Inside Eileen Davidson’s Shady Agenda To Manipulate Her ‘RHOBH’ Costars Into Hating Lisa Vanderpump

Posted on Apr 1 2016 - 12:34pm by BeachSpin

Lisa Vanderpump and Eileen_RHOBH

There have been two buzz words that have dominated this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and they both start with ‘M.’ “Manipulator” and a whispered “Munchausen,” have been like dirty words with this bunch. We might as well throw the word ‘Lisa’ in, because Lisa Rinna and Lisa Vanderpump have been the two alleged perpetrators of all things ‘M,’ in Beverly Hills. There has been one slippery character that has been operating under the radar — and that is Eileen Davidson. All it takes is a short look back, to know that Eileen’s chest deserves the biggest scarlet ‘M’ of all.

Eileen has had an endless beef with Lisa Vanderpump, because of one question asked about her marriage, early in the season. The question may have been a little intrusive, but the fact that Eileen and Vinnie’s marriage started with an affair, is not a news flash. Vinnie gambled away his marriage and jumped into bed with a married woman — uncomfortable maybe, but not a secret. Eileen was so breathlessly offended, that she has demanded an unattainable level of apologetic remorse, for months. Most remember when last season, Brandi Glanville threw wine in Eileen’s face, and blasted her as a home wrecking harlot. This incident was forgotten in short order. I guess as a rookie, Eileen was shy to formulate an agenda.

Eileen pretends to move on, and begins proclaiming Rinna as a hopeless people pleaser, and one easily manipulated. She strangely edges over to the dark and shady side, with Yolanda Foster and Erika ‘Painkillr’ Girardi. Rinna is Eileen’s soap-opera sister, and seems desperate for approval from the Emmy winning hustler. Eileen knows it, and subtly seizes the opportunity to throw Rinna to the wolves, in order to expose Lisa as a dastardly manipulator, not the rosy Queen, whom we all adore.

Filmed conversations begin to go down, where Rinna is spilling the beans about her gossip guilt, and the crock of nonsense that she believes to be true, about Yolanda. Eileen weaves in the completely unrelated beef with Lisa into the dialogue, and works to tie Rinna’s quips with Lisa, to some imagined spell that Lisa casts over every conversation. Rinna begs for Eileen’s advice, because she “values her friendship.” One uncomfortable personal question and Munch-Madness are successfully linked—and the common factor is Lisa Vanderpump. Eileen’s love affair with personal accountability ends, when one is faced with Vanderpump’s hypnotic powers.

Rinna pants to keep Eileen’s acceptance, and Eileen continues to influence her to see Lisa’s alleged pattern. Rinna continues to speak truth, but is successfully swayed off-topic, and onto Eileen’s agenda. Yolanda’s sham is ignored, and Lisa is targeted—and they call Lisa a manipulator?? As the season hourglass drains, Eileen pounds Lisa for the umpteenth time to assume an unreasonable and dramatic level of accountability. Eileen looks utterly absurd, but with Rinna on board, the cast actually entertains her repetitive drivel. Fans begin to wonder why Eileen wants her tawdry affair to stand in the spotlight, and almost wish that Brandi would pop in, to douse her with another glass of wine.

The saddest casualty is Lisa Rinna. A strong fan favorite who tells it like it is, has become weak, and intensely disliked by fans. She was one munch away from escaping the season as a lone truth-telling hero—much like she did, when she called Kim Richards out on her addiction. Rinna hustled in the wrong direction—and a battered Vanderpump remains the adored fan favorite.

Davidson should have gotten a few tips from her husband—because when she gambled against Lisa, she lost.

    Lisa V reminds me of John Gotti…She’s the Teflon queen. It doesn’t mean what you throw at her is wrong..it just means (for some odd reason), it doesn’t stick.

  • Birdie

    BRAVO–Eileen is the biggest and most annoying instigator of the season. She needs Home- wrecker’s Anonymous to deal with her conscience.

  • Excellent blog, Beach! All this video footage of Eileen clearly manipulating and not one of LVP yet they want to label Vanderpump the manipulator?

    • BeachSpin

      TY! 😘

  • JustNotCrazyAboutBitches

    Too bad so sad LVP … it’s time to pay the piper. You reap what you sow! If I were she, I’d quit and just do VP Fools full time. She fits better with those coke heads who are paid to idolize her anyway.

    • Jojomama

      What are you talking about? LVP is more popular now than ever before thanks to those bi atch actresses failed take down.

  • Dave

    Eileen is a horrible human being. Her next starring role is wicked witch of the west.

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Thank you Beach for taking the time to point out the true manipulator. I think Eileen is a total hag. She can’t let anything go.Eileen is the biggest manipulator one out of all of them. I hope Lisa R & Eileen don’t return to the show. Lisa R has a big mouth and is such a nosey bitch, can’t stand her anymore.

    • Nana to 3

      I think Yolanda is manipulating Eileen behind the scenes.

      • RHONJ Fan

        I got that impression also.

      • justanothermary

        Absolutely.

    • BeachSpin

      YW Reality—I agree 100%.

  • sideof Sour Cream

    I’m bummed about Eileen. I thought I would really like her, the first season when they filmed her amazing tomato garden set up. She seemed like someone who might be down to earth, a little more relate-able to me than the average HW.

    oh well!

    • RealitytvJunkie

      I really liked Eileen last season. I thought she and Rinna were both refreshing cast additions. This season I want them gone.

      • Elizabeth Fisher

        co-signing!

    • BriannaG

      I used to like them too.
      This season Eileen annoys the hell out of me, and Lisa R behaves like a total idiot.

      • RRRobin

        They’re both f’g annoying bit*hes.

    • BeachSpin

      Me too…such a shame.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      I think that is part of Eileen’s problem – she is insecure around these women because her life is more down to earth. That’s why she calls them shallow for liking nice bags etc – the irony is that Eileen doesn’t actually seem to do anything outside of her soap world life whereas LVP has lots of nice bags AND does a lot of very unshallow things like supporting charities etc.

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    Great blog Beach. I agree that Rinna is the sad casualty of all of this. From their first lunch together last season I felt Eileen looked down her nose at Rinna and Rinna kind of worshiped her – in Soap World Eileen is probably Queen and maybe that’s why she can’t handle LVP in the real world. I think Eileen controls Rinna by making her feel like sh*t. When Rinna isn’t playing the game how she wants she sneers, gets icy, badmouths her to Yolanda and Erika. She has even convinced Rinna that the reason she looks like and asshole is because she took a bullet for HER! She has taken everything Rinna told her in confidence and used it for her own agenda. Rinna shared things with her as a friend and let off steam – Eileen then forces her to share it or confront LVP and if she doesn’t she makes her feel like a coward.

    • belleyd

      i saw a comment once by someone that had gone to SUR. Lisa sits at a back table looking bitter & pissed off while Ken is at the bar flirting w/every female that comes into the restaurant..their marriage is a sham

      • justanothermary

        I don’t believe this. The way that Ken takes up for Lisa no matter what shows me that he loves and admires his wife.

      • SilverHair

        If this was true it would be getting attention somewhere. She is on two shows with cameras following, plus TMZ is always around the corner. Never, ever heard of this.

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        It’s funny because I often see IGs or tweet pics from people in PUMP with a smiling LVP. Ken may well flirt but so does LVP – they are secure enough in their marriage to do that.

      • Bryan

        And I see comments on here by people who do not like people with money and people who are successful and makes them so bitter and angry they come here and make things up

        • xxjacks

          Like you do, and call women sl ut s and worse, why do you hate all women except LV? ….very sad.

          • Bryan

            because she is fabulous and you aren’t, you are poor and whats even more sad is that you up arrowed you’re own comment

          • xxjacks

            You still didnt answer the question *as usual*….and how poor are you”? Creep and a woman hater, people must barf on you.

          • Marly

            OMG! I do love your wit! 😂😂🍸

          • Bryan

            Thank you =)

      • Dee Enko

        You saw one comment by someone who claimed they went to SUR and saw Lisa looking bitter while Ken flirted with every female that came into the restaurant? How long did it take for this person to eat? That was enough for you to now pronounce their marriage a sham? That’s a ridiculous jump to an even more ridiculous conclusion.

      • Ruth

        Bull

      • debbie

        oh come on.. With everything she has to think about, no wonder she might look uphappy once in awhile.. Your friends aren’t there every night are they?

      • Marly

        Oh please. Get a job.

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Beverly! YES–soap opera Emmy worship. You NAILED it with this comment.

    • Andrea Schmidt

      Agree totally, disgusting dirty game.

  • Pandora403

    I liked Eileen and Lisa R. in season one and I thought they would bring a touch of class to the show after having to deal with the likes of Brandi and Kim. My opinion has certainly changed this season. I am also at the point if I have to hear one more word about Yolanda and her illness I’m going to throw a shoe at the TV screen. What’s the big deal if Lisa R. did say the dreaded word “Munchausen’s?” Is it necessary to watch her grovel and beg forgiveness from Queen Yolanda? Haven’t we all at one time or another doubted something we were told? Big freakin’ deal. As for LVP she is by no means a perfect human being. Who the hell is? But fans like her for a variety of reasons. I admire her love of animals and the causes she’s involved in. I enjoy watching what appears to be a happy marriage with Ken. She seems to have raised children who are not spoiled brats by Hollywood standards. I also enjoy her sense of humor. Maybe her cast mates could take a few lessons from her and they might be fan favorites, too. Sadly, this season of BH has given me one major headache.

    • bellota

      ITA, pandora. The best parts of the show this season have been the few glimpses of LVP and Kyle being silly together and making fun of each other. I am not even a generally a Kyle fan, but thank god for those moments. I would like to see more of that type of fun thing. And I do love seeing Lisa and Ken interacting. The sad thing is, I think that no one else really has that good of a relationship where they can even do that. Certainly not Ericka and her grandhusband.

  • MidwestMiddie

    Well Said, Beach. Thanks.
    I doubt if Eileen will be accepting any Tweets from you. LOL

    • RealitytvJunkie

      LOL

    • BeachSpin

      IKR–pity. 😥

  • Elizabeth Fisher

    Outstanding Beach!

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Elizabeth! 😊

  • Nana to 3

    I agree Eileen is manipulating Rinna. I see Yolanda as the master manipulator behind the scenes manipulating Eileen, Brandi and Kim. Even Kyle to a point in past seasons.

    Yolanda’s jealousy of LVP is the root of it all. Even Kyle is jealous of LVP but doesn’t want the fan backlash from previous seasons.

    Yolanda spread the LVP venom to Eileen behind the scenes off camera. Thus Eileen’s easily forgiveness of Brandy last season and her reason for not “letting it go” this season.

    Oh to be a fly on the wall when the cameras aren’t around. If only David would talk. I just can’t shake the feeling that Yolanda is the Master Manipulator behind the LVP take-down attempt

    • StilettoCutsQuick

      It is so obvious that yo hates LVP and LVP tolerates Yo because of her relationship with Mohamed and the kids.

      • Weeds1

        LVP is a lady, Yo is just a formerly pretty face.

        • xxjacks

          Yo is a lady, LVP is a manipulater and all the houewives know it.

          • Chicco Beanz

            Yo is a real piece of work. She’s a hypocrite and believes that her standards of etiquette and friendship don’t apply to her, just everyone else. She’s also as interesting as watching paint dry, with the IQ of a pebble.

          • Marly

            Boy are you off the mark! Yo is a liar and uses men for money. Now she is divorced, broke and off the show! Karma is a bitch!

    • Sherri Scott

      I
      Wish
      David
      Would
      Tell us
      The real
      Story.
      I think he will in the future.

    • criley

      Agree with you 100%

  • StilettoCutsQuick

    Eileen fucked a married man, doest matter how long they have been together that is low down

    • BriannaG

      Bingo! Eileen and her husband are both cheaters. It did happen, they had an affair,and it’s a known fact. It’s not a rumor. Eileen being offended agenda is plain idiotic and desperate.

    • bellota

      And she was married at the time, too. they are both slime balls

  • darknight

    I agree with all of this, but I can’t crown Eileen queen manipulator, because there is another who is more dastardly and evil, our Emperor of Lymes. SHE has manipulated everyone. She manipulated all the women to go after LVP, she’s manipulated her children to act like they have fake illnesses (the non gigi’s have lyme and the gigi has hashimoto’s disease ), she’s manipulated thousand of fans into believing her “journey” and her quack treatments, she’s manipulated her husband into thinking she was a “good dutch girl”, she has manipulated the show into being nothing more than a bunch of petty conflicts and white bath robes, and she is trying to manipulate a court to throw out her prenup so she can get her hands on more money. Eileen is merely Darth Vader to Yolanda’s Darth Sidious.

    • Nana to 3

      Ditto I feel Yolanda is manipulating Eileen behind the scenes as well

      • darknight

        That has been my assumption all along. Yolanda is manipulating Eileen by telling her how ill she is and Eileen afraid of the backlash backed the wrong horse.

    • RHONJ Fan

      “Emperor of Lymes” is truly brilliant and very befitting.

    • BriannaG

      I think the show is damaged beyond repair. Eileen and Lisa R have to go. They annoyed the fans. Erica is nothing, another Yo’s hateful sidekick. Yo is a hater and a total fraud.
      LVP is being attacked and held to different standards again.
      Kyle is still riding Kim’s story line, now she is all “damaged” from that relationship with her drunk sister. Kyle “the victim” got really old…
      I only like Katherine so far…

      • darknight

        I’m afraid you’re right. LVP can still do her Vanderpump Rules, but everyone else needs to be shown the door.

    • Bryan

      and this is Lipsa

      • Birdie

        She’s gained weight.

      • Dingo7

        LOL

    • Marsbars09

      Your comment is spot on. I think everyone is forgetting the woman that lied about having a serious illness and manipulating the entire universe into feeling sorry for her.

      • darknight

        She’s vacationing in Bora Bora laughing her ass off at how she played these basic bitches.

    • Sherri Scott

      YYYAAAAAASSSSSSS,I COULDN’T HAVE SAID IT ANY MORE CLEARER!!!

      SPOT ON

    • Perturbed

      BRAVO Dark Knight (no pun intended, well . .) !! Yonut is the very DEFINITION of Munchausen’s, and most of these women know it. They just don’t want to be the bad guy on tv! How Eileen thinks anything LVP said even EQUATES to Yonut’s level of manipulation is beyond me! She’s either extremely vindictive or pathetically stupid! Ugh!

      • darknight

        I’ve always considered her mind numbingly stupid, with a dash of vindictive.

    • crystal111

      Brilliant analogy!!!

  • belleyd

    Hate me all you want, but I think LVP is a shady, cunning manipulator. She has played the game so smart nobody can expose her w/out backlash..don’t forget she was once an actress too. Like Tre, she has Andy in her back pocket.

    • Chloe

      You’re entitled to your opinion but opinions are not facts. Meanwhile Beach Spin presented audio and visual proof of Eileen’s manipulation.

    • Bryan

      Poor People do not belong on the BH show, nor does any kind of illnesses, we had enough of that with OC

    • Darris

      I don’t think VP is all that innocent either…you don’t have half the wife cast current and present describe you as cunning, manipulative etc if you weren’t doing something. Where there is smoke…usually there is fire…I just think some of the other cast mates have bigger fires burning than VP and shouldn’t be so quick to play victim.

    • JustSayin

      She has played the game so smart nobody can expose her w/out backlash – YES, she has! And it’s why I love her (personally). Her manipulations are much more subtle, and can almost always be excused as something else (it was just a joke/question/whatever). She’s always thinking several steps ahead and positions herself accordingly.

      Although, I don’t see any of that as being shady, I see it as being smart. She’s one of the few to play the reality tv game and consistently come out on top. Good for her.

      • sideof Sour Cream

        That’s why I like her too JS.

    • BeachSpin

      Gotta love a different opinion–thanks beliyed!

    • Perturbed

      I think LVP probably joked around with Kyle & LR about Yonut’s selfies, but who didn’t this past year? And just because she wasn’t dumb enough to use Munchausen’s on camera doesn’t make her manipulative, imo.

    • Sarah Brooks

      Why can’t people see she’s guiding the damn show, just like producers do. A producer does the same things, asks questions, plants stories, points the wire toward a target and lights it up. Lisa prolly ran after LR knowing it might become a store line with a little encouraging. Without drama it’s boring, she’s prolly putting bugs here and there and the other ladies are such airheads that now that they’ve figured it out they can’t handle it. LVP has 20+ restaurants, 2 shows, charities and a compound to manage. She’s built a 65 million dollar empire cause she’s SMART and the other women are dumb actresses or gold diggers. Don’t tear her down, I don’t hear people calling successful men manipulators they call them smart, clever or business men. Women are always conniving bitches and liars. Just look at the elections, such double standards. Give her some respect and stop being so jealous.

  • MarcoPolo

    Yolanda is obviously the grand marshall of the manipulation parade–however, Eileen has been most definitely jerking her little minion Rinna around–no doubt about it. LVP isn’t allowing herself to be manipulated by Yo–hence the need for simpleton Eileen to try to pin the nonsense on her.

    • Chloe

      That’s right.

  • BriannaG

    Hey, guys. Sorry for off-top. I just read that final sit-down btw Jac and Teresa/Melissa did happen. And Jac is furious on social Media calling Melissa a coward.
    Also she is angry about Teresa using the “R” word (retarded?). Jac is mad.
    I GUESS Teresa used the word talking about Nicholas? I may be wrong, but it wouldn’t surprise me. Teresa hit below the belt with her nasty comment about Nick’s autism being bad karma for Jac’s wrongdoings and constantly emphasizing that she has 4 HEALTHY dotters when she was talking about Jac. Any thoughts?

    • T’s Martini Lounge

      With Tre’s limited mental abilities, her calling anyone ‘retarded’ is quite ridiculous.

  • Darris

    I’m sorry I could agree with a lot in this blog but what you’re not going to do is leave Rinna ad some casualty. She made her own bed and she can lay it. Nobody forced her to go around running her mouth about things she said and saw between herself, VP and Kyle just like Eileen wasn’t forcing her either. Rinna had no problem getting all the ladies riled up by the things SHE choose to inform them about. Rinna has told Eileen herself that VP was “manipulative/directional/one of the original witches of Salem” and they found common ground because Eileen (who I like) was butt hurt/annoyed that VP asked that question. Rinna played the game and Rinna lost the game just like Kyle played it a few seasons back and lost and didn’t want to take a beating again this season.

    • JustSayin

      I agree, Rinna tried to play both sides and got herself into this mess. How long is she going to hide behind the excuse of being a “people pleaser”? If your opinion changes based on who you’re with, and you keep jumping sides, sounds like you’re just two-faced.

      • Perturbed

        I agree with you AND Weeds. While Eileen is obviously the schemer here and determined to bring LVP down because her feelings were hurt, LR IS two-faced and just wants to be on the “winning team”. She really must have a pea brain though, haha! But all in all, I find BOTH women highly objectionable – just for different reasons. It’s amazing, because last season I really liked Eileen and could put up with Rinna’s annoying personality because she had the courage to point out Kim’s breakdown when nobody else would. Now, I just want them both gone!

    • Weeds1

      I give Rinna a smallish pass because she’s so obviously not as bright as LVP or Eileen. Eileen however, gets no pass because if she wanted to shut down talk about her sordid affair, she wouldn’t continually bring it up. Looks to me as if that’s the only storyline available to her since she doesn’t want to bring up her problems with Vinnie. The stupidity of thinking fans would turn on LVP instead of her is born of her inflated ego.

    • BeachSpin

      I said Rinna hustled in the wrong direction–what more do ya want…the casualty IMO is her fan fave status.

  • Marsbars09

    I don’t know who is sorrier-Eileen or LisaR. These women had a great opportunity to re-invent themselves on the housewives platform but instead they showed themselves to be the loonies they really are.
    I don’t know if LVP is a master manipulator or not, but it’s clear as day what Eileen is doing. Eileen is so angry for whatever reason she is twisting Lisa’s brain-starved mind into believing LVP is manipulating her. I wouldn’t be surprised if Eileen is actually conspiring with Yonuts, Erika and Kyle into getting LVP off the show.
    It’s also apparent the reality show platform is not for LisaR and Eileen. I hope Bravo gives them their walking papers after this season.

    • Sherri Scott

      I know right,i can’t believe she is so hell bent on bringing LVP Down.

      • darknight

        She’s reaching Kelly Bensimon levels of obsessive hate.

    • Andrea Schmidt

      I think so too, see my earlier message.

  • Marsbars09

    After watching the clip of Eileen and LVP talking while they were in the Hamptons I can see why Eileen thought LVP wasn’t really apologetic about asking her about her affair with Vince. LVP chuckled when she apologized. Eileen probably took that as LVP dismissing her feelings. You can see the rage in Eileen’s face after that.

    • Chloe

      I would chuckle too if a grown ass woman was in my face begging for an apology because she spread her legs to a married man while she was married.

      • Dingo7

        I don’t agree with Eileen but that’s not fair either. How her marriage started is her business and people only focus on the affair part but they ignore the fact that before the affair started she did confess to her husband that she had feelings for another man. At least she did that much.

        • Sarah Brooks

          You keep saying it’s “personal” or “her personal life” She chose to go on a reality show and talk about it multiple times. She was not too mad about Brandi saying it. I’m so sick of people pulling the “my private life” card. If you want a private life stay a civilian, otherwise and especially if you’re on a reality show and look dead in the camera and bring it up it’s more than fair game. Also you defend her but in the same entry you talk about her convo with her old husband, why isn’t that private or personal? oh, right, because it’s all over the shop…

          • Dingo7

            You’ve pretty much missed the entire point I was making. It has everything to do with people judging her marriage based on not knowing all the facts. We don’t know how it all went down. According to her, she informed her husband before hand that she had feelings for another man but no one talks about that. At least she had the decently to be up front about it.

            Also, just because she’s on a reality doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have the right to feel uncomfortable about certain aspects of her life being on blast. she’s allowed to have those feelings just like everyone else.

          • Sarah Brooks

            Well to top your point she seems to promote “multiple” sides so who knows what the truth is. If she’s going to bring it up throw it all out there, don’t give us just a taste because that just leaves us to fill in the blanks. From what I hear the Soap community knew all the details years ago so this isn’t something new to her.

          • Dingo7

            I have no idea what multiples sides you are referring to and what ever that truth is, it’s no one’s business.

            1. She never brought up her marriage or discussed it detail. Brandi brought it up last season and LVP brought it up earlier this season. She never brought it up herself.
            2. She made it clear when Brandi questioned her marriage that she did inform her husband that she was having feelings for another man.
            3. She owes no one an explanation of anything regarding her personal life.

            Just because she’s on a reality tv show doesn’t mean she has to accept people being intrusive into her personal life. You can fill in all the details you want but that doesn’t mean she has to explain anything to anyone.

          • chacha1

            I respectfully disagree, stay off reality shows if you do not want your reality to be public …..

          • Dingo7

            Again you’re missing the point. It has nothing to do with not wanting your Reality to be public. She has the right to NOT want to talk about her reality whether it’s public or not. Just because you are on Reality TV doesn’t mean you HAVE to discuss your reality.

          • JustSayin

            I’ve been back and forth as I follow this chain of conversation. I agree with some of your points, like the way she explained that her and Vinnie both went to their respective spouses and told them they had feelings for other people – if it truly went down like that, kudos to them because that’s exactly how it should be handled.

            I also agree that Eileen doesn’t have to discuss it if she doesn’t want to – but she did. And she seems to want to blame LVP for it, for asking the questions, when really it’s her own damn fault for answering them.

          • Dingo7

            Eileen never volunteered to discuss her marriage. In other words, she NEVER was the FIRST to volunteer what went down. Brandi asked her first last season and Lisa asked her again this season. I have no idea why she didn’t shut it down if she was comfortable. I know I would have. It seemed like she was caught off guard on both occasions.

            I think we all can agree that she needs to drop it because now she’s looking like a bitch with a bone to pick.

          • Marly

          • Kirsty Taylor

            Yes she does have that right, however she should have said that at the time LVP was asking her questions about it. And also never discussed it last season. She can’t pick and choose!

          • Dingo7

            I agree. I said already in an earlier post that she should have shut that conversation down in the first place.

          • Kirsty Taylor

            Sorry never saw that, my apologies

            Mute point now, the whore is off the show.

          • Dingo7

            It’s not a mute point and it has nothing to do with her being off the show. At the time my comment was made, she WAS ON THE SHOW.

          • Sarah Brooks

            Alright, Eileen, go take your meds

          • Dingo7

            Passive aggressive much?

          • Sarah Brooks

            nope that was a direct statement 😉

          • Dingo7

            It’s a pathetic passive aggressive comment because you couldn’t make a valid point. Usually people resort to insults in those situations, so I get it.

          • Sarah Brooks

            i agree you saying it’s passive aggressive (when it’s not) is a desperate attempt at an insult so I’m glad you realized it. bye now, Eileen

          • Sarah Brooks

            I agree you saying it was passive aggressive was a poor and desperate attempt to insult me so i’m glad you realized it. Bye now, eileen!

          • Dingo7

            Lol pathetic. You ain’t even trying.

          • Marly

            You sure do look pathetic. Eileen the whore.

          • Dingo7

            Why are you responding to old posts?

          • Marly

            No,you are very odd, Eileen is a nasty, mean cheating whore and a bitter one at that. You are very passive aggressive and insulted the poster above, making your own point, I just read this diatribe of yours and you make no common sense at all. It doesn’t matter, the viewers got our message across and the nasty bitter whore that is Eileen is gone.

          • Dingo7

            I don’t care what you think about me or my posts from months ago.

          • chacha1

            plus she was 8 months pregnant and Vinnie was still married !!!

          • DEXTER

            Yes. But LVP was not talking about. She was not referring to an adulterous affair. She was talking about a romantic love affair. How romantic it was they met on set for a screen kiss. Did she know she loved him at that first kiss? But angry Eileen has to keep her BS “I told my husband first”. Eileen wrong. LVP RIGHT

          • Dingo7

            Eileen told Brandi last season she told her husband up front. She didn’t mention that when Lisa Vanderpump brought it up.

            And it doesn’t matter what LVP was referring to, Eileen was uncomfortable talking about it and people should respect that. That’s as far as I go with giving Eileen her props. Now, as LVP says, she’s a dog with a bone and needs to give it a rest.

          • DEXTER

            Well then Eileen should have said hey Lisa this makes me uncomfortable. As great as LVP is she is not a mind reader. Yet.

          • Dingo7

            I agree. I’ve said this very same thing more than once already.

          • chacha1

            that slug Yolanda also doesn’t want her children brought into anything yet every episode we have to hear about “My SHeSHe this My SheSHe that”

        • chacha1

          Brandi threw wine in her face last season but I guess that is okay because Brandi is nothing but a used up old drunk … Brandi of all people became the ‘moral police’ that episode and Eileen let her get away with it

          • Dingo7

            That has nothing to do with the point I have made.

          • Jojomama

            Omg, you are so annoying Dingo7

          • Dingo7

            Not my problem.

        • Chicco Beanz

          Well her confession was never a topic of discussion for viewers. If you scroll up another user quotes what LVP said. It wasn’t an offensive question at all. Eileen’s just embarrassed for her past indiscretion. That’s her issue and hers alone. Had SHE not made it a big deal, no one would care or they would have gotten over it episodes ago. I get and respect what you are saying, but it’s really not flying. This was an Eileen created situation. She needed a storyline, so she made one. Everyone knows that LVP is RHOBH.

          • Dingo7

            People and this junk about storylines. That’s not how reality television works. These people do not create their own story lines.

            Eileen never started any of the conversations about her affair, others did. She did not willingly volunteer any of that information so she never created that storyline. If that were true, that storyline would have kicked off last season when Brandi brought it up. However because she won’t let this stupid apology thing rest, it blew up into something else completely and carried over into Lisa Rinna’s manipulative drama.

        • MissTony

          Don’t care. Eileen is a delusional nag, and a cheating slut!

          • Dingo7

            I don’t care who cares or not. I’ve stated my opinion.

          • MissTony

            Fair.

    • JustSayin

      I think the problem is that LVP ISN’T sorry (nor should she be, in my opinion), she was just giving the apology to be polite/diplomatic and shut Eileen up. Eileen wants her to actually BE sorry, so they’re at an impasse. Rather than realize that and move on, it appears Eileen thinks she can change LVP’s mind by nagging her to death about it.

      • Sandy Wood

        Great insight JS…well summarized!

      • DizzieMe

        Eileen is pathetic! She’s clearly watched past seasons and trying to use past slurs against LVP. Being the genius that she is, she didn’t pay close attention to how that turned out for others in the past. Frankly I feel insulted that they think we the viewers will believe anything we’re told without seeing proof. They MAKE UP the strangest stories too!! Guess they have to make stuff up seeing how LVP has nothing to hide. They keep saying she thinks she’s perfect. But the truth is THEY THINK SHE IS!

      • Yolo Idid a Hadid

        Eileen cheated, LVP has NO reason to be sorry and apologize to the cheating eileen.

        • Dingo7

          Yeah but this has nothing to do with Eileen cheating. It’s really no one’s business what she does in her personal life to be honest and fair. The thing is that Lisa was a bit dismissive however it’s not her fault if she doesn’t feel she’s done anything wrong and it’s totally out of line for Eileen to trying and force a sincere apology when LVP doesn’t understand what she’s done wrong. It’s crazy.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      The problem is that Eileen never actually told LVP what her real grievance was so LVP was never going to be able to apologize the way Eileen wanted. LVP’s instant response when Eileen sat down with her was a very nice “oh darling I would never want you to be uncomfortable, if ever you don’t want to talk about something just say”. Eileen could have said, “that’s great thanks” but instead she went on and insulted LVP by comparing it to Brandi last season and then said “the thing is you went on and on asking more questions” which is why LVP then said “I apologize for asking…too many questions”. At that point I don’t think LVP could quite believe what she was hearing and it was clear that Eileen wanted to make this a big deal. Then the next night Eileen says she didn’t feel it was resolved (because LVP apologized for what Eileen told her was the issue rather than what Eileen really meant) and LVP then apologized for asking her about her life – that was a careful way of covering the subject without being specific in case she insulted her again but Eileen chose to see it as another non-apology. After that Eileen dismissed LVP’s first apology because it was “for asking too many questions” completely whitewashing the fact that was what she told LVP. In Dubai she claimed that LVP said something “very offensive” and that is the real issue – Eileen finds the word AFFAIR offensive but to admit that would make her look like the biggest hypocrite ever because that is exactly what it was, an AFFAIR and what else was LVP supposed to call it? That is completely on Eileen. LVP was never going to be able to give the right apology because Eileen didn’t want to admit what her real problem was.

      • Marsbars09

        Hi BH! I find it ironic Eileen didn’t appear to have much to say when Brandi threw a glass of wine in her face after Eileen admitted to cheating on her ex-husband with her current husband, Vince. Where was her rage then?

        • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

          Hi Mars! Exactly. She actually brought it up then and Brandi and Yolanda were strangers to her at that point…and they were sitting in a busy restaurant!

        • criley

          Yolanda liked Brandi- Eileen is YoYos muppet

      • Dottie WhiteTrashGal

        Boom.

      • UndergroundExpress

        I wish LVP had pulled a Nene Leakes and told Erectile Dysfunction “close your legs to married men”

      • DEXTER

        And LVP used the word as in LOVE AFFAIR whereas Eileen’s shame hears only TAWDRY HOMEWRECKER AFFAIR CHEATER

        • MissTony

          That’s what I call it/ a tawdry homewrecking affair.

      • debbie

        I think Eileen was afraid to fight brandi last season, so she’s taking everything she felt last season and putting it on lisa v this season.

    • Dingo7

      I totally get that as well. It seemed as if LVP was a bit dismissive and I have defended Eileen with that regard BUT you can force someone to be sincere if they don’t feel they’ve done anything wrong. Eileen needs to really let it go.

      • Kissme

        Plus it was 2 days after the conversation :/ I would have been thrown off by it also. I think LVP could have been more sincere but 2 days, really.

      • DEXTER

        This was the third apology.

        • Debbie Reed

          Actually it was the first real (thanks to Kyle) apology.

          • MissTony

            Please, there was never even the need for an apology! Eileen is just a stupid cheating slut!

      • MissTony

        I can’t stand her!

    • DEXTER

      LVP was not saying “tell me about your tawdry affair. When did the infidelity and destruction of two families start”. No. She said “you have such a great love story. You met your husband in set and had a screen kiss when you first met. So romantic. Did you know it was love with that first kiss?” It was Eileen who is so ashamed of her slutty home wrecking that she reacts like drunk Kim trying to fool people she is sober.

    LR is the one that is going to be hurt the most when she sees the real Eileen. Eileen wants to be queen and will never make it. She kisses Erika and Yolanda’s ass big time. She picked the wrong side. LOSER!!

    • chacha1

      Eileen’s obsession with Erika is very distrubing …..

  • Adam West

    Have never liked the manly Eileen , used to wonder if she was a he ? Brandi summed up Eileen very early on in the series !! Miss Brandi she would of wiped the floor with bitchy Eileen by now ,,Rinna is a silly fool for listening to the Mouth with a grudge !! One would think WHY does she go on and on about her AFFAIR we all know he and she cheated .. You will never be better or anywhere near as good as Lisa Vanderpump Eileen so just just drop the bullshit and back off ,,I will always be a loyal fan of Lis V ..

  • SurfDoggie

    I think you pretty much summed it all up.

    I find it odd that Eileen is so quick to demand that everyone cater to HER feelings (and listen to them endlessly), but she completely rejects the feelings of both Rinna and Vanderpump. Rinna can be easily manipulated, Vanderpump can’t. For the transgression of having her own thoughts and feelings, Eileen orchestrated a hardcore takedown.

    Eileen is boring and I hope she is gone next year.

    Rinna has a lot of potential and I hope she sticks around and fixes this. I think fans like her because she generally calls it like she sees it. Unfortunately, she backtracks A LOT. If she would just stick to her guns, focus on the Munchausen (which most folks agree is the case), and drop this ridiculous “he said she said”, she’d be a great addition.

    I even like Erika. Wrong team, but without Yolanda and Eileen I think she is an interesting person. She is strong enough to stand on her own — if only she will.

    • SassyMcAsspants

      I agree with ya, SurfDoggie. I would like to see Erika without her “connection” to Yonuts, for sure.

  • SurfDoggie

    Order in which I would like to see the Housewives gone next year:

    1. YOLANDA
    2. Eileen
    3. Kathryn (sorry, but she’s boring as hell, lives in San Diego, and pretends to have a personal jewelry concierge when she’s struggling to afford a kitchen redo)
    4. Erika (Pasadena)

    Keep:
    Rinna, Vanderpump, Kyle

    Bring on:

    David Foster’s daughters who are hilarious
    Nicole Richie
    Denise Richards
    Joanna Krupa
    Faye Resnick (yes, I know a lot of people hate her, but I find her intriguing)

    • SassyMcAsspants

      Oooohhh, I like your new line-up. If we were playing RHOBH fantasy football, I think your team would win, LMAO. I hate Resnick, definitely, so I am on the fence about her (plus that would make Kryle too happy for her own good), but the rest would be great.

    • debbie

      Rinna would be my first pick to go and then Eileen and then Erica

    • criley

      1.Yolanda, 2. Eileen, 3. Erika Bring on Davids ex. Linda Thompson, Denise Richards. On the fence with Rinna she is kind of a mess and I think may need mental help!

  • Rubyred4515

    Eileen accepted Lisa’s apology several times but then talks behind Lisa’s back and brings the same subject up again and again.what do you want Eileen? Lisa’s first born?

    • chacha1

      Eileen wants to beat that horse over and over even though that horse had been dead a long time …. she also needs to redirect her anger towards the one who is really pissing her off and that is Vinnie Van Nobody who I am sure has lost the house gambling

        I think Eileen was very envious of Rinna’s and LVP’s friendship and wanted it ended. Maybe Rinna will have an epiphany and realize it someday soon!

  • Susan Thorne Zavagli

    not one of them will ever take LVP down……

    • Martin

      Because LVP is the only classy lady. I’m sick of all the manipulation claims against her. She is witty and funny. She is remain the fan favorite

  • KKLS30

    Yulinda is the puppet master. She has been gunning for LVP for awhile. She is a shit stirrer and the pathetic little former mistress of Vince Van Patten is doing her bidding while she hides behind her faux illness. Apparently in an attempt to achieve the lowest body weight possible Rinna had her spine and brain removed hence the never-ending flip flopping.

    I refer you to one of my favorite Yulinda blogs of all times which she entitled “Why is Everyone Afraid of Lisa?”.It is my favorite because her Chronic Dumb Bitchitis is unintentionally center stage when she attempts to call out Ken and Lisa for lying about Ken’s birthday. Like all narcissists she creates a story in her head that Lisa threw a birthday party at her house for Ken and Mauricio on the date of David’s daughter’s small intimate guest- list wedding just so Lisa could have Yo somehow look bad. Yo thinks she is about to have her big “ah-ha” moment when she reveals the date of the wedding was July 20 but she is sure that Ken’s birthday is August 24th. Except it isn’t. It is July 22. Why does the dumbass think Ken’s birthday is August 24? Because like all paranoid lunatics she decides to google Kenn Todd birthday and sees August 24th but is so pleased with her find that she doesn’t see that it clearly refers to a retired British footballer named Ken Todd who was born in 1957. Now has Yo ever apologized for printing writing this blatant lie as a fact? No. Has she ever apologized for pretending Ken assaulted her? Nope. No one can convince me that Yo isn’t the puppet master with Eileen as the bitter puppet and that going after Lisa has been her angle for years. What Yo is saying now has NOTHING to do with the munchenhausenfrausenmickeymausen disease. Back when Yo wrote this BS Lisa hadn’t done a damn thing to her yet she was clearly obsessed. Here is the Lisa section of that blog from the Febuary 2014 blog.

    “Lisa has impeccable taste, so I enjoy watching her and Kevin plan an extraordinary setting — but the fact that it’s a joint birthday party for Ken and Mauricio leaves me more and more confused.

    All I heard for the past two years is how Kyle so deeply insulted her integrity and — like you all saw on the last reunion — Mauricio was a user (in her opinion) and only befriended people who could give him real estate deals. (Which I believe is part of his job and the way he provides for his family.) Nobody ever spoke of this after the reunion, and I know for a fact that even when we all got back together this subject was never discussed.

    Lisa always seemed to be a great friend to Brandi, but when things got tough and not so pretty, I did see her distance herself overnight without any explanation or acknowledgment. She clearly decided to reposition herself within the group and therefore bring Kyle back in.

    Kyle on the other hand always said that Lisa is like Bobby Fischer because she strategically manipulates every move. I wish she would have had the courage to use this perfect example to point that out to Lisa. Kyle should have drawn a line in the sand and demanded an apology for her husband and at least some sort of acknowledgement of what went down before accepting the invite for a joint birthday party.

    It is impossible to rebuild the foundation of a true friendship without that.

    Lisa is a beautiful, smart and witty lady, and I am not going to deny that I have always enjoyed her company. Somehow she intimidates the women in this group and they are therefore afraid to hold her accountable for her actions. I am having a hard time understanding why it’s so hard for Lisa to acknowledge her mistakes, because the truth is that we all make them everyday, including myself. When I forgot to put hearts on some of the namecards at my dinner party, I came around and acknowledged my rude mistake, even though I had not done it intentionally. Painting a heart on a little canvas for the three girls involved was my way of saying, “I am sorry, I screwed up!”

    As the quote goes, trust takes years to build, seconds to break and forever to repair; but to have your feelings validated and acknowledged is at least a healthy place to start to rebuild a true and honest friendship.

    David and I hosted his youngest daughter Jordan’s wedding at Mohamed’s house on July 20, 2013, which had of course been on the calendar for the past year. The bride and groom limited their guest list to those who have a personal relationship with them. I was surprised to see Lisa use the wedding as an excuse of why David and I were not going to be at her party — because I am pretty sure that Ken’s actual birthday is August 24, so she really could have planned it any other night of the week.”

    • chacha1

      she sure can throw it down on paper with her blindness and foggy brain, what an amazing woman she is … and only proves what a lying asshole she is

    • bellota

      well, obviously that’s just further proof of LVP’s extraordinary ability to manipulate – here, she has manipulated time and space to go back and change Ken’s birthday just so that Yonuts looks like a fool.

    • Chicco Beanz

      That has to be one of the best comments ever. Yo is really boring and miserable. So is Eileen. It’s disgusting how hypocritical they are and full of shit. Rinna is beyond a moron.

Get rid of Yoyo and Eileen and the show will change! It would be nice to see trashy Erika go too.. just don’t like the two personalities she portrays!

  • Mw

    If you don’t want to be called a homewrecker, then don’t be a homewrecker! ED has crossed a line that she can’t uncross. Rinna is a supreme dum-dum who lost a lot of my respect by going after LVP at the urging of ED. Has anybody asked, why are ED and LR so offended at what LVP did to Kyle if Kyle herself said she didn’t care? Same with YF going to lunch with BG and KR. If EG didn’t care, then Rinna has zero business even discussing it.

  • Susan

    Eileen Davidson has a severe God Complex. You and Rinna may think you won the battle, but YOU LOST THE WAR. Because No One CAN STAND YOU NOW.

    yeah Eileen is an ass. If she is so ashamed of her marriage, she should do something about it. LVP was actually saying it was all romantic, but her Eileen’s shame blinded her to that.
    Rinna is a flip flopper.

    • CarolinaGirl3

      She had no trouble spouting the same facts over dinner (complete with bonus added wine toss) last season, but suddenly gets the vapors when actually ASKED about it. Hey, Eileen – guess what mature adults do – they say at the outset “I’d rather not discuss this right now” rather than get upset 20 questions in and demand an apology. An apology for what? Why should LVP think you have a problem discussing it when you blabbed all about it last season?

    • debbie

      I agree with you.

    • BHFan

      How petty can a grown woman be? She didn’t care when Brandi threw a glass of wine in her face over the affair last season. However, when LVP asked about it, she flipped her lid, and brought in the ninny, LR. These two soapsters need to get off BH

  • Lindsey Mozzo

    The one and only reason I can’t get on board with Erika? She immediately and with no provocation, talked negatively about LVP. Clearly, it was directed by Yo. Otherwise, what the heck did LVP do to Erika so early on. I wish it would be addressed at the reunion but I’m sure it won’t be.

    • chacha1

      IKR and then Tommy Dead Salami insults LVP by calling her an alligator and LVP lets him get a pass for his senile comment …… Erika meets with Katherine and what does she do, she gossips about LVP, something Erika does not like …. she is nothing but a gossip who gossips and is spending way too much time with Yolanda and Brandi who is doing everything to take down LVP behind the scenes with lies

      • Lindsey Mozzo

        I think Erika has more than TWO personalities…

    Erika is one of THE phoniest and most hypocritical people on the show. She got upset because Rinna judged her, and owned it, but it was okay for her to judge and talk shit about LVP? At least LVP asked her questions to her face. Oh and the Kathertine thing? Don’t talk sh*t about people, especially to people you are getting to know, and then get upset if it’s repeated. She’s such a p*ssy. Then she’s always in everyone’s face pretending to be all above reproach. Bye Erika. You and your team need to go.

What about when she lied and would not confess right away to who told Yolanda about the kids being talked about and let Rinna take the fall for a couple of days. Her reasoning was she did not want to ruin her night. It is OK for her to mislead. Snake from the side is Erika

    • Jenpink

      I totally agree with you….Erika came on this show on a mission under Yolanda’s orders to help her bring down her number one nemeses, Lisa Vanderpump.

      gee, I guess you and I are watching different shows. I disagree with everything you just said, but oh well.

        Exactly Debbie ! I guess when article after article is written, they are all wrong!

      Wait, what??? I do not see what you are seeing at all. Eileen us a cheating slut and Rinna her stupid puppet. Both the soapies are just low class nothing’s that need to go. Rinna could have been loved however she hitched her wagon to that dumb evil slut Eileen who thinks she of all people – who slept with a married man, while married – is the morality meter for all?? Ugh! Can’t stand either of them! Lisa Vanderpump is an amazing gracious charming woman! The soapies are jealous as hell of her life!

  • Oh_no_they_didnt

    Your account of what happened accurately reflects what I saw, and thought about this season as well. Rinna must feel so stupid now that shes watched the show.

      I’m sure!

  • Blue, you’re my boy

    Good blog.

    Lisa Rinna is Eileen’s puppet. Erika is Yolande’s puppet. Kyle is LVP’s puppet. LVP is still my favourite though and will forever be. Successful stylish classy woman. Eileen dresses like a bag lady, Yolande likes to be a sick victim…both pathetic.

    LVP is my favorite by far , anyone that loves animals the way she does is alright by me .All of the rest are drama queens who spend wayyyyyyyy to much time worrying about their FEELINGS grow fucking up and move on you are like two year olds you are all pathetic get over yourselves.
