There were many unanswered questions when Real Housewives of Beverly Hills concluded Season 9. Literally though, the women refused to address almost anything remotely personal; i.e. lawsuits, plastic surgery, and finances.
The only that that was very clear is that Camille Grammer is on the outs with the RHOBH ladies. Sure, she got a long hug from latex-clad Lisa Rinna. But, other than that, bridesmaid Kyle Richards sided with Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave against Camille, which didn’t surprise Camille, since she declared that Teddi is “up Kyle’s ass.” Camille and Denise Richards’ had strong tension that came out of nowhere. And then there’s Erika Jayne, who doesn’t seem to care about
anything Camille at all. Camille was really marching into the lions den when she showed up to film, but it turns out she was already very much excluded before the reunion taping.
Even though all of the full-time Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast members are on the outs with Lisa Vanderpump, the end of her relationship with Kyle Richards stings the most. They were the two remaining OG cast members. Now, Kyle is the sole original remaining (as a full-time cast member, anyway), with Erika Jayne crowning her as the “queen” of the cast during the Season 9 reunion.
Many fans (adamantly) took sides in the Lisa vs. Kyle feud. Meanwhile, others wanted them to get back to the fun times they use to have
teaming up against other cast members. Reunion host and Real Housewives executive producer Andy Cohen is rooting for a reconciliation and he thinks he know what it will take for them to get back on good terms.
Denise Richards gave Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans some much-needed comic relief this season, but not much else. She told Camille Grammer to back off while she was wearing a fur coat and an Agency hat during the finale, but other than that, Denise had zero conflict this season.
Well, until the reunion. She and Camille randomly went at it. Camille said she didn’t like Denise and that she was boring this past season. Denise asked if Camille was “on something” during the taping. Then, Camille wondered if Denise was “on something” during a recent Watch What Happens Live appearance. In response, Denise took to Twitter to make a shocking claim about the RHOBH OG.
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!
Season 1 Camille Grammer has been back with a vengence on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She has been polarizing, but in between the random statements we can’t quite explain, she has been making a lot of sense. She is the only one who pointed out Dorit Kemsley’s fishy finances on the show.
Now, she’s calling out Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave for being “up Kyle Richards’ ass” during tonight’s reunion episode.
