I have to say the first installment of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion was pretty low-key. There were some revelations, some serious bitchery, and there was Lisa Vanderpump holding court as the resident queen as Andy Cohen all but got down on his knees to laud her. There was a for-real fight over Lisa's affection, which I found truly amusing.
Things begin with Andy taking Adrienne Maloof to task in a verbal smackdown about how Adrienne's final act as a Housewife was one of defiance. Andy basically pointed his finger in her face and said: "Big mistake. Huge!" But Adrienne don't care. Once she got her walking papers she decided to give ol' Andy the final snub.
Andy makes all the ladies break down surrogate-gate and if they think Adrienne should have shown up to face her demons. The consensus is why go on reality TV if you have secrets. Yes, why indeed Rambles Richards? Why go on reality TV with secrets and then blame your castmates for outing them; claiming they have ruined your life? Good question!
Viewers of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have never felt indifferent towards the resident duck-lipped, wine swilling misfit of Rodeo Drive. No, I'm not talking about Kim Richards. Taylor Armstrong always garners strong feelings from fans of the show. The woman once packed herself in a suitcase for goodness' sake! However, this season, Taylor, while still every bit the train wreck of seasons past, has certainly come into her own.
Taylor is no longer kissing the arses of her wealthy co-stars, and she's even taken to making fun of herself on Watch What Happens Live. Now, she's waxing poetic about her new beau who, as you all remember, was her married attorney John Bluher. Things are looking up for Ms. Hughes!
Taylor describes her new relationship as a happiness she never thought she'd find. Even daughter Kennedy is reaping the benefits of her mother's new love life, as Taylor is finally remembering where her child is on a regular basis. How sweet is that? It's the stuff fairy tales are made of, y'all! Congrats Sheena Taylor!
Brandi told the radio host that on her first season as a 'Friend of the Housewives' she earned a paltry $18k. That's barely enough to cover spray tans and manicures!
Lucky for her, Brandi says since all the other ladies hated her and wanted her off the show, Bravo hired her full-time! "They just didn't want me there!" Brandi admitted. "They were like, 'Oh, she doesn't fit in. She's out.' " Now as a full-time cast member Brandi says she earns on the low-end of the totem pole raking in $136,000.
"Over the past few weeks, there has been a lot of speculation and rumor as to the status of my relationship with Taylor Armstrong," he begins. "I can confirm that Taylor Armstrong and I are in a romantic relationship, and we are both very happy."

Gotta love Brandi Glanville's cut to the chase approach. Since Taylor Armstrong can't stop talking about her "archnemesis" and her alleged slutty behavior, Brandi decided to discuss how she feels about Taylor's behavior.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star sat down with Us Weekly where she shared her perspective on this season and discussed why she does not condone Taylor's relationship with her very-married boyfriend, John Bluher. In the very candid interview, Brandi is upfront and direct but not exactly catty.
First up, Brandi talks about how things got so mixed up in her comment to Yolanda Foster about sleeping with everyone in Beverly Hills. Apparently Yolanda, who's Dutch, doesn't always get American humor, particularly sarcasm.
Brandi reveals that she and Yolanda end up "very close BFFs" throughout the show and she classifies Yolanda as "Team Sanity."
Weeks before filming is slated to begin on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills–with rumors that Bravo still hasn’t extended contracts with the cast and is actively scouting for new housewives–Taylor Armstrong (who is, according to reports, already skating on thin ice) is finding herself the recipient of much negative press and scrutiny.
The Housewife who has a penchant for changing her stories as often as she changes her underwear (we hope!), is receiving some serious backlash after the legitimacy of her abuse claims made in her non-fiction bestseller, Hiding From Reality. Her claims are being questioned, well, because some 0f them sound downright unbelievable and there’s no proof anywhere!
According to Reality Weekly (via their print edition), Taylor’s outrageous claims and subsequent media speculation are having some unfortunate and surprising side effects! As a result, domestic violence charities are not interested in having Taylor affiliated with their organizations.
Even worse, Taylor’s rep has tried to book her at domestic violence events and Taylor has been turned down by charity leaders because she is too controversial, and is not considered a good spokeswomen for their organizations. Yikes!
Taylor is still affiliated with the 1736 Family Crisis Center, and recently hosted a fundraiser for the organization. She claimed she was planning to donate proceeds from her book to their cause.
Moving along, Taylor is also facing backlash after rumors of an alleged affair with her very married attorney, John Bluher, surfaced. John is representing Taylor in the massive lawsuit filed against her by MyMedicalRecords.
Both Taylor and John (and John’s wife) denied any romantic affiliation, but several sources claim it was indeed going on. Adding to suspicions that the two were sharing more than attorney-client privileges, John was spotted in New York with Taylor while she was promoting her book. John claimed he was coincidentally there on separate business. Uh-uh…
Apparently, now that she is receiving some serious public scrutiny from, well, everywhere, and her Bravo contract is on the line, Taylor has dumped John and called off the affair. “Once the story made headlines Taylor broke it off with John and told him they couldn’t see each other anymore,” a source close to Taylor disclosed to RadarOnline. “She just has so much going on and didn’t want any bad press, especially involving her and a married man.”
John is reportedly disappointed that Taylor broke things off because he’s also a famewhore he had strong feelings for her, but Taylor’s friends are relieved she will no longer be “the other woman,” as she has enough drama happening!
I have to say, Ms. Armstrong certainly has a talent for causing problems! Here’s hoping we won’t have to see her doing it on-screen in the upcoming season of RHOBH!
DO YOU BELIEVE TAYLOR’S DUBIOUS ABUSE ACCOUNTS ARE CAUSING HER TO LOSE CREDIBILITY WITH DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ORGANIZATIONS? WAS SHE HAVING AN AFFAIR WITH JOHN?
