The Real Housedogs of Beverly Hills Season Two Premiere Brings on the Dog Drama

The season two premiere brought back the pleasant and familiar faces of Giggy and Lisa Vanderpump. For you newcomers to RHOBH, Giggy is Lisa’s Pomeranian and perpetual companion. Last season, Giggy’s well documented dermatologic concerns motivated me to weigh in on his condition (see The Real Housedogs of Beverly Hills Part 2- Lisa Vanderpump, Giggy, Lollipop, Pikachu, and Buki
and Update on Giggy and Snowball).

With Giggy’s grand entrance into season two being Lisa’s “no scratching” admonishment, I wonder about current state of his skin and what medical, nutritional, supplement, and other therapies are being used to improve his pruritis (itching).

While Lisa gets her nails done at Batia & Aleeza Beauty Salon, Giggy’s itchies subside enough for him to nap his human mum’s lap. Although this scene is sinfully cute, I sure hope Giggy is not exposed to any irritating chemicals or aromas that could potentially create ocular (eye), respiratory (nose, trachea, lungs), or other body system inflammation. I also have to wonder if Giggy is every treated to a pedicure alongside Mistress (Giggy’s term for Lisa)?

Cut to Lisa’s palatial home and we see her two other dogs casually strolling with their human dad, Kenneth Todd. Unfortunately, these pooches are given minimal screen time during this episode so that Giggy can reign as the top dog in Real Housedogs of Beverly Hills realm. Yet, I suspect Giggy’s custom built throne may soon be challenged.

The Maloof-Nassif’s have a cute, petite, brown and black Morkie (hybrid of a Maltese and Yorkshire Terrier) puppy named Jackpot.

Jackpot sports a stylish black leather jacket emblazoned with the term “star” in orange. Are Adrienne and Paul sending a passive-aggressive message to Giggy, Lisa, and Ken by trying to one up Giggy’s custom canine clothing?

The real action begins when Giggy and Jackpot are seen having canine interaction typical of when two dogs first meet. We see and hear reasonable barking, growling, and thrashing of limbs, but no blood is shed nor puncture marks incurred.Photo of Jackpot and Giggy Square Off CPN

Ken lends his perspective as to the effect Giggy has on other dogs in stating “I don’t think he (Jackpot) liked Giggy very much, but not many dogs do. A lot of dogs get jealous of Giggy, get jealous of his clothing and beautiful face.”

Giggy elicits astonished looks from the RHOBH sitting at the table (at least the ladies still capable of making facial expressions), by drinking out of Adrienne’s $550 champagne glass. Camille Grammer sees the humor in the situation, while Kim Richards gasps when Todd then drinks from the same glass as Giggy. As you never know what the next hot zoonotic disease (capable of transmitting between different species…remember H1N1 Swine Flu?) will be, I suggest you don’t drink out of the water glass from which your animal companion just sipped.

I feel the most shocking moment of the evening comes when Bernie, the private chef for Adrienne and Paul, states to his servers “remember, my food first. If the dog gets in the way, step on it.” Seriously Bernie? No matter how big the occasion or seemingly important one thinks they or their food are, it is never acceptable to threaten or perform violent acts on an animal.

With the season two premiere setting the tone for another series of high dog drama, I look forward to the further adventures of The Real Housedogs of Beverly Hills.
