Lisa Vanderpump has certainly had an emotional time on Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She started filming shortly after the death of her brother on April 3, 2018. The biggest scandal of the season, (besides Camille Grammer’s graphic sex talk) is “puppy gate.” And it
will never end is still going strong. If only Dorit Kemsley and her husband PK Kemsley had properly returned the pup, dubbed Lucy Lucy Apple Juice, to the Vanderpump Dog Foundation. Instead they allegedly re-homed Lucy, and somehow Lucy ended up in a kill shelter. Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave claimed that she was manipulated into leaking information about Dorit but couldn’t do it. Yawn.
The fall-out from “puppy gate” was swift. Kyle Richards accused long-time friend Lisa of leaking the story about Dorit to the tabloids. Lisa swore that she didn’t. In what was one of the most uncomfortable confrontations from any Housewives franchise, Lisa and her husband Ken Todd, banished Kyle from Villa Rosa. No more little ponies or swans for you, Kyle!
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.
Leave it to the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills to drag out a fight from two years ago, along with a ghost of Housewives past to celebrate Halloween, and also because well, without Lisa Vanderpump what else do they have to talk about? I mean they have stuff to talk about, they just won’t.
It’s the final morning in Hawaii, the day after Camille Grammer tied the knot a second time, and finally, at long last, we get our first sighting of The Agency apparel. I’ve been waiting all of the Hawaii trip – looking for swim trunks, hats, custom-ordered shot glasses, a bridesmaids gown… and on the last breakfast Mauricio Umansky finally just shows up to brunch wearing an Agency t-shirt.
Even when she isn’t around, Lisa Vanderpump manages to be the most-talked-about person on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She stopped filming in the middle of the season, but production is doing a great job weaving in random kitchen remodel footage to make it seem like she stuck around a lot longer than she did.
Then, there’s that infamous lie detector test that she took with her boy John Sessa by her side. You know the one that Kyle Richards’ daughter’s friend supposedly saw with her own eyes. Does anyone actually believe that Alexia Umansky’s friend actually happened to be at the same lie detector facility as LVP? There’s little to no chance that actually happened. Someone in production definitely spilled the beans on that one. Now, there’s still one burning question and it has nothing to do with leaking a story. Will Lisa attend the Season 9 reunion taping?
Whether you’re Team Lisa Vanderpump or Team Everyone else, (pretty much) everyone can agree that she is an avid LGBTQ advocate. That’s why it was so surprising when she made a seemingly transphobic “joke” about Erika Jayne during the last episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Lisa was talking about the lie detector test she took during the episode. Aside from the questions about the dog scandal, John Sessa included a question that shaded Dorit Kemsley’s constantly changing face and accent. Lisa had no problem answering every question except for one that she didn’t want mentioned. Lisa randomly”joked,” “Just don’t ask me if Erika’s tucking or something like that because there are some things I can’t lie about.” Did anyone even ask her something about that? How long was she sitting on that line? This was very out of character for Lisa. It didn’t even fit into the context of the situation. At all. Why would the very vocal LGBTQ supporter make this remark?
In a story line that absolutely, positively, categorically will not die, #puppygate has yet to be resolved. As Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has shown us, some things can definitely go past their expiration date. Viewers are well aware Lisa Vanderpump has been targeted for the majority of the season because
the other ladies don’t want to discuss their legal issues of a mixed-breed chihuahua. I think we can all agree the dog has been over it for quite some time now.
The drama continues regarding who is at fault for bringing #puppygate into the spotlight. Whomever it was, I would like to have a word because it has become excessive. We are still in the dark over the person who dropped the dog off at a kill shelter, which really should be the problem at hand. Anyohmygodcanwepleasemoveon, after most of Lisa V.’s friendships within the cast have been terminated, her credibility remains questioned by her former pals. Fans of RHOBH saw Lisa undergo a lie detector test in the last episode, in an effort to clear her name. Lisa addresses why she submitted to the test, and her relationships going forward.
Whether you side with Lisa Vanderpump or not, just about everyone was shook watching her strap in for lie detector test during last week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills episode. Talk about ending with a cliffhanger!
Thankfully last night’s RHOBH episode picked up right where that left off. Lisa had
her sidekick John Sessa by her side as she answered the questions that he submitted. He even threw in a super shady question about Dorit Kemsley’s constantly changing face and accent. Nevertheless, the polygraph expert concluded that Lisa was being one hundred percent honest in regard to the RadarOnline drama. So, what does flip-flopper Camille Grammer think of the lie detector test?
Congratulations Camille Grammer – you’ve officially broken free of Kelsey and restarted your life with a new man by getting married on last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. Gorgeous wedding! Too bad you dragged your way back Kelsey personality along with you for the ride in the clown car to David C. Meyer.
Oh, a lie detector test. Is that what we’re doing now instead of printing out 99 point font textestessss to prove our innocence? I feel like I need to write this portion of the recap in Comic Sans font, because surely this must be some British Humor! Now I’m still team Lisa Vanderpump, but lady – I cannot sit back and allow John Sessa to carry the Pom-Shield and become the defacto Kyle Richards: professional sidekick, stand-in kitchen remodel viewer, and mouthpiece of menace. John Sessa (and his barely buttoned shirt) needs to stick to training puppies to bite PK and leave the Housewives stuff to the big dogs.
