With so many great reality shows back with new episodes this week and others that are filming for the next season, it makes sense that a lot of reality TV stars are sharing behind-the-scenes photos.
New York Housewife Tinsley Mortimer finally cut her signature hair, so of course she shared a photo of getting all glammed up with her new look. Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels shared a photo of her hair and makeup team getting her ready to throw shade during some on-camera interviews this season. Orange County Housewife Shannon Beador also posted a photo of her glam squad in action. Southern Charmstar Shep Rose shared a photo of he and Whitney Sudler-Smith in front of a green screen in between shooting some commentary on the current season.
Oh, Berlin with the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. It actually wasn’t a bad trip if you ignore the weird, fantastical, messy veal tartare of an argument Dorit Kemsley tried to throw at Kyle Richards. Why can’t these women just ever have fun eating food… it’s like if they start a fight they won’t have time to consume the calories?
Yet for the most part everyone had fun and got along. Prost to that! (Cheers in German. Thanks Google)
First the women either went shopping or spent 4+ hours ordering lattes in German. Kyle, Lisa Rinna and TeddiMellencamp Arroyave are afraid they’ll be forced into consuming whole milk and sugar by language barriers. Like the Germans are some primitive people never exposed to modern things like – gasp – ALMOND MILK. Or fat-free milk! I think the menus were actually written in cave drawings and ‘hoople hop ooper mandopippitidy peep pop poopio’ or whatever ever it is Lipsa ordered was actually dehydrated wild buffalo penis. You never know with these newly discovered civilizations! I mean … pretzels?
Unlike some rookie Housewives, Erika Jayne slayed her first season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. On her second season, she went up against Dorit Kemsley over the never-ending pantygate story line and most of the viewers were on her side. During that same season, Erika also flipped out against her good friend Eileen Davidson for no discernible reason, which was not something most viewers could get behind.
This season, Erika made up with Dorit, but now she’s butting heads with new girl Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave at every turn. She snapped at Teddi when she innocently asked about her father. She snapped at Teddi for accusing her of having “pretend amnesia,” which is understandable, but her reaction was definitely over the top. Of course, there are many Erika fanatics, but the tides have definitely turned this season, at least a little bit. There are a lot of people siding with Teddi. So what did Erika think going into the Season 8 reunion?
Congrats are in order: Erika Jayne’s new book, “Pretty Mess,” just hit the New York Times Best Sellers list!
Erika Jayne shared on social media, “My pretties, we did it!!! #PrettyMess made it to the NY Times Best Sellers! I couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you If you haven’t purchased your copy of #PrettyMess get it now.”
Last night was a good episode of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. There was no particular reason – it wasn’t filled to the brim with drama, but it showcased the women in their elements and was filled with some real moments like Kyle Richards ultimate friendship faux pas. Excitingly we also got a lot of background information on Lisa Vanderpump, plus DoritKemsley almost overdosed (kinda, sorta) on flu medication which was hilariously so Dorit. (Yes, I’m a sadist). However the big exciting news was their trip to Berlin.
Unfortunately there is more bad news for Lisa and Ken. Days after losing Pink Dog unexpectedly, Pikachu passed away. Now Lisa is worried for the fate of all her dogs. She looks them over, this mountain of fluffery and docility, she decides each needs to be installed with a tracking device and cloned straight away. It’s what Nanny Kay would recommend after all! And she was a woman of sense; a medic during WWII who survived The Blitz, and then, in her elder years, moved with Lisa and Ken to LA when they opened their first restaurant there – a PIZZA JOINT in the Sherman Oaks Mall. So, Lisa did live in The Valley?
Obviously there are a lot of people who are going to adore Erika no matter what. There is a lot to like: she has an intriguing double life, she says hilarious things during her on-camera interviews, and she has such an over the top sense of style. The list goes on and on, but it is tough to watch her snapping at Teddi over and over again, when it appears to be unprovoked. Obviously none of the viewers know every single word exchanged between the two of them, but based on the episodes alone, Erika’s interactions with Teddi have been less than flattering- and that’s putting it nicely.
