'Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills' Recap: Joyce Picks A Fight With Lisa, Brandi And Carlton Bond
What began as a fun outing to Cirque School for some aerial fitness turned into a day of confrontations when Brandi Glanville took offense after hearing a rumor that Kyle Richards called her a bully on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Brandi And Carlton Shop For Lingerie
First, the episode began with Brandi and Carlton Gebbia bonding while shopping at Trash, a lingerie shop. The two women try on different outfits for each other, and flirt up a storm. When Brandi mentions her desire to find a man, Carlton mentions doing a spell to help make her wish come true. She has to write her specific wish – dream features and all – and they can bury it with a crystal on a night of the full moon. Brandi is enthusiastic – it’s a date! (Brandi and Carlton might have some sort of scandalous affair ahead of them. Brandi said it best: “I’m not, not a lesbian.”)
Brandi Vs. Kyle
Kim Richards invited the girls to Cirque School for some basic lessons in aerial acrobatics, but things turned sour quickly. Upon arriving, Brandi announced to Kim that she would not be talking to Kyle because a paparazzo had harassed her and asked her to respond to Kyle’s allegations that she is a bully. Kim tried to convince Brandi to let it go for now – the paparazzi can’t be trusted and Kim just wants everyone to have a day of fun and peace.
Brandi and Kyle came to blows at lunch after the aerial class, and Kyle denied ever calling Brandi a bully. When Lisa Vanderpump urged her to Tweet out a statement to set the record straight – something Brandi said would be a nice gesture – Kyle refused. Kyle, of course, is still in a bitter war with the media for printing rumors that her husband Mauricio is cheating on her.
Joyce Picks A Fight With Lisa
Next up, Lisa and newbie Joyce Giraud had a little tiff stemming from an incident that occurred at Carlton’s lunch from last week’s episode. According to Joyce, she, Yolanda Foster and Brandi were having fun fixing each other’s hair, and when Joyce went to move a hair out of Lisa’s face, Lisa brushed her off harshly, which caused Joyce to feel uncomfortable. According to Joyce, both Brandi and Yolanda had spoken to her about it privately and she felt that she would rather address it head on with Lisa than talk about it behind her back. Lisa, however, was not having it. She apologized, sort of, but really seemed to have no idea what she was talking about. With neither Joyce nor Lisa willing to forgive and forget, the back and forth escalated, culminating in Joyce spilling that Brandi had told her that Lisa could dish it out but can’t take it when it comes to constructive criticism. Looks like Joyce just lost an ally in Brandi.
Meanwhile, Yolanda is getting nervous about her daughter Gigi going away to college and Lisa’s husband surprises her with a new puppy.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
