The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Recap: “The Kids Are Alright” [Episode 18]

We continue on this cobblestone paved nightmare of a vacation in San Juan, Puerto Rico. All the ladies meet in the morning over freshly poured gossip, and immediately ensues bashing Lisa and Ken for leaving the dinner.  The blitz starts with Yolanda reporting Ken and Lisa got in a cab, went to the airport, and went home.  The table is still in silence for a few seconds and the faces they all have say everything you need to know.  Kim knows she should apologize to Ken for her outburst at the dinner.  Then she got over that, and really doesn’t want to, beause you all know usually people in recovery in an active 12-step, make amends and apologize when there are at fault.  She shows no remorse for taking it too far.  This table turns into a group of grown adult women into “Mean Ladies of Beverly Hills.”


Clearly Joyce doesn’t have the history with Lisa the other women do. Joyce seems disappointed that Lisa didn’t let her know they were leaving.  Joyce, as the host, maybe should have checked with Lisa and Ken, after that horrible dinner. Why didn’t one of these women say, “Ummm, Brandi why did you have the tabloid magazine at your house anyway,”  or how about, “Didn’t you bring up the cheating rumor at Calton’s house?”

The ladies minus Lisa are skipping the streets, giggling, and having a grand óle time.  The mood definitely changed as the girls have the best vacation now that Lisa has been run off.  In classy form, celebrating with smiles as if Brandi is best friends with all of them.

Next, Calrton comes over to Lisa’s house to give her a chance to vent. Lisa expresses she feels ambushed, and she refuse to stay in Puerto Rico with negative, aggressive, bullshit.  Lisa feels each one of them, with their own little game plan, systematically coming after her for a list of little things to attack her on the trip.  Lisa breaks down in tears, saying she has always defended Brandi.  Lisa feels that Brandi prides herself on being brutally honest, when deep down Lisa feels Brandi is more brutal than honest.


After all the drama, we see Kim packing and preparing her daughter for the trip to college.  It was sweet to see both her parents taking her, laughing with her, and of course seeing how small most dorm rooms are.  Kim might have brought so much that Kimberly will have a hard time getting into her room.  In dazzling New York, we watch Yolanda prepare and unpack her daughters lavish, stunning, spacious apartment.  Yolanda and Kim are both excited to see their children soar into this next stage of life.  Many tears fall, as these two mothers complete an 18 year long journey.  Sending your child off to college is not only a blessing, but a wonderful exciting moment for these two beautiful young women.

Yolanda Foster

At the end of this episode, we see Ken and Lisa leaving for the dreaded party we will see next week,  in the finale.  Just from the body language alone we see Ken is frazzled and irritated.  Lisa knows he doesn’t want to go, and Ken mentions after that last time with HER friends.  Lisa’s responds “they are your friends too.”  Ken slays back, “they were.” Ken set the line, and doesn’t want “friends” to speak to his wife that way.

Will these ladies collide at the party and ever speak again?  Will Brandi ever separate her friendships with an employee of her friend?  Will Lisa finally say how hurt she is? Will Ken see to the Mayor throwing them out of the party?

To get these answers and more tune into Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the Season Finale!

    I didn’t even watch the show last night. I’m done with it. I used to enjoy watching how the wealthy spend their time and money, but this show has become tedious. I watch to escape from my own problems – not to see women twirling on poles, gag masks, hear racial comments, and see juvenile behavior. It’s become a bunch of people trying their best to hurt one another and/or endorse their products. They give me a headache!

    I’m ready for some Jeff Lewis time! 🙂

      Hi Nan!!!! OMG so happy to see you 🙂

      Happy New Year and Welcome!

      • nan/4

        Hi Dr. Seuss!!! Thanks for the warm welcome. 🙂 OMG, I’ve missed you and I’m thrilled that Izzy told me you were here. All my best to you as well. I think I’m going to love it here! Yahooo! lol 😉

        • Dr Seuss

          Same here honey!!!! OMG!!! I’ve missed you so much. It’s like a family reunion on this site. Now, we’re starting to feel like home again. Love ya!

          • nan/4

            Right back at ya’! :-)!!!

    • Birdie11

      Welcome Nan!! 🙂

      • nan/4

        Birdie! How are you doing, my friend? Boy, have I ever missed you and I’m THRILLED to see you again. I’m doing a happy dance! lol

        Be well sweetheart! 😉

        • Birdie11

          Me too! I love that all my faves are making it over here! *clicking heels* You take care too! :-))

  • ZammyB

    I LOVES me some Ken! He is such a great husband!

    • Dr Seuss

      Agreed!! He loves his wife deeply. It beautiful to watch.

  • Birdie11

    I almost choked when Yo said she’s doing what millions of other mothers are doing…LOL…no KIM is. Not many mothers can afford such a cushy start ( with bouquets of fresh flowers!) for their college freshman girls. I also noticed how this place seemed like Yo’s dream…and Gigi really just wants to go to school. This sure seems like a case of Yo living thru Gigi, and it got a bit puke provoking.

    • Dr Seuss

      Thank you!! That apartment was amazing but not practical, in the least. Not a good way to teach a young adult about responsibilities.

      • Birdie11

        I know…and does Gigi have an aversion to color?? I doubt that the operating room decor made her too excited. I am over Yo’s fridge too…that thing is the picture of OCD! The perfect pyramids of peppers and perfect stacks of carrots…puh-leeze! #mentalcase

  • samantha

    The scenes are never that interesting without Lisa, jmo.

    • Birdie11

      The PR frolicking scenes were definitely a snooze…actually the whole episode was.

    • Dr Seuss

      Definitely a snooze-fest. The other ladies are just not that interesting.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Why watch?. This whole premise is ridiculous and obviously producer driven.

    • Dr Seuss

      In agree West. It’s painful to watch this show.

    I watched the preview for next week’s episode with Yolanda literally and physically sticking her nose up in the air and practically spitting in Ken’s face while giving him quite the dressing down, saying her husband would never have anything to do with the likes of him and Brandi chiming in that David actually works. Ken moves his arm and Yolanda slaps it away while raising her voice saying something to the effect “Don’t touch me!” I was gobsmacked! Yolanda Foster is so delusionally full of herself with a self-appointed superiority complex. After all, she is the trophy wife of the great David Foster [insert sarcasm].

    Both she and Brandi have told viewers not to watch the show if they don’t like what they are seeing. I am sure the Bravo honchos love it when their employees tell viewers not to tune in.

    Oh, and as far as this week’s episode, I really did enjoy the comparison between Gigi and Kimberly’s experiences beginning their new lives in college. While I know Mohammed and Yolanda have the means for that spacious apartment, it is not necessarily in Gigi’s best interests. Kimberly’s parents are teaching her a very valuable life lesson; that not all children come from privilege and exposing her to peers who are from all walks of life; hopefully, fostering an even greater sense of appreciation rather than self-entitlement.

    • Birdie11

      Once again, Lemonyo taking over as the conversation police…when it has NOTHING to do with her…just because she is the perfection that is Yolanda Foster. GAG!!! Delusional is right.

  • HarmonyMcCl

    The real question is Brandi had the magazines. Brandi brought it up. When the cheating scandal came out Lisa said just ignore those rumors. Brandi didnt. Just like giving her parents the car, everything has a motive.

  • HarmonyMcCl

    If you watch the earlier episodes, a lot of her story is flat out not true. Remember a catered affair to remember episode? When i watched it all became clear

    “Its not my fault, Lisa made me drink, I could feel her telling me to not stop, my butt is cold”
