Wow! So many responses and so much debate about last week’s episode about Camille’s dinner party -- this week’s blog will be strictly answering your questions.
Question: “WindyCityWondering” (as well as several others) asked for more Beverly Hills and less fights.
Answer: What can I say? You can’t please all the people all the time. I don’t mean that to sound glib. If you read all the responses to my last blog, some people loved all the drama, and some didn’t. Also, the previous two episodes contained zero fighting among wives. 107 revolved around Kim’s blind date in a $55 million dollar mansion, and 108 had two funny stories: Lisa’s driving test and Kim’s barbecue with “Single Gary,” and two dramatic, uplifting stories: Kyle’s bike-a-thon to raise money for cancer, while Taylor raised money for a domestic violence charity, something she revealed she witnessed as a child. While Windy, I hear what you are saying, it’s my job to tell a variety of stories.
Q: True Grit believes there is a connection between the show Medium and Allison Dubois’ appearance on RHBH because Bravo is owned by NBC.
A: Understandable theory, Grit, but not the case. Medium was actually cancelled by NBC two years ago and has aired on CBS for the last two years. So no, there was no NBC corporate connection there. Also, Medium was cancelled by CBS weeks before Allison’s episode aired and Bravo would never give CBS an advance copy since they are a competitor of our parent company.
Q: CNM (as do many others) thinks we “struck gold” with this franchise.
A: Thanks CNM. We think this cast is pretty fantastic and very unique as well.
Q: HeideBlue thinks the show is becoming the “Kyle and her mean girls posse” show.
A: What’s fascinating for me as a producer –- and someone who has studied human nature for years as a producer –- is the litmus tests these shows provide in how the audience react to certain people. A lot of the audience loves Kyle. A lot of the audience think she’s a bully. And there seems to be no consensus to who is in the wrong about the Kyle-Camille feud.
Dear Dave, Just read that the reunion taping was EXPLOSIVE. Could you give us a sneek peak? Thank You
I was just wondering why in all of the other House Wives of... shows that the famlies are in the background during the beginning credits but not so with Beverly Hills?
I love this blog! I always find myself wondering things, and it is so great to learn about behind-the-scenes action.
My question: I also would like to know more about the interviews. I pay attention to the outfits they are wearing, and it seems like there are only a handful of interview sessions for each lady for the entire season. At what point do you interview them? Are they obligated to answer your questions? Do they ever not want to comment on something that you ask them about? Do you ask them questions about everything, and then only the questions that are relevant to what is shown in the episode is aired? Or do you only ask about the big events?
Thanks for taking the time to answer fan questions.
