Next month Kim Richards will be back on reality TV with a new show The Mother/Daughter Experiment. Kim stars alongside her daughter, Kimberly Jackson, and a slew of other tumultuous mother/daughter pairs, to deal with their relationship issues. Don’t even bother asking if we’re recapping this because duh – of course we are! #GluttonsForPunishment #MasochistBloggers
In a new preview, Kim and Kimberly attend a therapy session where they watch and respond to taped one-on-one segments about their relationship.
“Before I start with this week I would like to address the conversation back at my ‘BBQ’ with Lisa Vanderpump at the table,” says Kyle. “Unless a parent brings up their children themselves, children are ALWAYS off limits. Yolanda had told Erika and me ON camera that Bella and Anwar have Lyme disease. Obviously it is not a secret if you tell people on camera.”
Eileen begins her blog reviewing the lunch hosted byKathryn Edwards, which took a wrong turn after the ghost of Kim Richards came to haunt the table. “I don’t think anyone expected lunch over at Kathryn’s house to be so emotional. Although, it seems that whenever Kim’s name is brought up, lots of buttons get pushed. When Kathryn broke down while divulging the details of her father’s suicide, I was heartbroken. She has been affected by a loved one’s addiction in the worst way imaginable…It was brave of her to be that vulnerable, and I’m honored she felt comfortable enough to bare her soul and cry.”
Hmmm… is it me or does Lisa Vanderpump seem to be backpedaling a bit? After openly calling out Yolanda Foster for discrepancies, Lisa’s blog seems to treat the Lyme-afflicted Yolanda with kid gloves. Let’s hope that treatment is also holistic, and organic, and from Whole Foods!
“Bitter words were voiced against Kim from Rinna calling her a rabid dog, which is hard to compute. It’s a year later, Kim has made great headway…” insists Lisa. “Kyle’s loyalty to her sister will supersede any wish to be involved in negativity. That is why she left the table and, as a friend, I dutifully followed.” Maybe Lipsa was having difficulty separating Kim’s behaviors from Kingsley’s?
Lisa starts off talking about the revelation that it was Erika who tattled to Yolanda about the kids being brought up. “Just so we’re clear here, I don’t give a sh– that Erika told Yolanda anything, and I wasn’t “calling her out” about doing so. I simply wanted my own name cleared from this part of the scenario. I already have enough on my plate to own, thank you very much.”
Before we get into the lemon-lyme mess of moushchen-houschen-doth-protestest-too-much, the ladies are still in San Diego recovering from the Erika Jayne treatment. As if the Erika Jayne gyration experience wasn’t enough, she gave them whiplash when she bold-faced lied the night before. Nevertheless the ladies are climbing aboard Erika’s golden tour bus for a trip to Kathryn Edwards‘ house. At Kathryn’s they may not have c-nty necklaces, or a plethora of naked male dancers, but they do have a fireplace of stones imported from Jerusalem!
Over brunch Eileen Davidson demands an answer to who told Yolanda that Bella and Anwar’s Lyme was discussed (and lied about the context). Finally Erika confesses. No one asks why she lied the night before, or to Yolanda. She claims she merely mentioned the discussion to Yo. The side-eye of Lisa Vanderpump does not believe her.
Yolanda and Andy talk about her daughters being everywhere – on magazine covers, walking in the fashion shows, etc. Andy mentions that Lisa Rinna was at the Tommy Hilfiger NYFW show at the same time Yolanda was but Yolanda says she didn’t know it until Anwar asked, “Isn’t that the woman who said you had Munchausen’s disease?” Andy praises her for getting the pronunciation of Munchausen right. She says she had a lot of practice from hearing it on the show so much. He plays a montage of all the times Yolanda attempted to pronounce the word on RHOBH.
After all the drama and arguing, the ladies are treated to brunch at Kathryn Edwards‘ San Diego home, which is still under renovation, but hospitable nonetheless. Unfortunately brunch becomes a cesspool of emotions, as brunch often does on a Real Housewives show, when Kim Richards issues are brought up and Kyle Richards reacts. However, the moment prompts Kathryn to reveal a painful secret from her own past.
