Apparently the phrase “British humor” is the go-to excuse to defend questionable behavior on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. They get to say whatever is on their mind, but they got off consequence free under the guise that the insult was uttered in good fun. I have no idea how Dorit Kemsley thinks that she can get away with British humor since she’s a Connecticut native, but it’s actually working out pretty well for her.
She managed to make this entire season about her and it was only her first year. Clearly, this is a woman who knows how to navigate a social circle. Props to her. Sure, she brought down my girl Erika Girardiin the process, but I have to admit that she really knows what she’s doing. Love her or hate her, she was meant to be a Housewife. That’s for damn sure. She knows how to stir the pot and she looks good doing it.
Even though Kim Richards isn’t even a cast member on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the whole entire season has been about her- again. What is it with so many of these women using Kim for a story line? It’s really just bad casting if these people have nothing to discuss other than whether or not Kim is sober.
And Kim is so done with it. She appears on the reunion to put Lisa Rinna in her place. That’s not all though: Kim has even more to say about Rinna exploiting her to get more camera time- again.
Last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion was wash, rinse, and repeat pantygate. And even though the stains have come out, Erika Girardi and Dorit Kemsley still can’t toss them in the drawer and move on. Can’t one of Dorit’s three full-time housekeepers clean up this mess? What about “Soapy and Sudsy“?
Andy Cohen wastes no time defrosting the world of Erika Jayne, wondering why she has to be so cold? But Andy and I are on different time frames, so my first order of business is discussing wardrobe. Which means Kyle Richards.
UGH. How does Kyle By KantDressTooThousand expect us to take her boutique seriously when she is wearing a cold-shoulder leotard that she put a strapless bra over. With a skirt that looks like shape wear. SERIOUSLY!? I just cannot. even. fathom. why?! Kyle is aware that when organizing a ‘sitting down for TV outfit’ one should, you know, TEST how it looks while seated? Apparently, these are things only non-showbiz people know – the former F-list child stars did not get such stellar education.
If I could be anyone on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it would be Kyle Richards. She is an OG cast member. She is on good terms with everyone and is bringing in the cash with all of her side ventures. She definitely has the best thing going for her out of everyone in this cast.
Aside from defending her sister Kim Richards (again), Kyle had (another) easy season and I can’t hate on her for that. Fortunately for her, she doesn’t have too many loose ends to tie up. Luckily for us, she did share some of her opinions and insights about the show in an interview with Heather McDonald.
After a tough season last year, Lisa Vanderpump definitely turned things around this time. Well, either that, or Lisa Rinna just screwed up enough to take away from what everyone else was doing. But let’s be real, that party Vanderpump threw for the finale was immaculate and she definitely reclaimed her throne by the end of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 7.
Still, Lisa Vanderpump couldn’t resist shading LisaRinna and supporting her loyal soldier Dorit Kemsley before the season officially comes to a halt.
Still, I can’t help feeling like Lisa Rinna used her as a scapegoat in her vendetta against Kim Richards and her quest for more screen time. So I was actually pumped when Eden remembered that she has a speaking role on this show and came at Rinna during the season finale. Rinna deserved to have her ass handed to her after the crap she pulled all year. Is Eden the hero we were all hoping for this season? Maybe…
Does Lisa Rinna have something on Eileen Davidson. I get that they’ve been friends for years and know each other from the soap opera life, but Eileen is just so loyal to Rinna. There is definitely something to be admired there (kind of), but at the same time, I’m so confused.
Other than the blind loyalty to Rinna and dragging out that whole “affair” thing with Lisa Vanderpump, Eileen is the most level-headed person in the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast. So I just don’t get how she can stick by Rinna after her crusade against Kim Richards. There is no chance that Rinna actually “forgot” that she said “Kim was close to death.” I have no idea how Eileen has been defending this all season – even after watching the episodes.
I have to give props to Kyle. She knows how to play this reality TV thing to her advantage. Pretty much every cast member is always on her side and she’s in good enough favor with the audience that she can plug any project she wants, so of course she answered Andy Cohen’s questions very carefully.
