Last Thursday, Camille Grammer and Taylor Armstrong attended fellow Housewife star Kyle Richards’ book signing at Barnes and Noble at The Grove, a posh outdoor mall in Los Angeles. “The only reason that Camille and Taylor went to the book signing was because they knew the press would be there, and they would get their pictures taken,” a source close to the Housewives tells RadarOnline.com. “Taylor and Camille wouldn’t have gone out to dinner with Kyle, these women aren’t friends, at all. It’s all done for the show.”
The Bravo show has had a huge ratings bump this season, with Russell Armstrong‘s tragic suicide, details of which haven’t aired yet, to Brandi Glanville fighting with the Richards sisters to Lisa and Adrienne Maloof‘s rivalry.
“These women are all very different, and the only thing they have in common is the show, period,” the source says. “Bravo wants to bring new cast members on board for season three that are actually friends with the ladies. Expect Kim Richards to not return for the next season, she is battling to stay sober, and she just can’t be relied on at this point.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, it is likely that Kelsey Grammer’s ex-wife will not be returning next season either.
“Producers are asking Lisa Vanderpump, Adrienne and Kyle if any of their wealthy female friends would be interested in appearing on the show,” a Bravo network insider tells RadarOnline.com. “It’s an open secret that Camille most likely won’t be back for a third season. She came off as such a bitch during season one, whereas this season she has been very reserved, and she isn’t exactly eager to return.
“Camille has some other projects in the works, but she needs to get released from her Bravo contract before she can pursue those.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Monday nights on Bravo.
