Another day, another teaser about the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion. This time, Eileen Davidson is spilling some tea about what we can expect when the ladies get together to rehash a doozie of a season. Though she wasn’t in the middle of most of the drama, Eileen admits the reunion still took a toll on her.
“I could actually not put two words together this morning,” said Eileen the day after taping the reunion. “It’s crazy. I actually sound halfway intelligent. I couldn’t have been this clear yesterday.”
Lisa begins with gratitude for her cast mates supporting her work against Yulin. “Hong Kong was an incredible opportunity to focus on our fight against Yulin, and I am grateful for all who supported us in our tireless endeavors, against the barbarianism which transpires each summer solstice.”
Eden Sassoon didn’t have much to add to the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills in Hong Kong, but she did rock an awesomely bad wig and apparently meet up with her Instagram dude – so the trip was not entirely in vain! This week, Eden chose – or was forced – to be a bit player on the stage, a role she says suited the situation well, considering how the trip devolved into a string of explosive arguments and salacious accusations.
Eileen reflects, “I knew from the beginning that the thing between Dorit and Erika would eventually come to a head. What I didn’t expect was to have Lisa [Rinna] and me dragged into it as well. Dorit’s reaction was surprising. Erika had some strong words – probably because she had been keeping the deep embarrassment and hurt she had for ‘pantygate’ in for so long. Instead of sincerely apologizing, Dorit landed some pretty harsh critiques back. Calling Lisa R. ‘low-class’ and to ‘question if Erika has feelings’ was uncalled for.”
Erika stopped by Watch What Happens Live to address the intense episode with Andy Cohen and fellow guest, Real Housewives fanatic Megan McCain. I have to admit that I am an Erika Jayne fan, so it was tough for me to watch. It was the first time in Erika’s two years on the show when I found it difficult to back her up. I was nervous about the (deserved) backlash that she was bound to get for flipping out at Eileen for no reason.
Well last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hillswas really something! Erika Jayne went from having no feelings she lets out, to melting into a puddle of icky goo. Don’t even get me started on Lisa Rinna. She needs to play Freeze Tag with her own lips. But we learned a very important thing: if you do not abide by the Buddha’s preach for peace and goodwill, you’re going to get served a severed friendship, surrounded by unfounded accusations.
When I say last night was not a good look for Erika, I mean that literally. She has a pretty cry face, but good lord, her sobbing and swearing at Eileen Davidson with 10 feet of pancake makeup and and Tammy Faye Baker eyes was frightening, Wicked Witch Of The West style. Honey those glams you pay need to tone down the fabulous.
Despite reunion hype of crying, screaming, and a walk-off (which Erika also confirms happened), the XXXpen$ive singer says, “I walked out the reunion feeling great. I’ve spoken with all the girls afterwards. I don’t harbor any ill will, but you’d have to ask others how they feel, but for me, I feel fine.”
Andy says, “Flashbacks are not Lisa Rinna’s friend this season, unfortunately,” referring to the footage of Rinna talking to Eden Sassoon about Kim Richards’ sobriety. One would assume that this footage – which has driven many an episode and taken up far too much of my own personal brain space this season! – was highlighted front and center at the reunion.
