You might be wondering why the media won’t give up on Lisa Vanderpump and anything to do with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The simple fact is, the loss of Lisa is a huge blow to the franchise. Whether you love Lisa or consider her the mind-manipulating force behind orchestrated canine scandals, you are kidding yourself if you think it’s over.
When Lisa left the show, she also left her friendships in the dust. She said buh-bye to her close relationship with Kyle Richards after Bangs visited Lisa’s house to accuse her of lying. Lisa was never particularly close to Erika Jayne, because no one gets close to a riddle wrapped in migraines and designer sneakers. And let’s be honest, who really wants to be friends with Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave? So what does that mean for the rest of the gang? Well, Lisa says she is interested in maintaining a friendship with at least one of them. I’m sure it will be totally fine with the other ladies…
I hate to say you told me so, but you told me so. Yep, it sounds like Southern Charm is in ICU and the prognosis isn’t looking too great. It might be time to call friends and family members and get out your favorite black outfit. By all accounts, the show is in trouble. I’ll say it, the current cast is circling the drain because Thomas Ravenel departed. We don’t have a lot of people bringing interest to the table these days. No one seemed fascinated by Austen Kroll’s journey in trying to be a boy toy and Shep Rose has less personality and dignity than Naomie Olindo’s cat.
If the truth hurts, this will too. The ladies of the cast are leaving fans high and dry. Cameran Eubanks was the voice of reason when the show began, now she is the voice of judgment and often glosses over her friends’ shitty behavior. Chelsea Meissner is lovely but dang, she lacks a life. Since her “love interest” is some dude on a boat at sea, there are no relationship storylines for her. Kathryn Dennis is drama personified but not legally able to speak about certain things. Quite frankly her moods were so strange last season, fans constantly wondered if she was either on something or just checked out. Now we are hearing production has delayed filming through January, and you know what that usually means. Are we watching one of Bravo’s old favorites taking it’s last few breaths?
It just goes to show the old cliché is true. There might be someone out there for everyone! Exhibit A: Ashley Jacobs. The former
victim girlfriend of Southern Charm alum, Thomas Ravenel, has certainly been unlucky in love. During her reality television stint we saw Ashley plucked from the polo fields of Santa Barbara and plopped in the swamp by Thomas’ guest house. Ashley made quite an impression on the cast and viewers alike, as in nobody wanted to be around her in any capacity. Ashley’s fondness for torturing Kathryn Dennis after her daily ritual of gaslighting by Thomas became exhausting.
Thomas and Ashley’s relationship was anything but conventional. It was toxic at best and Ashley seemed to embrace her role as the Villian of Charleston proper. She managed to alienate most everyone, eventually Thomas had enough of her antics as well. After a brief return to the show last season, Ashley figured out
everyone hates her she needed to head back to sunny California to start over. Now Ashley is spinning the wheel of love once again, and this time she landed on someone without an AARP card.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Kandi Burruss is seeing red and her husband Todd Tucker might soon show up on a milk carton. Kandi and Todd recently celebrated the birth of their newborn daughter, Blaze. As many parents know, the first moments at home with a brand new infant is one of the most
terrifying important times in the bonding process. As moms and dads navigate feeding times and diaper changes, they can also revel in the bliss of combined sleep deprivation. It truly is a joyous journey.
Sometimes though, both parents aren’t willing participants in the
lack of freedom first few days of their child’s life. Work schedules, previous commitments, or not living together can interfere with the overall parental workload. Todd is special, however. In his case, the call of the club scene is apparently too strong to avoid. Now Kandi wants to have a word with her husband about his extracurricular activities. Good luck, Todd.
To be honest, I was hoping never to use the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and the word “dog” in the same article again. But the Universe doesn’t care about our plans, so here we are. The holidays are a time for family togetherness and sometimes traveling is involved. Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave recently packed her bump, her husband, and her brood for a quick family excursion. More often than not, our fur babies are watched by a trusted individual or reputable boarding facility.
Most of the time we return from a trip and go back to daily life, but sometimes bad things happen in the interim. Despite preventative measures, a very unfortunate accident occurred and Teddi’s homecoming was anything but normal. Instead of settling back into their regular routine and preparing for Santa, Teddi and her family are dealing with something else entirely.
The Real Housewives of Orange County episode featuring Tamra Judge’s adult son in a therapy session has spawned a lot of controversy. Ryan Vieth doesn’t have the best reputation in reality television, but to be fair, neither does his mother. Fans of the show have watched Ryan go from the tortured stepkid of Simon Barney who didn’t want a desk job to a somewhat troubled father of one, who still doesn’t want a desk job.
There has never been a great deal of sympathy for Ryan, but the public tends to root for someone who fights to change their situation instead of complaining how they got there. Ryan has also displayed some less than acceptable behavior towards the mother of his child. In addition to his relationship woes, Ryan is very vocal about his political stance, which is a polarizing subject on most occasions. Now Tamra’s
resident sycophant co-star Gina Kirschenheiter shares her thoughts on Ryan and wants viewers to know he is a pretty good guy.
Everyone grab your tiny violins, it’s time to talk about Kristen Doute. The former SURver is heading into her 8th season on Vanderpump Rules and it looks like things are getting lonely for her. As you may know, Kristen is currently estranged from on/off best friends, Katie Maloney and Stassi Schroeder. She has been noticeably absent from any and all of Stassi’s wedding preparations amid confirmed reports her relationships are on life support.
Kristen also broke up with her boyfriend, Brian Carter, at the end of last season. Poor Carter
never worked had a problem with maintaining income that would support paying rent. For some reason this heavily impacted both Stassi and Katie’s life and factored into their struggling friendship with Kristen. Since then, Kristen has been busy with her new home and even started writing a self-help book, encouraging women to “own their crazy”. But don’t reach for the tissues quite yet. At least one old friend is standing by Kristen’s side and even showed up for a holiday photo.
Sometimes working out 127 hours a week doesn’t provide the results you are looking for. Apparently that was the case for Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Teresa Giudice. Teresa and her bod went through a metamorphosis during her namastay in prison. When the judicial system presented Tre with an extended vacation in jail camp, she decided to get into shape.
Emerging from her cocoon of indictment fit as a fiddle, Teresa continued her physical transformation after the death of her mother. She turned to weightlifting as a tool to deal with the grief of her loss and navigate the role of single mom while husband Joe Giudice was incarcerated. In 2018, Teresa even competed in a bodybuilding competition, taking a third place ribbon for her efforts. Now that Teresa got the body, she needs to keep the body. But she might have found out, the gym just can’t do everything.
