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.”
Even though the Vanderpump Rules fans are well aware that Scheana Marie and Mike Shaysplit up back in November 2016, the split was barely addressed this season… until the last few episodes. This means that the split is going to be front and center at the reunion. Not only that, but Scheana accuses Shay of cheating on her during the reunion episodes.
Personally, I am so shocked that Shay even showed up for the reunion since he left Scheana by herself for most of the season. This is especially shocking since Scheana is currently dating Robert Valletta – someone that Jax Taylor has some opinions on, of course.
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.
It’s so hard trying to keep track of Lala Kent’s presence on Vanderpump Rules. Is she still a part of the show? Is she done with it forever? It seems like that answer is constantly changing. Lala left the show, denounced the show, returned for the reunion, and started taking a lot of photos with Scheana Marie and Ariana Madix. Now it seems like she’s all in again, but who knows.
Our first look at the Vanderpump Rules reunion is here. Bravo promises that everything from “scandalous hookups” and “cheating accusations” to “wild wedding festivities” will be argued about ad nauseam covered at the Season 5 reunion, which Andy Cohen said was “intense.”
Look below for pictures and a breakdown of the three-part reunion. Yes, three parts, because apparently season five was a hit with viewers. <blank stare> I personally thought that this was the worst season yet, but Bravo claims that this season of Vanderpump Rules is “on track to deliver its highest rated season ever” with a reported average of 2.4 million viewers.
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.”
Erika stopped by Watch What Happens Live to address the intense episode with Andy Cohen and fellow guest, Real Housewives fanatic Megan McCain. I have to admit that I am an Erika Jayne fan, so it was tough for me to watch. It was the first time in Erika’s two years on the show when I found it difficult to back her up. I was nervous about the (deserved) backlash that she was bound to get for flipping out at Eileen for no reason.
