Dimitri Charalambopoulos

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer took some time to relax poolside this week in Palm Springs, CA!

Camille, 43, who is currently in the midst of a bitter custody battle with ex-husband Kelsey Grammer, spent some time lounging by the pool with her two kids Mason, 9, and Jude, 7, as well as her new younger beau 35-year-old attorney Dimitri Charalambopoulos.

And speaking of Kelsey, he recently revealed his plans to have another baby with his new child bride Kayte Walsh. If you recall, Kayte was pregnant for Kelsey last year but ultimately suffered a miscarriage. When asked if he had plans to expand his family, Kelsey told Hollyscoop: “We have plans and we’re working on it so we’ll see when it happen.”

In other RHOBH news, some of the show’s stars are now slamming newbie Dana Wilkey or rather her tacky $25,000 sunglasses and the bragging that went along with it!

On the last episode of the show, Dana attended a barbecue party put together by Adrienne Maloof during which she made certain to let the other ladies know just how much her sunglasses cost! The reason for the high price? The sunglasses came with real diamonds. Below, Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, and Brandi Glanville bash Dana in their latest Bravo blogs

Lisa — “Seeing the barbecue at Adrienne’s I was sure glad I missed it. Dana, with her million dollar sunglasses, I personally find off putting. Who says that? Sorry but it’s disgusting. I think one of the prerequisites in this arena is honesty. I have no desire to invest in that nonsense, regardless of Kyle once again saying how nice they are. I see it for what it is.”

Kyle — “I still don’t know Dana very well, but she has always been nice to me. However, I do think spending $25,000 on a pair of sunglasses is ridiculous. You do see some outrageous things and people in Beverly Hills. I’m not always quite sure what to make of it. I am always a little skeptical when I see people talking about how much money they have.”

Brandi — “Dana was so busy bragging about her over-the-top sunglasses that she barely acknowledged I was there. I don’t think she earned any points with that.”

Yikes! As for Dana, she attempted to defend herself and her diamond studded sunglasses as she posted the following –

“Now we come to the glasses — there is a store on Canon Drive in Beverly Hills called Luxuriator, and it is the infamous store that I got my $25,000 glasses at. Take my word for it, the store is breathtaking! Actually Franco, the owner who is an amazing personality in his own right, has glasses that go up to $100,000 — so my pair is small fry. Certainly these sunglasses are not for someone who loses their glasses a lot or hasn’t bought their fill of cars and jewelry. They aren’t going to feel super different then than a regular pair of high-end glasses. But if you are a person who loves to wear jewels daily and can afford it, I can tell you they are beautiful and loads of fun to wear, because, as we have seen from the show, they are a great conversation piece. The way I look at it these glasses are piece of art. Jewelry with function not just shades. To each their own!”

Allrighty then! More photos of Camille below!

Days after granting Entertainment Tonight her first interview since the suicide of her estranged husband, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong sat down with Dr. Phil for another interview.

It appeared no topics were off limits as Dr. Phil hit Taylor, 40, with the hard questions. Taylor was asked to explain her name change, her lavish spending despite financial turmoil, and whether or not she believes the housewives contributed to Russell Armstrong’s death. Below are the highlights –

Taylor On Name Change – Early on in the interview, Dr. Phil asked Taylor about her name changes, most notably changing her last name to ‘Ford’ before she married Russell. Reports had stated she would tell people she was related to the Ford auto family. Taylor however claimed she changed her name in honor of the fashion designer Tom Ford. “I’m a big fan of Tom Ford and he’s a designer. Tom Ford, Taylor Ford, it’s similar so I just decided to legally change it,” said Taylor.

From Oklahoma To Beverly Hills – Taylor was also asked how she went from a small town girl from Oklahoma to having her life in disarray in Beverly Hills. “I believe that the majority of it stems from a lack of self-esteem, having abandonment issues and clinging to a relationship because I never addressed my own self-esteem issues. And I was willing to put my own well being aside.” She added that her lack of self-esteem came from growing up in an abusive household without a father, adding that she had a lot of “shame.”

Taylor’s Reasons For Doing RHOBH – “I would say that my primary motivation for doing the show was because I was in a dangerous situation in my home life and I felt like there was protection offered to me by having cameras in my life because how’s anything going to happen if there’s a camera there to document everything.”

Why Did Russell Do The Show? – Dr. Phil wondered why Russell, whom Taylor says physically abused her regularly, would agree to do a reality show. Taylor stated Russell simply felt he was untouchable: “There was a part of him that thought that he was impenetrable and that the world would fall in love with him.” When asked if she would do the show all over again knowing what she knows now, Taylor responded: “I don’t think the end result of what happened in the Tornado would have been any different with or without the camera present.”

Did RHOBH Contribute To Russell’s Death? – Taylor made it clear that the reality show should not be blamed for Russell’s suicide stating: “If we peel back the onion a little bit. The fact is that all the things again that he was concerned about coming out were a reality. The bankruptcy, the police reports about physical abuse in the past, me having reconstructive surgery on my eye — all of that was factual. That was reality.”

She added,”The fact that there was a camera sitting over here doesn’t change the fact that he made choices that were unacceptable. To feel as though that you’re going to be scrutinized for harming other people — that’s to be expected. “

Taylor Blames Finances For Russell’s Death – Taylor reveals that after spending many sleepless nights thinking about what was the final straw, she believes it was the “financial avalanche” Russell was facing. “I discover every day the gravity of what that looked like,” she said. “The one thing he wanted in his life more than anything was to be financially successful… And when he felt that he was failing at that, I think he saw the financial avalanche that was ahead of him and he felt he would never be able to crawl out from under it.”

Taylor Explains Lavish Spending – Like many others, Dr. Phil also wondered why the couple continued to spend lavishly amid financial difficulty. Most notably the now infamous $60,000 birthday birthday Taylor threw for her 5-year-old daughter Kennedy in season 1. Taylor pretty much stated that she did not pay $60,000 as the party vendors gave her free items and services in exchange for the free publicity. “Because that’s the value doesn’t mean that I wrote that check,” she added. Taylor also revealed she never had access to any of the couple’s finances.

Taylor stated that she couldn’t have been a gold digger because when she married Russell, he had just filed bankruptcy. “When I married my husband, he was penniless,” she said. She also added that Russell was “very charismatic” though he didn’t come across that way on the show.

In other news, Camille Grammer continues to get sweet revenge on her ex-husband Kelsey Grammer! Camille, 43, was pictured last night in West Hollywood as she stepped out with her new younger hotter beau! According to reports, Camille has been dating 35-year-old bankruptcy attorney Dimitri George Charalambopoulos for a few months.

“They’ve been dating for three months and she’s very into him,” a friend of Camille’s tells Life & Style. “They spend a lot of time at her house in Malibu, but he hasn’t moved in. She says the chemistry is incredible.” Photos of Camille’s boyfriend below!
