I’m sure everyone will join me in once again thanking Kyle Richards for bringing Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave back to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Though Teddi is only visiting, her return was anxiously anticipated by literally no one other than Erika Jayne, who is now approving all requests for desperate friendships.
Ahead of being the newest member of the esteemed Fox Force Five, Teddi caught up with an old friend for an interview. She joined Jeff Lewis to bring everyone up to speed on what we’ve missed in her absence. After the crickets chirped, Teddi spoke on what she could have done differently in the Denise Richards drama and how she might have accidentally provided Bravo with her replacement.
Real Housewives of Miami was a great show and according to the folks at the Peacock network, it’s about to come back. We haven’t had a solid confirmation on the current cast, but it seems sealed in stone that original RHOM star Lea Black will not be on board. But if you miss the lilting sound of her laughter, Lea does appear quite often on Sirius radio with former Flipping Out star, Jeff Lewis.
Lea is married to a very high-powered attorney and actually met her husband when she was a juror on a trial. Naturally she may take more than your average level of interest in Housewives who are involved in legal disputes. After months of watching people take down Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne, Lea is viewing the entire ordeal with a sympathetic eye. Recently, Lea attempted to use her powers of influence in an effort to build support for Erika’s current plight. To be fair, Lea is used to rooting for the
There’s no secret that Shannon Beador is not a big fan of David Beador’s new wife, Lesley Cook Beador, and vice versa. The Real Housewives of Orange County star went through a very public divorce with David, and seemingly tried everything, including some unusual couples’ therapy and a vow renewal, to put it back together again. But even that didn’t work.
And David didn’t waste any time dating, which we saw on the show was a huge bummer to Shannon. Now he has a new wife and a new baby with her, and it seems like Shannon cannot stop talking about them. Probably because she’s still bitter about the whole thing, but who could blame her? David, while he’s an expert at munching on chips, he wasn’t so good at being a faithful husband to Shannon.
While several members of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast have been involved in their fair share of controversies, no housewife is more divisive than Kelly Dodd. It started with her low-blow attacks on her castmates regarding their age, appearances and more. Last year, she took it to another level when she made insensitive comments about the coronavirus pandemic and wore a hat that mocked the Black Lives Matter movement. She’s since apologized for her “stupid” comments, but even Kelly thinks she’s probably getting the boot before Season 16. But who knows, because Andy Cohen doesn’t necessarily think she’s problematic.
And now Kelly has found herself in a controversy with former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump. But, somehow, LVP was the one admitting to a lie and apologizing to Kelly. I know, it’s very off-brand for these two.
Gone but not forgotten. Lisa Vanderpump has managed to remain semi-relevant since her exit from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It’s doubly impressive since her other show, Vanderpump Rules is also in need of some serious revival. While Lisa would have you think everything is going well, viewers have other ideas.
Either way, Lisa’s faithful followers were overjoyed in July when news broke she had snagged a new show surrounding her Vanderpump Dogs rescue. Fans had to hold on tight, though, since some people didn’t share that die-hard loyalty to LVP. There’s still a few theories that puppy-gate was just a launching pad for Ken Todd and Lisa to start yet another venture. Deep breaths everyone.
Lisa Barlow is an interesting cast member on Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. She is a boss and is always working on ways to grow her businesses. Lisa, who defines herself as “Mormon 2.0,” owns several alcohol brands with her husband, John Barlow. That fact alone is controversial in the Mormon Church.
Lisa and her best friend, (and doppelganger,) Meredith Marks always have each other’s backs. After RHOSLC co-star Jen Shah had a meltdown in Las Vegas, Lisa proclaimed that she didn’t think that she could be friends with Jen anymore. Since Jen had been gossiping about Meredith’s marriage to Seth Marks, Meredith was good with that decision.
Bienvenida a Miami and can I just say, FINALLY! It looks like Bravo is in talks to breathe new life into Real Housewives of Miami. RHOM used to be a thing but if you blinked, you missed it. The show was born in 2011 and introduced us to a few names we still hear about now and then. Most recently, Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps caught some flack about hanging out with Marysol Patton and Alexia Echevarria. Miami alum Lisa Hochstein was in the news for racking up some fines after partying during the pandemic
Miami came to an end in 2013 for reasons we really don’t know. Andy Cohen implied it was due to the death of Marysol’s mother, Mama Elsa. He also said ratings had dropped off towards the end of the third season, so it was given the axe. Thankfully, reboots have become a thing and Miami could get another shot. Word on the street is Bravo is bringing back the franchise and returning us to palm trees and blue seas. But, will this be like re-gifting or getting a whole new present?
For being one of the most consistently contentious casts, there is finally something *most* Real Housewives of Orange County can agree on. Their dislike for Braunwyn Windham-Burke. As the season closed, the cast seemed to hit new theatrical heights all around. But no one was more dramatic than B. To be fair, she was grappling with some pretty shitty news.
Shannon Beador let it drop that Braunwyn had previously (and drunkenly) offered her 14-year-old daughter cocaine! Yeeeesh! At another point, Braunwyn accused Shannon of having a drinking problem too. Of course, Shannon denies this. She claims shes “fun” not an alcoholic. Okay then.
