Last night’s season finale episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills brought us back to the show we know and love with an over-the-top wedding featuring all the trimmings those of us in the real world could never afford. It was beautiful, it was captivating, it was pink, and most importantly, it was drama free! I think it was a perfect season finale — until the last fifteen minutes, which I’ll pretend never happened.
It’s the day before Pandora’s pinksplosion fantasy wedding. As planned, the Vanderfabulous-Todds have converted part of their tennis court into the wedding site complete with a massive white tent that ensconces every surface in dangling crystals. While everything is carrying on as scheduled, Kevin Lee is apparently out of town! Kevin’s assistant is there in his absence and while she lacks Kevin’s bling, bling, she seems far more efficient.

With season two of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills coming to an end tonight, the ladies are dishing left and right about the past season as well as airing their feelings on some of the drama.
Kyle Richards has had quite the dramatic year, from her sisterKim Richards‘ public battle with addiction to her friend Taylor Armstrong claims of domestic abuse, and now the Housewife is speaking out about the dramatic moments from the past season.
“Season two has been very emotional to live through, and to watch it is difficult at times,” Kyle reveals to Celebuzz. “Honestly we did have a lot fun — like Hawaii, we all laughed! Although my sister and I had our moments we did have a lot of fun.”
Kyle explains that certain scenes involving her sister are difficult for her to watch, particularly the discussion they had at last week’s SUR party. “Oh my gosh, it’s so hard for me to watch that. That and the scene where I bumped into my sister at the store. In the reality world it’s rare to have that real moment where you bump in unexpectedly, and we did. [Kim] was there looking for a dress for the opening credits of the show and I happened to bump into her there.”
Kyle goes on to add that Kim hasn’t seen the last few episodes. “The last few episodes my sister isn’t watching. I want her to move forward, not look back. She’s not watching,” Kyle described. Although Kim did watch the episode from Kathy Hilton‘s consignment shop. “She did see that episode, and we both cried. It’s sad.”
Despite all the ups and downs, Kyle is more than willing to sign on for another season. “If it gets picked up, or when, assuming it does, I love these women. We have our moments but I care about all of them.”
And both confirming and disputing certain rumors out there about which ladies are returning for season 3, Kyle claims “As far as I know [the main] women are back. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it!” Well, see the problem is that the show is broken and needs to be fixed, so hopefully the fans will get their wish and some changes will be made!
Moving right along, Lisa Vanderpump had an expected, unexpected guest for the launch of SUR when Cedric Martinez arrived supposedly uninvited. After the episode aired Cedric spoke out claiming Bravo had arranged the party “crash” and Lisa was well-aware he would be making an appearance. Cedric provided emails proving producers were involved in the plotting and released them to the media.
Whether Lisa knew or not (or didn’t have an option to contest, given her contract), she is speaking out calling Cedric’s media blitz “disgusting.” Lisa is appalled by Cedric’s repeated pleas for attention via tabloids and interviews; wondering how a person who lived in her home and was like a son to her “keeps going and going — there’s something new every week … ”
“I don’t understand it. It sickens me that he sinks to that level,” Lisa tells RumorFix. Lisa also adamantly denies Cedric’s assertions of her husband Ken Todd‘s affairs and a secret love child. “I’ve been married for 30 years and we’re really, really happy. I love my husband and I’m just sick of these continual attacks.”
And of Cedric’s rumored tell-all book, which is said to contain salacious details about the Vanderpump-Todd family, Lisa claims she has no interest interest in insulting Cedric back. “I never hit back — I never said anything negative. It is what it is and I’ve moved on.”
Following last week’s episode, which featured an ill-advised therapy session, Adrienne Maloof, the level-headed, crazy-haired Housewife is discussing Taylor and the Sisters Richards bizarre dynamic, via her Bravo blog.
“Having brothers, it’s very interesting for me to see the dynamic between Kyle and Kim. With my brothers and I there is more light-hearted teasing, and we’re competitive when it comes to business or sports. The one thing that is absolutely the same though is the love,” Adrienne describes.
“I’ve known Kyle and Kim for quite some time, and I’ve seen them in their moments of joy as well as those moments we saw in Hawaii. I understood Kyle’s frustration with Kim missing so many events — when you love someone you want to share the great moments. There is a sense of regret in not sharing those moments and I know Kyle didn’t want her sister to miss out on the fun.”
Describing the opening of SUR as “very stressful” because of the many “heart-to-hearts,” Adrienne wonders if that was really the appropriate time or place. “I don’t think you ever get dressed up and go to an event expecting it to turn into a therapy session in a back room!,” she exclaims.
Also, revealing her reason for insisting Taylor apologize to Camille Grammer, Adrienne stands by her decision to call Taylor out. “I thought Taylor needed to be accountable for the position she put her friends in. You want to support your girlfriends, but it’s difficult when you’re being threatened with litigation as a result,” Adrienne explained.
“However she did admit that and I admire her being candid and forthright about her role. It was an emotional rollercoaster for all involved. Ultimately she has my support as she gets back on her feet, and I wish her much happiness in her life moving forward.”
Finally, as I am sure you are all aware tonight is the season finale! Though according to whispers, last week’s episode was originally supposed to be the finale. Bravo, however, decided to add one more episode following Russell‘s passing.
Tonight’s finale means we only have the reunion to dread look forward to before putting the most depressing, unenjoyable season in Housewives history behind us. On tonight’s episode Pandora ties the knot and the ladies visit with Taylor collectively for the first timeRussell Armstrong‘s suicide.
You can watch a preview for tonight’s episode below!
The season finale of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs tonight on Bravo at 9/10c.

Season two of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has certainly brought the drama this go-round. The first season’s viewership was high, but the new drama has increased by 12 percent since last season, averaging about 2.2 million viewers. Last week’s episode was ratings gold when Taylor Armstrong finally discussed on camera her abusive relationship with now deceased husband Russell Armstrong.
According to a new report by Radar Online, Bravo is looking to shake things up… just a tad for season 3. The shocker? The network is expected to ask Taylor to return, while likely firing Camille Grammer. The reason? Camille was not a bitch too reserved this season!
“Producers are asking Lisa Vanderpump, Adrienne Maloof and Kyle Richardsif any of their wealthy female friends would be interested in appearing on the show,” a Bravo network insider tells RadarOnline. “It’s an open secret that Camille most likely won’t be back for a third season. She came off as such a bitch during season one, whereas this season she has been very reserved,” continues the source.
The source goes on to add that Camille “isn’t exactly eager to return. Camille has some other projects in the works, but she needs to get released from her Bravo contract before she can pursue those.” You have to wonder if Camille really wants to exit the show, or if this is just a way to save face in case Bravo decides to fire her a la Jill Zarin.
America watched as Camille endured a very nasty and public divorce from actor Kelsey Grammer prior to this season. Kelsey, who appeared on a handful of episodes last season, famously told CNN presenter Piers Morgan that securing a spot for Camille on RHOBH was a “parting gift” to his then-wife. He stated, “Whether or not it worked well for her doesn’t matter — it was my way of saying, ‘Look, you always wanted to be famous. Here you go.”
With Camille likely absent from a third season, the source dishes on some other changes that viewers could potentially see, sharing, “Expect Taylor and Brandi [Glanville] to come back. Kim Richards doesn’t want to, but she needs the money, so her role might not be as prominent. Producers will focus more on Brandi because she is so polarizing and she loves playing the villain.”
In other Housewives news, Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey got into a Twitter feud today after Dana retweeted a not so nice tweet made about Brandi. The message retweeted by Dana stated: “Brandi has some nerve dis Kim, while she mixes xanax.alcohol. Claims only to fly. Hope Ed knows this, if flies w/kids.” Yikes.
Brandi was none too pleased about Dana retweeting that message and fired off some tweets to Dana. Below are Brandi’s tweets –
“@Danawilkey its so sad to see how desperately u want back on the show. U will throw anyone under the buss.#ursoobviousitssad.”
“@Danawilkey I’m blocking you, cuz ur so sweet via texts and horrid on twitter. Wen u figure out who u really are hit me up!”
“I’m not gonna say anything bad about @danwilky she just doesn’t know who she is.My custody and family are just off limits. Moving on.”
Following the backlash from Brandi’s fans, Dana passive aggressivelytweeted –
“Lets not get crazy people! I RT alot of good and bad things.I thought the comment was interesting thats why I retweeted it. No other reason.”
Ultimately, Dana removed the re-tweet and apologized to Brandi. “Brandi blocked me so let her know I’m sorry I didnt mean anything by the RT…and good luck with everything. I’m jumping off. #rhobh,” tweeted Dana.
The Twitter war ended well as Brandi accepted Dana’s apology. “@Danawilkey I accept ur apology, just be u, the u u are in person. Xob” tweeted Brandi. Whew!

Last night’s episode of the Real Trainwrecks of Beverly Hills contained a whole lotta drama that belongs on a different show. Lisa opened SUR, Kim had some sort of ongoing cray-cray with Ken, whom she is now leaving, and Taylor begged the ladies to love her in what I’m sure she believes is a good rendition of Sally Fields’ ‘You really like me…’ Oscar speech.
Things start off with Kyle getting ready for the SUR launch party with her eldest daughter Farrah. After chasing Portia around, Kyle lets a bored seeming Farrah know that Taylor has left Russell and that she and Kim are still fighting. Farrah wonders why Kyle hasn’t figured out how to manage her relationship with Kim already. Why is Farrah more mature than Kyle?
Meanwhile Lisa is putting the finishing touches on SUR and running around in a panic micromanaging every detail before ditching Ken to finish the job and blowing out the door without so much as a kiss. Poor Ken will have to wait until next year for a cuddle. Lisa needs to accept her life is on camera and not be embarrassed to show affection to her husband.

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was fun except for the KimKyle-nanigans – that’s shenanigans by Kim and Kyle, if you can’t decipher the lingo. Kim, in addition to looking a hot mess and appearing hung over the entire trip also had Kyle taking every opportunity to argue with her; those two again managed to be completely inconsiderate to everyone, but luckily it ruined only Kyle’s good time.
Things start out on a high note with Adrienne and Paul hiking and holding hands. Double take! I love Paul in middle-aged tourist gear. All he needs is a fannypack to go with Adrienne’s “Visit The Palms, I need the money!” visor.
Kim finally arrives in Lanai! As for being late, “Oops” is all she has to say for herself. Kim is so excited to finally be there and unluckily gets placed in a room right next to Kyle. A frantic Kyle hears Kim’s voice and ignores Mauricio and margaritas(!) to eavesdrop on Kim. In the talking head, Kim states: “I chose to not *coke sniff* to talk to Kyle.” Nice.

The latest by Cedric is an article from Star Magazine in which he spills all sorts of secrets about the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast. In the article, Cedric states Kim Richards’saddiction issues are much worse than viewers can imagine, reveals Lisa’s true feelings about hubby Ken and costar Adrienne Maloof and also claims Adrienne might be in the worst financial condition out of all the cast.
Below are a few of Cedric’s “highlights” from the article:
Kim Richards’ Struggles With Alcohol Addiction – According to Cedric, an addition to alcohol is the least of Kim’s problems. “The truth is much darker,” he says. “I’m thankful Kim is now in rehab, hopefully getting some professional help.”
Lisa’s Feelings On Hubby Ken and Adrienne Maloof – Cedric says that despite their united font on the show, Lisa is “mortified and embarrassed,” by her husband Ken over some of his ‘ignorant jabs.’ As for Adrienne, Cedric states Lisa hates her neighbor and costar. “She feels Adrienne is not worthy of being on the show,” he says.
Cedric’s Relationship With Brandi Glanville– Cedric also reveals what has been reported previously, which is that he and newbie Brandi actually just met last year at a lunch organized by the show producers, and not during their modeling days in Europe a decade ago as they previously claimed. “It was a manufactured friendship to keep me on the show,” Cedric tells Star.
Why Was He Living With Lisa? And What Happened To Lisa’s Complaint? – “I moved out months before she landed the role,” says Cedric adding that producers convinced him to move back in for season 1 filming. As for the complaint Lisa filed against him with the cops last year over claims of a possible extortion, Cedric says Lisa’s case was weak. “I was never even contacted by police.”
The BH Housewives Lying About Their Wealth? – “Not everything is as it seems,” says Cedric, who claims seemingly uberrich Adrienne may actually be in the worst financial shape of them all. “They were forced to unload 98 percent of their beloved Palms Casino Resort,” claims Cedric. A report came out last year stating Adrienne was having financial difficulty and was forced to downgrade her lavish lifestyle. And last October, Adrienne admitted she had been “cutting back” on her lavish lifestyle.
Cedric, who will be appearing on the season 2 finale of the RHOBH, also claims producers of the show were the ones that invited him to Lisa’s party. “Lisa confronted me with some of the worst acting you’ll ever see on television. She claimed I wasn’t invited and told me to leave. It’s sums up all the phoniness and manufactured drama on the show,” he says.
Meanwhile, the RHOBH season 2 reunion filmed on Thursday and we’re hearing Kim Richards, who is still in rehab, did not attend. Below are some tweets from Kyle Richards, Taylor Armstrong and Andy Cohen after the taping:
Kyle tweeted – “Emotionally draining day. So hard to re live all the difficult moments this season on #RHOBH. Thank u to our “therapist” @BravoAndy. Xo”
Taylor tweeted – “Thanks for the great support! For the haters, when all the truth comes out I’ll try to post some delish “crow” recipes.” Really Taylor?
Andy tweeted – “Long day taping #RHOBH Reunion. Emotional, intense, dramatic. The wives deserve a cocktail right about now…. !”
No word yet on how many parts the reunion will be but it is scheduled to air on January 30.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON CEDRIC’S COMMENTS ABOUT THE BH HOUSEWIVES? DO YOU BELIEVE HIM?
On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsa little bit fun and fancy came back to us as the ladies sans Taylor embarked on a trip to Hawaii. Luckily, Loony Lips’ drama wasn’t far behind as she called mid-beach to let everyone know she had ditched her hubs for greener pastures. Hey, I heard Mohammed is single! What about that Martin? Kim also missed the show, but Brandi was there in her stead and ready for a full-frontal close-up! That was some bikini!
Things begin as The White Party rages on! Moments after Kyle and co. have kicked Taylor and Russell out for threatening to sue Camille, the ladies reconvene in the all-white living room to break down the situation again for the umpteenth time. Is she or isn’t she? Lying that is! No one seems to know what to believe. Even Taylor’s BFF is pretty mute about the situation. Adrienne is still pretty pissed that Taylor involved the ladies in all this mess — which I’m pretty sure she thinks is nonsense. Only Dana readily believes her BFFL. Hey girl wants to stay on RHOBH!

After a year of chaos and drama, Adrienne Maloof spent her holidays in NYC with husband, Paul Nassif, and their three sons where Adrienne was promoting her new shoe line Adrienne Maloof for Charles Jourdan. You can buy a pair, any pair you see on the Bravo Home Shopping Network for the fair and reasonable price of about $700. SOLD!
While in NYC, Adrienne spoke to WetPaint about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Talking about her role as the cast peacemaker, Adrienne credits her family business for giving her the skills to pay the bills. “I think, growing up in a family business with my brothers and having to, at the end of the day, make things work because you live together and you run a business together really prepared me for this job. Because it is, you know, a job. And I think it’s just in my personality to be a peacekeeper.”
As for exposing her friend Brandi Glanville to the crazy Kim Richards, Adrienne thinks Brandi is holding her own. “I met her through a mutual friend and she was going through a divorce,” Adrienne explains. “I thought it might be nice to bring her into the mix. So far, I think she’s doing quite well. It’s an adjustment having the cameras around all the time.”
Of the rest of this season Adrienne warns, “Oh, there’s a lot more drama coming, believe me,” and she is still deciding if she is on board for Season Three! “I’m still trying to get through Season 2! But I do enjoy doing the show and I’ve been having a good time. We’ll see.” And as for who of her cast mates are returning, Adrienne is keeping her lips sealed. “You’re going to hear a lot of rumors, it’s the nature of the beast. But I will say one thing: On this show, you never know!” Fair enough.
Speaking of cast members I hope don’t return who cause plenty of drama, Taylor Armstrong is apparently no longer mad at Camille Grammer and the feud is over. Oh, thank goodness — I was really concerned. RadarOnline reports that the two have patched things up and no longer have any animosity towards each other.
“Taylor just isn’t capable of being mad at anyone, period. There isn’t a feud between the two. On Sunday before this week’s episode aired, all of the Housewives, including Camille were texting Taylor offering words of support to her,” an insider reveals.
“All of the girls receive copies of the show that will air several days before so they can watch it before the public,” the insider adds. “Taylor hadn’t had the time to watch it when she started receiving the text messages. Camille was extremely gracious and sincere in her text messages.”
The insider goes on to point out that while the two are friendly, they are definitely not “like family” as Taylor described the casts relationship on a recent episode of WWHL. “Are these two best friends? No. But Taylor was extremely appreciative towards Camille in the days after Russell [Armstrong] committed suicide because of the support she offered Taylor.”
In other news, there is no new episode of RHOBH tonight and new episodes will resume airing in two weeks. Sads.
WHO DO YOU THINK SHOULD RETURN FOR SEASON 3? DO YOU BELIEVE CAMILLE AND TAYLOR ARE FRIENDS AGAIN?
