Even though Kyle Richards is a cast member in a reality TV franchise called Real Housewives, she is oddly in the minority since a lot of the stars in the franchise aren’t even wives. Kyle and Mauricio Umansky seem to have a very solid relationship and they’re not even annoying about it…. minus the constant plugs for The Agency that I could do without.
Kyle recently opened up about the very beginning of her relationship with her husband Mauricio, why she would never do Dancing With the Stars, and how she said no a million times to doing Celebrity Apprentice, but ended up caving to join the cast anyway.
It has been tough for me to find sympathy for Eden Sassoon this season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but I definitely felt bad for her after Erika Girardi rejected and made fun of the friendship ring she bought her during the Hong Kong trip. Sure, I felt like it was a little off-base since I am pretty sure that these two had zero alone time the whole season.
Nevertheless, Erika’s reaction was unkind and unnecessary. I have been ride or die Erika Jayne from the start, but it’s tough to defend her antics in Hong Kong. Then again, every human being is bound to have an unflattering moment or two if her life is filmed for months at a time.
Lisa Rinna knows many, many things: she knows Harry Hamlin is a pie-making, grey-haired demigod, she knows that her dog Lola has magical powers of mind control, she knows that shopping saves lives, she knows that if she stands before giant murals of rainbow-colored angel wings she can a least look like she’s good, and she knows that gold is her color. But what Lisa Rinna doesn’t know, and wants to find out, is if Dorit Kemlsey was doing coke in the bathroom. So these are the days of our Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills.
And just think – this is not even the plot of the real-life soap opera Eileen Davidson stars in!
As far as dinner parties from hell, or vacations from hell go, the ladies of RHOBH reign supreme. As they do in so many instances. Hong Kong is no exception. Right after Erika Girardi finishes preaching at Eileen with her Tammy Faye Baker eyes, and just as everyone is finally – finally – tucking into their soup course, Lipsa ever-so-brightly inquires if Dorit was serving cocaine at her dinner party months ago. See Lisa saw things. She saw things that bothered her, but she never got the chance to bring up. As mentioned above, Lisa knows things, like that a good hostess would never leave HER, of all people, at the table while the rest of party disappeared to freshen up. Lisa Vanderpump would never do that!
Another day, another teaser about the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion. This time, Eileen Davidson is spilling some tea about what we can expect when the ladies get together to rehash a doozie of a season. Though she wasn’t in the middle of most of the drama, Eileen admits the reunion still took a toll on her.
“I could actually not put two words together this morning,” said Eileen the day after taping the reunion. “It’s crazy. I actually sound halfway intelligent. I couldn’t have been this clear yesterday.”
Lisa begins with gratitude for her cast mates supporting her work against Yulin. “Hong Kong was an incredible opportunity to focus on our fight against Yulin, and I am grateful for all who supported us in our tireless endeavors, against the barbarianism which transpires each summer solstice.”
Eden Sassoon didn’t have much to add to the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills in Hong Kong, but she did rock an awesomely bad wig and apparently meet up with her Instagram dude – so the trip was not entirely in vain! This week, Eden chose – or was forced – to be a bit player on the stage, a role she says suited the situation well, considering how the trip devolved into a string of explosive arguments and salacious accusations.
Eileen reflects, “I knew from the beginning that the thing between Dorit and Erika would eventually come to a head. What I didn’t expect was to have Lisa [Rinna] and me dragged into it as well. Dorit’s reaction was surprising. Erika had some strong words – probably because she had been keeping the deep embarrassment and hurt she had for ‘pantygate’ in for so long. Instead of sincerely apologizing, Dorit landed some pretty harsh critiques back. Calling Lisa R. ‘low-class’ and to ‘question if Erika has feelings’ was uncalled for.”
