Talk about out of control! We love how many catty and crazy moments the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills manages to pack into one episode, whether it’s Yolanda Foster analyzing her daughter’s eyes or Lisa Vanderpump making a furry new friend. Here are our picks for the top five most ridiculous moments from Season 3, Episode 2: “The Higher the Heel, the Closer to God.”
5. Llamas and unicorns and teddy bears, oh my!
Only in Beverly Hills are people blase about seeing a rented llama. But we loved watching Lisa Vanderpump grab the llama and lead it through Kyle Richards’s house, much to Kyle’s dismay. (We were just glad that Lisa didn’t let the llama drink from crystal stemware, as Lisa and Ken did with Giggy last season.) And we hate to break it to Kyle, but no, there’s no such thing as a brown unicorn.
4. Yolanda gives her input, whether it’s wanted or not.
It’s great to support your daughter, but Yolanda appears to err on the side of too much support, as we hear her telling the makeup team how to do Gigi’s eyes and then see her veto certain photos. And we get that models have to be skinny, but it was borderline cringe-worthy to hear Yolanda remind her paper-thin daughter about her “diet.” Ah, the glamorous life of a model.
3. These (moon) boots are made for walkin’
We always knew that Mauricio Umansky would look good in anything, and we now can confirm that this includes high heels. Needless to say, we adored watching Paul Nassif and Mauricio learning firsthand (or is it, “first-foot”?) how painful the footwear of their better halves really can be. And yes, Mauricio, we agree that Paul totally cheated with those platform boots. (Nice try, Paul.)
2. Kim makes it to the party after all.
We can understand why Kim Richards relishes spending time with her own kids, now that she’s out of rehab. Still, we can’t help but feel that she made the right call by finding a little time for Portia’s party, too. And what Kim didn’t appear to relish were all those questions about her ex-boyfriend Ken, including Dana Wilkey bringing up their sex life. Way to stay classy, Dana.
1. Taylor does a little bit of instigating.
Given the previous blowout fights we’ve seen at, oh, approximately every single party on this show, the friction at Portia’s party was relatively mild. However, Taylor Armstrong didn’t help things by blatantly ignoring Brandi as she talked to Camille Grammer, and then frequently bringing up Brandi’s joke about sleeping with the whole town. We were starting to get nervous!
Thankfully, Kyle finally put the kibosh on the continued discussion of Brandi’s “sex” comment. Kyle might not have been on top of things when it came to cleaning up after the “unicorns,” but when it came to dialing down the drama, she was on it!
