Last night on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills everyone opened up, although some people should’ve kept their mouths closed (ahem Dorit Kemsely). At least Dorit’s son Jagger knows the truth: nearly everyone is a bad guy here. Shockingly, Lisa Rinna wasn’t – she was actually OK last night.
I am so back and forth with Dorit. On the one hand I find her zany and cute; on the other I find her over-bearing and try-hard. Last week I liked her; this week NOPE to her and her phony whack-ccent, and her husband licking a $900 plate clean.
As boring as it is to see the women on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills getting along, I am very intrigued by the possible friendship forming between Dorit Kemsleyand Erika Girardi. Those two would make a very interesting alliance friendship. Other than those two moving on from last year’s panty-gate scandal, I’m not bored by everyone else hanging out and getting along.
Let’s hope that things rev up ASAP. After two episodes of shading each other, Dorit even made up with Lisa Rinna. Those two going at it was the one thing I thought I could count on this season. Apparently not.
Even though it obviously is a privilege to be a cast member on every show in the Real Housewives franchise, it can also come with a lot of drama – especially for the new girls. They aren’t going to skate through to hold the diamonds in the opening credits of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills without earning it, so they all get (at least) a little bit hazed by their costars.
With that said, it has to feel so good to get past a season as the “new girl.” It seems like Dorit Kemsley agrees with that sentiment. She spent last season going head to head with Erika Girardi (and her alter ego Erika Jayne) over a lack of panties. Even her husband PK Kemsley got involved in the arguments and earned a spot on the couch during the reunion episodes.
Erika recently revealed that she gave her husband a toilet. Yes, a toilet. That’s definitely a unique gift. Then again, I have no idea what you would give someone who can buy pretty much anything that he wants.
Beginning on a positive: Teddi had a great time in Vegas with most of the girls. “The nightclub and the pool were great opportunities to get to know the women better. I could feel genuine friendships and connections were forming and was excited about it. But with Erika, I felt like I was trying too hard without much reciprocation.”
For the most part, I can’t get enough when it comes to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. On the other hand, there’s a part of me that wants to fast forward through the first couple episodes of the season since nothing new is happening and they are still rehashing drama from last year. I would never do that because I am addicted to this show, but I do want to since I’m ready to move on to new controversies.
Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing what the ladies have been up to and their over the top discussions while they plan looks with their glam squads, but I just need more. Dorit Kemsley still can’t stand Lisa Rinna. She still wants Erika Girardi to open up to her. It’s all valid, but I just need something new to tweet about.
It’s dark and scary days as Lipsa is among them. Dorit Kemsley is afraid. What will Lipsa’s evil, vicious, devil’s tongue say next?! Will she be hiding a Blue Bunny in Kyle Richards‘ Blue Birkin? Or will she come in peace?
We got to “meet” the newest Housewife Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. She has a famous father, a very L.A. career (she’s a wellness accountability coach), and she definitely looks the part. The only thing that is a little awkward about her casting is that she wasn’t genuinely friends with anyone before she joined the show, so it will be interesting to see how she fits in with the ladies.
