Teddi attempts to shed light on Erika leaving the house and heading off to a hotel and shares her REAL issue, “the beach house and the mysterious disappearance of Erika Jayne. It was weird; I stand by that. I completely empathize with Erika as I’m sure women everywhere watching do; I can see why she’d prefer to not stay up until 2AM getting tipsy and humping my picnic table.” But Teddi then shares what we DIDN’T see on the show. “What we later discovered that night— and what you didn’t see—was that her assistant had already driven to Dana Point separately and got a hotel room for her. Again, I didn’t have a problem with her leaving to stay in a hotel—I offered that option when I invited everyone. The issue is why spend the day pretending you’re going to stay over, but as soon as the camera crew leaves you have your assistant come pick you up?”
‘Money Can’t Buy You Class’ – that’s certainly the case with Erika Girardi and Dorit Kemsley. There are some Real Housewives friendships I relish and delight in, and there are others, like these two, that fill you with a certain disingenuous dread (think Gretchen and Tamra). On last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, Dorit crossed one friend to try and secure another. And the worst part – despite copious warnings, she seemed oblivious! Like when the signs read: “Don’t swim! Shark invested waters” yet you you dive right in.
Actually the worst part is that after all the bickering between herself, Lisa Vanderpump, and Kyle Richards they all managed to have a rip-roaring, super wedgie-tastic, twerking good time getting drunk and silly at Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave‘s beach house. It was the perfect way to bond these girls and put all the bad blood behind them, then DORIT ruined it all! Dorit and her mouth. Can someone stuff a designer sock in it? PeeeeeeeKaaaaaay?
On last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, newcomer Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave tried to get her co-stars to relax and let their guards down a bit by having a low-key get together at her beach house. She says the ladies were to bring a dish to pass, but instead of food, they brought plates piled with drama.
Teddi shared in her newest blog, “I love that Dorit and I could joke about being late and stemless glasses. But soon, we were in a situation with Kyle, Dorit, and Lisa Vanderpump, which I found out had to do with Kyle “defending” me. I was so wrapped up in unpacking groceries and saving those brown Whole Foods bags (those bitches cost me ten cents!) that I missed a lot of the conversation. I really appreciated Kyle trying to help me out on the boat, so I was baffled at why Dorit was so upset that Kyle “butted in” on our conversation when Lisa Vanderpump did the same thing first.”
There is just so much reality TV action to keep up with, from the shows themselves, to the latest headlines in between seasons, and then there are all of the social media posts. No need to worry about keeping up with the Instagram posts though. This week’s Instagram Roundup has you covered with all of the best, weirdest, and most interesting reality TV star photos from the week.
Just last month Yolanda Hadid confessed that she had a new man in her life, but was keeping things private for a while. The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was doing some press for her newest reality show this week and outlets are now reporting that Yolanda’s new boyfriend is Matt Minnis, founder of a charitable donations company called Pledgeling.
Kyle Richards is still reeling over Lisa Vanderpump storming out of the restaurant in a huff this week on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Kyle shared her side of the situation in her latest blog. She stands firm that Lisa was just miffed over her and Dorit’s “moment” and not because they didn’t pay enough attention to her lawsuit news.
“When we first sat down Lisa mentioned the lawsuit that she had been hit with had been dropped. I had purposely not talked about the lawsuit out of respect to Lisa. Yes, it was on TMZ and other outlets, but that doesn’t mean we want to talk about it and give it more attention. I was very happy to hear that it had been dropped, and both Dorit and I both expressed that. I love Lisa and Ken and was happy to know that that weight had been lifted off their shoulders. We talked about it for a while and talked about not wanting negativity in our lives then cheered to it being dropped.”
The Housewives discussed the drama on their shows. Kyle was fresh off of the episode when Lisa Vanderpump ditched Dorit Kemsley in a restaurant and of course, Bethenny had to answer some questions about her costar Luann de Lesseps following her arrest and rehab stint.
Last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills led to yet another issue between Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump about defining the boundaries of their friendship. I see both sides of this argument. I’d also like to remind them that in the middle of their bickering is a little follicle-ly unstable blonde woman named Dorit Kemsley, who cannot and will not stop talking shit about everyone she calls a friend.
Actually last night everyone (*except Dorit*) was more human. I credit Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave‘s influence. She’s chill, relaxed, absent of pretense, and despite being publicly scolded and denigrated over inappropriate stemware application, she STILL invited everyone to her ‘beach cottage’ for a potluck. Something about casseroles and dips puts everyone in a ‘let’s get real’ mood. Huddled around Teddi’s kitchen island, surrounded by pita chips served from Pottery Barn dishes, the women all showed their vulnerable and softer roots as opposed to their usual Febreezed exterior.
