The fresh crop of Arena’s Real Housewives live the champagne wishes and caviar dreams lifestyle like no one else on television, so be there when the cameras move in to 90210 for the Australian premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, on Tuesday, May 24 at 8.30pm.
This series, the happy homemakers hail from one of the most talked about and affluent cities in the world, Beverly Hills, and these ladies truly are the dripping-in-diamonds, best-boob-job-in-town, botoxed, mega-mansion, filthy-rich.
The much-hyped series features six new housewives who enjoy the lavish, pampered and plastic lifestyle that only Beverly Hills can provide. They own basketball teams, casinos in Las Vegas, fine dining restaurants and are married to movie stars and plastic surgeons.
Camille Grammer, a former dancer and the now ex-wife of Kelsey Grammer, is using this opportunity to step out of her husband’s shadow. Often showing off her dance moves and flirting outrageously with her gorgeous male friends while her husband works in New York, she owns a TV production company and raises her two children with the help of four nannies.
Adrienne Maloof is a member of the mega-rich Maloof family, which owns the Sacramento Kings as well as the Palms Casino in Las Vegas, Adrienne is an expert in business and martial arts. The mother of three young boys is married to a famous plastic surgeon, making her a great friend with benefits for the other housewives.
Lisa VanderPump, a British mother of two, has two restaurants, owns a skincare brand and writes a skincare column in a well known Beverly Hills magazine. Living in an enormous French chateau style home with husband Ken, she serves her pintsize pooches, Giggy, Picachu and Lollypop, breakfast in bed every day.
Taylor Armstrong is married to venture capitalist Russell but owns her own business, volunteers and takes care of her ‘little princess’ daughter, Kennedy. It’s Taylor’s plastic surgery and enormous top lip that makes the biggest impression of the series, with Adrienne’s husband injecting her face with fillers in the first episode.
Kim and Kyle Richards are the sisters of Kathy Hilton, the mother of notorious socialites Paris and Nicky. Both Kim and Kyle are former child actresses who found fame as Disney girls. Kyle, married to high-end realtor Mauricio, has four children and Kim is a single mother of four who is looking to expand her brood, but needs to find a man first.
Following the 8.30pm series’ premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Arena launches The Real Housewives of D.C. at 9.30pm.
In the US capital of Washington D.C., five new Real Housewives explore politics, high society, and racial issues, as well as how the proximity to political power dictates where one fits in society.
Meet these connected D.C. power players who are there for all the most important cultural events, political galas, gallery opening and fundraisers in Washington society; Mary Schmidt Amons, the true Washingtonian and granddaughter of a well-known radio and TV personality; Lynda Erkiletian, the mother hen and owner of D.C.’s top modeling agency; feisty Brit Catherine Ommanney, married to a White House photographer; Michaele Salahi, the model and founder of D.C.’s America’s Polo Cup who became the focus of media attention after crashing President Obama’s White House state dinner; and Stacie Scott Turner, a Harvard grad, active political fund-raiser and philanthropist.
