Last night on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, stars rose, hearts sunk, and Kim Richards‘ daughter got married in a gorgeous wedding, which was sweet and lovely and made me wanna be nice to Kim. I imagine that will be short-lived.
In what is surely the very definition of hell, Yolanda Foster is trapped on a rent-a-yacht in the middle of the ocean with Kyle Richards after receiving the news that her daughter Bella (soon to be known as The Disowned One) got a DUI. Yolanda sniffles through telling us that poor Bella had only ONE glass of wine and got pulled over. The injustice! Yolanda isn’t sure how to handle her children growing up and making decisions without her input. It hits her on an additional level because her father died in a car accident and she can’t believe Bella would be so careless.
Lisa Vanderpump is trying to get her friendships back on track this year, but that will alas take some time. We all now Lisa isn’t the forgive and forget kind! Despite the issues she’s had with Yolanda Foster, Lisa commends her for her handling Bella’s DUI and urges us all to remember that kids make mistakes – sometimes terrible ones.
“Seeing Yolanda receive the news of Bella’s DUI was heart rendering really,” the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star says. “We as parents always feel the responsibility of our children’s actions, but at some point they have to be held accountable, and if nobody was hurt, I am a believer that sometimes a scare can be the ultimate lesson that is necessary to steer them in the right direction.”
Yolanda took to her blog to share her thoughts – then and now – about Bella. “Sharing this personal parenting story with you is a very sensitive subject,” she said, “but I felt it was important for you to hear it from me.”
“When my phone rang and I heard David’s voice, I knew in my gut something was really wrong,” Yolanda recalled. “My adrenaline started rushing through my body, and the greatest panic attack of my life set in, like a train ran over my heart. ‘DUI….’, ‘drinking and driving,…’, OMG, what if she had hurt someone?! What if she had crashed and gotten killed?! My ‘what if’ button went from zero to ten in a split second, because my greatest fear is to lose any of my children in a car accident the way I lost my father when I was only seven years old.”
Oh my… Brandi Glanville UNFILTERED anyone? In a recent podcast Brandi Glanville ripped Kyle Richards calling her out on being a shallow, selfish, two-faced, money and fame obsessed, bitch.
Brandi and Kyle were briefly – briefly – friends but all that changed while filming for Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. Neither lady will reveal what exactly the unforgivable offense was, but they both swear to never be friends again! First Brandi slammed Kyle on the WWHL Aftershow.
“Kyle can f–king suck it! I’m going to tell you why: she’s stabbed everyone in the back,” Brandi told Andy Cohen. “For her to say she can’t forgive me, everyone else has forgiven her – she needs to check herself!”
Kyle Richards is preparing for another family vacation – this time on a 100-foot yacht in Mallorca, Spain. One of Kyle’s daughters is already in the South of France for a week with a friend and will be meeting the family in Spain. “Such is the life!” trills Kyle with faux humility. Kyle’s storyline this season seems to be an inferiority complex about proving she’s rich. Every episode is her pretending to be humble, while covertly bragging about flying private and living luxe but she’s actually squee-ing inside that finally she’s arrived. I’m just waiting to see her in a “Very Rich Bitch” t-shirt ala NeNe Leakes.
Before Kyle gets packing she visits to Kim Richards, who is preparing for her daughter Brooke’s wedding and wants to preview her Mother Of The Bride dresses. Everything at Kim’s house is scattered, decorated with rejects from early 90’s TV sets, and filled with deathly ill children – it’s all an evil ploy to make Kyle too sick for Mallorca so Kim can go instead, bond with Yolanda Foster, and cosy up to a wealthy Spanish gentleman! “Lysol – take me away!” Kyle puts her hair around her face like a mask to protect her from the germs. Kim’s dress is lovely – good for her.
As for her much speculated about friendship with Brandi,she admits it’s more of an on-camera thing than off. You mean, like Hollywood friends? “We’re friends. We don’t see each other when we aren’t filming as much because we’re all busy,” Yolanda says. “It’s funny because the months that we are filming we see each other every day and then we kind of go on a hiatus. [laughs] Hiatus from our friendships, our relationships and you kind of go back to your own life.”
Brandi says it was Lisa who made the decision not to continue their friendship. “I thought there was a chance but I guess not… You’ll see it all unfold,” Brandi says blaming Lisa for ending the friendship. “She’s now saying there’s no chance we can be friends.”
