Even though she dropped out of filming, Lisa Vanderpump was THE topic of conversation this season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills thanks to the puppygate saga. Unlike most seasons, the ladies did not wrap up that storyline with any sort of peaceful resolve.
Instead, it dragged on to a point where most of the Housewives are not even on speaking terms with Lisa. Until this day. Months after filming wrapped. She showed up to the Season 9 premiere party and left early before her co-stars arrived. Lisa even had an awkward encounter with Kyle Richards while they were shopping. Needless to say, the anticipation was as high as it could be for an LVP reunion appearance, but did she show up? Did she film a separate segment? How did it all go down?
Watching all the family scenes on this season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills makes me nostalgic for one of my all-time favorite Housewife hubbies–Paul Nassif. The scenes between Paul and then-wife Adrienne Maloof were often entertaining–and uncomfortable–as they bickered over everything from child-rearing to romance to how to order food in a restaurant. All that arguing eventually led to an acrimonious split, with the couple announcing their divorce in 2012.
Since that time, Paul and Adrienne have mended fences and are now on good terms. Paul, of course, has gone on to star on Botched, with former Real Housewives of Orange County hubby Terry Dubrow. And now Paul has some good news in the romance department to announce–he was recently engaged!
The drama on The Real Housewives of Potomac was at an all time high on last week’s episode. Karen Huger declined to go out with the ladies, leaving everyone confused. She chose to go “live” on Instagram rather than spend time with the other women. Grief makes you do crazy things I suppose!
In addition to the Karen drama, Ashley Darby confronted Candiace Dillard regarding comments about her fertility journey. Despite Ashley saying she was staying sober to get pregnant, she’d been drinking quite a lot in New Orleans. This did NOT sit well with Candiace. Tonight is sure to pick up where we left off with Ashley and Candiace at each other’s throats.
The Real Housewives of Potomac cast trip in New Orleans continues during tonight’s episode. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Real Housewives trip without some drama. All of these NOLA episodes have revolved around two fights: Karen Huger vs. Gizelle Bryant and Ashley Darby vs. Candiace Dillard. In contrast, Robyn Dixon, Katie Rost, and a pregnant Monique Samuels are just along as spectators.
And, yes, those same arguments continue on tonight’s new Real Housewives of Potomac episode.
There’s an illness and it’s spreading. It seems several former Housewives are plagued with, “Pretty Please Notice Me!?!” We’ve seen the symptoms in Kelly Bensimon, from Real Housewives of New York. Jill Zarin may also need to seek treatment. Then there is poor, long-term sufferer, Brandi Glanville. Our Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
We’ve recently seen Brandi pop up on an episode where she shared good times with Denise Richards. I’m still trying to root for you, Denise! But Brandi’s motives are clear. She wants us to know she is great pals with newbie Denise. #cheersbitch Now we know there is a vacancy on the show. A big gap needs to be filled. So is Brandi shooting her shot while shooting her mouth off, again? Now she is revealing the “truth” about her
failures bad luck. I’ll give you one guess on who Brandi blames for her downfall…
Karen Huger has a way of maintaining a safe distance from the melee while remaining the center of attention. The Real Housewives of Potomac really can’t get enough of the Grande Dame. Or perhaps it’s Gizelle Bryant’s fixation that the other ladies piggyback on.
Karen was right to keep her guard up. Though Gizelle backed down from a larger confrontation at lunch, she brought her passive aggressive self into Karen’s Instagram Live. Gizelle certainly loves an audience.
Hasn’t it been a great season of the Real Housewives of New York? These ladies bring it every year and this season is no exception. Real friendships, real grudges and real forgiveness separate this show from the others. Plus, the New York Housewives do it all with humor–and a sense of ridiculousness–that is often lacking from other Housewife shows.
Often ridiculous Ramona Singer has been back to her old ways this season–meaning she is completely self-centered and expects that everyone around her should feel blessed by her presence. Of course, Luann de Lesseps’ self-absorbed post-rehab behavior has made her the target of most of the other ladies, so Ramona has received a bit of a behavior pass this season. The Real Housewives of New York reunion recently taped, however, and apparently Ramona’s season pass was revoked by Dorinda Medley.
Y’all, Lala Kent, the woman who brings a baby bottle as her comfort item on group trips and openly trades sexual favors for luxury goods and services, has offered encouraging words to Luann de Lesseps about her sobriety journey.
After sloppily resisting arrest in December of 2017, Lu was offered probation in lieu of (get it?? in “Lu” of???) jail time. As part of her probation, Lu was prohibited from drinking. However, on May 23, after she admitted to consuming “2 glasses of mimosas” (suuure, Lu) after one of her cabaret shows. Luann entered into another plea deal involving intensive out-patient rehab. Lala has publicly and openly dealt with her own struggles with alcohol abuse. Lala also publicly credits Alcoholics Anonymous for saving her life. Lala, I don’t think “anonymous” means what you think it means.
