BRAVO MEDIA BLINGS BACK AN ALL NEW SEASON OF “THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS” PREMIERING TUESDAY, DECEMBER 1 AT 9PM ET/PT
New Housewives Erika Girardi and Kathryn Edwards Join the Cast for Season Six
NEW YORK- November 5, 2015 -Bravo Media’s “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” returns for season six on Tuesday, December 1 at 9:00pm ET/PT with jaw-dropping bling, wild fun, shocking drama and a few surprises along the way as Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Yolanda Foster, Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson are joined by new housewives Erika Girardi and Kathryn Edwards. A friend of Yolanda’s, Erika Girardi is a blonde bombshell married to one of the highest-powered, top-earning lawyers in the United States, who happens to be 32 years her senior. Erika leads a rich paradox of a double life, overseeing a breathtaking estate by day and performing as an over-the-top, hit-making, sexy star named Erika Jayne by night. New housewife Kathryn Edwards knew Lisa Rinna twenty years ago when they were both starting to make waves in the LA scene. Now married without children to retired football player, Donnie Edwards who is nine years her junior, the pair leads an enviably stress-free life of fun and excitement, splitting their time between Brentwood and San Diego.

This season, Yolanda’s struggle with Lyme disease continues as she goes to extremes in search of a cure, which leads the other women to question her actions. Longtime friends, Lisa Vanderpump and Lisa Rinna, are also in the crossfire as gossip and secrets erupt into a deeply personal conflict between the two. New to the group, Kathryn tries to befriend Erika, but they quickly become embroiled in their own drama and sparks fly when they start speaking the truth. Kyle is just trying to keep her head above water while expanding her store, maintaining friendships with the women and dealing with unexpected personal matters. Reeling from the recent death of her father-in-law, Eileen seeks a much needed apology after questions and details about her marriage arise from another housewife. Whether driving Ferraris in Italy, staying at a glorious house in the Hamptons or receiving VIP treatment at the world’s tallest building in Dubai, nothing will keep the Beverly Hills housewives from shedding tears and hurling accusations while still keeping up impeccable appearances.

Meet the new housewives:
At 18, Erika Girardi left her hometown of Atlanta, Georgia and moved to New York City to pursue her dream of becoming a singer and performer. Two years later, Erika was married and had a son. After divorcing his father, she left New York and moved to Los Angeles where she met and married her current husband, famed trial attorney Tom Girardi. Tom represents high-profile clients, travels extensively for work on one of their two private jets, and has no plans to retire anytime soon.
