The reunion begins with Andy Cohen greeting and complimenting the ladies, you know, easing them in for the verbal smackdown that is about to ensue! The first question is about plastic surgery and Lisa reveals she’s only had botox and fillers, while we learn that Paul is not Adrienne‘s plastic surgeon. Kyle then comes close to guessing the price of a gallon of milk, while Taylor doesn’t believe 60k is too much for a kid’s birthday party though Lisa thinks it’s “bloody ridiculous.”
The topic turns to the ladies ginormous mansions and we find out Lisa‘s home is actually 17,000 sq ft and not the 15,480 posted on her home listing. Lisa reveals she now wants to downsize and Andy tries to be messy wants to know what Lisa would consider a cozy home. At this point I’m thinking don’t take the bait Lisa, don’t give a figure, don’t do it! Lisa is smart and doesn’t take the bait, simply stating a cozy home is one in which she doesn’t have to page her husband. Good answer as there was really no right answer for a question like that.

On the first part airing tonight on Bravo at 9/8c, the ladies regroup with Andy Cohen to rehash the biggest fights of the season. We will get to see Camille vs. Kyle, Kyle vs. Kim, and Kim vs. Taylor. Camille will also attempt to set the record straight on being called “the most hated housewife” in the history of the franchise as well as details of her split from Kelsey.
Watch What Happens Live will not be airing tonight.
In other BH news, Popeater is reporting that Kelsey Grammer, 55, might be getting ready to do the unthinkable, which is to invite his estranged wife Camille Grammer, 42, to his upcoming wedding with fiance Kayte Walsh, 29.
The reason? Kelsey wants so badly for his kids to be present at his wedding that he’s willing to invite Camille if that’s what it takes. So will Camille be attending? The jury is still out on that but D.D. a friend of Camille’s does manage to sing her great praises in the Popeater article.
“Camille is an amazing human being,” D.D. a friend of Camille tells Popeater. “For her, it’s all about her children. She’s willing to put her personal hurt aside to be a great mom.”
Another source tells Popeater that Camille has now come to terms with Kelsey’s decision to remarry and her main concern is putting their kids first.
Allrighty, below is a preview clip of tonight’s episode. Kim Richards calls out the delusionalTaylor Armstrong on her violent threats despite claiming to be an advocate against domestic violence.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW AND TONIGHT’S REUNION PART 1?
Following the volatile finale episode of the hit show, many fans this week are asking Camille who? As Camille’s costars Taylor Armstrong and Kyle Richards are both neck in neck for the new most hated least liked BH housewife.
Plus in numerous interviews given in recent weeks, four of her costars, including Kyle, have mentioned they would like to see her back for a second season of the show.
Kyle told E! news that despite their differences, she would welcome Camille’s return. “Would I want her to be there [if there was another season]? Yes, I would,” Kyle revealed two days after the reunion was filmed. “I know that we’re very different and we’re like oil and water together, but I can’t help but think what she’s going through in her personal life might have something to do with that. It’d be interesting to see what happens when things in her life have calmed down a bit and maybe we can work things out a little better.”
And just this week, Adrienne Maloof also voiced her support for a Camille come back. “I personally think that she will come back,” Adrienne said to E!. “I also personally think she should because going out the way that she’s going to go out, it’s probably in her best interest.” Good point.
And unlike her other costars (with the exception of Kyle) who kiss up to Camille refuse to utter a word of criticism against Camille in the press, Adrienne gives a refreshing and honest answer when it comes to some of Camille’s actions on the show this season. “I have to tell you, it’s hard to defend the things that come out of her mouth,” said Adrienne. “I have to really be honest about that. Because I even had to say, “Wow! What did she just say?’ I just don’t know her to be that way…I don’t know what goes on inside her little head.”
Lisa Vanderpump and Taylor have also revealed in different interviews that they would like Camille to come back to the show. Must say if Camille had any smarts in her, she should just continue to relax, keep her mouth shut, make plans for her soon to be $50 million fortune, while watching what happens. It’s safe to say most of her actions over the season have now been over shadowed by the finale episode.
And finally, a video which appears to show a pretty drunk/inebriated Taylor Armstrong is making its rounds today. The footage, which was actually shot back in October 2010, shows Taylor talking to paparazzi with costar Kyle and Faye Resnick in Hollywood.
Taylor appears to have a hard time standing up straight as Kyle can be seen at one point trying to hold her up. When Kyle is asked who was responsible for the most drama of the season, she replies, “The drama queen? I think we already voted Kim as the drama queen. Yes Kim is the drama queen.” Who knew Kim was such a drama queen? As for who is the most scandalous, Kyle simply laughs it off and doesn’t mention a name.
That video footage is below. While the video is over 11 minutes, only the first 4 minutes and 30 seconds are about the BH ladies.
No word on whether or not Taylor spent a week in rehab after this video was made.

The finale of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills aired last night and the ending proved to be both powerful and emotional. But if there’s one thing I learned last night, it is that Bravo needs to do whatever it takes to sign Taylor Armstrong for season 2! Forget Camille. Taylor is solely responsible for the 3 major smackdowns that took place this season, thus making the show a success. Think about it, Taylor completely instigated the NYC fight between Camille & Kyle which spilt into the dinner from hell. As if that wasn’t enough, the phony sly lady instigated the limo fight between Kim & Kyle by confronting Kim on something she was solely responsible for. Oh yes, Bravo needs to crave it to any demands Taylor might have. She is indeed needed back for a second season.
The episode begins where we left off last week, with Camille and Kelsey getting ready to go to the Tonys. As they ride in the limo together, things still seem very awkward between the two as they, well mostly Camille, continue to try to put on a happy face for their entourage. I once again wonder who’s idea it really was to have Camille come to NYC for the awards.
Next up, Kyle decides to pay her Psychic/Medium Rebecca a visit. According to Kyle, Rebecca is the real deal unlike Camille’s clown aka Allison. Kyle reveals she brought her mom along with her as I can only assume she means her ashes. “I didn’t know if you were going to think I was crazy or not,” asks Kyle. Well, maybe a little crazy Kyle but not that much. “I also brought a lock of her hair,” adds Kyle. Okay and now we’re at a level 10 crazy. Rebecca then goes on to tell Kyle that she is currently having a conflict with another woman. Kyle agrees though that statement could easily apply to 99.98% of the world’s female population. Rebecca reveals some other things that ring true to Kyle and the session ends.

On the 13th episode of the very successful first season, all thanks to Camille?, the ladies celebrate Taylor’s birthday with a lavish bash on a hotel rooftop—but it’s a fiery conflict between Kim and Kyle that takes the cake. Elsewhere, Camille’s marital issues reach the breaking point. The episode titled “Unforgivable” airs at 9/8c on Bravo.
Watch What Happens Live – Though the guide says Debbie Gibson is the guest on tonight’s show, Adrienne Malooftweeted this week that both she and Taylor Armstong will be on the show following the finale.
Also in a new interview with PEOPLE magazine, Kyle Richards reveals she is dreading tonight’s episode. “All I can say is this is what I’ve been dreading the whole season,” Richards told PEOPLE. “What’s coming up created an enormous amount of anxiety for me and it’s a very emotional and very difficult episode to see.”
Kyle adds that she hopes viewers will look at the whole picture when it comes to her blowout with sister Kim on the finale. “I get some flack for my relationship with my sister, but you’re just seeing parts that are on screen so it’s very hard to understand a relationship that has been so many years in the making,” Kyle, 42, said.
In more BH news, the National Enquirer is reporting that Camille Grammer has officially signed on to do a second season, but get this, Bravo reportedly had to cave in to a lot of her demands.
According to the Enquirer, Camille made the deal on Tuesday during a meeting with producers of the show, who reluctantly met her demands. The National Enquirer is not the most credible source so only time will tell if the story is true or not.
And finally, Lisa Vanderpump is a guest on The Ellen Show today to dish about the finale. Ellen DeGeneres tweeted a backstage photo of Lisa with Giggy in a baby stroller. Click the continue reading button to see the photo, and a preview clip of tonight’s episode below -

In the 1 minute, 38 second video clip, Camille claims: “The whole season was set up to make me look bad.” She then gets into it with Kyle, stating, “You bully me all the time and I’m fed up.” Kyle fires back: “Quit using the buzzword of the moment.”
Kyle also brings up Camille’s porn past, defending her friend Faye Resnick by stating doing porn is way more corrupt that doing a tasteful spread in Playboy. Other issues brought up? Kim might have a drinking problem, Kim is asked is the feels bullied by Kyle, and Lisa’s husband Ken can be seen stating he absolutely hates someone, whom we believe is Cedric.
The first part of the reunion showdown airs Jan. 27 with part 2 scheduled to air Feb. 1 at 10 p.m. ET on Bravo.
In other BH news, Camille Grammer continues her press tour, perhaps still hoping to redeem her image, with her latest appearance on Lopez Tonight Tuesday night.
During the interview, Camille tried to backtrack on the comments she made about estranged husband and father of her two children, Kelsey Grammer, when she strongly insinuated he was a cross-dresser. She told George Lopez her comments on the Howard Stern was simply a big joke.
However, TMZ is flat out calling Camille a liar. According to TMZ, it couldn’t be a joke because Camille has also shared the same exact information with some members of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast. People from the show tell TMZ that Camille was very bitter over the divorce, and would tell anyone who would listen that Kelsey loved to wear women’s clothing. Not surprising as Camille has been shown being very vindictive on the Bravo hit show.
The preview clip of the reunion is below -
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE REUNION CLIP AND TMZ’S REPORT ABOUT CAMILLE?
Below are way more before they were famous photos including one of Adrienne Maloof before plastic surgery, well before most of the plastic surgeries (she looked much nicer by the way), plus some high school photos of Taylor Armstrong, bikini shots of Kyle Richards and Lisa, Camille Grammer before she became a villain and a much younger foxier Kim Richards.
Though Bravo has yet to officially confirm there will be a second season (very likely as the ratings have been great), a source close to production confirms to THR that Camille has decided she will not be returning either way.
Camille, 42, has found herself on the receiving end of a lot of backlash whether it be regarding her four nannies for two children, her crazy friendships with married tennis partner Nick Stabile and medium from hell Allison Dubois, and her now infamous feud with costar Kyle Richards.
In fact, Camille recently graced the cover of Life & Style magazine after being declared the most hated housewife ever. THR, a very reputable media outlet, does not give a reason for Camille’s decision to leave the show.
But we have to wonder if this could be also related to the reunion show which was taped yesterday (Tuesday) in Los Angeles. While Bravo attempts to keep the details of the reunion under wraps until it airs, below are the tweets from Andy Cohen and some of the housewives regarding the taping -
“Giggy and I just wrapped an INCREDIBLE reunion show! Wow” – Andy
“Omg. Such a long day! Too much to even begin to get in to :/… I feel like I’ve been shagged thru a hedge backwards :)” – Kyle
“Ok …all I can say is wow…it’s over! Goodnight fellow housewives,a lot to deal with today.sleep well everybody x x” – Lisa
“Good Morning! Yesterday was such an emotional day filming the reunion. Hoping for a sunny LA day to help shake off the blues.” – Taylor
Bravo has yet to announce the airing date of the reunion show but we will let you know once they do. And finally, the following blind item was posted on the CDAN website yesterday via Bravo Gossip -
“This controversial Real Housewives star is about to have some added drama in her life. The tabloids are working overtime to get a bunch of stories about our Housewife and her glory days as a hooker. Not anyone in New York or New Jersey.”
It seems to be referencing Camille Grammer, who is long rumored to have been a past escort. Yikes.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON CAMILLE QUITTING THE SHOW?
UPDATE – Hours after the HollywoodReporter first broke the news, TMZ is also confirming Camille has indeed quit the show. In fact, Camille has reportedly lawyered up and is now discussing a “settlement” with Bravo. We’re guessing the lawyering up is so that she can get out of her contract with the network.
As for the reason she is quitting, sources close to Camille reveal she is upset with the way she’s been portrayed on the show. And that she did the show because her soon to be ex-husband Kelsey Grammer wanted her to, but now that she’s a single mom, “circumstances have changed.”
UPDATE #2 - A rep for Camille tells PEOPLE “she has not made any decision yet about whether she’s returning to the show or not.” The rep adds, “She taped a very explosive reunion episode yesterday, where people are going to see a different side of her than they’ve seen before.” TMZ and THR are two highly reliable media outlets so we’re are going to go with what they are reporting. The comments of Camille’s rep probably has to do with legalities and the fact that she is still under contract with Bravo.
