One thing we can look forward to if and when Vanderpump Rules comes back is Scheana Shay being pregnant and in a seemingly healthy relationship. Never forget, Scheana gave Lisa Vanderpump a reason to pitch the spinoff to Bravo by having an affair with Eddie Cibrian, Brandi Glanville’s ex-husband. Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Katie Maloney tried to make Scheana the villain on the show. However, that ultimately failed when it couldn’t be denied that they were actually awful people.
Throughout Scheana’s tenure on Pump Rules she has been trolled pretty hard. By fellow cast members, fans, and even shady former producers. Bottom line, if crappy people like Jax Taylor can get their happy ending on the show, I think Scheana, deserves the same. I know I’m not the only Scheana fan in the room either.
Remember Vanderpump Rules? If this were an ordinary year (where did those go?) we would be watching our once favorite SURvers right now as they made fun of Scheana Marie, fought over petty BS, and got sloppy drunk. Alas, the reckoning of 2020 put a stop to all that. Production for Season 9 is still halted due to COVID and Bravo fired OGs Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute for racist actions against Faith Stowers. Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright also got the ax “parted” with Pump Rules in 2020.
So, who’s left? Lala Kent, Scheana, Tom Schwartz, Katie Maloney, Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, James Kennedy and newbie Charli Burnett. That sounds like enough for a show to me. But it seems like Bravo is slowly backtracking on last year’s exodus. First, Andy Cohen publicly mourned the changes. Now, it’s Lisa Vanderpump’s turn to plant the seeds for redemption.
The prettiest mess there ever was. Erika Jayne’s split from husband Tom Girardi is some Real Housewives of Beverly Hills drama we’ve been asking for. Despite being the most watched franchise of 2020, fans are still begging for some intrigue from this cast. The gang-up on Lisa Vanderpump two seasons back followed by the communal Denise Richards drag has been exhausting. Erika to the rescue!
grifters Giardi’s have caught themselves in a pretty impressive bind. It started with Erika filing for divorce in November. Then we all learned about the renewed fraud allegations against Tommy. But it’s expensive to be Erika, and she has since demanded alimony from her elderly soon-to-be-ex-. Uh. Which part of this being burn victim and orphanage money does she not understand?
Well folks, THIS IS IT. We have reached the end of the road for this season of The Real Housewives of Potomac. It felt like this day would never come. One of the best seasons of Housewives in recent memory. The fight between Monique Samuels & Candiace Dillard Bassett was one of the most talked about moments EVER. Top tier television.
When we last left the women, Candiace was rushing off set in tears after discussing the fight. Monique however remained emotionless and matter of fact about the altercation. The two contrasting reactions to reliving the events was fascinating to watch. This time, the husbands are joining the women on stage, so hopefully things don’t get too out of control. Although, how bad can it get with creepy Michael Darby out of the picture this time?
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills feels so far away, and yet like it happened just yesterday. This last season of RHOBH carried on the YEARS-long tradition of creating one storyline for the whole season, designed to humiliate ONE woman. Last year it was Lisa Vanderpump and puppy gate. The year before was Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave (which in hindsight, I don’t mind that one so much). The year before that was Erika Girardi and panty-gate. This year it was Denise Fu**ing Richards and an ALLEGED sexual encounter, with RHOBH’s self-proclaimed truth teller, Brandi Glanville.
Do you want to revisit any of those seasons? I don’t. Seasons that beat to death a single story are totally unenjoyable. Housewives works best, IMHO, when the show features a truly ensemble cast. Real Housewives of New York City, Atlanta, and Salt Lake City even seem to understand this implicitly. Plus, these series, along with New Jersey, Potomac, Dallas and yes, Orange County have women who are willing to show their lives. RHOBH doesn’t do either of these things and yet, it was the most-watched series in the franchise.
There is major trouble afoot on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: What Ever Happened To Erika Jayne? Lots of legal issues are brewing and possible criminal charges are looming. Also, the show is in production which means viewers will get a glimpse of what everyone is talking about, even though they won’t be talking about it. But that’s okay because we are going to MENTION IT ALL. Erika Jayne and estranged husband Tom Girardi might have knocked Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers off the Worst Scammers of All Time pedestal.
Vicki and Brooks held that title for years, because sympathy casseroles were a thing. But Tom and Erika’s recent accusations of embezzlement and fraud blow them out of the water. So what happens when you are accused of stealing money from plane crash and burn victims? When your assets are frozen amid questionable divorce filings and you are 30 seconds away from forced bankruptcy? Honey, you start selling your shit. And that’s exactly what Erika is doing. Anyone need a gently used Gucci tracksuit with faint notes of Jean Nate and desperation?
What a wild and crazy ride 2020 has been. This year has been devastating in so many ways. While some positives have come from the recently highlighted Black Lives Matter movement, it’s honestly appalling we’re still having to explain racism to grown ass adults. Then there’s the entire pandemic some people are still pretending doesn’t exist. The audacity.
We’re almost through this torturous year, but not in time for one of Bravo’s most renowned and beloved pets.
Someone might be in big trouble. A couple of months ago, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Erika Jayne, revealed she filed for divorce from her husband Tom Girardi after more than twenty years. Many people side-eyed this filing as it seemed to coincide with a pesky lawsuit Tom was dealing with. If you didn’t have sham divorce to protect assets on your 2020 bingo card, then you haven’t been paying attention.
This could be the one thing that makes Erika pack her latex and hair extensions and move quietly to Encino. Unfortunately for Erika, it HAS TO DO WITH TOM. Shady business deals and sketchy wallets are not new to RHOBH fans because, Dorit Kemsley, but this one takes the cake. Erika is not having a good holiday season thus far and she’s about to partake in some tricky legal situations. Today we will learn about embezzlement.
