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.
Well, it’s official! With no definite cast announcement, filming for the third season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has begun! And apparently, viewers can expect some pretty drastic changes this season!
“Filming began last week on the third season with Kyle Richards,” a source close to the show reveals to RadarOnline. “She has a lot going on in her life right now, including helping her sister and fellow cast member, Kim Richards, navigate the sometimes rocky road of sobriety.” But viewers shouldn’t expect another dreary season of Kim’s drunken antics – this is a whole new RHOBH!
“Kim’s sobriety and recovery are going to be a focal point of her story line. The ladies haven’t all filmed together yet but are expected to begin that next week. Kyle has been lamenting that she is really going to miss Camille [Grammer] because she added much needed class to the show.” Well, that’s a change from the first season when rumors abounded that she lobbied to get ol’ Cammie fired!
As for Taylor Armstrong, she’ll be back but reportedly not for long! “The ladies are also extremely concerned about Taylor’s drinking problem,” the insider reveals. “It has really gotten out of control and they all believe she is an alcoholic in need of help.”
“Taylor needs to go to rehab and the producers have talked to Kyle and Kim about how best to approach her drinking problem, because Kim’s battle with the bottle was documented on the air,” the insider continues. “There has been talk of doing an on-camera intervention for Taylor.”
However, don’t expect another season of Taylor’s issues to overtake the storyline. After last seasons extremely depressing focus, producers want to get away from the negativity and move towards the BH viewers want to see!
“Producers also want to lighten things up for the upcoming season. There was so much sadness in the last season because of the suicide and Kim’s drinking problem. Viewers want to live vicariously through the ladies and not see so much doom and gloom.”
And speaking of Taylor, despite reports that she is freaking out about losing her job on RHOBH, Loony Lips expressed no such concern on a recent radio interview with The Kyle and Jackie O Show.
“I think there’s so much speculation, I hear things all the time about my life that are completely untrue … I read so many crazy things … [it] definitely has not been decided, they haven’t announced or determined the cast … but that certainly didn’t come to me from Bravo, I heard it in the press.”
THOUGHTS – DO YOU BELIEVE THE THIRD SEASON WILL BE MORE UPBEAT?
“I’m growing and I’m really just focused on Kennedy and learning how to be a single woman and a single mom,” she shared. “I’m just so not ready.” Taylor admits it’s because she still isn’t over Russell Armstrong. “I still think about Russell every single day, and I still miss him terribly and I feel like I’m so far from ready. I don’t know if you just wake up and you’re ready, or how that works. But for me, for now, I really got some growing to do, I think, before I’ll be even ready to be a good judge of what’s good for me.”
Well, perhaps the reason Taylor isn’t ready to focus on a new relationship is she has bigger things to worry about – like a looming $1.5M lawsuit filed against her and her now deceased husband by MyMedicalRecords.com and NuWay Digital Services (NDS). Taylor heads to court this summer and it seems things are heading down a pretty treacherous path.
Today a routine hearing related to the case takes place. MMR alleges that Taylor was a willfully involved party, along with Russell, in pocketing missing investor monies and assisted in failing to disclose certain investors to MMR as part of a settlement agreement between the Armstrongs and MMR. They also state that Taylor misrepresented herself as being a member of the famous Ford Motor Family in order to “lure” investors. We all know this, but it’s worth repeating for scandal’s sake.
Taylor is so distraught over being written out of the show that she’s reportedly been hitting the bottle pretty hard. Taylor’s friends are concerned and are hoping she’ll head to rehab to get some help.
A source tells Radar Online: “Taylor has been relying on alcohol to cope with the suicide of her husband, Russell, and the stress of raising a child as a single mother. Viewers got a glimpse of her drinking last season on the show when she had an epic meltdown at Camille [Grammer’s] Aspen mansion. Taylor got so intoxicated that she climbed into her suitcase. It was very scary for all of the ladies to witness. And that was before Russell killed himself. The fellow Housewives feel that Taylor needs to go to rehab to learn how to cope with the pressures of life without alcohol or any other substances. Taylor is in denial that she has a problem with booze. One of the reasons is why is because she is a paid spokesperson for Ciroc vodka. She earns about $100 thousand a year from that endorsement deal, and she is afraid that if she goes to rehab they will drop her.”
Producers have supposedly decided that fans of the show aren’t feeling connected to Taylor, especially after she wrote the book about suffering abuse at the hands of her late husband, Russell Armstrong. They’re also afraid that Taylor will be too dull for this season without the marriage drama.
“Everyone’s concerned that without the marriage drama she’s just going to come across as dull. It’s unlikely that she’s going to be able to start publicly dating again so soon after Russell’s death and with her money troubles she’s unlikely to be leading any kind of aspirational lifestyle, so she’s basically not really going to have any interesting hook.”
TELL US – DO YOU THINK TAYLOR SHOULD HEAD TO REHAB? DO YOU THINK IT’S JUST A WAY TO SPICE UP HER STORYLINE THIS SEASON?
