Bless her damn heart. Brandi Glanville still doesn’t have a diamond. After slapping Lisa Vanderpump and causing multiple controversies on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Brandi found herself out of a job. The second she received a #pinkslipbybravo, Brandi started a campaign to try and get her gig back. Always finding herself in rather questionable situations, it seemed Brandi’s only shot was to create drama with people still actively employed on the show.
Most of the cast treated Brandi like a pariah, until they needed her for something. That “something” was a scandalous storyline with Denise Richards to pump up the drama on an otherwise lame season. In an attempt to throw the scent off the alleged affair with Brandi, Denise implied Brandi hooked up with yet another cast member. While we still don’t know if that is a fact, what we do know is it wasn’t Kim Richards. Thank God.
Because, of course she did. Erika Jayne is no fool. She’s an enigma, wrapped in a riddle and Cartier panther rings. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills diva made the
expected terribly sad announcement that her 20+ year arrangement marriage to Tom Girardi is dunzo. The term “relationship goals” took a nosedive when the news was released, if these two crazy kids couldn’t make it – how can mere mortals find their fairy tale romance?
The demise of such a union not only puts a damper on the “happily ever after” theory, it also raises some questions. Big Daddy is a famous and highly regarded attorney who has been suffering from
fraud numerous charges of creative accounting. At this point, even PK Kemsley is looking at Tom with a heavy side-eye. But still, 20 years is a lifetime in marriage years and Tom has provided a nice existence for Erika. It looks like Tom’s providing isn’t quite done yet. Erika has requested privacy during these trying times, now we find out she has also requested spousal support.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Denise Richards announced in September that she was exiting the show. She had a pretty rough season. RHOBH viewers saw Brandi Glanville allege that she had a sexual liaison with Denise. Denise, whose husband Aaron Phypers was annoying all season, denied the hookup.
The accusations divided the cast, and “OG” Kyle Richards sided with Brandi. But that wasn’t Kyle’s only issue with Denise. Kyle called out Denise for not engaging with her fellow Housewives and for walking away repeatedly. Denise did not want to discuss these hookup allegations on camera, but Kyle and her bestie Teddi Mellencamp would not be denied.
When Denise Richards left Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Garcelle Beauvais seemed genuinely sad to say goodbye to filming with her friend of many years. In contrast, Erika Jayne, Lisa Rinna, and Teddi Mellencamp joked about her departure with memes and Instagram Stories dissing her.
They already got a lot of flack for acting like they were the “Mean Girls of Beverly Hills,” so the memes didn’t help that perception. Then again, this fanbase in particular is just so vocal and whoever liked them before (or didn’t like them before) isn’t going to be swayed by a meme.
Speculation continues to surround the Real Housewives of
Glendale Beverly Hills. To be clear, this franchise has been suffering. A virulent strain of plague struck some of the ladies. The World Health Organization has labeled it, Myhusbandhascommittedfrauditis. Sadly, the recovery time is rather slow. The infection manifests itself in creating diversions in an attempt to hide what’s really happening with your wallet.
As a result, the cast has had some shake ups. Who is coming in? Are any more going out? Will Kyle Richards keep her bangs? It looks like some of our questions have finally been answered. There is new blood coming in, but it appears no one else is leaving. We have no official word that anyone else was #firedbybravo and according to Lisa Rinna and Erika Jayne, they are ready to get back in the game.
Vanderpump Rules was once the best show on Bravo. Of course, THAT’S MY OPINION!!! (Trademark Tamra Judge). But seriously, it was! Who would have thought following hot Survers around a sexy unique restaurant would have been a good idea? Lisa Vanderpump – that’s who. The woman is some sort of Bobby Fischer genius reality TV Svengali.
LVP didn’t write the whole story, but she knew Scheana Marie’s affair with Brandi Glanville’s D-List ex-husband, Eddie Cibrian, would be the crossover of crossovers. Season after season the Pump Rules cast never stopped surprising us with their awful misdeeds and sometimes instant confessions. The content was wild and entertaining. But under the surface were some harsh truths and finally, this year, there was a reckoning. Day one stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired for racist actions. Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were fired for using racial slurs. Now that the “reality” of these personas has been exposed, where does it go from here?
It looks like Kyle Richard’s new
victim future BFF might have been revealed! As you know, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has available job openings. Kyle’s sister Kathy Hilton could show up as a friend. Some may think this is a feather in Kyle’s cap, but she tends to have contentious relationships with her siblings. I wouldn’t be surprised if Kathy brings some sparks. Poor Brandi Glanville remains tethered to her phone, waiting for the call that will probably never come, as usual.
Lots of viewers want Sutton Stracke to return as a fulltime cast member, which would be great. Unfortunately, her ex doesn’t want their kids to be filmed and that presents a problem. So we still have two slots to fill before production begins. Well, it appears part of our wait might be over. Word on the street is, Crystal Kung Minkoff has decided to volunteer as tribute for the Beverly Hills version of the Hunger Games. I hope she’s ready to play.
You never know what’s going to happen when you give Brandi Glanville a mic. Andy Cohen now knows that better than anyone. She put him in the hot seat on the latest episode of her podcast, and it did not disappoint. Naturally, they discussed RHOBH and Denise Richards‘ exit after two seasons. Brandi is still miffed that she has no real opening to get back on the show with Denise gone.
However, it was the topic of Real Housewives of Orange County that caught Andy off guard. He wasn’t at all expecting the bomb Brandi was about to drop on him. As most people know by now, Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson will NOT be back for the new season. If you ask Brandi, they might think it has something to do with their age. Down the rabbit hole we go.
