Before 2019, Felicity Huffman was best known as one of America’s most celebrated actresses. The Emmy Award winner and Academy Award nominee was renowned for her iconic role as Lynette Scavo on the campy television show Desperate Housewives. And for her touching turn as a transgender woman in the film Transamerica.
In March of this year, Felicity took on a role she probably never imagined she would be playing. She became the face of the notorious college admissions scandal, along with actress Lori Loughlin. Felicity pled guilty to fraud for paying $15,000 to boost her daughter’s SAT scores. She was just sentenced to 14 days in jail, one year of probation, 250 hours of community service and fined $30,000. Obviously, casting Felicity at this point might be a bit tricky, at least until she completes her sentence.
Everyone seems exhausted from “speculating” about anything to do with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. At this point, loyal fans are in a holding pattern with the current cast members. It has become a love them or hate them situation after Season 9 drama unearthed financial and legal issues. Issues people may or may not have been trying to hide… Were viewers duped into a storyline involving a defenseless animal while the real news was swept under the rug? Signs definitely seem to point in that direction.
Erika Jayne had a relatively low key season. That might be a nice way of saying, she looked bored the entire time. Erika has joined co-stars Dorit Kemsley and Kyle Richards in the “Honey, what should I wear to court today?” club. Her husband, Tom Girardi, has been involved in a dispute over a measly $15 million. Petty cash! Still, Erika wasn’t phased by Tom’s litigious dance, until she got her own date with a judge. But look, all the cool kids are hanging out with their legal teams, so who cares? Since the core cast has now been disintegrated thanks to #puppygate, we have two new ladies making their debut next year. Erika’s return has been up for debate, but now we finally have some answers.
Well, well, what do we have here? Does Kyle Richards have competition for the title of “Queen” on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Is the monarchy about to be overthrown? Let’s face it, the HBIC role is currently held by Kyle, but it seems to be by default. After Lisa Vanderpump quit the show, Kyle was blessed with the queen moniker by Erika Jayne at the Season 9 reunion. However, not one but two new cast members joining the ladies may keep Kyle’s reign brief. Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke are locked in and about to join the wild ride of reality television. At least the newbies are coming on board at the same time, so they have that in common. Another trait they share is being friends with Lisa Rinna.
Ah Rinna, what would we do without you? We would miss your at-home spa treatments. We would suffer in the wake of losing your knee-slapping hilarity. And I would personally miss the occasional appearance of Harry Hamlin. If you recall, Lisa is also old school friends with Denise Richards. They have shared appearances on television shows and maybe a boyfriend as well. This could lead to an interesting dynamic heading into the 10th RHOBH season. Now that Lisa could have a “team”, what does that mean for Queen Kyle? Is there a new sheriff in town after all?
The war of words rages on between Kyle Richards and Camille Grammer.
Backstage at the launch of her new fashion line during New York Fashion Week, Kyle once again denied that she’s the reason Camille isn’t returning for Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Andy Cohen is finally back from vacation and ready to spill the tea!
Earlier this week, the Bravo boss returned to the airwaves with his SiriusXM show, Andy Cohen Live on Radio Andy to comment on the casting of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newbies Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke.
She’s baaaaack? Bravo just loves toying with their fans’ emotions, am I right? I don’t think it is out of the question to say viewers may have some concerns about the next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Fan favorite Lisa Vanderpump took a surprising hike off the show while the remaining ladies juggle various legal issues. It has been confirmed two new cast members will join the crew. Lisa Rinna’s friend, Sutton Stracke and model/actress/goddess Garcelle Beauvais will hopefully add a much-needed touch of glamour.
the new queen Kyle Richards is coming back, along with her lapdog BFF Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. Yes, to the delight of everyone, Teddi has been spied with HRH Richards and cameras following them! You have to figure Dorit Kemsley will return because she has bills to pay will require atonement after last year’s #puppygate fiasco. Rinna basically does whatever anyone tells her to do, so we assume there’s been no change in her status. Erika Jayne managed to leave everyone with a question mark. There was a brief buzz that her husband wouldn’t let her film she had quit the show or received a demotion. Now as we wait for final confirmation on the current cast, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Erika has been spotted filming! And the world rejoiced…
The crown is heavy dahlings – so let’s just leave it where it belongs. Lisa Vanderpump may no longer be a cast member on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills but she’ll always be queen of that show (sorry, Kyle Richards). Lisa walked away after 9 seasons on the show because of puppy-gate, crappy friends, and two real-life losses. Her brother passed away, as we saw on the show, and nine months later her mother, Jean Vanderpump, passed away at 84. She clearly has a lot going on and made the right decision to stay away from the manufactured drama. Besides, she’s better on Vanderpump Rules, where there’s no doubt about who’s boss.
The only good news about RHOBH after Lisa’s exit is that Bravo was forced to shake-up the cast. Sutton Stracke and Garcelle Beauvais have been announced as new housewives. It’s about time Bravo took concrete steps to diversify this show. Perhaps it took LVP’s exit to rethink the direction of the show. Either way, it took a lot for LVP to walk away, and friends of hers have apparently been telling her to leave for years. Now people in her life have been noticing a positive change in Lisa since her departure.
Bravo announced last week that two new Housewives were joining the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills next season–actress Garcelle Beauvais and party planner Sutton Stracke. It makes you wonder–does it take two Housewives to replace one departed Lisa Vanderpump?
All during Season 9, rumors were flying about whether or not Lisa would be returning for Season 10. Of course, Lisa announced before the reunion that she would not be returning for another year of castmate torture. Vanderpump fans everywhere were quick to blame her co-stars for her departure. If long-time Vanderpump friend Lance Bass had his way, however, Lisa would have left the show prior to last season.
