Dorit Kemsley may be one of the newest additions on The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, but she seems to have learned the housewives diplomacy game quickly (Eden Sassoon, take note!). As evidence, her blog this week praises her allies and subtly shades her frenemies, yet doesn’t quite come out and accuse anyone of anything. Is Dorit playing fake politics? Or just playing it safe – and smart?
Eden has insisted over and over again that she was only “acting from a place of concern” since she can relate to Kim and Kyle’s dynamic since she is a sober woman whose her sister died from an overdose. On top of that, she was acting based on what Rinna told her instead of making decisions based on her own interactions with Kim and Kyle. Eden has not had a great reception from the RHOBHfandom, so it’s only natural that she would want to defend herself. But it’s definitely going to be an uphill battle for her…
After apologizing for not blogging last week, Lisa launches into her thoughts on Rinna “owning it” this week. She begins, “Now let us begin to understand exactly what has transpired here as we delve into the complicated scenario that we have witnessed, the murky quagmire, where truth is scant on the ground.”
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.
