Ramona Singer with Wine

In the wake of Luann de Lessepstrip to rehab, former (and present) stars of Real Housewives Of New York and other franchises are speaking out about the producers’ tactics to allegedly push alcohol on the women in an effort to solicit big drama. This accusation is nothing new, but the details are quite illuminating and provide an interesting testimony for the behind-the-scenes workings of the show.

Spurned Housewives Aviva Drescher and Kelly Bensimon tell their stories, with tidbits added from Heather Thomson (who quit the show), Gretchen Rossi, and others about their experiences.

Aviva, known for the infamous prosthetic leg toss on the finale of season 6, was part of the RHONY cast reboot after season 4 and appeared on the show for two seasons (“writer girl“). Kelly, obviously, is notorious for her feuds with Bethenny Frankel culminating in Scary Island. Both women, along with some current housewives who chose to remain anonymous, claim there is a vested interest to push booze on the cast – even if it’s clearly against their best interest.

Kyle Richards Discusses Erika Jayne’s Behavior At The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Reunion

As thankful as we all most of us are that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 is over,  most of the viewers do miss the Housewives themselves. Thankfully Kyle Richards has a scripted show to promote and appeared on Watch What Happens Live last night.

Of course she talked about the Beverly Hills reunion, but she was also asked to weigh in on the Bethenny Frankel vs. Carole Radziwill feud. Kyle has been friends with Bethenny for over 25 years, so she does have a lot of insight when it comes to the Skinnygirl founder.

It is so tough to follow the changing dynamics on reality TV shows. Cast members go from best friends to enemies in the matter of an episode. Not only that, but these shows are usually filmed months before the episodes actually air. Thankfully we have social media to help keep us up to date on who is getting along these days.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Brandi Glanville shared a photo of her son with Kim Richards. She even referred to Kim as “Auntie Kim,” so it’s clear that these two are still very close. If only they both would return to the show to save us from another boring season.

Unfortunately, there really isn’t much to discuss when it comes to Season 8 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. We are all just waiting for the reunion to wrap up and hoping that some casting changes are made for Season 9.

One person who doesn’t mind the lack of drama this season is OG cast member Kyle Richards. It’s understandable that she would want a less stressful filming experience, but is it worth it when the viewers are very vocal about their lack of interest in this show? Just scroll through Twitter on Tuesday nights and you’ll see the word “boring” multiple times in response to every episode this season.

On television, most reality TV stars are focused on the drama, which makes perfect sense it’s a job, but in real life most of your favorite reality TV stars are all about the family time. Or at least that’s what they’re sharing on Instagram these days.

Former New Jersey Housewife Caroline Manzo spent quality time with her granddaughter Marchesa- a photo that she decided to caption with some Kanye West lyrics, which is very unexpected to say the least. Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her two kids had a dance party with Mickey Mouse.

Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Cast Appears On Watch What Happens Live

Even though the current season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is a bit sub-par, every cast member was on her game when all of the ladies appeared on Watch What Happens Live. If only they were this entertaining during the actual season…

Erika Jayne, Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley, Lisa Rinna, and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave all joined Andy Cohen for a special Los Angeles episode of Watch What Happens Live. The only one was missing was “Friend of the Housewives” Camille Grammer.

Kim Richards Finally Settles Dog Bite Case With Former Stylist

One of the most controversial characters to appear on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills isn’t even a person, it’s Kim Richards’ vicious dog Kingsley. The dog has caused more drama for Kim than most of the cast members have.

Kim has been sued thanks to Kingsley’s ratchet behavior many times. Kingsley even bit one of Kyle Richards’ daughters, forcing her to be hospitalized. Adding to the laundry list of Kingsley-instigated drama: Kim’s former stylist sued Kim and Kyle after Kingsley bit her.

Even though Kim Richards hasn’t been a full-time cast member on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for a years, she still has a fair share of drama in her life.

This time Kim’s issues have nothing to do with her dog Kingsley or her struggles with sobriety. The former Real Housewife some unpaid taxes to contend with.
