Eileen Davidson managed to dodge most of the drama (what little there was) on this week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But she still breaks the episode down in her blog, commenting on everything from Lisa Rinna’s QVC hustle to Lisa Vanderpump’s reaction to she and Kyle Richards leaving their hotel in the Hamptons. As for the not-quite-sober ghost of Kim Richards haunting their Hamptons trip, Eileen supports Kyle’s wish to
save her own skin stay mum on the mess, but does admit “the topic keeps getting dragged out” no matter how much Kyle wishes it away.
Eileen calls herself out on letting hubby Vince see her dress’s price tag while packing for the Hamptons. “Having Vincent help me pack clothes with the price tags on? AMATEUR move! Lisa R. texted me when she saw this episode, ‘What were you thinking? You have to cut those suckers off!’ I’ve now learned: Always destroy the evidence. I won’t make the same mistake again.”

Concurring with Lisa R’s penchant for wiping down hotel rooms like a Dexter kill room, Eileen jokes, “Cooties! I do the same thing when I travel. It’s great to see Lisa R. in her element at QVC. Just casually hanging out in her selling bubble with Isaac Mizrahi, no big deal…not. We could all learn something from her hustle. And she seems she has the Midas Touch when it comes to selling to her customer, ‘Shirley.’ Go Lisa! Sell! Sell! Sell!”
New gal Erika Girardi is shaking things up with the RHOBH ladies! While Eileen isn’t so sure about her self-described “breezy vagigi” just yet (“Oh boy. I mean girl. I mean, never mind…”), she is impressed with Erika’s mothering skills. “I think it is wonderful that Erika’s son is a police officer. It’s such a challenging and dangerous job. It says a lot about how she raised him that he chose that field.”
As for Yolanda Foster’s surgery, Eileen shares, “I’m biting my nails thinking of Yolanda going into surgery. The procedure sounds scary enough, but nothing could compare to seeing that implant come out of her body. I cringed when her doctor said there was silicone webbed into her breast tissue. Double cringed when she explained the silicone leakage had traveled up to Yolanda’s clavicle. The whole thing was horrific…Let’s all hope this helps her regain her health.”
Finally breaking down the reason she decided to flee her Hamptons hotel suite before Lisa V even showed up, Eileen explains in her blog, “OK. There are two things I need in life (well, a few more things than two, but you get my drift): sleep and food. After my redeye to the Hamptons (because, unlike Erika, I don’t have one–let alone two–private planes), I figured out a new life motto: No bass music before 9 AM. The hotel we were supposed to stay in was lovely, except for the fact that our rooms were right off the pool. The pool where the club tracks started playing promptly at 9 AM!”
“Not only was there no room service, the one restaurant available didn’t even open until 1 PM. No food before 1 PM. is not OK. There wasn’t even a Jack-in-the-Box close by. Kyle was definitely feeling my pain, because with equal enthusiasm we escaped from the hell of the town’s ‘biggest and baddest nightclub experience.’ No. Thank. You. The happiness I felt being in that beautiful home (thanks, Mauricio!), where I could sleep in peace and be in the vicinity of a fully-stocked fridge was unparalleled. Lisa R. felt the same way after her five-hour drive.”
Eileen sees no reason why Lisa V should have been miffed with them, given the circumstances. “I agree with Lisa R.–it shouldn’t matter where we are sleeping, we showed up! I guess I was wrong. Plus, I was always taught it was polite to leave a note!”
Eileen continues, “I think all three of us are very surprised that Lisa V. felt like we abandoned her. We abandoned the nightclub, not you, Lisa V.! At first I think she’s joking, but it seems she’s really taken it personally. If just needing a good night’s sleep and a meal is high maintenance, then I guess I’m high maintenance?”
Even higher maintenance than switching abodes is the constant minefield of propriety when it comes to talking about Kyle’s sister and her Target-thieving ways. Eileen understands that “there is more to the story” when it comes to Kim, and that “It’s hard not to want to get to the bottom of it. But Kyle has said so many times that she wants to keep her family stuff private, and I will hold my curiosity to honor that. Unfortunately for Kyle, no one else agrees, and the topic keeps getting dragged out.” #unfortunatelyforallofus!
Hinting that this conversation isn’t even close to over, Eileen warns, “Now, it’s looking like the tension in the air about the room switch was only the beginning.”
