Well, friends, it is that time again. It is time to start speculating over who will be staying, leaving, or joining the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast. “OG” Housewife Lisa Vanderpump ditched the Season 9 reunion, and quit the show, in the aftermath of “puppy gate.” I think it is fair to say that after last season, most viewers would like to see a cast shake-up.
Lisa Rinna was one of the stars who celebrated the fact that RHOBH would be down one Vanderpump. Rinna joined the show in Season 5 along with her bestie, fellow soap actress Eileen Davidson. Rinna has never been afraid to showcase her life for the cameras. Viewers learned that Rinna’s husband, Harry Hamlin, enjoys disappearing into the wilderness alone for fun. Rinna and Harry’s daughter, Amelia Gray, discussed her battle with anorexia on the show. That was truly an emotional moment.
Camille Grammer has been front and center during Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She married David C. Meyer in Hawaii, and co-star Kyle Richards served as a bridesmaid. Viewers were able to see the wedding, and it was lovely. Lisa Rinna, Dorit Kemsley, and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave attended the nuptials.
But with Lisa Vanderpump skipping the wedding, Camille expressed her disappointment to the Beverly Hills ladies. Soon after, a magazine article professing how much Camille cares for LVP appeared, and the RHOBH cast was miffed. In fact, on the way to the airport, they dissed Camille’s special day. No one puts Camille in a corner, and she came out swinging!
Denise Richards may have been a newbie this season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but she certainly made her mark. There was that time she went to have drinks with the ladies at their hotel. Of course, the ladies were glammed to the max in cocktail dresses. Our girl, Denise, wore a top and white shorts. The shocked reactions of the Beverly Hills ladies were priceless!
We also watched Denise tie the knot with the apparently well-endowed Aaron Phypers. (I could have done without that information.) Denise wasn’t afraid to be extremely late to her own wedding, and she ditched a traditional gown for a sexy romper. After all, Denise is so chill she planned the whole wedding in just two days.
Lisa Vanderpump has been through the wringer. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star lost her brother to a suspected drug overdose. If you believe most of the RHOBH cast, she was instrumental in leaking the “puppy gate” drama to a tabloid. Why? To ruin Dorit Kemsley’s reputation.
Look, if Dorit had returned Lucy Lucy Apple Juice to Vanderpump Dogs instead of rehoming the pup, we would have been busy discussing Dorit and husband PK Kemsley’s shady financial troubles. Dorit really doesn’t need any help spoiling her reputation. Kyle Richards confronted Lisa at Villa Rosa about the leak, and their once-close friendship went up in flames. And now, Lisa is also dealing with the death of her mother in England.
Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was all about “puppy gate” and it’s fall-out. I cannot believe that I am still writing about Dorit Kemsley’s botched puppy adoption. Dorit should have returned the puppy to Vanderpump Dogs, but instead re-homed Lucy Lucy Apple Juice. The pup ended up in a shelter. All because Dorit didn’t
read abide by the adoption contract. Thanks a bunch, Dorit! A tabloid ran with the story, and the Beverly Hills Housewives decided that Lisa Vanderpump leaked the information about Dorit’s misdeed.
Kyle Richards confronted her long-time bestie and accused Lisa of lying when she denied talking to the tabloid. The confrontation was brutal and hard to watch. Lisa’s enraged husband, Ken Todd, ordered Kyle out of idyllic Villa Rosa. And just like that, the friendship between Kyle and Lisa was done.
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.
Ramona Singer is the “OG” of Real Housewives of New York. She has been on the show since day one, and she never left, unlike Bethenny Frankel, who left and returned. Luann “Cabaret” De Lesseps was at one time demoted to be a lowly Friend of the Housewives.
Ramona has, as always, been busy causing drama during Season 11. At Barbara Kavovit’s clambake, Ramona made her own lobster goodie bags by shoving lobsters in a plastic bag to bring home. At another time, Ramona was caught kissing serial Housewife dater Harry Dubin. Why, Ramona? Why?
Camille Grammer has had a dramatic season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She wed David C. Meyer in Hawaii. Even though Camille personally asked Lisa Vanderpump to come to her nuptials, Lisa refused because of all the “puppy gate” fall-out with her
former friends co-stars.
Then Camille lost her house in the California wildfires. Camille was about to have her feet held to a different sort of fire when the Beverly Hills ladies confronted Camille about her flip-flopping feelings about LVP.
