GOODBYE KYLE! The fight betweenLisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards still has us shook. The entire argument at Villa Rosa was disturbing to watch. Their longtime friendship is in shambles, and may never recover. It’s crazy to think that a little rescue dog with the dumbest name ever came in between them like this. However, even though the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are Team Kyle, not everyone is.
Even though Lisa’s costars may not seem very loyal to her, one group of people owes Lisa EVERYTHING. The Vanderpump Rules cast is surely Team Lisa all the way on this right? Lisa went through hell with Brandi Glanville over her allegiance to Scheana Marie. Surely, Scheana is automatically on Lisa’s side no questions asked as a result. Right? It turns out that the longtime SURver might not see the situation so black and white.
Both Lisa Vanderpump fans and Lisa Vanderpump haters can agree that she does amazing work for the dogs. Her heart is definitely in the right place and she is genuine with all of her philanthropic efforts.
But what about the PR tactics? That’s where the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers are split. Some people say that LVP had nothing to do with leaking the article aboutDorit Kemsley’s failed dog adoption. Others are adamant that Lisa orchestrated an elaborate plan. Then, there are some people who believe Lisa did have a hand in this, but they simply don’t care. This is where I fall because Dorit deserved to be exposed for her SECOND failed dog adoption. I just wish Lisa owned it and brought Dorit down a peg or two. Or fifty. Call her out, Lisa.
They’ve had arguments in the past, but those got resolved a few episodes later. This time, it’s very different. Lisa stopped filming Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in the middle of the season. They haven’t seen each other since that day. Now, their fellow RHOBH OG cast member Camille Grammer is weighing in on the fight.
Let’s be honest (sorry, super fans): Lisa Vanderpump gets a completely different edit on Vanderpump Rules than she does on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. On Vanderpump Rules, Lisa is the sweet mentor who has given these “waitresses” golden opportunities that they don’t deserve. On RHOBH, she is constantly called out for being a puppet master.
At this point, I don’t get why Lisa would even bother with the bull shit on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills when she can just pop in sporadically on Vanderpump Rules. That role just seems way easier to me. Anyway, it has to be so weird knowing Lisa as a cast member on one show and watching her on the other. Recently, Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder and Lala Kent weighed in on the Lucy Lucy Apple Juice saga.
Tuesday nights are one of my favorite nights of the week, as I know that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is on. It is one of the few shows I actually watch live instead of on my DVR-and I am even willing to put up with the commercials! Beverly Hills is generally light and frothy with a little drama thrown in. Which is a nice break from some of the heavy going of other reality shows.
In the most recent episode, however, things took a very dark turn in Beverly Hills. The confrontation between Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richardsis one of the most painful things I have watched on reality television. You know how the previews of a scene are often a let down when the show actually airs? Well, this one was even more dramatic and heartbreaking than the clips teased. And Teddi Mellencamp Arroyaveis not shy about letting us know whose side she is on in the dispute between Lisa and Kyle.
Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills certainly has focused on one issue—what happened to Lucy Lucy Apple Juice. We all know that Dorit Kemsley and her husband, PK Kemsley, violated their adoption contract with Vanderpump Dogs by re-homing Lucy rather than returning her to Lisa Vanderpump’s organization. Lucy nipped the children and PK, so it is understandable that Dorit had to make some hard decisions. But Dorit had previously returned a dog to Vanderpump Dogs, so she should have known the rules. Somehow poor Lucy ended up in a kill shelter. If only Dorit had read the contract that she signed, or just given the dog back, all of this would have been avoided. And we would instead be speculating about why Harry Hamlin is spending so much time in the Canadian wilderness without wife Lisa Rinna. (Sorry, Rinna!)
It all ends badly, but we start out lovely by watching Denise Richards and Aaron Phypers open their wedding presents. I wished we could’ve seen them unwrap the tequila from Dorit Kemsley, but alas Dorit probably ‘conveniently forgot’ the wedding gift, just like she conveniently forgets to tell her so-called close friend that she gave her dog away to a woman she kinda knows, or doesn’t know, or is an associate of PK’s or is you know, a shelter named A Very Lovely Random Woman.
