Reflecting on Kim and her battle with addiction, which played out throughout the season, Lisa shares, “It was hard to watch. I very much didn’t want to get involved because I think there were people that were closer to her than I was. But I think everybody knew that something was amiss. She just kept saying, ‘No, I’ve got this.'”
In response to an earlier report that claimed Kim Richards was drunk and/or high, belligerent, and verbally abusive at Thayer and Brooke‘s wedding in Mexico over the weekend, a “family insider” has come forward to downplay the report and make excuses for Kim’s behavior.
This is par for the course for this family full of deflectors and enablers, but what really disgusts me is, the insider threw Kim‘s mentally ill sonChad under a bus in the process.
The “family insider” confirmed that a sober coach accompanied Kim to Mexico, however, the sober coach pretended to be Kim’s Pilates instructor. The insider admitted that the sober coach quit and left the country. But, you know, it wasn’t Kim’s fault. The coach was just being dramatic.
Earlier this month she underwent a stem cell transplant in Germany in another attempt to kick the debilitating effects of her chronic Lyme disease. After her treatment she spent some time at home in Holland. And then came back home to get some support from hubby David.
I couldn’t have asked for a better way to kick off this hump day than listening to Brandi Glanville‘s latest podcast, appropriately titled, Pimps, Prostitutes, and Ron Jeremy! Oh My!
But before we crack open that nut… so many puns, so little time… I have to say that I find it hilarious that Brandi just lectured bloggers about the fact that her 12-year-old son is “dabbling” in social media, and all the negative stories about Brandi’s relationship issues with Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes are just one search away from his innocent eyes. But, you know, an hour long discussion about prostitution, penises, and said 12 year old’s dad’s cheating ways is okay.
Brandi‘s latest guests were Dennis Hof, owner of the Bunny Ranch and star of HBO’s Cathouse, his girlfriend/bunny Krissy Summers, and his friend/porn star Ron Jeremy. Dennis was there to promote his book, The Art of Pimp, and I have to admit that it sounds like an interesting read. It would have been really nice to hear more about the book, but Brandican’t keep her mouth shut. Ever.
BethennyFrankel turned the tables on Andy Cohen for a special segment of Watch What Happens Live. He dished on casting mistakes he’s made, which franchise has the most behind-the-scenes drama, whose fans he worries about burning down his house, and more.
Bethenny asked Andy, thinking back to the first season of Real Housewives of Orange County, did he think it would be as big as it is today. He said the possibility hit him in season two when Matt and Jeana Keough‘s marriage fell apart. “I was like, this is like a soap opera. Like, I care about Jeana, and things are not going well for her.”
On reality TV being blamed for the demise of so many marriages, Andy shared, “I think it has accelerated marriages that weren’t working. I’ve talked to Tamra [Judge] about this. I’ve talked to Vicki [Gunvalson] about this. They were in a relationship that wasn’t working. They saw it replayed on TV, and were like, ‘Wow, this is really bad.’ They had a chorus of people saying ‘dump him, dump him’ and they actually had the balls to do it.”
