Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemsley, & Camille Grammer Share Opinions On Denise Richards Joining Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills; Denise Shares Her Initial Impressions Of The Cast

After the least eventful season in Real Housewives of Beverly Hills history, every single cast member was brought back for Season 9. That does not seem like the go-to tactic to restore the show to its former glory, but there is one new addition to the cast: Denise Richards.

As of this moment, there’s no word on Denise’s storyline, minus that surprise marriage. Let’s just hope that Denise ends up breathing some (much-needed) new life into this show. Beverly Hills vets Camille Grammer, Erika Jayne, and Dorit Kemsley shared their first impressions of Denise. The good news is that they all seem to love her, so hopefully the viewers do too. The bad news is that they all seem to love her, so hopefully the viewers aren’t bored. Again.

Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Cast Vacations In The Bahamas- Photos

How does Real Housewives of Beverly Hills bounce back after its worst season ever? By bringing back all of the same cast members and adding Denise Richards to the show, apparently.

Hopefully, the ladies step it up next season and restore the show to its former glory. It’s unclear what exactly is happening for Season 9, but one major plot point is clear: the ladies take a cast trip to the Bahamas.

Erika Jayne

Last season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Erika Girardi’s main story line was “writing” (i.e. promoting) her book. The season before that her pop star alter ego Erika Jayne was all about working on (i.e. promoting) her song “XXPEN$IVE.” What’s her career move to promote main story line this season? That has not been confirmed since they are currently filming, but there is a clear front-runner.

Erika just announced that she will be going on tour in five cities across the country. More likely than not, she will be preparing for the tour, auditioning backup dancers, rocking catsuits, and whatever else goes into a concert tour as her main promotional plug storyline next season.

Instagram Roundup

This week, your favorite reality TV stars were all about their love lives on Instagram.

Million Dollar Listing star Fredrik Eklund and his husband Derek Kaplan had an elaborate breakfast with their twin babies. Real Housewives of Potomac star Ashley Darby went rafting with her husband Michael Darby. Vanderpump Rules cast members James Kennedy and Raquel Leviss went to lunch with a friend. Terry Dubrow shared a selfie with is wife Heather Dubrow.

Teddi

Was Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave an exciting addition to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? No, but in her defense, she was a part of the worst season in the show’s history. Nevertheless, it does seem like she will be asked back for another round. After all, she does have beef with Dorit Kemsley, Erika Girardi, and presumably, Erika Girardi’s alter ego Erika Jayne.

She isn’t going to provide those meme-worthy moments, but she is definitely the “relatable” one in the cast. So will she return for a second season?

Dorit Kemsley Announces Limited Edition Swimsuit Collection

 

During the last season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Dorit Kemsley shared a behind-the-scenes look at the development of her swimwear line Beverly Beach by Dorit.

Just like the Housewives that came before her, Dorit used the show to promote her brand, but the line also gave the season a little bit of drama. That’s how dull Season 8 was, a bathing suit line actually caused some drama. Dorit blamed working on the swimwear line when she was late for lunch with Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. She “argued” with her husband PK Kemsley for changing the name of her line (which she ended up keeping). She invited the whole cast to her fashion show for the finale episode where Kyle Richards walked out after arguing with Lisa Vanderpump for not putting her in a magazine. Kyle also got frustrated with Erika Jayne for not standing up for her at this same fashion show. The icing on the cake was when Dorit named bathing suits after every cast member except for Teddi and Camille Grammer. Now there’s even more Beverly Beach by Dorit products in the works.

Camille Grammer

One of the few bright spots of the last Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season was the reemergence of Camille Grammer. Sure, she’s made cameo appearances throughout the years, but this time was different.

She was almost at Season 1 level of sass in response to Dorit Kemsley’s antics- which is exactly what the viewers really needed- especially during an otherwise boring wedding. It seems like the last season was a setup for Camille to be full-time next year, but that might not be the case.
