Dana Wilkey is back, along with her $25,000 sunglasses. This blast from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills past was a Friend of the Housewives on Season 2. She popped up in July of 2020 and alleged that Vanderpump Rules star Randall Emmett, Lala Kent’s fiancé, owed her money. Randall owes someone money? I am shocked!
During the most recent episode of RHOBH, the cast tried to process Erika Jayne’s sudden divorce from Tom Girardi. I never expected Erika to reveal so many details about their relationship. It is still unclear how much Erika knew about her husband’s alleged misdeeds.
A documentary about the couple’s divorce and the embezzlement charges against Tom, titled The Housewife and the Hustler, recently dropped on Hulu. For some reason, Dana was part of it as an expert. In August of 2014, Dana faced federal fraud charges of her own, so maybe she is qualified to discuss Erika’s situation. But having Dana as a so-called expert is sketchy at best.
Lisa Vanderpump exited the franchise after Season 9, largely due to the “puppy-gate” scandal. But lately, Lisa can’t quit the RHOBH drama. Lisa and her husband, Ken Todd, went out to a restaurant and saw Kyle Richards dining with a producer on Lisa’s talk show, Overserved with Lisa Vanderpump. Lisa sent her bill to the table as a prank.

Dana told Page Six that her time on RHOBH was far from a fairy tale. She shared, “The person who was the coldest was Lisa Vanderpump in terms of trying to interact with her because, see, a lot of people don’t get this, but insider scoop: If you want to block someone out of the show and make it hard for them as talent, all you have to do is not talk to them or include them in the drama.”
Dana continued to spill some luke-warm insider tea. “So, the women who are going to respond to this question, they’re always going to answer it like, ‘Well, who was really nice to me in the beginning was …’ because that means they were willing to include them in the drama so they could be part of the show,” she explained.

Dana said that Lisa would actively make sure that some people received less airtime by limiting their involvement in the action. “I know that’s not going to be popular, but that’s the truth. But maybe that was survival of the fittest,” Dana remarked. “I mean, you know, it is like Survivor being on that show.”
TELL US- DO YOU BELIEVE DANA THAT LISA BLOCKED PEOPLE FROM GETTING CAMERA TIME? WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE DANA RETURN TO RHOBH?
