Viewers saw sisters Kim and Kyle Richards experience what they both called their biggest conflict ever on the season finale of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and now the big question is what is the current status of their relationship?
Numerous media outlets including the Bravo updates on the finale reveal the relationship between the sisters continues to be strained. And now a new report by E! Online attempts to shed some light on the situation.
“They’re speaking again,” a source tells E! of the current status. And what about Kim’s alleged drinking problem? As Kyle outed her as an alcoholic on the finale episode.
According to an insider, if Kim has a drinking problem, it is one she hides very well. “I’ve never seen or heard anything about it,” the longtime friend tells E!, going on to add that all the ladies on the show love their cocktails. “When you watch the show, all of the wives drink in almost every scene.” Good point.
According to Camille’s lawyer, Neal Hersh, the main issue here is Kelsey’s pension, which is estimated at $5 to $10 million. Hersh is worried that if Kelsey marries fiance Kayte Walsh and dies before his divorce settlement with Camille, Kayte could go to the pension administrator as the widow and lay claim to the proceeds. While it is highly unlikely Camille would lose her pension rights, her lawyer wants Kelsey to cough up a $10 million bond to protect her — just in case. Kelsey has refused to put down the $10 mil citing he is unable to. A new hearing for the case has been set for Feb. 7. A judge could decide to grant Kelsey the divorce on that date.
And finally, Camille appeared on ABC’s The View this morning. While she didn’t really reveal much despite being grilled by the show hosts, she did admit she and Kelsey had a few sexless years towards the end of their marriage.
And when asked why Kelsey was in such a rush to introduce their two children to fiance Kayte and get remarried? Camille replied, “He did rush it. He did rush it. Yeah, he’s a bit impetuous, don’t you think?” She later added, “You know, he wants what he wants right away. He’s almost like a child.”
Safe to assume that word of the day calendar is still being put to good use. The interview was a bit awkward to watch as the hosts really tried to grill Camille, who oddly enough did not seem like she wanted to go into too many details about her marriage and Kelsey, unlike her previous interview with Howard Stern.

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.

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 delusionalTaylor 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?
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.

According to a new TMZ report, Kelsey Grammer is now planning to tie the knot for the third time in February with fiance Kayte Walsh, and no longer in January as originally planned.
TMZ adds that the wedding, which is being planned for the last 2 weeks of February, will only take place if the judge in his divorce case with estranged wife, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills starCamille Grammer, ends their marriage this Wednesday during a scheduled hearing.
Kelsey’s lawyer filed new legal documents stating he has agreed to every condition Camille requested in order to get a divorce immediately, with the exception of one. That one condition is that Kelsey immediately provide Camille with $10 million bond until they negotiate the final settlement. Kelsey is claiming he cannot meet that condition at the moment.
Camille is still objecting to Kelsey being granted a divorce before their assets are divided. Meanwhile, Popeater is also reporting that Kelsey’s daughter from a previous marriage, Spencer Grammer, is engaged. Spencer, a 27-year-old actress who stars on ABC Family’s Greek is engaged to boyfriend James Hesketh.
According to an insider, “Camille and Spencer had no relationship. … And Spencer and her father are closer than ever since he split with Camille.” Photos of Spencer below.
And just days after Kyle Richardsissued a non-apology apology, Taylor Armstrongis also speaking out on the drama filled finale episode of the Beverly Hills housewives. According to the very delusional Taylor, she meant well with the confrontation conversation she initiated with Kim at her party, and also goes on to call Kim “unpredictable.” Excerpts from Taylor’s blog below -
“I often wonder if we would have had a nice first meeting in Sacramento, if things would have been different for us. At my birthday party, my intention was to sit down next to her (when I asked her friend for a moment with her) and have a talk about how I felt and what went wrong. When Kim stood up as opposed to my sitting down, I knew things were going to go badly. I could tell Kim wasn’t in the “mood” for aheart to heart. Lisa felt it was important for me to sort it out with Kim, but in retrospect, I should have said no and left it alone. Sometimes Kim says things she doesn’t mean (as do I) and with her, I really don’t understand where some of the content comes from. She is unpredictable but, that’s as much as I care to say about that. On occasion, you meet a person with whom you don’t seem to “click” and that, in my opinion, is what happened with Kim and I. We both had our guard up from the beginning and the results weren’t favorable. I wish Kim all the best and hope we can put our pointless bickering behind us.”
Perhaps it’s just me but isn’t “unpredictable” a fancier way of calling someone crazy? A very unnecessary dig. In her blog, Taylor goes on to state she regrets being a two faced sh*t stirrer “whatever part my comment played in” the finale episode.
After reading Taylor’s blog, I had to go back and watch the scene again and below is the exact words of exchange between Taylor and Kim at her party.
Taylor: You look… Could you excuse me for a minute? I just, Can I have a word with you for just a second?
Taylor: Lisa started asking me about why, how I all of a sudden got involved in this whole altercation between Camille and Kyle and I really feel like it only had to do with you kinda like trying to wind me up in LAX. And you know, I just want to kind of get that off my chest because I had nothing to do with it. And like you had all the opportunity in the world to stop what was happening between Camille and Kyle and instead it went on and on and on and I really feel like I shouldn’t have been dragged into it.
Kim: Really? I feel like none of you could let it die…
And that’s exactly how the supposed “heart to heart” conversation began except feel free to read Taylor’s words in a condescending tone. Quite frankly, I’m not a fan of all the bull and all the cruel insinuations regarding Kim. In a matter of days, Kim is now an insane unpredictable alcoholic and none of these ladies want to take responsibility for their actions. It’s that whole I’m sorry but…, I regret what I said but… None of Kim’s actions on the show have been unpredictable. Kyle was the one who tried to attack her in the limo, and Taylor was the one who flew off her rocker, not once, but twice whenever Kim tried to bring up her role in winding Camille up in NYC. And isn’t it funny that when Lisa brought up the same exact thing Kim had been trying to say, Taylor reacted very differently. I feel that all these comments and insinuations are truly disgusting, transparent, and a way for Taylor to deflect from her actions.
And I also have to ask, if Kim is an unpredictable alcoholic, why approach her? why confront her? This is regarding both Taylor and Kyle’s actions. Must say, not too many sane people will confront or try to attack an unpredictable alcoholic in public, especially one who is minding their business. As I said in the recap, something is not adding up.

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.

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 Malooftweeted 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 -

In the 1 minute, 38 second video clip, Camille claims: “The whole season was set up to make me look bad.” She then gets into it with Kyle, stating, “You bully me all the time and I’m fed up.” Kyle fires back: “Quit using the buzzword of the moment.”
Kyle also brings up Camille’s porn past, defending her friend Faye Resnick by stating doing porn is way more corrupt that doing a tasteful spread in Playboy. Other issues brought up? Kim might have a drinking problem, Kim is asked is the feels bullied by Kyle, and Lisa’s husband Ken can be seen stating he absolutely hates someone, whom we believe is Cedric.
The first part of the reunion showdown airs Jan. 27 with part 2 scheduled to air Feb. 1 at 10 p.m. ET on Bravo.
In other BH news, Camille Grammer continues her press tour, perhaps still hoping to redeem her image, with her latest appearance on Lopez Tonight Tuesday night.
During the interview, Camille tried to backtrack on the comments she made about estranged husband and father of her two children, Kelsey Grammer, when she strongly insinuated he was a cross-dresser. She told George Lopez her comments on the Howard Stern was simply a big joke.
However, TMZ is flat out calling Camille a liar. According to TMZ, it couldn’t be a joke because Camille has also shared the same exact information with some members of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast. People from the show tell TMZ that Camille was very bitter over the divorce, and would tell anyone who would listen that Kelsey loved to wear women’s clothing. Not surprising as Camille has been shown being very vindictive on the Bravo hit show.
The preview clip of the reunion is below -
