Real Housewives Beverly Hills


So, last night I managed to watch the first two episodes of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. First things first, Paris Hilton's aunts look exactly like her and even talk like her so I am really struggling to keep from muting Kim and Kyle. The thing is I actually like Kyle. She is pretty normal. Kim, on the other hand is totally dependent on her children, has no social skills and pretty much complains about everything from the time she wakes up until she goes to bed.

The other thing I noticed is that unlike all of the other cities, the women in Beverly Hills actually have money. Lots and lots and lots of money. Obnoxious gobs of money. A $1000 chocolate Easter Bunny?

Camille Grammer. I don't know how Kelsey managed to stay married to her for as long as he did. She says that she is her own person and not in Kelsey's shadow but she calls him every five minutes. Their house is huge. Actually it is not even a house it is like a college campus. It is huge. But, as Camille is happy to pint out they have two other homes in LA, two in New York, one in Colorado, one in Hawaii and she probably listed more, but just like her interior designer, my eyes started to glaze over. The woman bought a tray for $5000. It was not gold or silver or platinum. It was just this thing that looked something from a pottery class. From the looks of it she was going to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on decorating an apartment in New York which she admitted she would not really be staying in because she was going to be staying at their place in The Hamptons.

I have not really formed an opinion on Ms. Maloof except that she has a very jealous husband. Extremely. So far it pains me to admit, but I like Kyle and Lisa VanderPump the best. Oh, and Brody Jenner's mom needs to cut back on the lip injections for awhile.

Which one was the aunt that was on Escape from Witch Mountain, Kim or Kyle?

Camille Grammer has come a looooong way from a video chick on MTV's Club MTV to allegedly being one of Heidi's girls she was a scandal back in the day, nabbed the right guy and is now worth a pretty penny. Your typical Hollywood Happy Hooker success story, lol.

some so called rich people have a way of making it seem that they have more money, than they actually have.

camille sounds tacky.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

I'd hate to be like that. Vapidly decorating rooms of places I'll never live in. Sounds like a rich person's version of being a gypsy.

Kate said...

So was this filmed when Kelsey and Camille were still married? Why on earth call your ex that often otherwise?

amazonblue said...

Kim was the child actress, she was quite busy until her early teens. She did a lot of episodic TV, Little House on the Prairie, etc.

Get a Life said...

Both Kim and Kyle were child actresses, but I think Kim was better known at the time..Kim was in Escape from Witch Mountain among other things and Kyle was on Little House on the Prairie.

Camille is an idiot and every time she opens her mouth I cringe for her in embarrassment.

Jessica said...

What are you talking about Enty? Brody Jenner's mom? She's not on the show. I don't think she looks much like Taylor either.

Kyle is enjoying the fact that she's married while her formerly richer (married into the Davis oil family back in the day) and doubtlessly more famous and older sister, Kim, struggles to deal with the fact that her youngest is 15 and she needs to start a new phase in her life. I don't get why everyone loves Kyle, who lives to shit-talk her fragile sister on camera. She's cruel. And "Enty" is full of it - Kim is insecure but is not whining. She's just hard to watch because she's way, way, lost right now.

Camille is a braggart. If she's got any decency she's embarrassed watching the footage of her talking about her homes, her husband, etc.

I like Lisa and Adrienne and poor Taylor with the freakiest plastic-surgeried face of them all. She strangely seems like a pretty nice woman.

chihuahuense said...

I agree, Bish. Kim is hard for me to watch because she is so freakin' pitiful, but dayum. Kyle is a sociopath. The way she tears her sister down is ridiculous. I didn't see it all, but that little gem where Kyle is talking about Kim to Kim's daughter, and then texting her daughter behind Kim's back but right in front of her....wow, just wow. They are a freak show and a half.

Once again, I find everyone highly unlikeable.

And that scene with the chocolate bunny and they were all clamoring to eat it? It was almost surreal and made me sick to my stomach.

Pookie said...

there's someone actaully named 'vanderpump'? i need to start watching it for that alone!

Moosefan said...

I cannot with these tricks. The whole "Real Housewives" thing was cute the first time around but now, its nothing but a bunch of whiney, bitchy, over indulged women with too much plastic surgery and not an ounce of decency. They want "Real", come and talk to the military wife who has a spouse deployed or getting ready to move for the 4th time in 4 years, or hows about the wife with a husband that has lost his job and she is now working 2 jobs. Sorry about the rant, but yall, I just cannot. As for Camille, the comments she made about her now ex girlfriend having a miscarriage, girl, thank you for showing everyone that no matter how much money you have, class cannot buy one bit.

ardleigh said...

Ms. Grammer's attitude goes to show you that money can buy you THINGS but it can't buy class or good taste.

califblondy said...

Brody's Mom was on the show briefly. I didn't recognize her at first because of the Botox.

Enty, I watched for the first time last night too and everything you said was right on target. I kinda liked all of 'em except for Camille. OMG, what a stupid bitch. It's fun to watch knowing now that since the taping Kelsey dumped her ass. If she couldn't handle being married to someone famous and wanted to be her own person why on earth did she ever hook-up with Kelsey? Oh ya, the moolah. She really likes to brag doesn't she?

The dynamic between the sisters is interesting. Kim and Kyle really go at it. At first I thought Kyle was a little tough, but Kim can throw some jabs too. Kyle's hubby sure is hot.

They all seem to have a ton of money. I'm going to stick with this one and hope the cameras were running when Kelsey kicks Camille to the curb.

KLM said...

@Jessica - Brody's mom made an appearance last night. I guess she is a friend of Taylor (? - I don't remember who it was but she made a brief appearance and she was scary looking).

As for Camille, she is ridiculous. I really hope she feels guilty watching this show now, especially in light of Kelsey ditching her ass. We get it, you have lots of money. You seriously don't have to keep proving it.

My favorite was when she said that lately she was flying commercial because she was trying to be green. Oh - and when she mentioned she had a surrogate to keep her body. What an asshole!

Kate said...

KLM- I thought she claimed it was Irritable Bowel Syndrome that prevented her from having children. Guess she forgot telling everyone that.

Paisley said...

I don't watch any of these Housewives shows, but Kim will always have a warm spot in my heart for her role in Tuff Turf. That's one of my favorite bad 80's movies.

Jamie's Girl said...

Kelsey should have dumped her when she 'cried' about her IBS and that she couldn't have babies because of diarrhea. She's a disgusting idiot. No wonder he quit her. Gold Digger/ Hooker Success Story. Wow.

Vanderpump is AWESOME!

parissucksliterally said...

I am with you Paisley.

fuck these stupid shows, and the obnoxious women on them.

Patty said...

I only saw the scene when they were all on a private plane and Kyle paniced at every sound and bump. What a piece of work!

KLM said...

Kate - I have selective memory. :) Maybe she said something like, and a benefit of having a surrogate is that I got to keep my body (or something along those lines).

When did IBS become a reason to not have children? Is this like Michele (sp?) having MS all of a sudden, thus accounting for her eating disorder, er, slenderness?

Sis said...

Good to know that I am not the only one who thinks Kyle is part sociopath!

And I hate to say but I feel sorry for Camille and I sort of like her...sort of.....

The money tossed around astounds me!!

MCH said...

Definitely noticed the money differences with these lovelies.

Camille comes across as very desperate & the mentioning of her husband, famous or not, is not that unusual for someone riding their spouses coattails. :) How drunk must he have been to allow her to go on this show??

I'm going to have to watch a few more episodes before determining who I like (or love to hate). I haven't found my NeNe yet.

captivagrl said...

Camille counted out 17 homes. 17!

Ice Angel said...

Camille outsourced her child?????

lanasyogamama said...

I think I can't watch this, too depressing.

There is nothing Real about these Housewives. I agree with everything Moosefan said above.

Barton Fink said...

@Pookie, I too was smitten by the name Vanderpump. I want her to hang out with Goldfrapp, and eventually they'll form a fashion house: Vanderpump&Goldfrapp.

bionic bunny! said...

funny, i've never seen a single episode of ANY of these "housewives", but i was tempted to catch this one because i immediately recognized kim "richards" from one of my very favorite shows as a kid, "nanny and the professor". it only ran one or two seasons, but we all watched it, and a friend of mine was even an extra at least once that i can remember. her face hasn't changed much.
but, thanks for the heads up, guys, now i don't have to bother!
