Well here’s some good news in the Land of Litigation, also known as Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It’s no secret most of the cast have been caught up in heavy financial issues. Kyle Richards’ husband Mauricio Umansky is currently under siege in a $32 million case over a Malibu mansion. Dorit and PK Kemsley were under the gun as well. They had several issues to contend with, including a lawsuit over Dorit’s swimwear line and an unpaid debt of PK’s from 2011. No one was more surprised than us when both of those cases were recently settled.
Erika Jayne’s husband has also seen his fair share of court cases. Not because he is an attorney, but because he owed someone money too. In January, Tom Girardi was slapped with a $15 million lawsuit on the grounds of using funds to maintain a lavish lifestyle. Although Tom denied these claims, his wife has been pretty vocal about how much cash it takes to put her together every day. In July that case was reportedly settled. Now there might be some light at the end of the tunnel for Erika and
her glam squad Tom. Apparently Tom has further made good on paying back funds, which is great, but they aren’t out of the woods quite yet. Hang in there, Mikey!
Well, pop some champs and put your phones on do not disturb. This is the news you’ve been waiting for! Viewers suffered, along with Dorit Kemsley and her husband PK, over their financial issues. The stars of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: How Do You Plead? have been getting hit from all sides in court. As we watched PK and Dorit deflect any troubles with their wallet, the topic was suspiciously kept from RHOBH viewers. That is until Camille Grammer Meyer decided to spice things up. What followed was an endless tirade of denial, and some might say, delusions of grandeur. A man named Nicos Kirzis loaned PK about $1.2 million, and PK failed to repay the debt.
Dorit also had another problem. A former “partner” in her Beverly Beach
definitely not Encino by Dorit swimwear collection was suing her as well. Ryan Horne sued Dorit over ownership of the line. Ryan claimed he made a deal with Dorit and PK in 2017 to produce bathing suits, along with owning a third of the business. You might remember a nice lady publicly attacking Dorit over this matter when the cast was on a relaxing Bahamas trip. Now my friends, it is my pleasure to let you know, Dorit and PK are no longer on the run clipping coupons. In a fantastic new twist, they have… paid their bills?
Jesus, please come take the wheel and drive this woman in the direction of reality. Dorit Kemsley, Encino resident and star of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Got A Dollar? is speaking about the financial issues that trouble her and husband, PK Kemsley. Quite frankly, what else is she going to talk about? The new house she is renting? We have reached the “bless your heart” part of Dorit and PK’s financial woes, and I might actually start feeling sorry for them. Eventually. Kind of. Eh, not so much.
As you know, Dorit and PK are waist-deep in a court battle with Nicos Kirzis over a meager $1.2 million. I mean come on, Dorit and PK are upstanding citizens. If they really owed the money, they would pay it! After all, they are rich! It began innocently enough. PK was loaned some money. PK
gambled it away filed for bankruptcy. Now PK feels his debt has been cleared. Unfortunately for the lender, his wallet is still feeling a little light. Nicos wants his cash and he is determined to get it. Now, despite a pending lawsuit over Dorit’s bathing suit company, a boatload of tax debt, and the current legal battles courtesy of Nicos – Dorit says it’s all good! Because, of course, she is.
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.
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.
