Season 8 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills just ended (thankfully), but Erika Jayne isn’t taking much time off. She already has several new projects in the works and they both focus on her sharing her opinions. No catsuit and lube here- or at least it’s not her anticipated wardrobe choice.
After a rather drama-free season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, it’s not surprising that the secrets revealed last night were less than exciting – and had mostly to do with teenagers behaving badly and the mothers who worry about them.
Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave‘s husband Edwin is giving Mauricio a run for his money in the real estate game! Either that or Edwin’s been watching Million Dollar Listing for some advice on how to win a bidding war on multi-million dollar homes, because after stalking the builders of his neighbor’s house, he badgered, harassed, and harangued them into taking $2 million less for the property just to get rid of him. They need security for the security guy!
Teddi is thrilled with the new home – at a discount price. Not so successful was Edwin’s buying a new Lambo with the money he saved. Teddi does not like things that go fast unless they’re one night stands which lead to the altar. Or cardio classes. And horsepower belongs on four-legged friends with mane and tail.
Um, I wouldn’t pay $2.99 to fulfill my husband’s midlife crisis, let alone $299,000. Edwin is a lucky guy!
Normally I’m sad when a Real Housewives season comes to an end. That is not how I feel about Season 8 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills wrapping up. It was easily the most boring, least enjoyable, and overall worst season in the show’s history.
Essentially nothing happened, but they still managed to drag out the reunion into three different episodes. Now, we are so close to putting that dismal season behind us.
During her first season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Erika Girardi and her alter ego Erika Jayne became instant fan favorites. The viewers could not help being intrigued by her double life as a lawyer’s wife during the day and a club singer at night. Then the line between Erika Girardi and Erika Jayne started to blur and she was accused of being “cold” by Lisa Vanderpump, Dorit Kemsley, and plenty of viewers.
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 Arroyave after 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 Dorit Kemsley 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.
