The final part of the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion was all about owning the undefinable IT – what that “IT” is, we’re not sure. Lisa Vanderpump was owning no part in offending anyone, or the chicanery behind manipulating others into questioning Yolanda Foster‘s Lyme Disease. Other than Kyle Richards, the only person Lisa deemed worthy was Ken, who, despite pissing all the women off, made no appearance last night. Ken was too busy relaxing in the Villa Rosa gardens amid the splendor of mini horses and Pomeranians. Or, who knows, maybe he was doing gourmet Jello Shots with Mohamed and David! #LifeWithoutLyme
We begin with Lisa explaining why she didn’t open up about her past abuse when Eileen Davidson shared hers. Lisa didn’t feel comfortable sharing in front of Ken. Which seems to be a problem; since season 3 Ken has made a habit of attending events with Lisa, acting as a guard dog between her and the other women. It’s a bit silly, and, as Eileen tried to point out (in between Yolanda constantly interrupting), this wall Lisa has up – physically and metaphorically – prevents her from bonding and forming true friendships with the women.
I don’t know what I would do if it wasn’t for the Real Housewives franchise. I have watched every episode of every season in every city multiple times, no matter how I feel about the content. With that said, this season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has definitely been its worst – by far. As much as I love these ladies, there are so many reasons why Season 6 of RHOBH has been its worst. No matter how much I stan for this show, I cannot deny this. And I’m sure that I’m not the only one wishing for a redo on this one.
Typically, RHOBH is chock full of story lines, but this season just dragged on and on. Don’t get me wrong, I still watched every episode a million times, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I usually do. And this is something that made me sad. Hopefully someone at Bravo who has some power is reading this right now and will do what they can to avoid these same mistakes next season.
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.
RHOBH is not Yolanda’s first foray into reality TV. Back when she was engaged to David Foster and planning their wedding of the century, she was a cast member of Hollywood Vrouwen, aka Hollywood Women, before she got her bigger break on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Fun fact: we can thank Hollywood Women for this little nugget.
In the spirit of Throwback Thursday, we give you Pre-Housewives Yolanda. For no reason other than “just cuz.”
Check out the videos below. Just an FYI: she switches back and forth between Dutch and English.
Good news – maybe?! – the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has already been renewed. Bad news – the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast won’t change much for season seven. Why can’t we have nice things?
Earlier today, Bravo announced the six new and fourteen returning shows that will fill its summer and fall schedules. Obviously, RHOBH is on the list for fall. It will be a while before the cast is set in stone and revealed; however, when a fan tweeted @ Andy Cohen that Lisa Rinna, Yolanda Foster, Erika Girardi, and Eileen Davidson must go, he replied, “No way!”
Are y’all still with me? If you haven’t taken a sledgehammer to your phone/tablet/computer because of Andy‘s bad judgementTweet, look below to find out what other questionable choices goodies Bravo has in store for viewers.
Here’s what the women of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills don’t get: We do want a fabulous story – even if it means running over the “dead bodies” of dull Housewives filled with overly-inflated hubrises. IfLisa Vanderpump wants to be the metaphorical “Dexter” of Bravo, then by all means, do. Especially if it means I, as a viewer, get more exposure to diamonds and mini horses, than I do IV fluids and arguments about nothing. This show is supposed to be about glamour, which is why I don’t mind Kyle Richards wearing a ballgown to her BBQ and having it catered by a team of gourmet George Foreman Grill experts. We can get paper plates, hot dogs, and beer in our own backyards!
Eileen Davidson may label it “manipulative” (a word she has uttered so many times I swear someone at Merriam-Webster is paying her to make it a ‘thing’. Or maybe she just learned it and is over-eager to just drop it like it’s hot. It’s not.), but what Eileen fails to comprehend is what the viewers crave and expect from a show ostensibly about the lives of the uber-rich. This is not Unsolved Mysteries – we don’t care about ‘finding the truth’ or uncovering facts. We want glitter and we want it NOW!
Tonight the ladies are joined by Kim Richards, who tries to settle her bad blood withLisa Rinna and then gets into with Eileen Davidson about LAST SEASON’s poker night. And although she wasn’t even AT poker night, Yolanda Foster feels the need to interject and give one of her lectures. And that’s not the only one she’s handing out. As Kim tries to make a point to Eileen, Yolanda butts in to fight the battle for her – dishing out words of wisdom and holier than thou lectures that nobody gives a rip about. Please let this be her last hurrah. It’ll make it easier to swallow.
