Apparently Bravo producers knew exactly what they were doing when they brought Brandi Glanville on board for Season 2 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. According to Radar Online’s inside sources, Camille Grammer has stepped down as chief mean girl and handed the title over to newbie Brandi.

"Camille felt that she was made to be the resident villain during the first season,” the insider says, “and she is determined to not be seen that way again. Camille is getting along very well with Kyle [Richards] this year, and they have had no arguments at all. Camille has enough drama going on with Kelsey, and she recognizes that she needs her female friends right now.”

While it’s great Camille is finally learning how to behave, it isn’t exactly the best thing for the show. Thankfully, the new girl on the Beverly Hills block is hardly afraid to step in and stir the pot a little. Okay, a lot.

"Brandi is fighting with everyone on the show,” continues the source. “Brandi makes Camille look like a saint. Bravo executives brought Brandi in to spice things up because they felt there wasn’t enough tension and it was very, very boring to watch. The executives were concerned that without Brandi, the ratings would suffer because there wasn’t enough drama … Brandi is all drama, all the time.”

Just the way we like it.
