Taylor Armstrong is heading out on the road for a national speaking tour, according to a new press release. If any groups are willing to pay her to share her story, of course. The talks will focus solely on her book “Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss & Finding the Courage Within”. From the release:
“In this captivating talk, Taylor Armstrong relates the deeply personal story of how she found herself in a relationship of inequality, her struggle with both deep love and fear of her husband, and how she summoned the courage from within to finally leave him. In her characteristic witty, lighthearted manner, Armstrong also shares illuminating—and even humorous—anecdotes, both about life (good and bad) with her husband, as well as her experiences as a cast member on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, where she often found herself battling with friends who struggled to understand the extent of her abuse.”
In other publishing news, just one month after Brandi Glanville announced that she’d be releasing a book that will dish on her life post-divorce, guess who has ALSO decided to write a book of her “own”? LeAnn Rimes, of course. In what *could* be a case of poor timing, the country singer shared this week that she’s planning to pen the story behind her relationship with Eddie Cibrian and a general biography of sorts.
LeAnn reportedly wants to tell her “honest” side of the story of what happened. Doesn’t she already do that daily on Twitter?
No, hell has yet to freeze over, and yes that is a photo of Brandi Glanville looking rather chummy with her ex-husband’s former mistress wife, singer LeAnn Rimes!
To bring you up to date, once upon a time, Brandi, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, was happily married to actor Eddie Cibrian, that is until Eddie went off to shoot a movie with LeAnn, during which the two began to have an affair! Brandi forgave Eddie and tried to make her marriage work, but couldn’t as Eddie and LeAnn continued to see each other.
Fast forward to today, Eddie and LeAnn are now man and wife, while Brandi is a single mom to her two sons with Eddie. Things had gotten pretty ugly with Brandi & LeAnn, with Brandi, rightfully, slamming LeAnn at every opportunity in the press. Which now makes these latest set of photos, all the more shocking.
The photos were snapped on Sunday during the soccer game of Brandi and Eddie’s son, Jake. Brandi and LeAnn shared laughs while sitting on a blanket in the grass, and were also pictured walking together. Eddie was also present at the game, and kept it classy as always when he later displayed some PDA with LeAnn. More photos of the trio below!
Must say, kudos to Brandi for being able to get over the anger and trying to get along with LeAnn for the sake of her kids. Don’t know if I would be able to do the same if I were in her shoes, but kudos to Brandi for putting her kids first.
Moving on to Lisa Vanderpump, who might be getting her own Bravo spinoff after all!
Just a month after a report came out stating that Bravo had decided not to pick up her show, which she had already filmed a pilot for. Huffington Post writer Rob Shuter just tweeted moments ago that it has now been picked up by Bravo. Rob wrote, “Congrats to @LisaVanderpump her spin off Bravo show has been picked up several insiders tell me.”
According to reports, the spinoff show will focus on the ins and outs of one of her restaurants, following the chaos surrounding the restaurant and the lives of both Lisa and her staff.
The timing of this report is interesting, as Lisa, age 56, recently revealed that her hubby Ken Todd does not want her to return to the RHOBH. In a recent interview with KTLA, Lisa made the surprising revelation.
“I don’t know really ,” said Lisa when asked about a Season three return. “My husband’s not as in to it as he was because for some reason I’ve managed to fool him for the last 30 years in to thinking I’m perfect and he hates to see me criticized.”
Even worse, Lisa also shares Ken’s sentiments following the nasty season two reunion. “After the reunion, I felt blindsided and I went out of town for a week because I really did feel devastated and it wasn’t just the accusations it was the silence of my friends that’s what was really hurtful,” said Lisa.
Safe to assume if Lisa’s spinoff does well, she is a goner on the RHOBH! However, it’s highly unlikely her show will air before the next season of the RHOBH begins to film, as Bravo began filming last season during Spring.

In case you don’t remember, Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant. Since making the announcement just days after Kim Kardashian filed for divorce, Kourtney has been pretty mum on what’s going on with her uterus. I just assumed she was happily baking a new little Disick and there was nothing much to get worked up over – which is a nice change for the Kardashians.
Well, a new report from In Touch Weekly (available via their print edition) is claiming that there is major trouble in paradise between Kourtney and long-time beau and baby daddy,Scott Disick!
Viewers of the ever-annoying Kourtney and Kim Take New York witnessed Scott and Kourtney have a whole host of relationship problems, which they both claimed to have worked through. Nevertheless, it was surprising when shortly after filming ended, Kourtney announced her pregnancy. Perhaps they moved too fast!
Apparently, Scott has been picking on Kourtney and calling her fat as of late. During a recent dinner date, Scott’s taunting nearly left Kourtney in tears! “Scott was picking on her, making fun of her weight,” reveals an insider. “He even told the waiter that she would have ‘a side of beef.’” Even worse, Scott has taken to calling her “Portney”, as a way to describe her new supposedly portly figure. Scott’s comments and constant teasing have left Kourtney feeling insecure and unattractive.
According to insiders, Kourtney has come to expect this kind of behavior from Scott, who has been downright rude and unsupportive throughout her second pregnancy. Kourtney had believed having a second child would make Scott grow up and would reinforce their relationship, but sadly it’s made things worse! Scott has returned to his pre-Mason partyboy ways and is now spending countless nights out at the bars with this friends, flirting with other girls.
After a recent fight with Kourtney, Scott ditched his family for a wild time in Vegas at the opening of 10ak. “They had a fight, so Scott jumped on a plane and left her behind,” the source reveals. Scott has allegedly left all the parenting duties to Kourtney as well, while he flits around, focusing on his own whims. “Scott still expects Kourtney to wait on him,” the source says.”He’s just a dog.”
Because of Scott’s treatment of her and his disinterest in his family, Kourtney has started to believe Scott is only staying with her for her money! Scott has apparently become more aggressive with his demands to get his own slice of the Kardashian pie; wanting a larger percentage for appearing on their reality shows and lobbying for his own endorsement deals. It makes sense to me, but this is a family that does NOT like to share the wealth!
“He’s even tried to go behind her back to negotiate his own deal for rights to the baby’s first photos,” an insider shares. “It’s like all their baby is to him is another opportunity to cash in.”
So why does Scott’s bad behavior persist? Insiders report that the reality star refuses to leave Scott while she’s pregnant. “Scott gets whatever he wants because he knows she won’t leave him. Kourtney won’t learn,” the insider describes.
I’m not sure how much of this I buy based on what I saw on KKTNY – although, we know that show isn’t exactly a reliable source for reality! Sources have previously claimed that the trouble in their relationship is scripted! And speaking of reality…
Oh, for the love of irony… Kim and Leann Rimes have found religion. And each other. The twice divorced, sex tape siren and the adulteress have apparently bonded over their recent involvement in Christian fellowship. So that explains Kim’s sudden interest in Tebow!
A source tells toofab that Pastor Brad Johnson, who marriedKhloe Kardashianand Lamar Odom, introduced Kim and Leann while they were both attending services at his church, the Life Change Community Church in Agoura Hills.
The name of this church is PERFECT for what Kim needs, may I just say! Hopefully Leann’s life change will come in the form of knocking off the Twitter antics.
Kim and Leann had lunch together this Friday and then met up again at services on Sunday – which were also attended by Kourtney, Mason, pimpmomager Kris Jenner, and LeAnn’s husband Eddie Cibrian.
Kim and Leann have been spending the off days, since they don’t have jobs to speak of, tweeting about their new friendship and their new interest in the Lord. “So nice when your circle of supportive girl friends grows,” Leann wrote on Sunday following church. Kim responded with “Let’s all go swimming,” then teased about it being an inside joke. “@KimKardashian great seeing you and the fam. See you soon xoxo,” Leann added. If anyone can save those two it’s Jesus. I hope he’s up to the task!
In between praising the Lord and thanking him throughout her Twitter feed, Kim took time out to post yet another annoying kissy face photo!
IS SCOTT IGNORING KOURTNEY TO PARTY? DO YOU BELIEVE THAT HE’S TEASING HER ABOUT HER WEIGHT GAIN? ARE KIM AND LEANN SINCERE ABOUT THEIR NEW INTEREST IN FAITH OR IS THIS (AND THEIR FRIENDSHIP) A PUBLICITY STUNT TO REHAB THEIR BADLY DAMAGED IMAGES?
Yes, the RHOBH extra star tied the knot with Darin Harvey over the weekend in Las Vegas and tweeted all through the experience.
“Getting married @darinharvey !!!,” tweeted Brandi on Saturday night, later adding “Follow my new husband! @darinharvey. Getting my ring tomorrow! Yes I did really do it!”
In fact, Brandi even posted wedding photos (those are below) from her Vegas nuptials. Following Brandi’s tweets many fans began to wonder if she actually tied the knot and it turns out she really did!
Brandi confirms to E! News that her and Darin, a MMA talent manager (who she refers to as her BFF), did indeed get married. “Yes, we had a New Year’s ceremony,” Brandi said. “He is just a BFF — we will annul it.”
Indeed, hours after tying the knot, Darin, a single father, tweeted “Don’t worry @BrandiGlanville and I had a crazy Vegas moment. Getting annulled tomorrow.” Brandi also admitted to E! News that her decision to get married was a spontaneous and drunken one, saying, “It’s all a blur.”
So there you have it folks! Brandi is married… for the time being. Brandi’s ex-husband actor Eddie Cibrian, married his former mistressLeAnn Rimes back in April. Brandi’s wedding photos are below!

In her Bravo blog, Camille states that Dedra was just being a good friend to her though she later adds that Dedra’s actions did make the situation worse.
“Dedra got involved even though I would never ask her or willingly put her in any position to do so. When Dedra saw everything that was going on she just wanted to help. She is my best friend. She was there for me with the situation with Taylor and has been with me through everything with my divorce and my ongoing custody battle… Dedra got emotional that night watching Taylor’s behavior towards me and thought it was unfair. That’s why she came to my defense,” wrote Camille.
Camille goes on to admit that while Dedra had good intentions, she might have made things worse. “At one point, I remember trying to ‘shush’ Dedra because the more Dedra pushed, it became more apparent that Taylor did not want to participate. It just exacerbated the situation and made it more volatile rather than being helpful. I know Dedra’s intentions were good. I know she wanted to help and was hoping that we could have some resolution… I feel bad she got into the mix, but she got emotional when Taylor made a few snide remarks and was being dismissive of my feelings,” Camille added.
Brandi Glanville also shared her two cents, especially why she decided to kick Taylor out of her party in her Bravo blog. First, Brandi reveals that Taylor came to the party anticipating drama and denies being interested in Kyle’s husband Mauricio.
Brandi writes, “Prior to the party Taylor was already talking about having Kyle as “backup.” I’m not sure what she was anticipating. If Taylor had so many reservations about seeing Camille, and knew full well that Camille was going to be at this small gathering in Malibu, she should have stayed home… Kyle immediately had to insult me, even after I complimented her marriage, by talking behind my back about my dress being slightly sheer. FYI: Kyle I had a super-hot husband for a long time too, and I was still able to take a compliment about his looks and adoration for me when one was given. In no way do I have any interest in Mauricio, or any married man for that matter.”
Brandi also reveals why she didn’t invite Dana Wilkeyand comments on Kyle’s need for attention. She continues, “I invited Kim to my party (not that i thought she would come) as a gesture of peace and a step towards starting over. However, I did not invite Dana because I just wanted to get to know the other women without all her nonsense and name dropping… So I think we were all having a good time, and my friend Linda was trying to teach us to belly dance, but then Kyle has to take over and do the splits and crawl on the ground and generally disrespect what Linda was there to do.”
As for why she decided to kick Taylor out of the party, Brandi states: “Although I didn’t know what the fight was about really at that point, I had bonded with Camille so I felt protective of her… I tried to diffuse the situation to the best of my capabilities at the time, which admittedly were not 100 percent. Someone had to leave. It was my party and Taylor was completely out of control. I wanted Camille to stay and she came with Dedra, so I asked Taylor to go before things got even more out of hand.”
And finally, Star magazine is reporting that Brandi and her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian might be heading for an ugly custody battle. The reason? Brandi, 39, is threatening to have Eddie, 38, jailed because he plans to take their sons Mason, 8, and Jake, 4, to Aspen during Christmas with his former mistress new wife LeAnn Rimes.
Brandi is reportedly claiming the trip violates their custody agreement though it “clearly states that he can’t take them out of the country without permission but can take them out of state,” according to a source. “Eddie feels she can’t be reasoned with,” adds the source.
Moving to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH airing on Bravo at 9/8c. On the 15th episode this season titled ‘A Book, a Bachelorette, and a Breakdown,’ it’s a sure bet in Las Vegas when Lisa and Taylor infiltrate Sin City for a bachelorette party. Elsewhere, Adrienne ushers the other ladies to her casino.

On last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly HillsAdrienne deals with a chatty Kim, Kyle throws a charity event, and Lisa confronts the enemy – who happens to be Brandi Glanville. And Taylor! And speaking of Taylor – let’s just pretend she wasn’t there!
Leaving for what is possibly the last Kings game in Sacramento, Adrienne and Paul are waiting on a PJ (that’s slang for private jet) for Kim to arrive and she is late. Very late. When she finally shows up, Paul is concerned about her face. He is itching to get his anesthesia out and do a little nip tuck right on the plane. Hey, the seats recline! I’m concerned about her state of mind? Under the influence or flustered? On the flight, a very spastic Kim raaaaambles on and on making Paul and Adrienne feel a little nutty themselves. Adrienne gives Kim a direction for her loquaciousness by bringing up Crazy Creek. Kim provides Paul with a spot-on demonstration of Lisa skiing in her fur hat– I was dying! Ahahaha! Kim also lets us know she was humped by a bra and thong-wearing Taylor and yeah, she’s had PTS ever since!

E! reporter and reality star Giuliana Rancic is standing her ground when it comes to the brewing weight controversy involving her fellow skinny girlLeAnn Rimes!
The drama began when Giuliana, star of Style network’s Giuliana and Bill, stated in an interview that she would like to feed a too skinny LeAnn at her new restaurant. LeAnn didn’t take too kindly to the comments from Giuliana, who has also been criticized for being too skinny, as she fired off a number of tweets earlier this week.
“She lost a lot of weight from all the stress in her life,” said Giuliana, 36. “She seems a little thin right now, and I think she looks great when she’s a bit curvier.” LeAnn, 29, then responded via twitter: “@GiulianaRancic hey, we should go to dinner sometime. You get criticized all the time for how small you are. You can see just HOW much I eat and maybe put a stop to this crazy “shrinking” once and for all…..oh, & then we should workout together!”
While talking to E! yesterday, Giuliana reveals she sees nothing wrong with her original comments. “I don’t see anything wrong with pointing out that someone looks good curvier. There’s nothing hotter than a girl with some curves. I wish I was a curvy bombshell!…trust me!” says Giuliana.
Giuliana adds that she meant no harm with her comments. “I didn’t mean it as an insult but apparently some people took it the wrong way. If someone told me they prefer me with some more weight on me…I’d give them a big, fat kiss!” says Giuliana. “I think this is just a big misunderstanding and hold no hard feelings towards LeAnn. Hope to see her on a red carpet soon!”
We are closely monitoring LeAnn’s twitter page and will bring you an update the minute she responds! You know she will.
It all started when pot Giuliana, star of Style network’s Giuliana & Bill, decided to criticize LeAnn for being too skinny. Love you Giuliana but have you looked in a mirror lately girl???
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Giuliana spoke out about her plans to open a new restaurant with husbandBill Rancic in Chicago, before stating LeAnn was a celebrity she’d like to feed at their new eatery.
“She lost a lot of weight from all the stress in her life,” Giuliana said about LeAnn. “She seems a little thin right now and I think she looks great when she’s a bit curvier.”
LeAnn, who doesn’t seem to have much of a career lately, wasted no time in responding to Giuliana’s comments! LeAnn tweeted, “@GiulianaRancic hey, we should go to dinner sometime. You get criticized all the time for how small you are. You can see just HOW much I eat and maybe put a stop to this crazy “shrinking” once and for all.” She later added, “Then we should workout together! Good luck with your restaurant!!!!”
When asked by one of her followers to clarify her comments, LeAnn wrote: “I just don’t appreciate her comments, so I really would love for her to hang with me, see who I am. I am a person you know.”
Yikes! Where’s the ultimate SkinnygirlBethenny Frankelto referee when you need her? As of the moment, Giuliana has yet to respond to the latest comments by her fellow skinny girl LeAnn.
