Before her last romantic relationship (I’m trying to prevent certain people from being relevant by not mentioning them), the OG of the OC Vicki Gunvalson was best known for bragging talking about her insurance business, how hard she works, and how she’s bringing in a lot of money. Aside from whooping it up, Vicki was all about her business when it came to conversation topics. Vicki has to be shocked and upset to find out one of her own employees stole thousands of dollars from her business.
Obviously, anyone would be upset about that, but someone who is so focused on her business and takes so much pride in her success has to feel especially hurt and vulnerable in response to this situation. “Poor Vicki” is not a phrase that I use pretty often, but you have to admit that there is always some sort of controversy going on with her. It’s no wonder why she’s the only original cast member remaining on The Real Housewives of Orange County: the drama never stops.
Unlike when Phaedra was dead silent while Marlo Hampton brought the undercover lesbian accusations to light during the glamping trip, Phaedra is actually talking when it comes to her divorce and the Porsha vs. Kandi feud.
Unfortunately for Kyle Richards, she doesn’t get to watch the video footage that the viewers have seen of Lisa Rinna feeding Eden with “alternative facts” about Kyle’s relationship with Kim Richards. Kyle has had to piece this puzzle together on her own and use her personal judgment to figure out who said what when it comes to those enabling accusations that Eden has been spreading. Yes, we all know she got that version of the story straight from Rinna, but at this point in the episodes, Kyle is trying to figure things out, Eden is trying to explain where she’s coming from, and Rinna is doing her best to pretend that she has Alzheimer’s.
This Real Housewives of Atlanta season has been heavily focused on Kandi Burruss. For years she was just there to promote her products and interject here and there when other people got into it, but this season is very Kandi-centered thanks to Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams starting rumors that she is a closeted lesbian who hooked up with Shamea Morton. Kandi confronted Porsha about her pot stirring during the last episode.
It wasn’t all drama for Kandi though. At the very least, she seemed to be beaming with pride when her daughter Riley Burruss followed in her musical footsteps and recorded a track of her own. Needless to say, Kandi has a lot to say about the last episode.
While Porsha really went in with the rumor spreading and instigating, Kenya was calm, cool, collected and gifted Cynthia Bailey with a vaginal rejuvenation. I don’t know whyKenya felt like Cynthia needed to get that procedure done since the past few seasons have had several story lines about the lack of sexual activity with her and her ex Peter Thomas. It didn’t seem necessary, but I guess it’s the thought that counts.
The cool thing about being a reality TV star is that you get to be famous and make money for being yourself instead of working hard on acting or singing. But apparently there’s something in the water since Luann de Lesseps has an acting role in the upcoming feature film Babymoon. And now Porsha Williams is trying her hand at acting.
On one hand, I cannot imagine Porsha being anyone other than herself, but at the same time she does seem to front a lot when it comes to manufacturing story lines for Real Housewives of Atlanta, so she already has had some “acting” practice if you think about it. So what is Porsha working on these days?
Are they paying Kim Richards to provide a season’s worth of plot lines during this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Or is she just signing a release form to be taped while she hangs out with her sister, Kyle Richards? Either way, Lisa Rinna and Eden Sassoon have made it clear that they have nothing to bring to this show since pretty much all they have contributed was gossip about “Kyle enabling Kim.”
Unfortunately for Kyle, she doesn’t get the luxury that viewers have – Kyle doesn’t get the opportunity to watch the action that previously happened when she wasn’t present. She has to form her conclusions based on what happens in front of her and what she hears from the other RHOBH ladies. And Kyle was confused trying to piece this whole mess together.
