Battle Lines Are Drawn: Bravo Releases #RHOBH Reunion Seating Strategy

Posted on Mar 18 2015 - 5:25pm by BeachSpin

Andy Cohen RHOBH

We are only a couple of weeks from a sure to be epic “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” reunion. This season has has been a stormy one, with exposed truth, lies, addiction, wine flings, with a few shoves and even a slap, adding to the dramatic fun.

Bravo has released a picture of the reunion seating chart, and clearly the network is going for the visual of brunettes vs blondes. As we all know, Eileen is the misfit left side blonde, and would probably rather be parked between the right side brunettes. Little dribbles of hot tea have been leaking out as to what fireworks to expect…fingers crossed that the actual show will match the hype!

All About The Tea_real-housewives-of-beverly-hills-season-5-amsterdam-01 RHOBH_reunion seating chart

This is what we have heard so far….

  • Lisa Vanderpump went after Brandi hard…maybe to make up for that smack heard around Amsterdam?
  • Lisa Rinna nails Kim for going after her husband, instigating Shardgate. Lisa apparently challenges Kim to fess up to simply baiting her to deflect from being called out as a lying through her teeth junkie.
  • Kim comes clean and admits that she has no dirt on Harry Hamlin, proving that Rinna was not out of line for blasting her deflection tactics.

What spin will Bravo choose to deal with their favorite addict falling off the wagon on national television…again? Will Eileen and Lisa Rinna be fan favorite standouts as they have been all season long? Will this be one long Richards bitch-fest, or will the viewers be treated to material that hasn’t been pounded into the ground? Will Brandi be challenged, or just patted on the head by the adoring Andy, for raking in the trashy drama? What outfit and hair monstrosities will our eyes have to recover from? We will soon find out!

  • twifan2

    WOAH! Eileen sitting next to Kim?! o.0

    • Bad Barbie

      I wonder if they are even that tight at the moment. There was footage aired showing Brandi discussing Kim, so Kim now knows that Kyle was not lying about that! Then again, Kim has no brain.

  • Basically the blondes on one side and the brunettes on another. And why is Eileen sitting next to Kim???

    • twifan2

      Kim wants to sponge off Eileen’s camera time?

  • Birdie

    Maybe Eileen is going to dramatically rise and demand to be on the brunette side…LOL.

  • Poor Eileen sacrificed for the sake of getting along.

    • MidwestMiddie

      Eileen should dye her hair brunette for the next few weeks. : )
      (I think Yolanda is the only natural blonde in that group.)

      • Bad Barbie

        The reunion was filmed weeks ago already.

        • MidwestMiddie

          Right ……
          Thanks.

          • Bad Barbie

            I wonder if Brandi and Kim are still friends?!

          • MidwestMiddie

            According to Andy, Kyle and Kim hadn’t spoken to each other
            for 4 months before the Reunion. Is that believable?
            Chances are Kim and Brandi are still “friends,” as
            defined by Bravo’s Real Housewives definition. : )

    • RonnieIsBack

      LOL Eileen will handle herself and I cannot wait. I wanna see if they turn their backs to her like YoLemons did to Brandi kept calling her Jaqueline..chit my brain…what was her name (really pretty Miss Universe)

      • itsjustme

        The way Eileen and Lisa V choose to handle it with class vs the others with screeching. I’ll take the class ANY day!

    • Bad Barbie

      Eileen can throw down with the best of them though.

  • Sophia Z.

    Can they just restrain Brandi, put a mask on her and place her on a dolly, Hannibal Lechter style?

    • italiano bambino

      NO because i wanna hear what she tells kyle and lisa V 😀

      • Sophia Z.

        Even Hannibal had the ability to talk with the mask. I didn’t include duct taping
        her mouth. Trust me, I want to be there if and when (someday) if it ever sinks
        in that she is the one that brings all of the drama & victimization on herself. That would be one giant lightbulb abover her head.

      • RonnieIsBack

        Exactly! You know she is going to spill the tea…bc she has nothing to lose.

  • italiano bambino

    I cannot wait and see how brandi pissed off all this woman LOL… i know i know.. 😀

    • RonnieIsBack

      hehehe I wish they would just bring back DanSmell..

  • italiano bambino

    Shifting little the convo but Housewives related. What’s holding NJ to start? forget Miami 🙁

    • WestCoastFeed

      One blogger has claimed that the same production company films Manzo’d with Kids and RHONJ, so they have to wait for Manzo’d to get done. I’m just guessing from twitter, but I think they have just begun filming Manzo’d. The boys recently opened another new restaurant and the boys just got back from a trip to Bourbon country in Kentucky with their father. Jim Marchese has speculated that filming will begin in April. But Bravo has just begun floating names of possible new NJ housewives and, if I remember right. they usually begin that more than a month before they begin to film. So my guess is that filming will begin in May. Anyone else have any speculation?

      • Susan Thorne Zavagli

        NJ was terrible…it had good ratings because of Teresa leading up to prison…..

        • Bad Barbie

          and those twins killed it for many.

    • Bad Barbie

      NJ is not being even filmed…. Miami was removed for good no? I wonder how Mama Elsa doing?

  • MidwestMiddie

    Seating Charts – newsworthy?
    roflmao

    • RonnieIsBack

      yup bc based on seating that shows you who is in the hotseat and also the dynamics of the women..it is telling…

      • Bad Barbie

        Yep it does! Remember when Tre snuffed Andy?! LOL

  • Susan Thorne Zavagli

    I think they’ll need a frying pan for Brandi….this reunion is going to be ugly

  • Jennymckitty

    Poor Eileen. She drew the short straw. If rumors are true, Yolanda only filmed a few hours so she was stuck on that couch with Kim & Brandi for 10 hours alone.

    • RonnieIsBack

      I think the The Rose Eileen can handle her own…and she won’t pull that rude turn your back to peeps like Yo Lemons did to pretty girl (dayum what’s her name – beauty queen that Brandi and Kyle were jealous of)…

      • Bad Barbie

        Joyce. Yeah and the things that Yo was calling her and saying… I really didn’t like Yo last season.

        • RonnieIsBack

          Yassss!!!!!! Joyce pretty fiesty Joyce who lived for her man’s peen….thanks!

  • doggiedaddy

    Brandi next to Ms Andy, not likely.
    Pump is ALWAYS next to him as is Kyle.

    • Bad Barbie

      Hmm…. that is the seating chart pic. B is next to Andy.

    • itsjustme

      In the sneak peak I saw. It was Brandi and Kyle siting next to Andy.

  • MidwestMiddie

    I hope Eileen dyes her hair color to brunette or wears a brunette colored wig.
    That would tick off Bravo Andy for sure…….LOL!!

    • RonnieIsBack

      They already taped the reunion….I cannot wait to see this chit.

      • MidwestMiddie

        Oh well ……….
        Thanks for the info.
        : )

  • MidwestMiddie

    Just read that Kyle said she NEVER knew her relationship with Kim would be sooooo awful
    on the show and in front of millions of viewers. LOL
    NONSENSE!!
    She knew exactly what would happen. After all, Kim and Kyle share the same storyline
    of family discord and, both, are willing to put it all out there for the $$$$$$$.
    Without each other and their troubles, they would have had nothing to bring to the show.
    Beverly Hills has so many more lovely, wealthy and intelligent women to have on Bravo.
    Look at what Bravo has served up to the viewers……..
    The Richard Sisters, the low end of BH “society.”

    • RonnieIsBack

      Yeah she knew and so did Kim…which is why the crack heaux is begging to sign up for another season….they just want that money…

  • RonnieIsBack

    Oh you already know Kyle is smelling blood and is going to blast Brandi and I cannot wait. She has been wating to tear into her for years bc she stole her BFF (Lisa V) and just needed Lisa V to dump Brandi…sneaky bish, but Brandi has this coming for turning on the Queen.
    Kim/Rambles..I think I will mute the tv when she is on. Cannot STAND her..get over it, you phucked up and messed up your career and now you are at the mercy of your green-eyed sister Kyle who control the purse strings and love to rub it in your face.
    I hope Lisa R and Eileen give them hell.
    Lisa V will come off looking victorious and classy, as she should bc they put her through the ringer last year…#PayBackIsALisaV
    Good Morntink Everyones (picture Madea’s voice!

    • Bad Barbie

      I think this is a better script. LOL

    • BeachSpin

      Bravo and DITTO!

  • DLister

    Why do these lame-ass reality shows insist on calling it a “reunion?” It’s an Epic Catfight.

  • itsjustme

    I just saw a sneak peak of the reunion. I don’t know what to think. I don’t know if it’s going to be “epic” of if it’s just hype. I guess I’ll have to watch and find out.

  • colleen

    So Brandi is one of Andy’s favs?, I can’t tell who he likes/dislikes. I thought he was gaga over Tre; peeps say no way. It didn’t look too friendly on WWHL with Brandi saying she was “joking” with Jeff Lewis

  • Rochelle Barozzi

    I can’t wait. Gathering my popcorn and wine….LOL
