Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

According to the reputable PEOPLE magazine, Camille Grammer will not be returning to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

PEOPLE reports that Camille, 43, has decided to quit the Bravo hit series. “She’s been in discussions and at the end decided she wasn’t willing to expose her personal life anymore,” reveals a source. “She’s at peace with her decision.”

This doesn’t come as much of a surprise, as Camille went from being the most hated housewife ever during the first season of the show, only to come back more mellow and more likable during the second season. Many, however, felt she wasn’t being herself and was playing it safe in hopes of redeeming her image.

“She’s in a great place in her life right now,” the source continues. “She’s grown a lot in this past year and she’s made some wonderful friendships [on the show]. It has steered her life in a direction she never imagined. She’s ready for new challenges.”

Indeed, Camille is currently in a new relationship with lawyer beau Dimitri Charalambopoulos following her nasty divorce from actor Kelsey Grammer. Camille also recently reached an agreement in the custody battle with Kelsey.

We do have to wonder if this was all Camille’s decision or if this is her way of saving face in case Bravo doesn’t invite her for a third season. Reason? Camille was expressing her desire to return for season 3 just weeks ago. “I had a good year so I would want to go back for a third season, but they haven’t asked me yet, so I wonder what’s going on with that,” said Camille.

Plus a report came out in January saying Bravo was planning to fire Camille.

Bravo has yet to announce the returning housewives for RHOBH season three, though, it was reported last month that the network would like to invite all the BH housewives back — minus Camille — for the new season, including the very well liked Taylor Armstrong!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON CAMILLE LEAVING THE SHOW? WILL YOU MISS HER? DO YOU THINK SHE WAS PLAYING IT SAFE ON SEASON 2? DO YOU THINK BRAVO FIRED OR WAS PLANNING TO FIRE HER?

UPDATE - Just as we suspected, it appears the decision to walk away from the show wasn’t entirely Camille’s. “I can’t say too much at this moment, but we couldn’t get it worked out,” Camille tells UsWeekly. “I’ve had so much fun with the franchise, but I guess the producers and I couldn’t come to an agreement.”


Weeks before filming is slated to begin on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills–with rumors that Bravo still hasn’t extended contracts with the cast and is actively scouting for new housewives–Taylor Armstrong (who is, according to reports, already skating on thin ice) is finding herself the recipient of much negative press and scrutiny.

The Housewife who has a penchant for changing her stories as often as she changes her underwear (we hope!), is receiving some serious backlash after the legitimacy of her abuse claims made in her non-fiction bestseller, Hiding From Reality. Her claims are being questioned, well, because some 0f them sound downright unbelievable and there’s no proof anywhere!

According to Reality Weekly (via their print edition), Taylor’s outrageous claims and subsequent media speculation are having some unfortunate and surprising side effects! As a result, domestic violence charities are not interested in having Taylor affiliated with their organizations.

Even worse, Taylor’s rep has tried to book her at domestic violence events and Taylor has been turned down by charity leaders because she is too controversial, and is not considered a good spokeswomen for their organizations. Yikes!

Taylor is still affiliated with the 1736 Family Crisis Center, and recently hosted a fundraiser for the organization. She claimed she was planning to donate proceeds from her book to their cause.

Moving along, Taylor is also facing backlash after rumors of an alleged affair with her very married attorney, John Bluher, surfaced. John is representing Taylor in the massive lawsuit filed against her by MyMedicalRecords.

Both Taylor and John (and John’s wife) denied any romantic affiliation, but several sources claim it was indeed going on. Adding to suspicions that the two were sharing more than attorney-client privileges, John was spotted in New York with Taylor while she was promoting her book. John claimed he was coincidentally there on separate business. Uh-uh…

Apparently, now that she is receiving some serious public scrutiny from, well, everywhere, and her Bravo contract is on the line, Taylor has dumped John and called off the affair. “Once the story made headlines Taylor broke it off with John and told him they couldn’t see each other anymore,” a source close to Taylor disclosed to RadarOnline. “She just has so much going on and didn’t want any bad press, especially involving her and a married man.”

John is reportedly disappointed that Taylor broke things off because he’s also a famewhore he had strong feelings for her, but Taylor’s friends are relieved she will no longer be “the other woman,” as she has enough drama happening!

I have to say, Ms. Armstrong certainly has a talent for causing problems! Here’s hoping we won’t have to see her doing it on-screen in the upcoming season of RHOBH!

DO YOU BELIEVE TAYLOR’S DUBIOUS ABUSE ACCOUNTS ARE CAUSING HER TO LOSE CREDIBILITY WITH DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ORGANIZATIONS? WAS SHE HAVING AN AFFAIR WITH JOHN?

If Real Housewives of Beverly Hills extra star Dana Wilkey returns next season, fans will not get to see her plan her wedding, as she is no longer engaged.

Dana is confirming to Life & Style magazine that she has ended her engagement with fiancé and beau of six years, businessman John Flynn.

“My fiancé and I have decided to go our separate ways,” Dana, 38, confirms to Life & Style. “We realized that we’ve become more friends than romantic partners,” she says. “It’s better for us to break up and concentrate on our son right now.”

Dana and John have a 2-year-old son named John. Bravo has yet to announce whether Dana will be returning next season, though it seems highly unlikely as she did nothing but kiss butt simply failed to bring any drama to the series.

Just last November, both Dana and John were sued by a Los Angeles woman who alleged they defrauded her out of $53,000.

BRANDI GLANVILLE AND DANA WILKEY GET INTO TWITTER WAR!

In other RHOBH news, weeks after she was photographed looking at office spaces in Beverly Hills, more details are now coming out about Kyle Richards planned business endeavor!

According to the Rumor Fix blog, Kyle, 43, is planning to open up a women’s fashion boutique. Even more interesting, Kyle’s boutique will reportedly be three doors down from her former BFF Lisa Vanderpump’s Villa Blanca restaurant. Here’s to hoping Kyle has a more fashionable business partner to help her out!

And finally, Adrienne Maloof recently spoke to OK! magazine, during which, she revealed she will be attending the wedding of pop star Britney Spears!

What is the connection you ask? Adrienne explains that Britney’s dad Jamie Spears “used to be our chef. We are very close to him.”

Adrienne adds, “We have had a long relationship with the Spears family. Her mom, too. Both her mom and her are lovely and is a great mom. She is just so sweet.”

As reported last week, Bravo has yet to offer the RHOBH cast their season 3 contracts, though filming is expected to begin this Spring.

Well, it looks as if one of the lovely ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills may not be returning next season! Rumor has it, Bravo has decided to add the very wealthy and well-connected socialite Marisa Zanuck to the cast.

The NY Post is reporting that Marisa–who previously appeared on HGTV’s Selling LA–will be adding Housewife to her résumé. Marisa comes with quite the prestigious background, the mother of two is married to famed producer Dean Zanuck, who is the grandson of Darryl F. Zanuck, co-founder of 20th Century Fox!

If you’re wondering how they were able to convince a woman of that pedigree to associate with the likes of Taylor Armstrong; Marisa unsurprisingly has a connection to Kyle and Kim Richards! Marisa is a real estate agent for Hilton & Hyland, which is owned by Rick Hilton who happens to be the husband of Kathy Hilton who, as you know, happens to be the sister of Kim and Kyle!

Marisa is in the photo above with her husband Dean! A larger image is below.

Marisa hasn’t confirmed her participation yet and a Bravo rep isn’t saying it’s a definite but she sounds like a pretty impressive choice to join the cast. In fact, according to RadarOnline Bravo hasn’t made any definite decisions on whose returning for season three – even though filming is slated to begin in three weeks!

“All of the women are waiting for the season three contracts, but Bravo hasn’t given them out yet and tensions are running very high with the anticipation,” an insider revealed. “They all have been scheduled to attend the NBC Upfronts in a few weeks, but they still don’t know if they’re going to be signed again or what the details even are.”

“All of the ladies are all hoping and expecting to be asked back,” the source said following last season’s very high ratings, but Bravo won’t tell them one way or another if it’s a definite. Previous reports have claimed Camille Grammer and Lisa Vanderpump may not want to return.

“They could all get together and make demands if Bravo drags their feet, but they all want to continue being on the show so they’re eager to resolve this peacefully and get their contracts soon,” the insider adds.

Here’s hoping they’re trying to class next season up and Bravo will be pink slipping some of the, um, less refined ladies. Or maybe, they are going the Real Housewives of New York route and doing a complete cast reboot. I can think of a few of these broads I’d like to see retire!

Moving onto a woman who will most likely be officially added to next season’s cast, spurned wife Brandi Glanville is planning to write a tell-all about her marriage to the philandering Eddie Cibrian! We-eh-ell… now that’s a Housewives book I may actually buy. And just when she seemed to be getting along with Eddie’s former mistress, now wife, LeAnn Rimes !

Brandi covertly announced the news via Twitter when she teased, “Brunch with my fav book agent Michael B and fav RHOBH boss Alex B.” Brandi wants you to know this is not another case of the Bravo Home Shopping Network. No, was planning to unleash her story long before reality television entered her life. It’s just that no one was interested in her story because no one knew who she was! Now that she has a little name recognition she’s picking up where she left off.

“mine has been a long time coming its about surviving divorce,no 1 wanted it until I got the show tho.Can’t speak 4 others,” she explained when fans questioned if she was just doing this because of Housewives.

No word on when Brandi’s book will actually be published or who’s actually writing it but let’s hope it fares better than Taylor’s attempt at non-fiction! If you want a good read, check out her reviews on Amazon. Scathing, to say the least!

IS A MARISA A GOOD CHOICE TO JOIN RHOBH? WHO DO YOU THINK IS LEAVING THE SHOW? WOULD YOU BE READING BRANDI’S BOOK?

Bringing you a special Real Housewives of Beverly Hills photo post today, as Taylor Armstrong and Dana Wilkey got together with some of their co-stars to host a domestic violence benefit for the 1736 Family Crisis Center’s 40th Anniversary.

Taylor volunteers for the organization and has claimed she will be donating a portion of her book proceeds to their efforts. The event took place at Dana’s home and in attendance were Kyle Richards, Adrienne Maloof, and Peggy Tanous. I’m not even sure what to think about Dana’s outfit and appearance!

I noticed her best friend forever Lisa wasn’t in attendance! Also, absent; Camille Grammer, who according to Dana’s Twitter was in Hawaii. Representing for Team Awesome was Dedra Whitt, Camille’s BFFL. “Camille was in Hawaii but she was missed,” Dana wrote.

The event was, of course, sponsored by Ciroc vodka, which frankly, I don’t approve of. “Thank you so much @Ciroc for supporting the 1736 Family Crisis Center with your sponsorship. We were so happy to have you at the event,” Taylor tweeted. American Idol alums, Ace Young and Diana Degarmo performed. I hope Ace didn’t write his own music this time…

More PHOTOS of Taylor and the gang from the event are below!

Moving on to Lisa Vanderpump, as after a season of bitter drama, she found herself in the crosshairs at the reunion when former friends, Kyle Richards and Adrienne Maloof, ganged up on her. Lisa has expressed reservations about signing on for a third season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, particularly because her spinoff may or may not happen. Well, apparently, if Lisa returns, she’s making sure the ladies play by her rules!

According to RadarOnline, the drama off-camera was far worse than anything Bravo caught on film, and the fall-out because of the reunion was epic. “Lisa is on the warpath and she’s ready to battle her co-stars,” a source revealed “Lisa told Kyle that she has to take sides now. That she’s either with Lisa or against her.”

Apparently, it’s all a game for the desperate for fame Lisa, who is interested in creating drama. “Lisa is trying to manipulate the other women on the show and she wants Kyle to be on her side and be her friend,” the source added. “And she’ll do anything she can to stir up the drama.” Interesting…

DO YOU BELIEVE THE ALLEGATIONS THAT LISA IS MANIPULATING THE WOMEN FOR DRAMA? IS SHE FORCING KYLE TO BE HER FRIEND FOR RATINGS? THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR AND DANA’S EVENT? DO YOU THINK CAMILLE WOULD HAVE COME?

According to a shocking new report by Radar Online, a source is revealing that when Taylor Armstrong claimed in her memoir that her deceased husband Russell Armstrong once tried to drown her, she was telling the truth. And in fact a police report about the incident was filed.

Radar Online reveals the incident occurred back at the home of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars a few years ago and names two witnesses to the alleged abuse. Those two are Taylor’s friends - Jennifur Diamond and her then husband Mark Alsentzer.

A source reveals the drama began when Russell flew into a rage and injured Mark. Russell then left the group, after which Taylor begged Mark not to press charges. However, Russell was eavesdropping on the group’s conversation and heard Taylor state: “Just take care of Kennedy if anything happens.”

Upon hearing this, Russell allegedly jumped out of the bushes and lost it. “Russell was in a frenzy, and he had a wild look in his eyes. He hit Mark, and threw Jennifur, her dog, and Taylor in the swimming pool and tried to drown Taylor. Taylor thought she was going to die as Russell held her under the water,” a source reveals.

“Mark and Jennifur were able to pull Russell off of her and probably saved her life. The cops were called and a police report was filed. At that point Taylor hadn’t been receiving any therapy, and she begged and pleaded with her friends not to press charges. Taylor had to cover her neck for several weeks because of the choke marks. She even had trouble speaking because of Russell’s strength when he tried to choke her,” continues the source.

“Mark got 16 stitches and had work done on his teeth because of what Russell did,” the insider said. “I can’t be sure that Russell gave them money to stay quiet, but he definitely gave them money to cover the expenses of Mark’s medical stuff which was somewhere around $12,000.”

Have a few questions about this report, the first being, why hasn’t this police report been made public? And was the police report only a complaint about Russell injuring Mark? Because if his alleged attempt to drown Taylor was reported, surely that would have led to Russell’s arrest and some serious charges.

Moving on to a lighter topic,  Brandi Glanville, age 39 (she looks younger no?) shares her beauty and plastic surgery secrets with Shape magazine! Below are excerpts from Brandi’s interview -

SHAPE: You’re in such amazing shape but also such a busy mom. What’s your workout regimen like and how do you find time to stay in shape?

BG: After I drop my kids off at school, I head right to my Pilates trainer. I’ve had the same one for nine years! I started with her when I was pregnant with [my son] Mason. Before that, I had never even really worked out before! Once I got pregnant, everything kind of changed. Now I do three times a week and besides that, I stay active by going on bike rides with my kids, walking the dogs, or going for a hike near my home. I can’t even think about stepping foot on a treadmill!

SHAPE: You also have amazing skin. What’s your skincare regimen?

BG: I get a spray tan every week. I also have issues like adult acne and Melasma (patches of skin discoloration) since I’ve had my kids, so I try everything—lasers, photo facials—and I wear hats all the time to protect myself from sun.

SHAPE: It seems there would be a lot of pressures in Beverly Hills to always look perfect. How do you deal with that?

BG: Having grown up modeling, I’m very self-aware of my physical appearance. It’s hard to grow older, especially in this town where everyone is perfect! They’re all 20 years old and gorgeous and I’m now in same dating pool as them, yikes, it’s really hard! This town makes you insecure. And yes, I’ll cop to a few plastic surgery procedures like Botox and fillers. I think everyone should do what makes them feel good but remember: Less is more!

Brandi was also asked about how she deals with negativity from some fans, to which she responded: “People have said horrible things like I’m ‘plastic’ and I’m a bad mom. I think after three years of hearing it I have just developed a thick skin. I think it’s human nature, and I know what they say isn’t true so I’ve learned to not take it to heart.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE REPORT ABOUT RUSSELL AND TAYLOR? DO YOU BELIEVE IT? AND THOUGHTS ON BRANDI’S INTERVIEW?


Following her disastrous season on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the key question remains is Kim Richards planning to return to the Bravo hit series?

Well according to a new report today, Kim, who did a recent stint in rehab, is healthier than ever and ready for her comeback! Sources close to Kim tell Radar Online she has made great progress since leaving rehab in January. “Kim’s post-rehab transformation is awesome,” the source states. “Since she got out of rehab she’s stronger and spunkier.”

Even better for Kim, age 48, she has now cut off all times with former boyfriend Ken Blumenfeld, who some had described has being controlling. “Kim is single now, and she’s good being single,” the insider reveals. “She wants someone in her life who is going to be a positive influence, and so she’s going to stay single until she finds the right guy.”

And, while her family is reportedly begging her not to return to the RHOBH, the source reveals Kim would like to return to the show. “Kim wants to return for the next season. and while there are a lot of people around her telling her not to she really liked being on the show and being a Housewife.”

TAYLOR ARMSTRONG HAS SOME ADVICE FOR CHRIS BROWN & RIHANNA!

Here’s to hoping if Kim does return, she’s sober and healthy. On one hand, I would like to see her return, especially to redeem herself following last season,  but then again there’s always that risk of what if she relapses during filming. As we reported yesterday, filming on the new RHOBH seasons typically start during spring.

Moving on to Kim’s sister, Kyle Richards, who’s dishing on her niece Paris Hilton, the hardships of doing a reality show, and also the dramatic reunion in regards to why she didn’t come to Lisa Vanderpump’s defense, in a new interview with TheCWdc.com.

First Kyle, age 42, explains why the viewers have yet to see Paris on the RHOBH. “Paris was doing a show at the time,” explains Kyle. “There was a contractual thing that they weren’t allowed to come on our show and vice versa. Which we thought it would work out, cause its Oxygen and it’s all underneath the same umbrella, but they didn’t allow it.”

Kyle also adds that she now has a “newfound respect” for Paris who she turned to for advice on how to deal with the backlash that comes from doing a reality show. “Once I got into [reality TV], I turned to her and said I’m really having a hard time with this. I don’t think I can do this anymore. She said this should be a fun time in your life, good or bad you can’t listen to all things people say to you,” states Kyle.

Kyle goes on to talk about the dramatic season two reunion and why she failed to come to her “friend” Lisa‘s defense. “People were also really upset that I didn’t come to Lisa’s defense with the Adrienne situation about the radar online comment but I was in a very bad position. Because I am friends with all of them and Mauricio and I are very good friends with Adrienne and Paul. That’s the number one thing,” explains Kyle. Me thinks fans were also upset because at times, Kyle also appeared to join in on the attack.

Kyle continues: “And number two, Adrienne was not making it up that she was told that. Even though it wasn’t true, they (radar online) owe everyone an apology because it caused that whole thing. What was I going to do? I cannot get involved in every fight. I got a lot of comments from people asking why didn’t I step in? And the next week when I defended Taylor, people said why didn’t you stay out of it, it’s none of your business. You’re damned if you do, damned if you don’t in reality television. You can’t make everybody happy. I know who I am and that’s all that matters.”

And finally, Kyle describes being on a reality show as “very difficult.” She adds, “It is extremely bitter at times. It’s very difficult. If you would have told me it was difficult being on a reality show before I did this, I would think oh please, give me a break how hard could that be? But it is very difficult. People are judging you based on snippets of our lives and they’re not always privy to the back-story, which leads to certain things.”  Even though they’re “snippets” they still tell a lot about who you are. Just sayin’ Kyle.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK IT’S A GOOD IDEA FOR KIM TO RETURN TO THE SHOW? THOUGHTS ON KYLE’S INTERVIEW & EXPLANATION OF WHY SHE DIDN’T DEFEND LISA?

No, hell has yet to freeze over, and yes that is a photo of Brandi Glanville looking rather chummy with her ex-husband’s former mistress wife, singer LeAnn Rimes!

To bring you up to date, once upon a time, Brandi, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, was happily married to actor Eddie Cibrian, that is until Eddie went off to shoot a movie with LeAnn, during which the two began to have an affair! Brandi forgave Eddie and tried to make her marriage work, but couldn’t as Eddie and LeAnn continued to see each other.

Fast forward to today, Eddie and LeAnn are now man and wife, while Brandi is a single mom to her two sons with Eddie. Things had gotten pretty ugly with Brandi & LeAnn, with Brandi, rightfully, slamming LeAnn at every opportunity in the press. Which now makes these latest set of photos, all the more shocking.

The photos were snapped on Sunday during the soccer game of Brandi and Eddie’s son, Jake. Brandi and LeAnn shared laughs while sitting on a blanket in the grass, and were also pictured walking together. Eddie was also present at the game, and kept it classy as always when he later displayed some PDA with LeAnn. More photos of the trio below!

Must say, kudos to Brandi for being able to get over the anger and trying to get along with LeAnn for the sake of her kids. Don’t know if I would be able to do the same if I were in her shoes, but kudos to Brandi for putting her kids first.

Moving on to Lisa Vanderpump, who might be getting her own Bravo spinoff after all!

Just a month after a report came out stating that Bravo had decided not to pick up her show, which she had already filmed a pilot for. Huffington Post writer Rob Shuter just tweeted moments ago that it has now been picked up by Bravo. Rob wrote, “Congrats to @LisaVanderpump her spin off Bravo show has been picked up several insiders tell me.”

According to reports, the spinoff show will focus on the ins and outs of one of her restaurants, following the chaos surrounding the restaurant and the lives of both Lisa and her staff.

The timing of this report is interesting, as Lisa, age 56, recently revealed that her hubby Ken Todd does not want her to return to the RHOBH. In a recent interview with KTLA, Lisa made the surprising revelation.

“I don’t know really…,” said Lisa when asked about a Season three return. “My husband’s not as in to it as he was because for some reason I’ve managed to fool him for the last 30 years in to thinking I’m perfect and he hates to see me criticized.”

Even worse, Lisa also shares Ken’s sentiments following the nasty season two reunion. “After the reunion, I felt blindsided and I went out of town for a week because I really did feel devastated and it wasn’t just the accusations it was the silence of my friends that’s what was really hurtful,” said Lisa.

Safe to assume if Lisa’s spinoff does well, she is a goner on the RHOBH! However, it’s highly unlikely her show will air before the next season of the RHOBH begins to film, as Bravo began filming last season during Spring.
