In a recent interview on Ryan Seacrest’s Kis-FM Radio Show, Camille, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, expressed her frustrations regarding the custody battle between her and ex-hubby Kelsey, both of whom have filed for full custody of their two children Mason, 9, and Jude, 6.
Camille stated, “It’s been a tough couple weeks.” Even more shocking are Camille’s allegations that Kelsey is only interested in obtaining full custody of their son, Jude, “Kelsey wants to split his two children with Camille — taking his son to live with him and his new wife in Chicago, and leaving his daughter to live with her mother in California.” Yikes! However while Kelsey did send a letter back in April about wanting to split up custody, he ended up filing for custody of both children in May.
Camille, however, would like full custody as well and her RHOBH co-star Kyle Richards agrees that’s how it should be, stating: “They belong with their mom. I’m with her on this.” Further proving that the Camille/Kyle feud that dominated last season is over, Kyle defended Camille against Kelsey in a video released by RumorFix, commenting: “I think he’s done enough damage, he needs to leave her alone now.”
Court papers filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court state the Camille feels Kelsey’s reasons for seeking full custody are an attempt to: “create a false impression to the media and to wrongfully disparage her.” Well, after last season’s RHOBH I’m not sure Kelsey has to stoop so low to encourage any character assignations! Andy Cohen already beat you to the punch, Frasier!
Despite all the recent issues, Camille remains hopeful that she and Kelsey can have an amicable relationship: “I’m really trying to reach out to him and I think it’s very important for us to be cordial to one another to raise our children properly. For me it’s all about our kids and what’s good for them and stability, to know that they’re loved. Hopefully we’ll work toward some kind of agreement on this.”
So what do you think? Do you think Kelsey is really only seeking full custody to ruin Camille’s reputation? Surprised Kyle is defending Camille?
Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Kim Richards and Adrienne Maloofput on their signature satin dresses at ‘The World According To Paris’ series premiere party held at the Tropicana Bar at The Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, California. But seriously, have these ladies ever met a satin dress they didn’t like?

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.

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.
UsWeekly is reporting that Brandi, jilted ex-wife of actor Eddie Cibrian who left her in 2009 for country singer LeAnnRimes, is still in talks with the Bravo network to join the hit franchise.
If you recall, reports came out months ago that Brandi was being considered to join the cast after she was photographed out and about with Lisa Vanderpump’s former pet house guest Cedric Martinez. That news however quickly died down after the second season of the RHOBH began filming weeks ago.
According to a source, the storyline of Brandi, a 38-year-old former model, would of course be about her issues with her ex Eddie, 37, and his new lady love/wife LeAnn, 28. “Wouldn’t you be upset with them?” asks a source close to the mom of sons Mason, 7, and Jake, 4.
Brandi is reportedly even more upset by the sudden nuptials of Eddie and LeAnn a little over a week ago, with the source adding that Brandi and her sons were not told in advance about the wedding. A source close to LeAnn however counters stating, “the boys were told about the wedding three days in advance.”
The Hollywoodlife confirms the UsWeekly story, stating that Brandi is signing on while adding that Playboy playmate Jessica Hall (the same gal caught kissingKendra Wilkinson) is also in talks to join the cast as well.
“Brandi has already started filming for ‘Real Housewives’,” a source close to the show reveals. “She hasn’t officially signed anything yet but she’s interacted with members of the cast on camera.” As for Jessica, she is said to be “negotiating her contract” with Bravo.
It’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with all the reported names in talks to join the cast. In addition to Brandi and Jessica, Faye Resnick, Jillian Barberie, Ayda Field,and Jeanie Buss have also been mentioned in the rumor mill. E! news reported a few weeks ago that the final spot for the new housewife came down to Faye and Ayda.
Plus filming on the second season began over a month and a half ago, so we can’t help but wonder if Bravo is planning to add more than one housewife to the show. Perhaps one of the six original BH ladies is leaving mid season. The addition of two new housewives would bring the cast to a total of 8 which seems to be a pretty large number for an already drama filled franchise.
In other news, Kyle Richards was photographed on Monday walking the streets of Beverly Hills with daughters Farrah Aldjufrie and Portia. And it seems Kyle and Farah were a bit busy with having their photos snapped by the paps as poor little Portia walked right into a pole. Thankfully, Portia was okay afterwards. Those pics are below.

Kim Richardsand Kyle Richardshave both spoken out about re-building their relationship in bits and pieces, but in a new interview with UsWeekly, Kim opens up about her feelings on the now infamous limo fight.
UsWeekly caught up with Kim, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, as she hosted the opening of the Azure Luxury Pool in Las Vegas with Kyle on April 10. The above photo was taken from the event.
“I still don’t know what Kyle was going to do to me in the back of the car — kill me, strangle me,” Kim, 46, tells US of the blow-up, during which Kyle accused her of being an alcoholic, while she screamed that Kyle stole her house.
“I just wanted you (Kim) to shut up,” Kyle, 42 explains of the incident. “You wanted me to shut up, but you were doing all the talking,” argued Kim before thinking better of it. “Won’t go there. If you hold on to the negative, it brings you down. It definitely took it’s toll on us.”
Kyle insists the experience has made them both stronger. “Kim and I went through a hard time last season, but I really do feel that even though we had that argument we’re in such a good place now,” she states. “Maybe some good came out of it. We both grew and learned from it.”
Kim is more reserved simply stating their relationship is a “work in progress,” adding they’re still putting the pieces back in place. More photos of Kim & Kyle hosting the event below.
In other BH news, Lisa Vanderpump attended the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Media Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night during which her beloved dog Giggy took a fall.
See Lisa decided to let the pampered Pomeranian stand on his own last night to disastrous results. Poor Gigster fell flat on his face after Lisa placed him down on the red carpet to bask in the spotlight. Lisa appeared horrified and quickly helped Giggy back up.
The Gigter was not hurt and enjoyed the rest of the night with his mistress. More photos of Lisa and Giggy at the GLAAD awards below.

This apparently led to some whispers and gossip by some of the Bravo housewives. A source overheard one star hiss, “It takes a village to raise a child,” citing the entourage around Padma’s dressing area playing with her 14-month-old daughter, Krishna.
A witness said, “They took all of the women’s bags that had been left in a dressing room and threw them into a hallway so Padma could sit separately with her baby in between shoots.”
Top Chef judge Gail Simmons however comes to Padma’s defense. “We didn’t know a lot of the women [who were there]. It’s not like we work together on a regular basis. I met a lot of people on the set for the first time,” said Gail. “It’s not like we’re holding hands and singing ‘Kumbaya.’”
Gail added, “I don’t think I spoke to most people, either. You are there to do a job. She [Padma] was with her child. I would think that anyone could understand that, and she’s still nursing, which is also not a public thing to do. What’s there to complain about? It’s not high school. We’re all professionals.” Millionaire Matchmaker star Patti added, “We all thought her baby was beautiful.”
A rep for Bravo tells the Post there were no designated dressing rooms. And Padma’s rep sniped, “I think this is a nonsensical item from a ‘Housewife’ who is jealous. It’s going to make Padma look bad, and it’s just not true . . . she didn’t get any special treatment.” Meow!
No word yet on how this article made it’s way to the Post though oddly enough one of the above names has a show debuting tonight on Bravo.
Months after their nasty limo fight during theReal Housewives of Beverly Hillsfinale, sisters Kim & Kyle Richards continue to pick up the pieces of their relationship. And in a new interview with PEOPLE, Kim is speaking out for the first time about Kyle since the airing of that episode.
“[It's] a day-by-day thing that we work on [because] what happened was extremely painful,” Kim, 46, told PEOPLE at Bravo’s upfront party in Los Angeles. “It’s not going to cure itself over night and hopefully we will grow past all that happened and move forward and get stronger and stronger.”
As for Kyle, she says she is now “very proud” of the dramatic fight. “I’m very proud. I can only say for myself, but I learned a lot about our relationship,” Kyle, 42, said. “I’ve learned a lot about myself and I feel like our relationship was strengthened maybe because of what happened.”
One of those lessons learned by Kyle includes taking a new approach when it comes to dealing with Kim. Kyle states she now wants to be more of a sibling than a parent. “When you lose your parents like we have, I turned to my sisters to parent me at times and I feel like at times I need to parent them,” Kyle said. “But it’s not my job and I have to love her, step back and say I’m not your mom.”
Meanwhile Kyle spoke to E! News in a different interview on Sunday night, during which she revealed she might not be returning to the RHOBH after all, despite the fact that the second season began filming weeks ago.
“The show has been picked up for a second season, but I’m not sure if I’m coming back yet,” Kyle told E! News. “We’re not really sure who’s coming back yet, so we’ll see,” she said. We’re going to call a negotiating ploy to get more money from Bravo on this as Teresa Giudicedid something similar last year as the 3rd season of the NJ Housewives began filming. Or perhaps Kyle is just playing coy as the cast of the show is not supposed to confirm who is returning to the press.
Whatever the case is, Kyle has been photographed filming for season 2 in recent weeks, so if she does decide to leave the show, it will likely be in the form of an early exit a la Dina Manzo on the NJ Housewives. And while Kyle’s BFF Faye Resnick has also been photographed filming for the second season, E! reports that Bravo has yet to make a final decision on who the new BH housewife will be. A recent report stated that the network intended on adding a new housewife to the current cast of six.
According to E!, the final spot has come down to two finalists – Faye and Ayda Field (wife of U.K. pop star Robbie Williams). “If I were to put money on it, I would say Ayda will be the new castmember,” a source tells E!.
So why has Faye been filming with the cast? “Faye is shooting for the show already because she is an actual friend of the cast,” explains the insider. “It is still unclear if Faye will remain a friend or become a central character on the show.”
