The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Recap, Part II: Let the Brandi Glanville Bashing Begin!

by at . Comments

After last week's Part I, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion show continued with more drama last night as Brandi and Taylor join us for the full hour.

Let's recap it all with THG's +/- review!

Last week they took shots at Lisa but now it's time for Brandi Glanville bashing. We like Brandi. Yes, she's brash but she's also fun, entertaining, and says what she thinks to someone's face instead of behind their back. There's a concept.

No wonder she doesn't quite fit in with the Beverly Hills crowd. Plus 20.

Brandi in the House

Brandi hit the scene this season with high heels, no bra, and even on crutches she had legs that wouldn't quit. So being younger and prettier meant that she immediately made enemies and it was wonderful entertainment. Plus 10.

So Andy takes us back to Game Night where Kim and Kyle's mean sides came out and Brandi called Kyle a bitch and threatened to kill Kim. Ah, good times.

At least Kyle's owning her mean girl title that night so Plus 8.

Even Lisa admits she was mortified when she saw the actual footage. She backed Kyle but hadn't known how she acted. 

But Kyle's quick to backtrack when Brandi calls her on hiding her crutches. She didn't do it, her sister did. Yeah, but she still walked off leaving Brandi sitting there not knowing where her crutches were.

That was simply childish and she's not owning up to that one. Minus 10.

Brandi admits she lost her temper but won't apologize for it. She was ganged up on and since Kim's now in rehab she obviously wasn't completely wrong about what she said. Kyle glares at her and says she was wrong about the meth.

These two women can smile all they want and say it's water under the bridge but they HATE one another. I love it. Plus 12.

Andy Cohen Mediates

Andy brings up Brandi's Hawaiian bikini. Why would she wear that outfit around a bunch of married men? Brandi says we're lucky she had a top on at all.

Especially considering the Xanax she took on her way there which she wishes hadn't happened but she can't take it back now.

Then Andy asks Taylor if her lips have gotten smaller or if they're just getting used to them. Obviously Andy's been watching too many Daffy Duck cartoons because Taylor's lips are huge. She says they are implants and they aren't going anywhere.

Lip implants? Seriously? Minus 16. It just sounds frightening.

Then Taylor says maybe they look smaller because she's gained some weight. True, she looks less anorexic than normal. Plus 5.

But Taylor's definitely drank the Kool Aid on the I hate Brandi side of the couch. Meow! She gets catty quick when Brandi jumps into her conversation. She even throws out a dig about hearing that Taylor slashed ex Eddie Cibrian's tires.

Another Plus 7 for Brandi who admits she did it. Kyle's completely horrified but I'm with Lisa on this one. Your husband cheats on you in a very public way ... yeah, I can see being angry enough to take a knife to a tire.

It's not like she let him drive the thing afterwards.

Then Brandi throws Taylor's upcoming book back in her face. I'll give it a Minus 5 but almost reluctantly. Taylor claims it's because so many women die from domestic abuse which is true and maybe someone can learn from Taylor's story.

Taylor Armstrong is Pissed

Taylor cries that she didn't have the financial means to leave Russell and now she's stuck with his debts. At least she's got a lucrative reality TV gig and someone willing to pay her for her book. She's got more options than most.

What about Taylor's assertions that there could be more to her husband's suicide? He obviously had a lot of secrets. It's hard to tell if this is for real or just more Taylor drama. Minus 5.

Then we're on to Camille who made the biggest turn around this year. Obviously once she dumped the dead weight she became a nicer person. Plus 9.

We flash back to all of the Kelsey bashing. "Big hands, big feet, big disappointment." There was also something about scraping barnacles which is too icky to think about.

Camille and Brandi have definitely bonded. Andy asks why Camille has kept her married name and she says it's less complicated to keep it since that's her children's name. Solid answer. Plus 8.

When he then asks Brandi why she changed back to her maiden name she says there were just too many Mrs. Cibrians running around. So funny. Plus 10.

So is Camille too boring? Brandi too slutty? Could there be a murder plot behind Russell's suicide? And will we get some real answers about Kim's addictions or just more fluff? Tune back next week for part three of the never-ending reunion show.

EPISODE TOTAL: +53! SEASON TOTAL: +192!

Why, oh why didn't Andy ask Trailor about her OTHER ex-husband, Mr. Sipes. Didn't she tell us all on RHOBH that Russel was her first & only husband??? He could have nailed her on at least 50 other lies too. Would LOVE to hear from Mr. Sipes & his thoughts on his ex-wife! Kyle is a fat, little jealous tart that needs to have her crater face sanded, Kim exhibited ALL the tell-tale signs of crystal meth use in that limo ride with that fine catch, Ken! Love Lisa, Camille & especially Brandi, Muaaaah!

Kyle needs to back off from everyone. She needs to check her own snide mouth. Taylor isn't playing victim anymore....now she is trying to help others...she needs to go into therapy. Cannot stand her. When she askd Brandi about slashing tires, (which came from out of no where), I think she was trying to put Brandi on the defensive. Then both she and Kylewere shocked when Brandi admitted it. Bravo for Brandi. Brandi just tells it likeit is. As far as Kim is concerned, she still sounds like she is on something. Tends to slur her words and can't keep her thoughts straight. Dump her for sure. Also find some one else to take Dana's place. That girl needs to be committed. She is pathetic.

This season showed how mean, vicious and backstabbing Kyle is towards anyone that she is threatned by. For a 50 year old woman, this is behavior of a middle school mentality. Perhaps, It looks like Kyle never evolved and grew emotionally since grade school. Her behavior is so shameful I don't know how her kids can hold their heads up in school or Maurico can conduct his businesss when everyone knows that Kyle is such a mean vicious bully, what a disgrace for middle aged woman.

Kyle treated Lisa so poorly it's hard to believe considering Lisa gave Maurico the business to sell her mansion and Kyle benefited $1Mit from it. What kind of gratitude is that? I originally thought Kyle was angry at Lisa for not using Maurico to sell her mansion which explained Kyle's horrible behavior toward Lisa. Now knowing Lisa gave Maurico the business makes Klye's behavior totally unforgivable. What kind of person does that? Obviously someone so consumed by jealousy and is so non loyal that Lisa should dump Kyle as a friend. Maurico shouldn't worry about his competitors since Kyle single handedly will bring down Maurico' s business with her catty and vicious behavior towards his clients. It was Camille last season and Lisa this season. Who would want to do business with this type of inappropriate and unprofessional behavior displayed by Kyle. What a fool!

There's a great article on the Daily Beast by Diane Dimond that not only gives Russell a fair shake with testimony from his friends and family, but factually dissects Taylors abuse stories and how she can't keep the details straight. Rhianna was an honest spokesperson against domestic violence. This woman Shanna/Taylor is an exploitive and dishonest mercenary. She likes getting falling-down-drunk and is a very aggressive woman, make no mistake. A weak victim? Who buys this stuff? This woman is dark, dishonest, alcohol abusing, extremely aggressive.

Brandi slut and likes to stir the pot loves drama horrible mother, Taylor victim and sad to watch, Kyle funny and has the best marraige and relationship with her children. Adrain snob and cold to her husband, Lisa tough, straight shooter and the former Mrs Cramer to cold and to much calulation in words to being real, but when she is relaxed she is funny and lovable... stop acting a part and just be you...Paul I must say is my fav he is funny and lovable.

Did anyone catch when Brandi made the statement to Adrienne that her marriage was 'questionable' and Adrienne replied with 'yes, we're married'? Hmmmm! Sounds like something going on there that Adrienne doesn't want us to know about. I luv, luv, luv Brandi! Can't stand Kyle and Taylor. Kyle is such a jealous, mean-spirited, person and Taylor is as fake as fake can be. Lisa scored a lot of points with me when she admitted to seeing the footage of game night and realized how Brandi had been bullied by Kyle and her gang. I hope Camille stays on the show as she became so likeable this season.

Kyle is insecure of all women younger, prettier or who have a better body than she does. That's why she fought with Camile and now Brandi. Andrienne is insecure of people smarter than her. That's why she bickers and argues constantly with her husband Paul ( a intelligent plastic surgeon) and Lisa who is the smartest wife of them all. That's why she also let's her help bad mouth Lisa in front of her. Who let's their Employees bad mouth their friends? Taylor is just flat outs insecure. The strong confident women are Lisa, Camile, and Brandi.

It's time for Taylor/Shana to leave the RHOBH. She has nothing to offer but her version of abuse of a dead man who cannot defend himself. Taylor is going around town trashing him over and over again. Then to have the nerve she is writing this book to save womens lives. What a joke when she did not leave the relationship until she was not allowed to be on RHOBH.When Taylor spent money on clothes, party, etc. didn't she wonder where all the money came from? Since she is in charge of her companies how can she claim ignorance and not know about business? Something doesn't ring true.
When she goes to court the jurors will need to be presented evidence so it will be interesting to see and hear the outcome of this innocent victim.

I just always wonder how the cameras never once caught any domestic violence between Russell and Taylor. If it was as rampant as Taylor would have everyone believe, how did we never see even one escalated argument? If he was as verbally and physically abusive as Taylor claims, are we to believe that he was that in control when the cameras were around? Does not make sense at all. The only thing that makes sense is Taylor is a big fat liar.
