Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was a SNOOZE. I never want to hear the term “puppygate” again. The women made the entire season about dog drama when everything else in their lives was going to crap. Dorit Kemsley and Erika Girardi were both dealing with financial issues, yet they were barely talked about. Denise Richards and Camille Grammer lost homes in a serious fire. Yet, we only got one episode dedicated to the real-life tragedy. Lisa Rinna’s daughter struggled with an eating disorder and we saw one awkward dinner. Kyle Richards had zero problems other than self-induced anxiety. However, we saw none of these things manifest in a real way on RHOBH.
Instead we were treated to Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave’s accountability scheming, a Lisa Vanderpump-less season, and lots of costume changes with zero substance. Here’s hoping these women learn from watching this season that they need to let the Beverly Hills façade come down a bit for the sake of interesting content. It doesn’t seem that will happen though.
