Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

It is official! No more speculations as Brandi Glanville has been confirmed as the newest housewife on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

It was reported days ago that Brandi was in talks with Bravo, but TMZ has since confirmed Brandi has signed the dotted line to join the cast. Also confirming the news are other multiple media outlets including E! News.

According to E!, Brandi beat out other hopefuls to get the gig including Ayda Field. “Bravo actually had an offer out to Robbie Williams‘ wife, actress Ayda Field, but it didn’t work out because of contractual issues,” a source reveals. “That left an open spot for Brandi, and they are excited she is joining the cast. Everyone is getting along fine…for now.”

Brandi has already began filming scenes which brings us to another question: Is Faye Resnick also a new housewife on the show? E! reports that answer is no. However, thanks to her clashing with Camille Grammer last year, Faye will “be featured more on season two of the hit show.”

And back to Brandi, who will without a doubt be a controversial character on the show. Brandi first came into the tabloid limelight back in March, 2009 when UsWeekly broke the news that her then husband, actor Eddie Cibrian, was cheating on her with country singer LeAnn Rimes, who was then married to her former backup dancer Dean Sheremet.

At first Eddie, 37, publicly denied the affair and Brandi decided to give him another chance. However Eddie and Brandi ultimately split up in July, 2009 after Brandi discovered Eddie and LeAnn, 28, were still carrying on with their sordid affair. A month later, the disgusting twosome, Eddie and LeAnn, went public with their relationship, leading up to a nasty feud between Brandi and LeAnn. Brandi did not hesitate to publicly bash both Eddie and LeAnn over their actions and for breaking up her family.

Brandi and Eddie have two sons together, Mason, 7, and Jake, 4. Fast forward to today, Eddie and LeAnn recently tied the knot on April 22, 2011, and Brandi was reportedly unhappy that her sons were not told of the nuptials in advance.

Brandi, 38, is a former model and make-up artist. She most recently made headlines for a DUI arrest last October and pled no contest to the charges on April 1. She was sentenced to 36 months probation, 3 months of alcohol education courses, and a $390 fine.

And as we reported back in February, Brandi is good friends with Cedric Martinez, the same Cedric who had a falling out with Lisa Vanderpump. Now that Brandi is a part of the cast, we can expect some guaranteed fireworks between the two ladies. In fact, Lisa made an interesting tweet yesterday. “Mmmm ….today was challenging….mmmm housewife moment..” tweeted Lisa.

TMZ is also reporting today that Eddie is making it crystal clear he doesn’t want his kids on the Real Housewives (sour grapes much?) and is even threatening legal action if their two sons appear on the show.

Brandi is reportedly pissed as she believes Eddie is imposing a huge double standard. The reason? He and the kids just appeared in a massive spread in People magazine with his co-adulterer LeAnn. Who knew Eddie had morals and standards? In the meantime, the 2nd season of the RHOBH continues to film! More photos of Brandi below -

Could Brandi Glanville become the newest housewife to join the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast? According to a new report, that is a strong possibility.

UsWeekly is reporting that Brandi, jilted ex-wife of actor Eddie Cibrian who left her in 2009 for country singer LeAnn Rimes, is still in talks with the Bravo network to join the hit franchise.

If you recall, reports came out months ago that Brandi was being considered to join the cast after she was photographed out and about with Lisa Vanderpump’s former pet house guest Cedric Martinez. That news however quickly died down after the second season of the RHOBH began filming weeks ago.

According to a source, the storyline of Brandi, a 38-year-old former model, would of course be about her issues with her ex Eddie, 37, and his new lady love/wife LeAnn, 28. “Wouldn’t you be upset with them?” asks a source close to the mom of sons Mason, 7, and Jake, 4.

Brandi is reportedly even more upset by the sudden nuptials of Eddie and LeAnn a little over a week ago, with the source adding that Brandi and her sons were not told in advance about the wedding. A source close to LeAnn however counters stating, “the boys were told about the wedding three days in advance.”

The Hollywoodlife confirms the UsWeekly story, stating that Brandi is signing on while adding that Playboy playmate Jessica Hall (the same gal caught kissing Kendra Wilkinson) is also in talks to join the cast as well.

“Brandi has already started filming for ‘Real Housewives’,” a source close to the show reveals. “She hasn’t officially signed anything yet but she’s interacted with members of the cast on camera.” As for Jessica, she is said to be “negotiating her contract” with Bravo.

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with all the reported names in talks to join the cast. In addition to Brandi and Jessica, Faye Resnick, Jillian Barberie, Ayda Field, and Jeanie Buss have also been mentioned in the rumor mill. E! news reported a few weeks ago that the final spot for the new housewife came down to Faye and Ayda.

Plus filming on the second season began over a month and a half ago, so we can’t help but wonder if Bravo is planning to add more than one housewife to the show. Perhaps one of the six original BH ladies is leaving mid season. The addition of two new housewives would bring the cast to a total of 8 which seems to be a pretty large number for an already drama filled franchise.

In other news, Kyle Richards was photographed on Monday walking the streets of Beverly Hills with daughters Farrah Aldjufrie and Portia. And it seems Kyle and Farah were a bit busy with having their photos snapped by the paps as poor little Portia walked right into a pole. Thankfully, Portia was okay afterwards. Those pics are below.

UPDATE: TMZ has just confirmed that Brandi has indeed joined the cast of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. According to TMZ, it is a done deal and she has already began filming scenes for the show. In fact, Brandi herself confirmed the news today during an event. Something tells us LeAnn is not going to be happy about this news!

We reported last week that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong graced the latest cover of Star Magazine under the heading “RHOBH Taylor Armstrong ANOREXIC?” and now we have more on the story plus the photos that led to the article!

According to Star, Taylor has lost an estimated 20 pounds in less than two months with sources attributing her shrinking frame to her marital problems with hubby Russell Armstrong.

The photos that set off the anorexia fears were bikini photos of Taylor, 40, (posted below) taken earlier this month in Santa Barbara, showing her protruding rib cage and concave stomach.

Weight loss expert Dr Aaron Tabor, who does not treat Taylor, told Star magazine she is showing signs of muscle atrophy on her arms and chest. “She’s not getting enough protein in her body and is borderline anorexic,” he stated, estimating that she has dropped from a healthy 130lbs to 110lbs.

Meanwhile, a friend of Taylor’s tells Star that she is barely eating and that her problems with Russell are taking a toll. “She is bringing in most of the money for the household. He doesn’t seem to be giving her the respect and love she deserves,” the source said.

And while the couple is currently getting marriage counseling, the source doesn’t believe it’s doing much. “They are in therapy, but it doesn’t look like it’s helping,” the source added. More bikini photos of Taylor below.

As you all know by now, filming began on the second season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills weeks ago.

And according to a new report by the HollywoodLife today, Taylor Armstrong is not boding so well on the new season. In fact, an insider tells the site she is “is looking like quite the hot mess” in the episodes being filmed at the moment.

“Taylor’s a sweet girl,” says the insider, “but the housewives are all starting to get a little bit worried about her erratic behavior recently. She’s not acting like herself.”

The insider adds that Taylor has been acting out in front of the cameras, and suspects Taylor’s husband Russell Armstrong is to blame. “Russell and Taylor’s problems last season are still there this season,” says the insider. “They got into a loud argument in front of some Bravo execs at a dinner a few weeks ago.”  The couple is reported to be getting counseling.

An explanation for Taylor’s reported erratic behavior might have to do with all the backlash she received last season from fans of the show who blamed her for stirring up most of the drama between sisters Kim and Kyle Richards.

In fact, Taylor herself is well aware of the backlash as she decided to apologize to fans once again during the recent Bravo Upfront party in Los Angeles. According to E! News, “Taylor seemed to be asking for the fans’ love/forgiveness” when they interviewed her. Taylor had first apologized to fans in a blog for Bravo following the airing of the finale.

Taylor’s problems do not end there as she also graces the latest cover of Star magazine, under the unflattering heading of “RHOBH Taylor Armstrong ANOREXIC?” with friends worried too much stress might be affecting her health. “She is barely eating,” a friend tells Star magazine. A picture of the Star cover  is below.

Kim Richards and Kyle Richards have both spoken out about re-building their relationship in bits and pieces, but in a new interview with UsWeekly, Kim opens up about her feelings on the now infamous limo fight.

UsWeekly caught up with Kim, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, as she hosted the opening of the Azure Luxury Pool in Las Vegas with Kyle on April 10. The above photo was taken from the event.

“I still don’t know what Kyle was going to do to me in the back of the car — kill me, strangle me,” Kim, 46, tells US of the blow-up, during which Kyle accused her of being an alcoholic, while she screamed that Kyle stole her house.

“I just wanted you (Kim) to shut up,” Kyle, 42 explains of the incident. “You wanted me to shut up, but you were doing all the talking,” argued Kim before thinking better of it. “Won’t go there. If you hold on to the negative, it brings you down. It definitely took it’s toll on us.”

Kyle insists the experience has made them both stronger. “Kim and I went through a hard time last season, but I really do feel that even though we had that argument we’re in such a good place now,” she states. “Maybe some good came out of it. We both grew and learned from it.”

Kim is more reserved simply stating their relationship is a “work in progress,” adding they’re still putting the pieces back in place. More photos of Kim & Kyle hosting the event below.

In other BH news, Lisa Vanderpump attended the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Media Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night during which her beloved dog Giggy took a fall.

See Lisa decided to let the pampered Pomeranian stand on his own last night to disastrous results. Poor Gigster fell flat on his face after Lisa placed him down on the red carpet to bask in the spotlight. Lisa appeared horrified and quickly helped Giggy back up.

The Gigter was not hurt and enjoyed the rest of the night with his mistress. More photos of Lisa and Giggy at the GLAAD awards below.

The NY Post is reporting that during a recent “Summer by Bravo” commercial shoot this week, some of the Bravo housewives felt snubbed by Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi.

According to the post, other Bravolebrities Kyle Richards, Nene Leakes, Patti Stanger, Jill Zarin, and Lisa Vanderpump arrived at 8 a.m. in Brooklyn to film the promo. Padma then arrived three hours later as scheduled with an entourage of six to a private room, brushing past the others without a greeting.

This apparently led to some whispers and gossip by some of the Bravo housewives. A source overheard one star hiss, “It takes a village to raise a child,” citing the entourage around Padma’s dressing area playing with her 14-month-old daughter, Krishna.

A witness said, “They took all of the women’s bags that had been left in a dressing room and threw them into a hallway so Padma could sit separately with her baby in between shoots.”

Top Chef judge Gail Simmons however comes to Padma’s defense. “We didn’t know a lot of the women [who were there]. It’s not like we work together on a regular basis. I met a lot of people on the set for the first time,” said Gail. “It’s not like we’re holding hands and singing ‘Kumbaya.’”

Gail added, “I don’t think I spoke to most people, either. You are there to do a job. She [Padma] was with her child. I would think that anyone could understand that, and she’s still nursing, which is also not a public thing to do. What’s there to complain about? It’s not high school. We’re all professionals.” Millionaire Matchmaker star Patti added, “We all thought her baby was beautiful.”

A rep for Bravo tells the Post there were no designated dressing rooms. And Padma’s rep sniped, “I think this is a nonsensical item from a ‘Housewife’ who is jealous. It’s going to make Padma look bad, and it’s just not true . . . she didn’t get any special treatment.” Meow!

No word yet on how this article made it’s way to the Post though oddly enough one of the above names has a show debuting tonight on Bravo.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS STORY?

Months after their nasty limo fight during the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills finale, sisters Kim & Kyle Richards continue to pick up the pieces of their relationship. And in a new interview with PEOPLE, Kim is speaking out for the first time about Kyle since the airing of that episode.

“[It's] a day-by-day thing that we work on [because] what happened was extremely painful,” Kim, 46, told PEOPLE at Bravo’s upfront party in Los Angeles. “It’s not going to cure itself over night and hopefully we will grow past all that happened and move forward and get stronger and stronger.”

As for Kyle, she says she is now “very proud” of the dramatic fight. “I’m very proud. I can only say for myself, but I learned a lot about our relationship,” Kyle, 42, said. “I’ve learned a lot about myself and I feel like our relationship was strengthened maybe because of what happened.”

One of those lessons learned by Kyle includes taking a new approach when it comes to dealing with Kim. Kyle states she now wants to be more of a sibling than a parent. “When you lose your parents like we have, I turned to my sisters to parent me at times and I feel like at times I need to parent them,” Kyle said. “But it’s not my job and I have to love her, step back and say I’m not your mom.”

Meanwhile Kyle spoke to E! News in a different interview on Sunday night, during which she revealed she might not be returning to the RHOBH after all, despite the fact that the second season began filming weeks ago.

“The show has been picked up for a second season, but I’m not sure if I’m coming back yet,” Kyle told E! News. “We’re not really sure who’s coming back yet, so we’ll see,” she said. We’re going to call a negotiating ploy to get more money from Bravo on this as Teresa Giudice did something similar last year as the 3rd season of the NJ Housewives began filming. Or perhaps Kyle is just playing coy as the cast of the show is not supposed to confirm who is returning to the press.

Whatever the case is, Kyle has been photographed filming for season 2 in recent weeks, so if she does decide to leave the show, it will likely be in the form of an early exit a la Dina Manzo on the NJ Housewives. And while Kyle’s BFF Faye Resnick has also been photographed filming for the second season, E! reports that Bravo has yet to make a final decision on who the new BH housewife will be. A recent report stated that the network intended on adding a new housewife to the current cast of six.

According to E!, the final spot has come down to two finalists – Faye and Ayda Field (wife of U.K. pop star Robbie Williams). “If I were to put money on it, I would say Ayda will be the new castmember,” a source tells E!.

So why has Faye been filming with the cast? “Faye is shooting for the show already because she is an actual friend of the cast,” explains the insider. “It is still unclear if Faye will remain a friend or become a central character on the show.”

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Kim Richards & Kyle Richards made another public appearance together.

According to the Wetpaint site, the sisters stepped out a week ago to do some lunching in celebration of their sister Kathy Hilton’s birthday.

Also present was Faye Resnick, as all signs continue to point to Faye being a new housewife on the show. This is the second time Kim has been photographed in public in the past 2 weeks. And just last week, a fan asked Kyle on twitter about the state of her relationship with Kim, in which she replied, “We’re good.” More photos of Kim and Kyle below.

In other BH news, RadarOnline is reporting Taylor Armstrong and husband Russell Armstrong are currently in couple’s therapy.

A “source” close to the situation tells the site the two are taking steps to repair the breakdown in their marriage with the help of renowned psychiatrist, Dr. Charles Sophy.

According to Radar, Russell and Taylor will have sessions with Dr. Sophy together and separately. It gets even better as several of Taylor’s sessions with Dr. Sophy will be filmed for the upcoming season Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. However, it seems Russell is having second thoughts about appearing on camera for the new season a la Jim Bellino.

“Russell hasn’t decided yet if he wants to participate on camera. Dr. Sophy has provided the couple with a great deal of guidance, and they genuinely do seem to be working through their issues,” says the source. “Russell comes across on camera as being very aloof, and reclusive, that just isn’t who he is. Russell wants to work to improve the marriage, it just isn’t Taylor, which is a very, very good sign for the future of their marriage.”

Another source close to the couple tells Radar that there is “a little stress in the marriage” and that they want to make their marriage work. It’s a wonder these two need therapy as they seem perfectly suited for one another.
