There's no shortage of minutae and untold background stories when it comes to the Housewives franchises. Like Kim Zolciak told us earlier, there's only so much you can cram into 45 minutes each week, though nowadays with the help of Zeebox, we're giving you some fun tidbits from behind the scenes of your favorite shows.
Don't have Zeebox yet? Well, you certainly should! Go download it here for iPhone/iPad (here for Droid), and in case you didn't have it fired up during The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills last night, here's some fun facts and thoughts from the show's Emmy-Winning Executive Producer, Dave Rupel, that you missed out on by not watching along:
-- On the Ladies' Homes: "I sometimes think about the crews of shows like “Hoarders” and realize how lucky we are to shoot in the beautiful homes of BH."
-- On Alexia (Finally) Getting Her License: "A big shout-out to Alexia for letting us tag along to her DMV test after failing the first couple of times. Brave young woman!"
-- On Kim's Recovery: "In our 3 years of doing the show, this is the first trip or event Kim planned. Very proud of her recovery!"
-- On Brandi's Photo Shoot Phobia: "It’s true. Brandi was very unhappy with how she looked in the photos. Her divorce really took a toll on her self-esteem.
-- On the Brandi-Kim Ojai Conversation: "This scene is one of my favorite of all 3 seasons. Two former enemies looking at each other differently."
Want to be in on these little nuggets in real-time? We highly recommend you download Zeebox and tune in!
Brandi you are so down to earth I think you are so real and original unlike so many of the older Housewives please don't ever take any beauty tips from these wackos they look like WAX FIGURES :( Please don't change anything about yourself
I watch the show because of Kim. She is the most down the earth and forgiving person of the entire RH shows. I started to dislike Lisa and I don't enjoy at all Brandy's language and her going one side to another. I hope the RHBH doesn't end up like RHNJ.
While we're at it, I'd love to know what beauty products Yolanda uses, she has such a natural, wholesome, HEALHTY look to her. I agree about Brandi and Kim, such a sweet moment, where they connected on a very deep level. I think they'll be good friends in the future, despite Adrienne's cackling in the background. And although not a uses of the f word, or really any swear words (I gave them up when my daugther was born), it didn't offend me in the least to hear Brandi tell Adrienne to shut the f up. I wish she told her that at the reunion actually.
Just watched to Ojai episode. 2 things: 1) Brandi needs to write out her workout for all to see 'cause she looks incredible- legs for days!! 2) Adrienne was rude and classless for calling out Kim for crying. Not sure it was necessary of Brandi to call Adrienne out how she did, but it was necessary...
