The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has had one of the most interesting casts of any of the Housewife shows-from actual millionaires to poseurs and real-life actresses. Since the show began in 2010, 17 ladies have been cast as full-time Housewives. Two OG’s from Season 1 remain-Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump (we will see what happens after this season, though)! And snarky Camille Grammer has been either a Friend of or Guest on every season but one after leaving as a full-time Housewife after Season 2.
This season, two other former Housewives are coming back for at least one appearance. And they happen to be two of the most talked about-and polarizing-cast members of any of the Housewife shows-former child star Kim Richards and volatile, often-acts-like-a-child Brandi Glanville. And current cast member Erika Jayne recently shared her thoughts about the return of Kim and Brandi.
It would be difficult to dispute that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Lisa Rinna is the queen of the hustle. From hawking adult diapers to shilling her clothing line on QVC, Lisa will do anything to make a buck. Nothing wrong with that. For the right price, who wouldn’t don a diaper on television?
Lisa’s favorite sideline over the past few years, however, has been as a “momager,” attempting to launch her daughters with Harry Hamlin into modeling careers ala Yolanda Hadid. Delilah Hamlin and Amelia Hamlin have had some success in the modeling world so far, with magazine covers and ad campaigns. And now, there is an unconfirmed report that a possible reality show starring the Hamlin sisters in the works.
OK-who wants to immediately vacation at Baha Mar in the Bahamas? I do! The resort is the kind of place where you can swim, golf, see baby flamingos and luxuriate in suites bigger than your own house. And of course, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills couldn’t visit such a beautiful place without leaving their designer mark upon it.
Accusations of half-truths, bad intentions and revenge are on the menu at the resort courtesy of Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and Dorit Kemsley. With claims of Lisa Vanderpump being the evil chef who serves up manipulation stew. And stirring the pot to make sure that everything bubbles to the surface is none other than sous chef Lisa Rinna. Although she laid low last season, the Chef of Instigation is back with a vengeance. And making sure she is front and center in the drama of Dog Gate.
We all know that being a Housewife comes with some great perks. Public exposure on a popular television show. Endless opportunities to self-promote whatever it is you are selling. Being a Housewife has led some anonymous women to fame and fortune and helped others in a career lull to re-invent themselves ala Lisa Rinna.
Sounds good so far. But there is sometimes a downside for Real Housewives. And that is the battering they can take on social media. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Erika Jayne has just found out how low the comments can go when you are famous. And you have a son who is a police officer.
Over the years, we have come to know the Real Housewives for many things. Living in big houses. Designer clothing. Handbags that cost more than your car. Businesses that seem to appear and disappear overnight. And the occasional arrest.
The one thing that the Real Housewives might be best known for, however, is their love of a good feud. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump have had their skirmishes throughout the years. But they have never had an epic Housewives fight. And certainly, have never stopped speaking. Until now.
There’s nothing like some mother/child time, right? Kelly Dodd took her daughter Jolie to Phoenix via private jet. How Lala Kent of her! Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans took the low key route. She just posted a selfie with her baby girl.
Kristin Cavallari shared photos with her children taking care of a baby bird. Shamari DeVoe shared a throwback photo breastfeeding her twin boys. This is probably going to get some attention, because… well, it’s 2019. People are just looking for reasons to be offended these days.
In an armor-clad blush lingerie Instagram selfie, Yolanda Hadid took her 55-year-old body-ody-ody to the social media airwaves and captioned beside it her secret to success: “Living in a body free of breast implants, fillers, botox, extensions and all the bulls—t I thought I needed in order to keep up with what society conditioned me to believe what a sexy woman should look like until the toxicity of it all almost killed me.”
Who knew Yolanda was suffering so severely from being of victim of
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Yolanda Hadid is starting the New Year off in a more natural state. Yolanda, who suffers from Lyme disease (in case you have been hiding under a rock for years and didn’t know0, left RHOBH after Season 6. Of course, Yolanda shared with fans that it was her decision to quit the show. They all say that. Right?
Other sources said that Yolanda decided to leave after she was offered a gig as to be a Friend of the Housewives (oh, the horror!) instead of a full-time cast member. There was also word that Bravo wanted to capture something other than Lyme disease as Yolanda’s storyline, and that may have been the breaking point.
