A puppy managed to undo one of the most solid friendships on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump’s friendship imploded after an infamous showdown over planted tabloid stories. An explosive episode followed by one where Camille Grammer, a former dental hygienist, made fun of LVP’s teeth and breath with fellow cast members.
It’s hardly a surprise that Lisa ditched filming with the cast after that. Although LVP did break her silence on social media to say that she’d rather work with pigs than her fellow Housewives. Time will tell if the rest of the season is watchable without LVP.
This week’s episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills offered a little bit of everything. An impractical designer car, Erika Jayne kneed in the head(!), an ugly political debate and the story of the courageous survival of Lisa Rinna’s mother Lois Rinna at the hands of a serial killer. And for good measure, surprise cameo appearances by Kim Richards and Kathy Hilton. Whew! It seems like Bravo threw in everything but the kitchen sink. Only because they probably couldn’t salvage it from Lisa Vanderpump’s high end kitchen remodel!
One thing we did not see, however, was LVP interacting with the rest of the cast. She was a no show at Camille Grammer’s bridal shower and the rest of the ladies, of course, questioned her absence. These days, it seems that no one from the cast is in Camp Vanderpump. However, one former Housewife is showing her love for LVP and she isn’t shy about expressing her opinions about the rest of the cast, either.
Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Brandi Glanville, is feeling ashamed. No, she isn’t having delayed remorse over slapping Lisa Vanderpump for no reason. And she isn’t reflecting on when she was photographed, how can I eloquently put this,
with her tampon string hanging out of her pants without properly checking herself in the restroom. This isn’t even about her juvenile social media antics regarding her ex-husband’s current wife.
Our Lady of Class and Sophistication is
whining defending herself over some brand new pics that have popped up. Hi Brandi, if you didn’t already know, the internet is a thing. And when you have been struggling to stay relevant on a reality television show, paparazzi tend to take your photo when you go out in public. She isn’t exactly new to the game. So what on earth could have sparked such a dramatic response from a person known for not giving any f*cks? WAIT FOR IT!
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has had one of the most interesting casts of any of the Housewife shows-from actual millionaires to poseurs and real-life actresses. Since the show began in 2010, 17 ladies have been cast as full-time Housewives. Two OG’s from Season 1 remain-Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump (we will see what happens after this season, though)! And snarky Camille Grammer has been either a Friend of or Guest on every season but one after leaving as a full-time Housewife after Season 2.
This season, two other former Housewives are coming back for at least one appearance. And they happen to be two of the most talked about-and polarizing-cast members of any of the Housewife shows-former child star Kim Richards and volatile, often-acts-like-a-child Brandi Glanville. And current cast member Erika Jayne recently shared her thoughts about the return of Kim and Brandi.
Gretchen Rossi has always been one of my favorite Housewives. The former Real Housewives of Orange County star had all the elements to make a good Housewife-beauty, side hustles, relationship drama and she was always able to place herself in the middle cast dust-ups. Most importantly-Gretchen’s very existence had the ability to make Tamra Judge’s head spin around in anger like she was a cast member in The Exorcist!
Orange County fans know that Gretchen and forever fiancé Slade Smiley struggled for years with infertility. Last year, they happily announced that they were expecting their first child. Gretchen has shared her pregnancy journey on social media, including lots of baby bump shots and pics from her gender reveal party in which she announced she was expecting a baby girl. Despite this, some social media followers are accusing Gretchen of trying to cover up her pregnancy.
GOODBYE KYLE! The fight between Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards still has us shook. The entire argument at Villa Rosa was disturbing to watch. Their longtime friendship is in shambles, and may never recover. It’s crazy to think that a little rescue dog
with the dumbest name ever came in between them like this. However, even though the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are Team Kyle, not everyone is.
Even though Lisa’s costars may not seem very loyal to her, one group of people owes Lisa EVERYTHING. The Vanderpump Rules cast is surely Team Lisa all the way on this right? Lisa went through hell with Brandi Glanville over her allegiance to Scheana Marie. Surely, Scheana is automatically on Lisa’s side no questions asked as a result. Right? It turns out that the longtime SURver might not see the situation so black and white.
In the early days of Vanderpump Rules, we met Scheana Shay. Back then she was known as the “homewrecker” who had naughty times with Brandi Glanville’s then-husband. But that was about five faces ago. Scheana went from burgeoning pop princess, to wife, and then back to
bunny boiling stalker single.
Viewers watched as her doomed marriage to Mike Shay fell apart amidst claims of substance abuse and living in Scheana’s shadow. During a tense conversation in the Season 5 reunion, Scheana obsessively checked her make-up while Shay was strung up for further public humiliation. It was relatively brutal to watch and many viewers didn’t blame Shay for
living Valley of the Dolls retreating into his own world. Scheana had already moved on and we haven’t heard much from Shay since then. After such a nasty and public falling out, could these two former lovebirds ever find peace and closure after such a long term relationship?
Denise Richards has been such a breath of fresh air for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She comes across real, genuine, and having no desire to put on a facade. Plus, it’s nice to see that she’s as confused about the dog drama as we are! However, just because Denise is genuine and authentic doesn’t mean her fellow Housewives are.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills struggle with authenticity. First you have Camille Grammer who very clearly changed personalities between seasons 1 and 2. Brandi Glanville says that Kyle Richards acts one way with Lisa Vanderpump in her life, and another way when they are apart. Most of the cast says LVP is secretly manipulative. Finally, Lisa Rinna openly said she was turning into the “nicest f***ing Lisa Rinna”
