On last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills I learned many important lessons 1) Lyme Disease is airborne via rude comments (and leaky silicone); 2) Gigi Hadid is a child prodigy in the kitchen; 3) Pink heels are a patented trademark and copyright of Lisa Vanderpump; 4) Late-night pharmaceutical commercials are correct: depression hurts; 5) 70 is the new 17 as pertains to male horniness; 6) swan attacks are serious (thriller starring Kim Richards coming soon – Swanado: The Revenge Of Hanky); 7) There is an uglier, more overpriced item in Beverly Hills than $25,000 sunglasses and that is the Cartier Panther ring; And finally 8) Erika Jayne is living out all of our ABBA disco queen fantasies – except we’ve never heard of her. I still like the bitch. She’s fierce. (note sarcasm of my language, but I do like Erika because she’s sassy and not easily intimidated, but still classy).
OK, well see ya next week – I gotta make sure I didn’t contract Lyme Disease from my TV. Cause like that shit is VIRAL. Even Kyle Richards may have a little bit of Lyme, or Munchausen By Proxy From Friends. I think that’s called ‘Keeping Up With The Vanderpump-itis” and yes, Kyle is quite afflicted!
“What Does Sick Look Like, Lisa?” Ellie asks, putting Lipsa on blast for being judgmental based on Yolanda’s Instagram feed. Because even though sometimes Yolanda looks the picture of health, and sometimes looks like a Jiffy Pop monster, doesn’t mean her Lyme Disease isn’t real!
Ellie knows from experience what living with chronic, unrelenting illness is like, because she is “very sick, actually the sickest” and suffers from ALS.
Above, Yolanda supports Ellie through a medical treatment earlier this year.
After Kyle posted a rather awkward – OK hideously uncomfortable – photo of her with Kathy Hilton on Christmas Eve, it was assumed the family tensions that have yet again become a major storyline on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills were over. New Year, New drama, right?! Or not!
Nothing is merry and joyful between Brandi Glanville and Lisa Vanderpump this holiday season. Instead of sending Christmas cards and well wishes, these two former co-stars are busy battling via text message – sort of.
Lisa and Brandi’s dislike for one another grows deeper by the day. Lisa threw a party this week at Pump and during the soiree she received a ‘nasty’ text from Brandi. According to TMZ, Brandi wrote,”Merry Christmas vanderC*** and yes i am having my moment AND it’s amazing!!! How is yours???? hahahahah #karmasabitch Or is it a c***?? Hahahaha.”
Eileen Davidson is not about to get caught in the middle of Munchausen Soup. But in this week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she walked right into a steaming hot broth of it being stirred right up – by friend and castmate, Lisa Rinna. In her blog, Eileen comments on the more lighthearted moments of the episode, but does warn that the SH*T is about to hit the fan when it comes to the endless drama ofYolanda Foster’s health, and the myriad of questions surrounding it.
“Ken [Todd] seems to be having the best birthday week ever, right?” jokes Eileen. “He finally got his miniature horse, and his reaction was pretty priceless. But wait, there are two of them! And like he said, twice the poop. Hmmmmm. Maybe not the best birthday after all?”
Last night on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills the seeds of doubt concerning about Yolanda Foster‘s mysterious illness were officially sewn; woven into the delicate silk fabric of her friendships with almost invisible stitches anchoring tiny beads of suspicion into the internal boning of a couture gown. So – is it Munchhausen syndrome or is Lyme?! OOoOH Goody!
Additionally Yolanda’s motives appear more complex. Could she be amplifying her illness to save a sagging marriage? Possibly give herself a purpose now that her days of a world-class beauty are over? Is it a reaction to Empty Nest Syndrome (do not give Caroline Manzo any ideas!). Yolanda’s Lyme symptoms and the crazy-ass lengths she is going to for treatments seem decidedly elevated from a mere cry for attention. They seem connected to her self-identity.
In the weeks since announcing their separation Yolanda has been vocal about their amazing love, while promoting her miraculous 60% brain function improvements. Meanwhile David hasn’t uttered a note. Finally David is speaking publicly about his divorce from the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star and America’s most devoted Chronic Lyme patient.
