Condolences are in order for reality TV star Lisa Vanderpump. Her brother Mark passed away in England on April 3- reportedly of a drug overdose.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
It is so tough to follow the changing dynamics on reality TV shows. Cast members go from best friends to enemies in the matter of an episode. Not only that, but these shows are usually filmed months before the episodes actually air. Thankfully we have social media to help keep us up to date on who is getting along these days.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Brandi Glanville shared a photo of her son with Kim Richards. She even referred to Kim as “Auntie Kim,” so it’s clear that these two are still very close. If only they both would return to the show to save us from another boring season.
Normally I’m sad when a Real Housewives season comes to an end. That is not how I feel about Season 8 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills wrapping up. It was easily the most boring, least enjoyable, and overall worst season in the show’s history.
Essentially nothing happened, but they still managed to drag out the reunion into three different episodes. Now, we are so close to putting that dismal season behind us.
During her first season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Erika Girardi and her alter ego Erika Jayne became instant fan favorites. The viewers could not help being intrigued by her double life as a lawyer’s wife during the day and a club singer at night. Then the line between Erika Girardi and Erika Jayne started to blur and she was accused of being “cold” by Lisa Vanderpump, Dorit Kemsley, and plenty of viewers.
She didn’t wear panties during one episode and it became the focal point of her second season and she went toe to toe with “villain” Dorit. For the most part, the fandom sided with Erika, but her third season was a whole different situation. She snapped at new girl Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave after she accused Erika of having “pretend amnesia,” but it wasn’t the first time the fans saw Erika lose her cool. She unleashed on close friend Eileen Davidson in Hong Kong for no reason. Short story long, Erika definitely lost her universal appeal with the fandom. So what does this mean for her future on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Is she done with the show?
Last night was part 3 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion. Which means this season of interminable squabbles about protocol and etiquette at the queen’s court of public opinion, an unintentional farce from the court jester, is over. Thank you Dorit Kemsley for your tragicomic contributions to Reality TV – we salute you with a beer stein filled with cheap champagne.
So last night the ladies of Beverly Hills trotted out their plethora of headache-inducing shiny dresses for the last time to bicker over such impotent social slights as who talks about themselves the most (the answer: always and forever Kyle Richards) and the definition of a liar. For the record, I really dislike recapping reunions. It’s like following a verbal tennis game and I always want to activate closed captioning on my TV to catch all the shady little barbs, except I don’t actually know how to turn that on. Maybe that’s a good thing?
Kyle Richards and her husband Mauricio Umansky are doing something very un-Beverly Hills: they’re hiking and enjoying the great outdoors (albeit with champagne and a fancy resort) in Utah and Arizona.
The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star and her husband, along with some friends have been vacationing at the exclusive Amangiri resort in the red rock Antelope Canyons and Rattlesnake Canyons. There they’ve been swimming in Lake Powell, hiking and trekking, mountain biking and of course enjoying five-star luxury service! Champagne on the rocks – literally.
Your favorite (and least favorite) reality TV stars were all about the family time this week with their Instagram posts.
Beverly Hills Housewife Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky took their daughter Sophia Umansky to explore Washington, D.C. before she goes off to college. Kylie Jenner and her newborn daughter Stormi Webster enjoyed a vacation. Teen Mom’s Farrah Abraham vacationed in Fiji with her daughter Sophia Abraham. Jenelle Evans’ sons went fishing with her husband David Eason. Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga celebrated her son Joey’s birthday with her husband Joe Gorga and their other children. Fredrik Eklund celebrated his birthday with husband Derek Kaplan and their twin babies. Scott Disick shared a photo with his oldest son Mason Disick.
Thankfully Season 8 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is almost over. It is beyond me how they managed to drag out the discussion of this painfully boring season into a three-part reunion, yet here we are: one episode away from putting this god awful season behind us.
This season has been downright dreadful. Essentially nothing has happened, yet the loyal fans are still here finishing it up watching the reunion episodes. Now Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is commenting on her tension with Dorit Kemsley– over glassware and tardiness.
