Erika Jayne came in to this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as a friend ofYolanda Foster and she’s making sure she sticks by her through thick and thin. Erika reflects on this week’s episode, thankful to spend time with her ailing friend and feels everyone should be nicer to her.
Erika is happy that Yolanda felt up to walking down to the beach, “I want to start off by saying how happy it made me to get out to the beach with Yolanda. I almost forgot how pretty Malibu can be. It was such a gorgeous day, it almost made me miss my old Malibu home. She had not been on the beach in months, so this was really special. With everything she’s dealing with right now, she deserves some time to enjoy herself.”
Lisa snarked, “So, here we are in the kitchen of my disco, aka Villa Rosa. Kyle comes to pick me up, we are jovial and tease each other, which is the foundation of our friendship, but I was eager to resolve the issue regarding the invitation of FayeResnick to the barbecue at her house the week previously.”
The newest addition to RHOBH, Kathryn prides herself on being honest and says she’ll always “‘have the balls’ to speak the truth.” And if she’s not quite done holding a grudge against Faye, well…she’s in good company: Lisa Vanderpump is still not over Fayecoming for her at her anniversary party three years ago (nor should she be, in my opinion!).
Even when Yolanda is congratulating her co-stars, she makes it all about her, “My first call out is Kyle‘s line about 20 years married in Beverly Hills being like 100! That line made me smile, because it’s true. I have not gotten there, but I can say as a hopeless romantic, it was always my intention. One thing I will carry for the next hundred years are the good memories that each experience gives us and the hard lessons that later become gifts! Congratulations to Kyle [Richards], Mauricio,Lisa [Vanderpump], and Ken!”
Before rehashing her conversation with Yolanda, Lisa thanks her fans for their support in the wake of losing her father just weeks ago. “I’d like to start off by giving my most heartfelt thanks to everyone that sent me a message of love and condolence. Your kind words truly helped my family and me during this difficult time of my dad transitioning from our Dad and Nampa to guardian angel. I was and still continue to be humbled by all of the love you have shown us during this time. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
Other than fishnets on ladies of a certain age, the drama centered aroundYolanda Foster‘s Lyme Disease and Faye Resnick‘s polarizing existence. Two subjects I do not care about one bit!
Kyle and Lisa Vanderpump are throwing a burlesque party, to celebrate their joint anniversaries. Kyle and Lisa are cute together. Even when they’re bickering. Lisa withholds sugar from Kyle’s tea as punishment for Kyle springing Faye on her. Kyle teases back that Lisa is holding a grudge. Later Lisa attempts to snoop through Kyle’s phone to see if she and Faye have been talking about her, but it’s all in fun. Quite simply, Lisa doesn’t want the “orangutan” that is Faye – and Faye is very orange in hue no thanks to the most curious spray tan color ever seen. Does she ask the airbrusher to tint her “highlighter orange”? Or possibly “Orange Julius”? Whatever’s happening – that ain’t sunkisst!
The venue for the party is a speakeasy style hotel, and it’s fabulous. Even the looming presence Faye can’t tint Lisa’s excitement.
Heather shares that she binged watched the past four episodes of RHOBH the night before and she’s obsessed with this new season. Kyle agrees that it’s really good this season. Kyle says that last year was such a “crazy season, with Amsterdam and all that stuff and it was really draining. I mean, the stress was out of control. And you think ‘where do you go from there?’ And this season there are people coming up and they’re just loving it. I think it has a lot more depth this season.” She adds that people love to see the women’s lives and real relationships. And she’s right! We don’t need the forced pot-stirring.
Andy showed a preview clip for next week’s RHOBH, on which Yolanda Foster is grilling her co-stars about the Munchausen accusation, and asked Lisa if she regrets bringing it up. “I don’t regret anything actually,” she said. “I never regret anything. I learn from things that I do, always, and I grow and I learn. It’s been a great experience in a lot of ways, but I don’t regret.”
