THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS RECAP: Season Three, Episode Eleven… “Stars and Strips”


Season Three, Episode Eleven… “Stars and Strips”

by Sandi Duffy

Yolanda is always cooking and preparing food for the cameras.  Raise your had if you think Yolanda really prepares her own food.  Yolanda also is critical of everyone in Beverly Hills who is botoxed, like Yolanda isn’t botoxed.

Ugh, the annoying Suzanne Somers who doles out medical advice and does she even have a high school diploma?  Lisa has no idea who Chrissy Snow is.  Haha.  I loved on Kathy Griffin’s My Life on the D List, when she was hiding diet soda from Suzanne.

Kyle is a big fan of her books.  Yeah, Kyle is into Kabbalah, too, so I take her opinions with a grain of salt.  Lisa TTCs about swallowing pills and other things.  She is hilarious.  I love British humor.  Suzanne doesn’t get that Lisa is making fun of her because she takes herself way too seriously.   I wish someone had walked into Yolanda;s house with a Big Mac.

RHOBH Yolanda Suzanne pills

Brandi TTCs that her ex husband bought her a stripper pole.  I’d kick my husband in the nuts if he bought me a stripper pole.  How the hell did Brandi get hired to do a stripping class in Vegas if she never stripped?  I guess that qualifies me, too.  I wish someone in Vegas would hire me to do something I have never done before.

After all the workout video nonsense on Atlanta last night, why doesn’t Brandi do a workout video?  Not that I would buy it.  As a rule I won’t buy anything Housewives related, except Skinnygirl Cosmos.  Those are good.  The margarita, not so much.

Oh holy hell, Kyle is having a sixth grade graduation party for her daughter.  No one actually “graduates” sixth grade.  They simply move from fifth grade to sixth grade.  The morally corrupt Faye Rancik is there.  So are Paul and Adrienne and Paul asks where Kyle’s sisters are.  Kyle gives lame-ass excuses.  The real answer is her sisters can’t stand her because she is sh-t-stirring bi–ch.


There is all kinds of talk about how Faye had Adrienne’s back.  Too bad Faye didn’t have Nicole Brown Simpson’s back.  Look out, Adrienne, if history is any predictor, Faye will write a book about you.

Kim is home organizing pictures.  I wonder if that’s why she missed Kyle’s party.  I can’t blame her.  I’d rather organize my socks than go to any of Kyle’s parties.

Kim wants to get a nose job.  I don’t know if it’s a good idea for an addict to undergo elective surgery that requires pain medication.  I know her problem is alcohol, but addicts typically replace one addiction for another.  I know this from watching Intervention and Celebrity Rehab.

Brandi has a friend named Adrienne, but not THAT Adrienne.  Brandi needs help packing. Give me a break.  I go once a year to Vegas with my girlfriends and I don’t need help packing.  I pack every slutty dress and shoes I own along with all my bathing suits.  Easy Peezy.

Marisa is packing with her mother and her mother kind of reminds me of my mother, lacking boundary issues.  My mother never hesitates to tell me what to wear, how to decorate, what to cook.  And her mom is right, that dress was ugly.

Lisa is asking Ken’s advice about what to bring.  These women need a lot of help to pack.  And I’m with Ken, how the hell does stripping empower women?

Marisa’s mom is angling for an invitation.  That’s pretty funny.


Ken asks the 20 million dollar question–are they staying at The Palms?

Why is Kyle doing Turbo Tax commercials?  It’s bad enough I watch her once a week on Real Housewives, now I have to see her on Turbo Tax commercials.  Am I going to be subjected to her until April 15?



Let’s not forget HagfaceKyle’s Nourage!!

The ladies are staying at the Four Seasons, which is connected to Mandalay Bay.  There’s an ice bar in Mandalay Bay called Minus 5 and it’s a lot of fun.  The put you in a parka and boots and gloves and the entire bar is made of ice.

Yolanda skipped the trip, and we get to see her prepare more food that we all know she doesn’t really prepare.  And we all know Yolanda never eats chocolate soufflés.

Yolanda TTCs that her and David are going to stay married forever.  Hasn’t David been married like a half dozen times?

David Foster with his first wife… walkin’ on the beach and all that…



The ladies have dinner in Vegas and there is talk about Kyle’s stupid store.  Are all the clothes there three sizes too small for the customers?

Brandi tells Marissa she felt bad for Dean at dinner when she was talking about him.  Kyle is ruining the entire trip so far.  No one in Vegas is on your side Kyle.  Lisa doesn’t trust you.  You treated Camille like shit in season one.  Jennifer is Brandi’s BFF and Marisa hasn’t once taken your side since she joined the show.  You are not the Queen Bee here, Kyle.  It’s nice seeing her not comfortable.

Marisa points out that Leeann Rimes is trying to be Brandi.  I really like Marisa (and her husband).

We discover that Lisa prefers the word “p*ssy” over vagina.


Kim meets with her plastic surgeon to get her nose done.  Kyle brought up doing her nose.  Kyle is the worst sister in the world.

The ladies are all at the pool the next day in what looks like evening wear, and Yolanda shows up in denim shorts.  It reminds of when they were in Ojai and Yolanda was the only one dressed casually.

Lisa asks if Adrienne is mad that Brandi isn’t supporting her business by stripping at The Palms.  I would never stay at The Palms.  It’s beautiful and has great restaurants and clubs, but it is way off The Strip.  I don’t like to be stuck in one place.  That’s why I don’t like cruises or all -inclusive resorts.

On next week’s RHOBH…

  1. Camille said in the next weeks episode that Lisa does not own SUR.Just as I figured Bravo created the place and used Lisa’s name.

    • Didn’t SH post something not too long ago saying that SUR was a front for Lisa’s stupid spin-off? May have been some truth in it after all. Hmmmmm.

      • I love SUR it is so much silly drama and it took the place of that bad bad real housewives of Atlanta 4 me my IQ dropped after that last show never thought I would miss KIM Z. love or hate her she is a fun watch and love me some Kroy, NENE got what she dreamed of the star of the saddest show ever…

        • VanderpumpRules is silly. Did you see the ep that had that shee shee shee guy on it? The guy that was Pandorka’s wedding planner. He cracks me up! SUR entered a float in the gay pride parade and he designed it and was in the parade with them.
          You’re right about ATL. Wth happened to it?! I caught the end of the last ep when Kenya was half naked and acting all cra. I’m done with that show. Unless they add the shee shee shee guy.

      • I thought what Camille meant by that was the fact that Lisa co-owns the restaurant with someone else (At least, I’m pretty sure she does). Then again, I could be wrong. Gonna have to wait till next week to see exactly what made Camille say that.

    • okay yes she is part owner of SUR sorry but she has partnered with another team as she has villa housewives and VP RUlES lisa was very open anout this but she is the majority partner thanks for ur great overview…

    • But as I recall, Lisa was opening Sur during season one, so unless Bravo was already planning something, it could not have been built just for the show, although they could have reworked the lay out to make it more camera friendsly. Lisa has never said she was the sole owner but that she has partners, so I don’t get were all this is going?

      • She was opening Sur Lounge. The restaurant was already there. Remember, she was telling Ken they needed to lease the space next door and turn it into a lounge or else it would go to a competitor. It also looked like the partner was going to have more responsibilities. I think this bit has been pretty much on the up and up.

        • Lisa and Ken own 51%of Sur and their partners own 49%. The partners work the kitchen part and Lisa and Ken run the front of the house. I just read this today and Camille was set straight.

    • That was an odd comment to make. Why would Camille care if Lisa owned SUR or any other establishment? It doesn’t really concern Camille.

      • Lynda: Camille’s comment is taken out of context… as usual! More than likely, the discussion may have to do with Adrienne’s ownership of the Palms; with Camille batting back at Lisa about her ownership of SUR. They always want controversy and always want some reason for people to watch the next episode. If this is all the better they can do, it’s getting pretty bad! TFC!! SH

  2. I would fire that staff for arguing and spending more time outside talking/arguing that actually working.But again this is a fake restaurant for Bravo and Lisa.

    • Seriously…does anyone believe Lisa vanderpump is spending her Saturday nights apologizing to customers because their steak is overdone and writing waitress schedules? bravo has outdone themselves in the ” the viewer will believe anything” department this time… thing you know they’ll be trying to tell us yolanda spends her days cooking diner…..oh wait

      • Sorry, but I’ve worked in restaurants in which the owner is actually here doing just that. Oh, wait. We’re supposed to be skeptical of everything we see or it’s not gossip? O.K. I forgot the rules. No, why in the world would Lisa waste her time in a restaurant she’s responsible for on a Saturday night? Sink or swim, hire some management and be done with it! There. Was that better? LOL!

  3. Suzanne Somers looked very bloated in her tight dress. All that ridiculous kissipoo was disgusting between Yofo and David. They are definitely in lala land. I am so glad Kim is staying away from her sisters but sad she feel she fels she needs all that plastic surgery; guess she wants that plastic LA look. And really Kyle? You need lots of surgery whereas Kim is naturally cute. Kyle’s daughter was wearing a very inappropriate dress and she looked very embarrassed by her mother’s party for her mother’s friends. The Vegas trip is just so contrived and Brandi’s pole dancing event; really? Don’t get it. These housewives formulaic episodes are so dull; need new storylines asap.

    • I had my nose done. It did not fit my face at all. It’s a family trait and not cute. I also get Botox injections. Don’t consider myself extremely vain and definitely not addicted to plastic surgery. I figure that I can afford it and it makes me feel better. What’s the harm? You would never know I do anything because I’m subtly fighting Father Time. Also I follow a clean diet and run marathons. We get one body so I’m enjoying the hell outta mine! Lol

      • I am so impressed how well you take care of yourself. Kim made the comment that Kyle said she needed a nose job and other critical comments to Kim. So I am not sure Kim is doing this because she thinks she needed it; but because Kyle said it. Kim also trie to talk the doc into several other surgeries. She may yet end up like the frozen plastic faces of many women in LA. Kyle needs to look in the mirror. Kyle is not aging well and her witch nose is getting longer and hooked.

        • I admit I haven’t watched the episode yet so I can’t comment on it but Kyle is an a-hole for sure. Dont need to watch the show to know that lol. That’s too bad of Kim is making decisions based on vyles digs. As far as why I commented in response to you Justso is because all types of people get a little work done. By it is a slippery slope and shouldn’t be used by people who don’t like themselves. It won’t help. Agree with Chemgeek – you need to love yourself because no amount of nipping and tucking will satisfy the critics. Also I think I have a normal pain threshold and having my nose done was hands down the most painful thing I’ve done. More painful than giving birth. More painful than Tamballs softcore porn bathtub scene. Bad bad bad. Full rx of pain killers!

          • I believe you!!!! I haven’t had a nose job, but I had sinus surgery, and if it’s anywhere near as painful as that, I’d keep my nose no matter what it looked like. I’d take childbirth(and they didn’t have this new fangled meds when I gave birth)over sinus surgery any day of the week. My sinus clogs up again, won’t be no more surgery for me. Took me a long time to get over it, too, don’t know why. I had a deviated septum(whatever it’s called) where the doc said my nose had grown crooked through the years and I swear he must have broken it to straighten it back. I’d always wondered if a nose job was as painful as sinus surgery, so you answered my question on that one.

      • Bubbies, Kudos to you! I am a huge fan of a person doing whatever makes him/her feel good. When choices are made from a place of self love and confidence, one cannot go wrong. Gotta enjoy life! :)

  4. Omh you write the most hilarious reviews! This line killed me ” I pack every slutty dress and shoes I own along with all my bathing suits. Easy Peezy.” Tank you for the laughs and for saving me from actually watching RHBH

  5. Sandi, you and my husband have something in commen. When my daughter was still in high school we used to always ask for a cruise on our family vacation and my husband said the same thing, ” If you want to go to Mexico or Jamica we’ll go but not on a cruise. What if it sucks, we’re stuck!” lol

  6. Great write up Sandi! I think I’m in the minority on thus reading comments this season but I think Yolanda and especially David Foster seem like the most arrogant stuck up snobs i’ve ever seen…

    • No, I’m in the minority here since I think their relationship is beautiful, and think Yolanda is completely cool.

      • I like her too. She “name drops” because those are the people she hangs around with. What should she do? Make up ficticious people so people won’t think she’s a snob? I do think it’s annoying of her to criticize other folks eating habits. That’s a real MYOB!

  7. I’m starting to go sour on YoFo, can’t stand the big annoying fuss she makes over her hubbend like he’s got no arms or legs and can’t do anything for himself. The best part of this episode was that it was virtually SWINE-less!

    • that is so funny, i didn’t even notice that taylor was not in it…. on another note thanks for a great review again Sandy. Can’t wait to see what is up Camille’s sleeve, she looks like she is on fire next week. That camille bitchiness has been MIA for sometime now!

    • Her Beigeness is a goddess. I was scrambling for my pencil to take notes on how to keep the perfect marriage going: (1) Call him “my love” at every opportunity (2) cook him a meal; (3) “gif him sex”‘

      If those don’t work, I’ll just gag him with lemons.

    • I find it absolutely sweet and refreshing to see all the time and attention Yolanda puts into her relationship with her husband. I haven’t been married in a very long, long time but if and when the opportunity presents itself again, I would treat my husband the same way. I seriously do not get what the big deal is about treating one’s husband like a king, when he obviously treats her very well and loves her.

      • I kinda agree. It’s nice to see someone who’s not fighting over fake stuff. Maybe it’s because I have respect for David Foster’s work (even tho he comes across as a bit of a tool), but I don’t hate these scenes.

        • I guarantee they will be married for 40 years. My grandparents loved each other this way, and treated each other this way – they had the happiest life and marriage. I lived 5 min away from them and saw them all the time, spent the night at their house all the time. I love my mom…awesome woman, but she never treated my dad this way. He divorced her and married a woman who treats him like Yolanda treats David and they have a super happy marriage. Guys love support when they get home, and a relaxed atmosphere. Woman are nuturing by nature, so what is wrong with actually combining that. I have to work 50 hours a week, and I married a socio path – but given the chance..if I had a wonderful guy in my life, I would relish the chance to treat thim that way – and I guarantee I would get love and respect in return.

  8. It was fun watching them sit around and dog Leeann Rimes. As soon as the show was over (that Leeann says she never watches) she probably called the stripper pole store and ordered one STAT! They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but I think Leeann just has a sick obsession to be Brandi. She’s a true weirdo.

    Personally, I find the word “pu$$y” a lot more distasteful than vagina. Somehow, when Lisa said it though, it sounded kinda cute. Must be that British accent.

    Marrisa’s mom needs a hair makeover, whether she realizes it or not. Whoever these folks are telling her that her hair style looks good, is lying. They just don’t want to hurt her feelings.

    I felt bad for Paul yet once again. He’s trying to be courteous and help Maggie Mae Maloof by serving her some food, and as usual she rejects his gesture. Her disdain for this guy is so totally obvious. I’m soooo glad he is rid of her.

    • The Brits don’t find it offensive. P*ssy was the running tag line of “Are You Being Served” a comedy staple of PBS for years and years.

      • Love that show, Aunt Dorsey!! I used to watch it with my Grandfather. He was nearly deaf before he passed away but we’d turn the volume way up and laugh and have a great time!! I still watch it every so often…so many of the actors and actresses are gone now…makes me kinda sad.

    • So funny about Marisas mom’s hair.

      I watched this ep with my sister and no sooner than I said outloud ‘Her hair is so 50′s awful, who let her wear it outside like that’ – she said that she gets so many compliments on it and wouldn’t change it. LOL!

    • Oops, I’m in moderation even though I wasn’t using it in a sexual way, so I’ll rephrase it. The “p” word, synonym for kitty cat, was frequently used in that British show, “Are You Being Used” as a running double entendre and always got rolling laughs. Apparently the Brits find it hysterically funny, so maybe Lisa doesn’t find it nasty. That comedy has been running on PSB forever and they have never bleeped it.

    • What I find interesting is that although LeAnn has gone out of her way to emulate Brandi, the one thing she hasn’t done it gotten pregnant. Think she’s afraid history will repeat?

      • Abt LeecrazyAnn getting pregnant, I think that 1) what she makes her body endure (laxatives and god knows what eating disorder) can’t be good to get preggers, 2) She must be scared shitless to damage her figure anyway. Maybe she could ask Adrienne for some surrogagy tips.

    • I hated that Paul and Adrienne scene awful too… He tries to help her with her plate, and he can’t do anything right… If he had only realized that all he needed to do is drive throught Micky D’s, and she would have been happier then a pig in shit!!!

  9. I agree about the palms being off the strip. I stayed there in vegas and you had to take a cab to get to the strip. I think that maybe that is why it is in financial trouble. when you stay in vegas, you want to be on the strip, not off the strip!!! (at least in my opinion)

    • I wanted to stay there just because of the Maloof name, but when I realized it cost the same amount as the hotel’s on the strip, I stayed at the Mandalay Bay/Four Seasons instead.

    • I stayed at the Palms in 2007. It was ok – typical Vegas young crowd. I go to Vegas fairly often because my Mom lives up there.

      One thing I’ll say at the Palms, the tarot card reader/psychic was very accurate! I had some money and time to kill, so i asked for a reading. I first asked about my 2 kids, and how they would turn out – oldest would have money from a dr or similar stable profession, and my youngest would be famous.

      I said, “oh, right”, then i asked about me and if I’d meet anyone. She said, yes, a man with a tie, meaning he was in business and did well for himself, 2 kids (for a total of 4), and I would meet him by the end of the coming August (it was April when I did the reading). She said it would lead to marriage (we were married 5 years later, and I met him August 27).

      At the time, still sounded like a scam, but then she said there is an older woman, something with the moon, died of cancer. Said she did not like my first husband and was glad he was not with me anymore. My grandmother’s name was Luna Mae. she died of cancer when my Dad was graduating high school.

      So, hotel-wise, the Palms is ok. But psychic-wise, I can’t complain at all. :)

  10. Lisa co owns sur with another couple but I think Lisa owns majority share. She had this restaurant 4 2 years now. I think Camille needs to do something productive then sit and judge pl.

    • And as I recall, Sur was being built during season one, and Lisa made it clear that she and Ken had partners. Why risk all your own money, when you can bring in investors who already know your track record and are therefore willing to put up the money and let you run the business? Besides, we’ve seen one of her investor’s during an episode of Vanderpump Rules, when they were talking at Lisa’s home. It’ll be interesting to hear exactly what Camille says.

  11. Great recap Sandi! Gotta say it took me a minute to figure out why this episode didn’t seem as annoying as usual……and then it hit me….traylor trash was no where to be found! Thank you jesus sign of the cross!

    • Strangely enough, I didn’t even miss her. I hope Bravo notices how well things went with very little Adrienne and no Taylor.

      Now, tell me this. Why was Faye standing next to Kyle while the family was talking about Kyle’s daughter’s 6th grade graduation? I think that woman just cannot keep herself away from cameras, she wants fame so bad.

      • Faye wants this gig bad… Not for a moment do I think that Adrienne is best friends with any woman.. She likes the front and center to much… Faye is no ones friend.. Look what she did to her other friend, wrote a nasty book to make a quick buck.. Didn’t care about Nicole’s kids… Her face is so ugly, I am surprised my television doesnt crack when she appears..

  12. Trailer Trash not there and the other HW hag Adrienne/Maggie Mae only made a cameo appearance.Can not stand how rude AD was to Paul.Thank God he got rid of her ugly ass.

    YoFo on WWHL and she is so arrogant with Hermes belt and interchangeable buckles.She cooks yeah right!!

    Wondering why Kim has a house man/Milton in that small house and just her.

    • I actually did not notice at all that Taylor wasn’t in the episode. Guess that shows how much she’s added to the show thus far. Seriously, Kim added more to this current season of ATL with the five episodes she’s been on than Taylor has all season.

    • I was wondering about the “house man” think too. Kinda strange….

      So tell me. Why is it so hard to believe that Yolanda knows her way around a kitchen AND wears Hermes belts? It’s not like she was making an announcement about the belt. Andy brought it up.

      • I agree that it’s not hard to believe that she cooks for her husband from time to time , but when she said that she planted all those lemons herself- I almost fell out of my chair. You cant maintain the looks and plant a lemon plantation :). Maybe she stood by the workers while they planted majority of the trees while she did a few just for fun-nothing wrong with that! She doesnt have to overdo it, her sweet relationship with hubby is enough for me :)

    • I take my hair piece off to you Miz Sandi on getting the recap done so quickly. I needed a stiff bourbon just to watch that mess and Vanderplump Rules with StassInfection. But it was easier than I anticipated, what with Trailertrash being absent and all. Glad to see from the shadow of things to come that maybe Camille is reverting to her Season I self.

    • Well, ya know? Up until this point she’s really only been a part of the furnishings. Perhaps she’s realizing she really would like to be invited for another season.

  13. YoFo toted all that food up those steps to eat outside.After a long day/flight I am sure David wanted to walk up all those stairs to eat.Really staged the cooking eating.Life is just so wonderful @ the Foster home cough cough.

    • After she put the food down outside, she went back to the kitchen and greeted David. I could only think about the bugs outside, and possibly the dogs scarfing down the chicken. Who leaves food just sit outside, and then eats it?? Yuk.

  14. If you co-own a restaurant and hire great managers to implement your style and rules correctly, the owner wouldn’t have to really be there at all, for the most part.

    I didn’t think I would like Vanderpump Rules, but now I really hate Stassi, so, now I like it just for that reason.
    Lisa is a bit player on her own show. That kinda cracks me up. lol.

  15. Still watching – but noted how Brandi said she wanted to show her softer side and Byle saying maybe people would be nicer to you if you did. And I thought back to the very first time Brandi was on the show. It’s was a tacky party Byle was throwing and all the girls got in a corner and laughed a Brandi for wearing heels with her crutches. Very mean girl high school. Next time, at Adrienne’s pool party and Brandi’s young son peed in public and Byle went on and on about what a bad parent Brandi was. And then there was game night. I wonder why Kyle thinks people are mean to Brandi because she’s tough. When in fact, Byle was mean to Brandi from the get go – who wouldn’t put up their guard?

    Just musings…

    • Doris, you are sooo right about Byle.,and dont forget how Byle drops the Fbomb but this season she *acts* like Mother Teresa when she hears it… I am loving Brandi and I loved when she shoved that oyster or clam down her throat, almost wet my pants lol.

    • Yes, and I’m still waiting for that Kyle person to show she has a heart… She is nothing but a back stabbing bitch… What a difference a day makes.. At her daughters party, they all trashed Brandi… Why bring this crap up at her own daughters party, gossip! For crying out loud, if we have to watch this grad party, keep it light… Then unto Vegas.. She is all nice to Brandi… It just annoys me, she is such a trouble maker!

  16. It was so pleasant not to see Swine at all! She would have been drunk on her ass and screaming to draw all the attention to herself. Everyone seemed more relaxed without her there. Expect for Kyle, of course, because she was obviously uncomfortable without one of her pit vipers present. Hope to see less and less of Swine until poof! she’s gone.

    • Maybe SWINE was actually in all the scenes but she was blackout drunk on the floor so we couldn’t see her. It sure was nice not to listen to SWINE turn every conversation back onto her life and “poor me” b.s.

  17. JOLOT. I totally agree w/you when you say that yo & david Foster are snobs. They are always “name dropping”. Last week she told the ladies that her hubby couldn’t come tonight because Barbra Striesand is @their house w/ David. She acts like its no big deal that Barbra Striesand is @ her house, but she is clearly BRAGGING about it. Im also calling her out for being a “FAKE”!!!

    • I think fake would be if she told people Striesand was at her house and she actually wasn’t. This is what he does for a living – these are the people who hire him. It’s just a fact.

      • Yeah, I don’t get all the animosity toward Yolanda. It’s either she’s a snooty name dropper, or she feels superior because she chooses to put her husband’s needs first. I don’t freakin’ get it, but it is pretty hilarious!

        • I don’t get it either. Pretty strong feelings towards her this week. If I had a wealthy husband and didn’t want for anything. It would be my pleasure to present a beautiful home and take care of him. But, David doesn’t seem to demand it, he just seems to appreciate it and that makes all the difference.

          • Isn’t this what the entire franchise is supposed to be about? The ultra- rich who live a life us normal folks don’t?

            As much as I love YoFo for finally bringing it (and not ending up being a Messy Marco/Gorga type of a fraud), YoFo wouldn’t touch a starving artist, let alone make dinner for him, no matter deep her connection and love for him was with a 50 foot pole. She’s all about “the life”, and the bigger the bank account, the more in love she is.

            She can’t bitch about her husband or have a “normal” relationship with him b/c he’s got hot women of all ages who will “do him” for a Chanel bag. Must suck to have to live your life catering to your rich husband (whom you have a solid pre-nup with) so some 25 year old hussy doesn’t get in the way of your ocean view.

    • This is BH after all. Yolanda is the first housewife to show the glamorous side of BH without being a total twat (Kyle) an alcoholic con artist (Taylor) or a pill popping, meth smoking, coke snorting washed up has been child star (Kim) Viva Yolanda!!!

  18. That yolanda foster just likes to feel superior by playing the European woman’s ” I am a better wife than any American woman could be” card….I enjoy serving my man, he is the king of the house, bla, blah, blah, yah until she is old news, then it will be his money that is the King….such bullshit.
    It’ s the mentality that your whole goal is to “hang onto your man” by being so indispensible crap that many foreign women have. They do not grow up playing softball,volleyball or any ball. It isnt feminine……so backward.

    • What? Just because she chooses to put her husband first and is old fashioned in that way, doesn’t mean she feels she is superior to American women! Actually, that’s kinda funny. LOL!

      • I don’t think the issue is that she caters to her husband,it’s that she crams it down everyone’s throats, we’re starting to gag

      • I know, they don’t bother me either. I mean she baked him a damn chicken. Whew, like that’s difficult. She ruined his dessert. It’s obvious she doesn’t cook very often, but he just got home from a biz trip so she tried bc she loves him.

        • I find Yolanda a very good wife. So what if she wants to cook and clean and take care of her husband, that’s her business and even if she doesn’t do it every day this is her way of showing him she loves him and wants to be with him. Money doesn’t buy happiness, you make it your way. JMO

      • Bsbfankaren, I’m with you…I like Yolanda, too. My mom catered to my stepdad like that, too, and they were married about fifty years before he died. She made sure she cooked him three meals a day, he was the boss of the house, and she never worked outside the home at all.

    • Learn english you stoopid Mexican bastard. That is my not so very pleasant impression of the haughty Yolanda Foster. Holier than thou. Better than everybody else. Shove your lemons up your ass.

      • That was when we saw a different side of Yolanda. While I like that she is old fashioned and enjoy seeing that part of her life, the comment to a man who probably has a large family to feed that he needs to start learning english at night after he has physically exerted himself at work all day is delusional. That’s when her inability to relate and to think about things outside of her own experiences was on display. I didnt care for her promoting the diet that she clearly doesnt have enough background knowledge /education to support. It was idiotic to suggest that recovering addict Kim go on that starvation diet! Wow. I hope she sticks to a more likable side of her personality .

        • I know some people thought she was being rude to the guy by telling him he needs to learn English but in his line of work, he will never be anything more than a laborer if he does not learn English. My ex husband is in the construction industry and is bilingual. If one of his workers is unable to communicate with the customer that largely limits how far they will be able to advance.

              • that is being ridiculous to all the of immigrants who have come here and learned english. Do you know how many chinese immigrants have come here and learned english..vietnamese. Why does everyone tip toe around hispanics? They are as intelligent as any immigrant that has come here and learned english. Don’t treat them like they are inferior – one night class for a few months and they could learn plenty. Do you know how many americans work full time and go to night class to learn Spanish? I have worked 60 hours a week, have to care for children, cook, clean, and taken night classes to learn Spanish. Get off your Spanish people work too hard to learn English crap. NO one deserves coddling when so many immigrants have gone before to learn english adn so many of us have gone to night classes to learn conversational spanish.

              • And “press 1 for English or continue on for Spanish (which is said in Spanish)”. Where’s the “press 2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9″ for Chinese/Korean/Vietnamese/Hungarian/Dutch/ French/German/Russian/Italian, etc.?”

              • I assume that it stems from being the largest minority group unlike Hungarians or Russians. I’m not bothered by it and I doubt that there are a lot of immigrants who sit around worrying about why there is no button to press for their native language LOL. I am sorry that it bothers you so much, didn’t mean to get anyone upset. Just stating things the way the appear to me ;). K?

              • Miss, while I agree with everyone else that people that live here should learn da language(have immigrant brother-in-law) I can see that you are a very kind harted person. Your response to that scene is EXACTLY what the producers wanted to evoke in viewers like you. That is why they suggested YoLo do it. The producers are setting her up to have at least one “hard ball” question come reunion time.

              • I understand how you feel, but why should it be our responsibility to criticize and judge all of the people who do not speak English? No one is coddling anyone in this country. Joanna Krupa and Adrianna also learned English but their contribution to our society amounts to what exactly? With all of the issues in the world, this one is just petty. I care more about how people treat each other more than what language they speak.. just my humble opinion.

          • Exactly and IMO, the politically correct pearl clutching over that comment was hysterically disproportionate to the actual “crime” committed.

            • I see it as being considerate and tactful. Jargon such as “political correctness” has been beaten to death by its opponents and proponents. It is used to push personal views and agenda while ridiculing any notion that genuine human decency can possibly exist. I don’t understand how being kind to those who do not hurt or engage you in anyway is wrong? Or should we all be so empty that we no longer care to comment on what we see as the wrong (e.g. treatment of that man)?It is much easier to slap a label and move on..always has been..

          • Learning English and getting a promotion would be ideal, I agree :) . But until she walks in his shoes, it is insensitive to offer such advice. I can see that she may not have realized that there are other components to that man’s life, who unlike her had to travel a very different road in life. He may very well want to learn English and get promoted, who wouldn’t? But what if in addition to his own family he also has to support his parents and parents of his wife? He may be so chained by survival that there may not be anymore of him to stretch. He fills the job that otherwise would need to be filled by another hardworking soul.. he is doing the work so that his employer (YoFo) can have the free time to stand there and lecture him lol. He deserves respect for his work…period. Maybe he’s working so that his kids could have the chance to learn English and have an easier life. Maybe he just doesn’t care. We just dont know…but I do hope that like you said he can learn the language and get better positions. :)

            • I think Yolanda did mention how difficult it was for her when she came to the US. She learned the language, she was being helpful. My mom came from Greece, she was embarrassed to speak English because people laughed at her, especially in the factory where she worked. When I became a teen I sat down with her and taught her the alphabet, numbers and words. She feels much more confidant now.

              • With tears running down my cheeks, I thank you for sharing yours and your mothers beautiful story. Sometimes when the help comes from the wrong person at the wrong time it can make the person who you are trying to help feel inadequate and ridiculed. When your English is minimal, it is very easy to feel laughed at by people who are actually trying to be friendly–lost in translation.If she cared so much she could have talked to him in private, and not in front of others. It was not about him, it was really about Yolanda. You sat down with your mom and offered her real help, that’s the difference! …and I am very happy that she is more confident. :) you two are wonderful !

      • I thought she told him very nicely. I think it should be mandatory to learn to speak English if they live here. I think the majority can speak English, they’d just rather that we not know they can speak it. No, I’m not predjudiced, I have some Mexican half brothers and a sister.

        • IN CA you are required to learn Spanish in the sixth grade. I we are required to learn their language because our countries our neighbors. I don’t think it outrageous for them to do the same if they live here.

          • When did it become a requirement for students in California to learn Spanish? My son is a freshman in high school and learning Spanish wasn’t even an option, let alone a requirement, in 6th grade. Spanish was offered as an elective in grades 7 and 8. Taking a foreign language is a requirement for graduation, but at his school they have a choice between Spanish and Chinese.

              • It’s required in my son’s sch as well. We live in TX. They start teaching it in K. His sch goes up to 8th grade and they’re required to take Spanish every year.

        • I cant begain to tell you how frustrating it is to try and explain something to someone who understands little english and speaks less of it. I deal with it most days. I am not talking about people just off the boat but people who are living and working in THIS country. but refuse to speak good english. Most days I want to pound my head on my desk.

  19. I watched Honey Boo Boo’s family enjoy Thanksgiving dinner on an episode for the first time this week and just finished watching the housewives in Vegas. The difference? Money and location! Pretty self absorbed bunch! I actually like the Honey Boo crew a bit better…ugh!

    • Honey Boo Boo and her family don’t give a hayfever sneeze what people think, they are who they are and probably greatful for what they have! Then we watch the Brandy Show, opps I mean HWoBH, who gives a hoot anymore about Brandy and and her demons anymore, so over it! Boring!!! I like YoFo, she’s just being a good wife and taking care of herself. Lisa must be having money problems, cause her blouses have buttons missing they only button up to her boobs. If Camille puts Lisa in place more power to her! Maybe Honey Boo Boo can teach some of these women to be real!

  20. YoFo,
    Tsk Tsk I noticed you failed to cut your man’s chicken in bite sized pieces for him. And you call yourself a wife? The man just got home from a grueling trip of writing tuneage or polishing Barbra Streisand’s shoulders or some such and you give him a knife and expect him to cut it himself!?!?!? Heck you even had him hike up to get it. Guuuuurl, you better step up your game. Whats next? Crappy coffee? Shamey Shamey.


  21. Interesting mean girl party at Kyle’s. Kyle. Faye. Adrienne. But more interesting is how the family friends didn’t seem to appear until after the “happy couple” left. Almost looked like they were shot at different times and I couldn’t help but wonder if Adrienne felt she didn’t want to be amongst the hoi polloi.

    • I’m thinking Paul and A were obligated to go. They ate and ran. A looked kooky when Kyle opened the door-like a weak attempt to be funny. It may be that A was uncomfortable around their happy family friends.

    • What I found most interesting was that Paul sniped a little at Adrienne when they were getting food. Although we are being led to believe that the issue is all Brandi, as we already know their marriage was on the rocks and I would imagine it’s hard to pretend to be happy for the cameras.

      • Yes – she did the same thing when Taylor had a party. Clearly, Adrienne is no fun around a chafing dish! She’s been awful to him since season one – a guy can only take so much, after all. I’m sure she’s already belittling her new guy.

        • I bet you are right. And IF what has been hinted at(that Adrienne has an ED) is true then the recent picture of her at McD’s with the kid is the way she will skirt the eating issue all together. She will just fed him there and claim that Bernie fed her the good stuff at home. Total food avoidance complete. And the kid wont give a crap one way or another. And she of the tinsel hair will just add more and more extensions as hers continues to fall out from malnutrition. Hollywierd extensions they sure do cover a multitude of sins in the malnutrition arena. At least Paul did show interest. HOWEVER he never should have pointed it out on camera IF that is indeed her issue… one of her many issues. Good way to get a fork in an eye on the wrong day.

          • She doesn’t look like she suffers from malnutrition, but it’s hard to tell with all the fillers, botox, etc.

  22. O.K. I’ll just say it. Yes I believe that Yolanda cooks. although she likely does not cook everyday, and since she and I are the same age and I don’t have wrinkles or use botox, I do believe she could indeed be botox free. I don’t scrunch up my forehead, and am already getting my daughter in the habit of not doing it either. Just sayin’.

  23. Kyle must’ve gotten dressed for the party in the dark. I’ve seen such dresses on a bride or groom’s mother at weddings. And was that mauve? Wow.

  24. Watched RHOBH tonight for the first time this season and threw up in my mouth a few times. To all you clever commenters, I just MUCH rather come here as usual and get the straight sheet from you!

  25. I enjoyed the girls in Vegas, I thought that it looked like fun… But that graduation party for Sophia was lame.. She had her friends and family… How she explained why her sisters weren’t there was ridiculous.. Kathy had a toothache… Whatever… Kim had a sick child… Fake Faye stirring the trouble again. About Brandi, Kyle and Maurice right there to get brownie points for sticking up for Paul and Adrienne.. Insane… Let it go, it’s run it’s coarse… But what I thought was the most annoying, Maurice saying where is my dad, he’ll he knows he was sitting next to his mother…he wanted camera time for his dad.. He has become a star in his own mind. Does he really think we give a crap about his family.. Hell we can barely stand him… For so reason, I think they want their own show… Introducing his family, to see if we like them.. We don’t like you Maurice, you’re a girly boy… Tired of you… Tired of Faye, and Kyle can stop stirring the pot, don’t like her at all… By the way, Brandi was pretty good on that pole, eat your heart out Leeann… I wish I had legs like hers, they go on forever…

    • Lol, right? Kathy will go to any and every party unless it’s hosted by Kyle. Kim would rather have a nose job than hang out with Kyle. Translation Kyle: you’re not very enjoyable.

  26. If Sophia goes to the same school Mo went to, it means he’s been here for a long time – I always thought he had an accent. What’s that about?

    It must be a private school since the schools in BH are K-8 and Kyle said she was going to a new school. So….Mo’s parent must have some money themselves. Anyone know their background?

    • Mo-reese’s father is a realtor I think, and his mother has dual doctoral degrees, one in sexual something or other (counseling, maybe?). I really like Mo-reese’s mom. She seems sweet, genuine and elegant. I felt badly for her after her speech at Sophia’s graduation. Kyle immediately brought the attention to herself and sobbed about her own parents not being there. She made her daughter cry about it too. Bad parent and DIL. She needs to be appreciative and respectful of the family present.

      • I found this on another site:

        Mauricio Umansky was born in Mexico City D.F, his mother is Dr. Estella Sneider, Ph.D , his father is Eduardo Umansky. Eduardo and Estella were married for 30 years until they decided to divorce. Estella and Eduardo are good friends and family continues sharing family time together.
        Both Estella Sneider and Eduardo Umansky were born in Mexico City. Mauricio has a younger sister named Sharon, who was as well born in Mexico City. Mauricio’s Grandparents were born in Minsk, Kiev, Lithuania, Lima Peru. Great Grandparents were born in Russia, Lithuania, Greece and Turkey. We are all Jewish.
        Source is myself….I am Estella Sneider (Mauricio Umansky’s Mother) aka: Estella Umansky, Estella Sneider-Umansky, Dr. Estella Sneider, Dr. Estella Umansky, Dr. Estella Sneider Umansky

      • I like his mother, too. But I thought it was weird when she said “not everyone is lucky enough to have their grandparents around.” It was kinda passive aggressive, like “You better appreciate me.” Especially since the kid she was talking to doesn’t have both her grandparents.

        • To me, that was messed up. Who says something like that knowing that the child she is speaking to only had one set of grandparents – and she happens to be one half of the set? I don’t know that I like Mo’s mamma after that comment. What was her point? Maybe her brain got caught up in the face lift she had and her common sense ended up in the “medical waste” bag on the way to the incinerator along with the extra skin?

          • I’m with you. It was a very insensitive speech for a grandmother to make at her grand daughter’s graduation party or ever. It’s no wonder Mauritzio is a douche.

    • He is new to this season. Last season she had a housekeeper that was a lady. She would roll her eyes at Kim when she would go threw baby pics of her kids. This house boy seems to be sweet.

      • She sure does go through pictures of her kids a lot. It’s always so sad…I feel like she’s living in the past

      • Kim and the houseboy need to have a romance. He’ll be houseboy/lover/nurse. While she sits, points, grinds chicken salad to hell and back, he’ll smile and say, “What a good idea.” In love, they’ll be oblivious to stares and whispers.

        • Lol! He shows her the attention her sister never did. Kim will pay him in chicken salad. It’s perfect!

    • to the people above. Yolanda absolutely doesn’t cram cooking down everyone’s throat. I guarantee Bravo showed up to film..that is what she was doing. She has been sickly throughout the filming and probably wasn’t doing much. Since David was gone for two weeks they had to film something. Heavens! I have to work hours and hours a day – single mom, crappy life – boy I love how Yolanda is. She is not belittling American woman. She just has a nice life, a great husband that appreciates her. This is what all the class warfare our politicians are inciting us to feel does to everyone. How dare they have a nice life and treat each other with love – they are evil people and should be shot – or they should give all of us who made really stupid decisions all fo their money. Or please be unhappy and a train wreck like Taylor We don’t want to see a loving couple. How dare they act like that !

      • I absolutely agree. I’d rather see her admit to knowing how to cook and actually do it, than pretend not to know how, ala the entitled Mrs.Dubrow, (who feels it is somehow beneath her–but make a claim as to being a “foodie” all 118lbs of her.) So far, everything about Yolanda is aspirational to me.

        • Most women who grew up well and elegantly know how to cook and do something in the kitchen. Dubrows unwillingness in the kitchen shows that she didn’t , dubrow most likely grew up in a normal middle class home where her mother cooked cuz she had to, and thinks not cooking is a sign of money and class, lack of kitchen skills is a lack of sophistication IMO, no matter how you grew up. Dubrow has that stupid nouveau riche mentality about cooking.

          • OMG–you just described my cousin whom I loathe to the very fiber of my being. She thinks she’s noveau riche and loves to talk about how she can’t cook. Irony is, her mother is a gourmet cook, and reallyl ANYONE can cook if they know how to read. It’s called a cookbook!

              • If she did it for BRAVO => she’s stoopid. If it was not BRAVO’s idea => she’s stoopid. Stoopid equals stoopid, period. ;)

      • I agree. Yolanda is not belittle an American woman and her traditional values when it comes to her husband and family are refreshing . There is so little happiness left on these shows that I don’t have it in me to get through the entire episode. Who can possibly derive any entertainment from the never ending misery?YoFo and Lisa is the only reason I force myself to watch BH. The only thing I disagree on is that class warfare incites hate for Yolanda. PS:Sorry to read that you feel that way about your life. I wish you to find the happiness you see in YoFO’s life. Being a single mom is not easy, and you deserve a break!

      • Nancy it not just cooking, I think yofo cooks and knows how to run a home very well, as I’ve mentioned before, it is to be commended. But what I think bothers some is that she can be annoying in her presentation in front of the camera. I think it’s great she has a nice life and marriage, and prefer that than all the misery. But sometimes she’s just a bit much, and seems to stand on a higher ground looking down………..then why did you go on a reality show if that’s the case.? Lisa has a fab life and marriage but doesn’t take herself seriously and manages to endear herself to most with that wit. So its all in the delivery with Yolanda that’s all

  27. I know Swine wasnt in the episode but i feel batter saying SHUT UP SWINE after every epsode.

  28. Whenever Kim Richards appears onscreen you have the answer to the question, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?

  29. ms. sh did have a clip of “baby jane” re: kim & kyle was too funny oooh also that video of foster with his 1st wife on this thread. that’s what vickie’s brooksi desires to be but he lacks the talent and $$
