Come on, Eileen! Tell us how you really feel. In this week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, brokedownTaylor Armstrong reappeared on the scene. And it wasn’t only big hats and big lips she brought with her! Taylor also had some big opinions about sick-selfie-healthy-selfie Yolanda Foster. Eileen Davidson didn’t take too kindly to Taylor’s comments about her ailing friend, though. Eileen opens up in her blog about her feelings on the shenanigans at Ken Todd’s 70th birthday party, Lisa Vanderpump’s little horse debacle, newcomer Erika Girardi, and much more.
Bemoaning her fate as the lone female in her home, Eileen reflects, “I was laughing (crying on the inside) seeing Vince, Jesse, and me in the A.M. trying to get ready for the day. In a house full of boys, I am the lone female voice that calls (screams), ‘Do your dishes! Empty the trash!’ Maybe our house is haunted. I’m the ghost; nobody seems to see or hear me!”
All Yolanda’s Pop! Goes The Symptoms has David questioning. “They believe she’s exaggerating her condition,” explains a source close to the music mogul. David is not alone – this season several of Yolanda’s co-stars are expressing their confusion as well. Most notably, if Yolanda is doing so many treatments, how does she know what’s working? And is it the treatments or the disease that’s making her feel so ill?
About the trip to Miami, Cynthia shared, “I was very excited about the girls’ trip do over. Especially in Miami! I was looking forward to putting all the Lake Lanier drama behind me. It was really thoughtful of Kenya to go out of her way to plan the Lake Lanier outing, on my behalf, to lift my spirits. A “do over” with Kenya and Porsha planning it together (after everything they have been through) was confirmation for me that Porsha and I could move our relationship forward in a positive direction. I welcomed the opportunity.”
Amber Portwood sure knows how to pick’em! After working hard to rebuild her life, get clean and sober, and forge a relationship with daughter Leah after being released from prison, Amber quickly got engaged to Matt Baier, a DJ 19 years her senior!
She’s back! Camille Grammer’s return to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (even in her reduced role) brings with it Camille’s trademarked tsk-tsking of other housewives’ poor behavior, complete with coquettish shoulder shrugs. Or at least, let’s hope it does! Even though she appeared for mere moments on this week’s episode, Camille has some choice words for those who are questioning Yolanda Foster’sillness (cough, cough: Taylor Armstrong!).
Camille’s brush with her own serious health issues has given her some perspective on the situation. She reflects, “In September of 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Endometrial Cancer. Luckily my cancer was caught at this stage. My treatment required surgery, chemo, and radiation therapy under the expert care of Pedro Ramirez at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.”
With the addition of Kim Fields to the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast this season, we’ve seen mixed reactions from fans. Some think she’s way too normal and low-key for this crazy show and others argue that it’s laid-back style that makes her a great addition and a bit of a breath of fresh air – a voice of reason. Also split on their feelings over Kim joining the cast are co-stars Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore. The ladies took to their Bravo blogs this week with very different opinions on what Kim is bringing the show this season.
Phaedra enjoys that Kim brings a different perspective since she’s the newbie. On Kim calling out ‘instigation vs. information’ in regard to Kenya’s sometimes shady way of stirring the pot, Phaedra shared, “My grandmother always said, “A new broom sweeps cleaner!” I thought Kim’s observation was very intuitive. Since she is new to our circle, she brings a different perspective that is refreshing; most of us have been dealing with this adolescent style behavior for some time and we are numb to it. Kim reminds us that people usually don’t do and say a lot of things we see and hear amongst our circle, so it’s nice to have someone there who is so grounded.”
