After what seems like an eternity, we are almost to season 9 of Vanderpump Rules. I, for one, and semi-excited to see what this rearranged crew has in store. Viewers will no longer have to cope with the likes of Jax Taylor, Stassi Schroeder, and Kirsten Doute. While Jax would love everyone to think he is on to bigger and better things, he and Brittany Cartwright were recently seen on social media mingling with the likes of Angela Deem from TLC’s 90 Day Fiance. Just….why?
Fans of VPR already know to expect to see an engagement storyline from remaining cast members James Kennedy and Raquel Leviss. We also anticipate seeing some motherhood journeys served up by Scheana Marie and Lala Kent. Speaking of Lala, it will be a wonder how she worms her way back into the group without the main Witches of Weho at her side. Since the filming break, she’s been doing a lot of apologizing for past actions, as well as a lot of self-promoting press.
The divorce that shocked the world is FINALLY playing out on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi are no more. The mysterious marriage is coming to an end, and the insanity is only beginning. The other women have no idea what a ride they are in for this season. Erika can’t hide her life behind the curtain for too much longer. Too much is coming to light. It’s time to speak up or get out.
You have to wonder how legitimate Erika’s friendships are with Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley, & Lisa Rinna. They’re allegedly as thick as thieves, but they never saw this coming. They had no inkling whatsoever about this going down. What type of friend would keep their nearest and dearest in the dark like that? If anything, this might cause them to rethink their relationships with her. Will they hold her accountable for her secrecy?
During the Season 11 Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premiere, Garcelle Beauvais sat down with Lisa Rinna to address how Lisa had treated Denise Richards the previous season. Denise denied having a sexual encounter with RHOBH alum Brandi Glanville but was repeatedly pushed to address the situation by her co-stars. When Rinna apologized, she thought everything was settled.
Not so fast, Rinna. Garcelle didn’t resume following Rinna on Instagram. “Rinna for me…it’s tough because I felt like she went to a place that was so unnecessary last season,” Garcelle stated.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is having one of its best seasons in recent years, mostly thanks to the addition of the lovable goofball named Kathy Hilton. Sutton Stracke and Crystal Kung Minkoff have been bringing the drama with their head-t0-head arguments. Kyle Richards and Garcelle Beauvais made up after last year’s battle. But Garcelle is still giving Lisa Rinna the runaround for how she treated her longtime friend Denise Richards last season. And there’s enough tea involving Erika Jayne’s divorce and legal drama for the saga to have its own show.
Rinna has been doing overtime to try to prove she’s a good friend, even though her delivery has been more than questionable at times. Outside of getting the cold shoulder with Garcelle, Rinna seems to be using her daughters yet again to give herself a storyline on RHOBH this year. This time, it has to do with her now 20-year-old daughter Amelia Gray Hamlin dating Kardashians insider (and 38-year-old man) Scott Disick. I’ve always thought Rinna wanted to follow Kris Jenner’s momager footsteps on her own family spinoff. But despite the relationship, it looks like she’ll have to keep working toward that.
It’s no secret Kyle Richards is the HBIC on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and her longevity earned that spot. Kyle’s storyline is usually sibling-related because Kyle requires someone who shares her DNA to have content on this show. Sister Kathy Hilton finally relented to pressure or the allure of pending anxiety attacks and has provided a bit of fresh air in an otherwise stagnant environment ahead of the latest season.
Kyle has seen “friends” come and go and a strong bond developed with certain ladies during her tenure. They are all moms, all wealthy, and all had bad legal issues in their recent past they wanted to hide. After some sketchy exits courtesy of Kyle and her bonded group’s
harassment curiosity regarding certain subjects, Kyle wants everyone to know they definitely aren’t ganging-up on people. It just looks like they’re ganging up on people.
It’s become the highly sought after trait on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. As if living the most idyllic, unrealistic lifestyle in the world, and then documenting it for “reality TV” could be authentic. But here we have the RHOBH ladies battling it out for the title of the authenticity queen of the valley. Also, being consistent with words and sentiments on social media AND on the show is vital to reigning sincerity queen. A lesson painfully learned recently by Dorit Kemsley, someone who adopted an accent to coincide with more posh trait acquisition. Dorit was recently called out for posting supportive words to Garcelle Beauvais’s social media while calling her inauthentic to the press.
It brings up the question, do these ladies even know how to behave with sincerity? Or is it too much to expect synchronicity between showing their true feelings, filming the show, and posting on social media? What we do know is that these ladies will keep one-upping each other. Forget the diamonds, I need pearls of wisdom. It’s been a week of the RHOBH ladies pointing perfectly-manicured, authentic fingers at each other. More specifically that Lisa Rinna, and Dorit were singling out Garcelle for being phony. Not to be left out of a good conflict, Kyle Richards is ready to finish the job by giving her opinion on the feud.
Season 11 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills welcomed some new faces. Sutton Stracke, who was a Friend of the Housewives last season, is clutching a diamond this time around. RHOBH alum Teddi Mellencamp recommended her friend, Crystal Kung Minkoff, for the show. Crystal runs a successful business, RealCoco, and is a married mother of two.
And Kyle Richards’ older sister, Kathy Hilton, signed on as a Friend of the Housewives. Kathy is hilarious. I can’t get enough!
The ladies of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are bringing it this season. And it’s a refreshing change from the past few seasons filled with gang-ups, deflections and a whole lot of NOT owning it. We know that Erika
Vain Jayne’s fishy divorce and ongoing legal issues with Tom Girardi will be addressed shortly, and she’s choosing her words carefully since the feds are tuning into Bravo now. Sutton Stracke is putting her new diamond to work with her constant crying and ugly feud with newbie Crystal Kung Minkoff. Garcelle Beauvais is not over Lisa Rinna’s behavior last season toward her so-called friend Denise Richards. And it’s pretty hilarious to watch Rinna continue to try to brush it off, while Garcelle refuses to let up. And don’t even get me started on the joy that is Kathy Hilton, the true savior of RHOBH.
It appears as though the RHOBH cast is paying attention to what fans have been saying about the past few seasons. Rinna is doing overtime to try to appear like a good friend. The girls are learning to throw shade in every direction, rather than ganging up on one person. Well, unless that person is Lisa Vanderpump.
These ladies, particularly LVP’s old buddies Dorit Kemsley and Kyle Richards, will never let up on shading the Brit for their volatile past. And while a Kyle and LVP reconciliation would happen when pigs fly (or when Erika is actually HONEST about ANYTHING in her life), the two can’t help but have a little fun by being shady to one another in the press. To me, it honestly seems like they miss each other because they both love to bring the other up any chance they get. It’s almost kind of endearing, in some sick and twisted way.
