Who knew one little bunny could cause so much drama on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Part three of the reunion picked up right where we left off last week, with Kim Richards going to find Lisa Rinna backstage to explain why she was superstitious about giving Lisa’s gift to her grandson. Just as Kim approached Rinna and asked to talk, Rinna was not ready for it.
“No!” Rinna snapped. “That was the most humiliating thing that’s ever happened to me and I will not accept this. I’m sorry, for you to do that, you are a sick woman. Do you feel good about getting back at me?” Rinna asked. Kim explained that she was very superstitious and didn’t want the bunny in her house. “You’re a victim! You’ll always be a victim!” Rinna shouted at Kim.
Meanwhile, back on stage Andy was discussing how he’d really like to have the bunny for his WWHL Clubhouse. As Rinna and Kim took their seats, Rinna told Kim she thought she was a “really sick woman” and that Kim only went after her because she was her “meal ticket.”
Kyle Richards jumped in to defend her sister. “Lisa, that’s a really stupid thing to say and that could not be farther from the truth.” Kyle also got mad at Rinna separately over the fact that Rinna always wanted Kyle to answer for Kim’s actions. “Our mother is not here anymore but that does not make me her mother!” Kyle said.
Dorit Kemsley then told Rinna she had “a very big mouth” and Rinna replied by telling Dorit to “shut up.”
Next up was Eden Sassoon who had put herself in the hot seat by involving herself with Kim’s sobriety this season. When asked if she had done this to create a storyline for herself, Eden replied, “That is such bullsh*t.” She did admit that she “projected” her own past onto Kyle.
Footage was shown of Rinna saying Kim was close to death, as well as footage showing Rinna saying she never remembered saying that, and Dorit was the first to jump in and have something to say about Lisa. “You crucify anyone for not remembering anything!” she shouted. Rinna shrugged and told Dorit she didn’t need to talk to her anymore. Andy then asked Erika Girardi if she believed Rinna when she claimed to not remember saying Kim was close to death and Erika said she didn’t know and didn’t really care. That’s when Eileen Davidson jumped to Rinna’s defense as usual. She said, “What [Rinna] did was absolutely wrong, messed-up wrong — but the night got weird because of you [Kim].”
“It’s the soap twins!” Kim quipped, to which Eileen added: “Just because you’re the loudest and most obnoxious does not mean you’re right.” She then accused Kim of “inserting” herself into a conversation that had been between Rinna, Dorit and herself. Kim denied this accusation.
As for who brought up #xanaxgate, Dorit reiterated that it was Eden who had brought up Rinna’s erratic behavior and clarified that she had never personally said Rinna had a drug problem. Rinna screamed, “You make me crazy!” and insisted she had never put Xanax in a smoothie.
Andy asked Dorit if people had been doing cocaine at her dinner party, as Rinna had asked during their ill-fated dinner in Hong Kong. “Of course not!” Dorit insisted.
Switching subjects, Andy asked Lisa Vanderpump if her son Max is still on the hunt for his biological parents. “We found her,” Vanderpump said, as she became very emotional. “I’m OK with it. I don’t know why I’m so tearful. I think he should, and he said to me the most unbelievable thing. He said, ‘I want to thank her.’ A lot of people would have resentment if they’d been put up for adoption.” She did admit that she was worried that Max would be “disappointed” that the reality of meeting his birth mother wouldn’t live up to the dream, but insisted that Max was old enough now that she didn’t feel threatened.
Finally, the ladies went around the room and shared what they regretted most about this season. Dorit said she regretted giving Erika the underwear. “Knowing now how that affected her and how it embarrassed her,” Dorit insisted she had a new perspective on how she’d handled their feud. Eileen basically said she regretted assuming that people always wanted to solve their issues with each other and was going to rethink her approach instead of inserting herself into fights in the future. Vanderpump admitted there was “something about” Rinna that she loved, but also said that she “can be a real asshole.”
The reunion ended with Rinna giving Andy the bunny. “There’s good energy now,” Eileen declared.
