Eileen Davidson & Lisa Rinna: From Fan Favorites to Most Hated — Read Their Tragic Decline!

Posted on Apr 4 2016 - 12:51pm by BeachSpin

1203-rinna_davidson

It seems like yesterday, when Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans were cheering cast additions, Eileen Davidson, and Lisa Rinna. Fans were stomping to have the polluted Brandi Glanville tossed out on her inflated cheeks, and were hoping that Davidson and Rinna would become Bravo lifers. I was one such fan, and found the duo the most refreshing Bravo  additions in years. Much has changed—and while the absence of Brandi is indeed a huge plus, fan opinion has shifted dramatically, when it comes to the two soap sisters. What happened? 

Eileen Davidson slipped onto the Bravo scene and added a classy, TV veteran edge, to the franchise. Her long career as a soap opera personality, was a fun contrast to her new gig as a “reality” star. She had a great snooty edge about her, an eccentric home landscape, and despite a tarnished beginning, a seemingly successful marriage. She made Guttermouth  Glanville, appear even trashier.

Eileen added an uppity touch to a show that desperately needed a classing up, since Brandi’s arrival. Eileen brushed off petty drama with ease, even taking a glass of wine in the face with grace. She looked at unfolding conflicts with a mature and reasonable mindset, and offered honest commentary. Her style was lovely and classic, and her manner approachable, but star-like. I loved it when she gasped—“How DARE you?”—the superior indignation was excellent.

Lisa Rinna busted onto the scene, all hair, lips, and attitude. Lisa is a worker, and proudly proclaims herself a “hustler.” Money MATTERS—and Lisa isn’t too cool to say it. She is married to a late 80’s TV cutie, and has two pretty teen daughters. She blurts too much, and laughingly confessed the habit as a shortcoming. Lisa snarked and cursed, but did it alongside sincere, personal insight. She preached owning your sh*t, and backed up her words with action. She was animated, without crossing over into the mega-obnoxious, and genuinely seemed to care about her co-stars, and her fans.

She busted the Kim Richards’ addiction coverup wide open—forcing the show to finally deal with an off the rails junkie. She was compassionate to an enabling sister, without glossing over the hard truth, vehemently against contributing to the ongoing charade. Lisa also delivered two of the most epic scenes of the season—the crazy car ride in junkie hell, and the infamous glass smash. She lit up Bravo’s Beverly Hills—even while boasting through giggles, about hustling adult diapers.

Fast forward one season. Eileen has morphed into a needy bore, who went from delightfully uppity to annoying, in lightening speed. She has gone from a confident eyebrow-raiser, to a frantic pot-stirrer, who seems desperate to prove points, that don’t interest viewers. Eileen appears to have forgotten   that she is playing herself — not working to snag another Emmy. She claims horror at the mention of a taboo topic — yet shoves the subject into the spotlight, over and over. Co-stars land on Eileen’s hit-list, if they don’t behave the way she deems appropriate, or if they don’t direct and disclose  opinions, that she decides are crucial. Her manipulation isn’t even interesting, just repetitive and transparent.

Rinna hasn’t changed much, but unfortunately hitched her wagon to the most grating cast member of the season — her sounding board and opinion mentor, Eileen. Rinna was navigating  her second season like a pro, but her decision to align with Davidson against Lisa Vanderpump, has been a crushing mistake. Gone is the independent thinker, who is willing to stand alone, and trust her gut. Rinna now stands as a self-proclaimed people pleaser, who sways in the wind. She instinctively and independently nailed Yolanda Foster, for taking viewers for a Lyme-ride — only to wimp out, and allow herself to be dragged off-topic. She pants for approval and direction from her Emmy-idol, a role model who worships a rookie gold digger, and glares at a veteran favorite.  Lisa was a couple of episodes away, from exiting as a truth-seeking MVP — but she blew it.

I was one of the biggest cheerleaders for this pair. I still have hope for Rinna — but I’m not so sure about Eileen. Fans have overwhelmed both stars with criticism, and Davidson boasts recent social media blocking sprees. These stars have plummeted like Lymes thrown off the Burj Khalifa, and it is a darned shame.

  • Bad Barbie

    People stan so hard for Vanderpump… lol These two have their days and make sense in a lot of what they have said and done but of course, you don’t kiss royalass…

    • Wimbledonwoman

      I agree, they did make sense a day kyle agreed but for so easy reason no one dares to criticise lvp

      • Dancer kc

        What?????

        • Wimbledonwoman

          Fuck knows what I was trying to type even i can’t understand it. I have changed my ipad and it has predictive text . I think I need to turn it off. Sorry about that

          • debbie

            I think they are counting on this dying down and people forgetting about what they’ve done. (Eileen and rinna that is)

  • sideof Sour Cream

    The only member of this current cast I just can’t stand is Yolanda. The rest of them are wonderful in comparison. 🙂

    • JustNotCrazyAboutBitches

      I don’t mind Yo’ … I love all the BH ladies!~♥

      • sideof Sour Cream

        I have anger pulsing through my veins for that bitch. LOL. It’s actually painful for me to watch her. Seriously, I need to be a little drunk at this point not to ff through her scenes.
        Hate-watch, it’s a real thing! hahaha!

        • Jennymckitty

          She makes my head feel like it could explode as well.

        • JustNotCrazyAboutBitches

          But she’s sick … poor thing isn’t responsible for her actions.

          • sideof Sour Cream

            lol!

          • JustNotCrazyAboutBitches

            🙂

      • Lila

        I get the role playing when it’s fun and light. But attacking one’s integrity , is going too far. Or is integrity just tossed out the window once you sign that contract? And can you Ever get it back? Smh

        • JustNotCrazyAboutBitches

          Yes, it is indeed out the window.

    • chacha1

      Yolanda is trash with cash and nothing will ever change that

  • JustNotCrazyAboutBitches

    How dare anyone call out Vandercunt for her bitchery and now they’re ‘hated’ LoL! Not by me they ain’t. In fact, they scored brownie points with me.

    • Wimbledonwoman

      And me …. I am astounded that people don’t see through the lizard pump . She reminds me of moan collin’s character on dynasty (Alexis). Character as well as style.

      Below is what I reckon she would look like without the plastic surgery .

      • nadalotta

        That looks like Priscilla Presley

      • JustNotCrazyAboutBitches

        But like who didn’t love Alexis Carrington Colby Dexter, Rowan!

        • Wimbledonwoman

          Yes absolutely, love how you remember all the surnames , shit that is good … . I must have stopped watching by Rowan …. Was Dexter the real handsome young fella ?

          • JustNotCrazyAboutBitches

            Dex Dexter was very hunky actor Michael Nader who was on for 7 or 8 seasons. They really fought (and loved) hard. Then there was that young good looking British guy who saved her life when her car went over the bridge who she married, but he then turned nutty and tried to kill her.

          • Wimbledonwoman

            Jeez you know your stuff ms jncab. I am impressed . X. I think I may have to,check out YouTube to refresh my memory 🙃😳

      • madeleine

        That neck is the only “natural” in that pix. The face is full of plastic…

        • Wimbledonwoman

          The neck is scary isn’t it

      • Dancer kc

        God Damn! That serious scared me!

  • chacha1

    Back Stabbers bashing on Back Stabbers….. Eileen and Rinna should win the Olympic Gold for Fence Jumping ….. and Eileen tone it down, we get it, you love love love Erika until you look like an ahole going on and on about her … Rinna don’t ever have your ass waxed on TV again, you are such a low life …..

    • ScrappieONE

      OMG the waxing screen was beyond gross. Thanks for reminding me of it Chacha…barf

      • Lila

        Lol I knooow😱 Eww

      • nadalotta

        ScrappieONE (love the name!), I couldn’t figure out how LR was getting a Brazilian in that position. I had no idea she was getting waxed somewhere else. I guess HarryHamlin likes her to be smooth everywhere. After all, it’s HarryHamlin’s world and LisaR just lives in it.

        HarryHamlin and Lisa have been married many years – I wonder why she calls him that? Is it to remind people she “got” someone famous? (He was a babe but that was the mid 1980s? Dang, I’m old!).
        I guess I’m surprised Lisa didn’t change her name after her marriage to Lisa Rinna-Hamlin. Hamlin isn’t that usual a name and Lisa could bring up her marriage to HarryHamlin if someone asked about the Hamlin part.

        • Wimbledonwoman

          Nadoletta that is a good pointime, she should just refer to him as harry but then we could forget. Just wondering why, given his surname is so important to her , she didn’t become liza hamlin on marriage.

    • nadalotta

      Funny you mentioned Eileen’s “love love love” for Erika.
      Last season, Eileen complained about Brandi liking her so much and how it made her (Eileen) so uncomfortable. Now she’s doing it to Erika but I guess it’s okay, right?

    • esther medina dorado

      Not to mention she strapped on a dildo and did her husband to the public..sheeesh.. she has no boundries.

      • Wimbledonwoman

        Is that really true, please it can’t be? I can imagine Lisa strapping a dildo onto a roll of toilet paper if the shilling fee was high enough, but up harry’s man bottom , please no

        • esther medina dorado

          She said it on live radio when asked to be guest remember? It came out of the horses mouth.

    • debbie

      Eileen is kissing up to Erika so bad that its sickening. I read that she gave her a part in her soap opera.. Oh brother.

  • LuxLuxLux

    Would never have imagined Eileen turning into such a cray cray bitch!

  • Jennymckitty

    Last season Eileen was OK. She expressed very few opinions on anything and was rarely open about anything personal. She wasn’t very interesting but she wasn’t bad. She was beige. Now she really seems to be upping her involvement in the drama. She is stirring the pot a whole lot more than last season. She randomly shares more personal stories. Why is it I still find her kinda boring and still beige?

  • RonnieRIB

    That’s what she gets…..she wanted attention….bend ovah bish

    As Ice Cube would say No vasaline!

  • Elizabeth Fisher

    Beach Spin nails it AGAIN!

  • Lila

    I think Eileen should have just zipped it if she couldn’t come up with a storyline of her own. She talks so much to Rinna about confronting people -practice what you preach. She took all of Brandi’s BS, insults, wine in the face ,her house decor. etc. and did nothing.

    • Elizabeth Fisher

      Exaaaaaaaaaactly!

    • Jason Forrister

      But even Brandi knew she was wrong and said she was sorry. LVP can never give a real apology and that is bothersome.

      • Lila

        Maybe Brandi’s a better actress with apologies than LVP. As for LVP, you’re right. She can never give a real apology; and it shows. The Ego gets in the way.

        • debbie

          I’m not so sure its her ego.. I have heard her apologize on her other show.. But I don’t think she’s willing to apologize if she believes she’s not in the wrong. She’s trying not to be bullied into apologizing for something she doesn’t think is wrong.

          • Lila

            True. That’s what Eileen is doing. At this point I even forgot exactly what Eileen wanted. If she was embarrassed by the affair question she should have told LVP right then. If LVP persisted Then I could understand Eileen wanting an apology. This whole thing is exhausting.

    • debbie

      Yes that’s right, she did nothing!!

  • bellota

    👏👏👏👏👏

  • bellota

    Also, I don’t remember Eileen’s style being so horrid last season. Okay, her house, yes. It was/is dated, but I’m talking about her clothing choices. I mean…that BBQ “dress,” those overalls and hat? What is going on with all that?

    • chacha1

      she had to slop the pigs before Vinnie would let her go to Dubai

      • TeaLuvR

        😂😂😂

  • Elizabeth Fisher

    After the way Pinky called out production about not showing why she missed Munchies’ Lyme Gala in NYC because she had to go to London to renew her passport for the Dubai trip, it really makes me wonder whether or not she will come back after this season. She was pissed that it wasn’t explained why she didn’t go to NYC.

    • nadalotta

      Do we know Lisa V. called out production, etc.? I remember her mentioning (not on the same segment) that she had to renew her passport. I’m trying to remember what those who attended were told why Lisa V. didn’t attend or if it was, “Lisa didn’t want to come” which is something completely different.

      • Elizabeth Fisher

        She called them out on Twitter

        • nadalotta

          I miss so much on Twitter! Seems as though I’m never on it when the good stuff happens.

          • Elizabeth Fisher

            I’m not on Twitter, but I like to go read Twitter pages. Watching Rinna and Eileen go off-the-rails has been a thing of beauty. They are both becoming unhinged.

          • Nadalotta

            Thank you – I’m going to find Twitter pages and check it out.

      • missy mykr

        OMG…SIGH….Does your psych nurse know that you’ve stolen her computer?

    • debbie

      I was thinking the same thing.. Its pretty nervy to call out your bosses. And after all the bullying she’s had to endure, I wouldn’t be surprised if she quit this show.. Of course I hope not!! And if she does, it will give all those other bitches a thrill to think maybe they ran her off..

  • Great blog, Beach! I think you articulated my thoughts precisely about Eileen and Rinna. I use to love them both…not anymore. They’re completely different women from their rookie season.

    • girlie1

      I always like the wives more their first season before they are shaped into a character for the viewers. I liked Brandi and Yo their first seasons too.

  • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

    I never liked Rinna. She was always phony obnoxious weak & repetitive. So desperate to hit some mark & milk it to death. What did Harry do? Important matters like she is the queen of cursing & flipping people off…at 52 years old. Blah blah blah.

    She was forever telling anyone & everyone that’s she’s nice nice nice…such a good person coming from a good place.

    It’s perfectly fine to push but at the very least be prepared take a shot & handle it accordingly. Standing up at a table & shattering a glass shows that she’s as thirsty & out-of-control as the other trashy phony flake that threw the statement out there. Then… Rinna proceeds to run outside for compassionate hugs & paces her hotel room like the men in white coats were on their way. Phony victim.

    Instead of being a grown woman & accepting her lack of self-control at the reunion…she three out nonsense about a childhood where she was told not to express her feelings & her elderly parents didn’t deserve being mentioned.

    Off-season there was the Halloween Swastika assholery & for April Fools Day she decided to post a picture of her pretending to be bald. After 2000+ comments on her IG page & a while bunch of heat…she started telling posters do fuck off…get off her page & donate their time to charity…before deleting the picture.

    Rinna is a crazy nasty weak phony full of trashy TMI. There’s a reason she’s never been able to hold an acting job for more than a year or so.

    • You NAILED it, Snarky.

      • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

        Thank you Doc! 😄

    • chacha1

      she also threatened Kim Richards and we all heard it at the reunion ….. if that bitch ever said to me in a voice mail that she was going to F*** me up I would have made a police report out and if she ever did that again then I would press charges .. Rinna is very lucky to never cross my path

      • nadalotta

        At the time, I thought Kim was making a big deal out of it – that, of course, Lisa would never be violent. Now – I don’t know.

      • Dancer kc

        Dats right! Don’t be messin with ChaCha!

    • Babson_Chick

      I agree and am so tired of her nasty mouth – it’s gets old

    • Wimbledonwoman

      Great insightful post. I thought she was a massive TV star , how wrong .

      I also get the feeling she still can’t quite believe she is married to ‘haaarrryy haaaaamlin’, well neither can most of us I imagine.,

      I hate the tough girl routine and as for the wig and wearing bandana’s on gym day when wig left at home …. I wonder if she names them like Adele did when she had the big hair ..
      If harry was so devoted he would adopt melissa gorga”s approach and wear caps / bandanas in support and to detract attention

      She looks so skinny on telly I cannot imagine how emaciated she must appear in real life

      • nadalotta

        I swear, I had NO idea she wore wigs. NONE. I knew she had the same hairstyle but that’s it.

      • SassyMcAsspants

        One of the side effects of an eating disorder is hair loss. Just putting that out there.

        • Wimbledonwoman

          Omg , I never thought of that x

      • esther medina dorado

        She should use her spoons to stir her food but instead she uses her spoons to stir up shit

    • nadalotta

      And who calls their husband by their first/last name? “Harry Hamlin, come over here and give me a kiss”, “Oh, I had lunch with Harry Hamlin today”, etc. Huh?

      I don’t remember Lisa V. going off about her childhood – I may have been out of the room – but I have a feeling there’s been more than one sad childhood on those 2 couches. Wahhh, my parents wouldn’t let me express myself – boy, if that doesn’t sound like a California “problem”, I don’t know what does. (And I grew up near Berkeley!) It’s like, “My feelings have a right to be validated!”

      Both of the above may be true but it’s not an excuse to be a jerk to other people. It’s plainly a plea for sympathy. Didn’t work for me.

  • Darris

    I still love Eileen and I never like or disliked Rinna. Eileen also seems to have gained fans from the Brandi, Yolanda and Kim bucket…Brandi even tweeted Eileen saying she thought she was cool now and they should go get their hair done together if I’m not mistaken. I about had to Eileen because I thought she was going to reply back and say I would love to. If it’s one thing I can’t stand it’s opportune times friendships and that’s exactly what Brandinas aiming for with tweeting Eileen that. I do hope next season if she returns we get a little more out of Eileen owns personal life/business etc etc.

    • SilverHair

      I was hoping more from Eileen, she showed us a little veggie garden. I thought Okay, maybe she will spread organic gardening with her family. But, not much on family/home life. Just whine, whine, whine and manipulate her BFF LisaR. I won’t mind LisaR next year. I just won’t trust anything out of her mouth anymore.

      • sideof Sour Cream

        I loved that garden too.

  • Vogue

    I still like them both, specially Rianna, they need something to talk about and Rianna always comes with the best, last year she was like let’s all focus on lying Kim and stop pretending she is sober and now she brought up Yolanda and her nonsense. I think people should stop talking these silly dramas serious. What is serious IMP is Yolanda miss lieding people and using sociale media wrongfully for her hidden agenda. What is serious is Apollo being a fraud and Todd and Kandi supporting him by hiding the stolen things for him. What is ridiculous is Thresa coming on tv playing victim and act like an idiot after being in jail and been declared guilty. Lisa and Eileen are harmless with some silly drama. I’m still a fan and wish people would stop criticizing them to the point they decide to leave the show. I don’t mind if Yolanda got all the nasty comment to the point she decide get lost but Lisa and Eileen are fine in my book.

    • JerseyCountess

      Fine in my book, too.

    • bellota

      Put like that and compared to those people, I totally agree. I don’t necessarily want them off or think they deserve to be. However, I’m SO BORED of Eileen and her driving to death this whole affair and squeezing the umpteenth apology out of LVP bullsh!t. It is so boring!! Someone needs to get her to freaking let it go!

      • Dancer kc

        I’m all for them kicking rocks!

    • ImFlying

      MTE.

    • debbie

      Don’t worry about them leaving this show, they love the money.. They could care less what we say about them as long as Bravo pays well.. Eileen makes more than any of them make, so she’s not going to quit.. If I were LVP I would definitely quit.. She doesn’t need the money and is probably getting tired of the gangups on her.

  • Ravello

    Once again Beach Spin speaks for me in most articulate fashion.
    I’m guessing Bravo old ED to step up the drama, or else. She must be desperate for that paycheck to attack LVP in this most irritating fashion.

  • girlie1

    Beach Spin nailed it. These women started out with so much promise, just like Yo and her lemon grove. I wish Rinna would have just stuck with outing Yolanda and not got involved with yet another plot to try and make LVP look like a terrible person. I swear LVP is bulletproof, everyone keeps taking shots, but nothing ever hits her.

    • Elizabeth Fisher

      It sounds like Pinky shows an email at the reunion that proves it was all Rinna.

      • samantha

        Let’s hope.

      • Dancer kc

        Really? Please tell us more!

      • debbie

        Really? Oh I would hope she does that at the reunion. I’m so tired of Rinna and her big mouth. She’s vicious, she really is vicious…And I’m tired of her and Manipuleen claiming they come from a good place.. OMG what a crock!! Talk about liars? Telling LVP that they aren’t ganging up on her when that’s exactly what they were doing!!! And lying straight to our faces about it.

      • debbie

        I can only hope Pinky shows an email that proves is was Rinna!! I’m afraid to watch the reunion because the preview was so awful.

      • debbie

        I so hope that’s true and Pinky proves Rinna’s a liar herself!!!! That will take down crazy Eileen also. Wouldn’t it be good DRAMA if both rinna and Eileen got up and walked off the set, never to be seen or heard from again!!

    • UndergroundExpress

      Sia’s Titanium should be LVP theme song.

  • samantha

    Excellent assessment. Agree 100%, Rinna & Davidson are now insufferable.

  • belleyd

    I have no problem w/Rinna..she spoke the truth about Yolo & the other women are too afraid of fan backlash (I don’t know why..it is so obvious YOLO is lying) and are playing dumb. And though LVP is fun to watch w.her over the top wealth, I have no doubt at this point she is behind the major pot stirring & is excellent at making other look foolish. She started her career as an actress too..the british accent really helps too..that accent couldn’t lie!!

  • JustSayin

    Don’t these bitches know Lisa Vanderpump is like Teflon? Shit just don’t stick to her.

    • RRRobin

      Furthermore, the two commandos are so f’g annoying/boring/repetitive I could throw something through my tv screen!
      Take their whiney/whyny asses off the show — STAT!

  • chacha1

    and the eye of the storm is Yolanda who has been relentless in her quest to prove she has Lymes and 2 foot worms falling out of her ass with her sick selfies for over a year….. then the pompous bitch does her talking head scolding everyone …… she is not only a fake gold digger she is a nasty mean person and has caused all this dissention

  • Perturbed

    Brava, Beach! You always capture exactly what I am thinking, and articulate this madness with such entertaining prose. I don’t know how you do it!

  • Mary R

    Another drop the mic blog from Beach Spin!!! I agree 100%!!

  • Dottie WhiteTrashGal

    BOOM.

  • pegs

    This was a delightful and insightful read on this duo.

    • Dancer kc

      I agree! Well done,Beachspin, well done!

  • BeachSpin

    THANKS for reading everyone–and for all of the kind words! Loved blasting these two! 😎

    • teri keller

      I love ur snarkiness ritght up there with my Queen LVP

    • debbie

      Then keep up the good work.. Tomorrow night we have to sit through another gangup on LVP and sit through more talk about the same old tired subjects. I feel like we are drowning in venom from rinna and manipuleen with eye rolls, dirty looks and all knowing looks from queenie Erica who shoots from the side without getting her hands dirty.. Isn’t it funny how the very thing they accuse LVP of, they are doing themselves.

  • Wimbledonwoman

    well as a brit I am delighted she got called out . I almost thought she was going to try and squeeze a tear out. She maybe extremely wealthy but that doesn’t make me love her and be blind to her scheming and manipulation. Maybe I should adopt a different attitude and just enjoy her for what she is . She is clearly basing her persona and style on joan Collins’ character in dynasty.

    She also reminds me of Kate o’mara (pic below) who used to play the same type of roles on UK TV dramas years ago, I also reckon ms vp would look eerily like ms o’mara if it weren’t for the botox. .

    I can’t abide liza rhinna but I am OK about Eileen.

    So maybe we have to agree to disagree and i just ask that the staunch liza vp fans respect that I am entitled to express a different opinion xx

    Oh BTW dunagrees should be hitting your high streets v soon. In london last summer the hipsters were wearing them, Shoreditch was awash with them. But I saw top shop on Oxford Street had wracks of them in last week some think they are about to filter down to the masses.

    See Rory feek is a style guru as well as a brilliant country song writer / singer xx

  • nadalotta

    I completely agree – thank you! Lisa R. should have kept her big mouth and little brain out of Yolanda’s business. It was none of her business, period. And since Yolanda has so many haters, I’ll add Lisa R. shouldn’t have KEPT talking about it. And if other haters here want to blame Lisa V., then Lisa R. should have still shut up instead of bringing it up over and over.

    As for Eileen, she became a mind-reader because when Lisa V apologized (at least 3x), Eileen “knew” Lisa V. wasn’t being serious and/or respectful. Lisa V. – I give you credit for not speaking up and telling Eileen to put the apology up her arse.

    • Jason Forrister

      Are you kidding me…one apology with a giggle, the other one she clearly even said she did not mean it. You are full of it.

      • debbie

        Her giggle was from being uncomfortable, not from being hateful.

        • jean brayton

          i agree,or just couldn’t believe eileen was really upset. after all eileen brought it up last year.

      • Kym Glaspey

        Do you even WATCH the show??? She actually apologized FOUR TIMES!! And the second and third time, ED said it was over and done with … ONLY TO BRING IT UP AGAIN at the first possible moment!!!!! She simply wanted a juicier storyline this season as she was so boring last year!

        Oh please! Go away now ok? You are not a woman and REAL woman do not apologize because they are bagged into it!

  • esther medina dorado

    I agree with those two being disliked ..I liked them when they first came on the show and now i cant even stand to hear their voices…ugh, get rid of them two…

    • Patty Hoch

      I didn’t like either Eileen or Rinna from the start. Eileen doesn’t like LVP because she asked her when the AFFAIR started w/her & her 3rd husband, Vinny.

      • esther medina dorado

        Patty Hoch that is so true. Eileen started to dislike LVP because of her questions and SHE manipulated the puppet Lisa R to do the talking for her ..UGH to both of them

        • jean brayton

          just what she accused lvp of doing.

          • Marly

            I doubt either gets asked back.

  • Miss SuzyQ

    Here’s the rub, IMO. The issue I take with Eileen is that every single thing LVP does is met with histrionics. Yes, the viewers get she doesn’t like LVP however the very reason she cites for not liking her is precisely what Eileen does to Rinna. Eileen is not interesting and is so uber sensitive that she boasts of blocking people…
    Season 1 – new HW get a pass
    Season 2 – WTF happened to Eileen? C’mon Eileen Rinna, we all knew she was a bit of a whack job
    Menopause has not been kind to Eileen or Yolanda

  • SassyMcAsspants

    I read this on the way home last night …

    I just have to say, I think this is a great article, Beach. Well-thought and laid out fantastically. 🙂 Thanks!

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    Eileen always wants to discuss the elephant in the room, even if there isn’t one. Rinna is a flip flopper. She agrees with whomever she is with at the time.
    This whole argument about what LVP said was off camera. How many episodes are we supposed to hear about it?!? Drop that subject & stop spending so much time discussing Yolanda. Enough already.

    • Patty Hoch

      If Yolanda doesn’t have lymes disease, why did she speak at the fundraiser in NYC and receive an award as well?

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        I never doubted that Yo is sick. Any of my posts will prove that. I got read to filth for even suggesting that there was something wrong with her. So you are preaching to the choir one this one.

      • Marly

        It wasn’t a ‘real’ award! It was a fake foundation set up for storyline purpose for her only. Look it up.

  • SurfDoggie

    I wish last year’s Rinna would have shown up this year to call Yo onto the carpet. She would have been a damn hero.

    • Dancer kc

      Yes!

  • SurfDoggie

    I predict Yo and Kathryn will be gone next year. Fingers crossed they will take Eileen with them. I am good with everyone else.

    • Kathyrn was going to go I’m sure but LVP has a lot of pull because of her huge fanbase so she will probably fight for Kathryn since she will want an ally next season. Despite LVP’s bad behavious such as trying to blame the production company for throwing her under the bus I don’t think Bravo wants to let her go as she’s not only a fan fave on RHOBH but also has another one of the network’s biggest shows, Vanderpump Rules

      • Marly

        So true! I bet they open up the checkbook to keep her. I would like to see Rinna and Eileen gone! I think Yolanda is not in the right frame of mind and needs to go for her own well being, plus she hid a lot. Erika could be fun if she was not so clearly making assumptions on things she’s so wrong about. But no LVP? No show.

    • Patty Hoch

      Eileen has worn out her welcome. She did have an affair while she was married to hubby #2 and needs to face the fact that she is a home wrecker. It is what it is.

      • Jason Forrister

        Right because 15 years later she needs to deal with it with LVP??? Im certain that she probably has dealt with it already and I bet the exes have to and maybe the exes would prefer it not being brought up on television by a nosey british hag?

        • jean brayton

          she brought it up herself

        • Marly

          Ok, first off your colorful avatar says a lot, you are a man ? Hmmm. Interesting. I’ve never known of a man watching this? No insult intended just odd.

          • grageo

            You’ve “never known of a man watching,” so that means men don’t watch? Sorry, but that’s a truly ridiculous comment. Of course there are men who watch. At BTW, the “colorful avatar” means he’s either LGBT or supportive of them. I assume you knew that, so I’m wondering if you’re a bigot.

    • debbie

      I hope Kathryn stays on LVP’s side

  • Lindsey Mozzo

    Finally, an article I whole heartedly agree with on RHOBH!! I do want to reiterate, STILL very happy Brandy was let go. All this said, I could take it or leave it with Erika. Not really on board yet but I’d give her another season without Yo pulling her strings.

  • Vicky8675309

    great write up!

    • Dancer kc

      I agree! This was the best piece on the whole incident I’ve read yet! It stated exactly how I was feeling ! Well done!

      • WikiView

        it has been the weirdest morph this season. I like Lisa Rinna too. Same with Eileen – but it got old so quickly with this “storyline” It was so petty & painful.
        You are right. The Real formula is hard work to watch now. Over it.

  • Auntie Socialite

    Don’t you think they get prodded by Bravo to be shit-stirrers, though? I think they are just following the (un)script. I am seriously getting tired of the Real formula. It would be more interesting to just let the ladies do what they want.

    • Oh_no_they_didnt

      I agree with you. The manufactured drama is obvious and tiresome.

  • God there is such a vendetta from LVP and all her fans now to take down Eileen and Lisa Rinna, basically anybody who dares to go against LVP. And then people wonder why Kyle is so terrified to go against LVP. This is what happens to anybody that dares to go against the fan favourite, they get ripped apart mercilessly by the blogs and fans. I feel for Eileen and Rinna right now and I hope they don’t let the backlash bring them down too much. It’s hilarious that LVP and her fans attack everybody over the years from Yolanda, Brandi, Eileen, Lisa Rinna for ‘ganging up’ or trying to ‘take down’ LVP, but then they do the exact same to anybody who doesn’t have their tongue up LVP’s ass.

    • There is nothing wrong with going against any cast member that is obviously doing horrible things we can bear witness too. This she made me do it off camera crap when we are watching them change their story line from one episode to the next is the reason fans of the show support LVP. I am here watching the show year after year and they still have not caught her doing this master mind moves they tell us happened off camera yet? Oh please. LVP stands by one story and doesn’t change it to fit the SL so she seems more genuine than all of the others combined. She lives her life day to day and they come up with stories that can air for the show. You never see LVP attack anyone whereas we have seen each one of them attack her and each other so it’s hard to be on board with this off camera SL.

      • They haven’t changed their story lol. And yes LVP is very smart, she “engages from the side” as Erika said. She does her dirty work off camera, then saves the nasty insults for her blogs and confessionals.

        • Patty Hoch

          No doubt many of the issues “off camera” are those Bravo has chosen to have the players discuss & let the audience decide whether they are true or not.

        • debbie

          No, that’s not how I see it.. While LVP is saying nice things about Erica and her husband Tom, Erica is saying rotton things about LVP… Who’s the one engaging from the side? ERICA. She’s the one who’s the sniper and doesn’t want to get her hands dirty. Kathryn snitched on her for whatever reason, and LVP was confused by it. What had she ever done wrong to Erica to cause her to gossip about LVP like that? And watch Erica’s face, all the dirty looks thrown at LVP… For what reason? Erica seemed to come onto this show with the attitude already in place towards LVP.. A perfect case of the pot calling the kettle black.

          • jean brayton

            i think the attitude comes from yolanda.

          • Justice

            they planned to make Yolanda and Ericka friends they didnt even know each other before the show….UGH!

        • debbie

          Her blog is the only way she can speak because during the show, they refuse to allow her to get a full sentence out of her mouth!! Street fighters they are..

          • Marly

            They are plain rude and low rent!

        • Marly

          Actually you are wrong, Rinna, Eileen both change things. It’s clear to many viewers they ‘plan and plot’. Interesting note from the reunion however, was when Yolanda was talking of David? She turned to LVP for coberation and not Erika. LVP had her back right there.

      • esther medina dorado

        exactly!!!!

      • Justice

        EXACTLY well said dear!!! 🙂

    • esther medina dorado

      Because LVP didn’t do what they say..what happened is they misconstrue things, over think things and then say LVP said this or that..when she did not. They love to blame LVP
      , thinking of her as “Queen Bee”..well LVP never acted like she was queen anything but they think it

      • Jason Forrister

        Yeah she did…but it would not matter. LVP fans worship her not matter what and only want women who worship her as well on the show. When your bff even says you said something then yeah you did.

        • debbie

          I have not seen one cast member act like they worship LVP

          • Justice

            they all have treated her like shit over and over..LVP cant catch a break …Kyle was always jealous bc she expected to be the star of the show….but she’s kinda hoping they taker her down…they better hope LVP don’t leave bc the minute she does I’m DONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE watching this show…!!!! In this day and age there are tons of REALLY GOOD SHOWS on tv so I need to make more space for doing other things then watching this stuff…so get rid of LVP and I’m done with this show….keep bullying her every season as they did last season I’m done watching too!!! Enough is Enough!

        • Marly

          Wait, what? That doesn’t make sense??? What are you trying to say?

        • Are you saying you have never come across best friends who accused you of something you did not do? Plus Kyle is far from a BFF. All season long she tried to turn the focus on LVP like the rest of them but LR’s last blog revealed that Kyle was the first person she talked to about the “M” word over dinner and LVP was not a part of that conversation till Kyle told her. Kyle in her last blog also reveled that she had called Rinna after the on air reveal of the “M” word to talk to her about LVP trying to drag her into the “M” word. So Kyle was having all kinds of conversation about LVP with everyone while pretending to forgive her for something she KNoWS she did not say in order to change the focus of who had been in the mud with Rinna in ugly texts and dinners.

      • Marly

        Perfect example: LVP said she SELDOM spoke with Rinna in the phone and Rinna right away pulled out phone records, and says ‘you say you never call’? That is NOT at all what LVP said! Even her husband is saying Lisa R misquoted!!!

    • debbie

      Nowdays we teach our children that bullying is not acceptable, but every Tuesday night we watch this show and see two adult women bully a cast member. Its a gangup on LVP and we don’t like seeing it. I for one want to jump in and protect the lady.. Notice how they out-talk her, cuss, yell, etc…Even Kyle who supposedly loves LVP out talks her, not letting her get a word in edgewise most of the time. LVP doesn’t raise her voice, doesn’t swear, doesn’t yell and wave her arms, doesn’t jump off the couch, etc. She actually sits there and listens to what the other person is saying.. She’s no match for these street fighters and the viewers get uncomfortable watching this.. I was so happy to read her blog and see that she’s telling her feelings about the trip from hell, and she finally hits Eileen below the belt and takes Rinna down with her.. I say good for LVP! Its about time she fought back and theres no turning back now.. How can these women ever work together again? Any trust they had is gone forever!! I wonder who will stay and who will chose to go or kicked kicked off??????

      • Oh_no_they_didnt

        I agree 100%. Ever notice how bullies never think they’re bullies? Interesting.

    • Marly

      Did it ever occur to you that the viewers feel a strong connection and admiration for Lisa? Based on her kindness, her wit? Her charm? Her elegance? Maybe the viewers are seeing the Eileens and Rinnas for the losers and boring nothings they are? Eileen is with out a doubt the most vile spiteful bitter nag of a woman and a cheating tramp to boot! She is boring. Rinna is an idiot and maybe we all just like Lisa because she is immensely likeable and the others are so jealous of her they NEED to hitch themselves to her in one form or another. You don’t think we see that? You think we all can’t see how crappy and tacky some of the others are? Yes we do and when our favorite is getting bashed by liars, sluts, drunks what ever? We step up and defend with as much vengeance as say Eileen dished out??? I don’t feel bad one bit if she gets fired, if Rinna gets fired, their bullish, manipulative BS has ruined a whole season on a show neither are classy enough to be on anyway. Just sayen.

      • Justice

        Besides LISA LOOKS LIKE BEVERLY HILLS the others look cheap poor bad tastes and over the top but still broke down looking..UGH I can’t stand these ladies I dont really care if she said it or not it should never have dragged on the whole season that’s what make its not fun to watch anymore to bully that woman like they did talk over her and down to her …..they are hungry for camera time they drained this whole season and ruined every trip I can’t watch it anymore if this continues …I dont tune into this housewife show for drama I tune in bc I was escape my favorite Atlanta Housewife to watch a little bit of elegance and richness…..white old ladies fighting over what plate to use that over the top stuff with class….but they are HORRIBLE these 2 are just as bad as Brandi…i’m sick of them they need to go period….!!!

    • Dayle Hudson

      Can you be mofe gross. Yuk

  • KingKing

    I love, love , love Lisa Rinna! I have a girl crush on Erica~ I like the way she talks, dresses, everything.

  • J Deary

    To understand the turmoil of this season, we need to understand Lisa Renna.
    She is a long-term actress on a daytime soap opera. If you ever watch that kind of garbage, you know its primary feature is DRAMA. Nothing is ever ordinary. No one ever comes in
    and says “Are you having a nice day?” – that’s too boring. Instead, they say things like “X said and did this and then Y said and did this. Then Z (Lisa R) comes in and provides a deep psychological analysis of the differing stances of X and Y and claims that she (Z) is the only one who has boldly recognized “the truth”. Well, hello of Lisa R. She has been rotting away in that soap opera for so many decades, she can no longer differentiate between scripted TV and reality TV. She plays the RHOBH as though it’s a soap opera, too, and to be relative, she continually creates drama. She played the first few episodes like a real person, but then she must have become nervous and reverted back to what she knows best — soap opera drama.
    Eileen in the meantime, also acts as though RHOBH is a soap opera, but she is the whining, wide-eyed, naïve, wounded, FORMERLY-young starlet who is just waiting for everyone to recognize she is the most terribly-wronged and most wonderful person among them all.
    Lisa R also specializes in claiming she loves everybody, has always supported them all, is their great friend, and is very concerned about them, (as though saying something makes it true). And she says she is straightforward and tells things like they are without apology (as though that’s virtue). And she claims all of that while she is trying to rip someone to shreds. She also specializes in pronouncing the exact words she wants to hear from her target and APPEARS bitterly disappointed when they fail to admit what dogs they are and how right she is. Indeed – she thinks anyone who does not recognize the brilliance of the pearls she utters is a manipulative evil person. (All the while, lap-dog Eileen shakes her head in agreement.) Plus, Lisa R apparently thinks she has an enormous sense of humor and the evidence of that is she laughs uproariously at the things her own mouth barfs out. It was amusing the first few times, but after the 100th time — not so much. The truly witty, subtle humor of Lisa V goes completely over her Lisa R’s head. Eileen, in the meantime, has no humor whatsoever.
    If Lisa R and Eileen strive to be relative during their daytime soap opera jobs, fearing that their contracts will not be renewed if they don’t provide drama, they both should worry that their RHOBH contracts will NOT be renewed by playing it, too, as though it is a cheap daytime soap opera.

  • debbie

    When Rinna told Kim she wanted her to get better, she was really belittling her.

    • Dayle Hudson

      Yes she was. . She is a true bitch. She needs to talk to a doctor and get pills to calm down.

  • debbie

    What worries me is that Bravo will think this season had so much drama and caused the fans so much anguish, that it makes for a hit season and they’ll want to renew everyone’s contract.. I honestly don’t know how much more I can take of Erika though. I can’t stand Rinna or Eileen, but I can manage to watch them if I had to.. But Erika is so conceited, the money has gone to her head so badly and she’s just a snob. Not sure if I will keep watching this show with her on it. I can’t figure out why Yolanda says that Erika is the smartest one of the ladies. Why? What is it that Erika has accomplished on her own without her husbands money? Yes she’s an entertainer, but not a great singer or dancer, just average, but entertaining. I guess it was smart of her to snag a very very wealthy husband, but come on, that isn’t a life achievement is it? Is it all about how much money a person has that makes them the smartest? I don’t think so, but maybe Yolanda thinks so.. Now on to Rinna.. Its the way she words things to make herself and husband look so nice, but I can see right through it. She said Ken had commented that Yolanda looks ill.. (well hello, she IS ill).. And then Harry Hamlin said they needed to support the poor woman or something to that affect.. Making Ken look bad and Harry look wonderful.. But that’s not what happened at all. Ken sat there very nicely talked to Yolanda and told her how nice she looked.. Later he said every woman needs to be complimented and made to feel good. And THEN he said she looked ill. Notice how Rinna leaves out the best parts and goes straight to the negative and then her wonderful husband defends Yolanda.. Its all propaganda!!! She will stoop so far down to look good, but its BS.

  • Oh_no_they_didnt

    They were my favorites last season and this season I really couldn’t believe how much they both had changed. Eileen lost every bit of her wit and charm. She became an embittered nag continually pointing out what Rinna ‘should’ be upset about. It killed me when when Rinna would ‘forget’ and Eileen had to REMIND HER again and again. All in a desperate, puzzling, failed attempt to bring down LVP. It made no sense and made them both look bad. C’mon Andy — this is not the RHBH that we want!!

    • Marly

      I know! She is always ‘telling’ people what they need to think or feel! Who the heck does she think she is? Just a D list soap actress with a boring nothing life and pitiful wardrobe! Nasty woman!

    • Dayle Hudson

      Renna and Eileen are like children.

  • Marly

    Eileen truly needs to go! She is so mean and thinks her opinions on any and all things is oh so important! I wish Bravo would have shown Kayhryn chewing her out at Kyles party! Eileen is just a poor addition to this show. She has no grace, no class no personality and beyond being a major bore? She is a mean woman! A rabid dog who clearly needs money based on her home decor and wardrobe! Ugh! I want class and glamour! LVP is witty and charming and just a blast to watch and listen to. It sure seems like this Eileen is jealous of her. Let Eileen off this show! She does not belong and neither does Rinna!!!

    Eileen or Ashley, sometimes you just can’t tell!! Is this the real person Eileen Davidson or is this Ashley Abbott? LVP might not like conflict but Eileen is like a spoiled child who didn’t get what she wanted from Mom, so she is left to pout over and over again. Why? Because LVP numerous apologies was not up to Eileen’s thinking on an apology. Eileen it’s time to go back to Young and the Reckless. Please take LR with you on your way out. You two are the most disruptive Beverly Hills creatures from the black lagoon. There is a D movie waiting for you try out those awesome reality acting skills.

  • J.P. Vandiver

    And can’t wait to see the blogger’s reaction to Brandi returning. Bravo wants her back asap

      I only gave you a thumbs down, because I Don’t want Brandi back. UGH!! 🙂

  • MS215

    I really hope Lisa and Eileen will not be back. If I had to pick one to never return it would be Lisa Rinna. Rinna is a child, how can you be a grown women in here 40’s and claim someone made you do something. She takes no responsibility for her actions.

  • heyyall

    Superb take on the chg in these two. Rinna appears unhinged and Eileen is queen of the Harpies.

    • Dayle Hudson

      Renna is always unhinged

  • debbie

    Andy said he will not fire either of them, so that means they’ll be back for season7.. I think Lisa V will quit the show because she has enough stuff in her life to keep her busy and why should she waste her time being bullied and her reputation soiled by those two evil attention hoes…Hopefully they’ll attack Erika at some point and go down in flames.

    • Dayle Hudson

      If Lisa V doesn’t come back for next season I won’t either.
