Lisa does deign to grace Denise Richards with her presence, but is disappointed when Denise chooses to use their time together to mediate between Lisa and the group. Denise believes her acrimonious divorce from Charlie Sheen has taught her a a lot about compromise, but Kyle Richards and Dorit Kemsley have their doubts and don’t believe there’s a chance in hell that Denise can make LVP see their perspective!
This week’s episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills offered 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 Richards and 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.
Viewers knew Season 9 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was going to be a rough one for Lisa Vanderpump. Before it even began, Lisa was absent from group photos. Then no one from the cast attended the Vanderpump Dogs Gala.
Ten episodes into the season also known as “#puppygate,” we’ve seen for ourselves how things have gone from bad to worse between Lisa and her costars. It culminated in the infamous showdown at Villa Rosa with Kyle Richards. An episode followed by one in which Camille Grammer made fun of Lisa’s teeth and breath at an outing with the other ladies .
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.
This puppygate storyline on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has infiltrated many Bravo shows. Well, not the shows themselves, but the cast members have shared their opinions. Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder and Lala Kent shared their opinions on who is at fault. Their costar Scheana Marie even said that she has empathy for Kyle Richards following that fight with Lisa Vanderpump at Villa Rosa. Kyle blamed Lisa for leaking the story about Dorit Kemsley’s failed dog adoption. In
Shahs of Sunset star Mercedes “MJ” Javid went public with her stance on the storyline. She is a very avid member of Team Vanderpump. Now, Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel is sharing her two cents, which is very interesting since she has been friends with Kyle and Lisa Rinna for decades.
This puppygate storyline on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has viewers divided. Are you Team Lisa Vanderpump? Team Everyone Else? Or are you just ready to move on to the next storyline? I fall in that last category.
Nevertheless, puppygate is what we have to talk about right now. Even Shahs of Sunset star Mercedes “MJ” Javid can’t help voicing her opinion. Especially after Ken Todd yelled “Goodbye Kyle” when he was kicking Kyle 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 Vanderpump and 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?
