RHOP: THE WAY THE COOKIE CRUMBLES

Before we start – I have to start off by saying – DO NOT SLEEP ON POTOMAC! You guys, this show is so damn good.  I honestly forgot how much I loved it.

We start off following all of the ladies around Potomac.  (Side note: Pregnant Monique is the absolute cutest.)  We learn that we have one week until Candiace’s wedding.

GIZELLE AND HER GIRLS

We’re at Gizelle’s house with her and her girls.  (Her girls kill me, they are too funny.  “Mom, your pants are so ugly!” Lmao.)  We learn that Gizelle has given Sherman another chance, which I’m happy about.  The girls loved him, and I liked them together, too.  Gizelle is making cookies, which she plans on bringing over to Karen.  Gizelle and Karen are still not in a good place – we saw the demise of their friendship last year, which I think ha a lot to do with the fact that Gizelle really was not a good friend to Karen.  And I’m saying that as a person who freaking loves Gizelle.  Karen wasn’t innocent by any means – she was literally lying about the dumbest shit left and right.  But I think Gizelle went too far with some of her “jokes”, as she calls them.  Her girls are funny though – they ask Gizelle if she was mean to Karen, and if that’s why she’s baking her cookies.  Gizelle says Karen didn’t care for some of her jokes, and her girls are like, “Well, maybe you shouldn’t say it, then.”  Those girls are wise beyond their years.

ASHLEY AND MICHAEL

We learn that Ashley miscarried after the season last year, which is so sad and so horrible, and my heart goes out to her for that.  I just really cannot stand Michael, so it’s hard for me to watch any scene with him in it.  Especially when Ashley tells us she’s actively trying to get pregnant, and they want to “put a little Joey in this pouch.”  Did you have to word it like that?  This whole scene is skeevy to me.  And I feel bad saying that, because Ashley deserves to be happy, and if she wants to have a baby, I want that for her, too.  But Michael is just….disgusting.  I’m sorry that I’m not sorry.  I can’t even get into the weird shit they’re doing, because my poor eyes can’t un-see that.  But when Ashley is asking Michael if she’s doing better, and if he sees a change in her, I’m so confused.  Why did Ashley need to change?  What’s so special about Michael?  I can’t figure out what she sees in him.  Dollar signs?  Basically Ashley is telling us that her and Michael are doing so well – and then our shady Bravo editors give us a “2 Months Later” screen and we see that Michael has been charged with sexual assault.  (This season is going to be an absolute shitshow.)

CAND AND CHRIS

Candiace is visiting Chris at his restaurant, and they’re chatting about their upcoming wedding.  Candiace has a million things on her mind related to the wedding, but one thing is bothering her the most – her half brother.  We learn that Candiace has a half brother – her father had a “tryst” before she married her mother, and had a child, Michael.  Candiace’s mother, Dorothy, knew about this, and still married Candiace’s father anyway and had Candiace.  Candiace wants to invite Michael to her wedding, but her mother is dead against it.  As someone who’s currently planning a wedding, I understand where Candiace is coming from, because you don’t want to upset people, especially your mother.  I think Candiace should just invite Michael regardless.  However, Candiace’s mother is contributing over $100 grand for this wedding, so yeah, she gets a say.  If you don’t want anyone to have a say – don’t take their money! It’s simple.  I can’t relate to that craziness, that’s just over the top and unnecessary.

K HUGER

We’re over at Karen’s now, where she’s hanging out with her assistant, Matt.  (I’m loving Karen’s platinum hair – looks absolutely gorgeous.)

GIZELLE PHONE

KAREN PHONE

Gizelle calls Karen, and tells her she’s in her neck of the woods.  Karen tells her she’s not ready to see her – her family is still grieving.  Karen tells us that she wants all of the girls to own up to all of the shit they did to her last year, Gizelle included.  Gizelle respects Karen’s decision, and they hang up.

GIZELLE PHONE 2

K AND MATT 2

 

I’m LOLing – Karen starts to tell Matt that Gizelle was the one who called, and wanted to come over, when her phone starts ringing again and it’s Gizelle, again.  Gizelle tells her she understands she’s not ready to see her, but her girls did make her cookies and she would really like to bring them to her.  Karen tells her that Matt will come out and get the cookies, and Gizelle’s like, “No, I don’t want to see Matt.” (Lmfao, Matt is so offended.)  Karen finally agrees to let Gizelle drop the cookies off.  They barely speak, but I think we’re making progress!

Side note: I do not like Matt. Karen, he’s not real friend, girl.  He’s totally giving me Cedric vibes from RHOBH S1.  And look what Cedric did to LVP – royally screwed her over.  Matt is thirsty AF and wants to be on television.  Do. Not. Trust. Him.

MONIQUE

We’re at Monique’s, and she is so cute pregnant – and hilarious.  I’m dying watching her with her children, they’re too funny.  I also really love her relationship with her husband, Chris.  Monique and Chris are talking, and Chris tells Monique she owes Gizelle an apology.  I honestly don’t remember this, but apparently Monique put Sherman on blast last year?  Chris is annoyed because it made things awkward between himself and Sherman, and they go to the same gym.  (Lmao.)  Monique agrees that she owes them both an apology, and she only did it to be spiteful to Gizelle.  (I need to go back and rewatch this, because I’m blanking on all of this.)  We also learn that Monique has stayed close with Karen and Candiace – not so much the other girls.

ROBYN

Robyn and Juan have been doing really good.  They’re currently at a couples massage, and have vowed to be more romantic together.  I mean, I think it’s nice?  Maybe they can grow as a couple and be more serious?

We are now four days away from Candiace’s wedding, FYI.

KAREN AND CANDIACE

Karen is over at Candiace’s, and Candiace shares with her the news about her half brother.  She has invited him to the wedding – she just hasn’t told her mother yet.  Candiace doesn’t want her mom to hate her – but I think it’s more than that.   I think Candiace is worried about being cut of financially from her mother, which is honestly ridiculous. Karen thinks Candiace carries around too much of her mother’s baggage.  I understand Candiace wants to please her mother, but this is a lot.

Three days until the wedding.

CANDIACE

Candiace is with her mother, making her breakfast.  According to Candiace, Dorothy is very “critical and opinionated” and Candiace is petrified to tell her that she’s invited her half brother to the wedding.  She finally works up the courage; and her worst fears are confirmed.  I’m sorry – Dorothy is a fucking monster.  She’s toxic AF.  “This is bullshit, bullshit, bullshit!” Dorothy exclaims.  Candiace is getting worked up – she’s like, “It’s not Michael’s fault!” which is entirely true.  Her Mother isn’t having it – she’s beyond pissed, and tells Candiace, “You just made a big mistake.”  Candiace reminds her that it’s her wedding day, not Dorothy’s.  Dorothy is embarrassed and Candiace can’t wrap her head around that, either.  “Everyone knows Dad had another child!” Also true.  There is literally no reasoning with Dorothy right now, so Candiace leaves the room, crying.  “Those crocodile tears don’t mean anything,” Dorothy tells her.  Christ, she’s brutal!

Next week is the wedding, and I’m so excited.  Not bad for a first episode, huh?

Until next week….

xo

RHOBH: DO YOU REALLY WANT TO HURT ME?

Another week, more drama here in Beverly Hills. I didn’t blog last weeks episode, but I did watch it & I took notes. Life just got too crazy. I’m sure everyone’s already caught up, but if not, we learn that LVP didn’t show up to Camille’s Bridal Shower, and then she claimed she wasn’t invited, which was not true – Kyle has the receipts to prove it. We also learn that Camille literally compares herself to Brett Kavanaugh and has zero compassion for women, while Lois (Lisa Rinna’s badass 90 year old mother) was almost murdered by the Trailside Killer. It was intense.

This week, we start out with Kyle & Teddi, and their daughters, Portia & Slate. They’re going to Petite & Pretty (I have no idea what this is?) to do a photo shoot? Kyle and Teddi are chatting while Portia and Slate are getting their makeup done. Oh, I forgot to mention, Camille asked Kyle to be a bridesmaid last episode, and she said yes. Kyle gets a text from Camille, and it’s a picture of the bridesmaid dress – a pretty, navy, capped sleeve dress. Kyle’s not happy – “A cap sleeve is not my friend.” (I hear that, Kyle. 😂) They also talk about how Teddi has an RV, and the girls plan on going camping soon.

Over at Rinna’s, she’s FaceTiming with Erika, who’s on tour. She fills her in on LVP no showing to Camille’s Shower (EJ couldn’t make it because of the tour) and Erika replies, “The saga continues.”

Denise & Aaron are at the gym. (I love these two.) Denise fills Aaron in on how she plans on having lunch with LVP. She thinks a lot of miscommunication is going on, and she’s unsure if she should get involved or just stay the fuck out of it.

Dorit is at Kyle’s, and they’re talking about how they are planning on going to see Boy George at The Greek the following night. Kyle asks Dorit if she invited Lisa – she didn’t. Dorit feels like she should give Lisa space, since she clearly doesn’t want to talk to her right now. I mean, I get it. I wouldn’t have invited her either.

Meanwhile, LVP and Denise are having lunch together at Villa Blanca. Denise tells Lisa that the girls really do care about her, and Lisa says that her feelings are really hurt.

They cut back over to Kyle and Dorit – Kyle says that Denise was going to have lunch with LVP. Dorit thinks maybe Denise would be a good mediator, since she went through a lot of stuff with Charlie Sheen. “Did you just compare Lisa Vanderpump to Charlie Sheen?” Kyle asks. Then she adds,”They are both Virgos.”

Denise is trying to get Lisa to see her POV – she brings up what she went through when she was divorcing Charlie, and how she could’ve chosen to retreat but didn’t. LVP doesn’t want to hear it. “I can’t explain why I’ve chosen to retreat,” LVP tells Denise. Denise thinks it’s weird – if LVP didn’t do these things she’s being accused of, wouldn’t she want to repair the relationships and defend herself?

Kyle tells Dorit that friends call each other out. She says that Lisa always makes herself the victim and bolts whenever she hears something she doesn’t like.

Denise is still trying with LVP – she tells her, “Those women still love you.” LVP isn’t buying it. Denise extends an olive branch and invites LVP on the RV trip the girls are going on, but she declines.

It’s the night of The Boy George concert. This is the first time Camille has seen the ladies since the Kavanaugh argument. Camille feels as though Lisa Rinna was “extremely unfair” to her at dinner, but life is too short to hold a grudge.

Dorit learns that PK has talked to Ken, and they have plans to get lunch. PK doesn’t want to get into it all at the concert, so they drop it.

Teddi tells the girls she did reach out to LVP – she basically said that she knows that they’re not going to see eye to eye, but she wants them to just be able to move on and she wishes her well. She didn’t get a reply.

They briefly talk about LVP saying she wasn’t invited to Camille’s shower – and Camille pretending that she didn’t know Kyle did in fact invite her. Camille owns it, but Kyle is annoyed because she feels like Camille plays both sides of the fence.

The Ladies go backstage, and they get to meet Billy Idol, which Rinna is super excited about.

The girls (minus Denise – she had a family night at home with the girls and Aaron) all seem to be getting along and having fun at the concert. “Everybody’s getting along so well,” Camille observes. Lisa Rinna asks, “When’s the shoe gonna drop Camille?” Foreshadowing at its finest.

The concert is over, and everyone is hanging out backstage. Boy George is talking about how he called out someone in the audience for being on their phone, and Kyle says something along the lines of “I would be too scared to do that, people could kill you”, or something like that. PK chimes in, “You can’t even get on with your best friend, Kyle, so you could have issues.” Like wait, what?

Kyle is livid, and I honestly don’t blame her. PK’s comment is so random and completely caught me off guard. He seems totally annoyed with Kyle, which is odd. What would he be mad at Kyle about?

“PK, you’re in the same boat as me,” Kyle snaps back.

“Its a joke,” PK replies, with absolutely no sense of humor whatsoever.

Kyle says it’s not funny, and PK says it’s “British Humor” which honestly infuriates me.

“Kenny’s speaking to me,” PK also adds, which just sounds like he’s trying to irk Kyle.

“I’ve been defending you,” Kyle says. It sounds like she wants to add “because of the dog drama” but doesn’t. “I didn’t put you in this position, so when you say that, it’s an insult.” I totally agree with that.

Dorit is trying to defend PK but also have Kyle’s back, which isn’t working.

“You’re in the same boat as me,” Kyle repeats, annoyed. “I hate to burst your fucking bubble.”

PK isn’t backing down. “I’m not quite in the same boat as you.”

Lisa Rinna is finally like, “Let’s go.”

Kyle’s pissed, and Dorit is mad at PK. “I don’t care if it’s a joke, if you hurt someone’s feelings you say sorry.” PK literally doesn’t care at all, and refuses to talk about it any further.

The ladies all agree PK was a dick.

“Good luck trying to have sex with your wife tonight,” Kyle says as she stomps away. (Really Kyle? Good one. 🙄)

The ladies are now outside, getting ready to leave and hanging out outside the bus that brought them to the concert. Rinna thinks PK is trying to stir the pot. “One shit stirrer can call out another shit stirrer.” Lmao.

Kyle’s furious – but I can’t lie, I’m literally shocked when she says, “It’s all based on you and your wife giving up the fucking dog.”

Dorit comes out, and she tells Kyle that PK is comfortable with her, and that’s why he said what he said. (That makes no sense.)

Teddi chimes in, and Dorit literally loses her shit. She snaps at her that she just wants to have a conversation with Kyle for 30 seconds.

“The way that she just spoke to me is so inappropriate,” Teddi tells Kyle. Kyle tells her not to get upset, because it’s clear that she’s about to.

Camille, who never gets along with Dorit, is suddenly on her side, and tells us in a confessional that Teddi butts in too much and is a “know it all”. Really Camille? WTF?

Kyle tells Dorit that her fight with LVP is because of her and PK, which Dorit doesn’t want to hear. She says it’s about Kyle’s own personal experiences with LVP. “You’re wrong, Dorit,” Kyle says. “If I didn’t know the two of you, I would’ve defended her blindly like she wants me too.”

I get what Kyle is saying in a sense – she has stuck up for Dorit, which did cause a rift in her friendship with LVP. However, to blame it all on Dorit is kind of bullshit. You keep saying you need to be honest and tell the truth, so that’s what you’re doing, right Kyle? So it’s not really fair to blame Dorit for the fight.

We end the episode with Kyle saying, “Fuck you, PK. And that’s British humor.”

Thoughts on this week? I’m having a hard time putting my own thoughts into words, because I feel like I see everyone’s side. Something about Kyle is rubbing me the wrong way right now though. I can’t put my finger on it, but if I do, I’ll let you guys know.

Until next week…..

RHONY: SHARK BAIT

img_7818

We start off with Dale & Tinsley – they’re going to Sobel, so Tinsley can get Botox for her TMJ. Tinsley tells us about the “Strut Your Mutt” Event, which is a fashion show for dogs that she’s hosting.  It raises awareness for animal rescue/adoption, and I think it’s a super cute idea.  (Also, I really want Botox.  Just throwing that out there, LOL.)

Sonja & Ramona are going for a walk, and they’re just chatting about everything. Ramona fills Sonja in on her blind date, and I’m dying.  “Well he speaks three languages and is very worldly,” Ramona tells Sonja.  “So he’s not good looking?” Sonja asks.  LMAO.  Ramona tells Sonja she wasn’t interested, and that she’ll admit she’s “into hot sex”.  Sonja calls Ramona the “Date Monster” – these ladies literally kill me.  They talk about Dorinda and Luann’s lunch, and they’re both happy that they seem like they’re in a good place.  They both also feel as though Dorin is in a very good place.  We learn that they’re all going to the Berkshires (@ Dorinda’s), and the Berkshire Flashbacks are giving me life.

img_7809

Over at Bethenny’s, she’s packing – she’s going to visit the guy she’s been seeing/dating in Boston. She also has a grief counselor coming over.  She doesn’t want to transfer her grief from Dennis to her new relationship.

img_7814

Honestly, this scene with Bethenny and the Grief Counselor broke my heart. Anyone who is questioning the timeline between the new guy and Dennis, I want to tell them to just shut the fuck up.  I’m pretty sure this therapy session literally explains it all.  We learn that a week before Dennis passed,  Bethenny had wanted out of the relationship.  She said that their relationship wasn’t healthy.  Yes, she loved him, but it wasn’t working.  Dennis told Bethenny he didn’t want to be in another relationship if he couldn’t be with her.  She’s carrying around guilt because of this.  When they talk about the fact that Dennis overdosed – how it’s so sudden, and how it is different than if someone dies of cancer, because it’s unexpected; one minute they’re here, and the next minute they’re gone – it truly hit very close to home for me.  I have the chills watching this – I’m sending Bethenny all of the love and prayers.  I pray for happiness for her.  I liked when the counselor told her “there is no road map for grief”, because he is absolutely right.  Regardless if Bethenny and Dennis were together or not at the time of his passing, at the end of the day, he was her person.  And my heart literally broke for her.

img_7808

img_7816

It’s the day of the Strut Your Mutt event. Dorinda is first to arrive – we learn that she’s going to walk down the runway with Matilda, a cute little dog who’s 10 and has yet to be adopted.  We also learn that Dorinda’s dog, Lucy, recently passed.  She was fifteen.  When Dorinda tells us about the dream she had – she said it was so vivid and Richard was sitting on the couch, and she saw Lucy’s face, and felt like “She’s home.” (I’m crying right now TBH.)

img_7820

All of the girls are arriving. (Anyone notice Ramona totally pretend not to notice Dale? LMAO. )  The girls are all chatting, and Dorinda tell Lu she’s so happy that she’s coming to the Berkshires.  “I’m coming for my house upstate,” Lu responds haughtily.  Jesus Luann, can you not be a bitch for like 30 seconds?  Why is she so bitter?  Despite the fact that Dorinda and Barbara had an argument, Dorinda did still extend an invite to her.  Lu tells us that Barbara filled her in on her fight with Dorinda, and this is so annoying to watch.  Barbara, you’re such a shit stirrer.  Dorinda tells the girls she got a naked chef (mostly for Sonja, LMAO) and then I’m literally dead when Lu is like, “Can we get a yoga instructor?”  Dorinda agrees that she can, and I’m just like….WTF?

The dogs are all ready to take the runway, and I’m dying when Tinsley’s assistant, or whoever that girl is who is helping out with the fashion show turns to Tinsley and says, “Your mom wanted me to tell you you need lipgloss.” LMAO Dale, back off.

LMAO.png

Ramona thinks she’s ready to walk the runway this time around – and I’m crying laughing at the 2009 Runway Ramona flashback. OMG! Her bug eyes are everything.

img_7806

The Fashion Show goes very well, and it’s really cute. Sonja walks down with her dog, Marley; Dorinda walks down with Matilda; Ramona walks with her dog, Coco; and Dale walks down with Tinsley’s dog, Bambi.

img_7813

All of the girls are going out on a boat for the day except for Dorinda; she’s going to the Berkshires early so she can decorate. (Dorinda’s so cute!)  I think the owner of the boat was a friend of Ramona’s, and they’re just going out for the day.  Lu is being awful.  She freaks out over a glass of wine being in front of her.  (I mean, I get it, she’s a recovering alcoholic.  I just feel like she’s exaggerating everything right now.)  The girls basically interrogate Tinsley and her relationship with Scott – I think they mean well, but can we just leave Tinsley alone?  I did like that Bethenny really talked Tinsley up – I would never guess in a million years that Tinsley has body issues.  She’s so gorgeous, and she has such a great body! That was shocking to me.  But I thought it was super sweet of Bethenny to boost her confidence like that.

 

We’re in the Berkshires! I’ve never met Dorinda’s sister, Melinda, before this episode. (We do see a flashback of when Melinda was Santa one year, LOL.)  I knew that Dorinda had a home in Great Barrington, MA, but I had no idea she grew up there!  Great Barrington is at least a few hours from me, but we’re in the same state! I was fascinated by this LMAO.

Dorinda went all out decorating, and I love it. (I’m a huge Halloween fan myself, it’s my favorite time of the year.)  Tinsley, Ramona and Sonja are the first to arrive.  They’re all freaking out over the decorations, and Ramona points to skeleton like creature crying in the fetal position and says, “It looks like Bethenny crying!” LMFAO, Ramona. I can’t.

They’re all discussing the room situation inside the house, and Ramona picks up a sign that says “Good Vibes Only” and is literally putting it in everyone’s face and telling them that’s the theme for the weekend. (Ramona is so much work LMAO.) Dorinda promised Bethenny Hannah’s room; apparently that’s the best room.  Dorinda is giving that room to Bethenny because she has been going through a hard time and she wants her to be comfortable.  Dorinda plans on giving Lu the Moroccan Room, but Tinsley doesn’t want the Fish Room, so she’s like, “Fine, you can have the Moroccan Room and Lu can have the Fish Room.” (HONESTLY WHY DOES THIS MATTER!?)

The girls head out to The Wheatleigh Hotel for Dinner, and Lu meets them there. I die a little bit again when Lu asks Dorinda if she can get her a masseuse.  Luann, this is NOT a hotel.  Like what?  Dorinda agrees; she’s truly going above and beyond to accommodate Lu and make her happy.  The girls ask Dorinda what’s going on with Barbara, and she says that they’re fine.   Dorinda gets up to go to the bathroom, and when she’s gone, the room situation comes up once more.  “If I’m in the Fish Room I’m going to freak out,” Luann tells the group, to which Ramona and Sonja completely lose their shit and think this is the funniest thing ever. Dorinda comes back, and Lu immediately is like, “Why am I in the Fish Room?” Dorinda’s like, “I didn’t know you didn’t like the Fish Room.”  Luann goes off, and she’s pissed that Bethenny gets Hannah’s room – she thinks that Dorinda should’ve specifically given that room to her.  Tinsley speaks up, and is like, “She was going to give you the Moroccan Room because I didn’t want the Fish Room!” But this doesn’t placate Lu, she still thinks Dorinda should’ve given her the best room.

I am literally DEAD. I cannot get over the entitlement Lu feels like she has.  Luann, you sound like a spoiled little bitch.  Are you kidding me?  Honestly, Dorinda truly handled herself perfectly, because I would’ve lost my shit and told Lu to just leave.  The entire situation is beyond rude.  I couldn’t even imagine ever acting that way while being invited to stay at a friends home.  No class, no manners!

What’d you guys think? Do you think Luann should have the best room, or just be grateful that she has a room at all?

Until next week…..

RHOBH: BAHAMA DRAMA

We’re back in the Bahamas, and we’re still talking about Puppy Gate.

Teddi feels manipulated, and Lisa is growing annoyed with Dorit. She feels like she’s gone out of her way to avoid talking about the dog, yet Dorit is siding with all of the girls over her.

The Girls all meet up in the morning. They’re having frozen drinks (that I’m honestly jealous of 😂) before they all go off and do their own things for the day. Dorit, Rinna, Denise & Camille are going out on a boat and plan on snorkeling. Kyle and LVP are going to go shopping, and Erika & Teddi are going golfing together.

I’m loving Erika & Teddi getting along. Teddi is terrible at golf, but they’re having fun together.

On the boat, the girls are talking about the night before and Puppy Gate. Rinna asks Dorit how she’s feeling, and she replies, “Like I’ve been run over by a truck.” Denise joins in on the conversation and says that she is confused by the situation and doesn’t know the whole story. Dorit re-explains it, and Camille chimes in, saying she believes Lisa Vanderpump is upset because Dorit told her she gave the dog away after she did it. Dorit is adamant that LVP was not upset about that, but Camille is insistent that it’s a possibility.

This entire story is so sketchy. There is something more to it that we, the viewers, aren’t getting. Dorit is vague with her answer, and continues to be in real time about the million dollar question – why didn’t she give Lucy back to Vanderpump Dogs? Why didn’t she tell Lisa she was going to give Lucy to another family before she did it? We honestly may never know.

LVP & Kyle are shopping at the Tropic of Luxury Boutique. Kyle keeps trying to bring up the conversation that happened the night before, but LVP keeps dismissing her attempts.

Meanwhile, Teddi is filling Erika in on everything. Erika tells Teddi, “This feels like a well orchestrated plan to pit two women against each other.”

Teddi tells Erika that the staff at Vanderpump Dogs told her about Lucy – and that she knows with 100% certainty that Lisa is the one who told them to tell her. Teddi also states that she has proof, but she doesn’t want to have to go there, and Erika tells her that she may have to. Unfortunately, Erika is right.

The girls on the boat are now snorkeling, and they’re disappointed because there is nothing to see in the ocean.

Kyle & LVP have lunch after shopping, and Kyle brings up last night again. She tells Lisa that Teddi feels “set up”, but Lisa adamantly denies that.

Back over on the golf course, Teddi tells Erika that she just wants LVP to own the fact that she orchestrated this. Erika is in total agreement with Teddi and I have to say, I’m super excited about this new friendship that is forming between them.

At the hotel, we catch LVP on the phone, and she’s calling John Sessa. She tells us that she feels John Sessa was out of order, but Sessa is pissed off at being called out. He tells Lisa that he’s her partner, not her employee. To be honest – this scene seemed super staged to me. I don’t believe John Sessa would speak to LVP like that, period.

Total side note: I’m LOVING Rinna & Kris Jenner in this super random clip/ad for Captain Marvel. I am dead. 😂💀

Later that night, the girls are all getting ready to go to dinner together. LVP calls Teddi and asks her if she wants to meet up, so they can clear the air. Teddi agrees to come over.

Teddi calls her out – “You gave direct instructions to tell me.” LVP says that she didn’t. They’re both talking in circles, and I think Teddi is beginning to realize she’s not going to get what she wants out of this conversation with Lisa. Lisa tells her, “I want to clear this up with you.” To which Teddi retorts, “Then say you’re sorry that you put me in this situation.”

“I’m sorry you’re in this situation, but I did not tell my employees to tell you.”

Teddi whips her phone out so fast, and shows Lisa the text between herself and John Blizzard, where Teddi asks if Lisa told him to tell her, and Blizzard replies with a YES. LVP isn’t phased by this – she says she doesn’t even talk to John Blizzard.

Teddi is fuming at this point, and she gets up to find Dorit so she can tell her what’s going on. LVP is clearly shocked.

Teddi fills in Dorit, and then she turns to LVP. “You’re not confused in this situation.” She ends up storming out of Lisa & Dorit’s suite.

Dorit feels torn. LVP tells her exactly what was said, and Dorit asks, “Is it true?” LVP says it’s not true, and Dorit asks again. She says that if it’s true, she just wants Lisa to say it now. LVP says John Blizzard is just making stuff up and basically being a busy body. Dorit doesn’t know what to believe.

Dinner is awkward and uncomfortable. Everyone is trying to make forced small talk, and it’s obvious.

Rinna proposes a toast to Dorit for inviting them on such a lovely vacation. Dorit toasts with the group, however, she says that she’s had some “unpleasant moments” – referencing herself and LVP. Camille is playing peacemaker and says, “Well, hopefully you guys can work that out.” Lisa and Dorit just stare at each other.

Teddi tells us that she had a good day, but admits that the end of her day sucked. She tells us that she can be cordial but she’s not going to sugarcoat it and have small talk and pretend like everything is hunky dory because she’s not a fucking fake.

Dorit admits that she’s bothered too, and believes Teddi 100%.

LVP is literally livid watching this play out. She tells us in her confessional that Dorit stands for nothing. “Have some loyalty to your friend to that’s had your back for two years.” She goes on to say, “With friends like these….well, I think you know the rest.”

Rinna is loving every second of this, and I’m literally dying when she exclaims dramatically, “Why is this happening to Teddi Mellencamp!?” Lmaoooo. Legit dead.

Lisa has had enough. She gets up to leave, and the group acts so shocked by this. Lisa says that no one has acknowledged her all night, and she has an early flight, and she’s going back to her room. Dorit asks her not to leave, but she goes anyway. Kyle chases after her.

Dorit tells us that she would really like to believe LVP and have everything be normal, but she has to be true to herself. She needs a few moments to process it.

Kyle stops Lisa, and Lisa says that Teddi has known her for 5 minutes and is making her out to be some bitch. She tells Kyle, “You’ve known me a long time.” Kyle says that has nothing to do with it.

Back at the table, Rinna tells us she has empathy for Teddi because she’s been in her position before, and we get a flashback to 2015 when a similar situation occurred. (I completely forgot about this!!) I don’t remember the whole situation, but I do remember that Rinna felt set up by LVP, but LVP denied it.

Kyle returns, and it’s clear that she’s just as suspicious as the rest of the group, but being the closest one to LVP, she’s feeling caught in the middle. Teddi states that she is an honest person, and then she shows the group her proof, the text on her phone. Everyone is in an uproar because of this. (LOL @ Rinna – “BOOM!”) Rinna then tells Kyle that she needs to pipe in and tell Teddi that LVP doesn’t always tell the truth. Kyle hesitantly says, “I’m in a really bad position.”

The girls basically all come for Kyle, and she’s not having it. “I’m not responsible for Lisa Vanderpump’s actions!”

The group is all riled up at this point, and they’re basically all talking at once. Kyle pretty much says that everyone has good sides and bad sides, and “That’s a bad fucking side she has and she will never admit it.”

Camille, still the peacemaker of the group, feels like all the girls have been catty at one point or another, so they just need to move forward in their friendships because life’s too short to hold grudges.

Denise tells us, “My Spidey Senses tell me it’s not good to get on LVP’s bad side.” She’s not wrong.

In the hotel room, Lisa is trying to call Ken, but her call keeps failing. It’s hard not to feel some sort of sympathy for her in this scene, no matter what your thoughts are on the Puppy Gate Scandal.

The next morning, Kyle & Lisa are out super early. Kyle tells us that the rest of the group went out last night, and up until two hours ago she was taking shots. We see a clip of the girls all partying and having fun at a club. LVP wants to talk about the dinner the night before, and Kyle tells us, “I’ve slept two hours, I can’t hear about Lucy Goosey whatever that dogs name is.”

The rest of the group slept in, and they all meet up at Dorit’s suite for breakfast.

I love Denise – “These girls even dress up for breakfast, they’re lucky I put a bra on.” 😂😂 Her authenticity is so refreshing. Love her.

The girls discuss the events of the night before, and LVP. Dorit tells us that she wants ownership from LVP & an apology from her. (Good luck with that.)

Back in Beverly Hills, Lisa is catching up with Ken and filling him in on how horrible her trip was. She’s emotional, and honestly, this part got to me. Ken tells Lisa he went to see John Blizzard, and had him print out his texts between himself and Teddi. Supposedly, Teddi is the one who said to bring the dog out at Vanderpump Dogs. Again, I have such mixed feelings about this, because it’s hard not to believe Lisa’s surprise is anything but genuine.

We’re left with another cliffhanger in the Puppy Gate Saga. 🙆🏼‍♀️. I had a lot of feels watching this episode. If I had never seen RHOBH before, and if I didn’t know what was going on in real time (Teddi admitting she was in on Puppy Gate, but LVP double crossed her), I honestly would believe Lisa Vanderpump. Knowing what I know from prior seasons though, this is a pattern, ongoing since Season 1. LVP has always been The Queen of BH, and no one usually goes against her.

I think LVP severely underestimated Teddi. Last season, Teddi didn’t entirely fit in – she had a lot of drama with Dorit, and she fell to pieces when Erika yelled at her. It seemed like she only really got along with LVP, and I think LVP used that to her advantage, not giving Teddi enough credit. She definitely didn’t count on Teddi making stronger friendships this season, or really speaking up for herself.

So, if you’re asking if I think LVP is guilty of orchestrating the Puppy Gate Scandal – the answer is yes. Why? Because she was mad at Dorit & wanted to punish her without actually getting her hands dirty. End of story.

Until next week….
