Not much happened during the Season 8 premiere episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but it was glorious to see the ladies from the 90210 back in their element, living lavishly and throwing shade.
Lisa Vanderpump made sure to remind us all that she is an OG cast member and the queen of the show. Her tag line alluded to this (yet again): “The queen of diamonds always has an ace up her sleeve.” She also had some shady comments up her sleeve, but she was very subtle with her delivery. She really is a pro at this.
Lisa continued to be the queen of subtle shade in her (extremely verbose) Bravo blog post. After reminding us all (for the millionth time) that she has been on this show from the beginning, she wrote, “What has withstood the test of time would be the intricate friendship between Kyle [Richards] and myself. It blossomed and flourished as we bonded over many hilarious situations, clung to each other, supportively chastised our differences, and at times floundered as third parties often intervened.” The first person who comes to mind is Lisa’s best-friend-turned-enemy Brandi Glanville. More recently, I’m thinking of that clip from the trailer with Lisa speeding away from Kyle and Dorit Kemsley to hang out with her husband because they didn’t want to hang out with her.
On a nicer note, Lisa added, “Both of our lives have matured as we have cultivated our passions, raised our children, and immersed ourselves in projects we could only have dreamt of.”
Lisa continued the niceties with a shout out for Erika Girardi followed by compliments for Lisa Rinna’s daughters and Dorit’s son: “One of the joys of riding this train has been to observe the growth of our friends, to see Erika fulfilling her ambitions, to witness the children mature with Jagger talking and Lisa’s beautiful girls developing their modeling careers. It’s all documented and a wonderful story to cherish.”
Then Lisa got to the new girl Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave: “So as we venture forward, all is well, and we are introduced to Miss Teddi, whom I believe to be a genuine, down-to-earth young woman who is refreshingly honest and that holds steadfast in her resolve as she encounters various situations. But, as often happens when a new cog is entered into the complex machinations of a group of women, things can rapidly change…” Well yes, that’s what happens whenever a new lady joins the show.
