Holy cats, it’s here. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is coming back and it has some explaining to do. Fans have been waiting for the Season 11 trailer to be released and for all intents and purposes, it does not disappoint. Loyal viewers of RHOBH have struggled the past few years due to lack of drama and the cast having a mental block against addressing their very interesting legal issues on camera. Instead we’ve been treated to bogus dog storylines and not much in the way of captivating television.
Will this be the redemption season for Beverly Hills? We’ll see some new faces on old faces and new cast members to spice things up. Kyle Richards’ sister Kathy Hilton is joining the gang, and newcomer Crystal Minkoff is off and running on her first season. Now it’s time to watch the Season 11 preview while the Bravo gods silently thank Erika Jayne for finally getting a storyline.
Whenever Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd think they’re off the hook, someone sues them again. The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was sued back in August for not paying SUR employees. Then in February of this year, Lisa and Ken were sued for not paying their fruit and vegetable bills at Villa Blanca.
Another class action lawsuit was filed over a year ago, alleging that Ken and Lisa did not pay employees minimum wage or overtime and failed to give employees breaks. This lawsuit named all four of their restaurants (TomTom, Villa Blanca, Pump and SUR). Five years ago, Lisa sued her former attorney because she and Ken lost a judgment against a former waitress. That waitress was awarded 1.6 million dollars, which is a pretty big settlement. Big enough to say that case was totally legit. Have we noted a pattern?
Lisa Vanderpump of the Dahling That’s Just My British Humor Vanderpumps, has been doing media for her new show over on the E! channel. While she “overserves” d-list celebrities at her home, people continue to wonder about the fate of Vanderpump Rules, which continues to hang on a very thin thread. The show has struggled to make a return since half the cast was fired for past racial indiscretions. It might be time to give this horse a nice ceremony and let it die in peace.
Along with Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and two rando guys no one remembers, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright also departed the program. But how they left is up for debate. If you ask Jax and Brittany, they voluntarily left to “work on their growing family“. Recently Lisa gave an interview on the possible future of VPR, and ended any speculation of how Jax and Brittany went out. Now it seems Lisa could very well become a member of the #blockedbyjax club.
What’s going on at Villa Rosa these days? Recently, Lisa Vanderpump and her husband Ken Todd got called out for not paying $100K for their restaurants’ fruit and vegetable bills.
They were also accused of not paying their employees (multiple times), which Lisa and Ken both strongly denied. Now, they have tax issues that suspended one of their restaurants.
The fate of Vanderpump Rules remains in limbo – or does it? No one seemingly wants to officially cut the cord of the popular Bravo show that hasn’t filmed since last year. The program didn’t return to it’s regularly scheduled season because it needed to fill some casting gaps left open by
racism firings and then the Rona came and shut everything down. Most of the crew has kept busy by creating babies or writing books no one asked for and it seemed all held hope production would begin at some point.
Now here we are, still waiting. Most of our shows are back to their normal pace and in the interim, Lisa Vanderpump got a whole new gig. Yet Pump Rules is still sitting in time out, seemingly teetering on the edge of cancellation but never quite falling over. Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix are two long-term members of the show who are still technically employed by Bravo because they didn’t get canned. Recently the #1 guy in that group hinted the show will in fact be back, but it’s not even close to being on anyone’s watchlist.
Life is certainly not all diamonds and rose for Lisa Vanderpump, but her life does often come close to the saying. It feels like forever since we’ve seen LVP on our screens. She unceremoniously left Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in 2019. She couldn’t take the mean girls anymore, so it was Goodbye Kyle [Richards], and goodbye housewives.
Then COVID hit, which meant no Vanderpump Rules either for the restauranteur. Recently, however, things have been turning around for Lisa. She has a new show, Overserved with Lisa Vanderpump, coming out on E! in March. The show will take place at Villa Rosa, where Lisa will literally overserve guests and spill some tea. So yeah, I’m there! The high of good news however doesn’t last for long. Now, Lisa and husband Ken Todd are being sued (again).
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?
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.
