The much anticipated fourth season of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" is scheduled to premiere on November 4th, which is about a month and a half away.
Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Brandi Glanville, Kim Richards and Yolanda Foster will all be returning and joined by two new cast members, Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia. Taylor Armstrong will also appear on the upcoming season, but has reportedly been demoted from a main cast member to "friend of the Housewives," so we will likely be seeing less of her this season. As expected and previously announced, Adrienne Maloof and Camille Grammar will not be returning.
The new girls
Joyce is expected to shake things up this season, as it seems her strong personality creates some tension amongst the RHOBH cast. “Joyce is definitely Team Kyle," says a source close to the cast. "But, she gets on the nerves of nearly everyone else. She’s very ‘me, me, me.’ She makes every situation about her. It’s insensitive and exhausting.”
Not much has been said about Carlton, other than it has not yet been confirmed whether she will be a main cast member or just a supporting role.
Other rumors and spoilers
At least one source claims that, at some point during filming, Lisa and Brandi confront Kyle about the rumors that her husband, Maricio Umansky, is cheating on her. Brandi, being the trouble-maker she is, apparently informs Kyle she has solid evidence to support such claims. Horrified by the rumors, Kyle threatens to quit the show. Producers were later able to calm her down.
Later on during filming, according to sources, the ladies take a trip to Palm Springs, but there was so much anger and tension between Kyle and Lisa/Brandi that they could not even stand to ride in the same car together, so two cars had to be driven to separate the three women. “Kyle and Kim Richards and newcomer Joyce Giraud were in one limo. Lisa Vanderpump, Brandi Glanville, Yolanda Foster and Carlton Gebbia were in the other," said an inside source close to the situation.
At the end of the season, the ladies take a trip to Peurto Rico, where Lisa and Yolanda apparently get into an argument over something. A witness uploaded a photo of the two ladies talking in a restaurant and uploaded it to Instagram and claimed, “They were arguing over something. (They are sophisticated, not loud) They were outside for a long time. Yolanda was outside most of the time and after Lisa went inside she was talking to Kim and Kyle. Joyce then went outside and called the group to go inside. Part of the group was celebrating in the restaurant. I was shocked when I saw Brandi, she is a twig.”
Lisa unfollowed Yolanda on Twitter soon after.
Rumor has it that Brandi and Lisa also have a possible falling out of some kind and are not nearly as close as they used to be.
However, it seems like at some point, Brandi and Kyle do work out their differences, because the two were spotted having lunch together, off-camera, after filming wrapped up.
What do you think, folks? Are you excited for the new season?
