‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Premiere Recap: Lisa Vanderpump and Adrienne Maloof’s Feud Continues
Apparently, time hasn’t mended the rift between Adrienne Maloof and her former next door neighbor Lisa Vanderpump that began during last season’s reunion special. On the special, the two butted heads over Adrienne’s accusations that Lisa sold stories to the tabloids about the Housewives, which the feisty Brit denied.
Note: Spoilers ahead if you haven’t watched Monday’s episode, “Down and Left Out In Beverly Hills.”
Fast forward to the present, and the ladies were still smarting over the fallout, with neither planning to apologize. Lisa decided to throw a three-year anniversary bash for her restaurant Villa Blanca, and invited sisters Kyle and Kim Richards, Brandi Glanville, Taylor Armstrong, and new Housewife Yolanda Foster.
Taylor “accidentally” spilled about the party to Adrienne, who realized she was being snubbed. Adrienne seemed stunned by Lisa’s actions, but hoped they would be able to put the past behind them. Her husband Paul Nassif joked that his wife better not hold her breath on getting an invite to Lisa’s shindig. If this whole plastic surgery thing doesn’t work out as a career choice for Paul, he might consider soothsaying.
Later, the ladies put on their party threads and attended Lisa’s bash. An anxious Brandi admitted to Lisa and Yolanda how nervous she was about bumping into Taylor and Kim, since she wasn’t in a good place with them.
Taylor and Kim arrived, and as predicted, weren’t too keen on spending time in Brandi’s presence. The two were still miffed over Brandi’s comments during the reunion special. Brandi tried her best to ease the tension, but Kim wasn’t trying to stick around for it. Taylor simply let her facial expressions convey her disdain for Brandi.
OMG!: Kyle’s little girl Portia calling up the housewives to come to her birthday party. How cute is she?
Thank you, TV gods.: Yolanda coming to Brandi’s defense with Kyle, Kim, and Taylor over her joke. Even though Brandi’s sense of humor can be a bit much, she wasn’t trying to be outlandish and Yolanda understood and so should the others.
Awk-ward: Brandi and Kyle’s conversation when little Portia called to invite Lisa to her party. Kyle claims they are cool but her reaction are two different things.
Hotness: Kyle’s new car courtesy of her hottie hubby Mauricio. If that is a reward then I wanna sign up to their program!
Fab-u-lous: Lisa’s new house. What a pad!
Can. Not. Wait.: Adrienne and Lisa to finally run into each other. Brandi’s showdown with Paul, fireworks will happen and it will be juicy.
