Soap Opera star Eileen Davidson stepped on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills scene last season, and she’s been a fan favorite ever since! Eileen is classy and sophisticated, with that Hollywood vibe we’ve been longing for on the show. Eileen lives in a world surrounded by testosterone with her husband, 2 step sons, and young biological son. Watching her in the day to day is hysterical, and this week was no exception. I’m sure all of the moms out there found it all too familiar watching Eileen get her son off to school. Eileen fell middle of the pack for me last season; nothing to dislike, but nothing that stood out either. It’s only three-weeks-in but she’s already moving up in my book! I’m really enjoying Eileen so far this season, and can’t wait to see what’s to come for her!
Lisa R.’s daughters are fabulous girls! They’re growing up, and I know it can be an “interesting” transition. Vince and I went through it with Duke and Vinny. It’s definitely different with boys, but still challenging. Jesse being 12, I know that negotiating curfews with him can’t be far behind. Terrifying is the word that comes to mind. But how cute are Delilah and Amelia? Gorgeous like their mom (and dad for that matter). I was laughing (crying on the inside) seeing Vince, Jesse, and me in the A.M. trying to get ready for the day. In a house full of boys, I am the lone female voice that calls (screams), “Do your dishes! Empty the trash!” Maybe our house is haunted. I’m the ghost; nobody seems to see or hear me!
At our leopard-ladies dinner, it’s great to catch up with Lisa R. and Kyle. I’m glad Kyle didn’t miss her niece’s wedding, but it’s obvious it’s still not an easy subject. At the time of the dinner, I wasn’t aware of everything else she was experiencing with her family. I wish I’d been more sensitive where Kim is concerned. Kim and I had our issues last year, but I sincerely only want the best for her and continue to hope that she has put the worst behind her and is doing well.
I thought Kyle and Mauricio knew how to travel in style…until I saw Lisa V. and Ken get the private hel-eeee-copter to Monte Carlo! It’s hard enough shopping for husbands’ birthdays, but what do you get the man who has everything? A miniature pony, of course! I’d love to see Vincent’s face if I gave him one for his birthday. Haha! He’d want to get a whole bunch of little horses…so he could race them and lay some bets, I’m sure.
The state of Ohio must not have known what hit it with the Lisas flying into town (Fully ready to go to the farm with their cowboy hats? It’s Ohio, NOT Texas!) I’m going to call Lisa V. the little horsey whisperer from now on. It seems like she can’t catch a break planning Ken’s birthday. From beginning to end, there are weather issues and horsey issues. When we get to the day of the birthday lunch, it rains again!
I’m sure Lisa V. wasn’t planning on her beautiful garden party turning into a wet t-shirt contest, but since it was already raining, I figured a little more water wouldn’t hurt. So yeah, I saw Kyle in the pool and thought, “Why not?” Of course I had to splash Lisa R. and everyone else! The day was so magical: the bucolic setting, over-the-top decorations, the HATS, and then an impromptu thunderstorm. It felt otherworldly. This is Southern California. When it rains, it’s a legit miracle! All I can say is I’m happy Ken (and his expensive shoes) is OK after he got tossed in. He didn’t get a little pony for his birthday, but he did get a bunch of CRAZY housewives using him as a pool toy.
Yolanda’s health continues to be a big topic. Taylor is discussing the validity of her illness because of Instagram? Are you kidding me? Taylor, are you a doctor? Because I’m not, so I will trust the professionals in making assertions about Yolanda’s health.
Erika is so interesting! I love that she has an alter ego. As an actress, I have alter egos, too, you know. But none of mine are half as fun as Erika’s. Wait, the one that drugged and raped the priest was pretty fun. Evil, perhaps, but definitely fun, however, Kristen doesn’t have Erika Jayne’s moves. That we’ve seen, anyway. But I’m pretty sure Kristen has one or two of Erika’s dance outfits hanging in a closet somewhere. Watching this episode, how can I not be excited to see what happens as Erika is added to the mix with the rest of the ladies? Do I see us all being back up dancers in the near future? Now THAT would be CRAZY!
I LOVE what Eileen had to say! I think Lisa Rinna’s daughters are gorgeous, and I always wonder what other “famous” kids they hang out with! They must have WAY more rules then most teenagers in Hollywood; don’t worry girls you’re almost 18! I was wondering why Eileen was so “aggressive” in asking Kyle about Kim. Not aggressive in a negative way, but open and outright about it; we can all agree there was nothing sympathetic about her tone during this conversation. Now she clarifies she didn’t know all of the details; she deserves a pass on this one, no one knew what was really going on. I’m glad Kyle didn’t get offended, you can tell she’s got a LONG history of keeping her family problems under wraps. I also love that she pointed out that Lisa and Lisa were dressed like cow-girls in OHIO! I was cracking up, but it was a trip to pick up a pony, so I get it! I was so baffled that out of no where it just rained during Ken’s birthday party? They didn’t see any clouds in the sky? Either way, it worked out and the ladies seemed like they all had a blast! I’m thinking they all got tipsy at this lunch; I’m sure those dresses cost a fortune, they wouldn’t be jumping in a pool during the day without some liquid encouragement. As for Erika, it worries me that Eileen calls her “intersting,” and says she “loves that she has an alter ego.” She doesn’t say she loves her, or her alter ego. We’re going to have to wait and see how this plays out. I’d pay BIG money to see an Erika Jayne show with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ladies as her back-up dancers; wouldn’t you?
What did you think of Eileen’s blog this week? Are you liking Eileen more this season? Did you think she was harsh during the Kim conversation at lunch with Kyle and Lisa Rinna? Any predictions for this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?
