Why I'm Standing With Lisa Rinna

As an avid Housewives fan, I am very passionate about the truth. Not just the truth but the facts. Now, as viewers, we are only seeing a fraction of what actually happened. This is something we tend to forget as we get so involved in the storylines as if this is actually happening to us. Maybe we have been there before with our own friendships. Betrayal is a nasty beast and it can pop up from those the closest to you. Sadly, it is what has kept this Bravo franchise afloat. That and some incredibly dynamic and head-scratching characters reality television has ever seen. When daytime's own Lisa Rinna joined RHOBH in Season 5, no one knew what to expect. She made a great villain on both Days Of Our Lives and Melrose Place. Yet, she knew how to laugh at herself which made her somewhat endearing. 

One thing that was consistent about Rinna is that she never backed down, even if it painted her in the most awful light. This cost her friendships and made her look much harder than maybe she was. We do not know her personally but we do know this persona. Some might say she is to blame for Denise Richards bowing out of the series. That was not her but rather her trying to get Richards to own her behavior. Did anyone catch Richards flipping from Season 9 to 10? She went from a free-spirited beach girl who was so open about sex and fun to uptight and controlled. It was as if they cast her wicked sister and she was horribly unlikable. She dug her own grave for that one. Now, they say don't look back so we won't. Season 12 has been hard for Rinna and she has been angry. 

There have been rumblings about why she is no longer on QVC but she has an amazing lipline and a new Rinna Rose. She is living her best life but sadly, she lost her mother, Lois which was hard for everyone because we all loved her. Lois was the epitome of a fun mother who just told it like it was. There was something much harder about Lisa this season and she admitted it. Then, Aspen came, and with that, a sprinter meltdown like never before. The only thing is that the cameras supposedly were down for the night. Now, fans will know it was not Rinna's meltdown but rather Kathy Hilton who came on last season as someone so quirky and relatable.

In a twist, Kathy changed her attitude dramatically when they were at a bar/restaurant. It seemed she was upset over her tequila line not being the main attraction and she had a hissy fit like a child. Then, they went to a club where she proceeded to have another fit that led her and Rinna to leave where she went ballistic at the Aspen home according to texts exchanged by Rinna and Erika Girardi. No one actually knows what happened at the home but it was somehow leaked to the press. Kathy's sister, RHOBH OG Kyle Richards has alleged that it came from Erika's camp. Both Rinna and Erika denied it. 

Why do I believe Rinna? Here's why. Kathy Hilton is an extremely public figure and has been for decades. She was behaving so poorly in public that anyone who saw that could have tipped the press off. They did not need one of the cast members to say anything. Furthermore, she was acting like a petulant child for hours prior to the sprinter incident so there was plenty of time for this to get leaked. Finally, to clear up some untruths, in the preview for the reunion, Kathy tried to say that Rinna got LVP off of the show. That is incorrect. Dorit Kemsley had that dog she gave away from Vanderpump Dogs. Then Teddi Mellencamp got involved. Then there was the Radar Online "leak" which everyone thought was LVP so Kyle went to confront her and that was when the final betrayal happened. Rinna had nothing to do with it, she just does a good LVP impression.

So, this is why I stand with Lisa Rinna. Is she perfect? No. Has she made mistakes and can she be messy? Absolutely. However, this is one time when people need to open their eyes and see that Kyle is always playing the victim. There is not a single cast member she has not had a problem with. Has she forgotten that she and her family were uninvited from Nicky Hilton's wedding then she was put back on the list with two of her daughters at the last minute? Kathy does what she wants when she wants. She was a spoiled brat and now she has to own up to her behavior. Case closed.

A 'Jerseylicious' Split!

  photo courtesy of When you were on a semi-successful reality show, especially as one of the key players, and everyone watched your love story unfold, it only makes sense they will want to keep following you after the series has ended. Such has been the case for 'Jerseylicious' star, Tracy DiMarco , who always went head-to-head with Olivia Blois-Sharpe on the show based around the never-ending drama at the Jersey salon, The Gatsby. Eventually, DiMarco got her happily ever after when she married Corey Epstein in her dream wedding. She continued to pursue her passion, have three kids, develop a wildly successful podcast, and work on clothing and accessories.  But, when you are in the public eye, boasting 541K followers on Instagram , almost everything you do is up for scrutiny. Fans (and haters) began to notice a lack of presence when it came to her husband, Corey and questioned if their marriage was okay. There is an abundance of photos of daughters, Skylar and

'The Real L Word' Cast- Where Are They Now?

  photo courtesy of With the return of the hit Showtime series, 'The L Word,' it makes fans of the original show and ultimate reality spinoff, 'The Real L Word,' quite nostalgic. Actors can keep acting but reality stars can drift off into the clouds after their 15 minutes of fame are over. TRLW lasted three seasons with a revolving door of lesbians who soon became like friends and family. Initially based in California, the show followed the lives of a handful of gay women, somehow intertwined in life, and what it was like to date, fall in love, have sex, try to make babies, propose, be successful, and so much more. By the final season, the series went bi-coastal, utilizing NYC as a playground, as well. The show ended in 2012 with two weddings and a lot of tears. So, where are they now?
