Some interesting Real Housewives news has been leaked from the Beverly Hills Season 7 set: It looks like we’re not only going to see more cat-fights and rivalries, but we’re also going to have some new cast members!
E! News has the exclusive scoop about the seventh season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and they went straight to the sources — namely, Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump! The two fan favorites of the Beverly Hills cast were all too happy to share some exclusive Real Housewives news while they were dining at Lisa’s exclusive eatery, Pump (she was hosting the Daily Mail’s Summer White Party).
The ladies told E! News that there would be an “interesting shift” in the tenor and tone of the show thanks to a new cast member, though they didn’t go into detail as to who that new cast member would be. Kyle Richards, also known as the aunt of infamous Hilton sisters Paris Hilton and Nicky Hilton Rothschild, hinted that while this new cast member gives the Beverly Hills franchise a much-needed shot in the arm, it’s still too soon to tell if this addition is a good one, or a bad one.
“In the beginning, it’s always great, and then later, you’re like, ‘Oh my god, this is a nightmare!'” Kyle said.
❤️I would have loved a more graceful exit then “Season 6” but sometimes we don’t get to control… https://t.co/T5Hl6VPJ5p

Back in June, RHOBH fan favorite Yolanda Foster confirmed that she wouldn’t be returning for a seventh season. In other Real Housewives news, however, the Christian Times is reporting that there’s another cast member who won’t be returning to the show: Kathryn Edwards, the wife of retired NFL star Donnie Edwards. Us Weekly has confirmed that Edwards, a friend of Real Housewives star Lisa Rinna, didn’t have much of a storyline on the show to begin with, and therefore, letting her go wasn’t a difficult decision. To her credit, though, Edwards handled her departure from the show with grace.
And while there hasn’t been an official air date for Season 7 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, there are still plenty of rumors about who else will be returning — and who won’t. Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards are the only two cast members who have stayed on for all seven of the show’s seasons, but many of the former cast members have been relegated to “cameo” and guest-starring appearances, which have always been ratings gold. For example, Kim Richards, a former cast member and Kyle’s sister, is a fan favorite, and Kyle has said that she’d like to see her come back for good. However, as she said in her E! News interview, “nothing is set in stone yet.”
Meanwhile, former Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer has also hinted that she will return in Season 7.
“We’ll see, we’ll see. You gotta talk to Andy [Cohen] about that. We gotta talk to the higher-ups,” she told the Christian Times.
Finally, as we all know, Lisa Vanderpump was not expected to return for Season 7, but at the last minute, she agreed to come back.
“After many discussions, the Pump is still in the game,” she told her Twitter followers.
Yep,never thought I would return,but after many discussions.The pump is still in the game????????
Thank you to all of you.#rhobh
