A new inaccurate story from RadarOnline claims Bravo’s “‘Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills’ reunion [show] is filming today with the entire cast at an undisclosed studio in the Los Angeles area, and the on-air and behind-the-scenes drama is explosive.” But Gossip Cop can correct this fake news. We’re told it’s complete fiction.
Gossip Cop will get to the punchline in a bit, but first we’ll let the often discredited website expose its fabricated and sloppy reporting. According to a seemingly made-up or woefully ill-informed “insider,” “Filming is expected to go all day, and into the evening.” The same unreliable or pretend “source” further “expects catfights to quickly turn nasty” during today’s filming because “tensions are running high.”
The repeatedly mistaken site maintains cast member Dorit Kemsley let producers know “she is ready to go after” Kyle Richards, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, and Camille Grammer. As for Lisa Vanderpump, the outlet contends she’s just going to let “the other ladies to duke it out with each other” today. Adds the blog, “Arroyave and Ericka Girardi ‘have been exchanging verbal barbs on social media after their blowout episode just aired,'” and there’s no doubt “the animosity is only going to get worse once cameras roll at the reunion” tonight.
There is one slight problem with the website’s latest misfire. Despite the blog asserting how the “filming today” is going to be “explosive,” the “Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills” cast is 100 percent not shooting its reunion show today. A rep for the Bravo exclusively tells Gossip Cop that the outlet’s article is “totally inaccurate.” We’re assured the reunion “will be taping later this month.”
And not only did the lazy site misspell Girardi’s first name,” but the reality star, who also goes by Erika Jayne, isn’t even in Los Angeles right now to participate in a purported reunion taping. She’s very noticeably in New York on a tour for her book, Pretty Mess, which could also half-describe the website’s reporting. Just a modicum of fact-checking would have revealed that on Tuesday, Girardi was on “Watch What Happens Live” in New York. She remained in Manhattan on Wednesday when she appeared on “The Wendy Williams Show.” And Girardi is signing copies of her memoir in Brooklyn on Thursday. Obviously, she didn’t fly in a snowstorm to L.A. after “Wendy Williams” for the non-existent reunion and then plan to jet all the way back for a book signing.
What’s even more embarrassing about the website’s bogus story, if possible, is that it’s not even the first time RadarOnline has published fake news about a “Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills” reunion before it has even taped. Back in August 2012, Gossip Cop busted the outlet when it posted an article packed with phony details about how the cast members had just filmed the “most drama filled reunion taping of any of the ‘Housewives’ franchise” when it hadn’t actually happened at that point (see below). Much like that false report, this latest tall tale is also nothing more than a fabrication.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
