I keep meaning to get this little bit of RHOBH filming tea up, and despite being utterly exhausted from a simple trip to the grocery store I’m going to do it now because my Below Deck recap will be a bit later than usual. I’m going to be watching the Vice Presidential debates tonight. I’m taping it but I will probably watch the beginning and then decide when to recap Below Deck. I’m literally too tired to type at the moment.
So I did have a chat recently with a RHOBH source who told me that Kim Richards has been filming with RHOBH. I sort of knew that already but it is starting to look like she may have done enough filming to have an FOH contract this season. Eden Sassoon and Camille Grammer both also appear to be in contention for FOH slots this year. In other Kim news, Brooke had her baby and Kim is over the moon about being a first time grandma. The kid’s name is Hucksley. He’ll have free hamburgers for life at FatBurger.
What I wanted to know about was my girl Lisa Rinna. I’ve been worried about Rinna and Eileen all season. I was hoping to hear something that would cheer me up. That’s not really what I got. While both of them have been filming all season, my source had no idea what Eileen’s storyline would be. So she is there, but doesn’t seem to be a major focus.

Lisa Rinna was honored for her charity work with Angel Food Project, a charity that delivers meals to the homebound, and well, most of the housewives were there. Eden Sassoon, Camille Grammer, Kyle Richards, and Dorit Kemsley were there to support her.
Am I the only one that thinks Camille is either back or at least an FOH? She sure does seem to be around a lot.
But I am more interested in who was NOT there.
It occurred to me yesterday as I spent five and a half hours getting a haircut and some highlights (I look fabulous but Jesus Christ on a cracker, how do these housewives abide sitting for hours with a chair while people fuck with their hair and makeup?) it occurred to me that a lot of commenters here have either not watched RHOBH from the beginning, or see every season in isolation from the previous ones. Others just pick their pony ( or mini-horse or swan) whenever they began watching and defend that person to the death. I do not understand this viewing method as it is just not how life works in general with a group of women, and it certainly isn’t things evolve on reality shows. In any group of women, in a sorority, in the junior league, in an office setting, friendships change and develop and are influenced by the introduction of new members and the departure of old ones. On reality TV people come in one way on their first season and can be a completely different person on their second season. Kenya Moore came in batshit crazy and then toned it down for season two. Thus I hated her season one and have enjoyed her more and Moore as the season’s progress. Camille Grammar season one was not the same Camille Grammar we had in season two. Those are extreme examples, but in general you never see the season one personality of anyone by the second season. The longer people are on, the more they understand the game.

Can someone explain to Andy that he needs to stop trying to sing on live TV? It’s not cute. And I already get the feeling we are going to spend all our time recreating the dinner party from hell, was that in season one? Andy points out that Camille had an estate sale last month and sold the dining room set from the dinner party from hell. (Are you noticing a trend?) Andy and Kyle both claim they wanted to purchase it. I’m guessing Andy’s apartment has to be finished by now (he bought the apartment next to his and blew out some walls). I don’t understand why there hasn’t been an article on it yet. Someone needs to get on that, I want to see if it is still decorated in Adolescent Couture. Camille and Kelsey finally sold off all of their properties. Camille then bought her own retreat in Hawaii.
Camille and Kyle are practically BFFs now. #AnythingIsPossible Today is Kyle and Mauricio’s twentieth anniversary so we get a sweet montage. Mauricio sent a gift for Andy to give Kyle since she would be gone for their anniversary. Kyle says they celebrated early this year. DEAR GOD! He sent GINORMOUS FLAWLESS DIAMOND EARRINGS! Camille and Kyle both gasped. Kyle said these are the earrings that Bella wore at the Lyme Gala when Kyle filmed for RHOBH and she loved them so much. I bet she did. And now they are hers and she is jamming them straight into her ears. Obviously. They are stunning. Continue reading
Okay what fresh hell is this Bravo? Are we really going to have a show about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season One? It appears we are. I’m in. But this had better be good.
Well, we begin straight off with Kim’s alcoholism. On the last day of filming, they were at a huge birthday party for Taylor and Kim was wasted. Apparently, someone from production let Kyle know. Because, it’s apparently Kyle’s job to keep him reasonably sober. Kim stormed off the set drunk and went out to the limo to drink. Kyle went after her and that is when the infamous limo scene went down. Kyle says she just lost it.
Andy didn’t want to do Beverly Hills because they were already doing Orange County. Andy thought they would be too much alike. It all started with Kyle. Kim’s audition tape is all about how Kyle doesn’t think she is good enough. Kim looks 20 years younger. So sad.
Lisa has a signed contract for Giggy. Apparently, this is a real deal. And such a clever way for her to be paid more than the other ladies. Or avoid taxes perhaps. I’m just saying. Lisa also wanted to go by “Pinky” on the show instead of Lisa. The producers told her that Pinky Vanderpump sounded like a bad porn star name and didn’t allow it.
Camille said that she didn’t think Kelsey would want her on the show. Kelsey called production and made sure that RHOBH hired Camille to keep her out of his affair. Continue reading

This is why elementary school teachers learn to line their kids up by height so school picture day will not look like this. How much did Andy pay for that ill fitting suit?
It’s kind of ironic that some of my favorite people are Brandiloons. It’s even more ironic that my oldest and dearest Brandiloon has a) Given up alcohol for Lent …and stuck with it unlike me and (2) Is claiming she is not going to watch the reunion. I would suggest that she, and all of my sweet, deluded Brandiloon friends avoid reading this recap as well. The Brandiloons seem to all have a deep Anglophile streak so perhaps something interesting is on BBC this evening.
Brandi’s face. It’s just. I can’t believe people pay to have that done. What a dorky opening. Then he starts right away with other peoples questions (He’ down with OPQ). Kim is in Sharknado 3 (sounds like Kathy is calling in favors). Someone wants to know how the most Eileen has ever won on a sports bet. She says she has lost several thousand and won several thousand it all evens out. Good answer for the IRS. BTW When I had a big win in Tunica they bring out the chips in dramatic fashion with guards and then you sign away your taxes and pay them right there. Brandi describes Kenya as very, very, smart, a little bit crazy and evil. Which is of course why Kenya is my spirit animal. Another fun TT fact: Kenya tweeted me about buying furniture in Atlanta last weekend. I’m sure she has no idea that her haters think she pays me to say nice things about her. But that fanned the flames as I knew it would. OTOH, DID I MENTION KENYA MOORE TWEETED ME! #Dead Continue reading
