On last night's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills I was a little tad bit disappointed in Lisa Vanderpump. I want her to be unimpeachable. I want her to be pristine. I must accept – as we must all – that Lisa is only human. Lisa made a passive aggressive Splits Richards-esque comment toKim Richards (whom I will henceforth refer to as Rambles) because she was late to a cooking party.
Lisa joked this would be a repeat of Hawaii when everyone spent the whole trip waiting on Rambles. Then she asked if Kim took a sleeping pill. It was no bueno. Lisa said it, of course, in a teasing tone but Rambles got defensive and petulent. I know Lisa meant no harm and she is direct, but Kim is vulnerable (and a walking emotional volcano).
Lisa spent the entire evening discussing the Kim situation with Kyle and Mauricio instead of coming up to Kim and saying 'Look, I'm sorry. It was an inappropriate joke.' No instead she told everyone she had hurt Kim's feelings and didn't really know why or what to do. And Rambles complained that Lisa was "fake" and was trying to make her look bad.
Their lament: the way the show is set up (i.e. it being a REALITY show) other cast members can say anything about anyone on the show and get away with it even if it's mean, hurts their feelings, or is allegedly, possibly a deep dark secret that no one wants revealed and is being lied about.
“I don’t know if Alexis and I will ever be true friends,” the Real Housewives of Orange County star admits to RumorFix. “I think I’m getting to appreciate her for who she is and she’s getting to know me for who I am … "
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is definitely in for a cast shake up. With two ladies out and reportedly two more to go, we cannot wait to see what next season is like!
Friends of the Housewives, Camille Grammer and Marisa Zanuck were both asked to skip the reunion and in Camille's case that was more than fine because she has no interest in returning next season. "There were some good times and some not so good times, but it's very hard to live your life out on the screen," a source tells PEOPLE about Camille's departure.
Camille, who is much happier with her life post-divorce, feels she no longer needs the show and the stress it brings isn't worth it. Well, best of luck Camille!
Last night the ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta brought their southern notions and their southern concepts of time to LA. And apparently in LA no one is ever late.
Things begin with the ladies traveling via trains, planes, and hummer limos (but thankfully not on a platoon of Louwee VeeTAWN luggage) to NeNe Leakes' house in the Hollywood Hills. She must have rented Chateau Sheree, the LA Version because the road to get there is completely under construction and the limo driver informs them they can walk the rest of the way up.
NeNe has to drive down and get them in her SUV and the house turns out to be gorgeous. NeNe's is hosting a fabulous dinner party so she can introduce her Hollywood friends to her cast mates. She wants the ladies to arrive back at her house by 9pm sharp for a sit-down dinner, even though it's the day they landed and they have like six minutes to get ready and traverse down the hill on foot to meet their limo and schlep all across town. No one is thrilled.
StraightFromTheA reports that Phaedra will be returning to her roots and her new show will be all about Phaedra Parks, Attorney At Law and not about Phaedra Parks, Donkeybootyologist, married wannabe mortician!
The new show is rumored to be a "People's Court" type show where Phaedra will put her mediation skills to the test as she works with two parties reach a resolution to legal issues.
Apparently the drama this season will be quite insane with the ladies bickering and going through several personal dramas. "Friendships change constantly," Tamratells OK Magazine. "Last year it ended with me and Vicki [Gunvalson] in a huge fight and I think you’ll see the ups and downs of us this year."
"Vicki and I—we go up and down. We fight and we make up," Tamra explains. "But even when we’re fighting we still talk. It’s crazy. We have a really weird relationship."
