Lisa Vanderpump and her husband Ken Todd renewed their vows in a fancy ceremony on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and they flashed this photo from their original wedding. We thought you’d like a closer look at it. Lisa was 21 when they wed in 1982 and Ken was 16 years older. They got married only six months after meeting, and it’s lasted a long time! Especially for a Beverly Hills housewife!
We can’t help but ponder the news that Bravo producers are BEGGING LeAnn Rimes to join the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Leann’s nemesis Brandi Glanville is totally up for it! Bravo is telling LeAnn that this is her opportunity to tell “her side of the story.” LeAnn famously broke up Brandi’s family and stole her husband Eddie Cibrian, whom she promptly married. But there really isn’t a GOOD side to that story so how can Leann clean up her image, anyway? Brandi’s new book would probably benefit if LeAnn were sensationally added to the cast. LeAnn’s penchant for being photographed in a bikini would certainly spur Brandi to a bikini showdown. WE would certainly tune in, wondering how long LeAnn could hold on to her sanity. Stranger things have happened.
If Beverly Hills Housewife Adrienne Maloof really DID move Sean Stewart, 32, into her Mulholland mansion, we have a few things for her to keep in mind. Adrienne, 51, is obviously on the rebound because she’s in the process of divorcing her husband plastic surgeon Paul Nassif. Sean’s history is not great – to his father Rod Stewart’s dismay, he’s been involved in violent club fights resulting in assault charges, lawsuits, and he’s no stranger to rehab. This is a guy who thinks his best quality is his hair. He has NO history, however, of education or career orientation. No job. Think it over, Adrienne.

Bravo flew a bunch of their top reality stars for some event in New York and put them all up at the Chelsea Hotel. It must have been quite a sight watching this group milling around the lobby. Atlanta Housewife NeNe Leakes is dressed to kill in red, with sparkly New Jersey Housewife Melissa Gorga equally ready for action. Shahs of Sunset star Reza Farahan is immaculately groomed and Beverly Hills Housewife Lisa Vanderpump is celebrating her spinoff show – to take place in her restaurant Sur. Who’s YOUR favorite?
Oh boy- “Real Housewife” Brandi Glanville is even more of a loose cannon than we realized. After she had that not-quite-legal New Year’s Eve “marriage” to her best friend Darin Harvey, she posted this on her Facebook page. The plot thickens:
“There is a sad person who has a serious cocaine problem that use to be married to my BFF Darin Harvey. Her name is Michelle she is a hopeless individual that has tried to black mail me.She sold Star magazine untrue stories about me for 15gs to support her drug habit. She is attempting to ruin my life and my real friendships.She is writing hateful mean messages to my real friends that are untrue.I am not married to Darin legally he is my friend, I love him and his son Tanner and I always will!”

Taylor Armstrong and her little girl Kennedy look like they don’t have a care in the world while shopping in Beverly Hills. Since her financially despondent husband Russell committed suicide, Taylor may have a lot of money worries. She was so eager to keep her job on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” that she filed for divorce because Bravo didn’t want her litigious husband around. Yes, she chose her reality show over her husband. Understandable if he was abusive. But we’re thinking she really needs the money now, and will do anything to stay on the show.
No WONDER Camille Grammer has actually been seen SMILING on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this season. She was such a sad sack last season during her divorce proceedings that it looked like she might not return to the show. (Dreary depressed types don’t last long on these shows. Bravo’s Andy Cohen likes glamour and high spirits.) Camille, 42, has been concealing her new boyfriend of a few months, lawyer Dimitri Charalambopoulos, 35. He’s 6’2″, and from Dallas, but took a place in Malibu to be near her. Hopefully she’s given him a thorough background check – Camille is a hot commodity with all that Kelsey Grammer money.
Taylor Armstrong has been fired from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills – and not a minute too soon. According to Patricia Shipp at The Enquirer, the other “wives” were sick and tired of hearing Taylor whine about her miserable life long BEFORE her miserable husband Russell killed himself. It was turning into a full-time therapy show for Taylor Armstrong. The other women felt she was way too needy and a big downer and producers agreed. Since that may have been her only source of income, Taylor might have to look for a job now.
Russell Armstrong’s two exes blame his estranged wife Taylor’s excessive spending for his suicide and call her a “gold digger.” Taylor has been sympathetically portrayed on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Russell was edited to look like the villain. Whether Taylor split from Russell because of his financial woes and lawsuits isn’t known, but she did seem to desert the sinking ship. Russell confessed to a friend that the reality show unfairly made him look bad and he was embarrassed. Also embarrassing was his lack of money – his credit cards were maxed out and he had to move in with a friend, and that’s where he became despondent and hung himself. Sad story – good for ratings. By the way, we’re tired of hearing people repeat over and over about how their “thoughts and prayers” are with the family left behind – can’t they come up with something more sincere and original if they really care?
Kelsey Grammer’s exwife Camille ungraciously summed up her husband’s sexual equipment as “Big hands, big feet, big disappointment.” Unable to ignore the insult, Kelsey’s present wife Kayte Walsh responded “Perhaps the fault lies not so much with the member in question, but rather the inspiration at hand.” Either Kayte speaks JUST LIKE Frasier Crane, or she had SOME HELP with that quote!
