The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 Recap: Yolanda’s Biggest Vacation Surprise

Get intrigued with Yolanda’s biggest surprise of the season yet in the new episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” Season 5 Episode 4 “Livin La Vida Housewife,” which aired last Dec. 9, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. on Bravo. In this episode, Kyle’s family is mesmerized with the beauty of Spain, Brandi buys something extravagantly new, the two Lisas have fun shopping for a prestigious event and Yolanda’s vacation suddenly turns into a nightmare.

The episode kicks off with Kyle visiting Kim in her house. Kim presents her daughter’s $9,600 wedding dress. She tries on her laced silver dress, which Kyle finds as a real mother-of-the-bride outfit.


Brandi meets with Norm, the CEO of PodcastOne. Norm thinks Brandi’s podcast show entitled “Brandi Glanville Unfiltered” limits them with advertisers because of its explicit content. He plans on toning it down to make it family friendly and attract bigger brand advertisers. Brandi, even though she thinks her show is not that explicit, is willing and ready to change for her to grow and make money. She is confident that she can filter herself.

When Kyle’s family arrives in Spain, they head directly to Champagne O’Clock London, a luxury yacht. They will stay there for a week on the Mediterranean Sea. Yolanda is going with them, so she reserves a room for her. Kyle remembers her past conflict with Yolanda, but they are very much okay now.

While Kyle and her daughters are resting on the deck, Yolanda greets them. Kyle is aware that Yolanda just came from a trip with her husband and was riding a huge yacht, so she hopes Yolanda will appreciate the size of their yacht.

Kyle and Yolanda ride on “bagels” speeding on the water. Both have so much fun. Kyle thinks she peed on her bagel because of the fast speed and laughs.

In the Villa Blanca restaurant, Lisa Vanderpump and Lisa Rinna meet. Rinna finds Lisa a “British hustler,” so she gets along great with her. Both of them love to work.

Rinna shares she is alone because her kids are with their father in Canada. She feels like a single woman. Lisa likes Rinna for she is different than her other friends. She wants to get pass her conflict with the other girls since she never lives badmouthing anybody.

Rinna asks Lisa if it is true that she will receive an award in Palm Springs. Lisa confirms she will receive a star for the Walk of Stars. It is because of her career success and intense support for the LGBT community. She invites Rinna to come with her. Rinna likes the idea so much.

Kyle and Yolanda tour around Mallorca, Spain. Since Yolanda is from Europe, she knows a lot about Spain. Kyle is happy about Yolanda being with her because it is like having a beautiful personal tourist guide.

In a restaurant, Yolanda cries remembering her mother surviving breast cancer and now suffering from uterus cancer. Losing her father in an accident when she was just seven years old makes it harder for her to think that her mother is suffering.


Brandi decides to buy a new car because she just got an unexpected six-figure check from her first book. She is excited to see her car outside brought by car brokers. The shiny white car has tinged windows and huge wheels. She cannot wait to get her kids from her ex-husband’s house in her new car.

While Yolanda and Kyle are resting on top of the yacht, they suddenly reminisce when they see Alexia. Kyle slowly starts to cry when she remembers Alexia is going to leave the family to go to college. She finds it difficult how time flies by so fast.

Lisa and Rinna shop at Boulmiche to find the perfect dress for the event. Lisa jokes about just wearing a thong because of the expected hot weather. Rinna finds Lisa’s humor so “wicked.” They have a lot of fun while trying on some dresses.

Everyone is having a nice time eating on the yacht’s deck when somebody calls Yolanda unexpectedly. From the sound of her husband’s voice, she knows it is bad news. She goes to her room and finds out her daughter Bella is arrested for DUI.

“I thought the last thing that would happen would be for Bella to have a drink and get in a car,” Yolanda cries.
