Lisa Vanderpump visited the Jenny McCarthy Show on SiriusXM Stars this week – and Jenny was ready with a sparkly tiara for the queen! Having a bone to pick with Jenny over being labeled overly “produced,” Lisa defended that she lets it all hang out when it comes The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. But she did admit that her reality TV experience has come to help her over the years; she saves the juiciest bits for the cameras now. After all, seven seasons in the Bravo trenches has taught her a thing or two.
Lisa, who brought hubby Ken Todd – and of course, their adorable pooches – along to the studio, dished on everything from Lisa Rinna’s inability to “Own it! Own it!” to the personal journey of seeking out son Max’s biological parents this past year. But first, Lisa addressed the accusation that she’s somehow got her hand in RHOBH production. “I am probably the only Housewife that Evolution [the production company] says never says ‘Take anything out,'” claimed Lisa. “If I was producing myself, I’d be saying, ‘Oh – can you take this out or take that out?’ I don’t.”
Andy shared a photo of Lisa Rinna‘s naked selfie. Lisa says she has to admit that Rinna looked great. “That looks pretty good, I have to say. I can be a bitch sometimes but I can’t be about that, she looks good!” But LVP did give her some crap about putting it up and taking it down.
“Mother of the year” Lisa Vanderpump is buying Max an apartment to reward him for putting up with the hooligans of SUR. And trust me – that is no small feat! Lisa and Ken spent $630,000 on a WeHo ‘gem’ that they describe as a dump, but I thought it looked pretty amazing and far nicer than any place I’ve ever lived. But alas, we cannot all be so lucky as to be adopted into pillows of Pomeranian fur, bejeweled British accents, and cocooned in rose-scented tea petals. Please note my official plea that Lisa save me from my middle-classdom.
Are they paying Kim Richards to provide a season’s worth of plot lines during this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Or is she just signing a release form to be taped while she hangs out with her sister, Kyle Richards? Either way, Lisa Rinna and Eden Sassoon have made it clear that they have nothing to bring to this show since pretty much all they have contributed was gossip about “Kyle enabling Kim.”
Unfortunately for Kyle, she doesn’t get the luxury that viewers have – Kyle doesn’t get the opportunity to watch the action that previously happened when she wasn’t present. She has to form her conclusions based on what happens in front of her and what she hears from the other RHOBH ladies. And Kyle was confused trying to piece this whole mess together.
Kyle Richards shares with her sister exactly what’s being said about her and Kim‘s reaction is pretty much summed up by the photo above. Meanwhile, Eden chats with Dorit Kemsley about the situation and they both seem to think that Rinna herself is in some sort of denial.
On last night’s Vanderpump Rules poor Tom Schwartz saw the writing on the wall and it said “RUN!” First off, how stupid was the witch hunt over Tom’s two years in the past drunken Vegas hook-up and then Kristen Doute‘s insistence that this is the justified reason Katie Maloney is constantly mean and angry.
I fully agree with Tom Sandoval – that’s ridiculous, and Tom 2 is a “battered wife.” Now I feel more sad watching this. More sad-sad, even, because the only way Tom can tap into his own inner rage and express his feelings is while wearing a dress. Or being tortured by reptiles. When Tom 1 and Jax Taylor are the lone sane members of your collective friend group, things are not going swimmingly.
For the most part, Kyle is on this show to promote her husband’s real estate agency, build buzz for her scripted sitcom, and to comment on everyone stirring shit up. If you think about it, no one is really coming for Kyle herself. Nevertheless, she does have a lot to say about everything that’s going down in the 90210.
