'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Recap: Brandi Glanville Hashes Things Out With Her Ex's Mistress
Brandi Glanville has a showdown with ex-husband Eddie Cibrian’s former mistress, while Taylor Armstrong says goodbye to her past on Bravo's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Last season, viewers were left speechless when outspoken housewife Brandi came face to face with her former husband’s ex-mistress Scheana at BFF Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurant, Sur. The tension between the two was thicker than a starlet with lip plumpers! It would be a no brainer for both Brandi and Scheana to avoid each other as if they wore last season’s fashion collection. If only common sense worked that way.
Viewers first met the waitress during a party at Lisa's restaurant. But, Scheana was quickly sent home when Brandi arrived and recognized the woman (one of many, allegedly) who was dating Eddie when they were still married.
This week, Lisa asked Brandi if she would be interested in speaking with Scheana, since the girl was anxious to tell her side of the story regarding her illicit liaison with Eddie. At first, a disgusted (and rightfully so!) Brandi scoffed at the idea, since Scheana sold her story to the press. However, she soon caved in as a favor to Lisa, and a desire to tell her off.
Later, both Scheana and Brandi met up at Sur to get the affair out in the open. Scheana feigned she never knew Eddie was married, and claimed she was also lied to when the actor was two-timing (technically three, right?) her with current wife LeAnn Rimes. Brandi shot Scheana’s wounded party act down, and told the tearful waitress she has no love for the woman that contributed to the destruction of her marriage. She ordered Scheana to dry her tears. Brandi chastised Scheana for running to the press when it was revealed Eddie had an affair with LeAnn, but Scheana insisted she wanted to tell the world the truth. Scheana swore she was no home wrecker.
Meanwhile, Taylor had a cold dose of reality thrown in her face when her lawyer informed her about an ongoing litigation involving the diva due to her deceased husband Russell. Taylor’s attorney told her that her husband's former business partners wanted to end the lawsuit if she’d give up her wedding rings to help pay back what's owed. A distraught Taylor was appalled by the offer, especially as she considered the person a friend. Taylor’s lawyer also confessed the business partner wanted the two Hermes bags she owned as well, so they could wipe the slate clean of the suit. A dejected Taylor asked for a day to think over things.
OMG!: Kyle Richards allowing Faye Resnick to bash Brandi at her dinner party. Come on Kyle, we know you aren't afraid to call someone out, do it with Faye!
Thank you, TV gods.: New housewife Marisa Zanuck telling Faye to let Brandi deal with her issues with Adrienne Maloof on her own time. It isn't your fight Faye, be quiet!
Awk-ward: Taylor's psychic reading. Taylor looked freaked out, just like viewers were.
Hotness: Brandi's dress she wore to confront Scheana. Ms. Glanville showed why Scheana was a dirty little secret and she was the wife.
Fab-u-lous: Yolanda Foster's glass refrigerator. Can't you just sit there and look at it all day?
Can. Not. Wait.: Anxious to see what the group says about Adrienne's lawsuit against Brandi and if Kyle and Kim Richards can work out their issues.
