Is she an alcoholic or isn’t she an alcoholic? Is she being phased out of the show or is she not being phased out of the show? Is she a member of the Ford dynasty or is she not a member of the Ford dynasty? There is an intervention planned. There is not an intervention planned. If all of this back and forth continues, I may have a meltdown Taylor Armstrong style.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills sources have been speculating for weeks about Taylor’s terrible drinking problem and the intervention her fellow cast mates were planning. The rumor mill has been a buzz over a drunken Taylor at Portia’s fourth birthday party and her booze-fueled meltdown during a recent spa trip. A source even told Perez Hilton, “The entire cast will be filming together this week and the plan is for the ladies to confront Taylor about her growing dependence on alcohol.”
The drama never seems to end with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast mate Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes, the wife of her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian. Neither of the women really help the cause when they won’t stop bringing the other up on social media and in the press. The latest quote from Brandi on how horrible LeAnn is comes to us from NW HQ, an Australian magazine.
For those of you who thought the dramatic antics of a one Taylor Armstrong on RHOBH couldn’t get any worse, think again. Last season she really started her downward spiral, but it seems to be continuing as the ladies film the third installment of the hit Bravo show. Taylor’s drinking was out of control as she struggled with her marital problems with Russell, but now that he’s committed suicide, her issues seem to have escalated. Of course, in reality world, that means impromptu intervention!
A Bravo source tells Radaronline.com, “The entire cast will be filming together this week and the plan is for the ladies to confront Taylor about her growing dependence on alcohol. It will be the first time that the cast will be together since Portia’s birthday party when Taylor got obscenely drunk. It was very alarming and distressing for Kyle [Richards], Kim [Richards], and the other ladies to see. It struck a chord in particular with Kim who was recently released from rehab, and she is extremely concerned for Taylor, everyone is. The cameras will be rolling when the ladies express their concern for Taylor’s drinking, the latest incident with her getting drunk at a little girl’s birthday party was the last straw, especially because Taylor’s daughter, Kennedy was also at the party and saw her mother in that state.”
Yesterday, reports came out saying Brandi was let go for not being able to include her sons in the show after ex-husband Eddie Cibrian refused to allow them to be filmed. Well, apparently these were just rumors. “She’s a full-time Housewife,” a source close to the show tells E! News. “Bravo is fully supportive of Brandi and understands that Eddie won’t let her kids be shot for the show. It has zero impact on her involvement with the show.”
RumorFix confirms that Brandi will be back next season, although Eddie is not happy about it! “Eddie is going to fight Brandi about having them in the background on the show,” their source reveals. The source also claims Eddie and new wife LeAnn Rimes are hypocrites! “They are constantly doing photo ops and interviews that include the kids and Brandi does nothing.”
“She is going to fight back but Bravo isn’t involved, it’s all good with them. Eddie and LeAnn are always doing staged photo ops and interviews – Brandi just wants to see the kids when she has them.”
Brandi herself dispelled the rumors, taking to Twitter to confront them head-on. “Dear @radar_online u have no idea what ur talking about ur story is ALL wrong! As usual,” she wrote.
And she’s accusing Eddie of being responsible for the rumors! Oh boy. “Funny no one really knew or knows my work status and after one talk with my ex husband its splattered all over the internet #leakmuch?”
ARE YOU RELIEVED BRANDI IS STAYING ON HW? IS EDDIE TO BLAME FOR THE RUMORS?
Uh-oh – don’t count your chickens before they hatch! Or in this case don’t stop counting your wrinkles before your face lift heals! It seems that poor Brandi Glanville can never get a break where Housewives is concerned and may be suffering the same fate as the now retired Camille Grammer. Brandi has, allegedly, been let go for refusing to her feature her children on the show. And it’s all ex-husband Eddie Cibrian‘s fault!
According to RadarOnline, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s contract was yanked by Bravo when it was determined that filming her children was a no-go. “Bravo wanted her to have her kids on the show in order to expand story lines,” a source reports. “But LeAnn [Rimes] and Eddie wouldn’t allow it.” Wait – LeAnn, former mistress, now wife has a say in the matter? Uhhh… sounds fishy to me!

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?
