John Blizzard steps Behind The Rope. Yes, THAT John Blizzard. The John Blizzard who sent those infamous text messages to Teddi Mellencamp that were at the focal point of “Puppygate” and Lucy Lucy Apple Juice’s adoption by Dorit Kemsley on the classic Bravo show that we all know and love so much, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Of course, we need a few things clarified about this situation and Mr. Blizzard is here to help. A wise choice if we must say so ourselves considering John Blizzard was at the center of this drama that we saw play out week after week on RHOBH. John opened up about what was going through his mind when these texts became a major storyline, when they, whether directly or indirectly ended a many year friendship between Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards, and ended his own “relationship”, whatever that may have been, with Teddi Mellencamp. John also gives us an update on the current state of affairs at Vanderpump Dogs and fills us in on what LVP and Ken Todd have been up to. We chat with John about this past season of RHOBH, newbies Crystal Kung Minkoff and Kathy Hilton and the changing by the day divorce between and alleged criminal investigation into Erika and Tom Girardi. Speaking of Bravo shows featuring LVP, John discusses the current state of filming for the new season of Vanderpump Rules, the terminations / exits of series regulars Stassi Schroeder, Jax Taylor, Kristen Doute and Brittany Cartwright, and the multitude of spin off and new VanderShows being pitched to Bravo and other networks. John chats with us about LVP’s reaction to the recent cast changes on Pump Rules and her thoughts on the matter. A Texas native, John is also close with many of our RHOD friends. You know what that means? We discuss the last season of The Real Housewives of Dallas, his own personal off camera relationships with D’Andra Simmons and the gang and share an update about OG LeeAnne Locken. Finally, we discuss the passing of Giggy Vanderpump, who as Andy Cohen recently tweeted, was the First Pet of Bravo. John fills us in on how Ken and Lisa are handling the situation considering Giggy was like a child to them and we chat about the BravoVerse’s outpouring of emotion for the beloved dog. Kids, we are just getting started. Tune in now for this Part I explosive sit down with the one and only John Blizzard.
