Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was a shoe spectacular! And oh man was I jealous over Adrienne’s collection. Adrienne hosted a fashion show to showcase her new shoe line as well as raise money for a charity that’s close to her sole (see what I did there?). Lisa and Adrienne exchanged words and Taylor continued her crusade against Camille. All in all it was a pretty good episode that was light on Richards’ drama and Taylor-Traumas!
Things begin with Lisa rushing in the door and she’s late, late, late for a meeting with wedding planner to the insane Kevin Lee. Kevin has apparently convinced Lisa and Pandora to surrender their brains, because as the invitations are unveiled my heart sank when I saw the ridiculous Michael’s craft project gift box. Did I mention those boxes cost $150 a pop? I apparently missed my calling and shall be quitting RT to race to Beverly Hills and design chintzy wedding invites. At least it was a slightly better color combo. As Lisa and Pandora gush over the boxitations, Ken looks slightly confused about what the eff he just paid for.

In her latest blog with Bravo, Kyle reveals the situation/confrontation involving Taylor was “very difficult” because no one wanted to put her in harm’s way.
First Kyle reveals her reasons for not defending pal Lisa Vanderpump, though she wouldn’t have needed to defend Lisa had she not been talking smack about Lisa with Taylor to begin with! Kyle wrote: “Although, Lisa wanted me to step in more, we were okay. I honestly did not want to be involved in another argument. I was still recovering from Game Night. The last thing I wanted to do was get in the middle of someone else’s fight.”
Kyle then sort of makes excuses for her comment about Lisa ‘preying on the weak.’ She writes, “In the episode when I had my séance, Taylor came over to my house to say she was upset with Lisa. We had a conversation on my bed where she told me that she was “scared of Lisa” and that she was intimidated by her. I have never felt that way about Lisa, but I am a strong person. I told her she should be stronger with Lisa. I said “maybe she preys on weak people.” I think that “prey” was too strong of a word. That conversation wasn’t about Lisa. I was trying to help Taylor be a stronger person in general, to have her speak up for herself — in all areas of her life. I know it bothered Lisa that I said that, and I do feel bad about that. I am not premeditated in what I am going to say. That means there will be times I regret saying certain things.”
Kyle also touched on Taylor’s confrontation turned intervention: “Later Adrienne, Camille, and I had dinner and discussed the tea party. I know Camille was worried that Taylor was upset with her. Camille spoke the truth. Taylor was obviously concerned because it was put out in the open. However, sometimes people say things in the heat of the moment. Emotions were running high. This situation is very difficult and none of us wanted to hurt her or put her in harm’s way. Later, I told Taylor later that Camille was just saying what Taylor had told all of us.”
In a new interview with Wetpaint, Kyle revealed her sisterKim Richards is still dating and living with her boyfriend, Ken Blumenfeld. When asked about Kim’s relationship, Kyle says disapprovingly, “They are still living together and I haven’t been over there.”
In other news, according to a new report by Star Magazine, newbie Brandi Glanvillelied her way onto the show! So what exactly did Brandi lie about? According to the mag, she fibbed… big time about her so called friendship with Lisa’s former houseboy housemate Cedric Martinez.
“He’s my best gay friend!” Brandi announced to reporters back in February during the above staged outing with Cedric. “I’ve known him for 16 years. We modeled together in Milan and Paris and London back in the day.”
However, a source close to Brandi reveals it was all a lie! “Bravo bigwigs set the meeting up to see if Brandi and Cedric would bond and if she could prove a worthy opponent for Lisa,” an insider reveals. “Brandi came up with the story of their ‘friendship’ over lunch, hoping it would land her on the show.”
The source adds: “It obviously worked! And it really makes you question how much else she’s lied about over the years.”
Brandi, however, denies lying to get on the show, telling the Rumor Fix blog: “I got the show because of my friendship with Adrienne Maloof, she suggested me for the show. I am friendly with Cedric but that actually almost ruined my chances to get on the show as he is not liked on RHOBH. There is an ex-friend of mine with a major drug habit to support that went to Star and sold them several stories about me that will be coming out soon.This woman is a bottom feeder and I don’t want to pay her too much attention.”
Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH: On the 13th episode titled ‘Adrienne’s Fashion Show,’ Adrienne throws a lush-and-plush backyard fashion show, but brewing and stewing tension from the notorious tea party creates potential conflict. The episode airs at 9/8c tonight and a preview clip is below!

Well, it appears Lisa is now pondering what happened to that close friendship she once shared with Kyle as well. In her latest Bravo blog, Lisa finally touches on the Kyle issue and she doesn’t mince her words.
Lisa makes it clear she expected loyalty from Kyle and the others during Taylor’s high school confrontation, but was surprised she didn’t get that, going on to compare Kyle and the others to “rats deserting a sinking ship.” Ouch. Lisa also reveals she regrets defending Kyle when it came to the drama with Brandi Glanville.
Below are excerpts from Lisa blog -
“I expected too much. Even though you give others support, it is still impossible to assume that you will be rewarded with the same. I learned you can’t expect loyalty to be reciprocated. Take heed. It was like rats deserting a sinking ship. I don’t want anybody to “back me.” If you believe I am right, and many had voiced the same doubts as I over the last year, then speak up. Don’t do as I had mistakenly done, in defending Kyle against Brandi when I did not have an accurate picture of what had really transpired.”
Lisa goes on to reveal she was hurt to hear Kyle confirm she had been talking behind her back to Taylor -
“What did I learn from this humiliating experience, where I was insulted so publicly? I learned to pick my battles, and I realized that the person I was dealing with had greater battles of her own. Was my pride hurt? Yes, of course. Hearing Kyle confirm Taylor’saccusations against me regarding my ego was very hurtful. But it was also enlightening, as previously I had no idea what had been said between the two of them.”
Lisa also hints that while she embraced Taylor, she realizes she was likely being manipulated -
“I embraced her, confirming, much to Kyle’s surprise, that it was time to start anew and erase all the negative feelings and many unanswered questions and extend a hand of support to somebody who desperately needed it. I really believed at that time, whether or not, I was being manipulated, that her need to have me as a friend superseded all that I felt and would just continue to feed into her insecurities.”
What an interesting blog by Lisa. I still have to wonder what caused Kyle to change towards Lisa, especially when just earlier this year she was distancing herself from Taylor following the backlash and claiming they weren’t that close. Perhaps it’s jealousy on Kyle’s part or perhaps Lisa’s ego did really get overly inflated. Either way, it just seems very shady to see her talking smack about Lisa behind her back, especially to Taylor of all people.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON LISA’S BLOG? WAS KYLE DISLOYAL? IS KYLE A “RAT”? SHOULD THE OTHERS HAVE DEFENDED LISA?
On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills I came to the conclusion that I am just so burned out on the Taylor, Taylor, Taylor show. And this show in general. Perhaps it’s a symptom of my profession that I watch too much Housewives!
Things pick up where they left off with Tea Party Part Deux and Camille confronting Taylor about her allegations of abuse. Camille is confused about how Taylor expects her friends to be all ecstatic about her husband when she is telling them he abuses her, yet no one sees any signs of said abuse – physical or otherwise.
Taylor calls Camille “uncool” for outing her marital issues, but Camille seems nonplussed and continues asking Taylor about the inconsistencies going on. Then, Camille pulls a total Dynasty diva moment and storms out! I wish there would be an exciting and frivolous Dynasty-style catfight on this show already. Full-scale hair pulling, sequined gown ripping, destroying of manicured lawns, all out bitch-queen catfight. Can we get on scripting this, Bravo? kthx!

On last week’s episode, Taylor, 40, accused Lisa of mistreating her and refusing her friendship, and no we are not back in elementary school! Things took a turn for the bitchier nastier when Taylor outed her costars for talking smack about Lisa behind her back, while also trying to rile them all up to go against Lisa.
Unfortunately for Taylor, her attempt failed… miserably as the ladies ended up turning the night into an intervention for her regarding her marriage and her claims of physical abuse at the hands of her now deceased husband, Russell Armstrong.
Taylor, who hasn’t blogged all season, took to her Twitter to discuss the drama. First she appeared to be defending her awful behavior when she tweeted: “U didn’t see all the conversations. But, I love [Lisa] and were good.” This was in response to a fan telling her Lisa never said she was not her friend, but rather stated she was not masquerading as her best friend.
Taylor later added: “I was a nut case. Getting healthy,” after a fan accused her of being a nut case. Lisa, who has been rather gracious with the whole ordeal, also retweeted Taylor’s message so it appears all is well between both ladies. Taylor also had a message for her “haters,” tweeting: “I actually feel for the haters. What a waste of a life.”
Meanwhile, Camille Grammerspoke out about last week’s tea party drama, first making it clear she wasn’t a fan of Taylor’s behavior and then expressing regret for revealing Taylor’s abuse claims on camera.
Camille blogged: “The argument should have been just between Lisa and Taylor. If Taylor had any problems with Lisa, I think she should have pulled Lisa aside or took her for tea alone and discussed their issues… Some of Taylor’s stories were inconsistent which led to our confusion. It was a very touchy and difficult subject and so sad and unfortunate. All we really wanted was the best for her and to help without crossing the line.”
Camille continued, “Accusations were flying around the room. I was frustrated because Taylor basically kept accusing us of being liars and talking behind Lisa’s back. When she said nobody is being honest it struck a nerve with me. I thought, ‘OK, you might not think everyone is being honest but who is really being honest? You’re not being honest with yourself. How do we help you because I know we all tried?’ Over the last year and a half we have protected her and helped her. My frustration stemmed from her blaming others when she needed to look inside her own relationship and to also realize that we were there for her. So what I said came out of that frustration.”
“Do I regret saying it — of course! If only I could have broached the subject better, I would have. At the time emotions were running high. Not just with me, but Lisa chimed in too. We were so frustrated. I was truly concerned for Taylor and that’s the hard part. I wanted to be there for her. I did offer that she and Kennedy could move into my home… I regret now what I said during this episode. And I apologized. I felt absolutely terrible. All I wanted to do was help my friend,” added Camille.
Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH. On the 12th episode this season titled ‘The Great Divide,’ friendships are reevaluated and bitter tension is at a simmer in the wake of Lisa’s tea party. As conflict is put on the back burner, Taylor puts her focus on throwing a flashy birthday bash for her daughter.
The episode airs at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR’S TWEETS? IS ALL FORGIVEN? THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?
Kyle Richards hasn’t approved of Kim Richards’ relationship since the get-go, but after learning that Kim’s beau has a DUI and is active on an Internet dating sight, she really doesn’t like him.
Speaking out about the contentious relationship while attending Virgin Unite’s Rock the Kasbah event (she was attending with husband Mauricio Umansky and niece, Paris Hilton), Kyle explains she has just heard the news about Ken Blumenfeld’s 2009 arrest for a DUI and his current Match.com profile. A photo of Ken’s online dating profile is below.
“I just heard about the DUI…I just heard about that today,” Kyle admits. As for Kim, she may still be in the dark about the recent drama surrounding Ken! “I spoke with her yesterday and she hadn’t heard about that yet,” Kyle reveals of Ken’s activity on the Match.com dating site (he was last active a little over three weeks ago). Telling MailOnline that Kim avoids “magazines and websites,” Kyle, confesses she sure doesn’t want to be the one to fill her in on the gory details!
“My sister doesn’t read any magazines, she doesn’t look at any blogs or anything like that. Every now and then she gets on Twitter but she doesn’t pay attention to it,” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star described. “I don’t tell her because I know eventually someone will say, ‘I heard or I read,’ but I don’t want to be that person,” Kyle explained. Sister of the year!
Kyle once again explains her reasons for questioning Kim’s relationship is out of concern. “I just really love my sister and I want the best for her, and I just don’t think that is the best situation for her.”
Disclosing that the two lovebirds are still together, although she hasn’t been invited over (why am I not surprised…), Kyle suspects Kim may be having some doubts about her relationship! “’I think she is beginning to come to her senses. I really hope she will.” As for Kim, she has yet to comment on any of it! I guess time will tell…
In other RHOBH news, is Taylor Armstrong the next Housewife to get the axe? A source supposedly connected to the show is telling In Touch Weekly: “With all the backlash from Russell [Armstrong]’s death, producers will most likely not renew her contract. She is in a fragile state.” This leaves us to wonder is Taylor about to join the ranks of fired Housewives?
Even more interesting, this isn’t the first time there have been whispers of Bravo firing Taylor following this season. The National Enquirer first reported the news last month.
In Touch also adds that Bravo has already invited back some RHOBH for season 3! “Kim, Kyle and Lisa are being asked to do the third season,” adds the source.

Calling this season “difficult” in the wake of Russell Armstrong’s suicide and the constant fighting amongst the ladies, she explains: “You just have to keep plowing ahead.”
“I felt a bit under attack this season with people saying this and saying that,” she admits, speaking to Parade. “I think if you stay true to yourself, people will make up their own minds.” And according to last Monday’s WWHLpoll the viewers did make up their minds!
“I don’t really care what others think of me. You’re not going to please everybody,” she adds about the downside of fame. “I care what I think and what my children and my husband thinks. If I’m OK with them, I’m OK with myself. It’s a very good barometer. I just try to be honest.”
“Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth,” Lisa remarks, confronting her issues with co-star Taylor Armstrong. “I’ve had issues with Taylor, like ‘Sorry, Taylor, you’re too thin. You’re not eating.’ It doesn’t matter what way you cut it, does she like it? No, but that’s what we are encouraged to do, to be honest. We’re not going to sit there and say nothing on the show, we’re encouraged to speak our mind and sometimes people don’t like it.”
“I always knew there was volatility in the marriage, I was worried for her,” Lisa clarifies. “I kept saying “Maybe we’re not the closest of friends, however… if you need a place to stay.” And there was certainly no malice to her statements! “I feel very sorry for her – Taylor and her little girl.”
“We’re in a pretty good place right now,” she tells RumorFix about her current relationship with Taylor. Why do I not believe her?! “Things get worse before they get better,” she stresses, explaining that the dynamics of the show are “fascinating.”
Lisa also tackles Kyle Richard’s backstabbing ways this season, saying she found them “hurtful” and she wishes she could have relied on Kyle’s support throughout the season.
Perhaps Lisa is ready to move far, far away from the drama and onto her own show? Rumor has it that’s definitely a possibility! “It has been mentioned, but I can’t talk too much about that right now,” she says of the opportunity to go solo.
“This has been sort of a surprise. I knew what I was getting into, the franchise is so successful. I’ve had a lot of fun with it. I don’t know where it goes from here. It’s just great to be able to get a platform.” Wow – I have a feeling Kyle’s head will explode if Lisa gets her own TV show!

THOUGHTS ON LISA’S INTERVIEW? DOES LISA HAVE A RIGHT TO BE HONEST OR SHOULD SHE KEEP HER FEELINGS TO HERSELF? DO YOU BELIEVE HER RELATIONSHIP WITH TAYLOR IS IN A BETTER PLACE? WOULD YOU WATCH LISA ON HER OWN SHOW?
Poor Kim Richards seems like she can never get a break! After proclaiming to the world that she is truly happy with her new boyfriend, Ken Blumenfeld, he’s not looking like such a great guy after all.
Kyle Richards recently took to her Bravo blog raising some concerns over her sister’s relationship with the mysterious Ken, who Kim was supposedly dating for a year before introducing him to her family!
As for fans wondering why Kim withheld her relationship from her sister, Kyle explains her relationship with Kim is complex and cannot be understood simply from watching the show. “This relationship is decades in the making. Plus, there are many contributing factors that you will never see because I am not comfortable sharing them with the world,” she asserts.
Kyle confirms that although Kim did attend a premiere with Ken for her niece Paris Hilton; neither, she nor their older sister Kathy Hilton, met him that night. “I started hearing about Kim’s ‘neighbor’ Ken from my nieces. Kim had been spending time over there, but still hadn’t shared anything with any of us.”
“I think it must look strange to you that I am crying over Kim moving in with a boyfriend that she seems to be happy with,” Kyle admits. “I have many reasons for not thinking Ken is the right person for Kim,” she explains, refusing to give anything away. “It looks as if I am crying because I want her to live closer to our family. Why do you think that is?”
“There are so many things I simply cannot say. If I say certain things that would explain everything better, I would be betraying my sister. If I ignore it in front of the cameras, people think I am blind,” she reveals. “For now, I have to wait until my sister is ready to speak up and explain things herself,” Kyle adds.
Perhaps Kyle’s concern is justified because it appears Ken has quite the shady past which makes him the perfect addition to Bravo! RadarOnline is reporting that in 2009, the 48-year-old Ken was arrested for a DUI! Kim, the sweet buy loopy star of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills recently opened up about her struggles with alcoholism, even confessing on the show that she hopes never to drink again. This information about Ken strengthens recent suspicions that Kim has fallen off the wagon. A copy of Ken’s mugshot is below.
In addition to his own issues with alcohol use, it was recently reported that Ken is still active on the Internet dating site Match.com where he is listed as “separated.” In fact, Ken allegedly logged on as little as three weeks ago! Which is a problem considering Kim and Ken are apparently still together.
MailOnline has information from a source that claims Ken is a “nightmare” responsible for causing “several explosive arguments with Kim at his Westlake home.” In fact, one argument was apparently so bad Kim packed up and moved out. She was staying with a friend when Ken followed her there and “convinced” her to move back in with him! “He’s controlling and Kim shouldn’t be living at his home,” the source continues, echoing comments previously made by Kyle. “The family doesn’t like him.”
Kim’s family’s worry stems from the child-star’s past issues with addiction and recovery. Particularly, returning to the spotlight seems to have been nerve wracking for the very private Kim, who reportedly checked into rehab following last season’s explosive season finale episode. “Kim went through a lot last year with her drinking problem and the pressure from the show,” the source reveals. “Her relationships only trigger Kim’s addiction.” And based on Ken’s own DUI he may not be the best sober-partner!
Unfortunately, Kim seems blind to Ken’s manipulative ways. “Kim thinks she’s in love with someone who cares about her, but Ken is a controlling nightmare and he’s not right for her,” the source adds. “Kim should not be with this guy, he’s no good for her.” I hate to say it but maybe Kyle has a right to be worried!
THOUGHTS ON THE INFORMATION EMERGING ABOUT KIM’S BOYFRIEND? DO YOU BELIEVE HE IS BAD FOR HER OR CAN PEOPLE CHANGE? SHOULD KYLE GIVE KEN MORE OF A CHANCE?
