After RHOBH Season 12 wrapped, the show was put on pause as producers scrambled to decide how best to proceed.
“Beverly Hills, we’re taking a minute break,” Bravo king Andy Cohen told E! News.
“And then we’ll be back shooting with them in the new year.”
After a period of downtime, contracts have been handed out and filming is set to kick off any day now, according to Radar Online (LVP’s fave publication!).
Here’s everything we know about RHOBH Season 13.
RHOBH Season 13 Cast
Who will be in RHOBH Season 13?
There’s been rumours banging around that a coupla new ladies will be joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 13 to shake up the vibe. And goss page Deuxmoi has just spilled the tea.
Apparently one of the new gals is socialite Allison Melnick who Paris Hilton fans will recognise from her iconique series The World According To Paris.
“She’s close with the Hilton family and recently got close with Garcelle [Beauvais],” the source claimed.
“Production believe she is the ‘chaos’ Beverly Hills needs and will really help stir up dynamics.”
They added that Ayda is “still unclear” and “there’s another wife in the mix.”
Said other Housewife very well could be the gal Deuxmoi teased last week, Ayda Field AKA the missus of singer Robbie Williams (ya mum will be thrilled!).
The source claimed that the former X Factor UK judge has already “signed on.”
The insider added that a supermodel is also joining the cast.
Given that Melnick is a socialite, bar owner, and reality star, I doubt it’s her.
Sneaky sources told Queens of Bravo that Crystal Minkoff is back and she’s bringing one of her ex-14 friends along for the ride.
Apparently the idea to have Crystal return with one of those friends who ditched her (as discussed on the show) was an idea cooked up by Andy Cohen himself.
So are we getting three new Housewives, along with Crystal’s mate? Or is Crystal’s mate the aforementioned supermodel? Who knows!
Elsewhere, Brandi Glanville teased on social media that she may or may not have her diamond back.
She posted a sneaky shot to social media that had fans gagging:

She’s currently filming Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip Season 4.
Kyle Richards, Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke have also all but confirmed they’re back for the new season.
As for the others? We’ll see, my friends…
Who has been fired from RHOBH?
Fans were shocked to learn that after eight seasons of wreaking havoc, Lisa Rinna had stepped away from the show.
She recently confirmed the news in a statement toPEOPLE, revealing that her time on the show had come to an end after months of speculation.
“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 said in a statement.
“It has been a fun eight-year run and I am excited for what is to come!”
The publication revealed that Rinna’s contract was up (as Kathy Hilton revealed in the RHOBH Season 12 reunion) and both she and Bravo opted not to go forward.
Rinna’s last season certainly wasn’t her best and her antics led to a massive revolt from fans.
Following the news that Rinna had left The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, her mate Diana Jenkins soon followed (although I doubt this one was a mutual decision).
“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,” Diana told PEOPLE.
“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. I promise to continue sharing my fertility journey with you.”
Diana starred in one season of the show and was an instant flop, with viewers criticising her confusing arguments and the fact that she bailed on the reunion.
Her excuse for skipping the reunion? The old ‘rona reason, but even Andy Cohen cast doubt over the validity of her excuse on WWHL.
I expect more firings and demotions will be announced shortly.
Who should be cast in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 13?
The powers that be at Bravo are handing out contracts as we speak and it’s one of the most important decisions they’ll ever make.
ICYMI: next season is RHOBH Season 13 and historically, that has been an unlucky number. I mean, look at RHONY. That died in the ass with Season 13 due to shitty casting decisions and they need to avoid making that mistake again with our beloved Beverly Hills.
In order to revive the series, I’ve come up with a clever proposal of who should be hired for a surefire hit season.
Here’s our dream cast for RHOBH Season 13.
Kyle is the glue that holds everything together. The queen of RHOBH. The last remaining OG. We need her on the show and I hope she never leaves.
I know there were rumblings about her leaving after this season but she personally told me while she was in Australia that she has no intentions of quitting any time soon.
I am concerned that she was particularly distressed after this reunion, but she’s been through worse with her other sister Kim. I reckon she needs a redemption season, but we’ll get to that in a sec.
She’s an icon, she is a legend, and she is the moment.
Garcelle is the future of RHOBH. She’s not going anywhere.
This woman. This woman right here. She was born to be a Housewife.
She’s quirky, eccentric, has an overt sense of style (more kitty sweaters, please!), freely displays her emotions and will read a bitch if she needs to.
The show is called ~Real Housewives~ and there’s nothing more real than having your lavish life snatched away from you.
We’ve been watching Erika Jayne’s post-Tom journey with our jaws on the floor this whole time. Why stop now?
Not only that, but everyone finally got their wish this season: the Fox Force Five is no more.
Don’t you want to see what happens next? I sure as shit do!
Denise Richards had a shit go of it the first time around and she deserves a redemption season.
With her return to the Housewives on Ultimate Girls Trip, Brandi proved that she’s still absolutely brilliant television.
No offence to certain Housewives who will remain unnamed, but it pisses me off that Bravo wastes salary money on ladies who don’t pull their weight.
One thing is for sure, Brandi Glanville will damn well earn her paycheque and give us one hell of a season.
Why Camille Meyer hasn’t been invited back in a full-time capacity is astounding to me.
Every time she pops up on-screen my eyes light up because I know we’re in for some reality TV GOLD.
Camille is a RHOBH OG and deserves to be welcomed back into the fold to help revive the flailing franchise.
RHOBH Friends for Season 13
RHOBH has had an Eilegend-shaped hole in it since we left.
I wanna see what our soap opera QUEEN has been up to since almost throwing down with Kim Richards in Amsterdam.
I’d hate to see Dorit demoted because I honestly love her so much, but she brought nothing this season. Niete. Nada. Zilch. Other than fabulous looks and a shoulder to cry on. And she can do both these things in a friend capacity.
Attend the cast trips and wow us with her lewks and also be the voice of reason when shit hits the fan with the more chaotic girls in the group.
When the morally corrupt Faye Resnick is around, chaos ensues.
And this is the kind of chaos we need!
RHOBH Guests for Season 13
I know Kathy Hilton said she wouldn’t return to the Housewives if the gruesome twosome are involved, but how about as a guest?
I’m hoping that she and Kyle will be able to repair their rift with a sit-down sans Lisa Rinna and her wicked smirk.
Plus from what I hear Kathy’s salary is monstrous which is unfair given that she wouldn’t really bring as much as, say, a Camilla or a Brandi.
Having all three Richards sisters on our screens is like the power of three uniting and blessing the world with its magic.
If anyone can save RHOBH, it’s the Richards sisters.
The power of three will set us free. Lisa Vanderpump
Okay, I know she’d never in a million years agree to film with Kyle, Rinna, Erika etc, but I reckon she’d defs film with Camille, Denise, Sutton and Garcelle!
Just having a scene or two with LVP throwing mass shade at the other girls from afar would be *chef’s kiss*.
As I said earlier, casting announcements should be dropping shortly. In the meantime, here’s who’s rumoured to be in and who’s rumoured to be out.
RHOBH is now streaming on Hayu.
