Kelly Bensimon wants you to be hot, and she’s going to help you achieve that hotness. How? By penning a new book, of course! It’s a good thing too, because it seems her Housewife status may be in jeopardy as rumors swirl that Bravo is looking to replace the entire New York Housewives cast. But more on that later.

PEOPLE is reporting that Kelly has entered into a deal with St. Martin’s Press to author her fourth book, tentatively (and here’s hoping permanently) entitled I Want to Make You Hot. Kelly reveals, “[I feel] good about myself, my fluctuating weight and my life.” She continues, “Hot isn’t about a waist size or a number on a scale. We can control how we look and feel, so let’s get started together.”

She hopes to use her personal experiences, as well as several recipes, to empower readers to achieve a more positive sense of self. In the book’s press release, Kelly invites readers to “[s]pend seven days with me and my expert friends and we’ll have fun with exercise, eat better, dress amazing, have more fun and smile through a life that’s too short.” Well, I don’t mind if do. Look for it in 2012!

It could be a good thing that Kelly has found another source of income, as a New York Post article reports that Bravo is hoping to take the show in the direction of Beverly Hills by possibly replacing the entire cast. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills portrayed luxury and excess worlds away from any Housewives franchise (with the sky-high ratings to boot), and the network is hoping to recreate the same opulence in the Big Apple.

Sources reveal that Bravo executives have been quietly approaching the most elite of New York City society in hopes of replacing the present cast. “They want an entirely new cast to replicate Beverly Hills.” The source continues, “They want rich, rich women, like Adrienne Maloof and Camille Grammer, dripping in glamour and $10 million penthouses. And they don’t want to fake it. They are discreetly reaching out to women who fit the bill.”

Watch out Jill and the gang, there could be a whole new clique of mean girls on Fifth Avenue! Perhaps the current cast should continue focusing on ventures outside of the series to secure their bank accounts and shopping sprees. Regardless of the cast, I’ll be following all of the NYC ladies, present and future. Will you?

Great news today for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans!

Following weeks of numerous rumors and reports, both the HollywoodLife and RadarOnline sites are now confirming that all of the Beverly Hills Housewives will be returning for a second season! And Yes, that includes both Kim Richards and Camille Grammer.

Sources tell both sites that it wasn’t easy getting Camille and Kim to return to the show.

“Camille was on the fence and really didn’t know if she wanted all her business exposed for a second time especially after her painful divorce,” sources tell RadarOnline. “She thought about it and re-thought about it before coming to the conclusion that she’d return for a second season.”

As for Kim, the HollywoodLife blog reports, “Kim and her sister Kyle obviously have a lot to work on, but they have both signed on as well.” A source also claims to Radar that Kim went to Bravo demanding more money for a second season, and wanted to be the highest paid castmember on the show due to the scrutiny she received on the show’s finale episode.

Meanwhile, another “source” tells the HollywoodLife that Taylor Armstrong was on the fence about returning to the show. “Taylor was hesitating because of the spotlight on her marriage which caused problems for her and her husband Russell, who is actually a genuinely good man,” reveals the source. “They actually have a pretty happy marriage but it wasn’t portrayed that way, but she wants another chance at showing how they really are in love with each other.” We’ll let you take a gander at who this source could be.

Whatever the case, all the ladies are signed on and Radar even reports filming has already started for Season 2!

“There is already drama brewing,” sources said. “Keep your eyes on this one. It’s going to be explosive.” No word on whether or not Bravo will be adding a new housewife to the show though it is expected they will.

Well that was quick.

With the ink barely dry from his divorce, Kelsey Grammer, 56, tied the knot for the fourth time yesterday with wife #4 Kayte Walsh, 29.

The ceremony took place Friday afternoon at the Longacre Theater in New York City, where Kelsey recently starred in the Tony-winning revival of the musical La Cage aux Folles.

“Kelsey Grammer and Kayte Walsh were married today at a private ceremony for family and friends,” his rep said in a statement yesterday. The guests at the wedding included Kelsey’s grown daughter, actress Spencer Grammer, who read a poem, Kayte’s brother, who sang a song, and Kelsey’s 5-year-old son Jude (son with Camille). Kelsey and Camille’s daughter Mason, 8, reportedly didn’t attend the bash due to a talent show.

Following the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests headed to the reception at the Plaza Hotel where they dined on a four-course dinner menu which accommodated the vegetarian bride and also included king oyster mushroom carpaccio, wild mushroom risotto, grilled filet mignon with blue potato gratin and bittersweet chocolate tart. The price? A mere $400 a plate. Wedding photos of Kelsey and Kate below.

As for Camille Grammer, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she wasn’t in attendance of course though RadarOnline was able to interview her on Thursday night, the eve of the wedding.

It’s “bittersweet,” said Camille. “Kelsey and I spent 14 years together and built a great life for ourselves. We have two children, and they mean the world to me.”

“I do wish him well and I’ll miss him,” Camille added. “We spent many great years together and we’ve been through a lot. But at the end of the day, he’s made his decision and I’ll be fine. I’ve got a great support group, real and true friends and I’m moving forward with my life. I was sad and wanted to make things work but I’m completely fine now. I’m moving on.”

And finally, some of the BH housewives and Andy Cohen hit up Lisa Vanderpump’s Villa Blanca restaurant on Thursday night. It was Lisa, Adrienne Maloof, Kyle Richards and Camille Grammer with Andy. Seemingly absent were Taylor Armstrong and Kim Richards. Kim’s absence is no surprise but Taylor’s absence is interesting, especially in light of some recent comments by former BFF Kyle.

According to RadarOnline, the group was there to celebrate the birthday of Kyle’s manager. Some photos tweeted by Andy and Kyle from that night below.

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.
