On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the ladies hit the slopes in Colorado. Lisa and Taylor continue their passive aggressive feud to dominate Kyle’s friendship by trying to out-mean girl each other. And Kyle and Kim try to make some headway in their badly tarnished relationship.
Kyle is moving to a new 7,000 square foot house and she feels this is meant to be her house – in fact she stalked it because she feels connected to its energy. Too bad the house couldn’t get a restraining order! Kyle shows Portia a beautifully framed portrait of Kyle and Mauricio on their wedding day and despite a recent blind item hinting that they may not be so in love, I hope that’s not the case! Kyle’s bestie and decorator, Faye Resnick (looking as be-nipped and tucked as ever) shows up to help the Umansky’s move and make some decisions about where Mauricio’s pool table can go – only in the garage since furniture is more important than man cavedom. Faye discovers amongst Kyle’s possessions an enormous self-portrait. Here’s hoping she’s not arrogant enough to hang that up on the walls! Yikes!

It was reported days ago that Brandi was in talks with Bravo, but TMZ has since confirmed Brandi has signed the dotted line to join the cast. Also confirming the news are other multiple media outlets including E! News.
According to E!, Brandi beat out other hopefuls to get the gig including Ayda Field. “Bravo actually had an offer out to Robbie Williams‘ wife, actress Ayda Field, but it didn’t work out because of contractual issues,” a source reveals. “That left an open spot for Brandi, and they are excited she is joining the cast. Everyone is getting along fine…for now.”
Brandi has already began filming scenes which brings us to another question: Is Faye Resnick also a new housewife on the show? E! reports that answer is no. However, thanks to her clashing with Camille Grammerlast year, Faye will “be featured more on season two of the hit show.”
And back to Brandi, who will without a doubt be a controversial character on the show. Brandi first came into the tabloid limelight back in March, 2009 when UsWeekly broke the news that her then husband, actor Eddie Cibrian, was cheating on her with country singer LeAnn Rimes, who was then married to her former backup dancer Dean Sheremet.
At first Eddie, 37, publicly denied the affair and Brandi decided to give him another chance. However Eddie and Brandi ultimately split up in July, 2009 after Brandi discovered Eddie and LeAnn, 28, were still carrying on with their sordid affair. A month later, the disgusting twosome, Eddie and LeAnn, went public with their relationship, leading up to a nasty feud between Brandi and LeAnn. Brandi did not hesitate to publicly bash both Eddie and LeAnn over their actions and for breaking up her family.
Brandi and Eddie have two sons together, Mason, 7, and Jake, 4. Fast forward to today, Eddie and LeAnn recently tied the knot on April 22, 2011, and Brandi was reportedly unhappy that her sons were not told of the nuptials in advance.
Brandi, 38, is a former model and make-up artist. She most recently made headlines for a DUI arrest last October and pled no contest to the charges on April 1. She was sentenced to 36 months probation, 3 months of alcohol education courses, and a $390 fine.
And as we reported back in February, Brandi is good friends with Cedric Martinez, the same Cedric who had a falling out with Lisa Vanderpump. Now that Brandi is a part of the cast, we can expect some guaranteed fireworks between the two ladies. In fact, Lisa made an interesting tweet yesterday. “Mmmm ….today was challenging….mmmm housewife moment..” tweeted Lisa.
TMZ is also reporting today that Eddie is making it crystal clear he doesn’t want his kids on the Real Housewives (sour grapes much?) and is even threatening legal action if their two sons appear on the show.
Brandi is reportedly pissed as she believes Eddie is imposing a huge double standard. The reason? He and the kids just appeared in a massive spread in People magazine with his co-adulterer LeAnn. Who knew Eddie had morals and standards? In the meantime, the 2nd season of the RHOBH continues to film! More photos of Brandi below –

Months after their nasty limo fight during theReal Housewives of Beverly Hillsfinale, sisters Kim & Kyle Richards continue to pick up the pieces of their relationship. And in a new interview with PEOPLE, Kim is speaking out for the first time about Kyle since the airing of that episode.
“[It’s] a day-by-day thing that we work on [because] what happened was extremely painful,” Kim, 46, told PEOPLE at Bravo’s upfront party in Los Angeles. “It’s not going to cure itself over night and hopefully we will grow past all that happened and move forward and get stronger and stronger.”
As for Kyle, she says she is now “very proud” of the dramatic fight. “I’m very proud. I can only say for myself, but I learned a lot about our relationship,” Kyle, 42, said. “I’ve learned a lot about myself and I feel like our relationship was strengthened maybe because of what happened.”
One of those lessons learned by Kyle includes taking a new approach when it comes to dealing with Kim. Kyle states she now wants to be more of a sibling than a parent. “When you lose your parents like we have, I turned to my sisters to parent me at times and I feel like at times I need to parent them,” Kyle said. “But it’s not my job and I have to love her, step back and say I’m not your mom.”
Meanwhile Kyle spoke to E! News in a different interview on Sunday night, during which she revealed she might not be returning to the RHOBH after all, despite the fact that the second season began filming weeks ago.
“The show has been picked up for a second season, but I’m not sure if I’m coming back yet,” Kyle told E! News. “We’re not really sure who’s coming back yet, so we’ll see,” she said. We’re going to call a negotiating ploy to get more money from Bravo on this as Teresa Giudicedid something similar last year as the 3rd season of the NJ Housewives began filming. Or perhaps Kyle is just playing coy as the cast of the show is not supposed to confirm who is returning to the press.
Whatever the case is, Kyle has been photographed filming for season 2 in recent weeks, so if she does decide to leave the show, it will likely be in the form of an early exit a la Dina Manzo on the NJ Housewives. And while Kyle’s BFF Faye Resnick has also been photographed filming for the second season, E! reports that Bravo has yet to make a final decision on who the new BH housewife will be. A recent report stated that the network intended on adding a new housewife to the current cast of six.
According to E!, the final spot has come down to two finalists – Faye and Ayda Field (wife of U.K. pop star Robbie Williams). “If I were to put money on it, I would say Ayda will be the new castmember,” a source tells E!.
So why has Faye been filming with the cast? “Faye is shooting for the show already because she is an actual friend of the cast,” explains the insider. “It is still unclear if Faye will remain a friend or become a central character on the show.”
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON KIM & KYLE’S COMMENTS? PLUS WHO WOULD YOU RATHER HAVE JOIN THE CAST – FAYE OR AYDA?
According to the Wetpaint site, the sisters stepped out a week ago to do some lunching in celebration of their sister Kathy Hilton’sbirthday.
Also present was Faye Resnick, as all signs continue to point to Faye being a new housewife on the show. This is the second time Kim has been photographed in public in the past 2 weeks. And just last week, a fan asked Kyle on twitter about the state of her relationship with Kim, in which she replied, “We’re good.” More photos of Kim and Kyle below.
A “source” close to the situation tells the site the two are taking steps to repair the breakdown in their marriage with the help of renowned psychiatrist, Dr. Charles Sophy.
According to Radar, Russell and Taylor will have sessions with Dr. Sophy together and separately. It gets even better as several of Taylor’s sessions with Dr. Sophy will be filmed for the upcoming season Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. However, it seems Russell is having second thoughts about appearing on camera for the new season a la Jim Bellino.
“Russell hasn’t decided yet if he wants to participate on camera. Dr. Sophy has provided the couple with a great deal of guidance, and they genuinely do seem to be working through their issues,” says the source. “Russell comes across on camera as being very aloof, and reclusive, that just isn’t who he is. Russell wants to work to improve the marriage, it just isn’t Taylor, which is a very, very good sign for the future of their marriage.”
Another source close to the couple tells Radar that there is “a little stress in the marriage” and that they want to make their marriage work. It’s a wonder these two need therapy as they seem perfectly suited for one another.

So much for that report claiming Nene Leakesand her latest nemesis Star Jones were trying to call a truce.
The verbal smackdown between the two Celebrity Apprentice stars continued this week as Nene visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show. When asked about her feelings on Star, the Nene called her a “disaster.”
“She is bossy, she is manipulative, conniving,” said Nene about herself Star. “And I’m not even being funny. I think that is real. I honestly think that is who she is.”
Ellen then asked if the NBC show accurately portrays the characters on the show. Nene replied, “I believe that you are. Big bossy Star. Laid back Nene. You are seeing all of that.”
Nene also stated she tried her best to get along with Star in the beginning. “I think she had preconceived notions of who she thought I was just from watching me on the ‘Housewives,'” said Nene. “I think she thought I was going to come in and take over. I tried to get to know her. Some people are difficult to get to know. She’s not the easiest person to get to know. She is a disaster.”
When asked if she was the only one who didn’t get along with Star, Nene told Ellen, “I don’t think anybody is getting along with Star. I don’t think she’s easy to get along with.” Seems like the Nene finally met her match.
As for Star’s response, she sent out the following tweets on Wednesday –
“I heard the “I hate Star Jones” fund got some more publicity today. LOL. Please send all checks to #AHA for #HeartHealth! #FocusOnAGoal”
“I REPEAT: If you LOVE me I’m always in your heart ; if you HATE me I’m always on your mind. Bless the miscellaneous…”
Meanwhile, we reported last week that Nene has been hanging out with Al Reynolds, Star’s ex-husband, and now a friend of Star’s tells Popeater how she really feels about that.
“Star thinks it’s pathetic that these two has-beens have teamed up together,” the friend tells Popeater. “Nene knows how much pain and hurt that man caused Star. For Nene to suddenly befriend him tells you exactly what sort of woman she really is.”
“My stomach hurts from laughing so much :o. U are beautiful and hilarious. Xoxo,” tweeted Kyle to Nene. “We laughed so much,” replied Nene.
Photos of the three housewives hanging tight below. We also have to wonder if there is trouble brewing for Kyle and Lisa Vanderpump’sfriendship as the two have barely tweeted to each other in recent months. And while Kyle has been photographed filming numerous scenes with BFFs Faye Resnickand Taylor in the past 2 weeks for the show’s second season, she has yet to be seen filming with Lisa. Perhaps they’re just not as close as they used to be.

According to the HollywoodLife, Faye has voiced her interest of wanting to become an official housewife to the show producers. “Faye has met with producers and there is a lot of interest from the show’s fans to have her on,” says a source close to the show. “I don’t have word yet on whether she has officially signed on, but I do know that she was being seriously considered.”
Faye’s addition to the cast would be especially interesting considering Camille will be returning to the show and the two butted heads during the now infamous dinner from hell. Faye is mostly known for close friends with Nicole Brown, and testifying against O.J. Simpson during his trial. Camille has accused Faye of capitalizing off Nicole’s murder trial by posing for Playboy and writing a book.
To add more fuel to the speculation, the above photo of Faye with BFF Kyle Richards and Taylor Armstrong, was taken Tuesday night for dinner at the BOA steakhouse in West Hollywood. There are some reports Bravo cameras were on hand to film the dinner for the second season of the hit show. Nice to see Kyle being very “friendly” to Taylor these days after claiming Bravo made their friendship out to “seem bigger” than it really was on the show.
As for the news of Faye possibly becoming a housewife, Bravo would only state, “We haven’t announced anything regarding season two yet.”
In other BH news, it seems Kyle is working towards getting her acting career back in gear. She tweeted Sunday night, “Last night shooting movie. So tired but happy to be here.”
More photos below of the ladies, as well as a pic of Mauricio and Kyle.
TELL US – WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE FAYE JOIN THE RHOBH CAST?
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.

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 -
