Was Kenya surprised that Phaedra and Kandi were spilling tea about each other? “At this point, nothing surprises me with these girls. I think Kandi was just fed up because Phaedra, she’s like a slippery greased pig, you can’t catch her!”
Tonight the stiff interactions between Dorit Kemsley and Erika Jayne continue during a shady lunch at Camille Grammer‘s new Malibu home. Dorit quizzes Erika about her music career and has some less than kind comments to make in her talking head interviews (like calling it a “hobby”). But first, can we just take a moment to appreciate that Camille is back? She revealed recently that she is even doing interview clips this season instead of just being a background player.
Erika starts off by confessing how nervous she is over the Young & the Restless part as it becomes a reality, “This week my guest role for The Young and the Restless is becoming a reality! I’m meeting with Eileen and her Executive Producer Mal at CBS Studios, and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m quite scared too, to be honest with you. The soap world is all so new to me, but that’s what life is all about, right? Having new experiences and tackling new challenges.”
First, Lisa talks about her fight against the Dog Meat Festival and the birth of The Vanderpump Dog Foundation, “As we first entered into the pet world creating Vanderpump Pets, we became slowly enlightened of the brutalities that transpired each year against dogs in China during the summer solstice. In an effort to draw attention to it, we marched to the Chinese embassy, we sent placards around the world, the slogan Stop Yulin Forever was plastered over many t-shirts, a resolution was formed, as we managed to garner interest and support from a congressman and hopefully pass through congress a resolution that would draw attention globally and end this barbarity once and for all.”
Dorit touches on her reasons for wanting to give Eileen and Rinna a chance before passing judgement, despite their past issues with Lisa Vanderpump. “I’ve gotten quite close to Kyle, but I still don’t know Lisa, Eileen or Erika very well and would like to get to know the group. I was looking forward to drinks with Lisa and Eileen. I’m aware of Lisa V’s past incidents with them, but I feel that it’s important to get to know these women for myself. I respect the success that both Lisa R and Eileen have. It’s great to speak with two hard-working women who have a lot of experience with raising children, and I’m sure I can get some tips and advice from them which I’ll appreciate!”
If there are two former RHOBH stars that I miss – it’s these two! And Adrienne’s ex-husband, Dr. Paul Nassif, too. It’d be fun to see the two of them bantering back and forth now as friends and co-parents since they’re finally through the “rocky” bits of the former marriage. I know Paul is beyond busy with Botched and running his practice, and Adrienne seems content no longer having to deal with RHOBH, but a girl can dream. At least we’ll have some Camille cameos to keep us entertained.
Eileen made Erika‘s dreams come true when she gifted her with a role on Young and the Restless. Eileen shared that the meeting with the producer went very well, “I knew Mal and Erika would hit it off and Erika would handle the meeting like a pro. But, the fact that she inspired Mal and he wants to read her is huge. That doesn’t happen every day. Nine number one hits and now she’s going to be on Young and the Restless? Is there anything Erika can’t do? To answer my own question, she certainly cannot, and she will not sink Young and the Restless!”
Dorit told everyone that PK not only had seen the Girardi family jewels, but appraised them for value at length. I think Dorit believed the reveal that Erika ‘forgot’ how to use her lady-like manners while wearing a white micro-cocktail dress was supposed to make Erika look bad. Honestly, though, Dorit’s non-stop complaining and over-analyzing, combined with Peek-K’s stalkerish staring, over what was essentially a wardrobe faux pas in poor taste, made Extra-Cheesey Dorit look worse.
As Erika herself surmised, the entire situation was, quite frankly, fishy. Like, why was Dorit so intent on telling everyone? What Eileen Davidson dubs ‘The Crotch Chronicles’ (or “SnatchChat”) becomes what Peek-K saw up Erika’s skirt. According to Dorit: everything.
