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.
She’s baaaaack? Bravo just loves toying with their fans’ emotions, am I right? I don’t think it is out of the question to say viewers may have some concerns about the next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Fan favorite Lisa Vanderpump took a surprising hike off the show while the remaining ladies juggle various legal issues. It has been confirmed two new cast members will join the crew. Lisa Rinna’s friend, Sutton Stracke and model/actress/goddess Garcelle Beauvais will hopefully add a much-needed touch of glamour.
the new queen Kyle Richards is coming back, along with her lapdog BFF Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. Yes, to the delight of everyone, Teddi has been spied with HRH Richards and cameras following them! You have to figure Dorit Kemsley will return because she has bills to pay will require atonement after last year’s #puppygate fiasco. Rinna basically does whatever anyone tells her to do, so we assume there’s been no change in her status. Erika Jayne managed to leave everyone with a question mark. There was a brief buzz that her husband wouldn’t let her film she had quit the show or received a demotion. Now as we wait for final confirmation on the current cast, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Erika has been spotted filming! And the world rejoiced…
Denise Richards made it through her first season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills relatively unscathed. Sure, she talked up her sexual exploits, including the creepy happy-endings massage with an older woman she arranged for hubby Aaron Phypers. Denise also dished on her ex Charlie Sheen bringing a hooker to Thanksgiving dinner. And on occasion, she liked to have a few cocktails and let loose. Really loose. Marital secrets loose.
Despite being a long-time celebrity, Denise did not outwardly appear to have a lot in common with her RHOBH co-stars. She was not prone to stir up drama, for the most part. Except with Camille Grammer. Denise didn’t really want to compete in the fashion game with the other ladies. So what does she have to chat about with her co-stars? After a recent legal settlement, Denise can at least use lawsuits as a conversation starter.
The crown is heavy dahlings – so let’s just leave it where it belongs. Lisa Vanderpump may no longer be a cast member on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills but she’ll always be queen of that show (sorry, Kyle Richards). Lisa walked away after 9 seasons on the show because of puppy-gate, crappy friends, and two real-life losses. Her brother passed away, as we saw on the show, and nine months later her mother, Jean Vanderpump, passed away at 84. She clearly has a lot going on and made the right decision to stay away from the manufactured drama. Besides, she’s better on Vanderpump Rules, where there’s no doubt about who’s boss.
The only good news about RHOBH after Lisa’s exit is that Bravo was forced to shake-up the cast. Sutton Stracke and Garcelle Beauvais have been announced as new housewives. It’s about time Bravo took concrete steps to diversify this show. Perhaps it took LVP’s exit to rethink the direction of the show. Either way, it took a lot for LVP to walk away, and friends of hers have apparently been telling her to leave for years. Now people in her life have been noticing a positive change in Lisa since her departure.
After one of the most talked-about seasons of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to date, viewers want redemption. Many fans of the show were left somewhat bewildered after the wild turn of events. The show took a hard hit after Lisa Vanderpump announced her decision to depart the franchise. While the rest of the cast centered their storylines around Lisa’s alleged and unconfirmed actions, she peaced out for the sake of her sanity. At the Season 9 reunion, Erika Jayne (of all people) crowned Kyle Richards as the new “queen” of RHOBH. Uh-huh.
Word on the street is the sitting queen has a lot of say in casting. Perhaps once you bounce one of the more beloved cast members, you automatically level up? Camille Grammer was on fire in her “friend of” role on the show. She did not bow to Her Majesty and delighted in calling people out. After a wedding, the drama of her home burning to the ground, and her ability to ruffle feathers, it seemed Camille would be guaranteed a full-time slot. When she was effectively cancelled, Cammy alleged it was Kyle who made the call. Kyle has just responded to Camille’s assumptions, but don’t worry, Camille hasn’t finished.
