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.
The Real Housewives franchise has its fair share of cast financial scandals. And as each scandal breaks, fans question how the network vets their cast members. Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd supposedly violated California labor laws. Former business partners sued Dorit Kemsley & PK Kemsley for monies owed.
Teresa Giudice spent 11 months in jail for bankruptcy fraud. Her ex-husband Joe Giudice was away for 41 months. Phaedra Parks’ ex-husband Apollo Nida who served 96 months. Recently, Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Jen Shah was charged with alleged conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering. She’s facing one of the heaviest legal battles in Real Housewives history. A battle that, if lost, will come with a lengthy prison sentence. If found guilty, Jen could face a maximum sentence of 30 years.
By all accounts, next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will revolve around Erika Jayne. This is due in part because most of the other cast has settled the majority of their legal problems – looking at you Dorit and PK Kemsley! If nothing else, hopefully we can avoid any fabricated storylines that are only meant to distract viewers from the real battles no one wants to talk about.
It goes without saying Erika has a huge job in front of her. After years of ALLEGEDLY allowing her estranged husband to deposit stolen money into her corporate account, now she has to act like she knew nothing about it. Erika will also face the challenge of playing the poor divorcee who is ravaged by her ex-husband’s deceit and infidelity. I wonder if she called Eileen Davidson for some tips. The streets are saying Erika has the full support of her cast mates during her
performance trying times, but apparently Sutton Stracke is not playing along.
In 2019, Lisa Vanderpump quit Real Housewives of Beverly Hills during Season 9. If you need a refresher, the entire season revolved around “puppy-gate.” RHOBH star Dorit Kemsley and her husband, PK Kemsley, adopted a dog named Lucy from Vanderpump Dogs. Lucy allegedly bit their children, and PK. (I’m not even going to pretend to be upset that Lucy bit PK.)
Instead of returning Lucy to Vanderpump Dogs, as the adoption contract required, Dorit rehomed the pup. Lucy later turned up in a shelter. That is why reading contracts is important, Dorit.
Unless you have been living under a rock, this past week has brought us one of the major entertainment scandals of 2020. As if it couldn’t get any more wild. The story involves Hilaria Baldwin, wife of Alec Baldwin, and the accusations that she is posing as a Spanish woman. Hilaria, born “Hilary” was born and raised in Massachusetts in case you were wondering.
Erm, Hilaria, has been out there saying she’s from Spain. She maintains that she has been back and forth between the US and Spain for years. It turns out her family does live there now, but she didn’t exactly grow up there. The devil is in the details and they are confusing to say the least. But one major thing that landed Hilaria in hot water was old footage of her with a distinctly Spanish accent. She even forgot the English word for cucumber in one clip. While the internet is busy skewering her, at least Hilaria has one housewife in her corner.
As we head into the Christmas holiday, one person you won’t find decking the halls is Erika Jayne. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Catch Tom If You Can star would probably rather deck her soon-to-be ex-husband. Tom Girardi and Erika are in major trouble and Erika is doing the most to try and get out of it. After filing for divorce from Big Tommy, some very nasty scandals about Tom’s and Erika’s ALLEGED embezzling have emerged.
If you thought stealing money from innocent people was a drag, imagine telling the world an 81-year-old man is cheating on you. The crown is heavy darling, and you never wore it. Unsavory situations like assets being frozen, accidentally misplacing $2 million, and forced bankruptcy have lead Erika to… selling her clothes online so she can buy wig glue. Yes, Erika has sold things before, but never under the guise of desperation. And if you were waiting for a Chagall to pop up for the reasonable price of $74, you will have to continue waiting. Chicago courts have popped Erika’s pop up shop.
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?
