Star of Vanderpump Rules and avoider of all things dramatic, Jax Taylor, had a moment. Viewers are currently enjoying Jax and Brittany Cartwright’s journey to
their first divorce marital bliss. On the last episode, the main topic of conversation was the controversial social media posts Brittany and Jax’s chosen wedding officiant had written. Lisa Vanderpump was horrified and made it her duty to “inform” the happy couple their pastor was not exactly accepting of a homosexual lifestyle. And what would Pump Rules be without every other cast member talking about it as well?
While most disagree with the pastor’s negative statements towards the gay community, Brittany and Jax took a lot of heat for not replacing him sooner. Tom Sandoval was particularly vocal, as he has long been a supporter of LGBTQ rights. Recently, the general manager of Tom Tom and Sandoval’s buddy Max Boyens found himself in the hot seat for sketchy sentiments as well. Yet Tom’s reaction to Max’s past indiscretions were written off as “youthful mistakes”. Jax took to Twitter to share his frustrations, and he did not hold back.
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…
I feel like it was just yesterday when I teased the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast for not being able to quit Lisa Vanderpump like she quit the show. Oh wait, it WAS just yesterday and probably most days since Lisa’s exit from the franchise. Why,
Bangs Kyle Richards even claimed Lisa avoided her at BravoCon. Ladies, even Queen Elsa is begging you to let it go at this point.
Nah, not gonna happen. Season 10 is baking like a Thanksgiving turkey and that bird is looking dry. Why? Because our Beverly Hills denizens are finally free from the pillar of manipulation and deceit that tormented the group for years. Translation, their
scapegoat target jumped ship. And even though the ladies swear on their Hermès bags that LVP is both gone and forgotten, their actions continue to speak louder than their words. Maybe.
And all the congregation said, DUH! Camille Grammer Meyer is having a moment, y’all. But, isn’t that the idea? When Real Housewives of Beverly Hills started getting slammed for the alleged boring season currently being filmed, instead of crawling on their hands and knees to Lisa Vanderpump, Bravo crawled to Camille. But she wasn’t the only one brought in to liven up the
snoozefest ladies, Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards got the call as well.
Apparently the red carpet was not rolled out for Camille’s return. That isn’t surprising because handlers carry it exclusively for Kyle Richards so her tiny sacred feet never directly touch the ground. Kidding! Kind of. Technically Camille isn’t supposed to be back at all. She famously tried to bust #puppygate and Dorit Kemsley’s financial embarrassment wide open last season. That didn’t exactly make her popular with the rest of the gang. But “the gang” proved to be failing on their own, so heeeeeeeeere’s Cammy! Now that she is back at work, is she getting the job done? All signs point to yes because Camille says the drama is falling on her shoulders. Get that check, girl.
What do you get when you leave a hit ensemble series amid rumors of treachery and trickery? If you are Lisa Vanderpump, you just might get another show. The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star quit during Season 9’s infamous #puppygate scandal. In the space of 18 months Lisa lost family members, a check, and anyone in the cast who previously held the title of “friend”. After Lisa’s departure, the remaining ladies rallied around each other blissfully unaware of the backlash they would soon face.
Fans were outraged and are now threatening never to tune in to RHOBH again! The boycotts are on and the fury is palpable, but fear not LVP stans, Bravo might just throw you a bone. Speaking of bones, back in March, the streets were talking about the possibility of a new show being created for Lisa. While she already has Vanderpump Rules, this spawn of Lisa’s endeavors would feature her dog rescue organization, Vanderpump Dogs. Imagine, a program conceived at the Ground Zero of the drama that lead to Lisa’s exodus. It almost makes you want to say, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Adrienne Maloof was on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Mega-rich and formerly married to Dr. Paul Nassif, Adrienne lived across the street from another departed Beverly Hills castmate, Lisa Vanderpump. While on the show, fans watched Paul and Adrienne navigate their marriage through a series of thinly veiled insults and exasperated eye rolls. It was a surprise to no one when the couple eventually divorced.
In 2013, Adrienne either quit or got fired from RHOBH. If you ask Adrienne, she left because of Brandi Glanville. Brandi spilled some sacred beans regarding the birth of Adrienne’s children. Instead of arranging Brandi’s “disappearance”, Adrienne made herself disappear, which enraged
Big Daddy Andy Cohen. When Adrienne bailed on a reunion taping, Andy famously bailed on Adrienne. But she has gone onto bigger and better things. Over the years, Adrienne has lent her name to various charities and philanthropic efforts. Now she is tackling a worthy cause that puts fear into any parent sending their child to get an education. Adrienne is going after guns in our schools. Hell yes, let’s see what she can do.
The PR machine is out in full force! Now that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills can’t blame all of their issues on Lisa Vanderpump, the cast has been riding a wave of togetherness. Since filming began on Season 10, the ladies have enjoyed the launch of Kyle Richards’ epic caftan collection. The group has bonded over the impending arrival of Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave’s new
storyline baby girl. And let’s not forget the joy they have experienced at welcoming two newcomers to the coven team.
Cue the record scratch because all might not be well in the Beverly Hills hood. Many viewers are crying foul and Bravo is crying tears because of an alleged drought of drama. Thankfully Erika Jayne is on the media stroll, and wants fans to know there is drama. But it’s meaningful drama…
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.
