Hillary Clinton

Carole Radziwill Heather Thomson

The 2016 presidential election was central to Carole Radziwill’s storyline on Real Housewives of New York season 9.

She hosted a victory party for Hillary Clinton, which she planned before finding out the election results. Carole’s tagline even played into that election loss, with her quipping, “In the politics of friendship, I win the popular vote.”

Brandi Glanville Says Bill Clinton “Cupped Her Boob Underneath” And She Was “Very Happy With It”

Right now, Brandi Glanville is back in the spotlight thanks to her claims that she had a sexual relationship with Denise Richards. During the most recent episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Brandi went to that “Capri-themed” room at Bucca di Bepo, overly-adorned with fake lemons from the dollar store, for Teddi Mellencamp’s surprise baby shower… even though she has next to no relationship with Teddi.

We all know why she was really invited though. Yes, we saw her invite herself in that flashback scene with Teddi, Kyle Richards, and Kim Richards. But, aside from that, what other storyline did we see on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this season? Once Kyle realized that Denise didn’t like her, she started hanging with Brandi on-camera.

And, then “coincidentally” this hookup became a storyline; i.e. the main talking point of almost every episode this season. The first few episodes revolved around Kyle’s poor behavior, but after that, all they had to talk about was Brandi. I can’t help thinking “how convenient.” Now, the conversation has shifted from calling out Kyle for her behavior in a group setting to shining the spotlight on Denise for her off-camera life.
