Bravo was set to make Brandi Glanville a regular on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills before she revealed her kids could not appear, reports say.

Her ex, Eddie Cibrian, and his new wife LeAnn Rimes put the kibosh on that.

Brandi was to graduate from ‘friend’ to full-fledged cast member on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in Season 3, but Bravo yanked the offer.

“Bravo wanted her to have her kids on the show in order to expand story lines,” a source says of Glanville. “But Leann and Eddie wouldn't allow it.”

Eddie and LeAnn, who just marked their one-year anniversary by renewing their vows, started an affair while married to their respective spouses.

They filed for divorce and married each other not long afterward.

Despite the multiple photo-ops where the exes are seen smiling at the kids’ events together, there's still plenty of tension between Eddie's women.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion show finally concluded Monday night with visits from Dana Wilkey, Kim Richards and the house husbands.

If you missed the previous two reunion shows (yes, it's a three-part affair) and all the drama therein, follow these links for recaps of Part I and Part II.

Then, join us as we recap the nude photos, conspiracy theories, and alcohol abuse right here in THG's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills +/- review ...

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Cast

What does Taylor say would give her great solace? The possibility that her husband was murdered. What?!? Minus 20. Okay, she doesn't come out and actually say the words but that's what she's implying.

Then she regales us with tales of Russell. Every week her stories become more horrific. This time she tells of Russell secretly recording her and forcing her to take a polygraph test to prove she wasn't cheating on him.

Then there's a story about Russell assaulting both Taylor and her friends and trying to drown Taylor in the pool but she somehow convinced her friends not to press charges. Some friends. Minus 15.

Brandi voices that these stories don't make sense to her and Camille agrees that the stories are simply horrifying.

So is Taylor telling the whole truth and she was just too terrified to leave or are we missing Russell's side of the story. I suppose we'll never really know.

Moving on from the appalling to the laughable, Dana makes an appearance. Minus 10. Dana's always annoyed me and what's up with the whole Dana / Pam thing? Which is it?

After last week's Part I, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion show continued with more drama last night as Brandi and Taylor join us for the full hour.

Let's recap it all with THG's +/- review!

Last week they took shots at Lisa but now it's time for Brandi Glanville bashing. We like Brandi. Yes, she's brash but she's also fun, entertaining, and says what she thinks to someone's face instead of behind their back. There's a concept.

No wonder she doesn't quite fit in with the Beverly Hills crowd. Plus 20.

Brandi in the House

Brandi hit the scene this season with high heels, no bra, and even on crutches she had legs that wouldn't quit. So being younger and prettier meant that she immediately made enemies and it was wonderful entertainment. Plus 10.

So Andy takes us back to Game Night where Kim and Kyle's mean sides came out and Brandi called Kyle a bitch and threatened to kill Kim. Ah, good times.

At least Kyle's owning her mean girl title that night so Plus 8.

Even Lisa admits she was mortified when she saw the actual footage. She backed Kyle but hadn't known how she acted. 

But Kyle's quick to backtrack when Brandi calls her on hiding her crutches. She didn't do it, her sister did. Yeah, but she still walked off leaving Brandi sitting there not knowing where her crutches were.

That was simply childish and she's not owning up to that one. Minus 10.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills may have aired its season finale on Monday, but there's A LOT more from these women to come.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 2 Promo Pic

In a new sneak peek at the upcoming three-part reunion special - yes, three parts, to air on Jan. 30, Feb. 6, and Feb. 13 - we see Kyle refer to herself as a cunt; Lisa accuse Brandi of wanting to sleep with her husband; Andy Cohen aske Taylor Armstrong if she thinks her husband was murdered; and then, in a separately-taped interview, Kim Richards admit:

I'm an alcoholic.

The reality star entered rehab a few weeks ago and recently emerged, presumably a changed woman. We're sure to see whether or not that's the case on season two.

WATCH THE VIDEO PREVIEW OF THE REUNION BELOW.

After a fairly dark season with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ,we're finally headed towards the light for the finale and thanks to Pandora, it's not white but pink.

Let's break down the event of the season in THG's +/- review!!

But before we attend the wedding, let's hit the bathroom. I have to laugh at Adrienne's horror when Paul invites her in to help with his enema. Plus 10 for her reaction.

I don't know what Paul's thinking but that's so not happening.

Adrienne Maloof, Paul Nassif

Other than airing an entertaining public service announcement on getting a colonoscopy, is this segment really necessary? Minus 8 because I don't think anyone needs to watch several minutes of Paul passing air. Maybe we can all get that IV sedation to go.

Over at Kyle's, she and Mauricio must be discussing which dress will look the least flattering on her because I can't stand any of her choices, least of all the one he picked out. Minus 9. For a woman with money Kyle could use better taste in clothes.

Camille doesn't have that problem. She just looks better and better this season. Life without Kelsey obviously agrees with her because she's rockin' that dress. Plus 10.

Back at wedding central, Lisa's starting to freak out a little because Kevin Lee isn't there. His assistant Anie looks quite capable but Kevin failed to mention he'd be manning another event up until a couple of hours before Pandora's wedding. Not cool. Minus 15.

But everything moves right along and I almost expected twin makeup artists but triplets? Plus 7. Only in Beverly Hills.

They're back. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have returned to the mainland at last. Can Kim and Kyle keep it together long enough to get through one party?

Let's find out, and break down the tears, in THG's patented +/- recap!

It's the grand opening party of Lisa's new lounge at Sur and all of the Housewives are invited. But the real fun comes from the unexpected guests ...

Lisa's scrambling with the finishing touches but Sur looks lovely so Plus 8 for a job well done. But as Ken tries to give her a congratulatory hug, she's too busy to enjoy it and brushes it off. She jokes that Ken can get his cuddle next year.

Lisa and Ken

These two are so funny they earn an additional Plus 5.

Everyone starts to arrive and Lisa and Brandi immediately poke fun at one another. Lisa's just happy Brandi's wearing more than a string bikini. Brandi goes to flirt with Ken who says he's much too short for Brandi, especially in her heels.

Lisa reminds him he's also much too married. These three are great when they let their hair down. Plus 10.

Brandi quickly realizes that a waitress at the event was her ex-husband, Eddie's mistress (no, not LeAnn Rimes). Well, that's awkward. Brandi tries to play it off but who wants to be around the woman their husband was screwing around with.

Lisa does the right thing and gives the waitress the night off. Plus 7 for quickly diffusing what could have been a bad situation.

The party in Hawaii continues but in true Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fashion, there's plenty of arguing, drama and tears to go with that wine.

Let's break down all the latest drama in THG's +/- recap!

Kim Richards and Adrienne Maloof

We open with Adrienne and Paul taking a romantic hike along the beautiful island of Lanai. Adrienne admits that it's been years since they've held hands. Minus 9. That's just sad. These two obviously care for one another. They need to start having more alone time.

Kim and Ken finally arrive a day and a half late and that's when we suddenly have a contest for which sister can be more rude. 

First, Kim and Ken don't tell anyone they've arrived. Minus 7. It's simply polite to pick up the hotel phone and let your sister and host know you've finally made it.

But Kyle hears them in the next room and in her best impersonation of a 13 year old girl, runs to put her ear to the wall. She even runs outside in her towel to see if she can spot them from the balcony. Minus 10 because that's just pathetic.

Then Kim and Ken are the last ones to arrive to Mauricio's birthday dinner. Are these two ever on time to anything?

When the party drama ends, the trip begins as we follow The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on their Hawaiian adventure. Will the islands survive the cattiness of these intoxicated divas? We break it all down in this week's +/- recap!

The White Party continues after Taylor and Russell are tossed to the curb and Kyle finally stops the waterworks. Plus 10 because I'm not sure how much more of her sobbing I can take.

Plus 8 to Adrienne for sticking up for Camille. Taylor claims her words were exaggerated. Russell swears it's all a lie. Off camera Taylor backpedals and says the allegations of abuse are true. With all the different versions flying around it's hard to keep it all straight.

Taylor Armstrong's Lips

But Minus 15 because it's hard to concentrate on anything with Taylor's lips filling up the screen. Someone ask her to go easy on the injections before Donald Duck gets jealous.

Back at Kyle's the party continues. Does anyone else find the Fatburger tent out of place? I'm all for a good burger but it's such an odd product placement. Minus 10 because it looks like the ladies will push almost anything for a buck.

When the party is over the packing begins and it's off to Hawaii for Mauricio's birthday. 

Oh my God. Jiggy can't go. Will Ken and Lisa survive the trip without their beloved fur ball?

Just when you might think a party can't get more dramatic than Brandi's Malibu blowout, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills go and prove you wrong.

This time it's not so much about the crazy catfights as it is about who gets "Uninvited" and we'll recap all the angst in THG's official, weekly +/- review!

It's Kyle's annual White Party and despite that she's had a year to plan the soiree, she leaves everything for the last couple of weeks.

As workmen are still setting things up two hours before the event, Kyle is lamenting to Mauricio that the chandeliers aren't lit. He simply shrugs and says they're working on it.

Taylor Armstrong Crying

Hey, the guy's doing all he can to look ruggedly handsome with his stubbled chin and white outfit and I'm not complaining. Plus 10 for looking handsome and remaining calm amidst the chaos. That particular talent will come in handy later on.

Pre-party, Camille calls Adrienne to let her know that Russell sent her an e-mail threatening to sue her for her "slanderous" comments at Lisa's tea party.

Camille shows her attorneys who tell her not to have any contact with Russell or Taylor. Plus 5 for sound advice but since they're all suppose to be at the same party tonight that's going to be a little awkward.

Thus starts a game of phone tag and no one can reach Taylor. Turns out she and Russell are flying back from Vegas just to make Kyle's party.

In the meantime the party's starting and the Housewives are having a group freak out with everyone worrying about Russell suing them. By the time Russell and Taylor arrive the entire tribe accosts them on the front walkway.

So are we all still in recovery mode after Taylor Armstrong's complete meltdown at Brandi Glanville's Malibu party last week? To see how The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills pull themselves together, come along for THG's official +/- recap!

NOTE: You can win a FREE Kooba purse ($500 value), courtesy of THG and Bravo by answering these questions about last night's episode! Follow the link to enter!

Meltdown? What meltdown?

Taylor's a little fuzzy on the details. Over lunch with new BFF Lisa, she mentions she was so drunk at the party she doesn't really remember what she said or did.

She seems content to put the blame on Camille and her over the top friend D.D.

A Taylor Armstrong Image

Lisa's take on all of this? Let's go to Vegas. Minus 8. Perhaps Vegas isn't the best destination for someone who has partied so hard they've blacked out. 

But a big Plus 20 because we witnessed Taylor eating something. The woman who takes skinny to a whole new level actually had some pizza! High priced, gourmet pizza but pizza nevertheless. Maybe a little more food and a little less alcohol will help stabilize her erratic moods. 

Speaking of food, Adrienne and Paul are doing a guest spot on The Doctors to talk about how a power couple maintains a healthy lifestyle. Off camera Adrienne calls Paul out for his unhealthy behavior. His idea of several small meals includes popcorn, candy and other junk foods. I like Paul more with every episode. Plus 7.
