Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Kyle confronts LVP about Yolanda's children having Lyme

This week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills didn’t seem all that dramatic on the surface, but really, a lot went down in that short bit of time.  Lisa Vanderpump is sorry but maybe not quite THAT sorry for things she said.  She is speaking out tonight to defend her reasons for revealing what Mohamed Hadid sorta, kinda disclosed about Bella and Anwar’s Lyme disease diagnosis.  She wishes she could take it back, but..Reality TV. 

Lisa believes the topic wasn’t “off the table” since Yolanda Foster herself is the one who announced to the world that Bella and Anwar had the disease.  So, that part she isn’t sorry for – all topics are fair game when you sign on for reality TV.  “On the subject regarding Lyme disease, I can’t stress this enough: I believe when we initiate conversation on a reality show, whether inadvertently or not, we open the doors for discussion. I have initiated sensitive subjects myself, with regard to my children, for one… Max’s adoption, with the full understanding that as cameras were documenting this, it would be flung into a forum where many would speculate. It was a conscious choice, so people would gain a better understanding of our family dynamic.”

From what the viewers were shown last night, Kathryn Edwards didn’t say a tenth of what she initially wanted to say to Faye Resnick when finally given the chance.  Instead, she took to her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills blog to share her feelings.  She also touched on that awkward age conversation with Lisa Vanderpump

Kathryn says she was fine with LVP’s questions, “I wasn’t offended by Vanderpump’s asking me my age, I’m very proud to say how old I am. Why wouldn’t I be? And I am also very proud to have married my husband, regardless of our age difference. It’s never mattered to me. Age is a number…I can be curious about age differences, too, but that’s all it is. I want to understand couples and what makes them work. Maybe Vanderpump wanted to know what it was like to be with such a young, hot stud, haha…kidding Ken. I found Vanderpump’s questions engaging and funny, but I am sure others might not see it that way. I guess that those are things I would also ask and then be surprised I offended someone. And that’s all I have to say about that.”

Yolanda on RHOBH

Look – I’m just gonna say it, because it has to be said: Yolanda Foster should not be part of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills this season. If Yolanda is too ill to fully participate, she should have taken a leave of absence to selfie from the comfort of her bed.

It’s not that I believe illness or family tragedy have no place on a mostly fluffy reality show. I fully agree the storylines should be real and provide an honest-ish glimpse into these women’s lives. But Lyme Disease has infected everything! Plus Yolanda is not giving us realness (about her own life or, apparently, allegedly, her children’s?), nor is she giving us the aspirational living required from the WEALTHIEST Housewives zipcode. Instead she’s giving us… well I don’t know if it’s Chronic Lyme, misdiagnosed menopause, Munchausen by Wikipedia, denial over an ailing marriage, or silicone poisoning?

Eileen Davidson on WWHL

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Eileen Davidson was Andy Cohen’s guest on Watch What Happens Live last night. Eileen shared the spotlight with former Knots Landing actress Michelle Lee, who didn’t hesitate to defend Faye Resnick when her name inevitably came up. Actually, neither did Eileen.

At the mere mention of her name, Michelle said, “Faye Resnick is a very nice person.” Eileen added, “She is being slammed right now in the press for some reason. She is a lovely person and beautiful inside and out.” Surmising that the renewed interest in the O.J. Simpson murder case is the reason Faye‘s being dragged through the mud as of late, Eileen repeated, “She is a lovely woman.”

Yolanda Foster was only on tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for about six minutes, but she has plenty to say about the episode!  Yolanda talks about her co-stars and their doubts about her Lyme disease, and Mohamed Hadid is throwing in his two cents as well.

Yolanda starts off by sharing her disappointment in her co-stars.  “Tonight’s show was disheartening. Still, I am the subject of conversation amongst “friends.” Looks like I got out of dodge right on time at that barbecue. The only thing I saw grilling was gossip.  I have nothing to prove and know that my journey is public due to the job I’ve chosen as a Housewife, but I can’t accept something so delicate as my children’s health being talked about in such a way. I know I’m not the only mother who would speak to this… It’s one thing when your integrity is doubted, spoken of behind your back, but it strikes another cord when it’s your children.

Erika Jayne

With the Bethenny Frankel drama behind her, Erika Girardi chooses to focus on “more important topics” in her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills blog.

About last week’s episode, Erika shares, “I appreciate that the women and I were able to sit around the dinner table and have a deeper conversation. I felt like I got to know them better, and I am starting to see more of who they are.”
