The National Enquirer is reporting that Taylor will be getting the boot once the second season ends. The reason? Apparently Taylor became a “downer” on the show and her costars “complained to producers that she was constantly trying to steal the show.”
The mag adds that Taylor alienated her fellow RHOBH housewives with her nonstop ploys for pity and attention before the suicide tragedy. Even more surprising, Bravo has reportedly told Taylor of the plans to fire her. “Taylor is just a downer,” reveals an insider. “Consoling Taylor has become a full-time job for the rest of the women and this was all BEFORE Russell’s death!”
“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was turning into the Taylor Armstrong therapy show. Whenever the wives are together, Taylor would somehow manage to start crying and complaining about her life,” adds the source. Yikes!
A source is however telling E! News that the story is false and that Bravo has not kicked Taylor off the show. Guess we will have to wait and see if Taylor is really off the show.
In other RHOBH news, now that he has a new show to promote and his ex-wife is eclipsing his celebrity, Kelsey Grammer is speaking out about his marriage to former RHOBH villainess, Camille Grammer! Among other things, he accuses her of threatening to end their marriage for years and states that appearing on RHOBH was the final straw for their relationship!
Kelsey tells interviewer Piers Morgan that Camille was the one who put the pesky idea of divorce in his head! “Camille asked for a divorce really almost the first day we were married,” Kelsey insisted. “If you say you want a divorce enough times, you’re going to get one.” Did she also ask him to cheat on her with a 20-something?
“I think she married me because I was ‘Frasier’,” Kelsey continues, contending that Camille was after his notoriety! Which may be true, but still!
Furthermore Kelsey explains his participation in RHOBH was a “parting gift” to his wife of 13-years, claiming the marriage was in trouble before filming began! “It was my way of saying, ‘Look, you always wanted to be famous. Here you go,’” maintaining that he knew their marriage would not survive once Camille decided to do the show.
Even more shocking, Kelsey admits: “I think what I was trying to do was sell it to myself,” he told Piers of the couple’s relationship. “There was this small voice in the back of my head saying, ‘This isn’t going to work.’ But I stuck to it.” Gee… what a class act. #sarcasm.
As for their divorce, Kelsey concurs his affair was wrong, but he wanted to support Camille in her attempts at fame. “I was trying to do some noble gesture to make the destruction of the previous marriage go easier somehow and that was a mistake,” he said of appearing on HW with her and attending the Tony Awards as a couple. “I should have walked home and said, ‘We’re done. You finally have everything you wanted, and I’ve found a new life.’”
And taking a jab at Camille’s success on Real Housewives, Kelsey snipes that reality TV isn’t a way to achieve real fame, but “you still get attention; you still get all those things that come along for the ride, which I think is what she was most interested in.”
Yeah, I’m going to file this interview under the category of “Things That Leave A Bad Taste In Your Mouth!” I hope neither of the ex-couple’s two children, which they are involved in a nasty custody dispute over, happened to view that interview!
As for Camille she is having none of his excuses! When a fan asked if she watched the interview, Camille responded: “No, I couldn’t watch. I had heard that he was going to be mean and disrespectful.” Poor Camille! Good for her for taking the high road in this latest chapter of their never-ending divorce!
While Camille didn’t have much to say about Kelsey’s callous interview, new Celebrity Apprentice contestant Lisa Lampanelli did! She Tweeted: “Kelsey Grammer: Camille married ‘Frasier’ not me. So she thought she married a pompous self-absorbed alcoholic. Nothing like Kelsey at all!” Buuurn!
