Sybil, I mean, Camille Grammer needs an Emmy. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newlywed is pretty much holding down the fort in the drama department. Otherwise, the ladies would continue dragging out, I can’t believe I have to type this again, #puppygate. From feuds with the always accountable Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave to commenting on Lisa Vanderpump’s alleged dental hygiene predicament, Bravo should be throwing diamonds at this woman.
We’ve recently seen Camille’s wedding to David C. Meyer in a lavish trip to Hawaii. After venting to the group about Lisa V.’s absence from the ceremony, an online article pops up where Camille basically says it was no biggie Lisa ditched the nuptials. So is Camille trying to soften the potential reunion blow? Or is she a genuine friend to
anyone Lisa V.? This woman must have legs of steel, with all of her backpedaling.
This season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been a little odd, to say the least. The Puppy Gate storyline endlessly dominated the first part of the season and resulted in Lisa Vanderpump’s integrity being called into question. After being accused of planting a Radar Online story about Dorit Kemsley dropping off adopted dog Lucy at a shelter– and later being confronted by Kyle Richards about it–Lisa largely stopped filming with the other women.
Queen Lisa has missed a cast camping trip, Camille Grammer’s bridal shower–and even her Hawaiian wedding–which is almost unprecedented in Housewife history. Housewives are expected to show up for events–unless, of course, you are filming a cheesy Hallmark movie like Denise Richards! Then you get a pass. Although Lisa has not continued filming with the other women, she definitely has opinions about them–and the whole debacle of Puppy Gate.
Leave it to the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills to drag out a fight from two years ago, along with a ghost of Housewives past to celebrate Halloween, and also because well, without Lisa Vanderpump what else do they have to talk about? I mean they have stuff to talk about, they just won’t.
It’s the final morning in Hawaii, the day after Camille Grammer tied the knot a second time, and finally, at long last, we get our first sighting of The Agency apparel. I’ve been waiting all of the Hawaii trip – looking for swim trunks, hats, custom-ordered shot glasses, a bridesmaids gown… and on the last breakfast Mauricio Umansky finally just shows up to brunch wearing an Agency t-shirt.
Tonight is a jam packed episode of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. The episode begins with the ladies still in Hawaii at Camille Grammer‘s wedding, but by the end of the episode the nightmare is in Kyle Richards‘ backyard.
Camille’s wedding may be a happy ending for her, but she’s not doing feeling angry that Lisa Vanderpump didn’t show up. Camille vents her frustrations to the other women who completely agree. Meanwhile Dorit Kemsley and Lisa Rinna begin to feel angry at Camille for being two-faced when they find out she’s telling LVP one thing to her face while saying another behind her back! And lemme guess betrayed because Dorit never stops feeling betrayed.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Kim Richards seems to be enjoying her life lately. But that has not always been the case as Kim struggled with her sobriety, and legal issues. Kim had an alcohol-fueled breakdown at the Beverly Hills Hotel in April of 2015 and was charged with public intoxication, resisting arrest, and battery on a police officer. Later that year, the former child star tried to shoplift two carts of merchandise from Target. Who doesn’t love Target?
Kim was not sentenced to jail, but was granted probation, and had to attend AA meetings and perform community service. She finally completed her probation in September of 2018. Kim also endured the passing of her ex-husband Marty Brinson, who was her best friend, in 2016. They share a daughter, Brooke Wiederhorn.
This week’s episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills offered a little bit of everything. An impractical designer car, Erika Jayne kneed in the head(!), an ugly political debate and the story of the courageous survival of Lisa Rinna’s mother Lois Rinna at the hands of a serial killer. And for good measure, surprise cameo appearances by Kim Richards and Kathy Hilton. Whew! It seems like Bravo threw in everything but the kitchen sink. Only because they probably couldn’t salvage it from Lisa Vanderpump’s high end kitchen remodel!
One thing we did not see, however, was LVP interacting with the rest of the cast. She was a no show at Camille Grammer’s bridal shower and the rest of the ladies, of course, questioned her absence. These days, it seems that no one from the cast is in Camp Vanderpump. However, one former Housewife is showing her love for LVP and she isn’t shy about expressing her opinions about the rest of the cast, either.
Last night was the weirdest, most insanely random episode of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills ever! This is RHOBH without a common enemy to direct all their wrath and delusions onto. I dunno — I loved it!
Dorit Kemsley shows up in a redneck tuxedo to Denise Richards‘ house to drink double vodka tonics at 2 in the afternoon and talk motherhood. (Denise had water since she had to pick her daughter up from school) Ha! Motherhood was about 2% of their conversation the rest was all Lisa Vanderpump. Denise liked Dorit immediately when she met her, and found her very warm and kind. That’s Dorit’s ruse — everyone feels that way about her. Initially.
Denise counsels Hollywood neophyte Dorit about handling close friends betraying you to the tabloids. When Denise was going through her divorce she actually used to run sting operations on confidantes by sharing something with them to see if it would wind up in the press, and that was how she knew who was a true friend. Despite LVP ruining her reputation, eviscerating her belief in friends, and making her question all of humanity, Dorit still wants their friendship back. Denise believes that – with time – Dorit can eventually forgive her.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has had one of the most interesting casts of any of the Housewife shows-from actual millionaires to poseurs and real-life actresses. Since the show began in 2010, 17 ladies have been cast as full-time Housewives. Two OG’s from Season 1 remain-Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump (we will see what happens after this season, though)! And snarky Camille Grammer has been either a Friend of or Guest on every season but one after leaving as a full-time Housewife after Season 2.
This season, two other former Housewives are coming back for at least one appearance. And they happen to be two of the most talked about-and polarizing-cast members of any of the Housewife shows-former child star Kim Richards and volatile, often-acts-like-a-child Brandi Glanville. And current cast member Erika Jayne recently shared her thoughts about the return of Kim and Brandi.
