Kyle Richards is having quite the season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I say that because she’s known for being front and center in most of the drama. And this year? Not so much. She’s started to bond with sophomore housewife Garcelle Beauvais. And it doesn’t hurt that sister Kathy Hilton has joined and made us love Kyle just a little bit with how cute their sisterly relationship is. Plus, I loved that Kathy dished on Kyle’s childhood nickname – Doogie. It’s been hard for me to call Kyle anything but from that point forward.
But Kyle/Doogie has always had her own drama – mainly her well documented panic on the show. She is highly anxious and highly allergic to a few things. Who could forget her allergic reaction to horses when riding in the Netherlands. And we are familiar with her white knuckled terror flying on planes. I can relate and pop a Xanax every time I fly. But one of Kyle’s well known phobias are bees, in which she is highly allergic. Unfortunately for her, a recent run in with the insects proved to be quite scary.
Erika Jayne. The name on everyone’s lips. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is focusing almost entirely on her messy and horrifying divorce from Tom Girardi. Her costars want answers. They want to know the uncensored truth about the woman they believe to be their friend. There are appalling allegations being made about both she and Tom. If she’s going to keep these friends, she’s going to have to be as transparent as possible. People want answers.
With a new trip coming up, this is a pivotal point for Crystal Kung Minkoff & Sutton Stracke. At every event or trip, they’ve found a way to be at each other’s throats. It’s entertaining to a point, but it can’t go on forever. They’re going to have to learn how to coexist within the group. It might be difficult. They might even have to fake it until they make it. However, the other women might be sick of them going round for round.
Kathy Hiltonisn’t the only Hilton hitting our screens this year! While it may be Kathy’s debut into reality TV, viewers instinctively knew to keep a look out for the airhead moments to come. All thanks to her hotel-heiress daughter, Paris Hilton.
Paris broke our brains when she premiered on The Simple Lifeback in the day. She learned how to do laundry, work in fast food, and what exactly a Walmart is. Bless it. More recently, she gained over 5 million views for a lasagna cooking video posted to YouTube. Our girl has come a long way from making bacon with an iron, that’s for sure.
We’ve seen the teasers. We’ve read the stories. The divorce of ErikaJayne from Tom Girardi is far more complex than she’s led as to believe. The truth is starting to unravel this week. and the ladies are finally getting to react. What did she know? Did she know anything at all? Is their divorce a sham? These are the questions on everyone’s lips following all of these new developments. Only two people know the cold hard truth; Erika & Tom.
Without Kim, Kyle has little to talk about, much to Dorit Kemsley’s chagrin. Because who is Kyle if she isn’t fussing about Kim, her substance abuse issues, and everything she has done to save Kim’s ass. Kim’s is allegedly and hopefully sober right now but financial issues continue to plague her wallet. Kim owes about $90k in taxes and currently lives in an apartment complex in Encino. Once again, it appears Kyle is stepping in to assist and paying Kim’s rent, and once again someone is going to make sure you know about it.
Sonja’s current season on RHONY is interesting, to say the least. She’s had a rough year that includes business setbacks and some major shade from her so-called friends Ramona and Luann de Lesseps. She surprised probably everyone by going from talking about multi-cultural fish in the first episode to being the only one to really understand Eboni K. Williams’point of view on issues about race and microaggressions. And Eboni is returning the favor, swooping in to show Sonjarita some empathy and help her on her quest to find Mr. Right. And I’m living for it.
