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.
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.
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.
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…
After one of the most talked-about seasons of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to date, viewers want redemption. Many fans of the show were left somewhat bewildered after the wild turn of events. The show took a hard hit after Lisa Vanderpump announced her decision to depart the franchise. While the rest of the cast centered their storylines around Lisa’s alleged and unconfirmed actions, she peaced out for the sake of her sanity. At the Season 9 reunion, Erika Jayne (of all people) crowned Kyle Richards as the new “queen” of RHOBH. Uh-huh.
Word on the street is the sitting queen has a lot of say in casting. Perhaps once you bounce one of the more beloved cast members, you automatically level up? Camille Grammer was on fire in her “friend of” role on the show. She did not bow to Her Majesty and delighted in calling people out. After a wedding, the drama of her home burning to the ground, and her ability to ruffle feathers, it seemed Camille would be guaranteed a full-time slot. When she was effectively cancelled, Cammy alleged it was Kyle who made the call. Kyle has just responded to Camille’s assumptions, but don’t worry, Camille hasn’t finished.
