RHOBH: SUN & SHADE IN THE BAHAMAS

We’re in The Bahamas, at Baha Mar. What a gorgeous resort. The girls are all heading to their rooms, and they plan on meeting at Dorit’s suite later that night to have drinks on her balcony.

LVP is rooming with Dorit after all. They’re out on the balcony talking to each other, when Dorit asks, “Are you happy to be good friends with me?” Lisa loves to tease Dorit, and responds, “Yes, because right now I’m reaping the benefits.” Dorit doesn’t find this funny. She’s paranoid that LVP is holding a grudge about Puppy Gate (that’s what I’m calling this from now on) and I can’t say her paranoia is misplaced.

Teddi & Kyle are chatting in their room that they’re sharing. Teddi shares with Kyle that she’s getting along with Dorit better. Jagger & Cruise (Teddi & Dorit’s children) have bonded, and they’ve both set their own differences aside for their kids.

Back over on Dorit’s balcony, she tells us & Lisa that she’s so glad Lisa came on the trip, and she’s happy that they can connect. I do believe Dorit does feel terrible about Puppy Gate, and she just wants things to go back to normal with LVP.

Switching back over to Teddi & Kyle – they discuss the jabs LVP was throwing towards Dorit on the PJ, and how they believe Dorit’s feelings were hurt. Neither of them believe LVP is over Puppy Gate.

The Girls are all getting ready for drinks, and Rinna is the first to arrive at Dorit & LVP’s suite.

Can I just say I fucking love Denise? These bitches faces when she walks in her white tank & white shorts – so snobby! Except for Camille, who is such a sweetheart. (“I love your shorts!”) I’m LOLing when Denise tells us, “I packed the wrong shit, I learned that quickly.” I totally get where she’s coming from – you’re having drinks on a balcony with the girls. I would’ve worn cute pajamas, but that’s just me. πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Kyle & LVP are talking off to the side, and LVP is emotional when she tells Kyle that she should make up with her sisters. We learn that Kyle & Kim are okay, but Kyle & Kathy are not. Rinna joins them, and LVP tells them both that Elvis, her butler, is going to bring his cat to her room. Kyle comments and says, “Maybe that’s why Dorit had an allergic reaction, is she allergic to cats?” (Side note: earlier in the episode, Dorit apparently had an allergic reaction to something, we don’t know what. She took Benadryl & was fine.) Lisa Vanderpump says, “I don’t know, we should find out.” Then fucking Kyle blurts out, “Maybe she’s allergic to dogs.” I literally yelled ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME KYLE at the tv screen at this point. Cause that wasn’t premeditated at all! (Insert eye roll.) Rinna comments how it just got really quiet, and wants to know what’s going on. LVP is keeping quiet, but Kyle can’t let it go. “Are you still mad at her?” Kyle asks LVP, referring to Dorit. Rinna is completely in the dark, or at least she’s pretending to be. They end the conversation and join the other girls.

Kyle – WTF is your end game here?

The next morning, Kyle & Teddi are in their room and they’re talking about the night before. Kyle tells Teddi that “Dorit’s dog came up” and it’s like, yes, Lucy did come up – because of you. Rinna joins them, and then they both fill her in on the entire Puppy Gate scandal.

I honestly do get what Rinna was saying – I do believe LVP was trying to set up Teddi &/or Kyle. I think she’s still pissed at Dorit, and wanted a way to get this out there without having to dirty her own hands. The entire situation at Vanderpump Dogs the day Teddi & Kyle visited was bizarre. If LVP didn’t want it talked about, I guarantee you it wouldn’t have been brought up. I actually think LVP had John Blizzard tell Teddi via text, knowing she could use it against her later. However, I don’t think Kyle is innocent in all of this – she was intent on talking about it.

The girls boat off to some private island, and they’re all having a blast. LVP & Denise are getting massages and bonding over the fact that they both adopted children, which was a heartwarming moment. The rest of the girls are swimming and drinking and just having a good time.

Rinna really came to play this season. The girls all sit down for lunch, and Rinna tells the group that Dorit brought them all on the trip to address anything that needs to be addressed. (Stir that pot Lisa.) She wants the girls to go around the table and say who has an issue about what, etc. (Lmao, only Rinna.) She tells us, “It opens up conversations.” To which Camille replies, “Or it could open up Pandora’s Box.” Camille still goes along with it though, and she brings up the fact that she had issues with Dorit last year (does “Camille you’re a stupid cunt” ring a bell?) but she’s moved past that and she’s enjoying her time and thanks Dorit for inviting her.

Dorit brings up the issues she’s had with Teddi, and how they’re both working on moving past it and how their sons became fast friends.

Erika has nothing to say, she’s good, and then it’s over to LVP. She tells us it’s just nice to be amongst friends….but-”

If she’s being absolutely honest, she has to address the fact that Erika didn’t call her when her brother passed, she sent a sympathy card/note. This is beyond ridiculous. Erika & LVP are NOT friends. They work together and film a TV show together, and have the same group of friends. Erika was not obligated to call Lisa. A sympathy card 100% suffices. Erika is pissed at being called out, and rightfully so. She pretty much tells LVP off, and tells her to not try to make her out to be the bad guy. Lisa gets emotional, and she tells Erika she’s sorry and wants to put it behind them. They do make up, and the awkwardness disappears.

Later that night, the girls are getting ready to go to dinner. Rinna stops by Erika’s room, and they talk about what went down at lunch. Erika says she doesn’t understand what happened at the table today, and Rinna agrees. Erika pulls out her phone and shows Rinna a picture of the card she gave to LVP. “Bitch, you come with receipts!” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

The girls are at dinner at Cleo’s, and they’re all chatting and enjoying each other. (We learn that Teddi was going to be named BabyDoll LMAO, & Kyle was supposed to be a boy, so she was named after a football player.) Rinna & Dorit get up to go to the bathroom, and Kyle takes this opportunity to confront LVP.

“I’m feeling really weird about all the side convos right now about the dog.”

Erika chimes in and immediately is like, “I don’t want to know this.” Teddi says that she & Kyle didn’t want to know it either. Teddi then asks LVP if Dorit knows that they know about the situation, and LVP tells her that Dorit knows that she knows, not Kyle. Teddi looks anxious & exasperated.

Rinna & Dorit are back from the bathroom, but the conversation doesn’t stop. Teddi says that she felt anxious, because she felt like she wasn’t truthful to Dorit.

Dorit clams up and says she doesn’t want to go to a bad place.

Teddi tells her side of the story – which is the truth. Everything she says is accurate – Teddi & Kyle were at Vanderpump Dogs, and John Blizzard and John Sessa brought out Lucy.

Dorit looks absolutely horrified. Rinna tells LVP that she should’ve shut it down, and LVP shoots back, “I have 400 employees, I can’t control what they all say and do.” (Bullshit.) In LVPs confessional, she tells us that the situation wouldn’t have happened at all if Dorit handled it properly. I agree with that 100%, however, I don’t believe LVP is as innocent as she’s pretending to be.

Dorit begins to re-explain herself, and at the end of table, Denise looks confused. “I don’t even know what these bitches are fighting about.” Lmao.

The girls are all arguing their own points, and then Rinna jumps in. She turns to LVP and says, “This wouldn’t get out there if you didn’t want it to. It’s a set up.”

I can’t say I disagree with Rinna on that. LVP tells Dorit that she doesn’t believe for a second she had any ill intent, however, the dog should’ve been returned to her from the get go. LVP is not wrong.

Dorit becomes upset, and Teddi, Kyle & Rinna comfort her, while LVP asks, “Why is Dorit upset?”

LVP also says that she had no idea Teddi would be gossiping about it, which is complete bullshit. Teddi’s had enough and she storms off, leaving us with a cliff hanger.

Honestly, I’m over talking about Puppy Gate and it’s only the 3rd episode. Do I think LVP is mad at Dorit and wants to punish her? Yes. Do I think LVP tried to use Teddi and Kyle as scapegoats? Yes. Do I think Kyle wanted to get this out in the open for whatever reason during this trip? Yes. Do I think Dorit was wrong for not just giving Lucy back to Vanderpump Dogs to begin with? Yes.

However, this entire situation is so overly dramatic. I understand that Lisa is grieving, but this could’ve been shut down a long time ago. If LVP was mad at Dorit, which she clearly is, then just fucking own it! She would have every right to be mad at her. What Dorit did was wrong. Good intentions or not, Lucy still ended up at a shelter. But LVP insisted she wasn’t mad at Dorit, so in that case, stop talking about it.

What a shit show.

Next week, we see Ken has printed out texts between Teddi & John Blizzard (I think), and I’m just like shaking my head. Ken is such a chick, please give me a break.

God, this episode was utterly exhausting. My highlight was living vicariously through Erika Jayne and her 70 inch pony tail and fabulous Glam Squad.

Until next week…..

RHOBH: EAT YOUR HEART OUT

Not going to lie, I feel like this episode was totally a filler episode, which is honestly unacceptable this early on in the season. But I will say that I love Erika Jayne so much, and watching her gives me genuine joy. Anyway.

We start out with Kyle meeting LVP at Villa Rosa. They head out to Epione, where Lisa “rejuvenates her neck.” Honestly, this scene made me sad, because we know that in real time, Lisa & Kyle aren’t speaking. I feel like they truly do have a good friendship, it seems sincere to me & they always have fun together. They’re being silly; Lisa gets laughing gas before getting the fillers, and they’re just having a good time. It feels as though they’re totally good one on one, but can’t handle being friends with everyone else around.

Erika meets Rinna & Dorit for lunch. Erika orders a beer – whatever they have in a bottle, and Dorit loves this. She starts reminiscing on old times, where she did “keg handstands” when she was 16. (Isn’t it just called a keg stand? LOL.) Dorit fills Rinna in on the robbery – and somewhat of the Lucy situation. She tells Lisa that she can’t even talk about the dog situation. It’s clearly bothering her. Dorit also suggests a Girls Trip.

They talk about possible places they could go (Erika nonchalantly saying, “I think we have a place in Tahoe” is giving me life πŸ˜‚) and they end up settling on The Bahamas.

Over at Denise’s, we’re learning more about her and her family. She has three daughters, Sami, who we see in this scene, Lola, and Eloise. Sami and Lola’s Dad is Charlie Sheen, and Eloise, the youngest at age 7, was adopted. Denise actually addresses that there was a rumor that Eloise was Charlie’s daughter, that he had with a hooker. She says it’s untrue. They have a beautiful house on the beach in Malibu, and Denise’s boyfriend, Aaron, also lives with them. Denise and Aaron have been together for a year.

Denise asks Sami about Homecoming – Sami says she hasn’t been asked, but she’s going if she does get asked. Denise tells her she can’t date until she’s 16, and that her father would agree with her. Sami calls her dad (Charlie) right then and there to ask him, and I love his response that he would trust her judgment about who she would go with. Denise disagrees, but we don’t talk about the conversation any further.

At Dorit’s, we watch her telling PK that she is planning a Girls Trip, and is going to invite everyone. Yes, even Teddi! Dorit says that she wants to give Teddi a chance – their arguments have all been trivial, and she’s ready to move on. PK asks if she’s going to invite LVP, to which Dorit replies, “Of course.” It’s obvious Dorit is fretting about the Lucy situation – she tells us in her confessional that she just hopes Lisa knows that she had good intentions. She wants to move forward with that situation also.

I have to say, you guys, PK was kinda sorta growing on me in this scene. I know – like WTF!? I don’t know – he just seemed really supportive of Dorit & it was nice. I’m sure I’ll change my mind next week, but for now, I’m okay with PK. πŸ˜‚ (Please don’t roast me.)

Teddi & Rinna meet, and they’re going on a hike/walk. Teddi tells Lisa about a role she just played in a movie. She says that she wanted to be an actress when she was younger, but her manager told her she had to lose weight if she wanted to get a role, which crushed her. Hearing Teddi talk about her struggle with food was very relatable to me, and is probably relatable to a lot of people. Teddi said that “food was her best friend” – she was an emotional eater. I understand that feeling completely. Honestly, Teddi is inspiring to me. I feel like I need an accountability coach, and I wish I lived in LA so she could be mine. Also I give her so much credit for all of her hard work and determination. It’s so motivating. You go girl.

Kyle visits Mauricio at work, and she gets emotional when she talks about the fact that Sophia is leaving for college. Mauricio is really sweet – he reassures Kyle. I understand where Kyle’s coming from – I’m not a mom, but I think a lot also has to do with change. It’s hard.

At Rinna’s, she’s taking to her daughter Amelia, who has opened up about the fact she had an eating disorder. Amelia seems wise beyond her years to me. She addresses the disorder and says, “I’m not out of it. I’ll never be out of it.” Which is true of anyone who has an eating disorder, addiction, mental health issue – you can get through it, but it’s still something you battle for the rest of your life. Amelia is very strong and very mature, especially seeing that she’s only 17.

Lisa Rinna is having the girls over to do some baking/pastry making/I don’t really know what. LVP & Kyle aren’t coming – Kyle is doing a Tequila Tasting w/Mauricio (did I hear that right?) and Rinna says that Giggy is sick.

Cut to LVP & Ken – she meets him at the restaurant for lunch, and she tells us she’s just too emotional to go over to Rinna’s and put on a happy face when it’s just a facade. Totally understandable. Lisa tells Ken about the girls trip, and he thinks that Lisa should go. Lisa admits she could use the break but is worried about leaving, especially with Giggy being sick. We learn that Giggy needs a pace maker and my heart breaks. Poor little babe. Lisa also brings up Dorit, and tells Ken – “Sometimes Dorit calls it wrong.” She tells us in her confessional that she thinks Dorit handled the Lucy situation all wrong – but she loves her anyway. (Side note: If all of this is true, then why the hell are we still talking about!?)

Back at Rinna’s, the girls are all getting along and being silly. We learn that Aaron, Denise’s boyfriend, is currently still married to Nicolette Sheridan. She tells us that they’ve been separated for two years but their divorced isn’t finalized, and they’re getting married as soon as it is. We then learn that once upon a time Harry Hamlin was also married to Nicolette Sheridan. LMAO, did not know that. I’m not sure if Rinna says she cheated on him with Michael Bolton, but we all cheers to him, so that’s that.

The girls are all ready to go to The Bahamas – they’re off in the PJ. I actually really liked Dorit in this scene, she was so excited to be the one who planned the trip.

She tells LVP she wants to share a suite with her, and LVP says she’s not sharing a room with anyone. LVP is a tricky one sometimes. I honestly feel like this was Dorit extending an olive branch to her, and then they could be alone, off camera, and have a chance to talk and clear the air, and make things right between them again.

However, after LVP says she’s not sharing with anyone, she asks Kyle if she can stay in a three person suite with her. (Something along those lines, I might have the wording wrong.) Kyle then sticks up for Dorit, who looks hurt.

LVP says that Dorit snores, and I can’t tell if she’s just poking fun at Dorit and trying to be silly, or if she’s actually just being a bitch and this is her way of trying to get back at her.

Next week, shit looks like it’s about to go down. And I cannot wait.

Tell me all your thoughts! Leave me a comment.

Until next week….

RHOD: SEASON 3 REUNION PART 1

Holy shit. I have so many thoughts after watching Part 1. This was absolutely insane and we’ve barely covered anything! Staying neutral is going to be so hard but I’m going to try my best.

Before I start – can we talk about how beautiful the ladies look? I’m loving (almost) everyone’s look. I’m not crazy about Kam’s – I’m all for pink, and I actually do like the dress, but her makeup is a little much. I also generally despise cut out shoulders, so Cary’s dress is not my favorite but she still looks gorgeous. My favorite look is definitely Steph’s; so natural yet still so glamorous and beautiful. D’Andra is a total Boss Ass Bitch in that pants suit – Slay, Queen. πŸ‘ΈπŸ» Brandi always looks amazing in blue, totally her color. I also agree with Andy, I’m loving the high pony. LeeAnne is literally glowing, loving the dress, so pretty.

We start off with Andy greeting all of the Delightful Divas of Dallas. We learn that Brandi’s adoption is finalized, Mama Dee did not take the keys back from D’Andra, and Steph feels amazing being married to a Harvard Man. Andy tells Cary she “spilled the tea” in Denmark – he has questions about her casually mentioning that she dated Lance Armstrong. (It was only like, 6 months to a year.) Moving on to Kam – “Hey Girl” ~ LMAO Andy has her down. He calls her Nicole Kidman’s doppelgΓ€nger and I never noticed this before but I totally agree. Kam’s day is made. Last but not least; “Namaste, LeeAnne.” I’m literally crying watching them meditating – and at Brandi’s “WTF is going on?” Face. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

We start off lightly, and we have a montage of all the fun times the girls had. Steph & Brandi make me LOL every time I see them together. Callie-Roo is basically famous at this point. Andy asks Steph if the kangaroo is legal, and Steph says she honestly doesn’t know. We’re all laughing at Kam riding the bull, and how she pronounces it. We flashback to Steph having her vaginal rejuvenation procedure and Andy asks how Travis likes it. Literally only Andy Cohen could get away with these questions! LMAO.

We get to our first viewer comment, and it’s about LeeAnne giving D’Andra a lap dance when they were at the rodeo, and that it looked professional. Andy asks LeeAnne if she was ever a stripper (legit only Andy!) and she says no. She says it looks like it could be a good job, because she “talks shit for a living” for Andy. Andy compliments her on her shit talking, but I’m thinking this is more of a dig than actual compliment.

I hate being back in Beaver Creek so much, everything about this scene infuriates me. (Except for Brandi’s impersonations.) Andy asks if Justin Bieber rented The Westcott’s home in Beaver Creek, and we learn that he did not, but Taylor Swift did. (I think that’s so cool! I’m such a celebrity stalker LOL.)

Andy brings up D’Andra and LeeAnne arguing over who the “Queen Bee” is, and LeeAnne tells us that D’Andra (supposedly) said that being a housewife is all about status, and that none of them were actually qualified to be housewives until she joined the cast. Brandi interrupts LeeAnne and said that D’Andra never said that when they are at Beaver Creek, and D’Andra speaks up and says she never said that. Cary chimes in and says, “She said that there wouldn’t be a show without her.” I’m sorry, I call total bullshit on that. Cary has literally been tattling on EVERYONE all season – you honestly expect me to believe that D’Andra said that and this is the first time Cary is bringing it up? Please. πŸ™„ Brandi interjects and says that LeeAnne is the one who says that, and then she does an impression of her, saying, “You carry this show like a turtle on your back.” (Andy laughing at this made me LOL.) D’Andra also adds that LeeAnne is the one who went to InTouch Magazine, saying that there would be no show without her, and that, “all roads lead back to LeeAnne Locken.”

The girls continue arguing, and then D’Andra drops a bombshell. “LeeAnne, for two years I’ve held a secret about you so I’m going to reveal it right now.” D’Andra says that before she joined the show, LeeAnne told her that Cary was going to “Fat Shame” her like she did to her husband, Mark, in Season 1. (Just a side note, I’ve never seen Season 1.) This entire scene is so bizarre to me – LeeAnne denies saying it, but Cary freaks the fuck out on D’Andra, and tells her, “Fuck you for thinking I said that.” Why the hell is Cary so pissed at D’Andra for telling her something that LeeAnne had said? Cary says she never fat shamed Mark – and I honestly believed her (like I said, I didn’t watch the first season) and then we get a lovely clip of Cary telling us in S1 that Mark was a “total fixer upper” and that he was a “chubby plastic surgeon with man boobs.” For real? Can you imagine ever saying something like that about your husband? Yeah, me either. This honestly makes me see Cary in an entirely different light.

Andy asks LeeAnne if she ever said that to D’Andra, and she says no. Cary comes for D’Andra again and tells her that “she’s the dumb bitch that believed her” about L’s comment. (What is happening here?) I’m becoming increasingly annoyed with these three – I do believe that LeeAnne said that, and I also believe that Cary believes she said it as well, but she has it out for D for some reason. Kam is nodding in agreement.

We talk about Brandi & D’Andra’s unexpected reconciliation, which I love. D’Andra talks about how fun loving and light Brandi is, and I’m so pissed that the producers decide to take this moment to film the three girls on the other couch talking shit. So petty.

We’re back in Beaver Creek – this time to discuss Kam & Steph’s argument. Andy asks Kameron if she was sorry once she actually watched the scene back and realized that Steph never said what she thought she said. Kameron isn’t sorry, and just says that it was a misunderstanding. Steph stays true to herself and stands by the fact that she believes Kameron was making the moment all about her and that she was being selfish. I totally agree. Kameron still isn’t ready to let this go and begins to question Brandi again about why she didn’t tell anyone about Bruin. Then she actually comes for Stephanie, saying that she doesn’t think it’s okay to joke about having a surrogate. Kameron, what planet are you on? Steph made up a completely harmless lie on a whim because she was keeping Brandi’s secret. She was being a good friend, and she never joked about surrogacy. Everyone else agrees Kameron is totally is out of line and that Steph meant no harm and did nothing wrong.

Andy asks D’Andra what she thinks about the whole situation, and she says she thinks it’s none of Kameron’s business. Kameron uses this opportunity to say, “How can you say that when you’re always in LeeAnne’s business?” D’Andra claps back with, “That’s like the pot calling the kettle black and you’re very good at that Kameron.” Cary tells D’Andra not to “deflect” and I’m honestly just wondering when Cary got balls this season?

Stephanie’s segment has me super emotional. I have the chills rewatching her open up about her depression and suicide attempt. My heart hurts for her, but at the same time I’m amazed by her strength and courage and bravery. It takes guts to talk about mental health, and as someone who also struggles with depression, anxiety and takes antidepressants, I applaud her honesty. It’s not easy, but it’s so important to keep talking about these hard topics, because there is still such a huge stigma surrounding mental health in general. Everyone is very supportive of Stephanie, which makes me happy. She is so sweet, she deserves the best of everything – including friends.

LeeAnne is up next; we start off with her newfound love of mediation, her amygdala, and her & Rich’s relationship. Andy says he sees a change in LeeAnne, and she says that she meditates every morning and also sees two therapists. “You’ve never told me you see two therapists.” LeeAnne replies by telling D’Andra that they barely speak, so why would she have told her? (Which makes sense.) D’Andra says that they were speaking at the beginning of the season and she still didn’t share it. Cary butts in – “she just told me recently” and D’Andra gets pissed and tells Cary that she’s “talking to LeeAnne.” LeeAnne jumps down D’Andra’s throat for this and tells her not to be condescending to Cary. Cary says that D’Andra is being a bitch to her, but Brandi takes the heat off of D by interrupting and saying she doesn’t believe LeeAnne. She then confesses that Tiffany (as in Tiffany Hendra from S1) told Brandi that LeeAnne doesn’t see a therapist, and that it’s bullshit. LeeAnne doesn’t believe that Tiffany said that. Brandi tells her to tell them her therapists name – and at first I’m like, why wouldn’t she tell them? Then I thought about it a little more, and I realize that I wouldn’t share with the world the name of my therapist either. So I get it. It’s not really anyone’s business.

Andy reads another viewer comment – “Why aren’t you on medication instead of banging your bowl and blaming it on your amygdala?” LeeAnne says she “appreciates that she didn’t google it”, which D’Andra finds hilarious. LeeAnne snaps at D’Andra and calls her a bitch, and tells her to “shut the fuck up”, which I found extremely aggressive, seeing that D’Andra really hadn’t said anything. LeeAnne explains amygdala, and D’Andra speaks up, saying, “Last year it was PTSD, this year it’s amygdala, what’s it going to be next year?” Cary comes at D’Andra again and D has had enough. “Cary I’m sorry you haven’t had an opinion all year and now suddenly you have balls of steel!” D’Andra is on fire! πŸ”₯

Andy brings up the rumor that LeeAnne has spread about Mark last year (he gets his d sucked at the roundup, by other dudes) and asks Cary why she was so receptive to being friends with LeeAnne after she said that. Cary says she wasn’t, but she has forgiven her and she saw a change in her and she deserved grace. (I would never be able to befriend someone who said something like that about my husband. Maybe I’d make nice for the show, but genuine friends? Fuck no.) Cary suddenly clarifies the rumor – it was a disgruntled florist who said it (like wait, what?????) and Andy points out that LeeAnne is still the one who started the rumor. D’Andra is the only one who says exactly what I’m thinking – it’s fucking weird that these two are friends and that they’re having dinner together with their significant others. I’m sorry, there’s just no coming back from that rumor, in my opinion.

Cary calls D’Andra out and tells her that she hasn’t been a good friend. Kameron says that D’Andra texted her and was talking shit about Carys business, as well as Brandi’s clothing line, BrandiLand. Cary says she “disparaged her business publicly.” Kam gives Andy her phone so he can see the message. “It’s not really disparaging her business publicly if she’s sending this to you privately.” Cary tells D’Andra that she thought they were friends and that she’s hurt. D’Andra vehemently denies that she sent those messages, and she gives Andy her phone so he can go through the messages and see for himself that they’re not there. Andy looks and confirms that the texts are not in D’Andra’s phone. Kam says she could’ve deleted them, which Andy agrees with. D’Andra says she didn’t delete anything, and Andy says he’s not saying he believes it, but it’s possible. LeeAnne tells us that D’Andra has two phones, and she finally loses it. “I do not have two phones! You’re fucking delusional!” Kameron is still badgering D’Andra, telling her to admit that she sent the messages. Kam wants to call AT&T and I’m literally dying when Andy goes into full blown dad mode and is like “We are not calling AT&T right now.” 🀣

Andy turns his attention to Stephanie and asks her if she still thinks LeeAnne has truly changed. Steph said that at the beginning of the season she did, but towards the end she felt like LeeAnne was triggered and reverted back to her old ways. LeeAnne keeps saying that she was pushed. Which brings us to Brandi and LeeAnne’s Feud.

Andy brings up what happened at the finale, and he asks Brandi if she was trying to provoke LeeAnne. Brandi says no, she was genuinely pissed off. Andy then comments that LeeAnne was “hissing like a cobra” at Brandi, and LeeAnne says, “I was?”

Yes, you were. And it was scary AF. Andy comments that Brandi and LeeAnne seemed to start off on the right foot, and LeeAnne wants to know what set Brandi off.

This question alone sets Brandi off, and I don’t blame her. Andy explains that he thinks LeeAnne telling D’Andra to “be careful” about being her friend is what triggered it, and Brandi agrees. Stephanie thinks this all goes way deeper than that, that they had issues prior to that that they never fully got over.

Andy also brings up LeeAnne’s allegation of Brandi being an “alcoholic.” I’m so annoyed during this scene – LeeAnne, please fucking own it. It doesn’t matter if you said it once, you still said it and insinuated it all season. None of the girls think Brandi has a drinking problem, including LeeAnne. LeeAnne apologizes, but Brandi calls her out and says that she already apologized, and then she went and said that she’s not sophisticated enough to be an alcoholic, that she’s just a drunk. Andy asks LeeAnne what that means and she says she was just being a wise-ass. Steph sticks up for Brandi, saying that’s not okay that she said those things, and that she inferred that Brandi had a problem all season. Steph says it’s not fair because it puts a label on her that’s not true. Agreed. LeeAnne apologizes again, saying that she’s genuinely sorry. Sorry, but I don’t buy it.

LeeAnne’s conversation with Mama Dee gets brought up – and I don’t remember what D’Andra says right now, but LeeAnne bugs out and tells her to “go jump in a lake and drown.” Like what???? LeeAnne had said in her blog that she recorded her conversation with Mama Dee, but then she admits to everyone that she lied. Andy’s like, “So you lied in your blog?” And everyone agrees that’s fucked up. “I’m really good at-” LeeAnne starts, and Andy finishes with, “Lying?” He then says, “You’ve copped to a lot of lying this season.” To which LeeAnne responds, “I’ve picked it up from them”, referring to Brandi and D’Andra.

Part 1 is over, and my jaw is still on the floor. What did I just witness? I honestly wrote OMFG at the bottom of my notes when this was over. This was a lot to take in. Tell me all of your thoughts! Are you on anyone’s side? Or do you see all angles? Leave me a comment!

Until next week…..

RHOD: PARTY FOULS

I can’t believe the finale is here ya’ll!! What an epic ending to an epic season. I love these ladies and I’m truly going to miss seeing them on my TV every week.

We start off at Steph’s; she’s working with her assistant to get everything ready for Travis’s Frat Party, which she’s throwing for him in honor of him going to Harvard. Brandi arrives, and I really love watching the two of them together. They’re both so silly and have a lot of fun together, and when you’re constantly being bombarded with drama it’s nice to just see the normal! The girls are talking about Travis, and I love when Brandi says, “We can’t ever let him think he’s smarter than us.” LMAO. Trey is testing the foam pit outside, and we quickly learn that it works. “Let’s go jump in it!” Steph is so cute LOL. Brandi and Steph are a lot of fun.

LeeAnne & Rich are over at The Cathedral of Hope, where are they are planning on having their wedding. LeeAnne explains to us that it is a LGBTQ Church, and there is no judgement here. She says she’s always felt different, and here, she feels like she fits in. They meet with the priest (sorry if he’s not a priest….pastor?) and they chat for a bit. I really like how LeeAnne describes her relationship with Rich, I think it’s very sweet. She feels like they complete each other – when she is too much, he pulls her back in, and when he is distant she pulls him out. They compliment each other. Those aren’t her exact words, so don’t quote me. But it reminded me of the speech Cam says from Modern Family about himself & Mitchell’s relationship (The Dreamer & The Realist) and I love that. (If you have no idea what I’m talking about go google it, it’s so sweet.) LeeAnne & Rich pick a date – April 27, 2019! Bravo spin-off anyone!?

Watching Mama Dee turn over the company to D’Andra, with all of their friends, family and coworkers present, was truly something else. Mama Dee held an event in honor of it at Jalisco, and to say I’m happy for D’Andra is an understatement. She is now 100% owner of Ultimate Living and Hard Night Good Morning. Mama Dee telling her daughter that it was her time to shine just made my heart happy.

Watching D’Andra and Mama Dee share such a heartfelt moment is so nice to see. D’Andra expresses how she wishes the whole family was here – her grandmother and her father. She becomes emotional and tells her mom that she hopes she can be proud of her one day. Hearing Mama Dee respond by saying, “I’m proud of you today.”, was everything. Mama Dee has become more and more maternal as the weeks have gone by. She tells D’Andra that if she needs anything she just has to call her. I feel like you can see the joy in D’Andra’s face at her mother’s words – her relief is so palpable, and she’s so grateful. To watch them come full circle and be so open and loving to each other was wonderful. It made me emotional, honestly! My mom is my best friend. We have always been close, and the times when we disagree or are upset with one another truly puts me on edge. It’s a horrible feeling. I’m so happy that they are in a good place. ❀️

Kameron & LeeAnne meet up, and they’re shopping for the Frat Party. I’m pretty sure they pick out a funnel for a keg, but I think Kam called it a bong. LMAO, if I misheard that please let me know! It made me LOL. LeeAnne sees a cup that says No Bad Days and says that she needs it because she’s had nothing but bad days lately.

The girls sit down, and LeeAnne tells Kameron that she is already anticipating that it’s going to be an “Attack LeeAnne” Party. LeeAnne is clearly annoyed/upset that none of the other girls think that Brandi stole her phone. “Girl, I can see both sides.” – Sure Kam, whatever you say. That’s not what you told Cary. LeeAnne says she hasn’t talked to any of the girls and is worried about what Stephanie will think. She also mentions how she hasn’t spoken to D’Andra since her Fashion Show. Umm, maybe D’Andra hasn’t called you since the show because you weren’t very nice to her? Just a thought. LeeAnne is really hating on Brandi, and calling her stupid. Kameron is nodding in agreement like a puppet. LeeAnne expresses that “Calm LeeAnne” wants to stay home and bang the Tibetan bowl, and “Bitch LeeAnne” wants to come back to kick all of ya’lls asses. LeeAnne is already going into this with a negative mindset. I personally think she knows what she did was wrong (lying about cloning the phone), but she doesn’t care and doesn’t want to talk about it. Kam and LeeAnne agree that they will go to the party together if their husbands can’t make it, because Court might have another event that day and Rich may be out of town.

It’s the day of the party. How cute is Brandi in her cheerleading uniform!? From high school! Love it. You’re absolutely killing it girl. Everything looks great – love the “Travis Fucking Hollman” sign – is it made out of Solo Cups? We have beer pong, a foam pit, a keg – I’m transported back ten years during this episode and I love it. (Those were the days.)

The amount of Jell-O shots in Steph’s fridge is Party Goals. (And honestly, this whole scene is making me long for Summer! I want to throw a frat party and get drunk off of Jell-O shots!). Anyway, Brandi and Steph talk about PhoneGate, and Brandi is just done with LeeAnne. Brandi tells Steph that she got a voicemail a few days prior to the party from Kameron, telling Brandi that her phone wasn’t cloned and it was all a joke.

This scene with Kameron is annoying to me – she’s smirking while she leaves the message, and I do find it humorous that she’s totally fine with LeeAnne playing jokes on other people (that’s not actually a joke), but she’s offended by a dildo and a k-cup. I mean πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Steph wants Brandi to talk to Kam about the voicemail and get to the bottom of it. Both girls agree that Kameron has blind loyalty to LeeAnne, and she will never disagree with her. I really like when Steph says that just because you always agree with someone doesn’t make you a good friend, it makes you a good doormat. She also points out that she believes Kameron feels like LeeAnne is her safety net.

“I was always told not to go to Foam Parties because they’re really dirty and you can get diseases.” Ooookay Kameron. Despite Kam clearly annoying me, I will say, she pulled off a great Cher Horowitz. I will always give credit where credit is due – and this Clueless look is fabulous. I do think this scene is a little weird. LeeAnne comes over, and Kam tells her she isn’t ready and needs to wash her hair. (I agree with LeeAnne, why would you wash your hair to go to a foam party? Dry shampoo girl!) Kam insists she has to wash it, but she shows LeeAnne her Cher outfit first. LeeAnne loves it and wants to be “Twins”, so while Kam is washing her hair LeeAnne goes to the vintage store that Kameron bought the outfit from so they can match. When I saw the previews, I thought they chose beforehand to match. I’m not even sure why this is so weird to me, but it’s just not sitting well.

The girls are on their way to the party. D’Andra is with Jeremy, and they chat with Mama Dee on the phone for a little while. I really love Jeremy & D’Andra’s relationship – he’s so supportive, it’s very sweet.

Kameron and LeeAnne are coming together, and their conversations never seem to be about anything other than Brandi. I’m really over it, honestly. “We’re like the mean girls entering the party.” You said it, Kam. Kam goes on to say that they’re just going to be positive and they won’t let anyone say anything mean about them. LeeAnne immediately says, “I think I’m gonna lose my cool.” At this point I’m unsure why LeeAnne is even bothering to go to the party. She’s anticipating some kind of argument, so why bother? We learn in Kam’s confessional that she thinks D’Andra and Brandi have gotten away with way more than LeeAnne ever has behavior wise. Not only do I disagree with this statement, but I don’t even know what the fuck Kameron is talking about. What has Brandi or D’Andra done? Then, Kameron turns to LeeAnne and says, “Brandi never stops talking about being a cheerleader. I mean I love her but I think there’s more to her.” (One of them mentioned that Brandi was dressed as a cheerleader.). Keep stirring that pot, Kam. Get your friend all riled up right before you enter the party.

The party is in full swing. I’m literally LOLing at Steph when she sees Cary – “She bought Converse sneakers and thinks it’s a costume.” LMAO. Also really love seeing Callie-Roo running around, so random but so fitting! D’Andra shares her good news with Brandi, Steph & Cary and they’re all very happy for her, and share a nice moment. LeeAnne and Kameron have finally arrived, and I will say, I do think D’Andra is on point when she said that LeeAnne is up Kam’s ass.

Steph confronts LeeAnne immediately about PhoneGate/CloneGate, whatever the hell we are calling it (and still talking about!). LeeAnne tried to explain herself, but Steph clearly isn’t buying what LeeAnne is selling. Her face says it all. LeeAnne says she wanted Brandi to feel the torture she felt when she thought her phone was missing, and admits that what she did was “tit for tat.”

Meanwhile, Brandi is confronting Kameron about her voicemail. “Am I in trouble? Is my hair flat?” Cary’s eye roll at this question is the best. Kameron tells Brandi she doesn’t think that she took LeeAnne’s phone, but can understand why LeeAnne thinks that. Brandi is getting more and more pissed off, and tells Kameron to use her brain. Kameron isn’t happy after being told that, and she tells Brandi that when LeeAnne defends herself she takes it to the next level.

Steph and LeeAnne are still trying to clear things up, and LeeAnne admits to Steph that she never cloned Brandi’s phone, that it was a joke. Steph says, “No, it was a lie.” Which LeeAnne disagrees with. I was so proud of Steph here for holding her ground and not backing down from how she felt.

D’Andra joins Brandi and Kamerons convo, and Brandi is just telling Kameron that the reason she is done with LeeAnne is because she always takes it to the next level. I’m not sure what D says/does, but Kam looks over at her and says, “I’m getting the impression D’Andra that you’re done with her too?” D’Andra’s answer was classy and perfect. “I’m done with the lying. I’ve had it up to here.”

Stephanie isn’t getting through to LeeAnne like she had hoped she would, so she really thinks that she should talk with Brandi. (Steph has the best intentions, but I see “Bad Idea” written all over this.)

They start talking, and Brandi tells LeeAnne she never stole her phone. LeeAnne doesn’t believe her. Cary chimes in and says that they both don’t trust each other. Brandi says that she doesn’t lie, and LeeAnne says she doesn’t lie either. This pisses Brandi off, because LeeAnne did lie about cloning the phone. This, for some reason, prompts LeeAnne to bring up Brandi calling her “The Wicked Witch of the West.”, to which Brandi simply replies, “I never said West.” LeeAnne says she still called her a witch/bitch something, and that’s when Brandi becomes even more annoyed. “LeeAnne, you called me an alcoholic.”

LeeAnne says she never called her an alcoholic. (This is just ridiculous, we all heard and saw it.) Cary finally steps in and is like, “I’m pretty sure you called her an alcoholic, and if you didn’t use those words you inferred it.” LeeAnne says that’s totally different, and Cary disagrees. (As do I.)

D’Andra brings up how LeeAnne told Mama Dee that she was an alcoholic, to which LeeAnne replies with, “No I said I thought you were drinking a lot.” D’Andra tells us this is not what Mama Dee said, and LeeAnne says she will take it up with Mama Dee then.

This conversation is pushing Brandi to her breaking point. She asks LeeAnne why she thinks she can just go around saying things like that, and tells LeeAnne that she thinks that she’s better than all of them.

Brandi gets in LeeAnne’s face, and LeeAnne does put her hands on Brandi. Brandi steps back saying, “Hey, who touched who!?”

Brandi is completely bullshit at this point and tells LeeAnne, “I’ve been friends with Travis Hollman for 20 years, get the fuck out!” And this is when things turn….scary? I don’t even know what word to use.

LeeAnne completely loses her shit, and I’m sorry, she literally looked possessed when she was coming for Brandi in that moment. Steph is holding Brandi back, and Cary is trying to get LeeAnne away from her and talk her off the ledge. I feel like LeeAnne didn’t even hear Cary at one point -it was like a demon overtook her body. (I’m not being a sarcastic bitch, she seriously looked out of it.) The girl’s finally separate, and I am so annoyed that when Cary is telling LeeAnne to stop it, all she is worried about is that Cary isn’t telling Brandi to stop, too. “What about her!?” Stop worrying about everyone else and worry about yourself and your actions.

LeeAnne sits at a table by herself, talking to herself about how ridiculous Brandi is, crying to make herself seem like the victim. Cary and LeeAnne join her, and I’m becoming frustrated with Cary. She thinks Brandi provoked LeeAnne, and obviously Kameron agrees. LeeAnne is on the ground at one point crying that she’s alone, and am I seeing things or did Cary dump her drink out on her? Wtf is going on right now?

Steph is taking to D’Andra and Brandi, and she tells them she feels like she should go over to the table with the other girls, in support of Brandi. I didn’t understand this scene – maybe I missed something. Brandi tells us in her confessional that Steph feels caught in the middle because it’s her party, but Brandi doesn’t think she should feel that way because she’s her best friend. I didn’t get the vibe that Steph felt in the middle, she clearly had Brandi’s back during the entire altercation.

Steph does go over, and LeeAnne apologizes to her and tells her she will leave if she wants her to, and Steph says she absolutely does not have to leave.

Brandi and D’Andra are still talking, and D’Andra mentions LeeAnne’s “personality change” and how it was scary. I agree. We all saw it, and it really was frightening. Not even in a way like, “OMG, I’m scared of LeeAnne!” More like it’s concern for hey mental state and well being. We also learn from D’Andra that at this point in her life she doesn’t want to be around LeeAnne’s darkness, but enjoys being around Brandi and her lightheartedness and fun personality.

D’Andra and Brandi go off to do a keg stand, and Steph, Cary, LeeAnne and Kameron go in the foam pit.

I can’t believe we are the end of Season 3! Steph tells us that she feels empowered this season. She says life isn’t about loyalty, it’s about being real. She just wants to be authentic, and I think she did an amazing job of that this season. Steph has definitely come into her own and has found her own voice.

I’m not going to get into all of the little blurbs they tell us at the end about the girls and where they are now, because I know we will touch on that in the reunion next week. But I will say that seeing that Bruin is now legally a Redmond truly made my night! Yay Brandi! I am beyond happy for you and your family. That’s the most amazing news ever.

So sad to say farewell to Season 3, but I’m sure our favorite ladies will be back in Season 4, ready to go. I’ll be blogging about the reunion, so I’ll see you all next week! Oh, and if you’re a Vanderpump Rules fan, it’s back on December 3rd, and I would love for you to check out my recaps and thoughts!

Cheers to a crazy season!
