‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Recap: Lisa Vanderpump Gets Called Out on a Major Lie

Dubai drama 2.0! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills continued the overseas adventures in muumuu-wearing on the Tuesday, March 29, episode of Bravo’s hit show, traumatizing a few camels in the process. Not only did Lisa Rinna and Lisa Vanderpump get into an insane fight over the course of several fancy dinners, Rinna felt the need to tell Erika Girardi that she openly judges her sexy alter ego, Erika Jayne. Also, everyone smoked hookah and may or may not have been under the influence during this episode, so good times!

Arabian Nights

Remember when Rinna said she was “enraged” that Yolanda Foster hung out with former Housewives Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards? Well, Erika confronted her about it, simply asking Rinna if she “likes” Yolanda. Her response? “For me and Yolanda, it’s going to take some time.”

You’d think that would be the end of the conversation, but Rinna then felt the need to tell Erika that she openly judges her for her steamy music video. “When I first saw your video, I judged a book by its cover,” Rinna said. “I was like, ‘I can’t look at this.'”

Erika didn’t seem thrilled by this information, and reminded cameras that Rinna had posed for Playboy. Ahem, twice. “This bitch posed twice for Playboy, and now she’s trying to get at me in the desert?” Erika said. “Girl, really? Stop.” See photos of Lisa Rinna through the years. 

Note: This entire conversation happened sober.

Dubai Days

Need a break from the drama? Here’s a quick update on the cultural activities the ladies got up to in Dubai. Not only did they get hennaed (shout-out to Kyle Richards, who asked for “something that says, like, love or peace”), they wandered the desert, drank camel milk and bonded with a falcon named Gizmo who was just not prepared for his moment in the spotlight.

All in all, the authenticity of the trip can best be summarized by Lisa Rinna, who mused, “I feel like we’re right out of Sex and the City, with our turbans on!”

Liar, Liar

Keep stirring that pot, Eileen Davidson! The soap star encouraged Rinna to confront Vanderpump about being manipulative, and boy, did it spiral. Turns out Rinna felt scapegoated for Munchausengate, and seemed to think Vanderpump had thrown Kyle under the bus after talking about Yolanda on camera during a prior episode. Unsurprisingly, Vanderpump completely denied that such a conversation took place, but Kyle had another side to the story.

Kyle confirmed that Vanderpump tried to drag her into Rinna’s Munchausen drama before she put a stop to it, implying that the British restaurateur lied to Rinna on camera. “I said to her, ‘If you’re gonna take me down, I’ll take you down in flames,'” Kyle admitted before explaining that she has forgiven her friend.

Sounds great, but Rinna was nowhere near moving on, and was furious at Vanderpump for “lying to her face.”

Pants on Fire

Poor Lisa Vanderpump! After Rinna told everyone that her name twin had “changed history” and that she was “horrified by it,” she and Eileen ganged up on Vanderpump and accused her of being a liar. What’s more, Rinna claimed that everyone had expressed doubt over Yolanda’s illness, not just her.

“The truth is the truth,” Rinna said. “We all have talked about it. It’s been talked about. And I’m not gonna be the only one that goes down for this.”

Both Kyle and Vanderpump refused to admit that they’d said anything about Yolanda, while Vanderpump adamantly refused to admit she had lied — despite Kyle seeming to imply that she had. Unfortunately, the situation ended at a stalemate, but not before Eileen once again brought up the time Lisa Vanderpump offended her in the Hamptons. “You can’t apologize,” she fumed at a befuddled Lisa. “You can’t own your s‑‑t.… Just learn to say you’re sorry.”

All in all, a pretty intense episode, but let’s let Erika have the last word: “What the f‑‑k’s going on? Can we just, like, have a drink? Can we get on a camel?”
