These days, Kyle Richards is the major reality TV star in her family, but long before her debut on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kyle’s niece Paris Hiltonwas the queen of reality TV. Kyle used to name drop her famous nieces Paris and Nicky Hiltonduring her early seasons, but now she is a major name herself as one of the most likable Housewives.
Kyle took her daughters Sophia and Alexia Umansky to New York City to celebrate Paris Hilton’s birthday and I wish the family bonding was filmed for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, or better yet, a separate reality show that I’ve been dreaming with a focus on Kyle and her famous family. Yes, I know that Kyle already has a scripted show in the works that is “loosely based” on her childhood, but a reality show with her sisters Kathy Hilton, Kim Richards, and all their children is a show that I would love to watch. Unfortunately, no one is picking up what I’m laying down, but the famous family did document some fun times together this past week for Paris’ birthday.
At this point, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is shaping up to be Lisa Vanderpump vs. Lisa Rinna at the reunion. Sure, there are some other spats happening, but those are at the JV level. Lisa and Lisa have been taking jabs at each other in every single episode this season, in almost every interview they’ve done to promote the show, and in lots of their social media posts. These are varsity smack talkers.
When I watch Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I am intimidated by Lisa Vanderpump and there’s a television screen and two thousand miles between us. Well, that and the fact that we have never interacted in any way, shape, or form. Still, if I’m that intimidated, I can’t imagine how Lisa Rinna feels when Vanderpump throws her under the bus whenever she can.
A lot of the time Sometimes the insults are deserved. Other times they just make for great TV. For the most part Rinna is in on the joke and just laughs along with Vanderpump. For someone who can dish it out, it doesn’t seem like LVP can take it, since Rinna can’t even watch old RHOBHepisodes on Instagram story without upsetting people. Nothing she said on those Instagram stories compares to the constant barrage of insults that Rinna receives from Vanderpump. Obviously the self-proclaimed queen of the show is upset about the Instagram stories and her fellow OG cast member Kyle Richards is on her side- of course. I don’t blame anyone for not wanting to go against Lisa Vanderpump.
I am not ready for the Countess to turn into this level of a hot mess yet. Nope. Unacceptable! Alas, it sounds like Luann de Lesseps took a page out of Kim Richards’ messy playbook this week when she was arrested in Palm Beach, FL, for resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer. The Real Housewives Of New York star was allegedly highly intoxicated during the tussle, and had apparently stumbled into someone else’s hotel room – where she was “in bed with an unidentified man.” Oh, man. This is all very uncool.
Hotel security came to eject Luann and her buddy from Room 407 of the Colony hotel in Palm Beach. The couple was registered for Room 327, but had apparently wandered into the wrong room “while a maid was finishing turn down service” – so they just decided to crash there!
All of your favorite reality TV stars went all out celebrating Christmas this year and they posted the photos to prove it.
Sisters-in-law Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga had the best holiday photo which paid homage to their iconic Christmas Eve feud holding up boxes of sprinkle and pignoli cookies. I’m happy that they were able to get over that infamous argument and now I will never let go of this photo.
Lisa didn’t say anything particularly scandalous, but there were enough subtle digs and “jokes,” Andy Cohen couldn’t help bringing it up (multiple times) when Erika was one of the guests on Watch What Happens Live. Erika did her best to skate around the questions with short, vague answers accompanied by facial expressions that conveyed her true opinions, but she eventually broke and acknowledged Andy’s constant questions about LVP.
Even though Kim Richards wasn’t a “Housewife” for the last two seasons of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, all roads led to Kim. She was the constant topic of conversation whether she was a full-time cast member or not. Season 8 marks the first time that Kim will be making zero appearances on RHOBH.
She went out on top though: Kim reached a peak level of pettiness when she handed Lisa Rinna that cellophane-wrapped bunny rabbit stuffed animal during the Season 7 reunion. Sure, it wasn’t a positive moment, but it will never be forgotten. Now I just want to know what the ladies will talk about in her absence.
