Lisa Vanderpump


Following this season’s last week’s drama with Kim Richards on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kim’s sister Kyle Richards and her costar Lisa Vanderpump are now speaking out.

In her latest Bravo blog, Kyle opens up about her reasons for wanting to confront Kim about her habitual tardiness and behavior as well as touches on her feelings on Kim’s boyfriend Ken Blumenfeld. Below’s an excerpt from Kyle’s blog:

“The next day Kim finally arrived! At this point I was feeling that she had already missed a lot of the fun. I never saw her all day until dinner that night. When Kim and Ken showed up and acted like it was just any other day. I was beyond frustrated. I expected her to explain what happened (truthfully) and or apologize. It wasn’t like it was a secret. The entire group knew what was going on. Kim likes to brush things under the carpet. I like to put them on the table. The reason I need to do that with my sister is if we don’t address what is bothering us, it builds up and then our relationship becomes very passive aggressive — as you witnessed in Season 1. I wanted my sister to just be honest — not just about Hawaii but about everything. Mauricio has never had an argument with Kim before, but he has witnessed my hurt and frustration and felt compelled to say something.”

Kyle remarks about Ken issues:

“On our way to dinner that night we had barely spoken. She stayed near Ken and laughed with the girls but never mentioned the boat or barely seeing any of us on what was supposed to be Mauricio’s birthday party. At dinner, I could no longer pretend everything was OK. Ken wasn’t helping matters either. I didn’t trust him and felt he was not a positive influence on my sister. He knew I didn’t care for him and made sure I knew he felt the same about me. No love lost there. I was very worried about my sister and didn’t care what he thought about me.”

In her bravo blog, Lisa does’t hold back when she discusses Kim’s behavior in Hawaii:

“…Things were simmering and feelings were running high with regard to Kim’s strange behavior. Her stories didn’t tally up with the exasperating tales she had relayed to us. I was beginning to lose patience. After so many months of feeble excuses, it didn’t matter to me with whom she arrived or what paltry tale or trivial excuse was made. I didn’t want it to ruin our break. And I knew my input would have been irrelevant to her anyway.

Kyle and Mauricio were not content to accept her dismissive behavior and questioned her relentlessly at the dinner table. It was an uncomfortable scenario. I tried to support Kyle and urged her not to cry, as this was the birthday dinner and I knew it had great potential for disaster if tempers were unleashed. At what point do you come to the conclusion that some things never change? We had endured six months of a plethora of excuses, of no shows, of fabricated reasons. It was becoming a joke — just not a funny one.

So we left. And then I saw the footage of how they showed no remorse at keeping us waiting. They seemed content to indulge themselves in their own company with no thought for the fact that we were here as a group and at Mauricio’s invitation.”

PHOTOS – KIM RICHARDS STEPS OUT POST REHAB!

In other RHOBH news, the Rumor Fix blog is reporting that on December 21, 2011, four months after Russell Armstrong’s tragic suicide, the IRS imposed a tax lien on his property for failure to pay $23,689.94 in back taxes.

Unfortunately for Taylor Armstrong, she will likely be responsible for this tax bill as she remains married to Russell and the lien on Russell’s property stays with his estate.

And finally, Camille Grammer’s ex-husband Kelsey Grammer is expecting twins with his former mistress new wife Kayte Walsh, 32! Kelsey, who won an award at last night’s Golden Globes Awards, reveals he is excited to be a father again.

“I’m really looking forward to meeting these new arrivals,” Kelsey, 56, told reporters last night. “Fatherhood’s always different, based upon the character that comes into your life. They arrive and tell you what you have to do.”

A new episode of the RHOBH airs tonight on Bravo! On the 19th episode this season titled ‘Night of a Thousand Surprises,’ drama flows when Lisa throws a launch party for her new lounge. Meanwhile, Kim discloses the truth about her new boyfriend.

The episode airs at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!

With the second season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (finally) winding down, viewers still don’t know what to think about resident drama queen Taylor Armstrong. The lady who made an entire series revolve around her faux tears (are her tear ducts frozen from botox?!) is still leaving us perplexed months after filming ended and months after the unfortunate death of her estranged husband Russell Armstrong.

Taylor, who is said to be destroyed by Russell’s passing and working hard to rebuild her life as a stronger person, has been all over the place in the media giving interviews, selling books and giving a very interesting portrait of a woman in grief. In the latest, three conflicting reports give us three different versions of Taylor — really, who knows what to believe.

First up, from RadarOnline comes the story of Taylor, the abused wife, and more information about the time-frame for Monday’s episode. Next week viewers will see Lisa Vanderpump re-opening her revamped lounge SUR with a big party attended by all the ladies of the cast. Previews show Lisa questioning Taylor about a suspicious bruise near her eye and Taylor having yet another tearless, wailing breakdown over her marriage.

According to the new report, more than a month had lapsed between shooting because Taylor had been hospitalized after an alleged serious beating left her face terribly bruised. Taylor also confessed to having Lasik eye surgery in early July, while filming was still taking place. Taylor has stated Russell severely beat her following the surgery, dislocating her cornea which resulted in the hospitalization. The photos she released of the alleged beating stemmed from that incident.

“Taylor still was bruised when she was at the party. She admits on camera to the ladies that Russell had badly beaten her. This beating had taken place after she had told him their marriage was over,” an insider reveals.

“Taylor wanted to face the ladies, especially Camille Grammer, because Taylor felt that Kelsey’s ex-wife had put her in danger by telling the others that Russell had been violent with her in the past,” Taylor the insider adds.

Last week, viewers saw Taylor speaking to wannabe Housewife Dana Wilkey supposedly a few days after Russell moved out and days before next week’s episode was filmed. At that time Taylor did not appear to have any visible facial injuries.

According to this report Lisa postponed the reopening of SUR to accommodate Taylor’s healing because Bravo wanted to film the event. Which would mean all the ladies are acting on next week’s episode?!

“Taylor’s hospitalization threw a monkey wrench in Lisa’s bottom line. The restaurant had been ready to open, viewers will see Lisa frantically trying to get the restaurant open, but Bravo had told her they wanted to film the grand opening party, so they had to wait until Taylor was out of the hospital,” the source describes of Bravo’s decision to fabricate scenes.

“Taylor wanted to face all of the women in one place. She wanted and needed to have them see her with the bruise on her face. Taylor was in VERY heavy make-up that night.” SUR allegedly actually re-opened in early-September, which was almost a month after Russell’s death — Perhaps this was a special event party filmed expressly for Bravo, but it’s very interesting from a timing perspective.

Last week, Bravo filmed the season two reunion. Andy Cohen stated that Taylor “didn’t shed a tear” during filming, which left many viewers alarmed given the tumultuous season and all that has been exposed in the course of filming.

“Taylor didn’t cry at the reunion because she is such a stronger person now, and she is no longer a victim,” the source clarifies. “This was a tremendous accomplishment because of everything that she has been through, with Russell’s suicide, and Taylor’s issues with Camille and the other Housewives this season.”

Now, I’m not sure what I think of Taylor’s allegations just yet, but I’ll withhold complete judgment until viewing the remainder of the season and the reunion, where Taylor has promised all the “haters” will eat “crow.”

Moving on, in report two we see Taylor, the grifter mess in danger of being exposed, also from the RadarOnline. Radar has released photos of a drunk and hysterical Taylor being hauled out Craig’s — a Beverly Hills restaurant — by a friend on Thursday night.

“Judging by the way she was staggering she was very drunk. She couldn’t stand up without help and was being held up by her friend as she walked to the car. She looked absolutely wasted,” a witness reports. “She was obviously very emotional and distraught. When she got in the back of the car — with considerable help from her friend — she broke down in floods of tears.”

This is not the first time Taylor has been photographed completely intoxicated in recent months. When she was in NYC to film WWHL Taylor appeared completely out of it and looked a wreck. “She’s a total mess,” a friend reveals. “Her world was built on a fantasy house of cards that’s crashing down.”

“Taylor’s whole persona is false and with Russell’s death friends say that she’s afraid the jig is up and people are aware of what a phony she is,” the friend adds. Indeed, Taylor has been in court battling a lawsuit filed by MyMedicalRecords.com, a company Russell and her supposedly scammed.

“Every time I’ve been around her lately she drinks excessively, we’re all worried about how badly she seems to be doing,” the friend muses. Multiple reports have come forward questioning Taylor’s drinking habits and asserting that friends and family are so concerned they have encouraged Taylor to consider rehab. Taylor’s drinking was also a concern on the show when viewers watched her become intoxicated and out of control with rage and emotions on several episodes.

Finally, Taylor is moving on as photos of Taylor on the prowl on a date are below. Girl’s got bills to pay! Photogs spotted the grieving widow with a mystery man Thursday night — guess where!? Craig’s restaurant in Beverly Hills. Headed into the restaurant Taylor was a little steadier on her feet, but judging from the above information, I’m guessing a second date isn’t happening…

Taylor is seen walking with and then hugging the unnamed man. Photos of Taylor with her date are below!

THOUGHTS ON THE SHOCKING INFORMATION ABOUT THE FILMING SCHEDULE? WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE CONCERNING THE LATEST INFORMATION ON TAYLOR?

CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON TO SEE TAYLOR DRUNK WITH HER DATE -


Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was fun except for the KimKyle-nanigans – that’s shenanigans by Kim and Kyle, if you can’t decipher the lingo. Kim, in addition to looking a hot mess and appearing hung over the entire trip also had Kyle taking every opportunity to argue with her; those two again managed to be completely inconsiderate to everyone, but luckily it ruined only Kyle’s good time.

Things start out on a high note with Adrienne and Paul hiking and holding hands. Double take! I love Paul in middle-aged tourist gear. All he needs is a fannypack to go with Adrienne’s “Visit The Palms, I need the money!” visor.

Kim finally arrives in Lanai! As for being late, “Oops” is all she has to say for herself. Kim is so excited to finally be there and unluckily gets placed in a room right next to Kyle. A frantic Kyle hears Kim’s voice and ignores Mauricio and margaritas(!) to eavesdrop on Kim. In the talking head, Kim states: “I chose to not *coke sniff* to talk to Kyle.” Nice.

Cedric Martinez, former houseboy housemate of Lisa Vanderpump simply refuses to go away!

The latest by Cedric is an article from Star Magazine in which he spills all sorts of secrets about the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast. In the article, Cedric states Kim Richards’s addiction issues are much worse than viewers can imagine, reveals Lisa’s true feelings about hubby Ken and costar Adrienne Maloof and also claims Adrienne might be in the worst financial condition out of all the cast.

Below are a few of Cedric’s “highlights” from the article:

Kim Richards’ Struggles With Alcohol Addiction – According to Cedric, an addition to alcohol is the least of Kim’s problems. “The truth is much darker,” he says. “I’m thankful Kim is now in rehab, hopefully getting some professional help.”

Lisa’s Feelings On Hubby Ken and Adrienne Maloof - Cedric says that despite their united font on the show, Lisa is “mortified and embarrassed,” by her husband Ken over some of his ‘ignorant jabs.’ As for Adrienne, Cedric states Lisa hates her neighbor and costar. “She feels Adrienne is not worthy of being on the show,” he says.

Cedric’s Relationship With Brandi Glanville - Cedric also reveals what has been reported previously, which is that he and newbie Brandi actually just met last year at a lunch organized by the show producers, and not during their modeling days in Europe a decade ago as they previously claimed. “It was a manufactured friendship to keep me on the show,” Cedric tells Star.

Why Was He Living With Lisa? And What Happened To Lisa’s Complaint? - “I moved out months before she landed the role,” says Cedric adding that producers convinced him to move back in for season 1 filming. As for the complaint Lisa filed against him with the cops last year over claims of a possible extortion, Cedric says Lisa’s case was weak. “I was never even contacted by police.”

The BH Housewives Lying About Their Wealth? – “Not everything is as it seems,” says Cedric, who claims seemingly uberrich Adrienne may actually be in the worst financial shape of them all. “They were forced to unload 98 percent of their beloved Palms Casino Resort,” claims Cedric. A report came out last year stating Adrienne was having financial difficulty and was forced to downgrade her lavish lifestyle. And last October, Adrienne admitted she had been “cutting back” on her lavish lifestyle.

Cedric, who will be appearing on the season 2 finale of the RHOBH, also claims producers of the show were the ones that invited him to Lisa’s party. “Lisa confronted me with some of the worst acting you’ll ever see on television. She claimed I wasn’t invited and told me to leave. It’s sums up all the phoniness and manufactured drama on the show,” he says.

Meanwhile, the RHOBH season 2 reunion filmed on Thursday and we’re hearing Kim Richards, who is still in rehab, did not attend. Below are some tweets from Kyle Richards, Taylor Armstrong and Andy Cohen after the taping:

Kyle tweeted – “Emotionally draining day. So hard to re live all the difficult moments this season on #RHOBH. Thank u to our “therapist” @BravoAndy. Xo”

Taylor tweeted – “Thanks for the great support! For the haters, when all the truth comes out I’ll try to post some delish “crow” recipes.” Really Taylor?

Andy tweeted – “Long day taping #RHOBH Reunion. Emotional, intense, dramatic. The wives deserve a cocktail right about now…. !”

No word yet on how many parts the reunion will be but it is scheduled to air on January 30.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON CEDRIC’S COMMENTS ABOUT THE BH HOUSEWIVES? DO YOU BELIEVE HIM?


On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills a little bit fun and fancy came back to us as the ladies sans Taylor embarked on a trip to Hawaii. Luckily, Loony Lips’ drama wasn’t far behind as she called mid-beach to let everyone know she had ditched her hubs for greener pastures. Hey, I heard Mohammed is single! What about that Martin? Kim also missed the show, but Brandi was there in her stead and ready for a full-frontal close-up! That was some bikini!

Things begin as The White Party rages on! Moments after Kyle and co. have kicked Taylor and Russell out for threatening to sue Camille, the ladies reconvene in the all-white living room to break down the situation again for the umpteenth time. Is she or isn’t she? Lying that is! No one seems to know what to believe. Even Taylor’s BFF is pretty mute about the situation. Adrienne is still pretty pissed that Taylor involved the ladies in all this mess — which I’m pretty sure she thinks is nonsense. Only Dana readily believes her BFFL. Hey girl wants to stay on RHOBH!

It’s the holidays and in the spirit of goodwill towards all, I will try my best to keep the snark out of this post about the ever present Taylor Armstrong and her plight to remain in the spotlight while playing the role of doting mother and grieving widow in light of estranged husband Russell Armstrong’s suicide. Because honestly, who am I to say that she’s not? And FYI, that wasn’t sarcasm it was me attempting objectivity. Weird, I know.

Hollywoodlife.com caught up with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star on December 22 as her five-year-old daughter and friends decorated cupcakes at a Beverly Hills bake shop. Taylor told the site, “My daughter Kennedy is doing good, we are both getting stronger every day. We are just taking it one day at a time. We know we are going to make it.” Taylor also revealed that young Kennedy wants an iPad for Christmas. Me too! #nosnark

Taylor explains that it is difficult for her to watch this season unfold knowing how everything plays out in the end. She admits, “It’s difficult watching the show because we taped it so long ago. But I do get to see other people’s perspectives so I understand them better. But it’s difficult doing reality TV because you experience the drama in your life when you are experiencing it and then when you watch it months later on TV you re-live it.” And then you keep doing interviews about, thus reliving it again, and again, and again.

On the most recent episode, Taylor and Russell were turned away at the door of Kyle Richards’ annual white party. No hard feelings, according to Taylor. Really? Not one to burn the bridge with her strongest, and perhaps only, ally hold grudges, Taylor shares that she’s remained close with most of her cast mates. She reveals, “We are all pretty good about keeping in touch. I talk to Kyle the most because we live close to each other and our kids play with each other. I see her a lot. I saw Lisa [Vanderpump] the other night.” So the ladies are still socializing — nothing skips a beat in Beverly Hills, it seems!

Taylor also takes the opportunity to promote her upcoming autobiography discuss her latest project which is near and dear to her heart. She hopes her book, which will be released on February 7, 2012 (she must write fast!), will serve as a catalyst to help others discuss the sensitive and extremely important subject of domestic violence. “I want my book to inspire people to talk about [abuse] — to make it a conversation, because if it’s not talked about, there can be no change,” explains Taylor.

Radaronline.com also reports that the reality star wants to prioritize her life before she hits the dating scene. While volunteering for the 1736 Family Crisis Center, Taylor told Star Magazine, “I’m learning to love myself. I’m OK being by myself and just being a mom.”

Taylor reveals that a new romance isn’t in the cards yet for her, as she’s focusing her efforts elsewhere, continuing, “I’ve got to make sure that my little girl is in the best place possible before anything else. I am having a blast with my little girl. I need some Taylor time for now.”

Also on her agenda is bringing more awareness to abuse victims. “I have a domestic violence background from my childhood,” Taylor explains. “The subject is something that is very near and dear to me.”

WHY DO YOU THINK IT’S DIFFICULT FOR TAYLOR TO WATCH THE CURRENT SEASON OF RHOBH? DO YOU BELIEVE SHE’S MENDED FENCES WITH THE LADIES? WILL YOU BE BUYING HER NEW BOOK? THOUGHTS ON HER DATING AGAIN?

HAPPY HOLIDAYS, SAFE TRAVELS, AND BEST WISHES TO ALL OUR WONDERFUL RT READERS! :)

Last night on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the power of an email haunts Kyle’s infamous White Party. Aaaahhh… The white party. The party of parties of parties. Known throughout the BH as the fete of the year. It’s dashing, it’s whimsical — it’s a slew of wealthy ladies in sequined bed sheets berating each other! Just another Beverly Hills evening, nothing to see here folks!

Things start out with Adrienne breezing into Paul’s office to regale him with the story of litigious emails. Apparently after Camille outed Taylor’s claims to the world, Taylor raced back home and told Russell that Camille has been spilling lies and Russell dashed off his version of a pleasant email to Camille and threatened to sue her for “false and slanderous remarks that could damage his business.”

Adrienne sums it up thusly: “Friends don’t sue friends. Or threaten to sue friends.” Perhaps this is how you figure out who your real friends are in the ol’ BH. If you don’t get slapped with a lawsuit or a sis and desis you’re besties!

In the world of Beverly Hills, people have some real problems… not just the regular petty problems you and I have. I mean, if you suffer from Beverly Hills problems sometimes your friend and neighbor will accept an invitation to have her daughter’s over-the-top bachelorette party at a rival Vegas hotel and casino, when you yourself own a perfectly nice one for those type of events. The nerve!

Then, if your issues are really severe, said friend may get upset that you’re angry over casino-gate ’11 and insult your luxury shoe line.  Hopefully she won’t go as far to create her own competing line of stilettos, because let’s be honest, if that’s the case you should just pack it up and move to the Midwest. #realpeopleproblems!

You may have guessed I’m referring to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills former friends who live just a mile and a half driveway away from one another, Adrienne Maloof and Lisa Vanderpump.  When Lisa’s daughter Pandora accepted an invitation to have her pre-wedding party at somewhere other than Adrienne’s Palms Hotel and Casino, the bad blood between the former bev-hi-biffles began.  The drama only escalated when Lisa referred to Adrienne’s swanky show line as the “Maloof hoof” and promised to launch the “Vander-pump,” which will debut next year.

Star Magazine’s Radaronline.com is reporting that the ladies are no longer cooking chickens together… in fact they aren’t even speaking.  A source tells Star, “Now that the show is airing and they’re both finding out what was said behind each other’s backs, they’re both furious.”  It seems that the women “absolutely hate each other,” cites the insider.

The source continues, “Now, they’re never together unless they have to be for the show.  The friendship is done.”  Say it isn’t so!  I thought these ladies were such a hoot together… and the two of them totally encompass the ridiculously lavish lifestyles we want to see when tuning into the show.

Just so we won’t forget about her Adding her two cents about the ladies’ squabble, newbie cast mate and Adrienne pal Brandi Glanville gave a statement to RumorFix.com.  The whole situation like, OMG, totally sucks, according to Brandi who reveals, “There is a lot of tension between the two of them. It bums me out because they both are so great.”  Man, now I’m bummed out too!

She muses, “It’s hard for some of these women to share the spotlight and remember they are on a show with an ensemble cast and there isn’t just one star. There is room for both of them to be loved.”  Brandi makes a very good point… it’s too bad the ladies rarely listen to her.

Here’s hoping the ladies are able to air-kiss and make up soon.  They are much stronger together — and we viewers need their strength to make sure the franchise isn’t turned into “The Taylor Show,” as things quickly seem to be spiraling in that direction!

Taylor Armstrong was interviewed by Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Access Hollywood, answering questions about the program and chatting about getting her life back together. Lather, rinse, repeat.

As to whether she’ll be returning to the hit Bravo series, Taylor screamed, “Yes!  Yes!  Will they have me?  I lurve you, Andy Cohen!” stated, “We’re gonna see. We haven’t been picked up for a third season, so were gonna see how the year plays out.”

Taylor isn’t as concerned about her future on the show as she is about dealing with her estranged husband’s suicide.  Of Russell Armstrong’s tragic death, she reveals, “I spend sleepless nights trying to figure it all out.  I haven’t been able to put all the pieces together, but I think there were some bigger things at play… I’m gonna talk about a lot of it later.”

When asked if she would make her declaration on the show, Taylor replies, “No, just in life.”  I’m slightly worried about what that will entail. A twenty-four hour Taylor network?

She goes on to explain that sometimes the emotional turmoil becomes too much for her to handle. “Sometimes I’m just curling my hair and I start to bawl. It just comes out of nowhere. I’m just keeping myself busy to avoid feeling a lot of it… Sometimes you just break down and cry,” Taylor admits.

Of dating, Taylor is adamant that it’s not time yet. She says,“I’m not ready, I just need to focus on me and Kennedy and my friends. I’m just trying to get strong as a woman and sell my book.” Okay, so I may have added that last part.

While Taylor won’t be ringing in the new year with a special someone, she will be hosting an Ciroc Vodka/Bravo sponsored fete in Chicago to welcome 2012; while other Housewives will be attending similar events in New York, L.A., Miami and Houston.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF LISA AND ADRIENNE’S FEUD?  IS ONE OF THEM IN THE RIGHT, OR ARE THEY BOTH JUST BEING PETTY?  THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR’S INTERVIEW?
