In many ways joining the “Real Housewives” franchise is like going to prison. The new meat has to prove their worth to the other women before they can truly earn the group’s respect. This year the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” added two new women to the team in Joyce and Carlton. Each of the women have gone out of their way to make their bones, and prove they belong to the rest of the crew. There’s two ways for women to get initiated into a gang; beat in or sexed in.
Carlton chose the sexy route with her initiation. Already she’s made out with Brandi, and made numerous allusions to her open ended sex life. She did everything but slowly eat a peach while reading Penthouse Forum. While Carlton was raising eyebrows, Joyce decided to raise her fists. Joyce has been locked in a season long fight with Brandi about only the most absurd issues. It all started when Brandi kept on referring to Joyce as Jaclyn. The fight has now escalated to include spouses and the rest of the group. Think of their fight as the Bravo version of the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand.
Tonight’s all new episode heavily features both of the new cast members. According to the preview both women are keeping to form.
It’s a happy time for some of the housewives, as Yolanda celebrates her anniversary with David, Kim takes an exuberant ride in a racecar, and Carlton shops for racy lingerie with. . .her mother-in-law?! Brandi and Joyce avoid each other at a fitting for Kyle’s upcoming fashion show, but they come face to face when Lisa invites them to a group dinner at SUR. Neither Brandi nor Joyce hold their feelings back and the night devolves into name-calling and the lobbing of “f— bombs.”
Nothing says “desperate for reality fame” than trying on lingerie in front of your mother-in-law. As creepy as that sentence is, the video preview is even worse.
And if that “it’s just wrong” moment doesn’t have you hooked then stick around for the promised F-bombs. The rest of the cast must be happy to sit back and let the new girls carry the load of the show.
