All students well versed in the history of the “Real Housewives” franchise know that the real drama happens on group trips. These fully paid for adventures always start off as a good way for the girls to bond, but by the return flight things are almost always worse than when they arrived. Getting the women out of their element puts them on the defensive, and don’t forget about the increase in alcohol. Drinking to excess is the gasoline in reality TV, and the “Housewives” tip them back when on holiday.
What then do you think will happen tonight on an all new episode of the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” when the women take a group trip to Palm Springs? Would you be surprised if I said tons of drama and fighting, with a dash of slurred conversations? Tonight episode, titled “Palm Spring Breakers”, has a synopsis from Bravo where every line is about fighting.
The ladies travel to Palm Springs for a girls’ bonding trip and Kyle is surprised when Carlton confronts her about a list of issues. As the group relaxes by the pool, Brandi reveals that she and Carlton made out, much to Carlton’s chagrin. When questioned about her pentagram tattoo, Carlton finally reveals she is a practicing Wiccan, eliciting eye rolls from some of the women. Brandi riles up Joyce by repeatedly calling her Jaclyn, amongst other things and the group dinner goes downhill quickly when a tipsy Brandi picks a fight with Kyle.
A drunk Brandi pushing the other Housewives buttons? That’s so unlike her. The new girl, Joyce, gets her formal initiation in tonight’s episode when Brandi needles her by referring to her as Jaclyn. Of course Brandi is so drunk during the dinner tonight that she looks sleepy, which only makes their interaction better. Good to see less of a focus on how terrible Kyle is this week. The fourth season has been nothing by Kyle bashing in the first five episodes. Here’s a preview from Bravo of Kyle and Carlton shopping for Palm Springs clothing before her Wiccan beliefs are fully revealed.
Come tonight for the beautiful Palm Springs views, and stay for the drunk angry hen pecking. It’s an all new episode of the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” kicking off tonight.
