I Hate Jill Zarin Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Preview Jan 26, 2011
Explain to me please, Bravo why you do a double elimination last week on Top Chef All Stars then you don’t air a new episode tonight, what’s up with that? Is this some obscure holiday that I wasn’t privy to? I’ll never understand Bravo’s scheduling.
In any case this gives us a great opportunity to preview The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion show airing tonight (so I’m told) on Bravo. I wouldn’t be surprised if Bravo pulled a Super Bowl stunt and had a by-week between the finals and the big game, I kid…it will be on tonight. Unless Andy Cohen is in a mood and decides not to air it…joking!
Bravo has released a few preview scenes on BravoTV.com and you can view them here:
One of the video’s is the ladies playing a WWHL style game called “who said it?” Andy reads some lines that were uttered by the Housewives and the ladies have to guess who said that. I suppose it was Andy’s way of breaking the ice. One of the questions Andy posed to Camille was, who said this, “My 4-year old son was more mature than my 40-year old husband”. Camille couldn’t figure out who said that. She really is an absolute moron, Adrienne is the only one who has a 4-year old son. Wow!
I always like to take note of where the ladies sit on the couches. It seems that the two that sit on either side of Andy are typically either the most popular or the most notorious.
Camille and Kyle snagged those prime seats next to Cohen, with Taylor next to Kyle. On the other side Camille is on Andy’s right with Kim in the middle and Adrienne on the end. Rounding out Kyle’s couch is Lisa on the end. In later scenes however, we see Kyle sitting next to her sister Kim and holding her hand, it appears at some point Kyle and Camille switched places.
I have to admit that I was a bit surprised that Kim wasn’t sitting next to her sister Kyle initially and why Lisa was on the end with Taylor in a more prominent spot than Lisa. Maybe Taylor earned that spot by starting fights with Kim.
Another preview clip features Cohen showing us all of the ladies shoes and naming each designer then choosing his favorite. I have to agree that Adrienne’s $995 Louboutin sparklers were my favorite as well. I noted too that all of the women on Camille’s couch are wearing deep purple dresses while Kyle’s couch are all in black. Except for all the bling, they could all be attending a funeral. Lisa has the most amazing necklace on, take a look at it, gorg!
In yet another clip, Taylor actually has the nerve to start more arguments between sisters at the reunion when she’s questioned about her comment threatening to take Kim out back and go all Oklahoma on her ass. Taylor at one point turns to Kyle and says, “should we talk about her (Kim’s) state of mind at that dinner table? She’s about to push me there.” Kyle just puts her head down and won’t look anyone in the eye and doesn’t answer Taylor’s question.
Taylor has a lot of nerve going there, she is obviously ready to spill the beans about something, assuming that it is Kim’s drinking again, regardless of whether or not Kim was drinking, Taylor has absolutely no right to “go there”. Taylor was asked a legitimate question from a fan of the show by Andy Cohen she was only attempting to divert the heat from herself onto Kim.
Does Taylor really believe that she is going to get Kyle to take her side over her sister. The fact that Taylor is trying to drive a wedge between the two sisters again makes me want to go all Chicago on Taylor’s ass. I guarantee Chicago is tougher than Oklahoma. Lisa had the foresight to see that Taylor was one to watch out for, Taylor is a troublemaker and she then runs and hides and lets everyone else battle it out.
Taylor did the same thing at her birthday party while lecturing Kim, she made comments that were trying to imply that Kyle would back Taylor over Kim in this argument and the Kyle came over and did exactly that, went against Kim and joined Taylor leaving Kim defensive and she started to lash out. Taylor started the entire thing and everyone fell right into her trap.
I think Taylor is the type of woman who is uncomfortable with the three-women friends scenario. She is that girl, the one who has to cause trouble so that she can have the one friend to herself. Taylor was catty with Lisa because I think Taylor sensed that Lisa was on to her nonsense. Then Taylor knew she had to get Kim out of the picture in order to have Kyle all to herself. We all know one of “those” women, don’t we?
The Camille and Kyle argument is also rehashed as we knew that it would be, it was the center of the whole show. Camille practically admitted that Kyle never said the words, “who would be interested in you without your husband”. Camille got that vibe from Kyle but I think its clear that Kyle never said those words, it was simply a feeling that Camille had yet all season Camille insisted that Kyle actually said those words. Camille overreacted and continues to call herself a victim of bullying (channeling Kelly Bensimon?) The scene ended with Camille assuring everyone that she doesn’t lie, “I’m not a liar”. That’s questionable.
Since when did someone defending themselves become a bully? The ladies on St John were defending themselves against Kelly’s attacks and suddenly they became bullies. Kyle was defending herself against Camille’s accusations and now Kyle is a bully? Sorry all you crazy Housewives, none of you have been bullied on television. There have been arguments and accusations, that is not bullying!
Kyle is right, it’s the “buzz word” right now and it is meant to gain sympathy but it is over used and has lost its true meaning. That is the only thing Kyle is right about, she refused to get all the facts during the finale, she attacked her sister assuming that Kim started with Taylor when in fact it was Taylor who got in Kim’s face and started the argument. Taylor’s excuse that Kim stood up is ridiculous, it was Taylor’s words and tone of voice that created the entire battle and it caused a huge fight between two sisters and for that Taylor is Beverly Hill’s most hated housewife at the moment. She has long since taken the title away from Camille Grammer.
We’ve all seen the previews of Lisa’s husband Ken explaining what happened between his family and Cedric Martinez, the long suffering houseguest from hell that Lisa had defended for months against her husband. She obviously enjoyed having Cedric at her disposal but he was getting a whole lot more than he was giving. If this guy had played his cards right, he could have possibly stayed with the Vanderpump’s indefinitely. As Ken pointed out, Cedric got way too comfortable and over confident.
Had Cedric kept to himself a bit more and let this couple have their space, done a few chores, filled up the vehicles gas tanks, he may have had a longer stay in paradise. Cedric was right there when Lisa was choosing a dress for Taylor’s party, he was lying out by the pool while Lisa and Ken were having a nice lunch out there, he was ever present and in their face at all times. Maybe had he gone out with friends or even kept to his room a bit more often, he probably wouldn’t have annoyed the man of the house quite so much and may have been allowed to stay longer. He attended every function with the Vanderpumps, rather than staying home once in a while or making some friends of his own, it just became too much Cedric all the time.
In the end, it was clear that the Vanderpumps had every intention of treating Cedric like one of their children. Someone who was welcome there on weekends and for holiday dinners but that wasn’t enough for Cedric. Cedric burned those bridges and after many years of support and love from the Vanderpumps, he’s finished.
Part one of the two-part reunion airs tonight on Bravo.
Until Next Time…
