I don’t know what I would do if it wasn’t for the Real Housewives franchise. I have watched every episode of every season in every city multiple times, no matter how I feel about the content. With that said, this season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has definitely been its worst – by far. As much as I love these ladies, there are so many reasons why Season 6 of RHOBH has been its worst. No matter how much I stan for this show, I cannot deny this. And I’m sure that I’m not the only one wishing for a redo on this one.
Typically, RHOBH is chock full of story lines, but this season just dragged on and on. Don’t get me wrong, I still watched every episode a million times, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I usually do. And this is something that made me sad. Hopefully someone at Bravo who has some power is reading this right now and will do what they can to avoid these same mistakes next season.
This is the exact opposite of how things go on Vanderpump Rules. For the most part, the workers at SUR adore and obey LVP. Lisa‘s employee Jax Taylor and occasional restaurant staffer Tom Schwartz came to her defense in response to the RHOBHdrama.
Here’s what the women of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills don’t get: We do want a fabulous story – even if it means running over the “dead bodies” of dull Housewives filled with overly-inflated hubrises. IfLisa Vanderpump wants to be the metaphorical “Dexter” of Bravo, then by all means, do. Especially if it means I, as a viewer, get more exposure to diamonds and mini horses, than I do IV fluids and arguments about nothing. This show is supposed to be about glamour, which is why I don’t mind Kyle Richards wearing a ballgown to her BBQ and having it catered by a team of gourmet George Foreman Grill experts. We can get paper plates, hot dogs, and beer in our own backyards!
Eileen Davidson may label it “manipulative” (a word she has uttered so many times I swear someone at Merriam-Webster is paying her to make it a ‘thing’. Or maybe she just learned it and is over-eager to just drop it like it’s hot. It’s not.), but what Eileen fails to comprehend is what the viewers crave and expect from a show ostensibly about the lives of the uber-rich. This is not Unsolved Mysteries – we don’t care about ‘finding the truth’ or uncovering facts. We want glitter and we want it NOW!
I have a confession to make: I love when the Real Housewives go rogue and post their own blogs because I know we’re getting the unfiltered version of what they have to say about an episode. Lisa Vanderpump did just that last night after the airing of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion. She took to Facebook to share her thoughts on everything that went down.
She starts with an apology. Snicker. “Hello to you all, I am sorry I was remiss in submitting my blog last week, I was traveling and also fighting a cold. I apologize, oh no …did I just say that? Scratch that because I never do that…”
Now that you’ve had time to digest all that happened on last night’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion episode (my eye is still twitching from the insanity of it all), here’s Eileen Davidson with her two cents on the hot mess. She doesn’t hold back a thing when it comes to her feelings on Lisa Vanderpump.
First Eileen touches on Kim Richards telling her this is a reality show, not a soap opera. “What, Kim? I’m overdramatic???!!! Okay, I’m sure I am sometimes. But, as I recall it was Kim who exhibited extremely dramatic behavior at my house, during the car ride with Lisa R., and when she called me a beast at that oh-so-un-dramatic dinner in Amsterdam. And after that, I only saw Kim once this whole year, at Kyle’s party in the desert, where our interaction was brief and uneventful. I’m at a loss as to why she’s formed this opinion…but all right. Regardless, I do wish Kim well in her recovery.”
Shemust have been tranquilized, nervous because of the Russian accent, the hotness – something, because Brandi was uncannily well-behaved and actually allowed her guest to speak. I mean, as much as it’s possible for Brandi!
Tonight the ladies are joined by Kim Richards, who tries to settle her bad blood withLisa Rinna and then gets into with Eileen Davidson about LAST SEASON’s poker night. And although she wasn’t even AT poker night, Yolanda Foster feels the need to interject and give one of her lectures. And that’s not the only one she’s handing out. As Kim tries to make a point to Eileen, Yolanda butts in to fight the battle for her – dishing out words of wisdom and holier than thou lectures that nobody gives a rip about. Please let this be her last hurrah. It’ll make it easier to swallow.
