Just last month Yolanda Hadid confessed that she had a new man in her life, but was keeping things private for a while. The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was doing some press for her newest reality show this week and outlets are now reporting that Yolanda’s new boyfriend is Matt Minnis, founder of a charitable donations company called Pledgeling.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Kyle Richards is still reeling over Lisa Vanderpump storming out of the restaurant in a huff this week on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Kyle shared her side of the situation in her latest blog. She stands firm that Lisa was just miffed over her and Dorit’s “moment” and not because they didn’t pay enough attention to her lawsuit news.
“When we first sat down Lisa mentioned the lawsuit that she had been hit with had been dropped. I had purposely not talked about the lawsuit out of respect to Lisa. Yes, it was on TMZ and other outlets, but that doesn’t mean we want to talk about it and give it more attention. I was very happy to hear that it had been dropped, and both Dorit and I both expressed that. I love Lisa and Ken and was happy to know that that weight had been lifted off their shoulders. We talked about it for a while and talked about not wanting negativity in our lives then cheered to it being dropped.”
The Housewives discussed the drama on their shows. Kyle was fresh off of the episode when Lisa Vanderpump ditched Dorit Kemsley in a restaurant and of course, Bethenny had to answer some questions about her costar Luann de Lesseps following her arrest and rehab stint.
Last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills led to yet another issue between Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump about defining the boundaries of their friendship. I see both sides of this argument. I’d also like to remind them that in the middle of their bickering is a little follicle-ly unstable blonde woman named Dorit Kemsley, who cannot and will not stop talking shit about everyone she calls a friend.
Actually last night everyone (*except Dorit*) was more human. I credit Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave‘s influence. She’s chill, relaxed, absent of pretense, and despite being publicly scolded and denigrated over inappropriate stemware application, she STILL invited everyone to her ‘beach cottage’ for a potluck. Something about casseroles and dips puts everyone in a ‘let’s get real’ mood. Huddled around Teddi’s kitchen island, surrounded by pita chips served from Pottery Barn dishes, the women all showed their vulnerable and softer roots as opposed to their usual Febreezed exterior.
Dorit Kemsley reveals in her newest blog that she doesn’t have high hopes for moving past the drama with co-star Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star reflects on PK’s birthday party and her attempts to smooth things over with Teddi.
Dorit shared, “Because PK is like my very own James Bond, I went with a 007 theme for the party. In keeping with the theme, I decided that it couldn’t get more Casino Royale than flying a helicopter to a speed boat then onto a yacht.” Adding, “Seeing him break down in tears of happiness when we entered just made everything so worthwhile.”
Bethenny Frankel isn’t the only Real Housewives star throwing her support behind Puerto Rico and the efforts to help restore the island months after the devastating storms ripped through. Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Joyce Giraud is also helping the people of Puerto Rico and revealed that she was not only on a mission trip to the island, but she also was doing some filming of a project as well!
Joyce shared photos of her mission work and captioned it, “I have so many pics to share with you guys. I’m sorry for being MIA the last week. I was in my lindo #PUERTORICO doing my mission and filming something I hope to share soon.”
Joyce posed alongside her husband, Michael Ohoven, and wrote, “It has been very overwhelmingly beautiful to be able to go and visit families, bring them love, encouragement and a little help. I’m so proud of my people! I’m so proud to have been born in an island full of love; where everyone helps each other out. Where neighbors stand up in times of need and where we know that together… Puerto Rico will rise again! I have to thank my beautiful husband for always standing by me. For understanding my pain and for helping me do something about it. I love you baby. I’m so proud to walk through life with you. Thank you for standing by me and for being as #BoricuaDeCorazon as I am. Your love is infinite and priceless please slide to see some of the beautiful pictures. I promise I’ll share more soon.”
Check out Joyce‘s photos below. We’ll keep you updated on any news of the project she filmed during the trip. Hopefully it’ll bring more awareness to the help that is still needed there!
Everyone and everything on this season’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is getting on my last nerve except for Kyle Richards…which has me wondering if I’m suffering from some horrible disorder. When ol’ Splits McGee is the lady I’m vying to befriend, you know it’s bad! I’m enjoying Erika Girardi and am glad to see she’s burying the hatchet with Dorit Kemsley. However, Dorit (and her accent) is condescending and painful, so there’s that. The verdict is still out as to my opinion on Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, but Dorit’s treatment of this woman at every turn has me at least sympathetic. Also, am I the only one who loves Vanderpump Rules Lisa but is indifferent towards RHOBH Lisa V? What is my problem this season?
Do I need Bravo to bring back Taylor Armstrong?
Maybe it’s simply the lack of genuine drama that is disappointing. Are we still talking about late-gate and shaming bartenders over
wine glasses champagne flutes? If your biggest worry is whether your driver will be able to navigate rush hour traffic to make it to the helipad so you can surprise your husband with a chopper ride and floating casino for his fiftieth birthday, there likely isn’t much to scream about. At least Teddi seems to have the ability to take the pettiness with a grain of salt…at the moment.
Ugh – it’s official, Dorit Kemsley is the one with multiple personalities, not Erika. It’s like Dorit’s evil doppelgänger does all these bad behaviors on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, then Dorit swoops in with a new hair style and a new accent to pretend she has “absolutely no idea” what anyone is talking about because she, a woman of impeccable etiquette, would never EVER call someone a C-word during dinner, or throw a fit over the wrong wine glass at a party, or be one hour late to a drinks meeting then lie about it.
No, she will throw Casino Royale parties where arrives via helicopter in designer gowns, waving to her people and smiling graciously. Dorit’s idealized self is not communicating with her actual self and we’re having problems here. Big time!
