The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Season 11 Premieres On Wednesday, May 19 — Watch The Official Trailer, Cast Bios And Photos HERE!

The ladies from the 90210 area code are FINALLY back! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 11 premieres on Wednesday, May 19 at 9pm/8c on Bravo.

Returning are Dorit Kemsley, Erika Girardi, Garcelle Beauvais, Kyle Richards, and Lisa Rinna. They will be joined by new cast member Crystal Kung Minkoff and Sutton Stracke, who is returning as a full-time cast member after appearing as a friend last season. 

Kyle’s sister, Kathy Hilton, is also joining the series as the official friend of the cast this season. Check out the official Season 11 trailer, cast bios, and photos below!

Coming up this season: The women are ecstatic to expand their social bubbles after months of isolation at home.  

This elation is short-lived, however, when Erika Girardi shocks the group with news that she is filing for divorce from her husband of 21 years and is suddenly entangled in a web of legal proceedings. Needing the support of her friends now more than ever, Erika instead finds herself fielding questions from the women who are at odds about whether they can stick up for her.   

Kyle Richards struggles with the realization that her daughters are growing up and her impending empty-nest status. In Kyle’s mind, the pressure she feels to keep her family close now falls onto her oldest daughter Farrah to get married and have children of her own.  

Lisa Rinna takes advantage of being home with her husband Harry, but her biggest challenge seems to be finding quality time with her daughters, both now in serious – and very buzzy – relationships. When she is finally ready to release her long-awaited lip kit line, Rinna Beauty, Lisa worries that the timing may work against her with everyone wearing masks.  

Always looking to stay one step ahead of the game, Dorit Kemsley dives into new endeavors and takes on the task of designing a line of fashion-forward wedding dresses. The challenges of working from home take its toll, however, as her kids are home-schooling with a tutor and her husband PK is occupied with work of his own.  

Garcelle Beauvais realizes that having it all just might be possible, but she has zero down time. Never one to slow down, she splits her efforts between raising her teenage twins, doting on her grandson and searching for the man of her dreams, all while stepping into her dream job hosting a daytime talk show.  

Southern Belle Sutton Stracke looks forward to a fresh start in a new phase of her life, recently sending her daughter off to college and moving into a new home just down the street. With the new place in need of renovations, Sutton suddenly finds herself a tenant to some very familiar landlords.  

No stranger to Beverly Hills’ most elite social circles, Crystal Kung Minkoff quickly finds her footing amongst the ladies. A strict and opinionated mother of two married to Hollywood heavyweight Rob Minkoff, Crystal works as hard as she plays and does not suffer fools gladly.  

Kyle’s sister, the utterly fabulous Kathy Hilton, is by Crystal’s side to help her navigate the group. Sharing a storied family history with Kyle, Kathy is the undisputed queen of the 90210 and – much to the women’s surprise – a prankster at heart always looking for a laugh.  

“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” is produced by Evolution Media for Bravo with Douglas Ross, Alex Baskin, Bill Fritz, John Carr, and Tina Gazzerro Clapp serving as executive producers. Andy Cohen also serves as an executive producer.

Erika Girardi dreamt of being in showbiz at a young age and attended a performing arts high school in her native Atlanta, Georgia. At the age of 18, she moved to New York City to pursue her aspirations. Although Erika got married and had a son not long after moving to New York, she never gave up on her dream of being a singer and a performer. After divorcing her first husband, Erika moved to Los Angeles where she met and married famed trial attorney Tom Girardi. When her son was a teenager, she finally found the time to pursue her performing passion. Her alter-ego Erika Jayne made her smash debut on the music scene in 2007 with her first single "Rollercoaster," which went number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart. Since then, Erika has had several number one Billboard singles, toured the world, and collaborated with the likes of Flo Rida. Erika published a New York Times best-selling memoir titled Pretty Mess and rode her fame into a starring role in Chicago on Broadway, playing Roxie Hart.

With a portfolio of successful television and major film roles under her belt, including The Jamie Foxx Show, NYPD Blue, Coming to America, and Spider-Man: Homecoming, Garcelle has become a versatile force in Hollywood.

Ever ambitious, Garcelle is keeping herself busy by hosting a weekly podcast as well as stepping into her dream job as a daytime talk show host.

Kyle Richards has been acting since she was a child, earning a wide range of credits, including roles in Little House on the Prairie, The Car, The Watcher in the Woods, E.R., and the original Halloween. She recently reprised her role as Lindsey Wallace in Halloween Kills, which will be released in October. Kyle is married to successful real estate broker Mauricio Umansky, and the two recently celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary.

A passionate philanthropist, she is actively involved in fundraising for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Kyle loves to split her time between her homes in Los Angeles, La Quinta and Aspen, but her favorite activity of all is being a mother to her four daughters: Farrah, Alexia, Sophia, and Portia.

The small-town Medford, Oregon native burst into Hollywood using her exotic looks, contagious energy, and famous “hustle” to become one of the most recognizable faces on television. Lisa Rinna’s first big breaks came when she played Billie Reed on NBC's daytime hit Days of Our Lives, as well as the love-to-hate Taylor McBride on Melrose Place. Lisa’s motto is “never say no” and as a result, her long list of credits includes Dancing with the Stars, Sing Your Face Off, All-Star Celebrity Apprentice, Veronica Mars, Entourage, and Sex, Lies and Obsession. Her Lifetime Original movie, Another Woman’s Husband, boasted some of the highest ratings for any film on the network. Lisa also hosted the successful talk show, Soap Talk, for four years, earning four Emmy nominations in the “Outstanding Talk Show Host” category. She is an accomplished New York Times best-selling author, having released three books: The Big, Fun, Sexy Sex Book, Starlit, and Rinnavation. Her Lisa Rinna Collection is currently available on QVC, and her Broadway credits include a star turn as Roxie in the long-running hit musical Chicago. Lisa’s latest venture is a line of lipsticks, lip liner and lip gloss called Rinna Beauty. She and her husband Harry Hamlin live in Beverly Hills and are proud parents to their daughters Delilah and Amelia.

Born and raised in Augusta, Georgia, Sutton Stracke is a southern debutante-turned-Beverly Hills-socialite. In her early 20s, Sutton moved to New York City as an aspiring professional ballet dancer.
