I Hate Jill Zarin Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Air Date Dec 23, 2010
The show opens with all of the wives trying to explain to their husbands what on earth happened at Camille’s dinner party from hell. With the exception of Camille, whose husband moved 3,000 miles away from her to get some peace and be interesting, the men all got the scoop on the previous evening’s events.
I really am a bit disappointed that we don’t see more of Adrienne on the Beverly Hills housewives, she is just too normal, not enough controversy or bickering from Adrienne. The only one she bickers with his her husband. Tonight we saw Adrienne attending the two events of the evening but she tries to say neutral and even create peace between Camille and Kyle.
Adrienne had lunch with Camille and even while Camille attempted to make the whole meal a discussion of Kyle’s faults, Adrienne was careful to remain neutral. Camille’s constant rants about Kyle even forced Adrienne to end the lunch by saying she had to pick up her son. The salads were finished but and Adrienne left rubber burning on the café sidewalk. We know how you feel Adrienne!
Lisa held a fundraiser for a young lady who had been burned by a virtual stranger that she had one date with. A horrifying situation but typical of Lisa to help those in need, her fashion show luncheon raised $25,000 even without Camille Grammer and her millions. Not only does Camille fail to show up at the fashion show but she ensures that Kyle’s afternoon is ruined by texting her that the Grammers will no longer do business with Kyle’s husband Mauricio, their realtor.
We would need to consult a psychiatrist to really diagnosis Camille Grammer but what kind of woman sends a text message like that under these circumstances? It literally makes no sense, unless the Grammer’s were, at that very moment, in the market for a new home or wanting to sell a home, there wouldn’t be any business to be done anyway. Add to that, Kelsey Grammer is the one with the money and would most likely be making the decisions about who to do business with. I can just see Camille going to her husband with her complaint against Kyle and making a business decision based on the psychosis of his wife.
Camille “Kelsey, Kyle said I wasn’t interesting unless you were with me, don’t buy any more houses from her husband”.
Kelsey “Hey baby, I hear the blues a-callin’, Tossed salad and scrambled eggs, And maybe I seem a bit confused, Yeah maybe, but I got you pegged! “
Camille would rather televise her affair with her married friend, Nick than attend a fundraiser as she gears up to get on the BMW motorcycle and ride off into the sunset. There is no way that woman should have been on the back of his bike, not only because it should have been his own wife sitting there but because Camille Grammer dissed her husband’s Harley Davidson motorcycle and should be smacked around for that alone. Kelsey Grammer should bring that one scene to court with him as he divorces this bitch, any judge would view that scene and give Kelsey his divorce with great speed.
Kelsey probably thinks the same thing that we’re all thinking, Camille really is DULL without her husband by her side. If Camille Grammer thinks she was “verbally abused”, she should read some of the tweets that have been sent to her.
Lisa is a bit more involved in the Kyle/Camille war than Adrienne, while she doesn’t get into the arguments, she definitely has an opinion and she can see who is right and who is wrong and she’s not afraid to tell it like it is.
Taylor Armstrong is a strange bird, as she plans her Roaring 20’s party she makes a call to Camille to ensure that she’ll be there. Since Camille missed Lisa’s fundraiser, Taylor is worried that she won’t have the fun party that is the talk of the town if she doesn’t have the friction between the battling Housewives at her party. She couldn’t stand to have a dull, uneventful bash that no one is talking about the next morning.
Kim refused to attend the party because her daughter was leaving town the next day to get away from her crazy controlling mother and spend some time with her father in Texas. While Kim did apologize to Taylor for the “go blow up your lips” comment, she chooses to say home and fold her kid’s clothes rather than have another “blow up” with Taylor. The two ladies have a mani/pedi spa day together which was awkward and seemed to be set up by Bravo’s producers as it seems really unlikely that they would have planned this on their own. The perfect hands and feet couldn’t distract Taylor from the fact that Kim is just an odd woman.
The night of the costume party arrives and the ladies are all getting their hair and makeup done by their personal stylists, outfits are chosen and ready to go and Camille decides that she will attend even though Kyle will be there as well.
Lisa surprises everyone by showing up dressed as a man and her gay husband dressed as a woman. Here’s what they didn’t address, Lisa said that at the last minute they decided to switch outfits, are you telling me that Lisa’s dress fit Cedric? Was that really the dress that Lisa was going to wear and Cedric just slipped it on and it fit? That’s a bit strange but even Lisa’s real husband, Ken was shocked as the couple walked down the stairs wearing each other’s costumes.
Taylor arrives and her smooch with her husband was similar to the one we saw Camille share with Kelsey backstage on Broadway, it was strange and extremely awkward. It wasn’t the usual married couple kiss or even the cheek kiss, their faces literally didn’t touch each other, the ultimate air kiss. A party guest even noted that he got more of a kiss from Taylor than her husband was able to get out of her. I am seeing more and more that this is a marriage of convenience, possibly a couple who are staying together for their child?
The party is in full swing and the other housewives arrive with the exception of Kim, but who would notice either way? Kyle brings her hunky husband but strangely enough also brings her assistant, dubbed a “Lady Sitter”, this guy is in costume and enjoying the party but I have to wonder, why would you bring your assistant to a party? Camille travels with her friends/employees but that’s because she doesn’t have any unpaid friends and her husband put an entire country between them, but why does Cedric go everywhere with Lisa and why is Kyle’s assistant at this party? Is that a Beverly Hills thing? If you invite someone to a party you have to include their employees as well? That could serious affect some of these guest lists and the amount of party favors you have to purchase.
Camille arrives and getting out of the car, seems to be alone but as she walks into the party there is a hanger-on following her into the bash. Dressed in all pink fringe, Camille looked like a spy without the trench coat as she wandered around she kept one eye on Kyle at all times.
Kyle looked like she was born in the 20’s with her hair and bright red lipstick making her appear much older but I was impressed that she made an effort to talk with Camille and make amends. I think that part of the problem between these two ladies is that Kyle talks, a lot, and when she does the words that come out are all jumbled in Camille’s head and are interpreted as an insult. Kyle actually said that when they meet Camille seems like a really great person and she just doesn’t know what happens to make it all go horribly wrong. Really? I know what happens, Camille is a bit insane and with every word Kyle says, Camille is plotting her strategy against Kyle. The first part of Kyle’s assumption is wrong, the part where she thinks Camille is generally a nice person.
The two ladies seem to make peace but Lisa is skeptical because being the smartest Beverly Hills Housewife can be a burden, she seems to know that Camille is unstable. I’m sure next episode we’ll see Camille noting that Kyle only tried to make peace to keep her husband’s business dealings intact.
It tickles me that Camille continues to keep going on about people being jealous of her, I can’t imagine what anyone would be jealous of. Other than the amount of money that she had access to as Mrs. Kelsey Grammer, she doesn’t have a loving husband by her side and she certainly isn’t fulfilled by being a mother, her friends are all paid to spend time with her and she is making a complete fool of herself on national television. Jealous anyone?
When word got out that Kelsey left her for another woman she had public sympathy but now that the world is getting to know her through this show, it becomes more clear with every episode that Kelsey Grammer was running for his life.
I would like to wish everyone reading this a very Merry Christmas, if you partake, I hope Santa brings you all everything you wish for. Health and Happiness to you all! xoxo Love, Lynn
Until Next Time…..
