Have you recovered from this week’s explosive Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills yet? Has the fair city of Hong Kong survived these women? Eileen Davidson tries to make sense of all the nonsense in her blog, claiming that she knew Erika Girardi would eventually lose it on Dorit Kemsley over the Pantygate issue. She also figured it would happen on a boat. Let’s face it: This group does not do well in enclosed areas.
Eileen reflects, “I knew from the beginning that the thing between Dorit and Erika would eventually come to a head. What I didn’t expect was to have Lisa [Rinna] and me dragged into it as well. Dorit’s reaction was surprising. Erika had some strong words – probably because she had been keeping the deep embarrassment and hurt she had for ‘pantygate’ in for so long. Instead of sincerely apologizing, Dorit landed some pretty harsh critiques back. Calling Lisa R. ‘low-class’ and to ‘question if Erika has feelings’ was uncalled for.”

As for Dorit’s conversation with PK about Erika needing everyone to “worship” her, Eileen calls bullsh*t. She slams the Kemsleys in her blog, arguing, “Both PK and Dorit saying that Erika has an inflated sense of self because she ‘pays people to love her’ is just plain creepy, especially coming from the only other woman who brought a glam squad to Hong Kong, I might add!”
Eileen continues to break down the Dorit/PK situation with Erika, which she insinuates is hypocritical. She writes that there’s “a lot of confusion about intentions here. One minute we see PK and Dorit saying – as they’ve done many times – that Erika was putting it all out there and making crass jokes at her expense. Then on the junk boat, Dorit said how no one ever questioned that Erika flashed PK on purpose! She even insinuated as much to Lisa R. and me!”
Yup, sounds about right to me. You know, as much as I wanted to like Dorit (and still do), her obsession with having a “connection” with Erika has felt creepy and forced from the starting gate. Or maybe it’s just PK that’s rubbed his creep factor all over her and now poor Dorit can’t get the stank off? Hmm. There’s some kind of con going on with those two and I just can’t put my finger on it…
Oh well – back to the trip! Visiting the Buddha in Hong Kong provided a momentary respite from the drama. Eileen recalls, “We all needed some serenity the next day. The gondolas were terrifying, but the perfect way to experience the views of the green, misty mountains. I think visiting the Buddha statue brought a sense of calm and wonder to each of us.”
“And that feeling of peace and serenity lasted all of us…until dinnertime,” jokes Eileen, who questions why she ever stepped into the mess at dinner. “Last week, I said that we as a group don’t do well on boats. Let’s add restaurants to that list. It got heated. It got ugly. I felt like I needed to step in only when I saw Dorit was genuinely trying to apologize. Erika was not in the place to hear that. I didn’t feel it was right at that point not to try to help to find a resolution. When will I learn?”
When Eileen said “it’s not like she’s killed your children” to Erika, referencing Dorit’s perceived offenses against her, Erika flipped. Eileen explains that she in no way meant to be derisive of Erika’s actual child – a grown son who works for the LAPD.
“What I said was a hyperbolic statement intended to mean, ‘It’s not as big of a deal as it could be.’ This was for some perspective when Erika said nothing Dorit could do would make it right. I never, ever, EVER considered that Erika would take it as me disrespecting her or her son. Nothing could be further from the truth.”
“I felt absolutely awful,” admits Eileen. “After the initial shock, I realized that there were some more things going on to lead Erika to that reaction. She was absolutely right, I don’t know how that must feel, but I have tremendous respect for the sacrifices her son makes and the sacrifices of her whole family.”
