We have come to learn many things about Lisa Rinna during her years as a Housewife. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star loves to stir the pot, deflecting from her own issues at all costs. She is a crafty expert at using others–like Kim Richards—to create storylines. We know she is crazy about her hubby Harry Hamlin. And Lisa loves to promote her daughters’ modeling careers.
Lisa also craves the spotlight, doing everything from performing desperate tabletop stripper moves to playing a vulgar Erika Jayne for Halloween. Mrs. Hamlin veers towards attention-seeking on social media, occasionally trolling controversy, like making fun of people observing Lent. Usually, though, her Instagram posts are all about Rinna. Often in a bikini. Sometimes showing off her questionable dance moves. Lisa takes occasional heat for her swimwear posts, but she has a surprising ally who celebrates her bikini love. None other than fellow exhibitionist Brandi Glanville.
There was no winner in the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills drama. It seems like Season 9 will haunt us forever. It is literally more frightening than Kyle Richards’ new movie. The biggest losers in this game are the fans.
At the risk of sounding theatrical (who, me?), Camille Grammer Meyer rose from the burning ashes of rubble left behind after Dorit Kemsley’s dog was unceremoniously dumped at a
kill shelter. She battled the major players, but saved a special spot in her heart for Dorit. No one was off-limits, not even LVP. When she took on Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave at the finale party it was, dare I say, almost magical. So WHY isn’t Camille a full-time cast member next season? Kyle has denied it was her call that nixed Cammy, but guess who is pulling receipts? Now Real Housewives of Orange County star, Tamra Judge speaks up (why???), and Camille lets her have a dose of the 007.
There was this one time I actually agreed with Brandi Glanville… So we are on about Round 10 in the war of words between former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi and current rival, Tamra Judge. As Real Housewives of Orange County is currently airing, Tamra seems to be keeping busy offscreen too. Busy irritating Brandi, that is.
It began like just another day… The sun came up. Birds sang. Tamra was
running her mouth on social media. She happened to bash Kelly Dodd in an Instagram thread, which isn’t breaking news. You know, because lowkey accusing someone of tossing their mom down a flight of stairs isn’t enough. But then Tamra declared that Kelly is “the new Brandi”. As you might be aware, Brandi is no stranger to mass communication and responded accordingly. Then the two engaged in some rather tense words. Now, much like Kim Richards’ dog with someone’s leg a bone, Brandi isn’t dropping the issue.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Kyle Richards and her sister Kim Richards have had a tumultuous relationship. When Kim was a regular on the show. viewers saw the heartbreaking struggle between the two as they dealt with Kim’s sobriety.
It appeared as though things were going better for Kim, but recent reports indicate that may not be true anymore. And sadly, it appears as though the sisters are no longer on speaking terms.
OH MY! The last Real Housewives of Potomac episode was great. Gizelle Bryant and Karen Huger are at odds again. This is a feud that will NEVER end, and I don’t know that I want it to. It’s kind of fun seeing which one will be messier or shadier each episode. However, I’m slightly concerned about Katie Rost. The preview showed that she goes missing tonight! Someone save this poor girl.
We’re getting a cast trip tonight which means we’re getting tons of drama. Has there ever been a cast trip on Real Housewives history that has no drama? Someone hit us in the comments with those stats. It’s a foregone conclusion at this point that an international trip means global scale showdowns.
What’s going on with Kim Richards? We haven’t heard from the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star lately. With the drama surrounding sister, Kyle, and Lisa Vanderpump, there has been little focus on Kim and her personal struggles. We didn’t see much of Kimbo in Season 11, though she did show to Kyle’s birthday event for her daughter. Viewers recall Kim’s
attempts to avoid a run-in with Lisa Rinna. Poor Lisa still can’t quit the Blue Bunny legacy. Kim and the rest of us moved on about three years ago… But Kim looked great, appeared to be in good health. She didn’t seem too bothered, until she was lectured on the finer points of forgiveness by Denise Richards.
It seems Kim had moved on. She is the grandmother to two and despite a pending lawsuit involving a ghost writer, Kim has been somewhat absent from the media. Recently, Kyle praised RHOBH for “saving Kim’s life“. She credits the show for holding Kim accountable for her actions and unable to “get away from anything”. This might be true, but it’s worth noting Kim didn’t out her private strife with substance abuse. Kim’s battle with addiction was announced in an almost calculating way, during an on-camera feud with Kyle. Since then, Kim has been under a microscope. Her storyline blossomed with tales of a sketchy man, habitual tardiness, and a dog with a taste for blood. After five seasons, Kim stopped filming to regain a solid hold of her life. As many do, Kim suffered a relapse and even had a brush with the law. Now new concerns for Kim have cropped up, and once again her family questions her well-being.
During the past year, former Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino has been more in the public eye. Last summer, she and Jim Bellino announced that they were divorcing. Earlier this year, Alexis made her new relationship with Andy Bohn Instagram official. A short time later, Andy’s estranged wife Andrea Bohn pleaded for media privacy for their children in light of Alexis’ very public romantic announcement. Oh, Alexis!
It seems that all this new public attention may have whetted Alexis’ appetite for the spotlight once again. So what does one do to get back on reality television? As RHOC does not seem to be in any hurry to invite Alexis back, other options had to be explored. Fortunately for Alexis, she has now found her way back to the limelight. Did we ever really doubt that day would come?
The event that Bravo fans have been waiting for is upon us. The first-ever BravoCon is going down November 15-17 in New York City. This announcement came a couple of months ago, but no other information was released until late last week.
The tickets are not on sale, yet, but they will be next week and there are options for different schedules and budgets. Although, the event isn’t cheap, by any means. Will this be the most epic event of all time? Or the reality TV equivalent of the Fyre Festival? Let’s hope for the former.
