You know it’s bad when a show sounds like a major train wreck before it even airs. Not surprisingly, that seems to be the case with the third season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, thanks to Taylor Armstrong, queen of the psychotic meltdowns…as evidenced last season. Already there have been reports of her heavy drinking, even getting wasted at Kyle Richards’ daughter’s birthday. Also disturbing about her behavior at the toddler’s party? It occurred in front of Taylor’s young daughter Kennedy. Now there are new reports of Taylor’s disturbing antics being filmed on a recent spa weekend to Ojai, California.
A source tells RadarOnline.com, “Taylor was wasted from the moment she appeared in the morning until the moment she collapsed at night. It was a horrific sight to see. She totally lost control of her emotions and her temper. She is an absolute complete mess, but she refuses to acknowledge that she has a problem.”
The drama never seems to end with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast mate Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes, the wife of her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian. Neither of the women really help the cause when they won’t stop bringing the other up on social media and in the press. The latest quote from Brandi on how horrible LeAnn is comes to us from NW HQ, an Australian magazine.
Poor Taylor Armstrong! It seems nothing is working out for poor loony lips as she is desperate to hang onto both her reality show gig and her pennies!
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star recently filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit filed against her by MyMedicalRecords.com. I’m sure you remember, Taylor and her late husband Russell Armstrong were accused of defrauding investors and misappropriating their funds, which they then used to fund a “lavish lifestyle.” Well, some of that money has never been recovered and MMRGlobal wants Taylor to pay up to the tune of $1.5M.
I guess Taylor feels she could use that money elsewhere – like on more injections and botox? – and so her lawyer filed a petition to dismiss the suit. RadarOnline reports that Judge Frederick Shaller denied the motion citing Team Taylor did not meet “its burden of proof.”
“All the circumstances existing at the time of the making of the contract are considered, including the relationship that the damages proved in the contract bear to the range of harm that reasonably could be anticipated at the time of the making of the contract,” his ruling explains.
Oops. Foiled again Tay-Tay! Hope you’ve been saving your paychecks!
DID THE JUDGE MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION? SHOULD TAYLOR HAVE TO PAY UP?
The Huffington Post reports Brandi will definitely be added to next season’s cast as a full-time Housewife and that filming with her kids had little to do with Bravo’s decision to hire her! “Bravo signed up Brandi, not her children,” an insider reveals. “They love her personality and willingness to talk freely about anything without having to consult managers and PR agents.”
“She for sure will be a full-time Housewife next season. Filming is going so well she might end up being the new star of the show,” the insider adds.
And the rumor that Brandi was fired for not being able to have her kids on film is just that a rumor! “In fact the opposite is true,” the insider shared. “In the past, cast members have tried so hard to get their kids on camera to make them famous and it has never worked out.”
The insider even alleges that Bravo finds family-centric storylines boring! “You never see Adrianne Maloof’s children and whenever the story line has focused on the kids, it has become dull very quickly. Anyone that tells you they do not want to be part of the show because they are protecting their children is simply not telling you the truth.”
Well, it seems that Brandi and Eddie are still working out the terms of whether or not their children will be featured in the show. At a recent soccer game for their son, Brandi and Eddie were seen arguing and Brandi threatened to take him to court over the matter! A witness describes their exchange as a “hostile confrontation.” See – that’s why Bravo wants her. She’s willing to engage in a “hostile confrontation” in public, at a children’s soccer game. Oh, lawd.
For those of you who thought the dramatic antics of a one Taylor Armstrong on RHOBH couldn’t get any worse, think again. Last season she really started her downward spiral, but it seems to be continuing as the ladies film the third installment of the hit Bravo show. Taylor’s drinking was out of control as she struggled with her marital problems with Russell, but now that he’s committed suicide, her issues seem to have escalated. Of course, in reality world, that means impromptu intervention!
A Bravo source tells Radaronline.com, “The entire cast will be filming together this week and the plan is for the ladies to confront Taylor about her growing dependence on alcohol. It will be the first time that the cast will be together since Portia’s birthday party when Taylor got obscenely drunk. It was very alarming and distressing for Kyle [Richards], Kim [Richards], and the other ladies to see. It struck a chord in particular with Kim who was recently released from rehab, and she is extremely concerned for Taylor, everyone is. The cameras will be rolling when the ladies express their concern for Taylor’s drinking, the latest incident with her getting drunk at a little girl’s birthday party was the last straw, especially because Taylor’s daughter, Kennedy was also at the party and saw her mother in that state.”
Yesterday, reports came out saying Brandi was let go for not being able to include her sons in the show after ex-husband Eddie Cibrian refused to allow them to be filmed. Well, apparently these were just rumors. “She’s a full-time Housewife,” a source close to the show tells E! News. “Bravo is fully supportive of Brandi and understands that Eddie won’t let her kids be shot for the show. It has zero impact on her involvement with the show.”
RumorFix confirms that Brandi will be back next season, although Eddie is not happy about it! “Eddie is going to fight Brandi about having them in the background on the show,” their source reveals. The source also claims Eddie and new wife LeAnn Rimes are hypocrites! “They are constantly doing photo ops and interviews that include the kids and Brandi does nothing.”
“She is going to fight back but Bravo isn’t involved, it’s all good with them. Eddie and LeAnn are always doing staged photo ops and interviews – Brandi just wants to see the kids when she has them.”
Brandi herself dispelled the rumors, taking to Twitter to confront them head-on. “Dear @radar_online u have no idea what ur talking about ur story is ALL wrong! As usual,” she wrote.
And she’s accusing Eddie of being responsible for the rumors! Oh boy. “Funny no one really knew or knows my work status and after one talk with my ex husband its splattered all over the internet #leakmuch?”
ARE YOU RELIEVED BRANDI IS STAYING ON HW? IS EDDIE TO BLAME FOR THE RUMORS?
Real Housewives of Beverly Hillshave started filming their third season, and all kinds of news and sources are leaking out of the bejeweled franchise. We’ll start with the officially sanctioned happy positive sunshine news, which is that Kyle Richards is opening up a clothing store in Beverly Hills. In a statement that could only have been crafted by a PR person, Kyle tells US Magazine that “As someone who values great fashion, I know how difficult it is to find the newest looks and hottest accessories you want all under one roof.”
So, Kyle began her store as a humanitarian effort. What she should have opened was a hair salon, since that’s what she’s known for. But instead, she decided to sink her cash into another overpriced boutique. Other friends apparently think Kyle is also foolish, but in other ways. They’ve dialed up their old buddies at Radar Online and told them how Kyle is acting like a diva. I’m personally not surprised, but her “real friends” are shocked at the new, famous Kyle.
