'RHOBH' Finale Recap: Taylor Armstrong & Kim Richards Miss Pandora's Wedding

Tue, January 24, 2012 12:01am EST by 11 Comments

The housewives finished off the season on a joyous note with Pandora Vanderpump’s wedding and a final meeting of the housewives a few weeks after Russell Armstrong’s death.

The Jan. 23 season finale of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills centered around the glamorous wedding of Pandora Vanderpump and Jason Sabo. While Lisa Vanderpump was scurrying around trying to plan the perfect event with famous wedding planner, Kevin Lee, the Vanderpumps’ outdoor tennis court was transformed into an extravagant venue.

Kevin Lee’s late arrival frustrated Lisa, who worried the party would not be ready in time. In perfect Beverly Hills fashion, however, the planning was completed just in time for Pandora’s big walk down the aisle.

The housewives were in attendance in their most fabulous attire — with the exception of Taylor Armstrong and Kim Richards. Although not discussed in detail in this episode, Russell Armstrong committed suicide just days prior to the wedding which explains her absence. Kim’s absence at Pandora’s wedding, however, was unexplained.

The housewives had a wonderful time at Pandora’s wedding, and three weeks later the group returned for a final meeting (once again without Kim). Camille Grammer raved about her new boyfriend, Dimitri Charalambopoulos, and showed off cell phone pics of his toned body. The housewives giggled at the sight of these pictures as Taylor Armstrong entered the room.

Taylor Armstrong looked surprisingly considering her ex-husband passed away just a few weeks earlier. She explained that she and her daughter Kennedy were getting better and better with each passing day and are looking forward to the future.

The conclusion of the show looked ahead to more recent events in each of the housewives’ lives. Kyle Richards wrote a memoir on advice for women which included a section on “sisterly love.” Kim Richards entered rehab — also, she’s not pregnant, in case anyone was wondering — and Taylor Armstrong began writing a book which is due out next month.

All in all, the RHOBH season 2 finale ended on a hopeful note without the usual drama that plagues these housewives.

What did you think of the season finale, HollywoodLifers?

I love Lisa and Adrienne most out of all the housewives. They are the only two whom live a true Beverly Hills life. I concur! Get rid of Taylor…she bring nothing to the show, not interested in her story at all. She needs to go!!

Congrats Pandora and Jason!

90% of the episode was great … until Taylor made an appearance.
Hoping she is gone next year. She should sort herself and her lawsuits out and take care of her child.

I loved Pandiras wedding and the best book in town is Lisa Vanderpump’s! I’m still praying that Taylor will not represent wives who’s husbands commited suicide in “Beverly Hills”. That’s a totally different show Andy…!

totally agree on all points. ironically, while trying to be america’s bff, the real “mean girl” is what shows up the most.

PANDORA’S WEDDING WAS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WEDDINGS I HAVE EVER SEEN. SO SOFT, SOMEWHAT OVER THE TOP, BUT ELEGANT. I COULD WATCH THE ENTIRE EPISODE OVER AND OVER, CONGRATULATIONS TO THE VANDER PUMP FAMILY.
