Everyday Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star Lisa Vanderpump gives me a reason to love her even more. I'll be honest, I wasn't on board with Lisa in earlier seasons. It's not that I didn't like her, it's just that I was indifferent towards her. Oh, how times have changed!
This season's Lisa is every bit as stylish and classy as she's been the past two seasons, but it's awesome to see her forming opinions and standing up for her friends. Yes, she's brash and brutally honest, but she's also (in my opinion) totally genuine and grounded. Not to mention, I love her wardrobe, her precious son-in-law, and the romance that is still totally alive between her and Ken Todd. You just can't fake that kind of relationship. She's real…and she could buy and sell me a thousand times over!
Not only has Lisa gained a spin-off (can't wait!) due to her RHOBH popularity, but she's also getting outside deals. First up? She's judging the Miss Universe pageant alongside Kourtney Kardashian's beau Scott Disick. Did I mention that she's nothing if not honest?
Aaaahhh… love. Enough to warm the cold, cold heart of this soulless reality TV blogger. In celebration of well, some people's happiness, we've decided to put together a list of our favorite reality TV couples. Trust me – that's a lot harder to do than putting together a list of the couples we can't stand! Stay tuned for that one.
Previous reports have claimed Adriennegot her lawyer involved after she believes she was bullied by Brandi at former friend Lisa Vanderpump‘s coaxing. Adrienne also allegedly skipped the cast trip to Paris. And now it’s being revealed that she also skipped the season finale party!
“Adrienne decided not to go the reunion taping because she did not feel like taking any of Lisa’s snarky questions,” a source close to the show shared with RadarOnline. “Adrienne has had enough fights with Lisa and Brandi this season and after their constant barrage of nastiness she decided not to go to the reunion to have them continue their tirade against her.”
No, hell has yet to freeze over, and yes that is a photo of Brandi Glanville looking rather chummy with her ex-husband’s former mistress wife, singer LeAnn Rimes!
To bring you up to date, once upon a time, Brandi, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, was happily married to actor Eddie Cibrian, that is until Eddie went off to shoot a movie with LeAnn, during which the two began to have an affair! Brandi forgave Eddie and tried to make her marriage work, but couldn’t as Eddie and LeAnn continued to see each other.
Fast forward to today, Eddie and LeAnn are now man and wife, while Brandi is a single mom to her two sons with Eddie. Things had gotten pretty ugly with Brandi & LeAnn, with Brandi, rightfully, slamming LeAnn at every opportunity in the press. Which now makes these latest set of photos, all the more shocking.
The photos were snapped on Sunday during the soccer game of Brandi and Eddie’s son, Jake. Brandi and LeAnn shared laughs while sitting on a blanket in the grass, and were also pictured walking together. Eddie was also present at the game, and kept it classy as always when he later displayed some PDA with LeAnn. More photos of the trio below!
Must say, kudos to Brandi for being able to get over the anger and trying to get along with LeAnn for the sake of her kids. Don’t know if I would be able to do the same if I were in her shoes, but kudos to Brandi for putting her kids first.
Moving on to Lisa Vanderpump, who might be getting her own Bravo spinoff after all!
Just a month after a report came out stating that Bravo had decided not to pick up her show, which she had already filmed a pilot for. Huffington Post writer Rob Shuter just tweeted moments ago that it has now been picked up by Bravo. Rob wrote, “Congrats to @LisaVanderpump her spin off Bravo show has been picked up several insiders tell me.”
According to reports, the spinoff show will focus on the ins and outs of one of her restaurants, following the chaos surrounding the restaurant and the lives of both Lisa and her staff.
The timing of this report is interesting, as Lisa, age 56, recently revealed that her hubby Ken Todd does not want her to return to the RHOBH. In a recent interview with KTLA, Lisa made the surprising revelation.
“I don’t know really ,” said Lisa when asked about a Season three return. “My husband’s not as in to it as he was because for some reason I’ve managed to fool him for the last 30 years in to thinking I’m perfect and he hates to see me criticized.”
Even worse, Lisa also shares Ken’s sentiments following the nasty season two reunion. “After the reunion, I felt blindsided and I went out of town for a week because I really did feel devastated and it wasn’t just the accusations it was the silence of my friends that’s what was really hurtful,” said Lisa.
Safe to assume if Lisa’s spinoff does well, she is a goner on the RHOBH! However, it’s highly unlikely her show will air before the next season of the RHOBH begins to film, as Bravo began filming last season during Spring.

Last night’s season finale episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills brought us back to the show we know and love with an over-the-top wedding featuring all the trimmings those of us in the real world could never afford. It was beautiful, it was captivating, it was pink, and most importantly, it was drama free! I think it was a perfect season finale — until the last fifteen minutes, which I’ll pretend never happened.
It’s the day before Pandora’s pinksplosion fantasy wedding. As planned, the Vanderfabulous-Todds have converted part of their tennis court into the wedding site complete with a massive white tent that ensconces every surface in dangling crystals. While everything is carrying on as scheduled, Kevin Lee is apparently out of town! Kevin’s assistant is there in his absence and while she lacks Kevin’s bling, bling, she seems far more efficient.

Last night, Cedric was shown “crashing” the opening party of Lisa’s SUR restaurant in an attempt to make up with Lisa. Lisa ultimately refused to make up with him, instead asking Cedric to leave her party.
Today, Cedric is telling Reality Tea, via his rep, that he was invited to the party, while also making some interesting allegations about Lisa’s hubby Ken Todd, alleging their “loveless, sexless marriage” is on “lie support.”
Below is Cedric’s full statement to Reality Tea:
“As viewers have seen all season, and especially on last night’s overly scripted episode of Real Housewives,Lisa Vanderpump is a bitter, conniving woman who will do anything for fame (and a terrible actress)! She keeps saying what I “did” to her was “vicious” but she never really says what I allegedly did.
Well, let me tell you what she did: When Lisa discovered the truth about her husband’s prostitutes, affairs and love child, she made the choice to stay with a cheater so she could continue on her desperate quest for fame. Then she kicked me to the curb, filed a false police complaint and conspired with her friend, the Editor of Us Weekly to defame and slander me.
And you gotta give her credit. It’s worked, so far. She’s more famous than ever; her loveless, sexless marriage is still alive, albeit on life support; and I’ve been marginalized. But the truth is starting to leak out and soon everyone will know of her secret extramarital love affair and the truth about her vicious attacks on me.
What viewers didn’t see last night was the weeks of back-and-forth negotiations between my manager and [name removed], the Executive Producer of Real Housewives. Dave cleared my invite (and the “olive branch” script) with Lisa. In fact, they even discussed a possible spinoff starring Lisa and me, if, according to [name removed], everything went well at the Sur party.
As proof, I’ve asked my manager to release a few of the many emails between him and [name removed] (below).
Lisa has succeeded thus far in trashing my name and manipulating the other housewives. But the race is long and I’m confident that as the truth slowly comes out, the public will come to realize Lisa’s pretty facade hides a heartless, bitter, rotting core.
Thanks to my friends and fans who have stuck with me throughout this painful process. It’s been a rough year but with your help and support, I’ve landed on my feet and I know the best is yet to come!
P.S. SUR: Sexy Unique Restaurant? Really? WTF!”
Indeed, Cedric also supplied us with the emails exchanged between his manager and the executive producer of the series (we have decided to blur out their name).
The emails, posted below, gives us a good behind the scenes look at the way these shows are filmed. The RHOBH producer confirms the time Cedric will be arriving to Lisa’s party and states that while Lisa has been warned Cedric is coming to attempt to make up with her, the other housewives are not aware and will be genuinely surprised to see him.
To sum this up, it appears a producer for the show invited Cedric to Lisa’s party. Lisa was given a heads up, but her reaction to Cedric and his attempt to make up with her appear to have been genuine. This doesn’t come as a major surprise as the producers of these shows are always trying to stir things up for drama a.k.a adding the sister-in-law you hate to your cast, or adding your nemesis to the show only for the two of you to become friends. Hey, at least they’re not going into film studios in Hollywood to film fake scenes, months after the fact. Coughs the Kardashians coughs.
Written in July 2011, the emails also confirms that Lisa was/is indeed in talks with Bravo for her own spinoff. An excerpt from the email reads: “Lisa is in negotiations with Bravo for a potential spin-off that would focus on the staff at Sur. That deal has been in the works for a while. All along I’ve been saying that it’s too bad Lisa and Cedric had their falling out because Cedric would’ve been perfect fit for that project.”
Do I believe the Housewives series are fake? Absolutely not. I believe most of it is real (a.k.a. the drama between Kim and Kyle Richards) with some added manufactured drama (a.k.a. producers inviting Cedric to Lisa’s party). The housewives series is what I would call ‘Manufactured Drama’ while the Kardashians’ series is what I would call ‘Scripted Drama.’

The latest by Cedric is an article from Star Magazine in which he spills all sorts of secrets about the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast. In the article, Cedric states Kim Richards’saddiction issues are much worse than viewers can imagine, reveals Lisa’s true feelings about hubby Ken and costar Adrienne Maloof and also claims Adrienne might be in the worst financial condition out of all the cast.
Below are a few of Cedric’s “highlights” from the article:
Kim Richards’ Struggles With Alcohol Addiction – According to Cedric, an addition to alcohol is the least of Kim’s problems. “The truth is much darker,” he says. “I’m thankful Kim is now in rehab, hopefully getting some professional help.”
Lisa’s Feelings On Hubby Ken and Adrienne Maloof - Cedric says that despite their united font on the show, Lisa is “mortified and embarrassed,” by her husband Ken over some of his ‘ignorant jabs.’ As for Adrienne, Cedric states Lisa hates her neighbor and costar. “She feels Adrienne is not worthy of being on the show,” he says.
Cedric’s Relationship With Brandi Glanville- Cedric also reveals what has been reported previously, which is that he and newbie Brandi actually just met last year at a lunch organized by the show producers, and not during their modeling days in Europe a decade ago as they previously claimed. “It was a manufactured friendship to keep me on the show,” Cedric tells Star.
Why Was He Living With Lisa? And What Happened To Lisa’s Complaint? - “I moved out months before she landed the role,” says Cedric adding that producers convinced him to move back in for season 1 filming. As for the complaint Lisa filed against him with the cops last year over claims of a possible extortion, Cedric says Lisa’s case was weak. “I was never even contacted by police.”
The BH Housewives Lying About Their Wealth? – “Not everything is as it seems,” says Cedric, who claims seemingly uberrich Adrienne may actually be in the worst financial shape of them all. “They were forced to unload 98 percent of their beloved Palms Casino Resort,” claims Cedric. A report came out last year stating Adrienne was having financial difficulty and was forced to downgrade her lavish lifestyle. And last October, Adrienne admitted she had been “cutting back” on her lavish lifestyle.
Cedric, who will be appearing on the season 2 finale of the RHOBH, also claims producers of the show were the ones that invited him to Lisa’s party. “Lisa confronted me with some of the worst acting you’ll ever see on television. She claimed I wasn’t invited and told me to leave. It’s sums up all the phoniness and manufactured drama on the show,” he says.
Meanwhile, the RHOBH season 2 reunion filmed on Thursday and we’re hearing Kim Richards, who is still in rehab, did not attend. Below are some tweets from Kyle Richards, Taylor Armstrong and Andy Cohen after the taping:
Kyle tweeted – “Emotionally draining day. So hard to re live all the difficult moments this season on #RHOBH. Thank u to our “therapist” @BravoAndy. Xo”
Taylor tweeted – “Thanks for the great support! For the haters, when all the truth comes out I’ll try to post some delish “crow” recipes.” Really Taylor?
Andy tweeted – “Long day taping #RHOBH Reunion. Emotional, intense, dramatic. The wives deserve a cocktail right about now…. !”
No word yet on how many parts the reunion will be but it is scheduled to air on January 30.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON CEDRIC’S COMMENTS ABOUT THE BH HOUSEWIVES? DO YOU BELIEVE HIM?
On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsa little bit fun and fancy came back to us as the ladies sans Taylor embarked on a trip to Hawaii. Luckily, Loony Lips’ drama wasn’t far behind as she called mid-beach to let everyone know she had ditched her hubs for greener pastures. Hey, I heard Mohammed is single! What about that Martin? Kim also missed the show, but Brandi was there in her stead and ready for a full-frontal close-up! That was some bikini!
Things begin as The White Party rages on! Moments after Kyle and co. have kicked Taylor and Russell out for threatening to sue Camille, the ladies reconvene in the all-white living room to break down the situation again for the umpteenth time. Is she or isn’t she? Lying that is! No one seems to know what to believe. Even Taylor’s BFF is pretty mute about the situation. Adrienne is still pretty pissed that Taylor involved the ladies in all this mess — which I’m pretty sure she thinks is nonsense. Only Dana readily believes her BFFL. Hey girl wants to stay on RHOBH!
