Happy birthday Portia! What does one get for the four-year-old who has everything? Perhaps a little drama, RHOBH style!
Radaronline.com is reporting that while Kyle Richards’ daughter was getting into her birthday cake, the always messy Taylor Armstrong was getting into the vino. Big time. A guest of the shindig tells the site, “It’s extremely worrying that Taylor would get blitzed at a birthday party for a four-year-old little girl. She doesn’t weigh a lot and doesn’t seem to have a high threshold for alcohol, it didn’t take long for her to be wasted. Taylor was drinking white wine and it was truly sad to see — she was slurring her words and she got very emotional the more she had to drink. Taylor didn’t drive, thank God, she had a driver for the evening, but she clearly is in a great deal of distress right now and she desperately needs help.”
Oh Lisa, Lisa, Lisa…have you learned nothing from Jill Zarin and Teresa Giudice? Getting too big for your Chanel baubles leads to nothing but co-star–and fan!–backlash. RadarOnline is reporting that Lisa Vanderpump has gotten a tad cocky in light of her recent spin-off. A source tells the site, “There are a lot of bad feelings because Lisa got her own show and Taylor [Armstrong] for one thinks that Lisa has been acting like a diva during filming. Taylor and Lisa had gotten close after Russell’s suicide last year, but Taylor now feels like that was all done for the cameras.”
“The Housewives are jealous that Lisa got so much attention at the recent up fronts in New York City,” the insider goes on to say. However, “Lisa does have one very vocal supporter among the cast though, Brandi Glanville. Brandi thinks it’s fantastic that Lisa got her own show and of course, she wants to appear on that show as well.” No shocker there!
Well, it seems the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are officially back! Reports that the ladies have started filming have been confirmed by actual sightings of the taping in action. In fact, WetPaint reports that the cast will be doing its first group filming at Lisa Vanderpump‘s restaurant Villa Blanca. And everyone will be in tow – even Brandi Glanville, whose name has been conspicuously absent from reports about who is in and who is out!
“All the major players will be there,” a show insider discloses. “It’ll be the first time they film together as a group for the new season.” Apparently, cast drama is still running strong and the ladies have yet to come together and sort through last season’s grievances.
“The women aren’t friends in real life so when they get back together they just continue bickering about everything that they were mad about last season,” a source reveals to RadarOnline. “This year the Housewives are still fuming about all their old slights, barbs and insults and they’re not about to let anything go in front of the cameras this time around.”
And reported new housewife, Yolanda Hadid is already causing drama amongst the cast! Apparently, she and Lisa will have some issues over “some past legal wrangles that have gone on,” the source adds. “As always, the women are going to be asked to pick sides and of course there will be lots of fighting once the tension starts building.”
Another strain, is Kim Richards, who producers expect to be really on point this season following last year’s disastrous appearance. Allegedly, the cast is worried about Kim managing her sobriety with the stress of filming – and dealing with the constant unrest amongst her co-tarts!
Well – that sounds exciting. I can’t wait to watch more of the same thing. Yet another reason Bravo needs to recast after a couple of seasons!
ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON OR ALREADY OVER IT? WILL YOLANDA BE A GOOD FIT AMONGST THE LADIES?
In your daily dose of Housewives news, we can report that there’s a new and super-wealthy lady joining the cast of RHOBH.
Radaronline.com is reporting that Yolanda Hadid, Dutch model and fourth wife of award-winning music producer David Foster, has officially joined the lavish cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It seems, as well, that Yolanda has an automatic “in” as she’s known Lisa Vanderpump for years. And we all saw how well a long friendship played out for Lisa and Adrienne Maloof!
A source reveals, “What most people don’t realize is that Yolanda was married to Lisa’s very good friend, Mohamed Hadid. Mohamed has appeared several times on the show, including during the last season when he threw an over the top engagement party for Lisa’s daughter, Pandora. Yolanda is going to make an excellent addition to the cast and she can definitely hold her ground if the claws come out; she is no shrinking violet.” I wonder if there will be any scenes with Yolanda, Mohamed, and Mo’s robot teen girlfriend. I’d certainly tune in for that!
The new season, which presumably premieres this fall, will be missing original cast member Camille Grammer, who, sources say, refused to be filmed with her boyfriend for a story line. Relegated to special appearances, producers need to vamp up the cast in light of Camille’s absence.
Well, it’s official! With no definite cast announcement, filming for the third season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has begun! And apparently, viewers can expect some pretty drastic changes this season!
“Filming began last week on the third season with Kyle Richards,” a source close to the show reveals to RadarOnline. “She has a lot going on in her life right now, including helping her sister and fellow cast member, Kim Richards, navigate the sometimes rocky road of sobriety.” But viewers shouldn’t expect another dreary season of Kim’s drunken antics – this is a whole new RHOBH!
“Kim’s sobriety and recovery are going to be a focal point of her story line. The ladies haven’t all filmed together yet but are expected to begin that next week. Kyle has been lamenting that she is really going to miss Camille [Grammer] because she added much needed class to the show.” Well, that’s a change from the first season when rumors abounded that she lobbied to get ol’ Cammie fired!
As for Taylor Armstrong, she’ll be back but reportedly not for long! “The ladies are also extremely concerned about Taylor’s drinking problem,” the insider reveals. “It has really gotten out of control and they all believe she is an alcoholic in need of help.”
“Taylor needs to go to rehab and the producers have talked to Kyle and Kim about how best to approach her drinking problem, because Kim’s battle with the bottle was documented on the air,” the insider continues. “There has been talk of doing an on-camera intervention for Taylor.”
However, don’t expect another season of Taylor’s issues to overtake the storyline. After last seasons extremely depressing focus, producers want to get away from the negativity and move towards the BH viewers want to see!
“Producers also want to lighten things up for the upcoming season. There was so much sadness in the last season because of the suicide and Kim’s drinking problem. Viewers want to live vicariously through the ladies and not see so much doom and gloom.”
And speaking of Taylor, despite reports that she is freaking out about losing her job on RHOBH, Loony Lips expressed no such concern on a recent radio interview with The Kyle and Jackie O Show.
“I think there’s so much speculation, I hear things all the time about my life that are completely untrue … I read so many crazy things … [it] definitely has not been decided, they haven’t announced or determined the cast … but that certainly didn’t come to me from Bravo, I heard it in the press.”
THOUGHTS – DO YOU BELIEVE THE THIRD SEASON WILL BE MORE UPBEAT?

Despite the continued scrutiny about who’s in and who’s out concerning the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, apparently, the ladies have returned to work and started filming season three. Didn’t season two just end yesterday?
No word on Brandi Glanville‘s prospective status, although, rumors have circulated that Kim and Kyle refused to sign on if Brandi was included in the cast (cause they’re like so mature like that); which led to Lisa seriously reconsidering her involvement in the show.
As for what viewers can expect this season–lots more of Kim and Kyle’s nonsense to be sure! And continued tension between Lisa and Adrienne. We’ll also see Adrienne expanding her Maloof Hoof shoe line. Which is funny, because the gorgeous specimens were recently spotted on clearance! Guess nobody likes a fat, cheap-looking little knock-off!
Additionally, things will be a lot more upbeat and fun this season. “Last year, things with Taylor were very intense and got very dark,” the source continues . “I think everyone wants to see the show wants to get away from that so Taylor can continue recovering from the tragedy and focus on raising her daughter.”
One thing is certain, the drama will be complemented by glamour, wealth, and chaos! “At the end of the day, the reason this is one of the most successful of the Bravo franchises is because these women are fabulous and they know how to really bring the drama. That’s not going to change one bit.”
And now onto the Taylor subject. According to Wetpaint, Loony Lips is, indeed, returning to the series and her focus will be milking her fifteen minutes for all it’s worth recovery. However, RadarOnline is now reporting that the infamous Ms. Armstrong’s days with Bravo are indeed numbered!
