The ladies of the 90210 have been keeping pretty busy, even in their off season. Here's what has been going on with our tanned Bravo goddesses lately.

The 'B' Is Back
The RHOBH has started filming season three, with returning cast members Taylor Armstrong, Kim and Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Adrienne Maloof and new housewife Yolanda Hadid. News that Brandi Glanville, former "friend of the housewives," was filming with the ladies circulated, but until now, her status as a full-time cast member hadn't been confirmed. Now, an insider at RadarOnline says that Brandi has been given a promotion to full-time cast member.

"Producers love Brandi," the source said. "She's gorgeous, she's funny, outspoken and outrageous, she makes for great TV. They've offered her a full-time role and she will be included in the promotional cast photos and will have her own introductory segment at the beginning of the credits."

Finally: a full-time cast member that can stand up to Kyle.

Yolanda's Divorce
New cast member Yolanda may be married to music mogul David Foster, but that doesn't mean she isn't still raking in the cash from her previous marriage. According to RadarOnline, Yolanda received multiple million-dollar properties and a $3.6 million settlement check and continues to receive $40,000 a month in child and spousal support from her ex-husband, and occasional RHOBH guest star, Mohamed Hadid.

It's a wonder Mohamed still had any money left to throw Pandora Vanderpump such a lavish engagement party.

More Bad News for Taylor
Before Taylor Armstrong's husband passed away last year, he was named in a $1.5 million lawsuit filed against his company MyMedicalRecords.com which Taylor is still dealing with. Now the case is making some progress, but unfortunately it's not in Taylor's favor.

According to The Beverly Hills Courier, the LA Superior Court judge "denied a motion by Armstrong's attorney to throw out part of a settlement agreement between the Armstrongs and MyMedicalRecords.com that called for payment of $1.5 million to either party if one side breached the agreement."

What this means for Taylor is that she will continue to have to battle in court and try to prove she was forced to sign the contracts by her late, abusive husband.
