Last night the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills finally got the bloody confrontation they’ve been snarling for all season, but more importantly someone finally called Dorit Kemsley out on being a fraudster!
Lisa Vanderpump unhelpfully extracted herself from this mess, then Camille Grammer‘s house burned down so the planned confrontation in France was ruined, and these women have been floundering for what to do. It’s not like they can just go live interesting lives with earnest drama. No, they have to pretend their lives are perfect, and have a target for phony argument. They tried with Erika Jayne last week, but Erika took a cue from LVP and simply dismissed them, but back in Beverly Hills there is still Camille….
I hate to be a meanie pants, but was there anything more delightfully Camille Grammer than learning that Camille Grammer is actually close friends with someone PK Kemsley owes over a million dollars to? In a way it came at a rather disappointing time, as the last couple episodes I’ve actually kind of enjoyed Dorit, and not even in a ‘what a terribly amazing imbecile of a character’ she is kind of way, but sincerely.
Tonight the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills are still terrorizing Provence with their hideous drama, and after a drunken night out led to some regrettable accusations, Erika Girardi is keeping her distance from Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and Kyle Richards.
Teddi and Kyle have no recollection of calling Erika a buzzkill and accusing her of not wanting to be their friend, until resident shit-stirrer Lisa Rinna swoops in with her swizzle stick of bad intentions. Feeling guilty, Teddi apologizes to Erika, but Erika doesn’t understand where Teddi’s sudden aggressiveness is stemming from. Perhaps, just perhaps, Erika is starting to see a correlation between the way she’s being iced out, and the way Lisa Vanderpump was?
What can be said about last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills except yeah, Kyle Richards is THE WORST.
I’m honestly not surprised the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills (led by Kyle and her partner in wine Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave) found a target to replace Lisa Vanderpump and Camille Grammer – I’m actually surprised that target was Erika Girardi. Erika always seems so disconnected and the other women kowtowed by her aloofness, which I suppose, in turn, is why she found herself in the crosshairs of these popularity obsessed middle-aged mean girls the second she opened up a bit.
Tonight the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills trip to France takes a turn for the worse when Erika Jayne feels bullied by the other women.
When will everyone on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills learn that Kyle Richards is a viper who must always be putting other women down in order to feel better about herself? Now that she’s finally succeeded in chasing Lisa Vanderpump off the show, it was only a matter of time before Kyle found a new target. And this is all the more reason why LVP needed to stick around!
Brandi Glanville makes great reality TV. Exhibit A is her recent iconic return to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Aside from the gut-wrentching “Goodbye, Kyle!” scene, she and Denise Richards cheers-ing together on screen was the most exciting thing to happen on Season 9. Now there’s talk of her return to the series in a more permanent capacity. Of course, Kyle Richards has some thoughts.
Kyle and Brandi were not the best of friends during Brandi’s time on the show. Remember when Brandi made her debut in crutches and Kyle and Kim Richards tried to hide them? They’ve come a long way. Gone are the days of accusing each other of smuggling tabloids and having sisters who use meth. Now with confirmation of the departure of Lisa Vanderpump, there is a gaping hole room again for a true reality TV veteran on RHOBH. Her return would definitely shake things up. It might even be making some women nervous.
Kyle Richards and Kim Richards have a unique relationship among Real Housewives–they are the only sisters who have ever starred on a Housewife show together. For five seasons of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, we watched Kyle and Kim fight, make up and fight some more. Their challenging sibling relationship was painful to watch at times, almost making the audience feel like voyeurs to a family psychodrama we weren’t sure we should be watching.
The complicated history of the Sisters Richards would be enough to fill a show all of their own. Kim has made sporadic appearances on RHOBH since leaving the show after Season 5 and there have been occasional rumors about her returning as a cast member. Kyle recently spoke out about Kim’s days as a Housewife, her sobriety–and her possible return to the show.
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.
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.
