I was always surprised Joyce was fired after one season. I loved that she wasn’t afraid to speak her mind, even against unpopular opinion, and I see that hasn’t changed. Reacting to the reunion on Twitter, Joyce defended Lisa against the manipulation accusations and is annoyed that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has become “the Munchausen show.”
“It was just such an awful season,” said Lisa. “I felt like I was under attack.”
So who has Lisa labeled as the culprit for stealing her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills joy? Why that would be…Lipsa! “She might as well have hit me with a baseball bat on the head,” laughed Lisa, of the damage done.
The final part of the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion was all about owning the undefinable IT – what that “IT” is, we’re not sure. Lisa Vanderpump was owning no part in offending anyone, or the chicanery behind manipulating others into questioning Yolanda Foster‘s Lyme Disease. Other than Kyle Richards, the only person Lisa deemed worthy was Ken, who, despite pissing all the women off, made no appearance last night. Ken was too busy relaxing in the Villa Rosa gardens amid the splendor of mini horses and Pomeranians. Or, who knows, maybe he was doing gourmet Jello Shots with Mohamed and David! #LifeWithoutLyme
We begin with Lisa explaining why she didn’t open up about her past abuse when Eileen Davidson shared hers. Lisa didn’t feel comfortable sharing in front of Ken. Which seems to be a problem; since season 3 Ken has made a habit of attending events with Lisa, acting as a guard dog between her and the other women. It’s a bit silly, and, as Eileen tried to point out (in between Yolanda constantly interrupting), this wall Lisa has up – physically and metaphorically – prevents her from bonding and forming true friendships with the women.
Andy reads Rinna some Tweets from viewers and notes how much they were disliking her on Twitter tonight. One person asked if all this drama stirring was an attempt by Rinna to secure her job next season. She says “absolutely not. I couldn’t care less whether or not I’m there next season. I’m there to do my job.” Andy asks “what’s your job?” Lisa says, “to be authentic and be real and to react to what’s going on in the moment.”
I don’t know what I would do if it wasn’t for the Real Housewives franchise. I have watched every episode of every season in every city multiple times, no matter how I feel about the content. With that said, this season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has definitely been its worst – by far. As much as I love these ladies, there are so many reasons why Season 6 of RHOBH has been its worst. No matter how much I stan for this show, I cannot deny this. And I’m sure that I’m not the only one wishing for a redo on this one.
Typically, RHOBH is chock full of story lines, but this season just dragged on and on. Don’t get me wrong, I still watched every episode a million times, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I usually do. And this is something that made me sad. Hopefully someone at Bravo who has some power is reading this right now and will do what they can to avoid these same mistakes next season.
Apparently, TMZ didn’t get the memo that Kim‘s recovery is private, because they went and shared that bit of breaking news with the world. Somewhere, theReal Housewives of Beverly Hills star hissed, “Shut your f-ing mouth, TMZ! I’ve had enough of you, you beast!”
