Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump used to be thick as thieves, but that is all about to change. We don’t yet know the exact day that Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will premiere on Bravo, but it will be sooner rather than later. And, Richards recently shared some inside info about the upcoming season, which she says it is going to be epic.
Richards says that things are outrageous from the get-go, and they have never had a season like this before. She says that it has been “wild and crazy” so far, and you just never know what is going to happen next.
She also revealed that she has a new best friend.

“Teddi [Mellencamp Arroyave] and I have become very close. I just adore her, and I’m so happy to have her to be a part of the show. We have a lot in common. We have fun together. It just feels really good to have,” said Richards.
Richards didn’t mention her co-star Vanderpump while talking to Us Weekly at the Halloween premiere. But after the restaurateur didn’t show up to Camille Grammer’s wedding last weekend, Lisa Rinna revealed on social media that LVP hasn’t filmed with the rest of the cast for almost six weeks.
According to Too Fab, when fans started asking why the RHOBH cast was ganging up on Vanderpump, Richards responded by saying that no one has ganged up on anyone else, and anyone reporting that is lying. She added that Vanderpump had received an invitation to every single event that the other ladies have attended, and if she chooses not to show up, that is her choice.
On the day Grammer tied the knot in Hawaii, with Richards as a bridesmaid, and Rinna, Mellencamp, and Dorit Kemsley as guests, Vanderpump posted a selfie at a Dodgers game in Los Angeles. In the comments, one fan wrote that the ladies were obviously ganging up on Vanderpump, and it is a huge mistake because the show will not survive without her.
Vanderpump replied, “Someone’s paying attention.”

But Rinna doesn’t see it that way, and she wrote on a Bravo fan account that she has no beef with Vanderpump, and she doesn’t understand why someone wouldn’t show up for work for six weeks. She added that the loss of family members shouldn’t be a reason to avoid filming.
Vanderpump’s brother died earlier this year due to a suspected drug overdose.
Rinna said that she lost her father and sister while filming, and she has great empathy for Lisa Vanderpump. But, when you sign up to do a job, you do it no matter what.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will return to Bravo in 2019.
