S09.E18: Pardon Our French

Recommended Posts

Will we get 11 more episodes of Erika saying she's okay with it when she isn't?

If only someone had bought Erika a pair of underpants at that market!

Kyle, please just shut up. All I hear when she is on a fake I'm sorry, you look amazing, but what about ME!, blah, blah blah. I just tune her out now, not interested in what she is pontificating about.

Rinna, is just a B class soap actress who waits for her story lines on who she should go after next. Don't give a flying fig about her Harry Hamlin or their devil spawns.

Good for Erica in realizing that Kyle & Teddi were trying to bait her and she didn't bite and looks like she doesn't again next week.

Could care less about Dorit, but she does have cute well behaved children (thanks nannys)

Sad about Camilles house, how dreadful.

Bummer about Denise, I thought she would be a good addition. Wrong!

She was a producer on that show, not an actress, correct? I'm not sure what that has to do with the idea of not understanding the concept of a performance persona. She can understand the need for people to act on a television show without emotionally connecting to the idea of a "performance persona."

I guess being a producer means that you're totally ignorant to other parts of the process - even if it's a process you once took part in? And others around you? I mean, hell, I acted in high school plays but if I can understand this from my little corner of Canada, I'm pretty sure someone who grew up in and around the industry gets it more than I do.

I wish that Kyle had directly said, "Rinna, I don't think you acted appropriately at Farrah's party." Because IMO Rinna owes her an apology and yet, here we are.

She should have. Instead she chose to continually try to get Erika to say that she was personally offended by what Rinna did.

How many more episodes until we get a Lisa sighting?  I was expecting to see her in the previews, but it turns out this is a two-parter? 

She said that BRAVO has cut her out of the rest of the season and she was a no-show at the Reunion.   So, no more LVP, who was also a failed actress.

I completely agree with ChitChat about Erika. I think she honestly got a kick out of Rinna dressing up as her and knows Rinna didn’t mean to make her out to be a nasty person. Erika Jayne is known for being over the top, and she does like the word c***y. Everything else was clearly Rinna. I know most of us wouldn’t want to be portrayed in an ugly manner, but if Erika said she wasn’t offended and it’s all performance, drop it! 

I could be mistaken, but I think this is different from what happened with pantygate. She instantly looked upset with that. She didn’t seem bothered at this dinner until the ladies kept pushing.

Well gosh.  I didn't even get through the first page of comments because I feel I watched something very different.  The chateau was lovely.  Everyone loved their assigned rooms.

I think everyone was very concerned about Camille and Denise's homes.  And sad about Camille.

Erika's comment about beating up Camille was a joke.  I'm not crazy about Erika and even I saw it that it was a joke.

Yeah, these ladies get overdressed.  I wish Denise was there to walk in wearing a pair of jeans with a nice top.

Two mentions of LVP.  Two talking heads.  Nothing during the actual trip.  Kyle mentioning past trips.  Erika talking about feeling safe talking about stuff.  Again.  Nothing during the trip.

The whole Rinna playing Erika Jane....I get both sides.  I can't stand Kim but I do think she went a little too far.  I get Teddi's point of view and I think some jumped in a little too hard.

WHat exactly is Teddi's point of view  here? Just what is she so confused about ? Why Riina wanted Erika Jayne to call Kim a "C"? Because Teddi thinks that is so insulting to Erika? She needed to take her cue from Erika who said she didn't care.  It wasn't her. So Lisa Rinna, one of the biggest mouths ever, claims to be to scared to say it as herself. Crock of shit but, who cares? You either believe that is something that Erika would do or you don't. Nothing to be confused about.  She used the most, well second to herself, over the top outspoken person to say what she wanted to say for two years.

However, next week, when Kyle saysI feel like you really dont want to be around us, I think she is right ! EJ or EG has a short fuse and it has been lit.

I think that Teddi is sooo impressed with her new "fashionista" persona (I also think she's hired a stylist) that she wants to make sure that all these other women are noticing all the new designer additions to her wardrobe.

It was rude and ill mannered, for sure, though!  That table was probably some kind of antique.

Kyle and Teddi wanted EJ to admit that she was bothered and annoyed by Rinna's attack on Kim all in the name of being EJ.  EJ said she didn't have a problem with it.  Kyle & Teddi didn't like that answer.  They kept on and on trying to "understand."  There was nothing more to understand.  EJ said she was fine with Rinna dressing up as her and that it didn't bother her that Rinna attacked Kim like that.  

Kyle can feel however she wants to.  EJ wanted to be left out of the discussion.   

No, they didn't. They both expressed how they would have felt had it been their persona. They didn't insist that she feel the same way, they just expressed confusion. 

I think that part of the reason that the conversation kept going round and round is because Erika then shut down and kept saying she was "fine" when clearly SOMETHING was bothering her. So then they were in the position of having to ferret out what was bothering her. 

I just don't really get Erika, I find her pretty humorless and cold, for all of her EJ persona. And so maybe that is why I am empathizing with Kyle and Teddi here, because Erika's reactions to things are often confusing to me, too.

I didn't say she was "ignorant" of the other parts of the process, I said she doesn't emotionally connect to the idea of a performance persona. I work in PR, which means I often have to work with graphic designers in my job. I get that what they do is important but emotionally, I don't connect to their process because it is different from the way I think about my work. So I think something similar happened with Kyle. She understands that actors are important to the line of work she is on, she just doesn't get the finer points of their process because really, she wasn't an actor, she was a kid.

Personally, I think that both Rinna and Erika were being disingenuous - I don't think it was about performance art, I think it was about Rinna wanting to find a way to go after Kim, and Erika just being too self-centered to not understand what Teddi and Kyle were saying. So I have no problem with them calling Rinna out. I just think that they don't fundamentally understand the Erika Jayne persona (and personally, I am with them on that). 

I don't think they were being disingenuous.  They knew very well that Teddi and Kyle were trying to bring Erika in on chastising Rinna for the perceived insult but Erika was having none of it.  Rinna might say that being dressed as Erika led her to channel Erika Jayne and confront Kim but no one is buying that excuse.  Everyone blames Rinna for what she did.  No one thought Erika was speaking through her. Kim's not mad at Erika.

From Erika's POV, what Rinna did was just bad fanfiction of her persona but Erika isn't suffering any consequences of Rinna's actions nor did she think Rinna's impression was meant to be insulting to her.  The only person Rinna wanted to insult was Kim so no harm, no foul to Erika personally. 

1 hour ago, eleanorofaquitaine said:

As for the second thing, I don't really understand the argument. Erika doesn't get to dictate how Kyle feels about Rinna's inappropriate behavior.

Erika can shut it down because they were using her to avoid a direct confrontation with Rinna.  Erika has every right to say "stop making up perceived insults that I didn't find insulting on my behalf when I can speak for myself."

Well, Teddi believes that Erika wouldn't do that and LR believes she would.  That's the confusion for Teddi.  Erika says the persona would.  Ok.  Point taken by Teddi in the end.

This is my wish for next year:

LVP back but with a softer edge not having to deal with these harpies. She for sure is no innocent but she brings the bling and bhills and possibly Vegas filming. But stop with Ken and the personal animal menagerie. Also no Pandora.

Camille back full time rebuilding her house and new life with her new husband. And if her kids are now of age a few shots of them.

Dorit, GONE.

RiNNA, Gone (unless she or Harry files for divorce for REAL) then put all that shit out there and leave off their demon spawns.

Teddi, Gone(just boring Mr. Hand)

Erika, back and in line with LVP & Camille (more Mrs. G please, less EJ) Maybe?

Denise, unfortunately I think she is one and done.

Kyle, demote her to a "friend of" status. Serves her right!

Add one more true housewife who really knows LVP,Camille, Erika and is not a broke ass grifter and this might take off again.

Other wise this show is getting very stale.

Teddi telling Ericka how "she would feel" if Rinna impersonated her and used it as an excuse to be insulting her BFF's sister, and then being "so confused" that Ericka didn't feel the same way was pretty eye roll worthy. What is it with Teddi and Kyle trying to make these major dramas happen? I think they were able to pull  it off with Lisa V and Dorit and the dog. But I don't think Ericka and Dorit will gang up on Rinna, at least not for that.

I have no idea if it's acting. Maybe a little, but I really do think that Kyle wants to punish Rinna for yelling at her sister. And I think Teddi is along for the ride because it gives her something to react to and she likes picking sides and wants others to as well. 

I'm sure these ladies all have insurance on their homes. It's very sad, but it's not Katrina-- they aren't homeless now, and they will be getting a nice insurance check to rebuild. And Rinna was right-- they are okay, and that's all that really matters in the long run.

This.

Erika has annoyed me in the past but I loved her tonight. She saw right through Teddy's passive aggressive "explain it to me" bullshit and wanted no parts of it. 

Unpopular opinion: the trip looks boring. Everything they did there they could have done in their own homes (besides the food, obviously). The place was beautiful and all but it seemed more like a honeymoon spot or summer getaway than a place to go with your girlfriends. And how are they not embarrassed to get all dressed up to walk from the sitting room to the dining room five feet away? Trying way too hard. 

Also, I don't miss Lisa.

Erika shut the pile on right the fuck down. Fuck Teddi. Whenever one of these bitches starts with "I'm just trying to understand" that's the exact opposite of what they're trying to do. If Kyle couldn't take on Rinna by herself then she shouldn't have tried it. If Kyle AND Teddi can't take on Rinna on their own they shouldn't try to enlist Erika. Kyle's gonna be picking up her face if Erika tells her she doesn't care about the latest round of Rinna vs Drunken Richards. Its been years and Kim still won't admit she did anything wrong. She also won't admit the bunny stunt was pretty shitty so who cares about her drunk ass feelings.

Much like Teddi - I was confused tonight.  First they show us Kyle in the kitchen in a bathrobe.  Then we see the sitting room where Teddi seems to be lounging in a negligee and robe; Dorit enters in mannish pajamas; Erika rolls in looking completely bizarre with her bra showing - but that was my first hint that it was now a different time of day and maybe they weren't still in pjs after all.  They were just all dressed up to eat dinner in their own house!  And Dorit even had a little clutch purse 😂😂😂

I thought Kyle was best dressed both nights at dinner - not kudos that she typically receives.  Of course the hat she bought was ridiculous - I was thinking she looked like a policeman, and then she mentioned looking like a member of the Village People.  Exactly!

Teddi in her scarf looked like her mom had just bundled her up to go play in the snow.  If you can't wear it comfortably, take it off.  Also, I'm tired of the "I'm confused" routine when she wants to call someone out.

It's so kind of that cosmopolitan weisenheimer Dorit to travel with these uncouth Americans.  🙄  She wins my personal award for "worst dressed" at both dinners.

If Erika is annoyed she has never been shy to address it. She said she didn't think it was weird but understood that others felt differently. She said she wasn't offended.

My thought was that if this doctor told Rinna that genetics were to blame, then it's even moreso Rinna to blame because she passed down the genes! And modeled the behavior also, IMO.
