What would you expect to see at a fashion show thrown by a woman who is launching her new line of shoes? Oh ... perhaps ... SHOES!? Well, apparently that's a little too straightforward for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
THG breaks down all the drama and confusion in its +/- recap below!
For all of Lisa's protests about not wanting to go overboard on Pandora's wedding she does absolutely nothing to stop her wedding planner from doing just that.
Minus 8 because I wish she'd stop whining about it and accept the fact that nothing is too outlandish for her baby girl, including $15,000 wedding invitations.
Smoking designer cocktails are next on the list. When they say that the overpriced beverage is your personal, unique signature drink for your event, I always wonder how many people they've sold that same line to for the same exact drink.
Plus 10 for the sucker born every minute and those waiting to make a buck off of them.
Pandora requests that her mother's friends don't have a battle in the middle of her wedding. Good luck with that. Minus 5 for naivete when her fiance thinks the ladies wouldn't start a fight at their wedding. Has he watched this show before?Moving on from the start of a marriage to the end of one, we get a glimpse at Taylor and Russell's counseling sessions. Minus 15. This is just horribly uncomfortable to watch.
The doctor is talking about how it's important to be emotionally safe and that Russell needs to recognize when he's getting angry, mean, nasty and wants to hurt the person he's with. Yikes! I don't know about Taylor, but I think I'm scared.
Minus 10 because Taylor just wants to sweep it all under the rug and move on. The doctor tells her that's immature and unrealistic. But Russell doesn't seem up for dealing with their issues. He's got to leave early to get to a meeting.
I can't imagine why therapy didn't work.
Later, on the way to Adrienne's party we see Taylor and Russell again in the back of a limo. He looks so awkward and uncomfortable in front of the camera that I have to wonder if he only signed off on doing this show because he was desperate for the money. Again, these scenes go from being sad to horrifying when you know what comes next.
The next day Taylor bails out on a mani / pedi date she set up with Kyle and Brandi. Plus 10 because the two woman make the best of it. Brandi wants to invite the ladies over for some fun but she's worried her injured foot will limit their options.
Perhaps a porn star friend can come over and give them all pointers. Plus 5 because the look on Kyle's face is priceless.
Honestly, Brandi is on the wrong show. The Real Housewives of Atlanta or New Jersey would be all over this party idea but not so much in Beverly Hills. I'd give lots of extra points if we could see Lisa's face during this party demonstration.
Then on to Adrienne's fashion show. The first thing she does is pull Lisa aside to tell her how hurt she is over Pandora having her bachelorette party at someplace other than the Maloof's hotel in Vegas. Lisa tries to explain that a family friend offered to throw the party at their hotel and she simply didn't want to impose on Adrienne.
Minus 7 to Adrienne for making such a big deal out of nothing.
On a side note, did Lisa and Ken really have to bring the dog to the fashion show. Minus 5. Leave the furry creature at home for once.
Plus 9 to Camille and Taylor for avoiding the upcoming fight at Adrienne's event, even though they looked like kids in junior high doing it.
The fashion show is lovely. The dresses are gorgeous. I wish I could afford any of them or have a place to wear them, but what about the shoes?
All we heard about was how excited Adrienne was about her new shoe line and when they walked down the runway we never even saw them under the long skirts. Minus 10. I know this was a charity event first and foremost but it did seem like a lot of build up for little payoff and I don't really care about shoes.
EPISODE TOTAL: -26! SEASON TOTAL: - 289!
Don't miss next week when it looks like the turmoil continues in Beverly Hills as Taylor has a full on meltdown bigger than any we've seen.
