Tonight continues the battle of the vajaynejayne as Erika Griradi and Dorit Kemsley (plus her plus one PK) discuss the minutia of pantygate. At this point I think they should all just call it even by joining a nudist colony. ENOUGH! Seriously – it is Eileen Davidson levels of obsession – and beyond.
I hate to be a hater, but it’s usually pretty tough for me to take any Real Housewives side projects seriously. As much as I love the housewives (which is a lot), it’s difficult for me to think them as actresses, lifestyle experts, entrepreneurs, or whatever else they claim to be. With that said, six current and former Housewives are set to star in a sitcom together.
Yes, you read that right- not a reality show, but a sitcom. Still, the show is a reality TV satire, so they aren’t straying too far from the norm.
If I could be anyone on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it would be Kyle Richards. She is an OG cast member. She is on good terms with everyone and is bringing in the cash with all of her side ventures. She definitely has the best thing going for her out of everyone in this cast.
Aside from defending her sister Kim Richards (again), Kyle had (another) easy season and I can’t hate on her for that. Fortunately for her, she doesn’t have too many loose ends to tie up. Luckily for us, she did share some of her opinions and insights about the show in an interview with Heather McDonald.
After a tough season last year, Lisa Vanderpump definitely turned things around this time. Well, either that, or Lisa Rinna just screwed up enough to take away from what everyone else was doing. But let’s be real, that party Vanderpump threw for the finale was immaculate and she definitely reclaimed her throne by the end of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 7.
Still, Lisa Vanderpump couldn’t resist shading LisaRinna and supporting her loyal soldier Dorit Kemsley before the season officially comes to a halt.
Still, I can’t help feeling like Lisa Rinna used her as a scapegoat in her vendetta against Kim Richards and her quest for more screen time. So I was actually pumped when Eden remembered that she has a speaking role on this show and came at Rinna during the season finale. Rinna deserved to have her ass handed to her after the crap she pulled all year. Is Eden the hero we were all hoping for this season? Maybe…
Does Lisa Rinna have something on Eileen Davidson. I get that they’ve been friends for years and know each other from the soap opera life, but Eileen is just so loyal to Rinna. There is definitely something to be admired there (kind of), but at the same time, I’m so confused.
Other than the blind loyalty to Rinna and dragging out that whole “affair” thing with Lisa Vanderpump, Eileen is the most level-headed person in the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast. So I just don’t get how she can stick by Rinna after her crusade against Kim Richards. There is no chance that Rinna actually “forgot” that she said “Kim was close to death.” I have no idea how Eileen has been defending this all season – even after watching the episodes.
I have to give props to Kyle. She knows how to play this reality TV thing to her advantage. Pretty much every cast member is always on her side and she’s in good enough favor with the audience that she can plug any project she wants, so of course she answered Andy Cohen’s questions very carefully.
