Eileen Davidson is the gift that keeps on giving. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum sat down with Bravo Insider's Life After Bravo for an exclusive interview to dish the dirt on her time as a 'Wife and shed a little light on a topic that always has us intrigued — her style. The successful soap star explained how being part of the glamorous cast affected the way she approached fashion.
"I was kind of just me, who is kind of a beach girl and whatever," she confessed in the video above. "When I was doing the confessionals, they were like 'Lots of jewelry and lots of things!' And so I was just like piling it on. I had these things and these hairdos. And I was just trying to keep up with the Joneses." Even though we can always appreciate a high-fashion moment, who doesn't have a special place in their heart for Eileen's brand of laidback glam?
"When I was going to Kyle's 'barbecues', I would be in a sundress because it's a barbecue. And everyone else was like, you know, fashion Barbie. So that was like a learning curve too. I'm like okay that doesn't really matter", she laughed. "Just dress up, damnit! So that was definitely different for me too, you know."
Alas, Eileen's inner cool girl always shined through. "Sometimes, you know, my true nature would come out. Can I just say something?" she exclaimed. "Do you remember when I wore overalls to Dubai? I got so much flack for that. Do you know that overalls the following year were everywhere?! They were like 'Oh, she's wearing overalls!' And I'm like, 'Yeah, bitch, so's the rest of the world now!'"
In fact, it was overalls and Eileen's easy, breezy fashion sense that brought her and fellow RHOBH alum Denise Richards closer. Earlier this year, Eileen recounted that when she met Denise in the commissary at CBS, the two soap stunners connected while wearing the same one-and-done denim look. "And it was so funny, because first of all, she’s working at CBS, on a soap opera, she lives in Malibu," Eileen shared. "And we were at the commissary, and I kid you not, we both had on overalls, a tank top, flip flops, and our hair in a ponytail. I was cracking up."
