We've all heard the rumors before but now Bravo has finally confirmed the news. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been officially added to the network's growing docu-drama franchise, following installments from New York, Atlanta, New Jersey, Washington and the original Orange County.
Not much has been revealed about the pilot season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills though it has been rumored that filming will begin this month, with a 10-month commitment from its cast. Bravo has also yet to reveal the show's cast but sources are gradually leaking out the identities.
Similar to the premise of the other five editions of the Real Housewives franchise, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will revolve around outgoing women who reside in a city "where being seen and who you know is everything." The series is being produced by Evolution Media, which is the same group behind the Orange County installment.
The Daily Truffle speculates that at least one of celebutante Paris Hilton’s aunts is on board.
Meanwhile, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is just one of the shows integrated in Bravo's plan to expand its original programming. Other new series on the slate include Pregnant in Heels, Million Dollar Decorators, and Miami Social Club.
