However E! Online has now been able to officially confirm the entire cast. The biggest surprise would have to be Camille Grammer, wife of popular actor Kelsey Grammer. And as we previously reported, Paris Hilton’s aunts — Kyle Richards and Kim Richards — are also a part of the cast.
The above photo was taken when the cast attended a Lakers vs. Kings game last week.
So will these Beverly Hills be able to give us the drama we are used to? Well the jury still seems to be out on that as a source tells E! News, “Everyone seems very happy to be on the show. They are all really very nice. Lisa is hilarious. She has that dry, British humor.” It seems the Beverly Hills ladies are about to take the Housewives franchise into Hollywood.
PHOTOS AND BRIEF BIOS OF EACH OF THE LADIES IS BELOW –
Camille Grammer – 41-year-old former Playboy model and married to Frasier star Kelsey Grammer for 13 years. The Hollywood couple have a 9-year-old daughter, Mason, and a 6-year-old son, Jude.

Life & Style magazine also reported that Bethenny and her fiance Jason Hoppy will be getting married on March 28, which is next Sunday. With the wedding so close, Bethenny reveals she still has a lot of planning to do. “I have to get through the planning — there are a lot of details that I don’t really have time for.”
Bethenny also gushes about her fiance Jason, “Jason’s the most supportive man. He’ll be Mr. Mom. I’ll come home, and he’ll be reading What to Expect When You’re Expecting. I’ll ask, ‘How big is the baby? Let me know when it’s the size of a watermelon.’ He’s amazing.”
The question on everyone’s mind seems to be which of her co-stars will be in attendance? As it has been widely publicized, Bethenny has feuded quite a bit with some of her fellow housewives. New housewife on the block, Jennifer Gilbertrevealed to HollywoodLife that “I know Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps are not going.” Jennifer continued, “I know Ramona is going, but I don’t know if anyone else is going.” Jennifer also confirms she wasn’t invited.
Bethenny has declined to talk about which housewives will be attending her wedding. She also denied a NYPost story that claimed she moved up her wedding date just so it could be televised. “I find it so funny,” Bethenny told Zap2it. “You don’t have to be Angela Lansbury to figure out if my show is called ‘Bethenny Getting Married,’ that maybe there might be a wedding on the show. If it was called “Bethenny’s Climbing a Mountain,” hopefully I would arrange to be on a mountain.”
And there you have it, Bethenny will be tying the knot this Sunday.
The New Jersey Star-Ledger is reporting that some of the New Jersey housewives including Teresa Guidice and Jacqueline Laurita (photographed above) decided to have dinner with Danielle’s ex husband Kevin Maher, who also happens to be the man behind “Cop Without A Badge” — the book that outed Danielle’s past as an escort and drug user.
Kevin is the man on the far right, and the man on the far left is Charles Kipps, who also helped write the book. Also at this dinner were Joe Giudice, Chris Laurita and Albie Manzo, the son of Caroline Manzo.
So what was the point of all this? Well it was all apparently to get answers about Danielle’s past. Danielle had denied being a “coke whore” and claimed Kevin “brutalized and terrorized” her during their brief marriage. A claim Kevin doesn’t deny, saying, “I did hit her. I’m not proud of it.”
Well after this dinner, Jacqueline tweeted, “everything was answered, i have clarity. moving on now!” She later added, “Just so this talk of crazy ends. Ex took a polygraph to clear his name and crazy is a big time liar. That’s my closure. Let’s all move on.” Not to be outdone by Jacque, Teresa also tweeted the following – “omg what am i hearing, music to my ears…she is certifiable…”
Bethenny, who is now 7 months pregnant, spoke to UsWeekly and revealed she has no regrets when it comes to her words and actions regarding Jill.
“I don’t regret anything I’ve said,” she told UsWeekly Tuesday at the NYC premiere of The Bounty Hunter. “If she’s saying that I told her she needs to get a hobby, then that’s accurate. That’s what I said. I don’t regret anything I’ve said.”
So will two will ever reconcile? “I tried to establish relationships under a microscope and it didn’t work,” Frankel explains. “Most of my friends I’ve had for 20 years, so meeting all the housewives and trying to form lasting relationships is challenging.” As for Jill, “That one is no exception.”
When asked who was the better singer between her fellow housewives — Kim Zolciak and LuAnn De Lesseps — Bethenny shared, “I think LuAnn is a better singer but Kim is a better performer. Kim is so fiery. She really puts on a show. Their styles are different. We’ll see if LuAnn blossoms with it.”
Thoughts – Last night’s episode was pretty good. While I’m not particularly Team anyone when it comes to Bethenny and Jill, I do think it was very telling that Jill would save Bethenny’s voicemail and play it for others, especially three months after the fact. That said a lot about her in my opinion.

Kate Gosselin is going to have to work a little bit harder to fight off those pesky diva rumors that continue to plague her.
Insiders from Dancing With The Stars had accused Kate of acting like a diva by refusing to interact with the other dancers and stars on the show. The Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom appeared on The View this week and denied that claim.
DancerMark Ballas, who is the partner of Shannen Doherty, is however singing a different tune. “I’m not the type of person to judge…” said Mark to UsWeekly “And I’m not going to be like ‘I don’t like [Kate]…”
“But, I mean, she’s pretty, you know, standoffish, which is kind of weird.” Mark continued, “I don’t really know her, but when I met her she wasn’t kind of like, ‘hello’ or anything. I say ‘hey,’ and she was like ‘oh hey.’ I was like, ‘Okay!'”
Mark added, “She has a great partner, Tony [Dovolani] who is a dear friend of mine, so I’m sure he will whip her into shape. Whatever you can get out of that!”
Well that didn’t last long. The Hillsmedia whore star Heidi Montag has fired her new psychic manager Aiden Chase, just a week after hiring him reports PEOPLE magazine.
“I have decided to part ways with Mr. Chase both as a manager and as a psychic and will scrutinize my business decisions more carefully in the future,” Heidi, 23, told PEOPLE. “I will now be managing my own career as a strong and independent woman.”
Heidi continues, “Unfortunately recent behavior by Mr. Chase on set of both Just Go With It starring Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston and Nicole Kidman and [on] The Hills have made me question this decision.”
According to “sources,” Heidi was “horrified” when he showed up on set, “demanding a significant portion of her Hills money.”
The “source” Spencer Pratt also adds that when Chase, 40, was on the Hills’ set, he tried to “move onto Audrina [Patridge],” whom he not only offered his healing/spiritual services but also asked to be her manager, the insider tells Us.
Chase however defends himself, saying, “Heidi invited me to the set of Just Go With It and the terms of our financial agreement are in line with standard manager/talent agreements,” he says. “I spoke with Audrina Patridge briefly when I was on the set of The Hills with Heidi recently, but never discussed being her manager.”
In other Heidi news, she recently filmed a scene for The Hills’ with some of her co-stars, photos of that below –
