“I came in not knowing anyone,” said Heather. “I came from the scripted world, and I was very uncomfortable doing reality. When I first started the show, I was very buttoned-up and very reserved. It’s really been an evolution for me in the group and on the show.”
Heather cited family responsibilities and feeling isolated for her “anger” last season. “I was very tired,” she said, “and I didn’t see the other girls a lot. I felt very isolated. I was really angry last year. I wasn’t sure why. I think that’s why.”
Lisa shared her thoughts on Kim Richards and Brandi Glanville‘s friendship. “I think upon reflection, it has been pretty obvious after months of filming the intent of some to insert themselves into an already fractious situation. Kim obviously felt bolstered by BG, much to her detriment, as she became a victim of her own volatility. I doubt since filming has wrapped whether there has been much interaction between BG and Kim,” said Lisa. “It would surprise me greatly if this supposedly close relationship is still flourishing.”
“Well, we have finally reached the end, and the CRAY is definitely showing, isn’t it?” asked Lisa. She went on to wrap up her thoughts on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 5 with a random list.
First on the list, Lisa addressed Kim, “When you put out a claim or accusation about somebody, you need to be damn sure you can back it up. Insinuating something about someone based on something that you “heard” is creating a negative you cannot prove and also has the potential of never truly going away. This is just dangerous. Shame on you, Kim Richards. I’ll pray for you.”
In her blog, Eileen Davidson addressed Lisa‘s texts and questioned why Kim gets to decide what can and what cannot be discussed on camera.
ICYMI, Lisa texted to Kim, “Be very careful or I will f-ck you up. You be nice to your sister, you believe her, and stop telling lies. In that order. You need to get wise. Brandi is not telling the truth. She is lying. I should have said that in that moment, but I didn’t want another Amsterdam to happen and it would have. Your behavior and the way you treat people is not okay. You are nasty and you need to be stopped now.” The threat aside, Eileen said the text was “right on.”
In a recent interview with All Things Real Housewives, Bethenny dished on her co-stars and shared her thoughts on how Real Housewives of New York has changed since season 3. “I think it had changed in that it was contrived, in my opinion, because it had been on for so long that people who were new would know what to expect and think that’s how to manufacture drama,” she surmised.
Bethenny continued, “Coming back this season felt more like what it used to be like. Not contrived, it felt… it took a minute, I’ll be honest… but I feel like the tone was set to just be real and not be contrived and manufactured. You don’t need to do that, you can be interesting enough.”
