The times are certainly changing on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Lisa Vanderpump quit the show and skipped the reunion. The “puppy gate” scandal spelled the death knell of the longtime friendship between Kyle Richards and Lisa. In case you have been living under a rock, here is a quick update. Dorit Kemsley adopted a dog from Vanderpump Dogs, and the dog nipped her husband PK Kemsley and their children. Rather than return the puppy like she was required to in the adoption contract, Dorit re-homed poor Lucy Lucy Apple Juice. Lucy eventually wound up in a kill shelter. Perhaps Dorit should have re-homed PK instead?
When an article about Dorit’s actions hits the tabloids, Lisa was blamed for leaking the story. Kyle went to Villa Rosa to tell Lisa that all the Beverly Hills Housewives believed that Lisa leaked the story and that she is a liar. The terrible argument between Lisa, Kyle, and Lisa’s husband Ken Todd resulted in Kyle being banned from Villa Rosa. “Goodbye Kyle!” Ken bellowed as Kyle was told to leave the premises. She is lucky that Hanky and Panky didn’t try to avenge their owner.
Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is quickly going to the dogs. And if you’re keeping score, it’s Lisa Vanderpump, the queen of Vanderpump Rules and sometimes MVP of the 90210, and Lucy versus everyone else so far. Lucy made her TV debut during the RHOBH premiere episode. Dorit Kemsley and her husband PK Kemsley adopted her. Unfortunately, Lucy ended up back in a shelter before being rescued again by Vanderpump Dog Foundation.
#DogGate is a scandal that Dorit and PK would have preferred to keep private. Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and Kyle Richards were dragged into #DogGate in the season’s opener when the ladies visited the adoption center and heard about Lucy’s ordeal from Lisa. Teddi subsequently admitted in a confessional that she already knew about Lucy’s ordeal courtesy of a Vanderpump Dog Foundation employee.
Do you sweat the small stuff? What about a 15 MILLION DOLLAR lawsuit? That might make you and I relocate to Siberia, but not Erika Jayne. Thomas Girardi, the husband of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, is currently on the hook for unpaid loans.
In January, Tom caught a case filed by the lender, Law Finance Group. The dispute alleged Tom used a $15 million dollar loan to fund his lavish lifestyle instead of supporting his law firm, Girardi Keese. What does this mean for our very XXPEN$IVE star? According to Erika, it’s business as usual.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 9 is already crazy, and it has only just begun! Will we ever know the truth about when (and how) Lucy, Dorit Kemsley and PK Kemsley’s adopted pup from Vanderpump Dog Foundation, landed in a shelter? Lisa Vanderpump came to Dorit’s defense, much to Kyle Richards’ dismay. Kyle felt that she is held to a different standard than Dorit and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. Lisa needled Kyle about missing the Daily Mail party at new bar TomTom, but was fine with Dorit allegedly
abandoning re-homing poor Lucy. And it looks like Lucy is already more popular with viewers than Dorit this season!
During RHOBH’s premiere, fans were treated to part of the fiery argument between Kyle, Lisa, and Lisa’s husband, Ken Todd. That fight resulted in Kyle being told to leave Villa Rosa. That was tough to watch, and we still don’t know the exact cause of the rift.
Now that Dorit Kemsley has one season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills under her belt, she might as well capitalize on the show’s exposure by launching her own products during her second season. PK Kemsley’s management fees from Boy George can’t solely fund that glam squad.
Before Dorit became a Housewife she was a swimwear designer and now she’s back at it with a new line. We all saw that business meeting (before she was late for drinks with Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave) where she proclaimed that “red is having a moment” right now. Apparently it wasn’t that big of a moment since the line is lacking some bright, red swimwear at the moment. Nevertheless, she does have some pieces inspired by her time on the show.
