Last night the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills traveled the globe in search of magical little ponies and mythical caftans that will disappear all of their gloom. Unfortunately money can’t buy you mini ponies or magic muumuus!
Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump are shopping in Italy. Kyle is wearing – and I really must focus on this for an extended period of time – a cropped, cold-shoulder string-tie MUUMUU shirt, over black PJ pants. With large floppy hat. This woman needs an intervention. NO MORE mom-cazh!
The worst of the worst of the worst is that Lisa and Kyle are shopping in an Italian caftan store. Naturally the conversation flows (see what I did there) towards Richards-Hilton family dysfunction and Kyle’s decision to attend the wedding. Let’s be honest Kyle went to Italy so she can tell people she bought clothes in Italy, and Kyle wants to go to Nicky’s wedding so she can tell people she went to a Rothschild society wedding.
Speaking of Kyle, she’s got her take on last week’s episode, and she’s spilling her feelings regarding her invitation, shun, and reinstatement as a guest at niece Nicky Hilton’s wedding. As for Lisa Vanderpump’s meddling and Ken Todd’s comments about her size, Kyle isn’t keen on what she watched, but she’s willing to let it slide. Ol’ Splits has been on this show long enough to learn that she can’t be talking smack in blogs…she’s working on her image!
Lisa starts with words of compassion for Eileen Davidson and her family over their loss of Dick Van Patten: “It was a poignant, sad moment that tugged at my heart as you realize how great the family’s loss was. Life is all about saying goodbye, and I felt for them.”
“Seeing Eileen and Vince go to Palm Springs to honor his late father, Dick Van Patten, was quite touching and heartfelt,” said Lisa. “He was an extraordinary man that we all felt close to because so many of us grew up with him! As far as TV fathers go, Dick was among the most iconic. Watching Eileen [Davidson] and Vince honor him at his star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars and at his celebration of life was beautiful. It was an honor to have seen him when I did at the Burbank Film Festival last year.”
Yolanda Foster’s (extremely confusing) health struggles are front and center on this season’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. While some castmates are rallying around Yolanda with words of support and encouragement, others are questioning the extent – and even the validity – of Yolanda’s many symptoms. Alliances are indeed being formed. And despite her “Lyme Brain,” Yo seems very clear about who’s on her team!
After thanking fans for their “unwavering support,” Yolanda expresses compassion for Eileen Davidson’srecent loss. “A big hug to Eileen and Vinnie for their loss of the amazing Dick Van Patten. I know how much they both loved him. Having lost my father at an early age, I have great empathy. The loss of a parent is profound at any age.”
It’s time for the sick, sad, dysfunctional world of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills! Thank goodness for the beautiful Tuscan scenery and the epic way Lisa Vanderpump put Kathy Hilton‘s BS on blast or else I’d be suffering from a case of Lymopause-depression! I can’t wait for Erika Jayne‘s kooky-crazy next week to infuse this show with some fun weirdness, because melo-lyme-dramatics is too much!
Yolanda Fosterneeds to break-up from “stabbing in the dark” and “playing detective,” as she refers to the menagerie of ‘treatments’ she’s trying to cure Lyme. What is making Yolanda sicker – the Lyme Disease or all the crazy she’s dumping into her body? Yolanda’s Bathrobe is becoming the new Yolanda’s Fridge, and YoBathrobe just doesn’thavethe same appeal. Lady needs to detox from detoxing, and instead of a weekly colonic to harvest tapeworms, how about a facial, a nice relaxing, massage, a bottle of wine and some My Love sexytimes! Or possibly a trip to the snooze-inducing Amalfi Coast?
Horses were a huge part of Bella‘s life until recently; so much so, she hoped to compete in equestrian events at the 2016 Olympics. “That was my goal,” she shared, “but I didn’t know I was going to get sick. I was exhausted all the time. It affected my memory, so I suddenly would not remember how to drive to Santa Monica from Malibu, where I lived. I couldn’t ride. I was just too sick. I had to sell my horse because I couldn’t take care of it.” I feel sad for Bella.
Whether she’s exaggerating the details of her Lyme disease or not, Yolanda Foster certainly has a loyal ally in fellow Real Housewives of Beverly Hills castmate Eileen Davidson. And who wouldn’t want Eileen (You Beast!) on their side during tough times? This week, Eileen discusses how Yolanda’s illness stirred up her own feelings of family loss. She also weighs in on Kyle Richards’desire to keep her family mess swept cleanly under the carpet. Hint: Eileen thinks it should stay there too!
“It’s another emotional week here as Vincent and I continue to deal with the loss of his dad, Dick Van Patten,” begins Eileen. “It was a bittersweet moment visiting his star on the Palm Springs Walk of Fame. The outpouring of love and support from so many people whose lives Dickie touched has been a tremendous experience. We continue to try to heal after this loss and try to look at the world like Dickie did: hopeful, humorous, and upbeat. But, as we continue with the grieving process, it’s hard not to reflect on all the other losses my family has gone through.”
