The drama continues between Real Housewives' Taylor Armstrong and her late husband's family, Kristin Cavallari stokes rumors that she'll be starring in this season of Dancing with the Stars, Kris Jenner gets even harder to keep up with, and more. Here’s your “Reality Bytes” for Saturday, August 27, 2011.

Armstrong vs. Armstrong - The Sequel Russell Armstrong’s family has been very vocal about their anger toward their late son’s estranged wife, Taylor Armstrong, but no one - especially Taylor - knew just how pissed they were with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star until they stood her up at Russell's memorial!

According to an insider, though there were complaints that Taylor hadn’t included them in the plans for the Hollywood Hills service, Russell’s family was busy secretly planning their own memorial, which will be held today in Texas - and Taylor’s not invited.

The former Hills beauty - rumored to be hitting the ballroom floor in this season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars - was recently spotted out and about at LA's West Hollywood Park, workin’ on her fitness with an early morning run and her chocolate USANA shake. Could she be getting ready to don those skimpy DWTS costumes, or is Kristin just prepping to get back into the dating game now that she's single again?

The official cast announcement for season 13 of Dancing with the Stars airs Monday, August 29th during The Bachelor Pad.

Kris Jenner Gets Her Talk On With Leah Remini officially off of the CBS daytime show, and Holly Robinson Peete’s contract still awaiting renewal, sources say that reality TV mom-slash-businesswoman extraordinaire Kris Jenner, who’s slated to fill in for Sharon Osbourne in the first two weeks of September - could be coming to the table of the daily gabfest permanently. But do we really think Kris is ready to spend that much time away from her girls -- or her business?!

Gretchen and Slade Do Mexico It looks like things are still muy caliente between Real Slade and Gretchen at Villa del Palmar Loreto IMG_2215B.jpgHousewives of Orange County’s Gretchen Rossi and longtime boyfriend Slade Smiley. The notorious couple was seen getting pretty cozy during a weekend getaway at the newly opened Villa del Palmar resort at the Islands of Loreto in Mexico.

Gretchen and Slade seem to be enjoying a lot of these romantic vacays. Think we’ll be getting an engagement announcement anytime soon?
