Tonight we enter part 2 of the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion, and shit is hitting the proverbial fan. Or I dunno – maybe someone really is flinging things at an actual fan? Fake hair, perhaps? Rhinestone clips from Claire’s Boutique? Unresolved emotions? Whatever the shit is, you know know it came from Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave‘s detox.
Anyway, Teddi finds herself under fire from Andy Cohen himself when he calls Teddi out for misrepresenting her role in Puppygate thus causing an irreparable rift between Lisa Vanderpump and the rest of the group. Teddi continues to spin on her hamster wheel (#AllIn) but even Dorit Kemsley starts to question Teddi’s version of accountability!
I’m just gonna be honest: I was bored watching the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion. Maybe it’s because this season has been so overblown. All the revelations about Lisa Vanderpump not showing were already out and it was just a big old meh. It was big old gushy fake love fest about how Kyle Richards is queen… And Erika Jayne needs one of Dorit Kemsley‘s CLIPs to be put over her mouth.
Speaking of clips, the ones in Dorit’s hair should have read, “Fake” “Broke” “Grifter” “Dog Dumper” “Liar” “Bad Designer” And worst of all, “PK’s Wife.” The rest of Dorit’s outfit looked like a disco ball blew up. Hey, they’re broke so reduce, reuse, recycle to make the most of life on limited means.
Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave has been busy this season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She helped propagate the dumbest storyline puppygate and told off a vulnerable Lisa Vanderpump. Teddi wore out her fingers out texting John Sessa Blizzard (I still don’t care). She also decided to pay a stylist who obviously hates her to try to level up with the other women. Oh, and did I mention she’s busy now Kyle Richards’ mouthpiece?
Remember earlier this season when she was complaining about doing LVP’s dirty work? Now she’s happily doing Kyle’s! For their first night out in Provence, the ladies went all out by wearing black. (I’m still not over the memory of Dorit Kemsely’s feather leather jacket). The women also tried something new by attempting to deliver in a scene. With Kyle at the helm now, she and Teddi tried to start some drama by calling out Lisa Rinna’s behavior at Farrah-ween. Honestly, I think the only person truly offended by Rinna’s awful Erika Jayne impersonation was Kyle. Yes, everyone was cringing. But Kim Richards even forgave Rinna! So, Kyle we get it. You need to harp on this because LVP has left the building you were personally traumatized. The only person on Kyle’s side here was Teddi.
John Sessa doesn’t like two things. People slamming Lisa Vanderpump and buttoning his shirt. Being the executive officer of Vanderpump Dogs explains his ire when someone goes up against the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star, but his chest exposure remains a mystery. Obviously, John had a vested interest in the disgrace behind #puppygate, because dog rescue is his life’s mission. He has not only been Lisa’s right hand man in the fight for animal rights, he has been her biggest supporter since the drama unfolded.
Many people think we’ve heard too much from John lately. But let’s face it, there aren’t a lot of people in LVP’s corner. Because the series of events focused on dog rescue, of course he would be involved. John continues to defend
his meal ticket Lisa V., and maintain her innocence against the dreaded Puppygate Girl Gang.
Last night was the weirdest, most insanely random episode of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills ever! This is RHOBH without a common enemy to direct all their wrath and delusions onto. I dunno — I loved it!
Dorit Kemsley shows up in a redneck tuxedo to Denise Richards‘ house to drink double vodka tonics at 2 in the afternoon and talk motherhood. (Denise had water since she had to pick her daughter up from school) Ha! Motherhood was about 2% of their conversation the rest was all Lisa Vanderpump. Denise liked Dorit immediately when she met her, and found her very warm and kind. That’s Dorit’s ruse — everyone feels that way about her. Initially.
Denise counsels Hollywood neophyte Dorit about handling close friends betraying you to the tabloids. When Denise was going through her divorce she actually used to run sting operations on confidantes by sharing something with them to see if it would wind up in the press, and that was how she knew who was a true friend. Despite LVP ruining her reputation, eviscerating her belief in friends, and making her question all of humanity, Dorit still wants their friendship back. Denise believes that – with time – Dorit can eventually forgive her.
Every week I tune in to Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills and every week I say, “Please let there be no more Lucy stuff… Please let the dog crap be pooper scooped and done with… NoMoreDogs, NoMoreDogs, NoMoreDogs!” Aaaaannnd every week my hopes are dashed!
The episode opens with 24 hours later. Kyle Richards is at dinner with the rest of the girls. They are on the edge of their seats as she fills them in on being screamed at by Ken and thrown out of Villa Rosa after accusing Lisa Vanderpump of planting the tabloid story.
The women are shocked by Lisa’s reactions. Really? “That’s not friendship,” scoffs Erika Girardi, “that’s bullshit.” Does Erika have friends she doesn’t pay to stuff her into latex and other “pat the puss” endeavors? How would she even know the difference between friendship and bullshit? And to that I say, it is bullshit that Kyle barged over to her s0-called friend’s house, a day before her birthday, to accuse her of lying. BULLSHIT.
Let’s be honest (sorry, super fans): Lisa Vanderpump gets a completely different edit on Vanderpump Rules than she does on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. On Vanderpump Rules, Lisa is the sweet mentor who has given these “waitresses” golden opportunities
that they don’t deserve. On RHOBH, she is constantly called out for being a puppet master.
At this point, I don’t get why Lisa would even bother with the bull shit on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills when she can just pop in sporadically on Vanderpump Rules. That role just seems way easier to me. Anyway, it has to be so weird knowing Lisa as a cast member on one show and watching her on the other. Recently, Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder and Lala Kent weighed in on the Lucy Lucy Apple Juice saga.
Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills certainly has focused on one issue—what happened to Lucy Lucy Apple Juice. We all know that Dorit Kemsley and her husband, PK Kemsley, violated their adoption contract with Vanderpump Dogs by re-homing Lucy rather than returning her to Lisa Vanderpump’s organization. Lucy nipped the children and PK, so it is understandable that Dorit had to make some hard decisions. But Dorit had previously returned a dog to Vanderpump Dogs, so she should have known the rules. Somehow poor Lucy ended up in a kill shelter. If only Dorit had read the contract that she signed, or just given the dog back, all of this would have been avoided. And we would instead be speculating about why Harry Hamlin is spending so much time in the Canadian wilderness without wife Lisa Rinna. (Sorry, Rinna!)
Dorit and PK are under mounting financial pressure, so it isn’t shocking that they didn’t pay Vanderpump Dogs the $5,000 fee for violating the contract. “Puppy gate” has rippled through the entire RHOBH cast. Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave says that Lisa instructed employees John Sessa and John Blizzard share information about Dorit’s dastardly deed with Teddi. Kyle Richards believes, along with every other Beverly Hills Housewife, that Lisa leaked the story about Dorit to the press.
