If I were Jax Taylor‘s girlfriend Brittany, after watching last night’s Vanderpump Rules, I’d be breaking up with him. But she probably got into the business of dating Jax by watching Vanderpump Rules, so I’ll assume she’s not surprised by his general assiness and lies.
Before we get into all the drama Lisa Vanderpump meets an early 30-something woman named Arielle with priorities. Imagine! Arielle volunteers with homeless youth (aged 18 – 23) who live in a shelter. Arielle reached out to Lisa and Ken on Facebook because many of these kids have never eaten in a fancy restaurant and have always wanted to. Lisa and Ken of course say yes.
Now, drama. Lala Kent did not hook up with Jax after PRIDE – but not for lack of trying! Lala asks if he wants to get a drink, so Jax pretends he’s not really together with his girlfriend Brittany. Out of sight, out of mind; in sight, in Jax’s bed!
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.
In our latest roundup of reality TV star (past and present) photos we have for you: Caroline Stanbury, Melissa Gorga, Draya Michele, Lisa Vanderpump and so many more!

Melissa Gorga was spotted outside of her Envy by Melissa Gorgaboutique this week. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star announced yesterday that her store is now open – just in time for Christmas shopping.
Lisa starts with words of compassion for Eileen Davidson and her family over their loss of Dick Van Patten: “It was a poignant, sad moment that tugged at my heart as you realize how great the family’s loss was. Life is all about saying goodbye, and I felt for them.”
“Seeing Eileen and Vince go to Palm Springs to honor his late father, Dick Van Patten, was quite touching and heartfelt,” said Lisa. “He was an extraordinary man that we all felt close to because so many of us grew up with him! As far as TV fathers go, Dick was among the most iconic. Watching Eileen [Davidson] and Vince honor him at his star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars and at his celebration of life was beautiful. It was an honor to have seen him when I did at the Burbank Film Festival last year.”
Yolanda Foster’s (extremely confusing) health struggles are front and center on this season’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. While some castmates are rallying around Yolanda with words of support and encouragement, others are questioning the extent – and even the validity – of Yolanda’s many symptoms. Alliances are indeed being formed. And despite her “Lyme Brain,” Yo seems very clear about who’s on her team!
After thanking fans for their “unwavering support,” Yolanda expresses compassion for Eileen Davidson’srecent loss. “A big hug to Eileen and Vinnie for their loss of the amazing Dick Van Patten. I know how much they both loved him. Having lost my father at an early age, I have great empathy. The loss of a parent is profound at any age.”
It’s time for the sick, sad, dysfunctional world of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills! Thank goodness for the beautiful Tuscan scenery and the epic way Lisa Vanderpump put Kathy Hilton‘s BS on blast or else I’d be suffering from a case of Lymopause-depression! I can’t wait for Erika Jayne‘s kooky-crazy next week to infuse this show with some fun weirdness, because melo-lyme-dramatics is too much!
Yolanda Fosterneeds to break-up from “stabbing in the dark” and “playing detective,” as she refers to the menagerie of ‘treatments’ she’s trying to cure Lyme. What is making Yolanda sicker – the Lyme Disease or all the crazy she’s dumping into her body? Yolanda’s Bathrobe is becoming the new Yolanda’s Fridge, and YoBathrobe just doesn’thavethe same appeal. Lady needs to detox from detoxing, and instead of a weekly colonic to harvest tapeworms, how about a facial, a nice relaxing, massage, a bottle of wine and some My Love sexytimes! Or possibly a trip to the snooze-inducing Amalfi Coast?
Whether she’s exaggerating the details of her Lyme disease or not, Yolanda Foster certainly has a loyal ally in fellow Real Housewives of Beverly Hills castmate Eileen Davidson. And who wouldn’t want Eileen (You Beast!) on their side during tough times? This week, Eileen discusses how Yolanda’s illness stirred up her own feelings of family loss. She also weighs in on Kyle Richards’desire to keep her family mess swept cleanly under the carpet. Hint: Eileen thinks it should stay there too!
“It’s another emotional week here as Vincent and I continue to deal with the loss of his dad, Dick Van Patten,” begins Eileen. “It was a bittersweet moment visiting his star on the Palm Springs Walk of Fame. The outpouring of love and support from so many people whose lives Dickie touched has been a tremendous experience. We continue to try to heal after this loss and try to look at the world like Dickie did: hopeful, humorous, and upbeat. But, as we continue with the grieving process, it’s hard not to reflect on all the other losses my family has gone through.”
