We’re off to the races with yet another season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and it seems like this season has a chance of being as great as the good old days. Last year, despite the show successfully attracting plenty of viewers, was hard to watch. The group ganged up on everyone’s favorite raggamuffin Denise Richards after she wouldn’t admit to hooking up with Brandi Glanville. Brandi really finally thought she had a shot at getting a diamond back in her hand by outing Denise. But in the end, Denise has the last laugh (with a Casamigos in hand) because she’s a real-life successful actress with a happy family. And Brandi is just begging for Bravo to give her a check any way they can. And now blaming the whole rumor on her only friend Kim Richards.
Denise graced us with her presence on RHOBH and while she didn’t always tell the truth, she was a lot of fun. Whether it was talking about her husband Aaron Phypers getting happy endings or screaming the iconic words “Bravo Bravo F–king Bravo,” she was good housewife material. But after the mean girl gang made her hookup rumors the only storyline of the season, it’s no wonder she said “peace” and left the show for good. At least Garcelle Beauvais was there to be a kind and true friend to Denise, or she would’ve been alone to fend for herself.
Word on the street is Bravo is hustling to fill some Real Housewives of Beverly Hills vacancies. Denise Richards drank her last Casamigos Blanco on camera and took off. Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave also left, but that wasn’t her choice. Seriously, it was the one thing people asked for in 2020 and Bravo gave it to them. No word on if Kyle Richards has come through her period of mourning with her bangs intact.
Lots of names are being tossed around to fill the void. Does anyone have Nicollette Sheridan’s number? Many viewers would love to see Sutton Stracke become full time. Kyle’s sister Kathy Hilton could join as a friend. People thought
Pimp Mama Kris Jenner might be an option, but that’s a big no. I’m surprised Santa Claus hasn’t been contacted. Now Kris’ former spouse might be a contender. That’s right, Caitlyn Jenner and her BFF Sophia Hutchins are letting Bravo know they are willing and able to grab those diamonds.
Internet sleuths know that there’s some sort of beef between Denise Richards and the other Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast members. We all saw Lisa Rinna’s faux concern after Denise skipped out on an all-cast event.
Based on social media (i.e. Brandi Glanville’s thirsty tweets), Brandi is beefing with Denise. We don’t for sure know why that is, but there some wild rumors circulating on the internet. Let’s get into it. And a warning: the drinking word for this post is “allegedly.” Take a sip every time you read “allegedly” and you’ll have a delightful Wednesday afternoon.
Lisa Rinna has been a busy woman this season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She has been feverishly stirring the pot about “puppy gate” and enjoying the toppling of Lisa Vanderpump as top Beverly Hills Housewife. She has been using $2,000 worth of skin care products to maintain her glowing skin. Same, Rinna. Same.
Rinna engaged in a Twitter war with husband Harry Hamlin’s ex-wife Nicollette Sheridan. Rinna strongly implied that Nicollette cheated on Harry with singer Michael Bolton. Nicollette was also married, and just divorced, from Aaron Phypers. This paved the way for Aaron to marry newbie Housewife Denise Richards. Bravo, can we please have Nicollette join RHOBH? Please! That would be amazing!
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is delivering big time this season. Not only is “puppy gate” still causing tons of drama, but Lisa Rinna is back to her pot-stirring ways. She tweeted a birthday message to co-star (and sparring partner) Lisa Vanderpump. It was a picture of a cupcake with some pills. Of course, Rinna was referencing her own joke “bag of pills.” Unfortunately, some fans thought that Rinna was referencing Lisa’s brother’s overdose death. Rinna said that she didn’t know that Lisa’s brother died from an overdose. That is so awkward.
But who is always in Rinna’s corner? Her husband Harry Hamlin. In the past, he denied that his wife put Xanax in smoothies. Good to know. When a Twitter feud erupted between Rinna and Harry’s former wife, Nicollette Sheridan, Harry once again defended Rinna. Fun fact: Nicollette was also married to Aaron Phypers. Aaron had to wait for his divorce from Nicollette to be finalized so he could marry RHOBH newbie Denise Richards.
Wasn’t last night’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills a great episode? Although last week’s dramatic fight between Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards still lingered in the air, it was nice to have a show that was a little more low-key. You can’t have high drama each week-or you would never appreciate it when the good stuff actually happens!
For the ladies, it was all about celebrating. Lisa was the guest of honor at her own birthday party, with Denise Richards as the only invited Housewife guest. Most of the other ladies were at a get together at Beauty & Essex for Denise’s recent wedding-a post bachelorette shower, if you will. And Lisa Rinna tried to do damage control regarding an insensitive tweet she sent out to LVP for her birthday. Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave believes that the tweet was all an innocent mistake-but was it?
I started this season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills planning to keep an open mind, but the plotting is just so sloppy and transparent. And not the plotting Lisa Vanderpump is doing!
Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave has, by now, told about 15 renditions of her involvement/non-involvement in DogGate. In each version, she becomes increasingly naive and played for a fool. Also each time one of her versions doesn’t coincide with the revision, the other women conveniently brush it aside and double-down on the narrative that Teddi is the victim. Or Dorit Kemsley is. Really?
For instance tonight Teddi told her therapist she never spoke directly to Lisa about Doggate (Why are we still talking about this?!), then told Dorit and the other women that she was on a three-way call with Lisa and John Sessa which proves LVP is directly involved. Isn’t the whole point of Teddi’s argument that LVP isn’t owning her part and wants to frame Teddi? Well, it sounds like Teddi is doing the same exact thing!
Tonight the axis of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills officially shifts when Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, a turtle of accountability, cements her very misplaced alliance with the rest of the cast against Lisa Vanderpump. All this over Dorit Kemsley (who has a deflated bank account to go with her droopy ethics and very drooping bikini tops) mistreating a dog and a friend.
I mean, when you (Teddi) are basing your rejection of a friendship based on said friend’s (LVP) possible collaboration in exposing a really shitty, contract violating, grifting, lying animal mistreating, a-hole, you probably need to reexamine your priorities in life and your version of morality. Just my opinion! But there goes Teddi throwing accountability to the wolves of Erika Girardi, Lisa Rinna, and Dorit. Girl… have fun with that til they turn back on you.
