‘RHOBH’ Shocker! A Cast Member’s Drug Addiction Will Be EXPOSED On Season 7

Posted on Dec 28 2016 - 12:42pm by BeachSpin

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are no strangers to addiction drama, and according to In Touch, the ladies are in for another round.

A source reports that one of the cast members will be confronted on-camera by her co-stars, who believe that the reality star might be abusing Xanax.

“There will be major fireworks surrounding her issue,” says the source, “and the other Housewives will try to help her deal with this.”

The insider suspects that cast infighting could have amped the struggle for the mystery Bravoleb.   

“People pop Xanax when they’re stressed out,” the insider says. “And let’s face it, there has never been a shortage of drama when it comes to the ladies of Beverly Hills.”

So who’s the latest pill-popper, snagging the spotlight from the infamous Kim Richards? Is it Eileen Davidson, Erika Girardi, Dorit Kemsley, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Eden Sassoon, or Lisa Vanderpump?

The trailer for the new season of the Beverly Hills franchise reveals rookie, Dorit Kemsley, quipping about bonding with Lisa Rinna over “Xanax and smoothies.” However, Bravo’s notoriously tricky editors could be pulling a fast one. The comment invited side-eyes, but could prove to be simply an intro to the real player’s storyline.

  • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

    My money is on Rinna.

    • Sandy Wood

      That would explain a lot about her erratic behavior. She gets my vote too.

      • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

        But now that I think about it … considering what’s going on these days, it could be Erikunty (popping xannies to cope with potentially never seeing her police officer son again). The previews show her clearly upset about something.

        • Btheladyinred

          She wouldn’t be able to perform like she does if she was taking xanax to the point of being addicted to it. She is way too physically active for that.

          • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

            I would need Xanax TO perform like that … LoL Rinna looks kind of haggard and beaten down to me this season (I think last year really took its toll on her). On the other hand, I don’t think Eileen truly gives an F. This show is more of a hobby for her.

          • TiosBlankie

            That’s not true either. I don’t think many people on here understand what happens when you become very tolerant to these drugs especially in high amounts. They don’t do what a normal dose would do anymore.

          • Btheladyinred

            You are talking to the wrong person about this.

          • TiosBlankie

            Well I disagreed with your comment. The second part just came after the reading of many comments, which is why I said many people so sorry if that seemed to be directed AT you, it wasn’t.

          • Btheladyinred

            Have you ever been a dancer and taken xanox for a long period of time? Apparently you have not because what you said just isn’t true. Xanox isn’t like opiods. No matter how much you have taken it, it still slows down your brain.

          • TiosBlankie

            Actually I know far too well what it’s like to have taken and unfortunately abused all kinds of benzodiazepines for many years, and functioned doing many things, as well as the opposite. I do not abuse them anymore but I know far too well the many effects these drugs can have on you, through experience and through my education, and am well aware they “aren’t like opioids”. So please don’t assume. You can disagree if you want, I really don’t care. I’m going to guess you haven’t been a dancer with benzodiazepine abuse problems for a long period of time, as you guessed I haven’t been?

        • chacha1

          I thought she was close to her son who is a LA police officer even though she left him when he was 3 to go and dig gold

        • SMDRN66

          I’m betting that is Erika acting badly for her Y&R part.

      • Marcy Scrot

        Xanax is antianxiety….calming. Nothing calm about Rinna.

    • Jennymckitty

      If it was Adderall, cocaine, phentermine or some other stimulant, then Rinna would be my first choice. If she is on Xanax, then they need to up her dosage.

      • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

        Hahaha … she seems more low key to me this year … so I’m definitely leaning towards Erikunty.

  • tsc

    Well, we haven’t met Eden yet….so she might be the one. Isn’t Xanax suppose to calm you the fuck the down? If so, this would eliminate high-strung Rinna and Dorit. I am thinking Eileen…..

    • italiano bambino

      I totally forgot about the new chick hope she brings the blings and drama lol

      • Susan Thorne Zavagli

        we need some action…maybe she’ll bring it on

    • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

      With all the death that poor Eileen has had to cope with, she would seem the logical choice, but I don’t think she would jeopardize her professional standing/reputation (contract) with Y & R. Besides, I think she’s stronger than that. Rinna looks pretty beaten down and rough this year, so I’m choosing Soapy over Sudsy.

      • Elizabeth Fisher

        I get confused… I thought Eileen was Soapy and Rinna was Sudsy? Maybe I had it the other way around?

        • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

          Hehehe …. they’re interchangeable.

  • italiano bambino

    4 episodes and still meh. What’s more shocker we know kim is a or was 😉 alcohol/drug user. We know brandi is a alcohol abuser. We know kyle likes her marijuana since it was outed by brandi and kyle make sure it was never brought back again. Xanax nothing shocking. Jmo. I can’t wait for the trips. Now those can be fun.

  • italiano bambino

    Pantigate was so yesterday….

    Btw KYLE split Richards is the BIGGEST shit stirring whore lol

    • cheryl

      Kyle looks like she has less hair this season. Thinner or something. Maybe no extensions??

      • ScrappieONE

        I think she had extension in prior seasons

        • Elizabeth Fisher

          That was her real hair… she cut it

          • MidwestMiddie

            She said it was her real hair but who knows for sure? She, also,
            said her childhood was perfection with a fabulous caring Mother. Lie!

          • RunningWithWine

            Right on MIdwestMiddie

          • Shelley OBrien

            It is her real hair, but she had it cut.. That beautiful hair is all 100% Kyle’s..

  • BeckyGrey

    Ericka

    • tsc

      Oh dear, I hope not…not cunty!

    • RunningWithWine

      Would explain why she’s so dull!

  • Mental Iceberg 🏇
    • tsc

      she might be doing, or did do, drugs (they alluded to cocaine) but her Teletubby boyfriend is clearly not using the white powder — he inhales food and it goes straight to his waist.

    • BetteDavisEyez1

      You know Bravo loves to recycle SL. Every season there is one woman that gets ganged up on. Every season someone has a vow renewal & every season they all go on a vacation & have a huge fight. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    • Cookie Lyons

      That was rich coming from Sonja the ultimate coke head

  • Jessica

    I hope it’s Lipsa McPhee

  • BBB1975

    It can’t be Eileen or Lipsa…they are to high strung to be popping xanax all day

  • T’s Martini Lounge

    My first guess is all of them. My next guess is Dorit or Eden.

    • FL NJ

      Who the hell is Eden? You don’t eden know.

    • Elle

      My thoughts as well.

    • Susan Thorne Zavagli

      I think they have all used it from time to time, when they are stressed as to who is dependent ..I think it will be the newbie Eden

  • chacha1

    It has to be Erika, it is very stressful when you have to change your husbands diapers every night to get some spending money

    • RunningWithWine

      Lol 😂

  • Marsbars09

    Any one of these ladies could be functioning addicts. Unless you are some kind of expert, it’s hard to tell who had been using because people can hide their addiction.

    • Susan Thorne Zavagli

      true, it could be any one of them…we could be in for a shock as to who it is

  • Marsbars09

    OT: I don’t know if any of you have been informed, but Carrie Fisher’s mother, Debbie Reynolds, was rushed to the hospital due to a possible stroke. It’s been reported Debbie was in ill health herself and her daughter’s death probably sent her over the edge.

    • RunningWithWine

      So sad for her. Hope she pulls through.

    • Kissme

      So sad.

    • Jill Marie Bobo

      She has passed also

  • MidwestMiddie

    Big Whoop! So one of the oldies has an old storyline turned into her current one. ZZZZZZzzzzzz

  • RunningWithWine

    I’d say Lisa Rinna, or Ericka! If it’s LR hope it’s Kim who exposes her lol would be kind of fitting! But this could explain why Ericka is so dull!

  • Jennymckitty

    Rinna practically vibrates. She should be on Xanax. I need to take one just watching her. I’d love it to be Kyle or McCunty. Both of them need to be taken down a peg.

    • Marina

      YES!!!!!!!!

  • NoFixinStupid

    May be Erika based on the season promo..”you don’t know what I go through every night” clip

    • BetteDavisEyez1

      GMTA

  • cheryl

    the story on another site gave lisa vanderpumps age as 56??? i dont believe that for one hot minute.

    • WeCouldBeHeroes

      how old do you think she is? 66?

      • Cookie Lyons

        more like it … LVP looks 76 with money and surgeries TBH.

        • Lynne

          Yes, if LVP is really 56, she isn’t getting her money’s worth out of all those fillers and Botox. But if that’s her real age, I can’t even imagine what she would look like without all the help! She has not aged or does not age well.

    • nvrbl

      Eileen is older than LVP. Wrap your brain around that.

      • Susan Thorne Zavagli

        LVP is prettier but she looks older than Eileen……I would like LVP to change out her style and be more casual……her fashion and hair is what makes her look older

        • nvrbl

          I think Eileen is a lot prettier than LVP. It is so subjective. I agree LVP’s style ages her .

    • Cookie Lyons

      Maybe 65 FOH! and if she is 56 she is aging in dog years cause she looks like a wealthy 75 yr old with tons of surgery.

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    This could explain the scene where Erika was crying about no one knowing what she goes thru at night. Just a thought…

    • allison1050

      She sounds like a likely prospect.

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        It has to be hard pretending to be two different personas all of the time. It would also explain why she seems to be void of any emotions.

        • allison1050

          I agree, I think her soul is dead.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            She is so robotic. Her monotone voice & lack of a sense of humor is annoying.

          • allison1050

            To say the least!

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Even her alter ego, the pop star Erika Jayne is boring. LOL!!

          • Except to mayor of boring town, Eileen 😂

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Eileen is also the president of the Erika Jayne fan club. LOL!!🤣

          • chacha1

            she also cackles like a witch

          • nvrbl

            That is called a genuine belly laugh and I love it.

        • nvrbl

          A lot of entertainers have stage personnas.

    • WeCouldBeHeroes

      That’s what I thought. but then I thought Erica doesnt seem like a pill popper nor someone whos had a lot of stress. I dont know

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        I agree from what we see on the show but perhaps she has problems at home or has a difficult time winding down after preforming.
        These “celebrities” don’t even consider things like xanax as taking drugs. It’s the norm in most circles. If they are not doing lines or shooting H in their veins, they don’t consider themselves addicts.

        • Susan Thorne Zavagli

          true

        • SMDRN66

          That preview was way too obvious for that to be real. It’s probably part of her role on Y&R.

    • SMDRN66

      I think that is part of her role on Y&R.

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        Could be. If so, she is a terrible actress. LOL!!

  • Elle

    My vote is on Dorit! What about that preview scene where Dorit is pissed and yells “this is war”??

  • laura

    I vote for Lisa Rinna?

  • Vogue

    The show is getting boring with bunch of bore NH. Erika is an idiot gold digger wanna be with zero sense of humor, Eileen is definition of boring with no interesting personality even LVP is losing her mojo and her victim act is getting boring. Long story short, I bet they are losing viewers so they need to come up with some news or something to keep viewers interested. Kyle shocked the viewers with exposing her sister addiction in the first season, after that Bravo keep trying to create the same formula over and over again but it’s not working. You need interesting people, with boring people you can’t make it interesting. RHONY stays my fav cause Luann, Sonja and Roman will always deliver, they don’t care what viewers think and no one wanna be fan fav. In BH they care too much how people will think and react on tweeter that makes them all so boring.

    • the underground train

      ITA

  • Bryan

    Blowfish

    • Susan Thorne Zavagli

      no she runs on high energy

  • criley

    Kyle has anxiety and fear of everything and addiction runs in her family.

    • Susan Thorne Zavagli

      I don’t think she is the one addicted, but she has taken Zanax and I am sure it has been more than once…she runs on high octane

    • nvrbl

      You do not need an addictive personality to become addicted to xanax.
      Anyone who takes it every day will become physically addicted. You need to taper off of it under a doctors supervision. You can die from the withdrawals.
      Thank big pharma and irresponsible doctors.

  • nvrbl

    The only time I had xanax, my husband’s doctor gave me a script for it when my husband died. I hope Eileen’s doctor did not help her through her grief by getting her addicted.

    • jb44

      I, too, was given Xanax when my husband died. I stopped taking it after two months when I realized I was feeling like I was in a fog all the time. Because she has experienced so much death in her family, I think it might be Eileen, but I truly have no idea.

  • WeCouldBeHeroes

    Rinna would be obvious choice but I’m still not sure.
    Maybe it’s Mommy Dearest LVP.. all that stress from last year. We know she loves to smoke on ciggies when she’s feeling overwhelmed. Maybe it wasn’t enough and she needed some pills

  • Susan Thorne Zavagli

    I am sure they all have Zanax in their medicine cabinet, but as to who has a addiction, I really don’t know………Brandi is off the show, but she openly talked about taking Zanax……… not related, but Vicki on the reunion said she had them in her dressing room just in case she needed one………maybe Eden Sassoon

    • Cookie Lyons

      NJ reunion few years ago Jackie Laurita said ” I just popped Xanax with wine”.

  • LuxLuxLux

    Rinna’s my first thought. She’s got to be on something. If not then Eileen or Erika to get through her marriage.

  • Susan Thorne Zavagli

    just reread the article………the celeb abusing is having problems with the cast fighting……I think it could be Erika

    • Maria

      I also believe it’s EG. There’s a clip of her saying ‘you don’t know what I go through at night’. I always thought that was in reference to her marriage, but now I’m thinking it’s due to her performances and how really shy she is

      • Birdie

        That was my initial thought too. Erika’s forced extrovert shtick has got to be stressful, when it isn’t coming from her true personality. The show is blowing it up even more…plus as E Girardi she is a bore, and seems curiously detached.

  • JustSayin

    “People pop Xanax when they’re stressed out,” – we obviously have very different ways of dealing with stress…

  • itsjustme

    Isn’t Xanax a downer? If so, it can’t be Rinna. That chick has to be on coke or something.
    My guess is Erika. The way she speaks in a monotone manner much of the time just gives me the feeling she’s on something that affects her.

    • RunningWithWine

      We were speculating on another thread that it’s Rinna and she uses uppers during the day and downers later to unwind! Like Adderall and then Xanex. And someone pointed out part of the promo LR says her and Dorit get along and Dorit says they bonded over xanex and smoothies. So it could be either or neither but I think Rinna may have quite a few skeletons in her closet.

    • Miss SuzyQ

      Xanax is an anti anxiety medication. Xanax is used to treat anxiety disorders, panic disorders, and anxiety caused by depression. . it is also given for fear of flying, however you should never mix Alcohol with it

      • TiosBlankie

        It’s also prescribed for many other things and unfortunately it’s far to easy to be prescribed benzodiazepines these days.

  • chacha1

    Never thought I would say this but I do not give a rats ass about this show anymore….. I am tired of Kyle always lurking under the radar and tired of that violent bat shit crazy Rinna …. bye bitches

    • PCpolice

      I’m with ya chacha..It’s lost its mojo.

    • Miss SuzyQ

      VYle is such a sh!t stirrer

  • PCpolice

    Could this be the reason for Erika’s breakdown, “you don’t know what I go through every night”==so she takes zanax?

    • Wicked Cupcake

      That’s my guess!

    • I think that’s about the worry of her son going off to work as a cop. I’m just guessing…Maybe he works nights because I read it has nothing to do with her marriage and Erika does not give off a drug user vibe to me at all. Not the regular stuff. Maybe some great stuff where you can’t even tell she’s on anything from a psychiatrist, etc.

  • Marina

    I guess Rinna …. but she looks more like bipolar. Erika always “calm” and just want or more NEED to kiss the ass of her husband. Both 2 need Xanax desperate. But Rinna seems to be mad all the time.We see clear signs of selfishness, big ego and 180 degree turns in her behavior. Eileen go home and die.
    LVP – I love you !!! You are a role model for my “real” friend. Humor and still, your brain – you are a only real female star for me. Wish you and Ken a good new year, the health and maybe a grandchild!!!!
    Rinna go take a Xanax or Valium. You are super restless and want to find a new issue with anyone.

    • TiosBlankie

      Benzos can make you super agitated either taking them and definitely in withdrawal from them.

  • Wicked Cupcake

    I’m guessing Pat the Puss since she is seen crying and saying “You don’t know what I go through every night”.

    Yawn @ addiction storylines. They are so 2008. Wake me when Bravo hits on something new to interest a viewer. Tired of fake illnesses, addiction and con men storylines. None of them are ever revelations nor explosive. Viewers with common sense know the scoop before these stories are even revealed. Was anyone shocked by Kim being a drunk, Apollo being a crook? Brooks lying about Cancer? Yolanda exaggerating her Lyme disease? The divorces of Cynthia and Yolanda? Nope!

  • NoOneInHell

    I think it’s Rinna… Xanax can make someone fully functional and lose blocks of time and all memories of conversations.

  • Julie S

    Either Rinna or Erika. Both seem to be unglued lately. I am gonna go with Erika, because they want us to think it is ‘xanax-smoothie’ Rinna. Erika was very reserved in her first season, but is now giving us exponential doses of herself. Yuck.
