Happy birthday Portia! What does one get for the four-year-old who has everything? Perhaps a little drama, RHOBH style!
Radaronline.com is reporting that while Kyle Richards’ daughter was getting into her birthday cake, the always messy Taylor Armstrong was getting into the vino. Big time. A guest of the shindig tells the site, “It’s extremely worrying that Taylor would get blitzed at a birthday party for a four-year-old little girl. She doesn’t weigh a lot and doesn’t seem to have a high threshold for alcohol, it didn’t take long for her to be wasted. Taylor was drinking white wine and it was truly sad to see — she was slurring her words and she got very emotional the more she had to drink. Taylor didn’t drive, thank God, she had a driver for the evening, but she clearly is in a great deal of distress right now and she desperately needs help.”
Oh Lisa, Lisa, Lisa…have you learned nothing from Jill Zarin and Teresa Giudice? Getting too big for your Chanel baubles leads to nothing but co-star–and fan!–backlash. RadarOnline is reporting that Lisa Vanderpump has gotten a tad cocky in light of her recent spin-off. A source tells the site, “There are a lot of bad feelings because Lisa got her own show and Taylor [Armstrong] for one thinks that Lisa has been acting like a diva during filming. Taylor and Lisa had gotten close after Russell’s suicide last year, but Taylor now feels like that was all done for the cameras.”
“The Housewives are jealous that Lisa got so much attention at the recent up fronts in New York City,” the insider goes on to say. However, “Lisa does have one very vocal supporter among the cast though, Brandi Glanville. Brandi thinks it’s fantastic that Lisa got her own show and of course, she wants to appear on that show as well.” No shocker there!
After much back and forth about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ season three cast and some speculation that Brandi Glanville would again be relegated to “Friends Of The Housewives;” it seems our sassy Xanax-loving friend will be officially added to the cast. She’s earned her stripes and now, she’s a real Housewife. Something tells me that after she took on the Twisted Richards Sisters she had sealed her fate in gold!
According to RadarOnline, Brandi is a full-time cast member who will be getting a good portion of camera time this season. “They’ve offered her a full time role and she will be included in the promotional cast photos and will have her own introductory segment at the beginning of the credits. Brandi is absolutely thrilled.” Who else cannot wait for Brandi’s intro?
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!

Well, it seems the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are officially back! Reports that the ladies have started filming have been confirmed by actual sightings of the taping in action. In fact, WetPaint reports that the cast will be doing its first group filming at Lisa Vanderpump‘s restaurant Villa Blanca. And everyone will be in tow – even Brandi Glanville, whose name has been conspicuously absent from reports about who is in and who is out!
“All the major players will be there,” a show insider discloses. “It’ll be the first time they film together as a group for the new season.” Apparently, cast drama is still running strong and the ladies have yet to come together and sort through last season’s grievances.
“The women aren’t friends in real life so when they get back together they just continue bickering about everything that they were mad about last season,” a source reveals to RadarOnline. “This year the Housewives are still fuming about all their old slights, barbs and insults and they’re not about to let anything go in front of the cameras this time around.”
And reported new housewife, Yolanda Hadid is already causing drama amongst the cast! Apparently, she and Lisa will have some issues over “some past legal wrangles that have gone on,” the source adds. “As always, the women are going to be asked to pick sides and of course there will be lots of fighting once the tension starts building.”
Another strain, is Kim Richards, who producers expect to be really on point this season following last year’s disastrous appearance. Allegedly, the cast is worried about Kim managing her sobriety with the stress of filming – and dealing with the constant unrest amongst her co-tarts!
Well – that sounds exciting. I can’t wait to watch more of the same thing. Yet another reason Bravo needs to recast after a couple of seasons!
ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON OR ALREADY OVER IT? WILL YOLANDA BE A GOOD FIT AMONGST THE LADIES?
Fans have often wondered why none of their beloved Housewives have been given a shot at the mirrorball trophy (and let’s face it, they looooove shiny things!). Radar Online did some digging and came up with a source who shared that the ladies just aren’t famous enough for the show and the fact that they work for a “rival” network. (ABC vs. NBC-owned Bravo)
In your daily dose of Housewives news, we can report that there’s a new and super-wealthy lady joining the cast of RHOBH.
Radaronline.com is reporting that Yolanda Hadid, Dutch model and fourth wife of award-winning music producer David Foster, has officially joined the lavish cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It seems, as well, that Yolanda has an automatic “in” as she’s known Lisa Vanderpump for years. And we all saw how well a long friendship played out for Lisa and Adrienne Maloof!
A source reveals, “What most people don’t realize is that Yolanda was married to Lisa’s very good friend, Mohamed Hadid. Mohamed has appeared several times on the show, including during the last season when he threw an over the top engagement party for Lisa’s daughter, Pandora. Yolanda is going to make an excellent addition to the cast and she can definitely hold her ground if the claws come out; she is no shrinking violet.” I wonder if there will be any scenes with Yolanda, Mohamed, and Mo’s robot teen girlfriend. I’d certainly tune in for that!
The new season, which presumably premieres this fall, will be missing original cast member Camille Grammer, who, sources say, refused to be filmed with her boyfriend for a story line. Relegated to special appearances, producers need to vamp up the cast in light of Camille’s absence.
