Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills - Teddi & Dorit

I started this season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills planning to keep an open mind, but the plotting is just so sloppy and transparent. And not the plotting Lisa Vanderpump is doing!

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave has, by now, told about 15 renditions of her involvement/non-involvement in DogGate. In each version, she becomes increasingly naive and played for a fool. Also each time one of her versions doesn’t coincide with the revision, the other women conveniently brush it aside and double-down on the narrative that Teddi is the victim. Or Dorit Kemsley is. Really?

For instance tonight Teddi told her therapist she never spoke directly to Lisa about Doggate (Why are we still talking about this?!), then told Dorit and the other women that she was on a three-way call with Lisa and John Sessa which proves LVP is directly involved. Isn’t the  whole point of Teddi’s argument that LVP isn’t owning her part and wants to frame Teddi? Well, it sounds like Teddi is doing the same exact thing!

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave On Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

Tonight the axis of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills officially shifts when Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, a turtle of accountability, cements her very misplaced alliance with the rest of the cast against Lisa Vanderpump. All this over Dorit Kemsley (who has a deflated bank account to go with her droopy ethics and very drooping bikini tops) mistreating a dog and a friend.

I mean, when you (Teddi) are basing your rejection of a friendship based on said friend’s (LVP) possible collaboration in exposing a really shitty, contract violating, grifting, lying animal mistreating, a-hole, you probably need to reexamine your priorities in life and your version of morality. Just my opinion! But there goes Teddi throwing accountability to the wolves of Erika Girardi, Lisa Rinna, and Dorit. Girl… have fun with that til they turn back on you. 

Taylor Armstrong Says Daughter Kennedy Doesn’t Miss Her Late Dad Russell

Taylor Armstrong was one of the original Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Taylor instantly made a splash thanks to her oversized pout and over-the-top birthday parties for her daughter Kennedy Armstrong. Additionally, she was known for a dark storyline that involved a toxic marriage to Russell Armstrong that ended in his suicide and her own very public nervous breakdown.
One month before Russell killed himself in August 2011, Taylor filed for divorce, citing physical and verbal abuse. After Russell’s death, Taylor remarried John Bluher and started a new life in Colorado. She and John appeared on the show Couples Therapy together. Taylor has also appeared on RHOBH since her departure after season 3, and rumors swirl periodically that she will return as a full-time Housewife.  Recently Taylor has opened up about how Kennedy, now 12-years-old, is doing years later after the loss of her father.

Dorit Kemsley Lisa Vanderpump RHOBH Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion

Last season the cracks started to form in Dorit Kemsley and Lisa Vanderpump’s friendship. However, this season it looks as if they’ve reached a point of no return. So far nobody knows exactly what happened with Lucy Lucy Apple Juice. Nobody wants to accept accountability for this mess. Did Dorit really let Lisa know that she was giving the dog to another home? Is LVP “hell-bent” on getting this Dorit story out there?

We saw Lisa try to punish Dorit last season, so it’s not too far fetched to think she’s doing it again. That being said, there doesn’t seem to be any concrete proof against LVP. Hopefully, we get clarity on the situation at some point throughout the season. Things are looking rocky for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars right now, but maybe they can repair their friendship. Thankfully, Dorit is giving us her stance on the future of her friendship with Lisa. 

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave

I feel like Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave was told to take it up a notch this season. Last year, she was super chill. Her main conflicts were upsetting Dorit Kemsley for using the wrong stemware, and upsetting Erika Girardi because she has a famous dad. Also knowing nothing about fashion. 

This season, Teddi 2.0 showed up. And she came in hot! All glammed up and gunning for her former friend, Lisa Vanderpump. After all, a storyline against Lisa equals more camera time. Hence #puppygate was born. And like a dog with a bone (sorry, I had to), Teddi is not letting go anytime soon.

Camille Grammer

Isn’t it great to be seeing more of Camille Grammer this season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? She always adds a little something extra to the show. A bit of levity when things get crazy. And just the right amount of snark. Hopefully, Bravo will share some of her recent wedding to David C. Meyer on an upcoming episode. It is nice to watch Camille experiencing some joy, as her life has often been challenging since becoming a Housewife.

Camille has faced many adversities over the past nine seasons of Beverly Hills, including an ugly divorce from Kelsey Grammer, a battle with cancer and the recent loss of her home in the Woolsey Fire in Malibu. One sensitive matter that has not come up in the media lately is Camille’s alleged assault by then-boyfriend Dimitri Charalambopoulos in 2013. Now, Camille is asking for a media ban when the case finally goes to trial next month.

Mauricio Umansky

Kyle Richards is all about honesty this season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Even her tagline suggests “the truth always rises to the top”. Be careful what you wish for, honey! Kyle’s husband, Mauricio Umansky now joins fellow RHOBH husbands PK Kemsley, and Tom Girardi in the Litigation Club! How cozy!
Does Beverly Hills have something in the water that forces men to do (allegedly) shady business? Has Lisa Vanderpump used her witchy-British, manipulation skills in an effort to curse those who have turned against her? What does Mauricio’s giant lawsuit mean for Kyle’s burgeoning Rolex collection?

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave - Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Teddi Mellencamp Arroyaveis done getting walked all over!

She has found herself at the center of the puppygate drama. And she is now pitted against Lisa Vanderpump in a no holds barred fight about who was right.
