The divorce that shocked the world is FINALLY playing out on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi are no more. The mysterious marriage is coming to an end, and the insanity is only beginning. The other women have no idea what a ride they are in for this season. Erika can’t hide her life behind the curtain for too much longer. Too much is coming to light. It’s time to speak up or get out.
You have to wonder how legitimate Erika’s friendships are with Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley, & Lisa Rinna. They’re allegedly as thick as thieves, but they never saw this coming. They had no inkling whatsoever about this going down. What type of friend would keep their nearest and dearest in the dark like that? If anything, this might cause them to rethink their relationships with her. Will they hold her accountable for her secrecy?
Leah McSweeney reached her breaking point on last week’s episode of Real Housewives of New York. Her grandmother’s declining health is taking a grand toll on her. It’s causing Leah to lash out at everything and everyone in her path. Heather Thomson picked the wrong time to be shady and stir the pot. It’s clear Heather is purposely trying to illicit a reaction from Leah. However, Leah’s barrage of rage was disproportionate to Heather’s actions.
Everyone has an opinion about Leah & Heather. Everyone wants to take a side. However, which of these Queen Bee’s is actually going to come out on top? Heather might not be sticking around beyond this weekend, but does that make Leah the victor? How do you define a winner in a nasty feud like this? It’s clear these women have a deep disdain for one another already. It all comes down to this episode. Holla!
Well, yachties, this is it. The Season 2 finale of Below Deck Sailing Yacht. We’ve made it through a pandemic. The dreadful Barrie Drewitt-Barlow and his twisted Brady Bunch. One charter cut short by COVID, and another cancelled altogether. A pissing match over pita bread. A broken-down tender. “Ta-tas for Trump.” The least empowering women’s empowerment dinner of all time. A chlamydia scare (that turned out to be just run-of-the-mill chafing). And a messy love triangle that’s still not over. Honestly, what didn’t happen this season? Actually I do have something: it was a rare season where no one got fired.
So, remember last week when I pointed out the potential for the first-ever crossover event in Below Deck history? Yeah…that didn’t happen. Which I also predicted, but it still feels like a missed opportunity. Especially with Season 6 of Below Deck Mediterranean right around the corner. But alas. Instead, we get a completely different crew from the Lady Michelle for the final charter of the season. For reference, that is the boat we’ll be seeing next season on Below Deck Med. So now I’m left wondering about filming schedules and whether the two shows overlapped. Did Sailing Yacht wrapped before Captain Sandy Yawn and co. headed to Croatia? Was it the other way around? I need to know.
Sutton Stracke’s outburst on last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was BONKERS. It’s never nice to leave someone out of the loop, but her reaction was over the top. It proved that Sutton might not be built for a show like this. If she can’t handle something that mundane, how can she handle the big drama? Not everyone is equipped to handle the pitfalls of reality TV, and she might be one of them.
Erika Girardi has never shared that much of her life with the viewers. We’ve rarely gotten a peek behind that curtain of ice. However, the divorce announcement is coming this season. There’s no more hiding the situation from her closest friends. Will Erika be able to handle the pressure like a diamond? Or will the ice queen melt?
Whew! This season of The Real Housewives of New York has wasted no time diving into the drama deep end. Ending last week’s episode with Luann de Lesseps kicking Eboni K. Williams out of her home was shocking. Nobody saw that coming. The fight was initially about Leah McSweeney, but things quickly spiraled out of control. Hopefully Luann’s able to understand where she went wrong, and important conversations can be had to create change.
Heather Thomson’s presence on this vacation to The Hamptons is triggering Leah. This is a powder keg waiting to explode. These two women are not vibing in any way, shape, or form. Something is going to give when it comes to these two. They started off in a rocky place on the trip, but things gradually got a bit better. That is no more. No more pleasantries between the two. This show might only be big enough for one of these Queen Bees.
We’ve reached the penultimate episode of this charter season on Below Deck Sailing Yacht. And if you think this season has been off-kilter and slightly bizarre, I’ve got news for you. It’s not over yet. So prepare for things to take several unexpected left turns before this season crashes into the metaphorical dock. For one thing, we still caught in a love triangle that will…Literally. Never. Die. We still have serious questions surrounding Dani Soares‘ surprise pregnancy to account for. And just when you thought we’d made it through filming in a pandemic unscathed, COVID attempts to get the last laugh…
But back to that love triangle. We thought this had reached a conclusion weeks ago. Except last we left them, Gary King was planning on sleeping with Sydney Zaruba to get back at Alli Dore for breaking things off with him. Which she only did after finding out he’d already slept with Sydney. Gary’s need for female attention is like a demented merry-go-round. And surprise, you can never get off. Which, come to think of it, is probably more than fine with Sydney, who seems perfectly happy to be used in Gary’s sordid hookup revenge plot. The only person talking any sense in the situation is Colin Macrae, who flat out tells Gary he’s being a complete idiot. But Gary’s made up his mind and is determined to sleep with Sydney (again).
This season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is coming out of the gate strong. Garcelle Beauvais has already been taking the women to task for their questionable actions. Although she’s moving forward with Kyle Richards, things are still murky with Lisa Rinna. Lisa’s owning that she was a horrible friend, but actions will speak a lot louder. Trust is a fundamental aspect to a relationship. Right now, the trust level is close to nonexistent.
Last week’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ended with a monumental argument. New wives Sutton Stracke & Crystal Kung Minkoff got into a fiery back and forth regarding race. Obviously this is quite the sensitive topic, but kudos to Crystal for standing her ground. If Sutton would take the time to listen to what she has to say their feud might be avoided. However, it looks like last season’s golden child is losing her shine after this.
Heather Thomson returned to the Real Housewives of New York and entered the lion’s den. She had no idea what she was walking into. Leah McSweeney made it her mission to confront Heather for negative comments about the group in the press. It is quite courageous of Heather to even show up knowing she dragged most of the group. She managed to play it mostly cool at dinner, but it’s probably far from over.
Ramona Singer is suddenly so close to Heather which feels entirely out of left field. Given Leah’s rocky relationship with Ramona, this is going to do nothing but fuel the fire. There are two wannabe Queen Bee’s in the mix now, and only one can stand tall in the end. Will it be Leah or will it be Heather? It’s going to come down to who the group has more loyalty to. Technically we know what happens, but isn’t the fun in the journey?
