Lucky number 13! After multiple stars from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills announced their exits from the show, reality TV fans are wondering who will be on the forthcoming season of the long-running Bravo series. Some longtime diamond-holding castmembers are reclaiming their spot while others will live their glitz and glam lifestyle offcamera.

‘RHOBH’ Season 13 Cast

Season 13 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will see cast members Kyle Richards, Erika Jayne, Garcelle Beauvais, Dorit Kemsely, Crystal Kung Minkoff and Sutton Stracke return, and filming began at the end of January 2023. 

Kathy Hilton – whose ongoing tension with sister Kyle came to a head during the crew’s season 12 trip to Aspen, Colorado – will not return as a friend or full-time cast member. “No, I’m doing Paris in Love,” Kathy told E! News in an interview that aired on June 5, 2023, revealing she decided to dedicate her time to season 2 of daughter Paris Hilton‘s Peacock reality series. Kathy said she’ll still be a dedicated RHOBH fan, adding, “I know it’s going to be great. It’s always interesting and fun “and lots of drama.”

While appearing on a panel at BravoCon in October 2022, the Kathy Hilton Collection fashion designer did not mince words while talking about season 13 of the long-running reality show, telling moderator Brad Goreski she would “absolutely not” return to the show with the “same exact cast,” per Us Weekly.

“I’m just a friend, so it doesn’t matter,” she admitted, later adding, “I don’t ever like to say what other people should be. I just think that you need to mix things up a little bit.”

Fans will also meet new housewife, Annemarie Wiley.

Kyle teased what fans can expect from the season 13 cast in March 2023. “There are going to be some faces missing this season, obviously,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “It’s always interesting to see how the dynamics shift, as other people come and go, and it makes for an interesting show. And it’s interesting to watch now how people who didn’t get along, do, or the ones that did, now don’t. Just changes everything.”

The Bravolebrity went on to tell the outlet that her fellow castmates are “like sisters” to her, adding, “We have moments throughout, but we spend a lot of time together, and we all support each other in our businesses, all our ventures, and they really are a sisterhood. I would say all the housewives, but obviously my Beverly Hills girls – they mean a lot to me.”

That same month, RHOBH alums Denise Richards and Camille Grammer seemingly filmed a scene with the cast during a dinner held at Kyle’s house – which Sutton later revealed had “a lot of weed,” which is legal for adult consumption in California. 

“It was a weed dinner,” Sutton told Page Six. “So, not all of us partook and some of us did other things that were weed-involved. It was a fun, interesting ride [of a] dinner.”

Denise confirmed her return to the reality show in April 2023. “I have filmed some episodes,” she told Variety. “And it’s been fun. And you know, I’m a big fan of the show, so it was fun to go back and film a lot of stuff with them.”

She also revealed that her upcoming appearances weren’t planned, but began when she attended a screening hosted by Garcelle. “This all just happened recently on the spur of the moment,” Denise shared. “I was at her screening as a friend — like a real friend — I didn’t tell anyone I was gonna be there. Production didn’t know. I just showed up, like, for real life, as a real friend in real life.”

“The next day, I was asked to go to some events — and so it’s been actually fun,” the Starship Troopers actress added.

While Denise promised she will appear in new episodes, she is not returning as a full-time Housewife.

What Happened in the ‘RHOBH’ Season 13 Trailer?

Will the upcoming season be the return of RHOBH magic? Possibly so! The trailer featured back-to-back jaw-dropping moments from a sinful Las Vegas trip to marital woes between multiple couples.

The season 13 trailer began with the cast reacting to Kyle and husband Mauricio Umansky’s split, while trying to figure out what really went wrong in their marriage. Viewers will see everything play out onscreen as the fan favorite Housewives couple was seen in heated moments and also sat their daughters down for an emotional conversation. Not to mention, Kyle’s BFF Morgan Wade, will make her RHOBH cameo and debut. The women have sparked ongoing dating rumors since Kyle’s marital woes have come to light.

Erika navigates her music career after landing a Las Vegas residency, but tries to learn how to become likeable to fans after her nasty legal woes. She also goes head-to-head with Denise, who deems her “one evil woman.” While Garcelle faces parenting challenges with her youngest son, Jaiden, Crystal finds herself misunderstood in the group.

In one scene, Crystal is engaged in a feud with newbie Annemarie before she tells the group at a party, “This group wants me to scream all the f–king time!”

Dorit and husband P.K. seem to not be on the same page after their May 2022 home evasion. In a clip, Dorit claims to have PTSD, to which her husband admits to understand some of it but also thinks some of her behavior is “obnoxious.”

‘RHOBH’ Season 13 Storylines

During a panel appearance at BravoCon in October 2022, Erika – whose divorce with ex Tom Girardi and their multiple lawsuits served as a major storyline for the Pretty Mess author during the show’s later seasons – opened up about what direction she’d like to see the show take in season 13.

“I would like for us to have some fun,” the “XXPEN$IVE” singer told Us Weekly. “I think that the last few years have been super heavy and I think that [the] Housewives cast and audience deserves a little bit more fun and a little bit more like, you know, we need to laugh a little.”

Garcelle – whose son Oliver Saunders is featured in a season 10 episode of Vanderpump Rules, in which he makes out with controversial star Raquel Leviss – opened up about what fans can expect during the show’s 13th season, revealing in March 2023 that the cast “just started” filming.

“I think we’re gonna get back to old school Beverly Hills in terms of like glamor and fun, and you know, a little bit of a sisterhood if we can,” she told People at the Emily’s List Pre-Oscar’s Breakfast in Los Angeles. “Even though there’s gonna be drama. So, I’m looking forward to it.”

Why Did Lisa Rinna Leave ‘RHOBH’?

Lisa Rinna revealed she would not be returning for season 13 after joining the franchise during its fourth season, noting that she and Bravo came to a “mutual” agreement about her RHOBH future after her contract ended.

“This is the longest job I have held in my 35-year career and I am grateful to everyone at Bravo and all those involved in the series,” the Days of Our Lives alum said in a statement to In Touch on January 5, 2023, adding, “It has been a fun eight-year run and I am excited for what is to come!”

RHOBH newcomer Diana Jenkins also announced her exit from the show that same month via Instagram, noting that she and partner Asher Monroe are expecting their second child together.

“Due to many factors, this pregnancy is considered high risk and I am on doctor-advised bed rest. To that end, I am not able to devote myself fully to filming the next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” she wrote on January 9. “I would like to thank Bravo and Evolution for allowing me to focus on my pregnancy, and for their support and understanding. I promise to continue sharing my fertility journey with you.”

During a February 2023 appearance on Sherri, Garcelle touched on the forthcoming season of RHOBH, telling daytime talk show host Sherri Shepherd that she’s ready to see new faces on the show following Lisa’s departure.

“You know what, listen, I’m gonna give her credit,” Garcelle said of the Rinna Beauty founder. “She definitely came on the show and made her mark, but now it’s time for new.”

Will Brandi Glanville Be on ‘RHOBH’ Season 13?

Though it is unclear whether Brandi Glanville – who was a friend on season 2, appeared as a full-time cast member on seasons 3 through 5 and made multiple cameos in the following seasons – will return for season 13, a source previously told Us Weekly that “there have been talks” about bringing the New York Times best-selling Drinking and Tweeting author back. 

Additionally, the insider told the outlet that Vanderpump Rules star Lisa Vanderpump’s name has been thrown into the mix amid the cast shakeup; however, a final decision has “yet to be made.” The restaurateur served as a full-time cast member from season 1 through 9, exiting the show halfway through the ninth season.
