It’s Yolanda’s turn to shine at her Lyme disease event in NYC!
I’m already over this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills so I don’t even remember where we left off last week.
I’m thinking it was with David Foster whispering about how his marriage will never recover from Yolanda’s illness and he now needs a new, younger wife? (I’m paraphrasing but that was pretty much his sentiments.)
The ladies are now getting ready for Yolanda’s big event. Yolanda tells her makeup artist how she hasn’t had Botox in three years and it’s amazing how the face changes. (It looks exactly the same.)
Erika’s people snap some quick shots of her all dressed up…you know, shots of her laying on the table in the hotel room with her ass in the air. The usual.
Kyle is dressed like a school marm meets Little Orphan Annie.
The event is full of celebrities like Tommy Hilfiger, Rosanna Scotto, and Joe Jonas. Strictly B-list. All three of Yolanda’s kids attend and Gigi gives a beautiful speech honoring her mother.
As Kyle sits in the audience hearing the stories of people with Lyme disease, she feels tremendous guilt for not defending Yolanda when Lisa Rinna said Yolanda had Munchausen’s.
Kyle apologizes to Yolanda for ever doubting her or her children’s illness.
Back in Beverly Hills, Lisa Vanderpump is doing what Beverly Hills parents do…rewarding their underachieving children with brand new cars.
Yup, LVP gifts Max with a Jeep Wrangler, because he’s been able to successfully hold down a job clearing tables at SUR. Where his parents are the bosses. I will say that it’s at least an appropriately modest car to give a child, unlike these idiots that get a Mercedes or a Range Rover for their first car.
Now it’s on to Dubai! We have the obligatory Packing for Our Trip scenes, where Rinna and Eileen fret about their children’s welfare when left with their Dad.
Erika’s “glam squad” is going to Dubai with her. Is that necessary?
Ummm. The ladies’ outfits for the plane. Rinna can’t get over the fact that Erika is wearing sneakers. I can’t get over the fact that Eileen is wearing OVERALLS.
Twenty hours later, they land in Dubai and figure out room arrangements with a bit more grace than the ladies of Real Housewives of New York do on vacation. Kyle and Lisa are sharing a suite, Erika and Kathryn are sharing a suite, while Rinna and Eileen get their own rooms.
The hotel is gorgeous…it is Atlantis, The Palm: Dubai. In case you are ever in the market for a $40,000 per night hotel room in Dubai. Seems worth it, though. The rooms are insane.
Yolanda was unable to go on the trip with the girls, so she packs up her house (it just sold) and hangs with Brandi back in L.A. She updates Brandi about what’s been going on with Rinna.
In Dubai, the ladies dress in mumus and fawn over their rooms. LVP calls herself a mumu convert and will now be known as Mumu Vanderpump. She looks gorgeous, BTW.
The women discuss Yolanda missing out on the trip and how lovely the Lyme disease event in NYC was. Erika says she wishes Rinna had been there, because it would have answered a lot of her questions about Yolanda’s sickness.
Rinna says that she never questioned Yolanda being sick (not true), but that she questions how she uses and displays her illness.
Hey Rinna– when you have a chronic neurological disease, you can use it however you want to. #byeFelicia
Erika and Eileen wonder why Rinna still has these issues with Yolanda. Rinna says she was “enraged” when she saw the Instagram picture of Yolanda with Kim and Brandi. That was not a big deal.
I can’t put my finger on what is wrong with Rinna this season. I really can’t.
Is she that desperate for screen time that she’s willing to have these silly feuds? In the previews for next week, LVP calls Eileen a “dog with a bone,” but I think it’s Rinna who is like a dog with a bone she won’t give up.
GET OVER IT.
