Kyle is organizing her garage with the help of a professional organizer because if Mauricio had his way he’d just toss it all. She’s got a ton of random silverware and memorabilia. LVP is on the phone so Kyle invites her to a dessert tasting that she’s hosting with Carnie Wilson, who is a dessert chef, making desserts. She’s also invited all of the warring factions like Eden, Kim, and Rinna so needs some LVP backup. LVP puts her on hold.
Eileen and Vince are having Erika over to read lines in preparation for Erika’s upcoming guest spot on Y&R. Why is Erika’s shirt blurred? Vince watches them read and gives pointers-but Erika is fantastic and will do just fine.
Rinna is calling Harry for some support-she’s slowly having an epiphany that she may have really said the things Eden said she did-she assumes Kim knows by now and with Kyle’s dessert tasting and everyone being there, she knows she’s going to have to answer some questions and “own it”. Her amnesia is fading and she says that “well, I guess I said it”. She’s expressing her apprehension to Harry and explains that she was only trying to connect with Eden.
LVP and Ken roll up in the Bentley to check out the new space for their dog rescue center. LVP says it’ll be everything “doggie”. It’s a huge, beautiful space. Ken and LVP start to discuss the Dogmeat Festival (I can’t even stand typing that) in Yulin (I can’t. Brutal horrifying can’t). It brings them both to tears and I can see why. They’ve saved dogs and spoken in front of Congress and I can’t even talk about this anymore just tell me where to donate. I’ll post a link at the end of this recap.
Carnie Wilson arrives at Kyle’s and it looks like she’s got a crew with her. Kyle brings her to the patio where the tables are all set up. She tells Carnie that Kim is coming and she’s wanted them to meet for a long time. Carnie asks if she’s sober and Kyle says yes but doesn’t know for how long. Kyle asks Carnie how long she’s been sober for and it’s 12 years with no relapse. Kyle seems to be asking for advice-Carnie says she tries to lead by example. Now Kyle is off to change clothes.
Erika picks Rinna up in the limo for Kyle’s party-Rinna has brought along a stuffed bunny for Kim’s grandson.
Kim arrives with her sponsor-Kyle thinks that’s its to send a message to the others and backup/support.
In the back of the limo, Rinna tells Erika that she did say that stuff about Kim to Eden after all. Erika’s response? “Ooooooooooooh.” I love Erika.
Kyle and Carnie are reminiscing over their time on “The Apprentice”. Carnie talks REALLY fast.
Erika is disappointed to hear Rinna admit to saying those things about Kyle and Kim to Eden. She tells Rinna “you’re gonna GET IT!”-Rinna knows.
Kyle and Eileen are eating caviar, which apparently Eileen LOVES, and Eileen asks Kyle if she invited Eden. Kyle says she did and asks Eileen her opinion of Kim’s sobriety as of late, Eileen thinks that yes, Kim has been sober recently. Eileen also defends Rinna by saying she hasn’t heard Rinna questioning that.
Carnie is asking Kim about her impending Gramma-hood. Kim admits that a year ago it wouldn’t have been possible for her to be involved in everything.
Dorit arrives and shows a cute video on her phone of her daughter sort of crawling/scooting towards Dorit’s red designer shoes. LVP and Eden arrive, Eden does her weird, extra, awkward hugs. She looks like she’s trying to steal your soul. Anyway-Carnie and Eden have met but Carnie doesn’t remember. Eden greets Kim, and Kim gives her some serious side-eye. Side note: whoever is doing Kim’s makeup this season is on point. She looks younger without all of that heavy, poorly applied eye makeup. This natural look she’s rocking is much more soft and flattering. Love it. Anyway. Kim says that Eden makes her skin crawl. Carnie and Kim are having a conversation (with Eden sitting across from Kim) about the space Kim is in, not letting negativity in-and make no mistake that Kim is sending that as a clear message to Eden who is listening to every word. I almost think Carnie is in on it. Eden looks uncomfortable.
Rinna and Erika make their entrance-LVP shades the stuffed bunny Rinna brought so with that Rinna goes looking for Kim. Erika can’t help but spy and give the others a play by play. Rinna presents the bunny , Kim says thank you, then in her talking head says how fake Rinna is. Camille is here! We’ve been seeing a lot of Camille. Kim can’t stand Eden another second so gets up from the table.
While Erika and Kim talk babywatch, Rinna pulls Eileen aside into a living room to announce her sudden memory recovery. She does this with so much extra drama and just extra-ness-she ties Kyle’s admission in the Hamptons that she fears a middle of the night phone call about Kim into her “near death” statement (grasping) and confesses to Eileen. Eileen is very disappointed.
Meanwhile, outside, Kyle thanks everyone for coming and supporting Carnie’s new business-as Carnie is talking about her company, Kyle’s friend Jana quietly snitches on Rinna and Eileen for being in the house talking. Kyle goes in to check on them and Rinna starts immediately with the high drama-she can’t just SAY it, she’s got to pad it with copious amounts of bullshit. Just as Rinna is getting to the confession part-Carnie Wilson busts in and calls them all back outside.
They all follow Carnie outside and right away Rinna just rips the band aid off and starts the apology. I do give her credit for doing it in front of a big crowd. Kyle looks PISSED and says Rinna flat out lied to her in Mexico. Kim isn’t having this apology at all-then Rinna kind of throws Eden under the bus. LVP jumps in, then Rinna ruins the apology by telling Kim she provoked her. Kim then lectures Rinna on how her words affect Kim and Kim’s entire family. She shows her sponsor off to Rinna like SEE?! Rinna is all-well, a sober person doesn’t act that way so how was I supposed to know. Because Rinna is the authority on how sober people “act”. Kim comes for Eden-I think she’s been dying for this-and out of nowhere LVP tries defending Eden but Kyle tells her to “pick a lane” and shuts it down. Rinna wants to know if they can heal so asks Kim’s sponsor her opinion. She says they can. Now everyone is coming for Eden and there’s a lot of yelling-Kim and Kyle tell Eden to stop comparing the Richards sisters to her and Cat because it’s very different. Kim gets kind of snide about Cat (Kim still has that mean streak). Carnie pipes up and says if you’re holding on to resentment you’re still drunk. Kim is still playing semantics and innocent with her Harry comment to Lisa. That drives me nuts-she knows she was insinuating something negative.
Kyle actually defends Rinna about Kim’s Harry comment. Rinna explains how that hurt her family as well, and Kim gives a frustrated apology. Rinna accepts. Carnie says she finds all of this, as an outsider, “fascinating” (that’s one word for it) and tells Kim she needs to be compassionate to the loss of Eden and Rinna’s sisters, and understand that they’re coming from a place of fear. She tells the others that they have to understand that as alcoholics, they drank for reasons that may still be there. Kim explains that the death comment hit a nerve. Rinna really wants to move on but LVP doesn’t buy it. The sponsor tells Kim she feels that it’s done and Kim needs to let it go-Kim doesn’t look too convinced.
Next Week- chubby strippers on Kyle, Dorit shades Erika, LVP manipulates Rinna, Erika gets weepy.
