Puppygate – it’s the greatest mystery since the pyramids, and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills storyline that’s dominated season nine. The mystery surrounds an innocent puppy, Lucy Lucy Apple Juice, who was given to Dorit Kemsley by Vanderpump Dogs. Somehow, the puppy ended up in a kill shelter and the story was suspiciously leaked to the rest of the Housewives, and soon to the media. All fingers point to Lisa Vanderpump (LVP) as the puppeteer behind it all, but it’s also clear that Teddi Mellencamp isn’t innocent in this either. Insert testimony from the Vanderpump Dogs staff, and now it’s a big mess. Confused? Not to worry. We’ll use evidence from season nine to explain Puppygate and which RHOBH Housewife is to blame.
