The most recent
dud of a season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills really made me miss the early days of the show. Namely, all the drama and extraness that the OG cast, particularly Lisa Vanderpump, brought to the table. The back and forth banter with her old BFF Kyle Richards. All of the swans and puppies who were treated like spoiled children. And of course, all of LVP’s dry British shade.
LVP recently returned to Watch What Happens Live to promote her new show, Overserved With Lisa Vanderpump, on E! network. And of course, she couldn’t make her return without throwing digs. at her former castmates.
By all accounts, next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will revolve around Erika Jayne. This is due in part because most of the other cast has settled the majority of their legal problems – looking at you Dorit and PK Kemsley! If nothing else, hopefully we can avoid any fabricated storylines that are only meant to distract viewers from the real battles no one wants to talk about.
It goes without saying Erika has a huge job in front of her. After years of ALLEGEDLY allowing her estranged husband to deposit stolen money into her corporate account, now she has to act like she knew nothing about it. Erika will also face the challenge of playing the poor divorcee who is ravaged by her ex-husband’s deceit and infidelity. I wonder if she called Eileen Davidson for some tips. The streets are saying Erika has the full support of her cast mates during her
performance trying times, but apparently Sutton Stracke is not playing along.
How do you solve a problem like Mary Cosby? That was the main question running through my mind after Part 2 of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City reunion. Honestly though, has any Housewife in history ever made such blatantly problematic statements as Mary did in this episode? I almost don’t even know where to start digging in, to be honest. Nothing about any of it was OK or, frankly, made very much sense at all.
And that’s not all! During Part 2, there were jaw-dropping revelations, new nicknames, an epic walk-off, and even a surprise cameo by Lisa Rinna via text. (Turns out, like the rest of the Housewives universe, she’s a major fan of the RHOSLC ladies. That’s called having taste. Just ask Rihanna. As Mary pointed out repeatedly during the episode, we have a lot of cards to get through, so let’s jump in, shall we?
It’s lights out for Teddi Mellencamp! But the gloves are still coming off in the wake of her firing from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It’s true, fans have rejoiced when they heard the news.
But despite Teddi being known for being a complete snooze, it looks like she’s perked up since she got the axe. Where was that Teddi on the show?
Does the drama ever end in Beverly Hills? Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans learned that Denise Richards quit the show after alum Brandi Glanville told the world that she and Denise hooked up. Denise denied the allegations, and also denied having an open marriage with her husband, Aaron Phypers.
In a refreshing change of pace, Teddi Mellencamp admitted to the world that she was actually fired from RHOBH. Viewers know that “OG” Kyle Richards and Teddi are besties that are attached at the hip. Well, when Teddi isn’t hanging out in her father’s shadow.
Season 10 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills may be over, but the drama certainly isn’t! Sadly, we didn’t see very much of Camille Grammer this season.
But don’t worry about Camille. She is spending her time calling out RHOBH’s
possibly co-dependent besties Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp. In the past, Teddi had called Camille two-faced. Camille referred to Teddi and Kyle’s close friendship as “creepy.” It might not seem creepy if Kyle could admit that she treats Teddi differently than her other co-stars.
It would be a complete shock if Brandi Glanville got her diamond back on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. How does that old saying go? Don’t buy the cow if you can get the milk for free. Why would Bravo shell out a full-time paycheck, or even a part-time paycheck, when they could milk the Brandi drama from a couple guest appearances?
Oh, and let’s not forget the fact that Denise Richards left the show. Now, there’s really no reason to bring back Brandi in a greater capacity. Brandi even said that Denise “won” and “f*cked” her again since Brandi probably won’t become a Real Housewife without Denise around. Yet, now, a few days later, Brandi is denying that she used Denise for a reality TV comeback. Girl, we all see right through that. Yes, we all see Denise lied many times over, but that doesn’t mean we are siding with you and your inconsiderate plot to out a married woman on television.
I know the women of the modern-day Real Housewives of Beverly Hills would have you think that “bringing children into it” is as dramatic as it gets. But do you remember how this franchise got started? Shit was dark. Camille Grammer literally outted Taylor Armstrong’s domestic abuse story to the world. Mostly because Taylor was putting all the other Housewives in a very sticky situation. Then, season 2 ended with Russell Armstrong’s suicide. It was…a lot.
Since that time, Taylor has been on Couple’s Therapy with her new man, been remarried, and still continues to share her opinions on the cast like 7 seasons later. Hey. She worked hard for that zip code, baby.
