Dorit Kemsley Denies Money Issues, Says “Everything Is Perfect”; Would Welcome Lisa Vanderpump Back To RHOBH

Jesus, please come take the wheel and drive this woman in the direction of reality. Dorit Kemsley, Encino resident and star of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Got A Dollar? is speaking about the financial issues that trouble her and husband, PK Kemsley. Quite frankly, what else is she going to talk about? The new house she is renting? We have reached the “bless your heart” part of Dorit and PK’s financial woes, and I might actually start feeling sorry for them. Eventually. Kind of. Eh, not so much.

As you know, Dorit and PK are waist-deep in a court battle with Nicos Kirzis over a meager $1.2 million. I mean come on, Dorit and PK are upstanding citizens. If they really owed the money, they would pay it! After all, they are rich! It began innocently enough. PK was loaned some money. PK gambled it away filed for bankruptcy. Now PK feels his debt has been cleared. Unfortunately for the lender, his wallet is still feeling a little light. Nicos wants his cash and he is determined to get it. Now, despite a pending lawsuit over Dorit’s bathing suit company, a boatload of tax debt, and the current legal battles courtesy of Nicos – Dorit says it’s all good! Because, of course, she is.

Kate & Captain Lee

So happy Kate Chastain is back in our lives. If nothing else, Chief Stew Kate is also Chief Stew of Snark. I applaud her continued efforts on behalf of snarkers everywhere. Thankfully Kate has returned for the new season of Below Deck, we’re in Thailand where it is hot and sticky, but the local food is worth multiple bug bites from questionable insects.

The show is making another voyage on the high seas and we are already one episode down. Thanks to #editingbybravo the foreshadowing is on the wall for future troubles the crew will face. When the highly anticipated trailer for the new season was released, viewers saw Kate storming off the vessel whilst advising abdmonimally challenged chef Kevin Dobson to find a new chief stew. Now Kate explains why she peaced out on the chef, and the disappointment she inflicted on Captain Lee Rosbach.

Shannon and David

Shannon STORMS Beador is used to things not going her way. When she began her run on Real Housewives of Orange County, her now ex-husband, David Beador, was dipping his chips in someone else’s salsa. Much to the viewers’ weekly dread, The Affair became an entity on its own. We had counseling because of The Affair. We had awkward interactions with David and Shannon’s children, because of The Affair. And we learned nine lemons in a bowl with a side of crystals didn’t do a damn thing to end The Affair.

Ultimately Shannon, The Affair, and David ended their 17-year marriage. Shannon replaced David with the beloved Archie, and David immediately shacked up with another woman. Since then, Shannon has experienced weight gain, self-doubt, and breakdowns as a result of her relationship ending. Thankfully Shannon turned a corner. She started working out. She created her own business. And she started dating! Now as Shannon navigates her new love life, she has to circumvent the old one. But what happens when the two worlds collide? According to Shannon, about what you would expect.

Southern Charm Kathryn Dennis

I just want to begin by saying even for the most jaded reality television drama lovers, this one is sketchy. Southern Charm star, Kathryn Dennis has been accused of many things. She had a problem with substance abuse and went to rehab. She has been accused of being an unfit mother by Thomas Ravenel. The courts disagreed and she was awarded 50/50 custody of her kids after a lengthy battle. The father of her children also accused Kathryn of conspiring against him with the victim of a now-settled sexual assault charge. Thomas admitted guilt and was forced to pay a fine.

Throughout all of these accusations, Kathryn has remained relatively low key. She lost her mother to cancer over the summer and ended her relationship with former boyfriend, Hunter Price. Aside from a couple of car accidents, which didn’t exactly help her reformed image, Kathryn generally stays under the radar. Until now, that is. In a very twisted turn of events, new allegations were lodged against Kathryn. But by all accounts, it has no chance of sticking.

Former Southern Charm Star Thomas Ravenel Paid $125,000 To Settle Sexual Assault Lawsuit

Well, we were all right finally have some answers regarding the sexual assault trial that has plagued former Southern Charm star, Thomas Ravenel. In September 2018, Thomas was arrested. He was charged with assault and battery in the second degree. The charge stems from an incident that took place in January of 2015. While Thomas has faced other allegations of assault, this particular time it centered around the nanny of Thomas and Kathryn Dennis’ two children.

The victim accused Thomas of some truly heinous acts including, but not limited to, moderate bodily injury and touching her private parts and/or threatening to injure the victim. Since the assault, Thomas has bided his time with a custody fight for the children he shares with Kathryn. Thomas was finally able to address the sexual assault charges against him in September 2019. Apparently, we live in a society where a man can admit forced violation of a woman and walk by paying a fee less than someone’s monthly rent. Thomas entered a guilty plea and paid a $500 fine. If you have been scratching your head, wondering how in the hell this can happen, we have some details.

Mauricio Umansky

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, my friends, unless you live near the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Goin’ For Broke. Yes, the hills are alive… with the sound of lawsuuuuits. But what to choose from today? Let’s begin with Queen Kyle Richards and her husband, the always debonair Mauricio Umansky!

Mauricio had a big real estate oopsie over the sale of a $32 million mansion in the Bu. As the kids say, this has gotten messy af. Not only is Mauricio dealing with the initial lawsuit, the RHOBH cast has been dragged into it as well. Boy, it certainly would give many viewers a chuckle if Lisa Vanderpump had to show up for this case #goodbyekyle… If that isn’t enough, in September an additional legal dispute was tacked on the existing battle. Oh no, Mo! Gosh, I wish I could give you some good news for Kyle Mauricio, but here we are. Now it looks like Kyle might need to start stitching up some more caftans to sell, because another suit is headed their way.

Vicki Gunvalson Says Kelly Dodd Has Changed Since Joining RHOC; Vicki Wants Kelly To Take Accountability For Actions

First of all, HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Secondly, the Word of the Day is: hypocrisy. Former full-time Real Housewives of Orange County star, Vicki Gunvalson, is going to give us a lesson in our Word of the Day. Oh, this will be fun! Being Vicki’s friend is no easy task. It begs the question, is anyone friends with Vicki not on the Bravo payroll? Just ask Kelly Dodd. Since joining RHOC, Kelly has had disputes with most of her co-stars. From alums Heather Dubrow (I miss her, don’t judge me) and Meghan King Edmonds, to current conflicts with Tamra Judge and Shannon STORMS Beador, Kelly has added drama to the show.

Speaking of drama, Vicki is quite familiar with the word. We won’t mention her cancer-scamming sordid past with men. Or her endless fights with Tamra. It’s safe to say while Vicki once reigned supreme, the OG of the OC has morphed into the OG of the Oh Please Make It Stop. That said, Vicki is still out for blood and her target is Kelly. Vicki feels Kelly needs to start taking accountability for her actions and try being nice for a change. I will now invite you to remember our Word of the Day: Hypocrisy.

Aesha Scott From Below Deck Mediterranean Said João Franco Bullied Her Every Single Day

Below Deck Mediterranean might be gone for now, but it isn’t forgotten. The crew made it through some difficult charters, considering they began with a chef on loan from Taco Bell. Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier managed to do her best, despite losing one of her staff to the galley for the majority of charter season. Fortunately Hannah was #blessed with a competent associate this time around. Aesha Scott brought her lively spirit and ability to answer her radio on board.

Along with a positive attitude and respectable work ethic, Aesha also brought the funny. Many fans found her actions a bit over the top, and Aesha’s often bawdy expressions raised eyebrows, but Hannah lucked out. If nothing else, Aesha wasn’t Rocky Dakota. João Franco returned for round 2. Viewers remembered João’s previous season, where he leaned towards the idiot smarmy side, seemingly playing two young ladies off each other for attention. He wound up getting the girl, until she unceremoniously dumped him for calmer waters. We thought ‘ole boy João changed his smug ways, as he seemed more focused on his job than the women. Now we are finding out that might not be the case. According to Aesha, the guy didn’t change very much after all…
