Real Housewives of Beverly Hills


Last week’s brutal segment of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion left several of the ladies reeling – particularly Lisa Vanderpump, who found herself to be under attack from supposed friend, Adrienne Maloof. After rumors claimed Adrienne had planned on conspiring against Lisa, the ladies spent the better part of the last week pretending that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Taking to her Bravo blog, Lisa claims she is still emotional over her experience at the reunion. Poor Lisa describes the experience as traumatic, stating she is “still at a loss for words,” after watching it again. “It certainly looked the way it felt and I have no words to describe it,” Lisa says.

Lisa is calling the other ladies out for their horrific high school behavior! “We have seen the tea party, seen game night, and I understand that is how these women roll,” she snips. “But it’s not OK to accuse somebody viciously or to sit there silently as you watch a friend who is under attack for hours. That speaks volumes, and I for one don’t want any part of it.” I wonder how Kyle Richards is going to explain her actions on that one!

“I am not going to say anymore,” Lisa writes. “It is what it is, and I will bounce back,” adding that she may have put too much faith in certain people. Lisa admits, “I would question my own judgment.” Ouch!

Adrienne is also speaking out about the reunion and she admits she may have crossed the line, but reminds us she is only human. “Over the last two years, you have seen me in some great moments and in some tough ones. The one thing that has always worked for me is to be straight up,” Adrienne explains in her Bravo blog. “It’s not always an easy choice to just lay things on the line, especially when you’re telling someone you care about that you feel hurt or vulnerable because of their actions.”

“Please remember you only see a fractional portion of our lives and our relationships. There were moments occurring behind the scenes as well that were causing hurt feelings amongst all of the ladies.”

Adrienne explains that she believed the issues between the ladies were not “irrevocable” so she decided confronting them head on would be the best way to find a resolution. Perhaps that’s where the planned attack rumor came from… “I felt that clearing the air was worth it, for all of us. This is an amazing group of women who are far better off enjoying each other’s company than fighting.”

“This was something that I considered to be a minor bump in the road, and I expected we’d move on from all of this once we talked about it,” Adrienne writes. “Ultimately, those who know me also know that resolution was always my goal.”

“What I have taken from all of this is that maybe my approach was too direct in this situation, and in the future there will be times when a softer approach is a better idea,” she admits.

And Adrienne is adamant that she cares about Lisa and hopes to move forward. “I value my friendship with Lisa, and I’m looking forward to moving on in a positive direction with all of my fellow ‘Wives — who I truly think are brilliant, talented, and beautiful.” I”m happy Adrienne so readily admitted she was wrong. Good for her.

Moving right along to media queen Kyle, who scarcely goes a day without talking to the press. Kyle appeared on Geraldo at Large last week with friend Faye Resnick where Geraldo asked her all about her experiences on RHOBH – including her opinion on Russell Armstrong‘s suicide.

Kyle again reiterated that the show is “not scripted” and admits she has misgivings and regrets associated with her decision to appear on reality TV.

Geraldo wondered if the ladies knew how bad Taylor Armstrong‘s marriage was, to which Kyle answered, “Yes.” Kyle explained the ladies pretended not to know and tried to ignore it in front of the cameras fearing how Russell would react if he was aware that Taylor was confiding in her friends about the abuse. Faye explains that Taylor told the ladies “over and over again” about the abuse and even admitted it in the bathroom of a restaurant!

Geraldo also asked if Kyle held Bravo responsible for Russell’s suicide. Kyle believes Russell’s financial issues are the reason he took his life. “No, you know, he was in such deep financial distress,” Kyle said. “Everybody was coming after him, he really got himself into a situation where he couldn’t hide anymore.”

“He owed a lot of money and he was really having a hard time staying afloat,” Kyle added. “Somebody who is abusive, obviously, has issues as it is to begin with.” Faye claims Taylor is still emotionally distraught and feels the loss of Russell “deeply.”

Finally, tonight marks the second episode of the three-part reunion and Brandi Glanville will go head-to-head with Taylor. Brandi speaking for most of America takes issue with some of Taylor’s behaviors throughout the season and following Russell’s suicide. She also readily admits that she told Lisa the other women talk about her, which leaves Adrienne speechless! A clip is below!

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Part Two airs tonight on Bravo at 9/10c.

THOUGHTS ON LISA’S REACTION TO THE REUNION? DO YOU BELIEVE ADRIENNE CONSIDERS LISA A FRIEND? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KYLE AND FAYE’S INTERVIEW?

CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON FOR A PREVIEW OF TONIGHT’S EPISODE!


Isn’t it fun when middle-aged ladies squabble like 8th grade girls on the playground? I remember those lovely days of junior high when you had no friends, only frienemies, because entertainment consisted of gossiping, bickering, and starting petty fights. Yes, I remember those days like it was yesterday… and sadly I get to relive them through the unnerving antics of the ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

It’s really not their faults; they’re bored, they’re rich, and they’re paid to act a fool, but something tells me SOME of these ladies would act like the eigth grade bully no matter how old they are. Maybe they just didn’t get their fill of it forty years ago. Yes, Kyle Richards and Adrienne Maloof; I’m talking about you!

It all started when a little bird known as Brandi Glanville insisted that Adrienne had gotten the girls of RHOBH together to develop a strategy for taking down the queen bee, one Lisa Vanderpump, at the reunion. They decided on a premeditated attack which included accusing Lisa selling stories to RadarOnline. Brandi claims she and Camille Grammer refused to participate in said behavior, and Brandi witnessed Lisa crying backstage at the reunion because of Kyle and Adrienne’s behavior!

Now whether you’re a Lisa fan or not, it’s pretty obvious that she steers this ship that is known as Housewives and it’s pretty obvious that some people want her job. I blame Andy Cohen‘s obsession with Giggy for Lisa’s rise to power. Anyone who watched Part One of the reunion knows Adrienne went ahead full-force, with Kyle jumping in right behind her, as the two jabbed at Lisa over the most inane of nonsense.

After Kyle learned what people thought of her behavior, she did what she does best – backpedal! Kyle insists no way, no how there was a pre-planned gang up on Lisa! Speaking to LynnNChicago, Kyle insists people have very vivid imaginations.

“I don’t usually respond to rumors but I had to address what Brandi said re planned attack on Lisa. That is 100% NOT TRUE!!,” Kyle declares. And she accuses Brandi of making the whole thing up! “Lisa is my friend and I care about her. We have had our moments like any friends. I have to wonder why Brandi would make that up.”

“On my children’s life, that never happened!,” Kyle asserts. “We would never do that to Lisa, can you imagine how hurt she would be? She’s my friend.” Kyle claims there was no discussion between the ladies prior to the reunion and no plan was put into place to take down Lisa. She calls what viewers perceived as an attack on Lisa as influenced by gossip.

“If you’re looking for it, then that is what you will see.” Kyle said. “When that’s what you have heard in advance, then you’re looking for it to happen.”

“You’re asked in-depth questions and you’re expected to answer,” Kyle explains. “I’m always honest, that is one thing you should know about me, I have always been truthful and I am an honest person.”

Trying to distance herself from the accusations that she was involved in any sort orchestrated front, Kyle calls Adrienne’s complaints about Lisa “petty.”

After learning that Kyle was denying her involvement, Brandi took to Twitter to again to reaffirm that a meeting was planned. “I never spoke to @KyleRichards18 I was asked to meet by Adrienne I didn’t go. Adriennes biz partner said they were going after Lisa! Simple!”

Moving right along, Kim Richards is out of rehab and doing great. And she is eager to return to work! Unfortunately Kim’s family and friends are desperately trying to persuade her to leave reality TV behind – even if it means they have to financially support her! Hey, Rick Hilton has enough money.

“The show has proved to be nothing but humiliating for her,” a source close to the family tells RadarOnline. “She hoped it would be a platform to resurrect her career but that has just not been the case, she comes off as an unstable train wreck.”

The source confirms what rumors have been speculating for months, that Bravo demanded Kim check into treatment or risk getting fired, because they “wanted to make sure nothing bad happens to anyone on their shows.” The source claims this was a response to Russell Armstrong‘s suicide and they were worried about Kim’s potential outcome after a season full of incredibly disconcerting behaviors.

And following her troubling behaviors, Kim is not reaping any of the benefits of starring in a popular reality show! “Kim was hoping it would be a good business move to be on the show, but has not received any lucrative offers like the other women,” the source adds.

Now that Kim’s life is back on track her family does not think she should concentrate on a reality show. “They don’t think it is a good idea, her personality is too fragile.”

“Even though it is her only source of income it just isn’t something they want her to do. Her family is willing to keep supporting financially no matter what,” the source alleges. Does Mauricio know about this plan?

And during the reunion where Kim talked openly about her addiction issues in a taped interview segment, sources say Kyle had a complete meltdown. Apparently the other Housewives believe Kim may not be interested in returning after seeing how she was portrayed this season. “They don’t know if Kim would come back for another season, they think she just might not,” the source says.

Finally, RadarOnline is reporting today that the FBI has identified the person making death threats to Taylor Armstrong via twitter. If you recall, Taylor received some very disturbing threats after a Twitter user threatened to both kidnap her and harm her daughter Kennedy.

However, a source tells Radar the culprit has been identified, adding that the public will be shocked at their identity. “The FBI has identified a suspect that made the threats, they know who it is. The suspect doesn’t live in California, and the public will be shocked to learn who it is. Taylor and Kennedy are safe and secure,” a source close to the situation states.

Interesting. Radar adds that a formal announcement about the suspect as well as what Taylor’s next step will be is expected later today or Friday.

WHO DO YOU BELIEVE: KYLE OR BRANDI? DO YOU THINK KIM WILL RETURN FOR ANOTHER SEASON? SHOULD SHE? THOUGHTS ON THE FBI IDENTIFYING THE PERSON MAKING DEATH THREATS?


Anyone who thought Real Housewives of Beverly Hills would go quietly, was wrong! The reality show is filled to the brim with drama on and off the screen and the fallout from the Part One of the epic reunion has been massive; with the stars fighting acrylic nail and extension to clear their good-ish names!

In response to the hotly contested footage of this season’s story, Taylor Armstrong has found herself maligned by fans and accused of exactly what Cedric infers below. While I do not believe Taylor goaded Russell into taking his own life, I do believe there is doubt to many of her claims and I do think she has handled his death irresponsibly and with little regard to his children – including the daughter they shared.

It is apparent that many fans feel similarly and some have taken it to a whole new level. Following the reunion Taylor was the recipient of several death threats through Twitter from a follower known as Hardboiledpeggs.

“See u on February 7 ill be there with a book and a rope so i can kidnap u,” @Hardboiledpeggs wrote. Taylor responded with,”Don’t ever contact me again.” The user persisted, this time involving Taylor’s daughter, Kennedy! “Turn around bright eyes every now and then, Kennedy’s dead,” the clearly deranged user threatened. A screenshot of the Tweets is below. They are truly disgusting!

The Twitter user @hardboiledpeggs has since been deleted. No one was harmed and so far the threats have been baseless, however Taylor is rightfully taking this very seriously and contacted the authorities.

“Taylor absolutely freaked out when she read the death threats. These were credible serious threats against Taylor and her daughter, Kennedy. The Tweets that were sent to Taylor have been turned over to the FBI,” a law enforcement source reports to RadarOnline. “Taylor is assisting the FBI with the investigation, and she wants the person responsible for the the threats prosecuted.”

“Taylor will be consulting with security professionals and assess what changes she needs to increase,” the source adds. “Her first concern when she got the threats was Kennedy, but her daughter is safe, and that is all that matters to Taylor. She will do whatever is necessary to protect herself and Kennedy.”

Increased security will also be present at Taylor’s February 7th book signing in NJ to ensure the safety of both herself and other fans.

Moving on as discussing the tumultuous first part of the reunion is RHOBH’s most notorious hanger-on, the sometimes nefarious, often unbelievable Cedric Martinez. He really needs to move on already, doesn’t he? Cedric is giving his two-cents about what happened and claiming his version of the truth. My advice – take it with a grain of salt, but some of it rings true!

Releasing a statement to Reality Tea through his publicist, Cedric admits his famewhoring predilections and he isn’t ashamed! “YES, I am a fame whore,” Cedric exclaims “But there is a huge difference between someone like me, pursuing opportunities on reality TV (and exposing the lies and viciousness of reality stars) versus people like Lisa [Vanderpump] and Taylor [Armstrong], who exploit opportunities on reality TV by lying about, and misrepresenting themselves and others.”

And with that, here we go! Speaking about the behind the scenes feud between former friends and neighbors Lisa and Adrienne Maloof, Cedric claims there was some veracity to Adrienne’s accusations. “The truth about Lisa’s lies and smear campaigns is right there in front of your eyes. Lisa lurks in the shadows, like a snake on her belly. But with a little effort, you can help me expose the truth…,” Cedric says, lambasting his former friend.

Cedric accuses Lisa of having a relationship with the ‘bloids and exploiting said relationship to garner favorable press. I hate to burst his bubble but almost all celebrities do this to a degree – even A-Listers! “Lisa is technically right when she says she doesn’t SELL stories to the tabloids. She doesn’t. But the truth is not on Lisa’s side… Lisa TRADES stories (on celebrities and the other housewives) for favorable press for herself and her restaurants; and sometimes for negative press about her enemies. I’ve seen her do it hundreds of times. And I have proof.”

Gleefully defending newbie Brandi Glanville, Cedric supports her campaign to expose the nefarious dealings of some of her co-stars, all in an effort to get herself on the show, of course! “You gotta give the girl credit… the other housewives want Brandi off the show, now. But she’s hanging on for dear life by exposing the truth and rattling the other housewives cages. Oh how I wish the lies the producers told about our ‘long-term friendship’ were true.”

“Brandi is a breath of fresh air and, remember, she was the first person to call out Kim [Richards]‘s obvious drug abuse and alcoholism. And she didn’t buy Taylor’s “innocent victim” act for one minute. I’m rooting for Brandi but I’m predicting Lisa and Kyle will use their unbridled power over the weak producers to kick her off the show just like they did to me!” Considering Lisa and Brandi have struck up some sort of a friendship, we’ll have to wait and see!

Cedric’s most shocking and intriguing accusations concern Bravo’s role in Russell Armstrong‘s suicide. “Last night’s RHOBH Reunion episode was very sad. Not because Lisa was getting crushed under the weight of her own lies. That was hilarious! No, it was sad because Bravo, the producers, Taylor, Lisa and Kyle [Richards] once again used the power of a hit TV show to trash the memory of a dead man,” Cedric asserts.

And while Cedric admits that Russell was clearly no saint, he insinuates that both Bravo and Taylor played a role in Russell’s decision and besmirching his memory! Ceddy’s got some cojones! You can read the remainder of his statement below. In order to get the truth out there, Cedric also evokes fans to convince Andy Cohen to book him as a guest on Watch What Happens Live. Somehow I doubt that will happen…

Finally, it was the slander accusation heard round the world, ok, well round the blogosphere as Adrienne accused Lisa of selling stories to RadarOnline, citing a “source” told her. RadarOnline is speaking out in defense of Lisa and denying there is any truth the rumor. They are also defending Adrienne and Camille Grammer, explaining that they really were told that by a source! Luckily it seems the ladies have patched this “misunderstanding” up!

“Don’t blame Adrienne for accusing Lisa, she was told wrong info by person not from Radar,” RadarOnline.com’s Executive Vice President, David Perel, said via Twitter. Adding, “I don’t blame Adrienne at all! Totally not her fault. She was given wrong info.”

Following the shout out in their support, both Lisa and Adrienne thanked Mr. Perel. “Thank you for your support, I know what @TheRealCamilleG and I were told. Moving fwd in a positive direction! xoA” Adrienne Tweeted.

As for the mysterious source who seems to believe Madame Vanderfabulous accepted a whopping $25k in exchange for information (what on earth would be worth that much dough, I wonder?), Radar assures fans they are investigating! “Dealing with it behind the scenes,” Mr. Perel wrote.

DO YOU BELIEVE ANY OF CEDRIC’S CLAIMS? THOUGHTS ON HIS ACCUSATIONS ABOUT BRAVO AND TAYLOR’S INVOLVEMENT IN RUSSELL’S DEATH? DO YOU THINK LISA HAS SOLD STORIES TO THE TABLOIDS?

While Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is coming to an end, the off-screen drama is just beginning for Taylor Armstrong. Just days after a report that Bravo may be looking to give Taylor the axe, citing she is a liability, comes a report claiming Bravo and Taylor’s co-tarts fear they may be dragged into her courtroom drama!

Taylor is the recipient of a $1.5M lawsuit filed by MMRGlobal alleging that she and late husband Russell Armstrong participated in investor fraud and failed to uphold their end of a settlement agreement. Taylor heads to court July 11, 2012.

According to The Huffington Post, Bravo and some of her co-tarts are concerned about “becoming party to the the litigation” and being forced to participate in the court battle. Now that’s some Watch What Happens Live I want to see! What on earth would Adrienne Maloof wear to court? Gold extensions? Ruffles?

Just a little background information: MMRGlobal filed the suit against Taylor and Russell for breach-of-contract claiming he failed to follow the stipulations of a previously reached settlement deal. Russell was the largest shareholder of the then privately held company and was discovered misappropriating investor funds. He was removed from the board and settled with the company for $250,000. Taylor was also forced to sign a settlement agreement since she was found to be an equally involved party in allegedly scheming against investors and diverting shares of the company.

Under the terms of the settlement agreement the Armstrongs were required to identify anyone Russell sold MMRGlobal shares to; however he failed to do so and was subsequently sued by the company. Russell committed suicide shortly after being served with the suit. One of the chief concerns in the lawsuit is the alleged hiding of missing investor monies in an off-shore Cook Island account known as the Taylor Family Trust. Previous investigation revealed Taylor had made several deposits into the account over the years. Much of the money the Armstrongs were accused of misappropriating remains unaccounted for.

Taylor’s defense against the MMRGlobal suit is said to be that she was forced to participate in Russell’s dealings under duress, or, in other words he was abusive towards her and she feared for her safety and that of their daughter. Is it a coincidence that her new memoir, which chronicles the alleged abuse she faced at the hands of her now deceased husband, is hitting shelves months before she heads to trial?

“Where are the millions of dollars that flowed through their bank accounts and pockets? We have no reason to believe that Russell was broke or that Taylor is a victim of Russell without the ability to pay damages to MMR,” asserts MMRGlobal CEO Bob Lorsch.

As for how Taylor’s various legal troubles could involve the network, Bravo employees may have to testify about the network’s financial arrangements with the couple (such as how in the hell she got $6ok to throw a birthday party!) or how much they were earning to participate in the show. As well as if during the course of filming they observed the Armstrongs exhibit any behavior that could be pertinent in case. Bravo, of course, doesn’t want to be seen as responsible for or knowledgeable about any of the Armstrong’s potentially shady business dealings.

In response to the latest legal drama surrounding Lady Armstrong, the NY Daily News is seconding claims that Taylor’s days at Bravo are numbered,  mentioning the recent litigation against her as one of the major reasons Bravo is seeking to end her contract.

“At this point, nobody on the Beverly Hills cast is safe,” a source describes, adding that Taylor and Kim Richards are the top picks to get pink slipped. And it seems Bravo has reached the end of their ropes which scheming, lying frauds trying to infiltrate the Housewives (ahem… Marlo Hampton). NYDN recently got their hands on a 51-page questionnaire the network has been passing out to potential new RHOBH co-tarts.

Among the information Bravo wants to know: “Have you ever been convicted of a felony or a misdemeanor?” and “Have you ever had a restraining order issued against you?” Oh, they also want to know if said person plans to ruin the network’s reputation anymore than they plan to ruin said person, asking if candidates would do “anything that would cause the program producers and/or the cable network and affiliates any embarrassment or monetary loss?”

Speaking of potential new castmates, according to The Huffington Post Bravo has tapped Vanessa Bryant, soon-to-be-ex-wife of basketball legend, Kobe Bryant as a potential new Housewife. Vanessa recently turned down an opportunity to star in Basketball Wives LA.

“She would made a great addition to the cast,” an insider claims. “She is now single and free and doesn’t ever have to worry about earning another dollar in her life, so she can focus on what makes the show so much fun: herself.” I fail to see how she has any relationship to these ladies, given that she doesn’t even live in Beverly Hills, but apparently the network is interested in what she could bring to the table.

Also seen as a potential new addition, Lisa Gastineau, who previously stared on E!’s short-lived reality show Gastineau Girls alongside her daughter Brittny Gastineau, a close friend of Kim Kardashian‘s.

“Lisa is the opposite of Vanessa,” the insider said. “She is the example of how not to get divorces. She has a wonderful life but works very hard to pay her bills and would love to find love again.” Lisa was previously married to NFL player Mark Gastineau and has been linked to such winners as Sylvester Stallone and John Gotti. Once again, I fail to see how she has any relationship to the current ladies.  A photo of Lisa is below!

Moving right along to other possible Bravo fraudsters, days after Brandi Glanville kissed and told during a WWHL appearance that she had a fling with A-List actor Gerard Butler, the actor is denying any such affiliation!  When TMZ caught up with Gerard and asked him what he had to say about the reality star rating his lovemaking skills as an 11 out of 10, Gerald simply responded: “Who’s Brandi Glanville?”

After taking a ton of heat on the Twitter and being accused of making up her Gerard fling, Brandi is firing back telling RumorFix she was totally telling the truth about her hook up!

Claiming Gerard admitted to pretending he didn’t know who she is, Brandi explains, “He called me last night and told me he said it. He is upset because he is a private person. I don’t lie so I don’t really care.” The always classy Brandi followed up by Tweeting, “I don’t lie. He can suck it.” I think he may have already…

“I’m an alcoholic,” are the not so shocking words being uttered by Kim Richards in a newly released clip from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 2 reunion.

Today, Bravo released the first previews for the reunion which will not only be dramatic, but will also be in three parts. While Kim was unable to attend the reunion taping, due to her recent stint in rehab, she did manage to do a sit down interview with Andy Cohen during which she finally admits her drinking problem.

The dramatic preview for the RHOBH 3-part reunion is below. Part I airs Monday, January 30 on Bravo at 9/8c. Part II airs Feb. 6, and Part III airs Feb. 13.

Kim’s substance abuse issues first came to light early last year after her sister Kyle Richards revealed her alcoholism during their big limo fight.

Last week it was reported that Taylor Armstrong was definitely returning for the third season of , but like they say on Project Runway, “One day you’re in, the next day you’re out!”

RadarOnline is reporting that Bravo is seeing the light, listening to the fans and possibly writing Lady Armstrong that severance check!

“Taylor is absolutely freaked out at the possibility of not returning for a third season,” a source reveals. “Even though there has been a ratings bump this season because of the suicide, Taylor knows the criticism she has endured because of the tragedy. Taylor needs this job, she doesn’t have any other source of income, period.”

“She is fearful that producers of the show are going to cut her because she is seen as a liability to the show.” In light of the recent drama surrounding Taylor she may have a point. Additionally, Bravo structured the entire second season of RHOBH around her storyline to great fan dissatisfaction.

Taylor is defending herself against the recent rumors of being fired. “It’s not true,” she told RumorFix. “We have not even been picked up for season three.” While appearing on the Today Show on Tuesday, Andy Cohen announced there will be no cast changes and Bravo has made no decisions about season three. I find that hard to believe in light of the fan reactions to this season!

Finally, Taylor’s memoir Hiding From Reality is due in stores next month and I know y’all are waiting with bated breath to hear what she has to say; so you’re in luck! In order to drum up sales and excitement for the tell-all, Us Weekly is releasing some of the more gory excerpts.

Among her shocking allegations, she insists Russell was going to force her to abort her baby if it wasn’t a girl! “Russell wanted to keep the baby only if it was a girl. Because he already had two boys. At five weeks I took a blood test and mailed in the sample to learn the gender, and fate, of our baby.”

Taylor claims Russell controlled every aspect of her life and she constantly lived in fear of being recorded. “I always assumed I was being recorded in the car and at home,” Taylor’s book reads. “I was always careful to make sure the content of my conversations was very clear.”

The reality star insists her attempts to fight back made matters worse and that Russell’s abuse was calculated. “He would grab my hair and bang my head against the side of the car between the two door. Or against the glass of the passenger window while he was driving, because it made his point to me but didn’t leave a visible mark.”

Asserting that Russell believed he would kill her, Taylor claims he blamed her for his violent outbursts. “Don’t ever do that again because I almost killed you,” Russell reportedly told Taylor. “One of these days I’m afraid I’m going to kill you.”

Taylor realized she needed to leave Russell after his abuse caused her a dislocated cornea that could have left permanent danger. “Hearing that I was in danger of having a lifelong deformity from something that Russell had done to me was enough to finally snap me out of the spell Russell had over me,” she writes. “When my assistant and I got home from my doctor’s appointment, I told her to pack a bag for Kennedy.”

Hiding From Reality: My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding the Courage Within hits stores February 7th — just after RHOBH finishes airing!

IS TAYLOR A LIABILITY FOR BRAVO? WILL SHE BE FIRED? THOUGHTS ON THE SHOCKING ALLEGATIONS SHE MAKES ABOUT HER MARRIAGE?

CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON TO SEE THE DRAMATIC REUNION PREVIEW -


Taylor Armstrong is fond of saying that the ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are like family and the cast is very close; providing an unwavering source of support to each other. New information is now claiming that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Surprised?

Sources have reported that most of the ladies do not spend time together away from filming and even worse, the ladies are starting to distance themselves from Taylor because they question the validity of her domestic abuse claims!

“Taylor told the other women about her abuse, but her stories didn’t match up,” a show insider disclosed to RadarOnline. “They thought that maybe she wasn’t telling the truth about how Russell [Armstrong] was treating her.”

“Each time Taylor would talk about the domestic abuse her story would change, and the ladies started to think that she wasn’t being honest about what was happening,” the insider describes.

“The other Housewives didn’t understand why Taylor would claim that Russell was abusing her but would stay with him and not take care of the problem,” the source said. “They all offered her help to get out of the situation, but she didn’t do anything.” Additionally, the details Taylor shared were always nebulous and inconsistent, which further raised red flags amongst her co-stars.

“Taylor’s stories about the abuse would change and she would amp up the details of the violence so the other women started to doubt any part of her story,” the source continues, explaining that the women believe Taylor exaggerated the claims to add drama to her own life.

And likely to remain integral to the show! Indeed, Taylor was able to garner her own storyline this season, as Bravo focused nearly every event around what was really happening in her troubled marriage. While Taylor may have gotten a lot of attention it wasn’t exactly positive.

Many fans suspected that Adrienne Maloof and Camille Grammer were doubtful about Taylor’s version of events, evident by their treatment of the matter during this season. Perhaps, the fans were right and the ladies suspected all along that something didn’t add up!

Moving right along to another storyline that got a lot of air time; the feud between Kyle Richards and Brandi Glanville! In a new interview with SheKnows.com, Brandi talks about appearing on the show and dealing with Kyle and Kim Richards!

Describing joining the group as “traumatizing,” Brandi explains there is definitely an initiation to join the aging mean girls club. “You have to get jumped into the gang. It was like my initiation.”

“I’m really not a fighter,” Brandi clarified. “I mean I will fight back, but I don’t really start fights. It’s not in me to do it. But don’t mess with me, because I’m crazy.”

Brandi, who only knew Adrienne casually before joining the cast, admits she was totally surprised by the behavior of some of her co-stars. And she compares spending time with the ladies to babysitting! “This is worse than baby-sitting a bunch of kids!,” Brandi laughed. “it was just, like, cray-cray!”

Brandi found herself butting heads with Kyle the most out of all the ladies and the two still have a chaotic relationship. “It’s like going around in circles,” Brandi explained of her up and down friendship with Kyle. “It’s good one day and then it’s bad the next day.”

“Part of me really likes Kyle, and then part of me doesn’t,” Brandi admitted. “If you have that in you, to be that mean, that’s a little bit scary.” Brandi is still reeling from her experience at the infamous game night and she blames Kyle for most of what happened! “Kim can’t really take responsibility for her actions because she wasn’t well at the time,” Brandi explained. “Kyle doesn’t have a problem, so I can’t give her any excuses, except for just bad behavior.”

Regardless of how things ended with Kim this season, Brandi feels the two could “easily start over when she’s in a better space.” Brandi is also happy that Kim has gotten the help she needed. “I was really happy for her family. She’s a mom and everyone cares about her, so obviously there’s some good in her. She just has to get better.”

Brandi admits she doesn’t know how things are going for Kim post-rehab because she hasn’t talked to anyone that would know. She calls the situation a “touchy subject.”

As for some of the positives of joining the show, Brandi reveals she sees Camille “off camera” and also has a good friendship with Lisa Vanderpump, which seemed evident on their recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live!

Brandi claims one reason she really gets along with Lisa is that most of the other ladies are “really sensitive, and there’s no joking!” Where as Lisa and her both have their “minds in the gutter.” As for joking around with the brunette Richards sister, Brandi sums it up as, “I’m not messing with Kyle!” I couldn’t have said it better myself.

As for coming back for a second season, Brandi isn’t committing just yet. “I’m kind of weighing my options right now and deciding if this is the right place for me to be.”  You can catch Brandi’s full interview in the video below!

Last night’s season finale episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills brought us back to the show we know and love with an over-the-top wedding featuring all the trimmings those of us in the real world could never afford. It was beautiful, it was captivating, it was pink, and most importantly, it was drama free! I think it was a perfect season finale — until the last fifteen minutes, which I’ll pretend never happened.

It’s the day before Pandora’s pinksplosion fantasy wedding. As planned, the Vanderfabulous-Todds have converted part of their tennis court into the wedding site complete with a massive white tent that ensconces every surface in dangling crystals. While everything is carrying on as scheduled, Kevin Lee is apparently out of town! Kevin’s assistant is there in his absence and while she lacks Kevin’s bling, bling, she seems far more efficient.

With season two of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills coming to an end tonight, the ladies are dishing left and right about the past season as well as airing their feelings on some of the drama.

Kyle Richards has had quite the dramatic year, from her sister Kim Richards public battle with addiction to her friend Taylor Armstrong claims of domestic abuse, and now the Housewife is speaking out about the dramatic moments from the past season.

“Season two has been very emotional to live through, and to watch it is difficult at times,” Kyle reveals to Celebuzz. “Honestly we did have a lot fun — like Hawaii, we all laughed! Although my sister and I had our moments we did have a lot of fun.”

Kyle explains that certain scenes involving her sister are difficult for her to watch, particularly the discussion they had at last week’s SUR party. “Oh my gosh, it’s so hard for me to watch that. That and the scene where I bumped into my sister at the store. In the reality world it’s rare to have that real moment where you bump in unexpectedly, and we did. [Kim] was there looking for a dress for the opening credits of the show and I happened to bump into her there.”

Kyle goes on to add that Kim hasn’t seen the last few episodes. “The last few episodes my sister isn’t watching. I want her to move forward, not look back. She’s not watching,” Kyle described. Although Kim did watch the episode from Kathy Hilton‘s consignment shop. “She did see that episode, and we both cried. It’s sad.”

Despite all the ups and downs, Kyle is more than willing to sign on for another season. “If it gets picked up, or when, assuming it does, I love these women. We have our moments but I care about all of them.”

And both confirming and disputing certain rumors out there about which ladies are returning for season 3, Kyle claims “As far as I know [the main] women are back. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it!” Well, see the problem is that the show is broken and needs to be fixed, so hopefully the fans will get their wish and some changes will be made!

Moving right along, Lisa Vanderpump had an expected, unexpected guest for the launch of SUR when Cedric Martinez arrived supposedly uninvited. After the episode aired Cedric spoke out claiming Bravo had arranged the party “crash” and Lisa was well-aware he would be making an appearance. Cedric provided emails proving producers were involved in the plotting and released them to the media.

Whether Lisa knew or not (or didn’t have an option to contest, given her contract), she is speaking out calling Cedric’s media blitz “disgusting.” Lisa is appalled by Cedric’s repeated pleas for attention via tabloids and interviews; wondering how a person who lived in her home and was like a son to her “keeps going and going — there’s something new every week … ”

“I don’t understand it. It sickens me that he sinks to that level,” Lisa tells RumorFix. Lisa also adamantly denies Cedric’s assertions of her husband Ken Todd‘s affairs and a secret love child. “I’ve been married for 30 years and we’re really, really happy. I love my husband and I’m just sick of these continual attacks.”

And of Cedric’s rumored tell-all book, which is said to contain salacious details about the Vanderpump-Todd family, Lisa claims she has no interest interest in insulting Cedric back. “I never hit back — I never said anything negative. It is what it is and I’ve moved on.”

Following last week’s episode, which featured an ill-advised therapy session, Adrienne Maloof, the level-headed, crazy-haired Housewife is discussing Taylor and the Sisters Richards bizarre dynamic, via her Bravo blog.

“Having brothers, it’s very interesting for me to see the dynamic between Kyle and Kim. With my brothers and I there is more light-hearted teasing, and we’re competitive when it comes to business or sports. The one thing that is absolutely the same though is the love,” Adrienne describes.

“I’ve known Kyle and Kim for quite some time, and I’ve seen them in their moments of joy as well as those moments we saw in Hawaii. I understood Kyle’s frustration with Kim missing so many events — when you love someone you want to share the great moments. There is a sense of regret in not sharing those moments and I know Kyle didn’t want her sister to miss out on the fun.”

Describing the opening of SUR as “very stressful” because of the many “heart-to-hearts,” Adrienne wonders if that was really the appropriate time or place. “I don’t think you ever get dressed up and go to an event expecting it to turn into a therapy session in a back room!,” she exclaims.

Also, revealing her reason for insisting Taylor apologize to Camille Grammer, Adrienne stands by her decision to call Taylor out. “I thought Taylor needed to be accountable for the position she put her friends in. You want to support your girlfriends, but it’s difficult when you’re being threatened with litigation as a result,” Adrienne explained.

“However she did admit that and I admire her being candid and forthright about her role. It was an emotional rollercoaster for all involved. Ultimately she has my support as she gets back on her feet, and I wish her much happiness in her life moving forward.”

Finally, as I am sure you are all aware tonight is the season finale! Though according to whispers, last week’s episode was originally supposed to be the finale. Bravo, however, decided to add one more episode following Russell‘s passing.

Tonight’s finale means we only have the reunion to dread look forward to before putting the most depressing, unenjoyable season in Housewives history behind us. On tonight’s episode Pandora ties the knot and the ladies visit with Taylor collectively for the first time Russell Armstrong‘s suicide.

You can watch a preview for tonight’s episode below!

The season finale of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs tonight on Bravo at 9/10c.

DO YOU BELIEVE KYLE IS REMORSEFUL FOR THE WAY THIS SEASON PLAYED OUT CONCERNING KIM? DOES LISA HAVE A RIGHT TO BE DISGUSTED BY CEDRIC, OR IS SHE JUST UPSET HE INFORMED THE MEDIA ABOUT BRAVO’S INTENT FOR LAST WEEK’S EPISODE? WAS ADRIENNE RIGHT TO DEMAND AN APOLOGY FROM TAYLOR?
