Opening Lines: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills


It's that time again...another season of Real Housewives means another chance for us to analyze the newest taglines! After the lackluster showing from Atlanta, this batch was overall more in alignment with the soapy goodness that we've come to expect from our housewives. Let's explore these new lines together, shall we?


Lisa V: "Throw me to the wolves and I shall return, leading the pack."
M: I love, love, love this line! I’m glad to see Lisa is back and better than ever after her downfall last season.  She’s here to send a message with this tagline and just based on the very first episode, it’s working! She’s not one to be messed with, so I’m glad she’s back to lead the pack this season!



Lisa R.: "You've heard a lot about me but it's only true when it comes from my lips!"
B: I was so excited when I heard that Lisa Rinna was joining the cast! She's been hanging around the Bravo Clubhouse for years so it was only a matter of time before she finagled her way onto this show (with Harry Hamlin by her side, naturally). I love this tagline because obviously she is known for her lips and is using her intro as a wink to the camera - she knows that she is here to play a cartoon version of herself so she might as well call attention to her most infamous asset right off the bat!



Eileen: "I'm not a bitch but I've played one on TV."
M: I admit, I’d never heard of Eileen before seeing her on the first episode, and while we didn’t see much of her, I already like her based on this tagline!  I think it’s hilarious and it almost makes me want to hunt down something she’s been in (though not quite..haha!).  I’m excited to see what she’s going to bring to the table this season, but as a rookie housewife, I say well done with your first ever tagline, Eileen!

Yolanda: "Character isn't what you have - it's who you are."
B: This line is a bit of a snoozefest for me, but it's also classic Yolanda. Our favorite lemon-lover is all about dignity and true class, so I'm not surprised that she used her tagline to emphasize the importance of character. However, I'd like to see her spice it up and come up with something a little more fun next time - step out of your comfort zone, Yo!



Kyle: "Planes and yachts are nice, but happiness starts at home."
M: Just when I was starting to think that maybe I should give Kyle a chance, she comes out with this tagline! Sorry, girl, but not. a. fan.  In my opinion one of the things that bothers me so much about Kyle is the way she tries to come across as this model family of perfection.  I get you love your family, but it just reads as fakety fake to me, and this tagline certainly isn’t helping the situation!  And funny that she comes out with this tagline and then immediately proceeds to throw “the party of the year,” in which clearly no expense was spared!

Brandi: "I'd rather spend my life kicking ass than kissing it."
B: It just wouldn't be a Brandi line if it wasn't the most brash one of the bunch! Our gal Brandi is scrappy, and definitely not a suck up. Sure, she sticks her foot in her mouth sometimes but her honesty is refreshing, and this tagline reflects her "what you see is what you get" attitude - I approve!





Kim: "I've been rich and I've been famous, but happiness beats them both." 
M: I’m feeling kind of meh about this one.  I’m happy that our kooky Kim is happy, but where is some of the crazy Kim spunk that we all know and love?!  And I wonder if Kim and Kyle planned to both school us on happiness with their taglines?! It’s kind of strange, now that I think about it! I do love Kim, and this tagline is fine, I guess, so I’ll give her a pass, but it’s certainly not making any top 10 lists of mine!

So what do you think of this newest crop of taglines? Which ones are your winners and your least favorites?

  1. My favorite was Lisa Vanderpump's line for sure! I love her! Kim and Kyle's lines were pretty boring... hopefully they're more entertaining on the show this season than their opening lines!

  6. Lisa will always be my favorite!! I have to say I watched the two new episodes last night and Kyle must have been getting a lot of flack from viewers and people because she's made a lot of mention about money and stuff and then comes back with oh gosh that sounds bad...we'll see how it goes lol!! Can't wait for the slap heard across the world!

  8. LOVE this post, love those girls, adore this show. Beverly Hills & OC will always be my faves shows ever, not sure what I'll do when they end... Lisa V is seriously amazing! I'm loving the weekly double dose I'm getting of her with Vanderpump Rules & Real Housewives! I've actually always liked Kyle but only 2 episodes in this season and I'm feeling differently toward her already. Kim & Brandi are cracking me up and I'm glad Lisa R is on the show too!
