The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion is meant to hash out old feuds and facilitate moving forward for the cast, but this reunion is doing the opposite.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion part 2 had all the characteristics of a good reunion: glamour, anger, deep-seated resentment, and hairspray. Unfortunately, all it seems to be doing is reminding us why Denise Richards left. Kyle Richards is taking no responsibility for anything except her love for Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave.
Lisa Rinna simply feigned ignorance the whole time and said she did not remember saying any of the atrocious things she said. Her chosen personality for the day, Joan the wig, was the most interesting part about her. She licked her lips no less than 30 times in some sort of intimidation tactic that left her looking like a lizard in your yard. No responsibility was taken at any point.
Denise leaned back in her chair most of the episode and might have been watching television while filming. She seemed checked out and had already announced her departure, so we don’t blame her in the lease. “I was like ‘whatever.’ I don’t care.” Kyle noted that she reached out and apologized, but Denise was quick to remind her that she only apologized after the backlash from viewers started.
Denise said that if they wanted to see her texts with Brandi, she was totally willing to do that and show her texts with everyone else too. Rinna didn’t look thrilled about that, either.
Garcelle Beauvais held her own and didn’t even bother responding to Teddi’s comment about the eating disorder discussion. That’s how unimportant Teddi and her questions are. Garcelle also only responded “Okay” to a response to Rinna, too. What a queen.
Andy Cohen was not asking the important questions we all wanted him to ask, which made for a pretty boring reunion. Teddi talked about someone losing a finger, Kyle complained about her mumu’s and how hard that was for her, Denise was busy thinking about her grocery list for the store later.
All in all, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ruined the best thing they had going for them: Denise Richards. Who would want to go on this show after they’ve run off two very important characters in the past two years? I’m sure Brandi and Kim Richards are waiting in the car with bated breath and microphones on.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion part 3 airs Wednesday, September 16.
