I have to say the first installment of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion was pretty low-key. There were some revelations, some serious bitchery, and there was Lisa Vanderpump holding court as the resident queen as Andy Cohen all but got down on his knees to laud her. There was a for-real fight over Lisa's affection, which I found truly amusing.
Things begin with Andy taking Adrienne Maloof to task in a verbal smackdown about how Adrienne's final act as a Housewife was one of defiance. Andy basically pointed his finger in her face and said: "Big mistake. Huge!" But Adrienne don't care. Once she got her walking papers she decided to give ol' Andy the final snub.
Andy makes all the ladies break down surrogate-gate and if they think Adrienne should have shown up to face her demons. The consensus is why go on reality TV if you have secrets. Yes, why indeed Rambles Richards? Why go on reality TV with secrets and then blame your castmates for outing them; claiming they have ruined your life? Good question!
Last night on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills finale, Lisa Vanderpump's lovely vow renewal/housewarming party was infiltrated by some serious thugs in cocktail dresses.Adrienne Maloof showed up not six minutes after announcing her separation on TMZ and then she sat in the middle of the party like a centerpiece bawling about the marriage she openly hated on national television. If only that Paul Nassif wasn't such a desperate attention seeking jerk!
Everyone thought Adrienne's eleventh hour appearance was a cry for attention, except for Kyle Richards who believed it to be a cry for help since Adrienne couldn't answer her phone that day unless your number was 1-800-TMZ1!
And Faye Resnick. Yes, she's STILL there. Once Brandi Glanville and Yolanda Foster flee her admonitions of how to be a lady, they hide behind a column and fill Lisa in on the nonsense. Lisa is not impressed. Marisa Zanuck comes over to get clarification on what a hallpass is and the ladies manage to resolve their issues. Things go much better in the shade than they do the blinding sun; the blinding glares were reflecting off Faye's extra-taut skin giving everyone temporary insanity.
Faye is hereby dubbed MC for short. MC, of course, stands for Morally Corrupt. Long-live the real Camille Grammer, never a girl to mince words and never a girl who forgets to be pernicious. I do believe Camille's smirking S1 Dinner Party From Hell face is right next to the definition in the dictionary.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
We can always count on Brandi Glanville to speak the truth, even if people are rising up against her in outrage. FromFaye Resnick to LeAnn Rimes; Brandi has never backed down from her enemies. It's why we love her.
Brandi shares that the reunion was downright frightening! “The girls really have a go at Yolanda [Foster],” Brandi reveals. Yolanda who is suffering from Lyme Disease and battling memory loss as a result. Brandi feels some of her cast mates weren't very sympathetic or compassionate.
“Her brain still wasn’t functioning when she shot the reunion. She couldn’t remember what she had just said, and she couldn’t remember a lot of things. And they were going at her, and I just stepped in and I was, like, ‘Hold up! … Leave her the f**k alone,’ and it got a little ugly."
While Lisa is cool as a cucumber, she's fuming mad about last week's episode and the assignations made against Brandi by Faye Resnick. Lisa calls into question Faye's ethics, honesty, and behaviors!
Starting with Marisa Zanuck revealing Brandi's "playful" text at Adrienne's party and Faye's reveal that Brandi had sex in the bathroom at the white party, Lisa is "disgusted."
"I was the one who knocked on the door, opened it as they were all gossiping outside at the party," Lisa clarifies in her Bravo blog. "Yes she was having a good old snog as we say in England. What is wrong with that? However I knew this was a fuel for many if I didn't intervene."
While Dancing with the Stars was the most-watched show of the night, with 16.76 million viewers, the season premiere ratings were down 11% compared to last spring's season 14 premiere. Next week's premiere of The Voice should prove to be interesting. I'm curious to learn how many viewers stick with DWTS and how many leave to check out the new mentors on The Voice.
While Lisa isn't complaining about being "wrapped around" her "gorgeous partner" Gleb Savchenko, she revealed that the most enjoyable part of Dancing with the Stars is the camaraderie that she and her competitors share.
Rehearsal: Kellie, the roller-skating waitress turned American Idol hopeful turned award-winning country music singer/songwriter, is cute, funny, and spunky. And a natural dancer. Kellie says that she kids around a lot but definitely wants to take Derek's balls, err, the mirror ball home with her. Though, since Derek is the Dancing with the Stars golden boy, there isn't much difference.
Cha Cha Cha: The hips, the tassels, the legs, OMG. Kellie has an amazing body and knows how to move it.
Faye's friend, Daniel DiCriscio, a celebrity hair stylist who has known Faye for many years and is also an acquaintance of Lisa Vanderpump gives Reality Tea some behind-the-scenes details about Faye's life and about her busybody, attention-seeking ways! Hint: It turns out Faye has a lot more in common with Adrienne Maloof than orange day-glo tans and rubberized catified faces!
In my recap of last night's episode, I asked the question: "Who is Faye Resnick in this world?" Well Daniel has the answer! Be prepared to be scandalized and secretly delighted by the salacious details!
