Andy says, “Flashbacks are not Lisa Rinna’s friend this season, unfortunately,” referring to the footage of Rinna talking to Eden Sassoon about Kim Richards’ sobriety. One would assume that this footage – which has driven many an episode and taken up far too much of my own personal brain space this season! – was highlighted front and center at the reunion.
In this week’s Bravo blog, Eileen Davidson is clearly drained from this trip to Hong Kong. The journey started off with some hope for a renewed friendship with Lisa Vanderpump but turned into just another boating fiasco for the cast.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star gives her two cents on Hong Kong. Eileen starts off, “Hong Kong? How about Wrong Kong? I should have taken my lack of sleep on the plane as an omen of how this trip was going to be: EXHAUSTING.”
Sigh – Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills is always one step forward; two steps back. Last night, the ladies journeyed halfway across the globe, from Beverly Hills to Hong Kong, only to find themselves mired in the same old “who said it” drama. Well, it’s good to change it up a bit and fight in new settings, and the gorgeous scenery did not disappoint.
It’s a fourteen-hour flight, which means one could find themselves trapped on an airplane using Kyle Richards‘ hair kaftan as a blanket (or parachute!), or being bored to death by Eileen Davidson discussing trans-particle fusion as applied to soap villainesses and their cognitive dissonance coping skills.
Rinna didn’t reveal too much, but she did take the opportunity to take jabs at Dorit Kemsley. And of course, she discussed her selective memory loss and her drama with Kim Richards and Kyle Richards. After all, that’s pretty much been the only story line this season other than pantygate.
Dorit breaks down last week’s episode, admitting that seeing Erika in her Georgia hometown gave her some fresh insight into her cast mate. However, she continues to struggle with exactly who the “real” Erika is.
Until we see actual footage of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills season 7 reunion, speculation will have to do. And Kyle Richards is giving the press plenty of teasers to fuel this speculation. Post-reunion filming, Kyle divulges that it was a “bizarre” experience that differentiated itself from reunions past in its sheer awkwardness alone. Um – as if past reunions weren’t awkward enough?
Calling the reunion “intense,” Kyle claims “There was screaming, there was crying, there was a walk-off.” Although she’s not naming who exactly walked off, I’m sure we could start a pretty successful betting pool on the over/under odds that Kim Richards had something to do with it!
Kyle Richards vows to confront Rinna at the RHOBH reunion, claiming that this season changed her perspective on things – especially when it comes to the relationship with her supposed long time “friend” Rinna. “Personally, I think all that drama really changed everything for me and put me in an awful position. Kim is my sister, but Lisa Rinna is also supposed to be my friend. I mean how many times can she say she’s ‘sorry’ before it doesn’t mean anything?” reflects Kyle.
