After three grueling installments of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunions, season 7 is finally over. I can't say we got a whole lot of closure, but that'll make for a better next season. Even though the housewives attempted to smooth things over amongst themselves, there were still some pretty explosive and jaw-dropping moments.
Here are 15 of the most noteworthy moments from the reunion, parts 1-3.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Part 1 Recap: Can These Ladies Heal Any Old Wounds?>>>
Erika and Lisa Rinna Are Wearing the Same Shoes
On the scandal scale, this is pretty mild. But it does seem strange that these ladies wouldn't have a conversation about what they're going to wear to avoid situations just like this. Neither of the housewives made a big deal about it, but one text could've kept this from even being a thing.
Dorit Defends Herself About Talking Too Much by Talking Too Much
It doesn't take long for the ladies to come together for a friend-tervention about Dorit's excessive talking. Even the sweet, mild-mannered Eileen tells her to "hush." Naturally, in defense of all that talking, she launches into a 8-minute diatribe about why she talks so much, what happens when she's talking, and what we can expect about her talking in the future. Oh, the irony!
We Watch Rinna Watch Kyle Call Her "Easier to Manipulate"
The best part of the reunions is watching the ladies react to all the nasty things the other ladies said about them. When they give those snarky interviews, making catty judgements to producers, they do so in a vacuum. By the time the reunion rolls around, they've already watched them as they aired and now they get to confront them on the couch.
Everybody Loves Vanderpump's Impression of Rinna -- Because It's Mean
Kyle's face says it all. Watching the replay of Vandperpump's squeaky impression of Lisa Rinna's infamous mantra, "Own it," had us all cringe-laughing. It's become a bit of running joke over the last few seasons as Rinna demands everyone "own their sh*t." Although she definitely has the most to own at this point.
Dorit Calls Erika's Lady Bits a "Pink Elephant"
Before the talk of Erika's vag had droned on and on, Dorit insisted on addressing "the pink elephant" in the room. Never one to miss an opportunity, host Andy Cohen slowed the conversation down enough to clarify. She asked Dorit, "Did you just call Erika's V a 'pink elephant?'" Of course that brought a laugh and the tension was momentarily lifted. Unfortunately for us, this wasn't the end of the talk about Erika's panties.
PK's Refusal to Apologize to Erika's Husband
When Erika first proposed that PK apologize to her husband, it was a dumb idea to begin with. I chalked it up to Hong Kong vibes and too much champagne. But then she brought it up again at the reunion, and PK wasn't having any of it. I hate to take his side because he's the worst, but he's right. He scoffed at the idea and completely dismissed it.
PK Takes Rinna and Erika's Inventory
And by this I mean he called them right on out on their crap. He told Rinna that she was "certifiable." He also said a lot of silly things about Dorit getting bullied, but nobody thinks that's true. After acting as the catalyst for Pantygate and its subsequent rippling effects, he goes after Erika's marriage, calling it "troubled." Just stay in your own lane, there, buddy. Clean your own side of the street.
The Beverly Hills Greeting
This is RHOB silliness at its best. The reunion producers put together a little montage that highlights all the cheek kisses, shrill compliments and forced laughs the women hurl at each other upon greeting. It never fails.
Eden Is Vindicated
Thanks to a little bit of clever editing, Eden gets to witness all of Rinna's gossiping in one spot. Too bad Real Housewives isn't like football and we can just run the footage back. That sure would have saved Eden a lot of trouble. Finally after all this time, everybody can see that Eden wasn't really the troublemaker after all. She was the scapegoat for Rinna's shenanigans, but that didn't stop Rinna from digging in. Eden just sat there and sipped her tea ... feeling all right.
Kim Gives the Bunny Back
Kyle gave the best reactions in the second part. As you can see here, she's shrinking away from the very embarrassing thing that is about to happen. Kim doesn't flinch at all, telling Rinna she should give the bunny to someone else with better energy. You could hear the record scratch as everyone froze from the secondhand embarrassment. It was that brutal. Andy Cohen couldn't even save the vibe from Kim's wrath. By the way, the bunny found a home in the Bravo clubhouse.
Kim Gives Chase
After Kim ceremoniously returns the bunny to Rinna, things get emotional and Rinna walks off the set. When everyone starts to apply to a little pressure to Kim, she mostly stands her ground. After a few minutes of guilt from Kyle, she actually follows Rinna. She's chasing her through the studio. Rinna refuses to talk to her and Kim follows her for a few minutes before giving up. Kim chalks Rinna's rebuffing up to this being "the real Lisa."
Rinna's F-You Buzzer
Rinna returns to the group, now armed with a buzzer loaded with phrases that include some expletives. Anytime someone tries to get in the way of her "speaking truth" she buzzes them.
Yup. This is a thing that actually happened. With subtitles and all. This "never before seen footage" reveals Giggy's feelings about the latest addition to the Vanderpump animal family. By the way, we don't really care.
"You're a Sick Woman"
Lisa Rinna comes right out and accuses Kim of being a "sick woman." Ostensibly she's talking about the humiliation of having the bunny returned to her, but we really know she's alluding to her drug use. You're not sly, Rinna.
Lisa Vanderpump Breaks Down
Vanderpump gets super emotional talking about her son's search for his birth parents. Oh, and those dogs in Yulin. You hardly ever see Vanderpump shed actual tears, so this was a big moment.
