We pick up at Mauricio’s function, and it is a tornado of events happening. We have the fur vest wearing Brandi shaking from Paul’s attack. Kyle flipping her lid that Kim chose Mauricio’s party to tell Adrienne and Paul what was said about them by Brandi. Mauricio trying to not get on anyone with money’s bad side and Taylor trying her hardest to make it all about her. Brandi decides to exit but not before Adrienne leaves while yelling that Brandi is a drug addict and full of drugs. Who has a defamation suit?
Kyle tries to verbally smack Kim around for her timing, but Kim, in one of her finest moments ever, shuts her down and I swear I heard a collective cheer across the nation from Bravo viewers.
Ken having fun at Lisa’s expense was humorous. She was a saint throughout it all. The flower’s Ken received from Brandi were gorgeous and gives us one more clue how close the three have become. I enjoy watching that trio.
Kim explaining why the entire fiasco was Kyle’s fault had me wanting to cross stitch a pillow with “You lit a fuse” and I am loving this Kim as much as I loved the Kim in Return to Witch Mountain in 1979. Kim’s honesty about her trepidation in going to Vegas had me shaking my pom poms cheering for her success.
Did anyone else hear faint Debbie Downer Wah Wah Wah music, as we watched Kyle and Mauricio chat? Anyone else notice that this is the first time we hear Mauricio talk so unkindly about someone and that someone happens to not be capable of putting money in his pocket? Even though Kyle resolved the guest issue with her husband, she has to have the same conversation with Faye at lunch. Note to Faye, most of us learned that the first to present his case always seems right, you obviously missed that simple lesson. Way to hear one side and have instantaneous convictions on who is right and who is wrong. By the way, who are you?
Onward to Yolanda working out. She goes hard. She looks incredible and I have found nothing to dislike about this chick yet.
Brandi shows up to Lisa’s and she is in dire need of support. She has been picking at her face she is so distraught. They come to the conclusion that a story in the tabloids the very next day after the fight is compliments of Adrienne Maloof. Lisa sympathizes because she has been on the receiving end of Adrienne’s wrath. Brandi is worried what the rich Maloof’s can do to her and worried things will get ugly. Lisa thinks they already are ugly and Brandi says they can get worse. From the whispers, I think we can assume it does. Ken shows us his super sized scar. Brandi asks Lisa if they have had sex yet. Lisa replies no but not from his lack of trying. Love them but need a moment to wipe that visual out of my brain.
The night of Kyle’s dinner party has arrived. We get our first introduction to Marissa. I just want to tackle Brandi down on the walkway to Kyle’s front door and tell her not to go inside. Run! Alas, I can’t and she enters.
I did cheer up when I realize Kim didn’t invite Kyle to Vegas. I also added Brandi’s, Get ten people in a room that love Adrienne. Good luck to my favorite quote list.
It takes mere moments for the Brandi is wrong train to leave the station. Faye fancies herself the conductor and I’m confused on who made her the new Emily Post. When did sending flowers become the absolute proof you are apologetic and if you don’t then you are absolutely not apologetic. As vile as Faye is at this dinner party, Kyle is worse. A hostess that allows a guest to be treated so poorly is inexcusable. Marissa tries to get a word in on Brandi’s behalf but Faye isn’t having it. She rudely interrupts and continues to spew unkind words. Lisa tries to intervene and Kyle shuts her down because her opinion is meaningless because she doesn’t like Adrienne. Faye and Kyle’s behavior is mind-boggling. Brandi excuses herself and leaves.
The good thing about me being frozen in horror staring at my TV for 10 minutes after the episode was over, I got to see another example of a housewife shaking and crying with absolutely no sign of a tear. How do they do that?
