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.
Harry Hamlin is Lisa Rinna‘s constant protector – her beacon against the storm of criticism and the stalwart counselor she seeks to find balance (or wait – maybe that’s Xanax smoothies). And Harry always seems to be defending his wife over her behavior on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills.
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.
Sigh – Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills is always one step forward; two steps back. Last night, the ladies journeyed halfway across the globe, from Beverly Hills to Hong Kong, only to find themselves mired in the same old “who said it” drama. Well, it’s good to change it up a bit and fight in new settings, and the gorgeous scenery did not disappoint.
It’s a fourteen-hour flight, which means one could find themselves trapped on an airplane using Kyle Richards‘ hair kaftan as a blanket (or parachute!), or being bored to death by Eileen Davidson discussing trans-particle fusion as applied to soap villainesses and their cognitive dissonance coping skills.
Rinna didn’t reveal too much, but she did take the opportunity to take jabs at Dorit Kemsley. And of course, she discussed her selective memory loss and her drama with Kim Richards and Kyle Richards. After all, that’s pretty much been the only story line this season other than pantygate.
Dorit breaks down last week’s episode, admitting that seeing Erika in her Georgia hometown gave her some fresh insight into her cast mate. However, she continues to struggle with exactly who the “real” Erika is.
Until we see actual footage of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills season 7 reunion, speculation will have to do. And Kyle Richards is giving the press plenty of teasers to fuel this speculation. Post-reunion filming, Kyle divulges that it was a “bizarre” experience that differentiated itself from reunions past in its sheer awkwardness alone. Um – as if past reunions weren’t awkward enough?
Calling the reunion “intense,” Kyle claims “There was screaming, there was crying, there was a walk-off.” Although she’s not naming who exactly walked off, I’m sure we could start a pretty successful betting pool on the over/under odds that Kim Richards had something to do with it!
