The franchise may be called Real Housewives, but in actuality a lot of these ladies are not even wives. In fact, viewers got to see many marriages fall apart in front of the reality TV cameras.
There are some former couples that were just too annoying to watch. I felt a vicarious sense of relief when these people split up. Then there were other splits that I just never saw coming and felt weirdly sad about. Sadly, there have been a lot of Real Housewives breakups over the years.
When asked about Eileen confessing to being in an abusive relationship in the past, Camille, a victim of domestic abuse as well, shares, “I was very moved by her openness. I applaud her for speaking out.”
Kyle admits that she was surprised by Eileen‘s revelation, explaining, “It sort of came out of the blue. We’ve all been getting closer and closer with time. We were there, having fun and relaxing, and the next thing you know that came out. I know it was very difficult for her and she had a little bit of anxiety about it, but it was really brave of her to say that.”
The reality star hasn't remained mum on her scary situation. Camille has taken out a restraining order against Dimitri, voiced her anger on Twitter, and now she's appeared on daytime television to talk about her experiences. Good for you, girl. No need to sweep anything under the rug!
It's a hard life when you're Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Kyle Richards. Doing a reality show for Bravo isn't easy, and being put in the middle of your friends' drama (when you've never wanted to be in the center of it–EVER) makes things difficult.
Thankfully, Kyle has learned to cope with her feelings by talking to any media outlet that will listen. For Kyle, the reunion was especially contentious…one might even call it "torture." Well, Kyle calls it torture, so there's that. Woe is Splits!
As you know, I'll be sharing some Watch What Happens Live posts sporadically throughout the week, and for Monday's show, I was in full recap mode. For last night's episode, I tried to go less recap/more highlight reel to see which style our wonderful readers prefer. Please sound off with your opinions in the comments section!
Andy Cohen's guests last night were former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak Biermann and Tony award winner and writer Harvey Fierstein. The leading lady of Harvey's Broadway hit Kinky Boots is the bartender. Harvey thinks Kim's hair is real (um, does he need glasses?), clarifying, if she bought it, it's really hers. Fair enough. If I close my eyes and just listen to Harvey's voice, I can easily picture Big Ang from Mob Wives!
The drinking game alert is "boots" (said thirty times throughout the show!), and we learn that Kim keeps all her old pregnancy tests. Ew.
