Tonight is the final episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion! We’re sad to see it go, but it’s bidding us farewell with another bang.
Tonight Lisa Vanderpump reveals that her son Max has found his biological mother! When asked by Andy if he’s planning to meet her and how Lisa feels about this new development, she admits that she wants him to see her. LVP also shares that Max wants to tell his birth mother “thank you” for the life he was able to have because of her decision to give him up.
That’s why I was so happy when she stopped by the Bravo club house to talk Southern Charm with Andy Cohen and throw shade at just about everyone from the cast. I don’t agree with everything she said, but I love her for sharing her truth while she was wearing a caftan with photos of her dog on it. There’s no way that I couldn’t appreciate a person rocking that outfit.
That’s why Andy Cohen had no choice but to poll the Watch What Happens Live viewers last night to ask “Is Ashley stirring the pot or is she being a concerned friend?” It didn’t really seem like she was “concerned” when she pushed Charrisse to introduce her to Eddie Jordan at their daughter’s sweet sixteen even though they weren’t on speaking terms. It also didn’t come across as “concern” when Ashley brought up Eddie’s presence at the party during a group hang at the hookah bar, but Ashley has a different view on her behavior.
I was pretty excited to hear the news that Kim Zolciak will make an official return to Real Housewives of Atlanta, so I was looking forward to her Watch What Happens Live appearance- especially after her season finale confrontation with Kenya Moore. I wanted to see Kim reading Kenya and dodging questions from Andy Cohen about whether or not she got a nose job, but unfortunately Kim will not be on the episode tonight.
I don’t blame her though, Kim has a very legitimate reason for skipping this public appearance. Her son Kash was bitten by a dog and he had to go to the hospital.
It could have been a difficult year for Cynthia Bailey on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but she definitely had the easiest season out of everyone in the cast. She had the most graceful divorce in Real Housewives history. She turned fifty and looks better than ever (which I didn’t think was possible). Plus, she’s on pretty good terms with the rest of the cast.
Of course, she wasn’t the most interesting person to watch on the show, but she did provide some balance to the crazy antics. Plus, it is entertaining to see her make this “friends” thing work with Peter Thomas. It’s unusual, but they get along better now than they were before they split. So I don’t blame Andy Cohen for asking about their interaction multiple times during the reunion.
Before this Real Housewives of Atlanta season started, I felt like the show had the right cast. I couldn’t see any of these ladies getting the boot, especially Phaedra Parks. She’s a shade-throwing assassin, she has the cutest kids, she got burned by her husband, she wears racy outfits, she’s charitable. Basically she has all of the elements that make for a compelling Housewife, but am I the only one who feels like this four part reunion is her swan song?
She told some major lies this year and didn’t have to own any of her actions the entire season since Porsha Williams covered for her the entire time. Phaedra owes her a muffin basket or something to convey her gratitude. Nevertheless, now that all of the episodes have aired, Andy Cohen and her costars will be pushing Phaedra to present some receipts. Unfortunately, it does not seem like she actually has any and she might be totally screwed.
It feels like Andy Cohen has a night off as the host whenever Sonja Morgan appears on Watch What Happens Live. He doesn’t have to push her to say much, yet Sonja delivers with amazing information that he wasn’t even asking for. She always comes through.
And last night’s episode was even crazier because Real Housewives enthusiast Michael Rapaport was also in the clubhouse. Sonja revealed a tryst with an A-list actor, accused Dorinda Medley of “always being drunk,”and clarified those racy photos of her on the floor with that stripper. If you missed the episode, you need to look for it online. It was just that good, but if you’re already reading this, then I got you covered with the show’s essential moments.
Well that’s it – another season of Vanderpump Rules done and done! But the third part of the reunion ended with quite a bang when Scheana Marie‘s estranged husband Mike Shay appeared to say everything and nothing at all.
Good lord – the girls on this show are ridiculous! Like Katie Maloney, nothing is ever Scheana’s fault as she just demands, cries, and throws tantrums then blames everyone else. Tom 2 – consider Shay your warning; Robert Valleta – consider Tom 2 your warning.
Before we witness Scheana Marie collapse into a cloud of pressed powder, we have much ground to cover. While Andywasted time last week trying to make Stassi Schroeder‘s brother ‘happen,’ the reunion could have focused on all the drama between James Kennedy and Kristen Doute, or that time Tom 2 almost canceled his wedding while pooping in a wedding gown, as Tom 1 was crying in a Sia costume. Aaaaahhh… good times in New Orleans!
