Lisa Vanderpump

Viewers knew Season 9 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was going to be a rough one for Lisa Vanderpump. Before it even began, Lisa was absent from group photos. Then no one from the cast attended the Vanderpump Dogs Gala. 

Ten episodes into the season also known as “#puppygate,” we’ve seen for ourselves how things have gone from bad to worse between Lisa and her costars. It culminated in the infamous showdown at Villa Rosa with Kyle Richards.  An episode followed by one in which Camille Grammer made fun of Lisa’s teeth and breath at an outing with the other ladies .

Dorinda Medley

Dorinda Medley tried to make Bluestone Manor scary but “nice” for Halloween on the Real Housewives of New York.  That ranged from peeping vampires, a Morgan mansion tour and a naked chef. Much to Dorinda’s annoyance, her costars thought sleeping in the fish room was the scariest thing about the manor.  

The room assignment passed around like a hot potato. Ultimately, newcomer Barbara Kavovit was left holding it.  The second scariest part was Sonja Morgan’s drunken meltdown at dinner, which was provoked by Dorinda manhandling some Morgan artifacts during their visit to Ventfort Hall.

Kim Kardashian Is Studying Law And Plans To Take Bar Exam

Viewers have been Keeping Up With the Kardashians, literally,  for 16 seasons-– seasons. That’s because the first family of reality television keeps delivering the dramatic goods. This includes a whole new generation of adorable Kardashians. It’s hard to believe this empire was spawned by a sex tape that featured the first among equals Kim Kardashian and her ex-boyfriend Ray J.

A tape that Kim’s genius momager Kris Jenner used to turn water into wine when she shopped around their reality show.  It seems another lifetime ago. Now the youngest sibling, Kylie Jenner is a mom and a billionaire. Almost as incredibly, Kim, who never graduated from college, is studying to become a lawyer! 

Sonja Morgan

The cast of the Real Housewives of New York has departed the Hamptons for Dorinda Medley’s Blue Stone Manor in the Berkshires. Dorinda really did try and make it nice. That included a field trip to a historic Morgan House for Sonja Morgan’s sake where Dorinda casually touched some of the artifacts much to Sonja’s dismay.

Sonja still regrets the end of her dynastic marriage. So after they return to the lesser manor, she starts drinking like she’s making up for Luann de Lesseps.  Drunk Sonja greets newcomer and latecomer Barbara Kavovit outside where in addition to insulting Dorinda’s apartment, Barbara hates on the fish room before setting foot inside. It’s not a great look on a houseguest. Or a new cast member.

Suds Ahoy! Austen Kroll Has Just Launched A Brews Cruise

Last season on Southern Charm, Austen Kroll‘s female costars thought he might be turning into the new Shep Rose, otherwise known as “Shep 2.0.” Those are very big shoes to fill. But once Austen seemed to settle into long-term unemployment and mess things up with costar Chelsea Meissner, who often picked up the tab on their dates, it looked like a good fit.  

In his defense, Austen was trying to create his own line of beer. At least it seemed like a more viable business than Craig Conover’s pillow line.  At the Season 5 reunion, Austen told host Andy Cohen that he was still in “stages” with his beer, which meant trying out names, networking and branding.   

 

Dorinda Medley

On the Real Housewives of New York this season, Dorinda Medley is willing to do everything but apologize to Luann de Lesseps to make it nice.  So for the cast trip to the Berkshires, Dorinda arranged yoga for Luann at Luann’s request.

Luann also wanted a massage, which Dorinda says she’ll handle.  All of Dorinda’s hospitality is for naught, however, when Luann learns she’s sleeping in the fish room, where she’d last awoken with an epic hangover. Watching Luann’s reaction makes Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer cackle like hyenas.

Sonja Morgan Clarifies Dorinda Medley Made Fun Of Luann de Lesseps’s Lawsuit, Not Her

Last week on the Real Housewives of New York, Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley ended up in the same room, twice. That was progress (sort of) in their ongoing feud, which is the major storyline of Season 11. First, at Sonja Morgan’s Paper Magazine party where Dorinda told Luann she loved her, which was not-at-all convincing. So only Sonja was ready to kiss and make up. In this case a “drive-by lesbian moment” with a young stunning brunette.

Bethenny Frankel tried again with the duo at a gangsta lunch, which resulted in a truce. Barbara Kavovit was also there. Dorinda then invited Barbara to her apartment to discuss renovations and the feud. Dorinda used the opportunity to lie when she was asked if she’d been making fun of Luann’s lawsuit with her ex-husband and children. Thankfully, the editors rolled the tapes showing the receipts.  Dorinda blamed Sonja before bursting into tears and throwing Barbara out of her apartment.

Tom D’Agostino Claims Luann de Lesseps Cheated First

Tom D’Agostino deserves a bushel of apples for the drama he’s delivered on Real Housewives of New York.  There was his whirlwind relationship and short-lived marriage to Luann de Lesseps. A marriage that ended just a hair over seven months in.

From the start, it seemed like a question of “when” it would be over rather than “if.”  Particularly after Bethenny Frankel told Luann about photos of Tom kissing another woman just weeks after they got engaged.  After the wedding, it seemed like there was a new story every week on Tom’s alleged shadiness. Then following news of their divorce, the internet went crazy and Tom was branded as a cheater, liar, and all-around bad guy.  Even so, Luann denied that infidelity played a role in their split.
