When Tom learned that his ex was arrested in Palm Beach after a tryst gone very awry, he reportedly told friends that he was feeling “shocked” and “really sad for Luann and her family that they had to go through this over the holidays.”
Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is easing her way into Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills one famous father at a time, but dealing with Erika Girardi hasn’t been easy – in fact, so far it’s been downright icy! Teddi was anticipating this cool reaction, though.
Beginning on a positive: Teddi had a great time in Vegas with most of the girls. “The nightclub and the pool were great opportunities to get to know the women better. I could feel genuine friendships and connections were forming and was excited about it. But with Erika, I felt like I was trying too hard without much reciprocation.”
Viva Las Vegas, right?! Everyone was being backed into walls on last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills – from Lisa Rinna in a Ferris Wheel (with a bar); to Erika Girardi into a designer makeup counter. Won’t you just be Lisa Vanderpump‘s friend?!
It’s dark and scary days as Lipsa is among them. Dorit Kemsley is afraid. What will Lipsa’s evil, vicious, devil’s tongue say next?! Will she be hiding a Blue Bunny in Kyle Richards‘ Blue Birkin? Or will she come in peace?
One thing I love about this show is that I can always expect Kyle Richards to be not only badly and unfortunately dressed (what is she thinking with all these muumuu-sized sleeves – just wear a kaftan already!), but also grasping for acceptance. Only Kyle would get excited about swinging a Birkin around years after everyone has gotten over them. And yes, it’s a lovely color, and it’s still obviously an extremely expensive bag, but girl, just like we have MOVED ON from Kim Richards drama, we have moved on from Birkin worship. Except Kyle has done neither. We do not need an opening episode that drags Rambles up from the dregs, but apparently Kyle thinks we do.
Jax Taylor is the least surprising person on Vanderpump Rules? Possibly in the whole species universe. His life cycle is drink, cheat, lie, repeat. Dude, even freaking amoebas evolve. You know what else doesn’t evolve: Lala Kent‘s makeup. Yep, she reappears this episode with the same crazy over-lined lips but also a promise not to ‘Jax’ Lisa Vanderpump over ever again. Maybe change does happen on Vanderpump Rules?
So Jax cheated on Brittany Cartwright with her friend Faith Stowers, possibly impregnating her, and after posturing like she might actually leave
reality TV him, they’re having more sex than EVER! Brittany just wants to feel something with Jax; she wants to know he loves her more than all the other girls. That logic is, well, that’s the reason she’s in a relationship with Jax! But doesn’t Brittany’s relationship with Jesus remind her that she should have some moral standing, or standards? I don’t understand reality TV religion.
It was another NeNe Leakes-free episode because apparently she is in LA and Bravo cameras are only permitted there if they’re filming Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (which premieres tomorrow night). What are our thoughts on NeNe getting to participate like every other episode? Like, she misses half the practices but she still gets to play in the all-star games? Hmm. Well, I guess she did start the team!
First up, Sheree Whitfield meets Porsha Williams at an extremely expensive housing fixtures store run by Prince William’s long-lost brother. Sheree pretends she’s buying $8,000 doors for the “spa” she is installing in her basement, but we all know that’s some BS. When life gives you plumbing leaks, make a sauna! Porsha, to her credit, played along nicely that Sheree could actually afford any of this stuff since she was there for the gossip about Sheree’s bae and the mess that happened in San Fran when Cynthia Bailey fled the winery.
Porsha must’ve been inspired by Kenya Moore‘s fake wedding (her for real fake wedding, not to be confused with her real wedding which everyone thinks is fake. Actually, correction: this is Kenya’s SECOND real-fake wedding, because remember Life Twirls On?). Anyway, Porsha was feeling some positive vibes and apologized to Kandi for the rapegate drama. Porsha appeared sincere – for Porsha – but Kandi just wasn’t ready to hear any words coming out of Porsha’s mouth – even nice ones!
Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills is back (glee!) and with it includes the newest blonde Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. Teddi, a mom of two, is also a wellness accountability coach who channeled her passion into the business LA Fitness Junkie. Her goal is to help others – mostly women – feel good about themselves through health and fitness.
Teddi claaaaims she’s not one to look for drama, but she’s not afraid of it either. “I’m straightforward and I tell it like it is,” she explains.
