I already disliked the word “panties,” but after the (way too drawn out) pantygate story line on this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I feel like if I never hear it ever again it wouldn’t be enough for me. I am hoping that after Dorit Kemsley’s apology tour that she is really done with talking about Erika Jayne’s lack of undies and her various “misunderstandings” with Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson. I just want something new to happen in the next episode.
I am so over the repetitive nature of RHOBHthis season. I need an actual story line to watch. After many seasons of multiple plots per episode, the fans were subjected to the horrible Season 6 centered all around Munchausen accusations. This season is a teeny bit better, but we need new things to go down in the upcoming episodes and no more mentions of drama that has already been overly discussed.
Since being blackballed it’s been a very rough few years for Cedric – he’s lost Lisa’s friendship, and many other friends, and gained a bad reputation, which he says was based on a lie. Cedric spoke with Kate Casey on her Reality Life podcast and opened up about the drama with Lisa, provided some illuminating tidbits about how Reality TV works, and shared what he’s up to now.
I may not agree with everything, but I think Cedric came across with humility and self-reflection. It’s interesting stuff. Below is his story:
About Eileen, Lisa writes, “Well once again, Eileen raises the issue of another woman being manipulated by my good self. I find it rather amusing that she would perpetually, backhandedly compliment me, just by virtue of the fact that I have these extraordinary powers, but also patronizes other women by insinuating they are guilty of being feeble-minded weaklings with no opinions of their own.”
Rinna confesses to forgetting what she said in that shocking shopping scene, “So, I have to say, watching the conversation Eden and I have while shopping at the Glen is very interesting for me all these months later. There are a few things that I don’t remember saying, but sure enough here I am saying them.”
It’s possible that Kyle has just spent too much time with the RHOBH and can no longer discern someone who genuinely wants to get to know her, like Eden, from someone who is just interested in dishing some dirt to gossip about later – not mentioning any names.
I regret to inform you that last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills was, once again, all about Kim Richards‘ sobriety. At least we got to see some Erika Jayne side-boob this time though – to cover all the bases of Housewives anatomy. Honestly I can’t decide if that’s better or worse than pantygate.
The story of Kim is a sad one indeed. In fact, Kim and Kyle Richards‘ life reminds me of a book I read – a memoir written by Jack Kerouac’s daughter about her adolescence and early adulthood. I initially read it in high school and was jealous of her free-spirited life and her mother who let her do whatever she wanted; she could party, stay out all night, etc. I re-read the book in college and that time I was sad that she had zero guidance or stability.
On Eileen trying to make things better with Dorit during the lunch at Camille‘s, “I understand Eileen’s need to have this conversation in order to move forward, but it seems like Dorit’s ‘defensive’ wall is what’s making it hard for them to clear anything up.”
Kelly Ripa and husband Mark Consuelos, her co-host for the day, dish on the show’s newbie, PK, husband of Dorit Kemsley. They talk about PK possibly wishing that he could be a Real Housewife. Mark comments that PK reminds him of a Bond villain – mostly because of the accent. Kelly chimes in to say that there always seems to be one husband that wants to be a bigger part of Real Housewives and Lisa jokes, “who maybe wants to be A Housewife…I didn’t say that, did I? No.” Kelly asks Lisa if she thinks PK is that person and Lisa says “I think so. Okay I said it.”
