Real Housewives of Beverly Hills


I feel like Erika Jayne recorded the song XXpen$ive just to provide great headlines and opening paragraphs for articles about her lifestyle.

So here it goes, my completely unoriginal joke: It is XXpen$ive to be Erika Jayne. Obviously. She is the same person who said “Being rich is great and being poor sucks” and other similar phrases from the second she started filming Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is shocked by Erika

After a brutal episode last week squaring off with both Erika Girardi and Dorit Kemsley, things went a lot better for Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave during the last episode.

She got an apology from Erika, before getting that contractually obligated invitation to the Berlin cast trip and it will be interesting to see where things go from here. In real life, months after this season was filmed, Erika and Teddi have been dragging each other on Twitter, so even if things did improve between the two of them, clearly it was only temporary.

Erika Jayne and RuPaul

No one had a better rookie season than Erika Girardi – well, accept for maybe her pop star alter ego, Erika Jayne. Erika won over the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers with her catsuits, catchphrases, and dance moves.

Two seasons later, Erika left her time as a neutral party behind. She fought with then-rookie Dorit Kemsley for most of her second season. And now Erika is at odds with season’s new girl Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. Is this an unfortunate pattern or merely a coincidence? Erika opened up about that and more during the last episode of Watch What Happens Live.

I would give anything to witness the Housewives crossover that went down when Teresa Giudice, Carole Radziwill, and Brandi Glanville all took part in the same promotional event. Obviously, they all looked amazing, but I would love to know what they chatted about in between working. It seems like such a random grouping of people that I cannot help being interested in and entertained by.

Speaking of Teresa Giuidice, one of her most formidable opponents, Kim DePaola, the eternally infamous Kim D, hung out with Teresa’s estranged cousin Kathy Wakile… and made sure to photograph it, of course. When were these two ever friends? I can’t imagine Kathy wanted anything to do with Kim D when she orchestrated the Strippergate shenanigans back in the day. I imagine they got together to talk shit about Teresa and Melissa Gorga….or maybe I’m just getting dramatic and they just wanted to cause a stir by posing together for a social media post. If that’s the case, then mission accomplished. If they actually are legitimately friends with no ulterior motives, then color me shocked.

Ken & Lisa

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills was about righting wrongs, ending recriminations, and dealing with loss. Except if you’re Dorit Kemsley, then it was about holding onto a grudge that doesn’t even belong to you.

First my condolences to Lisa Vanderpump who lost Pink Dog. Unbeknowst to Ken and Lisa, Pink Dog had a heart condition and went into cardiac arrest, dying in Ken’s arms on the way to the vet. Ken and Lisa are obviously devastated by losing one of their furry children, and worst of all, Ken blames himself. Then right after Pink Dog’s sudden passing, another of their pack, Pikachu, ended up on a ventilator. Grief? I’m sure Ken and Lisa have rescued at least 100 more dogs since then, and they’re now stacking them on top of each other like shoe boxes to form a furry bulwark against evil bitches, but it’s sad about Pink Dog all the same. RIP.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Preview For Tonight; Plus, Erika Jayne’s Book Releases!

Hands down, our favorite Real Housewives past time happens to be episodes that involve psychics. Tonight we have another Real Housewives of Beverly Hills psychic dinner party, hosted once again by Kyle Richards, that will attempt to top her iconic Allison DuBois debacle. At the dinner, Erika Jayne admits to her own psychic abilities, while Dorit Kemsley learns a bit about one of her past lives and Kyle gets a hint of her late mom’s feelings about the TV projects she’s producing.

Meanwhile, Lisa Vanderpump deals with the tragic loss of her beloved Pink Dog.

Instagram Roundup

With the Season 10 premiere of Real Housewives of New York on its way, expect more photos from the show’s stars on social media, just in time to get us all hyped up.

Tinsley Mortimer shared a photo with (most of) the cast by the water. Ramona Singer celebrated a friend’s bachelorette party. Dorinda Medley posted a selfie for her followers to enjoy. Sonja Morgan supported Luann de Lesseps’ healthy lifestyle change at a holistic health center. Is it April 4 yet? I need the Season 10 premiere and I need it now. Thankfully the stars are all posting on Instagram to satiate my need for RHONY content.

Claudia Jordan Insists She Wasn’t Fired From Real Housewives Of Atlanta & Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey, & Kenya Moore “Pleaded” For Her To Return

Aside from that one argument with NeNe Leakes, Claudia Jordan’s time on Real Housewives of Atlanta is easy to forget. After all, she was only on the show for one season. Even so, she says that she was asked to come back for more, but she still didn’t get that offer to hold a peach in the opening credits, i.e. a full-time spot as a Real Housewife.

Claudia explained why she left the show after she was offered the opportunity to be a “Friend of the Housewives” and threw some shade at her former costars.
