At this point, there are two Real Housewives of Potomac reunion episodes left. Robyn Dixon just needs to say who’s “d” Michael Darby (allegedly) said he wanted to suck. We all have a guess who it is because, well, there’s one obvious answer. No shade to anyone, but it has to be Juan Dixon right?
Robyn, Candiace Dillard, and Chris Bassett all heard him make the same remark. Unfortunately, they’ve kept the secret under wraps all season long. Brandi Glanville weighed in, of course. And she thinks Michael was talking about Juan and she has no problem with Michael having an alleged interest in the former basketball player.
Real Housewives of Orange County’s Tamra Judge has been working overtime to save her Housewives orange. Ever since the “OG of the OC” Vicki Gunvalson was demoted, Tamra has been talking. A lot.
During an episode of RHOC, Vicki mentioned that she knew a terrible secret about Kelly Dodd, who was not present at that dinner. Tamra blurted out something about a train. Later that night, after Vicki departed, Tamra told the other Housewives that Vicki had told her that Kelly was part of a sex train with 8 guys. Way to toss Vicki under the train, Tamra.
Real Housewives of Orange County is starting to turn into a crime scene. Not a crime against fashion, although that is possible. This is more of a crime to stay significant. And the accusations are flying with a capital F You. Tamra Judge has been leading the way this season, but only because Vicki Gunvalson is now on the passenger’s side of the fun bus.
Vicki and Tamra have a sordid history between them. Tamra gained fame for over-serving a freshman Gretchen Rossi at a party. Then Tamra proceeded to watch drunk Gretchen dry hump her adult son’s leg. TAMRAAAH! evolved into, Ugh, Tamra… after that display. Oh and then there’s the angel Vicki. I fondly recall when Vicki “stood by her man” and alienated her family and co-stars as she defended her beloved who deceived literally everyone. About having cancer. Now, these two beacons of morality have decided to label someone as a liar.
We have come to learn many things about Lisa Rinna during her years as a Housewife. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star loves to stir the pot, deflecting from her own issues at all costs. She is a crafty expert at using others–like Kim Richards—to create storylines. We know she is crazy about her hubby Harry Hamlin. And Lisa loves to promote her daughters’ modeling careers.
Lisa also craves the spotlight, doing everything from performing desperate tabletop stripper moves to playing a vulgar Erika Jayne for Halloween. Mrs. Hamlin veers towards attention-seeking on social media, occasionally trolling controversy, like making fun of people observing Lent. Usually, though, her Instagram posts are all about Rinna. Often in a bikini. Sometimes showing off her questionable dance moves. Lisa takes occasional heat for her swimwear posts, but she has a surprising ally who celebrates her bikini love. None other than fellow exhibitionist Brandi Glanville.
Apparently, Brandi Glanville is moving on from not being asked to replace Lisa Vanderpump on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills by starting a new YouTube channel in her bedroom.
On the latest edition of Drinking and Tweeting, the former RHOBH pot-stirrer gives her characteristically unfiltered take on The Real Housewives of Orange County and breaks down why so many ‘Wives’ marriages end in divorce — all while wearing a leopard-print nighty, heavily smeared eye makeup and a positively garish trucker hat.
Well, well, what do we have here? Does Kyle Richards have competition for the title of “Queen” on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Is the monarchy about to be overthrown? Let’s face it, the HBIC role is currently held by Kyle, but it seems to be by default. After Lisa Vanderpump quit the show, Kyle was blessed with the queen moniker by Erika Jayne at the Season 9 reunion. However, not one but two new cast members joining the ladies may keep Kyle’s reign brief. Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke are locked in and about to join the wild ride of reality television. At least the newbies are coming on board at the same time, so they have that in common. Another trait they share is being friends with Lisa Rinna.
Ah Rinna, what would we do without you? We would miss your at-home spa treatments. We would suffer in the wake of losing your knee-slapping hilarity. And I would personally miss the occasional appearance of Harry Hamlin. If you recall, Lisa is also old school friends with Denise Richards. They have shared appearances on television shows and maybe a boyfriend as well. This could lead to an interesting dynamic heading into the 10th RHOBH season. Now that Lisa could have a “team”, what does that mean for Queen Kyle? Is there a new sheriff in town after all?
Gina Kirschenheiter has been having a terrible year. She went through a messy divorce from Matt Kirschenheiter. In February, Gina was arrested for a DUI, which she later pled guilty to. She has also missed some of her court dates. Matt was arrested for and later charged with domestic violence against her. It is clear on this season of the Real Housewives of Orange County that Gina is overwhelmed with her chaotic life.
OC friends like Emily Simpson have rallied around Gina. Her pain has even resulted in empathy from Shannon Beador, with whom she has had a frosty relationship. With all of Gina’s problems, she could probably use some good advice from someone who has been down a similar road. And who better–or worse–to give that advice than the messiest Housewife divorcee of all, former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville.
There was no winner in the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills drama. It seems like Season 9 will haunt us forever. It is literally more frightening than Kyle Richards’ new movie. The biggest losers in this game are the fans.
At the risk of sounding theatrical (who, me?), Camille Grammer Meyer rose from the burning ashes of rubble left behind after Dorit Kemsley’s dog was unceremoniously dumped at a
kill shelter. She battled the major players, but saved a special spot in her heart for Dorit. No one was off-limits, not even LVP. When she took on Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave at the finale party it was, dare I say, almost magical. So WHY isn’t Camille a full-time cast member next season? Kyle has denied it was her call that nixed Cammy, but guess who is pulling receipts? Now Real Housewives of Orange County star, Tamra Judge speaks up (why???), and Camille lets her have a dose of the 007.
