Welcome back, ladies and gents. It was the second part of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 reunion, and we're thankfully just getting started. You would think that we would be warmed up after sitting through one installment of this season's RHOBH reunion. However, at the top of the second part of the reunion, Brandi Glanville and Lisa Rinna unexpectedly went at it, and I kind of liked it.
OK, when I say "like," I really mean that it was super-entertaining. Brandi and Lisa R. are two of the fiercest, no holds barred women in the RHOBH Season 5 cast. Hello? These were the two ladies that threw wine glasses this season, you know. A bout featuring these two broads is bound to be the most entertaining thing you ever did see.
And they definitely delivered. The fight actually started when Eileen Davidson attacked Brandi for everything she said about her in the press after filming on RHOBH Season 5 ended. Lisa R., who is good friends with Eileen and seems to have come to hate Brandi, of course got into it too because she just can't hold herself back. That's when things took an awfully surprising turn, with an emphasis on awful.
With Lisa R. in the mix trying to defend Eileen, Brandi fired back at Lisa R. She brought up the interview Lisa R. did with BravoTV.com published back in January where she said that she drew inspiration for her "trashy mom" character for her guest spot on CSI from Brandi. Lisa R. claimed that this was just a joke, but as much as I hate to admit it, you can't really blame Brandi for taking offense at a comment like that.
Lisa R. then said that she was offended when Brandi joked earlier this season that Lisa R. had done porn during a recording of Brandi's podcast. That seemed to more clearly be a joke, but you know, it probably wasn't the time or place.
Brandi was not having any of this, so when Lisa R.'s "joke" about Brandi's appearance was brought up, she insulted Lisa R.'s hairstyle, saying she's had it for 20 years, so she's not really one to be a judge of beauty. Lisa R. kept saying that Brandi had an insane double standard, and then she did this weird song and dance for emphasis. It didn't really help to get Lisa R.'s point across to Brandi, but it did give Bravo one more dramatic clip for its previews of the Season 5 reunion, so that's something.
Yeah, it was weird. However, it was also kind of amazing. Host Andy Cohen totally expressed my sheer enjoyment of the whole feud with a huge grin on his face and then holding his little cards with questions written on them to cover his laughing face. I expect that to be a GIF pronto. Thank you, Andy. Never change.
