Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has finally come to an end. It felt like forever. Primarily because we got yet another one-story season. We’ve had panty-gate. Last year it was puppy-gate. This year it was cl*t-gate. Next year who knows what we’ll get, but it better not be a mean-girl pile on. Yeah, I said it. Kyle Richards is the Regina George of RHOBH– only not as iconic. Erika Jayne is totally a Karen, Lisa Rinna isRegina’s desperate mom, and Teddi Mellencamp is Gretchen Weiners, the friend everyone overlooks. Thankfully though Teddi got fired. Have fun berating people on 500 calories a day!
Dorit Kemsley and Garcelle Beauvais were the only two non-mean girls this season. Garcelle is such a loyal friend she even stated that if Denise Richards left, she would too. Now that Denise has left the building after two seasons, is Garcelle going to follow?
It wasn’t exactly shocking when Denise Richards announced her exit from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. After a pretty easy first season, her second round was anything but enjoyable.
Kyle Richards made fun of her personal appearance, multiple times. Lisa Rinna turned her back on their friendship of over 20 years. Erika Jayne and Teddi Mellencamp argued with Denise’s husband Aaron Phypers to avoid talking about their own lives (beyond promoting their business ventures). Dorit Kemsley and Garcelle Beauvais had Denise’s back, but it wasn’t enough for her to stay around. And, you know what, who could blame her?
If you haven’t binged Netflix’s Selling Sunset yet, what exactly have you been doing? How can I describe it? It’s sort of like if Million Dollar Listing and The Hills had a baby who loved to watch Vanderpump Rules. Interestingly, Scheana Shay has already publicly started shit with one of the stars from the show, Crishell Stause.
Selling Sunset features some of the hawtest and baddest bitches in real estate. There are cliques, the bosses have clear favorites, and the houses are TO DIE for. Some viewers compared the show to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Eh, for the most part, I don’t see that. There is, however, one baddie who stands above the rest. She deserves elevation to the highest rank in the reality TV world. A promotion to Housewife! And that is Christine Quinn.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers have watched the fall-out from alum Brandi Glanville’s claim that she had an alleged sexual tryst with Denise Richards. Brandi disclosed the information to Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp. Kim Richards, Kyle’s sister and Brandi’s friend, already knew about the incident.
Somehow, the other RHOBH Housewives managed to insert themselves in the drama, which is ridiculous because it had nothing whatsoever to do with them. But here we are.
Season 10 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was basically all about Denise Richards. I am sure that she really wishes that wasn’t the case. First her husband Aaron Phypers inserted himself into the drama. Then RHOBH alum Brandi Glanville dropped the bombshell that she allegedly hooked up with Denise.
Denise, of course, denied the rumors. She sent out cease and desist letters to Bravo and her co-stars. Denise also suffered from “shifting story syndrome,” and she repeatedly contradicted herself.
Even though she has zero actual involvement in Denise Richards‘ drama with Brandi Glanville, Erika Jayne was very offended by Denise 1. talking shit about the other cast members (which they all do) and 2. Denise refusing to admit to a hookup with Brandi.
This whole “Denise doesn’t show her whole life” thing was beaten to a pulp. And news flash: no one shows her whole life! Ever, not even on a reality show. It’s impossible to show every single thing. And it’s just rich that the most notoriously private Real Housewives cast members have the gall to call out anyone for not being open. What storyline did Erika have this season? Other than hopping on the Denise-bashing bandwagon? Oh, right: self promotion.
It’s very clear to me that Denise has lied on many occasions. However, that’s not my issue. The issue that many viewers have watching this show is that the punishment doled out to Denise doesn’t fit the “crime.” Somehow, no one on this show condemned each other for outing Denise, which is a shame.
This is it folks. We’ve finally reached the end of the road for this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The final part of the reunion also marks Denise Richards‘ last appearance as a housewife. The end of an era. It’s so that her friendship with Lisa Rinna ended up as a casualty in this reality war. The second half of the season was the ultimate did she or didn’t she regarding those Brandi Glanville hookup allegations.
Denise has used every tactic in the book this season to avoid taking accountability for her actions. She’s skipped events, made up fake family emergencies, and even used legal measures as a means of silence. Surely, someone who has nothing to hide wouldn’t jump through all of those hooks. Right? When you sign up to do a show like this, you know they’re going to show the good, the bad, and the hideous. This is Denise’s last stand. Let the fun begin!
Remember Kathryn Edwards? Along with Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud, Kathryn is part of the “one and done” crew from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Kathryn appeared on the show in 2016 and seemed to share much of her conflict with The Morally Corrupt Faye Resnick. Though she tried to play the game (don’t hate the game, just marry a player), she was benched after her freshman season. Let’s all take a moment and reflect on the juicy drama and great one-liners Kathryn gifted us with. Aaaaand we’re finished.
While Kathryn didn’t have the opportunity to strut her stuff for a second season, because, fired, she did learn a few things during her tenure on the show. Sometimes reality television isn’t pure in the “reality” sense of the word. You already know this if you have a working tv and access to any type of media device. Recently, Kathryn shared some insight on producer-driven drama in the Bravo universe and certain cast members
earning their check driving that producer-driven bus.
