I'm just gonna admit it: Kyle Richards is making me very crazy! Despite wasting an entire season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hillscomplaining about how she didn't want to talk about the cheating allegations lobbed at her husband Mauricio Umansky, Kyle has talked about them non-stop, every. single. chance. she. gets.
At yesterday's final reunion segment she spent an exorbitant amount of time ranting at Lisa Vanderpump for bringing up said rumors on camera because it "hurt her feelings" and brought attention to something she must on some level believe doesn't want out there. Despite extracting an apology from Lisa and promising to move on and move forward, Kyle devotes her final Bravo blog to blaming Lisa for igniting the cheating rumors.
Of course we have to begin by rehashing the same regurgitated storyline about Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, and the cheating tabloids that never were. It's like Kyle forced Bravo to put in her contract that this matter must be discussed – at length – once per episode.
In her latest Bravo blog, Snarlton explains that dealing with Splits is pointless. "I refuse to start a shouting match with this grown woman who is overbearing and who is obviously extremely angry. What's the bloody point when she wouldn't allow me to answer any questions but just shouted over me?" Carlton complains.
"When a person can call me such horrific names like anti-Semetic, compares my religion and symbol to serial killer Richard Ramirez, and then immediately admits that she did know what a pentagram looked like — why would I deal with such a vile being?" Carlton questions.
The other shows on our list saw an increase this week. Most impressive, 2.366 million watchedBasketball Wives L.A., which is a season three high and a whopping 500,000 more views than last week. Teen Mom 2saw a bump up of 300,000 when 2.171 million tuned in to see Jenelle fail a drug test.
What to do, what to do…it seems poor Kyle Richards has gotten herself into somewhat of pickle. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star turned on friend Lisa Vanderpump to align with former nemesis Brandi Glanville, and where does that leave her? Smack dab in the middle of some drama that Brandi is now attributing to Kyle's loose lips. Kaftan shouldn't be surprised to learn that Brandi is a loose cannon, right? Not only has Kyle now been accused of Calabashing Lisa and Todd's finances and past, but she can't catch a break from Carlton Gebbia. Perhaps it's time to split!
Taking to her Bravo blog to set the record straight, Kyle begins, "For last week's Reunion I didn't write a blog because I feel that the Reunion IS where we explain everything. It's also not to easy go back (almost a year now) and keep rehashing these issues while trying to move forward. However, a lot of you asked me to, so I'm going to address a couple of things from last week before I move on to this week…"
We're two-thirds of the way through the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion, so I think it's safe to say we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. We need to power through, people! Joyce Giraud is never going to see eye-to-eye with Brandi Glanville, and I have to agree with her assertion that Brandi's depression (and I have had people very, very close to me suffer from it, so I know it's nothing to take lightly) isn't a pass to treat people badly. Do I doubt that Brandi suffers from it? Absolutely not, but that isn't an excuse to be so hateful! Joyce also takes on Yolanda Foster and kind of disses Lady Gaga…that part I can't condone!
She begins her Bravo blog, "Hola Mis Amores! First of all: THANK YOU!!!! Thank you so much for voting for me as the Loveliest Locks. It was very sweet, and I'm so honored to have been chosen by all of you — as I do think all the ladies have amazing hair, especially my friend Kyle [Richards]. Your love and support through this journey has made everything worth it. In this portion of the reunion…"
Reunions… so draining! There is rarely any fresh drama, there is a lot of preening about how certain slights are the worst slights ever-ever, while other people's feelings just cannot compare. And it's just a lot of back-n-forth nonsense. Even Andy Cohen was visibly annoyed last night. Clearly he has reached the same point the rest of us have with the Richards sisters, meaning just stop whining! Go do your splits and rambles on another show.
Before that Andy calls Brandi Glanville out on doing something to her cheeks. She denies all the fillers and claims her cheeks are real. She makes Kim touch them. Kim tentatively reaches a trembly hand out and pokes gently, before laughing nervously about how it feels like skin. Like her werepuppy. I feel like this is the first human contact Kim has had since the late-90's. Andy side-eyes Brandi.
"I don't know whether I am staying," Lisaadmits to RadarOnline. “Everyone wants to stay, but I don’t know. I have a lot to consider I am opening a new business, I have Vanderpump Rules and let’s see if they both get picked up and let Bravo make the decision and offer and see where we go from there.”
Lisa cites the direction the show took this season has been a major consideration. "If it becomes about a bitch fest then it is not something I signed up for; but if it becomes about documenting my life, which is the show I signed up for and having fun and supporting women that is something I want to do," Lisa explains. “But the way the show was in the end, the last episodes, that is not something I would care to repeat. I don’t know right now I have to be honest."
