Bravo has become the target audience for a mischievous drama with its “Real Housewives” franchise. There is no shortage of drama, but each season of this popular show manages to outdo the last.
“The 11th season of the RHOBH, for example, garnered the most excitement and drama of any spinoff to date. Understandably, fans were curious to see how the divorce dispute between Erika Jayne and attorney Tom Girard would play out, as several lawsuits have been filed against Tom.
Throughout season 11, Erika Jayne came under scrutiny for her lack of transparency regarding her involvement in her ex-husband’s crimes and was punished for it on the show. The pop star claimed that she was told by her lawyer not to reveal any information on the show, but she did – which gave fans a lot to talk about (via Us Weekly).
Given that season 11 of RHOBH is currently still airing, Bravo has not yet announced a release date for season 12. However, judging from previous seasons, it is likely that the show will return to TV around April or May 2022. While the release date may seem a long way off, fans should be happy to know that the housewives are hard at work filming. The actors have been spotted filming in public on several occasions. Dorit Kemsley even let it slip that camera crews were filming Kyle Richards’ daughter Portia Umansky’s birthday party (via Reddit).
With filming currently underway, Bravo will no doubt have plenty of content to show when the show returns in mid-2022, but who will be featured on the show is a question everyone is asking. Several of the show’s cast members have clashed with each other over the course of the season. Who will survive the reunion and return next season?
Which Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Ladies Are Back For Season 12?
None of the Housewives have confirmed their return for the 12th season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but it’s safe to say the show won’t be without its stars. If anything, Lisa Rinna is expected to return. The same can’t be said for Erika Jayne, who has become the least likeable housekeeper due to her legal battle with ex-husband Tom Girard. Pressure has been put on the show’s executive producer Andy Cohen to sack Erika Jayne, but he has told Entertainment Tonight that he is not bothered by the critics’ influence. He said he hoped the same cast would return for season 12.
While viewers don’t like Erika Jayne, she’ll have a big payday when she returns next season because her legal drama has been generating monstrous ratings for Bravo (via ScreenRant). So it’s no wonder Cohen wants her back.
In addition to Erika Jayne being a question mark next season, Garcelle Beauvais’ future on the show is uncertain. She told Entertainment Tonight that she’s “conflicted” about returning amid all the drama.
Finally, in an interview with Pedestrian, OG Kyle Richards shared that he’s not really sure if he’ll return, claiming that he’ll eventually have to “walk away” from the series. However, given that the cameras saw him filming his daughter’s birthday party, it looks like he’ll still be a participant. Crystal Chung Minkoff, Sutton Stracke and recurring housewife Kathy Hilton are also expected to return.
