‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Season 2 Episode 20 Review (Finale): The Real Wedding of Beverly Hills
It is the Season two finale of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and you know what that means… Pandora and Justin’s wedding day has arrived! What a magnificent wedding this was and even more spectacular drama free finale. Let the celebration begin!
Lisa and Ken Vanderpump displaying their love for Pandora on national television was so wonderful to see, but something tells me that these two would have done anything for all of the world to see. Lisa’s love for her daughter is one of the most beautiful things we will ever see on any Housewives series. From Lisa talking about how beautiful Pandora looked in her wedding dress as she walked down the staircase to talk of giving anything to turn back the clock 25 years and do it all over again… Lisa’s words brought on the tears before the wedding even began. Say what you want about Lisa outside of her home but at home, she has created such a wonderful family and relationship with her daughter. Seeing the beauty in that made this episode what it was. Unforgettable for all of the right reasons. Extravagance aside,Lisa’s love for her family knows no bounds and in a society where there are so many broken homes and damaged relationship between parents and children, the Vanderpump family is such a fine example of what is out there and possible.
Three weeks after the wedding, the housewives (minus Kim) took time out to meet up with Taylor and have a ladies night as they have been nonexistent since Russell’s death. With the hour-long broadcast coming to an end, there was not much to expect here with the small time frame left. If you were hoping for a lengthy retrospective from Taylor, well, this was not the platform. She’s saving that for the books. But Lisa did take some of the evening’s time to show off a handful of mesmerizing wedding photographs.
In the final update we learn that Kim is indeed not pregnant (hooray for dodging that bullet with her controlling and emotionally abusive ex-boyfriend) and checked herself into rehab this past December. There was no update as to whether or not either sister thanked Brandi Glanville for not being yet another individual to ignore Kim’s issue here. In a town full of so much denial and false appearances, it is important to have people who will keep you in check and Brandi is one of the people the ladies can always depend on when it comes to brutal honesty. Kim and Kyle obviously were not ready to accept this truth early on in the season but a thank you should be said because honesty is something that is often taken for granted, especially in Beverly Hills. In the final update, we also learn that
Taylor Armstrong is publishing memoirs in the face of financial issues and Camille Grammer’s new relationship with her beau is going strong. Money wise, it would not be surprising to see Armstrong back for season three. But it is up to her to decide if the decision to continue on in reality television is best for he family at this time. This season was largely about Taylor coming face to face with her pain and next season could have a widely positive spin for her. All of that said, she really needs to sit down and think about what her next best move is for the long run. Let’s all hope that no matter what happens, we have seen the last of her friend, Dana. She means well but is terribly annoying.
This season was emotionally draining, far different from season one due to the event that set the tone for this season. Because of that, it was wonderful to be able to go out on such a positive note. There is still the reunion show to catch before this season is officially over, but a wedding is a sign of so many good things to come and ending on that note only makes us anticipate what good can come out of the reunion show and season three. So stay tuned.
