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.

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 boyfriendKen 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.”
In other RHOBH news, the Rumor Fix blog is reporting that on December 21, 2011, four months after Russell Armstrong’stragic 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-husbandKelsey Grammeris 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!

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 Grammeris 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.”

THOUGHTS ON KYLE’S COMMENTS ABOUT THE SHOW AND HER SISTER? WOULD YOU WATCH KYLE’S NEW SITCOM? ARE YOU SURPRISED CAMILLE ADMITTED SHE DIDN’T WANT BRAVO TO AIR FOOTAGE OF RUSSELL?
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 Hillsa 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?
Camille is speaking out on her Bravo blog about her confusion related to the incident, why she felt the need to contact her lawyers and admitting she still doesn’t know what to believe when it comes to Taylor and Russell! Camille begins by describing that she was looking forward to attending the party and despite the recent friction with Taylor, she “didn’t have any concerns about seeing everyone, even though obviously things were going on.”
Unfortunately things took a turn for the nasty when she opened her Inbox! “Russell had emailed me about 2:30 am the night of Pandora‘s bachelorette party. I first showed Adrienne [Maloof]the email. She immediately came to my defense and questioned Russell’s right to send me an email of that nature.”
“At the party I was in the backyard with Brandi [Glanville] and my girlfriend Dedra talking to the guests. Until I saw this episode, I didn’t know exactly what the conversation was. It was difficult to watch it go down.”
“Watching the episode and what the girls were saying, it was apparent at that point all of us were so confused,” Camille continues. “I was upset because friends don’t sue friends. Taylor had told all of us her story, so some of the other Housewives were concerned that they would also receive emails like I did.”
“I didn’t want to alienate Taylor and her husband — but at that time, it wasn’t in my control,” Camille explains. “I had called Taylor several times before the email to apologize. However, after I received the email, my only course of action was just to get in touch with my lawyers and follow their advice, which was essentially to stay clear of Taylor and Russell.”
“It was such an unfortunate situation all around. You can tell it was a confusing time for all of us, We’re a group of friends that all want to support each other. Then, all of a sudden, you see divisions in the group, which are disappointing. Like any close knit group, we all want to help each other in the most difficult of real life situations, yet we might not all agree how.”
“I don’t think anybody felt good afterwards. For me, I was still as confused and disappointed as when I had gotten that email. I still wasn’t sure about Taylor’s true situation with all that was happening,” Camille concluded.
Speaking of Taylor, last Friday she attended a court hearing related to the lawsuit against her from MMRGlobal. MMRGlobal is seeking damages against Taylor for her involvement in alleged investor fraud, orchestrated while Russell was a shareholder and board member for the company. Russell was subsequently removed from the board of directors for misappropriating investor monies.
In an attempt to recover some of these assets, MMRGlobal decided to go ahead with their suit against Taylor, despite Russell’s death, because they believe some of those missing investor monies are being held in an off-shore Cook Island Trust started by the Armstrongs in 2002. Reality Tea will be bringing you more details on the case as they unveil. This was a preliminary hearing against Taylor and no decision has been made as to the course of action.
Finally some good (well, better) news related to the RHOBH ladies — apparently Kim Richards is thriving in rehab! Kim’s ex-husband from her first marriage, supermarket heir Monty Brinson spoke to Life & Style and said Kim is “the happiest she’s been in a long time.” A photo of Monty and Kim at their 80’s wedding is below!
Despite their divorce over twenty-years ago, Monty and Kim remained “best friends” and he has been in touch with her during her stay in a rehab facility. Monty is the father of Kim’s eldest daughter, Brooke. “Kim wasn’t happy with her life,” Monty says. “She wanted to seek help so she could get better for herself, her children and her family.”
Monty says Kim’s decision to seek help was triggered by Russell’s suicide, which was a “wake-up call for Kim,” adding that “all the castmates realized just how precious life is.”
Monty believes that Kim is very serious about recovery and is positive that rehab will truly work for Kim this time, as she is taking full responsibility for her actions related to addiction. “She’s ready to start a new life when she gets out.”
No word if Kim’s boyfriend (or ex-boyfriend) Ken Blumenfeld is still in the picture and supporting her through this time. Recent reports have stated Kim moved out of the house they shared prior to entering rehab and they are no longer together.
Best of luck to Kim. We are all hopeful she gets the help she needs and is able to get her life back on track and in a positive direction!
THOUGHTS ON CAMILLE’S BLOG? WAS CAMILLE RIGHT TO GET HER LAWYERS INVOLVED? WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR’S LAWSUIT: DO YOU BELIEVE SHE AND RUSSELL WERE LIABLE? THOUGHTS ON MONTY’S INTERVIEW?
Last night on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the power of an email haunts Kyle’s infamous White Party. Aaaahhh… The white party. The party of parties of parties. Known throughout the BH as the fete of the year. It’s dashing, it’s whimsical — it’s a slew of wealthy ladies in sequined bed sheets berating each other! Just another Beverly Hills evening, nothing to see here folks!
Things start out with Adrienne breezing into Paul’s office to regale him with the story of litigious emails. Apparently after Camille outed Taylor’s claims to the world, Taylor raced back home and told Russell that Camille has been spilling lies and Russell dashed off his version of a pleasant email to Camille and threatened to sue her for “false and slanderous remarks that could damage his business.”
Adrienne sums it up thusly: “Friends don’t sue friends. Or threaten to sue friends.” Perhaps this is how you figure out who your real friends are in the ol’ BH. If you don’t get slapped with a lawsuit or a sis and desis you’re besties!
