Russell Armstrong

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?


According to a bizarre report, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong watched a video depicting abuse and taped the reaction for her personal website.

Radar Online is reporting that Taylor, who has alleged she was abused by now deceased husband Russell Armstrong, recently watched the viral video of a Texas judge beating his cerebal palsy- stricken daughter for illegally downloading music on the Internet, all while filming her reaction.

The reason? According to sources, Taylor was simply viewing the video to confront her fears about abuse. Taylor has claimed she grew up in an abusive household. Her psychiatrist, Dr. Charles Sophy, was reportedly with her while she viewed the video.

A source goes on to explain why Taylor decided to tape her reaction. “Taylor wanted to confront her fears about domestic violence, and she had heard so much about the judge beating his daughter. She filmed it for it to be released on her website to educate women about domestic violence,” reveals a source.

“Taylor was absolutely gutted watching the video. She cried, and she got very, very angry. She saw herself in the judge’s daughter, vulnerable and unable to fight back. Taylor thought it took tremendous courage for Hillary to film the brutal beating, and to finally release it. Taylor kept saying that could have been my daughter Kennedy. Even though Russell never laid a hand on their daughter, there was no guarantee that if he had lived, he wouldn’t have done that,” adds the source.

Taylor reportedly plans on posting her reaction to the video on her website around the same time her book will be released. Taylor’s tell-all memoir Hiding From Reality, My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding The Courage Within, is slated to be released in February, 2012.

Allrighty, moving on to a recent interview given by Taylor in which she opens up about her struggles during the past year.

Talking to the Hollyscoop blog this week while she was doing some charity work, Taylor admits she has had a rough year. “We’re just continuing with our holiday tradition,” said Taylor. “Obviously things are different for us but at the same time you know really blessed to have a lot of support.”

Taylor was also asked about her behavior on the current season of the RHOBH which involves constantly lashing out at her costars. “This has been a really tough year for me,” Taylor says of her behavior. “And I think people are figuring out why, but at the same time that was my reality at the time and I’m certainly not proud of all of it but all I can do is move on.”

Despite everything, Taylor reveals she is trying to keep things positive for 5-year-old daughter Kennedy by “just letting her be a kid.” “We just went out and got our tree and we have the whole house decorated and just letting her be a kid,” she told Hollyscoop. “We’re going to have our family over and… being here it really helps me to remember to be thankful for all the support that we have.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR TAPING HER REACTION FOR HER WEBSITE? DO YOU BELIEVE SHE’S TRULY REMORSEFUL FOR HER BEHAVIOR?


Last night on Real Housewives of Beverly Buzz Kills it was more of the same: Taylor whining, Kim freaking out, Kyle seeking attention and everyone else trying to act like the reality world isn’t imploding. It was nice to see some fun and fluff with Pandora’s bachelorette party, but that was about the only bright spot in this morose wasteland of the rich, the wannabe rich, and the completely depressing.

Things start out with new Beverly besties Lisa and Taylor meeting for lunch. Lisa just wants to help Taylor. Taylor just wants to ensnare a kind-hearted Lisa in her web of lies and deceit now that Camille is wise to her game. Taylor downplays the disaster at Malibu beach as if she were just a girl who had too many drinks and acted a little cray-cray instead of being one step away from Beverly Mental Hospital. Was anyone else distracted by Taylor’s brows?

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was just – sad, and it’s hard to know what to think. I was expecting a welcome break from the trauma (not to be confused with drama), but my hopes were dashed as the Taylor show came crashing into us harder than Malibu waves. Which reminds me, according to Bruce Jenner’s bespangled and fabulous ex-wife Linda Thompson, the ocean is going to be there long after all of us are gone, so I probably shouldn’t get too worked out about the problems of Housewives.

Anyway things started out on a truly lovely note with Wedding Planner to the Insane Kevin Lee organizing some tablescapes for Lisa and Pandora to choose from – well really Lisa, because after all it’s her wedding!

The ladies were excited, gracious and truly wowed, and after doing some finagling and maneuvering around they put their stamp of approval on the over-the-top fabudiculous arrangements (I made up a new word. Call me Teresa Giudice).

On the last episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, viewers saw costars Lisa Vanderpump and Adrienne Maloof bicker over which high end luxury hotel should have hosted the bachelorette party for Lisa’s daughter — a.k.a. Rich People Problems!

Adrienne particularly took offense to the fact that Lisa didn’t ask her if she would host Pandora Vanderpump’s bachelorette party at her Palms hotel in Vegas so that she can get free promotion for her business on national television! Adrienne decided to confront Lisa during her event, and Lisa did not back down, making it clear the owner of Planet Hollywood was a family friend and that the decision to have the bachelorette party there was her daughter’s.

In her latest Bravo blog, Lisa fires back at Adrienne, hinting that Adrienne’s only concern was promoting her own hotel. Lisa also feels the whole argument was ridic stating she doesn’t question Adrienne whenever she chooses to dine at other restaurants in Beverly Hills.

Lisa wrote: “Apparently [Adrienne] was miffed that Pandora had decided to hold her bachelorette party at our old family friend Robert Earl’s venue, Planet Hollywood . Robert loves her and had no intention of promoting the hotel. I mean, how dare my daughter choose what she wants? She should be supporting her mother’s neighbor’s business! I seriously couldn’t understand this. It was the first I knew of her being upset. Jason had had his bachelor party a couple of weeks before, hosted by our friend, and Pandora was going to do the same. It was all arranged. I wasn’t going and hadn’t been involved in the arrangements.”

Lisa continued, “Somehow, to cut a long story short, I was roped into this trip, and obviously, now you, the viewer, will get to witness it, so everything changes. What was to be Pandora’s trip became a major production, and I was suddenly in trouble for it. I resent the fact that suddenly I am to blame, it is a huge deal to entertain 14 people, and I certainly would never dream of asking anybody to do that. Robert wanted to comp the whole weekend as his gift to Pandora, Why do I feel I have to constantly justify mine and my daughter’s actions?”

To close out her blog, Lisa hinted that perhaps Adrienne was just trying to create drama for the camera. “When Adrienne and Paul are having dinner at a neighboring restaurant, it wouldn’t even enter my mind to question them! It seems as if some people are looking for a problem. . . So there we have it. Once again a pleasant evening was marred by a really petty matter. I am losing patience with this constant need for altercations when we all have busy lives,” blogged Lisa.

Pandora also took to Twitter to defend her mom. Pandora tweeted, “Hello?Do I have a voice? Jason and I planned our own bachelor/bachelorette parties, not @LisaVanderpump #givemeabreak #loveplanethollywood.” Pandora later added: “An old friend offered to throw it at his casino PH and I have known him since I was 9!”

Moving on to Taylor ArmstrongRadarOnline is now reporting she just signed a book deal — a memoir that will reportedly include details of her marital turmoil with deceased husband Russell Armstrong.

“Taylor’s deal is with Simon and Schuster and the book will be out in February 2012,” a source close to Taylor reveals. “It will be a memoir and the abuse she endured while married to Russell, as well as another abusive relationship she was in the past will all be detailed.”

The source adds, “Taylor is writing the book to put a face on women involved in domestic violence. She wants the public to know there are resources for battered women, and there is a way out.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON LISA’S COMMENTS? DID ADRIENNE HAVE A RIGHT TO BE UPSET AT HER? PLUS THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR’S BOOK DEAL? WOULD YOU READ IT?


Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was a shoe spectacular! And oh man was I jealous over Adrienne’s collection. Adrienne hosted a fashion show to showcase her new shoe line as well as raise money for a charity that’s close to her sole (see what I did there?). Lisa and Adrienne exchanged words and Taylor continued her crusade against Camille. All in all it was a pretty good episode that was light on Richards’ drama and Taylor-Traumas!

Things begin with Lisa rushing in the door and she’s late, late, late for a meeting with wedding planner to the insane Kevin Lee. Kevin has apparently convinced Lisa and Pandora to surrender their brains, because as the invitations are unveiled my heart sank when I saw the ridiculous Michael’s craft project gift box. Did I mention those boxes cost $150 a pop? I apparently missed my calling and shall be quitting RT to race to Beverly Hills and design chintzy wedding invites. At least it was a slightly better color combo. As Lisa and Pandora gush over the boxitations, Ken looks slightly confused about what the eff he just paid for.

Lisa Vanderpump is speaking out about the outlandish and tragic issues on this season’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and admitting she’s had about enough!

Calling this season “difficult” in the wake of Russell Armstrong’s suicide and the constant fighting amongst the ladies, she explains: “You just have to keep plowing ahead.”

“I felt a bit under attack this season with people saying this and saying that,” she admits, speaking to Parade. “I think if you stay true to yourself, people will make up their own minds.” And according to last Monday’s WWHL poll the viewers did make up their minds!

“I don’t really care what others think of me. You’re not going to please everybody,” she adds about the downside of fame. “I care what I think and what my children and my husband thinks. If I’m OK with them, I’m OK with myself. It’s a very good barometer. I just try to be honest.”

“Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth,” Lisa remarks, confronting her issues with co-star Taylor Armstrong. “I’ve had issues with Taylor, like ‘Sorry, Taylor, you’re too thin. You’re not eating.’ It doesn’t matter what way you cut it, does she like it? No, but that’s what we are encouraged to do, to be honest. We’re not going to sit there and say nothing on the show, we’re encouraged to speak our mind and sometimes people don’t like it.”

“I always knew there was volatility in the marriage, I was worried for her,” Lisa clarifies. “I kept saying “Maybe we’re not the closest of friends, however… if you need a place to stay.” And there was certainly no malice to her statements! “I feel very sorry for her – Taylor and her little girl.”

“We’re in a pretty good place right now,” she tells RumorFix about her current relationship with Taylor. Why do I not believe her?! “Things get worse before they get better,” she stresses, explaining that the dynamics of the show are “fascinating.”

Lisa also tackles Kyle Richard’s backstabbing ways this season, saying she found them “hurtful” and she wishes she could have relied on Kyle’s support throughout the season.

Perhaps Lisa is ready to move far, far away from the drama and onto her own show? Rumor has it that’s definitely a possibility! “It has been mentioned, but I can’t talk too much about that right now,” she says of the opportunity to go solo.

“This has been sort of a surprise. I knew what I was getting into, the franchise is so successful. I’ve had a lot of fun with it. I don’t know where it goes from here. It’s just great to be able to get a platform.” Wow – I have a feeling Kyle’s head will explode if Lisa gets her own TV show!

THOUGHTS ON LISA’S INTERVIEW? DOES LISA HAVE A RIGHT TO BE HONEST OR SHOULD SHE KEEP HER FEELINGS TO HERSELF? DO YOU BELIEVE HER RELATIONSHIP WITH TAYLOR IS IN A BETTER PLACE? WOULD YOU WATCH LISA ON HER OWN SHOW?

I don’t even know what to say about last night’s absolutely insane episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills except is Taylor on diet pills or crack cocaine? And was she seriously SERIOUSLY trying to stage a cast-wide mutiny against Lisa? Denile may be the longest river in Egypt, but Delusion is the longest road to crazytown.

Kyle meets Kim’s boyfriend Ken… and Kyle is not impressed – before she notices what could possibly be a wedding band! Kim explains it is only a promise ring (high school, much?). One reason Kyle is not happy with this relationship is that Kim’s kids have told her Ken is very controlling. Controlling or not, Kim is happy and for the first time in her life doing something she wants to do. Kyle, like the rest of us, will have to wait and see. So far, things aren’t looking good as apparently Ken is still active on Match.com. Oops!

When Kyle tells Mauricio about Kim’s surprise boyfriend, he’s pretty non-plused, but shocked she was able to keep it a secret for so long. Kyle decides she is going to borrow a trick her mom Big Kathy used when she didn’t like one of her daughter’s boyfriends – ignore him completely! That’s just what she plans to do about this whole Ken thing. Um…Kyle – remember YOU ARE NOT KIM’S MOTHER! (sorry – I think she deserved to be yelled at!)
