Do ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Get Into a Supreme Court Smackdown?
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans were just thrown a hunk of red meat, as Bravo offered a sneak peek of season nine’s trailer. Although the series won’t premiere until February, the teaser gave fans plenty to chew on while they wait.
Plus RHOBH OG, Kyle Richards offered this hint about the season during O Come OG Faithful Watch What Happens Live too. Frosty the Shademan asked Richards, “Which housewife is the biggest ‘f’ing liar?” Richards clearly looked uncomfortable and said, “Depends on the season, there’s quite a few,” she says. “This whole season is basically…lies. There’s a lot of lies this season.”
And while the trailer screamed “lies” (and drama), it proved the ladies will argue about nearly anything. Even controversial Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh sparks an argument.
These are the women involved in the spat
During what seems to be another epic Real Housewives dinner, Lisa Rinna and Camille Grammer Meyer come to blows over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. “He’s going to be a judge on our court for the rest of his f**king life,” Rinna says across the table to Grammer. To which Grammer replies, “I know what it feels like to be wrongfully accused.”
Is the argument about more than Kavanaugh?
Perhaps Grammer hasn’t moved on since season one when she felt as though she got a bad rap. Last year she told Bravo’s The Daily Dish she had a lot of empathy for new cast member Dorit Kemsley. Kemsley took a lot of heat last season for talking way too much, which portrayed her in a poor light.
Grammer expressed feeling glad she was out of the fray but wished she could be there to stand up for Kemsley. “You kind of feel the safety of not being in the drama, but I wish that I did [the reunion] because I was involved in a lot of the conversations that didn’t make it on air. I would have liked to be able to support any wrongdoing or who was being wrongly accused of doing something.”
Grammer also made her position known on Twitter
In September, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand tweeted her support for Kavanaugh accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. “I believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. She’s not asking for extraordinary measures; she’s asking for basic fairness. I hope that every woman in America is paying close attention to what is happening in the U.S. Senate right now.”
Grammer felt the need to respond. “I hope that she donates all of the 900k from one of her go fund me pages to shelters for homeless abused women and their children,” she tweeted. “Those are the helpless victims that need our help.” But then was challenged by Buzzfeed writer, Stephen LaConte. “actually, camille, she’s using the money to pay for the security team she now needs to protect her family from death threats because people like you keep accusing her of lying.” LaConte points out Grammer previously tweeted about how Blasey Ford’s account was “suspicious” and questioned her motives for coming forward.
Grammer insisted she didn’t think Blasey Ford was lying. “I didn’t say she is lying. She believes something happened.” But the conversation ping-ponged back and forth. But clearly, Grammer felt strong about this one.
