What started out as a slow and boring reunion ended with the waving of phone records and a walk off! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills women sat down for the exhausting and emotional rehashing of the season. Top on Andy Cohen’s note cards: divorce and disease.
The conversation started out innocent enough with Andy questioning Yolanda Hadid about the end of her marriage to David Foster. "It didn’t just happen overnight … being chronically ill for that long takes the life out of you but also of your caretaker," she explained.
She continued, “David didn’t change. I’m the one that changed.” Lisa Vanderpump then pumped her for more information about the split. The Brit asked if she was blindsided and Yolanda answered honestly.
“I didn’t think that was the end of the road,” she said of their November 2nd “discussion.” She admitted that she wished they had lasted until she was well enough to deal with the issues in their marriage. Yolanda even confessed she and David would probably still be together now if she hadn’t gotten sick!
She also revealed she wouldn’t get married again because her “laser beam” focus is on getting fully healed and watching her top model daughters walk the runways across the world.
But finally, there was a moment of excitement at the end — it was the stuff reunions are remembered for!
When Andy brought up Lyme disease Kyle Richards was quick to defend herself. She said, “We never questioned whether she had Lyme disease or not. We were wondering also what was contributing to it.”
Then, Rinna dropped the bombshell we were all waiting for. She claimed that when Yolanda showed up to her birthday party sans makeup, her husband Harry Hamlin stood up for Yo while Ken Todd (LVP’s hubby) trashed her and Lisa said, “There goes our f*cking story line.”
Rinna yelled across the couch, “You encouraged me to say Munchausen’s!” She revealed LVP called her numerous times to “manipulate” her into having the conversation with Yolanda and become the scapegoat.
The former soap star then pulled out her phone records (hidden in her purse behind the pillows on the couch) to prove LVP called her ten times! “Ten f*cking phone calls!” she repeated as she stood up and waved the papers around! All the while, Yo was fighting back tears and looked shocked and disgusted over the comments.
In the heightened moment, she jumped off the couch and ran into Andy’s dressing room with bestie Erika Girardi on her heels for moral support. That’s how you start a reunion!
