LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The glitzy drama of reality show “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” will be returning in September will all six original ladies, plus some special guests, cable TV channel Bravo said on Wednesday.
The show, which won a 2011 Critics Choice Award for best reality series, features former child stars and wealthy businesswomen embroiled in designer duds, conflict, and outright hostility.
“In Beverly Hills, luxury has its price,” Bravo said, with the drama ruffling some seriously expensive feathers.
Camille Grammer will be focused on starting her new life after her divorce from “Frasier” star Kelsey Grammer, Bravo said.
She and the other five “housewives” will be joined for season two by new “friends:” businesswoman Dana Wilkey and former model Brandi Glanville. Glanville went through a messy divorce from Eddie Cibrian, the “CSI:Miami” actor who left her for country music singer LeAnn Rimes in 2009.
“If you put five girls or six girls in a room together, there’s gonna be drama no matter what,” Glanville said in a trailer released on Wednesday. “There’s so much drama this season, and I’m kind-of in the middle of all of it.”
Other ladies sharing the 90210 lifestyle include former Disney child stars and sisters Kim and Kyle Richards — both aunts to celebrity socialite Paris Hilton — Adrienne Maloof, whose family owns the Palms Casino resort in Las Vegas, and British restaurant owner Lisa Vanderpump, and Oklahoma transplant Taylor Armstrong.
The show, one of the most popular in the “Real Housewives” franchise, returns on September 5 on Bravo
