The lie: On Tuesday night’s episode, Teddi admitted to her involvement in a plan meant to a) embarrass Dorit as being unable to take care of a rescue dog, and b) ensure the other women in their friend group knew about the Lucy drama without Lisa having to tell them (that would be petty and beneath her). In coming clean, Teddi revealed that, not only did Vanderpump know she was going to mention the dog drama to the others, but that they were on a phone call weeks prior working to determine how it would go down. In Teddi’s retelling of events, it became clear that Lisa’s version of the truth had too many plot holes. And when Lisa was confronted with the glaring evidence against her, she was borderline speechless—a real rarity for her.


The why: You could argue that it was only a matter of time before one of Lisa Vanderpump’s perfectly orchestrated schemes got the better of her, but that’s not totally true (remember, poors, this is a bijillionaire speaking. Rich people get away with everything). I believe Vanderpump’s fuck up was on purpose—she (and the Bravo network) needed to extend the drama over the course of a few episodes to ensure that even the most casual Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans would become intrigued with Vanderpump Dogs and all the tension that business can produce because, hello, a spin-off is on the horizon. Prepare yourself for more doggie drama.
