We start this week’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” on a cheerier note than in recent weeks, as we pop in on Kyle and one of her gay guy pals flitting around her store. They meet with a couple of party planners to discuss the planned gay mixer. The guys ask if there will be drinking, and Kyle answers with a DUH, when is there ever not?

Over at Yolanda’s, we are hanging in her closet full of the clothes that we never see her in, hearing about she and the king’s impending trip to Italy to attend a charity event.  We are informed that David is the most charitable man in the universe, and travels all over the world to raise wads of money. Hmmm…this visual brings me back to a certain singing stewardess that I know…ahhh the off-key, dreamy, love drenched memories!

Yo is a professional packer, has carried more luggage in white jeans than anyone else on earth, but a housekeeper and bag shlepper are absolute musts when packing those four extra challenging outfits. We are then blessed with a mini mothering lecture, informing us that leaving your kids to travel the verld is a crucial step in pristine parenting.

We jump over to Vanderpump Central where we hear the jarring news that Lisa and Ken’s adopted son Max is asking for info about his heritage.Lisa is thrown, as she has always chosen to answer questions simply, without much elaboration. Max wants to genetically test through a data base, hoping to discover answers. Lisa is nervous about how far he will take it, but knows that it’s the right thing  to do to not stand in his way.It’s refreshing to witness a real parenting struggle, instead of being endlessly lectured on how to produce amazing offspring of remarkable perfection.

Brandi shows up at Kim’s to pull off their operation damage control convo, and  we hear about the Kim’s excruciating and harrowing hospital stay. They talk about the oh so painful, 100% agony that she was in, and the massive antibiotics and steroids that led this drugged nut to believe that she had something terminal. An earlier meeting with Kyle is added to the mix, and we hop back and forth with descriptions of the gory details of Kim’s painfully terminal rib cracking, hernia journey. How does someone smoke a cigar with a fractured rib anyway? Kim describes the incident as a cough, a snap and a scream, all of which were super and dramatically uncomfortable.

Brandi and Kim try not to look directly at the camera as they hash out the details, and at just the right moment, Kim side glances and hacks out a carefully choreographed cough. Brandi responds by quietly murmuring “do you want ‘something’?” to which Kim rigorously shakes off with a triumphant, absolutely NOT. Kim tells Kyle that she took one of Monty’s pain pills, and Kyle is proud because at least Kim admitted that she’s a junkie for a change. Kim explains that something about that game night felt a tad familiar, and we flash back to that totally epic, crutch hiding first game night.

We are treated to a  repeat performance of Kim making the same junkie excuses, and it is simply AWESOME. I did however miss that warm moment when Kim’s best new bosom buddy shrieked that she was on meth. Brandi and Kim avoid eye contact with each other, as they smack their heads in phony dismay at their uncharacteristic and silly inebriation. Kim is disappointed that Kyle made a spectacle of her, and Brandi thinks that she was darn lucky that she made a spectacle of the whole evening. Kim loves having the support of Brandi, because she really needs the support of another hot mess during this difficult time in her life. Kim draws a parallel between Kyle’s lifetime devotion and Brandi’s friendship, which sends Kyle into tears, while Brandi laments that she has enabled a freaking ton over the past three months, and that should certainly beat a measly 40+ years of stinking sister love. Brandi respects Kyle as her sister, but believes that Kyle is done, and nominates herself as the most potentially trashy replacement.  Kim thinks that Kyle hasn’t made time for her, or maybe she has, she just can’t decide. Kim looks glazed with drunk love every time she gazes into Brandi’s bloodshot eyes, and it’s disturbing.

Max is arriving at Vanderpump Central, and he and mum jump on the computer to start his heritage search. Lisa is worried about Max being confused about his identity, and Ken clears it up by quipping that his father is from Japan and his mother is from Nigeria. Lisa is concerned, but admits that it’s not about her, which I believe is the first time that such a phrase has ever been uttered on this show. 

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 8.15.27 AM

We ricochet between Brandi and Kyle getting ready for the mixer, and Brandi’s dress is as frightening as her puffy, frozen face. Brandi hopes that her tried and true “whoopsie I was falling down hammered” excuse will fly, and get her out of acting like a raging lunatic at the poker party. 

Both Lisas, Eileen, Kyle and various gay men show up to the party and the mixing begins. We are reminded that Yolanda is away singing to her love, and that Brandi is not invited. Lisa LOVES Queen Lisa because HELLO, she smells like roses, and everyone holds their noses when stinky and unwelcome Brandi makes her entrance. Eileen is freaked because they have moved the drama from her driveway to a public place, and there is nothing for Vince to hide behind to watch the fun. Kyle is incensed that Kim would be so thoughtless as to bring that trashbox who had just hurt her to her event, and Kim continues to behave like a typical selfish addict. Kim whines to Lisa R about her hospital stay (which somehow shrunk from 8 days to 5), and Lisa is just thrilled that the crazy bitch was put away for a few days. 

RHOBH

We walk down memory lane, and relive some of the doozy aired instances when Brandi crapped all over Kyle, and Kyle finally sees the glory hallelujah light, and says that enough is enough. The women buzz about how gross Kim is to have pushed her agenda at Kyle’s party, and the tension is growing. Kyle approaches and apologizes to Brandi for pushing her arm, but has a fabulous ‘bring it bitch’ look in her eye. She calmly lays into her about coming between two sisters, and her utter ignorance about their family history. Brandi responds in her typical mature fashion, by calling Kyle about 8 strung together bleep words. YAWN. Confused Kim turns on Kyle, claims that she’s defending herself, and promptly forgets what day it is.  

RHOBH

RHOBH

Kyle, along with some choice flashbacks, nail Brandi as being the queen of all as**oles, and at a loss for words, Brandi threatens to make a new flashback that they won’t soon forget. Kyle invites a standing ovation from America by blurting out “You’re DISGUSTING!” in Brandi’s face, and it is a truly beautiful moment. Brandi spits out that even her husband doesn’t want her, and Kim is still confused about which woman she likes better, the blonde or the brunette. We relive Brandi’s greatest hits one last time for the road, Kyle FINALLY quits begging Kim to catch a clue, and tells her to f**k off, and CUT.

 

We continue next week, and I cannot WAIT!!

    Great recap, Beach. This was a painful episode to watch as we all know Brandi isn’t the sober, emotionally stable grown-up that should be helping Kim. Brandi may actually think she is helping. She doesn’t have the maturity or resources for this job. A person abusing alcohol helping a recovering addict is like trying to put out a fire by throwing gasoline on it. I don’t believe Brandi’s motives are pure. She also freaked me out when she asked Kim who she loved more…her or Kyle. It reminded me of when she asked Lisa if she would save her or Scheena. Brandi appears to be purposefully trying to come between Kim and Kyle and destroy a family. I am firmly on Kyle’s side. Both Kyle & Lisa know that one wrong word or imagined slight from Kim & Brandi will hurt her.

    • BeachSpin

      Thank you Jenny…UGH…that question was very telling and reveals a truly stunted individual.

  • TartLemon

    Kyle totally sucks at being a hostess. No, Brandi was not invited and I
    won’t defend her for showing up either. In that situation, Hostess
    Kyle has 2 proper options…… 1) Be gracious, put on a brave smile
    and keep a sly eye on the situation. ~OR~ 2) Quietly ask her to leave or
    have Brandi escorted out. Instead, Kyle CHOSE to start a HUGE scene
    yelling, screaming, blubbering and getting personal with Kim.

    –Kim was inappropriate to invite Brandi.
    –Kyle was inappropriate for creating the HUGE scene, ignoring the other guests.
    –Brandi was inappropriate for showing up uninvited by the hostess and ALWAYS saying inappropriate things.

    • MorningYawn

      I agree with ya, but option #2, a discrete request to leave, would have still ended in war. Brandi would never have allowed camera time to slip away last night. I wish kyle would have iced out Brandi but I think she was just gutted that her sis brought her and that she didn’t stick up for her. Kyle still defends Kim in her blog yet I believe Kim was totally playing her sis.

  • Jersey

    Thanks for the recap Beach. :0)

    Was anyone else just as surprised as me when in next weeks clip, Brandi compares her drinking to Yolanda’s daughter’s DUI? My jaw hit the floor. I can’t believe she would compare her alcoholism to what a 17/18 year old does. She seriously is out of her mind.
    ETA- How have I never come across that Yolanda wedding video. LMAO WTF?

    • Dani-K

      That’s how Brandi operates. You give her constructive criticism, she gives you a knife in the back.

      • Jersey

        Yep, she’s a horrible person. :/

    • Jennymckitty

      I imagine that Yolanda was pretty upset when Brandi brought up her daughter’s DWI. It sounded to me like Brandi was saying that people were saying Bella had a drinking problem as well. Not cool to bring up kids.

      • Jersey

        Not cool at all. As a woman in her 40s who also has kids, you would think she knows this.

    • BeachSpin

      YW Jersey…maybe we actually see Yo blow next week. That stewardess video is SHEER GOLD…so glad we could squeak it in this week!!

  • TartLemon

    I won’t defend Brandi’s behavior at all this season. Last season either. I also cannot give Kyle a free ride. It was just a few episodes ago Kyle was warning Brandi about Lisa’s grudge holding. Kyle even did a TH with that idiot opossum smirk to tell US what a snake LISA was. Cut to Kyle kissing up to Lisa.

    From what I saw, Kyle was just as responsible as Brandi for that whole thing whirling out of control. It turned into a shouting match we could hear but it was not shown. When the hostess (Kyle) is involved in allowing a situation to spin over the top like that, I blame the HOSTESS. There were other options for Kyle to keep the rest of her guests comfortable.

  • Dani-K

    Kim needs to go back to rehab. She doesn’t know what day it is. How long she was in the hospital. Or that blood is thicker than water. But I feel Kyle started this mess tonight. She should have iced Brandi out instead of giving her a stage and microphone.

    • Dani-K

      Great job Beach!

      • BeachSpin

        Thanks Dani! 🙂

    • Jennymckitty

      I think she was panicked by seeing how much control Brandi seems to have over Kim. However, I believe that production had more to do with Brandi showing up than Kim.

    • MorningYawn

      I would have loved for her to ice out Brandi. I wish she would ice put her sis too.

  • Brattus Rattus

    *sigh* All I have for Brandi, Kyle and Kim is this:
    Arrested Development

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Awesome recap Beach. Last night’s episode was epic! If Kim doesn’t get off of this show and get some help, she is going to die.

    • Birdie

      This is one that will live with the dinner party from hell and scary island…it was indeed EPIC!

      • RealitytvJunkie

        Kyle has never stood out to me as worthy of being on the show but last night she earned her spot. She’s the only one, I’ve seen slay Brandi. Brandi seemed intimidated.

        • Birdie

          YES! I totally agree…I have always been on the fence about Kyle…sort of eh. She slayed last night, and came thru big time, I was cheering from my couch!

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Reality! YES…Kim is sinking lower and lower right in front of our eyes.

    • MorningYawn

      If I were Kyle, I would have left the show then and there. Drops mic, walks out, never to talk to either of those tricks again.

  • Birdie

    The way Brandi and Kim relate to each other gives me the CREEPS. It appears not only codependent, but mentally ill.

    • twifan2

      That kiss on the lips between Brandi & Kim last week was CREEPY I get women kiss cheeks on cheeks & sometimes a peck on the lips. But between Brandi & Kim it looked just plain creepy!

  • Chloe

    Go Kyle! I am past the point of sympathy with Kim. She’s a manipulator and is using the faux friendship with Brandi to hurt Kyle. She knows that Kyle will be there for her, so she sides with Brandi. During that fight, Kim was on the sideline salivating while thinking “They’re fighting over ME.”

  • italiano bambino

    Kyle was just giving a show on that party. Did brandi had to go “uninvited ” NO but kyle just wanted to do a scene as far i saw kim and brandi where minding their own business . to blame brandi to get in between the sister i called bull shit KIM AND KYLE HAVE THERE OWN FEUD PRIOR TO THE SHOW. jmo and i stick to it. ps that party none of the boys didn’t care for kyle drama.

    • MorningYawn

      I respectfully disagree Bam. By even being there, Brandi was not minding her own business. She was there to provoke and push buttons. She got almost what she wanted – a fight and camera time- but she also got a wiser Kyle who bit her tongue til it bled trying not to be disloyal to her sis. Her sis, may I add, who was beyond disloyal to Kyle and did not deserve the kindness of pursed lips.

      Sorry For the rant Bam! Not personal!! Brandi and Kim just pissed me off. They are heartless human beings who gutted Kyle for the sake of a storyline.

      • italiano bambino

        Hi Morning
        Let’s say that was the case and we know brandi can be a bit much i never saw kim and brandi saying anything to kyle other than just hello and specially Brandi. Brandi and her wine glass where busy drinking each other lol . Kyle on the other when and bitch and moan to whoever those two people where the caucasian lady and the african american guy when on and on and kim and brandi wheren’t even saying anything UNTIL kyle started her Rant. that’s how i see it Maybe i have to re watch but saw the episode twice. Im not defending brandi because she can ben something but Kyle started that scene with brandi and Kim.. LOVE YOU 😛

        • MorningYawn
  • Yolie

    Beach, your recaps are the best. Thank you. What an episode! When Brandi told Kyle “you’re not wanted either, ask your husband” I wish Kyle would have retort with “your poor kids,” because that would have CRUSHED Brandi and stopped her dead in her tracks. So proud of Kyle for holding her own against the giant bully towering over her making threats to physically harm. Brandi does not fit in with this rich crowd. And now that she has no friends (besides Dim Kim) she’ll have no storyline. My hope is this is her last season.

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Yoli! I LOVED writing this one!! WOW…that line would have been a game changer!

  • Birdie

    I am feeling immature so I am thrilled that Kyle got down and dirty with Trashy Glanville. Brandi always expects to able to mouth off among these women and never get called out, because of their desire to stay above her contrived and purposely shocking rants. Good for Kyle, for getting down in the gutter and still staying about a dozen class levels above a tramp who was truly verbally flattened. Go Kyle!

    • YES! Sometimes you just have to get down on someone’s gutter level because that’s the only way they’ll understand. I loved when Kyle told Brandi “Get out, you’re not wanted here.” I gave Kyle a standing ovation for that one. Why did Brandi come when she knew she was not wanted there. I DESPISE low self-esteem bullies like Brandi. Brandi loves to make shit up in her CRAZY head and use that as a reason to be an ass with someone. She did it last season to Lisa, now it’s Kyle’s turn.

      • MorningYawn

        Brandi came to push buttons, get a reaction, try to make Kyle say something she would regret something awful, oh, and camera time. Brandi came for camera time. I might even think producer interference her but frankly I think Kim n Brandi concocted that ish on their own.

  • TopGear

    It’s amazing that Kyle is not a fan favorite yet most viewers are Team Kyle on this fight. I was mesmerized how she stood up to the bully. Kyle was great last night.

    • BeachSpin

      She was!

  • GREAT recap, Beach!!

    Kim cracks me up with her druggie voice and appearance. It’s obvious she was never sober and is an active drug abuser. Please someone get that child some help! LisaR and Eileen see right through it. Kyle is my new hero!!

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks SLH! This one was fun…how did Kim’s tan deepen in the hospital…and what about that Bozo inspired makeup job during the couch convo with Brandi? She was not sober ONE single second in last night’s epi.

      • Hahahahahaha!! Kim’s Bozo makeup on the couch with Brandi was hilarious. Shit like that cracks me up along with the lethargic slurry words.

            Collette!!!

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            YAY Beach! LOL! I was waiting & waiting for someone to comment.
            Unfortunately that’s who I see when Kim comes on my screen.

          • BeachSpin

            I LOVED her!! You flatter Kim!!

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            Me too. How could you not love Collette?
            Cheri was the best. So funny.

          • BeachSpin

            Remember…she was trying to decide between a butterball and a kick ass ham for Christmas dinner?

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            Ha-ha-ha-ha! I forgot about that! “Kick ass ham”. Too funny.

          • HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            This is who I see when Kim comes on slurring her words, acting a fool & stuff.
            Only sadly Kim’s is not an act.

      • MorningYawn

        She was the old lady from “something about Mary” in that scene… She must be making a stage production out if it!

  • MidwestMiddie

    “Kudos, Beach Spin!”
    Yo is a professional packer, has carried more luggage in White Jeans than anyone
    else on earth……”
    Lost coffee………..lol
    Thanks for the laugh!

  • MorningYawn

    Beach, when you did the “HELLO” in your blog it was as if Rinna was sitting right on. Y couch with me! Lol! Great blog overall’n

    • BeachSpin

      😀 Thanks!

  • twifan2

    Awesome recap, BeachSpn! I usually just read your recap, but I just had to watch this epi for all the smirking, face contortions, etc… 😀

    • BeachSpin

      HAHAHA…lots of those last night.

  • twifan2

    AND OMG! WHY was Faye Resnick even there?!
    UGH to the max!

    • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

      Cause it was a chance to get her fugly mug back on camera. That’s why. LOL!

    • Guardian

      I so wish Kyle would have just said, “sick ’em Faye” and set her upon Brandi.

      • twifan2

        ROTFLMAO! :’D
        I would be watching that episode over & over & over…! :’D

        • Guardian

          My money would be on Faye too. I’d probably not leave the house for a long time watching it over and over as well.

  • Wendy Owen

    Brava, Beach!
    The whole Kim/Kyle/Brandi dynamic has been weird from day one when K&K took Brandi’s crutch, remember? Brandi called Kim out for being an addict of some sort. Next, we have Kyle calling Kim out for being a drunk. Then we have all three calling out Lisa V for being a prima dona.
    Whole thing is a b.s. set up, if you ask me, because all three always seem to be creating some kind of drama.
    BTW, Kyle’s loving comment about having to deal with Kim for 40 years would mean that Kim has been drunk since Kim was 10 and Kyle was 5. Funny enough, isn’t that when Kim was supporting the entire loser Richards’ clan?

    • Dave

      I had pneumonia and a cracked rib a few years ago. No hospital stay. Cough syrup and an antibiotic for me. If Kim uses the word “pain” one more time, I may go insane. Kim is an addict and very manipulative. She’s been lying to everyone since season one and may end up dead if she continues down this dangerous path.

      • twifan2

        You poor thing. 🙁
        Hope you’re ten times better now! 🙂

        My thing is IF was in SO MUCH pain, WTH was she doing at a poker party?! :/

        • Guardian

          . . . smoking a cigar no less. And it looked to me that right at the end of last night’s episode, she was putting a cig in her mouth (?) – not sure. As for her little cough with B – acting – we can all force a cough.

          • Hi Guardian….I caught that also.

          • Guardian

            Wasn’t sure, but um, yeah. What we have been seeing is addict Kim again. Unfortunately, I feel like it is taking over the show. We get to see so little these days outside of the chaos – not entertaining in the least.

          • Absolutely! You’re so right and it is sad.

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            Not that’s it’s any better, I’m sure, but it was an E-Cig G. Vapor, no smoke.

          • Guardian

            Oi! I so want to just watch their lifestyles not all of this crap. It’s not even drama any longer, it’s chaos.

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            A thousand upvotes to you G. Tired of the chaos too. If I wanted chaos all the time, I’d go spend time my own family! LOL! J/K.

          • Guardian

            Having worked with addicts, it’s just too much for me. And then I have the added conflict with Kim and her problems versus what she appears to be trying to do for Monty. Like you, I watched (and nursed two) four of my family members suffer and die within five years – along with other relatives and friends. And two more have passed within the past three months. I want to be entertained, I want to see BH, I don’t want their lives, don’t want to live through them, I just want to see pleasant with a side of silly drama.

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            I am so very sorry for your loss G. So very sorry Love.
            I know how incredibly hard that is. Wow.
            Sending you love & big hugs across the miles.

            I agree. It’s Beverly Hills for goodness sake. I want fun & fabulous, not trashy & ghetto. Show me the good stuff. Not sad & broken. I can find that on my own, on the daily. Don’t need Bravo for that.

          • Guardian

            As hard as it was TL – we did the right thing by our loved ones. So many can’t, either because of distance, finances, work, or they just can’t cope – or don’t want to and are happy to let others bear the load. I don’t judge them for it though. You do what you do for love and knowing that you did the best you could when someone needed you the most. My hugs to you too and lots of XOXOXOXO!

            Thank you and hugs to you too!

        • GREAT question. Just shows you how much of a freakin liar Kim is. It’s SO hard for me to have any sympathy for Kim. She drives me NUTS!!!

      • Sorry you went thru that Dave.

      • BeachSpin

        Your comment is so painful, Dave.

  • Trippinhhard

    Awesome recap @BeachSpin, I love the way you weave the tea to us. Thank you because I can’t watch the show.. I’m happy Kyle is telling brandi to take a hike to nowhere.. Kim is in so much denial, she doesn’t realize how bad she is.. She a drunk period, sober or drunk, she feel nothing for the havoc she has caused her family, especially her kids.. Kyle just needs to let Kim do whatever she wants, she not really ready for the type of help she needs.. IMO

  • Dave

    I thought it was absolutely disgusting that Kyle said she had to have a gay mixer so that her gays weren’t just out there having random sex. I’m happy Andy addressed her insensitive remarks on Watch What Happens Live last night.

    • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

      Ita Dave. I mean wth? These women act like their gay friends are some type of fashion accessory not people! SMDH!

      • Dave

        Thank you for saying this. Gay men are not Chanel purses.

        • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

          YW. Dave. It really does irritate the hell out of me. You don’t treat people like they are some kind of ‘pet’ or ‘special project’. They’re people. FFS! Actual real people.
          What if it were reversed & all gay men & women decided they need a sloppy, messy housewife as a pet, bet that’d go over real well.
          NOT! Bunch of fools!

          • RonnieIsBack

            And yall know who started this chit…Kathy Griffin…in he stand up in 2009 she was like ” I love my gays..etc…

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            Like Kathy, it’s just so classless & debasing. These are people. Not toys, not props. Glad Andy spoke about it. Hopefully now it can & will stop.

    • RonnieIsBack

      I just wishe he would have lit into Lineitha Leakes…she is notorious for speaking about “the gays” like they are handbags…

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      ITA. I get the feeing Kyle is doing this in an effort to be like Lisa V but Lisa V never seems to label her friends with their sexuality. Brandi is the worst offender with her constant referrals to her”Gaygent” and “gusband”. Why not just call them friends?

    • Bad Barbie

      I mean… I don’t think only gays do that.

  • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

    Awesome re-cap Beach.

    All three of these women need to get off my TV. I have had enough.

    Kyle, we get it. You have been there for 40+ years & have had your fill of Kim & her drama, situations, circumstances, problems, etc., etc.. That’s understandable. Just own it.
    Brandi, never, ever try to come between two sisters. It’s a lose, lose for you. Get yourself some help before you try to help your friend.
    Kim, you need help. Serious help. Sorry to tell you this, but you are NOT sober if you are taking pills. (Especially ones that have not been prescribed to you.)

    Now on the other hand I sympathize & empathize with Kim. One of the hardest things I have ever had to endure is watching someone I love with all my heart, die. & to not be able to help them or ease their pain? That feeling is unbearable! Unless you have walked that path? There are no words to describe how that feels. (Sorry to be a Debbie Downer.)
    You get a pass from me on that one. I have been there too many times not to show some compassion for your circumstances. Please get help. You can not handle this on your own.
    Please seek help.

      I’m sorry for what you have gone through TL. I don’t know if caring for Monty caused Kim to relapse or if she were ever truly sober. Sober is a big word in addiction and means so much more than a person is not using. Monty is a wealthy man and could afford to have home care, either outside of, or alongside Kim. I don’t know if she has this help but do know if she were truly sober – and all that it means – she would insist on it. We should all be so lucky to have the resources they do. So many of us who have nursed those near and dear either couldn’t afford it, or the person had a policy that didn’t provide it. You know how exhausting and consuming it is. Again, I feel for Kim but in this matter, based on what we see, she has chosen to put herself in a situation that is a lose – lose. And, I fear there may be some benefits that are serving her addiction.

        Thank you so much for your kind words G. I agree. Kim needs help from professionals. Absolutely. Both for taking care of Monty & his needs & for herself. But I am certain that both she & Monty want it this way, so I can’t fault her at all. My sister, my Mom & my son’s father all wanted to be at home & not in a hospital. My poor sister didn’t get the chance to come home. Thankfully we were able to do that for both my Mom & my son’s father. They got to come home.
        It’s so hard. I hope Kim seeks out help. I fear what will happen if she doesn’t.

        • Guardian

          Our experiences sound so similar. Every terminal person I have ever known wants to be home – or at the very least away from the hospital, cared for by those they know. I support it and understand this if it is within the abilities of those they must rely on. I do hope Kim has help with this as unfortunately she is an addict. An addict with access to medications. I don’t believe this access is her motive but I fear the temptation(s) might be beyond her control. I would feel a lot better if there were third party involvement with monitoring things at the very least, because as you know the worst is yet to come.

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            Have to agree with ya G. You speak the truth. I don’t think that this is her motive either but I fear without a third person around, the temptation will be too great.

    • Oh Tiger, I’m so sorry for your loss.

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Thank you Honey. I have watched my sister, my Mom & my son’s Father battle death & lose. It was too much to bear once, nevermind three times! For this I have the utmost empathy for Kim. It’s devastating.

        • Oh Tiger, you gonna make me cry, honey!!

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            I’m so sorry Honey. It’s just that I get it. I get it.
            I truly know what that feels like & it’s so hard not to be compassionate towards Kim. I hope she seeks out help because it is so devastating to have to endure all that that entails. The helplessness, the pain, the sadness, the guilt. It’s overwhelming, nevermind when you are dealing with addiction problems to boot.

            This also explains your amazing spirit and sense of humor..you find comfort in it thru your pain. Sending a phuckin boat load of love your way hon.

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            Aww thanks Ronnie. You are such a doll. Sending love & big hugs to you too girl!
            As much as it hurt me & devastated me, I was so glad that I could be there for them. I think it would have been much worse if I couldn’t be there. That guilt? I could not handle.

            & here I thought, it was cracking my head open at the age of 6 that gave me my sense of humor. LOL!

            Yes. I tend to do silly well. It’s my “go-to”, if you will. My shield, my armour.
            Hell rather laugh than cry anyday!

      HUGS!!!!

  • doggiedaddy

    Done and over all this KK&B fighting. Nothing says true friend like being there at 2 am, drunk, learning the messy secrets of a former addict. How could that go wrong? Oh yeah, keep a dyeing cancer patient with powerful life ending drugs around just in case he’ll share. Stupid on all levels.

    And oh my dear Pump, this is what you get when you ‘owe it to him’ and tell your adopted child – constantly, since childhood, that they were adopted. Karma baby, karma, and bad parenting. LisaR is lovely but Eileen is soooo above it all. Calling them Drama Queens and actually having the nerve to ask Brandi what her problems with her are #priceless.

    And who was that tall bearded number (Lady GaGa) that was in Kyle’s entourage at that awful party? Damn. Too easy. He wanted something harder.Damn

    • Poo

      I may have missed some dialog, but when did it come out that Lisa has been constantly telling Max he was adopted since childhood? I thought I heard her say that he had been told as a child (good honest parenting) but not that it was constant.

      • Guardian

        If I understood and remember correctly, she didn’t volunteer information but would answer his questions when he would ask, sans a lot of detail.

        • Poo

          Thanks, that is what I thought I had heard. What is all this bad parenting Karma stuff. Its not bad Karma that a kid wants to know who his birth parents are. Its reality and one that most adoptive parents accept as part of their children growing into adulthood.

          • Guardian

            Sooner or later most adopted children do want to know and for the adoptive parents, it can feel threatening, especially for someone like Lisa. The thing I wonder about Max is that while I don’t doubt his desire, I wonder if there might be a “motive” – strong word and not the right one but can’t come up with something else. Ken, Lisa, and P are high achievers and hard working – motivated, successful, savvy. Max is not. It is clear that he lived a charmed childhood but that he must make his own mark without a lot of financial assistance from them. I have wondered a bit if he wants to make contact hoping his biological parents might expect less and give more. Could be way off but his girlfriend is 10+ years older and he may like having someone else be in control, responsible.

  • RonnieIsBack

    Great reacap!
    Brandi is trash plain and simple…she ran like a chicken chit when Kenya laid into her flat azz and hid behind Leeza G. But with Kyle she says she will knock her teeth out…bish please. I would have broken that twig in two and kept it moving. Tit punched her at least and busted her implant ala Orange is the New Black.
    Kim should be ASHAMED. Bish needs more rehab and an azz kicking by Kathy Hilton..
    Yolanda is such a effin name dropper..I get it she is ill..but she continuously makes me ill with her name dropping….
    Again, the reunion is going to be EPIC. Eileen really hands Brandi her azz in her blog and so does Kyle.
    Lisa R is feeling scared so she backs off this week….Brandi must have some dirt on her…

  • twifan2

    OT! So I guess Sheila can post pics of her & Milania together, but Melissa can’t? :/

    https://twitter.com/SheilaGiudice3/status/562668136575807488

    • Bad Barbie

      Yes. Melissa IS the person that she said she was moving to another town because she didn’t want her kids near the Gia and her sisters. Did we forget all the vile ish that Melissa had to say about that family. Come on now.

      • twifan2

        Just ‘smells’ of a set up to get Sheila on the show…& maybe in prison?! That fambly ain’t clean either. 😉

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    Great recap Beach!! I want someone to ask Brandi whether she called Kathy at 2am to deal with Kim? Why just Kyle? I bet she didn’t turn up at Kathy’s holiday party and start telling her she isn’t there for her sister.

  • Bad Barbie

    BRandi really got some nerves. The fact that she was sitting there telling Kim that she’s been through more with Kim than Kyle. LOL! Ridi!

    Someone comes between me and a relative, they won’t come between anything else after that. She’s garbage.

    Lisa- breaks my heart that you see how nervous max inquiring about is heritage is making her. Max, I get it, you want to know where you come from but sometimes it is better now even knowing. I wish I was adopted into HIS family! LOL

  • Poo

    I was thrilled when Kyle finally told Kim to F…off. Its long overdue. Kim is not sober and just reading her blog at Bravo shows her deep denial of her issues. She has been having a ball torturing Kyle with Brandi. I am glad Kyle put an end to it.

    • Guardian

      Agree Poo – and, good morning to you! Noticed that Kim and B have yet to write their ‘bogs’ for this episode – have probably been brainstorming together to come up with something that makes them look like the innocent, misunderstood victims. Thought it was so telling that Brandi didn’t twitter fight during and after Tuesday’s episode.

      • Poo

        Good Morning to you too. Im glad that you agree with me as I consider you a voice of sanity on the blogs !!!! Just watching Kim’s facial expressions while Brandi was trying to verbally eviscerate Kyle, made me sick. No loving sister would stand there and NOT defend their sister. Especially after Brandi made that nasty comment about Mauricio. Someone on another blog said that Brandi just fights “street dirty”. She doesn’t belong on this show. If I want “street dirty”, I will tune in to Atlanta or Orange County…and I don’t watch either of them.

        • Guardian

          Brandi said publicly something to the effect that she has to drink to be around the women on the series, that she “acts” like an a-hole on the show, and that she is a “happy drunk” – I’m assuming that was self effacing – I hope. Kim’s behavior was deplorable, disgusting. She loves the attention and that she finally has someone on “her” side. (BTW, When have we ever seen Kim with her own friends in any of these seasons?) Kim is an extremely spiteful person and as an addict, has love for only one thing – her substance(s). All others are only to be used and abused if they don’t do her bidding. I’m not the least bit surprised that she didn’t defend Kyle and that she is putting it out there that Kyle has not been there for her. I hope Kyle really does back off, for good, and let’s Kim sink or swim.

          • Poo

            Read somewhere that Kyle and Kim are not talking. Probably over Kingsley biting Kyles daughter and blaming her rather than the dog.The article said that Kim and Brandi are hanging out together…guess you and I know what that means. I bet Mauricio may also be part of the decision to freeze Kim out. Brandi’s comment about him was totally cruel and abusive but Kim said not a word in defense of him.

          • Guardian

            Probably too, over the story Kim gave blaming Kyle’s daughter for going in the room that was “off limits.” I think Kyle will let a lot go with Kim except when it comes to Mauricio. Glad K & B are hanging out together and hope B is going to be the great friend she claims cause sooner or later, we all know what is going to happen.

          • Poo

            Brandi’s blog is out on Bravo..awaiting your opinion.

          • Guardian

            All of the woman were surprised to see Brandi show up – Kyle had no role in their initial reaction/comments they made. Everyone sees a turd in a punch bowl – don’t have to have it brought to your attention. As for the rest, it’s just the world according to B – I’m a great friend, I’m there for Kim, I’m her closest friend (apparently after 51 years, Kim hasn’t managed to have one of those), I’m real, I’m true, Imma Imma Imma. As for the Kyle quotes she presented – talk about editing. As for why Kim was hospitalized – an event Kim can’t assign a number of days to without help, unless Kyle or Brandi heard it from the Dr., I don’t believe it. B is simply Kim’s new enabler, her new crutch. Kim already has a best friend – her substance(s). E for effort, F for fail.

  • Brattus Rattus

    Kyle needs to tell Brandi to F Off next. I just really hate to hear the Richards sisters cry. I think all the dogs in my neighborhood start to howl when that that screeching starts. It’s just annoying. I’m just going to put this out there – If Brandi wants Kim so badly, let her have her. Walk the hell away, Kyle. And that low blow about Kyle’s husband, I guess Lisa V can now feel vindicated about that whole magazine mess from last season. It was Brandi the whole time.
    Next season Brandi, Kyle and Kim can take a hike. I’m over it.

    • Poo

      My sentiments exactly. Who the hell wants Kim anyway. Wait until she asks Brandi to lend her some money…she will be dropped quickly.

    • Guardian

      Oh that crying . . . drives me crazy. We get it, we all get it. Indeed, let Kim and Brandi ride off into the sunset together – they’ll be back, apart. Kyle needs to let Kim go, let her really fall and then let her be responsible. That Bravo has allowed this show to become about addiction, this is what you get – second verse, same as the first. Over and over and over again. All else and all others are forced to revolve around it.
