I feel like there is a giant math equation regarding how much gossip we hear about the show in proportion to the ratio of time a housewives franchise has been on the air divided by the amount of certified crazies in the cast and then taken to the third power of the square root of how many on-air divorces occur multiplied by the number of husbands we think could potentially be cheating. It's like E=MC² up in here!
Given all of those mathematical conundrums, it only makes sense we'd be hearing a lot the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills at the moment. We've got the crazies, we've got the divorces, and I have some suspicions about some of those husbands! First up, we've got Brandi Glanville engaging in yet another Twitter war with home wrecker (don't sue me!) LeAnn Rimes and more news on the Adrienne Maloof front.
Adrienne Maloof and Brandi Glanville have been at each other's throats since last year's reunion. And things are about to explode staring with tonight's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills episode. The former friends (Adrienne reportedly got Brandi cast for the show!) get into an argument over Adrienne's marital problems.
“Adrienne and Brandi get into a HUGE fight about Adrienne and Paul [Nassif]’s marriage,” an insider dishes to NY Daily News.
Apparently the fight began over Adrienne misrepresenting herself to cameras – including behaving as if her marriage was fine while the entire cast knew things were very rocky between Adrienne and Paul!
“Adrienne has been very controlling about what she allows the cameras to film because she wants to project a certain image of having the perfect life,” the insider explains.
know what they say…if you're not being featured on every episode of a reality show, the best thing you can do is make the media rounds so people either A) don't forget about you, or B) (in the case of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' "star" Marisa Zanuck) know who you are before you're ever seen on the small screen. We won't see Marisa until the eighth episode of RHOBH (yes, you read that correctly…THE EIGHTH!! That's not even a friend of a housewife, is it Dana Wilkey?), but she's bombarding our favorite blogs with controversial interviews. I may just like her.
You may recall Marisa has already talked smack about Real Housewives of New Jersey'sTeresa Giudice and revealed that Lisa Vanderpump is nice…when the cameras are rolling. Now, she's talking about how awful her co-star Taylor Armstrong is. The lady is all about making friends, isn't she? Not that I blame her…with the exception of my pink puff of fabulousness known as Jiggy's mom, I think she's probably spot-on with her personality perceptions.
Adrienne claimed her six-year-old son Christian had several broken fingers after being with Paul and she not only took him to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, but she involved LA Child Services to investigate the matter!
According to TMZ, Adrienne told doctors the injuries were sustained when Paul and their son were "playfully kicking each other" and then Paul pushed Christian to the ground causing the injuries.
Sources tell TMZ that once the money matter was settled, the parties agreed to dissolve their marriage no problem! Apparently the secret sauce to working things out was getting extended families involve. Both Paul's brother Chris Nassif and Adrienne's brother Joe Maloof led the pair through financial mediation so no one felt they were getting screwed.
The former couple released a joint statement today:
"We're happy to announce we have reached agreement on a settlement. There has been so much untrue negative innuendo and destructive rumors beyond our control … We want the best for each other and we're confident we can help each other make a continuing positive impact with our children. Our goal is for our children to have stable and nurturing relationships with both of us so we can all find as much happiness as possible. We appreciate the good wishes we continue to receive from our supporters around the world."
If there's one word that isn't in Brandi Glanville's vocab, it would have to be "sugar-coated". One of the things I adore about Brandi's sassy style is that she just says whatever is on her mind. She doesn't worry about being PC, nor does she care that others will get ticked at her. Brandidoesn't hide a single thought.
A perfect example is her most recent interview. Brandi let it all hang out – addressing her issues withTaylor Armstrong and Adrienne Maloof, explaining how hard it was to get used to the craziness of the show and more!
Brandi says that the drama on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is the real deal. Including the infamous "Games Night" episode last year when Kim Richards hid her crutches. Brandi says nobody could help her out of that situation. "I’m still scarred from that night. When I watch that scene, I get knots in my stomach, because I remember how horrible it was. I was crying at one point (during filming), and I remember one of the producers—you can’t break the wall, but there are producers everywhere—and I was like, I just want to leave, can someone get my crutches? And his face, he couldn’t do anything. I wasn’t used to it yet, so I didn’t know, like, no one could do anything. I was like, get me the f*** out of here."
Gracious alive, those women from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have more money than they know what to do with! When they're done installing five-star spas into guest houses, purchasing 10,000 square foot vacation homes, and buying a fleet of private jets, what do they do with the extra money? Do they bathe in it? Set it on fire and laugh? Use it as toilet paper? I am just so enthralled.
All of the women on this franchise are rich beyond my wildest imagination, but given recent and past turmoil, it just goes to show that money can't buy you happiness. It also can't prevent one from having to go through awful experiences. I think I'll stay comfortably poor, a-thank-you-very-much!
Today's RHOBH news focuses on Adrienne Maloof who is going through a contentious divorce with plastic surgeon husband Paul Nassif, as well as housewife newbie Yolanda Foster who has endured several health scares in the past. None of it is pretty, and it makes me very thankful for my meager lifestyle.
