Things are really heating up on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. While the ladies are busy on a luxurious vacation in Rome, it’s been anything but relaxing.
So far, all they have done is take swipe after swipe at Denise Richards. They finally moved on from the whole “Denise is mom-shaming me for not wanting to talk about threesomes in front of her own kids”. Now the cast is on to whether or not Brandi Glanville is telling the truth about them hooking up.
Kyle Richards is on my sh*t list. She has been for a few seasons now. Ok, if I’m being totally honest, I have never cared for Kyle. Her desire to climb to the top of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills foodchain has always rubbed me the wrong way. But after chasing out Lisa Vanderpump, she has for the most part, gotten her way.
So it’s no surprise that Kyle has changed targets this season. Her latest prey is Denise Richards and who she happens to be sleeping with, mainly, Brandi Glanville. The alleged affair between Brandi and Denise is the only real storyline happening on RHOBH. And Kyle is happy to be the ringleader after suddenly siding with Brandi about the whole story.
Leah McSweeney is a lot of things. New cast member on Real Housewives of New York. Drunken mess. Ramona Singer frenemy. Fan favorite. It’s true, fans love Leah. She’s a breath of fresh air on what I would call a vintage franchise. Leah has even called for more diversity amongst the cast, something we haven’t seen since Jules Wainstein in season 8.
But Leah isn’t without controversy. She has a past of controversial statements. She wrote a piece about “toxic femininity”. And according to Ramona, she has a serious drinking problem. That might have something to do with Leah claiming Ramona poops during sex in a now-infamous Cameo. But either way, Leah is going there and Ramona, for once, is powerless to stop her.
It wouldn’t be an episode of Real Housewives of New York if there wasn’t speculation about the women’s drinking. This week we got the extra twist of Ramona Singer telling Dorinda Medley to go to AA. Yeah, that would make anyone upset. So how does Dorinda cope? By getting another drink and slamming Luann de Lesseps for her mug shot… AGAIN. In the end, there was a truce to never speak about each other’s drinking. Ummm…
The women have been talking about drinking nonstop this year. Ramona thinks she is the only New York Housewife without an alcohol problem. Meanwhile, Dorinda, who we all saw encourage Lu to have her first drink on camera, has said they’re just not a cast that’s great a day drinking. Well, that’s putting it lightly! Dorinda has also said this season was a tough one to watch. For you and me both, girl.
Recently, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Brandi Glanville spilled her guts to Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp about what Denise Richards had been saying behind their backs. She also confided that she and Denise slept together.
The problem was that Brandi was allegedly told that Denise, and her husband, Aaron Phypers had a special arrangement in their marriage. They don’t. And Denise denied that the hook up happened. The other problem is Brandi said this on camera in front of Teddi, Kyle, and Kyle’s sister, Kim Richards.
What could have been missing from the Real Housewives of New York seasonal trip to the Berkshires? It’s not over yet, but the RHONY ladies already had an explosive blowup, fueled by a copious amount of alcohol,
Luann de Lesseps massive ego, and Dorinda Medley’s unhinged behavior. Sonja Morgan was cheerfully tipsy until she brought up the lack of compensation for appearing in Luann’s cabaret. The evening went to hell quickly afterward.
Would the evening have ended differently if the guest list was altered? The perfect person would have long-standing relationships with most of the women, would be able to speak up to Dorinda, and would be desperate to get back on the show. That sounds like Jill Zarin. And two weeks ago, Jill was indignantly claiming that Dorinda had blocked her from participating in the cast trip. After seeing last week’s episode, did Jill really feel like she missed out on something?
It seems like our favorite housewives are making good use of their quarantine by “freshening up”. Chances are, if you’re following any of them on Instagram, you’ve seen their before and after photos.
Teresa Giudice posted a pic with her doctor about getting her veins done. Dorit Kemsley used the same Instagram posting formula about getting new teeth. And we just told you about Margaret Josephs’ doctor showing off her new facelift, amongst some other procedures.
Never a dull moment with the Real Housewives of New York ladies. They’ve picked it up after their recently low ratings. If you missed the latest episode, I highly recommend you stop what you’re doing immediately and get watching. Viewers saw the most recent fight between Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley escalate to new highs. Well, maybe not *so* new. Dorinda did recycle her drunk mugshot line and her Jovani ranting. But anyways. The argument was about whether or not Sonja Morgan should be paid for her time in Lu’s cabaret show. It turned into Lu sobbing while Ramona Singer and Leah McSweeny scoot her into a car to visit a pub. Friends forever!
The episode semi-resolved the issue when everyone woke up and basically admitted they had no idea what happened the night before. Now we’re getting Dorinda’s take after she’s gotten a chance to watch herself back. If you remember, she’s already said it’s been a tough year to watch. Sounds like this week was no exception.
