The Denise Richards drama continues to dominate Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It seems like every day, another cast mate is coming out against her. I wonder if that has anything to do with Denise being a stand out fan favorite on her first season of the show. Either way, we are all well aware that Denise is going to be a key figure in this season’s story line. The women all seem fixated on whether or not she had an affair with Brandi Glanville. This is something Denise has denied over and over. Quite frankly, I don’t know why the women care so much. What goes on in Denise’s marriage and private life is her business. But I guess something had to happen this season so here we are.
Another major point of contention is that Denise refuses to talk about her issues on camera. We have seen the infamous trailer, where Denise shouts “Bravo” multiple times in an effort to stop filming. The other women of RHOBH, despite hiding their own skeletons, seem to take major issue with this one. But given how many lawsuits they’ve been hiding on their own, is it really fair?
From the moment he burst onto the screen back in 2016, Dorit Kemsley‘s husband PK Kemsley has been a polarizing figure on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In fact, the term “polarizing” is undoubtedly a bit of an understatement.
Like the Simon Van Kempens, Slade Smileys and Jim Marcheses that came before him, the British talent manager quickly became infamous within the Housewives franchise for jumping into the fray with the women and, after seeing PK declare “I hope it’s not over, I love drama” in the Season 10 trailer, his fashionista wife is opening up in a new interview about just how in the mix her opinionated hubby gets this year.
Usually, this time of year is consumed by tax-related worries. April 15 is around the corner, after all. However, that deadline has been pushed to July in response to the coronavirus pandemic. There’s no doubt about it, this is a difficult time for all of us. The coronavirus has changed everything. Essential workers are putting themselves at risk on the front lines. Many people have lost their jobs. So many of us are working at home while taking care of relatives and homeschooling kids. Everyone has had to adjust in some way.
At the very least, there are still some small joys to provide escapism, like reality TV for instance. Some of our readers are binge watching old favorites. Others remember the day of the week based on the new show that is on that night. Yes, there are more important things going on in the world, absolutely. But, at least reality TV has given us all some entertainment and a community for discussion.
The news cycle never stops. Even in a global pandemic, reality stars are thirsting for attention (i.e. going live on Instagram and making embarrassing Tik Tok videos). Not only that, but there are some old episodes and news stories that will be interesting forever. One thing that a lot of reality stars have in common, other than extreme thirst and a propensity for cosmetic enhancement, is an issue with taxes. How do so many public figures think they can get away with not paying taxes when they’re in the spotlight? Can’t they just hire someone to be on top of this? Overall, it makes zero sense, yet it happens a lot. Let’s take a look back at some of the reality TV star tax scandals throughout the years.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Dorit Kemsley and her husband, PK Kemsley, were responsible for all the drama last season. They adopted an adorable puppy from Vanderpump Dogs, and then Dorit rehomed the pup instead of returning Lucy to the organization. Lucy ended up in a shelter.
Lisa Vanderpump quit RHOBH after “puppy gate.” And somehow, all of the financial and legal issues engulfing the cast stayed off the show, and off viewer’s radars. Finally, Camille Grammer told the Beverly Hills Housewives that PK owed millions of dollars to Camille’s friend. Boom! Mic drop.
We are so close to the next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills I can taste it! We even got to see the new taglines this week. Season 10 premieres April 15th to be exact and I think people’s anticipation of the show is mixed. Some think the show will be nothing but a snoozefest without Lisa Vanderpump. Let’s face it, last season wasn’t exactly interesting once Lisa was done filming with the rest of the cast. But some just really need some classic housewives entertainment to get their mind off troubling times. Finally, there are those die hard fans who are pumped (too soon?) for another season of the popular and opulent franchise.
So what category do I fall into? The one where there is drama and preferably, one where everyone puts their cards out on the table. I have to admit, I haven’t enjoyed the lack of transparency in the last few seasons. If Kyle Richards’ husband Mauricio Umansky is getting sued for $32 million, I want to hear about it! And if Dorit Kemsley is really in deep financial doo doo, I want to hear about that too. We all know that husband PK Kemsley has been in the media (and called out by Camille Grammer) for owing people money for some time now. Let’s not pretend, folks.
Camille Grammer isn’t exactly my favorite housewife. Despite being a pot-stirring “friend of” last season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I’m tired of her always playing the victim and accusing everyone of attacking her. Sure, I don’t mind that she called out Dorit Kemsley and husband PK Kemsley for owing people money. But true to form, she padded that attempted take down in by telling us that she was forced to buy Burberry on consignment after losing her house in the California wildfires. The horror people, the horror. As much as I felt sorry for her losing her house, I thought maybe she would be in a slightly different head space and maybe not in the mood to try and disparage Dorit in that moment. But then I guess she wouldn’t be the Camille we all know and
Let’s admit it” Camille is working hard to get that diamond back and complaining every step of the way!
Finally! In the middle of this quarantine, we have been blessed with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 10 trailer. Despite rumors that the season is “dull,” the trailer really delivers. There is a lot going on. Dorit Kemsley’s husband PK Kemsley remarks, “I hope it’s not over. I love drama.” Same here, PK. Same here.
Season 10 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills hasn’t even started yet but there is so much gossip coming out of this cast that I’m living for it all. The cast has been on what seems like a press tour, responding to all kinds of rumors about what’s going to happen this season. It does make me wonder if they can all live up to the hype now that we are going to see our first season minus Lisa Vanderpump. It does kind of seem like the cast is trying pretty hard to let us all know we won’t be disappointed and I hope we aren’t.
So let’s do a quick recap of what all the fuss has been about. First, there was the addition of new cast members Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke to help add some flair to the existing group. Then there are the lawsuits – Erika Jayne and husband Tom Girardi have been sued for an unpaid debt, calling the lawsuit a “publicity stunt”. Dorit Kemsley has not only been hounded by not only her own lawsuit but divorce rumors from husband PK Kemsley . They have both denied that they are headed for a split and tried hard to do some much needed damage control. Next we find out that Kim Richards is putting out an “unafraid and unapologetic” memoir that sister Kyle Richards didn’t even know she was writing.
Finally we come to the biggest doozy of them all, which will likely be a central story line on the season: the Denise Richards and Brandi Glanville hookup rumors. Unless you’ve been living under a rock completely devoid of all housewives news, you have likely heard plenty about this, with multiple cast members weighing in on their thoughts. Denise also responded to the rumors, vehemently denying she hooked up with Brandi or that she has an open marriage. Whew that was a ride.
