Kim was pictured smiling with both of her sisters – Kathy Hilton and Kyle Richards, as you can see above. The dinner outing at the Frida Mexican restaurant was to celebrate the 21st birthday of Kim’s daughter Whitney Davis.
Following the volatile finale episode of the Bravo show, during which Kyle accused Kim of being an alcoholic, Kim had pretty much stayed out of the spotlight, only making a brief appearance on E! News to wish her niece Paris a happy birthday.
There had been conflicting reports on the status of Kim and Kyle’s relationship with the latest report coming out last week stating Kim wanted nothing to do with Kyle. But with these latest photos, it seems the sisters can at least bear to be in the same room with one another.
Also present at the dinner were Paris Hilton, Nicky Hilton, Mauricio Umansky, plus Kim & Kyle’s daughters. More photos are below.
In other BH news, Lisa Vanderpump revealed to UsWeekly that her pocket-sized dog Giggy is ready to go Hollywood. According to Lisa, the Gigster has signed with a talent agency.
“It’s true,” said Lisa. “He’s with CAA.” The Creative Artists’ Agency represents A-listers such asJenniferAniston, SandraBullock, BradPitt, and JuliaRoberts as clients.
So what kind of gigs is Giggy hoping to get? “He can do charity; he is open to anything. The only thing he isn’t very good at is radio,” said Lisa.

According to the HollywoodLife, Faye has voiced her interest of wanting to become an official housewife to the show producers. “Faye has met with producers and there is a lot of interest from the show’s fans to have her on,” says a source close to the show. “I don’t have word yet on whether she has officially signed on, but I do know that she was being seriously considered.”
Faye’s addition to the cast would be especially interesting considering Camille will be returning to the show and the two butted heads during the now infamous dinner from hell. Faye is mostly known for close friends with Nicole Brown, and testifying against O.J. Simpson during his trial. Camille has accused Faye of capitalizing off Nicole’s murder trial by posing for Playboy and writing a book.
To add more fuel to the speculation, the above photo of Faye with BFF Kyle Richards and Taylor Armstrong, was taken Tuesday night for dinner at the BOA steakhouse in West Hollywood. There are some reports Bravo cameras were on hand to film the dinner for the second season of the hit show. Nice to see Kyle being very “friendly” to Taylor these days after claiming Bravo made their friendship out to “seem bigger” than it really was on the show.
As for the news of Faye possibly becoming a housewife, Bravo would only state, “We haven’t announced anything regarding season two yet.”
In other BH news, it seems Kyle is working towards getting her acting career back in gear. She tweeted Sunday night, “Last night shooting movie. So tired but happy to be here.”
More photos below of the ladies, as well as a pic of Mauricio and Kyle.

During the now infamous limo fight between the two sisters, Kyle physically threatened Kim as the two had some nasty words of exchange during which Kyle stated Kim was an “alcoholic.” Since that episode aired, the two have yet to be seen together in public. In fact, Kim’s only public appearance since came via a brief joint interview with sister Kathy Hiltonon the E! network, to wish Paris Hilton a happy birthday.
Many fans continue to wonder the status of the sisters’ relationship as there have been conflicting reports in the media since. And while Kyle stated a month ago that the two were in “a good place,” adding “the show has taught me to handle her in a different way,” the latest report by UsWeekly seems to dispute that.
According to UsWeekly, the sisters are definitely “not talking.” The reason? “Kim has had it with Kyle.”
The story goes on to confirm previous reports which stated all of the original BH housewives, including Kim, have signed on to return for a second season, though an insider adds that Kim, 46, was on the fence about returning. “Kim finally signed on but told Kyle she wants nothing to do with her next season,” reveals the insider.
The source also adds that on the next season, “Kim will face her alcohol problems on the show.”
While Kyle’s behavior on the show was bad enough, it’s likely Kim’s disdain also stems from the aftermath of the show. In the weeks following the airing of that volatile episode, there were numerous reports in the press that seemed to have been planted by ‘Team Kyle’ sources. Majority of these reports attempted to paint Kim in a very negative light, while pretty much attempting to do the exact opposite for Kyle.
As for the Bravo hit show, numerous reports state filming has already began on the second season.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST UPDATE OF KIM & KYLE?
Sean will be replacing Real Housewives of DC star Michaele Salahi, 45, who got kicked off the show for not having an addiction. Michaele’s husband Tareq Salahi has admitted his wife has no substance abuse issues but claims she needed treatment to deal with the stress of managing her multiple sclerosis which she claims to have had for over 20 years. Which makes us wonder, if she’s had the MS for 20+ years, why would she need Celebrity Rehab with dealing with it now?
As suspected, the MS story seems to be a crock with a source telling RadarOnline this week that Dr. Drew Pinsky ran a number of extensive neurological tests, which all came out negative for MS or any other neurological issues.
There was also a rumor floating around this week that professional famewhoreHeidi Montag would be joining the show, but that report is false.
And finally, the ABC network will be airing a 20/20 special tonight titled “The Phenomenon of Reality Television.” The special promises an in depth look at reality stars who are famous for being famous including the Bravo Housewives, while also examining those who are cashing in.
The special will examine why things often turn so nasty on the Bravo Housewives series. Part of the press release states “20/20 talks to Kyle Richards of the Beverley Hills show about the ugly showdown with her sister Kim, and to Michaele and Tareq Salahis (best known for gate crashing the White House), who say why they believe the other DC Housewives turned against them.”
As for Bethenny, her segment will be more on the cashing in part. She tells “20/20″ that being the focus her own show, “Bethenny Ever After,” has both its rewards and challenges. “Do I speak inappropriately? Absolutely. Is it at my own expense and no one else’s? Absolutely. I don’t need to rip anybody else. I rip myself more than anyone else,” reveals Bethenny.
The special airs at 10/9c. Feel free to discuss the latest news plus the 20/20 special below!
Following weeks of numerous rumors and reports, both the HollywoodLife and RadarOnline sites are now confirming that all of the Beverly Hills Housewives will be returning for a second season! And Yes, that includes both Kim Richards and Camille Grammer.
Sources tell both sites that it wasn’t easy getting Camille and Kim to return to the show.
“Camille was on the fence and really didn’t know if she wanted all her business exposed for a second time especially after her painful divorce,” sources tell RadarOnline. “She thought about it and re-thought about it before coming to the conclusion that she’d return for a second season.”
As for Kim, the HollywoodLife blog reports, “Kim and her sister Kyle obviously have a lot to work on, but they have both signed on as well.” A source also claims to Radar that Kim went to Bravo demanding more money for a second season, and wanted to be the highest paid castmember on the show due to the scrutiny she received on the show’s finale episode.
Meanwhile, another “source” tells the HollywoodLife that Taylor Armstrong was on the fence about returning to the show. “Taylor was hesitating because of the spotlight on her marriage which caused problems for her and her husband Russell, who is actually a genuinely good man,” reveals the source. “They actually have a pretty happy marriage but it wasn’t portrayed that way, but she wants another chance at showing how they really are in love with each other.” We’ll let you take a gander at who this source could be.
Whatever the case, all the ladies are signed on and Radar even reports filming has already started for Season 2!
“There is already drama brewing,” sources said. “Keep your eyes on this one. It’s going to be explosive.” No word on whether or not Bravo will be adding a new housewife to the show though it is expected they will.

“She was very upset,” Lisa told E! News adding that she spoke to Camille on Wednesday. “It’s public, it’s humiliating, and she’s very vulnerable. It’s very upsetting.” Lisa goes on to state that Camille “will always have a love there” for Kelsey, but that her friend is “definitely not” dating anyone new.
So should we expect Camille to return for a second season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? (The most recent report has her quitting the show) Lisa is uncertain. “I can’t say definitely, because it’s been tricky the past few weeks with a lot of feelings running high with what went down with Camille and her divorce,” explained Lisa. “My perception is that it worked so if it’s not broken why fix it? We would like it to stay the same but we’re still working it out.”
In other BH news, it seems Kyle Richards is now certain she wants to have more kids. “I would love to have 10 kids! But obviously I can’t, so I would love to have one more. We’ll see if it’s in the cards. If God’s going to grant my wish,” she revealed to RadarOnline
“Last night my husband did say to me ‘we need one more.’ So you never know,” added Kyle. “Some days I think you know I can handle this… life gets overwhelming but women, we’re multi-taskers. I think I can handle it.”
And finally, just weeks after revealing uncertainty about returning for a second season, it seemsTaylor Armstrong is more open to the idea now via a new interview with RadarOnline.
Taylor reveals there’s still more in store for the show: “I do think there are stories that are left to be told and the relationships are changing, some of our friendships are deepening and we’re getting to know each other better.” She adds, “Things are changing, our kids are getting older, our relationships are changing, our friendships, our marriages, our work lives, the changes that occur in life.”
UPDATE – The story was all set to be published, that is until a new report by E! news came out moments ago. According to the story, Camille is still planning to return to the show. So for the time being, we will stop with the Camille is/isn’t returning stories until an official announcement from either Camille or Bravo. The E! story also adds that Camille is “dating again and getting on with her life,” a contradiction to what Lisa stated above.

RadarOnline was able to get exclusive access and photos to the birthday party, and those photos are below. “Portia is obsessed with being a princess,” gushed Kyle to RadarOnline. “And I don’t know where she got it because I was a tomboy,” she added with a laugh.
“She’s like her mom. She likes sparkles and sequins!” boasted Kyle. Radar reports it was a family affair with Mauricio, and Portia’s older sisters Farrah, 22, Alexia, 14, and Sophia, 11.
Also in attendance were Kathy Hilton, Nicky Hilton, actress Ali Landry and even fellow housewife Taylor Armstrong, who brought along her 5-year-old daughter Kennedy.
“I adore Portia. She’s the cutest little girl,” Taylor told Radar. “My daughter Kennedy loves mothering Portia because she’s a couple years older so she thinks it’s really fun to be around the smaller children and get to be the big sister for the day.” We’re guessing Taylor has yet to read this interview by Kyle.
Following the party, Taylor even took to her twitter page, sending the following tweet to Kyle on Monday night. “Kennedy and I had a blast with Portia and @KyleRichards18 today. Xo girls.” Kyle has yet to reply to the tweet, perhaps she just missed it in her timeline.
Kathy also spoke to Radar, stating –“I’m the auntie so all my nieces are like my kids. Our family is like that.”
Kyle added, “My whole family and friends are here so we’re having a lot of fun.” Seemingly missing from the party? Kim Richards as there was no mention of her in the article nor was she in any of the photos. Kim has however made one public appearance since the whole finale episode debacle. She appeared on E! News two weeks ago in an interview with sister Kathy, during which they both wished Paris Hilton a happy 30th birthday. She looked to be in good spirits.
That E! news footage doesn’t appear to be online as of yet. Also, the paps caught up with Kathy on Feb. 14 during which she commented on the Kim and Kyle situation. Kathy said they were raised as three girls, they are family and that loyalty is most important. She also said they will get beyond all of the conflict, adding that TV is TV, but she does not want a TV show to come between her family. Interesting use of the word loyalty there.
And now back to Taylor and Nene as the two apparently went out for drinks on Monday night during Nene’s current visit to LA.
Taylor tweeted that she had “lots of laughs” with Nene, who then tweeted a photo of the two ladies together with the caption – “Drinks last nite n LA wit Beverly Hills wife @Tayloratweets now it’s time 4 my business swag then hookup wit @KyleRichards18.” Like three two peas in a pod. That photo is below.

The ceremony took place Friday afternoon at the Longacre Theater in New York City, where Kelsey recently starred in the Tony-winning revival of the musical La Cage aux Folles.
“Kelsey Grammer and Kayte Walsh were married today at a private ceremony for family and friends,” his rep said in a statement yesterday. The guests at the wedding included Kelsey’s grown daughter, actress Spencer Grammer, who read a poem, Kayte’s brother, who sang a song, and Kelsey’s 5-year-old son Jude (son with Camille). Kelsey and Camille’s daughter Mason, 8, reportedly didn’t attend the bash due to a talent show.
Following the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests headed to the reception at the Plaza Hotel where they dined on a four-course dinner menu which accommodated the vegetarian bride and also included king oyster mushroom carpaccio, wild mushroom risotto, grilled filet mignon with blue potato gratin and bittersweet chocolate tart. The price? A mere $400 a plate. Wedding photos of Kelsey and Kate below.
It’s “bittersweet,” said Camille. “Kelsey and I spent 14 years together and built a great life for ourselves. We have two children, and they mean the world to me.”
“I do wish him well and I’ll miss him,” Camille added. “We spent many great years together and we’ve been through a lot. But at the end of the day, he’s made his decision and I’ll be fine. I’ve got a great support group, real and true friends and I’m moving forward with my life. I was sad and wanted to make things work but I’m completely fine now. I’m moving on.”
