I didn’t expect to enjoy watching Second Wives Club, but I actually do. Sure, it’s no Real Housewives, but I like it and a major part of that is attributed to Shiva Safai. It’s a little surprising though since she’s a classy voice of reason, but she manages to entertain without being mean or wild.
When Scheana Marie and Mike Shay’s separation was announced right before the last Vanderpump Rules premiere, I couldn’t help watching every episode with a bit of analysis. Whether Shay was in a scene or not, I couldn’t help reading into every single thing with the current knowledge that they were going through a divorce.
Weirdly enough, Jax Taylor was right when he said that he had “milk with a longer shelf life than that marriage.” Most viewers felt bad for Scheana after learning that Shay just left and drained all of their money, but there’s also a good amount of fans that felt like Scheana was putting up a front about how good the marriage actually was. Scheana explained why she lied about her relationship and Shay’s philandering and how she even planned out their “story line” before the show actually started.
Based on the footage shown, Eden Sassoon contributed nothing valuable to this Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season. To be fair, this was due to some major misdirection from Lisa Rinna, but she definitely didn’t handle any of that well. I am not going to belabor that whole thing though. To paraphrase Erika Jayne, Eden is (finally) saying “important shit instead of boring shit.”
I can’t verify if this shit is accurate, but I can say that Eden hasn’t learned a lesson when it comes to diagnosing people with substance abuse issues. This time she’s calling out Dorit Kemsley and it’s not for (allegedly) doing cocaine in the bathroom in the middle of a dinner party.
If I could be anyone on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it would be Kyle Richards. She is an OG cast member. She is on good terms with everyone and is bringing in the cash with all of her side ventures. She definitely has the best thing going for her out of everyone in this cast.
Aside from defending her sister Kim Richards (again), Kyle had (another) easy season and I can’t hate on her for that. Fortunately for her, she doesn’t have too many loose ends to tie up. Luckily for us, she did share some of her opinions and insights about the show in an interview with Heather McDonald.
Even though Kyle Richards is a cast member in a reality TV franchise called Real Housewives, she is oddly in the minority since a lot of the stars in the franchise aren’t even wives. Kyle and Mauricio Umansky seem to have a very solid relationship and they’re not even annoying about it…. minus the constant plugs for The Agency that I could do without.
Kyle recently opened up about the very beginning of her relationship with her husband Mauricio, why she would never do Dancing With the Stars, and how she said no a million times to doing Celebrity Apprentice, but ended up caving to join the cast anyway.
Everyone who watches Vanderpump Rules cannot help wondering about the identity of Lala Kent’s secret boyfriend. There are so many rumors about her being a sugar baby and dating a married man who might be a movie producer or an NFL player. I just wish she would post one photo on Instagram so we can stop guessing, but I get why she would want some privacy.
Still, I feel like having James Kennedy sign that nondisclosure agreement was a little much. Not only that, but I really can’t see James complying with those guidelines. Lala is adamant about keeping her man’s identity a secret, but she did share some key details recently.
I thought Lala Kent was done with Vanderpump Rules, but not (it seems like) she is back. Whether she will back next season or not is unclear, but Lala is someone that the whole cast loves to talk about. I never thought I would see any sort of tension with Lala and James Kennedy. I assumed that had to stick together as the two outsiders of the cast, but the two have had some ups and downs.
Are they really friends? Friends of convenience? Are they just reality show costars? Lala clarified their friendship status and even opened up about that one time she hooked up with James.
