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.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
That last episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills had me feeling vicariously overwhelmed for Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. Yes, she did manage to stir the pot by telling Lisa Rinna about some unflattering comments Dorit Kemsley made three months ago, but it really didn’t seem like pot stirring was her intention.
It came across like Teddi felt genuinely guilty keeping this to herself, it was killing her not to get it off her chest, and then she realized that all of those shit talking scenes were filmed and she would have to answer for them eventually. And then her tension with Dorit morphed into a tongue lashing from Erika Girardi. Teddi insinuated that Erika was lying when she told her she has “pretend amnesia.” I don’t blame Erika for being offended, but she channeled that Hong Kong freakout and came for Teddi- way too hard.
