It appears that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills isn’t done with its cast shake-up. Lisa Vanderpump quit the show after she was accused of leaking the story about Dorit Kemsley and the “puppy gate” scandal to a tabloid. The fact that it was Lisa’s longtime friend Kyle Richards that leveled the accusations made it even worse. Lisa also suffered the death of her brother, and more recently, her mother’s death.
To fill the void, two new Housewives have been announced. Actress Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke will be full-time Housewives for Season 10. Lisa Rinna, Denise Richards, Dorit, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, and Erika Jayne will all be back. But one long-time part of the franchise, Camille Grammer, will not be returning.
There are a lot of changes coming to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in Season 10. Let’s admit that the franchise needs a facelift. (Ha!) Lisa Vanderpump jumped ship for good after dealing with the trauma of her brother’s unexpected death, and the messy “puppy gate” drama. Thanks again, Dorit Kemsley, for causing this whole nightmare in the first place by not returning your puppy to Vanderpump dogs.
Lisa’s epic fight with former bestie Kyle Richards at Villa Rosa destroyed their friendship, and sealed Lisa’s decision. Now Kyle is the Queen of Beverly Hills Housewives—for the moment. But with two new faces joining next season, Kyle may be worried about her crown.
Denise Richards is plowing full steam ahead into Season 10 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Her induction proved to be memorable. The actress fought wildfires, got married, and watched a legend leave the fold. Somehow Denise managed to stay above the fray of #puppygate and maintain positive relationships with her co-stars. Denise opened up about her turbulent life and maybe shared one too many details about husband Aaron Phypers. I think viewers and Aaron would agree we already have plenty of info on his dong. That said, it’s a refreshing change from hearing about PK Kemsley’s diabetes or
anything to do with Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave’s job.
So what is the newlywed going to bring us next year? As far as we know, she won’t be joining the carpool to court with Dorit Kemsley and Erika Jayne. Filming recently began on a new beginning for the Real Housewives of The Valley With Questionable Views. As fans of the franchise know, if you aren’t one and done, you need to shine to keep that diamond. Now Denise talks about new additions and moving forward. Ding, ding, round two for Denise has officially begun.
Wigs, weaves, and extensions. Much like an American Express card, you never leave home without it. Such is the case for experienced hair-wearer, NeNe Leakes. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star has treated us to a variety of different coiffes over the years. Great hair has almost become the new great bag in the land of accessorizing. Many Housewives have made their hair part of their overall identity. Dorit Kemsley never wears the same hair twice. Erika Jayne has a team dedicated to changing and styling her adhered locks.
Some might argue the person most identified with a collection of fake tresses could be Kim Zolciak-Biermann. Not only does Kim name her wigs, years ago NeNe famously yelled, “Bye, wig!” during an argument with her former friend. After that epic dismissal, Kim’s name became synonymous with the word. Years after making fun of Kim for her long, attached fibers, NeNe has been sporting flowing waves of blonde hair. Now she has a new gig, promoting a company dedicated to keeping your mane in check. But NeNe is finding out, new gigs are great until old clapbacks return to haunt her.
Dorit and PK Kemsley need a break, and it looks like they might have gotten one. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has had quite a year. After losing a dog in the worst adoption ever, Dorit also lost a good friend. In the midst of her personal drama, Dorit and PK were suffering financial drama as well.
Encino Beverly Beach by Dorit was under scrutiny from Dorit’s business partner. PK may or may not have had an emotional affair with some gambling tables. As Dorit’s relationships faltered, so did her bank account.
In an effort to
keep PK’s legs from being broken control their spending, Dorit and PK made the decision to unload Sam Nazarian’s their mansion in Beverly Hills. An open house, featured on Million Dollar Listing LA in January 2019 lead to a sobering update at the end of the episode. Two weeks after the event, Dorit and PK were robbed. They were among a slew of celebrities targeted by bougie thieves. Now, on the heels of moving into another rental home, Dorit and PK are breathing a sigh of relief that someone might be going to jail – and it isn’t them.
Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was a SNOOZE. I never want to hear the term “puppygate” again. The women made the entire season about dog drama when everything else in their lives was going to crap. Dorit Kemsley and Erika Girardi were both dealing with financial issues, yet they were barely talked about. Denise Richards and Camille Grammer lost homes in a serious fire. Yet, we only got one episode dedicated to the real-life tragedy. Lisa Rinna’s daughter struggled with an eating disorder and we saw one awkward dinner. Kyle Richards had zero problems other than self-induced anxiety. However, we saw none of these things manifest in a real way on RHOBH.
Instead we were treated to Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave’s accountability scheming, a Lisa Vanderpump-less season, and lots of costume changes with zero substance. Here’s hoping these women learn from watching this season that they need to let the Beverly Hills façade come down a bit for the sake of interesting content. It doesn’t seem that will happen though.
OH DORIT! We’re gathered here today, not to mourn, but to celebrate what once was. Dorit Kemsley fell into our laps on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills amid a flurry of strange accents and purchased hair. Dorit and husband PK wowed viewers with their fancy cars and upscale home. Their flashy European lifestyle and famous
30 years ago houseguests gave fans a glimpse into their jetset existence. Friends of legitimately rich Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd, the couple threw lavish parties, had designer wardrobes, and shared lessons in stirring the pot.
Then things got kind of sketchy. A slight hum on the rumor mill about the state of PK’s checkbook turned into a roar once his debt reached the million dollar mark. Gasp! How could this be? Dorit drives a rose-gold Bentley! As fear turned to reality, Dorit and PK did the only thing they could to throw the media off the scent of their
negative account balance financial issues. Let’s replace one scandal with an even bigger scandal! Legend has it, this is how #puppygate was born… And now, despite the denials and facade… The hours of deflecting and legal bills increasing… Now we’ve reached the denouement. Friends, it’s with a heavy heart I give you this news. Dorit and PK, once the flashiest new additions to the RHOBH family, did not actually purchase their new house. Let’s bow our heads and chuckle to ourselves offer thoughts and prayers.
Lisa Vanderpump managed to be one of the few members of the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills
who lives in Beverly Hills not involved with a lawsuit. After a season of feeling bullied and blamed, Lisa isn’t dealing with the show at all anymore. As much as Lisa’s fanbase will miss her, the departure was probably for the best. To secure your spot, you have to maintain an image. Lisa is not a D-list celeb, there just wasn’t a lot of purpose for her to continue RHOBH.
Lisa will still film Vanderpump Rules and continue running her fleet of restaurants. Her new Vanderpump Cocktail Garden in Las Vegas is getting a lot of attention. Of course we’ll return to Tom Tom once Pump Rules begins it’s new season. Then we vested favorites, Villa Blanca and SUR. You remember the old saying about her two establishments, “Villa Blanca is where you take your wife, and SUR is where you take your mistress.” Now, according to recently learned reports, you might take your mistress to SUR, but take some Pepto with you.
