Following the show’s dramatic twelfth season and an intense three-part reunion that aired back in late 2022, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans are likely wondering when they will see the ladies of the 90210 on their screens once again. In March 2023, cast member Garcelle Beauvais confirmed to PEOPLE that filming for Season 13 had begun in February 2023, teasing that fans can expect the “old school Beverly Hills in terms of like glamour and fun.”
As Page Six notes, Season 13 wrapped production in May 2023, and following some major cast shake-ups, viewers can look forward to a refreshed Housewife line-up when the forthcoming new season makes its much-anticipated debut. And according to Beauvais, the premiere could happen sooner than you think.
The cast changes will come as no surprise to Bravo fans, who know all too well that no Housewife is automatically safe going into a new season — and despite Season 12’s high ratings, two Housewives and a “friend of” have announced their departure ahead of the upcoming series. Read on for everything you need to know about RHOBH Season 13.
The RHOBH Season 13 Cast
Along with Beauvais, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 13 cast will include Sutton Stracke, Erika Girardi, Crystal Kung Minkoff, Dorit Kemsley, and RHOBH veteran Kyle Richards. Although not confirmed by Bravo, anesthesiologist and wife of former NFL star Marcellus Wiley, Annemarie Wiley, is reportedly joining the cast for Season 13. Meanwhile, former RHOBH stars Kim Richards, Denise Richards, and Camille Grammer will also reportedly appear in the new series, as will The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Cynthia Bailey, who was spotted filming for Season 13.
On Jan. 5, longtime cast member Lisa Rinna announced that she had left RHOBH after eight seasons. “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,” she told PEOPLE. “It has been a fun eight-year run and I am excited for what is to come!” According to the outlet, Rinna’s contract expired at the end of Season 12, and after weighing her options, she and Bravo mutually decided that she would not return to the show.
Rinna’s departure is not too surprising given the largely negative reaction to her role in last season’s Kathy Hilton saga, which even got her booed by fans at BravoCon in October, and some celebrities seem elated by her exit. OG RHOBH star Lisa Vanderpump seemingly celebrated the announcement by writing “Ding dong” on Twitter, leaving fans to finish the phrase. Outside of the Bravosphere, Sharon Stone commented on Instagram fan account Queens of Bravo’s post about Rinna’s departure with several applause emojis. However, there was a more positive sentiment among cast members, with Erika calling Rinna “the f*cking GOAT” to TMZ and Sutton telling E! that “she will be missed.”
Andy Cohen also spoke out about Rinna’s departure on his SiriusXM show Andy Cohen Live, praising her impact on the series and leaving the possibility open for a return, despite the positive reception to her exit. “First you’ve gotta give props to Lisa Rinna for being, by the way, eight years. I was surprised when she said it was the longest job she’s ever had,” he said. “But she has been really a huge part of Beverly Hills, and I really do hope that this is a pause. I hope she will come back. I really do.”
On Jan. 5, Diana Jenkins also announced that she was leaving RHOBH after just one season, attributing the exit to her pregnancy with fiancé Asher Monroe. “As many of you know, Asher and I are expecting our second child later this year. You also know that due to many factors, this pregnancy is considered high risk and I am on doctor-advised bed rest,” she told PEOPLE in a statement. “To that end, I am not able to devote myself fully to filming the next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I would like to thank Bravo and Evolution for allowing me to focus on my pregnancy, and for their support and understanding.”
Diana’s exit had already been suspected after she did not join her co-stars at BravoCon in October 2022 and only showed up to the Season 12 reunion virtually due to a positive COVID-19 test, making fans speculate that either she or Bravo was already planning her RHOBH departure.
On June 5, fan-favorite cast member Kathy Hilton — who starred in both Season 11 and Season 12 in a “friend of” capacity — announced that she will not be back for Season 13. Speaking to E! News, Hilton revealed that she is “doing Paris in Love” instead of RHOBH. Despite her absence in the forthcoming season, Hilton teased that “it’s going to be great,” adding: “It’s always interesting and fun and lots of drama.”
Will Kyle & Mauricio’s Reported Split Be Shown On RHOBH Season 13?
Following in the footsteps of #Scandoval on Vanderpump Rules, Bravo reportedly resumed filming RHOBH Season 13 amid Kyle and husband Mauricio Umansky’s rumored separation, according to multiple outlets. Deadline reported on July 10 that cameras were rolling again to capture the aftermath of People reporting on July 3 that the husband and wife of 27 years had been “separated for a while” but still living under the same roof. When a SiriusXM Radio Andy listener called in and asked the host if Bravo was going to “pick back up filming,” he struggled to answer the question. Andy’s final word on the matter: “What I will say is . . . I think that this will be included next season of Beverly Hills in some way, shape, or form. That’s all I’ll say.”
Amid reports that Kyle is dating country singer Morgan Wade — something the RHOBH star has referred to as “just a rumor,” per Page Six — she and Mauricio denied they’re divorcing. “Any claims regarding us divorcing are untrue,” the couple said in a joint Instagram statement on July 4. “However, yes, we have had a rough year. The most challenging one of our marriage. But we both love and respect each other tremendously. There has been no wrongdoing on anyone’s part. Although we are in the public eye, we ask to be able to work through our issues privately. While it may be entertaining to speculate, please do not create false stories to fit a further salacious narrative.”
The RHOBH Season 13 Trailer
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 13 trailer is yet to be released by Bravo. However, given that the bulk of the season has now wrapped filming, fans should expect a first look at the new series in the coming months, likely in early fall.
The RHOBH Season 13 Premiere Date
Speaking at Canada’s Banff World Media Festival on June 13, Beauvais revealed that she thinks RHOBH Season 13 will arrive this fall but did not give a confirmed premiere date. “I’m hearing November is our release date,” she said, before giving a preview at what to expect from the new season. “It’s back to fun and glamour and friendships,” she teased. “It’s not as toxic as it was. I think the last season was pretty hardcore on everybody.”
About a month later, however, Andy said the network had still yet to nail down a RHOBH premiere date. Touting The Real Housewives of New York City’s imminent return, The Real Housewives of Orange County’s “rebound season,” and Luann & Sonja: Welcome to Crappie Lake being a “huge hit,” on his July 10 SiriusXM show, he added, “There’s just so much to rejoice in in the Bravo world right now that we don’t even really need a premiere date for Beverly Hills right now.”
