Really quick before y’all start reading, what (or who) is Munchausens?? Is she a fancy, rich German lady who will be joining the cast on next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? No, no, it’s Lisa Vanderpump’s next club endeavor after the popularity of SUR and Pump, right? Wait, is that the brand of Yolanda Foster’s coveted refrigerator? Sorry, my bad, is it just the name of Lisa Rinna’s new line of incontinence products?
It’s been an entire season, and I’d rather debate the definition of Munchausen (and to be clear, I know what it is…I saw Sixth Sense!) than pick a side between the Lisas. Who’s with me? That question is easy to answer…Kyle Richards. She’s dissecting the RHOBH finale, and she’s trying to be as impartial as possible. Best of luck to her. Discussing the volatile episode, Kyle opines, “Well, here we are. Back in Los Angeles after our whirlwind Dubai trip. Much of what I wrote last week really pertains to this week as well. I know it is confusing to some since this happened off camera. That always makes it a difficult story to tell. What happened that day at LVP’s when Rinna said the word Munchausen was very clear to me, which is why I confronted LVP right after. We had the discussion in her bathroom. That is when I said, ‘I know what you’re up to, and I will take you down in flames with me’ half laughing, because I just didn’t want to make a big deal out of it.”
“So as the sun sets on the Hills of Beverly, the shade is cast in my direction.”
Lisa admits she feels incredibly hurt and had “no interest” in watching the past few episodes, but adds, “I encourage you to watch closely as some delusional characters play out this exhausting scenario. I have a second-hand account as to what you have seen, but my memories and experience can see me through.”
She says, “I was strangely pleased to hear that Lisa R. sees the trip to Dubai as “sad,” because it was. It was really sad watching friendships go down the drain over what amounts to nothing, in my opinion. Lisa R. wrote in her blog last week that it’s time to move on…I hope that the friendship is salvageable. It would be a true shame if they couldn’t talk it out and move past this…it shouldn’t have ever gotten to this “silly, mind-numbing” level.”
I hate a finales in general. Everyone circles like sharks, lurking for damage control, eager to take down the pre-appointed prey. And to the shark with the sharpest teeth, go the tastiest camera morsels. However, it’s important to remember that sharks are not smart – they are reactionary creatures whose successful existence hinges on their ability to annihilate prey quickly and effectively, which accounts for their survival, basically unchanged after millions of years. This is where Housewives fail. Their takedowns are rarely streamlined, timely, or effective.
Such is the case at Kyle Richards‘ party, held in the house she stole from Kim Richards. What a shocker that Kim is there, holding a sign that reads “Property Of KimKillah.” I believe Brandi Glanville did her hair and makeup. That is the only excuse for the bootleg I Dream Of Jeanie looking Bump-it hair and wandering cat-eye makeup. But at least Kim isn’t smuggling vodka in her iced coffee. Instead, she’s smiling, eager and willing to pretend all the nastiness of Palm Springs pasts never happened.
Yolanda just returned from Tahiti and says she should’ve just moved there because it was wonderful and she’s feeling “better and better every day.”
Erika and Yolanda are asked what did they think about Ken callingLisa Rinna a stupid bitch and a wanker? Yolanda says “I’ve heard it before. He called me a bitch. I’ve seen it before and I wasn’t happy about it.”
On the subject of Yolanda’s split from David, her former co-star Brandi Glanville weighed in her two cents on the situation. “It’s tough. I can’t imagine moving and then also going through a divorce all at the same time. [Going] through one of those things at a time is hard enough. I move so often, it’s so stressful to me, I can’t imagine moving, being sick, and then dealing with a divorce in the public eye. Because I’ve done them all separately, not being sick, but I’ve done the other two separately and it is beyond exhausting and taxing — God, she’s the strongest person I know.”
In a newly released clip we see Lisa Rinna putting Lisa Vanderpump on blast, claiming that LVP wanted Lisa R to bring up Munchausen for fear there would be no storyline this season if she didn’t. Vanderpump tries to shut her down with a denial, but Rinna has brought along Andy’s favorite reunion prop: evidence!
While the Lisas battle it out, a wounded-looking Yolanda Foster sits and looks on as the women battle back and forth over what was said. She tearfully gets up and rushes off the stage, with Erika running after her a minute later.
Erika just released a teaser for her upcoming music video for the song “How Many.” Erika’s lyrics seem to mirror her attitude about the entire season: “How many fu**s do I give? None, not one, zero, zero, zero, done.” There’s just something about the song, the costumes and the hair, it gives me a Gwen Stefani and Paris Hilton’s older auntie gone wild sort of vibe. Take a peek and tell us what you think of Erika’s newest masterpiece. Hopefully Bethenny weighs in, too.
Before you listen, I would clear the area of children or co-works or anyone who’s easily offended. There are a lot of F-bomb in the 30 second clip.
The song will reportedly be available on iTunes later this month.
