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 RHOBH episodes 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.
When Dorit Kemsley revealed to Lisa Vanderpump that Kyle Richards got pretty emotional in front of her, Lisa did not seem pleased. In fact, she seemed pretty jealous that Kyle talked about her issues with sisters Kim Richards and Kathy Hilton over her scripted series which is “loosely based” on their family.
Lisa remarked, “It surprises me that she can be so emotional with Dorit because she doesn’t know her that well.” Her infamous “British humor” strikes again.
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.
The Season 8 premiere episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was loaded with subtle shade directed toward the one and only Erika Jayne, courtesy of Lisa Vanderpump, and her self-proclaimed “British humor.” On the bright side, Erika Girardi was spared from the insults.
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.
When Brandi Glanville left Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she had more enemies than friends. That’s why it’s not surprising that she has been very vocal about her close relationships with her former costars Kim Richards and Yolanda Hadid for the past few years.
Brandi and Kim are still in touch, but Brandi and Yolanda? Not so much. Brandi is not pleased with the opinions that Yolanda expressed in her book.
