Unfortunately it looks like that failed meetup for drinks between Dorit Kemsley and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is going to get dragged out for a few episodes this season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Teddi texted Dorit as soon as she got to the restaurant and Dorit left her hanging for fifty four minutes, insisting that she was too busy to send her a text because she was on the phone. News flash: you actually can text while you’re on the phone.
Both women shared their version of the story in their subsequent lunch dates with other cast members, but they haven’t discussed it with each other…. yet.
Initially, I was happy that at least something happened during the last episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. To say that Season 8 “got off to a slow start” would be putting it nicely. I was pleased when Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave refused to accept Dorit Kemsley’s rude excuses after she left her sitting alone for an hour when they were supposed to get drinks. Dorit stirred the pot even further when she tried to twist the narrative in a conversation with Kyle Richards about the failed meetup.
I was more entertained than I’ve been for most of this season and that’s when I realized that this fifty-four minute wait will get dragged out just like pantygate did last season and Munchausen accusations did the year before. Why can’t these women be more like the New York Housewives? They offend each other, argue, get back together, and then repeat the cycle again with new offenses instead of elongating one issue for a whole season (or multiple seasons).
If Dorit didn’t take over the dinner, the other women could have got to know David. Obviously that did not happen. No details were revealed during the episode and now there is a lot of information circulating about Camille’s husband-to-be.
Clearly I counted my eggs before they hatched when I concluded that Dorit Kemsley redeemed herself at the beginning of her second Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season. She was getting along with Erika Jayne while they gambled in Las Vegas and I was so here for their budding friendship.
Then she couldn’t keep Lisa Rinna’s name out of her mouth, which I normally understand since Rinna has caused some trouble over the years, but she was pretty innocent this season (at least until she casually brought up those assault allegations against Ken Todd). Dorit is either talking shit about Rinna or looking for an excuse to do so again. As if that wasn’t annoying enough, she offended most of the fandom when she got wasted and called Camille Grammer a “stupid c**t” for absolutely no reason.
Last season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills I suspected something was misfiring inside Dorit Kemsley‘s brain because she just didn’t seem to ‘get’ certain things. Now I wonder if the reason she changes her hair so much is because instead of a brain her head is filled with extra pieces of hair. It’s plausible, right? And yes, once again last night was The Dorit Show, and I dunno… Lisa Rinna is a better TV host!
You guys – I am about to make a startling confession and I fully expect to be stoned with carbohydrates and Payless Shoes for this, but I have to do it. So here it goes: I truly believe the Housewife most like myself is Lisa Rinna.
No, I have not secretly written a book on how to suck D (yet! *wink, wink*), but when it comes to getting a tasty piece of gossip or knowing something I shouldn’t, I, like Lipsa, cannot help but blurt it out at inopportune times.
There has been a lot going on with all of your favorite (and least favorite) reality stars this week, which means that Instagram was full of new photos. Jax Taylor got support from his Vanderpump Rules costars (past and present love interests) Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Brittany Cartwright in Michigan at a “Celebration of Life” event to honor his father who recently passed away. Meanwhile Scheana Marie cozied up to (yet another) one of Brandi Glanville’s exes- Gerard Butler- and posed for a selfie with him, of course. She even claims that he was the one who insisted on taking the photo.
At this point in the season, watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills feels like Groundhog Day. The same thing happens every single episode: Dorit Kemsley acts like she wants to move forward, but in reality she is either talking about Lisa Rinna or looking for another excuse to mention her name. The viewers are ready for some new drama to occur instead of rehashing all of the nonsense from previous seasons.
The newest Housewife Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave doesn’t understand why Rinna’s name is always in Dorit’s mouth. Personally, I think it’s annoying and desperate to mention Rinna in every single scene. On the other hand, I’m impressed that Dorit has managed to talk shit about Rinna in all of the episodes this season in between showing off her glam squad, acting like she hasn’t seen her children in years every time they walk into the room, and trying to convince the audience that she can cook. That just sounds so tired to me.
