RHOBH: HURRICANE CAMILLE

We start out at Kyle’s, and Kim comes over. Kim seems to be doing wonderful and I’m beyond happy for her.  She’s loving life as a Grandma.  Kim and Kyle talk about how Alexia recently got a job at The Agency, and she loves it. Kyle invites Kim to The Agency’s Party – but she does warn her, Lisa Rinna will be there.  Kim says she probably can’t go.  This part is weird to me – they act like the apology between Kim and Rinna never occurred?  Kim tells us that her and Rinna “will never be friends”, but it would be nice if they could be civil. Whatever.

Over at Dorit and PK’s, Dorit fills in PK on what Camille said during that horrible dinner. (Also, LMAO at Dorit just causally riding around on that trike.)  Dorit says that Camille is two-faced.  PK confirms what Dorit said at dinner – he filed for bankruptcy ten years ago, so what does that have to do with anything now?  Dorit also brings up the Beverly Beach lawsuit. She says that because it’s ongoing, she can’t talk about it, and Camille knows this.  Interesting.  Dorit brings up The Agency party – unfortunately, PK can’t attend –his daughter, Atlanta, is in town, and he’s spending the night with her.  Dorit doesn’t want to see Camille and wishes he could go with her, but she understands why he can’t.

It’s the night of the party, and we catch glimpses of all of the girls getting ready and heading out. Dorit rides with Denise and Aaron, and you guys – I just love Aaron.  Favorite house-husband of all time.

Erika and Rinna show up together, and they’re both wearing wigs. I love these  two.

Camille arrives with her posse – Kimber, and Rose. (Is Kimber the new DeeDee? I think so.)  Camille comes in guns blazing.  After she really thought about what went down at dinner the other night, she decided that it was bullshit.  She’s totally disappointed in the girl’s behavior and their actions.  (LMAO, what about your behavior and your actions, Camille?)  She walks into the room and says to Kimber and Rose, “I feel like I’m back in high school with these bitches.”  She’s tired of being on the chopping block, and thinks that the ladies are “heartless.” Oh, please! Give me a break, Camille.

Camille and Kyle greet each other, and Camille instantly goes in on her. Teddi tries to step in, and of course Camille is not having that.  She literally puts her hand in Teddi’s face and says, “Shut it down, Teddi!” LMFAO.  Camille is on another level.  Teddi walks away, and she stops and fills in Erika and Rinna on what was going on.  Meanwhile, Denise, Aaron and Dorit arrive.

Rinna is confused by Camille’s sudden change of mood. After Dorit’s dinner, Camille showed remorse for her behavior.  (We even see a flashback of that, which is surprising.)  Rinna decides to confront Camille.  “Camille, can we have a chat with you?” Camille is so aggressive, I am dying.  “No.” Rinna still tries to proceed with having a conversation with her.  Camille tells her that the way the girls treated her, just because she was nice to LVP, is bullshit.  “Let’s figure out who the mean girl really is,” Camille says, getting in Rinna’s face.

Camille books it to the bathroom, and Denise follows her. Denise is like, “Let’s talk it out.”  Camille is not having any of this.  “I like you Denise,” she says, but basically tells her to stay out of it.  Denise isn’t staying out of it, though.  “You fucked up,” she tells her. “You owe Dorit an apology.” Denise thinks what Camille did to Dorit is unacceptable.  Surprisingly, Camille takes responsibility for this, and does say she wants to apologize to Dorit.

Mauricio and Kyle are giving their speech, and everyone is listening – except for Camille and Denise, who are literally still arguing. LMAO. Dorit turns around and is like, “Can you please stop?  He’s giving a speech.” 

The girls shut up, and once the speech is over, Camille pulls Dorit aside.  “Can I talk to you? I want to apologize.”  She tells her that she’s so sorry.  Dorit clearly doesn’t trust Camille, but she just lets her apologize.

I honestly don’t even know how Teddi ends up confronting Camille again, but she does. She’s pissed that she was so rude to her and doesn’t appreciate the way she talked down to her.  Camille literally doesn’t give a single fuck.  “Teddi, you have been so annoying to me,” she says.  Then she randomly brings up her daughter, Mason, and how Mason told her that Teddi snubbed her at the airport. Teddi adamantly denies that, which makes Camille even angrier, because her daughter didn’t make it up. 

Denise sticks up for Teddi, and Camille tells Denise to “back off.”  Denise is pissed and tells her, “You fucking back off!”  Denise tells us, “I can handle drama, enough is enough!”

Camille leaves, and the party is somewhat normal after that. Kyle brought wine from France so Denise could have some, and they all cheers.

Six months later….

Kyle has the girls over for lunch – minus LVP and Camille.

We learn that Camille has switched over to LVP’s side – we catch a flashback of her telling LVP that she felt like she was the target after she (LVP) left the group.

Meanwhile, the girls are all chatting. They talk about how LVP just opened up a new restaurant at Cesar’s Palace in Vegas, and Camille was in attendance.  Rinna tells us she actually ran into LVP in a parking garage.  She said she was trying to get money in her purse and her nails were wet, so Rinna asked her if she needed money. (LMAO, only Rinna.)  LVP declined, saying, “No! And even if I did need any, I wouldn’t take it from you.”  Kyle also fills us in on how she bumped into LVP at Neiman Marcus.  They had a much more civilized convo.  Kyle apologized for everything, and told her she wished it didn’t end up the way it was.  Lisa told Kyle she couldn’t get over the fact that she called her a liar, and Kyle says she didn’t call her a liar, that was what LVP took away from their conversation.  (Kyle, you called her liar.)  Kyle’s sad, because she knows that nothing will change, but she also feels a sense of relief, having seen her and having that closure. Kyle feels as though she was more invested in their friendship then LVP was.

Honestly, this group of girls do seem very close. Erika tells us she feels very close with this group.  We talk a little bit about what they’re doing at the end.  Denise moved to Brentwood, so I’m happy she found a home.  Rinna’s daughter, Amelia, is starting college in the fall.  Teddi is staying busy with her business.  Dorit is looking for a new home,  and we also learn Beverly Beach is doing well.  And Kyle says that she just doesn’t want any enemies.

Lastly we get LVP – she tells us she’s in a different place. “Out with the old and in with new.”

We leave off with the girls cheers-ing – “The future is ours!”

It’s weird, because I feel like a lot went down this season – but I also feel like nothing went down this season, too. My opinions on cast members have changed drastically from the beginning.  I really wasn’t a fan of Dorit when we started the season, but she’s one of my favs now.  I also really loved Camille in the beginning, until Season 1 Camille reared her ugly head.  I’m so over her and her victim mentality.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens next season….LVP has already said she won’t be returning, and I’d be shocked if Camille came back since she burned her bridges with everyone. Who will they cast?

In the meantime, we still have the reunion to look forward to.

Until next season…..

RHOBH: UN PETIT HANGOVER

What an episode!! I’ll admit, I’ve been totally bored with the BH ladies lately. I thought the Kyle/Teddi gang up on Erika was complete bullshit, and I’ve been sick of hearing about the ladies still talk about LVP. This episode hooked me right back in. I feel like the title needs an addendum – WHY THE LADIES TURNED ON CAMILLE AT THE REUNION. I had total Season 1 Camille vibes tonight. Let’s go!

We’re still in Provence. Teddi and Kyle wake up super hungover, and Teddi can’t really remember what happened the night before. She has no recollection of going after Erika.

Teddi and Kyle join Rinna for breakfast and they rehash the night. Teddi was crying the previous night, and Rinna was playing therapist. Teddi asks what happened between her and Erika, and Rinna fills her in. “You both said you didn’t think Erika has fun with you.” Kyle is totally nonchalant about this – she doesn’t think what she said is a big deal. Teddi is freaking out and feels terrible.

Erika is in her room, and Rinna goes to give her a heads up that Teddi and Kyle are going to try and talk to her today. They both feel bad about the night before, and I’m dying when Erika is like, “I’m sure they’re devastated.” 😂😂

They all do archery, which is awkward because no one has addressed anything yet.

When they’re done, Teddi pulls Erika aside and asks if they can talk. She apologizes and owns everything. She is sincere, and Erika sees that. She forgives her.

They go back out and meet up with the other girls, and Kyle confronts Erika with such a half ass apology. “I’m sorry if I hurt your feelings last night.” Erika is like, “You did my hurt feelings!” Erika considers Kyle a close friend and is disappointed in how she treated her. She tells her this, and she also tells her she thinks it was completely out of line. Kyle apologizes again, but it doesn’t come across as genuine to me. Erika says “Okay”, and then we move on.

Back in Beverly Hills, we’re getting ready for Dorit’s Beverly Beach launch, which will be displayed in Kitson’s Window. Dorit is excited but nervous. She also tells us that she recently named one of her cover ups “The Camille” after Camille. (Obviously.) She recently found out from Rinna that Camille has been talking about her behind her back, but seeing that Camille just lost her house because of the massive fires that are occurring around Malibu, she isn’t going to bring anything up.

All of the girls meet up for dinner that night – Kyle, Teddi, Rinna, Erika & Dorit haven’t seen Camille or Denise since the fires. Rinna and Teddi both brought them stuff, which was sweet. Camille arrives, and she’s immediately on another level. She tells them her life has been crazy – she had to evacuate her home, then her assistant passed away, and now her house burned down. She keeps saying she’s homeless, and it’s like – you’re not homeless Camille. Please don’t tell me your Summer homes aren’t real homes. I can’t. Of course I feel for anyone who loses their home – that’s devastating and I can’t even imagine being in that position. But Camille needs to remember that not everyone is as fortunate as she is. Not everyone has a summer home to fall back on. Camille says her daughter has been being a “total diva” and her business manager is out of the country for two weeks. She feels cursed and says her life sucks. She also starts to hate on her husband, and then she starts talking about how she went to some thrift store to buy a Burberry coat. (It still has dust on it!) Everyone is looking at her kinda like, wtf? I agree with Rinna 100% when she says, “Why would anyone have empathy for the wealthy?”

Denise chimes in, and basically says that they’re both very lucky to have the means and resources to start over. Thank you, Denise! 👏🏻👏🏻 Camille is super shady in her confessional and tells us that she doesn’t really think Denise understands what she’s going through. “Her rental didn’t burn down.” Ugh god, she is such a bitch.

Dorit and PK are heading over to Kitson to check on the window display. (I’m obsessed with Dorit’s outfit, in case anyone cares.) Dorit doesn’t like how it looks, so she goes in and fixes it herself.

Meanwhile, Teddi and Denise meet up and go shopping at Bash. They talk about France a little, and then Denise asks Teddi if Camille seems okay to her. Teddi feels like she can’t really answer that because they’re not that close. Denise thinks Camille needs to be more positive about the situation they’re currently in.

It’s the night of Dorit’s event. (Again, loving Dorit’s outfit!) The girls are all arriving, and I’m dying when Camille tells Dorit, “The more time I spend with you, the more I feel bad for anything I’ve said in the past.” Dead. 💀

They unveil the window, and everyone loves it. Someone says, “Genius!” And then we have a clip of Camille in her confessional saying, “Genius? Her reveal was a garbage bag.”

They all go to The Farmhouse for dinner to continue Dorit’s celebration. Erika and Kyle are totally fine – Erika has moved on and accepts her apology. Kyle invites all the girls to a party that she’s having for The Agency. Rinna looks at Dorit, and she’s like, “We’ve come a long way!” They truly have.

LVP gets brought up, and they establish that no one has seen her. Dorit is annoyed because Lisa has been invited to every event, she just doesn’t show up. They talk about how she didn’t show up to Camille’s bridal shower and wedding. “You let her off the hook,” Rinna says. (Stir that pot, Rinna.) “She should’ve come,” Camille states. “You shouldn’t have let her off the hook so easily,” Rinna replies, “but you did.” Denise is shocked Rinna is going here, because Camille gets upset for a moment. “I don’t think this is fair to her, she just lost her fucking house.” In her confessional she’s like, “Why are we talking about this right now?”

Rinna tells Camille that she had wanted to bring this up before, but then she lost her house so she couldn’t. Camille could’ve easily said she didn’t want to do this, but instead she replies and says, “Me losing my house is independent from this.” She says that if the ladies have an issue with her she wants to know. She’s pretty much asking for it, in my opinion.

Kyle says that what Camille said to the girls about LVP not attending her wedding and what she said in the magazine article were contradictory. Camille admits that she needs to say how she feels in the moment.

Fucking Teddi can never just let it go! 😂 She calls out Camille because she feels like she says one thing and then another. She doesn’t know what Camille says behind her back. Camille isn’t having this from Teddi – they briefly argue, and then Camille says, “I’m a flip flopper and you’re a know it all. I’ve been called worse.” (How shady are those editors those with all of those flashbacks!)

Dorit hesitantly brings up her issue with Camille. Rinna owns up to the fact that she told Dorit that Camille was talking about her, but she didn’t tell her what she actually said. Camille is blunt, to say the least. “I didn’t trust you,” Camille tells Dorit. “I didn’t know where you were getting all this money from.” In Camille’s confessional, she tells us, “Be careful what you wish for.”

Dorit asks what she’s talking about, and Camille says, “Your husband told me he filed for bankruptcy.” She goes on to say, “I just feel like you’re pretending to be someone you’re not. You live beyond your means.” Naturally, Dorit is blindsided and livid. She tells her that yes, PK did file for bankruptcy in 2008, and that was eight years ago, it has nothing to do with where they are right now. Camille isn’t ready to let this go, though. “Your husband owes a lot of money to someone very close to me.”

Everyone is shook at this point. “Oh please!” Dorit squeals dramatically. Denise pipes in – “This is crossing a line.” Camille looks at Dorit and says, “You came after me!” Rinna chimes in and says that Camille didn’t say all of this before – she was very vague with her claims. And Rinna is also a very firm believer in never going after the husband.

Camille literally still isn’t done yet. “I know things for certain.” Her tone is menacing, and Dorit tells her, “Don’t you dare threaten me.” Camille replies, “I’m protecting you!” Dorit is disgusted. “You’re a little snake,” she says to Camille. Denise tells Camille to stop, but she just keeps at it. “Protecting her is not saying anything at all,” Denise says to Camille. Rinna tells the table, “This has to stop now.” Camille won’t stop, and Denise continues to be the voice of reason. I don’t remember who the first one to go is, but one of the girls gets up, and then they all do.

Everyone is out, and everyone is clearly just as shook as I am about Camille’s behavior. I’m sorry, wtf was that? Camille is fake as fuck. You act like Dorit’s best friend to her face, say you feel bad for stuff you said about her in the past, and then you air her dirty laundry? Season 1 Camille came out to play tonight. And she plays dirty.

What’d you guys think? Are you Team Dorit or Team Camille?

Until next week…..

RHOBH: EAT, DRINK AND BE MARRIED

img_7561

 

We start out with Erika & Mikey meeting up with the Pretty Mess Team to discuss Erika’s upcoming Pretty Mess Tour. They’re going over her set – they’re switching things up a bit, and they’re going to have multiple costume changes.  One of the outfits is basically an homage to that latex outfit Erika wore in Berlin (that flashback gives me life, LMAO.)  Erika is super excited, and I absolutely love seeing her in her element.

img_7566

Over at Haven & Co, Kyle, Dorit & Teddi are shopping for a wedding gift for Denise. They’re not sure what to get her.  Dorit tells us, “All I know is that she likes tequila.” LMAO.  Kyle’s disappointed that she’s going to miss the wedding – but not because she’s such a good friend, but because she can’t believe Denise managed to throw this together in 2 days, and she wants to see if it will be pulled off.  According to Kyle, this has “disaster” written all over it.  (I can feel myself turning on Kyle again, FYI.  I believe Lisa Rinna would call me a flip flopper.) Teddi tells us that her wedding was pretty low key, but still took 6 months to plan.  Of course Dorit had a lavish, over the top, Gatsby style wedding.  “We were living in LA, our wedding was going to be in NY, and our wedding planner was in London.”  Serious eye roll, stop it.

I know I said in past blogs that I saw a pattern with LVP, and while I do still see that, I’m also starting to see a pattern with Kyle.  Kyle seems to like this drama – why else is she constantly bringing LVP up? She tells Teddi that she’s going to see Lisa at Denise’s wedding – how does she feel about that?  Teddi’s not worried; she said her piece, and she feels like she and LVP can co-exist.  Kyle tells us in her confessional that she hates that her two good friends aren’t getting along.  (Why don’t I believe this?)  She says she tried getting LVP and Teddi to meet and talk, but neither of them were interested.  I mean….I would’ve believed Kyle if she hadn’t continuously filled Teddi’s ear with negative talk about LVP.  I don’t buy this.  I don’t understand why Kyle would have it out for LVP, but there’s something sketchy about this that I’m just not getting.

aaron and denise

Denise and Aaron are at Cypress Sea Cove, where they potentially hope to have their wedding. (Which is 2 days away, FYI, LMAO.)  They instantly fall in love, and they tell the coordinator that they’ll take it.  When he realizes how quickly they want to get married, his jaw drops.  I’m loving Denise you guys, she is seriously so friggen chill.

rin

Rinna’s in a hotel room, alone, and FaceTiming Denise. They’re talking about her wedding, and Rinna doesn’t think Denise is rushing into anything.  She talks about her own wedding with Harry Hamlin, and how they got married at their house, and everyone held a candle and the entire ceremony was lit by candlelight.  Rinna informs Denise she would not miss her wedding for the world, and she’s excited to see her.

lvp.jpg

LVP & Ken are looking at kitchens – Lisa wants a new one; she hates her kitchen, she says it’s so dark and dreary and depressing. I am LOLing at LVP trying to sell the idea to Ken – a new kitchen would make her so happy and she needs to be surrounded by pretty, positive things.   It would also increase the value of the house, LMAO. A new kitchen is good for the soul.  Preach, Lisa.  The kitchen she’s looking at is absolutely gorgeous. She gets it.

aa

It’s the night before the wedding, and Denise doesn’t even have her dress yet, yet she’s still so chill and so calm. I legit aspire to be Denise Richards – her carefree attitude is so refreshing, I wish I could be this way.  I love that Denise invited Charlie – she invites him to anything involving the kids, which I think is wonderful co-parenting.  “Even if he brought a prostitute as his date, I wouldn’t care.”  DEAD, LMAO.  Denise does share with us that she’s sad her Mom won’t be there – her mom passed some years ago, and she wants to light a candle in honor of her.  Very sweet.  Aaron’s only qualm is that they didn’t tell her daughters sooner – Denise tells us in her confessional that she waited to tell the girls because she was afraid her teenage daughters would judge her, LOL.  Sami and Lola are both totally fine with it, and Eloise clearly loves Aaron.  Aaron is the absolute sweetest – when he gave the girls necklaces, I was basically crying.  I love this family.

img_7562

img_7563

It’s the day of the wedding, and everyone is arriving. Erika & Rinna come together, and Erika is wearing one of Rinna’s QVC jumpers.  I love it, I think she looks so chic and simple, and pretty.  Rinna’s dress is a little bit crazy, but it’s totally her – floral print/leopard print mixture.  The girls are all looking pretty, but it’s clear to me there was no dress code for this event.  Everyone’s wearing totally different looks.  Teddi’s look is my favorite – I feel like she’s the most appropriately dressed for a beach wedding.

Teddi tells us she is not having any drama today. “I can ruin a 50th birthday party, but a wedding!?  Come on.”  LMAO.

Meanwhile, Denise is still at her house, late for her own wedding. But she literally doesn’t care and is just going with the flow and I love it.

img_7559

LVP arrives, and I’m honestly uncomfortable watching her make her rounds with the girls. Everyone is so fake in Beverly Hills.  Those double cheek kisses kill me.  I get it, it’s a wedding, and you’re all going to be polite and cordial, but it’s just so phony and gross.  LVP playfully smacks Rinna’s ass, and Rinna tells us that she “doesn’t have any beef with LVP right now” (that’s weird – you’ve been out to get her all season, but you have no beef with her?) and that “LVP is obsessed with her.”  Okay, I love Rinna, but come on – LVP is so far from obsessed with you.  It might be the other way around.

Teddi catches wind that it’s past 2:00 PM, and that’s when the ceremony was supposed to start. I’m actually LOLing at Dorit – “Denise, you’re on her radar.”  She calls Teddi the Punctuality Police.

At Denise’s house, she’s almost ready to go. One of her daughters can’t walk in her heels, and Denise is like, “Well, they’re Louboutin’s, so you have to figure it out.”  Her daughter asks if she can wear sneakers, and Denise is literally like, “Yeah, I don’t give a shit, wear whatever you want.”  I seriously love her.  Denise Richards is a breath of fresh air.

img_7557

Everyone at the wedding is freaking out that Denise is so late because they’re all sweating and melting, LMAO. Denise arrives shortly after, and everyone is totally relieved.

img_7556

img_7555

I love love love this wedding. I totally feel Denise when she  says she doesn’t like being the center of attention, so she’s glad she’s walking down the aisle as a group.  Sami and Lola go first (and yes, one of them, sorry, can’t remember which one, is in fact, wearing sneakers) and then Aaron, Denise & Eloise walk down the aisle and I’m crying.

img_7552

Overall, the wedding is gorgeous. The ladies all got along, and Dorit feels like she and LVP are finally moving on and moving past all the dog drama.  LVP, however, does not feel the same way.  She was basically cordial because they were all at a wedding, but she actually feels like the girls owe her an apology, and she didn’t get one.

img_7565

The wedding is over, and Dorit and PK are at home, getting ready for bed. Dorit’s on her phone, and she gasps at what she sees.  There’s an article on Radar saying that LVP feels betrayed and stabbed in the back by friend Dorit Kemsley, after she dropped her dog off at a shelter.  Dorit is appalled – “This is untrue!”  She goes on to read more, and she’s convinced that Lisa is the one who leaked this story.  She knows that Lisa has a relationship with Radar, and the article mentions that Lucy was a Chihuahua Mix, and only LVP and her team knew that.  (I think anyone who saw the dog could have guessed Lucy’s breed, but that’s just my opinion.)  The article also states that Lucy “nipped” at Dorit’s children, and PK points out that “nipped” is an English word.  (We’re really reaching right now, you guys.)

While I do still believe Lisa set up Teddi to punish Dorit – I truly do not believe she leaked the article.  I think if anyone did, it was probably someone from Vanderpump Dogs – I’m guessing John Sessa.  I just don’t feel like LVP would need to.  The story was already out there, going to Radar would be so unnecessary, and way too obvious.  I do feel somewhat bad for Dorit – I don’t believe Dorit mistreated the dog, and I don’t believe she brought the animal to a kill shelter.  But at the end of the day, literally none of this would have happened if Dorit followed the protocol of Vanderpump Dogs and brought Lucy back to them.  End of story.  It was so refreshing to not talk about Puppy Gate for majority of the episode, that I can’t even get into this anymore right now.

img_7571

Next week looks explosive…it’s the scene we saw in the first episode, the massive fight between LVP and Kyle, when LVP kicks Kyle out of her house. (Literally all I can hear in my mind right now is Ronnie  & Ben’s voices from the podcast Watch What Crappens yelling, “GOODBYE, KYLE!” in their Ken voice.  If you don’t listen to them, you should.  Also, they’re selling merch right now that says “Goodbye Kyle” on it, and I feel like I need to go shop on their site.  Also, this is not an ad, I just truly love Watch What Crappens.)

Anyway….what do you guys think? Who leaked the story?

Until next week….

RHONY: IT’S A CLAM SHAME

 

We pick back up at Barbara’s Clambake, where Lu is shocked to see Ramona stroll out behind Sonja.  “I was not expecting Ramona,” Barbara tells the girls.  Bethenny tells us Ramona will probably put clams in her purse for later – LMAO, she’s actually not that far off.

img_7429

Ramona can seriously be so awful, but it’s almost funny because I truly think she lacks the self awareness of just how cruel can she be.  She tells us that she met Barbara around ten years ago, but she’s “not really my kind of girl” – she’s not a girl’s girl, she’s masculine.  LMAO, like that’s so rude.  I can’t.

img_7421

The Clambake is the first time Tinsley has seen Bethenny since Dennis passed, and she gives her condolences to her.  Bethenny is wearing an engagement ring – we learn that Dennis had proposed to B, and although she didn’t actually say yes, she didn’t say no, either.  She tells us that her engagement with Dennis was “on ice.”  She’s been wearing the ring because she feels like Dennis would want her to.  I think she should wear it if it makes her feel happy.  She probably feels closer to Dennis wearing it.

img_7422

Once Ramona approaches, Lu immediately comes for her.  “Ramona, let’s cut to the chase.”  I feel like in Ramona’s mind, she was probably like, “OMG, it’s only been ten minutes, we can’t do this until the 30 minute mark!” LMAO.  “Another time,” Ramona replies, and casually strolls away.

img_7423

Ramona quickly moves away, and begins chatting with Barbara and Sonja.  “Look at her reporting to Barbara,” Lu snickers.  Ramona is pleading her case to Barbara, and basically sticking up for Ramona, but this is all a little bit too much.  Ramona’s kind of playing it like she’s a saint, and Barbara isn’t here for that.  “You spread lies about her.”

img_7439

“What lies?” Ramona asks innocently.  Barbara tells her, “You said she got kicked out of Chris Birch’s party, and that wasn’t true, I was with her.”  Ramona goes on to say something went down at some hotel after, but I don’t really know, nor do I care.  This is stupid.

Sonja asks Ramona if she’s given her condolences to Bethenny about Dennis, and she says yes.  Sonja’s like, “You did?” And Ramona says, “Through text, yeah.”  “No, I mean today, in person,” Sonja replies.  Ramona refuses to say anything to Bethenny in person today, because in Bethenny’s eyes Ramona is always doing something wrong.

Back over with Bethenny, Lu, and Tinsley, B is filling us in on a guy she is going to go out on a date with.  It’s just dinner, and she feels like it’s kind of soon, but I understand her wanting to be preoccupied and keeping her mind busy.

Lobsters.jpg

img_7420

img_7430

Ramona and Sonja join them, and they’re saying their goodbyes. “You just got here,” Bethenny says.  They tell the girls that they feel bad for Dorinda, so they’re going home early.  Barbara told them to take some food back for Dorinda, and I’m dying because Sonja and Ramona are literally filling up bags worth of lobster.  Tinsley is mortified.  Lu is being such a bitch though, and saying that no one can take the lobster.  This is not your clambake, Luann.  Quiet down.

img_7424

Once the girls have gone, Bethenny mocks Ramona and her “Crazy Eyes.”  “Who leaves someone’s house with multiple lobsters?” LMAO, I mean, she has a point.  So tacky.

img_7446

The Brunette’s enjoy the rest of the clambake.  Lu, Bethenny and Barbara all end up in the pool, and they’re having fun.

ramonas house

Back at Ramona’s, Dorinda is surprised at how early the girls are home.  (LMAO, I am Dorinda.  “I thought I’d watch some Law & Order.”)  They rehash the clambake.  Luann has been insinuating that Dorinda has a problem and needs rehab. I was glad that Tinsley noticed that Lu was definitely the aggressor in this situation.

“Dorinda, she’s still hurt!” Sonja cries.  “I’m still hurt!” Dorinda exclaims in return.  They’re all talking over each other, and somehow Bethenny and Dennis get brought up – something about Dennis helping someone with money, and how he’s smart.

Ramonaaa

OMG, Ramona can literally be so crude and disgusting.  I am appalled at what comes out of her mouth.  “How smart can Dennis be? I mean, he was on drugs.”

Sonja

I think all of us are Sonja in that moment.  I honestly don’t even want to talk about this, because I have zero tolerance for anyone who talks poorly about someone who has a drug problem.  That was a truly repulsive thing for Ramona to say, and I’m not even going there.  Tinsley shuts it down real fast, and Sonja is pissed.
img_7447

Back in the city, Bethenny is on her way to the Carolina’s because they were hit by a hurricane.  I love Bethenny’s desire to help people, it’s truly admirable.  She uses her platform for good, and it’s such a nice thing to see.  I loved watching her interact with the people at the shelter – these people are struggling so much, and they’re beyond grateful for the help Bethenny is providing.

Dorinda meets Barbara at Sarabeth’s for lunch.  Dorinda had reached out to Barbara, because she wanted her to hear her side of the story, not just Lu’s.  Dorinda wants to see Lu without outside forces around.  I agree, I think that’s probably the best way for them to resolve their issues.

Sonja’s photos from her Paper Magazine party are literally giving me life.  She’s killing it.  I agree with Bethenny – “She looks like a Tom Ford ad.”

They girls all look so gorgeous, but I’m obsessed with Sonja and Dorinda in their leopard print.  “Leopard makes you feel powerful.”  PREACH Dorinda!

Everyone is here, and I’m LOLing that Sonja invited her psychic.  Tinsley brought Dale, her mom, with her, and we seriously need a spinoff with like, Dale, Mama Dee, Patricia from Southern Charm…OMG that would be epic. Anyway.

Bethenny and Dorinda are having a nice, genuine conversation.  John is coming, Dorinda’s boyfriend, and Dorinda’s happy with him.  “You have to remember, we don’t live together,” Dorinda reminds Bethenny.  LOL.  Dorinda goes on to say that what she has with John is a different kind of love than she had with Richard (her husband, who passed away in 2011).  She feels like Bethenny had that type of love with Dennis, too, and you don’t just get that again.  Bethenny fills Dorinda in on the engagement ring – and we learn that Dennis gave Brynn a ring, too, which I thought was beyond sweet. Both of the ladies are emotional.

John arrives, as does Luann and Barbara.  Dorinda tells Bethenny she plans on confronting Luann tonight, and Barbara immediately wants to put her two cents in.  Dorinda tells her to butt out basically, and Barbara is offended.  She practically runs back to Lu to tell her what Dorinda is saying.

Bethenny calls Lu over, and Dorinda is freaking out.  They both approach each other – and then we’re hit with a TO BE CONTINUED.

Thoughts?

Until next week…
