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.”
Speaking out for the first time? Dr. Oz has instagram, I presume? And access to Bravo? Dr. Oz promises this is a “side of Yolanda” we’ve never seen before. (It’s not.) Is multiple personalities a co-infection of Lyme?
“It’s been a long four years,” admits Yolanda through tears. “I keep myself motivated for my children, who I need to cure before they go on with their adult lives. It’s just gotta get done, and if it’s not me, then who’s gonna do it?” Doctors?
Lisa is a good sport when it comes to charity and laughs off the SoulCycle event, “Geez it was a lot of work, but I always see the funny side and it was for a good cause, so mission accomplished. Now ideally that is a world I would like to live in, a world where every moment is enhanced with playful banter, where people aren’t searching for negativity in a time that is already laden with difficulties.”
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.
Above: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster shared this “vault,” adding, “The vault was not a threat but rather a reminder that I know a lot of things about all the cast members that I would never dare to expose! The vault in my culture means: a safe and vulnerable place in our hearts where we share a certain integrity and keep our friends well being as our first priority. I don’t feel the need to share private matters of other women or their families because I care for them as human beings. Exposing private matters to the public would just make me feel like a distrustful human being. We don’t need to put others down in order to build ourselves up. I am not interested in competing with anyone. I hope we’re all successful…. in whatever our personal journey might be…. #RHOBH #TheVault #EnoughIsEnough #DrawingALineInTheSand.”
Lisa points out that the ladies were talking about her when she wasn’t present, something she’s been reprimanded for doing in the past. “Watching this was eye opening for me, to say the least. First of all, I wasn’t there, and a good deal of the conversation was about ME. I find this fascinating since I have been scolded all season long for talking about others, gossiping, etc. So I guess it’s safe to say that it’s human nature and we can’t really help ourselves when we all talk and gossip, now can we?”
