Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was all about “puppy gate” and it’s fall-out. I cannot believe that I am still writing about Dorit Kemsley’s botched puppy adoption. Dorit should have returned the puppy to Vanderpump Dogs, but instead re-homed Lucy Lucy Apple Juice. The pup ended up in a shelter. All because Dorit didn’t
read abide by the adoption contract. Thanks a bunch, Dorit! A tabloid ran with the story, and the Beverly Hills Housewives decided that Lisa Vanderpump leaked the information about Dorit’s misdeed.
Kyle Richards confronted her long-time bestie and accused Lisa of lying when she denied talking to the tabloid. The confrontation was brutal and hard to watch. Lisa’s enraged husband, Ken Todd, ordered Kyle out of idyllic Villa Rosa. And just like that, the friendship between Kyle and Lisa was done.
Wedding bells are ringing, y’all. It seems like most of the Vanderpump Rules cast has found a significant other. Joining the
future divorce marriage club will be Lala Kent and HER MAN, Randall Emmett. Together for several years now, Lala and Rand have endured trying times in their relationship, traveling the peaks and valleys of love. They were engaged to be wed in 2018 and Lala is already planning the festivities. And we all know how much Bravo loves a tragedy sophisticated marriage ceremony.
Fans have certainly seen their share of wedding spin-off shows. NeNe Leakes had one. Kandi Burruss also shared her journey to the altar. Kim Zolciak got an entire show after her bride-to-be antics were featured. Now there is speculation that Randall and Lala have something going on behind the scenes. Thanks to social media and
desperation the desire to tease, viewers are wondering if Lala and Randall are filming a little spinoff of their own.
It’s official, Vanderpump Rules fans– Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor are hitched! The couple made it official on June 29 and got married at the Kentucky Castle. Nearly every Pumps Rules star was at the wedding. Tom Schwartz and Tom Sandoval performed “best men” duties, while Lala’s fiancé, Randall Emmett, and SUR manager Peter Madrigal stood up for Jax. Katie Maloney attended Brittany as her matron of honor. Lala Kent, Ariana Madix, Scheana Marie, Stassi Schroeder and Kristin Doute served as members of the bridal party. Other Bravo guests included former Summer House stars Stephen McGee and Lauren Wirkus and Southern Charm star Shep Rose.
John Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, are such fans of the show that they were invited to the wedding. Alas, the superstars didn’t attend. Can you imagine if they had been there, and John serenaded the couple at their reception?
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Cauchi. Cauchi is Jax Taylor’s actual last name in case anyone forgot. And, yes, Jax and Brittany Cartwright tied the knot during a weekend-long extravaganza in a Kentucky castle.
Every single Vanderpump Rules cast member was a part of the wedding. Well, except for James Kennedy, Raquel Leviss, and Billie Lee, who were not invited, obviously. Other than that, Kentucky was full of Bravolebrities.
Lisa Vanderpump’s life lately has been filled with both sorrow and stress. She made the decision to leave Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after her co-stars accused her of leaking Dorit Kemsley’s “puppy gate” scandal to the tabloids. A pup adopted by Dorit and PK Kemsley nipped their children. Of course, if Dorit had read the adoption contract, she wouldn’t have re-homed the puppy herself, but returned it directly to Vanderpump Dogs. The puppy wouldn’t have ended up in a shelter. And there wouldn’t have been a “puppy gate” scandal. But here we are. Many thanks, Dorit.
Lisa even took a lie detector test to prove her innocence. And when former best friend Kyle Richards came to Villa Rosa to confront Lisa about leaking Dorit’s story, it was the end of their long-time friendship. I will never forget Lisa’s husband, Ken Todd, yelling “Goodbye, Kyle!” as he banished Kyle from Villa Rosa.
Last night the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills traveled to France to visit glorious Provence. Of course these women couldn’t just enjoy the sites and each other’s company, and a new Lisa was thrown under the Peugeot wheels!
Here we are at the Chateau Ventoux, which according to Lisa Rinna is “like Downton France Abbey” except in France an Abbey is a nunnery, so LOL. (If I’m wrong here don’t bother correcting me because I like my joke). The rooms are all beautiful. The surroundings are lush. And unlike when PK smothers her with potato chip crumbs and calls it a blanket, Dorit Kemsley feels like a princess. A real live European princess, who any moment will be woken from this nightmare by a prince who doesn’t have financial problems and will carpet their castle in athleisure wear made by Givenchy and Beverly Reach. Life, really will have purpose for this girl from London, Connecticut.
After much speculation, and what seems like a million discussions about “puppy gate,” Lisa Vanderpump made it official and quit the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She didn’t even attend the reunion, depriving her
former friends enemies the chance to attack again on camera. Still, I would have liked to see a calm, cool, and collected LVP at the reunion, chilling on a couch next to Lucy Lucy Apple Juice.
If we have learned anything from ‘puppy gate,” it is that no one should adopt a dog and ignore what the rules are in the adoption contract. Dorit Kemsley didn’t return Lucy, she instead allegedly
re-homed dropped Lucy at a shelter. Most of the drama from this season resulted from this act. Who leaked the story about Dorit and Lucy to the tabloids? Of course, most of the RHOBH Housewives believed it was Lisa, even though she passed a lie detector test. Was Lisa using Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave to spread the story about Dorit? Teddi, you may have heard, specializes in accountability. Sometimes.
The times are certainly changing on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Lisa Vanderpump quit the show and skipped the reunion. The “puppy gate” scandal spelled the death knell of the longtime friendship between Kyle Richards and Lisa. In case you have been living under a rock, here is a quick update. Dorit Kemsley adopted a dog from Vanderpump Dogs, and the dog nipped her husband PK Kemsley and their children. Rather than return the puppy like she was required to in the adoption contract, Dorit re-homed poor Lucy Lucy Apple Juice. Lucy eventually wound up in a kill shelter. Perhaps Dorit should have re-homed PK instead?
When an article about Dorit’s actions hits the tabloids, Lisa was blamed for leaking the story. Kyle went to Villa Rosa to tell Lisa that all the Beverly Hills Housewives believed that Lisa leaked the story and that she is a liar. The terrible argument between Lisa, Kyle, and Lisa’s husband Ken Todd resulted in Kyle being banned from Villa Rosa. “Goodbye Kyle!” Ken bellowed as Kyle was told to leave the premises. She is lucky that Hanky and Panky didn’t try to avenge their owner.
