We witnessed a LOT this past season of Real Housewives of New City. Viewers are probably going to remember Bethenny Frankel’s Miami meltdown for years to come. Needless to say, this season delivered as always. Tinsley Mortimer finally coming to play was just the cherry on top.
Tinsley dealt with some loss this season. First, she broke up with boyfriend Scott Kluth, after dealing with all of the women inserting their opinions into her relationship. Then she lost Bambi. All the while dealing with a complicated relationship with her mother, Dale Mercer. Dale never seems to give Tinsley a break. I still shudder to think about all the things she said to Tinsely while she worked that carnival.
When I sat down to write this post, I decided to refresh my recollection regarding the messy divorce between Camille Meyer (f/k/a Camille Grammer) and Kelsey Grammer. First of all, Camille filed for divorce in 2010. I remember watching an episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in which Camille and Kelsey awkwardly rode to the Tony Awards together. They were in the back of a limo. Camille was wearing a red dress and looked amazing. Kelsey was mean to her. Soon after it came out that Kelsey was having an affair.
Anyway, to bring this story back to the really important point: how it relates to me… That episode aired 2009/10-ish? Which means I have wasted at least ten years of my life watching this drivel. Forget the Tony that Kelsey was speeding towards in the back of that limo a decade-ish ago! I deserve some sort of lifetime achievement award from Bravo. I will accept my award in the form of Skinnygirl products.
Brrrrrr, it’s cold in here y’all! I know we’re enjoying the benefits of summer, but one couple is in the midst of a cold snap. At their bank, that is. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Dorit Kemsley, has been defending herself a lot. Whether it was denying mistreating a dog, claiming to be a victim of Lisa Vanderpump’s personal vendetta, or disputing sketchy financial allegations from co-star Camille Grammer, Dorit has been busy.
Her problems with LVP were solved when the veteran cast member jumped ship. Lisa has ridden off into the sunset on a pink cloud of cash and rescue pups. Unfortunately, Lisa exiting stage left didn’t handle Dorit and PK’s many financial burdens. Dorit desperately tries to maintain an image of haute couture and class. Her accent could easily give the illusion she was raised in high society cliques of England, and not
Yonkers Connecticut. Now, despite the show that Dorit puts on, the facade is failing. It looks like she might have to answer for her husband’s legal troubles once and for all.
It was a rocky second season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. First, she tried to get in on puppy-gate manufactured drama fans never want to hear about again. Then, she single-handedly made Lisa Vanderpump an outsider when she accused her of being the Bobby Fischer of the whole thing. After she accomplished that mission, Teddi spent the rest of the season kissing Kyle Richards’ behind and annoying the daylights out of Camille Grammer with her accountability scheming.
Camille’s annoyance with Teddi could not have been clearer in the finale last night. Early on, Teddi accurately labeled Camille as “two-faced. Meanwhile, Camille accurately said Teddi is a “know-it-all-Teddi.” Camille also claimed Teddi was getting too big for her britches. Understatement of the day: these two women do not get along.
Lisa Vanderpump spent the first half of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 9 at odds with her costars. Then, she stopped filming and quit the show.
Camille Grammer continued to film and she continued to call out her costars and talk smack to anyone who would listen. Some fans praised her for saying what was on their minds. Others felt like she talked out of both sides of her mouth. Ultimately, she made the season interesting, whether you love her or hate her. Now, she has some fighting words for her costars.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills had tons of drama this season. We just didn’t get to see any of it because it was off camera. No one mentioned the lawsuit against Kyle Richards husband Mauricio Umansky for allegedly committing fraud. Or Erika Jayne’s husband Tom Girardi being sued for not repaying a loan.
grifter couple had several lawsuits. PK Kemsley was being sued by the Bellagio casino. Dorit Kemsley has a lawsuit against her and PK from someone who claimed to own part of their discount bin swimwear line. And no one said anything about it all season. That is, until the little hairs on the back of Camille Grammer’s neck stood up.
Lisa Vanderpump has suffered a series of losses in a short time. Her brother Mark passed away in April 2018. Most recently, she lost her mother, Jean Vanderpump in June. On top of this, LVP had to exit Real Housewives of Beverly Hills because of puppy-gate. When it rains it pours. Right now Lisa is in the middle of a hurricane.
In times like this, it’s important to receive support from the people in your life. So far, we know that Camille Grammer has publicly shared support. Even forever nemesis Brandi Glanville has shared her condolences with LVP on Twitter. Fans haven’t seen other current or past Housewives reach out to Lisa. Apparently, it’s our business.
