Camille Grammer

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 Richards if 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 aggressively tweeted

“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!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON BRAVO WANTING TO KEEP TAYLOR AND BRANDI WHILE POSSIBLY FIRING CAMILLE? THOUGHTS ON BRANDI AND DANA’S TWITTER FEUD? WAS DANA OUT OF LINE?


This season Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has become a cesspool of drama – the unsavory kind, not the really dishy and delightful Dynasty kind.

In the latest sad news concerning the cast members of Bravo’s most depressing series, serial fibber Taylor Armstrong‘s friends are yet again expressing concern about her drinking.

The professional drama stirrer has also, apparently been stirring a lot of cocktails as of late – so many that friends and acquaintances are urging Taylor to consider rehab after numerous drunken episodes – several of which have been included in this season’s never-ending storyline.

“Taylor’s closest friend and advisers have told her that she needs to go to rehab,” a source tells RadarOnline. “Taylor admits that alcohol has become her crutch in dealing with Russell [Armstrong]‘s suicide, and coping with the drama of being on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”

“While Taylor doesn’t drink every day, or during the day, and she certainly doesn’t drink and drive, whenever she does drink, she gets drunk,” the source clarifies. “Taylor primarily drinks in the evenings, at home alone, and when out socializing with friends She isn’t drunk in front of her daughter Kennedy,” the insider insists.

And Taylor admits she has a problem (only one?) but she isn’t ready to address it just yet! “Taylor recognizes that alcohol is playing a much larger role in her life than she would like, but she is refusing to go to rehab, primarily because of Kennedy. Kennedy has already endured the loss of her father, and Taylor just doesn’t want to spend any time away from her, period.”

“The network bosses haven’t gotten involved with Taylor’s drinking problem, yet though,” the source alleges. “They will if they need to, but Taylor has assured them she is handling it.”

Moving on, Camille Grammer recently learned that her ex-husband Kelsey Grammer is becoming a father again with new wife and former mistress Kayte Walsh, who is pregnant with twins. Kelsey announced the exciting news after his win at the Golden Globes, apparently shocking Camille, who had no idea!

“Camille and the children had no idea,” a source close to the family contends. “They found out about it from the media. Once again, selfish Kelsey decided to do what’s best for him with no concern for his current children. He needs to stop talking about his private life in public. It’s very hurtful for the children he already has.”

Camille recently shared on Twitter that the twins came about via “in vitro” and claims she has known Kelsey was expecting for “a couple of months,” but wasn’t aware that it was twins. Now she is speaking to The Huffington Post about her feelings on the matter. “It’s so unfortunate that he still talks about private matters,” Camille mused. “It’s hurtful to me and its disrespectful to our children.”

“He’s not thinking of the kids when he’s doing stuff like that. My daughter is 10 years old, so she’s able to watch. She’s aware of what’s going on. She hears it from her friends at school, but my son is too young. He’s still only seven. Still, I think it’s disrespectful.” I quite agree Camille!

In some very interesting news concerning RHOBH, apparently after an incredibly tumultuous season that left fans frustrated and in need of Prozac, Bravo may be re-evaluating who returns for season three over mounting concerns that the storyline is alienating viewers! Is it possible that they are again responding to the fans’ opinions? Is it possible that Taylor has replaced Jill Zarin as the most hated Housewife ever?!

Confirming that casting is still up in the air, Camille recently confessed she has no idea who will be returning next year- and they are on the hunt for new ladies!

“I guess they decided who they want and I guess they are going to start casting, looking for new housewives,” Camille spilled. “They told me they were going to start looking so it wasn’t behind my back. They were like, ‘Sorry we are doing a big casting call.’ I was like, ‘Thanks.'”

“I had a good year so I would want to go back for a third season, but they haven’t asked me yet, so I wonder what’s going on with that,” she continued. Camille doesn’t hesitate to admit the news worries her, but she understands that network’s position following a season that was troubling to viewers and doesn’t fit the image the show seeks to represent.

“When you watch the scenes between Taylor and Russell, it is uncomfortable,” Camille asserts. “I think some of the viewers feel that way. I’m glad that some of our viewers are coming back around and joining the season and our viewership is up. We took a little dip because of what happened, and I think we are on a upswing, so that is really positive.”

The Hollywood Reporter followed up on the story and was told by a Bravo rep that the network does not comment on cast negotiations and no official announcement for the third season has been made!

I predict fan favorites Lisa and Adrienne will stay (provided they want to), along with Kyle – who, love her or hate her, really adds crazy drama to the line-up. Camille has emerged as a likable character this season and many fans enjoy her straightforward and humorous approach. Still, being told things haven’t been decided yet may not look good for Season One’s most controversial Housewife, but I believe she will return next season.

My guess is also that Bravo will sign on Brandi as a full-fledged housewife. I think it goes without saying that Dana will not be returning!

As for Taylor, after seeing the majority of the editing for this season I believe Bravo is well aware of her schemes and those of Russell. I think Monday night’s episode was filmed to “save face” so to speak after the network worried it would have legal ramifications stemming from Taylor’s claims of alleged abuse; and given the fan backlash, along with the very negative direction this season took, Bravo will hopefully replace her. Numerous fans have posted that they will discontinue watching if Taylor remains on the show and online petitions have emerged to remove her from the cast. At this point I don’t believe viewers are willing to give Taylor another chance to redeem herself.

I also think Kim will ultimately remain part of the cast, unless she decides to leave. Kim would be a good recurring castmate, but she obviously doesn’t have the interest or tenacity to withstand full-time filming. Viewers are heavily invested in the Richards’ sister storyline, which incidentally helped skyrocket the show to success with the Season One finale. Next season could show a rebuilding of their relationship, which would be a welcome change in their dynamic. And Kim is apparently very hard up for money, so there’s that.

Rumors have also been bandied about that Kathy Hilton is a possible contender for a spot on the show – and we know Bravo likes to get involved in family drama (see: New Jersey, Real Housewives of)! Personally I don’t think Kathy would participate since she’s never even made a guest appearance. My opinion is that Bravo should recognize what fans want to see on the Beverly Hills show and I think they need to return to the fabulous lifestyles of the rich and outrageous!

DO YOU THINK TAYLOR HAS A PROBLEM WITH ALCOHOL? DO YOU THINK KIM WILL CONTINUE WITH TREATMENT? WHO DO YOU WANT TO SEE RETURN NEXT SEASON? WHO NEEDS TO GET THE AXE?


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.

Following this season’s last week’s drama with Kim Richards on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kim’s sister Kyle Richards and her costar Lisa Vanderpump are now speaking out.

In her latest Bravo blog, Kyle opens up about her reasons for wanting to confront Kim about her habitual tardiness and behavior as well as touches on her feelings on Kim’s boyfriend Ken Blumenfeld. Below’s an excerpt from Kyle’s blog:

“The next day Kim finally arrived! At this point I was feeling that she had already missed a lot of the fun. I never saw her all day until dinner that night. When Kim and Ken showed up and acted like it was just any other day. I was beyond frustrated. I expected her to explain what happened (truthfully) and or apologize. It wasn’t like it was a secret. The entire group knew what was going on. Kim likes to brush things under the carpet. I like to put them on the table. The reason I need to do that with my sister is if we don’t address what is bothering us, it builds up and then our relationship becomes very passive aggressive — as you witnessed in Season 1. I wanted my sister to just be honest — not just about Hawaii but about everything. Mauricio has never had an argument with Kim before, but he has witnessed my hurt and frustration and felt compelled to say something.”

Kyle remarks about Ken issues:

“On our way to dinner that night we had barely spoken. She stayed near Ken and laughed with the girls but never mentioned the boat or barely seeing any of us on what was supposed to be Mauricio’s birthday party. At dinner, I could no longer pretend everything was OK. Ken wasn’t helping matters either. I didn’t trust him and felt he was not a positive influence on my sister. He knew I didn’t care for him and made sure I knew he felt the same about me. No love lost there. I was very worried about my sister and didn’t care what he thought about me.”

In her bravo blog, Lisa does’t hold back when she discusses Kim’s behavior in Hawaii:

“…Things were simmering and feelings were running high with regard to Kim’s strange behavior. Her stories didn’t tally up with the exasperating tales she had relayed to us. I was beginning to lose patience. After so many months of feeble excuses, it didn’t matter to me with whom she arrived or what paltry tale or trivial excuse was made. I didn’t want it to ruin our break. And I knew my input would have been irrelevant to her anyway.

Kyle and Mauricio were not content to accept her dismissive behavior and questioned her relentlessly at the dinner table. It was an uncomfortable scenario. I tried to support Kyle and urged her not to cry, as this was the birthday dinner and I knew it had great potential for disaster if tempers were unleashed. At what point do you come to the conclusion that some things never change? We had endured six months of a plethora of excuses, of no shows, of fabricated reasons. It was becoming a joke — just not a funny one.

So we left. And then I saw the footage of how they showed no remorse at keeping us waiting. They seemed content to indulge themselves in their own company with no thought for the fact that we were here as a group and at Mauricio’s invitation.”

PHOTOS – KIM RICHARDS STEPS OUT POST REHAB!

In other RHOBH news, the Rumor Fix blog is reporting that on December 21, 2011, four months after Russell Armstrong’s tragic suicide, the IRS imposed a tax lien on his property for failure to pay $23,689.94 in back taxes.

Unfortunately for Taylor Armstrong, she will likely be responsible for this tax bill as she remains married to Russell and the lien on Russell’s property stays with his estate.

And finally, Camille Grammer’s ex-husband Kelsey Grammer is expecting twins with his former mistress new wife Kayte Walsh, 32! Kelsey, who won an award at last night’s Golden Globes Awards, reveals he is excited to be a father again.

“I’m really looking forward to meeting these new arrivals,” Kelsey, 56, told reporters last night. “Fatherhood’s always different, based upon the character that comes into your life. They arrive and tell you what you have to do.”

A new episode of the RHOBH airs tonight on Bravo! On the 19th episode this season titled ‘Night of a Thousand Surprises,’ drama flows when Lisa throws a launch party for her new lounge. Meanwhile, Kim discloses the truth about her new boyfriend.

The episode airs at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!

Following her stint in rehab, Kim Richards stepped out for the first time last night with big sister Kathy Hilton.

The two were snapped as they dined at the popular Mr. Chows restaurant in Beverly Hills. The photo of Kim and Kathy is below. If you recall, Kim checked into rehab back in early December for what sources described as “alcohol addiction along with other substance abuse problems.” After spending about 40 days at the Betty Ford Clinic, Kim ultimately checked out early this week.

Meanwhile,  Kyle Richards is making the rounds following the latest episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which featured another blow-out with her troubled sister Kim Richards. It seems these two will be going back and forth forever, long after the spotlight of Bravo cameras stops charting their every dispute.

Speaking to Extra, Kyle discussed her decision to go on RHOBH and answers what regrets she has about airing all of her sisterly grievances in the public spectrum. “It’s nothing like what I thought,” Kyle explains, “but we are having fun.”

As for those regrets, Kyle “of course” has some. “You know, last season the fight with my sister Kim, I regret that. But I don’t regret it as much as I regretted this season’s game night. I regretted that a lot more because that just wasn’t me. I wasn’t true to myself.”

“Season one, that was when I was dealing with my sister. A lot of people didn’t understand that and that is what I was feeling,” Kyle elaborates. As for why she is always in the middle of all the drama, “A lot of the Housewives will come to me when they have an issue,” Kyle claims, “so I’ve kind of been their sounding board a lot of the times.”

“Plus I’m not someone who can keep things to myself. If I’m thinking something or feeling something I have to get it off my chest. Which doesn’t always go over well,” she adds. We’ve noticed Kyle.

Giving an update on Kim’s life post-rehab, Kyle shared that Kim is doing “really well.” “She’s really strong right now, happy, she’s looking forward to moving on in her life.” Good for Kim! You can see the complete interview with Kyle in the video below!

Kyle also recently talked to Life & Style about her new house, which she calls her “dream home.” Kyle moved into the home at the beginning of this season and it was the site of the infamous White Party blockade starring Taylor Armstrong.

Located in exclusive Bel Air, the newly renovated seven-bedroom, eight-bath mansion has a screening room with personalized chairs, five fireplaces and a chandelier in every room. I guess Kyle’s hit the big leagues! “I love the sparkle in each room,” Kyle exclaims. Some photos of the new digs are below.

There’s no rest for the wicked, right Kyle? The reality star who is constantly in defense mode also appeared on Good Day LA. Kyle was asked about having the “narcissistic gall” to partake in a reality show and not expect criticism from the Internet. Kyle relented that she does “expect” to hear negative comments about her life, but it’s still “hurtful”

“I think that sometimes people see me as someone that I’m not and that’s what hurts,” Kyle clarified. Additionally, Kyle reveals that she “absolutely” regrets putting her personal life on TV for public consumption! While Kyle makes it perfectly clear she knew her privacy would be invaded when she signed up to do the show, she wasn’t prepared for constant scrutiny from fans and the media.

“Just with a reality show there’s a lot of negativity sometimes… people dissecting my relationship with my sister Kim and thinking they know exactly what’s going on between us after only two seasons, when in reality its decades in the making.” I totally agree with Kyle’s statement. Family relationships — particularly ones with addiction involved — are incredibly complex and probably not a good thing to be airing on national television.

Kyle is planning to take a break from putting her real life on screen, instead letting her faux life take center stage because she is turning her story into a sitcom!

Kyle’s new sitcom is based upon her recently published book, Life Is Not A Reality Show. Of the new sitcom, Kyle tells the Associated Press, “I just sold a pilot, a half-hour sitcom. I can’t say which network, but it’s about my life. It’s basically my life being a juggling mom, wife and being on a reality show.”

And Kyle isn’t planning to star in the show (surprisingly), but wants somebody that’s “really funny and could capture the humor of being a mom and all the humor that comes with being on a reality show,” to play her. “Maybe Jennifer Aniston or Jenny McCarthy,” she suggests. I can only imagine who will play the role of kooky Kim!

Moving on to another RHOBH star with a life that’s crazier than fiction, Camille Grammer is giving her opinion on this season’s storyline and discussing her never-ending divorce from Kelsey Grammer!

Camille appeared on the Today Show where she talked about Bravo’s decision to air Russell Armstrong‘s storyline following his tragic suicide. “[Bravo] did a responsible job, ultimately, in the end,” Camille asserted. “In the beginning, I wasn’t sure we should air season two, but that’s not my decision to make.”

“I have no say whatsoever,” Camille revealed of her input in Bravo’s reasoning behind continuing with the season. “I was against it, but then after talking with the cast and producers, if we can bring awareness to anyone who’s gone through that and help people it was important to us.”

“At the end of the day we’re all there for each other,” she said of her relationship to her castmates. While Camille was fairly tight-lipped about revealing how things are with Taylor, she says Taylor seems “happier” lately and has “put on some weight.”

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.

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills a 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?
