'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills': Meet the cast!

Real-Housewives-of-Beverly-HillsJust as you were beginning to breathe again after last night’s out-of-control Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, Bravo is ready to show you more of the weird, wild, trainwreck-y world of rich women. Today, the network announced they’d be adding to their successful franchise with a fresh slate of financially, genetically, sometimes surgically blessed woman in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (Bravo, Oct. 14, 9 p.m.).

It’s their first foray into the land of celebrity, so it’s no surprise that more than a few of the cast members have a Hollywood connection. Let’s have a closer look at what we’re dealing with here, shall we? Check out a preview of the season and more details on the cast below.

Taylor Armstrong, an Oklahoma native who now runs a consulting firm. She may dote on her 4-year-old daughter with lavish $50,000 birthday parties, but it looks like her marriage is on the rocks. As for appearances (how can we talk about Beverly Hills and not talk about appearances?), besides looking like the O.C.‘s now former cast member Lauri, Taylor seems to have remnants of the small town vibe, too. But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t know how to throw a few punches.

Camille Grammer, soon to be ex-wife of actor Kelsey. She vows to not speak of her divorce (good luck with that) and explains it’s all about being a mother for her. Snooze, but at least we get footage from her appearance on the red carpet with Kelsey at the Tony Awards. Her undying love for her kids has a trace of The O.C.’s Vicki, while her tabletop dancing screams New Jersey‘s Danielle. She seems most likely to release a pop single. God Andy Cohen, save us!

Lisa Vanderpump, a British designer and restaurant owner who lived in the South of France before moving to BHills five years ago. She wears a lot of pink, which doesn’t bode well for our stomachs. She also spends every night in bed with her dog, which doesn’t bode well for her husband of 29 years. And though the Brit may share a motherland with D.C.‘s Kat, Vanderpump’s tongue seems more sweet than sour.

Kyle Richards, a former child star-turned-mother of four. An aunt to Paris Hilton, Kyle admits to having a slight case of OCD and being addicted to the Real Housewives series. She’s friends with New York‘s Bethenny, which is probably the source of her no-nonsense attitude. But her seemingly natural ability to stir up trouble screams fellow New Yorker Ramona.

Kim Richards, a former child star-turned-mother of four. Sound familiar? She’s Kyle’s sister who retired from show business (after 17 Disney movies, among other work) and decided to do Housewives because niece Paris had “so much fun” on The Simple Life. Though there are family ties in this cast, these sisters are definitely not “thick as thieves.”

Adrienne Maloof, part-owner of the Sacramento Kings and the Palms Resort in Las Vegas. The Albuquerque-raised Adrienne is on a mission to show viewers just how down-to-earth the women of BHills are — when they’re not getting Botox injections, of course. Think of her as a mixture of New York‘s Bethenny and the O.C.‘s Vicki for her business drive, with a dash of New Jersey‘s Caroline for the Mother Hen vibe.

What do you think of the cast? Are you looking forward to a new city and new shenanigans?

    I hope it’s more Jersey than DC, because DC let me down.

    • Erin

      I TOTALLY agree!! DC is the “Snooze”!

  • Preston

    I think they want to show viewers that Beverly Hills isn’t all glitz and glamour with their own housewives. I think it will be a mix of Atlanta and New Jersey’s confrontational women with a bit of ’80s era Dynasty and nothing like New York or Orange County’s bland set of women.

  • Louise

    Good Lord! All of their faces look like they are made of wax.

    • Jay

      I was thinking the same thing! One of them looked like her face was in a vise and it made her lips poke out!

      • Noneya Biz

        I think vice-face had a bad plastic surgeon!!

      • Jason

        Taylor needs a good man to treat her well. I am right here waiting to give you all you need. Hope to hear from you. You ladies bring elegance, sexy and classy back to t.v. God Bless you all.

        Psst, think you meant “their” not “there.”

    • kvwings

      I totally agree, she almost looks deformed to me. Why are her lips like that. I cant see how pretty she is because all I see are her lips.

  • ?

    “how can we not talk about Beverly Hills and not talk about appearances?”

    wait, whuh? are there too many ‘nots’ in this sentence?

  • Nancy

    Let’s hope they don’t sit out too long in the Beverly Hills *smog* Sunshine…their faces might melt…ewww creepy looking.

  • Nancy Grownen

    More aging blonde boxed gold-diggers YIPEE!!

    • Xena

      No, Adrienne is not a gold digger. Has her own money.

      • BonitaFran

        I agree, she’s a Maloof.

  • Nancy Grownen


    I meant to type: More aging blonde botoxed gold-diggers YIPEE!!

  • tomm

    Kim Richards was on many TV shows also, from “Nanny & the Professor” to “Magnum PI”.

  • Gina

    Holy Botox! How can anyone think that is attractive? Plastic blow fishes galore. I’m 50 and look better than all of those bimbos and no needles have been even close to this face. I agree with Nancy…creepy!

  • Social Critic

    Yesterday three new cast members were added to SNL – all caucasians. Today we meet the new cast of “Real Housewives of LA” – all caucasians.
    Maybe someone should google the word “diversity”.

    • crykyt

      There is no diversity in Beverly Hills. Duh.

    • claude derriso

      Its a reality show dearie, I don’t see anyone complaining about Housewives of Altanta’s cast member ethnic minority. Oh, and for KIM’S TRUE COLOR(S)–Huney–she is a sista thru and thru!!!! Love ya NeNe and Candy but the rest of them give women of darker complexion a bad name!!!! Those two women are real—that phaedra is so fake and not very intelligent,” …8 lbs and 23 ounces”? what????? Pla-eeeese.

      • ceelele

        I so agree with you Mr. Derriso. But, I would like to hear a little about y o u r wifey poo. A man watching Housewives reality series? Either your wife “wears the pants” in your house or ….well, ya get where I am going with that!!!

  • angel

    I thought the same thing. Could you have more women other than black and white. I want RHW of Miami. I was to see the hispanics in action!

  • Richard

    please, please, please, stop making these shows.

  • Elizabeth

    Dear Baby Jesus make this all go away…

  • jennab

    Ugggh, just watched the trailer, so cringe-inducing! The trout pouts, eeek! Do they not have mirrors? Desperation seeps out of every pore. :(

  • jessica

    I heard Camille Grammer is dating Danny Lohner from Nine Inch Nails. Will he be on the show?
