Who doesn’t love a good dog storyline on Bravo? Our furry friends bring out all the feels. A recent-ish personal favorite was the hilarity of Sonja Morgan mindlessly sharing her hairbrush with Marley on camera. There’s also the scene of Giggy drinking from one of Adrienne Maloof’s goblets at a dinner party. Iconic.
The loss of Bravo-pups, however, never gets any easier. The internet just about blew-up when Bethenny Frankel Instagram-lived her dog’s health crisis. Unfortunately, Cookie later passed at the ripe age of seventeen! There was also the loss of Kenya Moore’s darling Velvet, which caused quite the stir off screen. More recently, Andy Cohen rehomed his beloved Wacha following the birth of his son, Benjamin Allen Cohen.
If there’s one thing Lisa Vanderpump knows how to do, it’s collect a paycheck. Her days on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills feel like another lifetime ago, but never say never when it comes to a potential return. Well, as long as an entirely new cast was introduced. Meanwhile, Vanderpump Rules is filming its ninth season, minus a few familiar faces, now that LVP has been able to open her restaurants after some setbacks, to say the least. And she even has a new show on E! Network, so don’t ever say LVP is shy around a camera, especially when they’re capturing her glamorous life inside Villa Rosa.
If you thought Lisa had enough on her plate, you’re greatly underestimating her hustle. And her love of appearing on TV as the sole star, without Kyle Richards trying to take her crown. She’s preparing for the premiere of a new show on Peacock called Vanderpump Dogs, which looks like a mashup of VPR and a dating show, except with dogs instead of confused 30-year-old restaurant workers. Very on-brand for a pooch-loving LVP.
It seems like a lifetime ago that we last had new episode of Vanderpump Rules on our screen. A lot has changed. Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurants dealt with closures due to the pandemic, and a few legal issues here and there. Stassi Schroeder, Kristin Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were fired for alleged racist behaviors. Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright also “left” the show (read: probably also got fired). Stassi, Brittany, Lala Kent and Scheana Shay are new moms. Even Lisa’s beloved Giggy crossed over to doggy heaven.
After the whirlwind of an offseason, it was starting to feel like VPR was done for good. It even had Scheaners worried. Several alums (aka the one’s who “left’) were calling for a new spinoff show with just the OGs. It’s probably because they, especially Jax, could use a boost in their bank accounts right about now. And while Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix gave us hope for a return, it seemed like the Pump Rules train came and left, never to return.
There is major trouble afoot on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: What Ever Happened To Erika Jayne? Lots of legal issues are brewing and possible criminal charges are looming. Also, the show is in production which means viewers will get a glimpse of what everyone is talking about, even though they won’t be talking about it. But that’s okay because we are going to MENTION IT ALL. Erika Jayne and estranged husband Tom Girardi might have knocked Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers off the Worst Scammers of All Time pedestal.
Vicki and Brooks held that title for years, because sympathy casseroles were a thing. But Tom and Erika’s recent accusations of embezzlement and fraud blow them out of the water. So what happens when you are accused of stealing money from plane crash and burn victims? When your assets are frozen amid questionable divorce filings and you are 30 seconds away from forced bankruptcy? Honey, you start selling your shit. And that’s exactly what Erika is doing. Anyone need a gently used Gucci tracksuit with faint notes of Jean Nate and desperation?
I was shocked to hear the news last week that Project Runway designer Chris March had passed away at the age of 56. He suffered a heart attack on Thursday, September 5th.
A contestant on Season 4 of Project Runway, Chris placed fourth on the show. He was known for his amazing talent for costume design and gifted us with some of the most creative frocks ever to come down the runway. Chris was long a Bravo favorite, appearing on several of the network’s shows over the last decade.
Lisa Vanderpump’s empire just keeps on growing! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills OG and Vanderpump Rules star just opened up the Vanderpump Cocktail Garden in Las Vegas.
The event was very Lisa with touches of pink everywhere for the big opening. Lisa’s husband Ken Todd was there, of course. So were their two kids Pandora Vanderpump and Max Todd. And once again, I’m wondering why they have different last names. But I’ve digressed. Pretty much everyone from the Vanderpump Rules cast was there. Even Lisa’s beloved dog Giggy. However, there was only one Real Housewife of Beverly Hills at the opening.
Last night Lisa Vanderpump celebrated her first Vanderpump Dog Foundation Gala with friends, family, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules co-stars and former co-stars.
Lisa was joined by past RHOBH stars Taylor Armstrong and Joyce Giraud, current co-stars Eden Sassoon, Kyle Richards and Dorit Kemsley, and most of the Vanderpump Rules cast: Lala Kent, James Kennedy, Jax Taylor, Tom Sandoval, Katie Maloney, Scheana Shay and more. Sidenote: Why is Shay almost NEVER with Scheana?
Also spotted: Mohamed Hadid, Little Women: LA star Christy McGinty, Million Dollar Listing star David Parnes, Lance Bass (who is on the 2016 Honorary Board for the foundation), Real Housewives of Dallas star Stephanie Hollman and more.
The event included music, cocktails, a silent auction and more, all benefiting Lisa’s new foundation.
The winners of Reality Tea‘s second annual Readers’ Choice Awards were announced throughout the day on Friday. There were a few shockers.
Lisa Vanderpump winning every category for which she was nominated didn’t surprise us, however, we were a little surprised by the winners of the Best New Reality Show of 2015 and Housewife You Wish Would Return categories.
If you missed a few – or all – of the winner announcements, look below for the complete list of winners. You can click on the categories listed in pink to see the runners up. Thank you for your participation. We hope you enjoyed it.
