Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is a lot of things. Teddi is a mother, with a current bun in the oven. She is a holder of all things accountable. And she is one of the stars of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. What Teddi is not is a fashion model. By this I mean, her career has not centered around having cigs for breakfast and catching the red eye to Milan to serve as a high end designer’s muse.
Teddi recently did her BFF Kyle Richards a favor. Kyle debuted a breathtaking collection of
bedsheets caftans that were part of her Kyle + Shahida line at New York Fashion Week. Because Kyle is no dummy and wanted to utilize every moment of exposure, she adorned her co-stars in various prints and sent them down the catwalk. Newly pregnant Teddi delighted in helping her friend and sailed down the runway in a stunning robe. I’m pretty sure it was a robe… Turns out, her walk might have caught more attention than the frock she was wearing,
Oh Dorinda Medley and Sonja Morgan, it’s time to make it nice! The stars of Real Housewives of New York made a major faux pas at New York Fashion Week. Neither can be accused of keeping quiet when something is on their mind. Dorinda has had many alcohol-fueled debates with her co-stars. Lady Morgan is the resident poster child for AARP candidates wanting to live their twilight years to the fullest. That’s all fine and dandy until their observations about life spill over into the general population.
Sonja and Dorinda were at NYFW to catch their girl, Tinsley Mortimer in a runway show. Tins was walking for designer Garo Faro. You might remember Garo’s designs from his stint on Project Runway. As the two RHONY vets sat in the front row, they chatted throughout the show. Unfortunately, bits of their conversation was recorded. Their candid remarks about some of the models have now opened the door for a lesson in social etiquette, acceptance, or just keeping your mouth shut.
She finally has a storyline! Congratulations to Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and Edwin Arroyave! They are expecting their third child together.
And, yes, Teddi is currently filming Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, so we should all brace ourselves for a pregnancy announcement episode and most likely some sort of fitness-related gender reveal. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if she made everyone hike to the top of a mountain to reveal if she’s having a boy or a girl.
Everyone seems exhausted from “speculating” about anything to do with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. At this point, loyal fans are in a holding pattern with the current cast members. It has become a love them or hate them situation after Season 9 drama unearthed financial and legal issues. Issues people may or may not have been trying to hide… Were viewers duped into a storyline involving a defenseless animal while the real news was swept under the rug? Signs definitely seem to point in that direction.
Erika Jayne had a relatively low key season. That might be a nice way of saying, she looked bored the entire time. Erika has joined co-stars Dorit Kemsley and Kyle Richards in the “Honey, what should I wear to court today?” club. Her husband, Tom Girardi, has been involved in a dispute over a measly $15 million. Petty cash! Still, Erika wasn’t phased by Tom’s litigious dance, until she got her own date with a judge. But look, all the cool kids are hanging out with their legal teams, so who cares? Since the core cast has now been disintegrated thanks to #puppygate, we have two new ladies making their debut next year. Erika’s return has been up for debate, but now we finally have some answers.
Well, well, what do we have here? Does Kyle Richards have competition for the title of “Queen” on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Is the monarchy about to be overthrown? Let’s face it, the HBIC role is currently held by Kyle, but it seems to be by default. After Lisa Vanderpump quit the show, Kyle was blessed with the queen moniker by Erika Jayne at the Season 9 reunion. However, not one but two new cast members joining the ladies may keep Kyle’s reign brief. Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke are locked in and about to join the wild ride of reality television. At least the newbies are coming on board at the same time, so they have that in common. Another trait they share is being friends with Lisa Rinna.
Ah Rinna, what would we do without you? We would miss your at-home spa treatments. We would suffer in the wake of losing your knee-slapping hilarity. And I would personally miss the occasional appearance of Harry Hamlin. If you recall, Lisa is also old school friends with Denise Richards. They have shared appearances on television shows and maybe a boyfriend as well. This could lead to an interesting dynamic heading into the 10th RHOBH season. Now that Lisa could have a “team”, what does that mean for Queen Kyle? Is there a new sheriff in town after all?
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.
The war of words rages on between Kyle Richards and Camille Grammer.
Backstage at the launch of her new fashion line during New York Fashion Week, Kyle once again denied that she’s the reason Camille isn’t returning for Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Andy Cohen is finally back from vacation and ready to spill the tea!
Earlier this week, the Bravo boss returned to the airwaves with his SiriusXM show, Andy Cohen Live on Radio Andy to comment on the casting of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newbies Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke.
