You can’t get more official than this! Finally, Bravo has released the cast photo and the first trailer of the upcoming season of the hit reality series franchise, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills! 

So get ready for some, wine-throwing, bitch-slapping, table-throwing, and plenty of tears, as soap veterans Eileen Davidson (DAYS and Y&R) and Lisa Rinna (DAYS) mix it up with series staples: Lisa Vanderpump, Brandi Granville, Kyle Richards and Yolanda Foster.

In the new sneak peek video, there is already tense moments between Davidson and Granville, when Brandi says of Eileen during a confessional that the Daytime Emmy winning Days of Our Lives and Y&R  star “sleeps around and tries to steal men.”  Next the cameras cut to Davidson telling Brandi: “Don’t f–king call me a homewrecker!” And then a drink is thrown in Eileen’s face!

Davidson told BravoTV.com on joining the new season of “Housewives”, “It’s so surreal! “But also very exciting and a little nerve wracking. I’m used to scripts when I’m being filmed so this has been a new experience! It’s like being on a roller coaster. And you can all take the ride with me!”

As for Rinna she told BravoTV.com, “You can expect quite and explosive season. If I say anymore than that, I would definitely be giving away too much!” The new season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills kicks-off on Tuesday November 18th at 9PMET/PT only on Bravo!

What do you think of the teaser promo, and Eileen and Lisa in the mix?  Will you be tuning in to see how are soap stars do? Comment below!

Unfortunately, I think that Eileen is “dumbing” herself down starring in this trainwreck. The paycheck was probably hard to pass up, but…

Agreed!— Eileen, you’re too classy to sink to this show! 🙁
I’m not even sure I’m going to tune in to watch.
As much as I LOVE seeing Eileen on my screen- I really don’t want to see her this way…

Just read how Lisa Rinna throws a glass at one of the other housewives. Why are these women dumbing themselves down? I will not be watching. Not a fan of “real” (not) television.

ED is tops in my book and I absolutely wish her the best, but I *so* wish she had not chosen to do this show (though I guess, like everybody else, I sort of knew that the rumors almost had to be true). Even the little snippet MF included in the article about the interaction between ED and this Brandi person feels so . . . trashy . . . to me. (And I’m sorry but as somebody who has never paid one bit of attention to this kind of programming, I have to ask: “Vanderpump,” really? that’s somebody’s real… Read more »

I concur, Michael (Not Fairman). Eileen doesn’t need the work as she is plenty busy running back and forth from Y&R and Days. I want to continue to like and respect her.
Also, the sample of scenes to come sound as if they were scripted by soap writers.
They sound this way because they are scripted!
Eileen, if in the off chance you are reading this, get out while the getting is good. Even Kristen wouldn’t lower herself to this and Ashley Abbott wouldn’t even dignify the request with an answer.

Why in the world established actors would feel the need to appear on housewives is quite puzzling to me. More like scripted t.v than reality. Must be the paycheck.

I tend to agree, jimh (though I can’t say I’ve paid much attention to them on the whole). I would guess that it’s sort of like a long improvisation, with the bare outlines of the situations sketched out for the participants and then they’re expected to sort of take it from there and play things out (and probably directed to be as “dramatic” as possible). Maybe they are even given some concrete suggestions (“And then maybe when she makes you mad, you could slap her and call her a lying slut”). In that sense I suppose having a couple of… Read more »

I havent watched those shows but what ive read and heared about them sounds like its well beneath EDs talents…i might peek and check out one episode but im just not into those kind of shows…your guess about how the show works is right on the money from what ive heard about these shows…my nephews exwife and her current husband was at one of those pawn shops seen on tv and said they were passing out scripts to those participating…even some of the stuff on The Biggest Looser is added to the show…a contestant from my hometown admitted that during… Read more »

I know they are scripted, Jim. However, these trashy shows fall under the genre of “reality show.” Eileen is playing herself and therefore, people will equate her real self with sleazy, low brown antics.
Why oh why is she doing this?

ed is a class act! im sure she wont cheapen herself by being on the show! she ll get more mainstream attention since daytime tv does a poor job promoting thr shows at primetime, and eileen is too talented to be ignored! if days was serious about keeping itslf on air it wouldve brought lisa back to days and flaunt its stars and take advantage of the free publicity! billie could ve come back with rkk as bo! the character is too important to days, and rkk was a hot bo!! days and nbc owned bravo could ve had an… Read more »

Ugh. Trashy. So ED throws the F word around right off the bat??
Looks like yet another trashy show no one needs to watch.
Really wish ED hadnt lowered herself this way.

I have to add: I was quite astonished when I realized this program was on Bravo. How the mighty have fallen. I can remember when it thought of itself as fairly high-brow and aimed to have quality programming.

I love ED but will not watch this ridiculous show. No one cares about a group of uneducated wealthy housewives who do nothing but create havoc. JMO! ED is dumbing herself down with this project. LR has always been a drama queen. She’ll fit right in.

Eileen Davidson should stick to staying on Days of our Lives. She makes Days an without her you will see the ratings fall. Bravo NBC should work with her to do both shows. NBC should bow down to her an save the ratings on its last daytime soap opera. With all these actors living Days why would you let talent like Ms Davidson go who brings up your ratings!!!

I thought these Housewife shows were for bimbos who cannot get their hands on enough money or have every body part adjusted. I’m sure Eileen is getting paid a lot of money but she doesnt fit the above description AND she is highly sought after in the legitimate field of acting and is paid well. Very sad.

Never watched the show, any of them for that matter…. I still cannot believe that Eileen has agreed to this! I am stunned.

As for Lisa Rinna, that woman takes every single gig she can get to stay on air, so I am not at all surprised that she is doing this… in fact it is right up her alley.

Eileen does not need to do this, she has amazing talent. Very disappointed.

Wow, I can’t believe how judgmental people are. Y’all do realize that this is exactly what snobby actors say about working in daytime soaps, right? That soap roles are trashy, undignified, ridiculous and beneath a “classy” or “real” actor? I personally can’t stand the Housewives franchise — but obviously plenty of people enjoy the shows. So to each their own. There’s just no reason to be so nasty to actors who choose to appear in programs not to your taste. I’m sure their agents and they themselves have a better handle on their careers than any of us do. Just… Read more »

This is so incredibly sad. It’s upsetting that someone as talented as Eileen Davidson would participate in such a classless, disgusting program. I’ve lost a lot of respect for her. No paycheck is worth demeaning yourself, your family, and your reputation.

I have never watched any of the “Real Housewives..” franchise shows. However, I did see the promo featuring Eileen Davidson and Lisa Rinna. The promo reinforced the rumors I’ve heard that reality shows are really “fabricated” (i.e. non-scripted fiction). The “homewrecker” charge levied at Eileen sounds like a charge against “Kristen DiMera” rather than Eileen herself. I am curious about this show, simply because Eileen and Lisa have been hired for it. Who better to bring the “fabricated drama” than two veteran soap opera actresses? Don’t know if I will become a continuous viewer, but I am looking forward to… Read more »

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.

DAYS Emily O’Brien Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

She has been a polarizing character since her arrival in Salem, with some fans screaming Gwen is sucking up too much airtime.  HOWEVER, the performances by Emily O’Brien (Gwen) show an actress on top of her craft who can play, as Gwen called herself, “A miserable, vindictive bitch”, or a young woman so deeply-emotionally wounded that you might just come around and eventually feel some empathy for her.

Last week, while the soaps were pre-empted for most of the week due to the senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, DAYS posted all of its weekly episodes online on NBC.com, the NBC app, or on the Peacock streaming platform, and O’Brien’s work was a standout.

It all came to a boiling point when Laura (Jaime Lyn Bauer) and Gwen have the long-awaited confrontation in Gwen’s room at the Salem Inn, where O’Brien goes from Gwen baiting Laura to tell her dirty secret of her long-ago affair with Jack (Matthew Ashford), to her utter anger at how because of it, Laura trashed Gwen’s entire life.

 

Laura reveals the guilt she felt for sleeping with Jack, so much so, that she would do anything to save Jennifer (Cady McClain) and Jack’s marriage.  In delight at getting to the root of the truth, Gwen responds: “You slept with Jack? That is just perfect! My father slept with his mother-in-law!”

Then, Laura shares how it happened.  They were both at the “Meadows” finding their ‘truest selves’ and they were both using other names – she, Monica and he, Clark, and Laura had never seen a photo of Jack before to know it was him!  Gwen wants to burst out in hysterical laughter, but then she becomes filled with rage knowing that if Laura hadn’t bought off her birth mother, Tiffany, her own life would have been very different.  She goes on to say that she and Abigail (Marci Miller) might even be close as sisters, but instead of “borrowing her clothes, she borrowed her husband” alluding to sleeping with Chad (Billy Flynn).  Next, Gwen wants to make Laura pay and lets Laura know that, “All the damage that you did, can’t be undone.” When Laura tries to leave, Gwen stops her and says in no uncertain terms, “I want revenge, because you ruined my life and you’re not going to get away with it!”

Photo: JPI

Next, we see that there had been a struggle with Laura dead on the floor bleeding out of her head.  A freaked-out Gwen does not know what to do.  She realizes she will be accused of murder.  With no one in town to call, she decides to call her father, Jack.  When he shows up at the Salem Inn, Jack is shocked, and grief-stricken to see his mother-in-law, dead.  Gwen swears to Jack this was an accident and that she did not kill Laura, and that he has to believe her.  Jack decides he will stand by his daughter.  Gwen wants to get rid of the body, Jack says he can’t be involved in a cover-up, so he calls Rafe (Galen Gering).  When Rafe arrives at the crime scene he is very suspicious of Gwen, and takes her down to the station.

Scene after scene, O’Brien layered her performances with venomous and ominous undertones, illustrating a woman with so much emotional baggage who becomes desperate to save herself.  For all these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Emily’s work, The Power Performance of the Week.
