Maybe I was just over-stimulated from my exciting day of finding out I’m having a boy plus a frenzied Target shopping spree in the hour I had a babysitter, but this episode of Bev felt like a let-down. Just a re-hashing of the same crap from last week.The same Brandi/Mauricio fight carried on some more. Taylor was still being drunk, but this week she moved over to “pitiful” as she slurred about her husband’s suicide and lawsuits to all the uncomfortable dinner guests within earshot. Even Camille wanted to get away from her. I love how Yolanda (always sober because “There’s nothing more ugly than a drunk woman”) just speaks her mind. Especially because it’s usually aimed at Taylor. This time Yolanda rightly told Taylor to stop talking about herself and this had nothing to do with her.
In a surprising new alliance, Brandi and Marisa are becoming BFFs! Love it! Marisa seemed like a prim and proper movie-producer’s wife when she appeared a few episodes ago, but she is turning out to be a fun little midlife-crisis-waiting-to-happen! If Andy Cohen is listening, IN with Marisa, OUT with Taylor! (Sidenote: was Brandi being set up with Marisa’s brother? Or is he gay?)
Mauricio’s fall from my graces continued this week as he rather insincerely tried to give Ken a bottle of gin at the art gallery opening. Ken seemed confused, as was I; shouldn’t Mauricio’s peace offering be for Brandi, the woman he accosted at his own dinner party? But no matter. No one does dismissive better than Lisa Vanderpump, and she left Mauricio and his apology alcohol in her cold British wake as she left the party. What happened to my beloved Mauricio?? Has fame gotten to his head?? He has turned into such a jerk this season. Although it’s kind of nice to see Kyle scrambling to explain away his dickish behavior, because she always pointed out what an amazing, wonderful, perfect man he was.
More pointlessness: Yolanda decorates Mohamed’s house with (what else?) lemons. She also gives a terrified Hispanic worker an extremely poor English lesson. Kyle and Faye go mannequin-shopping for Kyle’s new store. Kyle & Mauricio eat fruit with Adrienne & Paul (who still don’t want to talk about this “lie” Brandi told that is clearly not a lie). Kooky Kim has a psychic come to her house (that looks like it was decorated by my 92-year-old Nana. Maybe Kim should hire Faye Resnick Designs). So, are we at all worried about Kim’s sobriety? I, myself, can’t tell the difference between Drunk Kim and Sober Kim half the time.
Next week the ladies go to Vegas. I’m sure they will keep it classy.
