And by people I mean Brandi Glanville and Gerard Butler are still talking about. When Gerard stopped by the Bravo clubhouse as a guest on Watch What Happens Live, it was inevitable that their tryst would become a topic of conversation. It was. And it didn’t take long for Brandi to clap back with her version of events.
Just when Dorit Kemsley was starting to win over some of her haters, she stood up Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave after inviting her to get drinks. In the grand scheme of things, this is not a huge deal, but Dorit comes across as rude and self-involved, to put it mildly.
The episode was complete with time stamps, so it’s easy to see that the narrative for this incident will go in Teddi’s favor, but Dorit did attempt to change that when she tattled to Kyle Richards with her version of the story.
Initially, I was happy that at least something happened during the last episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. To say that Season 8 “got off to a slow start” would be putting it nicely. I was pleased when Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave refused to accept Dorit Kemsley’s rude excuses after she left her sitting alone for an hour when they were supposed to get drinks. Dorit stirred the pot even further when she tried to twist the narrative in a conversation with Kyle Richards about the failed meetup.
I was more entertained than I’ve been for most of this season and that’s when I realized that this fifty-four minute wait will get dragged out just like pantygate did last season and Munchausen accusations did the year before. Why can’t these women be more like the New York Housewives? They offend each other, argue, get back together, and then repeat the cycle again with new offenses instead of elongating one issue for a whole season (or multiple seasons).
The only thing worse than a bitter breakup is the demise of a close friendship. Losing a pal who knows where all the bodies are buried cannot be easy. Case in point: Lisa Vanderpumpand Brandi Glanvilleused to be best friends on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills until it all went horribly wrong before and after Brandi got booted from the show.
Now Brandi is spilling all of the tea when it comes to her former bestie and life behind the scenes as a Real Housewife of Beverly Hills.
If Dorit didn’t take over the dinner, the other women could have got to know David. Obviously that did not happen. No details were revealed during the episode and now there is a lot of information circulating about Camille’s husband-to-be.
Clearly I counted my eggs before they hatched when I concluded that Dorit Kemsley redeemed herself at the beginning of her second Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season. She was getting along with Erika Jayne while they gambled in Las Vegas and I was so here for their budding friendship.
Then she couldn’t keep Lisa Rinna’s name out of her mouth, which I normally understand since Rinna has caused some trouble over the years, but she was pretty innocent this season (at least until she casually brought up those assault allegations against Ken Todd). Dorit is either talking shit about Rinna or looking for an excuse to do so again. As if that wasn’t annoying enough, she offended most of the fandom when she got wasted and called Camille Grammer a “stupid c**t” for absolutely no reason.
