“Get ready to return to your favorite zip code. The 90210 ladies are back and ready to bling it on!” Bravo says in their first promotional banners for season six of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” We’re heading for the hills in a little less than one month!
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premieres December 1st at 9/8c on Bravo. Go to our Bravo shows schedule page to see more premiere dates and show schedules.
Glitz and glamour are all around as the ladies get ready for a sixth go at it. Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Yolanda Foster, Lisa Rinna, and Eileen Davidson are all returning. Of course, leaving this season are Kim Richards (who struggled with addiction and legal issues) and Brandi Glanville (who managed to alienate herself from everyone but Yolanda last season).
Out with the old and in with the new! New cast members include Erika Jayne and Kathryn Eickstaedt Edwards. So who exactly are the new ladies joining the elite Beverly Hills group?
Erika Jayne is a pop/dance artist originating from Atlanta. The sultry songstress is responsible for eight #1 hits on the Billboard Club Songs chart. Married to one of the top lawyers in the Los Angeles area, Thomas Girardi (who is 76, by the way…), Erika is being brought in as a friend of Yolanda. Her younger style and energy is sure to add a brighter feel to the show, contrasting greatly with last season’s deep and dark drama.
Kathryn Edwards is the wife of former NFL player Donnie Edwards, whom she married in 2001. She was reportedly tied up in some of the OJ Simpson drama back in the day, just like (the morally corrupt) Faye Resnick. Rumor has it that the two do NOT get along at all. It’s likely that we’ll get to see some of this play out on screen this season. No word on how she’s being brought in just yet, though she’s been spotted getting along with Erika, Kyle, and Yolanda.
Who else will we be seeing this season? In terms of friends and guests, it’s looking to be jam packed! Bethenny Frankel, Luann DeLesseps, and Dorinda Medley were all spotted at a white party in the Hamptons early this summer. Taylor Armstrong has been saying that she’s just kind of “naturally around” this season. Kyle was a bridesmaid at Faye’s wedding this year, and sources say that there were cameras there filming.
Joyce Giraud was seen at Vanderpump’s “End Yulin Forever” protest. And lastly, Brandi filmed a few scenes with Yolanda and Kim was reportedly at the finale party where she made peace with Lisa Rinna. With all of these appearances and a cast trip to the exotic land of Dubai, this is shaping up to be a season that will not disappoint!
Do you think this is going to be the best season yet?! Let us know what you think in the comments!
