The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Trailer: Released!

The first trailer for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 is here, courtesy of Bravo, and man alive, it features plenty of drama.

Would you expect anything less?

Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Erika Girardi and Dorit Kemsley are all back again, with some new faces joining the fun:

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, the daughter of rock god John Mellencamp and his second wife Victoria Granucci, is joining as a new Housewife.

Meanwhile former cast member Camille Grammer, the former wife of Kelsey Grammer, is returning as well, as a "friend" of the housewives.

Backstabbing is not the primary focal point of this new teaser, though it does have its moments, such as Dorit calling Teddi a "psycho."

Erika, for her part, sure looks like she's coming at the new queen as well, threatening, "don't f-ck with me like that, you won't want that."

Ohhhhhhhhhh. Put on notice.

Lisa, Kyle and Dorit are in a feud, meanwhile, that Erika describes thusly: "This boils down to three bitches that are competitive over friendship."

Bravo's official synopsis promises that this season, "the ladies are busier than ever, juggling life at home and in the boardroom."

Hustle and heart, so to speak.

Kyle must decide whether to renovate or move out of the home where she’s raised her four kids, which truly must keep her up at night.

The choices we face. Brutal.

Dorit is trying to re-launch her swimwear line, which proves daunting given the time frame of just a couple of months that she's working with.

Erika Jayne’s rise to the top has fueled her professional drive, with more music and a memoir on the way from this firebrand.

Lisa Rinna, for her part, is channeling her inner Kris Jenner as Momager to her model daughters, who are looking to make it big.

That comes with its own challenges, though, as achieving too much fame too soon in one's life makes it hard to stay grounded.

Finally, Lisa Vanderpump is knee-deep in dogs. Vanderpump Dogs, her new business venture, seems to be doing well already.

With trips to Berlin, NYC, Las Vegas and Tokyo on tap, the new season (kicking off December 19) promises plenty of trips.

That's where all the fun happens.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 7 Recap: Another Fiery Feud Kicks Off

Danielle Staub’s return was always going to make sparks fly, but the drama from her has been rather subdued to date. 

That all changed on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 7 when she was put on the spot once again for Dolores allegedly warning her about Teresa Giudice only wanting money. 

When the episode got underway, Siggy Flicker was going on about her brand new idea to host overnight retreats to help empower women. If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online, you will know that Siggy has done anything but empower her co-stars. 

She’s flat-out publicly shamed some of them, belittled them and made them feel like their feelings are not being taken into consideration. We shudder to think what she would be saying about Margaret if Dolores did not manage to get her to give the fashion mogul another chance. 

It’s unclear whether Michael knows his wife does not empower women. Maybe that’s the reason why he wants her to do fewer things associated with extending her brand. At the first big speech of the retreat, it seemed like Siggy was calling Margaret out in the same way she called Melissa out two weeks ago. 

Margaret, and most viewers, prepared for the worst when Siggy brought up the whole “Soggy Flicker” thing. But Siggy opened up to a whole room full of people about the various names she was called in school. 

It was horrible to watch because, for the first time, it seemed like Siggy was being genuine with all of the women about her past. The ladies then made their way to a room that included various things for them to do. 

They could talk about plastic surgery, get some new pictures taken for their dating profiles, get make-up done, or even buy clothing with empowering statements written on them. 

Most of the ladies bonded, but Teresa turned to Danielle and told her about a meeting she had with Dolores. Teresa noted that she had known Dolores for over twenty years, and it would not be wise to cut her out. 

Danielle got on board with that, but she was not impressed when she heard that Dolores practically called her a drug abuser. Danielle managed to keep her composure, but the two ladies went at it over dinner. 

Dolores questioned Danielle’s motives for being friends with Teresa after all of the years of animosity. Danielle denied that she had any bad blood with Teresa, noting that she wanted to be friends with her. 

Somehow, we believe her, but she does have a sketchy track record when it comes to keeping people close to her. The other ladies seemed to collectively agree that Dolores went below the belt by saying she had a drug problem. 

Danielle is not one to let things go, and if the trailer at the close of the episode is anything to go by, she will get her revenge, and it will be worth the wait. 

The episode featured a lot of filler, and it’s becoming increasingly apparent that these women are just not able to bring the drama. They don’t make the fight scenes like they once did, and it’s sad. 

We would even go as far as to say it may be time to rest this iteration of the franchise. All of the stories have been done to death previously. The only two that can still bring some drama are Dolores and Danielle. 

What do you think about all of this? Sound off below!


The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 Episode 19 Recap: Who Got a Divorce?

The ladies continued to be at odds on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 Episode 19, and one of them had marital woes that were just too difficult not to confront. 

When the episode got underway, Kelly Dodd decided her marriage was now a sham and talked to her mother about what she could do to salvage it. 

Her main issue with Michael is that he can be the nicest man in the world one minute, and a jerk the next. She has never heard that it takes two to tango. 

Kelly’s mother seemed actually to have a brain and noted that no marriage is perfect. Maybe she realized her daughter was part of the reason why it was failing. 

Meghan decided it was time to get the ladies together to celebrate the launch of her candle collection, The King Collection. But Kelly’s husband refused to get in a car with David Beador. 

Kelly wanted him to play nice so that everyone could just move on, but the man was having none of it. In his eyes, David was a villain and had to be dealt with as such. 

When the ladies assemble, it emerges that Tamra had not said anything to Vicki since Iceland. As is always the case on this show, Tamra was blaming Vicki for the whole thing and wanted her to be the one to reach out. 

Tamra then opened up about Vicki avoiding Eddie and planting a story to the tabloids. All of this only served to make everyone realize that there was no way Vicki was going to change. 

Peggy then went on an apology tour and apologized to Meghan for what she said about her kid crying and not getting attention. After that, Lydia thought it would be a good idea for all of the women to make amends. 

Kelly and Peggy had an in-depth conversation, and Kelly thought it would be a good time to apologize for what she said about her dad calling Peggy’s dad. 

These two do make a good pairing, but they’re not really bringing enough drama to the table, and maybe it’s time to refresh the cast somewhat. 

Tamra made up with Diko, and it became clear this episode was all about closure, which makes me think something drastic is in store for the next season. 

Tamra tried to get Peggy and Shannon back in good graces, but Shannon sulked her way out of the situation. She’s over trying to play nice with people who are going to drag her down to the ground. 

Shannon did not want to be put in the middle of the argument in the first place, so she felt like she was brought into it for no apparent reason.

The attention quickly turned to Kelly, who was officially finished with Michael. So, she decided to have Vicki dole out some marriage counseling to her. 

It results in Michael departing the situation. Vicki wanted to know the truth about the extent of their marital woes. Kelly made it clear that the marriage was done with. 

And that’s a wrap on another season of crazy drama. 

What did you think of it? Was it a great ending?

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 2 Recap: Will Kenya Moore Divorce New Husband?!

Kenya Moore shocked her fellow housewives on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 1 with the news that she is, indeed, married. That meant that all the tabloid reports were true and she kept all of her pals in the lurch. 

On The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 2, it became apparent that the marriage was not exactly what she thought it would be. Did she rush into it?

That’s exactly what she thought, but did she turn to any of her friends with her concerns?

When the episode got underway, it was all about Porsha Williams and she had a big change of her own in her life. Her sister, Lauren, was moving in with her because she was going through some stuff. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, you will already know that the sisters are joined at the hip at the best of times, but Porsha was worried that this new situation was going to test their relationship like never before. 

Porsha recently became vegan and her sister wanted to reiterate to her that it would be a good idea for her to freeze her eggs after six months. Apparently, six months without animal products in your system works wonders for the whole process. 

Meanwhile, Cynthia opened up about being fifty-years-old and single. She wanted to return to the dating scene. She did so with some dude named Evan who sounded a little too good to be true. 

The man organized a surprise photo shoot for her at his studio. Cynthia thrives on being the center of attention, so this was music to her ears. Naturally, she felt like she had won the lottery. 

The big drawback for her was that Evan was just 29-years-old, but he did have roses spread across a table for her. Maybe finding someone from the younger generation will be good for her. 

Noelle chimed in later, claiming that it is not acceptable for her mother to be dating such a young man. Instead, she said that she (Noelle) would be better dating him from the perspective of society. 

Cynthia countered that she was not really interested in Evan, to begin with. Yeah, she’s totally lying. 

Sheree had some drama of her own to discuss. She met up with her life coach to run through the emotional abuse she encountered during her relationship with Bob. 

She wanted to open up to her kids because she felt she owed it to them to know what really happened during the marriage. She didn’t want them growing up thinking she fell out of love with him all of a sudden. 

Sheree met up with her gal pals so she could speak about what happened in depth. 

“I don’t know how to start the conversation,” Sheree said. Her friends then took on the roles of her kids to try and help her understand how they would react. 

Then, Kenya opened up about her new husband being annoyed about the attention their relationship has received. What did he expect? He’s married to a real housewife!

“My husband is just feeling very overwhelmed because he’s a private person,” Kenya admitted.

In a surprising turn of events, she wound up bawling her eyes out to a producer because she felt like her marriage was already on the rocks. 

“I don’t want to get divorced,” she sobbed.

The final big get together of the hour focuses on Shamea’s bridal shower and the outspoken star took her anger out at Porsha when she heard she was planning on skipping the nuptials. 

“You’re telling me you’re not coming to my wedding in Kenya, but I’m still saving a place for you,” Shamea yelled. “You are supposed to be there. You’re supposed to be in the wedding.”

Porsha claimed a medical condition meant she could not go to the event, but everyone knew it was because she did not want to spend time with Kandi. 

“It just feels like I’m being fronted out in front of the Kandi-coated clique,” Porsha complained to the camera. “It just feels like a slap in the face.”

“You’re not a horrible friend, but you’ve not been the best friend lately,” Shamea told Porsha after the event. 

“When people act a certain way in front of other people and you’ve shown them your heart, you have to listen and take heed to that,” Porsha explained. “I just want to love and support her from afar.” 

Yes, Porsha is going to be on the outs with all of her fellow cast members now. Sigh. 

What did you think of all the action?

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 6 Recap: Growing Up Jersey

Bravo’s successful Real Housewives franchise has always aimed to bring high drama to viewers, but the drama is all based on whether the cast members want to bring it. 

Unfortunately, the current housewives on The Real Housewives of New Jersey are not working. On The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 Episode 6, Teresa thought she was getting a break from the drama. 

However, her vacation was ruined by her daughters continuing to whine at her every single time she spoke to them.

It was painful to watch, but it certainly made me think those kids are sick of having cameras around them. They have been on the show for the entire series, and the recent bad press about their parents has to have had some sort of effect on them. 

The producers are trying to implement this whole storyline about Teresa letting the children get away with everything, but it seems more like that’s just been thrown in to explain their very blatant hatred of the cameras. 

It must be difficult for Teresa because she was gone from their lives for a considerable amount of time, but the kids either need to be left out of the show or be told they need to participate if they are in front of the camera. 

Teresa’s storyline this week consisted of her trying to get through to her children while trying to have a little fun herself and you could tell she was miserable. 

What didn’t help was everyone at the resort in Puerto Rico staring into the camera. Maybe Teresa’s storyline has just run its course, and it’s time to follow some new people. 

Back in New Jersey, Siggy went to get pellets to get her hormone levels back on track because she admitted she had something wrong with her. 

Hey, it’s the first step to recovery, so everyone should be giving her the thumbs up. Her mood has been all over the place, and it’s a little bit unethical to have her in front of the reality tv cameras in that manner. 

Margaret decided it was time to nip all the feuding in the bud and called Dolores to meet her for lunch. It started off very awkward, and it was clear Dolores wanted to stick up for Siggy. 

That’s what friends do, and Dolores is coming across as the most loyal woman on this show nowadays. Margaret is a real hoot. She has eyelashes on her mini cooper, so she must be a great person. 

For some reason, Margaret opened up about raising her ex-husband’s children for several years before they fell out with her for leaving their father. 

It seemed forced, but Dolores reacted to the waterworks. The two women found some common ground, and it helped Dolores understand what Margaret was about. 

Dolores took the news to Siggy during a double date with Frank and Michael. Initially, Siggy was against being friends with Margaret, but Dolores continued to push the fact that she thought the woman was misunderstood. 

Siggy finally decided to give Margaret another chance, but it’s difficult to expect the two women to do anything other than fight until the bitter end. 

This was hands down the worst episode of the series. There were no big talking points. It was all filler to show off Teresa on her all expenses paid family vacation to Puerto Rico. 

Danielle was not even part of the episode. Her voice was in it thanks to a phone call with Teresa, but isn’t this woman supposed to be, like, causing all the drama to keep us tuning in?

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 Episode 18 Recap: The Real Vikings Of Orange County

Peggy Sulahan loves to be the center of attention. That became crystal clear on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 Episode 18 when she flat-out refused to go to the final dinner in Iceland. 

She felt like the women were laughing at her, so she went to see Lydia to dish all of the dirt. She told Lydia that the ladies were making fun of her. 

When Lydia tried to say she was too paranoid, Peggy then said that Meghan was letting her kid cry for ten minutes unattended. Lydia was not impressed, but she knew Peggy was ready to flip the hell out. 

She stressed to Peggy that filming the women is not good because they will see that as a personal attack. Peggy seemed deluded and claimed that Lydia was wrong. 

Peggy then decided she was not going to the Viking dinner and that she would be staying in her hotel room. Lydia was conflicted because she did not want Peggy to be on her own. 

Shannon and Vicki started bickering at dinner. Shannon hated the prospect of Tamra making back up with Vicki, but she knew it was probably happening. 

Tamra opened up about Brooks being the one to ruin their friendship, and she wanted Vicki to confirm that was the case. Vicki still wanted Tamra to apologize to her. 

Tamra managed to get Vicki to apologize to Shannon for everything she said about her husband. In a surprising turn of events, Vicki decided it was water under the bridge and apologized. 

Shannon seemed happy with the apology, but was there hope for them to return to their former ways? Lydia and Peggy then showed up, and Kelly took it as an opportunity to apologize to Peggy for the way she acted. 

Peggy then showed off the videotape claiming that all of them were laughing at her. This then turned into the biggest bust-up of the season because of what she said about Meghan. 

Vicki, surprisingly, disappeared from the fight because she did not want to be anywhere near the drama. Vicki has turned a corner this season, and it was about time. 

Back in the states, Peggy continued to be mad at Vicki because she felt like she should have joined her side and took down the other women during the squabble. 

Maybe Vicki should have found a way to defend Peggy, but it would have been ill-timing to start another war when you consider the fact that Vicki only just got back in good graces with the other women. 

Either way, Peggy, and Vicki are going to come to blows sooner rather than later, and it’s going to be a whole lot of fun.
