The prettiest mess there ever was. Erika Jayne’s split from husband Tom Girardi is some Real Housewives of Beverly Hills drama we’ve been asking for. Despite being the most watched franchise of 2020, fans are still begging for some intrigue from this cast. The gang-up on Lisa Vanderpump two seasons back followed by the communal Denise Richards drag has been exhausting. Erika to the rescue!
grifters Giardi’s have caught themselves in a pretty impressive bind. It started with Erika filing for divorce in November. Then we all learned about the renewed fraud allegations against Tommy. But it’s expensive to be Erika, and she has since demanded alimony from her elderly soon-to-be-ex-. Uh. Which part of this being burn victim and orphanage money does she not understand?
When Real Housewives of Beverly Hills paused production in November, the word on the street (I.e. the internet) was that there was a positive covid test from a member of the production team. Then, Kyle Richards started drop some not-at-all-subtle hints that she had coronavirus on Thanksgiving when she publicly thanked Teddi Mellencamp for bringing Thanksgiving dinner for her family since Kyle was too sick to cook.
Does anyone actually believe that Kyle was going to cook a whole Thanksgiving dinner?
Soon after Kyle posted that, it was reported that Kyle, Kyle’s sister Kathy Hilton, and Dorit Kemsley all have coronavirus. However, it’s been reported that they do not have severe symptoms and we are wishing them all the best.
Apparently, there are rumors going around that Brandi Glanville had a threesome with her BFF Kim Richards. This gossip started to circulate in response to Denise Richards telling the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast that Brandi also claimed she’s had sex with someone else in the group.
Brandi has denied this, but, apparently, Kim is still mad at her. It’s unclear if she’s upset for Brandi giving more life to the rumors by denying them instead of just letting them blow over. Or maybe Kim thinks Brandi had a hand in starting the rumors, which normally does seem like a stunt Brandi would pull, but on her actual best friend? That’s very unlikely. Why would she want to upset Kim and her family (I.e. Kyle Richards and Kathy Hilton who are current cast members that probably won’t film with Brandi at this point)?
Recently, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills shut down production on Season 11 due to a positive covid test. It seemed like it might have been a member of the production crew who had the virus, which could still be the case, but now it’s been reported that three cast members contracted the virus.
Kyle Richards hinted that she had coronavirus on Thanksgiving when she posted an Instagram Story thanking Teddi Mellencamp for dropping off food for her family because she was feeling sick. So much for subtlety. We all assumed Kyle had the virus based on that post.
Erika Jayne usually gets the “enigma” label on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But when you look at the literal definition of enigma, “a person or thing that is mysterious, puzzling, or difficult to understand”, it doesn’t really apply to Erika. Because one thing she isn’t is complex. But you know who really deserves the title of enigma?
Dorit Kemsley is an enigma wrapped in lawsuits and rental properties. Dorit wears a coat of many colors. She is a wife and mother. She is fashion maven. But above all else, Dorit is a… DESIGNER. Need a bathing suit made of hankies? Dorit is there for you. Need a room to transport you to the Isle of Capri? Dorit can handle that too. Now Dorit is lending her gift to another venture. Friends, Dorit is answering the prayers of brides everywhere. STEP ASIDE, Vera Wang, for Dorit Kemsley has entered the group chat.
Dana Wilkey was not featured on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for very long, but what she lacked in screen time, she made up with tiny iconic moments. Despite efforts to weave herself into the tapestry of the group, Dana never reached “friend of” status, but many viewers will never forget Dana and her
desperation $25,000k sunglasses.
After her brief stint on RHBOH, Dana caught some legal cases. She was sued for fraud in 2011 and indicted on fraud charges in 2014. Accusations included conspiracy to commit wire fraud, wire fraud and aiding and abetting, and false statements to government agents. Sounds like she would fit in with most cast members, amirite? Well, Dana finally found a way to become a Housewife – even if it was just for one glorious night.
Kyle Richards has faced her fair share of challenges. Being an original member of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast has it’s advantages and disadvantages. For many years, Kyle’s sister, Kim Richards was holding a diamond, along with her sibling. Unfortunately Kim’s past issues with substance abuse wound up being her downfall from the show, and consequently Kyle’s storyline went out the door with her.
Kyle has always had a curious relationship with her sisters. I’m not sure we will ever be privy to the sordid details surrounding Kim’s goddamned house, that may or may not have been stolen by Kyle. But let’s not forget Kathy Hilton. Kathy has not, will not, and doesn’t plan on taking any of Kyle’s crap. In previous RHOBH seasons, Kyle has almost seemed… intimidated by her older sissy. Now that the streets are saying Kathy might be coming on board, Kyle is
shaking in her boots sharing her reaction to the possibility of having another relative join the crew.
After years of publicly begging to become a Housewife on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it might almost be happening for Tori Spelling.
Apparently, she will join Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 11 in a Friend of the Housewives role. Womp, womp. Then again, I’m sure she could use a dollar or two at this point, given her highly publicized financial struggles.
