This is despite getting her lawyers to get her out of her contract with Bravo after being declared the most hated housewife ever. However things have since taken a turn in Camille’s favor as the actions & behavior of some of her fellow housewives have without a doubt overshadowed hers.
“Camille is coming back; she just wants the public to feel sorry for her a little longer because of the whole Kelsey [Grammer] thing, so she’s not announcing it yet,” reveals a Bravo insider to E!
And what about Kim Richards? “It’s 99 percent certain that she won’t do season two,” explains the source.
It seems Kim wants nothing else to do with the show following her major blowout with sister Kyle Richards on the season finale. “There is so much more going on than what was shown on TV,” dishes the RHOBH insider. “There was a lot of tension building up over the years, they have a complicated relationship.”
As for the status of Kim’s relationship with Kyle today, the source reveals they are still working on it. “Kim, Kathy [Hilton] and Kyle all love each other, but their dynamic is complicated,” adds the source.
As for who might be replacing Kim, TMZ reported a while back that Bravo is talking to Brandi Glanville, Jeanie Buss, and Jennifer Flavin Stallone. It has also been rumored that Bravo is looking to get rid of Taylor Armstrong though we’re not so sure Bravo or any network for that matter would want to get rid of their resident sh*t starter pot stirrer.
And airing tonight on Bravo at 10/9c is a special director’s cut of the now infamous dinner from hell. A preview clip of the ladies in the limo looking at Camille‘s porn photos from her past is below -

Just in case that whole Bravo housewives thingy doesn’t quite work out, it seems Camille Grammer is looking ahead when it comes to her “career.”
According to TMZ, Camille filmed a cameo role on CBS hit show $#*! My Dad. And get this, Camille plays a character named “Camille” who stars on a reality show called “Real Divorcees of San Diego.” Camille’s method acting will reportedly be featured on the show’s season finale.
Camille, 42, is no stranger to acting, having starred in soft porn movies such as The Naked Detective and New York Nights. Some photos of Camille filming her guest spot are below.
TMZ also reports that Kelsey Grammer’s 27-year-old daughter Spencer Grammer tied the knot with James Hesketh yesterday at City Hall in New York City. Present at the wedding was Kelsey, 55, and his fiancée Kayte Walsh, 29. Spencer is also an actress and currently stars on ABC Family’s Greek.
And finally, the web was abuzz this week following a report by RadarOnline in which Spencer Pratt told the site that Heidi Montagwas actively pursuing joining the cast of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Spencer even claimed they had a meeting planned with Bravo execs while Heidi took to her twitter page to declare – “Watch out Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Here comes Heidi.”
We didn’t report on the story because for one it sounded just as ridic as the story that came out last week claiming Camille might be joining the RHONYC cast. Plus we also had a ban on writing about the famewhores known as Heidi and Spencer unless the story about them ends up being pretty darn interesting and authentic, such as what you are about to read below.
This story immediately took an interesting turn when Andy Cohen first denied it earlier this week by tweeting a simple “Hell no” when asked if he would ever consider adding Speidi to the BH cast.
Things then took a turn for the better when Andy proceeded to let us know how he really felt about the two dingbats during the Thursday airing of Watch What Happens Live.
“Professionally, I’m not supposed to discuss any negotiations so I have to parse my words here,” said Andy on WWHL. “That trash is delusional and I would sooner stab … knives into my own eyes than see her on this network.” Andy then went on to award Heidi the “Jackhole of the Week.”
Mazel to you Andy. Mazel.

Taylor has been blamed for causing the two major fights that took place on the show this season, including the season ending fight between sisters Kim& Kyle Richards.
In a recent interview with PEOPLE magazine, Taylor reveals being on reality television is harder than she imagined. “It’s not easy having your life on television for people to judge you and feel like they can evaluate your life because you put it out there,” she said. “It’s been a little harder than I thought. Sometimes people aren’t very kind.” And we wonder if “some people” would include herself.
As for Taylor’s regrets on the show, she is now singing a completely different tune than the one she arrogantly sang on the reunion show weeks ago when she took numerous cheap shots at Kim.
“I feel pretty good about everything – except my conflict with Kim,” said Taylor. “I wasn’t really aware that she was going through as many personal challenges as she was, because I wasn’t really privy to that. So I feel bad about our conflicts. I wish I’d known then what I know now. But it’s life. So I wish her the best and I’m absolutely here if she needs anything.”
Taylor also pretends reveals she’s uncertain if she’ll return for a second season. “Every other day I think, ‘I just want to go back to being a snack mom at school,’ ” she said. “Back then my biggest concern in my week was whether I had to be room mom. So we’ll see.” Oh poor Taylor. Poor poor Taylor.
In other BH news, TMZ is reporting the seemingly never ending divorce proceedings between Camille Grammer and Kelsey Grammer has finally ended today. A judge in L.A. County Superior Court signed the divorce decree. The Grammers were able to come to a divorce agreement after Kelsey agreed to post $2.3 million, protecting Camille’s pension rights against any new spouse.
Camille released the following statement – “I have a great many mixed feelings about today — I’m sad for what was, yet excited about the road ahead… What I most hope is that Kelsey and I can improve our communications and truly co-parent our two wonderful children, and I wish Kelsey and Kayte love and happiness in their new marriage.”
With this divorce granted, Kelsey is now free to marry his fiance Kayte Walsh at the end of this month, as planned.
And finally, a youtube user, RealCityHousewife, created the following video below, in what can only be described as the most awesome Housewives video ever. Enjoy -
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR’S INTERVIEW PLUS CAMILLE’S STATEMENT? THE YOUTUBE VIDEO – MOST AWESOME EVER?
In fact, a recent post by TheDirty website alleges Taylor and her husband Russell Armstrong might be scammers. According to an email sent in by a reader, Taylor, who’s birth name is Shana Hughes, changed her name to Taylor Ford before she married Russell and even pretended to be from the Ford Motor Company family, wanting others to believe she came from money.
The reader states she and her husband met Taylor and Russell back in 2004 and the four decided to do dinner at the Prime 112 restaurant in South Beach. Russell was allegedly trying to get the couple to invest in one of his businesses and brought along Taylor, whom he claimed was from the Ford Motor family.
The reader adds that Taylor was aloof, rude and condescending during the dinner. She “seemed more like white-trash dressed in Gucci than a trust-fund person,” adds the reader.
And in another post on the RealFauxHousewives website, the same reader revealed Taylor got drunk that night and proceeded to have an inappropriate make-out session with Russell in the back of their Mercedes (the four drove together to South Beach.) It gets even better as the two then left to use the bathroom but never came back leaving the reader and her husband with a huge bill (mostly from all the drinks they ordered). The reader and her husband tried to call Russell repeatedly that night but he wouldn’t return their calls until the next day.
Meanwhile, the Starcasm website reports that Russell is a convicted felon. In 1995, the IRS charged him with evasion of assessment, and in 1997, he pled guilty to the charges and was sentenced to five years of probation plus community service.
Starcasm also reports that in 2001, Russell was sued by a woman who claimed he sold her $175,000 worth of bad stock. The two reached a settlement though the lady ended up taking Russell back to court after he failed to make payments. Russell was named in another securities fraud lawsuit in 2003.
TMZ reported last October that he filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2005, citing he had less than $50,000 in assets and debt between 1 and 10 million bucks. Russell was also involved in a “costly” palimony lawsuit filed by a former fianceé. Russell has however managed to stay out of civil suits or governmental prosecution since 2003.
Meanwhile, a bonus clip released by Bravo only seems to further prove that Taylor is indeed a social climbing phony.
If you recall, Taylor mentioned several times on the show that Adrienne Maloof was the godmother of her daughter Kennedy. This left many viewers puzzled as Taylor and Adrienne did not appear to be close on the show, at all.
Well in the video clip below, Adrienne denies being Kennedy’s godmother when asked by Andy Cohenat the reunion show. Even more interesting is Adrienne’s, who has a hard time hiding her true feelings, reaction to the question as she appears visibly irritated.

Lisa covers the latest issue of UsWeekly as both she and her husband Ken Todd reveal Cedric “absolutely betrayed” them. According to the couple, Cedric lived in their Beverly Hills mansion for over a year and a half rent free only to snap when confronted about his laziness, while also trying to extort money from them.
Ken tells UsWeekly, “[Cedric] said, ‘I’m not asking for money, but I haven’t got any, and I’ve been offered to sell my story to magazines. I can say anything I want.” Ken adds that Cedric also threatened violence. “He said, ‘The last time I was this angry, I stabbed my father,’” says Ken, who filed a police report after the conversation.
“I will sue if he sells any stories about me,” a heartbroken Lisa tells UsWeekly. “I feel absolutely betrayed.” Lisa adds that Cedric changed once the cameras came around and always “wanted to be the seventh housewife.” The twitter bio of Cedric does read, “Model actor and the 7th Real housewife of Beverly Hills.”
Meanwhile Cedric also gave out his own exclusive interview to E! News during which he leveled his allegations against Lisa and Ken. According to Cedric, he was working for the couple in the UK when they invited him to come to the US. Sensing a “great opportunity,” he agreed, living with them for six months and then moving out.
Cedric states he was however still living with Lisa when she auditioned to appear on the RHOBH. So when Bravo called Lisa back to ask her to be on the show, they asked if Cedric was still living with her, and she lied and said yes. According to Cedric, Lisa then asked him to move back in.
“I didn’t need a place to stay,” Cedric says. “I knew [Real Housewives] it could be an opportunity that opens doors…I always wanted to leave [their house].”
Cedric adds that things took a turn for the worst on the last day of filming. “Ken and Lisa changed. When I moved in, I noticed a difference…They were talking to me like…I was an accessory to Lisa,” he said. And below is a Jan. 15 tweet from Cedric -
In other BH news, TMZ is reporting that the lawyers for Kelsey Grammer and Camille Grammer were able to reach a deal today in their divorce case. Both parties have agreed to submit the signed settlement by Thursday, and Kelsey will be free to marry his mistress fiance Kayte Walsh by the end of this month.
While Camille didn’t get the $10 million she was asking for, Kelsey did agree to post a $2 million bond for the next 18 months, to protect Camille’s interest in his pension. The issues of property and money will be resolved at a later date.
And as for those ridiculous pesky rumors that Camille might be joining the Real Housewives of NYC, Andy Cohen denied them today tweeting “Not true by a mile,” when a fan asked about the rumors. For one, the RHONYC finished filming season 4 over a week ago so the rumor didn’t really hold any merit.

Just days following the airing of the reunion episode, Bravo has already began casting for season 2 and looking to add some new housewives. The reason? Camille Grammer and Kim Richards might not be returning to the show. Camille has expressed uncertainty about coming back and Kyle Richards recently stated Kim might not return.
Meanwhile, a report by E! News states Bravo is looking to axe Taylor Armstrongbecause her season 1 storyline failed to impress. So with the likelihood that three of the cast members will be leaving, Bravo is currently in talks with three potential new housewives.
First up is Jeanie Buss, daughter of Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss and an executive of the team. Jeanie is also the long time girlfriend of Lakers head coach Phil Jackson. Sources tell TMZ Jeanie recently met up with Bravo execs and producers even went to a recent Lakers game to observe her daily routine. Jeanie is reportedly very interested in joining the show, which would make for a great storyline as current housewife Adrienne Maloof’s family owns the rival Sacramento Kings.
Next up is Jennifer Flavin Stallone, wife of famous actor Sylvester Stallone. Some sources tell TMZ Jennifer is currently being recruited by Bravo to appear on the next season, while some other sources tell TMZ Jennifer hasn’t spoken to anyone from Bravo about signing on.
And finally, Brandi Glanville, ex-wife of actor Eddie Cibrian, has also been contacted by Bravo for next season. Brandi’s casting would make a lot of sense as she was just photographed this week hitting up a Beverly Hills restaurant with none other than Cedric Martinez aka Lisa Vanderpump’s former gay pet house guest. A photo of the two is below.
“He’s my gay best friend! I’ve known him for 16 years,” said Brandi to E! News about her friendship with Cedric. And yes, we foresee major messiness if Brandi is indeed added to the show.

And unlike all those other magazine stories which have all been pro Kyle and anti Kim, this story actually has sources from both sides. Despite the fact that both sisters stated they were in a good place on the reunion episode, a source reveals they are still struggling to get back to where they were.
“Since the show, Kim and Kyle’s relationship has gotten worse. They’ve barely spoken,” an insider tellsOK!. “This is the biggest fight they’ve ever had. Normally, an argument lasts a few days. This is different… Kim would usually be the one to back down first, but it doesn’t seem like she’s going to. This could definitely be a long feud.”
Below are more excerpts from the OK! article -
Substance Abuse – A sources reveals, “Kyle was referring to what she believes are Kim’s problems with alcohol.” The Kyle source adds that Kim’s family has tried to help: “The word is they staged many interventions but Kim won’t even admit she has a problem.” Meanwhile, a source close to Kim states she “didn’t even want to be on Housewives.” After losing a fiance to murder and surviving two divorces and a traumatic breakup, Kim was apparently left with little money. Kyle reportedly helps support her, “so when Kyle asked her to be on the show, Kim felt obligated.”
Under Pressure – The pal adds that Kim did not want to do the show knowing she’d be out of her league. “She’s not a ‘lady who lunches,’ nor does she shop all day. She got in over her head and couldn’t keep up with [the other women]. She’s uncomfortable in that wealthy environment; it’s been years since she lived so extravagantly. She feels like a fraud and can’t quite pull it together.” The pal reveals that any increase in Kim’s drinking or use of medication is because of how uncomfortable she feels on TV with Kyle and her other costars. “She’s really just trying to cope.”
Sister Rivalry – A source states “there’s deep-rooted jealousy between the sisters” which stems from their childhood. “As kids, Kim was the more successful sister. Her acting career was bigger, and Kyle’s always been resentful of that.” A source close to Kyle however sees things differently saying Kim is the one who is now jealous. “She thinks Kyle has a perfect family, kids, life – everything is ‘perfect.’”
Stolen Home? – When it comes to Kim’s accusation that Kyle stole her home, a source says after the sisters’ parents died, Kim was due to inherit their L.A. home but Kyle got it instead. “Kim has never forgiven Kyle for that.” A source close to Kyle refutes that saying Kyle bought her sister’s share of the house – then even let Kim buy it back at a lower price. “Kyle didn’t even cash Kim’s check, because she knew she couldn’t really afford it,” the source tells OK!.
We’re not so sure how accurate Kyle’s source is as we at Reality Tea did some investigation of our own and the Palm Springs home, which seems to be the home in question, is registered to a certain Mauricio S Umansky and Kyle R Umansky. According to the Blockshopper Riverside website, the Umanskys are owners of the home as of January 2008, and there are no sales history available on the home from 2001 to present.
Meanwhile Kyle tweeted on this on Tuesday in reply to a fan asking her about the home issue – “I didn’t steal a house…how would one do that?”
As of the moment, friends are hoping the two sisters will reconcile and Kyle has said she’d be willing to do another season of the show with Kim. However the healing between them might take a while as a source states some of the things that were said are unforgivable.
“For Kim, Kyle calling her an alcoholic on film was destructive. For the world to believe that about her tore her apart. That’s something that will take a while to forgive.” We should also note that Kim has yet to break her silence since Bravo aired that finale episode. You can read a lot more about the sisters as well as their costars in the latest issue of OK! magazine. A good read.
“I think when the camera follows you for months, that they really do get an accurate picture of who you are” – Lisa Vanderpump.
“I mean you see the footage. The footage doesn’t lie and in this arena, when the cameras are there, if they did see something negative, they would show it” – Lisa Vanderpump.
Please feel free to keep the above quotes in mind as you reflect back on the whole season and the reunion episodes. Following a pretty successful first season, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills took a dark turn on the finale episode. Fast forward to 2 weeks later, and it is finally over. Oh yes! And not a minute too soon.
With that said, let’s get right to the recap! Part 2 of the reunion picks up where part 1 ended, with Camille vs Kyle. “What do you think Kyle has done to your reputation?” asks Andy to Camille, a question I really wished he would have asked Kim. Camille feels Kyle is the reason the world thinks she’s delusional while Kyle is adamant it was all Camille’s doing.
The topic of the she-said she-said drama is brought up once again, and Kim actually speaks up this time… to defend her sister, stating she did not hear Kyle say what Camille is claiming.
