them. More family, more fun, less catty b*tches.
We take off with Brandi & Yolanda to Sacramento where Brandi’s goals are to make nice with her dad and do a reading for her fans. It seems like this trip couldn’t come at a better time for Brandi,
since she has definitely being battling some dark times with the loss of her dog. She has cried more this season than she has screamed “STFU” which says a lot. Yolanda, was a really good person to come along. She is level headed andsupportive and they have a genuine friendship, it’s a rarity in the hood of BH. All in all it seemed like the trip was a success!
I also thought it was nice to have an insight into the Richards/Umansky family. In the early days of housewives, the families and their traditions were a big part of the show and as time has gone on it hasdefinitely shifted to being about the conflicts between the ladies. I thoroughly enjoy seeing the families and say “I” in agreement of having more of that. It was nice that Kyle shared those moments. Genuine and true, again a rarity in BH.
Joyce and her hubby decide to go for gun lessons. Ugh. I can’t help but say I am team Brandi here- Joyce kinda gets under my skin. She always tries to the look the part (i.e. skull and cross bones shirt for shooting, entire golf ensemble for golfing) but her attempts are paper thin just like her
personality (was that mean?! Opps!) Guns are no joke and really not a laughing matter but she couldn’t contain her giggles. It was sorta embarrassing. Even the instructor was like “stop thinking about your hair” (He called it, I mean how many times can we watch her swing her hair around and pet it like a cat!) She left saying she was “bad assey” but in my opinion she is really just a “dumb
assey.” The only good thing that came outta that was she got the girls together for a self-defense class. Apparently, robberies are rampant in BH.
The self-defense class: Overall, a riot- Lisa dressed a boobs McGee and Carlton and Yolanda came literally to kick some a** (and quite literally Yolanda almost killed poor Lars…twice! Apparently “safe word” doesnot translate in Dutch.)
It was also funny to see Kim and Kyle fight it out (though the whole time I was worried about Kim’s recent nose job!! Kingsley had already broken it.. yikes) but the winner is… KIM! No doubt she is definitely more scrappy! It was another good time- no catty BS, no name calling, no gossiping just good old fashion prim donnas trying to kick butt.
We can’t all play nice though, and I am sure it will be back to
b*tches in BH next week.
