When we left off Cynthia Bailey had just discovered that her new beau Will possibly lied about having a girlfriend, and had been two-timing her all along. The news was dropped by NeNe Leakes‘ friend (and new ‘friend of’) Eva Marcille, a newcomer to Atlanta but certainly no neophyte when it comes to causing drama.
Tonight Cynthia continues to deal with the fallout from Eva’s accusation — which is exacerbated when Porsha Williams‘ also makes an allegation about Will’s behavior!
Last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills led to yet another issue between Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump about defining the boundaries of their friendship. I see both sides of this argument. I’d also like to remind them that in the middle of their bickering is a little follicle-ly unstable blonde woman named Dorit Kemsley, who cannot and will not stop talking shit about everyone she calls a friend.
Actually last night everyone (*except Dorit*) was more human. I credit Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave‘s influence. She’s chill, relaxed, absent of pretense, and despite being publicly scolded and denigrated over inappropriate stemware application, she STILL invited everyone to her ‘beach cottage’ for a potluck. Something about casseroles and dips puts everyone in a ‘let’s get real’ mood. Huddled around Teddi’s kitchen island, surrounded by pita chips served from Pottery Barn dishes, the women all showed their vulnerable and softer roots as opposed to their usual Febreezed exterior.
Sometimes it’s not all diamonds and rose in Lisa Vanderpump‘s world. Sometimes the fancy parties held in her honor end in tears and the fancy restaurants she owns go up in smoke. Such was the case on last night’s Vanderpump Rules.
Lisa is now the Editor In Chief of Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine, which I’d always assumed was one of those free magazines, but because this is Beverly Hills that free magazine still is behooving of the fancy of Beverly Hills. Apparently it’s a thing people pay money for, which means Lisa wants a fancy party to celebrate her new position there. Makes sense. What does not make sense is that Lisa puts Stassi Schroeder in charge of said party. Predictably it’s a disaster.
“Happy Birthday to my beautiful girl! Milania you light up every room you walk into, it’s never a dull moment with you & you are always the life of the party! You keep me laughing even when I don’t think I can, you are a sweet sensitive caring young woman, and I’m so lucky to be your mom! I love you to infinity and beyond,” Teresagushed in an Instagram post to her now-tween daughter.
“I look at this whole world through a different prism because I’m more of like, ‘Hey guys, let’s all get along. Let’s see how we can all make this thing work’ versus them thinking, ‘I’m on an island all by myself and I’m my own person’ type thing,” explains Eva.
I love when Kristen Doute plays pot calling the kettle’s bottom black. Like when she talks crap about James Kennedy for being desperate for attention, a user, and an out of control mess who loves to cause trouble, I feel like she must know she’s also describing herself.
Anyway, unsurprisingly, Kristen feels bad for James‘ ex-bestie Logan Noh following his revelation on Vanderpump Rules that he’s in love with James. Which came attached to a fake revelation that he and James have been secretly sleeping together. Well if there’s anyone who can keep up with the Kennedy, it’s professional stalker Krazy Kristen (she is never far away and always lurking in the shadows like a kritter).
Ugh – it’s official, Dorit Kemsley is the one with multiple personalities, not Erika. It’s like Dorit’s evil doppelgänger does all these bad behaviors on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, then Dorit swoops in with a new hair style and a new accent to pretend she has “absolutely no idea” what anyone is talking about because she, a woman of impeccable etiquette, would never EVER call someone a C-word during dinner, or throw a fit over the wrong wine glass at a party, or be one hour late to a drinks meeting then lie about it.
No, she will throw Casino Royale parties where arrives via helicopter in designer gowns, waving to her people and smiling graciously. Dorit’s idealized self is not communicating with her actual self and we’re having problems here. Big time!
Brandi was actually a last-minute addition to the U.S. Celebrity Big Brother house. She said she got the invitation days before casting was announced, and had nothing better to do (this time), so she jumped right in! At least she can admit that reality TV hopping is her profession, although Brandi worries the other housemates already know her weaknesses from watching her on TV SO. MANY. TIMES.
