Coachella. It is where rich kids go and pretend they are hippies… err, um, rich kids… and a few reality stars who want to party like it’s 1969. It’s all very odd to me. I think Bethenny Frankel summed it up perfectly:
“So someone invited me to #douchella & I got overwhelmed,” she tweeted. “Isn’t it for 22 yr old models with suede purses & flower crowns?”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ Kyle Richards took to Instagram recently to do a little boasting about her husband Mauricio Umansky’s major real estate kill, the sale of a nearly 15,000 sq. ft. Beverly Hills manse that sold for a cool $43.5 million (pictured). The property’s picture was posted on the social media site along with the words…”So proud. Love this team #recordbreaking….” Even though Kyle was ecstatic that her husband of 20 years and CEO of The Agency managed to get another notch in his selling belt, some of her fans didn’t join in on her celebratory posting.
Many of Kyle’s followers thought she was being a braggart with regards to the mild-mannered post and did not appreciate, what they perceived to be the flaunting of her wealth in their faces. Mauricio, who is also featured on RHOBH, is the No. 3 realtor in the country and No. 1 in California according to Real Trends, Inc., a leading source of analysis on the real estate industry. The Agency’s sales volume totals an estimated $604,339,372 according to Real Trends, so the power pair are not hurting for dollars.
Things may be strained off and on with Kyle Richards and family, but that didn’t get in the way of her birthday today. Kim Richards just shared a heartfelt message for her little sister on Instagram.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star shared the throwback photo of herself sitting with her baby sister Kyle. She wrote, “I’ve loved you from the day they brought you home Happy Birthday little sister!! I hope this year is best year EVER for YOU!! I love you @kylerichards18.”
So what roles did Kyle, Mauricio, Kris, and Rick play in Faye‘s wedding?
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Kyle was a bridesmaid, and Portia was the flower girl. Mauricio and Rick walked Faye down the aisle. Last but not least, because nothing says true love forever like being married by a fame obsessedpimp momager, Kris officiated the ceremony. <blank stare> See a few pictures from Faye and Everett‘s wedding below.
UsWeekly is reporting that Brandi, jilted ex-wife of actor Eddie Cibrian who left her in 2009 for country singer LeAnnRimes, is still in talks with the Bravo network to join the hit franchise.
If you recall, reports came out months ago that Brandi was being considered to join the cast after she was photographed out and about with Lisa Vanderpump’s former pet house guest Cedric Martinez. That news however quickly died down after the second season of the RHOBH began filming weeks ago.
According to a source, the storyline of Brandi, a 38-year-old former model, would of course be about her issues with her ex Eddie, 37, and his new lady love/wife LeAnn, 28. “Wouldn’t you be upset with them?” asks a source close to the mom of sons Mason, 7, and Jake, 4.
Brandi is reportedly even more upset by the sudden nuptials of Eddie and LeAnn a little over a week ago, with the source adding that Brandi and her sons were not told in advance about the wedding. A source close to LeAnn however counters stating, “the boys were told about the wedding three days in advance.”
The Hollywoodlife confirms the UsWeekly story, stating that Brandi is signing on while adding that Playboy playmate Jessica Hall (the same gal caught kissingKendra Wilkinson) is also in talks to join the cast as well.
“Brandi has already started filming for ‘Real Housewives’,” a source close to the show reveals. “She hasn’t officially signed anything yet but she’s interacted with members of the cast on camera.” As for Jessica, she is said to be “negotiating her contract” with Bravo.
It’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with all the reported names in talks to join the cast. In addition to Brandi and Jessica, Faye Resnick, Jillian Barberie, Ayda Field,and Jeanie Buss have also been mentioned in the rumor mill. E! news reported a few weeks ago that the final spot for the new housewife came down to Faye and Ayda.
Plus filming on the second season began over a month and a half ago, so we can’t help but wonder if Bravo is planning to add more than one housewife to the show. Perhaps one of the six original BH ladies is leaving mid season. The addition of two new housewives would bring the cast to a total of 8 which seems to be a pretty large number for an already drama filled franchise.
In other news, Kyle Richards was photographed on Monday walking the streets of Beverly Hills with daughters Farrah Aldjufrie and Portia. And it seems Kyle and Farah were a bit busy with having their photos snapped by the paps as poor little Portia walked right into a pole. Thankfully, Portia was okay afterwards. Those pics are below.

UPDATE: TMZ has just confirmed that Brandi has indeed joined the cast of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. According to TMZ, it is a done deal and she has already began filming scenes for the show. In fact, Brandi herself confirmed the news today during an event. Something tells us LeAnn is not going to be happy about this news!
TELL US – ARE YOU HAPPY ABOUT BRANDI JOINING THE CAST?
The 12th episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills aired last night with a bit of an emotional feel. On one hand, we had a young woman beginning a new chapter in her life by graduating, while on the other hand, we had Camille, who had to begin the process of closing the chapter on her 13-year marriage.
The episode begins with Lisa and Kyle meeting up for dinner at Lisa’s restaurant. Lisa reveals hubby Ken is getting lasik eye surgery, Kyle shares her eldest daughter Farrah is graduating and all seems to be going well, that is until Taylor sends a text to announce her impending arrival. Lisa, who reveals she has known Kyle way more longer than Taylor ever will, isn’t happy she has to share her Kyle with Taylor.
And finally! Though seemingly out of the blue, Lisa brings up the NYC issue and Taylor’s role in Camille’s anger during the dinner. About time somebody brought up Taylor’s role in this incident! While it appeared Kim had been the only one to put two and two together all season, it seems so did Lisa though she just decided to keep it quiet. Lisa also suspects Taylor was the one responsible for getting Camille all riled up in her hotel room by telling her what the others said about her. Something we now all know to be true. Lisa wants to confront Taylor but Kyle convinces her not to. Taylor arrives and Lisa appears to be a tad jealous and does a bad job at hiding it. Then out of no where, Lisa tells Taylor it’s time to get real about her marital issues. “Cut the crap, be honest. Stop laughing and joking,” demands Lisa. Taylor continues to laugh while I patiently awaited a snap out of it slap from Lisa. Unfortunately, that doesn’t happen and the ladies make a toast instead.
