According to TMZ's intrepid reporting, they are banding together to hold out for more money and refusing to sign contracts unless they're given a raise. Lisa Vanderpump is not part of this as she is on the fence about returning to the show regardless of whether or not she's paid more! Although Bravo is desperate to keep her! And likely if Lisa is returning the network will offer her more as she also has a successful spinoff for the network in Vanderpump Rules!
If I was Camille Grammer, I might wake up today thoroughly confused. Last October Camille claimed her then-boyfriend, Dimitri Charalambopoulos, went ballistic and assaulted her while she was in a Houston hotel room recovering from cancer surgery.
In the documents obtained by TMZ, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star said that a woman was texting, calling and screaming at Dimitri, causing an argument between him and Camille.
What Camille claimed happened next will make your skin crawl….also remember she was recovering from CANCER SURGERY!
Joyce, the former beauty queen who continually clashed with Brandi Glanville and Carlton, the Wiccan who really clashed with Kyle Richards, have been rumored to be exiting the show since February. At that time TMZ reported that "there's a 95% chance Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia won't be back for Season 5 — they're just not involved enough in the series' story lines to justify their coveted spots in the cast."
TMZ was also "told it became obvious Joyce and Carlton weren't jiving during the reunion show taping earlier this month — all the other women had great chemistry … and Joyce and Carlton were clearly outsiders."
The question remains though, did any of the other housewives influence Bravo's decision?
Rumors have been swirling for a while now that show matriarch Lisa Vanderpump wants to leave. Her dissatisfaction with her castmates along with the success of her spinoff Vanderpump Rules means that she no longer needs RHOBH. After Lisa skipped the Bravo Upfronts to open her new restaurant PUMP and gave an interview sharing that she still had not forgiven Brandi Glanville, there's been lots of talk that she will officially leave the show. And Bravo is doing everything in their power to keep her!
Andy Cohen visited PUMP where he had dinner with Lisa and their mutual close friend Lance Bass. The reason: Andy is desperate to keep Lisa on RHOBH and is hoping that he could use Lance to help persuade Lisa to stay! TMZ called it a "last ditch effort" on Bravo's part to convince Lisa to remain on RHOBH.
Brandi kept her half million Twitter followers up-to-date with what exactly was happening with her and Eddie Cibrian's son. On Sunday, she shared her first tweet about the incident.
"At ER with Mason 3rd time in 9 weeks :/ allergies and Epi-pens suuuck! Better safe than sorry #lovesofmylife." Which she followed up with the above picture of 10-year-old, Mason, looking worse for the wear and his younger brother, 6-year-old, Jake, horsing around, which she captioned, "My little patient and his not so sympathetic little brother."
Mason sounds like he will bounce back, but let's hope this trip to the ER does not cause a cross-country Twitter battle between Brandi and Eddie's current wife, LeAnn Rhimes, like the last trip did….
It has been months since filming ended, but Lisa is still not ready to forgive. In a new interview with Star magazine, Radar Online reported Vanderpump says, “Brandi denies and denies her behavior — and all I can do is throw my arms up and walk away. It’s not worth the pettiness."
We already shared red carpet photos from PUMP's grand opening. Today, we gathered up a few party shots ofLisa and her guests, as well as pictures of PUMP's decor. Lisa designed PUMP herself. "I wanted to create a garden that makes you feel like you're in paradise, like France," Lisa told the LA Times. "I always look for what I think the market needs in a certain space. For this – it is very gay friendly because we are right in boy's town."
Not in attendance were several of Lisa's RHOBH co-stars, like Brandi Glanville, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards and Yolanda Foster.
Reality Tea was invited to the opening party, but things have been a little too hectic around here, so we weren't able to peel ourselves away from the site and attend. BUT we do have the red carpet photos for you and that's the most important part!
