We think it's fair to say that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has seen better days, and the cast members are phoning it in at this stage for the paycheck.
When The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 Episode 3 got underway, Dorit Kemsley was in debriefing mode with her husband, PK, about what happened in Las Vegas.
Dorit admitted that she bonded with Erika during the trip. She did the impossible: She managed to penetrate the shield of ice Erika has held in front of her heart since she first appeared on the show.
While that may have been a win for Dorit, she stopped short of dishing all the goodies about her reunion with Lisa Rinna. Maybe she knew PK would not approve.
If you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online, you will already know that PK has been less than enthusiastic about Lisa Rinna in the past.
Maybe it's because Lisa Rinna is one of those people that can see through his tough-guy attitude and knows a giant d-bag when she sees one.
Elsewhere, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave made her first big mistake as a regular cast member: She went behind two of the other housewives' backs and met up with the pariah that is Lisa Rinna for some lunch.
Maybe Teddi realized that the pathway to more screen time is mingling with the one who has nobody else around to steal the limelight.
The good thing about the lunch date was that it allowed more of Teddi's personality to shine on through. Through her first two appearances on the show, she seemed more like a parent on The CW's reboot of that popular Fox show from the 90s.
Her acting was as wooden as the performances of the people who played the parents on that show, and we're not even sure she should be acting given that this is reality TV!
Later, good old Lisa Vanderpump rounded up Dorit's friends and family for some drinks and food to celebrate the eve of Dorit's birthday dinner.
It's bizarre that they're going out drinking for the night before the party, but it's nice to see how the other 1% live. Dorit's son, Jagger was the main attraction because he pretty much said what Dorit had been saying about Erika.
While Erika was glad to have a child along, the kid yelled "bad guy" at her during the dinner, and Dorit looked like she wanted to hit up her plastic surgeon and get a brand new appearance so that she never had to meet Erika again.
“My son’s very into bad guys and superheroes,” Dorit said to the camera. Yeah, we're not buying what you're selling, dearie.
As if things were not awkward enough, Lisa Rinna decided to make a speech. These two are barely friends, so it was hilarious that she thought a speech was in order.
“We are in a really nice place, so thank you and happy birthday to you,” Rinna said.
While all seemed good between the ladies, the fireworks kicked off once again after Teddi and Edwin were invited to dine at Dorit's home.
It was a double-date and Dorit was cooking. We were just glad Lisa Rinna was not in attendance because there's no telling what PK and Dorit would do to take her down.
PK wasted no time in telling Teddi and Edwin all about the drama with Lisa Rinna.
“He thinks Lisa Rinna is schizophrenic,” Dorit said.
“She’s one person one minute and then another person another minute. She’s rage and regret – rage and regret,” Dorit said.
Teddi was unimpressed, but kept her composure for dinner, and turned to the camera to dish out her two cents.
“I’m confused. You just had this big moment where you’ve forgiven each other,” Teddi said. “And now you’re at a dinner, talking about it again. That’s not forgiveness, in my opinion.”
Now, all we need is Teddi to go to Lisa with those loose lips and reveal everything that happened during the dinner party. That way, we'll have a real party.
