Before we get into the lemon-lyme mess of moushchen-houschen-doth-protestest-too-much, the ladies are still in San Diego recovering from the Erika Jayne treatment. As if the Erika Jayne gyration experience wasn’t enough, she gave them whiplash when she bold-faced lied the night before. Nevertheless the ladies are climbing aboard Erika’s golden tour bus for a trip to Kathryn Edwards‘ house. At Kathryn’s they may not have c-nty necklaces, or a plethora of naked male dancers, but they do have a fireplace of stones imported from Jerusalem!
Over brunch Eileen Davidson demands an answer to who told Yolanda that Bella and Anwar’s Lyme was discussed (and lied about the context). Finally Erika confesses. No one asks why she lied the night before, or to Yolanda. She claims she merely mentioned the discussion to Yo. The side-eye of Lisa Vanderpump does not believe her.
Yolanda and Andy talk about her daughters being everywhere – on magazine covers, walking in the fashion shows, etc. Andy mentions that Lisa Rinna was at the Tommy Hilfiger NYFW show at the same time Yolanda was but Yolanda says she didn’t know it until Anwar asked, “Isn’t that the woman who said you had Munchausen’s disease?” Andy praises her for getting the pronunciation of Munchausen right. She says she had a lot of practice from hearing it on the show so much. He plays a montage of all the times Yolanda attempted to pronounce the word on RHOBH.
After all the drama and arguing, the ladies are treated to brunch at Kathryn Edwards‘ San Diego home, which is still under renovation, but hospitable nonetheless. Unfortunately brunch becomes a cesspool of emotions, as brunch often does on a Real Housewives show, when Kim Richards issues are brought up and Kyle Richards reacts. However, the moment prompts Kathryn to reveal a painful secret from her own past.
Yolanda arrived at the Tommy Hilfiger show to support daughter Gigi Hadid. With a picture of Gigi in her hand. Because, of course. Moments later, Yolanda kissed said picture (see the shot below) for the cameras. Because, let us never forget, Yolanda loves her Gigi.
Dallas newbies LeeAnne Locken and Tiffany Hendra were being interviewed on Dallas radio station 103.7 when Erika called in to share what she’s learned so far being a Real Housewife. “If I can give you both one piece of advice it is to just be yourself in all situations and don’t compromise. You really have to be true to yourself and if you can do that you can walk out with your head held high.”
Lisa Vanderpump is again defending and explaining herself in regard to Bella and Anwar’s Lyme situation and is frustrated over the whole mess. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star starts this week’s blog, “Here we are once more. Hold my hand as I lead you down the path of this complicated journey.”
On Cryotherapy, Lisa was just trying to be a good sport for Yolanda’ssake. “Of course it was an incredibly strange experience, but the invitation had been extended, and I accepted, albeit reluctantly, but I wanted to connect with her and feel we were supporting her in her quest for well being. As we left, I felt a giddiness, one from the experience, but mainly from the giggles and the fact that we all bonded in such a positive way. I had no idea what was about to ensue. Lunch was ordered and medical records were served.”
Yolanda Foster and her endless “journey” are infesting this season’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills like lice in a kindergarten class. Everyone’s itchy. But Patient Zero is not happy (or rather claims she’s not happy) about her children getting involved in her StoryLyme. Because she’s only interested in exploiting them through sick-kid selfies, photoshopped by Yo herself! Yolanda took her her blog this week to go on…and on…and on about the many splendored feelings she has about her health, her children’s health, her castmate’s opinions about her and her children’s health. You know, the usual!
After thanking Bravo viewers – AGAIN – for partaking in this “journey” with her <gag>, Yolanda writes, “I am happy to share that it’s been a pretty good week…What is a good week? For me, it’s about more bright moments of ‘I’ve got this, I CAN DO THIS!’ than usual. Treatments, pain and severe fatigue still keep me in bed 18 out of my 24 hours each day, but I am grateful for the luxury of reading and writing again. Healing the brain is a slow process and on its own clock, but I am for sure making steady progress–one day at a time.”
