Last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills was a filler episode of wealthy women doing what Bravo wants us to believe wealthy women do: shopping and pastry decorating in between filming PSAs about parental abandonment (aka empty nesting) and eating disorders coinciding with the launch of your Instagram modeling career.
Anyway, Lisa takes a hit of laughing gas, which according to her “is like drinking a whole bottle of wine without the hangover” and gets her neck tightened. Kyle videos the whole procedure, and LVP explains that laughing with Kyle is necessary for her as she deals with the loss of her brother.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsstarted out with a bang this week. And much of that loud noise is related to cast members sharing snippets of information about the upcoming season, both on and off the show. I can’t remember a season of a Real Housewives show in when so much Housewife chatter occurred so early. And that is saying a lot since most of these ladies LOVE to talk.
From what we have learned so far, much of the new season is going to be centered around Camp [Lisa] Vanderpump-filled with diamonds, sparkles, silky blouses, and miniature ponies. And everyone else. I would call that place Camp Non-Lisa, but that would be confusing since Lisa Rinna is squarely in that camp. That angry place is filled mostly with accusations against Lisa V.
Fans also got to see part of the argument between Lisa, Kyle Richards, and Lisa’s husband Ken Todd that resulted in Kyle being thrown out of Villa Rosa. Then the show flipped back to two months earlier. Now, the fans can see how the three end up in that altercation.
In fact, the season opens with Kyle Richards getting thrown out of LVP’s house and Ken Todd telling her that she is NOT a good friend. Fast forward to two months earlier, we check in with all the ladies.
Unsurprisingly, Erika Girardi wakes up alone. Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, meanwhile, wakes up in an enormous new house they purchased for the canyon views. Teddi is now running an accountability empire and trying to hold herself accountable to the motherhood/work balance. Things get so confusing her five-year-old winds up wearing one of Teddi’s crop tops as a t-shirt. #DontGiveBethennyAnyIdeas
After seasons and seasons of LymeLies, and Munchensnoozin, and dishwares dramas, and panty-PeeKers, and Brokendown Brandi-gates, it’s impossible to recall that this show was once as exciting, raw, and authentically crazy asReal Housewives Of New York! I mean this recap of Kyle Richards‘ most memorable moments stands as a testament to the great letdown of my reality TV obsessed life.
This week we celebrate Kyle Richards‘ birthday, a momentous Bravo occasion if ever there was one, because it is Kyle who brought us kaftans. I cried tears of warm rosé to learn that Kaftans By KyleKantoo closed last year, because how else am I going to satisfy my dream of being shrouded in polyester satin leopard print, weighed down by giant rhinestones and chopped off at the mid-thigh? I guess I’ll have to travel all the way to Beverly Hills to raid Kyle’s closet!
Most of Kyle’s notable moments are connected to Kim Richards. The Twisted Sisters Richards have formed the cornerstone of this show’s consistent focus of very real family dysfunction from practically the very first episode.
It felt like there were Real Housewives meetups happening all over the country this week. Or at least that’s what it seemed like when I scroll through my Instagram feed. Kandi Burruss supported Beverly Hills Housewife Erika Jayne at her Atlanta concert. Potomac Housewives Gizelle Bryant hung out with Real Housewives of Atlanta OG NeNe Leakes. Warning: they applied way too much airbrush to their IG photo. Cynthia Bailey left the ATL to hang out with Dorinda Medley in New York City.
Real Housewives of Dallas stars Stephanie Hollman and Brandi Redmond shared photos hanging with their kids. Meanwhile, their costar Cary Deuber shared a photo of her face all marked up and ready for a cosmetic procedure. Orange County Housewife Shannon Beadorfollowed her lead. Shannon posted a photo of herself getting some cosmetic enhancements. This is a social media trend that I just don’t understand.
