The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will look a whole lot different when Season 10 premieres. After Lisa Vanderpump announced she was leaving the show this past summer, Bravo added two new cast members and brought back some OGs to bring some serious drama now that the restaurateur is no longer part of the popular Bravo reality series. Let’s take a look at what we know so far.
The biggest change to RHOBH in Season 10 is the addition of new full-time cast members Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke. Beauvais, who is a Jamie Foxx Show alum, will make history as the first African-American RHOBH cast member. And Stracke is a single mom of three who describes herself as a “Southern Belle in Southern California.”

Meet your new housewives!! #RHOBH @suttonstracke : “I am thrilled and honored to be joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. As a mother to three children who is also deeply committed to my efforts in philanthropy, my life is a balancing act. There is a lot going on in the best way possible and I strive to pursue all of my passions to the fullest,” Sutton told The Daily Dish in a statement. “I am excited to share my true loves of art and fashion design, and open the doors to my world. I am looking forward to this ride and where this journey takes me. Fun times ahead for this Southern Belle in Southern California!” – @garcelle: “I am excited and proud to be joining the cast of such a wildly popular and beloved show like The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. As a working actor who has been in the industry for some time, it’s exhilarating to have the opportunity to delve into a new chapter in the entertainment spectrum. As the first African American Housewife in the Beverly Hills franchise, I am honored and humbled by this awesome opportunity to exemplify the fact that Black Girl Magic lives and thrives in every zip code!” Garcelle said in a statement to The Daily Dish. “Already being intimately familiar with the spotlight of Hollywood, my journey of successes and trials has already been chronicled and shared with my many loyal supporters around the world. The continual encouragement, support and yes, even at times, criticism, have helped make me the dynamic woman I am today. I’m excited to share the many ongoing daily surprises, laughs and joys of being a working mother in today’s crazy world. The hustle is R-E-A-L! No games, all heart and a little dash of fashion-filled sass is what you’ll get when you step into my sphere…and I wouldn’t have it any other way!”
Camille Grammer is also back as a friend of the show, even though she said after the Season 9 reunion that she was done with RHOBH. Just three months after telling fans that she wasn’t asked back, Grammer tweeted that she was getting back in the game for more “diamonds and drama.”
In November, Grammer told Us Weekly that she felt like a target when she showed up to film for Season 10.
“What I’ve seen, there’s drama targeted at me. I show up and they kind of, you know, how do I say it the right way? I feel that I show up somewhere and I felt targeted,” said Grammer. “But there are things that need to be discussed, so maybe that was the right time to do so. There you go, there’s a carrot. I just dangled!”
Teddi Mellencamp is expecting baby number three with her husband Edwin Arroyave, which makes her the first full-time cast member of RHOBH to be pregnant during filming. And, fans will get the opportunity to see Erika Jayne prepare for her Broadway debut in the musical Chicago.
Kyle Richards has a new clothing line that she designed with Shahida Clayton, and Mellencamp, Jayne, Denise Richards, Lisa Rinna, and Dorit Kemsley walked the runway at Kyle’s first show during New York Fashion Week. Kemsley says that Season 10 will feature all the “usual glitz, glam, and drama,” which will be “as high as you can possibly go.”
There will also be some appearances from OGs Eileen Davidson, Kim Richards, Adrienne Maloof, and Brandi Glanville. And, it looks like something serious went down between Glanville and Denise Richards. The Drinking and Tweeting author recently told her fans that she exposed some skeletons, and then she called out Denise Richards, saying she “just got Denised.”

“Seriously b*tch???? You wanna play?” wrote Glanville.“1-blackmail is illegal. 2-I have no skeletons in my closet (they’re all on the internet). 3-slut shaming is soooooo last year.”
Denise Richards seems to be having issues with Rinna, too. Rinna posted on Instagram earlier this month that Denise missed Kemsley’s party, and the ladies never heard from her after she promised she would attend. An insider claims that Rinna and Denise Richards are “headed for a showdown” during Season 10.
“Behind the scenes, Lisa Rinna is continuing to be the instigator and continuously stir the pot for maximum drama. Rinna does this to make herself relevant and maintaining job security,” claimed the source. “Denise has had enough of Rinna’s constant meddling and passive aggressive behavior, especially with social media. Denise and Rinna are headed toward a showdown on camera which is what Rinna has wanted.”
Bravo has not yet announced the premiere date for Season 10 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but it is expected to be in early 2020.
