#RHOBH: A Perspective of Season 5

Hey, guys! I’m so sorry that I haven’t been blogging for the last two months. My laptop had crashed and I finally got it fixed. Since, I couldn’t blog the last few episodes of the season, I’ll give you my perspective after I re-watched the entire season. First up, my perspective of the housewives.

tumblr_nka9ec0SS01twnnr4o4_500

Lisa Vanderpump- There’s no doubt that she’s the queen and she won this season. After being on the outs with the entire cast last season, they all came back crawling and begging her for forgiveness. There was one who had to work hard for her forgiveness, though, and that was Brandi. Lisa was smart enough to distance herself from the drama, strengthen certain friendships and realized that there was one who is not and will never be her friend. Lisa, my hat’s off to you. Here’s hoping you will return for next season.

Kyle Richards- I actually really liked Kyle this season. I’ve never liked her for a full season since season 1. Another thing I liked is the fact that Kyle and Lisa mended their friendship. They make way better friends than they do enemies. I just hope it lasts. After re-watching the show, I felt really bad for Kyle: being on the receiving end of Brandi’s attacks, I would imagine, does not feel good. Worst of all, her sister, Kim, sided with Brandi when she was insinuating things about Kim and Kyle’s history that Brandi was not present for. By the end of the season, their relationship was shattered. I hope it’s reparable. I don’t like when those two fight.

Lisa Rinna- Or as the Queen calls her, Rin Tin Tin. For the most part, I liked Lisa. I thought she was extremely funny, open, and eccentric. With that being said, I do feel that she studied the show, did her research and came on the show prepared. Which is fine. it makes for great TV and there’s no denying she is great TV. Unfortunately, when she does that, there will be times when her sincerity seems questionable. One thing I did not like about her, was her obsession with Kim Richards on Twitter. She was tweeting a lot of dark and negative stuff about Kim, which was unnecessary and uncalled for. She has since deleted the tweets, most of them anyway.

tumblr_nkp6zm45ga1ql5yr7o1_500

Eileen Davidson- Eileen was my second favorite this season. Some may find her boring. I find her to be perfection. Her sense of humor, her honesty and her beauty makes her a winner in my book. One of the things I love the most about Eileen is that she calls it like it is without being mean about it. She admits when she’s wrong, apologizes when necessary, and puts Brandi in her place in a way that leaves Brandi speechless. To read Brandi Glanville to the point that she is left speechless is pure talent. Bravo, Eileen. Come back next season, will ya?

tumblr_nik0anERAe1ql5yr7o1_500

Kim Richards- I’ll start off by saying that I do like Kim Richards… 70% of the time. She has a very sweet, bubbly and loving side to her, but she also has a dark, vindictive and vicious side to her as well. And this season we saw both, but most of her vicious side. I don’t know if she’s always had that side. We’ve known she has a mean side, but this side that we saw this season was dark. It was cruel. It was evil. It was… Brandi. Yup, I said it. Brandi definitely makes an impression on KIm. That’s all I’m going to say. It’s sad to re-watch the season after Kim’s arrest because now, even though we knew she wasn’t sober, she’s actually admitted it. The reunion in particular was disturbing to watch because all she did was defend her sobriety (or lack thereof).

tumblr_nge4cdVbOo1qg5o2oo7_500

Yolanda Foster- Yolanda, like Lisa, definitely took a back seat from the drama this season. Which worked out great for her, because I actually ended up liking her again. I hope to see more of this Yolanda. Unfortunately, after filming, she had a terrible relapse with her Lyme Disease and her future on the show is unknown. I think she should take some time off to regroup and come back when she feels better. This season, it was evident that Yolanda tried to keep the peace and was far less judgmental of her costars. Plus, we got to see her country and see more of her wonderful mom and brother. Yolanda, I wish you a speedy recovery and I hope you find a cure for Lyme Disease.

tumblr_nge4cdVbOo1qg5o2oo1_500

Brandi Glanville- Well, my mom always told me that if I had nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all. So on that note, I’m going to give my perspective on the season now.

After the disaster that was season 4, this season started off moderately slow with lighthearted drama. I actually enjoyed the peace while it lasted. It reminded me of season 1 and the reason we all started watching the show in the first place. Of course, all good things must come to an end.

Kim Richards vs Lisa Rinna

tumblr_nkp789xATM1ql5yr7o2_500

Eileen decided to host a poker tournament at her house. Kim, who had a hernia, took one of Monty’s pain pills (for cancer) and hitched a ride with Lisa Rinna to Eileen’s house. Kim was cuckoo for coco puffs which caused Rin Tin Tin to worry and proceeded to question her sobriety to everyone except Kim. Eventually, she confronted Kim with it, right after Brandi had told Kim what RIn Tin Tin was up to. This led to a huge fight in Amsterdam on their first night there. Kim threatened to reveal a secret about Harry Hamlin (I don’t care how old he is, that man is a sexy devil) which pissed Rin Tin Tin off to the point that she almost choked the hell out of Kim, threw wine on her and smashed the wine glass on the table.

Now, both Kim and Rin Tin Tin’s feelings were valid. However, they both went the wrong way about it. I understand that what Rin Tin TIn saw was crazy and that Kim was high as a kite. I get that she was worried but she should have taken her worries to Kim, one on one and let her know that she’s concerned for her. Kim also had a right to be angry with Rin Tin Tin for talking about her sobriety to everyone except her. However, she shouldn’t have brought Harry Hamlin into the mix and she shouldn’t have started the fight between her and Eileen.

Kyle Richards vs Kim Richards & Brandi Glanville

tumblr_nijzxzYcNK1ql5yr7o2_500

At the poker party, Kyle saw how whacky KIm was acting and was worried and embarrassed. Brandi was drunk as a skunk and thought she knew what was best for Kim in that situation. Yes, Brandi, because a drunk person knows what’s best for an addict who had just relapsed. Before Brandi and Kim left the poker party, Kim got pissed at Kyle and Kyle tried to get to Kim to find out what was happening but Brandi was blocking Kyle from Kim. Kyle pushed Brandi’s arm down and that prompted Brandi to twist Kyle’s hand and shove her away from her sister. It all went downhill from there. From that moment on, according to Brandi, Kyle is a “famewhore,” an awful person, an awful sister and a liar. Kim sided with Brandi after Kim felt Kyle tried to air her dirty laundry on national TV. After the show aired, Kim found out that Brandi was actually talking about Kim and her relapse, not just to Rin Tin Tin, but to her BFF, Jennifer as well. But Kim doesn’t care. Brandi is still a good friend while Kyle is a shitty sister in her eyes… I mean Brandi’s eyes. (This season, it was definitely revealed who the real Bobby Fischer was in this group. At least for me it was). Okay, maybe Kyle could have defended Kim more when Rin Tin Tin was talking about her, but Kim could have also defended Kyle when Brandi kept attacking her. They’ve both had a hand in the demise of their relationship and I have no doubt that Brandi, as usual, added fuel to that fire. In fact, she kind of dumped the entire can of kerosene on that fire. I really hope the sisters can come to a resolution now that (it’s been reported) Kim has decided to stay in rehab for 90 more days after Brooke’s wedding.

Ending with Positivity

tumblr_njzazr35291qk7scno1_540

This season has been a roller coaster ride. It was probably the most emotional season yet. What with the Richards sisters’ feud, Yolanda’s battle with Lyme Disease and Bella’s DUI, Max wanting to find out his heritage which caused concern for Lisa and Ken that Max may want to find his biological parents someday. However, if those are the worst of their situations, then it can only go up from there. Kim has admitted that she has a problem and needs more help. I don’t know about others but that gives me hope that one day the sisters can come together and come to a resolution. It seems that Bella has learned from her mistakes and is thriving as a model. Although Yolanda is still dealing with her relapse, I am praying and hoping she gets better soon.

It was funny to watch Rin Tin Tin this season (most of the time). I have hope that next season we will see more of Harry Hamlin. Preferably in the summer time… by a pool… shirtless. Eileen was an absolute pleasure to watch. She’s witty, honest, talented and drop dead gorgeous. As for Brandi, I wish her well but I want her off the show. If she wants to be a housewife then she can go on Orange County with Tamra.

Finally, the Queen of the Hills of Beverly.

tumblr_nge4cdVbOo1qg5o2oo6_500

Whether she’s making a (I have yet to taste) wicked Sangria, being happy in puppy heaven, or eating a space cake, Lisa Vanderpump is the reason we watch this show. She is what a real housewife is. She has a wicked sense of humor, a witty comeback for any shade being thrown at her, carries herself with elegance and sophistication, lives the luxurious lifestyle we tune in to see and when you throw her to the wolves, she will return leading the pack.

Okay, it’s getting late and I have to work early in the morning.

#RHOMelbourne S02E01 “Fresh Start, New Faces” Recap

Initially I wasn’t going to blog about The Real Housewives of Melbourne, but seeing as people love it and I secretly do too, I figured, what the hell? Why not? So before I recap this episode, here’s what I think about all the wives past and present.

Gina Liano- She’s fabulous and I love her potty mouth. She is a bit of a fibber but I still like her nonetheless. Oh yeah, she’s a lawyer. It’s only season 2 but I hope she’s not shady like Phaedra.

Lydia Schiavello- Initially I thought Lydia was dull and full of it. As the season progressed I knew Lydia was dull and full of it. She takes herself way too seriously, but that could be said for all of them, with the possible exception of Gina, Jackie and Chyka.

Janet Roach- Probably the most desperate out of all the women. She flip flops when it comes to her friends. She has no real loyalty to anyone. Basically it’s like the skeletor version of Brandi. It’s only the first episode of the second season and the bitch has already surpassed thirsty. She’s now dehydrated.

Jackie Gillies- Shine, shine, shine! Jackie is the psychic of the group and a lightning rod. It is my opinion that she’s one of the two– the other being Chyka– who keeps it real.

Chyka Keebough- Chyka is my absolute favorite. She tells it like it is, but in a soft, gentle and respectable way. She’s the Switzerland of the group and some of the others have  had issues with that in the past. Why? Because she’s not picking their sides. They need to grow up and be a woman like Chyka.

Andrea Moss- A few words come to mind when describing Andrea: boring, idiot, pretentious, elitist, cliché, petty, the list goes on and on. She basically lead the charge in the gang up of Gina in season 1 over stupid and petty things. I, for one, will not miss her.

tumblr_meuguwBOd11ql5yr7o1_400

We start with Lydia, Chyka and Jackie meeting for lunch. Loving Chyka’s style– especially her hair. Lydia wants us to know that people think she’s pretentious and this and that and basically confirming that I’m not the only one with these feelings. Chyka is incredibly proud that she and Bruce are still together after 25 years of marriage. They are a lovely couple. Jackie is still keeping it real and shine, shine, shining.

Screenshot (355)

They’re talking about dieting and pounding. You know, girl talk. The waiter comes and Lydia says she likes wet pussies… the drink, people! Yeah, I’ve never heard of it either.

Janet is driving around and says she’s going to fight her own battles and allow others to do the same. Ha! Yeah, right. And I’m the tooth fairy. She’s inviting them to her birthday party. They ask if Gina is invited and she says she’d love to invite her. Janet then describes their relationship as being “frenemies.” Literally. Dear, God. We’re already five minutes in and this woman is annoying the shit out of me.

tumblr_mesl222Jcx1ql5yr7o1_400

Janet goes to meet up with this younger guy who owns a restaurant to plan her birthday party. We’re supposed to believe that this man is interested in Janet romantically. She says she wasn’t going to have a birthday party this year but when she talked to Carlos she decided to have it after all. Translation: she only decided to have the party to get camera time.

Screenshot (356)

He tells her that they won’t be able to use the original venue anymore. She’s pretending to freak out and I’m trying not to fall asleep. Enough of this woman, can we get to Gina please? He then proceeds to kiss her ass and it’s gross. So is her hair extensions. Why do these women have such bad hair? Brandi, Adrienne, Janet, etc. Do these women own a brush?

Back at lunch with Chyka, Jackie and Lydia. Chyka shares that she had found lumps on her breast and was worried about it but on the day of getting her test results, Jackie texted her and told her that everything will be fine, and it was. Lydia says that her stepson’s getting married soon and calls herself the mother of the groom.

tumblr_mbkwkePE0T1ql5yr7o1_400

You are step-mother of the groom. Know your lane and stay in it. Apparently they’re going to Florence for the wedding. Who’s her stepson? Kanye West? She discovers that her assistant bought conditioner instead of shampoo and she calls her to tell her to go buy some. Buy your own shampoo, girl. You’re going shopping anyway, right?

tumblr_lxpjijd1MT1ql5yr7o1_r1_400

Janet stops by her hair stylist. He got himself some extensions and clearly that’s not his area of expertise. His hair actually makes Janet’s look red carpet ready. She leaves Gina a voicemail, inviting her to the party and she calls back and accepts. Janet is happy because she knows this will mean more camera time.

Screenshot (357)

Finally we’re getting to Gina. She believes people get the wrong impression of her because of the image she presents. She says that what you see is what you get with her, you just have to look for a while. She meets up with her sister for lunch. Gina tells her sister that she’s planning to move to the US to be with her partner. She also says that her friendship with Lydia is fractured, saying that it’s like a glass; once it’s broken, you can put all the pieces back together but it will always have cracks.

Bloody hell, it’s a Janet-centric episode. No wonder I’m bored. She goes to buy cake. Done.

Lydia is getting ready for Janet’s party and we’re being introduced to her mom. Her mom is not fond of Gina and is quite snarky. I like it.

Chyka and Jackie are riding together. I like the both of them, a lot. Meanwhile, Gina and Lydia are riding together. It is awkward. Lydia apologizes to Gina and hopes they can move forward together in a positive direction. That’s nice.

We’re now at Janet’s party. Yippee, how fun. It’s time to meet the two new housewives. The first one is Gamble Breaux.

Screenshot (358)

Gamble is single with a cute Pomeranian. She has a boyfriend of 5 years. I have mixed feelings about her. On the one hand she doesn’t like food, and food is like my number 1. But she also loves men, saying they are simply gorgeous and that they are her greatest weakness. Hey, me too. I like her personality for sure.

Screenshot (359)

Next, we’re being introduced to Pettifleur Berenger, and she wants us to call her Pettifleur. I think before we’re even 1/4 way through this season I’ll be calling her Petty. She seems to have a real bitch complex because she cannot stop using the word when referring to herself and other women. She thinks it’s taking back the word as her own. No, you just sound ridiculous.

I feel like I dislike her 80% more than I like her. She’s beautiful though, I’ll give her that. At the party she’s already giving attitude. Well, okay then. Looks like this will be a very opinionated season.

Screenshot (360)

The next day, at least we’re supposed to believe it’s the next day, Gamble takes Gina for lunch because she immediately liked her when she met her. She says something just clicked. Translation: she knows who the fan favorite is and is befriending her to get more camera time. She tells Gina about Janet bitching about her at her party. Now Gina is on high alert. Only the first episode and already stirring up trouble, Gamble? Hmm…

Lastly, Janet meets with Carlos and his pet pig to gossip about Gamble. Janet is gross and messy. Next week, she pisses Gamble off. That was quick. This should be good.

What did you think of this week’s episode? Let me know in the comments section or tweet me @SalvaCam21.

#RHOBH S05E16 “Amsterdamn” Recap

This week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was crazy! We had wine throwing, glass breaking, crying, and pot eating, all in the span of two days for them. Yikes! I kept watching the entire episode like this

tumblr_nkpaq4ihbY1qzbyqeo1_540

So let’s break it down, shall we?

tumblr_nge4cdVbOo1qg5o2oo7_500

The ladies and Brandi check into the hotel and Pinky and Eileen arrive a little later. As soon as Rin Tin Tin sees them, she sits them down and gives them the tea about her argument with Kim– I mean Psycho. Rin Tin Tin warns Eileen that Kim will be coming for her and Eileen is like “bring it on, bitch.” I love this woman.

Screenshot (350)

They take a nap and get ready for dinner. They all look sensational. Well, most of them anyway. At the dinner, Yolanda wants them to reveal their inner core to each other because she believes that most people in Beverly Hills only know the surface of each other. I think that’s marvelous, but not for this group. Yolanda opens up about Bella’s DUI while Rin Tin Tin opens up about losing her older sister of a drug overdose. She then takes the opportunity to apologize to Kim and Kim loses it. She starts to give Rin Tin Tin a verbal lashing and things get nasty when Eileen tries to defend her. She also attacks Kyle and tells her mean things; like Brandi supports her more than she does and Kathy is a better sister than she is. I didn’t see Kathy nor Brandi getting Kim on this show to have some financial stability. Nor have I heard of Kathy’s husband supporting Kim financially like a second wife like Mauricio has. Kim gets very vicious with Eileen and calls her a beast. Eileen is all

tumblr_nkp6zm45ga1ql5yr7o1_500

And for a moment I thought I was watching a soap opera. Yolanda tries to intervene to diffuse the situation but Kim threatens to expose a rumor about Harry. That’s when Rin Tin Tin lost her shit. First she lunges at Kim.

tumblr_nkp789xATM1ql5yr7o2_500

Then makes her know that you never go after her husband.

tumblr_nkp789xATM1ql5yr7o1_500

But Kim keeps persisting and that’s when

tumblr_nkp4gm5YCG1seznd4o1_540

Rin Tin Tin throws a glass of wine at Kim and smashes the glass.

tumblr_negyv6FocJ1ql5yr7o1_500

This is arguably the most intense fight in the history of the show. So intense that it made Kyle run for the windmills.

tumblr_nkpr5yKs6x1ql5yr7o1_500

I have to say, when I watched the episode I kept rewinding the fight because it’s like a train wreck that you just can’t look away from. I feel the same way about Kim. Here’s the thing, Kim’s points and feelings are valid. She does have a right to be upset because I don’t necessarily agree with Rin Tin Tin going to everybody with her concerns but Kim, but I do not believe that she had bad intentions. I believe she had/has genuine concern, she just went about it the wrong way.

Now, all Rin Tin Tin was doing was apologizing for butting into Kim’s business. Any normal person would have either accepted  or not accept the apology and move on. As Pinky stated,

tumblr_nkpgb0marF1ql5yr7o1_500

Yolanda takes Rin Tin Tin outside and tries to calm her down. Meanwhile, Kim is with Brandi, venting and being completely ridiculous. Kim fails to realize that by acting the way she does, she’s just proving Rin Tin Tin and Eileen’s point. That is addictive behavior. I’m no expert, but I’ve read about it a little and I’ve had some friends who’s dealt with addiction in their family.

They all head back to the hotel and Kyle continues to cry and Pinky, Rin Tin Tin and Eileen sympathize with her. It’s a clusterfuck, and it’s only the first day.

Screenshot (351)

The next day Rin Tin Tin is in her room, in survival mode, as she says, and who comes knocking on her door? Kim. Oh fuck. She’s being polite and tells Rin Tin Tin her side of the story. In no way was there an apology for her actions and the things that she said, but Rin Tin Tin apologizes, AGAIN.

tumblr_lxpjijd1MT1ql5yr7o1_r1_400

They all meet up in the lobby and Yolanda takes them to the area where she grew up. It’s nice to see this side of Yolanda. You can tell she’s very proud of where she comes from and happy to be sharing her culture with the others. They go bike riding. It’s hilarious. Those bikes are huge!

Screenshot (353)

They ride all the way to the windmills where Yolanda meets an old flame. His name is Peter Paul. What is he? An apostle? Yolanda doesn’t remember him. Not even the fact that they kissed. She blames it on her Lyme Brain. At least Yolanda got a glimpse of what her life would’ve been like if she married the guy. Too funny.

Next, they go visit Yolanda’s mom who survived breast cancer but is now battling uterus cancer. She’s a very lovely woman with a fabulous sense of humor. Pretty much Yolanda’s mom and brother have done pot except her. Well, that needs to change. When in Amsterdam….

Screenshot (354)

Next, it’s time to go to the coffee shop. Brandi doesn’t want to do any pot because she claims she has to “be on top of her game when dealing with these women.” To me, that just means she’s looking for trouble and wants to be sober when she does it. Kyle decides she won’t do it because she doesn’t want her kids seeing her do pot on national television.

tumblr_nko2clD04Z1rlafseo1_400

That’s fine. Brandi, of course, has to point out that Kyle has already smoked pot with her before. Kyle still doesn’t eat the space cake and Brandi is pissed off, calling her a hypocrite. As they leave, Brandi blows up on Kyle over nothing and I wish somebody would smack this bitch.

tumblr_nkogi1gLkN1qzam6zo1_400

And there it is folks. A crazy ass episode with a two crazy ass bitches. By the way, I thought you’d all like to know that I’m doing a ranking of all the RHOBH fights in the last 5 years. Stay tuned…

What did you think of this episode? Let me know what you thought in the comments section or you can tweet me @SalvaCam21.

#RHOBH Happy Lisa Vanderpump Day!

Lisa Vanderpump is many things, mother, wife, restaurateur, philanthropist, animal lover, TV personality, the list goes on and on. On March 1st, 2011, the Mayor of Beverly Hills, Jimmy Delshad, presented Lisa Vanderpump with the key to the city. He also declared it Lisa Vanderpump Day in Beverly Hills.

Lisa Vanderpump Day

So since it’s that time of year again, I thought it would be fun to celebrate all the qualities we love about Lisa Vanderpump. So here’s to the woman we’ve come to know and love!

She’s an amazing wife and mother.

Not to mention that as a housewife, she’s made a lot of history. One of them being the first housewife to be asked to participate on Dancing with the Stars after they placed a ban on all the housewives.

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

She’s an incredibly loyal friend, to the point where she’s almost compromising her beliefs and integrity.

She’s smart enough to know that once someone shows you their true self, believe them.

When Brandi rallied all the women together to gang up on Lisa to dethrone her, she came back stronger than before.

And gave us the gift that keeps on giving: Vanderpump Rules.

Whether she’s being a great mother to her children and puppies, or getting attacked by the entire cast, Lisa Vanderpump was, still is and always will be, the best. We love you, Lisa. Don’t you ever forget that.

#RHOBH S05E15 “Welcome to Amsterdam” Recap

I can’t believe we’re already at episode 15! This season just flew by! It’s weird because I remembered I couldn’t wait for last season to be over and now I wish this season never end. But, alas, all good things must come to an end. So let’s get into it.

tumblr_nge4cdVbOo1qg5o2oo7_500

It’s time for the scavenger hunt! It looks like a lot of fun. And who makes a special appearance? Camille! I wish they would bring Camille back. She may have been a dud but at least she lives the Beverly Hills lifestyle that we tune in for.

The girls are divided into three dream teams. Kyle is captain of Dream Team 1, Eileen is captain of Dream Team 2 and Yolanda, of course, is captain of Dream Team 3. As fate (producers) would have it, Brandi ends up on Kyle’s team.

tumblr_nke6f7po2D1ql5yr7o1_400

At least she has Camille on her team to offset the crazy drunk. Eileen’s team consists of her, Kim and her friend Lynn. Yolanda’s team is of her and the two Lisas. A dream team indeed. They set off to start the scavenger hunt and Eileen’s team takes an early lead.

I feel like I’m commentating on the Olympics right now. Ha ha. Does anyone have a microphone? All Kim is doing is bitching and killing the vibe of Eileen’s team.

tumblr_nhtuwbkNRp1ql5yr7o1_500

Why is Kim being so pissy? It’s probably because she’s mad at Eileen for trying to help repair the damage that was done to Kim’s relationship with Kyle. You know, because only Kim sees that as a bad thing. Why? Because she doesn’t think it’s appropriate for Eileen to butt into other people’s business like that. But I guess it was totally appropriate for Kim to ambush Taylor with an “intervention” to tell her that she had a drinking problem, right?

Screenshot (346)

Yolanda’s team looked as if they had the most fun though…and penalties. Pinky hopped on a bike for a hot pink second and the three of them hijacked a Beverly Hills tour bus. Rin Tin Tin’s response to anyone who might have a problem with that?

tumblr_nke6tsPfmK1ql5yr7o1_500

I probably would have done the same. No, I know I would have done the same. Looking back now, I think of how lucky those tourists are. There they are, enjoying a leisurely ride on Rodeo Drive when Yolanda, Pinky and Rin Tin Tin hijacks their bus. Lucky sons of bitches.

The final destination in the hunt is Villa Blanca where they all meet up and have lunch. Yolanda has one last surprise for them though: a trip to Amsterdam! Woohoo!

I’m skipping the housewives getting ready for the trip. I don’t have much time and I’d rather comment on the fun and more important parts of the show.

Screenshot (347)

It’s time to go on the trip but before they go to Amsterdam, the ‘wives, sans Pinky and Eileen, are going to Calgary first to attend David’s charity event. Before the trip, though, Brandi told Kim about Rin Tin Tin’s talk with her after they did her podcast. Remember? The one where Rin Tin Tin tried to get to the bottom of Brandi’s behavior and Brandi deflected by throwing Kim under the bus? Yeah, so not only did she tell Kim that Lisa R. was worried about her sobriety, she completely failed to mention her part in the conversation. That’s Brandi for you. Always deflecting and trying to act like her hands are clean. But in the words of Kenya Moore: “Your hands are not clean, they’re full of grease.”

So on the plane, Kim is giving Rin Tin Tin the cold shoulder and the silent treatment. Rin Tin Tin asks her what her problem is and Kim blows up on  her. She yells at her and berates her like a child, even after Rin Tin Tin apologizes more than once. It was uncomfortable to watch. Kyle looked the way I felt watching this. I can only imagine how she felt, being right between them. Yikes.

I will say, Kim’s feelings are valid, but as usual, she picks the worst times to have an argument. Awkward to say the least.

Screenshot (348)

The ladies are in Calgary. Yolanda, Kyle and Rin Tin Tin are in the first limo and are running late so they won’t be waiting for Thing 1 and Thing 2. Yolanda hopes that the argument on the plane does not set the tone for the trip. LOL, oh, Yolanda, you have no idea. Rin Tin Tin says that she got Kim’s message loud and clear. She also said that this issue hits close to home for her because both of Harry’s brothers died from alcoholism and Harry has been sober for 3 years himself.

They arrive to the event. Brandi is wearing the dress she wore during a promo shoot for RHOBH when she joined in season 2. The only difference is, now she looks older, cattier and more tipsy. Oh, and those bangs were hideous.

The event was a total success. Rin Tin Tin’s got some moves, Kyle kissed the king of lips, Steve Tyler and most importantly, David managed to raise $8.2 million. Wow. That is amazeballs!

The housewives are now officially in Amsterdam, but the episode’s almost over. Sad face. Kim blows up on Kyle over nothing. They should’ve named this episode “Kim’s bitch fits.” It seems more appropriate. Now Kyle’s upset and uncomfortable and jet lagged. Thanks a lot, Kim.

#RHOBH S05E14 “Surprise!” Recap

Apologies for the late blogging but I’ve been super busy these days. For the last few weeks I’ve been working 10-12 hours a day non-stop. Finally found some time off to do a bit of blogging. Since I don’t have time to blog about all the episodes that I missed, I’m just going to give my brief opinions on them.

Episode 12: Watching Lisa V struggle with the fact that Max wants to learn more about his heritage makes me appreciate my mom even more. I feel bad for Kim and Kyle. I feel bad for Kyle because Kim is allowing Brandi to come between her and her sister and I feel bad for Kim because she is clearly not sober and Brandi is manipulating her into believing Kyle doesn’t care for her. I do believe Kyle loves and cares for her sister but Kyle still has a teenager and a child to raise. Brandi is a bitch. Lisa R. and Eileen are amazing and Yolanda is currently on my good side and in my thoughts and prayers as she battles her relapse with Lyme Disease.

Episode 13: The reactions of Kyle and Lisas V and R to Eileen’s movie is hilarious! Watching Lisa V and Pandora cry because they’re worried Max wants to connect with his biological family breaks my heart. I do not ever want or like to see them cry. She must also be relieved after Max said that he doesn’t want to look for his biological family after getting the results. Brandi is an even bigger bitch for likening her drinking to Bella’s. Yolanda is a good woman for keeping her composure and not strangling the hell out of that woman. Eileen is lovely for trying to mediate between Kim and Kyle. Kim has no reason to dislike Eileen. Kim is being ridiculous.

And now let’s get to episode 14, shall we?

The episode starts off with Kyle visiting Lisa V. Well, not really. It actually starts off with Yolanda but since Brandi is visiting her, I’m skipping it. Kyle is angry and hurt that Kim continues to allow Brandi to come between them.

Lisa advises Kyle to not pay attention to what Brandi says because she’s only looking for a reaction. I agree. Everything Brandi does is for shock value and a lot of the women give her the reactions that she’s looking for. The quickest way to shut that parasite down is to ignore her.

Eileen and Vince are out on a date night. I like these two together. They have a fun banter about them. They’re like what Adrienne and Paul tried to be. I feel like I’ve said that before but I don’t care because it’s true.

She is arranging a table read at her house and is wise enough to not invite Brandi this time. She makes it clear there will be no alcohol this time because these women are already turned up enough as it is. Have I mentioned how much I love this woman? Her ability to read people will be legend.

Back to Lisa V, she’s playing with her dogs while waiting for Lisa R. to arrive. When she comes, they go to Eileen’s together. I love the Lisas together. They need their own spin off. I’ll keep repeating it until it comes true. On their way, Lisa is worried about Kim. She needs her relationship with her sister to be solid. I agree and so does Lisa R. Lisa R. wants to do a Kimtervention but Lisa V. assures her that that’s not a good idea. Listen to Pinky, Rin Tin Tin! She speaketh from experience…eth!  Rin Tin Tin doesn’t know why everyone is so scared of Kim. I don’t think they’re scared, I think they just don’t want to deal with the drama from her because we’ve seen her lose it when asked if she took a sleeping pill. Also, I believe that they don’t say anything on camera because they’re trying to protect her.

Kyle picks Kim  up and they’re both acting like everything is fine. They haven’t seen each other since the lunch between her and Kyle. Kyle says sometimes it’s best to brush things under the carpet. Little things maybe, but not when you have a blow out like you did at the lunch. When you brush too many things under the carpet, it’s only a matter of time before somebody trips and explodes…like at Taylor’s birthday party in season 1. (The limo fight between Kim and Kyle).

It’s time for Vince’s table read. Rin Tin Tin is not happy with the fact that she’s the narrator. The script is rather confusing so Rin Tin Tin sums it up for us: “Basically, it’s someone ‘Poker-fucking a puppet.”

Eileen brings her Emmy and Pinky has the best acceptance speech ever. tumblr_njzpbnFW1a1ql5yr7o1_500

They all head over into the kitchen. Rin Tin Tin asks Kim how she’s doing and Kim basically says she’s  under a lot of stress with Monty and everything. They try to offer their support but Kim responds with a “Blah, blah, blah…”

tumblr_njznura1rT1ql5yr7o1_500

Very well said, Rin Tin Tin.

Yolanda is at home and I’m mortified at how many  pills she has to take in a day. She takes more pills in one day than I take in a year. Jeez!

Her party planners are over to plan the scavenger hunt around Beverly Hills and I’m looking forward to it. It looks like a lot of fun. Actually, it is. I have participated in a couple with my friends when I was in high school.

It’s time for Pinky’s party! Yay! Ken has her believing that they’re having an intimate dinner with Mohammed and he stages a problem at PUMP for them to fix. Lisa is none too pleased about that, but little does she know, she’s in for a big surprise.

By the way, I see Brandi there and I have no idea why. I guess that’s what happens when you skip a few scenes. Oops. Everybody is hiding behind the bar and when Ken and Lisa arrive, they all emerge from the bar and scream. The look on Lisa’s face was priceless, but I think Giggy might have been more surprised than she was.

Mohammed makes a lovely speech, Brandi makes fun then excuses herself to the bathroom. Lisa makes a speech, it’s funny, Brandi returns and Lisa sends her off for her next punishment: karaoke. I can see why that would be a punishment but it’s also kind of a punishment for the other guests to have to listen to that screeching. I’ve heard cats in heat that sound far better than that.

Screenshot (343)

It’s Pinky’s turn to sing and she has a very classic and elegant voice. Kim, Lisa R and Kyle join her and Brandi calls them the menopause mamas because “I still get the flow, if you know what that means.” Yes, Brandi, we know you still get the flow. In fact the entire world knows you still get the flow ever since you were photographed being sloppy drunk with your ass and tampon string hanging out of your cooch. We know it’s not there for show!

Eileen comes out of the bathroom while Kyle is outside fixing her makeup. She tells Kyle what her and Lisa R have been talking about and that they both feel a moral obligation to say something since they’ve witnessed the craziness. In Kyle’s words: This is not going to end well.

What did you think of this episode? I can’t wait to see all the drama unfold in Amsterdam. It’s actually kind of sad. Let me know what you think of this episode in the comments section or tweet me @SalvaCam21.

A Gay Dad’s Letter to Gay Teen, Austin Wallis, and the High School That Rejected Him

The world of teens and tweens can be a treacherous one. As the dad to two 12 year olds, I see it as a world where childhood cushions and play have fallen away and new, somewhat complex challenges have emerged. It is a world where peer relationships and socializations are paramount. Independence is practically a life force and hormones seem to be pumping through veins previously filled with sugar and spice. It is a world where kids discover themselves and those discoveries can range from the thrilling to crisis, and sometimes both at the same time.

Adults standing on the sidelines to this whirlwind try our best to lead, nurture and inspire. We try to guide our young charges to being their best, and set themselves up to capture a destiny worthy of the love we cloak them in.

Some adults do this except in the cases where the child…
