One thing I love about this show is that I can always expect Kyle Richards to be not only badly and unfortunately dressed (what is she thinking with all these muumuu-sized sleeves – just wear a kaftan already!), but also grasping for acceptance. Only Kyle would get excited about swinging a Birkin around years after everyone has gotten over them. And yes, it’s a lovely color, and it’s still obviously an extremely expensive bag, but girl, just like we have MOVED ON from Kim Richards drama, we have moved on from Birkin worship. Except Kyle has done neither. We do not need an opening episode that drags Rambles up from the dregs, but apparently Kyle thinks we do.
It took a lot of time and a lot of effort, but things have truly turned around for Kim Richards. After many years of legal issues and struggles with sobriety, Kim has completed her Alcoholics Anonymous classes and now she is done with all of her community service requirements.
Kim’s 2015 arrest has been haunting her for nearly three years at this point and now that this final piece is complete, Kim can move forward and focus on something that she truly enjoys like being a grandmother or taking care of her horses.
The Real Housewives taglines are a huge deal. Anything short of iconic just isn’t good enough. With so many cities, Housewives, and seasons, it is tough to be original these days. Even so, the pressure increases each season.
Season 8 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premieres tonight, but the taglines have already been released. Some of the ladies really hit the mark and others not so much…
Most former Housewives do not admit that they still keep up with the Real Housewives show. I don’t know if it’s because they have bruised egos and don’t want to admit that they watch or because they really don’t watch the franchise anymore, but Brandi Glanville is not one of those alums. She is a very avid Housewives viewer and she has a lot of opinions about everything and everyone on every show. One person that she took major issue with was the New Jersey new girl Margaret Josephs.
For the most part, the audience is really warming up to Margaret (minus the initial shock from the pigtails), and I just figured that Brandi would be one of those fans who loves her since they both take pride in their unfiltered humor. Unfortunately, part of Margaret’s story line struck a very personal cord with Brandi. Nope, Brandi does not have a desire to run a lifestyle brand or rehash childhood nicknames or claim a friendship with Joan Rivers. This is actually a LeAnn Rimes-related issue.
Erika’s even opening up a little bit more beyond the catsuits and glam squad. Last season, Erika brought the camera crew home to visit her mother. Now she’s discussing that and sharing her advice for anyone else who wants to be a Real Housewife.
