Carlton Gebbia may be new to “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” but she is a woman who has not wasted any time when it comes to figuring out new ways to get airtime. There are really two ways to do that almost without fail every time: You either get into some sort of massive shouting argument with someone, or you do something ridiculous while also wearing a tiny amount of clothing. Based on the preview video below, Carlton is clearly opting for the latter.
While at a very popular store in the area, Carlton decides to try on a tiny bikini, and then show it off to her husband. The problem? Her mother-in-law is also present! As though this wasn’t weird enough, some of the dance moves that she pulls off in front of her are straight out of the Miley Cyrus playbook. It’s almost no surprise at all that Carlton admits in a confessional that it took some time for her to win the woman over.
Take a look below at the full synopsis for the episode, which features some other drama courtesy of Brandi and Joyce, who find a new way to escalate their troubles yet again after what has felt at times like a full-on assault on the part of the former for no reason:
“It’s a happy time for some of the housewives, as Yolanda celebrates her anniversary with David, Kim takes an exuberant ride in a racecar, and Carlton shops for racy lingerie with. . .her mother-in-law?! Brandi and Joyce avoid each other at a fitting for Kyle’s upcoming fashion show, but they come face to face when Lisa invites them to a group dinner at SUR. Neither Brandi nor Joyce hold their feelings back and the night devolves into name-calling and the lobbing of “f— bombs.”
Probably the least surprising thing of all about this episode is that once again, Lisa and Bravo have found a way to work SUR in there. Why are you trying to hard to make “Vanderpump Rules” happen? It already feels like it’s doing okay enough on its own.
