There was so much good content to come out of BravoCon, but I can’t help wondering about what we didn’t get to see. What was going down behind the scenes, behind closed doors, and after hours? Even a month after the inaugural event, there are new stories and bits of information trickling out. And I hope the tidbits just keep on coming.
On a recent Watch What Happens Live After Show episode, Kenya Moore and Andy Cohen dished on the weekend.
Is anyone else excited to see what Season 10 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will be like? I will admit that I am having a tough time envisioning a show without Lisa Vanderpump, mini-ponies, and swans keeping watch at Villa Rosa.
While we may have lost Lisa, we are gaining two newbies. Sutton Stracke, who is already friends with RHOBH star Lisa Rinna, is joining the franchise along with actress Garcelle Beauvais.
Harry Hamlin is definitely one of the most low-key House Husbands. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna’s hubby is not one for drama or publicity. He is not a lawsuit lightning rod like PK Kemsley. Or a shameless business promoter like Mauricio Umansky. Harry pops up on the show on occasion, but avoids Lisa’s pot-stirring shenanigans. Maybe Harry is trying to protect his image as a serious actor. Lest we forget, Harry has appeared on LA Law and Mad Men and he also starred in the landmark film Making Love.
You have to wonder what Harry thinks about his lovely bride being on RHOBH. Lisa is a notorious attention seeker, who has acted as an unwilling Kim Richard’s’ sobriety counselor, has performed stripper moves on tables and makes tasteless jokes about her “pill bag.” To put it nicely, Mrs. Hamlin can be a handful. However, it is clear that Harry loves her anyway. Part of the secret of the success of their marriage might be that Harry chooses not to know everything about Lisa–and their daughters.
We’ve all heard the rumors that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is “boring” without Lisa Vanderpump on the show. This is a surprise to no one because, let’s be honest, the show was “boring” for a few seasons after Brandi Glanville left. And, until it got dragged out for far too long, puppygate was actually the most excitement on the show in a while.
Now, LVP’s frienemy Lisa Rinna is strongly implying that Vanderpump was responsible for leaking the rumors. Lisa Vanderpump, leaking a story to the press? She has never done that…
You might be wondering why the media won’t give up on Lisa Vanderpump and anything to do with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The simple fact is, the loss of Lisa is a huge blow to the franchise. Whether you love Lisa or consider her the mind-manipulating force behind orchestrated canine scandals, you are kidding yourself if you think it’s over.
When Lisa left the show, she also left her friendships in the dust. She said buh-bye to her close relationship with Kyle Richards after Bangs visited Lisa’s house to accuse her of lying. Lisa was never particularly close to Erika Jayne, because no one gets close to a riddle wrapped in migraines and designer sneakers. And let’s be honest, who really wants to be friends with Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave? So what does that mean for the rest of the gang? Well, Lisa says she is interested in maintaining a friendship with at least one of them. I’m sure it will be totally fine with the other ladies…
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Lisa Rinna and Kim Richards have not always seen eye to eye since being cast members together. Although the two only shared one full season together–season 5–they built up enough mutual animosity to last a lifetime. Kim resented Lisa’s offering up unsolicited advice on her sobriety. Lisa was furious after Kim hinted that she knew scandalous information about hubby Harry Hamlin on the casts’ Amsterdam trip, resulting in Lisa’s epic wine glass breaking tirade.
After Kim left the show, she and Lisa continued to spar when she would pop up as an RHOBH guest. Kim notoriously declining Lisa’s gift of a stuffed bunny for her grandson was one of the many low points in their feud. Lisa continued to meddle in Kim’s sobriety and so on and on and on. Oh, the drama! The two finally called a truce at Kyle Richards’ Halloween bash last season. Although Kim and Lisa are probably not destined to be BFF’s, the civility has seemed to last. Now, the two have a surprising new connection that gives them an added incentive to play nice.
To be honest, I was hoping never to use the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and the word “dog” in the same article again. But the Universe doesn’t care about our plans, so here we are. The holidays are a time for family togetherness and sometimes traveling is involved. Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave recently packed her bump, her husband, and her brood for a quick family excursion. More often than not, our fur babies are watched by a trusted individual or reputable boarding facility.
Most of the time we return from a trip and go back to daily life, but sometimes bad things happen in the interim. Despite preventative measures, a very unfortunate accident occurred and Teddi’s homecoming was anything but normal. Instead of settling back into their regular routine and preparing for Santa, Teddi and her family are dealing with something else entirely.
Sometimes working out 127 hours a week doesn’t provide the results you are looking for. Apparently that was the case for Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Teresa Giudice. Teresa and her bod went through a metamorphosis during her namastay in prison. When the judicial system presented Tre with an extended vacation in jail camp, she decided to get into shape.
Emerging from her cocoon of indictment fit as a fiddle, Teresa continued her physical transformation after the death of her mother. She turned to weightlifting as a tool to deal with the grief of her loss and navigate the role of single mom while husband Joe Giudice was incarcerated. In 2018, Teresa even competed in a bodybuilding competition, taking a third place ribbon for her efforts. Now that Teresa got the body, she needs to keep the body. But she might have found out, the gym just can’t do everything.
