Viewers of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have never felt indifferent towards the resident duck-lipped, wine swilling misfit of Rodeo Drive. No, I'm not talking about Kim Richards. Taylor Armstrong always garners strong feelings from fans of the show. The woman once packed herself in a suitcase for goodness' sake! However, this season, Taylor, while still every bit the train wreck of seasons past, has certainly come into her own.
Taylor is no longer kissing the arses of her wealthy co-stars, and she's even taken to making fun of herself on Watch What Happens Live. Now, she's waxing poetic about her new beau who, as you all remember, was her married attorney John Bluher. Things are looking up for Ms. Hughes!
Is anyone else out there totally over the Adrienne Maloof/Brandi Glanville drama on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? I don't even mind Brandi so much, and I definitely don't think that she should have aired Adrienne's dirty laundry, but I also have to wonder…who goes to such great lengths to keep that a secret? I'm just baffled.
I'm also tired of Kyle Richards trying to win back fans (ain't happen' Splits!) by playing nice. She's going to get a rash if she refrains from pot stirring for any length of time. That said, I applaud her efforts to play nice and straddle the fence (those splits come in handy!), but I don't buy any of her behavior as being sincere.
We'll start with the most disingenuous of this week's Bravo blogs, and we'll end with a candid and sincere interview with Kim Richards about her sobriety. Let's get started, shall we?
What a difference a few seasons can make. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Camille Grammer knows that…perhaps like no other lady in the franchise. Pushed into doing the show by her now ex-husband Kelsey Grammer, we watched awkwardly the first season as her marriage crumbled and she butted heads with her cast mates. Let's just say she didn't make the best impression. She quickly redeemed herself in the second season. Again, I think she may be the only one in the franchise who went from being hated to a fan favorite…we all know it happens the other way around though!
Another housewife from RHOBH who seems to be gaining fandom is Brandi Glanville. She continues to build her brand while thumbing her nose at her ex-husband and his new Twitter-addict bride. Of course, the richest franchise does have some ladies who aren't winning any popularity awards among viewers. The mere mention of Taylor Armstrong's name gets some people's blood boiling…will they be fortunate enough to see her hightail it out of the zip code she worked too hard to gain? Check out some Beverly Hills gossip after the jump!
Last Friday, Taylor finally laid her portion of Russell’s remains to rest at a plot in the Columbarium of Morning Hope section of the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills, CA. “Taylor was due to go through with the ceremony months ago but it was canceled at the last minute. She finally was able to say goodbye last Friday,” a source shares.
Gracious! We haven’t even seen the third season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and already the amount of drama brewing is ridiculous! These women certainly know how to bring it, don’t they?
In light of Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif‘s recent divorce filing, there are several rumors flying around regarding all of the women. Who is friends with whom? Who is drinking a ridiculous amount of expensive booze? Who is having sex in a bathroom at Kyle Richards‘ infamous White Party? Who is planning a cruise? Wait, I think we may know the answers to all of these gems!
O. M. G. Oh. Em. Gee. OMG, OMG, OMG. I thought I’d heard it all when I learned that RHONJ’sTeresa Giudice would be “hosting” her own cruise. Imagine my shock when I find out that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’Taylor Armstrong has also secured her own vacation destination…if that destination is a ship that sets sail for the warmer weather. So, let me get this straight…when your reality television fan base retreats, the next best thing is to host a week long party on an ocean liner? Consider me schooled.
Taylor is the newest housewife to dig her claws into the cruise ship craze. Wait, can I actually call it a ‘craze’ given that Teresa is the only other housewife from Bravo’s franchise to venture into these uncharted marketing waters? When did a meet and greet not become enough? Seriously? Who is so narcissistic that they think their fans will pay out the wazoo to vacay with them on a ship when the chances of actually seeing them are slim to none? I don’t know…but I’ll be right back, because I am totally booking this shiz RIGHT NOW for entertainment’s sake. Wait, does that make me part of the problem?
Yesterday it was announced that after ten years of marriage and three children Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif had decided to separate. Adrienne confirmed the news with a statement and now it appears things are moving quickly!
TMZ reports that yesterday morning Paul filed for joint primary and physical custody of the couple’s children and cites “irreconcilable differences” as the primary means for separation. Paul also wants each party to pay their own attorney’s fee. According to the documents, there is a prenup between the two.
Quick! Somebody call the press! Oh, wait…I am pretty sure cameras were there to capture something that we have never, ever seen in the history of Bravo–or, more specifically, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills franchise. To what am I referring? You may want to sit down. You’re certainly going to need a minute to recoup. And you’re most definitely not going to believe me.
Here it is…this year, on Sunday, July 1st, Kyle “Table Splits” Richards hosted her annual White Party. She’s quite the Diddy, you know. Anyhoo, (are you sitting down?) word on the pearly white streets is that there was no drama, I repeat, NO DRAMA at said party this year. I know. I am as shocked as you are. Take a moment. I believe the first year we were introduced to Kyle’s White Party, she yelled at a woman for hitting on her husband. Not shockingly, Camille Grammer also showed up with a snarky etiquette book for her former nemesis. Of course, who can forget last year, when Taylor and Russell Armstrong after Russell threatened to sue Lisa Vanderpump? White party = drama. Always.
