The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Recap: Kim Richards' List of Excuses

by at . Comments

The party in Hawaii continues but in true Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fashion, there's plenty of arguing, drama and tears to go with that wine.

Let's break down all the latest drama in THG's +/- recap!

Kim Richards and Adrienne Maloof

We open with Adrienne and Paul taking a romantic hike along the beautiful island of Lanai. Adrienne admits that it's been years since they've held hands. Minus 9. That's just sad. These two obviously care for one another. They need to start having more alone time.

Kim and Ken finally arrive a day and a half late and that's when we suddenly have a contest for which sister can be more rude. 

First, Kim and Ken don't tell anyone they've arrived. Minus 7. It's simply polite to pick up the hotel phone and let your sister and host know you've finally made it.

But Kyle hears them in the next room and in her best impersonation of a 13 year old girl, runs to put her ear to the wall. She even runs outside in her towel to see if she can spot them from the balcony. Minus 10 because that's just pathetic.

Then Kim and Ken are the last ones to arrive to Mauricio's birthday dinner. Are these two ever on time to anything?

What surprises me is how rude Mauricio is. Yes, your sister-in-law is a inebriated ditz who can't seem to cross the street without being late but why make a scene over dinner. It looks like he's just trying to embarrass them. Minus another 10.

Granted Kim's excuses are getting ridiculous to the point of being funny. I'll even throw her a Plus 8 for the humor in it. First she failed to renew her license, then she can't find her passport, now Ken had to work the day they were scheduled to leave.

Oh, that's right. Ken's retired. Nevermind. Will her dog eat her homework next?

The horrible thing is that this little family feud never ends. Kim and Ken oversleep and don't make the Catamaran trip. Again, they can't get their excuses straight. They didn't set the alarm? No, they didn't hear the wakeup call. 

Or was it they didn't get one? Or maybe they were too stoned to hear anything. Either way Minus 13 for making the entire party sit in the bus and wait for them.

I don't blame the group for leaving without Kim and Ken. At that point they deserved to be ditched but Kyle and Lisa actually jumped over onto their balcony and tried the door.

Goodness knows what they could have walked in on.  I half expect this kind of childishness from Kyle but I didn't expect it from Lisa. Minus 7.

The Catamaran looks lovely. Plus 15 to Camille for actually getting into the water for some snorkeling when the rest of the ladies won't get their hair wet. 

The best part is when Lisa admits that if she had Brandi's ass she'd show it off too. Lisa's finally cutting Brandi some slack. Plus 12. The two of them have a bit of a bawdy sense of humor and it's fun to watch them have a go at one another.

Plus 10 to Paul and Adrienne for trying to be nice and welcoming to Kim and Ken, even if it did make Ken paranoid that they were talking behind his back.

In one boring little insert scene we see Taylor and Dana having lunch back on the mainland. Did anyone else notice that Brandi is invited to Hawaii but Dana's still at home? I guess she's not quite one of the in-crowd just yet.

On Lanai, the ladies argue about Taylor's big revelation. Camille says Taylor's given her this story before. Paul thinks she'll be back with Russell in under two weeks. Kyle and Lisa believe their split is the real deal. 

Glanville, B.

There's another special group dinner and I'm really getting hungry.  But then Mauricio and Kyle start back in about why Kim was late to the island. Minus 12. This is just making all of their other guests uncomfortable. I'm not saying they shouldn't have this argument but can't it wait until it's just family?

Ken's not my favorite guy but I almost couldn't blame him for getting paranoid and then telling Kyle he simply didn't care what she thought and walking out.

Why stay if you're only going to be attacked and Kyle and Mauricio are simply being obnoxious now. Even I don't want to hear it any more.

Thankfully, the episode is over.



I agree that Maurizio was a total a**hole as host of the weekend. Yech. Put your shirt back on buddy and act like an adult. Haughty Kyle is always standing around with her hands on her hips watching and gossiping. She's a matronly shrew. Brandi is great, silly and fun to watch. Good move by Bravo. I like Camille to this year too. She's a lady and looks gorgeous. And Adrienne and Paul are genuinely decent. They balance out the bad and the boring - Kyle, Taylor and annoying Dana. Kims in a class by herself, of course. She's breaking apart and I feel so bad for her. She needs to get far far away from Kyle and Mauricio who don't love her. They have no use for her anymore because they have nothing to gain from her anymore. And it appears to me that's their M.O.


I almost laughed when Taylor said to Dana "I've given everything I can to this marriage." In truth, she should have said "I've TAKEN everything I can get from this marriage". Clearly the money ran out and the show was going to fire her. I can't feel sympathy for "Taylor" because she is not honest about who she is and is so irresponsible she did the biggest harm of the two. She went around telling everyone that Russell broke her jaw and when Russell confronted it Taylor said it was "exaggerated". Everything about her is exaggerated and unreal and I can't stomach watching her anymore. I look up to someone like Rhianna who experienced abuse and handled it with integrity. Now we have this dishonest golddigger Shanna aka "Taylor" using it for profit and popularity while her daughters father is barely cold in his grave.


Did Kyle pay for everyone? If so Kim and Ken should repay, it was very rude to be so late to arrive and then late for dinner and the boat trip.


Nice that Kim and Ken are no longer together. She simple moved in with someone she liked to party with in private that's why kim did not tell anyone for a year about the relationship..there was no relationship.


I don't condone Kim's behavior, but I really couldn't believe the way Kim and Mauricio kept harping on WHY Kim & Ken were late. Who cares why they were late??? They finally showed up and really, it's none of our business why they were late. And who cares if they showed up a day late anyway? It's not like the others couldn't have fun without them. The fact that Mauricio and Kyle had to bring it up at EVERY dinner was annoying. If my sister kept doing that and was trying to humiliate me, I would have gone off on her. I thought Kim handled it pretty well and I laughed when Ken just said "Who cares". Also thought it was funny when Kim kept calling Mauricio Maurice...was she doing that to passively piss him off or was she under the influence so much she just doesn't really know what his name is? Thank you Bravo for not inviting Dana/Pam to Hawaii. No one gives a BLEEP about her and her $25K sunglasses...


Dump Taylor....


Please Bravo....get rid of that psycho... Taylor !!!!!!!


I am not sure why Kyle is so intent on humilating her sister on camera. It's not like Kim didn't confess she didn't have her drivers license and lied about taking care of it on speaker phone and on camera at the very beginning. How many times does she have to crawl? It seems Kyle is only happy when Kim is breaking down in tears the way she did when she confessed she wanted someone to love her. To me Kyle wants to constantly highlight herself as the together sister with the great husband and it's like ok already. Kim is a big enough disaster on her own without Kyle's desperate attempts for praise.


You should have also given Brandi a Plus 12 for saying exactly what is going on with Kim and Ken and having hit the nail on the head! She stated that Kim clearly has some "substance abuse" going on and that Ken is her "enabler"! He is also paranoid and controlling and you could clearly see that from his confrontation of Adrienne and Paul and Kim when he thought they were talking "trash" about him when they weren't! He made himself look like an ass! And Kim even said he was controlling and was "ok" with that when she said, "Ken doesn't like me out of his sight"...If that isn't cause to get some help and therapy then I don't know what is! Brandi is on the money with her assessment of the situation and with Kim and Ken! Bravo to her for being the only housewife to say it!


kyle is horrible.
