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.
Uh-oh – don’t count your chickens before they hatch! Or in this case don’t stop counting your wrinkles before your face lift heals! It seems that poor Brandi Glanville can never get a break where Housewives is concerned and may be suffering the same fate as the now retired Camille Grammer. Brandi has, allegedly, been let go for refusing to her feature her children on the show. And it’s all ex-husband Eddie Cibrian‘s fault!
According to RadarOnline, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s contract was yanked by Bravo when it was determined that filming her children was a no-go. “Bravo wanted her to have her kids on the show in order to expand story lines,” a source reports. “But LeAnn [Rimes] and Eddie wouldn’t allow it.” Wait – LeAnn, former mistress, now wife has a say in the matter? Uhhh… sounds fishy to me!

Happy birthday Portia! What does one get for the four-year-old who has everything? Perhaps a little drama, RHOBH style!
Radaronline.com is reporting that while Kyle Richards’ daughter was getting into her birthday cake, the always messy Taylor Armstrong was getting into the vino. Big time. A guest of the shindig tells the site, “It’s extremely worrying that Taylor would get blitzed at a birthday party for a four-year-old little girl. She doesn’t weigh a lot and doesn’t seem to have a high threshold for alcohol, it didn’t take long for her to be wasted. Taylor was drinking white wine and it was truly sad to see — she was slurring her words and she got very emotional the more she had to drink. Taylor didn’t drive, thank God, she had a driver for the evening, but she clearly is in a great deal of distress right now and she desperately needs help.”
Oh Lisa, Lisa, Lisa…have you learned nothing from Jill Zarin and Teresa Giudice? Getting too big for your Chanel baubles leads to nothing but co-star–and fan!–backlash. RadarOnline is reporting that Lisa Vanderpump has gotten a tad cocky in light of her recent spin-off. A source tells the site, “There are a lot of bad feelings because Lisa got her own show and Taylor [Armstrong] for one thinks that Lisa has been acting like a diva during filming. Taylor and Lisa had gotten close after Russell’s suicide last year, but Taylor now feels like that was all done for the cameras.”
“The Housewives are jealous that Lisa got so much attention at the recent up fronts in New York City,” the insider goes on to say. However, “Lisa does have one very vocal supporter among the cast though, Brandi Glanville. Brandi thinks it’s fantastic that Lisa got her own show and of course, she wants to appear on that show as well.” No shocker there!
