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.
Kyle Richards doesn’t care! It’s not her party and she’ll throw tantrums if she wants to, start fights if she wants to, Dorit Kemsley – you would too if happened to you. So that’s pretty much how the season finale of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills went!
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.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast trip to Berlin was going pretty well…. and then Erika Jayne confronted Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave over her that “pretend amnesia” comment at a group dinner with the entire cast during the last episode. She could have just discussed it privately with Teddi instead, but in front of the camera crew, of course.
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.
Even though the current season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is a bit sub-par, every cast member was on her game when all of the ladies appeared on Watch What Happens Live. If only they were this entertaining during the actual season…
Erika Jayne, Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley, Lisa Rinna, and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave all joined Andy Cohen for a special Los Angeles episode of Watch What Happens Live. The only one was missing was “Friend of the Housewives” Camille Grammer.
Reporting from Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills there’s really nothing to report here people! The women survived Berlin, no pandas were injured as a result of this filming, they returned to LA: gyrated, cried over houses and bikinis and puppies, then left us to go hide until the finale. You know – it was that calm before the storm finale episode and it made my heart sad because that means the end is near for this season of RHOBH. Also this trip to Berlin was brought to us by Aperol Spritz, which I am now going to be drinking liberally because it apparently erases cellulite, droopy brows, bad manners, and the need to cause drama over nothing!
Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave are sitting in a the lobby of Berlin’s finest luxury hotel just waiting, and waiting, and waiting for the appearance of their idol, pop star Erika Jayne. Teddi jitters her knee and double-checks that her autograph book is by her side; Kyle, anxious she’s not cool enough, hikes up her over-the-knee boots a little higher and decides she better paint her nails. I’m impressed with her on-the-fly mani skills though!
With so many great reality shows back with new episodes this week and others that are filming for the next season, it makes sense that a lot of reality TV stars are sharing behind-the-scenes photos.
New York Housewife Tinsley Mortimer finally cut her signature hair, so of course she shared a photo of getting all glammed up with her new look. Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels shared a photo of her hair and makeup team getting her ready to throw shade during some on-camera interviews this season. Orange County Housewife Shannon Beador also posted a photo of her glam squad in action. Southern Charm star Shep Rose shared a photo of he and Whitney Sudler-Smith in front of a green screen in between shooting some commentary on the current season.
Oh, Berlin with the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. It actually wasn’t a bad trip if you ignore the weird, fantastical, messy veal tartare of an argument Dorit Kemsley tried to throw at Kyle Richards. Why can’t these women just ever have fun eating food… it’s like if they start a fight they won’t have time to consume the calories?
Yet for the most part everyone had fun and got along. Prost to that! (Cheers in German. Thanks Google)
First the women either went shopping or spent 4+ hours ordering lattes in German. Kyle, Lisa Rinna and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave are afraid they’ll be forced into consuming whole milk and sugar by language barriers. Like the Germans are some primitive people never exposed to modern things like – gasp – ALMOND MILK. Or fat-free milk! I think the menus were actually written in cave drawings and ‘hoople hop ooper mandopippitidy peep pop poopio’ or whatever ever it is Lipsa ordered was actually dehydrated wild buffalo penis. You never know with these newly discovered civilizations! I mean … pretzels?
