Although I am sad that this season of Vanderpump Rules season is coming to a close, there’s nothing I love more than those reunion episodes and part one seriously brought the entertainment. Not only that, but I got to enjoy the Southern Charm season premiere right after that. You’re probably going to judge me for admitting this, but it was the best Monday I’ve had in a while.
It seems like there is a Kandi Burruss-centered story line in every episode of this Real Housewives of Atlanta season. She has been on the show since season two, but this is the first one where Kandi is really taking a lot of heat. It started with the demise of her friendship with Phaedra Parks and it has continued with Porsha Williams accusing her of attempted drugging and having a sex dungeon. Now Phaedra is involved in a lawsuit against Kandi and she did not see it coming… until she watched the latest episodes.
Erika stopped by Watch What Happens Live to address the intense episode with Andy Cohen and fellow guest, Real Housewives fanatic Megan McCain. I have to admit that I am an Erika Jayne fan, so it was tough for me to watch. It was the first time in Erika’s two years on the show when I found it difficult to back her up. I was nervous about the (deserved) backlash that she was bound to get for flipping out at Eileen for no reason.
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I was actually pretty moved by Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz wedding. I know we didn’t even get to the actual vows part yet, but it was so sweet when Jax Taylor and Tom Sandoval surprised Schwartz by flying out his triplet brothers to attend the wedding.
It was really nice, but a lot of the viewers were so confused by the couple spending so much money on towel invitations and flower arrangements instead of paying for his family to attend the event. Still, this is a way nicer criticism than the hate the couple has faced all season in response to their drunken arguments.
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.
