“The culture shock of seeing the outfits these women wear and the heels they hobble around in and the extensions they maneuver around shoulders bonier than Dover Sole filets is taking me a beat to get used to. It’s the STYLE of these ladies that makes me feel like Sir Richard Attenborough narrating a nature film. “The perimenopausal Housewife shows her mate a shoulder in a bright asymmetrical top, in order to flaunt her litheness after her fertility has wavered.” WHO WEARS THIS SHIT? It looks so bad and costs so much!”
I’ll be recapping Real Housewives of Beverly Hills again for Vulture.

There are those, like Kim, who are destined to have lived their best lives before 20, or 30, or 40. And, though there are not many, there are stars like Whitney Houston, who burned bright and then became unsavable, whether DNA was to blame or bad company, or because being a celebrity — a larger-than-life, better-than-you, chosen-by-God beauty with a voice like a beacon or expressive anime eyes, or long, shiny hair straight out of an O’Henry short story — makes it harder to bow your head and accept a higher power. To realize that it is our ordinariness, our fallibility, that makes us healable — from addiction, from pain, from loss, from darkness — from the bleakness of being alone all the time, knowing you hate your own company.
My last RHOBH recap of the season is now up.
