Dorit has some ‘splaining to do in this episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Actually, its Lisa Rinna who has to pull her foot out of her mouth after that shocking accusation about Dorit and her crack den. The ladies leave Hong Kong in “From Dogs to Diamonds” with a bad taste in their mouth, but its not so bad that they can’t enjoy a little rose.
Dorit is Living in a Coke Den
Probably not really, but that’s what Rinna wants us to think. More than anything, this is probably just a ploy on Rinna’s part to get the cameras pointed back at her. She’s been at the center of all the controversy for the last several episodes, and she just can’t stand that Erika’s crying and Eileen’s “dead son” gaffe are getting air time.
I’ll admit, Dorit has handled the accusations very well. She keeps her cool, and she doesn’t reach across the table and give Rinna the open-handed slap she deserves. It’s a weird thing for Rinna to accuse Dorit of, but Rinna has proven time and again that she’s a wack-a-doodle. I know we haven’t heard the last of this coke den mess. Stay tuned.
I know this sounds like a pornographic movie, but it’s actually a super ritzy store in Hong Kong, in which the ladies go to shop their sorrows away. After all, shopping always makes everybody feel better, especially when you have as much money as these women do.
Everything is going fine, but there’s a weird tension between Erika and Eileen, and neither of them have tried to clear the air. If I know RHOBH, they’ll let it seethe until it becomes a much bigger deal than it has to be.
Eden, on the other hand, is in the giving spirit and buys Erika a “friendship ring.” Erika is put off by this in a disproportionate way, but I guess it really is a strange gesture between two women who hardly know each other. This crap gets even weirder when Erika asks the price and is relieved that it’s not as expensive as she though it was. I’ll never understand these women. Ever.
Hong Kong Dogs
Lisa Vanderpump and her dogs are also a mystery to me. I mean, I get being an animal lover, but she takes it to a whole new level. I admire her commitment, but it sure is disappointing watching Eileen get turned down when she wants to adopt one. It seems like it kind of defeats the purpose, if you ask me.
Lunch: The Recap
Kyle, Eileen and Erika have a post-Hong Kong lunch to rehash the whole trip and check in with everyone’s feelings. Erika is fine with how Rinna left things with Dorit and all that coke nonsense. Erika is also still pretty pissed at Dorit and PantyGate, but I’m bored with this so please don’t make me type one more word.
Thankfully, Erika and Eileen clear the air and act like grown-ups. This is why these two need their own show. Maybe Erika can make a career out of this whole Young and the Restless gig and we can just watch them be cool girls and get along. I’d tune in every week.
Hollywood in Beverly Hills
My Real Housewives dreams are coming true when I get to see them sprinkled around other projects. Erika’s stint on The Young and the Restless is just about as soap opera perfect as it can be. She plays Farrah Dubois, a bratty, outspoken real estate agent who gets into a scuffle with Eileen’s character.
Kyle is also dipping her toe in the show business pool. Her TVLand comedy is filming and her hours are a little crazy. I’m rooting for Kyle and this venture, especially since the show is based on her real life. I imagine we’ll get all sorts of juicy “before they were stars” moments. Fingers crossed.
Lisa Rinna’s Greatest Hits
Both Dorit and Vanderpump revisit some of Rinna’s highlights. Of course, Dorit tattles to PK because it doesn’t seem like she has other friends. They get a good laugh at Rinna and Erika’s expense. They come off as mean-spirited and just downright catty. It’s gross.
Vanderpump decides to unload her feelings about Rinna to her party planner, Kevin Lee. She glosses over it, but don’t be fooled. Rinna hasn’t heard the last from Vanderpump.
Pink, Bling and Wedges
Vanderpump knows how to throw a party, let me tell you. Her diamonds and rose party has a lot of rules and regulations, and the rest of the ladies fall in line — pretty much. She demands that they wear pink, have some glitter and bling, and wear wedges, but Erika refuses to “wear wedges after dark.”
Dorit has gold leaf in her hair, and all I can think about is how many Meals on Wheels that could provide. Kyle is a little more down to earth in her outfit and just grabs something off the mannequin in her store. It’s apparently not too expensive because she lops off the bottom of the pink romper with kitchen scissors.
None of the women have anything on Erika, with that flaming pink wig and chest full of diamonds. She looks like she came from outer space, and whatever planet she came from, I want to go there immediately.
They better have their ‘A’ game because Lisa’s house looks so freaking posh. The opulence and decadence are almost too much. I feel guilty just watching. We’ll have to wait for the season finale to see the best bits of the party, but until then, let’s dish about “From Dogs to Diamonds.”
