Earlier this week, Eileen was a guest on Watch What Happens Live. Andy Cohen asked for her opinions on the RHOBH hot topics, which included a lot of Lisa Vanderpump talk, of course. Eileen said it was a “pussy move” for Lisa to just stop filming, skip the reunion, and quit the show. A few days later, Lisa clapped back on social media.
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.
New York Fashion Week was the place to be for reality TV star sightings. Tinsley Mortimer returned to the runway as a model. Real Houswives of New York stars Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, and Dorinda Medley were on hand to support. Sonja even hosted a fashion show of her own.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills OG Kyle Richards had her first fashion week show. Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemsley, Lisa Rinna, and Denise Richards had a great time walking in Kyle’s show. On the other hand, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave was not happy about her reception at fashion week. She admitted that she cried in response to the criticism about her walk, which is odd since she didn’t cry when Kyle made fun of it on RHOBH last season.
Before 2019, Felicity Huffman was best known as one of America’s most celebrated actresses. The Emmy Award winner and Academy Award nominee was renowned for her iconic role as Lynette Scavo on the campy television show Desperate Housewives. And for her touching turn as a transgender woman in the film Transamerica.
In March of this year, Felicity took on a role she probably never imagined she would be playing. She became the face of the notorious college admissions scandal, along with actress Lori Loughlin. Felicity pled guilty to fraud for paying $15,000 to boost her daughter’s SAT scores. She was just sentenced to 14 days in jail, one year of probation, 250 hours of community service and fined $30,000. Obviously, casting Felicity at this point might be a bit tricky, at least until she completes her sentence.
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.
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?
