Someone at the Real Housewives Of New York emporium got a little too liberal with the Sex And The City DVDs this season. I’ve been missing my vintage Carrie Bradshaw as much as the next former 20-something girl of a certain millennium, but do we really need to re-live her life starring Carole Radziwill in My So-Called Reality Show? (Another gem of my generation).
While Carole is busy cosplaying Carrie, the other girls are busy being Housewives and starting high velocity fights over wrangled pretenses and loose indignations. Carole is riding bikes in heels around NYC, dating a boy who doesn’t wanna grow up, experimenting with drugs, getting munchies for KFC, losing her virginity <insert emoji here>, and rocking those Jordache jeans she saved all her babysitting money to buy. Life is good when mercury is in retrograde.
Calling Housewives “cattier” than models, Kristen hasn’t always been sure how to handle the outrageous drama. Like the time Ramona flung a wine glass at her last season. “The whole thing was insane. I don’t want to say dreaming because it definitely wasn’t a dream it was more of a nightmare,” Kristen reflects. “People still comment with me on that because people say that would have done this to her and that to her but I was treading water in a lake. Once I tasted the blood I was like I’m staying far away from her.”
First of all, Kim sounds … off in the beginning; slurry and inarticulate with a glazed expression in her eyes as if she’s reciting from a teleprompter. I don’t think she was – I think it was rehearsed and she was desperate to stay “on message” of denial.
In classic Kim fashion, she was hours late for her sit-down with Dr. Phil leaving him waiting for the interview to start while she fussed over her appearance. Kim denies procrastinating and insists she was ready the whole time, apologizes insincerely. More classic Kim. Dr. Phil is prepared for Kim’s “controlling” behaviors and calls her out throughout the entire segment.
Yolanda Foster continues to fight a disheartening battle against Lyme Disease all while trying to raise awareness about Chronic Lyme, which affects those long after doctors say they are cured. However, recently Yolanda may have taken a turn for the worse!
Seeking out alternative medicines and traveling the globe for treatments, Yolanda unfortunately does not seem to be getting better as she battles a particularly nasty bout of Chronic Neurological Lyme Disease. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star recently shared a photo of her son Anwar carrying her in support. (Above)
Speaking out about Kim’s state of mind during the interview, Dr. Phil admits he’s concerned about her overall health and stability. The interview left no turn unturned as Kim was confronted about her toxic friendship to Brandi Glanville, whether or not reality TV is healthy for her, her relationship with Kyle Richards, and her constant denial about her own behavior – including blaming the police, the Beverly Hills Hotel, and RHOBH for her arrest!
Dr. Phil shares that Kim got “frustrated” with him throughout the interview because he wouldn’t let her standard behavior of accusations, threats, and excuses stand. “Addicts and alcoholics are great at deflecting, and I think she’s shown a lot of that behavior. I’m not real good at letting people do that… ,” he explained. “I didn’t let her wiggle, and think it was very frustrating for her.”
I don’t know about you but I consider this season’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion to be basically an extension of last season’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion, albeit without anyone’s clip-in hair pieces being used to mop the stage floor.
Porsha Williams explains there “wasn’t a lot of screaming and yelling” during the reunion because the women just “wanted to be heard” and “clear up whatever the misunderstandings were” – although there also wasn’t a lot of progress made!
“People were definitely upset last year and lashed out with anger. This year I feel like people were very emotional. It was really similar to the therapy session,” Porsha describes. Although Porsha isn’t really in the business of clearing up any of her shade – in fact she stands by accusing Peter Thomas of cheating (why would she? No shade), and her refusal to apologize to Kenya Moore over last season’s fight.
Kim Richards quietly entered rehab over the weekend, just days after her arrest for public intoxication and her disastrous interview with Dr. Phil. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star checked herself into a private, live-in facility in Malibu where she can still be close to family and friends, but get the treatment she needs.
Sources say Kim made the decision to go to rehab after discussing it with her family, but she’s still in denial about the severity of her addiction. “If the arrest hadn’t happened she wouldn’t be going to rehab; it would be business as usual. She’s in denial that she has a problem,” a source informs People.
Before reading, please note we are deeply sensitive to Bruce’s desire to live his life as a woman, but for the sake of this article we’re using male pronouns.
In light of the interview airing, Linda Thompson, Bruce’s second wife and mother of Brandon and Brody Jenner has spoken-out about her marriage to Bruce and how they privately dealt with his desire to transition to a woman. Linda announces she never would have “dared” violated Bruce’s truth or his dignity by revealing his gender dysphoria before he did so himself.
