Lisa Vanderpump ditched the pink wardrobe this weekend and opted for a blue dress for her Grand Marshal duties at the Palm Springs Festival of Lights parade. The Shahs of Sunset stars walked the red carpet at the Kiis FM Jingle Ball. It feels like the new season is never going to start! So much for #Shahctober, eh?
Former “Girls Next Door” star Holly Madison hosted the 2014 Las Vegas Great Santa Run. Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick look far from broken up as they leave a lunch date hand in hand. LeAnn Rimes headed out in NYC with her umbrella holder and husband Eddie Cibrian after performing on the NBC Christmas Tree Lighting special.
Brandi admits that it definitely looks like she’s being excluded by her co-stars, but only some of them gave her the cold shoulder. “Yolanda, Kim and I really hit it off with Rinna and in the beginning Kyle [Richards]… but not after some drama takes place,” Brandi reveals. “I LOVE Kim. We have such an honest bond. We laugh, we cry, we get into true silly girlfriend stuff. We call each other constantly.”
Throwing shade at Lisa, and also her new enemy Kyle Richards, Brandi also compares herself to Yolanda Foster‘s middle daughter Bella. I’m sure Yo just loooooves that and considers it a real compliment! Right now Yolanda is rocking and sobbing on the star deck of private space shuttle, hovering over the rings of Saturn, clutching a lemon and sobbing, “Where did I go wrong?! Are you there My Love, it’s me YoFridgidaire…”
Anyway, back to Brandi because this is supposed to be about her. “Watching Yolanda with Bella, I feel I have a special connection with her, because like her, I too am a middle child with an older sister and a younger brother. We are not the firstborns, and we are not the babies,” the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star reflects. “I feel, much like her, I am a bit of a rebel and don’t like it when people try and tell me what to do. I’m sure Bella will find her fair share of trouble as she grows into a strong woman, but I also know she will come out on top in the end, because us middle children are built tough.”
This season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills is being heralded as their best season yet. Speaking out on all the drama, which Kyle Richards says “gives her anxiety,” she acknowledges that sometimes things cross an ugly line on the show. And one person who she can’t forgive for crossing that line is Brandi Glanville!
Before we get into all that, Kyle breaks down what is upcoming this season. Kyle feels like this season she’s much less guarded on camera, “There are so many snippets I see and I think ‘I never thought they would use that!’ Like embarrassing, silly little things,” she laughs, adding that she “forgets” the cameras are there. <cough, cough bullshit cough, cough>.
I’ll be honest, I don’t know what to think about ol’ Kyle “Splits” Richards on this new season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She is clearly trying to come back from ganging up on Lisa Vanderpump in hopes of becoming a fan favorite, but sometimes she seems very disingenuous…and then sometimes, I find myself liking her. It’s at these times that I swill more pinot, rock in the corner and cry.
She’s certainly panning to the viewers, hoping to be more likable, and it’s especially evident in this week’s Bravo blog where she dishes on mother/daughter bonding, fun times with friends, and of course, that precocious Portia (seriously, Mauricio, take me shopping!). Kyle begins, “Watching Lisa [Rinna] getting ready for her birthday makes me smile. Her daughter giving her tips is very familiar to me. My girls hang out in my room while I get ready and give me style advice. When I don’t listen and they question why, I have to explain that while I love their advice, I’m not 14 years old, and I have to fine tune the advice to make it age appropriate. They still don’t get the ‘pointy witch shoes’ that are so popular amongst my friends and me. I love seeing Gigi’s career take off. I know how excited and proud Yolanda [Foster] is. Gigi is such a young girl to have such a busy life. She has a good head on her shoulders, due to her parents’ love and guidance. Bella is another beauty who I have no doubt will have her own exciting career. At this point, Yolanda and I are counting down the days until Bella and Alexia leave for college. A bittersweet time.”
Last night I had written the perfect recap in my mind, but then I fell asleep. When is read-a-brain scan technology coming out? Anyway, y’all will now have to be stuck with my sloppy seconds morning after recap of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. I hope it will suffice.
Lisa Rinna is celebrating a fabulous 50+ birthday. She peruses her closet, with the assistance of her daughters, to pick out the perfect out for her birthday dinner at PUMP. I love a BH closet – if we could spend the entire show in various closets – they could eat dinner in there, drink wine, argue – and we’d just be distracted by looking at all the glorious clothes.
Having glorious scenes at restaurants will also suffice. Lisa Vanderpump throws Lipsa’s birthday dinner at PUMP. LVP has Ken decked out in the family approved color of Vanderpinkie – they need a family crest of sparkly Pomeranian dyed bright pink. Lipsa is amazed by how gorgeous everything looks. Kyle Richards and Mauricio attend. Kyle waxes hairetic about how laughing with LVP is the part of their friendship she loves. Subtext: what she misses is partaking in free wine and food, while hob-nobbing with A-litsters.
On her relationship with sister Kim after Kingsley bit her daughter Alexia. “My daughter is doing better, back at school after a month off. ” Her relationship with Kim is better, “It was a bump in the road. It was a very emotional situation, Kingsley is very important to Kim and I don’t hold against her what happened in any way, shape or form, but it was difficult for our family absolutely.”
Lisa Vanderpump hinted that the drama picks up with Eileen‘s arrival. “Things change rather rapidly I am afraid, from this gentle start.” Lisa loosely credited this season’s other newbie – Lisa Rinna — for her decision to return to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after all her “friends” turned on her last season.
