The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” trip to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, is just about over — and these ladies are going out with a bang. After a drama-filled few days Lisa Vanderpump is on the outs with a majority of her co-stars and the fighting is far from finished.
The ladies spent their final day in the City of Gold doing what they do best — shopping. While visiting the massive mall they split into teams. Lisa V., Kyle Richards and Kathryn Edwards went one way, while Lisa Rinna, Eileen Davidson and Erika Girardi — who has remained neutral on the drama despite her ties to Yoland Foster — went another. While sifting through racks of clothes and shelves filled with expensive bags, shoes and jewlery Lisa V. opens up to rookie “RHOBH” cast member Kathryn about the fact that she’s feeling snubbed by some members of the group. She decides, however, that their outing is neither the time nor place to discuss it.
From the mall the ladies head to the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. Irked by the awkwardness of their lack of communication, Lisa V. decides it’s time to do something she never does — apologize. She pulls Eileen aside to again say sorry for making comments about her marriage which the soap opera star perceived as offensive during the “RHOBH” trip to the Hamptons in New York. Eileen is finally satisfied with the level of sincerity and decides to let it go, at least temporarily.
The drama picks back up during a dinner planned by Kyle on a boat later that evening. The ladies sit down to begin eating and are noticeably more quiet than usual. Kyle decides the best way to deal with the problem is to bring it out into the open, throwing all the ladies’ issues on the table. Lisa R. initially seems willing to forge a relationship with Lisa V., whom she’s been at odds with since it came to light that she allegedly asked the former “Days of Our Lives” star to “bring Kyle into” the Munchausen’s rumor drama. The conversation quickly goes from calm to chaotic, with Lisa V. insisting that she never said such a thing. Eileen and Kathryn both urge Kyle to step forward and say that she agrees with Lisa R. She refuses to choose a side, claiming that her relationship with Lisa V. is too valuable. The rest of the cast steps away to allow Kyle and the SUR Lounge owner to have a moment. During their private conversation Kyle urges Lisa V. to be honest about the situation and promising that nothing about their relationship will change.
Meanwhile Eileen, Kathryn, Erika and Lisa R. listen nearby. Eventually everyone returns to the table and accepts that resolution may never be reached — at least on this matter.
Back in Beverly Hills, California, Yolanda is spending time with her “#RealFriends.” The former model is shown meeting with Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards for a picnic in the park. During their meeting they discuss the drama, but largely keep the conversation light. At least until Brandi — known for her crude sense of humor — presents her friends with gift bags and t-shirts she’s had made. On Kim’s she’s had “Medicated” screen printed, a nod to her battle with sobriety. Although Brandi forgot Yolanda’s at home, she shared with her gal pal that she’d gotten “sick” printed on a shirt for her which is a direct shot at the on-going drama over her diagnosis.
“RHOBH” returns to Bravo on Tuesday, April 12 at 9 p.m. EDT for one final episode.
