On the heartbreaking news of Kim’s second arrest, “When Lisa called me after hearing the news about my sister Kim I was in Idaho with my husband and children on vacation. Words can’t describe what I was feeling at the moment. It was SO new. I had just heard and clearly wasn’t ready to talk about it. I was still processing what had happened and thinking about how it would impact Kim and our family.”
Earlier this week Brandisat down with Nik Richie to dish on her new reality show, her old reality show and everything in between. Nik started the interview off way back at the beginning of Brandi’s rise to fame (aka Eddie’s affair with LeAnn) and she was candid, as always, about her grievances with their current situation. The two things that bug Brandi the most: the lack of a respectable amount of child support from Eddie, and the oversharing of photos of her boys by LeAnn.
Eileen Davidson managed to dodge most of the drama (what little there was) on this week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But she still breaks the episode down in her blog, commenting on everything fromLisa Rinna’s QVC hustle to Lisa Vanderpump’s reaction to she and Kyle Richardsleaving their hotel in the Hamptons. As for the not-quite-sober ghost of Kim Richards haunting their Hamptons trip, Eileen supports Kyle’s wish to save her own skin stay mum on the mess, but does admit “the topic keeps getting dragged out” no matter how much Kyle wishes it away.
Eileen calls herself out on letting hubby Vince see her dress’s price tag while packing for the Hamptons. “Having Vincent help me pack clothes with the price tags on? AMATEUR move! Lisa R. texted me when she saw this episode, ‘What were you thinking? You have to cut those suckers off!’ I’ve now learned: Always destroy the evidence. I won’t make the same mistake again.”
When asked if she’s enjoying being a real housewife, Erika shares, “I’ve had a great time.” Andy asks how her lawyer husband, Tom Girardi, feels about the show. “He’s so supportive,” gushes Erika. “I really have nothing negative to say. Everything is okay.” Andy quips, “Well, you’re only four weeks into it.”
The girls are packing, which means a secret and exalted Bravo ritual known as CLOSET TOURS!
First and foremost – unfortunately – we are in the mumu factory. Tucked deep in a corner of Beverly Hill is a tiny, cluttered, neon-covered, eye-searingly printed lair known as Kyle Richards‘ dressing room. Ironically one of the closet rods actually collapses under the kaftan weight and refuses to be put right. Girl – that’s a sign! Even Porsha, aged 7, refused to help Kyle put the bar back up – she shot mama a knowing side-eye that said, “Things happen for a reason.” MmmmHmmmm…
The highlights – OK, lowlights, are below. And no, we’re not bullying Brandi by PULLING direct quotes from her so don’t try it. It’s not our fault her truth cannons sometimes self-detonate!
First of all Nik is so freaking cheesy. He sucks up to Brandi hardcore and she takes the bait. Then they rehash every. single. dramatic moment of Brandi’s life, but I do like Nik’s voice and he asks insightful questions.
It wasn’t intentional – the Sacramento, CA SPCA reached out to the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star with information about a Pom named Harrison who suffers form Alopecia. Giggy also suffers from Alopecia, so the animal rescue organization obviously knew they could find support in Lisa, who has been active in charities for children with the disease. The SPCA hoped Lisa would help get the word out about Harrison needing a loving home – but she ended up doing so much more.
“I’m glad Yolanda suggested that we get together at this charming park by her house,” shared Erika. “It was nice to get her out and walking and to meet Kyle. Yolanda was right; we both have a lot in common. We’re the same age, we were both young moms, and we work in entertainment.”
