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.
On last night's Watch What Happens Live, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Camille Grammer graced Andy Cohen with her presence in the clubhouse. Joining her was rocker – and Ashlee Simpson ex – Pete Wentz, who will be hosting a new tattoo competition show on Oxygen. Andy addresses the tragedy in Boston, and declares it a night where everyone needs a drink. That said, there is no drinking game word…you just drink when the word "Drink" flashes across the screen. Seems easy enough for me! The bartender is the guy who designed the logo that is Andy's face which can be found on most of the Mazel products.
Andy opens the vault to reveal two clips of Camille scantily dressed and dancing on '90's late night shows. She admits to having a breast reduction since those glory days. My, my, my! Those are some jugs. Pete compliments the current state of Camille's rack. The poll question involves Real Housewives of Orange County, and Andy wonders if Briana had the right to ban Brooks Ayers from her mother's house.
After three long years (seasons? Is that how we're counting years in reality TV time?) Camille Grammer is finally divorced! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star who lived out learning of Kelsey Grammer's cheating and then her never-ending legal and custody battles on TV, has finalized a settlement agreement with her ex.
Kelsey and Camille ended their marriage way back in 2011, but ongoing acrimony about property, monetary assets, and custody of their two children weren't worked out because both sides refusing to agree. Apparently after a year of arguing they both signed papers to divvy up their assets totaling over $60M and including three homes.
Camille Grammer is dishing on ex-husband Kelsey's recent parenting snafus as well as her holiday plans. Also, there is some fun gossip about Yolanda Foster's predecessor in David's life who apparently really, really, really wants to be on the show. It's some fun stuff, y'all!
If Camille Grammer wasn't absent from the opening credits of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I'd never believe she's been demoted to "friend" of the housewives. She's more present now than she's been in past seasons. I'm not complaining…I think Camille is hilarious.
Her divorce from Kelsey Grammer has long been finalized, but their issues with each other are still as rampant as ever. The more I hear about Kelsey and his irresponsible and arrogant ways, the happier I am I never watched Frazier. To borrow a term from Andy Cohen, he seems to be quite the jackhole. Now Kelsey has taken their parenting war to an entirely different level by not allowing his children to mention Camille when they are with him. Explain to me how that isn't hard on those poor kids!?!
What a difference a few seasons can make. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Camille Grammer knows that…perhaps like no other lady in the franchise. Pushed into doing the show by her now ex-husband Kelsey Grammer, we watched awkwardly the first season as her marriage crumbled and she butted heads with her cast mates. Let's just say she didn't make the best impression. She quickly redeemed herself in the second season. Again, I think she may be the only one in the franchise who went from being hated to a fan favorite…we all know it happens the other way around though!
Another housewife from RHOBH who seems to be gaining fandom is Brandi Glanville. She continues to build her brand while thumbing her nose at her ex-husband and his new Twitter-addict bride. Of course, the richest franchise does have some ladies who aren't winning any popularity awards among viewers. The mere mention of Taylor Armstrong's name gets some people's blood boiling…will they be fortunate enough to see her hightail it out of the zip code she worked too hard to gain? Check out some Beverly Hills gossip after the jump!
You may not agree, but I think Brandi Glanville is the spice so needed for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She's brash, she's offensive, she's everything her counterparts want to be but pretend that they're not. You add in the fact that Brandi's ex-husband Eddie Cibrian couldn't keep it in his pants, and she proceeds to run into his former mistresses throughout 90210, and you've got a great reality recipe for drama.
I know y'all recall the SUR party last season (you know, the one Cedric Martinez tried to crash, not to be confused with this season's Villa Blanca party when Adrienne Maloof sent that passive aggressive jungle arrangement to Lisa Vanderpump) when Brandi ran smack dab into SUR waitress Scheana Marie who had once gotten to know Eddie really well…if you catch my drift.
Fast forward to Scheana starring in Bravo's new Vanderfabulous spin-off Vanderpump Rules, and she's all over the media yet again for that unfortunate run in with Brandi. Of course, Brandi handled the situation with as much class as Brandi can…she did a better job than I would have expected. From previews, we know that the women will come face-to-face yet again (thanks producers!) to finally say their peace, and now media outlets are revisiting that original awkward meeting as Bravo hypes its newest reality show.
