“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” returns with another season of over-the-top glamour and underhanded drama. Yolanda Foster, Brandi Glanville, Kim Richards, Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump are joined for season five by new housewives and soap stars, Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson. Lisa Rinna, a longtime friend of both Kyle and Lisa Vanderpump, brings her playfulness and outspokenness to the group. The entertainer, whose credits span “Days of Our Lives” and “Melrose Place,” introduces fellow newcomer, 2014 Emmy-winning “Days of Our Lives” compatriot 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.
