I always wanted a sister, and maybe that's why it is so heartbreaking for me to see the demise of Kim Richards and Kyle "Splits" Richards relationship on the past and present seasons of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Check that. If I'd had a sister, there is no question we would fight like cats and dogs (I'm feisty!). However, no imaginary sister of mine would have been cool enough in my younger years to carry Disney's Witch Mountain franchise. Furthermore, had I been blessed with two sisters, the lesser known, but very flexible one could never have pulled off starring along side Bette Davis in the freaky Watcher In The Woods. NERAK!
I realize that I often reference this movie when discussing Splits, but it's amazing. I'd tell you to Redbox it, but you probably need to find your local dying Blockbuster to locate it and see Splits in all of her supernatural glory. I feel like knowing the Richards sisters' past makes me more cognizant of their present. A sober Kim is clearly ridding herself of the demons that found her playing the teenage breadwinner, and Kyle is still uber-jealous that her older sister was the breakout child star. I should stop playing arm chair psychiatrist and get on with the post, right? My apologies.
Thankfully, now that the season we're currently watching has wrapped, everything seems to be much better with the Richards sisters. Thank goodness. Their family drama was painful to endure…at best!
Let's discuss the crafty editors on last night's episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. So there they were with a whole huge storyline about how skanky Scheana Marie Famewhore pretended she had never heard of nor seen Eddie Cibrian before and participated in a two-year-long affair with him not knowing he was married to Brandi Glanville. I mean Eddie was unemployed, but karma is a bitch because he eventually left both Scheana and Brandi for LeAnn Rimes. And I would say Eddie lost on that gamble!
Other things happened last night. Bravo introduced us toTaylor Armstrong's boyfriend John Bluher. Way back in the day Taylor was telling us John was her pro-bono attorney on the $1.5M lawsuit she was battling against MMRGlobal. They were also "just friends." Friends with benefits, also known as an affiar. And then he just popped up on the screen attending a couple's night with Taylor, Kyle Richards, and Lisa Vanderpump. Wasn't that a coincidence. Sometimes – just sometimes – the Bravo editors don't do us injustice. Hey, it's once in a blue moon!
Things begin withFaye Resnick trying her darndest to become relevant. Yeah, we still don't like you – go away. Faye's face is like melted, globbed together wax. It's clear that with the friendship she shares with Adrienne Maloof, they also share a plastic surgeon. Karma is a bitch like that, I s'pose!
ApparentlyLisa Vanderpump is also in a fight of her own – with Bravo! According to RadarOnline, Lisa has pissed off Bravo execs royally by appearing on Good Morning America to promote her spinoff.
Bravo, which is owned by NBCMedia, only allows their stars to appear on NBC or it's affiliates shows to promote their various misadventures, products, and television exploits, but Lisa apparently went out on her own to appear on ABC.
Whether it's a Twitter battle or a photo op war, these women love to let everyone know their issues. It's brilliant–it keeps them both in the media (remember Leann's "tearful" interview–with no real tears–where she hated to be called a homewrecker in light of her true love?), and, selfishly, it makes me giggle. Given her first stint on RHOBH, I would never think I'd be Team Brandi, but I totally am. Forgive me in advance for a pro-Brandi post. These ladies are cray. I would love the opportunity to drink wine with them one day…in the same room, of course. Clearly I'd wear a helmet.
Kyle and her mini fashionista were spotted hanging out at her store in Beverly Hills, Kyle by Alene Too. Portia was playing runway model, trying on the goods and striking poses for the cameras. Take a peek at the impromptu photoshoot below!
P.S. Brandi, if you get invited to any birthday shindigs this month by your RHOBH co-star, we have one word for you: decline, decline, decline!
As for her spinoff, Lisa says hard work and dedication are what made Bravo deem her worthy. It had absolutely nothing to do with fan love? “They wouldn’t have given me a spin-off that just shows me sitting on my fat butt at home,” Lisa says.
Faye Resnick, who is rumored to have been promoted to 'Friend of the Housewives,' has apparently been the victim of some strange occurrences as of late. She told police she also received a letter threatening her life! Yikes.
If you recall Faye was Adrienne Maloof's self-elected guard dog – and many believe Kyle deployed Faye to do her dirty work as well! As soon as Faye's blog hit the site, it was flooded with negative hundreds of fan comments. And if you know anything about Bravo's commenting policy they are known for weeding out the bad stuff and leaving in only the good or more gentle criticisms, well they must have gotten some really, really bad responses to Faye's blog because nearly 100% of the responses were straight-up derisive of both her behavior and her demeanor.
In the wake of the apparent controversy Faye's blog has now been removed from the site! As in vamanos, no more, disappeared, exited stage right.
