Surprisingly missing from the cast photo is Brandi Glanville who was reported to be the new housewife. But fret not as Brandi will be on the new season though Bravo is not making her an official housewife. “Though not official “housewives,” this season the ladies are joined by two new friends: Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey, who certainly know how to spice things up in the world’s most famous zip code,” reads the press release. Dana is described as a party planner who throws elaborate parties (she’s the party planner behind Taylor’s infamous $60k tea party for her 4 year-old daughter in season one). A photo of Dana is below.
Bravo also released the official season trailer and it is nothing but drama! In the 2-minute trailer below, Taylor can be seen crying over and over and over, Lisa seems to ruffle Adrienne’s feathers as the two get into it (Adrienne accuses her of always stirring the pot), Camille and Kyle also get into it, and Taylor and Kyle fight as well. Cedric also makes an appearance when he crashes Lisa’s party.
However in the most dramatic scene, Brandi and Kim get into a very ugly argument that almost comes to blows. In the heated exchange, Brandi accuses Kim of using drugs! WHOA! Kim strikes right back by calling Brandi a “slut pig.” For some reason it appears Bravo has edited the current clip. In the original clip I viewed this morning, Brandi actually accuses Kim of snorting crystal meth in bathrooms. Ai ya ya.
Are you excited about the new season? The trailer is below!
Camille, 42, Kim, 46, and Brandi, 38, opted for some teeny bikinis, while Kyle and Lisa remained covered up. Missing from the trip are Taylor Armstrong and Adrienne Maloof. As reported, Brandi, while not getting along with most of the other cast members, has become good friends with Camille.

In other BH news, the NY Post is reporting that we will be getting a much different Camille Grammeron the upcoming season of the RHOBH than we did last year.
Sources reveal that Camille is much more “subdued” this season to the point that Bravo producers are finding her character — which provided a whole lot of the crazy entertainment in Season 1 — “really boring.” A source adds, “Producers have told Camille she has to start being more interesting and causing more drama.”
The Post speculates that Camille might have been ordered to keep her mouth shut on certain issues in her divorce settlement with ex-husband Kelsey Grammer. The same settlement that netted her a reported $50 million!
“Nobody knows what’s in that divorce settlement,” says a source close to the show. “But I would not be surprised if she could not discuss certain things. She’s checking what comes out of her mouth, and the producers are pushing for the cast to be as naughty and as full-on as possible.”
Another source speculates that Camille’s new act is because she doesn’t want to lose any access to her children. Her friends state that she’s simply refusing to act in a way on the show that could give Kelsey ammunition for a custody battle. A rep for Bravo denied to comment on the story.
As we reported last week, Kelsey has filed papers attempting to get full custody of his two kids with Camille who has vowed to fight to keep her kids.

According to the latest issue of the magazine, Taylor, 39, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, has finally left the icy Russell after 7 years of marriage. A source close to Taylor confirms the news to the mag.
“They’ve had huge marital problems related to finances,” the insider says of the couple, who were most recently seen together with daughter Kennedy, 5, at a May 7 Lollipop Theater Network event in California.
The news of a split doesn’t come as a surprise as their marital issues were well documented on the first season of the Bravo hit show which had Taylor comparing her marriage to a business arrangement. Plus reports came out months ago that the couple was undergoing marriage counseling.
The insider adds that the split has taken a physical toll on Taylor. “She’s emaciated — down 10, 15 pounds,” the source reveals. A report came out last month questioning if Taylor was anorexic after shocking new bikini photos of her came out showing a very skinny frame.
Meanwhile, the drama doesn’t end there for the RHOBH. While most of us assumed new housewife Brandi Glanville would be clashing with Lisa Vanderpump (Brandi’s good friends with Lisa’s former houseguest Cedric), it seems it is Kyle Richards who is clashing with Brandi on the show.
UsWeekly reports Brandi, 38 and Kyle, 42, have been “going at it” since filming began on season 2. “They got into a fight and Brandi lunged at Kyle,” reveals a source. “They had to be separated by producers.”
PEOPLE magazine is reporting that Brandi is “very happy” about joining the RHOBH and that “she really wanted to be on the show.” As for what we can expect on the second season, sources reveal Kim Richards is more assertive while sister Kyle has taken a more laid-back approach. Also, the entire cast has been more accepting of Camille Grammer, who clashed with Kyle on the first season.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR LEAVING RUSSELL? ARE YOU SURPRISED? PLUS THOUGHTS ON THE CLASH BETWEEN BRANDI AND KYLE?
UPDATE - Taylor’s rep is now denying the split to PEOPLE magazine. A source states that while “their relationship is not without trouble… they’re still together.” The source also denies any financial difficulties. Only time will tell if the original Us Weekly story is true as US tends to be a reliable media outlet.
It was reported days ago that Brandi was in talks with Bravo, but TMZ has since confirmed Brandi has signed the dotted line to join the cast. Also confirming the news are other multiple media outlets including E! News.
According to E!, Brandi beat out other hopefuls to get the gig including Ayda Field. “Bravo actually had an offer out to Robbie Williams‘ wife, actress Ayda Field, but it didn’t work out because of contractual issues,” a source reveals. “That left an open spot for Brandi, and they are excited she is joining the cast. Everyone is getting along fine…for now.”
Brandi has already began filming scenes which brings us to another question: Is Faye Resnick also a new housewife on the show? E! reports that answer is no. However, thanks to her clashing with Camille Grammerlast year, Faye will “be featured more on season two of the hit show.”
And back to Brandi, who will without a doubt be a controversial character on the show. Brandi first came into the tabloid limelight back in March, 2009 when UsWeekly broke the news that her then husband, actor Eddie Cibrian, was cheating on her with country singer LeAnn Rimes, who was then married to her former backup dancer Dean Sheremet.
At first Eddie, 37, publicly denied the affair and Brandi decided to give him another chance. However Eddie and Brandi ultimately split up in July, 2009 after Brandi discovered Eddie and LeAnn, 28, were still carrying on with their sordid affair. A month later, the disgusting twosome, Eddie and LeAnn, went public with their relationship, leading up to a nasty feud between Brandi and LeAnn. Brandi did not hesitate to publicly bash both Eddie and LeAnn over their actions and for breaking up her family.
Brandi and Eddie have two sons together, Mason, 7, and Jake, 4. Fast forward to today, Eddie and LeAnn recently tied the knot on April 22, 2011, and Brandi was reportedly unhappy that her sons were not told of the nuptials in advance.
Brandi, 38, is a former model and make-up artist. She most recently made headlines for a DUI arrest last October and pled no contest to the charges on April 1. She was sentenced to 36 months probation, 3 months of alcohol education courses, and a $390 fine.
And as we reported back in February, Brandi is good friends with Cedric Martinez, the same Cedric who had a falling out with Lisa Vanderpump. Now that Brandi is a part of the cast, we can expect some guaranteed fireworks between the two ladies. In fact, Lisa made an interesting tweet yesterday. “Mmmm ….today was challenging….mmmm housewife moment..” tweeted Lisa.
TMZ is also reporting today that Eddie is making it crystal clear he doesn’t want his kids on the Real Housewives (sour grapes much?) and is even threatening legal action if their two sons appear on the show.
Brandi is reportedly pissed as she believes Eddie is imposing a huge double standard. The reason? He and the kids just appeared in a massive spread in People magazine with his co-adulterer LeAnn. Who knew Eddie had morals and standards? In the meantime, the 2nd season of the RHOBH continues to film! More photos of Brandi below -

Kim Richardsand Kyle Richardshave both spoken out about re-building their relationship in bits and pieces, but in a new interview with UsWeekly, Kim opens up about her feelings on the now infamous limo fight.
UsWeekly caught up with Kim, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, as she hosted the opening of the Azure Luxury Pool in Las Vegas with Kyle on April 10. The above photo was taken from the event.
“I still don’t know what Kyle was going to do to me in the back of the car — kill me, strangle me,” Kim, 46, tells US of the blow-up, during which Kyle accused her of being an alcoholic, while she screamed that Kyle stole her house.
“I just wanted you (Kim) to shut up,” Kyle, 42 explains of the incident. “You wanted me to shut up, but you were doing all the talking,” argued Kim before thinking better of it. “Won’t go there. If you hold on to the negative, it brings you down. It definitely took it’s toll on us.”
Kyle insists the experience has made them both stronger. “Kim and I went through a hard time last season, but I really do feel that even though we had that argument we’re in such a good place now,” she states. “Maybe some good came out of it. We both grew and learned from it.”
Kim is more reserved simply stating their relationship is a “work in progress,” adding they’re still putting the pieces back in place. More photos of Kim & Kyle hosting the event below.
In other BH news, Lisa Vanderpump attended the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Media Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night during which her beloved dog Giggy took a fall.
See Lisa decided to let the pampered Pomeranian stand on his own last night to disastrous results. Poor Gigster fell flat on his face after Lisa placed him down on the red carpet to bask in the spotlight. Lisa appeared horrified and quickly helped Giggy back up.
The Gigter was not hurt and enjoyed the rest of the night with his mistress. More photos of Lisa and Giggy at the GLAAD awards below.

This apparently led to some whispers and gossip by some of the Bravo housewives. A source overheard one star hiss, “It takes a village to raise a child,” citing the entourage around Padma’s dressing area playing with her 14-month-old daughter, Krishna.
A witness said, “They took all of the women’s bags that had been left in a dressing room and threw them into a hallway so Padma could sit separately with her baby in between shoots.”
Top Chef judge Gail Simmons however comes to Padma’s defense. “We didn’t know a lot of the women [who were there]. It’s not like we work together on a regular basis. I met a lot of people on the set for the first time,” said Gail. “It’s not like we’re holding hands and singing ‘Kumbaya.’”
Gail added, “I don’t think I spoke to most people, either. You are there to do a job. She [Padma] was with her child. I would think that anyone could understand that, and she’s still nursing, which is also not a public thing to do. What’s there to complain about? It’s not high school. We’re all professionals.” Millionaire Matchmaker star Patti added, “We all thought her baby was beautiful.”
A rep for Bravo tells the Post there were no designated dressing rooms. And Padma’s rep sniped, “I think this is a nonsensical item from a ‘Housewife’ who is jealous. It’s going to make Padma look bad, and it’s just not true . . . she didn’t get any special treatment.” Meow!
No word yet on how this article made it’s way to the Post though oddly enough one of the above names has a show debuting tonight on Bravo.
