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).
The only thing worse than a bitter breakup is the demise of a close friendship. Losing a pal who knows where all the bodies are buried cannot be easy. Case in point: Lisa Vanderpumpand Brandi Glanvilleused to be best friends on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills until it all went horribly wrong before and after Brandi got booted from the show.
Now Brandi is spilling all of the tea when it comes to her former bestie and life behind the scenes as a Real Housewife of Beverly Hills.
Clearly I counted my eggs before they hatched when I concluded that Dorit Kemsley redeemed herself at the beginning of her second Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season. She was getting along with Erika Jayne while they gambled in Las Vegas and I was so here for their budding friendship.
Then she couldn’t keep Lisa Rinna’s name out of her mouth, which I normally understand since Rinna has caused some trouble over the years, but she was pretty innocent this season (at least until she casually brought up those assault allegations against Ken Todd). Dorit is either talking shit about Rinna or looking for an excuse to do so again. As if that wasn’t annoying enough, she offended most of the fandom when she got wasted and called Camille Grammer a “stupid c**t” for absolutely no reason.
It feels like Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is the cast member that we didn’t know we needed on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (minus the constant horse talk for the first few episodes). She doesn’t have a glam squad or brag about her life (unlike some people). She is also not afraid to call out Dorit Kemsley on her bull shit, as we all say when she left Teddi hanging for fifty four minutes after she invited her for drinks.
Teddi may have been “introduced” to the viewers through Dorit – who she met on camera – but there are other cast members Teddi became close with during her rookie season.
Of course I don’t want the current Vanderpump Rules season to end, but at the same time, I cannot wait until the cast gets together for the reunion episodes. One reason is that it seems like almost every woman in this cast has issues with Scheana Marie and I want to see it all play out while they’re all spray tanned and glammed up.
Recently, both Scheana and her ex Robert Valletta blamed the Vanderpump Rules cast for their breakup, so it seems like the bad blood goes both ways. And I want to know why. I want to know every single thing that went down this season and I want to know now. Unfortunately, I have no insider information, but a recent interview with Scheana does make it clear where she stands with most of the other cast members. Well, it is at least clear where she stands with Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Katie Maloney– i.e. not on good terms.
Last season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills I suspected something was misfiring inside Dorit Kemsley‘s brain because she just didn’t seem to ‘get’ certain things. Now I wonder if the reason she changes her hair so much is because instead of a brain her head is filled with extra pieces of hair. It’s plausible, right? And yes, once again last night was The Dorit Show, and I dunno… Lisa Rinna is a better TV host!
You guys – I am about to make a startling confession and I fully expect to be stoned with carbohydrates and Payless Shoes for this, but I have to do it. So here it goes: I truly believe the Housewife most like myself is Lisa Rinna.
No, I have not secretly written a book on how to suck D (yet! *wink, wink*), but when it comes to getting a tasty piece of gossip or knowing something I shouldn’t, I, like Lipsa, cannot help but blurt it out at inopportune times.
