A new day, a new lawsuit involving a Bravolebrity. We all know it’s XXPen$ive to be Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne. Given her husband, Tom Girardi’s seemingly constant legal woes, we also know how many f***s she gives about it all. That is zero-zero-zero f***s to be exact.
Erika is a hard shell to crack. Slowly but surely, we’ve come to know more sides of her each season she appears on RHOBH. For instance, she went from patting her puss to being an Ice Queen to being Dorit Kemsley’s most compassionate friend. Growth? And just a few episodes back, viewers witnessed her cry insincere tears to Tom about how much his financial emotional support means to her. Still, Erika remains one of the most guarded housewives in the franchise. So, she probably isn’t too happy about the latest headlines she’s being dragged into.
Camille Grammer carried Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 9 on her back, especially after Lisa Vanderpump exited the series. With everyone else playing nice and doing what they could to keep their skeletons in their closets, Camille came in hot. She called out Dorit Kemsley for her financial issues. She randomly beefed with Denise Richards.
Camille feuded with Kyle Richards on Twitter. She shaded Kyle and Teddi Mellencamp for their super close friendship, saying Teddi is “up Kyle’s ass,”
which is true. She more than earned a diamond for Season 10, but it just didn’t happen. Aside from losing that full-time status (again), Camille didn’t even get asked to film for Season 10 until late into the season. We haven’t seen her at all so far.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Dorit Kemsley and Kyle Richards are already at odds, and the season just started! Kyle asked for Dorit’s help with her fashion show. But Kyle took offense when the swimsuit designer claimed that she saved Kyle’s fashion extravaganza from flopping.
We all know that Kyle is besties with accountability coach Teddi Mellencamp. Dorit arrived late to Teddi’s retreat, glammed up to the max. Kyle knew that Dorit was late because she had an appointment with her glam squad, not because she took her children to school. Then Dorit told Kyle that she wanted to leave early because Teddi didn’t appreciate the fact that Dorit had bothered to drag her fabulous self to the event.
Kyle Richards really came in hot during the last episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She argued with Dorit Kemsley and Lisa Rinna in addition to taking jabs at Denise Richards‘ personal appearance. Kyle took up for Teddi Mellencamp after Dorit showed up to Teddi’s event late (which she informed Teddi of ahead of time) in full-on glam. When Denise reminded Kyle, “You knew she was coming late,” Kyle didn’t care. Instead, she just kept on going, saying, “Hold on, hold on, hold on. So, it’s not just coming in at 1 o’clock. It’s coming in with your Barbie glam look for a workout when you’re not even working out.”
She kept dissing Dorit’s Instagram photoshoot, which is so ironic because now she’s giving Dorit exactly what she wanted: attention for these photos. Denise asked Kyle, “Why are you judging her? You’re judging her, Kyle.” Kyle rebutted that “it’s not genuine.” Denise pointed out the obvious, asking, “So, she looks like a f*cking model. Who cares?” Then, when Denise innocently got up to hit the ice cream sundae bar, Kyle dissed her looks. Kyle commented, “This one, who’s never worn anything but a f*cking mop top ponytail in her whole life is all of a sudden all like… really? Ragamuffin.” During her confessional, she laughed it off, of course, and remarked, “‘Ragamuffin’ is not the nicest word, but I could have said worse.” You did, Kyle.
Even though she got unceremoniously demoted and ultimately fired from Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalson is trying her hardest to make sure that we still associate her with the Real Housewives franchise. She insists that she “started” this whole thing when she has always been a cast member and never had an role in the show’s production.
However, Vicki isn’t the only one who thinks she’s the one behind the Real Housewives phenomenon. Real Housewives of New York OG Ramona Singer swears that no one watched Real Housewives of Orange County and that Real Housewives of New York is the show that made the franchise a big deal. Vicki and Ramona have debated this back and forth in various interview comments. And Vicki is still keeping this conversation going, of course.
Season 10 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is underway and so far, so good! In case you missed it, this season welcomed both Garcelle Beauvais as a housewife and Sutton Stracke as a friend of. I have high hopes for Garcelle but I am absolutely LIVING for Sutton this year. She was just as uninterested in Kyle Richards‘ “fashion” and Teddi Mellencamp‘s pregnancy as I was in the premiere episode of the season. Since then, she’s only gotten better.
In episode 3 Sutton went so far as to tell Teddi to her face what we have all been thinking. She is boring and pregnancy isn’t her area of interest. Yea, yea, yea, she followed it up with saying she now finds Teddi interesting, but not until after Teddi left the table to sob. Bless this Southern belle in couture mess. She has been an absolute joy to watch and she’s finally sharing her reaction to seeing herself on the show.
Can anyone remember the days when Lisa Vanderpump and Brandi Glanville were actually friends? I have to reach so far back into my memory of days past on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to go there. I do know, however, that the downfall of their relationship was epic! If you’d like to take that stroll down memory lane, we have a thrilling retrospective of Brandi’s time on RHOBH.
Since both women have been off the show – at least in a full-time capacity – they’ve taken different paths. LVP is adding to her restaurant empire and watching 40-somethings self-destruct on Vanderpump Rules. Meanwhile Brandi has made a career out of being a reality star. She has also “written” some entertaining books and has a successful podcast where she can run her big mouth mostly about LVP. Recently, Brandi spilled some interesting tea about her former bestie turned nemesis.
I’m starting to think maybe Denise Richards doesn’t have the best taste in men. Don’t get me wrong, I love her, I really do. But after seeing her current husband, Aaron Phypers bonkers lecture on the latest episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I’m starting to really wonder. In case you missed it, Aaron gave a very questionable speech on atoms and cancer at Kyle Richards‘ dinner party. As if that wasn’t strange enough, he then said people were following them as Denise tried (unsuccessfully) to shush him for their “safety”. Oof. If you haven’t watched, I highly recommend so you know what you’re dealing with this season. At the very least, read the recap.
But it’s not just Aaron that is out there. Remember Denise’s ex is none other than Charlie Sheen. And her ongoing drama with him was featured on the first episode of RHOBH this season. While out for drinks before Kyle’s fashion show, Teddi Mellencamp decided to alert Denise to something she saw in the press. That something in question was Charlie saying he couldn’t afford to pay for child support, despite Denise’s instance that he doesn’t anyway. The women, including Erika Jayne, tried in vain to convince Denise to take this to court. But despite Teddi telling Denise that Charlie said she was “behaving like a coward”, Denise wouldn’t budge. According to Denise, “I’ve been called worse by him. Actually, that’s tame.” I love how unflappable Denise is.
