It's Hong Kong time!!!!! A 15 hour flight and an Island Shangri-La Hotel stop later, it's time for drinks! And Erika is ready with her glam squad in tow. Fun fact: when Erika travels, not only does she take 4 squad members, but they create a lookbook before hand. This book lays out all of her "looks" so they know what to pack for her. And they hit the nail on the head when it comes to these costumes. And "costumes" is the only real way to explain these looks, because they are very themed for the location. In other words, AWE.SOME.!
Back to the trip...
Erika and Kyle bond over shopping and stories of psychics, while Rinna and Eden bond over panoramic views and talks of pills. Then they all get together to drink and bond on a junk boat. That what they call 'em in Hong Kong. This gives Dorit the chance to berate the women about telling on her regarding the "pill popper" accusation she has thrown Lisa R.'s way. Even Erika gets involved in throwing Dorit under the bus, which is extremely unusual for Erika. And she makes it abundantly clear that she is not a fan of Dorit in any way, shape or form.
Ever wonder why they have to rent a fancy boat and wear fancy clothes to yell at each other?
Eileen is actually throwing out the olive branch to Vanderpump and going to her charity event along with her and Dorit (while the other ladies shop). Mind you, this is a charity trip for Vanderpump but a girls trip for the rest of them, so it's not crazy that they would be at Chanel while Lisa V. is saving the dogs. Ok, maybe a tad crazy.
Let's talk about these dogs. Vanderpump is so passionate about animals that she has created Vanderpump Pets which is a luxury pet brand that sells anything fancy for pets you can imagine. With every purchase a percentage goes towards the Vanderpump Dog Foundation. This organization want stop help stop dog torture around the world. Her main goal is to stop the Yulin Dog Meat Festival where 10,000 dogs in Yulin are consumed. Yes, eaten. It's a tradition that started over 400 years ago and many believed that the meat would help ward off the heat of the summer months.
