Denise Richards: I’m Coming for You, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!

Look out, all Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Someone who has dealt for years with Charlie Sheen is headed your way.

So she's ready for anything!

Denise

Indeed, following weeks of rumors and innuendo, Denise Richards confirmed on Thursday via a statement to People Magazine that she has joined the cast of this long-running Bravo franchise.

“I am so excited to join the cast, as I am a huge fan of the show," Richards said simply today, adding of the ninth season to come:

"I am looking forward to spending time with all the ladies… and hopefully meeting Boy George!!”

(Confused? Richards is referencing her close friendship with fellow star Dorit Kemsley, whose husband, Paul, is Boy George’s manager. For real!)

On future episodes of this wildly popular program, Richards will join Kemsley, Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Erika Girardi and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave for a bunch of scripted drama and craziness.

And this won't be her first time on reality television, either.

The actress actually starred on two seasons of It's Complicated, a series that chronicled her life as the mother of two and the ex-wife of someone such as Sheen.

It ran on E! from May 2008 through July 2009 -- and it wasn't received too warmly by critics.

Wrote Variety at the time as a review:

"She's traded on her sexuality to become one of those public figures who cavorts with other public figures, and we (or, at least, those of us inclined to watch and read about such fluff) are voyeurs."

The series also earned a D from the Boston Herald, who summed it up, after critic Mark A. Perigard watched the first episode, as follows:

"Denise Richards’ life is one steaming pile of pig poop...Literally

Still, Bravo jumped at the chance to hire Richards.

"I love Denise Richards, wouldn't it be so cool to see Denise Richards as a Housewife?" producer and talk show host Andy Cohen said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight last week.

At the time, he refused to confirm whether she'd actually be on the show, of course, simply teasing:

"The thing about it is, we don't announce casting until the show's about to come out. So, you're not going to hear anything from me for a while."

That much is true, we suppose: We still have not heard from Cohen on this casting.

But he and Richards' new co-stars will likely comment on her addition soon.

An Illinois resident, Richards is likely best known professionally for having made out with Neve Campbell in the movie Wild Things.

She also appeared on episodes of Jane the Virgin, Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce and something called Vanity.

On the big screen, she last had a role in the film The Toybox, which featured family members who were killed off by their haunted RV.

Are you psyched for Denise Richards to be a Real Housewife of Beverly Hills?

Denise Richards: Joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?!

Remember the days of Denise Richards: It's Complicated? The series debuted about a decade ago. it also came to an end almost a decade ago. That's life.

But it looks like Denise is poised to return to reality television -- but this time, as part of a successful franchise.

Denise is poised to join The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

A source tells People that Denise Richards is in talks to join the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for the series' 9th season.

"It’s not final yet," their insider tells them of the negotiations.

But the source says that "It’s very close."

That's great news for fans, and could be even better news for Bravo.

The insider says: "Everyone is really excited about the possibility of having her on board!"

You would think that Denise Freaking Richards joining the cast would take nothing more than her expressing an interest, but things aren't always so simple.

"Denise," a second insider reveals. "Has been wanting to join the show for a long time."

Well, dang. What's the delay?

"She’s a huge Housewives fan and watches all of the shows," the source continues.

If you imagine that just being a huge fan is enough to get you on the cast, though, you should think again.

But Denise has more than just fame to make her a total shoe-in for the role.

Denise Richards at the Grove

For starters, she's already part of that world.

"And she has close relationships with many of the women in real life," the insider explains. "Including Kyle Richards and Lisa Rinna."

Lisa Rinna just celebrated turning 55 with a nude selfie, reminding everyone why she's a delight. But why hasn't Denise joined the show before now?

"The timing was never right for her in the past," the source reveals.

Okay, so that explains it. Timing for Denise and for Bravo needs to line up just right. We can absolutely understand that.

Right now, however, it's become clear to the showrunners that Denise is exactly what the show requires for its ninth season.

"But," the insider says. "The producers needed to shake the dynamic of the show up."

Reality shows can stagnate, and the easiest way to change that is by shuffling the cast. Real Housewives is well known for this.

The source points out that Bravo knew that they needed to make a change "after a season without much conflict."

People mature and quash feuds, which is great for them. But it doesn't make for good television.

Denise could really spice things up.

But Denise isn't intended as any old change. She'll be an interesting addition on her own.

"She’s going to be a great fit," the insider states.

That's no surprise. She's no stranger to television.

The source reminds everyone: "She’s not afraid of the drama."

We should think not -- we're talking about a woman who was married to Charlie Sheen.

"And she lives a glamorous, Hollywood life," the insider says. "Which the show looks for."

We hope that this deal doesn't fall through.

Lisa Rinna Celebrates Turning 55 With Nude Selfie

Wednesday, July 11, was Lisa Rinna's birthday. The The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is now 55 years old.

She decided to celebrate by snapping a selfie so naked that it is no longer on Instagram. But you can still see it -- the internet is forever.

Fair warning: the image below is not safe for work. There are nipples in play.

Lisa Rinna Window Selfie Header

Lisa Rinna has been nude on Instagram before.

This time, instead of a topless mirror selfie, she took the full-bodied approach.

She snapped a photo of herself at a window.

You can see through the window, but you can also see the reflection of her dynamite body in the glass.

It's not just a silhouette, either. Her nipples are right there, staring you in the face.

And you don't have to take our word for it.

Lisa Rinna, Nude Window Selfie

As we mentioned, that image is not safe for work. Or for children.

It is also not safe for Instagram. She hasn't been banned, but that photo is gone from Instagram.

But not gone from our hearts. Or, of course, from the internet.

She had captioned the Instagram selfie "birthday suit," and she was not kidding.

It's not the only photo featuring her trim figure and a window that she's shared to Instagram in recent days.

Lisa Rinna at the Lake

Lisa also followed up by posting a caption reading:

"Happy F--king Birthday to ME!"

That's the spirit!

To show that she was very much in the birthday mood, she followed those words with six cake slice emojis.

Though we somehow doubt that Lisa ate quite that much cake on her birthday, she has every right to do so. She'll turn 55 but once.

Lisa Rinna in a Dress

Lisa Rinna is drop dead gorgeous.

Acknowledging that is like saying that the sun is bright. Just as the sun douses us with unwanted heat, light, and ultraviolet radiation, Lisa can also be problematic at times.

Less than a year ago, Lisa -- for unknown reasons -- decided to tweet "All Lives Matter."

We don't really understand why she decided to add her voice to the rallying cry of those who feel weirdly threatened by the assertion that Black Lives Matter..

Perhaps she was looking to stir up controversy and accusations of racism, and decided that her husband Harry Hamlin wearing a swastika was too subtle.

Lisa Rinna Bikini Body

Still, everyone is growing and learning as a human being.

Lisa Rinna might not look 55, but she's experiencing time just like the rest of us -- and learning from her experiences.

So perhaps she'll come around to issues that she didn't quite understand with time. Or perhaps not.

Either way, the fans and followers of this Real Housewife hope that she never, ever stops posting nudes. She worked hard for her incredible body, and she should feel free to show it off whenever she likes.

(Whether it is her birthday or any other special occassion)

Instagram, however, would probably prefer that she keep her nipples to herself when using their social media platform. They have rules.

Spoilsports.

The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 12 Recap: Every Mayflower Has Its Thorn

Ramona Singer was up to her old tricks on The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 12 and proved that she has absolutely no loyalty to any of the ladies. 

It all started when Luann de Lesseps learned that Ramona was trying to get a meeting with her ex-husband, Tom D'Agostino at his New Year's Eve party. It especially hurt Luann because the event was being held in the same venue she and Tom threw their wedding rehearsal dinner a year before. 

Ramona Singer Is Not Impressed

Oh yes, it all linked back to the failed marriage between both de Lesseps and D'Agostino. It was one of those moments on reality TV that viewers probably rolled their eyes at because, well, Tom was a snake. 

He was meeting other women, and Luann was so blinded by love that she was willing to throw some of her oldest friends out with the trash to mingle with the New York rats. 

“I heard through the grapevine that Ramona was calling Tom to try to invited to the party that was on the boat our rehearsal dinner was on,” de Lesseps said during the episode.

“How low was that? What is that all about?”

Luann de Lesseps is Looking Good

Luann went on to say that it was more hurtful because she was in rehab following her arrest, and her supposed friend was going around acting like she didn't exist. 

“Here I am in rehab … I mean, what’s wrong with her?” de Lesseps added. “It’s mind-blowing that she would even consider something like that and call herself my friend?”

Luann has long been the voice of reason among the housewives, but as far as Tom is concerned, her vision was clouded by love. When it comes to picking and choosing her friends, she is generally strict. 

“It’s very uncool…,” de Lesseps said. “She’s texting me at the same time, ‘I’m here to support you, I hope everything’s okay.’ … It’s shocking even for Ramona! … Is she really that dumb? … What a traitor.”

Luann de Lesseps Poses

In true Ramona fashion, she pleaded that she was innocent and even said there was no reason for her to apologize. Yes, really. 

“I do not want to hurt Luann, but I did nothing wrong in my opinion,” Singer shared with audiences.

“Tom never did anything to me, I saw him exactly for what he is and was, and I accept him.”

“What is Luann so upset about? She started dating Tom behind my back. She knew I was dating him and never shared that fact,” Singer continued. This is in reference to Singer dating Tom once upon a time. 

Ramona Singer in Black

In Ramona's defense, she could have thought Tom was fair game. 

The other housewives were Team Luann on this one, and they had a lot to say about it. 

“What kind of a—— woman would want to go to Tom’s New Year’s Eve party? That’s what you call a real slob kabob,” yelled Dorinda Medley upon hearing the news.

“That’s bad. This is worse than bad. … The New Year’s Eve thing is f—– up,” Bethenny Frankel said. “If I did that, it would be like I murdered somebody. … I’d kill her.”

“We’re friends, but still, I’m there for [Luann],” Sonja Morgan said. “Your loyalty is to Luann.”

“How would you feel if you were me?” de Lesseps ultimately asked. “‘Hey, what are you doing for New Year’s Eve? Last year you got married on that boat. On that day … ”

Luann de Lesseps on Broadway

The addition of the other women helped Sonja realize there was something sketchy about the whole thing. 

“You know what, it was a bad call. It was a bad call,” Singer later said after thinking about things. “And I shouldn’t have done it. Just because my girlfriend wanted me to do it, I shouldn’t have done it because of her.”

“Listen, I’m not perfect,” she continued on her apology tour. “And I never said I am. It’s all about recognizing when you make a mistake. I know it sounds silly, but if it were [your boyfriends], I never would have texted. Something about Tom … it was like a little blip. They were together six months, a year, and this girl was pressuring me. [Her arrest], that had nothing to do with Tom.”

“I was reflecting on that because I could be completely upset with Ramona, but I actually feel sorry for her,” de Lesseps later said to Dorinda. “It’s kind of pathetic what she did. Do you see remorse there? Because I didn’t see remorse.”

Yeah, this looks like the beginning of a new feud, and there are going to be some big issues going ahead.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 21 Recap: Mending Fences

Will the ladies ever be the same again?

That's what I kept asking myself while watching The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 21, which served as the final episode of the season. 

Kyle Richards has been emotional throughout much of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8, and I think it's fair to say it could be down to the animosity amongst her family. 

Kyle is currently working on a TV show with Paramount Network that is inspired by the life of her mother, Kathleen Richards. 

During Tuesday's emotional episode, Kyle opened up about the effect her decision to produce the series had on her relationship with her sister, Kathy Hilton. 

Simply put, the relationship was now non-existent. 

Host, Andy Cohen asked Kyle about the relationship, and she said the following in response:

"Not great. That's why I'm looking forward to her seeing American Woman, because I think she's going to look and say, 'I read the situation wrong,' and then we'll go from there".

Erika Girardi/Jayne

"I feel it's unfair to talk about them [her relatives] honestly," Kyle sobbed. "I would never throw any of my family under the bus, ever."

Elsewhere, Erika Girardi and Teddi Jo Mellencamp continued to be at odds with each other. 

"The way you've always talked to me, it's like you're talking down to me," whined Teddi who is big on people taking accountability for their actions. 

"You are not this innocent fawn in the woods. Raise up or get the f*** out, come on girl," said Erika who was not buying the innocent girl act. 

Lisa Vanderpump chimed in and said that Erika was acting too harshly towards her nemesis, noting that they should not have been bickering. 

"Your blog was scathing, saying that I have no character," snapped Erika in response to Teddi comparing her to Regina George from Mean Girls. 

Teddi Jo Mellencamp

"You are heard here, I hear you…but we had to have it out baby," said Erika by the end of the episode.

 "This felt like the right way," smiled Teddi as their friendship was put back on track. How long will it take for the fighting to kick back off again between them? 

We also got some more insight into what went down when Lisa cropped Dorit Kemsley's face off the pictures that were used in the Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine. 

"Did you cut off the [my] head because you were looking to punish me?" asked Dorit to a blindsided Lisa. 

"It is kind of harsh to cut off someone's head," said Lisa Rinna.

"I didn't personally edit the photographs," said Vanderpump.

"I really didn't care, because you weren't happy with them [the photos], I didn't care," the SUR boss continued. 

L to the VP

"How the f*** do you win with this group?" she said to Andy who was loving every minute of the feud. 

As for that feud between former BFFs Vanderpump and Richards, it sure sounds like it's still going strong. 

"My grandmother meant a lot to me too, do you know her name?" said Kyle after the whole Nanny K scenario was brought up. 

"Most of our conversations…90 percent of them, are about you because she has anxiety because she has hypochondria because of the family dynamic, she does," said Vanderpump after admitting she did not know anything Kyle's grandmother. 

"I'm always calming you down…she has her knickers in a permanent twist," Vanderpump continued.

Kyle Richards Waves to the Photogs

After all of the arguing, the ladies put the past behind them, but there's no telling when the action will kick off again.

Erika Girardi: Quitting The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?!

On the heels of last week's shade-filled reunion, many fans of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are concerned about cast shakeups.

Someone tweeted a rumor that Erika Girardi might be leaving the series -- of her own volition!

This could be devastating to her fans.

Erika Girardi for Bravo

This heartbreaking rumor was broadcast on Twitter.

"Hearing that @erikajayne has quit #RHOBH and that a statement will be published after this season airs."

Even the tweeter acknowledges that this dire prediction is not confirmed.

"Could just be a rumor."

But she thinks that it's the real deal.

Here is the tweet itself:

Erika Girardi rumor

The tweet continues, this time with less rumor and more opinion.

"However after this season plus Reunion Part 1, I would not be surprised if this [were] true."

Clearly, not everyone would be sorry to see Erika go.

"And I can't say I would care either, bye girl!"

Harsh.

Erika Girardi Image

It's understandable that people might believe that this is a sensible time for Erika to leave.

After all, Erika seemed to be a little "checked out" during recent The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills episodes. Including the reunion.

Normally not one to half-ass anything, particularly in defense of herself or of others, she's limited responses to lines like "I am so confused."

What's the most heated that Erika has been on the show lately? The confrontation over "fake amnesia?"

Additionally, look at Erika's career.

She's still popular, and her recent memoir made the New York Times Bestseller's list.

There's a wisdom in quitting while you're ahead.

What's more, Reality Blurb says that their source close to production says that Erika has been threatening to quit.

But ... threats aren't the same as follow-through.

Erika Girardi Meme - Gonna Give The Gays Everything They Want

At time same time ... Erika might make a mistake if she leaves.

For example, not every Real Housewife gets to become a meme that's used by people who don't even know that it's from a Real Housewives show.

The above gif has been widely used for years across social media platforms. Meme status is something to treasure.

Additionally, though Erika was famous before she ever became a Real Housewife, she might expect for her visibility to fall if she leaves the show.

Just as people might point to her recent book sales making this a great time to leave, it could also be a reminder that being a Real Housewife has its advantages.

If you want to sell something, being on a show makes that a lot easier.

Just saying.

Erika Girardi Wears Red Latex

The best evidence that Erika probably isn't leaving the franchise doesn't come from speculation about the timing or whatnot.

Recently, Erika was seen doing promo work with Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burruss.

It would be very strange to be taking promo photos with fellow Real Housewives (especially from a different series) if you're not, you know, staying with the show.

It sounds to us like Erika threatened to quit, which created rumors that she's leaving the show, but ultimately stuck with it.

But that's just our guess, based upon these reports. You never know.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 19 Recap: Dorit Kemsley vs. Teddi Jo Mellencamp!

Dorit Kemsley likes to be the center of attention, and that might be why she's always embroiled in arguments with her fellow housewives. 

On The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 19, she essentially revealed that she's moved on from the fights, but there are still two housewives she doesn't like: Teddi Mellencamp and Camille Grammer. 

She did that by naming one of her swimsuit designs after the other cast members. 

"I don't have to make excuses for it, it's my life," complained Dorit who did not give a damn about causing drama. 

"I'm going to name them after the women who really bring something to my life," she continued during the reunion special on Tuesday night. 

"That kind of sucks…I was left out on purpose, every time I called I was a bother to her, and I was so irritating," Teddi fired back.

"Teddi is one person to my face and another behind my back," snapped Dorit in response. 

We even got some insight into what changed Lisa Rinna's persona this season. If you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online, you will know that Rinna has not been getting involved in the fights this time around. 

Lisa Rinna at a Gala

But away from the show, Rinna had apparently been sharing her views on co-star Lisa Vanderpump's relationship with Cedric Martinez. 

Vanderpump claimed she had not seen the posts, but Rinna was not about to let everyone drag her for some comments. 

"Unless you saw it you should just shut up…are you kidding me? My Instagram stories that go away in 24 hours, who gives a f***ing s***?"

After that, we got to hear how the ladies felt about the arguments between Kyle Richards, Vanderpump, and Dorit. 

L to the VP

"My feelings have really been hurt in this situation," said Vanderpump of all the arguing.

"You called me out for every little teeny, weeny thing I've done," Richard said in response. 

"We know now that Dorit was a little economical with the truth," said Vanderpump of Dorit's knack for not telling the truth. 

"I cherish my relationship with Lisa. You [Kyle] think Lisa Vanderpump controls you," Dorit said, clearly attempting to stick the knife in. 

"I don't remember saying that," Kyle yelled angrily. Kyle felt like Dorit was trying to cause trouble between her and the other cast members. 

Kyle Richards Cries

She turned her attention to the drama at the beach house that put her on the outs with Erika Girardi. 

"You made a mountain out of a molehill," Kyle continued.

"I was so f***ing confused," said Erika of the situation. Erika has never allowed anyone to talk smack about her and has shade for days, so it's funny when people actually try to attack her. 

The first part of the reunion was relatively subdued, but usually, most of the drama is saved for the later installments. 

Erika Girardi/Jayne

Maybe we will get some more action when Camille Grammer takes to the stage!

Okay, what did you think of all the latest shade throwing? 

Hit the comments below!

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 18 Recap: The Runaway Runway

Kyle Richards is tired of being thrown under the bus by the other ladies, and she made that very clear on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 18

The ladies attended another one of Dorit Kemsley's lavish fashion events, and and the most drama was held for after the event. 

That came in the form of Kyle quizzing Lisa Vanderpump about the photoshoot Dorit was involved in for Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online, you will already be aware that Lisa did not want to use the pictures because they never came out that well. 

Dorit seemed mad, but there was nothing she could really say because the situation she was in. If she started bickering with Lisa, she would have probably been obliterated by a glance from Erika. 

Dorit knows how to pick her battles, and that's why she went guns blazing for Kyle. She felt like Kyle was jealous about not being asked to have pictures taken for the magazine. 

Dorit, you can't expect there not to be any repercussion from the dinner in Erika's hotel room," Kyle said, of the big fight they had in Berlin. "You were saying things that didn't even make sense to me!"

Kyle Richards Waves to the Photogs

For what it's worth, Dorit rarely makes sense, so we have to agree with Kyle on this one.  ICYMI: The two bickered about pantygate once again. 

"It surprised me because I had nothing to do with that, and it wasn't fair," Kyle reiterated. "In your attempt to get closer to Erika, you wanna throw me under the bus for no f-cking reason -- again."

This argument opened old wounds for Kyle, and she subsequently tried to get more details about what Dorit was saying that time Erika left Teddi's beach house. 

But Erika seemed over the whole situation and failed to defend her friend. That was enough for Kyle to realize these ladies were not as close to her as she once thought. 

Kyle Richards Heads To Her Beverly Hills Store

"[Lisa] Rinna's up Erika's ass, Erika's up Dorit's ass, Dorit's up Lisa Vanderpump's ass," Kyle  Mauricio as they stormed out of the event.

"Everyone's busy kissing ass and bullshitting, and no one's being honest. And you know what? It's at my expense, and I'm not gonna f-cking do it anymore."

"I'm feeling like everybody's full of shit," Kyle later revealed to the audience. "And I don't feel like sitting here at a party being fake with a bunch of bullshitters."

Dorit turned to her own husband with some words of her own about the situation. 

"Are you f***ing kidding me?" she complained. "It's just one night for crying out loud. I wouldn't do that to somebody on a night that's very important; I just wouldn't. I don't have it in me."

Elsewhere on the final episode of the season, Camille Grammer returned to let the ladies in on a shocking revelation: she's pregnant!

Camille Grammer is Angry

That last part was a joke, but her big shocker was equally as shocking: she's engaged to fiancé, David C. Meyer and wasted no time in flashing the beautiful rock around. 

"You're engaged"' Kyle yelled. "Oh my God... I'm gonna cry!"

"David is a good guy, and he makes me laugh. I'm looking forward to spending the rest of my life with somebody. Life is pretty darn good," Camille dished in a confessional. 

While everyone was happy about the engagement, Lisa Vanderpump could not contain herself and admitted that she was part of the reason for the big step for Camille. 

L to the VP

The SUR boss said the following: "Woohoo, Camille finally took my advice and kind of went for it. She's had a horrible, tumultuous ride dealing with divorce. And now here she is. She's really in a great place, and I couldn't be happier for her."

Okay, what did you think of all the developments?

Sound off below!

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills continues next Tuesday on Bravo. 

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 17 Recap: Better Latex Than Never

The Berlin trip came to a grinding halt on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 17, but did you really think it was going to end without a shred of drama?

If so, then you clearly don't know the Bravo shows follow a distinct formula: When the drama is drying up, take the cast members on vacation and throw as many obstacles in their way as possible. 

The result? The women will return home with a whole lot of unresolved feelings and some things to talk about at the reunion.

Erika Girardi Wears Red Latex

Now, we're not saying we will be remotely excited by the reunion because if it's anything like this tired old season, we're going to have to give the next season a hard pass. 

When the episode opened, the cast was on the final day in Berlin.

Lisa Rinna and Dorit (who's still trying to imply she's one of most significant forces in the clothing industry) embarked on a spa day in which they opened up once again about the argument that should never be spoken about. 

That's one of the fundamental issues with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8: the arguments are being rehashed to the point viewers think they're in Groundhog Day. It's ridiculous. 

While the two ladies rehashed away, Kyle and Teddi went to the zoo, but they could not go inside with Erika, who was fashionably late.

Erika Girardi for Bravo

It turned out, she was sick, but she did help them get closer to the animals, so that should be praised. 

The ladies went about their day it was becoming increasingly obvious there was going to be another bust-up between Teddi and Erika.

The daggers the pair were throwing each other were rather hilarious, and there's no telling what Erika would do to prove a point. 

If looks could kill, we think it's fair to say Erika would have found herself meeting her biggest match yet. While Teddi may have seemed passive when she first appeared on the show, she quickly adapted to the environment she put herself in by signing up for the show. 

The producers don't package thick skin and a guide about how to navigate the shark-infested waters in the Bravolebrity welcome pack. 

Teddi Jo Mellencamp

We later found ourselves on an evening boat ride with the women, but as usual, Erika was nowhere in sight, and she turned up late again. 

When she showed up, she was wearing a red latex top that was typical for this kooky singer who wants all eyes on her when she enters a room.

The ladies were happy to see Erika, but as the alcohol flowed, Erika got more and more annoyed with Teddi. 

"I have one issue," said Erika to Teddi in front of the women, adding: "Pretend. Amnesia."

The two women started a whole lot of back and forth, but Erika seemed stuck on the pedestal and did not want to be called a liar on TV. 

“I don’t care how I talked to you, you called me a liar,” Erika continued in the fiercest tone. 

Erika Girardi/Jayne

But something happened, and Teddi literally pooped her pants. We're kidding about that last part, but Dorit even stepped in to defend Teddi. 

Teddi admitted that something about Erika freaked her the eff out, and it was enough to get Erika to drop the whole thing. Somehow, we're not convinced. 

What do you think of the way Erika acted? Is she bullying Teddi?

Hit the comments. 

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills continues Tuesdays on Bravo. 

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 16 Recap: Holy Schnitzel

These ladies are never going to be able to get along for more than a few scenes. 

That much became clear on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 16 as the group continued their big trip to Berlin. 

When the episode got underway, we moved on from all of the drama with Nanny Kay. Lisa Vanderpump, surprisingly, let it all go. 

There was no way Lisa and Kyle would ever engage in a fight, but their relationship seems to be all over the place of late. 

Dorit, LVP, and Erika made their way to the mall as the episode got underway to indulge in some shopping. While that was going down, Teddi, Lisa Rinna, and Kyle went to get themselves some breakfast. 

Surprisingly, the division seemed to do the women some good. There were no bitchy comments, and they all seemed to be in a good place. 

Things took a wild turn when the ladies went to do some horse riding. Erika was the one who advocated for this, and it became clear she only did it to get Teddi on her side. 

Erika Girardi/Jayne

If you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online, you will know that the two women almost fought a few weeks before. 

Say what you want about Erika, but she has time for a total of zero BS. She speaks her mind, and that's the best part about her. 

Kyle got all dramatic when she admitted that she was allergic to horses. That's good to know ... especially after Kyle mounts a horse. 

Like, why would someone who knows they are putting their life in danger mounting a horse? In any case, even LVP recognized that her frenemy was telling the truth. 

But that was enough for Kyle and production rushed her back to the stable, gave her an allergy pill and that was that. She was out of it.

All seemed right in the world until the women met up for dinner and Dorit opened her mouth. Dorit claimed that she was mad at Kyle for what happened in New York. 

“I may be high on allergy medication, but it sounds like Dorit is really looking for sh– again,” she said with a look that would scare anyone. 

That's when LVP chimed in and went on Dorit's side. This irked Kyle because she felt like Lisa was always trying to take Dorit's side and never stood up for her. 

Teddi opened up with some thoughts of her own and essentially said that everyone would continue to bicker if they talk smack about each other. 

"Teddy stop," wailed LVP.

L to the VP

“If you’re not on her side, she tries to shut you up — it’s gotta stop,” Lisa Rinna said in a confessional about LVP. 

“So, it’s my fault you gave the panties and upset Erika?" Kyle ultimately said when snapped at Dorit. 

Yeah, there's still a whole lot of animosity in this circle of friends, and that's going to continue to cause problems. 

They went sightseeing and managed to keep things civil to close the episode, but how long will it be before more drama kicks off?

What did you think of all the drama?

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 15 Recap: Dames, Dogs and Danke

With The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 beginning to wind down, it became clear on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 15 that producers were looking for anything to salvage the season. 

Lisa Vanderpump had to cope with the loss of her dog Pikachu mere days after the death of Pink Dog, while Dorit was trying to act like a high-flyer, and it failed miserably, and Kyle was doing her best to get under Vanderpump's skin. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online, you will know fine well that Lisa Vanderpump loves animals and is all about their rights. 

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Title Card

That's why she and husband Ken Todd made their very own documentary about cruelty towards dogs, and well, the screening of it probably could not have come at a worse time. 

How do you present a screening about cruelty towards dogs when you're still grieving the loss of your beloved pooches? 

Lisa apparently had the best makeup artist in all of Beverly Hills because she managed to make it through the screening without her face being all streaky. 

Then there was Dorit who rocked up to a meeting about her swimwear line implying that she was full of creativity and that her staff need not worry about the impromptu fashion show she's putting on. 

Dorit has never been the sanest housewife, and this episode further proved that. In any case, it makes for good TV, but her staff looked like they wanted to shank her when she opened her mouth.

But Dorit's health was taking a hit as a result of her hectic schedule that mainly consists of pulling faces when she doesn't agree with someone, complaining about champagne flutes and just being a rude individual. 

When the ladies assembled to hit up Berlin for some fine dining and other crazy shenanigans, it emerged that Dorit was feeling a little under the weather. 

Enter Lisa Rinna, who was all too happy to give her a pill that would make her feel better. Instead, it made her worse, and Dorit got a stern talking down to from a doctor in the resort. 

The doctor quickly put two and two together and realized that Dorit had mixed two different pills and that she would feel much better when both drugs had left her system.

It was quite the twist, and we're surprised Dorit and PK did not try to claim Lisa Rinna drugged her, or something, because we all know just how bitter these cast members can get. 

In Berlin, Lisa wasted no time in commenting that Lisa Rinna has had fewer scenes this time around, and Rinna had the best response:

“I’m just not engaging in stupid f—ing bulls—,” she said tot he cameras with a smile. It turns out, Rinna is trying to put on a better portrayal of how women act for her daughters. 

It was about time!

The other big event found Lisa Vanderpump talking about Nanny Kay, someone who used to look after her a lot. But Kyle claimed she had never heard of the woman, and LVP looked like she was ready to scream at her.

When it was all cleared up, Kyle said that she had no idea who the person was because Lisa never spoke about her by name. 

Something tells us these two won't be sharing mimosas at sunrise ever again.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 14 Recap: Heaven Knows

Well, that was disappointing. 

If you thought The Real Housewives Season 8 Episode 14 was going to pick up with the aftermath of the big feud that found Erika lashing out at Teddi, you were sadly mistaken. 

The action picked up one week later, and well, the show is back to battling a severe lack of storylines, and that's becoming problematic. 

Teddi is still proving that she can take accountability for her actions. That's what you would accept of an accountability coach, right?

Well, maybe she's putting on a show for the cameras. We can't be sure, but she called her arch nemesis, Dorit Kemsley to apologize for opening her mouth about all the comments Dorit and PK uttered about Lisa Rinna. 

Despite what some may think, why is Teddi really apologizing? It may seem a little silly to do it months later, but Dorit and PK still made those comments. 

Rinna may be on better footing with them now, but they still said those things and Teddi wanted to let her friend know about them. 

Lisa Rinna at a Gala

“In the moment, I thought about myself, and I didn’t think about the repercussions,” Teddi said as though she was expecting a torrent of abuse in response. 

With this show, anything is possible. Dorit tried to crack a smile, but you could tell that chip on her shoulder was weighing her down. 

Dorit loves to keep a feud going, and that's why we know this one is still at the beginning of its run. Teddi quickly admitted to the audience that she was not expecting an apology from Erika. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online, you will already know that Erika has built up a reputation as the resident Ice Queen of Beverly Hills. 

It's hard to imagine Erika putting the past behind her because, well, she's Erika Girardi. 

Lisa Rinna at Fashion Week in NY

In any case, Erika was too busy trying to break the mold and prove that she's a force to be reckoned with. This was all thanks to the Girl Cult festival. 

And, no, it's not a group of women running around Beverly Hills dressed up and killing everyone in sight. It's a more motivational affair about female empowerment. 

Erika was gearing up to make a speech at the event, and it seemed a little bizarre when you consider what really happened between her and Teddi. 

Teddi could breathe a huge sigh of relief because Erika did not attend the lunch date Lisa Rinna set up to introduce everyone to her mother. 

Teddi Jo Mellencamp

But Teddi's ally, Lisa Vanderpump had some issues of her own. Her dear dog, Pink Dog, passed away and she could not console herself. 

Rinna's mother, Lois was a real hoot. She had a no-nonsense attitude and made it clear that she was just like her daughter. 

At 89-years-old, Lois was ready to chat about everything anything with the housewives, and she was definitely more interesting than her daughter. 

The big closing event found the group attending a séance at Kyle's house, and well, things went awry pretty quickly. 

WOW Indeed Kyle

Rebecca, the medium, was not as sensational as some of the other mediums we've witnessed in the franchise, and that was rather refreshing. 

The ladies went outside, and Erika invited them all to Berlin, and it looked like things between her and Teddi were on the up. 

“I think Erika and I are moving forward in an effort of convenience to our other friends,” says Teddi of the whole situation. 

Erika Girardi/Jayne

But what if the husbands said no to their wives leaving town again?

“I will call your husbands, and possibly give them all bl– jobs,” Erika said with a grin. 

Okay then.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 12 Recap: Gag Fit

You don't mess with Lisa Vanderpump, and Dorit Kemsley learned that the hard way on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 12

If you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online, you will know that the pair have been at odds for weeks now, and that's down to Dorit running her mouth at every turn. 

Dorit Kemsley, Teddi Mellencamp and Kyle Richards Have Drinks

When the episode got underway, Camille Grammer and Lisa Rinna were showing off their smoking bodies, and complaining about how they are not fans of the way they look. 

In Camille's defense, she's been through a lot the past few years. She did have Stage 2 cancer, but it seems she is in remission now, and we are so thankful she can stick around to throw zingers at the other housewives. 

While that was going down, Kyle and Erika went out for some lunch and debriefed with each other about Lisa V going to war with both Kyle and Dorit. 

Kyle seemed happy that she made things right with Lisa, but it sure sounded like she was still mad at Dorit. Dorit has been causing nothing but trouble during The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8. 

L to the VP

She's battled with just about every cast member, but Lisa V was determined to put the past behind her, and it was about time. 

Camille threw a big event for the Foundation for Women's cancer, and all the women were on board to support her, but Dorit had an ulterior motive at the event. 

“The only thing I care about is repairing my relationship with Lisa Vanderpump,” she said to the audience as though butter wouldn't melt. 

That's when things got awkward. Lisa seemed to want to just move past all of the drama, but when Dorit is practically hanging off her ankle like a puppy wanting attention, it gets tedious. 

The event went well, but Dorit persisted in her quest to get Lisa back on her side, and it resulted in Lisa leaving after being chased by Dorit. 

Lisa Vanderpump at People's Choice Awards

They chatted on the couch, and it looked like Dorit was holding her against her will. All Dorit wanted was assurance that the past was indeed behind them. 

That irked Lisa because of all the crap Dorit had caused. All it would have taken is an apology, but Dorit does not have the word "sorry" in her vocabulary for some reason. 

Lisa admitted that Dorit calling her needy “wasn’t exactly a f—ing compliment.” Lisa made her getaway, but Dorit was not done and continued to follow her. 

The final big event of the episode focused on Lisa's birthday lunch, and she was still pissed about the way Dorit had acted earlier. 

Teddi Jo Mellencamp Loves to Sweat

Teddi was first to arrive, and Lisa opened up to her about how much she was mad. She then said that she was going to serve Dorit champagne in a tumbler if she asked for a drink. 

In case you missed it: Dorit and Teddi only hate each other because Teddi served her wine in a champagne flute. Yes, that's how twisted Dorit can be. 

Surprisingly, Dorit was served her drink in an ugly green tumbler, and she was not impressed. 

Camille also got some revenge on Dorit by giving her a pink ball gag, presumably to shut her mouth for a few minutes. 

Camille Grammer is Angry

Dorit decided she was not going to the after party at Pump and departed with a look of thunder on her face. 

We have one word for you, Dorit: Karma!

“Well, yes Dorit, I’m going to have a dig at you. I’ll say it with humor, I’ll couple it with jest — but I’m sending the message that this relationship has taken on a slightly different meaning,” said Lisa in a confessional. 

The final scene found Lisa reshooting the photos for the jewelry line Dorit modeled for because Dorit did not like them. Yes, Lisa Vanderpump is back, and Dorit had better watch out.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Trailer: Bedlam in Berlin!

Brace yourselves, Berline:

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are headed your way.

Bravo has released an extended trailer for the second half of Season 8, which looks very much like it will NOT be short on drama.

Stunning, right?

In the following preview, we see these rich and spoiled cast members on horseback in Germany, for example, as each braces for the very end as a result of this adventure.

“I’m not ready to die with these women in Berlin,” Lisa Rinna says with a laugh, for example.

The 54-year old mother of two later models some very revealing lingerie, an apt outfit for an upcoming trip that takes the ladies to a sex club.

Why?

For Erika Girardi to perform a rendition of “XXPEN$IVE," of course.

And you ought to see the ensemble she breaks out for this number!

Aside from German beers and latex, however, we see glimpses of in-fighting among the regulars, most notably when Girardi calls out one of her castmates.

“I have one issue: pretend amnesia,” Girardi tells this women, while we also see Vanderpump remark to Girardi:

 “It’s taken me two f-cking years to get close to you.”

Elsewhere: Dorit Kemsley debuts her swimwear line on the runway as the women cheering her on... while Mellencamp storms out of an outing and gets into a cab crying.

Someone is labeled a "cry baby."

Someone says she is having "phone calls with heaven."

And someone talks at length about meeting her father for the first time -- at the age of 25.

Oh, and the women also meet up with a psychic, to whom Erika says at one point:

"I was once kidnapped as a boy who lived in the bottom of a shoe."

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Bravo Tuesdays at 9/8c.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 11 Recap: Thank You, Thuck You

Did Lisa Vanderpump, Dorit Kemsley, and Kyle Richards finally get some clarity on why they were arguing?

If they did, could they tweet as much to viewers because it's becoming increasingly difficult to make sense of why they all hated each other? 

Kyle Richards Is Not Impressed

On The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 11, the division amongst the ladies continued to cause problems. 

That's what divisions do, but it's difficult to care when we don't actually know what's going on to make all of these women so mad. 

Would it be out of the realm of possibility for the producers to be lacing the alcohol these ladies consume by the gallon?

In any case, Lisa was still mad because Dorit was dragging her to the other women for being needy, or something. 

But then there was Kyle who wanted to go along for the ride and make the argument last longer. The reason? Because she felt good old LVP held her to a higher standard than the others. 

L to the VP

Sweetie, we all hold our BEST friends to a higher standard than the lower ones on the totem pole. 

Despite things being awkward as hell, the ladies were all gearing up to attend a fashion show for some things at Kyle's New York store. 

Dorit decided it was time to extend the olive branch to Lisa Vanderpump, and she did so in predictable fashion. 

“Things come out of my mouth,” Dorit said. Yeah, somehow, this woman always tries to get out of owning up to anything, and it's pretty tiring. 

Lisa countered that Dorit should not have been running her mouth to the ladies about what she told her about her childhood. 

“I love you, mainly on the strength of loving your husband, and wanting to love you and make it right,” said the SUR boss who seemed like she genuinely wanted to move on.

Despite some back and forth, they managed to put their beef aside. 

However, Bethenny Frankel from The Real Housewives of New York was already on the warpath thanks to Kyle opening up about how Lisa treated her. 

Bethenny wasted no time in opening her mouth, but LVP elegantly brushed her off and thanked Kyle for helping her the night before. See! Was it THAT difficult to say thanks?

In any case, Bethenny was probably upset because she was promised a fight by Andy Cohen or something. It was a big bust, and the rest of the event went on without a hitch.

Back in Beverly Hills, Kyle showed up at Lisa's house for some fine dining. Lisa admitted that she did not want to lose her friendship with PK and that she wanted to just move on with her life. 

“Let me ask you a question,” Kyle says: “Do you feel like anything’s at stake with us?"

Lisa admitted that she held her to a different standard because they are better friends. 

“I made a mistake; there’s no buts, ifs, ands, or howevers. I am sorry that I neglected you; I didn’t realize you were that upset,” Lisa said to close of the episode.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 10 Recap: Kyle Richards Ignites a Feud

Once upon a time, Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump were the best of friends. 

Nowadays, their friendship is in tatters, and they are doing everything and anything to showcase that for the cameras. 

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Cast

When The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 10 got underway, Dorit Kemsley was busy trying to get back in good graces with Vanderpump. 

However, Dorit failed to come clean about trashing the SUR boss, and, well, the meeting went nowhere as a result. 

Enter Kyle, who was ready to reveal all to her former BFF. 

“What did she say, exactly?”, Vanderpump asks as she realizes she is in for a treat.

“Jealous and insecure, that you’re needy,” Richards responded.

Kyle Richards Waves to the Photogs

“She said I’m jealous; I’m needy, I’m insecure… what else?” Lisa asked, before adding, "That really hurts my feelings."

That was enough for Lisa to know that Kemsley was the one who had been stirring the pot. The two women vowed to confront Dorit for her actions. 

With the ladies attending a party in Dorit's honor for her appearing on some magazine cover, it was only a matter of time before the action kicked into high gear. 

It was all civil initially, with the ladies toasting to Dorit's success. You could tell Dorit was loving her ego being stroked. 

"I feel f—ed over," said Kyle who was not amused that Lisa did not stick up for herself.

L to the VP

Dorit subsequently admitted that she was out of the event, and she was heading home. 

"I don't want to be bothered with this s—," Dorit snapped at the two women before heading off. 

Then, disaster struck when LVP offered to leave with Dorit. Kyle looked like she wanted to hurl her drink at Lisa and have the ground swallow her up. 

"I mean, it was one thing not to have my back inside," Kyle explained in a confessional.

"But now Lisa is offering a ride to Dorit, who's been gossiping about her? Lisa completely holds me to a different standard. Anytime I have ever said anything remotely unflattering; she has punished me."

Lisa Vanderpump at People's Choice Awards

"It doesn't matter what's gone down," Vanderpump responded.

"I believe Dorit, and my relationship and friendship supersedes anything that has been said. If she is insistent on going home on her own in a taxi, then I will be going with her."

Dorit eventually agreed to get on the bus back to the hotel with everyone else, but Kyle was mad. 

"I don't want you to cry," Vanderpump admitted, but Kyle was not ready to back the eff down.

"Just leave me the f— alone, Lisa," she says. "Leave me the f— alone."

Kyle Richards Photograph

"I know for a fact that what Dorit has said upset Lisa and hurt her feelings," Richards said in a confessional. "I'm not even mad at Dorit anymore; I'm confused by [Vanderpump's] behavior."

The ladies failed to resolve their differences and opted instead to retreat to bed. 

Will they fight another day?
