First up is Kyle Richardswho revealed this week that she, like many many other housewives before her, is planning to pen her first book!
Kyle, who signed a deal with popular publisher HarperOne, reveals her book will have her sharing advice, sharing secrets for creating a happy marriage and also what it takes to be a responsible parent.
“I plan to focus on how I manage my crazy, busy life and will write about all my passions: My husband, family, work and the joy of juggling it all,” said Kyle to Variety. “I’m excited to share my favorite tips with fans.” For the time being, Kyle is busy filming the second season of the RHOBH which began filming in March and will reportedly air in October.
In other BH news, Camille Grammer is talking about her divorce once again, and this time, she is sharing that her two kids will not appear on the upcoming season of the show. The reason? Her ex-husband Kelsey Grammer refused to sign a release to allow Bravo to film the kids… a la Simon Barney.
“My ex wouldn’t sign the release, so you are not going to see my children,” Camille told E! News. “Mason really wanted to be a part of the show.”
Camille reveals her daughter Mason, 9, is upset about not being able to film but adds that her son Jude, 6, isn’t disappointed. “My son is too young and well, he’s a boy,” she added.
And while Camille would not confirm or deny the news of Brandi Glanville joining the cast, she does share her thoughts on Brandi. “She’s fun, she’s a hoot. She kind of tells it like it is,” says Camille before adding that she is able to relate to Brandi, who also suffered a very public break up after her actor husband Eddie Cibrian dumped her to be with his now homewrecker wife LeAnn Rimes.
“I feel bad for what she’s gone through,” said Camille. “We’ve gone through something very similar.” According to reports and tweets, it appears Camille and Brandi have hit it off and are good friends.

RadarOnline is reporting that Taylor, pictured above with husband Russell Armstrong on June 12 as they celebrated her 40th birthday, is battling with her castmates and causing tension during filming.
“Taylor is telling the other women exactly what she is thinking, and she isn’t holding anything back,” says a source. “Taylor has had some tense moments with Adrienne Maloof especially. Adrienne was completely taken aback by Taylor because she usually tried to avoid conflict. There has also been some drama between new housewife Brandi Glanville and Taylor.”
The article then goes on to claim that Taylor spent the first season avoiding confrontation and being a peacemaker. Yes, I’m scratching my head on that one as well. RadarOnline adds that since being in therapy this year, Taylor is now learning to be more assertive and speak her mind.
“Taylor has been getting counseling, which will be featured on the show this year, and she has been encouraged to stand-up for herself, and not let people, including her husband, Russell take advantage of her,” the source adds.
So when can we expect the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 2, which is currently filming, to premiere? The insider reveals Bravo “has plans to put the show on the air by October of this year.”
Meanwhile, Taylor came out last month attributing her very skinny frame to simply trying out some diet pills her husband brought home. Some of you wondered what those pills were, and according to Taylor’s twitter page, the diet supplement is called RegeneSlim. “They gave me lots of energy but not jitters. I do drink caffine though so, not sure about other people’s “jitter response.”” tweeted Taylor.
Kelsey wanted Spencer and her new husband to vacation at his posh Hawaii estate but Camille went to block that from happening citing she’s the one who’s been spending a lot of time at the house with their 2 young kids, and Kelsey hasn’t been there for a long time.
If only it ended there as Camille also accuses Spencer of possibly being a spy. Camille states that if Spencer uses the house, she would have access to a lot of personal items/documents related to the divorce and might just steal it. How about taking out the important docs from the home? Just sayin’.
“I am very concerned that Spencer will have access to my personal documents and papers and that these will get read by Spencer and/or turned over to [Kelsey] and his attorneys,” Camille states in the declaration.
It seems Camille won this round as the judge ruled third parties are not allowed to use any of the Grammers’ homes unless both Kelsey and Camille sign off on it. It also appears this might be a tit for tat situation as Camille also stated Kelsey did not allow her to vacation in one of their other homes in the Hamptons.
This all stems from the couple’s bitter divorce battle. Though they are technically divorced, they have yet to divide up their assets. Plus things recently escalated when they both filed for custody of their two kids together.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? IS CAMILLE WRONG FOR BANNING KELSEY’S DAUGHTER FROM USING THE HOME?
In a recent interview on Ryan Seacrest’s Kis-FM Radio Show, Camille, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, expressed her frustrations regarding the custody battle between her and ex-hubby Kelsey, both of whom have filed for full custody of their two children Mason, 9, and Jude, 6.
Camille stated, “It’s been a tough couple weeks.” Even more shocking are Camille’s allegations that Kelsey is only interested in obtaining full custody of their son, Jude, “Kelsey wants to split his two children with Camille — taking his son to live with him and his new wife in Chicago, and leaving his daughter to live with her mother in California.” Yikes! However while Kelsey did send a letter back in April about wanting to split up custody, he ended up filing for custody of both children in May.
Camille, however, would like full custody as well and her RHOBH co-star Kyle Richards agrees that’s how it should be, stating: “They belong with their mom. I’m with her on this.” Further proving that the Camille/Kyle feud that dominated last season is over, Kyle defended Camille against Kelsey in a video released by RumorFix, commenting: “I think he’s done enough damage, he needs to leave her alone now.”
Court papers filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court state the Camille feels Kelsey’s reasons for seeking full custody are an attempt to: “create a false impression to the media and to wrongfully disparage her.” Well, after last season’s RHOBH I’m not sure Kelsey has to stoop so low to encourage any character assignations! Andy Cohen already beat you to the punch, Frasier!
Despite all the recent issues, Camille remains hopeful that she and Kelsey can have an amicable relationship: “I’m really trying to reach out to him and I think it’s very important for us to be cordial to one another to raise our children properly. For me it’s all about our kids and what’s good for them and stability, to know that they’re loved. Hopefully we’ll work toward some kind of agreement on this.”
So what do you think? Do you think Kelsey is really only seeking full custody to ruin Camille’s reputation? Surprised Kyle is defending Camille?
First Camille, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, decided to seek full custody of her two kids with Kelsey on Thursday. This comes weeks after Kelsey originally filed to get primary custody of the children, Mason, 9, and Jude, 6.
In the court papers, Camille claims Kelsey’s filings were “done in order to create a false impression to the media and to wrongfully disparage” her.
Also in the court filing, Camille aims to prevent her kids from spending the summer with Kelsey away from California. “Jude has repeated kindergarten twice,” the documents state. “He is now working with tutors so that he can enter first grade at a public elementary school beginning in the Fall of 2011. In order to get into first grade Jude will have to do a math study program for the entire summer in Los Angeles.”
Things took an uglier turn when sources close to Camille informed TMZ that Kelsey only wanted primary custody of his son, and not his daughter with Camille. Kelsey’s lawyer denied the report to TMZ yesterday.
However, Camille’s camp sent TMZ a document this morning, from April, in which Kelsey does indeed ask for their son Jude to come live with him, while Mason stays with Camille. “Kelsey proposes … Kelsey shall have primary physical custody of Jude and Camille shall have primary physical custody of Mason,” the document states.
Kelsey’s rep, Stan Rosenfield, then told TMZ, “Despite the fact that those connected with Camille Grammer seem to be hand delivering confidential documents to TMZ and other media outlets, we will continue not to make public statements about their private matters which can and apparently does beg for misinterpretation.”
As of the moment, it appears the case will go to trial. The Grammers currently have a temporary arrangement in place until July 2.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST WITH CAMILLE & KELSEY?
Taylor reveals that her marriage has never been better, despite the stories that say otherwise. She says, “Russell and I are together and in love and happier than ever.” Taylor attributes her husband as being the person who made her realize her dieting had gone too far, and it was with his support she was able to recognize the “unhealthy extremes” she went to in order to lose weight. Read the interview exerpt below to see what caused her rapid weight loss and how she was able to change these habits to regain her healthy physique.
How did it all start?
Russell brought home diet supplements two months ago because someone he knows wanted him to look at the company. We didn’t discuss the business end of it, but I started taking the supplements without him knowing. In the back of my mind I didn’t think they would even work, so I wasn’t worried — they were all natural and I thought you had to take prescription drugs to really ever lose weight.
Why did you think you needed them?
You know how it is as a woman; I was feeling my clothes were tight. I get everything tailored to fit me just right, so even if I gain just a few pounds my clothes don’t fit. I’d gained some weight because I was so busy with the show, being a wife and mother and running my start-up business. We went to charity events at night and I was eating unhealthy “event food” or drive-thru food, so I felt I needed to lose some weight. When I was taking the supplements, I had so much energy and wasn’t hungry — I thought it was great at first.
Has Russell ever made you feel self-conscious about your body?
Not at all. As a matter of fact, like most men, he likes me best when I am voluptuous. Recently we were looking at photos and he pointed out one and said I looked so lovely in it. I laughed as I told him: “I was five months pregnant there!”
When did you know you’d gone too far?
It was Russell who got me to admit the truth. He saw I wasn’t eating much and that I was too thin. I wasn’t weighing myself or taking my measurements, but when he said it I knew he was right.
Okay, so Taylor and Russell are more in love than ever, and in two months herbal supplements caused her to shed a ridiculous amount of weight. Can I get the name of these “supplements” and directions to the back alley where they are sold? Kidding aside, I think supplements alone is a slightly odd reason for such a drastic body change. Of course, all of the stresses involved in being a reality star (NOT to be confused with the stresses of being in a bad marriage with a robot, because She. Isn’t.), could certainly take their toll on a person’s lifestyle, eating habits, and frame.
