'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Reunion Recap: The Ladies Want to Take Lisa Vanderpump Down

lisa vanderpumpOn Monday night, the tanned, toned, and Botoxed ladies of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills sat down for their annual reunion. And as suspected, the perfectly manicured claws came out. Brandi and Kyle attacked Lisa. Lisa attacked Brandi and Kyle. Brandi attacked Joyce and told her she looked like a figure skater in her sparkly dress. The whole thing was a hot mess, and I felt like I needed a Xanax once it was over.

Let's discuss.

First of all, I thought Brandi and Joyce were cool? Last we saw, they were getting along swimmingly in Puerto Rico -- what's changed since then? During the reunion, they really seemed like they despised each other, completely rehashing all the issues they had with one another during the season. Brandi also took the opportunity to remind the world that she's "the least racist person on the planet" and she has friends and dates dudes "from all different backgrounds." Don't forget, 'kay guys? Anyway!

Perhaps the most interesting part of the reunion was when Andy asked Lisa if she was able to dish it out, but not take it. Big dramatic pause from all her costars, who clearly think that's the case. Lisa couldn't come out and say, "Yes, Andy. That's exactly right." But her hesitation and mannerisms and general demeanor during that time more or less said that she knows that that is the case. Baby steps. Oh, and also, Brandi more or less tried to insinuate that off-camera Lisa's a lush.

Overall, it was a typical reunion with lots o' ladies talking over one another and rehashing issues we all otherwise thought were squashed. It was slightly boring and grating to watch, but one thing definitely is for sure: Lisa is most certainly the odd man out.

Lastly, Yolanda's hair looks awesome. 

What did you think of the RHOBH reunion?

I hope Carlton does not come back at all! And I agree, Yolanda's hair looks fab!

Love Yolandas hair. She has never looked better!  That orange dress was such a great color choice

I honestly don't understand why people don't challenge Brandi more. Her behavior is reprehensible, and so incredibly childish. She says the most disgusting, inappropriate and hurtful things to people with little or no provocation, and then shrugs it all away with "That's just the way I am!" as though she finds herself delightful and thinks others will as well. But if anyone calls her on her crap or says anything even mildly critical to her, she has a major meltdown and sobs about all the hardship in her life, and how could anyone be so mean, yada yada yada. So it's kind of rich that Brandi would go after Lisa for not being able to take what she dishes out when the very best example of that on the show is Brandi herself. (By the way, it made me nuts when Brandi said she paid $9.99 to look up and confirm that Lisa used to live in the Valley. Lisa said she never lived in the Valley, but that they've owned or own properties there, so naturally her name is going to be listed on those properties. It doesn't mean she's ever lived at those addresses. That fact seemed to get glossed (or screamed) over at the reunion, which I thought was really unfair.)

Why?!?!?!?! Does no one acknowledge what a huge biotch Carlton is???? She is a disgusting, hypocritical, judgy C U Next Tuesday.

I think Carlton is such a low class person, I think she feels because she married into money that it gives her class, well guess what, it does not. She's phony, weird with all her sex toys, (which by the way she keep in her house where her children live) the way she touches other females on the show, her kiss with Brandi, (not that Brandi is any better) she should just be off the show, I can't see her contribution to the show! And I think that Joyce is a more positive role model for young women who watch the show. She has a great deal of class which on a few occasions she lost but only because she was sooo unjustly being attacked by the likes of Brandi and Carlton. I hope she is kept on the show, I look forward to seeing her in the new season.

Joyce Your Gorgeous And Classy The Other Witches Are Just JEALOUS. God Bless Hang In There!

It is my personal belief that this entire season has been spun as a personal attack against Lisa. The ladies ugly, green heads of jealousy have reared all season long. They became jealous of her being the first house wife on DWTS and it seems to me began plotting their attacks while Lisa was busy learning the art of ball room dancing. Their issues with her have either been futile or made up.The back stabbing and jealousy can be seen from the first episode. Then, they attack Ken when he gets fed up with their bs. Yoland showed how truly jealjealous she was during her lunch with Mohammed. Yolanda couldn't stand that Mohammed would think of Lisa as the gracious and charismatic woman that she is bc in Yolanda's mind that is her spot on the social register. All of the HWs, except for the newbies, have tried to tarnish America's view of Lisa as their sweetheart. I'm not buying it. I hope they can bring on castmates that will allow Lisa to be the Lisa that I have gotten to know and actually enjoy watching. Their jealousy ruined this season.
