This is not entirely unexpected. Real Housewives of New York is filming right now, minus one melodramatic humanitarian. Yes, viewers will need to find the strength to move on without Bethenny Frankel dominating every scene she is in.
You won’t find Luann de Lesseps crying in the corner over the loss of Bethenny. Especially after last season. Luann has often been the target of Bethenny’s multiple mood swings and vice versa. Fans will also be introduced to new ladies that will inevitably be reduced to showing audiences if they
crack under pressure have the right stuff. Good luck, Leah McSweeney! Now Luann shares her thoughts on life without Bethenny. You can take off your sunglasses for this one, because it gets a little shady.
A new Real Housewives series is supposedly in the works! Housewives fans will either rejoice or recoil at the news. Currently, there are seven series on Bravo’s rotation. Real Housewives of Orange County and Real Housewives of Potomac are on and rocking right now. Season 4 of Real Housewives of Dallas premieres this week, on Wednesday, actually. Sometime this year fans will be able to watch Season 10 (!!) of Real Housewives of New Jersey. In 2020, we’ll get new seasons of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Real Housewives of New York (in spite of losing Bethenny Frankel) and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (in spite of losing Lisa Vanderpump).
That was a lot to write! There are seven series in the Housewives canon! Imagine if Real Housewives of D.C. and Real Housewives of Miami were still on. I would literally get nothing done. Even though my life revolves around watching Housewives, there are simply too many shows to keep up with. Now, my time and attention will become even more limited since the location of this new series hits home!
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 9 has been the show’s most interesting season in recent years. Unfortunately, that still wasn’t enough to keep fans satisfied. We can all agree that this show needs to shake up the cast. DESPERATELY.
These ladies and their refusal to admit to anything from lawsuits to plastic surgery to puppy-related schemes have been so frustrating (and boring) to watch. Someone new needs to join this show. Tori Spelling really wants to be on RHOBH, but there’s just one problem. No one ever asked her to be a part of the cast.
Brandi Glanville makes great reality TV. Exhibit A is her recent iconic return to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Aside from the gut-wrentching “Goodbye, Kyle!” scene, she and Denise Richards cheers-ing together on screen was the most exciting thing to happen on Season 9. Now there’s talk of her return to the series in a more permanent capacity. Of course, Kyle Richards has some thoughts.
Kyle and Brandi were not the best of friends during Brandi’s time on the show. Remember when Brandi made her debut in crutches and Kyle and Kim Richards tried to hide them? They’ve come a long way. Gone are the days of accusing each other of smuggling tabloids and having sisters who use meth. Now with confirmation of the departure of Lisa Vanderpump, there is a gaping hole room again for a true reality TV veteran on RHOBH. Her return would definitely shake things up. It might even be making some women nervous.
Kyle Richards and Kim Richards have a unique relationship among Real Housewives–they are the only sisters who have ever starred on a Housewife show together. For five seasons of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, we watched Kyle and Kim fight, make up and fight some more. Their challenging sibling relationship was painful to watch at times, almost making the audience feel like voyeurs to a family psychodrama we weren’t sure we should be watching.
The complicated history of the Sisters Richards would be enough to fill a show all of their own. Kim has made sporadic appearances on RHOBH since leaving the show after Season 5 and there have been occasional rumors about her returning as a cast member. Kyle recently spoke out about Kim’s days as a Housewife, her sobriety–and her possible return to the show.
Hollywood loves their reboots and remakes. Get ready for a new Top Gun, Indiana Jones, Men in Black, and a live action film for every Disney cartoon ever made. And don’t forget Clueless. For the love of God, please leave that perfect film alone. As Cher would say, “Ugh, as if!”
Reality TV has also hopped onto the reboot bandwagon. One of my favorite guilty pleasures, Temptation Island, just aired a brand new season. And I’m still reeling from that shocking finale aftermath with Kaci Campbell and Evan Smith. Now MTV has joined the club, and is bringing back their past hits too.
It has been a wild roller coaster of a ride lately for Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent. Sadly, Lala’s father passed away in April of 2018. This devastated Lala and had an enormous effect on Lala’s well-being. She raged against James Kennedy, his girlfriend Raquel Leviss, and Billie Lee during a brunch at Sur. So, what was the cause? Raquel mentioned Lala’s father. And Lala just can’t stand James.
Lala stopped drinking because of a pact that she made with her fiancé Randall Emmett, which was odd since she was taking her co-stars to Solvang to tour vineyards. Lala’s situation was much worse than everyone thought, and Lala admitted that she has an addiction to alcohol. Lala recently celebrated six months of sobriety, and credits AA with saving her life.
I think we all know the ladies of Vanderpump Rules don’t always take kindly to the introduction of new “friends”. With the exception of Brittany Cartwright. But I think that’s because the ladies feel dating Jax Taylor is punishment enough.
One of the latest newcomers, Billie Lee, has fallen into the crosshairs of former queen bee Stassi Schroeder. (I say former because I feel the ladies have outgrown the hierarchy of their threesome) And in true Stassi fashion, she is not mincing words.
