The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Recap: Bunnygate

On The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 7 Episode 20, part two of this season’s reunion unfolded with more drama than ever.

Who had a target on their back this week, and why?

If you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online, you know no one has been more embattled for seven years than Kim Richards.

Well, last night, the former full-time cast member made an appearance and she fired back – to quote Kim’s one-time boyfriend – Bigly.

Seriously. She did not come to f–k around here.

It turns out that returning Lisa Rinna’s gift of a stuffed bunny meant for her grandson, as teased in the promos, was just a sneak peek.

Kim just savaged Rinna, but only after insisting that her former co-star has a big heart and stating, “I think there’s big hopes for us.”

After Bunnygate, one can hardly be sure.

Of course, Andy Cohen played a role in this whole thing, opening the door to the drama by reading a viewer question about said gift.

Kim had the rabbit ready to go behind the couch, though, either with psychic-level powers or having been tipped-off about the question.

Without a doubt, Richards’ goal was to rankle Rinna and it was achieved, as the latter was left reeling from their contentious exchanges.

Eileen Davidson, however, was not.

“What do you think returning the bunny at the reunion means?” Eileen said, calling out Richards’ charade for what it was – a charade.

“Send it back in the mail,” she scolded.

To quote the song, Come On, Eileen.

As the star of one of the most popular daytime dramas ever, you know you gotta find new ways of keep it interesting for the viewers!

For her part, Kim’s sister Kyle Richards looked about as awkward and uncomfortable watching this play out as we’ve ever seen her.

In that respect, Kylie put the “real” in reality TV last night, and Kim ultimately revealed why exactly she came out swinging at Rinna.

“It’s good that you feel bad for a minute because you hurt me,” she said, and whatever you think of her methods, at least she’s honest.

Payback’s a bitch, right?

Rinna, lest we forget, basically told Eden Sassoon that Kim was on the brink of death, then lied and tried to pretend she couldn’t recall this.

So yeah. That was less than cool.

Say what you will about Kim, and there are lots of fair and unflattering things you can pick from, but Lisa is no hapless, innocent victim.

Whose side are you on and where do the women go from here? What will happen in part three of the reunion next week on Bravo?

No bunny can say for sure right now, so all we can do is stay tuned when the seventh season returns for its final installment on Tuesday.

(Sorry.)
