Brandi Glanville Gets Promotion; Is Now A Full Time Real Housewife!!!

After much speculation that Brandi Glanville would again be relegated to “Friend Of The Housewives” it seems our sassy Xanax loving friend will be officially added to the cast.

She’s earned her stripes and now she’s a Real Housewife.

Bad girl Brandi, has been given a promotion by Bravo executives and is now a full time castmember.

"Producers love Brandi. She's gorgeous, she's funny, outspoken and outrageous, she makes for great TV.

Filming began recently for season three of the hit franchise and Glanville, who had a minor role previously, is getting more than her fair share of the camera time.

"They've offered her a full time role and she will be included in the promotional cast photos and will have her own introductory segment at the beginning of the credits.

"She's been really popular on the show, even though she was just a minor castmember, and producers decided it was definitely worth giving her more air time.

"You can expect plenty of drama and 'oh no' moments! Brandi really knows how to bring it and she's going to add some real glamour and sparkle to the new season."

Brandi's promotion isn't the only change viewers can expect. As RadarOnline exclusively revealed, music mogul, David Foster's fourth wife, Yolanda Hadid has signed up for the new season, replacing Kelsey Grammer's ex-wife, Camille.

Taylor's Face Looks Frozen!

Taylor Armstrong looks like she has had one injection too many of celebrity favorite Botox.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was filming scenes for the hit Bravo reality show in West Hollywood yesterday when she showed off the effects of the purified toxin.

Instead of giving her the desired look of appearing more youthful, it just made her look like so many others that have fallen victim of going overboard with the beauty treatment.

Her face looked frozen and she looked like she couldn’t change expression because of the “cat” look.

Taylor admitted to getting Botox and fillers but maintains that she hasn’t had any surgery.

“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,”.

Taylor Loses in Court!

Before he took his life, Russell Armstrong was named in a $1.5 million lawsuit filed by MyMedicalRecords.com because the company believed that both Russell and Taylor breached the contract they had with the website.

Well, after Russell committed suicide, the lawsuit fell on Taylor's shoulders and she has to battle it now.

Well, the first leg of the lawsuit is over and Taylor has lost out.

According to BH Courier, Taylor was denied a motion, where the judge threw out a part of the settlement agreement where she would have to pay $1.5 million if the contract was broken, also called a liquidated damages clause. The judge didn'tagree that she could just walk away from the lawsuit.

"There is no evidence of the circumstances existing at the time the contract was made to enable the court to find that the liquidated damage clause is unreasonable".

Well, it looks like Taylor Armstrong will be fighting for her life in court to prove that she was forced to sign the contract at the hands of her abusive husband. She claims she had no idea that her husband was breaking the contract even though her name was on the papers. And even if that is true, she could be held responsible because she didn't know what was happening with contracts where her name was present.

Gretchen & Alexis At War Over Fox Five News Job!

Last week the writing was on the wall for Alexis and former BFFL Gretchen Rossi when Gretch not only insulted one of Lex’s part-time careers – the newscastering one – but she claimed Alexis was the producers second choice. And who was the first choice? Noneother than Gretchen, herself!

Upon learning that she was Gretch’s sloppy seconds, Alexis was hurt – and offended.

“The minute Gretchen left my home I called my Fox Five producer to confirm if this was true, and she said it was absolutely not true,” Alexis reports in her Bravo Blog.

“They were only asking Gretchen to do one segment as a co-host with me, and had no plans ever of giving Gretchen her own correspondent position.”

“It was like Gretchen had to say that to make herself feel better because she couldn’t be truly happy for my success,” Alexis continues. “The truth is, I have felt a disconnect with Gretchen that started months ago.”

Gretchen is responding in her own Bravo blog. She claims that of course she would never lie! Like, she’s the most honest person ever and Alexis is full of baloney!

“It’s true that I got offered the same job and wasn’t able to do it because I had too much going on at the time,” Gretchen protests. “For her to challenge that and say I am lying is ridiculous. What good reason would I have to lie about that? I guess I should have brought the e-mails to prove it to her.”

“It’s funny to me that she would accuse me of lying about that when after all she is the one that was lying about being a news anchor!”

Gretchen continues:

“The harsh truth is that I found myself in an awkward situation because they continued to ask if I still had interest in the job after they had already hired her. They can deny it all they want to Alexis. It makes sense that they would, because why would they burn that bridge in case they couldn’t find anyone else, but unfortunately that is the truth.

I felt bad I knew this and wanted to find a nice way to let my friend know because I thought it sucked for her. I knew I needed to be honest with her and was looking for the right time to tell her.

I believed I was being a good friend by not reconsidering taking the job and trying to find a way to kindly tell her what was going on. Unfortunately lesson learned with her and next time I will just blurt it out that they alluded they weren’t happy with her performance at the time, so that way I am not accused of trying to steal her thunder or not being happy for her.”

Um… wow. So I’m guessing these two have had a major falling out.

Meet New Beverly Hills Housewife Yolanda Hadid!

Sources tell E! News that Bravo has yet to confirm Yolanda’s involvement, and they aren’t sure if she’ll be signing on as an official housewife or be relegated to the “Friends Of The Housewives” role. Apparently, while Yolanda was mic’d and filming with the group, she “seemed to fit right in,” — this was a trial run and she has not signed a contract yet, only an appearance release for that particularly day of filming. A video of Yolanda at Wednesday’s event is below!

Yolanda has not only joined up as a full-on Housewife, but that her husband, music producer David Foster, is more than supportive of his wife’s aspirations to get drunk and act catty on national television.

“David and Yolanda got married late last year, and he encouraged her to join the show because he thought it would be fun for her to do,” a source close to the couple reveals.

“Her wedding, which she produced herself was attended by Oprah, Heidi Klum and Barbra Streisand (among others) with performances by Michael Buble, Andrea Bocelli and Donna Summer.”

Interestingly, it seems Yolanda was once involved in a love triangle of sorts between her former hubby and her current one! “About her and Mohamed; he is actually the father of her three children,” our source shares. “She met David through Mohammed. They met at David’s $85 million dollar house, which she fully decorated.”

David and Yolanda still live there together, and that is where David asked her to marry him! Strangely, the couple also actually held their rehearsal dinner at Mohamed’s house!
