Part two of the Beverly Hills gang's jaunt to Palm Springs definitely brought with it some drama. We picked up right where we left off last week. Yolanda Foster had just released her harpies upon Kyle Richards' tender flesh. Now I'm not one to leap to the defense of any Richards, but dude, come on, the woman has had a tough time lately what with all the cruel banter about her marriage in the press.
Luckily, this was something every single cast member (with the exception of Brandi Glanville who was too busy doing her best impression of Dorothy Parker to notice anything) recognized and they all backed off. Discounting, of course, Kim Richards, who chose that moment to rail pointlessly at Lisa Vanderpump. Kim -- leave it alone. Pump's Gonna Pump. I mean, her bone of contention was that Lisa was "dismissive" of her. This is akin to me announcing that the sky is blue and that Bravo makes excellent television programs: Just straight facts, yo.
More from The Stir: Kyle Richards Alienates Yet Another Friend
I don't get why Bravo has waited all until this season to start pushing the giant button marked LESBIAN EXCITEMENT FOR SUPER HAPPY FUN TIME. (It's a very large button apparently.) In Miami we had the exploits of Joanna Krupa and Lisa Hochstein. In Beverly Hills we've got Brandi and Carlton Gebbia. Brandi was psyched to share about her "friendship kiss" with Carlton to her smooching partner's horror. Carlton had a nice, civil pow-wow with Brandi wherein she was essentially like, "Dude. Seriously? Private." It was maybe the most real and adult friend-to-friend discussion the show has ever seen.
It was the last moment of calm for the episode's duration. The grievances were aired, but mania remained. The girls proceeded to make eyes at each other over Brandi's excessive drinking, LOL it up at the squirrels that seemed fixated on Kyle's ass, and collectively WTF Kim for giving a prayer of thanks to a trash can.
Just when all the squirrel stroking fun seemed like it would never end, Brandi got a call that her house had been broken into and her dog Chica was gone. Her reaction squeezed my heart meat. Instinctively I went to check on my cats. This wasn't challenging since one was draped on either of my shoulders like Gaga-esque epaulets. Brandi can be unpredictable but she's not a bad person -- no one deserves to get that call!
Does Brandi get her dog back? I would know if I were a better entertainment report/cared enough to Google, but I'm not/don't. Who's your fave Housewife this season? I am team Carlton.
