The last episode begins where it left off last week in a room in NYC where Kelsey and Camille are pouring champagne and toasting. Camille smiles at Kelsey and toasts to 13 years of marriage. Cheers all around from DD, “Handsome Nick” and wife Tricia who are there in support. They take off for the Tonys and the shot of Camille tugging on the train of her red dress as she exits the limo is forever branded in our brain. Knowing how Kelsey wanted out of the marriage made it uncomfortable for her she says, but she smiled her way through it.
Kyle Richards visits her psychic Clairvoyant/Medium “Rebecca” who’s been her psychic for two years. She brings along her mom’s ashes and a lock of her mother’s hair. The psychic feels her mother’s presence. There is conflict with a female.. does Kyle feel a bit betrayed? Kyle says when she’s worried about Kim or they have a fight, she feels the presence of her mother and so she knew this psychic was onto something. Lisa Vanderpump invites Taylor to Villa Blanca for a glass of house rose and a sit down. She wants to clear up the NY episode with Camille as “it keeps rearing its ugly head.” Lisa advises Taylor to stay out of the relationship between Kyle and Kim, nothing needs to be stirred up she says and to try and keep out of it. Taylor insists she’s not “in it” but also admits that she has “a problem” with Kim and so Lisa advises Taylor to sort it out with her, put it to bed. It’s a high-risk proposition, sorting things out with Kim, says Taylor.
Lisa meets with her friend, designer Alan Del Rosario who comes by with some dresses they’ve designed together so that Lisa can find something to wear for Taylor’s birthday party. On her website Lisa says that she’s designed most of her clothes in conjunction with friends Christina Makowsky and Alan Del Rosario. Lisa’s bringing Cedric to Taylor’s party, but things will be changing soon. Cedric’s become a little too comfortable in her home. Kim goes to Christophe for a makeup lesson. She wants to “spice up her game” and look really good for Taylor’s party. It’s important to her. Kim explains that Kyle probably learned how to do her makeup because she got to go to school and had friends, something Kim didn’t get to do because she was a child actress, a Disney girl, and was always working. Someone else always did Kim’s hair and makeup for her. Taylor finally decides to listen to the doctors and give Kennedy’s birthday present, Snowball, to a friend.
Ken, Lisa and 37-year-old Cedric, sit down by the pool and have a chat. Ken tells Cedric that it’s about time he move on, that having him around changes the dynamic of their home, it’s time for Lisa and Ken to be alone already. Even if he were one of their own kids, it would be odd of he were living there at this age. “You’re going to miss me. You’ll be calling me, begging me to come back,” says Cedric. “It’s not natural, really, for you to be living with us,” says Lisa. “The party’s come to an end,” says Ken. “A big woofeee to all of you and thank you for worshipping me.” says Giggy in his Bravo Blog
We see Taylor and Russell leave for Taylor’s big birthday bash and then we see Camille in Malibu, who won’t be going because she’s in seclusion and sick and sad. Woman to woman, Camille and DD, both with the AC 360 Perma-Gaze, talk about what’s happened to Camille and Kelsey’s marriage. How could this happen to Camille and who is this woman? Doesn’t she know she’s breaking up a family? Camille recounts the horror of arriving at Kelsey Grammer’s NYC apartment only to find that the doorman doesn’t recognize her as Kelsey’s wife and she has to pull out her ID. Somebody’s in the apartment as “Mrs. Grammer” and it’s not her. She’s devastated. “What are you gonna do?” asks DD.
Taylor greets the guests who arrive to her party: Adrienne and Paul; Adrienne’s PR agent, Howard; Lisa and Ken; Kyle, Mauricio and Farrah; Kim’s best friend, Melody; Estrella, Mauricio’s mother. Kyle’s embarrassed because Kim’s always “late” for things.. It’s not her fault, Kim’s not her child. ack in Malibu we see Camille again talking about feeling tortured and crying and saying that Kelsey held her down in their marriage and kept her in a cage. It was difficult. In the end, she cried and begged and asked him to reconsider, but had to file for divorce. He was already gone, what else could she do?
Back at the party, Kim’s arrived. She grabs a drink and mingles. Kyle whispers that Kim’s acting drunk. Alcohol and her sister do not mix well. Russell makes a speech and thanks everyone for coming to Taylor’s 30th (39th) birthday. Lisa comments about the fact that she feels absolutely no connection to Russell at all. Nothing. But he’s Taylor’s husband, not hers. At the party, again, Lisa tells Taylor that she should be honest with herself. Maybe Taylor loves the Beverly Hills lifestyle more than being truly happy. Taylor walks over to Kim and asks to speak with her. She tells her how Lisa confronted her and asked how she all of the sudden got involved in this whole thing between Camille and Kyle and how she blames Kim for “winding her up” in LAX. This is all really Kim’s fault. She says she has to get this off of her chest because she had nothing to do with anything and actually Kim could have stood up for her sister, but she didn’t and Taylor should not have been dragged into any of it.
Kim accuses Taylor and everyone of stirring the pot a little, which is not how Taylor remembers any of it. She recalls Kyle needing Kim and Kim not being there for her. That’s how Kyle sees it, too. Just ask her, says Taylor and she brags of having a great relationship with Kyle. Let’s ask your sister how she feels. Then Kyle walks up and gets involved. It’s Taylor’s birthday and she spends it stirring things up between a drunk Kim and an irritated Kyle. In Kyle’s Bravo Blog this week she writes: That night never should have happened. It was incredibly difficult to go through in the first place and it’s even more difficult to watch and relive it. Throughout the season I have come across as angry toward my sister. At times, it seemed unwarranted. I know that. I know how bad it looked. The truth is, I was angry. There were problems brewing between my sister and me off camera. I’m not good at hiding my feelings as well as others, so I brought my feelings in front of the cameras. Viewers only know what they see, and sometimes, they saw me reacting with force and emotion that didn’t seem to make sense.
Adrienne asks why Kim didn’t speak up at the table in NYC and defend her sister and again Kim states that she doesn’t like confrontation and conflict and she thinks that some people in the group, stir the s#hit. Kim tells Kyle that she’s been a great sister to her and Kyle isn’t being great to her right now. Kyle yells back at Kim, telling her that she’s the one who’s been there for her in this relationship. Kim had the chance to stand up for her in NYC and she chose not to. Kim says she does not like conflict and that she’s had enough bad things happen in her life that she just “doesn’t go there.” When Kim looked around and saw that the whole party was watching her, she started crying and left.
Kyle cries to Adrienne and tells her how much resentment she has toward Kim, how much she’s been through with her, people have no idea. Adrienne tells her that all families have this. Kyle’s mother left her dealing with all of the stress of Kim and dealing with Kim’s life and she can’t take it. Kyle says she appreciates Adrienne’s advice, but no one understands the complexity of Kim and Kyle’s relationship. Feeling attacked by the group of women arguing with her, Kim leaves the party. Kyle realizes this and has her manager phone downstairs and tell them not to let Kim leave. Martin shows up to check on Kim, who’s now sitting in the limo and she tells him her sad tale. Then Adrienne shows up to check on Kim. She tries to talk things out with her. Now Kyle comes down to the limo, but Kim doesn’t want her near. Kyle and Kim begin fighting. Kyle tells Kim that once again here they are with Kim and her antics, Kim causing problems and drama and a big scene at Taylor’s party. We hear Kim say that she always took care of her family. She bought Kyle her first car and and a home. Kim tells Kyle she’s embarrassed of the way she’s behaving, Kyle says she’s the one who’s embarrassed here and it just gets bad and worse. The worst. Watch the whole thing here. Kyle screams at Kim that she’s an alcoholic. And, it’s horrible. Kyle tells her that she’s on her own now and gets out of the car. We leave seeing Kim crying alone in the back of the limo.
At the end we read:
– Kyle and Kim went weeks without talking… their kids are trying to broker a truce between them.
– As Cedric was moving out, he and Lisa had an explosive argument. They haven’t spoken since.
– Snowball is happy in his new home, but Taylor continues to struggle in her current one.
– Adrienne and Paul are still the Bickersons
– Kim’s family checked her into rehab and a week later she checked herself out. She is taking her life one day at a time.
– And Camille Grammer is living in Malibu and fighting for the custody of her children, while Kelsey Grammer is in NY engaged to a 29-year-old flight attendant.
