Cedric shares via his rep, "Tonight’s episode shined the spotlight on Lisa and Ken’s habitual lying and viciousness. It would be easy for me to say “I told you so,” but that’s not my style. But I do want to clear up the nasty deportation rumor. Brandi is brutally honest and I love it. Most of the time she says exactly what everyone else is thinking. But sometimes she tells little white lies to amp up the drama. That's where things get complicated.
Cedric's side of the story: "It all started with the entirely scripted lie that "Me and Cedric are friends from modeling." The producers concocted the fib to get her on the show. Brandi, Lisa and I sold it, and the rest is history… Brandi's a star and I was kicked to the curb. At the time I was furious. I'd just been betrayed and fired because of Lisa's vicious lies. I was naïve; expecting Brandi to do the right thing and support me, as I had supported her. Instead, she dropped me like a hot potato. In hindsight, I'm O.K. with it because I know Lisa forced Brandi to cut me off."
Poor Lisa Vanderpump just can't do anything right. But she's also the most powerful and smartest woman in all the world – according to her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast mates. With those credentials you wonder why they'd bother effing with her, but I guess it's the price you pay for reality TV fame!
In Lisa'sbravo blog she discusses necklace drama and her relationships with former friends turned co-workers from hell.
"I am of course extremely upset when I see, for example, Brandi bringing up the subject of Cedric [Martinez]. All of you who have followed the story from the beginning will understand Cedric was a precarious subject and one that out of loyalty to Brandi I would never have raised. But now she is saying I had Cedric deported."
Kim is able to forgive Brandi Glanville for calling her a meth addict on national TV and telling people she pooped on her pillow, but not forgive Lisa for decorum and the truth came out on twitter! Kim is now Brandi's friend and Brandi and Lisa are now NOT friends. In fact, according to the wisdom of Kingsley Kim, everything bad that has ever happened on RHOBH like in the history of the show is ALL LISA'S FAULT.
A viewer recently tweeted Kim warning her about trusting Brandi, stating: "Look what she did to Lisa." and Kim responded with, “What did Brandi do to her? I KNOW!! Brandi says stupid things things!! But … I PROMISE U!! EVERYTHING LISA DOES IS FOR A REASON!! …..NEVER JUST BECAUSE SHE LOVES ❤U" Basically it's the same old-same old "playing chess" nonsense that Kyle Richards has been spewing for ever.
You may not agree, but I think Brandi Glanville is the spice so needed for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She's brash, she's offensive, she's everything her counterparts want to be but pretend that they're not. You add in the fact that Brandi's ex-husband Eddie Cibrian couldn't keep it in his pants, and she proceeds to run into his former mistresses throughout 90210, and you've got a great reality recipe for drama.
I know y'all recall the SUR party last season (you know, the one Cedric Martinez tried to crash, not to be confused with this season's Villa Blanca party when Adrienne Maloof sent that passive aggressive jungle arrangement to Lisa Vanderpump) when Brandi ran smack dab into SUR waitress Scheana Marie who had once gotten to know Eddie really well…if you catch my drift.
Fast forward to Scheana starring in Bravo's new Vanderfabulous spin-off Vanderpump Rules, and she's all over the media yet again for that unfortunate run in with Brandi. Of course, Brandi handled the situation with as much class as Brandi can…she did a better job than I would have expected. From previews, we know that the women will come face-to-face yet again (thanks producers!) to finally say their peace, and now media outlets are revisiting that original awkward meeting as Bravo hypes its newest reality show.
If you watched last season’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, you know that Lisa Vanderpump owns quite the restaurant scene. On the episode where the dastardly Cedric Martinez showed up to confront his former friends/personal ATMs at the opening of SUR, Brandi Glanville had an awkward near run-in with a young lady Eddie Cibrian “dated” before cheating on his wife with Leann Rimes. Villa Blaca and SUR waitress (slash actress slash model slash pop star) Scheana Marie was mortified to see Brandi at the event because she had gone out with a wedding ring-less Eddie who claimed to be single. Because that scene on the show was a mere minute in a half long, by my calculations, Scheana Marie thinks she’s got at least thirteen minutes left.
Anyone who thought Real Housewives of Beverly Hillswould go quietly, was wrong! The reality show is filled to the brim with drama on and off the screen and the fallout from the Part One of the epic reunion has been massive; with the stars fighting acrylic nail and extension to clear their good-ish names!
In response to the hotly contested footage of this season’s story, Taylor Armstrong has found herself maligned by fans and accused of exactly what Cedric infers below. While I do not believe Taylor goaded Russell into taking his own life, I do believe there is doubt to many of her claims and I do think she has handled his death irresponsibly and with little regard to his children – including the daughter they shared.
It is apparent that many fans feel similarly and some have taken it to a whole new level. Following the reunion Taylor was the recipient of several death threats through Twitter from a follower known as Hardboiledpeggs.
“See u on February 7 ill be there with a book and a rope so i can kidnap u,” @Hardboiledpeggs wrote. Taylor responded with,”Don’t ever contact me again.” The user persisted, this time involving Taylor’s daughter, Kennedy! “Turn around bright eyes every now and then, Kennedy’s dead,” the clearly deranged user threatened. A screenshot of the Tweets is below. They are truly disgusting!
The Twitter user @hardboiledpeggs has since been deleted. No one was harmed and so far the threats have been baseless, however Taylor is rightfully taking this very seriously and contacted the authorities.
“Taylor absolutely freaked out when she read the death threats. These were credible serious threats against Taylor and her daughter, Kennedy. The Tweets that were sent to Taylor have been turned over to the FBI,” a law enforcement source reports to RadarOnline. “Taylor is assisting the FBI with the investigation, and she wants the person responsible for the the threats prosecuted.”
“Taylor will be consulting with security professionals and assess what changes she needs to increase,” the source adds. “Her first concern when she got the threats was Kennedy, but her daughter is safe, and that is all that matters to Taylor. She will do whatever is necessary to protect herself and Kennedy.”
Increased security will also be present at Taylor’s February 7th book signing in NJ to ensure the safety of both herself and other fans.
Moving on as discussing the tumultuous first part of the reunion is RHOBH’s most notorious hanger-on, the sometimes nefarious, often unbelievable Cedric Martinez. He really needs to move on already, doesn’t he? Cedric is giving his two-cents about what happened and claiming his version of the truth. My advice – take it with a grain of salt, but some of it rings true!
Releasing a statement to Reality Tea through his publicist, Cedric admits his famewhoring predilections and he isn’t ashamed! “YES, I am a fame whore,” Cedric exclaims “But there is a huge difference between someone like me, pursuing opportunities on reality TV (and exposing the lies and viciousness of reality stars) versus people like Lisa [Vanderpump] and Taylor [Armstrong], who exploit opportunities on reality TV by lying about, and misrepresenting themselves and others.”
And with that, here we go! Speaking about the behind the scenes feud between former friends and neighbors Lisa and Adrienne Maloof, Cedric claims there was some veracity to Adrienne’s accusations. “The truth about Lisa’s lies and smear campaigns is right there in front of your eyes. Lisa lurks in the shadows, like a snake on her belly. But with a little effort, you can help me expose the truth…,” Cedric says, lambasting his former friend.
Cedric accuses Lisa of having a relationship with the ‘bloids and exploiting said relationship to garner favorable press. I hate to burst his bubble but almost all celebrities do this to a degree – even A-Listers! “Lisa is technically right when she says she doesn’t SELL stories to the tabloids. She doesn’t. But the truth is not on Lisa’s side… Lisa TRADES stories (on celebrities and the other housewives) for favorable press for herself and her restaurants; and sometimes for negative press about her enemies. I’ve seen her do it hundreds of times. And I have proof.”
Gleefully defending newbie Brandi Glanville, Cedric supports her campaign to expose the nefarious dealings of some of her co-stars, all in an effort to get herself on the show, of course! “You gotta give the girl credit… the other housewives want Brandi off the show, now. But she’s hanging on for dear life by exposing the truth and rattling the other housewives cages. Oh how I wish the lies the producers told about our ‘long-term friendship’ were true.”
“Brandi is a breath of fresh air and, remember, she was the first person to call out Kim [Richards]‘s obvious drug abuse and alcoholism. And she didn’t buy Taylor’s “innocent victim” act for one minute. I’m rooting for Brandi but I’m predicting Lisa and Kyle will use their unbridled power over the weak producers to kick her off the show just like they did to me!” Considering Lisa and Brandi have struck up some sort of a friendship, we’ll have to wait and see!
Cedric’s most shocking and intriguing accusations concern Bravo’s role in Russell Armstrong‘s suicide. “Last night’s RHOBH Reunion episode was very sad. Not because Lisa was getting crushed under the weight of her own lies. That was hilarious! No, it was sad because Bravo, the producers, Taylor, Lisa and Kyle [Richards] once again used the power of a hit TV show to trash the memory of a dead man,” Cedric asserts.
And while Cedric admits that Russell was clearly no saint, he insinuates that both Bravo and Taylor played a role in Russell’s decision and besmirching his memory! Ceddy’s got some cojones! You can read the remainder of his statement below. In order to get the truth out there, Cedric also evokes fans to convince Andy Cohen to book him as a guest on Watch What Happens Live. Somehow I doubt that will happen…
Finally, it was the slander accusation heard round the world, ok, well round the blogosphere as Adrienne accused Lisa of selling stories to RadarOnline, citing a “source” told her. RadarOnline is speaking out in defense of Lisa and denying there is any truth the rumor. They are also defending Adrienne and Camille Grammer, explaining that they really were told that by a source! Luckily it seems the ladies have patched this “misunderstanding” up!
“Don’t blame Adrienne for accusing Lisa, she was told wrong info by person not from Radar,” RadarOnline.com’s Executive Vice President, David Perel, said via Twitter. Adding, “I don’t blame Adrienne at all! Totally not her fault. She was given wrong info.”
Following the shout out in their support, both Lisa and Adrienne thanked Mr. Perel. “Thank you for your support, I know what @TheRealCamilleG and I were told. Moving fwd in a positive direction! xoA” Adrienne Tweeted.
As for the mysterious source who seems to believe Madame Vanderfabulous accepted a whopping $25k in exchange for information (what on earth would be worth that much dough, I wonder?), Radar assures fans they are investigating! “Dealing with it behind the scenes,” Mr. Perel wrote.

With season two of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills coming to an end tonight, the ladies are dishing left and right about the past season as well as airing their feelings on some of the drama.
Kyle Richards has had quite the dramatic year, from her sisterKim Richards‘ public battle with addiction to her friend Taylor Armstrong claims of domestic abuse, and now the Housewife is speaking out about the dramatic moments from the past season.
“Season two has been very emotional to live through, and to watch it is difficult at times,” Kyle reveals to Celebuzz. “Honestly we did have a lot fun — like Hawaii, we all laughed! Although my sister and I had our moments we did have a lot of fun.”
Kyle explains that certain scenes involving her sister are difficult for her to watch, particularly the discussion they had at last week’s SUR party. “Oh my gosh, it’s so hard for me to watch that. That and the scene where I bumped into my sister at the store. In the reality world it’s rare to have that real moment where you bump in unexpectedly, and we did. [Kim] was there looking for a dress for the opening credits of the show and I happened to bump into her there.”
Kyle goes on to add that Kim hasn’t seen the last few episodes. “The last few episodes my sister isn’t watching. I want her to move forward, not look back. She’s not watching,” Kyle described. Although Kim did watch the episode from Kathy Hilton‘s consignment shop. “She did see that episode, and we both cried. It’s sad.”
Despite all the ups and downs, Kyle is more than willing to sign on for another season. “If it gets picked up, or when, assuming it does, I love these women. We have our moments but I care about all of them.”
And both confirming and disputing certain rumors out there about which ladies are returning for season 3, Kyle claims “As far as I know [the main] women are back. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it!” Well, see the problem is that the show is broken and needs to be fixed, so hopefully the fans will get their wish and some changes will be made!
Moving right along, Lisa Vanderpump had an expected, unexpected guest for the launch of SUR when Cedric Martinez arrived supposedly uninvited. After the episode aired Cedric spoke out claiming Bravo had arranged the party “crash” and Lisa was well-aware he would be making an appearance. Cedric provided emails proving producers were involved in the plotting and released them to the media.
Whether Lisa knew or not (or didn’t have an option to contest, given her contract), she is speaking out calling Cedric’s media blitz “disgusting.” Lisa is appalled by Cedric’s repeated pleas for attention via tabloids and interviews; wondering how a person who lived in her home and was like a son to her “keeps going and going — there’s something new every week … ”
“I don’t understand it. It sickens me that he sinks to that level,” Lisa tells RumorFix. Lisa also adamantly denies Cedric’s assertions of her husband Ken Todd‘s affairs and a secret love child. “I’ve been married for 30 years and we’re really, really happy. I love my husband and I’m just sick of these continual attacks.”
And of Cedric’s rumored tell-all book, which is said to contain salacious details about the Vanderpump-Todd family, Lisa claims she has no interest interest in insulting Cedric back. “I never hit back — I never said anything negative. It is what it is and I’ve moved on.”
Following last week’s episode, which featured an ill-advised therapy session, Adrienne Maloof, the level-headed, crazy-haired Housewife is discussing Taylor and the Sisters Richards bizarre dynamic, via her Bravo blog.
“Having brothers, it’s very interesting for me to see the dynamic between Kyle and Kim. With my brothers and I there is more light-hearted teasing, and we’re competitive when it comes to business or sports. The one thing that is absolutely the same though is the love,” Adrienne describes.
“I’ve known Kyle and Kim for quite some time, and I’ve seen them in their moments of joy as well as those moments we saw in Hawaii. I understood Kyle’s frustration with Kim missing so many events — when you love someone you want to share the great moments. There is a sense of regret in not sharing those moments and I know Kyle didn’t want her sister to miss out on the fun.”
Describing the opening of SUR as “very stressful” because of the many “heart-to-hearts,” Adrienne wonders if that was really the appropriate time or place. “I don’t think you ever get dressed up and go to an event expecting it to turn into a therapy session in a back room!,” she exclaims.
Also, revealing her reason for insisting Taylor apologize to Camille Grammer, Adrienne stands by her decision to call Taylor out. “I thought Taylor needed to be accountable for the position she put her friends in. You want to support your girlfriends, but it’s difficult when you’re being threatened with litigation as a result,” Adrienne explained.
“However she did admit that and I admire her being candid and forthright about her role. It was an emotional rollercoaster for all involved. Ultimately she has my support as she gets back on her feet, and I wish her much happiness in her life moving forward.”
Finally, as I am sure you are all aware tonight is the season finale! Though according to whispers, last week’s episode was originally supposed to be the finale. Bravo, however, decided to add one more episode following Russell‘s passing.
Tonight’s finale means we only have the reunion to dread look forward to before putting the most depressing, unenjoyable season in Housewives history behind us. On tonight’s episode Pandora ties the knot and the ladies visit with Taylor collectively for the first timeRussell Armstrong‘s suicide.
You can watch a preview for tonight’s episode below!
The season finale of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs tonight on Bravo at 9/10c.
DO YOU BELIEVE KYLE IS REMORSEFUL FOR THE WAY THIS SEASON PLAYED OUT CONCERNING KIM? DOES LISA HAVE A RIGHT TO BE DISGUSTED BY CEDRIC, OR IS SHE JUST UPSET HE INFORMED THE MEDIA ABOUT BRAVO’S INTENT FOR LAST WEEK’S EPISODE? WAS ADRIENNE RIGHT TO DEMAND AN APOLOGY FROM TAYLOR?

Lisa VanderFabulous is leaving her drama addled co-stars in the dust. The sparkly, opulent, witty one is apparently getting her own Bravo spin-off and I can’t say I’m surprised.
We heard rumblings of the notion this week after spurned houseboy Cedric Martinez released emails exposing the truth behind his surprise arrival at the SUR launch; claiming Lisa was desperate for fame and in “negotiations” for her own spin-off to center around the staff at SUR.
Now The Huffington Post is seconding the motion and reporting that Lisa is definitely moving onward and upwards in her VanderPumps to be the star of her own show. Oh, yay! And that’s a genuine yay – I loooooove me some Lisa!
“Bravo has taped a pilot with Lisa for her own show and is now deciding if they want to greenlight a full series based around her life and family,” a Bravo insider reveals. “They do not rush into these sorts of things, but if all goes according to plan, Lisa will soon have her own reality show.”
“This would be her dream come true,” a friend of Lisa’s explained. That same friend, who suspiciously sounds more like a friend of Cedric’s, adds, “Initially the producers were not sure they even wanted her to be part of the Beverly Hills cast, but were won over when they met her flamboyant houseguest, Cedric, who moved back in with her once the show started filming, before everything turned bad.”
Frankly, I find it hard to believe producers would pass up Lisa. Cedric seemed like an added bonus to give the show a little more flair. I do wonder if news of a spin-off means Lisa will not be returning to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills next season, and really who would blame her given what a horrible monster that show has become!
The launch of SUR, opened more than a restaurant, it also opened viewer’s eyes to what was going on with Kim Richards. Viewers witnessed Kim’s erratic and emotional behavior; including locking herself in the bathroom, screaming, and accusing her boyfriend, Ken Blumenfeld of controlling behavior bordering on verbal abuse.
Viewers also noticed a concerned Jennifer Gimenez, licensed addiction counselor at the L.A.’s KLEAN Treatment Center and star of Sober House and Celebrity Rehab, standing outside the bathroom door attempting to speak to Kim. Jennifer attended the party as a guest of Brandi Glanville. She describes to WetPaint what really went on that evening and answers what she did to encourage Kim to seek treatment.
Jennifer is speaking out after a virulent reaction from fans on Twitter. Many wondered why Jennifer seemingly would ignore the visibly in need of help, Kim. According to Jennifer, “I did step in, it just didn’t make the final edit.”
In fact the night after the episode aired, Jennifer Tweeted just how disconcerting Kim’s behavior was, “my heart broke watching her …i was scared for her.”
“I saw Kim when she first walked in,” Jennifer describes. “I had been around her before and I’ve seen the way she acts when she’s not herself. I already knew she was sick and suffering. So after she arrived at the Sur party, I kept my eye on her.”
“What I saw broke my heart,” Jennifer adds. “It was so clear that she needed help. Jennifer also explains that Kim actually took several trips to the bathroom and not the one extended trip that was portrayed on the episode.
“She spent a lot of time in the bathroom. She was in there half the night. Finally, I went over there. I waited until Ken had left. He had been hovering around the bathroom door waiting for her and I didn’t think that was helping the situation,” Jennifer recounts.
“So when he walked away, I went over and knocked on the bathroom door. Kim opened it and was like, ‘What do you want?’ and I just said to her, ‘Look, I know you know that I’m sober and I just wanted to say if you need help, I can help you. I can help you tonight, I can help you tomorrow, I can help you anytime you want.’”
“She started to open up to me, but she was so scattered, she wasn’t making a lot of sense. So I gave her my number and she gave me hers and I told her to call me. I told her I would be there for her. I think she believed me. I told her it had nothing to do with the cameras or the show, I just wanted to help her. I think she understood that.”
“But I was thrilled when I heard Kim had checked into rehab,” Jennifer shares. “I’m so grateful she finally sought treatment. If she ever needs a sober friend, I’m here for her 100%.” I’m glad Jennifer was able to support Kim throughout the night while everyone was was embroiled in Taylor Armstrong‘s drama.
