Eileen Davidson is not about to get caught in the middle of Munchausen Soup. But in this week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she walked right into a steaming hot broth of it being stirred right up – by friend and castmate, Lisa Rinna. In her blog, Eileen comments on the more lighthearted moments of the episode, but does warn that the SH*T is about to hit the fan when it comes to the endless drama of Yolanda Foster’s health, and the myriad of questions surrounding it. 

Ken [Todd] seems to be having the best birthday week ever, right?” jokes Eileen. “He finally got his miniature horse, and his reaction was pretty priceless. But wait, there are two of them! And like he said, twice the poop. Hmmmmm. Maybe not the best birthday after all?”


The tense scene between Eileen and her hubby Vince was apparently par for the course! She explains, “Fifteen years of being together, and my husband still makes me want to laugh and murder him at the same time. His new lifestyle choice of ‘nothing controversial before 9 a.m.’ is a perfect example.  Most days before 9 a.m. I’ve already worked out, memorized my lines, made breakfast, packed lunch, taken Jesse to school, and gotten on the road to work. Like just about every other mother, I’ve mastered the art of multi-tasking. How about I start living by the motto ‘nothing stressful before 9 a.m.’? Or I’ll take one step further: ‘nothing stressful before 9 p.m.’?” Ha! Love this woman. #ICanRelate

Watching Kyle Richards take her daughters to get their ears pierced was eye opening for Eileen, whose experience with raising boys differs somewhat. She remarks, “Watching the ear piercing debacle…wow! For a moment I thought I was on set. I haven’t seen that much drama EVER, and drama is what I do for a living! One thing I think Lisa R., Kyle, and I have in common is we want to give our kids everything. But giving them everything also means rules, curfews, and reality checks. We all want to instill good values in our kids, but you can’t ignore those undeveloped frontal lobes. Good luck, ladies! We all need it.”

Even more painful to watch were the scenes between now-divorcing David and Yolanda Foster. Eileen admits, “In light of what’s recently come about Yolanda and David’s divorce, it was hard to watch them in this episode. They seemed very in love and supportive of one another at that time. It’s sad to see how much of a toll this illness has taken on her quality of life. And also their relationship.”

Eileen has only kind words for newcomer Erika Girardi so far. “You have to admire any woman who’d let herself be filmed trying to get into a compression cat-suit. Trust me, you won’t see me squeezing into one of those things and singing for the Pope — if nothing else, but for the sake of my Catholic mother,” laughs Eileen. “Besides being an absolute riot and having the best skin ever, Erika has coined the most interesting new word: ‘snatchy.’ It does mean what I think it means, right?” 

Now, on to the real dirt! Eileen explains her feelings on walking into the sketchy (dare we say, snatchy?) conversation Lisa R was stirring up at Lisa Vanderpump’s home. Eileen blogs, “Clearly, I’m out of the loop when I walk into the conversation at Lisa V.’s. I could tell something was going on because the air was thick with it. Looking at that now, I see I was being naive.”

“In terms of the Munchausen silliness, from what I had seen, Lisa R. had engaged in a conversation that she felt was ugly. My advice to Lisa R. was, and still is, if she feels bad about being involved in it, just own it. Humans make mistakes. Talk to Yo about what happened and apologize. Hopefully, she’ll understand, accept the apology, and then everyone can move on. I’m starting to think that in this case, things aren’t quite that simple.”

Eileen finally warns viewers about the storm that’s a’brewin in Beverly Hills! She divulges, “Unfortunately, a can of very ugly worms has been opened. And all those worms are crawling out now.” Uh-oh.
