Really quick before y’all start reading, what (or who) is Munchausens?? Is she a fancy, rich German lady who will be joining the cast on next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? No, no, it’s Lisa Vanderpump’s next club endeavor after the popularity of SUR and Pump, right? Wait, is that the brand of Yolanda Foster’s coveted refrigerator? Sorry, my bad, is it just the name of Lisa Rinna’s new line of incontinence products?
It’s been an entire season, and I’d rather debate the definition of Munchausen (and to be clear, I know what it is…I saw Sixth Sense!) than pick a side between the Lisas. Who’s with me? That question is easy to answer…Kyle Richards. She’s dissecting the RHOBH finale, and she’s trying to be as impartial as possible. Best of luck to her. Discussing the volatile episode, Kyle opines, “Well, here we are. Back in Los Angeles after our whirlwind Dubai trip. Much of what I wrote last week really pertains to this week as well. I know it is confusing to some since this happened off camera. That always makes it a difficult story to tell. What happened that day at LVP’s when Rinna said the word Munchausen was very clear to me, which is why I confronted LVP right after. We had the discussion in her bathroom. That is when I said, ‘I know what you’re up to, and I will take you down in flames with me’ half laughing, because I just didn’t want to make a big deal out of it.”
“So as the sun sets on the Hills of Beverly, the shade is cast in my direction.”
Lisa admits she feels incredibly hurt and had “no interest” in watching the past few episodes, but adds, “I encourage you to watch closely as some delusional characters play out this exhausting scenario. I have a second-hand account as to what you have seen, but my memories and experience can see me through.”
I hate a finales in general. Everyone circles like sharks, lurking for damage control, eager to take down the pre-appointed prey. And to the shark with the sharpest teeth, go the tastiest camera morsels. However, it’s important to remember that sharks are not smart – they are reactionary creatures whose successful existence hinges on their ability to annihilate prey quickly and effectively, which accounts for their survival, basically unchanged after millions of years. This is where Housewives fail. Their takedowns are rarely streamlined, timely, or effective.
Such is the case at Kyle Richards‘ party, held in the house she stole from Kim Richards. What a shocker that Kim is there, holding a sign that reads “Property Of KimKillah.” I believe Brandi Glanville did her hair and makeup. That is the only excuse for the bootleg I Dream Of Jeanie looking Bump-it hair and wandering cat-eye makeup. But at least Kim isn’t smuggling vodka in her iced coffee. Instead, she’s smiling, eager and willing to pretend all the nastiness of Palm Springs pasts never happened.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Above: Responding to negative comments about her body, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna shared, “Chill Bitches. My body is a healthy body. I am proud of this body. It is strong and healthy. We come in all shapes and sizes, body shaming is wrong on every level. It’s a terrible message to send our daughters. #AllBodiesAreBeautiful #BeYou”
In a newly released clip we see Lisa Rinna putting Lisa Vanderpump on blast, claiming that LVP wanted Lisa R to bring up Munchausen for fear there would be no storyline this season if she didn’t. Vanderpump tries to shut her down with a denial, but Rinna has brought along Andy’s favorite reunion prop: evidence!
While the Lisas battle it out, a wounded-looking Yolanda Foster sits and looks on as the women battle back and forth over what was said. She tearfully gets up and rushes off the stage, with Erika running after her a minute later.
She started off her blog, which she wrote BEFORE she saw Lisa Vanderpump’s. She must’ve read my rant from the other day. “Hola from Mexico! I see you. I hear you. I agree with you about this nonsense dragging on and on and on. This has gotten far too drawn out and confusing. Life is too short. I’m done. It’s all so silly and mind numbing, isn’t it? The salacious events have happened, albeit wildly confusing, and I hear you all loud and clear. Time to MOVE ON.”
Kathryn Edwards is disappointed that the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hillstrip to Dubai and her birthday were hijacked by drama being “rehashed” over and over again. Her advice to her co-stars: get over it, move on, and accept that there are two sides to every story, not one truth. Speaking her own truth, Kathryn doesn’t hesitate to call out Lisa Rinna‘s duplicitous motives nor Kyle Richards‘s refusal to own her feelings.
Lisa admits that she couldn’t watch this week’s episode and relied on Ken to watch for her. “It was a harrowing experience, but I garner snippets from my husband as he relays the story, relays the story interspersed with angry expletives as he sees how this unfolds.”
