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.
When I watch Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I am intimidated by Lisa Vanderpump and there’s a television screen and two thousand miles between us. Well, that and the fact that we have never interacted in any way, shape, or form. Still, if I’m that intimidated, I can’t imagine how Lisa Rinna feels when Vanderpump throws her under the bus whenever she can.
A lot of the time Sometimes the insults are deserved. Other times they just make for great TV. For the most part Rinna is in on the joke and just laughs along with Vanderpump. For someone who can dish it out, it doesn’t seem like LVP can take it, since Rinna can’t even watch old RHOBHepisodes on Instagram story without upsetting people. Nothing she said on those Instagram stories compares to the constant barrage of insults that Rinna receives from Vanderpump. Obviously the self-proclaimed queen of the show is upset about the Instagram stories and her fellow OG cast member Kyle Richards is on her side- of course. I don’t blame anyone for not wanting to go against Lisa Vanderpump.
It’s tough for the reality TV super fans to keep up with all of their favorite shows, let alone all of the cast members on Instagram. Fortunately for you, I did all of the social media lurking for this week’s Instagram Roundup.
Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor, Tom Sandoval, and Tom Schwartz enjoyed a boys weekend away at Big Bear. There’s still no word on who’s the “number one guy in this group,” but it looks like they all had a good time, which is something Jax could really use these days following the recent death of his father Ronald Cauchi.
Just when Dorit Kemsley was starting to win over some of her haters, she stood up Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave after inviting her to get drinks. In the grand scheme of things, this is not a huge deal, but Dorit comes across as rude and self-involved, to put it mildly.
The episode was complete with time stamps, so it’s easy to see that the narrative for this incident will go in Teddi’s favor, but Dorit did attempt to change that when she tattled to Kyle Richards with her version of the story.
Initially, I was happy that at least something happened during the last episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. To say that Season 8 “got off to a slow start” would be putting it nicely. I was pleased when Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave refused to accept Dorit Kemsley’s rude excuses after she left her sitting alone for an hour when they were supposed to get drinks. Dorit stirred the pot even further when she tried to twist the narrative in a conversation with Kyle Richards about the failed meetup.
I was more entertained than I’ve been for most of this season and that’s when I realized that this fifty-four minute wait will get dragged out just like pantygate did last season and Munchausen accusations did the year before. Why can’t these women be more like the New York Housewives? They offend each other, argue, get back together, and then repeat the cycle again with new offenses instead of elongating one issue for a whole season (or multiple seasons).
