Well, friends, it is that time again. It is time to start speculating over who will be staying, leaving, or joining the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast. “OG” Housewife Lisa Vanderpump ditched the Season 9 reunion, and quit the show, in the aftermath of “puppy gate.” I think it is fair to say that after last season, most viewers would like to see a cast shake-up.
Lisa Rinna was one of the stars who celebrated the fact that RHOBH would be down one Vanderpump. Rinna joined the show in Season 5 along with her bestie, fellow soap actress Eileen Davidson. Rinna has never been afraid to showcase her life for the cameras. Viewers learned that Rinna’s husband, Harry Hamlin, enjoys disappearing into the wilderness alone for fun. Rinna and Harry’s daughter, Amelia Gray, discussed her battle with anorexia on the show. That was truly an emotional moment.
We are back with Instagram Roundup! This time we are trying it out on a monthly basis with a look back of the most interesting photos from this past month.
Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder shared engagement photos with new fiancé Beau Clark. The two them along with other cast members went to Vegas for Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz’s legal marriage ceremony. Yes, in case you weren’t aware, it wasn’t legal the first time they tied the knot, so they had to do it again.
We need some new ladies on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills… desperately. Tori Spelling has made it no secret that she’s down to join the show. She’s mentioned it every time she’s had the chance. Unfortunately for Tori, she was never actually asked. And she is both “sad” and “offended” about it.
Unlike the current cast members, Tori has no problem talking about her financial difficulties… or any other personal problems. Is she the hero we didn’t know we needed? The jury is out on that one, but Erika Jayne recently weighed in on the idea.
While the last Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season had more drama than the previous couple, it’s not as if there was a bevy of storylines- human storylines. I’m not even going to get into the Lucy drama that managed to eclipse the season.
However, new Housewife Denise Richards was a pleasure to watch. She could have given us more drama. That super random reunion tension with Camille Grammer doesn’t count since it made zero sense to me. She had some post-show social media beef with Lisa Vanderpump and John Sessa. However, for the most part, she provided some much-needed comic relief and a break from the glam squads. A casting change is needed. LVP is out. No one else wants to talk about anything remotely interesting. Lawsuits, plastic surgery, and faux finances are not on the table. We need a cast shake up. So will Denise be a one and done? Or will she return (hopefully with a bunch of new Housewives)?
What’s going on with Kim Richards? We haven’t heard from the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star lately. With the drama surrounding sister, Kyle, and Lisa Vanderpump, there has been little focus on Kim and her personal struggles. We didn’t see much of Kimbo in Season 11, though she did show to Kyle’s birthday event for her daughter. Viewers recall Kim’s
attempts to avoid a run-in with Lisa Rinna. Poor Lisa still can’t quit the Blue Bunny legacy. Kim and the rest of us moved on about three years ago… But Kim looked great, appeared to be in good health. She didn’t seem too bothered, until she was lectured on the finer points of forgiveness by Denise Richards.
It seems Kim had moved on. She is the grandmother to two and despite a pending lawsuit involving a ghost writer, Kim has been somewhat absent from the media. Recently, Kyle praised RHOBH for “saving Kim’s life“. She credits the show for holding Kim accountable for her actions and unable to “get away from anything”. This might be true, but it’s worth noting Kim didn’t out her private strife with substance abuse. Kim’s battle with addiction was announced in an almost calculating way, during an on-camera feud with Kyle. Since then, Kim has been under a microscope. Her storyline blossomed with tales of a sketchy man, habitual tardiness, and a dog with a taste for blood. After five seasons, Kim stopped filming to regain a solid hold of her life. As many do, Kim suffered a relapse and even had a brush with the law. Now new concerns for Kim have cropped up, and once again her family questions her well-being.
Camille Grammer has been front and center during Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She married David C. Meyer in Hawaii, and co-star Kyle Richards served as a bridesmaid. Viewers were able to see the wedding, and it was lovely. Lisa Rinna, Dorit Kemsley, and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave attended the nuptials.
But with Lisa Vanderpump skipping the wedding, Camille expressed her disappointment to the Beverly Hills ladies. Soon after, a magazine article professing how much Camille cares for LVP appeared, and the RHOBH cast was miffed. In fact, on the way to the airport, they dissed Camille’s special day. No one puts Camille in a corner, and she came out swinging!
Even though all of the full-time Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast members are on the outs with Lisa Vanderpump, the end of her relationship with Kyle Richards stings the most. They were the two remaining OG cast members. Now, Kyle is the sole original remaining (as a full-time cast member, anyway), with Erika Jayne crowning her as the “queen” of the cast during the Season 9 reunion.
Many fans (adamantly) took sides in the Lisa vs. Kyle feud. Meanwhile, others wanted them to get back to the fun times they use to have
teaming up against other cast members. Reunion host and Real Housewives executive producer Andy Cohen is rooting for a reconciliation and he thinks he know what it will take for them to get back on good terms.
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.
