Some of the women feel that they’ve go Lisa figured out in this episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Gigi Hadid, Yolanda’s daughter, is graduating, and Yolanda is preparing an Arabic going away party for her held at Mohamed’s home. She says both Gigi and Bella are typically embarrassed to have parties at their father’s home due to its size. I’ve actually met the both of them, and they do get a little embarrassed about some of the things. Yolanda joins Mohamed and his very young fiancée, Shiva in his backyard for breakfast, and to ask them to help her throw Gigi’s party. According to Yolanda, to be with a woman for a year and half is pretty serious for Mohamed. I wonder what Shiva’s secret is. Yolanda’s stepdaughter’s wedding was held at Mohamed’s just days before, the same night as Lisa’s event for Mauricio’s and Ken’s birthday (What ISN’T held at Mohamed’s?).
Mohamed tells Yolanda that Lisa just has a lot going on, and must have forgotten about he and Yolanda having to attend David Foster’s youngest daughter’s wedding held at his home. Yolanda suggests that it must be amnesia, and feels that Lisa seems to be all about Lisa. I don’t know if I agree with her frustration about Lisa hosting the event the same night, and inviting Mohamed, because although she was told beforehand, some people do like to invite people anyway just to be nice.
At the Richards/Umansky home, Kyle asks Mauricio if he talked to their daughter Alexia about her wanting to go on a weekend trip with her friends. Mauricio is very fine with the idea, and feels that the children should be made responsible for their own actions, because it’s the best method. Kyle, on the other hand, is quite worried, particularly about driving, sex, and drugs. Well, you know what they say. I’m assuming Kyle was Wild Kyle back in the day, and is probably thinking about what SHE did on HER weekend trips.
Kyle pitches the idea of going to Puerto Rico with Joyce to Mauricio. Kyle is looking for a romantic getaway, whereas Mauricio is trying to incorporate business into the trip. Poor Kyle.
Carlton visits her husband at his financing business which he runs with his two brothers, who look nothing like him. She let’s us know that YES, they’ve made a ton of money. The company is coming to its 40th anniversary, and is throwing a party to celebrate and thank their clients. Carlton and the event planner are discussing the party plans, and it honestly sounds tacky (like the rest of her parties), but I’m going to give her the benefit of the doubt for now.
Back at Kyle’s home, she and Mauricio discuss the e-mail that Carlton has sent Kyle. Kyle is no longer invited to the event, however Mauricio is……as I said before, tacky. I don’t know if Carlton is working on all eight cylinders. Kyle says she wouldn’t have attended anyway. That’s why there’s 31 flavors in an ice cream shop, Kyle. Don’t you just love Mauricio’s words of wisdom?
Joyce and Ivette, the current Queen of the Universe meet with personal trainer, Rob. Joyce must have a freaky side with that husband of hers that we don’t know about, because some of Rob’s equipment reminds her of s&m. Joyce would love Phaedra Parks. Joyce reveals that she did not grow up in a golden crib, and had a lot of chicken, and cows, and a turkey that she would sing to and go, “gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble…..” Started from the bottom, now we’re here, Joyce. Joyce wants Mauricio and Kyle to see where she comes from and how nice Puerto Ricans are (although it’s where they spent their honeymoon).
David is helping Yolanda prepare for her U.S. Citizenship exam, which is coming up in a few days. Yolanda is nervous, due to her Lyme disease changing her brain function. So, David has been pounding her brain every night. I wonder if that’s all he’s pounding.
Carlton’s event begins. I’m not understanding the cars out front, but I guess they want people to know that they’ve made money. The event looks nice, otherwise. Lisa and Ken arrive, and promptly cut to the front. I don’t know why, but I laughed at the look on that blonde woman’s face as they walked passed her in the line. Inside, Carlton apologizes to Lisa for her out of control behavior at Mauricio’s and Ken’s birthday party. Lisa informs Carlton that the star thing was blown out of proportion. Carlton feels hurt because of Lisa’s former feelings towards Kyle. What does that have to do with telling you when you’re wrong, Carlton?
Carlton reveals that she lived in South Africa during the Apartheid, and was very hurt by Kyle accusing her of being prejudice. That part I can understand, however Kyle probably would have never said anything like that had Carlton not had shown out at the party. Lisa suggest that Carlton have another conversation with Kyle, which causes Carlton to almost have a breakdown. Carlton seems really hurt by Kyle’s comments. I do feel for her. Especially after hearing that a large amount of the family’s business is Jewish, and Kyle accused her of being anti-Semitic.
Kim arrives to the event just as Lisa and Ken are leaving. Coincidence? They run into each other, and have an awkward conversation. Kim tells them that she is still upset with Ken, and that he is in the doghouse. I’m sorry, whose husband is he? Kim is just throwing the jabs and the shade, after Ken and Lisa ask her why she wasn’t at his and Mauricio’s birthday party. Kim is still upset with the way Ken “treated” her.
Inside the party, Brandi arrives, and let’s Kim and Carlton know that she has a swollen tongue and throat due to something she ate. I want to say something, but I won’t. Brandi pulls Kim aside to talk to her about the big fight between Carlton and Kyle at the birthday party. Kim feels that Kyle should be nice to Carlton, because she knows Carlton is witch for real and casts spells. Just ask Joyce and her husband.
Brandi is upset that Lisa had Scheana as a server at the birthday party, and says she was not prepared to see her there. However, she says that she runs into Scheana when she goes to Sur. Um, what is the difference, Brandi? Anyone who knows me knows I love me some Brandi, but she is definitely digging for stuff to be upset about. I do agree with the whole question on marriage thing though, that was quite messy. (Producer involvement?) Now, all of a sudden, Kim is bringing up how dismissive Lisa was to Joyce when Joyce was actually being petty trying to bring up that whole hair fixing nonsense. Digging.
Yolanda passed her test and is a U.S. Citizen, y’all! Stassi from Sur goes over to Lisa’s to work with the stylist for Lisa’s photo shoot, and I don’t understand why. Stassi is upset that Lisa gave her clothes away to a foster home, and not to a poor waitress, like herself. Oh, Stassi.
Brandi and Kyle meet up for a hike. Brandi says that her mother lived in Puerto Rico for 4 years, and has always wanted to go herself. Kyle decides to invite Brandi on the trip. I’m not sure if that’s a good idea. Brandi decides to confide in Kyle about her annoyance with Lisa, and begins pulling a Kim, by bringing up what Lisa said about Kyle and Mauricio hanging around Adrienne to get the listing of her home. Why are these women so quick to bring up things Lisa has done and said in the past? Brandi reveals that is no longer getting her morning phone call from Lisa, and Kyle reveals that she is receiving morning phone calls from Lisa now. They feel like they’re being played. I do agree, it would look a little fishy to me, to be honest. However, I’m not sure what Lisa would actually gain from that.
Kyle is still upset about the joke Lisa made about the rumors of Mauricio and a younger woman. Brandi feels as if she was doing Lisa’s dirty work as far as Adrienne is concerned. Oh, Brandi, please. You’re a grown woman, she is not manipulating you like that without you noticing until a year later. Brandi Googled Bobby Fischer, and says that Lisa really is Bobby. Kyle feels that unless you’re kissing Lisa’s ass, she doesn’t like it. Brandi feels that Lisa is going to ruin her, and possibly exile her like she did Adrienne and Cedric. Oh, my.
Next week, Lisa finds out she isn’t well liked by the others.
