The past season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills revolved around Dorit Kemsley. As the public attempts to push #puppygate to the darkest corner of their minds, it’s now being rehashed on the reunion. Dorit played the victim so well, you would have thought she was doing budget Shakespeare in the Park. The mum of two hasn’t a care in the world, with her
rented Hollywood mansion and leased rosè hued Bentley.
We have rarely seen a flaw in Dorit’s armor of Alexander McQueen couture and diamond baubles. But all isn’t perfect in Dorit’s
fantasy world. A dark cloud has been hovering over Dorit and PK Kemsley for quite some time. Thanks to public records and Camille Grammer, fans of RHOBH finally see through the facade of Chanel and suspicious accents. While the cast took luxurious trips and displayed their wealth, something else was happening. Behind the scenes, most of the Housewives were dealing with legal issues. Financial legal issues. As layers have been uncovered and lawsuits exposed, we are finding out that while Dorit may consider herself the Queen of McQueen, she also might be the Queen of Delusion.
Ah, Denise Richards. The newest cast member of Real Housewives of Beverly
Pills Hills. One of the last to remain on good terms with recently ousted Lisa Vanderpump. Denise was a super chill, bonafide “beach girl”, living by the sea in her Malibu home. She got along with veterans Kyle Richards and Lisa Rinna. She was not intimidated by Erika Jayne, nor was she phased by Dorit Kemsley and her extensive collection of wigs and accents.
Denise was fun and games, sharing anecdotes about her newlywed life with Aaron Phypers. He now walks the streets of Beverly Hills in a cocoon of shame, after the intimate details she confessed on a group trip. Denise is also responsible for bringing Brandi Glanville back into our lives. Thanks so much for that! Strike one! Nearing the end of the season, viewers were treated to a glimpse of Denise’s argumentative side. She confronted Kim Richards at a party whilst defending Rinna about the infamous blue bunny. Strike two? Now we are seeing the ire rise up in Denise again. She has thoughts on what is and is not appropriate to discuss in someone’s personal life. Will this be strike 3 for Denise, or does she have a point?
I’m just gonna be honest: I was bored watching the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion. Maybe it’s because this season has been so overblown. All the revelations about Lisa Vanderpump not showing were already out and it was just a big old meh. It was big old gushy fake love fest about how Kyle Richards is queen… And Erika Jayne needs one of Dorit Kemsley‘s CLIPs to be put over her mouth.
Speaking of clips, the ones in Dorit’s hair should have read, “Fake” “Broke” “Grifter” “Dog Dumper” “Liar” “Bad Designer” And worst of all, “PK’s Wife.” The rest of Dorit’s outfit looked like a disco ball blew up. Hey, they’re broke so reduce, reuse, recycle to make the most of life on limited means.
Tonight the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion we’ve all been waiting for begins! To be clear we’ve been waiting for this reunion because that means this ridiculous non-season is officially over!
All the ladies and Andy Cohen arrive on set expecting to finally get their long-awaited confrontation with Lisa Vanderpump to demand answers about PuppyGate, only to learn that Lisa isn’t showing up!
Of course this just means the women get to stick to their schtick of talking about Lisa instead of being real and honest about their own lives. That is until new scapegoat Camille Grammer shows up!
Remember when Taylor Armstrong was on Season 1 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? One, or rather two, things were obvious: Taylor had enormously plump lips, and she loved her cocktails. Her marriage to Russell Armstrong was a big storyline on early seasons, as well as the extravagant parties that the duo threw for their beloved daughter, Kennedy Armstrong.
In a shocking turn of events, Russell died of an apparent suicide on August 16, 2011. Russell was dealing with legal issues, such as several lawsuits and bankruptcy. Less than a month earlier, Taylor had filed for divorce. She also alleged that Russell physically and mentally abused her. This was a disturbingly dark period in Housewives history.
The legal trouble for Erika Jayne‘s husband, Tom Girardi may be coming to an end.
The high-profile lawyer finally reached a settlement over his alleged unpaid loan of millions.
When I sat down to write this post, I decided to refresh my recollection regarding the messy divorce between Camille Meyer (f/k/a Camille Grammer) and Kelsey Grammer. First of all, Camille filed for divorce in 2010. I remember watching an episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in which Camille and Kelsey awkwardly rode to the Tony Awards together. They were in the back of a limo. Camille was wearing a red dress and looked amazing. Kelsey was mean to her. Soon after it came out that Kelsey was having an affair.
Anyway, to bring this story back to the really important point: how it relates to me… That episode aired 2009/10-ish? Which means I have wasted at least ten years of my life watching this drivel. Forget the Tony that Kelsey was speeding towards in the back of that limo a decade-ish ago! I deserve some sort of lifetime achievement award from Bravo. I will accept my award in the form of Skinnygirl products.
It looks as though Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Mauricio Umansky’s legal problems are not over yet. In fact, a recent order from a judge has found there is enough cause for the lawsuit against Mauricio to proceed.
I bet Kyle Richards is happy this is happening AFTER filming of RHOBH has ended. Imagine sharing something so personal and potentially embarrassing with the public.
