Kristen Doute has been trying to recuperate her image since she was fired from Vanderpump Rules. No one here needs a reminder that her and Stassi Schroeder were axed by Bravo for filing a false police report against Faith Stowers. But I’ll reiterate it anyway because it was awful, stupid, unnecessary, and definitely racial profiling.
Since her termination, Kristen has made various attempts to rehab her persona right her wrongs. She apologized to Faith via a DM on social media, has been posting on social to support Black Lives Matter, and released a statement with Stassi and their crisis management team. Some may say Kristen is learning, others might say her actions aren’t enough. There is now one more thing Kristen is doing to reconcile public perception.
The most recent episode of Below Deck Mediterranean was an absolute doozy. Doozie? I don’t know. I’m still recovering. **Spoiler Alert**
Watching chef Kiko Lorran be applauded by the guests split between him sobbing in his cabin and telling chief stew Hannah Ferrier he loves her forever warmed my cold dead heart. Watching Captain Sandy Yawn scurry around figuring out that a beloved chef being fired mid charter might bring down morale cooled it right back off though. Don’t worry. As always, Hannah was caught between the two trying to hold it all together. She’s already dealt with a ton. There was the loss of her second stew. Then the return of her less-than-friend, Bugsy Drake. Let’s not forget she’s still sharing quarters with racist and since fired idiot, Pete Hunziker. Though well-earned, it didn’t make watching Hannah’s panic attack on this week’s episode any easier.
Below Deck Mediterranean has turned into a hotbed of discourse. The season started off on a female-empowering note, with ladies in the lead positions, ready to tackle privileged guests and a crew of television hopefuls. Under the direction of Captain Sandy Yawn, it appears everyone might be micromanaged into despair. Everyone except Malia White. Malia returned with a new title under her belt and as you know, with great power there must also come great responsibility…
As the yacht’s resident bosun and the first woman to hold the title on camera, Malia has a lot on her plate. She takes her new role very seriously and appears to be following the rules, much to the delight of Captain Sandy. But is she dipping her toes into the refreshing micro-managing seas of her leader? Hannah Ferrier might have an opinion.
Oh, Lisa Vanderpump, what a tangled web you weave. First, she has a lot to celebrate. Lisa has announced starting a new podcast and a new show about Vanderpump Dogs! I can’t wait to hear all about “ponies…and sex…or lack thereof.” A regular rainbows and butterflies kind of gal. Unfortunately, though, LVP’s image has also been hit with quite a few blows recently.
Vila Blanca has closed for good, and even Adrienne Maloof is coming forward to remind us of all the storylines LVP has constructed over the years. I think the running total is at like 5? Well, unfortunately, it doesn’t look like there’s a reprieve in sight for this lady in pink.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne spent several seasons showing viewers very little of her actual life. This season viewers have watched Erika preparing to step onto the Broadway stage as Roxie in Chicago. Unfortunately, the show had to close in March of 2020 because of the coronavirus. Camille Grammer criticized Erika for using the show for self-promotion, and not featuring her real life. Erika has promoted her book and her music on the show a lot.
We also watched Erika verbally spar with Denise Richards’ husband, Aaron Phypers, during Season 10 of RHOBH. Erika does not appreciate husbands getting into housewives’ business.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues, more and more Bravolebrities are coming out with their own experiences contracting the virus.
Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Jennifer Aydin revealed she had the illness, along with her father and daughter. More recently, Real Housewives of Atlanta alum, Sheree Whitfield contracted it as well. Now another RHOA former star has also divulged their diagnosis.
I have to admit, Love After Lockup is my ultimate guilty pleasure. While housewives will always have a special place in my heart, I’m not exactly embarrassed to admit that I watch it. Love After Lockup? I need to feel people out before actually admitting how into this show I am. I don’t know if it’s the dysfunction or the sheer anticipation of who is going to get used. But it’s quite the combo.
One couple that I just knew deep down wouldn’t make it was Daniel Valentine and Lizzy Copeland. How did I know? Well, it didn’t exactly take a genius to figure it out. Plus, it’s never a good sign when your relationship is reduced to having sex on the laundry room floor. But really, Lizzy seemingly struggled with alcohol and Daniel with drugs. That’s a hard combination to overcome for anyone, much less a newly freed inmate and his fiancé.
Lawsuits, lawsuits! Get your piping hot lawsuits! Honestly, does anyone not have a lawsuit pending on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Even Denise Richards is getting in on the fun with a cease and desist this season! Now I know it’s not technically a lawsuit but it’s one step away.
But really, it’s kind of shocking how hard the cast is going in on Denise this season about not being who she says she is. Lisa Rinna might want Denise to “own it”. But if they are going to drag Denise for not “owning it”, they need to do some inventory of their own
messes lives. It’s well known that Kyle Richards’ husband, Mauricio Umansky, had a massive lawsuit against him. Let us not forget our scam queen, Dorit Kemsley and husband PK Kemsley. Their gambling debts cannot go unnoticed! And finally, Erika Jayne’s husband, Tom Girardi has multiple suits against him. Shall we own that, ladies?
