It’s finale night on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” and Bravo is moving east to New York. We begin with Kyle and Kim in their most dramatic fluttering moo moos awaking to a new day in Palm Springs. Kyle is cooking, and Kim aggressively announces that she is super sober and can take care of her own darn life. We are brought back to her shrieking “YOU’RE LYING!” at her sister, likely brought on by the fact that she was too hammered to recollect the original conflict to begin with. Kyle sadly comments that their dear old bossy mother taught her daughters how to shove their dirty moo moos under the carpet, because ignoring problems keeps the shrieking to a minimum. We learn of Nicky Hilton’s book signing, which brings a renewed opportunity to continue the reinvented dysfunction in public. The sisters are excited to start the whole twisted cycle anew, especially because Brandi isn’t invited.

We jump over to Lisa and Harry’s where the family is preparing to rip down their swing set, as a farewell to childhood. It’s a bittersweet family moment, and Lisa uses it to reiterate how out of line Kim was in Amsterdam, to insinuate anything weird about Harry or her girls. She admits that she irrationally blew, and wishes that she didn’t grace Kim with as much as a single splash of wine in her face. Nicky’s book signing event is kicking off at Kyle’s store, and the Richards family gathers to support her in the endeavor. We learn that Nicky was once an elected best dressed adolescent, as Camille pops in for a finale guest appearance. Kim and Kyle are killing it faking the love, as Nicky signs books, and icky sis Paris struts around like an arched back peacock. Kyle spills to Queen Lisa and Camille that she and Kim are upping their game at sisterly pretense, and Lisa nods, and agrees that it’s probably a good idea, because the whole situation is a bit hopeless anyway. Adrienne’s upcoming bash is discussed, which has clearly been dubbed finale central, and the question about whether Kim will challenge Brandi is floated.

Everyone is getting ready for Adrienne’s bash, and Mark the trusty roomie hairdresser is giving Brandi a mini therapy session, as he does her hair. Brandi responds by expressing worry over her dad’s heart surgery, and throws in some nasty hatred for Kyle. We bounce around between cars, and the nugget about Vince living next door to the Jackson 5 trumps all of the other pre-event chatter.

Queen Lisa picks up Kyle, and it’s fun to see them giggling together before a party. Kim is getting her makeup done, and is tirelessly trying to figure out who besides Kyle is the dirty liar. The gals all arrive in their black dresses and greet each other, as celestial beings in gaudy makeup swing around  from the ceiling. Kim and Monty show up, and Kim rambles on and on and on about her phony sobriety being challenged. Brandi and Lisa begin to officially beat a dead horse, rehashing the drunk slap and the flowery apology that followed. Brandi tearfully explains that her dad is dying, and Yo has been the only friend who has cared. Lisa expresses sympathy, but tries to explain that she doesn’t know her father, and Brandi maturely shoots back that she is missing out, because he’s way cooler than she and Ken and Giggy combined. Brandi whines that she is having constant panic attacks over her father’s condition, and denies acting hypocritically, because that doesn’t really jive with her chronic a**hole shtick. These two are working too hard on this hyped up quasi-frenemy dynamic, which in my mind has officially jumped the shark.

 

Kim confronts Lisa R, and accuses her of floating the idea of an intervention, and Lisa refuses to answer due to the fact that Kim is an unpredictable screamer. Lisa implies that the overall conversation with Brandi is being over simplified, and that Kim’s best pal Brandi can take over informing Kim that she’s a hot mess. Lisa looks weary, as Kim leaves the table in an angry huff. Kyle is peeved withLisa for allowing the fear of inviting Kim’s crazy wrath, to thwart her from confirming her story. An extremely odd and magically cheesy Maloof Hoof reveal occurs, as the women banter endlessly aboutLisa being a fraidy cat. Thankfully, the embarrassing visual briefly breaks the tension. Lisa asserts that she had already agreed to back off, and is resistant to get involved again, which frustrates KyleLisa understands that junkie siblings need backup, but stubbornly insists that silent backtracking keeps her blissfully away from a futile and depressing battle. Eileen points out that Kyle jumped into this because of Lisa’s exchange with Brandi, and Kyle reminds her that she defended her motives to Kim. Queen Lisa butts in and repeats the problem, perhaps thinking that a British accent could elevate the point. Eileen reminds Lisa R that she is the official horse’s mouth, which makes Lisa reluctantly relent, but with the caveat that having to interact with Kim about pretty much anything makes her skin crawl.

Kim bellows for Kyle, wearing her scariest bitch face, and when Lisa R tries to help, Kim firmly tells her and her lips to get lost. Lisa sharply points out that for Kim to need her validation over her sister’s word is twisted, and that Kim really doesn’t want to know the truth. Yolanda travels from group to group, playing the buttinski mediator, and I just want to shove her out of the way and tell her to SHHH! Lisa R thoughtfully clues Brandi in that their lunch convo is wreaking big time havoc, and Brandi agrees, and lazily labels the whole cast as toxic. In the midst of the turmoil, Mauricio’s mom and Adrienne’s boy toy hook Camille up with a prince, and it’s the most randomly awkward finale scene ever.

Kim approaches Brandi to make sure that she knows that she would never doubt a sister wreck. After Brandi tucks her exposed breast back into her dress, she admits that she’s worried about Kim, and believes that she needs friends that aren’t drunk all the time like she is. True enough. The two women bond over their worry for each other, adding a whole new disturbing dimension to their enabling kinship. Lisa R joins them, and just as it begins to look as though the discussion is becoming productive, Brandi becomes pissy when the others swoop in to join the drama. Brandi storms out, as we wrap up with the cast.

We end the season learning that Yolanda has relapsed, but is still a proud and annoying stage mother. Lisa Rinna remains a hustler, and surmises that life is about conflict, resolution and forgiveness. Eileen comments that you can’t write the craziness that happens with this bunch, as we read that she is currently in two less dramatic soap operas. Queen Lisa is just happy to be Max’s mum and is waiting patiently to become a grandmum. Kim is still caring for Monty and hanging with Brandi, and claims ‘sobriety.’ Kyle and Kim’s relationship is likely beyond repair, and they have not spoken since Kim’s dog mauled Kyle’s daughter’s hand. Brandi reminds us no one can change her, and whines one last time about being misunderstood. YAWN. No more yawning, because a sure to be epic reunion is right around the corner!

  • MidwestMiddie

    Thank you, Beach Spin!! Great Recap.

    IMO, Season 5 became pretty much nothing more than the Richard Sisters OLD story lines
    revisited. GAG! Bravo needs to look up the definition for – ENTERTAINMENT!
    Oh how exciting, the Hiltons showed up …… (Eye Roll) but where was Conrad, Jr?
    I still think Bravo should sign him up and have him become Brandi’s new love
    for Season 6 and maybe her future husband. Can you imagine? lol

    KEEP – Lisa V – Lisa R – and Eileen on the show and replace the others. I’ll bet Lisa R
    and Eileen could recommend new women for the show. Classy, Wealthy, Intelligent
    and Fun Women …… nothing like Kim, Kyle and Brandi.
    Yolanda should be downsized to “friend” status. She needs to concentrate on getting better.

    • Bad Barbie

      Baffles me why anyone classy, wealthy, intelligent and fun would want to be part of this circus. We all see what it shows about people. Look at LisaR, ish about her is about to come out on the reunion.

      • MidwestMiddie

        I agree and think an over-inflated ego is the common denominator and
        problem for each one.
        Bravo is Kyle’s Last Hurrah because no one remembers her from any of
        her previous film credits. She talks like she was a child-star. ROFLMAO
        She was unrecognizable before the RHBH.
        Her sister , Kim, was, in fact, the family’s only real child star but now Kim
        is just a shell of her former self. She’s as forgettable as Kyle.

      • Brattus Rattus

        I think the majority of them do it for business reasons. Come buy my “fill in the blank”. Thankfully, it’s gotten better and it’s not so in your face like it was there for a while. But from a business standpoint, pretty smart. Lisa V have her restaurants and got a spinoff show. Bethany got all kinds of crap. The list goes on and on….

  • Susan Thorne Zavagli

    The series needs something….a baby …a wedding……something…it can’t survive on Brandi Kim and Kyle

    • Bad Barbie

      Hmm… did you see LisaV “update” at the end. You may be onto something. She is waiting on Pandora to make her a grandmum

      • MidwestMiddie

        Lisa V – a Granny – would be a wonderful sight…..along with Ken, as
        a doting Grandpa……..however, I’m still proposing the super twist of having
        the paparazzi and out-of-control Conrad, Hilton Jr being hired by Bravo and
        hooking up with Brandi. Seriously……LOL!!!

      • Susan Thorne Zavagli

        missed the finale….will catch up….really though ….a baby for Pandora…hope so……we’ll have something to celebrate

        • Birdie

          Ken and Lisa as grandparents would breathe new life into this show.

          • Susan Thorne Zavagli

            Bravo……we need a baby!!!!!!!!!……….also Kim’s daughter Brooke

  • She Stinks!

    Nicky and her porn star sister may have been relevant in 2002, but now? Not so much.

    • Bad Barbie

      For real! Why the paps even follow these 2 hags is beyond me.

    • MidwestMiddie

      Their brother, Conrad, has been in the news and not for good reasons. He comes
      across as the most spoiled and nasty one out of the three.

    • chacha1

      but Nicky always flew under the radar, I like her

  • itsjustme

    I wasn’t able to watch the whole episode last night since I had to work early. All I have to say about the little bit I did see is…. Was it Kyles book signing or NIckies’? You’d think it was Kyles with all her friends there (most of who probably don’t know NIckie in person) and how she was the one greeting every one.. I never really thought one way or another about Kyle, but last night I could see why others think she is always making things about her…lol

    • Jennymckitty

      It was an event staged for Bravo. I think it was nice of Kyle to do it. It gave Nicky a lot of PR. Of course, it was in Kyle’s store which helped her out so there’s that.

      • Precisely!

      • Bad Barbie

        Don;t knock the hustle!

      • doggiedaddy

        One things the Hiltons need is more free PR.

      • misstc

        Anyone who spends a penny on her book would be an idiot – adding to their enormous fortune. Spend that money on oneself instead!

        • Jennymckitty

          So you don’t want me to mail the autographed copy I got for you? Gosh.

    • Bad Barbie

      It was hosted at her store because it was a book about 365 fashion looks. Makes sense. Just like every dinner and other events take place at one of the Vanderpump properties.

      • chacha1

        And those dinner parties at Yolanda’s where they are all about adoring her husband and putting him on a pedistal (sp)

    • chacha1

      well that is Kyle’s niece and I would do the same for mine ….

  • Nancy Krystofik

    Kim’s dog attacking Kyle’s daughter would be the last straw for me. It’s turned into an out for Kyle and family, as it should. I wonder if the daughter will sue Kim for damages, the family friend is taking it all the way, vicious dog-vicious owner. If Brandi continues her binge drinking, she’ll become more like Kim everyday, people under the influence forget things and black out the more they drink. Kim can’t even seperate what happened yesterday, to what happened today, that was freaky!

    • Bad Barbie

      Did you see the previews for the reunion? The incident comes up and of course, Kim is playing victim yelling a Kyle “You want to go there? You want me to tell the real story?” I bet in her brain, Kingsley was mad because they stole his bone and the kid deserved because he was defending Kim. Watch, she will say some ridiculous version.

      That would have been a deal breaker for me too. FACK THAT! My sister doesn’t trump my kids.

      • chacha1

        That is what bullies do, they scream their lies so that people back off and some people fall for it … Brandi does the same thing with her crying and her fake little girl voice

        • Bad Barbie

          Kim probably uses her “You want me to tell the real story” as intimidation and I can see this is the way she grew up abusing her sisters. She probably used to do all sorts of crazy things and then blame the sisters for it.

          I know kids that behave like this. I have a nephew that does this all the time. Kid got issues but his parents are the type to get offended if you reprimand their unruly and lyingass son. Needless to say, they are never invited over. This kid stole from us before, got caught and tried to spin the story to blame my niece. Crazy! When he did that, he did the same MO as Kim.. he was yelling at my niece for not taking the blame and said the same “You want me to tell the real story?!”. Little thing he didn’t know, we have cameras all over my house…. BUSTED!

          • chacha1

            I know what you mean, have one of those in my family, and just because they are family doesn’t mean I or my other family members will take that abuse, it was hard but had to be done …. they are toxic to the family

      • Nancy Krystofik

        I did see the preview, that’s what Kim said to Lisa R about her husband Harry, now asking Kyle if she wants to go there? kyle said her daughter could of lost her hand, what could Kim say or do to deflect the responsibility for that one, blame the niece? Maybe someone else owns the dog, like a Hilton, or Bravo. I wonder what she has on Harry?

        • Bad Barbie

          According to inside sources… nothing. She goes blank when #whatdidharrydo comes up.

      • Nancy Krystofik

        Yeah, fact that! How ridiculous can Kim be? It’s like she lives under a rock, or on a different planet. How could she not understand that she is at fault, that dog could of killed somebody.

  • doggiedaddy

    Everytime I see the Hilton sisters, my skin crawls.
    I found myself wanting to wipe down my TV with Lysol wet wipes to get rid of the stank.
    And please Bravo – enough of this sister v. sister crap.
    Where’s the glamour?!
    Where’s the entertainment?!
    Time to move forward not back, with the likes of inbreed princes and former botoxed ‘house’ wives.

    • MidwestMiddie

      Spot On!!!

    • Bad Barbie

      Paris still draws a crowd? I just would like to slap her weave off for putting Kim K on the “socialite” map. UGH!

      • doggiedaddy

        Kathy Griffin once referred to Paris as a cross between a
        spider and a dressage horse. Clopping around with all her limbs looking for the
        next victim to suck the life out of. That image has stayed with me and always
        brings a smile to my face.

        • Birdie

          The imitation she does of Paris is priceless…so GOOD.

      • misstc

        That Hilton clan is a joke; Nicki Hilton is to marry a Rothschild=the ppl who run the world with their money.

  • Jennymckitty

    Here are my questions…was that Monty’s wife with him and Kim. If he is married, why is Kim caring for him? Why did Adrienne have that party? Was it for a product or is she trying to get back on BH? Was that the “Prince” from Patti’s MM show? And how drunk was Brandi during her rambling exchange with Lisa?

    • Bad Barbie

      Why are people still calling him “your husband”? I heard someone say that last night.

      • misstc

        I thought the Prince was a German guy, shorter & chunkier with the pink speedo? Or did I miss an episode?

      • Jennymckitty

        Thanks, thought I recognized the ?Prince?

    • chacha1

      I did not see Monty’s wife who he divorced way back and has 2 children with ……

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Monty is married? I must have missed that fact. If he’s indeed married why is Kim taking care (hardly) of him?

    • misstc

      I don’t think that Prince was on Patti’s show and Brandi drunk? Do bears chit in woods?

    • GinaXOXO

      The only thing I can think of is that Kim’s house is close to where Monte is (was) getting treatment.

    • pixntrix

      I think that was another ex…remember Brooks wedding she was also there.

      • Jennymckitty

        For some reason I thought Bravo had labeled her as wife. Must have missed the “ex”. Is that who Kim told Lisa R she called when she said that Monty was gone during the car ride from hell.

  • Bad Barbie

    That whole scene with Brandi and Lisa. WOW! Brandi is unreal and seriously disturbed. Her maturity level is nonexistent. I used to cape for her betrayed spouse drama but now I can see why Eddie left her for Skeletor or anyone at that. If this is the way that she dealt with real life issues in her marriage then who can blame him!? Lisa is too good, I would have walked away. I felt embarrassed for Brandi when she said that her dad is “cooler than Lisa and Ken”, 8 yr old speak like this! UGH!!

    Kim- I seriously dislike Kim. I used to be a fan, not no more!

    Kyle- girl, let your sister learn the hard way. Show her what it is to really not be there. People need to learn the difference sometimes.

    LisaR- you really got all watered down and picked the wrong battle about saying the truth. Should have said the truth first and then shush Kim away. Know better next time.

    Eileen- she is funny. I like her and doesn’t back down for nothing.

    Yoyo- no wonder she relapsed. This is too much. Stay off this show and get better!

    LisaV- You lost me last season but you got me back this time around. Fierced! * gay finger snaps* WERK IT HUNTY!

    “You do magic now?” – Kathy Hilton. Best line in the history of RHOBH. LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO That was great!

    That was all folks!

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Yeah, this comment is spot on.

    • BeachSpin

      OH SNAP! Nailed it!

  • chacha1

    Brandi couldn’t wait to attack Lisa about not calling about her father and Lisa let her get away with it again ….. to be honest why should Lisa give a rats ass about Brandi’s father since Brandi thought Yolanda was more worthy of meeting those druggies than Lisa

    • Norrth

      Lisa should have asked Brandi why having a facial with Yolanda was a bigger priority than going home to be with her dad

    • Chloe

      That’s so true and also annoying about Brandi. She brought up the dad convo to deflect from the owning up to the slap. She didn’t want to hear about her bad behavior once again because you know that’s ganging up on her.

  • chacha1

    what is with these BH parties and everyone swinging on trapezes half naked with angel wings… hasn’t this been done to death?

    • Yolie

      Definitely dated and classless.

      • GinaXOXO

        Yes, but, that magic act was worse. Lame duck.

  • italiano bambino

    JMO. Lisa said she was done with Brandi WHY does she approach her? In her words there not friends. She likes to play this games with viewers. Sorry but if you Sooooo done with someone avoid her there was Nothing else to say in my eyes. Sorry Lisa V glad brandi left you eating your venom.

    • Birdie

      I like Lisa but I agree…her cat and mouse antics with Brandi are getting OLD, and she needs to quit repeating her same tired lines and just be done with her. It is starting to look contrived and it is definitely boring.

    • 3!13

      “They’re”. Sorry couldn’t help it. Lol

    • GinaXOXO

      Yes, Bam. I was glad too that Brandi turned her back on LVP and said no, I am not doing this. And, then I was glad Brandi walked away. Enough is enough. It is done. No one cares.

      • pixntrix

        I am also glad Brandi walked away when all the ladies came to hear their conversation. They should have let them work it out. I believe their conversation was on the right track.

        • GinaXOXO

          I am probably one of the few people that giggled when Brandi said what are they doing? “shoo fly”. OMG! That takes guts.

  • 900009

    Brandi has perfected the RH art of the “no tears crying.” I would think if Bravo had to choose between Lisa V and Brandi, they will choose Lisa V. They should all just refuse to work with Kim and Brandi…

    • Birdie

      Not to mention continuous panic attacks and anxiety.

  • Norrth

    Brandi wasn’t there? I thought she was more of a part of the family than Kyle was? WHAT? That’s a true comeuppance. Brandi should now realize that the Hilton -Richards clan is not embracing her as one of their own or as Kim’s “savior”.

    • GinaXOXO

      Did Kim say Brandi was out of town?

  • RealitytvJunkie

    I can’t help but chuckle when Kim makes a point of saying, “Hello, Maurice”

    I rate the whole season a B+. The main take away (for me) is Brandi needs the intervention more than Kim. I mean that. And to lie to Lisa Vanderpump and say her dad is dying is straight up low, even for Brandi. She was backed into a corner and doing everything she could to save face.

    • GinaXOXO

      I saw Brandi’s twitter in real time–her dad was in the hospital for weeks and it was touch and go.

      • misstc

        Yeah, but you heard the story of the boy who cried “Wolf!” too many times?? When Brandi is drunk, she cries at the drop of a hat!

        • GinaXOXO

          That helps me understand why she is taking heat for being upset over her Dad having health problems.

      • Brattus Rattus

        If my dad was in the hospital, “dying”, the last thing I’m doing is getting facial or going to a party.
        I don’t care who we are talking about at this point. My favorite, Lisa V, could have done this and I would have been disgusted. When my mom tripped and fell while walking the dog and had to go to the ER (fractured wrist, busted lip and all kinds of bruised), I left work and broke MANY laws to get there to be sure she was ok. To say we have a strained relationship is putting it mildly. When family is hurt or “dying” you skip the spa day and parties.
        Now, I am sorry for Brandi’s father and I am glad that he’s fine. She probably should have saved that card for the more appropriate time.

        • GinaXOXO

          She was at the hospital and left–then went back. When my Dad was in the hospital we were all there for the surgery and then took turns spending the days with him. To each their own.

          If you couldn’t see Brandi was upset that she had to be there then you weren’t paying attention. She didn’t want to be there and never once pretended to be happy to be there.

          • Brattus Rattus

            Then why go and ruin the event for people that wanted to be there? If she was so miserable and needed a break, sleep or get a massage. She went to the party and just really tried to screw it up from my vantage point- IMHO
            You know what, we can agree to disagree. I just hope that for people we don’t know, we can move on. We have different opinions. I don’t understand her and you do. It’s all good. Like you said, to each their own. We (you and me) seem to have similar family beliefs. When I had one of my surgeries, the same went. They took shifts. None went to parties and it was on Halloween – at the beach (huge deal). But that’s my family. Anywho, nice talking Brandi with you even if we don’t agree.

          • GinaXOXO

            Brandi had to go, didn’t she?? I assume that that is the one event they cannot miss via contract.

            I am glad we can get along. I have seen you mention health issues before and I hope you are doing well. I have mentioned my Dad getting surgery in April and the timing of this storyline couldn’t be worse. I am scared and don’t want my mindless reality show to remind me!! GUH

          • Brattus Rattus

            First off, screw this reality TV stuff and take care of you and your family. I know how crazy timing is. I hadn’t seen anything about your father so I’m sorry. When I first got my cancer diagnosis it was on every commercial. Then when I got my Terminal diagnosis… I can’t even tell you. I think Caner Centers of America took out a block of time just to remind me.
            As far as Brandi goes, I was going to post a link but you know what…not important. REALLY NOT IMPORTANT. Let’s just move on, yes? Ain’t none of these people paying our bills.
            Best wishes to you and your dad.

          • GinaXOXO

            Thank you, and best wishes to you. I am sorry to hear about your diagnosis. Hugs and nothing but the best wishes for you, Brattus.

            What is very interesting is that we all have our favorites and it seems that there is something in our own lives that connect dots that may, or may not, be there. Maybe Bravo presents just enough of whatever “that” is for us to take it and run with it.

            Here is an example: I understood why Brandi said her Dad is cooler than LVP, Ken, Giggy . . . Brandi is mad at herself. She shouldn’t have said it but I think she is overwhelmed and not aware of how irrational she is. Immediately in my mind I figured Brandi was feeling guilty about the time she spent with LVP and should have been with her Dad and blew it. She not only missed out on time with her Dad but it was for nothing but heartbreak because LVP is not her friend. She can’t go back.

            You see?? We didn’t see that. I believe it–it makes sense to me. Someone else with different life experiences will see it entirely differently.

            I have read a lot of posters views–especially in terms of addiction. There is so much projection. Sometimes when I read the comments I am taken aback by how many viewers have an addicted family member that has put them through hell.

          • Brattus Rattus

            This is a very true thought/statement. I (personally) think that if in most all of these RH shows the person causing the pain would own up to it instead of just an apology (I’m speaking to alllllll of them) they could really move on. If we were friends in “real life” and you did something to me and apologized to me, I would expect it to never happen again. I would expect that you knew what you did and understood it was wrong. If you did the same thing, or close to it, we would have a long discussion about it and I would let you know this is it, don’t blow it – or depending on the issue, I might be done and walk away. If you were really my friend, you would know the good, the bad and the ugly. You would know what you were doing was jacked up. Where the line is drawn is – what does my friendship matter to you and/or do you think you can get over on me. This is me in life. I’m a Ride or Die kind of person. I got you if you got me. If you screw me over, you’re done. I think if (in this case) Brandi has just played herself out without her explanation too many times. Your understanding of her – AMAZING. Mine – Seen it with too many snitches and don’t trust them. They will never have your back. You – Don’t know you but I’ll take you after a day of chatting over a few years of watching her. We’re all just different.

          • GinaXOXO

            LOL. I think the way the whole thing is set up (Bravo/producers) that it is impossible for them to trust each other. And . . . forgiveness?? I have heard a few HWs say that watching it is so hard–they will reconcile and be ok until it airs and then it is fresh again. That would be so hard.

            This isn’t real life. Most of us would NEVER scream at our girlfriends or slam their family to get them back. Never. No way. And, if it happened most of us would cut that person out of our lives for our own good. But, on the RH shows they have to work it out and “move forward”. Can you imagine how hard it would be to sit at dinner or go on vacation with someone you do not like or trust??? I’d be drunk and on zanax too!! (kidding)

          • Brattus Rattus

            Makes you wonder – we probably need the money way more than they do yet we wouldn’t do it. They have the money and would. Hummmm
            I understand business but screw that. I’m not breakin bread with anyone I don’t like. Way too many knives involved. 😉

        • chacha1

          Yet she trashed her mother and father in her book, you cannot unring that bell

  • GinaXOXO

    Well done, Beach Spin. That fake prince scene with Camille was absurd.

    Ok, so, LisaR will not level with Kim about what Brandi said because she is scared of Kim. Lisa R says she has agreed to stay out of it, right? That is her story. So, riddle me this. Why is LisaR suddenly not scared?? We’ve all seen the twitter craziness. That is not someone who is scared. That is not someone who is staying out of it. Why change?? IMO, because LisaR knew that she twisted the truth to Kyle. Brandi didn’t say Kim needs an intervention. Lisa R suggested an intervention and Brandi first said no–said no again–and then said maybe the intervention could be for all of us.

    On last nights episode Brandi reiterated again that she is worried about Kim and worried that she is getting support and proper therapy.

    What the heck is happening to LisaR?? RHOBH is changing her or, she has been an under the radar sh!t stirrer.

    Do you think LisaR is bringing the drama to make sure she gets recast? Or to be a HW favorite? Or, is she simply not that nice?

    • Yolie

      Why was Camille kissing that fugly prince she just met??? He looked really familiar, and I thought I’d seen him before, so I just Googled his name. I was right – he was on Millionaire Matchmaker. I guess someone must have kissed a frog and turned it into a prince.

      • Birdie

        She acts desperate…for love and cash.

        • Yolie

          She’s an educated, beautiful, wealthy woman, I don’t get why she acts so desperate.

          • GinaXOXO

            I have to admit that watching Camille last night reminded me why viewers didn’t like her. That was too much, IMO. Just . . . creepy . . . and made me feel dirty. I think she was trying too hard to look like a vixen. Fail, IMO.

          • Yolie

            Do you remember her obnoxious behavior, grinding and gyrating on the other ladies husband’s on their group vaca?

          • GinaXOXO

            I do. I haven’t thought about it for so long I almost forgot. Seeing her last night reminded me–not kidding. Do you remember kissing her friends husband on the lips??

      • pixntrix

        Thank you I have been trying to remember where I had seen him too.

        • Yolie

          You’re welcome. I knew he looked familiar then it hit me.

      • Those kisses were painful to watch,!

        • Yolie

          Downright cringeworthy.

          • chacha1

            hahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

        • BeachSpin

          UGH…I was embarrassed!

    • pixntrix

      Great commeny ITA with what you said. Lisa R needs to ever own her stuff or stop…and she complains about Brandi not owning hers. Pot meet kettle. I never understood why Lisa R flipped out so badly in Amsterdam if she and Harry have nothing to hide. If someone insinuated something about my husband I would laugh and offer them another drink. You look less guilty that way and shut it down.

      • GinaXOXO

        I agree. Taking it a step further I noticed that the other HWs seemed to know what Kim was talking about. One of them even said “don’t go there”. So, they all know, IMO.

        Someone in cyber space said LisaR and Brandi could have been great friends. They would have been good TV as friends.

    • BeachSpin

      Thank you Gina! I do give Brandi credit for being honest about being worried about Kim…but their googly eyes they were throwing when talking about being worried about each other was weird.

      • Bad Barbie

        They are worried for each other cause they be on the same shiz-nay-eez.!

      • GinaXOXO

        I also thought it was weird that all the other HWs stood there watching. AND they were listening. When Brandi asked LisaR why there were all standing there listening and said “shoo fly” Kyle heard her and started flipping her hair around complaining.

        I know a lot of this is staged. I can only assume that Kim and Brandi said they would talk about it alone but not with the group. Then the group was hoping to pounce.

        The whole episode was weird.

    • chacha1

      LisaR sure flip flops and no way was she going to stick up for Kyle and tell the truth, again LisaR took the low road after stirring the pot this whole season

      • Brattus Rattus

        I agree to disagree. I just read her blog and it did make sense to me. I have been put in those places before, too, so I can kinda relate. Lisa was told to STFU about all things related to Kim and her sobriety. She was trying to hold firm to that. Brandi was 5’11” tall in a conversation that involved Kim and her health. Did the conversation mean two different things to two different people? Yeah, possibly. Brandi had NO problem letting it slip that Kim was using again during that conversation with Lisa R. So I can see why Lisa took the conversation to mean what she did. After ALL that BS that Lisa went thru with Kim and Brandi, I really do think she was trying to just stay out of it. In the end, she did feel the need to try and explain. Kim has no right speaking to ANYONE the way she does. It’s just a matter of time before someone knocks her out. Same with Brandi. I do enjoy your comments though. I have a dear friend who’s name is chacha so when I see you, I think of them. Have a great day!

        • chacha1

          I totally respect your opinion 🙂 and if I were LisaR I would have screamed in Kim’s face to “GET AWAY FROM ME” yes, I would have made a scene but at that point I would have had enough of Kim Richards bullying me …. and I would have screamed nose to nose as loud as I could, Someone needs to put that nasty trashbag Kim in her place

  • Yolie

    It’s unfortunate that Brandi’s father is going through a bad illness (rolling my eyes). We all know Brandi is exaggerating her dad’s illness to excuse her bad behavior. Too bad she didn’t have the Sick Dad card when she was assaulting the other women throughout the season.

    Kyle said on WWHL that she hadn’t spoken to Kim for a few months. Good for her. Kim is toxic and mean. I know what it’s like to have to cut a toxic sister out of one’s life–once the initial pain passes, it is liberating to not feel the constant burden of being blamed for things you don’t control. Until Kim gets to the step where she stops talking about her sobriety like Gollum talks about his Precious, I think Kyle is better off keeping her distance.

    Finally, Camille can do better than that Dutch prince. He tried to eat her face like a mother bird feeding a baby from her gullet. Not feeling that at all.

    • GinaXOXO

      Brandi’s dad was in the hospital for weeks. That cannot be faked.

      • Yolie

        HI Gina, No doubt he was sick, I just think Brandi lied when she said he was dying. If he was that sick she would not have been going to the spa with Yolanda or at Adrienne’s circus freak show.

        • GinaXOXO

          I wish it were easy to look at old tweets. I can’t remember the details. I remember reading the tweets and thinking OMG if he dies she is going to fall apart. My thoughts then were that it was touch and go. I think he had open heart surgery–but I am not sure. Then he had issues after the surgery and she was asking for prayers for answers.

          I always wish Brandi said things differently. I am only defending that she seemed very scared according to her tweets.

          • misstc

            Please remember that drugs and alcohol amplify thoughts and feelings.

          • Yolie

            No doubt it was a scary time for her and like a poster stated below, I’m sure drugs and alcohol amplified her emotions.

          • chacha1

            Oh Brandi throws her pity parties like she is the only one to have issues, we went thru her “I lost my dog” stage where she blamed all her bad behavior on that incident and so on and so on … she is a trashbag

          • Chloe

            It appeared Brandi assumed Lisa was going to rehash regard the slap conversation, so she immediately cut Lisa off, saying she had bigger things to worry about, and in the process, trying to make herself seem above such petty stuff. Brandi needs a lot of therapy to help her work through her issues. Her main issue is self-esteem. She perceives that everyone thinks they are better than her and she’s always out to prove them wrong, but in the process she proves herself wrong.

          • pixntrix

            You’re right Brandi does needs therapy, like many of the housewives, which I truly hope she gets. There are some deep seated issues there. Perhaps Bravo should make it mandatory before giving out contracts. Just a thought.

          • Sunny

            Well said and true.

          • chacha1

            Brandi goes and emails/texts Lisa about her father yet last season Lisa was not good enough to meet her drugged out father (according to Brandis Book) she took her BFF Yolanda ….. so really why should Lisa give a rats ass about Brandi or her father … I sure wouldn’t even though she is a co-worker …

          • chacha1

            yet she never considered him and his feelings when she wrote horrible things about him in her book …… Brandi only spins it her way to gain sympathy …. that is her MO

        • misstc

          Brandi was on Andy’s WWHL show a couple nights ago and was chirpy. When Andy asked about her Dad, she said his heart surgery went well & he’s doing great!!! Then she said she saw Kyle at Sephora? who ran out of the store like she did from the dinner in Amsterdam. Funny thing is, Kyle was with Andy last night & said it was the other way around and he could verify this with Sephora employees who REALLY ran out like a whipped dog that she is.

          • Yolie

            Hi Misstc. I’ll take Kyle’s word on this one. I want Bravo to summon the Sephora video tape for the reunion lmao.

          • misstc

            GOOD IDEA!! Someone who has close repore? w/ Andy should tweet him & mention this!

          • GinaXOXO

            The hospital stay was in October of 2014. That means the finale was filmed almost 1/2 a year ago. It sure takes them a while to edit, doesn’t it.

      • chacha1

        my husband had 5 by-passes on his heart and was in the hospital for 5 days …. so what did he have that he had to be hospitalized for ‘weeks’ did Brandi say weeks or were you there? not being snarky but just wondering why ‘weeks’ in this day and age and the advances in heart surgery … kind of in and out within days, I know for a fact

        • GinaXOXO

          Ugh!! I wish my memory were working better for details. I only remember my take away thoughts. Something went wrong–I don’t think it was an infection but along those lines–something that —–nevermind. Off to google.

          But, first that is amazing about your husband!! What medicine can do now to change lives is miraculous. I hope he is doing well. My Dad is getting aneurysms repaired in April. I am SO nervous but happy that they found them. He will be in ICU 2-3 days and 5-7 days additional. I hope he does as well as your husband.

          • Wendy Owen

            Just to be a butt-insky here; hubby had to have open heart surgery – triple by-pass and that took about 5 days before they’d let him leave due to big dizziness problem (blood pressure not leveling out) and then a couple of days later, back in because he got a terrible infection — some kind of staph infection which put him back in for another 5 days till they could bring down the fever and rash cleared up. He got it on both legs up to the thighs. Got to watch that kind of thing after hospital stays because idiot Dermatologist told him it was psoriasis. Cardiologist was the one who called it as being a staph infection.
            🙂

          • chacha1

            Oh boy wendy, it just blows your mind doesn’t it ? because you go to the hospital to get well and you come out with some horrible infection … SMH I hear that alot …. our hospital now has robots that go into each room and emergency room to disinfect the area

          • Wendy Owen

            you said it! and this particular hospital looked spotless! ya never know!

          • chacha1

            Thank you Gina, yes it is amazing !….. of course rehab takes a long time but it is out-patient ….. I pray your precious father is the picture of health in no time, hang in there …. 🙂

        • GinaXOXO

          October 2014, Brandi’s dad had a long illness and was in the ICU unit. She started out tweeting begging the Drs to find answers. He ended up getting open heart surgery. I can’t find anything else and I am pretty sure something went wrong but maybe I am remembering that initially Brandi didn’t seem to know what was wrong.

          Also, from what I read Brandi was with her Dad when he was first admitted and came home–I bet it was for RHOBH.

          Dads going in for heart surgery- doctors say he looks amazing for how sick he is!! #praying. She then wrote: Last thing dad said before surgery is GIANTS must win!! So MOTHER F–KING GO GIANTS! #dontf–kit up

    • Brattus Rattus

      Hi, Yolie! Loved your take on the show. One question though, do we really know that Camille can do better? LOL She was as much into him (if not more) than he was into her. I don’t know “royalty” but unless she just wanted get laid, which hey…go for it, don’t you think that maybe Camille just did the best she could do?

      • misstc

        That “Queen Camille of Denmark” comment went to her head.

        • Brattus Rattus

          LMAO right? She should have behaved accordingly. It was like her behavior when she found out about Kelsey cheating on her. First thing she did was say he had a small penis. My reaction to that was so if it was terrible were you in it for the money much?

  • I love how Lisa Rs version of breaking down the swing set as a family means having the groundskeeper do it as she and her family stands by sipping bubbly.

    • Chloe

      Lol, it’s the Beverly Hills way.

    • Brattus Rattus

      Maybe the family is like me. Unless I can fix something with super glue or duct tape, I have to call someone – me and a drill, just call 911 and cut out the middleman. Plus if the guy is on the payroll, might as well ask him to do it.

  • Chloe

    Thanks Beach, this recap is flawless. You really made your recaps better than watching the show. Onto the reunion and we’re done with these ladies! Kudos.

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks so much Chloe…you always have such nice things to say…I appreciate your constant support! I will miss analyzing this mess…I need to go out with a bang with the reunion…I’m sure there will be plenty of material. 🙂

    • Brattus Rattus

      I have to ask…is that your dog? Such a cute avatar and I smile when I see it.

      • Chloe

        So sweet, thanks Brattus. That’s not an actual pic of my dog but I love my Golden Retriever. He’s has the best personality and great to cuddle with. He’s the baby of the family. We love love love! him 🙂

        • Brattus Rattus

          Yay! Golden retrievers are beautiful. I have always loved big dogs. Never little dogs until my parents asked me to find them one. I found them a sweet curly pile of mess. She’s opened my heart to small dogs.
          WTF is wrong with me today? Besides one really mean post, I’m all unicorns and rainbows. I feel like death too. This is either a good or bad sign.
          Meh. At least you have an amazing dog. 😉

          • BeachSpin

            I’ll bring things down to tell you that I HATE little dogs…LOL. Hate, hate, hate!! I’m sorry you’re feeling bad!

          • Brattus Rattus

            hahahahh now shhhhh but I only like the one in the picture. I just don’t want to hurt the other dogs feelings (then again I haven’t met them all). LOL and thank you. I haven’t been to work all wee but I have more Norco in me than a pharmacy.
            Oh man, is this why I’m being nicer than usual? I’m high? crap.

          • BeachSpin

            That dog is like the site mascot…hear that Chloe? CUTE and smart (with the specs) all in one! BIG dogs are the best!

  • Brattus Rattus

    Great recap Breach! Everyone has said what I wanted to say so I just have a little bit I want to add:
    Camille’s dress: loved it. Her….Meh
    WTF was going on with all that makeup going on Kim? How bad does your skin have to be to need that much cake applied to it to still look that wrecked once you’re done? Stop with the black eyeliner. Scary.

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Brattus! Camille acted cringe worthy…the dress was the best part about her appearances for sure.

  • Fun recap! Looking forward to the reunion. You were so dead on about Yolanda butting in everywhere, lol!

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks! IKR..she was a big know it all, as usual.

  • CNN

    Great recap, Beach. Thanks for covering this season with such care. Brandi got away with it, again. Like last season, she started off a drunken mess insulting everyone, then found a way to pry apart a friendship (this time two sisters), then by the finale when people were starting to figure out her subterfuge, she finds an issue to create sympathy for herself. Last year, it was that she was hurt over her ex’s ex mistress. This year her father is “dying”– in quotes because on Monday night she said on WWHL that he was just fine.

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks so much CNN! I enjoyred it and appreciate your kind words. 🙂

  • Dani-K

    Sooo good Beach! It’s not often I feel bad for Brandi, but she should not have been there for the finale. She should have been with her dad. And if she contractually obligated to go the party for the finale, she shouldn’t have had any alcohol. But then she wouldn’t be Brandi! Can’t wait to read your reunion recap!

    • Brattus Rattus

      Totally agree. So what, a few hours to get ready for the party? Then go to the party and have people say “poor you”? So what she told Adrianne she would be there? I’m sure that Adrianne would not only understand her absence but be grateful for (less) drama free night.

      • Jennymckitty

        Bravo might see what an enjoyable show it would be without her. Unfortunately, Kim was there to keep the annoying drama going.

        • Brattus Rattus

          I just don’t get it. Although, Gina is giving me her take on Brandi thru her eyes. It’s an interesting way of looking at it, but it’s still Gina’s take. I’m quite enjoying it actually. read down a few clicks. Makes sense – if it was Brandi.

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Dani! I am up for the challenge! 😀

    • chacha1

      Brandi had every chance to be with her father who she trashed in a book but chose to go to the spa with Yolanda and one of Adriennes lame parties

  • MorningYawn

    Was if me or were those the worst pics of each lady next to their “where r they now “. All I could think was “what had the ALL done to production to use such god awful photos of them.”

    • Brattus Rattus

      I looked and can’t find the link. pleaseeeeee provide!

      • MorningYawn

        Oh it was at the end of the show… I will try to find! Huge vein on the side of LVP head, Eileen had her hands crossed in front of her face n it was blurry, Brandi was getting into her car service absolutely glaring at the cameraman… I’ll see what I can find!

        • Brattus Rattus

          I hate when my DVR cuts off. Don’t worry yourself. I’ll catch a rerun. Thank you though! I was watching DanceMUMS and it cut off before the winner was announced. I was not impressed. Even a little bit. Them women – Crazy. Abby needs to be thankful she has the moms she has cause, honey, them bitches are insane.

          • MorningYawn

            I hate when it cuts off too ! Frustrating for sure! Never watched Abby… I’m kind of embarrassed for all those stage moms. My daughter does musical theater and I run from those women! Lol!

          • Brattus Rattus

            I feel for the kids.I have ZERO sympathy/empathy/embarrassment for those moms though. They allow people like Abby to screw with the kids. Your job is to teach dance. Not manipulate my kid. Those moms/mums though no excuse. I guess it’s the same thing with coaching sports. Me not having any kids all I can do is sit back in horror and think is I had a kid and aw someone treating my children like this, I’d be in prison for sure. Knowing that some of the parents are worse than the coaches/instructors makes me really sad. Also makes me want to buy more shoes. Those are my kids and they don’t talk back! lol

      • MorningYawn

        I can’t find it either- I can only say ff full episode to end

  • So Brandi, you’re mad because Lisa hasn’t reached out to you about your father, you’re super, super worried about his health, but here you are … with a drink at your hand … at a party? Hypocrisy on fleek!

  • RonnieIsBack

    OT : Prayer warriors/friends my mother is back in the hospital. I will be out of pocket for a bit bc me and my siblings are living at the hopstial. I will try to keep you posted.
    Love to all of you.
    I’ll talk with you soon

    • Ronnie, sorry to hear this. I’m praying for your family. Hang in there, sis. ♥︎

      Piggybacking on your comment, prayers are answered. My Dad got good news today. He still needs surgery but he got a 2nd opinion and we feel so much better about it. Hang in there!!
