‘RHOBH’ Star Lisa Vanderpump Says #PantyGate ‘Takes On A Life Of Its Own’ This Season

Posted on Dec 22 2016 - 6:12pm by Terri L. Austin

Lisa Vanderpump is trying to rally this season on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. After what happened last year with Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson attacking her at every turn, Lisa brought her ally and friend, Dorit Kemsley, onto the show.

Lisa talked in her blog how difficult it was to film with this group of women. And despite the fact that Eileen and Rinna have blah blah blahed about “moving on” they still clearly have an agenda to try and cut LVP down any way they can.

“After last season it was extraordinarily difficult to come back into this group, but it was made much easier by the addition of Dorit — Dorit is most definitely a friend who I can have a giggle with…without any boundaries, just enjoyable moments that friends can indulge in.”

Kyle Richards and LVP have been friends for years, but when the chips are down, Lisa knows she can’t count on Kyle to have her back. We’ve seen that play out season after season.

“…in times where chaos is so prevalent everywhere we look, it is an essential part of my life to have humorous banter and be secure by the fact that each time you turn away, there is not a blade inserted between your shoulders.”

Lisa addressed the pre-white party get together, where Erika Girardi admitted she was pantiless. I guess from her comments here this plays out more this season. So…we have that to look forward to.

“Knickergate takes on a life of its own, the ripple effect and ramifications of a situation that was, I believe, inadvertently created.”

Dorit, her husband PK, and now Lisa admit that Erika performed a little snatch flash that night. But Erika is doing her best to blame everyone else for her wardrobe malfunction. She was “shocked” that Dorit and PK discussed the incident the next day, and accused Dorit of calling her names. It’s a tempest in a teacup, according to LVP.

“I know Erika was unintentionally exposing her coochy to PK. It was an innocent faux pas, but what transpires after, as we travel through this season, was largely a result of not having a sense of humor about it.”

Erika seems to take herself very seriously. And now with humorless Eileen and ridiculous Rinna in her corner, Erika is going to ride this storyline all the way to the end. 

“Laughing at yourself would ultimately dissipate the embarrassment, rather than exacerbating a ridiculous circumstance.”

So, does Erika come off as cold and sanctimonious or am I misreading her?

    Bravo sure knows how to give the viewers what they want! THIS is why I watch! Forget the glitz and the glamor, real estate porn, or lavish trips, I want to focus on what really matters, Erika’s pantiless cooter.

    /sarcasm

    • the underground train

      I thought they were getting back to that with the back to back birthday parties but, I guess not.

      • Lifesabeach

        It will be 100k parties where all they do is discuss Erikas free-range puss. I’m bored already.

    • Lifesabeach

      I guess if I had a choice I would pick free-range puss over Lyme brain.

      • JustSayin

        While I definitely agree, I am saddened that these are our choices =(

        • Lifesabeach

          Remember the good old days, when Lisa was mad at Adrianne for getting self tanner on her white sofa, haha.

          • JustSayin

            Lol yes! And that made me think of Melbourne, when Gina got tanner on…the snotty bitch with all the nannies…her towels and then she wore her spiked heels on the tennis court and it was like *GASP*

            Rich people problems lol

          • Lifesabeach

            Yes! We need more rich people problems and less bottom of the barrel garbage. I blame Brandi for this. She added some filth during her time and it’s still lingering.

          • Cookie Lyons

            Hmm… who is “broke” in BH? Those are very WEALTHY people. ATL are “Rich” bs, well besides Kandi that has like 30 mills. Money doesn’t buy class, Luanne told us already.

          • Lifesabeach

            Hu? Of course they’re wealthy. We were discussing seeing more petty rich people problems, rather than wasting 10 episodes discussing someone’s lack of undergarments.

          • the underground train

            Gina playing tennis in high heels was hilarious! Melbourne is the gold standard of housewives to me.

          • Monistat Puss

            Classic! And let’s not forget the dinner from hell at Camille’s. Mediums. E-cigs. “He will never fulfill you”. And, The Morally Corrupt Faye. Reality TV gold.

          • Lifesabeach

            YES!! That is exactly what reality tv was supposed to be!!!

          • LuvsSnark

            That, in my opinion, was THE best epi . . . ever!

          • Cookie Lyons

            Lisa is a petty bish and drags on pointless drama…. these shows have no life.

      • Monistat Puss

        Ugh. Those are the choices? The producers are so creatively bankrupt that we have to choose between Lyme travails of the week and free-range cooch with a side of yeast? Yes, I went there. That is all I see when it comes to EG/EJ; a giant petrie dish of yeast. Looks like this season is already projecting itself to be a giant snooze-fest.

    • LuvsSnark

      LOL!!!

  • the underground train

    Thank God none of the Atlanta ladies were there. Could you imagine Kenya yelling “I can see your coochie crack!” or Nene hollering “Close your legs to married men!”

    • wellWellwell

      Honestly, I wish they were there. They could straighten out struggle twat in 3 seconds. Now we have to live this shit next week

      • the underground train

        I feel like a gynecologist talking about someone’s vagina so much.

        • Lifesabeach

          I heard if you stick this season out to the end, you become a certified mid-wife.

          • Kissme

            Omg!😜

  • criley

    This makes me not want to watch. Erika wear panties and you wont have the issue. Eileen and Rinna of course will get involved because they have no story line. Kyle will play both sides. This is getting old.. Get rid of Erika, Eileen , Kyle , and Rinna and get a new cast.

  • MidwestMiddie

    Who will want to watch such a BORING SERIES? This is the best they’ve got?
    Really? ROFLMAO –

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    The things these wenches hyper focus on is too ridiculous for words. Bravo proves week after week just how petty & back biting women truly are.
    I know this is made up drama for television but the fact that we all continue to tune in & then spend our time commenting speaks volumes. I must discuss this with my therapist. LOL!!

    • Cookie Lyons

      If I had their money and “Fame”, I’d be doing better things with my life. I mean, I am now and I am broke but I am fabulous.. I don’t care. lol

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        And there you go.
        I guess these are the things you worry about when you don’t have real life problems. LOL!!

    • Lifesabeach

      Haha! You are so right. Let me know what your therapist says so I can save myself a co-pay. 😉

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        Will do. LOL!!

    • LuvsSnark

      Me too. I was holding out hope that BH would redeem itself this season, but sadly it hasn’t. We’ve gone from one petty fight (“affairgate”) to another (“pantygate”). BH was the last of the franchise that I was actually looking forward to. I’ve wiped Vanderpump Rules, RHOA, RHOC, RHDC, and RHDallas from my DVR. I’m gonna wait to see if there are any other more interesting shows on when RHNY and RHNJ return, and will make up my mind then. Blahvo is becoming a total turnoff at this point!

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        I watched not one episode of NJ. I saw all of 4 episodes of OC. I watched the whole season of NY & was burnt out by the end.
        I knew ATL was going to be more of the same but it has been a snoozefest mixed with SL no one is enjoying. I held out hope for BH but it has been a disappointment thus far.

  • belleyd

    So sick of Lisa..listen lady..every single cast member has called you out..admit it..you use people and plant stories..just own it and move on..tired of this story line

    • jb44

      I believe they are jealous of Lisa VDP’s popularity. Instead of trying to take her down, they should have become a true friend (unlike Kyle) and had her back. After all, even disgusting Brandi faired well until she tried to take VDP down.

      • Cookie Lyons

        Lisa is not the innocent little cute in pink lady though. She loves to say things about other in front of people and that manipulates dynamics. We are not stupid.

        • Kissme

          She does do that, so does every other housewive in their own way. Some of them just do it better than others.

      • nvrbl

        No one is jealous of LVP. Calling her out on her BS is not ‘stabbing her in the back’.

    • Cookie Lyons

      YEah I see it too. She that’s her role though. Like why does she have to make all those stupid comments in front of a new person in the group.

    • nvrbl

      LVP has just become tiresome. She even shaded PK’s ex wife who is not on the show and has no way to respond. Cowardly bully bit(h. This is not the first time LVP has used her bully pulpit on the show to go after random people who are not on the show- like her daughter in law who LVP is hopelessly jealous and envious of.

    • Kissme

      Just OWN it! :/

  • Sugar in my tank

    Puhleeze, seriously all season long. Well, I am not watching if this goes beyond two more episodes. Also, I see these articles are biasedly written.

    • Kissme

      Read the originals on bravo.

  • T’s Martini Lounge

    20 more episodes of this? Not sure I can take the endless discussion of Ericka’s exposed cookie.

    Better than Yolanda crying and saying I’m sick every 2 seconds? Not really.

    • the underground train

      Hopefully it gets buried when Eden joins. I hear she causes some commotion.

      • Kissme

        I’m excited for Eden.

    • AM Hedly

      Imagine yolanda in the middle of pussy-gate, erika’s stupid pussy story line is so insane low life stupid it is entertaning, yolanda is just a nag.

  • TartLemon

    Erika is the one who announced and decided to show it. Kyle is the one who made a big deal about panties in the first place. If pantyless was so egregious, why are they attacking LVP for it? Now LisaR who wasn’t even there is attacking LVP. HRH LVP needs to decree ‘Off with their heads’. I guess I’m just loyal that way.

    • nvrbl

      How about LVP keeps her hands to herself?

  • AM Hedly

    I KNEW it, pat the puss will make her vagina the story line this season, the shy and introvert Erika who flashes her pussy while telling the camera she is so shy, LMAO this woman is so fake and stupid it is actually entertaining!
    And she still wants us to believe she is a woman with class to be taken serious!

  • JuliannK

    Last year we saw Erika stand naked as a jay bird, spread eagle getting body make-up sprayed on. She is not a prude, but she has to realize how she acts and what she says with her gaggle of gays is totally different than being with straight men and their jealous and overly protective wives. Sure she can talk about fashion and not wanting panty lines by going commando with gay men and it means nothing. She announces she isn’t wearing panties in front of straight men and their wives and it becomes sexual and flirty. I don’t think Erika has been around many female friends and straight men other than her husband and just doesn’t understand why they react differently than all the gay men who she has around her to constantly fawn all over her.

    • Kissme

      Do you really think she’s that dense?
      I think she realized the reaction she would get, case in point, how she loud and proudly announced her lack of undies.

  • Cookie Lyons

    Haven’t watched this episode but LVP antics get old… At Erika’s party, the first thing out of her mouth are passive aggressive condescending bs to Rinna and Eileen in front of Doritos. Like STFU lady and stop manipulating “first impressions”. She has more money than God and a pretty in pink life, like why have time for all of that? Let it go. That’s her MO though.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      Do you really believe that LVP is “manipulating first impressions”? Honestly don’t you think these women watch the shows before they join? Just like Erika did and knew exactly who to go after? Anyone who watched last season would see exactly what Erika is.

  • Jennymckitty

    Thanks, Lisa, for confirming my worst fears that Knickergate is going to be a “thing” this season. What a riveting storyline.

  • WMK

    When Kyle was worried about her panty lines showing LVP told her to just take them off, and I thought “here we go a season of panties.” Didn’t see it going this way but I do agree that laughing it off would have been best. That’s pretty much my solution to any embarrassing situation (and I have many) instead of saying in the interview she didn’t want to mess with the dresses pattern she should have said it to them. I have gone that route several times myself.
    It really isn’t that big a deal.
    I still get panties yearly from some friends and family.

  • Karoline

    A little ot here, but on the other site people are ripping lvp for putting her dog on the counter. People are calling her entitled etc etc. I have to say if I’m going to buy a watch for 25k then I am entitled to put my dog on the counter, or anywhere I want quite frankly. And I guarantee the salesperson who is getting a commission doesn’t care either.

    • Lifesabeach

      It was a jeweler, not a diner. If I was the sales lady, I would let her put her bare ass on the counter for some commission.

      • Karoline

        Exactly. Someone stated ” if I put my dog on the counter at Macy’s I would be kicked out”…… Well duh, it’s Macy’s. I like Macy’s but that is comparing apple’s to oranges. I can’t post on that site or I would have.

        • Lifesabeach

          Lol. It’s also a “reality” show. The stores know in advance who is coming, there is a camera crew, the employees are mic’d. People take this fluff way too serious.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      So ridiculous. If LVP had let him sneeze and then stood back and expected the sales lady to clean it THEN i would say it was entitled. She used her own dress to wipe the counter – far from entitled.

      • Karoline

        Exactly.

  • RichmondVA

    This is absolutely ridiculous. Erica went commando with a too- short dress. She flashed the people at the party. She’s gross. PK and Dorit discussed it the next day. GASP- how dare they! And of course LVP gets some blame as well.

    • nvrbl

      LVP shoved her hand up Erika’s dress so yeah, she gets blamed for violating Erika’s personal space and being totally out of line, because that is what she did.
      LVP demanding that Erika react in the way that LVP dictates in relation to LVP’s violation is very common from abusers. LVP will keep doubling down on wrong.

    • Sweetie Cat

      Perfectly stated!! Now we know what they are planning to take LVP down about this year. Lisa hints at what transpires, from this situation, as the season unfolds. I can’t handle any more ridiculous, childish, bitchy behavior out of these women. Erika gets up there night after night, practically, and in at least one time, and probably many more times, did show off her lady bits to an audience of strangers (who her grandhubby, sugar daddy, pays to pretend to like the show). I,myself, saw a pic of her in her performance outfit, and her lady parts were hanging out. I think that she has gained some weight, but won’t buy bigger outfits, and she’s like a sausage, trying to burst out of it’s casing. She wears no undies and a t-shirt dress that’s too short even with undies on. No one made her announce to the world that she wasn’t wearing panties. Now she acts all high and mighty, like a prude, when she is really just a bunch of trash to take to the curb for pickup. And why shouldn’t a husband and wife discuss what happened at a party that was in their home? How dare Erika go to their party, wearing too short of a dress, that’s more like a long t-shirt, and no panties, and flash her bits to the husband, and act like they have no right to talk about it. She is so full of s**t. She needed attention and knew how to get it, and she did. Without panties on, she should know how to sit so she won’t flash people. I’m sure that it was not her first rodeo, nor will it be her last. She is an embarrassment to women everywhere, and now she is going to talk about this for the whole season. I, for one, am not going to watch that crap.

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    How pathetic of Erika to wear no knickers with a really short dress and then whine when someone notices her unknickered cooch. Jesus this woman is unbearable. Shouldn’t Erika be the one apologizing to the group? If she can’t be bothered dressing appropriately then why should they not react?

  • laura

    Well Erika last season you did a full frontal now you are a victim WOW Erika is just trying to get attention any way she can showing her crotch or whatever is needed. She is just like a has been showgirl that is trying to act 25. Actually showgirls are usually in better shape.

    • Sweetie Cat

      That’s true. She pretty much doesn’t even know what humor is. She also doesn’t appear to know what a hypocrite is. She is definitely not in the shape she should be in to prance around in practically nothing. She looks like she has gained some weight. What a pitiful sight for a middle age woman, not really in the shape that she needs to be into, to keep desperately clinging to a dream that grew cold a long time ago.

  • JC

    Okay, I rewatched this episode and it seemed as if Erika indeed over reacted. However, the guest did not treat her as an equal; they seemed amused by her, almost like a precocious child in a room full of adults. Erika wasn’t feeling it and became defensive. I still feel the British humour remark Erika made was indirectly made toward LisaV. Anyway, once it was determined Erika was uncomfortable or had feelings of being picked on, they should have ceased making her the focus of their attention.

    • HankyPanky

      Erika humour/personality?

      • JC

        You do have a point. Erika sometimes comes off as being humorless.

    • nvrbl

      I am so sick of people saying that Erika should just laugh off being violated by LVP. It is NOT OK to put your hand up someone’s dress or for PK to say that Erika’s hoo ha is for all the world.
      If Erika dresses sexy or her stage personna is provocative, that does not negate her autonomy over her own body.
      LVP is slithering into some dangerous waters here. She has no right to tell someone who she has in effect sexually assaulted how to feel or react to it.

  • itsjustme

    Oh FFS! Erika knew EXACTLY what she was doing wearing that short dress with no panties! She no doubt did very little to coverup until her Shenanigans were “exposed”. Only then did she become the demure,introvert, who used a napkin to cover her bits. She’s about as fake as they come.

    • HankyPanky

      Jeeze, we’ve seen it all before, Sonjas spread effect? Erika copy Puss?

    • JC

      Heeey! a lot of us in the 70’s I didn’t always wear panties with short skirts. Hahaha. I kid, I kid…but it’s still true. Now I’m a staid 50 something and it didnt take away from me being a lady

  • WeCouldBeHeroes

    Worse than Munchhousens

  • nvrbl

    Now LVP violates Erika’s personal space and it is Erika’s fault that she does not like it?
    LVP needs to keep her hands to herself.

    • laura

      Really is a tempest in a teapot. LVP didn’t grab her crotch come on she touched her leg. LVP can’t get blamed for this one. I guess americans really are uptight except when it come to wearing underwear! Ha too funny. Erika is so c*nty!
