Well, well, what do we have here? Does Kyle Richards have competition for the title of “Queen” on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Is the monarchy about to be overthrown? Let’s face it, the HBIC role is currently held by Kyle, but it seems to be by default. After Lisa Vanderpump quit the show, Kyle was blessed with the queen moniker by Erika Jayne at the Season 9 reunion. However, not one but two new cast members joining the ladies may keep Kyle’s reign brief. Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke are locked in and about to join the wild ride of reality television. At least the newbies are coming on board at the same time, so they have that in common. Another trait they share is being friends with Lisa Rinna.
Ah Rinna, what would we do without you? We would miss your at-home spa treatments. We would suffer in the wake of losing your knee-slapping hilarity. And I would personally miss the occasional appearance of Harry Hamlin. If you recall, Lisa is also old school friends with Denise Richards. They have shared appearances on television shows and maybe a boyfriend as well. This could lead to an interesting dynamic heading into the 10th RHOBH season. Now that Lisa could have a “team”, what does that mean for Queen Kyle? Is there a new sheriff in town after all?
There was no winner in the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills drama. It seems like Season 9 will haunt us forever. It is literally more frightening than Kyle Richards’ new movie. The biggest losers in this game are the fans.
At the risk of sounding theatrical (who, me?), Camille Grammer Meyer rose from the burning ashes of rubble left behind after Dorit Kemsley’s dog was unceremoniously dumped at a
kill shelter. She battled the major players, but saved a special spot in her heart for Dorit. No one was off-limits, not even LVP. When she took on Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave at the finale party it was, dare I say, almost magical. So WHY isn’t Camille a full-time cast member next season? Kyle has denied it was her call that nixed Cammy, but guess who is pulling receipts? Now Real Housewives of Orange County star, Tamra Judge speaks up (why???), and Camille lets her have a dose of the 007.
Real Housewives of New York‘s original cast members have come and gone. Some have just recently left… Then there are those who never really go away. Jill Zarin helped launch RHONY, along with Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, and Luann de Lesseps. While Beth, Ramona, and the Countess have all stayed relatively close to the fold, Jill
was fired left the series in 2011. After an explosive relationship with Bethenny that resulted in the end of their friendship, it also resulted in the end of Jill.
Jill didn’t let go easily. It’s never been a secret Jill wanted back in, but she basically blew it. During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live in 2012, Jill decided to “secretly tape” her interview with Andy Cohen. Let’s just say Big Daddy wasn’t tickled with the stunt queen move. That little slip up effectively booked Jill a trip to Bravo Siberia. But times have changed! Now that Bethenny has left the building, does this mean a door is open for Jill? Will viewers receive an encore performance of Jill’s panther-like moves on the tennis court? Maybe so, if Andy is in a forgiving mood.
She’s baaaaack? Bravo just loves toying with their fans’ emotions, am I right? I don’t think it is out of the question to say viewers may have some concerns about the next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Fan favorite Lisa Vanderpump took a surprising hike off the show while the remaining ladies juggle various legal issues. It has been confirmed two new cast members will join the crew. Lisa Rinna’s friend, Sutton Stracke and model/actress/goddess Garcelle Beauvais will hopefully add a much-needed touch of glamour.
the new queen Kyle Richards is coming back, along with her lapdog BFF Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. Yes, to the delight of everyone, Teddi has been spied with HRH Richards and cameras following them! You have to figure Dorit Kemsley will return because she has bills to pay will require atonement after last year’s #puppygate fiasco. Rinna basically does whatever anyone tells her to do, so we assume there’s been no change in her status. Erika Jayne managed to leave everyone with a question mark. There was a brief buzz that her husband wouldn’t let her film she had quit the show or received a demotion. Now as we wait for final confirmation on the current cast, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Erika has been spotted filming! And the world rejoiced…
If you are a loyal viewer of Real Housewives of Orange County, you know Tamra Judge has no problems flapping her gums. Tamra never seems to have a storyline, per se, unless you count her
incredibly fake entrance into the World of Christianity or her husband’s medical issues. That means Tamra has to step it up in other departments, namely talking trash. No one would dispute Tamra’s ability to spread dirt and infringe on the lives of her co-stars, but what happens when it turns around and bites her in her very toned backside?
Just ask Jim Bellino, former husband of
Jesus Jugs Alexis Bellino and present Tamra opponent. Jim is on the long list of people Tamra has verbally spanked, and he is calling her on it. During a 2018 interview, Tamra and Shannon STORMS Beador commented on the closing of Jim’s Sky Zone trampoline parks. Jim accused both Tamra and Shannon of lying along with slandering his reputation. Wait, Jim had a reputation? Anyway, Jim lawyered up and took it to court. Now Tamra might find out her mouth has written a check her insurance company doesn’t want to cash.
Shahs of Sunset has never been about the easy friendships of the cast. The show has basically been 7 seasons of a core group despising each other and then reconciling in 13 episodes of drunken antics and tears. In other words, perfect programming for Bravo. Part of the glue that ties these friends together is Reza Farahan and best friend, Mercedes “MJ” Javid. I suppose I should say “former best friend“. Over the years we have watched MJ and Reza squabble in various battles. Sometimes volatile, often motivated by alcohol, but always coming back together in the end.
Part of friendship is sharing big life events with each other, right? MJ and her husband, Tommy Feight, had a hell of a time conceiving a child. After successfully getting pregnant via IVF, MJ’s journey to motherhood was fraught with medical issues. MJ was placed on bedrest, she was at high risk for miscarriage, and she almost lost her life after finally giving birth. Somewhere along the way, Reza and MJ’s friendship began to break down. When Reza allegedly decided to share some sensitive medical information about MJ, Tommy’s loyal husband instincts took over. After Tommy sent “a message” to Reza in the form of killing his geraniums, Reza took action. Now we learn the price Tommy has to pay for rearranging Reza’s lanai.
Sometimes it might take a couple of attempts before you reach happily ever after. Just ask Vicki Gunvalson or Tamra Judge (and possibly Emily Simpson). Real Housewives of Orange County star, Gina Kirschenheiter is now finding this out for herself. She was married to ex-husband Matt for seven years and the couple share three children. After relocating from Long Island to California with hopes of a better future, their relationship began to break down. Gina’s marriage suffered from Matt
having an affair living separately while he held employment in Los Angeles.
Absence did not make the heart grow fonder in this case. Gina began to allude to marital dissent in Season 13 of RHOC. In April 2018, Gina filed for divorce, but according to her, they maintained a healthy outlook. Unfortunately, things took a violent turn for the worse in June of this year when Matt allegedly assaulted Gina in a drunken rage. Things quickly plummeted downhill for both parties in the aftermath of Matt’s arrest. Now Gina is trying to move on and recover from the trauma she faced. And Matt is trying to stay out of jail.
It’s not a great day to be Matt Kirschenheiter, but shit happens when you (allegedly) assault your wife. Gina Kirschenheiter has been experiencing some… technical difficulties thus far in 2019. On Real Housewives of Orange County, viewers are watching Gina navigate the fallout of her DUI in January. She has also joined the ranks of Not Really Housewives and moved into her own home after leaving her husband. Gina also admitted her former spouse allegedly had an affair, which has undoubtedly added to her distress.
Sometimes things get worse before they get better. After a relatively calm period and strengthening relapse with Matt, all hell broke loose on June 22. Matt allegedly took it upon himself to put his hands on Gina in a violent manner. While their children were at home. That caveman move effectively ended his career, his marriage, and got him a mugshot. Now after months of his fate hanging in the balance, it’s time for Matt to pay the piper.
