Eileen starts off sharing her true compassion for Yolanda Foster. “I’m deeply sorry for the pain that Yolanda endured during the first part of the reunion. Clearly she did not understand that her illness had become its own storyline to such an extent. I was disgusted and saddened and felt nothing but empathy for her as I watched her try to figure out what to believe. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: That chick is one strong woman. I have nothing but mad respect for her.”
I never thought I’d say this but the best thing about last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion was Erika Jayne-Girardi patting the puss. Aside from that it was all journeys all the time from the Yolanda Foster Files, which has more confusing story lines than The X Files (which actually isn’t too much of a stretch in the weirdness department!).
Lisa Vanderpump is wearing battle armor designed by Tom Ford. Initially it sounds like he made it for her, specifically, but then Andy notices Erika was wearing “the shirt version” in her interview talking head. The color looks better on LVP. Not wanting us to forget that she’s chronically ill – for even a moment!!! – Yolanda’s dress resembles bandages and medical gauze. I’m surprised she wasn’t wheeled out on a stretcher with Daisy insisting Glam Squads cause co-infections. Maybe her seat on the couch reclines?
Here’s your random tea tidbit for the day! Michael Jackson died in Yolanda Foster’s bed! Sounds insane, right? But it’s apparently true! Yolanda Foster was a guest on WWHL last week and after the airing was over, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star dropped this amazing bombshell on Andy Cohen.
This morning on Radio Andy, Cohen revealed that Yolanda and Mohamed Hadid used to own the house Michael rented at the time of his death and the bed he passed away in was actually Yolanda’s bed – her bedding and all, she told him. Andy wasn’t 100% sure if he was supposed to share that or not… but there it is!
“We did it! We made it through all 20 episodes and, as expected, we are all barely hanging on by a thread emotionally. After seeing some of the recent blogs, it appears that some of us may not be doing as well as others and are lashing out and hitting below the belt. For a woman who works 18 hours a day, has 250 employees, three shows on Bravo, three restaurants, eight dogs, five swans, two tiny horses, two grown kids and a 70-year-old husband to take the time she took to write that mean blog last week…WOW! Eileen is a such a good, solid human being and friend, and she absolutely does not deserve any of this.”
“Never in a million years could I have imagined what would take place this year on RHOBH. It’s been emotional, turbulent, and downright ugly at times. Yolanda has had it the toughest. She’s continued to battle Lyme and been isolated from our group at times because of it. She’s suffered from the controversy and confusion surrounding the Munchausen comment. On top of all that, she’s had to endure the ending of her marriage to David. Now she’s in her new home as a single woman, and I hope this next step is full of great new beginnings. I loved when she and Erika talked about her best days being in front of her. It shows the kind of woman she is: strong, loving and positive.”
“I just signed a deal,” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star announced on the WWHL After Show. “So, I am, right now, trying to find a co-writer to do it with me. And I’ll be focused on that for the next six months. I’m excited because I have so much to share. It’s been such a long journey.” #UNDERSTATEMENT
Really quick before y’all start reading, what (or who) is Munchausens?? Is she a fancy, rich German lady who will be joining the cast on next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? No, no, it’s Lisa Vanderpump’s next club endeavor after the popularity of SUR and Pump, right? Wait, is that the brand of Yolanda Foster’s coveted refrigerator? Sorry, my bad, is it just the name of Lisa Rinna’s new line of incontinence products?
It’s been an entire season, and I’d rather debate the definition of Munchausen (and to be clear, I know what it is…I saw Sixth Sense!) than pick a side between the Lisas. Who’s with me? That question is easy to answer…Kyle Richards. She’s dissecting the RHOBH finale, and she’s trying to be as impartial as possible. Best of luck to her. Discussing the volatile episode, Kyle opines, “Well, here we are. Back in Los Angeles after our whirlwind Dubai trip. Much of what I wrote last week really pertains to this week as well. I know it is confusing to some since this happened off camera. That always makes it a difficult story to tell. What happened that day at LVP’s when Rinna said the word Munchausen was very clear to me, which is why I confronted LVP right after. We had the discussion in her bathroom. That is when I said, ‘I know what you’re up to, and I will take you down in flames with me’ half laughing, because I just didn’t want to make a big deal out of it.”
