Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong has recently come under attack for an uber skinny frame. The media blamed her severe weight loss on a crumbling marriage and the pressures of keeping up with the Richards Vanderpumps Maloofs Joneses. Taylor opens up about the eating disorder rumors and alleged marital turmoil in an interview with OK Magazine.

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.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stepped out last week to support Paris Hilton at the premiere party for her new upcoming Oxygen reality show.

Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Kim Richards and Adrienne Maloof put on their signature satin dresses at ‘The World According To Paris’ series premiere party held at the Tropicana Bar at The Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, California. But seriously, have these ladies ever met a satin dress they didn’t like?

More pictures below of the BH Housewives alongside Paris and Kathy Hilton! Paris’s new show debuts June 1 on Oxygen for the three people planning to watch.

In other BH news, the NY Post is reporting that we will be getting a much different Camille Grammer on the upcoming season of the RHOBH than we did last year.

Sources reveal that Camille is much more “subdued” this season to the point that Bravo producers are finding her character — which provided a whole lot of the crazy entertainment in Season 1 — “really boring.” A source adds, “Producers have told Camille she has to start being more interesting and causing more drama.”

The Post speculates that Camille might have been ordered to keep her mouth shut on certain issues in her divorce settlement with ex-husband Kelsey Grammer. The same settlement that netted her a reported $50 million!

“Nobody knows what’s in that divorce settlement,” says a source close to the show. “But I would not be surprised if she could not discuss certain things. She’s checking what comes out of her mouth, and the producers are pushing for the cast to be as naughty and as full-on as possible.”

Another source speculates that Camille’s new act is because she doesn’t want to lose any access to her children. Her friends state that she’s simply refusing to act in a way on the show that could give Kelsey ammunition for a custody battle. A rep for Bravo denied to comment on the story.

As we reported last week, Kelsey has filed papers attempting to get full custody of his two kids with Camille who has vowed to fight to keep her kids.

More drama between Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer and her ex-husband Kelsey Grammer.

On Tuesday, TMZ broke the story that Kelsey, 56, filed court papers in L.A. County Superior Court, requesting primary physical custody of his two kids with Camille – Mason, 9, and Jude, 6. If you recall, Kelsey dumped Camille, 42, last summer for flight attendant Kayte Walsh, 29, whom he was allegedly having an affair with. Kelsey and Camille’s divorce was then finalized in February and Kelsey married Kayte in the same month.

According to sources, Kelsey and Camille have been at war over the kids who have been experiencing some emotional difficulty in dealing with their parents’ divorce.

Sources close to Camille are however scoffing at Kelsey’s filing, as they state she’s been a full-time mother with 4 nannies while he has been uncooperative in trying to work out a custody agreement. They add that she was willing to give him 50/50 custody, but now all bets are off.

Camille gave a brief statement to RadarOnline, simply stating that “Kelsey is being insensitive to our children.” Camille’s employee friend, Allison DuBois also spoke to Radar. “Camille is an excellent mother, and Kesley truly doesn’t have a leg to stand on,” said Allison. “Good luck with that battle Kelsey, you are going to need it.” And in case you’re wondering, yes Allison is the psychic from the infamous dinner from hell episode.

Another employee close friend of Camille’s spoke to PEOPLE stating she is ready to fight for her kids. “She will fight like hell to keep her children with her, being raised by her, exactly where the children wish to be,” the close friend said before going on to bash Kelsey. “He abandoned his family and got married within months of separating from Camille, all of which speaks volumes about his parenting and his respect for his current children.”

As for Kelsey, he refused to give a statement with his rep stating, “Any statement would be inappropriate. The filing speaks for itself.”

It’s splitsville for Taylor Armstrong and husband Russell Armstrong reports UsWeekly.

According to the latest issue of the magazine, Taylor, 39, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, has finally left the icy Russell after 7 years of marriage. A source close to Taylor confirms the news to the mag.

“They’ve had huge marital problems related to finances,” the insider says of the couple, who were most recently seen together with daughter Kennedy, 5, at a May 7 Lollipop Theater Network event in California.

The news of a split doesn’t come as a surprise as their marital issues were well documented on the first season of the Bravo hit show which had Taylor comparing her marriage to a business arrangement. Plus reports came out months ago that the couple was undergoing marriage counseling.

The insider adds that the split has taken a physical toll on Taylor. “She’s emaciated — down 10, 15 pounds,” the source reveals. A report came out last month questioning if Taylor was anorexic after shocking new bikini photos of her came out showing a very skinny frame.

Meanwhile, the drama doesn’t end there for the RHOBH. While most of us assumed new housewife Brandi Glanville would be clashing with Lisa Vanderpump (Brandi’s good friends with Lisa’s former houseguest Cedric), it seems it is Kyle Richards who is clashing with Brandi on the show.

UsWeekly reports Brandi, 38 and Kyle, 42, have been “going at it” since filming began on season 2. “They got into a fight and Brandi lunged at Kyle,” reveals a source. “They had to be separated by producers.”

PEOPLE magazine is reporting that Brandi is “very happy” about joining the RHOBH and that “she really wanted to be on the show.” As for what we can expect on the second season, sources reveal Kim Richards is more assertive while sister Kyle has taken a more laid-back approach. Also, the entire cast has been more accepting of Camille Grammer, who clashed with Kyle on the first season.

UPDATE - Taylor’s rep is now denying the split to PEOPLE magazine. A source states that while “their relationship is not without trouble… they’re still together.”  The source also denies any financial difficulties. Only time will tell if the original Us Weekly story is true as US tends to be a reliable media outlet.

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.
