I completely understand that Kim had to take care of herself and focus on her sobriety and other personal matters, but she did take part in a reality show on Lifetime – Mother/Daughter Experiment – which makes me think that reality TV is not out of the question in a more general sense. With that said, there are plenty of reasons why RHOBH needs Kim back on the show.
To be honest with you, this really was the worst season of RHOBH due to this one constantly repeated story line. Nevertheless, it did bring some bits of side drama and good amount of it involved Lisa in some shape or form. Well, Lisa is “owning” all of her actions this season and issuing apologies. This is a lot more than most of the other women from Real Housewives could ever manage to muster. Lisa “owned” up to everything in her Bravo blog reacting to the final reunion episode.
I don’t know what I would do if it wasn’t for the Real Housewives franchise. I have watched every episode of every season in every city multiple times, no matter how I feel about the content. With that said, this season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has definitely been its worst – by far. As much as I love these ladies, there are so many reasons why Season 6 of RHOBH has been its worst. No matter how much I stan for this show, I cannot deny this. And I’m sure that I’m not the only one wishing for a redo on this one.
Typically, RHOBH is chock full of story lines, but this season just dragged on and on. Don’t get me wrong, I still watched every episode a million times, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I usually do. And this is something that made me sad. Hopefully someone at Bravo who has some power is reading this right now and will do what they can to avoid these same mistakes next season.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Apparently, TMZ didn’t get the memo that Kim‘s recovery is private, because they went and shared that bit of breaking news with the world. Somewhere, theReal Housewives of Beverly Hills star hissed, “Shut your f-ing mouth, TMZ! I’ve had enough of you, you beast!”
Kim Richards may not have been a regular Real Housewives of Beverly Hillscast member this season, but she wanted to share her thoughts on this week’s reunion episode. Kim shared her joy over her upcoming grandchild and also gave her take on Lisa Rinna’s behavior – and more – this season.
“I want to start by saying thank you all for all the love, prayers and encouragement that you showed Monty and my family over these last two years.” Kim misses him immensely, “but he has given me a new strength I never even knew!” Another thing that is giving Kim motivation and strength? The news that she’s going to be a grandma! “By now I’m sure you’ve heard the news that I am going to be a grandma. My daughter Brooke and son-in-law Thayer are expecting a little boy! I can’t wait for this exciting new chapter in our lives. I am thrilled and excited to be Grandma. I know Monty is up there watching over all of us. He is now our true guardian angel!”
Here’s what the women of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills don’t get: We do want a fabulous story – even if it means running over the “dead bodies” of dull Housewives filled with overly-inflated hubrises. IfLisa Vanderpump wants to be the metaphorical “Dexter” of Bravo, then by all means, do. Especially if it means I, as a viewer, get more exposure to diamonds and mini horses, than I do IV fluids and arguments about nothing. This show is supposed to be about glamour, which is why I don’t mind Kyle Richards wearing a ballgown to her BBQ and having it catered by a team of gourmet George Foreman Grill experts. We can get paper plates, hot dogs, and beer in our own backyards!
Eileen Davidson may label it “manipulative” (a word she has uttered so many times I swear someone at Merriam-Webster is paying her to make it a ‘thing’. Or maybe she just learned it and is over-eager to just drop it like it’s hot. It’s not.), but what Eileen fails to comprehend is what the viewers crave and expect from a show ostensibly about the lives of the uber-rich. This is not Unsolved Mysteries – we don’t care about ‘finding the truth’ or uncovering facts. We want glitter and we want it NOW!
