It could be said, where Housewives go, trouble often follows. Few Housewives have gotten themselves into as many legal pickles as former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards. In April of 2015, Kim was arrested for creating a disturbance at the Beverly Hills Hotel, with charges against her ranging from trespassing to battery on a police officer. In August of the same year, Kim was arrested for shoplifting at a Van Nuys Target. Kim eventually pled guilty in the Beverly Hills case and pled no contest to petty theft in the Target case.
In 2018, Kim settled a dog bite lawsuit with her former stylist. Kim was also sued in a second dog bite case. In her latest legal adventure (as far as we know!), Kim was sued by a ghostwriter for $9,999 in July of this year. The writer, Alison Kingsley Baker, claimed Kim owed her for services rendered. Now, there is an update in the case. And surprise, surprise–the case did not go in Kim’s favor.
You don’t know what you have until it’s gone, right? At least that’s how I feel about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Eileen Davidson. She didn’t have the most exciting storylines when she was on RHOBH, but I can’t help missing her perspective during some lackluster seasons.
At least Eileen is still keeping up with the show and its latest storylines. On last night’s Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen asked Eileen for opinions on the RHOBH hot topics. And, yes, he started with puppygate. The storyline that will never end.
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.
