My first Real Housewives of Beverly Hills recap! What a special moment!
This is the first time there is NOTHING else on a Tuesday, no This Is Us, no Bachelor Winter Games — I can dedicated myself to my 2nd favorite housewives franchise (New York being the first).
Beverly Hills is the only franchise I watched since the beginning (missing a season or two in-between things) but it’s one that is always entertaining to me, and maybe that’s because they are the most outlandish in the way they flaunt their money and I love that.
I’ve been enjoying this season, and I love the return of Camille Grammar. I hated her season 1 but quickly fell in love with her in Season 2.
We start off the episode with her and her daughter Mason, who is prepping for NYFW. I love how all these ladies are grooming their daughter to be the next Bella & Gigi (and Kendall). It’s so obvious and it frustrates me but I kind of love it.
I like seeing Camille as momager more than Rinna, that’s for sure.
It’s the morning after the little fight at the Bar Downstairs (right?) and the ladies are SILENT in the car. Kyle says what we’re all thinking, that Dorit has never been this quiet.
The ladies roll up to the fashion show that Mason is walking in, and there’s some seating issues that are quickly forgotten.
Of course, Lisa Rinna makes the fact that Mason is walking in her first fashion show about her and her modeling brood. UGH.
As Camille talks about her daughter’s life and the changes they’ve been through the past few years, I get choked up. I really need Camille as a full time housewife.
The ladies are getting glam for an event at Kyle’s New York Store and I could watch Erika Jayne get ready 24/7. Can we have a permanent camera with her and her glam squad?
Rinna and Kyle recap the night before when Dorit left in the middle of the fight, and Vanderpump left with her fake British friend. Kyle feels hurt that Lisa refuses to defend her, after all they’ve been through.
It is true; as much as I love Lisa Vanderpump, she has a tendency to not side with Kyle who has continually taken bullets for Lisa.
It seems that Kyle (I keep typing Kylie) is jealous of Lisa and Dorit’s friendship and I don’t blame her— I don’t think she’s being childish, I think it’s normal to feel like your best friend is choosing another best friend over you, continually.
Especially when that 3rd friend is as insufferable as Dorito.
Dorit requests that she come speak to Lisa Vanderpump before they head to Kyle’s party… we then transition to Teddi who I haven’t decided if I like or not. Initially I liked her, but now I find her rather annoying.
Lisa calls out Dorit on her calling her needy and insecure, which Dorit says she didn’t say but kind of says it’s not a bad thing to be.
They start talking about Kyle and how she feels that LVP has different rules for different friends.
LVP says that she loves Dorit and wants to work it out, but only because LVP loves PK. BURN. She is the best at underhanded compliments/digs.
Essentially they make up and all is well, for now.
We run back through some flashbacks for Erika’s best looks or costumes as she calls them, and it gives me life. If you don’t love EJ, what are you doing with your life?
Why is The Fat Jewish back here? How did he and Kyle become friends? Why does he show up at her fashion events?
God, I love that woman more than life itself.
I love a good crossover and I love that Kyle and her have been friends for so long.. 25 years to be exact.
Side note, Kyle looks really good with short hair! She tucked it under to try out the look and it works on her.
Of course Bethenny gets caught in the middle of the threesome fight and defends Kyle, the way she deserves to be defended. LVP is not having it though — Bethenny will always win.
“Dorit’s not British” — Kylie
“Really? What’s that accent?” — Bethenny
Bethenny, like the rest of America, does not understand where Dorito’s accent is from.
LVP ‘apologizes’ with the backhanded apology of “I’m sorry if you were upset” and Kyle & Bethenny call her out on it. LVP says she’s through fighting and walks away.
OK WAIT A HOT SECOND. I INTERRUPT THIS TO SAY THAT I DIDN’T REALIZE THIS IS US IS ON! WTF, I SAW NO PREVIEWS OR ANYTHING FOR THIS.
I logged onto Twitter to see ThisIsUs trending and was so confused. Shame on me!
Ok, back to RHOBH
Kyle and Dorit are now having a conversation about their friendship… I really don’t understand what the issue is. Every season has a fight that makes no sense and this year, it’s the threesome fight.
We’re back in Beverly Hills and all seems right…
Um, how cute is Jagger? He is PRECIOUS!
On another note, Harry Hamlin is SO HOT.
Teddi goes over the LVP’s mansion and they’re discussing the fight between Kyle and LVP. Teddi explains that all Kyle wants is an apology from her friend.
“Don’t make this about Dorit, make it about Kyle” is what Teddi says and she tells Lisa that Kyle is always going to bat for her, she needs to acknowledge it.
Lisa says that she’s going to see Kyle for dinner so maybe our favorite twosome will make up.
We’re back with the RInna/Hamlin household and I don’t really care about their new puppy or that they miss their daughter/sister. Sorry, just owning my truth!
Lisa and Kyle are at dinner and LVP says she is scared (my words) of her relationship with PK being over and Kyle asks if she’s scared of losing their relationship.
She admits that her and Kyle are closer than her and Dorit, and she cares more for Kyle because it’s a longer friendship.
LVP FINALLY apologizes for neglecting Kyle and it’s a real, sincere apology so all is well in Beverly Hills!
