It’s been a little over two weeks since the faithful return of Real Housewives of New York City to our screens. New taglines and all! Since the break, fan-favorite Tinsley Mortimer has left the show and the city. The franchise has also had it’s lowest-rated episode in literal years. This week we watched the cast return to the Bezerkshires. Apparently, Jill Zarin was excluded from the trip by Dorinda Medley. Jill really has a habit of being excused from cast trips. *cough cough SCARY ISLAND cough* Sadly, I think we all would have much rather watched Jill and Dorinda grapple for the spotlight than Ramona Singer and Elyse Slaine fight over…I’m not even sure. How close of friends they are? Apparently it’s not that close, ladies.
It’s no secret that Ramona has always had a thirst for the spotlight on the show. In the previous episode, Sonja Morgan called Ramona out for always one-upping with “fake parties and fake friends.” This week Luann de Lesseps called Ramona the “queen of scenes.” She wants to make a scene and be aired doing so. Even Leah McSweeney claims Ramona tried to boot her off the show. I’m sure Leah’s “juvenile” by hysterical storylines irk Ramona to no end. Welp. Lu’s critique of the Ramona-coaster actually go beyond her self-recorded-at-home interviews.
Can I get an inflatable tube man dance and a wooooowwieeee!?! BAM! There’s some glitter in your face for good measure. Apparently, Lydia McLaughlin and her mother Judy Stirling from Real Housewives of Orange County are baaaAAAaack. Lydia was a total one season wonder…but TWICE. In season 8 Lydia boasted about her connection with her lord, Jesus. Meanwhile, her mom grappled with quitting “the pot” and keeping her feet off Vicki Gunvalson’s couch. In season 12 Lydia gave this show temporary new life when she rolled in looking like Charlie Chaplin. You know the scene. Never forget. I don’t even remember her mom in season 12. Must have been riveting.
Tamra Judge has even admitted she doesn’t think these recent seasons of RHOC have been their best. Can’t say I disagree. I miss the drama from Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino, and even Heather Dubrow. Call me crazy, but the TV was good. Lydia, on the other hand, already misses Vicki on her screen. Well with taste like that…
It’s a small world after all, at least as far as reality television is concerned. Former Girls Next Door star, and one of Hugh Hefner’s trio of blonde live-in girlfriends, Kendra Wilkinson, is starting a brand-new career. And she will be working for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards’ husband, Mauricio Umansky.
Kendra married NFL player Hank Baskett in June of 2009 at Hugh Hefner’s Playboy mansion. Not awkward to get married at your ex-boyfriend’s house, right?
Back in 2019, Sarah Paulson caused quite the stir among Lisa Vanderpump‘s army of
trolls, err I mean fans. Taking Vanity Fair‘s famed lie detector test, the Emmy-winning actress spilled the tea that the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star “wasn’t that nice” to her when they met.
Now, in a new interview during Watch What Happens Live, Sarah is doubling down on her assertion and opening up about what it felt like to have the LVP army come after her.
Lisa Vanderpump’s life is never boring, but right now she is dealing with a lot of changes. Vanderpump Rules axed stars Kristen Doute, Stassi Schroeder, Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens for racist behavior.
In addition, like the rest of us, Lisa has been dealing with the fall-out from the coronavirus epidemic. Lisa and her husband Ken Todd own four restaurants in Los Angeles: SUR, Villa Blanca, PUMP, and TomTom. They have been closed due to Covid-19, as has Vanderpump Cocktail Garden At Caesars Palace in Los Vegas.
Remember when celebrity sex tapes were a big deal? Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee had one. Kim Kardashian and Ray J. Then, of course, there was the sex tape Paris Hilton made with her then sleazy boyfriend Rick Soloman (who also dated Pam Anderson. Small world!) Rick sold the distribution rights himself to an adult film company that released the home movie under the title “One Night in Paris.” They’re so gross clever.
Once upon a time, celebrity sex tapes were considered shameful. Today, however, we live in a world that likes to reward attention-seeking and embarrassing behavior. So much so, we don’t even remember that a sex tape made the Kardashians. Seriously people, never forget that Kim’s sex tape made Kris Jenner the momager of momagers and spawned Keeping Up with the Kardashians. That family expertly used the tape (and Kim’s relationship to Paris) as a launchpad to money and lasting (yes, lasting) fame. So, it might have been a surprise to hear Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Kyle Richards discuss Paris’ major entre into celebrity on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen this week.
One major highlight on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this week was the always-welcome return of Kim Richards. Filming with Kyle Richards, the RHOBH OG underwent a surgery to correct her breast implants. And honestly, it was nice to see the sisters laughing, joking around and in a genuinely good place.
On the brand-new RHOBH Season 10 After Show, Kyle opened up about just how far her relationship with Kim has come and what it took to reach peace after years of on-camera feuding.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills finally returned this week! Which meant reigniting the feud between Denise Richards and the other ‘Wives over mom-shaming, mansplaining and sex talk hypocrisy.
Coming back from hiatus, Bravo also launched this season’s RHOBH After Show. In this week’s edition, Teddi Mellencamp takes Denise to task for her holier-than-thou attitude with some help from Kyle Richards.
