Following last week’s drama on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which brought us yet another breakdown courtesy of Taylor Armstrong, Camille Grammer is now speaking out about the role her employee BFF Dedra Whitt played in party from hell!

In her Bravo blog, Camille states that Dedra was just being a good friend to her though she later adds that Dedra’s actions did make the situation worse.

“Dedra got involved even though I would never ask her or willingly put her in any position to do so. When Dedra saw everything that was going on she just wanted to help. She is my best friend. She was there for me with the situation with Taylor and has been with me through everything with my divorce and my ongoing custody battle… Dedra got emotional that night watching Taylor’s behavior towards me and thought it was unfair. That’s why she came to my defense,” wrote Camille.

Camille goes on to admit that while Dedra had good intentions, she might have made things worse. “At one point, I remember trying to ‘shush’ Dedra because the more Dedra pushed, it became more apparent that Taylor did not want to participate. It just exacerbated the situation and made it more volatile rather than being helpful. I know Dedra’s intentions were good. I know she wanted to help and was hoping that we could have some resolution… I feel bad she got into the mix, but she got emotional when Taylor made a few snide remarks and was being dismissive of my feelings,” Camille added.

Brandi Glanville also shared her two cents, especially why she decided to kick Taylor out of her party in her Bravo blog. First, Brandi reveals that Taylor came to the party anticipating drama and denies being interested in Kyle’s husband Mauricio.

Brandi writes, “Prior to the party Taylor was already talking about having Kyle as “backup.” I’m not sure what she was anticipating. If Taylor had so many reservations about seeing Camille, and knew full well that Camille was going to be at this small gathering in Malibu, she should have stayed home… Kyle immediately had to insult me, even after I complimented her marriage, by talking behind my back about my dress being slightly sheer. FYI: Kyle I had a super-hot husband for a long time too, and I was still able to take a compliment about his looks and adoration for me when one was given. In no way do I have any interest in Mauricio, or any married man for that matter.”

Brandi also reveals why she didn’t invite Dana Wilkey and comments on Kyle’s need for attention. She continues, “I invited Kim to my party (not that i thought she would come) as a gesture of peace and a step towards starting over. However, I did not invite Dana because I just wanted to get to know the other women without all her nonsense and name dropping… So I think we were all having a good time, and my friend Linda was trying to teach us to belly dance, but then Kyle has to take over and do the splits and crawl on the ground and generally disrespect what Linda was there to do.”

As for why she decided to kick Taylor out of the party, Brandi states: “Although I didn’t know what the fight was about really at that point, I had bonded with Camille so I felt protective of her… I tried to diffuse the situation to the best of my capabilities at the time, which admittedly were not 100 percent. Someone had to leave. It was my party and Taylor was completely out of control. I wanted Camille to stay and she came with Dedra, so I asked Taylor to go before things got even more out of hand.”

And finally, Star magazine is reporting that Brandi and her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian might be heading for an ugly custody battle. The reason? Brandi, 39, is threatening to have Eddie, 38, jailed because he plans to take their sons Mason, 8, and Jake, 4, to Aspen during Christmas with his former mistress new wife LeAnn Rimes.

Brandi is reportedly claiming the trip violates their custody agreement though it “clearly states that he can’t take them out of the country without permission but can take them out of state,” according to a source. “Eddie feels she can’t be reasoned with,” adds the source.

Moving to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH airing on Bravo at 9/8c. On the 15th episode this season titled ‘A Book, a Bachelorette, and a Breakdown,’ it’s a sure bet in Las Vegas when Lisa and Taylor infiltrate Sin City for a bachelorette party. Elsewhere, Adrienne ushers the other ladies to her casino.

The Bachelor 16 Cast Photo
With just three weeks until the premiere of The Bachelor season 16, ABC has released the photos of the 25 contestants vying for Ben Flajnik’s heart!

On the season opener, Ben, 29, a winemaker from Sonoma, meets his 25 potential soul mates as he begins his search for “true love.” And in a twist, Ben is taken aback on the first night when Sheryl, a sprite senior citizen, steps out of the limo and confesses she is madly in love with him. But according to the rumor mill, it appears Sheryl was simply there to introduce her granddaughter to Ben.

The ABC press release promises us some more interesting characters such as: “Erika, the young law student, informs Ben that the verdict is in and he is convicted of being sexy. Emily, the germ conscious epidemiologist, doesn’t miss a beat, quickly sanitizing both herself and Ben before grabbing the season’s first kiss. And in a questionable move, Anna decides that Ben should only get a look at her before she struts right by him and straight into the mansion. But what is her real motive? Lindzi arrives on horseback in time to intrigue Ben and capture his attention. And finally, Jenna, a New York blogger, breaking down into tears over early drama with fellow bachelorette Monica.”

The new season of The Bachelor returns to ABC on Jan. 2 (8/7c).

After weeks of speculation, the Los Angeles Lakers have finally traded Khloe Kardashian’s husband Lamar Odom!

The trade, which occurred late Saturday, will have Lamar playing for the Dallas Mavericks. Khloe, 27, a Los Angeles native, took to her Twitter page to express her mixed emotions about the trade.

“We are all sad but positive energy gets you farther then negative,” tweeted Khloe to a fan, before adding, “I am curious as to how I am the cause for any trade? LOL Some people just say anything behind their computer screens.”

She later tweeted: “I am blessed and happy anywhere as long as I am with my family! God is great!! Blessed beyond words! I love ALL of my dolls!”

The second season of Khloe & Lamar is currently filming so it’s likely we will see this trade drama play out on the show.

In other news, the Kardashians simply refuse to quit their very transparent attempts to villainize Kris Humphries.

The latest is now a publicity stunt claim by Kim Kardashian’s lackey friend/publicist Jonathan Cheban to TMZ that he was attacked by a Kris Humphries fan in New York City.

To make this story more believable, Jonathan made certain to set it up rather nicely by first telling TMZ on Friday that he hired extra security because he was being threatened by fans of Kris.

According to Jonathan, the threats began after he threatened to sue Kris for $5 million for apparently calling him “gay” on an upcoming episode of E!’s Kourtney and Kim Take New York. It allegedly led to some Kris “fanatics” threatening Jonathan, who insists he is far from being “gay.”

Last month, camp Kardashian accused Kris of “bullying” Jonathan. “Midway through the season, Kris starts bullying Kim’s best friend, Jonathan Cheban, about his sexuality,” shared a pal of Kim. “Jonathan isn’t gay, but Kris accuses him of being gay and criticizes him for it in a really homophobic way. Jonathan is really upset.” But uh isn’t it a tad homophobic to sue someone for calling you gay???

Fast forward to Sunday (the same day a new episode of Kimmie’s show was set to air on E!) and a photo of Jonathan being attacked with flour by an alleged Kris fan made its way onto TMZ. Sources close to the very heterosexual Jonathan insist it was done by a Kris fan because the flour attacker yelled, “This is for Kris Humphries!” before dousing him with flour.

TMZ adds that the cops were, however, unable to locate the attacker, who was able to get to Jonathan despite the so called extra security he hired. Even better, the attacker managed to mysteriously predict the time and place Jonathan, arguably a Z-list celebrity, would be!

Even more interesting, the photo, which was sent to TMZ did NOT come from a paparazzi agency, meaning it was submitted to TMZ by Jonathan an individual.

Despite the obviously ridic publicity stunt, a rep for Kris tells TMZ, Kris “would never condone hateful and unacceptable behavior like that to anyone, in any situation.”

The good news is in reading the TMZ comments, it appears majority of the readers are NOT buying the story and believe it was all a set up. Smart readers I tell ya! And since when does Kris Humphries have “fanatics”?

The picture of the “flour attack” is below as well as two photos of Kim, and her very authentic and not surgically enhanced at all butt, with Jonathan from 2009!

The 19th season of the Amazing Race ended last night as new winners were crowned following a somewhat dramatic season.

In the end, engaged couple Ernie Halvorsen and Cindy Chiang came out victorious, crossing the finish line at Atlanta’s historic Swan House to take home the $1 million prize.

Ernie and Cindy’s win was a bit surprising as the couple had spent most of the season being stuck in second place. Front runners, Jeremy Cline and Sandy Draghi, who actually started the race in first place ended up coming in second.

Jeremy and Sandy lost their lead in the competition when their clue instructed them to head to a residence once known as “The Dump.” Failing to do their own research, the duo simply relied on a guy in a truck who sent them to the wrong location — a furniture store called “The Dump.”  On the other hand, Ernie and Cindy found the right location when they arrived at “The Dump” — an apartment in which “Gone with the Wind” was written.

Project manager Ernie, 29, and his fiancée Cindy, 30, a brand manager, won the competition following a journey that took them through 40,000 miles, four continents, 10 countries and 20 cities.

“This has been the best premarital counseling that you could ever get,” said Cindy following the win. “I can’t think of anything better in life than to have a husband that could be so supportive and caring even when I’m at my low.”

The couple revealed they plan on using the $1 million prize to start a charity to help those in need around the world. Former NFL player Marcus Pollard and his wife Amani came in third.

After years of being a talentless famewhore who hardly ever gave back, Kim Kardashian has been feeling a whole lot more charitable in recent weeks!

Following her quickie divorce and the public backlash that followed, Kimmie participated in a photo op around Thanksgiving to feed the poor homeless people of Los Angeles. Fast forward to today and Kimmie Kakes and pimpmomager Kris Jenner have orchestrated another publicity stunt to make Kimmie more likable.

According to PEOPLE, Kimmie Kakes and pimpmomma Kris are currently “giving back” in Haiti. Kim is said to be in the country with the We Advance charity group and actress Maria Bello, who co-founded the organization.

“She connected with Mario Bello and is there with Maria’s foundation and also with her mom,” a source close to Kim tells PEOPLE. “Her intention was always to take the end of the year to focus on some of the other things that are important to her and this trip was one.” Hasn’t Haiti suffered enough with the earthquakes? No word yet on when Kris and Kimmie plan to release photos of her Haiti visit to the press! You know it’s coming.

Kim’s image rehab charitable visit to Haiti is right on time because she is scheduled to host a New Year’s Eve party in Las Vegas. An invite for that is below. Tickets cost a mere $200 per person for general admission.

Moving on to Kim, 31, and her ex Reggie Bush, 26. According to new reports, the two have been talking again and are even considering getting back together.

“Reggie reached out to Kim via text shortly after she announced she was filing for divorce to make sure she was okay,” a Kardashian family friend tells Life & Style. “They’ve stayed in touch ever since, texting and talking. Kim was Reggie’s first love. He knows she’s hurting right now, but when the time is right, he’ll swoop in and take care of her.”

Sources add that since their breakup in March, 2010 (Reggie dumped Kim by the way) he has been pining for her and hoping for a chance to get her back. Riiiight. “He’s concerned about her; he’s making sure she’s holding it together,” shares a friend. “Reggie always knew that it wasn’t going to work [between Kim and Kris], so he’s been waiting and watching.”

Meanwhile, following Kris Humphries’ filing for an annulment on the basis of fraud, sources close to Kim now claim to OK! magazine that she has been crying every day since Kris’ filing. Poor Kimmie Kakes, perhaps she can use one of the bills from the $17 mil she made off the wedding to wipe away her tears.

“I saw her recently and she’s really shook up,” an unnamed relative tells Ok!. “The family is worried about how angry Kris is and how far he will go.”

The sources go on to insult our intelligence insist that Kim’s tears go way beyond Kris damaging her brand. “Kim isn’t superhuman. People seem to have this idea that because she’s on TV, she’s some sort of robot,” says the insider. “She’s just been through this awful breakup and she’s hurting. Now what Kris is doing is making it hurt that much more. The truth is that she’s extremely emotional and very sensitive and she is having a very hard time dealing with all this.”


Above is a screen shot of a tweet made by Kim on Oct. 31, the same day she filed for divorce. And just two weeks ago she was tweeting away her excitement over the premiere of her E! show Kourtney and Kim Take New York, you know, the same show that chronicles the demise of her marriage. I’ll let you do the math!

Finally, Barbara Walters is revealing that people were very upset with her decision to include the Kardashians in her 10 Most Fascination People of 2011 — set to air Dec. 14.

“The whole idea of this program that we’ve been doing for 18 years is to pick people who have made an impact and whether you like or don’t like it the Kardashians were a controversial choice,” Barbara told the Hollywood Life. “We did Jersey Shore last year and no one objected. [The Kardashians] strike a different chord.”

Barbara was also asked if she thinks the Kardashians’ fame will last. “I really don’t know what the future is for the Kardashians,” she says. “What happens next in their future and life I can’t say.” Me thinks that Barbara’s nice way of saying NO!

According to a new report, Khloe Kardashian continues to remain desperate for a baby.

Khloe, 27, graces the latest cover of UsWeekly magazine, which reveals she is currently undergoing invitro while putting major pressure on herself to get pregnant.

While Kourtney recently revealed she is pregnant with her second child, Khloe and her NBA hubby Lamar Odom, 32, have been doing everything they can to get pregnant since tying the knot two years ago. “Kourtney’s news just highlights that Khloe’s not pregnant yet,” a source told UsWeekly. “She’s thrilled for Kourtney, but she’s really sensitive. And it’s hard to see your sister get something you want so badly.”

UsWeekly reports that Khloe’s desperation for a baby led her to start in vitro fertilization back in September. Khloe has reportedly had several consultations about IVF, began taking prenatal vitamins and is currently prepping for the procedure, which costs $10,000 to $15,000 per treatment.

And in true Kardashian fashion, UsWeekly adds that Khloe’s fertility woes will be a key plotline on the next season of her E! reality hit Khloe & Lamar, which is currently filming and will premiere early next year. Khloe will reportedly open up about the stress of trying to conceive. “I know she’s ‘the funny sister,’ but she’s the kind of person who does get really stressed out,” says the source.

As we speculated this week, perhaps Khloe is already pregnant. She appears to be sporting a baby bump in recent photos, which would also explain her recent weight gain. Plus if Khloe’s pregnant, it would further explain why pimpmomager Kris Jenner had Kourtney announce her pregnancy at just 9 weeks. This would allow Khloe to announce her own pregnancy soon, garnering her individual attention as well as more money for her announcement!

Meanwhile news broke yesterday that Khloe’s hubby Lamar, who plays for the Los Angeles Lakers, was going to be traded to New Orleans. The deal, however, fell through with sources close to Khloe telling TMZ today that she is ready and willing to move anywhere for Lamar. It’s still a great possibility that Lamar will be traded out of Los Angeles.

Finally, Kris Humphries appeared on GMA today with his mother Debra Humphries, in his first interview since Kim Kardashian filed for divorce on Oct. 31.

In the VERY awkward interview, Kris, 26, was asked numerous questions about Kim and his divorce, while he gave the same response over and over again simply stating he wanted to move forward and focus on basketball and his charity.

“Through everything, I’m just focused on family and preparing for basketball,” said Kris. “For me, it’s just, certain things happen in life and you’ve got to move forward. I’m excited to be where I’m at right now, with the NBA season coming up.”

When asked about his new E! show Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Kris made it clear he is NOT a fan. “The only things I really watch on TV of myself is playing basketball. I’ve never been someone to really watch the show on TV or anything like that,” he said. “I don’t really play into all the gossip.”

TMZ is now reporting that Kris is “livid” and felt ambushed by Good Morning America. Kris is claiming he was under the impression that the interview would not focus on his split from Kimmie!

Sources close to Kris tell TMZ he knew he would be asked about the divorce during the sit-down, but didn’t expect to be grilled like he was. Adding that the only reason he agreed to do the interview was to promote his charity work as well as support his mother’s cooking segment on the show. Kris is now “livid” over the way the interview turned out.

However, GMA is calling foul on Kris’ claims saying no pre-show deal was made to limit the interview. Love ya Kris but did you really think GMA wanted to talk to you about charity work and your mother’s cooking abilities??? Le sigh. It has also been widely reportedly that the prenup, signed by both Kim and Kris, prohibits them from spilling the beans in the event of a divorce.

According to a new report, Taylor Armstrong’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills castmates are “disgusted” with her decision to release a tell-all book just months after the tragic suicide of husband Russell Armstrong.

A source tells the Hollywood Life blog that Taylor’s costars think it’s “horrible” that she’s writing her book so soon after Russell’s passing.

“When Taylor announced she was going to write a book about her supposed abusive relationship with her husband everyone thought it was just disgusting,” says the source. “It’s just too soon and the cast just thinks this speaks volumes about who Taylor is at heart.”

As for Taylor, she has stated in the past that she is writing the memoir, titled Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss and Finding the Courage Within, to help other women in abusive relationships. In fact, in a statement given to ABC news today, Taylor states the only reason she’s releasing her book now is because Russell is no longer here, citing she would have been too scared to do so if he was still alive.

“I wish I could have ben able to tell my story before now… But, until my husband Russell’s suicide, I didn’t feel safe to bring my story into the light, to help all battered and abused women, and men, and aid them in their struggle,” says Taylor.

Taylor continues, “I discussed my book Monday night for the first time on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live. The overwhelming response from viewers and their outpourings of support has been gratifying. From the bottom of my heart, I believe if my book can help others find the courage to deal with the pain and fear of their abusive relationships, I will have made a real difference in their lives.”

All righty. Moving on to Kim Richards, who is currently getting help in rehab. A source tells PEOPLE that Kim, 47, is seeking treatment for alcohol abuse and “other problems.”

“Kim has been to rehab more than once before,” says the source, “but every time is a new time, and everyone just hopes this sticks and that she gets the help she needs. It’s serious.”

The source who reveals Kim has been “erratic” also adds that she is no longer living with her boyfriend Ken Blumenfeld and that she was pretty much homeless before rehab.

“He’s not in the picture. No one really knows what the deal was with them, but Kim doesn’t live with Ken,” the source says. “She’s basically homeless, staying with various friends. She doesn’t have a home base. It’s not unusual for people to not hear from her for long stretches of time. It’s been that way for years.”

Kim’s family is, however, “relieved she’s getting help,” states the source. “She has lots of issues. She needs help.”

The Rumor Fix blog adds that Kim is at the Betty Ford Center near Palm Springs. She will reportedly be in the program for 30 days at a cost of $27,900. Could Bravo be footing the bill? After all, it was reported this week that the network forced Kim to get help.
