'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills': 5 things to look forward to in Season 4 premiere
1. Lisa and Kyle's frosty friendship
Things between Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards still aren't fully repaired when we pick back up. While both women certainly attempt to return to normal after last season's rift, it's clear there's still some deep cracks in their relationship.
2. Brandi's got a new man and money of her own
Brandi Glanville is single no longer. Remember that guy at Kyle's White Party last season who Brandi drooled over, leading to the "morally corrupt" Faye Resnick to claim there had been some bathroom sex? They're an item now, and he's also helping her find a new house, which she can afford thanks to money from her best-selling book. Prepare yourself for lots of sex talk.
3. Kim's got a new man, too
Kim Richards' luck with men in past seasons of "RHOBH" hasn't been so great. (Season 2's Ken, anyone?) But with a year of sobriety under her belt, the fragile little bird seems to have found herself a good guy -- a pit bull pup named Kingsley.
4. The newbies on the block
With snoozefests Adrienne Maloof and Taylor Armstrong given the boot after Season 3, Bravo was in need of some fresh blood. Enter Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud de Ohoven. Look for both ladies to make their entrance at Kyle's B.H. Chamber of Commerce soiree and immediately rub each other the wrong way.
5. The forced "Vanderpump Rules" crossover
The good news? The premiere's a supersized two hours long. The bad news? That second half is just an episode of "Vanderpump Rules" in disguise. Lisa's restaurant SUR, the focus of her spin-off, caters Kyle's party, allowing for Bravo to trick "RHOBH" fans into watching an hour of those catty cocktail waitresses and boring bartenders. Consider yourself warned.
"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" returns for Season 4 at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
