The dog has also caused a lot of issues between Kim and her sister Kyle Richards, especially since Kingsley bit Kyle’s daughter Alexia and she had to be hospitalized. Now Kyle is going out her way to distance herself from Kim’s doggy drama by asking to be dismissed from a lawsuit filed against her sister.
Let’s be honest: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is not as good as it used to be. The glam squads and over-the-top parties are great and all, but we need more compelling stories than arguments about glassware and who’s best friends with who.
With current batch of ladies, it doesn’t seem like that’s a possibility. It seems like no one wants to be the bad guy (except for Dorit Kemsley here and there- no matter how much she denies everything she says and does) or get caught on camera without makeup, let alone actually reveal the personal inner workings of their lives. They are in dire need of a casting shakeup. The first season of this show addressed addiction issues, abusive relationships, and adultery among its story lines and now we are subjected to arguments about being late to lunch. This is a stark contrast from the show that this used to be.
It felt like Dorit Kemsley came on Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsas a loyal soldier to do Lisa Vanderpump’s bidding, so it was pretty surprising when their friendship hit a bump in the road before Dorit’s second season even ended. Sure this was bound to happen eventually, but it seemed like Dorit had a lot more drama to stir up with the rest of the women before she and Lisa started to have issues on camera.
Ultimately, I feel like these two will stick together since Lisa loves Dorit on the strength of loving her husband they are close friends. I feel like Dorit knows where all the bodies are buried at Villa Rosa and I’m sure that Lisa knows about all the secrets Dorit may be hiding at her rented mansion, so I’m all for the discord, but only if it turns into a full-blown feud. I’m not here for an elongated argument over something inconsequential. I want to see insult hurling and tea spilling.
I hate to admit this, but Dorit Kemsley is carrying this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hillson her back. If Dorit wasn’t around, we would be subjected to a show about glam squads, home renovations, and endless self-promotion. As irritating as Dorit can be, especially when she’s coming for my beloved Camille Grammer, she is the only one bringing the drama.
Obviously Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is not a fan of Dorit’s and I don’t blame her, but hopefully on some level she is grateful for Dorit giving her a story line and an opportunity to get the viewers on her side.
Even though Dorit called Camille a “c**t” for no reason, told Camille that she would give her a strap-on, and gave Erika Girardipanties as a gag gift last season, Dorit did not find it at all funny when Camille gave her a ball gag during the last episode. Apparently those who dish it out, cannot take it.
Maybe time does heal all wounds. She even made her way to the clubhouse for an episode of Watch What Happens Live. They did not actually discuss the possibility of bringing Brandi back as a Real Housewife, I’m still hoping for it since she makes a point to be up to date on all of the latest drama in Beverly Hills.
On last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills people were celebrating all sorts of things and this required lingerie shopping, candles that looked like cupcakes, and wearing giant garbage bags to take naps in. The biggest news, however, was that based upon the strength of her perfect gift-giving, Lisa Vanderpump chose a new court favorite. Teddi Bear Mellencamp Arroyave – you have arrived! Elevated to the premiere spot as Lisa’s mean girl in waiting. Meanwhile it was off with Dorit Kemsley‘s head! Or at least one of her ridiculous hairstyles.
Somehow I think Teddi will learn from Kyle Richards and Dorit, and won’t make the mistake of double-crossing Lisa… Doing all she can to stay in good graces. After all, Teddi is all about accountability and we finally got a glimpse of what that entails. Essentially Teddi is a diet and exercise baby-sitter. Rich people will buy anything!
Aside from getting dragged into arguments about glassware and hotel stays, the viewers really haven’t had the chance to “get to know” Teddi Mellencamp Arroyaveon Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this year. There have been the gratuitous interrogations about what it was like for her to grow up as John Mellencamp’s daughter, but she hasn’t had a lot of spotlight on her own personal life.
That might not have anything to do with the story lines or editing. Even Teddi herself admits that she just wasn’t herself while she was filming this season.
