The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 Episode 1 kicked off another run of 90210 insanity on Bravo Tuesday, and what better place to get it going than ….
The White Party. It has been the stuff of legend as long as we can remember.
In addition to newcomers Eileen Davidson and Lisa Rinna, former cast members Adrienne Maloof, Camille Grammer and Taylor Armstrong all attended.
The stage was set for drama at Kyle Richards’ annual soiree. Who delivered?
Clearly the soap opera stars did not join the cast to make friends. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 Episode 1 proved this point in spades.
It was a series veteran who served as the foil for most of the cast, however.
First, we catch up with Yolanda Foster, who is proud of her daughters Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid, and with Brandi Glanville, who is a total mess as usual.
She’s still holding a grudge against Lisa Vanderpump after last season. Sigh.
As for the Vanderpump Rules star, she admits to separating herself from the ladies after feeling ambushed, but Kyle says she never owns up to anything.
Then we meet Lisa Rinna, at least in the context of this Bravo reality smash.
The actress and Kyle are acquaintances, and she’s married to actor Harry Hamlin, with whom she has two daughters, Delilah, 16, and Amelia, 13.
Kyle orders some Chanel stamped cake pops for the party, because KYLE.
Brandi Glanville is getting ready for the soiree and is nervous about Lisa, and the fact that former co-star Adrienne Maloof is going to be there as well.
When the shindig begins, the model arrives and makes herself uncomfortable.
Feeling ostracized, immersed and caught up in a world of drama, Brandi is even more awkward than Kim Richards, who’s feeling good of late. That says a lot.
Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin arrive, but say they must soon because they’re headed to the Mad Men series wrap party. Her calendar is just booked, ladies.
Brandi pulls Adrienne aside to try to quash the beef. Or at least attempt to.
Adrienne, surprisingly, agrees to have coffee sometime and talk this thing out. We’ll have to watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online to see how that goes.
Kyle gets all the girls together to dance. Except Brandi. Because SHUNNED.
Lisa leaves without saying goodbye to her, then tells the cameras she’s not angry at Glanville, really. She just feels sorry for her former friend at this point.
She knows she’s a good friend and it was Brandi who burned that bridge.
Is that true? Will they have it out again soon? Next week, it looks like Brandi and Adrienne have their sit-down, so expect some fireworks there big time.
