Hear that? I’ll tell you what it’s not—it’s not the sound of ice clinking in a vodka cocktail for one of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, that’s for sure. After numerous reports of drunken meltdowns for everyone’s favorite lady (it’s called sarcasm…), sources are telling RadarOnline.com that Taylor Armstrong has eased off the sauce a bit as the women continue to film their third season.
“Taylor has been noticeably more subdued and under control since the horrible trip to Ojai. She is trying to curb her drinking when the cameras are rolling because she recognizes that she has a very low tolerance for alcohol,” explains an insider close to the show.
The usually camera-shy and demure Hiltons are releasing another way to fatten their impressive bank accounts! Kathy Hilton, sister to Kyle Richards and Kim Richards is releasing a new dress line, the “Kathy Hilton Collection” which will probably be in your local T.J. Maxx or Ross in about five seconds.
What we truly care about is why Kathy didn’t join her sisters on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and according to her, the reason she is..she was busy, darling! In an interview with PR.com, Kathy says she was approached, but she had better things to do. “I was working on something else.,” she says.
News flash! Brandi Glanville of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is not, I repeat IS NOT, a mean girl. Like, in no way, shape, or form, has fame gone to her head, and she is just as down to earth as she was when she was in a plane, season two, high on Xanax. That’s how down to earth she is.
RadarOnline.com is reporting that Brandi is very troubled by the recent gossip of her diva behavior. However, a source close to Bravo (where else?) tells the site that Brandi is playing for the cameras for more of a story line.
If you watched the second season’s reunion (and I know you did), you’ll recall that Brandi was very vocal about Taylor’s memoir, claiming it exploited Taylor’s late husband Russell Armstrong’s suicide. Apparently, while on a spa trip to Ojai (a trip where several sources touted a Taylor + booze epic meltdown), Brandi announced her new book which chronicles, in part, her split to actor Eddie Cibrian who cheated on Brandi with his now wife Leann Rimes.
According to Us Weekly, once that tidbit was revealed by Brandi, “Taylor screamed that Brandi was a hypocrite.” Taylor, says another insider, “has been having drinking issues” while filming the current season.
Last week it was reported that Brandi Glanvilleand Lisa Vanderpump had become onset divas and were causing drama during filming of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Now there’s no doubt in my mind that divatude took place. And there’s also no doubt in my mind that ALL the ladies are guilty of it at some point. I mean Real Housewives is like a sorority for adult women! C’mon, like we’re supposed to believe Splits Richards hasn’t thrown a tantrum or twenty?
According to RadarOnline’s now old news article, “Lisa told the other ladies to not talk to Brandi at all when she first joined the show last year. Towards the end of the second season, Brandi and Lisa did begin to get along.”
“However, during the current season, Lisa, who always likes to act like the mother hen of the show, has taken Brandi under her wing, and the two are now inseparable. The two have such huge ego’s, and their antics are driving the other ladies, especially Kyle and Taylor, absolutely nuts,” a show insider shared. This sounds like a case of Beverly Hills Ramonja! Eeks.
If you watched last season’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, you know that Lisa Vanderpump owns quite the restaurant scene. On the episode where the dastardly Cedric Martinez showed up to confront his former friends/personal ATMs at the opening of SUR, Brandi Glanville had an awkward near run-in with a young lady Eddie Cibrian “dated” before cheating on his wife with Leann Rimes. Villa Blaca and SUR waitress (slash actress slash model slash pop star) Scheana Marie was mortified to see Brandi at the event because she had gone out with a wedding ring-less Eddie who claimed to be single. Because that scene on the show was a mere minute in a half long, by my calculations, Scheana Marie thinks she’s got at least thirteen minutes left.
Is she an alcoholic or isn’t she an alcoholic? Is she being phased out of the show or is she not being phased out of the show? Is she a member of the Ford dynasty or is she not a member of the Ford dynasty? There is an intervention planned. There is not an intervention planned. If all of this back and forth continues, I may have a meltdown Taylor Armstrong style.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills sources have been speculating for weeks about Taylor’s terrible drinking problem and the intervention her fellow cast mates were planning. The rumor mill has been a buzz over a drunken Taylor at Portia’s fourth birthday party and her booze-fueled meltdown during a recent spa trip. A source even told Perez Hilton, “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.”
