Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Recap: Kim Richards Is Confronted & Lisa Is Surprised [Episodes 14]

Posted on Feb 18 2015 - 8:14am by BeachSpin

RHOBH

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” begins, and surprise!…Brandi’s sober, and is arriving at Yolanda’s for a repeat bony yoga class.  Brandi is on a 21 day cleanse to prove to her best a**hole friends that she is absolutely only a part time lush. Brandi misses drinking, and thinks that being unaltered is boring, but Xanax fills in those reality bites hours during this temporary and snoozy period of annoying coherence. Yolanda proudly announces to the yoga instructor that Brandi is only on pills today, and you can almost see the poor guy’s eyes roll, as he speeds the women through the poses. Brandi thinks that the cleanse is worth it for Yo, because Yo took her under her lemon scented wing when Queen Lisa had to resign, due to being stuck under the tires of that bus she was thrown under.

RHOBH

It feels like old times when Kyle arrives at Queen Lisa’s for a spot of tea, but when she immediately launches into Brandi and Kim issues, the flowery mood is blown. Kyle believes that Brandi is putting a wedge  between she and Kim, and Lisa gives her good common sense advice, and nails the repetitive and predictable Glanville dynamic. Kyle expectantly reverts back to a spoiled brat and only half listens, and it makes me yearn for a Hanky and Panky guest appearance.

RHOBH

We flip over to Eileen and Vince going to dinner, where Eileen retells the story of her well meaning lunch with Kyle and Kim. Vince simply wants to scarf scallops, and believes that the sisters just need to chill. Eileen agrees, and thinks that they all should be thrown into intense therapy. We hear the first rumblings of Eileen and Vince hosting a script reading with her best washed up actress cast mates reading the parts. 

RHOBH

Vince wants  to serve alcohol, but Eileen says absolutely not, because the more these women drink, the more slurring about body parts there is. Eileen asserts that these women are plenty relaxed already, and should remind Vince to remember the looseness he witnessed during his spying session through their garage window at their last party.

RHOBH

Brandi is meeting her pal Jennifer on the beach…at least that’s what the name caption reads once I pull my eyes off her unrecognizable quacker of a face.  Brandi receives a phone call from Ken, who reluctantly invites her to a surprise birthday party for Lisa. Brandi’s heart is happy until Ken pleasantly requests that she behave like someone else.

RHOBH

It’s time for the table read at Eileen’s house, and we hop between Kyle and Kim, the two Lisas, and Brandi and Jennifer beating Kim’s plight into the ground. Kyle believes that talking to Kim gets them into trouble, and playing nice is the best way to fake a healthy relationship. Kim is peeved that Eileen butted into the sisters’ beeswax, proving  that unselfish motives get a girl nowhere on this show. The two Lisas discuss the issue, and we are reminded that Queen Lisa has learned from experience that it’s better to stay scared and far, far away. Lisa Rinna assures her that she visited Crazy Town with Kim, and asserts that they all need to quit acting like big chickens.

RHOBH

Brandi and Jennifer agree that Kim is relapsing, that she and Brandi’s friendship needs to end in 21 days, and that she should never hang out with her sister ever, ever again.

The women convene at the table read, and Kim tells a glory days tale about working with Bette Davis, which would be a neat story coming from someone whose glory days hadn’t morphed into a strung out cliche. Queen Lisa shows up and is intimidated by the fierce acting prowess filling the room, as Kyle gleefully announces that she shouldn’t worry, because she has no lines anyway.  Lisa Rinna is given the announcer role which is definitely lame, but being the consummate hustler, she laughs it off. The script is about a trashy poker game, and Kyle plays a degenerate gambler and Kim is a puppeteer.  The whole thing is weird, but is much more pleasant without Brandi’s gutter blabber mouth.

RHOBH

We pop in on Yo, who is wearing her favorite white jeans as we sit in on her scavenger hunt planning session. The event is meant to bring people together to playfully appreciate each other’s brilliance, clearly indicating that her Lyme brain has kicked back in. Back at Eileen’s, the women gawk at her Emmy award, and it’s cute. Lisa R mentions her lunch with Brandi, and she and Eileen wonder out loud why exactly Brandi behaves like such an obnoxious train wreck.

RHOBH

Kim jumps into the comfort of her favorite center of attention role, and begins whining about the sister vs best trashbox girlfriend conflict in her poor pathetic life. Kim is going through more than anyone else in the world, because even though most people have lost loved ones to cancer, it’s super duper extra hard for her. Kim bounces all over the place, defending both Brandi and Kyle, and Kyle wonders what would draw her to an enabler who drinks like a fish instead keeping the addict support in the family. Lisa R nails it once again, and calls Kim a big fat deflector. Both Lisas encourage her to get support to stay accountable, and Kim responds succinctly with a couple of blah blahs.

RHOBH

It’s Queen Lisa’s birthday and Pump’s garden is decked out in pink flowers and looks beautiful. Brandi, Kim and sister Kathy are riding to the event together. Brandi throws shade at Eileen by giggling about the wine toss, and labeling her as judgmental. Kathy’s expression reads like an uneasy woman who wants to take a shower. Lisa R and Eileen powwow about the horror of this franchise, and Eileen senses a disconnect between Kim’s blah blahs and her behavior. Eileen earlier noticed that Kim never disputed Brandi’s nastiness towards Kyle, and they both agree that the mess is one ginormous glob of interconnected weirdness.

RHOBH

Ken and Lisa take off for her birthday evening out, and Ken pulls a fast one and fakes a problem in order to stop in at Pump. The guests jump out from behind the bar, Lisa is touched to be surrounded by such love, and Brandi is honored as the special guest bitch of the evening. Brandi croaks out an ‘I’m sorry’ ditty dedicated to the birthday girl, which encourages the other women to jump around and warble out silly lyrics.  Brandi decides to stay out of it because she isn’t wanted, and has only hit peri-menopause.

Lisa scores a giant pink rock, which she chose herself, and the event looks like a fun party. Eileen and Lisa earlier determined that there’s a moral obligation to inform Kim that she stinks at covering up that she’s a junkie, so Eileen respectfully pulls Kyle aside to let her in on the plan. Kyle believes that Eileen’s and Lisa R’s hearts are in the right place, but knows that if the complicated issue isn’t shoved under the rug, it won’t end well. Hopefully there are lots of rugs in Amsterdam, because that’s where we’re headed next week!

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    Great recap Beach! Kim hasn’t once acknowledged to the ladies what happened at poker night – if it really was just one mistaken moment wouldn’t she have addressed it with Eileen and LisaR and apologized for her behavior? Even watching it back now she doesn’t seem in the least bit sorry and her blogs continue to blame LisaR and Eileen. I hope someone at that reunion asks her why she feels she should be allowed to continue on a reality show and then expect them all to lie and cover up what we can clearly see on screen like idiots.

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Beverly! i wonder if Kim hasn’t addressed it because she doesn’t remember much and doesn’t want to risk sounding like a fool. All she could say when she and Brandi discussed it was “so much pain” over and over. Her head was a blank.

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        Even now after watching it Beach I think she still has the same attitude sadly.

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    Excellent recap!!

    • BeachSpin

      Thank u WaWa!

  • RoundAbout

    Fashion note – Love, love, love THAT DRESS in green on Yolanda, but not so much in the pink on Brandi. Brandi needs to give pink back to Lisa V because pink leaves Brandi looking washed out and pale. Now if Brandi had tried THAT DRESS in a bold royal blue, she would have turned a few heads maybe…

    • Birdie

      I agree except Yo needs to cool it with the tanning. I actually liked Lisa Rinna’s dress more, and why the heck were two women wearing the same dress?

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    Can’t wait to see the Amsterdam trip because that’s apparently when Kimbecile REALLY falls off the wagon and gets about the train to KrazyTown.

    I loved the way that Lisa treated Brandi like trash at the party. Without being too blatant, she threw shade in the most subtle ways–letting her know that her presence was not really appreciated–and what do you want to bet that Lisa (after the party) tells Ken he was out of his loving mind to invite Trashi to her b-day party. I mean, being thrown together at OTHERS’ events is one thing-but inviting her to Pump for Lisa’s special day is altogether different.

    One thing all these women need to learn is that Kim is not going to ever change (probably) because this is the same dog and pony show that has been going on for AT LEAST 25 years (and maybe longer). No intervention is going to get to Kim. Kim has to get to that place where she is SO sick and tired of being sick and tired that she finds the courage to be honest and the strength from within to change. None of us can make anyone else change.

    • Hi Heels! Hope you’ve been well, my friend. Lisa’s shade was simply perfection! Lisa knows how to throw shade in a classy way without making it so obvious and I love it. I also enjoyed the other Lisa…Lisa R. I applaud Lisa R…she is what the show needed. I hope she stays REAL.Brandi is a weak link to the show. Notice how she told her friend Jen all of Kim’s personal business?

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Hey Seuss! Nice to see you too, my friend! Have you read Lisa R’s blog? OMG–so hilarious! She even had the nuts to call Brandi out on her tampon slinging by suggesting she do a commercial while she’s still got the flow! (like anyone would hire her-YUCK–no company would want to be associated with Trashi Brandi’s rotting tampon string).

        And YES!!! Brandi is the one who has TOTALLY outed Kim this season on her relapse so why isn’t Kim mad at Trashi? The only reason I can think of is that Kim’s wet brain prevents her from thinking logically!! WET BRAIN!!!

        • Jennymckitty

          Hey HH, good to see you!!! I loved. Lisa R’s blog. She is very clever and a great addition to the show.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Nice seeing you too, Jenny! Lisa R is awesome! Love Eileen too. This show SO needs their presence!

    • Chloe

      Kim, to me, always looks like she is biting her tongue and holding back whenever Kyle goes into one of her crying “I have always been a good sister to you” tirades. Unfortunately, I think Kim’s addiction and issues have left her too emotionally vulnerable to ever truly stand up to Kyle….and Kyle knows it.
      As I said in another thread, I think Kyle is more manipulative and deceptive than all the other woman put together….haven’t liked her since the show started.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Oh I agree! Kyle needs alanon and Kim needs rehab. They are both codependent and need family therapy. I read that book, House of Hilton and their mother was a sadistic whacko who pitted those girls against each other their entire lives–no wonder they turned out they way they did!

    • Dave

      Brandi HATED HATED Kim and Kim HATED Brandi. Did everyone forget how Brandi bullied Kim against Kyle a few seasons ago. Brandi is a back stabbing snake she’s turned on most of these women cause she was cheated on and left for Leann Rhymes. Its no wonder her husband left her Brandi is unswallowable!

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Thank you! Dim Kim has such a short memory. Brandi called her a meth addict on national television and this season, outed her relapse more than anyone!

        Brandi is just utter and total trash!

    • RonnieIsBack

      Hell yeah, Ken had to sleep in the lake with the swans that night…Lisa is funny and the best shade thrower…

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    Oh and I agree, great recap as usual. Clean, concise, and well-written.

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks! 🙂

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        You’re welcome! I mean it!

  • One of your best, Beach! Is there anyone cuter or more genuine and real than Lisa Rinna? She’s such a breath of fresh air. So sick of the trolls Brandi and Kyle. Brandi needs to quit the booze and pills and act like an adult and a mother. Can someone please tell me why is Kim upset over Eileen “meddling” in her and Kyle’s business? She has practically invited Brandi to weigh in and get right between them. At least Eileen is coming from a good place, trying to get sisters to get along, while Brandi only causes discord and ‘acts’ concerned.

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      Dim-sum-Kim has SO much nerve attacking anyone who is calling her out on her sobriety when she has put it all out there for the world to see. That drive to the poker game was on the Krazy Train and everyone knew it, including the entire viewing public who watches this mess! (me–lol).

      I simply cannot understand why anyone would go on national television when they are obviously using fentanyl patches or another very strong cancer pain medication. Kim is a mess–there’s a new picture out of her where one eye is soooooo droopy and she looks 75 years old. If she doesn’t get real and go (seriously) into rehab, she’s going to be dead in a year, mark my words.

      • I am so happy people are finally seeing right through Kim’s manipulation. She uses her addition as a crutch to play victim . Last night when confronted she played up how much stress she’s under blah blah.

        • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

          I have to say, I think Kim is THE MOST manipulative person in this entire cast (and that is saying something compared to the conniving Kyle). But that’s just par for the course with junkies. Two things you can count on: lies and manipulation!!

          • RonnieIsBack

            I agree. I think Kathy came along to watch her.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            I agree!

      • RealitytvJunkie

        Totally agree. I absolutely HATED that. Way to brush and belittle everyone’s concern over you. Crying about how no one understands/care one minute then “blah blah blah’ the next! No wonder Kyle says “that’s what Kim does” no sane person wants to be on that roller coaster.

        • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

          Lisa Rinna nailed it when she said that Dim Kim loves that people are fighting OVER her because it takes attention away from the real problem, which is junkie Kim!

          Kyle needs to go to Alanon stat!

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Suesseroo…I LOVE Lisa Rinna more with each passing episode…she is simply great and she and Eileen are truly saving a season.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      ITA Seuss. Eileen and LisaR have every right to stand up and confront Kim when she has behaved the way she did in the car and in Eileen’s house.

  • Chloe

    Great recap. Yolanda is the voice of reason. Love her for her spirit and being a positive influence on Brandi. Brandi needs some help and guidance. Time to grow up chica.

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Chloe… and YES..no time like your 40s to begin growing up!

  • chacha1

    I am hoping Ken was forced to invite Brandi to that party and didn’t Brandi make fun of Mohammeds speech ….. I also hated it when LisaR went up to Brandi and hugged her and called her beautiful … Vince seems to be always around, strange … and Harry Hamlin is never present …. what is up with Vince, something just isn’t right about him with his little parties …..

    • Yolie

      Brandi use to like Mo. I suspect he stopped talking to her after she pulled him into fishgate. Now she’s making fun of him and questioning his friendship with Lisa V. What a jealous and evil bitch.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Vince is apparently starving….and locked up against his will…remember the peering in the garage window lol.

    • Jennymckitty

      Do you think that outside of reality TV, there is a universe where Ken would think to invite Kim, Yolanda or Brandi to an intimate surprise birthday party for Lisa?

  • Dave

    Brandi’s crack ass will never be even close to half of the amazing women around her. Lisa looks beautiful! They all look beautiful and yes they are older than Brandi but I can’t wait to see how wickedly horrid she looks like when and if she reaches their age especially with all the drugs, alcohol and unprotected sex she’s are having. I’m so sorry for her poor children, they are better off with Eddie and Leanne.

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      Brandi is really something the way she referred to Lisa as a 73 year old. Brandi looks like a trashy blown up porn doll wearing a bad weave, while Lisa is absolutely gorgeous!

      • RonnieIsBack

        she looks like Wayland Jennings puppet Madam…

        • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

          Bahahahahahahaha! OMG–you are so right!!!

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      I am fully convinced that bitterness really shows on a persons face. Brandi and Kim are perfect examples. As well as their lifestyles they have a very nasty, bitter, mean nature to contend with – no amount of money can right that.

  • TartLemon

    Yolanda is just as bad with her self medicating with the herbs, vitamins and supplements as Kim is with her drugs and alcohol. Yolanda’s liver, kidneys, heart and brain can only absorb and process so much of that before it reaches a toxic level. I have no medical training, and don’t profess any.

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      Yolanda needs to eat a good bacon cheeseburger and I bet she’d feel so much better than hanging on to her psychosomatic illness, while cleansing and starving herself.

      If she comes on the reunion looking great–or films next season, I will know for 100% sure that I’m right that she’s got Munchhausen because “her LOVE” is sick of her whining ass.

      • RonnieIsBack

        LOLOLZ
        And if this bish Name Drops Just on moe time…….egaddds.

        • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

          IKR? It’s tiresome–plus the way she condescends over her servants is SO annoying and belittling–like when she was talking about being ‘fat’ to her plump housekeeper. She’s just so rude!!

    • RoundAbout

      If you take Lyme Disease out of the equation, a lot of Yolanda’s symptoms sound exactly like what any menopausal woman experiences. Taking into consideration that sometimes, some herbs can intensify these symptoms, maybe she just needs to go see a competent GYN to get her hormones in better balance.

      • Rebecca

        YES!! Thank you so much for saying this. Clearly, Yolanda is in menopause- every symptom she describes is the definition of menopause. Some women have very few symptoms, she’s one of the unlucky ones who have multiple, difficult symptoms. But a good obgyn could help her enormously, if she would only pursue traditional medicine as devotedly as she does alternative therapies. Yo may have great style, but I don’t think she’s very bright. Hormone therapy would solve most of her stated problems.

  • RealitytvJunkie

    I now understand the infuriation of watching Kim lie to everyone and re-write history to cover her addiction. I no longer blame Kyle for outing Kim in the limo during season one. The problem was that what Kyle said was TRUE. Her ADDICTION stole that house, and if she’s relying on people to hide her addiction, she probably shouldn’t try to vilify them. It’s infuriating to watch her be so incredibly deceptive. The “blah, blah, blah” to LisaR was as lame and obvious as the rest of her tactics. Last week if you could take a screen shot of her lunch w/ Kyle & Eileen, you could see Kyle w/ a look of anguish and anger and Kim sitting across from her with smug satisfaction at her sister’s distress. I’m now seeing that alienating Kyle from other potential interventionists is part of Kim’s cycle of addiction. She did it in S1 too, when she sat back and let the war continue when all she had to do was speak up to end it… she was using then too. And watching Brandi consider an intervention while she’s at war w/ the one go-to source to actually follow through on it is eye opening.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      I saw that look on Kim’s face at that lunch, when she turned her head and had that half smile while staring pointedly away. Like the cat that got the cream.

  • Birdie

    It makes complete sense that Brandi and Kim are clinging to each other, even aside from the addiction issues. They are both desperate for attention, selfish, self absorbed wrecks who love to see their worlds crashing around them so everyone can be talking and fighting about them. Brandi was seething at Mohamed and the other women honoring Lisa, and the only comeback she could manage was snarking about their ages. Neither Kim or Brandi can deal with not being the center of everything, and they both work tirelessly to stay there.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Exactly…that is what dumb bimbos do…when they have nothing else they throw out the “age” card.
      Bishes better hope and pray they look that fabulous and have money when they reach 50+
      Brandi’s face will look like that puffy Madame doll of the 70s watch.

  • RonnieIsBack

    Brandi and Lemons Yolanda wearing the same dress, in different colors…how…nauseating…
    Glad Lisa called out that heaux Brandi and was like “How did you make the cut?” Papa Ken invited her and was like “you better damn well behave” too funny.
    Lisa R is funny as chit and says what she means…I just cannot understand why she is so dayum sensitive when it comes to twitter….#actors
    Yoga guy was like “whatever bish” when Yo said “zhez sober for tinty-one dayz…”
    I love Eileen but does she feed Vince? His azz was woofing down those scallops and salad like it was his last meal…

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      Can’t stand Yo, Brandi, and Kim–so sick of Yo and her phony Lyme disease but she’s miraculously healthy when filming comes around. Kim with her stumbling over words, droopy-ass right eye, and whack-a-doo behavior and Trashi Tampon deflecting ALL her bad behavior onto others. Bravo needs to flush these turds down the toilet once and for all.

      Love the Lisas and Eileen!

      • TartLemon

        I totally 100% agree. Keep the Lisas and Eileen. Add some other cast members who show the fabulousness of BH and Malibu. It’s why I watch the show. Gotta say, though, I’m a bit miffed that Eileen and LisaR are being asked to perpetuate the Kim’s non sobriety storyline. They had to get the new girls to do it because obviously fan favorite, Lisa, wants nothing more to do with the boring and phony storyline.

        No more Richard’s sisters co-dependency show. Kim CHOOSES to be a drunk and take pills. Look at all the attention it gets for her. Sister Kyle is right there beside her sucking up the lime light. MOVE ON. No more Yolanda or Brandi either.

        I don’t doubt Kyle is concerned for her sister. What other story line does she have? I have my own Family issues and don’t really give a shit about Kyle’s. STOP LITTERING MY TV SHOW ABOUT THE FABULOUS LVP WITH THE KIM TRIPE.

        • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

          I so agree with you that Eileen and Lisa should not involve themselves in Kim’s relapse issues! Kim is 50 years old and as you said, it is her CHOICE to continue doing what she does. She might die and if she does, it won’t be Kyle’s or anyone else’s fault. It will be 100% Kim’s fault.

          No one can make another person change–no one. First, the addict has to be honest enough with herself to know there is a problem (which Kim refuses to do) and then, she has to have the courage to change-and I don’t know that she does.

          What I do know is that Kim is sick enough to enjoy all this attention–it’s more than she’s gotten since she was a little girl and it makes me sick. I don’t want to see their messed up family relationships–like you, I have had to deal with my own and I don’t want to see it.

          I’m with you! I want to see the fabulous Lisa and her wonderful life where she doesn’t pull herself down into the dregs of others’ lives; she simply enjoys her own. I want to see the high heels, the clothes, the fabulous houses, etc. Fuck the Bitchard sisters and Trashi Trashville. And those three cane take Fake Yo with them!

        • Hi TartLemon! Kim really needs to get off this show and go into rehab. Kim does not like Eileen because she sees right through Kim. Kim goes to the “dark place” and thinks everyone does not like her, when she is off the wagon. I so wish that all the ladies would listen to Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson about Kim. She is not in a good place and as Kyle Richards said “it will not turn out good.”

          • TartLemon

            IMO, Kim doesn’t need anymore rehab. She’s been 5 or 6 times already so it’s become more like a spa visit to clean up for the next round of binges. Kim has all the tools rehab can give her, but CHOOSES not to use them.

          • Rebecca

            Amen. You said it perfectly. I agree with everything you said. It’s infuriating to watch this play out, over and again. Kim has made her choice, obviously, that was clear when she chose to leave rehab after only a few days, several years ago. Brandi is a terrible person, and an even worse friend. Yolanda needs psychological help in order to see that her “disease” is caused by inadequate nutrition, and eating disorders. Give me LVP, Eileen and Lisa R – they’re smart, funny, rich ladies with their chit together ! I don’t find them boring at all!

    • BeachSpin

      HAHAHAHA…poor Vince just wants to be fed and left alone to gamble. LOL

  • RonnieIsBack

    Great recap Beach!

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Ronnie!! 🙂

  • CNN

    I know this is a reality show but sobriety is far more important than ratings. Addressing a person’s issues with drugs and or alcohol on camera does not help them it humiliates them. I agree they should be worried about Kim but publicly humiliating her is just wrong.

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      I happen to agree with you but Kimbecile is 50 years old and it’s up to her to take responsibility for herself. And it’s up to everyone else (Bravo included) to stop enabling her drinking/using.

      Bravo is a POS network to exploit this addict, who is clearly struggling with relapse–but Kim needs to find the courage to admit she’s got a problem and the strength from within to change it.

      • CNN

        I disagree with you, 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals. First one and then another and then two at a time, Lisa R and Lisa V in her face. It was too awkward and I wouldn’t have been as patient as Kim was.

        • TopGear

          Sorry but disagree 100%.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            I’m with you–Kim’s been pulling this shit for YEARS!

        • Rebecca

          Then you are falling for her deflection BS, just as Lisa R and Lisa V pointed out. Lisa Rinna has been on target about the entire addict/secrecy outing that needs to happen because the addicted person depends upon those around her to keep her secrets, and not expose her to the world. Kim manipulates everyone into doing it her way – the addicts way – and that’s a one way street to a spiral downward that often leads to death. To reply, “blah, blah, blah” to people who are genuinely trying to help you, when it’s quite obvious you are unable to help yourself, is the epitome of the selfish, dismissive, projection an addict uses to deflect unwanted meddling. Kim wants them to leave her alone so that she can use all she likes, without their interference. The ONLY way to combat this, short of rehab, is to call the addict out and speak the truth. Addicts hate the truth, because there’s nowhere left for them to hide. Kim’s a mean person, maybe because of her disease, or maybe because it’s her character to be that way. All these women have catered to her, except Lisa R and Eileen, and coddled her, keeping her secrets safe, and the result is she’s still using. She needs honesty and confrontation, in order to get back on the road to sobriety.

      • TopGear

        Agreed. Nasty nasty nasty Kim. Two people are expressing concern and she says to them “blah blah blah.” How about “thank you for your concern but I would prefer not to discuss it.”

        • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

          She’s really such an asshole!

          • TopGear

            Big time! I’m a fan of your comments, btw.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Thank you! 🙂

    I am so done with the Kim show. I don’t like watching anything but the Lisas and Eileen. I LOVE Eileen! I LOVE Lisa Lips! I love Lisa Vanderpump. It’s funny how Brandi is still caught up on Lisa and talks about her in almost EVERY.SINGLE. Th interview she does. It’s like chica, please, get over it. You will NEVER be as fabulous, as sane, as pretty, as wealthy etc etc as Lisa Vanderpump. Oh and please stop with the I’m a spring chicken and the ladies are old hens….They are older than you maybe by ten years or so. That DOES NOT make them ancient. N Brandi G, I hope one day you look as beautiful as they do, bc even now with the botched botox and lips, you just ain’t pretty.

  • Jennymckitty

    How old does Brandi think she is? She isn’t much younger than the rest of the cast. She is vastly less mature but not younger.

    • TopGear

      She acts like she’s a 20-something hanging with senior citizens. I think Lisa and Kyle look younger than ran down Glanville.

  • Addie2U

    There was no need for Brandi to tell the viewing audience she still had her “flow” — unless she forgot we all saw her tampon string!

    • TopGear

      That was another classless moment compliments of the RHOBH resident trashbox.

    • Birdie

      Brandi’s the only woman who would ever want to be congratulated for bleeding every month. Kudos, Brandi.

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      Right? I mean–who needs to know that. Besides, 55-60 year old women who take HRT also have periods. Brandi is so FOS.

    • Dave

      She’s a class act!

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      That’s just Brandi advertising her wares for her next victim/boyfriend.

  • TopGear

    Last night I thought Kyle proved Brandi’s point somewhat. I don’t blame Eileen or Lisa at all for being concerned and frankly, I was stunned that Kyle kept dismissing them. These strangers care about Kim’s issues more than Kyle. That’s a problem! I understand LVP not giving a sh*t since Kim took a crap on her several times for being helpful.

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      Eileen and Lisa R have the right idea–and if Bravo wasn’t a bottom-feeding network, they’d realize it too: that most are ENABLING Kim. She needs to be called out but more than that, she needs to be honest. She’s a pathological, manipulative liar. And I’m not sure that she can change at this late stage of life.

      • TopGear

        You’re right. She’s an addict, who fell off the wagon – uses and then looks to blame someone else- it is CLASSIC addict behavior- she needs to go back into rehab. Kim should not be allowed on this show. And I’m scared to see what will happen when Brandi turns on Kim and uses all the secrets she has shared with Brandi to hurt her.

        • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

          Brandi is so toxic and so impulsive that I can see her really hurting Kim. She’s already hurt Kyle and Kim’s relationship, which is just such an a-hole thing to wedge herself between them.

          Brandi is a toxic, ratty-haired (that weave!!!), disgusting pig of a has-been model. She needs to go pronto!

          • TopGear

            Oh you know thats coming. When Brandi first came on the show she talked so bad about Kim and now she is her savior from her sister. It will not be a pretty sight when she turns on Kim and it will definitely happen. That’s what she does, she becomes their friend, then stabs them in the back. She did it to Lisa V last season.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Exactly–it’s just a matter of time. You know, the only friends Brandi has is her ex-model friend Jennifer (who I believe hangs around with Brandi just to get her puffy blown up face on TV) and that hanger-on hairdresser who she needs to hide that weave in her ratty hair. I don’t think Brandi really has any true friends because she’s the worst friend I ever saw in my life!

          • TopGear

            Yes, she is. Addicts love to stick together. Brandi and Kim are close because they are both addicts and horrible friends.

          • Birdie

            Jennifer’s face!! OMG, I may have nightmares.

          • Dave

            Her face may be Nightmare on Elm Street attractive but at least someone is finally asking the right questions in regards to Kim and her “sobriety.”

          • BeachSpin

            OK Dave do I have permission to use that if her mug ever graces our screens again…because it’s too perfect a description!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            I agree she’s asking the right questions–but she needs to address those to the right person and not talk about it on national tv. This is a convo she should have in private with Kim. But Brandi is ALL abut Brandi, as we all know.

          • BeachSpin

            And why does she hang around so happily with someone with obvious substance issues…something about her seems off to me.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Well it is true that no one but Kim will film with Brandi–but I agree, their relationship is really bizarre–and the way Brandi was so nice to Kyle on the way to the poker party and then just attacked her for no reason. She’s obviously has another agenda…

          • BeachSpin

            Whoops sorry Heels, I was unclear…I mean why would a recovered addict like Jen hang out with a lush like Brandi??

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Beach, that’s an excellent question for which I really don’t have an answer. The only thing I can think of is that Jennifer has so much time behind her that it doesn’t tempt her at all. Although I have to say, of all the recovering alcoholics/addicts I’ve known, I’ve never seen a one hang out with someone who drinks like Trashi Brandi does. Social drinking–like 1- 2 glasses of wine–yes–but falling down drunk?

            The ONLY reason I can think of is that Jennifer wants to be a reality TV star. She’s been on several different programs–it seems any time she can get her puffy mug on screen she’s there. She was even on celebrity wife swap for a few brief scenes with her ex bf, Andy Dick(head).

            I think that has more to do with it than anything else!

          • I agree 100%!!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            IKR? She’s been seeing Trashi’s doctor for sure.

          • RealitytvJunkie

            The thing is that a good friend would talk to the addicts family and get her help. Brandi isn’t an asshole for not protecting Kim’s addiction, she’s an asshole for making Kyle feel like she did something wrong by not protecting Kim’s addiction. Kyle lacked tact when she outed Kim but let’s look at Kim’s season 2 behavior and at least recognize her addiction was really bad and if it weren’t for the outing she would probably be dead now.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            I agree with you–because she has NO freaking idea what Kyle and Kim have been through. Their mother was a raging alcoholic–sadistic and as screwed up as they come.

            Kyle IS an attention whore of the worst variety and she’ll use anything (including her sister’s addiction) to whore herself out!

  • CoolBreeze15

    I’m lost on this show b/c I don’t watch it lol, but Brandi looks like an old mess! Seems to me though that the short time that I did watch this show these ladies minus Brandi don’t carry themselves like the fools on RHOA. Now Lisa PAID right?! Unlike Nene you don’t see her walking around bragging about her real wealth and clothes! Take notes moose!

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      The moose is as low rent as they come!

    • Hey CoolBreeze….PREACH!!!

  • Dave

    Anyone notice the vacant stare from Eileen’s husband while she was rambling on about this insane flock of women and their obsession with their lady parts was absolutely hysterical. It’s as if his only saving grace at that dinner came in the form of scallops and salad.

    • BeachSpin

      LOL…he always tunes out when Eileen talks about them. He doesn’t know what’s going on, nor does he care. Too funny.

    • Haha! Those scallops and salad looked delish! Eileen’s hubby was like I’m not wasting this free lunch. LMAO!

  • colleen

    1. With yoga class in session, I thought it was last week’s rerun for ten minutes!
    2. “Yo’s lemon scented wings” Good one, Beach Spin
    3. Lisa &Kyle’s tea = Ackward. They have nothing in common
    4. Eillen’s hubby very stupid or wants more camera time to invite same women over for a reading that takes place at a poker game
    5 Lisa V looked radiant at party— would not like to be her friend, but she’s a classy broad

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      I’m kind of disappointed that Lisa forgave Kyle when I really believe that Kyle was driving the bus last season. Brandi was fully on board but Kyle has been jealous of Lisa since season 1 when Lisa became the fan favorite. She should have kicked BOTH those insidious vipers to the curb and left them there.

      • Yup! I couldn’t agree more. And Kyle is still a bitch to Lisa V. At her gay party, Kyle barked at Lisa “This is not about YOU” as Lisa was trying to comfort her. Then last night she snapped at Lisa again. Kyle hates Lisa for some reason and can’t seem to forgive for “whatever” she believes Lisa has done.

        • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

          Oh I know! And Lisa hugged her! Vyle Kyle is a horrible friend and I fear it’s just a matter of time before she burns Lisa again.

          • Thank God Lisa is not stupid and knows exactly who Kyle is…a bitch!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            That’s true enough. Lisa will never allow herself to be too trusting of Kyle ever again. Personally, I would have thrown her out with the rest of the trash (Brandi).

        • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

          I thought Kyle’s TH comment about Ken inviting Brandi to the party was bitchy too. No need for it.

  • LovetoLoveLoversareforLoving

    I’m sure it’s been said here over and over, but I have to say Yolanda seems to be doing so much harm to her health with her “holistic, non-traditional” “therapies”. If she had a few healthy meals a day rather than fist-fulls of herbs and supplements that are not overseen by the FDA I’m sure she would look and feel a million times better. Her symptoms seem to be like a mixture of silicone poisoning, (her breasts seem augmented to me) and long-term anorexia, and menopause. I’m not against eastern or holistic treatments, but when you choose that path over traditional medicine, as opposed to in addition to and under the auspice of traditional medicine you are really putting your life at risk. Look at what happened to Steve Jobs, he pursued holistic therapies while his cancer spread and it was too late for traditional treatment to save him. Yolanda seems desperately unhappy, she should divorce David, sell the Malibu house for the 7-8 million she could maybe get for it, and learn to know and love herself. It’s never too late, even if it’s the last day of your life, to choose to be kind to yourself.

    • “Her symptoms seem to be like a mixture of silicone poisoning, (her breasts seem augmented to me) and long-term anorexia, and menopause.”<– Bingo!! I think you NAILED it. Most celebs and civilians don't realize the long term damage they're doing to their mind and bodies. The #1 culprit is Botox. Yolanda reminds me of a step-ford wife that would do anything (including risking her life) to please Kind David. Who by the way is a serial cheater and will likely grow tired of a sick wife and leave her for a much younger version of herself.

      • LovetoLoveLoversareforLoving

        Yes yes and yes! The reason I don’t do botox is because I think it causes long-term autoimmune disease. The other day I was at a neighbors house and her daughter was there, every inch of her had been injected, nipped, tucked, sucked, plumped, you name it. Sadly she had completely erased her middle-eastern heritage and looked like your typical white blonde California beach-babe. So there she was with her immobile face, telling me about how she was suffering from debilitating auto-immune disease, and all I could think of was, “hmmm so you’ve been injecting poison into your body for years not to mention multiple surgeries and implants, and you wonder why your body is slowly killing itself?” But no one wants to hear any of that, do they?

        • THANK YOU! We think so much alike. How stupid can people be…to be informed Botox is poison and still agree AND pay to have themselves injected repeatedly with a toxin??? I blame the commercialization of our society. We’re living in a vanity above all world and common sense has gone out the window. It’s a damn shame.

          • LovetoLoveLoversareforLoving

            It’s all the more stupid when there are so many treatments that work even better than botox that don’t even require an injection. Sad to say, men are starting to get botox and fillers and the results are even worse. There’s a town in my area where many, many of the men have had face lifts, botox and fillers, and oh god do they look awful! Those procedures were never intended to be used on men.

          • I know and another example of how far people have lost their minds.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      Well said. A 21 day cleanse living on lemon and paprika water cannot be good for the body and she seems to do this regularly. Aren’t most of these detoxes pretty much useless anyway? The liver pretty much does that for us.

      • LovetoLoveLoversareforLoving

        Yes, all the detox and cleanse regimens have all been debunked as pseudoscience. Just another way to part rich and foolish people with their money.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        I so agree— YOYO seems to be in LALA Land most of the time. She needs to go visit her Mother who is dying, not going on stupid detoxes.

    • OhSnarkyMe

      That crap Yo is doing is nuts! She needs to eat organic healthy food. She’s doing herself serious harm.

  • It’s really sad Bravo chose to make Kim’s addiction a storyline and exploit her in this fashion. We all know Kim is not sober and probably hasn’t been in years. A true sober person going to AA the first thing she would have learned is the world doesn’t revolve around her. This woman is so pathetic she gives a bad name for people who really do try and live a sober life.

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      I wish I could upvote this a hundred–make that a thousand times! Bottom feeding A-HOLES!

      • Thanks Heels! ♥︎ It’s truly sickening what Bravo is doing. Andy/Bravo have no shame, all they care about is saving the show from the ratings slump last year by any means necessary. This is an all-time low.

    • OhSnarkyMe

      Do you remember when they had to halt production because Taylor’s husband beat her so badly she couldn’t film? Bravo just waited for her to heal up enough to be on camera. Nice. Really responsible. Why didn’t they report him to the police?

      • TartLemon

        IMO, that was a bs story. SHAFT is a LIAR.

        • YES!!!!

        • OhSnarkyMe

          Interesting, I really thought that part was true. However, all reality shows are fake, so maybe it was made up.

      • Hi OhSnarkyMe! I never believed Russell was abusive towards Taylor. I thought she was lying her butt off. But your point is spot on! Bravo is all about the money. They should have canceled the series when Russell committed suicide.

        • OhSnarkyMe

          Really? I thought all the wives had discussed it? It’s been a long time, but I seem to remember Camille being particularly adamant about the abuse. Who knows, maybe Taylor was just making it all up?

  • Mustang

    Oh goody, Amsterdam. The drug addict’s paradise. You head to the park Kim, we’ll all meet you there.

    • Susan Thorne Zavagli

      I would love see them smoking some weed..all of them

  • Gabby

    OMG Hilarious recap, Beach!

    So, yeah, this better be the last season of “Kim falling or not falling off the wagon” storyline. I don’t believe for one second that she’s even trying to stay on track. The Cancer pill(s)…yeah, you relapsed, Kim!

    The Brandi situation…as history tells us, people have to figure it for themselves. It will have to affect her directly in order for her to “get it.” Sad, but true.

    Lastly, these age insults…GROW UP, BRANDI! She’s in her 40s.

    • Hey Gabby! Exactly on all points. Brandi is pre-menopausaul her damn self. She looks older than most her castmates.

    • BeachSpin

      Hey Gabby and thanks! I totally agree…how long is this thing going to drag out? Brandi’s too dumb to remember that anything having to do with her period is a BAD idea to mention! LOL..her mannequin face is nothing to brag about.

      • OhSnarkyMe

        Dude, what did she do to her face? I can’t stand her, but she used to be pretty on the outside. She looks awful compared to how she used to look. She just looks weird!

  • Trippinhhard

    Great recap– that’s why I don’t watch, the recaps are better than the show.. Someone, anyone call the the ppl that put a 72 hour lock up for druggies, because KIM doesn’t know what the word sober means.. Kyle you are not able to handle KIM correctly, get your messy ass to the meetings, families need to know, the addict don’t control you, KIM is pulling all the strings.. Brand just needs to go away and take Yoyo fake sick ass with her and Kim the drunk..

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    One more thing that I just don’t understand. Brandi told Kim in the ride back home from the poker game that “she wasn’t making any sense.” Then she talked to another HW (which of course would be spread like wildfire) about how Kim took a pain pill that was not prescribed for her. Then she talks to Jennifer Giminez about the pain pill and they openly discuss for a good amount of time how Kim has relapsed.

    Why is Kim so upset with Kyle when Brandi has outed her FAR more this season. The reason: Kim can’t manipulate Kyle with her drugged out lies any longer–Kyle has been through too much. Brandi, on the other hand, is too stupid to know she’s being manipulated by one of the best in the business. Kim Richards is a creepily manipulative person, who pits people against people, and doesn’t EVER look past the superficial aspect of what can this person do for me.

    Brandi has called her a meth addict–not to mention it was BRANDI who outed to all the viewers that Kim had been so strung out in Paris that she carried a smelly poop-stained pillow for their entire trip.

    Kim knows JUST what she is doing. She’s just like her mother–and her mother was an amoral, sadistic, narcissistic, evil piece of work. Big Kathy is as frightening as they come and what’s really amazing is that these girls (Kathy, Kim, and Kyle) have no idea how their mother abused them. And it truly was abuse if even half of what House of Hilton says is true. And since there’s never been a lawsuit brought against the author, I’d say it’s pretty much on the money.

    • BeachSpin

      I need to read that book!

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Oooooh, chile–you won’t believe it! It’s a well written book too. It’s not written by some hack.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      Right on the money 4THH! As much as Brandi loves and excuse to have a row with someone she is definitely being manipulated by Kim here. I hope Kim is asked at the reunion what exactly she has been telling Brandi about Kyle and why she never tells Brandi that Kyle has been there for her but instead lets her put her sister down.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Thank you, Bev Hills! Exactly!

    • Sophia

      Interesting post that makes a lot of sense.
      Thanks for all of the background info. on KKK (lol) It explains a lot. No wonder Kim and Kyle are afraid of counseling. They don’t have the brevity to face the truth that is ruining their relationships.

  • Susan Thorne Zavagli

    why waste time on this nut case…..it really isn’t the groups business..it doesn’t involve them

  • noarguingwithstupid

    I’m kind of sick of Katie. She is always the victim and it is tiresome Sorry, I just had to get that out. She’s the biggest waste of time on the show. At least Kristin is consistantly entertaining!!

  • noarguingwithstupid

    Does DimKim have a sponsor? Does she go to meetings? I bet not. She likes to use and folks just need to accept it and detach. It’s all up to her.

  • Rhiannon True-badour Hill

    I think Kim is very narcissistic, she has a lot of classic behaviours, creating drama to get attention, totally unable to take feedback, is never wrong, has an inflated idea of her career, hence all the references back to earlier success and clearly chooses to undermine Kyle all the time, she can’t find much wrong with Kyle’s life so she focuses on the motherly dynamic that happens between them. And, there’s probably some jealousy. These women live in a world where looks, youth and success are everything, there’s clearly a difference between the two. The relationship with Brandi is probably there as a covert way of undermining Kyle, which is why Kyle thinks it’s a fake relationship designed to upset Kyle. Brandi, a total opportunist with sociopathic tendencies, is happy to play along with Kim, since Kim does have more traction as a performer. Brandi is bitter about her husband going off with someone more high profile, the others are really mean bitchy girls interesting that they forced her to sing at that party knowing full well that her husband had left her for a very big world famous singer, exquisitely evil. Needing to be beautiful, rich and famous in itself is a psychosis and these people as a result were bound to make perfect TV. I smile when I think they have all the money and fun anyone could ever want yet they are utterly miserable.
