Perhaps a move like appearing on "Good Day LA" (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox) to discuss how she felt ambushed in Part 1 of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion" was what Kyle Richards was referring to when she said being friends with Lisa Vanderpump is "like playing chess with Bobby Fischer." Or maybe she was just defending herself from a barrage of attacks.
Nevertheless, Vanderpump speculated that the dynamic on display at the reunion may have emerged because she was "out of the loop," busy planning her daughter's wedding and opening a new restaurant, while the other ladies were getting on the same page. When Steve Edwards joked that the other Housewives had "ganged up and planned" a bad day for Vanderpump, she not only agreed, but also elaborated on the conspiracy theory. "Adrienne did say to Brandi, 'Oh, let's meet the night before,' and Brandi declined. I know that for a fact," she claimed.
But facts can be fuzzy in the world of the "Housewives." Dorothy Lucey asked Vanderpump about an argument she had with Adrienne Maloof during the reunion in which Maloof claimed that Vanderpump was selling gossip stories to Radar Online. Radar has since denied ever paying Vanderpump for "Housewives" scoops.
Naturally, this led to a discussion of Maloof and Vanderpump's dueling shoe-lines, which has been dubbed "The Vander Pump" vs. "The Maloof Hoof." Vanderpump swore it was joke when she nicknamed Adrienne's shoe "The Maloof Hoof." "It wasn't meant in a mean-spirited way," Vanderpump insisted, just as she did in Part 1, right before she called it "a fat little shoe."
Part 2 of the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion" airs Monday at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
