The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is supposed to be the Bruce Jenner of the Real Housewives franchise, which means that it’s supposed to be the elegant swan amongst a bunch of drunken, sloppy, can’t-act-right messes. I mean, it’s always been trash, but Bravo has said that the RHOBH is more about opulence and glamour and less about drunken wrecks ripping each other’s weaves out. But well, they brought back Brandi Glanville and added two actresses so may the glass throwing and trick slappin’ begin!
