The past season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills revolved around Dorit Kemsley. As the public attempts to push #puppygate to the darkest corner of their minds, it’s now being rehashed on the reunion. Dorit played the victim so well, you would have thought she was doing budget Shakespeare in the Park. The mum of two hasn’t a care in the world, with her
rented Hollywood mansion and leased rosè hued Bentley.
We have rarely seen a flaw in Dorit’s armor of Alexander McQueen couture and diamond baubles. But all isn’t perfect in Dorit’s
fantasy world. A dark cloud has been hovering over Dorit and PK Kemsley for quite some time. Thanks to public records and Camille Grammer, fans of RHOBH finally see through the facade of Chanel and suspicious accents. While the cast took luxurious trips and displayed their wealth, something else was happening. Behind the scenes, most of the Housewives were dealing with legal issues. Financial legal issues. As layers have been uncovered and lawsuits exposed, we are finding out that while Dorit may consider herself the Queen of McQueen, she also might be the Queen of Delusion.
Even though Southern Charm’s Thomas Ravenel is no longer on the show, his nasty custody case with ex Kathryn Dennis is playing out in the public eye.
Thomas thinks he has a smoking gun thanks to cell phone records. He wants to prove that he is merely a victim of a media hungry young woman with a drug problem.
Remember back to a simpler time on Real Housewives of Atlanta? When women could show off their thongs and tout the miracle of having a donkey booty? Phaedra Parks was a Housewife like no other. She was an expert on southern etiquette, all the while also being an attorney and working in the mortuary business.
For eight seasons viewers watched Phaedra and her drama-filled marriage to ex-con, and current convict, Apollo Nida. Their union gradually crumbled after the duo welcomed two sons into their family. Apollo landed in trouble again in 2014 and was sentenced to eight years for identity theft and fraud. He was released in June of 2019 but sent back to prison a few days later for violating the half-way house rules. Phaedra eventually divorced Apollo. Shocker!
The ladies of the Real Housewives of Orange County should regularly pray to whatever reality TV deity has blessed us all with Gina Kirschenheiter. Her life is a hot mess. That is sad for her and her kids, but it makes great TV. Her dumpster fire of an existence also seems to have revitalized the franchise. Or at least I hope it will.
In April of 2018, Gina filed for divorce from her husband, Matt Kirschenheiter, citing “irreconcilable differences.” She then got herself in some legal trouble for drunk driving and talking on the phone while driving. Girl, do you not have Uber? And Bluetooth? Those are both, like, the easiest crimes to avoid. Earlier this summer, Matt was arrested for suspicion of domestic violence against Gina. Gina then filed a restraining order against Matt, which resulted in him being ordered to stay 100 yards away from Gina and the children. He has, however, gained supervised visits with the kids since then.
The Real Housewives of Dallas is one of the best kept secrets on Bravo. Although the show and its stars don’t always get the attention or recognition of some of the other Housewife shows, the cast usually delivers. The ladies have real money, throw real drama and they aren’t afraid to embarrass themselves on camera. Over and over. Isn’t that right, Brandi Redmond?
Last season, we watched the painful disintegration of the friendship of LeeAnne Locken and D’Andra Simmons. Stephanie Hollman touchingly shared her history of mental health issues and how she has worked to overcome them. Kameron Wescott continued to welcome us into her fabulous pink and sparkly world. Now, a new lady has been added to the cast of RHOD.
Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer can’t seem to catch a break. Her relationship with Scott Kluth ended because he wouldn’t put a ring on it. Tinsley’s mom, Dale Mercer, continued to nag her to get pregnant ASAP, even though Tinsley admitted she might only want little Chihuahuas in her life.
Speaking of Chihuahuas, Tinsley also lost her dog Bambi. Crying onto the shoulders of Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan probably wasn’t the best idea, but it was better than nothing. That love didn’t last long because Sonja and Dorinda Medley then started questioning Tinsley on where she got the money to buy her fancy dresses. And now, Carole Radziwill, has decided to pile on Tinsley as well.
Ah, Denise Richards. The newest cast member of Real Housewives of Beverly
Pills Hills. One of the last to remain on good terms with recently ousted Lisa Vanderpump. Denise was a super chill, bonafide “beach girl”, living by the sea in her Malibu home. She got along with veterans Kyle Richards and Lisa Rinna. She was not intimidated by Erika Jayne, nor was she phased by Dorit Kemsley and her extensive collection of wigs and accents.
Denise was fun and games, sharing anecdotes about her newlywed life with Aaron Phypers. He now walks the streets of Beverly Hills in a cocoon of shame, after the intimate details she confessed on a group trip. Denise is also responsible for bringing Brandi Glanville back into our lives. Thanks so much for that! Strike one! Nearing the end of the season, viewers were treated to a glimpse of Denise’s argumentative side. She confronted Kim Richards at a party whilst defending Rinna about the infamous blue bunny. Strike two? Now we are seeing the ire rise up in Denise again. She has thoughts on what is and is not appropriate to discuss in someone’s personal life. Will this be strike 3 for Denise, or does she have a point?
On this week’s episode of Married At First Sight, the honeymoon has ended and the couples are returning to their new reality. This is my favorite part of Married At First Sight. Things always get real when couples start living together. This season, the experts have provided everyone with a shared space. But before they move, they will first spend the night in the home of their significant other.
Greg Okotie takes the grand tour of Deonna McNeill’s home. Now I see why she wanted to live in his larger house. You can see the anxiety on Greg’s face when he encounters her cluttered space and shedding dog. Elizabeth Bice visits her husband Jamie Thompson’s house. Either he is a neat freak or he had someone organize his entire home. It looks like a model home that has been staged. Hmm… something tells me Elizabeth is going to be a challenge for his OCD.
Iris Caldwell spends the night at Keith Manley’s home. The next morning she begins to snoop through all of his things. Girl, I know this is your husband, but you have only known him for 5 days. I think it’s extremely rude to go through someone else’s belongings, especially in a new relationship. Now don’t get me wrong, I would look and take mental notes. But I wouldn’t go through his bags and drawers. It reeks of desperation and seems as if you are looking for an issue. Well as expected, Iris is livid when she finds a box of empty condoms hidden away. Did she forget SHE was the virgin, not him? She should be happy he was at least using protection before he got married.
When confronted, Keith claims he brought some condoms to the honeymoon. Iris harps on the fact that the box is empty and even checks his backpack and only finds three. Keith nicely shuts down the conversation as nonproductive. Iris decides to let it go, but I have a feeling this topic will rear its ugly head again.
