Slap Heard 'Round the World

Wow. Just wow.

There’s only horrible things to say about this week’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly HillsAren’t these ladies supposed to be the uber-chic, insanely wealthy, charity going ladies who represent the 90210? Well, they sure aren’t acting like it!

We’re still in Amsterdam, which seems like a lovely city that I hope to visit one day, and the ladies all meet up for a day on the town! The group splits in 2: Team Lisa, Kimdi (how do we feel about that combo of Kim and Brandi’s names?) go shopping and Team KyYo visit museums. I have to say, shopping sounds more fun.

It’s all a little weird…a little off…a little too much. Everyone acts like nothing is wrong. I guess I get it because you’re on vacation and you want to salvage as much nice time as you can. But still.

The big drama of the evening comes on a private dinner boat tour of canals. What is it with having a fight at dinner? Whether it’s at a restaurant, on a boat or at someone’s home (remember the Dinner from Hell episode in season 1), what is it with these ladies having HUGE FIGHTS at dinner?! Maybe they’re angry because they don’t eat much dinner and have all the time in the world to yell at each other since they aren’t putting food in their mouths.

Here’s a “before” photo. Oh so nice!

Here’s the play by play in case you missed it:

Everyone arrives on the boat. Yo slips up and asks Kim if she grabbed a glass of champagne. #limedisease

Everyone acts like there wasn’t a huge fight 1 day ago where Lips tried threw a glass of wine at Kim.

Kyle gets uncomfortable with the “phoniness” and leaves. Yo and Vanderpump follow.

Everyone comes back to the table and Brandi starts playfully calling people out on the rumors around town.

Eileen doesn’t like being called a homewrecker.

Yolanda leaves to eat dinner. <— someone is eating? And it’s Yo?

Everyone joins the table.

Brandi wants to go around the table and give a compliment to each girl.

It goes smoothly but oddly.

It’s Brandi’s turn and she runs to the bathroom crying. Girl got mad issues!

Tears are dried, everyone jokes about the love boat.

Brandi tries to kiss Vanderpump in a soap opera way. <—- seriously, is she a lezzie? Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Lisa tells her to stop it and that she’ll smack Brandi.

Brandi smacks Vanderpump across the face.

You read that right, Lisa Vanderpump gets slapped in the face by Brandi Glanville. (the image above isn’t a video, but it is if you click on the source link!)

Here are my 2 cents on the slap heard ’round the world:

1. You should NEVER hit someone else, especially someone as fabulous as Lisa Vanderpump. I mean, look at that hat. Only fabulous people can get away with wearing a hat like that.

2. Vanderpump blew it a little out of proportion.

Let me explain:

Brandi and Vanderpump were joking just before this happened, exactly like old times. Vanderpump jokingly said, “Stop. I’ll smack you,” as Brandi tried to kiss her. So, Brandi in her infinite wisdom, decided to actually slap Vanderpump! While I absolutely do not believe you should ever hit someone else (see my 1 cent comment), I don’t think Brandi meant anything malice by it. I definitely think she CRAY CRAY and out of control. But for Lisa to go out the next day and talk to Kyle about it in a way that made it seem worse than it really was is also wrong. Lisa told Brandi it wasn’t okay and that she crossed the line. Brandi apologized. You should probably move on and just chop it up to Brandi being drunk. Don’t most people?

Well, until next week. The episode does look phenomenal actually!!

Did you watch this episode? What did you think?
