What Would They Do Without Vanderpump?


img_0375

Seven weeks! It has been seven weeks since I last wrote anything about this show. After my last blog, I felt drained and demotivated. Many of you expressed understanding while others tried their best to encourage me to keep going BUT how could I? Nothing much was happening and every episode for the past seven weeks were filled with the same thing…NOTHING. However, I’ll give to you a quick recap.

Season 9 Episode 15 – One Wedding and a Polygraph

The episode began where we left off, with Lisa Vanderpump (LVP) getting ready to take the polygraph test to prove she had nothing to do with any plan to expose Dorit, whether it was by Teddi or through Radar Online. I can’t believe this was what she felt compelled to do in order to clear her name. As she had echoed since the beginning of this hashtag: puppygate, she was innocent of the accusations and the polygraph test proved her right. Would this be enough for the women? At that point they’d already made their minds up that the actual truth didn’t matter as nothing she did was going to satisfy their thirst for taking her down. 

After we saw Kyle complaining about all she had to do for Camille’s wedding, they finally arrived in Hawaii. They had some fun moments that I really enjoyed it but it didn’t take long before LVP’s was brought. Kyle happened to be the one to announce to the group that LVP took a lie detector test. Instead of showing some type of “relief” that at least they’d get some truth, they started questioning LVP’s reasons for doing the test in the first place. They even said she was taking things too far by doing that. Kyle gave one of the most scripted reasons as to how she found about the test that I’ve ever heard of. I may not be from Beverly Hills but I, like Kyle, know what’s real and what’s fake and that whole story was fake. The producers must really think the viewers are a bunch of empty minded folk to believe Kyle’s ridiculous story.

Camille got married and she looked truly beautiful. I was happy to see her so happy. If only she knew how much negativity Kyle had been spewing about her wedding. I was disgusted.

Season 9 Episode 16 – Meet Rinna Jayne

Ugh! I rolled my eyes so far back as I could when I saw the title for this episode. What a joke! After Camille’s gorgeous wedding, the women headed back to California. While on their way to the airport, Rinna happened to be on her phone and saw an article about an interview Camille did prior to wedding. In the interview, Camille expressed she would have liked LVP to be at her wedding but she understood why she wouldn’t be attending. This is something Camille said to LVP herself when she visited her. The women didn’t like that and thought Camille was being two-faced because she said she understood LVP’s plight, totally ignoring the fact that Camille said to them as well that she would still have liked LVP to attend. This prompted Rinna to mention that Camille had said things behind Dorit’s back in September, basically one month after. I suppose Rinna wouldn’t have said anything if Camille joined in on the bashing of LVP. If I were Dorit, I’d keep Rinna at arms length for keeping this information till it suited her. To quote Erika, “that’s not friendship, that’s bullsh’t”.

The rest of the episode was a build up to a Halloween birthday party Kyle held for her eldest daughter, Farrah. The women dressed in what they deemed to be buzzworthy costumes. What was Dorit even wearing?!  As the title suggested, Rinna showed up to Kyle’s dressed as Erika from Coachella. She looked more like Michella Pfeiffer dressed as Harley QuinnKyle begged them to not bring up anything to Camille about what was said in the bus on the way to the airport in Hawaii because it was Farrah’s night. Kim Richards showed up and Rinna used this as an opportunity, yet again, to attack Kim by using the costume she wore as an excuse to call Kim’s behaviour toward her “c*nty”. This time, her bestie (Denise) butted in and for the first time in 16 episodes she had something to say. Too bad it was at Kim’s expense. I knew Denise’s down to earth, laid back persona was just a guise for herKyle, as we’ve come to know and expect, didn’t stick up for Kim in that moment. Kim and Rinna got a chance to speak and both apologised for things they did. I don’t think Kim owed Rinna any apologies but oh well…

Season 9 Episode 17 – A Double Shot of Brandi

This was truly one of the most boring episodes of the series. As we’ve come to expect every season, the women were due for a cast trip. We spent about 10 minutes of the episode with Kyle calling Chateau Ventoux in Provence, France to finalise dates for the trip, 4 days before they were scheduled to leave, while trying to get one of her dogs to keep quiet. I still don’t know why she didn’t just go into another room or why we had to watch this scene for that long. I now understand why fans were annoyed, watching her clip Mauricio’s toenails. That’s not entertainment.

Kyle met the women for lunch and she filled them in on the plans for the trip. They acted like they didn’t know about this trip before the season started. At this point I’d love for the producers of these shows to stop acting like these trips aren’t planned before the season starts and that they determine who will show up. Rinna mentioned that she would like Camille to be invited so she could tell Dorit what she had said about her. They all started laughing and that they’ll gang up on Camille in FranceSince at this point it was evident LVP would no longer be around them, they needed a new target and Camille was it.

Shockingly, well not really, Brandi Glanville showed up to meet Denise for drinks. These new producers really had it out for LVP to bring in Brandi on to further add to lies being told all season. She spent all of 6 minutes bashing LVP, stating that LVP damaged her life, still not taking any accountability for opening her own mouth to try and degrade Joanna Krupa on Watch What Happens LiveI wasn’t even surprised that she had nothing else to talk about than LVP because that’s all she’s been doing since she was fired back in season 5. I had an inkling that she was going to be invited on the trip and I was right. Denise decided to invite her and like the desperate wreck she is, she accepted. Denise really knows how to pick them, huh? Viewers were also angered by this scene because the producers invited Brandi to bash LVP as well a ruse to get her on the trip, all while cutting out LVP’s scene she filmed with The Trevor Project

Kyle, Teddi and Rinna were then on their way to the airport when they called Denise to see what was up due to the Woolsey FiresDenise sounded panicked as she exclaimed she had never seen anything like that before and she didn’t know whether her home was safe or not. Wanna know what the “caring” friends said to her? They told her they hope she makes it to the airport for the trip since they would be there till 3pm. UNBELIEVABLE. Camille was next up on the list for them to call and she basically repeated what Denise said and she made it known she wouldn’t make the trip. You’d think that with their friends going through something of that nature that these women would postpone the trip that none of them were paying for but noooo, they still hopped on a plane and to France they went. You know who was there to help the community, LVP.

Season 9 Episode 18 – Pardon Our French 

Rinna, Teddi, Dorit, Erika and Kyle made it to Provence. The chateau was beautiful and looked like the perfect place to vacation. Sadly, I couldn’t appreciate its beauty because they still went ahead on a trip knowing full well what was happening back in CaliforniaYes, they’ll claim there was nothing they could’ve done and that the trip was booked in advance for X amount of people but they weren’t footing the bill, at least not all of it. Besides, they’re rich. They can afford to lose whatever money spent for the trip cuz if they could choose the chateau, which amounts to almost $10,000 a night, then money is not a problem, right? Unless you’re Dorit, Erika and Kyle whose husbands are being sued for millions. 

They went for some outing in a local market and started talking about eating disorders. Rinna shared a little bit about what her daughter was going through and then Kyle admitted that she, too, had experienced her share of eating disorders. This was the first time she had ever spoken about this on camera in 9 seasons which is really shocking. She mentioned she wants her daughters to love themselves and not yield to societal pressures about a beauty standard. I commended Kyle for sharing this but can’t help thinking how contradictory her speech was given she said on the camping trip that the Kardashians are now the face of body positivity. How could she even say that with a straight face? As usual, they took a shot at LVP by stating they feel better opening up to each other without fear of being judged. Utter rubbish! LVP had never judged any of them, especially Erika as she was the one who made the comment. LVP embraced her from the moment they met while the others looked up her videos and turned up their noses.

Kyle and Teddi then brought up what Rinna did at the Halloween party and asked Erika if she wasn’t angry at Rinna. Sounds familiar? This was the same play they used on LVP in episode 1 at the centre when Kyle got mad that LVP wasn’t showing any anger toward Dorit for giving away Lucy, which caused her to end up in a kill shelter. Erika told them she as fine with it and they kept prodding her, hoping she agreed with them. Erika seemed to have spotted what Kyle and Teddi were up to and shut it down fast like she usually does everything. 

Season 9 Episode 19 – Thirst Impressions

They learnt Camille’s house was burned while Denise’s was okay and still didn’t think to cut the trip short. A rose tasting was organised and Erika didn’t seem pleased to even be there at that point. She can’t really hide her annoyance, no matter what she says. They suggested doing impersonations of each other and again, Erika wasn’t having it. Later, Kyle and Teddi decided to bring up the issue again about Rinna dressing like Erika, attacking Kim. Erika stormed off but not before saying that she felt like she was being bullied and being pushed out of the group. This was either one of the most rehearsed dinner arguments ever or…who am I kidding? They needed something to happen on the trip because they literally were a boring quintet. 

It is often said that when people drink, they reveal their true selves and Kyle and Teddi showed that they do not like Erika because she doesn’t get involved nor looks like she enjoys being around them. They’re not wrong. I’ve been saying this since she joined in season 6.

Lights, Camera, Oh My God That Ending!

Season 9 Episode 14 – The Show Must Go On

First off, I apologise for my blog being so late. I went to Tokyo for the weekend and frankly, my getaway was well needed. I even missed a day of work. LOL. But here goes…

We got a glimpse of Camille trying on her wedding dress as her wedding was right around the corner. Her dress was looked so beautiful and perfect for a wedding in Hawaii.

Lisa Vanderpump (LVP) finally revealed the end result of her new kitchen and it was every bit of glamorous as I expected. It looked so much lighter than before and as John Sessa pointed out, very Lisa Vanderpump.

Since Erika’s concert was back in LA, she was doing press for it and she seemed excited. Dorit was then seen catching up her husband on the RV trip she had with girls.

Kyle, Dorit and Lisa Rinna (Rinna) took a run around Kyle’s property and once again, they gave us a workout scene. I’m over it!

Denise, again won’t be filming with the women because she had work in Miami. I’m not sure many people take note of the fact that Denise had not filmed much with the women at all. Most of her scenes were with her husband and kids. I like her but she needs to go. Not a good fit. No shade to OC but send her there. We then saw Denise go to tell one of her daughters that she was saddened she would be missing her first dance. It was a sweet moment but I’m bored. All Denise talks about is sex.

THE PRETTYMESS SHOW

Erika started her preparation for the concert with last minute run throughs. Her husband made his second appearance for the season, to see what the money he’s spending on Erika is truly used for. He seemed pretty much into her stage persona and she, happy to see him. Their interaction was a bit odd but I guess that’s just them.

The women started showing up to the concert and at this point, halfway through the episode, nothing dramatic happened. Erika had an entire episode dedicated to her and it fell flat. How? The mic went out on her set but they quickly fixed it and the show went on. Good for her.

THE GAG OF ALL GAGS

Camille rung up LVP for a chat, so LVP invited her over. Camille expressed how much she wanted LVP to be at her wedding but LVP wasn’t budging. LVP basically told her that there was no sense in attending her wedding when the focus should be her but the women wouldn’t let her have it. Camille seemed to understand to LVP’s face but had something completely different to say in her interviews.

Not long after Camille left, what could probably be a game changer for housewives everywhere, LVP was seen strapping herself to a polygraph in an effort to prove herself once and for all.

This episode was sort of a bust.

Camp Fires and Happy Endings (Sorta)

Season 9 Episode 13 – Grilling Me Softly

imb_ulkiuh

LET’S GO CAMPING

On this episode, the ladies treated us with an unexpected twist; they went camping. I know! I was a bit surprised too because none of the women have shown, over the years, that this is something they’d enjoy. But hey, they can only film so much more content of Erika and Lisa Rinna (Rinna) at the gym. LoL. As is expected when the women are preparing for travel, we see individual clips of them packing the “necessities”.

We started off with Kyle and Teddi exchanging words over the phone about the amount of stuff needed then made a joke about glam squads going. Dorit was then seen telling her glam squad that they won’t be able to go on the trip, so she’s going to be all natural.

Next up, Rinna was with her husband, HarryHarry seemed genuinely amused by Rinna’s 24 hour bag. The trip was just for a day. I gotta say, seeing Harry this excited about Rinna going camping was a delight. I can only imagine how many times he’d invited her to join him. Rinna being Rinna, packed a whole bunch of stuff, you’d think she was going away for two weeks.

The women began arriving at Teddi’s (she sure is getting a lot of screen time this season at her home) one by one. As soon as Kyle arrived she mentioned that PK messaged her and apologised. She said Dorit could have handled the situation better and that she lets things go easily. Yea, right!

Soon after they headed off to the campsite but not before they go crazy in the Vons for groceries. I swear it’s like these women have never bought groceries before. LOL. They grabbed things they all like and the bill came to over $700. To be rich…ahhh.

They arrived at the campsite then went straight for their tents. The tents were decked out to the fullest, way better than when the women went glamping on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Erika opted for a massage as the rest of the women indulged in a game of beer pong. To my surprise, Dorit smashed this game and emerged the victor. Shocked.

After Erika returned, the conversation shifted a little bit to their favourite pastime, talking about Lisa Vanderpump (LVP). Okay…they sorta have to address things related to LVP because whilst she wasn’t filming with everyone, she was still in communication with a few people and information was still being brought back to the group. Dorit claimed she still doesn’t know what she did for LVP to cut her off, when Teddi made sure to say this was Dorit’s punishment and that LVP was angry with her initially. All lies! If we go back to the very first episode of the season when LVP, Kyle and Teddi filmed at Vanderpump Dogs Center (VDC)Kyle got upset at LVP for asking her why she hadn’t been by TomTom all year when she wasn’t angry at Dorit for giving away Lucy. 

Erika chimed in, stating that she only cared about the women on the camping trip and those who show up. She continued further in her confessional that she can’t be friends with someone who keeps score and moves people around like chess pieces. She then said she’s never bought into LVP and never will. Erika was being her usual self, talking crap about LVP while never giving her a fair shot nor say any of this to her face, like she claims she does with people. The thing is, if she didn’t have to pretend to have this great friendship with her Hollywood friend, Yolanda, she and LVP could have possibly been a great duo. Kyle let us know once more that she has no regrets of accusing LVP of being angry at Dorit , so she (LVP) tried to set her (Dorit) up, without any proof. She’s only sorry about the outcome, that is, her getting kicked out.

They went for a short trek till they came upon the area for rock climbing. Dorit showcased her skillset by beating out Teddi and Denise. When it was Camille’s turn, she mentioned that she used a contraption like the rock climbing harness on an ex of hers. Hey Kelsey! 

CAMPFIRES AND HAPPY ENDINGS

Night fell and they gathered around a campfire after eating the burgers they made. Unseasoned, I might add. Talk changed to happy endings after Denise returned from her massage and made a comment about being bummed about not getting one. An obvious joke…maybe. The women seemed completely thrown as mouths dropped wide open. Denise decided this would be her moment to shine and shared that she and her new husband, Aaron, went on the hunt for a massage with a happy ending. I couldn’t believe my ears. Her excuse was that she hadn’t met a man who hadn’t received one and she wanted that for him.

The ladies reaction were hilarious and most of them seemed to be blushing. It didn’t end there. Denise further added that she has also received a happy ending which was an also another shocker for the women. Oh DeniseCamille then shared when she was dating a guy in New York, she would help him get better orgasms by massaging his prostrate. Is that Dimitri?

Camille asked Kyle if things were good with her Dorit after their dinner at Teddi’s. Kyle stated that PK apologised and things are fine. Dorit joins them and soon after Teddi added, like she has been doing since LVP neglected to be her storyline, that nothing comes out of people’s mouth’s unless they’re thinking it. She just can’t accept that Kyle and Dorit want to move on. Camille decided to let her know she needs to stop inserting herself into things that weren’t her business. It is here that Camille probably saw what Teddi’s gameplay was. Teddi responded by telling Camille that she only talks out of the side of her mouth and never to her face and that she should stick to her storyline of coming for her. Season 1 Camille returned and told Teddi that her face was right there, basically knuck if you buckWhile all this was happening, Kyle kept playing with her and giving her usual wry smile. This is Kyle’s tell. She does this whenever someone is repeating stuff she talks about, to the person, the gossip is usually about. Before things got further off course, Rinna piped up and reminded the group what the purpose of the trip was for, by saying this all started from one person.

Camille pulled her reigns and fell in line. She added that it’s the hurt from LVP that was seeping into the group. Wrong again ladies! This all started because Dorit gave up LucyTeddi was planning a take down and thought LVP would be on board since she this was her work, and when she realised that wasn’t the case, reeled Kyle in, who helped her hide the messaged from everyone and kept bringing the topic up to LVP. That’s how we they got to that point. It’s all documented. You might disagree if you dislike LVP but that’s how it is. Kyle gave her bits and said that they all care about LVP but it was time to move on, an indication the storyline was about to switch. 

They retired for bed shortly after and had a very awkward morning at the table as Teddi and Camille didn’t really acknowledge each other. Can’t wait to see what happens next.

It would have been so good seeing LVP on the trip because she would have added for more content and fun moments but that’s the way the cookie crumbled. I liked the episode as I do every episode of every season, even if I say it was slow. What I found funny was the fan reaction as well as the cast tweeting up a storm about the episode being so fun. The fans moaned and groaned about how boring last season was and that they needed drama (I never did as I thought the women laughed way more last season). Now the same fans are praising an episode for light drama and fun, that they’ve been complaining about for two years. All this just to stick it to LVP and that she isn’t needed. Well, they couldn’t stop talking about her and that was what was edited.

We Don’t Have A Friendship

Season 9 Episode 12 – The Ultimate Ultimatum

imb_ulkiuh

Here we go!

Coming off such a painfully boring episode last week, with the exception of the last 7 minutes or so, I didn’t really have much expectations from this week’s episode besides the sit down between Lisa Vanderpump (LVP) & Ken with Paul Kemsley (PK) & Dorit.

NOT ANOTHER WORKOUT SESSION

Erika and Lisa Rinna (Rinna) decided to catch up while working out. Rinna claimed that whenever Erika was in town from touring, they always try to see each other. Maybe that’s true but this only happens during filming as Erika doesn’t hang out with anyone from the show when the cameras aren’t rolling. They talked about their shared respect for each other and that things didn’t start out in the best of ways. Erika said she liked that Rinna was able to say when she was wrong unlike other people who don’t ever think they could make a mistake. A clear dig at LVP. It’s fascinating to see how Rinna can say the most outrageous things (spread that Yolanda had munchausen, saying to Eden that Kim was close to death and that Kyle was enabling Kim’s alcoholism, accuse Dorit of facilitating cocaine usage at her party, send threatening texts to Kim that she will f’k her up) as long as she “owns it” and people simply move on but someone (LVP) who has never treated Erika unkindly, can’t even be given a fair shot? What a joke! At this point, I guess it’s safe to say that Erika only sees LVP as her coworker and not as a friend. Anyways, I’m bored of these two because this was their only contribution to the episode…and one other comment Erika made (will be brought up later). 

LVP and Ken met with Steven at Royal Stone to choose the perfect white marble for the their new kitchen. They were shown a greyish-white marble slab but LVP wanted no parts of any dark colours for the kitchen. Puffy (LVP’s dog), strutting his stuff and wagging his tail decided to mark his territory on one of the large marble slabs. LOL. You can’t bring those fur babies anywhere. I can’t wait to see to see the finished product. LVP then revealed to Ken that PK called her and she agreed to a sit down with him and Dorit. Ken is completely on board with this but he cautioned that it may be tricky with Dorit. If he only knew how right he was! 

Dorit invited us to her new office space because she was tired of working from her home as her company grew. A company, if we go by the tabloids and the video from Jasmine Lennard’s Twitter, she screwed her business partner out of. She’s even made claims that the guy was never a partner but Bravo cameras say otherwise. PK then informs her that he spoke to LVP and that a meeting was set up for them to iron things out. Dorit claimed she won’t put her integrity on the line. I almost choked on my breakfast when I heard that. What integrity does Dorit possibly have to see the proof of Teddi’s texts and nothing of LVP’s involvement, but believes Teddi’s word over the only person who had her back since she joined the show? If she had any integrity at all, she would pay the $5000 fine for breaching the contract.

Kyle and Teddi went on a walk in some park or whatever to talk about their upcoming RV trip. I really have no interest in anything they have to do because they’re not sharing anything that doesn’t make them look good. Kyle brought up yet again (like she always does) that she was still upset at PK’s comment. Kyle mentioned that LVP surrounds herself with yes people but here she has Teddi agreeing with everything she says. Like I said, the projection queen. Kyle further added that she was defending Dorit against LVP because she spoke up and told the truth and that Dorit PK should be thanking her. What truth is Kyle talking about? Why does she keep repeating the same lines? She literally told no truths so far because she’s told no one that she saw the texts messages between Teddi and John Blizzard the very first day she filmed with LVP. I’m so disappointed in Kyle. 

CAMILLE’S BACK AT IT

Camille met with Denise to fill her in on what she missed at the concert with Boy George as well as to talk about her upcoming nuptials. Let’s just say, Camille had a whole lot to say about everyone and she wasn’t even drinking. Oh Camille, your comments were pretty catty, some more on point than others. 

  • Denise filled us in on her morning routine for getting her kids ready for school and Kyle showed us she lets Portia sleep with her and Mauricio. I don’t see anything wrong with Kyle’s parenting because her kids are great but I found this particular storyline, and if you look back at how she was with her kids throughout the years, it seemed a bit hypocritical because she scolded her sister, Kim, when she was on the show for being an attached parent.

IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE HER, NO FRIENDSHIP

Ken and LVP were getting things sorted for an event being held to celebrate LGBT rights being acknowledged in India when Dorit PK pull up for their scheduled meeting. Now, before I dive into the scene, I’ve noticed across social media platforms, the anti-LVP clan are accusing her appropriating Indian culture because all in attendance wore traditional Indian garb. They spend all their time obsessing over and trash talking LVP, calling her supporters delusional but you never hear them talk about their actual favs. Sad, really. LVP was never using the event for profit. She didn’t darken her skin to look like the average, stereotypical Indian nor did her guests. What she did was adorn herself in Indian clothing, celebrating a massive moment in the India’s history. None of it was for personal gain. What LVP did is called appreciation, not appropriation. Stop trying to sound “woke” when your intentions are impure. Disgusting!

They were meeting for lunch at PUMP but it wasn’t open for business so LVP had sushi ordered for them. Dorit and PK discussed their feelings going into the lunch. PK decided to leave a lot of what happens at lunch up to Dorit. She exclaimed that she has to be true to herself and that people in a friendship can have a difference of opinion. That is true but things change when one person, in a friendship, accuses the other of some trying to defame them with NO PROOF. It’s not like LVP said Madonna wouldn’t be as huge of a star if she came out today. That’s an opinion, not what Dorit wants LVP to fess up to.

LVP wasted no time in telling Dorit that she hadn’t been happy lately because of the whole Radar Online article. Dorit responded by asking her why she went to TMZ instead of calling her about it. Dorit may have had a point about LVP calling to find out what was going on with the article, if we didn’t see her say on camera to PK, without even talking to LVP that she knows for a fact that LVP leaked the article. She came to the conclusion because of the word “nipped” being used in the article, a word she says she never uses.

If you pay attention to the After Shows on bravotv.com, you would’ve come across a segment where Dorit makes some accusations of her own. She started off by stating that Vanderpump Dogs Centre (VDC) basically coerced her into getting a dog. I’m no rocket scientist but isn’t she the parent? Isn’t she the one responsible for any decisions made regarding her kids? So, we are to believe that LVP passed on her power of manipulation to her partner and employees at the VDC, which is how Dorit got Maddie and then Lucy? Are you really buying this? Bollocks! In the same After Show, Dorit accused John Sessa of saying if she got Lucy, she (Lucy) would be the new Giggy (LVP’s dogbecause Giggy had been sick and would soon be out the door. Erika added she knew this as well because Dorit told her. How could Dorit call herself a friend of LVP and Ken’s and not tell them about such a comment made by their business partner? Instead she brushed it off as him being catty but yet she told Erika. Make it make sense. 

Here’s the kicker. Dorit protested while talking to PK that she knew LVP leaked the story because only a handful of people knew the type of dog that Lucy was. She added that when she told LVP about it, LVP’s exact words were “so she (Lucy) nipped at the kids, well, you know that can happen” and that is a word she’s never used before. PK followed up by saying “nipped is an English word. Well, here she is using that word so freely on the After Show. I thought “nipped” was a word Dorit never uses? Or did LVP manipulate her into adding it to her vocabulary? Again, grasping for straws. 

LVP tried to reassure Dorit that she went to TMZ because this was now out in the public and she wanted it to be known that everything was fine and that she (Dorit) shouldn’t be chastised. Dorit didn’t want to hear that because she expected LVP to call her. LVP told her (Dorit) that she will unfortunately find out too late that she was indeed trying to protect her and I believe she was proven right from the very first episode as we saw Kyle getting upset at LVP for not being angier at Dorit and that Teddi was actually planning to take her down. Ken of course gave his thoughts on the situation and told PK and Dorit that his wife is honest and has no need to lie and she is a good friend. PK seemed torn between his wife and his friends as he tried to have everyone come to an understanding. LVP, swore to him on her kids lives, that she nor anyone she knows would do such a thing to Dorit. That was enough for PK to tell Dorit that if LVP is swearing on her kids lives, he had to accept it. Maybe it’s a British thing but why do the Americans not accept such an oath? Is it because an oath means nothing to them? Like LVP stated, them not accepting what she said, even after swearing on her kids’ lives, says more about them than her. 

Dorit, with no proof of anything that LVP was involved but had seen proof of what Teddi planned on doing and did actually do, told her (LVP) that she believed she had a hand in #puppygate since the texts. At that point Ken had enough. He walked off but not before letting Dorit know that there can’t be a friendship if she’s think his wife is a liar and I have to agree. As LVP said, why would anyone want to be friends with a person they think lies and would try to defame them? Dorit seems to not understand this concept and mentioned to PK that she doesn’t want a friendship with conditions because that’s what LVP was basically asking her to do. “I have to be true to myself” she says. But isn’t she asking LVP to be her friend with a condition as well? It goes both ways darling. 

As they got up to leave, Dorit pulled what Kyle did when she went LVP’S house. She tried one more time for LVP to admit that she did what she was being accused of so they could move past it because she (Dorit) loves her. LVP told her she doesn’t want love like that because she wouldn’t love nor want to be friends with someone who she thinks horribly of. It was at this point that Dorit’s narrative changed and she threw another accusation out there at LVP, by stating LVP was holding a grudge from last year when she (Dorit) told Kyle and the other women that LVP was needy and sought attention. How this came about, I really don’t know but it seems they’re trying their hardest to make something stick. I mean, if LVP was reticent about her feelings toward the situation last season, she wouldn’t have begged the fans to give Dorit another chance. UGH! I’m over Dorit.

  • Kyle had a photoshoot with her family for a Christmas card and her dogs ran out through the gate. Luckily they weren’t hurt and she got them back on the property. The shoot was simple and seemed fun and I liked the card. I actually used the service for my own holiday cards as well.

WHO’S A BETTER FRIEND?

The women gathered at Teddi’s house for drinks before they left for their RV trip. Erika informs the women that LVP invited her to the event she was having for LGBT rights in India. Erika however, declined the invitation and I was a bit surprised


that no one, not even the producers asked her why she didn’t go. Erika is fine with performing all across America and Greece, in clubs and she’s worshipped for being “fabulous” (so shallow) but can’t show up to an event for LGBT rights being recognised in India? She could have gone to the event and then go to meet the women after. Out of everyone, LVP invited her to the event. This was a moment Erika could’ve proven she is as fair as she claims. But it’s all posturing, isn’t it? I guess India’s LGBT community isn’t her audience. It’s even sadder to know she declined the invite for such a historic event, given the fact that we have never seen seen any philanthropy of hers on the show. They said LVP didn’t want to film with them (she didn’t) but it seems LVP took Denise’s advise and that’s why she reached out to Erika


but I came to find out she was hosting the AMAs pre-show on the red carpet, so she couldn’t have gone. (I struck out the above after receiving the info. Clever editing Bravo. I still think she wouldn’t have gone even if there were no AMAs.) Teddi announced she too messaged LVP about the RV trip but didn’t get a response. Teddi had some nerve sending LVP texts messages now that she stopped filming with them especially because she didn’t think to text to her to confirm if what John Blizzard texted her was the truth. You know why she didn’t do that? Because this was never a plan of LVP’s

Dorit then filled them in on her lunch with LVP and Ken. She told them that LVP said if she (Dorit) didn’t believe her then there was no friendship. I’m surprised she relayed the correct information. Rinna claims LVP can’t say she’s sorry after Denise suggests that LVP should apologise. Kyle was the first to make some snide comment as if she would ever apologise for doing something she didn’t do. Kyle further added that it seemed strange how protective Ken, LVP and PK are of each other, that they must have some business or secrets on each other. This confirmed what LVP said in season 3 to Kyle that she was only close to her (LVP) and Ken so that Mauricio could get the listing on their home. I say this because for Kyle to make such insinuations, showed how her mind works and probably how she see friendships. She just can’t understand that loyalty means something to some people and there doesn’t have to be anything shady going on. Camille jumped in by stating they never heard of Dorit and PK until about two years ago in support of Kyle’s view that she is a closer to LVP and had never heard of PK nor Dorit. Well, Kyle thought Nanny Kay was a cartoon character after LVP had talked about her from the second season. Kyle is the last person to claim closeness. It made LVP’s comment at last season’s reunion that their friendship had always been her listening to Kyle‘s concerns, very true. It also shun a brighter light what on the first episode when she said to Kyle that she was dealing with a lot (LVP had just buried her brother) and Kyle responded by saying she had a lot of stuff dealing with too. 

They’re arguing over who was a closer friend to LVP but it doesn’t matter because neither acted like a friend to her at all of last summer into fall, instead they kept accusing her of things without any proof. Friends don’t do that.
