The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills spoilers for Episode 5 of Season 6 tease that the new girl in town will “intrigue” the other women. Erika Jayne meets everyone else on the episode airing Tuesday, December 29. What will they make of her colorful, animated personality?
The sneak peek synopsis reads: “The women are intrigued with Yolanda’s friend Erika, whose short skirt and flashy Cartier ring leave a memorable impression. Lisa Vanderpump pays an emergency visit to her veterinarian’s office. Eileen inadvertently references Lisa Rinna’s comment about Yolanda’s illness in front of the other women — including Yolanda. Later, on the eve of getting her breast implants removed, Yolanda makes a startling announcement to her children.”
In a preview clip released by Bravo, Lisa Vanderpump says in her confessional interview that Erika reminds her of a Barbie she used to play with when she was a little girl. When Erika tells her fellow cast mates on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills that her husband is 76, Lisa V. asks her how he is in the sack.

In another scene, Lisa V. and her husband, Ken, have an animal emergency and must take one of their pet swans to the vet. He has a stomach infection, and Lisa reveals that he might not make it.
In the last episode of RHOBH, Lisa Rinna shared with Lisa V., Kyle Richards, and Eileen Davidson that she doesn’t know what to believe about Yolanda Foster’s illness. She addressed rumors that she’s encountered from people on the street who question the validity of Yolanda’s Lyme disease because of her social media posts. Rinna explained that she’s confused by the messages Foster puts out there with one photo showing her getting medical treatments and another showing her happy and enjoying nature. It spawned enough doubts in her mind to the degree that she suggested Yolanda might have Munchausen’s disease — meaning someone is basically a hypochondriac. The definition is more complicated in that people will seek exotic treatments around the world for a fictitious illness. Yolanda is seen traveling around the world subjecting herself to extreme treatments and — by appearances — seems it could fit in line with Rinna’s suspicions if one didn’t believe Yolanda.

In a blog post by Foster after the latest Real Housewives of Beverly Hills episode, she expressed her views on the conversation that took place between the women.
She wrote: “I don’t blame Rinna, Kyle or LVDP – I understand it and feel sorry to see my battle be such a point of weakness for them. If I let fear of what others say about me creep into my mind, I probably would not be where I am today. 100 books later, and immersed in worldwide research that I never thought I could process has given me a masters in being fearless and the strength to battle this epidemic called Lyme disease – it’s the power of believing in myself that’s let me come this far.”
In other Real Housewives spoilers for Episode 5, Yolanda’s family comes together. In a scene from the sneak peek video, Gigi and Bella Hadid were seen with Yolanda’s mother as an emotional moment presents itself. Foster tells her daughters and mother what she wants if she doesn’t make it out of the next procedure being performed. Obviously, Yolanda survives it just fine, because she’s alive now and these episodes were taped months ago.
How will Yolanda react when Eileen tells her what Lisa Rinna said about her having Munchausen’s, and will Erika Jayne fit in with with this group of women?
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 6 airs Tuesday nights on Bravo at 9 p.m. ET.
