RHOBH S8E4 Recap: “LIGHTS OUT”

This week’s episode opens with Rinna flying to Tokyo while Erika and Mikey are planning the pop star’s outfits for the trip. When Rinna arrives at the airport she is greeted by her daughters who are subsequently swarmed by paparazzi eager to take their photographs.

Later Vanderpump prepares a luncheon at Villa Rosa for Teddi, Dorit, and Kyle. As the rosé begins to flow so do Dorit’s gripes with Rinna. Teddi asks the ladies if Rinna is aware that most of the conversations revolve around her even when she’s not present.  Dorit replies that Rinna “knows how she acts” insinuating that Rinna should expect to be gossiped about.

* Side Note: Teddi makes a ‘Billy Madison’ reference to Vanderpump’s swans at Villa Rosa and she’s now growing on me.*

Next Vanderpump invites Dorit to model for Beverly Hills Lifestyle magazine of which she is the editor-in-chief.  Dorit arrives with and maintains a bad attitude throughout the whole shoot. She complains incessantly about the make-up artist provided, the lack of notice she was given for the shoot, and each of the photographs taken.  Vanderpump handles Dorit’s lack of professionalism with grace and explains that Dorit should be honored for the opportunity since the magazine has featured major actresses before (take a seat, Dorit).

Meanwhile in Tokyo, Erika stuns Rinna by donning a pink wing, vintage Gucci thigh-high boots and a vintage McQueen black dress.  The gal pals then visit a geisha house where they struggle through a feast of traditional Japanese sushi and afterwards are treated to a geisha performance.

Later Kyle hosts a dinner party and the power goes out moments before the guests arrive. Dorit and her incessant complaining remark that drinking is the only way she’ll make it through Kyle’s party without electricity.  Dorit sticks true to her word and takes multiple shots of tequila and becomes belligerent. She makes a flurry of drunken remarks prompting Teddi to call her frightening (I officially stan Teddi now). Despite being told to be quiet by both PigK and Mauricio, Dorit continues to flap her gums and calls Camille a stupid c**t. The housewives are shocked but Camille handles the verbal assault with elegance and fluffs the comment off. However, as the episode ends Camille reveals that she is officially over Dorit and that she doesn’t want to be associated with a “crazed drunken woman.”

Next time on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Erika reveals her husband was involved in a car accident, Dorit and Teddi’s relationship splinters further, and the ladies discuss a lawsuit involving Vanderpump.  Tune in next Tuesday at 9 p.m. EST for an all-new episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
