This week’s episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsoffered a little bit of everything. An impractical designer car, Erika Jayne kneed in the head(!), an ugly political debate and the story of the courageous survival of Lisa Rinna’s mother Lois Rinna at the hands of a serial killer. And for good measure, surprise cameo appearances by Kim Richardsand Kathy Hilton. Whew! It seems like Bravo threw in everything but the kitchen sink. Only because they probably couldn’t salvage it from Lisa Vanderpump’s high end kitchen remodel!
One thing we did not see, however, was LVP interacting with the rest of the cast. She was a no show at Camille Grammer’s bridal shower and the rest of the ladies, of course, questioned her absence. These days, it seems that no one from the cast is in Camp Vanderpump. However, one former Housewife is showing her love for LVP and she isn’t shy about expressing her opinions about the rest of the cast, either.
Last night was the weirdest, most insanely random episode of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills ever! This is RHOBH without a common enemy to direct all their wrath and delusions onto. I dunno — I loved it!
Dorit Kemsley shows up in a redneck tuxedo to Denise Richards‘ house to drink double vodka tonics at 2 in the afternoon and talk motherhood. (Denise had water since she had to pick her daughter up from school) Ha! Motherhood was about 2% of their conversation the rest was all Lisa Vanderpump. Denise liked Dorit immediately when she met her, and found her very warm and kind. That’s Dorit’s ruse — everyone feels that way about her. Initially.
Denise counsels Hollywood neophyte Dorit about handling close friends betraying you to the tabloids. When Denise was going through her divorce she actually used to run sting operations on confidantes by sharing something with them to see if it would wind up in the press, and that was how she knew who was a true friend. Despite LVP ruining her reputation, eviscerating her belief in friends, and making her question all of humanity, Dorit still wants their friendship back. Denise believes that – with time – Dorit can eventually forgive her.
Pssst! Hey, did you know there is other stuff going on in the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills world that isn’t drilled into our minds filmed? Well, there is. And thankfully the words “puppy” and “gate” are not even uttered. Oops.
Nevertheless, puppygate is what we have to talk about right now. Even Shahs of Sunsetstar Mercedes “MJ” Javid can’t help voicing her opinion. Especially after Ken Toddyelled “Goodbye Kyle” when he was kickingKyle Richards out of Villa Rosa. Lisa Vanderpump fans initially used this hashtag to poke fun at Kyle. Then, Kyle tried to give it a different meaning by using it herself on social media. So what does MJ think of the whole mess?
Wasn’t last night’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills a great episode? Although last week’s dramatic fight between Lisa Vanderpumpand Kyle Richards still lingered in the air, it was nice to have a show that was a little more low-key. You can’t have high drama each week-or you would never appreciate it when the good stuff actually happens!
For the ladies, it was all about celebrating. Lisa was the guest of honor at her own birthday party, with Denise Richards as the only invited Housewife guest. Most of the other ladies were at a get together at Beauty & Essex for Denise’s recent wedding-a post bachelorette shower, if you will. And Lisa Rinna tried to do damage control regarding an insensitive tweet she sent out to LVP for her birthday. Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave believes that the tweet was all an innocent mistake-but was it?
Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has centered on Lucy Lucy Apple Juice. Dorit Kemsley and PK Kemsleyadopted the pup from Lisa Vanderpump’s dog rescue. After the dog nipped at the kids and PK, Dorit re-homed the pup. Poor Lucy ended up in a kill shelter. Dorit had previously returned a dog to Vanderpump Dogs, so she knew the drill. She also neglected to read the pesky contract that specified that a $5,000 fee was due if a dog was not returned to Lisa’s organization. Spoiler alert: The Kemsleys didn’t pay the fine, and probably lumped it in with their other debts. I hope that Lucy is chilling somewhere and just living her best life. She deserves it after this debacle.
The long-time friendship between LVP and former bestie Kyle Richards exploded when someone leaked the story about Lucy ending up at a shelter to a tabloid. All the Beverly Hills ladies, including Erika Jayne, believe that Lisa was responsible and trying to punish Dorit. And when Kyle took on the mission to confront LVP, she was tossed out of Villa Rosa by Lisa and her husband, Ken Todd. That scene was so uncomfortable to watch!
