Season 3 of Ladies Of London may be behind them, but Caroline Stanbury and Juliet Angus are still going strong as true blue BFFs. The ladies have been snapping pics of their joint family vacation in the French Alps, showing that time and distance are of no matter when it comes to lasting friendship. But it’s not all rosy among the entire cast – in fact, Juliet insinuates there are some women she frankly never wants to see again! Caroline, however, is working on mending her relationships with her close friends, Sophie Stanbury and Adela King, both of whom she recently reunited with in London.
Caroline also admits she didn’t come across well this season and expresses regret for some of her behavior. “It’s hard for me. Watching it back, I wasn’t my normal light, breezy self because I felt attacked. It seemed like I thought I was better than the other girls simply because I didn’t want to say something I regretted. I tried to take myself out of it as much as I could and away from them and stay away from them.”
Erika reiterated her stance on the Rinna Ridiculousness: She encouraged Rinna to stick to the facts in Mexico, and that’s basically all she could do. Lisa, whose facts seem pretty “alternative,” has a lot of digging to do to climb out of this sh*t pile she created, but Erika hints that much more will unfold this season. So, stay tuned!
I don’t know, man. Eden Sassoon may be nuttier than a five-pound fruitcake, but she’s on the right side of the truth when it comes to Lisa Rinna’s latest accusations and deflections. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills newest addition claims that Rinna is suffering from “selective memory,” and she’s here to set the record straight.
But first, Eden takes a moment to praise her mom for talking her off the ledge. “Let’s start this blog post with the beautiful part of this episode…my mama. She is such a strong, beautiful woman, who so easily brings me back down to earth. It wasn’t always that way; we have worked really hard on our relationship. But now that we have such a strong friendship, I look to her for advice when I am overwhelmed, which I totally am at this moment.”
After arriving in Mexico at Mauricio and Kyle Richards’ vay-cay pad, Eileen abruptly got the sh*ts. But that didn’t stop her from playing fierce ally to Rinna, who was called out for her lies comments that were caught on camera. Eileen reflects, “Pardon the understatement of the year, but this is a very complicated situation! Watching the show the last couple weeks, Lisa Rinna’s comments about Kim Richards to Eden have been played many times. So much has been said about it. But, here’s the context I think we’re missing.”
Teresa has paid in full the $414,581 restitution fine she and husband Joe Giudice were slapped with in their 2014 court case, which found both Giudices guilty of tax fraud. Since that time, Teresa’s wages have been garnished to pay the sum. One can assume that those wages have largely come from Bravo – or from Teresa’s memoir about life behind bars, Turning The Tables, From Housewife To Inmate And Back Again, which inexplicablybecame a NY Times bestseller last year.
When Eden Sassoon rolled the dice by confessing secrets to Lisa Vanderpump this week on The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, she won big. At least, that is how she sees it. After sharing information that Lisa Rinna had given her about Kim Richards being “mostly sober” and “this close to dying,” Eden feels like the group may understand her meddling a bit better now. (But, let’s get real: It was still intrusive and creepy as hell!)
Eden explains, “It was very important that I had that lunch with Vanderpump. She told me straight up that I should not mess with her friend Kyle [Richards]. I respected that and her so much! I didn’t have a chance to tell anyone about what Lisa Rinna had told me. Well maybe it was that I didn’t want to make the situation worse for Rinna, because I didn’t want to be gossiping about my ‘friend.’ But when I saw what Rinna was doing to me, you know, pretending like she didn’t tell me that ‘Kim is near death,’ not defending me in any situation with Kyle and Kim, and acting like I was obsessed with Kim’s sobriety, I had to speak the #TRUTH.”
Sniff, sniff. Waving our hankies at Ladies Of London as it recedes on a slow tide of broken friendships, dusty castles, and tear-stained titles is all we can do now. Season three left us with more questions than answers. Like, is Caroline Stanbury okay with Sophie Stanbury and Adela King these days? (Answer: yes, according to recent Instagram posts.) Will Julie Montagu be able to stop vibrating long enough to save Mapperton, one Made In China tchotchke at a time? Can Juliet Angus possibly survive in London, sans Caroline S handing her marching orders?
And more to the point, will Marissa Hermer’s balls-to-the-wall press junket this week work in securing her a future spot on The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills? Or at least a meeting with Lisa Vanderpump about hubby Matt Hermer’s alleged plans to open a club in West Hollywood? (Because if that sh*t ain’t transparent, I don’t know what is.) Alas, one final, painful question remains: Will Bravo cancel Ladies Of London now that two of its cast members are, well, not in London anymore? Although Marissa and Caroline S likely plan on spending summers back in the UK, that might not be reason enough to keep filming. Maybe a cast shakeup will come our way. But I refuse to accept a dire outcome yet. So, chin up, good people! For now, we must keep calm and snark on! Because this finale was a doozie.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills may be a modern day soap opera, but Eileen Davidson is still kicking it old school as her long-running alter-ego of Ashley Abbott on The Young & The Restless. So, when Eileen gifted Erika Girardi a chance to appear on Y&R this year, she was both excited and nervous about how Erika would fare in a scripted capacity.
The verdict? Eileen loved it! She loved Erika’s performance so much, in fact, that she’s urging Y&R writers to get Erika more material. She says, “After I saw [the episode] air, I was on the phone, ‘Come on you guys, write her something again. It would be so much fun.'”
