Ball-Gag Gag, and Unwanted Straddling

The R
eal Housewives of Beverly Hills – Season 8, Episode 12, Gag Gift

Kyle and Erika lunch. Kyle’s show, “Glass Houses” was just bought by ABC, and Erika congratulates her. Erika asks about her and Lisa.  Kyle says that she, and Vanderpump are in a good place now.  Erika wonders how this drama got so blown our of proportion.  They discuss what to get Lisa as a birthday present.  Kyle thinks a pink bird might work.  They both know Lisa expects really good presents, since she has everything she wants.

At Camille’s charity event for the Foundation For Womens Cancer, Dorit tries to cozy up to Vanderpump. Lisa wants to have some space for now.  Lisa thinks of Dorit as a friend, she just wonders what kind of friend is Dorit.
For absolutely no reason, Dorit goes after Teddi about her telling Kyle about what Dorit said about the Vanderpump leaving dinner situation.  Teddi repeats she didn’t like what she said, and does not regret telling Kyle about it.
Dorit and Erika walk away to the bar. Erika does not think Dorit knows how to fight.  For one thing, don’t walk away after starting one. Dorit talks to Erika, and Erika looks like she wants to be anywhere on the planet except that bar.
Camille makes a speech, about her own experience with cancer, and her mother’s experience with cancer. Afterward, Camille joins the women at the table, and Vanderpump runs off to have a birthday dinner with Ken.  Dorit chases after her, and Lisa tells her she is being over dramatic.  Dorit says she just wants them to be good, and Lisa says she is a little bit hurt, but they are ok.  Lisa also tells Dorit that Teddi has nothing to do with their situation, and she does not deserve any of what just happened.  Dorit climbs on top of Lisa, and Lisa asks her to “gtf” off her. Dorit explains she needs to apologize to Lisa and be good with her again.  Lisa walks off to her birthday dinner and tells Dorit that Dorit may love her, but not enough.
Dorit actually tells us that “forcing” herself on Vanderpump is the way to go about mending their friendship.  Dorit, don’t straddle your friends, and don’t physically force yourself on anyone.  Be happy Vanderpump did not kick you in the crotch, as a reflex, too.

Erika has developed a character in the Kim Kardashian game.  The character one plays in the game starts off arriving in LA with nothing, and Erika completely relates to that.  She loves the look of the game version of herself. I would rather Erika make her own game, but for now, she is still a character in a game.

It is Lisa Vanderpump’s birthday party, and event planner and friend Kevin Lee is on the case, making sure everything is perfect.  Lisa reveals her outfit and hair, and Kevin loves it.
As a joke bout the wineglass/champagne glass nonsense, Lisa tells Kevin to serve Dorit her drink in a green juice glass from her cupboard.
Teddi is the first to arrive to the party, and Lisa tells her how Dorit’s drink will be served tonight.
Dorit yells about having to drink rose out of a juice glass, but she gets the joke.
Lisa gives a toast, and then opens her gifts.  Teddi has given Lisa a furry, pink saddle cover, and Lisa is thrilled.
Camille gives Lisa a cute lingerie headpiece, with bunny ears, and a lace veil. She then gives Dorit a gag harness, and tells us in confessional, that Dorit needs to shut up sometimes.
Everyone sits at the table, and Lisa calls Teddi, Teddi Bear.  Kyle arrives late, and is cannot believe that Camille gave Dorit a ball gag.  Dorit does not appreciate this gift, and Erika cannot believe that Dorit is reacting like this, and cannot laugh at this. PK tells Dorit that they will just talk about this at home. Kyle is almost gleeful telling us in confessional that Dorit is finally seeing the other side of Lisa, and it is not fun to be the focus of her digs.
Lisa invites everyone to celebrate that night at Pump.  Dorit announces to everyone, that  she will not be attending, and has decided she has celebrated enough.  She tells us in confessional that she does not feel like that the punishment fit the crime, and she can only be poked at so long before she has had enough.  Dorit leaves before the cake is served.  Lisa goes after her, and Dorit icily tells Vanderpump that she is alright.

What did we learn this weekend-  Don’t physically force yourself on people, or straddle people, especially if you are trying to mend a friendship.  It is so easy to not do this.

I feel like either Dorit does not know how to have adult friendships, or the producers are telling her to do these outrageous things.  I really hope it is the latter.  Is it worth it to go through all of this for a friendship like the one she has with Vanderpump, especially if she is sensitive about being poked at? We shall see.

  1. Camille should have officially been part of the cast this season.

    I am enjoying her constantly dissing Dorit this season, too…there is so much material there. I do not like how Dorit just went after Teddi, demanding that she hold herself accountable. Then, when Camille gave Dorit the gag gift, Dorit had a tantrum, because she can’t hold herself accountable for what she said to Camille. I hope this is Dorit’s last season.
