Perhaps Bravo was wrong not to make Dana Wilkey an official housewife on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after all!

According to a new report by TMZ, Dana would have made a perfect Bravo housewife as she is now being sued for fraud alongside her fiancé John Flynn, who is described as an “entrepreneur.”

In the lawsuit filed at the L.A. Superior Court this week, Mary Painter alleges Dana and John defrauded her out of $53,000. Mary claims she invested the money in 2008 with the couple and another man… she claimed would get at least a 10% return on their investment.

Mary adds that she tried to get her money out a number of times over the past two years to no avail. TMZ adds that it’s unclear what exactly Mary was investing in. She is also suing for breach of contract and fraudulent misrepresentation as well as asking for her money back plus damages.

Dana’s fiancé spoke to TMZ stating: “There is no fraud. Dana Wilkey is not a properly named defendant, and we expect to continue to negotiate and gain dismissal of this lawsuit as quick as possible.”

Dana also took to her Twitter page to defend herself. She wrote today, “Its a frivolous lawsuit. It will be dismissed. I didn’t even know about it until I TMZ.” She later added, “I’m not involved. I haven’t even met or spoken to the women.”

In other RHOBH news, Thefix.com (a blog about addiction and recovery) is breaking down Kim Richards’ mix of medications. During last week’s episode, Kim revealed her medications to Adrienne Maloof’s husband Dr. Paul Nassif, who then revealed the mix of prescription drugs likely to blame for Kim’s odd behavior this season.

The Fix blog went a step further specifically listing what exactly each drug Kim is taking does to the body and mind. The blog reveals that Kim’s drug mix is a “recipe for confusion.” While Lexapro — one of the drugs Kim is on — is said to be side-effect-free (below is the break down of the two remaining drugs):

Trazodone – “A tetracyclic antidepressant that’s often given to recovering alcoholics and addicts for its strong soporific quality—useful for insomniacs who’ve relied on narcotic-based sedatives—but its side-effects include confusion and difficulty concentrating or remembering things.”

Topamax - “Is an epilepsy drug and mood stabilizer that’s been used experimentally to treat alcoholism and migraine disorders. It, too, carries some crazy risks: users call it “Dopamax” or “Stupamax” because of side-effects like feeling disoriented and confused, or the inability to remember words or speak in complete sentences.”

Kim’s sister Kyle Richards also blogged this week, citing she feels vindicated that the world can now see prescription drugs are to blame for Kim’s behavior this season and not illegal drugs or alcohol. Below is an excerpt from Kyle’s Bravo blog -

“I am happy they showed Kim discussing with Paul the medication’s she has been taking. I think that clears things up for some people. I didn’t know exactly what she was taking, but I knew that the doctors had put her on something and I saw a difference in here — and not always for the best. That is why I got so upset with Brandi for making that comment about Kim and crystal meth. I knew because she said that on camera millions of people would see that. I know from experience, once something is said on camera, true or false, it follows you forever. My sister Kim has struggled enough with her issues. I didn’t want that to set her back. She is a strong girl but fragile at the same time. I told Kim after her visit with Paul that she had to talk to her doctor’s and get that sorted out. Paul didn’t feel she was on the right medication for her anxiety and didn’t think it was the right combination of meds.”

Moving on to tonight’s new episode of the RHOBH! On the 11th episode this season titled “Tempest in a Tea Party,” Lisa’s stately tea party is at a high boil when Taylor’s true feelings about Lisa bubble to the surface and marital issues are addressed. This is the episode that has been highly promoted by Bravo during which Camille will reveal the claims of Russell Armstrong physically abusing Taylor.

The new episode airs at 9/8c and the preview clip is below.

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills dealt with both the past and future as Kyle hosted a séance, the ladies got their faces touched up and reapplied, and Kim finally confessed that she is moving in with her secret boyfriend, Ken much to Kyle’s shock!

Dr. Paul hosts a Night of Beauty at his plastic surgery office. Kyle wants to do a little laser muffin top removal. Kyle is excited, yet nervous about being subjected to the chub-munching octopus, but threatens to move into Paul’s office if it works. Paul tells her to relax and then the torture of lying there while some little red swirls dance across her mythical fat roll begins.

Lisa is wandering through the labyrinth of Botox and laser treatments looking for Kyle when she stumbles across Taylor. Taylor has snacks and is waiting with some sort of weird numbing goop smeared all over her face as she is prepping to get some new fillers in her cheeks. Lisa advises her to skip the procedures and go straight for the food, which is untouched. Taylor informs us that she has a “genetically thin face” and no matter how much she eats she always looks like Skeletor.

According to a not so shocking report by Star magazine, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards has fallen off the wagon.

In light of Kim’s recent odd behavior on the Bravo hit show, sources say she is back to drinking heavily as the mag reveals those close to her even staged a mini intervention on Oct. 24.

If you recall, Kim’s sister Kyle Richards had some harsh words for Kim, 47, during last season’s volatile finale. “You’re an alcoholic! Yes that’s right. I’ve said it now and everybody knows,” said Kyle to Kim during their fight in the limo.

Star states that after hearing her sister’s harsh words last year, Kim actually checked herself into rehab. Fast forward to today and unfortunately for Kim, her drinking issues have reportedly taken a turn for the worst.

“Kim drinks daily and doesn’t recognize she has a serious problem,” a source reveals. “Kim fell down in her kitchen on Oct. 22, holding a glass of wine in her hand when she went down.”

Star reports that Kim — red-eyed and reeking of booze — however assured her friends all was well and that she was simply suffering from a little dehydration. “We were all concerned,” the insider adds.

Even worse, some of Kim’s friends suspect she is doing a little more than just boozing. “I suspect Kim is on prescription meds,” the source reveals. “She’s always popping white pills of some sort, so who knows what she’s on.” TMZ posted a clip of Kim last year, in which she was popping pills at an airport.

During the staged intervention on Oct. 24, Kim was reportedly reluctant to listen to her friends’ concerns. “When I questioned her about her alcohol use, she told me, ‘I’m not an alcoholic. I’m just a serious social drinker,’” reveals one of Kim’s pals who was a part of the failed intervention.

As for Kim, she has yet to comment on this latest report by Star though she did break her silence a week ago revealing that while she has had past issues with alcohol, all is well with her today. As for her behavior on the show, which included frequent bathroom visits during the infamous ‘game night from hell,’ Kim stated it was result of new meds given to her for her anxiety issues.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills most notorious houseguest Cedric Martinez refuses to give up the limelight or let go of Lisa Vanderpump’s coattails! Speaking exclusively to Wetpaint Entertainment, Cedric accuses Lisa and her husband Ken Tood of inflicting major damage to his life!

“Ken stabbed me in the back and Lisa twisted the knife, but they didn’t kill me,” he laments. “It was a rough year, but I’ve landed on my feet.” And things are going well for the former moocher – he now has a job he loves, his own place, and a tell-all memoir in the works.

I wonder if that tell-all will include tidbits about the Vanderpump-Todd family? After all during the Season 1 reunion, Lisa revealed they were forced to get the police involved following Cedric’s ejection from their mansion and Kyle Richards let it slip that the couple filed a restraining order against Cedric!

Well, restraining order or not, Cedric is not hesitating to speak out on the couple who housed him and treated him as one of their family and Cedric insists that Lisa was buddy-buddy with the tabloid media and gave them negative stories about him and other cast members! “There’s no question about it. I’ve known Lisa has Us Weekly on speed dial since she sold out my relationship with Lance Bass,” Cedric declares. Um… what relationship with Lance Bass – did I miss something?

He also claims that Lisa is “absolutely” the person who fed the media information about Taylor’s marital issues, which is a storyline included in this season!

Cedric is also responding to friend Brandi Glanville‘s accusations that Kim Richards is an addict! “Anyone watching this season knows drinking is the least of her problems,” Cedric asserts. “I hope and pray she gets the help she so desperately needs.”

Well, Lisa has no comment – yet – about Cedric’s latest claims! But he will definitely be making an appearance later this season!

In other RHOBH news, unofficial Housewives Brandi and Dana Wilkey are giving their two cents on what it was like participating in a reality show!

As for adapting to life on TV, Brandi to confesses to the Huffington Post there were certainly some “low points” for all the cast members through the course of the show and she faults a lot of the erratic and unflattering behavior to long hours of filming mixed with lots of alcohol and little food!

Brandi also spoke out about LeAnn Rimes, the woman who first stole her husband and is now stealing her style! Brandi calls the alleged imitations “irritating.”

Since dating and subsequently marrying Eddie Cibiran, LeAnn has undergone a drastic weight loss, gotten breast implants, and started mimicking some of Brandi’s Twitter pics with those of her own (I’m sure you all remember the identical bikini poses!). LeAnn has even faced criticism for her weightloss from E! host Giuliana Rancic!

Well Brandi, who definitely isn’t one to hold her tongue, feels that LeAnne should give it up as being Brandi certainly wasn’t enough to sustain her marriage! “It obviously didn’t keep my ex-husband with me,” Brandi explains. “It didn’t work.”

“Oh, it’s irritating, yeah,” Brandi reveals. “[But] the kids love her. I’m happy that they love her,” she relents, taking the high road and admitting LeAnn is a good step-mom.

Dana also talked about how friend and co-star Taylor Armstrong is coping in response to the recent tragedy in her life. Dana admits: “She’s rebuilding. [She] will never be the same person again.”

She also confronts the rumor that Taylor may be dating Most Eligible Dallas star Matt Nordgren after numerous reports have spotted them together. “They’re just ‘silly stories,’” Dana insists!

A new episode of RHOBH airs tonight! The ninth episode titled ‘Otherwise Engaged’ Mohammed throws Pandora an over the top circus-themed engagement party, featuring camels, circus performers and snakes. But no Kim! Kim is a no-show since she is hiding her boyfriend, who according to IMDB, she has been dating for two-years! And Kyle has a tense dinner with Taylor and Russell who threaten legal action against Lisa for supposedly planting stories about them in the tabloids!

The new episode airs on Bravo at 9/8c and a preview clip is below! On tonight’s WWHL Halloween Spectacular the guests are Chris March, Gail Simmons, and Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida. I so can’t wait!

THOUGHTS ON CEDRICS ACCUSATIONS ABOUT LISA AND KEN? DO YOU THINK LEANN IS COPYING BRANDI? ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT TONIGHT’S EPISODE?

Well, I guess we can now say “it” has been brought. During the game night from hell on last week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, new girl Brandi Glanville challenged Kim Richards to “Bring it, b!thch!” after feeling the wrath of the Richards sisters. While Brandi apologized to Kyle Richards in the following episode at an awkward spa day, Kim wanted nothing to do with the piranha named Brandi.

Kyle has since done damage control spoken out about the women’s behavior, but her sister Kim has remained relatively mum (save a tweet or two)…until now. In a blog on her twitter page, Kim addresses the fight, her actions, and that pesky little crystal meth accusation.

Kim begins, “Let me first start off by apologizing for the delay in my blogs. It has taken me some time to come to grips with certain events that have unfolded on the show. One event in particular is the situation that occurred on Game Night at Pam’s aka Dana’s (haha) That night was the first time I had ever met Brandi.”

She maintains, “For someone who doesn’t know me personally to outright accuse me of using crystal meth leaves me bewildered. Not only did she accuse me of using crystal meth, she accused me of using crystal meth on national television. Drug abuse isn’t something you just throw around as a jab. When Brandi uttered those words on camera, the only thing I could think of was ‘where the hell did that come from?’”

As you recall, it was Kim’s odd behavior and multiple bathroom trips that prompted the outburst while the three women were fighting. Kim is adamant that it wasn’t drug abuse but anxiety medication that is to blame for her very loopy demeanor.

She explains, “I told the others that night, that I had just left my doctors for treatment of my anxiety and panic disorder. I have suffered from this for many years. They knew he had given me medication for it. I found myself groggy, as this was a medication I had never taken before. That is why I was carrying my coffee with me. I should have gone home to lay down. Instead I went to shoot RHOBH. My doctors have been trying to determine which medication is right for me.” Perhaps she took this same medication while Adrienne and Paul were waiting on her to fly with them to the Kings game?

Kim takes a little responsibility for instigating the incident, admitting, “I know I was no angel that night. I am embarrassed that I fed into the negativity. I didn’t like the way I acted and that is not my character. When I said ‘I don’t want her on my team’ I was just joking with my sister. We have our own sibling banter and we get each other’s jokes. That’s my humor. It’s my fault for not making it obvious to Brandi that I was joking and for that I apologize.”

Kim alludes that Brandi’s excuse for her meltdown is more than a tad hypocritical. “By Brandi throwing out that accusation, it not only hurt me and my reputation, but hurt my children. Brandi was so concerned saying ‘don’t talk about my children’ But did she think for one moment about MY children when she carelessly threw those words out?” Kim makes a pretty valid point there.

She continues, “My kids have been devastated by her cruel words. My children and their friends and families watch this show as well. I can say that I am not embarrassed or apologetic for coming to my sister’s defense. I love my sister with all my heart no matter what ups and downs we go through. She always has my back and I will forever have hers.”

Kim doesn’t deny a past history of substance abuse. She says, “I’ll be the first to admit that I have struggled in the past with certain vices; but I have never in my life, EVER, used crystal meth. I have discussed openly my issues with alcohol. As many of you know, sobriety is a lifetime process, a process that is a priority in my life right now. I am grateful for the love and support of my children, family and dear friends.”

She ends the entry thanking her friends, family, and fans for the outpouring of support she has received since that uncomfortable to watch scene. Admittedly that accusation was ridiculous. Yes, Kim was acting wacky very odd, but crystal meth? This is, after all, Beverly Hills.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KIM’S RESPONSE? DID SHE TAKE ENOUGH RESPONSIBILITY FOR HER PART IN THE ALTERCATION? ARE YOU TEAM BRANDI OR TEAM KIM?

After weeks of rumors and speculation, Bravo will indeed air scenes featuring the deceased Russell Armstrong on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

The network went about confirming the news in a rather FYI fashion as it simply showed Russell in a preview clip for next week’s episode instead of putting out a press release to announce its decision.

In the clip (posted below), which will air on Monday night, Russell can be seen having dinner with his wife Taylor Armstrong and her friend Kyle Richards, as he openly talks about suing co-star Lisa Vanderpump for talking about him to a magazine.

“So did you read the big story today?” asks Russell as he passes a magazine article across the dinner table. “They link it to Lisa. We’ll just serve them with a lawsuit,” he continues as Kyle looks on in surprise. “This is very awkward,” Kyle later states in a separate on-camera interview. “Am I next?” she asks.

Russell’s first appearance on the show this season will be on the 9th episode. The Bravo network had made certain to edit him out of the first eight episodes of the season despite the fact that the early season previews played up the Armstrongs’ marital issues as a major season storyline. Bravo however made drastic edits to the show following Russell’s suicide in August. He had blamed the show for ruining his life and marriage.

So far, there hasn’t been any major backlash against Bravo over its decision to air Russell’s scenes. Kyle and Adrienne Maloof also spoke out on Bravo’s decision.

“I think it will be uncomfortable, a little bit,” says Kyle to Wetpaint. “But it was part of the story that was going on. This was shot six months before any of that happened. But it will probably be difficult [to watch].”

Adrienne added that seeing Russell on the show will definitely reopen some old wounds. “I think to see Russell in upcoming episodes will be a little tough. Overall, the suicide has been so horrific on all of us,” says Adrienne. “But I think it puts a face behind what has happened.”

My Thoughts – I say this is a good decision on Bravo’s part. The reason? Quite frankly Russell agreed to do the show not once, but twice by choosing to return for a second season despite publicly stating he did not like the “edit” he received in season 1. Though it is unknown whether or not he was contractually obligated to return to the show, it is highly unlikely as the housewives are usually the ones who sign contracts with Bravo, and not the husbands. Case in point – Jim Bellino’s decision to stop filming during the 6th season of the Real Housewives of OC. Plus I do not believe Bravo is to blame for Russell’s suicide in any way, shape, or form. And neither is Taylor. In fact, Russell’s lawyer has publicly stated on more than one occasion that Russell took his own life due to mounting financial difficulties. At the end of the day, Russell’s suicide, as unfortunate as it is, is reality. Reality that should not be altered on a reality show due to this unfortunate tragedy.

Yes he is no longer here to defend himself against any negative portrayal by Bravo but once again, he signed up to do the show and was not forced by Bravo. And the below comment made by Russell in one of his last interviews before his suicide leads me to believe he knew what he was doing, and had his own motives and reasons for doing RHOBH.

Russell told The Fix this summer about appearing on the Bravo hit show: “At first I was a little annoyed about all the bullsh*t, but then I realized it’s not so bad to be a celebrity. The thing is, all the publicity has been great for my business.”

Abuse Issue – This also makes way for Bravo to touch on the whole domestic abuse issue. While many fans of the show doubt Taylor’s claims of physical abuse, I for one do not. For starters, two of Russell’s exes (an ex-wife and ex-girlfriend) have stated in court documents, way before Russell even married Taylor, that he also physically abused them. PLUS Russell himself admitted to getting physical with his wife, telling PEOPLE in July that he “pushed” her. The last time I checked, pushing is physical abuse. Now I absolutely do get the skepticism, ahem… when you take Taylor’s sketchy past into consideration, but no matter how sketchy Taylor is, it doesn’t mean she was immune to being physically abused by her husband. I believe she was abused and I believe the abuse photos are real. I also believe that it is important for Bravo to tell this story if it can at least save the life of one battered woman.

Below is a preview clip featuring Russell on the upcoming episode via Toofab.com -
