With season six of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills now over, here's a look at what we have learned from this season; and what next steps the ladies may be taking ...
No more Yo
Yolanda Foster (Hadid) has revealed that she won't be returning to the show, telling her Instagram followers "I would have loved a more graceful exit [than season 6] but sometimes we don't get to control the ending of the chapters in our life." She continued: "I am leaving what's over without denying its past importance in my life." Yolanda has been a cast member since the third season, and the show has documented her marriage to David Foster, helping her daughters enter the modelling industry, and dealing with her Lyme Disease journey.
Season 6 was dominated by discussion about Yolanda's health issues, which caused arguments between many of the women. Perhaps her exit is a blessing in disguise, and will allow the women to move on from the drama caused by Munchausen-gate. With Yolanda making her exit, does this mean that Brandi Glanville will no longer be appearing on the show? Brandi's only remaining ally in the group was Yolanda, so it looks like she may be gone for good.
I don't know about season 7 right now
Is Lisa leaving?
When we spoke to Lisa Vanderpump earlier in the season, she said: “It wasn't a great season for me. I have to say I hated season two, I hated season four, and I wasn't crazy about season six in terms of just getting the attacks from the other women.” She's revealed she's unsure about her return. “I don't know about season 7 right now.” Say it ain't so, Lisa!
Lisa vs. Lisa
Lisa Vanderpump and Lisa Rinna have been friends for years, but cracks in their relationship began to show in Dubai over comments that Vanderpump purportedly made about Kyle Richards. Their fued only got worse at the reunion, when Rinna accused Vanderpump of trying to spin Yolanda's illness in to a storyline. Fans took sides, with many accusing Lisa Rinna of trying to ‘take down' Vanderpump – along with Eileen Davidson. Will the two women be able to mend their friendship, or will season 7 only lead to more bad blood?
Kyle's relationship with her sister Kim has gone through so many phases in the last few years that it's pretty difficult to keep up. In the first and second season, their relationship was strained because of Kim's alcohol issues. When Kim became sober their relationship drastically improved, only to become strained again during season 5.
When Kim returned this year, her and Kyle seemed to be in a much better place – but can the two sisters manage to fully repair the damage that has already been done? And will Kim make a return? It's all to play for next season.
