The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills 1.08 ” Charity Cases” Review

Well, sorry for the late review. Blame DirecTV?

Anyway, last week’s installment of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was pretty much a set up episode for this week’s upcoming dinner battle with drama as its main course.


As a super volunteer for the 1736 Family Crisis Center, Taylor was asked to share her own personal experiences with domestic violence growing up at a charity event for the center. While that is a lot of drama to choke up in front of a lot of strangers, she managed to do it with gusto and a few tears along the way. The only problem was, I don’t think too many people at the event were paying attention to her past plight other than Adrienne, Paul, and Russell. It would be a shame if Taylor went through all those emotions for an ungrateful crowd who didn’t know how to shut up and listen to her spill her heart out. Or maybe they felt as if they had shelled enough money for the event to do whatever the hell they wanted. Who knows? Maybe, I’m overanalyzing that scene, but something that serious should’ve had a completely silent room at full attention to Taylor’s words.

Earlier in the episode, Adrienne invited Taylor to train with her kickboxing instructor. When Taylor’s turn came up, she let out some serious heat, prompting everyone to wonder who the hell she was thinking about while throwing those punches. Maybe it was her past experiences as a kid with domestic violence? Or how about Russell? The latter might be the best bet at the moment.


Still stuck on the battle with Kyle (seriously, it’s been almost five episodes later), Camille announces to her friends that she wants to smooth things over with the other women. D.D., Camille’s lap dog of friend, thinks this is a dumb idea, but Nick, Camille’s boy toy ‘friend’, feels as if it’s the most logical thing to do, because the entire feud is past old right now.

In previous reviews, Camille has been compared to former Real Housewives of New Jersey villain Danielle Staub, which kind of makes D.D. Beverly Hill‘s answer to Kim G. according to the previews for the upcoming dinner bloodbath. Maybe she’s bitter she didn’t make the cut for RHOBH? Just a suggestion.

Bottom line? Camille needs to move on and let sleeping dogs lie, or get a nasty bite from Kyle which could prove fatal in her social life.


Speaking of stuff getting old, I refuse to believe Cedric jet-setted across the globe to find the Todds and not know how to drive. There is something seriously wrong with this picture and I think Lisa already pinpointed the bad vibe culprit. Is Cedric playing dumb to stay under the Todd’s care? If this is so, it’s not a good look to be considered a bum on national television, Cedric. If you don’t have the cash to play in the sandbox, then you might want to exit as soon as possible. Leave all toys behind as you go, please.


While Camille was still steaming about their argument from some eons back, Kyle was preparing to race for charity in Napa Valley. As she was doing this Kyle had to face two dilemmas, one of which involved getting her private parts waxed so she can withstand the bike seat better. Not much of a dilemma, but it was basis for a quick laugh. Who brings their daughter to see them getting bikini wax? Don’t answer that…

The other obstacle involved tearing herself away from her kids, which is ironic since Kyle usually blames Kim for that same thing. As Mauricio was trying to utilize the weekend as a means for some privacy, Kyle brings up wanting another baby. Wow! But you have four girls already! As much as I love Kyle, the next time she mentions Kim being too attached to her kids, I hope someone calls her out for her contradiction, presumably Kim.


Speaking of Kim, her entire segment sent me for a loop. Who is Single Gary and why did she lie about having a newborn kid? If it was a little snicker giggle moment, then it went right over my head, and possibly Single Gary’s head as well…

So what did you guys think? Are you looking forward to the dinner party massacre Thursday?
