Lisa Rinna ‘Housewives’: Actress Joins ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Cast

Lisa Rinna is on Housewives officially. The actress is joining the cast of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, and as a friend of fellow cast members Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump, Lisa will undoubtedly fit right in. According to Us Weekly, the 51-year-old has already filmed scenes for the upcoming season — and things are already moving forward accordingly.

According to the report:

“The actress recently filmed her birthday party on July 11 for the show at Lisa Vanderpump’s newest restaurant Pump in West Hollywood, Calif.”

Lisa Rinna and the Housewives she doesn’t know will have a great time getting to figure each other out — while the Bravo television cameras are rolling, no less. Rinna is a bit of a firecracker, and she will be put to the test when she’s confronted by other women (namely Brandi Glanville). However, there is also a chance that all of the women will get along swell… that’s just a chance, though.

Since Lisa is already famous — and a celebrity — having her as a part of a cast of women who are famous because they are reality stars will be different for the franchise, but many expect Lisa will do alright for herself. As far as the other women go, the cast will include Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle and Kim Richards, Yolanda Foster, and Brandi Glanville for sure.

Kyle Richards recently confirmed that she’s back for Season 5:

“Yes, it’s coming back and I’m coming back. I feel good. I’m looking forward to a new season. I think it’s going to be a really good season and I’m excited. I’m curious, like the viewer, to see things unfold and see what the relationships are like.”

Lisa Rinna is new on Housewives but could be joined by some not-so-new faces. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, former Housewives Camille Grammer and Adrienne Maloof will be back for Season 5. While the women have not been confirmed as full-time cast members, it is expected that both ladies will return part-time at the very least.

TMZ previously confirmed:

“They’ll be on here and there. They’ve already shot scenes — most recently at Kyle Richards’ infamous white party.”

Do you think the new season of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills will be better than the last season? Do you think that the addition of Lisa Rinna and the return of Camille and Adrienne will help the show or hurt it?
