Kim said she is “doing great” since Monty Brinson‘s passing. “I was not really sure how I would be,” admitted Kim. “I was a little nervous myself. But, my family and I, we’re all sticking very close together. He’s our angel over us. It’s amazing. I’m doing great.” Kim went on to explain why she’s keeping the details about her recovery private this go-round.
Andy jumps right in and asks Stassi, Katie, Kristen, and Scheana to explain some of their worst moments on Vanderpump Rules. (This is only a half hour show, right?) First up, Kristen sleeping with James Kennedy, on the top of his car, just a couple minutes after he made her cry, “It wasn’t the way that he said that it happened. He is a liar. But it was a huge mistake. HUGE.”
Andy asks Kim if she is competing on the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars. Neither confirming nor denying, she says, “I’m so excited. There’s so many fantastic opportunities that are coming up this year for me. I’m celebrating my fortieth year in the industry. We got a lot of great things going on, lots of fun stuff happening.” That sounds like “yes but I’m not allowed to say so” to me.
After that episode aired, Yolanda blogged, “A lack of education is the root of so many issues today. You will never hear someone who’s walked in my shoes speak the way Taylor spoke on tonight’s episode. I truly hope she never has to experience the journey she questions me for sharing.”
Taylor responds, “Absolutely I hope that nobody else has to experience what she’s experiencing. I feel horrible for her. But at the same time I was concerned Yolanda had a misdiagnosis because I have family members who have had neurological diseases. They were misdiagnosed for a very long time and ended up having multiple sclerosis so I was just concerned. It really was out of concern and I wish the best for her.”
Andy opened the show by sharing that he thinks James and Lala were just overtired and super excited to be on the show and then added in alcohol and anxiety and it was a disaster for the censors (and an annoyance for us viewers). So, Andy’s giving Lala another shot and is also allowing a cardboard version of James be the bartender for the night (photo below).
Debra asks Kathryn why she told Lisa Vanderpump what Erika Girardi said. “I’m an honest person,” says Kathryn. “I get thrown under the bus if I don’t say something cause we all know the truth comes to the surface. I met them both at the same time. I’m not shady. I’ll say it to your face.”
Andy has a little fun at James Kennedy‘s expense (and I’m not mad at him for it). About James calling himself the white Kanye West and saying the Pump CD is the single greatest thing he has ever done in his life, Brittany says, “That’s embarrassing.” Jax just says, “I don’t even have to say anything. He just kind of buries himself. It’s almost too easy.”
