Just days following the airing of the reunion episode, Bravo has already began casting for season 2 and looking to add some new housewives. The reason? Camille Grammer and Kim Richards might not be returning to the show. Camille has expressed uncertainty about coming back and Kyle Richards recently stated Kim might not return.
Meanwhile, a report by E! News states Bravo is looking to axe Taylor Armstrongbecause her season 1 storyline failed to impress. So with the likelihood that three of the cast members will be leaving, Bravo is currently in talks with three potential new housewives.
First up is Jeanie Buss, daughter of Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss and an executive of the team. Jeanie is also the long time girlfriend of Lakers head coach Phil Jackson. Sources tell TMZ Jeanie recently met up with Bravo execs and producers even went to a recent Lakers game to observe her daily routine. Jeanie is reportedly very interested in joining the show, which would make for a great storyline as current housewife Adrienne Maloof’s family owns the rival Sacramento Kings.
Next up is Jennifer Flavin Stallone, wife of famous actor Sylvester Stallone. Some sources tell TMZ Jennifer is currently being recruited by Bravo to appear on the next season, while some other sources tell TMZ Jennifer hasn’t spoken to anyone from Bravo about signing on.
And finally, Brandi Glanville, ex-wife of actor Eddie Cibrian, has also been contacted by Bravo for next season. Brandi’s casting would make a lot of sense as she was just photographed this week hitting up a Beverly Hills restaurant with none other than Cedric Martinez aka Lisa Vanderpump’s former gay pet house guest. A photo of the two is below.
“He’s my gay best friend! I’ve known him for 16 years,” said Brandi to E! News about her friendship with Cedric. And yes, we foresee major messiness if Brandi is indeed added to the show.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE CASTING NEWS? DO YOU WANT TO SEE KIM, CAMILLE & TAYLOR RETURN?
The reunion begins with Andy Cohen greeting and complimenting the ladies, you know, easing them in for the verbal smackdown that is about to ensue! The first question is about plastic surgery and Lisa reveals she’s only had botox and fillers, while we learn that Paul is not Adrienne‘s plastic surgeon. Kyle then comes close to guessing the price of a gallon of milk, while Taylor doesn’t believe 60k is too much for a kid’s birthday party though Lisa thinks it’s “bloody ridiculous.”
The topic turns to the ladies ginormous mansions and we find out Lisa‘s home is actually 17,000 sq ft and not the 15,480 posted on her home listing. Lisa reveals she now wants to downsize and Andy tries to be messy wants to know what Lisa would consider a cozy home. At this point I’m thinking don’t take the bait Lisa, don’t give a figure, don’t do it! Lisa is smart and doesn’t take the bait, simply stating a cozy home is one in which she doesn’t have to page her husband. Good answer as there was really no right answer for a question like that.

Following the volatile finale episode of the hit show, many fans this week are asking Camille who? As Camille’s costars Taylor Armstrong and Kyle Richards are both neck in neck for the new most hated least liked BH housewife.
Plus in numerous interviews given in recent weeks, four of her costars, including Kyle, have mentioned they would like to see her back for a second season of the show.
Kyle told E! news that despite their differences, she would welcome Camille’s return. “Would I want her to be there [if there was another season]? Yes, I would,” Kyle revealed two days after the reunion was filmed. “I know that we’re very different and we’re like oil and water together, but I can’t help but think what she’s going through in her personal life might have something to do with that. It’d be interesting to see what happens when things in her life have calmed down a bit and maybe we can work things out a little better.”
And just this week, Adrienne Maloof also voiced her support for a Camille come back. “I personally think that she will come back,” Adrienne said to E!. “I also personally think she should because going out the way that she’s going to go out, it’s probably in her best interest.” Good point.
And unlike her other costars (with the exception of Kyle) who kiss up to Camille refuse to utter a word of criticism against Camille in the press, Adrienne gives a refreshing and honest answer when it comes to some of Camille’s actions on the show this season. “I have to tell you, it’s hard to defend the things that come out of her mouth,” said Adrienne. “I have to really be honest about that. Because I even had to say, “Wow! What did she just say?’ I just don’t know her to be that way…I don’t know what goes on inside her little head.”
Lisa Vanderpump and Taylor have also revealed in different interviews that they would like Camille to come back to the show. Must say if Camille had any smarts in her, she should just continue to relax, keep her mouth shut, make plans for her soon to be $50 million fortune, while watching what happens. It’s safe to say most of her actions over the season have now been over shadowed by the finale episode.
And finally, a video which appears to show a pretty drunk/inebriated Taylor Armstrong is making its rounds today. The footage, which was actually shot back in October 2010, shows Taylor talking to paparazzi with costar Kyle and Faye Resnick in Hollywood.
Taylor appears to have a hard time standing up straight as Kyle can be seen at one point trying to hold her up. When Kyle is asked who was responsible for the most drama of the season, she replies, “The drama queen? I think we already voted Kim as the drama queen. Yes Kim is the drama queen.” Who knew Kim was such a drama queen? As for who is the most scandalous, Kyle simply laughs it off and doesn’t mention a name.
That video footage is below. While the video is over 11 minutes, only the first 4 minutes and 30 seconds are about the BH ladies.
No word on whether or not Taylor spent a week in rehab after this video was made.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE VIDEO? DO YOU WANT CAMILLE TO RETURN FOR ANOTHER SEASON? IS CAMILLE HAVING THE BEST WEEK EVER?
According to a new TMZ report, Kelsey Grammer is now planning to tie the knot for the third time in February with fiance Kayte Walsh, and no longer in January as originally planned.
TMZ adds that the wedding, which is being planned for the last 2 weeks of February, will only take place if the judge in his divorce case with estranged wife, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills starCamille Grammer, ends their marriage this Wednesday during a scheduled hearing.
Kelsey’s lawyer filed new legal documents stating he has agreed to every condition Camille requested in order to get a divorce immediately, with the exception of one. That one condition is that Kelsey immediately provide Camille with $10 million bond until they negotiate the final settlement. Kelsey is claiming he cannot meet that condition at the moment.
Camille is still objecting to Kelsey being granted a divorce before their assets are divided. Meanwhile, Popeater is also reporting that Kelsey’s daughter from a previous marriage, Spencer Grammer, is engaged. Spencer, a 27-year-old actress who stars on ABC Family’s Greek is engaged to boyfriend James Hesketh.
According to an insider, “Camille and Spencer had no relationship. … And Spencer and her father are closer than ever since he split with Camille.” Photos of Spencer below.
And just days after Kyle Richardsissued a non-apology apology, Taylor Armstrongis also speaking out on the drama filled finale episode of the Beverly Hills housewives. According to the very delusional Taylor, she meant well with the confrontation conversation she initiated with Kim at her party, and also goes on to call Kim “unpredictable.” Excerpts from Taylor’s blog below -
“I often wonder if we would have had a nice first meeting in Sacramento, if things would have been different for us. At my birthday party, my intention was to sit down next to her (when I asked her friend for a moment with her) and have a talk about how I felt and what went wrong. When Kim stood up as opposed to my sitting down, I knew things were going to go badly. I could tell Kim wasn’t in the “mood” for aheart to heart. Lisa felt it was important for me to sort it out with Kim, but in retrospect, I should have said no and left it alone. Sometimes Kim says things she doesn’t mean (as do I) and with her, I really don’t understand where some of the content comes from. She is unpredictable but, that’s as much as I care to say about that. On occasion, you meet a person with whom you don’t seem to “click” and that, in my opinion, is what happened with Kim and I. We both had our guard up from the beginning and the results weren’t favorable. I wish Kim all the best and hope we can put our pointless bickering behind us.”
Perhaps it’s just me but isn’t “unpredictable” a fancier way of calling someone crazy? A very unnecessary dig. In her blog, Taylor goes on to state she regrets being a two faced sh*t stirrer “whatever part my comment played in” the finale episode.
After reading Taylor’s blog, I had to go back and watch the scene again and below is the exact words of exchange between Taylor and Kim at her party.
Taylor: You look… Could you excuse me for a minute? I just, Can I have a word with you for just a second?
Taylor: Lisa started asking me about why, how I all of a sudden got involved in this whole altercation between Camille and Kyle and I really feel like it only had to do with you kinda like trying to wind me up in LAX. And you know, I just want to kind of get that off my chest because I had nothing to do with it. And like you had all the opportunity in the world to stop what was happening between Camille and Kyle and instead it went on and on and on and I really feel like I shouldn’t have been dragged into it.
Kim: Really? I feel like none of you could let it die…
And that’s exactly how the supposed “heart to heart” conversation began except feel free to read Taylor’s words in a condescending tone. Quite frankly, I’m not a fan of all the bull and all the cruel insinuations regarding Kim. In a matter of days, Kim is now an insane unpredictable alcoholic and none of these ladies want to take responsibility for their actions. It’s that whole I’m sorry but…, I regret what I said but… None of Kim’s actions on the show have been unpredictable. Kyle was the one who tried to attack her in the limo, and Taylor was the one who flew off her rocker, not once, but twice whenever Kim tried to bring up her role in winding Camille up in NYC. And isn’t it funny that when Lisa brought up the same exact thing Kim had been trying to say, Taylor reacted very differently. I feel that all these comments and insinuations are truly disgusting, transparent, and a way for Taylor to deflect from her actions.
And I also have to ask, if Kim is an unpredictable alcoholic, why approach her? why confront her? This is regarding both Taylor and Kyle’s actions. Must say, not too many sane people will confront or try to attack an unpredictable alcoholic in public, especially one who is minding their business. As I said in the recap, something is not adding up.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHT ON THE LATEST BH NEWS?
The finale of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills aired last night and the ending proved to be both powerful and emotional. But if there’s one thing I learned last night, it is that Bravo needs to do whatever it takes to sign Taylor Armstrong for season 2! Forget Camille. Taylor is solely responsible for the 3 major smackdowns that took place this season, thus making the show a success. Think about it, Taylor completely instigated the NYC fight between Camille & Kyle which spilt into the dinner from hell. As if that wasn’t enough, the phony sly lady instigated the limo fight between Kim & Kyle by confronting Kim on something she was solely responsible for. Oh yes, Bravo needs to crave it to any demands Taylor might have. She is indeed needed back for a second season.
The episode begins where we left off last week, with Camille and Kelsey getting ready to go to the Tonys. As they ride in the limo together, things still seem very awkward between the two as they, well mostly Camille, continue to try to put on a happy face for their entourage. I once again wonder who’s idea it really was to have Camille come to NYC for the awards.
Next up, Kyle decides to pay her Psychic/Medium Rebecca a visit. According to Kyle, Rebecca is the real deal unlike Camille’s clown aka Allison. Kyle reveals she brought her mom along with her as I can only assume she means her ashes. “I didn’t know if you were going to think I was crazy or not,” asks Kyle. Well, maybe a little crazy Kyle but not that much. “I also brought a lock of her hair,” adds Kyle. Okay and now we’re at a level 10 crazy. Rebecca then goes on to tell Kyle that she is currently having a conflict with another woman. Kyle agrees though that statement could easily apply to 99.98% of the world’s female population. Rebecca reveals some other things that ring true to Kyle and the session ends.

In the 1 minute, 38 second video clip, Camille claims: “The whole season was set up to make me look bad.” She then gets into it with Kyle, stating, “You bully me all the time and I’m fed up.” Kyle fires back: “Quit using the buzzword of the moment.”
Kyle also brings up Camille’s porn past, defending her friend Faye Resnick by stating doing porn is way more corrupt that doing a tasteful spread in Playboy. Other issues brought up? Kim might have a drinking problem, Kim is asked is the feels bullied by Kyle, and Lisa’s husband Ken can be seen stating he absolutely hates someone, whom we believe is Cedric.
The first part of the reunion showdown airs Jan. 27 with part 2 scheduled to air Feb. 1 at 10 p.m. ET on Bravo.
In other BH news, Camille Grammer continues her press tour, perhaps still hoping to redeem her image, with her latest appearance on Lopez Tonight Tuesday night.
During the interview, Camille tried to backtrack on the comments she made about estranged husband and father of her two children, Kelsey Grammer, when she strongly insinuated he was a cross-dresser. She told George Lopez her comments on the Howard Stern was simply a big joke.
However, TMZ is flat out calling Camille a liar. According to TMZ, it couldn’t be a joke because Camille has also shared the same exact information with some members of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast. People from the show tell TMZ that Camille was very bitter over the divorce, and would tell anyone who would listen that Kelsey loved to wear women’s clothing. Not surprising as Camille has been shown being very vindictive on the Bravo hit show.
The preview clip of the reunion is below -

Below are way more before they were famous photos including one of Adrienne Maloof before plastic surgery, well before most of the plastic surgeries (she looked much nicer by the way), plus some high school photos of Taylor Armstrong, bikini shots of Kyle Richards and Lisa, Camille Grammer before she became a villain and a much younger foxier Kim Richards.
Though Bravo has yet to officially confirm there will be a second season (very likely as the ratings have been great), a source close to production confirms to THR that Camille has decided she will not be returning either way.
Camille, 42, has found herself on the receiving end of a lot of backlash whether it be regarding her four nannies for two children, her crazy friendships with married tennis partner Nick Stabile and medium from hell Allison Dubois, and her now infamous feud with costar Kyle Richards.
In fact, Camille recently graced the cover of Life & Style magazine after being declared the most hated housewife ever. THR, a very reputable media outlet, does not give a reason for Camille’s decision to leave the show.
But we have to wonder if this could be also related to the reunion show which was taped yesterday (Tuesday) in Los Angeles. While Bravo attempts to keep the details of the reunion under wraps until it airs, below are the tweets from Andy Cohen and some of the housewives regarding the taping -
“Giggy and I just wrapped an INCREDIBLE reunion show! Wow” – Andy
“Omg. Such a long day! Too much to even begin to get in to :/… I feel like I’ve been shagged thru a hedge backwards ” – Kyle
“Ok …all I can say is wow…it’s over! Goodnight fellow housewives,a lot to deal with today.sleep well everybody x x” – Lisa
“Good Morning! Yesterday was such an emotional day filming the reunion. Hoping for a sunny LA day to help shake off the blues.” – Taylor
Bravo has yet to announce the airing date of the reunion show but we will let you know once they do. And finally, the following blind item was posted on the CDAN website yesterday via Bravo Gossip -
“This controversial Real Housewives star is about to have some added drama in her life. The tabloids are working overtime to get a bunch of stories about our Housewife and her glory days as a hooker. Not anyone in New York or New Jersey.”
It seems to be referencing Camille Grammer, who is long rumored to have been a past escort. Yikes.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON CAMILLE QUITTING THE SHOW?
UPDATE – Hours after the HollywoodReporter first broke the news, TMZ is also confirming Camille has indeed quit the show. In fact, Camille has reportedly lawyered up and is now discussing a “settlement” with Bravo. We’re guessing the lawyering up is so that she can get out of her contract with the network.
As for the reason she is quitting, sources close to Camille reveal she is upset with the way she’s been portrayed on the show. And that she did the show because her soon to be ex-husband Kelsey Grammer wanted her to, but now that she’s a single mom, “circumstances have changed.”
UPDATE #2 - A rep for Camille tells PEOPLE “she has not made any decision yet about whether she’s returning to the show or not.” The rep adds, “She taped a very explosive reunion episode yesterday, where people are going to see a different side of her than they’ve seen before.” TMZ and THR are two highly reliable media outlets so we’re are going to go with what they are reporting. The comments of Camille’s rep probably has to do with legalities and the fact that she is still under contract with Bravo.
