While we wait for the inevitable indictments to come down (HURRY UP, BOB) I’m going to VanderYell at you about VanderPump for a while.

Lisa Vanderpump will appear in the “majority” of next season’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but she won’t confirm if she’s going to return for next season. Apparently, she is on the outs with the entire cast — even Dorit, especially Dorit. Tabloid reports have been saying for months that Lisa is pissed that Dorit adopted and then abandoned one of Lisa’s rescue dogs, a story which the rest of the cast then accused Lisa of VanderLeaking to the press. According to other sources that were definitely P.K., Dorit and P.K. adopted a dog from Lisa’s shelter (which I am still furious is not called VanderPets) but the dog bit one of their spoiled children. Dorit gave the dog to a friend and the friend is the one who eventually dumped the dog at a shelter.

First of all, FIRST OF ALL, Dorit is a monster and always has been and if Lisa leaked this story to the press: GOOD. I’M GLAD SHE DID. If the dog didn’t work out with her family, Dorit should have returned the dog to VanderPets, not hand it off to another family who hadn’t been vetted. But second of all, Lisa is the VanderGlue of that show and the rest of the ladies NEED TO APOLOGIZE TO HER IMMEDIATELY. HOW DARE YOU SERFS QUESTION THE VANDERQUEEN. WHAT, YOU THINK TEDDI IS GOING TO KEEP THE SHOW GOING? PLEASE.

Lisa told TMZ in a completely staged bit that she’s not leaving the show … yet … and that people need to worry about other things. I swear to God, Lisa Rinna, if you force me to watch Vanderpump Rules to get my Lisa Vanderpump fix …

The court is going to rule on whether or not Jim Acosta can have his press pass back today. Meanwhile, even though the news division of Fox News is standing with CNN on this, Sean Hannity is still a fucko.

Speaking of cable news, have you noticed that we’re not hearing as much about that scary caravan on the news since last week’s election? Yeah, it’s not your imagination. Cable news got bored with it because President ADD got bored with it. And this is a great example of the nightmarish media catch-22 that we are all trapped in with this administration: the news has to report on whatever nonsense the president is spewing because he’s the president and he sets the agenda. Even though it was a bunch of ridiculous racist scare-mongering that had little connection to reality, his yelling about the caravan on all those rally stops and in all of those tweets had and continue to have a real impact on actual people’s lives. There are currently thousands of U.S. troops who are going to spend Thanksgiving on the border and away from their families DOING NOTHING because this asshole is the president. So you have to report it — even though we all know it is bullshit.
