I feel like there is a giant math equation regarding how much gossip we hear about the show in proportion to the ratio of time a housewives franchise has been on the air divided by the amount of certified crazies in the cast and then taken to the third power of the square root of how many on-air divorces occur multiplied by the number of husbands we think could potentially be cheating. It's like E=MC² up in here!
Given all of those mathematical conundrums, it only makes sense we'd be hearing a lot the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills at the moment. We've got the crazies, we've got the divorces, and I have some suspicions about some of those husbands! First up, we've got Brandi Glanville engaging in yet another Twitter war with home wrecker (don't sue me!) LeAnn Rimes and more news on the Adrienne Maloof front.
know what they say…if you're not being featured on every episode of a reality show, the best thing you can do is make the media rounds so people either A) don't forget about you, or B) (in the case of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' "star" Marisa Zanuck) know who you are before you're ever seen on the small screen. We won't see Marisa until the eighth episode of RHOBH (yes, you read that correctly…THE EIGHTH!! That's not even a friend of a housewife, is it Dana Wilkey?), but she's bombarding our favorite blogs with controversial interviews. I may just like her.
You may recall Marisa has already talked smack about Real Housewives of New Jersey'sTeresa Giudice and revealed that Lisa Vanderpump is nice…when the cameras are rolling. Now, she's talking about how awful her co-star Taylor Armstrong is. The lady is all about making friends, isn't she? Not that I blame her…with the exception of my pink puff of fabulousness known as Jiggy's mom, I think she's probably spot-on with her personality perceptions.
Having to go through such a personal and private matter in such a public forum is no doubt extremely difficult. Not to mention, they both have to go through it the first time and then re-watch it with the rest of the world. I'll just stay behind my computer…I'd rather not have to deal with all of that!
I don't think any marriage counselor ever would advise you to go on a reality show if you and your spouse were having issues…especially not on one of the housewives franchises. The Bravo freight train is riddled with divorce. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that of all the cities, Real Housewives of New Jersey is the only series that hasn't had a resulting divorce…and we all saw how well those ladies' marriages looked last night, right?
The couple have been going back and forth, slinging around accusations of abuse and emergency orders left and right. Finally, it seems that sanity has won, and they are prepared to move forward with the best interests of their children in mind. What a novel idea!
Another day, another saga in the Adrienne Maloof/Paul Nassif divorce. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills couple as been dragging each other through the mud since their separation was made public. After allegations of verbal and physical abuse against each other, Adrienne accused Paul of being violent towards their children. An emergency hearing was held, and Adrienne was awarded temporary sole custody of the pair's sons.
This week, the Department of Children and Family Services found that the claims of abuse against the children were unfounded, and Paul went to court to regain visitation with his three boys. Yesterday, Paul was awarded supervised visitation of his children. Um…didn't he just get cleared? Sounds like there could be more to the story and the flying accusations!
As the custody battle for the couple's three boys heats up, more mud-slinging is occurring between the pair. I can honestly say that I never saw all of this madness coming. I thought if anyone in the Bravo franchise could have a civil divorce it would be these two. I hate that I was so wrong!
As with all the women in Bravo's housewives franchises, the ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills aren't just reality television stars. They have other gigs, y'all!
The troubled Kim Richards is often touted as the series' resident child star, however her sister Kyle Splits McGee Richards also was–and is–quite the actress. Kyle appeared on Little House on the Prairie from 1975 through 1982, and she had a recurring role on ER (that I totally don't remember, and I was obsessed with that show. Whatever). I will say I do remember a young Kyle from the creepiest movie Disney ever produced, Watcher In the Woods, where she starred alongside the legendary Bette Davis…does anyone remember this gem? NERAK!! No? Well perhaps you recently saw her in a Lifetime movie (the name escapes me) where Kyle plays a pill pushing grifter who meets her demise in a giant freezer thanks to Charisma Carpenter. Anyone? Well, if you missed Kyle in all of those wonderful acting vehicles, fear not…she's hitting the small screen once again!
