The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump… Discuss Shana at Villa Blanca

On the next Real Housewives of Beverly Hills...

Normally SH waits until the day before OR the day of the episode to post the upcoming video.  HOWEVER… this video, which will air next week, is unbelievable.

Kyle Richards, for some unknown reason or reasons, has become BFF with Shana/TraylorTrash and is “discussing” with Kyle’s former BFF, Lisa Vanderpump, Shana’s oh-so-delicate wounded feelings… and how Lisa may have wounded her even more.

Lisa is not falling for Shana’s crap and is trying to explain this to Kyle; BUT… Shana got Kyle snowed and Kyle is “protecting” her new BFF.  Note to Kyle:  You’re next on the list to be lil Kennedy’s godparent… just a warning!

Is there a clause in the Housewives contract, particularly in Beverly Hills, where it states that a participant in the franchise cannot research a fellow castmate?  It is just so hard to believe that no one on this show has done the least bit of research on scammer con artist, Shana “Ima FORD” TraylorTrash!

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Taylor Armstrong and Another Beauty Product Tainted…

Well, here’s another beauty product I’ll never buy…

DAVI LUXURY BRAND GROUP, INC.  has appointed Taylor Armstrong to be a spokesperson for DAVI  branded luxury anti-aging skin care line.   Taylor Armstrong, who has recently gained recognition as one of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” is both a seasoned businesswoman and beauty product connoisseur:

“I am truly honored to have this unique opportunity to be a part of DAVI’s success and growth into the global luxuryl skin care market,” remarked Taylor Armstrong. “Not only do I believe in the efficacy of their anti-aging skin care line using the powerful antioxidants found in grapes and the highest quality natural ingredients of any products, but I am also confident that my role will support the company’s passion and vision for the brand becoming a worldwide leader in luxury skin care.”

Taylor Armstrong Television personality Taylor Armstrong competes in the 19th Annual Deer Valley Celebrity Skifest the Deer Valley Resort  on December 4, 2010 in Salt Lake City, Utah.                         Oh, just a second… I can’t breathe… yeah, another company fell for it and they’re gonna PAY me!  Me, super-scammer artiste… ShanaHughesTaylorFordArmstrong!!!   Oh, those companies that have me frontin’ their products are just dumbasses…

Added Parrish Medley, CEO of DAVI:

“Our appointment of Taylor Armstrong as a spokesperson for DAVI is twofold: for starters, she is an entrepreneur who understands the full spectrum of what it takes to build a successful brand; secondly, we believe she is an influential voice for those looking to connect with our world class line of luxury skin care products.”

NOTE TO PARRISH MEDLEY:  You have hired a pro-super-scammer con artist to front your business.  Do not be surprised if your company tanks because of your decision to have ShanaTraylorTrash involved with your company.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Shana/Taylor… Strange

Daily Pilot

I was reading this article from a local OC paper about the Marconi’s, who have produced a charity event for the past 13 years, when who is mentioned in mid-article, but Shana/Taylor!

I’m thinkin’… what the hell is she doing in Orange County?  Then I realized that Shana/Taylor has taken her 15-minutes and is stretching every second out of them, anything it takes to keep herself in the public eye every minute of every day… so it’s worth it for her to drive to OC for a photo op.   HOWEVER, no one at the event took her picture!

But, you know Shana/Taylor… she would have made sure that ‘Christine,’ the ‘creator’ and keeper of S/T’s ‘official fan site’ would definitely have the photo of S/T at this event, but there is no photo!  The author of the article made a big deal out of S/T’s dress and the fact that she was there, so I’m surprised that S/T didn’t have photo evidence…  so why was she there???

From The Daily Pilot:

“The party would not be complete without the star-studded appearance of former “The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Lauri Peterson, who attracted plenty of attention.

OC HOUSEWIFE: Lauri and George Peterson.George and Lauri Peterson

Moments later, from the cast of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Taylor Armstrong appeared wearing a multi-colored sequined mini dress, keeping with the Mardi Gras theme.

When she moved, the dress flashed like a beam of laser light.  Of course, she was wearing her Louboutin 5-inch heels. A twenty-something woman in the crowd named Sarah Oxblood screamed out, “OMG … she’s my favorite!”  Armstrong is known to legions of fans across the country for her enormous smile, thanks in part to a little help from Dr. Lip Injection.  You might say this was not your typical Orange County conservative philanthropic evening.”

The full Daily Pilot story… here.

Shana/Taylor’s Official Fan Site:  I can’t stand this scammer, so you’ll have to look it up yourself…

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Taylor Armstrong is A Big Fat Liar… Who’s the Godmother???

One of the statements that I’ve had difficulty verifying is the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ Shana/Taylor Armstrong’s claim that Adrienne Maloof is godmother to her daughter, Kennedy.  Kennedy is 4 years old and if Adrienne is her godmother, then Adrienne and Shana/Taylor’s friendship is at least that old, which counters other statements that say that Shana/Taylor met as castmates for the show or that they met via little Kennedy’s pre-school…

Watch as our little grifter, Shana/Taylor smiles while nodding her head at Adrienne while Andy asks the question, trying to get her to say ‘yes’ in front of the cameras.

UPDATE:  September 23, 2011… The following video was taken down by Bravo…  sorry!

http://widget.bravotv.com/singleclip/singleclip_v1.swf?CXNID=1000004.10035NXC&WID=4657041ec2a2cf53&clipID=1281640

However… Adrienne may be catching on to Shana/Taylor’s con behavior and answers the question as you would expect Adrienne to answer… firmly and diplomatically.

Asking your wealthy ‘friend’ to be godparent to your child… a great way to stay attached to the money.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Shana Hughes Taylor Ford Armstrong… “Taylor Armstrong Big Fat Liar”

It all comes together now about the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member, Ms. Taylor ‘I’ll get all Oklahoma on you‘ Armstrong…  IMO, I believe that we have another big-time pro-scammer couple in our midst… and Taylor Armstrong is a big fat liar…

‘Taylor’ before filming started

When the producers of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills were casting the show, Taylor Armstrong went by the name of Taylor ‘FORD’ Armstrong (see previous post: http://stoopidhousewives.com/2011/01/19/a-look-back-at-rhobh-from-casting-to-filming/).  When filming started, Taylor dropped the ‘FORD‘ and she hasn’t mentioned that name again (either on websites, on RHOBH or interviews) which I thought that was kinda strange… BUT, let’s go on

As RHOBH ‘insiders’ are aware, Russell Armstrong has a very shady past (see tab ‘The MEN of real housewives’ , ‘Russell Armstrong’, on masthead above) and as RHOBH viewers are aware, his relationship with Taylor on RHOBH shows him to be disingenuous, unkind and apathetic toward Taylor… BUT, let’s go on

Russell and ‘Taylor’ Armstrong

Growing up in Oklahoma, Taylor Armstrong’s name was Shana Hughes.  The question about her name change was not fully answered until recently when she was on the January 19, 2011 episode of  The Wendy Williams Show. Wendy asked and Taylor answered that her name growing up was Shana Taylor… no mention of the last name of ‘Hughes‘ or ‘FORD‘… and that everyone called her by her last name ‘Taylor‘, so it was natural and less confusing that she just switch her last name ‘Taylor‘ to be her first name because that’s what she got used to answering to and that’s why she changed her name from ‘Shana‘ to ‘Taylor’…  just trust me on this as I’ve searched the following sites for full episodes to document this info:  hulu, youtube, bet.com, wendyshow.com, goodlookvideos.com, tvguide.com, etc, etc… (please email me if you can find full episodes)… I’m so ticked with myself that I erased that episode from my DVR… BUT, let’s go on

Shana ‘Taylor Armstrong’ Hughes…1989 graduate of Union HS, Tulsa OK

HOWEVER… Ms. Oklahoma was asked the same question one day later by Andy Cohen on Watch What Happen Live and she gives a TOTALLY DIFFERENT EXPLANATION…

Really, you would think that she could keep her stories straight… BUT, let’s go on

On the RHOBH finale, Russell and Taylor’s marriage gets another bad rap when after Russell gives Taylor his lame birthday toast, Camera Lisa says that ‘she’s glad that Russell is married to Taylor and not her‘… Camera Lisa also says that ‘maybe Taylor likes the Beverly Hills lifestyle more than she cares about her own happiness.’

RHBHoriginalpoint.jpgKim, ‘Taylor’ and Lisa

Everyone is wondering why Taylor is staying with Russell… Wendy Williams comes straight to the point and ASKS Taylor why she puts up with Russell… from January 2011…

Right after, Wendy asks Taylor about her name change, but as I mentioned previously, full episodes are not available…

WHAT I THINK IS UP WITH SHANA HUGHES TAYLOR FORD ARMSTRONG:

Shana Hughes graduates from Union HS in Tulsa, OK in 1989.  1994 she graduates college and works for Pfizer Pharmaceuticals (she may have been known as Shanna Hughes or Shanna Ford when she was with Pfizer) and Medtronics.   Shana obviously liked the last name ‘Ford’ as she led people to believe that she was from the auto business ‘Ford’s from Detroit. (This really made me laugh, as everyone who knows anyone in the auto business knows that everyone lives in Bloomfield Hills…not Detroit.)

From the Taylor Armstrong Official Fan Page:  “Upon arriving in California, Taylor Armstrong set up a textile business of her own. (Upon arriving in CA, Taylor worked for CA Swimwear…) She fulfilled her longtime dream of being an entrepreneur, starting out by working at a start-up commerce company in Florida. (Where she and Russell tried to scam Allison, the author of the email in previous post…) She also picked up a few things by working for Pfizer and Medtronic along the way.”  In 2005 Taylor married Russell Armstrong and together, they have a four-year-old daughter named Kennedy.  (http://www.taylorarmstrongfansite.com/) Yeah… she has a fan site…

March 2010:  Taylor-Ford Armstrong was confirmed a cast member of RHOBH: (http://www.thedailytruffle.com/2010/03/adrienne-maloof-and-taylor-ford-armstrong-rumored-to-be-bravos-last-two-real-housewives-of-beverly-hills/)

September 2010:  Still using the name Taylor Ford-Armstrong (http://www.thedailytruffle.com/2010/09/taste-of-beverly-hills-2010/#more-29160… “new Real Housewives of Beverly Hills couple Taylor Ford and Russell Armstrong”)

November 2010:  Taylor and Russell invest in Malibu Recovery Center (http://67.59.172.92/article/Local_News/Local_News/The_Real_Caring_Housewife_of_Beverly_Hills_Taylor_Armstrong/72549)… this may not mean anything, but it’s good-to-know info…

So, one of the big questions is WHY is Taylor staying with Russell?…                      The answer dawned on me when I saw the following photo… IMO, photos say a lot:  First, I was struck by her expression.  She looks like a deer caught in headlights and also looks somewhat embarrassed and scared all at the same time… and then I looked at her arm. She is squeezing Russell’s hand so tight that the veins in her arm are popping up, also notice that SHE is holding Russell’s hand and it’s not reciprocated.  It’s almost like she’s saying, “Oh, God… do these people know about us?”

Wow!  What a kiss!  Taylor is dominant and Russell looks like he would rather be scraping his elbows on a cheese grater than pretending he is interested in his wife.

Taylor Armstrong and Russell Armstrong - Premiere Of Columbia Pictures' "The Green Hornet" - Arrivals

Taylor is again dominant with her hand in a fist on Russell’s shoulder and Russell looks like he would rather put his head into a bag of rabid monkeys than pose for a photo.

IMO, Taylor ‘shana hughes taylor ford’ Armstrong and Russell Armstrong are pro scammers who have scammed their way to the top… they think they’ve hit it big time in Bev-er-lee Hills.   Taylor can’t leave Russell… not because of their daughter, Kennedy… but because Russell knows what’s going on between them and they’re in this together.

Kennedy and Russell do a DanceOK… shoot me, but little Kennedy isn’t that cute…

Just for the hell of it, here’s more stuff I found about these two:

Here’s Taylor and Russell’s House… it’s the one with the empty pool:  http://virtualglobetrotting.com/map/taylor-russell-armstrongs-house/view/?service=1

Here’s Russell and a healthier looking Taylor with Prince Charles:image description (for a larger photo see: http://www.russellarmstrong.info/)  I’ll bet Russell never thought anyone would find that photo…   Makes me wonder if Taylor is the answer to the blind item post (http://stoopidhousewives.com/2011/01/19/1552/)… she does look much skinnier now than the Prince Charles photo   Hmmmmm…

Taylor made a very quick mention on WWHL that she is now working with beautyticket.com (which is a site that I LOVE… YSL nail polish never chips and they sell it on their site for at least 50% off…). Of course, I emailed them to find out if Taylor was indeed associated with beautyticket… and here’s what they said:

YES – we are thrilled to announce that Taylor Armstrong has been named Chief Creative Director here at BeautyTicket.com.  Look for Taylor’s Tips and Tricks and Picks coming soon as well as videos showing how to get her looks and special kits made exclusivly for Taylor here at BeautyTicket.com.  We are really excited about all the ideas she is bringing to the company.

I was blown away that Taylor is their ‘creative director’…are you kidding me beautyticket???  I wouldn’t take cooking tips from her let alone BEAUTY tips… has beautyticket LOOKED at Taylor lately???   Anyway, I replied…

My reply:  I asked about Ms. Armstrong because I wanted to make sure that the information she mentioned on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen was correct.  As a frequent customer of beautyticket.com, I am extremely disappointed that you would have such a person representing your brand and I doubt very much if I will remain a customer.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: “Taylor Armstrong” Taylor… shana hughes taylor ford… Armstrong, “Taylor Armstrong is a Big Fat Liar”

One of the sites on my ‘must read’ list is realfauxhousewives.com.  The ‘Boss Lady‘ definitely has a way with words and always has something interesting to say.  WELL…I came across this photo of Russell and Taylor Armstrong on her site and it became crystal clear to me what’s going on with these two…

Taylor+Armstrong+Russell+Armstrong+Taste+Beverly+qn2rWv9sE1fl                                   Russell and Shana Hughes/Shana Taylor/Shana Ford/Shana Taylor Ford  Armstrong

BUT…before I get to what I have to say (coming in a separate post as I’m still verifying information), read what another fan of http://www.realfauxhousewives.com has to say about her and her husband meeting up with Russell and Taylor in 2004 in Boca:

“Recently a reader who goes by Allison found my site and stated she met Chankla Face and her husband back in 2004 at a restaurant in Miami and has a picture with them. I immediately emailed her and she responded back.

She was unable to send the picture for me to post, because her husband wasn’t down with that shit, since he don’t want to be associated with Chankla and Russell . Can’t blame him. But Allison is trying to convice him . She did however, give  me some more details on Chankla’s ghetto ass, gutter skank behavior. And how Russell was trying to pass Chankla off as  a royalty,  trustfund bitch,  from the Ford family in Oklahoma  and blah blah blah.

However my reader could tell that Chankla was a fake ass, trailer park fronter, because the bitch was all drunk off her ass acting like a skank  right out of Jerry Springer and making out with Russell in the back of these people’s Mercedes, whom they never met  !  Chankla was all a  rude,drunk,  condescending, obnoxious bitch and was not talking to Allison or her husband but instead making rude remarks about them to Russell. And not only that but get this!! Those two con artist got up to go use the bathroom and apparently jumped out through the bathrooms back windows and left Allison and her husband with  a huge ass bill !!! I BET! Specially with all that booze that skank must of drank!

All these shenanigans that Russell and Chankla were pulling out of their ass, were  geared to convince Allison and her husband to invest in some scam with Russell. So he can pay Chankla Face’s final surgery so that Dr. Frankenstein can completely make her look like those crocodile skin boots, she got in Mexico including the leather complexion and all.

Here is the email Allison send me, she said I could post it enjoy :

I love your website! It’s all about the ”Real” Truth!
Yes, I do have a photo of myself, my husband, Taylor, and Russell from back in 2004. My husband and I live in Boca Raton and we met Taylor and Russel in Boca and then we all drove down (in my husband’s car) to Miami (South Beach) to have dinner. At the time, Taylor and Russell were just dating. He was trying to get my husband to invest in some crazy deal – luckily my husband decided against it.
Taylor was very aloof – she did not say much about what she did for a living and her life – she was also rude and condescending. However, she did make sure that we were aware she was Taylor “Ford” from the Ford Motor Family of Oklahoma. I had such a strong feeling it was not true – she seemed more like white-trash dressed in Gucci than a trust-fund person – but I did not say anything about my feelings. Russell insisted to my husband that she was from the “Ford” family. They obviously were trying to impress us. If only Taylor had some manners, then perhaps we would have had some positive thoughts about her!
It was the worst night….because Taylor was so bizarre – she was so obnoxious and was very rude – I had never seen someone be that rude in my entire life. She was screaming (trying to be cute and flirty with Russell) in the car and then started making out with Russell in the back seat of our Mercedes. Russell was such a wimp…he didn’t even say anything to her about her rude and obnoxious behavior.
She was drunk when we picked them up at the hotel they were staying at – and she proceeded to get even more drunk at the restaurant (Prime 112 in South Beach). She did not speak to my husband or me and she kept making snide remarks about us to Russell (all while we were across from them at the same table). It also seemed like she was “high” on something, by the way she was acting, but I can not confirm that for sure. Finally, half way through the dinner they both got up to use the restroom and never came back! They left us with a huge bill (mostly from all the drinks they ordered) and when we called Russell to find out what happened to them, he did not answer his cell. The next day Russell called my husband – on the voicemaill he said that Taylor wanted to leave early to meet up with some celebrity – I forget which celebrity it was - who was in South Beach that night. My husband did not return the call. He was extremely turned off by their behavior.
I forgot about this terrible night, but when I saw Taylor on RHBH I knew I had met her somewhere – when I found out that her maiden name was “Ford” I remembered all of it. When I learned online that her real name is Shana Hughes Armstrong, I could not stop laughing!  She was so pretentious and snobby the night we were with her and it turns out she is a fraud!  The fact that she changed her entire name to appear as an “important” person is so sad, because it verifies just how very insecure she is – and also how much of a “social climber” she is.
After I realized this was the same Taylor that my husband and I met six years ago, I went through an old pile of photos and found a picture of the four of us, taken at Prime 112 restaurant in South Beach.
My husband does not want a picture of himself with Russell on the internet, becaues he does not want to be associated with Russell (Russell does not have the cleanest reputation in the financial industry) – but I promise I will try to talk him into it!
By the way, back in 2004 she had those horrendous lips too!  She didn’t have the extensions in and she wasn’t as skinny as she is now (she looks anorexic now).
Just thought you might find this interesting!
All the best,”

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: A Look Back…From Casting to Filming…From “The Daily Truffle”

The Daily Truffle is written by a group of friends who grew up in Beverly Hills and has been privy to inside info about the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills from the very beginning…   they were even asked to help cast the show!!!  Please visit their site which can be found on the right, listed on “blogroll.”

Taylor Armstrong to be the “business woman” in the group.  (http://www.prweb.com/releases/prweb2010/09/prweb4449204.htm)

Let’s take a look back at The Daily Truffle‘s posts about how the RHOBH evolved… from the casting call to filming

March 21, 2010… the original casting call:

> UNTITILED BRAVO SHOW
>
> Evolution Media, producers of “The Real Housewives of Orange County,”
> is casting its next show in the Beverly Hills area. We are seeking
> upscale, affluent women living fabulous and glamorous lives.
>
> Bravo is looking for outgoing, exciting, strong, focused women who
> reside in and around the Beverly Hills area that want to share their
> lives. We are looking for women who are lively and energetic, with
> defined opinions and views. Our featured women should have busy lives,
> be involved with the community, have a strong work ethic, and an active
> social calendar. Most importantly, they should be enjoying the good
> life.
>
> The women, significant others and families must be open to sharing
> their experiences with the producers and the television audience.
>
> Please email your: name, age, a bit about you, where you live, a
> current photo(s) and a contact phone number!

I immediately thought of a few names that could really elevate the show from the nasty not-so-real or even realisitcly wealthy Real Housewives elsewhere on their other shows. Money is hardly about show, showing off and showing down. Money in Beverly Hills does not give you bragging rights – in fact it’s purpose is to allow you to live far above that.

For a very long time, Bravo and Evolution deliberated over 2 groups of 5 very qualified women. And along the way word on the streets of Beverly Hills changed and swayed … but it became very clear Kyle Richards would be the shoe-in.

Kyle is beautiful and very well known around town. She is sisters of Kim Ricahrds, a very much loved child actress from Race to Witch Mountain and also Tuff Turf with James Spador! Kyle and her husband Mauricio Umansky were living in Bel Air near Mulholland – though I hear the home was recently for sale.

The second Beverly Hills Housewife we heard about is a woman named Lisa Todd who was once Lisa Vanderpump and quite a sexy dish on Baywatch. Lisa married Kenneth Todd, a realtor, and lives in Beverly Park. Lisa and Kyle are said to be good friends.

The third Beverly Hills Housewife I got so excited about, I practically fell of my chair, is really the one to watch when the show airs, and even as it begins taping this month in March.

This woman is Adrienne Maloof.

Adrianne Maloof is important for so many reasons to Bevelry Hills, California and the West Coast for indusrial, financial and social reasons. She is the daughter of Colleen & George J. Maloof, Sr., and sister of the four Maloof brothers Joe Maloof, Gavin Maloof, George J. Maloof, Jr. and Phil Maloof.

These are big names in Las Vegas and throughout California. They have owned the Sacramento Kings and the home stadium, ARCO Arena, and The Palms hotel and casino in Las Vegas. George Maloof, Jr. is the most high-profile of all the children and is a regular with younger celebrity circles, like Paris Hilton, etc.

E! News recently claimed to know the final two housewives, as had numerous other websites throughout the last year, including Nicole Richie’s mom, Kelsey Grammer’s wife and Kyle Richard’s sister, but we have heard nothing that convinces us yet. Obviously Kyle’s sister could be an obvious choice, but I wonder why Bravo would  loose 1/5 of their story lines since the two are always together and that could really just up being one for the price of two. We have also heard one of Adrienne’s bff’s could be cast, name will not be mentioned PER BRAVO’s polite request. And the rumors about Kelsey Grammer’s wife and Nicole Richie’s mom … well, we havent heard anything about those two … yet.

Production of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills officially begins in March and the cast has a 10 month commitment, and The Daily Truffle is sooooooo excited!!!

TOLDJA!! BRAVO finally announces the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!!

by: Caroline – August 31st, 2010 26 Comments

UPDATE: DECEMBER 13, 2010: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has spurred casting for a second show – this time a multipart documentary about women in Beverly Hills Read more here.

As many of you know, The Daily Truffle is written by a bunch of friends who grew up together in Beverly Hills. So of course it has been common knowlege on the “street” for quite some time this show was happening! We were even asked to help cast it and suggested many of the women who were in the final 10!! Bravo choose 6 of those 10:

  1. Adrienne Maloof (who we know as the Maloof’s sister who throws the best Christmas party in town)
  2. Kyle & Kim Richards (who we know as Nicky & Paris Hilton’s aunts)
  3. Lisa Todd Vanderpump (who we know as a Baywatch babe and co-owner of a newer restaurant on Camden and Brighton)
  4. Taylor Ford Armstrong (who we know as a philanthropist and Kyle’s friend)
  5. Camille Grammer (who we dont know but hear is Kelsey Grammer’s ex wife and a former playboy bunny)

Here is our post from 2009:

“We hear Kyle & Kim Richards, aunts of Paris Hilton, are signed to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills … shhhhh!”

Kathy Hilton, Kim Richards, Kyle Richards – Photo by © Glenn Harris

Though Bravo has not confirmed it, I’ve have heard several reports that at least one of Kathy Hilton’s beautiful sisters could very well be the belle of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which officially begins production in March!

Bravo has been deliberating between two groups of five hopeful Beverly Hills housewives  since the Spring but I have just gotten word production will begin in March, which means its decision time!

“Bravo wanted to build the cast around some Hiltons, yes Kyle is one of them, I think Kim too … but it ain’t over till the fat lady sings ” – an anonymous source close to the project told The Daily Truffle

My source also tells me Lisa Todd, owner of Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills, and a close friend of Kyle, is in the running as well.

Sources also say it’s possible Kim will be cast or else she could be featured in sister Kyle’s scenes.

The source says: “Production officially begins in March and the cast has a 10 month commitment. Bravo is continuing with callbacks now for the remaining spots on the show.”

Kim Richards and Kyle Richards, sisters of Kathy Hilton, is also the aunt of Paris Hilton and Nicky Hilton! First Paris, then Kathy, even Nicky’s boyfriend David Katzenberg has a semi-scripted show on MTV now called “Hard Times”. It makes sense that Kathy’s sisters would follow.

Kyle Richards (born in Hollywood in 1969) is an L.A. native and is five years apart from Kim Richards (born 1964) and ten years apart from Kathy Hilton (nee Kathy Richards, born 1959).

Kyle has been on niece Paris’s two reality series The Simple Life and My New BFF. She is married to Mauricio Umansky, a realtor in Beverly Hills and Beverly Park, at Hilton and Hyland, the same place Paris’ dad Rick Hilton works.

Kim and Kyle were both accomplished actresses – here are some of my favorite credits …

Kim Richards: Escape to Witch Mountain (1975), No Deposit, No Return (1976) and Return to Witch Mountain (1978), Black Snake Moan (2006), Tuff Turf (1985), Meatballs Part II (1984), “Diff’rent Strokes” (1979), “Little House on the Prairie” (1974)

James Spader, Kim Richards and Robert Downey Jr. in”Tuff Turf”

Kyle Richards: “ER” (21 episodes, 1998-2006), “Little House on the Prairie”, Halloween (1979), and episodes of “Love Boat”, “Fantasy Island”, and “Beverly Hills, 90210″. She also played the younger version of her sister’s character in “Escape to Witch Mountain (1975)”. Both sisters were on “Disneyland.”

Kyle and her husband Mauricio Umansky were living in Bel Air near Mulholland – the home is currently for sale for $2,925,000, lowered from $3,450,000.

Lisa Todd aka Lisa Vanderpump Todd co-owns Villa Blanca in Bev Hills with her husband Kevin Todd, a British restaurateur. Lisa is/was an actress; she appeared in “Baywatch” during the mid-1990′s.

If these two are in the show, we will likely be visiting them at their really pretty home in Beverly Park. Pictures of Lisa Todd’s house in Beverly Park:

Last year, we were told the network was still deliberating over two groups of five ladies that had been selected over the summer. Bravo’s Real Housewives of Orange County was cast in much the same process – asking casting directors to develop two story-lines around two different casts – and then letting Bravo executives and producers pick between the two.

I am guessing Bravo was so amped up about the Richards sisters (who wouldnt be!), they have been working with them to develop an agreeable storyline and maybe even have cater to their schedules. Bravo has been quiet about their unexpected delay in casting and it’s almost certainly something along these lines.

The network’s call backs for those extra three spots are still happening – I’ve heard reports on that I’ve been asked not to discuss tell the cast is solidified. But just for fun, here are some hints at the contending finalists – keeping them extremely vague and will NEVER reveal those not cast unless they email me personally at caroline@dailytruffle.net and tell me it’s ok. Best of luck ladies! – add us on facebook! http://www.facebook.com/dailytruffle
