On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills I came to the conclusion that I am just so burned out on the Taylor, Taylor, Taylor show. And this show in general. Perhaps it’s a symptom of my profession that I watch too much Housewives! 😉
Things pick up where they left off with Tea Party Part Deux and Camille confronting Taylor about her allegations of abuse. Camille is confused about how Taylor expects her friends to be all ecstatic about her husband when she is telling them he abuses her, yet no one sees any signs of said abuse – physical or otherwise.
Taylor calls Camille “uncool” for outing her marital issues, but Camille seems nonplussed and continues asking Taylor about the inconsistencies going on. Then, Camille pulls a total Dynasty diva moment and storms out! I wish there would be an exciting and frivolous Dynasty-style catfight on this show already. Full-scale hair pulling, sequined gown ripping, destroying of manicured lawns, all out bitch-queen catfight. Can we get on scripting this, Bravo? kthx!

On last week’s episode, Taylor, 40, accused Lisa of mistreating her and refusing her friendship, and no we are not back in elementary school! Things took a turn for the bitchier nastier when Taylor outed her costars for talking smack about Lisa behind her back, while also trying to rile them all up to go against Lisa.
Unfortunately for Taylor, her attempt failed… miserably as the ladies ended up turning the night into an intervention for her regarding her marriage and her claims of physical abuse at the hands of her now deceased husband, Russell Armstrong.
Taylor, who hasn’t blogged all season, took to her Twitter to discuss the drama. First she appeared to be defending her awful behavior when she tweeted: “U didn’t see all the conversations. But, I love [Lisa] and were good.” This was in response to a fan telling her Lisa never said she was not her friend, but rather stated she was not masquerading as her best friend.
Taylor later added: “I was a nut case. Getting healthy,” after a fan accused her of being a nut case. Lisa, who has been rather gracious with the whole ordeal, also retweeted Taylor’s message so it appears all is well between both ladies. Taylor also had a message for her “haters,” tweeting: “I actually feel for the haters. What a waste of a life.”
Meanwhile, Camille Grammerspoke out about last week’s tea party drama, first making it clear she wasn’t a fan of Taylor’s behavior and then expressing regret for revealing Taylor’s abuse claims on camera.
Camille blogged: “The argument should have been just between Lisa and Taylor. If Taylor had any problems with Lisa, I think she should have pulled Lisa aside or took her for tea alone and discussed their issues… Some of Taylor’s stories were inconsistent which led to our confusion. It was a very touchy and difficult subject and so sad and unfortunate. All we really wanted was the best for her and to help without crossing the line.”
Camille continued, “Accusations were flying around the room. I was frustrated because Taylor basically kept accusing us of being liars and talking behind Lisa’s back. When she said nobody is being honest it struck a nerve with me. I thought, ‘OK, you might not think everyone is being honest but who is really being honest? You’re not being honest with yourself. How do we help you because I know we all tried?’ Over the last year and a half we have protected her and helped her. My frustration stemmed from her blaming others when she needed to look inside her own relationship and to also realize that we were there for her. So what I said came out of that frustration.”
“Do I regret saying it — of course! If only I could have broached the subject better, I would have. At the time emotions were running high. Not just with me, but Lisa chimed in too. We were so frustrated. I was truly concerned for Taylor and that’s the hard part. I wanted to be there for her. I did offer that she and Kennedy could move into my home… I regret now what I said during this episode. And I apologized. I felt absolutely terrible. All I wanted to do was help my friend,” added Camille.
Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH. On the 12th episode this season titled ‘The Great Divide,’ friendships are reevaluated and bitter tension is at a simmer in the wake of Lisa’s tea party. As conflict is put on the back burner, Taylor puts her focus on throwing a flashy birthday bash for her daughter.
The episode airs at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR’S TWEETS? IS ALL FORGIVEN? THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?
Kyle Richards hasn’t approved of Kim Richards’ relationship since the get-go, but after learning that Kim’s beau has a DUI and is active on an Internet dating sight, she really doesn’t like him.
Speaking out about the contentious relationship while attending Virgin Unite’s Rock the Kasbah event (she was attending with husband Mauricio Umansky and niece, Paris Hilton), Kyle explains she has just heard the news about Ken Blumenfeld’s 2009 arrest for a DUI and his current Match.com profile. A photo of Ken’s online dating profile is below.
“I just heard about the DUI…I just heard about that today,” Kyle admits. As for Kim, she may still be in the dark about the recent drama surrounding Ken! “I spoke with her yesterday and she hadn’t heard about that yet,” Kyle reveals of Ken’s activity on the Match.com dating site (he was last active a little over three weeks ago). Telling MailOnline that Kim avoids “magazines and websites,” Kyle, confesses she sure doesn’t want to be the one to fill her in on the gory details!
“My sister doesn’t read any magazines, she doesn’t look at any blogs or anything like that. Every now and then she gets on Twitter but she doesn’t pay attention to it,” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star described. “I don’t tell her because I know eventually someone will say, ‘I heard or I read,’ but I don’t want to be that person,” Kyle explained. Sister of the year!
Kyle once again explains her reasons for questioning Kim’s relationship is out of concern. “I just really love my sister and I want the best for her, and I just don’t think that is the best situation for her.”
Disclosing that the two lovebirds are still together, although she hasn’t been invited over (why am I not surprised…), Kyle suspects Kim may be having some doubts about her relationship! “’I think she is beginning to come to her senses. I really hope she will.” As for Kim, she has yet to comment on any of it! I guess time will tell…
In other RHOBH news, is Taylor Armstrong the next Housewife to get the axe? A source supposedly connected to the show is telling In Touch Weekly: “With all the backlash from Russell [Armstrong]’s death, producers will most likely not renew her contract. She is in a fragile state.” This leaves us to wonder is Taylor about to join the ranks of fired Housewives?
Even more interesting, this isn’t the first time there have been whispers of Bravo firing Taylor following this season. The National Enquirer first reported the news last month.
In Touch also adds that Bravo has already invited back some RHOBH for season 3! “Kim, Kyle and Lisa are being asked to do the third season,” adds the source.

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 WWHLpoll 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!)

In Touch Weekly magazine is reporting Taylor Armstrongcontinues to hit rock bottom with her drinking. A friend of Taylor tells the mag that while she used to be a social drinker; she is now up to 20 drinks a day since the tragic suicide of her estranged husband Russell Armstrongback in August.
“She starts early in the morning,” says the pal. “She’s gone from wine to hard liquor. She’ll pretty much drink anything.” The pal adds that they are terrified Taylor’s becoming an “alcoholic.”
In fact, Taylor’s loved ones are reportedly considering an intervention. “She’s drinking away her pain and her grief,” the friend explains. “But she has a major problem and needs to come to terms with it.”
The mag, however, reports that Taylor is a long way from coming to terms with anything as she is said to be in denial about her issues. On a recent Friday night, Taylor was spotted stumbling out of the trendy Trousdale Lounge in LA, looking more like a trashed starlet than a 40-year-old mom.
Her wild behavior in addition to her scary skinny look now has her loved ones worried as they fear she won’t be able to care for her 5-year-old daughter Kennedy if she keeps going down this downward spiral.
Taylor is refusing to get the help she needs and is not listening to those who truly care about her reports the mag, instead choosing to hang out with enabling “drinking buddies” such as Most Eligible Dallas star Matt Nordgren, 28, who is described as her “new boyfriend.”
“He’s a partier, too, so they love to go out together,” the pal shares, adding, “Taylor’s acting like she’s in her twenties again.”
The pal adds that Taylor turns to alcohol to avoid her guilt, grief and ongoing money issues. And she doesn’t curtail her drinking even around her daughter. Yikes.

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsdealt with both the past and future as Kyle hosted a séance, the ladies got their faces touched up and reapplied, and Kim finally confessed that she is moving in with her secret boyfriend, Ken much to Kyle’s shock!
Dr. Paul hosts a Night of Beauty at his plastic surgery office. Kyle wants to do a little laser muffin top removal. Kyle is excited, yet nervous about being subjected to the chub-munching octopus, but threatens to move into Paul’s office if it works. Paul tells her to relax and then the torture of lying there while some little red swirls dance across her mythical fat roll begins.
Lisa is wandering through the labyrinth of Botox and laser treatments looking for Kyle when she stumbles across Taylor. Taylor has snacks and is waiting with some sort of weird numbing goop smeared all over her face as she is prepping to get some new fillers in her cheeks. Lisa advises her to skip the procedures and go straight for the food, which is untouched. Taylor informs us that she has a “genetically thin face” and no matter how much she eats she always looks like Skeletor.

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills things got wild Moroccan style at Pandora’s insane, incredible, fantastic engagement party. Can Mohammed be my godfather? Kim debuted her new man who is also a Ken! And Taylor and Russell got a little threatastic with the tabloids. Oh, and Taylor started planning another Birthday Party for Kennedy!
Lisa is driving through her hood amidst the palm trees, Bentleys, designer logos, and mega-mansions casually calling all her friends to remind them that the party of the year will be happening on Tuesday so they better show up. Sadly, everyone is screening her calls. No interest in the British accent today, co-stars? Finally Kyle answers and is wondering what on earth to wear?! Something fun and something ball gown. Lisa fills Kyle in on her little cooking lesson with Adrienne. They are both surprised Adrienne didn’t rub some hand lotion on the poor chicken!
