Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Recap: Guess Who’s Coming to the White Party? [Episode 1]

Posted on Nov 19 2014 - 8:59am by BeachSpin

RHOBH

I am a happy reality world camper, because the seedy shadows of New Jersey are fading away, and the land of the broke acting rich, and the rich, sissy firemen acting broke, is long behind me.

The premiere of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” has arrived, and my first thought is…YES! Bring on the mannequin faces, ritzy homes, parties, glamour, and the REAL cash! But my excitement drops like a canyon rock when I click on the show, because it looks as though my DVR has picked up a repeat.  The opening vibe is Groundhog Dayish, because Kyle is again at work on the highlighted EVERY season, white party. The event has apparently morphed into the most coveted colorless affair in town, and simply everyone who’s anyone wants to shop for that ultimate boring white outfit that looks mega fierce on camera, especially when splotched with residue from a drunkenly plopped, Fatburger chunk.   

RHOBH

Kyle and Lisa are….you guessed it…not in a good place.  They’re both hurt, but their friendship is super worth fixing, especially since the sixth try could be the charm, and they have to film together anyway. Brandi is visiting Yolanda, and we are graced with a majestic glimpse of King David working on his latest masterpiece. Yo and Brandi prance around like awkward, middle aged gazelles, and the display is cringe worthy. Brandi thinks that Yo is the perfect woman, and Yolanda proves it, by lovingly allowing a sundress vendor part time snoozing rights on a private Foster curb, then ups the perfection ante by ramming her toes exquisitely into some wet sand. Gigi is killing it as a standout and pretty darn naked model, and Yo has mercifully snipped off her ratty, ode to Poison, clip on hair. Brandi is on rinse and repeat, by sharing that she has moved into yet another rental, and has a third book deal. She assures us that this season will be 100% positive, and vows that ALL rogue tampon strings will remain hidden, especially when she’s semi sober. She slips in that Lisa is still the worst friend imaginable, but only in the most intensely positive way. Yolanda perfectly states that happy days need to occur in a conscious state.

RHOBH

We hang with Lisa for a few, relive the horrible way she was treated last season, and then watch Kyle, with a first episode spring in her step, breezily arrive to meet Lisa for lunch, presumably to resume exactly where the duo left off, at the conclusion of part 7 of last year’s reunion.  Pleasantries are exchanged, and they agree that they want to move forward, and past the bitchiness. Two seconds later, we flash to Kyle acting like a bitch in her talking head, while staying plunked in her same, worn out, needy spot, whining that Lisa never admits wrongdoing.  She just wants the funny, beautiful, and smart Lisa back because apparently Lisa was quite the opposite of those last season. The broken record continues when she complains that her feelings were hurt during the reunion, part 7, even worse than during parts 1-6.  They agree to not talk behind each other’s backs, and definitely not before they leave the restaurant.

RHOBH

Time for some fresh material, as we get our first glimpse of new housewife, Lisa Rinna. She and Kyle became pals and bonded during spinning class and while they actually paid someone to teach their kids how to be be spiritual. Lisa is famous for her massive lips, soap operas, Broadway, and her adorable husband, Harry Hamlin. We meet their teenage daughters, who are skilled at triggering their mom to thinking she’s on acid. We see cute Harry, and Lisa explains that she has set up the household dynamic centered around Harry being king, and it’s actually kinda annoying. I think I am a Lisa fan, and I hope that she rubs off on perfect Yolanda.

RHOBH

Back at white party central, Kyle rambles on about the sheer epic magnitude of her white party.  I wish she and Mauricio would sign up for a Spirituality for Self Absorbed Adults class, and get over themselves. We shoot over to my favorite spot in Beverly Hills, and that is the gorgeous closet of Lisa Vanderpump. Hubby Ken is sick of eating FatBurgers in his white tennis shorts every year, and is clearly over these Housewife ninnies. We jump to sweaty Brandi, and her clip in hair chunks, getting ready in her condo, which is temporary, but loving, due to the fact that she sleeps with her children. Didn’t we learn earlier that her oldest is going into Jr High #getreadyforpuberty? She continues the snoozy rerun, by expressing that she wants to be friends again with the very much over her, Ken and Lisa.

RHOBH

RHOBH

The party of the century is kicking off, and a mishmash of sequined performers parade in, and an array of white clothes filled with plastic people, begin arriving. We greet a puffy cheeked Camille Grammer, Taylor Armstrong, and Adrienne Maloof, along with her current boy toy. We flash back to the good times and the bad, earlier in the franchise, and it makes me miss the good old days of hidden crutches, and that evil, crazy Camille. Brandi shows up with her signature, self absorbed anxiety, because she has to face all of the women that she has drunkenly screeched STFU to. Yolanda has accepted that Lisa is someone who never says she’s sorry, and has chosen to give up trying to be Queen, simply ages ago. Excuse me…sorry for WHAT? They all embrace like they are blood sisters, and gasp over the whiteness of their dresses.  

RHOBH

Brandi feels frozen out, and blames Lisa for leading the pack, by standing in a sorta goddess like way, in an especially haughty spot. Brandi keeps the positive rolling, and nastily accuses Lisa of elderly eye rolling. Wait..what’s wrong with that? We meet Adrienne’s boyfriend, and Lisa is happy about the match up, because at least Adrienne isn’t a moody old cow, clopping around on her Maloof Hoofs anymore. Kim arrives, and sharply comments that she can’t remember if the conflict is behind her or in front of her. No surprise. 

RHOBH

Lisa and Harry make an appearance, and Lisa reflects fondly back on the special moment that she discovered that Lisa V is filthy rich. The party backdrop is sprinkled with mermaids, fire dancers, pool ball rollers, and girls randomly posing for no apparent reason.  

RHOBH

Brandi reminds us that she is acting just like a grown up, but is still addicted to petty teenage BS. We end the night with all of the women jumping around like aging solid white dancers on the disco floor, and then saying good night. Brandi reminds us once more, that Lisa never forgives, andLisa explains that she is at peace with the friend that she was to Brandi. This illustrious event was presented to remind us all of the obvious growth, maturing and the simple prioritizing that comes with age, of this lovely and generous group of women. The white symbolizes new hearts, purified by the wisdom that comes with life experiences and going through trials that make you realize that our time on Earth is too precious for petty backbiting. 

OK…I don’t believe it either!  See you next week!

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    Great recap!! Filled in the scenes I missed during my couching spell last night…damn cold!

    • Barbieland

      Hope you feel better – I have one, too. I think it’s the rapidly changing weather. 🙁

    • Yolie

      I have the same thing. This weather sucks. Feel better.

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks WaWa…feel better! 🙂

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    Great recap Beach Spin 🙂 Brandi seems like one of those people who is just a nightmare to be around. If she’s sober then she’s so whiney and negative about everything and everyone and if she’s drunk then she’s an absolute a**hole that everyone has to tip toe around. She must suck the joy out of everything. And have you ever seen a bitchier face than that of her hairdresser?
    I am getting very tired of the “Lisa doesn’t know how to apologize” rubbish already.

    • BeachSpin

      Thank you Bev! Brandi screams needy high maintenance…I would run screaming from a friendship with her.

  • Barbieland

    Brandi is outclassed and clearly in over her head. She’s too dumb/drunk to notice/care. All she wants is the $$ & fame & Bravo is having the last laugh.

  • Awesome recap! Thanks Beach. For a season opener, I was impressed, so far so good. Loving Lisa Hamlin and her clan. Lisa V was FABULOUS as always! And Brandi, how does it feel it be left out of the group? She loved it when Lisa felt left out last season…not cool. Now she wants to act weird and doesn’t understand why she isn’t included. Uh, perhaps rich people don’t like blabber mouths and you’re TRASH! Kyle, Camille, Adrienne, Lisa, Kim and Taylor…the original housewives are exciting.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      Love seeing the originals all back together. If only a big wave swept Brandi and Yolanda out to sea.

    • Jennymckitty

      When Brandi acts bitchy towards the others, she is just being honest and true to herself. When others treat her in kind they are childish and mean girls.

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Thank you Beach Spin, for a hilarious recap. It did seem , a lot of the girl’s hair was messy, except Lisa V. This will be best season, yet. Happy to see the originals back but I have to admit I was looking forward to seeing more of Joyce giving Brandi some Puerto Rican fire! We all know she deserves it especially after betraying Lisa. Bad move Brandi. Can’t wait to see how she get out of this one.

    • BeachSpin

      Hey Reality…I ended up loving Joyce..but decided that was too secure and confident for this show. Strong mental health isn’t Bravo approved.

  • Dani-K

    So funny, Beach Spin! Better than the episode! Brandi is going to have a hard time this season. Why the “temporary” condo? Does she think that we think it’s just a stopping point until she moves into her mansion? And the elderly eye-roll comment is specifically why she doesn’t have any friends on this show. As far as the white party that every is dying to go to, how many times did Kyle need to mention that? Who is she trying to convince? I am looking forward to Lisa R and Harry this season. At least he accompanies his wife to events – unlike King David who rarely shows up with Yolanda.

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Dani! That party was just ridiculous. I think Lisa R could be fun…I’m with ya.

  • Jennymckitty

    Brandi has been busy since her first season establishing her “brand”. She has written two books based on her promiscuity & bashing her ex. She has a podcast where she has said she was sorry she wasn’t molested as a child in hopes of making her the next Howard Stern. She has been photographed numerous times falling down drunk. She has come out with a STFU tee shirt line. All in all, her brand is kinda trashy.

    Then she outs former & current friends’ secrets. Outs a son for lying & calls him a ess word & little effer. Exposes her father’s past. She is a PR nightmare and a blabber mouth. And the reason no one wants to be around her is because of Lisa? Who would want to be seen as her bestie? Which one of the husbands would want her around? I wouldn’t want my name spoken in the same breath as hers.

    • Yolie

      Adrienne looked so confused when Brandi began talking. Brandi was over the top paranoid. It goes to show, you must just let some things go and un said. She seems to be a bit immature, but it is just something that she has not learned. Very hard to watch her on this show. She seems to be a train wreck waiting to happen in every season. I think my first impression was on target.

      • BeachSpin

        That scene was SUCH a stupid waste. Looks like they needed filler.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      So well said. Speaking of Howard Stern – when she was on his show she also admitted dating an older guy she didn’t find attractive because he had a plane and that she had to get drunk before doing the deed with him. Then she accuses Joyce of being married to an ugly fat guy and that she only dates hot guys.

      • Jennymckitty

        I didn’t hear about that. After she called out the editor at ROL for doing coke around her sober friend I haven’t read a single story about her. It is really funny. You know she misses it.

        • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

          ITA. And what’s the difference between that and Brandi getting drunk all the time around her friend Jennifer and Kim? This is what I hate about Brandi. She sticks the knife in to people for things she does herself.

  • Yolie

    I fast forward when it comes to Kim and Kyle, their stories have run their course. Brandi needs therapy, I would be happy to see her get that. Adrienne is scary looking now and I really don’t believe anything she says after watching her and that nasty cook tear others apart. Taylor needs to go back to Colorado and stay there with her new husband. Yolanda is there, I would rather watch her husband just play the piano instead of listening to her tell us how wonderful she thinks she is. I miss Joyce and her amazing clothes. Lisa is the only reason I watch this show, I admit that. She does need to understand certain words here are taboo and vulgar; she has been here long enough to understand polite society considers the p-word offensive and lower class.

  • Birdie11

    Brandi’s in the same exact spot as where we left her…so needy, too bad Yo practically begged for her friendship, so now and David are stuck with her. Let the cringing begin. I’m with Ken, this party always looks gaudy and pretentious. I just can’t with Adrienne…BLECH.

    • I’m happy Kyle dumped Brandi also. I’m sure Mauricio told her, keep her away from us, she could ruin our business reputation.

      • Jennymckitty

        Exactly, Doc. I can’t imagine David is thrilled with Yolanda being friends with her either. Anytime she gets pissed at you and has a drink, she says the most vile things about people. Some she knows aren’t true.

        • Birdie11

          You can almost detect a cringe on his face whenever he has to greet her…he is not a good actor.

        • She sure does. She already crossed Yolanda when she repeated the vile comment about the smell of Joanna’s privates. Adriana exposed Brandi told her, Mohammed said blah blah blah! Brandi is a crass and classless troll.

      • nan/4

        Aww, really? He’s still only out to get business? That’s disappointing to read, and I respectfully disagree.

        Hope you’ve been well Doc!

        • Never stated that. All I’m saying is why would he want his wife hanging around a known troublemaker that could bring his business down. Nothing more, nothing less.

          Hope you’re well also.

          • nan/4

            Sorry for jumping to conclusions, Doc.

            Be well sweetie!
            xo

          • No worries, my love. Hope you’re having a good day. Btw…has your area been hit with the cold weather sweeping the nation? It got down in the 20’s the other night, which NEVER happens here? Have you started thinking about your Thanksgiving menu yet? I’ll start sharing my menu ideas with you all soon.

      • BeachSpin

        Seriously, who would want her trashy ass polluting their reputation for classy and high quality business relationships.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      I think Yolanda is fuming that she’s stuck with Brandi and Lisa managed to offload her and look good doing it!

      • Birdie11

        Yes! Yo made the fatal mistake of excusing Brandi’s drinking as just a cute personality trait. She’s made a cling on bestie for life.

        • And at this point, Yo is taking the stance, keep your friends close and enemies closer approach with Tampon.

  • Jennymckitty

    OT…Kenya just posted a message on Twitter. She is getting married tomorrow & if you want to be an extra, show up in wedding attire. Does anyone know if this is real or a show/movie?

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    If Brandi’s blog about the first episode is anything to go by then she is hell bent again this season on trying to take down Lisa. She’s rehashing all the terrible things Lisa does and get this – she accuses Lisa of making an inappropriate joke about cheating in front of a 5 year old. Seriously there is something very wrong with Brandi’s mind.

    • MorningYawn

      Wha???? No one makes more inappropriate sexual comments than Brandi. Pot, meet kettle.

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        IKR? She has mental health issues.

        • MorningYawn

          Maybe she and Teresa could get a 2fer session… After the incarceration, of course!

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            Haha. They need a RH Rehab show. Put all the loud mentalists on an island and see who survives.

          • MorningYawn

            I would read the recaps of that… maybe even watch it with earplugs to dull the shrieking! LOL! Taylor would be a great addition to that island as well!

  • TartLemon

    I was disappointed to see the FIRED ones back. Especially Taylor.

    • Morning Tart. I felt bad for Taylor, she obviously needs the check and still thirsty for fame. She was kissing Camille’s butt on WWHL last night. It was embarrassing.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Thanks , Beach. That’s a huge improvement over the show itself. If bravo is going to bring back the old cast, I want my favorite, Bernie, back.

    • Yes!!!!!!! Bring back the best DRAMA shit-stirrer to really get this season on & poppin’!!! Love me some Bernie the chef!

    • BeachSpin

      YW WCF…and YES!! Bring back Bernie and all the Giggy hatin’ FUN!! Maybe with Adrienne back, he will make a cameo. Fingers crossed!

      • WestCoastFeed

        I hope so. And good for Adrienne. She can still attract men who are real catches. Jacob Busch!

    • MorningYawn

      I could put Bernie in a slow boat to china and be happy. Lol!

      • Bwahahahaha! You gotta admit, he’s the queen of stirring the pot.

        • MorningYawn

          Your description could not be more accurate!

  • nan/4

    I enjoyed the show, and thought it was nice to see Lisa and Kyle laughing together. They had a very solid friendship for many years, and I would like to see them close again.

    I know it’s just me, but I happen to like Kyle and her family.

    Anyhoo, I hope that everyone at AAtT has been well.

    Nancy 🙂

    • Hi Nan! 🙂

      Missed you doll. I was also pleased to see Kyle and Lisa start off with reconciliation. Kyle is no saint but I think Brandi played a part in the fracture of the Kyle/Lisa friendship. Brandi is like poison and I was happy to see her shut out of the rich bitch club. Broke ass!

      • nan/4

        Missed you too Doc, and I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!

        Be well! 😉

      • RonnieIsBack

        *Dead*

    • Jennymckitty

      Hey Nan! Good to see you! I hope you are doing well. Countdown to Thanksgiving has begun!
      I always like Kyle & Lisa as friends. I’m glad they are working things out and from Kyle’s tweet, they seem to still be getting along.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Hey Nan I hope all is well!

    • MorningYawn

      I like Kyle too! That said, she was a bit much with how A-list her party was. I was a bit embarrassed for her. I also liked her “take that Hilton’s” by sharing that Mo was #1 realtor in Cali. Made me snicker! Love bitchy sisters!

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      Hi Nan. I much prefer to see Lisa and Kyle as friends. Kyle has the makings of a great HW if only she would cut out all the sneakiness. She has a beautiful family, fab home, successful hubs – everything I want to see on this show.

      • nan/4

        Hi Bev. It’s nice to see you, and I hope that all is well with you and yours.

        Well, I’ll tell you a little secret. About nine months ago, Kyle held a benefit in her store where 100% of the proceeds went to The American Cancer Society. Since my son lost his life to this disease, I wanted to be a part of it. I called the store and asked if I could attend with my family. They got back to me the following day after speaking with Kyle. We were all welcomed with open arms, and treated with such kindness. With all of the people in attendance, Kyle kept coming over to me to talk, and to see if I needed or wanted anything. She was so sweet to me. Mauricio spent most of the evening chatting with my husband, my son and DIL. I can spot a phony with my eyes closed, Bev. They were genuinely nice people. Very kind, and very down-to earth too.

        Anyhooooo…..I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving sweetie! 😉

        • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

          Nan thanks for sharing that – it’s nice to hear what these HWs are like off camera and the Umansky family sounds like very decent folk. So sorry you lost your son to cancer, I lost my mom too a couple of years ago so it’s something close to my heart too. Best wishes to you and yours for the holiday.

          • nan/4

            I’m sorry for your loss, Bev. This monster of a disease must be obliterated from the face of the earth. I do whatever I can to raise research funding so that someday hopefully no one has to suffer the loss of a loved one to this horrific disease.

            I know how difficult holidays can be. It’s like having a hole in your heart. This Thanksgiving, my thoughts will be with you, and all of the others here who have been affected by cancer.

            Be well sweetheart!

            Nancy
            xo

        • MorningYawn

          What a great story. So wonderful to know that they were gracious and accommodating. I am sorry that your son died from cancer. It is such a cruel disease. Thanks for sharing!

          • nan/4

            Thanks MY. You are so kind. Yes they were truly wonderful to me and my family. Both of her parents died from this disease as well, so she holds these fund raisers quite often. They are not done in front of cameras, they are done from their hearts.

            Be well my friend, and Happy Holidays to you and yours.

            Nancy
            xo

  • Trippinhhard

    Excellent recap @BeachSpin —I’m watching it tonight—I just knew Lisa and Kyle would play make up. Poor Brandi, on the outside looking in and no she’s no accepted. It her own fault, they gave her some many chances. Let the games begin
    David and Yoyo don’t look so chummy to me, and if she makes brandi angry, she will spill the beans…

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Trippin’…you’re right…the embarrassing scene between King and Yo looked forced…they don’t know how to shake their drunk squatter. 🙂

    • Hey Samra! How you doing GF??

      • Trippinhhard

        Been ender the weather

  • RonnieIsBack

    Great recap Beach!!!
    I LOVED the fact that Brandi was frozen out…Karma Bitch!!! She should have kept her bony flat azzed drunken trap shut. She and Yo thought they could dethrone the queen Lisa last season EPIC FAIL. Really funny how all these heauxs (Brandi Kyle and Yo) keep saying Lisa never apologizes, BUT WE WANT HER BACK TO BE MY FRIEND and then one by one they all ran up to suck up to her. Lisa is truly the leader of the pack and as Lisa Rinna said “a Real Filthy Rich Bish” so they betta bow down LOL…Even Andy was sucking up to Lisa on WWHL the night before.
    All she did to them was snark and work her business with a haughty air..Big deal. When Kyle needed a friend and real estate business Lisa provided it; when Brandi had absolutelyNO FRIENDS OR MONEY Lisa and Ken were there, when Yolanda needed to get on HWs Lisa supported her and asked Mohammed to do the same. Those bishes were cruel to her and it backfired.
    Ken seems like he is over the bullchit and so does Giggy. Kyle’s white party is played out and she needs to stop acting like it is the hotest tickete in town. Peeps want to be on TV..taht is the only reason why they want to attend. It looks boring.
    Kim need to go, with Kingsley…

    • MorningYawn

      I absolutely respect your opinion and agree in some counts. However, I think lisa is knee deep in the sh!t with all of them. She was fully involved in trying to make Mauricio out to be a whore last season and to belittle he and Kyle. Did Kyle earn that, perhaps, but fabulous Lisa is not innocent. She is, however, a true loyal and amazing friend until provoked.

      • Blacktea

        Yes to this! I am not a Lisa lover but I have to admit she is an amazingly loyal friend. She also never forgives a slight.

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Ronnie…and PREACH IT!!

  • Brandi is the nastiest skank of them all! For her to sit there and say she’s been “mean girl’d”, when she was the ringleader of the Scalp Lisa Party, bitch, choke on that humble pie.

    • MorningYawn

      I think she led the lisa party and was co-leader of the “let’s talk about mo-the-ho” brigade last year. Messy, dirty dirt everywhere!

  • ImaSayinIt

    Amazing recap!!! Loved every sentence!!!

    • BeachSpin

      Wow…THANK YOU ImaSayinit!! So glad you enjoyed it! 🙂

    • Birdie11

      I’m dying to know who your avi is!! Come hang with us more often Sayin!

  • nan/4

    OT: Hi everybody! I hope that you’ve all been well, and I’ve missed you! I haven’t been feeling up to snuff, but I’m taking it easy, and hope to be around again soon. I want to wish you all the happiest of holidays. Relax, and enjoy! You guys are the BEST!

    Be well my friends,

    Nancy 😉
    xo

    • MorningYawn

      Fell better, lady!! Health is #1. I hope you enjoyed your time with your son!

      • nan/4

        Hi M.Y. I’ve missed you! Thanks so much for the good wishes. If it’s not one thing it’s another…..OY! My son and DIL will be in next week for Thanksgiving, and will be spending 4 or 5 days with us. I’m so excited, but I really need to feel better soon!

        I hope that you have a wonderful holiday Morning, filled with lots of laughter and surrounded by everyone that you love.

        Enjoy!

        Nancy

        • MorningYawn

          So sorry! Thought he was in last week. Having family around is the best. We are having SIL and her fam and some friends for turkey. My parents are coming in from Jersey btw Thanksgiving and Christmas so I’m looking forward to that!!

          Rest up!!
          Xoxoxo

          • nan/4

            Thanks honey, and I hope that you have a wonderful holiday with your family too! 🙂 xo

      • Hi MY! 🙂

        • MorningYawn

          Hey mama! How goes it? Ready for turkey?

    • The holidays tend to do this. Keep thinking about your awesome family and son visiting. Go out and do some retail therapy. Your hubby may not like it but it works wonders. Love you, Nan! ♡

      • nan/4

        LOL! Retail Therapy ROCKS!!!! LOL! I don’t think so this year though. 🙁 I have an infection of some kind, and it may be the dreaded shingles virus. I’m waiting for the test results as we speak. OY! The itching and the burning and shots of pain is driving me BONKERS Doc!!!! 😮

        • WestCoastFeed

          Ooh!! Shingles is not fun. Take care.

        • OMG! I just saw your response. My uncle had that and he described it as the the most painful thing he’s ever experienced in his life. I sincerely hope that’s not the diagnosis.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      Hope you’re feeling better soon Nan.

  • MorningYawn

    I have not read the comments yet but wanted to say that I liked last nights episode. Everyone seemed happy – besides Brandi and her white party re-run. Insert clips from any of her white parties and it would have fit. For once, I thought Yo was sincere and so proud of her kids she could burst. I was a little over Kyle and how she is hosting the biggest party if the season. Kim was harmless. Lisa Rinna and Harry were cute. Lisa in her closet were divine and kens fat burger comment hysterical. It’s amazing that we go from Lisa’s closet to Brandi crammed on the floor in her condo. Not the Bev Hills criteria, have I ever mentioned that? Lisa VP will never forgive any of them and will never admit she us wrong, which is annoying. Adrienne looks more atrocious than ever, who would have thought? Camille seemed genuinely excited to be there. Taylor who? All in all, lotsa fun … For now.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Yes, MY. Almost all of the petty arguments last year could have ended quickly if Lisa could have brought herself to apologize.

      • Hey West, this baffles me, can you explain what she should be apologizing for? I don’t see what she did wrong.

        • WestCoastFeed

          How about waiting until three minutes before the party to text Yolanda that she wasn’t coming? That was inconsiderate and she should have apologized.

            Lisa said that she told production that she wouldn’t be there and then sent the text to Yolanda to apologize. People get held up and sometimes have to cancel last minute – friends understand that and trust that they are genuine.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Lisa lives an hour’s drive away from Malibu. There’s no way she did not know earlier that she wasn’t going to make it. She was inconsiderate.

            ‘m

            Lisa was at a meeting with City Hall to get permits and apparently she told the people who sent the invites on Yo’s behalf – which I assume was production, and either they didn’t relay it or Yolanda forgot (like she did Lisa visiting her). The text was in addition to already notifying whoever organized it which seems reasonable to me.

          • WestCoastFeed

            It was still too late and not gracious.

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            I think it was like Kim’s party – she said she wouldn’t be there and the text was just a “have fun, wish I was there” thing. Not actual notice that she couldn’t go.

          • WestCoastFeed

            To Yolanda it was notice that she was not coming. It was news to her.

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            Perhaps but Yolanda didn’t even invite her – she told the person who was arranging it, which sounds like this get together was completely producer led (which explains Carlton and Joyce being there) rather than the sentimental meaningful moment Yo wanted everyone to think Lisa stood up. Isn’t it odd that Yolanda makes a big deal about Lisa’s text but didn’t even invite her personally?

          • WestCoastFeed

            And it all would have ended if Lisa had just said I’m sorry to

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            Lisa did say she was sorry when Yolanda called her after getting the text. Problem is Yolanda had another agenda and wanted to us all to think Lisa was so bad for standing up this very meaningful get together. The fact that Yolanda didn’t even invite the women and this was all put other by production speaks volumes about who is manipulating here.

          • Lisa apologized for that. More than once. I hardly see this excuse as appropriate for villainizing Lisa.

          • WestCoastFeed

            It was too late. That was Lisa’s problem all season. She was too slow.

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            You’re right Seuss. Yolanda called Lisa after getting the text and said “I wish you would have called me yesterday” and Lisa said “I’m sorry”.

        • MorningYawn

          To me, she was in it just as much (if not more) with Brandi to continuously bring up the Mauricio cheating or Mauricio shady business practices on the show. I’m not talking about those stupid magazines which we will never know about for sure. I am talking about the several times last season and prior that she mentioned it. Kyle may have been a bad friend, but to sully Mo’s rep and try to bring his business into question is really low. Even Ken refused to help her trash him last year. I absolutely believe she needs to apologize for this.

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            Lisa did apologize for saying that Mauricio defended whoever had a house to sell but I do think she probably still feels he did – I think he did. There was no other explanation for treating Taylor one way and Adrienne another when the issue was the same. She did also in her TH say that the cheating rumor was nonsense but with Ken I agree that she was being a bit shady saying she can’t say for certain but didn’t she apologize for that at the reunion? Lisa defended Kyle a lot in season 1 and 2 and it was never reciprocated. Kyle has never apologized for that. I don’t think Kyle will ever apologize for telling Brandi about Lisa and Ken being bankrupt either – that could have affected their business too.

          • MorningYawn

            I agree about the bankruptcy thing… If Kyle did say that or if Brandi tried to mush her into the fray. Kyle should have defended lisa better in season 1&2. You are right. But I do t think the punishment fit the crime. Lisa may have thought that the M cheating was rubbish in TH but she did bring it up on camera waaaayyyy more times, making the TH Claim look patronizing. I do like Lisa, don’t get me wrong. I just didn’t like that bit! Of course, jmo! Hope ur well Bev!

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            I know what your saying, it isn’t a nice thing to put out there especially as they have kids old enough to read all of it. I think she knew well Brandi would use it for juice. Kyle seemed to run with it though as a storyline. All good here, hope you’re well too!

          • I hated they way Kyle dropped Lisa (her good friend) like a hot potato in season 2 for Taylor. Then tried to ambush her at the reunion with Adrienne Maloof. That was wrong.

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            So did I Seuss. Lisa completely had her back against Camille in S1 and also when Kim called Kyle a bully in a reunion Lisa jumped in and said “I won’t have that”. Lisa did the same with Brandi. She backed them when they needed it.

          • Exactly. I only remember her being a loyal friend to Kyle, Brandi, Adrienne and Yo.

          • I do see some fault in Lisa for some of the points raised in your comment.

      • Amy

        Apologies for what? For being more fabulous that all of them combined? Or the contrived story line they made up at her expense?

        • WestCoastFeed

          For not defending Mauricio over the cheating accusations the way Ken did. Kyle had every reason to be hurt about that. Lisa should have apologized.

  • TartLemon

    Are Camille, Adrienne and Taylor back for the entire season?

    • Hi TL….they’re back on a part-time basis. Friends of a hw status.

  • Chloe

    Excellent recap, thanks Beach Spin. Arg!! Brandi the ever victim, this victim manipulation strategy of hers is so used. Brandi comes across so insecure and how she plays people to try make herself look better, she should hang out with different people where she doesn’t have the need to do that and become a better person. Just seeing her on the show makes me cringe!

    • Birdie11

      Me too Chloe..I think she must only hang around people who never challenge her character, or spur her to growth. When they do, she goes ape. That’s what Lisa was trying to do and it backfired.

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Chloe! Brandi is a hot mess and I am cringing right along with you!

  • italiano bambino

    They cut alot of scenes from last year trailer. . So still believe we didn’t get the whole story behind brandi and lisa fall out Jmo… someone wanted no footage to be revealed for a good reason. …

    • MorningYawn

      AGREE! Even though she didn’t like her edit, I think Lisa came out rosier than she portrayed herself to be!

      • italiano bambino

        They edit and make it seem she was been attack and been hated by everyone but I am not buying it… there’s more into it.. i smell bs from the whole story last year.

        • MorningYawn

          Yup, yup, yup!

          • WestCoastFeed

            I like Lisa , but I am bothered by the blind adoration. It smacks of tee huggers.

          • Similar to the blind adoration for some other Bravolebrities.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I’ve never understood this need to choose sides or teams in these shows, as though they were sporting events.

          • Agreed. And just like in sports, people take things way too personal and become indignant.

          • MorningYawn

            I agree. She absolutely IS fabulous, and beautiful and hilarious… but she didn’t get to be so “filthy rich” (per Lisa R) by being saintly all the time. She has slashed and burned her fair share in her day, and probably didn’t apologize because of her power position (or because she was climbing to her power position). A little perspective is all that is needed from the viewers. The Tre Huggers are a part of the reason I don’t like Tre (she feeds them). If hope it doesn’t get to that extreme with LVP.

          • RonnieIsBack

            Well I just love her like I loved Alexis Carrington on Dynasty.
            Color me blind
            Bloop LOL.

        • Yes!!!

    • Hey Bam! I wonder why the deleted so much footage?

      • italiano bambino

        Yeah things didn’t add up. .. people are not going to be upset with someone just fir those things they try to sell us. Was more into it.jmo

        • GinaXOXO

          Do you remember what was cut out??

          Yeah, Lisa has a lot of power at Bravo, so nothing surprises me.

    • Gabby

      I know I wanted to see the conversation between Yolanda and Joyce where she claimed Yo was talking trash about Lisa at dinner. They never showed that.

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        And the conversation where Yolanda and Brandi talk about Kyle and Mauricio being blackmailed. I think a lot of scenes were cut because of the backlash against Brandi and Yolanda.

  • GinaXOXO

    Great recap!! Hilarious.

  • Gabby

    Simply an amazing recap!

    First off, I still can’t stand Yolanda and Brandi. Apparently trash attracts trash. Yolanda having the gall to claim Lisa still owes her an apology is hilarious. “I wanted you to pay attention to me”….BITCH WHAT? Get yourself a hobby.

    Secondly, for Brandi to walk in that damn party acting like anybody owed her something is ridiculous. Stop pretending like you don’t know WHY you were iced out by the majority of the women. BTW is this “I’m renting a house and planning to buy” going to be part of her storyline every season?

    Thirdly, I like Lisa Rinna, can’t wait to see Eileen and wish the originals were going to be housewives again.

    Lastly, I still adore Vanderpump! Btw…thought it was funny when Ken said he couldn’t stand to eat another “Fatburger.” Oh and Kim…Girl Bye!

  • Gabby

    Yeah, so, if Mauricio is banking like they claim, why is Kyle’s house the worst looking on the show? Just wondering…
