First they ask Brandi how things have been going since we saw her last. It involves a whole lot of cardboard boxes. “All I do is move, move, move no matter what! Since last year’s RHOBH reunion, which was incredibly emotionally draining, I’ve moved not once but twice. I continue to defend myself against a defamation of character lawsuit filed by a fellow ex-Housewife from a different city. My two boys are growing into little men and are doing not just good but AMAZING. We have a new full-time roommate–my best friend and former hairdresser known to many as Mark, who is now transitioning into a woman and wants to be known as Mia.” Brandi also shared that she stays busy with her many projects – a new book, her podcast, wine, etc.
I’m not going to lie, it’s been a rough start (in my eyes, at least) for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newbie Kathryn Edwards. At times I think she’s a refreshing addition to the cast, and others–sheesh–she needs to dial it back a bit! However, on this week’s episode, she seemed very genuine, fun and humble. I truly enjoy her dynamic with her husband (how precious is he?), and I appreciated her ability to apologize sincerely to Erika Girardi’shusband.
Revisiting Monday’s shenanigans, Kathryn recaps, “This was an exciting week for me for several reasons. First and foremost, my ear doctor’s appointment for my hearing aid. I want to clarify with everyone who might have questions about this device…I am still completely deaf in my right ear. The device is called The Phonak CROS. It picks up sound on my deaf side and transmits the sound to the ear I can hear with. So now, when someone sits on the right side (my deaf ear) and talks, I can hear them. Also, it magnifies the sound of everything, making it as close to what a person with normal hearing would hear.”
A caller asks if Lisa would hireStassi Schroeder to work at SUR again. “NO.” Lisa says her presence onVanderpump Rules is “authentic” because she’s still very much a part of that group but she will not employ her. “She’s too much a pain in the ass,” Lisa mutters under her breath. Ha.
“I kind of took a backseat to all the other issues this week. Clearly there are still a lot of problems brewing with everyone, but the real important issues were the causes being supported,” shares Eileen, who goes on to write a mean-spirited blog influenced by her “other” issues with Lisa Vanderpump. Sad.
Lisa Vanderpump has endured her fill of being called a manipulative spider. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star admits she “withdrew” from the drama and has not watched the remaining episodes. Instead she’s approaching the remainder of the season (and the reunion) with utter futility and switching her focus to important issues.
“I cannot invest in the vicious conversations, the aggressive pettiness from some Housewives who clearly have little else to focus on,” explains Lisa.
