In The Web Of Beverly Hills
Erika Jayne is new on the scene. Currently she is my favorite character on the show, because she truly is one, she's not just a cast member. Like the true music freak that I am, I have actually watched her music videos, as much as I could, to see if any of her music is at all catchy. So far no, I haven't found any good music there, I'm hoping to though, because I like her attitude. The videos themselves are somewhat entertaining. A lot of her T&A for the most part, not that interesting, but some good dance moves from her playboys. For the record, the type of music she is recording is not my thing at all. I'm not into that poppy shit. I was doing research for this blog post. I do like her loyalty to Yolanda through her sickness though, she's a good friend. There's nothing worse than a best friend who bails on you when you're sick.
Kim is back! I love her. She has her problems and is trying to fix them. She says so every time she has a big issue, so I respect that. It's people who have their problems and then act like they don't and that their life is perfect. If you're out there showing your problems in the form of fighting with your family for instance, drinking to oblivion, being negative all the time and then thinking you don't have a problem, I have no respect for that. Bravo to Kim for accepting she has a problem - drinking - and trying to get better. I personally don't think drinking is a disease. Cancer is a disease, it's something you can't control from happening to you. Alcoholism, "all" a person has to do is stop their hand from pouring and lifting the glass (or bottle) to their lips. With real diseases, there are no options. Some have a problem in that they can't stop (or won't stop?) and so I do understand where calling alcoholism a disease comes from. It's not one though.
Kim and Kyle have a rocky relationship. Clearly they care and love each other however. Seeing the tears each one has and also watching their issues play out on television can't be easy for either of them. It's what they signed up for though. I think it's shedding light on the fact that sibling relationships are sometimes not always easy. I have three sisters, so I know sibling relationships all too well, especially with sisters. I also know how sisters can have a lot of tension in their relationship while still loving each other. Sometimes, it's best to take a break and let things cool out, which is what Kim and Kyle have done. It seems to have helped and they are starting to make their way back together.
The women of Beverly Hills are bringing all of the drama we've come to expect. We've seen sneak peeks of Brandi coming back to talk with Yolanda, the women going on vacation and what looks like more and more turmoil. Can't everyone just get along? If they did, I don't know if it would make for such an interesting show. I, just like you who are reading this - because probably only those who watch the show would have read this post in its entirety - am caught up in the web that is the Housewives of Beverly Hills.
