“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” is back for season four and the leading ladies of the most famous ZIP code in the world embark on a journey with more ups and downs than a Hollywood script. From fun over-the-top parties and wild nights, to heart-wrenching trauma of personal loss, to epic catfights and conflict, the women usher in the 100th anniversary of the city of Beverly Hills with full vigor. From the palm-tree-lined streets of Beverly Hills, to a fateful group trip to Joyce’s homeland of Puerto Rico, the women prove, yet again, that luxury and serenity don’t’ always a match up. This season, the women welcome two new housewives, Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud de Ohoven, both prominent in town. 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. Joyce is also the founder of the “Queen of the Universe” pageant, but she hardly gives “pageant answers” when challenged by the ladies, sparking and responding to several controversies right off the bat.
This season, Kyle Richards and her family seem to have the perfect life, but a tabloid scandal has the family staunchly denying any issues and leaves them questioning their real friends in a town known for opportunistic relationships and malicious gossip. Yolanda Foster overcomes Lyme disease, becomes a U.S. citizen and proudly watches her husband David get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Brandi Glanville is fresh off a bestselling book tour and moving into a shiny new home, but issues with her father put a damper on her newfound success and leave her struggling and celebrating in equal measure. Lisa Vanderpump begins the season basking in her appearance as a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars” and the imminent opening of her newest hotspot, “Pump.” However, her cherished relationships with close friends head down the path to being irretrievably altered. Kim Richards is one year removed from regaining her sobriety and is in a perpetual state of transition. The departure of her youngest daughter leaves a void which Kim fills with her beloved “replacement child,” a pit bull named Kingsley.
