Eileen Davidson admits she was shocked when Lisa Rinna finally confided the truth to her on this week’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. But she stands by her belief that her ally never “lied” about the truth – she simply didn’t remember until producers showed her the tape. Now that she has come clean with Kim Richards about her comments that Kim was not totally sober and was potentially near death, Eileen thinks Rinna deserves a break.
Eileen jokes, “It was a week of caviar, cheesecake and coming clean!” Before breaking down Rinna’s confession in her blog, she takes a moment to gush about Erika Girardi’s acting skills. “Erika continues to prove her acting chops. I’ve seen her read a few times now, and she always crushes it. Vinny joked that he wanted to manage Erika…not so fast, Vin! I discovered her first!”
As a self-proclaimed Real Housewives historian, I can’t think of any new cast member that has been as poorly received as Eden Sassoon has been. She has had no story line on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills other than inserting herself in Kyle Richards’s relationship with her sister Kim Richards and questioning Kim’s sobriety – over and over again. Now Eden is claiming the Richards sister “tossed around” her deceased sister Catya‘s name.
This sobriety thing is obviously the last thing the Richards sisters want to talk about in regard to their own relationship and in general. Neither of them has ever mentioned Eden’s dead sister on the show, yet Eden is pulling the victim card and claiming that Kyle and Kim of all people are being insensitive toward her. Really? Is she not watching the same show that I am?
We THOUGHT Kim Richards and Lisa Rinna had agreed to move on and stop dwelling on the past, buuuut, apparently not. Well, at least Kim hasn’t.
Living up to her nickname “Rambles,” Kim went on an epic twitter rampage about this week’s episode of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, where Kim called Lisa a liar and phony and accused Eden Sassoon of using her (and everyone else she knows) for a storyline and being a bad sober person. Just in case you were wondering, Kim still accepts NO responsibility for the issues she and Lisa have had. You can read our recap of the episode here.
Now that she’s fessed up, Rinna says she’s DONE! She’s done talking about Kim, done with questioning her sobriety, and done with the “not remembering” shtick – let’s hope. Rinna claims, “Kim and I have finally made amends, owned up to what we have said and done to one another, and have made a mutual commitment to move away from the negativity once and for all.”
Was last night Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills horror story, or what?! A witch hunt! Gossip that comes back to haunt. The poltergeist that refuses to be exorcised. Mini cheesecakes that stalk through the night! The Twisted Sisters Richards back for revenge. The zombie audience of collected Housewives shaking from sugar, desperate to feast on the UN-Botoxed remains of low-carb brain. And Carnie Wilson (!) returns from the dead as a really good counselor.
Anyway, Lisa Rinna fessed-up, owned it, or whatever you want to call it. I have to say that I’m proud of her. It’s not easy to face down Kim Richards‘ demons and live to tell about it.
This week, Rinna points the finger at Kyle Richards for keeping the gossip train going – apparently, because she told her sister, Kim, what Rinna said about her. Also, because Rinna has no more people left to point fingers at. Ladies and gentlemen, The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills has entered a new dimension of circular logic: The Rinna Dimension. Come with me on a bumpy ride through her blog…
Unfortunately for Kyle Richards, she doesn’t get to watch the video footage that the viewers have seen of Lisa Rinna feeding Eden with “alternative facts” about Kyle’s relationship with Kim Richards. Kyle has had to piece this puzzle together on her own and use her personal judgment to figure out who said what when it comes to those enabling accusations that Eden has been spreading. Yes, we all know she got that version of the story straight from Rinna, but at this point in the episodes, Kyle is trying to figure things out, Eden is trying to explain where she’s coming from, and Rinna is doing her best to pretend that she has Alzheimer’s.
