Because, of course, they are! Real Housewives of Beverly Hills might be in a spot of trouble. Filming is currently underway for the show’s 10th season and by all accounts, it is
a bore fest struggling. With rumors of fledgling plot lines and no drama, the troops have been called in.
Last week we learned Camille Grammer was getting back in the saddle to
save the show light a fire underneath the current cast in hopes of upping the theatrics. Today we know other RHOBH alums are now in pa osition to pick up the slack, along with Camille 007. Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards, get ready, it’s your turn to show up and show out.
When you think about it, Bravo really changed the face of reality television. Sure, Bravo didn’t invent the genre, but over the years, the network has taken risks to start a wide variety of reality themed shows–from real estate to yachting and more. Many of these shows have been very successful and have been game changers in the reality television world.
Of course, the franchise Bravo is probably best known for is the Real Housewives. Who knew in 2006 that the franchise would still be going strong in 2019. From the original Real Housewives of Orange County, the show has landed in cities from New York to Dallas to Beverly Hills. One of the most successful spin-offs has been the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Recently, Peter Thomas, who used to be a regular on the show when married to Cynthia Bailey, shared his thoughts about how the men on the Housewives shows are portrayed.
Whether you agree with the results or not, the people have spoken. The People’s Choice Awards went down on November 10 and there were some big winners in the reality TV categories. And even the people who didn’t win showed up
to get some press enjoy the party.
I’m not gonna lie, I wish I got an invite because there were cast members from some of my favorite shows in attendance and I would just love to see them all interact. Real Housewives, Vanderpump Rules, The Bachelor, and Keeping Up With the Kardashians cast members showed up for the award show.
Ah, memories. I know there are some hard feelings about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Even Lisa Vanderpump haters were quietly appalled at how things went down last season. It seemed to last forever. We watched in fascination when Kyle Richards challenged Lisa and Ken Todd on their home turf. #goodbyekyle Our jaws dropped as Lisa played her last game of chess and quit. We were told of evil lies and betrayal, but got hung out to dry with no answers or confirmations.
To be blunt, the season was a wash. Fans began to side-eye the all-consuming dog drama and slowly discovered what the players were really hiding. Many viewers found the one saving grace was Camille Grammer Meyer. She rebelled against the #puppygate scandal and did not hesitate to call people out. She pulled certain cast members from their delusion cocoons. She also famously
spoke for all of us advised Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave to “shut it down” when Teddi attempted to speak during the finale party. After a turbulent appearance on the reunion, all of a sudden Camille was gone. As the last hope for anarchy in Beverly Hills faded, the rumor mill started pumping. Bravo doesn’t want Real Housewives of Dullsville! When all else fails, you know what to do! Call Camille Donatacci Grammer Meyer 007.
Let’s discuss Real Housewives of Beverly Hills! Now filming it’s 10th season, the cast is up two new ladies and down one star. According to ancient scrolls, #puppygate was the smokescreen created to avoid discussing “sensitive legal matters”. Dorit Kemsley and Kyle Richards both have husbands in hot water. They were also heavily involved with perpetuating the agonizing puppygate storyline. Coincidence? The scandal saw Lisa Vanderpump effectively giving the finger to her co-stars and the show, after being blamed for Dorit’s blunder with basic animal care.
Despite LVP’s departure, the sun has risen again on RHOBH. Or has it? Viewers hoping to get a taste of Mauricio Umansky’s multi-million dollar fraud lawsuit, will probably remain hungry. Those with a thirst for seeing PK Kemsley give Dorit condolences for her dead checking account, will most likely remain parched. So what will the ladies do to fill the time and keep us interested? The answer might be, nothing at all.
Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Meghan Edmonds has been very vocal this year regarding problems in her marriage. Back in June, it was revealed that her hubby Jim Edmonds had been sexting a woman who was not his lovely bride. Meghan gave periodic updates on the status of her marriage after the scandal and the couple seemed to be working through things. Of course, all that changed for the Edmonds in late October, when Meghan alleged that Jim had been having an inappropriate relationship with one of the family nannies.
Since then, the media has been full of details of the split between Meghan and Jim. He has veered from angry to conciliatory in statements about his marriage. Meghan blogged about Jim’s alleged inappropriate behavior, claiming he was “drinking and partying with much younger women.” Jim’s ex-wife number two, Allison Jayne Raski, called his marriage to Meghan a “nightmare” her family had to “endure.” His daughter Hayley Edmonds said she had been “waiting” for the divorce. Oh, the drama! Now, two Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ladies who know a thing or two about drama themselves have chimed in with their opinions on this depressing mess.
The upcoming season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is going to be drastically different. Two of the OG cast members, Lisa Vanderpump and Camille Grammer, will not be there to mix it up and call out the other ladies. Newbies Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke will be there to bring the drama instead. Those are some big Christian Louboutin’s to fill.
Denise Richards had her freshman season this past go around. And I’m sure she has a lot of wisdom to impart on Garcelle and Sutton. Such as how to get know-it-all Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave to stop talking, or ice queen Erika Jayne to start talking. But rumors abounded that Denise wouldn’t play a big part in the newest season due to her busy acting career. Luckily, the rumors aren’t true.
Well here’s some good news in the Land of Litigation, also known as Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It’s no secret most of the cast have been caught up in heavy financial issues. Kyle Richards’ husband Mauricio Umansky is currently under siege in a $32 million case over a Malibu mansion. Dorit and PK Kemsley were under the gun as well. They had several issues to contend with, including a lawsuit over Dorit’s swimwear line and an unpaid debt of PK’s from 2011. No one was more surprised than us when both of those cases were recently settled.
Erika Jayne’s husband has also seen his fair share of court cases. Not because he is an attorney, but because he owed someone money too. In January, Tom Girardi was slapped with a $15 million lawsuit on the grounds of using funds to maintain a lavish lifestyle. Although Tom denied these claims, his wife has been pretty vocal about how much cash it takes to put her together every day. In July that case was reportedly settled. Now there might be some light at the end of the tunnel for Erika and
her glam squad Tom. Apparently Tom has further made good on paying back funds, which is great, but they aren’t out of the woods quite yet. Hang in there, Mikey!
