Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Recap: Trail of Doubts

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Recap: Trail of Doubts [Episode 15]

Kyle Richards - Brandi Glanville

Some of the women feel that they’ve go Lisa figured out in this episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Yolanda Foster - MohamedGigi 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.

Mauricio Umansky - Kyle RichardsAt 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 GiraudJoyce 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.

Lisa Vanderpump - Ken ToddKim 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.

Lisa VanderpumpKyle 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.

    Nicely done Remy. I can’t help but think the Brandi vs. Lisa feud is fake Bravo infused drama. I’m not buying it.

    • ohdearme

      I think you’re right Doc, this seems to be one of the staple story lines for Bravo, “friends falling out” OR “everybody hates……..”. It gets old as real people don’t behave this way.

      • Dr Seuss

        Exactly. And not to mention the viewers are not that stupid to fall for the fakery. It’s old and tired.

        • WestCoastFeed

          If Brandi ever says, Lisa only likes her “soldiers,” the cat will completely fly out of the bag as the viewing audience gasps, “Aha! It’s Jac and Teresa all over again,”

          • Dr Seuss

            Bingo! It’s clear as day, West.

    • Rhett Butler

      Thanks Doc! You know, I never thought about it that way!

      • Dr Seuss

        Hey Rhett! You’re welcome.

  • momplus5

    Why does Bravo continue to do the us vs them scenario? Lisa told Kyle seasons ago they would never be friends like they were. Kyle hasn’t taken the hint. Brandi has always been desperate and even more so now.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Thanks for the recap, Remy. I haven’t watched this yet, but it sounds like we are getting a couple of reasons here for the dimming of adoration of Lisa. Cutting to the front of the reception line? Really? Who does that? That does not sound like it was producer induced. However the rest of the cast rehashing old grievances does sound like the producers had their hands in there.

    • twifan2

      Lisa & Ken do/did, WCF.
      ALL the shows are starting to be more like soap operas to me. :/

      • noarguingwithstupid

        Only instead of watching every day, we have to wait a week!!!

        • twifan2

          In a way good thing. Because there are lots of other better shows on! :)

          • noarguingwithstupid

            True!!!! But no Dracula while the Olympics are on!!!! :(

    • Bryan

      You should be more bothered by the women looking and digging for crap to crucify Lisa for then be bothered by someone by passing a line.

      • WestCoastFeed

        None of it bothers me. I haven’t seen it yet. But it certainly sounds like a producer manufactured conflict being created.

        • noarguingwithstupid

          It was surely a producer manufactured conflict made to order!!!!

        • Bryan

          it has to be or no one would watch because most of these women would be doing nothing but stuff most do and that isn’t really worth watching

          • WestCoastFeed

            I’d watch if it went back to the original concept of well-off women just shopping, partying and having fun.

    • momplus5

      I didn’t understand the cutting in line. Lisa and Ken rich yes, Hollywood Royalty no.

      • twifan2

        Carlton party Royalty…No.
        Bravo manipulating…Yes.

        • momplus5

          Just like they had Scheana serving at Lisa’s party.

          • twifan2

            Yes. Set up.
            All about the drama, soap opera style.

            • momplus5

              Personally I think Vanderpump Rules is a poorly acted soap opera.

              • noarguingwithstupid

                I think Vanderslut Rules is a horrible show that should be cancelled. Nothing nice or fun about it. Just a bunch of self-absorbed children.

              • twifan2

                Don’t watch it.

                • momplus5

                  I have watched it a few times at best. Wishing General Hospital was back instead of this.

                  • noarguingwithstupid

                    I can’t watch it anymore. I find it hard to believe it is still on!!!!!

                • julyol1972

                  Me either!

                  • Birdie11

                    Couldn’t get thru one episode of that show…oversexed, adult adolescents make me want to barf. Plus I didn’t want them to pollute my opinion of Lisa!

                    • julyol1972

                      I swore off VR this season – one was enough! It’s like work incest with these folks – I can’t with the out of work actors, the sleeping around, and the constant fighting and screaming. How the hell do those folks get any work done?

      • noarguingwithstupid

        Don’t get sucked in!!!! Production did it to Make you made at Lisa!!!! They do it at the end of ever season!!!! It’s funny!!!

      • Bryan

        There is nothing wrong with cutting in line

    • Jennymckitty

      They were there with a camera crew. I’m sure that it was arranged that they go right in.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Did the other BH cast mates also skip the reception line and just walk in?

        • Jennymckitty

          The others weren’t shown arriving. As they were walking toward the line, Lisa kind of looked back and said “I guess we are to just go through here.”, or something like that as the started to walk in another door. I thought that she was talking to production. I’m sure that Bravo arranged for them to go right in and not keep producers and cameras standing in a line.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Gotcha. So, this may well be another producer contrived effort to sway the viewers opinion of her.

            • Jennymckitty

              Maybe they were by showing them going right in or maybe they were trying to show how many people were attending. I didn’t think Lisa and Ken were going right in because they felt they were above the line. I just assumed Bravo arranged it because it would be ridiculous to keep a camera crew and producers hanging out on the street waiting to get into a party. They had to stage Lisa being greated by Carlton…probably at a specific time and place. Seeing the pics of filming that lunch scene with Teresa really shows just how many people are involved in filming these things. That was just a simple scene and only involved two people. This was way more involved.

              • Birdie11

                Hi Jenny! I just assumed that they wanted to show the line, so Ken and Lisa got the VIP treatment. Didn’t they show Kim walking toward the entrance after the line was gone? She was going in when Ken and Lisa were leaving…late I’m sure. (:

                • WestCoastFeed

                  However it’s done, it does sound like Lisa is supposed to end up as the goat this season. At least that seems to be what Brandi has been claiming. I am just not very interested in this bunch. I have a hard time liking anyone who pampers a pet the way Ken pampers Giggy. And dresses him like his favorite doll.

                  • Jennymckitty

                    Giggy’s breeder wanted them to have Giggy put to sleep. Because of his alopecia, his skin has to be protected from the sun so he wears clothes. They don’t have to be that elaborate but he does need to have his skin covered. The same is true for all hairless breeds or dogs that get shaved down. They also have problems regulating their body temperature.

                    • julyol1972

                      Thanks for explaining that. Jenny. I thought the same about Giggy after reading about Lisa’s visit to Missouri/Wisconsin (?) to the Alopecia Retreat, which she and Ken are members of because of Giggy’s condition.

                    • WestCoastFeed

                      Yes, I know that giggy has to be dressed, but Ken goes too far.

                    • julyol1972

                      Haha! you’re right, Ken is more than slightly obsessed with that dog. But I love my Ken-Doll, so he gets a pass from me.

                    • Bryan

                      That dog is more famous then the other HW’s he need to look his best

                    • julyol1972

                      Yep! GIggy is very famous, but I also think dressing him up makes Ken happy. So much as it creeps me out sometimes, their devotion to that dog, it’s pretty harmless at the end of the day.

                    • Bryan

                      There are things in reality tv world that are more creepy then dressing a tiny dog up

                    • Birdie11

                      You don’t like the bedazzled tuxedos? SO ridic..but it seems to be a hobby for Ken, makes him happy I guess. Those outfits look scratchy to me..I say bring on the soft onesies and call it a day.

                  • Bryan

                    the poor thing is bald and gets cold, thats why they dress him

                • Jennymckitty

                  It showed her walking toward the door but not entering. And of course she was late.

                  • Birdie11

                    ..and slurring. The usual.

    • Rhett Butler

      Lol, it was so funny when she cut. But yea, it could have been set up.

    • julyol1972

      There was a separate VIP entrance at the front of the line, roped off from the other entrance. That’s where Ken and Lisa went in. They didn’t cut the line.

      • Rhett Butler

        I just figured they were going to have the cast go to the front regardless.

        • julyol1972

          True. There’s no way they were going to be made to wait like the other peons.

          • Rhett Butler

            It would have been so funny if the producers made Carlton have them wait and to see Lisa and Ken waiting in that line.

            • julyol1972

              Hah!You’re right, that would’ve been funny. But somehow I don’t think those two would’ve fussed as much as we think.

              The reality is that with Ken’s wonky hip, even though he had the surgery, the producers would never make them wait in a line that long.

    • Bryan

      The rest of the cast are stupid and need to be looked down on by Lisa

  • twifan2

    Great recap Remy!
    TY

  • noarguingwithstupid

    I totally missed what kind of business Carlton’s husband was in. Can someone tell me????

    • twifan2

      He runs three separate business with his father and two brothers: investment firm StockCross Financial Services, sports management firm Rival Sports Group, and high-end custom real estate development firm Gebbia Custom Estates.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        Well, I guess that’s where the 50 Million dollars comes from! Too bad Carlton doesn’t act the part of a successful business man’s wife. SHE’S A WITCH!!!!

        • twifan2

          Carlton is the interior architectural designer for Gebbia Custom Estates.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            She specializes in Catholic Churches and confessionals!

          • julyol1972

            Lord, with her horrible taste? How many crosses, confessionals, and S&M rooms can she design before it gets stale?

      • julyol1972

        When the season first started, Carlton only mentioned the Sports Management company. I wonder if that is because he manages that one solo, without his brothers?

  • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

    Why doesn’t Carlton’s husband look like any of his brothers? Which one is the milkman’s or mailman’s kid?

    • julyol1972

      You forgot Poolman!

    • Birdie11

      I actually think they do look alike…they all have that caveman look to them.

      • julyol1972

        I don’t know how folks find Carlton’s hubby attractive? His sloping forehead and massive jaw is so caveman-like Birdie, it’s not even funny.

        I’ll take Joyce’s hubby any day, thank you very much!

        • Birdie11

          Just that he likes Carlton would blech me out…even if he was attractive..which he isn’t.

          • julyol1972

            Right? I just find Carlton’s to be so aggressive in the way she wants everyone to behave and act, but yet the rules don’t seem to apply to her.

            I had someone help me understand a bit of where her aggression comes from towards Kyle’s lack of understanding about her religion. So I get why she might be a tad touchy. But sometimes it’s like she goes to sleep irritated, and wakes up a bitch.

            By the way, I watched the show twice, and didn’t hear her called a racist, I only heard “anti-semitic”. I didn’t realize that Kyle had also called her that word.

            • Birdie11

              I thought Kyle only called her anti-semitic..at the dinner party after Carlton was screeching at her about her ugly tattoo.

              • julyol1972

                I thought so too! Possible I missed it with all the excitement happening.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Oh, dear. It turns out that Carlton’s husband’s family financial concern, StockCross, has been in trouble for fraud in the past. Not another one! Bravo sure can pick ‘em.

    • Jennymckitty

      Why am I not surprised.

    • julyol1972

      Do tell, West!

      • WestCoastFeed

        I had to google it. A couple of the company employess defrauded an elderly man, had him take out a reverse mortgage and then drained his funds. Another was a fine for overcharging client fees.

        • julyol1972

          SMH! Fraudulence by Bravo!

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Oh, Boy, West!!! I hope we get another Fed.case here!!!! It couldn’t happen to a more dispicable housewife, except Teresa!!!

  • Birdie11

    If Carlton was so concerned about offending her Jewish clientele, maybe she shouldn’t have shown such utter disgust at Kyle mistaking her star for the Jewish one. This whole bad Lisa edit thing is SO stupid and contrived…I’m not buying it for a minute. Brandi acts like she’s a naive puppet with spotty amnesia…I guess Lisa is telling her to bellow STFU every 10 minutes. PUH-LEEZE…Bravo is underestimating the viewer’s intelligence…as usual.

    • julyol1972

      Hi Birdie! God, where to start? Okay! Carlton got on my last everloving nerve with that crying foolishness. Never once did she worry that feeling up the Nanny, propositioning Brandi, or anything in the vicinity with a vaj, or putting all her sexcapades out there might actually hurt her FIL’s firm. No, of course not! It’ll be the “anti-semetic” comment…yeah, that’ll do the trick. That’ll push the appalled investors right out the door! #rollseyes

      And Brandi had the nerve to say that Lisa never told her what to say, or how to act but she still manipulated her. How you dingbat? By telepathy?

      This storyline to make Lisa the “Big Bad Bitch” of the season needs to stop before it goes any further, because we viewers already call shenaigans, Bravo!

      • Birdie11

        July! HI! We finally meet! I TOTALLY agree..Carlton is so full of it…and Brandi…OMG “WHY did I say that?” Oh right…because of LISA! Sure Bravo…that works.

        • julyol1972

          Hi honey! Like Lisa played her subliminal tapes at night and brain-washed Brandi. I get really irritated with her inability to take responsibility for any of her actions. Like Lisa used a cattle prod to make her go after Adrienne last year. Right Brandi!

          • Birdie11

            Lisa Is going to RUIN her!…like she has NO control…LMAO! Lisa is probably watching the show thinking OMG, this is SO stupid. The best part? Faye was RIGHT!!!

            • julyol1972

              Ugh! I already know I’m going to be really pissed atr Brandi, because she’s a smart girl. But this Lisa is a puppet master BS makes her look like an idiot who can’t think for herself. And we all know that is not the case.

              • Birdie11

                Brandi should take offense at being portrayed as a spineless simpleton.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        It’s that time of the season to make Lisa look bad, because they all know that Lisa is the most popular housewife on the show!!! It never fails, and Bravo loves it. One day Lisa will just say “The Hell with it” and walk!!! And I won’t blame her!

  • yenta1957

    Brandi; I’m so over her….can hardly stand to even look @ her altered face anymore, never mind what she has to say.

    Carlton; desperate for a storyline + it’s plain sad that she’s using anti semetism as 1.

    Kim; looked like she had some chemicals floating through her bloodstream when she met up w/ Lisa + Ken.

    Kyle; still trying to throw Lisa under the bus…..how many seasons has she been trying this?

    Joyce; walking candy apple.

    Yolanda; I GET it..I’ve been there + yes it’s hard to send your oldest child thousands of miles away….but time for a new story line w/ you too.

    Lisa; I want your house.
