Apparently the phrase “British humor” is the go-to excuse to defend questionable behavior on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. They get to say whatever is on their mind, but they got off consequence free under the guise that the insult was uttered in good fun. I have no idea how Dorit Kemsley thinks that she can get away with British humor since she’s a Connecticut native, but it’s actually working out pretty well for her.
She managed to make this entire season about her and it was only her first year. Clearly, this is a woman who knows how to navigate a social circle. Props to her. Sure, she brought down my girl Erika Girardiin the process, but I have to admit that she really knows what she’s doing. Love her or hate her, she was meant to be a Housewife. That’s for damn sure. She knows how to stir the pot and she looks good doing it.
Even though Kim Richards isn’t even a cast member on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the whole entire season has been about her- again. What is it with so many of these women using Kim for a story line? It’s really just bad casting if these people have nothing to discuss other than whether or not Kim is sober.
And Kim is so done with it. She appears on the reunion to put Lisa Rinna in her place. That’s not all though: Kim has even more to say about Rinna exploiting her to get more camera time- again.
Kyle Richards is living the good life. She is an original cast member on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, where she’s pretty much always portrayed in a positive light; she is happily married; and she is super wealthy – unlike some of the Housewives who front about their finances in an effort to stay on Bravo.
So, I don’t blame Kyle for spending that money and going on fun trips with her family. They recently ventured to Europe to spend time in London, Paris, and Milan. As relatable as Kyle seems on the show, her vacation photos remind me she is super rich and not “just like us” even though I feel that way when I watch her commentary on TV.
Last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion was wash, rinse, and repeat pantygate. And even though the stains have come out, Erika Girardi and Dorit Kemsley still can’t toss them in the drawer and move on. Can’t one of Dorit’s three full-time housekeepers clean up this mess? What about “Soapy and Sudsy“?
Andy Cohen wastes no time defrosting the world of Erika Jayne, wondering why she has to be so cold? But Andy and I are on different time frames, so my first order of business is discussing wardrobe. Which means Kyle Richards.
UGH. How does Kyle By KantDressTooThousand expect us to take her boutique seriously when she is wearing a cold-shoulder leotard that she put a strapless bra over. With a skirt that looks like shape wear. SERIOUSLY!? I just cannot. even. fathom. why?! Kyle is aware that when organizing a ‘sitting down for TV outfit’ one should, you know, TEST how it looks while seated? Apparently, these are things only non-showbiz people know – the former F-list child stars did not get such stellar education.
Tonight continues the battle of the vajaynejayne as Erika Griradi and Dorit Kemsley (plus her plus one PK) discuss the minutia of pantygate. At this point I think they should all just call it even by joining a nudist colony. ENOUGH! Seriously – it is Eileen Davidson levels of obsession – and beyond.
I hate to be a hater, but it’s usually pretty tough for me to take any Real Housewives side projects seriously. As much as I love the housewives (which is a lot), it’s difficult for me to think them as actresses, lifestyle experts, entrepreneurs, or whatever else they claim to be. With that said, six current and former Housewives are set to star in a sitcom together.
Yes, you read that right- not a reality show, but a sitcom. Still, the show is a reality TV satire, so they aren’t straying too far from the norm.
