Good news for those of you Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans out there who prefer your cast a little less dark and a little more sober: rumor has it that Bravo will not ask Taylor Armstrong back to participate in season 4, set to begin filming this April. Nothing's been finalized yet, but there's also been talk about who could potentially replace her. One name that grabbed my attention was Rod Stewart's wife Penny Lancaster who, by the by, is the step-mother of Adrienne Maloof's new baby boy toy.
But first, let's talk about Taylor. She's been hard to watch this season, hasn't she? Even though she's hardly in any episodes anymore (I didn't even miss her during that Vegas trip, did you?), whenever she is on camera, she's drunk. And whenever she gives an interview on the RHOBH, she's talking about how she's a loose canon when she's "had a glass of rosé", by which everyone knows she means "bottle of rosé and a shotty of voddy in the limo on the way over." It's uncomfortable.
Obviously, I don't know that she has a drinking problem, it just seems like it. Same with Kim Richards. She's allegedly sober this season... but ... I mean, am I the only one who thinks she sounds even more doped up than ever? "I can't come because my dog hit me in the nose." People. Please.
I think it's best for everyone if Taylor and Kim leave the show, but I guess they're keeping Kim around because she gives Kyle a reason to cry, and we all know that crying = ratings.
Quick aside about Kyle's crying -- what is with her voice when the water works come on? One minute she sounds perfectly normal, then she gets choked up and sounds like a 95-year-old woman who's dying of emphysema. Gives me the willies.
Anyway, I'm happy to say buh-bye to sad Taylor and her dark, dark storyline. All I ask is that they don't replace her with Faye Resnick. That woman is the worst. She just seems so desperate, you know? So eager to be one of the "cool kids." Girl needs to slow her roll.
As for Rod Stewart's wife, eh, whatever. I don't care either way about her but if she is cast, I hope she's on Team Brandi and not Team Adrienne.
It won't be too long now until the new cast for season 4 is revealed ... the women are allegedly given three weeks notice before filming begins, which puts the announcement about three or four weeks out.
Just in time to fit in a cleanse, right Yolanda?
Do you want Taylor off the show?
