The Season 9 The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premiere is so close, we can taste all the drama. And the crew has teased that this is a season of “lies,” and there will apparently also be some “heartbreak” and “betrayal.” With just days until the premiere, the team here at The Daily Dish gathered to break down everything that has happened since the season 8 reunion. (Check out all the juicy scoop, rumors and news in the video above!)
Since we left off, Kyle has been keeping busy with various projects and businesses and being a devoted mama who is nearly an empty nester, and it appears that things are finally in a better place between her and her sisters, including Kathy Hilton(!!), after some tension in the past over her series American Woman which ended in 2018. She also turned 50 — but let’s face it, looks as young as the day she first stepped on the scene.
Rinna has been out there trying some new looks, mourning the loss of her beloved pup, being immortalized on Jeopardy, and watching her model daughters thrive. Oh, and, most importantly, Harry Hamlin finally addressed what he thinks went down in Amsterdam and that unforgettable wine toss.
As always LVP (she’s hear to stay!) has balanced out all her businesses — including the opening of Tom Tom and a new hotspot in Las Vegas in the near future — with her social and charitable causes. However, it’s been a hard year for LVP in the wake of the loss of her brother and she’s said that is in a “different place” this season — which looks to include some drama with Dorit and longtime BFF Kyle.
Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave
As always, Teddi is busy in her life as an accountability couch, out there changing folks for the better. And she’s also set to get a new stepmom after her dad John Mellencamp popped the question to rom-com queen Meg Ryan last year.
Erika has been nonstop with her career — touring all around the country and gaining Erika Jayne fans in ‘Wives like Melissa Gorga and Kandi Burruss. She also stopped by the Young and the Restless to hang with alum Eileen Davidson — and was recruited for a TED Talk (yes, a TED Talk, go girl!). Let’s hope her touring schedule takes her to Europe next, since she has such a great sense of geography, as she displayed in the trailer.
Rookie and longtime Hollywood sexpot Denise joins the crew this season — and we can’t wait to see what vibe she brings to the group, or what leads to that blowup with Kim Richards as was teased in the trailer. In other news, she married Aaron Phypers last fall — and, like many celebs, was greatly affected by Malibu fires last December. Oh, let’s not forget, she’s also friends with Brandi Glanville… but more on that later.
Like Denise, longtime RHOBH friend Camille is also a newlywed. She married David Meyer in October, but still doesn’t speak to ex Kelsey Grammer. And sadly, she lost her home to the destructive December wildfires, but remains as resilient as ever.
Kyle’s big sister is back — and we have no idea what’s going on with her and Denise, but we can’t wait to find out. Since we last saw her (Bunnygate, anyone?), she’s gone public with her longtime boyfriend Wynn Katz, and her daughter Brooke Wiederhorn is expecting her second child.
There she is! Brandi has returned, thanks to Denise (they share a mutual agent! How Hollywood!), but maybe she’s a different woman from when we last saw her. She’s since settled her often-fiery beefs with Scheana Shay, as well as Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes — though LVP made it clear that she doesn’t think she can be friends with her again. Still, a perhaps-softened Brandi is even giving out advice to other wives — Kandi reached out to her about what it’s like to appear on Celebrity Big Brother after she was on last year. Has Brandi changed? Only time will tell.
