We are officially approaching the post-Lisa Vanderpump era on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Unofficially, we know how it feels to have a Lisa-free show since she dipped out of Season 9 mid-filming, skipped the reunion, and announced that she quit to the media instead of telling Andy Cohen.
Aside from Lisa’s exit, fans will be deprived of Camille Grammer and her pot stirring, which she blamed on Kyle Richards. Without the two of them, we are left with a
boring show full of “best friends” with an affinity for self-promotion. Enter, Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke. They both joined RHOBH for Season 10, which is a tough task in general, and following LVP’s exit.
Tamra Judge just cannot seem to stop talking about Bethenny Frankel.
In a recent interview with E! News, the reigning Real Housewives of Orange County veteran weighed in once again on Bethenny leaving The Real Housewives of New York City days before filming began on Season 12.
You don’t know what you have until it’s gone, right? At least that’s how I feel about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Eileen Davidson. She didn’t have the most exciting storylines when she was on RHOBH, but I can’t help missing her perspective during some lackluster seasons.
At least Eileen is still keeping up with the show and its latest storylines. On last night’s Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen asked Eileen for opinions on the RHOBH hot topics. And, yes, he started with puppygate. The storyline that will never end.
When former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Camille Grammer Meyer came onto the reality television scene, she was married to Kelsey Grammer. The couple shares two children and a long history of a belligerent legal battle. It actually became difficult to watch Season 1 as Camille discovered the extent of Kelsey’s not affair with another woman. In July 2010, she filed for divorce. Camille sought primary physical custody of their children, along with child support and alimony. She suffered in the wake of public humiliation as well as losing her husband to another woman. To make matters worse, it appeared Kelsey was taking a cowardly route by only communicating with Camille via their attorneys.
It was a very long road for Camille, though her wallet seemed to come out on top in the divorce. By Season 2 of RHOBH, Camille’s past prickly persona seemed to mellow as she began her new life as a single mother. Throughout being treated for cancer, and a violent domestic dispute, the two never spoke. More recently, after the loss of Camille’s home in the Woolsey Fires, Camille shared Kelsey did not reach out. With both parties being guilty of defamation over the years, some new developments have emerged. Camille’s stormy relationship with her ex might finally see a break in the clouds.
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?
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.
The war of words rages on between Kyle Richards and Camille Grammer.
Backstage at the launch of her new fashion line during New York Fashion Week, Kyle once again denied that she’s the reason Camille isn’t returning for Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Andy Cohen is finally back from vacation and ready to spill the tea!
Earlier this week, the Bravo boss returned to the airwaves with his SiriusXM show, Andy Cohen Live on Radio Andy to comment on the casting of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newbies Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke.
