Camille, 42, Kim, 46, and Brandi, 38, opted for some teeny bikinis, while Kyle and Lisa remained covered up. Missing from the trip are Taylor Armstrong and Adrienne Maloof. As reported, Brandi, while not getting along with most of the other cast members, has become good friends with Camille.

First up is Kyle Richardswho revealed this week that she, like many many other housewives before her, is planning to pen her first book!
Kyle, who signed a deal with popular publisher HarperOne, reveals her book will have her sharing advice, sharing secrets for creating a happy marriage and also what it takes to be a responsible parent.
“I plan to focus on how I manage my crazy, busy life and will write about all my passions: My husband, family, work and the joy of juggling it all,” said Kyle to Variety. “I’m excited to share my favorite tips with fans.” For the time being, Kyle is busy filming the second season of the RHOBH which began filming in March and will reportedly air in October.
In other BH news, Camille Grammer is talking about her divorce once again, and this time, she is sharing that her two kids will not appear on the upcoming season of the show. The reason? Her ex-husband Kelsey Grammer refused to sign a release to allow Bravo to film the kids… a la Simon Barney.
“My ex wouldn’t sign the release, so you are not going to see my children,” Camille told E! News. “Mason really wanted to be a part of the show.”
Camille reveals her daughter Mason, 9, is upset about not being able to film but adds that her son Jude, 6, isn’t disappointed. “My son is too young and well, he’s a boy,” she added.
And while Camille would not confirm or deny the news of Brandi Glanville joining the cast, she does share her thoughts on Brandi. “She’s fun, she’s a hoot. She kind of tells it like it is,” says Camille before adding that she is able to relate to Brandi, who also suffered a very public break up after her actor husband Eddie Cibrian dumped her to be with his now homewrecker wife LeAnn Rimes.
“I feel bad for what she’s gone through,” said Camille. “We’ve gone through something very similar.” According to reports and tweets, it appears Camille and Brandi have hit it off and are good friends.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON KYLE WRITING A BOOK OF ADVICE? DO YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE WITH KIDS BEING KEPT OFF THE HOUSEWIVES SHOWS?
RadarOnline is reporting that Taylor, pictured above with husband Russell Armstrong on June 12 as they celebrated her 40th birthday, is battling with her castmates and causing tension during filming.
“Taylor is telling the other women exactly what she is thinking, and she isn’t holding anything back,” says a source. “Taylor has had some tense moments with Adrienne Maloof especially. Adrienne was completely taken aback by Taylor because she usually tried to avoid conflict. There has also been some drama between new housewife Brandi Glanville and Taylor.”
The article then goes on to claim that Taylor spent the first season avoiding confrontation and being a peacemaker. Yes, I’m scratching my head on that one as well. RadarOnline adds that since being in therapy this year, Taylor is now learning to be more assertive and speak her mind.
“Taylor has been getting counseling, which will be featured on the show this year, and she has been encouraged to stand-up for herself, and not let people, including her husband, Russell take advantage of her,” the source adds.
So when can we expect the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 2, which is currently filming, to premiere? The insider reveals Bravo “has plans to put the show on the air by October of this year.”
Meanwhile, Taylor came out last month attributing her very skinny frame to simply trying out some diet pills her husband brought home. Some of you wondered what those pills were, and according to Taylor’s twitter page, the diet supplement is called RegeneSlim. “They gave me lots of energy but not jitters. I do drink caffine though so, not sure about other people’s “jitter response.”” tweeted Taylor.
According to the latest issue of the magazine, Taylor, 39, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, has finally left the icy Russell after 7 years of marriage. A source close to Taylor confirms the news to the mag.
“They’ve had huge marital problems related to finances,” the insider says of the couple, who were most recently seen together with daughter Kennedy, 5, at a May 7 Lollipop Theater Network event in California.
The news of a split doesn’t come as a surprise as their marital issues were well documented on the first season of the Bravo hit show which had Taylor comparing her marriage to a business arrangement. Plus reports came out months ago that the couple was undergoing marriage counseling.
The insider adds that the split has taken a physical toll on Taylor. “She’s emaciated — down 10, 15 pounds,” the source reveals. A report came out last month questioning if Taylor was anorexic after shocking new bikini photos of her came out showing a very skinny frame.
Meanwhile, the drama doesn’t end there for the RHOBH. While most of us assumed new housewife Brandi Glanville would be clashing with Lisa Vanderpump (Brandi’s good friends with Lisa’s former houseguest Cedric), it seems it is Kyle Richards who is clashing with Brandi on the show.
UsWeekly reports Brandi, 38 and Kyle, 42, have been “going at it” since filming began on season 2. “They got into a fight and Brandi lunged at Kyle,” reveals a source. “They had to be separated by producers.”
PEOPLE magazine is reporting that Brandi is “very happy” about joining the RHOBH and that “she really wanted to be on the show.” As for what we can expect on the second season, sources reveal Kim Richards is more assertive while sister Kyle has taken a more laid-back approach. Also, the entire cast has been more accepting of Camille Grammer, who clashed with Kyle on the first season.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR LEAVING RUSSELL? ARE YOU SURPRISED? PLUS THOUGHTS ON THE CLASH BETWEEN BRANDI AND KYLE?
UPDATE - Taylor’s rep is now denying the split to PEOPLE magazine. A source states that while “their relationship is not without trouble… they’re still together.” The source also denies any financial difficulties. Only time will tell if the original Us Weekly story is true as US tends to be a reliable media outlet.
It was reported days ago that Brandi was in talks with Bravo, but TMZ has since confirmed Brandi has signed the dotted line to join the cast. Also confirming the news are other multiple media outlets including E! News.
According to E!, Brandi beat out other hopefuls to get the gig including Ayda Field. “Bravo actually had an offer out to Robbie Williams‘ wife, actress Ayda Field, but it didn’t work out because of contractual issues,” a source reveals. “That left an open spot for Brandi, and they are excited she is joining the cast. Everyone is getting along fine…for now.”
Brandi has already began filming scenes which brings us to another question: Is Faye Resnick also a new housewife on the show? E! reports that answer is no. However, thanks to her clashing with Camille Grammerlast year, Faye will “be featured more on season two of the hit show.”
And back to Brandi, who will without a doubt be a controversial character on the show. Brandi first came into the tabloid limelight back in March, 2009 when UsWeekly broke the news that her then husband, actor Eddie Cibrian, was cheating on her with country singer LeAnn Rimes, who was then married to her former backup dancer Dean Sheremet.
At first Eddie, 37, publicly denied the affair and Brandi decided to give him another chance. However Eddie and Brandi ultimately split up in July, 2009 after Brandi discovered Eddie and LeAnn, 28, were still carrying on with their sordid affair. A month later, the disgusting twosome, Eddie and LeAnn, went public with their relationship, leading up to a nasty feud between Brandi and LeAnn. Brandi did not hesitate to publicly bash both Eddie and LeAnn over their actions and for breaking up her family.
Brandi and Eddie have two sons together, Mason, 7, and Jake, 4. Fast forward to today, Eddie and LeAnn recently tied the knot on April 22, 2011, and Brandi was reportedly unhappy that her sons were not told of the nuptials in advance.
Brandi, 38, is a former model and make-up artist. She most recently made headlines for a DUI arrest last October and pled no contest to the charges on April 1. She was sentenced to 36 months probation, 3 months of alcohol education courses, and a $390 fine.
And as we reported back in February, Brandi is good friends with Cedric Martinez, the same Cedric who had a falling out with Lisa Vanderpump. Now that Brandi is a part of the cast, we can expect some guaranteed fireworks between the two ladies. In fact, Lisa made an interesting tweet yesterday. “Mmmm ….today was challenging….mmmm housewife moment..” tweeted Lisa.
TMZ is also reporting today that Eddie is making it crystal clear he doesn’t want his kids on the Real Housewives (sour grapes much?) and is even threatening legal action if their two sons appear on the show.
Brandi is reportedly pissed as she believes Eddie is imposing a huge double standard. The reason? He and the kids just appeared in a massive spread in People magazine with his co-adulterer LeAnn. Who knew Eddie had morals and standards? In the meantime, the 2nd season of the RHOBH continues to film! More photos of Brandi below -

UsWeekly is reporting that Brandi, jilted ex-wife of actor Eddie Cibrian who left her in 2009 for country singer LeAnnRimes, is still in talks with the Bravo network to join the hit franchise.
If you recall, reports came out months ago that Brandi was being considered to join the cast after she was photographed out and about with Lisa Vanderpump’s former pet house guest Cedric Martinez. That news however quickly died down after the second season of the RHOBH began filming weeks ago.
According to a source, the storyline of Brandi, a 38-year-old former model, would of course be about her issues with her ex Eddie, 37, and his new lady love/wife LeAnn, 28. “Wouldn’t you be upset with them?” asks a source close to the mom of sons Mason, 7, and Jake, 4.
Brandi is reportedly even more upset by the sudden nuptials of Eddie and LeAnn a little over a week ago, with the source adding that Brandi and her sons were not told in advance about the wedding. A source close to LeAnn however counters stating, “the boys were told about the wedding three days in advance.”
The Hollywoodlife confirms the UsWeekly story, stating that Brandi is signing on while adding that Playboy playmate Jessica Hall (the same gal caught kissingKendra Wilkinson) is also in talks to join the cast as well.
“Brandi has already started filming for ‘Real Housewives’,” a source close to the show reveals. “She hasn’t officially signed anything yet but she’s interacted with members of the cast on camera.” As for Jessica, she is said to be “negotiating her contract” with Bravo.
It’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with all the reported names in talks to join the cast. In addition to Brandi and Jessica, Faye Resnick, Jillian Barberie, Ayda Field,and Jeanie Buss have also been mentioned in the rumor mill. E! news reported a few weeks ago that the final spot for the new housewife came down to Faye and Ayda.
Plus filming on the second season began over a month and a half ago, so we can’t help but wonder if Bravo is planning to add more than one housewife to the show. Perhaps one of the six original BH ladies is leaving mid season. The addition of two new housewives would bring the cast to a total of 8 which seems to be a pretty large number for an already drama filled franchise.
In other news, Kyle Richards was photographed on Monday walking the streets of Beverly Hills with daughters Farrah Aldjufrie and Portia. And it seems Kyle and Farah were a bit busy with having their photos snapped by the paps as poor little Portia walked right into a pole. Thankfully, Portia was okay afterwards. Those pics are below.

UPDATE: TMZ has just confirmed that Brandi has indeed joined the cast of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. According to TMZ, it is a done deal and she has already began filming scenes for the show. In fact, Brandi herself confirmed the news today during an event. Something tells us LeAnn is not going to be happy about this news!

This is despite getting her lawyers to get her out of her contract with Bravo after being declared the most hated housewife ever. However things have since taken a turn in Camille’s favor as the actions & behavior of some of her fellow housewives have without a doubt overshadowed hers.
“Camille is coming back; she just wants the public to feel sorry for her a little longer because of the whole Kelsey [Grammer] thing, so she’s not announcing it yet,” reveals a Bravo insider to E!
And what about Kim Richards? “It’s 99 percent certain that she won’t do season two,” explains the source.
It seems Kim wants nothing else to do with the show following her major blowout with sister Kyle Richards on the season finale. “There is so much more going on than what was shown on TV,” dishes the RHOBH insider. “There was a lot of tension building up over the years, they have a complicated relationship.”
As for the status of Kim’s relationship with Kyle today, the source reveals they are still working on it. “Kim, Kathy [Hilton] and Kyle all love each other, but their dynamic is complicated,” adds the source.
As for who might be replacing Kim, TMZ reported a while back that Bravo is talking to Brandi Glanville, Jeanie Buss, and Jennifer Flavin Stallone. It has also been rumored that Bravo is looking to get rid of Taylor Armstrong though we’re not so sure Bravo or any network for that matter would want to get rid of their resident sh*t starter pot stirrer.
And airing tonight on Bravo at 10/9c is a special director’s cut of the now infamous dinner from hell. A preview clip of the ladies in the limo looking at Camille‘s porn photos from her past is below -

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 Armstrongbecause 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.
