The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 21 Recap: Mending Fences
Will the ladies ever be the same again?
That’s what I kept asking myself while watching The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 21, which served as the final episode of the season.
Kyle Richards has been emotional throughout much of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8, and I think it’s fair to say it could be down to the animosity amongst her family.
Kyle is currently working on a TV show with Paramount Network that is inspired by the life of her mother, Kathleen Richards.
During Tuesday’s emotional episode, Kyle opened up about the effect her decision to produce the series had on her relationship with her sister, Kathy Hilton.
Simply put, the relationship was now non-existent.
Host, Andy Cohen asked Kyle about the relationship, and she said the following in response:
“Not great. That’s why I’m looking forward to her seeing American Woman, because I think she’s going to look and say, ‘I read the situation wrong,’ and then we’ll go from there”.
“I feel it’s unfair to talk about them [her relatives] honestly,” Kyle sobbed. “I would never throw any of my family under the bus, ever.”
Elsewhere, Erika Girardi and Teddi Jo Mellencamp continued to be at odds with each other.
“The way you’ve always talked to me, it’s like you’re talking down to me,” whined Teddi who is big on people taking accountability for their actions.
“You are not this innocent fawn in the woods. Raise up or get the f*** out, come on girl,” said Erika who was not buying the innocent girl act.
Lisa Vanderpump chimed in and said that Erika was acting too harshly towards her nemesis, noting that they should not have been bickering.
“Your blog was scathing, saying that I have no character,” snapped Erika in response to Teddi comparing her to Regina George from Mean Girls.
“You are heard here, I hear you…but we had to have it out baby,” said Erika by the end of the episode.
“This felt like the right way,” smiled Teddi as their friendship was put back on track. How long will it take for the fighting to kick back off again between them?
We also got some more insight into what went down when Lisa cropped Dorit Kemsley’s face off the pictures that were used in the Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine.
“Did you cut off the [my] head because you were looking to punish me?” asked Dorit to a blindsided Lisa.
“It is kind of harsh to cut off someone’s head,” said Lisa Rinna.
“I didn’t personally edit the photographs,” said Vanderpump.
“I really didn’t care, because you weren’t happy with them [the photos], I didn’t care,” the SUR boss continued.
“How the f*** do you win with this group?” she said to Andy who was loving every minute of the feud.
As for that feud between former BFFs Vanderpump and Richards, it sure sounds like it’s still going strong.
“My grandmother meant a lot to me too, do you know her name?” said Kyle after the whole Nanny K scenario was brought up.
“Most of our conversations…90 percent of them, are about you because she has anxiety because she has hypochondria because of the family dynamic, she does,” said Vanderpump after admitting she did not know anything Kyle’s grandmother.
“I’m always calming you down…she has her knickers in a permanent twist,” Vanderpump continued.
After all of the arguing, the ladies put the past behind them, but there’s no telling when the action will kick off again.
