Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Goes Bigger, Blonder for Season 2

Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey join Kyle & Co.


They're baaack! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will return for a second spin with all six of the original 'Wives bringing their diamonds and drama.

"It really is a rollercoaster of a season," Kyle Richards promises. Her best frenemy last season, Camille Grammer, adds, "It's going to be filled with a lot of drama – maybe even more drama than last year." (Is that even possible?)

Fellow BH 'Wife Kim Richards also reveals you'll see a new side of her this time around. "Last season, people saw a shattered Kim. I came into this season, I feel, powerful and strong. I am not going to say I haven't had rough moments... I'm tiny but mighty!"

And while they aren't officially Real Housewives, Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey will add to the Louboutins and lunches this season as well. Brandi, a friend of Adrienne Maloof, is no stranger to dramapades – the longtime model became a tabloid fixture after her husband Eddie Cibrian left her for his now-wife LeAnn Rimes. Oh yeah, and she's buddies with Cedric. Yipes. (Learn more about Brandi in her Bravo bio video.)

The other newbie friend of the 'Wives, Dana Wilkey, is the party planning brains behind that lavish tea party Taylor threw for Kennedy's fourth birthday. (Get to know Dana in her Bravo bio video.) Dana left home at just 15, and since then has built an impressive empire that also includes Adwil Agency, a boutique web application development company and product placement firm.

Save the date: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' second season kicks off September 5.
