Lisa Vanderpump Teases That “Things Rapidly Change” With The Arrival Of Te

Not much happened during the Season 8 premiere episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but it was glorious to see the ladies from the 90210 back in their element, living lavishly and throwing shade.

Lisa Vanderpump made sure to remind us all that she is an OG cast member and the queen of the show. Her tag line alluded to this (yet again): “The queen of diamonds always has an ace up her sleeve.” She also had some shady comments up her sleeve, but she was very subtle with her delivery. She really is a pro at this.

The Season 8 premiere episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was loaded with subtle shade directed toward the one and only Erika Jayne, courtesy of Lisa Vanderpump, and her self-proclaimed “British humor.” On the bright side, Erika Girardi was spared from the insults.

Lisa didn’t say anything particularly scandalous, but there were enough subtle digs and “jokes,” Andy Cohen couldn’t help bringing it up (multiple times) when Erika was one of the guests on Watch What Happens Live. Erika did her best to skate around the questions with short, vague answers accompanied by facial expressions that conveyed her true opinions, but she eventually broke and acknowledged Andy’s constant questions about LVP.

Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Erika Girardi, & Camille Grammer Discuss The First Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Season Without Kim Richards

Even though Kim Richards wasn’t a “Housewife” for the last two seasons of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, all roads led to Kim. She was the constant topic of conversation whether she was a full-time cast member or not. Season 8 marks the first time that Kim will be making zero appearances on RHOBH.

She went out on top though: Kim reached a peak level of pettiness when she handed Lisa Rinna that cellophane-wrapped bunny rabbit stuffed animal during the Season 7 reunion. Sure, it wasn’t a positive moment, but it will never be forgotten. Now I just want to know what the ladies will talk about in her absence.

RHOBH season 8 premiere

YAY! The best holiday gift ever is Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills being back. Lisa Vanderpump bring your diamonds… oh, and also the ace from your Birkin, because we have much to discuss.

One thing I love about this show is that I can always expect Kyle Richards to be not only badly and unfortunately dressed (what is she thinking with all these muumuu-sized sleeves – just wear a kaftan already!), but also grasping for acceptance. Only Kyle would get excited about swinging a Birkin around years after everyone has gotten over them. And yes, it’s a lovely color, and it’s still obviously an extremely expensive bag, but girl, just like we have MOVED ON from Kim Richards drama, we have moved on from Birkin worship. Except Kyle has done neither. We do not need an opening episode that drags Rambles up from the dregs, but apparently Kyle thinks we do.

The Real Housewives taglines are a huge deal. Anything short of iconic just isn’t good enough. With so many cities, Housewives, and seasons, it is tough to be original these days. Even so, the pressure increases each season.

Season 8 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premieres tonight, but the taglines have already been released. Some of the ladies really hit the mark and others not so much…

Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump

Even though they’ve been through a lot throughout on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards have had a pretty steady (and loyal) relationship for the past couple seasons. As the only original cast members left on the show, it make sense that they would stick together.

Unfortunately, that is not what we will see when RHOBH returns for Season 8. Both OG’s discuss the strain on their friendship and where they stand today.

Erika calls PK

After a pretty breezy first season, Erika Girardi faced some obstacles during her second round on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. With her third season coming up, Erika (and her alter ego Erika Jayne) knows what she’s in for and how to handle the drama.

Erika’s even opening up a little bit more beyond the catsuits and glam squad. Last season, Erika brought the camera crew home to visit her mother. Now she’s discussing that and sharing her advice for anyone else who wants to be a Real Housewife.

Tomorrow is the big day: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 8 premieres and we can’t wait for it! The cast got together in West Hollywood last night to celebrate the return of their show.

Hitting the red carpet were our favorite OG cast members: Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump and Camille Grammer. They were joined by returning co-stars Erika Girardi, Dorit Kemsley, Lisa Rinna and newcomer Teddi Mellencamp. A few of the RHOBH husbands hit the red carpet with their wives: Mauricio Umansky, Edwin Arroyave and Camille’s fiance, David C. Meyer.
