It seems that Alyce is not exactly living in a bubble when it comes to all of the attacks on her personally and professionally on social media. Edited: The author of this article, Michael Kiefer, originally published this piece in The Republic which was picked up by USA Today. I am changing the link to go to the original source. Tirades against Alyce have extended to phone calls to her office, and the offices of those who have her booked for speaking engagements. I’ve excerpted a couple of the more interesting points below, but the entire article is definitely worth a read and pause for thought. Continue reading »
What secrets could possibly be left for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to reveal? Do we even want to know?
1. Brandy says that her Oscars dress fit when she tried it on but she didn’t try it on the night before. When she got there it took four people to get her in it.
2. Brandi called child stars “a particular breed of hideous” in her book. Andy points out that Kim and Kyle were child stars. I laughed out loud. Brandi says she was talking about Leann but that some child stars have a certain brattiness as a result of getting what they want from an early age.
3. In Paris, Brandi showed the two men from Louis Vuitton her bra. I suppose technically it is a bra. It’s black and the cup is lattice work with more boob than lattice. We also learn that Brandi had very large, very dark areolas. I did not need to know that.
4. Brandi made out in the bathroom with the hot guy at the white party. He is still “in her life.” But they are not dating. Continue reading »
Kim has a belated blog post about the RHOBH reunion. It’s um… well. I am not even going to try to comment on it. I will leave that to you guys. I am including the two most interesting parts. First, she tries to defend the shit stained pillow. Speaking of the pillow, the original Kim’s pillow twitter got removed! And then, she has a lot to say to Yolanda. Yolanda, who actually made much more of an effort to befriend her in Paris than anyone else, seems to be the target of her wrath and the only one she is not still friendly with. Take a read and tell me what you think…
With regards to Brandi. . .Brandi baffles me. I really don’t know why she jumped in on my conversation with Yolanda. Yolanda and I were having a discussion that had absolutely nothing to do with her! The next thing I know she’s talking about my pillow — which was really quite mean! When I asked Brandy why, she said she was protecting her friend! Continue reading »
Tonight Andy has 99 problems and they are all bitches, it’s called the Bravo upfronts! It seems like just yesterday that Sheree Whitfield got fired just before the Bravo Upfronts. But in reality that was a full year ago. Last year at this time, the upfronts party was televised on WWHL. That was a straight up disaster! But live party or no, the upfronts are usually very informative. We can tell who is coming back for another season by who shows up. Here is the tea…
UPDATE: Kim Richards and Heather Dubrow were both reportedly absent from upfronts. No idea if they had a note. Did Heather have a prior commitment or did she quit mid-season a la Kim Zolciak? (Update again, Heather says she has spring break with the kids already planned. Didn’t Kim Z already use that excuse once?) Has Kim Richards finally had enough? Or is this yet another accommodation?

We start the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Part 2 with the ending of the accusations from part one that Yolanda was trash talking Lisa. Lisa says she trusts Yolanda and that her trust with Kyle has been broken and will need to be repaired. This does not sit well with Kyle. The topic quickly comes to an end.
We move on to the Adrienne and Paul drama. Much footage has shown regarding the way Adrienne treated Paul on the show. It seems like a very long montage. Andy asks Kyle what she thought about them since they (Kyle and Adrienne) spent time together. Kyle says she just thought they were cute together with the bickering. Lisa interrupts and says she knew from season one that Paul had moved out of the house a couple of times because Adrienne told her in confidence (which I guess she is now violating) about the problems they were having. Kyle seem irritated that Lisa knew more about Adrienne than she did or perhaps that she was blabbing. Andy quotes Adrienne saying that she thinks Brandi’s new-found friendship with Paul was thought out and vindictive. Brandi says she is not friends with Paul they are simply cordial. Andy says in the same interview Adrienne plainly states that Brandi destroyed her family. Brandi says “I think we all know that’s not the case now.” Andy asks Brandi why she thought their marriage was a business relationship and she says because she never saw them being romantic. She said the one time she saw them kiss was when they were in Hawaii and it was so forced she felt badly for them. Continue reading »
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 »
YAY! It’s time for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I believe this is the finale. Which sucks because RHOBH is my favorite these days. Lisa is getting ready for her vow renewal. Lisa and Brandi are going to get massages and dish on Adrienne. Adrienne is having another one of her sponsored parties that she gets paid for. Lisa was invited and Brandi wasn’t. They’ve decided to hang out in Lisa’s beautiful yard for the day. The massage guy does feet. I hate the ones that skip your feet. Whenever I am in NYC the most important thing to do is to go to Chinatown and get foot massages at every single place that has the little old Chines ladies that do them. I could stay there all day, with meal breaks in Little Italy. I have slothlike qualities.
Adrienne much like most of the housewives that get brought in to add their name to an existing product is acting like she is launching her own line of vodka. It’s called Zing. I wish the Zingbot (from Big Brother) would show up and zing Adrienne mercilessly throughout the entire event. TobaccoRhoda now has me noticing Chef Bernie’s nose twitch. I should block her for that. Adrienne goes after Paul as soon as he asks Bernie anything. Adrienne is dragging out a dozen dinner plates for the appetizers. Really? Even Paul knows better than that. Continue reading »
In this week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Blogs we find out that Yolanda is not really feeling the Richards sisters. Of all the housewives blogs, Yolanda has been spectacular about being very blunt with her points of view. It seems clear from reading the blogs that in the absence of Adrienne, Kyle will be on the hot seat at the RHOBH reunion show. Despite Taylor’s support of Kim, it seems as though both Lisa and Yolanda have opted to completely removing themselves from the situation since their attempts to be supportive were not well-received. Yolanda seems particularly miffed by Kim’s treatment of her once they were back in LA. Continue reading »
On this week’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, we get our final glimpse of Paris as the girls take a cruise on the Seine. I can’t get over how cold and windy it was in Paris in July! At least they seemed to have packed lots of jackets and long sleeves. Yolanda gives Brandi some shoes that even I think are awesome, and so her! Oddly, most of the Bravo PR pics are from the cruise even though it was barely shown!
Back in Beverly Hills there is an odd scene where Marisa says her mother-in-law wants Marisa to co-list the family house with Maurico. I’ve heard that this was just storyline to get Maurico screen time and that ultimately Marisa just did the listing herself. The house is stunning. I am so jealous of the library. That is what a library in a $25 million dollar house should look like.
Lisa Vanderpump would be perfect if it were not for two things. First, it’s gross and annoying that she and Ken bring the dog to the dinner table. And worse, she seems obsessed with Kevin Lee, who I could do without seeing on my TV screen at all. Her house is so amazing though that those things barely matter. She has a huge infinity pool and a pond with swans in the backyard, and there doesn’t seem to be any other homes nearby. Continue reading »
