This week, we’re watching “Boys, Blades, and a Bag of Pills” to see how much housewives in Beverly Hills have spent.
Our process: We’ve been watching to see how much women are spending. To calculate, we focus on the amount spent in the episode. Clothing, cars, homes, etc. are not counted unless women make purchases on the screen every week. If the women go to dinner, we will charge the cost of any housewife credited for the footage, as in the “title” before the scene.
At the end of the episode, we will tally who passes the most things (and who leads the season).
Plan PK’s 49th birthday
The focus of this scene is that George will perform at PK’s birthday party. However, it is worth noting that Boy George is in the US because he was found guilty of some rather heinous sexual assault allegations in the UK (Google carries its own risk), so we will calculate the total cost of this as ” PK, you should be ashamed of yourself. “
Total: 10 minutes to think about what you did, Dorit
Erika and Kyle go out for dinner at Imperial
Erika and Kyle remain in Mykonos, Greece, living as such. They start with a gentle operation – for Erika – to go to dinner.
Erika ordered a margarita. Kyle received a glass of wine, and each ordered one. That’s $20 per drink and $30 per dish in, taking the total with taxes and tips of $130. There is no additional charge for full moon day. We checked.
Eileen and Lisa Rinna skate in the park
Eileen and Rinna decided to bury the vault with Dorit by going on a roller coaster. In place of an olive branch, Eileen brought a pair of inline skates to Dorit, who had never skated before. They retail for $40 online. Interestingly, the dorit model worn seems to be made only for children. Dorit, how small are your paws?
They then call Kyle and Erika. Without an international data plan, it would cost at least $10.
Eden and LVP
Eden arrives at Lisa Vanderpump’s place for a chat, and the conversation returns with Kim. Why, Eden? Why?
Erika Performing at 3 a.m.
So it turns out that Erika flew 15 of her team to Greece (confirmed this week) to perform at 3 a.m. We have 10 more people for airfares that were not included in last week’s budget. If she flies their coach – we doubt it, but give Erika Jane’s budget the benefit of the doubt – it’s an extra $1,000 per person.
She was also there to work, so we did some research to find out how much performers are paid for festivals. It varies depending on the festival and the popularity of the performer. The top estimate we can get is $75k. We’ll take it… because of how much money she spent to go, we hope that’s how much she’s paid.
Total: ($65,000) Erika, made money this week.
Rinna, Eden and Dorit
Garden of Eden
Eden pulled out three glasses of green water. $12/each and provide her guests with aloe vera in the water, to give oxygen to their blood ($10). Rinna pulled out a ziplock bag containing vitamins and prescription drugs, but since she was brought from home we didn’t count.
PK’s 49th birthday party
Dorit hosts PK a birthday party (with the unexpected appearance of a sex offender) for about 50 of their best friends… and Mario Lopez. We know that they were disappointed with the flowers, which we received because of the expensive flowers. We checked our estimates for the party.
Party Planning: $600 ($75/hour, eight hours)
Bartender: $400 (2 bartenders at $50/hour per person, 4 hours)
Bar: $1,000 (wine in flow)
Flowers: $400 (in the middle and at the entrance)
Black curtain rental: $275
Tally for episodes 6-8:
Lisa Vanderpump: $541
Lisa Rinna: $7.75
