Dorit Kemsley may be one of the newest additions on The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, but she seems to have learned the housewives diplomacy game quickly (Eden Sassoon, take note!). As evidence, her blog this week praises her allies and subtly shades her frenemies, yet doesn’t quite come out and accuse anyone of anything. Is Dorit playing fake politics? Or just playing it safe – and smart?
After apologizing for not blogging last week, Lisa launches into her thoughts on Rinna “owning it” this week. She begins, “Now let us begin to understand exactly what has transpired here as we delve into the complicated scenario that we have witnessed, the murky quagmire, where truth is scant on the ground.”
Eileen Davidson admits she was shocked when Lisa Rinna finally confided the truth to her on this week’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. But she stands by her belief that her ally never “lied” about the truth – she simply didn’t remember until producers showed her the tape. Now that she has come clean with Kim Richards about her comments that Kim was not totally sober and was potentially near death, Eileen thinks Rinna deserves a break.
Eileen jokes, “It was a week of caviar, cheesecake and coming clean!” Before breaking down Rinna’s confession in her blog, she takes a moment to gush about Erika Girardi’s acting skills. “Erika continues to prove her acting chops. I’ve seen her read a few times now, and she always crushes it. Vinny joked that he wanted to manage Erika…not so fast, Vin! I discovered her first!”
Now that she’s fessed up, Rinna says she’s DONE! She’s done talking about Kim, done with questioning her sobriety, and done with the “not remembering” shtick – let’s hope. Rinna claims, “Kim and I have finally made amends, owned up to what we have said and done to one another, and have made a mutual commitment to move away from the negativity once and for all.”
This week, Rinna points the finger at Kyle Richards for keeping the gossip train going – apparently, because she told her sister, Kim, what Rinna said about her. Also, because Rinna has no more people left to point fingers at. Ladies and gentlemen, The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills has entered a new dimension of circular logic: The Rinna Dimension. Come with me on a bumpy ride through her blog…
Thus, we’ve officially entered the ridiculous realm of alternative facts, possibly for good with these two.
Though Eileen was mercifully absent from this week’s episode, she has a lot to say about Rinna’slies situation. “I think this bears repeating: Lisa R. clearly did not remember what she’d said to Eden. There’s no reason to lie. Lisa R. knows she was on camera! Why would she put herself through this? The only explanation is that she did not remember. If she did, she would own it. That is who Lisa R. is, and we all know that about her by now. I am feeling for her in this moment. And, frankly, I’m feeling for Kim. I’m sorry she continues to be the topic of conversation.”
I don’t know, man. Eden Sassoon may be nuttier than a five-pound fruitcake, but she’s on the right side of the truth when it comes to Lisa Rinna’s latest accusations and deflections. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills newest addition claims that Rinna is suffering from “selective memory,” and she’s here to set the record straight.
But first, Eden takes a moment to praise her mom for talking her off the ledge. “Let’s start this blog post with the beautiful part of this episode…my mama. She is such a strong, beautiful woman, who so easily brings me back down to earth. It wasn’t always that way; we have worked really hard on our relationship. But now that we have such a strong friendship, I look to her for advice when I am overwhelmed, which I totally am at this moment.”
After arriving in Mexico at Mauricio and Kyle Richards’ vay-cay pad, Eileen abruptly got the sh*ts. But that didn’t stop her from playing fierce ally to Rinna, who was called out for her lies comments that were caught on camera. Eileen reflects, “Pardon the understatement of the year, but this is a very complicated situation! Watching the show the last couple weeks, Lisa Rinna’s comments about Kim Richards to Eden have been played many times. So much has been said about it. But, here’s the context I think we’re missing.”
