Adrienne Maloof

There have been rumblings and whispers about Taylor Armstrong since she began appearing on Bravo’s the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but those whispers have only gotten louder in recent weeks.

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 Cohen at 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.

According to new reports by TMZ, Bravo is looking to shake things up on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!

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 Armstrong because 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.

Part 1 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion aired last night as the BH ladies attempted to settle the score on some unresolved issues.

The reunion begins with Andy Cohen greeting and complimenting the ladies, you know, easing them in for the verbal smackdown that is about to ensue! The first question is about plastic surgery and Lisa reveals she’s only had botox and fillers, while we learn that Paul is not Adrienne‘s plastic surgeon. Kyle then comes close to guessing the price of a gallon of milk, while Taylor doesn’t believe 60k is too much for a kid’s birthday party though Lisa thinks it’s “bloody ridiculous.”

The topic turns to the ladies ginormous mansions and we find out Lisa‘s home is actually 17,000 sq ft and not the 15,480 posted on her home listing. Lisa reveals she now wants to downsize and Andy tries to be messy wants to know what Lisa would consider a cozy home. At this point I’m thinking don’t take the bait Lisa, don’t give a figure, don’t do it! Lisa is smart and doesn’t take the bait, simply stating a cozy home is one in which she doesn’t have to page her husband. Good answer as there was really no right answer for a question like that.

Part 1 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs today and according to Bravo, it promises to be explosive!

On the first part airing tonight on Bravo at 9/8c, the ladies regroup with Andy Cohen to rehash the biggest fights of the season. We will get to see Camille vs. Kyle, Kyle vs. Kim, and Kim vs. Taylor. Camille will also attempt to set the record straight on being called “the most hated housewife” in the history of the franchise as well as details of her split from Kelsey.

Watch What Happens Live will not be airing tonight.

In other BH news, Popeater is reporting that Kelsey Grammer, 55, might be getting ready to do the unthinkable, which is to invite his estranged wife Camille Grammer, 42, to his upcoming wedding with fiance Kayte Walsh, 29.

The reason? Kelsey wants so badly for his kids to be present at his wedding that he’s willing to invite Camille if that’s what it takes. So will Camille be attending? The jury is still out on that but D.D. a friend of Camille’s does manage to sing her great praises in the Popeater article.

“Camille is an amazing human being,” D.D. a friend of Camille tells Popeater. “For her, it’s all about her children. She’s willing to put her personal hurt aside to be a great mom.”

Another source tells Popeater that Camille has now come to terms with Kelsey’s decision to remarry and her main concern is putting their kids first.

Allrighty, below is a preview clip of tonight’s episode. Kim Richards calls out the delusional Taylor Armstrong on her violent threats despite claiming to be an advocate against domestic violence.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW AND TONIGHT’S REUNION PART 1?

While some of her costars are arguably not having their best week ever, it can be argued the Camille Grammer is having her best one yet, you know, since the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills started airing on national television.

Following the volatile finale episode of the hit show, many fans this week are asking Camille who? As Camille’s costars Taylor Armstrong and Kyle Richards are both neck in neck for the new most hated least liked BH housewife.

Plus in numerous interviews given in recent weeks, four of her costars, including Kyle, have mentioned they would like to see her back for a second season of the show.

Kyle told E! news that despite their differences, she would welcome Camille’s return. “Would I want her to be there [if there was another season]? Yes, I would,” Kyle revealed two days after the reunion was filmed. “I know that we’re very different and we’re like oil and water together, but I can’t help but think what she’s going through in her personal life might have something to do with that. It’d be interesting to see what happens when things in her life have calmed down a bit and maybe we can work things out a little better.”

And just this week, Adrienne Maloof also voiced her support for a Camille come back. “I personally think that she will come back,” Adrienne said to E!. “I also personally think she should because going out the way that she’s going to go out, it’s probably in her best interest.” Good point.

And unlike her other costars (with the exception of Kyle) who kiss up to Camille refuse to utter a word of criticism against Camille in the press, Adrienne gives a refreshing and honest answer when it comes to some of Camille’s actions on the show this season. “I have to tell you, it’s hard to defend the things that come out of her mouth,” said Adrienne. “I have to really be honest about that. Because I even had to say, “Wow! What did she just say?’ I just don’t know her to be that way…I don’t know what goes on inside her little head.”

Lisa Vanderpump and Taylor have also revealed in different interviews that they would like Camille to come back to the show. Must say if Camille had any smarts in her, she should just continue to relax, keep her mouth shut, make plans for her soon to be $50 million fortune, while watching what happens. It’s safe to say most of her actions over the season have now been over shadowed by the finale episode.

And finally, a video which appears to show a pretty drunk/inebriated Taylor Armstrong is making its rounds today. The footage, which was actually shot back in October 2010, shows Taylor talking to paparazzi with costar Kyle and Faye Resnick in Hollywood.

Taylor appears to have a hard time standing up straight as Kyle can be seen at one point trying to hold her up. When Kyle is asked who was responsible for the most drama of the season, she replies, “The drama queen? I think we already voted Kim as the drama queen. Yes Kim is the drama queen.” Who knew Kim was such a drama queen? As for who is the most scandalous, Kyle simply laughs it off and doesn’t mention a name.

That video footage is below. While the video is over 11 minutes, only the first 4 minutes and 30 seconds are about the BH ladies.

No word on whether or not Taylor spent a week in rehab after this video was made.

Days following the emotional finale episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the fight between sisters Kim and Kyle Richards continues to remain a hot topic.

During the fight Kyle referred to her sister Kim as “insane,” “sick,” a “liar,” “demented,” and lastly an “alcoholic.” At one point Kyle even got up from her seat as if to attack Kim, who hid behind costar Adrienne Maloof. During the ugly fight, Kim also accused her sister of stealing her house and called her “phony.”

Following the airing of the episode, Kyle is now speaking out on the events that transpired both in a statement to Bravo and in her Bravo blog.

“The events that transpired that evening were quite unfortunate and should never have occurred on or off camera,” said Kyle in a statement released to Bravo. “There are a lot of elements to the story that viewers didn’t see. This has been difficult for our entire family as we both said and did things that we regret. My sister and I love each other very much we want to move forward and put this behind us.”

Kyle also took to her Bravo blog to try to clear up some things. Excerpts from Kyle’s blog below -

“Throughout the season I have come across as angry toward my sister. At times, it seemed unwarranted. I know that. I know how bad it looked. The truth is, I was angry. There were problems brewing between my sister and me off camera. I’m not good at hiding my feelings as well as others, so I brought my feelings in front of the cameras. Viewers only know what they see, and sometimes, they saw me reacting with force and emotion that didn’t seem to make sense.

First off, let me say, I love my sister so much. Sometimes, I wish I loved her a little less. You may be thinking, “You have a funny way of showing it.” And you’re not wrong. However, our arguments were never about what was happening at that moment. My mom used to say, “They’re crying about the apples, but it’s really the oranges,” and that’s exactly what was happening here. The tension between Kim and me was never about her not “having my back” in New York. There is so much more to it than that. I didn’t want to come out and say what it was that was really bothering me because this is a private family matter. It would have saved me a lot of criticism, believe me, but it’s not just my story to tell. It’s Kim’s story too.

After this horrible argument between Kim and I, we didn’t speak for a long time. My heart was broken and I suffered an incredible amount of anxiety and panic attacks. Next to losing my mother, this was the most difficult time of my life. It is so difficult for me to even write about it now.”

Meanwhile, Kim has been completely silent since the episode aired. She has given no statements to the media and her twitter page hasn’t been updated since Jan. 18. We will be sure to let you know once Kim decides to break her silence. By the way, the above photo of Kim & Kyle was taken back in October, 2010.

Hmm, have a lot of thoughts on Kyle’s words but I will leave that to you all. I will state though that it’s interesting how certain things are now Kim’s story to tell after her ‘alcoholism’ was blurted out on the show.

The first part of the reunion airs this Thursday, Jan. 27 at 10/9c on Bravo.

The finale of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills aired last night and the ending proved to be both powerful and emotional. But if there’s one thing I learned last night, it is that Bravo needs to do whatever it takes to sign Taylor Armstrong for season 2! Forget Camille. Taylor is solely responsible for the 3 major smackdowns that took place this season, thus making the show a success. Think about it, Taylor completely instigated the NYC fight between Camille & Kyle which spilt into the dinner from hell. As if that wasn’t enough, the phony sly lady instigated the limo fight between Kim & Kyle by confronting Kim on something she was solely responsible for. Oh yes, Bravo needs to crave it to any demands Taylor might have. She is indeed needed back for a second season.

The episode begins where we left off last week, with Camille and Kelsey getting ready to go to the Tonys. As they ride in the limo together, things still seem very awkward between the two as they, well mostly Camille, continue to try to put on a happy face for their entourage. I once again wonder who’s idea it really was to have Camille come to NYC for the awards.

Next up, Kyle decides to pay her Psychic/Medium Rebecca a visit. According to Kyle, Rebecca is the real deal unlike Camille’s clown aka Allison. Kyle reveals she brought her mom along with her as I can only assume she means her ashes. “I didn’t know if you were going to think I was crazy or not,” asks Kyle. Well, maybe a little crazy Kyle but not that much. “I also brought a lock of her hair,” adds Kyle. Okay and now we’re at a level 10 crazy. Rebecca then goes on to tell Kyle that she is currently having a conflict with another woman. Kyle agrees though that statement could easily apply to 99.98% of the world’s female population. Rebecca reveals some other things that ring true to Kyle and the session ends.

Finally, the long awaited over-sized finale episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs tonight!

On the 13th episode of the very successful first season, all thanks to Camille?, the ladies celebrate Taylor’s birthday with a lavish bash on a hotel rooftop—but it’s a fiery conflict between Kim and Kyle that takes the cake. Elsewhere, Camille’s marital issues reach the breaking point. The episode titled “Unforgivable” airs at 9/8c on Bravo.

Watch What Happens Live – Though the guide says Debbie Gibson is the guest on tonight’s show, Adrienne Maloof tweeted this week that both she and Taylor Armstong will be on the show following the finale.

Also in a new interview with PEOPLE magazine, Kyle Richards reveals she is dreading tonight’s episode. “All I can say is this is what I’ve been dreading the whole season,” Richards told PEOPLE. “What’s coming up created an enormous amount of anxiety for me and it’s a very emotional and very difficult episode to see.”

Kyle adds that she hopes viewers will look at the whole picture when it comes to her blowout with sister Kim on the finale. “I get some flack for my relationship with my sister, but you’re just seeing parts that are on screen so it’s very hard to understand a relationship that has been so many years in the making,” Kyle, 42, said.

In more BH news, the National Enquirer is reporting that Camille Grammer has officially signed on to do a second season, but get this, Bravo reportedly had to cave in to a lot of her demands.

According to the Enquirer, Camille made the deal on Tuesday during a meeting with producers of the show, who reluctantly met her demands. The National Enquirer is not the most credible source so only time will tell if the story is true or not.

And finally, Lisa Vanderpump is a guest on The Ellen Show today to dish about the finale. Ellen DeGeneres tweeted a backstage photo of Lisa with Giggy in a baby stroller. Click the continue reading button to see the photo, and a preview clip of tonight’s episode below -
