The premier of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 11 is just around the corner. Thanks to alleged fraudster Erika
Chahoy Girardi Jayne, we actually might have a show on our hands. Erika joined the franchise in 2015, but this will be her first time with a storyline. Congrats, Erika! Sutton Stracke will finally hold a diamond and give fashion advice on pleated leather pants. We’ll also see two relatively new faces.
Crystal Kung Minkoff is coming on board and rumor has it, she won’t be a wallflower. Because wallflowers wilt in Beverly Hills. Kathy Hilton is an enigma, wrapped in Valentino and actual cash. She’s also Kyle Richards’ older sister who doesn’t take any of Kyle’s shit. Recently RHOBH alum Taylor Armstrong spoke on Kathy’s new gig and hinted it might not be all puppies and bags of diamonds between Kath and Kyle this season.
We all know that Real Housewives of Orange County isn’t the show that it used to be, but Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke are bringing a lot of drama. Sure, they’re also bringing some cringe (like when Braunwyn couldn’t use her own washing machine), annoyance, and fatigue to the audience, but in 2020, I guess I’ll take any TV content that I can get.
Aside from their own personal storylines, Kelly and Braunwyn are coming for each other. Over and over again. And the latest dig is a lot to unpack.
Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent and her man Randall Emmett have mostly been in the news as of late due to Lala’s growing baby bump. Lala proudly announced she and the rest of the Pump Rules crew made a pregnancy pact, and so far she, Stassi Schroeder, and Brittany Cartwright have kept their word. All three are pregnant, and are now pushing for Katie Maloney to join the fold.
Lala, of course, has also been busy getting into fights online. Her on again off again friendship with Scheana Marie is now off again. Scheana accused Lala of not supporting her during her miscarriage, and Lala denies all wrong doing. Lala also got into the middle of a feud between Real Housewives of Orange County stars Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke. Perhaps Lala should instead start focusing on fixing troubles closer to home. And that trouble would be with Randall.
I know the women of the modern-day Real Housewives of Beverly Hills would have you think that “bringing children into it” is as dramatic as it gets. But do you remember how this franchise got started? Shit was dark. Camille Grammer literally outted Taylor Armstrong’s domestic abuse story to the world. Mostly because Taylor was putting all the other Housewives in a very sticky situation. Then, season 2 ended with Russell Armstrong’s suicide. It was…a lot.
Since that time, Taylor has been on Couple’s Therapy with her new man, been remarried, and still continues to share her opinions on the cast like 7 seasons later. Hey. She worked hard for that zip code, baby.
This is it folks. We’ve finally reached the end of the road for this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The final part of the reunion also marks Denise Richards‘ last appearance as a housewife. The end of an era. It’s so that her friendship with Lisa Rinna ended up as a casualty in this reality war. The second half of the season was the ultimate did she or didn’t she regarding those Brandi Glanville hookup allegations.
Denise has used every tactic in the book this season to avoid taking accountability for her actions. She’s skipped events, made up fake family emergencies, and even used legal measures as a means of silence. Surely, someone who has nothing to hide wouldn’t jump through all of those hooks. Right? When you sign up to do a show like this, you know they’re going to show the good, the bad, and the hideous. This is Denise’s last stand. Let the fun begin!
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.
So many blasts from the pasts coming up on this episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It’s going to be so good to see so many former diamond holders under one roof. Wowza! Adrienne Maloof, Eileen Davidson, Camille Grammer, Kim Richards, and of course Brandi Glanville are all back. Things didn’t end well with Camille last year, so this should be EPIC.
Honestly, the real question is how much longer until THOSE Brandi & Denise Richards rumors begin. That’s been the topic on so many viewer’s minds heading into this season. With Brandi back into the fray, we are that much closer to THAT “Bravo, Bravo, fu**ing Bravo” moment. After two boring years, it’s so nice seeing Beverly Hills have this redemption season. Here we go!
Dana Wilkey might go down as one of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ greatest friend of. Some of you might be scratching your heads as to who the hell Dana is. Well, for starters, “did you hear? $25,000.” As in, sunglasses. $25,000 for sunglasses. Ringing a bell now?
Yes, Dana was one of the earliest (and thirstiest) of housewife friends. She was introduced to us by none other than Taylor Armstrong, so please direct all your grievances her way. Dana’s stint on RHOBH was short, but impactful. Boasting about absurdly expensive sunglasses even made Kyle Richards blanche at the time. And for that, I salute Dana. Or Pam. Or whatever she calls herself because there is the whole question of her real name too.
