The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Lisa Rinna and Kim Richards have not always seen eye to eye since being cast members together. Although the two only shared one full season together–season 5–they built up enough mutual animosity to last a lifetime. Kim resented Lisa’s offering up unsolicited advice on her sobriety. Lisa was furious after Kim hinted that she knew scandalous information about hubby Harry Hamlin on the casts’ Amsterdam trip, resulting in Lisa’s epic wine glass breaking tirade.
After Kim left the show, she and Lisa continued to spar when she would pop up as an RHOBH guest. Kim notoriously declining Lisa’s gift of a stuffed bunny for her grandson was one of the many low points in their feud. Lisa continued to meddle in Kim’s sobriety and so on and on and on. Oh, the drama! The two finally called a truce at Kyle Richards’ Halloween bash last season. Although Kim and Lisa are probably not destined to be BFF’s, the civility has seemed to last. Now, the two have a surprising new connection that gives them an added incentive to play nice.
Looks like Kyle Richards has a new reason to be thankful this holiday season! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star can breathe a little easier and just in time for the new season to begin. As everyone with internet access knows, Kyle’s husband, Mauricio Umansky has been embroiled in a very nasty suit regarding a real estate property in Malibu, California. Mauricio and The Agency were handling the sale of the luxury property but it quickly became quite a mess.
In 2015 Mo was hired by a company to sell the substantial property. Sweetwater Malibu, under ownership of Vice President of Equatorial Guinea, Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, determined Mauricio allegedly misled them into selling the mansion. The home was seized by the government because Teodoro “allegedly used funds stolen from his home country”. The mansion was purchased by someone who flipped the property with Mauricio for a nice little chunk of change. Then the shit hit the fan and Mauricio has been in the Litigation Club with the rest of the kids ever since. Until now, that is.
Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd hosted the Vanderpump Dogs Gala last week in Los Angeles. “Coincidentally” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast members are currently on their cast trip in Rome. Try to convince me that timing is an accident. Now, everyone has a perfectly acceptable excuse for not attending the event/supporting the cause.
Nevertheless, there were some RHOBH alums in the house. Get ready for this one: Kim Richards was there… wearing what looked like the choker she had on from the Season 1 finale. You know, the necklace from that infamous scene where she accused Kyle Richards of stealing her goddamned house in the back of a limo. I would love to know how Kyle felt about Kim attending the event. Could Kim be trying to pull a Parent Trap and unite Lisa and Kyle? She does want them to make up, after all. RHOBH OG and eternal shit-stirrer Camille Grammer attended. I guess that bad blood with LVP was short-lived.
And all the congregation said, DUH! Camille Grammer Meyer is having a moment, y’all. But, isn’t that the idea? When Real Housewives of Beverly Hills started getting slammed for the alleged boring season currently being filmed, instead of crawling on their hands and knees to Lisa Vanderpump, Bravo crawled to Camille. But she wasn’t the only one brought in to liven up the
snoozefest ladies, Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards got the call as well.
Apparently the red carpet was not rolled out for Camille’s return. That isn’t surprising because handlers carry it exclusively for Kyle Richards so her tiny sacred feet never directly touch the ground. Kidding! Kind of. Technically Camille isn’t supposed to be back at all. She famously tried to bust #puppygate and Dorit Kemsley’s financial embarrassment wide open last season. That didn’t exactly make her popular with the rest of the gang. But “the gang” proved to be failing on their own, so heeeeeeeeere’s Cammy! Now that she is back at work, is she getting the job done? All signs point to yes because Camille says the drama is falling on her shoulders. Get that check, girl.
Although Camille Grammer is a super polarizing figure among the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans, we are (pretty much) all on the same page when it comes to Kelsey Grammer. He is one of the worst husbands in Real Housewives history. We will never forget him cheating on Camille during Season 1. Since then, Camille has shared that they don’t talk, instead parenting their children through a third party. She also said that he never contacted her when her home burned to the ground in the wildfires.
I can’t decide if Kelsey is a worse husband or a worse ex. Either way, he’s one of the worst. Recently, he referred to Camille as “pathetic” and claimed that she asked for a divorce at his mother’s funeral. Now, Camille’s former RHOBH costar Kim Richards is weighing in on their never-ending drama.
Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards left the show back in 2015. Since then, Kim has popped up as a guest on most subsequent seasons, including the upcoming season 10. During her stint on the show, it was almost painful to watch Kim at times, as viewers saw her struggle with substance abuse issues and odd family dynamics, especially with her sister Kyle Richards.
Recently, there have been rumblings that Kim has been at work on her autobiography. The first glimmers of this possibility came up when Kim was sued by a ghostwriter in July for $10,000. The case was settled in September with Kim agreeing to pay $5,075. Kim was one of the attendees at BravoCon last weekend and sat in on a Real Housewives OG panel. At the convention, Kim confirmed what we have suspected–she is writing a book.
Bravo, wanted the drama and got the drama. Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with the core cast on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. After rumors of a dud season surfaced, executives have
begged called Camille Grammer back onto the front lines. As an added bonus, we learned Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards will be providing back up support.
The returning ladies have allegedly fallen victim to “getting along”, if you believe their side of the story. This was their season to break free from the
popularity burden of Lisa Vanderpump, who apparently was the source of endless betrayal and arguments amongst the group. After Lisa’s departure, Bangs Kyle Richards and crew were transported to a magical place of fairies and flying dolphins, with nary an unkind word in sight. That’s just not going to work, darling. With hopes of spicing up the episodes, Brandi and Camille are already earning their checks. Currently, their war of words is going down on Twitter. Fortunately for fans of the show, the former full-time stars know their roles and know them well.
