On last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Teddi Mellencamp hosted an All In retreat which no one wanted to go to at all, so they went all in on Kyle Richards instead.
Despite being invited, told it didn’t matter if she attended, and then ultimately being uninvited there is Sutton Stracke, riding in a car with Kyle and Erika Jayne to Teddi’s retreat.
Sutton, displaying her good southern manners, listens to Kyle prattle on about how busy she is. Being Kyle is an exhausting, nonstop, all-consuming, ever-involved endeavor of Kyle-ness. Like Kaftans Through the kloset karosel, these are the days of Kyle’s life. Sutton is actually only half-paying attention because she’s consumed with her own worries about dealing with Teddi. Even though Sutton apologized and received a reluctant OK to attend the retreat she’s still nervous about what to expect.
Well, it’s safe to say Denise Richards is
saving the season hellbent on raising some eyebrows on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. From the gate, we learned Denise has new drama with ex-husband and tiger blood connoisseur, Charlie Sheen. Then poor Denise suffered a rogue intestinal situation with an extensive multiple hernia operation. On the heels of recovering from the procedure, Denise and newish spouse, Aaron Phypers, found themselves on the receiving end of an invite from Bangs Kyle Richards, for a dinner party…
Any fan of RHOBH knows when a group sits down to eat a high-end meal consisting of proteins, salad, and
one or two of Mauricio Umansky’s edibles vodka, sparks are sure to fly. On this particular occasion, sparks did fly, which resulted in Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave crying. Because, of course it did. But fans got an extra treat when we received insight on controversial medical breakthroughs, courtesy of Aaron. Now I’m not saying there is a helicopter following Denise and Aaron’s every move right now, but they probably are.
What is it with former housewives not being able to leave the show in the past once they leave? Many housewives try to move on to different business ventures or try for their own spinoff. But a lot of them hang on to their housewives status with everything they have. Camille Grammer is no exception. She vowed she wouldn’t return for season 10, and to no surprise, she’s back! Even though she isn’t a full-time housewife anymore, Camille just can’t stay away from the drama.
Whether you like her or not, Camille has had so many iconic moments on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Now, she’s taking her pot-stirring ways to her social media. Camille spends a lot of time shading her former cast-mates on Twitter. So much so, that Teddi Mellancamp is apparently “frightened” by Camille’s excessive Twitter use. But now Camille is taking her shade to Instagram, and she didn’t disappoint.
We are three episodes into Season 10 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Last week’s episode aptly titled “First Impressions, True Confessions” saw the women attending a dinner party at Kyle Richards’. Everyone went around to share their thoughts on one housewife in a very pageant-approved way. This was until we got to Sutton Stracke, who stopped the pleasantries in their tracks and told Teddi Mellencamp she thought she was going to be “boring.”
Sutton has been getting a lot of heat online. For praising manners and class while being rude herself (fair). For not being relatable or entertaining. The list goes on. Jackie Goldschneider, polarizing enough on her own, from Real Housewives of New Jersey even came out to share she is not a fan of Sutton. In the height of what feels like a smear campaign against Sutton, Lisa Rinna came forward recently to say that the show needed Sutton.
Throw her to the wolves and the show will go on! Before Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premiered, the big question on everyone’s mind was “How will the show survive without Lisa Vanderpump? (Well, the mind of every LVP fan, at least…) However, after three incredibly well-received episodes, the answer to that question seems to be “Quite well, thank you very much.”
In a new interview with Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp, Andy Cohen opened up about why the show is working so well in its first LVP-free season.
Sutton Stracke has made quite the splash on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. We are only three episodes in and she has already proved to be someone worth talking about. Good or bad. So what have we learned about Sutton so far? As Lisa Rinna has told us (many times now), Sutton is rich rich. We get it, Rinna. Sutton likes couture clothing and will point that out to anyone. She is also big into manners, which became crystal clear in the last episode. Sutton practically threw a hissy fit over Kyle Richards not using place cards at her dinner party. Can you imagine!? But for someone so hellbent on proper manners, Sutton didn’t seem to mind telling Teddi Mellencamp to her face that she thought she would be boring. And then scoffed at Teddi being pregnant. As if someone who is pregnant could not be interesting. I know what you guys are going to say, Teddi is not, in fact, interesting. Ok, so Sutton might have a point, but it wasn’t a very polite one. Especially when it comes to trying to enjoy the company of new friends.
So it’s pretty obvious that Sutton is maybe not going to be a fan favorite. Is her bristling attitude why she was downgraded to a friend of instead of a full time cast member like we were all led to believe? Not sure. Sutton claims it’s because she didn’t show as much of her life as the producers would have liked but I’m not buying it. But with all the drama she’s bringing, it’s understandable that she’s ruffling a lot of feathers in Beverly Hills. Oh but not just Beverly Hills. Sutton has developed quite the reputation among housewives on the east coast too.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is BACK. This week’s episode was so good for so many reasons. Everyone is talking about “friend of” (why is she not a full Housewife?) Sutton Stracke’s lack of manners and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave’s inability to “be chill.” Don’t forget Denise Richard’s Big D*cked husband Aaron Phypers. Who’d have thought he would turn out to be a cancer-loving, self-healer? Or that he makes all his money by telling the Yolanda Hadid’s of the world that you can cure illness through sound amplification? This is the stuff we need!
This is the stuff you can’t write. It is the magic of having a cast free of Lisa Vanderpump’s Bobby Fischer-ing-manipulations. This is honest Beverly Hills-rich people-crazy talk and I’m here for it all! RHOBH doesn’t need LVP. They also don’t need to make up stories anymore. If this week’s episode proved anything, it’s that the truth is stranger than a fictional storyline. Andy Cohen even agrees!
Never say Erika Jayne can’t forgive and forget. Despite her reputation as The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ resident ice princess, Erika has shown season after season that she’s actually capable of leaving drama behind and forging genuine friendships with her list of former frenemies in the cast.
And apparently, the same thing can potentially be said for the drama that plays out this season between her Denise Richards. Recently, Erika opened up about what exactly it would take to mend her relationship with her one-time pal.
