The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Recap, Part III: Dana, Kim and the House Husbands

by at . Comments

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion show finally concluded Monday night with visits from Dana Wilkey, Kim Richards and the house husbands.

If you missed the previous two reunion shows (yes, it's a three-part affair) and all the drama therein, follow these links for recaps of Part I and Part II.

Then, join us as we recap the nude photos, conspiracy theories, and alcohol abuse right here in THG's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills +/- review ...

What does Taylor say would give her great solace? The possibility that her husband was murdered. What?!? Minus 20. Okay, she doesn't come out and actually say the words but that's what she's implying.

Then she regales us with tales of Russell. Every week her stories become more horrific. This time she tells of Russell secretly recording her and forcing her to take a polygraph test to prove she wasn't cheating on him.

Then there's a story about Russell assaulting both Taylor and her friends and trying to drown Taylor in the pool but she somehow convinced her friends not to press charges. Some friends. Minus 15.

Brandi voices that these stories don't make sense to her and Camille agrees that the stories are simply horrifying.

So is Taylor telling the whole truth and she was just too terrified to leave or are we missing Russell's side of the story. I suppose we'll never really know.

Moving on from the appalling to the laughable, Dana makes an appearance. Minus 10. Dana's always annoyed me and what's up with the whole Dana / Pam thing? Which is it?

Classy as ever, Dana wears heels that say "F**k You" and give the finger with a diamond on it. She thinks they're hot. Minus 12. Money can't buy good taste.

Thankfully Dana gives us some insights into her obsession with money. She grew up poor until her mom died when she was 15 and was shipped off to her dad and abruptly thrown into one of the richest schools in the country.

Suddenly Dana's behavior starts to make some sense. Plus 9.

Of course her wannabe behavior is simply unattractive no matter what the reason.

On to the hunkiest house husbands in all of Beverly Hills, at least according to Andy. Ken, Mauricio, and Paul all take a seat on the couch. 

We rehash Ken's issues with seeing a therapist. He says his views haven't changed but he has made amends with Taylor and Kyle. He meant no offense but he simply prefers to talk out his issues with his wife instead of a therapist. Hey, he's British. Plus 5.

Then we have the comparison photos of Mauricio and Paul. Yes, Mauricio is hot but Paul is funny and he's a surgeon. Plus 10 to both of them as they seem like good guys. Although Mauricio says he's stopped receiving nude photos from fans.

Maybe Kyle's blocking his mail.

Finally we end it all with Kim's interview. She admits that she's an alcoholic who also takes prescription medication for severe anxiety and panic disorder. I think she looks a little drugged during this interview but perhaps that's just Kim.

This is Kim's third stint in rehab and this time her daughter staged an intervention to get her there. At least Kim really seems to be trying so Plus 12 for that.

When they show clips of Kim from the start of the season you can see that she appears sober. Then we see her spiral out of control to the mess she was at the end and it's all extremely sad to watch.

Plus 15 because she left Ken and thank goodness she was never pregnant. 

I must admit that by the end of the interview I was happy to be done with both Kim and Kyle Richards. These sisters share too much drama and a little goes a long way. I can only imagine what next season will bring.

EPISODE TOTAL: -6! SEASON TOTAL: +186!

Too much time spent on Kim, and of course Taylor. I think I'd rather stick a fork in my eye than have to listen to one more minute of Taylor's self righteous, shameless promoting. As far as Kim, I think you're right. Did NOT seem sober to me. I did not enjoy any of these BH reunion shows. All they do is accuse, blame, yell and then defend themselves. Very nasty and bitter. Hardly a laugh in all 3 shows! No fun. Seems to me they've all gotten a bit to big for their britches. Wouldn't mind seeing some changes...

Kim was high on benzos during her first "sober" appearance, is very disconcerting for those who are living sober. Benzos have an addictive quality to them. I work as a licensed therapist and in my agency, anyone on a benzo MUST stop. So, please, representing Kim as sober is disrespectful to those who really are rebuilding their lives as sober.
