Other than fishnets on ladies of a certain age, the drama centered aroundYolanda Foster‘s Lyme Disease and Faye Resnick‘s polarizing existence. Two subjects I do not care about one bit!
Kyle and Lisa Vanderpump are throwing a burlesque party, to celebrate their joint anniversaries. Kyle and Lisa are cute together. Even when they’re bickering. Lisa withholds sugar from Kyle’s tea as punishment for Kyle springing Faye on her. Kyle teases back that Lisa is holding a grudge. Later Lisa attempts to snoop through Kyle’s phone to see if she and Faye have been talking about her, but it’s all in fun. Quite simply, Lisa doesn’t want the “orangutan” that is Faye – and Faye is very orange in hue no thanks to the most curious spray tan color ever seen. Does she ask the airbrusher to tint her “highlighter orange”? Or possibly “Orange Julius”? Whatever’s happening – that ain’t sunkisst!
The venue for the party is a speakeasy style hotel, and it’s fabulous. Even the looming presence Faye can’t tint Lisa’s excitement.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Lisa Rinna lightheartedly meanders through her blog in this week’s reflection on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Giddy up! She gushed, “What a fun episode this was to watch! So many really laughable moments went on this season, and it’s great to see them among some of the drama and speculation we’ve been seeing already.”
On her mani-pedi day with her two daughters, Lisa shares, “Of course, as you know, I love the time I spend with my girls. Oh, the conversations we have! The sassiness coming from Delilah Belle as she tells me her curfew is now 11:10. What is that? Who did that? Why? Was that a Harry Hamlin thing? Was it Delilah Belle? Was it me? I want to know who came up with this 11:10 curfew for her, because it’s just weird. Clearly, the art of negotiation is alive and well in our household.”
Come on, Eileen! Tell us how you really feel. In this week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, brokedownTaylor Armstrong reappeared on the scene. And it wasn’t only big hats and big lips she brought with her! Taylor also had some big opinions about sick-selfie-healthy-selfie Yolanda Foster. Eileen Davidson didn’t take too kindly to Taylor’s comments about her ailing friend, though. Eileen opens up in her blog about her feelings on the shenanigans at Ken Todd’s 70th birthday party, Lisa Vanderpump’s little horse debacle, newcomer Erika Girardi, and much more.
Bemoaning her fate as the lone female in her home, Eileen reflects, “I was laughing (crying on the inside) seeing Vince, Jesse, and me in the A.M. trying to get ready for the day. In a house full of boys, I am the lone female voice that calls (screams), ‘Do your dishes! Empty the trash!’ Maybe our house is haunted. I’m the ghost; nobody seems to see or hear me!”
She’s back! Camille Grammer’s return to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (even in her reduced role) brings with it Camille’s trademarked tsk-tsking of other housewives’ poor behavior, complete with coquettish shoulder shrugs. Or at least, let’s hope it does! Even though she appeared for mere moments on this week’s episode, Camille has some choice words for those who are questioning Yolanda Foster’sillness (cough, cough: Taylor Armstrong!).
Camille’s brush with her own serious health issues has given her some perspective on the situation. She reflects, “In September of 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Endometrial Cancer. Luckily my cancer was caught at this stage. My treatment required surgery, chemo, and radiation therapy under the expert care of Pedro Ramirez at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.”
Taylor says that she attempted to help Yolanda by connecting her with a top neurologist, but Yo refused her offer. “When Yolanda was first diagnosed with Lyme disease, I shared my thoughts with her about the potential for a misdiagnosis. I have had two family members with Multiple Sclerosis, and it took quite a long time for them to be properly diagnosed. The symptoms she described were similar to what my family members experienced. My husband’s friend is a world-renowned diagnostic neurologist, and I offered to connect Yolanda with him for an appointment or even a phone call to describe her condition and get his thoughts. She declined to do so, but I was concerned for her and wanted to offer the option of another opinion.”
Yolanda labeled the episode as “interesting” and shared that her experience with chronic Lyme disease has taught her that “a lack of education is the root of so many issues” in the world today. Yolanda went on to say that the “ignorance” displayed on the show last night just makes her want to “fight harder and speak louder.” Um, thanks a lot, Taylor Armstrong.
