Plot Synopsis

THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS follows a group of the most affluent women in the country as they enjoy the lavish lifestyle of Beverly Hills. These women -- heiresses, entrepreneurs and child actresses -- are in the center of it all and they have the mansions, the cars, and the diamonds to prove it. The housewives are: Taylor Armstrong, who moved to Beverly Hills from Oklahoma in 2003, has a young daughter, Kennedy, and survived her ex-husband's suicide in August 2011; Adrienne Maloof, who is part of the Maloof family dynasty that runs an enterprise includes the Sacramento Kings, Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Sweeping Palms Entertainment, and Maloof Money Cup; Kim Richards, who is a former child Disney star who retired early to raise her family of four, but she is working on various business endeavors -- and she's Paris Hilton's aunt; Kyle Richards, Kim's sister, who is also a former child actress, has four daughters with her husband Mauricio Umansky, is an avid advocate for the fight against cancer, and has recently opened Kyle by Alene Too, a high-end boutique in Beverly Hills; Lisa VanderPump, who moved to the U.S. from London in 2005, where she and her husband owned 26 bars and restaurants, and has now opened two new restaurants (Villa Blanca; Sur) in Los Angeles while writing for Beverly Hills Lifestyle magazine and maintaining her line of skin-care products called "Epione"; Camille Grammer, a model, actress, dancer, and advocate, who was married to Kesley Grammer for 13 years with a daughter, Mason, and a son, Jude, and was a full-time cast member in the first two seasons, appearing in Season 3 as a "friend of the Housewives"; Brandi Glanville, a former high fashion runway and print model, who is a mother two young sons with ex-husband actor Eddie Cibrian and is an author, appearing in Season 2 as a "friend of the Housewives" while being elevated to full-time cast member in Season 3; and Yolanda H. Foster, the newest Housewife in Season 3, who was born and raised in Papendrecht, a small farmer's town in Holland, and moved to Los Angeles in 1994 with her former husband Mohamed Hadid but recently married music producer David Foster and is a mother to her three children and five stepdaughters -- all while running her own business, Hopelessly Romantic. RHoBH returned for its third season on Monday, November 5, 2012 at 9pm ET/PT on Bravo.

Bravo presented the Season 4 premiere of REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS on Monday, November 4, 2013 at 8pm ET/PT, with a two-hour crossover event with VANDERPUMP RULES. In the season opener, Kyle hires Lisa's posh restaurant, SUR, to cater a cocktail party for the Chamber of Commerce at her home, as she celebrates Beverly Hills' centennial. Plus, Brandi, Yolanda, Kim, Kyle and Lisa welcome two new housewives: Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud de Ohoven. Carlton is a straight-talking Brit who sounds like Lisa, at least to Beverly Hills residents, and has a mouth like Brandi. Carlton is married to business mogul David Gebbia, with whom she has three small children. Joyce is a former Miss Puerto Rico, an actress and model married to film Producer Michael Ohoven, and the founder of the "Queen of the Universe" pageant.

THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS returned for its fifth season on Tuesday, November 18, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on Bravo, as Yolanda Foster, Brandi Glanville, Kim Richards, Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump are joined for Season 5 by new housewives and soap stars, Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson. After a sudden and secret departure from Puerto Rico at the end of last season, Lisa Vanderpump is still wary of her formerly close friends, but is beginning to reconnect with Yolanda and Kyle. She has no interest in making amends with Brandi, who is also struggling to move past her own hurt. The ladies all come face-to-face at Kyle's annual White Party and the over-the-top event is bigger and better than ever now that Mauricio's real estate agency is selling houses upwards of $50 million. The social event of the season brings original Beverly Hills housewives Adrienne Maloof, Camille Grammer and Taylor Armstrong back together. As unresolved issues come to the surface, Brandi is faced with making amends with both Lisa and Adrienne at the same event.

Season 6 of THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS premiered on Tuesday, December 1, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT on Bravo, with Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Yolanda Foster, Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson joined by new housewives Erika Girardi and Kathryn Edwards. A friend of Yolanda's, Erika Girardi is a blonde bombshell married to one of the highest-powered, top-earning lawyers in the United States, who happens to be 32 years her senior. Erika leads a rich paradox of a double life, overseeing a breathtaking estate by day and performing as an over-the-top, hit-making, sexy star named Erika Jayne by night. New housewife Kathryn Edwards knew Lisa Rinna twenty years ago when they were both starting to make waves in the LA scene. Now married without children to retired football player, Donnie Edwards who is nine years her junior, the pair leads an enviably stress-free life of fun and excitement, splitting their time between Brentwood and San Diego. This season, Yolanda's struggle with Lyme disease continues as she goes to extremes in search of a cure, which leads the other women to question her actions. Longtime friends, Lisa Vanderpump and Lisa Rinna, are also in the crossfire as gossip and secrets erupt into a deeply personal conflict between the two. New to the group, Kathryn tries to befriend Erika, but they quickly become embroiled in their own drama and sparks fly when they start speaking the truth. Kyle is just trying to keep her head above water while expanding her store, maintaining friendships with the women and dealing with unexpected personal matters. Reeling from the recent death of her father-in-law, Eileen seeks a much needed apology after questions and details about her marriage arise from another housewife. Whether driving Ferraris in Italy, staying at a glorious house in the Hamptons or receiving VIP treatment at the world's tallest building in Dubai, nothing will keep the Beverly Hills housewives from shedding tears and hurling accusations while still keeping up impeccable appearances.

The seventh season of THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS premiered on Tuesday, December 6, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT on Bravo, as Erika Girardi, Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, and Eileen Davidson are joined by new housewife Dorit Kemsley and friend Eden Sassoon. Lisa Vanderpump's friend Dorit is the glamorous and charming wife of Paul 'PK' Kemsley, a wealthy English businessman turned high powered talent manager representing the likes of '80s icon Boy George and soccer superstar Pele. A mother of two young children, Dorit balances the demands of overseeing her husband's company while parenting alongside her many nannies. Eden Sassoon, a friend of Lisa Rinna and the daughter of late style icon Vidal Sassoon, is expanding her own salon and Pilates business in an effort to continue her father's legacy. Having overcome a battle with alcoholism, the free-spirited and outspoken Eden is committed to having fun and looking for love when she is not fulfilling her parenting duties as a single mother. This season, Lisa Vanderpump attempts to keep her head held high as she navigates challenging friendships with those whom she believes have treated her badly in the past. Erika Jayne's career continues to soar with a new music video and a headlining gig in Greece, while Erika Girardi takes an emotionally surprising trip to visit her mom in rural Georgia. Always on the move, Kyle steps into her new stilettos as a TV producer, expands her retail business to NYC, and is forced to fend off damaging words from a new acquaintance who tries to meddle in her very personal business. Eileen struggles with grief after the recent loss of her mother and questions her tumultuous relationship with Lisa Vanderpump. Meanwhile, Dorit finds herself embroiled in conflict with Erika when a simple question of social etiquette turns into an assault on one another's character. The newest housewife soon clashes with Lisa Rinna after an alleged joke spirals into a series of hurtful accusations that causes sparks to fly. And never one to silence her opinion, Lisa Rinna's famous lips get her into hot water when she questions a former housewife's behavior, ultimately reopening old wounds and causing a dramatic rift within the group. Whether boating along the coastline of Mexico or visiting one of the world's largest Buddhas in Hong Kong, nothing stops these housewives from speaking their minds, revealing their truths, and calling out each other's lies in the opulent world that is Beverly Hills.

Season 8 of THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS premiered on Tuesday, December 19, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT on Bravo, as Erika Girardi, Dorit Kemsley, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, and Lisa Vanderpump are joined by new housewife Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and friend Camille Grammer for a season of lavish adventures, uncontrollable laugher and confrontations aplenty. Running her successful fitness and nutrition accountability business, newcomer Teddi moves through life with a strict ethos that she rarely strays from, even if this leads to differing opinions with some of the ladies. Friendly face Camille returns with a new outlook on life and is finally able to entertain the idea of remarrying, but when she struggles to get her "sexy" back, she turns to her friend Lisa Rinna for advice. This season, the ladies are busier than ever, juggling life at home and in the boardroom. In addition to wrapping production on her series "American Woman" and expanding her retail business, Kyle is at a crossroad when she has to decide whether to renovate or move out of the home where she's raised her daughters. Dorit gives herself just a couple months to re-launch her swimwear line, which proves to be a nearly impossible task. Erika pours herself into Erika Jayne's meteoric rise, back in the recording studio and opening up in shocking ways as she writes her autobiography. Meanwhile, Lisa Rinna is a focused "momager" to her two model daughters, who are poised to be the next "it" girls, but struggles to keep them grounded as they continue to travel the world and grow up very fast. Lisa Vanderpump is knee-deep in rescue dogs, as her new business, Vanderpump Dogs, continues to thrive, but will she be able to do it all once she also takes on editor of a magazine? From casual lunches to luxurious escapades, there's no doubt that living this large has its ups and downs, but these housewives have their famed zip code - and then some - in the palms of their hands.

RHOBH's ninth season premiered on Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 9pm ET/PT on Bravo. Erika Girardi, Dorit Kemsley, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, and Lisa Vanderpump are joined by new housewife Denise Richards and friend Camille Grammer for a jaw-dropping season sprinkled with exhilarating highs and shocking lows. The epitome of a working mom -- perfectly blending her carefree California attitude with the glamour of a Hollywood actress -- newcomer Denise uses her very-direct demeanor to carve out a place amongst the opinionated group, which she finds is both a blessing and a curse. This season, the stakes are higher than ever for each of the ladies, and while there is no shortage of laughs, they are forced to navigate a string of confrontations that could change the dynamic of the friends group forever. Following her brother's recent passing, Lisa Vanderpump puts all her energy into her family, work demands and maintaining a positive attitude. Kyle is settling into her new house after a well-publicized robbery and sending her daughter Sophia off to college, all while trying to determine the future of her Beverly Hills clothing store. Feeling like she's found her mojo, Dorit is expanding her swimwear line to include a lifestyle brand, but working against tight deadlines makes her realize she may have bitten off more than she can chew. Meanwhile, Erika takes the ultimate leap of faith - and financial risk -- when she embarks on an Erika Jayne National Tour, hoping her fans will show up to support her. As her business flourishes into a multi-million dollar empire, the always-on-the-go Teddi must adjust to the newfound pressures of running her company while simultaneously maintaining her supermom status. Lisa Rinna begins to wonder if acting still excites her, while coping with an empty household, as her husband is constantly traveling and her model daughters are getting ready to leave the nest. Camille is prepping for her wedding day and though she is more than ready to leave the past behind, moving forward might not be as easy as she had hoped.
On Tuesday, July 30, 2019 at 9pm ET/PT, Bravo premiered the finale of RHOBH's three-part Season 9 reunion. The reunion concludes with the fallout over Camille's dramatic storm-off.
