- 10 Seasons
The reality series The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills follows the daily lives of a group of fame-hungry women who spend their days working out, shopping, partying and having plastic surgery in an expensive California community. The series debuted in 2010. The show's original cast included would-be reality stars Camille Grammer, Taylor Armstrong, Adrienne Maloof, Kim Richards, and Lisa Vanderpump. Richards was a former child actress. Grammer was the former wife of actor Kelsey Grammer. Armstrong was the wife of Wall Street mogul Russell Armstrong. Maloof was the daughter of billionaire George J. Maloof Sr. Vanderpump was the wife of restaurant developer Ken Todd. Since the first season, the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has expanded and contracted as various socialites have left and others have joined the show. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is the sixth series in the Real Housewives franchise. The original series, The Real Housewives of Orange County, followed the exploits of wealthy women in another part of Southern California. Other Real Housewives series have been set in New York, Atlanta, New Jersey, Washington DC, Miami, Dallas, and Salt Lake City. The franchise has spawned spin offs. These secondary series have focused on particular cast members. The first spin off of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Vanderpump Rules, followed Lisa Vanderpump and the staff of her restaurant. That spin off spawned a spin off of its own, Vanderpump Rules: Jax And Brittany Take Kentucky. All of the many series in this reality franchise air on the Bravo cable network.
