Let’s Discuss: RHOBH Reunion Part 2

February 6, 2012 |By Continue Reading

Well well well what an intense episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills part 2 reunion! So much drama so little time! I tweeted throughout the episode and thought I should probably blog instead so we can all discuss our opinions on tonight’s episode. Keep in my mind this is MY opinion and hopefully you can respect mine just like I will always respect yours even if we don’t agree!

I’m not going to do a recap. Instead I’ll write about each individual

Kyle Richards: I never thought I’d ever be bothered by Kyle after watching her on season 1. My oh my how things change. I still do like Kyle but dang talk about being jealous! It’s clear she was jealous every time Lisa stood up for Brandi. I mean Kyle constantly sticks up for Taylor, why can’t Lisa stick up for others? Kyle was so thrown off when Lisa and Taylor were friends so quickly but wouldn’t you be happy knowing your two closest friends finally are becoming friends? I’m kind of sick of Kyle acting so “classy.” She felt so “trashy” after saying one swear word but she didn’t feel trashy when she acting mean and jealous all season. C’mon Kyle! You’re beautiful, you have stunning children a life many wish they had! Cut out the insecurities and look in the mirror! Game night? Kyle was clearly trying to ignore game night as much as she can and I feel like she was using Brandi as her target.

Adrienne Maloof: She kept quiet most of the episode and I respect her as a business women but her and Lisa both need to move on!

Lisa Vanderpump: I’m loving Lisa this season. I respect the fact that she doesn’t talk behind people’s back and if anything will say it to your face. That’s how things SHOULD be. Lisa said she was “mortified” after actually watching ‘Game Night.’ Kyle clearly got angry after hearing Lisa say that but Kyle tends to dish it so she should be able to handle it. Game night was mortifying and I was surprised by how they only spoke about it for a few minutes.

Taylor Armstrong: I get that she was abused and I don’t agree with it! I want to make that clear but I also don’t agree with the decisions Taylor has been making since her husband killed himself. It’s like she didn’t even let him get buried before she started writing a tell-all book. Again I don’t agree with the abuse but I do get annoyed with Taylor. How can she say how she “loves Russell terribly” and immediately call him a manipulator and so openly talk about the “text messages.” How come we’ve never heard what Taylor said or responded to those “text messages.” It’s clear through out the season that Taylor get’s a little craycray so imagine what went on behind closed doors. Why was Taylor on Brandi’s case? Can you imagine Taylor acting that way with any of the other girls? Why was she so threatened? Oh yeah because Brandi was saying exactly what we’ve all been thinking. Maybe I have such a huge problem with Taylor because she hasn’t taken Russell’s two oldest children into consideration. Imagine being in high school and your father dying and hearing that his “wife” is writing a tell-all book to “help others.” I’ve said this once and I’ll say it again, there are 3 sides to a story. His. Hers. And the truth. We just haven’t heard Russell’s side and unfortunately won’t be able too…

Brandi Glanville: I like Brandi Glanville. Shoot. I love Brandi Glanville and I’m NOT afraid to admit it. I think she makes the show more exciting. She call’s out people when others are afraid too. I don’t agree with everything Brandi says or does but in the end of the day I do think she is awesome! Brandi doesn’t hold back and I respect that! She never tries to cover up for things she’s done and instead admits to it! Go Brandi! She doesn’t make excuses like other housewives do (ahem) Go Brandi! You are killing it!

Camille Grammer: Well she’s obviously changed this season and for the better! I appreciated how she said when things were wrong but kept her cool about it. I hope to see her next season

So. Let’s Discuss! What did you think about part 2 of the RHOBH reunion?

I do agree with all of the ideas you’ve presented for your post. They’re really convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for beginners. May just you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

I think I know why Camille didn’t participate too much this season. She’s in the middle of a mean divorce right now and anything she says or does is being recorded by Kelsey Grammer’s Attorney. I think she was afraid she would do something to cause her to lose custody of her children. It certainly makes sense why she would run and hide and be so reclusive.

I am with you on the Brandi and Camille thoughts Roxie. I like all the girls except for Taylor. Still on the fence about that one. She’s too back-and-forth for me to like or dislike at this point.

The housewives know Taylor better than all of you. They have seen more of her and heard more of her lies and truths and they believe she was abused. So, that’s the end of the story. All your fables and inventions are just that, fables and inventions spun out of the desperate need to blame the victim and deny the crime. I understand, we do it all the time to victims of every sort. Your house is flooded, you should not have built it there. You are raped, you should not have worn that short dress or gone shopping at… Read more »

How double standard that Kyle is a mean bully when she’s trying to be honest. But when Brandi or Lisa are being mean bullies they’re just “telling it like it is.”

Just because you attribute your mean comments to being honest and telling it like it is doesn’t make you NOT a mean person, FYI.

I would also add more to comment which is I think Brandi is well out there she is not intouch with reality at all. I like her don’t get me wrong but she is kinda strange like a little of Kelly ( RHWNYC) not completely like Kelly just a touch of Kelly’s craziness lol.

Adrienne- The more she speaks, the less I like her. The way she treated Lisa, disgusting.
Kyle- She disgusts me completely now and there is no coming back. Her stupid, arrogant faces during the reunion was the icing on the bad behavior cake.
Taylor and Kim- Disgusting on every level that there is.
Camille – Like her now.
Lisa – Love her now.
Brandi – Loved her but seeing that she is friendly with Melissa Gorga, only like her now.

You and I briefly exchanged tweets last night, so we know where each other stands re: Taylor! Thanks for seeing my point and I absolutely see yours. Love me some Brandi too. She needs her own damn show. LOL Girl gets props for calling Kim out on her blatantly obvious addiction problems while everybody else sat around all season trying to pretend Kim was just…happy…or sleepy….or had too much caffeine, or whatever reason they could come up with to justify her behavior. I loved Camille this season. I like Lisa too most of the time. She’s never funnier than when… Read more »

After the 2nd part of the reunion last night, I have to say my opinion of some of the HWs certainly changed. Kyle was my fave season 1, but now she seems like a mean, insecure high school girl. Lisa backed Kyle up after game night (although Lisa wasn’t even there, which I thought was wrong of Lisa to do without all of the facts), but when Adrienne constantly attacked Lisa with petty things, Kyle heard crickets. Kyle should know she was wrong in how she treated Brandi. Don’t get mad when game night is brought up; it’s the reunion… Read more »

I’m sorry, but I think Brandi has lost some touch with reality. How in the world does she think SHE is responsible for Kim getting help?! She did absolutely nothing but humiliate, embarrass and hurt Kim and her family when she threw out that accusation of Kim being on crystal meth. I’m glad Kyle told her how it was. I agree with everyone who says Brandi is a trouble maker and pot stirrer. It’s funny how a lot of the *drama* out at the reunion came directly from Brandi’s mouth: Adrienne doesn’t like Lisa. Russell and Taylor sent the email.… Read more »

Agree with you.

I have lost a lot of respect for Lisa. Brandi kissing Lisa’s butt, now Lisa is returning the favor by defending Brandi for her dirty mouth. It was so obvious that the only thing that comes to mind is, probably Brandi and Lisa planned how they will act at the reunion and made a pact to back each other up.
Didn’t Brandi post a photo on twitter of a bull mastiff and quoted she is having lunch with Ken? I find that so sickening. That is the true definition of BULLY.

Brandi is a vile, celebrity wannabe, trailer trash. She disguises into a sweet, honest girl who says it like it is, but she is the biggest bully of them all. Admitting to your behavior, but feeling proud of it is not called being real. It is called being a mean spirited b****!
And after feeling proud of accusing Kim of meth use because in her world it’s called doing Kim a favor, Kim needs to come out and put that girl back in her place.

Linda

I like how Brandi says she’s sorry for the comment she made about Kim but the next thing that comes out of her mouth is “I’m right because Kim is in rehab.”

Brandi is a bully and a hypocrite, plain and simple.

Great blog & agree with most of your opinions!!!!! Those who don’t can always ‘agree to disagree’ 🙂 I love Lisa & Brandi…..They are great fun together & understand each others humor…… JMO, but I believe that Kyle’s jealously has been in place, for the camera, since S1. She definately has to be the center of attention & with other personalities she’s been able to hold her ground but with Brandi…..she can’t & I love it!!!!! The other cast members, for me, are ‘just there’…… Two of my fav’ Housewives franchises is B.H. & O.C. …… Guilty pleasures……:)

Was anyone else bothered when Brandi was recounting how she ran into Russel and he said he always liked Camille and Taylor made him send the e-mail…and Taylor snapped back, “Didn’t you slash Eddie’s tires?!” Huh?! What does that have to do with Russel & Camille? Nothing. Clearly Taylor was trying to deflect the conversation away from her and any sympathy for Russel. And she did it in such an angry manner and brought out a piece of rumor at that point. That showed me, once again, Taylor’s anger and manipulating techniques. Instead, if Taylor was telling the truth, she… Read more »

Taylor was so lame and dramatic last night. Her attempt to act like Brandi actually meant “I will kill you” as a legitimate death threat was so desperate. Her creepy “knowing” grin was forced. I don’t know why the other women and fans are acting like no one can criticize Taylor is so lame! She should get off TV then!!

OK this season was just crazy! Taylor omg what is wrong with this woman Im sorry but I don’t feel bad for her at all sorry I just don’t and I won’t ever. She is a disgusting human being on all levels and her child should be taken away from her because she needs help. When Russell was hanging why did the police have to keep telling Taylor get her out of here non stop! Why didn’t Andy bring that up and why didn’t he bring up how Taylor wrote a book practically the day he died but attacked Teresa… Read more »

Tons of comments and I haven’t read them all but has anyone brought up the fact that Adrienne advised Taylor to join the show to try to stop the abuse? This really didn’t make sense to me for many reasons. #1 being that line of reasoning is illogical. #2 Paul was the main person doubting the abuse, he actually does charity work with abuse victims. #3 Why not advise her to go to the POLICE? #4 Taylor was not a “housewife” in the traditional sense she had/has her own businesses and income. #5 If it really was about money, why… Read more »

I think Kennedy deserves the thruth about her father but she will never get it from her mother. She might be young but sh probably seen more than anyone thinks she has. I believe Taylor was abused but I also believe that she has mental issues and that poor little girl is gonna need alot of help. She has that look I’n her eyes of a very sad little girl. The strange thing about Taylor is she lies even when she doesn’t have too that’s why people have a hard time believing her.

Brandi said she ran into Russell and he said Taylor made him send the email. She also said in an interview that Taylor was with Russell when he sent the email. The only problem with that is that Taylor was with Lisa in Vegas when the email was sent. And he sent it at 1 in the morning or something after Taylor didn’t answer her phone. I don’t believe Russell when he said Taylor made him send the email. Actually I don’t believe Brandi. I’m sure she ran into him and they talked but I bet she’s spinning the story… Read more »

or Russell lied to Brandi. Obviously he was a liar, considering his business dealings. Maybe he was looking to make money off Camille by suing her. Maybe that was going to be his next scam. I thought it was interesting that he placed a brief case next to him when he hung himself, but left no note

I cant get passed Brandi saying she ran into Russle and him saying Taylor made him send the email. I believe she made him send the one to Lisa as well. Remember that dinner they had with Kyle and maurico? I dont believe Taylor.. i just dont.

Yeah, Kyle is such a mean girl and the big bad wolf. Not. It’s ridiculous how everyone on this blog loves Brandi who acts EXACTLY like Kyle. Brandi thinks that just because she does/say something mean and owns up to it then it makes her “honest” and not a mean girl. News flash Brandi: you’re just as much of a mean bitchy bully as Kyle is. Brandi wants to blame EVERYTHING on Kyle. Um, why is kyle at fault when Kim hid the crutches and Kyle wasn’t in the room when brandi was trying to leave? If Brandi didn’t attack… Read more »

I am so glad that Brandi called Trailor out on her book of bullshit. She couldn’t drain any more money out of him while he was alive, so she figured she would get what she set out to get from him….money…….when he was dead. The man cannot defend himself. Her way of helping her daughter to cope is to write a book about what a horrible monster her father was. She wrote her book so fast because the longer she waited the more abused women would die! Don’t you know that? As an expert survivor of domestic abuse she has… Read more »

I know that we don’t all have to agree on what HW we like and our takes on certain situations. But I don’t understand how anyone can honestly justify abuse against a woman. Is it because Russell is dead now and can’t speak for himself? Let’s think about this. Taylor’s behavior since we met her – possibly even before that – has been strange. But a woman who is being brutalized will act strangely. I know because I was one of them. Her desperation for friends, her constantly changing stories, her erratic behavior…all of that is symptomatic of someone who… Read more »

She didn’t do any of the name changes when she even lived in California, so I don’t understand your comment… I understand people changing their names, I understand people using a “stage name”… Taylor/Shana changed her name to try to extort people and if you need proof of that GOOGLE it…

I don’t necessarily believe what Taylor says. I just don’t have enough evidence to condemn the woman. She may be a cold, calculating grifter who is dancing on Russell’s grave. She might be a woman who’s driving force in everything is money, no matter how it’s obtained. She might have been these things and still been abused. Or she might be making up the abuse. The simple fact is, I don’t know enough to judge. That doesn’t make me an imbecile. I completely understand the ‘hate’ for Taylor, and I am not a fan HOWEVER-I am willing to listen to… Read more »

Lisa really is a class act. She was always direct with Taylor, and Taylor was always desperate and unfair to her. Instead of ignoring her, Lisa chose compassion – and was not rewarded for it. Kyle should know by now you don’t have to stir the pot to have the integrity to be loyal to a friend in the face of false allegations. And Kyle was a mean girl to Brandi. Adrienne is petty and has no humor. Get over a shoe rhyme. Taylor has been an insecure instigator since Season 1. I agree she’s been abused – I also… Read more »

I disagree with Adrienne. I think she started drama where there was none and just became a bitch all of a sudden. She disappointed me. I can’t decide whether I love or loathe Brandi, but she is definitely entertaining! She says everything I’ve been thinking and isn’t afraid to speak the truth. Kyle was also disappointing. I don’t know if I like her anymore. I have nothing to say about Taylor, she disgusts me. The only sane ones are Lisa and Camille.

Thanks again Rox! Love the blog so much.

When you have a husband, as I do, you also have access to his computer and phone, as I do mine. Meaning, there is proof that Russell sent e-mail or text to the women. There is no proof that Taylor sent e-mail or text to the women using Russell’s computer or phone. Get the point? As a wife living under the same roof as her husband, each spouse has full access to each other’s belongings.

Rosalie Marie,

I wouldn’t put it past Taylor to have done just that. When she is finished sending e-mail or text, all she had to do is delete it from the computer and phone so her husband doesn’t see she used his communication line.

I want to just comment on Taylor (I have lots of thoughts about the rest of the women but all this Taylor talk is really what has me bothered right now). Let me preface that I am looking at this from the point of view of someone who has also been in an extremely abusive relationship. This may cause me to be biased against Russell who, unfortunately, is not able to speak for himself any longer. However, I DO realize this and I realize that there are three sides to every story. That being said… There is no denying that… Read more »

I want to add: -the idea that Taylor should not be writing the book because Kennedy doesn’t need to ever know any of this about her father… Kennedy will know eventually. If she ever watches RHOBH when she grows up, she will know. If she ever Googles her father, she will know. And what exactly would Taylor be protecting Kennedy from by NOT writing about it? The truth? Wouldn’t it be better for Kennedy to hear something that bad from her own mother than from random internet sources when she Googles her dad in ten years? -I do think something… Read more »
