Eileen starts off sharing her true compassion for Yolanda Foster. “I’m deeply sorry for the pain that Yolanda endured during the first part of the reunion. Clearly she did not understand that her illness had become its own storyline to such an extent. I was disgusted and saddened and felt nothing but empathy for her as I watched her try to figure out what to believe. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: That chick is one strong woman. I have nothing but mad respect for her.”
I never thought I’d say this but the best thing about last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion was Erika Jayne-Girardi patting the puss. Aside from that it was all journeys all the time from the Yolanda Foster Files, which has more confusing story lines than The X Files (which actually isn’t too much of a stretch in the weirdness department!).
Lisa Vanderpump is wearing battle armor designed by Tom Ford. Initially it sounds like he made it for her, specifically, but then Andy notices Erika was wearing “the shirt version” in her interview talking head. The color looks better on LVP. Not wanting us to forget that she’s chronically ill – for even a moment!!! – Yolanda’s dress resembles bandages and medical gauze. I’m surprised she wasn’t wheeled out on a stretcher with Daisy insisting Glam Squads cause co-infections. Maybe her seat on the couch reclines?
I figured that the ladies would have been worn out from arguing about the same exact thing over and over again, but I was wrong. Apparently they could not even sit next to each other on the plane ride home without coming to blows, so Kyle decided to to take things into her own hands to try and prevent even more craziness from occurring.
“We did it! We made it through all 20 episodes and, as expected, we are all barely hanging on by a thread emotionally. After seeing some of the recent blogs, it appears that some of us may not be doing as well as others and are lashing out and hitting below the belt. For a woman who works 18 hours a day, has 250 employees, three shows on Bravo, three restaurants, eight dogs, five swans, two tiny horses, two grown kids and a 70-year-old husband to take the time she took to write that mean blog last week…WOW! Eileen is a such a good, solid human being and friend, and she absolutely does not deserve any of this.”
“Never in a million years could I have imagined what would take place this year on RHOBH. It’s been emotional, turbulent, and downright ugly at times. Yolanda has had it the toughest. She’s continued to battle Lyme and been isolated from our group at times because of it. She’s suffered from the controversy and confusion surrounding the Munchausen comment. On top of all that, she’s had to endure the ending of her marriage to David. Now she’s in her new home as a single woman, and I hope this next step is full of great new beginnings. I loved when she and Erika talked about her best days being in front of her. It shows the kind of woman she is: strong, loving and positive.”
