On last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills people were celebrating all sorts of things and this required lingerie shopping, candles that looked like cupcakes, and wearing giant garbage bags to take naps in. The biggest news, however, was that based upon the strength of her perfect gift-giving, Lisa Vanderpump chose a new court favorite. Teddi Bear Mellencamp Arroyave – you have arrived! Elevated to the premiere spot as Lisa’s mean girl in waiting. Meanwhile it was off with Dorit Kemsley‘s head! Or at least one of her ridiculous hairstyles.
Somehow I think Teddi will learn from Kyle Richards and Dorit, and won’t make the mistake of double-crossing Lisa… Doing all she can to stay in good graces. After all, Teddi is all about accountability and we finally got a glimpse of what that entails. Essentially Teddi is a diet and exercise baby-sitter. Rich people will buy anything!
Before Dorit became a Housewife she was a swimwear designer and now she’s back at it with a new line. We all saw that business meeting (before she was late for drinks with Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave) where she proclaimed that “red is having a moment” right now. Apparently it wasn’t that big of a moment since the line is lacking some bright, red swimwear at the moment. Nevertheless, she does have some pieces inspired by her time on the show.
Right from the jump, Erika Girardi and her alter ego Erika Jayne, killed it during that rookie season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Aside from entertaining us all with her catsuits and dance moves, Erika had the audacity to call out OG cast member Lisa Vanderpump as a “sniper from the side,” something the seasoned Housewives would never be brave enough to do.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has turned into the Erika Jayne show and I cannot imagine that sits well with Lisa Vanderpumpand her mini horses, swans, and her many dogs. Erika has never and will never bow down to Vanderpump or choose to be one of her (many) sidekicks. Erika’s girl Lisa Rinna explained why Erika has been able to escape Vanderpump manipulation.
Sigh. Does no one understand Kyle Richards? It is so hard to be Kyle Richards. She is the most loyalist, kindest, most sincerest, genuinest, funnest, friendest friend on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills but no one appreciates her. Especially not Lisa Vanderpump, who quite literally could hand Kyle her heart on a silver platter and Kyle would insist Lisa was lying while actually giving her a dog turd. OK maaaaaaybe that’s a bit dramatic, because LVP can also be frigid and oblique, but last night she really did, in her own way, hand Kyle her heart. Let’s see what Kyle does with it!
Erika even cleared the air with Kyle, so the two of them are all good. Erika had a pretty easy time last episode. She met with her book publisher and she wasn’t at the center of the drama. Instead, she provided the fandom with some solid GIF and meme material when she leaned back to apply her lip gloss while Kyle and Teddi argued with Dorit.
Even though this is only Dorit Kemsley’s second season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the show has turned into The Dorit Show. Almost every story line this season starts with Dorit stirring the pot and twisting up information. As frustrating as she’s been, she has been the driving force behind this season. Let’s be honest: if it wasn’t for Dorit, there would be nothing to talk about.
One person who is so not here for Dorit’s nonsense is Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. I completely understand, but if I was Teddi, I would be grateful to have Dorit as an enemy because it means I would win every single poll on Watch What Happens Live and almost every viewer would be on my side.
Now, Camille is done holding back and she is here to shade Dorit and put her in check, unlike Lisa Vanderpump who is under Dorit’s faux British spell. Even Kyle Richards was on board with Dorit at first, until she got caught in the cross hairs herself. Just like Erika Girardi, Camille has seen through all the bull shit that Dorit brings to the table and she’s not afraid to call her out.
As irritating as Dorit Kemsley has been this season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she is the driving force behind almost every interesting story line. I have no idea why she would try so hard to stir the pot since it really isn’t a good look for her, but apparently she doesn’t even care. Ultimately, I bet that none of the other cast members are too bothered by it since anyone she offends always ends up on the “right” side of history and curries favor with the viewers.
