‘RHOBH’ RECAP: Annemarie Wiley PRAISES Herself for Aiding Crystal During Her Medical Crisis!
Welcome to a drama-filled episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The ladies are in Spain pulled over on the side of the road, due to Crystal Minkoff’s medical emergency.
Crystal begins to cry as the ladies rally around her, as nurse Annamarie checks her out. However, Annemarie doesn’t miss the opportunity throw shade at Crystal while she’s going through this difficult time.
“This is not just like a ‘lay down and drink some ginger ale and walk it off’ kind of situation,” Annemarie told the cameras.
“But like, given Crystal repeatedly insulting and degrading my profession, the irony of what is happening right now is literally shocking,” “She added,” alluding to their ongoing dispute regarding allegations that Annemarie had purportedly presented herself as a doctor rather than a nurse.
Crystal reclined in the sprinter van, patiently awaiting the arrival of medical professionals, while Annemarie asserted, “I don’t want her to get up and get a hypertensive crisis or something and then stroke out … not that that would ever happen!”
Upon the arrival of the ambulance, Crystal conveyed her blood pressure reading to Annemarie, stating, “177 over 108,” who replied, “Yup, there you go.” As paramedics arrive, they take Crystal’s blood pressure and mama’s pressure is 177/108 so they take Crystal to the hospital immediately.
The women bid farewell to Crystal as she heads to the ER. Dorit Kemsley gives Crystal a kiss goodbye, while the rest of the group proceeds to visit a nearby church.
