Happy Friday the 13th! It’s time to see what our favorite reality TV people have been up to when they’re not gracing us with their on-screen presence. Ariana Madix headed to Kentucky with her Vanderpump Rules co-stars Tom Sandoval, Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylorfor the 6th Annual Fillies & Stallions Kentucky Derby party.
Also getting fancy for a formal event: Kyle Richards and husband Mauricio Umansky. They, along with Faye Resnick, Kathy Hilton and Paris Hilton, attended the AltaMed Power Up, We Are The Future Gala at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons.
I don’t know what I would do if it wasn’t for the Real Housewives franchise. I have watched every episode of every season in every city multiple times, no matter how I feel about the content. With that said, this season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has definitely been its worst – by far. As much as I love these ladies, there are so many reasons why Season 6 of RHOBH has been its worst. No matter how much I stan for this show, I cannot deny this. And I’m sure that I’m not the only one wishing for a redo on this one.
Typically, RHOBH is chock full of story lines, but this season just dragged on and on. Don’t get me wrong, I still watched every episode a million times, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I usually do. And this is something that made me sad. Hopefully someone at Bravo who has some power is reading this right now and will do what they can to avoid these same mistakes next season.
Kyle admits she doesn’t like to talk about Kim aroundLisa Rinna. “She’s had problems with Kim so that’s why it’s uncomfortable for me to speak about anything regarding Kim with Lisa Rinna. They left off so badly that I don’t feel comfortable talking about Kim with her. It makes me feel guilty.”
Lisa snarked, “So, here we are in the kitchen of my disco, aka Villa Rosa. Kyle comes to pick me up, we are jovial and tease each other, which is the foundation of our friendship, but I was eager to resolve the issue regarding the invitation of FayeResnick to the barbecue at her house the week previously.”
The newest addition to RHOBH, Kathryn prides herself on being honest and says she’ll always “‘have the balls’ to speak the truth.” And if she’s not quite done holding a grudge against Faye, well…she’s in good company: Lisa Vanderpump is still not over Fayecoming for her at her anniversary party three years ago (nor should she be, in my opinion!).
Other than fishnets on ladies of a certain age, the drama centered aroundYolanda Foster‘s Lyme Disease and Faye Resnick‘s polarizing existence. Two subjects I do not care about one bit!
Kyle and Lisa Vanderpump are throwing a burlesque party, to celebrate their joint anniversaries. Kyle and Lisa are cute together. Even when they’re bickering. Lisa withholds sugar from Kyle’s tea as punishment for Kyle springing Faye on her. Kyle teases back that Lisa is holding a grudge. Later Lisa attempts to snoop through Kyle’s phone to see if she and Faye have been talking about her, but it’s all in fun. Quite simply, Lisa doesn’t want the “orangutan” that is Faye – and Faye is very orange in hue no thanks to the most curious spray tan color ever seen. Does she ask the airbrusher to tint her “highlighter orange”? Or possibly “Orange Julius”? Whatever’s happening – that ain’t sunkisst!
The venue for the party is a speakeasy style hotel, and it’s fabulous. Even the looming presence Faye can’t tint Lisa’s excitement.
In defense of Faye, Kyle insists everyone should just let go of the past and see Faye for the amazing and lovely woman she is today. “Faye is an easy target and always pre-judged. If people actually met her, they would be surprised,” protests Kyle. “I have always been a good judge of character and would not have had this person in my life this many years if she weren’t the person that she is.”
This week’s episode ofThe Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsdidn’t seem all that dramatic on the surface, but really, a lot went down in that short bit of time. Lisa Vanderpump is sorry but maybe not quite THAT sorry for things she said. She is speaking out tonight to defend her reasons for revealing what Mohamed Hadid sorta, kinda disclosed about Bella and Anwar’s Lyme disease diagnosis. She wishes she could take it back, but..Reality TV.
Lisa believes the topic wasn’t “off the table” since Yolanda Foster herself is the one who announced to the world that Bella and Anwar had the disease. So, that part she isn’t sorry for – all topics are fair game when you sign on for reality TV. “On the subject regarding Lyme disease, I can’t stress this enough: I believe when we initiate conversation on a reality show, whether inadvertently or not, we open the doors for discussion. I have initiated sensitive subjects myself, with regard to my children, for one… Max’s adoption, with the full understanding that as cameras were documenting this, it would be flung into a forum where many would speculate. It was a conscious choice, so people would gain a better understanding of our family dynamic.”
