The day of reckoning has come for Kingsley’sfirst (reported) bite victim, 80-year old former family friend of Kim Richards, Kay Rozario.
Rozario filed suit after she was bitten on her hand – reportedly down to the bone – by Kim’s pit bull while staying at her house back in March 2014. Although she was seeking restitution in the amount of roughly $1 million, Rozario was ultimately awarded only $8,083.53. This amount was $4 grand higher than the cost of her medical bills – $4,083.53 – which Kim refused to pay, thus sparking the initial lawsuit. The judge awarded a moderately higher amount because he said Rozario “deserved some more cash for emotional distress and trauma after the attack,” according to TMZ.
True to form, Kim never responded to Rozario’s lawsuit, so the judge was forced to enter a default judgment.
In her Bravo blogLipsa Rinnaweighs in on the “Hunger Games” this week that was part 1 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion. She entered the reunion as a newbie, and with much trepidation. She hadn’t seen any of the ladies since filming for RHOBH had wrapped months before and says, “I could have gone another few months, or really, another few lifetimes without seeing them.” But see them, she did! And they lived up to her very low expectations about as well as she anticipated. “It seems some came in ready to toss out passive aggressive insults about how much better they were than the rest of us, and others came in with a more direct approach, shooting out insults the whole way through. Just as classy as I had anticipated it to be,” she quips.
Rinna first addresses the garbled, mumbly jab Kim Richards’attempted over Rinna doing a Depends commercial, which she claims earned her at least 7 figures. She says YES, not NO to 7 figure gigs! Meanwhile, Kim says YES to Diving with the Stars. And Drinking in Her Closet (allegedly). Apparently, as part of Rinna’s commercial contract, Kimberly Clark (Depends parent organization) donated a quarter of a million dollars to the charity Dress for Success: “a global not-for-profit organization that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support, and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.” Lisa adds, “The fact that I got paid handsomely and Dress For Success did as well is worth any teasing or taunting I may get. If ‘not taking pride’ in the jobs I choose means this worthy charity gets a hearty six figure check and some recognition, then so be it!”
Airing tonight is episode 2 titled, ‘Chocolate Louboutins.’ A Bravo press release states “It’s Easter weekend in Beverly Hills but that doesn’t mean that there is any less drama. Adrienne is on her way to Vegas for a shoot with a hot male model but she reluctantly decides to takes her husband Paul.
Meanwhile, Kyle and Kim start squabbling at their family’s vacation home in Palm Desert when Kyle accuses Kim of having no life outside her children, an accusation that just might be true. The conflict escalates back home in Beverly Hills as the sisters celebrate Kim’s daughter’s birthday at a posh spa.”
Appearing on tonight’s Watch What Happens Live – Patti Stanger and Hoda Kotb.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE?
If it seems as if you’re being bombarded with a new Housewives franchise every couple of weeks, it’s likely because you are.
The latest franchise coming our way tonight is the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The premiere episode, airing at 10/9c on Bravo, will introduce us to the six new ladies who are getting ready to stick their heads into the Bravo Housewives toilet.
While the most of the other housewives series feature unknowns, this series stars some well known names. The most famous cast member would have to be Camille Grammer, who recently filed for divorce from husband actor Kelsey Grammer after 14 years of marriage. In case you haven’t been keeping up with the divorce drama, Kelsey then went on to impregnate his new girlfriend just weeks after Camille filed for divorce, and just last week, Kelsey announced publicly that his much younger girlfriend suffered a miscarriage.
So what can we expect in tonight’s premiere? A Bravo press release states “Sisters Kyle and Kim Richards have trouble seeing eye-to-eye on anything and aren’t afraid to fight it out. Kyle, who promised her mom she’d look after her sister isn’t sure if she can keep her word with so much inter-family drama happening. Meanwhile, Lisa VanderPump happily welcomes house guests to join her and her husband Ken. Lisa’s personal trainer and close friend may turn out to be the house guest that never leaves. But in a mansion like Lisa’s, who can blame him? Join these ladies in the lap of luxury and enjoy a rich serving of drama tonight.”

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREMIERE OF THE BEVERLY HILLS HOUSEWIVES?
Move over the Real Housewives of OC! For there are some blonder ladies with more frozen/injected faces and younger body parts ready to take your place! Not only is Bravo officially announcing the cast of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills today, the network is also announcing the new franchise will debut on October 14!
The premiere date is a bit of a surprise considering the Real Housewives of Atlanta season 3 is set to debut on October 4. It seems Bravo is wasting no time over-saturating us with their Housewives franchises.
And when it comes to the Beverly Hills cast, it includes Camille Grammer, who recently filed for divorce from Frasier star Kelsey Grammer, who has since gotten his much younger girlfriend pregnant. Adrienne Maloof, who is part of the Maloof family, which owns the Sacramento Kings NBA team and the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. KimandKyle Richards , who are former child stars and aunts to alleged coke-head Paris Hilton.
Below are photos and bios of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!
Camille Grammer – Camille is a multi-talented model, actress, dancer, and advocate, who calls Beverly Hills her home. Grammer began her career as a dancer on Club MTV. She was married to sitcom star and icon, Kelsey Grammer, for 13 years. Together, they have a daughter, Mason, and a son, Jude. Camille and Kelsey own a production company, Grammnet Inc. She has appeared on both the big and small screen. She has also appeared as a dancer in several music videos.
Adrienne Maloof – A savvy “no-nonsense” businesswoman, Adrienne Maloof is an Albuquerque, New Mexico native who moved to the palm tree-lined streets of Beverly Hills 15 years ago. Adrienne, her mother and four brothers comprise the Maloof Family dynasty whose multi-faceted sports and entertainment enterprise includes the Sacramento Kings, Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. Married to prominent Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Nassif, she is a mom through and through, raising her three young sons, Gavin (7) and twins Christian and Colin (4).
Bravo made some major announcements this week about what is to come next season. The biggest announcement came in the form of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
There had been numerous rumblings and reports but Bravo has finally confirmed the Beverly Hills Housewives series will be the fifth spin-off based on the original “Real Housewives of Orange County.” No word yet on when the show will premier.
As for the cast, it has been reported Paris and Nicky Hilton’s aunts, Kim and Kyle Richards, have been cast. Kim and Kyle are sisters of Paris’s mom, Kathy Hilton. They are also former child stars. Restaurant owner Lisa Todd, who owns the swanky Villa Blanca restaurant in Beverly Hills has also reportedly been cast as a third housewife.
Real Housewives of Atlanta – Bravo also confirmed the return of the Atlanta housewives, more importantly they confirmed all five housewives will be returning. Kim Zolciak made recent headlines when she revealed she had yet to sign on for season 3. According to a report, the women will each receive $150,000 for their third season.
Real Housewives of D.C. – Notably absent from Bravo’s announcements were the Real Housewives of Washington D.C. which should have finished filming last year. If you recall, there was a big scandal with the White House party crashers, Michaeleand Tareq Salahi, who were part of the cast though Bravo officially said they were simply auditioning them to be on the show. Michaele and her husband had filmed for months with other women, so it would be pretty much impossible for Bravo to air the season without them.
We also reported that Bravo was polling viewers last December to gage their opinion on the two. Guess we will all have to wait a little bit more to see about the DC Housewives.
