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.”
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.
