Can we all just agree that game nights and the ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are just a terrible, terrible mix? It’s like tere and prostitution whores or Vicki Gunvalson and boyfriends or Kenya Moore and reality. They just don’t fit well together. Make it stop, Bravo. The charades I can handle…the drama, not so much!
On this week’s RHOBH, the dreaded recurring game night occurred at Kyle Richards’ abode, complete with the newbies and a very healthy looking Kim Richards but sans slut pigs (thankfully). Eileen Davidson used the opportunity to nitpick the accent memory and word choice and panty pranks of Dorit Kemsley, while Lisa Rinna revisited her long-standing feud with Kim. Don’t get me wrong, I am not quite on board with Dorit, but she clearly has no clue how to handle these women. I adored Eileen on Days of Our Lives (especially as Kristen DiMera’s crazy twin Susan), but her pettiness is exhausting. Ditto for Rinna’s hustling and QVC line anger at Kim. At least the even keeled Lisa Vanderpump is here to give us her words of wisdom!
In her blog, Eden thanks Kyle Richards for hosting the night and jokes about Dorit Kemsley’s very sudden and very bizarre attraction to her: “I kind of wish we were all naked (#FreeLove), but I guess it didn’t matter. Dorit was already undressing me with her eyes. And remember, I told you guys last week that the only games I like to play are with men!”
Things continue at Camille Grammer‘s Luncheon From Hell, which really wasn’t all that hellish after all. It kind of fizzled and popped, then went flat like day-old Perrier. What Dorit wanted to finish telling Eileen is that she feels constantly on the defense with these women. I feel like it’s true that Dorit is under laser-focus, but I also feel like Dorit is trying too hard, then imagines people are constantly scrutinizing her. Her affiliation with the sleaziness that is PK doesn’t help.
On last night’s Vanderpump Rules, we learned that Stassi Schroeder‘s problems with men run deep. Like down in the beautiful, briny sea deep. She’s also being strangled in turtleneck-form by her own ill-advised hubris.
Now, I must do a disclaimer with this recap: Do not expect my usual greatness of prose mixed with pearls of wisdom, as I have the worst cold I have ever had in my human existence. And I feel like garbage. Like what Tequila Katie (minus Tom 2) may smear on Scheana Marie‘s overly-contoured face.
Can we talk about Scheana? Ho-ly does that girl need a ‘stink face’ removal procedure. Didn’t anyone warn her that her face will freeze that way if she makes a poop face immediately after getting Botox? I mean, I get it – she has a hard-earned summer body to protect, but lighten up and eat a lil’ clam. I hear Kristen Doute loves them.
Lisa also defends her friend Dorit and bemoans the fact that she’s in the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills “hot seat” so far this season.
Lisa points out that “wine obviously flowed copiously” at PK and Dorit‘s dinner party. “So one might be forgiven if an accurate memory of what had transpired in conversation might be a little hazy so to speak. When we flash back, it compounds the fact that Dorit was inaccurate of her recollection. The subject of Eileen‘s name and mother, of course, was raised, however there were wires that were crossed.”
The extremely touchy and personal topic of deceased parents came up repeatedly on this week’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, and it was not at ALL appreciated by Eileen Davidson and Lisa Rinna, both of whom sadly lost a parent this past year. In her blog, Eileen takes issue with PK and Dorit Kemsley judging her about when, where, and how she revealed the news of her late mother’s passing.
Eileen clarifies, “I lost my mother in March. This was months after all the issues with Lisa [Vanderpump] happened. The next day, I worked Y&R. I chose not to tell anyone there because that was the only way I could do my job. It was pure survival. I had to make the same decision for the reunion. We all had a lot of issues that needed to be talked through. I knew it would rob everyone of their ability to be honest with me if they were all walking on eggshells.”
After Lisa Rinna left PK and Dorit Kemsley’s dinner party, she felt like she had been served up for dinner to the assorted very strange guests assembled ’round the table. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills self-proclaimed “hustler” couldn’t quite hustle her way out of an awkward conversation with the Kemsleys about their good friend, Lisa Vanderpump. And it was all made more strained by PK’s insistence that Lisa (and Eileen Davidson) were influenced by their parents’ deaths last year in their actions toward Lisa V. Not so, say both women.
Lisa comments in her blog this week on the impropriety and downright oddball nature of the dinner party conversation. “I thought it was kind of Dorit to invite me to her dinner party once she knew I was alone, and I graciously accepted, wanting to get to know both Dorit and PK better. However, if I didn’t know better, I could have sworn that instead of being invited to a dinner party, I was actually at a BBQ, and I was the one being grilled!”
What is up with Dorit Kemsley? I mean, she gives good TV since we’re all going to be talking about her, but, err, uhh… she is not a good look for Lisa Vanderpump, and I don’t think this is what Lisa was going for when she got Dorit cast. So, Peek-K looked up Erika Girardi‘s skirt, and after grilling my husband relentlessly about the possibility of PK’s view, I’ve decided I agree with Erika that it’s probably not possible that PK got full-vajaynejayne throughout dinner as he claimed. Erika, though, is pissed that Dorit told everyone about it, then handled it by handing her some “full coverage” underwear. Of all the insults – to assume ERIKA JAYNE wears full coverage?! As if! When completely sheer = granny panties, you know you’ve gone to the Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory for aging trophy wives with celebrity ambitions.
