‘RHOBH’ Reunion Part 3 Recap: Erika Jayne Accuses Kathy Hilton Of Using Homophobic Slur
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 12 reunion ends on October 26 with Kathy Hilton and Lisa Rinna reunited for the first time since Kathy’s alleged “Aspen crisis”. Kathy previously apologized to her sister Kyle Richards for badmouthing her during the trip, but Kathy and Lisa still haven’t resolved their feud, so there’s going to be a lot of drama in this week’s episode. And it all started when Andy Cohen trying to figure out why Kathy lost her temper in Aspen.
Apparently it started when Lisa gave the order Kendall Jenner818 tequila instead of the brand Kathy invested in, Casa Del Sol. But Kathy says she regrets how she handled the situation – she even tried to say she wasn’t too upset about it, even though the footage suggests otherwise – and Lisa has since apologized. “I’m a big fan of Kathy’s tequila,” Lisa said, admitting that she tasted the wine a few times on the show. “So the way it went, I’m sorry if it hurt Kathy’s feelings. It was never my intention to do that.”

Things then escalate when the group arrives at Aspen’s Caribou Club. And during the reunion, Kathy revealed what’s really baffling her. “I’m thinking, ‘Okay, I want everyone to have fun.’ I went to the DJ, he had headphones on, he was looking down. He didn’t see me, so I felt frustrated.” She said she then went up to the manager and said, “If I gave you some money, would you order some songs for us, my friends and me, to dance?” He said, ‘No, no. Too busy here. Not tonight.'”
After she repeated her request, she said the manager looked really “nasty” to her. “He looked at me and said, ‘Where are you from?’,” she recalls. “I said LA He’s gone,” Then back to LA “So I go,” Let’s get out of here. “
Kyle tells the group that’s when Kathy confronts her and asks them all to leave the venue immediately. But because of the way Kathy talks to her, she doesn’t want to go.
“Kathy, that’s how you tell me,” Kyle explained at the reunion. “You didn’t say, ‘This guy just hurt my feelings, I’m so embarrassed.’ You say, ‘We’re out of here.’ Everyone has seen. You look at me like you’re about to leave right now… I’m an adult, you can’t talk to me like that. “

But that’s not all. Erika Jayne then jumped into the conversation and accused Kathy of using a gay profanity at the club. “I found Kathy coming off the dance floor very upset,” she said. “I said, ‘Kathy, what’s wrong?’ She said, ‘The DJ is an old man,’ and walked away. That’s what happened.”
However, Kathy denied the gay use of profanity. “I’ll admit what I do, but I won’t be painted to be this monster,” she said, before adding that she “never” used the word. “No one else heard that,” Kathy continued, and Erika replied, “No, you said it directly to me.”
So is she telling the truth? Andy revealed that there was an investigation by Bravo’s human resources department, and in the end, “she said, she said so,” he explained. “It’s inconclusive.”
And then when it comes to Lisa’s “disruptive” allegations, Kathy denies those too. She said that she has never called her co-stars “stupid”, “useless” and “useless stuff”. She even tried saying that a message she sent Lisa – the same text that Lisa posted on IG – never existed. She basically deleted it and tried saying that Lisa tampered with the text, but when Andy looked at Lisa’s phone, the text was still there. (Fascinating failure, Kathy.)
Kathy then accused Lisa of confronting her on camera to save her job on the show. “You did it on camera because your contract was about to be signed and you needed some drama because you fought everyone. Did you drive? Lisa Vanderpump out of the show, what you did to my sister [Kim Richards], you’ve got problems with everyone. With Camille Grammer, I mean the list can go on and on. And then say you were bullied? You are the biggest bully in Hollywood and everyone knows it. You’re mean and you don’t tell the truth,” Kathy told Lisa.
When Andy asked Lisa what she would do to get over the “fever”, she said she would continue for Kyle’s sake. “I let it pass right here and now,” Lisa told the group. “I will forgive myself from it from this day on. I assure you of that. And I just wish you the best, I really do.”

In tears, Kyle said, “I find it very difficult in the midst of this situation. Apparently my sister’s sister. My feelings were very hurt. I feel like I’m always blamed for family matters like the Kemo Sabe incident. I didn’t do anything and then when this whole thing happened it just made it worse and set us back. I’m the only one who’s hurt, I’m the one who gets hurt.”
Kyle added that she wanted to “end up in a better place than here with [Kathy] compared to when she arrived,” but Kathy wasn’t very interested in creating things right in that moment. “I don’t want to talk about it,” she said.
When Kyle asked Kathy to tell her why she was so upset, Kathy told Kyle, “Because you’re acting like a dead man for you alone and that’s not fair to you. I.”
Finally, upon leaving the set, Kathy called the reunion a “nightmare”, while Kyle continued to cry on the couch. “I really can’t sit here right now. I can’t make a fake toast,” Kyle says at the end of the episode.
