If I lost over $1 million dollars in priceless purses and jewelry I’d be traumatized too, and after her home was burglarized last year Kyle Richards still suffers from PTSD: Purse Traumatic Stress Syndrome. (That is literally the cheesiest thing I’ve ever written, but lets go with it here people!).
For Kyle the most upsetting aspect is not just feeling unsafe in her home, or losing her Birkins, but that family heirlooms went missing. “Everything is gone,” the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star shares, and she partially blames herself for the loss.
Just like the Housewives that came before her, Dorit used the show to promote her brand, but the line also gave the season a little bit of drama. That’s how dull Season 8 was, a bathing suit line actually caused some drama. Dorit blamed working on the swimwear line when she was late for lunch with Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. She “argued” with her husband PK Kemsleyfor changing the name of her line (which she ended up keeping). She invited the whole cast to her fashion show for the finale episode where Kyle Richards walked out after arguing with Lisa Vanderpump for not putting her in a magazine. Kyle also got frustrated with Erika Jaynefor not standing up for her at this same fashion show. The icing on the cake was when Dorit named bathing suits after every cast member except for Teddi and Camille Grammer. Now there’s even more Beverly Beach by Dorit products in the works.
She was almost at Season 1 level of sass in response to Dorit Kemsley’s antics- which is exactly what the viewers really needed- especially during an otherwise boring wedding. It seems like the last season was a setup for Camille to be full-time next year, but that might not be the case.
Of course she talked about the Beverly Hills reunion, but she was also asked to weigh in on the Bethenny Frankelvs. Carole Radziwill feud. Kyle has been friends with Bethenny for over 25 years, so she does have a lot of insight when it comes to the Skinnygirl founder.
After a rather drama-free season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, it’s not surprising that the secrets revealed last night were less than exciting – and had mostly to do with teenagers behaving badly and the mothers who worry about them.
Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave‘s husband Edwin is giving Mauricio a run for his money in the real estate game! Either that or Edwin’s been watching Million Dollar Listing for some advice on how to win a bidding war on multi-million dollar homes, because after stalking the builders of his neighbor’s house, he badgered, harassed, and harangued them into taking $2 million less for the property just to get rid of him. They need security for the security guy!
Teddi is thrilled with the new home – at a discount price. Not so successful was Edwin’s buying a new Lambo with the money he saved. Teddi does not like things that go fast unless they’re one night stands which lead to the altar. Or cardio classes. And horsepower belongs on four-legged friends with mane and tail.
Um, I wouldn’t pay $2.99 to fulfill my husband’s midlife crisis, let alone $299,000. Edwin is a lucky guy!
Last night was part 3 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion. Which means this season of interminable squabbles about protocol and etiquette at the queen’s court of public opinion, an unintentional farce from the court jester, is over. Thank you Dorit Kemsley for your tragicomic contributions to Reality TV – we salute you with a beer stein filled with cheap champagne.
So last night the ladies of Beverly Hills trotted out their plethora of headache-inducing shiny dresses for the last time to bicker over such impotent social slights as who talks about themselves the most (the answer: always and forever Kyle Richards) and the definition of a liar. For the record, I really dislike recapping reunions. It’s like following a verbal tennis game and I always want to activate closed captioning on my TV to catch all the shady little barbs, except I don’t actually know how to turn that on. Maybe that’s a good thing?
Kyle Richards and her husband Mauricio Umansky are doing something very un-Beverly Hills: they’re hiking and enjoying the great outdoors (albeit with champagne and a fancy resort) in Utah and Arizona.
The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star and her husband, along with some friends have been vacationing at the exclusive Amangiri resort in the red rock Antelope Canyons and Rattlesnake Canyons. There they’ve been swimming in Lake Powell, hiking and trekking, mountain biking and of course enjoying five-star luxury service! Champagne on the rocks – literally.
