On the latest edition of Drinking and Tweeting, the former RHOBH pot-stirrer gives her characteristically unfiltered take on The Real Housewives of Orange County and breaks down why so many ‘Wives’ marriages end in divorce — all while wearing a leopard-print nighty, heavily smeared eye makeup and a positively garish trucker hat.
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.
A contestant on Season 4 of Project Runway, Chris placed fourth on the show. He was known for his amazing talent for costume design and gifted us with some of the most creative frocks ever to come down the runway. Chris was long a Bravo favorite, appearing on several of the network’s shows over the last decade.
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…
Poor Kelly Dodd–she somehow seems to be the newest target on the Real Housewives of Orange County. Last year at the reunion, soon-to-be-demoted Vicki Gunvalson more or less accused her of doing cocaine. This season, Vicki, Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador are whispering about Kelly allegedly participating in a “sex train”–a term I had never heard of before. Now I will never be able to listen to the song Midnight Train to Georgia in the same way again. Thanks, ladies!
So far, no one from the cast is really defending Kelly, other than Braunwyn Windham-Burke, who let Kelly know that her castmates were gossiping about her. Fortunately for Kelly, she has an outspoken Housewife ally–former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville. Which may or may not be favorable for Kelly.
