Bravo’s newest show Tour Group premiered this week and so far it’s good. A little bit of a drama mixed with a whole lot of travel porn! One of the show’s stars, former model Michelle Harvey, is opening up about her link to other Bravo reality stars. In an interview with AfterBuzz, she spills tea on how she was almost cast on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and shares that Brandi Glanville USED to be her friend.
Michelle reveals that she filmed a pilot for a reality show revolving around former models (but never got picked up) that also starred Brandi Glanville and Kristen Taekmanand a few others.
Erika Jayne has quickly fallen down the list of my favorite newcomers on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She started off strong but something changed over the past few episodes – starting with the lying during the concert after party and it has continued on from there. This week in her blog, the RHOBH cast newbie shares that she’s befuddled over Kathryn Edwards‘ loyalty to Lisa Vanderpump since they just met. And in that same vein I ask Erika, why does she have such a dislike for Lisa when she also only just met her, as well?
Yolanda‘s blog, which reads like her self-nomination for sainthood, begins, “As I watch the season unfold and observe myself going back six months in time, I feel so much gratitude for the improvement I have made and still hopeful for a full recovery.” Which she has tentatively scheduled on the day after her divorce from David “My Alimony“ Foster is settled.
Running to Lisa Vanderpump with gossip from Camp Erika Girardi-Jayne looked like a rookie Housewife move to most. But Kathryn Edwards claims she sees nothing wrong with repeating Erika’s gossip and that “there was no ill will” intended on her part. Mmm hmmmmmm. OK, we’ll bite! Let’s go down this rabbit hole together, shall we?
In her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills blog, Kathryn defends her actions. She also claims this dysfunctional dynamic within a group of women is all new to her; indeed, navigating her castmates’ “ulterior motives” is a full time job! She explains, “I’d like to remind everyone that I am just getting to know these ladies as a group, and I am clearly unaware of the history some of them may have and what may have transpired in the past. As I watch this now, seeing what you, the viewers, are seeing, I see tension between Yolanda[Hadid] and LisaVanderpump. I don’t know what it is, I don’t know what happened. Maybe it’s just the relationship Lisa has with Yolanda‘s former husband. Could that be it?”
Are you ready to go to school? Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Academy is open and Headmistress Eileen Davidson is itchin’ to educate us on each and every one of her castmate’s motivations and missteps! In her blog this week, Eileen literally breaks down the dirt among the women of RHOBHsection by section, offering us her take on the camps being formed within the group, and some insight into which one she’s on.
Or is this a court case, Girardi-style?? Ladies and Gentlemen, Bravo gives us The People vs. Eileen Davidson! “Listen, this is all so confusing for me. It might be easier to talk about if I try to dissect each relationship dynamic, as it stands now, one section at a time,” explains Eileen, who submits the following…
I feel exhausted. Why can’t the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills just have fun together and be friends? This show is fabulous when everyone on it is fabulous: fabulously dressed, fabulously wealthy, fabulously living, fabulously connected, and fabulously friends. When they resort to low-level manipulative pandering of ‘take down storylines’ – take downs of the same woman, season after season, I might add – it becomes unbearably trite.
I get it – no one in the 90210 zipcode and its surrounding areas can stand Lisa Vanderpump! She’s too busy having fun with ponies to sweat y’all’s smallstuff, though.
In case you’ve forgotten Yolanda Foster has Lyme Disease, and the only part of her brain that remains in functioning order is the manipulative faction. Ain’t that aces for her reality TV career! She’s got some inexplicable issue with LVP that’s gonna play out again and again until the 4 tenors sing off-key.
After that episode aired, Yolanda blogged, “A lack of education is the root of so many issues today. You will never hear someone who’s walked in my shoes speak the way Taylor spoke on tonight’s episode. I truly hope she never has to experience the journey she questions me for sharing.”
Taylor responds, “Absolutely I hope that nobody else has to experience what she’s experiencing. I feel horrible for her. But at the same time I was concerned Yolanda had a misdiagnosis because I have family members who have had neurological diseases. They were misdiagnosed for a very long time and ended up having multiple sclerosis so I was just concerned. It really was out of concern and I wish the best for her.”
