‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ reunion (part 3) review: Yolanda Hadid and company wrap things up
Tonight, it all came to an end on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” reunion show … finally. We’re not even going to pretend that we were still hooked on this season and its super-repetitive drama as of late.
As a matter of fact, let’s just go ahead and take off the kid gloves to talk about all of the different ways this final part of the reunion was totally unnecessary.
1. More of the same. Seriously. More of Lisa Vanderpump and Lisa Rinna talking about who brought up this or that when it comes to Yolanda Hadid’s illness. Here’s an update: We don’t care! We only cared for about three minutes. Our heart goes out to Yolanda and what she’s been through, and that’s partially why we are so annoying hearing all of the fighting over who is manipulating who. It really doesn’t matter!
2. Brandi Glanville. Why in the world was she there? It seemed like producers realized that there really was nothing better for them to do other than to bring the frequent lightning rod out to see if she could cause any problems. Yeah, it really didn’t work.
3. Not enough opulence – We feel like at times during the reunion the show forgot what makes it fun beyond the drama: These people all being extremely wealthy and extremely ridiculous. We miss some of the humor that came from these people being loaded and at times completely out of touch.
4. Andy Cohen – Typically he’s really great in these reunions, but by the end of this, we felt like even he was ready to move on.
We’re not calling this season an outright disaster since we like many of the cast members. However, Rinna came across as desperate, Kathryn Edwards was nonexistent beyond OJ Simpson, and Vanderpump and Kyle Richards need something more to do. Grade: D+.
