She didn’t wear panties during one episode and it became the focal point of her second season and she went toe to toe with “villain” Dorit. For the most part, the fandom sided with Erika, but her third season was a whole different situation. She snapped at new girl Teddi Mellencamp Arroyaveafter she accused Erika of having “pretend amnesia,” but it wasn’t the first time the fans saw Erika lose her cool. She unleashed on close friend Eileen Davidson in Hong Kong for no reason. Short story long, Erika definitely lost her universal appeal with the fandom. So what does this mean for her future on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Is she done with the show?
Last night was part 3 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion. Which means this season of interminable squabbles about protocol and etiquette at the queen’s court of public opinion, an unintentional farce from the court jester, is over. Thank you Dorit Kemsley for your tragicomic contributions to Reality TV – we salute you with a beer stein filled with cheap champagne.
So last night the ladies of Beverly Hills trotted out their plethora of headache-inducing shiny dresses for the last time to bicker over such impotent social slights as who talks about themselves the most (the answer: always and forever Kyle Richards) and the definition of a liar. For the record, I really dislike recapping reunions. It’s like following a verbal tennis game and I always want to activate closed captioning on my TV to catch all the shady little barbs, except I don’t actually know how to turn that on. Maybe that’s a good thing?
Is there a reason the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion is three parts? A good portion of last night was more footage of the ladies doing lunch, albeit backstage where they continued talking about each other’s low-level dramas.
As much as I enjoy watching Lisa Vanderpump sitting around in her bathroom eating salad while counseling DoritKemsley through perceived slights against Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, it’s evident that this was filler so Bravo could bilk another episode out of the rather lackluster reunion. I’m in the minority, apparently, in not minding that the drama was mostly surface and petty – it’s a nice breather from such heavy seasons about substance abuse and serious family dysfunction (I mean I love that too), but I certainly think they could’ve gotten away with a two-part reunion.
Unfortunately, there really isn’t much to discuss when it comes to Season 8 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. We are all just waiting for the reunion to wrap up and hoping that some casting changes are made for Season 9.
One person who doesn’t mind the lack of drama this season is OG cast member Kyle Richards. It’s understandable that she would want a less stressful filming experience, but is it worth it when the viewers are very vocal about their lack of interest in this show? Just scroll through Twitter on Tuesday nights and you’ll see the word “boring” multiple times in response to every episode this season.
Say what you want about James Kennedy, but no one can deny that he always brings the entertainment on Vanderpump Rules. The self-proclaimed “White Kanye West” is constantly defending himself from cheating accusations, blessing the fandom with original music, or saying something hilarious.
James opened up about which Real Housewivescast members he would collaborate with and his thoughts on all of the major story lines this season on Vanderpump Rules.
There’s no doubt about it: Season 8 has been the worst season in the history of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Nothing really happened. The slightest issues got dragged out for multiple episodes. It is essentially a lifestyle documentary merged with an infomercial to promote the women’s various business ventures.
No one blames the women capitalizing on the reality TV franchise for self-promotion, but they could at least balance some of that out with an actual story line or two. Unfortunately, all we got were arguments about glassware and tardiness. Yawn. On top of that, a lot of the viewers think that queen Erika Jayne has fallen from grace- especially after she lashed out at Teddi Mellencamp Arroyavefor accusing her of having “fake amnesia.” No one wants to be accused of lying- especially on a reality TV show- so it makes sense that Erika was very upset, but her reaction was just way over the top.
On television, most reality TV stars are focused on the drama, which makes perfect sense it’s a job, but in real life most of your favorite reality TV stars are all about the family time. Or at least that’s what they’re sharing on Instagram these days.
Former New Jersey Housewife Caroline Manzo spent quality time with her granddaughter Marchesa- a photo that she decided to caption with some Kanye West lyrics, which is very unexpected to say the least. Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizziand her two kids had a dance party with Mickey Mouse.
I have so many thoughts on last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion, but the thing I am most excited to discuss – the thing I’ve been waiting to talk about ALL WEEK – is Lisa Rinna‘s hair. It sort of looked like a mop head, no? But it was extreme soap opera and combined with the dress Lipsa obviously decided to bring what she lacked all season, pulling ‘SASSY LISA RINNA’ out of her duster pocket and lettin’er rip. So f–k you, Jeremy! And shut up Lisa Vanderpump.
These girls were quite petty last night, were they not? Like Erika Girardi seriously trying to shade John Mellencamp over a joke made by Andy Cohen that they should collaborate. She’s just bitter that her music will never actually be considered music. (She’s a peeeerrrrrrfffffoooormer). Why can’t Erika ever take a joke?! Insecure much.
