking that Kim blames Kyle and Kyle’s daughter for Kingsley’s attack and the resulting fallout. I’m just speculating, but I wonder if Kim slipped up, wanting to tell Kyle that her daughter was drunk or high or something when she “provoked” Kingsley, but then realized she would also be telling on others and herself because they were at her house?

      What I don’t understand is why Brandi can’t look up the word “hypocrite” and apply it to herself and Kim TIMES 10,000? Everything they throw at others, between them at least one of them has done it and much worse.

    AFTERNOON ALL…
    quick observation…If Dorinda was / is such a close good friend of Ramona’s how come she’s never been to the Hampton House before now..weird..
    also..while channel surfing between commercials watching Married at first sight..lookey at what E Entertainment had on… NO..I did not watch… had more pressing things to watch… lol
    http://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/news/brandi-glanville-confesses-her-plastic-surgery-mistakes-on-good-work-2015144
    and supposedly Heather Dubrow goes under the knife on BOTCHED… lol
    hugs and peace
    diva

    • T-Rex says:

      I caught that as well, I think she is one of those “we have been on the same charity” committee kind of friend. I would think Dorinda is more closely tied to HeatherT, but we shall see. I like Dorinda though, she seems to tell it like it is!

    • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

      Hi Diva- yes i said above on some new show on E called “Good Work” or “Hey, Nice JOB ON THOSE BOOBS!”- Dr. Dubrow, Rupaul, a Vergara relative are on – it’s i guess the new fashion police of plastic surgery– and i saw Brandi’s name as a ‘guest’.

      For her to say she has good work- that’s beyond hysterical.

      Her nose needs Dr. Paul ASAP

    • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

      also just thought of this– but Dorinda goes to the Berkshires – so – the people who flock there from the city vs. going out east to the Island- it’s a big difference- so maybe they just never coordinated.
      Plus their daughters are in different age-ranges- and also Ra was a married woman before- Dorinda may have been in her single stages? I don’t know, just speculating

      #asalways

      Just passed what i THOUGHT was ramona’s apartment but i don’t see CROWN CLEANERS nearby!!!! what the hell!??? i’m busy looking for her!!!!

    • T-Rex says:

      So I read that article shall we also pull the numerous upon numerous articles wherein she states she has had virtually NO plastic surgery, she has gone on WWHL numerous times and stated point blank that she has had some botox and only did fillers one time, but had no other surgery, then she had to fess up and say yeah she did have a boob job. UGH, again, LIES LIES LIES LIES LIES LIES LIES

    • Powell says:

      I’m watching Good Work on E now. Booble Bobble Head is up next to dish about her plastic surgery(ies). Whatever she’s done she needs to stop.

  27. T-Rex says:

    Okay, something I have brought up before but will bring up again, this is regarding LuManHubcapppurveyorExtraordinaire and her “mothering” skills. First off, she is not one of my favorite housewives and hasn’t been, maybe this year will change. HOWEVER, I don’t get the dig at her about her being a part time mom. Her children, like many, many many children who are born of wealth have been attending boarding schools their entire schooling careers, their father went to boarding school and it is a custom in their family for children to do so. So, I don’t get that whole dig at her about this. I don’t hear folks slamming DrunkDelusionalGreyGardensSonja for her daughter being in boarding school, and that same child spends more time with her father, then she does with her because the school is closer to his home. Many famous and rich folks send their kids to boarding schools.

    • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

      i think this to me— i’m just saying a ‘feeling’ i get about Luann– and i don’t believe her kids went to boarding all through HS. Was Vicki at b.s. the entire h.s. run? Didn’t she change schools or whatever? Son was walking to school when they were in the townhouse and i thought he went to h.s. in the hamptons.
      I’m not knocking it or anything- especially as that was her family’s custom. However i’d be like Ramona and never want my kids to leave me!

      But that’s not everyone- i get that. Where i live everyone sends their kids away for freakin’ 8 weeks at a time in the summer and there are balloons and ‘Welcome Home!’ things all over the place in August. Where are these kids!???? I only did day-camp- couldn’t handle sleepaway camp (yes, i have issues??? O_o )

      I just don’t love Lu and don’t get the warm and fuzzies from her with regards to her kids.
      Plus i’m sorry- it WAS reported in various outlets how she and the count were acting out PRE-SEPARATION.
      At least the full-on proven/ witnessed Mario salaciousness was immediately preceding the separation with Ra. Ma-Ra never seemed to inflict this (in public/ witnessed) while Avery was young and in school. jmo!

      I never knew anything about Sonja’s daughter being away- because Sonja always said she did homework and stuff at the 3/4 pm time – that was ‘their’ time together-
      I truly never knew anything about Sonja’s daughter’s school- all news to me o_O
      IAll i DO know is T-Rex hates her!! LOL

      • T-Rex says:

        The information regarding DrunkDelusionalGreyGardensSonja made note that her daughter was in school in Connecticut, and is in a school close to her father. Haven’t you ever noticed that she is out ALL THE TIME, and unless that kid is raising herself at home, she isn’t there most of the time. This is also why her child support was cut by the courts years ago. Oh and I don’t HATE her, I dislike her, I hate lying and so anyone so blatant about is I just cannot stand and will bust their ass at every turn!!

    • Powell says:

      I don’t remember then going to boarding school. When Lu started dating Ross she left the kids in the Hamptons during the week and stayed in the city to be w/Ross. She was renting hotels on the show. She would go to the Hamptons on the weekend.

      • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

        i remember the daughter was visiting schools— they had sat down to dinner at the townhouse- and the count had his friend over– and the count said –” you don’t know WHERE i could take you next year, it could be thailand!?!!!!” — (i remember fondly because he sounded exactly the way my father speaks and all my friends reminded me of this constantly)— so Vic was visiting schools – remember how she was not sure about the one with just girls because it would make her a lesbian – or Noel said that? And they were all laughing at that? And she liked another because it had a good riding program.

        Then— i think after the separation- i think they were packing her up to go away… to school. And we saw her come home for a visit to see her mom and they went shopping for clothes and a manicure. Then she was back to school.

        • mrs peabody says:

          I thought her and Alley went to the same school at one time, remember the party they went to and the 2 girls were sitting there talking together. They went to the same school but were in different grades as I think Vic was older. I know Jill and Lumann took them to a party one time.

  28. Powell says:

    I’m watching the last 15 minutes if Botched. Did anyone watch?

  29. Powell says:

    I’m now watching Good Work. Rupaul’s show on E!. Terry Dubrow is on and Booble Bobble Head will be on.

    • Powell says:

      They showed a pic of Gerard Butler. She said been there, done that. I think he’d say been there, done that, regret that.
      She had boobs, vaginal rejuvenation. Eddie told her “it” wasn’t the way it used to be so she did it. She did fillers, botox. She made some mistakes. It’s hard to watch yourself age on tv. Plllllll. And Lisa, Kyle, LR and Eileen are menopausal mommas. 🙄

    Amazing blogs ladies!

    Nice to see Empress!

    …van down the river…

    Best. Line. Ever.

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

      Thanks, OMIB – Isn’t it great to have Empress back?

  32. OneMoreInBoston says:

    BTW- I was always a HUGE Bethenny fan. But now?

    She seems more narcissistic and overbearing than ever before. The broker- Frederick? Telling her he wanted children via surrogacy only so she could turn it AllAboutBethenny. Saying she’s homeless? Even if I “get” what she was saying- that’s not even a 1st World Problem, that’s a 1% Problem.

    She lost her talk show because IMHO, the ratings dropped because she wouldn’t listen, and made everything about her- when will she (and Bravo) learn?

    Ugh.

    Another franchise that has become unwatchable? Maybe.

    • California35 says:

      the homeless thing I totaly got .. No problem, when talking about her home/house is where he lives, also no problem. …. but yeah the talk about a baby? That was weird, i guess it is on her mind. I just didn’t think she did or that she would mention that at all. I did get what she was saying though about feeling in limbo and like who knows what the future will bring… In general to be in a relationship, to have children when she is not even done with the last one. But the whole scene was just too poor me and i did not expect that at all. I hope that it was something to talk about and get out of the way…not bringing it up again or making it her story line for the season. I want to see her get on worh her life, have fun, continue with her business, get her new house (s), travel around the world. Whatever, but enjoy the millions girl, you have earned it.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        Another Histrionic Personality Disorder?

        We can all have fun as long as it’s about Bethenny. If it stops beings about her- then there will be no fun for anyone.

    • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

      with you.

      I’m in for Ramona/ Dorinda and Holla vs. Beth hijinks.

      And i guess the smooth sounds of the bikin-clad Barry White saying “be cool, don’t be all uncool” — when we KNOW YOUR COUNTESS ETIQUETTE BULL$HIT WOULD SOOOOO LOOK DOWN ON THAT years ago. #hypocrite #correctuseofthewordBrandi

    • Agree. It’s not Bethenny’s rapid fire speech that bothers me, it’s her rapid fire narcissism. She was so arrogant as she went into the group at Lu’s party, it was ugly. Her deep-rooted insecurities seem to undermine her in everything.

      It must feel like eating crow since she said many times she had moved on.

      What’s odd is that she seems to expect that they all pay deference to her because she is the big dog. “HER” home in the Hamptons, “HER” international brand which she wants to take from HUGELY SUCCESSFUL to THE BRAND OF A LIFETIME. Ha ha! The woman could not be more full of herself.

      Well, maybe she’ll settle down. But I am already sick of her self-defined image of homeless, Oprah/Bill Gates-peer level mogul.

      • Foxymel(Mel) says:

        👏👏 Apparently she said something on WWHL that it didn’t matter how much money she has– her homeless struggles are the same as anyone else’s. Oh goodness.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          No no no….she did not say that! She said that no matter how many “Benjamin’s” she has- her pain is real. If people hate her for that I’m good with it-but she didn’t say her homeless struggles are the same as anyone else’s.

        • Yeah, right…uh, no, Bethenny.

          Some think Bethenny was just trying to be witty with her homeless labeling: maybe the first time…but by the fifth time and all the tears, it didn’t seem that way to me. It seemed like yet another way to throw shade at Jason. Period.

          She has an agenda: to shame him publicly. That’s clear to me. She’s bitter that she couldn’t run him out of THEIR home. Bow to the Queen of HW Brands or BE GONE!

          But it’s the worst kind of insensitivity, Bethenny. Sleep under a bridge or on a warm utility grate to survive freezing temps for a few nights, and it still won’t be close, as you know you’ll being going somewhere quite lush and comfy when you’re tired, dirty, and scared.

  33. Great Reunion Recap, Stars99! I was with you all the way.

    I don’t blame LisaR for anything she did or said, as she was run into the ground by Bravo, Kim, and Brandi all season long. Many times Kim did speak so rudely to LisaR, attacked her husband, even brought up HER children. Brandi set Rinna up, lied about her concern for Kim by omitting that Brandi herself ramped up Rinna’s concern, throwing Rinna under the bus while Brandi painted herself as so innocent. Brandi stated herself she was worried about Kim, Kim had a patch, how could anyone not know Kim was in trouble, and “more than you know.”

    And Bravo ONCE AGAIN did their editing critical details out when they don’t want to settle an argument that has a definitive answer: Brandi not only brought up Kim first, at her lunch with Rinna, but Brandi said MORE than Bravo is showing in the clip they used, cutting off the SPECIFIC WORDS at the end which laid out what BRANDI’S INTENTION in mentioning a “group intervention” was: approx., she said to Lisa, Why don’t YOU organize an INTERVENTION FOR ALL OF US…”SO NONE OF US HAS TO BE THE BAD GUY.”

    That’s clear to me: Brandi was encouraging Rinna to be the ORGANIZER for ALL of them TO PARTICIPATE IN, so Kim wouldn’t be angry at ONE of them for doing it–particularly, Brandi, I’m sure she was thinking.

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

      Thanks, WhiteTrashGirl – I know some people have soured on Lisa R – But I still find her highly amusing and entertaining. She would be the first to acknowledge that she might be a little crazy at times – But aren’t we all? Kim was pissing me off last night so much… but I didn’t want to be overly heavy handed. I suspect that Andy isn’t happy with Kim… and I highly doubt that Kyle will go to bat to keep Kim on the show… So I wonder with Kim gone… What will Brandi’s storyline be? And who will actually film with her? lololol… Bravo has a mess on its hands…

      • That’s the most interesting thing about this group right now: when the Gay Gods’ move the clouds to reveal who is left standing….

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I have been a little (a lil bit) critical of her (Rinna) at times. But usually it’s been after seeing her being immature and combative on social media. Oh and when she didn’t have Kyle’s back on the show and then proclaimed to Kim “I love you”… I had moments of ARE YOU KIDDING ME? But I haven’t completely turned against her. I would like her to come back. I admire her work ethic. She works non stop, you gotta admire that. Well, I do.

        • I agree that Rinna had her bad moments. I really don’t think she ever expected to be attacked, patronized, and dimimished like that, much less on the job, on camera. I’ve actually had to work with someone who was as irrational, hateful, and demented as Kim before, and I can tell you it puts you in a state of defensiveness and fear that takes you to a dark place, as Eileen pointed out so eloquently.

          One thing we seldom talk about is Bravo’s unspoken approval of this on-the-job harassment and abuse. It’s wrong. It really is. We’ve grown to accept it and blame the women–which they have to own their part; but their employer is pointing the camera and writing the checks.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            I like that comment so much, I’m gonna pretend I wrote it.

            I WROTE THAT, YA’ll ^^^^^^^

          • Exit4 says:

            I’m sure both eileen and Lisa R have dealt with a lot of prima-donnas throughout their years in the business. I don’t believe either of them have that rep though. But when the cameras turn on, it’s professional. They obviously knew these shows have a different type of drama, but if you’ve never experienced it yourself, like you said, it overwhelms you and you’re in a state of shock. You never expect to be on the receiving end and it’s probably scarier when it’s not a scripted environment. This is who these people really are!

    • kit9 says:

      Right on every point. And, something I forgot to mention-Brandi posted several pics of her son in the hospital-unconscious actually. Did Kim think Brandi did so to get Instagram followers too?

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

    Stands up and wildly applauds Empress for a really excellent blog! It’s so very great to have you back! I know you have so much going on in your life and I appreciate the immense time and effort you give to bring us your unique snark. Thank you so much! This is going to be a GREAT season! 🙂

  35. vilzvet says:

    I still can’t stop shuddering at the extreme close-ups on the reunion, being subjected to Kim in all her sun and alcohol-damaged glory is the stuff of nightmares, in conjunction with the ugliness coming out of her mouth and witchy pointed finger. I think a new rule should be the camera people have to pull back at least 20 feet. To quote my favorite movie Tootsie, “How do you feel about Cleveland?”

  36. EmpressofAiken, well played! Just the right amount of gentle snark and absurdity which these HWs deserve. Standing ovation!
