Sutton Probes Kyle Over Mauricio’S Cheating Rumors, Garcelle Throws A Star-Studded Movie Screening Party & Makes Amends With Dorit As Denise & Larsa Make Cameo


The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills should call this episode “Chaos.” Sutton is making hints regarding marital rumors for Kyle in one corner. In a different corner, we have Garcelle’s film debut and her son Jax questioning Erika about the turmoil from the previous year. Last but not least, Denise Richards has returned to life and is now featured on our TVs. I just have one thing to say: Bravo, Bravo, Bravo.

Sutton and Kyle are still at it. Kyle informs Sutton that she frequently loses her “sh*t in ridiculous circumstances” and that it’s because of her that the term “NAY-MUM” has gained traction online. Every instance that Kyle can think of when Sutton doesn’t seem to be okay, Sutton turns the tables on Kyle and calls her *unhinged.*

Sutton wonders aloud what is going on in Kyle’s life, clearly hinting at recent rumors about Kyle’s marriage. Kyle tells Sutton to “bring it on,” since she is happy to answer any questions. Kyle believes that Sutton is out of her mind and so she leaves her home abruptly.

Erika’s mother is coming for her yearly visit. Erika is 52 and her mom is 70, which makes their relationship interesting… Erika laments that in this new home she will have to share the bed with her mom, and this might be the only time you’ll hear Erika say she misses her old place.

Garcelle explains that her son, Jaid, doesn’t challenge her as much as Jax does. Garcelle says that she wants her sons to express themselves to her because she could never do that with her parents, but since Jax recently hurt her feelings, she is having a rough go. In other news, Garcelle has produced a movie, Black Girl Missing, and the premiere party is approaching. Jaid asks his mom which of the ladies he should avoid and which ladies his mother is on good terms with, which is a valid question considering the cast of characters invited to the event.

Rob, Crystal’s spouse, recently got back from a vacation to China. The subject of Crystal’s brother Jeff’s predicament is discussed by the pair. Jeff found it difficult to go to China because it was the first time he had seen his ex-fiance after their breakup. Jeff was living in China and engaged to his fiancée three years beforehand. Jeff was compelled by Crystal and her mother to return to the United States when the epidemic struck, but his fiancé was unable to do so. When Crystal FaceTimes Jeff and notices that he has been crying, she is overcome with shame and regret for this scenario.

Jennifer Tilly is back on our screens, and she is accompanying Sutton to her horse meet and greet. You see, “One day I was with my manicure lady, and she has a horse, and I was like, I want a horse, too.” And so, $47,000 later, Sutton gained Santos, her new horse. Sutton reminds us that she is southern and having a horse fits her background. Duh.

Sutton meets her horse for the first time on national television and deems it the best first date she has had in years. After feeding Santos a carrot, the ladies sit down for a picnic. Sutton confides in Jennfier about her recent run-in with Kyle and shares how Kyle was angry at her. Sutton believes that things aren’t adding up with Kyle: she is over-exercising, her eating is different, and she is not wearing her wedding band. Jennifer muses that perhaps Kyle is working on self-improvement, triggered by her trying to regain control of her life.
Erika and her twin, I mean, mother, are beginning to pick at each other now that they have spent more than 24 hours together. Erika claims that her mother “ambushed” her when she came to see her Broadway show in NY and further explains that things were so bad with Tom at that time, and she was trying to keep it together. At the end of the segment with her mom, Erika huffs, “Thank God this is almost over.”


It’s the night of Garcelle’s movie premiere and Kyle is getting judged HARD by Dorit for not having glam. Kyle goes on to talk to Dorit about her strange visit with Sutton while Sutton simultaneously talks with Garcelle about the meet up. Seeing Kyle’s point of view vs. Sutton’s point of view of the situation is fascinating. Sutton’s impersonation of Erika was actually spot on and Dorit calling Sutton’s behavior threatening is laughable.

Dorit is actually riding with Sutton to Garcelle’s event and you know it’s bad when Dorit complains about someone being late… if she only knew Sutton was in her house taking professional pictures. It’s called karma, Dorit.

Garcelle enters the premiere, rolling deep with about 6 15-year-olds. Kyle, as “an actor and producer myself,” appreciates how hard this in to get out into Hollywood. On the way there, Dorit finds out there will be nearly 100 people in attendance and instead of being thrilled for Garcelle, Dorit feels triggered by the crowd and laments that she is not mentally and emotionally prepared for this because of her PTSD.

Jax confides in Crystal that he’s nervous to see Erika considering Erika told him to “get the f*ck out of there” last year. When Jax decides that he will go say hi to Erika, Crytal serves as “the back up.” A bit messy, but I am here for it. Erika apologizes to him, and they clear the air. Erika calls Jax a “class act,” something that Erika will never be…considering Erika is the adult and SHE should have been the one to apologize to Jax.

Garcelle discusses the significance of her film’s subject, namely the need for the same compassion and passion for the disappearance of black and brown girls. A well-known face appears as the audience is enthralled with the movie: Denise Richards. At the conclusion, Denise surprises Dorit and Crystal and receives a standing ovation for Garcelle. Considering that Dorit hasn’t seen Denise in a long time—possibly since she left the reunion—she is shocked by this.

Sutton meanders over to Kyle and attempts to clear the air with her. Sutton claims she was being very calm, but Kyle disagrees. She believes that Sutton was “off,” which is not something a friend would normally say. Sutton is having a hard time getting through to Kyle (perhaps Kyle should take her hat off, as Sutton suggests -and thank you, Sutton, for saying what we were all thinking). She feels like there seems to be a lack of respect from Kyle, as if Sutton is her younger sister, to which Kyle retorts, younger sister- “Don’t flatter, yourself, sorry.” Sutton wonders if Kyle is mad at her about Kathy, considering Sutton is friends with Kathy, whereas Kyle is not friends with her own sister.

Dorit tells Garcelle how much she’s worked hard, and Garcelle tells her the truth. Garcelle questions why Dorit did not confront Erika when she spoke so badly to her kid in that same situation last year, and Dorit questions why their relationship appears to be going backwards and then forwards all the time. Because Garcelle would never tell Dorit that she should be over being robbed more than a year ago, Garcelle lets Dorit know that she doesn’t appreciate her belief that Garcelle should be over what happened with her son and Erika a year ago. WHOOM.

In the meantime, Kyle claims that Sutton is not a friend when she tries to bring up the rumors about her marriage. Sutton lets Kyle know that she seems “different.” It feels like Sutton is agitated that Kyle is not opening up to her about what is going on in her life, considering they are supposed to be friends. Sutton believes that Kyle should share, but it seems like Kyle is keeping quiet…for now.
