Taylor Armstrong Thinks Rihanna And Chris Brown Can Collaborate ‘Without It Being Dangerous’
That’s what it looks like from Taylor’s guest spot on HLN, where she weighed in on Rihanna and Chris’ recent collaboration. This seems like nothing more than shameless publicity for her memoir, Hiding from Reality.
For one, their situations are drastically different: Russell quietly abused Taylor for years, even while the RHOBH cameras were rolling; I don’t know how long Chris’ abuse of Rihanna went on, but the incident that got the world’s attention was very public and very graphic.
We didn’t learn about Russell’s abuse until he killed himself.
What’s most disturbing is that Taylor seems to think that it’s OK for Rihanna and Chris to work together, because a professional relationship is somehow doable after the other person bites your fingers and slams your head into the car door.
The one thing I will give Taylor is that she encouraged both singers to open up about the abuse, to talk to their fanbases about how fucked up it is what he did to her.
The final episodes of the last season garnered record ratings for the reality show franchise, which featured Taylor Armstrong finally admitting to the other ladies that she was physically abused by her late husband, Russell Armstrong.
The Texas beauty feared that she wouldn't be asked to return for another season. However, network executives realize that Armstrong and her saga were ratings gold, and she will be asked back.
"Taylor, Lisa Vanderpump, Adrienne Maloof, Brandi Glanville, and Kyle Richards will all be asked to return,” a source close to the situation tells Radar.
“Bravo would love Camille Grammer to return too, but she might want to move on to other projects which she has expressed interest in. Kyle's sister, and fellow housewife, Kim Richards, has made it known she doesn't want to come back. Kim is still very fragile after her latest stint in rehab."
While none of the ladies have formally been asked back for the third season yet, it's expected that Bravo will extend the offer for season three in the next several weeks to Taylor, Adrienne, Kyle, Brandi and Kyle.
Meantime, “The network is actively looking for new cast members for the third season," the insider says.
Taping for the new season will begin after the 4th of July.
Is the name tacky? Yes. The designs? Not so much. In fact, a lot of them are totally cute! As in, I'd wear them as opposed to anything from that trainwreck collection OC Housewife Lynne Curtin came out with years ago.
I know exactly what Camille's gotta be thinking right about now: Take that, Kelsey! I mean come on -- this momma of two could really have a money maker at her fingertips.
Take a look at some of our fave pieces from AMOREphosis:
First, let's start with the earrings. All of the AMOREphosis pieces are super collerful, which I love. Jazz up any neutral outfit with a hint of pizazz, like these sea green chalcedony earrings ($135) or the cherry quartz earrings ($65).
The splashes of color continue to their extensive collections of bracelets and cuffs. My favorite, the triple turquoise cuff (center, $895), is a whooooollllle lotta dough, but the aventurine bracelet (left, $75) and the turquoise bracelet (right, $75) are on the cheaper side and add the same touch of fun glitz.
For the grand finale: necklaces. From left to right, we have the sea green chalcedony necklace ($155), the turquoise necklace ($115), and the yellow quartz necklace ($105). I adore the yellow quartz one! I'm such a sucker for anything yellow, especially when it starts to get nicer out. Hello spring!
The way I see it -- the only downfall to the AMOREphosis jewelry line is that it's a bit pricey. However, if you want Real Housewives caliber style, then I supposed you're gonna have to shell out Real Housewives-style dough.
When the show started, NeNe was married and living with her husband and two children. Kim was single, but getting gifts from an older man. She did have her two daughters, but the focus on Kim was mostly on her relationship with a married man.
Now the tables have turned and NeNe is the single woman with a rich man who buys her gifts. Kim is married to Kroy and living in a huge mansion with her daughters, her newborn son and two dogs. However, what Kim has now, NeNe had first - or so she claims.
Because of the drastic changes in Kim's life, Bravo offered her a spin-off to show her planning for her wedding to Kroy. In addition, Kim was recently offered another spin-off, which is a one-hour special documenting how Kroy and Kim met and how they got to where they are now.
However, NeNe claims she was offered the spin-off deal first. "Let's b very clear, I was the first 1 offered a spin off! It has been offered a few times! I personally don't feel it's right 4 me," NeNe tweeted.
"I don't jump @ every opportunity! I hav a professional team that works 4 me & wit me 2 make the best business decisions. Good nite."
There is no proof that NeNe was indeed offered a spin-off before Kim and there is little reason to believe it.
Dr. Paul Nassif claims a dissatisfied nose job patient has been harassing and threatening him to the point the cops are now involved and Nassif is asking for court protection.
Nassif -- a cosmetic surgeon who is married to "Housewives" star Adrienne Maloof -- performed all sorts of schnoz work on Roman Melikov. Mr. Melikov didn't like the results, to say the least.
According to the police report, Nassif claims Melikov incessantly called his office, demanding to speak with him and threatening, "If I don't get to f**king talk to Dr. Nassif, I will just show up and f**king wait for him to talk to me because he needs to f**king pay for this!"
And Melikov left voicemails for Nassif, referring to himself as a "psycho." Melikov also said he would come to Bev Hills to "have Nassif's wife help him out of pity."
Nassif's employees fear Melikov is mentally unstable and could come to the office "and do something crazy."
Nassif wants a restraining order, keeping Melikov away from him and his family. As for Melikov, he wants a $26,000 refund.
We spoke with Melikov, who told us Nassif screwed up his nose. The swelling didn't go down for 2 years. And the 25-year-old businessman tells us his nose is now bigger and ugly.
8:13 AM PST -- Melikov, a portfolio manager, tells TMZ Nassif has taken his "psycho" comment totally out of context ... explaining, "I told him I had to be a psycho to invest in this market, because it has been so volatile. "
