If Camille Grammer wasn't absent from the opening credits of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I'd never believe she's been demoted to "friend" of the housewives. She's more present now than she's been in past seasons. I'm not complaining…I think Camille is hilarious.
Her divorce from Kelsey Grammer has long been finalized, but their issues with each other are still as rampant as ever. The more I hear about Kelsey and his irresponsible and arrogant ways, the happier I am I never watched Frazier. To borrow a term from Andy Cohen, he seems to be quite the jackhole. Now Kelsey has taken their parenting war to an entirely different level by not allowing his children to mention Camille when they are with him. Explain to me how that isn't hard on those poor kids!?!
Geez Louise! It seems like lately all it takes for Kelsey Grammer to prove he's a giant bag of ouche-day is for him to just open open his mouth. He is definitely getting back at ex-wife and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille for that cross-dressing comment, isn't he?
After visiting with Oprah Winfrey where he debunked any rumors that he was anything but all man in the bedroom, Kelsey then spoke with Conan O'Brien about how he wasn't getting any from Camille in said bedroom…or anywhere else in their gaggle of pricey homes for that matter. When will celebrities learn that this isn't really the stuff we commoners want to hear?
In the latest sad news concerning the cast members of Bravo’s most depressing series, serial fibber Taylor Armstrong‘s friends are yet again expressing concern about her drinking.
The professional drama stirrer has also, apparently been stirring a lot of cocktails as of late – so many that friends and acquaintances are urging Taylor to consider rehab after numerous drunken episodes – several of which have been included in this season’s never-ending storyline.
“Taylor’s closest friend and advisers have told her that she needs to go to rehab,” a source tells RadarOnline. “Taylor admits that alcohol has become her crutch in dealing with Russell [Armstrong]‘s suicide, and coping with the drama of being on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”
“While Taylor doesn’t drink every day, or during the day, and she certainly doesn’t drink and drive, whenever she does drink, she gets drunk,” the source clarifies. “Taylor primarily drinks in the evenings, at home alone, and when out socializing with friends She isn’t drunk in front of her daughter Kennedy,” the insider insists.
And Taylor admits she has a problem (only one?) but she isn’t ready to address it just yet! “Taylor recognizes that alcohol is playing a much larger role in her life than she would like, but she is refusing to go to rehab, primarily because of Kennedy. Kennedy has already endured the loss of her father, and Taylor just doesn’t want to spend any time away from her, period.”
“The network bosses haven’t gotten involved with Taylor’s drinking problem, yet though,” the source alleges. “They will if they need to, but Taylor has assured them she is handling it.”
Moving on, Camille Grammer recently learned that her ex-husband Kelsey Grammer is becoming a father again with new wife and former mistress Kayte Walsh, who is pregnant with twins. Kelsey announced the exciting news after his win at the Golden Globes, apparently shocking Camille, who had no idea!
“Camille and the children had no idea,” a source close to the family contends. “They found out about it from the media. Once again, selfish Kelsey decided to do what’s best for him with no concern for his current children. He needs to stop talking about his private life in public. It’s very hurtful for the children he already has.”
Camille recently shared on Twitter that the twins came about via “in vitro” and claims she has known Kelsey was expecting for “a couple of months,” but wasn’t aware that it was twins. Now she is speaking to The Huffington Post about her feelings on the matter. “It’s so unfortunate that he still talks about private matters,” Camille mused. “It’s hurtful to me and its disrespectful to our children.”
“He’s not thinking of the kids when he’s doing stuff like that. My daughter is 10 years old, so she’s able to watch. She’s aware of what’s going on. She hears it from her friends at school, but my son is too young. He’s still only seven. Still, I think it’s disrespectful.” I quite agree Camille!
In some very interesting news concerning RHOBH, apparently after an incredibly tumultuous season that left fans frustrated and in need of Prozac, Bravo may be re-evaluating who returns for season three over mounting concerns that the storyline is alienating viewers! Is it possible that they are again responding to the fans’ opinions? Is it possible that Taylor has replaced Jill Zarin as the most hated Housewife ever?!
Confirming that casting is still up in the air, Camille recently confessed she has no idea who will be returning next year- and they are on the hunt for new ladies!
“I guess they decided who they want and I guess they are going to start casting, looking for new housewives,” Camille spilled. “They told me they were going to start looking so it wasn’t behind my back. They were like, ‘Sorry we are doing a big casting call.’ I was like, ‘Thanks.'”
“I had a good year so I would want to go back for a third season, but they haven’t asked me yet, so I wonder what’s going on with that,” she continued. Camille doesn’t hesitate to admit the news worries her, but she understands that network’s position following a season that was troubling to viewers and doesn’t fit the image the show seeks to represent.
“When you watch the scenes between Taylor and Russell, it is uncomfortable,” Camille asserts. “I think some of the viewers feel that way. I’m glad that some of our viewers are coming back around and joining the season and our viewership is up. We took a little dip because of what happened, and I think we are on a upswing, so that is really positive.”
The Hollywood Reporter followed up on the story and was told by a Bravo rep that the network does not comment on cast negotiations and no official announcement for the third season has been made!
I predict fan favorites Lisa and Adrienne will stay (provided they want to), along with Kyle – who, love her or hate her, really adds crazy drama to the line-up. Camille has emerged as a likable character this season and many fans enjoy her straightforward and humorous approach. Still, being told things haven’t been decided yet may not look good for Season One’s most controversial Housewife, but I believe she will return next season.
My guess is also that Bravo will sign on Brandi as a full-fledged housewife. I think it goes without saying that Dana will not be returning!
As for Taylor, after seeing the majority of the editing for this season I believe Bravo is well aware of her schemes and those of Russell. I think Monday night’s episode was filmed to “save face” so to speak after the network worried it would have legal ramifications stemming from Taylor’s claims of alleged abuse; and given the fan backlash, along with the very negative direction this season took, Bravo will hopefully replace her. Numerous fans have posted that they will discontinue watching if Taylor remains on the show and online petitions have emerged to remove her from the cast. At this point I don’t believe viewers are willing to give Taylor another chance to redeem herself.
I also think Kim will ultimately remain part of the cast, unless she decides to leave. Kim would be a good recurring castmate, but she obviously doesn’t have the interest or tenacity to withstand full-time filming. Viewers are heavily invested in the Richards’ sister storyline, which incidentally helped skyrocket the show to success with the Season One finale. Next season could show a rebuilding of their relationship, which would be a welcome change in their dynamic. And Kim is apparently very hard up for money, so there’s that.
Rumors have also been bandied about that Kathy Hilton is a possible contender for a spot on the show – and we know Bravo likes to get involved in family drama (see: New Jersey, Real Housewives of)! Personally I don’t think Kathy would participate since she’s never even made a guest appearance. My opinion is that Bravo should recognize what fans want to see on the Beverly Hills show and I think they need to return to the fabulous lifestyles of the rich and outrageous!
DO YOU THINK TAYLOR HAS A PROBLEM WITH ALCOHOL? DO YOU THINK KIM WILL CONTINUE WITH TREATMENT? WHO DO YOU WANT TO SEE RETURN NEXT SEASON? WHO NEEDS TO GET THE AXE?
In her latest Bravo blog, Kyle opens up about her reasons for wanting to confront Kim about her habitual tardiness and behavior as well as touches on her feelings on Kim’s boyfriendKen Blumenfeld. Below’s an excerpt from Kyle’s blog:
“The next day Kim finally arrived! At this point I was feeling that she had already missed a lot of the fun. I never saw her all day until dinner that night. When Kim and Ken showed up and acted like it was just any other day. I was beyond frustrated. I expected her to explain what happened (truthfully) and or apologize. It wasn’t like it was a secret. The entire group knew what was going on. Kim likes to brush things under the carpet. I like to put them on the table. The reason I need to do that with my sister is if we don’t address what is bothering us, it builds up and then our relationship becomes very passive aggressive — as you witnessed in Season 1. I wanted my sister to just be honest — not just about Hawaii but about everything. Mauricio has never had an argument with Kim before, but he has witnessed my hurt and frustration and felt compelled to say something.”
Kyle remarks about Ken issues:
“On our way to dinner that night we had barely spoken. She stayed near Ken and laughed with the girls but never mentioned the boat or barely seeing any of us on what was supposed to be Mauricio’s birthday party. At dinner, I could no longer pretend everything was OK. Ken wasn’t helping matters either. I didn’t trust him and felt he was not a positive influence on my sister. He knew I didn’t care for him and made sure I knew he felt the same about me. No love lost there. I was very worried about my sister and didn’t care what he thought about me.”
In her bravo blog, Lisa does’t hold back when she discusses Kim’s behavior in Hawaii:
“…Things were simmering and feelings were running high with regard to Kim’s strange behavior. Her stories didn’t tally up with the exasperating tales she had relayed to us. I was beginning to lose patience. After so many months of feeble excuses, it didn’t matter to me with whom she arrived or what paltry tale or trivial excuse was made. I didn’t want it to ruin our break. And I knew my input would have been irrelevant to her anyway.
Kyle and Mauricio were not content to accept her dismissive behavior and questioned her relentlessly at the dinner table. It was an uncomfortable scenario. I tried to support Kyle and urged her not to cry, as this was the birthday dinner and I knew it had great potential for disaster if tempers were unleashed. At what point do you come to the conclusion that some things never change? We had endured six months of a plethora of excuses, of no shows, of fabricated reasons. It was becoming a joke — just not a funny one.
So we left. And then I saw the footage of how they showed no remorse at keeping us waiting. They seemed content to indulge themselves in their own company with no thought for the fact that we were here as a group and at Mauricio’s invitation.”
In other RHOBH news, the Rumor Fix blog is reporting that on December 21, 2011, four months after Russell Armstrong’stragic suicide, the IRS imposed a tax lien on his property for failure to pay $23,689.94 in back taxes.
Unfortunately for Taylor Armstrong, she will likely be responsible for this tax bill as she remains married to Russell and the lien on Russell’s property stays with his estate.
And finally,Camille Grammer’s ex-husbandKelsey Grammeris expecting twins with his former mistress new wife Kayte Walsh, 32! Kelsey, who won an award at last night’s Golden Globes Awards, reveals he is excited to be a father again.
“I’m really looking forward to meeting these new arrivals,” Kelsey, 56, told reporters last night. “Fatherhood’s always different, based upon the character that comes into your life. They arrive and tell you what you have to do.”
A new episode of the RHOBH airs tonight on Bravo! On the 19th episode this season titled ‘Night of a Thousand Surprises,’ drama flows when Lisa throws a launch party for her new lounge. Meanwhile, Kim discloses the truth about her new boyfriend.
The episode airs at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!

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 newbieDana 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 Maloofduring 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 Glanvillebash 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!

Following her not so pleasant introduction to the group on last week’s episode, Brandi is speaking out against the cast – most notably Lisa Vanderpump, who admitted she wasn’t a fan of Brandi’s due to her friendship with her former permanent houseguest Cedric Martinez.
Brandi blogged, “I don’t think these women were being very fair to me, but girls will be girls. I really believe that you get in life what you give out in life, so they are owed some catty b—hiness coming back at them! I do admit it is a pretty silly look to be rocking a stiletto with a crutch but I do EVERYTHING in heels and a little broken leg isn’t going to stop me!”
Brandi then took things a step further when she made a shocking accusation on twitter! In the tweet below made on Oct. 1, Brandi claims Lisa has been asking for her hand in a threesome with hubby Ken Todd. Ai ya ya. Brandi wrote, “If you dislike me so much PLEASE stop asking me to have a threesome with u Ken!!!! luvu darrrrrling.” Whoa! A screenshot of the tweet is below -
Brandi made the tweet after the RumorFix blog released an interview in which Lisa jokingly bashed Brandi for calling her old by stating she was 60 and needed to get over her grudges. Lisa, actual age 51, stated, “Obviously she can’t count, because I was born in 1960. I think if something’s 60, it could be somebody’s IQ what do you think of that?”
There had been reports that Lisa had to get the law involved in other to keep her former HG Cedric from spilling certain secrets about her and Ken after their fallout.
According to TMZ, Kelsey showed up to court with his new wifeKayte Walsh. However Kayte was forced to leave the courtroom after the judge asked all parties not directly involved with the case to exit the room.
Kelsey won the first battle… sort of. Kelsey got what he wanted as he was allowed to take his two children with Camille for 6 days, beginning today, while he’s in L.A. Apparently Camille did not want Kelsey to take the kids because he would not agree to take them to their regularly scheduled activities, such as dance, sports and therapy.
With the current ruling, Kelsey will be forced to take the kids to all of their scheduled activities. Sources tell TMZ that Kelsey has refused to attend any of the kids’ events if Camille is present. Camille is however planning to attend ALL of the kids’ scheduled activities this week. Who says divorce isn’t fun?
And following last week’s episode, Kim Richards has yet to break her silence on her odd behavior on the show.
A new episode of the RHOBH airs tonight on Bravo. On the 5th episode this season titled “$25,000 Sunglasses?!” We are introduced to new cast member Dana Wilkey! Adrienne hosts a 90210-style grill-and-chill barbecue, but dramas flame up when newbie Brandi arrives. Although Brandi bonds with Camille, the others are shocked by her social blunders as they ponder whether she’ll fit into their clique.
Watch What Happens Live - Kyle Richards is a guest tonight, and a preview clip of the new episode is below -
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON BRANDI’S SHOCKING TWEET & ON TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?
On Tuesday, TMZ broke the story that Kelsey, 56, filed court papers in L.A. County Superior Court, requesting primary physical custody of his two kids with Camille – Mason, 9, and Jude, 6. If you recall, Kelsey dumped Camille, 42, last summer for flight attendant Kayte Walsh, 29, whom he was allegedly having an affair with. Kelsey and Camille’s divorce was then finalized in February and Kelsey married Kayte in the same month.
According to sources, Kelsey and Camille have been at war over the kids who have been experiencing some emotional difficulty in dealing with their parents’ divorce.
Sources close to Camille are however scoffing at Kelsey’s filing, as they state she’s been a full-time mother with 4 nannies while he has been uncooperative in trying to work out a custody agreement. They add that she was willing to give him 50/50 custody, but now all bets are off.
Camille gave a brief statement to RadarOnline, simply stating that “Kelsey is being insensitive to our children.” Camille’s employee friend, Allison DuBoisalso spoke to Radar. “Camille is an excellent mother, and Kesley truly doesn’t have a leg to stand on,” said Allison. “Good luck with that battle Kelsey, you are going to need it.” And in case you’re wondering, yes Allison is the psychic from the infamous dinner from hell episode.
Another employee close friend of Camille’s spoke to PEOPLE stating she is ready to fight for her kids. “She will fight like hell to keep her children with her, being raised by her, exactly where the children wish to be,” the close friend said before going on to bash Kelsey. “He abandoned his family and got married within months of separating from Camille, all of which speaks volumes about his parenting and his respect for his current children.”
As for Kelsey, he refused to give a statement with his rep stating, “Any statement would be inappropriate. The filing speaks for itself.”
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON KELSEY’S FILING? WHO’S A BETTER PARENT – CAMILLE OR KELSEY?
A new report by the HollywoodLife confirms what was reported earlier this week, which is that season 2 has already began filming. In fact, sources reveal the second season is going to blow the first one out of the park as Bravo has some tricks up its sleeves, mainly the plan to add one or two new housewives to the show.
“I know Bravo is telling everyone to ‘not officially announce anything,’ but I personally know for sure they have already started filming for season two and they have offered a few people contracts to be new castmembers on the show,” the source reveals, adding, “They will have new cast members. But that doesn’t mean anyone is leaving.”
The insider adds that Bravo is making certain this season is more dramatic than before, and what better way than to have more trips planned for the housewives. Scary Island 2 anyone? “From what I know, they are trying to really up their game for season two,” says the source. “They are going to feature more celebrities and more group trips with the girls.”
What is it you ask? Well, just a mere $1 million in cash! The mag claims Kelsey deposited the large sum of money into Kayte’s bank account. “He wanted to do something extravagant for Kayte,” a friend tells InTouch. “He’s loaded, so it was a drop in the bucket for him.”
And finally, UsWeeky reports that Kelsey is going to be a grandpa! His actress daughter Spencer Grammer is now expecting a child of her own. The pregnancy is reportedly in the “early” stages. Spencer, 27, tied the knot a month ago on Feb. 11 with James Hesketh. She is Kelsey’s daughter from his first marriage to Doreen Alderman. A photo of Spencer and James is below.
