As regards Adrienne's "secret", several sites are reporting that she had a difficult pregnancy with her oldest son and used a surrogate for the younger twins. Looking at pictures of the family as a whole, either Paul's genes are SUPER strong, or they're all genetically related. As the story has been told on other blogs (so, ya know, grain of salt and all), the surrogate was a close friend of Adrienne's and a child psychologist advised her not to tell the boys until they were at least 10 (some say older), so they can comprehend the situation. The surrogacy was off limits per her contract with Bravo, thus the edit and cease and desist letter....or if they were in the OC, the cyst and decease order. (Oh, Tamra, how I hate to love your trashy ways!)
But back to tonight's episode...Kyle's daughter graduated out of elementary school, which was nice for her, but I felt bad for the young lady that the occasion gave Kyle a chance to bemoan Kathy and Kim skipping out, but not so much tearing up about her parents' death (she couldn't help them being dead). What surprised me is that Kyle said that her daughter is one year away from her bat mitzvah. All these years, and I missed they were Jewish...not that it's an issue, but it seemed kind of out of left field since I do not recall her ever really expressing any religious belief and I sincerely hope she wasn't joking about it, as sacred rituals are not to be joked about.
Yolanda.....that chicken dinner up in the lemon orchards...wouldn't it have been cold by the time they ate? How did they keep the dog from eating the chicken? Why are you trying to be the perfect version of 1950 Betty Crocker? It's weird she's stuck around this long filming mostly solo. Heck, it's even weird that Kim's still around filming solo (and that she has a "house man" or whatever he's called), but at least she has some history with the show. I'm bored with Yolanda, but maybe WWHL tonight will change my mind (or next week's ep, as things seem to explode).
Marissa, while she doesn't seem caustic, is pretty dull. She had one decent exchange at dinner at Charlie Palmer's, but other than her mother's nagging on her wardrobe, she doesn't bring much to the table. And her mother has nothing on the other insane RH parents...she's no Elsa or George or even the little seen menace that is Vicki's mom on OC.
So the ladies all got along for one dinner. Calm before the storm, I say. This is totally a guilty pleasure for me. I might need a shower before bed.
