Viewers saw sisters Kim and Kyle Richards experience what they both called their biggest conflict ever on the season finale of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and now the big question is what is the current status of their relationship?
Numerous media outlets including the Bravo updates on the finale reveal the relationship between the sisters continues to be strained. And now a new report by E! Online attempts to shed some light on the situation.
“They’re speaking again,” a source tells E! of the current status. And what about Kim’s alleged drinking problem? As Kyle outed her as an alcoholic on the finale episode.
According to an insider, if Kim has a drinking problem, it is one she hides very well. “I’ve never seen or heard anything about it,” the longtime friend tells E!, going on to add that all the ladies on the show love their cocktails. “When you watch the show, all of the wives drink in almost every scene.” Good point.
According to Camille’s lawyer, Neal Hersh, the main issue here is Kelsey’s pension, which is estimated at $5 to $10 million. Hersh is worried that if Kelsey marries fiance Kayte Walsh and dies before his divorce settlement with Camille, Kayte could go to the pension administrator as the widow and lay claim to the proceeds. While it is highly unlikely Camille would lose her pension rights, her lawyer wants Kelsey to cough up a $10 million bond to protect her — just in case. Kelsey has refused to put down the $10 mil citing he is unable to. A new hearing for the case has been set for Feb. 7. A judge could decide to grant Kelsey the divorce on that date.
And finally, Camille appeared on ABC’s The View this morning. While she didn’t really reveal much despite being grilled by the show hosts, she did admit she and Kelsey had a few sexless years towards the end of their marriage.
And when asked why Kelsey was in such a rush to introduce their two children to fiance Kayte and get remarried? Camille replied, “He did rush it. He did rush it. Yeah, he’s a bit impetuous, don’t you think?” She later added, “You know, he wants what he wants right away. He’s almost like a child.”
Safe to assume that word of the day calendar is still being put to good use. The interview was a bit awkward to watch as the hosts really tried to grill Camille, who oddly enough did not seem like she wanted to go into too many details about her marriage and Kelsey, unlike her previous interview with Howard Stern.

On the first part airing tonight on Bravo at 9/8c, the ladies regroup with Andy Cohen to rehash the biggest fights of the season. We will get to see Camille vs. Kyle, Kyle vs. Kim, and Kim vs. Taylor. Camille will also attempt to set the record straight on being called “the most hated housewife” in the history of the franchise as well as details of her split from Kelsey.
Watch What Happens Live will not be airing tonight.
In other BH news, Popeater is reporting that Kelsey Grammer, 55, might be getting ready to do the unthinkable, which is to invite his estranged wife Camille Grammer, 42, to his upcoming wedding with fiance Kayte Walsh, 29.
The reason? Kelsey wants so badly for his kids to be present at his wedding that he’s willing to invite Camille if that’s what it takes. So will Camille be attending? The jury is still out on that but D.D. a friend of Camille’s does manage to sing her great praises in the Popeater article.
“Camille is an amazing human being,” D.D. a friend of Camille tells Popeater. “For her, it’s all about her children. She’s willing to put her personal hurt aside to be a great mom.”
Another source tells Popeater that Camille has now come to terms with Kelsey’s decision to remarry and her main concern is putting their kids first.
Allrighty, below is a preview clip of tonight’s episode. Kim Richards calls out the delusionalTaylor Armstrong on her violent threats despite claiming to be an advocate against domestic violence.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW AND TONIGHT’S REUNION PART 1?
According to a new TMZ report, Kelsey Grammer is now planning to tie the knot for the third time in February with fiance Kayte Walsh, and no longer in January as originally planned.
TMZ adds that the wedding, which is being planned for the last 2 weeks of February, will only take place if the judge in his divorce case with estranged wife, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills starCamille Grammer, ends their marriage this Wednesday during a scheduled hearing.
Kelsey’s lawyer filed new legal documents stating he has agreed to every condition Camille requested in order to get a divorce immediately, with the exception of one. That one condition is that Kelsey immediately provide Camille with $10 million bond until they negotiate the final settlement. Kelsey is claiming he cannot meet that condition at the moment.
Camille is still objecting to Kelsey being granted a divorce before their assets are divided. Meanwhile, Popeater is also reporting that Kelsey’s daughter from a previous marriage, Spencer Grammer, is engaged. Spencer, a 27-year-old actress who stars on ABC Family’s Greek is engaged to boyfriend James Hesketh.
According to an insider, “Camille and Spencer had no relationship. … And Spencer and her father are closer than ever since he split with Camille.” Photos of Spencer below.
And just days after Kyle Richardsissued a non-apology apology, Taylor Armstrongis also speaking out on the drama filled finale episode of the Beverly Hills housewives. According to the very delusional Taylor, she meant well with the confrontation conversation she initiated with Kim at her party, and also goes on to call Kim “unpredictable.” Excerpts from Taylor’s blog below -
“I often wonder if we would have had a nice first meeting in Sacramento, if things would have been different for us. At my birthday party, my intention was to sit down next to her (when I asked her friend for a moment with her) and have a talk about how I felt and what went wrong. When Kim stood up as opposed to my sitting down, I knew things were going to go badly. I could tell Kim wasn’t in the “mood” for aheart to heart. Lisa felt it was important for me to sort it out with Kim, but in retrospect, I should have said no and left it alone. Sometimes Kim says things she doesn’t mean (as do I) and with her, I really don’t understand where some of the content comes from. She is unpredictable but, that’s as much as I care to say about that. On occasion, you meet a person with whom you don’t seem to “click” and that, in my opinion, is what happened with Kim and I. We both had our guard up from the beginning and the results weren’t favorable. I wish Kim all the best and hope we can put our pointless bickering behind us.”
Perhaps it’s just me but isn’t “unpredictable” a fancier way of calling someone crazy? A very unnecessary dig. In her blog, Taylor goes on to state she regrets being a two faced sh*t stirrer “whatever part my comment played in” the finale episode.
After reading Taylor’s blog, I had to go back and watch the scene again and below is the exact words of exchange between Taylor and Kim at her party.
Taylor: You look… Could you excuse me for a minute? I just, Can I have a word with you for just a second?
Taylor: Lisa started asking me about why, how I all of a sudden got involved in this whole altercation between Camille and Kyle and I really feel like it only had to do with you kinda like trying to wind me up in LAX. And you know, I just want to kind of get that off my chest because I had nothing to do with it. And like you had all the opportunity in the world to stop what was happening between Camille and Kyle and instead it went on and on and on and I really feel like I shouldn’t have been dragged into it.
Kim: Really? I feel like none of you could let it die…
And that’s exactly how the supposed “heart to heart” conversation began except feel free to read Taylor’s words in a condescending tone. Quite frankly, I’m not a fan of all the bull and all the cruel insinuations regarding Kim. In a matter of days, Kim is now an insane unpredictable alcoholic and none of these ladies want to take responsibility for their actions. It’s that whole I’m sorry but…, I regret what I said but… None of Kim’s actions on the show have been unpredictable. Kyle was the one who tried to attack her in the limo, and Taylor was the one who flew off her rocker, not once, but twice whenever Kim tried to bring up her role in winding Camille up in NYC. And isn’t it funny that when Lisa brought up the same exact thing Kim had been trying to say, Taylor reacted very differently. I feel that all these comments and insinuations are truly disgusting, transparent, and a way for Taylor to deflect from her actions.
And I also have to ask, if Kim is an unpredictable alcoholic, why approach her? why confront her? This is regarding both Taylor and Kyle’s actions. Must say, not too many sane people will confront or try to attack an unpredictable alcoholic in public, especially one who is minding their business. As I said in the recap, something is not adding up.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHT ON THE LATEST BH NEWS?
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 -
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE REUNION CLIP AND TMZ’S REPORT ABOUT CAMILLE?
According to a new report by RadarOnline, Kelsey, who allegedly enjoys dressing up in lingerie and high heels for his sex life, once took raunchyphotos of his other unusual proclivities that ended up being seen by the media.
Camille A source tells RadarOnline that not only does Kelsey stand to lose 50% of his reported $120 million fortune to Camille, but he should also be worried about some of the secrets he’s shared with her coming out. Why? Well apparently Camille has the ability to write a tell-all book about Kelsey, and if she chooses to, she’ll have plenty of material to use.
“It’s absolutely true that Kelsey wears women’s underwear, and lingerie,” Camille a source told Radar. “Camille never understood why he did. However, that is just the tip of the iceberg of what she knows about Kelsey.”
The “source” adds, “She knows things about Kelsey that would shock his fans. Camille has chosen to take the high road during the divorce proceedings, but she is getting to the point where she is considering setting the record straight once and for all about her marriage to Kelsey. There is no pre-nup agreement that would prohibit her from writing a tell-all book. She was a devoted wife to him.”
Apparently cross-dressing is nothing new to Kelsey. “Kelsey has been into women’s clothing for a long time,” the source said adding that he is not gay, but has led a wild life and pushed a lot of boundaries.
“Kelsey was heavily into cocaine during his Cheers days. He was so out of control. He would do practically anything. He cleaned up his act later… But sexually he pushed limits. He was into, let’s just say, having women treat him like a woman in terms of what was done in the bedroom.”
The alleged photos of Kelsey involved him having sex in women’s clothing along with some photos of his toys. The reason the photos were never published? They “were too hardcore.”
And oh yeah, the “source” adds that “Kelsey should give her what she deserves in the divorce settlement, he should give her whatever she is asking for or else.” Just kidding, we added the ‘or else’ part of course though everything something about this article has Camille’s grubby little fingerprints all over it. Let’s just hope Kelsey’s new fiance Kayte Walsh knows what she’s signing up for.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS REPORT? CAMILLE’S GRUBBY LITTLE FINGERPRINTS?
As reported a while back, Kelsey filed for a bifurcation last month which is basically a means to get a judge to rush the divorce process. However Camille, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, fired off a legal response on Wednesday asking the judge to reject Kelsey’s request as she also estimates their estate’s value at $120 million.
Camille’s reason? She believes Kelsey’s request is “solely for the reason that he intends to remarry as soon as possible.” She adds, “I don’t believe this is a sufficient reason to prejudice my rights to the community estate.” Camille is also requesting $10 million in cash immediately from Kesley if the judge grants his request. The money is to hold her over until a final decision is made on the separation of the estate.
In other news, Camille is also revealing in two new interviews that she met Kelsey’s fiance Kayte Walsh for the first time on Thursday. Camille revealed this both to Andy Cohen on Bravo’s WWHL and Popeater’s Rob Shuter.
“It was interesting to say the least,” Camille told Andy of meeting the future Mrs. Grammer. “She was nice, and we both said hello. She has a very strong handshake,” Camille quipped with a laugh. “It was uncomfortable. Kelsey looked shocked. The look on his face!” She added: “It’s the first time I’ve seen him and her together. And with my children, that was uncomfortable.”
And when it comes to her decision on doing another season of the show, Camille tells Popeater she has made her decision but will wait to see how the reunion turns out cannot make her announcement yet.
And finally, Kelsey appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman last night during which he announced his plans to marry Kayte in February. “Kayte’s my new girl, and we’re planning to get married soon,” he said. “Sometime in February.”
So how are the kids doing? “The kids seem to be doing okay, yeah,” said Kelsey of daughter Mason, 9, and son Jude, 6. “We’ve been spending quite a bit of time with them, Kayte and I.” It has been rumored that Kelsey’s in a rush to wed Kayte, a British citizen, so that she can get to stay in the country.

First things first, on the 12th episode of the BH Housewives tonight (the finale is next week) airing at 10/9c, Camille begins to detect fissures in her marriage as Kelsey continues his stay in New York. Meanwhile, Taylor puts the focus on her own marital issues. And Kyle’s daughter graduates from college, yet nieces Paris and Nicky Hilton fail to attend the event, upsetting Kyle.
Watch What Happens Live – The guest tonight will be none other thanCamille Grammer. Should be good!
Moving on to other news, Camille’s married male BFF Nick Stabile, you know, the one she kisses on the lips, is finally speaking out on his odd relationship with her in a new interview with E! Online. Even more interesting, Nick brought along his wife Tricia for the interview! Tricia defends Nick and Camille’s relationship, blaming it all on Bravo’s editing. Guess Camille’s paychecks really do go a long way.
“If it were edited differently, you’d see her kiss me before or after she kissed Nick because that’s what happens every time,” said Tricia. “All three of us are Italian!” Tricia adds that she’s not bothered by Camille at all and that Camille is one of her “closest friends in Malibu.”
“We’re all really close. Kelsey [Grammer] and I hug and kiss when we see each other,” adds Nick, denying any romance with Camille. “In the moment, I wasn’t thinking ‘How will this be perceived?’ I would never disrespect my wife. I would never disrespect Kelsey and their marriage.” Nick also adds that despite the pending divorce, the Grammers have been great about not putting him or Tricia in the middle.
In a separate article, E! also reports that while Kelsey isn’t speaking to the media about Camille, his closest friends are defending him and they’re all saying Camille over-played the whole being blindsided by the divorce thingy. Not surprising as this is becoming more apparent judging from Camille’s latest interview with Howard Stern on Wednesday. In the interview, Camille admitted she and Kelsey stopped having sex “years ago” because he wasn’t man enough.
“There’s a lot more to the Camille, Kelsey tale than what’s being reported out there,” explains a frustrated friend close to Kelsey. “Their marriage was over years before he met Kayte [Walsh]” dishes the source.
“She was all about money, money, money the entire time they were married,” adds the source. “Kelsey had given up on love. His marriage was just like another business venture, but then he met Kayte and fell for her right away.”
Also in the interview with Howard yesterday, Camille revealed she and Kelsey discussed having an open marriage during the last year of their marriage but ultimately they both agreed not to have one. Though judging by both of their actions, perhaps they missed the memo.
A video preview of tonight’s clip is below -

It seems Camille Grammer has had a change of heart when it comes to wanting an amicable and peaceful divorce as the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star went on the Howard Stern Show this morning and strongly insinuated her estranged husband is a cross dresser that might be gay.
During the interview, Howard asked Camille about her sex life with Kelsey Grammerand she stated they stopped having sex “years ago.” Howard then relayed to her that there are rumors she put out there that “Kelsey’s a total freak.” Camille replied: “Bingo! After three years, I said, ’Enough. You need to be a man for me. I need to be with a man.’ That’s all I can say. I’ll leave it at that.”
Oh but it didn’t end there as Camille then went on to insinuate that not only does Kelsey like to cross dress but that he might also be gay. “Let’s put it this way. He’s in the perfect play. Like, when I knew that he got [a role in] La Cage Aux Folles, I was like, ‘Ok, I’m going to lose him.’ But I thought it was going to be to one of his back-up dancers. I didn’t think it was going to be to another woman,” said Camille.
Howard then asked her point blank if she thought Kelsey was gay. She replied, “I think he’s straight. There were times when I didn’t throughout our marriage because I couldn’t understand why he couldn’t physically be with me.”
Wowzers. Other excerpts from Camille’s interview below -
Camille On When She First Started Dating Kelsey - “When I met him, yeah, he was a mess.” While a mess, Kelsey had game: “He’s very charming when you first meet him…he swept me off my feet.” But the charm eventually wore off: “He was boring on the weekends. I always wanted to do something and he just wanted lay around the house and watch Fox TV. Fox News, yeah.”
On Whether Or Not She Plans To Return For Another Season - Camille has her doubts. “We haven’t made that decision yet. Would you stay on a show that did that to you? I mean, c’mon. They demonize me.”
And finally, TMZ adds that this isn’t the first time Camille has insinuated or told others that Kelsey likes to cross dress. Sources tell TMZ Camille made the same claims to some of her cast members after Kelsey dumped her.
Kelsey’s rep tells TMZ, “While it is not clear why Camille Grammer continues making public statements about her marriage to Kelsey, it is crystal clear that Kelsey will continue not responding, regardless of content.”
