Brandi Glanville makes a unique, "generous" and nasty offer to Lisa Vanderpump in the new episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” Season 5 Episode 7 “Breaking Branches,” which aired last Dec. 30, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. on Bravo. In this episode, Lisa surprises the housewives in Brandi’s housewarming party, ice buckets are dumped on two housewives’ heads, Brandi ruins Lisa’s olive tree and Lisa feels a lesbian vibe from Brandi.
Kyle is preparing to go out and pick up Lisa Rinna. While doing her makeup, her daughter Portia is confused which Lisa was she talking about. Kyle is hoping Lisa Vanderpump will find it in her heart to attend Brandi’s housewarming party. She asks her daughter for any fashion advice regarding her dress, but Portia asks her instead if who is better — Lisa Rinna or “Lisa V.” Kyle just laughs. Portia likes Rinna more.
During the housewarming party, all the housewives think Brandi is successful despite being a single mother. They also commend her effort and dedication in everything she does. They also like her new luxurious house. However, Lisa Vanderpump is missing. Brandi thinks she will not arrive.
However, Lisa and Ken are entering Brandi’s house. The housewives are surprised when they saw her, especially Brandi. Brandi kisses her, but Lisa complains that she is also pinching her. Yolanda and Kyle think Lisa is already moving on from their conflict. Although Brandi is happy to see Lisa, she is confused why Lisa came after declining her invitation more than once.
TV host Leeza Gibbons comes up to catch up with Lisa and Brandi. Leeza asks if Lisa changed her mind about coming to the party. Brandi answers that Lisa loves her. Lisa disagrees. However, Brandi keeps on insisting that Lisa loves her.
As time passes, Lisa talks with Brandi and her parents. Lisa is having a fun time with the parents as they talk about Brandi. Brandi tells them she is “sensitive and temperamental.” She still hears innuendos about her that she excuses herself and leaves. Lisa tells them she does not want to say anything bad about their daughter. Brandi’s parents admit about their daughter’s flaws that hurt Lisa in any way.
Another “frenemy” of Brandi, Adrienne, arrives as well. Brandi thinks Adrienne’s “boy toy” is cute. She admits she also has a thing for younger men. She believes that is the only thing she has in common with Adrienne.
Meanwhile, Lisa talks with Yolanda and Eileen about helping the young women in foster care. She asks if they can donate a couple of things from their closet, especially dresses. People from foster care are very dear to her because his son Max is also a foster child. However, she remembers her charity event in the past when Brandi threw a tantrum. She believes she can tolerate Brandi’s hysteria if she can donate some things.
Before Lisa and Ken go home, they say their goodbyes. After kissing, Brandi tells Lisa why she is holding her head back. She insists on kissing again in a more natural way. When she touched Lisa’s butt, Lisa becomes irritated. Brandi comes to Ken to say goodbye, but she tells him that he does not make eye contact.
After the Vanderpump couple went home, Kyle asks Brandi if how was her time with Lisa. Brandi can still feel the couple’s distance from her, but she does not care anymore because she is happy with her life.
The next day, Rinna arrives in the studio to be a co-host on “Access Hollywood.” She thinks it is important to stay relevant if she wants to stay in her career.
Meanwhile, Eileen is going to have her workout in a beach. However, she admits that she prefers eating a doughnut. A wave suddenly hits her after paddling on the water.
Back on “Access Hollywood,” Rinna is nominated to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. After dumping the icy water on her head, she jumps and screams excitedly.
In Kyle’s house, the parents are proud with Portia who is making her own sandwich. Kyle tells Alexia that she will teach her how to cook and do laundry before leaving for college. Mauricio is surprised that Alexia does not know how to do laundry. Kyle asks him if he knows how. He insists he knows how to wash his clothes. Kyle does not believe him because she thinks he does not do anything in the house.
Lisa is having her charity event for the foster care girls. The dresses are displayed neatly near the tea party. Rinna and Eileen arrive with their donations. Eileen commends Lisa’s sense of style in the decorations, which is very “Beverly Hills.”
Yolanda arrives next. She is very amazed with PUMP’s layout and decorations. Lisa is surprised that Yolanda has not seen her restaurant yet. Yolanda tells her that she was not invited in its opening day. She thinks friends must always be present during important events.
Kyle and Brandi are the next ones to arrive. After Brandi thanked Lisa for attending her housewarming party, Lisa suddenly stares at her face. Brandi does not know why Lisa makes her nervous so much. Kim arrives last.
While the party continues, Brandi suddenly offers Lisa a small twig from the olive tree and says it is a branch. Lisa tells her that she will have to chop the tree to give her a real branch. Brandi extends her arm and easily snaps a big branch. Kyle is horrified that it will make their conflict worse. Lisa is speechless for several minutes. She wants to tie Brandi on the tree and leave her hanging. She grabs the branch and whips Brandi’s butt with it.
Rinna shares to the women her ice bucket challenge experience. Yolanda says her bestfriend had ALS. She volunteers herself for the challenge immediately. She takes off her blazer and lets Lisa dump an ice bucket on her head.
After the housewives split into groups, Brandi asks Lisa playfully if she wants to have lunch with her tomorrow. She still insists that Lisa loves her. Lisa says she will think about it. She changes the topic by reminding her to not pull off any more branches.
“You want me to eat your pussy?” Brandi asks randomly and laughs.
Lisa asks her if that is the reason why she was invited for lunch. Brandi says it was her way to break the ice. Lisa sarcastically thanks her for the offer and walks out after saying she will call her tomorrow. She goes to the other housewives and says she wants to serve them. The ladies are quite surprised. She says Brandi made her day by making a “beautiful offer” of “eating” her private part. Some housewives are howling; some are speechless. Rinna explains that the sexual act Brandi said is also called cunnilingus. Yolanda is amazed with the word. She thinks it sounds Chinese. Eileen finds it funny because the table decorations are so elegant, yet they talk about a nasty topic. Lisa did not expect to have fun with the ladies during the charity event. She finally accepts Brandi’s invitation for lunch tomorrow.
The housewives say goodbye to Lisa and proceed to another restaurant to drink. Eileen cannot understand why things were so awkward between Lisa and Brandi. Brandi shares the backstory of their conflict, which is the mistress of her ex-husband was Lisa’s best friend. It is Eileen and Rinna’s first time to hear the story, so they had a lengthy reaction.
Yolanda admits she was hurt when Lisa did not invite her to the Palm Springs event. Other ladies have the same sentiments. Rinna cannot relate because Lisa has been good to her ever since. However, they are optimistic that the invitation from Lisa for her charity event is a progress. Eileen does not want to judge Lisa because she has no bad experience with her yet. However, she starts bracing herself.
