I’m just gonna be honest: I was bored watching the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion. Maybe it’s because this season has been so overblown. All the revelations about Lisa Vanderpump not showing were already out and it was just a big old meh. It was big old gushy fake love fest about how Kyle Richards is queen… And Erika Jayne needs one of Dorit Kemsley‘s CLIPs to be put over her mouth.
Speaking of clips, the ones in Dorit’s hair should have read, “Fake” “Broke” “Grifter” “Dog Dumper” “Liar” “Bad Designer” And worst of all, “PK’s Wife.” The rest of Dorit’s outfit looked like a disco ball blew up. Hey, they’re broke so reduce, reuse, recycle to make the most of life on limited means.
Tonight the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion we’ve all been waiting for begins! To be clear we’ve been waiting for this reunion because that means this ridiculous non-season is officially over!
All the ladies and Andy Cohen arrive on set expecting to finally get their long-awaited confrontation with Lisa Vanderpump to demand answers about PuppyGate, only to learn that Lisa isn’t showing up!
Of course this just means the women get to stick to their schtick of talking about Lisa instead of being real and honest about their own lives. That is until new scapegoat Camille Grammer shows up!
Kyle Richards, of course, makes LVP’s absence all about herself and bawls that she has paid the price for being honest with her former friend. Oh, yeah, sure Kyle…
Denise Richards opens up about Eloise’s rare disorder and becomes emotional discussing being a single mom and Aaron Phypers‘ role in her daughters’ lives. Lisa Rinna and Erika Jayne get candid about their sex lives and their husbands predilections, which honestly no one (literally no one) wants to hear about Tom Girardi doing sexy times!
Dorit Kemsley calls out Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave for her contribution to PuppyGate. Andy also shades Teddi for not being accountable for her role in the situation. I mean, LVP didn’t put a shock collar on Teddi. After all – she does have her own mind (when Kyle isn’t controlling her…)
Finally Camille joins the group and confronts Denise about being a two-faced friend. Camille also reflects about how her marriage and friendships have been affected by the wildfires and the show. Then Camille reveals where she stands with LVP and why she felt targeted by the other women.

TELL US – WHO DO YOU THINK HAS THE MOST EXPLAINING TO DO AT THE REUNION?

Even though she dropped out of filming, Lisa Vanderpump was THE topic of conversation this season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills thanks to the puppygate saga. Unlike most seasons, the ladies did not wrap up that storyline with any sort of peaceful resolve.
Instead, it dragged on to a point where most of the Housewives are not even on speaking terms with Lisa. Until this day. Months after filming wrapped. She showed up to the Season 9 premiere party and left early before her co-stars arrived. Lisa even had an awkward encounter with Kyle Richards while they were shopping. Needless to say, the anticipation was as high as it could be for an LVP reunion appearance, but did she show up? Did she film a separate segment? How did it all go down?
Even when she isn’t around, Lisa Vanderpump manages to be the most-talked-about person on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She stopped filming in the middle of the season, but production is doing a great job weaving in random kitchen remodel footage to make it seem like she stuck around a lot longer than she did.
Then, there’s that infamous lie detector test that she took with her boy John Sessa by her side. You know the one that Kyle Richards’ daughter’s friend supposedly saw with her own eyes. Does anyone actually believe that Alexia Umansky’s friend actually happened to be at the same lie detector facility as LVP? There’s little to no chance that actually happened. Someone in production definitely spilled the beans on that one. Now, there’s still one burning question and it has nothing to do with leaking a story. Will Lisa attend the Season 9 reunion taping?
So the days of our dramas rage on with the first segment of the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion.
Tonight continues the battle of the vajaynejayne as Erika Griradi and Dorit Kemsley (plus her plus one PK) discuss the minutia of pantygate. At this point I think they should all just call it even by joining a nudist colony. ENOUGH! Seriously – it is Eileen Davidson levels of obsession – and beyond.

The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion footage was barely in the can before everyone and their brother started hyping it. (Is that a good sign or a bad sign?) Andy Cohen continues stoking our curiosity fires by offering a few interesting nuggets from the reunion – namely that Lisa Rinna had a LOT of explaining to do on those couches, and that Dorit Kemsley’s fued with Erika Girardi rages on.
Andy says, “Flashbacks are not Lisa Rinna’s friend this season, unfortunately,” referring to the footage of Rinna talking to Eden Sassoon about Kim Richards’ sobriety. One would assume that this footage – which has driven many an episode and taken up far too much of my own personal brain space this season! – was highlighted front and center at the reunion.

Andy Cohen is STILL taking heat for the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion. Viewers are not happy about his refusal to press Yolanda Foster for answers, his decision to let Brandi Glanville film a pre-taped bitch session, or for allowing Lisa Vanderpump to be thrown to the wolves (again). Andy said he was trying to give Lisa the opportunity to speak her ‘truth’ – a courtesy that everyone deserves, even apparently Brandi. (Yeah, disagree!)
“I don’t think I took it easy on her at all,” Andy said of Yolanda. (‘Cause he is DEEEEELLLLUSSSIONAL – said in my Kristen Taekman operatic voice!) “As a matter of fact, when part one of the reunion aired, I got a million mean tweets from people saying, ‘Why are you being so mean to Yolanda and pushing her about her marriage?'” Andy claimed.
YEAH RIGHT. It was probably Daisy’s job as health advocate to those tweets.

In her final blog of the season, newbie Kathryn Edwards continued to defend Lisa Vanderpump and shared her overall thoughts on her first season on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Kathryn found the reactions to Lisa‘s emotion to be odd, “When Lisa V shared her story about being abused by a former boyfriend years ago, she teared up and became vulnerable. It felt like a cathartic moment, and it seemed as if some of the other women didn’t think she had these types of emotions. That was strange to me for several reasons and strengthened my feelings that it is more of a cultural thing.”
