I have two reasons for (obsessively) watching reality TV. First off, some shows I love because I can watch people who I can relate to on some level. On the opposite end, I love to watch people with lifestyles I could never imagine having and get a glimpse into something totally different than my personal reality. I watch the Real Housewives series to mix both of those reasons. Sure, there are some personalities who I identify with, but obviously I can't truly relate to their rich celeb problems. And even if you can't totally relate to one of the cast members, that doesn't mean your favorite Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 7 cast member doesn't say something about you.
Your favorite is your favorite for a reason. Believe me. You might have a list of reasons why Lisa Vanderpump is your ride or die or you might love Kyle Richards without ever thinking about exactly why you feel this way. No need to fret though — you have me to interpret your preferences.
Obviously, this isn't an exact science, but I've been watching this show from the jump, so I would like to think I know what I'm talking about. Take a second to think about your favorite RHOBH lady this year and see what that preference says about you.
1. Lisa Vanderpump
If you identify with LVP, then it's safe to say that you have an appreciation for the finer things in life like magnums of rosé, luxurious trips, and palatial mansions. You probably share her strong compassion for issues that are important to you, similar to the way Lisa fights for LGBT and animal rights. There's also a good chance that you have no qualms standing up for yourself. You are are your own biggest cheerleader and you won't apologize for sticking to your convictions.
2. Kyle Richards
If you feel like the Kyle Richards of your friend group, then you're probably familiar with being caught in the middle of other people's drama. Kyle seems to be on good terms with everyone in the cast, which makes things awkward when everyone expects her to come to their defense. You appreciate the security of money, but you would rather focus on creating memories with your family and close friends.
3. Erika Jayne/Erika Girardi
If Erika is your girl, then you might also be a chameleon like her — and by that I mean you have a well-rounded personality and you can adapt to every setting. You are all about being loyal and sticking up for your friends, but you always do so with maximum composure. Nothing and nobody could ever make you sweat. You are all about doing the most without any regard for anyone else's opinions.
4. Lisa Rinna
If you've watched this show and felt like Lisa Rinna in social situations, then you might consider yourself to be a people-pleaser. You do what you can to get along with everyone, even if these aren't actions that you always agree with. Nevertheless, you have no issue apologizing when you mess up and you "own" what you've done wrong.
5. Eileen Davidson
If you've watched Eileen and thought to yourself, "She's so me," then you are not comfortable with confrontation. You don't get upset easily, but whenever you admit that you're actually mad, then you really are mad and you will not stop until you feel like you are vindicated and apologized to.
6. Dorit Kemsley
If you are all about the newest full-time Housewife, Dorit, then you might enjoy getting people together — whether you love throwing dinner parties or inviting your friends to lunch in an effort to move past some drama. You have no issue talking about your accomplishments, because you are proud of everything you've done (and every place you've traveled to).
7. Eden Sassoon
If you already love the new "Friend of the Housewives" Eden Sassoon, you probably applaud her ability to just throw herself into any situation and talk to anyone, even people she just met. If you feel like Eden is so you, then you are an open book when it comes to everything you've been through. You might also feel like you're past experiences give you the tools to help others with similar issues.
8. Camille Grammer
If the Season 7 Friend of the Housewives version of Camille Grammer is your favorite lady then you have a great sense of self. You have no issue sharing your opinions and you know how to do so in a tactful manner. Not only do you have great social qualities, but you value what's really important in life. You do what you can to give back and educate yourself on important issues and you know how to utilize your social charms to get your friends involved in your philanthropic efforts.
9. Kim Richards
If you find yourself rooting for Kim Richards, then you identify with a comeback story. You are all about self-improvement and taking the steps to better yourself each day. You have a positive attitude even though you may have been through a lot, and you are all about moving on and moving forward. With that said, you will not let anyone tell you anything about your own life and you have no issue standing your ground and telling your truth.
Sure, most of us cannot relate to living in mansions, going to lavish events every week, and being famous, but when it comes down to it, the Housewives are people just like the rest of us and there are parts of them that we can all relate to.
