The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Beverly Hills may be just a few hours away from Orange County — where Bravo's Real Housewives franchise was born — but the country's most famous zip code couldn't be more different. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the sixth location of the reality series, promises bigger houses, faster cars and more star power than ever before. There's plenty of drama too. Get to know the newest Housewives with our easy guide.

Meet the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

5. Beverly Hills is a whole new ballgame
. Yes, the houses in Orange County are huge and the parties in New York City are glamorous, but the combination of ridiculously opulent real estate and the entertainment business make Beverly Hills a killer combination. "It's a higher-profile lifestyle, of course, with the houses, the glitz and the glossiness," Housewife Lisa VanderPump tells

4. Expect celebrity cameos galore. Housewives Kim and Kyle Richards are the half-sisters of socialite Kathy Hilton (aka Paris and Nicky's mom). Camille Grammer is the ex-wife of Frasier star Kelsey Grammer. So get ready for celebrity cameos. "Originally, I didn't want to do the show because I didn't want to expose my private life, but Kelsey really encouraged me to do so and I respect him as a thespian and an actor," Camille says of her ex.

3. Nothing is off limits. The Grammers' split is just one of many instances the camera caught. "I was really surprised at how much of my life I opened up to the world," Housewife Taylor Armstrong says. "I gave an insight into everything: the good, the bad, the ugly, the uncomfortable, the moments that I regret, but it's my real life."

2. There's no shortage of drama. Public spats between Housewives (see: New York's Bethenny Frankel and Kelly Bensimon and Atlanta's NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak) are practically required. "I don't think we disappoint with that one," VanderPump says. Kyle Richards acknowledges that the season took a toll on her relationship with her sister. "It ended up being a con for sure, but we're sisters at the end of the day and I'm sure eventually things will be OK," she says.

1. This could be the final addition to the Real Housewives franchise. "I think after Beverly Hills, what's left?" Armstrong asks. "We have all the access you could ever imagine. We have Hollywood, fashion, sophistication, glamour. It's unstoppable. Beverly Hills is a brand unto itself."

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premieres Thursday at 10/9c on Bravo.
