Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards is speaking out about the recent drama on the show involving her costar and friend Taylor Armstrong.

In her latest blog with Bravo, Kyle reveals the situation/confrontation involving Taylor was “very difficult” because no one wanted to put her in harm’s way.

First Kyle reveals her reasons for not defending pal Lisa Vanderpump, though she wouldn’t have needed to defend Lisa had she not been talking smack about Lisa with Taylor to begin with! Kyle wrote: “Although, Lisa wanted me to step in more, we were okay. I honestly did not want to be involved in another argument. I was still recovering from Game Night. The last thing I wanted to do was get in the middle of someone else’s fight.”

Kyle then sort of makes excuses for her comment about Lisa ‘preying on the weak.’ She writes, “In the episode when I had my séance, Taylor came over to my house to say she was upset with Lisa. We had a conversation on my bed where she told me that she was “scared of Lisa” and that she was intimidated by her. I have never felt that way about Lisa, but I am a strong person. I told her she should be stronger with Lisa. I said “maybe she preys on weak people.” I think that “prey” was too strong of a word. That conversation wasn’t about Lisa. I was trying to help Taylor be a stronger person in general, to have her speak up for herself — in all areas of her life. I know it bothered Lisa that I said that, and I do feel bad about that. I am not premeditated in what I am going to say. That means there will be times I regret saying certain things.”

Kyle also touched on Taylor’s confrontation turned intervention: “Later Adrienne, Camille, and I had dinner and discussed the tea party . I know Camille was worried that Taylor was upset with her. Camille spoke the truth. Taylor was obviously concerned because it was put out in the open. However, sometimes people say things in the heat of the moment. Emotions were running high. This situation is very difficult and none of us wanted to hurt her or put her in harm’s way. Later, I told Taylor later that Camille was just saying what Taylor had told all of us.”

In a new interview with Wetpaint, Kyle revealed her sister Kim Richards is still dating and living with her boyfriend, Ken Blumenfeld. When asked about Kim’s relationship, Kyle says disapprovingly, “They are still living together and I haven’t been over there.”

In other news, according to a new report by Star Magazine, newbie Brandi Glanville lied her way onto the show! So what exactly did Brandi lie about? According to the mag, she fibbed… big time about her so called friendship with Lisa’s former houseboy housemate Cedric Martinez.

“He’s my best gay friend!” Brandi announced to reporters back in February during the above staged outing with Cedric. “I’ve known him for 16 years. We modeled together in Milan and Paris and London back in the day.”

However, a source close to Brandi reveals it was all a lie! “Bravo bigwigs set the meeting up to see if Brandi and Cedric would bond and if she could prove a worthy opponent for Lisa,” an insider reveals. “Brandi came up with the story of their ‘friendship’ over lunch, hoping it would land her on the show.”

The source adds: “It obviously worked! And it really makes you question how much else she’s lied about over the years.”

Brandi, however, denies lying to get on the show, telling the Rumor Fix blog: “I got the show because of my friendship with Adrienne Maloof, she suggested me for the show. I am friendly with Cedric but that actually almost ruined my chances to get on the show as he is not liked on RHOBH. There is an ex-friend of mine with a major drug habit to support that went to Star and sold them several stories about me that will be coming out soon.This woman is a bottom feeder and I don’t want to pay her too much attention.”

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH: On the 13th episode titled ‘Adrienne’s Fashion Show,’ Adrienne throws a lush-and-plush backyard fashion show, but brewing and stewing tension from the notorious tea party creates potential conflict. The episode airs at 9/8c tonight and a preview clip is below!

Following the very harsh backlash from the public over Kim Kardashian’s quickie marriage and divorce, it appears the only shot the Kardashians have at redeeming their image is to make Kim’s husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries, into the ultimate villain… And that folks is exactly what they are doing!

Kimmie, 31, graces the latest cover of UsWeekly magazine which paints her as the ultimate victim, even going as far as to call her husband of 72 days the “husband from hell.”

What exactly makes Kris the husband from hell? Well, according to a source close to Kimmie and the geniuses at UsWeekly, Kris would jokingly tell his wife she has a “fat ass” which apparently translates into calling her fat! Even more horrific, Kris would verbally abuse his wife by saying truly very terrible things to her such as the truth “she had no talent and her fame wouldn’t last.”

“He tried to control Kim by bringing her down,” a source tells Us magazine. “He belittled her in front of people… He’d call her stupid. It was truly sickening.” Sure he did!

“Kris was so different,” after the wedding, insists a friend of Kim’s. Adding that when Kim first met Kris, “he was fun and low-key and Kim thought, that is it.”

Kris, however, changed after the honeymoon, claims the sources close to Kim, stating whenever Kim wanted to spend time with him in front of cameras, “he would tell her she was acting like too much of a wife and ‘get over it.”

The sources go on to claim Kris, who has been unable to work due to the NBA lockout, would spend almost every night out partying while Kim was at home or working. “He started to love the life, going out every night partying,” claims Kim’s friend. “He and his friends had never experienced anything like that and started to demand free tables, free bottles (at clubs). It was embarrassing to her. She goes to bed at 9 p.m.”

When Kris partied sources claim he “was definitely not on good behavior.” The Kardashian insider adds, “When he drinks with his friends, he gets wild.” And when he went to Miami without Kim in October, a source from the club states:“The girls were bragging about dancing up on Kim’s man.”

As for poor long-suffering wife of 72 days Kim, who was not at all consumed with greed and fame by her decision to marry a man she barely knew, she is now described as being “heartbroken and living in misery”, all very evident by the kissy face photo she posted to her fans just a week ago!

“She’s trying to figure her life out,” adds the Kardashian insider. “Kim wanted the relationship to work so bad,” says another pal.

…But don’t feel bad for Kimmie just yet, while she might be “heartbroken and living in misery,” she still managed to attend the DWTS finale last week to support her brother Rob Kardashian!

Even better, the heartbroken one also managed to orchestrate a PR photo op to rehab her image when for the first time in her career, she decided to volunteer at the Los Angeles Shelter to help feed the homeless on Nov. 23. The good news is in reading the comments from other major blogs such as TMZ and UsWeekly, I would say over 95% of those comments are negative with pretty much everyone seeing this as nothing but a transparent attempt to redeem her image! Smart folks I tell ya!

More pictures of Kim volunteering below.

Finally, the new season of Kourtney and Kim Take New York aired last night on E! and while the few remaining fans of Kimmie were excited to see the show, no one was more excited than Kim Kardashian herself! Fameho Kimmie spent most of yesterday promoting the show on Twitter! Which many, I included, found very odd that any normal human being would be so gung ho and excited about a show that is focused on her marriage falling apart.

Below are some of Kimmie’s Tweets –

Very odd and disturbing… This tweet by Twitter user @activistdocgrrl kind of sums it up best: “@KimKardashian make me understand, your marriage is falling apart on TV and you are excited about people trending #KKtNY and #baby Mason?”

Last season on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, costars Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards appeared to be very close BFFs and were almost inseparable. So, when this season came along many wondered what happened to their bond as Kyle acted differently towards Lisa, badmouthing her to Taylor Armstrong, and even accusing Lisa of “preying on the weak.”

Well, it appears Lisa is now pondering what happened to that close friendship she once shared with Kyle as well. In her latest Bravo blog, Lisa finally touches on the Kyle issue and she doesn’t mince her words.

TAYLOR ARMSTRONG SPEAKS OUT ON DRAMA WITH LISA VANDERPUMP!

Lisa makes it clear she expected loyalty from Kyle and the others during Taylor’s high school confrontation, but was surprised she didn’t get that, going on to compare Kyle and the others to “rats deserting a sinking ship.” Ouch. Lisa also reveals she regrets defending Kyle when it came to the drama with Brandi Glanville.

Below are excerpts from Lisa blog –

“I expected too much. Even though you give others support, it is still impossible to assume that you will be rewarded with the same. I learned you can’t expect loyalty to be reciprocated. Take heed. It was like rats deserting a sinking ship. I don’t want anybody to “back me.” If you believe I am right, and many had voiced the same doubts as I over the last year, then speak up. Don’t do as I had mistakenly done, in defending Kyle against Brandi when I did not have an accurate picture of what had really transpired.”

Lisa goes on to reveal she was hurt to hear Kyle confirm she had been talking behind her back to Taylor –

“What did I learn from this humiliating experience, where I was insulted so publicly? I learned to pick my battles, and I realized that the person I was dealing with had greater battles of her own. Was my pride hurt? Yes, of course. Hearing Kyle confirm Taylor’s accusations against me regarding my ego was very hurtful. But it was also enlightening, as previously I had no idea what had been said between the two of them.”

Lisa also hints that while she embraced Taylor, she realizes she was likely being manipulated –

“I embraced her, confirming, much to Kyle’s surprise, that it was time to start anew and erase all the negative feelings and many unanswered questions and extend a hand of support to somebody who desperately needed it. I really believed at that time, whether or not, I was being manipulated, that her need to have me as a friend superseded all that I felt and would just continue to feed into her insecurities.”

What an interesting blog by Lisa. I still have to wonder what caused Kyle to change towards Lisa, especially when just earlier this year she was distancing herself from Taylor following the backlash and claiming they weren’t that close. Perhaps it’s jealousy on Kyle’s part or perhaps Lisa’s ego did really get overly inflated. Either way, it just seems very shady to see her talking smack about Lisa behind her back, especially to Taylor of all people.

Ryan Culberson

A day after we broke the news of Briana Wolfsmith’s elopement, more details are coming out!

For starters, did Briana inform her mother, Vicki Gunvalson of the Real Housewives of Orange County, about her plans to elope? Or did Vicki find out about her daughter’s wedding much later? Well, it appears the later might have been the case.

See Reality Tea has uncovered Briana’s marriage certificate (posted below), which shows she actually tied the knot with Marine Ryan Culberson on October 23, 2011.

This date is important as Vicki was busy announcing her daughter’s engagement on November 3! A week and a half after her daughter tied the knot in Las Vegas.

The November 3 date is, however, also significant as it’s listed as the “record date” on the marriage certificate. The “marriage date” is 10/23/2011.

So did Briana tell her mom she was engaged almost 2 weeks after tying the knot? It would appear so. Unless Vicki was simply trying to keep the Real Housewives of OC season 7 storyline under wraps.

We will find out soon. The RHOC continues to film and is scheduled to debut on Bravo very early next year. As for Vicki, she has yet to respond to our original report, simply tweeting the following yesterday: “Im thankful for my family and fans.”

Vicki and daughter Briana have had their ups and downs. Vicki even revealed on the RHOC reunion back in June that Briana “turned on” her and started being disrespectful to her after she chose to divorce husband Donn Gunvalson.

Our insider tells us the union between the recently divorced Ryan and Briana was a “quick engagement and marriage.” Below is Briana’s Vegas wedding certificate –

Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Scott Disick
Following the very public backlash for her quickie wedding and divorce, Kim Kardashian’s E! show Kourtney and Kim Take New York is scheduled to premiere this Sunday on E! (10/9c).

While many, and we mean many, fans have voiced their displeasure against the greedy fame whoring family it’s still likely many will tune in to E! Sunday night to see what actually went on in Kim’s and Kris Humphries marriage of 72 days.

Well, Reality Tea was able to get a screening of the 1-hour premiere and I must say I was quite shocked at the episode. Let’s just say pimpmomager Kris Jenner is not going to be happy with the premiere! For starters, Kris got a very fair edit (not sure how long this is going to last) on the season premiere that by the end of the episode he actually came off as the victim and Kim the villain.

Living Conditions – The premiere began with Kris and Kim just returning from their “amazing” honeymoon and the newlyweds, for some unknown reason, have decided to move in with Kim’s sister Kourtney Kardashian, and her boyfriend Scott Disick, along with their 1 year-old son Mason. Because apparently, the dream of every newlywed couple, millionaires at that, is to move in with another family.

Set Ups – It’s pretty clear from the beginning that Kim wasn’t as concerned with making her marriage work and giving it a real shot as she was concerned with creating good reality TV drama. How else can we explain her decision to do a reality show immediately after her wedding? Or her decision to agree to this living condition instead of getting to know her husband in private? Or better yet, her decision to agree to having Mason‘s playroom right next to her bedroom with Kris, much to Kris’ dismay… rightfully so I might add.

Is Kris A Jerk? – As stated above, the editing on the premiere episode was definitely more than fair to Kris though it was still unfair he had to deal with certain set ups to begin with. The biggest set up being Kourtney’s decision to invite a male yoga instructor to teach her, Kim, and some of their friends some naked yoga. Poor Kris is shown walking into his home, or hotel suite he shares with his wife and wife’s family rather, only to see a naked man teaching his wife yoga. Kris did not react too positively. He came off as a rather immature 26-year-old in my opinion, though not a jerk. It appears Kim, age 31, missed the memo that most women mature faster than men.

Real Love? – If anything, the premiere seemed to prove the couple’s love was real… well at least on Kris’ end. In many scenes, Kris was shown telling his wife Kim how “pretty” she was, how much he loved her and apologizing to her for not wanting to stay longer at a party that was being hosted for them. As for Kimmie, most of the scenes showed her with a short fuse when it came to Kris. She flew off the handle when he ruined her pedicure while he was roughhousing with her. She stated “this sh*t is not going to fly” over Kris’ messiness (he leaves his clothes everywhere). And she was very quick to snap at him over his immature behavior towards the naked male yoga instructor.

What is clear in watching the premiere is that the honeymoon between the two was definitely over, but it seems poor Kris forgot to get the memo. While Kris carried on like a lovesick puppy, it was pretty clear Kim was already over this union and having major doubts. Doubts that were likely there BEFORE her wedding, you know, the same one that netted her $17 million. Which leads to the question, why did she go through with the wedding to begin with? I’ll let you ponder that rhetorical question for a second.

It will also be interesting to see how E! edits Kris as the season goes along. After all, the network does have a lot riding on Kim and the whole Kardashian family being liked by the public.

Whether you like this family or not (believe me — I’m not a fan), I will say the premiere episode is a must see. Even I was excited to watch this to see what actually went on behind close doors. Plus, I’m curious to see how the general pubic will interpret the season premiere episode.

As for Kris, sources close to him are now telling TMZ he has no plans to sue Kim. A report came out days ago saying he was considering filing a $10 million lawsuit due to his worry over how he would be portrayed on the show plus because he has a larger role in it than originally promised.

Sources say Kris, who reportedly has a “cordial” relationship with Kim at the moment, is still worried that the show will make him look worse than he really is but also understands he has no control over it.

ETA – After finishing this write up, I came across a review by the NY Post and it appears the writer shares the same sentiment I did. Linda Stasi wrote:

“After watching a screener for Sunday night’s much-hyped “before-the-breakup” opening episode of “Kourtney & Kim take New York,” I feel as foolish as Kris Humphries must feel. In fact, the krooked Kardashian klan should have changed the title of the show to “Kourtney & Kim Take New York For a Ride.” For once — despite all the editing that went into making Kim the breakaway bride look like the slighted one — they will be exposed as the phony kreeps they are. And Humphries? He ends up looking like the dumbest schmo to ever appear on reality TV — and that’s saying a lot!

It becomes clear early on, that this poor fool thought he was really getting married. He didn’t realize he was just playing a character assigned to him by Kim. He wasn’t a husband, he was a prop!”

I predict very high ratings for the premiere of the show which will likely take a dip as the season goes along. And once Kourtney and Kim Takes New York ends, I believe this family will be done. One – they’ve done it all (sex tape, pregnancy, marriages, babies and divorce) and the public is just sick of them. Quite frankly, they simply cannot top the train wreck they have created for themselves.

Days after confirming her split from fiancé Roberto Martinez, a new report now states Ali Fedotowsky is “really upset” over breaking off her engagement.

The Bachelorette couple announced their split on Monday through a rep after 18 months and three canceled wedding dates.

According to UsWeekly, Ali has already moved out of the apartment the two shared together. “She’s actually really upset right now,” says a pal of Ali. “She’s going to be laying low for a while.” Another source adds: “They haven’t been well for a long time.”

Even worse for Ali, 27, she also has to part with the $50,000 Neil Lane diamond engagement ring gifted to her by ABC Roberto, 28.

A source tells RadarOnline that Ali promptly returned the 3-carat asscher-cut ring that she received in August 2010, back to Neil Lane within 24-hours of splitting from Roberto. Yes, previous reports have stated the Bachelor(ette) couples have to return the ring if they do not wed. Ouch!

Moving on to another Bachelor(ette) couple that called it quits. After first denying they had split, Kasey Kahl is now opening up about his recent breakup with Vienna Girardi in an interview with Star magazine,

“I know she loved me, but she has chosen a different path in life, and I am not part of the plan,” reveals Kasey, 27. After nine months of dating, the pair moved out of the Beverly Hills apartment they shared together and back to their respective hometowns.

“I couldn’t move to Florida with her — it’s not the life I want,” he explains adding that fame also tore them apart. “Being in the spotlight and on the show killed us. It brought out so many raw emotions.”
