Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Exclusive! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Party in Las Vegas — But Who Refused to Go?

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Not when you’re filming a reality show. Several members of the cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills just returned from a two-day trip to Sin City, which was filmed for the show’s upcoming third season.

Here’s what we know: Brandi Glanville, Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Camille Grammer, and newcomer Yolanda Hadid — along with a few other non-Housewife pals — stayed at the Four Seasons, where they holed up in an uber-exclusive private penthouse.

Interestingly, three main cast members – Kim Richards, Adrienne Maloof, and Taylor Armstrong – opted out of the trip. But why?

“Kim said no because of Brandi,” a show insider explains. “She’s intimidated by her. It all stems from what happened between them last season. Kim still isn’t comfortable around her.”

“Also, Kim’s sobriety is still pretty new," the insider notes. "Vegas probably wouldn’t have been the best idea for her, anyway."

“Adrienne didn’t go because she had other commitments already scheduled,” the insider says. “She’s very focused on her brand right now.”

As for troubled Taylor Armstrong? “She said she couldn’t go because she was busy shooting a PSA. But honestly, she’s been taking a lot of flack lately for her partying and she just didn’t want to add any more fuel to the fire. She’s a single mom now and she’s got a lot on her shoulders. She doesn’t need the world thinking she’s willing to leave her little girl at home to party in Las Vegas.”

Despite the missing cast members, we’re told the weekend included plenty of Housewife-style drama — and we can’t wait to watch what happens.
