Oh, Lisa Vanderpump, what a tangled web you weave. First, she has a lot to celebrate. Lisa has announced starting a new podcast and a new show about Vanderpump Dogs! I can’t wait to hear all about “ponies…and sex…or lack thereof.” A regular rainbows and butterflies kind of gal. Unfortunately, though, LVP’s image has also been hit with quite a few blows recently.
Vila Blanca has closed for good, and even Adrienne Maloof is coming forward to remind us of all the storylines LVP has constructed over the years. I think the running total is at like 5? Well, unfortunately, it doesn’t look like there’s a reprieve in sight for this lady in pink.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne spent several seasons showing viewers very little of her actual life. This season viewers have watched Erika preparing to step onto the Broadway stage as Roxie in Chicago. Unfortunately, the show had to close in March of 2020 because of the coronavirus. Camille Grammer criticized Erika for using the show for self-promotion, and not featuring her real life. Erika has promoted her book and her music on the show a lot.
We also watched Erika verbally spar with Denise Richards’ husband, Aaron Phypers, during Season 10 of RHOBH. Erika does not appreciate husbands getting into housewives’ business.
Lawsuits, lawsuits! Get your piping hot lawsuits! Honestly, does anyone not have a lawsuit pending on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Even Denise Richards is getting in on the fun with a cease and desist this season! Now I know it’s not technically a lawsuit but it’s one step away.
But really, it’s kind of shocking how hard the cast is going in on Denise this season about not being who she says she is. Lisa Rinna might want Denise to “own it”. But if they are going to drag Denise for not “owning it”, they need to do some inventory of their own
messes lives. It’s well known that Kyle Richards’ husband, Mauricio Umansky, had a massive lawsuit against him. Let us not forget our scam queen, Dorit Kemsley and husband PK Kemsley. Their gambling debts cannot go unnoticed! And finally, Erika Jayne’s husband, Tom Girardi has multiple suits against him. Shall we own that, ladies?
Whether you believe Denise Richards hooked up with Brandi Glanville or not, many people feel that Brandi didn’t tell her story in an organic, spontaneous manner. You’re telling me that Brandi just happened to be sitting in Kim Richards‘ car with a microphone on and that Kyle Richards unexpectedly invited her in without any prior knowledge that Brandi had some tea to spill? I don’t think so.
There was nothing at-all-spontaneous about that one, especially since Brandi isn’t even a cast member on this show anymore. After Denise flipped out at the mention of a “threesome” in the vicinity of her teenage daughters’ ears, the women claimed that they felt mom-shamed. So, more likely than not, Kyle already heard about the hookup via Kim or Brandi herself because why would Kim get in full hair and makeup just to drop off some dresses to Kyle while she’s filming with Teddi Mellencamp? Sure, that wasn’t orchestrated at all…
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Teddi Mellencamp can breathe a sigh of relief. No, I’m not referring to her pot stirring on the show. That is far from over. But, thankfully, things seem to be going a lot better in the Mellencamp/Arroyave household after Teddi revealed that her infant daughter Dove was diagnosed with lambdoid craniosynostosis.
Teddi shared that her baby would have to go through neurosurgery in July. Now, the surgery is complete and Teddi has shared an update for anyone who has been following along with their family’s story.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ladies get miffed when the husbands get involved in the drama, but, apparently, it’s OK when the dads get involved. Teddi Mellencamp got overly offended when Brandi Glanville claimed that Denise Richards said Teddi lives in her dad’s shadow. Well, you know what, John Mellencamp’s shadow isn’t a bad place to live. Teddi has received many opportunities because of her famous last name. She should just embrace that… or just drop the “Mellencamp” and go with “Arroyave,” her last name via marriage.
Teddi shared some screenshots of a conversation she had with her famous father, poking fun at Denise and her mentions of Charlie Sheen. Then, Denise clapped back, insisting she never said that to Brandi. Then, Brandi filmed a video of her own father calling Brandi an “asshoe” (not an “asshole” but an “asshoe”) in addition to insisting that Brandi is not liar. How awkward. Well, last week, Denise’s dad Irving Richards addressed the Housewives drama in a classy way on his own Instagram page. Is it “bring your father to work” week on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? It sure feels like it.
Adrienne Maloof was not the first Housewife to ever pull a no-show at a reunion. But she was the first, and so far only (ahem, looking at you Lisa Vanderpump) ‘Wife to be fired for it after skipping the Season 3 sit-down for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
While she’s since mended fences with Bravo, the RHOBH alum has never really publicly addressed her controversial decision and subsequent firing. In a new interview, Adrienne is finally speaking out about whether she regrets missing the reunion and compares her experience to LVP‘s disgraceful no-show six years later.
The future of Vanderpump Rules is seemingly up in the air after Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Brett Caprioni, and Max Boyens got fired for their racially offensive behaviors. Plus, filming has been put on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic. And, let’s be honest, the show isn’t nearly as good as it used to be when they all lived in
shitty dilapidated apartments.
Even with the Vanderpump Rules hiatus, the show’s namesake Lisa Vanderpump is keeping busy at her pink-filled mansion, Villa Rosa. However, her restaurants have been closed (thanks to the pandemic), with Villa Blanca seemingly closing down for good. Sure, LVP has Vanderpump Dogs going during this time. Oh, and that Vanderpump Dogs spin-off show is officially happening. And now, Lisa is adding another show to the list, but not a reality show this time around.
