Last week the KAT 3 left Lisa deeply wounded but with a much clearer understanding of how these women are wired. I watched tonight with no higher expectations from them. Of course, they lived up to exactly what we thought they would be, only now they have Brandi in their sights.
A clip was shown of Brandi being introduced to this crew at Kyle’s charity fundraiser. Dr. Paul, in a talking head interview, summed it up perfectly – in Beverly Hills, there’s always some newer, prettier thing coming along – something that will bump up against hostility and jealousy. By the way, if Adrienne is truly as annoyed and frustrated with her husband as she appears to be, she might want to remember those words. Adrienne is a woman who doesn’t realize all that she has, and who spends her leisure time very unwisely.
The KAT 3 take their best shots at Brandi, but, frankly, their best will never be good enough. Brandi should do infomercials because she sliced and diced right though the trio. Add in Lisa as her wingman and the others are toast. They throw everything at her, with Andy chiming in like the giddy teen that he is. I had to hand it to Lisa who, while explaining that she had apologized to Brandi for prejudging her, also managed to take a swipe at Kyle. She said that she was merely having Kyle’s back and trusting her opinion of Brandi, because that’s what friends do – trust and have each other’s backs.
There is no bottom to the form of the insults and criticisms slung by the KAT 3, mostly directed at Brandi and Lisa. Giggy shouldn’t drink out of crystal. Giggy sends mean tweets and makes fun of Taylor’s lips – this is one busy dog. This is also what grasping at straws looks like. Taylor must have been watching reruns of the Real Housewives of New York Reunion and particularly Countess Luann. When Brandi made the point that the Giggy tweets said some of the very same things that Taylor had said about herself, Taylor’s response was “I’m not talking to you”. There you go, Oklahoma.
I don’t need to give you each wretched detail about this debacle. You have already seen it for yourself, or know of others who do excellent recaps. There were a few things that were revealed that spoke volumes about all of these women. I think it was important that Brandi let all of us know that no one should have a conversation with Adrienne without legal representation and a notary public. Taylor let us have just a little glimpse into how her legal defense will proceed – denial and coercion. Russell left a briefcase near his body containing files with information about ten bank accounts and business dealings in Rio de Janeiro. There are also some computer memory cards which Taylor says she is afraid to look at. I’m afraid that she won’t be able to avoid those for very long.
Taylor is clearly enjoying her new status as queen of the talk show circuit and spokesperson for both domestic violence and suicide survivors. She is a dark and deviate woman. She wants us to believes that she has Kyle and Adrienne for support and friendship. She wants them to believe this, too. She may have already managed to trap Adrienne in her web with whatever information has been shared between them. Kyle is simply a dupe. I am convinced that when she made her remarks about Lisa while talking to Taylor, she had no idea what she was saying or even what it meant. She accused Lisa of being a predator - something that no one would say about anyone without serious cause, never mind someone you call friend. Adrienne may already know how conniving Taylor can be and may already be paying the price for that. Kyle isn’t quick enough to realize that she is just another mark and the only predator at the Reunion is sitting right beside her, smiling and plotting her next move. I have a funny feeling that the three other women are not quite as gullible or foolish.
I know I didn’t mention Camille, but I didn’t think that she’d mind.
Can you believe that we have to go through this again next week?
