Last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills saw many familiar faces return. However, all eyes were on two; Camille Grammer and Brandi Glanville. These two women know how to spice up a season and serve THAT drama. This city used to be sooo good, and these two are part of the reason for that. Hopefully, they’re here to save the season and give us what we want.
Brandi is allegedly spilling some major tea in this episode. We also know the women are heading to Rome soon. By the sounds of it, things won’t be sunshine and roses for Denise Richards in Italy. Everyone is gunning for her. Everyone has an issue. We know about the affair rumors, but what else does Brandi have up her sleeve? In addition to Brandi, will anyone be willing to hear Camille out? This woman is trying so hard to make amends!
I’m having a little bit of FOMO watching this party. It just looked like such a blast with so many names. I know people hate half of the guests, but I’m here for them.
Teddi Mellencamp wants no part of Camille. Denise doesn’t seem to into the idea of speaking to her either. Camille does seem to be trying her best to patch things up. Denise ends up being more forgiving, but Teddi won’t budge. Teddi clarifies that her biggest issue is with Aaron Phypers, not Denise herself. It does feel inappropriate the way her inserts himself into everything.
Kudos to Camille to showing up into this lion’s den knowing they hate her. I certainly couldn’t do it. You couldn’t pay me enough. She was able to move on with Denise and Kyle Richards at least. That’s a start. However, if she’s going to continue with this group, more need to be willing to forgive.
What a fun treat for everyone to get treated to Wilson Phillips! Dorit Kemsley with the shade at Kyle saying she had the idea for surprise concert first.
IT IS SO GOOD TO SEE BRANDI AND ADRIENNE MALOOF IN A GOOD PLACE. After all they’ve been through, who would’ve thought it? It’s a little shocking to hear Brandi apologize for outing that Adrienne used a surrogate. They allude to the fact that Lisa Vanderpump was behind that explosive storyline. No surprise there.
Brandi tells Aaron and Denise that she would love to be in a throuple with them. Aaron looks so uncomfortable, but it was kind of hilarious. I mean, last year Erika Jayne said the visuals of them having sex was up there with her favorite porn. People are really into the idea of sex with these two apparently.
Listen, I like Brandi, but she’s a whole hot mess at this party. So so drunk and falling all over the place. Having fun is one thing, but nobody wants to deal with a sloppy drunk. Ever.
Things seem to be heating up with Garcelle Beauvais and her new beau. Unfortunately, she’ll be missing Erika’s big Shoe Dazzle event. Shocker. Garcelle is missing yet another group event. If you’re that busy that you can’t ever be around, why be on the show? She has great energy, and I love when she’s around, but she’s hardly ever there.
Erika’s shoe event looks gorgeous. The visuals are stunning which isn’t anything new with her. I know she gets a lot of flack for using the show for self promotion, but doesn’t every wife do that? I don’t think it’s a huge deal. However, I can see why some fans are fed up with it. They want more from her or to just leave.
At the party, Lisa Rinna drops the bomb that she’s taking everyone to ROME. Erika is leaving for four months for Broadway, so this is their only chance. Love them or hate them, the trips these ladies take always top any other city. They go to the most glamorous locations!
Denise talks about seeing The Pope on their Rome trip. HONEY. BABY. DO YOU KNOW WHO THIS GROUP IS? THE POPE IS NOT THE RIGHT AUDIENCE. Are you trying to traumatize the poor man? I would pay good money to see that though.
Denise and Erika walk aside for a chat about the recent drama. It’s clear Denise is trying to clear the air, but Erika’s real issue is with Aaron. When she tries to talk about Aaron, Denise shuts it down. I get that Aaron is Erika’s biggest issue, but she wouldn’t let Denise speak like at all. It’s supposed to be a two sided conversation, but it felt like Erika didn’t want Denise to have a voice. Stuff like that is why Erika is often accused of being cold.
Garcelle and Sutton Stracke meet up for drinks and are both looking lovely in red. Both of these women are a breath of fresh air into this franchise. WE NEEDED THEM. By next season, they’ll be top tier housewives in my opinion.
Garcelle asking Sutton out of nowhere how she got her money is hilarious. I love how direct she can be. Sutton’s face was golden. Some people may find that tacky, but she did it in a playful curious way. There was no bad intentions behind the line of questioning. I can’t believe she asked her if she lost her virginity to her ex husband though. She is trying hard to make the Southern belle blush.
Kyle’s daughter comes over to Rinna’s to help her and Amelia Gray find an apartment. Now that Amelia is home in California and not in New York, she needs her own space. There’s so many things that she wants though. It’s wild to me that someone is going to have such a huge space starting out. She has no idea how lucky she is.
Amelia is paying for the apartment, so I guess it’s cool if she has demands. You can tell she has a lot of anxiety though because she sounds nervous about everything. Mental health is no joke, so I have nothing bad to say about her list of wants. Whatever makes her feel comfortable!
Before the women jet off to Rome, Kyle has Teddi over. She’s going to throw her a baby shower, but she hasn’t done anything. Kim Richards shows up and weirdly leaves Brandi in the car. No clue why she’d leave her there when Brandi was just at Kyle’s a few days prior. That felt really odd. Hmm.
Clearly Brandi was already mic’d, so obviously she planned on filming. I suspect we are on the verge of some truth bombs here. Kyle fills Brandi in on what’s been going on with Denise in the group, but Brandi looks nervous. Kim mentions that Denise did something to Brandi, and now the floodgates are open. HERE WE GO..
This moment is going to set the tone for the rest of the season. Whether or not you believe Brandi, this is going to be the big reveal that leads to everything else. Brandi says that Denise isn’t who she pretends to be and they should be careful with her.
Brandi reveals that Denise called Teddi obnoxious and will do anything to be in the group. She also claims tha Denise called Erika a cold hearted bitch. Holy f**k. If that’s true, these women are never going to forgive Denise. Brandi is so shaken up for some reason.
Brandi says Denise has something on her and that’s why she confides in her. She breaks down talking about cheating and says she’d never ever do that to someone else. She’s very sensitive to it.
According to Brandi, the first time she and Denise met, they made out. If only it ended there. Brace yourselves people, it gets a whole lot worse. Eventually, she and Denise allegedly went on a trip out of town where they had sex. Brandi was under the impression that they had an arrangement and Aaron was okay with it. It turns out that wasn’t the case.
The next morning, Denise allegedly told Brandi that they can’t tell Aaron because “he will kill her”. Brandi’s brand is basically about never wanting to ever be the other woman. She became everything she has always hated, and had no idea. After this went down, Denise apparently acted like Brandi never existed. This led to Brandi having a breakdown and filling Kim in on the situation.
There was no contact between the two until the night before Kyle’s event. If this is true, it explains Brandi’s nervous behavior at the party. I’m just going to say it…..I believe Brandi. I’m sorry, but I do. Kyle says Brandi can be a bitch, but she doesn’t know her to be a liar. I’m inclined to agree.
What this group does with the information moving forward is probably going to be ridiculous. What we really deserve is a face to face between Brandi and Denise. We flash ahead to 18 hours later, and Teddi fills Rinna in on Brandi’s hot tea. Rome just got a whole lot more interesting.
TELL US – DO YOU BELIEVE BRANDI’S ALLEGATIONS ABOUT DENISE? SHOULD THE GROUP BE MORE FORGIVING TO CAMILLE? ARE YOU ENJOYING THIS SEASON OF THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS?
