I thought I liked Megan Kelly. Her nighttime show, was pretty decent. I was the only one who liked it and it only lasted a few episodes. Then she got a day time slot in the fourth hour of the today show. So I set my DVR to tape it. I was dreadful. I kept watching hoping it would get better. It did not. It was full of stories about sexual abuse and people who almost died but instead were “just” really disfigured. It was Christmas time and I wasn’t having it. So I deleted it from my DVR.
So of course, now she is interviewing the RHOBH. She starts by saying that she thinks LVP is the richest one on the show. I laugh and Erika and Kyle just sit there, bemused. LVP says if she was that rich, she would not be working everyday and would just say at home and eat bon bons all day. I’m surprised that she admitted it though. She asks he why she does the show. Again, she tells the truth, she advertises her restaurants, and it helps her with he dog charities. She mentions that she was able to open the dog rescue, Vanderpump Dogs. Am I the only one that sees that more as a store for high-end dog clothes? I’m amazed also that the dogs are all little purse dogs and pure breed looking dogs. She asks if LVP is just wandering around dripping in diamonds. She says hers are all in the bank and mentions that Kyle was just robbed. Kyle says she no longer has any diamonds. Megan doesn’t even pick up on that and misses getting the first interview about what was taken and how Kyle is doing.
Nevertheless, Megan moves on to Kyle with her rigid script. She asks Kyle about the divorce curse on the housewives. Again, she has three women that have been married or decades on her show. This is what she asks? Kyle says she thinks some women come on the show when they are unhappy in their marriage and see the check as their way out. She says if you have a strong marriage, then nothing can take it down. Megan asks what is harder, being part of the Hilton family or being on RHOBH. Kyle answers that the show has been extremely challenging at times. I think being Hilton adjacent might be right up there in the challenging department as well.
On we go to Erika. Megan is obsessed with her and bursts out singing, Expen$ive. Erika says that all of the rules about how women should dress and act at a certain age have been broken. Especially in the current climate, women are making their own rules. Then Megan wants to talk about pantygate. WHHHHY? Erika says she stayed true to her word with Dorit and made an attempt to get along with her and it seems they are at the beginning stages of friendship. Megan brings up Erika’s son being a police officer. This seemed to please Erika. She says not everyone wants to be on TV, he prefers to keep his anonymity and she respects that.
Megan asks how long it takes them to get ready. LVP says she got ready in the hotel bathroom and did her own hair and makeup. LVP is once again dressed very matronly. Kyle is wearing fingerless gloves for some reason, and Erika is in all black with a short skirt and thigh high boots. When Megan says that she figured they all had glam squads, Erika doesn’t offer up the fact that she indeed does.
Megan ask who chooses the fights. LVP says, Kyle does. Did LVP take some truth serum before this interview? Kyle shoots back with, “See what she does?” Erika says to LVP, “What are you talking about? You’re the one that is always back there pushing the buttons.” They all talk over each other. I believe Erika said that LVP said backstage that she would never sit next to her. I did notice that when they walked out, LVP was hightailing it to first chair, Kyle sort of meandered behind her, and Erika did a slow strut in the rear which gave her a lot more time standing up and greeting the very excited crowd. Kyle says this is what it is like at the reunion. They all insist that the fights are very real. Kyle says they are laughing now but backstage there will be a problem. LVP says the three of them are all good.
The audience questions were not any better. So overall we didn’t miss much.
