Fast forward to today andKyle Richards is now stating the released trailer is actually “mild” in comparison to just how dramatic the new season really is. Is that even possible? “That doesn’t even put a dent in it,” says Kyle. “I was thinking, of all of the things they could have pulled — they used the mild stuff. I guess they didn’t want to overwhelm everyone.”
Kyle adds that this season is very emotional as the relationships and dynamics between the castmates continue to change. “There’s been a lot of shift in the dynamic,” admits Kyle. “I’ve gotten to know the girls even better. Some of them at the beginning I knew better than others. Now we all know each other inside and out but the dynamics do shift throughout the season. People that you would be surprised to side with and not speaking and going back and forth. That’s definitely prevalent this season.” Interesting.
Meanwhile, Kyle’s sister Kim Richardsis assuring fans of the show that unlike last season, she has found her voice and nobody’s messing with her! Just ask “slut pig” Brandi Glanville.
“I think last season, as I’ve said all along, it takes me a while to get to know people. So I think a lot of what you saw of me last year was very quiet, almost intimidated — well, maybe intimidated isn’t the right word,” said Kim. “And I was uncomfortable being around all the girls, and the cattiness and the fighting, and it overwhelmed me. So I think you saw a side of me that really wasn’t me. So even though I said I wasn’t going to come back, I said “You know what? Time out — I’m going to work on myself.” And I got stronger, and decided I was going to come back and show everybody who I really am.”
Kim, who reveals she will be going “through some personal stuff” on the show, also echoes Kyle’s statements when she states the new season is way more “exciting, explosive, and dramatic” than the first.
And finally Adrienne Maloof also spoke out on the new season stating new cast member Brandi is like a child. “She kind of weaves herself in and out,” Adrienne, 49, says of Brandi, 38. “She is like bringing a child [to a party]. You don’t know really what she is going to say. She has no filter, so that’s why you want to stay tuned!”
The new season of the RHOBH premieres Sep 5. Must say September 5 cannot get here soon enough!

About Taylor’s impending divorce, Kyle tells People,”She’s going to pull through. She’s a beautiful girl, she’s a smart girl; she’ll get through it.” Kyle has been trying to take her cast mate’s mind off of the currents situation with fun distractions like a recent beach day for the pals and their daughters. Commenting on Taylor and Russell’s five-year-old daughter Kennedy, Kyle continues,”Kennedy’s doing well. She’s doing great. She’s kind of oblivious to what’s going on.”
As for the long-term, Kyle believes that her friend will make it through this a stronger person. And as for Kyle, she’s just doing what any good girlfriend would do. She says, “I’ve seen her a lot lately. I love Taylor, and I know she’s going through a hard time right now. I’m just being there as a friend.”
Kyle is about to get a lot busier as well. RadarOnline reports she is returning to her acting roots, and I for one, was a HUGE fan of her in Disney’s frightening (well frightening for Disney) Watcher in the Woods. Kyle will be starring in an upcoming Lifetime movie entitled Deadly Sibling Rivalry. Should her sister Kim Richards (the bigger of the two as far as child stars go…need I remind you of the awesomeness of the Witch Mountain movies?) watch her back? “Don’t think too much into the title,” jokes Kyle.
Also on the horizon for Kyle is a handbag line and a book, a la niece Paris Hilton. However, nearest and dearest to Kyle’s heart is the housewives franchise. She is very excited about the upcoming season, despite ending on a sour note with some of her cast mates. Kyle admits, “The reunion was absolutely torture: It’s absolutely torture because you see things that the girls are saying that you never knew they said about you, and all of a sudden you’re like, ‘Wait a minute! I thought that we were friends? I thought we were OK?’” Nevertheless, it’s her favorite business venture.
And just because it’s too cute/strange not to mention, Kyle’s precious toddler Portia, with hottie husband Mauricio Umansky, is the newest member of the Twitterverse. You can follow Kyle’s youngest daughter as she spouts sweet sentiments such as “Dear God, I love u in the morning like a diamond ring.” A collective “awww” please!
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KYLE’S NEW ACTING CAREER? WILL YOU BE FOLLOWING PORTIA ON TWITTER?
Surprisingly missing from the cast photo is Brandi Glanville who was reported to be the new housewife. But fret not as Brandi will be on the new season though Bravo is not making her an official housewife. “Though not official “housewives,” this season the ladies are joined by two new friends: Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey, who certainly know how to spice things up in the world’s most famous zip code,” reads the press release. Dana is described as a party planner who throws elaborate parties (she’s the party planner behind Taylor’s infamous $60k tea party for her 4 year-old daughter in season one). A photo of Dana is below.
Bravo also released the official season trailer and it is nothing but drama! In the 2-minute trailer below, Taylor can be seen crying over and over and over, Lisa seems to ruffle Adrienne’s feathers as the two get into it (Adrienne accuses her of always stirring the pot), Camille and Kyle also get into it, and Taylor and Kyle fight as well. Cedric also makes an appearance when he crashes Lisa’s party.
However in the most dramatic scene, Brandi and Kim get into a very ugly argument that almost comes to blows. In the heated exchange, Brandi accuses Kim of using drugs! WHOA! Kim strikes right back by calling Brandi a “slut pig.” For some reason it appears Bravo has edited the current clip. In the original clip I viewed this morning, Brandi actually accuses Kim of snorting crystal meth in bathrooms. Ai ya ya.
Are you excited about the new season? The trailer is below!
Camille, 42, Kim, 46, and Brandi, 38, opted for some teeny bikinis, while Kyle and Lisa remained covered up. Missing from the trip are Taylor Armstrong and Adrienne Maloof. As reported, Brandi, while not getting along with most of the other cast members, has become good friends with Camille.

In other BH news, the NY Post is reporting that we will be getting a much different Camille Grammeron the upcoming season of the RHOBH than we did last year.
Sources reveal that Camille is much more “subdued” this season to the point that Bravo producers are finding her character — which provided a whole lot of the crazy entertainment in Season 1 — “really boring.” A source adds, “Producers have told Camille she has to start being more interesting and causing more drama.”
The Post speculates that Camille might have been ordered to keep her mouth shut on certain issues in her divorce settlement with ex-husband Kelsey Grammer. The same settlement that netted her a reported $50 million!
“Nobody knows what’s in that divorce settlement,” says a source close to the show. “But I would not be surprised if she could not discuss certain things. She’s checking what comes out of her mouth, and the producers are pushing for the cast to be as naughty and as full-on as possible.”
Another source speculates that Camille’s new act is because she doesn’t want to lose any access to her children. Her friends state that she’s simply refusing to act in a way on the show that could give Kelsey ammunition for a custody battle. A rep for Bravo denied to comment on the story.
As we reported last week, Kelsey has filed papers attempting to get full custody of his two kids with Camille who has vowed to fight to keep her kids.

According to the latest issue of the magazine, Taylor, 39, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, has finally left the icy Russell after 7 years of marriage. A source close to Taylor confirms the news to the mag.
“They’ve had huge marital problems related to finances,” the insider says of the couple, who were most recently seen together with daughter Kennedy, 5, at a May 7 Lollipop Theater Network event in California.
The news of a split doesn’t come as a surprise as their marital issues were well documented on the first season of the Bravo hit show which had Taylor comparing her marriage to a business arrangement. Plus reports came out months ago that the couple was undergoing marriage counseling.
The insider adds that the split has taken a physical toll on Taylor. “She’s emaciated — down 10, 15 pounds,” the source reveals. A report came out last month questioning if Taylor was anorexic after shocking new bikini photos of her came out showing a very skinny frame.
Meanwhile, the drama doesn’t end there for the RHOBH. While most of us assumed new housewife Brandi Glanville would be clashing with Lisa Vanderpump (Brandi’s good friends with Lisa’s former houseguest Cedric), it seems it is Kyle Richards who is clashing with Brandi on the show.
UsWeekly reports Brandi, 38 and Kyle, 42, have been “going at it” since filming began on season 2. “They got into a fight and Brandi lunged at Kyle,” reveals a source. “They had to be separated by producers.”
PEOPLE magazine is reporting that Brandi is “very happy” about joining the RHOBH and that “she really wanted to be on the show.” As for what we can expect on the second season, sources reveal Kim Richards is more assertive while sister Kyle has taken a more laid-back approach. Also, the entire cast has been more accepting of Camille Grammer, who clashed with Kyle on the first season.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR LEAVING RUSSELL? ARE YOU SURPRISED? PLUS THOUGHTS ON THE CLASH BETWEEN BRANDI AND KYLE?
UPDATE - Taylor’s rep is now denying the split to PEOPLE magazine. A source states that while “their relationship is not without trouble… they’re still together.” The source also denies any financial difficulties. Only time will tell if the original Us Weekly story is true as US tends to be a reliable media outlet.
