Well, we made it through another season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It has been a rough one and I think I need my own vacation from this cast! Season 9 of my beloved RHOBH has been a bit exhausting. If I saw Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna or Dorit Kemsley on the streets of Beverly, I would probably ask them for a refund for the season. Cash or verified gift card only from Dorit!
As Lisa Vanderpump stopped filming with her co-stars, the other Housewives did not have much to do all season, other than drink, hide lawsuits, shamelessly promote their businesses and complain about LVP. Not much of interest happened until the reunion when Camille Grammer barreled in with guns blazing. She was especially miffed that Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave shaded her wedding. Now, Teddi is explaining her side of things. Whether we like it or not!
Denise Richards gave Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans some much-needed comic relief this season, but not much else. She told Camille Grammer to back off while she was wearing a fur coat and an Agency hat during the finale, but other than that, Denise had zero conflict this season.
Well, until the reunion. She and Camille randomly went at it. Camille said she didn’t like Denise and that she was boring this past season. Denise asked if Camille was “on something” during the taping. Then, Camille wondered if Denise was “on something” during a recent Watch What Happens Live appearance. In response, Denise took to Twitter to make a shocking claim about the RHOBH OG.
Just because Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has wrapped for the season it doesn’t mean legal troubles disappear! Dorit and PK Kemsley have been embroiled in a battle behind the scenes. But this isn’t their first trip to court for financial issues. For quite some time, the Bellagio Hotel and Casino was after PK for $3.6 million in unpaid debts. Fortunately, the Bellagio
called Fofty settled with the Kemsleys in May of this year.
That wasn’t the only case Dorit and PK were
hiding dealing with. Beverly Beach by Dorit was under scrutiny by Dorit’s business partner, Ryan Horne. He claimed 1/3 ownership of the swimwear company and sued Dorit for $205,000. Gosh, these two have been busy not paying people, BUT LET’S TALK ABOUT THE DOG. The monetary troubles don’t end there, my friends. PK also owes mad dollars to someone else. Nico Kirzis loaned the British producer $1.2 million about eight years ago. Despite filing for bankruptcy and moving to another country, the debt remained unpaid. In September, Dorit is expected to answer to the claims against them. Now a warning has been issued. If Dorit doesn’t show up to court, she could find herself the new fit model for LA County jumpsuits.
Brandi Glanville’s cameo on this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was SHOCKING. Brandi last made an appearance at the season 6 reunion. However, Denise Richards‘ arrival made way for her to reenter the fold. She didn’t play a huge role, but she had a lot to say about Lisa Vanderpump. Spoiler alert; none of it was positive.
Everyone was surprised at the reunion when Camille Grammer blamed Brandi for LVP’s reunion absence. Brandi took to Twitter to claim Camille was being told was to say by LVP. It’s difficult to know what to believe her. Why would Camille make that up? Why would Lisa even care if Brandi returned to the show since she quit? Thankfully, Lisa is setting the record straight about her thoughts on Brandi returning.
Oh friends, we have finally, finally said farewell to this interminable season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. And wow can I just say this show is in peril and I don’t like a single one of them! Part 3 of the reunion was largely a waste of time, so I’m going to spend this recap discussing the RHOBH in general.
There’s not much that can be said about this group except that the lack of awareness and (here comes Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave‘s favorite word!) accountability is astounding. Camille Grammer had it right when she hissed, “Hypocrisy at its finest!”
As the woman all all sat up there railing against Lisa Vanderpump for being manipulative and shielding parts of her life from the cameras, not a single one of them admitted to doing the same thing. So when Kyle Richards decided not to confront Dorit Kemsley about what really happened with Lucy, or confront Teddi about the inconsistencies in her stories and involvement, and instead completely deflected everything onto Lisa? Kyle wasn’t ‘manipulating’?
We have finally reached the end of the road with season 9 of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. The reunion concludes with part 3 tonight, and I still find it hilarious that, Camille Grammer, the person who caused the most drama this season isn’t even an official Housewife. What does that say about the status of this show with this cast? (FAIL)
Part 2 of the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion left off with Camille storming off the stage after accusing the women of a set-up. Following a pep talk from Andy Cohen an emotional Camille returns to the stage to confront her issues with Denise Richards. Denise lectures Camille for not thinking before she speaks and causing damage to her relationships with being thoughtless.
First rule of #puppygate is: you do not lie about #puppygate. Too little too late for Teddi MelLIEScamp Arroyave! The accountability coach had some trouble being accountable on the most recent season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. As Dorit Kemsley became the poster child for how not to adopt a dog, a series of events unfolded which resulted in the loss of Lisa Vanderpump. The cast seemed almost determined to make #puppygate a thing, though viewers were left bewildered. How is the person who ALLEGEDLY drops a puppy at a kill shelter the victim? Who leaked the story to the media? Most of all, why isn’t anyone mad at Dorit for dumping a dog?
As #puppygate wore on
our nerves, one thing remained clear. The RHOBH ladies were intent on finding fault at the hands of LVP. As Lisa filmed two shows, managed restaurants, maintained animal rescuing duties, and grieved the loss of her brother, she also had time to “bring down Dorit“. Amid a flutter of “proof” and damning evidence, Teddi was one of the first to throw a dagger at Lisa. With a typical 2nd season buzz of confidence, Teddster took it upon herself play a part in the #puppygate plan. In one memorable moment, Teddi even claimed she had never ever told a lie. The good news is, Teddi no longer has to take the heat for that comment. The bad news is, she was stone cold busted.
It was difficult to have high expectations going into the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion. We all knew that Lisa Vanderpump ditched the reunion, so what would the ladies have to talk about? As it turns out, plenty! Who knew that Camille Grammer would be the explosive ghost pepper hot sauce poured over a potentially bland reunion?
Of course, we all know Camille is outspoken and occasionally catty. But she is usually calm, cool and collected, carefully shooting her arrows with marksman-like precision. At the reunion, Camille has been angry, confrontational and unafraid to call it like she sees it. Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, Kyle Richards and Denise Richards have all been on her raging radar. Camille feels she has been unfairly targeted and is ready to defend herself.
