Look – I’m just gonna say it, because it has to be said: Yolanda Foster should not be part of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills this season. If Yolanda is too ill to fully participate, she should have taken a leave of absence to selfie from the comfort of her bed.
It’s not that I believe illness or family tragedy have no place on a mostly fluffy reality show. I fully agree the storylines should be real and provide an honest-ish glimpse into these women’s lives. But Lyme Disease has infected everything! Plus Yolanda is not giving us realness (about her own life or, apparently, allegedly, her children’s?), nor is she giving us the aspirational living required from the WEALTHIEST Housewives zipcode. Instead she’s giving us… well I don’t know if it’s Chronic Lyme, misdiagnosed menopause, Munchausen by Wikipedia, denial over an ailing marriage, or silicone poisoning?
About last week’s episode,Erika shares, “I appreciate that the women and I were able to sit around the dinner table and have a deeper conversation. I felt like I got to know them better, and I am starting to see more of who they are.”
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.

Being stranded in the Hamptons with the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills pecking at each other’s emotional vulnerabilities has left Ms. Rinna exhausted. “This trip to the Hamptons feels like it’s never going to end!” she laments, describing the so-called vacation as “quite intense and rather uncomfortable.” I blame Bethenny. (I kid. Well, kinda. I actually blame Bethenny AND Kim Richards).
“Lisa Rinna is someone I’ve known for over 20 years, and although we hadn’t kept in contact over time, she’s always someone I enjoy running into,” Kathryn shared. “Her energy and humor are in a league of their own, so of course I was happy to see her at Lisa Vanderpump‘s charity event. What I wasn’t happy about was that the first thing out of her mouth was O.J.… Really? If that is what you think when you see me, I guess I haven’t made much of any impression on you. Besides, I don’t think Rinna ever saw me once with O.J., but whatever. I will give her new memories.” How refreshing is her attitude?!
When asked about Eileen confessing to being in an abusive relationship in the past, Camille, a victim of domestic abuse as well, shares, “I was very moved by her openness. I applaud her for speaking out.”
Kyle admits that she was surprised by Eileen‘s revelation, explaining, “It sort of came out of the blue. We’ve all been getting closer and closer with time. We were there, having fun and relaxing, and the next thing you know that came out. I know it was very difficult for her and she had a little bit of anxiety about it, but it was really brave of her to say that.”
I’m confused – I thought Kim Richards was fired from Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills? Is she getting a royalty check every time someone says her name because she’s literally all anyone talks about. And Erika Jayne‘s face above, that’s how I feel when Kim gets brought up. I imagine Kyle Richards probably has an interesting enough life without discussing Kim.
First there is her questionable fashion taste, yet she is the owner of not one, but TWO luxury kaftan emporiums (Did Kyle really repurpose a lace table cloth into a mini dress last night? I applaud her dedication to sustainable fashion and support of Project Runway challenges in the real world sphere). There is her friendship with Morally Corrupt Faye Resnick, her drama with other sister, Kathy Hilton, the Machiavellian womb which produced Paris Hilton. Then there is Kyle’s ultimate frienemy-ship with Lisa Vanderpump because of which Kyle often is seen making an ‘I drank a fiber smoothie but forgot my Depends’ face.
Oh, and the woman has like 46 feet of hair, which does tricks: Hair flips! Helicopter spins! Plus she can do splits. And Kyle’s married to “Maurice,” who may or may not be sour that LVP stole his Bravo spinoff, which is only karma because he may or may not have stolen Rick Hilton‘s clients (according to Truth Cannons). What I’m alluding to here is that Kyle has a lot to work with which doesn’t involve Kim. Plus, she’s also doing a closet renovation, so there’s that.
