18 Dramatic Moments The 'Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills' Cast Dealt With Off-Camera
I wish that the cameras were rolling to capture the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast all year round. I'm sure that would be an enormous invasion of privacy and would probably break some sort of labor laws, but that's not my point. What I'm really trying to say is that the story lines don't stop in between seasons. In fact, the action might actually be better during the off season. There is pretty much always something interesting happening with the Beverly Hills cast whether they are filming or not. This is why I am always hoping that these news stories make it into the show somehow, even if they are just brought up in the middle of some awkward confrontation during the reunion episodes.
There are too many crazy things that have happened off-camera with the RHOBH ladies. I don't even know where to begin, but it makes me stand by my original statement of wanting the cameras to film the ladies all the time. It would be impossible for me to rank the events that have gone down according to craziness, but here are some of the most crazy, intense, or dramatic things to happen off camera for the cast.
1. Kim Richards Goes To Rehab
We have heard a lot about Kim's struggle with sobriety over the years, but we never actually got to see anything about her treatment on the show. Kim checked into rehab following an April 2015 arrest. I wouldn't want to invade her privacy by having this shown on the show, I just wish the steps she's taken toward recovery could be shown, as well.
2. Kim Allegedly Shoplifts
In August 2015, Kim Richards was arrested for allegedly stealing $600 in merchandise at a Target store in Van Nuys, California. This incident was both out of character and concerning. Bustle has reached out to Kim's rep for comment.
3. Rumors Spread About Kyle & Lisa Vanderpump Making Fun Of Caitlyn Jenner
There were vicious rumors going around about Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump making fun of Caitlyn Jenner at a West Hollywood Restaurant. Lisa Vanderpump, an adamant support of the LGBT community, strongly denied these rumors. Anyone who watches the show knows that Kyle and Lisa would never act this way in a million years.
4. Lisa Vanderpump Serves As A Bridesmaid In Lance Bass' Wedding
I know that Lance Bass had his own wedding special on E!, but I would have loved to see the wedding from Lisa Vanderpump's perspective on RHOBH. I love that Lisa was a bridesmaid in his wedding. Their friendship is adorable and I feel like it would have made for some great entertainment.
5. Camille Grammer Diagnosed With Endometrial Cancer
In some very sad news, Camille Grammer was diagnosed with endometrial cancer at the end of 2013. Since then she has become an anti-cancer activist, using her fame to raise awareness and funds for cancer research. Camille has been through so much already so it is not shocking to see her handling her health problems with such grace and strength.
6. Kim's Dog Kingsley Attacks Kyle's Daughter Alexia
A big source of tension between the Richards sisters on the last season of RHOBH stemmed from Kim's dog Kingsley attacking Kyle's daughter Alexia. Alexia Umansky was hospitalized from the attack. Kyle was mad at Kim for not having enough control over the situation to stop the attack from happening, but Kim felt that her sister exploited her for shine on social media.
7. Lisa Rinna Comments On Kylie Jenner's Lips
Before Kylie Jenner made big lips her thing, Lisa Rinna was the one everyone thought of when it came to plump lips. Before the youngest Jenner came clean about her "temporary lip fillers," Lisa Rinna was asked about the teenager's pout on an episode of Watch What Happens Live. Lisa nodded her head "yes" when Andy Cohen asked if she thought the then-17-year-old celebrity had injections. If anyone would be able to tell, it'd be Lisa Rinna — and she was right.
8. Brandi Glanville Engages In Feud With Kenya Moore
I love it when the different Real Housewives cities overlap. Brandi and Kenya Moore did not get along at all on Celebrity Apprentice and continue to diss each other in the press and on social media. I would have loved it if Kenya walked into one of Lisa Vanderpump's restaurants and brought this drama to Beverly Hills. That would have been an amazing crossover episode.
9. Adrienne Maloof Dates Rod Stewart's Son
It seems like Adrienne's life really got interesting once she left RHOBH. When I first heard about her dating a Stewart, I just assumed that she was with rock legend Rod Stewart, but I was wrong. Adrienne was actually dating the singer's then-32-year-old son Sean Stewart. I wish this one played out on the show. I would love to get to see single Adrienne navigating the dating scene on TV.
10. Adrienne Dates Anheuser-Busch Heir
Adrienne really got her cougar on when she jumped from dating Sean Stewart to an even younger man. She dated then-24-year-old Anheuser-Busch Heir Jacob Busch. The relationship lasted longer than fans might have expected with the couple splitting up in January 2015 after a year and a half of dating.
11. Taylor Armstrong Remarries
We saw Taylor's tough times during her marriage with Russell Armstrong on the show, so I was very happy to hear that Taylor married John Bluher in April 2014. I wish that we could see this version of Taylor on RHOBH. She deserves this and her fans would love to see her happy ending on television.
12. Yolanda Foster Has Breast Implant Rupture
Yolanda has been through so much with her health due to her battle with Lyme disease, so it was really heart wrenching to hear that she had to go in for another surgery when her silicone breast implant ruptured, which may have been aggravating her Lyme symptoms.
13. Kim & Kyle Attend Brooke's Wedding
Kim's daughter Brooke's impending wedding was a big topic of discussion on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. And, of course, Kim was feuding with her sister Kyle for pretty much the entire season, so I was curious to see if Kyle and her family would be in attendance at Brooke's nuptials. Kim reportedly took some sort of time out from rehab to attend, and she and Kyle were pictured (far apart from each other) in plenty of group photos at the wedding. I would have loved to see all the Richards sisters and their Hilton relatives mingling at this wedding. That would have made for some television gold.
15. Kim Richards Storms Out Of Doctor Phil Interview
Kim Richards decided to open up to Dr. Phil in a spring 2015 interview about her April arrest. Dr. Phil asked Kim, "Are you living a lie telling everybody I've been sober for three years? You are drunk in a bar fighting with a cop. That is not good mothering!" Kim then stormed out of the interview after she exclaimed, "Is this an intervention? I'm sorry, I can't!"
16. Yolanda's Oldest Daughter Dates A Jonas Brother
Yolanda's daughter Gigi Hadid is now a bona fide supermodel and a celebrity in her own right. This means that the spotlight is really shining on her and her personal life. I would have loved to see Yolanda's reaction to Gigi Hadid dating Joe Jonas. I need to know what she thinks of this!
17. Yolanda's Youngest Daughter Dates The Weeknd
I would kill to see the Weeknd at a Foster/Hadid family dinner with Bella by his side. It would make for great television to see Yolanda and David Foster interacting with Bella Hadid's boyfriend, singer The Weeknd. I just want to see what he's like outside of singing those sexy R&B jams and if he would suck up to his girl's parents.
18. Eileen Davidson Calls Brandi "Alcoholic White Trash" On WWHL
It's no secret that Eileen Davidson is not Brandi's biggest fan. When Eileen appeared on a January 2015 episode of Watch What Happens Live , she and Whitney Cummings referred to Brandi as "alcoholic white trash."
The incidents above could fill several seasons of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. There is just way too much going on in the luxurious zip code to fit it all in. Bravo should definitely show some of the action from the off-season — it would be a guaranteed hit!
