RHOBH is not Yolanda’s first foray into reality TV. Back when she was engaged to David Foster and planning their wedding of the century, she was a cast member of Hollywood Vrouwen, aka Hollywood Women, before she got her bigger break on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Fun fact: we can thank Hollywood Women for this little nugget.
In the spirit of Throwback Thursday, we give you Pre-Housewives Yolanda. For no reason other than “just cuz.”
Check out the videos below. Just an FYI: she switches back and forth between Dutch and English.
Kim Richards may not have been a regular Real Housewives of Beverly Hillscast member this season, but she wanted to share her thoughts on this week’s reunion episode. Kim shared her joy over her upcoming grandchild and also gave her take on Lisa Rinna’s behavior – and more – this season.
“I want to start by saying thank you all for all the love, prayers and encouragement that you showed Monty and my family over these last two years.” Kim misses him immensely, “but he has given me a new strength I never even knew!” Another thing that is giving Kim motivation and strength? The news that she’s going to be a grandma! “By now I’m sure you’ve heard the news that I am going to be a grandma. My daughter Brooke and son-in-law Thayer are expecting a little boy! I can’t wait for this exciting new chapter in our lives. I am thrilled and excited to be Grandma. I know Monty is up there watching over all of us. He is now our true guardian angel!”
Just because Brandi Glanville is no longer a cast member on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills does not mean that the show’s fans have lost an interest in her life. In fact, I feel like it means that people are even more curious about what she’s been up to. Love her or hate her, you have to admit that Brandi has always been entertaining on RHOBH.
A part of Brandi‘s presence on the show had to do with her navigating life as a single mom and navigating the dating scene. Lately there have been rumors that she has been dating fellow reality star Theo Von, from Road Rules, The Challenge, and Last Comic Standing, but Brandi has set the record straight. She is not tied down down and is crushing on three different dudes these days.
Here’s what the women of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills don’t get: We do want a fabulous story – even if it means running over the “dead bodies” of dull Housewives filled with overly-inflated hubrises. IfLisa Vanderpump wants to be the metaphorical “Dexter” of Bravo, then by all means, do. Especially if it means I, as a viewer, get more exposure to diamonds and mini horses, than I do IV fluids and arguments about nothing. This show is supposed to be about glamour, which is why I don’t mind Kyle Richards wearing a ballgown to her BBQ and having it catered by a team of gourmet George Foreman Grill experts. We can get paper plates, hot dogs, and beer in our own backyards!
Eileen Davidson may label it “manipulative” (a word she has uttered so many times I swear someone at Merriam-Webster is paying her to make it a ‘thing’. Or maybe she just learned it and is over-eager to just drop it like it’s hot. It’s not.), but what Eileen fails to comprehend is what the viewers crave and expect from a show ostensibly about the lives of the uber-rich. This is not Unsolved Mysteries – we don’t care about ‘finding the truth’ or uncovering facts. We want glitter and we want it NOW!
I have a confession to make: I love when the Real Housewives go rogue and post their own blogs because I know we’re getting the unfiltered version of what they have to say about an episode. Lisa Vanderpump did just that last night after the airing of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion. She took to Facebook to share her thoughts on everything that went down.
She starts with an apology. Snicker. “Hello to you all, I am sorry I was remiss in submitting my blog last week, I was traveling and also fighting a cold. I apologize, oh no …did I just say that? Scratch that because I never do that…”
Now that you’ve had time to digest all that happened on last night’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion episode (my eye is still twitching from the insanity of it all), here’s Eileen Davidson with her two cents on the hot mess. She doesn’t hold back a thing when it comes to her feelings on Lisa Vanderpump.
First Eileen touches on Kim Richards telling her this is a reality show, not a soap opera. “What, Kim? I’m overdramatic???!!! Okay, I’m sure I am sometimes. But, as I recall it was Kim who exhibited extremely dramatic behavior at my house, during the car ride with Lisa R., and when she called me a beast at that oh-so-un-dramatic dinner in Amsterdam. And after that, I only saw Kim once this whole year, at Kyle’s party in the desert, where our interaction was brief and uneventful. I’m at a loss as to why she’s formed this opinion…but all right. Regardless, I do wish Kim well in her recovery.”
Shemust have been tranquilized, nervous because of the Russian accent, the hotness – something, because Brandi was uncannily well-behaved and actually allowed her guest to speak. I mean, as much as it’s possible for Brandi!
Tonight the ladies are joined by Kim Richards, who tries to settle her bad blood withLisa Rinna and then gets into with Eileen Davidson about LAST SEASON’s poker night. And although she wasn’t even AT poker night, Yolanda Foster feels the need to interject and give one of her lectures. And that’s not the only one she’s handing out. As Kim tries to make a point to Eileen, Yolanda butts in to fight the battle for her – dishing out words of wisdom and holier than thou lectures that nobody gives a rip about. Please let this be her last hurrah. It’ll make it easier to swallow.
