Season 6 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills lacked a certain level of intrigue and drama that fans are used to seeing from Bravo's hit franchise.
While filming for the new season is currently underway, early reports indicate newbie Eden Sassoon is already making waves. What do Kyle Richards and Lisa Rinna think of the newest member of RHOBH?
Reality Tea reports that Kyle and Rinna don't have a high opinion of Sassoon.
The two RHOBH stars were asked what they thought about Sassoon during a red carpet appearance. Kyle was reluctant to answer but admitted that she and Sassoon don't get along.
"Eden has come onto the show as a 'friend.' I don't know if I am allowed to say that, but I just did," Kyle revealed. "Oh well. Time will tell. I don't think I'm her favorite person, to be honest."Rinna was equally hesitant to dish anything on Sassoon, but she did hint that there is some kind of conflict this season.
"You know, you'll just have to watch the show," she stated. "This is all I'm gonna give you. I was a big fan of her dad's."Which could mean that Rinna is not a fan of Sassoon either?
While Rinna might have some reservations about Sassoon, she did say that she was still "getting to know her." Perhaps this means that Rinna might warm up down the road.
Unfortunately, Rinna refused to say whether or not Sassoon sparked a lot of drama in the coming season.
"I'm not sure," she coyly said. "Do we have drama on our show?"
Speaking of drama, Kyle should supply plenty of it in the coming season.
According to Daily Mail, Kyle is patching things up with her sister, Kim Richards, who famously battled alcohol addiction back in Season 5 of RHOBH.
In fact, the two sisters joined other family members in celebration of Kim's 52nd birthday this past week.
Kyle Richards even shared a photo from the festive evening with the caption: "Happy birthday @kimrichards11 we love you."
Kyle wore a leather jacket and black skinny jeans for the event and wasn't afraid to cozy up next to her sister for the pic.
Even the sisters' niece, Paris Hilton, got in on the birthday action by sharing her own wishes on Instagram.
"Happy Birthday to my beautiful aunt @KimRichards11! Hope all your birthday dreams & wishes come true! Love you so much! And can't wait to see you soon!' adding emojis of fireworks, a birthday cake and love hearts," Hilton wrote alongside the photo.
Kim is clearly doing better and is on the road to a full recovery, something she hinted at during the Season 5 reunion this past spring.
"I'm in recovery. I'm choosing to keep my recovery to myself," she explained to Andy Cohen. "I think at times it has been hard to love me. I put my whole family through a lot."
Meanwhile, Blasting News is reporting that Sassoon isn't the only new face next season.
Fans will also meet Dorit Kemsley. The fashion designer is good friends with Lisa Vanderpump, so there probably won't be a lot of drama where she is concerned.At the same time, Eileen Davidson and Erika Girardi are returning as full-time cast members in Season 7, while Camille Grammer is expected to make a cameo at some point.
Fans will not, however, see Kathryn Edwards or Yolanda Foster this year. Both RHOBH stars were not asked to return to the hit series.
With production in full swing, fans can expect the new season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to premiere on Bravo later this year.
