The cast of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, including Denise Richards, traveled to the Bahamas last week to film for the upcoming season, and unlike last year, there is already some major drama. When Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Lisa Rinna, Kyle Richards, Erika Girardi, Teddi Mellencamp, and Dorit Kemsley were all at the Nassau airport, a video camera caught a woman named Jasmine Lennard confronting Kemsley over a lawsuit.
According to Reality Blurb, the video shows Kemsley and Rinna trying to get away from Lennard with the help of security guards. Lennard went after Kemsley over a lawsuit concerning her and her husband Paul (PK), and her swimwear line, Beverly Beach by Dorit.

Allegedly, Ryan Horne, a business partner of the Kemsley’s, invested $200,000 to start the swimwear line, but he never received any money back.
“You’re Dorit, yeah? Why don’t you pay back Ryan the money that you owe him you cheap b***h?” Lennard said. “Why don’t you do that? You have money to come to Nassau, no? Why don’t you pay back the hundreds of thousands of dollars that you owe? All that money that you owe! How much is it… $300,000 that you owe? Why don’t you give me the money back?”
Lennard tweeted that Horne is a close friend, and he invested everything he had into the swimsuit business. The court documents claim that the clothing line is now worth $300,000, but the Kemsley’s have refused to pay Horne any money. But a source close to the reality star says that Horne is a manufacturer who did not do what he promised and let everyone down.
The insider says that the lawsuit is “fabricated” and in the “realms of fantasy,” and he never invested in the business. The source added that Horne’s unacceptable behavior and actions have caused the business a lot of damage, and the Kemsley’s will defend the lawsuit vigorously in court.

During the Bahamas trip, Renna and Kemsley jumped off of a cliff along with Richards and Camille Grammer. And it looks like Renna and Kemsley have reconciled and gotten past their issues. Girardi and Mellencamp also seem to be on good terms once again after they partied at the Bond nightclub together.
And, RHOBH will apparently have at least one more viewer this season thanks to the addition of Richards. Her ex-husband Charlie Sheen told reporters last weekend that he will be watching, and he hopes she has fun and that it is “a smash.” Sheen and Denise Richards were married from 2002 to 2006, and they share two daughters — Sam, 14, and Lola, 13.
Season nine of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will air on Bravo later this year.
