Say what you want about James Kennedy, but no one can deny that he always brings the entertainment on Vanderpump Rules. The self-proclaimed “White Kanye West” is constantly defending himself from cheating accusations, blessing the fandom with original music, or saying something hilarious.
James opened up about which Real Housewivescast members he would collaborate with and his thoughts on all of the major story lines this season on Vanderpump Rules.
There’s no doubt about it: Season 8 has been the worst season in the history of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Nothing really happened. The slightest issues got dragged out for multiple episodes. It is essentially a lifestyle documentary merged with an infomercial to promote the women’s various business ventures.
No one blames the women capitalizing on the reality TV franchise for self-promotion, but they could at least balance some of that out with an actual story line or two. Unfortunately, all we got were arguments about glassware and tardiness. Yawn. On top of that, a lot of the viewers think that queen Erika Jayne has fallen from grace- especially after she lashed out at Teddi Mellencamp Arroyavefor accusing her of having “fake amnesia.” No one wants to be accused of lying- especially on a reality TV show- so it makes sense that Erika was very upset, but her reaction was just way over the top.
On television, most reality TV stars are focused on the drama, which makes perfect sense it’s a job, but in real life most of your favorite reality TV stars are all about the family time. Or at least that’s what they’re sharing on Instagram these days.
Former New Jersey Housewife Caroline Manzo spent quality time with her granddaughter Marchesa- a photo that she decided to caption with some Kanye West lyrics, which is very unexpected to say the least. Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizziand her two kids had a dance party with Mickey Mouse.
I have so many thoughts on last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion, but the thing I am most excited to discuss – the thing I’ve been waiting to talk about ALL WEEK – is Lisa Rinna‘s hair. It sort of looked like a mop head, no? But it was extreme soap opera and combined with the dress Lipsa obviously decided to bring what she lacked all season, pulling ‘SASSY LISA RINNA’ out of her duster pocket and lettin’er rip. So f–k you, Jeremy! And shut up Lisa Vanderpump.
These girls were quite petty last night, were they not? Like Erika Girardi seriously trying to shade John Mellencamp over a joke made by Andy Cohen that they should collaborate. She’s just bitter that her music will never actually be considered music. (She’s a peeeerrrrrrfffffoooormer). Why can’t Erika ever take a joke?! Insecure much.
Thankfully the worst season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is over… Oh wait, we will still be subjected to the reunion episodes. Of course, I’ll be tuning in no matter what, but I just wish they had more entertaining things to argue about.
All-in-all it was a pretty lackluster season (Lisa Rinna we need you! Like your first and second season you, but I understand you’re scarred after Revenge of the Blue Bunny). When the major drama centers around Dorit’s early on-set dementia (why does this woman never remember anything accurately or at all?!) and hissy fits over etiquette she doesn’t have, or Kyle feeling unsupported, you knew it was gonna end on a fussy note. Which is fine – any time I get to see Kyle act a fool, I kind of relish it.
Erika has every right to be upset that Teddi accused of having “pretend amnesia” i.e. being a liar, but she just had such an over-the -top reaction that was way too much for the new Housewife to handle. That theatrical display completely detracted from Erika’s original grievance. Erika made things even worse when she snapped at Teddi during a group dinner for the second time. She has a valid point, but her delivery is just not right.
You know a Real Housewives show is good when it returns with the same cast it had last season and when it doesn’t rely on “Friends of the Housewives” or other side characters to make it interesting. The only show that statement applies to is Real Housewives of New York.
