I don't know if she's bored, or it's just her "morally corrupt" nature that can't help itself, but for someone who's not even a Housewife, Faye Resnick sure likes to stir up the drama. Tonight on the penultimate episode of this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills she just wouldn't take her hand off of the spoon.
And what was up with Marisa Zanuck? She's the one who really gave Faye the ammunition. Here I thought she was cool, then the first chance she got to throw Brandi Glanville under the bus (whom she'd previously claimed to really like), she heaved her as hard as she could.
She brought up a text from Brandi that suggested she and her husband give each other a "hall pass" to spice up their marriage. Now, Marisa has done plenty of joking and complaining about her marriage, and most likely Brandi was just making what she thought was a playful suggestion. Marissa, however, blew it up into a huge scandal, saying Brandi was insinuating her marriage was in trouble, and that she (and Dean) feel like Brandi flirt with him. Then it turned into one big let's-bash-Brandi fest. Jealous much, ladies?
Yolanda Foster stood up for Brandi, and told Marisa it wasn't cool that she was talking behind her back. "Why are you asking us? Ask Brandi." she told her. When Kyle Richards showed a backbone for once and agreed that she didn't think Brandi would ever go after a married man after all she'd been through, Faye jumped in with her accusations. "Did you really just say that, Kyle?" she shot at her. Then she went on to accuse Brandi of having sex in the bathroom of Kyle's house during the White Party. Stir, stir, stir.
So at Lisa Vanderpump's housewarming party/marriage renewal ceremony, which just so happened to fall on the same day that news of Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif's separation was officially announced, it all came to a head. Yolanda cornered Marisa and told her she thought she should talk to Brandi about what she'd said about her (loving Yolanda these days!). Marisa started back pedaling and squirming, when all of a sudden Faye walked up.
She had no business being there and when asked to leave she would not. Brandi told her she wasn't involved in the subject at hand, and Faye with all the bravado and narcissism in the world shot back, "I'm involved in everything." Gag.
It got worse. She told Yolanda that she was being "led by a very bad girl," which just insulted Yolanda. Then she told Brandi that no matter how many Chanels she borrows, she'll never be a lady. Finally, she went even lower and accused Brandi of breaking up Adrienne and Paul's marriage.
"You put them through hell like you put everyone else through hell," she told her. Even Marisa knew that was out of line. It was simply ridiculous and so very clearly done at the hands of Adrienne. As much as she'd like to blame it on Brandi, it's just way too far of a reach, and so classless to blame the breakup of her marriage on anyone besides the two parties in it. Even if Brandi's bombshell about her using a surrogate did create some tension, it's nothing a strong marriage shouldn't be able to withstand. Blaming someone else is ... what did she call Paul again? Oh yeah, pathetic.
My fear is that Faye is making this pitiful play for relevancy to angle for a permanent spot on the show now that Camille Grammer and Adrienne Maloof aren't coming back. Bravo surely wouldn't be that stupid, would they? While I'm all for drama when it comes to these shows, I'm not for the likes of Faye who hasn't shown us one single redeeming quality. Ever.
Do you think Faye was out of line in attacking Brandi for breaking up Paul and Adrienne's marriage? Would you want to see Faye join the show?
