Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills - Teddi & Dorit

I started this season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills planning to keep an open mind, but the plotting is just so sloppy and transparent. And not the plotting Lisa Vanderpump is doing!

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave has, by now, told about 15 renditions of her involvement/non-involvement in DogGate. In each version, she becomes increasingly naive and played for a fool. Also each time one of her versions doesn’t coincide with the revision, the other women conveniently brush it aside and double-down on the narrative that Teddi is the victim. Or Dorit Kemsley is. Really?

For instance tonight Teddi told her therapist she never spoke directly to Lisa about Doggate (Why are we still talking about this?!), then told Dorit and the other women that she was on a three-way call with Lisa and John Sessa which proves LVP is directly involved. Isn’t the  whole point of Teddi’s argument that LVP isn’t owning her part and wants to frame Teddi? Well, it sounds like Teddi is doing the same exact thing!

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave On Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

Tonight the axis of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills officially shifts when Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, a turtle of accountability, cements her very misplaced alliance with the rest of the cast against Lisa Vanderpump. All this over Dorit Kemsley (who has a deflated bank account to go with her droopy ethics and very drooping bikini tops) mistreating a dog and a friend.

I mean, when you (Teddi) are basing your rejection of a friendship based on said friend’s (LVP) possible collaboration in exposing a really shitty, contract violating, grifting, lying animal mistreating, a-hole, you probably need to reexamine your priorities in life and your version of morality. Just my opinion! But there goes Teddi throwing accountability to the wolves of Erika Girardi, Lisa Rinna, and Dorit. Girl… have fun with that til they turn back on you. 

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave

I feel like Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave was told to take it up a notch this season. Last year, she was super chill. Her main conflicts were upsetting Dorit Kemsley for using the wrong stemware, and upsetting Erika Girardi because she has a famous dad. Also knowing nothing about fashion. 

This season, Teddi 2.0 showed up. And she came in hot! All glammed up and gunning for her former friend, Lisa Vanderpump. After all, a storyline against Lisa equals more camera time. Hence #puppygate was born. And like a dog with a bone (sorry, I had to), Teddi is not letting go anytime soon.

Kyle Richards

Fans of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills know that Kyle Richards has a super close bond with her daughters. She also seems to be a hands on mom. You don’t see twenty nannies running around her home, ahem, Dorit Kemsley. 

On the show this week, we were put to sleep as Kyle saw another member of her brood off to college. And even though she still has several daughters living at home, Kyle is probably suffering from empty nest syndrome. Here comes Andy Cohen to the rescue!

On last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills the dissecting of doggate and what LISA VANDERPUMP knows continued in full-force. I am just so over this storyline and this same old nonsense. Already I am Loosy Loosey Losty Attention for Lucy Lucy Apple Juice!

In other news Kyle Richards, the eight circle of hell, dropped another daughter off at college. Also Denise Richards decided to get married to Aaron Phypers approximately 10 minutes after his divorce from Nicollette Sheridan was finalized. Why is she not on this show?

Kyle Richards

Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump have had a tumultuous relationship during all eight seasons of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Even so, the housewife OGs have managed to still be good friends throughout their ups and downs. Season 9 just might be the breaking point for their friendship.

It didn’t take long for viewers to see that Kyle and Lisa were at odds. The very first episode of the season opened with Ken Todd calling Kyle a liar and kicking her out of Villa Rosa as Lisa stood by. Whatever caused the feud, ahem #puppygate, is still ongoing per Kyle’s recent actions on social media.

How did we ever survive before social media? The opportunities to share your life with the world are endless. You can tout your children’s accomplishments, post photos of beautiful sunsets and reveal every morsel you eat at an expensive dinner in seconds.

For the most part, I think social media is a great connector of humanity. However, there are some people who should think twice before hitting the “post” button. Especially impulsive people who don’t think about the consequences of their actions. Who maybe have a big mouth. And love to be the center of attention. And think they are hilarious. You know, someone like Lisa Rinna. Now, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has gotten herself into some hot water over an ill-advised social media post that is culturally insensitive, to say the least.

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave - Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

Lucy Lucy Apple Juice continues to be the breakout star on this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. So many sides of this dog drama are unfolding every episode. The main point of contention seems to be whether or not Lisa Vanderpump wanted the story out. Did LVP want to punish Dorit Kemsley? Or did Lisa’s Vanderpump Dog employees actually go rogue? Perhaps LVP’s shiny new puppet Teddi Mellencamp has the answer.

LVP seems adamant that Teddi was the one gossiping with “The Johns” about Dorit’s dog drama. It all came to a head in last night’s episode when Teddi and LVP discussed the situation. Teddi expected an apology, while LVP wanted to “confront” her about the whole thing. Clearly someone is lying in this situation. The conversation led to Teddi storming out of Lisa’s room. Later that night it was LVP abruptly leaving after feeling “hammered” by her costars. It’s all so confusing, but Teddi is speaking out and giving THE RECEIPTS!
