This weekend, probably on Saturday, I will post my Top Ten Real Housewives of all time. I just finished writing my part and have a couple of friends you may know from the radiator room contributing theirs. Now that I have mine hammered out ( I can’t believe how seriously I took this and how I agonized over my choices!) and Xanadude and The Lady Cocotte have their homework turned in, I can now go and read their lists.
While we are waiting until tomorrow (probably afternoon) for me to get all this information organized into a post, why don’t you guys post your top ten lists in comments. We are giving reasons why we placed our choices where we did, and feel free to do that as well.
For me, I needed to come up with some sort of guidelines to go by. So let me know how you chose. Just housewives you like? The most interesting? The most watchable? What drives your ranking?

Technical Note: I THINK the mobile device commenting issue may be fixed. I’ve been working on it all day. I hope it works, but let me know either way. It seems that the mobile plugins (and other stuff) on JetPack revert to the default settings when there is a major WordPress Update and I have to go in redo all the settings. How convenient!
I am going to try to hit the broad strokes of this “Secrets Revealed” since I doubt there will be any secrets revealed. Let’s find out!
Secret: Kyle didn’t consult LVP about building her closet. Because Faye Resnick was doing it. Though LVP tries to say Kyle did consult her and Kyle placates her with some nods.
Not so Secret: Porsha is a handful. Kyle keeps her busy will all sorts of lessons, horseback riding, piano, and acting. However, this doesn’t stop her from spending $10K plus on coins for Kim Kardashian’s stupid app. This was a major news story here locally, the app apparently requires a credit card number and the “coins” that the kids then buy to keep spending in the stores are VERY expensive. Portia is not disciplined for anything.
We saw Kim visit Kyle in Palm Springs. Apparently when they were young they used to play “store.” Kathy would take their real money for things around the house and then sell them to them again later.
Not so secret: Swans are mean. We are treated to footage of one of the swans biting both Ken and Lisa. This is old footage.
Secret: LVP makes Ken get botox. She’s says he is 70 and if he doesn’t need now, then when? Never. He’s 70 for fucksake.

Rinna has buckled to the pressure and changed her hair. I have always loved her hair. She admits it was partially because everyone on social media kept talking about how her hair never changes. I’ve kept pretty much the same hairstyle for the last 20 years too. I don’t see the problem. I do think about hacking it all off or shaving my head here and there, but that is when the crazy sets in. As women we all know a drastic hair change is the sign of some sort of mental instability cough Yolanda cough. LVP has had the same hair for forty years and no one really cares. Rinna’s hair is darker and combed back, I hope that when it is not combed back it just settles back to a similar style to her previous ones. That combed back look cough Yolanda cough gives me a lesbian vibe. NTTAWWT.
Andy compares Hannah from Below Deck Med to a mix between Kate Winslet and Jennifer Lawrence. Um, NOE. I think her face looks like cross being a chew oatmeal cookie and a doughnut. Is it just me?
Andy basically tells Rinna everyone hates her (actually it is simply a rabid group of LVPlunatics) and he has lots of things for her to answer to.
Was this all to insure your spot on the show next season? No she is there to do her job. Andy asks what her job is and she says be authentic and react to what is going on in the moment.
Why be the victim of LVP’s manipulations rather than taking responsibility for your own actions? SERIOUSLY? HOW MANY TIMES MUST THIS WOMAN OWN HER BEHAVIOR? She simply wants LVP to have the same integrity. That will never happen. Rinna says exactly the same thing. Because, it’s a very simple fucking concept.
I am once again very behind because I thought this was coming on at 9 p.m. Did they move it for Below Deck Mediterranean? I can’t wait for the new Below Deck. But first we have to get through this.
We begin with LVP’s dramatic revelation of being in an abusive relationship. Andy thinks it is odd that she didn’t share this information when others were talking about abusive relationships. Odd indeed. Kathryn says that LVP has been very vulnerable with her a couple of times. Eileen says that LVP has a lot more compassion for dogs than she does for people. Andy is not ride or die for LVP in this episode, that is for sure. Andy keeps asking LVP if she has a hard time apologizing.
Erika goes after Kathryn for her backstabbing ways. Oh wait, first we have to debate if it’s okay to use certain words. #WordPolice Erika points out that Kathryn called LVP a “harmless old lady.” Kathryn denies it. Erika reads Kathryn for filth.
Yolanda talks about all of LVPs manipulations. A viewer wants to know why Tom calling her an alligator didn’t bother her but everyone saying she is a spider in her web. Kathryn says she has never heard LVP say a bad word about anything. Was that before or after she got hearing aids? Because everyone else’s jaw dropped at this ludicrous form of sucking up. Can we people move on? EVERYONE with a brain knows that LVP is the biggest manipulator of them all and quite quick to make nasty comments about others. The only reason why we are having another bash LVP reunion is because on occasion certain casts feel the need to point it out for those random watchers who are slow on the uptake.

This afternoon Kim’s attorney came to court and admitted Kim doesn’t have proof of compliance with the court order. The judge withdrew the warrant and set a new court date for June 3rd. That is odd because last I heard she already had a court date for June 1st. Maybe that was with the Target judge. Anyway, she has 30 more days to attend as many meetings and do as much community service as possible. Delay, deny, lie, cry. etc. This is all Rinna and Eileen’s fault!
TMZ is now reporting that a judge (probably the one that handled the Beverly Hills case) has issued a bench warrant for Kim Richards. “9:40 AM PST — The bench warrant has now been signed by a judge. Bail was set at $26,000.” A bench warrant is an arrest warrant issued by a judge, usually for failure to appear in court. It could also be issued for failure to provide evidence of complying with the court’s order.
Usually with a bench warrant, cops are not sent to your door to arrest you (though I suppose the judge could ask for that if he was pissed off enough about the situation) and you can just come in and pay your bail and a new court date is set. The situation with the two cases and the two judges and two plea deals that seem to be allowed to be completed concurrently make this whole mess very confusing. The judge in the Target case should have given a sentence separate from the first one. Now we have one judge saying community labor and the other saying community service. Either way, I don’t think she has does much of anything to comply with either court.
It’s really NOT time for a Kim Richards update, but you will see a lot of them today because tonight is the season finale of The Mother Daughter Experiment and certain large tabloid sites always seem to have a post about nothing to coincide with certain TV shows. It’s almost like they are paid to do so. UPDATE: It appears that Kim’s dramatic hospitalization on the finale may not air. It’s not on the Lifetime schedule for tonight and there is nothing on the site about when it will air. To me this is the most important part of this post!
Today’s big story is essentially “Kim could get arrested if she doesn’t complete the terms of her plea deal.” Well, of course she could. But they are not going to show up at her Westwood apartment with an arrest warrant. She already has a hearing set on June 1, 2016 to show she has been compliant with the terms of her probation as stated in her plea deal. Which it certainly does not seem like she has been compliant at all.

As we saw on the reunion she is “keeping her recovery private” which is pretty much the opposite of any AA guidelines I have ever seen. She also still blames Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson for her situation rather than being remorseful and apologizing to them for her destructive behavior that concerned and disturbed them. She also didn’t show any remorse for all she has put Kyle and her family though.
Once again, I have blocked this hot mess of a season out of my mind. With three franchises of housewives going, we all seem to be suffering from housewives fatigue. The RHOBH however are not fatigued at all. LVP has taken time away from her pet cause of regulating the dietary habits of a small Chinese village to get into it with Eileen on Twitter. Eileen told LVP to get a conscience after LVP suggested Eileen get a life. It was all very “Fix that body! Fix that face!” Since the last episode I have blocked an estimated five hundred LVPlunatics who gleeful drilled me down to discover that my commenters paid for my lawyer in the Sheree Whitfield lawsuit and the fact that I think it is poetic justice when someone who lives off of millions acquired by knowingly selling snake oil to cancer patients then gets cancer and needs appropriate treatment. Shocking secrets all.
So let us gird our loins and prepare for LVP to cry and play the victim role and Andy Cohen to drag an alcoholic back on stage and interrogate her about “her lowest point.” That question to Kim can’t help but make me wonder what Andy Cohen’s lowest point was? I’d say the way he is treating Yolanda and Kim on this reunion has to be a major part of his moral abyss.
We begin with Yolanda storming off the set in tears. Daisy is in the makeup room to dry Yolanda’s tears. Erika goes back to the couches to fight for Yolanda’s honor. Yolanda comes back out. Andy asks Yolanda who she believes. Yolanda says she has a history of manipulating people to make a good storyline and it’s possible that LVP said that. Rinna walks off yelling at LVP to “own it!” Eileen chimes in.
