Normally I’m sad when a Real Housewives season comes to an end. That is not how I feel about Season 8 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills wrapping up. It was easily the most boring, least enjoyable, and overall worst season in the show’s history.
Essentially nothing happened, but they still managed to drag out the reunion into three different episodes. Now, we are so close to putting that dismal season behind us.
The newest Beverly Hills Housewife Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave reflected on the final Season 8 reunion episode in her last Bravo blog post of the season. She wrote, “The long and short of it is that this season was a fun, educational, emotional time. 100%.” I don’t know about “fun.” Describing this season of shameless self-promotion, arguments about glassware, and debates over tardiness as “fun” just doesn’t seem accurate to me.
Teddi admitted, “I get why the reunion is necessary — it really opens up the conversation to a place where it needs to go. And with Erika [Jayne], I think we finally find some sort of understanding as to how each of us views the other.”
Teddi continued, “Regarding Erika recalling Dorit [Kemsley] ‘hammering’ me all season, the reason my reactions weren’t the same than with Erika is because the tone was very different. The only other thing that left me scratching at my extensions is that Erika freely admits that she’s an —hole yet tries to put my reactions to her as something wrong with me. But we end on a good note, and I’m looking forward to what the future may hold there.” That sounds like she’s expecting to return for another season along with Erika…. It’s too soon for me to decide if I am on board with that. All I know is some major changes need to happen to make Season 9 remotely watchable.
Teddi admitted, “There’s not much else I can say (as you see, my blogs got me in a bit of hot water) other than I don’t regret anything that I wrote here this season. I tried my best to use these blogs as a cathartic way to get across how I was feeling in the moment as well as when watching the episodes back, and I like to think I did that with a lot of humor, no matter how shady they may have been.” We want the shade though. This season did not have nearly enough shade. If Teddi returns for a second season, we need the shade from her blogs in the new episodes.
TELL US- DO YOU WANT TEDDI TO RETURN FOR ANOTHER SEASON OF REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS? IS IT POSSIBLE FOR TEDDI & ERIKA TO BE FRIENDS?
