Tonight marks the first episode of the three-part Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion and apparently the subject for tonight’s bitch-fest is how much everyone hates resident fan favorite Lisa Vanderfabulous!
Viewers will see Adrienne Maloof (whose chef Bernie recently went for Lisa’s jugular in a Facebook rant) “attack” her former neighbor in a high-dollar, be-Botoxed form of turf wars! “Adrienne has it out for Lisa,” an insider reveals to OK!. “Adrienne just wants to be number one,” and she is allegedly willing to do anything to oust LVP from her position atop the RHOBH throne!
“Adrienne called all the girls together, they planned to go after her,” the source explains, adding that Adrienne’s jealousy is the reason for her malice. “Adrienne is going to open a restaurant, just like Lisa. She also got a little dog like Lisa and named it Jackpot and opened a twitter account for the dog, just like Lisa.”
Opting out of the verbal lashing were true friends Brandi Glanville and Camille Grammer. You mean Taylor Armstrong, current bestie of Lees turned on her!? You don’t say… Perhaps as a last-ditch attempt to prove her relevance to Bravo she piled on!
So what is prompting Adrienne’s venomous attitude towards her former friend? I mean, this can’t all be because of a Maloof Hoof comment and a Bachelorette Party not held at The Palms! Perhaps next season’s storyline! “So far Lisa, Kyle [Richards] and Adrienne have all been renewed by Bravo,” the insider revealed to OK!.
Lisa has hinted at the animosity from Adrienne in a recent appearance on WWHL and admitted she was glad to have new neighbors! In a recent sit-down with NBCUniversal Direct, Lisa discussed her feelings on the reunion. “I find it really difficult. It’s quite hard when you go through a show and you’re kind of in your own world, which I was very much, I was having fun and working really hard… But, when you see things aired and you see things being said, it’s kind of upsetting. So, I felt I was in defense mode for a lot of it.”
Kyle, who apparently spent the reunion throwing her former friend under the bus, also cops to having trouble dealing with the aftermath. “It’s really like mental torture sitting there with all the women,” Kyle described.
“We’ve put our arguments to rest a few months ago and then, all of a sudden, to rehash everything is very painful. If you’re very honest, and people are highly sensitive, it leads to an argument again.” And that, my friends, is why you don’t go on a reality show with your friends! If there is one thing that guarantees a friendship to fall apart it’s participating in a show that requires you to talk crap about your friends to the viewing public.
Also on the reunion, Kim Richards will be making a cameo via an interview with Andy Cohen to give some insight into what led her to enter rehab. During the sit-down, Kim informs fans that she is an “alcoholic.” Per the usual, discussing her sister’s situation is Kyle, who shares some feelings behind Kim’s decision to get help. “It wasn’t about the Housewives,” Kyle tells Good Morning America. “I think it was just an accumulation of things.”
“It was our family and sitting down, and she really felt it was time,” Kyle explains. “I have to give her credit for making that decision on her own.” Kyle is relieved that Kim was able to admit to fans and to Bravo about her addictions by declaring she is an alcoholic. “I’m proud to hear her say that,” Kyle said. “I’m proud of her. I know that’s the biggest step in recovery, to admit that.”
And Kim’s family is very happy she sought help. “We were always proud when one of us achieved something so, right now, for Kathy, Kim and me, we’re all just very happy and proud of her,” Kyle relayed.
“There were things going on that the audience wasn’t aware of,” Kyle said of the excoriating arguments viewers have witnessed between the sisters. “I had had a lot of pain and built up anger and frustration towards her, and obviously she did towards me too. It was a vicious cycle.”
To help Kim continue with her path to recovery, Kyle advised her sister against watching footage from this season. “I told her [Kim], ‘I don’t know if you want to watch the show all the time,’ because I don’t want her to look back and beat herself up. I really want her just to stay positive and move forward.”
“It was very difficult to have people dissect and analyze your relationship thinking they know you from a TV show when it’s been a long time in the making,” Kyle confesses, but the sisters are working towards a more positive relationship.
“I don’t think you can love anyone like a sister or fight with anyone like a sister,” Kyle added. “My sisters – Kathy [Hilton], Kim and myself – we’re all very close.”
Also, refuting rumors that she is definitely on board for a third season of the tumultuous show, Kyle again claims she “absolutely” regrets signing on and isn’t sure if she wants to return. Kim is also allegedly uncertain if she wants to come back — or if Bravo even wants her! Perhaps with Kyle’s life-based sitcom in the works she doesn’t need reality TV to chronicle her every move!
Finally, tonight marks the first part of the epic reunion which will cover suicide, domestic abuse and the other run of the mill Housewives problems, including bitchery, backstabbing as well as she-said/she-said nonsense. A preview clip is below!
