Everyone on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills is trying waywayway too hard to make things interesting after last season. They are working hard for that money, but they need a salary reduction anyway. They’re still lying and boring!
It’s apparent that production demanded Dorit Kemsley discuss her financial woes. Dorit is still not being honest. It’s also apparent that they put the smackdown on Erika Jayne Snore-ardi and told her to show more range than one of Aaron Phyper‘s weird oxygenic bioderminator ozzzzzcilation machines. Sutton Stracke is so much more interesting! And they hate her for it.
The other problem is the constant strategic alliances. These women are coming for the weakest links: pregnant Teddi Mellencamp and ill, clueless Denise Richards. They probably figured Denise has been through it all dealing with Charlie Sheen so what’s the difference.
It’s a new dawn on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills! Kyle Richards kaftans became legit, debuting at NY Fashion Week. Erika Jayne is trying a new way to take heat off her life – being friends with the women. Lisa Rinna is still lecturing everyone about owning it, while not owning that she is overjoyed to be No 1 Lisa. Also, we met new cast members Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke. So far I love them both!
All the ladies are in NYC for Kyle’s fashion show. One day before Kyle hasn’t even seen most of the collection she so-called designed. She calls Dorit Kemsley in a blind panic because she has no idea what do to prepare for a runway show. Like how to present the collection cohesively? How does one figure out who wears what? Dorit is appalled that Kyle has a line that she basically slapped her name on. Um, isn’t that what Dorit just finished Beverly Beach mediation over?
Oh friends, we have finally, finally said farewell to this interminable season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. And wow can I just say this show is in peril and I don’t like a single one of them! Part 3 of the reunion was largely a waste of time, so I’m going to spend this recap discussing the RHOBH in general.
There’s not much that can be said about this group except that the lack of awareness and (here comes Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave‘s favorite word!) accountability is astounding. Camille Grammer had it right when she hissed, “Hypocrisy at its finest!”
As the woman all all sat up there railing against Lisa Vanderpump for being manipulative and shielding parts of her life from the cameras, not a single one of them admitted to doing the same thing. So when Kyle Richards decided not to confront Dorit Kemsley about what really happened with Lucy, or confront Teddi about the inconsistencies in her stories and involvement, and instead completely deflected everything onto Lisa? Kyle wasn’t ‘manipulating’?
We have finally reached the end of the road with season 9 of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. The reunion concludes with part 3 tonight, and I still find it hilarious that, Camille Grammer, the person who caused the most drama this season isn’t even an official Housewife. What does that say about the status of this show with this cast? (FAIL)
Part 2 of the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion left off with Camille storming off the stage after accusing the women of a set-up. Following a pep talk from Andy Cohen an emotional Camille returns to the stage to confront her issues with Denise Richards. Denise lectures Camille for not thinking before she speaks and causing damage to her relationships with being thoughtless.
As usual Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills claimed something unbelievable was going to happen, but really nothing did. This show is having a midlife crisis. No one is asking it what work it had done, because it CLEARLY hasn’t been nipped, tucked, sucked, botoxed, or coolsculpted into its youthful, amazing form. God knows they’ve tried, but the way these women approach their physical reality (hide what they actually look like and won’t admit to what they’ve had done) is the same way they approach their reality.
They’ve all blamed Lisa Vanderpump for the show being inauthentic. Like who could forget the infamous Munchausen scenes when Kyle Richards desperately tried to coax Lisa into admitting that she was lying, only to have Lisa talk in circles until Lisa Rinna got blamed for the whole thing.
Tonight we enter part 2 of the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion, and shit is hitting the proverbial fan. Or I dunno – maybe someone really is flinging things at an actual fan? Fake hair, perhaps? Rhinestone clips from Claire’s Boutique? Unresolved emotions? Whatever the shit is, you know know it came from Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave‘s detox.
Anyway, Teddi finds herself under fire from Andy Cohen himself when he calls Teddi out for misrepresenting her role in Puppygate thus causing an irreparable rift between Lisa Vanderpump and the rest of the group. Teddi continues to spin on her hamster wheel (#AllIn) but even Dorit Kemsley starts to question Teddi’s version of accountability!
I’m just gonna be honest: I was bored watching the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion. Maybe it’s because this season has been so overblown. All the revelations about Lisa Vanderpump not showing were already out and it was just a big old meh. It was big old gushy fake love fest about how Kyle Richards is queen… And Erika Jayne needs one of Dorit Kemsley‘s CLIPs to be put over her mouth.
Speaking of clips, the ones in Dorit’s hair should have read, “Fake” “Broke” “Grifter” “Dog Dumper” “Liar” “Bad Designer” And worst of all, “PK’s Wife.” The rest of Dorit’s outfit looked like a disco ball blew up. Hey, they’re broke so reduce, reuse, recycle to make the most of life on limited means.
Tonight the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion we’ve all been waiting for begins! To be clear we’ve been waiting for this reunion because that means this ridiculous non-season is officially over!
All the ladies and Andy Cohen arrive on set expecting to finally get their long-awaited confrontation with Lisa Vanderpump to demand answers about PuppyGate, only to learn that Lisa isn’t showing up!
Of course this just means the women get to stick to their schtick of talking about Lisa instead of being real and honest about their own lives. That is until new scapegoat Camille Grammer shows up!
Kyle Richards, of course, makes LVP’s absence all about herself and bawls that she has paid the price for being honest with her former friend. Oh, yeah, sure Kyle…
Denise Richards opens up about Eloise’s rare disorder and becomes emotional discussing being a single mom and Aaron Phypers‘ role in her daughters’ lives. Lisa Rinna and Erika Jayne get candid about their sex lives and their husbands predilections, which honestly no one (literally no one) wants to hear about Tom Girardi doing sexy times!
Dorit Kemsley calls out Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave for her contribution to PuppyGate. Andy also shades Teddi for not being accountable for her role in the situation. I mean, LVP didn’t put a shock collar on Teddi. After all – she does have her own mind (when Kyle isn’t controlling her…)
Finally Camille joins the group and confronts Denise about being a two-faced friend. Camille also reflects about how her marriage and friendships have been affected by the wildfires and the show. Then Camille reveals where she stands with LVP and why she felt targeted by the other women.
