In a new interview, Kyle Richardsopens up about the new season, her desire to have more children, her feelings on her on camera fight with sister Kim, plus thoughts on costar Camille today. Excerpts from Kyle’s interview with Breezy Mama below -
What can we expect in Season 2 with your sister?
We started to make amends after Season One. By Season 2 we’re okay. We’re still a work in progress throughout the show. We have our moments. We’re probably always going to clash, but we’re sisters. We’re very different.
What about with Camille?
Camille and I are much better. We’re in a good place right now. We’re actually having fun together [laughs].
But you also got flack for it. Were you surprised?
I surprisingly didn’t take any flack for my stuff with Camille. Not at all. I had an enormous amount of support. I couldn’t believe all the Facebook, tweets and emails… Team Kyle. Who knew there were teams? I didn’t know. But the stuff with my sister, I did take flack for. That was very difficult because people are judging you on one season of a TV show and not realizing this relationship is a life time in the making.
You had an all out sister fight. And those can get brutal, but you had it all happen on camera…
I can’t believe it got to that point. I’ll never forget that night, leaving. I was so upset and devastated and crying and I couldn’t believe this all was happening, but I wasn’t even thinking that the world is going to see this. I’m not even thinking about that the camera is there… that doesn’t even cross my mind. So then once that sunk in, the anxiety started.
Do you think you’ll be more self conscious in Season 2?
I think that… in the beginning, I was a little gun shy. But then about a week into it, that all goes away [laughs].
You were talking about another baby in season 1…
I would love another baby. My husband [Mauricio Umansky] told me the other day that the door is not shut on that, but I’m thinking to myself – you better hurry up. Maybe it’s not shut to you, but I don’t know how long I have. I’m not getting any younger… I have always wanted to have twins, but I feel like I’m too short to carry them.
Is there anything you are nervous about in Season 2 to air?
I am on pins and needles. I am nervous about the whole season just because it’s one thing to live our life out and another to watch it play out on a TV show. People think, “Oh, it’s a TV show,” but it’s our lives. There’s no script here.
In other news, the newly divorced Camille Grammeris also speaking out in a recent interview about her new life as a single woman. Surprisingly, Camille reveals she doesn’t need a man to feel complete though admitting being single can be difficult at times.
“It’s difficult. I miss having a partner in my life,” admitted Camille who turned 43 today. “But I realize that in my life now, I don’t need a man to make me feel complete. So that’s what I feel really good about.”
Camille adds that her focus at the moment is on her two children with ex-husband Kelsey Grammer: Daughter Mason Olivia, 10, and son, Jude Gordon, 6. “My existence is pretty boring. My nights are snuggled up watching Selena Gomez with my daughter and son,” she said with a laugh. “That is what is my life is right now.”
As for what she looks for in a man, Camille states: “I like people that are smart and have a wicked sense of humor… that’s probably why I fell in love with Kelsey because he’s very funny… Though it is not all about looks, it helps if he is cute.” Camille goes on to add that her children remain her priority. “I’ve gone on a couple of dates, and if they look the wrong way, I’m sorry. I’m not going to waste my time. It’s all about my children. They have to like children– and if not, good-bye.”
The new season of the RHOBH premieres Monday, Sep. 5 on Bravo.
Bethenny Frankel is speaking out today after it was revealed the Whole Foods supermarket chain yanked her Skinnygirl cocktails off the shelves for not meeting their standards.
According to reports, Whole Foods removed the Skinnygirl drinkline after discovering it wasn’t as natural as it claimed to be due to the use of a preservative known as sodium benzoate. The Skinnygirl margarita claims it uses “all natural ingredients” and “no preservatives.” Whole Foods stated the following in a statement released: Skinnygirl “had been offered in 16 of Whole Foods Market’s 310 stores. After discovering that it contains a preservative that does not meet our quality standards, we have had to stop selling it.”
In a statement released, Bethenny shrugs off the controversy. “Skinnygirl cocktails were created to solve a problem: to create a line of guilt free cocktails allowing women to drink the indulgent drinks they actually want to drink with as few ingredients as possible,” said Bethenny. “I’m not making wheatgrass here. If I could put an agave plant and some limes on a shelf I would. [The Skinnygirl Margarita] is as close to nature as possible, while still being a shelf stable product.”
Beam, the company who purchased the Skinnygirl drinkline from Bethenny for a reported $100 million, also chimed in. “Skinnygirl Margarita contains very low levels of sodium benzoate (a preservative) so it can stay on the shelves,” said a spokesperson for Beam, adding that the preservative is “very common.”
Bethenny also makes it clear this move by Whole Foods will not make a dent in her rapidly growing Skinnygirl empire. “With all due respect to Whole Foods, we were in a dozen of their stores and have decided not to continue in these stores. They represent an infinitesimal fraction of our business. We are, in fact, the fastest growing spirits brand in the US,” her statement continued. “We were bound to piss someone off and everyone loves to try to tear down a success. This is a non-event. I haven’t lost even a wink of sleep.”
In other Bethenny news, she also spoke out on the recent suicide of RHOBH’s Russell Armstrong. In typical Bethenny fashion, she was very blunt in her comments, making it clear she does not feel Bravo is to blame for his death.
“It’s preposterous to blame a TV show for someone’s suicide,” she told USA Today. “When the show started filming, I’d heard he wasn’t so kind to his wife. But I know nothing about them.”
Bethenny goes on to make a valid point when she adds that people who sign on to do reality shows typically know what comes along with it. “People sign very lengthy documents and they know what they’re getting into. Life is stressful. It’s unfair to blame a TV show for something personal,” she added. “I believe that. I really do. If I go through something horrendous, there’s no discussion that Bravo had anything to do with that.”

In today’s news, reality villain star Kate Gosselinrefuses to go away.
Following an announcement by the TLC network that her show, Kate Plus 8, had been cancelled, many fans rejoiced in hopes that this marked the end of Kate’s TV career.
Unfortunately that is far from the case. The Hollywood Life blog is reporting that CBS show The Talk has now offered Kate a chance to become a co-host on the show. And it appears Kate will accept the new gig!
“Kate has been getting a lot of offers but finally one has come through that is a viable option,” a source reveals. “The Talk reached out to Kate and they want her to co-host for a few weeks after Kris Jenner fills in!”
Yes The Talk also hired pimpmomager Kris Jenneras a co-host after firing regulars Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini for the upcoming season two which premieres on Sept. 6.
Kris will reportedly be filling in for regular Sharon Osbourne who will be taking some weeks off when the show returns. When a fan asked Kate about the new gig on twitter, she did not deny it, tweeting: “In general I’ll say that when (my dream) opportunity comes a-knockin’, I’m taking it! ” Sighs.
And just in case this new hosting gig doesn’t pan out, Kate is still hopeful her TLC show Kate Plus 8 can be saved. Just days ago, she retweeted a peition started by a fan to save the show. Kate retweeted the following: “ @Kateplusmy8 2 Support Kate Petitions Please go sign ur choice 2 support Kate twitition.com/ch7z3.”
Not looking good for Kate as the petition has only received 669 signature so far. What’s becoming increasingly clear is that Kate really really does not want to put her nursing degree to use.

It’s the sixth episode of Project Runway, and mid-competition fatigue is starting to set in, causing some of the designers to simply lose their way and become over-whelmed by the challenges to the point of losing sight of their own aesthetic. Oh, and some of these jokers, like the ones who see themselves as “judges pets” are starting to let those egos out (here’s looking at you, Viktor!)
The episode begins with a sad shot of the girls’ apartment and there are only four girls remaining in the competition. Is it me or does it always seems to be the case that the girls sputter out earlier and then in the middle the boys fall down like dominoes? Of the four women remaining, Laura lets us know she doesn’t really care for Becky. Does anyone like this poor lady? It’s looking like no, despite the fact that she seems fairly inoffensive. Over in the boys’ apartment, Anthony Ryan informs us that he and the dreaded Bert have formed a tepid understanding and now get along.

In separate interviews with VH1, two cast members from the third season of Basketball Wives speak out about how they were perceived on the show, feuds with the fellow ladies, and whether they will return for a fourth season. Meeka Claxton and Royce Reed were the two women who clashed with a majority of their cast mates, and now they are having the opportunity to say their peace.
When Meeka left Italy, she wrote Shaunie O’Neal a letter explaining her quick exit after a brawl with Tami Roman. In her interview, Meeka says that she has no regrets over how she left. She states, “I stand behind what I did. You know I tried to stay but it was just continuous bullying from Tami. It wasn’t getting better. So when it finally came to the point of violence I was like I definitely can’t be here. You know I’m a business woman, this was not my scene. That may be her scene and that’s fine.”
Meeka is suing Tami over the incident, reasoning, “It’s pretty much to let her know there are consequences to actions. And that’s pretty much it.” When asked if an mea culpa from her cast mate could smooth things over, Meeka continues, “I don’t foresee an apology from Tami because this isn’t the first time she’s hit someone on camera. She thinks violence is cool and I’m not with that, at all. It’s not something I’m teaching my girls.”
While Meeka cites the show as a growing experience, she doesn’t give a straight answer when asked about her participation in Season 4, which is casting now. At first she says, “Um, honestly I don’t think that will happen.” However she changes her tune a bit and admits, “I think maybe [I'd be open to a fourth season], but only if they showed our lifestyles and behind the scenes.” And as far as her thoughts on the mean popular girls, Meeka reveals, “I don’t have words for any of them, Royce is the only one, and I would say she is honest.”
Speaking of Royce, she has her own thoughts on the show and what she hopes to accomplish in the future. While she hasn’t heard any more from Eric Williams about his porno blockbuster (shocking!), she is still open to starring in his movie. Of Jen Williams‘ reaction, Royce still doesn’t care…nor does she care about Jen insinuating she sleeps with a lot of men. Royce explains, “It doesn’t hurt my feelings because I know it’s not true and also its coming from Jen. She really is not relevant in my life. It would be different if it was coming from a true friend or a family member maybe I would feel that way, but coming from Jen I know that half the stuff that comes out of her mouth is somebody else’s opinion, it’s not her own, and on top of that she just likes to say stuff to start rumors versus it being true or not.”
Royce touches on her friendship with Tami, but tellingly, Suzi isn’t mentioned once. However the majority of her interview is based on her future plans in show business. Royce says, “[A]fter this show is done I’m gonna either have a show of my own, or your definitely gonna see me in the lights but my major was theatre arts and I’m very good at it, not to toot my own horn but toot toot! I’m a actress first. Outside of that I’m extremely intelligent and I can always hold my own and I don’t need to be sitting around drinking and talking about another person.”
Royce adds, “I can be enhancing my own career. So again when this show is over and done with, I plan on doing movies, I plan on going to auditions, and becoming part of a legacy. So I just want to make sure when I look back five or six years from now and I see this show and I’m like ‘Man, look where I started and look where I am now.’ It’s definitely not gonna be the end of me. I have too much to show the world, too much talent, I don’t want to just give it up because of Basketball Wives.”
And while Meeka may be on the fence about her return, Royce plans on definitely being back for a fourth season if she gets her way. She says, “I’m gonna ride it until the wheels fall off for me, but I know that this show isn’t the end of me. I have a lot going on for myself so I can hold my own.” What does Royce have in the works? According to the interview, her fans need to be on the lookout for a children’s book series, an exercise video, a touring play, and a book tour. She also may be doing a calendar, test pictures of which you can see below.
WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE RETURN FOR SEASON 4? WOULD YOU GO SEE A MOVIE STARRING ROYCE? THOUGHTS ON HER CALENDAR PICS?
Days after ABC announced Chaz Bono as a contestant on this season of Dancing With The Stars, he continues to be on the receiving end of some major backlash by some fans of the show.
It appears ABC’s decision to put Chaz, the first transgendered conestant in the show’s history, on the show is drawing attacks from some people on the ABC message boards. An example of one of the comments posted includes: “This show has completely lost a viewer(s). I am DISGUSTED that you would have Chaz Bono on there. He/she can live however he/she would like to live, but do we need to flaunt it for ratings? Really? I hope your ratings sink as low as you have sunk in having Chaz on there.”
Chaz’s uber famous mom Cheris now speaking out to defend her son. “Chaz is Being Viciously Attacked on Blogs & Message boards about being on DWTS! This is Still America right? It took guts 2 do it,” Cher tweeted about Chaz, who legally changed his gender and name last year. “I support him no matter what he chooses 2do! God! will there always be haters! It took COURAGE 2 do dwts! TG Chaz has an Unlimited supply,” added Cher who also referred to the critics as “Bigots.”
Chaz, 42, showed his appreciation to his mom when he tweeted, “Thanks for all your support mom. The haters are just motivating me to work harder and stay on DWTS as long as I possibly can.”
Also coming to Chaz’s defense is his DWTS pro partner Lacey Schwimmer. “It’s disappointing,” said Lacey to The Insider of the negative reactions to Chaz and the cruel jokes made at his expense on late night TV. “No human is perfect, so why are they pointing out what they perceive to be an imperfection in someone else? It’s not cool. We’re all taught to not bully, or harass, and treat everyone as equals yet all these people are doing exactly the opposite,” added Lacey.
In a separate interview, Lacey makes it clear that Chaz is all man. “The fact of the matter is, he’s a full man, in every shape or form,” she said of her partner. “Everybody should just get over it and accept him and accept him as a human being … he’s so brave and its really good to be a part of it with him!”
In other DWTS news, the Huffington Post is reporting the show wants absolutely nothing to do with Bravo housewives! If you recall, Teresa Giudice has spent the last year trying to get on the show to no avail.
“They have no interest in having any of the ladies on the show,” reveals a DWTS insider. “Season after season the housewives pitch themselves to grace the dance floor and season after season the show says thanks but no thanks.” In fact a spokesperson for Bravo confirms none of the housewives have ever been asked by ABC to do the show including the very popular Bethenny Frankel.
“They never made Bethenny an offer,” a friend of Bethenny’s reveals. “She went to the show with a friend of [host] Tom Bergeron’s who was kind enough to get his pal-plus-one two front row seats next to the head of ABC. But even that couldn’t get her on the show.” But Rob Kardashian is a-okay?

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE CONTROVERSY INVOLVING CHAZ? SHOULD DWTS CAST A BRAVO HOUSEWIFE?
Sources reveal the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is worried about her future while struggling to make ends meet. “Taylor is desperately trying to figure out how she is going to live and support her daughter,” a source tells RadarOnline. “She is struggling to make money right now.”
The source adds, “She had plans to write a book before Russell committed suicide, but now she doesn’t know what she is going to do.”
We can confirm that Taylor was indeed planning to write a book. In fact, we were planning to post that story the same day Russell’s suicide made headlines. After a fan tweeted to her that they would love to read her biography on August 13, Taylor tweeted back: “Writing my story w a self help book right now! RT.” She hasn’t updated her twitter page since August 15.
As it’s been widely reported, the Armstrongs were having financial difficulties despite their portrayal on the Bravo hit show as being wealthy. “Taylor is scrambling to find a way to earn a living, but she isn’t sure how she’s going to make end meet,” the source added. “Taylor’s salary from the Bravo reality show was not as lucrative as they wanted people to think. Everything is currently on hold.”
Meanwhile, the National Enquirer is reporting this week that Taylor might have had a fling with another housewife. That housewife in question is none other that RHOC extra Fernanda Rocha. The Enquirer states that just days before Russell’s passing, Taylor and Fernanda were “dirty dancing and kissing passionately at a Newport Beach fashion show.”
Taylor’s rep however denies the story to the Rumor Fix blog, calling it “ridiculous.”
RadarOnline is also reporting that Russell might have had a life insurance policy after all, but the beneficiary isn’t Taylor but rather his first son Aiden Armstrong from his first marriage to Barbara Fredrickson.
“Aiden’s mom, is trying to locate the documentation about Russell’s life insurance policy. Barbara believes that there was a policy that named her son as the sole beneficiary at the time of Russell’s suicide,” reveals a source. And despite the fact that Russell’s death was a suicide, the insurance would still be valid as long as it was taken out two years before the date of the suicide, and the premiums were paid and up to date.
