The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion begins with Andy telling everyone that Adrienne is not longer with us. I love how he says that her last act as a housewife is being a chickenshit. Lisa says that if you sign up to be on a reality show you can’t then sue when someone brings things up about you. Yolanda says that her not returning is a known consequence of not showing up for the finale. Lisa says that Adrienne is leaking stories to the tabloids saying that she quit, when that is not true and Lisa knows she wanted to stay. Even Kyle is doing some back-pedaling to distance herself from Adrienne.
Andy still won’t say what Brandi said about Adrienne. I guess the lawsuit is still in place. But we do get a retrospective of all of Brandi’s altercations with Adrienne and Paul. It’s quite the body of work for a new housewife. When Bernie put out negative info in the media about Paul, Paul called Brandi and apologized to her. Brandi clears up the lawsuit/letter debate by saying that she was friends with someone named Geneva who worked for Adrienne. Adrienne thought that Geneva was telling Brandi information so Adrienne sent Geneva a letter with Brandi’s name included. It sounds like a basic cease and desist letter Geneva’s lawyer called Brandi’s lawyer and said that Adrienne’s lawyer was going to go forward with a lawsuit if Brandi (and Geneva) did not agree to sign a non-disclosure. Did everyone follow that? Good.
Kyle says that her favorite part of the season was the big party in Ojai. Thus ends the Kyle segment, apparently. Continue reading

This episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is going to be fabulous if for no other reason than it is Adrienne Maloof’s last episode! I love Yolanda. Jennifer goes and drags Marisa back over to Brandi and Yolanda (and Lisa) to finish the conversation. Brandi tells Marisa that rather than putting her husband down by telling the entire world she wants to sleep with someone new, they should both give each other a hall pass. Lisa looks physically ill but she makes Marisa tell Brandi who said she would sleep with married men (It was Faye). Yolanda gives Marisa a lecture on trash talking your friends in front of others and the conflab is finally over.
Linda Foster and Taylor are besties. Taylor tells her that it has been hard for her be nice to Yolanda and she cries and asks Linda if it is okay with her being friends with Yolanda. Linda says she is fine with it. Meanwhile, Lisa has cornered Faye and Faye says that Lisa uses Brandi to get back at Adrienne. Lisa sets her straight on that with no effort whatsoever so Faye changes tack to say that Lisa defends her and brings up the infamous bathroom sex at the white party. Lisa was the one to walk into the bathroom and pull Brandi out so she would not stay in there making out. That was all that happened. Interestingly, Faye has the tabloid version. It would seem that Faye is the mouthpiece for Kyle AND Adrienne. Faye then makes the exact same chess reference that Kyle made on last season’s reunion. I would imagine if you held a gun to Faye and Kyle’s heads, neither of them could tell you the first thing about how to play chess. Interesting they both use a chess analogy though, right? Lisa in her talking head says, “Checkmate, bitch!” This scene is hilarious. Kyle jumps up to intervene while saying in her talking head, “I really don’t like getting in other people’s battles.” Enough airtime for Faye, let’s move on to Ken and Lisa! Or at least watch Adrienne cry. Continue reading

Okay this is so confusing. I suppose last week’s RHOBH was an extended episode and Vanderpump Rules was shortened in the world of Bravo which explains why tonight’s episode of Vanderpump Rules is labeled episode one, but I really hate this blurring of the lines. Sigh. Anyway we are back to the scene of Brandi and Scheana crying which I thought we got past last week. The big thing they didn’t include then was Brandi saying that even if Eddie is cheating on Leann she hopes they don’t divorce because she doesn’t want her kids going through that again. She has real tears, y’all. If she did say that last time we saw this scene I missed it.
Lisa is doing the debriefing scene with Brandi and she is not sure how Brandi will get through it and she is everso worried about her. Um, she did it for a storyline for your spin-off because you asked her to Lisa. This ain’t our first trip to the reality show rodeo, ya know. We get how this works. In other news Brandi drinks rosé. I was unaware people still did that. Brandi is explaining to Lisa that Eddie uses the same lines on everyone. This is a convenient and indirect strike against Leann (not that there’s anything wrong than that). Brandi wants to know who Lisa likes best. Sigh. Oh Brandi.
More footage of Yolanda picking lemons and hanging out with her bees. Despite her very odd husband, Yolanda is really starting to grow on me. Like an organic mushroom. Sad story about Kim and Kyle’s broken relationship. Violins in the background. Yolanda says Kim needs ten days on Master Cleanse. I am not kidding.
Meanwhile at Kim’s house, she has a houseboy AND a life coach. She may be my new hero. I need Gary to help me cope, communicate, provide structure and breathe and the houseboy to clean up behind me. Kim is hurt that Kyle outed her as an alcoholic on national TV. *cough* MJ from Shahs of Sunset style*cough* Kim says if you love someone and they have an issue like that you talk to them privately. In all fairness, I want to think Kyle tried that. Want.to.think. Also, I think this is why Asa on Shah’s apologized in last night’s episode. Allegedly. Maybe. Oh, Gary is not the “life coach” clearly he is her sponsor (not that there is anything wrong with that). Continue reading

Most of the best posts of April were about the departure of Sheree Whitfield from RHOA. I explain why she got fired. I posted a lovely eulogy for her, I found an interview by her eldest daughter…basically there were a lot of Sheree posts in April. I also tried in vain to explain Nene’s salary. Perhaps the most unusual thing I posted about in April was Camille Grammar going in on the former girlfriend of her new flame, Dimitri Charalambopoulos. A voice recording surfaced in a legal investigation and it wasn’t the cute. sweet Camille we see on TV on the phone. Shocker! Anyway, click a link or two and see what you might have missed.

Just getting plastic surgery is not enough for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, they have to film it for the show. Also, on the show they make it look like Adrienne was home when Lisa’s old house caught on fire. But I remember tweets from that time that made it seem like Adrienne was mad at Paul for not evacuating the kids and she wasn’t home. Weird.

Camille Grammer’s attempts to keep her boyfriend, his past, and his brother’s past are failing. I reported Tuesday that Camille was on Good Morning America explaining why she left RHOBH. I also told you in that post that Camille has gone into the health supplement business with Dimitri and rumors of an engagement abound. It seems as though things are not as carefree as the couple appeared in Vegas. It seems that Dimitri Charalambopoulos has a girlfriend/baby mama in Dallas named Lisa Chynoweth. Lisa would like to move to Colorado with their son Marcus. For reasons that are unclear since Dimitri has essentially moved to Malibu, Dimitri is fighting this and Camille goes in on the girlfriend in a recorded phone conversation. Click the link for text version. In the videotaped deposition with Dimitri, Chynoweth’s lawyers play a tape of Camille making what they consider threats toward both Lisa and her son. She is heard in a very ugly voice saying: “If you go to the press, I have lawyers that are beyond what you can imagine and they will pull stuff on you and you will be so mortified about your life and your family and what you have done. You don’t want to do that to Marcus. I will desecrate you, believe me, and that I can do, so be careful what you say and what you do because my defamation attorneys are huge, they’re the best and the people out there in the press that know me, they’re the best and they will hunt down and research every nook and cranny of your life.”
Well that sure isn’t sweet little ole season two Camille now is it? Well Camille’s side of the story is that she was going through her custody problems with Kelsey at the time of the phone call. She claims (through some anon source to RadarOnline) that Lisa said she was receiving phone calls from the media wanting a statement about Camille. Camille became threatened and went off. That is why the comment begins with “if you go to the press.” That does make a lot of sense as she refers to her
Yesterday a judge ruled that the video above should be removed by Lisa. We will see how long it stays up; however, the toothpaste is out of the tube. And it seems more and more likely that Camille has gotten herself in very deeply with someone with a very messy past. And really, arguing over a man with the ex is not very classy.
UPDATED: September 25, 2013 TMZ reported the following today. Camille just won the lawsuit, and she won without a fight, because Lisa never filed an answer to the complaint … so the judge just issued a default judgment.Lisa has been ordered never to release the recording in question ever again, as well as NEVER to record Camille without her permission. Period.
Brandy Glanville tweeted today that she was getting her tan on at Infinity Sun as part of a promotion she is doing for the tanning salon. Here she is in one of the photos as she is getting sprayed. I’m assuming that she took the cute little wrap dress off for an all over look given her propensity for going nude! She did seem a bit pale going in. Time to take some of her earnings and head back to Hawaii with Camille!
