Arabian nights! The ladies hit Dubai during the Tuesday, March 22, episode of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and it was basically a sea of caftans and drama. Not only did Lisa Rinna open up about her somewhat inexplicable issues with Yolanda Foster, Kyle Richards got a chance to apologize for engaging in Munchausen Gate. Meanwhile, back in Los Angeles, Brandi Glanville wandered on set and had some (ahem) thoughts on Rinna. Namely, that she’s a wig-wearing “motherf–ker” whose brain has been addled by glue. More on that good time below.
Also, shout-out to Yolanda, who had this to say about her daughter Bella Hadid‘s boyfriend, The Weeknd: “I’m not so sure about the lyrics.”
Kyle Has a Change of Heart
Welcome to Team Yolanda, Kyle! The star was visibly touched while listening to Gigi Hadid present her mother with an award at the Global Lyme Alliance gala, and was inspired to change her mind about Yolanda’s condition after Gigi said that people “shame” her.
“I always felt, like, dirty and weird even hearing Lisa Rinna use the world ‘Munchausen,’ and being in that setting with her, and not being more defensive,” Kyle told cameras. “And being here tonight, and listening to what these people are saying, I feel bad about that. It’s really hard because a part of me feels guilty for talking about her children. It’s really upsetting.”
Kyle ended up apologizing to Yolanda at the gala, and it clearly meant a lot to the former model. “When it hit her emotions, I knew,” she said while crying. “That’s all I wanted was for them to understand.”
Yolanda Gets Real About Stress in Her Marriage
Trouble in paradise? Not yet! Yolanda thanked her husband, David Foster, while accepting her Global Lyme Alliance award, saying, “Thank you to my courageous husband for making actions speak louder than words, and standing by me during this painful and very unromantic journey.”
She later told Brandi that their relationship has been a “challenge,” and that “it’s hard on him not having a wife.”
Brandi’s two cents? “She used to be David’s everything,” Brandi said. “She used to take care of David, she did everything for him.” The man himself seemed in relatively good spirits throughout this episode, so it’s still unclear what went wrong in the couple’s marriage.
However, there’s no denying that Yolanda has changed since the early days of RHOBH — even physically. “I haven’t worn any makeup in eleven months,” she said. “You know, I haven’t done any Botox or anything now for three years. It’s funny to see how your face changes.”
Welcome to Dubai!
So many muumuus, so little time! The Housewives took a nearly 24-hour flight to Dubai, where they immediately changed into multicolored drapery and got into a huge argument — but not before having several awkward conversations about culture in the Middle East. Highlights included Lisa Rinna asking Harry Hamlin if she should “cover up,” and him responding, “You mean, Muslim-wise?” Good, weird times.
But back to the drama: after congratulating each other on #MuumuuGoals, the ladies started talking about — what else? — Yolanda. “I’ve never doubted that she’s sick,” Rinna said despite literally everyone side-eying her. “I question sometimes not her sickness — how she uses it, how she displays it and when she chooses to show up and when she doesn’t.”
All of Rinna’s friends seemed uncomfortable with her comments, but Erika Girardi went on the defense, saying, “I think she would like to be here with us tonight. Why would you rather be at home instead of being here? Look at where we are — this is a gorgeous place, Lisa. Who doesn’t want to see her two daughters absolutely dominate Fashion Week in New York and Paris? Who wants to stay in a bathrobe? I don’t think that’s fair to say about her.”
Brandi Burns Lisa
Brandi is back and sassier than ever! The former Housewife stopped by to complain about Lisa Rinna, and had a lot of opinions about her hair. “I think that wig glue is going to her brain, and she needs to check herself,” she said. “It’s one wig in one style. No, I’m not lying. She wears wigs.”
As if that’s not a big enough burn, Brandi wrote Rinna an imaginary letter: “Dear Lisa Rinna, get a f–king life, eat some food and stop talking about my friends. You have nothing else going on in your life. Hashtag straight jacket; hashtag real friends; motherf–ker, get some help.”
Cool, cool, totally normal, nothing to see here.
