The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion, Part II: Kim's Drinking, Camille's Craziness Revisited

by at . Comments

After an emotional reunion special, the sun has set on our beloved Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and Andy Cohen is simply bananas over his new golden geese.

Kyle and Kim's season finale fight was relived, Camille displayed her true (borderline insane) colors again and Lisa and Adrienne cemented their fan-favorite status.

How did the women leave things as we begin the long hiatus before Season 2? Our RHOBH critic brings you up to speed on everything that went down right here:

I like (okay, loved) Lisa, Taylor, Kyle, Kim, Adrienne and even Camille. I just want to draw hearts all over Lisa Vanderpump's face. Part One of the Reunion Special was a bit of a bitch-fest compared to last night's conclusion.

We had to beat a dead horse with Kyle and Camille for a sizable chunk of the episode, but after that we moved on to more interesting topics. Such as, you ask?

Cedric's attempt to extort Lisa and Ken for goodness-knows-what, followed by a "where is he now" segment. What a cad. He-who-takes-acting classes and can't be bothered to button his shirt during an interview has the audacity to speak ill of Lisa Vanderpump.

How dare you, Cedric?

You describe your day-to-day life with Lisa as if it's you who's put out. You were the one who shacked up at their house for free! You were the one taking handouts (and a visa, no less) all the while sharpening your teeth to bite the hands that so generously feeds you.

Shame on you, silly man. We know you're quite broken from a very traumatic childhood, but these people are your friends. And as friends they are setting boundaries and being crystal clear about their expectations. Lisa never tried to abandon you.

She tried to help you grow up. And give Ken back his luggage. 

What to discuss next? So much happened last night. There were points in the episode that I did feel Kyle was being a bit of a bully. I know! I know! Camille is slightly crackers and deserves much of what she got, but Kyle has a tendency to discredit EVERYTHING that comes out of Camille's mouth.

Is anyone with me? Lisa sure isn't, but Kim took a veeeeeeery pregnant pause when Andy Cohen asked her if Kyle was a bully. 

Then things got tough. We had to sit through Kim and Kyle's season finale fight. It was so hard to watch, especially hearing crazy things come out of Kim's mouth (again) like "You stole my Goddamn house!" and "You drink all day!"

It was unsettling and unpleasant and shouldn't have been aired. But, here we are talking about it. I was a little weepy myself when Kim and Kyle sat next to each other, because it was clear so much damage had been done to their relationship.

Andy Cohen tried his best to get Kim to talk about that night, but she refused and that was the right thing to do. In the past, idiot housewives would have been happy to share such "hardships" with Andy, but this seems like a serious enough issue that it's best that we not know all the details. Not to mention it's none of our business.

All in all, I walked away from this franchise really liking the ladies of Beverly Hills. Adrienne and Lisa are tied for first, but I can't rank the rest of them. They're all neck-in-lifted-neck for second and third. I could probably put Taylor at the bottom and let the other three duke it out.

So Much To Discuss Instead Of Printing Out Those TPS Reports

  • Camille's New York press tour might have cleaned up her image a bit. She handled herself well against the likes of Barbara Walters and Joy Behar. I didn't shake my fists at her once, which means it was a success.
  • Who is paying for Cedric's acting classes?
  • Hello to the Househusbands!  Mauricio, you're looking delicious. Ken, the teeth look great and I'm dazzled by your diamond man-brooch. Russell, you're still looking drippy. Paul, how is your nose? 
  • Adrienne got a pre-nup and she's not afraid to show it. Smart girl.
  • Kim's stone face was totally edited to be shown when Russell said "I don't have the energy for a twenty year old."
  • FINALLY. Non-husband Nick was addressed. You're good for few things, Andy Cohen, and this was one of them. Kissing your friend's hubby on the lips, then making an "O" face is not appropriate. Don't kiss them on the lips at all. Stick to shaking hands if you find the lips difficult to resist.
  • "You started the fight!" Cohen's right, Taylor. You started the season finale fight. Then you went to Mexico with The Drip.
  • Yes, Kyle did ask for it when crazy Alison the medium shattered the illusion of her happy life. But then it seems the electronic-cigarette picked up a bad signal and read Camille's life instead. You might want to fix those signals, medium.

@genna aka kyle shut the hell up. we know it,s you. bashing kim u just can,t take it can u. you have been all over the gossip sites under different aliaes, posting the same crap kyle has beautiful kids, kyle this kyle that. SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!you lose it every time we try to give kim YOUR SISTER,her shine u just cannot stand it can you? hell has a place for you with your name on it. good luck kim, get it together stop being so afraid kyle open up a can of whip ass on her. by that i mean acting again, thats why she hates you, come on kim, its in you.all the best to you and yours.


Lisa please watch the tapes so you won't be fooled by Kyle. Remain as lovely as you are.
Adrienne you are a classy lady. I believe Kim would be a great friend to you. She may not have the wealth that you have, but consider her sweetness.
Taylor and Kyle are meant to be. Misery loves company. Kyle has bullied her sister the entire show. Review the tapes and watch her coldness. She acted as if her sister should never speak and when she did, watch her looks. What a jealous, manipulative, cold lost person she is. spoken
Kim, distance yourself from Kyle. Your sister that was invited to attend the graduation for Kyle's daughter did not show. Hello!
Camille, Fraiser will see. Sooner or later or later or sooner. Keep you head up. I will whisper a prayer for you.


Did it take the fight in the limo for America to realize how Kyle was????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? Please tell me that Americans are not that slow.


If taylor hurts kim,,by "go'in oklahoma on her ass"
, then I would encourage others to kick Taylors ass!!! someone needs to show that woman a thing a two WHAT A PHONY!!


I like both kim & kyle..i really hope that Kyle learns from her mistake just remember friend could be ex friend, husband could be ex husband but NEVER Sister could be an ex sister NEVER !!!!


Some of these women are on such an ego trip! e.g. Kyle saying that Cedric was looking for his 15min of fame. So it's ok for her and Lisa to get there 15min but not Cedric. And lol saying that Cedric was trying to get in the picture with Paris. Btw on Cedric's facebook page he has what looks like a Halloween photo shoot with Paris who looks very obliging. In fact there are a whole lot of pictures on Cedric's real page and his fan page dating back to 2007 which clearly show that he has a very separate life from Lisa and Ken. Apparently he had left Lisa's house and was brought back to be on the show (most probably so Lisa could use him for her handsome sidekick and snide comments).


I believe Taylor is nothing but a sad little jealous gold digger.
It was so obvious how unfair and downright cruel she has been to Kim, she seems to want to turn everybody against her. She has some real problems.
Kim may have some issues, but who wouldnt, being a single mom. It seems as if she just wants to fit in and truly seems like she wants to spend time with her sister. I don't know if it is just staged for drama or what, but I would be ashamed to behave as Taylor has. Trying to seperate sisters.. Shame on Taylor and that ugly big lipped mouth!


Trying to sell the idea that Kyle is the victim of big bad Camille is ludicrous. Kyles the one who put the whole cast together for Bravo and is clearly in the power seat. And Kyle and Camilles contrived fight was great for the ratings. The thing that has made Kyle despicable and unpopular in most viewers eyes is the cruel and abusive way she treated her sister Kim. It was real, nasty, and people do not like to watch abuse. It's something Kyle will always be remembered for, it's part of HER history now.


these women have WAY toooo much time on their hands. One, they are NOT important or even interesting, and two, get a real job!


I did not like the continued verbal threats and looks Taylor kept sending to Kim. Basically telling her to shut-up if you know what's good for you! She is a money hungary monster. If Kim had money, she would be sucking up to her, too. Also, both Taylor and Lisa seemed to have been "prepped hard" about Kim's drinking problem and this information could only have come from Kyle and was irrelevant to the abuse she recieved from Taylor. I do not believe the attacks Kim suffered from Taylor were related to alcohol and they kept implying that was the cause. Misdirected, if you ask me, to cover for Kyle's anger - justified or not. If you eliminate Kyle from any conversation Taylor had with Kim, you will see there is only one aggressor - Taylor - who is sticking to her plan to attack the weak.
