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.
Popular Bravo housewives Lisa Vanderpump and Nene Leakes were both on hand to help the network celebrate it’s first and fingers crossed lastNew Year’s Eve Party last Friday, and for some reason, no one is talking about the little tiff that occurred between the two housewives. But it’s a slow news day so we’ll talk about it!
Lisa told Nene she had heard her diss her franchise by stating all the women had too much plastic surgery. Lisa stated she found Nene’s comments to be hypocritical considering Nene had gotten a nose job, boob job and liposuction this year alone.
Nene immediately looked none too pleased with Lisa and adamantly denied ever saying those things. Nene then went on to add that she would never say such a thing about the Beverly Hills ladies because she thinks “they are boring.” Lisa looked a bit stunned as she tried to stick up for her show, stating the dinner from hell episode was far from boring. Nene disagreed calling it “wack.”
The little tiff ended and Nene appeared to give Lisa the cold shoulder for the remainder of the show. Unfortunately the footage has yet to appear online but if anyone comes across it, feel free to post the link in the comments section.
And the story gets even better as it turns out Lisa was right. Nene did indeed utter those words about the Beverly Hills Housewives. In fact, we at Reality Tea blogged about this back on February 26, 2010. Nene’s comments were made as rumors were swirling about the yet to be confirmed Beverly Hills franchise. Bravo wouldn’t officially confirm the news until weeks later.
Nene told FoxNews back then, “If they do the Beverly Hills Housewives, they’ll probably be all plastic – big lips, fake tits, tummy tucks.” Yikes, Guess Nene didn’t think Lisa was paying attention.
Other highlights of the show included Tamra Barney making out with Andy Cohen at midnight, Jeff Lewis teasing Kim Zolciak about pretty much everything, Ellen Barkin calling in drunk, Jenni Pulos debuting her new rap, and of course the wedding between Giggy and Grandma Wrinkles. Grandma Wrinkles refused to sign a prenup by the way. Can you blame her?
Jeff Lewis also tweeted the following after the show – “Still recovering from NYE. WWHL camera didn’t catch @KimZolciak throwing her drink on me after my off color comment. I probably deserved it.”
So, Nene and Lisa are the favorites of their franchises according to our polls bringing us to the question of the day…
TELL US – TEAM LISA/GIGGY OR TEAM NENE? SHOULD BRAVO AIR ANOTHER NYE SPECIAL THIS YEAR?
According to TMZ, Kelsey has formally asked a judge to grant the divorce decree asap! The legal process is apparently called “bifurcation.” Kelsey is requesting his divorce be rushed and for the money issues aka division of assets to be dealt with later.
Under California law, divorces can become final 6 months after the petition is filed. Since Camille filed on July 1, 2010, Kelsey will be free to marry his mistress fiance Kayte Walshon Saturday, January 1, that is if the judge grants his request for the bifurcation.
So how does Camille, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, feel about this? A friend of Camille’s tells TMZ she “is not surprised but continues to be disappointed at Kelsey’s immature and disrespectful behavior.”
In other BH news, TMZ is also reporting that Lisa Vanderpump was involved in an attack on Christmas eve. It all started when Lisa, her husband Ken Todd, Los Angeles news reporter Robert Kovacik and some others were having dinner at the Beverly Hills Polo Lounge when a drunk man walked up to her table and began berating her.
Reporter Robert then stood up and asked the man to stop, which led to the man punching Robert and shoving Lisa’s husband Ken to the floor. Robert reportedly received two dozen stitches for his busted lip from Dr. Paul Nassif, who also stars on the RHOBH. TMZ adds that Robert has since filed criminal charges against his assailant.
No word yet on if Giggy’s innocent eyes were forced to witness the attack. And finally, Kyle Richards, along with her family, spent the Christmas holiday visiting Aspen. Even more interesting, it seems Kyle is still BFFs with Faye Resnick despite the strong protest from her frenemy costar/morality police Camille. Kyle and Faye were photographed yesterday shopping in Aspen. Those photos are below -
SO TELL US – STILL NOT FEELING BAD FOR CAMILLE YET? NOT EVEN A TEENY BIT?
On the new episode titled ‘Charity Cases,’ Kyle’s seemingly idyllic marriage is challenged when the couple debate about taking the children along on a romantic excursion to Napa Valley for a charity bike race. The charity theme continues when Taylor reflects on a past charity poker tournament. It’s also in the cards that a twist in Camille’s marriage will come to light.
Meanwhile, while it seems 99.9899% of Bravo fans hate Camille Grammer, she still appears to have the support of some of her fellow housewives.
“Kelsey Grammer engaged?….did I miss something? Don’t you think you should get divorced first?” tweeted Lisa. She then added: “Just take one step at a time…like a game of chess,that way fewer mistakes and no regrets.”
Also on Team Camille is her good friend and co-star Taylor Armstrong. In an interview with PEOPLE magazine, Taylor spoke highly of Camille. “She’s a very strong woman and she’s going to be fine,” said Taylor. “She’s doing a fantastic job of managing everything, and she’s surrounded by people who care about her.”
And when it comes to Camille, 41, dating again, Taylor added that Camille isn’t ready for that yet. “She needs a little more time,” said Taylor. “Right now, Camille just wants to spend time with her kids. Dating would take her away from them, and I don’t think she’s ready for that.” Wondering how Camille will get to spend quality time with her kids with 4 nannies in tow.
Camille has stated in a past interview that she believes Kelsey got her to do the show so that he could cheat while in New York. “Looking back, maybe he wanted to keep me preoccupied in California while he was off having his affair in New York…I think [Real Housewives] was more Kelsey’s agenda,” she told the NY Post back in October.
Watch What Happens Live – The guests tonight will include Taylor Armstrong and Denise Richards.

On the new episode titled ‘My Mansion Is Bigger Than Your Mansion,’ Kyle and Taylor have an intimate lunch as Taylor confides that her marriage isn’t as strong as she would like. In other relationship news, Lisa takes Kim’s request to heart and sets her up with one of her Beverly Hills friends.

In other BH news, Camille Grammer is now doing what every despised reality star does — crying foul over her portrayal on the show.
Camille voices her complaint to OK magazine. “I’m very disappointed in my character. They’ve turned me into a villain and I’m not like that. It’s not me. I can’t even watch myself. I don’t know why they [the producers] are doing that. I guess they needed that character,” she says.
Camille’s costar Lisa Vanderpump however has a different take on things as she feels what viewers are seeing is the real deal. “Personally, I feel that the show is very accurate. They shoot enough footage that they’re going to really portray you how you really are,” states Lisa.
When asked if she liked her portrayal on the show, Lisa answered, “Have I said things I regret? Sure. If a camera crew were following you for four months would you have moments? I’m sure you would have moments of regret.”
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON CAMILLE’S COMMENTS & TONIGHT’S EPISODE?
On tonight’s episode, titled ‘The Art of War,’ still in New York, the women are all reeling over the past evening’s meltdown and Kim continues to add fuel to the fire by refusing to stand up for her sister.

In other BH news that will have you saying holy moly! The Real Estalker is reporting that Lisa Vanderpump and her husband Ken Todd have listed their Beverly Hills mansion for sale. The asking price? An astonishing $29 million!
The home was reportedly purchased by Lisa and her husband back in 2004 for $14 million. It is 15,480 square feet with 7 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. The couple’s master bedroom alone is reportedly 2,500 square feet!
And in an interesting twist, the listing agent is none other than Kyle Richard’s mchottie hubby Mauricio Umansky. Mauricio has created a property website for the home which describes it as sitting on 2 acres, having a tennis court and an “unparalleled wine cellar.”
Lisa and Ken are reportedly selling the home to get something smaller as both of their kids have moved out. No word on if Lisa’s home pet Cedric is included in that price. Photos of Lisa’s mansion below which includes a picture of her closet. See if you can count the number of Hèrmes Birkin bags in there.
