Cast and synopsis

Cast

Five of the seven wives from season four returned for the fifth installment.[20] Shortly after season four concluded, Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud de Ohoven were fired from the series.[21] Andy Cohen, the executive producer and host, chronicled in his tell-all book on their departure, stating that prior to filming the reunion of season four, he knew it would be their first and last. Cohen went on to describe his displease with Giraud de Ohoven at the reunion and his fantasy of firing her saying, "my mind turned the corner into morphing this into some kind of alternate universe version of the Housewives: “Joyce, you are no longer a Housewife. Please leave the reunion."[22] Despite her departure from the series, Giraud de Ohoven has remained friends with former cast member Vanderpump and guest starred on Vanderpump Rules.[23] Shortly after Gebbia's departure she spoke to Giuliana Rancic on a red carpet saying that it was a "blessing in disguise."[24] On January 21, 2015, on an episode of Watch What Happens Live Andy Cohen admitted to Vanderpump that Gebbia got a "bad edit" saying, "you know she's a PTA mom, we portrayed her with all the sex stuff, and the Wiccan stuff, and that was it. I know there was more to her and I feel like she got an unfair shake," which Vanderpump agreed. With Cohen's revelation it later prompted Gebbia to admitting that she would be open to returning, during Brandi Glanville's podcast. Gebbia also went on to say that she felt validated and appreciated his honesty.[25]

With the departure of the two housewives, Gebbia and Giraud de Ohoven, season five saw the introduction of two new housewives, Eileen Davidson and Lisa Rinna.[26][27][28][29] Rinna initially auditioned for season one, revealed Cohen who then went on to describe that he didn't see her fitting with the show saying, "you know Lisa Rinna was on the first casting tape for Beverly Hills. In the first season of Beverly Hills, I thought "I don't see it. It's weird. It's not what this show is."[30] Despite not being cast in the first season, much speculation occurred in the fourth that Rinna would be joining as well, but only ended up guest starring at Kyle Richard's boutique opening.[31][32][33]

In addition to Davidson and Rinna, season five also saw the guest appearances of former cast members, Taylor Armstrong, Camille Grammer and Adrienne Maloof.[34][35]

Davidson was born and raised in Artesia, and grew up in a Catholic house hold.[36] Davidson went on to pursue acting at the age of twenty-one and built notoriety in, the now cult-classic, The House on Sorority Row . For Davidson this was just the beginning of a successful career with roles in Eternity and Broken Badges. Davidson's most famous roles, however, are playing Ashley Abbott on the daytime soap The Young and the Restless, and also as Kristen DiMera on Days of Our Lives. She later went to win an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress, after three nominations, for her portrayal of Kristen DiMera. Davidson has also had success with writing; she has written four novels with prolific mystery writer Robert Randisi, three of which were published by Penguin Paperback. When Davidson isn't writing or acting she lives in her Malibu home raising her 12-year-old son Jesse, and bonding with her two step sons; 22 year old Duke and 20 year old Vinny. Davidson is happily married to Vincent Van Patten, a former starchily and professional tennis player who is the son of Hollywood legend, Dick Van Patten.[37][38]

Rinna was born in Newport Beach, but at the age of seven her and her family moved to the small town of Medford and from there she was raised. Rinna always was dreamed of something more grand, which lead her to moving back to California to San Francisco where she pursued modelling. Several years after modelling, Rinna switch career paths and decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue acting in which she landed her first television role in The Hogan Family and later went to appear in Baywatch. From that point nothing held Rinna back as she went on to have a successful career with an extensive list of appearances from television to film. Rinna, who is also a daytime actress like Davidson, is widely known for her roles as Billie Reed on Days of Our Lives, as well as Taylor McBride on Melrose Place. Rinna serves a motto of never turning down a job, which leads to her being featured in work such as; Veronica Mars, Entourage, Sex, Lies and Obsession and Another Woman's Husband. Rinna joins The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as no stranger to reality television with appearances including; The Celebrity Apprentice, All-Star Celebrity Apprentice, Sing Your Face Off, Dancing with the Stars, and her very own show Harry Loves Lisa. Rinna has also hosted her own talk show Soap Talk, which she earned four Emmy nominations in the Outstanding Talk Show Host category. Rinna later revisited her modeling days and posed for Playboy. Not only is Rinna a successful model and established actress, she is also a New York Times best-selling author with her three books, The Big, Fun, Sexy Sex Book, Starlit, and Rinnavation. Rinna also takes pride in her Lisa Rinna Collection for QVC.
