I’m bored by these fake hoes going after LVP again. She is so unbothered and they are obsessed with her! I hope she quits mid season as well. It’s about time they carry the show themselves. 

 

This. 

 

And they'd turn on each other real quick. Whether Kyle knows it or not, without LVP there, she'd be the next target. It's been obvious the last 2 seasons that Rinna & Erotika want to establish themselves as the top 2 faces of this franchise.

In regards to BH, team Lisa and Ken. I think the biggest move Lisa could do right now is quit midseason. Hunni, don't even show up at the reunion. That'd force them to scramble and find something else to discuss. I agree with the mass that LVP needs to leave this show and focus all her energy on PumpRules and creating other spinoffs for Bravo. 

 

When it comes to Michael Darby's charges being dropped, the damage is done. I've been adamant from DAY ONE that Michael is a strange bird. I hope Karen drags him and Ashley throughout the season even though I know she won't do it b/c she has class. 

 

It would be interesting to see Lisa leave midseason like Jeana Keough did on OC years ago. The rest of them would destroy each other and that's what we need to see. 

 

Hmm about the charges being dropped.

The only thing uniting these women is the fact that LVP is still the only one truly prospering from BH. 

 

I knew once Kyle's floppy as TV show got cancelled she'd go back to being bitter. 

 

Teddi, much like Dorit, fears another season of anti-Erika, as we all know Andy, Bravo, and the anti-LVP crowd worship the ground she walks on. 

 

And Rinna has been salivating at the throne since s6.

I guess the show must pay well but I wonder why LVP stays around. It sounds like hell and tedium every year.

I sort of wonder if there's a possibility that LVP is going to be a Friend of the Housewives this season as a means to transition out and that the other ladies are unaware and THAT is why she didn't take a group photo. She didn't want them to know that she's an FOH and is on her way out. 

 

What I really think is despicable is that LVP's brother died of an overdose in May and it seems none of the women are at all willing to give her a break. Her brother's death is also part of why I wonder if she's on her way out because she's looking at life and seeing it isn't worth it.

LVP is paid at least $500,000 for 4-5 months worth of filming that consists of 3 days a week of filming. It's a lot of money for what they actually have to do. But at some point, especially with VPR, it can't be worth enduring this crap.

I can see Ashley changing the narrative and asking WHO is out to get Michael since it appears someone tried to set him up. Because if it happened once, it will happened again. And his already alleged past isn't helping.

But that's just it. Other than a few scenes with Denise and the alleged Kyle/Ken fight...which I happen to believe happened since it's US Magazine claiming...has LVP filmed with anyone or any of the 'group' event yet to anyone's knowledge?

Jeana quitting at the start of season 5 was both a surprise and yet not a surprise.  You could tell that she wasn't down with the nasty/conflict tone the show was turning into so she exited stage left.  She was one of a kind in a weird way... and Shannon replaced her in terms of the relateable factor.. but not the low key/laid back style that Jeana eluded.  Plus, Jeana was on Johnny Carson's The Tonight Show.. what other housewife has had that honor?

 

In regards to LVP... like I said before, if RHOBH hopes to grow and not keep stagnating... LVP needs to go.. so that we can finally get a new storyline.  Brandi/Kim leaving after season 5 was kind of a game changer because the women turned against one another in season 6.  However, I wonder why LVP keeps getting targeted season after season.. is there perhaps some truth that she isn't all sweetness and light?  

 

And in regards to Rinna, I saw her reality show that she did years ago with her hubby/kids... and she was warm, fun and likable.  I recalled being excited she was joining RHOBH.. and the first half of the season, Rinna was still warm and likable... but than she got onto the Kim obsession wagon and never got off of it... with Kim gone, her focus has turned to LVP.  If she'd stayed how she was in the first half of season 5.. I think she could have become one of the main faces of the BH...imho.

 

I will be interested to see how Denise R will fare since she wasn't too big into conflict on her reality show.  Still.. she has three kids, her dad was a positive influence, and did she recently marry?  I can't recall.  I think Denise Richardson would have fit in well in the earlier version of the Housewife franchise.

I understand why Rinna won't let it go with LVP... I 100% believe that LVP "suggested" that Rinna defame Yolanda on camera and then when Rinna realized she was left holding the bag solo, she turned on her.  She saw things for exactly as they were--LVP and Yolanda stopping at nothing to ruin each other.  Kyle all but confirmed the stupid Munchausen crap but LVP STILL got away with lying about it.  Meanwhile Ken was spitting out profanities nonstop about Rinna and Eileen... you know who didn't do that to/about LVP?  Harry Hamlin or Vinny Van Patten. Because they're not pigs.  It's crazy to me how teflon Lisa & Ken are.

 

But I can't argue that Rinna is her own worst enemy.  That crap with Dorit was just beyond, then "forgetting" she said that about Kim... even in the beginning, when she claims she was helping Kim... she knows this medium well--Rinna knew what she was really doing was making a storyline out of Kim falling off the wagon.  She really suffered last season without Eileen... it was clear no one wanted to film with her lolol.  The only actually interesting thing that happened was off-camera with Kyle running into Harry with him wanting to keep Rinna and Kim separated.  Which, btw, I do think was out of line for Harry.  But it doesn't come close to the sh!t Ken says.

Rinna, Kyle, and LVP all played the Munchausen thing wrong. Instead of turning on each other so that nobody looked like they were insinuating the Muchausen allegation, they should have united and called Yolanda to the floor.

 

Her recovery from "chronic lyme" (which is not a real diagnosis) was downright miraculous once her divorce was tied up in a neat bow, in my humble opinion. If Rinna, Kyle, and LVP had just owned the fact that they all thought she was malingering her symptoms they would have been unstoppable.

It felt like Rinna had all the receipts to level LVP and Yolanda, but she got scared about alienating the audience, which had happened anyway.  Lol.  You could see that Eileen was disappointed she didn't commit to exposing the "truth."  It was all a mess.  And Yolanda was weirdly vindicated and the last scene of the season was post-shot to frame that year as her journey???  But I actually liked Yolanda--maybe she was fake and nutty, but I don't think she revels in being malicious like LVP.  Yolanda was just pathologically jealous of her and did not know how to get a hold of those emotions.

I view Yolanda and LVP differently than you do, but to each their own for sure. Had Rinna embraced exposing Yolanda the audience would have embraced her. Yolanda was not having a good season that year and the tide was turning against her.

Well, a little more tea got dropped per TT

 

RHOA

 

Sounds like Kenya is on the outs with Nene again or Nene is on the outs with her. People asked Nene if she missed Kenya and all she would say is she is not on the show anymore.

 

Given our talking here about how Kenya still appears to be genuine friends I admit that I wondered if that applied to Nene. So...hm.

 

RHoD

 

Sounds like Rich went in on Ashley Abbott on Twitter for alleging that he's cheating on LeeAnne. And told her to back off with her glass house before he started to spill tea on her.

 

So...wow, D'Andra. You are getting that season two curse I am afraid. :(

 

 

 

RHoBH

 

I'm not looking forward to another season of gangup on LVP season. I didn't even really watch much last season. However if she is leaving, I hope she chesspieces all them under the table.

I saw Nene’s comments and she said she’s expecting a baby shower invite. I take her comments to be more ego than anything. If you have the “star” of the franchise, she wants you to ask about her not someone who is no longer on the show. That’s very Nene.

Well...the last thing we need is Ego Nene...I prefer Fun Nene. ;) 

 

That said...completely understand what you mean.

Agreed. LVP, Kyle and Rinna absolutely should have owned it openly and without shame. After Yo got her leaky implants removed and a lump-sum divorce deal on the table with David, that 'chronic Lyme' cleared up mighty quickly. She was holding out for more money. As she had done with Mohammed (couldn't happen to a more deserving fellow, apparently he was cheating on her with every escort girl in LA). And that is probably why LVP didn't believe Yo one bit -- she'd seen it first-hand the first time around.

 

LVP, Rinna and Kyle second-guessed audience reaction and guessed wrongly. As it turned out, the audience already had their doubts and are VERY well-informed on chronic illnesses, some of them having suffered themselves. Yolanda's story did not ring true to them. But LVP, Rinna and Kyle are deathly afraid of audience backlash. LVP's sweet spot is being BH's beloved heroine. She desperately wants to be admired and loved by her employees as Lady Bountiful, by her friends, and by the viewers, and she is deeply hurt by rejection. It is her Achilles heel. For whatever reason to do with her childhood, this unquestioning love and admiration makes her feel safe. Anyway, she couldn't bear to lose even a few fans over this, so she backtracked and covered up and... the cover-up was so much worse.

 

They are all trying to control the narrative and grab that beloved-heroine status. As I've said before, it is killing the show. Rinna especially has made it her mission to target a weak link every season. You best believe that won't stop once LVP is gone. Kyle is definitely next in her sights, and so is Dorit.

 

I wish LVP would walk out mid-season with a dramatic hair toss and pay those bitches dust. I'd like to think that after the loss of her brother, she has come to a realisation that all that glitters is not gold, and taken stock of the things that truly matter in her life. She does not need these women's love/approval/dubious loyalty for her life to be happy. My worry is that after the lawsuit and the Todds' inability to sell Villa Blanca, LVP needs the Bravo cheque to cover damages and litigation.
