Is Kyle Richards pulling the strings behind the scenes on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, or are things just conveniently happening this way?
Bravo isn’t afraid of rocking the boat with their established (see: OG cast) cast members who have been around since the beginning, but how can The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills be fixed? At this point, it seems that Kyle Richards is pulling the strings for production and the storylines reflect it. She wanted Lisa Vanderpump gone, and there she went. Now Kyle has her sights set on Denise Richards, and she sent her mini-me, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, to do the work for her.
Kyle doesn’t like to go straight for people she wants off the show, but she manipulates the situation to do the work for her. She just gets to sit back and watch the madness happen! There’s a reason the #RHOBHmeangirls hashtag is always trending on Twitter.
Based on opinions on social media, approximately 10% of viewers (yes that is a made up number) believed that interaction at Kyle’s house when Brandi Glanville spilled the beans. The timeline doesn’t add up. Brandi’s birthday would have been just before the cast went to BravoCon in New York, and she was clearly wearing the same outfit from filming for her Thanksgiving Instagram post from November 28.
Teddi said that Denise was using the “Bravo, bravo, bravo,” trick to get a better edit and didn’t want the conversation to air, but how can she legitimately say that? Teddi is using information from an unreliable source to get an edit that she wants. She’s attempting to manipulate the situation in the same way she’s claiming Denise is doing.
If Kyle is producing this show (we’re only half-joking), she should be let go. The show is going down a very negative path that no one would want to be a part of after watching how they have treated Denise. If you aren’t on Kyle’s side, good luck. How does that make for interesting television? It’s kind of like The Apprentice but with fewer toupees.
At this point, it isn’t clear what could save the show – but something needs to happen. Something without Teddi, preferably.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is on Bravo on Wednesdays at 9 PM ET.
