The two were snapped as they dined at the popular Mr. Chows restaurant in Beverly Hills. The photo of Kim and Kathy is below. If you recall, Kim checked into rehab back in early December for what sources described as “alcohol addiction along with other substance abuse problems.” After spending about 40 days at the Betty Ford Clinic, Kim ultimately checked out early this week.
Meanwhile, Kyle Richards is making the rounds following the latest episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which featured another blow-out with her troubled sister Kim Richards. It seems these two will be going back and forth forever, long after the spotlight of Bravo cameras stops charting their every dispute.
Speaking to Extra, Kyle discussed her decision to go on RHOBH and answers what regrets she has about airing all of her sisterly grievances in the public spectrum. “It’s nothing like what I thought,” Kyle explains, “but we are having fun.”
As for those regrets, Kyle “of course” has some. “You know, last season the fight with my sister Kim, I regret that. But I don’t regret it as much as I regretted this season’s game night. I regretted that a lot more because that just wasn’t me. I wasn’t true to myself.”
“Season one, that was when I was dealing with my sister. A lot of people didn’t understand that and that is what I was feeling,” Kyle elaborates. As for why she is always in the middle of all the drama, “A lot of the Housewives will come to me when they have an issue,” Kyle claims, “so I’ve kind of been their sounding board a lot of the times.”
“Plus I’m not someone who can keep things to myself. If I’m thinking something or feeling something I have to get it off my chest. Which doesn’t always go over well,” she adds. We’ve noticed Kyle.
Giving an update on Kim’s life post-rehab, Kyle shared that Kim is doing “really well.” “She’s really strong right now, happy, she’s looking forward to moving on in her life.” Good for Kim! You can see the complete interview with Kyle in the video below!
Kyle also recently talked to Life & Style about her new house, which she calls her “dream home.” Kyle moved into the home at the beginning of this season and it was the site of the infamous White Party blockade starring Taylor Armstrong.
Located in exclusive Bel Air, the newly renovated seven-bedroom, eight-bath mansion has a screening room with personalized chairs, five fireplaces and a chandelier in every room. I guess Kyle’s hit the big leagues! “I love the sparkle in each room,” Kyle exclaims. Some photos of the new digs are below.
There’s no rest for the wicked, right Kyle? The reality star who is constantly in defense mode also appeared on Good Day LA. Kyle was asked about having the “narcissistic gall” to partake in a reality show and not expect criticism from the Internet. Kyle relented that she does “expect” to hear negative comments about her life, but it’s still “hurtful”
“I think that sometimes people see me as someone that I’m not and that’s what hurts,” Kyle clarified. Additionally, Kyle reveals that she “absolutely” regrets putting her personal life on TV for public consumption! While Kyle makes it perfectly clear she knew her privacy would be invaded when she signed up to do the show, she wasn’t prepared for constant scrutiny from fans and the media.
“Just with a reality show there’s a lot of negativity sometimes… people dissecting my relationship with my sister Kim and thinking they know exactly what’s going on between us after only two seasons, when in reality its decades in the making.” I totally agree with Kyle’s statement. Family relationships — particularly ones with addiction involved — are incredibly complex and probably not a good thing to be airing on national television.
Kyle is planning to take a break from putting her real life on screen, instead letting her faux life take center stage because she is turning her story into a sitcom!
Kyle’s new sitcom is based upon her recently published book, Life Is Not A Reality Show. Of the new sitcom, Kyle tells the Associated Press, “I just sold a pilot, a half-hour sitcom. I can’t say which network, but it’s about my life. It’s basically my life being a juggling mom, wife and being on a reality show.”
And Kyle isn’t planning to star in the show (surprisingly), but wants somebody that’s “really funny and could capture the humor of being a mom and all the humor that comes with being on a reality show,” to play her. “Maybe Jennifer Aniston or Jenny McCarthy,” she suggests. I can only imagine who will play the role of kooky Kim!
Moving on to another RHOBH star with a life that’s crazier than fiction, Camille Grammeris giving her opinion on this season’s storyline and discussing her never-ending divorce from Kelsey Grammer!
Camille appeared on the Today Show where she talked about Bravo’s decision to air Russell Armstrong‘s storyline following his tragic suicide. “[Bravo] did a responsible job, ultimately, in the end,” Camille asserted. “In the beginning, I wasn’t sure we should air season two, but that’s not my decision to make.”
“I have no say whatsoever,” Camille revealed of her input in Bravo’s reasoning behind continuing with the season. “I was against it, but then after talking with the cast and producers, if we can bring awareness to anyone who’s gone through that and help people it was important to us.”
“At the end of the day we’re all there for each other,” she said of her relationship to her castmates. While Camille was fairly tight-lipped about revealing how things are with Taylor, she says Taylor seems “happier” lately and has “put on some weight.”

THOUGHTS ON KYLE’S COMMENTS ABOUT THE SHOW AND HER SISTER? WOULD YOU WATCH KYLE’S NEW SITCOM? ARE YOU SURPRISED CAMILLE ADMITTED SHE DIDN’T WANT BRAVO TO AIR FOOTAGE OF RUSSELL?
Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Kim Richards and Adrienne Maloofput on their signature satin dresses at ‘The World According To Paris’ series premiere party held at the Tropicana Bar at The Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, California. But seriously, have these ladies ever met a satin dress they didn’t like?
More pictures below of the BH Housewives alongside Paris and Kathy Hilton! Paris’s new show debuts June 1 on Oxygen for the three people planning to watch.
In other BH news, the NY Post is reporting that we will be getting a much different Camille Grammeron the upcoming season of the RHOBH than we did last year.
Sources reveal that Camille is much more “subdued” this season to the point that Bravo producers are finding her character — which provided a whole lot of the crazy entertainment in Season 1 — “really boring.” A source adds, “Producers have told Camille she has to start being more interesting and causing more drama.”
The Post speculates that Camille might have been ordered to keep her mouth shut on certain issues in her divorce settlement with ex-husband Kelsey Grammer. The same settlement that netted her a reported $50 million!
“Nobody knows what’s in that divorce settlement,” says a source close to the show. “But I would not be surprised if she could not discuss certain things. She’s checking what comes out of her mouth, and the producers are pushing for the cast to be as naughty and as full-on as possible.”
Another source speculates that Camille’s new act is because she doesn’t want to lose any access to her children. Her friends state that she’s simply refusing to act in a way on the show that could give Kelsey ammunition for a custody battle. A rep for Bravo denied to comment on the story.
As we reported last week, Kelsey has filed papers attempting to get full custody of his two kids with Camille who has vowed to fight to keep her kids.

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.

Kim was pictured smiling with both of her sisters – Kathy Hilton and Kyle Richards, as you can see above. The dinner outing at the Frida Mexican restaurant was to celebrate the 21st birthday of Kim’s daughter Whitney Davis.
Following the volatile finale episode of the Bravo show, during which Kyle accused Kim of being an alcoholic, Kim had pretty much stayed out of the spotlight, only making a brief appearance on E! News to wish her niece Paris a happy birthday.
There had been conflicting reports on the status of Kim and Kyle’s relationship with the latest report coming out last week stating Kim wanted nothing to do with Kyle. But with these latest photos, it seems the sisters can at least bear to be in the same room with one another.
Also present at the dinner were Paris Hilton, Nicky Hilton, Mauricio Umansky, plus Kim & Kyle’s daughters. More photos are below.
In other BH news, Lisa Vanderpump revealed to UsWeekly that her pocket-sized dog Giggy is ready to go Hollywood. According to Lisa, the Gigster has signed with a talent agency.
“It’s true,” said Lisa. “He’s with CAA.” The Creative Artists’ Agency represents A-listers such asJenniferAniston, SandraBullock, BradPitt, and JuliaRoberts as clients.
So what kind of gigs is Giggy hoping to get? “He can do charity; he is open to anything. The only thing he isn’t very good at is radio,” said Lisa.

RadarOnline was able to get exclusive access and photos to the birthday party, and those photos are below. “Portia is obsessed with being a princess,” gushed Kyle to RadarOnline. “And I don’t know where she got it because I was a tomboy,” she added with a laugh.
“She’s like her mom. She likes sparkles and sequins!” boasted Kyle. Radar reports it was a family affair with Mauricio, and Portia’s older sisters Farrah, 22, Alexia, 14, and Sophia, 11.
Also in attendance were Kathy Hilton, Nicky Hilton, actress Ali Landry and even fellow housewife Taylor Armstrong, who brought along her 5-year-old daughter Kennedy.
“I adore Portia. She’s the cutest little girl,” Taylor told Radar. “My daughter Kennedy loves mothering Portia because she’s a couple years older so she thinks it’s really fun to be around the smaller children and get to be the big sister for the day.” We’re guessing Taylor has yet to read this interview by Kyle.
Following the party, Taylor even took to her twitter page, sending the following tweet to Kyle on Monday night. “Kennedy and I had a blast with Portia and @KyleRichards18 today. Xo girls.” Kyle has yet to reply to the tweet, perhaps she just missed it in her timeline.
Kathy also spoke to Radar, stating –“I’m the auntie so all my nieces are like my kids. Our family is like that.”
Kyle added, “My whole family and friends are here so we’re having a lot of fun.” Seemingly missing from the party? Kim Richards as there was no mention of her in the article nor was she in any of the photos. Kim has however made one public appearance since the whole finale episode debacle. She appeared on E! News two weeks ago in an interview with sister Kathy, during which they both wished Paris Hilton a happy 30th birthday. She looked to be in good spirits.
That E! news footage doesn’t appear to be online as of yet. Also, the paps caught up with Kathy on Feb. 14 during which she commented on the Kim and Kyle situation. Kathy said they were raised as three girls, they are family and that loyalty is most important. She also said they will get beyond all of the conflict, adding that TV is TV, but she does not want a TV show to come between her family. Interesting use of the word loyalty there.
And now back to Taylor and Nene as the two apparently went out for drinks on Monday night during Nene’s current visit to LA.
Taylor tweeted that she had “lots of laughs” with Nene, who then tweeted a photo of the two ladies together with the caption – “Drinks last nite n LA wit Beverly Hills wife @Tayloratweets now it’s time 4 my business swag then hookup wit @KyleRichards18.” Like three two peas in a pod. That photo is below.

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.

However E! Online has now been able to officially confirm the entire cast. The biggest surprise would have to be Camille Grammer, wife of popular actor Kelsey Grammer. And as we previously reported, Paris Hilton’s aunts — Kyle Richards and Kim Richards — are also a part of the cast.
The above photo was taken when the cast attended a Lakers vs. Kings game last week.
So will these Beverly Hills be able to give us the drama we are used to? Well the jury still seems to be out on that as a source tells E! News, “Everyone seems very happy to be on the show. They are all really very nice. Lisa is hilarious. She has that dry, British humor.” It seems the Beverly Hills ladies are about to take the Housewives franchise into Hollywood.
PHOTOS AND BRIEF BIOS OF EACH OF THE LADIES IS BELOW -
Camille Grammer – 41-year-old former Playboy model and married to Frasier star Kelsey Grammer for 13 years. The Hollywood couple have a 9-year-old daughter, Mason, and a 6-year-old son, Jude.
Adrienne Maloof-Nassif – is no stranger to plastic surgery judging from the above photo. The 48-year-old is a member of the popular Maloof family which owns everything from the Palms to the Sacramento Kings.
