There will be triple the drama when Bravo”s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion special kicks off on Jan. 30 (9 p.m.) – the first in a three-part series that reunites the ladies for heated discussion with Andy Cohen.
And – surprise – Kim Richards will be joining the fray after all.
Though she didn”t participate in the initial filming because she was seeking treatment for alcohol abuse, Richards sat down for a separate chat with Cohen, her first since leaving rehab, which will air as the third installment on Feb. 13 (9 p.m. ET). In the chat, she tells Cohen why she checked into rehab. “I”m an alcoholic,” she says. “I”m an alcoholic.”
What else can you expect us has an exclusive look at the show (see above clip). But let”s break it down further:
In part one, expect the ladies – Taylor Armstrong, Camille Grammer, Adrienne Maloof, Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump – to delve into the confrontation between Camille and Taylor at Lisa”s tea party, among other hot-button issues and feuds. And clearly there”s still bad blood among many of the women.
Kyle tangles with Lisa; Camille and Taylor rehash their issues (“She completely threw me under the bus,” Camille says, referring to Armstrong); and Lisa and Adrienne spar after Lisa is accused of selling stories to tabloids.
On the second part (airing Feb. 6, 9 p.m. ET), newbie Brandi Glanville joins the women to defend her controversial comments all season – only she seems to cause even more trouble.
“I was being bullied in a room and I had no friends,” she says, reflecting on a brutal game night in which she got into an argument with Kim and Kyle Richards. But it”s Taylor Armstrong who seems to have the most issues with her behavior, calling out Glanville for threatening the other ladies.
Richards”s dramatic sit-down will air last, and she will be joined by Dana Wilkey, another “friend” of the Housewives, to discuss the now-infamous game night in more detail. That will be followed by a “lost footage” special, airing Feb. 16, which promises to feature more footage from the fight between Brandi and Kyle at the tense Malibu beach party.
