The girls head to Camille’s house in Beaver Creek for a weekend together, which ends in tears!
Russell Armstrong‘s death still hangs heavy over the second episode of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, as Camille Grammer invites Taylor Armstrong, Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Kim Richards and Adrienne Maloof to Colorado for a ladies’ only trip.
At the beginning of the episode, the happenings between husbands and wives or just with the women themselves seem both trivial and manipulatively set against the backdrop of Russell’s suicide.
Kyle moves into a new house and the former child-actress reflects on how lucky she is. Adrienne engages in light squabbling with her husband, Paul Nassif, over her impending time away. Camille reflects on her divorce from Kelsey Grammer and laments she has to sell the house which she’s opening up to her co-stars this episode.
Meanwhile, as the women begin their journey to Camille’s — it’s the back of the limo that sees the most action.
It’s Kyle and Taylor versus Lisa when Lisa’s husband Ken Todd’s comment during last episode’s dinner party was revisited. (As a refresher: Ken said he’d feel weak if he needed a therapist to save his marriage after Taylor had revealed that she and a yet-to-be-divorced-and-still-alive Russell were in counseling.)
The tense confrontation ends in a commercial break and when we return, they’ve arrived at Camille’s, no worse for the wear.
A crisis over one-too-few beds is quickly resolved when Kim offers to share a room with her sister. (Do you see what I mean about trivial issues looming under the larger one?)
But the drama comes to a swell when the women discus manscaping in the car on the way to dinner. (As you can imagine, Kelsey, according to his ex-wife, has a very hairy back. To much information, Camille. TMI.)
The next morning, we’re treated to a frivolous interlude of skiing. But afterward, Kyle and Taylor end up in the hot tub while the rest of the women sleep, discussing the inevitable end of Taylor’s marriage.
The two talk about Taylor’s therapy and her fear of being alone, but Kyle questions what her friend is fighting for. It’s a sad moment when a teary-eyed Taylor says she still loves her husband and Kyle tries to keep her from blaming herself — a conversation that could have happened after Russell’s death, eerily enough.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is it hard to watch the women have fun and fight over silly things, knowing what happens next?
