The trailer for Vanderpump Rules Season 8 dropped last week and it looked good. Season 7 wasn’t the best since most of the cast got along and they’ve all settled down with serious relationships. We needed more and it looks like Season 8 will deliver.
Anyone who has followed the news in between seasons knows that there are some feuds brewing in Season 8. With that said, we already knew about Jax Taylor’s fall out with Tom Sandoval, although the exact cause is still unclear. The same can be said for Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney’s highly-publicized issues with Kristen Doute. Neither of those plot points was a “surprise” to anyone who saw the trailer, but the dramatic music along with those flashback clips paired with the Lisa Vanderpump narration got me hyped. And so did the new cast members. It’s comeback season Pump Rules. After many viewers yawned throughout last season, they’ve brought in some reinforcements. Let’s meet the new people.
Because, of course, they are! Real Housewives of Beverly Hills might be in a spot of trouble. Filming is currently underway for the show’s 10th season and by all accounts, it is
a bore fest struggling. With rumors of fledgling plot lines and no drama, the troops have been called in.
Last week we learned Camille Grammer was getting back in the saddle to
save the show light a fire underneath the current cast in hopes of upping the theatrics. Today we know other RHOBH alums are now in pa osition to pick up the slack, along with Camille 007. Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards, get ready, it’s your turn to show up and show out.
Whether you agree with the results or not, the people have spoken. The People’s Choice Awards went down on November 10 and there were some big winners in the reality TV categories. And even the people who didn’t win showed up
to get some press enjoy the party.
I’m not gonna lie, I wish I got an invite because there were cast members from some of my favorite shows in attendance and I would just love to see them all interact. Real Housewives, Vanderpump Rules, The Bachelor, and Keeping Up With the Kardashians cast members showed up for the award show.
Ah, memories. I know there are some hard feelings about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Even Lisa Vanderpump haters were quietly appalled at how things went down last season. It seemed to last forever. We watched in fascination when Kyle Richards challenged Lisa and Ken Todd on their home turf. #goodbyekyle Our jaws dropped as Lisa played her last game of chess and quit. We were told of evil lies and betrayal, but got hung out to dry with no answers or confirmations.
To be blunt, the season was a wash. Fans began to side-eye the all-consuming dog drama and slowly discovered what the players were really hiding. Many viewers found the one saving grace was Camille Grammer Meyer. She rebelled against the #puppygate scandal and did not hesitate to call people out. She pulled certain cast members from their delusion cocoons. She also famously
spoke for all of us advised Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave to “shut it down” when Teddi attempted to speak during the finale party. After a turbulent appearance on the reunion, all of a sudden Camille was gone. As the last hope for anarchy in Beverly Hills faded, the rumor mill started pumping. Bravo doesn’t want Real Housewives of Dullsville! When all else fails, you know what to do! Call Camille Donatacci Grammer Meyer 007.
Let’s discuss Real Housewives of Beverly Hills! Now filming it’s 10th season, the cast is up two new ladies and down one star. According to ancient scrolls, #puppygate was the smokescreen created to avoid discussing “sensitive legal matters”. Dorit Kemsley and Kyle Richards both have husbands in hot water. They were also heavily involved with perpetuating the agonizing puppygate storyline. Coincidence? The scandal saw Lisa Vanderpump effectively giving the finger to her co-stars and the show, after being blamed for Dorit’s blunder with basic animal care.
Despite LVP’s departure, the sun has risen again on RHOBH. Or has it? Viewers hoping to get a taste of Mauricio Umansky’s multi-million dollar fraud lawsuit, will probably remain hungry. Those with a thirst for seeing PK Kemsley give Dorit condolences for her dead checking account, will most likely remain parched. So what will the ladies do to fill the time and keep us interested? The answer might be, nothing at all.
The upcoming season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is going to be drastically different. Two of the OG cast members, Lisa Vanderpump and Camille Grammer, will not be there to mix it up and call out the other ladies. Newbies Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke will be there to bring the drama instead. Those are some big Christian Louboutin’s to fill.
Denise Richards had her freshman season this past go around. And I’m sure she has a lot of wisdom to impart on Garcelle and Sutton. Such as how to get know-it-all Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave to stop talking, or ice queen Erika Jayne to start talking. But rumors abounded that Denise wouldn’t play a big part in the newest season due to her busy acting career. Luckily, the rumors aren’t true.
Just because Lisa Vanderpump is no longer on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, doesn’t mean we get to stop talking about her. Because, you know, she has another show on Bravo. In fact, it has been reported viewers will be seeing even more of Lisa on Vanderpump Rules next season due to her departure from RHOBH. Stand down haters!
Lisa wasn’t going to let a little thing like
losing all of her friends dog drama keep her from adding to her bank account. Lisa’s former co-stars could probably benefit from some counseling in that area. While they have been going to court, she has been buying new real estate. After the success of Tom Tom in West Hollywood, Lisa decided to go ahead and buy the whole bloody block. She could probably have her own zip code at this point. Now Lisa is sharing the latest plans in her continuing takeover of WeHo.
As you know, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is filming it’s first season sans Lisa Vanderpump. As someone with a heavy fan base who have no problems holding a grudge, the current cast will have to step it up. Thankfully we have two new ladies joining the crew. Both friends of Lisa Rinna, Sutton Stracke and Garcelle Beauvais are getting their feet wet in the shark pond.
Everyone else will be returning, including Denise Richards. Last year Denise graced us with too many stories about her husband’s alleged massive penis situation but she was mildly amusing and didn’t stir up too much controversy. She seemed to be a bit of a Switzerland kind of gal with leanings towards the Dark Side. So what will Denise bring us this year? Will she find herself huddled under Kyle Richards’ crown? Will she join Erika Jayne’s back-up dancers? Probably none of the above, she’s busy working at her day job.
