The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 2 Recap: Diva Las Vegas

On The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 2, Teddi Jo Mellencamp learned the hard way that not all of her cast members were going to be welcoming her into the group with open arms. 

We get it, it’s difficult being joining a new clique of friends, but Teddi’s nerves are getting the best of her, and she’s not exactly showing herself in the best light thus far. 

When the ladies wanted to gamble, she did not seem impressed by it, and it certainly makes one wonder why she agreed to join the show if she was not prepared to take part in all the activities. 

Maybe she’s been living under a rock, or she just needed a quick buck and signed up without a second thought, but we’re not seeing the real Teddi, and it seems like it’s going to take time for that to shine on through. 

The sad thing is, viewers make decisions early on about new cast additions, and Teddi runs the risk falling into the sidelines. You know something’s wrong when Adrienne Maloof returned for two scenes and had a more prominent presence than Teddi. 

The ladies were still in Las Vegas, and it became apparent that Erika is always going to be a tough cookie to crumble. Her icy demeanor has landed her in hot water with the ladies in the past. 

For the most part, she changed things up and reacted well to Lisa Vanderpump telling her that friendship is a two-way street, but she was not that nice to Teddi in the closing moments of the episode. 

Teddi was trying to find out some information about Erika because she wanted to get to know her, but in true Erika fashion, she iced her out and treated her like crap. 

This did pave the way for Erika to drop a stunning revelation on the ladies: She met her father for the first time when she was 18 years old. 

“It was like meeting a stranger. I shook his hand,” she said, and the others quickly speculated that it could be the cause of her not letting people into her life. 

“I don’t have this relationship, but I have a lot of other fabulous relationships,” Erika said to the camera.

Elsewhere, Dorit and Lisa Rinna finally had it out over all the comments they made about one another. It was a very one-sided debate, and Rinna was in the hot seat. 

Dorit denied that PK made several comments about Rinna, and said that it was all Rinna’s doing. Thankfully, Bravo was on tap with flashbacks of PK saying all of the horrid stuff about the soap star. 

Rinna ultimately had to be the bigger person and take all the blame. 

“I don’t want to feel like I am in danger,” Dorit said at the start of the slow Ferris wheel ride. “Your words and your actions are so low that they can really affect people’s lives.”

Ultimately, the warring women put the past behind them and decided it was time to stop fighting. 

But then Kyle Richards had to ruin all of it by telling Lisa R about Harry telling her that Kim needed to be kicked out of the group for good. 

Lisa already knew about it, and the ladies shrugged it off. Could this be the season of the women playing nice with one another?

The show is at its best when they are fighting, so we hope not!

What did you think of the developments?

Sound off below. 


Kate Upton: Acting like a F-cking Diva Over Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover?

Kate Upton is as beautiful as it gets on the outside.

According to a bombshell new report, however, the voluptuous model is dark and conniving and kind of evil on the inside.

Allow us to explain in further, alleged detail…

On Monday, February 13, Sports Illustrated will release its annual Swimsuit Edition, likely prepared to deal with the backlash that accompanies this rollout on a yearly basis.

But while the publication is used to dealing with complaints from customers, The New York Post writes that SI was forced to deal with an unexpected internal problem while lining up sexy photos for the issue this time aroun.

And that problem centered around Upton, her large breasts and her even bigger ego.

Just like last year, the 2017 version of the Swimsuit edition is expected to feature three covers: on that stars Serena Williams, one that stars 63-year-old model Christie Brinkley and one that stars Upton.

(In 2016, the three covers depicted Ashley Graham, Hailey Clauson and Ronda Rousey in body paint and/or bikinis.)

Well… one that maybe stars Upton.

An insider tells Page Six that Upton stirred up a lot of “drama” throughout her bathing suit-based suit.

“Kate demanded that if she did the shoot, that she absolutely must get the cover,” the newspaper writes, adding of Upton:

“She also had a list of photographers and hair and makeup people she would only work with.”

Those latter demands are probably not unusual for a celebrity of Upton’s stature.

But Upton has already appeared on the Sports Illustrated cover in 2012 and 2013 and those close to this situation say he attitude and behavior have been anything but appropriate.

“She was being a big f -cking diva,” an insider claims. “She’s thinks she’s better than everyone because she’s an actress.”

Wait… she is?!?

The busty blonde did appear in The Other Woman three years ago, opposite Leslie Mann and Cameron Diaz.

But the comedy wasn’t exactly embraced by movie critics.

She has three films in post-production at the moment, including one directed by William H. Macy and another by James Franco.

In 2015, Upton – who is engaged to Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander – was the subject of a New York Post article discussing whether her “ego is ruining her career.”

One modeling industry veteran said that her “demands became ridiculous.”

We can’t wait to see how Upton responds to this uproar.

As we’ve seen in the past, Upton is unafraid to speak her mind.

The only real move that Upton ought to take here is to stage some kind of coup.

Screw Sports Illustrated, right?!?

Why not just pose for a bunch of naked photos on your own and release them on Instagram for all to see?

We see no other option for you to take, Kate. Do it. Do it. Do it RIGHT NOW.
