Things aren’t always as they appear, especially on reality TV. Sometimes, a person seems like she’s happily married. And, then, all of a sudden, there’s a divorce filing in the news.
Word on the street, and by “street” I mean “according to a blind item on Instagram” a Real Housewife recently separated from her husband. As the term “blind item” suggests, no specific names were mentioned, but there were plenty of hints to narrow things down.
Kyle Richards has many talents, but amateur sleuthing is not one of them. Neither is being subtle. Or offering heartfelt apologies. This trio of flaws may do some damage to her public image, though viewers of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will not be surprised.
Kyle’s brazen and very public approach to a delicate situation has created a bigger issue than necessary and also put her in the hot seat to issue an apology. A sincere apology. And this time, it’s not one of her cast-mates asking for one.
Does the drama ever end in Beverly Hills? Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans learned that Denise Richards quit the show after alum Brandi Glanville told the world that she and Denise hooked up. Denise denied the allegations, and also denied having an open marriage with her husband, Aaron Phypers.
In a refreshing change of pace, Teddi Mellencamp admitted to the world that she was actually fired from RHOBH. Viewers know that “OG” Kyle Richards and Teddi are besties that are attached at the hip. Well, when Teddi isn’t hanging out in her father’s shadow.
After Stassi Schroeder got fired from Vanderpump Rules, her brother posted a video begging for her to get her job back. That didn’t work, but, he’s not the only teen who’s job hunting on behalf of former Bravolebrities.
Brandi Glanville had her son Jake Cibrian share a message for Andy Cohen, begging for her to get her job back on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I know Brandi is a polarizing figure among the RHOBH viewers, but she was definitely used this season. Then again, she definitely used Denise Richards, but production completely relied on Brandi’s hookup claims since no one else had a storyline to share.
If you don’t know about Rihanna’s fashion line by now, have you even been paying attention? Not only is it one of the most iconic fashion lines of our time, but it gained further attention in the Bravo-sphere during this past season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Fans watched the Sutton Stracke evolve into a fully formed 2020 fashion guru right before their eyes. Sutton went from confusing Fenty with Fendi to, in the reunion, apologizing to Rihanna and her fans directly. (Don’t you just love a Housewife who can own a simple mistake?).
In case you missed it, Rihanna has recently been stanning Housewives publicly. She’s called RHOBH’s own Garcelle Beauvais a “real one”. Now she’s getting Erika Jayne into the mix!
When the news broke that Keeping Up With the Kardashians will end after Season 20, some Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans said that they wanted Kris Jenner to join the show. She is already friends with Kyle Richards and Lisa Rinna. Kris is also connected “the morally corrupt” Faye Resnick from the OJ days.
Now that Denise Richards is gone and Teddi Mellencamp admitted that she got fired, there are spots to fill. Andy Cohen recently said that he could never imagine Kris joining a show that she can’t executive produce (i.e. control the content), like she has on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
I’ll wait… Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Lisa Rinna is a hustler of epic proportions. Adult diapers? She’s sold them. Sassy dusters with a lightweight fabric? Old news to her. Shitty attitude? That’s been on clearance for about three seasons now. To say Lisa isn’t well-versed in the art of retail is like saying Kyle Richards doesn’t enjoy a co-dependent relationship.
After making bank at QVC and receiving checks from RHOBH, what else does Rinna need to do? Now her sights are set on the beauty industry. Oh hell, why not. If Kyle can have a line of clothing at NY Fashion Week, is this so bizarre? Who doesn’t want to buy beauty products from someone who has had the same hair for twenty years? But nothing stops the Rinna machine and with that, she is launching Rinna Beauty.
The early years of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills revolved around the tension and animosity between Kyle Richards and her sister Kim Richards. Kyle outed Kim as an alcoholic in the back of a limo during the season 1 finale. They also spent that whole first season reminding people that they’re Paris Hilton’s aunts, a fun fact that has lost its luster in recent years. Kyle sided with Lisa Rinna when she threw a glass at Kim during the cast trip in Amsterdam.
Then, Kim and Kathy Hilton took issue with Kyle for producing a
failed scripted series based on their family. Kyle has had many ups and downs with both Kim and Kathy over the years. Still, we have seen some small cameo appearances from Kathy throughout the years. Now, there are rumblings that Kathy will join the cast for Season 11.
