On last night’s Vanderpump Rules, the Toms demonstrated that age is just a number and even when you’re 35, you can still pretend to be 21 with no responsibilities. I guess when you have stunted bartender jobolescence, growing up is hard to do! Even if you have “buishischeness deschisions” to make!
SUR is back in action with a facelift, because Lisa Vanderpump turns raging fires into restaurant redesign, and everything winds up looking a little fresher and sparklier. The new chandelier at SUR has the added benefit of making everyone look younger. Tom and Jax look positively like their first season selves. Too bad all Hollywood ‘facelifts’ don’t turn out so well! This is all a prequel to Tom Tom, which the Toms will get a larger taste of during their ‘work trip’ to Vegas.
Lisa will show Tom 1 and Tom 2 “a day in the life of the Vanderpump regime.” Which is more than just design elements, but showing them what running an actual business looks like. A business which has nothing to do with pretend statement necklace collection, or ‘online beauty blogs’ that get updated once every 3 months. Or at least that’s her plan…
It was pretty unexpected for Lisa Vanderpumpto fall out with Dorit Kemsley. Sure Dorit told everyone in the cast that LVP was insecure because her mother didn’t say “I love you,” but Lisa still wanted to jump in a cab with her after Kyle Richards stood up to Dorit on her behalf. It seemed like Dorit could do no wrong in Lisa’s eyes. It felt like Dorit had something on Lisa or that Lisa just didn’t want to lose a loyal soldier who’s more than willing to stir the pot for the sake of the show.
When Lisa told Dorit, she loves her “mainly on the strength of loving [her] husband,” it was pretty shocking because who loves PK Kemsleythat much? What is Lisa going to miss out on in life if there’s a strain in her relationship with PK? It’s not like she couldn’t buy tickets to a Boy George concert on her own. Does she really want to spend the rest of her life waiting for Dorit to show up for drinks?
Before Dorit became a Housewife she was a swimwear designer and now she’s back at it with a new line. We all saw that business meeting (before she was late for drinks with Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave) where she proclaimed that “red is having a moment” right now. Apparently it wasn’t that big of a moment since the line is lacking some bright, red swimwear at the moment. Nevertheless, she does have some pieces inspired by her time on the show.
Right from the jump, Erika Girardi and her alter ego Erika Jayne, killed it during that rookie season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Aside from entertaining us all with her catsuits and dance moves, Erika had the audacity to call out OG cast member Lisa Vanderpump as a “sniper from the side,” something the seasoned Housewives would never be brave enough to do.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has turned into the Erika Jayne show and I cannot imagine that sits well with Lisa Vanderpumpand her mini horses, swans, and her many dogs. Erika has never and will never bow down to Vanderpump or choose to be one of her (many) sidekicks. Erika’s girl Lisa Rinna explained why Erika has been able to escape Vanderpump manipulation.
Season 6 of Vanderpump Rules is truly the gift that keeps on giving. Monday has become my favorite day of the week. I hate to say this, but the cast’s problems get worse and worse and my Mondays just get better and better. Ultimately I want the best for them all and I view them all as friends in my head, but I have to admit that their drama always provides me with premium entertainment.
This season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills started out with Lisa Rinnacleaning up her messes from last season. After her apology tour, Lisa got caught up channeling her inner Kris Jenneras the momager for her fashion model daughters and she has stayed out of the drama for the past few episodes.
She still managed to entertain when she had a few cocktails too many and kept asking “Camille, what’s the issue?” In Lisa’s absence, Dorit Kemsleyhas stepped up to stir the pot and that is just fine with Lisa.
I feel like everyone needs a friend like Tom Sandoval. He will give you makeover if you need one and cry tears of joy on your behalf and use a puppy as a handkerchief. Sure, he’s a little outrageous with the hair-braider and the costume guy on hand, but there’s nothing wrong with being extra. It’s better to be extra than not enough.
Sigh. Does no one understand Kyle Richards? It is so hard to be Kyle Richards. She is the most loyalist, kindest, most sincerest, genuinest, funnest, friendest friend on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills but no one appreciates her. Especially not Lisa Vanderpump, who quite literally could hand Kyle her heart on a silver platter and Kyle would insist Lisa was lying while actually giving her a dog turd. OK maaaaaaybe that’s a bit dramatic, because LVP can also be frigid and oblique, but last night she really did, in her own way, hand Kyle her heart. Let’s see what Kyle does with it!
