Bravo officially announces 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' lineup and premiere date

Bh_housewives
Lest you think there’d ever be a “Real Housewives” hiatus in your life, think again! Bravo is taking viewers into the zany, palm tree-lined world of rich women ( or “woman,” if you’re Danielle Staub) in Beverly Hills. Vivian Ward, your strut down Rodeo Drive will now be considered child’s play. The network officially announced Wednesday the bevy of ladies of the newest edition to the franchise (but if you're a ShowTracker reader, you're already familiar with the names).

Meet “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”:

Taylor Armstrong: The Oklahoma native who now runs a consulting firm is having marriage troubles. But nonmarital bliss isn’t keeping her from throwing  extravagant $50,000 birthday parties for her 4-year-old daughter.

Camille Grammer: Yep, she’s the soon to be ex-wife of actor Kelsey and she promises to not speak of her divorce. (Right!) Her hobbies, according to the news release, include “dancing, skiing, paddle boarding, tennis, hiking, and collecting rare first edition books, such as Pride and Prejudice, Works of Byron 1833, The Sound and the Fury, and the works of William Faulker and Roald Dahl.” (Oh, that Faulker, he's a rare treasure!) I guess having four nannies allows for a lot of reading time?

Lisa Vanderpump:  D.C.’s Kat isn’t the only one with a British accent anymore! Vanderpump is a British designer and restaurant owner who moved to Beverly Hills five years ago. More important, she wears a lot of pink (a lot) and is slightly obsessed with her dog Giggy.

Kim Richards: This former “Disney Girl” appeared in films like “Escape to Witch Mountain” and "No Deposit, No Return.” We hear crickets. She’s also a mother of four … and an aunt to Paris Hilton. Enough said. Wait. We spoke too soon. She’s also the older sister to fellow housewife Kyle Richards.

Kyle Richards: She's also an aunt to Paris and Nicky Hilton — she must be if she believes “If you obey all the rules, you'll miss all the fun." And she’s also an “actress,” with credits that include “The Watcher in the Woods” and “Down to Earth.” Again with the crickets.

Adrienne Maloof: A resident of Beverly Hills for 15 years, she’s one of those Maloofs — the dynasty with an enterprise that includes the Sacramento Kings and the Palms Resort in Las Vegas. And it looks like the Albuquerque-raised housewife  doesn’t have to go far to keep up her appearance; she’s married to prominent Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Paul Nassif. Oh, and she has three sons ages 7 and younger.

Check out a preview of the season, which is slated to premiere Oct. 14 at 9 p.m.:

ShowTrackers, are you excited for this latest installment in the “Houswives” franchise? What do you think of the new crop of women? The ladies of Atlanta had peaches. New York had apples. Orange County had, uh, oranges. What should the ladies of Beverly Hills be holding in the opener?

Krista, dear, it's smelling salts - not sauce. Do you think someone holds a pan of sauce under your nose to smell? This show is perfect for you.

well now we all know that Kathy Hilton is the calmest of the three.

The should be holding silicone inplants

It's funny how many people don't mind posting a comment that they can't stand the housewives, if so, why are you even wasting your time and ours telling us it's trash? Or wasting your time looking for a spot to rant and rave so that maybe someone may actually care what you have to say? I don't have money or much drama in my life, but I LOVE all the housewives, and their drama from CA to NJ and all in between...if you don't enjoy it, keep your remarks to yourself, and let those of us who LOVE to see how others live enjoy it!

Please...it's smelling salts...not smelling sauce...good grief

Why doesn't one person come up with a reality housewife show about REAL housewives? Woman who have a real JOB and a real FAMILY and real true FRIENDS with a realistic source of INCOME. So many of my friends are powerful woman with strong marriages and family along with great careers. So many could relate to a show that is more realistic .....Bravo T.V. please make that kind of show...... I will watch!

why did camille and kelsey have kids if she truly has four nannies and from what i remember she couldnt or chose not to even birth these children-- if you truly want kids shouldnt u be raising them yourself with minimal help so u can spend as much time as possible

LOVED KIM RICHARDS SO DOWN TO EARTH SO SWEET SO KIND AND UNLIEK THE OTHER PLASTICS AND WANNABEES MOST TALENTED SAD SHE IS THE POOREST BUT THAT SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT HOLLYWOOD
HER SISTER IS A BIOTCH TO HER
SHE NEVER GOT FAME OF HER SISTER AND JUST AMRRIED INTO IT
SHE WAS JSUT AN EXTRA ON ER
KIM WAS A STAR

Matt, why don't you go live YOUR life to the fullest and stop spending time worrying about what everyone else is watching on TV. Yes, the show is completely ridiculous, but we love watching other people's crazy drama so we can feel like maybe our everyday drama isn't so bad. Why don't you go and find something better to do

I know this is alot to ask from a person that you dont even know but if there is any way possible that you could just meet me for a min i am just a black single woman that has two children that wish i had a life like you a woman that is in charge. if you cant meet me could you please email me back thanks. i watch your show all the time and i though that was really nice of you to take your friend to Vegas for a trip it was real nice. This is the first for me and it would be great for me to just be able to get a picture with you.

me thinks taylor needs 2 lay off tha injections,kindof nasty looking,lov lisa,kyle is ok,like her more than camille,i think she has a lying problem,kim seems 2 have a personality problem & adrienne has tha bucks but seems 2 b tha most down 2 earth,money doesnt make her!!!other than that tha show is getting exciting,keep tha excitment up bravo.

I think Camille is the dumbest b on the show, honey you are not all that, Kyle is a better, sexer mom then you could ever be.. I think your getting what you deserve and I'. sure your ex husband is happier then he's ever been in the 16 years with you... YOUR FAKE

Kyle you rock, don't let some wana be fake b get you down

how can I find out where to get lisa's pink dress with the rhinstones on the front? I LOVE HER DRESSES !!!!!!!!!

help.. what type of dog is giggy ??

THANKS

i really think camile is off her rocket thats why her husdand leaving her she is crazy.

and camile you did't win the argyment and why would you invite people you don't like to your house a when is going to come out your sleeping with one of your friends husband

camile keeps saying kyle is jealous of of her, I think camile is the one that is jealous of kyle. I think camile planned the hole dinner disaster, she realy need some serious help.

OMG I HAVE BEEN WATCHING THIS SHOW AND CAMILLE THINKS THAT EVERYONE IS JEALOUS OF HER, PLEEEASE! CAMILLE DONT TRY TO PRETEND YOU ARE THE ONE WHO HAS THE MONEY WHEN IF IT WASNT FOR YOUR HUSBAND YOU WOULD HAVE NOTHING.YOU CANT EVEN HELP TAKE CARE OF YOUR CHILDREN WITH 4 NANNYS. YOU ARE LUCKY TO BE IN THE SAME CATACORY WITH THE OTHER HOUSEWIVES.

I love the Beverly Hills Housewives-with that being said there are some problems and they all start with Camille, she is evil, I have never seen such a person who is so self absored. At first I felt sorry for Camille-with the whole Kelsey thing, but after watching Camille on the show I can see how maybe Kelsey does not want to be with her. The rest of the cast are great, and I truly love these housewives.
