Immediately following the conclusion of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ drama-filled eleventh season, Bravo is said to have jumped back into production to continue chronicling Erika Jayne’s continuing court struggle and divorce from Tom Girardi. Erika was interrogated by host Andy Cohen about Tom’s alleged crimes and whether she played a role in them in Part 1 of the unprecedented four-part reunion, which garnered a season-high viewership of more than 1.5 million viewers, effectively ensuring that Season 12 will be the last season of The Real Housewives of New York City (Erika has denied any involvement in the fraud and embezzlement claims brought against Tom).
In the meantime, Bravo has revealed various new information about the upcoming season, including the debut of a new Housewife and the introduction of a new “friend.” Here’s what you need to know.
RHOBH Season 12 Renewed At Bravo
Show Status as of Right Now Season 12 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been officially renewed.
RHOBH Season 12 Release Date
The Real Housewives of New Jersey will return for a 12 season on May 11, 2022, at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo, following the hugely successful eleventh season.
RHOBH Season 12 Expected Cast
Aside from Kathy Hilton, the rest of the Season 11 cast has been confirmed to return, including Garcelle Beauvais and Kyle Richards. Other returning cast members are Lisa Rinna, Dorit Kemsley, Sutton Stracke, Crystal Kung Minkoff, and newcomer Kathy Hilton.
The Bat Mitzvah of Kyle’s 13-year-old daughter Portia was apparently covered by paparazzi, as seen by Instagram photographs of Dorit, Sutton, Lisa, and Crystal all in attendance. According to Us Weekly, Erika was reportedly invited but “could not attend it due to scheduling conflicts.”
Even though Garcelle, who had previously stated that she was “on the fence” about returning for Season 12, was absent from the photos, she expressed her delight in Kyle’s video of Portia and Mauricio’s father-daughter dance, calling it “very precious and special.” Garcelle was among the women that attended Paris Hilton’s recent bridal shower and dressed in costume for Kyle’s Halloween Kills movie debut on Oct. 12 in Los Angeles.
Season 12 will welcome two new characters to the show, in addition to the existing ones. A close friend of Crystal’s, Diana Jenkins, will appear on the show as a Housewife, while Garcelle’s BFF Sheree Zampino will appear on the show as a “friend of.”
The actress Diana is described by Bravo as a Bosnian war refugee who married into “an astounding banking fortune.” According to the network, she is a “formidable opponent for anyone who dares to cross her.” Season 12 sees her dealing with the aftermath of a devastating miscarriage, and the show follows her as she attempts to conceive a second child.
Sheree, on the other hand, is the ex-wife of Will Smith and a close friend of Garcelle’s as well. “She’s not afraid to speak her mind,” according to Bravo, who also notes that she “soon forms strong ideas about her new friends.”
RHOBH Season 11 final recap: Ice Queen Of Dragons
This is it, everyone. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is coming to a close after a historically significant and jaw-dropping season. What an eventful season it has been! Whether you like or dislike Erika Jayne, she was responsible for one of the most memorable seasons in Housewives history. Legendary.
Erika and Crystal Kung Minkoff get together for a rare one-on-one meeting between the two of them. The majority of it is devoted to the preparations for Crystal’s Chinese New Year celebration. What a delightful way to bring the season to a close. You can tell Erika is exhaling a sigh of relief now that the season is coming to an end, don’t you?
The venue for the occasion appears to be just stunning. The majority of the women are participating in Chinese New Year for the first time. Hopefully, this will serve as a learning opportunity for them regarding Crystal and her culture. Later in the season, they performed this feat with Garcelle Beauvais, and it was a visually magnificent and informative event.
Erika admits to Crystal that she’s still enraged at Sutton Stracke despite their reconciliation. The fighting is making its way into the superstitions for the New Year’s Eve celebration. The ill-luck and struggle that Erika has had in the last year of her life do not have to continue into the next. However, I have a feeling that her problems are far from done. We haven’t even begun to see the full extent of it.
Kathy Hilton takes Sutton on a tour of a new house that she is currently building. The asking price for this mansion is ridiculous, and it’s larger than other cities, in my opinion. Kathy is even more wealthy than Sutton, who is already wealthy.
Sutton believes that she and Crystal have finally attained a new level of tranquility. It didn’t seem like it would ever happen, but they’ve finally reconciled their differences. Things with Erika, on the other hand, are still a little questionable. There’s no way things can be back to normal in the way Erika would like Sutton to believe they can be again.
Sutton is not entirely wrong in his skepticism about Erika’s motivations. After the way things have gone in the past, it’s understandable that Sutton is apprehensive about sitting down with Erika. Erika goes from 0 to 100 in such a short period of time that it’s rather frightening. There is no way to reason with her. If she gets the impression that you’ve done anything wrong, that’s the end of it. She will not be present when Sutton asks difficult questions. Well, that’s a shame since Sutton is carrying out the will of the Father.
It’s time for the Fox Force Four to get together for one of their sessions where no one else is permitted to attend. It is possible that Kyle Richards and Dorit Kemsley may eventually stop kissing one other in the snot and declare their actual feelings to Erika. If you can talk garbage behind her back, you should be able to say it in front of her face as well.
The fact that Erika is in a good place with herself right now means that she will not cave into Sutton’s demands. Kyle adds fuel to the fire by informing Erika that Sutton is still feeling the same way. Kyle earning her paycheck as the show’s secret producer is something we appreciate. She understands how to keep the story going forward.
Tom Girardi’s car accident narrative has remained odd throughout the years. Erika adds a further element to the narrative by stating that her son came over after hours to assist in the search for him. No amount of threats directed at Sutton will change the fact that the story is continuing to evolve in an odd way.
Erika is not disturbed by Kyle’s criticism of her racy Instagram posts, which she dismisses. She believes she is only playing a joke on the individuals who are out to get her. In truth, it gives the impression that she couldn’t give a damn about the allegations. It’s not a good appearance. She requires a new public relations staff that will not allow her to disgrace herself since she is coming across as tone-deaf.
Sutton expresses her delight at the fact that they have moved to a much better location. It was their disagreements with one another that dominated the first half of the season. For a little period, it appeared as though they would never be able to move past their feelings of anxiety. But in the world of Housewives, anything is possible.
OH MY GOD, IS KATHY’S PLUS ONE THE GUY THAT LISA RINNA WAS STRUCK WITH AT DORIT’S IN SEASON 7? Oh my goodness, that is a complete and utter disaster. The phrase “Were their people doing coke in your bathroom?” will be remembered for a long time.
After the bunny incident, Lisa’s Chinese zodiac sign, which is a rabbit, is also fucking hilarious to see. Rinna’s troubles are like a Christmas present that keeps on giving and giving. It was a good time.
With Elliot present, Dorit is taking extra precautions to ensure that she does not leave the table to go to the bathroom. One of the last things she wants is to be implicated in another drug-related incident. That should be avoided at all costs.
Garcelle and Lisa move to the side of the room to talk about their friendship. They both get the impression that things are heading in the correct direction at the moment. However, improvements have been made since the beginning of the season, so things are looking up. The road ahead is slow, but it’s a world of difference from where we were before.
Garcelle is hoping against hope that Lisa would reach out to Denise Richards, so she is pushing her luck. Lisa has nothing more to say to Denise because their friendship has come to a grinding halt.
Lisa believes that the proper moment must have presented itself for her to contact Denise. Things are tough between them, and she will complete the task at her own pace. Garcelle will not put any pressure on her to do anything she does not want to do, and she will respect that. This appears to be a means of preparing for Denise’s comeback next season. Is that something we actually want? She didn’t bring anything with her to the show.
Erika’s threats haven’t deterred Sutton from letting go. She, on the other hand, isn’t going to stop asking questions about what’s going on around her. There are some questions she wants to be answered, and she isn’t going to back down. Nobody wants to be in the company of someone who is accused of doing the things that are being reported. She isn’t crazy for trying to shield herself from the fallout of Erika’s actions.
Despite Garcelle’s belief that things had improved between Erika and Sutton, Erika’s manner suggests otherwise. When it comes to wishing for a drama-free celebration, Crystal is as innocent as they come. There’s always a quarrel when you’re among this group of women. It’s going to blow up in your face. It’s the grand finale of the series. If it didn’t, it wouldn’t be Housewives of Beverly Hills.
The middle of dinner is interrupted by Kyle calling Sutton out for sweeping things under the rug. This forces Sutton to inquire of Erika about the possibility of avoiding this and moving forward with no ill will. I wish you the best of luck with it!
Erika declares that she has nothing to say as the room falls DEAD silent. The good fortune that had been building between these two has been shattered. Erika’s demeanor toward Sutton is as icy as it has always been. I have my doubts about whether she has any true feelings rushing through her frozen veins at all.
Erika’s deafening quiet was unbearably uncomfortable on a grand scale. What makes it puzzling is that Erika appeared to be on the path to forgiveness when this happened. What happened to make things different? What’s the point of pretending to be someone you’re not?
When Erika doesn’t get her way, she expresses her resentment toward the other women in an unacceptable manner. Because of the way Erika spoke to Sutton at Kathy’s, it’s clear that Sutton is still a little shaken. Sutton should just leave it alone since she will never get the reaction she desires from Erika if she continues to pursue it.
Erika is relieved to learn that Sutton was not attempting to be overly judgmental. Erika will appreciate hearing that, but a one-on-one with Sutton isn’t in the cards right now. A talk with her is not likely to be fruitful in the foreseeable future. Any dialogue that took place in the near future would be a complete disaster.
Because there’s no getting away from this, the reunion is going to change everything for these ladies. They’re going to have to confront the truths that have been uttered about them. It’s no longer possible to dodge difficult conversations or situations.
Erika’s difficulties are far from over, but at the very least she showed up to film every single day. Like Denise and that British woman, she didn’t make a hasty exit from this place. Due to the fact that this is her JOB, she remained strong and faced all of the difficult questions.
