Last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills led to yet another issue between Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump about defining the boundaries of their friendship. I see both sides of this argument. I’d also like to remind them that in the middle of their bickering is a little follicle-ly unstable blonde woman named Dorit Kemsley, who cannot and will not stop talking shit about everyone she calls a friend.
Actually last night everyone (*except Dorit*) was more human. I credit Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave‘s influence. She’s chill, relaxed, absent of pretense, and despite being publicly scolded and denigrated over inappropriate stemware application, she STILL invited everyone to her ‘beach cottage’ for a potluck. Something about casseroles and dips puts everyone in a ‘let’s get real’ mood. Huddled around Teddi’s kitchen island, surrounded by pita chips served from Pottery Barn dishes, the women all showed their vulnerable and softer roots as opposed to their usual Febreezed exterior.
Kourtney Kardashian headed off to NYC with her family, including niece North West. They were spotted around the city and photographed doing a little ice skating, too. Also seen in NYC: Yolanda Hadid as she promoted the latest episode of her new reality show.
Every time I see photos of Real Housewives from different cities hanging out, I want to know what happened before and after those pics were taken. Are these people actually friends or are these just photo opportunities that guarantee a lot of likes on Instagram?
Everyone and everything on this season’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is getting on my last nerve except for Kyle Richards…which has me wondering if I’m suffering from some horrible disorder. When ol’ Splits McGee is the lady I’m vying to befriend, you know it’s bad! I’m enjoying Erika Girardi and am glad to see she’s burying the hatchet with Dorit Kemsley. However, Dorit (and her accent) is condescending and painful, so there’s that. The verdict is still out as to my opinion on Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, but Dorit’s treatment of this woman at every turn has me at least sympathetic. Also, am I the only one who loves Vanderpump RulesLisa but is indifferent towards RHOBH Lisa V? What is my problem this season? Do I need Bravo to bring back Taylor Armstrong?
Maybe it’s simply the lack of genuine drama that is disappointing. Are we still talking about late-gate and shaming bartenders over wine glasses champagne flutes? If your biggest worry is whether your driver will be able to navigate rush hour traffic to make it to the helipad so you can surprise your husband with a chopper ride and floating casino for his fiftieth birthday, there likely isn’t much to scream about. At least Teddi seems to have the ability to take the pettiness with a grain of salt…at the moment.
Ugh – it’s official, Dorit Kemsley is the one with multiple personalities, not Erika. It’s like Dorit’s evil doppelgänger does all these bad behaviors on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, then Dorit swoops in with a new hair style and a new accent to pretend she has “absolutely no idea” what anyone is talking about because she, a woman of impeccable etiquette, would never EVER call someone a C-word during dinner, or throw a fit over the wrong wine glass at a party, or be one hour late to a drinks meeting then lie about it.
No, she will throw Casino Royale parties where arrives via helicopter in designer gowns, waving to her people and smiling graciously. Dorit’s idealized self is not communicating with her actual self and we’re having problems here. Big time!
In our latest reality star photo roundup we have Real Housewives of New Yorkstar Bethenny Frankel was busy this week. The Skinnygirl mogul was photographed attending the Febreze launch of their new Super Bowl ad campaign, then running errands out and about in NYC.
Ever since the first season, Camille has been a total class act, but I was really hoping that season one Camille would be unleashed when Dorit Kemsley got wasted and called her a “stupid c-nt” in front Camille’s new man David C. Meyer. Camille shared her true feelings on Dorit, her theory about why Kelsey encouraged her to sign on for the show, and why she thinks the medium from season one predicted the end of her first marriage.
I’m having a total about face when it comes to Dorit Kemsley. Actually, given Dorit’s confusing hair and wardrobe this season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, I’d say she’s having a total about face about her own self! Something seems very off with her, and she’s driving everything to hell in a designer handbag!
Dorit lives in a fake prosperous world where she is your fun, eccentric friend doing zany but delightful things. The kind of friend who cosplays Erika Girardi (not Jayne!) and has NO idea how insanely insane she comes across. I think that instead I’ll just focus on Ken gently placing a newborn dog inside his shirt, kangaroo pouch-style, and softly holding it there until the puppy dozed off. It belongs on an Anne Geddes calendar, or in one of Lisa Rinna‘s bubbles of white light, because it was perfection.
