The premier of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 11 is just around the corner. Thanks to alleged fraudster Erika
Chahoy Girardi Jayne, we actually might have a show on our hands. Erika joined the franchise in 2015, but this will be her first time with a storyline. Congrats, Erika! Sutton Stracke will finally hold a diamond and give fashion advice on pleated leather pants. We’ll also see two relatively new faces.
Crystal Kung Minkoff is coming on board and rumor has it, she won’t be a wallflower. Because wallflowers wilt in Beverly Hills. Kathy Hilton is an enigma, wrapped in Valentino and actual cash. She’s also Kyle Richards’ older sister who doesn’t take any of Kyle’s shit. Recently RHOBH alum Taylor Armstrong spoke on Kathy’s new gig and hinted it might not be all puppies and bags of diamonds between Kath and Kyle this season.
Water is wet. The sky is blue. And Kyle Richards is talking about Lisa Vanderpump. Recently, an article was published on Vulture by author, Anna Peele. If you haven’t checked it out, you should. There weren’t a lot of stones left uncovered and Anna called the in-depth piece “my dream assignment“. She did interviews with Kenya Moore, Tiffany Moon, Andy Cohen, and Kyle, to name a few.
No one even vaguely familiar with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills would write an article without inquiring about the backstory. Obviously this would include Kyle and Lisa’s doomed relationship. LVP checked out in Season 9, but her memory definitely lives on. Some even say there are parts of Encino where the echoes of, “Goodbye Kyle!” still lingers in the valley. Anna shared some tidbits that weren’t included in her commentary, and one of those tidbits was courtesy of Kyle. Let’s just say, it’s business as usual in Beverly Hills.
When Season 11 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills debuts on May 19, 2021 “OG” Kyle Richards will once again have a sister in the mix. That may not be the best news for Kyle.
In the past, Kyle’s sister, Kim Richards, held a diamond for five seasons on RHOBH. She struggled with alcoholism, and the relationship between the pair was often fragile. It was heartbreaking to watch. Kim even accused Kyle of stealing her house. After their parents died, Kim was expecting to inherit their Los Angeles home, but it went to Kyle instead.
There’s really a lot of untapped potential with the househusbands of Bravo. The men on the Real Housewives of New Jersey could have their own spin-off because they’re just as involved in the drama as the women are. The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City could do a deep-dive on Mary Cosby and Jen Shah’s husbands alone. And then we have the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, where the men never shy away from the drama — remember how Denise Richards let Aaron Phypers run wild to defend her against her castmates last season?
Two of the most-loved RHOBH men are undoubtedly Kyle Richards’ husband Mauricio Umansky and Dorit Kemsley’s hubby PK Kemsley. They have an adorable friendship, get into hilarious antics and sometimes, in M’s case, get a little stoned now and again.
Dorit Kemsley’s befuddling accent has been a more reliable mainstay on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills than Brandi Glanville, Erika Jayne and a handful of other cast members. It’s always there, always slightly changing and always confusing everyone in earshot. Dorit says it’s a combination of her jet-setter lifestyle and her marriage to Brit PK Kemsley. But in my opinion, Dorit’s dialect sounds like it originated from the Capri Room at Buca di Beppo.
While Dorit’s face has gone through a major change throughout her time on the show, her accent has always remained. And she wears her accent proudly. Remember when she defended Hilaria Baldwin when she was getting backlash for a fake accent? Dorit doesn’t back down when people are making fun of her adopted accent. And apparently, she’s not the only woman in PK’s life to develop an accent after dating the drama-loving househusband.
In the premiere episode, Heather Gay certainly seemed like the most traditionally Mormon cast member of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. But looks can be deceiving. In her tagline, Heather states, “Just like my pioneer ancestors, I’m trying to blaze a new trail.”
That is because Heather was once married to “Mormon royalty,” whose family allegedly received a large inheritance from Howard Hughes. In fact, his family is worth a cool billion dollars.
Kyle Richards has faced her fair share of challenges. Being an original member of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast has it’s advantages and disadvantages. For many years, Kyle’s sister, Kim Richards was holding a diamond, along with her sibling. Unfortunately Kim’s past issues with substance abuse wound up being her downfall from the show, and consequently Kyle’s storyline went out the door with her.
Kyle has always had a curious relationship with her sisters. I’m not sure we will ever be privy to the sordid details surrounding Kim’s goddamned house, that may or may not have been stolen by Kyle. But let’s not forget Kathy Hilton. Kathy has not, will not, and doesn’t plan on taking any of Kyle’s crap. In previous RHOBH seasons, Kyle has almost seemed… intimidated by her older sissy. Now that the streets are saying Kathy might be coming on board, Kyle is
shaking in her boots sharing her reaction to the possibility of having another relative join the crew.
Even though Real Housewives is technically a reality TV show, we don’t see anyone’s true reality. Of course, it’s impossible to show the entirety of anyone’s life. However, some of these Housewives sure do hide a lot. And by “a lot” I mean lawsuits on lawsuits on lawsuits.
But, aside from legal issues the women are trying to hide, what else are they trying to keep from the show? Well, apparently, there’s a West Coast Housewife who’s trying hard to hide her husband’s affair.
