We’ve been here before, friends. That time of limbo after another season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has
mercifully ended. Rumors begin to hum about what fantastic, wealthy female will throw her hat into the ring of fire. Since about 2015, Kathy Hilton’s name has been batted around as a possible Housewife. One thing we can probably all agree on is that this show needs a shake-up. Kathy actually passed on the shot to join the first season of RHOBH and suggested her sister, Kyle Richards instead. Thanks so much, Kathy!
RHOBH viewers already know Kathy is the half-sister Kyle and Kim Richards. Viewers also know Kathy and Kyle’s relationship has been a bit…touchy. If Kyle were to write down a list of her fears, sister Kathy would probably be on the top of that list. Right next to heights and Lisa Vanderpump’s swans. There are a lot of skeletons in that family closet and let me tell you, it’s a walk-in with several floors. So while many fans think the show doesn’t need another Richards/Hilton tie, Kathy might be the one person who can give the people what they want. This could get interesting.
Real Housewives of
Sherman Oaks Beverly Hills alum, Kathryn Edwards, made quite a splash on a recent podcast appearance. This is far more publicity than she ever experienced while a member of the RHOBH cast. But it’s safe to say most everyone is talking about a group of women who have now ousted two co-stars in a hail of ambiguous accusations and general gas lighting.
Kathryn was spared from the sophomore hot seat because she
was fired did not film a second season, but that isn’t stopping her from talking about her experience on the show. In a new interview, Kathryn detailed how Lisa Vanderpump allegedly controlled storylines and was reluctant to quit. Though Lisa is no longer involved with the program, she felt the need to address Kathryn’s chatter and set the record straight. Since fame whores gonna fame whore, this all happened on Twitter.
We didn’t get to see a lot of Camille Grammer this season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Under the neon pink glow of bitchiness, Kyle Richards welcomed Camille to her home for a fundraiser, but she was largely absent from communicating with the group. Probably because the majority of cast members know ‘ol Cammy has no shits to give and will poke the bear just for kicks.
This is why many viewers appreciated Camille’s time on RHOBH. She was the only one to try and get dirt on Dorit Kemsley’s sketchy wallet. She called Lisa Rinna a hypocrite for fueling the Brandi Glanville and Denise Richards
farce drama. And Camille never took any of Kyle’s crap. Now Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is on deck. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the return of Camille 007.
Remember Kathryn Edwards? Along with Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud, Kathryn is part of the “one and done” crew from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Kathryn appeared on the show in 2016 and seemed to share much of her conflict with The Morally Corrupt Faye Resnick. Though she tried to play the game (don’t hate the game, just marry a player), she was benched after her freshman season. Let’s all take a moment and reflect on the juicy drama and great one-liners Kathryn gifted us with. Aaaaand we’re finished.
While Kathryn didn’t have the opportunity to strut her stuff for a second season, because, fired, she did learn a few things during her tenure on the show. Sometimes reality television isn’t pure in the “reality” sense of the word. You already know this if you have a working tv and access to any type of media device. Recently, Kathryn shared some insight on producer-driven drama in the Bravo universe and certain cast members
earning their check driving that producer-driven bus.
Oh Rinna, what’s wrong, girl? Cease and desist got your tongue? As viewers have learned, Lisa Rinna is not happy with the virtual Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion. While fans are in the midst of Season 10, the alleged hook up no one wants to see has yet to occur. Thankfully, Brandi Glanville of the Always Trying To Be Relevant Glanvilles, is lurking around the corner to stir things up.
Rinna has previously
blabbed implied the supposed “affair” between very-married Denise Richards and eternally-single Brandi is now an off-limits topic. While we should be thankful some of these purported details will remain unknown, Lisa is yelling from the rooftops that former friend Denise is a “phony AND a narcissist” after the reunion taping. Lisa also labeled the reunion as “bullshit”, stay classy y’all! Now Andy Cohen is responding to these comments, and Daddy might have to put someone in time out.
Lisa Vanderpump has had a rough few months. Vanderpump Rules, which is the only Bravo show she has left to stand on, just experienced a major reckoning. The firing of four cast members over racism shook the reality world. And wasn’t exactly a good look for their boss, LVP. Then the news broke that her beloved restaurant Villa Blanca is closing. Now there is a continuing beef with actress Sarah Paulson. Random, but here we are.
But Lisa isn’t done being put through the ringer. Now a blast from her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills past has come back to haunt her.
Do you wonder if the messy boots worn by cast members on Vanderpump Rules is less about the individual and more about who is protecting the individual? Exhibit A: former Pump Rules star, Stassi Schroeder. Stassi has been called out in the past for making racially insensitive comments. She was given a pass for “ignorance” but when things kept popping up, she got checked. Bravo couldn’t save face and save the cast, so they cut ties with Stassi and Kristen Doute for their part in filing a false police report against Faith Stowers. In the same podcast where Stassi and Kristen laughed about calling the cops on Faith, Stassi shared another little tidbit.
During Faith’s tenure on the show, it seemed her only friend was Lala Kent. Faith and Lala paraded around Lisa Vanderpump’s pool. Faith and Lala shared topless moments on a vacation to Hawaii. And according to Stassi, Lala pulled a knife on Faith. What’s more, this ALLEGEDLY occurred when cameras were filming. The incident never aired, but it might explain why Lala hopped on the apology bus. The question is, does it shine a light on Bravo’s proclivity to protect certain “stars”?
In the fallout of celebrities being exposed for racist activity, Vanderpump Rules has suffered much needed losses. This is a good thing. Discrimination in any form should not be tolerated, be it by skin color, sexual preference, or how one identifies as a human being.
Treating people horribly and basic intolerance isn’t new for Pump Rules. Who hasn’t had Lala Kent’s finger stuck in their face at this point? Let’s face it, Stassi Schroeder’s career was born from treating people like dirt. It seems we have been watching a show centered around systematic bullying. Sure, people have fun and drink. They go on fancy vacations. But there is usually one cast member receiving the wrath of a particular clique. Former SUR employee Billie Lee often felt victimized and misunderstood during her tenure on the show. Apparently when she tried to speak up, Lisa Vanderpump strongly advised her to stand down.
