As boring as it is to see the women on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills getting along, I am very intrigued by the possible friendship forming between Dorit Kemsley and Erika Girardi. Those two would make a very interesting
alliance friendship. Other than those two moving on from last year’s panty-gate scandal, I’m not bored by everyone else hanging out and getting along.
Let’s hope that things rev up ASAP. After two episodes of shading each other, Dorit even made up with Lisa Rinna. Those two going at it was the one thing I thought I could count on this season. Apparently not.
Dorit reflected on the second episode in her Bravo blog post. She wrote, “Of course, I knew Lisa R would be joining us, and although I mentally prepared for her arrival, seeing her face to face for the first time after our explosion in Hong Kong was a bit unsettling.” They saw each other at Lisa Vanderpump’s Diamonds and Rosé themed party during the finale and the reunion. They had face to face confrontations at both events.
Dorit said, “Playing roulette with Erika and Teddi was oodles of fun. It’s 5 o’clock anytime you say it is, in Sin City, so it only felt right to sip as we stacked chips. I feel as though my relationship with Erika has changed for the better, and this trip has a lot to do with that.” I’m actually for this. An Erika and Dorit friendship would make for interesting TV and I would just love to see Lisa Vanderpump’s reaction if this ever happened.
Then Dorit addressed the major moment of the episode: her confrontation with Lisa Rinna. Dorit wrote, “Before taking the High Roller for a spin, I knew I had to clear things up with Lisa R, because I’m not one to be fake—I’ll always tell you how I feel.” And she will tell you the truth in any accent she wants.
Dorit continued, “When I pulled her aside, I had no intention of rehashing old arguments. I simply wanted to be transparent about why I felt hurt, and I was caught off guard when she responded so well and proposed that we start our friendship anew! Maybe she did experience a rebirth, because that’s the nicest Lisa R I’ve ever experienced, and I felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders.” A Lisa Rinna rebirth? I’ll believe it when I see it. Love her or hate her, Rinna’s messiness has blessed us with some great story lines.
Dorit recalled, “We were all feeling playful over drinks on our last night when Erika revealed a shocking piece of information about her father. She’s very brave to open up about such a sensitive subject, and I really felt for her.” I guess Dorit wasn’t one of the people who thought Erika’s response to an innocent question from Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave was incredibly cold. Maybe Dorit only has an issue with Erika being cold when it’s toward her.
Dorit concluded, “I’m so grateful to Kyle [Richards] for arranging the trip, and I’m happy Teddi took a chance on our crazy group!” Of course Teddi “took the chance.” She signed on to be a cast member. She had no choice.
