Trailer-for-Season-5-of-Real-Housewives-of-Beverly-Hills-Is-Exactly-the-Trainwreck-You-Expected-Video-463997-2

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills begins in Lisa Rinna’s back yard, where teen trampoline jumping and poop scooping is on the agenda. Lisa is experiencing all the teenage torture that her beloved mother had so lovingly wished for, and we learn that her childhood home is sadly being sold.  It’s necessary but upsetting, and Lisa has to head up to Oregon to retrieve some belongings. Lisa’s daughters give us a glimpse of that classic adolescent horror when they act bratty and insensitive at their mom’s plea for support, undoubtedly making their nana proud. The girls don’t understand why their mom’s response wasn’t simply “whatever” at her childhood home vanishing, and lifting boxes of 40 year old lead weight stuffed animals is just out of the question.

We jump to Vanderpump Central where the Bravo cameras have emerged from Lisa’s closet to introduce us to her pet swans Hanky and Panky. Lisa coos and giggles and just loves, loves, LOVES their feathered gay bottoms. We sit for a spot of tea with the couple, and Ken throws some well aimed shade at Kyle. They discuss their upcoming social calendar, decide to say HELL NO to Brandi’s housewarming party, but vow to catch it when it comes around again next year. Panky waddles in and skirmishes with the dogs while Lisa skitters after them, and it’s pretty adorable.

Lisa Lips is heading to Malibu, and meeting Yolanda and Eileen for lunch, hoping that the get together might kick off a friendship between Yo and Eileen. Yolanda thinks Eileen is a beautiful spirit because they both love to do things classically dutch, namely by pushing birth control onto their kids and welcoming them to use it in their homes. Eileen is relieved to have lunch with no male anatomy flying around, and they all agree that the simple life is best, because being in charge of a ton of servants is just a big pain in the brouhaha.

We are back at Kyle’s, who is in the midst of planning a barbecue. Barbecues are great, because no one expects massive wealth and eating an upper middle class hot dog is a nice prosperity break.  Kyle knows it’s hard to believe based on her hiking dialogues, but she is actually not in high school, and is planning to invite all of her conflicting friends.

We travel to Medford, Oregon to see Lisa’s parents, and all the fast food options make her daughters horrified and uncomfortable. Lisa used to love going to church, which her daughters believe explains her acute weirdness.  Maybe that’s the reason that I like her?  Medford is evidently the armpit of the west, and it’s a miracle that poor Lisa made it out of such a pit of  lameness alive.  Sorry Medfordites!   We meet Lisa’s parents, Frank and Lois, and they are darling.  We learn that her mom has lost much of her memory due to a stroke, and view some lovely paintings, done by her father. Lisa’s daughters visibly love and empathize with their ailing grandfather, and the scene is touching. We fast forward to a lunch with Lisa and her half sister Nancy, who Lisa only fondly remembers as someone who constantly smoked on toilets.  The rest of the family arrives, and they all laugh about how great Lisa is at burning rice in the microwave.

Back at Kyle’s dinner, which bears no resemblance to a barbecue, the finishing touches are being added, and the chef wants to get started on the sangria. Kyle warns the chef breezily to avoid their supply of $2k bottles of red, because Mauricio gets annoyed whenever she has the opportunity to drearily brag about the cost of a bottle of wine.  Kyle also adds that she’s still jet lagged, but it’s a just case of so much opulence and so little film, and there will be time for sleep later.  Yolanda, Eileen and Vince are headed to Kyle’sand Yo assures her that this  MUST be a very casual affair, because Eileen is actually welcome.  Back home in Lisa’s closet, Lisa is showing off her best hooker shoes, and vows to not allow Brandi’s own hooker tendencies keep her from any fun event that she feels like attending. Brandi and Kim arrive at Kyle’s as well as Yo, Eileen and Vince, with Yolanda being the only one who is remotely dressed for any sort of barbecue. Brandi shares that she is around actors all the time, mostly naked, but is mega starstruck by meeting her fave soap star.  Yolanda is peeved that she wasn’t invited to Lisa’s star ceremony, because she hadn’t been let in on the news that Lisa chose to invite only actual fun people to celebrate with her.  Brandi breaks the ice with her soap idol by yapping about her tight vagina, and Eileen is not amused by the vagina reno report.

Lisa and Brandi greet each other, and Brandi spills the real truth, that Lisa’s aloofness is a challenge that she must win, simply for the sport, not for the friendship.  Lisa isn’t interested in warming Brandi’s house, and God only knows where that tramp’s slippers have been, so it’s just too soon. Lisa isn’t sure why Brandi even wants someone around who she thinks is so horrible, but assures her that she will consider coming, if by the end of the evening she can still stand the sight of her.  The other Lisa and her mom are reminiscing in their old home, and rummaging through belongings, and it is sentimental and sweet.  We get a glimpse of an old Playboy cover while Lisa explains that her old flowery room made her a nice enough girl to pose naked and stay kind at the same time. Back at Kyle’s, Brandi and Eileen argue and make a bet about some Days character, and Eileen seems sick ofBrandi’s blather already.  That has to be a record, and it proves that Eileen is a smart cookie.

The whole group sits around the table and shares bits and pieces of their fabulous world travels, which Yo considers a snoozy career.  They banter about acting gigs, and we ricochet around the group, listening to how they all lied to get various jobs.  Eileen got crushed by a motorcycle, Kim learned to play tennis, and Kyle got rejected because she couldn’t pull off wearing glasses believably. We end the evening with Brandi clutching a struggling to be free Ken, followed by a pleading session to get he and Lisa to come to her over hyped housewarming party.  Brandi gets emotionally teary every time she sees them, but refuses to kiss their asses any longer than the amount of time that it takes to beg on her hands and knees until they get in their car. The girls gossip a few minutes longer about how Lisa never cries and never lets go of any grudge, with Brandi earnestly proclaiming that as God as her witness, just WHATEVER!  Merry Christmas to you all, and I will see you next time!

I am a coastal girl who loves the outdoors, and writing about the sneaky and silly side of reality TV. My bio is short, but my snark is endless, and I love writing for the sharpest posters in the world. Follow me on Facebook

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    I wrote part of this on the preview thread. Sorry to repost some of it but I did elaborate further.

    This show SUCKED last night and I am a far more stupid person for having watched it.

    Vyle is SO phony. I don’t believe her “perfect” life and the way she tries to be down to earth when every other word out of her mouth is how rich they are, how many Chanel bags she has, and how Portia is not going to be a spoiled brat (too late there, Vyle) all the while convincing us that she’s just the nice girl next door, instead of the mean, ugly horrid, part of the “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane” duo–(Kimbecile being the other truly messed up part). I wanted to throw my high heels at the TV!

    Speaking Kimbecile is a rambling mess who should be off this show before we see a second tragic death in this series. She’s just so sad I’m not going to say much more.

    Lisa Rinna is acting like she is still on a soap opera. She’s PLAYING the role of a BH housewife. Nothing real about her-it all looked SO STAGED.

    The one part of the show that I truly enjoyed was seeing Lisa V with her swans. She has a lovely way with animals (and with everything). All the other women could take a page out of her book. Sadly, Lisa V is not enough to save this dying franchise.

    The show last night had ZERO storyline and was soooo dumb. I am now officially over all things Bravo. BLECH.

    On another note–Happy Holidays Everyone! All of you are awesome, unlike these phony, narcissistic, two-faced HO’s.

    • chacha1

      Happy Holidays to you and all who hang on this street corner ….
      Great comment BTW … I really hate Brandi and Kyle and throw that other skeeze Yolanda in the mix of phony backstabbers

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Oh Snap–I forgot to mention her haughtiness. I can’t stand her either! Have a great one Chacha–nice chatting with you again!

        • chacha1

          You have a wonderful holiday and it is always nice chatting with you 🙂

      • twifan2

        Hey chacah1! THIS IS A VERY EXCLUSIVE we have going here, there-wherever! 😉
        I just can’t with this show anymore!
        Happy Skank-free Holidays to you & yours, chacha1! 🙂

    • twifan2

      Hope you & yours have a happy, awesome Christmas, 4Hs! 🙂
      One of these days you’ll have to a card reading on Brando for us! 🙂

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        You as well, Twi! I have never done a reading on Brando–the only HW I have ever done one on was Tre-ape. But that’s an interesting idea. After Christmas, I will!

        • fengshoe1

          Heels!
          I had a chance, yesterday, to read your readings on Tre. I responded and found the book’s author, too.
          In case you missed it….
          “Feng Shoe” -Lao Shu

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Hi Fengshoe! Yes, I did see that you responded–and I meant to respond back but have been SO busy this week. Thanks so much for passing along the book’s author. I’m glad you found my readings interesting (and I do think there are some of us who have more intuitive abilities–although anyone can improve this ability but some can REALLY improve it. Also, have a lovely Holiday and a magnificent New Year!

          • fengshoe1

            Oh, no worries, Heels! Just wished to make sure you didn’t miss it.
            I thoroughly enjoyed your readings and felt they were spot on!
            Yes, it is, imo, something anyone can learn and then practice, practice, practice. Personally, I’m best when I’m on solid spiritual ground. That’s where my evening spiritual inventory comes in.

            Many thanks and……Wishing You and Yours A Very Blessed Holiday and Happy New Year!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            I understand just what you mean–and feel the same. Thank you for the lovely blessing for our Holiday. I am thrilled because one of my very best friends is here visiting–I love him so much and haven’t seen him all year. No one makes me laugh harder. My gay husband! 🙂

          • fengshoe1

            Oh, how very nice for you, Heels! Enjoy the comfort and warmth and laughter of being surrounded by loved ones at this joyous time!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Yes! 🙂 I’m so happy. Have a wonderful time yourself! 🙂

          • fengshoe1

            Thank you, dear Lady!

        • twifan2

          Thank you, 4Hs.
          I’m curious to see what the cards say about her. You might have to get a new deck after reading her! 😉

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            True! They will have Trampi Brandi cooties on them!

  • chacha1

    regarding Lisa V …..PR was brutal to her and Ken so why do I see a clip for next week showing her going to Brandi’s party?

    • italiano bambino

      because she likes to play the game but doesn’t like when they mess with her back than cries and run.
      brandi and lisa are both been petty on this or they just doing it for the cameras. i say both.

      • chacha1

        that makes sense to me

        • italiano bambino

          hi chacha

      • twifan2

        Merry Christmas, Bam! 🙂
        Hope you have a good one with your family &/or friends! 🙂

        • italiano bambino

          hi babe merry christmas

          • twifan2

            Give you mom a hug from me & wish her a Merry Christmas! 🙂

      • GinaXOXO

        YES! And, for the life of me, I don’t know what viewers think the ladies did to Lisa VP last season. They tried to ask her questions on the beach and she ran. Why, because the women had good questions and she knew answering them would expose her game.

        Chess player? I think so.

        • italiano bambino

          i mentioned back a few months that bravo didn’t show us alot of stuff from the trailer last season. I have a feeling someone didn’t wanna be show of who she is. i don’t mind lisa but don’t put her as a victim because she does her share of shade but when is turn on her she doesn’t like it and feel there attacking her.

          • GinaXOXO

            Right. And, when posters get upset that Brandi talked about Lisa behind her back I have to wonder if they think Lisa doesn’t talk about the other housewives? IMO, everyone does that to one degree or another, but Bravo didn’t show Lisa talking about Brandi. We have seen her talk about Kyle but somehow someone talking about Lisa is horrible.

            Do you post here most of the time? I haven’t seen you for a while. I am coming here Tuesday night to watch live. Maybe I will “see” you then.

  • In the holiday spirit, and since this applies to Scandi:

    “You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch. You really are a heel.
    You’re as cuddly as a cactus,
    You’re as charming as an eel,
    Mr. Grinch.
    You’re a bad banana with a greasy black peel.”

    Happy Holidays Everyone!

  • Birdie11

    Lisa Rinna’s scenes with her parents were truly touching. It was nice to see two bratty teens show such heart and be so genuinely bonded to their grandparents.

  • Norrth

    I love the relationship Kim has with her ex. It’s nice to see parents getting along for their children’s sake.

    Lisa V. Lisa, Lisa… She is SO gaming the system, imo. She is so slick, but she can barely control herself at times. On one hand, the other women need to stop talking (about anything she’s ever done wrong). On the other hand, she seems to be allowed to remind them of what they’ve done wrong to her, at any time, no matter how long ago things passed.

    I like the fact that these women are mostly getting along. Brandi? UGH! I can barely watch the show with her on it. She should have been LONG gone. Hopefully this is her last season.

    I don’t like bratty kids no matter how young or how old. If you KNOW your kid is a brat? You should do them a favor and keep them off screen… just saying. I’m not a Yolanda fan, but at least her kids appear to be kind and thoughtful and don’t mock people while on air or throw tantrums (not that I remember).

    I think this is the best group of wives, so far, minus Brandi.

    • Birdie11

      Merry Christmas North! I sort of liked it because it showed typical teen brattiness with good hearts underneath. Yolanda’s kids are older…they don’t show Anwar’s teen beastiness…maybe for a reason like you said.

  • Shinningstar

    I absolutely love Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson!!!!!! There are no pretenses with those two.

    Brandi on the other hand has proven that she is a stalker. She’s like that friend that still holds on to a friendship after you’ve kicked her to the curb but acts like she doesn’t care when she’s not in your presence. This woman is clearly demented and it’s sad to watch her desperation for attention from Lisa V.

  • chacha1

    For some strange reason Lisa V and Yolanda like to be friends with skanks

  • fengshoe1

    Great re-cap, Beach Spin!
    I only caught up on the past 2 episodes yesterday, but was also posting here so likely missed some.
    I initially thought Lisa Rinna was far too exuberant. Now, still not sure I care for her. Will have to wait and see.
    Kyle…still see her as a phony hypocrite.
    Lisa V.- never understood the love for her. I liked her okay, but since that shady stuff went down with the lawsuit, I see the Vanderpump-Todds in a different light. Not to mention her behavior on the other trashy show. I do believe the fans’ adoration for her has gone to her head. *ducking* 😉
    Haha, did Yolanda really say it was too much work to sail the Amalfi coast? Please, give me that work, any day.
    Brandi and Kim-same old. Brandi attempting to break her previous record of how many crass things she can say….Kim-I will say it was nice to see her relationship with her ex.
    Jury is still out on Elaine. She is a beautiful woman.

    • GinaXOXO

      I don’t understand the love for Lisa and really don’t understand why Lisa’s fans cannot see any of her flaws. She gets a pass for saying outrageous things and being monitarily flamboyant but the other housewives are consistently criticized for doing the same. This blog mentioned the comment about Brandi’s vag surgery, which Kyle’s friend brought up, but didn’t mention Lisa asking Kim when was the last time she had sex and offered to have Ken take Kim out back so she (Lisa) could kill two birds with one stone. Do I think it was a horrible comment? No, I don’t get easily offended. But, posters call out Brandi, Kyle, or Yolanda but are never bothered when Lisa behaves the same way.

      I am not sure about Rinna either. I go back and forth between thinking she is great and has a positive energy and thinking she is trying to hard to make viewers think she is positive.

      I root for Kim. I want her to find inner peach and continued sobriety.

      I don’t think like Elaine. Time will tell for both Rinna and Elaine.

      • fengshoe1

        Greetings, Gina!
        All hail the queen. LOLOL. Spot on! What is it about Lisa? Truth be told, her accent isn’t very posh. Certainly not the Queen’s English. (having briefly lived and spent much time in England, I can say with some modicum of confidence)
        Just saw above-Lyme Disease Fighter- mention how the swans weren’t having her fawning all over them. I used to think she was just far more clever with her snark. Lately though, just don’t care for her. What she said to Kim is a perfect example. I now think she is down right trashy. Trashy is how Lisa comes off on her other show. I think reality “fame” has gone to her head.
        Brandi doesn’t bother as much as she does others. I don’t care for her, seemingly always, foul mouth and don’t think she can be trusted with secrets, but, eh.
        Kim…having read the book – “House of Hilton” I really don’t care for her or her sister, but being a sober drunk, I struggle with really going in on her. ‘If you can’t help another try not to hurt them’ Would love for Kim to grow and work her spiritual program.
        Indeed! Jury still out on Lisa and Elaine. Check back in, next week. We can be the lone few who don’t care for Lisa. 😉

        • GinaXOXO

          That sounds great!! I will see with you then. I agree with everything you said. I think I need to read House of Hilton. But, I don’t want to dislike Kim. Congratulations on being sober! Merry Christmas!

          • fengshoe1

            It’s a date!
            Merry Christmas, Gina!

          • GinaXOXO

            Merry Christmas to you too!!

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    I forgot to mention Brandi in my earlier post. Just when I think she can’t get any more psycho, sick, and stalkerish (yeah, I made up that word), she goes and outdoes herself.

    How does she even see herself? In one breath she’s bashing Lisa and making fun of her (i.e. calling her a 75 year old lady) and then in the next, she’s begging for her friendship, and then in the next, she’s stalking her. That woman has some REAL problems.

    • fengshoe1

      Brandi is just like Kim in that way. Say nasty things about Lisa and then react with shock when Lisa doesn’t come to an event or has no desire to be friendly with them.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Exactly! That’s why Kim and Brandi are best friends, I bet. So they can trash talk Lisa together. They are both jealous!

        • fengshoe1

          Spot on!
          I’m not even a Lisa fan and I can see their envy.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Oh yes, everything Lisa has (a husband who adores her, successful businesses, oodles of cash, and a wonderful home–that she doesn’t have to move out of every few months because of dog poo/pee). They are jelly, jelly, jelly!

          • fengshoe1

            Haha at moving due to pee/poop. She (Brandi) is nasty to her newest 4-legged.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Why should she treat him any differently?

          • fengshoe1

            True, that!

  • TartLemon

    Loved it when Lisa told Kyle to “butt out” of the Lisa Brandi exchange.

  • Gabby

    I just watched this episode a few minutes ago because I missed it last night and it was one of the most boring EVER! It’s got to pick up because I can’t handle this boredom for too much longer. If Lisa Vanderpump weren’t on the show, I would not watch at all. She helps keep it interesting imo.

    Ummm…”Do you want me to eat your pu$$y?” Really, did I hear that right. Crass..just crass. Seriously, you aren’t funny, Brandi. No wonder the Vanderpump-Todd’s want NOTHING to do with a pig like that. Ken was about to regurgitate his food when Brandi was trying to hug him.

    BTW, I like Eileen, Yolanda still has a pissy attitude, like Lisa R., Kyle is even more irritating and Kim is invisible.

    DONE! Merry Christmas.

    • mytwocents

      Agree! However, growing up my mom watched the Young & the Restless religiously, so I’ve been enjoying getting a glimpse into Eileen’s real life. She is very different than I would have expected. I think the child in me expected her to really be Ashley Abbott.

  • LymeDisease_Fighter

    Yes, this was the most boring show ever. Lisa grabbing at the cute swans, who clearly are not as fond of her as she is with them, was pretty much the highlight. I guess I am one of the few who still like Brandi. And one of those reasons is bc she doesn’t take people’s shiz and especially bc she reminds LV that she is not a frickin’ queen and brings her back down to planet earth a bit. LV is starting to take on the personality of the character she plays on Vanderpump rules….and that’s not cute.

    • RHOBHgirl

      So she’s not the Queen yet Brandi is chasing & begging Lisa to attend a party of the 5th house she’s rented?? Oh.

  • TartLemon

    Move to different comment section.

  • Jersey

    Nice to know I wasn’t the only one bored to tears with this episode. I want to see the juicy stuff they were showing in the trailer for this season. :p
    Happy Holidays guys and gals. :0)
