We pick up where we left off with Erika having a go at Dorit, who says she doesn’t want to make an effort any more. Erika calls her out for her neediness and always needing confirmation that Erika likes her. Erika tells her if she wanted her attention, she’s got it. Dorit denies it, and tells Erika that she’s not nice or interesting. Hmmm-has Erika touched a nerve? She thinks so. LVP tries to defend Dorit (this entire time Kyle and LVP have been watching this back and forth like a tennis match) and here it comes…wait for it…the real reason for everything…pantygate. Erika asks Dorit how she could like her after the whole underwear thing? Dorit is sitting there with her mouth hanging open (get used to it, she does that most of the episode) and shocked. Erika feels that Dorit took something that was just a moment and ran with it, making it about getting PK’s attention. Dorit still has her mouth hanging open. She then wonders what Erika expects, wearing a short dress and not crossing her legs. Rinna tries to defend Erika, and Dorit sort of backpeddles saying she’s not making the short dress/uncrossed legs an issue but she’s super passive-aggressive with that. Erika points out that she doesn’t find being talked about and made fun of very fun.
Dorit says had she known it hurt Erika’s feelings she would have apologized so Erika says, “well, it hurt my feelings.” Dorit doesn’t apologize. Erika just wants Dorit to stop talking about her, so Dorit is like nooooo problem. But Rinna’s sixth sense is speaking to her and she wants to know what’s REALLY going on-why can’t Dorit just apologize? Dorit says fine, but she’s not apologizing for PK staring because he’s a man with a pulse and can’t be blamed. She then blames all of the ladies for making it a big deal and Rinna isn’t having THAT so she stands up and goes off-Dorit calls that “in my face” and tells her to never do that again. Rinna flips her off as she sits back down. Dorit tells her she’s got no class but Rinna doesn’t care. Eileen tells Dorit that she was ok until she lumped the ladies all in one group and put the blame on them. Eileen reminds Dorit that she told her that Erika’s feelings were hurt. Dorit says she never tried to defame Erika, make her look bad or hurt her feelings-and Erika tells her “well, you did all 3.”
Erika can’t get off the junk boat fast enough. LVP follows her to tell her that she doesn’t always have to be OK-Erika is crying and Kyle dabs her tears. Eileen goes to hug Erika and Erika says “don’t hug me”-I get that, if you’re on the edge of being really upset and someone hugs you that can be the nudge that sets you over the edge. Erika is working really hard to keep it together-the other women are unsure how to handle this so are sort of cautiously circling. Erika says she just wants to go chill out.
The group of 3 women are walking back to the hotel. Dorit tells LVP and Kyle that all the people that Erika pays to tell her how fabulous she is, it must be going to her head. LVP wishes Erika had just said all along she was still upset, and why does she have such a wall up? Kyle says you don’t know how people were raised or how their childhoods may have been. Dorit says that she’s given Erika many chances to open up to her.
In the car, Eileen says that Dorit should have just apologized. Erika says “you have to mean it”.
Back in the hotel room, Eden is finally taking that God awful wig off, Erika apologizes for getting so upset. Eileen is sitting next to Erika and comforting her-Erika thanks Eileen for being so supportive, and leans her head on Eileen’s shoulder.
The next morning Dorit is on the phone with PK and says it’s killing her being away from her family. She rehashes the confrontation with Erika, and says that Erika is “diluted”. PK tries to analyze Erika and Dorit reassured PK there’s nothing she can’t handle because she’s given birth twice.
The ladies all gather in the hotel for breakfast and to go see Big Buddha. They’re all going to see sacred Oxen and the biggest Buddha in Hong Kong. Erika and Dorit don’t speak at all.
The sky gondolas have glass bottoms (which I’m sure are beautiful but with a paralyzingly fear of heights that’s a big pile of nope for me) and LVP is teasing Kyle and Dorit who are being super extra about being scared. Kyle guarantees that Eileen is freaking out-but the other gondola is full of relaxed women taking photos and videos of the view. Back go to LVP-Kyle-Dorit gondola and Kyle is still flipping out ( I think she thinks it’s cute). LVP is wearing some high ass heels to be climbing 248 steps.
The pouring rain comes as they get to the destination but luckily they all have matching umbrellas and ponchos. Erika is drowning her Miu Miu shoes (label drop). They come across a sacred oxen and LVP wants to bring him home.
Eileen and Rinna go to a big fire with big incense sticks-Kyle facetimes with Mauricio before visiting Buddha. They all gaze with awe at the Buddha and decide to climb the stairs to get a closer look. They get to the top, look at him, and decide it’s time to eat and shop.
In Dorit’s room she’s got her makeup artist doing her face (wait-wasn’t she just bitching about Erika bringing her glam squad?) and is complaining to the MUA about Rinna and Erika.
Dinner is at a beautiful restaurant with big windows everywhere overlooking the water. Even the scenery can’t save this dinner. It’s awkward and tense, until Eden says there’s an elephant at the table-Rinna lets it out of its cage by asking Dorit if she’s apologized to Erika-LVP tells Rinna to butt out but Erika announces that no, she hasn’t. LVP is talking quietly to Erika and trying to minimize the whole thing, Erika is not having it. She tells LVP that she gets that Dorit is LVP’s friend and that she feels the need to defend her, but…. LVP thinks Erika is making a big deal.
Eileen tells Dorit that she was just trying to help her, Dorit asks “what was I supposed to do!” and Erika cuts her off with “Shut your mouth? Not talk about it?” and proceeds to dress Dorit DOWN. Dorit has her mouth hanging open. Again. Rinna asks Dorit if she trusts PK. Dorit is almost offended and then says “implicitly”. Kyle, for some reason, takes great umbrage with that question and turns it in to “you leave the husbands out of it blah blah” but I think that’s a very valid question Rinna asked. There’s a lot of arguing amongst the group, Kyle is blowing Rinna’s question way out of proportion. Erika wants to know why all the deference to PK and not to her? Kyle then escalates it into “messing with marriages” ( hit a nerve there, Umansky?) and that sets Erika OFF. She was accused of flashing husbands. Erika wants to know why Kyle is so worried about Dorits marriage but what about Erika’s? Kyle backs up and says that’s really not it, she just doesn’t like Rinna saying Dorit doesn’t trust PK. Rinna didn’t say that but ok. Rinna wants to know what’s really going on here-because this is not about what Erika is or isn’t wearing. Well, Erika is going to tell her. It’s about seizing a moment that should have been over, spinning it and making Erika out to be a slut or whore.
Dorit starts to apologize, Erika interrupts her and says she wants her to apologize to Tom for dragging his wife through the mud. And while she’s at it she wants PK to apologize to Tom too. Dorit isn’t receptive to that. She says she can apologize if she feels like it but she doesn’t run PK. Erika is all, oh you don’t? Dorit says sorry, not going to have PK call Tom. Rinna and Eileen say they’d have their husbands apologize if necessary, Rinna asks Dorit “can’t you see Erika is hurting?” Dorit wants Rinna to STFU and butt out.
Erika tells Dorit “this sucks”. Dorit apologizes but then negates it by saying it’s not a big deal. Eileen starts defending Dorit and Erika is shooting her eye daggers. Eileen says that “Dorit apologized, what else do you want? She didn’t kill your child”. Big. Mistake.
Erika says she doesn’t have to forgive anyone and how dare she bring up her child. Eileen keeps stepping in it and making it worse, Erika is getting madder and madder, tells Eileen to never bring up her kid again. Erika is seething. Dorit says “she didn’t talk about your kid”-Erika tells them to shut the fuck up. Do these chicks not see that Erika is at Defcon 1!?!
Rinna crosses the table to comfort Erika who is sobbing. Erika shamed Eileen for bringing her son up, he’s a police officer that risks his life every day-she can barely breathe she’s so upset. We all know this isn’t about her son, right?
Eileen is on the verge of tears and makes the poor decision to say “let’s all take a moment to honor Erika’s son”-Erika is all no thanks. It’s a mess-Eileen is teary, Kyle is trying to defend her, Erika is still losing it.
Rinna says she’s sorry to change to subject but has a question for Dorit. Uh oh. She wants to know why she was left alone at the dinner table at Dorit’s party. Where did everyone go? Kyle looks confused and asks “what does that mean?” And I want to know where she’s going with this too-“were people doing coke in your bathroom?” And there it is. I’ve said repeatedly that Dorit has looked very……alert. Allegedly. I know the look. Anyway-Dorit is indignant, Kyle and LVP are horrified.
Next week: Dorit has a coke den. LVP v Rinna. Erika and Eileen collide. LVP has a party.
Talk soon Lovelies
